• • Shreveport, a City on the Grow ■ Kxhibitin " “Go” personified are citizens of the “City of Byrd.” Tltrough the traditions of Byrd. the future of the city of Shreveport, the pride of I.ouisiana, the hope of America. and the destiny of the worid, B rd students are seen seeking, en- deavoring . . . always . . . to achieve. Byrd ' s Faculty and ad- ministration inspire the students to move on to higher learning, and her Seniors strive each day to he worthy of example. In an effort to reward outstanding achievement, Honors are be- stowed on worthy recipients. A constant movement of Jacket pride coupled with training and skill boosts Byrd’s Athletics, while appreciation of the cultural arts is developed with Music . In an effort to ensure the hope of America, the R.O.T.C . program strives for the marks of excellence. Allowing the cultivation of individual talents, many Activities are continuously on the go through the effort of all the Classes . The “Go” exemplified in the Byrd student body is a direct by-product of its “spirits high and hopes undaunted.” “Shreveport, a City on the Grow” has been well lived up to by this city during the 1961-1965 school year. With the expansion of the citv limits. the opening of new industry, and the large- scale freeway construction, Shreveport has grown. But, as life is neither the wick, nor the candle. but the burning, the pros- perity of these two cities is neither just the “Go” nor the “Grow”, but the endeavors of each citizen to achieve excellence. Mav our cities forever encourage those endeavors, coupled, of course, with “Go” and “Grow” always to be referred to as . . . Shreveport, a city on the grow . . . Byrd, a city on the go. Byrd, a

Another year has passed at the “Citi of Byrd” . . . Another group of sophomores has aeflimated to her school spirit, juniors have added to her achievements and traditions, and seniors are now ready to pass through ner gates and out into the wojrld. As we, the immortal seniors, leave these hallowed halls never to retum again each goes with “spirits high and hopes undaunted.” It is known on every path that Byrd ha trod that her spirit is magnificent. The joyous strrfns of “We are Jackets” linger in her hallowed halls, in the empty stadiums, and in the Jacket’s heart long r than time it- self. Byrd’s hopes, undaunted by skepti ism or defeat, permit her to “lose the batde, but win the war.” It is now that we should bring loyal homa e to the mark of a Jacket—“spirits high and hopes pndaunted.” There is a spirit within the structur of Byrd that has its effect on everyone. The wonder of this spirit is as much a part of each citizen of Byrd ' s city as life it- self. Whether it is planning pep rallies before the Bossier game, raising the Victory-flag pfter a triumph over Woodlawn, giving a standing ovati n to Mr. Koff- man, delivering a Brotherhood speech t«» another local school, getting the last “High Life” with its wills and prophecies, or making straight A’s on that report card. the Byrd students exemplify this spirit. Symbolizing the undying efforts of a team and the unfailing spirit of a Jacket, the song “We are Jackets” best expresses the feeling of those who love Byrd. Its stanzas were the first we wished to learn as a begin- ning sophomore and the last we want to sing as a grad- uating senior. This song could be the battle cry for ev- ery man, for every nation and, indeed, for the world, because it stands for “spirits high and hopes undaunt- ed” — could anything mean more? And last, because hope is the key to the success of Byrd, it is befitting that we should commemorate “hopes undaunted.” If a citizen of the “City of Byrd” is without this hope, he is not a Jacket. However, this hope, that is instilled in each of us, shall not terminate with our passing from Byrd, but shall accompany us throughout our lives. We should enliven this hope with dedication, loyalty, and service to ensure the hope of America. It is with tearful hearts, but warm memories that we seniors dedicate our work. “The Year,” due to endeav- ors of every citizen of the “City of Byrd,” was made a success and shall eternally be remembered. We have experienced honor with just pride, joy with happiness, and sorrow with deep regret, and all of these blessings have left us wiser than before. It is with this feeling of deep meaning that we, the GUSHER staff, proudly dedicate this book to “Spirits High and Hopes Un- daunted.” 4
