f FITTING impetus to the Qi- ' ready fast-moving advance of Garden City schools was the coming of Mr. Frank R. Wassung, new superintendent of schools. ln spite of the fact that a great deal has been accomplished in the past, his energy and enthusiasm will surely carry the school to greater heights. l-le needs no formal introduce tion to the students of the school. They all know him, and he knows most of them. His impressive rec- ord at Norwich and elsewhere is not what has endeared him to the student bodyg rather it is his friendliness and sincerity. We have printed here a brief message from the new leader to the student body as the most fitt- ing way to express his ideals and hopes. ff 4,,...-v-4" T lS a pleasure for me to be i associated with the boys and girls of Garden City in the growth and development of our high school. There are three things for which l hope our school will become noted: First, that each student enrolled give to his tasks the maximum effort and ability which he possesses. Outstanding ability in any field is frequently a natural gift, but outstanding effort is an acquired gift which comes only from patient application and devotion. Secondly, that we build up in our school that spirit which gladly sacrifices indie vidual accomplishment and acclaim for the welfare of a group. This is really the school spirit which produces successful teams, clubs and classes because it realizes that the game is more important than the points scored by the individual and that the result for the group is more important than the applause for the individual. Lastly, that our school build a reputation for sportsmanship and fair play which will endure. Fair play is really only a matter of good manners. lt implies generous ap- plause for opponents and courteous treatment of officials. Good public manners con- tribute to a reputation for good sportsmanship. May we nail to the "Mast" the pennants of maximum effort, team play and sports- 'nanship FRANK R. WASSUNG, Superintendent I 5 l

C.ROWlNG hand in hand with the prosperous community of Garden City has been C its school system. Prom its earliest founding to its present status, education in this village has been progressing with amazing celerity. But what has gone on before and what is going on now are merely preludes to what is destined to come in the fu- ture. ln the comparatively few years separating the present Garden City school system from its ancestral beginnings as a small elementary school on Cathedral Avenue, tre- mendous strides have been taken. lt seems quite unnecessary to mention the marvel- ous physical evidences of this advance when the beautiful and modern Stewart School, the new Stratford Avenue School, the remodeled Cathedral Avenue School, along with our own Cherry Valley School, themselves speak of the broadening scope of education in the community, The more intangible effects of this change are perhaps the more important. Although very difficult to analyze and measure in cold figures, it can readily be said that the up-tofdate and thorough training of the system has given rise to a superior type of graduate. What has been accomplished along this line will prove to be of far greater consequence than anything gained through physical means. As we of the fourth graduating class pause to review our years in the school, we are profoundly affected by the enormous progress already shown. The story of this development is quite as interest- ing as the story of our country 1 and somewhat similar. Running through both are the eras of early N beginnings, of rapid transitional growth and of final emergence as a power. The history of each one is fraught with obstacles and glorious triumphs. Now that we are completing our years in the school, we feel proud that we have been a part of the school sysf tem in Garden City through its years of phenomenal growth. All growth may not be progress, but we who have been students in the Garden City schools feel that our schools have improved as they have increased in size. The development of the schools here is in an early stage and has a promf ising future. Therefore, it is with an eye on the past and on the future that we have chosen as the theme of the l938 MAST all that is implied by this meaningful wordf- -l3ROGRESSl t4l
