PRINCIPAL OF THE DISTRICT
Class of 1962:
Congratulations to each of you, upon your graduation from Iroquois Central
and for another successful “Iroquoian”. You leave our school at a most unusual
time in the history of our great nation. If a solution is found in the near future,
for the coexistence of nations, then the future unfolds to each of you unlimited op-
portunities for the good life” ahead, it is my fervent hope and prayer that such a
solution may be found.
With opportunity, however, goes grave responsibility. You are now entering
adulthood, and must be prepared to accept your share of the responsibility of be-
coming a part of our adult society. By right of franchise you will help to elect those
who will govern the society in which you live. By honest effort and application of
your talents, you will decide the economic status of your existence in this society.
By the example of your moral and spiritual lives, you will influence your children
and friends, to be divinely good or disgracefully evil.
If your decisions of the future are to keep this nation a free society, then you
must show courage, determination, sharpen your ability to think straight, and fight
to maintain your individuality in the face of mass response.
I have confidence in your ability to do these things, if you remain ever vigilant
and alert to hidden danger.
Best wishes and good luck to each of you upon your journey.
A. Donald Bartoo,
Principal of the District

To The 1962 Graduating Class—ICHS:
Last year the challenge was—“The pursuit of excellence”—Still is, with this
added observation. It’s a common experience as you grow to feel the pressure of
the moment become almost unbearable—thinking the myriad detail that you are
bound up with will never let up—saying to yourself, “I think I’ll quit or give
up,” or “If I could only go to sleep and wake up in ten years to find all my troubles
Try this: Stay awake, be realistic, and tell yourself this overwhelming truth em-
phatically, “Ten years from now, all my present seemingly unresolved problems
and troubles will have disappeared.”
By your continued pursuit, you will then have found the key to the happy, suc-
cessful and meaningful life.
Congratulations, you have successfully arrived at still another plateau—“Com-
mencing” your drive to the next.

President of the Board of Education

To The Class of 1962:
Congratulations on this momentous occasion—
your graduation from high school. You have
spent many years of your young lives working dil-
igently toward this long-awaited and eagerly
sought goal and in preparing yourselves in every
way possible for the beginning of your new lives
and careers after graduation.
May you always recall with pleasure and pride
your many, many days as a student at Iroquois.
I do sincerely hope that each one of you does
find deep and personal satisfaction and real and
lasting happiness in whatever you do now that
you are leaving Iroquois. It is also my warmest
wish that the future will bring you whatever you
need and want most and that all your individual
dreams and desires will be realized.
May goo'-1 ’uck, good health, and good fortune
be with you at all times.
Congratulations to the Class of 1962:
It is my hope as you leave Iroquois Central Senior
High School, with its rich educational heritage, that
(first) you will carry with you certain attributes of
scholarship, education and character which will prove
useful during the remainder of your lives and (second)
that you will enroll in life’s highest goal—“to realize the
best that is in you.”
The test of maturity is the ability to meet responsi-
bility in all walks of life. Your school has given each of
you innumerable opportunities to “grow up” and 1 am
confident that most of you have made the most of them.
Now, more than any time in our history, our nation
needs citizens of high ability and advanced training.
“The race which does not value trained intelligence is
doomed.” In addition, our nation needs men and
women of imagination, courage and high moral stand-
ards. May you ever be willing “to take a stand” for
what is right; to ask the fearless question and to dis-
agree; to search for truth; to have respect for those
with whom you differ. Remember—the great lesson of
America is that there can be diversity within unity, one
faith among many and individuality within the bounds
Good luck to all of you! I shall recall with much
pleasure and happiness the individual members and ac-
complishments of the Class of 1962.
