1938 Senior Class Poem The class of ’38—that is the name That they have given us. And yet we feel Bound by a unity far closer still That “class” implies. Our love, our hate, our shame, Together we have borne—a common blame A common victory, a common peal Of laughter ours. No mighty pow’r can steal Our oneness, nor unity defame. Together we have striven for the best, And now we face the world’s great open door And hear in life discordant notes of wrong That clamor to be righted. All the zest Of life is ours. Now give us we implore, Oh, ’38, the power to be strong. Written by Albert C. Winn
