J U NIO R -SENIOR BANQUET
Page 151 text:
This is probably the most important social event of the year and is looked forward to by both Juniors and Seniors.
Neat invitations were received by the Seniors and, while the following week was one of happy anticipation for the Seniors, the Juniors were especially busy and mysterious.
At 8 o’clock on Friday evening, March 27, 1908, the Juniors and Seniors assembled in the “chapel parlors.” When all had arrived each Senior was led b a Junior partner to the gymnasium below. But if the room were a gymnasium, no one could recognize it, for it was tastefully and elaborately decorated with the colors of the two classes, co-minglcd with the Normal colors, whose honor both classes strive to uphold. Upon entering, one was struck with the brilliancy of the scene, for candles and flowers seemed to gleam and blend into one harmonious whole. The favors were carnations and bouquets of beautiful flowers were very numerous as centerpieces.
The tables were arranged in an immense swastika, seating three hundred people or more. By the swastika arrangement of the tables, the Juniors seemed to wish all kinds of good luck to the Seniors, and let us hope as great popularity as the swastika has recently received. The serving was in charge of Miss Loomis and certainly no banquet ever was given where the service was so prompt and efficient. The following palatable menu was served:
Consomme Salted Nuts Pressed Chicken French Peas in Cream Waldorf Salad Neapolitan Ice Cream
Crisp Crackers Olives Saratoga Chips Parker House Rolls Cheese Straws Angel Cake
After this material repast, a veritable intellectual feast was served in the form of the following toasts:
Joys We’ve Tasted..........
Our Alma Mater.............
We Owe the World a Living
Shall I Miss Them?.........
The Teacher’s Calling......
----Bert E. Swenson
..Julia H. Van Driel
.....John A. Hanna
----Prof. C. F. Beck
.......G. D. Jenkins
..Prof. J. M. Howie ...A. Mary Dittmer
........C. O. Oline
Pres. J. W. Crabtree
Everyone seemed to be in his best mood and responded happily to the introductions made by the capable toastmaster, R. D. Sims.
In the wee small hours of the morning the guests departed, feeling that never could a Senior class have been more royally entertained.
