who just desire general knowledge and another for those who wish to learn
some trade or profession with which to conquer the world. Great numbers of
students are now enrolling in this latter course since it is the one which en-
ables a student to go out and earn his living immediately.
The High School course is also of great value socially. The course
fosters constant contact with other people. This cannot help but broaden a
person for association with another person forces one to consider other people.
Usually many social affairs are held under the auspices of the High School.
This of course helps one socially.
Taking the term society in another way the course helps one to be a better
member of society. The sound knowledge of history and the social sciences
aids one in seeing the fallacy in socialistic arguments. The spirit of American-
ism and Democracy is bound to be inculcated by a good High School training.
So it is evident that a High School training is of value in many respects.
Not only is the individual student bettered but the country at large is the
gainer by a good citizen. The High School is therefore one of the greatest
factors in improving the nation.

Value of a High School Education
A lligh School course is one of the most valuable assets with wlu h to
enter the world. No other thing can take the place of a lligh School training,
one might almost say that such :1 training is a prerequisite to success. 'l'he

'llhe lligh School course has broadened so materially that now physical
training is required of every student. 'llhis course tends to produce a well
developed, normal body. 'l'he physical training is such that it fits the need
of the individual student. Courses in Hygiene, Biology, etc., are alsoofgreat
value for they teach the function and the care of each part of the body.
Primarily of course. the lligh School course is planned with the view of
developing one intellectually. By bringing one into contact with great minds
tends to broaden our view point. The great variety of subjects offered en-
ables every student to follow his particular bent while at the same time open-
ing new fields to him.
'l he ability to think, to see things through to a conclusion is also developed
during the course. 'illhe student is given every opportunity to aid him in
thinking deeply, and of getting to the root of a matter. Particularly to a
mathematically inclined student' the newer courses are of great help. 'l'he
history course has changed very materially within the last few years. Now

The lligh School course gives a vast amount of general and specific know-
ledge on a great variety of subjects. Still a superficial knowledge of facts,

Park Ridge High School, now we must leave thee,
Though our hearts are filled with woe,
To enter the strenuous Battle of Life,
VVhich might bring joy or sorrow.
Far have we sailed in thy good ship,
And long has been our fight,
And welll ne'er forget the cruise we've made.
NVith the Maroon and the White.
Though we'll look back at what we've done,
And utter a sigh of relief,
Though We'll be free from Assemblies and tests,
VVe part from thee in grief.
Though many have been the struggles,
And many the days of strife,
Yet, Park Ridge High School you've prepared us
To dare the battle of life.

To strive in fields anew,

The debt we owe to you.
Now is the time to say "FareWell.',
Farewell to thee, Park Ridge High,
VVe wish you all that's good in the world,
XYe bid you a heartfelt good-bye.
