GROVE HIGH SCHOOL
Will of Senior Class '22
|Will of Senior Class, '22
WE, the Senior Class of Grove School, '22, being of unsound mind, but of a
Hvery disposing memory, and knowing the certainty of "flunking" and the
uncertainty of graduation, do hereby make and publish this, our first and
last will and testament, hereby revoking and invalidating all subsequent
wills and promises made by us heretofore.
Item I. We will and direct that all our debts, both just and unjust, including the
expense of our graduation, remain unpaid forever.
Item II. We desire the thirteen cents remaining in our class treasury be given to the
Athletic Association. Professor Taylor is authorized to use it in the way he sees fit,
and if there be more than he can use, we direct that the remainder be given to found an asylum for old maids and homeless cats.
Item III. The physics students will and bequeath "one centigrade thermometer" to
the Physics Class of '23. They may quarrel and scrap over it as many times and at
whatever time they choose. We also desire the pins of the "lab" be taken care of and not allowed to rust.
Item IV. To the juniors and those that "flunk," we will the sole right to the first
row in chapel. We hope they will prove worthy of this place, so well occupied by their most worthy predecessors.
Item V. We also will to our aspiring successors all our privileges, both real and
imaginary, providing of course they do not allow such liberties to cause that fateful malady often termed "the swell head."
Item VI. To our sister class, the sophs, we duly will all our pep and ability to put
things over. And we direct, in order that they may keep this high quality of pep and
ability up to the highest point of efficiency, .that they read the Book of Proverbs and
obey the Fen Commandments. And too, as your sister class, we advise you never to
indulge in crap shooting or moonshining.
Item VII. The right to get married in the second semester is hereby passed on to the Seniors of '23, but if the hand of fate prevents any from taking advantage of this opportunity and you feel all hope is lost, to such unfortunates we direct that the asylum for old maids be placed at your disposal. Besides these enforced gifts, we leave to all, including the faculty, our blessing and pledge of friendship for all time.
All the rest and residue of our property not herein specified, we bequeath to Principal J. H. Bayer for his use, and his use only.
And we do hereby appoint the said principal sole executor of this, our last will and
In witness whereof, we, the Class of '22, the testators, have set our hand and seal,
this 14th day of May, one thousand nine hundred and twenty two.
