[ '2 RINGMASTERS OF THE BIG TOP The schools of America stand at the threshold of a new era in their history. If they perform their full function, they are to furnish the understandings, the competence, and the will for greatly improved human relationships in our own culture, for more understanding and intelligent relationships with the rest of the world, and for the creative transformation of atomic power into better living. They face a great crisis of opportunity. They may know now with certainty that their critical re-evaluation is in the near offing, that new demands will soon be made of them, and that a new and more complete dependence will be placed upon them. JOHN R. MOSS BOARD OF EDUCATION JOHN R. MOSS, B.S., M.A. Behind the gay medley of the circus there are a few serious-minded, indispensable men who work to make the show a success. Likewise we have in the board of education a group of public-spirited citizens, representing a cross-section of American life, working untiringly to solve the problems of the school and to make the educational system function properly. Mr. Moss is the Superintendent of Schools and works ceaselessly to keep the schools running smoothly. Mr. Moss feels that knowing students is the most interesting part of working in schools. He often attends school dances as a form of recreation. Also enjoys reading and a good game of chess. Left to Right: B. O. Luttrell, Raymond L. Kiier, Som Blair, Francis Hartwick, W. A. Bittner, P. O. Foley.

[13] OTTO R. ARIENS, A.B., M.S. The principal has, by the efficient administration of that office, gained the respect and gratitude of the students and faculty alike. About his work Mr. Ariens says, "There's never a dull moment." Likes to collect old books on the physical sciences. Has taken an interesting trip through the Florida Everglades. RINGMASTERS OF THE BIG TOP To the Students of Paris High School: Solomon once said, "Above all things get wisdom; whatever else you get, get understanding." Such advice was good in that ancient time; it is still good today. Knowledge alone is not enough. Students who go through school memorizing facts may, or may not, be getting understanding. They may even be able to manipulate, or reason with, the facts. This is better, but still it is not an indication of wisdom. As students in school, or as students in adult life, we must appreciate the usefulness of what we know; we must recognize the responsibility that is ours by virtue of the fact that we possess certain knowledge. Going still further, we must appreciate the responsibility to use our knowledge for good. It is commonplace, yet true, to say that ours is an atomic age. The words "atom" and "atomic" bring forth to the modern mind visions of almost unbelievable power; power for good or evil. The way this power shall be used will depend largely upon the wisdom and understanding of today's boys and girls, young men and women. Therefore, "Whatever else you get, get understanding." OTTO R. ARIENS Mr. Ariens takes care of the permit line. Student Council members confer with Mr. Ariens.
