the Faculty and the town police, half the senior class lurked for two hours on the parkway, but the townies never got past the corner drug store. The Fall Dance came around, but unfor- tunately few people noticed its presence until afterwards. lVlr. Irving had at one time announced that it would be cancelled, because of lack of interest, but perhaps much of the failure of the dance might be attributed to the thinness of our pocket books. When Thanksgiving came around. we sent in a new petition to the Faculty for an extended vacation, but they counter- ed adroitlyg in a word they said no. which cryptic statement they accompanied with an editorial to the Exonian, saying that they were awfully sorry, really they were.

The Stompers. a Dixieland outfit that sprouted from the Royal Exonians, boasted several seniors blasting out their music. March ll, the fateful day, arrived, the day that would decide our fates. We sweated for six hours over mystic symbols and impossible problems, thrashing our way through the college boards, But the day ended at last.
