DQADIAH L1 HISTORY OF T1-IE CLASS OF 1927 As a painter views with satisfaction the picture which he has painted, thus does the class of 1927 look with gratifying thoughts on the memories of the past. The first week of October, 1924, marked the gathering of the newcomers and re- turning students to New York State School at Morrisville, New York. lt was a reg- ular reuniong every one seemed so welcome and right at home on the hospitable school grounds of dear old Morrisville State School. We freshmen complied with the regulations which our superiors or Juniors so proudly made. We admit the fact that we furnished much amusement for the Juniors and with good school spirit which we continued to have throughout the year. During the second week of school there was a reception held for the Freshmen, after which every one of the Freshmen knew all of their classmates, Juniors and Seniors. The Freshman flag of '27 proudly waved on the flag pole opposite Bailey Hall not to be taken by any Junior. The bids for the Fraternities were sent out after six weeks and the Freshmen made their choices. The class organization was strengthened by the election of ofiicers: John J. Whitmari, President, Robert Utter, Vice-Presidentg Edward Ryan, Treasurer, Charles Shepherd, Secretary, and Professor Severance was chosen the class adviser. One of the vital representations of class was at a banquet at Lebanon, at which the Juniors arrived just in time to say ffGood-nightf' having had their ride for noth- ing. Our class excelled in athletics, having five freshmen receive letters for football. We competed in the track meet and class basketball with good results. The enthusiastic feature of the second semester was the Frosh Hop which, after being postponed because of impassible roads was held, and the finest time of the year was enjoyed. Thus a most profitable school year ended. In October, 1925, the classes gathered to welcome their old friends and receive six new girls into the class. Believing uUnity is Strengthfi the class was organized, electing Peter Rasmussen, President, Peg Bridge, Vice-President, Estella Higgins, Secretary, and Stew Bene- dict, Treasurer. The first event of great interest was the Junior Class banquet, held at Colgate Inn, liiamilton. Every member finally arrived after some difficulty, oh, yes, to be sure the Juniors captured the freshman president and took him to the banquet. Junior Prom was the big event of this school year. The dance program was furnished by the Maroon Serenaders from Colgate. A The Juniors won the cross country run, taking all of the first three places. We were not as fortunate in basketball, but we did win a couple of games. When the school year ended the students were not happy to leave but looked forward to the next year with even greater enthusiasm. The largest Training Class ever organized in New York State was registered September, 1926. The Domestic Science girls and two year men joined the ranks in October, forming the Senior Class. Page thirty cs . ffwlgs ..,- ff1s 5 "T'E' DQADIAH-W---.-f-fl This has been a very successful year in athletics. The Seniors held the Frosh to a scoreless game of football in the fall. The Seniors held second and fifth places in the annual track meet. We have had some mighty exciting class games this year. Our class has won every game played with the Freshmen and Juniors and all but two played with Faculty, during which the best of school spirit was shown. The Seniors have written some peppy yells and songs which helped the players to be victorious. Many parties were enjoyed after the games. Our officers for the second semester were: President, Howard Van Scoy, Vice- Fresident, Knola Weller, Secretary, Margaret O'Connor, and Edward Ryan, Treas- urer. March 9, 1927, the Seniors and Faculty were invited to the annual Senior ban- quet held at Colgate lnn, Hamilton, New York. There were excellent toasts and speeches given by the Faculty and Seniors. We will long remember this Senior banquet. The history of the class of l927 ends, but wherever we roam we shall always, yes, forever and a day, love and cherish our Alma Mater.

