38 THE ORIOLE SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY W E are told that “history repeats itself” and this is very true. Our class has traveled the same road as the class before us, even though each succeeding year may bring improvements and advancements that experience may suggest. Vet there is a difference ; each individual member brings into the class their own individuality and carries away with them all those things of value, that industry and hard work have given, leaving the storehouse of Knowledge as full and com- plete as before, awaiting the coming of our successors. We are happy now that we stand at the half-way point and are able to view with satisfaction the accomplishments of two years of high school life, and looking forward with eager- ness, shall go to meet all those joys and sorrows that lie hidden in the days that will make up the next two years. We are proud of our past history and gladly await the future. It is true that as the road gets higher and steeper some may falter by the wayside, growing weary, or others may turn out of the path and fall asleep in the shade of the trees or even turn back altogether; but we are sure that the class of ’24 will press on with flying colors until we reach the top. Some history is dull and uninteresting, but to us the past two years is not so. Our High School experience is full of vital interest. Each happening will be remembered and cherished in the years to come. As we have studied each subject taught us and have noted the unfolding of the mysteries in Science, Latin, History, English, and Mathematics, we have wondered sometimes “what is the use,” but having been told that by some mysterious process, only understood by our teachers, that it is for the development of our minds, we have blindly stumbled on and watched our heads grow larger, even if our shadows have grown less. To our teachers and their untiring efforts in our behalf, we wish to express our highest appreciation. They have certainly worked wonders and we hope some day to see them partly repaid. To the Ereshmen we say, “Step up higher,” and we shall take our stand as Juniors with renewed determination to make a high record, to do our best to maintain that high standard of the past, and at the end of the road of Knowledge to be able to say, “V enimns, vidimus, vicimus. " Martha Cosby Derrick, ' 24.
