and then by parties which were given us, and some which we gave others. Then all except a few passed their exams and we left the Sophomore room. Then, the Junior year — the year when we were supposed to put away childish thoughts and ways and become young ladies and ' gentlemen. But alas! we only seemed to have reached our second childhood. Such tricks as we played! We almost ob- tained the name of being the worst class in Hi, but we did get by with a great many things without getting a good lecture and a few hours after school. Again our friend — Exams — approach- ed and we all burned some midnight oil and did some hard studying. Next the greatest year of all. We were Seniors. How dig- nified we felt, yet we kept our dignity well hidden, so the teach- ers told us. We were preached at day in and day out about talking. Did it do any good? No, not until after exams. Then some decided that if we would talk less and study more, that we might come nearer passing on exams. We tried but had little success. Thus passed the sorrows and joys, trials and tribulations of the Senior year. Now we part. Some of us shake hands for the last time. We will follow our different paths in life, whatever they are. But whatever our tasks may be, let us not forget our Alma Mater and our classmates in P. H. S. Class of ’26, farewell. Ruth Jackson, ' 26. [ 37 ]

In a picturesque little cottage on a dreamy lake lives a poet — a poet whom we all know. Who couldn’t help being in- spired to write something, living around such surroundings? Well, our poet and short story writer is Margaret Dyer. I can almost hear silvery strains of music floating from a Music Academy, where I see Mary Fitzhugh and Virginia Runion seated at a baby grand. They are famous musicians and composers. Now we see a ranch, a beautiful ranch in the western plains, tended by Judson Harris, where our “two-gun man” still holds his name, Judson being the best ranchman in the country. A desk, a typewriter, the old keys going click, click at top speed is kept in perpetual motion by Kathleen Hurst, stenog- rapher of Ford Company. But Kathleen isn’t satisfied, so climbs in to Secretary’s place. Two large Southern plantations, minus darkies picking- cotton, but filled with the latest improved methods and busily working machines. Two men strolling and giving advice, among the harvesters, both wearing large straw hats that shadow their smiling faces. ’Pon my word, it’s Walter Wyatt and Tom Jordan, our farmer boys. Ruth Jackson, although she is small, has a great work as historian. Artists! Who says we haven’t artists, for whether they’re drawing attention or drawing their breaths, David Kent and Inez Weeks are professionals along the drawing line. Smiling Margaret Kirkman, with market basket on arm, is seen purchasing meats, fruits and vegetables. Ho! she is not marketing for her mother; she has a home of her own. The scene is switched to St. Luke’s where we see a nurse — Lillian Lowman — who is superintendent. Pike Institute, the most noted school of the time, was es- tablished by Della and Lelia Pike, deserving sisters of ’26. With a smiling “Bon jour, mes enfants,” Kathryn Snapp takes her place before a smiling assembly of children. Oh! a kindergarten teacher, [ 39 ]
