By Shirley Heihel, A9
Thcre's a land of the open range,
lvherc lh: vsucho, tall and leans
Rides over the plains of wavinjg grain
Through the dust of the Argentine.
ll's a country of vast expanse,
Whose: riches can he seen -
ln ecrn and oats, in hides and heef,
This land of the Argentine.
By Dvnald Jacohs, B9
Music is like life, with fast heats
and slow heats, -
It moves like the rural people,
slowly and carefree,
Or it moves like the city people, x
fast and determined.
Music is like world peace, with 4.
Brahm's Lullaby as the peaceg'
Music is like world war, with the
Warsaw Concerto as the wari
Music is like kings heing crowned
with Pomp and Circumstance.
Yes, music is like life.
By Margarita Ramos. A8
Hills and valleys are cheerful in the
Everything is warm and happyg
Soon everyone is gloomy and
Because a dark cloud is overhead.
The rain comcs down gently,
Making trees slowly swayi
'l lse leaves on the trees are
And lhe hillside looks freshly-washed.

God guides us through our
He must have wanted it that way,
When we try to fool our consciences,
it is c-sa we disobey.
By Nallinc Mershon, B9
A m:u:h is the tramp, tramp, tramp,
Of nn army of gallant men.
A lullahy is the gentle sway of trees
When a breeze is blowing.
A symphony is s king rising
Above evil, and ruling with wisdom.
Music is a bond of friendships
A symhol of human understanding,
A universal language:
lt unites the world in one great song.
Y be Eucalyptm'
By Raymond Terry, A9
Tell they stand.
They guard the gate-
Their trunks rise toward the lkY-
Their limbs slim and graceful,
Their leaves long and sleek.
By Alva Anderton. A8
Sometimes the wind is like a new-
horn lamb on a spring day,
Or it is like n gentle kitten pni-ring
for some milk,
Andi then it is, meek and' afraid that
in might wake sis, X '
The new spring plants Mother
Nature has tucked away.
But sometimes the wind is like s
Rcrdy to spring on its prey,
Vicious and violent,
Ready to strike at
anything that stands in its way.
Home and Get Them
By Then... Russell, A9
It's is fight to the finish when it
The pe0ple who are in it have no
They hump and scrape, and
You would think it was a nightmare
or is had dream.
The doors are open: the crowd runs
The first to the counter is the one
A sign in the window explains the
"Come and get them. ladies! Nylons
By Natalie Alsei-ty, A9
Like playing a fantastic game of tag
l emerge from the mysterious depths
of the ocean
And come tripping in, laughingly
aesigin, the tin, ehilasen
Who watch me lap the gentle shores.
The foam on my crest is happiness
For l am free.
I can see the sky, the seagulls, and
the swaying palm trees.
But now, hack l gn, anxiously
nwaiting my turn to come again.
The Hill in March
By Fred Tschoppi A9
Trll stands the hill, purple and
Stately trecs and winding ravines-
Cocl's work is plainly seen.
On this hill where the winds fly by,
Hear the children play and cryi
Their kittl dance with the wlltling
Then dbwn they come to rest on the
Night is coming and all is still:
Nothing astir upon
All nt once we hear a sound
'Tis the friendly cricket, making
Then l see it in the gray-dim light-
And lhcn it fades,
out of sight.
By csihei-ine Perry, A8
Your lakes so crystal clear,
Your pcalts that tower ahove
Rcstful high mountain meadows
And trnils that we'Ve grown to love.
Your falls that roar and boom,
Your hirds so cheerful and free,
All of you've grown so dear to us,
So dear to us, Yosemite.
You're never away from us-
ln our dreams you are always there
Some day we'll come hack tn you
To stay in your land so fair.

by Joycelyn Compton
Three years at Irving have passed
all too quickly for us A9's, and now
we're ready to continue on to senior
high school. Of course we're glad to
be graduating, and yet we rather
hate to be leaving Irving because that
means we will be separated from
some of the many friends we have
Now that the war is over, and
things are getting back to normal
again, people everywhere are resolv-
ing to make this world a better place
in which to live.
Our class motto, "Conquer Wrong
by Doing Right," expresses what we.
'he younger generation, feel we can
:lo to make this ri better world.
The world is made up of many
szzoups, which in turn are made up of
many individuals, so that if each per-
son does his part to abolish intoler-
ance, prejudice, jealousies, and greed,
his group and his nation will then be
more perfect and this world will be
n better place in which to live.
