H. S. greetings and most sincere congratulations to the Class > 1942. A. H. S. We feel that we, occupy the unique position of being probably the earliest class graduated from the Algona high school to still have all our members living, and all bound together by the mutual interest of love for the home town, and a very warm spot in our hearts for the old school. i Our class was six boys, only. We lost our only girl classmate before our commencement, when she, with her parents, moved to Eagle Grove. Our professor, in presenting the class to the president of the school board, facetiously spoke of us as "The Pleiades", saying that we, like that constellation, were originally seven in number, but that we had lost our brightest star; . We graduated June 14i 1889. How Time has flown! And how different' are school methods and procedure now from whatllhey were in our school days! As we remember it, we had no athletics connected with the school curriculum, and consequently no inierscholastic field meets. There were no class plays, and no debating team, competing >with those of other schools. 'It was not customary at that time to wear caps and gowns for commencement, and flowers were considered the proper gifts for presentation to the graduates. Now flie graduates receive lasting and varied gifts, thai they can cherish for a lifetime. All our gifts were flowers, beautiful but perishable. Our class members are all near the allotted "three score years and ten", varying only a couple of year* from that milestone. Now we, the Class of 1889, extend to you, the Class of 1942, across the almost fifty-three years of lime and space, that separate our graduations and yours, our hands in a most cordial greeting. We know that you will do your part in the battle of life, and bring credit to our, and your. Alma Mater, , the Algona high school. Not only do we greet you as a class. we also greet the spirit of loyalty and fidelity to the old ' school, which we share, in common, with you. Someone has written a ooem, in which life is compared to a game, and ending with the thought that when The Great Scorer comes. He will not take into consideration at all. whether we won. or lost, but only "how we have played the game . , We hope that your highest ambitions in life may be re- allied. . GUY H. TUTTLE.
