BUT TIME ALWAYS
Four years of highschool life
have passed for the seniors of
1943 These students are enter-
ing the last week of school In
their alma mntef.
As seniors walk through the halls
this last week many of them are
thinking of Incidents that happened
bark In the winter of 1940 All
of them remember the blight sunny
morning in 1939 when they first
enroled In El Reno highschool. At
that time the seniors of 1943
wondered If they ever would find
their way about In the huge build-
ing called the highschool.
Already seniors are thinking of
the teachers they have known in
El Reno highschool. Former stu-
dents and graduates pass through
the minds of the grnduat.es as
they notice, more than ever, the
class pictures in the halls.
In 1941 something happened
which the seniors know has chang-
ed the events of their lives. The
United States was attacked by
Japan. During the next week the
seniors listened to the declarations
of war against the aggressor nat-
ions. There are memories of boys
who left their books for bayonets.
There will always be memories of
their senior year and the all-out
However, time does not move
backward but forward. The seniors
today face the future with some
fear, some bewilderment, and much
courage. The great majority of
senior boys will Join the armed
forces during the summer. Many
of the girls have made applica-
tion at defense plants and airplane
The seniors realize that personal
plans before the war now must
lie subordinated to the great tusk
of winning the struggle and win-
ning the peace that follows.
Many changes are due on the
earth In the next few years, and
we must exert our strength and
our Influence for what we believe
to be the best for mankind. We
do not believe that any generation
has been culled upon to do more
serious thinking than ours.
We. the youth of this nation,
are not confused about what we
want. We want honest work, dec-
ency. and later on marriage, home,
and; n family. Ves, we want inter-
HAVE MUCH TO REMEMBER
Remember the thrill you got the
first day you sat In the renter sec-
tion of the auditorium? That made
you really a senior. How you laugh-
ed and poked fun at the little green
freshmen! They do seem to get
greener every year, don't they?
Remember last Thanksgiving
when you realized you were seeing
the last football game of your high-
Remember when some of the boys
took tests for the army and navy?
This made you realize you were
Remember the day you picked out
the commencement announcements,
and the funny feeling you had when
your homeroom teacher put that
silly looking cap on you?

“Reports to Stockholders”
It is common practice in business to keep the
stockholders informed periodically as to the con-
dition of the company. The reasons for this are
plain: the stockholders are the owners of the
business and they have a right to lie kept posted
on matters of common interest. No one questions
this right or the soundness of the practice.
In various ways the same principle is applied
to public affairs. Here it is the public generally
and the voters particularly who are the "stock-
holders” of government in all its phases and act-
If it is sound and necessary to acquaint the
stockholders of a private business with the state
of its affairs at regular intervals it is vastly more
important that the public be kept informed as to
the conduct and condition of the public business.
This is especially true in matters of important
public trust and, in particular, where public funds
Among the most common but important forms of
official advertising in virtually all states are the
fiscal reports of school boards, city, county and
state treasurers, fiduciary -officers, and many
others. The Public Notice appearing in the news-
papers is the best means of making such in-
formation a matter of wide general record. The
mounting tax burden and the increasing demands
upon government make it more important than
ever that the statutory provisions for keeping the
public informed on public business, especially fi-
nances, be fully observed.
