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.

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-
