You, as pupils of the Senior lligh School, have been privileged during
the past three years to participate in classroom and extra-curricular ac-
tivities without direct cost because of the feeling on the part of the citi-
zens oi' Janesville that education is a debt of the present generation to
your generation. Those who have made these opportunities available ask
in return that, as you assume and perform the duties of citizenship in-
cumbent upon young' men and women, you continuously study all problems
in an honest ellort to improve the community in which you live. Partici-
pation in the activities of a community is a requirement of every good
citizen in a democratic society. As you live from year to year you will
discover that society liourishes through the mutual aid of its members
iust as an athletic team wins when the boys who represent our school
subordinate individualism to team work.
ln years to come you will find in the pages of this yearbook a record
ol' your activities for the past three years, a record which you will review
many times. As you re-read these pages, I since1'ely hope you will be able
to say to yourself' that you are a citizen participating in the affairs of your
government and that your city is better because of the contributions you

Within the covers of this Phoenix are mirrored the activities of per-
haps the happiest period of your life. Janesville High School has provided
a few brief years of occupation for you, not preparation for life but life
itself. You students have not been mere passive recipients of "secondary
education"-that is too often taken to imply a limited sort of mental
growth and training. Most important physical, social, and character de-
velopments have taken place, and these in proportion to the wholehearted-
ness with which you have entered into the many phases of school life.
The world at the present time is confronted with terrific problems.
These must be solved by the youth of today. You are perhaps only dimly
aware of their full nature and importance, for your school and home have
provided protective sheltering. Your knowledge that responsibilities are
inescapable, that difficult problems are solvable through real effort, and
that there is satisfaction in the completion of a task is sufficient to guaran-
tee you for your larger success in life.
The opportunities provided by this community in its educational sys-
tem indicate the hope and faith that it has in you. The constant modi-
fication of your curriculum and activities in accordance with your needs,
desires, and abilities is a part of the American belief in the importance of
developing individual personality. Your home, school, and community ask
no reward, however, for their contributions other than your success and
happiness now and in the future.
