THE FRESHMEN EXPRESS THEMSELVES
A YOUNG AMERICANS DIARY
Any Schoolday 1940
Got up Went through the same rrgmarole
Finally got to school Oh' dear' Eight monoton
ous perrods Well, there s one consolatron
Were not rn Italy or Germany or France or
Theres the buzzer' a few minutes of
sclence The composition of matches e
velns and arterres, but not the frrmg mechanism
of a machine gun Agaln the buzzer Assembly
a debate the abrlrty to say what you want
It s over and then on to English class Ivan
hoe, The Lady ofthe Lake good lrterature
not the trash sent out by a Mrnrstry of Publrc
Inlormatlon and Enlightenment
Algebra class Oh' what s the volume of
that tank7 Anyway rt s not the elevatrng range
of a gun
Hurrah' It s lunch trme good old Amencan
food not substrtutes One oclock and work
French class lm not being forced to learn It
from a mrlltary standpoint
Study hall preparatrons done and nothing to
What s that7 the Great Seal of the Unrted
States an eagle the symbol of courage
majesty greatness Not a hooked cross the
symbol of death or a bundle of Easces, the old
Roman symbol of authorrty Cltrzenshlp class
the talk of school and preparing for a vocation
not a mrlrtary school such as England s Sand
rlngham or France s Sarnt Ayr and preparing for a
vocatlon of destructron Home and supper
Then out a vrsltln and not drllllng In a Bund
meeting Home again to lrsten to the radio
Kaltenborn s short terse, rm partial reports and
Wlnchell s sometimes too vehement partlallty
not tarnted reports delrvered by Germany s Lord
Ha Ha Then to bed and thanks for not Irvrng In
Thus, In the jargon ofa newsoaperman 30 rs
written to another day
YOUNG AMERICANS DIARY
When I m old I II pleasures fund
In yesterdays brought back to mrnd
Not mrghty deeds just common thrngs
Tasks and joys that each day brrngs
Its an easy thang to wrlte
Just a few Irnes every night
Telling of the fun Ive had
Or how someone made me glad
HIS FIRST DATE
Sorta thrilled and kinda whlte
Was poor Duck s face thrs lovely nrght
Hrs steps were laltenng rt was late
When he called on hrs Frrst date
He frnally arrived and knocked on the door,
When no one came, he knocked some more
Then out she came from a blaze of Irght
To go wrth hum thus moonlrt nrght
First to dinner well have to go
Then on to some good early show
Refreshments later we must eat,
Sand she rn a volce so southern sweet
Duck turned whute and felt sorta :Il
For all he had was a dollar blll
How wrll I pay the expenses hlgh7
He wondered tml he thought he d due
When Duck had left her at her door,
He murmured Good nrght and sand no more
But he decided rrght there and then
I wrll never date that gurl agaln
MY FIRST DATE
My heart was all a flutter,
My splrlt blrthe and gay
I was helpful to my mother
And I sang throughout the day
Mother smlled at me so brightly
As I flrtted to and fro
For she once was young and sprlghtly
And my joy she well dad know
She watched me as I curled my halr
And put rouge upon my cheek
She watched me hurry down the starr,
And out the window peek
She watched me srt down In a charr
Ourte nervously to walt,
And seemg father s curlous alr,
Sand Mary has a date
There II be pranks and mlschlef, too
I II scarce believe exactly true
Yet I hope that when I look
O er the pages of thus book
I shall be proud and qurte content
Wrth this tale of years well spent

THE FRESHMEN EXPRESS THEMSELVES
Some people thrnk that when theIr names
Are known In town and state
That they have been successful
Because therr names are great
But you know Ill take the average man
Who really has success
Because he knows It Isn t fame
But just plaIn happrness
WHAT CONSTITUTES SUCCESS7
There IS no set of rules that can be defmrtely
lard down to Insure everyone s success If there
were, all would be perfect but the world would
be a dreary place because of the lack of In
centrve for betterment and competItIon
There are, however, a few prrncrples whlch
must be applred for foundatron of a successful
career Frrst each Indrvrdual must drscover hrs
natural trends and talents He must then go for
ward determrned to work hard and overcome all
obstacles that may confront hIm We are told
dbIlItI2S are unlrmrted
The people who are most lrkely to succeed are
the trarned and educated Specral traInIng In our
natural talents gIves us more abrlrty and power
Added to a thorough educatron we must have
courage determrnatron, confrdence In ourselves
honesty and a good sense of cooperatron
For the person who applIes these prlncrples
there can be nothrng but success

ASSEMBLIES I LIKE
l always look forward to our assemblres at
Southslde because they mean a perrod of relaxa
tron and excellent entertamment l belreve l
enjoy most the programs whrch Include the
musIcIans who In natrve costumes brrng to us
the musrc and dances of other lands Other
pooular forms of entertarnment are bands musrcal
qurzzes and symphony orchestras
ln my oprnron some of the most educatlonal
and Interestrng assemblIes are those In whrch we
have well known persons from all over the coun
try soeak Therr toprcs Include Internatlonal
affarrs occupatrons travel and adventure
AssemblIes not only brrng outsrders INTO our
school but they QIVQ the DUpIlS a chance to show
theIr InItIatIve and orIgInalIty In presentlng an
nouncements for school actIvItIes Of course we
all enjoy havrng our student government take
charge and gettrng together once a week seems
to make school lIfe much brIghter
TO AN UNKNOWN CAREER
Wrth Apologres to Rudyard Krplrng

When college IS over and done7
Wlll you promIse a future of hardshrp
Or one of delrght or of fun'7

But l gaze on them all from afar
Shall l look In the future and frnd there
A career or just more thrngs to do7
Shall l teach In a gym or a classroom7
Or make a desrgn for a shoe7
Shall l be a Greek dancer an artIst7
Or play a plano or sIng7
Shall l make funny rhymes for the teacher7
