The kindheartcd, liberal, magnanimous Seniors have been for the past six months bestowing upon us their pitying, benevolent glances. Since we, as Juniors, regard it as our duty to dispel the gloom of ignorance which enshrouds the minds of our fcllowbcings, whenever the use of our partially developed intellects makes this possible, we humbly beseech the honored, intelligent, folly-free Seniors to accept from their unassuming, unpretentious co-workers this respectfully tendered explanation. Believing, with the poet, that “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men,” we do not aspire to become devoid of ALL foolish thoughts or inclinations, nor to reach that stage of brain ossification and mental stagnation which is the goal of a Senior's ambition.
Having now fulfilled the requirement of duty by this announcement of our attitude towards the Seniors and other possible superiors, and having endeavored to give the public an energetic "boost” towards a clear understanding of our aims and purposes, we will proceed to set forth, in unadorned, straight forward phrases, a few of the events which have brightened our eventful year.
Our deeds arc hardly worthy of mention, but since the munificent upper classmen have experienced some difficulty in spreading their wisdom over all the pages of this invaluable publication, and having no nonsense of their own to exploit, they have accorded us the sublime privilege of supplying that rare element.
Since the "Boston Fathers” thought it no disgrace to follow the footsteps of a calf, we raised no dissenting voice when it was decreed that we have a picnic and follow the trodden path down Standley Hill. Nor did we become herbivorous and dine on vegetables alone. Yards of plump "weenies,” dozens of substantial sandwiches, pyramids of crisp cookies, and jugs of sparkling apple cider served to sustain life within our care-oppressed bodies. Being Juniors, of course we couldn't “come home voting,” so we voiced our emotions by agreeing that the function had exceeded our most sanguine expectations.
When the football season opened, we, with childlike curiosity, purchased those magic fragments of red paper and found ourselves precipitated to the bottom of the hill just east of the main building. Because of our regular attendance and generous patronage, we were given a pennant. Though somewhat awed by this bestowal, we meekly accepted the gift.
It has been averred that the class party was arranged for the dispelling of the homesick feeling which accompanies the amateur student. We beg the privilege of refuting this gross misstatement. Such an assertion docs our gallant superiors an insufferable wrong. I heir devotion could not have been more constant. Even when we attempted to have a party without disturbing them in their pursuit of knowledge, they hastily left the Library and even became so terrified at the possibility of several of our classmates becoming afflicted with consumption, that then and there did they abduct several of our number and convey them to a well ventilated structure. The fresh air and their own vocal gymnastics soon restored the stricken ones to their normal health and they returned to the citadel of the Juniors.
Such constant devotion deserves unbounded appreciation and our attitude towards our much proclaimed, adjective-laden predecessors will ever be one of respect and veneration.
