Hui!!milElIIllHMIHiIlm!lwillglllihllszllgllllllllll lllllllllgzllgllgllg Uliuutin' dhur Q9tnn laura 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. We have- 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- plishment. 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 - . ' ., '26. 16

WILMA WINSTEL 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 some day. JAMES TORPY 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 rest. JOSEPHINE YOST "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. 15