A. in September, 1926, when the girls, numbering twenty-three entered the two year course of Teacher Training. ln October the boys and the Domestic Science girls arrived, swelling the Junior ranks to thirty-eight. Their first meeting was held in Bicknell Hall on October 11, 1926, and the fol- lowing oliicers were elected: President, Marvin Culbertson, Vice-President, Zaida Weller, Secretary, Lucia Gray, Treasurer, Edward Rycraft. Professor Howlett was again chosen Faculty Advisor for the class. James Kelly was elected Junior repre- sentative to the Athletic Advisory Board. Having selected these members as the leaders, the future of the Junior Class was assured. The first event of great interest to the class was the banquet held at Utica on October 13. Most of the girls thought they were on their way to score a country school house and were greatly surprised on being informed of what was really tak- ing place. The boys asked the aid of the Frosh president in moving a stove and carried him off, giving him a real feed for which he paid with a speech enjoyed by all. The honorary guests were: Director and Mrs. Charlton, the former giving a talk full of helpful hints to the class. The uFrosh,,' much to their sorrow, learned of the feast too late to add excitement to the occasion. However they were at the hotel door when the happy ones filed out. In the Cross Country Run the class was represented by Robert Nesbit, who came in third place, thus winning a medal for himself and honor for his class. Plans for the annual Prom to be given December 17, were well under way when the student body Was compelled to leave N. Y. S. S. A. on account of scarlet fever. When the class returned in January, the members were sorry not to have Cul- bertson with them. They are very proud of the lovely banner which he gave to the Junior Class. The election of officers was again held and Clifford Alcott was chosen President and the other officers were re-elected. The class were pleased to have six new mem- bers join them. After much delay the Prom was given January 28, 1927. Stewart Hall was prettily decorated with the class colors and music was furnished by the Onondaga Concert Orchestra from Syracuse. All who attended were given a good time. As the year draws to a close the Junior Class have many pleasant memories and look forward with great anticipation to the year when they may becalled Seniors.

J AX fxs Q rf ADIAJTI--L--A HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 729 During the first week of October the Class of '29 saw for the first time the village of Morrisville and the State School of Agriculture. During the first week here the Juniors furnished us with amusement at night. Some of us had to take long walks for our health and others took baths. But it was all with good spirit. The next week we held our first class meeting and elected officers for the first semester. Chuck Aldrich, Presidentg Kenneth Horan, Vice-Presidentg Murray Ames, Secretary, and Carl Langdon, Treasurer. Professor Spader was chosen as our Class Advisor. The third week of school the class and the faculty gave us a reception at Stewart Hall, where every one met each other which started a good school spirit and a feeling of friendship. ln our class football games we defeated the Juniors and held the Seniors to a tie. After the football season had closed we put our flag up in the maple trees in front of Madison Hall. That day we were furnished lots of excitement. But our flag stayed up until we took it down. At the beginning of the second semester we elected Charles Aldrich President, Arthur Salisbury Vice-President, LeRoy Welcome Secretary and Carl Langdon Treas- urer. ln the class basketball games the Seniors and the Faculty defeated us by a had score, but we managed to defeat the Juniors. On March 15 we held our banquet at the Lincklean House at Cazenovia. There were a number of Frosh who tried out for both football and basketball who showed good form for next yearls Varsity team.

Tj? QADIAH FOOTBALL SEASON 1926 Voted the most successful season in the history of the school! Four victories and one defeat is the record left behind by the 1926 squad. Six letter men returned for the autumn sport and were further strengthend by the addition of several Frosh. Tn the two weeks of practice before the first game, Coach Brooks drove the boys at top speed and turned out a fighting bunch. AGGIES 12-ST. ALOYSIUS 0 The Aggies drubbed St. Aloysius Academy at Home 1.2-0. Horan kicked off for Morrisville. St. Aloysius hit the line twice for no gain. On the next play Van Scoy recovered a fumble on the Home 30 yard line. lvilcox and Jewell carried the ball to the 10 yard line where Jewell plunged off tackle for a touchdown. Using an aerial attack St. Aloysius marched down the field and threatened to score. Jewell inter- cepted a pass and raced 80 yards before he was tackled. A smash bang attack straight through the line and Wilcox went over for the second counter. Edgertonvs deadly tackling was another feature of the game. AGGIES 6-MANLIUS JUNIORS O This game was a thriller. Both teams battled on even terms until the last few nioinents of play. Alcott took the ball and raced around left end on a trick play to score the only touchdown of the game. AGGIES 0-CANASTOTA 12 Canastota jumped on the Aggies to the tune of 12-0 in the third game. Briggs and Fazio for Canastota gained at will through our line. A pass from kick formation netted the first touchdown against us. Using the same plunging tac- tics Canastota scored again in the third quarter. Here the Aggies took a bracer and marched down the field. Forward passes and end runs placed the ball in scoring po- sition. Canastota tightened and the ball was lost on downs. Canastota proved to be the only team to score on the Aggies during the season. AGGIES 13-MOHAWK 0 The Aggies played great football to win this game. Several times Mohawk threatened to score but that fighting, blue-jerseyed bunch of ours rose up on their hind legs and heaved the Mohawkers for a loss. Bowden threw a pretty 30 yard pass to Horan for the first touchdown. Wilcox kicked goal for the extra point. Buns by Bowden and Jewell placed the ball in scor- ing position again. Here the Aggies sprang their pet trick play and Jewell slipped across for a second counter. The whole team played a snappy brand of football. AGGIES 19-SHERBURNE 0 The final game of the season was played at Sherburne. It was a loosely played contest, due to the muddy field. Bowden scored the first touchdown after a nice run Page fifty-tliree 7 7' , A y c Q A Us 'WADQ EIAH by Jewell. A long pass to Adle placed the ball in position where Clay plunged through center for a second score. Bowden intercepted a pass in the third quarter and raced across for a third score. W'ilcox kicked goal.

