BCDAQD JTIQUS N Q18 "Jack" Short "Pete" Pfrimmer Ralph Royster Oliver Rogers Donald Baird Board President Clerk Many words have been Written and many eulogies spoken in praise of the five men com- posing our Board of Trustees. It has been said that they are men of integrity and character, that they are able and experienced and that they have the best interests of the school always in mind. Yearbooks have bespoken the fact that these men are real citizens, the kind this and every community can use more of. Yet it occurred to this editor that rarely, if ever, has mention been made of the fact that if it were not for a dream of these men, the Class of '53' would not be graduating from this modern lovely plant of ours. These buildings would be no more than plans on paper or ideals in the minds of the poor teachers struggling to hold classes in the attractive but antiquated old building. This quintet of men fostered, nourished, and built that dream of theirs from steel and concrete into a magnificent plant of modern and convenient class rooms and Work rooms. , Here in brief, are listed the main qualities and accomplishments of five men, who qualify as true Spartans, The class of '53' is grateful to them.

ADDNQECIATE The time has come for us to bid, adieu to a great man in possibly his greatest capacity-that of a public high school principal. It isn't a very glorious job, but he has made it full of glory. It isn't a job which carries much honor but he has heaped honor upon honor not only upon himself but upon his school and community. Most people wouldn't think of a principal as being an artist. yet that is how we of the student body see him. An artist, moulding the character, the intellect, the personality, the very lives of students with whom he has come in contact during his thirty years as head of our school. Thirty years of students-some good, some bad-some quick to learn-some slow-witted-some destined to be successes, others, apparent failures. In those thirty years, he has built a school which can hold its own with any high school in the state of California. He has seen his dreams realized in the form of the modern school plant just completed. The life of the com- munity has been greatly improved by his activity and interest. Through the years, into his classrooms have come children of his former students. These new students soon realized that this re- markable man improves with time. They recognize the fact that here is an artist of people and ideas, a builder of good citizens for two generations. However, there must come a time when we should lose the services of our beloved principal. That time has come when he feels that he has served Strathmore in an exclusive capacity long enough. Next year, he will begin a new service of youth which will encompass in one year nearly as many people as he has taught here at Strathmore in thirty years. Yet, we who have known and revered our principal shall always think of him as having a permanent place in this school. Go on, Mr. Lightner, to this position which will bring you so much satisfaction and reward. But take with you always the gratitude and respect of two generations of Strathmore students. So, to you, Mr. Lightner, we dedicate this 1953 edition of the Pleiades with our sincerest hope that the years to come may he as fruitful as those that have been.

CDUIQ DIQINCIWXL l r eeee our School administration might be divided into two parts: the daily routine with no two days the same. and the annual events. The daily affairs come and go more or less automatically. The annual events require time, preparation and anxiety. Most of them require serious consideration. Of these an- nual events I have experienced- 30 first days of schoolg 30 football, basketball and other athletic sea' sonsg 30 Junior and Senior playsg 30 Junior and Senior Banquetsg 30 occasions to complete a full faculty: 30 Pleiades to worry with and signg 30 Board elections to observe vigilantlyg 30 periods to ponder "Will this be it or will I get another year?"g 30 budgets to prepareg 30 summers to rejuvenate, repair, and prepare for another year. During the past 30 years of daily affairs and annual events, I could not have wished for more loyalty and cooperation from students, teachers, trustees and people of the community. I hope this true Spartan spirit will always prevail and that nothing will ever deter the development and in- fluence of the Strathmore High School. May I say :'That's 30 for now" and sign off.
