- FORE WORD 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. ny an ' t' ution f arning boasts of 'ts ' 'ed owers, ' ' ' gs aid clown wth han i 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 i nuary e in ones cass o as in a i r clas at a JuniorSen r Banquet and the smiles and tears of graduation 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 beautiful to last X ,A N sm K ' X N.
