On the beautiful Autumn and Spring days, what delight to gather in groups on the campus with our friends for a little relaxation in the glorious sunshine! The electric bell sounds reminding us that it is time to make for our lockers to get our books to be on time for class. Fun is over for a while. This is tke Reference Room of the Library. No loafers need come here, only those who have reference work for their classes.

Stately and strong stands our Alma Mater, teaching us At Andrew Lewis we have been one large happy family, strength and fortitude. working together and playing together. Memories of many joyful experiences and sweet friendships will linger with us through life. Examination grades can be really important for they are recorded in the big book in the office for future reference. These students seem to realize this as they strive to do their very best. The boys have to dress in a hurry, for one must never be late for practice, or for class after gym.

The School Plant This school today is in reality a modern industrial plant. In this plant there is a system by which the students, faculty and administration are coordinated. In addition to the class-room activities the students obtain invaluable experience through the various club activities, which include the publishing of an $1,800 annual, a page in the Times-Register every week, the production of an operetta and a senior play every year, schedules of the football, baseball, and basket ball teams. There are modern classrooms, laboratories, typing rooms, a gymnasium, a library, offices, bookstore, auditorium, home economics rooms, and a modern industrial arts shop. It is well that we are thus equipped, for in the words of Alexander Pope, “ ’Tis education forms the common mind: Just as the twig is bent, the tree’s inclin’d.” This auditorium in which you are seated is modern, comfortable, and beautiful. It is used by the community as well as by the school. On the ground floor there is a cafeteria which serves daily the needs of over 800 students, thus contributing to the convenience and health of the community. The cafeteria is also used by local organizations for lunches and banquets. The playground belongs to the public as well as to the school. It gives a safe and pleasant place for the young people of Salem twelve months in every year. The lawn surrounding this beautiful building is another thing in which we take great pride. The shrubbery was given by the Salem Garden Club and other garden clubs of the community. Our teachers try hard to give us training in appreciation and care of the grass and shrubbery. Francis Bacon said, “Reading maketh a full man.” Our school gives every student an opportunity for filling his mind with golden thoughts from the best literature. In our library we have over 5500 volumes, giving material for reference and for entertainment. Here I wish to mention another department in our school which consists of a single man—he is the custodian of this plant. Mr. Voci is the man who sees that the building is heated in winter, that it is kept in repair, that the lawn is mowed, that the rooms are swept and the boards are washed and that the property is protected. Often he seems forgotten, yet we couldn’t get along without his faithful service. The nerve center of this vast organization is the office. I say vast because it is vast compared with the little red schoolhouse of McGuffey’s Reader days. Today, in this building the activities of over 1,500 people must be coordinated. The main business of this plant is the education of the students. It is well equipped for this work. There is a competent, experienced, well trained faculty. Instead of the 3 R’s that made up our grandparents’ curriculum, we now have French, Latin, Litera¬ ture, grammar, science, biology, chemistry, mathematics, history, civics, mechanical drawing, metal, wood and leather working, bookkeeping, typewriting, shorthand and many other subjects. 4 12 }
