Faculty and students realize vast benefits
Students should not wait until their
senior year to set their high school goals
and begin to work for them. Scholas-
tically and socially, the underclassmen
begin early to give their best to the
school and other students in return for
abundant knowledge and enjoyment.
After a few failures and many successes,
the goals the underclassmen have set
for themselves become realities. No
longer does graduation seem a far away
Enthusiastic underclassmen begin a ser-
ies of cheers at an all-school assem-
bly. Each class, having its own person-
ality, expresses itself accordingly.

Varied trophies indie
Victory does not happen alone and cannot remain
alone. More times than not, success is preceeded
by a chain of failures, but only those victories that
have been hard fought for are worth having. llolding
onto a victory is sometimes much harder than it
would seem. One must profit from victory by moving
on to further goals. Ovid, a lloman poet, once ad-
vised, "Either do not attempt at all or go through
with it." just as one should not wallow in defeat,
neither should one gloat in victory. When a person
has achieved success, that is the time to fight or
work harder than ever before.
The students of Southfield High School have
found the key to victory. Southfield can boast at
least one successful achievement in each phase of
its academic, sport and social life. But, as un-
satisfied teenagers, the students keep looking to
future projects that offer challange and excitement.
Whether the attempt ends in victory or defeat, there
is a reward. For even a defeat carries with it a
unique type of victory.
Each class upon entering Southfield, adapts
quickly to the new environment and begins the long
road to the final victory. Class members leave their
victorious symbols behind them. That is what has
made Southfield the great school it is today.
Trophies given for victories in various
fields take all sizes and shapes. At left
is a small sampling of the large col-
lection of trophies that Southfield boasts
in its many showcases. Included are
symbols of victory in the fields of foot-
ball, cross country, swimming, baseball,
debate, Homecoming, Senior Government
Day, dramatics, scholarship, and gradu-

of education and fun
Although academic education is the pri-
mary purpose of a high school, outside
activities play a large part in the develop-
ment of young people. Southfield's 31 clubs
and organizations offer each student a
chance to pursue his individual hobbies or
interests. New challenges 'are met and con-
quered, and these achievements become a
lasting benefit to the high school and the
individual. Pride, too, encourage the student
to be as much a part of his school as pos-
