Although this season was not successful, it can be said that
the boys had a good Hghting spirit and went down Hghting.
Much credit is due to Coach Vanstone because this was his
first year of coaching football at North East. VVith the assist-
ance of Mr. Campbell, they did very well in selecting and build-
ing a team from almost entirely new material.
To the boys who did not make the team or a letter, much
credit is given for their services and loyalty to the team. XVe
hope that next year they will win their letters.
The following lettermen will be lost through graduation:
Raymond Archer., Chester Casconi CCaptainJ, Robert Cook,

party for the school at the Twelfth Street Skating Rink. Be-
cause this was such a success, they sponsored another on Feb.
14, 1940. This, however, was not so successful because bad
weather prevented many students from going.

The Latin Club consists of students who are now taking
their third and fourth years of this subject. The fourteen mem-
bers, both Seniors and Juniors, hold a meeting each month in
the home of someone belonging to the group. They have also
held several purely social gatherings during the year, including
a sleigh-ride and a Christmas party.
The club colors are purple and gold, favorite shades of thc
ancient Romans, and the pins of the group are worked in the
same colors. The name selected this year was "Trojanie," a very
suitable one since we are studying the exploits of the Trojans.
Under Miss Scouller's capable guidance, the club has been a
great successg and we, the Seniors, hope that the members left
behind will continue to enjoy and benefit from it.

AND THEY LIVED HADDILY
As I sat relaxed one evening in a spun-glass
armchair and carelessly watched the telc-
visionic screen become alive with Hgures re-
lating the n.ews of the day, I was startled
into attention. For there on the screen was
the face of ivalter Godsin, the new and bril-
liant radio commentator. Standing beside
him was the gentleman whom he was pre-
senting .to this deeply interested televisionic
audience of 1950-none other than our old
high school classmate, Louis Maas. He was
now the state senator who had just gone on
record for delivering the longest filibuster in
history-one nhich lasted for seven weeks and
was at last successful in defeating an unfair
militia bill. Next, to my still greater sur-
prise, our commentator presented another
school friend, Virginia Pellor, who had just
won first prize in a Metropolitan Museum of
Art exhibit for a portrait of her still in-
timate friend., Carmella Mobilia. Carmella, I
have since heard, is now the wife of that sue-
eessful young man, Reid Mays, who is a jun-
ior partner in a VVall Street brokerage firm.
This unexpected glimpse of my old friends
made me determined to find out the fates
of more of those people with whom I spent
four years of my life. Fate seemed to be
playing into my hands, for the very next
day whom should I mee-t on the street in
North East but Charlotte Hollister. ln spite
of her vows to remain unmarried, "Holly"
was the second member of our class to march
to the strains of Mendelssohn, preceded only
hy Jean Meyer, whose diamond we admired
so much in high school days fore told arighl.
With Charlotte was Eleanor Herrick the
noted New York fashion designer, home on a
visit, who said that she had seen several of
our friends at a recent New York party given
by Ruth Riefstahl, now a famous hostess. At
this unique party. where the guests came
dressed in the rather foolish styles of ten
years ago, 1940, were among others, Lila
Jean Kunkle, smart young society matron
and leader of cafe society, Owen Sheridan,
editor of a metropolitan daily paper, and
Margery Burden, at that time working on a
Fred Sladden, the globe-trotting reporter,
was unable to be present because he was
covering the sailing of our new U. S. Ambas-
sador to France, Gabriel Gagnon. As a rather
strange coincidence, on the Normandie, Jr.,
on which "Gaby" sailed were two of our
other classmates, each unaware of his friends'
presence. Leading the ship's orchestra was
Harold Greenman, and official hostess of the
beautiful floating hotel was Ruth Shields.
However, it wasn't necessary to look so far
from home for some of our friends. The pop-
ular young "gym" instructress in our new
high school was Julia VVagner, and Lucille
Wassink showed herself equally successful as
an English teacher. B. Ruth Norris we were
not surprised to find the proprietress of a
florist's shop in Erie. Howard Post had be-
come one of the town's leading large-scale
farmers and was still competing with his
old friend, James Youngs, in the agricultural.
line. George Lick has only recently completed
his internship and is now ready to begin prac-
Harold VVeinheimer, who still makes his
residence in North East, was at the time out
of town supervising the opening of another
branch in -ll1E'YVOiHl1CiIllCl' Grocery Chain.
Traveling with him is Bob Edwards, who is
now a talent scout for the New York Yanks,
and has been assigned to this area. Also liv-
ing in North East at present, as I later dis-
covered, is Phyllis Baker. She is now a busi-
ness woman, but at the time I called upon
her, she was in Meadville visiting her old
chum, Jane Bemiss, who has been living there
for nearly five years.
One evening at a concert given bv a famous
orchestra now on the road, I was surprised to
see Roselyn Curtis playing in the violin sec-
tion. Ncar her as always, was Howard Boyd,
another member of the orchestra. Traveling
with the company as a dynamic press agent
was Rufus Luebke. Equally serious is the
lifework of Helen Kaufmann who is one of
our leading woman scientists, as I learned in
a recent magazine article, and is now working
on an important theory. Santo Serimenti has
taken up the same line, also with success.
Among those classmates who have chosen
less sober vocations I found lfcrnice Post the
manager of a roller skating rink and Bob
Cook a highly rated "pro" football star. Man-
aging the same team on which his brother
plays was Charles Cook, whose business sense
makes him a good man for the job.
Farther from home, I found Elizabeth
Rouse a feminine lawyer of unusual skill.
Elizabeth Pierce is her invaluable research
worker. In the same city Betty Phillips has
taken expert charge of a famous doctor's of-
Pat Meyer I found the operator of a detec-
tive ageney, and another classmate with an
unusual vocation is iValter Smith, a racer,
and winner of the Indianapolis Classic of
1949. Jean Ruble has become an expert de-
bating eoach, but we hear she is soon to fol-
low in Miss Woods's footsteps. NVe find that
Elvora Goodspeed's expert ice-skating has
put her well on the road to fame. Janet Snell
has also taken up skating professionally, but
hers is in the roller, and not ice, line. Marie
Garnow, urged on by her success in her senior

