June, nineteen hundred and sixteen. These words may have no significance to the mass
of humanity, but to a group of Poly students, constituting the highest class in the school,
they are most precious and full of meaning. 'l'hcy mark the beginning of a new era in the
lives of those who leave this school in june, never to meet again as an active class at Poly.
For years we have been aiming at one goal-graduation. Some of us have all but missed
the marlc. Others have followed a true, unerring course. All, however, are bound by a com-
mon feeling-that we have fulfilled a cherished desire, and that we have completed a definite
step in life. May that give us encouragement to face the world with strength in our hearts!
XYhat has been the share of the Class ol' 1916 in promoting the interests of Poly? In
athletics, the Seniors have taken a prominent part. Football, baseball, basketball, track,
swimming, tennis, boxing, and wrestling have received heart-felt support-support which has
accomplished results. XVith few exceptions, every member of the class has taken a definite
interest in some form of athletics. Equally successful have been our mental activities. De-
bating has taken a forward step during the past year. The team defeated representatives

from one of the largest schools in the city. Our speakers maintained a high standard in
the annual contests. 'Essay and 'poetry contests fell to our lot, and it is a matter of class
pride that the "Poly Prep? has been so efficient and attractive.
XVC have done our best for Poly's sake, and will never forget our Alma Mater. But our
efforts shall reap richer fruits than mere temporary enthusiasm for our school. Poly life is
a thing of the past. The world is before us. The Senior year has prepared us for future
responsibilities. C1355 elgctions, Committee appointments, and all other problems have been
settled only after careful deliberation. Our class advisers, with many years of experience
behind them, have taught us to guide ourselves. Mr. Golden and Mr. Tuttle, with their
kindly sympathy and helpful advice, can never be forgotten.
The Senior Class has advanced the cause of its school, and has prepared itself for the
future. But there is another element needed to insure harmony and unity in a class. Good
fellowship is essential to a body of Seniors. The members of 1916 are not merely class-
mates-they are comrades. Officers and members have enjoyed most' agreeable relations
with each other. Mutual interest and friendliness have been in evidence throughout the
year. VVith such a spirit, it is indeed difficult for this group to part.
Our career at Poly is over. But others will fill our places. NVe entrust to them the
cares and responsibilities of the highest class in school. May they guard and preserve the
high ideals which the Class of 1916 has evefkhpt before its vision.
