We, the staff of the 1944 classbook, have endeavored to paint
a trueftoflife picture of our four years 'spent in Port Jervis High
School and to present it in such a way that others may share a small
part of it. NVe sincerely hope that this book will serve as a connecting
bond between our school days and future life.
Hello! It has been a long road, but at last we.. are nearing
the end. Not .all of -us are here now: some were lost,-.during .the journey:
many moved to different cities, and others joined the -farmed services
of our country. Still the class of 1944 has moved! forward.
For long years we 'have been wandering around! thevlocker-

old songs, new songs: "Oh, High School Chums," ............ "I-t's a. Grand
Old Shack," ,,,.,,,,.... "When P. jfs Men March Out and Fall in Line,"
............even "Lay That Pistol Down, Babe."
Now, before we leave, walk along with us in those last few
steps, share with us memories of our high school days, laugh with us,
work with us, and join with us in singi-ng a few more songs, happy
songs full of friends and gay experiences and glad remembrances which
we have so richly shared.”
