1916 CLASS DAY CLASS POEM
By Margaret Settle, 16 and F. D. Burgess, 16


Never was class so well favored as ours is,
Each of us loyal and steadfast and true,
Winning and eagerly wearing our laurels,
Always with pride, yet with modesty, too.
Rich thy reward, Alma Mater, for labor!
Keen the delights thou has offered us, too!

High was our goal and we struggled to reach it,
Inherent courage we brought to the task;
Great is the debt that we owe to teachers;
Helpful and earnest and kind to the last.

Some of us, now, will go far, Alma Mater,
Called by the challenging work of the world;
Here or away we shall cherish thy teaching,
Order our lives by the lessons we've learned,
One thought shall bind us all closely together,
Love for thee, deep in our hearts still impearled.


NEWARK'S TRIBUTE TO '65
By Paul Stevens '16


May 30, 1916, dawned gray and cloudy, but at 8:15, the remaining members of the Vosburg Post of the Grand Army of the Republic, few in number, assembled at the I. O. O. F. Hall.

When all the comrades had taken their places in the automobiles provided for them, the cars lined up behind the band in Union Street. Behind these came the Board of Trustees in an automobile, the Woman's Relief Corps and the eighth grade children in beautifully decorated trucks. Five hundred grade children, from the seventh to the first grades, inclusive, marched next in order, and the Newark Fire Department brought up the rear.

Every automobile and truck was gorgeous with its flowers and flags and each school child carried a flag.

As the parade stretched out along the new pavement on North Main Street, reaching from the Canal bridge to the entrance of the Cemetery, it was a sight worth seeing.

The entire assemblage arrived at the cemetery where the ceremonies were conducted by Commander Brown, and Mr. Feary of the Episcopal church, before the clouds broke open and a non-too-gentle rain set in to last until after the parade had marched home again.

But as true soldiers of '65 and '16 the veterans and school children marched on in good order through the rain to the Opera House where the children forgot their wet garments in the joys of ice cream and "Movies".
