These inaniinate means can, however, show but a semblance of the glowing, fervent devo- tion to those ideals developed in Armstrong - High School-those ideals which build the healthy, happy, alert, and patriotic citizens our Alina Mater has produced and is produc- ing. XX THE SPIRIT it FIRVHSTRUIIG HCHHUIULEDGEIHEHT A WVe, the members of the Senior Class of 1943, deeply appreciate, and sincerely thank our principals, faculty members, parents, adver- tisers, and our many other friends, who have contributed of their means, their talents and their time to make this , our 1943 Commence- ment Edition of the "Spirit of Armstrong," a success. ...4- - L J D D To those heroic- sons and daughters of Armstrong now serving with the Arrned Forces this annual is respectfully dedicated. Because we, the IIICIIIIJCIZS of'ithefc1.g of 194-3, are'so fully cognizant of the sacrifices they are making ttrfprgserve and ex- tend democracy, it is with grateful, profound, and reverent re- cognition that we honor our hook by acknowledging through Y it, the honor brought our beloved Alma Mater by their distin- guished services.

TGWN SEND, Principal PRINCIPAUS lllESSAG'E The world is in the midst of turmoil and bloodshed because group welfare has been put ahead of the welfare of all mankind. There is but one cure for this conditiong and that is to put world citizenship above citizenship in any smaller group. Remember, 'The light that shineth the farthest away from home makes the brightest light at home." Seniors, if in spirit you will be citizens of the world, you will automatically be better citizens of any group in which you are a member. My advice to you, therefore, is "Be cosmopolitan in spirit," believe in and practice the doctrine of the brotherhood of man. .-7... 2.

After the first few days of becoming acquainted with the teachers and students, we set out to accomplish the task before us. During that first year we were inevitably given the name of Freshmen. As Sophomores we became interested in the activi- ties of the school. We joined the choir, Junior Red Cross, Girls' Conference, and other organizations con- nected with the school. Members of the class played instrumental parts in leading Armstrong to victory in sports. Linwood Scott was captain of the basketball team and Arthur Knight was an outstanding player. When we became Juniors we fairly burst with pride. Helen Washington, Rheba Tinsley and Mary Allen entered the French Tournament and won high honors. That year Linwood Scott was chosen captain of the football team and Alfred Brown, Joseph Johnson, Joseph Banian, and William Causie Estko were excel- lent players. We attended the various plays and parties given by organizations of the school and learned the fundamentals of social life. At the close of the year Emily jones was chosen President of the Girls' Con- ference. These accomplishments were typical of the graduating class of 1943. Then September, 1942, came and we were Seniors in all our glory. During the first term we elected Mr. George Peterson, Jr., and Mrs. Virginia Howell Brinkley as our sponsor and assistant-sponsor respec- tively. Other officers are: James Kennedy, President, Thomas Murray, Vice-Presidentg Mary Allen, Secre- taryg and Vivian Kenney, Treasurer. With Rheba Tinsley as the Hrst girl editor of The Spirit of Arm- strong we published one of the best papers ever pro- duced here. We also gave three one-act plays which proved to be a tremendous success. Anne Perry, Emily Jones, James Pittman and William Causie Estko potrayed the leading roles. Later in the year we gave one three- act play that proved to be as successful as our first dramatic ventures. In this play Anne Perry and Daniel Scott were superb. Della Shaw, Vivian Kenney and Ira Smith were also outstanding. The May Festival deviated from the usual King and Queen show for we presented "Miss America' and "Uncle Sam." June 9 marks the completion of our four inspiring years at Armstrong, but we have "Not Finished, just Begun." In the days to come Armstrong will point with pride to the deeds of the members of '43. RUTH Lawsow ...T K. -. THE SPIRIT RfllSTHlllllii OUR CREED A MAN is known by his beliefs, for, "As a man believeth, so is he." The Class of 1943, after much thought is ready to proclaim its creed. First, we believe in our beloved parents, who have toiled and sacrificed that we might achieve the goal of graduation. Second, we believe in our principal, Mr. W. W. Townsend, whose high standards and unselfish in- terest in us have made him a thoughtful advisor. Third, we believe in our teachers, for they have endeavored to develop in us initiative, individuality, and the desire for the better things in life. Fourth, we believe in ounsponsor, Mr. George