SILVER AND BLUE I6-P VB! - -..- Lyrics" are wonderful and they have been translated into several lang- uages. 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 Alda Jones. 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 director. 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- graph. 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.

SILVER AND BLUE -MV war -- 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. PROPI-IECY 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 Sisters. 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 Page Twenty-one

SILVER AND BLUE we -- memorial to its renowned Helen Boone, who sang her lovely little songs, making them up as she went along. Road and soul weary, I made prep- aration to return to my native state, but I decided to stop by "Gay Paree" for a short while. Here at Monte Carlo I am most delightfully enter- tained by the owner, Horace Sims, a very charming and discriminating host. Cn my way over I am encounter- ed by a prince who is an expert at bridge, and upon closer relationships I find him to be Ormond Ward who has reaped vast profits from his dia- mond mines. 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?" WILL 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 gifts. 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 ,--ilNIl 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 follows: Item l 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 Page Twenty-three
