Ours was ’ ' The Good Ship Knov ledge,” and our port:’’Scholastic Achievement.” Have we reached it? You m.ay be the judge. I turn back the pages of our high school career and visions of th e past come before our eyes. There is the High School Glee Club; a liberal amount of its number are fresh¬ men, Here v e see a game of basket-ball in progress; its players are freslimen. In music, dramatics, art, and public speaking, our class took an active part. The next year we continued the voyage as soph¬ omores with twentyi elght girls and eleven boys. It was this year that Faye Cooke and Lillian Badgett made tho second basket-ball team, and Evylyn Simmons, Faye, and Dolla Gordon gained renovm in the field of dram.atics, I fear the light of knowledge burned less bright during the second lap of our voyage. We became an established part of high school life. It was no longer now and our class functioned as a single unit. In the year of ’37 v e again assembled for the roll-call and our number was still smaller: twenty- three girls and six boys. Later Roy Kirkman en¬ rolled, proving to be an asset on the basket-ball team. Our junior year was filled with numerous act¬ ivities. For the Junior-Senior Party we gave a barn-warming, and we took an active part in this teimi’ s gr aduation. Last fall the fourth lap of our voyage was begun with yet a smaller number. This year has not been all cleru sailing. We have had differences among ourselves and activities have filled the year to the brim. Athletics, drematics, in the form of the Senior play, md now commencement and graduation. The end of our draws near. Port is in sight. We turn from visions of the past to visions of the future. Who.t will be our mode of travel in the journey of life? ’’Quien sabo?” as the Spanish say, ’’who knov s?” BBTTY HATCHER, HISTORIAN CLASS PROPHECY ’’Wake up, Faye, wake up, " Alice cried as she to v ake her from deep slumber. Oh-o-um-mm, " Faye yawned as she awoke. When she saw Alice, she at once thought of the dream she had just had. " OhI Alice I " she exclaimed, " I have just had the most wonderful dream. " I dreamed I visited Franklin High School and found our from Mr. Mcleod and the teachers what alliTimy class mates were doing. I was surprised and happy, too, to find out the ac¬ complishments each had made. Charles Burroughs v as a veterinary surgonn and had migrated to the far west. He has originated a nev; species of cow-boy, who changes the cut of his cost¬ ume every nev; moon r.nd throws the lasso ambidextor- ously. Edith Miller had been given a. position as a closk and suit model v ith Madame Bazook of par is, whore her histrionic powers were given full sway. Dorothy Francis, whoso ambition vaas always to be an aviatrix, he d won the povjder-puff for women in Los Angeles. Evelyn, and her us and, Pat, went to Africa, whers they became possessors of the largest diamond in the world, which they finally exchanged for a log cabin in the mountains. Betty Hatcher now holds a position as literary cr¬ itic and poet Isturcate for the Federal goverrmient. Warren Simmons had taken a great interest in the training of bo rs and girls and is dedicating his life to reforming them v;ith the help of an electric spanking ms.chino . Roy Kirkman aft-.-r graduating from college, had circumnavigated the globe three times v ith a Ford motor car and t birch-brrk canoe. On his second trip he met Lillian Badgctt, vi ho hi.d become a college dean. After a short happy courtship thoj wore mar¬ ried and took the third trip .together. Delia Gordon was a successful nurse in one of the leading hospitals in New York City. Swain Cooke had become one of the most faraous avi¬ ators of today. Ho was rapidly achieving the name of a second Howard Heghes. Lovie Cundiff and her husband had migrated to Flo¬ rida, bought a thousand acres df un-irrigated Ir.nd • Proph‘ ' ;cy Conti nued. f.nd v orc rnisln 9 ; onionr on r gi rntic occ.lo. i ' r.rion Hi-rbour in.?, th-, propriotcr of n thcntor. iiobcccr. ricl.lillrn’, ■ ' vhoso hobbv vnnr hod bccorao tlio non.ngor of ono of Chic .go’r. lending gnn fex torlec. lunry G: rdncr, wnbc-th ' O proud ovmor of i. bocnut ’--pri ' - lorfor ecro n-ptn-re In Hollyvxod.
