i - ! " ' 1 ;c f (s ,.rn. D uring this school year of 1936-37, some eleven hundred students have gone in and out of Andrew Lewis High School daily. As you have followed your various courses in science, music, shorthand, language, etc., as you have participated in the activi¬ ties of your choice, we be¬ lieve that, to each of you, life here has been a happy experience, a glorious ad¬ venture. Indeed, how could it be otherwise? The very atmosphere of the place seems to be filled with joy, the joy which comes from wholesome, right living. There is a pervading influence which we sometimes refer to as the “spirit of Andrew Lewis,” which all who enter seem to imbibe. The beautiful building, situated in historic Salem in the lovely valley of the Roanoke, is surrounded by towering mountain peaks in the distance. An administration considers carefully the present-day needs of young people. Faithful teachers, friendships and high moral standards— these and many other things contribute to this happy condition. It has been the aim of your Staff, in producing this 1937 Pioneer, to perpetuate in the mind of each of you an everlasting memory of your school life. We feel that a theme more fascinating to you could not be found, though we searched the annals of history. It is our hope that as you pause again and again, somewhere along the Road of Life, to turn these pages, that you may return to whatever task may be yours, inspired by having relived the happy days at Andrew Lewis.

Andrew Lewis Library T HE Andrew Lewis Library is an attractive room, carefully arranged in furnish¬ ings, bright with sunlight, and warm with the friendship of persons and books. Growing plants and flowers, seasonal posters, and book displays add to the beauty of the room. Between the entrance doors, neatly placed on the shelves, are the books pertaining to studies and general and specific reference works. Beneath the great windows, back of the charging desk, are the books of biography and fiction, which the students enjoy reading. One particularly notices the splendid behavior of the persons who study and read in the library. This, of course, makes any library attractive. A spirit of quiet, courtesy, and cooperation generally prevails. The students are trusted to uphold the library standards, and they show that they appreciate the trust. Truly, the Andrew Lewis Library is most appealing and worthy of pride. —Dorothy Smith

Dedication N OT because he is one of the out¬ standing members of our faculty; not because he has always taken a keen interest in the activities of our school; not because he has taught us to “know what we know”; not be¬ cause he exemplifies those things that are finest in character—although all these traits have endeared him to us— but because he has proved himself to be one of the students’ best friends, we, the Class of 1937, proudly dedicate this volume of The Pioneer to Mr. J.
