THE LIMIT. 13 great men, 'fNVho Chewed the Knot-Holes Out of Father's Wfooden Leg?', Likewise, we make, constitute and appoint Edgar VVilber, of the junior class of the Phelps High School, to be sole executor of this our last VVill and Testament, hereby revoking all former wills by us made. i ln YX'itness VVhereof, We have hereunto subscribed our names and affixed our seals. the eighteenth day of june, in the year of our Lord one 'thousand nine hundred and six. CLASS OF 1906. THE VALEDICTORY. 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 valuable of deeds teachers the past those sweet happy years, a fond farewell. PRESIDENT'S ALUMNI ADDRESS. -.. l 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.
