PROPHECY Here we are, the Class of 1949. Behold us . This class is a beautiful thing. There has never been one exactly like it before. It is almost a finished pro- duct, as far as the teachers are concerned. We get our diplomas soon. Notice how young we are and new to the world. How bright and colorful are our hopes. We are together here like the pieces in the quilt. A few months from now we will set out and marks of time will change us. The beauty of our class as a whole will not remain so. Some of the class, made of more sturdy material, will make a place in the world and weather all hardships in life; some will live flowery lives until the very end; but others will live gray and drab lives, and a few will give way entirely to the tears of life. A few will patch up their lives and start anew. Some of the class may sit at home, sheltered from the world, inactive, taking care of their precious selves. But if they do, they will be musty old things, hiding their talents. I have been associating with my classmates for some time, and I have picked up little pieces of information about them. I have heard little scraps of conver- sation; and gathered little bits of personality until I think I really know what the future is for the class. I have a piece for each member. I have a piece of flowered material which Audrey gave me from a dress she once had. I ' m sure her life will be a flowery one when she becomes a 4-H home agent. I have collected two pieces of white. These two came from Elizabeth and Ina Ruth. This white is symbolic of the nurses ' uniforms which they will wear when they take up nursing as a career. Jackbrougth me this piece of bright green. The green symbolizes the green crops which Jack will some day be growing. And here ' s some bright yellow which Ruth gave me. It is symbolical of her life, bright and sunshiny, full of hope and promise as the rising sun in her career as an airline hostess. Of course, William gave me this checked scrap. He is going to live a check- ered life - a Jack-of-all-trades, but he will be useful because he has been a handy man about school. William is bound to be a great help to someone. This piece of cloth, with the pattern of houses in it, is the one which Edna Mae brought me. The houses are symbolic of the one which Edna Mae will live in when she is married. I have even collected a sample with cherries in it. This piece John gave me. The cherries symbolize the ones which he will someday be selling in his grocery store. 13

Among the things we have contributed to our school this year are nine of the basketball players, who helped win the Sportsmanship trophies. We had five Beta Club members, and two of the most successful 4-H Club members, Audrey Beaman and Jean Dudley. The Editor-in-chief, Ruth Smith; Adver- tising Staff, Audrey Beaman, and Elizabeth Smith; and the Business Manager, David John Overman, of our school paper, and the SANDSPUR, are from our class. Several of our girls have been active members of the Future Home- makers of America Club. We have taken pleasure in bringing forth our school annual for the first time. Thus, through laughter, through tears, through joy, through work, through play, we have reached the top of the ladder, and as we, the Senior Class of 1949, understand our endeavors, we have achieved the pinnacle of success ' . 12

Prophecy My ' , here ' s a queer piece which has tubes of lipstick in it. This piece Inez brought me. The lipstick is symbolic of that which she will be selling when she owns her beauty shop. Here is a piece of dark blue which Clarence gave me. It is symbolic of the blue in his work clothes which he will be wearing as a farmer. This queer piece patterned with several things represents the articles which will be sold in S. H. Kress when Ida Ellen is manager. And this piece with the building in it was given me by David John. This build- ing represents the one in which David will be teaching agriculture. I have a piece of pin- stripe which Dorothy brought to me. I am sure Dorothy will always be as neat as a pin in her career as a secretary. This black, Oh yes, it is a sample Jean brought me. Someday Jean will be wearing a black robe as she stands as a Christian Youth worker, directing a youth choir. 14
