THE CLASS OF 1945
RGE'l'OXN'N TUXVNSHII' HIGH SCHOOL
ltll 151 151511 1111
On the evening of October 3, 1944, grim news swept swiftly through our
community as we learned of the tragic accident which cost the life of our school-
mate and friend,
GEORGE MIKEL CAMARATA
He was born November 24, 1927, at Midway. He attended grade school at
Edison School in Westville and graduated in 1941. ln September of that year he
enrolled in Georgetown Township High School as a member of the class of 19-45,
and was engaged in the activities of his graduation year at the time of his death.
Though his span of life seems short, all who knew him remember that George
enjoyed life to the full and that his few years were replete with activity. His
school record portrays him as outstanding in sports and dramatics as well as
scholastically. None of us will ever forget his role in the junior play, "Gabriel,
Blow Your Horn," or his brilliant performance on the basketball floor. His spark-
ling personality, which won him many friends, added to our enjoyment of the
school dances and other social activities. His leaving has only served to underline
in our memories those traits of character we most admired.

SEN IURS Ulf' '-15:
ln September, 1941, a group ot' 112 freshmen appeared on the seene at
Georgetown High School to begin a four-year chapter of their lives. No doubt
most of them were hopeful and ambitious to eomplete that ehapter successfully.
'llliose four years are now coming to an end and you are the 59 members of that
original group, seniors who will probably receive the coveted reward of graduation.
'llhese have been momentous years, not only to you, but to the nation and to
the world, as they have been the time during which we have been engaged in the
greatest war ot' all time. 'llhis, to a great degree, aeeounts for the faet that
easualties in your ranks have been so great. Several of your elassmates of Sep-
tember, 19-ll, have entered our :Xrnied liorees. Many others have answered the
eall to assist with the varied activities that are related to the war.
.Xlthough this has been a serious period of your lives. as it has been a eritieal
period in the lives ot' all of us. l trust that as the years go by the heartaehes of
the times will fade from your memories, leaving only the sneeesses you have
experieneed, the happy assoeiations you have had, and the inspiration you have
acquired from your work, from you friends, and from your teachers.

OUR SENIOR YEAR
When we come to the end of our senior year,
And we sit alone in deep thought,
Then we start to think of the past four years
And the joys that those years have brought.
Remember, when freshmen, how meek we were,
When sophomores, as big as the restg
And as for our junior and senior years,
VVe consider them the best.
Well, this is the end of our senior year,
Near the end of high school, too,
But before we leave, we would like to voice
Our thanks, G. H. S., to you:
You have taught us the way of democracy,
And shown us that we must face
Our problems with a strong and steadfast will,
If we are to win the race.
DO YOU REMEMBER???
The tough time we had finding our way around as green freshies? My good-
ness, but this was a big place, then!
How large our freshman class was? But Uncle Sam plays no favorites-look
at the size of our class now!!
Our football, basketball and track stars? And oh! those G. l. haircuts!
How our class started fads? Slacks in school, long red stockings, and bright
plaid "cowboy" shirts.
The thrill we felt at our first formal party, the Junior-Senior banquet? And
how hard we worked for its success!
Our senior pictures? Nuff said!
The assignments Miss Rees and Mr. VValker so generously gave during our
senior year? Not to mention term papers!
The one tvvirling corps made up entirely of girls of the class of '45 that
was trained by the little moustache man, Mr. Houts?
The swell teachers who left before we did: Mr. and Mrs. Cole, Miss Ehredt,
Miss Hardesty, Mr. Houts, Miss Paul, Mr. Richard, Miss VVright, Mr. Masters,
Miss Jensen, Miss Knusman, Mr. Yarbrough, and Miss Tipton?
The time Mr. Yarbrouglfs house burned and we chipped in to do our part?
"Dike'sl' cheery smile and time sense of humor?
The loss of Mr. Vlfoodruff and George Camarata, our dear friends?
All the boys who left during our senior year to enter Uncle Sam's college
of sore feet and aching backs and "l'll VValk Alone" became the girls' tearful
All the hard work Mrs. Snyder did on the Buffalo? And how the poor little

Listen, children, and you shall hear
From the heppest hep-cats of the year.
Full of pep and man-alive
VVe're really solid on the jive.
In studies, too, we're in the groove,
Anticipating the teacher's move.
No wonder she acts somewhat perplexed
And questions what will happen next!
Yet everyone knows--
The juniors always come through!
In activities of various kinds
VVe have the keenest of all minds.
In classes welre the very best
And in brilliance head the rest.
Our banquet this year will really be slick,
A good time for every big bruiser and chick.
The junior play, "And Came the Spring,"
Was what we call "the r--e-a-l thingf'
The juniors always come through!
And do we know it?
You bet we do!

