After twelve long years, we, the M. T. H. S. Class of 1934, have now arrived
at the parting of ways. These years of work and play, of struggle, and of
growth, we have spent together as comrades. Now the time has come for us
to leave the institution, our school, which fostered that comradeship. As, with
one accord, we look back over these years which we have spent with one another,
we perceive that above all else they have been years of progress-progress from
childhood to young manhood and womanhood, progress from ignorance to the
threshold of knowledge. Graduation, the celebration of our completion of these
twelve years of school, commemorates for us our advancement as does the Century
of Progress that of the world in the last hundred years. Insomuch as Commence-
ment is the recognition of a considerable achievement it is a happy occasion, but
insomuch as it marks the end of our class comradeship, the resignation of our place
in school, and the giving up of those numerous indehnable qualities that make
school life dear to us, it is a sad occasion. And so it is that we leave our places
here not without a feeling of regretg nor do we intend to give them up without
first having made known our wishes for the disposal of those possessions which,
however cherished, the spirit progress dictates that we leave behind- .... "when
I became a man I put away childish things." Therefore, we hereby proclaim the
following will to go into effect immediately after its public announcement, and
we hereby name as chief executor thereof, one, Vernon L. Plumer, Principal.
May all men know by these Presents: That we, the Senior Class of Nine-
teen Hundred and Thirty-four of the Milford Township High School, County of
Iroquois, State of Illinois, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, and
not acting under duress, menace, or fraud, or undue influence of any nature what-
soever, do make and publish, ordain and declare this, our last will and testament
in the manner following to-wit:
I bequeath my French accent and beautiful eyes to Mary Adams to be used
with discretion and not to be overdone-signed, Eula Le Sage.
I bequeath my droll humor in class to the only one in the Junior Class who
needs and deserve it, Harry Fanning-signed, Clyde Bachman.
I bequeath my entire fortune to Ellis Gilette-my face is my fortune-signed,

Archibald Amos her house has to pass,
Before he can get to his first period
Where every day he never fails,
In Manicuring his finger nails
jiggs has his "Sally" without any fans,
Uses plenty of gas and needs new
The teachers all laugh till they nearly
When little Gordon cracks a jolce.
"Who's the new boy?" cried they an
When Roy Came back to Us last Fall.
And he was a senior, but alas,
To bad for him where his lor was cast
Eleanor really can write charming verse
But her mind is always in reverse.
Pm sure she's never been stirred,
By any lessons she has heard.
