The Passing of the Torch
9 ones who view a calamity, but can not lift a hand to stop it in its
progress, the P. H. Sngraduates of 1927 watched their Alma Mater being
consumed by hungry flames and finally settle as a heap of ruins. They
thought of the past with its memories of four years spent in trying to make
their school something more than an object erected with building materials,
their thoughts turned to the present and saw in it nothing of gain, but
quickly they began to conceive of the future. Theirs was not the time to
linger longer or to aid in the rebuilding of a new school to house the
memories of their past. Theirs was but to set an example of the true
Viking Spirit by facing the problems of the present and to "pass the torch."
The task of rebuilding a school of "sand and mortar" and to equip it
to the best of their ability was given over to the citizens of Puyallup.
To the students of the graduating classes of the future they willed the task
of restoring to the new building all of the memories, traditions, and honor
of the old. Also they asked that they would support the Puyallup people
in their work.
As members of the graduating class of 1928, we, too, are coming to
the end of our work. It is now for us to answer to the bequests of those
who went before. As for the citizens of Puyallup, they have done their
work well, Their spirit has been of the best and tirelessly they are going
about the work set before them. In answering for ourselves, our conf
sciences are clear. We have undergone handicaps, we have worked under
difficulties, and yet we feel that we have carrid our burden successfully.
The students have cooperated with the public in furnishing the new build'
ing. They have, as far as possible, carried on the school activities without
a break, and the athletic teams have fought hard on a field of honor--
more cherished than victory, though victory was not lacking. .
Here we halt and here we pass the torch on to those who are to follow
usgmay it never burn out.
