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!

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
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
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.
