Dear Class of 1951,
Although you are finishing high school at a time when our country
and the whole world are establishing a -garrisonfstate civilization, please do
not feel that all is lost. Our lives will be different, there will be greater
sacrifices, and many people, probably everyone, will be giving greater parts
of their earnings and time for the common good.
However, democracy and the forces of Good in the world will even'
tually triumph, within our lifetime, we can hope. Despite controversy, prob'
lems, mistakes, and tribulations, our America is strong. You in the Class
of 1951, with millions of other Americans, can establish such a force for
Peace that all the world can live in Peace. Let's work for it!
Your Princif pal
