My dear Girls:
It is now the year 1958. Each one
of you is barely eighteen years of
age. According to the authorities
who have made a study of the in-
creasing longevity of each genera-
tion, each of you should have fifty,
sixty, or even more years of life
before you. You may see the years
2008-2018 come into being. What
are you going to do with these many
years, years which will bring you
into the Twenty-first Century? How
are you planning to live them? How
will you make them happy, fruitful
years? What will the world of the
Twenty-first Century be like, the
world which your generation will
do much to shape? Will it be a
world of Peace, of Love of onels
Fellow-Man, of Plenty and Freedom
for all? Or will it be a world of
War, of Hatreds, of Slavery and
We fervently hope that it will be a better world. It can be if, in the next
fifty years, you and all young people like you dedicate yourselves to this
challenging task. "But I am only one personf, you may say. ul-low can l do
anything to change the world?" You would be surprised to know how very
strong the influence of individuals can be if enough individuals are deter-
mined to see ideals become realities. Your influence as a thinker, as an
unselfish member of society, or as a considerate person will be felt. Every
kind word you utter and every noble deed you do will reach out to others.
What we do and what we say may be compared, in effect, to what happens
when we throw a stone into a river. We see the first strong impulses, and
radiating from it are countless, ever-widening circles. So it is with everything
we do. We generate countless, ever-widening influences daily. The Twentieth
Century will reflect these in toto. May your contributions be such that the
new century will see the dawn of Peace, Understanding and genuine Brotherly
Love among all Mankind.

My dear Girls:
M, A K st LKLL
In the opera HLohengrin " one of
the lovely arias is the farewell song,
wllhe Swan Song".
This message to you is my 'LSwan
Songn, and in it I wish I could
express adequately how privileged
I feel to have had seventeen years
of association with Julia Richman
High School--a school whose stand-
ards and ideals have remained high
during the forty-five years of its
existence, whose faculty has been
devoted and progressive, and whose
student body has come to respect, to
understand and to support the lofty
principles of the founders of the
school - Dr. Wolfson and Dr.
To be alive means constant
change and growth-physically,
mentally, spiritually and socially.
One may die in the last three areas
long before physical death occurs.
You are living in the most challenging and the most dangerous era that
the world has ever known. lVlan's conquest of the secrets of the universe is
only dimly understood by most of us. We do know that we have it in our
power to destroy all the nations of the earth and all the civilization devel-
oped slowly and with infinite pains during the past six thousand years.
Therefore, we have tried to develop and to harden the determination of each
one of you to inform yourself thoroughly, to interpret wisely, and to apply
with moral and social purpose the information and the knowledge that your
intellectual capacity has enabled you to acquire.
My heartfelt wish for each one of you is that you may help to bring about
the better world for which we yearn-a world in which our efforts are
directed not to destruction, but to construction, a world of peace of which it
may be said:
"Bliss was it that dawn to be alive
And to be young was very heaven."
Affectionately and sincerely,
Marion D. Jewell
