'a The Prologue
V ln 1911 as freshmen green
The Class of january, '15
Rang up the curtain on its high school life
i X- Within the Chiclet Factory's tow'ring walls
. Where rustling page, and whispers low, subdued,
, Scarce broke the quiet of the stately halls
Which six brief months before had rendered back
The echoes of a thund'ring industry.
e 'Twas there our drama had its source unique.
J There, there we worked and played, sorrowed, rejoiced,
l Lived, moved, and had our being. Week on week
, Slid by until we found ourselves advanced
To sophomores. The class was organized
s And class-pins then appeared. The girls, alone,
A party sponsored on All-Hallows' Eve
l'! When ghosts and warlocks flit the misty night
Wi And jostle in the murky air. Short months
Flew by on roseate wings, and with the dawn
. Of I9l3 came junior year,
-1 Renowned alike for scholarship and, too,
lx , Achievements great, whose shining, glorious like
None saw before, nor e'er will see again
. Fond memory! the happy, carefree days
' 'N When January 'IS as host
. Presided at Tut-Tut and Cafr Meow
5 What joy was ours when dim-lit corridors
2 Rang to the shouts of youths and maidens blithe
W, While teachers stern and sage smiled cynic'ly
, And Melancholv veiled his fleshless face
, Gathered his clammy cerements, and fled
5 - As flies a wraith of mist before the sun!
, . Our senior term! Olympian goddess, sing
. The achievements of that time when from th mass
5 Arose the scholars, poets, statesmen, seers
. The Thespians and literary minds
' Musicians artists all that serve to raise
, Mankind above the level of the beast
5 To rise in exaltation to the stars!
: ff Recall the Bowery Blow-out, pleasure's feast
I ! When old East High School's prosy face was 1
R, By coiling vines and cool wisteria!
' , Who can forget exciting moments when
1 Dicmtar held full sway, and from the stage
u . We made our hearers marvel at our art!
1 ,, And then it came-our senior final term
l -' But stay! here follow pages richly stored
X f" , ' With records of that time, complete, detailed
K .ll The curtain lifts, The Prologue's done, read on!
