CLASS PROPHECY ::
Ruth Godfrey 1
In ancient times, prophets
were accustomed to suspend
themselves on tripods above vol
canic fissures or by observing the
flights of birds and other natural
phenonoma were want to tell
forecoming events. Though I
have not that volcanic fissure
and am not evtn skilled in inter
preting avian actions, yet by
some peculiar workings of the
fates, I am chosen to tell the
future of each member of the
class of 1909. And should my
prophetic insight not please
every member of the class, I
mignt be destined to suner worse j
perils than ever any volcanic!
-fissure can produce. Even in
this straight I think of the words
of the poet:
So near is trrandure to our dust,
So near b God to man;
When duty vrhUper low "Thou
The youth replies. "I can!"
Some are bom great, some
achieve greatness, and some
have greatness thrust upon
them, yet each following his
own ambition and native pro
clivity, weaves out his own
future destiny. Realizing how
ever the necessity tor thorough
preparation and equipment for
future usefulness our class as a
unit, not content with a mere
whose modesty will not allow
t,n tn ,,. , ,
,,er to "vulge her name, the
i former being 5 feet
i and the latter 5 feet lH inches
; in height The Class as a whole
is 16 yards 1 foot 1 inch long and
,the average height is 3 feet 4 4-."
And now I am about to tread
on dangerous ground, the matter
of a!'?- If Closs were j"st
i one old man he would be a cen
jturyandtwo score years old.
'The Class baby, as to aire, is
easily Fee Esteb. The two eld

mers, but for fear of the conse
quences which might ensue, I
hesitate to divulge their names.
Thus reads the history of the

There is a tide in
men, but there is
no gulf stream setting forever
in the same direction." We are
anxious for further victories and
we intend to
"Hitch our wagon to a star,"
knowing that it is only through
personal effort the top most
round of the educational ladder
may be reached.
As Class Historian, I can but
wish my fellow classmates suc
cess. May it be said of them
that the world is better for their
having lived in it; may their
several lives prove a blessing
and benediction to their fellow

Lift the veil of the future and
note the change which Old
Father Time has wrought.
Twenty years has elapsed since
that memorable night in May in
the little white temple in Echo.
A magnificent edifice of brick
now stands in its place and the
chimes are heard from the
steeple, sounds which are sweet
in the eventide. Echo has grown
to a magnificent city with its
cool shady avenues and boule
vards. The hum of the factory
and the whir of the electric car
as it whisks up the well kept
streets awakes the echos of the
surrounding hills and the bowl
of the hungry canine is heard
no more as
"Curfew tolls the knell of parting
City life has forever banished
the plebian sounds of yore.
Music has charms however.
The world has given us a Wag
ner, a Straus, a Verdi, and a
Jacobiski, a Madam Patti, and
our class has given their part
to the worlds great musicians.
Stella M. McCullough, after
studying under the great masters
of America and the Old World,
now takes the world by storm,
by her beautiful voice and brilli
m wm.ce Maicoim and
ant songs. Her voice is r.eard
in all the great musical circle
and people come from far and
wide to hear our former class
mate, the American Night in
The business world needs un n
of ability, who are prompt nnd
always at their post of duty.
The former traits of our former
classmate, Frank Young, the
boy who through rain or srnne
braved the storms of winter in
order to keep his record of at
tendance and punctuality untarn
ished, whose traits are not lost
to him, as he runs his big Hank
Establishment. And there is a
rumor afloat that he has a hand
in shaping the financial policy of
our nation, the nation which now
stands on the top most round in
the worlds great system of fi
nance. And who, pray tell, is this
lady who may be seen alighting
from her auto-car and entering
the big Emphorium on the busy
corner. If it isn't our old friend,
Vina Houser!! And they say
that she presides over a big
house full of servants in her inter-urban
home. While other
foolish American girls fished for
foreign counts and Dukes with
empty titles, she did not fish at
all, and the result is that she
has a nice well furnished home
and a big true-hearted American.
Her home is the center of pleas
ure and social delight and no
queen ever presided over ner
subjects with more graceful hos
pitality than she.
Entering the big store on the
corner, you will find everything
modern and up to date. The
s moot he wellgroomed floorwalk
ers and the pretty salesladies
neat, and everything in the way
of equipment burnished to the
highest degree of brightness.
Everything moves along with
systematic accuracy, and well it
should, for over the door of the
neat little room designated as
office, you will see in large plain

Zena Houser has developed
into a stern, dignified school
ma'am. Matrimony has no
charms for her, she would rather
"teach the young idea to shoot"
and her "Forty little urchins"
think there is no one like Miss
Houser. One of her former
class mates however keep taking
lessons after hours and you can't
always tell what the result of
the electioneering may be. But
I have my doubts for as long as
"she spares the rod and spoils
the child" her heart will be
too full of love for her boys and
girls to take any outside party
into the firm.
Lawrence Malcolm, the Long
fellow of the class, though not a
long haired poet has turned out
to be a Civil Engineer. His long
spare frame has assumed vast
proportions since he has finally
finished the Panama Canal. His
next scheme is to survey a sub
ocean railway, and thus join the
American and European contin
ents with a rapid transit line.
But now the prophetic mists
become hazy and the air a som
ber stillness holds. But the
vision clears and I behold a mag
nigcent audience of expectant
people. And as the beautiful
strains of the gigantic pipe or
gan cease, a dignified young man,
bright of eye and elert of gesture
begins to speak. The whole
vast throng almost held their
breath as the great man stirs
them with his magnificent elo
quence. With fluent spech he
teaches the gospel of "love"
that great power which guides
the world. Who would ever
have thought that boy, Fee
Esteb, so full of roguish fun and
harmless mischief would have
developed into a preacher! But
thus "Old Father Time rings in
Another great legal light has
been added to the profession.
