T H E O RIO L E Page Thirty-three To enable us to understand fully the importance of ambition we must also discuss the evils that may befall one by the lack of ambition-the lack of a desire to achieve that which is great and noble and which in many cases leads to crime and takes a person from civilization and shuts him up in a prison cell, dingy and unhealthy. Ambition is like a tree, which when but a tiny seed it sprouts and takes root and bursts from the soil and is drawn upward and outward by sun and rain until it is a strong tree stretching out its arms to a candid world. Am- bition is but a tiny spark igniting the soul, which when bursting forth in dame lights the World with the radiance of greatness and stability. Jesse Smith, 134. Grd If I could paint pictures lily pictures would be Glimpses of beauties That few stop to see. Some pictures would be of Rocks, hills and trees, Some of rare flowers, Streams, birds and bees. One scene would be of A valley below As seeu from the bill crest As onward we go. Purple ruouutains at sunset, Red clouds of the dawn, Sweet little buttercups- A dew sprinkled lawn. Oh, I would paint pictures So beautiful to see, I f I could portray God's great love for me. Hazel Davis, '33.

Page Thirty-two THE ORIOLE gil-'VLZv'ifi01fL MBITION, the desire for superiority, power or attainment, which nestles in the mind of a meek child and urges him to at- tain that which is great. There is no doubt that there is in every child's mind some ambition, some desire to become as great as, or even greater, than some man or woman who has reached the height of success in some varied field. Ambition does not stop at childhood, but broadens out during school life and not only determines the success of education but brings to the mind of every individual a mental picture of his or her life's work. A man's life leads to and radiates around his ambition. If one's ambition is to make brick laying his life's work, it is doubtless true that a brick layer he will some day be. If one's ambition is to become a lawyer, it is in this field he will reach success. Ambition is that which makes men of children. Men-yes, men. Not only a physically strong individual, able to reach down and muscle a heavy weight, but a man strong of characteraa man who sees in the distant shadows a golden goal and is on the upward climb reaching on and on to attain that height of success created by ambition. The vapor of ambition is not diffused only from the costly mansion but from the peasant hut as well. Have not some of the really great men in the history of our country arisen from log cabins? For instance take the com- mon rail splitter, no more than a ragged, barefooted lad. But in this boy's veins lurked an ambition to rise from a common lad to a great man in the service of his country. It led him to work hard and to strive for an educa- tion, reading by Hrelight and writing with charcoal and shovel. This am- bition carried him, step by step, until he reached the greatest honor a man can attain, which is that of being President of the United States. He did not cast ambition aside there and bear his burden alone, but preserved it to urge him on successfully through one of the greatest eras in our history-the Civil War. Does this not prove ambition to be essential to success? With- out this desire you can do nothing. It is true that every one cannot be President, but one can ever struggle to a greater goal than one has yet reach- ed. Ambition is essential to success in any held one may choose. It is ambition that takes a helpless child and builds him into a strong and power- ful athlete. It keeps him on the field practicing from day to day in order that he may reach his goal.

Page Thirty-four T H E O R I Q L E fL'L'74,JG-y L O'lf'7fL'1l1fLg H! HOXV PLEASANT it is to have the sun steal in under my lowered shade and persist in playing hide and seek on my face until I have no choice but to open my eyes. Then slowly I realize it is Sunday morning, for the sun has but this one chance to awaken me through the whole week. Nothing seems to be so noisy, bustling and boisterous this morning, as there is no work to hasten to, no school to bother about, and even the birds seem to have stolen a nap for there is only one lonely little snow-bird sighing a pre- lude in my leafless vine covered window. It is good to think of the past week during this space of sacred silence, in terms of success and failure, resolving to profit by making my failures count among my successes in the oncoming Week which God will give me to fashion with my crude tools. Then the wind sprightly whisks through my open window and rustles the curtains carrying on its wings the call to morning worship. Lucille Rhndy, '34. very ay is a Clflerw gay - Every day is a new dayd- Bnt never one that 'is to stay. Time may come, and time may go, Bringing things we never know. Every day is a new day- Thlngs happen that always pass awayj No matter what they have been They'll never be the same again. Every day is a new day- Be ready for it in every way. Today comes this way but once, The same as years and rnonths. Frances Frost, '33,
