THE STUDENT BODY OF
FORTUNA UNION HIGH SCHOOL
In today's world of conflict we should stop to consider how fortunate we are
in that we are not a part of this turmoil and upheaval.
Never has there been a more appropriate time for us to realize the effect
of mutual dependence of countries desirous of preserving peace, as are North,
South, and Central America. This spirit of cooperation among the Americas
can best be fulfilled through a belief in the ideals which these countries hold
The elimination of suspicion and jealousy is one great step toward the
founding of mutual understanding. Barriers of doubt and apprehension which
often exist between powerful nations are lowered by neighborly trade negotia-
tions, the foundation of Pan-Americanism. This is a fundamental step in the
building of a permanent peace.
We have chosen Pan-Americanism as the theme of our book' in the hope
that the ideals of cooperation which are suggested by it will encourage and
inspire those of us who are soon to assume in full the responsibilities and
privileges of citizens of the United States of America.
With this as the theme of our annual, the 1940 Megaphone is presented
to you with the good wishes of the staff.

G. J. BADURA
Another school year, rich in tradition, friendship, and achievement, is about
to close. ln reflecting upon the activities ofthe year we cannot help expressing
appreciation for the cooperative spirit that has prevailed throughout the year.
We note with satisfaction the growing seriousness of purpose, the common
pride in our school, and the willingness to support that which is for the best
interest of all.
We congratulate the members of the Megaphone staff upon their work.
The desire to record the history ot the school year in word and picture is highly
commendatory. We congratulate those individuals and organizations of the
school whose unfailing loyalty has contributed to the success ot the yea r.
To those students who leave us to take their place in the fields beyond
high school, we wish good fortune. It is our hope that their high school days
have served as a means of insuring happiness and security.
