LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT ’E, the Senior Class of nineteen hundred and twenty- five, owing to our proud nature in wishing to dispose of all of our old property and acquire new, and convinced of the fact that we will no longer be pupils of P. H. S. and cannot take property (termed ours) away with us, do hereby bequeath to the oncoming classes our property both real and personal. First, we will to the Junior Class our so called Senior Hall — - and by this we do not mean “Theodore.” This Hall is to be used at all times necessary, whether for roaming, social gather- ings (including gossips), or business meetings. We also will the Juniors our “little cretonne curtain” to be nailed up at the door when holding a business meeting, to keep those on the outside, not wanted on the “in,” and to keep the inquisitive passers by busy in guessing “What those Seniors are up to now.” We also will them the right to organize a “Band that will outrival Sousa’s” Also the right to listen to the songs sung to them by the Juniors without getting their deportment cut to “B.” Last, if not least, TAc OnWc, which has “chirped and chirped” so long for a leather back, in hopes its wish will be fulfilled and they can issue one not costing over two fifty. Second, to the remainder of the school we will the right to become “Seniors” with their many privileges, dignified ma nners, and commanding ways, the right to ask for a gymnasium and get it, and the right to join the Literary Society provided they will act when placed upon the program. Third, Carl Bunts wills his six feet four inches to Julian Grose- close. Ethel Lewey wills her “pulling bones” to Lelia Pike. James wills her surname “Cummings” to Otis Spraker, who never comes; also her ability as a basket ball player to Caroline Knapp. Margaret Brewer wills her “A’s” on deportment to Bill Thomas, and the right to get away with her sly tricks to Bud Crockett. Mable Coalson wills her “hair biscuits” to Lila Gilmer. Myrtle Myers wills her speed in getting to school to Ethel Lyons. 37

time to the poor and neglected of the city. Her cards will read Dr. J. V. Cummings, General Practitioner. For Elizabeth Conner, who has the mind of genius and who never knew what it was to make less than ninety-nine on French, there are of course great things in store for her. After completing a French course in gay Paree she will accept the position as French teacher at the Uni ersity of Ne ada. I see Ethel Lewey, who has a sunny, comical disposition, as the foremost comedienne of the day. She can play before New York’s largest audience but she prefers to play in the audi- toriums of welfare hospitals in large cities for the amusement of the poor and crippled children who cannot afford the price of public amusement. For Mary Burnett, who is so studious and so conscientious and broad minded, I foretell a great career as religious educator from the State of drginia. She travels all over the continent giving lectures on religious education. For Robert Carlyle Bunts I foretell a great career as a plastic surgeon. I can see him now in a handsome car rushing down the city streets, but the reason he is exceeding the speed limit is because he has been called in a hurry to perform a very serious as well as a skillful operation. He will make a name for himself as one of America’s foremost surgeons. For Lenis Hart I foretell a career as Professor of Agriculture at Cornell University. For Edgar Carico the future holds success which Edgar will stri e diligently to achieve. He will own a large printing office and will carry on the printing business with marked success. Last, but not least, comes Theodore Hall, the Demosthenes of the Twentieth Century. He will make a speedy entrance into Congress and after one of his lengthy and forceful argu- ments any bill he offers will pass Congress by an overwhelming majority. Daisy Lou Matheney, ’25. 36

Lena Gray wills her “blue dotted voile dress,’’ accomijanied by the guarantee it will not fade or shrink and will last a life- time, to Anna Cecil. Mildred Carson wills her long eyelashes to Lillian Lowman and her sweet smile to Flossie Nowlin. Louise Kirkner, since she chose to become a “Byrd’’ and fly away, wills her maiden name to Blanche W’hitaker. Daisy Lou Matheney wills her right to come and lea e school when she pleases to Mary Draper, also her sophisticated lec- tures to Ruth Jackson. Mary Burnett wills her “high shingle bob’’ to Lucile Umber- ger and her dimples to Ima Bunts. Audrey Sasher wills her “blushes’’ to June Hurd — she has “moore’’ to will but won’t. Theodore Hall wills his “senatorship” to Robley Wood. Louise Hurst wills her right to purchase three packs of “Wrigley’s Gum’’ for her class-mates to Tom Jordan. Lenis Hart wills his poetical ability to Dewey Dalton. Rhoda Neel Sheppard wills her short dresses to Louise Bryant. Marie Hardy wills her nick name “Grandma’’ to Gray Baxter and her knowledge to Charles Gatewood. Edgar Carrico wills his reputation as “Sheik of the Senior Class’’ to Dick Glenn, also the right to become stubborn during “French class’’ to Ansell Derrick. Louise Strauss wills her amiable disposition to Inez Weeks. Elizabeth Conner wills her love to help her fellow students to Lena Bones. Selma Quesenberry wills her private box at the Dalton The- atre to Sallie Farmer. Virginia Roberts wills her gentle voice to Katherine Dudley. Dorothy Spence wills her mass of black hair to Lucile Byrd. Virginia Snider wills her neatness in dress to Tom Dale. Anna Smith wills her “baby talk’’ to Margaret Dyer. Fourth, to the faculty we will the following; To Prof. Brugh, our sincere appreciation for the interest he has taken in keeping us in our own room and out of chapel during study hours, also for the interest he has shown in us by having a speaker to address us every Monday morning in chapel. 38
