THE CHIPMUNK for 1922
We, the solemn and prudent Seniors, hating to leave our Beloved High
School without some fond remembrance of the flower of its Student Body and
realizing how hard it will he next year for the school to continue in its usual
fashion without our inspiring and enlightening presences, and realizing how-
many wonderful accomplishments and tokens we have to bestow-, do hereby,
believing ourselves to be in a magnanimous and bountiful mood, bequeath,
bestow and endow- certain members of the Junior Class as follow-s:
I. Lewis Erbes. being of unsound mind and light head, do hereby w-ill
and bequeath my bow legs to Kenneth Walker; my hearty laugh to Agnes
Johnson; and my curling iron to Monk Morrison.
I. Peggy Jacobsen, believing myself to be a fit patient for the insane
asylum, do hereby will and bequeath my long black tresses to Mona Sevems;
my $1,000.00 pitching arm to Kuth Gadehon; and my queening ability to
I. Lewis Dixon, having maintained my mental equilibrium during the
past four years do hereby will and bequeath my ability to annex credits to
Mona Sevems; my superfluous avoirdupois to Carl Allen; and my ability
to play baseball to Doggie Dixon.
I, Lee Norah Roberts, believing myself to be old and feeble-minded do
hereby bequeath my ability to write examinations to Capitola Quigley; my
ability to take rapid dictation to Agnes Israelson; and my position on the
Executive Committee to Vera Jones.
I. Fletcher Walker, believing myself to be mentally, physically and
morally the cream of the 1922 class, and believing myself to be efficiently
deficient and effectively defective, wish to bequeath and bestow my superb
ability to control and coerce my fellow- students to Agnes Johnson; my
maidenly grace and beauty to Mildred Garrett; my fairy feet to Carl Allen:
and my singing voice to Monk Morrison.
I. Lillie Maud Birdsong, being in a most generous mood do bequeath
my superabundant accomplishments to Ruth Wilson: my esteemed social
position to Edith Williford and my abbreviated skirts to Joyce Ricketts.
Ten years have passed by with noiseless tread. Filled with a longing
desire to visit the mountains and breathe the invigorating air of the high
Sierras. I hie me away to Westwood w-here I spent my high school days
and was graduated with the class of 1922. The first sight of the old home
tow-n certainly reminds one that many changes can take place in the course
of ten years. The Red River Lumber Company has more than doubled
its size and a new modern structure has taken the place of the high school
I meet Miss Ball, my class teacher, who is now married to the speediest
stenographer in the United States and is spending a year of rest and recupera-
tion in Westwood. She invites me to her home where she tells me about the
Peggy is now married to Lewis Erbes. They are living on a farm
near Red Bluff raising Erbes and oranges.
