THRICE LOVELIER ARE THE THINGS
THAT LAST, THE THINGS THAT ARE
MORE EXCELLENT. i
Once again the time has come when xiecol-
lections and hopes crowd upon us. The ipast
and the future are immediately brought close
to us. Our thoughts wander back to the itime
when the foundations of this Academy were
laid, and forward to the time when those vsdhom
itis our oflice to guide and teach will bel the
guides and teachers of our posterity.
On the present occasion we may, witih a
proud propriety, give such thoughts their lnat-
ural course. This is the seventeenth year of
your Academy's existence. At such jubilees as
these, jubileesi which no individual really isees
more than once, it is natural, it is good, Khat
a society like this, a society which survives all
transitory parts of which it is composed, at so-
ciety which has a corporate existence and a
perpetual succession, should review its annals.
It should retrace the stages of its growth, from
infancy to maturity, and should try to find in
the experience of generations which have
passed away, .lessons which may be profitable to
generations yet unborn. The retrospect is , full
of interest and surely blessed with instruction.
It is pleasant to look back, and equally
pleasant, also, to look ahead. Our innermlnost
thoughts are contained, or embraced, withl an
abundance of charm and erudite majesty' of
thought, in the poetic words of the immortal,
most divinely blessed Sir William Watsonzl
'As we wax older on this earth, l
Till many a toy that charmed us seems,
Emptied of beauty, stripped of worth,
And mean as dust, and dead as dreanrs,
For gauds that perished, shows that passed, l
Some recompense the Fates have sent,
THRICE LOVELIER SHINE THE
THINGS THAT LAST,
The things that are more excellentf l

When Ridgewood Military Academy first opened its
doors during the war-strewn years, there appeared, in
1943, a serious need for trained, earnest teachers.
The first to respond to this call were two educators of
long experience and skillful versatility. Both applied them-
selves eagerly to the challenging complications of the new
school in Woodland Hills. As the years went by, they easily
adjusted themselves to the new conditions and the chang-
ing cultural environment of Ridgewood. Their interest
and presence was not confined to the classroom, but dur-
ing most of the contest which the seasonal sports produced,
they lent frequent personal and vocal support to the
They became personalities on the campus, alert and
eager partisans in the many activities that form the pat-
tern of a school's daily existence.
Then, in 1949, after their long careers in the educa-
tional service and with Ridgewood well established as a
scholastic entity, they retired from active duty.
As a token of our appreciation for their generous at-
tachment to Ridgewood, and for the vivid part they
played in the early years of the school, we dedicate this
year's TABARD to Mr. and Mrs. Edward Franklin Honn.
