Watson, gentleman and educa- tor, the principal of Stoneham High School, stands in the minds of graduates as symbolic of their school. Friendly, courteous and soft-spoken, he truly re- flects our school ' s atmosphere. It ' s a small school — an informal school, a friendly school It has given us much more than we can ever return. In Stoneham High School, we have grown into young men and young ladies, we have spent the most formative years of our life here. Here we have formed lasting Ideals, attitudes and interests. Here we have built a foundation upon which our future and that of our country may well depend. What our generation accomplishes will be deter- mined by the education and inspiration given by principals and teachers like ours to the many clas- ses of 1942. They have done a fine job.

Item II — We, the Class of 1942, withdraw from the treasury the necessary money to purchase two large waste baskets for Miss Dunning and Mr. Thibodeau who have requested them as depositories for the gum chewed in their classes. Item III — Plans are now being drawn up to soundproof the assembly hall in order that the classes on the third floor be not diverted from their studies by the warn- ings of the Glee Club. Item IV — For the Juniors we are installing a chute to extend from the third floor to the lunch room counter. They may not be as lucky as we who have barely escaped breaking our necks in the noon " dash " . , Item V — For our faculty members we have purchased kiddie cars. Now they may not suffer unduly from the lack of gas and tires. Item VI — To those who follow we leave the great opportunity to be of service in maintaing the principles of our demo- cracy. May they help in extending to all men the benefits of our great free- dom. In witness whereof we hereby set our hands and seal, this twelfth day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and forty-two. CLASS OF 1942 Witnesses: Fannie M. Spinney Earl Thibodeau Luella M. Dunning Ruth Dewhurst Richard Cook Ye iclent Ad are o By DOUGLAS SEYMOUR f w, e i co me As president of the graduating class of 1942, I am very happy to extend to our parents and friends here tonight a most cordial welcome. To us, graduation is an accomplishment made possible not only by our own perseverance but by the patience and encouragement of our parents and teachers. We attribute our success to those upon whom we depend the most. We wish to express our appreciation to the school officials for ful- filling their duties so ably and to the faculty for not only teaching us but for developing our character. As we leave our school we face a grave situation. What tomorrow will bring us we do not know. We join with the thousands in hoping that the present conflict will soon have a brighter outlook. In any event, we should not allow it to darken our hopes and ambitions, or hinder us in accomplishing our purpose. This brings to mind the birthright and privileges that the founders of our great nation have given us. War has caused us to ap- preciate our democracy. It is our duty to preserve it by accepting the re- sponsibilities which face us in the future and by serving our country in whatever way we can. As we chose our course in life, let us remember Joseph Gilder ' s " The Parting of the Ways " . cTl e (Partincj of cJlie CJYays Before thy feet the ways divide: One path leads up to heights sublime; Downward the other slopes, where bide The refuse and the wrecks of Time. Choose then, or falter at the start, O choose the nobler path and part! Be thou the guardian of the weak; Ot the unfriended, thou the friend; No guerdon for thy valor seek, No end beyond the avowed end. Wouldst thou thy godlike power preserve, Be godlike in the will to serve! We have indeed come to the parting of the ways, but tonight we join in welcoming our parents and friends to the graduation exercises of the Class of 1942.

The class members have returned for the event and are chatting over old times as they admire the murals. These bits of conversation caught here and there may be of interest to you The numbers refer to the figures in the panels.) Irma Landers — Why hello, Blois Thomas, How are you? Isn ' t the new high school wonderful? Blois — It certainly is. Hurry, let ' s go inside. Oh look! The first mural is all about our social affairs in school. There is Mike Rolli (1) leading the first freshmen dance. Weren ' t we excited and thrilled. . . . Say, there ' s Ruth Dewhurst waving to us. I believe she was treasurer that year. Here ' s our Henry Aldrich (2). Didn ' t Bob Alward portray the part well in " What a Life " ? Irma — And wasn ' t Cassidy funny with her one speech, ' Good morning ' , striding across the stage in bloomers down around her knees. Blois — The next year Speed Cook, Irwin Gar- finkle, and Dick French had their chance in ' Smilin ' Thru ' . I didn ' t attend but I heard ever so many comments on how lovely