B I' A Mercury 3 Yearbook Dedication We, the class of 1955, dedicate this yearbook to Miss Hortense Beeman, in appreciation for a job well done here in BFA. In her 17 years here, Miss HIV, as she is fondly known, has impressed us with her acute sense of responsibility and cheered as with her ready sense of lznnlor. In gratitude for the time, effort, and work she has expended for as in leading us in the straight path of education, in staying late hours to make our acting a success, and in always wearing a smile and having a cheery word, we dedicate this yearbook to Miss Beeman, our teacher, advisor, and friend.

4 B. F. A. Mercu y Itfs Your Future How many of you in the last few months have run to meet the mailman and have been handed one, two, or maybe more brightly bound paper advertisements, from some college which is trying to entice you to use their school to continue your learning? I know that I have sometimes regarded these little things as a bother and cursed them as just another bundle to load off on the mailman. I said to myself, "I know what I want to do, why should I waste my timef, But, do you and I really know what we want to do? We do not realize the magnitude and importance of the choice we are about to make. All our life, up to now, we have been sheltered. You can count on one hand the important decisions we have been faced with up until now. Even these decisions have been made with the aid of parents or other guidance of some sort. Now we are faced with the major decision of our life-that of how we are going to spend the next twenty, thirty, forty or more years. "Timev, you may think, "1've got plenty of time to make up my mindf, But, do you? Do you think a year of loaiing will be any help in deciding? This little game would continue and soon it would be too late and another life would have been wasted. VVe canit all be Einsteinis or Eisenhowers but each one of us is a cog, in a great machine. Every job is important, no matter how small, somewhere, there is someone who needs the help that your job gives. Can you let that person down? ' You can get help in deciding. There are pamphlets and books written by people who have studied for just this sort of thing. Men are trained to guide you in making this decision. But, when you get right down to the bare facts, itis you, you as a person, who must make this decision. These trained guidance directors arenit mind readers. Only you know what you want to do or what your secret goal in life is. This decision is not something to be passed off lightly. Think, just think! What you plan to do now may be your lifetime job. Can you afford to make mistakes and to treat this lightly? The answer-is no! This is your future, your life, that you are planning. You are on your own. The decision is up to you. You have been given the foundation, now it is time for you to build. VVhat will you build? VVill you construct a weak structure, one that will crumble and fall, or will you build a strong structure, a good life? How many of you can honestly say i11 your mind, "I have made my decision, this is what I Want to do the rest of my life. It is a decision I,m proud of and always will be." This thing you are deciding concerns someone very important, yourself. Your whole life and future is at stake. You have been given the groundwork. Letis see what you can do with it. Take yoiu' life, you are holding it in your hands. Mold it into a life that you can look back on and be proud of. And, when you are old and grey and are sitting in the sunshine, rocking the last few years away, you can say to yourself, 'Tm proud of what Iive done, lim proud of the decisions Iive made, and if I had to do it again, Iid do it againf,
