It was through your foresight, your wise judgment, your Undying interest, and your continual jlencouragement that has made possible •for us, graduation from High school. , "It is because you, our parents, and .cur teachers, have kept before us the i-jvision of the ideal; and it is because <you, our board of education have giv- 'fen us the facilities and the materials JR-ith which to work, that we are now feble to realize that ideal. * "Elbert Hubbard has said—'It is a ; %onderful thing to have somebody be- Jlleve in you? This is the one great ^benefit of love. Love idealizes its Abject. It exaggerates little tenden- *£ies into great virtues, possibilities in- sto genius. Love is action and reac- ftion. Where much is expected from an ^Individual, he may rise to the level of TBvents and make the dream come true. $ "Parental love is the great, surging, Divine current that plays forever Ithrough humanity. We see it manifest in the dumb animals, in the moth- j,er bird who dies rather than desert ifcer young; In the tigress who is in- vineiSfe when she has her babies to «prbtect. How much men of genius *we to their parents will never be ntold in cold words, because love can- %ot be analyzed; nor placed under "And thus it was your love for us £hat has kept us rising higher toward .our ideal. f "At present we can express only <iiur gratitude in ^ ,rds; but time will ^faring deeds whic.i will themselves %peak our sincere appreciation for all your efforts toward us.

So, again, we bid you a hearty welcome." The valedictory was delivered by Miss Hilda Frederick and in a brief nddress, touched on the splendid opportunity afforded the young people, expressed the appreciation of the class and bid farewell to the teachers and others responsible for the success of the class. She said: "Tonight, we, the members of the clnss of 1930, will participate in what I feel I am safe in calling both the saddest and yet the gladdest events of our life: gladdest, because it denotes the achievement of success of High school life and is the first step in the commencement of the new life which we are about to enter; saddest, because it signifies the severing of old ties, the breaking of old friendships, and the exit from this peaceful, happy life to a strange, new life. "Our feet are planted on the sands of life, and the waves of the stormy •wind-tossed sea are rolling round about us. Out into that seething mass of water our little ship must make a successful path until it reaches a safe haven. The beacon light of knowledge and wisdom ever shines before us to light our way but often its light will be dimmed because we have not the ability to perceive the outcome of our journey. "For four years our little bark has hren safely moored in the ca.lm harbor of oiir school. The tempests which sometimes penetrated it were subdued by our wills under the guiding influence of our teachers. It is then, to you, our beloved teachers, that we owe our thanks for your help in making our little ship strong and seaworthy for the long and dangerous journey it must take. We wish to express to you our appreciation for your efforts in molding our characters into strong noble men and women. "Since childhood a splendid sea of opportunity has lain before us, and it is to our parents and guardians that we express our thanks for their part in enabling us to take advantage of it. Their hands have ever been at the helm of our ship, piloting it along the small stream of life with its many twistings and turnings until now it is ready to make its entrance into that larger sea of life. But for them, perhaps many of our members would have been shipwrecked before they ever caught a glimpse of the glorious future which lay ahead of them. May we not fulfill their faith in us and make the cherry and white symbols of promise and grateful resolution from this class that must never be afraid to show its colors, as we push out to perform our mission in the splendid sea of a bigger opportunity. "And now, I want to take this opportunity on behalf of my classmates tn bid farewell to our teachers, our fiiends. and all the memories that are associated with our life here. You have our gratitude and our heartfelt thanks for all that you have done for us. The waves of the sea are rolling higher and a clarion ca.ll seems to come ringing over the waters for us to lift anchor and push forth into this raging sea. The light is growing brighter, the twilight recedes and in the glorious coming of the dawn we set out with hope and promise anew. Farewell teachers, classmates and friends. Farewell memories of dear eld H. H. S. "The class of '30' has commenced its journey of life and has found 'not twilight but dawn.' " Academic Course. Julia Magdeline Adams Myra L.
