Fool’-; Burial.
If you had waited, foolish 'ovc to
die, .
I would have fetched fine mourning
from the town:
Rich words, and splendid bitterness
to lie
About your head in thick funersl
crown.
There had been dusky plumes of old
desire
And for your body’s ease a silken
shroud
Of stuff called sacrifice, that tact.
admire^—
That were a death to make a iO.Tr
proud,
The world will never know you
walked, a king.
Into my heart no longer tree to
dare;
V bent to do your will in everything
And heaped up tribute that would
make you fair.
Where did you spend the treasure
that I gave,
To He all naked In a beggar’s grave.

Seniors Making A
Record At Fallstoni
_ )
Go Four Months Without an \b- j
sence and Trying to ( arrv
Record to End of School
<Special to The Star '
Fallston, Mar. 17,—When this goes
Into print, the senior class of Fall''
ton High school will have completed
its fourth consecutive month with
out an absence. There are fourteen
members in the group which makes
this record worthier than it would
be if the group were a very email
, one. After coming so close to a per
i feet record the first two months* the
class seized upon the Idea of making
a remarkable record. The goal is to
finish the school year with perfect
records for sis consecutive months
there having but five absences
charged against the whole group for
I the entire year. Should the goal be
i reached the atendance for the y car
l would be 99.78 percent.
The class of 1931 has petit a
[smooth running organization. Most,
of the petty troubles that usually
beset such groups have been worked
out peaceably in the interests of the
whole group, it tne same practices
are carried over into life, this small
unit will add something of -tablll
zation to the social unit in which It
will live and work.
Wild Ginger is the title of a play
to be given by the class of 1931 in
the near future. The title is snappy;
the plot is snappy; watch lor Inter
announcements.
Commencement exercises will be
held in the auditorium May 18, at
8 p. m. The program Is not com
plete as yet.
The class roll follows;
Wllltnm A. Clay, Clms D. Hotel,
Paul Hord, Claude Ross. >ecretary.;
Henry S. Falls, treasurer, Edwin
Williams. Thomas w. Wilson. Zora
S. Boggs, president. Nellie P. V. 1'
llams, Zellle M. Williams, Alma M
Wright, Connie V. Wright, vice
persident. F. Edna Wright, valedic
torian,'Viola Wright.
More will be heard of this group
if that attendance goal is reached
The principal treated twice at the
end of two months, and is now be
hind with two others. He is in n >cd
of help, but will not let such a fine
effort go without its reward If no
help comes. He hereby notifies the
patrons of Fallston high school that
assistance in recognizing the attain
ment of this class will be welcome.