A ssistant Manager The season started with a new coach and practically a new team, as only three men from last yearis squad returned to school. The team, as it was first picked, lined up with Shobert and Ames, forwards, Aldrich, center, Jewell and Bowden, guards. Four games were won before school was closed because of scarlet fever. The team was broken up for nearly a month and lost all the benefit of a good early season training. Just after school was resumed the team traveled to Syracuse for a tilt with Holy Rosary. The first three quarters were a battle royal, but Rosary wore the Aggies down and emerged the victor. The game with Hamilton was close all the way, the Aggies going into the lead just before time was up to beat our rivals on their own court. The following night we played in B-ville and lost. Every player was basket shy and missed shot after shot at close range. This same jinx was the main cause of losing the next six games. Coach Spader changed the line-up, revised the style of play, threatened and cajoled in his efforts to lift the team out of its slump. The tide finally turned with the second Boys' Club game and of the eight remaining games six were won. Among the victims were the Alumni, members of the famous 1922-23 team. The latter half of the season saw a new line-up. Horan and Jewell, forwards, Aldrich, center, Bowden and Wilcox, guards. Kelsey and Ryan were string substi- tutes and saw action in nearly every game. Aldrich led in scoring with 123 points, Captain Jewell second with 108, Shobert 87, Horan 82, Bowden 741, and Kelsey 21. Coach Spader deserves much praise for the manner in which he handled the team. Since Captain Jewell and Bowden are the only two regulars who will be lost by graduation, the school has hopes of a great team next year. BASKETBALL RECORD Date. Aggies Opponent.

Prospects for a fast basketball team looked good from the start but hard luck was evident during the first .half of the season. A Good coaching and faithful attendance at practice soon showed results and the girls began to annex victories Without apparent effort. This was the first year that the school had a girls' basketball team and we sin- cerely hope that this good beginning will continue, year after year-more and more successful. Girls earning basketball letters this year were: Geneva Ezick, captain, Margaret Bridge, Olive Coe, Marian Quackenbush, Evelyn Paquette, Adele Palmer, Marie Cox, manager. Those entitled to monograms Were: Lucille Trask, Dorothy Hughes, Thelma Lewis. The games played during the season were as follows: Morrisville. Opponents.

S. S. A. this year, due to the efforts of the members. They entertained us at every occasion which needed their help. Several townspeople again played in the orchestra this year and their help is greatly appreciated. The double quartet and chorus were organized early in the year under the direc- tion of Mrs. Greene. We have met every Monday and Friday, and have had some good times together. We have done some singing at the churches. The chorus partici- pated in the Commencement exercises, and members of the double quartet took part. You haven't heard very much about us, but we are very much alive just the same, and Mrs. Greene has proven a very patient and capable supervisor.

