Last year Betty Burns Williams and Morris McDonald looked into the magical crystal sphere in search of the future of this yearls senior class. They saw that the senior play would set at new record in theat- ricals, that the Senior Follies would bring our chapel programs to a glittering peak of frivolityg that the stirring announcement of our team's having carried off honors in debate, extemporaneous speech, and the declamation would calm our effervescence down to a sober pride. Betty Boop, our intensely loyal pep leader, saw that our Eagle football team would come within an ace of winning State Championship, that the senior class would lose a member who would wander into the bonds of matrimonyg and that two of our teachers would be taken out of circulation in like manner. We all knew Miss Brannen was too good to keep, and Mr. Polk for the last few weeks had had the ecstatic look of one about to be married. Any Freshman could have prophesied with due emphasis and determina- tion that the Freshman Class would enthrone their princess as Flash- light Queen, but if one had, loyal Seniors would not have believed it. They foresaw the high honors the Glee Club would win, as usual. Anyone could have foretold without a crystal that Gladys Hillman would win something big, because she looks exactly like a winner, and has a 'gwinning smile." What she did win was the International Business Machines Essay contest. Do you suppose that even they realized, that Abilene High School would organize a Student Council? They foresaw that Abilene would be surprised at the honor of entertaining the delegates to the Texas High School Press Associa- tion Convention, which was held here this year. Even after this yeargs senior class was formally presented with the "Key to Senior Wisdomf, at the Junior-Senior Banquet on April 18, 1936, no one- not even Boop and Morris-could come within a mile of foretelling all the events that were to come to pass. The scintillating climax of the Senior picnic was capped when the Junior-Senior Banquet turned out to be as misty Dreamland where all found inspiring dreams to carry into the future.
