E, the Class of 1946, respectfully ded-
icate this book to our First Assistant -
n Superintendent, Dr. Garnet C. Wilkinson,
with the thought that it may convey'to him
some of our profound admiration for his un-
failing guidance and untiring efforts in be-
half of Negro education in the District of
Columbia for the past twenty-five years. Q

Foreword , , ,
E, The Class of 1946, hope that you will enjoy this issue of the RE-
FLECTOR, as much as those of years before. We reflect through
the pages of this volume those days of responsibility in the service
of the school we love.
We have tried to describe the significant events of our school days at
Armstrong, to picture the students, the spirit and life of our class, and to
awaken, perhaps, the wistful tenderness of cherished memories.
If in time to come, the review of these pages will serve as inspiration and
bring to mind rernembrances of our school days, if this record of our efforts
will be the background of a picture of memories, then our goal will be
achieved, and we shall be content.
WILLIAM C. BROWNE,

History of the Class of '46 , ,
I want to draw a picture of the class of '46, but I am not an artist. I might
paint the picture, but I am not a painter-except when it comes to my own face.
Nevertheless, the canvas, oils, brush, and all the facilities for doing the job
are at my disposal. Hence, I shall attempt not one but three portraits of the
My first canvas begins with September 1943. We see five hundred and
seventy-nine bright-eyed students enrolling in high school for the first time.
How eager cmd happy their faces are! But if one is a deep observer he can
see that something overshadows that almost complete enthusiasm. Yes-a
war! Even though young-not more than fifteen or sixteen-still they feel
the effects of the war. Many are participating in the various war time activi-
ties. They go "all-out" for the bond drives. Some are doing outstanding
work in the various school clubs. Carlene Greene represents the Advisory?
Councilg Leroy Foster, the Cadet Corps, Iames McPhail, Choral Club, Marian
Fowler, the Honor Society, Helen Williams, Louise lones, Rosa Means, Girl
Scout Organization. There are so many outstanding students in the other
clubs that the canvas cannot quite hold them all. Merry faces are peeping
out of the comers. They reflect the fun they are having at the new girls'
party given by the Excelsior Circle. Yes, in spite of a war, these young spirits
can not be kept down. Thus, the first portrait is completed all too soon. The
time may have been fleeting, but the impressions and fun the class of '46
had their sophomore year are indelibly imprinted on their minds.
The second portrait presents the same class as juniors. The spotlight in
the portrait is thrown on Marcel Couze and Marian Fowler, winners of the
Howard award. After having spent one complete year at high school, the
Class of '46 is better able to understand the true significance of a high school
education. They have a new purpose and a new outlook on school life. So
ends the junior year and the second portrait.
The final portrait of the same boys and girls who saw the complete war
years in high school is a touching one. The portrait has a number of new'
faces. These faces are a little older than the average senior's, but the differ-
ence is not too apparent. These are veterans who have come back to com-
plete their high school education. Some of the veterans are George Taylor,
the Third, Frank Cozzens, Claude B. Allen, Iohn W. Burns, Malcolm Tillett and
Charles Hooper. George Taylor did splendid work in the music field while in
the Army. In the foreground are the members of the Honor Society. They
are Roscoe Thomas, Marcel Couze and Mary Leake. Looking closely we see
Gwendolyn Beasley and Laura Gambrell, the stars of "Katinka." Near them
are other outstanding members of the cast. These are Iames Bradford, Iune
Norford, and Iames McPhail. Beatrice Woolfork also has a prominent position,
for she was "Miss Armstrong." If this final portrait could speak, it would tell
Chains are not always formed by materials,
Sometimes they are formed in the abstract,
This is the chain built of learning,
That time keeps forever intact.
This chain has culminated between the years,
Growing both steadfast and true,
For the most important years of our life,
We spent them in leaming from you.
Each little link stands for something,
Every day being encouraged anew,
Is it no wonder that we feel blessed:
When, Armstrong, we had you.
-Mary Portia Leake.

