7 S I " Principal Ervin R. Fletcher 41
To you members of the Senior Class of 1944, Port Jervis High School has
been beckoning for the past six years. The bells of the school have been ringing to
you its message, calling you to your classes, calling you to your many tasks through
which your teachers, parents, and friends have been sincerely trying to aid you to
develop that fine character and those qualities which will enable you to take your
place in life as worthy citizens ofyour community, state, and nation. The hells of
the school have called you to tasks which many times you may have felt were distaste-
ful, summoning you to tasks which in your heart you felt were neither useful nor
interesting. However, you have heard and obeyed as they called you to listen and
to learn. All too often, perhaps, they have not called you to discuss the sterner prob'
lems of living nor to face the realities of life. All too often, perhaps, they have
merely called you to attend school, to be prepared to recite the lessons assigned to
you, and to play when classes were over. They have called you no doubt when yo.:
wished they were far away, when lessons were not so well prepared, and when the
dread of failure loomed large.
The bells of Port Jervis High may soon be silent to you, but there are other
bells calling which are far more authoritative than any you have ever heard. There
is a war to be won, a peace to make, a refadjustment to a life full of great challenges
and complexities. You may hear no tinkling sound as these challenges ring out to
you for they may call to you alone. Let your consciousness fail to hear them and
they will have rung in vain. Will you listen and heed them as they ring? My happy
and very pleasant relations with you this past year have strengthened my faith that

First, lct's look at the school. Don't you agree that we have a right to be
proud of itZ The ivyfcovered walls lend an air of tradition, and the river flowing
in the background gives an impression of beauty. Glennette Field, one of the prettiest
fields in this section, at one side, adds color to the picture too. Who could ask for
a more beautiful setting? That's the gym at this end of the building, th-e auditorium
is at the other end.
Next, come on into the school and meet some of the members of our class.
We had a rivalry, a friendly one, between the senior homerooms 310 and 312. By
it we managed to build up school interest in the sale of war stamps and bonds, the
scrap drive and every other worthwhile project. We were willing and not afraid to
But, there's Bud Fisher sitting over there. He's the class president. We can
always count on him to lead the way in any class activity. That's Bill Niles, the
vicefpresident, talking to Bud. Bill is one of the best athletes of our school. The
blonde girl is Nancy Lain: we depend on her to keep the minutes and to take care
of the correspondence. joan Kinney is a good treasurer toog she knows how to
balance the books. We're glad we chose Elton Barber social chairman: hc's doing
a fine job planning our parties. Phyl Seidler, the girl who is in almost every activity,
is historian. Carolyn Blasiar and Olga Panesis are taking care of the classbook. None
of them can accomplish very much alone: they're being supported by the rest of
Do you want to meet th-em all, every member of the class of '44? Here
they are, singing the song which seems to have been written especially for our class.
