End of The Trail
just a word in explanation of the art motif. Throughout the
the book is woven the history of Abilene. The division and sub-
division pages show incidents that have truly happened in the early
development of this city. Some of the verses illustrating each
incident. were taken from our West Texas poets: the others were
composed by our own students. The theme was selected in an effort
to express our appreciation for those who. by their untiring efforts
and sacrifices. have made it possible that we might better prepare
ourselves to perform the duties of life.
ln selecting the material in this year book. we have endeavored
to put into it the things that we thought you would like. We have
tried to please ourselves. and we hope that in pleasing ourselves.
we have pleased you. Some of the ideas we have entertained have
materialized: others have fallen by the wayside. If this FLASH-
LIGHT brings fond memories to mind in later years. we have
surely succeeded in our purpose. The student body sits in judg-
ment. It is our fondest hope that. to the hearts of the high school
students. this FL.-XSHLICHT will grow "sweeter as the years roll
We wish to express our sincere appreciation to Larry Chitten-
den, the poet ranchman. who so generously gave us permission to
use quotations taken from his Rant-li Verses. Our thanks are also
due to C. .-X. Cilluiray. who so kindly assisted us in getting in
touch with Mr. Chittenden.
We are grateful to J. Henry Phillips for his permission to use
selections from Cowboy Songs collected hy John A. Lomax and
published by the Macltfillian Company.
To you, the business men of Abilene who have helped us finan-
cially, we extend our most sincere thanks for your assistance and
we wish to assure every one. students and teachers. who have helped
us, that your aid was appreciated. To you. our elusive Staff. who
so ably assisted us during "rushitis" and at other times as well.
we extend congratulations.
The book is done. Wie fold our hands. sink hack into our
chairs. and look the world again straight in the face.
