WE GRAVE AND REVEREND SENTORS
We grave and reverend Seniors,
Who thought the years so slow
We spent in acquisition
Of things we had to know,
Are filled with wild excitement,
At last the goal is won.
We gaze in admiration
Upon the work we've done.
The courses we have taken,
The stiff exams. we've passed
Would indicate intelligenceg
With wonder we're aghast.
The faculty, they tell us,
Are equally surprised,
For when they found us passing
They scarce believed their eyes.
Perhaps it was their wisdom
That dragged us up the grade,
And so we're saying, "Thank you,"
For good advice and aid.
How often we have counted
The time till holidays,
And wished the hours were shorter
In education's ways!
But now we may discover
What old folks say is true:
Life's working day is lengthy,
And holidays are few.
Still armed with high endeavor
We'll meet fate with a smile
And strive with hearts undaunted,
Remembering the while
That life, despite misfortune,
Is but adventure gay,
And Death's friend that gives us
A last long holiday.

It is the year of 1990. Bob Parrish and I, Sue Morrison are leaving
home to sail over the seas as missionaries to the heathen Chinese.
As we travel through the United States on our way to meet our ship,
we meet many of our old friends from Alrno High.
We stop to make a phone call and find the telephone operators to be
Joyce Bizzle and Shirley Lovett, two of our classmates. We had lunch
with the girls and they told us that Myrtle Mathis is mistress of an orphans
home in the same city.
When we got on our plane at San Francisco who do you think was pi-
lot? None other than our old classmate Donald "Myrt" Burkeen. As we
talked with Donald he told us that Larry "Birdbrain" Woodall and Daniel
the "Broken-nosed reindeer" Pritchett were the leading stars on the
When our plane landed in Honolulu we saw a familiar looking fellow
and it was Durward "Dagwood" Bennett. Durward told us that he was a
private detective and that Robert Henderson had married the famous
Hawaiian dancer Sue Parrish.
As we continued ourjourney, Bob took a cold and went to the hospital
for medicine and found the elevator girl to be Jeanetta Herndon. Jean-
etta told Bob that Jeannene Nichols and her husband had been trying to
inventachewing gum that would not pop. Jeanetta also said that Maudie
Steen and her husband were living in Alaska with their twin boys and old
pet hen. .
When we arrived in Singapore we found Sid Jobs plowing rice with a
water buffalo. Sid told us that Barbara Edmonds was operating abeauty
shop in the city and that she had developed a formula for curling the toe
We went into a large restaurant to eat. We found the owner to be
Oretha Witty and her chief cook to be Pat Johnston. She says the only
trouble that she has with Pat is that he sleeps while he cooks. While we
are eating we notice a newspaper by us, and upon glancing at it, we see
that the President of the United States is having a vacation down on his
farm in Almo, Ky. The President of the United States is none other than
"Herman Herndon" a former class mate.
As we leave Singapore on the last lap of our journey, we notice that
the world's heavy weight rice eating contest is coming up soon between
World's Champion Shirley Turner and Challenger Marjorie Wilkinson,
two more of our old class mates.
As Bob and I thought of the days gone by, we wondered what the next
thirty-five years would bring, and we had lots to talk about.
