4 4. I,
I consxder that Modern European
I-hstory has helped me more than any
thmg else m my four happy years ln
I have found that all my studxes
have left helpful bats of knowledge and
thmgs I should always regret lf I had
never had an opportunxty to acqulre
Acquxrlng knowledge by reference
and a real studymg abxllty are worth
whale ZCQUISIIIODS Instmct and nature
molds real students but pluck and
hard work makes an artlst.
I am leavxng Murdock wxth the hope
of learnmg more There have been
times when things dld not run smooth
But hlgh school has taught me to quell
such an absurd Impulse and to keep on
plugging and fightxng
Shorthand and typewrxtmg have
been valuable assets to me Slnce I
have taken shorthand I have developed
a keener sense of touch and an appre
clatlon of lectures concerts and the
llke Beheve It or not' It also helps to
make easxer my other subjects
Educatxon ln not sxmply the assem
blmg of many facts It IB bexng able no
thmk clearly and reason thmgs out I
have learned that one can get as much
or as lxttle out of hxgh school as he
wants Hlgh school has glven me real
enjoyment and expenence whxch I
shall always treasure Paul Jones
The most valuable accomplxshment
m my hlgh school years was the pass
mg of f r e s h m a n arlthmetxc This
meant that I could contlnue ln the
commercial cou r s e and acqulre the
knowledge of book keepmg whlch I
hope to use to some profit
The mostvaluable studles to medur
mg my four years ln hlgh school were
shorthand English tvpewntmg and
bookkeepmg If I never become a
bookkeeper or a stenographer I stlll
have that much knowledge and expe
rlence m case of emergency and Ill
always know how to use good Engllsh
Thls ll a hard questlon to answer
falrly I conslder the general influence
of studles and the soclal llfe of the
class room a great asset to any person s
All my high school connections have
been extremely valuable Ido not place
one above another but rather combme
them to form a complete and worth
w h 1 l e high school educatxon The
friends knowledge a n d experxence
gamed m my four years at high school
all go to make up a genume slmllarxty
to the travels on hfe s hlghway
Murdock has developed the man ln
me It has brought out my talents and
ablhtnes Now I am prepared to enter
college wlth a better appreclatlon and
understandmg of the work requxred
of me especlally that ln whlch I am
mterested and best htted for busmess

C ass Day Oratlon
By Robert Kidder
Classmates and friends one of the
saddest duties which a senior has to
perform has fallen to me that of
bestowlng upon our successors the
mantle which has been worn so gra
clously and so worthlly by us the class
of 1934 during these four years at
And now dear Juniors I tremble
with fear for the welfare and safety of
this symbol of senior dignity and up
rightness As I look lnto your blanl
staring faces only too plainly do I see
that our last few x ords ot adxice to
resentment But we have e pec el
this knowing your record ofthe last
three years we have prepared for it
Still lt1S my painful duty to point outto
you your many faults and defe ts the
love for the dear old mantle urges me
Of course you realize that your class
has alvs ays been very feeble in mtelll
gence almost illiterate Imight sax
and knowing thls perhaps you can
understand a little of our anxiety about
the honor which IS to be conferred
upon you We know that it would be
an injustice to you for u to expect
you to accomplish any thine note wr rthv
or brilliant Indeed the only a col
phshment in your whole high school
career that you will be able to look
back upon in pleasure will be the
recollection of the day when you ff o
will turn this dear old mantle over to
your successors a class much more
worthy of it than yourselves
And now Juniors listen tothe e f w
words of advlce We know that you
WIII have to assoclate with them
coming fre s h me n of next year bp
cause the other classes are so far above
your highest I Q that you won t be
able to understand th drift of their
simplest conversations Why these ln
coming freshmen are so far abo ve
have to use the utmost caution not to
be shown up in front of the n
Now to take up a few of your many
faults One out standmg error is vour
lack of seriousness your extremely
childish actions Of course in your
condition nothing more can be expected
of you However all visitors to this
school are warned of thls your sad
affliction otherwise they would think
the assembly hall xy as a meetlng place
for a trou p of persons mentally
Next you should try to cultivate
modest, Do not leta few words of
flattery spoken in Jest turn your heads
or cause you to become too conceited
with your importance But do not hope
to repeat the successes ot the class mf

