When upon life’s highway We at last must start,
When with dear old classmates We at last must part;
We are not so joyful
As we thought we’d be
For the good, old times of school life.
In our memory’s eye we see.
As upon life’s way we’re starting,
And our hearts feel a throbbing pain; How urgently we desire To Ire back in school again.
But the time for us at last has come In this world to do our part,
So let us each his share begin,
And not shirk from the start.
THE LAST NUMBER.
It is customary for the last number of school magazines and papers to be entirely taken up by affairs relating to seniors or nearly so. However, on account of tbe small size of the senior class and the CUCKOO being new, it was thought best to let it stay in the form of the regular number. Nevertheless. we hope that in years to come the CUCKOO will have r ".urely senior number at commencement time as most other school papers h vc.
The staff wishes to take this opportunity to thank every one in the school, alumni, faculty and town who has helped in any way to make our new school paper a success. Whether you wrote a story for the CL1CKOO, gave an ad, helped with suggestions, or bought a magazine, we assure you we appreciate your i iterest and ask you to do as good next year.
if the CUCKOO has been a success you are the ones deserving the credit. The staff can only arrange and correct material which is furnished by you. In the same way if the CUCKOO is a failure you should be the ones to blame.
After this issue we lay down our tools, so to speak, and pass on to some other work. It remains for the staff next year to take up the job where we left off. If we have made mistakes, which naturally we have, may they profit by them and make the CUCKOO better in years to come.
We pledge you our support even though we are not with you next year and promise not to forget the CUCKOO which first appeared when we were seniors in D. H. S.
