This abun- dant life transcends self and stretches out into the broader realm of human relations where men live helpfully and joyously to- gether. This spirit of brotherly love and good- will did not die on the Cross, for men, down through the ages, have caught the import of the teachings of the lowly Nazarene and have striven arduously to effect that abun- dant life Education in alliance with religion science and industry is contributing its share toward the realization of this objective Educators are concerned with the development of a care fully integrated individual who will be an asset to himself and to the group of which he is a part Thus we as teachers aim to guide the in dividual into right channels when he thinks when he works and when he relaxes ln short our efforts are directed toward the develop ment of the pupil as a whole Perhaps dear reader if you follow the ac tivities of Co Edna and Co Eddie seniors typi cal of the one hundred and seventy seven Douglass graduates of February l947 you will see in operation the principle Enriched activ ities as they contribute to pupil development and worthy group membership 1 1 1 I 1 I - 1 ' 1 1 1 ' - - I I - 1 . . . . . ,, . . - ll Recd ng left to rght Jean Wse Asst T eas Wm Bea a T eas A thur Mu phy V P es Columb 5 Modl Pes Ra o a Schuyler Sec Jean Weaver Asst Sec Charles Tller Bus Mg KM ss g from pctue lrvun Cha les Asst Bus Mgr!

Our only answer is this we shall go forward This is not an age of stability but an age in which men must move constantly and rapidly This is a time when stu dents must compete with fast moving planes and trains ln this era we realize that we must move swiftly yet surely to keep pace with such great scientific dis coveries as the atomic bomb This is an age when we must move together in close harmony with all races and nations Step by step we shall move carrying with us all the knowledge power and force that we have stored up during our X years of schooling. Our science will aid us in understanding great scientific dis- coveries our Spanish and French will help us to be better acquainted with our for eign neighbors our history will enlighten our future by interpreting to use import ant acts of the past The time has come for us to endeavor to the utmost of our ability to give to the world the best that we have We dedicate ourselves in our small way to help make America a better place in which to live This can be done only through tolerance faith understanding and the desire to go on With the above thoughts in mind the class of February 47 moves forward This is our spirit This is our destiny We shall not fail THE INEVITABLE BENEFITS CAROLYN owsrsis sMiTH Upon entering Douglass High School new students automatically wonder whether they will derive anything of value from the school As a former student of Douglass l can say with pride that they will get many things that will be useful to them in community life First there are the benefits that are afforded by the assembly programs held in the school auditorium and which are given for the specific purpose of teaching assembly manners ln the assemblies the student learns to be courteous to the speaker to applaud correctly and at the right time to share his talents and to ap preciate the talents of others practices that will serve him well in community i e Then there are the clubs which also tend to develop the student into a good citizen They offer opportunities for par 63 ticipating in the club activities for shar ing experiences and for working together for the good of the group all of which are worthwhile benefits The pleasant teacher pupil relationship and the pupil pupil relationship found the various class rooms provide interesting experiences in getting along with others ln addition to the benefits already men tioned the school library with its full time librarian offers training that helps the pupil to use more wisely the library facilities in the community lt is in th library that he gets a chance to read and to think independently Yes Douglass Senior Junior High School has many benefits to offer to its students but students must be wide awake and alert if they are to profit by what the school offers 1 1 1 1 1 .

