This article may be entitled, "Basis for Happi
ness." Outlined here are at least five fundamentals
necessary for happiness.- Your general outlook up
on life is dependent upon the amount of happiness
you experience. You should begin early in your
school life to develop a proper basis for happiness,
but it is never too late to start ; many adults could
use the same basis.
The first fundamental of happiness is a success
ful vocational life, not necessarily as measured in
dollars and cents, but in the sense of something
worthwhile accomplished. A failing business or ca
reer involves financial worries and uncertainities,
but if you are accomplishing something toward a def
inite goal you find greater satisfaction and happi
ness. You have only to observe the students around
you to learn that it is those doing the best work who
are the most satisfied.
A second fundamental of happiness is a faith in
the world about you. It is very difficult to be skep
tical and critical and be happy. The skeptic is no
more able to polve the things he doubts and criticizes
than the person who does not understand but who
does accept things as they are and tries to adjust
his life accordingly. Therefore, do not criticize and
complain without trying to improve things which
displease you at the same time.
The third fundamental of happiness is friends.
You like to talk with friends, you enjoy your leisure
time with friends, you exchange ideas with friends,
you do things with friends, and you work with
friends. These associations are pleasing to you and
you naturally find much happiness in them. You
can cultivate friends by being courteous, loyal, trust
ing and of clean mind. These things make up your
attitude. If you improve your attitude you will im
prove your friendships.
Health is the fourth fundamental. Young people
should learn to conserve their health by proper food,
plenty of sleep, and clean habits. Good health enables
you to do your work, to associate freely with others ;
it enables you to enjoy your hobbies, and it enables
you to feel that you are like all others and not singled
out with some special burden to carry.
Correct thinking is the fifth fundamental of
happiness. All of us indulge in positive or negative
thinking. Positive thinking is creative, constructive,
and upbuilding, while negative thinking is destruct
ive and harmful. Positive thinking reflects itself in
courage, confidence, and faith. This is the thinking
of all active worthwhile men. Negative thinking re
flects itself in doubt, fear, and worry. How many
times have you heard people gossip about your
school or about individuals you knew, and all the
time you knew that the gossip was not true or par
tially true? This is negative and destructive think
ing, it is degrading and harmful.
Your thinking will influence your entire outlook
upon life. If you think about the unknown results of
every possibility, you will be in continual difficulty,
You will reduce your possibilities of success because
of self-pity, nervousness, and pessimism. On the oth
er hand, if you think about the facts as they are, and
the possible success which you may have through
your own efforts, you will be more optimistic, ener
getic and happy.
Discipline your thoughts. If you are a negative
thinker, STOP being one. You have all, no doubt,
heard the song, "Accentuate the Positive;" in other
words, be a positive thinker and doer!

This summer he plans to do
more work on it.' Among the
things he wants to do is to do
mure body work on it and to
paint it baby blue. He also
wants to redo the panels on
the inside also. Well, good luck
on your little project, Phil.
E.P.-
ELVIS, my hero, my sun.
My bright star,
Though others may mock you,
I know what you are.
And I love your pink cars,
And the clothes that you wear,
The sound of your voice,
And your long greasy hair.
I shriek when you shimmy,
Or just scratch and wiggle,
I die when you wink.
And just flip when you jiggle.
But your singing, dear ELVIS,
Comes floating to me,
Like an ancient fog horn,
On a wild roaring sea.
I'll send you a teddy bear,
All of your cwn,
To sleep v,th, to talk to.
When you are alone,
The army can't have you,
I won't let you go,
'Cc.use I wt,nt you, I need you.
And I love you so.
Though adults criticize you, ,
I still shout your praise,
'Cause a million teenagers,
jusl love your odd ways.
All this I've been saying,
Is not actually true,
'Cause I really can't stand him
at all,
Can you?