1934 for m endeavorlng to emulate
th1s class you w1ll receive much
When you are about to speak thmk
twlce In thls you w1ll avold many of
those chlldlsh remarks whlch have so
embarrassed us your upper classmen
ln the past Time prevents me from
mentlomng further faults but lf 1 had
a thousand volces and as many
mouths a VOICG of the strongest steel
I could not hope to mentlon all your
faults You can see for yourselves how
hopeless your case IS All I can ask of
you IS that your actlons as senlors be
of such a character that perhaps your
past w1ll be forgotten Th1s IS very lm
probable but mxracles have happened
As to our own class I know of noth
1ng l1ke It w1th whlch to compare
for grandeur modesty keeps me from
glvlng lt fittmg pralse but we w1ll be
sufhclently rewarded ln the future
honor we deserve
We must now step out and let the
pretenders take our places we shall
not be wlth you next year to lend you
a helping hand and to cheer you along
by our presence but we hope as our
successor you will do your very best
One more word ln regard to thls mantle
Remember that spotless we recelved
It and now wlthout a blot to mar lts
reputatlon we ln turn pass It over to

WHY I WANT To BE A FARMER
Next fall I hope to enter New
Hampshire College o f Agrlculture
wlth the ldea of preparing myself to
become a tralned efficient farmer
Just why do Ichoose this occupation
for my llfe work especlally now when
newspapers magazmes lecture plat
forms and radlo are all bemoanlng the
farmer s fate?
Perhaps you w1ll say Why your
father IS a successful farmer lt IS nat
tural that you should want to follow
ln h1s footsteps
It ll true that I have found pleasure
ID walklng over the fields with my
father admlrmg the rows of sprout
mg gram estimating the yleld of the
harvest making plans for another
year And much of this dear compan
lonshnp IS doubtless somewhat respon
Slble for my love of the land
It IS not however because of adl
rect mherltance that I am choosmg
farmmg as an occupatlon but It is
rather my faith ln It as a busmess for
I believe that ln spite of the cry of
surplus crops the revolt of Mlddle
Western farmers and the general de
pr sslon ln agriculture that farming
is a busmess that under normal condx
tions can count upon valuable returns
There have been as lmportant advances
ln the agrlcultural field as there have
been ID mmlng or ln manufacturlng
and the farmer who has been ready to
profit by new Inventions and new les
sons from sclence wlll earn the reward
of a successful busmess man HIS
combination of experience and scxen
tlf'lC tralnmg wlll help hlm to get the
highest posslble return for the capltal
and labor employed
There are some advantages which
farming presents over other l1nes of
work which partlcularly appeal to me
An outstanding advantage IS that It
IS an outdoor aCt1Ve llfe freelng one
overtake those who pass their worklng
hours lndoors There are seasons when
practlcally all the time IS spent ln the
fields or in the woods surrounded by
the envlronment of God s fresh alr
What more moral and healthy envlron
ment could one ask for? Where could
one get finer lnsplratlon than from the
marvelous morning sunshlne th e
snow covered evergreens the red bars
of sunset gleamlng through the gnarled
branches of an old orchard from
peaceful twnllghts and early moon
To me a second advantage IS the
independence of the farmer He IS his
own master and may work accordlng
to hls own rules and plans He IS not
tled down to dlrectlons from others
but can always exerclse his own mdl
vlduallty Every farm IS an experl
mental Bt3.t10H and every farmer IS a
dxrector thereof thus an opportunity

