So you're graduating!
Your last year—indeed, your last j
day—of school or college is coming j
. close. You are finishing what j
you started 11 years ago—or four'
years, or seven. You will have a
diploma or a degree. And a class
You will be proud of your
sheepskin; you will frame it and
hang it in your room or your den
or your office. You will look on it
in the years to come and say
fondly, "I sweat blood for tnnt
thing!" And you will aiways b-i
proud of your name printed there.
But you'll love your ring or pin.
Some day, through the years to
come, you will lay it aside and not
wear it any more. But you will
keep it and always cherish it. And
when you come across it among
old keepsakes you'll smile fondly
and say, "My old class ring!—
Class of '47—Quite a while ago,
that was. And quite a ring that
was . . Yes, you'll always love
your class ring.
Now It'* Over
Your finals are over, the last
hectic entertainment is through.
Commencement has been said, a
ringing valedictory proclaimed,
class history read and a witty
class prophesy foretold. In cap
and gown you will listen or not to
ponderous utterances of baccalau-
reate sermons. High ranking dig-
nitaries will journey from afar to
address you and tell you how to
live and get the most out of it.
(The best advice I ever heard
given a graduating class was by
a young clergyman who said, "I
hope you live all your life!").
So, commencement is over, the
diploma has been delivered into
your hands, and you have finished
with school. You are showered
with congratulations and good
It's too bad you can't have all
the good luck wished for you, that
your path won't be as rosy as pre-
dicted. What your kind friends
really mean when they wish you
so well is that you will drink deep-
ly of the wine of happiness that
comes your way, and that you'll

have some source of strength to
support you when the way is dark
and the going is rough.
This quiet, graying man who
clasps your hand so firmly and
wishes you the best of everything
is really saying, "I hope it won't
be too tough for you unlearning
a lot of what you've spent a whole
school life studying. I hope when
you're really grown up and dis-
illusioned of a lot of things that
you'll still be as fine as you are
More Good Wishes
That good friend of your
mother's—that nice, middle-aged
lady—is really saying, "I hope life
will always be as sweet as a sweet
young graduate! It won't, but I
wish it could be . . . only it would
ruin you, of course."
The jolly, fat fellow with his
jovial good wishes is really telling
you, "Keep your chin up, kid. No
matter what, keep your chin up
high! . . ."

be telling you to have a whale of
a time whether you ever amount
to anything or not, while she
clasps your hand decorously and
wishes you every success.
They wisely and kindly don't tell
you you'll succeed in life if you
work like a beaver and be good
and smart and brave and strong
and kind and true, and work like
a dog, and behave yourself and
don't get into trouble and don't
think you're smart just because
you have a diploma because you'll
learn better. They're not too sure
of all that themselves because
they're still learning, though com-
mencement for them has been over
a long time. But they will tell you
to "live all your life!"
