I found it in an old school book,
This remnant of a scented flower.)
The petals scattered to and fro
Like many a precious hour.
The time is just like yesterday,
E'en though the book is worn.
The brown of time invites decay
Of petals, leaf and thorn.
1 gather all the fragments up
And form a rose bud here in part
That represents the old class flower,
That grows forever in my heart.
And when I close my eyes to sleep.
The sleep I do not understand.
I trust that some true friend shall place
A rose bud in my hand.
A friend that symbols all the rest
That I once learned to love and know
To be among the very best
That God could e're bestow.

"Hello, Clark! Is Jones coming for commencement week?"
"Yes, he'll be here tomorrow for the '12s exercises. He was
here at school three years ago, and entered with the '12s. I'm
gojng to show him around and introduce him to all his old
friends. Don't suppose he'll know them all after being away
for three years. You know, students do change here from the
time they enter school till they graduate. I've seen some of
the biggest rubes come up here and by the time they graduate
their own mother wouldn't know them, if she hadn't seen them
for four years."
"Why, there's — oh, gee! there's the bell, and I'll have to go.
I'll see you at the exercises tomorrow."
College hall was filled when Clark and his friend Jones came
in. All the '12s H. S. were seated on the rostrum. The Pres-
ident arose and began his flowery address.
"Say, Clark, who's that?"
"Well, Jones, I thought you'd remember Briant Stringham.
He's the President of the class and one of the classy fellows
of the school."
"Come, now, you don't mean that that's Bri Stringham. Why,
I used to know him when he first came to school. He had a
big baby face and couldn't talk about anything but sheep. His
5 5 arms used to swing a foot out of his coat sleeves, and his trou-
sers were high water style. Oh, say, and he used to wear a big
red tie and a blue shirt."
"He certainly has straightened out to graduate President of
"Who did you say the Vice-President was?"
"Um, her — Well — a form more fair, a face more sweet, never
hath it been my lot to meet. Since I saw her before. The first
day she came to school, I won't forget soon. She had a big
flat bow of pink ribbon that covered the back of her head, and
a bright red dress, just below her knees, and you know that
innocent look in her baby blue eyes and her loving smile. She
had a catalogue in her hand and an entrance card in the other,
hunting for the Dean of the College."
"Is that a Prep among the Fourth Years?"
"Fred Taylor? Well, he hasn't improved the race much in
size. He used to be the mascot for the First Years. Suppose
he is as enthusiastic about yellow headed girls as ever. Had to
have a contrast, he said."
"Say, that's a swell girl at the piano. She must have entered
since I left."
"Merline Roylance ! Well, that's not so hard to believe as the
rest. We all said she would make a musician when she used
to dance the barn dance on the pavement on the way to school
and be late for English."
"That's Erma Fletcher over there, and Elfie Bean. They had
to get some one to write jokes about them and get them
printed in the White and Blue, so they would become popular
with the basket ball boys. You know all the girls are foolish
over the basket ball boys. I guess it's their uniforms. I was
at a picture show the other night and heard a '12 girl say: 'Oh,
those dear soldiers; I don't blame a girl for falling in love with
them ; they have such cute uniforms."
"Who's that rosy cheeked boy?"
"Well, that doesn't look like Clarence Woods to me. He was
a mate for Bri Stringham when he entered school. Clarence
didn't need shortening and he had a pair of socks his mother
knit striped with red and green. He always liked the girls and
thought he would make a good domestic science teacher. He
used to carry the dishes for them, fix tables, wash dishes, until
Miss Ward thought he was about the handiest boy in school.
If we ever had any punch at the parties he had to dip. From
the bunch of girls he's sitting among, I should judge he was
"I guess you remember Hazel Macdonald?"
"Well, I guess yes; she will never be whiter when she is dead
than she was the day she entered this school. You know she
was just a little seedy country kid — never had been away from
her mother before. After registering for one and a half units,
told President Brimhall she did not care to take devotional be-
cause she had such a heavy course already. After paying her
tuition she went up to Janitor Higgs, showed him her admit
card and asked where in the building she would find the number
of her room — 560."
"Who's that fellow on the end of the first row?"
"I should think you would remember that Chancy Baird."
"I thought I would, too, but wonders will happen. Chancy and
I entered school the same day. I run on to him in the hall
with his hat held fast in both hands. We were both frightened
to death, and decided to hunt the President's office together.
I grabbed hold of his hand and we went in. President Brim-
hall looked us over from under his spectacles and said, 'Well,
young men, what do you want to take?'
" 'Theology, please,' said Chance. President Brimhall has con-
sidered him a good boy ever since."