Peterson, and assistant sponsor, Mrs. Virginia Brinkley, who have led us wisely and diligently through our problems and joys. Fifth, we believe in our fellow pupils, for it is through them that Armstrong has been, and will con- tinue to be, regarded as a top ranking school. Sixth, we believe in our country and its doctrines: Our country, in spite of the horrors of war, is con- tinuing to provide free education for all its youth, and is truly seeking to make the world a better place- for all men. Seventh, we believe in our armed forces, whose courage and daring are sources of inspiration, and whose sacrifices are uncomplainingly made. Eighth, we believe in ourselves, in our innate powers and in our ability to grow and develop, so that our parents, our school, and our country may be proud of us. We have tested our creed and are proud of our beliefs. THOMAS HINTON MURRAY MANTLE ORATION PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS, CLASSMATES, JUNIORS: I deem it a great honor and a most pleasing privi- lege to represent the Senior Class of 1943 in the sad duty of presenting the mantel to the junior Class. This mantle has been passed down through the ages. Beginning when Elijah passed his mantle to Elisha, it has represented sacred responsibilities. Only last year this mantle was draped on our most worthy shoulders. We cherished our beloved mantle and have seen that no stain of dishonor, no flaw of discontent has marred it. Since we received this mantle, much that we had not anticipated has come to pass, and we have taken on added responsibilities, but in spite of our manifold tasks we have not neglected our pro- found obligation to our adored cloak. We have worn this robe proudly and unseliishly for one whole year, and not once have we grown weary of its weight. We have held it on our young shoulders, and walked in such a way as not to snag, soil, or tatter its gracious folds. ,-4 Now we pass it on to you spotless and unblemished. Cherish it as we have, let industry and application be foremost among its endowments. We, the class of 1943, ask that you take this mantle in the spirit of love, patriotism, and sacrifice. May it be to you a mantle of charity endowing you with the spirit of fellowship and sympathetic understanding. We, the philosophical and sophistocated Seniors, have noticed with sorrow your laxity in performing some of your duties, and your careless attitude, and we know that it is an impossibility for you to become our equals. Nevertheless we are placing this mantle upon you, hoping that you will grasp some of the things for which this precious mantle stands, and so grow to fit it. Take this mantle, use it wisely, and guard well your sacred trust.

For the first time in the history of our school two persons have tied for the honor of class salutatorian-Miss jean McDonald and I. I have been chosen to speak the words that bid you welcome, but words are inadequate to express the deep sentiment in our hearts, so we simply say that we are grateful for your presence here. We hope that you will enjoy this presentation of our class exer- cises as much as we enjoy presenting it. Someone has written: "A poppy seed-it lies in the hand, a gain of dust, motionless, unlovelhy, dead. Yet think what it holds! The cool grey-green of upward- springing stalks and leaves, the compact calyx, studded with its hundreds of protecting hairs, and within, crumpled like a babyis hand, the exquisite, shining silk of gorgeous petals-sunset-rose, faint, misty white, bold, magnificent, scarlet-all this in an atom of dust. 19 Tonight we are like a poppy seed. Within us lies dormant every possibility that the future is able to unfold. For years we have been a carefully tended seedlingg now comes the time to push out from the tiny seed and- to grow outward into individual stalks in the full expression of our maturer lives. Gradua- tion is not the ending, but the beginningg we are not finished, we have just begun. The young hear maturer people say, "Youth doesn't have a chance." They charge that the youth of today is reckless, careless, and callousg that we have no re- spect for age or achievement. They say that we are only intent on our own pleasures, which are some- times reckless and shocking, and that we are driving straight to destruction. But, my friends, they are wrong. There is no need to waste tears over this generation. We, the youth of America, are probably the soberest, soundest, and most realistic lot of youngsters in this nation's history. Toughened by years of depression and war prepara- tion, we face the future with critical, appraising eyes, conscious of the hardships we are likely to encounter -but there is no fear. We have faith in democracy and its