12 The Commercial Record
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
It is needless to relate the embar-
rassment and timidity felt by the Fresh-
man class when it first entered Busi-
ness High School, January 31, 1919.
All the members of this class assem-
bled in the auditorium, under the
direction of Mr. L. B. Austin, our
principal. After Mr. Austin's speech
of encouragement, followed the assign-
ment of classes. As each assignment
was given for the following day, the
task seemed more and more difficult.
Our hopes were blighted. Would we
ever be able to make an A grade on
our first report card? Yes, it was pos-
sible, and we resolved to try. At the
close of the year, practically all the
pupils were promoted, for our broad
intelligence was noticed by all.
Our 10B semester was a remarkable
one. At that time, the girls thought it
was time for them to be grown-up, so
they proceeded in putting their hair up
in attractive puffs, and began wearing
high-heeled shoes. How hard we did
strive to abandon those child-like ways,
and adopt new ideas. The semester
passed quickly and all were anxious
to know what they made on their re-
ports. How grand it would be if we
could only rank as 10A's next semester,
just to think of graduating in five
After an invigorating summer vaca-
tion, we returned full of enthusiasm
and bright prospects. We worked hard
and steadily, but at the same time we
had many pleasures. Among them was
a Hallowe'en party which was success-
ful. We also visited different places.
At last the Freshman class of 1919
are Seniors of 1921. They have reach-
ed the height of their ambition and
now stand first-class in their school.
With regret we are leaving our dear
old school. We leave to our friends
and schoolmates our best wishes and
hope that success and good fortune may
follow in the footsteps of those we
