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. Green and
white were chosen as class colors

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