GEURGETOVVN 34-CHARLESTON 0
The Buffaloes opened their 1944 season under the lights at Charleston against
a team which had been tough for the Buffaloes for two years. The game was
highlighted by the sparkling running of Austin and Lewis. The Charleston lads
were unable to get their offense into high gear and were snowed under by a 28-0
count at half time. Parke, Perkins, Lopinski, Lewis and Austin all featured in the
touchdown parade and Buckellew tallied live place kicks i11 succession.
GEORGETOVVN 13W-OAKWOOD 0
A stubborn, speedy Oakwood team came to Georgetown and flashed power
on their opening series of plays but failed to gain after this initial display and the
Buffaloes gathered momentum as the game progressed. The Buffaloes scored four
touchdowns but lost two of them because fouls were committed on the scor-
GEORGETOWN 404-SHERIDAN, INDIANA O
For the iirst time in tive years the Sheridan, indiana, team could not match
the Buffaloes. Although the Sheridan lineup included a line that outweighed the
Buffaloes, they could offer but little resistance to the hard charges of the locals.
Buckellew's running was outstanding.
GEORGETONVN 6--A-GARFIELIJ, TERRE HAUTE 7
Georgetown lost a heartbreaker to the Terre Haute boys on a bright October
day which was ideal for football. The heartbreak came when the Buffaloes scored
their second and winning touchdown, on a pass from Lopinski to Parke, only
to have the touchdown play called back because of backheld in motion. That play
turned victory into defeat for the Buffaloes, as they were held scoreless afterward
and lost their first home game since 1941.
GEORGETOWN 38-MARTINSVILLE 7
An alert, scrappy Buffalo team turned the misplays of their opponents into
touchdowns for themselves as their first three touchdowns came with Martinsville
in possession of the ball. Georgetown kicked off to Martinsville who carried the
ball on a series of otfta-ckle smashes to the Buffaloes' two-yard line where a fum-
bled ball was caught by Perkins and he was not touched for the 98 yards to pay
dirt. Georgetown again kicked off to Martinsville who let the ball roll into the
end zone and forgot to get on it. Lopinski, alert Buffalo quarter, downed the
ball for the second touchdown. The Buffaloes' third score came when Austin
intercepted a Martinsville pass and ran through the entire Martinsville team to
the goal. From then on, it became a rout.
GEGRGETOWN 0-fHO0PESTON 0
Honeywell Fieldg a beautiful Armistice day, a strong John Greer teamg and
a scrappin' Buffalo squad-folks, those ingredients mixed well to provide a
"thriller-diller" game between those ancient rivals, Hoopeston and Georgetown.
lt was a battle all the way. Each team had its scoring opportunity and each in
turn was stopped by an alert defense. The tackling of Cook and Sanders for the
Buffaloes was outstanding.
GEORGETOVVN 7--VVESTVILLE 12
It was "just one of those things" when the Buffaloes lost their second
game to their arch rivals, the VVestville Tigers. The wind was terrific, the day
was cold, and the field was muddy but the game was hot all the way to the
last whistle. The Tigers, with Captain Hrazas showing the way on long passes,
scored during the second quarter. The Buffaloes came back at halftime confident
that they could overcome the 6-0 deficit but were shocked by the second Westville
score which came when Morelield, Westville wingback, caught a long, desperate
pass from Rrazas while covered by three Buffalo defense men. The pass was of
the variety known as Hhope pass" and the catch was of the "lucky brand." That
straw broke the camel's back, for the Buffaloes started to work and shortly there-
after scored on a pass from Lopinski to Parke. They were headed for their
second touchdown with still some four minutes to go when Austin fumbled on
VVestville's ll-yard line and the Buffalo hopes went glimmering. lt was the second
loss in seven years to the Tigers and a typical VVestville-Georgetown game in
which each boy on both teams gave his very best. The running of Lewis was
outstanding for Georgetown.

