Ianuary, '47-Not only the beginning of a new year, but the
start of four new and exciting years which will be remembered all
our lives. Frankie Laine and Al Iolson were our song stylists, and
no matter how proud our parents were, we were only lowly fresh-
men. We had our first experiences with those 'fcartes blanches," the
Delaney cards. The crowds in the halls bewildered us, and when we
saw a Senior, we felt it a sacrilege not to give him the right of way.
Slowly we learned where everything was. The day we didn't have
to look at room numbers or S. S. stubs was the turning point in our
Ianuary, '48-We yelled "Freshie" but felt a little guilty, we
were only just removed from that ignoble status ourselves. For the
first time we noted a fact that was destined to be commented on
frequently-"The freshmen get smaller every term." We were
taking five majors now, and we labored at Herculean tasks. "Home-
work from every teacher! I'll never Hnish it!" But we always man-
january, '49-"The Seniors aren't such big deals." That was the
prevailing topic of conversation, but nobody talked back to them.
And who would be caught DEAD wearing GREEN on SENIOR
DAY? Oh well, only one more year to go.
Ianuary, '50-Seventh term was the last stepping-stone to the
exalted Order of Seniorhood. We waited through it impatiently,
but finally it arrived! The day we received our Senior hats we were
on top of the world. We had made it, and soon the prom would
arrive, and then graduation! There is more to being a Senior though
than getting Senior hats and pins and going to the prom. We are
ending four years that in later life we will perhaps long to live over,
but will be unable to, except in our memories. Upon leaving Andrew
Iackson, some of us will enter college, while others will enter busi-
ness fields or the Armed Services. Today our graduation and our
future are uppermost in our minds, but we shall never forget these
four years. They have molded us into good citizens, which we hope
we shall always be as we take our various places in this busy world.
