C By Alma PetersonSENIOR CLASS POEM
After four long years of toil and play. At last our stately little fleet I.ies ready in a billowy bay.
Each a staunch little ship must man We 11 sail to find a newer land To North, to South, to East, tp West,
To part8 known and unknown Wefll sail where we think best.
We're happy, we're loyal, we're.free.
We are as true
As the blue of this earthly sea. Impossible tasks we'll conouer; Hardships we'll laugh to scorn;
We'll conouer tham all without a murmur Though our sails are battered and torn.c
At last ve spy a little harbor All filled ’vith crafts, like dead.
Here -ve Till not linger There1s a better just ahead.
Many a nort ve»ve entered,
Success is just in its da ?n The far off distance invites us 7e must, -ve shall go on,
7fe Till never stop our sailing Till God has called us home.
Take heed of our example
And to our hearts our motto clutch:
"Your are only -hat you Till So Till much."
By Conan BoyleCLASS HISTORY
In the autumn of the year of 1937, our class (’rioted into our r‘reeh"iaP year in Mound High School with the falling of the leaves, • ad in rbouc the came manner, not kno irg our fuouie destination or .'ate.
3 cauee of the fact that many of our class left Ub in the eigh »:rad3, due to the mid-year promotions, ovr number was somewhat s:na3 : out this number has increased in the past four years, so that now our number is thirty-seven.
After many difficulties and nerve wracking moments, we settled down to our idea of work. Hiss Mayhew wa6 our class advisor. We elected Carl Swensson to the class Presidency. Eleanor Ferguson was Vice-President, and Clinton Wallman Secretary and Treasurer.
In the late part of the winter, we entertained ourselves at a class party in the school house.
We struggled through our exams, attaining many high marks, and were greatly elated ™hen we made the grade and became Sophomores.
Mr. Nelson was given the honor of being our class advisor. Douglas Skarp was elected President, and Zella Gertz Vice-President.
We held a party in November, damaging greatly a very good lunch and had an excellent time. Towards the last of May, ’’e had our picnic at Spring Park.Our Junior year, 1030, '-as marked with many successes, in October v e bad a Halloween Pa.rty, where so many ghosts, goblins,

Our class President was Hazel Shipp. Lorraine Johnson wa.s Vice-President, Horace G®bo Secretary, and Doris Schoening Treasurer.
In our Senior year, a serious attitude pervaded the class, as we endeavored to attain high honors during this last veer. However, a carefree undercurrent of jo and happiness ebbed and flowed throng the class consistently, due, no doubt, to chc fact that our last year in school was at hand.
By conscientious study, Curtis Pordlum, who fully deserved the honor, given the place of valedictorian Jean Locherbv salutatorian. Hiss Gryting was our class adviser, carefully andjudiciously piloting us through our many difficulties. Edward Gunderson ras elected President, Lucille Gothmann, Vice-President: Richard Murphy, Secretary; and Eleanor Fer.rv.son, Treasurer.
