Foreword F _L or complete and accurate coverage of Senior’s 1955-56 story look no further than this volume of whirligig. Its pages offer evidence of our staff’s unfailing nosiness, our attempt to mix in masterly fashion details and implications, and to interpret lucidly Senior’s color, doings and spirit. After all, how could we miss? Our x-ray-eyed know-all, “Whirl- ibird,” did the probing. He was present at every en¬ counter, in every huddle, meeting, or class.

Whether we are among the ones who barely slide under the 8:45 finish line and who whisk off in the mass exodus at 3:31, or among the slightly rarer ones who come early and stay on after school for any of the many varied reasons—getting out High Life on time, attending a club meeting, making up a missed assignment, doing a little extra library research, waiting for a late bus—all of us have countless reasons TRADITION and pageantry of may pole dance seem ever new. 8
