The Keysffone 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 near future. 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! Principal Lawrence Stuart 41 lk Sk WHAT ARE YOU TAKING AWAY WITH YOU FROM CROSBYeAND WHAT ARE YOU LEAVING BEHIND? Oh-oh!--Here it comes-a LECTURE- I'll bet. 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 Nine

As I hastily sort it, com- mitting a good part of it to the waste paper basket, I have several first class letters that need immediate attention and should be of interest to you. The first letter I start to answer sends me to the safe to the record book of the class of 1928. It appears that John Smith, who graduated with that class, entered military service shortly after Pearl Harbor, saw ac- tion in several major battles, and received wounds necessitating his discharge. He has applied for further educational training at the government's expense and this letter calls for a copy of his High School Record. Not only is it a pleasure to state that John graduated near the top of his class with a good four year average, but that his teachers had reported him as being serious of purpose, self-reliant, and conscientious. Other things being equal, John will be allowed to take that training program at government expense. The next letter calls for information about Mary Jones. She is now in Connecticut and has applied for work in a defense industry. I have received so many of these forms the Iz'1'ghI

fC571e Keystone - KJ ' watch most of you climb from the first grade to where you are to-day. Your diploma will be a label-not one which says EDJER- CATED B'GOSH!, but one which indicates that you have passed through four years of training-four difficult, though not unpleas- ant, years, during which you were shown certain tools and had their uses explained. You now look forward to an evening which you term COMMENCEMENT. That evening will be the last time in your lives that you will be all of you gathered to- gether in a single room. Think of those facesethat thought is what you are truly to take away from Crosby with you-and at the same time, leave behind. On that same evening, try and try sincerely as you see the proud faces of your parents before youetry to understand the many sacrifices which they have made to bring you to this point. Your debt to them is one you can never fully repayAone for which no further repayment is asked than the privilege of seeing you thus before them. There is, however, a way in which they may be fur- ther repaid, and that is that throughout your lives, you may ever keep before you the cardinal principles of PRUDENCE, JUSTICE, FORTITUDE and TEMPER- ANCE. Live these, and the three forces which have sought to mould your character may be fulfilledeyour SCHOOLgy 0 u r HOMEiyour CHURCHAthis is our be- quest to you. Sincerely, Albert E. Weymouth lk lk ik THE JANITOR'S POINT OF VIEW This business of making up a little article for the Keystone is getting to be a bad habit, but it does get results. You may remember that last year the importance of trying to get on the honor roll was used as the main topic. Well, we have had quite a few members of the alumni as visitors during this school year' and some of them are doing all right, too, nice uniforms, some medals, service stripes, etc., besides being pictures of health and right living. And here's the pay-off. Almost without exception, these boys, who, when they were in high school were about average, said to me, "If I had only studied a little harder, it would have been so much easier to make the grade in the service." So, boys and girls, try for the honor roll. It won't hurt you a bit, and while it won't do me any particular good, I'll still be proud that you graduated from Crosby.
