p 3 Foreword

Friends and Students of Roosevelt High School:

In presenting the first volume of "The Rough Rider," we have tried to depict an accurate cross-section of our daily school life and activities. We hope that you will enjoy recalling these scenes and these faces, and that in the years which lie ahead these pages may bring back pleasant memories.

We wish to express our appreciation to the business people of Roosevelt for the assistance which made this annual possible and to our fellow students for the co-operation given in the preparation of this volume.

The Rough Rider Staff
of 1947-1948

When the time came to dedicate this annual, thoughts centered upon those who have worked diligently and earnestly in the class room and out of it endeavoring to promote our progress, to safeguard our interests, and to insure our future.  It is to them, the faculty of Roosevelt High School, that this, the 1947-48 edition of the ROUGH RIDER is respectfully dedicated.  The Staff

The Staff

To the Roosevelt Community:  In behalf of the School Faculty of 1947-48, I take this occasion to thank each of you for your splendid cooperation.  You have been so patient and the student body has only shown fortitude and purpose.  The handicaps that they have worked under were many, but the resolution with which they have carried on their school work, and entered into their student activities, in spite of circumstances, and even in spite of the many mistakes we all might have made only show fortitude.  Overcoming these hardships gives them strength and confidence in the years to come.  We are thankful to be a part of this community accomplishment.  Call on us any time we may be of help.  Sincerely, Henry Dacus
