Surely our President's future is bright, but we will leave that for the prophetess. Our Vice-President also was deprived of the pure air of the country until three years hence. VVe first see her entering the school with a pack of books. VVhen she was asked what her intentions were and what subjects she wished help in, she quickly replied, "not any only Caesar, Geometry, Physics, Drawing, Music, English History, English, Greek and a few hundred more subjects." She has proved her great ability by mastering Greek in half a year. She sat in one of the back seats, but there was so much noise her teacher moved her to the front seat for her own good. She is favored very much by the college students, especially those at Syracuse, and annoys our musician by wearing a Syracuse fob with 1908 on it. Her duty has been to settle debates, keep peace, and tonight she will read the class will. p Six years ago our Secretary and Treasurer came into the Academic room and has con- quered everything that came in her way except her ambition. In music, she excels and is the only accomplished musician in the class. She has only a few admirers, but she admires many. She favors the students at Colgate, while she holds those at Syracuse in less esteem. She has been extremely happy of late, for the fortune teller disclosed a very happy future for her. She believes the right one will come unexpected some day, so she tries to be smiling all the time. That is why she is smiling so tonight. Our essayist began in the lowest grades and by gradual progress she has accom- plished her end. She is greatly appreciated by her teachers, for she always has her les- sons. She studies all the time when school is in session and reads dime novels during vaca- tion. Some time ago she met a Geneva High School student and they worked together nicely until Teddy left school. Then she asked assistance of another Fred, but he only proved to be a mechanical student and pre- ferred the prophetess. She wishes now to be

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. He contents himself now by helping the little alien who came to the foundry seeking new kinds of fruits, espe-

Another important personage is our proph- etess. She is so quiet that one would scarcely know when he is in her presence except for the magical influence which surrounds her. For a long time no one could solve how she knew what were to be asked in the examin- ations. By careful observations at last it was determined that she could look into the future. If you wish your fortune told consult her at once, but be sure to bring your pocket- bofk. ' Our poet is the sunbeam of the class. She lives away down on the plains that are cov- ered with pines. She trudged the weary country roads to a small school house in order that she might expand her intellectual capac- ity. She was successful, for when she came here begging admittance the doors at once were opened to her. She is so perfectly endowed with imagination and the power of expression that she is able to present ideas in new, harmonious and beautiful form. See- ing her ability, the class chose her for the poet. She has many suitors, but none suits. She is waiting for a trip to Shortsville or Niagara Falls.
