 PRIL wwra mmsmss wym WWV2 Easter vacation Guiliclmus went home. It was great sport to meet the natives of Poscyvillc and give them the glad hand when his name had been brought before public notice so many times by means of the Poseyville Clarion. 'This enterprising periodical contained that week the following item: “Guiliclmus Granby came from Peru State Normal last Monday for a week’s visit with his parents, our esteemed towns-peoplc, Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus Granby. Guilly has had a remarkable career in Peru, being a leader in almost every one of the school activities. We predict for him great success in his chosen profession of teaching.” Now wouldn’t that have made you feel proud? But it didn’t affect Guilly in that way. In fact, he was planting potatoes in the old patch when his father handed him the Clarion and lie read it and went right back to work. However, democratic were (iuilly’s tastes in Posey ville, lie was anxious to get back to Peru again and, except for the parting with Popper and Monuner, boarded the train for Peru with little regrets. As the train went on its way more of the old bunch arrived and ere long he was in the old Peru environment once more and happy at the prospect of returning to the old life. Two hundred twenty-two

 :A:R:C:H wwy? wvm vifoaip im ip mk8 ctfS'V' ) V c V ta myra rrm www Next came the Junior-Senior banquet. This is a great event and long-established custom demanded that every knight escort a lady to the banquet hall, or else be condemned to warm a chair in the ignominious stag-row. In desperation Guilielnius resorted to the bill-board but to no avail. Then, happy solution! A bold brigand of the Dormitory proferred her company and it was gladly accepted, you may be sure. The lady now being secured, the next question was how to behave and how to feel comfortable in her presence. Imagine, then, the joy that came to our friend when in hunting thru the card index in the library lie ran across a book entitled, “How to Behave in Polite Society.” With what diligence did he apply himself to the contents of the volume! With what eagerness did he learn to distinguish the salad fork from the table fork and to keep from stirring his coffee with the soup spoon! But a course of two weeks gave him all the data necessary and he now felt confident that he could take his place among The Elite! All the afternoon was spent in preparing for the banquet. He washed his hair until he could do nothing with it. his feet (I was about to say ‘until he could do nothing with them’), shaved, massaged, “unt so wcitcr.” The hours at the banquet were a success. True, he did, in attempting to cut a dill pickle with his fork, shoot a stream of water into the eye of his neighbor across the table, but no offense was meant and certainly none was taken. He used the right fork at the right time, applauded the speeches at the psychological moment, and did the things a banqueter should do. Ttco hundred ttcentyo c

 : A : V Guilielnius had what is termed a “steady” after the banquet, as that friendship did not end there. In May, Guilly’s fancy turned lightly to etc. Everywhere he and Evangelina were seen together. He registered for Domestic Science and she for Manual Training the last quarter, in order to have two hours of being together. By skillful diplomacy V Guilly had tin: registrar change his chapel seat so that he could talk with her in chapel. Our picture shows them with Guilly minus (?) one arm and Evangelina reading to him from “Barriers Burned Away,” by E. P. Rowe. One day in May Guilielnius got two letters. One was from the secretary of the Board of Education at Joncsbcrg, offering him the principalship of the schools. The other was from Ma Granby, enclosing a ten dollar check and asking her darling to come home for the summer. It is hard to tell which letter gave Guilielnius the greater joy. We have given you in our own way an account of the life of Guilielnius in his school year. We wish we could accompany him to Joncsberg to watch his work there. But Professor Guilielnius Granby, dear reader, is yours, and as such we pass him on to you. Two hundred twenty-three
