SENIOR CLASS POFM BY GENEVIEVE KOOY Stop, look, and listen; here they come — The Senior class of forty-one. As you meet them, you’re sure to say, “Now there ' s a class that is okay”. Mr. Ruch, our sponsor this year, Has aided us our bark to steer. And, as into the world we start, Unhappily we from him part. Peggy Bahler is first in line. As a cheer leader, she is fine. Secretai’y of class and club, She really is not one to snub. Virgil Barker, the cheerful lad, — When do you see him looking sad? — Always smiles from morn till night. We must agree that he’s all right. Next is a girl who likes to tease. Jean Barry by name, if you please, , Plays the piano very well, And of Roosevelt likes to tell. Anna Boezeman is short and fair. With bright blue eyes and golden hair. She often has a new hair-do, And is a lovely singer, too. Athletic star on DeMotte’s side Is Jack Evans, dark-haired, brown eyed. Though he’s gay as any of you, We’re sure he misses one named Sue. Gerald Knip seems rather shy Until you know him by and by Who is his girl friend? Don’t ask me. There’re quite a few, as you can see. Page 14

7. Genevieve Kooy bequeaths her straight ‘A’ report card to Jeanette Vander Ploeg and Esther Ruisard. Share and share alike. 8. Gertrude Mak wills to Gertrude Dykstra and Frances Walstra the great unknown. In other words — Yehute. Better find out who he is for ydurself. 9. Jennie Nannenga wills all she knows to Inez DeFries and Lucille Hudnall: Sorry, girls, but you’re not getting much. 10. Wayne Oliver leaves his smart remarks and wise cracks to his brother, Maurice Oliver. May class discussions be very interest- ing next year. 11. William Orsburn gives his study periods to Kenneth DeFries. Here’s hoping he won’t make use of them as Bill has — sleeping. 12. Robert Recker leaves to Marvin Bernard all the good arguments that he’s put up in favor of Willkie. Let’s hope your candidate does win the next election, Marvin. 1 3. Shirley Stroup gives her intimate friendship with Lucille to Fred Zeck. Who knows, mayb e it may be more than an inti- mate friendship ' some day? 1 4. Cornelius Swieringa wills his freckles to Charlotte Barker, Mary Lou Cheever, and Elizabeth Woudema. I think there will be enough to go around. 15. Gayce Terpstra gives her title of “Miss’’ to Tillie DeKoker. Some senior boy will gladly give her the title of “Mrs.” some day. 16. Chris Walstra gives his good looking girls in other towns to Malcolm Boezeman and Arthur Schoonveld. Get them, boys (while the gettin’s good). Oh. I forgot about Lois and Delia. 17.

I was assigned this poem to write, And fear my hair is turning white. For by now you prob ' ly know it, That I surely am no poet. You hear a giggle from our class? It must be this sunny-haired lass. Gertrude Mak, — you’ll find is her name, And to be a nurse is her aim. Chubby, jolly, and musical, Jennie Nannenga is them all. If you are looking for a friend, She is on e we can recommend. Big and husky Wayne Oliver Seems to have a fun-loving lure. In both Junior and Senior plays He had many comical says. Bill Orsburn is somewhat chunky, But that’s no sign he isn’t spunky. Of a Freshman girl he is fond. Can it bp that she is a blond? Robert Recker used to be small, But now he has become quite tall. An argumentive lad is he, But in his eye a twinkle see. Now here is Shirley Stroup and she A Latin teacher plans to be. Although lessons cause some to frov They cannot seem to get he r down. Next a very talented boy, — Reporting seems to be his joy. Casey Swieringa is his name; Who knows? Some day he may win fame. Page 15
