GOOD OLD GOLDEN RULE DAYS
Zoom! What was that? Another air raid. Who would have
thought of such a thing in 1870? Why no one, of course, except
Today we have modern education. No longer are we taught
to the tune of a hickory stick . . . instead our dear teachers
just say so calmly, "one week in detention for you." Our daily
life would be lost in modern '42 without the 5 cent movies,
book reports to worry about, P. D. tests to flunk, admit slips for
the late comers, I. Q. tests to see what we don't know, or count-

THERE WENT POP’S GASOLINE
On May Sixteenth the Juniors and Seniors were ushered
into the Masonic Temple for the social highlight of the year,
the Junior-Senior Reception.
In keeping with the annual custom, the Juniors entertained
their Senior guests with a tasty and appeasing banquet follow-
ing which the couples adjourned to the ballroom for dancing.
For several hours evening gowns and new suits whirled
to the music of Nevin Jones and his orchestra. Swing, jive,
waltzes and even a dash of novelty had its respective place on
In spite of drastic tire and gasoline rationing, some couples
had made plans to walk to the reception; others decided to
take a trolley; while the wise old owls comtemplated carrying
a spare milk can full of gasoline in the trunk, just in case! (for-
give us Punk). Oh my, it would be called off after all! Shucks.
Now our worries are over after weeks of figuring and wondering.
IT’S ALL OYER BUT THE SHOUTING
Curtain call! This began the end of our career as students
of Ferndale High. Senior Class Day—May 20. Here were all of
our hidden talents in acting revealed. Then for a more serious
type of event we met at the Park Avenue U. B. Church—June 7.
This provided us with a helpful sermon by Rev. Weaver. To top
everything off—June 8 was the date for commencement exercises
held at the high school. Caps, gowns, stage fright, sorrow, joy,
memories and the nearness of the future became mixed in the
Melting-Pot. Thus we graduated!
