Detroit Central High School
As we are leaving Central High School
and those who for four years have guided us and urged us on toward the final
goal of victory, we wish to pay a special tribute to Mr. Wilbur G.
Burroughs, able grade principal of the House of Argonauts and the
friend and advisor of everybody.
All through our high school career Mr.
Burroughs has been an inspiration to us, for he represents the highest and
finest type of manhood, and the nobility and strength of his character has
found expression in the very bottom of our hearts.
For the kindly assistance he rendered
in guiding us through vicissitudes, for the wonderful encouragement, council and
attention he gave us, we, the Class of June, 1920, as a token of our
esteemed gratitude, dedicate to him this CENTRALITE to show that in the
heart of this class there is a keen appreciation of his unselfish interest.
By Ralph Hilliar
The time has come to say good-bye,
Good-bye to dear old Central High,
And though the future may be long,
We gather now to sing this song.
We come to say our last farewell,
And sadder than mere words can tell,
We now go out into the world,
With Central's banner, bright, unfurled.
In years to come of joy and strife
We'll follow it through all of life,
And our ideals will always be
Our gift from Central High.
The time has come when we must say
Good-bye to friends and classmates gay,
And though from Central's ties we part,
They're written deep on every heart.
