S. A., I now write her last will and testament and in her last moments bestow upon her friends a few gifts from her dying hand. May there be no frantic pleading and scrambling among her friends for this or that coveted glory, for she has tried to be just and impartial and to distribute wisely the talents that have served her so faithfully these four years. These are her decisions, at last definitely arrived at through very deliberate consideration. Such things as Zh? has, she hereby gives into your possession, praying that you will accept them as a sacred trust from one who has gone e ore. This, then, is the document duly drawn up and sworn to: We, the Class of 1947, being about to pass out of this sphere of education, do make and publish this. our last will and testament, hereby makin void all former wills or promises by us at any time heretofore made, or mayhap, carelessly spoken, one to the other, as tfie thoughtless wish of an idle hour. As to such estate as it has pleased the fates and our own strong hands and brains to win for us, we do dispose of the same as follows: Item I - We give and bequeath to our beloved Superintendent, Mr. J. E. Ford, in partial payment for all that he has done for us during our long years at Ford High, our sincere adection and our heartfelt gratitude. We hope he will accept for himself the praise for each success that we may achieve in the arena of the world. Item II - We give and bequeath to the faculty, who have done their duty so nobly in instructing us, a well-earned rest. No longer need they get wrinkled brows worrying over whether this one, or that one, will get a passing grade. Item III - To the Junior Class we leave as souvenirs all our note books, well filled, which testify to our long career of studiousness. VVe leave also our ability to make any action we saw fit to commit, seem perfectly justifiable and proper, in fact the only thing to do. In addition, we leave our seats in the classrooms, including the "doodling" on top and the cuds of gum underneath. Last. but not least, we leave our Senior dignity. May they uphold it forever with due seriousness and ravity. Item IV - The follhwing are not really trifling be uests for they have been valuable assets to usg therefore we hope you will receive them as a reminder of the generosity of heart displayed in our free and full bestowal: lst. To Mrs. Stevenson, our home room teacher, we leave our ever-enduring friendship, together with the echo of our voices which we hope will keep her company for years to come. We warn that these echoes may be faint as we have proven our ability to keep quiet on all occasions. 2nd. To Mr. Elmore. we leave an additional algebra answer book in which is contained the answers arrived at by our own solution. Ma he and his pupils be able to find examples somewhere to fit these answers. 3rd. To Mrs. Keflers, we leave a pair of glasses especially designed to make the characters in shorthand change to the right shape and direction when she looks at them. How we wish she'd had such glasses this year!

MAR. SONG, Testator for Class of 1947. v ... Y ...W ' -' . t .W-z Pl-oplcec Listen, ye youths and maidens, all ye members of the Class of 1947 of Ford High School, listen to the words of wisdom from the lips of your prophet who now speakerh unto you what hath been revealed unto her, even as it hath been decreed by the powers that be. For it has come to pass that the veil of the future hath been rent in twain and the Spirit of Prophec' hath descended from the spheres to envelop my soul with her mystic powers. Aye, I say unto you, youths and maidens, it hath been given unto me as the chosen one of this great and good people, the Class of 1947, to dream strange dreams, and to see strange visions of the glories of the years yet to be. Now it so happened when it was decreed that the future of the Class of 1947 was to be given into the hands of this, your Erophet, to do with even as I listed, that the fair and lovely spirit of Prophecy, lo, with her mystic touch did roll back t e curtain of the dim beyond from before my prophetic vision and did permit me to gaze at will down the long vista of things yet to be. As 1 look into the land of the future, I can discern among the dim shadows of the dpeoples yet to be, the familiar shapes of those fair and radiant beings who were once my classmates, now changed an transformed into citizens of the world outside, even as they had long hoped so to be. I can see our attractive and beloved Class President, Doris Foster, boarding a plane to New York where some fashion designers from Paris are to consult with her about some of the latest creations in styles for women. One of Doris' most recent accomplishments is the designing of costumes to be worn by an old classmate, Betty Anne Stewart, who is now a popular actress in Hollywood. No doubt you remember the interest of your Vice-President, Tommy Cox, in a magazine sale which the class con- ducted in your senior year. As a result of this, Tommy chose to be a representative for a large publishing company and he is now promoting sales with much success. As I look into professional circles, I see sitting in a large office among many men of many minds a prosperous lawyer, Bill Long, the boy who in high school days had not yet learned to say a word that could be untruly interpreted. I find myself gazing on the inside of a large church where a dignified lady is pouring forth words of inspired in- struction. Verily, it is Louise I-Ianvey herself, who has entered into the work of the church. A door of a home swings open before my vision and I find therein a household made happy by a wife who has found her greatest ambition in the highest of all worldly vocation - the keeper of the home. My soul rejoices to see that this is none other than Dorothy Power. Sweet strains of music reach my ear and hold my soul entranced by the beauty and perfection of their harmonies, and as I look to learn from whence they come, behold, I find Betty Gwinn, who has become a noted composer as well as musician. Jean is to appear soon in Grand Opera and Betty Jean delights audiences throughout the country as a gifted pianist. A change comes over me as the Spirit of Prophecy conducts me to a bachelor girls' apartment in New York City where Peggy Hamrick, Bobbie Pulley, and Mary Long sit talking of the past. Peggy an Bobbie have become nurses and they serve on the staff of one of the largest hospitals in the United States. Mary Long owns a chain of beauty salons and spends most of her time travelingp however, when she is in New York she enjoys living with her old class- mates, Peggy and Bobbie. I hear Mary bragging that she has just secured her classmate, Margaret VVilson, to manage one of her largest beauty shops. Behold. I see circling overhead an aeroplane! In it, I am told, is a rich man - a banker - who wears diamonds and counts his money. I-lis name? Jack Rhodes. As I look again I see a lecturer pouring forth in a strong, determined manner her idea of woman's independence of men. This woman, so bold and brave, is Margaret Lyons who used to sit on the front seat in school and seldom uttered a word aloud. The Spirit of Prophecy takes me again over a peculiar route and I see inside a circus tent a lady doing a daring trapeze act. As I look closely, I recognize her to be - yes. Elsie Tumblin. of the Class of 1947. Entering the tent is Edwin Hazel, the famous lion tamer. He is accompanied by his attractive lady helper whom he has just married. As I look into the political circles of our great country, I see two important figipres. Nelle Lindley has just won a seat in the United States Senate from her state, and her cousin, Elizabeth Lindley, as become her private secretary. The Spirit of Prophecy sometimes leads into surgrising places for I find myself gazing at some of the latest millinery creations and I learn that the designer is Marvin Bur ett. Marvin's artistic tendencies have made him so famous that his hats command fabulous prices and astonish the world. I see that Elizabeth DeShields is the only one of the Class of 1947 who was willing to cast her lot as a school teacher. We are not surprised that she is successful in her work and that her pupils are devoted to her. The celebrated traveler who has just returned from his second trip around the world is Arthur Self. He expects to be married soon and he and his bride will take a third trip together. The Spirit of Prophecy leads me next into an art studio where the famous artist is having a public showing of his pictures. His name? Leroy Cox! Leroy boasts that among the distinguished guests are two of his former classmates. Niles Pulley and Harold Turner. Niles, a famous author no'v. has just completed and sent to the publishers another book entitled. "Bugs and Worms"! Harold is a wealthy farmer, the most sought after bachelor for miles around. I marvelled as I beheld these scenes the Spirit of Prophecy caused to pass before my eyes, thinking, "Aye, even so shall it straightway come to pass with each and all of us." I tum my back to the things that are, sure that only good- ness and truth shall follow all the days that are to come to-the fair and talented members of the Class of 1947.
