Frosh Fruits of Thought
MY OPINION OF UPPER-
See the mighty seniors, bless 'em,
How their weighty duties press 'emi
See the curls and "spiffy" ties
And their thoughtful, solemn eyes.
We admit that we admire 'em,
Though they say that freshies tire 'em.
List their words with wisdom fraught
Yes, they give us food for thought.
MY OPINIJ-CTF THE SENIORS
You Seniors hold your heads so high
And snub us as we pass.
I guess you are the whales round here
And we are just the bass.
You seem to think that freshmen
Are as green as they can he,
But you were freshmen, too, one time
And greener yet than we. '
WHY WE'RE THE HOPE OF THE
The hope of our school, dear South-
side High, lies in the class of Nineteen
Thirty-two. Although we are the fresh-
man now, some day we shall be the sen-
Our class has leadership, talent and
scholarship. Three more years we have
to develop these and we shall have reach-
ed the goal. XVe may lead in sports and
studies. Dramatists or artists we may
become. XVe may even be members of
the treasured Honor Society, for our
class is the future hope of the school.
-Charlotte E. Hyde.
I'd like to be a junior,
They truly are discreet.
Do they see a little freshie
As in the halls they meet?
Like the Priest or the old Levite,
Along the halls they stride.
Oh! I long to be a junior
For I'll speak-and walk beside.
I soon will be a junior,
The battle's just half done.
I'll give a smile to help along,
Until the victory's won.
e -Ida Yeager.
MY OPINION OF UPPER
NVhy should we feel bad when a senior
ignores us as he passes by? They are
just four years-or maybe more-ahead
of us. Isn't it funny how they forget
their freshmen days? They ean't deceive
us: they aren't so very sophisticated. You
see how it is. They have labored from
four to six years in high school to attain
such a position and they want to be rec-
ognized by humble freshmen. But we
wont cry. VVelll someday be seniors.
Upper elassmen, you are good,
And, of course, 'tis understood.
You, as well, are just as bright
Really you're our guide and light.
Don't you mind the taunts you get,
Never worry, never fret,
You've a good right to be proud,
Hark not to the teasing crowd.
Isn't it odd how one forms opinions
of others? W'e Freshies choose upper-
classmen as our targets. I am not alone
in thinking upper-classmen nice, for they
themselves agree with me. Anyone can
tell that by the manner in which they
strut about, casting only a superior
glance at us. They seem to feel that
tl1ey are the only intelligent beings on
earth. However, I shall not press my
criticisms too pointedly, for I expect to
be an upper-classman some day.
THE BEST TIP I GOT IN S. H. S.
Good tips are rarely given freely. How-
ever, I received one that was very con-
vincing. A tall, dark upper classman
dashed past me on that certain day.
Knowing no better, he hurried on.
XVhen he came to the corner he tur11ed
it neatly, but seemed to rebound in-
stantly. As if by magic one of the fac-
ulty confronted him. She told him the
rules and regulations of the school, and
a great deal more besides. Slowly he
walked on. I thought that a pretty good
tip. Don't you?-Virginia Graybill.
The best tip I received in S. H. S. was
given by a seventh grader. VValking
along the hall, I noticed a commotion
ahead. Consequently I marched right
into the turmoil to investigate.
Unnoticed by me, a small seventh
grader came up behind, Immediately, as
was meant. I tripped over his foot. I
then tipped onto the floor. VVhen I re-
gained n1y equilibrium, no lower class-
men were in sight. However, many
upper classmen were making merry over
my spectacular tip.-Lowell Moss.
MY OPINION OF MY UPPER
Though just a freshman young and green
Many seniors I have scene.
And now the chance 2 mee has cum
Two ball u seniors out, buy gum!
Now wur I boss uv this large school
U'd cum 2 earth and act quite kool
And quit your soreing way up hi
VVhere wee purr freshman long too fli.