The Twelve !■ a man who worked for years to get hours, and then «elt weak

history. In as much as he was a goat w^lth a sheep's skin. And unhappily, In
Jast such proportion as he failed to qualify for the sheepskin, the more certain
he was to qualify for the Koat.
The Twelve worked for what he grot, but he didn't always get what he worked
for. It depended on what the Faculty thought, and heaven knows what they
depended on for their thinking:.
The 12 w^ent out Into the cruel world, and he left behind him his grlrl and his
creditors. The former promised to write often, and the latter kept the promise.
Somebody else usually kept the grlrl. He found that the unappreclative world
turned its back on him, and he was left to shift for himself. His treasured
acacomplishments of student days, ranging; from the basket ball squad to the
dancing club or the debating team, seemed scarcely to supply him with those
credentials which are sought by grrouchy employers of labor. Before the 12
graduated, he was worried as to whether to accept the position of a bank
cashier or a district attorney, but no such problems ever disturb him after
he departed from his Alma Mater. His chief worry then was that he couldr't
get a good job shoveling snow in July or August.
And yet, after all, it was a grreat four years. The 12 can afford to be retrospec-

PRES. G. H. BRIMALL
President Brimhall has indeed been a FRIEND and FATHER
to us during the few brief but happy years that he has been our
guide and inspiration thru High School. As we have endeav-
ored to cUmb a Httle higher up the scale of intelligence and
culture he has always freely given us counsel that we could not
have received from any other source. We feel that we shall
always be deeply indebted to him for the spiritual and intel-
lectual gems that he has strewn in our lives. It is our sincere
prayer that thru his coming years he may have that greatest
of all joys which comes from realizing that he has been a
BENEFACTOR to his fellowmen.
©i)os;e Wo Wf^om Wt (©be iWucf)
To our teachers who have helped and encouraged us to
make the best use of our opportunities while at school.
Your influence, dear teachers, has made us realize the
necessity of an aim in life.
We have been made to feel with the poet,
"Live for something, have a purpose.
And that purpose keep in view.
Sailing like a helmless vessel,
Thou canst ne'er to self be true,
Half the wrecks that strew life's ocean.
If a star had been their guide
Might have now been rowing safely.
But they drifted with the tide."
May we as members of the class of 1912 H. S. show our
sincere gratitude and appreciation to you our worthy
teachers for your earnest, untiring efforts, by endeavoring
to bless humanity as we go through life with that which
you have so nobly helped us to gain.
The gentle rays of springtime's sun
Fall on his tired but happy brow.
He knows at last the goal is won —
Hard was the fight; what cares he now,
The weary years of toil are o'er,
And labor done, if sacrifice
Of days that shall return no more.
While comrades followed mid-night joys,
He has tiresome texts prepared;
Not tempted he to join the boys;
No passing gain his heart ensnared —
But now, his credits all complete,
He holds that document so rare;
With blissful heart he waits to greet
The friends whose kindness placed him there-
The coming of those friends he waits
Whom God and Nature make most dear;
And he their joy anticipates
On hearing of their son's career.
This is the springtime of his life!
This is his Commencement Day!
The years of never ceasing strife
Have, like the winter, passed away.
He stands beneath a sky most blue,
The songs of birds fall en his ears,
And meditations deep review
The histories of bygone years.
He dreams of papers oft returned
With B's where he expected A's;
Remembers how his proud heart yearned
For just one kindly word of praise;
For he is not a genius who,
Like lightning through the stormy skies,
Glitters once a brilliant hue
And, with that flash, forever dies —
In his early life surpassed
His classmates and reached marvelous fame
Of short duration that did last
Scarce longer than the drummer's game
Of love, which ends the day begun:
No, he is like that light which breaks
With patience the dark clouds, the sun —
That great celestial fire which makes
The whole earth glow with wondrous light:
Through opposition he has fought,
By constant labor day and night.
Until at last his pains have brought
The long contended prize — success;
While they, who brighter far than he,
Have been through their own carelessness
Lost in that great and unknown sea
Of failure, where the whitened bones
Of many a gallant sailor lay
Who lacked the courage to go on.
Thus passed the months of school away.
And summer came when they were gone
Sweet summer that vacation brings
To weary students, days of rest.
In woodlands green where the wild bird sings
They seek the life they love the best.
Did he, dismissing all his care,
Enjcy these pleasures with his friends?
Did he the useless pastimes share
To which our folly ever tends?
Ah, no! indulgence in those joys.
For which his heart no doubt did long.
He did refrain, and left the boys
To glory in their happy song.
And on the lonely deserts drear.
Where coyotes give their mid-night yell.
And serpents vile are ever near.
And life seems little more than hell —
He watched the sheep both night and morn,-
And listened to their mocking call.
Until it seemed those baas forlorn
Were echoed from the mountains all;
Or, in the tunnels of mines dark,
Where soft daylight is never known;
By flickering candle he did work
To dig out riches not his own;
Else perchance his better fate
The duties of a clerk him gave,
To smile, and with false patience wait
While ladies planned a cent to save;
He may have had a farmer's hire.
And through the hot day drove the team —
No matter what he did, 'tis sure
He worked, that when the autumn came.
He might return to school once more —
He worked to gain a worthy name —
He worked to please his parents poor.
Thus he stands and meditates
On this the day of his success.
While for those loved ones he waits —
Waits for a mother's fond caress.
Well earned, this pleasure, my brave youth!
Enjoy the bliss thy toil has made.
'Tis ever, when we fight for truth,
That fate will see us well re-paid.
These are the hardships memory brings
In grand procession 'fore his eyes;
But are there not some happy things?
Did not his school bring else, but sighs?
Why, yes, of course, most joyous hours
Were spent within the dear old walls —
He dreams of dances, shows, and showers,
Theaters grand, and basket balls.
Athletics, how his class excelled.
Of trips, and parties by the score.
Of sweethearts fair whose eyes compelled
His heart to love — all these, and more,
Have filled his college days with fun:
And now, he comes to say good-by,
He fain would wish them just begun.
And leaves his class-room with a sigh.

