Never docs one see so much gallantry and chivalry displayed on the part of the boys for about two weeks prior to the big event. Some resorted to the most desperate tactics to “land that date.” Captain Long and Louis Kilzer broke all traditions of this institution by each securing a lovely damsel for the swell affair.
The Juniors were a decidedly busy and laboriously-looking lot on Friday. One might see them emerge from the “gym” with cotton clinging to their apparel and they appeared more like those living in Dixieland, returning from the cotton fields.
The evening of March 26th was beautiful, and before 8 o’clock the iclia-bods had congregated in the chapel and were waiting for the signal to march. This soon came, and slowly and with much dignity the procession advanced into the gymnasium. What a change had taken place! We felt we couldn’t believe our senses. The major and central portion of the room had been enclosed with a wall of cotton and this had a ceiling of pennants also made of cotton. The whole appeared much like an enchanted palace, beautifully attired for some great festival.
The menu was as follows:
Grape Fruit Wafers
Roast Pork Brown Sauce Baked Potatoes Creamed Peas in Timbales
Parkerhousc Rolls Lemon Jelly •
Waldorf Salad Nutbread Sandwiches Ice Cream White Cake
Mints Coffee Nuts
While partaking of this excellent and wholesome repast, the orchestra, under the leadership of Miss Carpenter, treated the assembled banqueters to most rapturous music.
The toast list was a long one. but the toasts were spicy, characteristic, and worth while, that those who responded had rapt attention throughout. Mr. Joe Boyd was Master of Ceremonies while Mr. Clyde Leece was toastmaster. The following toasts were responded to:
“Cares” . . . Mr. Huston
“Rowing” . Prof. F. C. Smith
“Yesterdays” . . Miss Fay
“Suppose” . . . Prof. Beck
“Triumphs” . Miss Jimcrson
“Altruism” . . Dean Rouse
“Loyalty” . . .Mr. Bloss
“Service” . . . Pres. Hayes
At the midnight hour, “The Pale Blue and the White” was sung, and with that came to a close the most formal, enjoyable, and long-to-be-remcm-bered event of the school year.

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.