year at high school, is now one of those lucky
people who devote their time to winning con-
tests galore. "Peppy" VVilkinson is a member
of the class of '40 who chose an unusual voca-
tion. She is now a "health fan" and advo-
cates going without coats, sweaters, gloves,
and hats whenever possible. Raymond Arch-
er, unsaddened by school-day experiences in
the peanut line, has opened a factory and
now passes out nuts on his own whim.
Reid Sprague, another who wandered far
from home, was evidently attracted by his
visit to New Orleans, because he married a
southe.rn girl and settled there. Also in the
south is Ruth Randall, who is studying sing-
ing in St. Louis. Far from home is Norman
Barton who we hear is doing well in his
dance studio in Reno.
Hard to keep track of is Irene Pierce, who has
become a police woman and thus travels
around somewhat. Mary Meehl, the beauti-
cian, like Este Maxon, now a mechanic, is
still living in North East. Edward Luebke
runs a grocery store and Bi-ll Palmer, just as
back in 1940, is interested in farming and
girls-in fact, is the father of five daughters.
Alice Decker and Clara Nicastro, success-
ful young secretaries, 1-ide from Nortn East
to work in Erie each day with Carl YVay, a
rising insurance man. Phyllis Stimsc-n's train-
ing in "Home Ee" prepared her well for life as
a housewife, the same career which Margaret
Semelka has adopted. Their friends, Ruth
Shirey and Ada Hopkins, registered nurses,
say that they are anxious in their off-duty
hours to try on the hats of Donald Ball, who
has become '21 famous designer in France.
By a strange coincidence, court reporter
Richard Howard, took notes when electrician
Clarence Hutchinson and Allan MacDonald
took out a patent on their new invention.
Virginia Pierce, preparing for jury duty, mea-
tioned this as we went to notify Charlotte
Cushman and Arthur Chesley, both of whom
still reside in North East, oi' their selection
for the same duty.
It was Chester Casconi who told Genevieve
Bennett and lnyself of the success of Chicago
Lusvness woman Helen Loop, the last member
of the class of 1940. And it was with a sigh
as I realized how singularly well that' group
has placed itself in the world, that I closed
that chapter in my flife.

