Qjracluafion of 66156 JS 214
On the athletic field dedicated to former NH principal,
Mr. Claude Sandifur, two hundred and eighty graduates
will assemble to receive their diplomas,
A boy or girl may face many occasions in his or her
life which may be destined to remain long in the memory,
but at the time of graduation, there is a particular senti-
mental note. Parents gather to see their sons and daughters
ready to accept the responsibility of adulthood.
This graduation is very special, indeed. Our country
is involved in a conflict from which none of the graduates
can be excluded. Boys and girls are takin positions in
the world for which their parents did not gan . . . boys
become men, fighting heroes, girls become women, cour-
ageous defenders of all that is good.
That is how the inscription reads on the diplomas . . .
"the groundwork for your life has been laid, it is your turn
to use it wisely."
Two hundred and eighty students of the graduating
class of Summer '44 gathered together to display their
senior sweaters. With a roar of applause, members of the
eleventh and twelfth grades expressed approval of the
slate gray-royal blue combination. The sweaters are in the
same colors as the colors that the North Hollywood High
School has adopted.
Once a year, tradition marks the celebration of the
Seniors' pre-announcement of graduation with class day. In
a fitting manner, the Seniors make the announcement by
dis laying the sweaters which have come to symbolize the
high rank of a Senior A in the High School.
All of the Senior students, proudly showing off their
And so, with great ceremony, seven Ephebians are com-
mended on their excellent scholarship and high ideals
which all Americans represent.
"What America Means to Me" was the topic chosen by
the Valedictorians who speak for the class.
Mr. Roscoe L. Frasher, rincipal of the school, will
present the class and award flue diplomas to the graduates.
At every graduation ceremony, specific awards of schol-
arship are awarded to deservin students. The boys' vice-
principal, Mr. J. C. Holt, wig present the "awards of

merited prizes, stood before their audience and sang the
class song, which was composed by Bob Cushman with
lyrics written by Marilyn Hoffman and Mary Louise
The singing of the class song was the climax of an hour's
program in which much of the talent of the Seniors was
exhibited. The performers were Bill Collins, joan Dona-
tella, Mary Lou Deyling, Bill Crandall, Walter Mikesell,
Gary Ross, and Class president, Emcee, Victor Basche.
And when the processional was played, the NH student
body watched the Seniors march down the aisles in antici-
pation of another day soon to come . . . the day of graduation.
