THE SENIOR CLASS '51
JACKSON TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL
This is a word and picture story of our school. In twelve short years
we have passed from unsuspecting first graders to mighty seniors. This
annual will show our physical growth in pictures and you, our elders, can
observe our mental attainments. The class of 1951 has traveled that road
and is now ready to join in the competition of earning a living and to con-
We have had the opportunity to develop our mental powers on prob-
lems set by our teachers.
We have had the opportunity of developing our moral powers by the
way we have met these tasks, and with the associations of our classmates,
teachers, parents, and friends. Morality is not an abstraction, it is a way
The meaning of right and wrong is changing from generation to gen-
eration. There are among us, plungers, who maintain wrong is right.
There are others who cling to right because it has always been right. Ed-
ucation should teach us to weigh and evaluate the facts, in our time, not
in the past, nor in the future.
We have been given responsibilities in school that we could handle.
Other times we have been given responsibilities that had to be taken away
from us because we failed to see the problem involved and the part we were
to play. From these failures we have learned.
We know now-to a degree-the reaction of the faculty as they have
seen us grow angry and sullen. They knew a test had been given and they
saw the people who failed, and they saw the people who passed. In our
life to come, as age and experience mellows us, we will spend many happy
hours talking about those tests-matching wits and cunning with our
parents and teachers. Then, and only then, will we, the mighty seniors
of '51, fully realize what school days really meant.
We are more grateful to our parents, teachers, and the taxpayers for
the opportunity given to us than we will now be able to show. In fact, we
will put up the old Martyr song-didn't you?”
