X 1.1 "1i -j ,,.-""-T 1 T'1!' . 1 T T - --, Ser'-"i .,,--,....... iii HTSTORYC7 ass T, li: ,T 'saniorff-X' u ss f , 5 f - Q s ' gg The hisTory oT The WesT End Class oT '42 is a chronicle oT Tour slowly moving years oT sTudy. Paradoxically, These same years Tlew swiTTly amidsT Tun and TeTe. A . ' A+ Tips-T' our C1655 r9presenTed a mixTure oT numerous gualiTies and ablllTies assembled Trom various iunior high schools, by our senior year These aTTribuTes had been compounded- and Tempered, and our minds had been Trained To Think clearly, so ThaT we had become a well-organized and broad- minded uniT. This meTamorphosis, This TransTormaTion Trom Trivolous Treshmen To responsible, enlighT- ened seniors, is a dramaTic miracle never To be TorgoTTen. The inTeresT oT our principaluand our Teachers in The successTul ouTcome oT These years called Tor broad vision and inTin1Te paTience.on h ' T T our desire Tor knowledge was inTerspersed wiTh laughTer, aThleTics, and abounding T eir par, or . i . . spiriT. IT would be impossible To recapTure in a brieT accounT The speciTic deTails oT These inspiring rs buT we ho e To porTray aT leasT parTially The spiriT reigning wiThin our class. Yea ' p , , . . . As "seniors" in iunior high--Treshmen in realiTy-we were, wlThin our own liTTle realm, illusTrious h ' T d merel as a and imporTanTg we considered ourselves as eminenT persons. Senior hig we pic ure y curious innovaTion Trom our previous rouTine which we would Take in sTride. When some oT us arrived aT WesT, as sophomores, our supercilious aTTiTude was abrupTly changed ' T T leTe bewildermenT and conTusion We discovered ThaT we were noT so erudiTe as we in o one o comp . had supposed: ThaT we were comparaTively naive and someTimes inane: and ThaT The magniTude oT our new surroundings overawed us. We were deprived oT The assumed superioriTy which we had Tormerly possessed. This ediTice dedicaTed To The educaTion oT youTh, was iTselT hardly ouT oT swaddling cloThes. ln The Two years oT iTs brieT exisTence iT had been painsTakingly developed, and was iusT beginning To assume iTs righTTul posiTon among The similar insTiTuTions oT The ciTy. ln order To mainTain iTs newly-Tound posiTion, The school needed To Train recruiTs Tor The perpeTuaTion oT iTs acTiviTies and ideals. Some oT us were aT TirsT slow To respond To The numerous drives and campaigns conducTed during our sophomore year. Tempered by Those among us who had spenT Their Treshman year aT WesT, however, we soon TelT ourselves a parT oT The school, and we began To Take a genuine inTeresT in iTs aTTairs, We no longer looked upon iT as someThing huge and Toreboding, buT as someThing Tangible, someThing close To our hearTs which we loved and Tor which we were willing To sTrive and sacriTice. This year marked The advenT To WesT's aThleTic power, an evenT which Tended To place our school higher in The public esTeem. ' , Our iunior year was, perhaps, The mosT momenTous oT all The years which we spenT in high school. The class was TurTher uniTed by The rise oT an enThusiasTic school spiriT which grew ouT oT The success oT The TooTball and baskeTball Teams as well as ouT oT our realizaTion ThaT True school spiriT is con- sTrucTive in all iTs maniTesTaTions. A real sTudenT governmenT was insTiTuTed ThaT year wiTh The Tram- ing oT our ConsTiTuTion. Many OT our classmaTes played an inTegral parT in The creaTion oT This governmenT, and some oT Them held responsible oTTices and posiTions in school adminisTraTion. Our Tinal year will be one long remembered by each sTudenT. The aTTack on Pearl l-larbor inTer- rupTed our normal liTeg buT. aT The same Time, iT Tended To sTrengThen and rally us To one cause. The school sponsored paTrioTic campaigns To which every pupil responded, Some Tew oT The boys answered The governmenT's call To arms and all oT us, who remained, conTribuTed To boTh civic and school acTiviTies. NeverTheless, oTher memories shall long remain wiTh usp The boisTerous pep sessions, The monThly gym dances, The conTusion oT Senior Day, The exciTemenT OT graduaTion, These and oThers, which we shall cherish, added To The relucTance which modiTied our anTicipaTion oT graduaTing. AlThough aware ThaT every senior class has similar hopes, we like To believe ThaT, Through deTer- minaTion and perseverance, and The valuable aid oT an undersTanding TaculTy and principal, we have reached The maTuriTy necessary Tor liTe. For we are going TorTh To Tace The mosT chaoTic condiTions which The world may ever experience. IT will require all our inaTe TorTiTude and courage To wiTh- sTand The TuTure years TriumphanTly. We musT prove ThaT our years oT Training have naT been in vain. We musT use The advanTages which have been besTowed so proTusely upon us, To benefif all mankind, IT we are able To do some small biT in alleviaTing The sTaTe oT The world: iT we conTribuTe To The Tinal end oT This sanguinary sTruggle, our years oT Toil will be repaid a ThousandTold, We march Through The porTals oT our beloved Alma lv1aTer wiTh our eyes dim, buT wiTh our chins up and our hearTs sTrong.
