AN OPEN LANE-As the title suggests, this book has a very modest purpose.
It is primarily intended to bring to the general public as well as to whoever may
look through its pages, the activities and school life of Lane.
We hope to bring the reader into as complete an understanding as we can of the
type of work carried on by the educational staff of our school. It should bring relief
to the parents who have had the idea that the technical school in which their sons
became interested caused a strain on his regular life, without being of value aside
from a means of education.
There really is no excuse for not knowing the boys, faculty and administration of
our school, "AN OPEN LANE," whose lives are linked with ours more than we have
ever guessed. Probably there is not a citizen of our city who has not at some time or

The contents of the book shall open your eyes to many things, and ere you close
the lost page, you will, at least, number on your list of interesting acquaintances,

at Lane. The characters in the story are wholly fictitious. However, they are
actually composites of all types in the school. They are not prototypes. They are
neither the acme of virtue nor the personification of vice. The boys do not all come
from the humblest beginnings and through industry and honesty rise to enviable
heights. They are not extraordinary in any great respect. We can truthfully say
that they are simply healthy, alert, young men of this generation, each boy with his
individual talents and weaknesses. The striking fact about the characters is their
resemblance to any number of modern American high school boys one meets in every-
day life. The characters chosen are typical of any Lane student. The instructive
and entertaining side of their high school life is symbolic of most of the graduating
Instead of compiling all of the incidents relative to high school life into a kind of
pointed record, the authors have woven the incidents into one continuous story. The
story centers about the scholastic activities of several young men from their entrance
into Lane until their graduation.
If this book succeeds in introducing more men and women to wider knowledge of
Lane and its policies, both, past and present, resulting in a greater interest and more
intelligent activity in their own life and education, its chief purpose will be accomp-
