Telephone: FAlle Church 1214 Post Office Drawer 1 FALLS CHURCH HIGH SCHOOL FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA May 1950 Dear Graduate of I 95 O: I know that this time of graduation brings you mixed feelings. There is the abiding sense of satisfaction. Twelve long years of work and study are behind you. You have a happy pride of accomplisliment in having passed so well your sixteen or more credit units. But even though school days are behind you, you do not feel carefree. Here you stand a tiptoe peering into the realm of things yet to be, and you have some misgivings about this freedom from home and school supervision, once so eagerly awaited. Security and protection are passing and henceforth you will be more largely on your own responsibility. Soon you will be expected to earn your own way in life and to make your own decisions. Then too, your heart is heavy in saying goodbye to these warm friends of Falls Church High. Yes, this is a sad time as well as a happy time. I congratulate you on subscribing to this Jaguar. As the years go by, you will pore over it many times, refreshing your memory of old friends and living again events and ac¬ complishments of your school days. Keep this book carefully. You are going to enjoy it even more when you are thirty than you do now at eighteen. As you leave, you carry with you the affection and good wishes of students and faculty. Please come back and visit school when you can. Vie shall never forget you. Page 4

In fWcmoriam WILLIAM CLAUDE BURROWS Died May 5, 1948 HE IS NOT DEAD — HE’S GONE BACK HOME by Anne Harrison The Master softiy called his name, The time drew nigh for him to roam Unto the place from which he came. He is not dead — He’s gone back home. He’s found the promised happiness In a land that knows no care, He’s entered into perfect bliss— His heart will be untroubled there. We’ll miss the way his big blue eyes Lit up with joy when he was glad; We’ll miss the disappointing sighs That came whenever he was sad. We will remember still each hand, The way he walked, in boyish style, The way he used to sit and stand, The things he said, his friendly smile. Recalling him will bring a tear, Elis friends will often want to cry. But just because he is not here There is no need to say goodbye— His spirit will still walk with us, Comfort, help us, until when Way up there he ' ll talk to us And be among us once again. We loved him and we want our friend To always have the verv best. His earthly journey found its end He’s claimed his throne among the blest. He is an angel in heaven today And though he’ll no longer roam With us below, let’s smile and say— " He is not dead — He’s gone back home.”
