'W ' tale ot' how the Freshmen were treated. Having at last found our
seats in the assemhly room we sank out ot' sight with a sigh ot' relieti.
XVe were a large class. At the end ot' the lirst year. however, we were

Although al the heginning ot' our second year our numbers were some-
what diminished, as individuals we had grown wonderfully. Iinickerbockers
had given way to real suits, and the girls who the year hetore had worn
curls, now wore plaits tied with ribhons at the ends,

so that we might have the proper dignity when the great event came. XVell,
the great day came at last, the day on which we became Seniors. There is
nothing like heing a Senior, and one has to he a Senior to appreciate the full
meaning ot' the word. And how one changes! The girls who, during the

During the winter we took a hola-sled ride to the home ot' Oral lfurst,
where a very pleasant evening was spent. Another delightful evening was
spent when the class went on a hay-wagon trip to the home ol' Gladys llam-
ilton. Un the last day ol' the spring term the lligh School Department held
an all-day picnic on the campus. Athletics and dinner were important fea-
tures ot' this.

and lnalry mouth and we say, llorrorsI was l ever as young and green as
that? XVe look at the Sophomore, giggling at mere tritles, and we say, Can
il he that l was ever that giddy? Then with a smile ol' amusement we watch
the proud .lunior as he marches through the halls and we say, Heaven for-
hidf XVas that haughty expression ever on my l'ace'? Then we wonder what
they think ol' us and il' they look up to us as we looked up to those lrefore
ns in years gone hy.
