"Orders" are unexpected in war time, and with little time to contemplate the "Advance," Mr. A. G. (Frenchy) Haussler took over the "command" in perfect form and after a few weeks in a difficult position, seems very much "at ease." "Big Jim" Lewis became head coach and a new assistant coach is to be selected in the fall. EYES FRONT! A military aspect settled over PCHS in the early doys of the war. Principal F. M. Peterson organized First-Aid classes. Red Cross knitting filled the Social Room, the selling of War (then Defense) Stamps flourished, and model planes took shape in the shops. Air raid drills began, and then it was spring, Easter — and Lieut. Peterson was ordered to report for dutyl We felt distinguished and important in our war effort, and tried to say a brave goodbye. Here: L'eut and Mrs. Peterson inspect signs of spring and the yellow forsythia, just before Lieut. Peterson left for duty with the armed forces, assisting in the removal of offensive yellow objects from the air.

Page 3 SENIOR EDITION Carolyn Jurgens Robert Heckman NO, MR. HITLER-YOU JUST DON'T TALK OUR LANGUAGE! From across the seas, a voice screams, "The purpose of education is to create ihe political soldier ... in the case of female education, the main stress should be last of all on development of the intellect!" No, Mr. Hitler! America, of course, rejects such a creed as barbarous and perverted. We believe in the democratic definition of education—education as a process of stimulating free minds and preparing vig- orous intellects for living effectively and cooperatively. Carolyn's original oration, "America's Green Pastures," defines our pride and belief in our country. We Learn Outside the Classroom, Too American education now extends far beyond school rooms. Forums of open, lusty, controversial debate on urgent political. social, and economic issues are reaching audiences everywhere. Carolyn and Bob, as debaters, have reached many audiences, sharing, discussing democratic life, vividly presenting facts, truth, reality concerning this complex world—a world we must understand if our way of life is to endure. We are proud of the contribution we are malting at PCHS in these crucial times toward the successful functioning of democracy.