The sudden, sharp ringing of the phone
lifted Mary Raines from her chair by the fire
and had barely stopped as she raised the re-
ceiver to her ear.
"Yes . . . yes . . . wonderful! . . . O. K.
fine . . . by!" formed the entire telephone con-
versation which ensued.
As Mary danced back to her seat, Mr. Raines
looked up, a startled look on his face. "That
was a short conversation," he remarked.
"XVhat's the matter?" As Mary joyously
explained that "the gang" were planning a
trip to the nearby city that evening and
would pick her up in a few hours, tl1e first
few pelts of snow stung the windows. As well
timed as though the phone's ringing had been
a signal, the storm began. Snow fell harder
and faster each moment and the temperature
had already dropped several degrees when,
a few moments later, Mr. Raines announced
firmly., "Mary, for the last time, I don't want
you to go tonight. lt's already storming
hard, and snow on top of all that ice will
make the roads practically impassablcf'
"Mother!" wailed Mary, "Daddy wo'n't let
me go!" As his wife's determined tread re-
sounded through the house, Mr. Raines
winced. A hunted look crept into his eyes
as Mary's mother took the situation into con-
trol. Some minutes later, gasping weakly
after the torrent of words, he made his last
stand. "But Annaj' he pleaded, "1 just den't
want our daughter hurt. I say she can't go."
Two hours later Mary fought her way down
the walk and piled into the already crowded
coupe of her best friend, Mary Smith. The
"Marys" exchanged greetings and paused a
moment to chuckle again over the ever amus-
ing coincidence of having the same first name,
and then they were oft for an evening of

later than they had realized, the happy and
excited quartet of girls made their way back
to the car after having spent an unusually
pleasant evening in the city. WVhen Mary
Smith had some trouble in driving her car
away from the snowy curb, they found it
necessary to get help. But the girls regarded
it as a lark and a fine climax to the evening.
On the way home along the treacherously
smooth road, the raekety little auto gave a
few experimental skids which made its pas-
sengers squeal with delight and animation.
But suddenly and without warning, there was
a deafening crash and the ripping, tearing
sound of a once useful Ford suffering its
After minutes that seemed like hours, a
limp, bedragglcd figure fought its solitary
way out of the overturned car and lost itself
in the driving snowstorm which, after a few
steps, hid even the car from view. The lone-
ly white world i11 which the solitary struggler
found herself was a frightening one. No
lights could he seen in either direction, and
the snow l1id all land marks so well that she
was completely lost even on this familiar
road. Trudging slowly and with effort
through the storm, it was all she could do to
keep to the highway, and the one thought
which kept chasing itself through her mind
was "Get to a house-find a phone-get to a
house-find a phone-get to . . ." The
thought suddenly occurred to her that She
probably could not see if she did pass a
house. Almost totally discouraged by this,
she felt like turning around and going hack,
but she no longer knew the way to the car,
so there was nothing to do but force her way
on into the storm.
Meanwhile the wind was increasing in fury
every minute, and lzack in the Raines home,
Mary's father anxiously paced the floor, his
steps growing longer and longer as his fear
increased. He only paused for a moment to
adju:-.t the radio to the city station, and then
returned to his nervous vigil. Soon, with a
startling suddeness, the announcer boomed
forth, "Conditions are fast becoming serious,"
he said. "The fall of snow has been so heavy
that even the snowplows have had difficulties
on certain of the roads which were icy to be-
gin with. Many of the highways leading
f'ro1n here to surrounding small towns are al-
most impassable and . . ." Mr. Raines had
knocked over the offending radio in his haste
to shut it off.
An eternity passed as he went back and
forth across the floor, and retraced in his
mind his daughter Mary's life. Again and
again he cursed himself and his wife for per-
mitting her to be on the roads in a storm
like this one. Then into the thick silence
the shrill ringing of the telephone cut for
the second time that evening. XVith one
stride he was across tl1e room and at the
phone. "Mr, Raines?" came an unfamiliar
voice. t'There's been an accident-the girl
just made her way to our house a few mo-
ments ago. She says she's af'raid that she's
the only survivor-her name is Mary . . ."
"Thank God," breathed Mr. Raines.

February fourteenth is Valentine's Day,
YVhen most young lovers are very gay.
Howard Koester, a freshman, Qvery smart,
Wished to give her a chocolate heart.
She was a junior a-nd very small
But he, too, was less than tive feet tall.
He thought she was lovely and very prettyg
She didn't ignore him-she thought he was
YVhen that great day came for exchanging
He was very proud of the gift that he'd
W'hen a Senior asked whom it was for,
He said, "My mother, not a girl. No, neverf'
But the Senior ignored the small white lie
'Cause he knew who it was for and why.
The Senior played Dan Cupid's part,
And used the chocolate instead of a dart.
He rushed to her home room to talk to Miss
To explain his errand in evident glee.
Miss Free, smiling graciously, agreed to the
To see if Ardice would blush or not.
Now Ardice, though tiny, with dignity Sweet
Arrived at her home room to take her seat
But Miss Free told her not to be in a hurry,
And gave her the box with pomp and flurry.
"To the Loveliest Girl in the World" it said.
All unruiiled and calm this caption she read.
But poor Howard suffered a lover's defeat
And lost all faith in love complete.
Into this story, the moral we weave,
"Never to wear your heart on your sleeve."

