During the days prior to the establishment of the Silver City Occupational High
School, educational opportunities were limited to elementary and junior high training. There were no means by which residents of the Atlantic side could further their education locally. There were many ambitious youths whose talents were wasted because of the limited educational facilities prevailing here. Those youths,, unfortunate as they were, and with hardly any money, displayed striking evidence of their eagerness for educational advancement.. Going abroad to school, making the best of correspondence courses, taking private e training in trades, and gathering knowledge from all available books, they convinced the Canal Zone school administration of
the necessity for secondary training for local rate students on the Canal Zone.
Progress in the field of education stretched over a number of years. Training
formerly ended at the seventh grade, later extended to the eighth, then further extension introduced the ninth grade, which marked the end in the trend of educational development for a long time. Meanwhile, a serious need for secondary training remained. As more persons became aware of this unsatisfactory situation, coinmunity leaders toiled earnestly for a solution to enable local students to derive the benefit of a secondary education that wa$ not only vocational, but college preparatory. The result of their efforts has been the Silver City Occupational High School, which opened for classes in August 1946.
The High School is an accommodating edifice. Its curricula are adapted not only to local needs, but to the requirements of tbosewho seek admittance to colleges. Among its college. preparatory courses are algebra, science, bookkeeping, chemistry, English, civics, and economic geography. Without doubt the Silver City Occupational High School has solved a great community problem. Its graduate& have been successful under conditions of keen competition everywhere. Many former students are gainfully employed, others have attended colleges in the United States, while some are enrolled in the La Boca Junior College.
The Silver City Occupational High School is destined to play an even greater
role in the development of our community. With the passing of the years the acx complishnients of its students will give increasing evidence that its establishment has
been more than justified.

As a token of profound appreciation of the deep interest he has always demonstrated in the promotion of the educational facilities of our communities, we, the graduates of the Class of '52, take great pleasure in dedicating this yearbook to Dr. Lawrence Johnson, Superintendent of Schools.

of Atainmen e

Deeds of great men all remind us Life is sweet, 'tis dear, 'tis kind; All our dreams can be victorious,
If we make use of our time.
Patience is a gift, 'tis precious
Yes, all things come to those who wait,
Success does not come by wishing,
'Tis a blessing, a worker's state.
Failures must be met, 'tis certain. (Then meet it with a song, a smile, And as the cumbrous days go passing
Meet tomorrow as a carefree child,
Upward we must climb, yes upward,
Until the top most rung we claim,
This will be our one reward:
To leave some deed, some gift, to fame.

We, the students of the Class of '52, are proud of the privilege of being able to bid farewell to our 4 Alma Mater. "' At this time our emotions are mixed with joy and sorrow: joy because the long looked for day which we so earnestly toiled for has arrived, and sorrow because we now have to say farewell to our teachers, classmates, and cherished books we have learned to love. As this day approaches, we pause and reflect on our well-spent years. We remember the happy times we spent together during our entire school career; even though we may recall a few disappointments among the pleasant ones.
In making a closing inventory of our gains, we must confess that we have grown up not only physically, but mentally as well. We have lost all of the childish patterns of behavior through these years of training and study, and we have acquired on the other hand a sense of values and an appreciation of our abilities. In view of these understandings, we can truly say that we are well prepared to meet the vicissitudes of life. We have learned that life is not all fun, but that it is the success and failure, joy and sorrow, gain and loss that make our lives interesting. Such knowledge gained from our Alma Mater will be our bulwark of strength in our attempts to make the proper adjustments to life.
With such preparedness, we now go from this our dear old school with our objectives definitely set for success in whatever field our fortunes lie. In tackling this big task, we shall try to maintain the honor and and prestige of the Silver City Occupational High School, for we certainly are aware of the fact that if we succeed, our achievement will add to the glory of our school, and if we fail, our failure will naturally reflect o n our Alma Mater's good name. At this time we make the solemn pledge that we shall never by thought, words, or action, let down our school, but will work hard, so that our scholastic training gained through the high school in Silver City will not, be in vain. .
Reluctantly, but hopefully, we bid farewell to our Alma Mater.

