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. Your principal, J. E. SEGEAR ASSISTANT PRINCIPAUS MESSAGE 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, just what you want to do in life yoiu' task now and that you will ability. ' Because we have a war on our you should stop planning for your have made up your minds andlthat you begin to do do xt to the best of your hands, does not mean that future tisk lt gives ou 1 greater responsibilty to help put into effect those thing! that 4 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 1 e. 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 not succeed. 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, ORA J. NEWMAN
