January, ivjo L n K U IN ILLLS I I Do You Remember? It was at four o’clock on some after¬ noon almost nine years ago that most of us first set foot on a “hum” play¬ ground. Whether soccer or baseball was being played, we were probably ig¬ nored that day. It was no wonder when we learned, by experience of course, that the best fighters picked the teams and were also the star players because no one dared to supersede them. Many times the games ended in a quarrel, but, looking back, it was great fun. The zest for sport became part of us and we are grateful for it. Intramural The years gradually perfected the class games so that in our first terms in the Houses we were well equipped for giving our support to our respective col¬ ors as Midgets. It was our first taste of “house spirit” and rivalry in the class. In succeeding terms we expressed our loyalty and had an opportunity to play on the House first and second teams. Never will we think of Girard without recalling those struggles for the various cups! Some one has said that the school team is only a spur for fine interhouse activity; and from what we, as players and as spectators, have witnessed, we might be inclined to believe it. The Hum Teams From the earliest of our days as sports¬ men each one of us cherished the secret ambition of one day playing on a college team. A look, however brief, into the honors of the various members of the class will prove beyond a doubt that our hopes were realized. Soccer was the chief success for out of the nine games we played all were victories. Track was a popular sport, and the team won a large number of its meets. Basketball, though only three of our members played last season, was in a measure successful be¬ cause of our representatives. We were, on the whole, well represented in the five major sports, and we wish to express our appreciation of those members of our class who so ably captained their re¬ spective teams.
