The completion ot your high school work is, in truth, the
realization of one of the very important m.le-stones of your
lives. Two important facts stand outg one being that your
present success is a reality because of your good character and
the wise use you have made of your opportunities. The
other fact is that you stand at one of the many crossroads of
life and important decisions must now be made by you, deci-
sions that will dciennine the entire course of your lives.
The many members of your graduating class will surely have
varied interests and desires. Some will attend institutions of
higher learning, some will obtain employment, some will enter
the service of our beloved country, some will marry and be-
come homemakers. As you become aware of and then begin
to follow these fine inclinations, we pray that you will ever
keep, as a significant part of you, the spirit of this institution.
We want you to remember that Maggie L. Walker Hi has
been concerned, not alone with imparting facts of science,
history, mathematics, the vocations and other areas of knowl-
edge. Equally sincere-and we hope equally successful-has
been our effort to have you develop those fine attitudes, habits
and appreciations which all good citizens must have.
Ten, twenty, thirty or more years from now when you may
be glancing through your Year Book and perchance re-read
these lines, let it bc that you may know you are living a life
full of joy and service because of having accepted the great
and true principles of Christian living which Vllalker Hi helped
unfold for you. , .
Your alma mater is exceedingly proud that you now join
the ranks of those who represent us. You have our very best
wishes and the assurance of our faith in your desire and
ability to live honorably and nobly.

n The 1945 graduates of America's High Schools are very
important peopl ein this war torn world for they are the
leaders of tomorrow's world. They have been left to carry on
by those who are in camp receiving training of on foreign
soil fighting to preserve democracy.
These are crucial times and we trust that you, the 1945
graduates of WValker High School,

greater responsibilty to help put into effect those thing! that
the former graduates of our school had planned before march-
ing away to war. Those things need to be done for those who
are now fighting and dying for us. Now, as never before we
need young people of good character, with strong, resolute
wills and a true sense of values.
Nothing reveals character like the company we keep. Ever
since the organization of this school, one of the major ob-
jectives has been the development of character for each of
its students. The ideal citizen is n person of character. Char-
acter is that which causes life lo be dominated by principle
rather than by mere impulse or circumstance. The ideal citi-
zen appreciates truth, has a keen sense of justice, recognizes
his obligations, respects t.he rights of others, is cooperative,
and has respect for industry and thrift,
The development of character has always been a pre-
eminent requisite for all education. It has been the aim of
the Maggie L. Walker High School to have its students under-
stand that there is nothing more important than the develop-
ment of a strong character in the preparation for a. successful
Just as we have patterns for making dresses and other
garments, recipes for cooking, and directions for following the
various trades taught in our school, so we must have pattems
for behavior. These patterns must be well made and must
become a part of you so that you can select them when they
are needed in every day life. These is a "Behavior Pattem"
for every thing we do. We have tried to have you study
and learn these behavior pattems and we trust that as you
leave our school for broader fields of endeavor that you will
always think before acting and select the right pattern for
the occasion. .
It is just as important for you to go out in life equipped
with proper behavior of Mathematics, of English, of Science
and efficiency in your selected vocation. However fine vnu
may be in these subjects, if your personality is not pleasing,
if you do not make right choices in behavior, if-you are not
firm in your ideals as to the codes or laws of life, you can
These codes of life are such personal traits as honesty, fair
nlay, good sportsmanship, self-control, a sense of responsi-
bility, and independence. We trust that you will always act
in such ri way that you will grow into worthwhile men and
women and that your names will always refiect credit upon
your Alma Mater.
Your assistant principal,
