Peggy MacDonald was president of the class. October 2, 1924. A gathering known as the Senior picnic was held at a beautiful spot many miles from school. Strange looking conveyances carried the members to and from the meeting place, and various ceremonies were conducted. It should be noted here that the group returned by moonlight, which was con- sidered a great feat, for they seldom braved the danger of the night. February 4, 1924. Group migrated to the Great Northland called Intervale, where sports were engaged in with much enthusiasm. Although the members became greatly fatigued, it is noticed that even now, when one of them perceives a flake of snow, the name Intervale is recalled with great agility. March 6. Class received Senior rings, which were sacred to them as bands of friendship between one another and all previous graduates. March 11. Members presented a play known as " Pomander Walk " , to which people journeyed from far lands, in order that they might see the remark- able talents which the class possessed. May 10. One of the greatest ceremonies in history took place, namely the Abbot Prom. The event was distinguished and crowned with glory by a group of undergraduates who were seated in the spacious organ loft of Davis Hall. June 10. Commencement. Members received rolls of parchment with strange writing thereon, known as diplomas, and soon afterward the group separated to all parts of the world. Their history, however, does not stop with this event, for they distinguished themselves in many ways thereafter, and the name and fame of the class of 1924 will never perish. Good -night. 41
