Are you a mariner with soul of adventure, To sail the ocean tide? Or an artist whose masterpiece Will know fame both far and wide?

Or do you dream of steering The nation ' s Ship -of State, Or piloting great air-craft What is your dream — Classmate? Whatever the dream, to be mastered, The method is always the same, Hold fast to the vision before you, And yours will be fortune and fame. -MARGARET SMITH. TO BROAD RIPPLE! Alma mater, aufwiedersehen. 9 We stand as students upon thy threshold For the last time, Yet, ' tis not goodbye, Just aufwiedersehen. For, in our minds We shall oft return; in our hearts Relive these hours. This school is yours and ours ; This moment ours, This memory ours, Aufwiedersehen. —VIRGINIA MENIKHEIM. XXX MAY IT NOT BE CHANGED! The class of 1937 may be the last to graduate from this school as Broad Ripple High School. Much is being said concerning a change of name. No matter what the name, may the spirit of a friendly, family-like school never be changed!
