Friends, Alumni, Faculty, and Fellow Stu-
E are the sixty-first class to graduate from the ivy-
wclad Brattleboro High School. Four years ago the
class of forty-nine entered the halls of B. H. S. at a mo-
ment when the entire world was gripped by a state of
chaos and turmoil. We are now graduating at a time
when all indications point to better days, and show that
the world will regain its footing on the tread-mill of
time. We realize, however, that this desired change can-
not be accomplished if we do not use our resourceful-
ness and our youth.
We must be ready to combat obstacles with which we
are not familiar. We must meet the challenges that life
presents. This is one undertaking in which we cannot
fail and must not fail, for we are the backbone of a great
nation-the greatest nation.
Tune: 'Cruising Down the River"
E'VE sailed along these last four years,
wled by a single star,
And through a sea of laughs and tears,
Its light has shone afar,
Our ships are made of book and thought-
Wherever We may steer-
No matter what new ports are sought-
One star will guide us here.
IAILING down the river, or strolling neath the moon,
Our thoughts of you will steal back through
The years like some sweet tune,
The melody of mem'ries will haunt us night and noon,
And days to come will weave a symphony from our old
The friends we made will never fade,
Though far away we roam,
Proms and games, familiar names
Will draw our hearts back home,
Golden days can't tarnish , they're always bright and
So, B. H. S., we'll never really say goodbye to you.
-Nancy Alice Fitzgerald
UNE hundred years ago another group of '49ers set
out to taste the wine of adventure. Their road was
unknown, untried, and almost unconquerable. Yet, with
determination and courage they succeeded in pioneering
-in developing a great part of our land.
Whether we be gold-seekers or goal-seekers, we must
have the initiative, the determination, and the training
to persevere. We will do our best to succeed.
We wish to thank the faculty for their invaluable aid,
advice, and unending patience. We will try to fulfill our
obligations to the townspeople of Brattleboro. We will
strive to safeguard and to preserve our homes and our
It is my pleasure to welcome you to these commence-
ment exercises and to ask you to share the feeling of this
class of nineteen hundred forty-nine.

Tune: "Forever and Ever"
FOREVER and ever
Our hearts will be true,
Dear school, forever,
We'll cherish you,
Now that we are parting
From your ivied walls,
We'1l ne'er forget you,
Tho' a bright, new future calls.
Forever and ever
We'll gladly recall
Days here where ivy
Grows green and tall,
The lessons youive taught us
Our future will bless,
So now goodbye,
Good luck to Dear Old B. H. S.
wE'LL hold sweet memories
For every heart
Through each year,
So we'll say goodbye to our
Alma mater, now,
And forever we'll keep her spirit dear.