Gloria Green

As the time approaches when we must regretfully bid farewell to the numerous activities and pleasant memories which we have enjoyed during our high school days, we can easily recall the following events which took place during our years in high school.
During our freshman year (1949) the class of '52 was organized on August 29. At that time we also elected a sponsor and class officers. On September 13 an installation and acquaintance party was held for the purpose of installing officers of the class and introducing new members. During that same month the Biology Club was organized by Mr: A. C. Greaves. In observance of Panama's Independence "A Review of Panamanian Artists" was held on November 1. The guest artists were Miss Barbara Bernard, Messers. G. and N. Brown, and Mr. C. Beecher.
On March 10, 1951, as juniors we held a typing contest between the Junior Commercial Class of Silver City and that of La Boca in which Silver City defeated La Boca. On April 7 another typing contest was held, this time at La Boca, and on this occasion La Boca was victorious. On March 25, in keeping with the spirit of the season, Ida Brown delivered a special Easter message over Radio Atlantico. On Parn-Anmerican Day, April 13, a program was held in the study hall and at its termination Ernest Jamieson and William Reid received second and third prizes respectively as winners of a Pan-American Essay Contest. On May 3, the girls of Miss Lynch's "Advanced Food Class" served a buffet supper to school mates and members of the faculty. On May 4, the Photography Club awarded prizes for a snapshot contest. First-prize was won by Rudolph Lewis. A Mother's Day Tea was prepared by our class on May 15. The function was attended by a large gathering of mothers who enjoyed themselves. To terminate our junior year an Elocution Contest was held on June 1. Winners of the first, second and third prizes were Norma De Suze. William Reid, and Ernest Jamieson respectively.
l)uring our senior year we had miainV distinguished visitors; among them, The Right Reverend Monsignor Dr. (iladstone 0. Wilson, Chancellor of the Vicariate of Jamaica, who gave a talk to the students during "West Indian Stamp Apprecia.tion Week." lie was accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Malcolm, and Mr. V. llenriquez. Another distinguished visitor during the year was l)r. Mamby, former student of our school.
During the observance of United Nations Week, October 21-27, a United Nations Club was organized under the sponsor.5hip of Mr. H. V. Parker. This Club consisted of a group of civic minded students. 'i'he purposes of the club were to stimulate an active interest in democratic principles, to foster universal tolerance, and to institute a program of wholesome educational activities. The officers of the club were Sylvia Carter, president; ant Iona Bennett, secretary.
On Visitor's Day, November 15, the home management girls entertained their mothers at a tea party, which marked the commencement of their home project training.
During the observance of Pan-American Health Day, a program was held in the study hall. Talks were given by some of the students and members of the faculty on topics relating to health. As an added attraction an exhibition in calisthenics was presented by Roy Sobers and others.
We, the students of the class of '52, wish to extend our sincere gratitude to the faculty of the Silver City Occupational High School for all they have done to make us draw nearer to our chosen goal. We now wish to bid them farewell, and a thousand thanks for the many pleasant programs which will ever be remembered in our "book of happy times."

At about 8 o'clock one evening last December, two residents of one of the condemned twelve-family barrack-like houses of Silver City met at one of the usual step reunions"; that is, on the stairs of the building. The older, who was an occupant of the building, began to relate what she had known of the community to the other who had recently moved in.
She said: As you know, things are being imp roved constantly in the world. Well, this improvement has been demonstrated here too. From a former townsite of a few houses the Silver City area has. so grown that it is now divided into three residential areas; namely, Silver City, Silver City Heights, and Camp Coiner. The housing in Silver City Heights was formerly very deplorable. Today many of the houses have been remodeled and modern facilities installed. Camp Coiner is a community of masonry and wooden houses. Another new residential area is now being constructed. Last night a neighbor said that these old barracks will soon be completely demolished and that we residents of Silver City will be transferred to the new con-imunity which is called 'Rainbow City' because of the variegated colors of the houses.
"With the trend for better housing came the clamor for higher educational facilities. The students of today are blessed with the opportunity of receiving a high school education and useful training in one of several courses. Included among these courses are business, auto mechanics, printing, tailoring, home economics, and woodwork.
cc I was schooled here in Silver City, but at that time we students were graduated upon completion of the eighth grade. We did not have an 'educated look' at our graduation, because we were not sufficiently educated to wear caps and'gowns.
"The recreation facilities have been improved immensely. A beautiful swimming pool and luncheonette were recently Constructed. There is also a summer recreation program, a baseball little league for the smaller boys, and several scout troops.
"You can see then that this community is constantly being improved. This improvement helps to make life here happier. The only thing I regret is that we women will not be able to keep up with the latest news (I mean gossip because of the fewer residents that occupy each of the new houses."

S(/Qur, During the days prior to th e establishment of the Silver City Occupational High School, educationa l opportunit i es were lim i ted to e l e m e ntary and jun ior high tra i n ing. There were no means by whi c h residents of the Atlantic side could further thei r education locally. There were many ambitious youths whose talents w ere wasted be cause of the limited educational facilities prevailing here. Those youths., unfortunate as they were, and with hardly any money display ed striking evid ence of their eagerness for educational advancement. Going abroad to schoo l making the best of correspondence courses, taking private training in trades, and gathering knowledge from all available books, they convinced the Canal Zone sc hool administration of the n ecess ity for secondary training for l ocal rate student s on the Canal Zone Progress in the fiel d o f education stretched over a numb e r of years. Traini n g f ormerly ended at the seventh grade, later extcnde d to the eighth, then further extension introduced the ninth grade, whi ch marke-d the end in the trend of e ducational development for a long time. Meanwhile a serious n ee d for secondary training r ema in e d As more p e r sona became aware of this unsatisfactory s itu at ion, community l eade r s toiled earnestly for a solution to enable l ocal students to derive the benefit of a secondary education that was not only vocational, but college preparatory. Th e result of their efforts has been the Silver C i t > Occupational High Schoo l. which opened for classe s in August 1946. The High School is an accommodating edific.. Its cu r ricula are adapted not on l y to local needs, but to the requ irf"ll1ents of those who see k admittance to eol lcgeH. Among it s college pn'paratory courses fire algf"bra, science, bookkeeping, chemistry, English, civics, and economic geography. Withou t doubt the Silver City Occupational High School ha s solved a great community problem. Its graduates ha\'e been successf ul und e r con dition s of keen competition everywhere Many former stud ents are gainfully employed, ot.hers hav e attended colleges in the United States. while so me are enrolled in the La Boca Junior College . The Sil ver City Occupationa l High School i s destined to p l ay an even greate r r o l e in the d eve lopment of our community. With the passing of the years the ac complishments of its students will give increasing evidence that its establishment has' been more than justified William A ReJ

