BOARD OF EDUCATION
Mr. Kenneth J. Mcllraith—President of Board of Education; Mr. Brainard Prescott—School
Attorney; Mr. J. Howard Smith; Mr. Peter Bos; Mr. A. Donald Bartoo—Principal of the
District; Mr. Joseph D. Kurtz—Vice President of Board of Education; Mr. George B. Field;
Mr. J. George Nattrass; Mr. Leon A. Piguet. Absent: Mr. Cecil Scott—Clerk of the Board.
The Board of Education extends to each of you, members of the Class of 1961,
heartiest congratulations on your graduation.
Some of you will now pursue higher education in college, technical, or business
schools; others of you will now begin your working careers; others may shortly be-
gin careers in homemaking. Regardless of which path you follow, it is sincerely
hoped that you will put into practice one over-riding lesson which all of us at
Iroquois have tried to teach—the pursuit of excellence. Each of you, whether you
are a college student or a truck driver, a store clerk or an engineer, a secretary
or a housewife, must set high standards for yourselves and then meet these high
standards. Only by so doing can we guarantee the survival of our nation as a great
and free nation.
Pledge yourself to do a better job wherever you are, be a better citizen, live a
better life. In brief, pursue excellence! In this spirit of challenge, we extend our
greetings to each of you.

THOMAS CLARENCE LIPPMAN
“Tom was the most cheerful boy I have
ever known,” remarked one of his classmates.
He was always willing to lend a helping hand in
any school activity or to a friend in need.
He was admired by all who knew him for his
sincerity and integrity. Being an accomplished
athlete he did his best in all activities.
We cannot express how we miss him nor can
we fully describe his congenial character and
warm personality. Tom will be remembered by
all who knew him.

PRINCIPAL of the DISTRICT
Congratulations for your success in school, and upon your yearbook project.
Your last year at Iroquois Central comes during a great history making era, when
leadership within our own nation changes, and when the events on the International
scene reveal a deployment of power pressures to influence opinion and ideologies.
It seems to me that one of the paramount issues for each of you is to maintain
your individualism in thought and in person. Although most of your school life has
been spent in a “togetherness environment, in which you became both a joiner and
an organization person, do not let this overshadow your individualism. Remember
the school reflects the culture of which it is a part. Sometimes it is easier to adhere
to a principle in the company of others, it is even easier to believe in it. For
the timid and the uncertain, shifting responsibility for moral decisions to an organ-
ization is obviously the path of the least resistance. The substitution of a social
conscience for the private conscience disposes of a number of troublesome moral
problems. However, when people get in the habit of depending too much on others
to solve their problems, they lose their capacity of applying thought and imagina-
tion to private analysis and solution. This leads to demoralization of the individual
as a private person. Individualism and freedom generate tremendous power. May
you always maintain yours.
A. Donald Bartoo
Principal of the District
