We, the Senior Class of Nineteen hundred
Fifty-Four, wish to dedicate this annual to
our parents who have loved and helped us.
It has been their loving guiding influence
that has shaped and molded our characters.
Perhaps we haven't always been grateful
to them but we would like to show our ap-
preciation now by dedicating this yearbook
to them as a token on the interest of the
debt we hope to pay in the future.
Thousands of dollars spent on an education,
hundreds of hours of experience, a wealth
of knowledge and understanding, a genuine
interest in youth .... all added to a commen-
dable sense of humorg these things com-
prise the faculty of the Spencerville School.
They are always there, quietly in the back-
ground helping and advising us. They too
have played an important part in shaping our
lives. Sometimes after a snap quiz or a
unit test we haven't always been grateful
to them for their knowledge and help. But
now we would like to say simply thanks ....
thanks for all the things you have done for

THE POWER TO CHOOSE
One of the abilities which distinguishes man from
animal is his ability to choose. Although man has
this ability. he must have a social order which will
permithim to use it and better still stimulate him to
do so. Your school as an institution encourages you
to make the best use of your time in making choices
and in generally mastering all essential fundamentals.
At one time reading, arithmetic, and writing were
considered the necessary ones but today they are not
sufficient. Since it is possible for knowledge to be
used in a fashion which is detrimental to mankind.
it is therefore essential that it be directed by the
principles and concepts which were so completely
formulated and exemplified by our Lord and Master.
Your ability to choose will determine the worth-
whileness of your life.
Friendship is that condition of social intercourse
existing between two persons in which each being
fully aware of the faults and short comings of the
other still likes, respects. and is willing to sacrifice
for the other person.
One author said that one must be a friend in order
to have a friend. No lopsidedness is possible. not
even a 50-50 basis will do. We must go all out in
our respect and devotion or else remain in that twi-
llilghtoffriendship more honestly called acquaintance-
We were created to feel sublimely content and
well at ease when we felt the security of true friends
about us and could enjoy the mutual socializing that
only friends can share.
May it be the goal ofeach Senior to build such
friendships as will make him happy through life, and
which will also prove a sound basis for a fine com-
munity life. May each Senior find through friend-
ship that partner for life which will make all the
world more lovely and put a rainbow in every cloud.
May each find that Friend who gives all life a mean-
ing and each soul such a perfect outlook for the fu-
ture that there will be no "moaning of the bar" when
each puts out to sea.

Two new members have joined the ranks
of the Spencerville Board of Education
this year. They join with the rest in ex-
tending their sincere good wishes to the
Class of '54 who by the time this mes-
sage is read will have graduated. It is
the hope of the Board of Education that
when each senior's book of life has been
written it will hold as many pleasant
memories as this book with its record of
the senior year.