A v -W -Q ""T"ADQADIAH ANIMAL IIUSBANDRY DEPARTMENT The past year has been a notable one in the history of the Animal Husbandry Department. The first 1000 pound butter record in the history of the Morrisville School was made during this year. Sunnycroft Queen Echo, 688222, produced in 365 days 21,777 pounds of milk and 1022.5 pounds of butter. This is not only one of the few 1000 pound records but is the Holstein breed record for senior four-year-old cows in Classification B. Thus, Morrisville State School of Agriculture has her first world record cow, uQueen." Four of our Holsteins averaged 19,701.4 pounds of milk and the average of the entire herd, Holsteins and Jerseys, was 13,892 pounds of milk. It is the future policy of the School to keep in the herd only registered Holsteins and Jerseys-Hol- steins for high milk production and Jerseys for high butterfat test. Albert S. Priest, class of 1924, has had charge of the livestock for the past year, and a mighty good job he has done, as the above results indicate. Mr. D. A. Curtis, Jamestown, N. Y., gave the School a well bred Jersey cow of good Jersey type during the year, and Mr. George W. Sisson, Jr., Potsdam, N. Y., gave the School the Jersey herd sire, HSprite,s Golden Baron," 241332. The dam of this bull brought 331500 at private sale. The New York State Jersey Cattle Club pre- sented the School with a wonderfully bred Jersey heifer through the influence of the President of our Board of Trustees, Mr. F. W. Sessions, Utica, N. Y. We are fortun- ate in having a host of good friends. The Holstein herd sire is uProspect Prince,'7 455411, a grandson of the cow that holds the worlcl's milk records for one and two years production. The three nearest dams of uProspect Princen average, milk 365 days, 29,771 pounds, and butter, 1159.8 ounds. p Two other notables- were added to the livestock department. uMorrisville Sen- sationf' a son of c'High Major Sensation," Gold Medal Grand Champion Duroc boar at the 1924 International Livestock Show, and HB-onnie Leas 413,', a son of MBonnie Leas McKenzie,7' Grand Champion Hampshire ram at the 1924 International Live- stock Show, came here to give the boys an idea of what good livestock should he. 1 A fm..-AM Page seventy-three W, E f A is c A DIAH rtizxezzezzuzrmzzrrnsxu Alcott, Rycraft, Aldrich Gallinger, Van Scoy, Rasmussen, Jewell, Ryan, Benedict, Barden.

A large, pleasant room in the rear of Bicknell Hall has been ob- tained and is in use as a chapter room. It has been decorated with fraternity pictures, etc., and serves the purpose very well. On November 19 the fraternity put on a dance in Stewart Hall. This was attended by a large number of the student body and the fac- ulty. Another party is planned for the month of March. lVle-mbers are looking forward to this date with the idea of a good time for all. Plans now call for the sixth annual banquet of the fraternity to be held in the lVl. E. Church on the night of April 2. Brothers Damon, LalVfunion, Gauss, Page, S. Whitman, J. W'hit- man, Shepard, Benner, Cronshy, Reader, L. Page, Fleming, Mather, Edingcr and others have visited us so far this season. Page eighty THE SCHOOL THE SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE ees e Y' - A..,- .- 6 THEADQADIAH.-gL.,Q.4 THE SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE lt is a source of pride to the Faculty of the School that so large a percentage of our graduates actually establish a home and become engaged in the business of farm- ing. It is our slogan that We :6Train for Farming" and results seem to prove its truth. Over eighty per cent of our graduates are either actively engaged in farming or some closely related activity. The men in the School of Agriculture are not only trained along agricultural lines but also have developed some of the other qualifications that tend to make better citizens. They are trained in leadership by service in the various organizations, in cooperation by playing on the various athletic teams, in business methods by acting as manager of the various activities, and finally they have learned the value of service to others. The traditions of the School have all been instituted by the men students and they are loyally upheld by everyone. The School does not claim to teach the men everything about agriculture, but we do claim that every student that has finished his course is a better farmer and citizen than he would have been if he had not come to Morrisville. During the past year a questionnaire was sent to every former student who ever was registered in the School of Agriculture and it is interesting to read about the various positions they hold and occupations they are engaged in. One man wrote that he had been around the World three times since leaving school but now is farm- ing on his own farm in Central New York. Another is the owner of a wholesale llorist business in Louisville, Kentucky. Another is in the state of Washington. Dan Millis is in Texas. Gus Lemp of the Class of T912 is ranching in New Mexico. livery one is still interested in his Alma Mater and enthusiastic about its training. Another factor in our success is the enduring friendships that have had their be- ginning here. Men from distant parts of the state come here, meet some one who appeals to them and another life long friendship, more precious than words can ex- press, is formed. In this Department there are courses in general farming, poultry husbandry, dairying, animal husbandry, horticulture and Horiculture. A new course, farm me- chanics, is to be instituted in the near future. Students may specialize in any of the above that they choose. Short courses of twelve and twenty-four weeks are also offered in each department. L. J. H. Page eighty-three X HOME ECONOMICS ee a as Ae 'V "i"i'AD DIAH-.