Prophecy of the Class of '46 , .
Graduation was over, school was closed, and the vacation had just started.
I had decided to enter the Armed Service for a few years. I enlisted and likedg
it very well, so after my first 3 years were over, I enlisted for three more. After
those three were over, I soon enlisted for three more. I thought after those three
were over, that I had enough of Army life and would become a civilian. I
was discharged and returned to Washington. '
As soon as I had retumed, I tried to look up my school chums. This was
a hard job. Most of them had started businesses of their own. So I though
I would read the daily paper. To my surprise, I saw many articles concerning
my school mates.
The headlines read "United Nations Gets New Headquarters." Under this
I saw the names of Claude Ford and Leonard Ray, architects, who had drawn
the plans for this new establishment. I also noticed that they had drawn
plans for many other prominent monuments and buildings.
After I read this lengthy article conceming these two young men, my
curiosity was aroused to find out what others of my old school mates were
doing. I then noticed an article headed "Professor Marcel Couze's College of
Mathematical Knowledge Has Open House." I noticed that it was necessary
to have an I. O. of 199 to enter this college and that many graduates of the
New Technical Armstrong High School led the registration.
Reading on, I soon saw the names of the people who had been appointed
to teach in the District for the year of 1956. There were many familiar names
on the list. Maureen Adams, Delmar Barnes and William Brown were named
to teach in the Physical Education Department: Stephen Anderson, who had
received his Master's Degree in General Science, was named to teach Gen-

Next, m,y eyes fell upon an article that read: "First Negro Becomes Navy
Commander. Steward I-loban, who had gone to Navv Radar School and had
passed with flying colors, was now a radar specialist.
Then I spied the article "Francis Iohnson's Client Acquittedf' Later I
read that he had become one of the best criminal lawyers in the city and
ranked high with the nation's top lawyers.
In the comer of the front page, I saw that Mary Leake, a Professor of
English, was touring Europe. As an avocational interest, she was doing
joumalistic research. Turning to the next page I noticed a column headed:
"New York Symphony in Concert at Constitution Hall." Making their debuts
were Gwendolyn Beaseley and lune Norford. The author commented that
these young ladies had climbed the ladder to success in less than l0 years,
a marvelous record for any singer. Miss Beaseley had just finished her tour'
of England and Canada as guest of the King and Queen and the Canadian
A few days later I read in "Downbeat" that Clement Wells had just suc-
ceeded Lionel Hampton as "King of the Vibes." His orchestra was driving
the country mad with his groovy music: and it was still being debated whether
this band or Billy Lee's band was the best. Billy's band had just run a record
engagement at the Apollo. His piano arrangements were giving Eddie Hay-
wood a hard push.
The next article astounded me. It read: "Color Ban Lifted at Navy Yard's
Drafting Department." The first draftsmen who entered this department were
Iames Cousins, Earl Washington, Benjamin Skyles, Wilbert Knight, Henry
Kingwood and Thomas Howard. Mr. Cousins, the article stated, was to be ct
consultant on Electronics.

Another news item stated that there was to be a new hospital to alleviate
Freedmen's crowded rooms. Leroy Foster, one ol the surgeons at Freedmen's,
was to be placed in charge. His assistant was to be Emest Dixon who had
just finished his internship. Nancy Loving, Elinor Amis, Helen Williams and
Cora Allsbrook were to be the nursing staff. Louise Iones, a dietitian of high
standing and long government experience, was to head the dietetics de-
While running through the advertisements, I saw many establishments
whose proprietors I knew. Iames Thomton, who ran one of the most highly
rated pharmacies in Washington, was branching out by building another
store in Northeast. Rudolph Iones was running a very thriving shoe repairing
business. Robert Kelly had a chain of ten imported-liquor and beverages
stores. Donald Iackson was running one ol the largest Negro music stores in
Washington. As a side line he rented public address systems. Benjamin
Wims and Ioseph Young were the proprietors of the Ben and Ioe Drafting'
Supplies Store. Harold Reed and Henry Kingwood had opened a radio
repair and parts store.
After glancing through these advertisements, I tumed to the next page,
where I saw the picture of Lula Williams, prominent Social Worker. She had
been chosen over many other workers by the N.A.A.C.P. to tour the South
and study social conditions. She had picked Louise Daniels as her assistant.
Turning to the next page, I had the surprise of my life when I saw the 1956
Redskin Football Team. Playing end was Ioe Dutch. And at the guard posi-
tion was William Hall. Both boys had torn down the color line and in the
six exhibition games, both made excellent showings for themselves. Ioe caught
four touchdown passes. Hall tore up the opponents' forward wall. They were
coaching Howard's mighty eleven on the side.
Reading on, I saw that Iames Bradford had been named head of the
Physical Education Program at the 12th Street Y.M.C.A. Then an incredible
article stared me in the lace. William Collins and Harold White, local traclc
stars, were making a tour of Switzerland. The last paragraph said that Harold
Crocket had just been voted the city's best diver,
Finally, I settled down to enjoy the comics. Emmett Lucas, famous car-
toonist and comic strip artist, had two strips: Wagwood and Little Orphan'
Fannie. Artist Lucas had won the National Tuberculosis Poster Afward for 1956.
Having gleaned so much news of my former classmates, I decided to visit
these old friends and plan a reunion. They had all kept the old Armstrong
tradition by making the best of their abilities.

"LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF '46"
Friends and heirs of the Class of 1946, I have called you together on this
occasion to listen to the formal reading of the last will and testament of the
Class of 1946.
It was my sad duty when the deceased in question, because her life flame
was slowly dimming, called me to her side, to act as a duly authorized at-
torney of the Bar of Armstrong, Washington, in the District of Columbia, and I
am here to inform you that this will was properly signed and witnessed in my
presence, and that this statement is unalterably perfect and impeccable.
Although she suffered for three years to the greatest degree, in her last
hours she wrote with phenomenal wisdom, therefore, whatever bequests she
makes, although they may not be the happiest selections to her beneficiaries,
were made to the best of her judgment and discretion.
I, Miss Class of '46, feeling the flame of my life slowly but surely extin-
guishing, take time out to bequeath and devise all of my worldly goods with-
out council or advice from any one. I must write fast for if the flame goes com-
pletely out, I shall not be able to see and my sister, Mrs. l. M. Greedie, would,
against my will, take over everything.
Item 1: To Principal Gregory, all the success in the world, as leader-in-
chief, in the new Armstrong Technical High Schoolg also, to the school, a strong
set of struggling, scholastic, students to enter in September.
Item 2: To Mrs. Iewell, 25 inductees for the National Honor Society next
term and not less than l5 for every succeeding induction.
Item 3: To all the tutors in the portables, there have been ample funds
left to have their "chicken coops" renovated, or better still, torn down: and
for Mrs. C. D. A. Brown, Section A-8 has rented for her a permanent room
on the Sun Terrace in the new building.
Item 4: Attention! ! Anyone in the audience who is interested in a pair
of winged track shoes, size 17, will kindly contact Mr. Harold White, the owner,
immediately after the program.
ltem 5: S7,000 has been deposited in the school bank for travel to the other
technical high schools in the country, henceforth making Armstrong one of
the best with the acquired information.
Item 6: To the cafeteria, we bequeath a staff of workers to do the neces-
sary choses instead of borrowing members of the schools for K. P. duty.
CP. S.-A few of the members of the student body are complaining of dishpan
Item 7: To Mr. I. O. Adams and the other gym teachers, as far as the boys
are concerned, an ,entirely new equipped "gym" with abundance of facilities.
Item 8: For any member of the school who lives in the N. E. vicinity, but
still in the city, we have bought two or three 30-passenger stations wagons
to pick up the corner gang whose pass-words are "Going out Florida Avenue?"
Item 9: To the entire sports association, many "go-get-'em knock-me-down
and drag-me-out participants" to fill the gaps of the many now leaving.
Item IU: Next year, the detention hall will be entirely redecorated with
cushioned chairs, velvet foot rugs, snack bar and movies. This is being done
for the so very many who seem to be there more times than they're in school.
Item ll: To Mme. L. C. Hill, 50 enthusiastic tres bonnes eleves to carry on
with le francais and likewise for Mr. Miles and his young German Herrs and
Item 12: For the new annex of the school, a few of our architects and engi-
neers, Robert Holley, Alfred Hawkins, Maurice Bush, and Stewart Hoban have
gotten together to plan a most up-to-date school for those coming in. Here
are some of the features-revolving doors, escalators and elevators, a roof
swimming pool, a lobby for the students to study in, banquet hall and 75 mod-
I Item 13: The Cadet Corps bequeaths all its military knowledge to be used
wisely next year, so that instead of bringing home the bacon you will bring
home the hog, incidently, Captain Vernon Hawkins, acting as chairman, has
succeeded in collecting S70U.00 through the "Better-Your-Feet Work Benefits"
and this money is going to be left to better the cadets! Anyone in the audi-
"LAST WII.L AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF '46"
ence who wishes to sign up for the corps next year kindly contact Captain
Hawkins in his office next Monday between the hours of 9 and 3.
Item 14: To Mrs. Iefferson, another good group of historians to defeat our
neighbors in the various quizes. However, were there any seniors partici-
pating in the last event?
Item 15: To the Torch, our beloved school paper, we bequeath a great
number of new features, around seven more pages and some salesmen to
boost the sale, thus making it better for everybody all around.
Item 16: To Mr. Batson, sponsor of The Reflector, a new saying. In place
of the old "How are you this time?" we suggest "How are you sticking?"
Item l7: Since most of our students are speaking their English with an
accent, meaning slang, these days and completely revising the language,
we've left ample money for Mrs. Mary Leake and Doctor Odell "Daddy O"
Coifey to volumnize the old tongue before it becomes extinct. '
Item 18: The boys in Mr. Websters section have constructed a new pro-
gram lor him and along with this goes a 3500.00 token, too. l have the exact
copy as handed to me by representative Claud Ford and it is as follows:
lst period-newspaper, magazine, and funny book.
3rd period-hall duty.
4th period-Iimmie's Corner.
5th period-trig., heat, drawing, English, math. and lang.
Sth period-clinic for mental check-up after 5th period.
The senior class voted unanimously for this program and feels that the
quicker it's put into effect, the less class-cutting there'll be.
Item 19: To the succeeding graduating class, God's help during the next
term, and good luck. You'll surely need it.
Item 20: To the new technical school, we will all the love, pride, and honor
that has been part of her in by-gone years.
Item 21: To the juniors, we give and bequeath all of our castles in Spain
to be inhabited by them free of charge as long as these castles exist in Q:
Item 22: To the sophomores, we devise all the mistakes ever made by us.
This is a most important bequest because by our own mistakes we learn more
than ever comes to us any other way, and if our own. mistakes are so benefi-
cient, how much more so must be those of others when they become our
Item 23: To the freshmen, the ability to say the right thing in the right
place, and a sure, concrete start to be ever strengthened through their stay
Item 24: To the entire faculty, who have so faithfully struggled to put
in our heads what sledge hammers would fail to do, our deepest appreciation
for their untiring efforts, and in the future, when we attain our heights of suc-
cess, we will always look back and say Mrs. X, or Mr. X made this possible.
God bless them!
Item 25: And last, but not least, to Mrs. H. B. Allen, sponsor of the
Senior Activities, a profound and special, "Thank you," for the work that she
has done to make this, the last graduating night of the old Armstrong, one of
the most memorable and cherished evenings for years to come.
So sadly, but gladly, hereunto, have I set my hand and seal knowing that
all provisions herein proclaimed are as unalterable as the famous laws of the
Medes and Persians!

