FRANK R Vxfixssuuo Superintendent ol Schools T O THE GRADUATING CLASS: tt is relate-cl that Ptolemy ll in the Third Century B. C., desiring to have translated into the Greelc those portions of .lewish Literature which later became part of our Old Testament, sent for seventy-two .lewish scholars to come to Alexandria to malce the translation. According to this legend seventy appeared and were loclcect up in seventy incliviciuat cells with writing materials, ancl at the encl of seventy days emergect with a translation which was iclentical in every respect. This remarlcahte example of uniformity has heen linown in Bihticat history as the Septuagint version, or the version of the seventy. You are this year emerging from one stage of your academic training, in this you shoutct have ctevelopect a certain uniformity. You should have uniformity of loyalty to your Government, church, home, school, and friencls.

TO THE GRADUATINC- CLASS: An impressive cartoon appeared in the pages of the daily press some months ago. It depicted the usual commencement scene, even to the serious countenances of the graduates. The strilcirig thing in the cartoon was that each diploma was carefully wrapped around a copy of the daily newspaper. The commencement spealcer in addressing the class said, "You are not going out into the world M you are already in it. Talce a loolc at it and see what you want to do about it. You will find your diploma rolled up with the news of the day." You, the Class of 1944, can comprehend the implications of the cartoonist. You have experienced the profound impact of world events during a large part of your high school course. Your plans for the future have been adjusted to the war needs. Education is an essential industry in the winning of the war and the achievement of a lasting peace. You are among the products of that industry. Education for victory requires skill and courage in battle, efhciency in production, competence in volunteer service, and a will to win, based upon a detennination for a better world in the future. The ultimate test of education,s contribution will be determined by the efforts and achieve- ments of American youth. ln the pictorial writing of the Chinese the word Hcrisisn is composed of two pictures, one representing disaster and the other opportunity. The situation in the world today is characterized by this symbol. The titanic etlorts of our men now in service have insured our country against disaster. They are Fighting for a better world. lt is hoped that the primary taslq of you and your generation will be to dedicate your worlc, your thoughts and your dreams to building it. Great opportunities spring from great needs. The realiza- tion, of a world society of free men is worth the struggle to attain it, 1 l 8 LLOYD S. MICHAEL Principal
