In the dim of twilight,
Singing soft and low,
There sits she so patiently,
Rocking to and fro.
It is Mother, with those kindly eyes
And hair as white as snow,
Which mingles with the moonlight,
When her head is bowed just so.
Neither roses, violets. nor lilies,
Can such pleasures ever bestow,
As the lady in the twilight
Singing soft and low.

and gold and dedicated to our Principal, N. W.
Chaifee. In 1926, it Was cream with the school
sketched in red, and was dedicated in loving
memory of Mrs. N. W. Cha:ffee,who died Sep-

purple initials, and in memory of Miss Jessie
Loomis, who died August 13, 1926. Our 1928

was gold with a sketch of the school framed in
gold, and was dedicated to the ninth graders of
the school. The 1933 issue Was White with red
border, with the American Hag in the center,
and was dedicated to our esteemed principals