Dick was elated. He had his first car and
it was his opinion that it was the fastest car
on the road. The salesman had told him it
would do one hundred miles an hour, and
Dick had to drive it that fast before long
or he would never feel satisfied.
All this was running through his mind as
he drove swiftly along. Abruptly his thoughts
were interrupted by a man signaling for him
to stop. He stopped quickly, thinking that
perhaps the man was in trouble and he could
be of assistance.
As the car came to a standstill, the man
jumped in and commanded, "Get me to Erie
quick or I'll blow your brains out!"
Now Dick was a brave boy, but the busi-
ness end of a .38 automatic is far from a
soothing touch. Dick compressed his lips
tightly and started the car. fWhen he reached
fifty miles an hour, he did not try to increase
his speed. The man behind him shoved the
gun in Dick's ribs and cooly stated, "I said
quick! If you don't get this old crate up to
ninety, I push you out and drive it myself!"
For the first time Dick was really angry.
"Old crate, huh? I'll show you," and he
slammed his foot down hard on the acceler-
ator. The car began to pick up speed. Faster
and faster it went. Eighty-eigbty-five-
ninety-and still it gained.
It happened when the car reached ninety-
iive. Dick had swerved out to pass a truckg
and just as he came up beside it, a bus came
around the curve less than one hundred feet
away. Dick swerved the car off the road,
over a ditch, and into a tree.
The man had been thrown clear, but Dick
was wedged behind the wheel and the car
was beginning to burn. The man, seeing
Dick in the car wedged behind the wheel,
had for the first time in his life a streak of
When Dick came to three hours later, the

who pinned it there was riding with you

Dick opened it and read "Thanks, boy.
Here is money to pay for your car. If that

But it wasn't, so I think I'll see how far I

There'd be many major changes
If I should run this school.
No student disarranges
If I should run this school.
I'd straighten the kids up with a snap,
I'd put the school upon the map,
l'd show the town that I'm no sap,
If I should run this school.
l'd do away with studies,
And make all homework play.
I'kl make the kids my buddies

And others would see how well we fared
And let me run their school.

Now that our fourth year is closing, we, the Seniors, must bid fond farewell
to our high school days and turn with grim determination to face the world and
strive to obtain that course in life which shall bring,above everything else, happiness.
However, though we may be graduated and no longer he a part of the high
school, long and dear will be the memories of the past four years which have been
spent there. During this time we have made numerous acquaintances, both among
teachers and classmatesg we have known luck, both good and badg we have known
long hours of hard workg we have enjoyed supreme happiness.
To mention each thing we have gained would be a never-ending task. Incidents
and personalities will be endowed in our hook of memories as long as we breathe. I
feel, however, that considering everything, there will be one dominating theme in the
minds of us all. To briefly describe ity, it's this. NVe learned some of it when we
attended the eighth grade. Wfhen we entered as Freshmen, we were somewhat en-
lightenedg and as Sophomores we learned it word for word.
WVhen, we, the graduating class of '40 return to North East High School in the
coming years as Alumni, there will not be one among us who will not rise to his
feet the moment he hears the old "School Song" and "Hurrah for the Maroon and
Gold"-a memory which will have life everlasting!
I sit at ease in a cozy chairg
My thoughts are wandering everywhere.
l'm up in the sky in a keen aeroplane,
Or walking the streets in an April rain.
1'1n saving a life-I'm a doctor now,
And then I'm a farmerette milking a cow.
Pm a practicing lawyer, an attorney at law,
Urging a witness to tell what she saw.
I'm modeling gowns in a style parade,
Or the stalwart commander of a fierce brigade.
I'm a professional skater, a Sonja Henie,
Or a ragged old woman without a penny.
Pm a fearless explorer with Admiral Byrd,
Or the greatest actress that you've ever heard.
I'm a Professor of Science at Harvard or Yale,
Or a government worker-sorting out mail.
I can do everything, or so it seems,
As I sit in my chair and dream thrilling day-

VVhy did we all come to School?
VVas it to learn, or just to fool?
Those who fooled are sorry now,
Because in June the rest can bow.
It really hasn't been so badg

Hardships have faced us, that is trneg
VVhen they come again, we'll know what
Our Freshman year wc were green,
We met things we had never seen.
After a while we began to feel
That we were getting a very good deal.
Our Sophomore year we felt O. K.,
And often you could hear us say
That we were glad to be in school
Instead of in the street being a fool.
The Junior year soon rolled aroundg
lVe had to put our nose to the ground

Once again we were not free.
Finally our Senior year has passed,
The thing we wanted has come at last.
Graduation means more to me
Than anything I"ll ever see.
To the underclassmen I say, "G0odJbye.
From now until the day I die
I'll never forget my dear old school.
Please come to learn and not to fool."

