Thomas The hurrying years press on and I am growing old. My steps will soon be feeble, my brain it waxith cold. 19 Wrinkles will line my forehead, all dark and dark with mold I am nineteen today II My hairs, if there be any, will turn from 19 brown to gray. My teeth fall slowly one by one as I go on my way. My hands with care and toil be worn, my voice will be hay. 19 I am nineteen today. III Yet, with some ills, old Time brings on the dignity of age I feel it now, and soon I will be 19 haughty, proud, and sage. Majestic, and I'll grandly strut as if upon a stage. I am nineteen today.Memoranda 19 Composed Mar. 12, 16, by Ed, Pete, John Two little devils for friends have we, Sneaky, forgetful, and full of glee, Scorn invitations they give you. No matter how hard they may urge you, 19 Hospitality they lack In manners they are very slack, For when they invite you to dinners Those two little horrible sinners, Run off forgetting the date, 19 And leave you to an awful fate. Composed by Eliz. Sh. on occassion of invitation into EWE Club. Apr. 9, 1916 Ewee Ewee secret society she cried he died 19 Never again in the pines of Kentucky Far from the wail of the sea lions tail Ewee alas Ewee. 19 Memoranda 19 Chapel cuts - 1918 Feb. 9, 21, 23 Mar. 14, 16 Apr. 12, 22, 25 May. 2, 10, 12(Sun), 15, 19(Sun), May 25 19 Freshman year 12 A's 6 B's 12 C's Sophomore " 3 A's 25 B's 2 C's 19 19 19Memoranda The Books I read. 19 Sept 1917 - Dec. 1917.
