Built in the most advanced Techniques of 1925, the Administration Building has seen the
arrival and departure of thousands of students, many of them the parents of students at-
tending Garfield today.
This building knew intimately many young and eager faculty members, who gave of
themselves for the advancement and education of their students. Some are gone forever,
others, enriched in mind and experience, serve us as only the wise and kindly can serve.
The Administration Building, known to all as the 200 Building, saw the birth and growth
of Garfield's time-honored clubs and traditions, of sports and socials, of triumphs and defeats.
Yes, the Administration Building as we knew it is gone, but not the progressive and
modern spirit of Garfield High School. Handicapped as we were, through this school year
of 1954-1955, our accomplishments are notable.
Here are the highlights of Garfield's activities and successes. Here, also, you will meet
the students, faculty, and friends who made these fine things possible. You will find that the
students are exemplifying the famous words of James A. Garfield:
"There is no American youth however poor, however humble, orphan though he may be,
who may not rise through all grades of society and become the crown, the glory, the pillar
of his state . . . provided he have . . .
A CLEAR HEAD
A TRUE HEART
A STRONG ARM

ception of what the new Admin-
istration Building will look like
when it is completed.

Aw . ,
Throughout Garfield there exists an intangible feeling which every student and faculty
member is extremely proud of - our school spirit. You can see it, and you can always feel
its presence in Garfield's atmosphere. Each person may express it in his own way - sometimes
in a group, sometimes the school as a whole. The most important thing is that we do express it.
The Spirit of Garfield has a special meaning for the Seniors, for it is as a Senior that we
begin to realize how soon we will be leaving the closeness and security of the past twelve years.
Friends and classmates will part after receiving their diplomas, to enter varied fields, and soon
will be on their own. But there is one thing they will take with them wherever they go in their
paths of life, the prevailing Spirit of Garfield.
Who can ever forget the thrill of seeing the entire student body cheering and urging their
team to victory? Who can suppress a surge of pride at seeing the student body rise en masse at
an assembly to greet a visitor? Even the remoddeling of our Administration Building didn't stop
us. No, we went on with our usual activities. The noise may have been loud and the air dusty,
but after a few days, most of us took it in our stride. These are truly great examples of school
To this school spirit - the Spirit of Garfield High School, which exists about us always
- we, the Annual Staff of 1955, proudly dedicate this yearbook.
