J Class Poem The road which seemed so long has turned at last. We stand upon the hill which seemed so high ; Before us is spread out the world so vast. The time has come when we must say good-bye. The old road is behind us. (Do not sigh!) Our new road winds ahead, and in the light Its dust is turned to gold ; the ev ' nmg sky Now glows upon the altar of the night. The years will never dim the glory of this sight. Now we must shoulder well our pack of dreams. The road is not all paved with fairy gold : It leads through forests and by dismal streams Where still lie hidden beasts and robbers bold; And on the heights are ruins grim and old. ly But if we bear the lamp of love, the slime, I " The sorrow, and the pain can not with-hold That they are mile-stones on the road of time ; And thru their ugliness there shines the light sublime. — Sarah Marie Cool; ' 1 ; fe Class History Twas in the year 1921 that some of us, the world ' s most renowned seekers of knowledge, entered the portals of this stately old building of higher learning. In Room A- 1 , synonymous with a brand of oleomargarine that bears that same insignia, we first opened our eyes to view the grandeur and splendor of our new surroundings. ' Those were the good old days. " It was here we learned that upperclassmen had no more respect for eighth-graders than for those lowly Freshmen, and we were disre- garded, much to our mental and physical anguish. Time sped on, and, after the lapse of a year, we replaced the well-worn ranks of that low order of intelligence, the Freshman class. Our numbers increased, due to the incoming rural students. To fortify ourselves against the surging masses of upperclassmen, we organized into a regiment — some one hundred twenty strong — ably led by Rex Tucker. In the course of another year, the Sophomore class had dwindled to a motley crew of six or eight strugglers, who seemed determined to enter the confines of our class. So we, the erstwhile Freshmen, were duly elected to ascend the lofty heights of intelligence which the Sophomores had previously held. For a time Clifford Gus- tafson headed our troop, but upon his departure from Muscatine, Robert Zeidler became our captain. At this time one class, the Seniors, became so envious of our position that they decided to withdraw at the end of the term. Much w eeping and carrying-on took place, but w e, as sympathetic Sophomores, disguised our triumphant feelings with a mask of complete composure. Then the Juniors suddenly became Seniors, and w e, by unanimous approval, decided to fill the vacancy left by them. Tommy Dilley sat upon the throne of honor as president. We entertained the tw o basketball teams at a party, and the departing Seniors at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Speeches were offered by many, but accepted by few. The class deemed it a total success, because the affair had been financed by it. Many students became ill and failing in health from the effects of removing this capital from their aneamic wallets. It was in that year that a Chapter of the National Honor Society w as installed in our school. Four of us becanie charter members. Altogether, this year was the best that we as Juniors had witnessed. In September, anno domini 1925, we, as stately Seniors, returned to pay homage to the school that had just celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. No longer was the semi-intelligent look engraved upon our countenances. It had been replaced by one that bore semblance of hardship, misery and dignity — mostly dignity. Such a w orthy, noble and dignified group, needing a dignified leader, chose Paul Fischer as president. To relieve the strain of over-work, the annual Slouch Day was proclaimed. Due to the untiring ability and the endless caprice of the Senior Class, the event was one that surpassed all others heretofore given, or probably which ever will be given. Mr. Hayes was so overjoyed at our success that he let his emotions get the better of him, and accordingly gave us the entire afternoon off quite an uncommon occurrence. The class entertained the football squad at the Odd Fellows Hall. Several members of the class became so entranced by the music that they discarded their looks of innocence and took on the role of Arthur Murray. (For more particulars of this occasion, please see Harold Froehner or " Gus " Schauland). Again, due to the originality of the Senior class, the first All-School Party in fifteen years was a complete success. It w as during this year w e welcomed another honorary society into our midst. It was called the Athletic Scholarship Society, and had as members letter men with more than the common average in scholarship. Of course. Captain Sammy was a member. Then the time for the Junior-Senior Banquet again assailed us, this time given in our honor. We presented " The Varsity Coach " as our Senior Play and Commence- ment, too, drew near. Time flew by on airy wings, and at last, after four busy but happy years, we said good-bye to old M. H. S. and were received into outstretched hands of her alumni. I Class Will Know all men by these presents that we, the Class of 1926, of the Muscatine High School, City of Muscatine, State of Iowa, being according to our own judg- ment, and in the opinion of the faculty of said school, of sound and highly intelligent mmd. and about to pass on from this to another world, do hereby publish our last will and testament and declare all wills made previous to this null and void.

It is through them that we learn to mix in a social way, gain valuable instruction, and learn not to fear to face an audience. 1 hey are divided into the following classes: honorary, executive, literary, dra- matic, forensic, departmental, and musical. Having such a wide range of choice, each pupil is able to select the club which sponsors work on the subject in which he is especially interested. All are under the supervision and instruction of teachers in- terested in that line, so all are well planned and carried out. We are certain that our activities are becoming better, as pupils are no longer required to have membership in them, but do so of their own free will. We hope they will continue this improvement when we are no longer able to be members of them. 11 V Honor Society Top Row Norma Chase, Dorothy Striebel, Alpha Eraunwarth.
