Go all around just where you please, No class like us you'll find, The Alma folks are proud of us. That's something we don't mind. Now watch the time for us, because, Some day, some things we'll do, We'll build some houses, till the soil And maybe patch a shoe. And maybe more than one of us Will reach the White House great, And then won't all of you be glad You saw us graduate? CHORUS! Hurrah, for we're the best of all, As school time goes, - Not very big, but then, who cares' Each one's the best that grows. 0 .hi- v W X V v ,f , ll v x V 7 L 1 x 1 1 4 " rx ' W 1 ' u A, x. ,,u, . 3' ,. .

'Il 4 -V-1 CLASS HIST OR Y In the Yell' of 1938 Mr. Lulu Owen planted five little seeds in the first row in the garden of Alma School. She planted a variety of Elnora Williams, Mike Bee, Vernon Powell, joan Baker, and Della Mae Watson, These seeds grew into Mrs. Williams room. In the third grade joan Baker was choked out by a weed called Toledo, Illinois. Billy Writht took her place. The same group of children went on until Clyde Wayoner joined them in the fourth grade. The other seeds grew into the sixth grade where they lost Vernon Powell, He was choked outuand thrown away by another seed called Effingham, Illinois. iAfterca year -he came'back as af thistle and re- joined the merry troup of half grown plants which now consisted of Elnora Williams, Bill Wright, Vernon Powell, Anna Mae Feathers, johnny Wyatt, Mike Bee, and Clyde Wagoner. But Clyde left at the end of the seventh year. The group of now almost grown plants were ready for the last row in the garden of Alma School. The gardener, Mrs. jackson pulled out the weeds and fertilized them with Geography, Reading, Arith- metic, Spelling, English, and History. Then they were transferred to the 8th row. Six grown up plants remained. They were johnny Wyatt, Bill Wright, Anna Mae Feathers, Mike Bee, Elnora Williams and Vernon Powell. We hope these plants will soon leave the garden of Alma School and go out into the garden of the world. Sue Hester Elnora Williams n u 1 U v . w , , Q 'IJ'-':',"-',' '7 W A 1 .

Mfr 1 v CLASS PROPHECY As I was making a short trip to the moon, I almost had a collision in mid-space with another rocket. We stopped on a small planet to see which was the guilty party. As-I descended from my rocket, I discovered my rival was none other than Vernon Powell, my old school mate. He told me he was also going to the moon to search for his lost partner. Mike Bee, who was believed to have fallen into a crater. He told me that his wife, the former Anna Mae Feather, was among the people going to Mars for their vacation. William Writht is manager of the ancient history department in the Kalamazoo museum in the now almost deserted city of New York. His department shows the long past 1947 Studebaker s. We, also, learned that our old school mate, johnny Wyatt, was the manager of the basket-ball team at the University of Lima South America which has not lost a game for many years. He is plann- ing a game with Afaghaustan that once, backward country, which is now almost as modern as the U. S. A. The game is to be held in the middle of the ocean on' a push button ball diamond. After a long talk with my old schoolmate, I returned to Alma, Illinois: which is now the largest city in the U. S. A. I, then made a fifteen minute trip to the South Pole, I almost ran into a frozen ice cake which contained the 2,000 year old body of Adm. Byrd. A glacier which had passed over a few minutes before had uncovered it. Scientists have searched for it for ages., I sent the ice cake to the museum on my automobile rocket. In a few minutes my name was flashed all over the world by the atomatic radio-graph. Iwas given a reward of Sl0,000,000,000. I used part of my reward money to visit the old Alma School which is in the museum of ancient History at Alma. The book "Penrod" is still well preserved in its Library. I hope the rest of my old classmates will come home to roost pretty soon.

This poems' about the class of '47 Who think the're in their 7th Heaven. When the last little Freshie waves good-by Then Mrs, jackson will heave a sigh, Let's start out with Bill who goes Three days lthen he gets his fill, Like most any other boy will, Next we come to little Mike Incidently, he's not a very little tyke He was Mr. Fezzy wig in a play We kid him about it to this day. Well, johnny's next on the list, Many days he's never missed, We hope he'll continue to be smart So in graduation he'll take part. Next, we come to Powell fthat's Vernon, To be a Freshie next year he's yearnin This year, to complete his learnin. With energy he'll have to he burnin. After Vernon comes Anna Mae She has her lessons most every day Even though she's some tirnes late Good lessons seem to be her fate. Elnora does her lessons well some times And fools the teacher well enough But one of these' day's the teacher'11 catch on, Then just watch Elnora do her stuff. So here's to the Class of '47 who've just stepped out of their 7th Heaven Let's hope.they come to their senses after awhile So they can trudge the long and hard old mile. So we'll be proud of that merry class As the treacherous journey to life they pass. N 14 . '. I -, V- s f . , . B '.'

