Sen1or Class Prophecy
Lymg on the hearth rug before the embers that teach l1ght to counterfe1t a gloom
readxng the story of Shakespeare s melancholy hero of Denmark I find my attent1on
wander1ng and mstead of the ghostly form of the murdered k1ng there ar1ses before
me the 1mages of four boys and eleven g1rls
At the close of the opemng day of Rhea Central I-I1gh School a mother addresses
her daughter who 1s a freshman 1n that school Well my dear d1Cl you find your
Domest1c SCIENCE Teacher charm1ng9 Iunderstand you have a new one th1s year
Mother she IS altogether adorable I bel1eve she knows everyth1ng about calorxes food
compos1t1on proporuon and household chem1stry In the mtroduction the pr1nc1pal
sa1d that she has a degree from Columb1a UHIVCYSIIY MISS Emma Campbell IS her name
Over the keys the musmg orgamst br1ngs the slght of St CCCIIIH Adm1rat1on
g1VCS way to wonder as the performer st1ll enraptured by the glor1es of her 1nterpreta
t1on turns her face and I see that Hazel Allen IS calllng forth the ravlshlng sounds
a close compet1tor of the fabled Orpheus
The m1n1ature saint rolls downward and 1n a large coal behmd I see a modernly
equ1pped farm house 1n the m1dst of well kept grounds From the end of a falllng
chunk lssues a mult1tude of sparks whtch Hylng upward take the shapes of baby Ply
mouth Rocks In the gleam1ng foreground I see the farmer s wxfe formerly Bess Tay
lor her 1nterest d1v1ded between feedlng the ch1ckens and watch1ng the d1stant tractor
dr1ven by her husband
The sputter1ng flame shows 1n outl1ne a cozy bungalow and w1th1n th1s surrounded
by home comforts d1splay1ng culture and refinement s1ts Mrs Paul Gamble Sp1vey
She IS read1ng an account of a m1raculous system of electrxcal slgnals perfected by that
w1zard of electr1c1ty Don Benson
The grotesque fantas1es assume another shape th1s t1me the form of a young man
clad 1n overalls and hlckory shlrt HIS speed betokens h1s eagernsss and I hear h1m
saymg No more city l1fe for me I m gomg back to S W McDonald and the farm
And I know Kerm1t w1ll be welcome
The dancxng fa1r1es of the fire become ch1ldren 1nterested1n bu1ld1ng blocks playmg
games slngxng sand and colored crayons In answer to my query as to how the l1ttle
elves take care of themselves there appears the klndergarten teacher Anna Mary Ew

Semor Class Poem
At R C H there IS a class
Wlth many a brave lad and lass
Senlorsl Senlors bentors
Here W6 l1'lVC lDOfl'l PlL'lSL1l'6 2ll1Cl FCHI'
But HOW Wt' P111 Wltll lI'l3I1y 'l t6'lI'
For WC HFC SCDIOFS HOW YOU lCI'lOW'
Alld SO 21l'lS W8 l'l1VC IO gO
But just one moment ere we go
Out m the world to hoe our row
We ll meet today thls Class o true
And fly our color Gold and Blue
Ah yes once more for old tlme s sake
Before our dlfferent ways we take
For here they come wlth steps so slow
These Senlors who must walk just so
T1s Emma flrst with smlle or tear
To every Senlor she IS dear
For kmdness famed both far and wlde
To class mates she s a help and guide
Who xs thls so tall and hne9
He surely IS of royal ltne
Why ll s Ayres' our pet you know
And what he says If s sure to go
And here comes Kermlt wlth stately a1r
For he must take the Presldent s chair
Our Presxdent gallant and true
Works always for the Gold and Blue
School Ma am Mary and Artlstlc Anne
These are the girls who always can
Wlrh Oma Allce and all the rest
We cannot tell whlch we love best
Are we all here this Class so lane
We re busy bees but all on tmae
Now what shall me say before we go
To what and where we do not know
Some now thmk about the past
Some the future of the Class
When Floyd gets up amrd the roar
And asks the chairman for the floor
A nod from Don and Floyd goes on
We ve all got here let s have some un
Now dry your eyes and ralse one shout
Before the Faculty puts us out
Three cheers for Fess and all the rest
Then each one yelled his very best
Thls ofcourse provoked a smlle
And then they chose to talk awhlle
They talked of hopes and sweet dCSll'2S
Things to which the heart aspires
And how they longed great wrongs to rxght
And be vlctorlous m the fight
statesmen some to gam much fame
else to soothe the brow of pam
chance msplre young mmds to thmk
move the world w1th prmter s 1nk
Among them Kings o er Nature s Realm
Those who bravely gurde the helm
Perchance the ueen of a cozy home
Dear teachers all we say goodbye
But not without a tear and slgh
For unto us you have been kxnd
And your precepts we ll keep IH mmd
Professor I-licks has been our friend
Hrs Influence too wlll wlde extend
And we the Class of Twenty one
Will sound his pralses for laurels won
Our dear Mlss Arrants our prlde and joy
She holds each heart of girl or boy
Her servlces we can ne er forget
And we are glad our ways haxe met
We ll here Include Professor Fooshee
Wlao has worked to keep us from lgnorance
In daxly llfe he s been smcere I ree
Success he ll have from year to year
Agaln dear faculty goodbye goodbye
To dear school friends the same we cry
As forth we go to different worlds
We go as b tter boys and glrls