IS affo ded for the best mlnds to exer
CISG themselves to thelr full capaclty
There IS also a great Varlety ln the
work on a farm for ln orderto produce
and market hls crops profitably the
successful general farmer must be
amechanlc salesman planter breeder
manager economlst capltallst anot
unlnterestlng group of essentlals fur
nlshlng no mototony
And ln addltlon to these advantages
over other llnes of work there IS the
challenge that comes from a growlng
professlon There seems no llmlt to the
lmpFOV6m6htS that are ahead and to
the experlmentlng ln whlch every
farmer may have hls share Some one
has spoken of farnllng as the chal
lenge of the dlfiicult There seems to
me a pleasureln havlngwork that finds
much to overcome and to conquer to
tackle problems that are stlmulatlng
to the lntellect
ten recently by Henry Ford for the
NewYorkT1mes ln whlch he descrlbes
the work belng carrled on at hls ex
perlmental farnl at Dearborn The
blg mterests of the future wlll lnclude
farmlng as well as manufacturlng IH
thelr operatlons sald Mr Ford He
goes on to say We mostly eat farm
products now suppose we learn to
rlde ln them bulld wlth them pave
Instead of exhaustlng the mlnerals
whlch required ages to produce and
uslng up the forests whlch took gen
eratlons to mature It may be posslble
to produce an annual supply of the raw
material whlch lndustry needs You
can see how thls would change the
status of the farm from merely being
the table supplier the farm would
become the lndustrlal supplier of the
If thls become true how much op
portunlty must there be for the man
who IS able and wllllng to use hls mmd
It has been Sald that farmers are al
ways grumbllng always talklng hard
tlmes always findlng fault about the
weather We do grumble and talk hard
tlmes but so do all capltallsts We do
find fault with the weather but no
more than do others whose occupatlon
the weather dlrectly affects When
success depends upon a demand for
produce and new dlscoverles are con
stalltly affectlng the market for cer
taln C0mmOdltl8S what wonder that
the farmer often worrles over uncer
talntles of hlS buslness The profits
fluctuate truly and Just now thev are
at the lowest ebb But these condltlons
cannot be permanent
The farmer worrles yes but rare
ly alone It seems to me that ln no
other occupatlon can the famlly be so
closely assoclated as IS the famlly of
dren work together and enloy thelr
recreatlons together Frequently we
hear of a business man who falls to the
astonishment of' hlS famlly Thls sel
dom happens ID a famlly on a farm for
even the chlldren have heard dlscussed
each dlsappolntment and each setback
have heard all about father s dlscour
agements and mother s dlssatlsfactlon
In fact, thls may be the very reason
why many of the chlldren do not care
to follow ln thelr father s footsteps
But ln Splte of the worrles ln splte
of the small lncome ln splte of the
sacrlficlng of a few comforts whlch IS
almost lnevltable I stlll feel that there
IS no occupatlon more lntereltlng than
farmlng more lnsplrlng more health
ful where one may know nature at
first hand and may help to solve per
haps the most vltal problem of the
natlon that of lts food supply

OUR CHANGES IN THE NEW ERA
By Robert Curtln
There are fifty nlne of us graduating
tonlght from high school courses of
study a group of bovs and glrls and a
hlgh school ty plcal of many such groups
and mallv such schools all over the
Unlted States And doubtles the
same problem IS now interesting the
mlnds of hundreds of other graduates
that IQ lnterestlng us What are we
going to do after graduation?
Of course some l'l be fortunate
enough to attend collc e or a UUIX er
slty ln thls vay talslng care of the
next four years ani there 19 the
majorlty who ls soon as gr lduated
must begin the battle with life s forces
But whether scheduled for furthel
edllcatlon or not we are all asklni!
of opportunlty It may be WISE-I K0 de
ternllne the outstanding characterl tlcs
and trends of thls rapidly changing
world ln wl lch we must make our wav
of thls New Era into whlch we are
We are told and we lead that thls IS
the day of the machlne that ln order to
cut the cost of production more and
better machlnes those vlhlch Wlll
necessitate greater electrical DOWGI
wlll be demanded bv bl1Q1U1.SS and
lndustry Naturally tl e lnstallment of
these efiiclent workers of steam and
ITOH wlll decrease the demand for
man's labor As a result the ordlnary
worklng man wlll ealn less and less un
tll finally only the most competent and
the best qualified men and women vslll
get the Job
This trend toward the supplantlng
of man power by the machlne closes
many fields of endeavor which mlght
lnterest us to the polnt of maklng
them our llfe work our career But
on the other hand thls machlne age
must open up new opportunltles for
the New Era IS golng to demand new
ty pes of workers new technlques
new products And too there are
thlngs ln the personal servlce field
WhlCh machlnes can never do There
wlll always be some opportunltles ln
ln thls field as long as there are people
whose n eds cannot be satlsfied save
bv the personal efforts of others
Let us take a few mlnutes to exam
me some of the professlons that seem
today to be definitely over crowded
for we do not want to prepare ourselves
for 1 career that doesn t 8Xl9t We
mu tbf th ludges of our own opportu
nltle 'lnd our best preparatlon IS to
s udy the oplnlons of leaders ln the
plofcsslons md the lI1dllStl'l6S as to the
lmpoltant tl nds ln thelr particular
the low standards ln some schools
or colleges are ox ercrowded Others
not ove crovl ded suffer from a lack
of llTllf0l'H1 dlStI'lblltl0I'1 throughout
the country Of all the lmportant and
outstanding professlons that of teach
lng offers the least opportunlty for
obtalnlnga posltlon W lack first
r te teachers l lS s ld nd are
amped wlth those oflnferlor grade
Moreow el x e are toli that unless one
feels that he IS a born teacher and
has the money to put into the proper
edueatlon he had better leave thlS
Nelther does the law present a
bright outlook Ihcre 'ne too many
low grade lawyers for the general
good of the people although able en