At last the time has eoine for saying- go»>d-I)je to tlie dear old B. Y. U. High
School and to tlie many friends tliat ^ve lia^e learned to love. W^e are loath
to leave the happy home ^vhere four of the happiest years of our lives have
heen spent, still we are moving on to higher things and making room for those
v»'ho are to follow.
True, there is a sense of sorro^v in the reflection that many of us have come to
the parting of the ways to meet no more until in that Great Beyond, yet joy
fills our hearts for having known these many stalwart souls, and even though
we may never meet again our friendships will live on forever, and will always
be a source of inspiration to our lives.
As class president I have found my duties a pleasure. Never was there such a
class of real supporters. I have learned to love the many big souls that it has
been my good fortune to come in contact with, and I only regret that we can-
not continue to live the same united family we now are.
Now, fellow classmates, we are going out to represent world wide our dear
old Alma Mater, which has won international fame as a character builder. We
MUST hold up the family name of the school by doing carefully and faithfully
our whole life's work. Let every act be fathered by a righteous purpose. Our
greatness will lie in our goodness. We MUST value our chsiractiTs. We MUST
have a keen sense of honor. We MUST be honest, upright, and straight for-
ward. "We MUST be mindful of duty, not allured by show. Show paints the
hypocrate's face and wags the liar's tongue. Graduates from God's school, pre-
sided over by God's servants, must do all these things and more to represent
aright our Church, the Board of Education, the Faculty, and the Presidency In
their true light.
'<TVliat must I do to be forever known?"
*'Thy duty ever."

dozen fellows who were married at twenty," rejoined Jay.
The big janitor smiled witily; then, turning serious, as if he
were going to give some good advice for nothing, he began :
"Wootten, did you ever live on a farm?"
"Yes, I guess I have."
"Did you have a big herd of hogs?"
"Yes; I should say we did."
"Do you remember of ever feeding them hot swill?"
"Well, you know how they act. They all go crazy as soon as
they hear you pour the swill in the trough. The first one sticks
his nose in clean up to his eyes, but isn't long getting it out,
and goes rooting in the dirt. The next one does the same,
and every damned pig will stick his nose in that hot stuff and
go off squealing. Do you know that is just exactly the way
with you young bucks about getting married? Every one of
you must get your nose burned before you will know enough
to leave it alone, and then you know it's an awful long wedding
that hasn't got a Reno."

jj^mong the important developments of the present school year
is the enthusiastic development of inter-class debates. For
which we feel a deep indebtedness to our intrepid debating man-
ager, Geo. Worthen. Having been early imbued with Bulwer
Lytton's fiery sentiment, "In the lexicon of youth there is no
such word as fail," Mr. Worthen took up the responsibility of
his office with energy and good cheer. He immediately set
about to interest some of Provo's prominent business men, who
cheerfully responded and furnished an elegant silver trophy
cup ; which remains the property of the school debating society,
but the class and the class debaters of the winning team to be
engraved upon the cup.
It is with pleasure that we here record the fact that our 1912
High School Class and their debating team, James A. Bullock
and Irvin R. Tippetts, have the place of honor on the coveted
trophy. Among the events of vital importance in our class his-
tory was the announcement handed down by the judges on the
tenth day of March, 1912, in favor of the affirmative at the close
of the most important debate in our class life, that the vexed
and perplexing question which for decades had been puzzling
the Solons and Websters of the United States Congress — "Re-
solved, that the U. S. Federal Government should establish a
parcels post" — had been settled once and for all time by the
matchless oratory and profound arguments of our James
Demosthenes Bullock and our Benj. Franklin Tippetts.

