Hi Everybody-

I Found this little Souvenir Booklet tonight while looking thru some old
Thought I would give the Alumni Directory a pause and let the people
from Woodcock Twp, Crawford Co., Pa. see some of their former
students. One Room School House various grades.

"The Foundation of Every State
is the Education of its Youth"
(second page)
I believe in boys & girls, the men and women of a great tomorrow;
that whatsoever the boy soweth the man shall reap. I believe in
curse of ignorance, in the efficacy of schools, in the dignity of
teaching, and in the joy of serving others. I believe in wisdom
as revealed in human lives as well as in the pages of a printed
book, in lessons taught, not so much by example, in ability
to work with the hands as well as to think with the head, in
everything that makes life large and lovely. I believe in beauty
in the schoolroom, in the home, in daily life and in out-of-doors.
I believe in laughter, in love, in faith, in all ideals and distant
hopes that lure us on. I believe that every hour of every day
we receive a just reward for all we are and all we do. I believe
in the present and its opportunities, in the future and its promises
and in the divine joy of living. "Edwin Osgood Grover"
