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

THE MENAN Page 'Thirteen number, Edwin lleath bv nalne. .Xml there was much sorrowing in the ranks of the peo- ple. Anil the number of our host was re- duced to seventeen. CHAPTER IV Now this. the fourth year in the history of this great and wonderful t'lass of l9l8 has been one of much hard labor, and but little restillg by the wavside, for the preparations have been making ready for them to take their final departure from the land. At the beginning of the year many new ones came from other schools to join them in their on- ward march, and also some of those who had taken their departure in years before did re- turn again unto the l'riemlly bosom of their old fellow students. And one, by virtue of her wisdom and accomplislnnents was en- ablcd to come up from the ranks of a lower class and finish the journey with this illus- trious class. But in this year also did many of the old ones fall by the wayside so that the whole number of the band was eighteen. Now it came to pass as their pride grew to a great largeness within them and that the Class began to wish for badges befitting their station, and many messages were sent to the big cities and all the towns round- about for samples of their fine jewelry, and at last, after much considering, the Class professed itself to be satisfied with its choice, and rings were purchased with which they rested well content. And it came to pass that in the third month of this year, a great surprise fell up- on the class, for behold, one of the male members took unto his bosom a wife, from another class, and his name was dropped from the roll. Soon their hearts were gladdened by the advent of another of the stronger sex, but, he was chosen by lot to join the ranks of those whose duty it became to save the glor- ious Union from the Tyrant, and he went forth straightway and became a warrior. As a testimonial of their regard the members of the class gave a farewell party for him. And soon now, more members of the class had to take their departure and go to strange lands and the ranks were reduced to the number of thirteen. Now these thirteen had much trouble at the time of deciding upon a fit garment in which to take their farewell from the halls of learning. And manv com- plications arose and caused much strife among the members of the class. And they took sides, the male against the female. 'l'he female element, being the strongest in num- bers, gained the day an'l the hideous garb of caps aml gowns was cast into oblivion. And near the close of the year another great surprise befell them. when one ol' their numbers accepted the token of engagement from the professor. .Xnd likewise another ivaiden was afflicted with the same idea, aml accepted a like token from a youth who dwelt outside the halls of wisdom. 'l'hen it st'raig'litwa,v came to pass that the members of the class began to write down the greatest and most wonderful of thoughts, such as no one ever had thought before since the beginning of the world. upon sheets and sheets of foolscap. that the people who should come unto them to listen unto the words of deep scholarship upon the night of their Commencement should not needs be turned away in disappointment. 'llhen did they sew and sew and sew upon yards and yards of fine linen, that the eyes of the multitude should be gladdened by the glitter of their fine rainment, even while their ears should be enlightened by the wis- dom of their speaking. So it has come to pass that of the eight and ten that entered this la11d in 1914, only thirteen will depart, for verily, verily, I say unto you, that broad is the gate, and wide is the way that leadeth to the High School, and many there be that go in thereatg but straight is the way, and narrow is the gate that leadeth to graduation, and few there be that find it. Four years hath the Glass of 1918 sojourn- ed in the land, and gathered in large portions the fruits from the Tree of Knowledge. But it is written, "ln the day when ye shall have eaten of all these fruits, ye shall surely be driven forth from the land!" Now, I say u11to you, they must depart thence, to go each a separate way, to lands they know not of, to do, they know not what. But, 'tLet us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.' And now, may the blessings that ever at- tend the noble and good aml true, follow and abide with us, each and all, now and for- everinore.-Amen.
