School was scheduled to start on Thursday, September 7th; but, alas! on a beautiful August morning, just one week beforehand, huge, billowy clouds of smoke drifted over the city. Yes, smoke, rising originally from the northeastern portion of our old Alma Mater. And now, for the first time, we wish to unfold to you the real cause of the 1 1 H. S. lire, which did ap- proximately $5,000 damages. Just under the cornice, outside an upstairs window in the north- eastern portion of this fair building of ours, there was a little hornets’ nest.
