Page Thirteen THE TAR -BO -RAH Swin time in Springtime Somehow it seems that life begins Anew for all w hen it is spring — And so it seems befitting here To all our patient readers bring The history of our class in terms Of seasons — and in rhyme — ' Tis little we remember now Of lessons learned before the time Of algebra and chemistry That occupied our later years. This little page relates our growth ' Ere we began high school careers — Enstallment one of our checkered past — Swingtime in springtime — long may it last! Page Fourteen 1939 Swin time in Springtime The spring of nineteen thirty-six Found us entrenched in High School With most a year behind us then Of harder work and sterner rule — Besides our algebra we learned A more important thing — That there ' d come into music A type that ' s known as swing! The only swing we knew before Was made of chains and wood, But Benny Goodman ' s music Changed its meaning — and for good! We shagged into our second year At good old T. H. S. We swing into a stunt night That was a grand success — As Juniors all our efforts turned Toward putting on a show For the Junior-Senior banquet, — The night of nights, you know. Swing played a mighty part in this — We put on many dances. The flying heels we had to miss Might well be termed as " chances " ! Now. in our Senior year, we ' ve tried To round out high school knowledge With every type of work we ' ll nc:d To see us through in college — Studying, debating, all athletics. Music, acting, — everything We changed to higher tempo To keep the beat of — swing! Swingtime in Springtime! That phrase you ' ve heard before — But wait a minute, readers — turn the page — we ' ll tell you more! Page Fifteen THE TAR-BO-RAH Prophecy Another catchy little phrase That suits our purpose here Is " Ringtime in Springtime " . . . We ' ll make its meaning clear. The fortunes of the Seniors, Told in picture and in rhyme, Will all come true, so we believe, Within the proper time. They ' ll follow many different trades. And be successes, too. But eventually they ' ll imitate Our Susie and our Hugh. Herbert will be a naturalist, Hazel Briley ' ll be a teacher, While those of us who know him best Think George will be a preacher. Beulah ' s future holds for her A column of society. As a hostess. Lois Jean will be A model of propriety. The paper published by Robert Knox Will have Sarah for its poet. While Dan. as journalist, will write And let the whole world know it. Warren will be a photographer For Clinton ' s picture show, And Johnnie, as a banker, Will help their fortunes grow. Margaret will pose in lovely gowns That our Winifred designs, While Mabel will edit " Made- moiselle " After Edith Taylor resigns. David ' s fight for championship Ed ' s radio station will bring; While songs that Loraine Edwards writes Dorothy Lancaster will sing. Blanche and Lucy, both beauti- cians, And Virginia Coley, graduate nurse. Will live together in some big city And pool resources in one purse. Charles Fountain, president of Duke. And Frances, his secretary, Prophecy Let Dorothy. Lady Sunshine, Keep them both always quite merry. Rosa Harris, dean of women there. And Lessie. dietitian. Will have portraits made | by Elsie Ford That will win in competition. Doris will model stunning gowns. Mattie write a lovelorn column; And Joe, a portly politician, Will become extremely solemn. Irwin. New York ' s best-paid chemist, Will work in May ' s new chemist shop. James Cratch will make the sandwiches For Bennie Brown, the cop. Oscar, a well-known architect. Will plan Beatrice a home; While Alton. U. A. ' s famous flyer, Over all the world will roam. Hazel Brown will forsake her post As a Phys. Ed. director, So William Duncan, our dry cleaner. Can become her sole protector. Phoebe Jane, behin ' d the desk Of a library in some town, Will buy books from Winnie ' s bookshop. And on light fiction frown. Dene, ever grace itself, Will be dancing with Astaire While Anne, a gay divorcee. Will have given three husbands the air. These things hold true for just a while, Until some bright spring day ' Twill be " Ringtime in Spring- time, " With romance holding sway.
