KNOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS:
We, the Senior Class of 1928 of Pennsylvania Avenue High School, Cumberland, in the County of Allegany, of the State of Maryland, and of the United States of America being of sound mind and memory, having finished our many hardships, and knowing the uncertainty of this life, do hereby make and publish this our last will and testament
Our most precious possessions and treasures will hereby be mentioned and bequeathed as follows:
First : Our liberty, probably our most cherished possession, is hereby donated to those who respectively deserve it.
The loving and fond remembrances of a perfect class, we leave to the faculty.
We also bequeath to the faculty a parking space for the ever-growing number of cars and other vehicles possessed by them. (After much deliberation, we discreetly use the word "possess" instead of "own.")
Second : To the Juniors we make the following bequests:
Our reputation, said reputation being of sound character at this time. May they preserve it as they receive it.
The right to be Seniors, and to assume the dignity attached to this position. This assumption will be a terrible ordeal for many of these Juniors, as it will be a huge undertaking, but we sincerely hope that they will be able to rise to the occasion, although we entertain our doubts.
Third: To the Sophomores, the following:
After our departure, the privilege to take a "short cut" unmolested through Room 11.
Pennsylvania Avenue High School, Cumberland, senior class.
