REUNION CENTRAL

NEW MEMBER REGISTRATION

TO THE SENIOR CLASS

To the alumni of Lane-Make Way!  - To the undergraduates-Goodbye! - To the Seniors-Congratulations!
   That is what the commencement speech says in effect, and that is the moment for which we have all waited for four years. 
   You can all remember when you were freshmen, but do you recall the idiotic, ignorant things you did, or the supposedly supreme moment of your life, when you received a certificate, or got the highest mark in the class?
   In your Sophomore year, you felt you knew all about it. The hallways were no longer confusing when you knew the room numbers. You had learned by now where the cafeteria and locker rooms were, and you considered first and second termers "freshies."
   Fifth, sixth and seventh terms were going by very fast, now. You waited with anticipation for your promotion into eighth term, and your seniority in the school. You no longer even looked at lower termers, no less considered speaking to them.
   Then came the summer vacation, and the parties and gatherings that go along with it, but in the background was the undercurrent of excitement and joy that is a part of being a Senior.
   When you came back to school this September, you were grateful to all those who were making possible your achievement, whoever they might be, and then that sober moment was lost in the reality of Senior pins, the dances, the class skits, costumes for Senior day, and the Prom.
   These precious things you will always remember when you look at your school ring, or your pictures, or your yearbook. This book is your link to the past, to the unforgettable joys, the lingering memories of the happiest year of your life.
   On these leaves are pictures of your friends and celebrities, poems, odes, and various pieces of literature.
   You are leaving your childhood, now, with its irresponsibility, for the questionable future with its unforeseen goals, but this book, an invaluable remembrance, will always bring you back.
