X HA " E never been quite able to understand why they call these things histories. Real, honest to goodness history is interesting, in parts at least, and deals with something which was destined to shape the future of the country, but somehow I am not able to comprehend the trials and tribulations of the Junior Class shaping the destiny of anything — except report cards. As no annual seems complete without one, however, I will endeavor to “make history.” By dint of hard labor or good luck on our part the sev ' enth grade was deprived of a number of good pupils in the fall of 1922. But what was the grammar grades’ loss was the high school’s gain as any loyal Junior can testify. We had always heard that the first year was a “cinch,” the second year a little harder than anything that we had ever tackled, and the third year just a little worse than that. Some have found this report true; others, the greater number, seem to think that one year was just as bad as the other; while a few, greatly in the minority, have considered every year quite easy. But e eryone has accomplished something, for it takes hard work to earn a reputation for being the “worst class in school.” Aside from this one main accomplishment we have acciuired quite an enviable record in scholastic, athletic, and social matters. Wisely leaving the first for discussion among the faculty, I will attempt to enlighten you as to our accomplishments in the last two mentioned. Taking athletics first, you will find by a close obser ' ation of this copy of The Oriole that our class was very well represented on the football field as well as on the bas- ketball court. All the teachers will be able to attest to our athletic prowess in class. Take for instance our aptness for throwing erasers. Considering the social side of school life you will find that we are very prominent there also. This will remind the Seniors of a very delightful Hallowe’en evening. What could be nicer than a party given by the Juniors? If you doubt my veracity just ask the Seniors. It seems to be the usual thing to finish a Junior Class history with a statement of their sincere wish to become Seniors. We will be conventional and state the same thing only we wish to add a hope to graduate — eventually. But the historian of next year’s Senior Class can express more clearly than I, our ambitions in our own edition of The Oriole. Mary D. Draper, ’26. 48

Ruth Jackson is little in size, l)Ut small i3eoi)le are often c]uite wise. Lena Bones, our best sport, is in for athletics, no matter the sort. Blanche ’hitaker, we like her so much, she slips through so easy, is ne -er “in Dutch.’’ Sherwood X’aughan is one of our best, but then, you know, so are the rest. Of course you ha e heard of Jtidson Harris; do not speak to him often or he’ll be embarrassed. Kathleen Hurst has the cross-word puzzle craze; she has work- ed them so much we are all in a daze. ’e all have great hopes for our “Junior Class Baby;’’ Hurst Owen will fulhll them too, maybe. Clara Nelson is certainly all right; she knows her lessons without studying all night. Next in line is Charlie Gatewood ; he plays tricks on the teach- ers no one else ever could. Mary Boyd, our star who is never outclassed; on French she cannot be surpassed. Wdlliam Thomas, alias “Tom Toddy, ’’is frequently described as all head, no body. Ansell Derrick, the brightest of boys, can study and learn without making much noise. So timid and shy is Inez Weeks that the whole room jumps whenever she speaks. Dean Creger is really so witty, that we cannot have him always is really a pity. Carson Dalton, next in the row, has proved to us that know- ledge can grow. Elva Runion is our new class-mate; her history further I am unable to relate. Another new member is David Kent ; not much time with us has he spent. After reading about us, I am sure you have a “hunch’’ that this Junior room is surely some “bunch.’’ Mary Fitzhugh, ’26. 47