-We, the students of the C la ss of '52, are proud of the privilege of b eing able to bid far ewe ll to our "Alma M ate r. J : At this time our emotio n s are mixed with j oy and sorrow: joy because the long l ooked for d ay which we so earnes tl y toil ed for h as arrived, and sorrow because we now have to say far ewe ll to our teac h e r s class mates, and cherished book s we have learned to lo ve. As this day approaches we pause and r e flect OD-our well-spent years 'Ve remember the happy time s we spent together during our entire sc hool ca r eer; eve n though we may recall a ft w disappointments among the pleasant ones. I n making a c lo sing inventory of our gains we must co nfess that we havr grown up not only physically, but mentall y as well. We hav e lost all of the childi s h patterns of b e havi or through these yea r s of training and study, and we have acquirf'd on the other hand a sense of valuE'R and an appreciation of our abili tie s In view o f these undNstandings, we ca n trul y s ay that we are w e ll prepareu to m ee t the vic is s itude s of l ife. We have learned that life is not all fun, but that it is the fo:ItlCCE'S S and failure joy and s orrow I gain and 10s 8 that make our lives intE'. resting. Snc h knowl e dge gai n ed from our Alma Mater will be our bulwark of in our attempts to make the proper adj u s t ments to life. \Vith su c h prepardeness we now go f rom this our dear old school with our objectives de .fini tely s e t for s ucce ss in whatever field our fortunes li e In tackli n g this big task, w e s h a ll try to maintain the honor and and pres tig e of t h e Sil ver Cit.y Occupational High Schoo ] for we certainl y are aware of the fact that i f we su c cee d our ac h iev emcnt will add to t h e g l o r y o f our school, and if we fa il our f ai lure will naturall y r e flect on our Alma Mater's goo d name. At this time we make t h e s o lemn pl edgE' that we shall n e ver by thought, words, o r actio n let down our school, but will wor k hard, so that our s cho lasti c train ing gained t h rough t h e high school in Silver City will not. be in vain. Reluctantly, but hopefully we bid farewell to our Alma Mater. Gloria Green Oh, my aching back I

At about 8 o'clock one evening l""t December, two re sidents of one of the condemned twelve-family barrack-like houses of Silver Citv met at one of the usual "step r eu nions"; that is, on the stairs of the building. older, who was an occupant of the building, began to relate what s he had known of the community to the other who had rece ntly moved in She said:" As you know, things are being lmproved constantly in the world. Well, this improvement has been dem, onstrated h ere too. From a forme r townsite of a rew houses the Silver City area h"" so grown that it i s now divided into three resid ential are",,; namely Silve r City, Silver City Heights, and Camp Coiner. The housing in Silver City Heights was formerly very deplorable Today many of the houses have been remodeled and modern facilities installed Camp Coiner i s a community of masonry and wooden hou ses Another new residential area i s now being constructed. Last night a neighbor said that these old barracks will soon b e com p l ete l y demolished and that we residents of Silver City will be transferred to the new community whi c h is called 'Rainbow City' because of the variegated colors of the houses. "With the trend for better hou s ing came the clamor lor higher educational facilities . The students 01 today are blessed with the opportunity of receiving a high school education and training in one of severa l courses. Included among these courses are business, auto printing, tailoring, hom e economics, and woodwork. 1 was schooled h ere in Silve r C ity, bu t at that time we students were graduated upon completion of the eighth grade. We did not hav e an 'educated look' at our graduation, because we were not s ufficiently educated to wear caps and gowns, 'The recreation facilities have been improved im mensely. A beautiful swim ming pool a nd luncheonette wer e recently constructed" There is also a summer re c rea .tion program, a baseball li ttle l eague for the smaller boys, and seve ral scout troops. "You can see then that this community is constantly geing improved. This improvement helps to make lile here happi er. The only thing I regret is that we wom en will not be able to keep up with the latest news (I mean gossip), because of the fewer residents that occupy each of the new hou ses Ernest J Jamieson Jr.
