SENIOR CLASS POEM
Commencemenf comes bu+ once a year
And some are sad +ha+ if is here.
In '37 we s'rarI'ed our freshman Ierm
Bu+ if look four years our lessons Io learn.
Our class is Ihe largesl 'Io graduale
Wifh our grand 'rolal of sevenly-eighl
This isn'I our only reason for renown.
We have had many slars, lou+ some in His+ory w
Joe's our president a wi'r'ry boy
And Frances is his pride and ioy
As an aI'hle+e he won his fame
And helped Io win mos+ every game.
Phyllis has such lovely lolaclc hair
She's our vice-presidenl wilh never a care
No maI'I'er whelher if is worlc or play
She always comes up smiling every day.
Bob's our secrelary and 'fakes care of I'he dough
As baskefball caprain, he was never slow.
Fred Hagger+y is a +all, darlc lad
And as an arhlele. he wasn'I' bad.
He was our foolball caplain, and a s'rar
And Iops wilh Ihe girls, boih here and "'rhar."
Helen Henry ran off wi+h The highesl grades
And lell us olhers in Ihe shade.
Our senior play was "Nobody's Home."
And Ihe house was Iilled from floor +o dome.
l've iusl' menlioned a 'Few of our grand class
Bur I wish I could name each lad and lass.
Through Ihese four years we've had lo'rs of fun
Only now our days here ai school are done
We leave 'rhis school Io go many ways
Bur we will always remember our high schocl days.

serious ThoughT in iT. A relaTively small casT, wiTh The usual drawing room seTTing,
enTer+ained The audience Tor a liTTle more Than Two hours wiTh Mion ShorT's NOBODYS
HOME. The Theme oT This play was a mixedfup series oT love aTTairs wiTh Bernice
Gardner aTTracTing much aTTenTion as The cenTer oT These aTTairs. She had, by
womanly Tricks, exTracTed promises oT marriage Trom boTh Charles Dukes and Warren
Clark. As usual, her Tricks back-Tired, and she was much disTurbed as To which she
would marry or wheTher she could geT eiTher oT Them. She seTTled The problem by
accepTing The hand oT Charles l-TaworTh, a looney deTecTive, evenTually winding up
in The arms oT The original husband To be, Charles Dukes. The supporTing roles were
very well Taken by DoroThy Richards, one oT The complicaTions in The love aTTairs,
