WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1965. IRONWOOD DAIIY GiOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVt Three Retiring leachers Feted With a Banquet WAKEFIELD — The Lakeview Supper Club was the set- ing for a festive banquet honor- Ing three retiring teachers for their many contributions to the teaching profession. Mrs. F1 o r- ence Bordeaux, Mrs. Est her Hyppa and Mrs. Mildred Johnson received the plaudits ' of L ,heir colleagues and friends for iheir years of dedicated service. The Wakefield Board of Education presented floral centerpieces and orchid corsages to the honored guests. Colorful souvenir booklets were at each place setting. A hospitality hour, preceding the banquet, centered about a punch bowl which was flanked by colorful flowers. Several members of the Fut u r e Teachers of America, presided 3t the punch bowl. The program opened with the singing of the national anthem and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance by the assembly Grace was said by Mrs. Ella Moll. The featured speaker of the evening was Carl E. Kleim o 1 a superintendent of the Wakefield school system, who chose as his topic "It Takes But One," In hi inspirational address he stressed the far reaching influence o teachers, and recited a p o e alk revealed that "It Takes But One" to sense a child's lone- iness, but one to look Into his heart of fear, to understand and jive tne quick caress and bend o him a willing listening ear. A hild may be bewildered by many problems too big for him. * * * It takes but one to fan the dormant spark, smoldering deep within resentful souls, into shin- ng ligrit that dispels the dark, and lets them see themselves in useful roles. It takes but one to reach beyond the crust of hfrte, beyond ihe ugly attitude, the scorn, a faithless heart to liberate, and through love, another bridge is Dorn. Years of training, numero u s degrees, pleading, pressuring, drilling, drumming, will nev e r reach youth's hard, depected heart, until someone understands and cares. The youngsters of today are heirs to the trying struggles of our time. Mankind cries out, Teacher, know their bleak uncertainties, help them realize their worth, and then to stride with courage toward their destinies of service to God and their fetlowmen. It takes but one to reach beyond the veil of insecurity, distrust and fear and build new ties that make a richer life. It takes but one to break the shell of shy reserve, to lend an eager hand to those in need, to off e r solace in time of grief, or greet a stranger'with a frieindiy smile. America, born of hopes and dreams, the toil and sacrifice of daring men determined to live TEACHERS HONORED—Three teachers of the Wakefield school system, who are retiring this year, were honored recently at a banquet held at the Lakeview Supper Club.

He concluded, "We are gathered to honor three fellow-workers who through many years of dedicated service, contributed to the guiding, teaching, leading and encourag i n g of hundreds of youth who have passed through the portals of Wakefield schools and into the wide world to make their contribution. When they check in their books and other endless items in June, it will be to turn to a different phase of service. I am sure they will not be content to sit in a rocker all day. Builders that they are,. I am sure they won't completely withdraw, as they are part of the Infinite Plan." A tribute on behalf-of the st°fl to Mrs. Bordeaux for her many contributions to the profession during her 40 years of service was given Miss Grace Huston.
