From The Sherman Bulletin:
"We have all been so intent upon
the limited round of our own personal
tasks and ambitions, that we have
failed to notice the gradual changes
that are constantly taking place
around us. When some incident calls
any of them to our notice, we just take
them for granted and accept them as
having always been. During the
school year, the incessant hum of in
dustry has been a daily accompani
ment to the fleeting hours, we've paid
little attention to the fruits thereof,
which surround us on all sides.
