FOREWORD “The harvest is at hand”; the Class of ’49, having completed five years of preparation, is now ready to reap the golden grain—“graduation.” With high hopes for the future, the joys of new paths that lie before us, and perhaps also a sigh of regret for the past to be left behind, we pass on into the glorious sunlight of the future. This land of the future as it flashes before us on the screen is different from that of our parents. There will be new scientific advances such as television, already introduced, new social ideas, new scenes—in a word, a new world. We seek our “Eldorado”—our place in the sun—the golden horde of experience, learning, and human companionship. Some of us will become the “electricians” and “technicians” of this new world; others will gain the spotlights; the opportuni¬ ties are endless. But, wherever Fate may send us, whatever may befall us, the memories of those early days at Andrew Lewis will be with us. For a few brief moments let us concentrate on the television screen flashing before us familiar scenes of the past as well as those which are to come. May this ’49 Pioneer help us to relive the fun, the rare moments of success and achievement, and the familiar, unsuspectedly dear routine of our high school days.

DEDICATION To you who have brought immortal music to all of us, music that lingers everlastingly in every soul— To you whose untiring efforts in the past years have brought widespread fame for your wonderful work in the choir and in the band— To you who have always shown such great kindness, understanding, and friend¬ liness toward every one of us— It is to you, Mrs. Peery and Mr. Christensen, as a token of our love and deep appreciation for all you have done, that we, the staff of ’49, gratefully dedi¬ cate this edition of The Pioneer. -

To the Readers of the Pioneer—Greetings and Good Wishes: The broad purpose of the American high school is to promote the develop¬ ment of its students for effective personal and social living, and to help them be¬ come worthy members of a democratic society. To the accomplishment of this purpose Andrew Lewis High School dedicates itself anew. As the years pass and new groups of students come for instruction and guidance, the school shall attempt to do all that it can through its instructional program and extra-curricular offerings to promote the worth and dignity of each member who may become a part of the Andrew Lewis family. To the Class of ' 49, I extend congratulations! Collectively and individually this graduating class has made its contribution to the ideals which Andrew Lewis High School cherishes. In the years to come may each of you be as good a citizen in the nation as you have been a good citizen in your high school. Faithfully yours, E. B. Broadwater Principal
