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

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 . mia! VM --.- haughty knee to supplication, no more will they be pained to refuse. It has been hard to have our fondest wishes thwarted, it must have been hard for them to refuse so fair a pleader. They have done their duty and they have their reward. But oh! how much easier it would have been for them to say "yes", especi- ally to all basketball games and social occasions. Item II We give and bequeath to our best beloved and cherished sister, '31, all the wealth of love and beauty she may want. She seems to be able to get everything else unaided. The basketball and Field Day champion- ships are hers. May our mantle fall completely on her shoulders. We will waste no time in giving to one who seems very able to get. Item III We give to the present freshman class the following advice, the accept- ance of which will lead them to glory: copy '30, learn to work, if not t'o win: development comes sooner through bearing failures than suc- cesses. It isn't fun, but still, look at '30 and be cheerful. Item IV The subjoined list will be recogniz- ed as entailed estates, which we do declare the class of '31 the real and rightful successors: The Soph's seats in chapel to which as freshmen, '31 has not been un- known. May she be as fond of the front row next year as she has been this. Let all the members show their gratitude for this gift by being promptly at the head of the line each morning, ready to fight for that which is theirs, if it be as necessary as it has been for the Sophs this year. Item V Evelyn Wyatt wills and bequeath: to Pansy Hayes and Mildred Wil- liams her room on the east corner oi Catherine Hall, which she has occu- pied for two years, and has heard all the "good nights" of both students and faculty without purposely eaves- dropping. Item Vl Grace Smith wills to Augusta Henry her ability to memorize physics problems the night before ex- amination, providing she does not get caught burning "midnight oil". Item VII With a sad heart and many tears E. C. Jordan hands over the Emery basement keys to Dr. Cook in order to keep said basement locked and the pleasant odors from tantalizing the citizens of the dormitory. E. C. also wills his faithful old pipe to Gordon Green, if he will not use it in the presence of Wildcat' Collier. Item VIII Garland Bagley and Harwell Mal- lory do hereby bequeath unto Earl Walton and Harold Barbour their hit with Mrs. Davis, providing the latter keep "A" rooms. Item IX Ellen Bell with much regret gives to Jean Hayes her privilege of sitting at the feet of Miss Brewster, not to be taught in books, but knowing the said Miss Hayes will find out in time, she hesitates to explain in detail now. Item X Helen Boone wills to Ruth Johnson her hit with Mr. Mullins. To Sophie Bowman she Wills her originality, Page Twenty-four
