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
