THE 'ANOKAN Class History Pioneers are we: yes, just as true pioneers as those adventurous forefathers of ours who dared the storm-tossed Atlantic: who pitted their strength against cold, hunger. and disease: who valiantly struggled across the vast plains-seelv ing new worlds to conquer. We are the sons and daughters of the pioneers of the middle west. Through the four years of high school we have worked and toiled with what have seemed to us mighty problems: but these have been but foot-hills to the mountains that lie beyond. As Freshmen, the mountains were merely a line on the horizon. What they were, we did not know, but the pioneer spirit within us bade us "Westward Ho!" Through the second year, we saw them a little more distinctly in the distance, and our third year found us ready to climb the last hill that leads to that towering peak whose summit lies covered with clouds, and beyond, the golden fields of the harvest. At last we have scaled the hills--now we must be trail-blazers. Noi longer will our paths be laid out by fathers, mothers, and teachers. Alone we must climb. We must push on for new worlds to conquer, for we, too are pioneers. -FRANCES JoLLY. Senior Class ADv1soRs Mr. Heinemann Miss Miller MoTTo: "Forward!"
