Veni, Vidi, Vici-as Caesar conquered, so does Miss Lela Lockett win the
friendship of all the pupils who have known her. Coming from her classes, day by
day, are future lawyers, doctors, ministers, and even future presidents. Miss
Lockett is pictured above with The Honorable Everett M, Dirksen of Pekin, one
of her former students.
I-ler classes, ,as well as supplying the student's vocabulary with a vast store
of Latin words and phrases, bring in current topics, humorous anecdotes, and
various subiects of interest.
Miss l.ockett's vast store of knowledge, when put to use by her sparklinff
personality, presents a mixture of refinement and culture that is seldom equalled,
and rarely, indeed, is it ever surpassed.

TI-IE CLASS OF 1944 IN REVIEW
The impressive strains of "Pomp
and Circumstancen assume a sol-
emn significance as We, the Class
of I944, march down the aisle to
receive our cherished diplomas.
The call to arms for World War II
has necessitated the drafting of
several of our classmates prior to
graduation, therefore, our ranlcs
have been somewhat depleted.
The absence of these stalwart
youths will be sorely missed, as,
under peaceful conditions, com-
mencement is generally conceded
to be "The Night of a Lifetime."
I-Iowever, the liberties these boys
are striving unrelentlessly to de-
fend malces their absence justifi-
able. Many of us will don the
lchalci or blue upon graduation, and
we will try to bring more glory to
the I944 class.
I find it difficult to express my
undying gratitude to all the stu-
dents and faculty members who
have lent such splendid support
to the Student Council. In my
inauguration speech, I stated that
the gavel would be powerless
without your complete cooperation
--that cooperation has been pres-
ent in all its glory.
To the new Student Council
president, I sincerely wish all the
luclc in the world. I feel certain
you will receive the same whole-
hearted support which was ex-
tended to the 1943-44 council.
Last, but not least, to all those
who will continue to bear the
Chinlc banner next year, l say,
"Keep our standards high through-
out the ages, long live the colors
Student Council President.
