WHO AM I?
I dwell in obscure knowledge, A part and apart.
Amongst clamorous quietude (still and ever stirring)
In a world of frivolity, funerals, facts, fighting.
Simple -- to define my surroundings -- Surroundings
Moulding, shaping my notions.
Environment alters,changes,transforms the impressions of men. (some say)
Yes, But environment has never created a man.
So I ask: who am i?
Not what? when? why? how?
A representative--of love between two ( and many before them); of
of beliefs past and present; of ideas
An image of God
Hope -- for world improvement
Controversy a product of a generation.
who am i?
i AM rebellious (i even rebell at certain rebellion).
i AM a believer -- in God, man's worth, society.
i AM a lover; i feel.
who am I ?
i am unique.
A special combination to myself; those who love or hate me
but not positively definable
Only one thing is positive --- i am I.

fidence in their world of tomorrow.

the full value of joy you must have somebody
to divide it with. -Mark Twain

All representatives of Florida Citrus

Svanced management studies at Jack-
sonville during April. The course was
sponsored by the Federal Intermediate Credit
Bank of Columbia which provides leadership,
supervision, and agricultural loan funds for
68 production credit associations in North and
South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Some
of the subjects covered in the course were
credit policies and procedures, evaluating
farmers' financial and operating statements,
progressive thinking and growth. The school
was part of a continuing program of training
for all production credit association directors