And the wind's goin' mad,

Then freezes up tight,

And streets slipp'ry right.

And your coat needs a pad,

After very careful consultation and intri-

admit that girls, when well-humored and
well-fed are almost human. That is, they
walk, talk, and breathe-although most of
them can't seem to realize. Perhaps it is
their talkativeness that causes the most

INSIDE INCIDENTS DI:
There was a young fellow name "Chet"g
On his prowess with girls I did het.
One day from afar
Came a girl named Mlynar.
I lost. He now calls her "My Pet."
There is a young girl named Joan,
In the future we shan't find alone.
Her heart beats for Bob,
Yet she isn't a snoh.
NVe can tell it is love by her tone.
There is a young girl named "Pat"g
WVe also do call her "Fat".
In games that are hard
She is -al good guardg
VVe'll never forget her for that.
There was a boy named Bart,
Xvho had a stone for a heart.
He danced well you know,
A clarinet he could blow,
But humming a smoke was his art.
Owen and Donald and Ed
Can make a "corn-trio" 'tis saidg
But when Serif says, "Go,"
They all give a blow
And call it a dirge instead.
There's a fellow around named "Killer",
lVho was afraid of a lowly moth-miller.
He picked up a club,
Said, "I may be a dub,
But if it's the last thing I do, I'll drill "'er
NVe all know the girl named Bee Ruth,
YVho, if one were to tell the truth,
VVent out once with Bob,
And sat on a goh
Of gum, on the seat in their booth.
There was a girl named Jean,
VVho was a regular coffee fiend.
But she could bake pies
That would open your eyesg
And I know, for I have seen.
There was a young lady named Tiny:
She had roller skates all nice and shiny.
XVe admit she was limberg
But when she hit the timber
She announced, "Now bring on Miss
The President of our class is named Oweng
It's true that he always is blowin'-
lt's not that he talks
Or whistles and walks,
But he plays the Sax with good showinl
Marge is so clever in writing.
W'ith news she is always inciting
Her victims to rage,
A hysterical stage,
For gossip is not so delighting.
There is a girl named "Punk,"
WVho's always afraid she'll flunk.
Bob thinks she's swell,
And for him she fell,
Now studies to her are the "hunk."
Eleanor's a girl we admire
'Vtfith her hair and neat attire.
She's full of vim,
And never prilng
Her habits we'd like to acquire.
W'e all know our classmate named "Holly"
l'Vho at times has been given to folly.
She Iirst went with Ben,
But never again,
For now it is Harold, by golly!
You all like that fellow named VValter
lVhat he needs is a rope and a halter.
He likes all the dames
And has many flames,
But it's Margie who still makes him falter.
More of these things we just haven't got,
And for these we do hope we're not caught
So we're ending them here
And now make it clear
That we're quitting before we get shot.

There are two things to which I owe
My thanks in every wayg
They've aided me for several years
Up to this very day. ,
They came with me when I was borng
VVithout them I'd be lost.
I would not think of trading them
Or selling at any cost.
Although they're large and awkward too,
They do my work for me.
They take me to and from the school
And serve me tirelessly.
You probably wonder what these areg
And yet to be most true,
I must admit quite honestly
That you have got them too.
The first of these must serve us yet
And work with us some more,
For even though we're leaving school
VVe'll find more tasks galore.
The other one of which I speak
Is more important still,
For we must guide theln straight and far
Up that lo-ng, steep hill.
Together these two form for us
A shield against all ill.
Our hands and feet will serve us long
If we but have the will.
To you underclassmen
We Seniors advise,
Make the most of your studies.
W'e studied four years,
Four years we have yearnedg
Now we can truthfully say,

Down in a meadow where the green grass grows
Is a little swamp where the clear water flows.
Up on the hillside stands a little old shack
YVhere the boards are rickety and the windows crack
Down from the house leads a long crooked path,
Down to the creek where the bull-frogs pass.
Down in the meadow where the lilies grow
Stands a tumble-down shed where the roosters crow.
The owner is old and walks with a cane,
But he hasn't any children to give the blame.
He wears an old hat that is battered and torn,
But he doesn't mind if his clothes are worn.
He hasn't any neighbors for miles around,
And he seldom ever walks to town.
He has only the creek that is flowing by
To keep him company until he must die.

