Now that the time has come for you, our seniors, numbering more than one hundred and fifty, to receive your diplomas and go forth to carve a niche for yourselves in the world, it is well for each to pause and consider the question, "what is my place in this world?" Those whose minds are full of fears and doubts, those whose plans were made by wrecked by evacuation must rebuild their castles stone by stone. It is easy to be pessimistic and to seemingly justify that pessimism, but I say to you today that you are to be envied. You are beginning your career on the threshold of a new era. The whole world will see tremendous changes within the next ten years. The end of the war will see the beginning of new social and economic orders. Many new and improved industries will require thousands of workers. The hungry, war torn world must be clothed and fed. We are due to see the most tremendous changes and experiences, the greatest demand for skilled labor and professional workers of all kinds that the world has ever known. Are you ready to do your part in this world?
