RESUME OF SCHOOL YEAR ♦ I 9 3 4 The senior class of 1934 will participate, as will many other schools, in the celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the signing of the Common Schools Law, which gave free public schools to our Commonwealth and which through the brilliant defense of Thaddeus Stevens has remained on our statutes since to determine the educational destinies of Pennsylvania youth. The dream of the public spirited men supporting this law was, " That the blessing of education shall be conferred on every son of Pennsylvania — shall be carried home to the poorest child of the poorest inhabitant of the rneanest hut in your mountains, so that he may be prepared to act well his part in this land of freemen, and to lay on earth a broad and solid foundation for the enduring know- ledge which goes on increasing through eternity. " Said Governor Wolf in his message to the legislature in 1834, " Universal Education, if it were practicable to enforce it everywhere would operate as a powerful check upon vice, and would do more to diminish the black catalogue of crimes, so generally prevalent, than any other measure, whether for pre- vention or punishment that has hitherto been devised. " The first part of this wish made one hundred years ago has practically been fulfilled and we now have universal education compulsory to age 16 in Pennsylvania. In spite of this, however, education has not checked vice, and the " black catalogue of crime " has increased rather than decreased. You, senior friends of 1934, have agreed to accept these larger responsi- bilities that education has imposed upon you. You are discovering that your high school education is not a golden pass key that makes every door open at your bidding. On the other hand, you are finding that it does mean additional responsibility for improving the citizenry, for improving the civic organizations, and for reducing crime and the evils now existing. Since your entrance into high school, there has been an increase in the financial status of the athletic association, an increase in the percentage of victories and in the number participating in the program. We can feel justly proud that the intra-mural program in Kane High School ranks among the first in Pennsylvania. Over fifty percent of the boys and girls enrolled in high school have participated in sports and games. The eighth grade schedule has been arranged so it is an integral part of our organization. Its members participate in our activities plan, student council, home room programs and assemblies. We now have separate assemblies for the upper three and tower two grades in the high school building. Music was offered as an elective this year for the first time. Over three hundred and fifty students were enrolled in the glee clubs, orchestra, band, and music classes. An a capella choir was organized and performed first at the Ridgway Music Program. These programs were originated at Kane High School in your junior year and will no doubt replace the music contests now held. Two new courses have been added to the program of studies. Journalism was offered to seniors and juniors to assist in the preparation of the HI-LIFE and HURRI-KANE, and for those who enjoy writing. Social Problems, a study of changing governments and cultures, has been especially valuable in helping keep abreast of our political changes. Your interest in improving our own organizations is encouraging and leads us to expect you to take a prominent part in community affairs. We hope you will continue to participate not for medals, pins, badges, and financial re- wards, but for the sake of contributing service to your community, for the hope of reducing crime, and thus achieve the results, which those who sponsored education one hundred years ago, expected of our public schools.
