ffxf THE SPECTRUM
What the rudder is to the ship, so is our principal to A. H. S. With
his hand on the wheel steering the school affairs away from the rocks
of failure, the waves of discontent, and the undertow of discord, Mr.
Victor M. Evans guides the good ship A. H. S. with precision attained only
by experienced "skippers". He has been principal of the Alexandria High
School for two and one-half years, coming here in March, 1930, from
the Oakland City High School. With the co-operation of the faculty, the
students, and the school officials, he has made these two years stand out
as harmonious, successful ones.
Mr. Evans was never too rushed to explain to some inexperienced
Freshman, or some more learned Senior, just what would be the best
route for him or her to choose to overcome some difficulty or problem.
Sophomores and Juniors also found Mr. Evans a real pal in times of in-
decision. Never too Worried to tell a witty joke, or too forgetful to
spring unexpected tests, or too busy to give advice, he has earned the
name of being a "swell fellow", which means a great deal in present
To the staff of the 1932 SPECTRUM Mr. Evans has been particularly
helpful. Realizing the needs of the staff for financial aid in every way
possible, he has shown his co-operation by giving us all the possible oppor-
tunities for raising funds for the publishing of the Annual.
And so we, the staff, take great pleasure in dedicating the 1932
SPECTRUM to our principal, Mr. V. M. Evans.

X TI-IE SPECTRUM f
We, the SPECTRUM staff of 1932, publish our SPECTRUM, know-
ing that you who read it will fully understand and appreciate just what
we are trying to portray to you. We Seniors, having finished four years
of high school, years full of laughter and tears, happiness and disappoint-
ments, are leaving behind us a book of memories that we hope you'll like.
As a true heritage, each one of us carries away with us a deep affection,
loyalty and gratitude to A. H. S., our Alma Mater.
As a theme for our book we have chosen that famous old city, Alex-
andria, Egypt. Our own Alexandria, "Not on the Nile, but just as worth
while", is equally famous in the hearts of every student in A. H. S.
Cleopatra's Needles, drawn as an outline of each of the division
pages in the SPECTRUM, were two magnificent Egyptian obelisks of
red syenite and originally stood before the Temple of the Sun at Heliop-
olis. They were removed to Alexandria in 14 B. C. One has been set up
in London, and the other in New York City. The latter is sixty-nine feet
thick at the base and weighs 200 tons. It rests on four bronze bases.
The sides bear inscriptions of Thothmes III. and Ramses II.
The Administration page portrays an Egyptian Pharaoh and his
tokens of authority, a whip and a staff.
An Egyptian drawing of a bird, said to be a god, makes up the division
page of Classes, and the Activities page pictures another queer-look-
Another drawing, that of the Features page, portrays the famous
lighthouse which stood oi the coast of the rocky island Pharos. The great
lighthouse, resting on a base 100 feet square and of great height, stood
for nearly 1,600 years and was regarded as one of the seven wonders of
the world. It was finally destroyed by an earthquake in the fourteenth
The last division page in the SPECTRUM, introducing Athletics,
shows an Egyptian drawing of a king.
And so we come to the end of our book of memories. We hope you
