What ls a Senior? g What is a senior? There is a question, for what, indeed, is a senior? To begin with, of course, a senior is a person CYesl even a seniorj. But as we are not discussing people, only seniors, we'll assume you already know they are persons. flf you thought they were something else, we can understand it.j Q Mr. Webster, the illustrious one, whose staggering contribution to mankind, the dictionary, has always been a cog in the wheels of a student's progress, defines it thus: "Seni0r. 1. A person who is older than another. 2. Superior in dignity. 3. A student completing his final year of the course in American colleges, high schools, etc." Well, that's pretty good, Mr. W., but it ain't the way I heerd it! That's only the beginning, Mr. W., only the beginning! In this modern age of gilt and glass, you haven't told the half' of it. g 'Tis true, a senior is older fusuallyj than the other inmates of the institution: he is dignified, if one is to believe the time worn phrase "dignified senior" that has been floating around in the ether since even you, Mr. W., were a sproutg and he is completing his final year "in an American college, high school, etc." But, Mr. Webster, what is he? You haven't really told us. g Since you have flopped on this assignment, W. old boy, we'll have to adandon the wisdom of the ages and revert to a little modern jibe a la radio. Straight from station H E R E - Y E we give you those "Two Snoopy People", Dewayne Greenfield and Alice Beck, conne-sewers of concise confab. Mr. Greenfield, take 'em away! g "This week the following seniors from Hastings High are featured on your hit parade. We men who knew these seniors best say it's graduation two to one! 'Hold Tight' now while Bichard Kenyon and Ruth Babcock go to sleep on our first tune. Our advice to them is 'Please Come Out of Your Dream' and 'Wake Up and Live.' We now introduce the child star of the age, Ronnie Ingram, drooling over that little ditty, 'When I Grow-Up'-a medley of 'Drums in My Heart' and 'Stop Beating Around the Mulberry Bush,' first introduced by our maestro, Jack Rearick, will now be played as a hit parade extra.-Listen to Jacqueline Moore and Glenn Storrs as they render 'This Is It.' g "Our two candid reporters, Phillip Warren and Charlotte Wilcox, introduce a special news bulletin from H. H. S. Re rters have it that Stephen Hathaway and Arzelle Dodds are the best dressed seniors of the Glass of '39, and that Robert Castelein and Gretchen Beverwyk are in the lead for the best-looking boy and girl. Q "And now back to our hit tunes of the week. Band leaders everywhere are proclaiming 'Deep Purple' as the best ditty this week. This tune will be a solo by James McKelvey. g "Our guest artist for tonight, Miss Vivian Brooks, voealizes with 'My Heart Belongs to Daddy' played in honor of Mr. Carl Damson and Barbara Jean, cause how could Mr. Damson be a daddy without her? g "Virginia Morgan voealizes and Richard Lester violinizes on an extra, 'Shadows On The Moon'. g "Our comedy team Paul Draper and Betty Tredinnick fling about a few verbal slams right after we pause for station identification. g "This is station H E R E - Y E , Hastings, Michigan. Four o'clock eastern standard time. . "One more number is in order before your hit parade is over. Kenneth McClelland croons that current favorite 'The Masquerade Is Over'. 0 "There's your hit parade, folks. This station H E R E - Y E , operating on one kilocalorie, signing ofl' for the year." g And there, Mr. W., is a little cross-section of the H. H. S. Institute of Public Opinion spouting off what it thinks of its senior class. g But, there are those poor misinformed beings who are the modern definitioners of our day who believe a senior is that species who replies, when asked to do a little constructive study "There's Always Tomorrow". They are the specie who use that ultra modern guaranteed or your money back recipe of four cups bluffing to one cup brains fno crust needed, they have lentyj until they reach their "final year". He looks seldom at his text but the newspapers are Full of his desire and he says, "I Want To Be In Winchell's Column". He is the "Big Broadcast of 1936-7-8-9". Is he smart? Well, "Could Be". He's so smart he knows more than even his teachers for t.he dictionary? for, as he says, "I Get Along Without You Very Well". g Those, Mr. Webster, are just a few modern definitioners' opinions. Don't pay any attention to them, they don't count. Your definition is still tops wit the seniors, 1939. 12
