JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
On a bright day last fall we entered school
as sophisticated juniors. Knowing there was
a lot to be done by us in the ensuing year,
we tried to get right down to business the
Hrst thing. We elected the following people
for class officers: President, Vernon Chand-
ler, Vice-President, George Story, Secretary,
Jean McKay, Treasurer, Catherine Burton,
and Class Advisor, Miss Deeley.
In order to raise money for publishing the
junior Liberty we held a movie, sold pencils,
candy and V pins. At Christmas time we took
orders for Christmas candy.
The movie we held was quite a success. It
was "Galloping Romeo," which featured
At Christmas time we held a dance at the
Town Hall which was also a success.
Of the 25 members of the junior class
there were two who left and the other 23
have been with us since our Freshman year.
In behalf of the junior class I wish to
thank Miss Deeley for her untiring efforts in
all activities for the class, and we hope to
have her with us again next year.

What do you suppose? The other day a
Mrs. Rexford Touse came into my beauty
salon for a permanent and as usual we began
to visit and recognizing the name I asked her
where she came from and she told me-New
York City. And he came from a small village
in New York State by the name of Vernon.
As we were in the same class in school at
Vernon, I asked about him. She told me they
had a lovely family, that he has a good prac-
tice in law, and is making a very good salary.
After I had closed my salon for the night,
we went to the "Swankee Hotel" here and
hearing a girl's laughter I recognized it to be
the former Jean Taylor, who is now a singer
with one of the best orchestras in the United
States. She sat down at our table and we had
a long visit about our old classmates. I for-
got to tell you it was Miles Fitch leading the
band with which jean travels. Edward Peters
is the drummer.
She said Lurene Burton and Mary Kitchen
are still old maid schoolteachers. Mildred
Turk is becoming a famous artist in Vienna.
Margaret Krug and Marion Houck are
personal secretaries to some of the "big
shots" in Washington.
Adolph Diehl has a job in one of the cities
upstate and plays for barn dances.
Frank Bellinger bought the Henry Ford
businesses and is now racking his brains to
see how Ford kept the cars together.
Robert Brown is now married and sup-
porting his wife and family by coaching the
New York Giants. Fred Martin is coaching
basketball at Springfield College.
Robert Samson is running a large farm
and supplying over half of New York City
with milk and dairy products.
I suppose you know Ward Champney is
head of the Standard Oil Company. Who
should know better?
I hope you like your new job teaching
Home Economics. I must close now and get
to my beauty parlor.

GLEE CLUB HISTORY
Last fall Mrs. Butler called a meeting of
our Glee Club at which 44 responded. We
elected the following officers: President,
Mary McKay, Vice-President, Betty Bur-
leigh, Treasurer, Susanna Houck, and Secre-
tary, Alice Black.
We had a Halloween party at Mrs. But-
ler's home and almost everyone attended and
had a lovely time.
The Glee Club held a bake sale at Kitson's
store on the seventeenth of November at
which we made 351250, which went toward
buying new music.
At present the boys are practising with us
for the June Music Festival which is to be
held at the Fair Grounds.
Now, in behalf of the Glee Club, I wish
to express our thanks and appreciation to
Mrs. Butler for her willing work with us.

28 JUNIOR LIBERTY
The year had gloomily begun
For Willie Weeks, a poor man's Sun.
He was beset with bill and dun
And he had very little Mon.
"This cash," said he, "will pay my dues,
I have nothing here but ones and Tueff'
A bright thought struck him and he said,
"The rich Miss Goldrocks I'll Wed."
But when he paid his count to her,
She lisped but firmly said, "No, Tlazzrf'
"Alas," said he, 'lthen I must die,
I'm done! I'll drown! I'll burn! I'll Fri."

Last year's orchestra, under the leadership
of Mrs. Butler, has three new members. They
are Clarence Mason, Helen Schleicher, and
Ann O,Neil. This adds two to the violin sec-
tion and one to the trombone section.
The latter part of the year was spent in
practicing for the Music Festival, at which
time the orchestra, combined with those of
the other schools of the Madison-Oneida
League, played. "The Oracle", "Pomp and
Circumstancen, and "Londonderry Air" were
three of the four numbers presented. On sev-
eral other occasions throughout the year the
orchestra has presented programs.
The present orchestra has enjoyed the ad-
vantage of a larger variety of music than
that of the previous year. This is partially due
again to the Music Festival to be held in

We are the first Chat Staff to be repre-
sented in the Junior Year Book by more than
a snapshot. Nevertheless, we pay tribute to
the group who started this literary organiza-
tion nearly a decade ago. It is through their
work and the work of their followers, our
predecessors, that the foundation was laid
for the product of our yearis work which we
feel stands abreast of that of other local
schools and which we hope has met with
Many of us will be continuing our work
next year in the same position, or in another
one of our choice, but a large number of us
will be Seniors.
We wish to extend our thanks to Miss

their guidance, and to our advertisers who
have given our publication the necessary

The final scores of the soccer team this
year were more satisfactory than last year.
Many of our previous letter-men returned,
and we had a fairly strong team. Our team
consisted of 14 players several of whom
played for their first time. We played games
with Sherrill, Cleveland, Wfestmoreland,
Oriskany and Cincinnatus. We had close
scores in all our games, but the season ended
with our winning two and losing six games.
The team joins in thanking Mr. Bent for
working with us and wishes him a more suc-
cessful season for the coming year.
