Message From The
President Of The Senior Class
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE SENIOR CLASS:
It is With mixed feelings of happiness and sorrow that I extend
my last message to the class of '39. I am deeply grateful for the
honor which you bestowed upon me at the beginning of the
year but the position of my office means far less than the expres-
sion of confidence and trust which you placed in me. The ready
assistance of a splendid staff of officers has made my job a
I congratulate you upon the successful completion of your
high school work. Your perseverance in attending school night
after night When perhaps it meant many sacrifices shows a de-
termination that is bound to triumph Your persistence in the
pursuit of education proves an aggressiveness that Will overcome
As you leave Evening High School do not forget that here
you received the diploma that Will enable you to go on to higher
fields of education and other pursuits of endeavor. Here you have
formed friendships and habits of industry that will endure
throughout your lite. We should be conscious of a great debt
of gratitude to those who have helped us attain this goal and
feel a deep respect for the principles of government Which makes
such a system of education possible.
The task of saying farewell is too great for me. I cannot bring
myself to contemplate such a solemn benediction. Rather, let this
be a happy Wish of good luck and God-speed and a fond hope
that we shall meet With smiling faces and a hearty handshake
many times in the future.
EDWARD C. DeWITT,
President Class of '39.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
With the end of the school year at last in view, it is time to take a glance
backward and review the crowded events of the past months before the long
awaited Commencement Night arrives.
The first formal meeting of the Senior Class was held on November 10, and
after its organization, the following officers were elected:
President .................................. Edward C. DeWitt
Vice-President ......................... . . . .Edward A. Kerins
Secretary .................................. Doris Mae Stevens
Treasurer ...................................... Donald Crane
The remainder of the meeting was devoted to a discussion of the school
activities tor the coming year and the project ot publishing THE OWL was
brought to the lloorl and finally decided upon. The possibility of a Christmas
Assembly was discussed, and was agreed upon. This resulted later in a
gathering which was a pronounced social and artistic success.
The second meeting was held on Ianuary ll. The matter of class dues was
presented to the members. The sum of $3.50 plus an additional 50C for photo-
graphs was suggested by Mr. DeWitt, and approved by a majority of those
present. Plans for the publication of the Yearbook followed in due course, and
the matter of a Mid-Year Dance was vigorously discussed pro and con before
its final approval
This aflair was held at Levering Hall on February 3, and was a tremendous
success; thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.
On February 20, another meeting was called by Mr. Schmied and all the
class members were urged to pay their class clues at the earliest moment.
The possibility of a Senior Prom was brought up, but no definite decision was
reached. The question of suitable attire at the Commencement Exer-
cises was discussed, and it was concluded that the ladies would follow the
precedent set by former years and wear white gowns, while the gen-
tlemen would wear white suits.
On May 1, a meeting was called at which the date of Commencement was
set at Iune 8. The class was told that the last few nights of school would be
devoted to rehearsals for this occasion.
It was at this time that the Seniors learned that heW. ................

ward Kerins, had found it necessary to resign from school due to ill-hectltnt
Miss Agnes Mooney was appointed to fill the position and was duly elected
by a majority ol the Seniors at the final meeting of the class.
In taking leave of the Evening High School, we say cm revoir and fully
know that we shall meet in other walks of lite. To the class of 1940, we extend
our heartiest wishes for a pleasant and successful senior year. We envy them
their opportunity of spending a year which we are sure will be as full oi
happiness and gratification as our year, 1939, has been.
