53 rtuory The echoing sounds of excited students at a basketball game, the stentorian com¬ mands of officers drilling the Battalion, and the varied tones of horns and drums at Band practice will be brought to our minds when we see this picture of the Armory. We shall remember rhythmic pounding of track men practicing, the pick-up contests in basketball and the exhilaration of physical satisfaction in good exercise with our growing in strength. ■ " ) lecliahtcal gJcLooI Ii his will Stephen Girard expressed a desire to have each student taught a trade or a skill so that on leaving our school the stu¬ dent could earn his living. The Mechanical School has given many of us skills which will fulfill the desires of our Founder, as carpen¬ ters, printers, draftsmen, electricians, machin¬ ists or as automobile mechanics. We shall miss the hours working with our teachers in learning these trades. O ' nji rtnanj Girard College boys are healthy because they have good care. We can thank our nur¬ ses and doctors for their devotion to our well being. Overweight or underweight, toothache or headache, whatever the ailment major or minor we found the care we needed. Some of us who belonged to the " operation metrical” practically joined the staff while enjoying those unusual meals. The Infirmary has been cur refuge when we needed care. 9 ]

QilsuSJ Our first days as Newbies began at West End where we made new friends and learned a new way of life, finding a place and learn¬ ing to respect the others fellows’ rights and gaining their respect. We grew stronger and surer with each day’s adventure. We began to talk about the " govy,” the " secy,” and " grub,” and to become " brothers of Girard.” QftiJJh g Uool The Middle School marked our first ma¬ jor step up the Main Road. Here for the first time we were taught by men teachers. Stud¬ ies became more serious and important. Or¬ ganized athletics developed our competitive feelings and sportsmanship. Accomplishment became a responsibility. Our friendships grew in strength. In the friendly classroom life we began to know the purpose of school. (SLpel We shall never forget the magnificence and beauty of our Chapel. Something of the Christmas Concerts, the Sunday services, the Wednesday morning talks will be forever a good and abiding memory. As we read this, we shall be thinking seriously of our grad¬ uation, of walking down the aisle, of leaving Girard and we shall be sad and glad. We shall be thankful for Stephen Girard’s generosity.

9(. g l. -JcUl The doors seen in this picture of the High School were the entrance to ISO days of clas¬ ses and experiences and personalities which are deeply etched in our minds. Assembly pro¬ grams, semester examinations, career pro¬ grams dramatic productions, daily classes, awards of honors in the N.H.S.. and as win¬ ners of varsity letters. WGC programs, and remedial periods filled the days. We have ab¬ sorbed from all of these a purpose and a meaning. J ilrary Girard is the proud possessor of a library superior to that of many colleges and most schools. How many hours have we spent there? How much have we been influenced in our learning and maturing by all that it has offered? Probably much more than we realize. In our tense and struggling world the library stands as a symbol of the know ledge that will keep it free. (Allen r J{Jl In the future when we think of Girard, our thoughts will focus on the good life we had in Allen Hall where we shared with one another the problems, the hopes, and the hon¬ ors of our final year. We shall find new friends in the years to come, but they can never grant us the unrestrained friendships we have known here. Finally we are grateful for the pleasant and firm guidance of Dr. Ziel, Dr. White, Dr. Lander and Mr. Pease. 10 j-
