Dedication During the rush and hub-bub of our everyday life we do not realize what real sacrifice is. Maybe we think we do when we have to give up a trip or cannot get just exactly what we want, and have to take a substitute. Then we grumble and say something about why we have to send all our home supplies to other countries. That is what we call sacrifice.—But for a sacrifice that is real, one that really means the difference between happiness and an everlasting sorrow, the loss of a loved one is a good example. No one could ask for a richer gift. Life comes and goes in peace time as well as in war but life is speeded up in times like these. To these heroes who have given their most priceless possession, their life, and those who have been reported as missing in action, so that one mad fiend who tried to call the world his own could be stop¬ ped, we dedicate this volume.

Guardians And Guides The members of the faculty have the unusual distinction of being both the most popular and the most unpopular people in school. Deep down inside we love them dearly, but you would never suspect it to hear us talk. The same can probably be said of the faculty concerning us. If there are any tears to be shed by a few soft-hearted people, let them be shed for those most beset-upon people, the members of our faculty. Hounded day and night by dear little Us, they strive nobly to keep their equilibriums and their tempers. Those of you who haven’t tried being a teacher simply can’t imagine the horrible sensations which they are bound to experience at times. Practically none of the students ever agree with them, and even fewer of the parents. But we don’t mean half of what we say, and they must realize it, for somehow they manage to bear up under the strain. Without them we would be even more ignorant than we now are. They would be the first to tell you what a lamentable state that would be. As it is, we absorb very little of what they tell us—so little that they watch us in amaze¬ ment, no doubt wondering how supposedly civilized people can act that way. However, they profess to love their job. We don’t see how they can, but they do. Every day it’s the same—group after group of ignorant brats parade their ignorance before their long-suffering teachers. Every day those same teachers have new rules to enforce. Every day they have more printed forms to fill in. Every day it’s “Teecher, kin 1 go to my locker?” “Hey, kin I borrow a pencil.” If they can love teaching in the face of all this, they are indeed magnificent characters. Come to think of it, they are magnificent ,as much as we hate to admit it. The Office Oracles There is a certain small group of individuals here at Andrew Lewis for whom the student body manages to make life fairly miserable. These individuals are known collectively as The Office Staff. At the head of this wise and venerable group we find Miss Marion Jones, secretary to Mr. Kyle and general chief cook and bottle-washer. As her able assistants, Miss Marion has the office-practice girls, under the guidance of Miss Beulah Jones. These girls are preparing themselves for future positions by do¬ ing real office work, and doing it amazingly well. Working under this plan we have Fairy Abe, Virginia Wertz, Christine Carter, Aileen Beason, Kathleen Driscoll, Georgia Lane and Elinor Old. And it would certainly be unfair of us to omit Roscoe Kirby who is postman, banker, and general handy-man for the group. These very nice people most certainly must see all, hear all, and know all, for they are ever-present in time of trouble and seem always to know just what to do. For the exceptionally few mistakes they manage to make, they are (like the girl in the song) more to be pitied than censured. How they have managed to retain their sanity in the midst of all that bedlam is beyond us. Probably they have done it by some secret method known and practiced only by office workers. However they do it, they have our eternal thanks for managing, in so many ways, to keep us on the straight and narrow path for all these years. We would be quite lost without them. 6 }§ •
