Spring Spring is a fantasy in song. The gay lilting notes of daffodils as they wave in the breeze, the crisp accent of red and yellow tulips in a garden, the fresh green grass and the gentle patter of rain, all sing of spring. Spring clothes the earth in a bright new dress and gives to a tired, cold world a new song to sing. It always seems as though Spring will never arrive, but then, the first frogs appear and all at once spring is upon us. Birds sing a song that grows more beauti¬ ful with each passing year. The orchards burst forth in flowers, covering the green hills with great patches of pink and white and filling the air with an inde¬ scribable aroma. The invitation of the warm days to join their song is answered by every heart as spring fever begins to attack one and all. Our six hours at school suddenly seem much more like twelve and we find ourselves looking out of the window, day dream¬ ing. For the boys, the dream may be of a trout stream and the high swing of the line. The girls dream of new spring dresses and the fun that the reawakened hours will bring. Our teachers begin to realize that, on many days, even their best students are miles away in thought. Spring fever is a sure sign that the new season has arrived at Andrew Lewis. Our minds wander and we say with Milton “Come, and trip it, as you go, on the light, fantastic toe.” Another sign of spring is the preparation for the annual Easter pageant. The choirs busy themselves with learning special music that will complete the production which draws a large audience each year. The traditional May Dance comes and goes leaving behind memories of a beautiful evening. Over the festivities reigns the Queen of May with her court. The gym for a short while is alive with color and music. Sooner than it seems possible, the end of the school year is upon us. Senior day arrives with its confused mixture of joy and sorrow. The Seniors march out and leave their places to be filled by eager Juniors. The Annual is presented and the year recorded within its pages. Tests, those dark shadows in the lives of stu¬ dents, cause worried looks and frantic studying. The last day arrives and then the last night. The Class of 1953 file across the stage to receive their diplomas and then gather to sing, for the last time, the Alma Mater. Only now do they realize the true meaning of the words as they raise their voices in a final pledge: Oh Andrew Lewis, school adored, Our Alma Mater, dear; Fond memories of thee we’ll hold, Our hearts and minds to cheer. We’ll ever more thy name adore And honors to thee bring. And now thy sons and daughters true Loud praises to thee sing. { 10 2 }

Valentine Dance Below the hearts, our Senior President, Kenneth O’Bierne, dances with Dolly Iddings at the Valen¬ tine Dance. The Congo line winds around the gym growing longer all the time as more couples attach them¬ selves to the end. Beverly Roberts and Linda Lucas dance in the foreground next to Rob Thompson and Mary Smith, while the band plays a soft and dreamy melody. To the swaying rhythm of the Diplomats, Shirley Eubank and David Little lead the Congo line past the bandstand. Phylis Batton and Buck Wood, Snooky Elmore and Annette Garst sit on the grass covered step beneath the Valentine, while Bobby Neal and his date gaze wistfully into the Wishing Well. Frances Patton and her date smile happily at the camera while Charles Hawley whispers sweet nothings to his date. Eddie Talley eagerly awaits his turn at the punch bowl as Margie Rutrough looks anxiously up the line at Dickie Sossaman hoping he will leave a few cookies. Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Miller graciously give their assistance. Between dances refreshments are enjoyed in the candle-lighted cafeteria.
