.ill PW lllll i ll ,,.,1-- fi Qi! , -0-Y 5 - -- -'grieve ' L T X - f CLASS POEM 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 CLASS SONG to tune of I'll See 'You In My Dreams u Here's to old Grove High, Sing her praises to the sky . . Teachers kind and Schoolmates so true 'Fortyfsix Class Won't forget yon. Joys that here were ours, Gainful, shining hours, These will light Our pathway bright, So dear old Grove good-bye. -jo Re-ne Gorman 21

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. jean Allen-With remonstrance of spirit I do relinquish jimmy Brice to eagerly awaiting females of the under-classes.
