OUR FIRST LADY SPEAKS To you--who are completing the three years of preparation for employment at Harriet Whitney Vocational High School--go my greetings and all good wishes. ' Perhaps I should stop with that, but I cannot refrain from adding a review of the factors which aside from your skill will con- tribute to your success. Let me enumerate these items as they have been presented to you many times: democracy, adjustment, foresight, work, a sense of humor, emotional control, health. Democracy leads the list because it seems to provide the con- ditions necessary to the successful fulfillment of the other factors. Adjustment, adaptation to circumstances or events that are beyond our control is a basic principle. It does not infer accep- tance of conditions which one can alter but does preclude the futile beating of wings against immovable walls of opposition. Foresight is that which Santayana avers is uthe greatest gift of gods to men.H It is the ability by which we are able to look ahead and plan a long time course which will lead to success. Only through it can we be masters of our fate. Work, and the joy in it, is the cornerstone on which our school is founded. No more need to be said. . Combine with joy in work a sense of humor to lighten the strain, when life becomes tense, and there is provided a safety valve for disturbed emotions. I All of this, of course, presupposes an ability to preserve emotional control. Hate, anger, jealousy, and envy are counter irv ritants leading away from success. Self discipline and self res- traint are the prerequisites of a happy life. Without health, all other factors fail except for the most persistent individual who can live above pain. Throughout your three years of school, health has been approached from the positive side Given healthy bodies at birth, your responsibility is to so obey the laws of health that a similar degree is maintained for life. I have indicated briefly the factors which with skill have been stressed in your stay with us. May you proceed on the path of employment happy and unafraid! Ethel Wooden Principal

NEW FACES GOING PLACES Along with the new building the girls have been very fortunate in having many new teachers and a few new shops Among the new shops is Cosmetology with Mrs. Edith Bullard as the very capable instructor. The girls are progressing rapidly under the supervision of Mrs. Bullard, and the shop already has the reputation of improving the appearance of the Whitney girls. The Power Machine shop with Miss Mildred Pickering as adviser is very interesting with its many types of commercial machinery. The way seems are zipped is amazing! We also have Miss Cecelia Earhart instructing in laundry work and planning the program for the Household Management classes. The girls in the Tea Room have been very capable in serving and preparing luncheons under the expert supervision of Miss Lois Burman. The food is so attractively arranged that it begs to be eaten. Mrs. Vivian Miller and Mrs. Helen Merickel have been working with Foods sophmores and juniors. The Pastry shop with its deli- cious pies and cakes is the result of their workmanship. The girls are becoming very speedy typists under the capable instruction of Mrs. Margaret Bellemore, who also teaches the dictaphone and ediphone. The new teachers of related subjects are Miss Adrienne Curtis in English and Miss Thelma Howey in Social Problems and American History. Both of these work with the Retail Selling girls. Lucky retailers! Last but not least among our new faces going places this year is Mrs. Margaret Stoepler of typing and Mrs. Nellie Gerold in charge of the library. Mrs. Margaret Dwyer is the head of Distribu- tive Education evening classes. Mrs. Edith Sotherland assists in the office. I imagine the girls who have been tardy know Mrs. Sotherland quite well since she issues the admittance slips. Can you imagine a man in the building? If you wonder who takes care of us just ask Mr. Quaintaince, our custodian. We thank Mrs. Mary Wilde and Mrs. Clara Horner for the splendid way in which they have kept our halls so spick and span. 14
