Well, here we are, all ready To sTep in and Take our places as seniors. The dear old senior class doesn'T know whaT inTeIIigenT and TaIenTed juniors iT's geTTing, or does iT? While wandering around The halls Today, I saw The sweeThearTs oT The school sTroIIing hand in hand, and They were no oTher Than Vera BarreTT and Billy Meeks. Billy seems To have lived up To The saying of "In The' Spring a young man's Tancy-" i'g.s , ......,Miss C.Anduiar good naTure, To say no+hing oT his good looks which have been Tound ouT by mosT oi The Junior girls, is Telling us j1:?sT we have a in I-Iarold. , Oy.

AT Junior class meeTing The oTher day The president Harold Shaw, presided. I-Iarolcl is gaining The Top rapidly. I-Iis ease and Triend To all and even increased The TaIenT in our band by lending her own musical abilify To iT. And could we ever TorgeT our besT all around girl? Eleanor can shine in a game or in a dance, and we all know iT. She can always be Tound cheering up someone, or laughing aT our jokes-Tunny or noT. She's our own Sun Shine Girl. And There's The sTar of The Team-Mrs. Dove's son, Eddie. holding up The wall. WiTh him is a IiTTIe souThern girl whom her moTher calls Brownie Varnell. Now I ask you. can you blame Dovey for being IaTe? I sTopped around back of school To waTch our 'Track Team and as usual There was Charles "Dinky" ScoTT coming in TirsT. Dinky wanTs To maior in sporTs and we really believe he's going To do iT. I-Ie has made a name Tor himseIT'in TooTbaII, baske+baII and Track. One of These days he'll come back wiTh so many medals we won'T know him. Running down The sTeps I nearly Tell over Alan Brown who was having a hard Time making his TeeT behave. Since Alan has become The Fred AsTaire oT G. W., we can hardly expecT him To resisT going inTo his dance or going inTo someThing. Tearing around The corner in a Ford was Mary Lee CarTer. Mary Lee can always be seen Tearing around some corner in some Ford, aT someTime wiTh somebody-or someThing. My ThoughTs wander To our grand dance, glanced around The room, and who should I see buT The sheik of The school in Jimmy TayIor's cIoThes. Jirnmy's going To be in All STaTe iT he keeps going aT This raTe. Seeing The resuITs of The rifle meeT posTed on The bulIeTin board, I glanced aT The Top and saw Donald O'Neil's name sTanding There. Donald surely is going places-wiTh ThaT gun of his. BeTore long he'll probably be going To Africa and coming baclf as Donald O'Buck or someThing like ThaT. Glee Club meeTing before The Norwich Club ConcerT Turned ouT Tb be a rioT when plans Tor The Club Tea Dance were being discussed. As usual, The boys showed Their ignorance and wondered how They were expecTed To dance wiTh cups of Tea in Their hands and "why couldn'T we have a beer dance, anyway?" Well, as long as They are boys I suppose There is an excuse. ' c o I peeped in The gym aTTer s h ol and and I can clearly see Jimmy's OrchesTra making The dance a success. You know Jimmy really has loads oT TaIenT in his orchesTra. I-Iis new vocaIisT, Judy Bradley. has made us all siT up and Take noTice. And There's I.udy Minnigh crooning soTTIy and Jimmy causing hearT Throbs wiTh his voice: and oT course There's no orchesTra wiThouT Lindwood "DooTsie" Reed singing as he beaTs his way To Tame on his drums. AITo- geTher, Jimmy has one grand orchesTra and we shall never TorgeT how proud we are oT iT. AT lunch Time as I saT wondering why we have GeomeTry and also if my hoT dog was quiTe dead or iT I was slowly murdering iT, I 'U -ii? s. wondered why we weren'T STaTe Champions wiTh such a Tine Team. Ed Snyder was really shooTing Them. Ed's anoTher norTherner in our midsT. The norTh musT be moving souTh, buT we don'T mind as long as They can play basIceTball like Ed. And of course, I saw Archie Thommasson because Archie is anoTher one who is going places. I-le plays baske+baII and baseball iusT as well as anyone and ThaT's some playing. Well, as I yawn and climb inTo bed, I wonder if The nexT Junior Class will be as proud of Their Juniors as we are of ours. 1 i i- 1-71 .ll il-11i among the sophomores Russell Kranzfelder PresidenT , Vice-PresidenT SecreTary ,, Sponsor. . , As a good many Sophomores are, BeTTy Kiger is very enThusiasTic over The iazz hiT, "The Big Apple."
