99 Seniors Presented Diplomas At Trade High



State Aide Is Speaker


    Ninety-nine seniors at Trade High were graduated this morning at exercises held at the E.J.Harrington School.
    Michael C. O'Donnell, principal of Trade, told graduates that in a machine technology, numerically control equipment is becoming a necessity.  He added that students in the machine shop course at the school are now taught how to program a job, punch the tap and operate a numerically control milling machine.
    O'Donnell added that offset printing was being taught in the printing course and that instruction in heli-arc welding calibration and instrumentation and mechanism were among the courses being offered students to enable them to meet the demands of modern technology.
    He commented that many improvements made at the school during the past year were done with federal funds made possible by the Vocational Bureau of the State Department of Education and with the approval of the Lynn School Committee.
    Guest speaker at the graduation was John Fitzgerald acting director of the Vocational Bureau of the State Department of Education.  He told graduates how fortunate they had been to have entrusted their lives into the hands of men who taught them how to use their hands skillfully.
    Speaking about keeping a job, be advised that everyone should give his employer 60 minutes of work each hour.  Only in the dictionary, Fitzgerald added, would anyone find success coming before work.
    He added that graduates should take enthusiasm and zeal with them to their jobs so that their work could be the best possible.  Doing work of the highest quality was reward enough and Fitzgerald emphasized the fact that the highest reward one could receive was not money but rather the development of character.
    Fitzgerald concluded by saying that each person has the best helping hand at the end of his own hand.
    Officers of the class are James G. Smith, president; Joseph A. Fountain, vice president; Paul F. Geaney, secretary; Robert W. McKenzie, treasure.
