To the Seniors:
My young friends, as you are about to leave the sheltering influence of your
high school, I want you to take with you this little bit of life philosophy-True
success is not excclliug or equalling someone else, but making the most of your
own capacities and opportunities.
I am very happy to have a place in your Year Book and ask you to accept
my thanks for the honor.
Very truly your friend,
H. M. MENDENHALL.