it was. Irma — ' Captain Applejack ' was the play in our senior year when Kenneth Roberts turned pirate and Helen Adzigian became an alluring spy. Blois — I see Helen McLaughlin ahead. . .ex- cuse me, I ' m going to run up and speak to her a minute. Irma — Certainly. Well, if it isn ' t Dorothy Lena! How are you? Dot — Just fine. You know it ' s beginning to feel like old times, I ' ve met so many of our classmates. I just went into the auditorum. How modern the stage looks, but I doubt that they ' ll have any more fun than we did when we remodeled the old assembly hall. With Dick French at the head, the Dramatic Club did much to sponsor the venture. I ' m so glad he received the club award. Irma — Here is. . why it ' s Isabel Jaques (3) from the orchestra. Did you attend the concert in the Town Hall when the orchestra, under Mr. Tapley ' s direction, surprised all of Stoneham with its excellent music? Dot — Yes, I did. What wonders he ac- complished with the group and how they admire him. Irma — And what have we here? 5 One of our graceful, petit ballerinas (4). A star of ' 41 Fiesta ' . From a robust football player to a dainty toe dancer. . who would have believed it? Oh, look, a king and a queen are crowned, our charming Helen Adzigian and our ever popular Guy Wallace (5) at the gala Winter Carnival. That affair was sponsored by the Blue and White Club when it was still young. Dot — Yes, I believe it was. That was a worthy organization with its ideals in sports- manship and scholarship. Irma — Isn ' t that Willie Freeman in the front of that sports muraP Hello, Willie! Don ' t you wish you were back in school! 5 Willie — Oh. . no. I ' d just like to be playing baseball with the old crowd. Dot — Say, Willie, will you ever forget that memorable day in April when our Blue and White nine made league history? Willie — Sure, we were defeated 32 to 22 at Reading (6) despite our talented shortstop, Don Dillion. Speaking of defeat didn ' t the senior girls basketball team get sadly beaten by the Juniors! 5 Irma- — I ' d rather we didn ' t mention that. Anyway we couldn ' t help it, Mrs. Lawson said that old age was creeping on. Willie — Look, girls, a basketball player (7). Didn ' t Speed Cook and Johnny Maghakian display good basketball sense when they helped to win the second place cup ot the Lower Merrimac Valley Tournament? Dot — There ' s Margie Sission (8) defending our field-hockey squad. No one could equal her as full back. Irma — I wonder if Coach Harold Poole still carries that quizzical look on his face, wondering what happened to his team when the underdog Stoneham skated off with a 3 to 2 victory. Poor Melrose (9)! Dot — In our senior year didn ' t our hockey squad finish second highest in the league? CLASS HISTORY (Continued) Willie — Yes, and Co-Captain, Guy Wallace was the League ' s highest scorer. The other honors were taken by All-Scholastics Bad Man, Bill All i n, All-Scholastic Co-captain " Hot Dog " Rielly and All-Scholastic " Squeaky Junior " Kerrigan. Irma — Football — now tha s what I call a sport. I was so nervous wondering if Bud Hodson (10) would catch the bullet pass thrown by that studious student, Bill Jeffer- son. Dot — He caught it all right and we won the Thanksgiving Classic 6 to 0. Willie — Bob English was a spirited player, especially in the Johnson High Game when he sprinted down the field to score the touch down. Irma — Willie, tell us about the snake dance they had in the square after the Reading- Stoneham football game. . .why Dot, Willie seems to have disappeared! Oh. .oh, I understand this next mural is entitled ' Scholastic attainment ' , a tribute to our deligent students (11). Dot — How often we chided them for their long hours of study and yet how we admired them. Irma — Ha Ha! Has ' Hamlet ' got Bus Par- ons (11) down, by any chance? Or is it Irene Geremonte crying, ' I can ' t. I can ' t, I can ' t! ' Dot — Hello, Betty Sweet. How ' s the business world treating you? Betty — Fine thanks. Irma — That pin you ' re wearing, didn ' t the Commercial Club sell them when we were seniors? Betty — Yes, and I ' ve kept it all these years. I wonder if Miss Regish collected all the money from the poor innocent students who, some how or other, chewed gum in class? Dot — Isn ' t that Franny LeBrun (12) typing? Betty — Ugh-uh. She and Joe Carroll were the first students to find positions in the busi- ness field. Pardon me, I ' m going to run along. Irma — For goodness sakes, they ' ve preserved good old ' Muzzy ' (13). How hard we labored to pass those history exams. I bet Mr. Thibodeau is still with the ' fighting minority ' . Dot — French, (13), we just didn ' t mix. Every time Miss Spinney started to explain a conditional verb she ' d decide to bang the eraser against the ventilator, upsetting all thoughts of knowledge. Irma — Hello, Edna buinvan, i iow good to see you. Do you remember how