This may not be good taste. We may even go so far as to state that we
will possibly be accused of floundering in a sea of ego, and of throwing
bouquets at our self-satisfied craniums. But as Mussolini or Ray Sprague-
or somebody just as good once stated-"It pays to advertise." And so,
on the other hand, besides the proverbial wart, is also the very evident
fact that if you don't toot your own horn-no one else will. And that's
otiicial. So know ye this, and understand that-
The class is the class of '26. fWith plenty of stress on the t-h-e.J
It's the class that started-even as eighth graders, a school paper-the
Hrst one that has been kept in running order by a staff composed for the
most part of the members of the class of '26. Moreover this is the largest
class of students of St. Mary's High School, who have ever lived through
four years of diligent study. Believe it or not-it's authentic.
The basketball team, which was formed in the Sophomore year of this
class had on its regular line-up four boys of the present Senior group, one
on the second team and another as business manager for the aggregation.
A member of this class in that same memorable Sophomore year wrote
the prize-winning essay on "Health" over the contestants from the other
schools of Marietta.
And spirit-we consider the word "pep" to have deserved a well
earned rest in the annals of class talk-it speaks for itself. We have the
distinction of being a class to be avoided. We're not saying that we had the
right kind of spirit--but spirit there was-it was the flesh that was Weak.
And original-the zenith of originality is reached by us. We haven't
even gotten a class ring yet because of it. But we have a plan and if that
plan is successful we can still retain some originality despite the fact that
all the rings will be the same.
A pianist of note who evinces real talent, yet despite that is a human
being and not an oddity.
A trained Ford that is the most accommodating piece of machinery on
four wheels that ever jolted over the streets of Marietta. Its flat tires
occur only at stated intervals, as for instance when its owner walks into
school about twenty minutes late.
A human fashion plate, a Beau Brummel of masculine style.
A student who can give a little burlesque on the "stretching man"
who visited us last year.
A singer who com sing and still wears the same size hat as she did
before it was discovered that she had a voice.
A girl who, outside of Harold Lloyd, is about the only one who really
looks like something in shell rimmed glasses. And that's an accom-
A sure enough Irish girl who would rather be buried alive in green
than rule as queen of Germany in red.
And two writers, one full fledged, the other in embryo.
We've gone through a lot and we are battle scarred, but all in all you've
got to admit that we're a pretty good class for the shape we'rci:3i16 G

Wilma doesn't take a thing seriously.
She's gay, she,s pensive at times and after
that a riot of moods-that all end happily-
like the bewitching little novels she'll write
Jim is a living advertisement for "what
the well-dressed man will wear." Moreover
he is one of those brilliant "props" of the
class. Whether in expounding lofty prin-
ciples or selecting tiesg Jim leads all the
"She is very small as you can see
But smallness in a small degree."
That's Josephine! She has no more brains
than the rest of us-the difference lies in
the way she uses them.