My friends, I have called you to assemble here as a solemn duty, that
you, the heirs and assigns of my respected and beloved client, the Class of
February 1946, may hear her last will and testament, which as her legal
advisor, I drew as directed by her, immediately prior to her passing from our
May I, as well as my client, entreat that you receive your respective
legacies in the spirit ot unseltish friendship with which they were given.
I shall appreciate your courteous attention while I read this duty attested will.
We, the Class of February 1946, in the City of Washington, District of
Columbia, being in as good mental condition as usual, and in much better
temper than usual, do hereby make this our last will and testament, rendering
void and of no avail any former will or wills that may have been previously
made by us during a period of temporary optimism.
We have no specific directions to leave concerning our funeral, but we
do hope you will come prepared to praise as well as to bury us, forgetting.
the trifling faults that may have been ours and remembering only our manifold
and remarkable virtues.
We feel that our brilliant record and our unusual achievements will live
long alter us, but we wish to take no chances. So we suggest that a tablet,
on which shall be inscribed our several names and a few of our most
remarkable deeds, be purchased from our estate and placed in the auditorium
of the school in a position where it will strike the eye ot all who enter.
And in this manner do we dispose of our possessions:
Item l. We give freely and without reservations to the Iunior Class, our
rightful heirs, our good luck. It made us what we are today, and it should
satisfy them. In addition to this, all our privileges and rights, as well as any'
notebooks, pencils, fountain pens, unfinished lollypops, and also any boys
or girls whom we may have left behind in our haste.
Item 2. To our good friends, the Sophomore Class, we leave our patience.
It will be found useful as the only means by which they can endure the
Item 3. To the Freshmen, we leave our little book entitled "I-low to Tell
the Teachers." This book is not what to tell the teachers but how. It contains
specific information as to which teachers can be blufted, which are easy and
which are hard to please. .
Item 4. To our dear old school building itself, we leave the peaceful
quiet caused by our absence, and any apple cores, pieces of gum or crumpled
notes we may have left about.
Item 5. To our principal we give and bequeath a sense of relief that we
have at last been graduated, pleasant memories of our two and one-half
years, and a feeling of pride in any great deed or noteworthy achievements
that our future may contain, realizing that such glories-if any-will owe
much to his example and counsel.
Item 6. To our teachers we bequeath our valuable sense of humor,
without which we should have found school life painful indeed and which will
do much to make it endurable for them. We also give our very kindest
regards and our sincere gratitude for their untailing kindness and aid.
Item 7. To the history of the Armstrong High School we bequeath our
illustrious deeds and our names as candidates for the Hall ol Fame.

