The Annual Rush was held on September 8. In the morning the
Frosh entertained the Student Body with many stunts that proved
quite embarrassing to the Froeh. The parade was then held, and the
Freshmen preceded doing the hula in the middle of Main Street. In
the afternoon the poor Froeh lost the Rush to the older and more
experienced Sophomores. The day was cllmaxed with a dance given
for the Freshmen by the Upperclaesmen.
