We must go after success, since it will not voluntarily come to us. We cannot live again these pleasant days, in reality, but we have gathered together, our life here in Milltown High School, organized, and bound it within a book, so that in the future, as we turn the pages of our High School days, we may live them over again in memory. This Annual, we have not adorned with highfflown language or any' other extrinsic attraction, but the value of our Subject, Dear Old M. H. S., alone recommends it. "We push time from us and we wish him back." 2 fm HE MILLWHEELJP NICHOLAS EDWARDS DEDICATION We, the Senior Class of 1927, in due respect and honor, and to the memory of the deceased member of our class, dedif cate this volume of the MillfWheel.

We love your rooms and hallways- At least in retrospectg We cannot quite say we felt that way When answers weren't correct. Dear old deserving teachers, Each of a kind warm heart Forever thus, you will be to us, Though time and distance part. We love your idiosyncracies Although we must admit To stints unlearned, your glances burned, Your comments fairly bit. Dear old superintendent, Cast in a noble mold, We'll recollect you with respect Till all our years are told. We love your ways and methods- But, Oh, your darkling calm When tempests blew, ah, then we knew Though guiltless, many a qualm! Dear old adoring schoolmates, Friends of our yesterdays, We can truly add, we'rc a wee bit sad, O'er this parting of the ways. We love your awed devotion- But, Oh, your childishness.

Conquests as Freshmen Ql923fl924j Having assimilated all the learning of the Common School. in September. 1923, we en' tered the Milltown High School. with two legions. The first consisted of three boys and the second of fourteen girls. Soon after entering. we moved from "The Old School Building" into the "New Brick." Here we organized and soon applied ourselves to the task of transferring facts to our brains. Our boys aided in Basketball. while our girls waged war in dish pans and over the stove. in order to serve lunch to the pupils. Then April came and having been awarded credits for our valor, we were ordered home for the summer. II. Conquests as Sophomores 1192449251 In the following September. we again entered High School. Our First Legion now num' bered two boys. and our second. twelve girls. Fern jones had departed for another school. Hazel Harpe and Edward Duke had given up the fight, Ked Harvey still aided in Basketball. Some of us were represented in the Glee Club and still others aided in the Senior Play. III. Conquests as juniors Ql92ifl926j Incited by past victories. we again entered High School in September. Cur first Legion numbered two boys and the second. twelve girls. i Cecil Senn did not remain with us long. Ked Harvey again assisted in Basketball, and Nicholas Edwards was elected "Yell" Leader, Then. on March the seventeenth. a great sorrow put an end to the joys of our class. for Nicholas Edwards was called to the Great Beyond. In April, after having devastated reams of paper in examinations. we bade adieu to the Seniors and went home for the summer. IV. Conquest as Seniors 092619271 The next September. we made our last invasion of High School. Our First Legion had two boys. for Norman Mtirr had joined us. The Second ten girls. for Alice Patrick had not ref turned. Kedric and Norman both starred in Basketball, Ella Atz, Ferris Goldman and Pauline Lincoln were also Basketball Champions. Many councils were held to discuss different projects. The MillfWheel Staff was selected. and our work moved along smoothly enough. We gave. with great success, "BrownfEyed Betty" and our Annual Class play. which were given to help meet our expenses. All things being completed. diplomas were awarded the class. now numbering two boys and nine girls. Pauline Lincoln having departed for the High School of Monticello. Ill. We now embark for the voyage of life. hoping to meet. successfully whatever it may have to offer.

We'll rove the future's thoroughfares And take the future's balmy airs, And as we tread the golden maze, We'll meet old friends of High School days And see what fortune they have found, If this one's famed and that, renowned. A swell exclusive Beauty Shop Is labeled "Lula Bird," Prop. And stepping in to take her hand We find her dressed upfOh, so grand! She, with great pleaiire, shows us round, And we find that she, too, is famed and renowned.

How our cheers and yells were drowned. Oh well, you're famed and I'm renowned. We take in Mellon's matinee, Viola is starring there today, Then dancing Ferry! holds the stage Gay debonair, despite her age. The public's idol, long since crowned- Tut! You're not famed nor me renowned. A fat policeman ambles by, And angry! Yes as sure as I am I And what is that he has in tow? Ella Atz! And so angry-Oh. She ran him down as I'l1 be bound, When you are famed and I'm renowned. We step within the courtfhouse door To hear the lawyers rant and roar. Is that Ked's voice we hear afar, Defend a criminal at the bar, And all the evidence confound? Ked's quite as famed as we're renowned. The schoolfbell rings, the lines troop in, We see the teacher dour and thin, Ruth Bye! Bless my hat That dear old Ruth should come to that! Some things without a doubt astound When you are famed and I am renowned. A cinder settles in my eye, I hail Doc Murphey careening by, She flourishes her handkerchee, Demands a hundred dollar fee And gets threeffourths of it, at least, When you are famed and I am fleeced. "We know in part and prophecy in pafrt 20 HE MILLWHEEL fbi. Jan We drop in for a cup of tea With Mrs. VanDyke nee Margia B. She gossips Erma's a diplomat, And tells who lives upstairs in the flat.

Come dear old class-mate, you and I Will steal away from By-andfBy, From days to come when life is sweet And all the world is at our feet, From distant days toward which we're bound, When you are famed and I'm renowned. We'll leave the Future's thoroughfares, We'll quit the Future's balmy airs, To be the You and I again, Whose years were only few, and then We, with our class to graduate, When you're not famed and I'm not great. -JESSIE TYLER "Oh, my prophetic soul!" 21 QLTHE MILLWHEELJQ GENERAL AVERAGE OF THE CLASS OF 1927 Bluff-Excellent.