Being a record of the first battle of the tribe of Stringham, in
the ninth year of the reign of Judge Brimhall.
1. Now behold, it came to pass in the ninth year of the reign
of the righteous Judge Brimhall of the B. Y. U., there arose a
mighty class of '12s, of the tribe of Stringham.
2. And it came to pass that they walked in the ways of their
ruler, and because of their righteousness, they gained much fa-
vor in the sight of their Judge.
3. Lo, and behold, because of their righteousness, it came to
pass that they gathered together for a time of rejoicing.
4. And it came to pass, while they were thus gathered to-
gether, the mighty hosts of the College, of the tribe of Beeley,
rebelled against the '12s, in so much that they refused to let
the '12s take instructions on their land, which is to the north-
ward, on a narrow neck of land called Temple Hill.
5. Now it came to pass that on the 28th day of the tenth
month, of the ninth year of the reign of Judge Brimhall, all of
the tribes of the B. Y. U. gained favor in the sight of the judge
in so much that they again gathered themselves together, yea,
even for a time of great feasting and rejoicing.
6. But lo, and behold it came to pass that the sons of Beeley
hardened their hearts against the sons of Stringham, in so much
that there arose a great rebellion, and they gathered together
their armies to destroy the sons of the tribe of Stringham.
7. Nevertheless, the sons of the tribe of Stringham assembled
their forces together to cause vengeance to come upon the sons
of the tribe of Beeley, and they sent a proclamation unto the
sons of the tribe of Beeley, that they would fight for the right
to receive instructions on whatsoever land was necessary they

the tribe of Beeley were crushed, and retreated to the grand-
stand in sore remorse.

STDDENTS TO BUILD GATEWAY
TO BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY
The "12's" High School Class
Will Spend a Large Sum
on a HagDiflcent Entrance
to the School.
(Special to the Herald-Republican)
The 1912 High School class of
the Brigham Young University,
numbering 150 high school gradu-
ates, will leave a monument at the
B. Y. U. that will be a lasting trib-
ute to the memory of that organ-
ization. The students some time
ago decided they would build a
gateway to the high school and
Normal buildings, so immediately
set to work surveying the south-
west corner of the high school
campus. After carefully figuring
out the cost of building a gateway
that would be a credit to the insti-
tution, the students found that it
would cost them $1,000 to do the
work, but voted unanimously to
put in the gateway.
P. C. Peterson, the present editor
of the White and Blue, and one of
the directors of the Sanpete Stone
Company, offered the class $150.00
worth of white stone of the finest
quality. Architect J. E. Allen drew
up the plans.
The base will be built of granite
and cement, while the capping will
be of white stone. It will be one
of the finest gateways ever erected
in front of a college. Work will
commence the first of next week,
and the students hope to have it
completed by the first of May.

Kenneth Bors, what Is It that you teach us?
Kenneth Borgr, teach the Jolly band?
Kenneth Borg;, 'tis suicide you teach us.
But we'll all meet together in the promised land.
A Twelve, quite green, tested for Oxygen.
He lit a match, but It was Hydrogen;
He stood and lu^ld the flask rtgiit in his hand.
And he started on his journey to the promised land.
A qualitative student ^vith his tongrue took a lick;
The unknown looked mild, but contained arsenic.
He was seized irlth a longing to join the band,
And started on his journey to the promised land.
A stnde made a test with cyanide.
His friends waited for him on the other side;
He poured into the mixture some H-^SO,
And he followed in the footsteps of those who'd gone below^.
Doc. Fletcher is the Physic Prof.
He's new to us, so we sliould not scoff;
But when he thinks that he can kick us out.
We'll cease to think that he's a good old scout.
Harvey PI etch — he's plumb full of mechanics;
Harvey Fletch— he's made of light and heat;
Harvey Fletch — he goes through funny antics,
" 'Cause he suffers with acceleration of the feet."
And then there's isometric Chester Snow,
He rips us up, when in our lessons we are slow;
His head's so big he cannot think.
And the flies all use it for a skating rink.
Chester Snow — he's crystallized and moulded;
Chester Snow — his head's a 'cllnal dome;
Chester Snow — he looks just like a fossil;
And soon hell join the bunch down at the Orphan's Home.
And then ^'e can't forget Prof. Wm. J. Snow
He never speaks of his classes as slo^v.
His weight Is nothing, as he Is six feet tall;
And he vron't even flunk you If you do not work at all.
William J. — he likes to tell us stories;
AVilliam J. — he's quite a preacher, too;
William J. — when he doesn't know the lesson;
He tells us of the things he used to do.

