The "El Por+al" comes To us as a piciorial his'rory of rhe adminisirarion, faculfy,
sfudenfs and +radi+ions of Tracy Union High School. We are deeply indebied ro 'rhe
faculiy advisor, Miss Thomas, and fo 'rhe "El Porral" sfaff for iheir unriring eliforfs in
+he developmeni of rhis well organized and accuraie wriH'en record.
The cenrral 'rheme of "El Por+al" is bofh 'rimely and opporlune. The ferm "Freedom"
draws our rhinlcing back +0 'rhe Declaralion of Independence: "We hold rhese Trurhs 'ro
be self-evident fhar all men are creared equal, fhar +hey are endowed by rheir
Crealer wirh ceriain unalienable Righis, rhaf among These are Life, Liberry, and
'rhe Pursuir of Happiness. Thai +o secure rhese righfs, Governmenrs are insrifured
among men, deriving iheir iusr powers from 'rhe consenf of 'rhe governed." The idea
of freedom is so much a parf of our American life and 'rradirion +ha+ we had come ro
fake ir for granred uniil a greaf world crisis shocked us info faking a new view of
rhe fenefs of our Narional Fairh.
School life and +he school curriculum in Tracy Union High School reflecr a defer-
mined desire for Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Self-govern-
menr, and Freedom +o preserve 'rhe "Righ+s of Man." These principles become a
realify in The individual lives of all of us. We hold 'rhe Bill of Righrs 'ro be significanr in
rhe lives of rhe siudenfs. The ideals of folerance and brofherhood find an expression
in fhe social life of rhe young people. Siudenfs are encouraged fo parficipafe in
social acfiviiies and in The acrivifies of sfudenf self-government Srudenrs learn fo
accepr responsibiliry and will carry fhis 'rraining in+o +he communify, in'ro rhe S+a're, and
info fhe Na+ion.
Freedom is nor generally undersrood because we 'rhinlc ser'ousIy of i+ only in ifs
absence, or when if is endangered. I+ occurs ro us Ihaf we are no' free when we are
resfrained from doing somelhing which we wanl' Io do. Freedom is reIa?ive Io our
purposes and desires. We simply 'ralce if for granfed when we have if and we iight for
il when il is almosl or enlirely gone.
The world Ioday is aflame in Ihe grealesl and moslr coslly Iighf lor "Freedom" 'mal
man has ever imagined. Our friends. sons, and brolhers are Iighling, bleeding, and
dying in order Ihal men and women may be Iree. During Ihe war be-Iween 'rhe
Sfares ABRAI-IAM LINCOLN, in his second inaugural address, expressed greal and
beauliiul words which are applicable Ioday. "Wi+h malice Ioward none-wilh charily
lor ali--wifh firmness in Ihe righl, as God gives us fo see 'rhe righl, lei us sfrive on ro
finish Ihe work we are in-'ro bind up Ihe Naliorfs wounds-'ro care lor him who
shall have borne Ihe baffle, and lor his widow, and his orphan-Io do all which
may achieve and cherish a iusl and Iasling peace among ourselves, and wilh all
Nalionsf' The earnesr desire in Tracy Union High School is Ihal Ihe above senlimenls
may become a realify among Ihe people and nafions of Ihe earlh.
