Administration Only a few people are so fortunate to have the talent to create great paintings. Most of us, however, do have the ability to make our own lives a piece of art if we are willing to work with the diligence of a true artist and make the sacrifice which he has to make to create a masterpiece. Different painters have entirely different concepts of real art. Modern artists attach little importance to sub- ject matter or realism and judge a work of art by entirely different standards. Any painting is the result of the efforts of an artist to express his own ideas. Great art has never come from an attempt to copy others. So it is with your life. To make your life a work of art, you must labor diligently and make the sacrifices in time and superficial pleasure that are necessary. Most of all, you must live by the high ideals which are your own and not according to plans of others with lesser aims and different concepts. During three years at Whitney, with the help of advisers and instructors, you have had the opportunity to develop ideals of living and plans of action which will enable you to make the rest of your life a work of art. Moy yoirlre- uccessful in this endeavor. -A v n C. ii ppus Principal I have been wondering why the English idiom is work of art. Why not play of art? Or some less strenuous, more relaxing word? Why work of art? Is it because " There is no excellence without great labor? " Is it because we need to remind ourselves that, though a " thing of beauty is a joy forever, " that thing does not just happen? Well we know that if our lives are to be works of art, great effort is required of us. Design, balance, color, symmetry, discipline, freedom we must incor- porate with conscious endeavor into our lives, or they will not be there. We must take pains with our lives. Maybe work of art is the best way to say it. May we all labor diligently to produce a masterpiece. — M ss Susannah West Associate Principal n

A human being is a work of art: a subtle blending of the physical, mental, social, spiritual into a delicately balanced life. So completely entwined are the parts that a disturbance of one can create an imbalance difficult to repair. However, main- taining the symmetry odds depth, strength, beauty. Matthew Arnold said, " Life is not a having and a getting, but a being and becoming. " — Miss C eona Chetisfer Assislant Principal , -- i u s, t - L LA e A4(ss Chef sfer Ai ss " esi hAr. Bippus
