time was spent in games, then we partook of a delicious lunch. The toasts were impromptu and suited to the occasion. We, then practised our yells until sure we could give them well in chapel, and finally made our way back to Peru, singing as we proceeded. Our class has taken an active part in all school activities. The V. V. C. A.. Y. M. C. A.. X. C. A., and Episcopal Guild, the Philomathean and Everett Societies. and the chorus, all are enthusiastically supported by the Juniors. The band and the glee clubs, too. claim many members from our number. In our class work we have maintained the standard set by our predecessors —no small task. The debates in January proved that a goodly share of the eloquence and ability of the school belongs to members of our class. These qualities won places for Merritt Chaffee, Joe Boyd, Louis Chard and Clyde Leece, on the team for the interclass debate. The Juniors have shown good form in athletics as well as in other interests. In the football conflict with the noble Seniors, a hot contest was waged. Although the result was a tie with no score for either side, the pigskin was in Senior territory most of the time. Personal mention can hardly be made, but each player brought credit to the class. The Varsity team, too. was partially composed of Juniors, having on the line-up such notable characters as Ralston. Long, Houston, McLean, Earl Haney and Bell. With the advent of the basketball season the Juniors brought forth a victory over their elders through the efficient work of Pell. II. Amende. Boyd, and H. and R. Towle. On the Normal basket-ball team the Juniors were strongly in evidence with Long, Metzger, Houston and Schneider, and had there been another Junior in the team, the Wesleyan game might have been ours. Among those who represented our class in baseball were Metzger, Bell. Long. Blankinship. Lynn. Schneider, Overton. R. Towle and Houston. Our girls’ record in athletics has not equalled that of the boys’ seeing that the Senior girls defeated us rather severely in basket-ball. Put then we must have an occasional defeat in order that we may more fully appreciate our numerous victories. However, our indoor baseball team was exceedingly strong and showed marked ability in all games. We feel proud of our athletic achievements and if our successors attain like success we shall indeed have formidable opponents in the interclass games of next year. It is with sincere wishes of success for those ambitious students who will follow after us that we pass on. making room for them and going a step nearer our own goal. We bear the palm of victory As from the class we go. And next year as worthy Seniors We’ll do the same, we know. Sincty-slx A Junior—a task—and a willing “I’ll try." Encouragement brings to those who go by.

Their territory is bounded on the north by teaching plans, on the east by conferences, on the south by fear concerning future positions, and on the west by required studies which they neglected in their Junior year. The second group is called Sophomores, and of them and their achievements one of their own number will write. Likewise, it may be spoken concerning the Freshmen. On the borders of their land dwell the tribes of Trainers. Specials and Preparatories. The fourth and greatest of these divisions is called Juniors. Of all these the Juniors are the bravest and the wisest. Their territory is bounded on the north by the mountain Psychology, very high and steep, on the cast bv the river Junior English, the widest and most treacherous of rivers, on the south by Botany Lab., and on the west by the dark forests of Observation and Methods. Tales of their prowess will be handed down through the ages, the following being a modest account of their chief accomplishments. One hundred and sixty Juniors, aided and advised by Professor Beck, met at the beginning of this school year to perfect the organization of their class. It was hard to choose from the number of worthy candidates for president, but Wm. Houston was finally elected. Then his assistant executives were chosen: Vergil Lehr as vice president; Blanche Jimmerson. secretary; and Frank Haney, treasurer. These officers have faithfully and ably directed the activities of the Juniors during the year. Professor Beck has been truly a friend to us throughout, and the class feels that it must do well to be worthy of its adviser. Our first task was to get acquainted with each other. On this evening of October ist, after lessons were laid aside, we assembled before the chapel and wended our way over the hills to the grove near the Juanita Fruit Farm. Some Xincty-flvc
