CLASS OF ,41
The Senior class of '41 began their upward climb,
When they as freshies entered Eureka High-so fine.
Big wondering eyes glanced all about. With countenance quite green
The speiihound youngsters tumhiecl in a waiting limousine.
There came a sharp bend in the road and fast around they tore,
Their meter then, to their surprise, registered-fusophomoren.
The car was running smoother now, with skillful operation
For everyone within it worked in good cooperation.
The halt-way line was made at last, Without a sign of rust
The class behind them, I suppose, was eating up their dust.
They blew their horn to stop the trains. their heacts hegan to swell,
For they were nearly seniors now-you easily could tell.
Ah, hear ye ali, they've reached their goal, upon the very summit
Theyive dropped their bondage chains at last, great freedom's song, they hum it
The teachers are in a huddie now-the Seniors they discuss,
HVVe'H have to let them graduate, or they'ii start teaching us."
Mr. Major has been a friend indeed
of the Class of 1941 during alt four
years in high school. He has been a
class advisor twice, when we were
sophomores and now, the ati-important
senior year. We wish to express our
thanks for his interest and all the heip
he has given us. Also, thanks for a
difficult American History course!
We already appreciate the training it
has given us. We wish Mr. Major
all the tuck and success in the years
1 To MISS HELEN BONE
We, the Class of 1941, respectfully
dedicate this, our senior Nautilus, to
Miss Helen Bone, who has been our
class advisor and friend during this
last year in high school. Although
Miss Bone has been at ETHS but one
year, she has found a permanent place
in the hearts of all who know her.
We wish her success and happiness
in the future and express our grati-
tude for her interest and help during
