That picnic was doomed from soon as the tires were built and the sup- f' sudden rain storm came up, leaving all ?'By many different routes the picnickers guff and there were some who were thoughtful enough to bring the watermelon which had been left behind. These few quietly enjoyed the melon in an arbor on the bluff. The chaperons took a car home, but the majority of the party remained, seated themselves in a band stand and rent the air with their yells and shouts. Finally, as it still cone tinned to rain, they took a car for Benton Harbor. They reached the highway bridge in safety but could get no further because the power was gone. Some became impatient and started to walk, others took a hack, but a few remained, and after an hour's wait were able to continue the journey home. Then, there was the banquet at Robinson Hall, January fourteenth, as a welcome to Miss Bowen, who came to hll Miss Petitis place, and a farewell to Daisy Kelley, who was about to leave for Lansing for the rest of the year. It was through our efforts mainly that the old Adelphi meetings were recontinued. Every election- with the help of the Sophomores, who have many traits like us and who are a patriotic classa-has been carried in favor of our officers. Class Day our green and white banner appeared on the Hag pole. Three boys of the class had managed the night before to climb out on the roof from Miss Farmeris room and hoist it. There it remained all day, an object of envy to the other classes, who did not dare to take it down. Not until almost time for the program were there any Juniors in the assembly hall. Then we marched down- from upstairs; the girls in white with green sashes and green garlands in their hair, and the boys with green neckties. XVe

Class History. On September sixth, 1904, we, as F reshmen, ar- rived at high school to begin our ascent of the ladder of learning. After being classihed, we recormoqtered the building to find out what teachers belonged to! the different rooms, so that when classes were called we should make no mistakes. Imagine our disgust and righteous anger on the second day when we were packed Off upstairs, after we had picked out nice comfortable back seats in the assembly hall! The only really Freshman act com- mitted occurred on the first chapel morning. After dismissal, a line of Freshmen poured into the ward- robe, quite ignorant of the fact that the outer ward- rnhe doors were closed. They say it was a very em- harassed line which marched out again. September twenty-hrst, the Junior president called the class together for organization. Strange t0 saV, we were not terrified by the summons as former classes have been. XVe elected Daitsv Kelley, presti- dent: Harry Young, x'iee-president; Robert Belknap, secretary: and Harold Sessions, treasurer.
