The Seniors Parade
Here comes the Seniors in grand array,
Dignified and sober in somber gray,
Don't be misled they're not always this
Some are quite jolly and others real

All people in need, iris they whom

the Bear Cats,
Come on! Quit your loafing, or I'll
give you a spat!
There isn't much in sports or school,
That our own Frank has failed to do.
He always follows the Golden Rule,
We all agree that he's, "True Bluev.
Clyde has the neatest little line,
There is no other of its kind.
So serious and quite is this lad,
We wonder if he could be bad.

You may think it strange, as strange
But they are twins-loolc closely-
Dale Oliver Beaver, but brother to you,
Kicks 'em over and tosses ,em through.
In gentlemen's coiffures he sets the

Georgie Porgy, when young and shy,
Kissed the girls and made them cry,
And now he's president with prestige

The Sophomore crew had several representatives in musical and athletic activities,
and won the inter-class basketball tournament.
We progressed so beautifully our second year on the High Seas that at the end
of the voyage we willed our sailboat to the Freshmen and pooled our money to buy
a handsome steam boat-the junior. Our goodly crew chose the following officers:
Edna Burger, Captain, Dale Beaver, First-mate, Owen Coon, Log Keeper and
Purser, Dorothy Peck. Our gallant athletes won both the basketball tournament
and the track meet. The good ship Senior was still traveling the High Seas, so the
crew of the junior decided to entertain the crew of the Senior with a Prom. At
various times we tied up along the shore and sold bread tickets to the housewives of
Milford, and sponsored a movie, "Smilin' Thru' ". The deck of the ship was trans-
formed into a ballroom, decorated with balloons. Small tables were placed about for
the guests, and a large punch bowl stood at one end of the mess hall. The shipis
orchestra furnished music for the dancing. The evening started with a grand march.
During refreshments many speeches were made and a jolly time was had by both
crews. This very successful Prom at the end of the voyage made us feel that we had
progressed a great deal and we joyously anticipated our fourth voyage.
The ocean liner Senior on which we embarked on our last voyage was indeed a
magnificient leviathan. We chose as Captain a well experienced seaman, George
Benner, our First-mate was a jolly fellow, Frank Bachman, and there were none
quite so capable as our Log Keeper and Purser, Virginia Kelley. There was a new
commandant in charge of the High Seas this year and we were fortunate to persuade
him to be our Admiral, Mr. Plummer.
Although years before, this same crew, while on the Freshman Raft, had taken
part in musical productions, they were never so successful as this last year when they
produced four leads in "jerry of Jericho Roadf' Eleanor Wood, Kathleen Sloan,
Edna Burger and Floyd Pitzer. Mary Spurgin placed second in piano in the Sub-
District Contest and the Whippet Six. Edna Burger placed third in humorous de-
clamation in the Whippet Six-fine accomplishments for our crew. The crew fur-
nished about eleven boys for athletic events who made the Senior basketball team
which won the inter-ship basketball tournament. Our sailors seemed to realize this
was their last voyage and did their best. In the Ship's theater we produced a play
entitled "It Happened in Hollywood".
As the reveille is the last bugle call of the day, so our Reveille is the last accom-
plishment of the crew of the Senior Liner before Commencement. This was a noble
enterprise and required great financial aid which was ably given by other organi-
zations on the High Seas. This is a worthy book describing all aspects of journey-
ing on the High Seas-a joyous life. It was with much sadness of heart that we,
the sailors of the Senior Liner anchored for good at the port, Commencement.

Coon is the daintest lily in class,
Bangs and a ribbon. a cute little lass.
In football and basketball he went
through his paces
To the accompamment of many falls
Hank has a xery sweet little SI111lt
Here and there exery once in a while
Wlien he spies that one sophomore lass
A shy little glance on Bailey does pass
The brother of Frank really ISD t erry
His real n1ckname IS merely Yeary
But this sl1ght mistake was made
The Coach of last year and other times
Blue blue eyes and golden l1E1lI'S
Never IS caught upon the SYHIFS
In case you don t know who this may be
It 1S no other than Marx D
Tall lean and lanky off times quite
You know h1m as Bill but we prefer
He combs h1s hair III American Lit
And all the glrls just think hes
Gay le goes by the nickname of Cheese
cloth and Pickles
Puts his hand in his pocket and pulls
out the nickles
He blows a big blast on his old clarinet
And such sounds issue forth as you ve
never heard yet
Pug I ghteerz
See-saw Marjorie Daw. comes from an
old nursery jingle
Nlarjorie Griest who s very nice is still
She s a dignified sen1or in somber gray
Who plans to graduate some day
Glen plunks on his banjo night and day
Hes the box who makes the str1ngs
And makes good time in more ways
The whole school will miss him when
he s gone
Among us we have a knight errant of
No other than Cotton so we are told
Who sits on the davenport mght after
That Ib until Coach appears 1n s1g1t
ohn and Newman had a duel
Witli their fists one day in school
Both then went in to the showers
To ease their rising cauli flowers
Theres Freda who never asks the rea
But gots right ahead and alxmxs tries
All things the teachers think she
If she nuer studies it nexer shows