ability to outlive its enemies both at home and abroad. Where middle age and old age see cause for doubt and hesitancy, youth sees hope and promise and opportunity. We see new frontiers around us-new frontiers in government, conservation, and agricultureg new fron- tiers in aviation, television, and fabrics made of glassg new frontiers in electricity, air-conditioning, Diesel engines, and modern housing. The ever broadening fiield of science provides a factual, realistic basis for our unconquerable optimism. We find new frontiers in customs and traditions broken down, and in this, the tremendous opportunity to create. After the war, ours is the opportunity and the task to build a better world and to establish sounder principles of living. Based upon the principles of the Master Builder we must use this opportunity to set life on a higher plane. Morally, the ideals of youth are high. Religion is seldom regarded as a political issueg it is rather a matter of individual conviction. We accept without question the idealism and practicality of the Golden Rule. Apparently the experiences of the depression years have brought home the fundamental law of society: that we cannot prosper ourselves if we live so that others cannot prosper. Upon this principle we find that we must shoulder our responsibility of ex- tricating the world from its present crisis. This is our generation and, as the youth of today, we must either face these problems and solve them or lead the blind life of those driven by forces of which they are only dimly aware. We must take advantage of the excellent opportunities now. Now we must, and now we shall take our places in life. The future of the world rests in our hands and we shall go forward, ever striving to attain the goal which lies ahead. We thank our teachers and sponsors who have given us our start. We are indebted to our school and our country for this part of our education, and we will strive to bring records of achievement back to Arm- strong. Using the lesson taught in the "Chambered Nautilus" by Oliver Wendell Holmes, we say: "Build thee more stately mansions. oh my soul, As the swift seasons roll, Leave Ihy low vaulted past Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from Heaven. with ll dome more vast, Till thou. at length art free. Leaving thine outgrown shell by lifeis unresting sea."' MARY ALLEN Class Sflllllfllhfltlll -41-' 1 .haf THE SPIRIT 'ie nmsrnnnq SALUTATORY The Responsibility of Leadership PRINCIPALS, SPONSORS, TEACHERS, CLASSMATES, FRIENDS! A Leadership is the art of guiding or directing others in the attainment of a common end in such a manner as to secure their obedience, conlidcnce, respect, and loyal cooperation. Although the principles and prac- tice of leadership may be examined from a scientific standpoint, it is essentially an art, a living thing deal- ing with human nature, human emotions, and the higher appeal to the heart as well as to the mind. Leading the smallest units, or the largest groups of individuals in the attainment of any .common end, ,calls for cool and thoughtful leaders with a strong feeling of the great responsibility imposed upon them. They must be resolute and self-reliant in their deci- sions, energetic and insistent in the execution .of them, unperturbed by the appearance of what may be con- sidered unsurmountable difficulties, which they will inevitably meet. So often we hear young men and women deploring, almost in a state of pessimism, the lack of opportunity to lead, to utilize and develop the latent capabilities they feel they have, because the times have no possi- bilities, or because the day of the pioneers and of far frontiers has passed. There can be no justification for such a viewpoint. The horizon bounding the field of opportunity for present day self-development of the individual as a leader is as limitless today as it ever has beeng the opportunities for the growth of leadership are more numerous, more varied, and the call more urgent than ever before. In the small begin- nings of study in the class room, in work, or sport, or in social activities, lie the guides for self-instruction and self-training in the principles and practice of lead- ing others in the attainment of the end toward which their common efforts strive. Our schools, our universities, colleges, and similar institutions properly pride themselves as being schools for the training of leaders, leaders in thought, leaders in science, in politics, and in all social progress. Lead- ership is esscntial to any systematic human effort, Organization provides the framework within which the efforts of any group of individuals arc more efli- ciently directed toward the attainment of a common objective than they might