SOPHOMORE 'CLASS HISTORY
On November 22, I946, regisfrafion clay for a new Arnold College
on a new campus, we gafhered for fhe firsf fime, fwo hundred sfrong.
We were a liffle apprehensive for fhis was fhe firsf day of four years
which we musf employ fo gain our degrees. During fhe firsf few days
we became acquainfed, and fhe nominal appellafions of "Hey Mac" or
"Bud" became a friendly call of Joe or Bill. Soon friends and buddies
which will las+ fhe lifefime of each individual were made, and fhe Fresh-
man secfion evolved info a unified, friendly group which quickly asserfed
ifself in campus affairs. The baslcefball feam was composed wholly of
Freshmen, and fhe baseball feam was well represenfed by mem-
bers of our class.

The second semesfer afforded even closer relafions and friendliness.
The soffball field was fhe scene of our greafesf friumph as an all-sfar
feam of Freshmen defeafed 'rhe inframural champions of fhe Sophomore
Class. On May 8fh we accumulafed a winning number of poinfs in fhe
fraclr and field evenfs even if mosf of us were a dusfy and bedraggled
lof af fhe end of fhe day. Thaf evening fhe fownies and dorm men gof
fogefher af a picnic supper for fhe firsf fime, followed by informal cro-
quef mafches, and finally a social during which fhe day's champions were
given Arnold lceys.
On July 3rd we bid "goodbies," "see you nexf year," and ofher
such idioms, going our own way for a summer of relaxafion and recupera-
As fhe vacafion days dwindled, leffers of insfrucfion arrived, and
we began 'ro gef anxious for fhe renewal of old friendships and fhe famil-
iar campus of old A.C.H.P.E. By Sepfember 22nd we were ready and
waifing for regisfrafion day. lmmediafely affer exchanging greefings
and quiffing fhe rigors of regisfrafion we were anxious fo learn whom our
secfion mafes would be, and learn if we had fhe "easy" or "'rough" profs,
wifh whom we were acquainfed from 'rhe previous ferms. Amazingly
soon we wenf back fo worlc on fhe books in earnesfg and fhough we foolc
fime off fo cheer on fhe foofball feam and go 'ro fwo or fhree dances,
fhe necessify for sfudy was culminafed by an avalanche of ferm papers
which, if seemed, we pondered over for efernifies. A Chrisfmas
recess helped, buf fhen-exams again. lf seemed as if some invisible
force had placed a silencer over fhe school for fwo weelcs. The Library
sfaff was lcepf busy and all available Library space occupied.
H' seems, however, fhaf each day brings our class closer fogefher
and sfrengfhens fhe bonds of friendship and spirif. As each day passes
fhe fhoughf of fhe acfivify in fhe nexf is an elixir which expands our com-
pafabilify as a class and fills our hearfs wifh gladness because we are
members of 'rhe Sophomore class of Arnold College.