furiously Mr. Miller shook the yard stick at our front row of girls? Edna — He always had his hand out to collect money for broken flasks and test tubes. Irma — Our first chemistry class was really quite terrifying with Mr. Miller simply glaring at the whole lot of us. Dot — Sugar and gasoline rationing, re- member? Edna — Yes, we had most a week of extra va- cation (14) while the teachers struggled from morn till night. Irma — I wonder if there are any more murals? Certainly there ' s one dedicated to Gradua- tion. Oh. . . what a lovely reception room. Dot — Over there is the Graduation week mural! The senior song birds (15). . we finally opened our mouths and gave forth with quite a volume. Irma — I distinctly remember how happy we were about practicing during a Biology and an English period. That ' s adolescence for you. Edna — Donald Towse, Isabel Jaques and Lois Waterhouse were announced as the Mac- Donald Medal winners. Didn ' t we feel proud of them, . .yes, and even a bit envi- ous. Irma — Gloria Baxter and Ray Anderson were the two juniors who led our class to receive diplomas. Dot — When we were juniors, Dora Kenney ond Richard Cook were marshalls. Irma — It ' s Douglas Seymour (16) giving the President ' s address of Welcome. Didn ' t he make a nice president? Dot — He certainly did! Irma — Our class orator, Kenneth Roberts, made a lasting impression with his gradua- tion address. Edna — I can still remember the strange sad- ness that stole into our hearts as we gathered together as a class for the last time. We were faced with a fighting world, diseased by hatred and grasping power. As we looked into the future (17) we firmly resolved to help restore peace and harmony to a war-torn world. Class Prophecy By Curl J. Evensen I was making a routine instrument flight from Baltimore to Portland on June 9, I9p2. You see I was delivering a new " Cosmic Ray Chaser " to our show room in that city. Sud- denly the sweet purr of my 2500 H. P. engine changed to a sound similar to that of a dying cow. I began to scan the mushrooming earth for a likely spot to slip my ship into when a large clear area with small white strips caught my eye. Oh, Daisy June! Was I in luck! It appeared to be East Boston Airport. As my plane rolled to a stop near the Municipal Building, a mechanic came over and asked me what had happened. After I had taken a good look, I decided that I was correct in assuming that this grease-monkey was none other than " Snuffy " Parsons, my old schoolmate. As " Snuffy " and I rolled fhe ship into the hanger, I caught sight of his old familiar cartoons all over the place, even on the doors of his new airmobile. i asked " Snuffy " where I could stay for the night and he suggested that I stay at the Powers Arms, a hotel under that able manage- ment of Margeurite Powers. Before I was out of the Municipal Building, Jake Wade and his taxi service surrounded me. Jake, in his over- sized uniform, told all of the other six-foot cab drivers that I was his customer, and so I was (much to my surprise). It suddenly occurred to me, as we were driving, that this was not East Boston but the city of Stoneham. Jake told me that I had just made a forced landing af Sfoneham ' s new million-dollar airporf. My! My! what ten years will do for a one-horse fown. A large factory looming up on our right sustained the name of Petroni ' s Swamp Soap Works. Jim was now employing many of his old chums, John Surefte, Art Trodella, Butch Smith, Santo Lembo, and Eileen Cur- ran. (Whoops! how ' d she get in here?) Large posters throughout the city advertised the command performance of Roessler Rol- li ' s circus, featuring Harry Samour as the aerial artist. Bob English, the most anemic man alive; Edward Minasian, author of " Blen, Blen, Blen " ; and John Cowles, the shortest tall man in the world. Further on, nestled in the hills, was Walt Cockerille ' s " Ducky Waddle Farm " and Bob Court ' s dairy. I guess Bob remembered his friends because we saw these gentlemen driving his trucks: Edward Babson, Henry Batchelder, Joe O ' Melia, and Albert Penta. As we neared Spot Pond, I was informed that Barbara I uney was keeper of the Black and Orange fog horns needed now because of the many canoes plying o ' er these waters. A large black limousine occupied by the now re- tired Mr Thibodeau and his chaffeur, " Shog- gler " Valente, whizzed by. I guess Mr. Thibodeau just could ' nt get along without Frank. Jake ' s taxi was running kind of low on water so we pulled into Vic Vacon ' s filling station and were greeted by Chief Windshield Wiper, Bob Hodson; his assistant, Elmer Out- ram, and ace speedometer checker, Charles Young. We arrived at the hotel and Jake gave me a dollar bill for being his first custo- mer. I went to the desk and who should look up at me from his high stool but our former Class President, Doug Seymour. Doug had bell- hops Pat Riley, Gerard