Text from Pages 1 - 74 of the 1942 volume:
Success remember IS the reward of toll
I have known dawn s sfrange cool shllness
A shllness as holy as prayer
l have 'lhrllled 'lo +he crashing crescendo
Of a sunsef foo blazing fo bear
l have heard In fhe blaclc musfs of mldmghf
The silver loned music of sfars
l have known fhe sfale calm of fhe wlndless seas
Thai' precedes 'I'he enfrance of Mars
Far over lhe wide heaving ocean
The beauly fhaf daybrealr should hold
ls blasfed and 'lorn from +he shrieking ear+h
Then fhe silence of ashes and cold
The ending of day IS a sunsel
Colorless s+agnan'I' grim
ln +he moonlighr fhe hideous slculls of men
Lie deaf fo Mars frumpefed hymn
You who found birfh under freedom's flag:
While dynas+ies shaffer-hold 'fasl
To your fore'fa+her's dreams of fhe slafure of man
Of His herifage-born of The pasl.
Your life mus+ affirm fhaf a freer world
Will survive 'lhrough fhe darlmess of night
ln your fai+h lies fhe hope of our freedom.
You're 'lhe symbol of dawn's growing lighf.

Commencing with the opening of school, the
band devoted itself mostly to marching and foot-
ball games. Our maiorettes, Mildred Neves, Doro-
thy Gerlach, Stella Simpson, and our drum major-
ette, Dorothea Reeve, learned many new twirls and
struts which they have used and have taught to
other twirling fans. Our band, under the able direc-
tion of Mr. Schulenburg, helped to lead the Bull-
dogs to victory this year. Some of the most out-
standing activities of the band were parading as
guests at the University of Hawaii vs. College of
