To view a school of then and now would be to see greatly contrasting scenes. The early school houses were crude, uncomfortable, poorly heated and lighted. They were very different from the modern schools with their up-to-date equipment including gymnasiums, libraries, and cafeterias. The teachers were barely removed from illiteracy, and school was attended only two or three months in a year. Much opposition rose against free edu- cation. Religious denominations were of the opinion that education should be closely tied up with religious instructions. Others argued that education for the masses was dangerous. Hope for the new order seemed lost when Thaddeus Stevens, rising in defense of his cherished ideas, turned the tide, and free education was saved. It took a great many years to bring us a fully equipped school such as our own Keith Junior High School, but we who are leaving it now, after three happy years of enjoying its many advantages, are grateful to those who, years ago, helped to pave the way. FAREWELL The end has come to this, as it must to all things, for only through endings are new beginnings made possible. It is the fate of man that he can never rest. It is the fate of life that it must ever change. But as the dropping leaves of Autumn give to us the promise of the new awaken- ing, so the closing leaves of text books give the certainty of new advancement. The close, or what we call the close, is therefore not the end at all, but merely a transition, a gateway to more and higher knowledge. But yet when endings come, who can think about beginnings? At times like this, transitions matter little. Gateways lead from daylight into dark- ness. It matters only that a change is made and there is something sad about a change. Yet one must always change, and always with the secret fear that the old was somehow better. Each thing gained has brought its cost of something lost, and with each bit of knowledge comes the more acute proxim- ity of change. And there is something sad about a change. It is at once the greatest tragedy of change-and yet, the greatest blessing- that it cannot quite erase its memories. So let it be with us as we leave here. The only promise that we dare make to you is this: No matter where the fates decree that we shall go when we leave here, to that place, too, shall go the memory of you and all you mean to us. What's more to say? Farewell. Andrew Ritter, 9 OFF FOR VACATION What are you going to do this summer? Right now those long lazy days of summer stretch out endlessly in our anticipation. But we know from experi- ence how quickly they pass and how soon September comes to call us back to the duties and pleasures of school. We leave now, to go our separate ways. Some will enjoy trips to far places, some will find at home the many things there are to do on summer days when one has lots of leisure time. ' We say goodbye to you now, until Autumn again brings us all together to miss the old faces and welcome the new. 'NUFF SED Look closely, dear children, for this will be the last of our columns for you to see. lk if 'lf We don't feel a bit funny. Somehow we thought we'd be all elated when we finished Junior High School. But this business of leaving isn't as joyful as we expected. No sirl l K 8 Oh well! We can take it. Let's look around for something that might amuse you. lk I lk It takes a science division to play a. scientific game of baseball-Yes, scien- tific goes for 9-5-The champion team. IP lk i Well, at last! Nice weather for the May Day affair. Our hats are oft' to the girls who Won the dodge ball game. 4 lk Sk And next year from the football stands, our eyes will pop with admiration for the new Keith band uniforms.

We actually saw four girls hooking ice. , 3 ll fl We don't see how the future ninth grade corridor patrols can possibly shout, "Stay in line," and "Keep to the right" as well as we did. Just do your best, infants. A man can do no more. 8 ll' lk So you don't think this was funny? Wait 'till next year, when the bitter tears of farewell are falling fast Csee that big splash just abovej and you try to write cheerful little ditties. We bet you can't do it either.
