We think that through pictures, write-ups, the art work, and other features this aim has been accom- plished. A new style of write-up, the Walter Winchell type, has been adopted to vary and enliven the pages; it also allows more to be written in a limited space. We hope that our book makes you real- ize the value of friends and happy associations. Twc S )Tnbols of Tvorl( and play . . . All make for richer and fuller life. Boucher gymnasium . . . Home of the Vikings . . . Athletics aiid school, inseparable. DEDICATION life T the spirit of those extra curricular activ- ities which are so extensively organized and carried out in our school do we, the Senior Class of 1934, dedicate this, our VALENIAN. The comradeships and good fellow- ships that have been created through these associa- tions have fostered an attitude of hearty co-opera- tion indispensible to the school. May these organi- zations continue to function and grow in the name of the school and friendship. Thr.
