Mr. Stokes fits this category incomparably.

Visualize a kaleidoscope-a pattern of tiny bits
of color in all sizes and shapes-each different
from the other. When separate, each piece stands
harsh and lonely as if it has no purpose to per-
form, no beauty, no interest. Yet, gather these
solitary bits, arrange them in a pattern, and a
picture of harmony appears.
When assembled, each piece shares a little of
its hue to enhance and complement the colors
around it. They blend to project a more meaning-
ful image of completeness. Each piece has a re-
lationship to another-not even the smallest can
be unnoticeably removed, for so dismembered,
the picture loses its balance and beauty.
Our school is a kaleidoscope-a never ending
but ever blending array of students, teachers,
books, classes, organizations, tests, grades-all
blending to create harmony, balance, and most
important, function. Each part is essential to the
whole, and no one part rises above the others.
Each person is a part of the kaleidoscope-Like
the many varied colors of a kaleidoscope, each
teacher, each student is different. His appearance,
his beliefs, his life aims are infinitely varied, never
to be entirely duplicated-this is the Way we were
created. Yet, put these pieces of personality to-
gether, and the Whole person emerges as a unit
which becomes a vital part of a school.

Each year the scene shifts, and new facets pro-

each piece forgotten. The meaning of this great
cohesion lives through the existence and necessity
of each piece in the pattern.
Ours is a symmetrically complete school

This piece of the kaleidoscope sheds more light
and hue to the surrounding pieces than any of the
other ones. With a Willingness to understand the
individual, the members of our faculty serve not
for their self-interest alone, but for the purpose of
presenting patterns to prepare the lives and fu-
tures of each student for our educated world.
They guide and instruct with constant patience
and genuine concern-not permitting us to doubt
without first inspiring us to believe. Each teacher
gives not only of his wisdom but also of a true
and meaningful friendship.

Doctors Flora and Varlt Play Important
Roles In Education
Dr. and Mrs. Varn are favored guests at the
faculty Christmas party.
Falcons deem it a privilege
to have their school bear the
name of the prominent educa-
tor, Dr. A. C. Flora. Having
such a namesake is a constant
challenge to Flora students,
who diligently strive upward,
choosing the outstanding life
of Dr. Flora as their model.
Each semester at Student Council

actions are characteristic of our principal, Mr. I.
K. Blum. Years of experience and consistent
learning have made Mr. Blum a respected, effi-

well-being of each student marks him as a man
of immense human understanding. When Mr.
Blum speaks, We cannot help listening and taking
seriously his words of truth.

With a stern but reassuring voice, our assistant principal

Classes lend to the picture the light of wisdom
and truth absorbed in four years of group learn-
ing. Somewhere, some time that wistful craving
for knowledge surges within our souls urging us
to search the mystery of life and the world. Steady
hands pour life,s unknown essence from test tube
to cylinder for measurement. Learning has made
us sure that if we but End the purpose of knowl-
edge, all else will be added to us. Knowledge
echoes to us in every hall, luring us to seek the joy
of understanding-we learn only so much as we
wish to hear.

As graduation nears, we prepare to pass the
sceptre of leadership into other hands. For us,
the year has been one of culmination and com-
pletion. We learned the importance of extending
the great heritage of F lora-leaving behind an
example to follow and a goal to strive for.
Soon we must leave this familiar world and
enter a world anew. And as we leave, a little of
our heart stays behind. Over the years our love
of Flora has grown to be very great and true, the
walls of Flora serve as silent reminders of all the
tears shed and laughter spent during the wonder-
ful years. Golden memories, forever to be
cherished, have become a lasting part of our
minds-memories never to be duplicated and
never to be replaced. Yes, it is now, when We
must wave a final lingering goodbye to a wonder-
ful part of our life gone by, that we learn-being
a senior is sadness.

Salane, Bobby Salane, Mark Archer, Steve Savitz, Ellen

Ismet will take all of this knowledge back to
Turkey, and it will help to give his people an in-

This next section imparts a sense of motion and
rhythm to the kaleidoscope of activity. Quick and
fleeting hands gracefully skim the notes of music
that find their way into the secret places of our
soul, while a sure and strong voice booms Words
of leadership and power. Unassuming girls, with
their inborn woman's skill, compose a constant
rhythm with a sewing needle, as their movements
bear grace and feminine charm. Mouths resound
the Words of oratorical genius and grow familiar
with the useful mode of communicated under-
standing. All these variations of potential skill
supplement the image of a school.