---+- HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT In the Home Economics Department of the New York State School of Agricul- ture three courses are offered. Everyone enjoys an attractive home and good food. This is what the State School is trying to teach every girl who enters the general Home Economics course. Every girl wants to become a good homemaker. The duties, which confront a young homemaker, are many. Practical courses such as Clothing, Foods, House Management, Home Nursing, Nutrition, Hygiene and Millinery form a foundation on which to place the ladder to greater success. An old saying is MWe do by doingf, ln order that the girls may put into prac- tice what they have learned it has seemed best to have a practice house or cottage as it is more often called. This cottage is equipped with all conveniences and it is here that both Juniors and Seniors live as a big family and actually practice Homernaking, during a period of ten weeks. The Senior girls manage the house, handling the finances, doing the buying and planning the housekeeping and meals for the group. The Junior girls carry out the actual housekeeping activities. The course not only Hts a girl to be a homemaker but also to be manager or do sufficient work in tea rooms, cafeterias and institutions of a similar kind. The new cafeteria, which is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences, affords us the chance to train our girls to handle food in large quantities. Another course is the one year Trades Course in Clothing, Millinery and other practical subjects which aims to make every girl a better homemaker or help to in- terest her in taking commercial positions along these lines. Also the third course, a three year combination course, is given. This course includes a general course in Homemaking the hrst year, followed by two years in the Teacher Training Department which fits girls to teach in the grades in villages which have a population up to forty-five hundred. Page eighty-jive -l , I l , i ., TEACHER TRAINING TEACHERS, TRAINING DEPARTMENT The first week of September, 1927, is historically important in the annals of this school. The largest Training Class ever assembled since the establishment of the school gathered for classes Tuesday morning, September 6th, This year marked the innovation of the two years Teachers' Training Depart- ment and accounted for the increase in enrollment, there being twenty-five in the Junior class, eighteen in the Senior class and twnty-two in the one year course. Graduates of the second year of Teachers, Training are prepared to teach in the elementary department of schools located in towns with a population'of. four thou- sand five hundred, or less. Nearly all of the student teachers reside at Helyar Hall, a dormitory for girls, and help to make that place home-like with their merry presence. Early in October the new girls were effectively initiated by the Seniors. During one week of humiliation and despair, the little Hfreshiesn lived meekly and retiringly in their gaudy array of variegated clothes. After this terrifying week had slowly dragged by the MFreshies,' emerged as Juniors and took their allotted place in school routine. Soon after the Seniors elected their class olhcers and the following were chosen: 'Thelma Lewis .,................. President Knola Weller ....,... , . . Vice-President Margaret O'Connor . . , . . . . .Treasurer Genevieve Rockwell ..,.,..,...... Secretary Their eiiiciency was greatly appreciated by the class and at the second term elec- tion they were again chosen to occupy the same offices. The Juniors organized their class shortly afterwards with: Marion Quackenbush ............, President Hazel Keller , ....,.. ...,,., V ice-President Marjorie Boast . ..... Secretary and Treasurer Social entertainments were somewhat limited this year, due to the epidemic that waged during the winter. Scholastic activities, however, were unlimited. The girls Worked with zeal and a great deal of enthusiasm toward all their studies. To enter a classroom at Morrisville is indeed a pleasure. The first impression given is one of activity, sincerity and attentiveness. The class discussions are mo- tivated by a spirit of alertness and fervent attention. The girls looked forward to the days of practice teaching and observation in village school, and the rural schools at Pine Woods and Morrisville Station. The Seniors showed their initiativefand originality in forming the Euthalpian Literary Society, which not only gave an opportunity to become better acquainted with the well-known and best-beloved poets and authors but also to become familiar with current fiction. Throughout our school year we have tried to be faithful and true to our Alma Mater and we hope that she will have reason to be proud of us when we go forth to CHI'1'l OUI' SUCCCSS.

