.- TO AMERICA ...-
It is thrilling to read the words of Abraham Lincoln
who stated not so long ago, NAS I would not be a slave, so I
would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.
Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference,
is no democracy."
There is one end, and one answer. Tb that end and that
answer the 1942 Amariah adds its voice. We will do all with
in our power to help. Individually our efforts are not much
but as a unit in the millions of voices that will ring fear-
lessly through the years until our goal is achieved, we are
indispensable. So are you. So the aggressor nations of the
world will find out---'That government...by the people shall
not perish from the earthu ---- That we may defend the land we
love--That our posterity may face a future unafraid--that we
may build for a better world--we do dedicate this 1942 Amar-
iah to AMERICA!
Dear Parents and Friends,

ditions and ideals We have the opportunity to select and

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
In their freshman year the class of 1942 sponsored no
activities. The freshmen were too busy learning the ways of
high school. As they settled down into the ways of sopho-
mores they began to play a more prominent part in school.
As juniors they began working for their class jewelry
at the mid-year. The class found the sale of candy very pro
fitable. They also held successful roller-skating parties.
The class decided to purchase rings, and in early May
were proudly displaying the rings of their choice. When the
class returned in the fall of 1941 it was but slightly im-
pressed by the dignity of being the school's senior class.
The following officers were elected: William Taylor, presi-
dentg Vera Jean Tayntor, vice-presidentg Jean Houghton, sec-
retaryg and Carlos Tayntor, treasurer. Jean Church and Les-
ter Bach were chosen as council representatives.
A comedy, "Spring Fever", was chosen for the Senior
Play, and on November 27th was well presented before a ca-
As the end of the year approached, the seniors seemed
to attain a new seriousness, and in June came the climax of
their high school careers. Eagerly---yet reluctantly, they
face commencement and the day when they will be seniors in
high school no longer, but beginners in life.
The Junior Class displayed a spirit of patriotism bf
converting the year's earnings, which in previous years were
spent for class rings, into defense stamps and bonds.
Candy sales netted the most profits, while a magazine
campaign, several skating parties, and a patriotic dance aug
mented the class coffers. Thus the class, as students and
patriots, strove to make their year a happy and victorious

ON THEIR WAY
The sophomore class enjoyed the prestige of a high soho
lastic record during the past year. However their efforts
weren't confined to scholastic matters. In order to launch
their financial campaign, the class sponsored the Golden Jub
ilee basketball game at which they sold pins and programs.
They also conducted a blanket club.
The officers of the class include Guy Spader, president
Harold Tucker, vice-president, Charles Barker, secretary,
and Robert Jackson, treasurer. Joan Holden was their repre-
sentative in the Student Council.
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
In September thirty-seven eager pupils began their year
as freshmen. To insure a strong class in future years, the
freshmen set to work making a class constitution.
Interested in extra-curricular activities, the freshmen
took advantage of their new status to enter the organiza-
tions open to high school students. The most popular was the
Library Club which many of the girls joined.
Several members of the class will be among the first to
be graduates of a new course open to pupils the five-year
high school course.
Officers are Katherine Potter, president, Robert Sayles
vice-presidentg Charles Roeller, secretary, Betty Davis,
treasurer, and Carl Janovsky,student council representative.

ENTHUSIASTIC EIGHTH GRADERS
On September third a group of lively and enthusiastic
eighth graders scurried into their new homeroom, eager to be
gin their new work for the year.
This group has been very active during the school year,
many of the class members taking part in Girl and Boy Scouts
Homemaking Club and Bowling Club.
The class beamed with pride when two of their fellow
classmates, Lucille Tucker and Sue Marshall, were added to
the Junior Varsity Cheerleading Squad.
The officers are Rosemary Eiholzer, presldentg Merilee
Howlett, vice-presidentg Patricia Hawes,secretary-treasurer.
YOUTH OF THE YEAR
The seventh grade pupils, latest recruits of the junior
high, have taken part in many of the school activities dur-
ing the year. They have been active in music, art, scouts,
homemaking, and library work.
They chose for their class flower the lily of the val-
ley. Their class colors are blue and gold, and their motto
is nwhat you will be tomorrow, depends on what you are to-

ON THE DOWNBEAT
The Junior Ensemble consists of forty-five young musi-
cians, many of whom received their first instrumental in-
struction last September.
The purpose of the class was to emphasize a sense of
harmony and co-ordination with fellow musicians, rather than
individuel performances. This co-ordination requires great-
er individual endeavor and a more zealous desire for accom-
Those who showed the greatest improvement were chosen
from this class to enter the senior band and orchestra. Se-
lections played include chorales and marches.
WITH THE COUNCIL
Representing the student body in relations with the
school administration, the Student Council undertook many
new and customary activities during this past year.
Among the first of these was the formulating of a plan
for choosing the junior cheer-leaders. B1is plan met with
the approval of the student body and resulted in the selec-
tion of six new cheer-leaders.
As customary the submitted charters of worthy clubs
were granted and future assembly programs chosen. Work pro-
gressed on an informative handbook which will be published
early next fall.
One of the most important undertakings was the sale of
United States Defense Stamps.

plied many entertaining assemblies including the comedy-
drama 'Joint Owners in Spain', the melodrama nHearts and
Flowersn, and the comedy 'Of All Beings' which was produced

er before, and to obtain it and execute it is the purpose of

vice club. Some of their services included make-up and prop
erties for the grade Christmas entertainment, posters and
programs for the Drama Festival, and enlarging illustrations
from 'Winnie-the-Pooh' for first grade use.

habits of clear, concise thinking and writing, and acquire
skill in collecting, condensing, and organizing material.
Experience was gained in writing headlines and leads, using
the inverted pyramid, and eliminating editorializing.
Achievement pins were awarded to regular contributors.
Vera Jean Tayntor and Jean Houghton were elected editor and
assistant editor, respectively.
IN THE MAKING
The Yearbook Staff of 1942 offers this year's compact
edition of the HAmariahu for your pleasure and perusal. We
have attempted to make a distinctive book by using more copy

ting a special feature section on School Life. We hope that
these variations meet with your approval.
The Staff wishes to express its appreciation to the
Board of Education who have so generously financed the 1942
uAmariahn. It is their belief that yearbook advertisements,
due to their media, work a hardship on local merchants. They
are, therefore, taking this means of sponsoring the publica-

trek cart and taking an over-night hike to Eaton.
