Db. Ethel Percy Andrus, Principal To the Seniors (^T~^ OUR years ago Lincoln High School opened her gates and offered her Z ' hospitality to you. We hope that you found in her grounds and her •w halls not only a gracious happy home, and a group of congenial friends, kindly interested teachers, but also a challange to know and to extend yourself. Lincoln has been the only school you know. You take for granted its opportunities and your attendant responsibilities. Rarely do you remember that schools such as Lincoln are of recent birth. The Boston Town Record for April 23, 1635, reads, " Att a Generall meeting upon publique notice — it was then generally agreed upon that our brother, Philemon Pormot, shalbe intreated to become scholemaster, for the teaching and nourtering of children with us. " Three hundred years ago the men of the little settlement of Boston at the mouth of the Charles River before an American nation was dreamed of, before there was any wealth, before there was any material secui ' ity, out of their penury taxed themselves that their children might not grow up in ignorance. For the first time in history the pioneers turned to education before their position had been made secure. Thus was planted the seed of the public schools of Ame- rica that have become an inseparable part of our social organization grown into the heart of the people in every city and hamlet throughout the Union. In founding this first school the forefathers pointed the way for all the public schools that have come after, for they opened wide the door of the school-house to every man ' s son without distinction, for the first time per- haps in the story of education. The same purpose holds today as it did 300 years ago — to give to young people a knowledge of what has been and of what is, so that they may on this foundation build a better life and a freer state. Lincoln hopes that she has not failed in her trust. The manner of your living will be her test. ^^^~^ t- ' ^^i^-^ ' T ' ^?-^^^