Pattie, Rudy Rotundi, and Bill Smith carry my overnight razor to my room. Greeting me from the stairs, as I passed to my room, was Phyllis Hastings, wearing the latest thing created by Marilyn Johnson, international designer. The elevator was operating under the able assistance of Norman Spencer, who has never gone higher than the top floor. Eleanor Visocchi came to my room, within a few minutes, with clean linen and the evening papers. Bob Kelley, John Maghakian, Edward Phalon, Paul Bur- ditt, Joe Carroll, and Anthony Carboneau have pooled their brain trusts to form " The Broke Brokers " , so I was told by Ikey Freeman, the hotel dick. According to the papers, Bill Allin, Pa Cronin, Pup Dillon, and Ken Roberts were forming a terrific offensive for the Boston Bruins. Irene Ceremonte, Bullet of the Silver Blades, is rolling the people in the aisles during intermission of the Bruin ' s games with her superlative figure-skating. Albert Seward announced through a column in Don Towse ' s " Daily Blast " that the Mudguards would hold their annual tea under the front steps of the old high school. Al had talked his way up to a Staff Sargent and was now bellowing orders to privates, Fred Blaisdell, Winfield Day and George Hansell. Irwin Carfinkle is being CLASS PROPHECY (Continued) murdered nightly at the Stoneham Play House as " Hamlet " . He is being supported by Helen Adzigian as " Ophelia " , Azerlea Atherton as " Gertrude " , and Marjorie Downes as prompt- er. The eminent scientist, Robert Klein- schmidt, was busy inventing an eleven foot pole to touch objects that couldn ' t be touched with a ten foot pole; while Professor Pat Pat- terson was still trying to improve his Yo-Yo art After I had finished looking over the paper I decided to find some place to eat Doug, the desk clerk, suggested Duffy ' s Tavern run by Miss Ashby. The refreshing Stoneham air aided by all of the surrounding dairies, in- duced me to walk to Duffy ' s Tavern. As I strolled under the new skyway, engineered by Dick French, I saw the chief of police, Ellis Bradshaw, talking to Jim Shuttleworth, Head of the Public Works Dept. A small curio shop, opened by the wood sculptor of our class, Edward Richardson and his partner Ozzie Rounds, attracted my attention; so I ventured in to see Doris McEttrick, Edna Logan, Helen McLaughlin, and those two inseparables, Betty Sweet and Zoa Cutts, waiting on a rushing trade. While there, whom should I meet but the trio of eminent concert pianists, Kathy English, Isabel Jacques, and Marilyn Tarbett. They informed me that Lois Waterhouse was Dean of Men, Marjorie Sisson, coach of foot- ball, Bill Jefferson coach of checkers and chess at Reading Sub-normal. The faculty of that remote school consisited of Dot Fama, ace-typist; Franny LeBrun, short- hand expert; and Milly Monson, head of the accounting department. Upon leaving the shop I was carried away by the onrushing crowd which seemed to be heading in the direction of Ye Olde Smoke Shoppe, a combination smoke shop and gum emporium, operated by Al Sullivan and Marge Severance. The cashier of this refined joint turned out to be Dot Hunt, who has never passed a wooden nickel. Suddenly, out of the smoke filled room, rushed Madelyn Hart. During the course of our consversation I found that she, too, was headed for Duffy ' s Tavern During the course of our conversation I found almost developed a bad case of fenderitis as the old yellow terror of our rapid transit came whizzing along, driven by Charlie Jamieson. As we entered, we were hurriedly relieved of our outer garments by the head Dounc io, Joyce Peterson and Dot Masi, who handed them to Dot Poore and Helen Price, the hat- check girls extraordinary. Scarcely had I pu. my wallet back in my pocket, after paying the exorbitant sum which the hatcheck girls de- manded, when we were accosted by the three singing Chesterfield cigarette girls, Sis Ken- ney, Dewey Dewhurst, and Barb Poole. After having shelled out a few more shekels, I was shown to my table by the headwaitress, Rose Samour, whose able staff was comprised of the assistant waitresses, Mildred Meuse, Barbara Murray, Jeanne McCormack, and Dot Lena. The view afforded me by my table showed that Robert Riley was still keeper of the dogs at Duffy ' s Grill. Our meal was served to us with bicarbonate of soda to ward off any possible billious attack caused by Edna Sullivan ' s cooking. As the staccato of Albert Warren ' s accordion pierced our ears, Dick Cook speedily took his place at the mike as M C. First on the program was Miss Infor- mation starring Barbara Dunbar, and her veiy able assistants, Mary Fitzgibbons, Connie Sheridan, Flo Cullen, and Virginia Smith who bent everyone ' s ear with their chatter. Among the choice tidbits related to us was the facts that Charlie and Cass, now Dr. and Mrs. Kerrigan, were heads of the Shady View Rest Home. Their staff consisted of