Congratulations, 1934 Sage Staff!
The entire class of '34 deserves credit for the manner in which it successfully pro-
moted and completed the traditional project-publishing the Sage.
No class, probably, in the history of the Nampa High School ever faced a more
discouraging problem than the 1934 Sage. Some historians maintain that the winter of
1932-1933 will stand in this generation as the epitome of discouragement and depression.
No institution was more keenly alert to the suffering and losses felt by the rank and
file of people than the public schools. In the spring of 1933, the boards of trustees of
most school districts in the United States were confronted with the serious task of or-
ganizing school systems that could survive the troublous financial storms sweeping over
the land. When a matter of survival becomes the foremost consideration, many of the
luxuries have to be discarded. It was decided to limit the number of teachers employed
in the Senior High School in order to economize the cost of operating the high school.
The number of classes taught by each teacher was increased and the school time per-
mitted for teachers to assist the senior class was eliminated. This apparently automati-
cally eliminated the high school annual for 1934. But the class of 1934, undaunted by
such a dreary prospect and determined to carry out the project, worked out a plan that
has culminated in the presentation of this book to the Nampa High School. In the face
of this chaotic condition, the 1934 Sage Staff had the largest advance sale ever made in
the history of the school. A
We are proud of the seniors of 1934. They have demonstrated perseverance and
industry in many fields of endeavor, and our only hope is that for the future they will
show the same undaunted courage and stalwart forcefulness. May they achieve much
success and happiness, and return to the community which gave them these splendid
school opportunities full measure of good work and action as their appreciation to In-
dependent School District No. 37. -I. E. WALSH, Superintendent.
Education is moving forward today just as we find progress everywhere about us.
Perhaps this student body is living during a period when history is being made more
rapidly than it has ever been made before. This fact extends a challenge to everyone for
adjusting oneself to the pace which is being set in business, in government, and in the
use of time outside hours of employment.
The optimist is busy making progress while the pessimist is sifting the ashes of
despair. The one attitude has the ability to visualize with the willingness to work,
while the other spirit huddles about completely chilled by the winds of trouble.
There will always be some discouraging factors which will hinder progress but some
improvement is possible.
We of the faculty hope that true happiness may attend your efforts in the march
of progress. -C. C. COWIN, Principal.
