We dedicate the Silhouette of 1943 to those couragious Americans on
the battle fields, in the defense industries, and to all others participat-
ing in America's war effort, since it is these people who are fighting for
our great country so that we and the future youth of America may
continue to live in a free nation where an education like ours is possible.
January 7, 1943
. . . ttAs long as our flag flies over this capitol, Americans will honor the
soldiers, sailors and marines who fought our first battles of this war against
overwhelming odds--the heroes living and dead, of Wake and Bataan, and
Guadalcanal, of the Java Sea and Midway and the North Atlantic convoys.
Their unconquerable spirit will live forever.
ttOur forward progress in this war has depended upon our progress on the
production front. We take off our hats to those responsible for our American
productioneto the owners, managers, and supervisors, to the draftsmen,
engineers, to the workers-men and womenein factories and arsenals and ship-
yards and mines and mills and forests and railroads and farms.
the take off our hats to all Americans who have contributed magnificently
to our common cause?

WE, the Senior Class of 1943 of Scienceville High
School, are graduating into a great world conflict.
Upon us rests some of the responsibility of bring-
ing this conflict to a victorious end. Upon us more
heavily rests the responsibility of bringing and
maintaining an enduring peace in the future.
When peace has enveloped all nations and man
leads his normal life once more, we graduates of
1943 can turn back the leaves of the "Silhouette"
and bring back fond memories of the period of our
lives which we spent at dear old Scienceville High
School. With these thoughts in our minds, we
have contrived to bring together material which
will long endure in our hearts and memories.

I often went with my mother to pick wild blackberries in the fields and
woods when l was a small boy. In those long gone clays much home canning
was done and the rich, tangy blackberries certainly were good in the winter
Most of the time the nicest, juiciest berries were in the middle of the
patch and one had to break a path to them. In the process of breaking
paths and picking the berries from the prickly stems my fingers, honds, face,
and body were considerably jabbed and scratched. The effects of the jabs
and scratches sometimes lasted for several days. However, the pride of
achievement in securing food for winter and the thoughts of rich, tasty jams
and jellies crowded into the background the discomfort of getting them.
School experience should give students enough breadth of view to
understand that many of the good things of life come only after the solution
of difficulties; that in a sense, we are always breaking a path through prickly
The school in cooperation with other agencies should stimulate students
to actively desire the best things for themselves and their community. When
men and women feel deeply about the great ideals of the human race, they
do not notice the inconsequential jabs and scratches of the blackberry bushes:
indeed ,they make the supreme sacrifice without whimpering.
Anyhow, good luck and best wishes for full pails of rich juicy black-