VVhen Grandma was a child?
They really did have fun, you know,
But never acted wild.

And made young spirits lighter.
XVhen we have fun, we celebrate,
No matter the occasion.
Dull parties with us never rate
On any school vacation.

She'd blush and blush for shameg
For when she left her one last vow
VVas "Good things stay the same."

Shock Overcomes Several!
fExclusivc with NEP Newsl-
Flash! Mr. Ralston told a new joke
at a recent Hi-Y meeting. Several
members of the club were serious-
ly affected by the shock, and two
required medical aid. Stanley him-
self seemed a little surprised at
th-e burst of laughter which greet-
ed his story. By a stop watch
which was luckily open, the relat-
ing of the story has been set at ex-
' actly twenty-live minutes and thir-
teen seconds past eight o'clock.
Authorities on Mr. Ralston"s jokes
say that it is absolutely a new one.,
and bets are already being laid as
to how many years it will be be-
fore he tells another new one.
Harold Greenman. philosophic

Your mother should know how
IQACI N I5 N EWS
Bee Ruth Norris, who is filling
her broth'er's place as "Night Rid-
er," is doin-g very well in that po-
sition. However she seems to lack
the speed and maneuverability of
her famous racing brother.
Richard Howard, brother and
protege of Paul "Lucky" Howard,
is the last of the famous racing
Howards. Although new at the
game, he is coming to the toD
rapidly and should be a top notch
winner in next summer's racing
convention. Interesting to note
is the fact that he is not racing
at Sheridan speedway as his broth-
ers did. but has opened up a new
course which runs from his Mid-
dle Road home to East Main St.
via the Orchard Beach Road. This
course has many bumps and sharp
curves in it. thus making it both
diiiicult and dangerous.

A DAY WITH DUI? NAME!
As some "Cooks" rode along the "ifVay" in their auto "Mobilia" at a very
"Goodspced", they saw a "Boyd" perched on a "Post". They met "Stim-son" and
"iVilkin-son" at "Hollister" and "Phillips" where clothes are sold without "Maas" in
them. They had such a heavy "Burden" from the "Baker"y and "iVeinhei1ner"'s
that they got stuck in the "Meyer" and the car "XVas-sink"ing in at an a"Mays"ing
speed. The car "Rief"ed and "stahli'ed.
iVhile in the "Meyer" they saw a "Green man" sitting in a "Palm" tree "er"
swamp tree. They got out their "Shields" to protect themselves from the "Pierce"i'ng
arrows that the unseen "Archer" was shooting at them.
Finally the village black "Smith" came and offered to help them out for several
"Rublc"s. After arriving in town they again met the black "Smith" who had
"Rand all" the "iVay". He was choking so hard that someone cried, "Kant mann",
and you'll feel better.
Next they saw their own team "Lick"ed in a "Ball" game. After a ride on the
"Loop"-O-Plane, they had a good "Meehl" on milk from "Chesleys"'s Dairy and
groceries from "Bemiss" and Stets0n's.

Sometimes I cannot understand
Just why I can't be in the band,
Or why I can't play basketball.,
For me it just w0n't come at all.
But when I think of all my work
That, in school, I have yet to shirk,
I do not feel that little dart
That lies imbedded in my heart.
For in this wide world I have done
My part, my banner has been won.
1 do not feel so dreary now,
For with knowledge this world I will endow.
How pretty it is when the sun sets,
And the day is growing old,
VVhen it falls behind the universe
All purple, red and gold.
How lonesome it seems departing
From this side of the bay.
It hides where no one can see it
Till the dawn of another day.

WITHIN the bounds of these covers we had hoped to
include all our high school memories, but upon exam-
ination found it to be but a mere outline of all those things
of the past four years which we shall ever hold dear.
Our gratitude and sincere thanks are extended to Miss
Nyla Free for her invaluable advice and assistance in lit-
erary problems, to Mr. Davis for his guidance in financial
matters, to Miss Harrison and her typing students who will-
ingly assisted upon request, to all our advertisers and
to anyone who in any way lent his aid..
In the future this book shall serve us as a summary of
the times never to be surpassed, and it is our sincere desire
that in reading it you derive even a fraction of the pleasure
which we enjoyed in making it.
