past year I hardly need to read the questions:
"Is Mary's age correct as stated? Is she a
citizen of the United States? Is she trust-
worthy? Would you trust her with valuable
war information? What can you say about
her health? Was she absent much for sick-
ness? For tardiness? etc." Fortunately,
Mary was in school this fall long enough for
me to learn something about herwnough
to answer the questions. However, many of
these requests are for pupils who were here
before my coming and in their cases I call
upon other teachers in the building to fill in
the knowledge not shown in the record form.
This won't be necessary for you boys and
girls because the new record system gives all
this personal information. Our next request
will show 'you how the new record form
works, how your record may be used in the
This calls for a character reference. It
appears that James twe'll call him thatb has
applied for work in some large business where
he will be exposed to large sums of money.
The company wants all the information we
can give on James as they can't afford to take
any chances. James was in the class of 1944
but left last year, so we have a fairly com-
plete story on him. After filling in the usual
information on subjects, grades, etc., we
come to the more personal items. This is one
of those cases I don't like. Because on the
Personality Record of this boy there have
been recorded estimates by ten different
teachers covering the qualities of "Serious-
ness of Purpose, Industry, Initiative, In-
fluence, Concern for Others, Responsibility,
and Emotional Stability." These ratings for
james are low and I doubt that they will be
of any help to him in securing this position.
Then there are questions about truancy,
attitude toward teachers, attitude of other
pupils, etc. All in all, this form gives quite
a complete picture of a pupil and if one didn't
know james personally, he would have a
pretty good idea of his general make-up.
I wonder if this boy realized when he was in
school that he was making a record that some
day would prove so important to him?
It is too late to do anything about James'
record. But what about yours? It isn't too
late for you. You are making your record
right now. Each day you contribute some-
thing to that record, either through class-
room recitation, or after school activity.
Make a good record. Leave the kind of re-
cord behind you that future principals will
enjoy passing on to those agencies always
writing your school for information to help
predict your probable success in their line of
work. Make a record that you can count on
to be of real help to you in landing those jobs
that you have set your heart on. Pardon-
the phone-back again. That was the tele-
phone company wanting us to recommend
two senior girls to train as operators. An-
other trip to the safe and the Record Book
of the class of 1944.
One closing thought. Remember--
YOU MAKE YOUR OWN RECORD.
We merely record it!

WHAT ARE YOU TAKING AWAY
WITH YOU FROM CROSBYeAND
WHAT ARE YOU LEAVING BEHIND?
Oh-oh!--Here it comes-a LECTURE-
No, this is not exactly a lecture-Let's
just let our hair down a minute and call
this a modified FIRESIDE CHAT-with
a few live coals thrown in. MY FRIENDS,
and if I can't rightfully call you that, I don't
care how little history you have learned
from me. You are about to graduate. Your
parents are proud of you, and glad. I am
glad, also. It has been my pleasure to
