While we have tried to carry on this year as usual,
it has been impossible to conceal the sadness in our
hearts. From the events of 1945, history will record
the greatestf battles, death, and destruction of all
time. As long as we all shall live may we never forget
our boys who have paid this enormous price that we
might enjoy the freedom of our homes. Let us unite our
efforts, make any sacrifice willingly, and determine to
keep the peace for which they have fought so bravely.
When they have finished their work on the battle
fronts, the responsibility for making a lasting peace
will be ours. Education that brings us understanding
and tolerance of our world neighbors is the only hope
for a permanent peace. Each generation must earn the
right to such a peace by the education of its citizens,
constant vigilance, and courage to stand for the right
in a world of prejudice and intolerance.
Are you preparing yourself to help keep the peace?
Will you "break faith with those who die?"
f RUTH CALVERT
Dean of Girls
Because of conditions brought on by the war, the
task of getting out this year's annual has been more
complicated than usual. However, the many obstacles
that had to be overcome have served only as a chal-
lenge and an inspiration to those responsible for its
productions, to the end that the l944-45 Trail's End
will compare very favorably with any produced under
more favorable circumstances.
The book has been dedicated appropriately
enough, to those former students who have made their
final but lasting contribution to the maintenance of
those ideals to which our school is pledged.
Perhaps, the most fitting way that we can honor
these boys who have given their all in the cause of
freedom would be to pledge ourselves anew to do our
part here at home as they have done so nobly on
foreign fields. Our role is small compared to theirs
but it can be play with the same high courage and
spirit of self-sacrifice.
We intend to keep faith with those of our number
to whom the 1944-45 Trail's End is dedicated.
