Beyond the bend of the years to come
We long to look ahead,
To learn of deeds as yet undone,
Of words as yet unsaid.
Cur commencemenbtime heralds a New Day,
A World reioicing in peace
And strange new powers that, rightly used,
May the pleasures of Life increase.
We're happy on reaching this milestone-
Our honors are well-earned,
And many aside from textbooks are
The lessons we have learned.
We've been taught the value of kindliness,
Of patience and of truth,
The ioy that lies in good sportsmanship,
Distaste for things uncouth.
We offer a grateful vote of thanks
To the teachers who've guided our way,
Their friendly counsel and ready help
We'll remember for many a day.
Yes, we'd like to know our future roles,
But there isn't a way to tell,
So whether our parts be great or small
We'll try to do them well.
And this we hope for, above all else-
Wherever lie our labors,
We humbly ask God's gracious help,
Please let us be Good Neighbors.
-Io Rene Gorman

I'll See 'You In My Dreams
Here's to old Grove High,
Sing her praises to the sky . .
Teachers kind and
Schoolmates so true
Won't forget yon.
Joys that here were ours,
Gainful, shining hours,
These will light
Our pathway bright,
So dear old Grove good-bye.

Forever And Forever ff Amen
No doubt, we as seniors, having struggled through American
history and literature have heard of Nathan Hale and suppos'
edly memorized his great quotation: I regret that I have but
one life to lose for my country. Being not vain, we do not
claim to be heroes: but, nevertheless, we are conceited by the
fact that we are Americans and so even though our gifts may
be scant in quantity and quality, we do freely give them with
open hands and a free heart. It is therefore our wish as seniors
to place our gifts and achievements in this year-book in order
that our greatest merits and accomplishments will be enshrined
in the hearts of those we so reluctantly leave. Thus, we as the
graduating class of Grove, 1946, being unbalanced in intellect,
and of ill-reputed character, do ordain, constitute, and construct
this our last will and testament.
