      WE of the Annual Board in presenting this, the Twelfth Annual of the Denver High School, North Side, to the School, the Faculty and to our schoolmates, wish first to express our heartfelt gratitude to the kind and helpful members of the Faculty, who thru their unflagging enthusiasm and untiring aid have enabled us thus to serve our class.  We tender our thanks also to our fellow classmen and to the entire school who by loyally supporting us in many ways have helped and spurred us on to produce a work representing the best that is in us.  The words at our command are entirely insufficient to voice our appreciation for having been chosen for this work and to put into words the pleasure we have derived from it is equally beyond our power.

      And now the Annual is submitted to you for approval and criticism.  If it fulfils [sic.] the purpose for which it was written; if it will serve to recall to you the many hours of pleasure and benefit you have lived through in this institution; if it will bring to your memory in after years the faces and personalities of teachers and schoolmates who have through long association with you won their way into your hearts; then this book shall have attained its highest aim and we shall feel richly repaid for the labor and painstaking care which we have expended on this only too meagre [sic.] tribute of the class of 1916.—Herbert Linn '16

My Colorado
High rise the lofty peaks
           Above the plains of gold
'Till, tow'ring to the sky,
           Their tips the clouds enfold.

And purple in the distance
           Their outline seems to be.
But myriad are the colors
           That nearer sight can see.

The sky above is wondrous
           In color azure blue,
The clouds suggest a rainbow
           With every blended hue.

Range after range surpassing.
           The wooded slopes ascend
With firs upon their bosoms
           That with the breezes bend.

The Morning sun caresses
           The snow-clad peaks all white.
But evening brings the splendor
           O gold and crimson bright.

And the "Land of Sunshine,"
           Bloom flow'rs whose shades combine
The beauties of anemone
           And purple Columbine.

Worship and admiration,
           To the Master-Painter real,
Our hearts would render truly,
           As we His pictures feel.
                                  —Rachel Trenner '16

Senior Class History
      The second class in the North Side High School to complete an entire four years course in the present building, will on the evening of May thirty-first receive diplomas, the rewards of four years hard tho pleasant work, and will leave our high school never to return as a class.  It is the largest class ever graduated from this building and one of the largest graduating classes in the city.  It numbers two hundred and three pupils, who, we feel assured, have, during their school life, done much to the school's permanent credit and much toward fitting themselves to become capable, intelligent, citizens of our great republic.  As the time draws near when such a large number of our classmates will go their separate ways thru life, we cannot but feel regret that friendships must be more or less broken up at a time when we are just old enough to value them.

      However, to turn to a subject more pleasing, let us look at the silver lining in the cloud.  We can feel justly proud of the record we have made in the past years.  The high social, moral, and intellectual standing of our high school has ever been upheld.  In every line of endeavor; in English, Mathematics, Literature, Science, Athletics and Art, to name the chief heads, notable progress has been made toward the high ideals which our kind, helpful teachers have taken constant pains to have us keep in view.  With the knowledge of so much good work accomplished, of so much added to the good of our city, state and country, we can feel assured in entering other activities, that we take with us the fervent good wishes and hearty God-speed of our faculty, our classmates and under classmen, and in grateful acknowledgment of these assurances of Friendship we bid farewell to North Side High.—Herbert Linn '16
