To The Members of The Class of l949
You are facing a future of uncertainty, one in which anything can
happen. You are in a new era of human progress which is filled with
opportunities, yet honeycombed with pitfalls. There are jobs for all who
want to work. There is a greater demand for the products of American
industry than there has ever been before. There are greater opportunities
for new enterprise and new careers than ever existed before.
From the Hood of information being given out by the various sources,
it will be your task to make your own evaluation of what is important
and to decide between the good and the bad. You are graduating into a
world of significant events and amid rapidly developing times.
You are leaving high school soon, but education is a process that
never ends. You must continue to grow mentally, to reach out for new
ideas and new information, to be aware of change and the reasons for it,
to be tolerant of the differences in people, to be kind and considerate and
unselfish, to accept and assume responsibility in the community. It will
not be possible for you to know all the right solutions to the many prob-
lems with which you will be faced. The important thing is to try to find
the right solutions. The degree to which you are successful in doing
this will determine your success in the life which you now face.
