In tlie year of 1937 tliere started upon their high
school career one hundred thirty-five freshmen. We
were the largest freshman class that Jamestown High
School had ever seen. We flocked the halls and filled
to overflowing tlie previously adequate class rooms.
So Jamestown had to expand her rooms to accommo
date us. Little by little we learned to know and love
each other and to become more accustomed to the
rules and regulations. And though as the years passed
and our ninnbers dwindled slowly but constantly, we
are still the largest graduating class in Jamestown
High School’s history! A record that we may indeiMl
be proud of, for on !May 5, 1941, 78 of us will
have completed our high school career and many oi
us, our educational career. We are now equipped to
I)ut our hand to the wheel, as it were, and to find the
place in whlcli \ve fit.
Just as it takes each piece to complete the pattern
of a jig-saw ])uzzle, so does it take each of us tu
make no America’s pjittern of ilemocnicy. Miiv we
each do well our part, however small, for therein
lies tlie honor. Heretofore we have not experienced
the thrill of earning our own way, but before this time
next year rolls around many of us shall have known
the satisfaction of working our way toward the goal
of accomplislnnent. Yes, we will be the farmers, art
ists, workmen and leaders of tlie world tomorrow.
Tliough times may appear dark, still that philosophy
of Browning’s: “Look not thou down, but up", is wise
advice. We know less and less of what the future
holds; therefore there Is a greater need for prepared
ness so we may be ready for anything. As time flies,
we find ourselv>s where a few years past we had not
dreamed of being. But thus is life. Hence, we feel it
obligatory to so prepare ourselves that tin* world may
find us holding honorable positions in the professional,
husine.ss atid religious world of tomorrow. May we go
fortli determined to forever jirove ourselves worthy
of th(> heritage given us by our dear Alma Mater,
Jani(‘stown High School.
I wish to expre.ss my apreciation and thanks to the
members of the newspaper staff who have fulfilled
tlieir duties, and also the spon.sors whose advice kept
our jiaper from being a failure.
