A Juniors Day in School Stumbling over my books, dropping my lunch, with a thud I flopped into my seat just as the 9 o’clock bell sounded. A reminder from the rear that we were having an English test quickly brought me to my senses. Three—four—five minutes passed. Time staggered on, drawing me nearer and nearer my doom. Oh Fate, what hast thou in store for a little girl who doesn’t let studying interfere with her education! Teacher gave me a very kindly smile as I entered the classroom which made me feel just a wee bit guiltier than before. When she began to put up that test, my agony really began. For one hour the brainstorm raged and at last came the blessed bell releasing me. I took two or three steps in the hall and suddenly found myself surrounded. “Did she really give you a test? Hard? ’Djew flunk?” Each question was succeeded by wails from those innocent little butterflies. Indeed, they had my most heartfelt sympathy. Finally I managed to wade through the crowd to French class—“Comment allez-vous, mademoiselle!” Irregular verbs rattled off my tongue. “Ah, vous savez votre lecon tres bien!” A kind word helps a lot, doesn’t it? Then third period in choral class, I was a shining light. For the first time in my life I hit high “A” with the greatest of ease. But I thought the remarks from that senior with such a superiority complex about my not feeling well were both baffling and uncalled for. Mrs. Peery said something about strained, screeching notes, but I guess she meant the girl beside me. Can you imagine how happy I was? I always have thought lunch time about the most delightful part of the day (that is, except breakfast and supper time). I contributed my share of rare and juicy gossip, as usual. After I had finished my lunch I made a tour through the halls to observe some of the bleeding hearts. The first thing I saw was that a cer¬ tain young man’s fancy had lightly turned to thoughts of blonds! (grrrrr—rrr) I tried to shut out such a heart-rending sight by retiring to the Cafeteria (ice cream sandwiches sometimes help). The sound of the bell marked the renewal of the eternal grind. Feeling a little depressed, I marched to history class. There under Commandress Moore we fought the Civil War again. I was dozing—the South was gaining her victory—confusion —turmoil—and then the hammerings from the workshop awakened me in time to hear the announcements: “The following clubs will meet in etc., etc.” Fortunately, I had prepared my geometry homework for Sixth Period. I went to Debating Club and thence to Geometry class. The instructor asked me to explain a problem to the class. I timidly crept to the board. My tottering reputation fell as I realized my shortcomings in math. Disgustedly she explained the situation. “Young lady, when you can read with seventh grade intelligence, you can work any problem in this book!” I meekly sank in my seat, red with confusion and embarrassment. After school I was standing at my locker. I saw him approaching—without the blond—he was going to speak to me—could I be dreaming? “Basket ball game tonite?” “Y-Y-Yes, sure, I mean I reckon so!” “Isn’t life wonderful?” I gasped. Bettie C.
