My ninth patrolled our outfield well
And ran among our backs:
His forte-and fortissimo
Was on a tenor sax.
My tenth was captain of the nine.
All those who sauntered from
Their meals in deep disgrace recall
His double-jointed thumb.
My next from dangling attitudes
On all occasions loosed
A flood of tales of Greenwich town
XYith one big object-boost.
My twelfth, a noble citizen,
Served with us well, and yet
Let saints forgive the things he did
With Lyman's clarinet.
My thirteenth managed football gam
VVith competence and care,
He always wore a helmet smart
Of ultra shiny hair.
My fourteenth delved in everything
Each time fate offered chances
And with great gusto vocalized
Our drama, sports, and dances.
My fifteenth loitered all the way
And then where all could see
Printed these lines and jingling rhymes
And called them poetry.
My sixteenth worked and played and tried
To readjust his mouth
Lest sounds and syllables be formed
That savored of the South.
It is not very hard to guess
From all those simple clues
The complement they represent
For they do not confuse.
My whole, therefore, rveiewed, goes by
And passes through the gate
The Pomfret graduating class

Mr. and Mrs. Olmstead, Friends, Masters and Boys of Pomfret School:
For years we have looked forward to this day of graduation as a day of great honors and
joys. Honors we have: but our joys are tinged with a bit of sadness, sadness because we are
about to leave lr'omfret. No matter how many years we may have lived here, we have felt the
spirit of the school about us, lifting us up. We shall always remember our days here as the happi-
est we have ever spent.
Our appreciation of what you. Mr. and Mrs. Qlmsted, have done lor us goes too deep to be
expressed by words. We can only try to give you our thanks. Our most cherished memories of
Pomfret will be of you, and we shall never forget the aid you have given us.
XYe wish to thank our friends and helpers, the masters, for the invaluable assistance they
have rendered us. XYhen we needed help, you were ready to give it to us and start us straight
To you who are following us we give deep thanks for the splendid loyalty and spirit you have
shown. lt is to you that we owe the success ol our linal year here.
XYe are leaving our places open for those who follow us. Always remember that Pomfret is
in your hands. Be sure you are right, then go ahead.
