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. Green and white were chosen as class colors . w e were a strong class with a membership of torty-nne. and early showed class spirit and enthu- srasm whreh has won praise for us during our staV in 1115111 school.

The morning after commencement, about nine o'clock. the class set out in a hayrack for Poittawat- omie lark. After the picnic dinner dancing was en- iOVCtl. Harry Vawter and Eva Alden furnished the iniisic. About five we started for home, determined to go again next year and have as good a time. 7 One week after school began in 1907 the present Senior class was organized and our officers elected: Emmett 'llay-lor. president; Daisy Kelley, Vice-presi- dent: Eva Pearl, secretary; Ralph Cunningham, treas- urer; M11 Williams. class counselor; and Miss Bowen, clizipei'on. .Xt the second business meeting we decided to publish an Annual which should excel all others in in- terest as well as talent. Those who purchase one this year will find this is true. Two beach parties were enjoyed, one at St. Joi- scph and one at Hig'man Park. The hayrack ride, the supper which awaited us and the pleasant evening spent at the home of Leda Granger will long be re- mcmhei-eil. One of our number has become quite a hypnotist and displayed his power by bringing two members of the class under his spell.
