What We Are Taking with Us from Andrew Lewis According to the calendar, tomorrow is Sunday, June 8, 1941. So far as national affairs are concerned this date has no special significance whatsoever. There is to be no world-wide celebra¬ tion tomorrow. All the churches throughout the country will proceed to worship in the customary manner without any unusual activities. In fact, tomorrow will be just another Sunday, a day that soon will be behind us. There is one group, however, for which tomorrow will have a special meaning. For tomorrow the present senior class, gathered here in this auditorium, will have become graduates of Andrew Lewis High School. We shall soon step over the threshold, never again to return to these halls as a class. The pages of our record books will be turned and perhaps forgotten, as the time rolls slowly by. We shall drift out from this institution to places both far and near, some to roads that are safe and well defined, and others to paths of high adventure. Whether or not we shall again gaze upon this building, the pride of one of the most beautiful communities in the entire state, no one can say. But though this class may soon be just a hazy recollection to others, we know that every single person in this group will always remember the experiences of the past four years at Andrew Lewis with fondest memories. As the end of our school life draws near, one begins to think back over the past, recalling some of the basic principles learned here. He remembers how our teachers stressed the fact that we should always take with us the desire or aspiration to strive for higher levels in our general living. How we must learn to use the knowledge gained here to the best advantage. And the importance of being able to step into the role of citizens of our country and conduct ourselves as such wisely and courageously. But instilling into a student a desire for higher levels does not necessarily mean vaulting ambition or lust for power. Ever since creation the aspiration to power and high position for itself alone has always meant disaster. It is so at present and will no doubt be so in the future. On the contrary, the desire for greater levels as learned in the high school means higher planes in the field of learning and service. In addition to the knowledge gained at Andrew Lewis, we also see the necessity of acquiring more knowledge. The quest for truth does not end at one special period but is a lifelong process. If the full benefit of this knowledge is to be received, moreover, it must Knowledged gained 44 }3«

be used practically in general living. To be able to apply learning to the vocation is an impending necessity, and to be able to choose interests and enjoyments for leisure time, long after having left the classroom, is a priceless talent, both of which we are taking with us from this institution. We shall soon step into the outside world, a world which is unfortunately now in a state of turmoil and unrest, being the battleground of the ideals of tyranny and freedom. It is not a new battle, however, and we should consider ourselves fortunate, on the other hand, at being given the opportunity to keep alive and predominant the principles which America has traditionally cherished. Some of us may become leaders in the political life of the nation, while others will be as equally important in advancing some great scientific project for mankind. Even though, however, the members of this class may be scattered to all corners of the globe they will always carry with them the memories of their high school career. Ever present in their minds will be the sorrows and joys, incidents and experiences, and friendships that may have an everlasting influence on their lives. Never to be forgotten are the class parties, trips, plays, lectures, athletic events, and numerous other highlights that have made lasting impressions on our minds. In addition to activities at school, life in the community has been influential and will continue to be so in directing what course we are to follow. The members of this class will carry with them a deep and abiding sense of the debt they owe to the leader of this school and the teachers who, by their untiring and loyal efforts, have guided us to this, the crowning point in our high school career. The contributions they have made to the forces that build our characters and direct our conduct, will last long and reach far out into the life we follow when we leave here. We wish to express to them our appreciation and gratitude for the service they gave us. No one can ever measure it. It is not an easy task to say goodby to a place such as this, but it will be harder to forget the times spent here. The Scottish bard, Thomas Moore, expressed this feeling well when he concluded his poem “Farewell.” “ Let Fate do her worst , there are relics of joy , Bright dreams of the past , which she cannot destroy; Which come in the night¬ time of sorrow and care , And bring back the features that joy used to wear. Long , long be my heart with such memones fill ' d! Like the vase , in which roses have once been distilled -—- You may break , you may shatter the vase , if you will , But the scent of the roses will hang round it still. " Yes, although tomorrow will be just another day— another Sabbath—for the rest of the world, it has a very definite significance for the Class of 1941. —David Thornton Applying learning to a vocation ■ 8 { 45 }■