Patrick Donoho, Jr. The Birds In winter when the ice and snow is on the ground our room feeds the birds. We feed them on our window ledges. At first the birds didn't come to eat because they weren't used to us feeding them. Soon they began to come every day. In spmmer the birds still come to get food, but we don't feed them then because they can get worms out of the ground. They can get bugs, too.

Ralph Sullens A Message of Spring It was snowing, the clouds were gray, When I looked out the window, one winter day. I saw a robin with breast so red, I could hardly believe my eyes, As on his limb, he swung to and fro. He seemed to- say, "I don't mind the snow."

It was fir st laid out by john S. Martin 1854, It was named Rantoul, after an officer of the railroad, but another town had been given that name, and it was chang- ed to Alma. Doctor Hutton built the first store house in 1853, and was the first postmaster. Smith and Hawkins conducted the first black smith shop and john Ross the first grist and saw mill. jefferson Hawkins was the first Mechodist Preacherg john Ross, the first Christian preacher. The Methodist Church was built in 1871, The first school house was burned and the second one was built in 1866 and 1867. It was a two room building, but is not now used. Some of the members of the Christian Church, conceived the thought of a Christian College at Alma. The Rosses and others gave land and money and a good two story school house, or college, was built and a. college opened, but after a few years struggle the property was sold to the district for public school purpose s , Mr, Abbott was one of the first school teachers and was an outstanding educator and leader of the community of that time. Alma has grown from a hamlet to a village, and was incorporated in 1896, It has many business houses and has the trade of this, and Tonti "8 f' broke out and Foster township. On the 28th of December. lm. a ire in a large barn and destroyed the entire business part of Alma. Several stores, warehouses, shops, and restaurants were burned and as all were of frame, the loss was total, but with true American grit, the ashes were hardly cold before the debris was being cleared away and preparation for brick buildings were uncler way, In july of 1908 the large fruit cannery was burned. One of the first pioneers of the community, Wm. Ross, introduced the netted Gem melon, a small, oval, heavily netted, green fleshed fruitg ' 1855. The melons Mr Ross brought the melon seeds back from Texas in were grovum commercially for several years by local farmers and shipp- ed to the Chicago market-in barrels, At one time the shipments reached 10 to 15 carloads a day. ln the same year that Mr. Ross introduced the melon he also started the k ifer ear tree which he imported from Texas. Other trees were graft- C P ed from the original tree, the beginning of many large pear orchards ir' the surrounding community. The original tree is still standing. 't sh' 'n oints of the county.

That dimmed her earthly sight: Her eyes were closed to what we see She never beheld the light: But in her innermost soul there shone A light that few can 'see And so she breathed it forth to us In songs of melody. She might have spent her time while here In frowns and moans and sighs: Bemoaning what she could not see Of earth and trees and trees and skies: She might have, like some woulded dove. just fluttered to the floor And lain in utter helplessness A burden nothing more. But in this life we find there are Two types of men that live: One takes from others all their life, And one will always give: These noble souls though bound themselves Will give us, words of cheer, And oft the call they give to us Is loud, though sweet and clear, just so, Miss Crosby gave to us Songs, full of trust and love, For though her eyes were closed to earth She saw the home above: Is not the lesson that she gave One we should imitate To rise above environment And rising to be great? She gave us songs with depth of thought When this old world was gay The breathed of what was good and pure And not of levity: And so we find the earth was blessed By what to her was loss, The fire but made the gold more pure And took away the gloss. ,wux ' -,V My , ' u ',.

Crosby, So, now. lets give to her today A crown, a king might crave, For does she not live on, and on Though she is in the graveo If what they say of her is true Eight thousand hymns she wrote, And of this number we may see Abundance set to note. Then, if she rules the thoughts of men While resting so serene. Has not she won her laurels We crown her as a queen" Then hale to men and women Who lead our thoughts above Who crucify environment Then rise through faith and love.

Owens Patient, sympathetic and helpful she has always been to us, in our lessons and after school activities alike: sym- pathetic with the varied joys and woes of her pupuls, never failing us when we turned to her for guidance, always setting us a shinning exarnple of steadfastness and devotion to duty. And we, as the representatives of the Alma School, are glad to dedicate this, our annual, as a token of our great' love and appreciation for her twenty-five years of service, rendered in our school, N' r .