Flgld tramlng lf one is to hope for a
future 1n this field Here agaln as ln
law the small town offers the best

One of the most serlously overcrowd

One s only chance here IS to comblne
Journalism wlth technical vork Even
with thls qualification there IS promise
for only a few able men and women
In the larger c1t1es the trend in med
1c1ne seems to be away from SD9ClallZa
tion Medlcal schools are now enforcing
hlgher entrance requirements and
standards The man who is a really
that great asset to a phy slclan s sue

hls work to be more profitable ID the
smaller towns for there are st1ll some
rural dlstrlcts without competent doc

Opportunltles for the librarian vslll
be llmlted so long as publlc funds for
llbrary work remam reduced Hou ex cr
if there comes under these changing
condxtlons a demand for an lncrease ln
adult education the lxbraz 1es must play
an lmportant part
Although the call for soclal workers
seems to be mcreasmg adrnmlstratlve
ability and long experience IS neces
sary for anv success in thls l1ne
These prophets of the future tell us
that engmeers in order to be sucessful
must be skilled not only in engineering
proper but also in many other lines of
allled work the engmeer must be a
man of many quahficatlons and ab1l1
tres small chance for the man who
IS hmxted to but one skill
As we have revxewed the pOSSlbll
ltlGS for success in these lines of work
the prospect seems any thmg but brlght
for a graduate of today And yet the
prophets of the I ture are blddmg us
look up for they say No professlon
IS crowded at the top They also tell
us that tnis New Era IS brlllglflg ln
ne v IHVGULIOIIS new technlques and
new products WhlCh are golng to
demand new types of workers
Mass productlon and the Improve

and SQFVICCS are two fields which well
afford ome promlses of fine opportunl
t1es1n the New Era for superlor artlsts
stvllsts and chemists But here again
success is bolled down to the survival
of the fittest We have ln the last
twenty years seen mass productlon
come 1nto ltS own but as yet lt has
problems the mass production of
homes and that of air conditioning
equipment Bllllons of dollars Wlll be
spent durlng the next few years on
new housing The old style home IS
going to give way to a new style in

lndustry will create '1 demand for

who are not only speclallsts lh two
phases of the lndustry but who also
are well informed about the lndustry
as a whole
W1th1n the next few years they tell
us alr condltlonlng lndustry will sur

excellent career is offered anyone who
lS qualified ID this field
There's some encouragement for
those of us who like farming For ln
order to keep up these farms which
have fallen into the hands of banks
and insurance companies through de
fault on mortgages and loans there
will be a call from these receivers for
trained falm managers Recent farm
disasters too show that not only must
the suceessful farmer of the future
be experienced ln the vlork of the
farm but he must have a good busl
Healthy stock on farms lS meaning
more and more good V6t6I'lll3I'16S It lS
hard to believe but statistics say that
this calling IS by nomeans overcrowded
In fact experts report that unless more
young men become interested ln this
humane profession there will soon be
a shortage of veterlnarles
Some of the arts stlll afford opportu
nltles the art of window dlsplavlng
of edltln g publications which are devot

chain stores Though the 'ur transport
lndustry is set back hard temporarily

nlcallv trained personnel
These are but a fe v of the posslbll
ltleS ln w hlch we ma5 use our lndlvldual
talents or bents And as we hastlly
survey our chances ln this New Era
we have to realize that there IS no room
ln this competitive world fol the lazy
and the indifferent We want to grovl

not successful from the standpoint of
lslatlon ln regard to

meeting the challenglng problems of
this day through worth whlle construe

result of using our talents to the wisest
and fullest extent
As underclassmen we have always
looked forward to the time we should
be graduated Each year all thru
commencement week ave have enter
talned vlslons of our own graduation
and wished It wasn t so far ln the
future But now that lt has come we

our hlgh school days behlnd us As we
come face to face wlth the realities of

the happiest and most memorable of
