Our Noble Custodians Probably the one person who would be most missed if he should leave us is our building custodian, Mr. Voci. He and his helpers linger long after our day’s work is done in order that our building may be clean and orderly for the next day. Have you ever wondered what became of that wad of paper you stuffed in a desk, expecting to use it for spit-balls the next day ? Well, Mr. Voci is “the man what done it,” and you’d better thank him for it, too. You might have gotten kicked out of school, had you been allowed to carry ont your plans. Have you ever wondered who erased that picture you drew on the board—the one you for¬ got to erase before leaving school ? Have you ever spent half the night worrying about Teacher seeing it the next morning, only to discover it gone when you came back the next day? Here again, Mr. Voci (or one of his boys) has prob¬ ably saved you from certain disgrace. He’s the fellow who warms the building on cold days and coots it on warm days. He and the boys, assisted by Mrs. Wertz and her group, sweep the halls after school and see that things are locked up. More often than not they have to return at night to open up and clean up for some program presented by the town or school So you see, it’s practically a twenty-four hour job. On days when Mr. Voci is absent, everything seems to go wrong and no one knows just what to do. Every lock in the building appears to be stuck, the heat¬ ing system goes haywire, and pencil -sharpeners refuse to sharpen. For all the above-mentioned reasons and many more, we extend to Mr. Voci and his helpers all the gratitude and respect which is due them. Please never leave us. Cafeteria Capers Under the careful sponsorship of Miss Annie McConkey, we daily enjoy the privilege of partaking of Mrs. Bradley’s luscious morsels in the cafeteria. If you don’t think Mrs. Bradley and her helpers have a hard job, just try taking over for a day and see what happens to you. Mrs. Bradley, with her staff of cooks and student assistants, manages some¬ how to please everyone day after day, and this is no mean accomplishment. Miss Annie and her monitors change money for us and help to keep order and leave us with nothing to do but eat and enjoy ourselves. The cafeteria is one place where a visitor will never come upon a spirit of gloom. It seems to have an almost miraculous effect on our dispositions. A bad disposition doesn’t hold out long amid the friendly laughter and pleasant at¬ mosphere of the cafeteria, for after all, it’s there that we participate in our favorite pastime—eating. The food is good and it doesn’t cost much, which is a miracle in itself. But when you consider that there is always enough to go around, the situation becomes almost unbelievable. Wartime has naturally wrought hardships, but somehow they have been met and conquered. For good management, good food, and a happy atmosphere, we owe our cafeteria folks a vote of thanks. We herewith extend that vote, saying as we do it, “Carry on!”

Not so many boys, perhaps, and a general air of uncertainty among the older boys, but school life has continued as usual with as few disturbances as possible under the circumstances. Various drives for the purpose of selling War Bonds, collecting scrap paper, metal, and the like have helped to bring the war home to us. Every student has been given an opportunity to contribute in some tangible way toward the win¬ ning of the war. The Federal Government has, of course, had something to say concerning our physical education and health programs. Every girl and boy, unless handi¬ capped in some way, is now required to take gym work every day. Health lec¬ tures are given in the home rooms and there has been a general emphasis on health in all the classes. The importance of good nutrition has been kept in the foreground in the Home Economics classes, along with courses in First Aid and Home Nursing. These are the visible changes in our school life. Of course there have been individual changes in the lives of all the people connected with, the school. The majority of us have friends or relatives in the service. Our seemingly care¬ free laughter more often than not covers a deep concern for the well-being of some loved one. A few days have been more quiet than usual, when we have received news of the loss of some former student or class-mate. At times some of us have appeared a little absent-minded, perhaps from wondering about the letter that didn’t come. There is no phase of American life which can remain unaffected by the war, and the schools are no exception. However, the changes that have taken place here have come gradually and without any great fuss or so-called “flag-waving.” We have accepted the inevitable calmly and attempted to do our job well. This we shall continue to do until other changes come about—the changes which will mean the return of our peaceful American way of life—the life which is our heritage and our responsibility. 4 12
