As we look back on the year 1955-54 we remember many and various thingsf
classes, football games, chapel, Dial meetings, dances. Most appropriately is the motto
of Tower Hill malta bane farlfzwumany things well done"-for Tower Hill indeed
offers a broad program including many various aspects and into each of these many
aspects brings its excellence and high standard. Throughout these many phases of
school life we notice certain things peculiar to Tower Hill-little things which dis-
tinguish Tower Hill from any other sschool and which mean Tower Hill to us. Let
us now turn our minds back on the past year and recall what it has held for us.
We had all been awaiting the morning of September 14th with a certain mixture
of anticipation and dread-anticipation of activities soon to be in full swing and dread
of losing our cherished freedom to sleep late in the morning and to lounge in the
summer sun all day. As we walked into chapel that morning we were suddenly very
glad to be there, greeting our old friends all sun-burned and smiling, some of whom we

became scenes of great activityg Upper School

Get-Acquainted Danceg and soon the school
year was in full swing.
The school day, routine as it was, was never
without its share of excitement, humor, and
surprises. Arriving at Tower Hill in the morn-

of a large crowd gathered on the front steps
and a long line of cars stretched along 17th
Street and Tower Road. When the clock on
the Tower pointed to 8:15 the steps were hur-

side and upstairs. Once or twice a month we
were apprehended in our. progress by a loyal
Social Service Committeeman who reminded
us that we were three months behind in our
pledge and did not seem convinced when we
assured him that we would be sure not to for-
get the money tomorrow.
At 8:30 the first chapel bell rang, and un-

auditorium. Four or five minutes later the
Senior Room door would fly open and 16 in-
dividuals would run the marathon in an ef-
fort to get into their seats before the doors
