Four THE CENTENNIAL-1950 EDITORIALS 'A' if? if allay 'ML goffowg j0l'Yl0l'l'0l,U 2 olLaJ,, OUR class has an opportunity to go as far as our country has. Our country started under the leadership of England and remained there until it had a revolution. For several years after this it had a very uncertain standing, and then it started upward on a long hard road. It had its troubles, its wars, and its successes, but now it has become the leading nation of the world. Our class has the same opportunity. We have been under the leadership of our school, but now we are going to have our own revolu- tion. We are going to be in that uncertain position. We are going to start that long up- ward climb, but if we plan to go to the top, we will need help during our troubles. We will have to follow our country's pattern. "IN GOD WE TRUST" became its favorite motto, even on minted coins. If we adopt the same slogan, we will achieve, as it did, leadership in our world of tomorrow. Frank Whitney, Associate Editor -fx if aff we .yllllJl'0JtA 21710 FOR the hundredth time, rows of Middleboro boys and girls have marched solemnly to the platform, for the hundredth time, they have eagerly received their diplomas, and for the hundredth time, a group of students stand on the uncertain threshold to the future. Styles have changed and the jitterbug has replaced the Charleston, but the future-the future hasn't changed. It still lies before us promising a mul- titude of things both good and bad, and as always, it lies uncertain. True, we, the class of 1950, have more opportunities than the class of 1850, but we will have to struggle for our goals just as they did then. Gallup polls prove that more of us will be going to schools of higher learning than ever before, but this only follows hand in hand with the raised standard of living. It isn't any easier to get a job now than it was then, but our possibilities are un- limited. Our schoolwork is neither harder nor easier than it was a hundred years ago, but we do have a wider variety of subjects to choose from. This is the centennial of graduating classes from an organized school system in the town of Middleboro, yet it is nothing but a point on the road of life which no one will remember except those who are graduating. Sophie Sowyrda, Editor-in-Chief