I stepped into Briant's parlor,
Three black-eyed kids I spied.
Katie looked tired and weary.
"Bry's off to band," she sighed.
In a little shabby kitchen,
Mid a dozen toey heads,
Who is there but Lottie.
"This is real life," she said.
There's a mansion grand and tall.
What a banker csJls his home.
By a cheerless hearth of stone.
Sits our Melvin with a phone.
On a little country corner.
In a granary of a store,
I peeped behind the counter,
Saw Clarence J. and peanuts 3 or 4

So took a seat on front row.
Up there thumping the old piano
With her head askew — Miss Roylance I know.

Also a dozen lazy youngsters.

Always so gay among the boys.

Hoping to know no other joys.
They took me to the hospital.
As I had a broken knee.

"Our Freddie" brought it up to me.

Some say the very next day.
I saw her teaching Sunday School,

Now seem so quaint* and strange.

"A stalwart race by harmony thus bound
Who laid opposing barriers to the ground;
We, in derision, scorn despairing throes,
Pluck diadems of victory from our foes."
This is the way in which the '12s H. S. see themselves. And^
in looking back over their class history one will see that they
have some grounds for this rather egotistic attitude.
Immediately upon entering school, they showed their aggres-
siveness by dragging the 'lis H. S. through the mill-race. Ever
since then they have been up to their tricks (especially with
those unfortunate foes) by taking the first inter-class baseball
series in which they competed, the Founder's Day track meet
of last fall, and inter-class wrestling championships this year.
Ever since entering school, they have proved themselves to
be as they say: the stalwart class who "pluck diadems of vic-
tory from their foes."
They are the kind who, with enough time and patient training
will make good college guys.
In looking back over our high school career many pleasing
and encouraging reminiscences come to mind. Our class con-
tests have been a source of joy and profit, and though we have
often been downed, we have won more than our share of vic-
Cft^ IV^ €onit^^ion
Perhaps our strongest rivals have been the '12s H. S., and we
confess that they are a commendable aggregation. Although
we have often become a little stern in times of strong rivalry,
we vacate our place for the '12s with the best of feelings and
the assurance of worthy successors. We wish to acknowledge
our appreciation of their banquet and ball given in our honor.
It was not only a creditable entertainment, but in many respects
a model. We admire your initiative and push, '12s, and wish
you as much success in your future undertakings as attended
your efforts in entertaining the 'lis.

Who never to himself hath said :

Whose spacious stomach never churned
Inside its owner while he yearned
To go and help his classmates eat?
If such there be, go get the shears —

Auburn his locks as wish could claim ;
Despite that head with all its swell.

"The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from
Go thou thy way and I go mine ;
Apart, yet not afar ;
Only a thin veil hangs between
The Pathways where we are ;
And "God keep watch 'tween thee and me,"
This is my prayer ;
He looks thy way. He looketh mine,
And keeps us near.
I know not where thy road may lie.
Or which way mine may be ;
If mine will lead through parching sands.
And thine beside the sea;
Yet God keeps watch 'tween thee and me.
So never fear;
He holds thy hand, He claspeth mine,
And keeps us near.
Should wealth and fame perchance be thine,
And my lot lowly be.
Or you be sad or sorrowful.
And glory be for me :
Yet "God keeps watch 'tween thee and me,"
Both be His care,
One arm 'round thee and one 'round me
Will keep us near.
I'll sigh sometimes to see thy face,
But since this cannot be,
I'll leave thee to the care of Him
Who cares for thee and me.
"I'll keep thee both beneath my wings,"
This comfort dear,
One wing o'er thee and one o'er me.
So we are near.
And though our paths be separate,
And thy way is not mine.
Yet, coming to the mercy seat,
My soul will meet with thine;
And "God keep watch 'tween thee and me,"
I'll whisper there.
He blesseth thee. He blesseth me.
