Photograph of Miss Straight

She led us,
Our joys were her joys
Our sorrows her sorrows.

Here is to the best, most loyal and dearest adviser and teacher a class ever had; Miss Straight has been our class adviser for three years. It was she who helped us fight our battles for equality; it was her staunch word of encouragement that made us strive and succeed in reaching our goal.

Miss Straight was a true friend to every member of the class of '28. She could quiet the warmest arguments with a look; her word was law that was sweet to obey.

Many were our trials and great was our struggle to become a reputed high school. As we look back upon the three short years spent under her guidance we are fully aware of the obstacles which we overcame, led on by her belief in our ability.

The Junior Prom was the first great social activity at the school. We give credit for its success to our adviser. It was she who helped us make The Quill a well organized and creditable annual.

It was to Room 9 that all strayed in time of joy or sorrow. It was to the friend and companion of the class of '28 that confessions were made and it was her steady hand that helped to right matters.

The years have flown quickly. Our high school was a short dream. We realized success and gained fame as a well organized class. This was due to Miss Straight.

As we leave dear old Penn Hi we are grieved because we are losing a true friend. We can but look back upon our life in high school and remember her teachings—we know that the hand which guided us so carefully then, will help make our successes in the big world. We bid fond farewell to Miss Straight.
