'nljwmfq-lawn The retirement of Principal Williaili Drew at the end of this term inevitably carries the thoughts of Missionites back to the days of 1919, when, just after an earlier time of war and crisis, Mr. Drew became principal of Mission High School .... The lessons of the war did not go unnoticed by Mission's head. In the years bet-ween World War I and World War II, he pioneered in vocational education and built up curricula so modern and inclusive that, with only few additions, they today give Mission boys and girls invaluable training and service to our country in its time of need .... lt was Mr. Drew who encouraged the development of Mission's R.O.T.C. battalion, a battalion whose graduates fought to the end at Bataan, struggled on shaking with fever as they led the Marines forward at Guadalcanal, and electrified the world when-his own son among them-they landed with the Army on the beaches of North Africa .... Mr. Drew had been at Mission only a few years when explosion and fire wrecked the main school building and left standing intact only a small, wooden structure. From that somewhat rickety beginning evolved Mission's present monument to mod- ern educationea structure fought for and in considerable part designed by 1 9 ' ,sf 5 Mr. Drew .... Closely allied to his work in erecting the Mission High School of today was Mr. Drew's struggle for Missions playheld. Missions home-to-be Lx , ga X 1- ,fy-1 ' 1 y y I iq R 5 ' - .
