Advice Superintendent John Binney then came to the microphone and said My allotted time for remarks tonight has caused me an un usually great amount of in decision and vacillation The debate going on concerned the inclusion of personal feelings but nearly everyone here Is per sonally Involved so may I suc clntly and sincerely offer some old advice to our graduates and I think it has relevance for all of us Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence As far as possible without sur render be on good terms with all persons Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others even the dull and ignorant they too have their story Avoid loud and aggressive persons they are vexations to the spirit If you compare yourself with others you may become vain and bitter for always there will be greater and lesser per sons than yourself Enjoy your achievements as wen as your plans Keep interested In your own career however humble it is a real possession in the chang ing fortunes of time Exercise caution In your business affairs for the world is full of trickery But let this not blind you to what virtue there Is many persons strive for high ideals and every where life is full of heroism Be yourself Especially do notfeign affection Neither be cynical about love for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as grass Take kind ly the counsel of the years gracefully surrendering the things of youth Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune But do not distress yourself with imaginings Many fears are born of fatigue and lone liness Beyond a wholesome dis cipline gentle with yourself You are a child of the universe no less than the and stars you have a rifht to be here And whether or not It U clear to you no doubt the uni verse Is unfolding as It should Therefore be at pet ce with God whatever you conceive Him to be and whatever your labors and aspirations In the noisy con fusion of life keep peace wHJj your souL With all its sham drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world Be careful Strive to be happy President Nixons Letter Principal Smith then read a letter addressed To the 1969 Graduating Class of Huntingdon High School from President Richard M Nixon on White House stationery You will discover as I did he said that each person must make his own exploration of the world make his own discover ies shape his own triumphs en dure his own tragedies Each of us is an explorer of himself of history of knowledge of the intricate and beautiful and derful varieties of experience You have my highest hope and best wishes Diplomas Presented The presentation of diplomas was an In dividual affair in charge of Richard J Endres president of the board of education and
