SENIOR EDITION Page 2 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.

Peg 3 SENIOR EDITION v. v -V , 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 we esteem." Jack Rosenberg, Student Council President.
