Studied hard each day, Worked hard but had our play. As Sophomores we were found true, Then juniors loyal too. And now as Seniors grave, We leave this dear High School. Praise we'll always sing, Honor try to bring. Creston High to you, And to the Maize and Blue. Tho we leave behind, Friends and classmates dear. Out upon life's way, We'll meet you in the fray. May God bless every student, Who'll bring his trials through. And who will cast the credit Back to this High School. May we part right here, At the threshold near. With a handshake true, That will remain with you. Music by Weyman Scott, Words by Blanche Mosher. l43l

She is stirring something in a huge iron caldron, and muttering to her' self. A group of American tourists approach noisily. At the sight of the old woman one of them exclaims: "Come on, all you brave adventurers, I'll dare you to have your fortunes read!" The party laughs loudly and as they draw nearer to the fire, another member addresses the crone: "Is it true, Madame, that you are able to read our present, past, and future?" The old woman nods her assent and after a series of consultations and jests among the tourists one of them detached herself from the group and after placing a silver dollar in the grimy hand of the gypsy, said: "I was a member of the fourth graduating class of Creston High School. For years I have seen and heard nothing of any of my classmates. If it is in your power to do so, please tell me of their whereabouts." The gypsy peered at the tourist intently, then motioning her and her companf ions to be seated, poured a strange black powder into the caldron. This queer mixture she stirred slowly, looking intently into it, as though she expected to find the solution of her problem in its contents. At length she began in a low, cultured voice: "I see President Luther and Senators Basil Church, Clipper Butler, Warren Oatly, Erwin Carlberg, and Thomas Cook enjoying their afternoon tea in the lounge room of the White House. Ah . . . a butler enters, it is Fred Brandau. "The mists change and a residential district in New York captures my vision. Two women are sweeping the walks in front of their respective homes. They seem to be conversing. I cannot hear the exact words but I believe they are as follows: " 'Oh, Helen, are you and Eddie coming over tonight?' " 'Why, as far as I know, Eda. Say, how did your plum jelly turn out?' " fComment from touristsj: So, Helen and Eda are married! "The scene is changing, and I visualize the bright lights of Broadway. A popu' lar theatre has the following words in headlights: " 'Miss Thelma Evans, celebrated danseusef "At the same theatre I find Ben Chapman, a noted magician, Frank De Young and John Raum, renowned acrobats and, according to the bulletin posted by Ernest Sandy, the manager, a group of Metropolitan Opera stars are booked for the com' ing week. The prima donna is none other than Ada Ellerbrook. "I catch a glimpse of the New York social calendar. A wellfknown society woman, Bernice Kolderman, is entertaining Rev. Chester Lugthart, that flaming evangelist who has succeeded Aimee MacPherson. A group of missionaries have booked passage on the Mauretania. Among these leaders, who are about to brave the dangers of 'Africa, I see Jessie Ypenga, Leo Schwabe, Irene Rudy, and jack Vyn. "Ah, the inside of a broadcasting studio! I hear the announcer, Leo Solomon, talking through the microphone. " 'Ladies and Gentlemen, you have just heard a lecture by Dr. George Calkins, and we continue our program with Bill Isabel and his Band playing a concluding number taken from the "Oh Yeah" musical comedy by that famous song writer, Weyman Scott. At the close of this selection we will enter the Columbia network for the regular Friday evening debate by Peter Middleton and Walter Pigorsh on the chainfstore question. Please stand by.'
