eflections 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 scholastic careers. 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- aged to-somehow! 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.
