The progress ot Feitshans High retlects the wisdom and
administrative ability of Mr. Nichols. Through his help and
understanding Feitshans has achieved high goals and is still
reaching higher. Mr. Nichols, our captain, is always on hand
to advise, supervise, and intervene it he deems it necessary.
Dean of Boys
Maybe the tirst time you met Mr.
Vvrax was when you registered at the
beginning ot the year. Or it may be
that you really came to know him
through a mari-tofman talk which
cured your case ot Wanderlust or
spring fever. Nevertheless, we all
think he's one tine person.
MISS ELIZABETH COGSWELL
Dean of Girls
The work ot teaching senior and
remedial English pales beside the
important job ot Counseling girls in
trouble and aiding us in our choice
ot vocations and colleges.

Algebra is a most important subject for it is
the stepping stone to higher mathematics.
Freshmen are not the only ones to discover its
value. You will find juniors and seniors as

Algebra has many practical applications.
Problems in measuring distances and time, the

ways algebra can be applied in grocery stores,
all these are discussed in this usetul subject.

MISS ELIZABETH M. POLLOCK
On August 6, l947, the many friends
and fellow teachers of Miss Elizabeth M.
Pollock were shocked and saddened by
her sudden death after only a few
hours' illness. Miss Pollock taught in
Dubois Grade School several years.
Since 1941, she taught global geograf
phy and general science in Feitshans
High School. She will always be re-
membered for her excellent teaching,
genuine interest in students, and for
her friendliness to everyone.

Springfield, he first taught mathematics
at'Lanphier High School in l935. ln
recent yearn he held classes in mer-
chandising in all the high schools. He
helped many students with their first
work in stores and offices. His fine
teaching and cheerfulness will never be

Mid-year graduating classes are usually small and this one was no exception. However,
what it lacked in quantity it made up for in qual ity. lt represented a cross-section of almost every
activity in school. Many ofthe graduates were officers of clubs and members of various com-

one-fourth of them made the National Honor society. This is a very high percentage. Those who
wear the National Honor Society pins may Weil Wear them proudly. They are a symbol of recog-
nition for fine Work.

GENERAL EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT TEST
CLASS OF '48 - IANUARY
Seniors of '48-June
lune graduation is always a big event. There is the usual last-minute rush, the unexpected
homework, the inevitable final exams, the prom, the vesper services, the Iunior-Senior banquet, the
senior picnic, and, of course, graduation.
Graduation! This is the ceremony that officially marks the end of high school days for the
senior class. As thehclass, all garbed alike, sit on the stage, it is hard to realize that graduation
means a different set of hopes, dreams, and visions to each one. To some graduation means mar-
riage, establishing a homeand family. To others it means the end of all studying, and they will
never again open a book. A few will help support their family. Some will take jobs which have
a chance for promotion and a moderate amount of success. Some will take the first job they can
get, thinking only of the present and their eager desire to make money. A minority of the class,
still Wanting to learn, will go to college. Some are doomed to oblivion, a few will rise to fame.
Whatever your choice, we wish you luck.

This year at Feitshans We had a very suc-
cessful football season in Winning the Central

Merrill, Ed. Smith, and McCoy out of the back-
tield, and lim Smith and Richard Polic off the

This year'5 basketball team wasn't as good
as We expected it to be. We had some tough
breaks and lost by some close scores. Our
regional hopes were darkened when We lost
three regulars, Clack Glas, Bob Wallace, Midge
Merrill? in lanuary due to graduation.
We are hoping tor a better record next year
when We will have a few experienced freshmen
and sophomores besides the seven letter Win-
ners who finished this season.
We had the distinction ot having two boys,
