A frtendly brook gathered us upon her stlvery bosom,
Sped us on our appotnted way
Not paustng to stop but flowrng onward
It carrred us onward persuastvely, gently
Not pausrng to let us remarn as we grasped for prectous memorres
For twelve short mrles for twelve short years
The brook gently bore us on
Its transrent waters rrppltng over pebbles boundrng over rocks
Twrsttng and turntng tt made rts bed made our path to the future
At last the foamy ocean rs tn stght and now rt IS here
The v1ew from afar lent delusron for almost frrghtenrng rt appears now
Here we pause to reflect to remember and to say farewell before sa1I1n
Whether we sl1p beneath the enfoldtng waves
Whether we rrde the crest of trtumph I cannot say
I only know we shall sarl onward wrth courage and farth
I only know God gurdes our destrny

On the nrght of May 23 1953 a small number of students pasted up the last sllhouette
tacked up the last strand of crepe paper and stumbled home wondermg how they
could possrbly be ready for thelr Jumor Prom rn two hours
They somehow were dressed rn that trme and returned to the Nathan Hale Audrtorrum
full of doubts and mtsgrvmgs
As they entered the school they heard the sweet melody of The Song from Moulrn
Rouge played by Sal Greco and Hrs Orchestra Upon enterrng the room they sensed
an arr of regal splender as soft lrghts shone on evenrng gowns and dlnner Jackets From
this mxnute on all sense of trme was lost as the evenrng unfolded llke a beauttful dream