otherwise be. The efficient accomplishment of a common undertaking by a group of individuals is made possible, or is facilitated by their organization. An essential element in that organi- zation is the leader, by whom the efforts of the indi- viduals are guided or directed toward the end sought. In any organized group one becomes the leader thereof through a conscious or unconscious acknowledgment by the others of his greater knowledge, greater ability, or his apparent, or demonstrated capacity to lead. Matthew Arnold wrote of the classical authors of antiquity: "It has been said that we should emulate rather than imitate them." This is no less true in the study of the art of leadership. Each of us has his own character, his own personality, merely to imitate the characteristics and manerisms of those who exhibit capability in leadership is to court failure. A monkey can imitate, savages have aped the actions of the civilized without the slightest conception of the mean- ing or purpose of what they do. Emulation requires reason, logic, and intelligence. Each one who aspires to leadership should be true to himself in developing his ability, striving for the end attained by those suc- cessful ones he seeks to emulate, rather than blind, un- thinking imitation of the means alone. F-42- THE SPIRIT ,K RIHSTRUIIG , Q SALUTATORY The Responsibility of Leadership What are the qualities a leader should possess? At- tempts have been made to list these and catalogue the characteristics which he should minimize or eliminate, but such listing often serves only to discourage the aspirant, because in summation, they seem to describe an unattainable ideal. However, a goal toward which to aim is necessary, if one is to shape his efforts in self- development so as to gain a satisfactory measure of accomplishment in preparing himself to lead, to guide, and to direct the efforts of the others in any field of common endeavor. The qualities of a leader may be separated into per- sonal characteristics and professional capabilities, they may be classed as physical, mental, and moral qualities related to the leader himself, and those related to the individuals whom he aspires to lead. Merely to enu- merate the desirable qualities of a leader would ac- complish very little. But a consideration of some of these qualities will serve to illustrate the characteris- tics which we should watch for in others and which we should strive to develop in ourselves in order to prepare ourselves to be better leaders. No quality is of greater importance than loyaEty. It is essential in both the leader and the follower, for it works both ways, and loyalty down is no less impor- tant than loyalty up. Loyalty begets loyalty, and an evident sense of devotion to the interests of his fol- lowers on the part of a leader is the assurance of faithful and willing cooperation upon their part. One possessed of the true spirit of loyalty submerges his own self-interests in the sea of greater endeavor in which all either sink or swim together. Sincerity of purpose, like loyalty, is soon trans- mitted to those whom he would lead. Sham, hypocrisy, and bluff are all- too readily unmasked, and he who would attempt to conceal his ignorance, or to alibi his mistakes will soon find himself, not only a: de- throned leader, but an outcast from the fellowship of his team-mates. Zealousness requires a conscientious willingness to go more than half-way in the solution of the tasks at hand. A sense of justice and determination to deal fairly and impartially with all are essential in any one who would control and lead others. The degree of respect, of admiration, and even affection with which their faith in him is measured to a very large measu-re is determined by his possession and exhibition of these qualities. A willingness to accept responsibility is the foremost trait of leadership. The tasks are never too great to the one who is ready and willing to accept the respon- sibility. Men will admire and follow boldness and even rashness if it appears to them to be justified, but they will soon falter and become undependable when the goal disappears, the course reveals itself as unrea- sonable, or the aim of their endeavors proves empty and fruitless. Real leadership is essential at all times, but the critical condition of the whole world today emphasizes the need of a greater and better leadership, the kind of leadership that I have attempted to define, if we can hope to gain the goals for which we strive. It is my sincerest hope that the members of this class, as well as those that will come after, will in the years to come prove to be true leaders by accepting the great responsibilities necessary for attaining their coveted ends.

