One day not very long ago,
Wade Smith did show his pep;
A bum named "Tub" did want to show
When he waded out, and what was the depth.
The answer he did not give to him,
This fixed the imprudent dub,
For he spit out with a terrible bim
And waded pretty deep in "Tub."
A frail little maid called Jewel Janes
Does want like maids of old,
Far different from the 20th century dame,
To be worth her weight in gold.
Nacmi and Faye, they're never apart
I've learned by observation;
I asked them why they were so smart;
They say: "It's concentration."
Frank Pryne is popular, they say-
He's the class president-
When the Juniors had their day
He on a journey went.
Do you know Evelyn Abshear or not
She wears her hair down her back;
She is so little that she looks like the Senior Mascot,

But Charles Haskell says-you're sure t
Be'niece Campbell, I fain would sing,
Has the brains of an old cat;
She masters Latin and, By Jing,

But if thoughtful eyes show ability
He surpasses all the rest.
To many good qualities of Emma Jean
I could have written a poem-
She has a sweetie Eugene
And she says, "You ought to know him."
"I wish you weren't taller than I am, dear,"
A lover once said to Louise.
She looks down and just sneers,
"I'm just six feet, three, if you please."
And now I must close this little ditty
With one of whom we are all proud;
She is no other than Miss Ruth Priddy,
She can make more noise than a crowd.
