Freshman Organization. September 4th. 1907, when the heavy doors of the new high school were thrown open. and the sound of bells told us our summer vacation was over. ninety Freshmen entered. along with the other three grades. The First few days we were a little timid and perhaps frightened. but soon grew accus- tomed to the duties assigned us. October fourth. we remained in Miss WYhitney,s room after school to organize a class. Some stayed 'for fun. others from curiosity. lVith the Juniors elp, the class was organized. the constitution read, nd the following officers elected: president, Martin ollins for the first semester. and William Lowe for e second: Vice-president. Clifford Stone; secretary, Larie Goodenough: treasurer, Evelyn Grow; class 4 nselor. Miss XVhitney. These officers have per- ed their duties willingly and faithfully, being id in the highest esteem by the class. i October seventeenth, Miss Whitney chaperoned crowd to Fair Plain, where a pleasant evening was t in roasting marshmallows. We have been, by no means, a slow class, but have entered into the fun with spirit. Friday evening January seventeenth, the Freshmen entertained the Juniors at Robinson Hall, which was prettily decorated in the class. colors. Music was furnished by Hayncsl orchestra. All enjoyed themselves until twelve-thirty dclock, when the strains of tlHome, Sweet Hornell told them it was time to depart. Then again, March 6th, 1908, the same hall presented a lively picture. This time, however, the Juniors were entertaining the Freshmen. The evening was delightfully spent in dancing and other amusements. We have had a number of other entertainments, at which all equally enjoyed a good time. Different members have aided in making chapel interesting for the pupils and visitors, by singing and playing. We have also some good athletes, who hope to enter the regular team in the future. As a class, we have reason to be proud. We have given the faculty very little trouble, have furnished amusement for the higher classes, and most of us have made good records in our studies. --0. P., ,II.

In fact some one did see him very , often. How many times a day did Sue Melville carry a hit of paper to the waste basket in order to pass the row of windows at the back of the room? How many imaginary references had she looked up just because the book-case in the far corner of the room held en- clopedias and its approach led past those windows? 5 Dick and Sue had had a iitiff"'---what it was out no one knew. But there was a decided coolness a the atmosphere and many were the conjectures as the cause of this sudden frostiness. Bob, as chum the former and brother of the latter, had exerted his infiuence to straighten out matters but to no i1. Each side was as immovable and unimprCS- ble as adamant and the would-be mediator had . up in despair. It was the morning of the much anticipated day ccordingly every one was in a bustle of excite- Stores, business houses and dwelling places were swathed in hunting and banners until the whole town seemed to fairly shout orange-and-hlack. The weather was all that could be desired, the air balmy, and cool little breezes blowing suddenly up from the lake. The time was October, but the weather was like June. Sue, in her room at home. stood surveying a heap of orange and black which lay on the bed. Some of the more enthusiastic of the iiFootball Sistersh had decided to show their loyalty by wearing the colors of the home team. However, this ttSisterii meditated and was doubtful as to what was best to do under these iiextenuating circumstances? Here she was, hmadii at Dick, and Dick ttsoreh at her, a great game about to come off, and her presence at a game always an inspiration to Dick tso he had saidy Yet he need not think she cared, r10, indeed! Susie threw up her chin and, stepping to the bed, like Samantha Allen, she tiketched a firm holt on her principles,ivincidentally on her dress-opened the closet door and hung the offending article on a hook. Without hesitation she turned her back to it and closing the door sat down on the bed. a iiNo, he neednit think that I care? she repeated. Of course she did but that was another question. Just then a cheerful iiOo-hooii sounded from be-
