Many students have left these halls endowed with a greater knowledge of the world around them. Here they have been taught the fundamentals, as well as how to cope with their problems. This is the main building or entrance. In it are the library, science lab, and office. This history, English, mathematics, and commercial departments are also here. The main part of the building was constructed in 1931-32. This was then a high school campus only. In 1947 it was combined with the elementary school As we tour the rest of the campus, we would like to remind you that a lot of hard work has been done on the buildings as well as inside them. Please be careful for these halls are revered by many. SCROLL Memory is when you look back and the answers float in to who? what? when? where? The members who were there then are repeated on a screen are recalled on a scroll are moved in a miniature drama, are collected and recollected for actions, speeches, silences, set forth by images of the mind and made in a mingling mist to do again and to do over precisely what they did do once-- this is a memory-- Sometimes slurred and blurred-- this is remembering-- Sometimes wrecking the images and proceeding again to reconstruct what happened and how, the many little involved answers to who? what? when? where? and more involved than any how? how?

And a verse of a Lapland song Is haunting my memory still: "A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts. I remember the gleams and glooms that dart Across the school-boy's brain, The song and the silence in the heart, That in part are prophecies, and in part Are longings wild and vain. And the voice of that fitful song Sings on, and is never still: "A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts. There are things of which I may not speakg There are things that cannot dieg There are thoughts that make The strong heart grow weak, And bring a pallor into the cheek, And a mist before the eye. And the words of that fatal song, come over me with a chill: "A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts. ' Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Tr T' 'Q' fl!

And the verse of that sweet old song, It flutters and murmurs still: "A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts. Strange to me now are the forms I meet When I visit the dear old town, But the native air is pure and sweet, And the trees that o'er-shadow each Well-known street, As they balance up and down, Are singing the beautiful song, Are sighing and whispering still: "A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts. And Deering's Woods are fresh and fair, And with joy that is almost pain My heart goes back to wonder there, Andamong the dreams of the days that were, I find my lost youth again.

This year they sponsored a movie, "Song of the South," to raise funds for the book. Taking pictures was an important part of their work, Besides pictures for the yearbook, they supervised the photographing of both elementary and high school students. More funds were raised by selling personal cards and invitations to the seniors. In November Mr, Wright, their publish- ing company's representative, came and the staff selected the color and design of the cover and talked over other yearbook prob- lems. The yearbook and Beta float was deco- rated in blue and white. A scroll which was placed upon it read thus: "When the one great Victor comes . . . To write beside your name . . . He writes not if you won or lost . . . But how you played the game. " Riding the float was lovely Joan Levins, a sophomore. She was arrayed in a gown of yellow and held a basketball trophy.

For several years it was necessary to limit mem- bership to students who have taken general science, as many as sixty-nine being mem- bers in 1955. Various programs have been presented, though nothing so spectacular as a sputnik launching. With national interest focused on the sci- ence programs in our secondary schools, the club hopes in the future to foster interest in science. The club is considering a science fair and some individual projects for mem- bers. Although our members have not been able to compete up to now, several scholarships are available to outstanding students, some on a competitive basis others upon recom- mendation of principal and teachers.

X H r a .Lg A, r if . ol J Vernon High School Student Council saw its glorious beginning in the year of 1948-49. The constitution had been written the previous year. In 1955-56 the council took as a pro- ject Lhe buying of curtains for the audi- torium stage and windows. Progress has been some what slow on this project. However this year the other school clubs have combined their efforts on this pro- ject with the counci1's. In 1956 and '57, the council spon- sored and planned homecoming activi- ties. For two years the group has been responsible for assemblies, fire drills, and hall traffic plans. This organization works constantly for an improved school and better stu- dents. This year the council plans to draw up a new constitution. lt also plans to continue with the other, older projects. ,n.s...... . , k iili'-"i'f?5i5fa,j'-4'f:'s': -T.fgziesxifxzsii-gags-st, -f:5,i:ff3?:-"4 QQ -gs. 1 -'7-z--- -QV W ur- 77.4.35 . .

From one grade to another. We studied hard and we played hard. We fought and we made lasting friendships. We remember the day we moved into the building. It was really a wonderful and exciting day. We had been going to school in various places since the old elementary building had burned to the ground in 1946. The old building was located downtown in front of the Methodist church. lt consisted of grades 1-6, and contained two-stories. The present elementary school was constructed in 1947-48. This is the court between the elementary and high school buildings. The auditorium is the third side of the court. IM .-ggfur. WJ' fv-f "I do believe the world is swinging toward the light. " So spoke a soul on fire with holy flame. Amid the dark such faith pierced through the night, The dreamers wrought, and living fruitage came. To give of self and not to count the cost, To learn, to teach, to labor, and to pray, To serve like Christ the least, the last, the 1ost--- These were the beacon fires that lit the way.

TO AN ATHLETE DYING YOUNG The time you won your town the race We chaired you through the marketplace, Man and boy stood cheering by, and hom brought you shoulder-high. Today, the road all runners come, Shoulder-high we bring you home, And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town. Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay, And early though the laurel grows, It withers quicker than the rose. So set, before its echoes fade, The fleet fast on the sill of shade, And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge-cup.
