Seemingly impassable barriers loom before us Sometimes by spurts of genius, then by sheer Often we despair, But always a way opens before us. We toil on. Years come, years gog still we work. Halfway up we look around. Still the top is hidden, our surroundings hazy On we go with newly-kindled hope. Times go faster now. Suddenly we see in the distance the top Hidden by the clouds, but faintly there. Swiftly we toil, more eager now With veiled goals revealed, A way to ambitions shown. Then close to the top, a ravine halts us, Too wide to cross, the depth concealed. Back go the workers To Find another way, to struggle on. The shirkers and the laggards stop dismayed, Then start the easy journey downward towa The picked ones strive on and Burst from the mists. Ahead we see the top: We cheer, race madly toward the goal. Beyond-we see new horizons, New worlds and new barriers to conquer. Tom Wy blue, to be overcome drudgery. rd obliteration. mond . . PRESIDENTS ADDRESS Today we reach the end of our pleasant sojourn in the Fordson High Shool and commemorate twelve years of school lite and educa- tion under the guidance of a well trained faculty. I would like to express gratitude and appreciation to our parents who have sacrificed much so that we could come this far in obtaining an education. After having our ears scrubbed and being sent off to school for twelve years, we begin to appreciate the true value of the opportunities that have been ours. Our feeling of security in life is being replaced by a feeling of responsibility. In our school days we gave little thought to our future. Most of our times were spent over school problems. We did not think of the sheltered life we led or consider how well we were protected from economic troubles. But now the challenge of the unknown future is becoming more and more important. WVe are now choosing the occupations we would like to follow. Some of us will practice in the field of mechanics, a few as salesmen, others as apprentices, and a number will further our educations in the universities. Regardless of the activity that we choose, I know that you will join me in wishing the members of this graduating class the best of luck in achieving the goals that we have set for ourselves. May we always aspire to a higher goal and achieve distinctions in our respective fields which will make us a credit to our school and community. I think I am speaking for every member of this graduating class when I sa th t th' ' ' ' y a is commencement is an occasion to whrch we have been looking forward since the day we enrolled as just another group of freshmen. We have been picturing ourselves as majestically march- ing up to the stage to receive our diplomas. At last this eventful day ias arrived. To every fellow graduate I would like to offer my con- gratulations. i l 5 I Y wp ii ?
