Come walk with me through tour grand years
I spent at dear Hurst High,
And you will understand just why
I hate to say goodbye.
lk These things I did, these things I knew,
While I in greater stature grew,
A molding Clay within these walls,
To live, to learn, to do.
Schoolmates are a part of schooling,
And mine are numbered by the score:
From every walk ot lite they come
ir To treasure more and more.
A sadness now creeps o'er me
As I know the end has come,
My many happy schooldays
I-Iave passed me one by one.
And so tomorrow when for me
The bells no longer ring,
And I must stand on distant hilltops
To hear the students sing
About their plays and classes,
Their teams with might and spark,
Their yearbook and their paper,
And the "ball" that thrilled the heart
But why should I in sadness tlounder
In this sea of happy things?
When I labored tor the future
With a gait of silver wings.
So that others learning here
Would higher step from year to year,
From lofty clouds to shining stars
Where all is clear.

The Colophon editorial start has built this year's
Annual around the theme, "Down Memory Lane." The
pictures and the printed words are records of high
school happenings. These records may suggest other
associations you have had in your high school liteg
associations concerned with an athletic game, a social
event, a class play, a classroom achievement or certain
other curricular or extracurricular activities. Today
they are memories. Are you satisfied with these mem-
ories? Vifhat accomplishments do they picture?
How often we hear the trite expression that what
we get out of life depends upon what We put into it. The
nation, the state, the community and the home need
trained individuals who can do things and in doing
them, contribute service to their tellowmen. You live
your own lite, make your own decisions and oi neces-
sity reap the reward or surfer the consequence. Let us
protit by our high school experiences. Have a definite
purpose and work toward it. Do not procrastinateg each
year passes quickly. As the years pass may they pro-
duce pleasant memories' memories which come from
LLOYD F. HUMBAUGH, B. A., Ed M, Ed. M.
Sup:-iintondcnt of Schools
Memories linger long atter the actual living ot the
present has ended. As a challenge to us may we "live
tor something." Each day ot school can be made a liv-
ing experience with thoughts, words and deeds that
can be cherished within our memories in the days ot
tomorrow. Day by day, in work, in play, and school, let
each one of us be alert, enthusiastic and optimistic and
look forward, onward and upward, ever confident and
trusting in the destiny ot America and in the teachings
ot the greatest "Master Teacher."
Human lives may be great cathedrals ot learning
or mere hovels depending upon what we do and how
we do it. The world is no better or worse to you than
you make it, Nevertheless, the sands ot time will not
write our individual names on tablets of fame, tortune
and honor, but the little deeds of goodness, words ot
understanding and mutual sympathy that we utter, and
the generous tolerance that we practice will leave
behind us a monument of virtue that the storms of lite
the satisfaction of having lived a lite worthwhile.

FORTY-EIGHT JUNIOR CLA
The light of the past shines brightly as we
recall the joys of our first year as high school
students of Hurst. What a day it was when We
entered those wide doorsff the doors that said,
"Welcome to Hurst."
After the many mistakes we made, we
gradually became accustomed to high school
life. As we entered the sophomore year we
were really "old timers." Our ability to get
along with the teachers was now an old trick.
When we returned to l-lurst for the term l947-48
our life was now beginning. We classified our-
selves as "luniors." The first important event
was the election of officers.
As the days Went by we had our class play
"We Shook The Family Tree." This proved to
be a success. ln lanuary we had a "Box So-
cial-" This also turned out to be a great suc-
cess. The funds of these two affairs will be used
for the next coming event, the lunior and Senior
Prom. All members of our class are Waiting
patiently for this, the most important formal of
our high school years.
As we look into the future, We, the "forty-
niners," hope our senior year will be as much
fun as the three years that have gone by.

E NINETEEN HUNDRED AND
As freshies we had always looked forward to the
day we would be considered to be upperclassmen.
Now our dreams have come true and we are sophis-
ticated sophomores. Next fall we will begin our third
year at Hurst.
Our record for the past two years is one of which
we are very proud. Several members of our class
became leaders at Hurst and were ready to do all
they could to help in any situation. Some of the more
mischievous ones were ready with new tricks to play
on their teachers and classmates. Many times we
looked down on those human beings with utter dis-
gust, but without them school life would have seemed
like a box without the candy.
Wliat will you remember about tenth grade?
Will you recall the cold winter mornings when pre
period classes were forgotten . . . the week before
Christmas when mistletoe and school parties kept
you on your feet . - . the first semester end when
everything seemed to draw to a close so quickly that
it left you slightly breathless . . . Valentine's Day
when cupid's messengers brought comic telegrams
to you . . . early Spring, when nothing mattered ex-
cept the "Prom" invite or shopping for a gown . . .
and May when school was coming to an end?

Each year before the entire student body,
the juniors and seniors who have attained a
high scholastic rating and have shown evidence
of possessing the prerequisites of service, leader-

into the society. This is always a most impres-

with ferns and candelabrum, and the N.l-l.S. em-
blem, the keystone, can be seen in the back-
ground. As a result of the work of the National
Honor Society, students are inspired to strive for
higher scholastic and moral standards. At
graduation, the N. H. S. grants a scholarship to
the most deserving senior who intends to fur'

Manufacturer To You - Coast To Coast
SENIORS - IUNIORS - SOPHOMORES - FRESHMEN
Hememlier last football season. Remember how your quarterback outsmarted the opponents
and walled a winning play. You won because some one did some quick thinking.
ln the game ot life those forge ahead and win who think most. A college education primarily
trains one to THINK. You who are living within easy distance of St. Vincent College can drive
to college everyday and get a college education tor less than half what it costs to go away to
college. Every young man in this district can get an education at St. Vincent it he has determina-
tion. A little extra work, a tew more sacrifices now, and he will be miles ahead when big oppor-
tunities come later. Medicine, Law, Teaching, Chemistry, Business, Music-these are just some of
the courses at St. Vincent.
But not every student who makes application will be admitted. Good grades and the proper
subjects are necessary. We urge freshmen and sophomores to take as much mathematics as pos-
sible. It trains you to THINK-the one quality required for college and lite. Engage in some extra
curricular activitiesgthey help to develop your personality. A book worm will never be a success-
