spirit was still there and going strong, every- thing was growing, developing like a new build- ing upon its foundations. The roaring twenties zoomed in and brought glory on the sports field as well as on the academic front. lt was not only a matter of the quality of the student attending the school but also the standards of the school in the making of the student. World War I had come, and Davis students W-on a reputation for doing their part. Thirty former students willingly and unselfishly gave their lives. Meanwhile other alumni had distinguished themselves in professions and jobsg others went on to college and became great in their own way. Through the changes in building, prin- cipals, teachers, and students, through the de- pression years, and on to the present, Davis has given a good account of herself. Davis is rolling on. In the forties, during World War ll, every- one in the school put his shoulder to the wheel. Many seniors enlisted and one hundred eleven Davis heroes gave Htheir last full measure of devotionf' Those who could not fight for their country bought and sold war bonds, and Davis' sales topped those of every other school in the 20 area. lt has always been a worthwhile tradition here for every student to support his fellow schoolmates. And Davis continues to blaze new trails. .lust last year after-school dances were started, and this year a success is being made of the school store, our football team slaughtered New Rochelle, a team which was unscored upon until it played ours. The Dramatic Society presented great plays and the 64l'li-News" continued to win top journalistic honors. But if you should stop to listen, you can plainly hear another debate in full swing-Shall we build a new school? Some fifty odd years ago Mt. Vernon heard the same cries. How will she react this time? Will she come to the aid of our education system, which in the past has pro- duced some of the leaders in today's world? To mention just a few of the many the staff has learned of, there are a national authority on city planning, a reporter covering the Yalta Con- ference, a chemist awarded one thousand dollars by DuPont for research in medicine, a foreign correspondent for one of the country's leading newspapers, several important educators and gov- ernment officials, and an archeologist for the Museum of Natural History who has made sig- nificant explorations.
