The total number of graduates is now approximately l5,000. Events of Our This year, in many ways, has been a crowded, "banner" year, in Central's history. On the very first day when school opened in September we were greeted by a new principal and Eve new teachers. The new teachers were Mr. Evans, Mr. Rudy, Mr. Gallais, Miss Knoernschild, and Miss Ochterbeck. Our new principal was Mr. E. W. Alexander, who came to us after serving five years as Assistant Principal of Hadley Technical High School. He has been our guiding spirit during the year, and he has introduced several innova- tions, including two new organizations, the Junior Toastmasters and Junior Toastmis- tresses. His vibrant optimism has helped us carry on through two busy semesters of 1946-47. It is impossible to record here a complete list of the year's events, but we must find space to mention a few of its highlights. In September the chief events were the special auditorium session honoring Mr. Alexander, and the opening of the tennis and football seasons. October saw Central's football team fight- ing valiantly through a tough schedule and her better-than-average tennis team finish in fifth place above Roosevelt, McKinley, and Cleveland. The January class observed Color Day on October 12. Miss Friedman became the sponsor of the Student Council, which conducted the first Community Night Pro- gram on October 25. Central Marches Qnl fTune-Battle Hymn of the Republicl Arranged by VEST DAVIS and ALFRED FRIEDLI Mine eyes have seen the glories of our dear old Central High: They have seen her sons and daughters by the thousands marching by With her banners, Red and Black, so proudly floating in the sky- Whz'le Central Marches On!
