We are inclined to drea m and to wish for these things without realizing that they are the result of slow and steady efforts over a long per- iod of time. This is well expressed by Oliver Wen- dell Holmes as follows: "l find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are movingg to reach the port of he aven we must sail, sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor." i 1 sift X fifsffx ' X I kg- ,arflfl A, A A Message From the Principal I like to th in k of life as a pathway over which all people must travel as long as they live. Some- times it is rough and steep and the briars hang over it and scra tch us as we pass along. You, who are graduating, will be helped a gr ea t deal if you will remember that your pathway is always passable. T. E. Stough Principal ? I 1 ,ff ,, ..
