What does the World of Tomorrow hold in store
for those who leave their school careers? This question
is uppermost in the minds of many thousands of high
school graduates and parents of those graduates.
The answer is vague, but gradually there is taking
shape in this chaotic transititional period the beginnings
of a new era.
Mankind has yet to go far in new fields of endeavor.
Research has shown that there are possibilities opening
up in many lines which had here-to-for scratched the
surface. The necessities, and comforts, and luxuries
of today are not those of tomorrow, because these
very research laboratories are creating such things
as will bring new demands on manufacturers.
What does this mean to us? It means that the
traditions of our alma mater will better fit us to
participate in these up and coming activities. Not
that we will be skilled technicians, but that the train-
ing, the contacts, and the mental stimulants are de-
cidedly a part of the discipline whereby one can
govern his own life in a much better way.
As we go out into the World of Tomorrow we must
hold our heads up, we must keep our eyes ever forward,
and we must hold to that optimism so ably expressed
in the line, " Hope springs eternal in the human

The realm of sports has long held a popular and important
place in high school. Mr. Robert Thomas, our basketball coach,
has been untiring in his ejorts to keep G. A. R. High School in
the front ranks of the athletics of our community.
Not only has he been successful in coaching the basketball
teams, but he has also been unstinting in his eforts to encourage
young men to strive for higher aims in the World of Tomorrow.
He has also instilled, in both classroom and gymnasium, the facts
that the healthy way of life is the happiest way of life, and that
good sportsmanship in games is conducive of good sportsmanship
To Mr. Thomas, we, the class of 1940, take pleasure in
dedicating this volume of the Garchive.
