The feelings of a Senior are pracfically indescribable.
Enlering +he Geneseo High School as mere Freshmen, we fell' somewhal' awk-

ship of Dorofhy ScoH. Jusl' as we became Sophomores. and fell more al' home
in high school. we moved in+o our new high school. This year we chose William
Dwyer as president ln Seplember I933 we enlered as Juniors and really began
+o do Things. The crowning acrivify of The year was The Junior Prom af Long Poinl.
Douglas McCaughey was al' This lime our leader.
As Seniors-Well if has been lhe greafesi year of all. The Dramafic Club. 'fhe
Ari Club. The Aclivily Club, and 'rhe E+ique'H'e Club, were all organized in our Senior
year. These social ac+ivi+ies did' nol conslilule all our worlc, however, as we spon-
sored six money-making ac+ivi+ies for fhe annual Washinglon frip. We were so suc-
cessful in raising our 'fund fhal The maiorify of The class could lalce advanlage of This
The alluremenls of advenfure, of opporlunily, of romance awail us in fhe "wide,
