Name Nickname Society Position Ambition - Favorite Saying
John Hubert Melrose - Ezra 26 Amphictyon left forward, Capt To be good looking Get out of the way, Ive got to spit ΰ
Hubert is like the first blush of spring, so fresh, you know.
Allan Jenkins Al, 26 Amphictyon Center Champion long sleeper You -------- ΰ
Allan had a little Ford;
It was run by oils and greases;
He ran into a great big house
And smashed it all to pieces.
Edward H. Case Ed, 25 Amphictyon
right forward To cut
Ed does your mother know
Her little boy flirts and cusses so?
And doesnt Amy even care
When you chat with Lizzie Sayer
Chelson E. Sayer Chels, 25 Athenian right guard To graduate Lets go fishing ΰ
Chelsons uncle had a farm
And farms are very healthy;
Chelson trapped some muskrats
Which made him very wealthy.
He also had a fight;
His father wouldnt give him any gas,
So he couldnt make up that night.
Kenneth Smith Smitty, 26 Athenian Forward To be Streeters hired girl Its all right with me ΰ
Smitty had a very nice girl;
She was tall, and thin and fair.
Once in a while, she fooled him,
And had a date with Bear
Thomas J. Whitney Jeff, 27 Guard To teach Dolly Moore to dance Learned some new steps last night ΰ
Jeff is our fashion model,
For he sets the pace in cloths;
And where he gets his dance steps,
Im sure nobody knows.
Howard Jenkins Bear, 27 Amphictyon Forward To be a big, bold man You milk the cow tonight ΰ
Bear is his mammas younger son,
His complexion is supreme;
The girls wonder what he uses,
Maybe Woodburys facial cream.
Arthur B. Canfield Art, 25 Amphictyon Manager To write to all the girls in school Senior meetin tonight ΰ
Artie had an Amphictyon pin,
He liked it very well;
Marian had a Minerva pin, and
The rest is too sad to relate.
Coach William I. Graf Beano Mens
P.T. Class To teach the
Prof. went home in a car that was tricky,
And on his journey back hit a drift going sixty;
Now dont get excited, or dont get misled,
He stayed there all night, in snow to his head.

The Senior Class
As youre glancing thru these pages,
Stop you here and mark you well
For altho Im not a poet,
A famous history Ill tell.
The members of the Senior class
Have talent and brains and looks,
And when the lists are posted
Youll see they excel in books.
Art Canfield is the president,
With his wavy auburn locks.
Watch him flirt with the other girls
And youll get an awful shock.
While Richard stays in
(They passed us home-town sweeties up
Ere we could throw them down)
Dyg takes the cake in Latin,
And vamping young brothers too;
Marian Young keeps
And gum! How does she chew!
Susan Murrays very witty,
Paulie sure can dance;
Alison likes a junior boy,
And they quarrel at every chance.
Zelda is a cute little actress;
Margaret Herring has some rep;
Helen Jepson is our orator;
Mildred Perrin has the pep.
Alice Kane has an eye for baskets
And everyone counted two;
We dont blame her, do you?
Ann stands for Minerva,
Shes a comely little lass;
Chelson Sayer may again stand
In the midst of a succeeding Senior class.
Ed Case is surely the school sheik,
When he appears the girls all scream.
Murray Raven always studies hard
And doesnt play or shirk or dream.
Roland Ritchie has a little car
He takes all the Juniors out;
Harry Corbins on a diet
For he thinks he may get stout.
Helen Smith is growing thinner.
And the reason I cant tell;
Elizabeth Sayer also graces the class
But she likes the boys too well.
Everett Latham drives a
He lives out on a farm,
But he visits town so often
That he does the state road harm.
Harold Towlson is a studius lad,
His complexion is supreme;
Emory Laidlaw loves the ladies
Now isnt that a scream?
Bob Aldrich is a worthy member,
Does the kindergarten work,
He does his work exceedingly well
And has never been known to shirk.
A. Richardson studies very hard
And is a shy young miss;
Charlie Jones is a naughty boy,
Always looking for a kiss.
Helen Dailey cuts up in Oral English,
Shes very funny and short;
Of course this annoys Miss ONeil,
But to the rest of the class its a good sport.
There are others, too numerous to mention,
Fifty eight of all dimensions.
Youll admit as you pass, that the senior class
Is the greatest of all inventions.
