PRINCIPAL We live in time of change—times of fearfulness, times of opportunity, and times of enthusiasm. If you believe that these are times of fearfulness only, then you are gullible enough to think there are natural powers working against you. Believe instead that life is not fighting you; that those powers which are working so well for everyone else can also work for you. If you believe that these are times of opportunity, then you are wise enough to know that life offers you a multitude of opportunities; opportunities which multiply as they are seized but decay when neglected. Believe in the existence of limitless opportunities; and, so long as you keep an open mind, there will always be a frontier. If you believe that these are times of enthusiasm, then you have the understanding to recognize that fires cannot be kindled with dead embers and that enthusiasm cannot be embodied by spiritless men. Believe that the worst bankrupt in the world is the fellow who has lost his enthusiasm and possessing it not he is without new ambition, void of new efforts, lacking in new aspirations, and further encumbered by his lack of new vision. On this happy occasion of your commencement I leave you with this one thought: There are no hopeless situations, only hopeless men who, like an ostrich with its head in the sand, are as blind to opportunity as to disaster; for they lack the enthusiasm which lubricates the mind and marks the difference between leaders and laggards. Congratulations and Godspeed. S omu

SUPERINTENDENT TO THE CLASS OF 1966: The four years of high school are many things to many people. However, the one thing which they are to all people is an opportunity. An opportunity, as an opportunity, is never a settled question. It only opens itself to a whole realm of possibilities. The efforts of your high school, then, have been directed toward making these four years a successful confrontation of the challenges to which you have been exposed. We hope that, with your experiences, we have caused you to concentrate on nourishing every aspect of emerging adulthood. We hope that we have aided in developing your intellect so that you may attain not only proficiency in a narrow field of human en¬ deavor but also in the broad field of living life well. We hope that we have provided for you not mere instruction but true education—a literal " leading out”—so that you will be compelled to lead yourselves out from mere wise thinking to the more noble task of wise living. As you leave, we expect that you will become the kind of persons who will strive to make manhood the very highest of professions. We wish for each of you success and contentment in attaining your goals. 8

GUIDANCE COUNSELOR In the years to come vital issues are forming in which you and your entire future will be involved. These are the issues of freedom. Taken together they add up to your right to live, to work, and to seek happiness in the way we have always known, free of autocratic domination, free of war, or poverty and ignorance, and free of any re¬ strictions imposed on us by color, race, or religion. With the enlightenment and awareness achieved as a result of World War II by the people in Latin America, in Africa, and in the Middle and Far East, they became deter¬ mined to alleviate their poverty, their ignorance, and their hunger. These backward societies all over the world are emerging. In the only way they know, through violence, if necessary, they are demanding equal social and economic advantages with the rest of the world. These international issues, coupled with the great social upheavals in our own country, are testimony to the changing world you will enter. You will be part of them. You will be challenged by them and, depending on your thoughts and decisions, your actions, and your conscience, you will help to mould your country and the world as you think it should be, in freedom. The best and only way for each of you to accomplish this goal is through participation in community and public life. Each of us has certain abilities to contribute. The degree to which we make this contribution determines the quality of government we have, either, national or in the community. Our government, as Lincoln said, is " by and of the peo¬ ple,” no more, no less. Sponsored by EDGARTOWN POLICE BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION Edgartown 10
