THE ORIOLE c$ Page 35 Sept. 7 — Entered school again as a Sophomore. The Freshmen seemed exceedingly juvenile. Nov. 12 — Walked to school. Noticed Lucille Umberger’s shorn locks — she quietly weeping on back seat. Feb. 8 — To the Parish House; saw the basketball girls win the State championship. I said to myself “Hooray!” Margaret Bopp distinguished herself. March 6 — To the second floor of Tilson’s store, where the Sopho- mores gave the Juniors a party. Had a good time, but my carriage arrived much too early. May 22 — Attended commencement exercises. Miss Wygal in laven- der presided at the piano. Sept. 6 — Juniors — Today was enrolled as a Junior and called an upper classman which pleased me much. Miss Finks had us in charge and took our names. Oct. 11 — To school, and received Literary Digest, which made me feel quite proud, never having read the jokes before. Several times I heard Colleen Seagle, Bascom Owen, and William Stull convulsed with mirth. Dec. 18 — To school in Mr. Brugh’s car and today he announced that his health was failing and he would have to leave school. Sarah Spence and gnes Groseclose were not the only ones using their handkerchiefs. It was indeed a sad time. I wonder who will take Mr. Brugh ' s place! Jan. 9 — To school, and it was announced that Mr. Eckman had been appointed principal which pleased us exceedingly. Jan. 16 — Walked to school today and struggled most gallantly with geometry. It is whispered that Herman O’Dell, Thomas Douthat and Bud Crockett are the so called shining stars in this subject. Feb. 8 — To the Parish House and a boys’ basketball game. The boys lost, but it seems they lose every time, so it does not cause surprise any more,

CLASS HISTORY THE ORIOLE Page 34 Jfi- Sept. 7 — Today I was entered in Pulaski High School. Methought it a strange place, but opened my eyes and observed close- ly. I was enrolled as a Freshman but expect to be a Sophomore when the term is up. Sept. 14 — Today a club was begun and named the “Globe Trotters” and we also had our pictures taken in trousers. I heard somebody remark that we looked very well and I thought so too. After we had our pictures snapped, it seemed the devil entered into us because we ran away in John Henry Calfee’s car. I can never remember when I was so frightened before. I kept telling myself it was a dream, but all for no use. Oct. 3 — To school in the Principal’s car and my new dress. I felt quite proud but tried to keep it hidden. In the period after recess Mr. Eckman sat down on a chair on which had been placed a neat wad of gum. He would not have been annoyed if the gum had not been pink. He caused us to remain after school, but the source of the gum was not discovered. Nov. 10 — Today rode to school in a truck, and we ate five gallons of pickles and a bottle of olives. They gave me the most amazing stomach trouble I have yet known. Mary Crowder and Zella Thompson were also peculiarly affected. Dec. 16 — I noticed today that Sam Pillsbury became very much enamored of Lucille Umberger’s curls to the extent that the expression on his face betrayed an inward sickness and he was unable to concentrate on his algebra. Jan. 3 — Today being bright and sunny, Annie Powell and Ralph Stambaugh played hooky. I expect they will have an interesting interview with Mr. Brugh on the morrow. May 22 — Attended commencement exercises. Mr. Ed Howard presented the diplomas. The graduation class was bravely arrayed in caps and gowns and made a very scholastic appearance withal. Methought they looked disturbed in mind.

If Page 36 Js- THE O R IOLE March 13 — To school, and after enumerating my subjects 1 believe Latin is the hardest. Miss Mitchell, it seems, puts us to work, although 1 believe I have learned a little Latin. May 22 — To school, and received my report. It seems school is over and methought it high time. Sept. 7 — Seniors! To Mr. Farthing’s studio and had my picture taken, but was much disappointed with the result, it not being an excellent likeness. But I especially admired Daisy Douthat and Mildred Hall’s pictures. Oct. 17- It seems I am a Senior and must, therefore, try to assume dignity, but it is hard. Kathleen and Gladys Lindsay do it very well. Nov. 16 — Today noticed Wesley Johnson and Miss Woodyard in light conversation. Dec. 8 — To school and we are at work on The Oriole. Miss Finks is sponsor and Colleen Seagle editor. Two of our chief pastimes as seniors are having our pictures taken and bringing money for divers things. But I have been taught differently. Jan. 15 — To school and took exams. Methought myself lucky to pass any of them. It was discussed before about having physical education in this school and now we have it. Like it exceedingly. Irene Harman, perchance, is especi- ally graceful. Feb. 28 — To the Jefferson School and saw a play, “See You Later ” Methought it very good. It was all home talent and there were some very pleasing songs. Dec. 26 — P. S. — Miss Mitchell is now Mrs. Allison to the surprise of the school. Never thought they would marry. Feb. 9 — It was announced today that there would be a “Rat " Week. Feel sorry for the “Rats,” but do not intend to harm them. March 18 — Mrs. Allison was in an automobile accident and harmed her ankle. She will not be able to come to school for a long while it was stated.
