E ENTERED our eventful Freshman year with our heads
slightly swelled and took the leap from the down stairs
up with some of the air of a conqueror. Rat week rolled
around, and in this year of '29 the Freshmen had their
last Rat parade. After this heart-rending jolt to our delicate pride we
calmed down so far as to choose the meek lily of the valley for our class
flower. Wfe elected class officers: President, Dick Crockett, Vice-Presiden t,
Flora Mae Haislip, Secretary, Nancy Bushong, Treasurer, Alfred Porter.
Then we settled down to intensive study and dreamed of the day when we
would be Sophomores.
After we completed our long and hard march from Freshmanville to
Sopllomoretown we found hfty-two of our marchers were with us. Skirts
were a little longer fbutterlly skirts in large numbersj , also bobbed hair was
a feature among the girls. Most boys now Wore long trousers. VVe chose
our class ofhcers: President, Ernest Lyons, Vice-President, Mary Ellen
Wlilliams, Secretary and Treasurer, Aulden Lemons. Again we assumed
a very superior air, and took time and particular care to make things rough
for the Freshnien. Those first few months passed quickly and we were
shocked to hnd examinations so near. After seeing our examination grades
we, that is most of us, began some real study, and didn't have much time to

XN7e had marched a long way by now and stopped to consider our suc-
cesses and failures. Surely we were too far up the road for any turning back
or stumbling, even though Geometry, Bookkeeping and other terrors
appeared before our bewildered eyes, and some classmates ran around in a
panic trying to get twelve units or squeeze in an extra subj ect. After getting
thoroughly adjusted to our new position we elected class off1cers:President,
Roy Duncan, Vice-President, Frances Coleman, Secretary and Treasurer,
Mary Ellen Vtfilliams. Then came the selecting of rings and pins. By
March we were all dreaming of being Seniors and practicing how to be

Together we've been climbing
A hill which seems so high,
Eager eyes itpon the smnniit
Where the hill top meets the sky.
Each upward step brings nearer
The goalfor which we yearn,
TfVhile backwards the beginning
Seems just around the turn.
But when we reach the smmnit
Above the plains we've passed,
A region new will greet ns-
Vistas nntrod and vast.
Forgetting past achieeeinent
PVith hearts and minds athrill,
Enchanted by this vision,
TfVe'll climb the higher hill.
Each hill top which we snrinonnt
Reveals another higherg
There is no limit fixed
For souls who dare aspire.

Seniors at last! And our long march almost finished. In chapel we
repose in calm dignity Con the front rowsl and feel the weight of the world
on our shoulders. This is a year of important eventsw-Oriole,cards, invita-
tions, no end of plays and bake salesg last but not least the prized diploma.
We fought the election of Roosevelt and Hoover on the floor of' our Senior
room, the Democrats coming out victorious, In our own private election
We named Mildred Brockmeyer President, Kathleen Hurd Vice-President
and DuVal Seagle Secretary and Treasurer. With the help and advice of
Mrs. Hall we have succeeded in matters undertaken by the class. The time
and patience given to The Oriole by Miss Pugh is not to be overlooked. And
all the Seniors feel deeply indebted to our principal and faculty for the help-
ful guidance rendered for the last four years. Not all the classmates that
started on this journey in '29 are still with us, and we have added new
friends each year. Our plans and dates for graduation have been made:
Baccalaureate Sermon, May 28thg Senior Class Play, june lstg and Com-
mencement, june Znd. This year of '33 is one that will be remembered
many years hence.
