Bmilur eliiKH of I-lurtford With School
of 1922 d proclaim thlH, the ICth.
day of May 1922 as our claBs day.
Which marks t'ie supreme event of
our school live, the event to which
we have been looking forward for
the past four years. It has been
our greatest munition, the goal we
set out to reach, though It peemcd
very distant and bard to attain at
times, wo forged our way on "With
that persistence that trlumps over
all obstacles and each year brought
us nearer our goal until at Inst we
have surmounted the heights and
renehed the goal of our ambitions
which Is lubled Graduation.
In this advanced age, when only
eduritloii countx, It behooves all
Amtrlcnn boys and girls to educate
themselves; to equip themselves
with this invincible armor of learn
ing that when they meet the world
fae to fnce they will not be baffled
by the problems of life but prove
themselves equal to the situation.
In order to reach this degrco of
perfection It requires much time
and study, and that Is Just what we
have been giving, and we hope have
succeeded In accomplishing our pur
pose. And I think we hnve, and I
am sure that where we go or what
ever we do that a b"rlght future
awaits all of us.
The groat question with us now,
as we are leaving school, Is, What
ure we going to do? Some of us
may continue our course of study
for a time; others may enter busi
ness or take up some profession.

we hnve a prophet who has been
kind enough to reveal the future to

where our paths divide and we must

that years to come will find us,
