Over at last is the initial year for
some, the final year for others Whether
we were wide eyed sophomores, experienced
juniors, or all knowing seniors, we had
fun from the first assembly right down to
Award Day. some will soon close the double
doors behind them for the last time, while
others have a year or two in which some
ambitious dreams will be fulfilled. Here
we hold the memories of 1955 specially
This ole school
once knew us children,
once knew our strife
was home and comfort
As we fouvht the storms of li e
This ole school once rang with laughter
This ole school heard many shouts,
Now it trembles in the daylight,
when the students walk about.
This ole scnool
This ole school
A1n't gonna need this school no longer,
Ain't gonna need this school no more,
There's no need to fix the furnace
There's no need to heat the floor,
ihene's no need to oil the hinves
Nor to mend the wlndow panes,
H1n't gonna need this school no longer,
We're gettin' ready to meet the world
school is afraid of thund r,
school is afrald of storms
school groans and
night winds fling
school is gettin'
school is needin'
like us it's tuckered
And it just won't warm our
school is gettin' shaky,
school is gettin' old.
school lets in the rain,
school lets in the cold.
All the walls are gettin' chilly,
But it feels no fear or pain,
Cause it sees angels peeking,
Through those broken window panes

To be a member of a board of education in a local community is one of
the greatest responsibilities any citizen can receive. It offers an op-
portunity for outstanding and constructive public service. It requires
unselfish and intelligent devotion for the common good of all, A local
school board is almost the last bulwark marking community control over its
These days are of unusual significance to schools and therefore to
their policy makers---school boards. The increasing number of young
people who want and need formal education, and the constantly expanding
program of the school, make it more difficult to find money for plants,
personnel, and equipment. These considerations make the work of the
school board more difficult and of the utmost importance.
Some one has aptly said of the qualities school board members need:
'Knowledge alone is not enough. In addition the public expects of him the
wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, the meekness of Moses, the hu-
mility of a burned out electric bulb, the sagacity of Henry Ford, the
initiative of a jet propelled plane, and the common sense of Lincoln!n
To participate effectively in school policy-making also requires
understanding judicial competence, vision, courage, sincerity, unselfish-
ness, common sense and teamwork. The business of education is one of the
largest in many communities, More actual funds are involved, much of the
tax money is expended, and more of the public's interest is, or should be,
concentrated upon this important nindustryn.
In order that the best educational conditions mioht be attained
board members have laid aside personal feelings and opinions and have
worked with a vision of what their positions really mean in the success of
the school and the future of the children. And the results have been com-
mendable and without doubt worthy of public recognition. They generally
sacrifice valuable time and personal comforts without compensation in
order to be of service. Indeed often the are obli ed to see their best
most conscientious efforts criticized adversely, harshly and unjustly by
the unthinking public whom they so faithfully serve! But they have become
sworn servants of that same public and often expect such remuneration!
In short, school board members have evolved a wholesome, intelligent
manner of administration, commensurate with the inherent responsibilities
of their positions. Our debt to them is great: let us be thankful that it
is. They also serve, worthy of recognition!
