The girls of Bide-A-Wee have enjoyed a year full of a mixture of fun and work.
Will we ever forget that initiation last fall when the old members held their sides
and wielded the stick while the new ones fished persistently through the garbage
can for mere pennies.
The one event which means the most to us as a club is the Annual Vaudeville.
Did we study? Well, if we did we don't know when.. We know that no time was
wasted within our halls during those three weeks. When the night came the
Coliseum was packed to the box seats and the show went over with a bang. As a
result we have added to our reception room a Hoor lamp, piano bench, table and
The Bide-A-Wee Club holds meetings each week where the business of the club
is transacted and the Pages' Report is read which contains all the interesting news
of the week. Our presidents for this year have been Stella Brockway and Doris
Throughout all the year our Dean, Mrs. Gates, has-been most kind to us and ever
solicitous for our welfare. Altogether we count this an enjoyable experience of
dorm life and can wish for our successors nothing better than just such a year of
fun and work at 'iStay A While". ,
When college opened Patroness Hall presented its usual cheery aspect to the girls
who were returning, and it certainly kindled the fires of affection in the hearts of
the new girls. In a short time all were settled comfortably in their rooms and were
ready for initiation into the Patroness Club. The terrifying event Qwhich happened
at a most unusual hourl was a great success from both the view point of the in-
itiators and the ones who underwent the ordeal. The new girls bravely suffered and
smiled while they endured all sorts of torture.
Soon after school started the Patroness girls decided they wanted to get better
acquainted with their neighbors, so the 'Bide-A-Wee girls were invited over for a
party. One of the happiest times for the Patroness family was at Christmas when
each "little girl" hnug her stocking, and found it generously filled. Such fun as
each girl in turn emptied her stocking!
The big social event for the last two years has been the Annual St. Patrick's Ban-
quet. The banquet was unusual this year in that a secret was revealed which made
all the girl's happy.
The girls have been drawn closely together by the social activities, but "the tie
that binds" is realized more fully when each Wednesday night they gather for a
short prayer service before going to the chapel for the regular service.
The activities of our hall have been under the leadership of our president, Edith
Woods. Edith, with her remarkable understanding of the girls, has been an ideal
leader. Tess, our Dean, with her many kindnesses and regard for the girls, is loved .gi
and appreciated. This year has been-a happy one for all of us. At our house meet- '
ings there has been manifested splendid co-operation and good fellowship. VVe have "-
learned to live together harmoniously and to love and value' each other as true
friends. - ,'
