ln this the eleventh and last edition of the Piratecho, the staff has endeavored to grasp the essence
of the spirit, a medley of the memories, and a blend of the ideals and experiences that have shaped
Douglas High School for the past thirty-three years.
Just as no two students have been identical, indeed no two years have been quite the same, but
all have been mileposts along a common highway. From the roaring twenties, through the depressing
thirties, the war-torn forties, to the still fearful fifties, Douglas High School has prided herself upon
her ability to turn out well balanced men and women who go on adding to their sum totals of
knowledge after graduation,
Her students have had to use the city streets for a campus, so tightly crowded together are the
"halls of learning" of D,H.S, Yet no young man with a pretty girl by the hand has ever felt cheated
as he strolled from the campus to a convenient drug store hangout. As each springtime burst out in all
its glory- and there is a glory in South Georgia springtimes--ra girl tired of Geometry or Chaucer
could always circle "college drive," where it was perpetually open season and the game was abundant.

stone and fashioned of roughhewn timbers It is not so at Douglas High School Her graduates must
brag instead of intangible things of brave new ideas of leadership in mapping fresh routes for the
mind or of the benefits that accrue from constant change
Some Douglas High School graduates remember most vividly the classroom sessions which frightened
or inspired them exploding beakers in a chemistry leb book reports due on the first of the month
math problems that would not solve themselves But Douglas High School is something more than
this It is a crisp November afternoon when our football team looked like AllAr'n rican to
lt is the frenzied hour before sending the Buccaneer to the printers when ideas flowed like molasses

We trust that this volume of the Piratecho is such that it stimulates only the happiest memories in
the minds of Douglas High School graduates and that each will recall again a dream o bliss o
