TO THE SENIORS “Time flies away, and cannot be restored.” — Virgil IME flies. How well we know the truth of that statement! What seemed to be an interminable number of years to us as an awed group of eighth graders has sped by until now as we read these words we are the Seniors of 1954. Our class has de¬ creased in size but we, as members of the class have grown in many ways, in con¬ fidence from shy children to confident young adults, in stature from awkward adolescence to erect manhood and graceful womanhood, in intelligence from unenlightened grade schoolers to well-informed citizens, in responsibility from dependence on others to relative independence. We h ave worked and played during these years, playing while we worked and, unknowingly learning while we played. Our school has guided us as we traveled the road to learning, boosting us over the high places and lending a helping hand when we stumbled and fell over some rough spots of education. Our teachers have been our friends or our enemies as we chose to make them. They have willingly given of their knowledge and experience so that we might learn more easily the lessons that will help us to become the happy, successful citizens that they have tried to make us. Our time here at Andrew Lewis will soon be only past history. We shall come back to visit, hoping to catch that feeling of belonging which now is ours, but it will elude us and we shall know that the school is no longer ours. We shall look with envy at those who still share a part of the school and hope that they will hold tightly to every minute while it is theirs. Time flies but as we travel the road of life, perhaps we shall pass and as we do, we shall proudly clasp hands, for the golden cord which binds classmates is strong and does not wear with time. Proudly we shall speak and proudly we shall continue down the road, singing as we go . . . “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.”

Classes “How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams With its illusions, aspirations, dreams! Book of Beginnings, Story without End, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend! . . . All possibilities are in its hands, No danger daunts it, and no foe withstands; In its sublime audacity of faith, ‘Be thou removed!’ it to the mountain saith, And with ambitious feet, secure and proud, Ascends the ladder leaning on a cloud.” —Longfellow

Emglits Cease not to learn until thou cease to live; Think that day lost wherein thou draw’st no letter To make thouself more learned, wiser, better. —Guy de Faur Pibrac, “Collection of Quatrains”
