Jn IGolmtg iUpttinrg of " (Shtr § ky Plot” Ensign Gordon S. Maxwell of the Class of 1935 On Wednesday, April 16, 1941, Representative Clifton A. Woodrum paid an eloquent tribute on the floor of the House to the memory of Ensign Gordon Maxwell, U. S. Naval Reserve. Mr. Woodrum’s words are much more beautiful and fitting than any tribute which we might write, and express our feelings about Gordon so well that we quote from his address: “Mr. Speaker, in this fateful hour when our way of life is challenged, when horrid war is spreading over the earth like an ever-consuming flame and nearer and nearer our own shores, we are deeply impressed with the tragedy of it all. It is time for meditation and for prayer. Already many American homes have been grimly reminded that we must ever be ready to sacrifice, if need be, if our institutions of freedom are to survive. Today I am thinking particularly of one fine American home that has made the supreme sacrifice. February 24, 1941, Ensign Gordon S. Maxwell, age 23, of Roanoke, Virginia, aviation pilot, United States Naval Reserves, lost his life in line of duty when his plane crashed during hazardous dive-bombing practice near the naval base at San Diego. Gordon Maxwell typified the very finest in American youth. He was passionately fond of avia¬ tion. He loved to soar up into the heavens and wing his way amongst the snow-capped clouds. On one occasion, not long before his last flight, he ' wrote his mother, ‘If I ever crash in my plane, don’t sorrow for me, for I’ll still be flying up in the clouds, laughing down at you and waiting for you.’ Yes, Mr. Speaker, our Sky Pilot rides the airways today, bidding us have courage and faith and strength to meet the challenge to America—the blessed land for which he gave his life.” Our hearts are saddened at Gordon’s passing, but we are proud of his spirit, his ambitions, and ideals. Truly, they were ideals of which Andrew Lewis High School may be proud.
