The immediate years ahead will be full of much
inner searching for you. You will come to know
what kind of person you are, what you plan to
be, and what direction your life is taking. No
matter what your abilities or limitations are,
once you face yourself squarely without making
excuses for idle behavior, you will be able to get
on with the work of aiming towards that which
is noblest in the human spirit.
Your education should have given you the
tools to think logically and to make mature de-
cisions. Some of you already have schemes for
"getting aheadi' and "being successful? Would
you be surprised to learn that happiness lies in
the simplest things: devotion to oneis family,
loyalty to one's job and community, and respect
for one's fellowmen? Neglect of any part of this
formula may mean the downfall of an otherwise
successful life. Exercise self-control. Learn to
give of yourself wherever and whenever you are
needed. Never mind about changing the world.
The only part of this universe you can be certain
of improving is yourself.

Ever since the opening of Overbrook High
School, the yearbook of the graduating class has
been called The Record, a title which l believe
to be the most appropriate one possible. Between
these covers the history of your careers in high
school has been recorded-with, we hope, the
high Fidelity now so popular.
As you "play backv this record in the years
to come, you will re-create in some measure the
activities you pursued in Overbrook, l hope that
it reminds you not only of pleasant moments and
good friends, but also of the years of work by
you and your teachers which prepared you for
your adult life. Your school has provided the
studio and the recording equipment, but each of
you has, in his or her own way, provided the
talent for the recording. May this record always
bring you pleasure and satisfaction, and may it
be a long-playing one.
