TMKASJT MIMOURl •*i l*»e past, people have been one »i th« greate*t «xports from Ar- kttJKai," Dr. Lewis Webster Jones pmWsnt of the University of Ai- Vold graduating seniors last when he »pokc at the comment e«ercises in the High •chcol ataoMum. "However, Dr. Jones, pointed out trist in the most recent years there had been a marked tendency for ttie youot; people educated in Arkansas to stay In Arkansas and contribute to iU progress rather »hs>i migrating to other kales to d'Wop tiisir talents. Arkansas has made great in- areate In Ui« volume of profitable industries and in scientific agriculture, Dr. Jonas staled, and only by keeping Hie "best minds of Arkansas in Arkansas" can we expect our atoW to be great. In the past this shifting of the talents ot Arkansas to the more moneyed states created a problem, »nd only in .the most, recent years has t*ie problem started righting itself. The purpose ot the Arkansas School System is to develop osr human resources. Dr. Jont* sakL We must build knowledge, UM bsvtfe »< our modern ciTtll- xa4ion, and gel over the Idea that opportunities of the young are limited by the closing of the physical frontier. Dr. Jones stressed the idea that, by virtue of the lact that there was so many special fields there was no need for an Indllvdual talent to go undeveloped. With the modern complexity of industry, ero::orr.:ss and society there L? much room for Ux limitless expansion of the varying talents found in any graduating group. The problem lies in discovering which field your abilities d be directed toward, the *aker said. In college students there are many who have no idea of what they plan to do with their lives, Dr. Jones said, but that doesn't mean that they are wasting time by 'continuing their education, because that furthered educations helps them to. discover an ability or an attituj? tiidc might have gone <xvipletely vhjddeii, had there , not 'ween, a meiifls of recognition Unr.k;- eation. " - ..-• .-•".-•,• Dr. Jones in emphasizing the need ot • proper work habits explained that students who complain tiiat they haven't the abstract ability or the intelligence quotient to complete a task successfully but that they lack proper work habits. High Standards Stressed Dr. Jviwt, took issue with the idea that the sarly years were the only fe«aa*ive years of life. He advanced the idea that the period from 15 W X was the period of greatest development and the greatest influence in future habits and attitudes toward fellow beings and our work. Df. Jones urged that each student hoW for himself a standard of excellence and not be content with mediocrity. Dr. Jon«s spoke before a near capacity audience.
