A scene from the Pan-American Program. And. so, along with other members of the class, I offer to our Alma Mater a smile of sincere thanks for the past, a smile of joyful appreciation for the present, and a smile of hope and determination for the future. After tonight the members of this class will all take separate paths of life. Some will go into industry, some into the business world, and others on to higher education. Whatever direction each may choose, the class expects all to do their best to uphold the honor and high standards of our school. Although our stay at Central has been rela- tively brief, her influence and training will follow us for many years to come. TI-IE STYLE IN SMILES 1947 have you been doing?" "Thirty days." Vile are indebted to many people for the opportunity of attending high school and our free education will always be greatly appre- ciated. On behalf of my classmates, I should like to offer our sincere thanks to the tax- payers of this community who have carried the expense: to our teachers who have handed down their knowledge so willingly, and have so patiently helped us over the rough spots: and to our parents for their aid in furthering our education, thus giving us a better chance to achieve success. We will all try to repay this great debt by becoming good citizens, and by helping to make this a better world for everyone re- gardless of race or creed. St. Louis Central I-Iigh School "I haven't seen you for a month. What Our own, our dear old school! thy praise we sing. lVith deepest gratitude our hearts are filled, For lessons by thy tender care instilled, Which through the years have never ceased to ring Like fog bells on a rockbound coastg they bring A needed warning note: our souls are thrilled With dread of danger lurking near. So skilled Thy work, it taught with finished art the thing That men most need to know, how best to live The truth that makes them free to choose the life That more abundant is. untouched by strife Of warring passions-strong and fierce, constrained By love of righteousness themselves to give To service of mankind, with wisdom trained. -W. J. S. BRYAN. 14

The Ninety-Fourth Anniversary Reunion On February ll, 1947, a reunion was held at the school to celebrate the ninety-fourth anniversary of the founding of the school. There were about four hundred present at this meeting. Our mailing list was very in- complete. and many who would have at- tended didn't learn about the meeting until it was over. The speakers on the program were representatives of the classes which graduated 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years ago. Among these were Sidney Corson 119375, Norman C. Parker fl927j, and Alfred Fleishman 619221. Vocal solos were given by Charles Burmeister and Ed Nolte, a dance number by John Berger, an accordion solo by Wenzel Eberhardt. Mr. Weir made one of his crisp, enjoyable speeches. We were also favorably impressed by the new principal, Mr. E. W. Alexander. Margaret Euerst 119411 was chairman of the program com- mitte. At this meeting Paul Mulcahy, whose prodigious efforts made it such a success, re- signed as president, and Charles Cirippi was voted in as his successor. Lucille McCann was re-elected secretary, and Robert Wellman was chosen treasurer. After the election, Cirippi pleaded that it was impossible for him to take the presidency because of his status as a busy G. I. college student. Miss McCann also insisted on re- signing as secretary since she is to be out of the city this summer. At a hurry-up emer- gency meeting the following agreed to take over for the rest of the year: Preslidenl ............,............, ...NORMAN PARKER, '27 319 N.

VEST DAVIS, '09 Central High School-JE. 7949 The Nlilce Walker Dinner Early during the winter, plans were under way to give a testimonial dinner to Central's most famous coach, Michael W. CMikeD Walker, who retired last September. A com- mittee consisting of Joseph E. Holland. Stratford Lee Morton, Sidney Maestre. Al- fred Eleishman, and James E. CJimmyj Con- zelman, was selected to set the date and make the arrangements. The Alumni Association officers gave their full cooperation, and the dinner was held at the Chase Hotel on March 27, 1947. It was a grand reunion attended by many of Central's famous old grads, who turned out in force to pay tribute to their Alma Mater and to their beloved coach and friend, Mike Walker. Many letters and tele- grams poured in from those who were unable to be present. Dozens of tributes were paid to Mike for his gentlemanly qualities and sportsmanship. He responded with a fine talk that displayed his characteristic modesty and sincerity. Talks were also made by Presi- dent Putney of the Board of Education, Supt. Hickey, Mr. Alexander, Mr. Ben H. Barr. Stratford Morton, Talty O'Connor, and Wil- lis Johnson of the Globe-Democrat. The chicken dinner was good, too. Mr. Walker's main suggestion was that Central should have a magnificent new building in which to cele- brate its 100th anniversary in 1953.
