He pays a high tribute to the
telephone operators and the hand
they lend in getting the firemen to
the fire. If a fireman does not call
in at once after the alarm is sound
ed, the operator calls him and tells
the-location of the fire. Of the
18 local firemen, an average of 12
answer every call.

In his time Kerley says he has
been to more than 500 fires and
generally average 30 a year. Last
year the fire department was called
out 60 times and to date this year
they have had 21 calls.
"The worse fire we have ever had
in the city limits in my time was
that of the Reeves building on

so hard to get at and our pump

Parents, teachers and friends:
My classmates have conferred
upon me the great honor of speak
ing the words that shall bid you
welcome here tonight. I am grate
ful to them for this mark of their
favor, but still, as I look around
upon your faces, so much more
clearly marked with lines of wis
dom and wider experiences than
ours may be for many years to
come, I cannot but feel that the
words of welcome should come
from you, yet it is we who are
passing out into your midst, we
who are joining you in the larger
school of progress outside these
doors, we who are entering into
your pursuits and pleasures, and
becoming one with you in the so
cial and business centers that
make up active life. So much of
our success there will depend, too,
upon the way in which you re
ceive us, and the spirit in which
you respond to our enthusiasm.
Is it not we, then, who should ask
for the glad hand of welcome?
Tonight marks a new epoch in
our lives. It is not the end of our
educational career, it is just the
beginning. For four years we have
been studying and preparing for
this day which we call commence
ment. It will be the commence-
l ment of many new experiences for
! all of us. Some of our group will
go to college, some will enter the
fields of business and industry,
while others will become home
makers. In whatever place we
find ourselves we pledge to you,
kind parents and friends, that we
will render the greatest service
possible which will be but a small
way of showing you our apprecia
tion of the investment you've
made in us.
During the four years here
many new vistas have been open
ed to us through the various
courses we've studied. We have
learned how to apply the knowl
edge we have gained, how to use
wisely our leisure time, how to be
come better members of the com
plex world about us, and how to
choose the vocations for which we
are best adapted. These are just a
few of the many things we have
As we leave here we realize
what all these experiences have
meant to us. They are founda
tion stones on which we will build
our lives. It is our desire as we
become members of the vast so
ciety of men and women that the
fundamental principles we have
learned here through us will be
reflected in the lives of those with
whom we come in contact.
So, as we welcome you tonight,
it is with a feeling of sincere ap
preciation and thanks for the op
portunities you have made possi
ble for us. We feel that we must
ask your forbearance and kindly
sympathy, and crave from each of
you as we step forth into your
midst, the warm handshake and
cordial smile that will assure as
of your joy at bidding us welcome.

Friends, Teachers, Classmates:
The world today is shadowed by

all the lights have gone out. But
. the light of hop is burning bright
ly in all our hearts, and it Is
guiding us into the future.
As we stand on the brink of
future life, it is our great privi
lege to know that we live in a dem
ocratic America, that affords for
us free and excellent guidance in
the principles of right living.. In
the four years that we have spent
in Waynesville High School our
parents, teachers,' and friends
have exerted every possible influ
ence to aid us in making the most
To the teachers who have been
so encouraging and patient in
guiding and advising us, we give
our heartiest thanks, for without
your help we could never have
reached this point.
And parents, you have never
ceased to give us the love that it
has taken to face the many prob
lems that have risen. No sacrifice
has been too great, on your part,
that we might have the many
things we have wanted and needed.
You have high hopes for our fu
ture. May we be worthy of you
Classmates we have worked
and played together for four years.
During this time we had our pe
riods of gloom and happiness, and
out of this has grown a sincere and
mutual friendship. In the years
that lie ahead may this feeling con
tinue, and may our lives reflect
the principles and guidance that
we have received at Waynesville
High School. In closing, may I
leave with you this verse:
Look for the best there is in life,
Seek to find the pure
Give to all a kindly word,
A smile, a bit of cheer
Don't forget the sorrow,
Make things a little brighter,
Then in life's tomorrow,
You'll find your heart is Jighter.
Good bye and Good luck!
