WOLVERINE 19 3 2 Class Poem We Juniors in the class Of nineteen-thirty-two , As tortured rats and haughty Sophs Have labored two years through. And ?iow we proudly tell you How happy and glad we are The rank next highest in ole “Hi” To the brilliant Se-ni-ors. We ' ll try to keep our spirit Which has been our loadstar And make distinguished Seniors Of the zealous Juniors we are. We ' ll always try to be loyal , To be faithf ul, and ever true To our emblems , our glowing colors The white and royal blue. And we ' ll do our best to add More honor and lasting fame In our remaining year To ole Salem ' s peerless name. —Frances Garst, Class Poet 40 } ■

WOLVERINE 19 3 2 Class History On September 14, 1930, a memorable day for all of us, some two hundred odd, distracted and forlorn, bipeds of different degrees of greenness burst through the wide flung doors of Salem High, not only ready but eager to demonstrate our ability to run both the school and the universe. Alas! we had reckoned without consideration of that menacing host, the Sophomores. The memory of the “per¬ formances” demanded of us poor little harmless rats lingers with us still. That year was a perpetual surprise party. Those heartless assignments! We made history, we multiplied heartaches, we dissected our self-importance, translated our laughter into tears and declined all that made life worth while. Sadder but wiser we survived the struggle. At last we were Sophomores! The history of that year was unique and varied. We owned the earth. Education? Why seek it? We represented the sum total of all the knowledge of the ages, of all the tribes and nations of the civilized world. And still the wonder grew that our small heads could carry all we knew. We must not forget the varied impressions we made upon the unfortunate rats—vengeance is sweet. All went well until final exams. Then our vaunted knowledge vanished and many found a Waterloo. If only those terrible exams could be relegated to that barbarous past from which they came. In this year, also, our school building burned. Our school board was equal to the occasion, however, and arrangements were promptly made for us to hold classes in the various churches and other available places throughout the town. During the spring and summer our high school was rebuilt and was ready for us in Sep¬ tember. Stop, look and listen! Now we are Juniors! Many of our comrades have fallen by the wayside, some the victims of cupid’s arrow, some slain in Caesars battles, some asphyxiated with indolence, some to whom present comfort outweighs future attainments, and some whose horizon had not broadened as they climbed. But our broken ranks represent many, who are making records in classes and other school activities which reflect credit upon them and old Salem High. Oh! proudly now we hail the class of mighty fame, A class fo dear to every heart which bears its name, Oh! let us pledge in loving words and noble deeds The love that far and wide our eager lives shall speed While here within our Alma Mater ' s sacred walls Full many a cheer shall ring for “ Junior " through her halls. •Cf 39 }
