Upon presentation of this, the June 1939 issue of the Triangle, the Staff wishes to extend its sincere thanks to both faculty and student body for their co-operation toward making this book a success. May it serve its purpose faithfully as a reminder of the pleasant years spent within the walls of Cass and the many warm friendships formed in this period of time.
Mr. Byron J. Chapel
We all do fade as a leaf. Isaiah, 64:6
During the years in which Mr. Chapel was a member of our faculty, his influence was constantly exerted for all that is best in school and beyond. His legacy to us is the inspiring memory of thorough scholarship, liberal culture, and inexhaustible sympathy. His many words of encouragement and kindnesses will never be forgotten by the students who had the privilege of studying under him.
Miss Ada L. Whitney
I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. St. John, 11:25
On April 20, 1939, the Art Department of Cass as well as the entire student body and faculty, unexpectedly lost one of its most valuable and loved instructors. Miss Ada L. Whitney. No eulogy written could attain the expression of admiration that was felt for Miss Whitney. As both teacher and friend, her memory will live forever in the lives of many, and under her past inspirational guidance, our young artists will continue to prepare places for themselves in the dynamic world of art.
Thirty years, thirty long, well-spent years under the broad roof, surrounded by the majestic walls of Cass Tech, have come to a close upon the retirement of Clarence S. Cooke, Assistant Principal and organizer of night school activity. During these thirty years, students and faculty alike have known the guidance and consoling words of Mr. Cooke.
To Mr. Cooke we dedicate this book. May the memories of his many years of Cass be as pleasant to him as is the inspiration derived by those who have worked and thought with him.
