YVe, the Senior Class of May, 1940, wish, because we feel
that we are about to-breathe our last in this beloved high
school, to leave the remnants of those th'nf3s which we hold
most dear, to those who in their dire need can make the best
use of them. Having passed the severe test as to our sound-
ness of mind, memory, and understanding, we do make, pub-
lish, and declare this our last will and testament, and do here-
by will and bequeath the following items.
To the class of 1941, we leave our dearly loved class ad-
visors, Glen Stancliff, E. H. Arford, May Hartley and Hazel
Vanatta, who will safely guide them thru the difficult chan-
nels to success, as they have so faithfully guided us.
To the class of 1942, we leave our much-sought-after
seats in the gym, only hopfng that they will fill them with
as much dignity as we have done.
To the class of 1943, we do give and bequeath our dig-
nity, our knowledge, and our predominance, hoping that with
these accomplishments they may yet be able to show their
true worth, which has so far lain quite dormant.
Our knowledge of English, being so great, due to the
conscientious effort of Miss Vanatta, we feel that to bestow
it all upon one class would be impossible, so we do hereby
order it to be divided among the succeedfng classes.
To our successful glee clubs, we leave a microphone sys-
tem so that their sweet chirpings may be heard by all the
For the benefit of the student body at large, we leave
the following "Don't."
1. Don't try to kid the Freshies, they really are too
young to understand you.
2. Don't mistake Mr. Olsen for a studentg he really
is over twenty-one.
3. Don't go to Miss Hartley's classes without your les-
son, the inevitable always happens.
4. Don't neck in the hall, it makes Mr, Flom jealous.
5. Don't object to anything the Student Council does
unless you don't agree with them.
6. Don't be flattered, girls, if Mr. Pratt sits with you
in the study hall, he usually has a reason.
