A Junior Class Meeting

United, we stand;

Boys vs. girls

Divided, we fall;

In battle array;

Some half agree

Sponsors aghast

And some don't at all.

In the midst of the fray;

Two parties this year

Gone peace and harmony,

Are all we have had,

Mutiny reigns!

Because some got peeved,

Oh, grant us, we pray,

And others were mad.

Compensation for pains!

As gay Sophomores we now appear,
Though Freshmen green were we last year.
Now, one by one, we'll enumerate,
And prophesy each various fate.

Marie, as cook, will do it well;
Mark, the preacher, will save us from -
Halley the mascot of the class;
Harriet a very beautiful lass;

Daisy, from Archer, has made her debut;
Arthur Bonness came from there too;
The Widman farmers and farmerette, -
Alta, whom you surely have met;

Mary Pickford II Goldie will be;
Paul S. on the stage we too shall see;
Esther R. a saxaphone star to come,
Accompanied by Francis on the drum;

Carl and Donald, geometry stars;
Florian, astronomer, will study of Mars;
Fred and Ted are chums of old;
Helen a winning vamp so bold;

Orville, vamped by Helen, admits he bit;
And Ferne, who can't quite make a hit;

Eva, who some day may change her name;
Beth, who has such literary fame;

Mable possesses such winning eyes;
Gladys, who for love forever sighs;
The other Gladys we can't leave out,
In society heard so much about;

Three Harolds we have in our famous class, -
Pat, who for President will ever pass,
Art R., the founder of "Go-easy- and-slow;"
And Abbie, who never had a beau;

Ralph our 200-lb. foot-ball guard;
Dick, who last year in Latin starred;
Esther W. and Viola, lasses so shy,
Notice all young men that ever pass by;

What Dorothy, the Ruths and Grace are to be,
We all will have to wait and see;
Irene and Leone, each small in size,
Will both reach fame before either dies;

Edna Z., the English teacher's pet;
Paul J., of whom we know nothing yet;
Clarence we possibly can't leave out, -
Is always following Daisy about. - R. B. D.

The High School Play

 

     "Ching-a-ling" was presented at the Martha-Ellen Auditorium on April 8th, 1920. This play was a highly amusing comedy, staged by a cast of characters picked from the whole high school. The curtain rises on a "bachelor kitchen" scene, with Ching as chief actor, burning the "blacon and eggs." The two colonels have much animosity toward each other, but finally become fast friends. Bob and Marjorie cleverly "hoodwink" their fathers. Mrs. Carroll, who in former days had been the "bone of contention" between the colonels, is claimed by Richard Byrd. Ned, a very forgetful, good-looking chap, elopes with Julia Carroll. "Skinny" Lawyer Baskom helps out the plot with his sound advice. The whole comedy proves that youth will have its way.
