MR. D. M. HILLIARD. PRINCIPAL
TI-tE PFQIIXICIPAIJS MESSAGE
The message from Humes to the Seniors this year is presented by one
who labored in the Memphis City Schools almost seventy years ago.
"The history of the past holds up to our view, if we will count through
all ages, a multitude of the truly great. All of these have arisen through
one single path, the only path. ln this path lie self-culture, self-support and
love of right, knowledge, and mental action. These things with all other
kinds of culture are developed within, they spring from a fountain whose
source is within the temple of the soul, made inaccessible to all direct
external power, in the child and man alike. The mental structure called
education that is to be erected in this secluded place is a life work. lt will be
beautiful or ugly, lofty or insignificant, strong or weak, solely according to
the character and perseverance of the voluntary effort of the individual soul
that dwells therein. Neither love nor pity can directly raise one straw or
move a dust of the balance to aid. All that the teachers can do is to stand
Without and with wise words and pure example guide and encourage. The
Creator Himself encroaches not upon the sacred precincts. However much,
therefore of labor and skill may be demanded in the life of the teacher, all
may be reduced to two single objects or aims: -
First, to present to the pupil proper and adequate inducements, and
second, to present proper and sufficient guides to mental action. There can
scarcely be a more self-evident proposition to the human mind than that the
pupil should be so instructed that he will need less and less of these
exterior inducements and guards as he advances and become more and
more self-sustaining until at length throughout the work of God and man,
without a special teacher, the soul alone shall find sufficient guides, The
work of the teacher should gradually cease, but the building within should
go on forever."
