Scranton At Girard a Hummer goes through the years with the beacon of the senior year beckoning him onw ard. After ten long years we have reached our goal and made our hope a reality, never to be forgotten. Now w ' e look back on this wonderful year, crowed with the good life but far, far too brief. We can still feel the emotional tang of enjoying our first days as seniors and vividly recall the pride of walking down the chapel aisle. Then there was the White Supper, our final Christmas Concert, WGC, the productions of the Dramatic Club, soccer, wrestling, fencing, dances, trips, College Boards, term papers, and the end¬ less hours of study — each of these and many more are the color and spirit painted on the canvas of our best year. The Washington trip gave us a new ' class unity. Seeing the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, hearing a Congressional debate, and visiting the White House w ' ere memorable events. They created a highlight in this great year, etched in our minds as a gift from our older brothers, the Alumni. We shall miss our life in Allen, our teachers and coaches, our home, and most of all our friends. Suddenly we have become very conscious of how much they have all given us, to prepare us for jobs, military service, or college, for all the demands that w ill be made on us when commencement is in the past. Embedded in our every action and word will be the responsibility of knowing that we are sons of Girard and that we shall be reflecting the fuller meaning of the education and the way of life which have so bountifully been provided for us by our Founder, Stephen Girard. We look back w ' ith pride on our school and go forward eagerly to prove that we are worthy Girardians.

It has led us from the Jun¬ ior School to a Hummer’s Utopia, Allen Hall, and has covered a period of ten years. We look back on those as the necessary preparation for the good life that has been ours in our final year at Girard. The dating privilege, a room with your chosen friends, the no-pass privilege and other advantages were important. Beyond these, there developed a new spirit and purpose made real by the fact that we would soon be leaving the Hum for jobs and college. Our friendships grew deeper and stronger. We learned that responsibility is synonomous w ith the life of a senior and that freedom is an earned privilege. There were many memorable high points: the Washington Trip, the White Supper, and the Bat¬ talion dance among others. There was the pride in leading a team to victory or in learning to accept defeat. And in our Allen life we shared them all. What we have learned and enjoyed in Allen Hall will be a part of our characters forever. It has been a good life and a good year.
