PURPLE AND GOLD
Yet not ot thine eternal resting-place
Shalt thou retire alone,-nor couldst thou wish
Couch more magnificent. Thou shalt lie down
With patriarchs of the infant world,-with kings,
The powerful of the earth,-the wise, the good,
Fair forms, and hoary seers of ages past,
All in one mighty sepulchre.

ASSES IN T
BOARD OF EDUCATION
Standing: John Grogan, Harry Pierce, Paul
Seated: Fred Shoemaker, Robert Morford,
John Moritz, John Young.
This year the board lost a member and gained a member. Many other
changes have been made this year, but we find the president, Mr. Bright, and
vice-president, Mr. Morford, are still leading the meetings. New problems have
arisen and although some have caused diFFiculty these men have come through
with the proper solutions. Teachers and students alike have been aided by this
Aside from the work these men do in their meetings, they are very busy with
other activities. Basketball games, dances, and other extra-curricular activities
are attended by our board members.

Howard C. Douds - Supervising Principal
At the head of the faculty is our principal, Mr.
Douds. Through his oftice all the activities of the School
are planned and every day the problems of many stu-
dents are solved with his help. Mr. Douds has become
well known throughout V. H. S. as a congenial and cap-
Kermit Anderson - High School Principal
This is the man who promotes the general welfare
of the senior high school students. He is kept busy sched-
uling activities and issuing excuses to those who have
been absent. Mr. Anderson has many other chores, in-
cluding presiding over assemblies and interpreting the
rules and regulations to fit all cases.
Blanche Lindemuth - Junior High School Principal
Although we know that the business of the school is
carried on in Mr. Douds' oftice, one of the busiest places
is just across the hall. There you'll find Miss Lindemuth.
If you know anything about Verona Schools, you know
her. She has long been the 'Favorite of students, which
may be due to her magnetic personality.

