THE DE-O-WAIN -STA I must make a sacrifice for my education, I did not join the Alpha Phi Rho fra- ternity until the latter part of my junior year as I knew I did not have the time for the social and political duties that such membership placed upon one." "Was your attitude toward school changed when you entered college?" I asked. "My attitude toward school was completely changed, as I was not under the influence of my parents. I felt grown up and I realized that I was there for a purpose." "Did college contribute to you anything besides an education?" "Most assuredly it did," he answered. "Far more important than the gen- eral education I received was the broadening influence of contact with others. I met different types and classes and soon learned that there were other opinions beside my own." "Tell me about your first position after graduation," I requested. He replied: "My first position was a civil service position. I became a chemist, taking up scientific work on the New York State Public Service Com- mission. I held this position for several years but soon discovered that I pre- ferred teaching." "What other positions did you hold before you became principal of Rome Free Academy?" "I was science instructor at Cazenovia Seminary for several years. Later I served as principal at Manlius High School, Liberty High School and Glen Ridge High School, New Jersey." "Would you recommend your profession as an enjoyable and profitable one?" I asked. "It is not as profitable as business," he replied. 'lHowever, it offers a won- derful opportunity for doing good. One is able to work with young people and obtain their confidence. There is nothing formal about this relationship and it makes me happy to say that in the moulding of character people of my profession come next in importance to the parents." "Do you think our new building has produced a change in the school spirit as a whole and the spirit of the individual boy and girl?" "Yes," he replied, "it has produced a wonderful change in school spirit. The students have taken an increased interest in their work and an increased pride in the care of the building." "How long have you been principal of Rome Free Academy?" I asked, as I rose to depart. "I have been here since September, 1920, and hope to stay as long as my services are of real value to the community." As I opened the door to pass out, after having been invited to come again, I expressed the ,hope that it would be many years. That same hope would be registered in the votes of the pupils and faculty if they were to express them- selves. J. B., '27, 10
