INTERIOR OF PLANT
The foundation for our present plant, Paris High School, was laid by the state legislature when the present school district of Paris was created in 1809. The old Methodist Seminary, where Mayo now’ stands, was turned into a public high school with Miss Sophia Watson as the first principal. Then in 1881, the old high school, a three-story brick building, was erected on the same spot. It accommodated both grade and high school students until 1908. when the rapid grow'th of the high school made it necessary to provide a separate building. The present high school building, located on South Main Street, was dedicated February 8. 1909. This was adequate for only a short time, and in 1921 a new wing was built on either end, providing space for the present auditorium, the gymnasium, and ten class rooms. Last summer a further addition was constructed to house the library, and provide an additional dressing room for the gym.
Since the first class graduated in 1875, over 3000 graduates have left Paris High School.

SUPERINTENDENT JOHN R. MOSS
A Message to the Senior Class:
In the future, education in a democracy will emphasize more the development oi ail individual who in his group relationships will advance the we If a re of society as a whole. Distinguished public service will he a worthy goal toward which to strive and will contribute most toward this end. History, political science, economics, and sociology w ill form the foundation for this social understanding. The ability to be economically self supporting will still he as necessary as ever, hut the educated man or woman must realize that he cannot live unto himself. John R. Moss.
