One institution which remains firm is that of the school whose policies are guided by high-minded, energetic men and women. To them, our teachers, some of whom are fighting on for-ilung battle fronts and others who are training the future leaders of a post-war world ... to them, with our sincerest thanks for their ever helpful guidance, we dedicate this annual. two SUPERINTENDENT DR.

NO PICTURE: Sarah Juliane McElheny MINUTE MAN FLAG The raising of the Minute Man Flag over the Castle was one of the most important events of the year for the entire student body This flag symbolizes the fact that ninety per cent of the Knights and Ladies buy war stamps each month. CHRISTMAS VESPER Lynwood ' s traditional vesper service told in harmonious music and with beautiful tableaux the story of Christ s birth. jyp Stfflii ' juMii ' TENTH GRADE ACTIVITIES Tenth grade activities began this year with a nomination assembly in October 4, followed by the election of class officers on October 5. The seniors chose Robert Schul- theiss as president, Marilyn Simpson, vice-president, Helen Boese, secertary, and Robert Danner, treasurer. On November 11, the next important date, the tenth grade contributed to the success of Lynwood ' s Armistice Day celebration by marching in the parade. On December 3, at a pay assembly they provided the school with on amateur show in which the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades participated. The proceeds went to the gift fund, a sum of money collected each year by the seniors and used to purchase a present for the school. On December 11, as a climax to activities before the Christmas holidays, a party was held in the gym during the fifth and sixth periods. Robert Schultheiss as Santa Glaus dis- tributed gifts; refreshments and modern dancing concluded the fun. The senior class showed its patriotic spirit on December 14 by contributing a one hundred dollar bond to the Lynwood bond drive and by providing entertainment for prospective buyers. The movie, " Laughing at Danger, " was presented on December 18 during fifth and sixth periods to all tenth grade student body members. January 8 was a date to go down in history, for on that day the tenth grade defeated the faculty for the first time on record, in a thrill-a-minute basketball game. The proceeds from this event also went to the senior gift fund. On February 4 during fifth and and sixth periods a class party was held, beginning with the Virginia Reel and concluding with pie and ice-cream, modern dancing and ping-pong. Next came a faculty-tenth grade baseball game. Another har fought battle found the students again victorious and the gift fund again swelled by the proceds. At last spring came. On April 15 dahing damsels strutted across the stage displaying the newest fashions to student body members. Who would have thought that the tenth grade he- men would make such beautiful girls! Some of the lovely ladies participating were: Barbara June Galleher, Louise Echols, Bobby June King, Ardie Nichols, Geneva Garcia, and Roberta Danner. On May 5 the seniors again added to their gift fund by presenting a talent show to student body members. Boy ' s day sponsored by the Lynwood Rotary Club was held on May 6, when twenty- one tenth graders proceeded to forget school and step into various city offices. The luncheon at Rotary Hall was highly appreciated by all fortunate to take part in the occasion. The annual tea for the graduates and their mothers on May 13 was the first of the commencement activities. Corsages made by the tenth grade girls were presented to the mothers; a program was given by members of other classes. On the night of May 29 came the long awaited banquet which this year, as in the past, was a lovely formal affair. It was followed by a party in the gym where the students enjoyed dancing to a tine band June 4 was a day especially enjoyed by the tenth grade since it was the date of the annual picnic held on the school campus. Following athletic contests, lunch was served by the cafeteria, and a movie concluded the day . Comencement took place in the school auditorium on Friday, June 11, and for the first time in the Castle ' s history the tenth graders graduated in formats and dress clothes. At this time the students of the graduating class would like to thank their sponsor, Mrs. A. L. White, for her guidance and friendship during their senior year at Lynwood. eight CLASS OFFICERS Robert Schultheiss President Marilyn Simpson Vice-president Helen Boese Secretary Robert Danner Treasurer Tenth Grade Committee 10-1, Bob Cook; 10-2, Bill Turner; 10-3, Dorothy Paulus; 10-4, Louis Echols; 10-5, Barbara Sheehy; 10-6, Iris Schied.

WAR ACTIVITIES The first and most important achievement of the Knights and Ladies was the war bond and stomp drive. The sales were token care of in homeroom so successfully that they increased steadily with e»ery month. Finally the day came when the Minute Man Flag was raised over the Castle, symbolizing the fact that ninetly per cent of our student body is investing in bonds or stamps. During this time Lynwood also look active part in collecting scrap, in raising funds for the Red Cross, in a " six a week " jeep drive, and in collecting old candles and cans to make night lights for the soldiers. Contributing model airplanes to government training stations, making U.S.O. scrapbooks, and sending presents to former students in the service was another phase of Lynwood ' s war effort. Two patriotic parades were participated in by Lynwood high school students. The Armistice Day parade in which homerooms, gym classes, band, and other school organiza- tions entered was praised highly by the community. On December 7, the band marched to the Victory House in the middle of town where it played patriotic numbers while bonds were being sold. ASSEMBLIES One of the most interesting assemblies presented this year was the Hi Jinx, a set of acts put on by talented students of the Castlet. The proceeds from the program were giv- en to the P.T.A on " Back-to-School " night drama classes enacted a timely poetical drama, " They Burned the Books, " The most outstonding under the direction of Mr. Tom Bastyr and Mr. Harold M. Anderson was the Christmas Pageant, consisting of scenes depicting the birth ol Cnrist with a musical setting of Christmas songs. CHARITIES Forty-five dollars were sent to the National Transcribers Association for the Blind to pay for braille books in appreciation of the fine program given before the asembled student body by that organization. The March of Dimies was a great success this year. Into the scholarship fund went the proceeds of a basketball and a baseball game between the Squire and Yeom.an organizations. CONTESTS Many art students at the Castle entered the annual Poppy Poster Contest. In the field of writing every seventh and eighth grader who sent an essay to the Latham Foundation Essay contest won a place. This is the first time in the history of the organization that such an event has taken place. All Knights and Ladies also participated in the essay contest on " Making America Strong " sponsored by the Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The annual reading and speaking contest brought forth the best efforts of many students. PUBLICATIONS A revised and enlarged handbook was printed for new students of the Castle. For the second year anthology containing the creative writing efforts of students in each English class was published. DISBURSEMENTS Money belonging to the student body was used wisely this year for the benefit of the students. Colorful pi ctures were placed in each room, a large war bond was purchased, and two motion pictures were presented for the enterainment of the student body.
