Life marching ever onward will force slowly
back into dim recesses of our minds the now all
important present whose lasting record the '38
staff offers in this publication. May it serve to
prepetuate the memories of our high school life-
the period in which we first tried our wings and
rejoiced to find them safe.
The shaded walks, the trees, the lawn,
The towers spired-tipped and grey stone walls,
The slated roof when touched by red'ning dawn,
The beauty seen when first the snow Hakes falls
Are all of Fordson High.
And seniors like to think
That we have left a shadow on the walls,
And that our echoes ring to form a link
Between our class and Fordson's new-filled halls.
It fills our dreams, this thought.
John Gilbert Hocking
COMM ENCEM ENT THOUGHTS
Perhaps a few-
Not real, not deep-
For we are youth
With new worlds to conquer.
Yes, those too.
Heartfelt, but confident
Of meeting again.
You see, we are youth
With new worlds to conquer.
A man may be afraid.
It is when fear halts attempts
That he is a coward.
So we step fearlessly, bravely forward
To conquer new worlds.
Yes, but with idealism underneath,
For to the world we show
A cynic's smile
As we are told
That it awaits us.
Deep down, though,
We are youth with worlds to conquer.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
FORDSON BOARD OF EDUCATION
The Board has never failed in maintaining a desire on the part of our
citizenship, for what seemed best and most worthwhile in educational
opportunities for our youth. This attitude has contributed greatly to the
happiness of our entire population. It has been the beacon light to point
to more encouraging signs when discouragement seemed ever ready to
To recount the milestones in the climb of Fordson's educational
system to the present enviable status would take the pages of a sizable im-
portant part in this progress.
The adoption of definite policies and the appraisal of school activities
by the Board in line with modern educational thought and procedure has
produced an atmosphere of desired proticiency in the teaching corps and
auxiliary employees which accepts nothing short of an approach to per-
fection anrl the giving of the best each one possesses.
The development of excellent courses of study, fine buildings and
equipment establishment of special departments for the physically and
mentally handicapped, providing advantages for adults in obtaining citizen-
ship papers and opportunity to continue their education, and many other
plans to the future advantage of the people of Dearborn have been the
dominant factors prompting the activities.
The present Board of Education consists of:

Fellow-Members of theplass of '38: Q
Upon graduation day, june 24, 1938, we will
have completed our high school careers. We will no
longer be active membersof the school which we
regarded with such great respect at students. We
will no longer be able to support Fordson as stud-
ents, but only as alumni.
Let us remain loyal supporters of F ordson High
as alumni and not return and try to relive our high
school days. Let us go forward to the goal which
we are determined to reach. Let us keep our mem-
ories of Fordson locked forever in our hearts and
serve our school by traveling on, paying tribute to
what she has done for us by accomplishing some-
thing of which she may be proud.
In conclusion I wish you, my friends, all the
success in the world, and I hope you will arrive at
the goal which you have set out to attain, '
May the memory of the graduation'class of
june, 1938, remain forever' bright-. in the annals of
Fordson High School. vs. ,y
Senior Class .. '
Sincerely, , . '
Henry Rogers, President
