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, Wesfern." "Friends of my youfh, a lasf Adieu! Haply some day we meef again." -The Fasidah
