This year the one-hundredth anni-
versary of free education is being cele-
brated throughout our State. These
hundred years have been a century of
progress. To view a school of then and
now would be to see greatly contrasting
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
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.
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.
Look closely, dear children, for this
will be the last of our columns for you

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

Nobody fell into the river,
No one got lost in the excitement,
Nobody broke a leg,
Everybody proved he liked to eat

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.

So you don't think this was funny?
Wait 'till next year, when the bitter tears
of farewell are falling fast Csee that big

cheerful little ditties. We bet you can't
do it either.
