The year 1943-44 will long be remembered as one of the great years
of the Second World War. This year has seen the launching of heavy
offenses by Allied troops against the 'ruthless Axis powers. Many great
Allied victories on the road to total victory have been achieved in the
last few months.
The demands of war have been felt by the students at Southeast as
they joined in the work of the Victory Corps and the Junior Red
Cross and in the purchase of war stamps and bonds. War has affected
the study program of the upperclassmen. Some of our boys took the
Army A-12 or Navy V-12 examinations and have entered college under
one of these programs.
Realizing the importance of air power in the conflict, other boys,
as well as some of our girls, entered the new course, aeronautics. They
were thinking of the Peace that will inevitably follow and the air age
which will come with it.
Many are studying the Spanish language, looking forward to the
day when they will fly, in a few short hours, between here and Mexico
or South America. Both business and social relations with our neigh-
boring Latin-American friends will be close then and a knowledge
of their language most essential.
It is to these farsighted people and others like them who believe
that airplanes will endure past the present conflict and become mes-
sengers of goodwill in peace rather than carriers of destruction in
war, that this book is dedicated.
The school is a giant airfield. We see the freshmen as little trainer
cub planes, while a senior is compared to a mighty flying fortress.
Every plane must have a commanding officer and one to steer the
plane, so Southeast has supreme leaders, Mr. Harry McMillan, our
pilot, and Mr. George Powell, our co-pilot.
How lost we would be without our navigators-the counselor, the
office force, and the teachers-who chart our course through high
school. The ground crew-hall guards, round table representatives,
collectors and assistants to the nurse, to the librarians, and to the oflice
force-keep us in good running order. And too, there are formations-
the numerous clubs and organizations, and pleasure rides-talent as-
semblies, plays, mixers, and "Knightlites"-which we greatly enjoy.
Thus it is that Southeast fits into the pattern of a gigantic, forth-
coming air age.
