Crawford saw to it that each name fitted the person so placarded, and the latter was to guess his profession from the hints and conversation of his friends.
A unique spelling contest proved highly exciting to the. onlookers as well as the participants, and Dean Rouse was constantly obliged to command silence. There were 26 on a side, each one representing a letter of the alphabet, and as Mrs. Crawford pronounced the words, each side endeavored to be the first to juggle the letters into place.
Miss Koch then took charge of the Grand March, which was very creditably completed, due to her excellent leadership. Following this we were divided into groups of sixteen, each group forming a circle, and played games under the supervision of Miss Koch. The games included folk dances and those of educative value which we might use as teachers. We were mighty glad to be seated for refreshments after our strenuous exercise; and it seemed rather queer, yet pleasant, too, to be so delightfully served by our highly esteemed teachers.
As a fitting conclusion to the good time, two flashlights were taken of the entire company, after which we yelled for our teachers and our school, sang the color song, and went home.

“Arc you going to the ‘dorm’ party Saturday evening?" asked a Sr. of a certain Jr. “Sure,” was the reply. "This is the 011c opportunity outside of shirt-tail parades, that 1 have of going to the dorm, and most assuredly I’ll embrace it.”
This Jr. did not find himself alone in representing the male section of his class for besides the Jr. boys, there were the upper classmen also, with expectant and gleaming faces. Of course, the strangeness of the place, which had taken on a gala-day attire—flowers, red decorations and subdued lights—had much to do as to the radiant faces, but the thrill of realizing that you arc a guest at a Ladies’ Dorm—ahem!—is enough to make anyone’s countenance glow like old Sol.
Talk about a reception! Miss Cleland and her girls certainly did “receive.” I11 the reception line were “Cassius" who is “our boy" in dorm parlance, Miss Cleland, Miss Burgess, and Miss Gunderson. From here the guests were escorted to the dining room which had been cleared of tables and other unnecessary “impedimenta.” Here such games as charades, “Slide, Kelly Slide,” “Spell Down,” and similar games interested the ichabods. Pres. Hayes succeeded in suggesting the most interesting charade. This is it! Pin a piece of paper with the word “sage" on it. below the knee, which represents “sausage bologna.”
Refreshments consisted of ice cream, home-made candy, and wafers. Partners were secured through the matching of red and green bells. It is to be doubted if Solomon himself could have recognized some of the “matchings” as bells, but it turned out alright, as those who failed to match had the privilege of going out in the kitchen and "eating with the cooks." It appeared that some of the guests were very fond of eggs, as such articles were found on the persons of Mr. Long and Mr. Klima.

Giving “15 Rahs” for Miss Clcland and the girls, and assuring them that they would “come again” at a future time (that is some of them), the boys made their way home, wearily but happily satisfied as far as mere curiosity was concerned.

You may talk of your “swell times,” of your enjoyable evenings, but when it comes to downright fun and joviality a “stag party" is par excellence.
Mr. Janda, of football fame, made a few feeble remarks one morning that served as an announcement, and the invitation was received with great joy. 1 lie big event occurred one sunny afternoon following football practice, which made it possible for gridiron aspirants to attend.
After a few remarks by Mr. Lcfler, stating the place the Y. M. C. A. occupies in a school and how anxious the local organization was of having every man in school identify himself with it, the “eats" were attacked. Before this, however, a contest between the leanest professor. Mr. Hoyt, and the fattest. Mr. Howie, was held, which consisted of devouring one-half of a melon. The former won easily. As soon as this was over the real work of disposing of the load of melons began in earnest and by each one doing his part, efficiently and quickly, the job was soon completed.
Of all the events of the year none has been more enjoyable or more appreciated than the reception given on April 10th in the Trainers Building by the High School students in honor of the High School teachers.
The reception was held in two of the recitation rooms which were beautifully decorated—one in the High School colors, the other in the Senior colors. The success of the evening was largely due to the excellent and well organized plans for entertainment. Each person, upon entering, was given a pennant bearing the name of one of the four classes of the school. After the guests had gathered they were asked to separate into these different classes. Each class was then asked to organize and be prepared to take part in inter-class contests. A lively interest and enthusiasm was actuated by reason of the friendly rivalry between the groups.
During the course of the evening refreshments were served. The High School students proved to be such royal entertainers that the guests failed to depart until after the lights had gone out, and the leave-takings were carried on by candle-light.

Many of 11s who were not Juniors were curious to know the reason of Professor Beck’s calling ever and anon a particular group of people to meet him in the gymnasium. But one day each Senior received the following note: “The Junior class of the Peru State Normal requests your presence at the Junior-Senior banquet, Friday evening, March 26th, 1915, at 8:00 P. M.. Chapel.” And then the mystery was cleared.
