For more than thirty years graduating
classes have endeavored to publish an annual
reflecting the activities and spirit of the stu-
dent body. This year the staff has striven to
carry on that tradition. We hope that in future
years the student will find within these pages
a true Mirror reflecting memories of high
In times like these, when nerves are heavily
taxed, things of a lighter nature are priceless
cures for overworked minds and bodies. The
staff has attemped to make the 1945 Mirror
one of those bright spots amid less agreeable
instances of an extraordinary period.
Instead of looking back longingly, or veiw-
ing the present with alarm, let us move our
ideals forward to times when the "Mirror"
can once again be published on a permanent
So to this and every forthcoming grad-
uating class with genuine, cherished pleasure
this 1945 "Mirror" is proudly dedicated.

To the Students of y igh School:
I wi h
s to commend you for the fine spirit you have shown
during this year and to suggest that you continue to grow
up in the normal way of life. Some work - some play, some
time in School - some time at home, some time in making
mistakes - some time in making amends, some time standing
still - some time Willing progress.
the Arkansas Cit H'
I marvel at the progress pupils in high school make. Hero
you are no longer little children, yet are not adults. You
grow into young men and young women who are ready to tackle
l:l.fe and its responsibilities. You assume obligations with
e confidence that cannot be shaken. In war and in peace
you keep the faith, in adversity you keep your chins u
in success you are modest.
So long as the American High School can have the youth of
America, our country will be great and strong.
My wish to you is ma
, y your steps never falt
E H We QW,
er, may your
quail, may you always look to the future and
may your future always be bright.

Students of the Senior High School:
You are deserving of hearty commenda-
tion for the magnificent manner in which you,
through your own volition, gave financial
aid to the Mirror staff in its effort to meet
the increased costs of publishing the l945
The Mirror is an important means of
perpetuating the tradition of our beloved
school. It records your acts as you appear
in the many and varied school activities
during the happy, or perhaps the happiest,
f f our lives Such a book will be a
days o y .
source of inspiration and pleasant memories
in the years tp come.
1 believe you realized these things,
and because you did, you have given your sup
t unstintingly to the Mirror which is
itself one of the great traditions of the
S h l.