Tomorrow, As WVe iiirTiSl1 It VVe1'e Today As we come to the conclusion of four most happy and momentous years, we find ourselves standing on the threshold of a new adventure. We seem to have a feeling almost impossible to express-one of grave solemnity mingled with a great eagerness. In the years gone by, we have grown to love our school dearly. Through guidance and through inspira- tions, wezve grown in wisdom and knowledge, and as youth, almost as men and women, we are prepared at the moment to face the tasks that are ahead of us. Of course this doesn't mean we feel we have completed our growth. We know we have only begun. The road before us is extended far, and we must be thoroughly prepared to make use, wisely, of every opportunity to increase our service and our ability to serve. If we are to have "Tomorrow,' as we wish it were today, we should try to adjust ourselves to the situation as it is, and work fervently toward that goal we have established as our aim. To reach the goal, some of the things necessary for its attainment may be enumer- ated. ' Underlying all that one may do are his thoughts. It is thinking that will determine our success-every- thing worthwhile must come as a result of good, clean, honest thoughts. We shall try hard to have no selfish thinking in our "Tomorrowf' This would be the greatest handicap in attaining our goal, it could keep it from being reached. In our world today, we are witnessing very inter- csteclly, the results of selhsh thoughts. There are those who think only of self-achievements---Awho have such little thoughts, who have such narrow views, and who have made such selfish plans that the life of the world in endangered. We must rid the world of this type of thinking- this cannot be done too soon. Because of our responsi- bility as youth, or rather, as American youth, we are going to toil long and earnestly to that immediate end. Many of our youth are already carrying responsibility, for they sacrifice their lives for their country. They are giving all. The rest of us must carry on to the utmost so that they will not have died in vain. Our dreams and visions must be enlarged. Our dreams and visions must be those of loyal people labor- ing arduously and unswervingly to achieve the bless- ings of a prosperous nation, of a free nation. We must recognize that we are commencing a new epoch in the history of mankind. And when we remem- ber our training-that which we have just completed -we shall attempt to clear the world of any fallacies that exist today. The deeds and tasks to be done will be numerous and large. But, as brothers, we shall share the burdens and accomplish the tasks. As free men and women we shall equally partake of responsibility if we will not be contemptible and narrow, seeking only self-gains. And we shall not shirk, for in our "Tomorrow," we must have initiative, a sense of duty, and a full as- sumption of all of our obligations. On graduating from high school we have developed our beliefs into a great creed. It seems that overnight we have realized the nobler aspects of life in a wider scope. Together we have sensed our creeds, believing that we have a bright future before us. We must strive always to uphold them. They shall be impenetrable by delusion and deceit. We must live as brothers-friendly each to everyone. Have no little group here-another there, but work ..45.. f , 1 jrne smmfr nmsrnunlg VALEDICTORY ' X .

But we are solemn because we shall stay no longer. at Armstrong--the one place where we've met from day to day through the years in comradeship and deepest friendship. We are much indebted to our teachers, parents, and other individuals who have long and unceasingly inspired us to the place where we now stand. We know it is impossible to repay them ingjust a short while, but remembering our class motto, e'Not finished, just begun," we shall attempt to repay through having our tomorrow as they wish it were today. Each year the graduating class voices its farewell to its Alma Mater. No one can be any more sincere, ever, than we are, when we say a grateful farewell to Armstrong-this school we've loved and cherished, deeply and profoundly. In parting at this time we are so very sad because of thoughts that we may no more meet again. The gloom is heavy-there seems only to be darkness. Oh! but we forget! We shall be gay! There is "Tomorrow."

Yours is to be a greater privilege of service than usually comes to those in your age group. Carry on! We shall depend upon you.

F E... . THE SPIRIT nmsrnnntg CLASS PROPHECY THE OTHER DAY I was sitting in the garden under a tree thinking of our Senior Class of '43. I thought of the four years we had spent together at dear old Armstrong High and I wondered what we should be doing in the future. Because I am not a prophet I knew I could only try to predict the futures of my classmates, but suddenly, as I sat there I felt someone touch me, although I saw nothing. A voice spoke say- ing, "I am the Future, I come to bring this book to you. Read it." I was startled. Nevertheless, I obeyed and as I read, I found that- The four' B'sg Doris Bailey, Emmeline Belle, Althea Boyde and Sarah Braxton will be waitresses in the "Eat and You Die Hotel" under the proprietorship of Reginald "Rip" Cumber.
