We. who are about to graduate into a world swept by war.
present our "Wampum" with a two-fold purpose in mind: to
record our achievements as a class in Warren High School and to
give our solemn pledge that we will devote our strength, our youth,
and our lives, if necessary, to the consummation of the ideals for
which this war is being fought and that we will do whatever is in
our power to bring about a just peace.
Herein, we have attempted to give visual proof that our class
has a creditable representation of distinguished members in both
academic and athletic fields. We hope, in fact we feel sure, that
their combined accomplishments will, in the years to come. add
substantially to the honorable tradition of Warren High School.
Enlarging upon our second aim we feel is hardly necessary.
We are graduating in the shadow of our own personal uncertainty,
and our very heritage depends on victory and on peace in the world
which will emerge from that shadow.
