SENIOR CLASS WILL
We, the class of '39 of Southside High School, having attained to the highest degrees of cranial
development, overly anxious to imprint our humble worth upon this world, influenced by the thought
of no more homework, and being of half-sound and impractical mind, do deviate from our regular
study-hall nap to announce this our first, last, and soon-to-be-forgotten will and testament.
ln order to save the expense of added desks, we, the Seniors, do bequeath to our Alma Mater
fewer post-graduates for the coming term.
With the payment of a few more installments, we shall be able to leave to Mr. McNaught a sling
for the lndian's arm and a new tail for the horse.
To our Faculty Advisors, Miss Haupt and Mr. Hunt, we express our sincere gratitude for their
splendid supervision and enduring patience throughout this, our most exciting year.
Perceiving duplications of our laudable individual qualities in the blooming personalities of our
beloved under-classmen, '39 sees fit to bequeath the following:
-To the next Senior Class President, the worthy crown and sceptre of Danny Backer.
-To William Tupper, Philip Reed's well-earned scholastic standing.
-To Harvey Wolf, the adolescent love affairs of Stanley Brown.
-Agnes Scogland bequeaths her faultless attire to Pauline Janowski.
-Robert Steinhauser leaves to Nathan Schoonover his unsurpassable gift of gab.
-Mike Abbott bequeaths to his kid brother, Tom, his glory-worn football suit and number.
-Jean Lewis and Mary Lynch bequeath their perfect friendship to Wilma Cole and Marjorie lves.
-To his successor in the Class of '40, Bob Brady bequeaths his ability to thrill the faculty with
torrid swing assemblies.
-To Ethel Outt, that these halls may continue to resound Eleanor Lown's giggle.
-To Charlotte Hewitt, the charming personality of Luella Petticrew.
-To Dorothy Wheeler, Virginia Shea's version of the Buffalo Hop.
-To Leroy C"Buck"J Snyder, the winning smile of Walter Anderson.
--l, Roy Palmer, bequeath my volume entitled "Argumentation" to Lawrence Ayres.
-l, Marguerite Strouse, bequeath my headaches and worries concerning the El-So-Hi publications
to the future editor.
-l, Betty Jacque, bequeath my super-agreeable disposition to Joyce King.
-We, Margaret Biggs, Marion Davies, and Eleanor Johnson, bequeath our athletic fortitude to
Beatrice Emerick, Malvina Mitchell, and Hazel Broich.
-We, Norma Tunnicliff, Marjorie Baldwin, and Pat Lynch, bequeath our worries as assistant directors
of the Senior Play to our ambitious successors.
We, the undersigned witnesses, having been duly dishonored by the Senior Class in being called
to bear witness to this absurd verbal effort of a delinquent mind, do submit our worthy signatures hereto,
as witness thereof, in the full belief that all students are created dumb.

THE MARCH OF "39"
September, 1935-S.H.S. traffic squad called out to search for Class of "39," son of Elmira Public

for Room 212.
October, 1935-Crowds gather at doors of auditorium as Freshman Class advisers, Miss O'Connor
and Mr. George are carried out on stretchers, completely exhausted after sub-
duing a row over the class colors.
l l "39" Marches On l l
March, 1931-Sophomore Hop a huge success:
8:00-Gym is completely surrounded by stags fearing the charge.
Two couples brave the dance floor.
10:00-Floor is weakening under the stag line.
Three couples "trip" to the soothing strains of "Tiger Rag."