The smaller individual bequests are as follows:
Item 1. To the undergraduate needing it most we give Iames Whitemyes
supply of language, which will enable the recipient to talk more and say less
than any other human being. Also, to the undergraduate who is most in
danger of not passing next year, we bequeath the class' store of information.
along with their old notebooks and test papers which will make it easy for
him to pass any test in any subject at any time.
Item 2. Francis Burrell leaves some nice comfortable cushions for the
seats in the auditorium.
To Armstrong, some clocks that do not need to be set every morning are
left by William Iohnson.
To Armstrong, Winfrey Hill leaves a portable to be erected on the
corner for the convenience of the Armstrong and Dunbar boys who congregate
To the over-ambitious undergraduate, if such there be, we leave the
perfect indolence of some of our class mates. Some people sit and waste
time-they just sit.
Item 3. To the Music Department, Rosa Burress leaves a well-equipped
studio where it can practice without disturbing people who study in the
auditorium. To the French Department, Iulius Cook leaves a locker full of
brilliant, energetic French students.

the corner store full of doughnuts.

pair of nose stopples.
To Earl Telfair, Berlin Dean leaves his paint brushes hoping that the
hair will be renewed.
To the laziest member of the Senior Class-to-be, we bequeath Lillian
Brent's ambition. If it is combined with the laziness previously mentioned,
the result will be normal activity.
To Alice Wood and Ruth Cook, Willie Mae Russell leaves her ability.
To the new section B8, Beatrice Stewart leaves her contagious giggles.
To his Brother Eugene, Arthur Smith leaves his position on the football
Item 4. To the Iunior Class we give reluctantly, but of necessity, our
mantle of dignity. We realize that the class can never fill it but, since it is
expected of them, our advice is, grin and wear it.
Beside these bequests, we leave our best wishes to any and all who may
Any property or personal possessions of ours that may remain, in addition
to the items specified, we give and bequeath to the Board of Education to
use as it sees fit.
Finally, we do hereby name and appoint as the sole executor of this, our
last will and testament, our class advisor, Mrs. H. B. Allen. ln witness whereof
we, the Class of 1946, the testator, have set our hand and seal on this 29th