The campus, brightened by the red and blue
trash cans, buzzed with activity this year. Visitors
thronged our halls, as Student Council was host
to the S.C.A.S.C. Conference and the annual In-
ternational Day. Not only did Student Council
change the appearance of the school with trash
cans, but also it changed many discrepancies in
the constitution. Yet of these projects, one affects
Flora,s atmosphere above all. For if you looked
for the biggest group of girls. youid be sure to
find Student Councilis most important project-

Nettles mix fun with hard work as they check the banner
that will fly over the entrance to Falcon Drive announc-
ing International Day.
Five years ago, International Day was con-
ceived in the mind and spirit of the Flora student
body. Since that stroke of genius, it has been
nourished by the hopes, the pride, and the hard
work of every falcon. Each year-like a child-
this annual event has grown and has assumed a
distinctly unique character.
International Day this year was no exception.
Speakers and homeroom exhibits brought foreign
countries, customs, and people into new focus as
students soaked up visual knowledge. An elab-
orate assembly arrayed with colorful flags and
costumes displayed the seriousness and earnest
determination of the students to reach their goal
of world understanding. An Italian street dance
marked the close of an unforgettable day.
For the sophomores and juniors, this yearis
observance was a preview of International Days
to come. For the seniors, it is now a memory of
something special . . . International Day 1965.
Colorful lanterns are strung to add atmosphere to the
Italian street dance.

also accumulated many memories, friendships,
interests, and experiences as he completed the
difficult and sometimes seemingly impossible
work that lies behind each page.
It is the sincerest wish of each member of the

Anchor Club girls worked this year to clean
up not only the inside of the buildings but also
the outside. Working with the Key Club on the
Anchor Club-Key Club Assembly, Anchor Club
raised money for the Wee Care Nursery for re-

Key Club on the Anchor Club meetings, Anchor
Club managed to dress dolls for the Salvation
Army at Christmas, sponsored a Christmas carol-

Safety Week, helped Key Club with the Home-
coming float, and last, but not least, produced
Anchor Antics for the enjoyment of the students.

The A. C Flora Band
The bell rings and sixth period is here. As the
students settle down to their studies, the rhythmic
beat of the A. C. Flora band can be heard in the
distance. Slowly, yet with a steady pace, the band
marches up Falcon Drive. Out on the football
field under the sun, Flora's chief musical group
practices and drills in order to present to the pub-
lic a band of which Flora may be proud. There
are very few students whose hearts and voices
have not risen with the sound of Flora's Alma
Mater or 'cAre You a F alconlv ln a way our band
represents the mixed emotions of each maturing
student-the pulsation of happy, victorious times
at football games, the solemnity of installations,
and the loyalty Csometimes accompanied by

If education in the form of sports were ever
erased from the picture of our school, a great and
obvious space would remain. Much of our spirit
and "light for the falconv would wane and linger
only limply. A sport builds not only strength in
strong bodies but also strength in sound char-
acters. The iive-second decision made before a
ball is snapped, the face-to-face encounter with
defeat, and the perseverance of practice before
achievement are all lessons learned on the ath-
letic field. A chance to be equal, to release ex-
plodable energy, and to express determination,
all constitute the unending war to be the best-
"to be an athlete".

Fights for the Falcon
A lesson, not taught in any book or classroom,
is learned on our football Held every fall after-
noon. Boys, who have already lived through a day
of study and mental work, leave the gym and
lumber toward the practice field. Little spirit ap-
pears in their souls, however, when they hit that
Held, all the apathy vanishes. In a united circle,
the boys, all in red jerseys, radiate an air of
equality. Beginning with their exercises, these
players shout in an almost musical manner to the
count. They seem to express between the "one
. . . two . . . three . . . fourv the mutual reason
for their being on the drill field every afternoon.
As usual, Mr. Pinkerton cracks
a joke while giving instruc-
tions to his team. The 1964

B- quad Learns What Teamwork Can Mean
From our sister schools, Keenan and Crayton,
have come the ninth graders that train for the
B-Squad football team. To some of them this team
is their first link with Flora and high school life.
Taught the lessons of fairplay by their coaches,
the B-Squad players have expressed through their
hard work and determination the loyalty that they
already possess for "the falcon spirit."

Robin Ashmore and Billy Lowry, arrive for a game.

Aesthetic beauty is never lacking in any form
of art. Dignity and poise subdue the tones of color
in each piece of the picture, and beauty adds an
ease and gracefulness as the pieces fall into their
changeful places. A personable appearance at-
tracts the eye and urges it to look deeper for inner
beauty and quality. A sincere and gentle elegance
is the expression of this piece of Flora.

This last section adds the final and indispensa-
ble piece to the kaleidoscope of Flora. Its color
is one of great beauty and inconceivable bright-
ness-radiating into infinity a splendid magnifi-
cence. This piece is impossible to express for it
is four years of spirit, friendship, Worry, anticipa-
tion, joy, depression, victory, and defeat. It is our
grasping for the value and perspective of passing
things. It is the desire to know that the little things
are little and the big things are big, before it is
too late, to see things now as they will seem
forever-in the light of eternity. It is the intangi-
ble . it is ours.
