EDGAR M. CRAWFORD
The closing days of High School Life contains much joy, mixed, however, with
some sadness. The twelve years of close associations are about over and the associates
of those years will soon be scattered, and will probably never assemble again as a class.
It is said that a person never feels so wise as when he graduates from High
School. It is well to enjoy that feeling while you can for it will soon dawn upon you
that you have taken only the first step in the journey of Life, and that step is to
prepare you for the real struggle that will last while you remain in this world, for
Life is a constant struggle, no matter how successful it may be.
There will never be a day without conflict, toil, and struggle but there may come
tro you a day when there will be peace in your heart and the knowledge that the
world is richer as a result of the life you have liived.
What the world wants and needs is more men and women with intellectual clarity
and steadiness of thoughtg the power to bring our chaotic mental world into a closer
unity. There is no better way for you to help accomplish this ideal than by mapping
some honorable course in life and holding yourself steadily to this course until you
have triumphantly finished the fight.
Use wisely the dawn of manhood and womanhood, and thereby make smoother the
road to final success. Disappointments are as necessary in the development of life as
are the shadows in the perfect paintings of the great artists. Have a lofty ideal for
your aspirations and then endeavor to live up to it. The great law of compensation
still holds true as it has through the ages, "As a man soweuh, so shall he reap." Put
into life lofty principles and you will extract from life a pleasurable and profitable

Principal of Ohio City-Liberty High School

C. L. SHAFFER
Mr. ShaHer became the local superintendent at the beginning of the school term,
1903-4 and remained so for twelve years. At this time he was made the district
superintendent along with his position as our local superintendent. After five years
of this double burden Mr. Shaffer dropped the position as district superintendent
but still remained the head of the Ohio City School. He was directly connected with
the school for twenty continuous years.
When Mr. Shaffer became superintendent in Ohio City there were only two years
of high school work available. In the school year, 1903-4 there were only elight in
the high school with only two graduates. When Mr. Shaffer left Ohio City in 1924
there were one hundred and twenty-four students enrolled in high school and a four
year course available.
Until 1903-4 there was no Latin, chemistry, French or biology taught, these be-
ing added under Mr. ShaHer's leadership. In 1933 he was made County Superin-
tendent of Van We-rt County.
We wish to express our deep appreciation to Mr. Shaffer for all the splendid
things he has done for our school. We also appreciate greatly his interest in Ohio
City-Liberty and we always look forward to his pleasant, helpful visits with us.
