THE ORIOLE 27 Class Prophecy Of Fate I begged, near tears, That She might fitting see To look along the coming years, Then say what we should be. Kind friends, by me asked to insist That She more helpful be, Prevailed at last: She cleared the mist And let us further see. One moment — then the mist closed in, Then all as ’twas before; But in that glimpse what there had been To sec and hear — and more. Louise will be a movie star; For Ethel teaching school; Vcrnelle great things will make or mar With science as her tool. In French will Dawson grammars write Where “icis” are the rage, To be a cook is Baldwin’s plight; And Frye’s, an editor sage. A missionary, Smith is for; For Moorefield, farmer free, And Nannie, of some man o’ war Is “mate” indeed to be. Among famed law firms one can see The “Duncan-Kasey’s” name; And Amburn’s plays indeed ’twill be That near Shakespearian fame. And Jim an orator so great, So charming and so grand ; He might persuade one risk one’s fate At Dentist Chandler’s hand.

26 THE ORIOLE ed but we were eager to see what lay beyond and hated the little time which elapsed before the gates were unlocked. At last the gates swung open; our boats shot forward as thoroughbreds going over the last hurdle. We were not able to keep this pace long however, for soon we ran into solids form- ed as prisms, cylinders, tetrahedrons, and other unpronounc- able things. What imagination we had left from Caesar Whirl- pool was expended in imagining the other sides to these figures, but at last we threaded our way through. Beyond us there was a rough expanse of water. “Now, what kind of storm was this?” was the query. “Irregular French Verbs,” was the reply. “No hope! No hope!” the waves seemed to moan in our ears. It did seem hopeless at first, but our endeavors were rewarded with victory. Some of our number complained of the Chemistry Falls, for here, so the tale was told, were acids whose fumes were chok- ing, chemicals which exploded and burnt one, and there was broken glass flying in the air and many other unendurable things. Now, however, there was only one more obstacle in our way, Examination Shoals, but the little craft stood even these. A faint light appeared in the east; the morning sun showed its rim above the horizon; the mists rolled away from the river, and the curtain of night faded. The heaven’s blue was scudded here and there by fleecy white clouds; a song, sweet and clear, was heard; our eyes looked upward; there was a flash of black and golden wings; the glorious sun smiled kindly as we earth bound mortals tried to do something worthy of The Oriole of ’22. Our very boats responded and darted forward under this stimulus, to the goal where we will receive our rewards — our Diplomas — and we will find ourselves on the Sea of Life, drawn forward b v the unseen threads of Fate to what storms or havens that Fickle Goddess alone can know. Mary E. Amburn, ' 22 .

2S THE ORIOLE A shop antique will Georgia keep — Where all’s antique? Not she. And there, if you will take a peep, M iss Conduff’s paintings see! A senator is Carico, One honored near and far; And famous clown of famous show Is Eugene, e’en now a star. And, even as the mist closed in, There came from out that sea Piano and voice such as ne’er has been — It must Theo and Bessie be. Such strains, so sweetly filled the air, Then slowly died away, Giving a glimpse of what is there And what will be some day. Blanche Vaughn, ' 22.
