16 THEBANNER room in which he had geometryw-and Hunked it. llere's where his friend used to tell him dreadful stories about a certain subject called "Latin," and show him for proof a little red mark on his report card which meant "not passingu and a great deal of hard work not to get an- other. And this room? lVhy, it's the old 'flabf' Yes, this is where "'l'oddie" Dowd and "Let'l Ludke used to see which one could blow the place up Hrst and were found out before their drastic deed could be car- ried out. How much better he could walk now. He almost ran down the stairs over to the Senior corridor. Rooms twelve and thirteen, famous because the noted class of 19350 had once occupied them! Room thir- teen! fl'hat's the place where he had worked all one Thursday after- noon, under the careful scrutiny of a teacher, to prepare his Senior speech for the next day. And what a speech that was! llc blushed as he remembered it. Room twelve! He had been told that, that was the room in which future business men and women were receiving their edu- cation, and the only time he hadidared to enter was when he wanted to sharpen his pencil. Ah, the old typing room. He had never forgotten the afternoon that "joel, Hammond, "Nip'i l.ehrmitt, and "Carly" Les- sig had allideclared that they could type and he had wondered what lan- guage they had typed in when he saw the result of their laborious work, This is where the Victrola used to stand o11 which the popular "Stein Songl' in the form of a hfteen cent record was played every afternoon about three o'clock. Out into the corridor again and there before his eyes was the statue of f'XYinged Yictoryf' where several decades of Seniors had practiced their l'almer method penmanship. Now, where could this little door lead to. Nlfhy, the auditorium! XX'hat famous dramatic performances had taken place there, especially the last one, "Dorothy Vernon of liladdon Hall"-which everybody declared could never again be done so well. This is where graduation had taken place. llut why remain with sad memories! Downstairs he went again. Here was the Ugyml' where the star athletes of his class had performed their miraculous feats in basketball. lt wasn't their fault if they lost an occasional game. lt seemed that there was a faint recollection of some sort of cheering! Yes, he remem- bered "lYes,' Osborne as being cheer leader when everyone else wasnlt telling what cheer they wanted and how they wanted it done. lllell, everything was over now. llack again he would go, but not before he had taken' one more look around. The place was dearer to him today than it had ever been. One more lingering look-and he courageously walked out of the building. a new light in his eyes, a firmer tread to his step, and a happy feeling of companionship depicted in his smile. -Il L 1