Ballet has existed over 2,000 years and has never lost its popularity, but instead, it has steadily gained in favor. Perhaps the most simple definition of ballet is a series of solo and concerted dances with the mimetic actions accompanied by music and scenic accessories, telling a story. Ballet began in England in the early l9th century but was elaborated upon by the Russians in l850 The new form combined romanticism and realism and appealed to the imaginations of the gen eral public Texas has staked her claim X to ballet and has taken first place in the ballet world. The most important qualifications of ballet artists are: accuracy, exactness, co- ordination, perseverance and patience. Some ballet artists who have gained in- ternational acclaim are: Anna Pavlova and Nijinsky of earlier times, and Alicia Markova and Sono Osato of the present. Among the most popular ballets are' Les Sylphides Carnival Swan Lake Giselle and Pas De Quatre These ballets were made famous by the excellent roles which were played by the stars HOW STUDY OF ART DEVELOPS CHARACTER PEARL SEWELL Art is not merely drawing it is anything made or done by man that affects one so that he feels or sees beauty in it A education is valuable to students for t helps them to enjoy more completely the world in which they are a part and to use art intelligently in their surroundings In order to understand the functions of art one should become acquainted with the artist whose emotions and experience highly sensitive he is more receptive to impressions and is eager to express him self by putting his ideas in a permanent form One of the best ways the general public can understand his experiences and possibly share his feelings in through the artists productions Because the artist has a joyful reaction to nature when painting a landscape he tries to capture and reflect his experience with nature 64 the emotional level There are many heroes celebrated in art and their noble virtues can influence our own character Among the wide range of pictures presented by art for study are subjects from mythology history and scenes from the Bible church history and literature Also greater appreciation for beauty may be developed from a special ized picture study As the noted author Albert Edward Bailey said What is the use of all this aesthetic thrilling this philosophical un derstonding this broadening of experience vicariously through imagery unless it en hances life as a whole Personally my two years experience in the Art Major Course has supplied me with knowledge of expression and appreciation that w ll serve me well in my prospective vocation .

Many who are in a position to know take the latter view They point out that the study of 66 human nature though lagging behind in dustnal and scientific wealth has fostered this new emphasis on the individual per sonality They now question the value of a formal education especially on a sec ondary level which does not include the opportunity of the development of the hu man personality They see in extra cur ricula activities an avenue through which can be developed skills and aptitudes not discoverable in a curriculum of the bare three R s We think we have little difficulty in agreeing that extra curricula activities in many instances tend to make studies which are generally boring and dry much more palatable There is little doubt to day that such activities can and ultimately do broaden our visions and enable us to comprehend and enjoy th fr its of a highly technical and industrial society it , l fs J A us, ' 2 . ty O , . ,Q v , . .c L I' I l V C f ' If ' r , f ' ' T ' . o g, ' ' ' 1 X ' A i I, , , I u 11 - - - - - I - , . n ' .

Some personalities are by far more positive than others. They stamp a lasting impression in one's mind. There- fore, how can the February class of i947 ever forget such forceful personalities as: Marcia Boddie so talented Margaret Curtis so lady like Theodore Williams so gentlemanly Jeanne Weaver so ioviai Ellen Tavares so parliamentary Thomas Jones so gallant X dramatic so agreeable scholarly understanding so infantile Barbara Kiah so Peggy Tilghman Ann Venture so Ellen Dolvey so Carson Johnson Wendell Johnson so unassuming Ramona Schuyler so studious Ruth Jackson so modest We trust that these forceful personali- ties will live on and on in the years that lie ahead of us and that they wii add spice to the life of the world just as they have to Douglass SURVEYING THE GRADS Morsitsz weisssteia The old proverb A book cannot be iudged by its cover applies to the grad uates of February l947 Encountering the members of the class daily one would never know the latent talents that exist among them Numerous among the grads are song sters Those who have appeared on vari ous occasions and possess melodious voices are Jean Weaver Elmira Mason Doris Besses Ellen Tavares John Cook Ollie Singleton John Wells Naomi Oliver and William Culbreath Playing the piano is a masterful art which some graduates have achieved The skilled pianists of the group are Ell ri Dolvey Maizie Johns Doris Freeland and Marcia Boddie The latter has been the accompanist for most of the auditorium programs as well as the opera The Pied Piper Previous graduates have excelled in this field and have inspired some of 67 us to become renown Among the remaining talents and skills of the class may be noted an acrobat an orator a dancer artists and seamstresses Barbara Kiah the class orator has won two declamation contests during her stay at Douglass Students who may de desig noted as the artists are Pearl Sewell Wil liam Jessups Irving Charles and Thad deus Quarles Works of these students connection with various activities and some have won art contests Thaddeus uarles is also a ballet dancer and Wil liom Jessups is an acrobat The class seamstresses Gertrude Morrel and Lucille Alston have been observed often because of the very becoming and stylish garments they have worn lt is evident that the talents and skills of the graduates will enable us in the future to become great assets to our race . ii - - i l I II ' ' Il 4 . .
