Then came the war-the terrible, anxious, grievous years of conflict. All plans for building had to be abandoned so materials might be had for winning the war. Hundreds of Cohn's grad- uates rose and students went out to defend the people and ideals they loved. The school rose to its obligations in selling bonds, making band- ages for the Red Cross, gathering scrap iron and waste paper. The Colm Clarion staff furnished morale to the boys in the Armed Services by sending the newspaper all over the world. Twenty-four of our men gave their lives for their way of life. They have become forever en- shrined in the character and tradition of their school. With the coming of peace came other things: the joy and relief of welcoming returning loved ones, the weariness and temptation to lassitudeg educational needs of returneesg reawakening old dreams and planning a new future. It was in 1943 that Cohn's athletic star began to rise. For over three and a half years Cohn reigned undefeated in football, going undefeated three years and retiring the Nashville Banner football trophy. The completion and lighting of Sikes Field and the building of the football held house gave the school the hnest in football facilities. Fine records in basketball, baseball, golf, and tennis have given Cohn an enviable place in the athletic picture in Nashville. It is characteristic of the people of l'Vest Nash- ville that their faith in a greater Cohn survived in the trying years of war and readjustment. As soon as materials were available, the Men's Club, the P.-T. A., the teachers, Mr. Cohn- all began to look forward to the expansion of the school to meet the growing needs of the community. Thanks to their efforts and to the understanding and vision of our Board of Education, ground was broken for the new wing to Cohn High School in January, 1949. At this writing most of the work is completed and new facilities are being added. Once again the floor space of the school has been doubled. A new gymnasium seating 1,400 people, a new library, a new dining room seating 400, a new band and orchestra department of fourteen rooms, a new Home Economics department, a new playroom, a new science laboratory, an enlarged stage and light- ing equipment, and twenty-one new classrooms have been built. The old building has been rearranged and refinished. A new public ad- dress system, a new time system, and a new fire alarm system have been installed. Altogether al- most a million dollars is being spent to make Cohn one of the finest school plants in Tennes- see. As usual, Mr. Cohn added the final touch by giving the school a beautiful new organ for the auditorium. The year 1950 has brought Cohn many good things. It has also brought irreparable loss. Mr. Xvilliam Hume, chairman of our Board of Edu- cation, passed away. A greater Cohn was a large part of Mr. Hume's educational vision for Nash- ville. His understanding, sympathy, and loyalty were unbounded. Cohn lost one of her oldest and best friends at the passing of Mr. Charles Cohn. His devo- tion to the school was a beautiful thing. During the years he lavished his affection, his attention, and his means upon Cohn High School. He was as modest as he was generous. He asked nothing but to give. He left us all a nobler thing than material wealth - he taught us the "giving life." The year 1949-50 has brought to Cohn a new adventure in school life. It has brought the students opportunity to share in the authority and responsibility of governing themselves. This is an important opportunity-to learn of de- mocracy through producing it - to learn thc price of freedom through responsibility and work - to learn to respect the will of the majority - to learn to live together in harmony and mutual respect. Student government has succeeded at Cohn. Cohn is growing up. GREATER COHN HAS ARRIVED! W. R. ROCHELLE fPrincijml for Twelve Yearsj
