19121 THE CRITERION 13
Journey to City of Knowledge CLASS HISTORY H 2311
Now it came to pass in the ninth
month of the year of our Lord nine-
teen hundred and nine, that a certain
class of peoplel, led by certain disci-
ples2, began a journey which would
lead them to the wonderful City of

some filled with stonest, but others
with Howers. The pathi which they
now followed was so new and beau-
tiful that the children would fain have
gone alone, but the disciples smiled
among themselves and called the chil-
dren Sophmoreites. And because
they followed diligently the teachings
of the disciples, their way was pleas-
ant and their number large and the
disciples loved them greatly.
And they continued in the walk the
next year, and the disciples called
them J uniorites. And lo! many were
the thorns and rocks in the road, and
they were sad in spirit, and tl1e dis-

the wayside, and some took other
roads where they could journey on
more slowly, and still others turned
back. And those that were left wept
often, and no one comforted them,
and they feared they would never
reach the City Beautiful.
The students were brave and good,
so they kept on their journey, and the
disciples called them Seniorites, and
they were happy, because they knew
that they had almost reached the City.

And the peopleu who followed not
in the path envied them and said dark
things among themselves, but the hap-
py students heeded them not.
As they neared the gate, the disci-
ples spake to them, saying, "Ye good
and faithful servants, ye have done
well, and now choose one among your-
selves to be your leader, for are ye not
drawing near to the time when the
disciples will no longer be with you?"
And they chose one, Ernestw, known
for his class spirit and earnestness,
and they were well pleased.
Then the disciples gave each stu-
dent a piece of parchmentlit, on which
the events of the journey were in-
dead and buried
scribed, and by this they could enter
the City of Knowledge.
And the disciples warned the stu-
dents thus: "Verily, I say unto you,
some there be who wish to come into
the City, and cannot, for the gate is
narrow and it may perhaps be closed
before you can squeeze through, but
go joyfully, with your parchment in
your hand, and meekly walk through.
Inside the City is eternal joy."
Then, bidding the disciples fare-
well, with their robes drawn around

the gate and traversed the streets of
the City of Knowledge, and were

Reflections of a Senior
The days are long and bright and cheery,
But they drag and the hours seem so weary.
The pupils try the lesson to tell,
But, alas, they don 't succeed so well,
For the day is bright and cheery.
Be still yet a while and try to hear,
For exams., like vacation, are drawing near.
Learn a few more lessons and you will be
From all such worries and cares quite free,
And the day will be bright and cheery.