Until that time, I had not been fortunate, or unfortunate, which ever may be more appropriate, enough to remain at Helyar. As my Friday afternoons were usually spent in preparing for the horneward flight, it was necessary to find something else to occupy my mind. So, to keep out of mischief, I decided to recopy some 4'Design Notes" which Miss Munro had dictated in the long forgotten past. The evening was spent in reading, nothing more excit- ing being available. Saturday was an uneventful day until 10:00 oaclock, when the 'flights out" bell rang. At that particular instant, by orders of a Senior, I started down the stairs to peer into the darkness from the west living room window. I hurried back but not quickly enough as Miss Morse had witnessed my flight. Sunday morning dawned and with it came hopes that I might be granted the permission to spend the afternoon at home. On mentioning the subject, I was in- formed that I had broken a rule and girls that did that were naughty. My hopes vanished. Nearly everyone is familiar with the rule which I had broken. It reads something like this: :Tights out and room quiet at I0:00 o,clock.w The light was out and can you tell me how the room could be otherwise than quiet when there was no one in it, as my bunkie had accompanied me in the wild dash? I tried to tell Miss Morse that she would be sorry but she very quietly responded, Wllhreatening will do no good." By this time the last ray of light had vanished from my vision. O, why had I obeyed that Senior? i Then, she repented, and I'm afraid my heart told on me as she quickly added, 'Troviding you and your roommate wash and wipe the cereal dishes in the kitchen, sweep the floor and dust off the stovef, It was hardly fair to uBunkie'7 but neverthe- loss she was willing and we quickly completed the task. "Many hands make light workf' But would either of us have been as willing had we known the condition of the roads? I must confess that we would not. During the storm of the previous night the roads had become drifted and cars were making slow progress in traveling over the snow bound routes. Again darkness reigned and I was still in Morrisville to remain another week. Perhaps it was my punishment for breaking a rule, but it seems hardly right when I had already paid besides being in disgrace with all my fellow students. I spent the evening in studying the rules and since then have tried not to break more than half of them. EXPERIENCE OF THE OLD TOWN CLOCK Tick, tockg tick, tockg I have a story to tell you, I have a story to tell you: The story of the young people of Morrisville Agricultural School and of their pranks and good times. Tick, tockg tick, tock. I am old and wheezy but maybe I can tell my story. Page ninety fr 'fit' QQADIAHWQQ I have resided in this place a long time but as you seem restless I will tell you only of the last few years. Pardon me a minute, but I must strike-one, two, three, four, five, six. I will hasten because you must be in by 7:30. How did I know that? Many's the time I've heard the girls scolding when they looked at me and my hands were at the fatal hour. Some of them pouted, some of them were angry with meg I have to stand the ire of all. Every October I have watched the boys parading in the streets until I became so sleepy I could hardly say pardon me when I had to strike. The boys were thrown in the fountain. They crawled on their hands and knees, they even shouted and sang under the girlis windows like veritable Romeos watching their Julietls windows. In the morning these same boys would appear garbed in the queerest costumes. It looked as if they intended to lay down and make up for the time lost romancing under ,lulietis window. The girls appeared the next morning much the worse for Iiomeo's visitation. It looked as if they hadn,t had time to comb their hair. It was in pigtails and then some more pigtails tied with green ribbon. My hands shook with laughter at the queer sight. Before many weeks my laughter changed to fear. One night the boys were rushing madly around. Were they going to again charm ,Iuliet by their marvelous voices? No, they had a piece of cloth in their hands and some pails of evil smelling eggs. What could it mean? They gazed at every high place available. Once their eyes traveled towards me. It was time for me to strike twelve. I shook, I gasped, I trembled, my striking was hardly audible. The boys gazed at me questioningly. They began to ask what is the matter with the clock? They didn't know that I was quaking with fear for my old hands. They finally left me and hung their precious piece of muslin on a Hag pole near Bailey Hall. The next day I found out the use of the eggs when some boys, I had seen the year before, came down and I almost strangled. Tick, tock, what a smell, what a smell. It