“THE CLASS WILL” We, the class of 1940, in individual and distant pasts, being- about to pass out of this sphere of education in full possession of a crammed mind, well trained memory, and al- most superhuman understanding-, do make and publish this, our last Will and Testament, hereby revoking- and making void all former wills or promises by us at any time heretofore, or mayhap, carelessly spoken, one to the other, as the thought- less. To Mr. Ewart — A senior class that will not cause him as much anxiety as we have. To Mr. Llewellyn — An English class that knows their preposi- tions. To Miss Slocum — A geometry class that will know their arcs and chords. To Mr. Ely — A wide awake agriculture class. To Mrs. Bernard — A Home Economics class that can boil water without burning it. To Mr. Jarrett — A band that will follow directions. And last but not least of our high school teachers and also to our sponsor. To Miss Hewitt — Nothing as she has everything necessary for a perfect life. 1. Rose Anderson wills her quiet and calm ways to Casey. Casey can sit still now. 2. Selma Recker leaves her act of mastering details to Shir- ley Stroup. May she use it for a good purpose. 3. Clarence Bushman leaves his ambition of getting the girl he wants to Chris Walstra. May Chris have as much luck as Buddha. 4. Bill Rowen wills some of his fatness to Grace Terpstra. Wonder if she will be as proud of it as Bill is. 5. Charles Moolenaar wills his musical ability to Genevieve Kooy. May swing come out in full.

' Now, we’ll find out what Carl Punter has been doing’. He is managing- the “Punter Punsters”. His special attraction is Bill Rowen, the fattest man in the world, who weighs one thousand pounds and keeps Carl almost broke trying to feed him. Well, Bill always wanted an easy job with large meals. “Here is a sports item: Leonard Story broke the world’s record in the mile again last night, in Chicago. It is said that if he doesn’t get some real competition soon, he’s going to be- come a race horse. “Also in the sports flash is a note about Clarence Boeze- man and his wife Helen. It says that he is about to sign a con- tract to play baseball with the Yankees. He must be good to get a contract with them. But he always was good at catching. “Looking down DeMotte way, we find that the Rev. Harry Boer and his wife, Selma, are returning to their church in DeMotte after a trip to Holland. I never thought Harry could find enough courage to ask anyone to marry him, but stranger things have happened; for instance, this article says: Quote: The National Publishing Co. announces that more issues of THE MAN WHO STAYED AWAY have been published than any other in history. The co-authors are none other than Alma Akers and Ruth Dexter. “Unquote.” “Another flash from my reporter friend. Miss Angeline Clark, came through concerning Nurse Johanna Van Kley. Miss Van Kley is on a very important case. She is nurse to a millionaire in New York. Some progress, I would say. Miss Angeline Clark is one of the best reporters in America. “My time is up but you have again heard from each one. Will see you again next year. “73 and goodnight!”

6 . Marie Int V ' elt wills her speediness that was willed to her last year to Jack Evans. May we really have some speed next year. 7. Anna Toppen wills her ambition to wave hair to Anna Boezeman, who knows this may get Herbert sure. 8. Alma Akers and Ruth Dexter will their black hair and eyes to Gertrude Mak. May this make her even more beau- tiful than she is. 9. Helen Zeck leaves her giggles to Jennie Nannenga — hop- ing she will use them more wisely than Helen has in the past. 10. Gerrit Grevenstuk wills his abiltiy to get Helen Zeck to Bill Orsburn. Although, “Bill, that’s just for a short time,” says Gerrit. 11. Ruby Myers wills her bossiness to Jean Barry. May Dora have a rest. 12. Leonard Story leaves his speediness in track to Wayne Oliver. We’re hoping ' we’ll see his name in headlines. 13. Carl Punter wills his Confuesius sayings to Virgil Batker. May Vrigil get as many laughs as Carl gets out of them. 14. Robert Huhn wills his interest in Mary Lou to Kenneth Zeck. Who knows this may work out. What, Charles? 15. Harry Boer wills his studious ways and quietness to Mar- garet Bahler. “I’m sure both will help her a lot”. 16. Angeline Clark bestows her ability to blush to Gerald Knip. Or does Gerald blush NOW? 17. Dora Wright wills her ability to get bookkeeping to Robert Recker. Sorry, Robert, but you’re not getting much in this will. 18. Dorothy Sytsma and Johanna Van Kley will to Charlie White their ability to return their report cards signed. It’s better late than never, Charlie. 19. Mildred Hoffman doesn’t will anything, as high school has taken everything out of her.
