Trees, flowers and birds Democracy I see. For everywhere I look about, UNCLE SAM AND I United States of America I Peace hath our God given, It means so much to me: America he has blestg Now, my fellow-citizens, We must do the rest. We, who are the youth, TBI AYOGAN Even seem to know That our love for America Will never cease to grow. Can overcome the wrong If daily we set out to bear All our burdens with a song. You are our life, America, We'll love you till we dieg And we'll always be filled with pride 'When Old Glory passes by. Look about you, Americans, See your blessings hereg Look again, Americans, What have we to fear? Ellen Collins WHAT UNCLE SAM MEANS TO ME A century and a half ago a new government was ordained in America founded on something almost new to Europeans - Liberty. In the years that have followed, the United States of America has become a design for equality and justice, leading nations-and peoples to liberalism all over the world. Today this takes on new significance. With oppression and suffering being felt all about her, America becomes a sanctuary of these principles, not only to others who, in peril and distress, look to her for aid and relief, but also to Americans in whom are awakened a new devotion and greater zeal for making them secure. Uncle Sam guarantees us Liberty with happiness and security and provides equal opportunities for all his people. An American's life and possessions are his own, to be used for whatever he desires: he is called upon for his services and contributions only when the safety and integrity of the country is at stake. Ours is the right to worship God in the church of our choice, subject only to the dictates of our own conscience. The decisions of life are left with us. We are free to frame and carry out our own ideas, to criticize the government, and to suggest improvements. We are endowed with the right to express our views peacefully to others. But, this is only the beginning of the kindness of Uncle Sam. These personal liberties and many more are guaranteed to all citizens alike, to the merchant or the farmer, the minister or the office holder, the industrial worker or the business magnate. The franchise is granted to all citizens who are capable and deserving of a voice in governmental affairs. The great fortunes and opportunities of this vast land of almost unlimited resources are free and open to all who will only invite opportunity to their doors. As a student, I know the boundless possibilities offered in schools to every American boy or girl who is eager to prepare his life for a useful future. Probably the most precious endowment which Uncle Sam can offer is the felicity which we enjoy. In this traditional land of peace and comparative security, we are fairly safe from repeated and disastrous hostility and strife between nations which so often shatters the tranquility of human existence. In this country, states, of a size to be considered nations elsewhere, are joined in mutual friendship and diffidence, all deriving their authority from the central government. Here, peoples of scores of nationalities, religions, races and creeds, are united with one ultimate goal - to form a perfect democracy. Here we can pass our lives in happiness, comparative peace and reasonable abundance. Let us, as Americans, rally ardently to the defense of our beloved WLand of the free and home of the brave,W for in the realm of Uncle Sam, Compassion and the Golden Rule prevail rather than Oppression and Iron Rule.

Here they learned the three nR'sn and had their first glimpse of school life. Only three members of this graduating group were in that first grade class: Stanley Fox, Betty Brown, and Floyd Crocker. Others joined the ranks as the years passed by and our school life rapidly expanded. Exciting and puzzling experiences awaited the students in grammar school. However, through the patience and efforts of our teachers, this illustrious class passed from the eighth grade into a high school full of new opportunities and achievements. High school life has been both happy and exciting. In the junior year, the class entered the new modern monument for the promotion of knowledge, and a more proud or happier group of Juniors could not be found The highlights of the year were a play, 'Aunt Susie Shoots the Norks , and a very successful Junior Prom. At last the students came to their last school year of secondary education. The students of our class adopted their new title of nSeniorsn with the greatest dignity and pride and selected Stanley Fox as their leader. Through the ,ff earnest endeavors and cooperation of the faculty advisor, Miss Connor, and all the members of the W class of '41 the goal was reached: a trip to Washington, I3.C., and graduation ---the f C M, result of perseverance, hard work and f" , many happy hours of student life.
