Page Twelve THE MENAN CLASS HISTORY OW the history of the class of 1918 of the High School of Kimberly, County of Twin Falls, State of Idaho, pro- eeedeth in this wise: In the beginning, in the year of our Iiord, 1914, in the ninth month and on the tenth day of the month there entered into this land of learning eighteen seekers of knowledge. Some came up from the eighth grade where they had been for many months busily en- gaged in storing their minds with the honey of wisdom. Some were green and fresh from a far country, some from farms, where they had been tillers of the soil and some came from other halls of instruction. The leaders for this year were ,lay Ii. Downing, Miss llale, and Mrs. Atkinson. And it came to pass, as they did enter this land, that they were received with the wild welcomings and rejoieings by those who it was decreed should henceforth lead them up the slippery by-ways of knowledge. .Xnd as they dwelt long in the land, they fell in with the customs of the inhabitants thereof, and their strangeness wore away and each became as one among the rest. And it came to pass soon after they enter- ed this land, that they were one and all seiz- ed with a strange infliction which did cause them much fierceness and strangeness of manner, after pai-taking of a pickle. Lo! and behold, it wa's the mumps! So with many anxious fears and dire forbodings did the instructors have a swelling in the jaws and, lo, none were killed, whereat there was a great rejoicing throughout the land. And it came to pass, after some months that their eyes were turned toward gradu- ation, but many, with one consent began to make excuse. The first said, UI must needs toil at home. Therefore I cannot graduate. " Another said, "I ani dull and cannot learn. I pray thee have me excused. " And another said, 'LI am going to be married and there- fore I cannot graduatef' Until at the end of the first year the number was fifteen. CHAPTER II Now it came to pass that a new band of youths did come up from adjoining territory. The class of 1918 in their new dignity of their promotion started a new and very pop- ular sport, of initiating the Freshmen into their new society by means of baptism. Now it so happened that this land to which they have eome found a new ruler known as Jay Ii. ldowning. a professor of much wis- dom and his assistant leaders were Miss Blynn, Miss Irvin and Miss Bellville. And as the class did journey thru the land behold there were two maidens and two youths that were fair to look upon who had strayed far from their companies with which they had set forth and were mueh sorrowful. and as the members of the class did look upo11 them in their loneliness their hearts were stirred in pity for them, and did open wide unto them that they should be gathered in. And the whole number at the end of the second year was nineteen who had dwelt with us during the entire year. CHAPTER III Now it so happened that at the beginning of the third year this class came into a new land. There were also many infants added to these halls of learning who were called Junior Ones and Junior Twos a11d "1918" took on the name of Senior II. And it came to pass that the class of 1918 decreased in its number the sum of two who went to the far east to other lands of learn- ing. And it came to pass that the class in 1918 did provide for the rest of our great multi- tude, in these lands of learning, a party which was called a 'tLast Chance Party." And lo, it was given in Leap Year and each of the fair sex had to bring with her a mem- ber of the genus male. There was much song and laughter, and everyone did sound the praises of the entertaining ability of this 4-lass. But a great ery went up from the hearts of the greedy class of '17 that we should pro- vide for them a great feast and many toasts, this event to be held at the home of Marie Turner. And behold we did prepare for them a feast where there was much merry- making. And when the guests did at last depart from the activities they were exceed- ing glad that things were as they had been proclaimed, and did give much thanks to the class of 1918 for the pleasure that they had provided for their enjoyment. And lo, in this year of our journey a great calamity did befall our class. The Angel of Death did swoop down and seize one of our
