CHARLES E. MATTE, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR This being the first issue of the Dlman Vocational High School Xearbook, it is the hope that all our graduates will carry with them "Down the Road to Journey's End" a memory not only of their particular shop, but of the entire QWWA 6.70-M Alma Mater.

JOSEPH P. GILLIGAN, DIRECTOR Graduation means that you will soon commence to use the knowledge, training, skills and friendships that the past four years' experience have given to you, while meeting new experiences that the future will place before you. You will be called upon many times to analyze your own capacities and interests in order that you may better fit yourself into any new situation that faces you in the future. 0pportunity's door is wide open to you in Industrial America. The deserving and progressive employee or the purposeful, far-seeing craftsman, including our veterans, who accept a challenge to a place in the sun, will find no doors of oppor- tunity swing wider than those labelled "Welcome, graduates of Vocational Schools."

MR. ARTHUR H. SUNDERLAND h The modern Diman Vocational High School of today, 1950, on Hartwell Street, Fall River, in all its prestige of buildings and equipment is indeed a credit to the sound planningof a far- seeing School Committee, under the guidance of a distinguished Mayor, the Honorable William P. Grant, Chairman, an erudite Superintendent of Schools, Mr. William S. Lynch, and a progressive Director, Mr. Joseph P. Gilligan. In particular, its culmination as a leading American public Vocational High School is due in generous measure to the vision of an audacious, though humble, member of our Fall River School Committee, Mr. Arthur H. Sunderland. Overwhelmingly obsessed with the burning desire of a public servant to satisfy the industrial and educational needs of ambitious Fall River youth, Mr. Sunderland never wavered in his efforts to convince his colleagues of the worthy ends of vocational training. Nature endowed him with sufficient nervous and physical energy to fight the forces of opposition and criticism, often unwarranted, in his fulfillment of an educational ideal --- a State- aided Vocational High School. The introduction of required physical training by Mr. Sunderland, as well as organized interscholastic athletics, was the contribution of an untiring worker for a well-balanced school program in our vocational unit. Because of his foresight, Diman Vocational High School boasts of one of the best-equipped school gymnasium and assembly halls in Bristol County, furnished as it is with a regulation basketball playing court, lavatories, ten showers, spacious locker rooms and an efficient air- conditioning unit. ' The adjoining cafeteria, with full cooking equipment and service, caters to the daily nutri- tional needs of the entire faculty and student body. It can be truthfully expressed by the Class of 1950, for the Director, Faculty and entire student body, that Committeeman Sunderland is a man of strength of character, a kind and sym- pathetic heart, and a deep understanding of youth's problems. His monument will be the Diman Vocational High School and his name deeply engraved in the annals of Fall River Education.
