The Oriole play, “Miss Blue Bonnet,” was a big success and we greatly enjoyed backing Mary Board and Dorothy Neighbours in the cast. As you see, the class of ’31 has prize scholars, athletes, business ability, musicians, artists, orators and debaters; but I would not do the class justice if I failed to mention the school-girl complexions of Charlie White, Regina Bowles, and myself. Diplomas are received, and we joyfully and sorrowfully leave this school to the class of ’32, hoping that they will take as good care of it as we have done before them. This is the solemn and sacred history of my class. Yours truly and very sincerely, Katherine Knapp, ’ 31 . 53 M

Class History NCE upon a time, many long years ago, we fifty-six Seniors were seventy-nine Freshmen, remarkable for good looks and exemplary conduct. Our various idiosyncrasies were industriously pointed out by the Sophomores, espe- cially Mary Board’s talent for conversing fluently and continuously. Ollie Ingles joined us then and her prospects for yelling were promising; she is now our cheer leader. In that memorable year the walls of the school were painted, with each pupil giving a small donation, while the walls of the auditorium were painted by the School Board. As Sophomores we were fewer but still as famed, now and then con- tributing numbers to the Literary Society programs, with Margaret Rauhof as our star performer. Also, while we were Sophomores there was a stunt night in which each class gave a stunt, ours being a mock wedding and proving a great success. We sponsored an art exhibit and as a result some paintings were purchased for the auditorium. There were no “Jollier Juniors” than we, with “Biz” Cox as a rare specimen, and added much to the life of the school, though we did not think of annoying the teachers. Mabel Lewey can explain her healthy size by the Kiwanis luncheons which she attended that year. So you see we had some good scholars, even then. As Juniors we helped more with the Oriole than previously and Robert King donated an essay. Bud Neily was our president. He did well. We explain that by saying that he is a mem- ber of the class of ’31. Now we are fifty-six Seniors as before stated. S. N. Hurst, Jr., has joined us and proves to be an athlete in about the class as Jack Bones, Jim Joe Crockett, Alfred Whitt, and Frank Flkins. Neil Fine also dropped in on us the last year and adds distinction to the class with his music. With Anna Snider, editor-in-chief, Jim Joe Crockett, business manager, and Miss Du Val as sponsor the Oriole is published, a very good book this year. 52 11 f) H 11

Class Prophecy HAVING finished my training course at Wurno, thought 1 had seen enough of that kind of life, so decided to travel. Not having seen Elizabeth Cox for some time and hearing that she was going to V. P. I., I plan to drop in on her. She is tired of school life so decides to go with me as a chaperon. While I am at V. P. I. I see Virgil Anderson who is head of the dairy department; he is prospering very well, and with Julius Gray as his assistant old V. P. I. does not seem the same. Frank Elkins is stable boy, and as he shows great interest in the dairy business he has great hopes of some day becoming manager. We travel on and decide to visit Chicago, as the newspaper which Lilburn Jonas edits is overflowing with the mighty deeds and acts of the “Crockett Gang,” which includes Jim Joe Crockett, Dink Whitaker, Tom Huddle, Otis Marshall, and Alfred Whitt, who terrorize the animals of the “Wirt” zoo with their manner of eating peanuts. After visiting these ferocious specimens, we are rushed out to the air- port to take oft for New York in “Speed” Richardson’s airplane, much to Biz’s delight. On arriving at New York, we are met by Virginia Coleman in her limousine, with her chauffeur “Pat” Bocock. She takes us to Madame Board’s famous and exclusive designing department. Then we see Mabel Lewey, Margaret Manuel, Rena Sue Groseclose, and Helen Morehead as models. All of them are dressed in beautiful clothes designed by Madame Board. We are rushed upstairs by Henry Martin, the daredevil elevator boy. Up there we are shown to the radio broadcasting office by the same dare- devil Henry, and hear Miss Ruth Johnson broadcasting over station WJZ. We stay, charmed by her wonderful voice. The next number we hear is “She’ll be Cornin’ Down the Mountain,” sung by our own Graham Davis. It is time for dinner and we are escorted by Virginia Coleman to her home where the door is opened by Jack Bones, the venerable butler. After a delightful dinner we are taken to Madison Square Garden, to see the “Mighty” Hurst in a prize fight with Primo Canerio. We are very much surprised to find that Sam has improved and is actually able to strike him once. Tiring of this bloodthirsty performance, we decide to go to a night 54
