1940 Yearbook


We have not said all there is to say. We have not tried to relate chapter and verse.
Your yearbook will be what you read into it in the long hours to come—when you leaf
through these pages, and linger there . . .
High, red walls . . . cool ivy . . . the patterned shadows of leaves and sun . . . the
close of day . . . and legion memories to lead us to the past. Friends . . . confidences
. . . the members of the faculty whose personalities were impressed upon our own . . .
familiar faces to invite reminiscences. The cycle of seasons . . . their sports . . . their
festivities; a year begun with autumn, and ended with June. We linger. These are
only walls, only faces, only scenes suggesting memorable events gone into the annals of
the past. Yet the walls become dear to us, and faces and scenes take on meaning. And
this is our yearbook.
It has been a year to remember. We have endeavored to present enough of those
days just past to recall pleasant memories.
