Page 2 Outstanding Seniors At Juniata Valley Honored War and peace Simple words basic words But they should be more meaningful for Americans on this Memorial Day than per haps any before it For they define the paradox of our national experience As a nation we were born in war and we have known much of it as our history has lengthened More we have becomeaccustomed to doing well in war From Lexington Gettysburg and Belleau Wood to Normandy Inchon and now Hamburger Hill Americans have ever fought well for cause and country We rejoice in their valor and suc cess Yet we are not a warlike people The warrior state has never been our goal Our deepest attachments have always been to the pursuits of peace And if we have rejoiced in victory the real reason has not been the material spoils that it might bring but because it has meant the return of peace All too often however we have taken the return of peace as a signal for national relaxation We have not pursued the national welfare and betterment in peace with the ardor and valor we have devoted to war On this day when above all others we pause to remem Special recognition was paid holiday than during last years to outstanding members of the longer holiday period Class ol 1969 at Juniata Valley High School on The council 550 to ber with pride and pain the tragic ultimate sacrifice all too many thousands have had to pay that we might do well in war it is fitting that we also pause to ponder our com mitment to our honored dead Its fulfillment requires more than flags flowers and memorials It requires that we dedicate ourselves to per fecting in peace the society their sacrifice has preserved with an ardor at least equal to theirs in preserving it Today possibly hopefully we may be about to be given another chance to fulfill that commitment The end of the road may be in sight in the most agonizing war in our history But if the road to peace is long and hard as we have so painfully learned anew with many bends and detours and bridges to cross the employment of peace to perfect the ideals of truth freedom and brotherhood which sustain us is no less difficult Yet this is our task and our commitment Our message for today was stated many years ago by Robert Browning He who did well in war just earns the right to begin doing well in peace Thursday even 650 persons would die in the ing The occasion was the annual holiday period extending from 6 banquet for seniors their tarn pjn local time Thursday until uies and friends held In the high midnight Sunday Last year 628 school cafetorium persons died
