Although the individual is strong, it is a sensitive, emotional thing which is easily influenced, especially during the first twenty years of its life. The individual has also a special inheritance upon which it must build its fate. On the foundation of these legacies, environment molds the character. When we contemplate the shocking confusion of human affairs which prevails in the world today and attempt to understand the situation, our minds are sure to be puzzled and uncertain. We have un- precedented conditions to deal with and novel adjustments to make. Scientific knowledge, un- known to our grandfathers, is ours to use. The possibilities are unlimited, but first we must create an open attitude of mind to cope with conditions never before faced. We must learn to see the world clearly for it is in the world that we make our home. At the same time, however, we need expert guid- ance so that we may learn to think along the right paths. This is why our school environment is of such importance. At Mount Vernon we are pre- pared to meet the life which lies ahead ofeach of us. Through the study of literature, history, science, language and mathematics, we are filled with work- ing knowledge. Through art and music, we learn to as ii 1 -xr i K xi K ,MA I .Q tk vf,1fO---- ' A4-"fren " appreciate beauty. Through our daily religious services and through the study of the Bible we are trained in ethical behavior. Through our associa- tions with our teachers and friends, we learn to understand better the people around us. In one sense our years at Mount Vernon lead us to the gateway oflife. As we enter the gates of the school, we enter a stage of preparation. Four years are spent within those gates-four years in which we grow and mature. We are led to understand responsibility, we recognize our talents. Daily we learn and grow. At times there are heartbreaks and disappointments, often we feel discouraged, yet even discouragement is an invaluable part of our growing. After four years within the gates of Mount Vernon, we leave the friends we have made, but we carry with us the knowledge of a wide world. We leave those gates prepared to face the future. From Mount Vernon we gain an education-an education which is a preparation for the world. For four years we have been led through various gateways-knowledge, understanding, appreciation of the beautiful, estimation of true value. Now we come to the final gate, the largest gate, the gateway of life. From this point we are able to walk forth into both the sunshine and shadows with confidence.
