VVe're proud, I say, of all our senior class,
And those whom most we honor mention last.
The boys and girls who all of us extol,
Are those who've made good scholarship their goalg
NVho've packed their store of knowledge firm and deep
CA prize which he who wins may keepj g
And have, besides all this, enriched their school
NVith public honors, which insure its rule.
'Tis good, indeed, that we have worked with such.
Far better if ourselves have gained as much.
Yet, since in this way all cannot be great,
There is another which will compensate.
'Tis to acquire that high nobility
Wliicli makes us hail a classmate's victory
As something that is gain for everyone.
This is the "Central Spirit" we have sung!
Ah! This it is enables us to know
That, when from this dear school of ours we go,
'Tis not alone as Central graduates,
But citizens of these United States.
May all that we shall ever do or be
Reflect the teaching, Central, dear, of thee.
May guidance which thy faithful teachers gave
Still serve to steer our ships on yonder wave.
As sailing from this cove, we dare the sea,
Still our cry "Tenax Propositif'
That, when we come again in later years,
t'New Central" may be proud to shout her cheers,
And our loved principal to say once more,
"Now, sing it as you never sang before."
HATTIE ENSIGN, Class Poetess, 1912

As seniors, now, we stand upon the height,
Viewing the final triumph ot our might!
Proud of each member in this student band!
Proud of our athletes, hailed on every hand!
Those boys whose spikes have plowed the gridi
The three-year captain of our football squadg
Our track men-expert sprinters and the restg
Our baseball boys, all-all have stood the test.
VVe hail our girls who toss the basketball,
And our ofiicial girl who "Cs" them all.
We honor our cadets-their captains three-
Their other oiiicers of less degreeg
Our members of the ritle club we greetg
In every Central sport, seniors compete.
We're proud of tour years' victory in debateg
Our triumph of two years we celebrate.
Qur three-year champion we triply praise,
And to each orator a l'Brecky" raise.
We claim, with all the pride that is our due,
The first Girl-Editor of the 'iReview."
VVe hail our folk of literary fameg
They've added glory to our class's name.
VVe pay our homage in sincerest part
To those who have produced our works of art.
And those who from the stage have brought us fame,
Our dramatists-we greet with loud acclaim.
Then, what about our music'ly inclined?
Why, all our class is that, I think you'll find,
Though our boys' tones sound indistinct and shy,
Especially on "Comin' Through the Rye."
