Class of’4l
A changed and startled world faces the graduate of 1941. Youths
now completing their scholastic careers find themselves a bit
closer to the “top of the world” than their fellows of the past
few years.
For while it’s a tense, torn world . . . the very elements that
have given it tenseness and that have ripped it apart are re
sponsible for giving this class of 1941 many of its opportunities.
First, long periods of unemployment do not immediately face
the graduate. For actual jobs are to be found in defense and al
lied industries. There is the career military, the skilled trade
and general upswing in employment to welcome the newcomer.
That’s the big thing most graduates of recent years have had to
worry about . . finding jobs. Now the jobs are here. Men
Wanted . Women Wanted ... Help Wanted. And getting these
jobs, graduates find themselves a bit further up the proverbial
ladder that leads fas the artist’s conception here shoivs it) to the
“fop” and to “success.”
Then, too, the very discouraging aspect of civilization, 1941
style, with its wars, its aggressions and its unholy thirst for
power on the part of some nations and individuals, offers to the
graduates a challenge. A challenge to do great good, to repair
devastated lands and to build anew.
So, graduates of *4l ... find work for your hands ih helping to
shape a new America; a new democracy and a new world; and
find work for your heart in the supreme effort to restore high
human ideals.
Thus will the “top of the world” be reached, and thus will
“ Success” mark your path.
