Green, signifying spring and youth, a new life, reminds us that we, the youth of today, are about to enter a life far different from the one we are enjoying at present. Now we are living under the care and protection of parents and teachers on whom we are dependent not only for physical wants, but also for guidance and encouragement. As graduates, we shall be free and independent as we strive to reach our goals, engineering, nursing, army, industry. We shall be adults trying to make our lives rich and honorable, rich, not in the sense of wealth, but achievement, happiness, friends, good fortune, honorable in that we shall endeavor to do work that will reflect praise and respect not only on ourselves but also on everyone who helped prepare us for our new life. Silver, a hard, lustrous metal, reminds us that our a.mbitions, our shining goals, will be reach- ed only through hard work. We will encounter many barriers, but, like silver, we must be ductile and malleable and adjust ourselves to the successes and failures that comprise life. Classmates, may our beautiful green and silver serve as an inspiration in the future. --Ruth Cyzauskas Qyllass ffflluww' We. the class of '53, have chosen as our class flower the beautiful and fragrant gardenia. The spotless white of the gardenia signifies purity, a virtue which we must have in our daily thoughts, words, and actionsg a virtue which we must not only possess ourselves, but also must endeavor to instill in others. The dark green leaves, unnoticed and unpretentious, stand for humility, a quality which must ac- company true success. If we can remain humble in spite of success, our achievement will be more noteworthy. The soft touch of the gardenia ought to inspire us to be polite and mannerly at all times. on all occasions. The smoothness of the petals ought to encourage us to live amicably and harmoniously with our fellow men. Just as the gardenia is well known for its fragrance, which is an unusual but pleasing one, so must we be and do better than the ordinary person because more will be expected of us as high school graduates. Seniors, let us always aim to live up to the high standards which we set for ourselves when we chose the gardenia as our class flower. - -Michael Hynes Mass Elluiiu To us, the class of 1953, our motto, WE FINISH TO BEGIN, brings an elation and a sadness, an elation because we have reached one of the high rungs on the ladder that we have been climbing for the past twelve years, a sadness because we leave teachers, classmates, friends. Our lives thus far have been a molding stage during which the rough spots on the road were smoothed over by lov- ing care and guidance, a period which has prepared us for our future economic and social life. 1 l 5 I 2 Our slow, faltering steps on the first day of school, our first trip away from home, and our en- trance into high school were only minor steps compared with the one we are about to take today, a step which leaves us with a link of cherished memories--memories of happy days in the sheltering arms of home and the guiding hands of schoolg memories of patient teachers who endured our pranks and listlessness in the hope of sowing the seed of knowledge in our mindsg memories of sports events, dances, and parties planned for our entertainmentg memories of the friends we met here whom we may never see again. The new life we are about to begin is in the society of a fast-moving world. It is a democracy in which men are judged by their accomplishments rather than their background. It behooves us then, class of '53, to further develop those qualities of personality and character which we possess. I know that some among us will achieve higher gains than othersg I trust that all will endeavor to be worthy of the time and work involved in the development of our abilities. Let us realize that suc- cess if determined not by great victories but by the life a man leads and the strength he shows in the face of everyday living. A new life awaits usg we take a step across the threshold into a blazing dawn, a dawn which symbolizes our awakening as individuals in a world where dreams are realized only by genuine effort. - -Jean Tagler Faire wells May God bless you with good luck, happiness, and success in all your undertakings. --Anne Fallon We hope that in the years to come you will not forget the friends and pleasant times you had in your four-year stay at this high school. - - Ludwig Konzman You are leaving not only your classmates but many underclassmen who will feel the absence of your friendliness. --Delores Kozlevcar May you have a pleasant journey through life, a journey filled with dreams come true. --Jo Ann Swetter Remember, seniors, that good things do not come easily, that the realization of a desire is not al- ways what we expect, and that success is achieved only by hard work. --Margaret McGrath, Ann Romanczyk May your journey over the jagged rocks of life become smoother and easier as time goes by. --Joan Kersnowski The sophomores hope that you will win honors for yourselves in the future as you did for the high school while you were here. - -Joann Kameen Class of '53, may your accomplishments in life surpass your achievements here. --Anonymous Jane Knight Donald Swetter Helen Wysocki Morgan Cox Donald Swetter 0 70-79 cwpm 60-69 cwpm 50-59 cwpm 40-49 cwpm SC HOLAR SHIPS 3-year 4-year 4-year 3-year 1-year COMPETENT TYPISTS Paul Petrus Ruth Cyzauskas Donald Swetter Edward Franceski Barbara Kutch Dorothy Debevec Michael Kost Maryalyce Feddock Jean Tagler Jo Ann Williams Marian Gruden Cecilia Seprosky Leona Wojcik STENOGR APHY WINNERS Hahnemann State Sch.
