To Classmates and Friends The Pekin Community High School Class of 1941 is NOT an ordinary class. We are extraordinary in two ways: 1) We have had an extraordinarily happy senior year; 2) We face an extraordinarily sad future. As to the first, we have had an unusually victorious year on many fronts. Our debaters have brought honor to us; our musicians have won praise; our dramatists have received acclaim; and our athletes, even as this is written, are going on to gain new laurels. Scholastically, the year has been one of building; and it has not been marred by any unhappy incident. Unfortunately, the future is NOT so rosy. Most of us boys are or soon will be 18 years old. The new 18-21 draft lawr will engulf us. Those of us who seek jobs w'ill be met by the remark: “Sorry, you would be called to the. army too soon.” Those of us who might have planned to go to college have only a faint hope of getting there— may never get there if the war should delay us several years. So it looks like the whirlwind will catch us as we step out of the high school doors. There is one thing, however, that nothing can take from us: That is the happy memory of gay days spent in Pekin Community High School. The school has taken a motion picture of the year. It may fade. But the memory in our minds will NEVER fade. So, as we come to the end of these days, I say to all: “Let’s cherish the merry memories—and somewhere may there be a happy landing for you all.” Dean McNaughton

Because of his ceaseless work, his smiling personality, his excellent advice, and because everything he has done has been for our interests, we dedicate this senior issue of the Pekinois to MR. F. M. PETERSON. In the three years Mr. Peterson has been with us, he has filled a big niche in our Hall of Fame and our hearts. He has made us feel, through his many efforts, that we have a school of which to be proud. The Senior Class of 1941.
