THE SPEc'rA'roR Seven
responsibility which constitutes an executive. Connie's likability and
versatility have helped her to be a good Prefect. This year study halls
and libraries have been better than any year before due to Connie's
understanding and organizing study hall keepers. She also had the fore-
sight to see that Iuniors should be trained for next year, and the last
part of school made all study hall keepers Iuniors. But the best and most
important thing about all three of them is that they work in perfect
And so they're leaving. But because they have been together since
the grammar school, because they are known and liked by all the stu-
dents-and the faculty as well and because they are real friends as well
as leaders and executives, they are leaving the school in excellent condi-
tion for next year's class. And they are also leaving with the knowledge
that they have done their iob and done it well. . Ed. '42
I think it was Burke who said "We stand where we have an immense
view of what is, and what is past. Clouds, indeed, and darkness, rest
upon the future . . I can not help but feel how applicable that is to me
at this moment, and especially during these last three weeks of school.
I'm afraid I'm looking upon Iune 10th more as a commencement than
graduation. Yet, I don't want to leave McGehee's even ,though I know
I am old enough, am supposed to have finished my work, and have re-
ceived all I can from high school. Ignoring the fact entirely that I have
gotten my credits,I feel that I have left so much undone. There are thous-
ands of opportunities I have let slip by for making a friend, or learning
a little more about Cicero, for instance. I'm afraid I've appreciated
the faculty and realized how grand a person each one is, too late.
I've seemed to have stressed the wrong things, and had the knack
of being in on all mischief and deviltry for the last seven years.
And often it's been a lot more serious than merely mischief. Yet
despite all my ingratitude, this school has given me something which I
shall never be without-even yet I can not estimate its value. For at last,
I have a measuring stick for life. Over a period of seven years at Mc-
Gehee's impressions have slowly been penetrating my brain, unwilling
and unknown to me. Values have formed about thousands of little things
and all kinds of people. Even though I may not always follow my pre-
cepts I do know what is right and what should be done.
And so next year, I will be able to "try my wings" as it were, see
how much of my theories work in practice and make a fresh start. That's
why I call Iune 10th Commencement, but I shall never forget that from
which I am graduating.
