A group of jolly High School girls caught my attention a few days ago. Laughing and merry they were, but then, joviality is a true characteristic of High School students. When I saw this group so thoroughly enjoying themselves, it brought back to mind the “wonderful” days we spent at M. R. H. S.
I remember the fun we participated in, the work we did, and the dreams we dreamed and it is these dreams that we dreamed, or rather lived, that I am most interested in.
The aims of the High School pupil are exceedingly high. It is well that this is so. But what are aims if there is not the proper expenditure of time, energy and material. As John Oxenham has put is:
“To every man there openeth a high way and a low, and every man decideth the way his soul shall go.”
To many of the Alumni life tasks have opened. Others are still spending days in higher schools of learning, but wherever the Alumni members are, I am sure they join with me in saying to the class of ’29, “May your most cherished dreams be realized.”