nurses Irma Landers, Dot Saxby, Esther Tashjian and Ellen Luce. We also learned that Choo Choo MacDonald was now demonstrating Lionel trains in the kiddy department at a local store, and that Dan Towse, in desperation, had finally joined the Spot Pond flotilla as captain of the swan boats. The finale was afforded by the Four Monotones, Blois Thomas, Ti Win- ton, Phil Ruggerri, and Alice Eccles. As the evening wore on and my eyes started to droop, I visited the Milk Bar, where Flip Stone and Bob Alward were jerking Lindy Loops for the gullible public. I palletted a Lindy Loop and returned to my hotel room where I reviewed the events of my first visit to Stoneham in 10 years. You have all heard my prophecy of your future fates, but don ' t believe it. Members of the class of ' 42, you face a world of chal- lenge. You will meet it with courage. Our Birthright - Democracy My fellow Americans, let us keep our birth- right — Democracy! Words like patriotism, unity, allegiance, and democracy are apt to receive scant attention by the rank and file of Americans who are sometimes prone to leave their thinking to others. Democracy is not something to be dusted off at every spring housecleaning time. It is the vital spark in America today. In these days when instead of a world made safe for democracy, we have democracy desperately seeking to make itself safe in the world, it is well for us to analyze this system of government which we so glibly take for granted. We all know that democracy is a form of government, through which the people rule through a system of representation and which guarantees to the individual certain political rights and civil liberties. To a professor of political science, such a definition would doubtless be satisfactory, but the American people must search farther for the light. Fo those who tear at the bowels of the earth, to those who wrest a livelihood from the soil; to those whose working hours are spent in feed- ing a ravenous blast furnace, in catching the denizens of the ocean depths; to all Ameri- cans, Democracy is a way of life. It gives the inestimable right to people to read the latest thriller, or to absorb a volume of scientific research; to devour mince pie and cheese and other indigestible morsels at mid- night. It makes it possible for youngsters to build castles out of blocks, and young men to construct them from air and clouds; for every- one to worship in storied splendor or sylvan simplicity. Democracy offers laughter and tears, joy and sorrow, pleasure and knowledge, yes — life itself; not a mere existence, but a full, ric,h meaningful life such as those who live under another system of government do not know, rior ever can know. A way of life must of necessity have a foundation. Every nation, just as every busi- ness enterprise or organization must have a framework, a set of bylaws, if you please, in order to exist. Thus Communism is based upon the reasoning of Karl Marx. Nazi Germany is led, at ‘east in part, by the mad dreams of a ruthless man, dreams expressed in Mein Kampf. The English point with pride to their heritage in the Magna Charta which was the foundation for future development in the democratic way of life in the British Isles. Our own nation is not an exception to this general principle. One bleak day in early fall, almost three hundred and twenty-five years ago, within a tiny, stuffy, over-heated cabin nearly one hundred courageous men gathered to aftix their names to a document that was to have them abide by whatever laws should be passed. — the Mayflower Compact. It is significant that even before the stalwart Pil- grim Fathers trod upon the soil of our land, plans were made to obtain that freedom which is dear to the hearts of all true men and for which so many have given even life itself. Through the years that followed, that spirit grew and waxed strong until it burned and gleamed from the barren New England Shores to those of the southern most states, and pushed back across the broad Atlantic, all vestiges of tyranny. In due course of time the Constitution of the United States of America was drawn up by individual states ' 2ary of wrangling under weak government. It has served its purpose well, indeed nobly. Many scores of years have passed; still it abides. It remains a living document, a symbol of our unity, growth, development, wealth, and rights, attained ends which it strove to make realities by its very existence. Every generation of Americans has yielded in time to another bearing yet more illustrious names. George Washington, Patrick Henry, James Otis, and Samuel Adams passed on oniy to be followed by Daniel Webster and Abra- ham Lincoln America has produced states- men, soldiers, artists, clergymen, inventors — leaders in every walk of life comparable to any in the world Democracy in America is an ever enriching, self-regenerating force. Yet today, democracy