(The upliniunrc JIartij For just one evening, November 25, tlic Kindergarten room was changed from the Trainer’s building to one of the rooms in the Adminstration building. Truly this room scemel like fairyland to all the kindergarteners who began to arrive at 7:30 and looked with great admiration at the wonderful pictures of birds and animals, the paper chains, and the drawings with which the room was gorgeously decorated. Persons, you should have known, were bedecked in garbs of every hue and almost every size; the dignity so natural (?) to the worthy Sophomores was cast aside and they entered into the spirit of the farce. An onlooker would have thought that their diplomas should be granted fourteen years from now instead of only two. Much relaxation was afforded by the childish games of “Button, Button,” ‘Blind Man’s Buff” and “Cat and Mouse.” In this last the class adviser proved co be quite agile. Extremely appropriate, too, were the palatable refreshments, consisting of milk and animal crackers. This party, as well as all of the other social affairs, has been very interesting, due to the fact that they have the ability to originate ideas and then, by co-operation, put them in action. Although it is usually thought that children going to the Kindergarten have little memorizing ability, this class showed its intellectual power by breaking up the party that evening with S-S-OPH-O-O-OMO-R-R-RES! Sophomores! tHic 3Frrslimau JJartij At the beginning of the school year of 1911, there came to fill the ranks of those who had passed on, groups of unorganized individuals bent on seeking knowledge and, incidentally, pleasure. This class, known as the Freshmen, displayed the latter talent to good advantage one evening late in October, at which time a “getting acquainted” party was given. Members of the class had been told to come in groups, representing some certain class of people, and this part of the evening’s entertainment was well carried out, both in costume and acts. The best one was thc“Westerners," who came in true cowboy and cowgirl attire and showed some parts of the hazardous life which they lead. Almost equally interesting were the lords, negroes, and sailors. A short period before the serving of delicious refreshments was spent in playing games and guessing riddles, the former making a good climax in the evening’s entertainment. “A good beginning makes a good ending” and hope that no adverse circumstances will assail our worthy aspirants in their quest of knowledge as well as occasional good times.

Hmjitum in ataunt Imum ©all The annual Washington Reception, held in Mount Vernon Hall in the evening of February 22. proved a pleasant occasion in which the young ladies of the Hall enjoyed their school friends and other friends in the town of Peru, with whom they have become acquainted. Mount Vernon Hall was opened so that the guests might know the real home life, as well as help celebrate Mount Vernon day in keeping with the time, hoping to give pleasure to friends in the patriotic sentiment which prevailed. The comradeship and closer friendships which result from meeting in one’s home life cannot be supplanted by any other social function. There is a common bond existing between hostess and guest when each realizes there is a genuine gratification of the heart’s desire to invite and to receive a relation not easily forgotten. Everywhere present were the national colors, decorations and flags, suggestions of modern home life, and the third floor hall represented a moonlight scene of a snowy path through the woods leading to places dear to the early patriots—the Independence Hall, Old State House, the Wayside Inn and the Postoflicc. In the dining room a short program was presented. The scene was in an open woods; the central figure, an Indian tepee. The suggestive thought pervading the program was the social factors in the territory known as the United States, as they have become a part of the present nation. The attitude of these same factors in the process of transformation. FIRST PART: Scenes from Longfellow’s Hiawatha, beginning with the tribal strifes, the coming of the missionaries and white man and" westward movement of the Indian. SECOND PART: Consisted of the states represented by the state’s flower. In the popular songs of their period was sung the history of our nation's life. MT. VKItXON IIAM,
