Class History N the beginning was the class, assembled from every part. In trio did they journey from the South, and singly from the North. And the names of those from the South are Lacie, Linus, Hollis. The traveler from the North is called by the prophet, Lucille. And their minds were without form and void and darkness was upon them. And ambition moved upon them and caused a great hunger to fall upon them, and they cried out and said, ' Let us have light. " And it came to pass that a light fell upon them as from a drove of moonbeams, and the light was called " learning, " and the darkness was called " ignorance. " The morning and the evening was the first year. And Learning whispered and said unto them, " Let there be built a foundation in the midst of strife and weakness and let it divide thee from the ignorant. " And so it was that so great was their diligence that it was achieved even as Learning had spoken. And there journeyed to them other apostles; one whose name is called Oline, from the land of the Euphrates; four from the homeland, whose names are called Laura, Irene, John T., and the fourth, Francis. Lastly, one from the far land of bitter cold and fathomless snow, and his name was called Ivin. Together they toiled and they saw that labor was good. And the evening and the morning was the second year. And they ' said one to another, " Let us band ourselves together that we may with greater faith surmount our failures. " And it was done even as they had spoken, and behold they saw a stranger approaching. While he was yet afar off and when he drew near they saw the light of friendship upon his face and beheld him as one of themselves. And they called his name Carlyss. And again was it given unto them to see another stranger drawing near and with her was another of like countenance which was like unto an angel ' s ( ?), so great was the zeal therein. And their names were called Oline and Laura, after the manner of the scribes and Pharisees. And forthwith they toiled without ceasing with those that were in that place, and the reward of them that toiled was called Intelligence. And the morning and evening was the third year. And all they in that blessed company waxed exceedingly strong, and forthwith there came upon them a grievous hunger which sat upon them in that place. And the hunger was for greater knowledge. Immediately they rose and pursued that hunger which had awakened in them. And as they neared the city there came one running toward them and in him they saw another of themselves so great was his zeal. And his name was called Haskel. And they journeyed yet another pace, and as they drew near unto the city suddenly there fell upon them a silence like unto a tomb and they opened not their mouths. And in ihe midst of the stillness came a still small voice which said, " Follow not the path of the foolish, but humble thyself, exact not the false due, tarry yet awhile until e be imbued with kindness and hope and keep thy faith in God, so shalt thou dwell in peace and verily thou shalt prosper. " And immediately they woke and a great joy came upon them at their journey ' s end, for surely they had found the beginning of wisdom. And t he morning and the evening was the fourth year which had brought them to the end of their journey. 33

Class Poem Our president is blue eyed Lacie McLain, With a voice of sweet and melodious strain. Our vice-president is Linus Jackson, with hair of gold, Who is a wonderful pianist so I ' ve been told. Secretary, Irene Holland, I must tell you Is noted for good grades and for Expression too. Is it a secret? Or must I tell? I hear the ringing of her wedding bell. Lucille Cannon is studious and fine. But with no man she will spend her time. And good Oline Shelton is full of joy Because she never thinks of any boy. Francis Davis has nothing much to say, Yet she makes good grades almost every day. Laura Smith is tall, fair and quite gay, And graduates from music in the month of May. Our big flirt, Glenn McLain, so sensible (?) and sane (?) Is a bother to our president, Lacie McLain. And Holland London, from the big state, Is another flirt and orator great. Liked by all is his twin brother, Ilaskel, But, alas, girls! They tell me he is so bashful. Sam Hammond, the silver-tongued debater, Among the girls is a favorite waiter. John T. Benson, Jr., is a " matey, " strong and true, Yet he makes a good business manager, too. Ivin Smith plays a cornet with joy, And Carlyss, his brother, is a popular boy. Vernon Young, it must be said with some hesitation, Like our flower, the sweet pea, is just good for decoration. And the very way people are kept awake nights is a sin By Hollis trying to pick tunes on his violin. For the commencement of another year We give each heart a word of cheer; Then we leave the old schoolroom today And each one goes his own new way. We have reached the foothills, — The mountains of real worth are now in view. 34-
