MR. MERRITT C. NAUTSA
Thomas A. DeVilbiss High School will
benefit always from the diligent and
praiseworthy achievements of our princi-
pal, Merritt C. Nauts.
A broadminded educator
Respected for his loyalty
Remembered for his Congeniality
Admired for his democratic spirit.
The year 1937 was a significant year in the progress of DeVi1biss High School. In this year
came to fruition a campaign for the repaving of Upton Avenue after a long and sustained eifort
participated in by the student body under the leadership of the Prism staff. This project was pref
dicated upon proper drainage before the new pavement could be laid. The construction of the new
drainage system for the entire area surrounding the school is now nearing completion. We can
thus expect that in the immediate future the influence of the school will actually result in the very
great improvement of the neighboring district. Participation in projects of this sort indicates that
the youth of today can be expected to recognize and accept real responsibilities in coping with civic
problems. No age has ever been so confronted with social problems challenging the honest efforts
of young people to find a proper solution for them.
May DeVilbiss always inspire her graduates to accept the responsibilities of leadership for
worthy civic enterprises.

To the Students of Testerday, Today and Tomorrow:
Probably twenty thousand young people will graduate from the high schools of Ohio this
year. Many of these boys and girls will enter college and university. Others will go directly
from high school into the various fields of industry.
From this vast army of youth will come our social and industrial leaders and followers of
tomorrow. The social setfup into which this group will go offers many challenges. The future
of our democratic ideal is dependent in no small measure on the extent to which our society meets
the needs of all the individual members. The responsibility for the solution of all the problems
thus involved will be placed squarely on the students of today who will be the citizens of tomorrow.
These students of today who will be the graduates of tomorrow may do well to take advanf
tage of every opportunity afforded them in our modern high schools that they be better equipped to
assume the responsibilities that will of certainty become theirs.
The students of yesterday who are the men and women of today have met the challenge and
have solved many perplexing problems. There are many as yet unsolved.
The opportunity for service to the students of yesterday, today, and tomorrow are most un'
usual and interesting. May all the success and happiness of the world come to the members of
the Class of 1938.
