Page 50 THE ORIOLE HISTORY OF CLASS OF ’27 I IE history of the Class of ’27 is divided into three periods, namely, Ancient, Medieval, and Modem. The first written records of our Ancient His- tory were begun when we first entered the Fresh- man Class in Sept., 1923, with 55 members on roll. During this era of Ancient History in the First Year we studied Ancient Civilizations of the world, and we could be compared to it. We were very crude and did not know how to use our books and knowledge — by which it could hardly be called just as the men of the old stone age knew little about how to use the wonderful things in the world around them. Just as the ancients we were a merry group of pupils who did not look forward to the future but just took things as they came. But by degrees we began to learn until we entered the Medieval Age which was begun in the Second Year and lasted through the Third. Where nations became more civilized we became more used to the life in Pulaski Hi. During the Medieval Age we were very much interested in our school wo rk and also in school athletics. We had many mem- bers of the class who became noted on account of their ability as athletes. We were patriotic to our school and looked for- ward to the time when finally we would become Seniors and have privileges. At last we became Seniors which was the beginning of the Modern Era in our school life. Our teachers tried to make us take an interest in art and culture, but we did not take this seriously enough. We were called dignified Seniors but most- ly in jest. Most of us wanted to make this our best year ever and most of us did this so far as fun goes. Although we have had many ups and downs, we feel that our high school career as a whole has been a success and we are all proud to be members of the Class of ’27.

THE ORIOLE Page 51 CLASS POEM It was in the golden month September, As I dimly yet remember, Nineteen hundred twenty-three was the year, When we first assembled here. How long and yet how short it seems Till we realized our graduation dreams. V e came to High School as Freshmen, A motly, disorganized crew, And gradually learned to our sorrow That we knew less than we thought we knew. We have our virtues and faults as do others, But to each we’re as sisters and brothers. Farewell, dear Senior Class to you; We have labored through joy and sorrow too. At the end there is victory waiting For the class that conquers all, And the Senior Class will conquer — Conquer, before it will fall. Gray Baxter, ' 27.
