Time, the essence of life! Time to live, to
hope, to pray, to grow. Time to make a pioneer
cabin school into asystem of twenty-one schools.
Our years have reached a hundred, our pupils
number six thousand, and our teachers three hun-
dred. These years have been a time of progress
since Harriet Gifford taught the three R's to
pioneer children in her brother's log cabin. Time
and change cannot be divorced. They have
wrought their handiwork in the Elgin public
schools. Youth, Fired with hope and desire,
hasn't basically changed since l85l. Through
one hundred years Elgin schools have tried to
meet the needs of youth as they were buffeted
by the ebb and flow of the world's ever-changing
tides. Communism and democracy face each
other at the crossroads. What choice will our
youth make?What questions will they ask? Does
education have the answer? Our schools today,
as in the past, endeavor to meet these needs of
youth, for as youth moves, so shall the progress
of the world.
