More important, it will instill in the student an awareness of the hazards he will encounter as f' . a pedestrian or driver. This course was started in Arnite in 1947 and is taught by Coach L. C. Catha. Hun- dreds of students have had driver education and this has decreased their accident average about T5'3fo. Insurance companies decrease insurance 10010 on pupils that have had driver education. INDUSTRIAL ART CLASS fs- Q Q fi MR. ROBERT RUSSELL, IR. Junior High Boys Instructor at Work 98 DUAL CONTROLS D.

I e IN MEMORIAM Among our most cherished memories of school days is our association with our friend, Carl Stafford. Carl was a quiet, unassuming boy, with a soft, sweet manner that endeared him to students and teachers alike. As he gained physical strength, he began to excel in competitive sports and would undoubtedly have been a real threat as full-back on the varsity football team. We remember Carl as a devout church member, una- shamed to openly acknowledge a deep spiritual life. We are grateful for this friend who asked little and gave much. Football was Carl's favorite sport. A very aggressive player, he was also a most dependable one. He knew and carried out his plays with exceptional ability, The finest tribute we can pay comes from a football buddy: "Best of all, he was fair and loyal." 5 REMEMBER Remember me when I am gone awayg Gone far away into the silent landg When you can no more hold me by the han Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterward remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.