Mr. Gregory, Members of the 'Faculty, Parents cmd Friends, it is an
honor as a representative of the February graduating class to bring to you
a parting message from them. The class is happy to beegraduating at a
period of reconversion rather than actual war. We are glad to leave Arm-
strong at a time when there are so many new opportunities open for our
young men and women in spite of the many problems that are seemingly
Many of the students who have gone before us and some of these that
are graduating with us never stop to think what a wealth of resources and
opportunities this school offers-nor have they considered seriously these
questions. What has Armstrong done for us in the way of intellectual develop-
ment? How many more practical problems can we solve? ln other words,
has Armstrong prepared us for the real needs of life or are we still lacking
in those fundamental qualities that make for success? If we had thought
about these questions long enough this is what might have been revealed.
The courses Armstrong offer are very useful in themselves. They teach you
to be familiar with the everyday tools of life. The tools that will enable
you to move about in society without too much friction or conflicts with your
fellowmen. This is what you learn in Armstrong shops. We learn to follow'
instructions, read directions and interpret them. We learn to be exact, definite,
thrifty, and to observe carefully. We learn how to evaluate material, choose
wisely and, too, how to use our own judgment.
In the classes in science we learn to apply ourselves diligently in the
search for truth. We have gotten pleasure out of experimentation and we
can appreciate a little more than others countless secrets of the atomic boom.
Our study in Sociology has developed a better understanding of humanity.
We have leamed not to blame people for all their reactions to situations,
but rather to consider the conditions under which they live and their outlook
The world war has caused school authorities to stress more than ever
the value of physical education as it has to do with nutrition, cleanliness,
proper care of body and frequent medical examination and supervision.
Sports have always held an important place in Armstrong's extra
activities. They have taught us to appreciate fine performances on the
field by our school. The careful training that our athletes have received has
enabled them to secure positions and win for themselves recognition in the
world of sports.
The extra-curricular activities, which include all the various clubs, have
been most valuable, for without them many of us would have had little
opportunity to meet so large a number of the teachers and undereclassmates.
Clubs have developed in us proper social attitude, initiative and the desire
to become leaders. They have taken us out of our narrow group of friends
and made us enjoy without discrimination the student body.
F rom the faculty we learned that education and its enriched background
of culture and study are essential to a successful career. From the faculty,
too, we have learned dignity and value of punctuality.
We cannot begin to tell of all the things we have learned in the different
classes, but this we can say-from every class has come valuable experiences
which will help us in our future struggles.
VALEDICTORY f.',1'i,,1,fj'f,,1'f,2,fQf"'i'1""' , ,
You see then if we stop to think seriously about the questions, how greatly
indebted we are to Armstrong for an awakened consciousness of the world
of thinking and doing.
And now, teachers and principal, we appreciate your sympathetic inter-
est, understanding attitude and the urge to go on. To you, parents, we are
grateful for your leadership, guidance and sacrifice. The sacrifices were
great and many, but we shall try never to let you regret having made them.
In saying farewell to our undergraduates may we say that it is an honor
to be a member of a senior class. For they possess dignity, poise and a
higher level of mental achievement. Be sure you possess these qualities
before attempting to occupy our responsible places. May you be our worthy
successors. Our best advice to you is-don't try to bluff, don't waste time,
but get all the knowledge you can.
And now, members of the graduating class, we too must part. Although
we must go separate ways after tonight, may we always be joined in heart
and in spirit and in memories of our days at Armstrong. May good fortune
attend us. As we are about to graduate from Armstrong, let us determine
always to find time to learn something good. Again let us determine to make
our future reflect credit upon the school, home and our country and may we
never forget that it is our responsibility to so fashion our lives and conduct
that with deepest appreciation we will be able to say that Armstrong did
do much in preparing us for the real needs of life.
Mr. Gregory, Members of the Faculty, Parents and Friends, the members
of the February graduating class joyfully and sorrowfully say, Good-bye.

ENGINEERS IN SECOND YEAR
To give the boys of Armstrong a stronger
trend toward the field of engineering, Mr.
Iarries C. Webster, a physics teacher, began
a course in engineering lor seniors in Sep-
tember l94-4. lt was a splendid idea, for it
gave our school the distinction ot saying
that it was the first senior high school in
the District to oiler such a course.
ln the course are tive subjects making a
coordinated program. They are trigonome
try, applied mechanics heat engines, indus
trial processes and mechanical drawing,
each ol which is related to the other.
For the boys of the first class the course
proved most effective. With the exception
ot two boys who are in the Armed Services,
all ol them are attending colleges that offer
courses in engineering. Most ol them advise
the boys of this years class that those taking
the course should avail themselves ol every
opportunity as the graduates have all lound
the courses most beneiicial.

The present class began their work very
enthusiastically. They were amazed at the
unbelievably short time that it took them to
master the fundamentals ot mathematics and.
mechanics. They are also developing accu-
racy in writing and the ability to interpret
the skills of engineering. ln addition there is
opportunity for abstract thinking and ion
the development ot the mind.

FAREWELL T0 ARMSTRONG
Out into the world we go,
This class of forty-six,
To fulfill all our dreams
And keep fond memories live.
Farewell dear Armstrong Senior High
We are leaving you, it's true:
1 But as the coming years go by
Our hearts will pine for you.
Our dream boat will carry us.
How far? Who only knows?
In your teachings is our trust
How bright our candles glow!
