18 THE WARRIOR
Senior C lass Prophecy
Round and round went the contents of the boiling ealdron. lnto its depths peered the
wrinkled hags. To each other they grumnled gloatingly, "She shall-she shall-you, Georgia
Miller, president of the class of twenty-live of the Lebanon High School, shall be con-
demned to take the form of a raven and roam the world over seeking former members
of the old class of twenty-I-lve that their later lives may be recorded."
The form of the condemned, shrivclled and shrank into a coal black raven as with a

sk had fallen upon the city there was borne to the ears of the raven the
sound of music. lt found that the sounds came from a brilliantly lighted palatial resi-
dence whose door plate bore the name of Dr. Francis Ginther. Entering. the spirit saw
among the gorgeously groomed figures the faces of Othello Mt-Cloud, Ruth Scott and
Francis Anderson, who was presiding as hostess.
At this instant the beautiful waltz was broken into by the sound of discordant yelling
and beating of drums. VVrithing down the street in a serpentine came a line of people,
at the head of which rode a fat figure with long hair and waving his arms. XYith amazement
the spirit recognized that old Ciceronian oiator of yore. Malcolm McLeod. His good humor
was due to the fact that he was running for governor of the state.
The company had scarcely passed the spirit. when from the opposite direction came
a still larger procession, carrying flaming torches and heralded by drums, and other instru-
ments of noise and torture. The mob was led by XY:-ber Houghton, Republican candidate for
governor of the state. He seemed to have inherited the family desire.
The two processions met head on in the center of a public square. Between them argu-
ment waged hot and fast. Crowds gathered. The argument waxed hotter and hotter, then
suddenly a house nearby burst into flames. In an instant the sound of a siren came wailing
down the street, and a huge, rcd tire engine thundered into view. Bernard Michaels at the
hose, gave a quick glance at the tire then at the howling crowd, saw instantly that water
was needed more on the crowd than on the fire and turned the stream in that direction.
XVater struck the mass, drenching the multitude, sweeping the orators off their feet and,
soaring up into the air it sent its entire stream on the raven who was hovering exeitedly
over the scene, and lo, as H-20 came in contact with its feathers the spirit gave a start
and the honorable president of the class of '25, now president of the KI. YV. XV.si, awoke
with a jerk to find herself in bed and hcr husband bending anxiously over her with an

But she was inclined to think that perhaps her dream was much of a vision of that
which she could not altogether see.
