WA? Svnphnmnre Hrnphrng glllllllllllllll FLASHLIGHT S IlIllIIIIIIIIIlg 9 I was wearily bending over my history bookg the hands of the clock pointed to midnight. "Napoleon, Napo-leon, Na--po--le--on." "What do you want of Napoleon?" and the great man himself stood before me. "Put away your books. History is all bosh! The future is what you need. Had I known less history and more about the future, do your think I should have been banished to St. Helena?,' The great general was getting excited, I thought it best to agree with him. He seemed pleased. "Well, then, look into this," he said, drawing his hand from its accus- tomed place across his breast, and thrusting it deep into his pocket. He brought out a large crystal ball. "There!" he exclaimed triumphantly, "look! Yourself and your class two years from now. To most classes this vision of the future is allowed in their senior year, to this class, be- cause of its many talents, its unusual wisdom and superior judgment, the vision comes this year, and still another vision two years from now." I looked. I rubbed my eyes and looked again and lo! Edgar Good- night, our efficient Freshman and Sophomore president, was leading a procession of triumphant High School Seniors. On his back was :1 placard bearing the words "Honest Abef' "But why the sign?" I asked. 4'Oh, he is the one student who always takes the demerits rather than not tell the truth about his being absent." Then followed a crowd of cheering athletes. Stewart Noland, the football captain, had been separated from Edwin, Derrel, Claude, Derbert, and Will, the other champions. Throngs of girls, most of whom I did not have time to recognize, were crowding about our handsome hero. With his usual indifference to admiration, he was attempting to complete a "forward pass" and escape. The crystal turned and when I looked again, I saw Charles Moore, famed in our Sophomore class for his leadership and scholarly habits. Charles and the group about him wore stars on purple crowns. The great general told me this group was made up of those whose names could be on histories scroll of fame, even by the side of his own. Close behind Charles tripping to her own music, made from a tennis racket. came Bertha, at her side came Lois, chattering in Allegro time, her usual accompaniment to Bertha's music. Mary Douthit nd Albert May, is undisturbed by this moving throng as they used to be undisturbed by class recitation in Sophomore days were serenely creating more art to be added to the world's meager collection. "But who is this slender, serious-looking boy, singing mournful dirges, wearing a note book about his neck, and carrying a pencil in one hand and a violin in the other?', "Clayton Holmes," my companion whispered, "this is what writing poems, singing in choral club, playing in an orchestra, and hard studying have done to himf' S l l lx 'N , 'l!I I ki 62 E ' X L. ,in f'?Z ,- ,, S f J if I "' - W -glullnuuis ,L L igguunlunle w e V N xx I S,
