A HIGH SCHOOL PSALM
fWith an apology to Mr. Longfellowl
Tell me not in mournful numbers,
High School's but an empty dream:
Nor the pupil dumb that blunders,
And lessons are not what they seem
School is real, School is earnest
And the college is its goalg
Dumb thou art, but wise returnest
If thou workest with all thy soul.
Not enjoyment, yet not sorrow,
Is our destined end or wayg
But to learn, that each tomorrow
Finds us wiser than today.
Exams are long, and time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Very nervously are beating:
Knowledge marches to the grave.
In the School's broad field of learning,
All our time to lessons lend,
Ever be for knowledge yearningg
You'll be wiser in the end.
Trust no future, hoWe'r pleasant,
Lessons know ere going to bed:
Work, work in the living present,
Lest dire failure be ahead.
Success of great men all remind us,
We can make our school life sublimeg
And departing leave behind us
Records on the books of time.
Records, that perhaps another,
Going through the school on Main,
A forlorn and stupid brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us then be up and leaving
With a heart for any fateg
Still achieving, still receiving,
Learn to pick a proper mate.

Mary is a sufragette,
She'll run for president, I'll bet,
She'll make congress do her will,
And sign their names with an old goose
To anything she chooses to pass,
Because she is a pretty lass.
Then will come the next election,
She will make her speech perfection,
And try to get the voter's voteg
But now she has the voter's goat,
Because her face is furrowed deep,
And the voter's affection cannot keep.
Upon that burning deck,
Oh! brave we stood and wellg
Miss Walker gave a quiz
And we Went down to-pieces.
A cradle song,
A battle cry,
A quiet grave
Beneath the sky.
In whose arms to find,
Oblivion of Woman kind.
Her last kiss.

sponded promptly with a very interesting as well as helpful talk. Much advice was given
which we hope to make use of in later life. Horace Sisson fthe Senior magicianl gave
a few exhibitions which were really entertaining. But happy times must end, and
after some real old time hand shaking, we parted, the ties of friendship between board,
pupils and teachers being very much strengthened,
Perhaps the next most important happening, during the school year, was the recep-
tion given by the Lincoln Literary Society in honor of the visiting debating team from
Winston-Salem. The Senior class, faculty and a few other members of the High School
received a special invitation.
The Debate over all retired to the Society Hall, where refreshments were served, after-
which all again ascended to the Auditorium for music and singing, and much to the disgust
of Mr. Hayworth a little ftangoingj by the smart set.
The chief event of the evening was the desire on the part of Miss Walker to meet the
Winston professorg and the intense admiration, on the part of the Winston professor, for
Miss Walker's beautiful tresses.
After several attempts, Mr. Hayworth, who was somewhat jealous over the above un-
explained phenomenon, succeeded in dispersing the jolly crowd.
