THE PIONEER JUNIOR OFFICERS Mildred Atkinson. President Elmer Shaver. Vice President Gibson Maxwell. Secretary J. Willard Brubaker. Treasurer Junior Sentiments I N OUR new surroundings, three years ago, as Freshmen, we felt very insignifi¬ cant, but the congeniality of the teachers and pupils soon made us feel that we were really a part of the school. The road ahead looked long and hard, but through persistence on our part and untiring effort on the part of our teachers the year’s work was finished. Each year the work is more advanced and our success is measured by the zeal which we put into the task. We are fortunate to live in a period in which it is recognized that high grades are not the only indication of one’s education. It is very pleasant to be able to put up a perfect examination paper and receive a high mark, but a question of vastly more importance is—Do we have the proper appreciation of the subject? As someone has said, “The best reward is the sense of worthy achievement.” There is another important side to our school life, in addition to that of scholastic standing. We will be remembered by our schoolmates and teachers as they know us in school. If they know us to be rude, thoughtless, discourteous, or dishonest, impressions like these are not soon forgotten. If we are kind, thought¬ ful, courteous, and honorable, just so we shall be remembered. People may forgive us for these things, but they cannot forget them. So let us, as Seniors, apply ourselves more earnestly to our work; let us, in the words of Tennyson, “strive, seek, find, not yield”; but let us also keep in our hearts the prayer, “So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” If we endeavor to cultivate attributes like these, surely our Alma Mater will be proud of us when we go out as Seniors of ’38, for such ideals belong to the traditions which have been handed down from the early days of Salem High School. It is these which distinguish our beloved Andrew Lewis High School today. 4 36 U June Hoover
