The first crowded days of Iune . . . loafing in the sun on
the front steps . . . hurried cramming for exams . . . and finally
- graduation. Everything came so quickly that there was little
time for reminiscing. But all of us felt, in these last warm days,
a nostalgia quite distinct from our habitual spring fever. Perhaps
we will forget the sentence structure, the theorems, the speed
tests and quizzes. But long after these have faded into the
past, we will remember the thrill of the first touchdown on a
crisp Saturday in the fall . . . joking with our favorite teachers
. . . that sinking feeling before exams . . . the satisfaction of
having done all our homework just once . . . and leaving school
on the last day, with the green lawn shadowed by the elms, and
the white columns shining in the sun.
We are more than a little sad as we look over the past four
years - and we are proud, too. Sad, because we are leaving
behind us old friends and pleasant times - and proud because

afternoons after school, we could hear the sharp commands of
the Student Training Corps. Pre-flight classes and war courses
were added to our curriculum. A Student War Board worked
to coordinate the war effort of the school. And this small but
important war effort has been a foundation for a greater under-
standing of our responsibility to our country in this unprece-
So it is with pride, with assurance and with faith in what
the future will bring that we graduate in this year of 1943. We
are proud of our school: and in this crisis, when the future of
our country rests in our hands, we will endeavor to make our
school equally proud of us.
