El-EE BH 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 breast." fr -L ' nfs ' I . l 5 Un Loan flflfo-Je! . . tri m Page Administration . 5 Seniors. . . 8 Underclasses. 29 Activities ..,...... . 39 Student Government Organizations. 40 Publications . . .,.. . 46 Entertainment . 48 Clubs . . 54 Athletics. 65 Boys . . 66 Girls. . 73 The Calendar . . 76 Thref

Eacllczctflorz. - - .ff 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 in life. To Mr. Thomas, we, the class of 1940, take pleasure in dedicating this volume of the Garchive.
