I ask each student and faculty member: nHave you done your best
'Through the Year' of 1953-54 toward raising the standards and ideals
of Evanston High School? Or, epigrammatically speaking, could this
apply to you, 'Tho little and too late?'H
If our actions have been dilatory, now is the time to take an
inventory. Another year ahead is yet to be molded. nTime wasted can
never be regained.n This can be the lesson I learn as I view the past.
It is only human that I first list those activities and academic
accomplishments in which we took pride and can justly receive approba-
tion. We turn the calendar in pleasant reminiscence:
Septelber Homecoming, with an attractive parade which could compete
with any high school! This, of course, is inseparable from
October ..-- The Carnival Dance! 'Ihe FHA has embedded a tradition in our
high school which we don't want broken. The Sophomore Stomp
gave us a gala evening of formal dancing.
November---Our fellow students gave us drama and humor in nHhrvey.n
Hay ------ --
This month brought the publication of the Olristmas edition
of the Paralyzer with our talents in story and poem
A schedule of basketball games! We and our team were com-
mended on our good sportsmanship.
Basketball continued! The Council Stocking Dance brought a
memorable evening of fun.
The outstanding seventh grade assembly in the form of a
circus! Yes, and we laughed as "George Washington Slept
Here" was enacted.
A month of music! Our high school has always excelled in
this field. We presented a spring concert, and we partici-
pated in the annual Music Festival in Kenmerer.
This month can never be forgotten in any year! Yes, it
brought the Jnmior Prom, the Senior Hop, and graduation for
the ninth grade and seniors.
These are only a few of the highlights which nuke the mental picture
of this year a happy. one.
Now, I find myself reluctant to turn the pages of my record book
and realistically evaluate all phases of my school life these past nine
months. Have I attained those goals which will aid me in leading a full
life? Should I have pursued my scholastic rating with more diligence?
The honor roll needed more names. Was I a laggard? Was I courteous and
respectful in all my associations? Was my work and person neat at all
times? Did my classwork have priority over extra-curricular activities?
Did I utilize and budget my time for study and perfecting my weak-
nesses? Were my actions at home, in the school, and in the community
If I have been able to answer all these questions in the affinnative,
then "Through the Year" of 1953-54 holds no regrets. I have done
my part toward achieving a year for EHS which will be esteemed in
this The Devil's Diary.”
