16 THE CUCKOO (Emmiuutnnmntt GDratimts ‘NOT FINISHED, JUST BEGUN” Valedictory by Virginia L, Clark Dear Parents, Kind Friends, and Teachers, You can see by the motto which inv class has chosen, “Not Finished, Just Begun,” that we are not unmindful of the place we have reached in our intellectual training. Four years ago at our Grammar School Advancement Exercises we finished the first lap in the race; our first goal was reached and passed. And now, tonight, we have completed that High School career that we were looking forward to on that night. Yet, have we entirely finished our school life? Have we reached the end of our training; have we finished our preparation for future usefulness? No, our training and our talents, whether prepared in a formal school or in the school of life are ready just now to be put to a test in that bigger world outside the school. We aim to be successful and to be so we must render the greatest and best service that we can to sincerity. In other words, to be successful in a democracy means that we must render to society a just and equitable return in service for everything we reeive from it. Those who are best trained are the ones who give to society as much; nay, more than they take from it. We, the youth of the nation must solve the problems which have been opened by the recent war. The world today is being reconstructed and remade. We must do our part; we must render some serivee to the people of our nation. Those who lay on the battlefield, fallen at a time when they were rendering service, can not help fin- ish the task which they have so grandly begun. Today, we should and can echo the words of Abraham Lincoln, “It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.” Through our social studies and our problems of democracy courses we have been brought face to face with the big problems of the day. Some of the most important ones which confront us are the immigration problem, the capital and labor problem, the housing conditions, the health problem, the educational situation—all are worthy of our deepest study. We cannot hope to solve all these big present-day problems even in our own town. Only the best trailed, the best educated, and the most intelligent men and women of the day are able to study these problems from every viewpoint. This is one reason that the majority of the members of my class are looking forward to a higher education. As we are trained now we may be able to help these conditions, but, since we have only begun and have not finished our education, we surely cannot solve these problems. There are many educational fields open to us. Some of our girls are going to train to be nurses and some of our boys to be doctors and thus do their part toward rendering a wonderful service to humanity, and toward solving the problem of making our communities, and finally our nation, more healthy. About tO per cent, of the members ot my class are going to col-
