I VALEDICTORY. 1
EOPLIE of Sparta and IJear Parents: It is withgratitude that
the class ot 1901 appears before you here tonight. We feel
grateful to you forthe many privileges that you have give11 us to
enjoy. -We realize that the excellent schools of this city are the
production of your hands, and it is only through your sacrifices
that we have been able to complete their course. We cannot
repay you, but we want you to know that we appreciate your
kindness. We want you to feel that we are yours, and being
such, we ask that your interest and counsel may go out with us
into the broader avenues of lile. NVe thank you for what you
have done for us. Farewell.
Gentlemen of the Board of Education: For many years we
have been reaping the fruits of your supervision. You have de-
voted time and treasure in order that we might benefit, Zlllfl
tho, our connections with you were not direct, still we have al-
ways felt that you were there and that your sympathies were
with us. As a result, the largest class in the history of the
school is here tonight to thank you for your devoted kindness
and as we depart we hope that your interest in us will continue.
VVith a firm resolution Io act worthy of the privileges we have
had, we leave you with kindest regards. Good Bye.
Teachers of the lfaculty, Our Honored Instructors: Our
class-room relations are at an end. We have met together at
your feet for the last timt-3 and many of us have already hid you
a quiet good bye. But, though we take our leave ol you, the
fundamental principles that you have taught us, and the ex-
amples of industry and virtue that you have set before us are
indelibly stamped upon our characters and will remain with us
always. You have generously devoted a life's labor to our GIS-
sistance. You have shown us how to dig for hidden truths, and
when at times we foiled your plans by our heedlessness, as stu-
dents too often do, your reprimands were always made for our
best interest, and our petty difficulties only made us know each
other better. We feel, yes we know, that your connections with
us have had a broadening and an elevating influence upon our
future lives. livery branch of our education has made us
stronger, because we could not help but feel that every depart-
ment was in the hands ol a master. If in the dim future fortune's
frowning face confronts us, our only regret will be that we did
not seize with a firmer grasp the opportunities that were offered
while we were with you at Sparta. We can only thank you for
your watchful interest in usg and may your relations with future
classes be as pleasant to all as the fond remembrances in which
vou shall ever be held by us. Good Bye.
I Mr. lloty: To your our dgepest gratitude is clue. VVe
have spent four important years under your care and you have
always impressed upon us, by example and precept, those things
that go to make a noble and an useful life. In time of need we
have always come tu you for counsel, and though the duties of
your position require much labor and judgment, still we have
always found in you a helpful and a willing friend. It is well for
us to have been with you, and we hope for the continuation of
your intiuence with alma mater in years yet to come! We cannot
repay you, but may your reward be such as is only fitting for one
who is moulding the character of young America. VVe thank you
for your able guidance and your loving interest in usp and now
on behalf of the class of Nineteen One I bid you farewell.
Students of the Undergraduate Classeszn We have worked
and played togethe. since childhood, we have been assembled on
the same grounds, and have drunk from tI1e same fountains.
Our hopes and aspirations have been the sameg and years of
friendshiphave made us feel like brothers and sisters of one
family. But in every home the fondest relations are severed and
the children depart. So tonight as elder brothers and sisters we
must take our leave of you. VVe leave the old home to your care.
May you guard it welll The school's honor and reputation are
in your hands. Its future will be what you make it. You will
make it what you are yourselves. For the character of any or-
ganization is but the character of its individual members and the
character of any member is no stronger than his weakest hour.
Make every moment accomplish something, and before starting,
remember that the height ofevery pinnacle must depend upon the
area of the base. Lay a firm and ample foundation, accustom
yourselves to honest labor, for labor is the mainspring of pro-
gress. We are told to "strike while the iron is hot," but a
surer way is to strike to make it hot. Depend upon your own
ability! Bel and do IIOI seem. Then if you are given a work
to do, you have the strength to do it, and the honor of yourself
and scnool will never suffer. VVe know that you are workers: we
have seen your ability, and we do not hesitate to entrust the old
High School to your care. Today, a promotion has been made
along the course, and you who were juniors are Seniors now.
You are to enter the place left vacant by us. May you fill it
better. You are to bear the responsibilities that we have born
May you bear them nobler. Look well to the interests of the
school. Foster the principles of self government. And when in
your turn you stand where we do now, may you leave alma mater
with untarnished honor to those who follow you. XVe leave you
with best wishes lor your success. Good Bye.
Fellow Classmates: -Our High School days are over. The
time that we have been looking forward to has come. The time
when we might look back upon a completed course and feel re-
paid for our labors, the time when we must look into the future
and prepare to meet the world's demands. Thus far we have
journcyed together side by side and have helped to cheer each
other onward. But today the road divides and each of us must
go his way alone. As we stand here all the avenues of the
future are centered at our feet. VVe can see foot-paths leading
out in all directions, some winding along sunny brooks mid grass
and trees and fiowers, some entering at once into the graver
cares of lifeg while others lead on to greater institutions of learn-
ing. NVhichever course we choose let ns pursue it faithfully.
First learn what needs to be done tlirn go to work and do it.
Look after little things, let us not think that because we have
completed the High School we have ascended too high to stoop
for trifies, but remember that triiies make perfection: and per-
fectitpi is no trifle. True greatness consists in being able to deal
WiSSlS?w2iLll simple things: and the great man 154' woman of the
future will be'the one who can deal with common things and
common people, the one who can sympatize with, and live
the lives of all people in himself. The one who can see the
beauty of all humanity, and can bring the members of a crowd to
understand each other instead of struggling against each other.
Let lus therefore do away with all petty selfishness and live in a
broad and liberal atmosphere. For Socrates said, " Let him that
would move the world move first himself."
But why do I speak of things like these: You are familiar
with them allg and our hearts are now too full of thoughts more
sacred. The thought of parting has been uppermost in every
heartg and we have been trying to accustom ourselves to it while
we were yet classmates together. But we were not ready then,
no, we are not ready now to sever those bonds of friendship that
have drawn us closer together day by day. It is true we have
had 'our petty rivalries but somehow there exists a feeling be-
tween the members of a class that has caused us to forget each
other's failings and our little difficulties have only helped' us un-
derstand each other's natures. The days that we have spent
together will have a marked effect upon our fntureg and may the
friendships that have been formed in the old class be fountains
of pleasant memories that will spring up and refresh us in the
sandy deserts of life.
Friends, we can't stay longer. The time has come, and the
old class must be broken. May God bless each one of you, and
looking to him for help, may you go where duty calls you. As
we look into each other's faces we are made to feel that this may
be our last meeting. Tomorrow our little band will be broken,
and some will be seen no more. Oh, this is a sacred moment.
Let us cherish and keep it as our final picture of the old class
together as we breath our last Good Bye. And as these solemn
accents pass from heart to heart, I bid you God speed! Fare-

Men are too often judged by appeamiice. It is
wrong, but who can cllzmge the custom? Young'
n.en should therefore see to it that their outward

the times. There is no excuse for any one wearing
ill fitting clothes in these days. Take our

for example. They are tailored with as much cor-
rectness as those costing' live or ten dollars more,
and who cannot aliord one of these, or even two of
them in a year. We want our customers to look

self with this condition and prosperity will come to
you if it has not already done so.
