On Thursday morning, June 5, 1930, two hundred thirty-one boys and girls will
graduate from the Garfield school. This is the largest graduating class this year from
any. East Bay junior high school, and is the largest class ever to leave Garfield.
Eleven members of the class will take part in the program. The "Class Statistics" will
be presented by Douglas Knight and Leonard Norton. Roberta Hector will speak on
the Garfield motto: "Knowledge Opens the Portals of Success." The eight ideals of Gar-
field students: Labor, Learning, Courage, Responsibility, Reverence, Integrity, S rvice,
Vision, will be presented by Gregory Stout, Jack Pickett, Glenn Allison, Richa d De
Lancie, Eleanor Mae Edson, Dorothy Davidson, Katherine Parsons, and Roberta Shaw.
The class song, "Song of Farewall from the Caravan," by Kountz, will be sung
entire class. The presentation of letters will close the program. Members of the class
are looking forward with pleasure to the party to be given in the afternoon of graduation
day, in the school cafeteria.
Soon the halls of Garfield will be silent again, and another High Nine class will have
passed on to higher education. -
Most of us will be a trifle eager to leave this school and find out for ourselves how it is
at high school, but we may soon regret that we ever left the easy lessons and homelike
atmosphere of Garfield.
Our lessons now may seem hard, but when we go on in school, We shall find that they
were comparatively easy.
Others of us will go to different Schools and make new friends, but he who does not
remember the splendid teachers and ine school spirit at Garfield is certainly lacking in
an essential of his education.
Some of us will most likely go out into the business world before long. We
help but remember the fine sportsmanship and the high scholastic standard for
Garfield is so far-famed.
Many High Nine classes have passed on before us and many more will do so, but we
hope that we have made a pattern for future High Nine classes.

A MESSAGE TO GRADUATES - JUNE, 193 0
As I sit at my desk to w
from a song which was po
Your graduation theme,
rite my semi-annual message, there comes to my mind a line
pular in the far-off days "when I was your age." I remember
that it was a rather sad song, although I have forgotten all
except the one line: "The years roll slowly by, Lorena!"
To youth, the years often do "roll slowly by," or so it
appears to the impatience and ambition of that period of
life. To me, the years of my 'teens were long years, as yours
seem now to many of you. But when once the responsibili-
ties of the "twenties" arrived, my years. no longer "roll
slowly by." And now! They gallop, they race, they hurdle
by! So they will with you, when you take on the responsi-
bilities of grown-up life.
It seems scarcely possible that a year has flown by since the
last June class prepared to leave Garfield. But here you are,
more than two hundred strong, about to receive your honors
and take your place with the three thousand six hundred
eighty-eight Garfield graduates who have preceded you.
"So spins the flying world awayfj
repeated, may well serve as Garfield's farewell to you. On
the wall of our court is our motto: "Knowledge Opens the Portals of Success." Below
it are the splendid words,
Labor, Learning, Courage, Integrity, Service, Responsibility,
Carry with you in memory the picture of our beautiful court, and remember the silent
lessons given you as you h
ave passed through it daily for three years.
As long as you live, keep your minds open to wholesome knowledge. Let the ideals
and fine qualities suggested by our eight chosen words be your inspiration and guide
May honor and success
be yours. As you leave us, all your Garfield teachers bid you
D. L. HENNESSEY, Principal.
MEN YVHO TRY
I am not a great believer
In the thing that men call luck.
It takes hard and downright digging
E'er the vein of gold is struck.
Dame Fortune may be fickle,
But none of us can deny
That she loves to lay her treasure
At the feet of men who try.
JANE FLOWER, Low Eigblb.
