Here’s to the Seniors of nineteen eight!
The class which has labored nor waited for fate,
The class of all classes, by deeds made great,
The days have gone swiftly for one and for all,
Since first we entered our dear College hall And felt ourselves held in her mystical thrall,
Our school work is ended, and forth we must go,
To meet with life’s trials, and this we know,
The Seniors are ready to cope with each foe.
Though our trials be many, and hard, and long,
Still in our hearts we will carry a song,
And spend our lives gladly, in helping right wrong.
Sara E. Dunn.

THE CLASS OF 1908
The class of ’08 had its humble beginning way down in the grades of the Model School. There are a few who were in the class at that time who will graduate this year. Others have dropped out, either for a year or two or have left school permanently.
The regular Normal work was, however, begun in the First Year class, and the class was marked from the first for its enthusiasm and good work. The class adviser that year was Prof. C. F. Beck. The class colors chosen this year were old rose and olive green, and have been kept throughout the entire course.
The Second Year class was organized the next fall with Prof. J. M. Howie as class adviser and Marv A. Hoadley as class president. The class showed its originality and enterprise on its "coming in" day, when it marched on the rostrum of the Old Chapel, each member wearing a paper cap of the class colors, bowing and tipping caps to the Faculty and the State Board of Education, which was present, then replacing their caps, they about-faced toward the students and gave the yell that has been heard so many times since:
Get out of the county,
Get out of the state,
For we are the class Of nineteen-eight.
The school year ended with a victory for the class on Field Day.
The Third Year class, or Sophomore class, as it is now called, organized the next year with Mr. Best as president. The good work and interest of the previous year was carried-on. The class organization was strong, and the class work was stronger. The class was represented in the school debates and in all organizations. This year again closed with a victory for o8 on Field Day.
The Junior Year was one of unprecedented successes. The class showed more than ever the originality which has characterized it thruout its entire career. The president. C. O. Oline. was ably seconded by his strong cabinet and earnest workers. The class work was the best ever done as a class in the Normal, and individual members did splendid work in all lines of school activities. The class broke away from the old custom of serving the Seniors a banquet and gave them a plav instead. On Field Day the ’08s again carried off the banner, thus crowning a successful year with another victory.
As a Senior class, is there any need to enumerate the class’ success and superiority? Earnest in school work, original in class work, and unconquerable in everything, the class of 08 will end its last year at Peru as the best and noblest class ever sent forth from the Normal’s class rooms to train the children of Nebraska’s many schools. J. G. Hesseltine.
