This is the pioneer issue of The GOLD BUG. It is also
the pioneer class book of A. H. S. There have been no precedents
to follow, no opportunities to profit by the experience of others.
We have had to blaze the trail. ' 1 y
The one hope throughout Was of producing a class book of
which A. H. S. and 1918 could be proud. Whether or not We
have succeeded remains to be seen. If our readers are satisfied,
we have succeeded, and if we have succeeded We are satisfied.
Owing to greatly increased costs of publishing, We have
had to make The GOLD BUG smaller than We should have liked,
omitting features which were highly desirable, because We could
not afford the space they required. Q
This is the class book of 1918, not a school annual, and we
have had to confine our pages almost exclusively to things per-
taining to 1918. eMany things, themselves interesting, have there-
fore been omitted to make room for more timely bits. i
1 It is with the deepest regret that We had to omit pictures
of the athletic teams, but we could not afford to insert them. s
In closing, We Wish to thank the Olass for the Whole-
hearted Way in which they have stood behind us, and to assure
them that their support has been most deeply appreciated. With-
out their undivided support there could have been no GOLD BUG.
VVe have tried our best to make The GOLD BUG Worth While,
We hope We have not tried in vain.-
t THE Enrrons.

MR. C. W. MARSHALL
The Old Building is gone now, and so is Mr. Marshall who
held sway therein. The Old Building has been torn down, Mr.
Marshall has moved away. -
An overgrown red house. Holes in the floor. Cracks in
the walls. Rats. Roll them into one and you have the Old
Kindness. Firmness. Generosity. Friendliness. Human-
ness. Tiikeability. Roll them into one and you have Mr. Marshall.
For every defect or inconvenience in the Old Building,
there Was a counterbalance. 'We didn't object to being forced to
use the Assembly Hall as our home room during the Freshman
year. That was an honor.
Architecturally, the Old Building was not beautiful. Still,
it had an air of old fashioned nobility and d.ignity. This air of
dignity was a great aid to mental effort, as testified by the super-
excellent Work We did there.
Mr. Marshall, HCharlie," was one of our most popular in-
structors. Everyone liked him, and he reciprocated. Never angry
at our breaks and slips, by his understanding and fatherliness he
guided us along the first steps of our High School careers, and it
is with the greatest satisfaction that we call to mind the joyful
days spent in the Old Building.
