THE PIONEER OF 1934 Senior Class History We, the Class of ’34, are pioneers. Just as the adventurous pioneers of old sailed from the Old World to the New, we have passed from the old Salem High School to the new Andrew Lewis High School. The voyage required four stormy years in which we learned to look to our captain, Air. House, and the crew, the Faculty, for support and guidance. Before our first semester was over and when we were getting used to the rigors of high school life, our high school was partially destroyed by fire, and so, for the rest of the school term, we went to school without a school, using College Avenue as our campus. As Sophomores we entered the renovated Salem High School in the fall of ’32. Despite the crowded condition of the high school and the knowledge that the word, “Sophomore,” meant “wise fools,” we worked faithfully on toward our ultimate goal, graduation. In ’33 we again entered the old building, but, as Juniors and with the vision of the new high school building ever before us to spur us on to greater efforts. Then in ’34 we entered the new Andrew Lewis building with modern equipment for study and recreation at our disposal and with the knowledge that we, as pioneers, would be the first class to graduate from Andrew Lewis. The last-minute rush is almost over, the announcements have been mailed, the Senior play is under way, and Commencement Day is just ahead, when we shall leave the care and guidance of Air. House and the Faculty to embark upon the seas of life. Alay we, the Class of ’34, realize our obligation to the Faculty and to the School to carry out the traditions and honor of Andrew Lewis as we journey through life, whatever our separate paths and ways may be. To you, the Class of ’35, we hand this flickering torch of knowledge, be it yours to hold high to guide those classes yet to come. { 36