. HENRY LOPINSKI-SENIKJII. Quarterback. Captain.
! Second Letter.
, Captain "Hank" led a fighting team well, called sig-
. nals, did the punting, most of the passing and played
l safety. Quite an assignment for a 145-pounder, but he
i did all of it well. lt will be hard to find a boy who
t can handle the quarterback chores on the T-forma-
Q tion with the ability that Hank displayed. We will cer-
F tainly miss him.
JACK SANlYJERS+SENIfJll. Critter. Second Letter.
Jack was switched from end to center and the change
was profitable, for Jack upheld our tradition for hav-
ing outstanding pivot men. He backed up the line de-
fensively and was seldom fooled by opponents. He
f was especially strong on pass defense and could be
relied upon to snag a few of our opponents' passes
during the game.
BRONSTON AUSTIN-SEN1oR. Left Halfbark. Sec-
"Bronko" was the fastest man on the team and a

go with him.
IOE LEWIS-SEN1oR. Right Hulfbavk. Second Letter.
"Billy" was an excellent runner and a strong tackling
halfback. He was the best runner on the Held Thanks-

Buffalo football player. liilly will soon become eight-
een and has already left school and enlisted in the
Navy. Our best wishes go with him. '
JUNIOR PARKE+SENIflR. lfnd. Second Letter.
l- "Inlay" was shifted from regular center to end and
from this spot he played well. Was a good pass re-

small for an end. Caught the touchdown pass at West-

KEITH SANDY-Samoa, Tarlelr. Second Letter.
"Sandy" was a big, rugged tackle whose ability to
movc made him a good blocker on offense. He had a
knee injury in mid-season which handicapped him
somewhat. Played a bang-up game Thanksgiving.
DEAN SAIITH-SENIIJR, End, First Letter.

joe did not come out for football until his senior
year but when you could hear the tackle on the side-

those fine athletes who could be tough on the Field of

which characteristic won the Sportsmanship Trophy
LLOYD LARIISERT-SENIUR, Cfzmrd. First Letter.
Another boy who waited till his senior year to play.
Was a hard, fast-charging guard who played cou-
sistently throughout the season. His blocking was only
fair but his tackling was sharp and decisive. Now
signed up to play in Uncle Sam's Navy.

piled up eleven touchdowns. He was big, tast, and
ran hardest when the gain was most needed. XYas one

TOM KCjXvANlC-,lllNll7ll, Tarlclv. First Letter.
This year was Tom's first in football. He began slowly
and showed little promise but as the season pro-
gressed he grew better with each week and played
brilliantly in the last two games. His choice as Cap-
tain for 1945 will give the Buffloes a clean-cut, natural
leader whose leadership will go a long way in pro-
ducing a successful team for 1945. Good luck, Tom-
PAUL hlAlQTlN-JITNIIJR. Tuvlclc. Second Letter.
A big, fast, strong tackle. Fastest charging line man
on the team. Injured his knee just before the
Thanksgiving game and did not get to see action in
that game. His loss will be keenly felt next year for
he is now eighteen and has enlisted in the Navy. VVe
will miss him but we wish him luck in his new and
more important assignment.
BILL BklCKl'Zl,l.,l':xVmJl'NItlli. llrzlflmrk. First Letter.
"Buck" was somewhat of an in-and-out runner this
season. ln some games he showed brilliance and in
other games he seemed to lack decisiveuess. lie can
pass creditably, punt fairly well and tackle with the
best of 'em. lf his blocking and running get more con-
sistent, look out for him-he'll be one tough bark
GEORGE SNYIJER-j1'NloR. Guard. Second Letter.
George is light but fast and a hard worker who al-
ways giyes his best. Should be quite a strong player
next year. Hope he puts on a few pounds before next
September. VVatch for him next season.

The only sophomore to earn a letter. john played cen-
ter and was very steady at that spot for a sophomore
boy. ln the latter part of the season he was shifted
to halfbaek and it was there he found himself. He
runs hard, spins well and is tough to bring down.

"Inlay" was our leading scorer for the year although the smallest man on the
the team. He was a lighter, a clean athlete and played his best every minute
of every game. Ilis weakness was in his defensive play but his aggressive
play offset this many fold.

