SENIOR HISTORY CHAPTER I— " FRESHMEN” O N THE first day of the ninth month, nineteen hundred and twenty-one, we, a band of fifty, entered what is known as a High School Career. In the grades we had been accustomed to being looked up to at least by the ones lower than we. But now it seemed as though e -eryone looked down on us and called us " Freshies.” It took us nearly all of the nine months to get over the feeling of self-consciousness that we felt when anyone so much as glanced our way. Of course, e -erything the Seniors did we tried to do also but usually got the worst of it. By the time school closed, however, we were beginning to breathe a bit more freely. Also most of us had managed to get our hair bobbed, but what was the use — the Seniors didn’t e en laugh at us any more. Frankly we had ceased to exist so far as they were concerned. And so we ciuietly and peacefully took our finals and most of us became Sopho- mores. CHAPTER II— " SOPHOMORES” After three short months of acation, we entered our second year of high school. Now our time had come, we thought, when we could make fun of the freshmen. But before this fun had gotten started good one of the Seniors said: " They are neither man nor woman. They are neither brute nor human — They are Sophs.” So you see e en though we were one step farther toward suc- cess it seemed until we gained success we would be looked down upon. I ' he subjects being harder, they took most of our time. Com- mencement finally came and with more attention paid us than last year, we became Juniors. CHAPTER HI— " JUNIORS” This having been willed to us by last year’s Juniors, we were true to our name " Jolly Juniors.” We made the year a jolly one — perhaps too jolly for some of our teachers.

LENIS HART “None but himself can be his parallel " Treasurer Senior Class; Associate Busi- ness Manager Oriole. It is literally true that no one could have taken Lenis’ place in the Class. His good humor is almost proverbial; we’ve never seen him even a bit ruf- fled in all the four years or more that we have known him and that’s saying a lot, considering all the ups and downs of the Class. THEODORE R. HALL “For rhetoric he could not ope His mouth, but out there flew a trope.” Treasurer Class ’22; Business Manager Oriole. “Eschew all conglomerations of flatulent garrulity and avoid all poly- syllabic profundity.’’ This is Theo- dore’s way of saying, “Speak plainly and naturally.’’ When the Class grows weary of cross-word puzzles there is always Theodore to puzzle over. We can almost understand him now —at times! And argue — well he can prove that Hamlet was either sane or insane and prove each conclusively. This is an important item for he intends to become a statesman. 31

mid-term exams arri -ed. Could it be possible we had just fooled away the first half of the year? First one teacher and then another would tell us that we must get down to work if we expected to be seniors. Finally we realized that though it was all right to have fun we must study also. Some of our class- mates failed to realize this and when the final exams came — alas! Only twenty-five were allowed to be called, what we had worked so hard all through high school to reach — Seniors. CHAPTER I ’— “SEXIORS” Our last year has been a busy one. Some folks think Sen- iors haven’t anything to do. We thought so once, but it would keep anyone busy trying to take full ad ' antage of our one or two pri ' ileges and wondering how on earth we could acquire one more at least. Then there’s our annual that we must give much attention to and try to make it the best ever published. Now let us stop a minute and think. Is this honor of being a Senior really as great as it seems? There’s a sadness as well as gladness, for your school days are the happiest days of your life. And now to think of leaving all your dear class-mates and teachers who have worked so faithfully with you for four long years, and also to our principal must be gi ' en some credit for our Class being just exactly what it is. But I think our memory will not let us forget our friends in P. H. S., even though it did let us forget our studies at times. James Cummings, ’25. 33
