As V-E and V-J Days recede slowly into the past, our
memories of the tense times preceding them grow gradually
less sharp in outline. As our corridors and classrooms no
longer see visiting Centralites in the uniform of the Navy, the
Army, the Air Corps, or the Marines, we are no longer so
acutely conscious of the service that these, our former stu-
dents, gave. Foremost among them are those who gave their
lives. In reverent tribute we once more give them individual
recognition in these pages. There are those hundreds, both
graduate and undergraduate, who left their known civilian
world for one of combat, and who, returning, are attempting
to adjust themselves to changed conditions. To them, in
mass, we bow in recognition of service done. To those under-
graduates, who, after entering the service, realized the value
of a high school diploma and fulfilled the requirements nec-
essary to procure it, we devote a portion of this yearbook.
Also, in grateful apreciation we dedicate this, our

Traditions cling to an institution as vines do to walls, attaching to the dead mate-
rials of a building something that is alive, that gives it character and change. To us,
the students of Central High, this forty-year-old building is not just a' material four
walls and roof, but rather it is a collection of practices and beliefs which belong to our
school alone and which give it individuality. Traditions have a way of growing .upon
a school as time progresses. Ideas started years ago and gradually taken for grant-
ed become traditional. In the same manner practices relatively new may under the in-
fluence of time become themselves established rituals. There enduring customs make
up in large part the memories of the graduate. To him Central High School means
among other things the beauty of the Memorial Day Services, the right to choose his
course, honor study hall, one-way traffic on the stairs, assemblies on Wednesday,
and finally the gift of a rose with his diploma.
