,xgbw 235,t c 'JheOWENSBORAN . , Ra.. I l f if OUR ALMA MATER r OW that we have left to us so short a time to stay, We see more clearly than ever before the things that we love and admire in 5 O. H. S., and realize how great a part of us we shall soon be leav- . ing behind. Perhaps, up to this time, we have not fully appreciated all T that our Alma Mater has meant to us in these four years-now all but ' , finished-of our high school career, all that she will mean to us in the future. " f For a school must not be judged only by the influence it has on its .I- students now, but to what extent that influence will be felt in the years 52, that confront th-ose students after their graduation. This is the true g - test of a school, its ideals, its traditions, its all-durability. No influence f can be long felt unless it is founded upon practicability-unless it can stand the hard usage of many years. We may well take pride in saying that those beliefs and those characteristics around which the real Owensboro High School is built are the kind that are warranted to wear W for years and years. lx What are some of these ideals, then, of which we have spoken? First T of all, there is the idea of co-operation. There is no bigger word in all the English language than "together"-no phrase more absolutely necessary H t-o achievement of any kind than "team work." A school, in order to 5 function properly as a school, should be made up to the last one of stu- dents thoroughly imbued with the idea of co-operation. But there are more requisites than this for the student whose Alma - Q Mater is the Owensboro High School. It is by no means the wish of that 5 institution that each one of its graduates should be just like all the rest. 9 Its aim is to bring out individuality yet bearing the st-amp of the best ,, ideals of O. H. S. The kind of boy and girl, then, that goes into the mak- - ing of our student body, must and should be one of our most cherished - I ideals. There is the idea, too, of straightforwardness in everything-hitting L. t straight from the shoulder-playing the game square-realizing that p it's only how you play that counts. It's all right to want to win, of course, , and it's better to work to win-but it's best of all to remember that the ,A true sportsman's spirit is "not the quarry, but the chase." And that has always been the theory and the practice of O. H. S. We are proud that l it has been, proud that it is, and proud that it is to be in future years. if And now has come our time to go. We are leaving a great deal be- gf hind us-old friends and associations and good times, but the biggest thing and the best we can take with us Wherever we go-for the high ideals of O. H. S. can never be lowered and never will grow old. ' '- Ellen Hart Smith '27. . W4 7 Page Eight 4' l
