It may be interesting to our readers to know that our V. H. S. is
thirty-six years old today, that it had its beginning in a single base-
ment room in the old Central School 5 that thirty-two years ago last Fri-
day our first graduating exercises were commemorated in the old "Stan-
dard Theatre" which burned to the ground last winterg that for the first
twenty years of our history the average enrollment was only sixty-eight
and that the highest enrollment in any one of these twenty years was
ninety-four. At the close of the war in 1918 we had reached a total of
379. But during the past five years our enrollment has more than dou-
bled and for the present year 845 names appear on the register. Who
will venture a guess for 1930?
It may be interesting fu1'ther to recall that fourteen years ago this
Commencement Week our Alki made its initial bow to the students and
faculty of the Vancouver High School and to the public who have so
generously supported our efforts and our ambitions and provided for
our growth. With this number the Alki makes its fifteenth annual
appearance. It is a storehouse of information on high school life and
activities. Its value will increase as the years go by. When those of us
who today are struggling for honors side by side on the athletic field and
in the gym and shops and classrooms are widely scattered, what a pleas-
ure it will be to pick up our Alki and con its pages for familiar faces,
for school-day jokes and pranks, for all sorts of happy experiences-
football victories, and defeats, "midnight oil" burned over Caesar's bierg
tardy room joys and sorrows, and a thousand other conquests in chemis-
try, mathematics, gymnasium and kitchen. All these and more the
pages of the Alki will bring back to memory after years have separated
us from these care-free days and moonlight strolls.
And our Alumni-704 of them-to whose ranks the class now pub-
lishing this Alki will add eighty-th1'ee more-what shall we say of them?
It would be difficult to find anywhere a more splendid or representative
group of young men and young women than these 704, and the class of
1923 will be p1'oud to join them in their duties and responsibilities to the
communities they serve. Natu1'ally they are widely scattered since the
first class was graduated thirty-two years ago but a hurried glance over
the field of their activities in our own community reveals their connec-
tion with almost every worthy occupation. They are our doctors, law-
yers, dentists, teachers, bankers, farmers, manufacturers, machinists,
engineers, editors, publishers, county officials, army officers, dairymen,
railroad builders, bookkeepers, stenographers, clerks, draftsmen, lumber-
men, merchants, etc. We find them associated with the churches, the
booster clubs, the Kiwanis, the Rotary, the Prunarians, and the fraternal
orders. And best of all they have made good-good mothers, good
fathers, good citizens.
