Mr. Alexander, smiling even in his busiest moments. Mr. F. Carroll Alexander Assistant Principal Viewing the magnificence of the surrounding mountains, we are held spell¬ bound by this beautiful gift which God has given us. Their beauty is unending, growing more radiant each day. They are continually an inspiration to our lives, giving us faith to face the future. Their graceful peaks, scraping the blue skies, remind us that we have a higher peak to climb, that may lead to a better life. Our climb, like that of the pioneers who so courageously conquered heights and built our town, will not be an easy one but as each peak is conquered, the path will become less treacherous because we, too, will gain a knowledge of the ob¬ stacles before us and have faith in God. Mountain climbing could not be successful without the leadership of capable guides. These guides advise us on our journey and prevent our slipping or losing our foothold. Mr. Broadwater, Principal, acted as the head guide for our climb directing us over the treacherous path, aiding us in planning our futures, and helping us to attain higher goals. The assistant guide, Mr. Alexander, directed us toward higher goals in life as well as high school, assisting the student body in planning social functions for the school year, and making our climb more pleasant. We, eager as the mountain climber, could not attain the highest peak of our high school education without equipment and materials. Supply¬ ing these necessary tools, the whole m, s . Rut h Robins, office staff aided us in gaining a foothold, topping the first peak, Mrs - Wanda Hal1 and finally, reaching the highest peak, graduation.

E. B. Broadwater Principal Greetings: To all the students of Andrew Lewis, I bring you the greetings and good wishes of the entire teaching staff and their administrative officials. Each club, team, and organized group in school has as one of its recognized purposes and obligations the building of a worthy Andrew Lewis High tradition. No group has a finer opportunity for the furtherance of this purpose than the Annual Staff; no group in school works harder to add to our good traditions than do those who bring us each year the Pioneer. To the staff and its sponsors who again give us this volume to enjoy, I express the thanks of the school. Sincerely, 7 lo Discussing school policies with our Prin¬ cipal, Mr. Broadwater, are Sam Harvey, Senior Class President, Karen Johnston, Editor of the Pioneer, and Buddy Eakin, Student Body President. E. B. Broadwater, Principal

Establishing Self-Sufficiency . . . The path of life is like the steep and unknown way up a cliff which we, as mere beginners, are not yet equipped to tackle. To prepare us for this climb, to help make the way a bit easier, is the purpose of those who teach us. Perhaps the most direct help is the individual GUIDANCE given not only through Mrs. Smith’s office, but to a great extent, by all of the teachers. It is this unofficial and informal counseling that helps us to decide about such matters as going to college, what courses to take, what we are really interested in regarding a vacation, and in what direction our talents may lie. Through their work, we are aided in finding our eventual places in the world. Another source for this guidance is found in the LIBRARY. There are found not only the regular volumes which we use in ordinary day to day school work, but books, pamphlets and similar material describing the myriad trades and vocations. In the library we find what is most valuable, ideas. Through reading the thoughts of others, we are gradually led to think for ourselves. Through dictionaries, thesauruses, and other reference works, we are given the means of expressing these ideas in an intelligent and readable or listenable way. The future events of this world will be decided by just how seriously and how well we have prepared for the physical, as well as the spiri¬ tual aspects of this world. Part of this preparing for the future lies in a broadening of in¬ terests. There are many ways to broaden them, but perhaps most widespread is in the field of music. Mrs. Forrest M. Smith Guidance Mrs. Lake Newton Library Miss Mary Wright Library
