Um' Szzpezfintencleni Speaks
This is the season when the students and graduates
of the schools across the nation are asking: What will
the future bring?
The past is recollection. The present is actual
experience. But of the future we say, "Who really
knows?" Certain truths can guide us. We know all
too well the ingredients of man-made friction both in
the world at large and in the narrow confines of our
home communities. We know the factors that bring
discord. We are aware of a duty to find ways to re-
move the influences that keep us in conflict with one
another. We are not lacking in knowledge of things
to do to make a better world, but we do lack the
will power to do them.
We look admiringly at our new inventions. We
constantly seek mechanical devices to get more en-
joyment out of life, but we have never invented a
better formula for human behavior than the Sermon
on the Mount.

The foundations of understanding between men
were established long ago. Man has accumulated e-
nough knowledge of the necessary principles of law and
order to build a free society. Faith and conviction
based on everyday experience is the moral philosophy
that guides our lives.
We do know the future in terms of our experiences
The real question is whether we are willing to meet
the test - will we let greed and selfishness reign when
we know there must be generosity and unselfishness,
will we be brave and resolute when we find it easier
to be craven and cowardly, will we extend a hand of
friendship and with love open our hearts to other
human beings? These are the obligations of our inner
Human knowledge does ITOI perish. It lives on
under the inspiration of Divine Providence. Each
moment of our life reminds us of what truth really is.
With faith in His Wisdom we can face the challenges
of the future, courageous and unafraid.

Broadcast Makes Forwara' Changes
The BROADCAST staff was concerned with perfect
copy in each edition of the paper. Copy was read
first by the editor, then checked by Miss Ross for gra
matical errors, and read by Mrs. Stombaugh for pro-
per leads and information. The January edition of
the BROADCAST was dedicated to Dr. Ralph H. Focht,
who had practiced medicine in the Strafford commun-
ity for the past forty years. An artlcle on the medical
career of Dr. Focht was the featured news item.
A major change in the school newspaper this
year was the addition of two ext:ra pages. Interest-
ing news items were stressed and complete coverage
of the community activities, in addition to school
activities, was the goal of the entire paper staff.
Many news pictures in the paper have furnished an
interesting diversion from the usual columns of copy.
Stenciled headlines were featured and action verbs
