Our Life at Andrew Lewis This is our school in our community of churches, theaters, clubs, eating places and businesses that help make up our life, our life at Andrew Lewis High School. Here we gather, coming from near and from far, to become one great unit; here we put forth our efforts and make our mistakes; here we gain our knowledge and discover our many faults; here we take our defeats and revel in our victories; here we share our joys and our sorrows, and cement them both with our friendships. This, our school, is the testing ground where we grow from bewildered children to poised and confident young men and women. Our faculty is the backbone of this school. Some of our teachers have come to Salem from the far corners of the United States to see that we start out in life right. O ther teachers have lived in Salem all their lives and can remember when they looked up to other teachers at Andrew Lewis for help. Though their hours are long and hard and the work is often thankless, they still keep going, and though probably they often throw up their hands in exasperation and feel like quitting, they do not. Year after year they continue to see studentswalk up the aisle with diplomas in their hands and tears of gratitude in their eyes. From the bottom of our hearts, Faculty, we thank you. We, the students, are the reason for Andrew Lewis High School. We start out in the eighth grade as inexperienced children. Year by year, we develop our talents and abilities, so that by the time we are seniors we feel we are ready to face life and whatever it may offer. Throughout our years as students we learn, together, how to take our de¬ feats as cheerfully as the victories; we learn to lend a helping hand for the pure joy of giving; instead of thinking only of ourselves, or pulling in separate directions, we learn to work together as a team. During the years we have spent together in classrooms and study halls, we have made many friends.

Here at Andrew Lewis, we are very proud of our Athletic Department. This department is the incentive for our school spirit. We stand, cheering, watching, as our football team makes a touchdown and a dds points to our score; as our basket¬ ball team rallies, after being behind, to win the game; as the wrestling team puts 4 }

all their strength together, striving for a victory over their opponents, and as the track team wins race after race, so that Andrew Lewis’s name will be on the top of the list. Who are these boys? The boy who scored the touchdown may sit next to you in English class; the boy who made the winning basket probably has the locker next to you; the boy who won his wrestling match could ride the same bus to school as you do; and the boy who beat all the rest in the 440 might be the next one to say “ hello” to you in the halls. They are part of Andrew Lewis and they keep the spirit of our school alive. We will never say die until there is no Andrew Lewis. There is opportunity for fun: there is the carefree, . g f»i mr social side of our school. Our dances, where girls float around in beautiful, colorful dresses and the boys look sleek and tantalizingly well-groomed, where music, smooth, rhythmic or jazzy, fills the air; our assemblies, bringing music, drama, fun and cheer; our home-coming, when the graduate stu¬ dents return to reminise, to see the Queen crowned, to enjoy the hop after the game, to celebrate victory or to accept defeat with a smile; our May Day, showing off the Beauties of our school; our trips to conventions, or other schools representing our Alma Mater and upholding Andrew Lewis, all of these add variety to Our Life at Andrew Lewis. Our organizations also add spice to our life at Andrew Lewis. They help us to learn to work together, to pool our ideas, to work for a common purpose. From our clubs at Andrew Lewis today, which offer a wide range of interests, will come the leaders of the world of tomorrow. They give us an opportunity to develop our interests in such fields as language, agriculture, homemaking, athletics, Christian work, professions, business, science, welfare, drama, me¬ chanics, and music. All these are a part of our life at Andrew Lewis. This is it. This is a year of our life at Andrew Lewis to cherish.
