Dean Hackett


Alumni are the end-products of colleges and their success and attainments in life


may be thought of


ustifying the existence of their respective alma makers.


With nn


known exceptions the alumni of the Canal Zone Junior College have acquitted them-
selves well in life, and the college confidently expects the members of the Class of 1955
to do equally well.
The Junior College is always glad to hear from, and of, its graduates, and in the
course of a year it does hear, directly or indirectly, from a large number of them, includ-
ing members of even the earliest classes.
The college therefore hopes that in due
time, and over the years, it will also hear
from the members of the Class of 1955.

and for the members of the Class to lead
happy, successful, and well-adjusted lives

that they can make to them.

In conclusion, I wish to express personally my appreciation of the fine qualities of


ht e members of the class, rn
y


hope that their ambitions and dreams will be fulfilled


my confidence that their careers will reflect credit on the Junior College, their parents,
and their countries, and my sincere desire that they will always keep in touch with the

course would be a special boon to English teachers, since
their lot would be much easier if some other department
had the responsibility of seeing that young people learn
everything there is to know. For myself, or at least for the
English department, I should appropriate a course in Com-
punction. Everyone in this class-even the teacher-would
always be punctual, everyone would always be punctilious,
and nobody should ever have a puncture on the way to
school. Another course which I should dearly love to teach
myself, but which would perhaps be more properly offered
by the psychology instructor, would be Bibliomania. No
one at all would be allowed to enroll in this unless he were
really crazy about books. In the field of composition I
should offer Noble Writing. The enrollment in this would
be limited to future Nobel Prize winners in literature. (In
lean years possibly a few future Pulitzer Prize authors
would be accepted, too!)


Dr. Moody

Nobel Prize, is the stuff that dreams are made on.

I am sure, that as time goes on they will all become, if
not quite omniscient, at least better and better informed
as to the true treasures of the world, and more and more
able to contribute to and enjoy them. More I could not
wish for anyone.
One postscript: I hope that after the members of the
Class of 1955 have become alumni, they will continue to
demonstrate for the members of the faculty of CZJZ what
they learned here about one art, and I am now referring to
it in a real, not a facetious, sense. This is the art of Epis-
tolography.





DEAN OF MEN
Mr. James A. Lyons


Your graduation day may not be the carefree


you thought it would be.
you around that time.


occasion


Something is likely to happen to


For one thing, you begin to do some serious thinking


about the future.


You wonder what direction your


life is


going to take; where you will be ten years from now; and
whether you have found exactly the right career. You may
even have the uneasy feeling that graduation will, in effect,
cast you adrift on an uncharted sea.


Don't be too upset.


Mr. James A. Lyons


The chances are good that you will


end up just as thousands of other students have-in precisely
the kind of a job for which you are best suited. It is a char-
acteristic of youth, you know, to be willing to make changes.
If, after a fair trial, a job proves to be boring, or if working
conditions are not favorable, most young men and women


are ready and willing to switch to more appealing work, frequently in the same organi-
zation. The doctor who dislikes the hours of a general practitioner decides to be a
specialist with regular appointments; the accountant who hates office routine becomes
a credit investigator, or a member of the F. B. I:; the frustrated English teacher goes into
advertising; the unhappy stenographer gets married.


There are, it is true, a few unfortunate people who are so tied down by responsi-
bilities that they are not free to move about at will or to take chances; but even in the


face of such handicaps a truly dissatisfied

Another thing to remember is that no one is created for just one type of work.
All of us can and do find success and happiness in various kinds of gainful employment,
although in later years we are prone to think that an unkind fate has condemned us to
an unsuitable, unglamorous, or unproductive niche in the business or professional world.
The truth is, we are undoubtedly doing what subconsciously we most want to do.
Sometimes we hear people complain bitterly that they could nor pursue a profes-


sional career because they had no money.


That is almost always pure nonsense.

YEARS OF KNOWLEDGE
By Vaniece Roberts
Not too long ago, in high school, I would toil,
And to finish long assignments would burn the midnight oil,
For teachers took such great delight in making lessons long
Even then it seemed that I always did them wrong.

Graduation seemed a mirage, but at last arrived the day
When with jubilation all my books were put away-
The last theme had been written, the last page of history read,
And the knowledge of a thousand years rested on my weary head.

"There can't be too much more to learn: I've learned most of it before,
Was my one thought, as reluctantly I entered JC'c door.
I've heard about old Socrates, and what Mark Anthony said,
Why, the knowledge of a thousand years already rests upon my head.

But Dr. Moody's English class soon made me change my mind,
For the king of English I had learned was a hundred years behind.
As for Mr. Bowen's course, mostly it consisted
Of people and of places who I never knew existed.

How I struggled through my freshman year I'll never really know,
But if it were to do again, I just don't think I'd go.
And when this sophomore year is over, it truthfully can be said:
The knowledge of a thousand years will rest upon my weary head.
