Out of This Age Conies...

FOREWORD In this atomic age we dream of rocketships shooting through space, of me¬ chanical devices whose sole power is found in a split atom, of our future homes which are to be managed merely by pressing the right button, of a marvelously happy world which is free from disease, trouble and war, and of other possibilities for the future which depend entirely upon the scientist and his use of the split atom. But even as we dream, we must also face the concrete realities of things that are happening at the present time. In facing these realities, we seniors present this edition of The Pioneer to all students of Andrew Lewis in the hope that they will be proud to own it and will cherish it forever. ’Neath its covers they will find the memories of their dear Alma Mater living in pictures and editorials. We, the Class of ’ 46 , are the first in five years that can leave Andrew Lewis knowing that we are entering a restless but peaceful world where there is a chance to make our dreams for the future come true. The peace that we are now enjoying was, to a certain extent, brought about by the atomic bomb and its devastating effects. As we seniors leave our Alma Mater, we are confronted by this new atomic age—by its vast problems as well as its unlimited promises for the future. For these reasons we have chosen the atomic age and the dreams it arouses within us as a theme for our annual. Now, as you turn this page and start your journey through The Pioneer, may you remember the joys you have experienced at Andrew Lewis. We sincerely hope that this annual will open for you a door through which you can see your teachers and classmates, bringing with them dreams of your school days, your clubs, the plays presented by your class, of Mr. Snapp’s “MacBeth,” of Mrs. Strickler’s poems, and of “Miss Annie’s” geometry. Then, finally, as you reach the end of your Pioneer may the memories come of that last day when lower classmen looked forward to a vacation followed by a few more years at Andrew Lewis, when juniors pictured themselves as dignified seniors, and when the seniors realized that their dreams had at last been fulfilled—they were receiving their diplomas and walking from the portals of Andrew Lewis to stand on the threshold of a new age—one in which dreams had become realities. Yes, we, the staff, will feel that ours is a job well done if you will open the covers of your Pioneer often and wander through its lanes of dreams and memories again and again in a wish to live once more your school days at Andrew Lewis. The Staff of ’46