'llhe Sportsmanship Cup, lirst awarded in 1928, now carries the names of
seventeen boys who have played on Georgetown football teams and who have
been selected year by year because of the line type of sportsmanship displayed.
'llhe name added to the cup for the season of 1944 was that of hloe Cook.
'llo be selected by the committee for this honor a boy must have shown il
good attitude, in play and practice, toward his coach, his teammates, and his

lior the tirst time in more than a dozen years Georgetown won the champion-
ship of Vermilion County in track. Due chielly to the performance of Rob Van
Loon who scored three first places, the Buffaloes ran away with the meet.
'llhe track team had a busy season, entering dual meets with Paris, Catlin,
Oakwood, Ridgefarm and Fairmount and also two quadrangular meets-one with
Catlin, University High of Urbana, and Potomac and another at Danville with
Catlin, Westville and Danville. ln the quadrangular meet at Danville the Buffaloes
scored more points than the other three teams combined and marked up both
tirst and second places in seven of the twelve events.
The squad also participated in the Urbana Relays and Paris Relays and
Van Loon ran in the District Meet at Monticello. All in all it was the strongest
team to represent Georgetown i11 many years, losing only one meet, the Paris
Dual Meet, which was won by Paris early in the season.

George Snyder, Bob lfloggess, and Henry Lopinski. Bob Boggess and Scott Brown are Co-
Captains for 1945, having been elected in place of Captain Billy joe Lewis when he left
school to enlist in the Navy. Not much has been done in track at the time this book goes
to press but the large squad of 50 boys pictured above is working hard to make ready to
defend our county championship. Several meets are on the schedule beginning with the

For the first time in the history of old G. H. S. six cheerleaders were elected.
These girls worked well together as a group and proved that they could keep up
the morale and pep behind our boys in football and in basketball.
Here is a new tongue twister that was added to G. H. S. yells:
Rah! Rah! Sssss Boom llah! Georgetown! Georgetown!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Although the old G. H. S. "Loyalty, proved faithful, a new, clever song
proved to be very popular, too.

As one of their special projects during the second semester, the Home Ee III
class circulated a questionnaire to iind out what the guys and gals of G. H. S.
considered hep date bait.
We discovered that both boys and girls like for their dates to Hbe them-
selves," good-mannered, well-groomed, talkative, and active in sports. The most
objections were to smoking, telling off-colored stories, flirting, giggling, and
dishing out a line.
You would expect the boys to agree that the girl should be ready to go on
a date when her escort arrives, but, surprisingly enough, the girls think so, too.
Boys and girls agreed that the boy should open the doors for his girl and help her
with her coat. Of course the girls voted in favor of the boys bringing candy
and flowers for a date but the boys split their votes on that question-they
decided that sometimes they should and sometimes they shouldn't.

Several of our boys are returning to us while receiving treatment for wounds
received in combat duty. We welcome them into our midst again and trust that
their recovery may be swift and complete. Anxiety for those reported missing in
action and imprisoned clouds our rejoicing over the tremendous victories now
being gained after discouraging reverses.
One of the most heartening events occurred when Howard Morgan, '38,
returned home after an almost miraculous combination of circumstances resulted
in his being freed from japanese imprisonment. His survival of the Death March
and other rigors of prison life has done much to increase our hope that the
ultimate victory will be gained soon.

As these pages are being prepared the senior and junior members of the
council are regretting that the Annual Student Council Convention became one of
the casualties of the war. Had times been more nearly normal the seven "upper
classl' members would have been planning a trip to Peoria some time in April.
The council has the responsibility of planning those affairs of the school
that are classed as student activities. Foremost have been those activities asso-
ciated with the war effort. Early in the term we heard the call for milkweed pods.
Students went in all directions on pod picking pilgrimages and as a result we
celebrated with an all-school dance, made a good sum of money, acquired the
title of Pod Picking Champions of the county, and obtained state-wide publicity.
Under the direction of the council, students contributed liberally to the
Tuberculosis, U. S. O., lnfantile Paralysis and Red Cross drives. Hy persistent
eltorts on the part of the council and by excellent cooperation on the part of
the students, our school made regular purchases of stamps and bonds, winning for
us the ,SiL'1?0IIlJ-GI'-WHT Flag and the right to keep it Hying.
Assembly programs and social affairs are among the regular activities of the
organization. School dances, held frequently, have been a very line source of
pleasure and a factor in keeping up school spirit and morale.

