Howard Valedictory—Oration—“Nothing Last”...................Annie Moorhead Music—Normal Farewell Glee...........................Professor Martin ofc NORMAL FAREWELL GLEE We conic, kind friends, yet once again, to greet you ere we part, To breathe the final farewell word to every faith fill heart; And tho school days now are over, kind remembrances remain, While the fondest recollections rise before us once again. Many scenes of former friendships, many treasured words of truth, Stand engraved on memory’s tablet of the happy days of youth; Many kindly words here spoken, golden links in memory's chain, Of the happy weeks now past, are the treasures that remain. CHORUS And now we say farewell to friends and scenes most dear, The joyous days in Normal I falls for aye our lives shall cheer. And while we golden harvests reap, or seeds of knowledge scatter. Our prayer today shall he alway—“God bless our Alma Mater!” Mntty-sr »r«

MEMORIES In the gray twilight I’m sitting tonight Thinking of home and the dear days of yore; The thoughts of my childhood and youth bring delight As they come thronging from memory’s store. Like a series of pictures they seem to unfold. And I sec in a sheltered and quiet retreat My once happy home the same as of old Where round the bright hearthstone the loved ones would meet. The stalwart oak reaches protecting green arms Afar o’er the wide stretch of'soft grassy lawn In its branches the wild-bird, secure from alarms, Sings blithely its song at the earliest dawn. I sec the worn path down the long sloping hill Where my loitering footsteps so often have trod. The spring clear and cool and the bright flashing rill On whose banks in the breeze graceful ferns wave and nod. The old-fashioned church at the brow of the hill. It comes to my vision so plainly tonight; And the burying-ground where the dead lie so still With quiet hands folded away from sight. I sec the old Normal, the pride of my youth; Once again ’ncath its roof with my classmates I meet And we study from books words of wisdom and truth. Then to faithful instructors the lessons repeat. I see the quaint town with its long dusty street. The bridge where I lingered in merriest play; In the distance the river whose turbid waves beat Against sands that arc shifting by night and day. But while 1 am musing the swift darkness falls And covers with sombre and misty grey veil The beautiful pictures on memory’s walls. While stars one by one glimmer forth cold and pale. —Lottie McKenzie Hahorsen A t

PERU When with this old stub pen I'm through No more to hit the pace that kills, I'm coming clown to Old Peru To get- a home among the hills. Where lilacs scent the breath of Spring, Where squirrels frisk about the lawn. And 1 can hear the wild birds sing In chorus free at peep of dawn Where screech-owl hoots and turtle dove coos. And man pursues his peaceful way; Where no one tills his skin with booze And travels hellward night and day. Where there is peace and full delight. And little noise and politics: Where one can always rest at night And wake to bless the morning. BIX. GEORGE ELLIOTT HOWARD
