 Central High School Yearbook 

June 1920
The Centralite

                                                              Detroit Central High School
                                                                            June 1920
       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.
