Slndrcvn tctois fligh School Reminiscence Alice has just learned her arithmetic and has even had the honor of shaking hands with Humpty Dumpty (she thought he looked strangely like an egg), who announced concerning his mastery over the parts of speech: “They’ve a temper, some of them—particularly the verbs, they’re proudest—adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs—however,—I can manage the whole lot of them.” We have come from Alice In Wonderland, all the way to Andrew Lewis High School. When we were Sophomores algebra was “simple” and we were all “masters of English”: school was, day after day, happiness and fun. Then we became Juniors. Things were more complicated and more serious. We spent some little time studying, and not quite all of our remarks were foolish. We joined a club or two and some of us even achieved the Student Council. Now, at last we are Seniors. But, to our surprise, we are just learning the fundamentals of the English and algebra of which we thought ourselves the masters when we were Sophomores. We have almost finished the year in which Hamlet and Macbeth are evils and we have hardly a moment to waste. Yes, we have lived through the woes of the Annual and are now enjoying its “Reflections.” We may have been the “Most Conceited” or even “Teacher’s Pets.” All these as pictured and explained here are the priceless reminiscences of our school days. Classes The first bell rings at nine, The students then come in. A few stragglers left behind Come pounding in like “iron men.” All is quiet while the roll is called Except for a whisper here and there; Then, like a clarion, another bell rings And the students go up the stair. I go silently into the Library Where all is as quiet as a mouse; It greatly resembles an office Of an efficient banking house. The students all are studying Or so it appears to me; A smile lights the face of a youth As he conquers problem number three. Toward the end of the period With all their studies done The students read the funnies Or gaze dreamily into the sun. The second class breaks up their revelry For there is a class in Economics. Most are Seniors in this class Still laughing at their comics. The teacher raps the desk And calls the class to order. She calmly tells one trouble-maker That he is on the border. The sniggle that follows this announcement Makes the young man’s face turn red. He hides his face right in his book And covers up his head. The next class is the one I love It’s English you can bet And the teacher of this class I never shall forget. She knows more English than Webster did, And she can teach it, too! She makes you work, of course, But this work you’ll never rue. The next bell rings, for luncheon — I’m as hungry as a bear. I go to the cafe and eat A sandwich that is rare. After lunch I walk around To let my luncheon settle After awhile I hear a sound It’s a sound of a gong on metal. My fourth class I do enjoy Because of a girl, you see. Algebra is the subject, And is it hard? Did you ask me? The blue-eyed girl, with the blonde hair Is cute as she can be. I know little algebra, and she Tries her best to make me see. When this delight is ended I feel a little sad, For I see her no more till tomorrow. The thought drives me almost mad! Today we have assembly, A program we’ll enjoy, By the Literary Contestants, Two girls and a boy. And, last but not least, I ' m sure 1 go to biology class Where I learn of all living things — Animals, birds, flower and grass. The work is very interesting Yet still into sleep I roam I am awakened very rudely By a bell which says, “Go home.” By Russell Graham T hirty-Three
