"NOTHING GREAT IS LIGHTLY WON"
Lilac and White
Kuoli winter we'd go Imok to school
With friends once more to In .
Knoh summer we’d again return
To our cottage nt tlie sea.
Knoli day we’d swim and watoli the ships
The host of pals were we.
Day in. «lay out. we’d spend the time
In pleasure nt the sea.
Once while lying on tin sand
Way up upon a hill.
I gazed upon that sea of life
So deep, and large, ami still.
A raft was floating near the shore:
A distant yacht was seen.
And men within a fishing boat
Were rowing in-helween.
Must look out there.” 1 said to Jack.
“That raft, that boat, that yacht;
Ami now compare that sight with life—
It makes a perfect plot.
“In one more year we graduate.
That s« a of life we face.
We work until we earn our raft.
Then enter in the race.
llut Jack. it's very sad to say
That when you stop to think.
Some don't work to earn their raft
But start to swim—and sink.
“Now on our raft we battle odds
I he waves to keep afloat.
Through honest effort, rowing har«l.
We transfer t« our lx at.
“And onward row with sweated brow;
Forget the strength we lack;
Keep on saying o’er and o’er,
‘I must keep going. I won’t turn Imc
“And still our courage spurs us on
But now those years have pass«Ml.
For we have been rewarded—yes.
We’ve earned our yacht at last.
“We swiftly forward cruise along.
Our voyage near an end.
Soon we’ll be retired
In that harbor ’round the bend.
“We’ve made it! Victory now is ours!
With happy shouts we cry
When we turn the bend and see
Our harbor drawing nigh.
“We enter through the narrow gate
Where few have entered through.
Hear Miss America proclaim,
‘Welcome, son. I’m proiul of you. ”

pupe twelve Champs in Review I sat at my desk in the Study Hall vainly trying to master the intricacies of American Government. Outside, the day was warm. The birds were singing. Just a few short weeks and my school days at dear old S. H. S. would be over. How time does fly! Slowly the names of Roosevelt, Hopkins, Ickes, the New Deal, the unbalanced budget faded from my mind. Into my mind flashed the headline of the first CARDINAL of the fall of 19.55. “Largest Class in History of School,” that headline ran. A record that was not to be broken until the present class of Freshmen entered last fall. Truly an unusual class. Twenty-seven Freshies: Leroy Baugher, Merrial Bodjack, James Carr, Myron Cupp, Rayella Davis, Vera Essig, Clara Friesl, Ewalt Fausak, Bernice Gaul, Ann Krajacic, Frank Klackle, Rae Marie Mongreig, Margaret Maffei. Margaret Ann Ott, Junior Pallas, Jane Quardokus, Walter Raab, LaVerne Reimer, Art Rochau, Frieda Schulz, Clara Schulz, Ella Schulz, Irene Siewert, Lenord Siewert, Oliver Siewert, and Esther Spitzer. That first class meeting! How big we felt to think we were in high school at last. We elected LaVerne Reimer as our first President. Rayella Davis was elected Vice President, and Myron Cupp, Secretary-treasure!. Mr. Shearer. Mrs. Myers, Miss Muskin, and Miss Larkin made up our faculty. Of course we had to be initiated. And then there were the various class parties, general school parties, and the other activities of a busy year. So our first year rolled right along, ending with a picnic at Indian Lake. The next year, returning as Sophomores, found two new faces among us, Frank Posch and Donald Shoemaker. Ward Griffendorf, Clara Friesl, Clara Schultz and Leroy Baugher had left us, leaving twenty-six. One of our first acts was to call a class meeting to elect our officers for the ensu- ing year. James Carr became our President, Vera Essig, Vice President, and Rae Marie Mongreig, Secretary-treasurer. Now the tables were turned. We were Sophomores, and it was our turn to haze the lowly Freshmen. A Scavenger Hunt was organized, with the Freshies the goats. Then there was the World History Class trip to Chicago, in which the entire class participated. Among the places that will live in our memories are the Field Museum and the Art Institute. Of course there were the usual class parties and gen- eral school functions. A change in our faculty had also taken place. Mrs. Jefferis had joined us. and Miss Muskin had departed. The year closed with the usual picnic at the usual place, Indian Lake. Returning for our third year, we were prouder still. And we had a right to be. For were we not upperclassmen? Frank Posch, Donald Shoemaker and Jane Quar- dokus were missing when the roll was called. Edna Kornow came to fill one of the places, leaving us with twenty-four to start our Junior year. A class meeting was called to select our officers for the year. Vera Essig became our President. Walter Raab became Vice President, and LaVerne Reimer, Secretary- treasurer. Early in the fall we became the proud owners of class rings, ordered from the Herff-Jones Company of Indianapolis, Ind'ana. In the spring, the Junior play, “Spooky Tavern,” was presented to a large audi- ence. The cast ir.c'uded Merrial Bodjack, Myron Cupp. Junior Pallas. Vera Essig. Ann Krajacic, Lenord Siewert, Frank Klackle, Irene Siewert, Oliver Siewert, and Walter Raab. The Junior-Senior dance will linger in our memories for some time to come. Two new faces were present in our faculty, Mrs. Travis and Mr. Hughes. We closed an eventful year with a picnic at Indian Lake. Continued on pope .id

It has been the habit, custom, and
annual practice for ever and ever so
long, for the Senior Class in the days
preceding its demise to bequeath to the
underclassmen its most precious,
prized, fantastic, stupendous, inexpli-
cable, superannuated, also extempora-
neous possessions, provided that certain
conditions are minutely upheld upon
receiving said possession. These be-
longings are not given to classes as a
whole, but to individuals who it is be-
lieved will uphold the sacred traditions
to the very best of their ability.
May it be understood that upon re-
ceiving these most delinquent, inconse-
quential, infrequent, inconsistent en-
dowments the recipients will endeavor
to uphold to the best of their ability
the following conditions: (1) upon en-
tering Mr. Shearer’s illustrious domain,
to fall quickly and quietly asleep to the
best of their ability; (2) on falling over
the threshold of Mrs. Myers' sanctum,
to continue chewing gum as vigor-
ously as possible; (3) to do whatever
else their good judgment requests them
and that they believe would be in di-
rect accordance with our best wishes.
Therefore, we declare this to be our
last will and testament in the manner
First, we will and direct that all our
just debts and graduation expenses be
paid in full.
Second, we give, devise, and be-
Our section of seats in the assem-
bly hall to the Juniors.

of May, in the year one thousand nine
hundred and thirty-nine.
