CLASS OF 1906.
Marie Louise V. Bussey.
One more school year is completed and one
more class is being launched forth on life's
broad sea. For us all this is a day of mingled
pleasure and pain, for, though we rejoice at
the successful completion of our school ca-
reer, we part with deepest grief from our
Alma Mater, our teachers and our fellow stu-
dents. Many of our pleasant school memor-
ies are due to the kind interest which you, the
members of the Board of Education, have
shown toward us.
To our Teachers, especially to our respected
principal, we, the Class of 1906, express the
grateful thanks due for their faithfulness and
assistance. .We trust that our lives may show
not only intellectual training, but also well
formed characters as the result of your la-
bors. Our Honored Principal, your many
kindnesses have endeared you to all our
hearts, and, although in the future our class
may be widely separated, you will always live
in the memory of each of us. Q
Dear Classmates, we have at lastlreached
the end for which we have been so diligently
striving. With our diplomas in sight, we real-
ize that graduation means not only the ac-
complishment of our school work, but it also
means the severing of those ties binding our
class together and those bonds of sympathy
and friendship between us and our teachers.
As' we start out on life's way, let us be mind-
ful of our motto: "Non verba, sed facta."
Let us be men and women who do not waste
time in words, but let us be the doers
which will reflect honor upon our
and school. Gratefully we think of
and bid teachers, each other, and
those sweet happy years, a fond farewell.
PRESIDENT'S ALUMNI ADDRESS.
Friends, in behalf of the class of 1906, I
have the honor of addressing you tonight. It
requires considerable nerve for me to address
you in the company of such able speakers.
But just a few words.
Our class is exceedingly happy to be a part
of the Alumni, and, although we are as yet
green members, still, that will only endure for
a year, and then that adjective will be
employed to qualify the '07 class, and our
emerald hue will have been partially effaced.
There's some consolation in that.
Again let me say that we greatly appreciate
the honor of being admitted to the Alumni
and that we are all embued with the same
determination, to make 'fnaughty six" reflect
credit upon this Association.
But I fear I ani forgetting our motto, "non
verba, sed factaf' so I will cease these words
and try deeds.
