2 THE LIMIT. PRESIDENT'S CLASS DAY ADDRESS. Friends, we heartily welcome you tonight to our class-day exercises. This day is ours, one which will ever remain deeply engraved. upon the tablets of our memories. It com- memorates the completion- of our High School work, and, while we may be tempted to rejoice overthis, still we must' not fail to recognize the'more.lam,entable fact, that it also brings to ancend our many 'good timesq If there is anyfdoubt in your- minds as to whether we have had .good ' times here, I would respectfully refer you to the professor. He is in a position to corroborate my state- ment, I think. . This, ladies and gentlemen, is an occasion of the diffusion gofghot-'airp -Al-lover this broad land, mighty masters of intelligence are at this very moment engaged in the same pur- suit. And I wish to extend my most sincere sym- pathy to those gathered here. by saying that you are not alone in your misery, but that several million other people are being simi- larly made ill to-night. . But why do they patronize High School class day exercises? Some, because of their just commiseration. They were once High School 'fgradsn and they remember how it was with them. Qthers attend because they never did before and their curiosity has been aroused. They won't come next year. But if you want to hear something entirely new in the way of alleged information, you want to come around the twenty-second. Qui' class has a large assortment. Every variety of knowledge will be represented except the knowledge of knowing how. Remember, Fri- day will be the great Hot Air Festival. l.Jon't fail to be there and hear us hesitatingly utter our well-conned lines, like human phono- graphs. ' THE CLASS HISTORY. Sadie Gertrude Donley. .VVhat could be more interesting at such a time than the history of the Class of 1906? Volumes might be written .on the trials and disappointments andhappiness and joys of each individual in the class. There are many accomplishments which - arerworthy to be lmentioned but ,will have to be omitted here. lHowever, we havehere only a short sketch jof theirbschool life., A I ' It 'is with .pleasure .I first catch glimpse of our President. Vffhen he, first opened his leyes, he foundhimselfin our glorious metrop- olis of, New York. He. tried hard to appre- ciate his privileges .of city life, but he knew the great desirefor. nature and her marvelous 'works would never cease until he might see her as she is. At last, though waiting many years, he bade farewell to the tumult and noise of the city and glided along up the Hudson. As he journeyed along. he heard, by chance, that there was a wonderful place in Central New York which had a foundry of knowledge. XYhen he arrived at Phelps, for that was the place, he passed the building and his desires were satisfied. At once he entered the school and has made rapid strides toward the place which he now occupies. At the same time he began the study of French-not so much by books as by nature itself. This, of course. would cease for a time, owing to his own neg- ligence or that of his instructor, but these few lessons were made up by private discussion and a little walk. These instructions lasted until a short time ago. Qne night he went to a dance rejoicing in the fact he could surpass anyone in French, but whether he contracted a cold or some terrible disease no one could quite determine, for he can speak only a few words now at a time.
