clo anything great requircs




The life of a high school revolves, ostensibly, around the strict academic life of its students and pushes the frills that adorn its curriculum into comparative unimportance. But, to almost every student, a place that occupies so much of his time and effort would be poor, indeed, if it contributed only the dry, impersonal facts of classroom material to his knowledge , There is so much to learn in so short a time. The success of a school and, thus, of its sfudents, depends upon so many variables, not tJ-re least of which is dedication capable, interested teachers Above all, however, lies the student himself . He, of course, determines the ultimate success of his educational experience. for squarely upon his shoulders rests the ability to see the fruition of all he he has learned. Exposing him to knowledge achieves nothing if he is nor eagel rs not eager to learn and readily receptive and if h does not persevele Iearn readrly receptrve u he and exhibit a steadfast application to a fixed goal:

No great work is ever done in a hurry. To develop a great I scientific discovery, to paint a great picture, to write an immortal poem, to become a minister, or a famous general -- to do anything great requires time, patience, and diligence. These things lPer:dise lParadise Losetr lr- a are done in degrees. at a --sitting, nor desrees. Milton did not write did Shakespeare compose I'Hamlet[ in a day. The greatest writers must begin with the alphabet, the most famous musiciars once picked out their notes laboriously; a child must learn to draw a shaight line before he can become a Titian or a


It is with these truths before it that the staff dedicates the 1964 BOONDOCKER to DILIGENCE, hoping that ir will encourage all to begin cultivating this vutue, through which a true meaning in life can be realized.

language is rnore than mere memorization of vocabulary and grubbing of grammatical irregularities. With enthusiastic teachers to guide hirn, the student begins his apprenticeship in a new art of thinking, As he progresses through two, three, even four years, he realizes that language is, indeed, a challenge to oners thought, a test of his suppleness and ingenuity. It is an incursion into a new realm, the beginning of a quest that leads to the discovery, in prose and poetry, of a new source of aes-

thetic enjoyment. It is a sdlour into a distant and intriguing land. And, above all, it is a crossroads where individuals, and nations, can meet on a common
ground and form lasting friendships.
