,% 03 A , A A Page 68 THE ORIOLE PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF ’30 T IS with a strange feeling that I attempt to look into the future, four years from now, and tell a few of the achievements of our class. The old, ! old proverb, “A prophet has honor save in his own country,” will most assuredly apply to me when I have finished my prophecy. Our class emerged from the grades in the spring of ’26 and the same fall entered the Freshman Class. The term “Fresh- men” took a least bit of air out of our puffed sails. The in- itiating into the high school lasted for about two months and we became happily used to the conditions that pertain to a Freshman. Now let us look intothefuture and visualizejust abit. At last we have arrived at the long four-year journey. The years have been spent in an enjoyable manner. When we were in the Freshman year we thought it unlikely that we would ever become Seniors. The wheels of time have quickly cut their ruts and four mile-posts have been passed along the shore of Time. The football season, which just closed, was one of the most successful one ever experienced by our school. Under the leadership of our efficient coach, Mr. G. D. Flodges, our team captured the State Championship. Air. Hodges gave the best of his experience gained from the gridiron of his own Alma M ater, Milligan. All the tactics acquired from the dashing “Buffaloes” were used by Coach Hodges, and with telling effect he has instilled into our boys football warfare that finds its equal only on the college gridirons. Not only have we progressed in athletic activities but also in many other ways too. When we were Freshmen we were always looking forward to the time when we would be heir to some of those real or fancied Senior privileges. But with the passing of time our opinions have been revised and we find that a great majority of the privileges supposed to be granted Seniors are more fancied and phantom than real or concrete. In closing this prophecy I want to try to reflect the entire sentiments of our class in declaring that being a Senior in high school is something to look forward to and work for and that the only thing that we would think of exchanging a seniorship for would be a freshmanship in college. Georgia C. Hudson, Prophetess.

Page 70 THE ORIOLE THE FOLLY OF AN EDUCATION (A Satire ) N this era of drug store cowboys and youthful flappers so much is heard of the advantages of an education. How foolish the thought! Of course the world is growing wiser, but that only proves the accuracy of the Bible, for does not that good Book say that the “human race will grow weaker but wiser.” In the days of our forefathers “men were men and women were good housewives, God bless them,” but few of them had the rudiments of an education. They did possess good health and wonderful physiques. Abraham Lincoln was born a poor ignorant boy and was happy in the wilds of Indiana until the time some straggling man came along and told him he should have an education. Foolish youth that he was he set about to obtain it. His learn- ing led him to the President’s chair where he spent four years of mental torture and was then killed. If he had remained ignorant he might have lived to an old age and died peacefully. In the old days we had secrets. In this day of wireless, telephone and radios you can not whisper unless your next door neighbor hears you, and if you cuss the family cat some human over in the next State will have you arrested for cruelty to animals. In the old days all you had to do was to get up before the break of day, take a hoe and work in the com field all day. Now you are aroused from your beauty slumber at eight in the morning, made to get up, take books under your arm and ride off to school where you tax your mental capacity all day long trying to solve some Chinese puzzle that the teacher has pro- pounded to you. How silly! Why should we take all the labor off our brawny arms and place it all on that little ounce of gray matter that reposes in our dome? Are we not imposing on the weak and small? If we do not know anything about any of the world except that immediate vicinity that surrounds us we will have nothing to worry about.
