Reveille Staff Uses Century of Progress As Theme for Year Book
In accordance with the Chicago Century of Progress Exposition of 1933-1934,
which intends to bring assurance that the steady march of progress has not
swerved aside, nor even been seriously retarded, that so-called "recessions', are
temporary lilce the receding wave that leaves the shore, we, the editors of the 1934
Reveille feel that there could be nothing more appropriate as a theme for our
book, than a brief history setting forth the part which the great Middle West
has had in making possible this great feat.
Since our own town and school have materially aided in it, we oller this year-
book as an example of the development and the progress of our community as
observed by the class of "34"-which hopes to preserve its memory through print
Every community has its own character. Unquestionably, courage and enter-
prise have been the qualities associated with the name of Milford. In early days
men of Enterprise were attracted to, and gathered strength in using the oppor-
tunities of this locality. The city lifted itself out of the wildernessg it recovered
from the cholera epidemic: it grew and prospered in spite of Indian Wars, con-
flagrations and panics- and it felt strength.

fribits in Basit' Science and Medicine at I1

A Century of Progress Exposition is not only a celebration in aclcnowledge-
ment of the service of men throughout the world who contributed to the growth
of Chicago in the past century, but it also attempts to recall the great achieve-
ments of this century.
This century is the first in which man has developed the ability to use all the
known forces of nature for his own purposes. Ir is the one in which he has made
a greater progress in adjusting himself to a comfortable relation to his physical
environment than has been made in all the centuries preceding this.
Likewise, we, the Reveille staff of 1934, will endeavor to accord recognition
of the services of our predecessors, consider the inliuences that have brought us
progress and study the means whereby we ma-y retain the blessings already secured
and increase and extend them for ourselves and our successors, by portraying two
aspects of this great theme, "A Century of Progressu-the vast changes in the
Educational and Social Life, the Architecture, and the Machinery of the Farmer
since the founding of the Milford High School in 1878.
