Harlem Consolidated High School Oh, what a precious cargo in the care of Uncle Sam! The Joshua, Calebs, Horatio Nelsons, and Stonewall Jacksons of modem history! We are going to mount the few pictures we received so that the reader will have the pleasure of seeing them in the Meteor. No one can really know how very happy we are to see our boys; but when we consider their sacrifice, we realize how feeble are our assignments in comparison. We notice tho service stripes! Veterans of foreign wars! Veterans! The very word connotes the dignity of years—and what do we see but the essence of youth- We've read Guadalcanal Diary. The Battle Is the Pay Off, Here Is Your War, and when these boys stand before us. we just have to touch their uniform, feel of their medals to make sure that they arc real. Yes, the characters of books come to life even though, as one hero said, "The movies and the books cannot tell the heart's story." By no means can we break faith with Harlem's service men. We are indebted to each boy represented on our service flag. This debt cannot be paid in dollars and cents. It can only be paid by real living. We can make of our school a sanctuary where real principle reigns. Our life, too, should be as well ordered as that of the boys. There should be punctuality, earnestness, sincerity, honor, cleanliness, godliness—all these in the superlative. Why? They need to observe these qualities to that degree, and under horrible conditions. We live without molestation. And when we live so abundantly, then can we honestly "lift up our eyes unto the hills", and know that they need not fear "the terror by night nor the arrow that flieth by day.” Then can we say with the poet, "I say to these, weapons reach not Life." We salute our boys! Wherever they are, God bless them! nineteen h u n d r e d and f o r t y - o u r
