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
We, who are the youth,
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?
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
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.

In the fall of '29, fifteen frightened, yet happy students, found their way to
the first grade where Miss Baker greeted them. 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. X if
