POEM In the month of December, of this year, A classmate, Alice Hansen, moved away from here. But Alice is a girl we can’t forget, And her absence is something we all regret. The hardest poem for me to write, Is about a girl whose hair is light. She’s not much of a poet, as you can see, Oh yes, you guessed it, it’s only me. Our shortest girl is five feet three, And in her studies she’s smart as can be. Her name is Hazel and she’s rather blonde, But who’s that boy of whom she’s fond? Walter Mak, our class Romeo, Keeps all the girls on the go. Anne always greets him with a happy “hello,” Now what are her intentions? Does anyone know? We inherited Bertha from the Junior Class, And we’re proud to claim this brilliant lass. She deserves to be praised for the grades she’s made, And to lead the line in the honor parade. There’s one who’s cheery laughter brightens the day, When she’s around, skies are never gray. Her first name is Florence, her last name you know. She makes many friends wherever she goes. Mr. Stephens sponsors our class, It would never do to let him pass. We like him a lot, and why shouldn’t we? He’s everything we want a teacher to be. And now as we leave good old DeMotte High. We take one more look and utter a sigh. So many fond memories we now can recall. But now we’ll just say, “goodbye one and all.”

S E N To write a poem is a task for me. For I’m not a poet as you can plainly see. But I’ll do my best to describe our class to you, And I hope you won’t be bored before you ' ve read this through. The first of our class is Anne Klip, And to everyone I’ll give this tip; She’s popular and full of fun, But wait ! She’s not the only one. Next on the list is Cordelia Kooy, She’s left her heart with a Senior boy. (?) She’d make a fine wife for some young lad, For a better seamstress couldn’t be had. Then comes the treasurer who collects the money, Dale’s his name but who’s his honey? When it comes to Civics he’s not so dumb. And we value him greatly as our school chum. Alice Sytsma is a girl you know. In our Girl’s chorus she sings alto. She’s tall, slender, and somewhat shy, And seems to think Civics is rather dry. Then comes Bernice who’s rather tall, When it comes to studying she beats us all. She’s quite attractive and a medium blonde, Of her our class is very fond. Oh, here comes another, Delpha’s her name, As a dress designer she hopes to find fame. She serves our group as a president, And Ted is the name of her favorite gent. Next is William, we call him “Bill” A better tonic than any pill, A number of girls have found that it’s true. So — naturally his lady-friends aren’t so few.

SENIOR WILL — Ruth Moolenaar wills her glasses to Carolyn Bass. Now with two pairs of glasses, Carolyn can see all the boys Ruth overlooked. — Delpha Heimlich wills her expanded vocabulary to John Max and Bernard Vander Molen. May they make as much use of it as Delpha has. — Cordelia Kooy wills her marvelous home cooking talent to Lois Lagaveen. May she reach a man’s heart through his stomach as Cordelia did. — Bertha Vander Molen wills her ability to type to Dick Evans. Alay he reach the high degree of success that Bertha attained. — Dale Schwanke leaves his mannerly ways to Charlie Streveler. May he appreciate something good when he gets it. — Bernice Vander Ploeg wills her ability to sing loudly to Mary Lou Ewart. Let’s hope you hear more of Mary Lou’s singing that we did of Bernice’s. — Alice Svtsma wills a “steady” to Boh Anderson. Bob, if you find a good one, hold onto her ! — Hazel Punter wills her conscientious studying to Steve Terpstra. Here’s hoping you get as good grades in your Senior year as Hazel did. - — Walter Mak wills his height to Sig Boezeman and Paul Hoffman. Well, hoys, I hope you won’t have as many neck-aches as I have had. — Florence Hoffman wills her bright sayings to Sam Kingma. May we hear from him as often as we did from Florence. — Anne Klip wills her attractiveness to Mary Jane White. May you have as many friends as Anne has had. — Bill Hoffman wills his “gentleness” and “honeyed persuasion” to Don Bailey and Gerrit Van Kepple. Here’s hoping vou have more success than Bill had. — To the school as a whole we will a larger senior class, but then valuable things are sometimes wrapped up in small packages. TO THE TEACHERS — To Mr. Ewart — A set of Venetian blinds for the Civics room. — To Mr. Stephens — A state championship basketball team, a good football team too. — To Mrs. Murphy — An assembly that keeps quiet and studies. — To Miss Venable — Senior students who know their Math. — To Mrs. Rainwater — A class of boys who know how to sing. — To Mrs. Cook — A fruit and vegetable and meat market, so that she can get her vitamins daily. — To Air. Wurzburger — Agriculture boys who come to class.