Each year the liuhfalo Staff begins its work with fear and trepidation. 'llhis
year we had a mad scramble for cameras to tit the few precious tilms we man-
aged to dig up. Through the co-operation of the student body we did tind cameras
and we have made every ettort to make the 1945 lluftalo the most successful one
Special recognition is hereby accorded to Leo Yoho and Margaret 'llhornton
for selling more copies of the lluffalo than any other members of the staff. A
total of 375 annuals was sold.
The advertising committee is to be complimented upon a real achievement in
securing over 3520.00 in advertising. This record was made possible by consistent
hard work on the part of the committee and the cooperation of our advertisers,
many of whom have substantially increased their space.
For "meritorious service beyond the call of duty," some appropriate decora-
tion should be awarded to junior Parke, Lucille Allen, Beverly Edmonds. Jean
Richards and Helen llaldwin for the hours and hours they have spent in typing
copy: to Mary liratick for her work on identifications and page layoutsg and
to Leo Yoho for his persistent efforts in securing and checking up the copy for
the advertising section. This is the kind of uninteresting and non-glamorous hard
work which makes the publication a success.

'l'he largest organization in school this year was the chorus with a total of
So members. Une-half of this number met on lllonday, Vliednesday and Friday
while the others met on 'lluesday and 'lihursday. Due to the tremendous man
shortage we had only four boys, but they held up their part very nicely.
The chorus made numerous public appearances throughout the year. just
before Christmas they sang at the Methodist Church and were invited back to
sing again on Palm Sunday. 'llhe chorus also gave the greater part of the Christ-
mas assembly program which was given the day before school was dismissed
for the holidays. 'llhe annual spring music concert was the evening of April 13,
at which time the chorus presented several numbers.
Although the group worked hard, they always found time for their social
life. Most of their parties were combined with those of the band. 'l'hey started

'llhe band this year started out with eighteen members. lly the end of the
first semester the membership had grown to twenty-four. Joe Lewis, the presi-
dent of the organization, resigned after the lirst semester to enter the Navy. Since
he was also our first cornetist, his loss was keenly felt. Evelyn Lindberg and Lois
lfullen joined the band the second semester, playing tenor saxophone and cornet,
respectively. 'llwo new instruments were bought for the band this year-W-a baritone
horn which is now played by Lynn DeLand, and a tenor saxophone, played by
Evelyn Lindberg. Both were used instruments but were in excellent condition.
'l'he band got such a late start that it was unable to play for any of the foot-
ball games but it appeared at most of the home basketball games. 'llhe band and
chorus collaborated to give a Christmas assembly program. 'llhe whole student
body joined in singing Christmas carols at the close of the program. 'llhe band
also appeared on the program during the dedication of the Schools-at-lNar Flag.
Most of the band members played in the small ensembles at the spring music
concert the night of April 6.
During the school year the band had several parties. One of these was an
initiation party given in September for the instrumental beginners. Another was
a skating party held at Ridgefarm on November 30.
'llhe seniors who have been in the band for four years are: 'llhelma Smith,
first elarinetist, and Joe Lewis. hrst cornetist. People receiving letters for being
in the band three years are: Lu Anne Elder, Lynn DeLand, Alice ,lXlaudlin, and
S'r'r1trd-Ralnnna XYilson, Miss Rees, Lu Anne Elder, Robert Haworh, Shirley XYeaver, -Norma' Candill. W V

'llhe purpose of this organization is to bring the activities of Georgetown
Township High School to the attention of the people of our community by means
of stories in the Georgetown News. Any junior who wishes to devote the neces-
sary time and energy to this project may belong to the staiii.
'lihe staff has met this year during the noon hour each Friday and Monday
to prepare the news items which are due at the News ofiice on Monday evening.
After the stories are written they are copied by the typing classes under the
direction of Miss Clark. Each member of the staff has a standing assignment
and is expected to cover any happenings on his "beat,"
Because of the lack of space in the town paper the articles this year have
been limited to straight news and no special features have been atempted. The
amount of news has varied but it has generally hlled from two to four columns.
At the suggestion of the Education Section of the War Finance Division ot
the United States Treasury Department, the staff in March took a poll of the
school. One hundred pupils, chosen at random from the four classes, were asked:
"VVhat are you saving money for when you buy War Stamps and Bonds ?'l 'l'he
answers were tabulated and forwarded to VVashington to be used in various ways
with similar reports from other schools of the country.
All members who work consistently throughout the year are given a certifi-
cate of award which may be exchanged for a medal when these are again
available. Those receiving this award in 1945 appear in the picture above.

