Lyrics" are wonderful and they have
been translated into several lang-
This large building I now see is a
convent. I especially was attracted
by a fair lady walking about the
building, I was told that she had
been disappointed in some love affair
and had become a nun. Her face was
quite familiar to me but they called
her "Sister Maria". After a few
minutes looking at her I remembered
Now I was led into a beautiful
auditorium in New York City! Here
I heard music from the Metropolitan
Symphony Orchestra. I was sur-
prised to find that Leroy Wallin was
Just the day before, I had learned
that Hillias Martin was playing in a
jazz orchestra in New York also!
I wondered if I would find any
more of my old classmates in this
city. Then I picked up a newspaper
and in it noticed that Arthur Smith
and Lonnie Helton had become rich
over night, speculating in call loans.
Now I find myself in a mission
school in India. Here was Maude, di-
recting this school of girls. She
taught the girls how to weave and
sew. I remembered how well she
used to enjoy her work at Sunshine
weaving cottage. Maude told me all
about her work and I learned that she
had become so interested in this work
that she had never married.
I soon found myself in a great in-
stitution of Home Economics and
here was Frances Lane. She was do-
ing great work in this institution. I
remembered that she was interested
in home economics but I expected her
to apply it in a home.
The next thing I remember seeing
was in a great music conservatory in
Cincinnati, Ohio. Here I found Moss
Hackett. She told me about the many
honors she had won as a soprano so-
loist. If she continues she will soon
be one of America's greatest singers.
Moss has many admirers but she
seems to be more interested in her
career than she is in men.
From behind the greasy counter of
a small fish stand I saw a very fa-
miliar man shouting "Fish!" with all
his might-this was Jordan.
As I looked into the professional
circles, in a large office among many
men sat a prosperous lawyer. I re-
membered the sturdy face of Sproull.
The next is a dining' room scene!
A group of well dressed men and
women were seated at the table. I
saw the charming hostess to be Ruth
Hackett. After a short' teaching ca-
reer she had married. She and her
husband are living in Macon, Georgia,
where he is editor of the Macon Tele-
Evelyn Wyatt has pursued her lit-
erary course and at last she has land-
ed a job-dusting busts in Westmin-
ster Abbey. V
On account of domestic failures
Mabel Dobson has become secretary
to Hudgins and through her effici-
ency and capability, he has become
the king of the cod liver oil industry!
Suddenly I find myself in Italy.
Here I visited the Candle Memorial
to Caruso and close by we saw what
we believed to be a second tower of
Pisa but upon investigation I was
told that the Einstein of 1950-none
other than our own "Speedy" Mac-
Knight--had devised a plan and the
American republic had used it as 2.

phasize a college career. But red
spots do not make the picture, nor
do wild, bold stakes of action consti-
tute the college career. Moderately
and wisely have we tried to choose
the colors and actions that count for
lasting manhood and Womanhood.
Strange things happen to us some-
times and mysterious gifts are apt
to fall into our hands just when we
least expect them. It has been given
to me as the chosen one of this great
and good peaple-the class of 1930,
to dream strange dreams and see
strange visions of the years to be.
Now I shall tell you what has been
revealed to me by the powers that be:
As I looked into the land of the
future, I could see moving among the
dim shadows of the people yet to be,
the familiar shapes of those beings
who were once my classmates, now
changed and transformed into citi-
zens of the world outside-even as
they had longed hoped so to be.
I could see our Presidentg even as
today--I could see him in all his dig-
nity, and his words were heeded then
just as we today of the class of 1930
have heeded and attended to them.
His ambition has always led him on-
ward unil he was even the governor
of this, his very own native state. Now
I see the door of his home open be-
fore my vision and there I found
Myrt-whose highest ambition in all
worldly vocaions had been realized-
the maker and keeper of a home.
Ah! thirty or forty years hence I
see a rich man-a banker-riding in
his airplane, counting out his money
and wearing his diamonds. Who is
he? Garland Bagley.
Next I see inside a classroom of
college students. A very handsome
professor is lecturing to the class.
The students all look at him with ad-
miration of the learning he has
acquired. They call him Professor
J. T. Bagwell.
Now I see two happy wives making
sunshine and music within their
walls. I see them exchanging confi-
dences over the fence, as to this or
that domestic difficulty--and also
seeing that even in marriage they
could not be separated-the Smith
Just now I happen to find myself
inside a large cathedral where a
stately priest in his robes of dignity
poured forth words of inspired in-
struction. It was Akins, himself, who
had entered the work of the church
The next was a very touching
sight. I felt almost like crying when
I saw a fair lady in such deep grief.
Surely it must be some lonely widow
mourning her husband. But to my
surprise it was only a fair bride
weeping the loss of her pet poodle!
The bride was no one except Mary-
better known to us as "Skeezix".
As I looked again I could see
among the society circles of that far
off distant time, those who were most
fair to look upon. As I gazed at
those bright and dazzling figures, I
recognized two of them to be the
rival beauties of our own class-Ellen
Bell and Edith Jarrell.
James Smith has become a famous
doctor, owning his own hospital at
which Clyde Reynolds is dietician.
Wallace Moody has become one of
Georgiafs great poets. His "Love

Road and soul weary, I made prep-

These are the things I have found
most interesting to me and I hope
that it may answer for you, as satis-
factorily as it did for me, the all-
important question, "What has be-
come of the class of 1930?"
Mr. President, friends:
'30 about to die salutes you!
Contrary to the custom in such
cases, and loath as are all members
of my conservative profession to
establish precedents only at the be-
hest of my noble client, '30, have I
called you toget'her, before her death
to hear her will and to receive her
I was persuaded to this action by
the unusual circumstances of my
client. I dread to tell you, but be
calm: the doctor is here ready to re-
vive all fainting ones. Here is my
secret, keep it welll
A consultation of doctors was cal-
led together on Monday, April thirty-
first-doctors never known to fail in
their prognastication. They have an-
nounced that on Tuesday, May sixth,
'30 must die.
Had I known what a commotion
you would raise and how badly you
would feel, the president, himself,
could not have dragged this secret
from me. My client wishes me to
state that, owing to a lightness in the
head, caused by a gradual swelling
during the last two years, and a
heaviness in the heart and other
organs, caused by thoughts of part-
ing and over-feasting, respectively,
she may have been mistaken in her
inventory, but such as she thinks she
has she gives to you, praying that
you may not believe that it is only
because she cannot keep her goods
that she is so generous.
We, the class of 1930, being about
to leave this sphere, in full possession
of a sound mind, memory, and under-
standing, do make and publish this,
our last will and testament.
And first we do direct that our
funeral services shall be conducted
by our friends and well-wishers, the
faculty, only enjoining that the fune-
ral be carried on with all the dignity
and pomp our situation in the college
scale has merited.
As to such estate has pleased the
fates and our own strong arms to
give us, we do dispose of the same as
We give and bequeath to our dear
faculty restful nights and peaceful
dreams. We promise them a rest
from '30's petitions. No more will
we be called upon to bend our
