...I 0 0 he-gun C.C.S. AT WAR Lveryone in C.C.S. is trying to do his share in the fight for freedom and a better world. Those of us who are not shouldering guns are trying by our letters to boost the morale of those who are, and are trying in all the ways we know to fit ourselves for citizenship in the world both today and tomorrow. The Seniors this year decided that it would be unpatriotic to take a trip. The trains are moving troops, busses are crowd ed with people who have, and the gas situation is becoming more acute all the time. In place of the trip, which has been the highlight of senior years past, a honor plaque for C.C.S. Alumni in service is being presented to the school. In hnglish classes since nThey Burned the Booksu students are more eagerfto learn what those dangerous American ideals are which the Nazis would suppress. They seek more eagerly to talk and write with clearness and directness. History and science and math acquire new and urgent siginficance now. Books which explain our time are read eagerly such as: Journey for Margaret, They Were Expendable, Thus Be It Ever, Journey Among Warriors, Primer for Americans, and many others. From first grade to faculty, stamps and bonds are purchased. The Assembly Committee has planned programs to deepen our patriotism,and the Student Council has assumed leadership in furnishing wholesome entertainment for stu dents and furlough friends in frequent :parties in the gym. Both class work and extracurricular activities have been planned to hasten the day of victory and to prepare us to help make it permanent. OPPORTUNITY Opportunityl We all have the oppor- tunity to do the things which we want to, and to have something we've always wanted sometime during our lives. Most of us are like the man in the poem "Opportunity", we do not recognize the fact that what we have is just as good as other people's things. His sword was just as good as or better dun the prince's sword because his did not break the first time he used it. Today, .especially, everyone wants more than he has. We don't realize that the people in European Countries would think lt was heaven if they could have the things we have and were allowed to do what we do. Many of us wish we could go to gg- lege or on to better positions, but we think we haven't the opportunity. Grass over the fence lsn't reallya y greenerg it Just 100143 that Way. If we would all watch and be alert,we have plenty of op- portunities. 5. gtorm WITH EACH NEW DAY In the morning as I rise hastily and hurry about the house preparing for school I sometimes wonder what the day has in store for me. What new exciting thing will happen during the day: what will I laugh aboutg what bit of news if any will I re- ceive to make me feel sad? With each new day I have new hopes, new plans,new ideas. And I think this is a universal feel- ing. I believe there are millions of'mhez high school boys and girls arising each morning with a carefree happiness. And I believe that many of them greet the new day in much the same manner as I do. With thoughts. Thoughts about the past, the present, and the future. We glance casually at the things in our rooms. Pictures of our brothers and friends in the service. These remind us of the days before the war or even perhaps of their last furlough. We think of their last letters and we who are more sentimen- tal will perhaps have tears in our eyes. But we know we must keep ong so we give one last lingering look at the picture one last thought, and go on to face the new day. We switch on the radio, and a loud blare of swing music rings in our ears. Perhaps they play some catchy little tune, and soon our minds and our hearts are fill ed with music, and we sing. Then in our gaiety we listen to the war news. Again we think of our friends away but not with tears for we know they would notlike tears So we listen and hope they are O. K. and that they will soon be back with us. Soon the news switches to music again and we sing. We laugh and sing and go on through the day trying our best tonmke our land, America, a land of people to be proud of. With each new day we study, we work, we laugh, we sing. Yes, with each new day we high school students strive to 'make America, our home, a place to be proud of. L. Benjamin MISTAKES After we make mistakes, we can't undo them. It takes an intelligent person to prevent them. Many times while we are thinking of ourselves or not thinking at all we injure others. We don't give encouragement where it is needed. Everyone needs a little,and many expect an awful lot of encouragement. It may seem right that the truth should always be told about everyone. May be the truth which you tell someone about your friend might ruin his good reputation You could have talked about something else and if you had known that incident to be the truth you could have kept it to your- self. Then there are other times when we don't talk when we should. Many times you could contribute a few good words about people or events which would lead to a fairer judgement of them., If the truthful and rightous people only survivedon earth, they would be few and lonely. So any good deed we may do and any kind word we may speak, let us do it now, because we're ii? s3WQ X N354 xt s xx .XE as A k R w. 5. FQ . Q '8' Ng X X -. .X Qs a-.fga X 'G.
