I assure you that the warmth of my affectxon

been none the less snncere
While all of you are qultedlfferent ln many
ways, yet all are alike In at least three re
spects Flrst, each has twenty four hours of
golden opportunity each day It IS up to each
to make the most of these, to make proper
choices, and to follow declslons to successful
Second, each of you has a lob That lob
IS to thank things through The person who
does this IS seldom taken In by crack pot'
ideologies or propaganda Those without
thoughts of thelr own become tools of those
who thlnk, however good or bad their thoughts
Third, each of you has a destlny Wnth a
clear cut label of ambltnon and applrcataon,
you wnll arrrve at your destlnatron, even rf de
layed en route Without them, you will draft
aimlessly to the unclarmed offace of obllvron
May each grasp has opportunxtles, act well

success rich In rewards and service to mankznd
