Earl Adams Addresses Students
Of High School On Career Day
Career day was observed yesterday at the Key West High School
by the upper Junior and Senior classes. There were 76 separate
requests lor various careers, some of which were grouped together
lor discussion groups. Townspeople who are actually experienced
in the fields about which students wished to know were asked to
speak to the different assemblies. For example, Dr. Delio Cobo held
informal roundtable discussion on dentists and dental technician
work as a career. Jonathan Jackson spoke to those interested in
The list of career interests took
In a wide range: and when one
field is mentioned, that category
includes.several branches. The out
line list itself is highly diversified:
radio, music, art, auto mechanics,
teaching, beautician work, nursing,
telephone operation, electrical
work and electrical engineering,
construction and building trades,
all branches of engineering, dental
wdrk, coaching, acting and reli
gion, tor example.
Clerk of lfonroe County Court
and former newspaperman Earl
Adams, addressed the general as
sembly before the groups broke up
into individual discussion sessions.
Said Adam in the opening
phrases, “I want you young men
and women to think of yourselves
as being part of that great army
of young people who are marching
step by step into manhood and wo,-
manhood. You are now in camp
and being trained and drilled.”
He said that standing still meant
stagnation and that participants
have to keep marching if they ex
pected to be successful. He doted
that education was only the begin
ning and that when school was
ever, the student had to make his
own application of what he had
Adame said "You must rely
more end more on your own ef
forts. The success of your chosen
life's career will* be due to your
own initiative.” He emphasised
that planning for higher education
must have e definite purpose, not
just a social reason. "Select a goal
and work toward it with sincerity
and eirnastness," ha advised.
To those who had to begin work
right after high school, he said
that purpose of aim was just at
important He put cards on the
table frankly end said that the
most important decision that most
persons had to make were the
"selecting of e wife or a husband,
end the other Is s career." In
either a hasty decision can be dis
Refering to manual labor,
Adams said that working with the
hands could bring just as much
satisfaction if the job were well
done as in doing a creative job.
He pointed out that everyone does
not have a creative mind or the
mental faculties to be professional
people like doctors, men of sci
ence, lawyers, architects, writers
and so on. "By the same token,"
he said, "all of us are not possess
ed with the ability to work with
our hands."
Adam* underscored the feet that
students should decide on careers
now and take an apitude teat to
help decide whieh career Is most
suitable for the individual ability.
He did add that new careers were

said that the best aim was to find

Adams said, "I admit that in a
small community like Key West,
.careers are limited. Tills, how
ever, should not be a handicap.
You have your own lives to live.
The interruption of family ties end
dose friendships to go elsewhere
to pursue your life careers is hard.
Your parents might even endeav

career where you are not suited
so that you will remain at home.
Reason with them. You will even
tually win out These same par
ents will be proud of you if you
attain success regardless of
where you may be living. You
must make your own decision."
In conclusion he said that the
"same ingredient is needed for
success in say career - ambition;
it is the desire to accomplish a
goal. The wfll to succeed in your
career should be the moat impor
tant thing in your mind and if
this will is strong enough to keep
you marching in step in the army
of life, you wfll be a success in
your chosen field of endeavor."
