And Though Their eTTorTs were more Than SparTan,
The Two of Them Tlunked kindergarTen.
They missed May Day 5 la Fredricka,
When everyone shoufed a loud "Eurekal"
David, dressed as a duck, Turned To quail
Every Time some one pulled aT his Tail.
The Teachers Tound us lovable ToTs
We ruined The blankeTs on The resT Time coTs.
The boys kissed Jean and made her cry,
Even Then, They were Tar Trom shy.
BeTTy Jean caused loTs OT Talk
With mumps and measles and TipToe walk.
Mrs. Maxwell became engaged. iT seems.
Zena was envisioned in WalTer's dreams.
"Thee Hannah" was our Thespian Thriller
An Oscar wenT To Nancy Miller.
The performance hasn'f been equalled since
'Tho Today The memory makes us wince.
Barbara Freeman became The besT scribe by Tar:
MaTh wizards washed Miss Kerlin's car.
Again our acTors proved Their meTTle.
As George SpaeTh shone in "Hansel and G-reTel."
A wave of aTTecTion ThaT was simply Tidal
Engulfed Jack Simons and Peggy Whifall.
"LiTTle Willy" ArrnsTrong gave a brillianT reciTal,
Thereby becoming a maTinee idol.

Betty Whyte was outstanding in Spanish and Math.

"Down in the Valley" was quite a success.
Melvina and Helen sang as never before,
As sweet Jenny Parsons they received "Braves" galore.
We were sort ot surprised at the way Miss Johnson
Pronounced that French: it sure was no chanson.
Her vociferous talents were more on the beam
In giving support to the football team.
When P.M.C. Prep came too close to our end
Ort sat on the toe: said, "Go no further, friend."
Many's the time we cheered for Hood
For running the ball as no one else could.
Lew Smith's speech impressed us so
"What a dry country is Mexico!"
Claude pointed out where Mr. Gordon erred
"Madame Bovary was not cruel," she averred.
Gentleman Ev with a sadistic leer
Slapped Babs Baily on the elbow.
Judy wowed us from the stage
As Mrs. Knowles in the "Romantic Age."
Somehow we survived the College Boards,
Evaded the path of careening Fords,
Without mishap were evaluated
We sort of hate to be graduated.
We weren't the brightest class we knew
And not the dumbest that ever passed through.
We may be ruetul of some things we've done
But we have to admit-it's sure been fun!

and sfealing, lhe Council al rhe beginning of lhis year arrempfed a
