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.
A Junior—a task—and a willing “I’ll try." Encouragement brings to those who go by.

Altho mv heart abounds with love.
I cannot bring myself to like The Junior, who to shorten things, Remarks that lie is taking "Psych.”
Nor can 1 greet with fond regard,
Or love that Freshman very much, Who, splendid in his verdant garb, Complains of his required “Dutch.”
The Senior, who should be mature.
Is yet, I think, about as bad.
Who shies away from longer words.
And calls his morning subject “Ad.”
I'he shallow Soph’morcs, lank and green, Most anything we’d pardon them. Their only sin that’s unredeemed
Is when they boldly speak of “Cliem.”
This "for-short” craze has gone too far.
I fear we’ve mist the proper track.
I tremble lest the teaching corps Will be referred to as the “Fac."