approaches a new crisis. The Americans of today face a new challenge, a call to action. As to what Pro- portion the present conflict may take, we may only surmise. Yet, of one thing we may be sure if we are to continue to exist as a living vital nation, that America must and will press on, and in the act of proceeding preserve for the world a vision, a dream fulfilled of the rights of people and the individual dignity of man. The swelling whirlpool of despotism is ever widening and increasing in rapidity and force. The situation calls for determined ac- tion. We must consistently refuse to view it with complacency and resignation. It is OUR BIRTHRIGHT— DEMOCRACY (Continued) our duty to cling to a faith in the eventual triumph of fhe principles of human freedom, as expressed so admirably in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. It is an inescapable fact that human society is undergoing fundamental changes. The forward strides in science have been transforming life the world over. As a result difficult situations, the necessity for serious adaptations have arisen. It is because of these conditions that lacking in leaders of sanity and goodwill, much of the world has turned to dictators. They have risen to power simply because of the comparative instability of the age. When the institutions of genera- tions tremble, people instinctively turn to their leaders for help, and should these prove in- capable of removing tension, there arises a mental condition which makes possible the advent to power of a dictator. It is this situa- tion of social crisis fhe world over that presents to us, the citizens of the United States, the greatest challenge of our existence. Can we meet this challenge - 5 Can we bring under complete control this new force - 5 We can if we remember that our land was conceived by men of destiny, courageous, strong, possessed of indomitable will. They preferred to rot in dark prison cells rather than live in comparative ease under despotism; to brave the terrors and hardships of a New World in preference to conforming to hateful principles. By such men it has contrived to be strengthed through times of adversity. In the struggle between despotism and de- mocracy it is imperative to the welfare of our land that not only do we organize to uproot the one, but that also by a determined effort, we attain a more worthy democracy in the pro- cess. To destroy tranny is a noble purpose, yet to do so at the cost of our democracy as a way of life would have empty consolation. The American people can determine to uproot the seed of dictator ship and bring to fruition the American ideal as expressed in the Con- stitution. Yet the pathway of the defense of democracy is burdened with difficulties. The achievement of the necessary military and economic strength may prove to be the easiest portion of our task. The chief difficulty seems to lie in the continuance of the ideals of democratic faith. Warfare entered un- advisably may foiecast its overthrow. The totalitarian state is the militaristic one. War is as desirable to such a state as it is destruc- tive to the ends of democracy. In attaining military security, we must guard against abandoing the basis of our government. Our only hope of real victory is constructing at once spiritual embattlements for the defense of our democratic faith. Should we fail in this, even though we should be masters of the world. We will have cast aside our birth- right in the Constitution. In order to counteract this danger, it is the duty of every Aemrican to develop that within himself which aims at the destruction of exist- ing social injustices; to strive for freedom and distribution of abundance to avert unemploy- ment while we have adequate resources and men ready and in need of work. To see that the catch phrases pertaining to democracy do not lose their truth; to redress just grievances when presented; in short, to perform the duties which our forefathers strove to carry out. Democracy is not, as Facists would have us believe, a synonym for unemployment, hunger, depression, weak capitalism, or prejudice. These indictments of the dictators merely reveal weaknesses yet unsmoothed in our way of life. We must produce leaders to remove these discrepancies. We must give to youth a sense of the purpose of life. There must be an element of heroism and idealism presented comparable to the blind fana ' icism that is instilled by the dictators. Democracy must continue to present to young and old an ennobling goal toward which to strive. The leaders of Democracy must truly lead and the people must keep their birthright. We face a crisis. Yes! It is a serious one indeed! Yet, America, under the Contsitution of the United States can go on! In the Words of Whittier: " God and our Charter ' s Right, Freedom forever! Truce with oppression, Never! Oh! Never. Wake Up AMERICA! Kenneth Roberts.