was some time before I recovered from the nerve racking shock of that horri- ble night but there was still plenty of good times to watch in Morrisville. Sometimes with a stealthy look upon their faces and with noiseless tread a good many carloads of joyous young people would steal out of Morrisville. For some unknown reason this would stir up as much and as noisy a commotion as if a hornetls nest the size of my abode had been struck. Then they jumped into a truck and whizzed away amidst shouts and hurrahs. The next day I heard some tales of disconcerted waiters, broken Crockery, and black eyesg all the result of the tumultuous hornetls nest created' by the disappearance of the Frosh president. I smiled so widely my face almost cracked. Pardon me again I beg you for my striking hour must interrupt my story, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. Yes I realize you must go so I will hasten my tale. There is not much more to tell you and my voice is getting wheezy with the effort. After the last escapade everything went along smoothly except for occasional excite- ment caused by basketball games and their outcome. Once they acted the same way as when the Hornetls nest had been stirred into turmoil. Such foolish folks, I had rather rest in my framework than travel all over the country all night. Tick, tock, how foolish they act, how foolish they act. The sad time came soon and my poor old cog heart almost stopped beating with sorrows of graduation and the dwindling of the young folks from April to June. I dread that part of the year and sometime I fear I will never run again after that ter- rible strain. My heart is slowly breaking. Yes it is nearly 7:30 and you must go. Tick, tock, tick, tock, thank you for listening to the reminiscences of an Old Town Clock. Good-bye. Page ninety-one fs -4 rf D EIAH Fnosn WEEK Frosh Week! How we all shook and trembled as we thought of what might hap- pen to us. What terrible creatures the upper classmen appeared, to our frightened eyes. ' Suddenly, on the eve of the fatal day, there was a great rush for the bulletin board. Our orders, for the next day, were posted! The Drug Store and Dexter's were very popular until seven-thirty and much green crepe paper and green ribbon were bought. This was the big question. How could we braid our hair in six pig- tails? Most of us had bobbed hair and mine was a boy bob. That was the worst yet, however we managed to do it by getting up at six oiclock the next morning and were seen running around the next day adorned with pigtails tied with green bows. Strangers probably thought we were leaving town for we carried suitcases or bags which were decorated with green bows. This, which I shall now reveal, was the worst of all. No powder or other cosmetics could be usedl How our noses shone! It was a strange appearing group that went to breakfast that first morning, but we did not feel quite as green when some of our brother freshmen, from the dorm, appeared in their pajamas with their names on the'r backs, and we learned that, in addition, they had had a long walk before breakfast, which was not their fault. When one is taken out in the night and dropped several miles from home, he tries to get home for breakfast. . The next day it was worse than ever. No one could tell whether we were coming or going for our dresses and coats were on backwards and inside out. Even our stockings werenat mates. All day long we carried poles with a string and bent pin attached and tried to catchsome Mpoor fishf' Some of us succeeded. There was a meeting in the camp that day and, as a result, a few of our sister frosh went for a short,.swift ride and a long, long, walk back. Frosh week ended the next day much to the relief of many. We had lots of fun out of it, more perhaps, than did the ones who were responsible for our misery. CONFESSION OF A FRESI-IMAN TO A SENIOR When I first arrived at Morrisville, I thought I was 'just about as wise as I could be. I had heard quite a lot about the school, and how cruelly we would be treated by the Seniors, and I had my mind made up to give those -Seniors the surprise of their lives. ' But when I beheld the intelligent enlightened look upon their faces, and the muscles of their brawny arms, I felt about as big as a grasshopper, unworthy to share the same table with them at a meal. . And now having been here several weeks, and realizing how completely I am at your mercy, I humbly beseech you to use discre- tion, ever bearing in mind the Golden Rule. Teach me whatayou can patiently, for I realize just how very dumb I am, and know how trying and nerve-racking it will be for you to endure me. But all faithful workers receive their reward, and so it will be with you. I am earnestly hoping and feel assured by the time I am a Senior you will see that your labors have not been in vain, and that you have made me a worthy member of your school. W 1 Page ninety-two, .yt fx Q! ""i'E' DQADIAH............ THE DUEL The Senior Boy and the Senior Girl Side by side on the sofa sat. 7Twas half-past eight and so live heard Nor one nor t'other had said a word. The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate Appeared to know as sure as fate There was going to be a terrible spate. QI wasn't there,'I simply state What was told to me by the Chinese plate.l The Senior Boy said: HI won't wear a gown." The Senior Girl replied: 'LThen I'll turn you down." The air was then filled an hour or two With words that turned fair Helyar blue. Vvhile the old Dutch clock in the chimney place Up with its hands before its face For it always dreaded this family rowl flxlow mind, lim only telling you What the old Dutch clock declares is true.l The Chinese' plate looked very blue ' And wailed, uOhl dear! what shall I do.'7 Each argued his own to the very end And oh! how I feared each would the other offend. fDon,t fancy I exaggerate- I got my news from the Chinese plated Next morning when the two did meet They were so friendly upon the street, And some folks seeing them that day -Would not have known she sent him away. tThe old Dutch clock it told me so- And that is how I came to know.j And in spite of this duel so grim and great School spirit advanced at a wonderful rate And the boys who wouldn't declared they would And the girls had forgotten just where they stood. So they measured the waist ' And they measured the head Q, And none can remember what the other has said. Page ninety-three Q -.Ti'E' D AISIAH A SCHOOL SPIRIT One big factor in our daily life is school spirit. Without it we can do nothing. With it we push Never forwardgv Never upwardf' The desire to cooperate with our Alma Mater in whatever she sponsors, whether it be athletics, studies or rules, is instilled in every student's heart. It's the feeling of love and good will that makes us want to do our best, and give our best. When the name Morrisville State School is spoken, our hearts swell with pride and the same wave of feeling surges over us as is experienced in an athletic contest when our side sweeps to victory. What makes our side victorious? Each and every one who backs his Alma Mater shares the laurels of a hard earned victory. It's the great combination of loy- alty, faith and brawn that Wins the fight. The phrase L'School Spiritn means a great deal. It embodies a strong sense of duty, characterized by a greater sense of fairness and conscientious work. Let us then, pass our school spirit on-enlarged, more stirring and greatly in- tensified. We'll be slow to smite and swift to spare- Loyal, faithful and just, And in the fear of God, we'll bear The torch of love-our school's great trust, 'FALSE ALARM Peg, Hazy and Betty were studying peacefully, quietly-supposedly-but in reality they were far away in a land of dreams and the "view very sweetly playing "Thinking of Youf' For once these three girls were not talking-strange, wasnit it?

"Gee, I do! Smells like something burning." 'gThat's right." This from Hazy. Investigations were then made, from every possible corner-to under the chair. "Gee, suppose the cottage burns up?"

TIMELY SUGGESTIONS Do not study your lessons-you MAY get by fand you will have less to forgetj Do not display manners-you might not be known. Do underhanded things-it adds to your reputation. Talk against your school-it is dignifying. Be very silly-it adds to your recommendation. Wear a long face-it cheers those around you. Always make excuses-it is a good habit. Help yourself to everything you see-if you don't someone else will, Throw napkins and crackers in the cafeteria-it is good basketball practice. Make plenty of noise in the library-so others can study. Talk after ten o7clock-others can sleep better. Donit be on time to serve meals-some one will do your part. Boys, don't get up in time for breakfast-it might make the girl's work easier. Be sure to sit on tables in Helyar Hall-otherwise the linen covers might be smooth and neat. Don't talk about evolution-it's too personal. Do not keep your appointments-teachers will wait for you. Co the wrong way in the hall fespecially in Brooks Halll-this will give you the pleasure of retracing your steps. Leave your gum in conspicuous places-it is easy to clean off. Do not contribute to the Arcadian-the surprise might prove fatal to the editor. 2112434254 Miss Williams asked how that was, and he said, uYou may know arithmetic, but one got out, how many would there be left?', Cliff answered "None.7' Miss Wililams asked how that was, and he said, uYou may know arithmetic, but I know sheep.'7 is Pls Pk if Pat and Mike were discussing whether there was uafter life" or not.
