Dear members of the graduating class:
As young people you are blooming forth into young manhood and
womanhood. Your life is prospective to an expansive usefulness in a
world of many opportunities, needs. and responsibilities. You are grad-
uating in a time when political situations are quite uncertain, in a time
when religious beliefs and practices are lluctuating away from their
heretofore established moorings. There is certainly a great opportunity
with stability of character and with nobility ol' purpose to conquer
You are graduating from this institution with a background ol'
youth that can well serve as a foundation upon which a life of useful-
ness can be built. Your parents have followed you through the years
with keen interest and anticipation for a life in accordance with God's
will. The discipline of life while here in school will help to regulate
your attitude and conduct in later years. Christian teachers have given,
by precept and example, a background of inlluence that shall mean
i much to you in the years ahead.
You are an investment for which certain results can be expected. Parents have invested
time, money, and personal sacrifices. You have been in school these four years, much of which
time you could have been earning money instead of spending money for your schooling. Your
teachers, after many years of preparation, have given time for study and teaching with confident
prayers and personal interest. The church through conference has decided to have this school
for you. Its Board of Trustees have given freely of their time, energy, and interest that you might
have this privilege. It is now up to you to show that the investment has not been in vain.
There are some guiding principles to make your life a success. The Bible is the authority on
all matters of which it treats. The Holy Spirit and the VVord, by I-Iis obedience thereto. will
produce a conscience that will guide you in many circumstances. The continued counsel ol' your
parents will be valuable. The church is God's ordained agency in which and for which you
serveg its leaders will give you counsel in working out life's responsibilities. The conference and
your local ministry are God's ordained servants to help you in your Christian life and in the serv-
ice opportunities that will be yours in the years ahead. .Regard their counsel with respect, for
they are ordained for that responsibility and they are men of years and experience.
A few goals that should be thought of as you go forth from this institution should include
both life and service. According to the Scriptures an exemplary life is a strong witness ol' the truth

Class Advisers Message
Dear Seniors of the Class of 1948:
As I sit in my room writing this little message there lies before me
a book with the title, Proplietic Ymrs, 1947 to 1953. To tell you about
the message of the book would only lead to confusion, for the author
has not gone to the best sources for information. Much of the pessi-
mism and fear that he pictures can truly be read from the events of the
world today. But you have no cause for terror, nor have you need for
any special revelation to make you secure.
For your present needs I want to present to you another book
which also speaks about many terrible things. but in it are the only
sources of hope and rescue from the forces of this present troubled time.
The Bible, if relied upon, will show you the way of life without giving
rise to needless fears and false ideas. It presents a true history of man,
his origin, his failures, his redemption, and his future hope. It also
gives you a true picture of Cod, the Creator of the universe, ol eternity,