"And Came the Springl' was presented December 8 by the class of '46. A
peaceful family has its tranquillity disrupted during "spring vacationl' by the
youngest daughter, Midge. She causes her sister to be suspetced of being a thief
and to come close to losing the right young mang she drops a bombshell into her
father's business: she wrecks her brother's plans for the future: and plays havoc
with the lives of various other young people including a New York glamour girl.
llut Midge gets the whole affair straightened out by the time vacation is over
and her long-suffering parents relax once more.

The purpose of Latini Hodierni is to increase the interest of the second year
Latin students in the language and customs of the Romans. Regular meetings
are held during the class period on the third Friday of each month.
At Christmas the club held a gift exchange and served simple refreshments.
On February 14, the members entertained the pupils of the Latin l class at a
Valentine party. Don Smith, as King Cupid, admitted applicants to his court
and divided them into groups for various contests. An impromptu radio program
followed with Marilyn Haworth as announcer. A group of Latin l students
dramatized the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, others sang Latin songs, and
Ruth VVinters gave a singing commercial on the value of Latin. Vici, played like
llingo, but with Latin words instead of numbers, completed the entertainment.
Mary Louise VVhitaker was chairman of the refreshment committee.
Cn the ldes of March tlllarch 155 the club enjoyed a special program
connnemorating the life of Julius Caesar.

New members must go through the usual initiation. This year each initiate
wore anklets of different colors, carried a fruit jar to serve as a purse, went
without makeup, and was not allowed to wear in her hair any pins, barrettes, or

also had a Christmas party with a gift exchange.
The purpose of the G.A.A. is to stimulate interest in girls' athletics and to
promote ideals of health and sportsmanship. Each year a sportsmanship award is

during the year in the G.A.A. activities. The award for 1943-'44 was given to
The leading sport of the year was basketball at G.A.A. play nights. Occa-
sionally we bowled instead of having play night. Each year a show is sponsored

summer. lletty Galyen was our only representative at the camp last summer.

This amusing comedy is an up-to-the-minute story of an American family
trying to enjoy a simple summer vacation at the lake.
Jacqueline Grayson is about to enter her third year in college. Because of
her childish tendency to let her enthusiasms run wild, she is fired with theatrical
ambition as soon as she learns that a summer theatre has been established nearby.
Julia March, the domineering and eccentric owner of the city paper which Iac's
father edits, has founded the theatre in order to further the ambitions of her
pampered granddaughter, Rosemary. Rosemary arrives to spend the summer and
'Iac meets the vibrant young theatre director, Dan Lyons. Immediately Jac and
Rosemary are at odds--over the important roles and over the director, as well.
The frenzy of Jac's amusingly lazy brother, Glenn, over the beauty of Rosemary,
and the jealousy of Agnes because of Glenn's infatuation for Rosemary develop
into many hectic difficulties. When a gossipy neighbor lady overhears a rehearsal
scene she mistakenly jumps to the conclusion that Rosemary and Dan have be-
come engaged and the news gets into the papers. Crushed at the news, -Iac and her
brother leave home in Agnes' sailboat. Reporters from a national picture maga-
zine arriveg Jac's father is forced to take over Glenn's role in the playg julia's
domination of jac's father causes a slight rift between him and his wife, Lillian.
Then Jac returns, a wiser girl, more independent, with a job of her own--but
gay as ever. Glenn switches his loving attention from Rosemary to Agnes. julia
March gives the paper up to Iac's father and she and her granddaughter make
an unexpected change to the "golden rule view of life."

The bronze Honor Roll beside the curb
Can't take the place ot their laughter and cheer.
We miss their lcidding and boisterous noise-
Their horseplay has spread afar.
Good old Georgetown has not been the same
Since our boys went ott to the war.
We read their letters to their tollcs and triends,
Our News carries the record ot citation and deed.
The whole town grieves when a sad message comes
And reioices when glad tidings we read.
Now, or-e by one, a tew have returned,
Their part in battle over and done.
From tlaming slcy and prison camp
They tind their way back to us and home.
Each day brings nearer the end ot the tigh+
When they can return to us again.
The ioy and gladness ot their coming home
Will dim the deepest sorrow and pain.
