I Salem High School, since its beginning in 1900, has represented that which is highest, noblest, and best in ideals and in scholarship. Andrew Lewis High School has gone forward, holding out to you the same ideals—high standards of scholarship and noble principles of character. Those who have been your instructors within these portals have desired to equip you with knowledge, a knowledge which will enable you to discern the truth from that which is false and worthless; they have endeavored to guide you in making wise decisions for yourselves. It is the sincere hope of The Pioneer staff of 1941 that, in years to come, as you turn back the pages of your life here at Andrew Lewis, this book may remind you that knowledge is power and that the world has great need of the power which comes from knowledge and truth. In a world which is sick today, because in some parts of it so much power has fallen into the hands of some who seem utterly unfitted for leadership and whose aims seem to be the destruction of civilization, the need for leadership of a different type where there is vast knowledge, wisdom, and character, becomes paramount. The staff, therefore, feel that they could leave with you no better thought than to remind you that scholarship may be of great value to you in your future life. Your Alma Mater has started you along the path of knowledge and right thinking. Continue your education, if possible, for it may be of more value to you than any of us now realize in the changing world of the present. If you cannot pursue your learning further, remember that Andrew Lewis and those who have gone from Salem High School, before you, are looking to you to uphold the ideals which have been given you, wherever your place in the world may be. At the right is a picture of the cover of the first Salem High School year¬ book, “The Aeroplane” of 1910; also, a reproduction of the Dedication page from that book. Note, too, the first Salem High School Senior Pin. We are grateful to Mrs. Roland Cook for furnishing us with this pin, and other pictures and information regarding the Class of 1900. Mrs. Cook tells us that the cost of this pin was fifty cents, and that she remembers that there was much discussion among the members of the class as to whether they should have a pin, even at this price. The class colors were silver and purple. The pin carries purple letters on silver. It was some years later that the Senior Class established the precedent of pur¬ chasing Class Rings. The 1941 class had their choice of the beautiful pin or ring, pictured also in the cut, at the right.

The Shop, where we have been trained to make many beautiful and useful things with our hands. Through this portal we have entered the Hall of Learning, day after day. Through the spacious Lewis cor- ridors we have pursued our various ways, pausing often between classes for a pleasant moment to chat with classmates. And how familiar this doorway through which we have passed to attend to some matter of routine, or perhaps to seek some kindly counsel from the genial gentleman, our principal, who inhabits the in¬ ner office beyond.

Mr. and Mrs. Roland E. Cook Mrs. Cook Mr. Cook The above portraits were made in 1901 just after Mrs. Cook’s graduation from Salem High School. Mr. Cook be¬ came Superintendent of Roa¬ noke Count}- Schools five years later. To the ideals and ambitions of all those who have worthily preceded us in the history of Salem High School, we dedicate this thirty-first edition of the yearbook, The Pioneer. We appreciate the ideals which they have given us to follow, and we of Andrew Lewis High School have wished to follow them worthily. Especially, do we wish to pay tribute in this edition to our beloved Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Roland E. Cook, and to his admirable wife, Mrs. Ella Bullard Cook. We feel that their ideals exemplify the ideals of Salem High School and of Andrew Lewis High School. Mr. Cook, himself a scholar,, has labored to maintain a high standard of scholarship in the schools of Roanoke County during the thirty-five years of his superintendency. For this and particularly, for his ambitions and ideals in the erection and development of our own beautiful and modern Andrew Lewis High School, we are deeply appre¬ ciative. Mrs. Cook, a graduate of the first class of 1900 of Salem High School and a very charming lady, has ever been interested in the progress of our school. We are grateful to her for the ideals which she, as a graduate of the Class of 1900, has demonstrated in the beautiful example which she has given us. We take pleasure in expressing our appreciation, in this small way, to Mr. and Mrs. Cook, and to all who have had a part in establishing the ideals of our Alma Mater.
