TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1943:
Perhaps a class has never graduated from
our high school which so deserved congratu-
lations and best wishes for the future. In finish-
ing up your work this year, you have been con-
fronted by untold difficulties caused by frequent
changes in teaching personnel, withdrawals
from your ranks, and tasks imposed upon you
in carrying out the war effort of the school.
Many of you will go into the service of your
country, some will go on with their education,
and others will go into business. You have been
well prepared and trained to face crises with
calm and judgment. You will justify the faith
and confidence placed in you by the school
and community of Garden City. Carry on!
FRANK R. WASSING.
Superintendent of Schools.
Miss Margaret Crane, who for several years
has served in the capacity of adviser and
teacher, left on May 15 to take an executive
position in Washington. We have long appre-
ciated Miss Crane's enthusiasm and congeni-
ality, and her helpful advice: and we hope that
she will be as successful and as well-liked in
her new position as she has been in our school.

TO THE GRADUATING CLASS:
lust twelve years ago you entered the first grade of the Public School Sys-
tem. Little did you think at that time of the program which you were to follow
until your graduation from High School. I too, twelve years ago, entered upon
my first year in Garden City: and little did I dream that you and I would be, as
it were, graduating this Iune of 1943.
Much has happened during this period, and you can now look back over
the long stretch and measure your own growth and development. You are now
ready to enter college, business, or the services of the United States govern-
ment. You take with you the pattern of training which this school and its
teachers have so faithfully endeavored to establish for you. Into the weaving
of this pattern have gone high ideals, high scholarship, a broad individual
program, an appreciation of the better things of life, a thoughtfulness for the
other fellow, a desire for service, a recognition of good citizenship, and a desire
to achieve. '
Your teachers and I have worked to make these qualities part of you
and your every-day living. You go forth into adult life where you will be
judged by a very critical world. It will ask you three questions: How well are
you prepared? What can you do? And, more particularly: Are you a person
of high character? If you endeavor to give to the world the best which your
teachers have tried to develop in you, you will have no fears. The world will
welcomegyou with open arms.
But as you go to meet what lies ahead, you do not go alone. You will
carry with you the good wishes and hopes of all your teachers: and I, in a way,
will march along with you. You will have my help whenever needed, my
advice and best council, my guidance and direction: and we both, you the
Class of 1943 and I, its Principal, leave behind us for each succeeding class, a
school dedicated to the highest ideals of young manhood and young woman-
hood. Let those who follow us continue to build with the plumb of honor, the
level of truth, and the square of integrity, courtesy and high scholarship.
Mr. Coulbourn, who has been principal of Garden City High
School for twelve years, is leaving this year for an executive posi-
tion in a business firm in New York. We, the Class ot 1943, thank
Mr. Coulbourn for all he has done to make our school an outstanding
educational institution: and for all the help and guidance he has
given us throughout our high school career. We wish him success
and happiness in his new position, and we express the hope that
in future years, we will not lose contact with "I . C." who has indeed
been our guardian angel.
