AVithout b e i n g arrogant, I dare say that each o n e of us has p ut to g o o d use the o p p o r t in iit ie s offered to us by F ranklin , its H e a d m a ste r a nd teachers.

I feel that b o t h students a n d teachers ha v e acted as wireless sets: the stu ­ d e n ts as the receivers, a n d the teachers as the transmitters. N o t at all times w ere the r e c e iv in g sets in g o o d order. S o m e t im e s r e c e p tio n was blurred by noise a n d o th e r dis tu rbances. B u t it was n o t always the fau lt o f the receivers, b e ­ cause the c o n d i t io n o f the transmitters too d e p e n d e d so m e tim e s o n weather, m o o d , or the like. N ev ertheless, I th in k that the receivers r e s p o n d e d c o n ­ g e n ia lly to the voices of the transmitters, refiecting in their absorptiv e capacity, their u n d e r s t a n d in g for spir itual g u i d a n c e a n d a p p r e c ia tio n for m oral le a d e r ­ ship.
