UPHOLDING AMERICAN RIGHTS
Uncle Sam with his short beard and patriotic suit of red, white and blue
symbolizes the democracy of the United States.
In a like manner Prin. Ralph E. Nichol with his characteristic glasses and
red hair represents a democracy within Yankton High School.
Twelve years ago Mr. Nichol began duties as principal. Since then
hundreds of students have crossed the threshold, bringing their problems,
dreams, sorrows and joys to a principal, friend and adviser.
Like Jefferson he believes in the common man, representative government,
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Thus, as the nation honors its leader by firing the twenty-one gun salute,
the students of Yankton High School honor the leader of the high school
faculty by Hfteen cheers.
In addition, the students applaud the superintendents and the teachers,
who help youth carry on the American tradition of UPHOLDING AMERI-

We, the Arickara Staff of 1941, attempt to recall not a story of
the silent, old liberty bell and the change of Betsy Ross' circle of I3
to a formation on Old Glory in six rows of eight, but to show within
these pages that this school and the nation are similar-"DEMOC-
RACIES IN ACTION."
The foundation of public school democracy started when 56
men representing lj colonies signed the United States Declaration of
Independence. That democratic spirit continued to burn in the schools
"of the people, by the people, and for the people."
Examples of Yankton High School's contributions to a greater
democracy are the Woksape's freedom of the press, the Debate Squad's
freedom of speech, the Student Council's right of assembly and the
Sports teams' school defense.
Thus, as this school and the nation meet on the cross-roads of
America, we record that patriotic moment in this ARICKARA.

CHESTER A. BEAVER BARRE ' WE '
Two superintendents, Supt. Chester Beaver and acting Supt. Barrett Lowe, sitting
behind the same desk are as different as the tawny hued mustache on one and the
raven hair on the other-yet the same goal dominates each character.
As patriots, one armed himself with a gun, the other with a pen. In explanation
M r. Beaver was recently Captain of the Yankton division of the National Guard. And
Mr, Lowe has written two books on the history of South Dakota.
As "commanders" both helped to stabilize a more democratic school system. Their
aims center around giving every Yankton boy and girl the right of self-government
and freedom in cultivation of his talents.
As citizens, in school or on the street, everyone has become familiar with both
superintendents' simple, neighborly friendliness.
Whether it's Mr. Beaver or Mr. Lowe sitting behind the desk, that they have
pledged their skill and energy to the students can not be denied.
