In this little book we have attempted to put the best of ourselves and our school. Knowing that that best is more largely the direct result of the norm established by the President of our School Board than any other single thing; that his education, sympathy, ideals, and unstinted efforts in tithe and energy toward the solution of the many problems that must be solved has brought the correct solution to those problems; that his foresight and rigid adherence to those ideals is showing the rightness of his position in regard to these problems in the only true test we have, the test of time, we dedicate this High School Annual, the "MOCOSCAN," to the President of our School Board, Mr. E. E. McFerrin, in the hope that it may in a measure prove the success of his efforts and time. It is ever the hope that future copies may have the opportunity of a like dedication.
From time immemorial
it has been the custom of man as he travels along life’s highway, to set up sign posts,
blaze trees, establish roads, leave histories including stories of incidents in the lives
they lived. Following
that good and ancient custom, we, the Senior class of the year of our Lord, nineteen
hundred and twenty-seven, endeavoring to leave along life’s highway and this educational
highway in particular, have caused to come into being this MOCOSCAN, that it may serve as
a guide post, blaze a tree, establish a pathway or be a history of one of the most notable
incidents in our life’s history.
