HAYES, Principal CITIZENS OF WILLARD: Berkeley, a truly great city, built upon a hill, a place where founders ' ideals and dreams have been transmuted into homes, a cultural center which is ours to cherish and to promote, to keep great, and to make greater. With you, the leaders of tomorrow, I wish to share a great thought from Walt Whitman: Nothing endures but personal qualities. What do you think endures? Do you think a great city endures? Or a teeming manufacturing state? or a prepared con- stitution? or the best built steamships? Or hotels of granite and iron? or any chef-d ' oeuvres of engineering, forts, armaments? Away! these are not to be cherished for themselves, They fill their hour, the dancers dance, the musicians play for them, The show passes, all does well enough of course, All does very well till one flash of defiance. A great city is that which has the greatest men and women, If it be a few ragged huts it is still the greatest city in the whole world. What Endures? — Walt Whitman. C. K. HAYES, Principal. DAVID AMBROSE FROM WILLARD ' S PRESIDENT: Our best — no less has been our slogan, and Willard has aimed to live up to it. We have been constantly inspired in the fulfillment of this aim by the beauties and the many civic and educational ad- vantages afforded us in this city in which we live, Berkeley. Willard dedicates this issue of the Target to this city and wishes to express its sincere thanks and appreciation to City Man- ager Chester C. Fisk for the privilege of using the design of the City Seal on the title page and to the Berkeley Chamber of Com- merce for our Berkeley pictures. DAVID AMBROSE. BERKELEY, MY HOME, MY OWN Wide green hills rise into the sky, While nestled close to their sides, Is a city of peace and harmony Where friendliness ever abides. Birds joyously sing in trees lining the streets, On the campus ' green grounds we may roam, But it ' s love and happiness lingering there That make Berkeley my home, my own. ANN HUTCHINSON.

OUR BERKELEY We gaze upon the rolling hills, We look across the bay. We watch Aurora ' s chariot And see the close of day. We watch the big ships come and go, Their wakes the waters churn. We see the seagulls flying high. They dive, they wheel, they turn. But best of all we like to see The places near and dear, Our homes and churches, schools and parks, And factories in full gear. We walk along our Berkeley streets And talk to passers-by. We know a victory ' s coming, And there ' ll be a brighter sky. ELMER WHEELER.
