FAREWELL FROM SENIORS
-Paf Sfed man
Graduafion, I947-a day fo remember! And we Seniors of '47 will
remember much more, foo. Above all, we'll remember and miss Wesfern
and all fhe fhings she sfands for. Wesfern fo us isn'f iusf a large, red
brick building info whose corridors we passed as freshmen and from whose
doors we now leave as alumni: no, if is more fhan fhis. Wesfern High is a
massive composife of fhings fangible and infangible, realifies and ideals.
lf's seeing fhe frees in fhe park begin fo furn green in April, wafching
fhem deepen info gold in Ocfober, and glimpsing fhem shimmering icily
in December. lf's wondering how we could possibly cram all fhose fhings
which we were supposed fo have learned, buf didn'f, info our heads on
fhe nighf before exams and frying fo undersfand iusf why c21a2+b2
when we had Spring Fever. Perhaps, if is fhe familiar carvings on fhe
desks we saw each day, fhe bell ending our lasf class, fhe whiff of chlorine
from fhe pool, fhe brighf colored fickefs in our season pass, record periods
fhaf seemed so much beffer when ambling fhrough fhe halls, and lengfh
of fhe sfairs when fhe lunch bell rang, and fheir shorfness when we were
wifh someone we liked. lf's falking in hoarse whispers from cheering af
fhe big game, or sipping a coke before Senior commiffee meefings, or
chasing each ofher up and down hills on Oufing Day, or, maybe, laughing
af our own sedafeness in cap and gown. This is whaf we're leaving! If you
fook her building away, Wesfern's spirif would sfill be fhere-and fhaf's
whaf really counfs. We'll miss you, Wesfern, for where else can we find
fhe friendship and sporfsmanship fhaf we found here! May you always
serve and encourage fhose who come affer us as you have done us.
Sadness af parfing wifh fhe maker of our mosf pleasanf memories fills us
as fhe Seniors of I947 fake fhis lasf opporfunify fo say: "goodbye,
"Friends of my youfh, a lasf Adieu! Haply some day we meef again."
