DR. THOMAS W. HOWIE PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE SUPERINTENDENTS MESSAGE Today more than ever, the world needs men and women of stature and convictions. The complexities of modern every- day living demand all of our Talents developed to their fullest extent. ln the words of Thomas Wolfe, "lf a man has a talent and cannot use it he has failed. lf he has a talent and uses only half of it, he has partially failed. lf he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know." Here in your school life we have endeavored to teach you and help you to develop your abilities to the fullest possible degree. The measure to which you reach success will never be fully known until The tests of time and use have been met. We hope you have learned to use the maximum of your talents. THOMAS W. HOWIE Superintendent of Schools ln today's world the demand for ease and security is so great that we are in danger of losing our spirit of daring and the vision of high accomplishment. lf this happens we are lost, for America was built on courageous faith in God and on man's ability to greatly dare and nobly live. Therefore, l challenge the class of T955 to recapture this spirit of daring-daring that will lead you to high high adventure and noble endeavor! First, I dare you to develop a strong body! Many have been unable to fulfill ambitions simply because their bodies were frail. Secondly, I dare you to develop a creative mind! We so saturate our minds with cheap stories and second-rate movies, that we find little time for biographies thinkers and leaders, stories of achievement, great sym- phonies and oratorios. Thirdly, I dare you to develop an unselfish personality! No time in our national history have complexes been more a national habit. lt is Time to concentrate on qualities that make up a normal, happy personality. We must begin by getting the center of our attention and interest away from ourselves. Jesus said, "Find your life by losing it in service for others." Develop a genuine interest in other people. Accept these dares and life will be more worthwhile and youth will accomplish the great things for our day as they have done through the centuries. MARGUERITE S. BENTHALL MRS. MARGUERITE S.
