Book Excerpt
WM. MORRIS JELLY. Time, the thief has taken from our midst a companion genial and friendly. An active participant in school activities, we deeply feel his absence. Every affair would find Morris a willing volunteer and co-operator. With ample talent he very capably portrayed the character of the constable in the Commencement play of 1925. Scholastic, athletic and social activities found him always among the foremost.
Morris was born on Sept. 29, 1908, in Melancthon township, the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Jelly. In 1923, having completed his Public School, where he obtained his Normal Entrance certificate and Senior Matriculation Eng. Composition, with very creditable marks. He is now residing at home, but intends next year to attend the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph, to pursue a course in experimental farming.
Wherever he may go, in whatever sphere of life he may be , whatever he may do, we fell confident that he shall carry with him the banner of success. We extend to him our sincerest wishes for the best, that which a true friend deserves:

“A smile for one of mean degree,
A courteous bow for one of high;
So modulated both that each
Saw friendship in his eye.”
