THE ORIOLE 41 She was loved by all of us and is greatly missed because of her personal worth and charm. Our class has also been diminish- ed by the marriage of one of our members, by others stopping school, and still others were sent back to repeat the first year because they loved it so that their minds could work “nowhere else but there.” Our class has stood as one of the best in all phases of school life. We have displayed our talent especially in the literary programs. Scarcely a thing that we have attempted to do has failed and whenever the Program Committee was in need of a chorus they always called on the “Sophs.” You should have heard how we rendered it! Probably our hardest struggle this year has been with “Caesar’s Gallic Wars” in Latin, and quadratics and other horrors in Algebra. W e are now half way up the mountain; we can almost see “Senior Knob,” and although we are wearied and tired under the burden of our lessons we still love P. H. S., and expect to meet again next fall in the Junior year. Na n nette Livi ngsto n, ’ 2 ? .

40 THE ORIOLE ophomorr ifitory X T WAS in the year 1910 that we “quit " the plains of the grammar grades and started to climb the moun- tain leading to “Senior Knob.” During our long years in the lower grades our class was more or less divided — some being in different grades, others in different schools, and even when we became Freshmen it was necessary for our class to be divided into two sections. As nature would have it, there were many rivalries between the two sections of the first year, each vying with the other to climb a little higher up the mountain. As a school we were under the care of Pro- fessor Y. D. Gresham. The high school teachers were, Miss Thomas, Miss Allen, Miss Jordan, Mr. Malcolmson, and Mr. Tate. The Latin class in our section was very queerlv divided. It was divided into two classes: one, “The Round Dozen,” which consisted of twelve of the best members of the class, the other, “The Bob Tail Class,” consisting of those who were not so quick to take in the rules of Latin grammar. The other section was taught by a different teacher, Miss Allen. When we first started to climb the mountain our worst falls were over the briers and bushes of Algebra and Latin. But as we climbed on up and applied ourselves more diligently we soon became familiar with X, Y, and Z, and we really came to enjoy our Latin classes. Perhaps when we think of the rude cabins and school- houses in which our forefathers spent their school days we can more readily appreciate our own new school building, for in the history of our school life we have never been lacking in bodily comforts and efficient teachers. The members of the Freshman class took a very active part in the commencement exercises at the end of the year, there being a good representation of Freshmen in the choruses, and among the medals given two were won by members of our class. After three months holiday we met again on September 1, 1920. Now, that our two Freshmen classes came together as a single body — and as Sophomores — we banished all rivalries and were bound together by ties of friendship. During the va- cation months we lost one of our fellow students, Mabel Dalton.

42 THE ORIOLE $hp § npluimorr (Elasfi The best bunch under the sun Is the Sophomore Class of twenty-one. There are tall ones, fat ones, all sorts and sizes, A perfectly angelic class; among them no vices. Our teachers all love us, and we love them too; We always surprise them by the good work we can do. Miss Watts loves us as we in deportment shine, For no one makes below ninety-nine! We are Miss Thomas’s star history class, And there’s not a doubt but that we’ll all pass. Mr. Elliott is amazed at our science knowledge; He classes us with a “number one college.” Mr. Smith says ’ tis wonderful, the Latin we get, And no one has missed a question — as yet. You should see what mathematicians we are! Among other classes we shine like a star. We are taught by Miss Finks the most correct word, So that in company we can always be heard. As I have said — and it can plainly be seen — We are a very studious class, and in no manner green. We invite you, my friends, to visit our school And see how perfectly we keep every rule. Minnie Pierce, ' 22.