The Senior Class of '48 began in '36,
It didn't take us long to learn the common grade school tricks..
The first year passed, the second, too, and soon came Junior High:
Our high school days would soon begin, the time kept fiying by.
Our Freshman year was here and gone before we thought about it.
The Sophomore class of '46, the best, no one dare doubt it!
As Juniors we received our rings and also held our dance,
We planned the Prom and Junior Play a long time in advance.
And finally the time had come for us to move ahead,
As Seniors, we realized we must lead and not be led.
The day of graduation lay just around the bend,
Too swiftly life in Verona High was drawing to an end.
Our days in school are over, and now we will confess
The time we spent in V. H. S. was filled with happiness.
No matter what a Senior says, he stands with heart downcast
To think that his own Senior Class is now part of the past.
We all pretend we're glad we're through, but this is lust a show-
The way we feel down in our hearts only a Senior can know.
by Tom Marchese
Lottie has a friendly smile,
Her friendships number many,
She's always ready and willing to help
With work if you have any.
With a flair for the dramatic
And a knack for writing, too
Nellie smiles her way into your heart
When your friendship is yet new.
BETTY JANE BELL-General
Sweet, petite, and friendly
Describes Betty Jane Bell,
Her hair looks pretty at all times
And she really dresses well.
Make-up neat, hair iust right-
That's "Red" we can't deny,
Her beautician's career was started
When she was in her third year high.
Tony's well liked by everyone
But he's the envy of the girls,
Why is it that the fellows
Have such very pretty curls?
On hand to cheer the boys
At each and every game,
Babe didn't change with the weather,
She retained her pep the same.
MA RY AGNES BURKHART-General
Burk's had trouble in her high school career
But she's smiling through all you can bet,
Her precious diploma is now in view
And nothing has downed her yet.
WI NONA CLEA RY-General
You know sometimes you get quite weary
But not our girl Winona Cleary.
When things get bad and you are blue,
She's the one we'lI send to you.
Some things rattle, but not "Bones,"
When he's mad he gets the "moans".
A lover of fun, you all can see,
To happiness he's found the key.
TOM CON DON-Academic
Tom never worries, not one bit
You see this boy has got some wit,.
He loves all sports, especially swimmin',
And then of course, there are his Hwimmin
Y. .W ...Ya
Among our future homemakers
Betty rates quite high,
Her experience with Home Economics
ls sure to always satisfy.
Tony is Verona's Gene Kelly,
Of that we can be sure:
On the dance floor he's a whiz-
Almost a connoisseur.
A bright sunny smile is in view
And "Merch" is always behind it.
If the lost chord you want can be found on the
She is the one who can find it.
New to our class, but not to the school,
ls ex-G. l. Stanley Dales,
His average is good, and his friendly ways
Would rate high on popularity polls.
Ken's a boy you ought to know-
He's really quite good looking.
He's slow "n" easy on the draw
And hard to tind when something's cooking.
Every group must have a leader-
A good one can brighten the show,
With Em at the front of our band,
In competition they didn't rate low.
Rita works hard at Murphy's
As well as at V. H. S.
When something comes up for Rita to do,
You can bet she'll give it her best.
A very good worker is our Dick,
He wields a rather mighty pen,
His years at V. H. S. plus future college days
May make him rate with the great among men.
Annie shows us how to see
The happy side of Iiteg
Good times for all is her key
To turn away all strife.
When Pete picks up a saxophone,
The sounds we hear are sweet,
The things he does with his horn,
Simply can't be beat.
"Ogie's" the girl with plenty of answers,
On the basketball floor she is speedy.
If life depends on a bright disposition,
You'll never find our Olga needy.
Not only a good drummer but one of the best
Our George K. never need worry,
He's a real easy goin' guy
And does only his drummin' in a hurry.
Jim rates high in the field of sports,
He's witty and friendly always.
Tomorrow he'Il be out in the cold, cruel world,
But he's safe at VHS today.
Although it's hard to understand,
How lots goes into little,
When Connie's here, you can see,
lt's really not a riddle.
Though small in height, she is full of fun-
She makes things seem just right,
When Marge is here, we're full of cheer,
'Cause she's a girl we like.
Life of every party
With his smile and friendly ways,
Arkie does a good iob
When he works or when he plays.
Deep blue eyes and long blond hair,
At Verona, Tech or Penn,
Barb and her man make quite a pair,
Or should we say her men?
Oil and brushes, needle and thread-
Sounds like a working convention,
lt's really nothing for you to dread,
lt's iust Irene we mention.
ln the smallest kind of packages
Come all of the good things we know,
And there's not a better boy than Tom
To put you in the know.
RICARDO MA RON I-Academic
Whenever music's in the air,
Or the conversation's merry,
Look in the center ofthe crowd
And you will tind our "Harry",
Andy is our newest classmate,
The friends he has are many,
We all know how high he rates,
For he's as bright as a copper penny.
Music has really always been
Important in Carol's life,
But what could be better than melody
To keep one's mind from strife?
With the practical experience,
Which he's gained at V. H. S.,
John will someday proudly boast
That his home is quite the best.
For this young man
School's iust a pastime,
But after hours spent in study,
You'll 'Find him "happy" with his budd
With brain Sonny's gifted,
He's a friend tried and true,
He's a very good worker
And he can dance, too.
Baseball fans are many,
Whether their interests are great or small,
But as hard working as is our Paul
She'll take off to watch a game of ball.
To be twice chosen president of our mighty class,
Why he must be good, I declare!
Earl's the gent in question,
Ancl he could do well anywhere.
Always in the best of style
From shoes to crowning glory,
Poochie tells us all the while
That a man causes all her worry.
The Frankie fans are few
ln this Senior class of ours:
Don is our own male songbird-
We could listen to his songs for hours.
She's as sweet as the candy she sells,
At the good old five and dime,
Ruthie's really a true friend
To be depended on all of the time.
Tatalovich Thaner Tomazich Tsudis
Turpin VanTine West Youk
Editor of a yearbook is a mansized iob for sure,
But it took a little girl to fill it well,
Deane's on the beam with ideas ofthe year,
And everything she does is really swell.
"Jeanie" is an usherette-
She works as well as plays,
You never find her in a fret,
For Bill makes her happy every day.
To model the fashions of "48",
Our Mimi would be simply great,
Her blond wavy hair and complexion so fair,
Really go to make her rate.
For info on sports news,
Mal's the girl to see,
Her knowledge of sports rules,
Runs right on from A through Z.
Blond wavy hair and a quick bright smile,
He excels on field and floor,
"Turp" leads us all by a good long mile,
When we're heading forthe door,
Lite ofthe party with her Betty Hutton charm,
Chick's always known to lead the fun,
But she's not always flighty, there's no need for alarm,
She'll settle quickly if there's a job to be done.
Here's a lad with real ambition-
He never does much loafingy
lt he's not hard at work repairing,
He's keeping his mind in good condition.
The canary ofthe senior class
ls our good friend Miss Dolly,
lt's not often that she'll sing for us,
But she's really good, by golly.
S-al is everybody's Friend,
She likes a lot of fun,
But if you get our Sally mad,
You'd better start to run.

VERONA'S ALMA MATER
O'er the purple hills encompassed,
Bathed in ambient air,
Gem of Verona's lovely valley,
Stands our High School fair.
Blest by love of all her children-
See her colors proudly waving,
Purple and Gold.
Royal purple, Honor's emblem,
Golden seal of Truth-
These she flings as inspiration
To the heart of youth.
Splendid promise to the future-
Wrought by knightly deed
Splendid heir of long tradition
Bid her now "God-Speed."
Lift your voices, sing her praises
Over hill and dale,
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
High School, Hail All Hail!

Martha Flick-Vice President
This year of work on our part,
Took determination and a strong heart.
First came our play,
And it was an hilarious thing.
A gun went oft
And Jane O'Connell had to sing.
Then the Harvest Hop
We gave with pride:
Our praises were sung
But we took this in our stride.
The prom was ours to engineerp
And as the great night drew near,
With high hopes and secret plans,
We decorated the gym with willing hands.
Don't you think that we deserve
A pat on the back and a kind word?

BEAMS OF THE V. H. S. SPOTLIGHT
Norma Jean Bell-Secretary-Treasurer
Our Freshman year began with fun
With all our hard work to be done.
Maroon and white were the colors we chose
As our prom decorations when the tour years close.
The Freshman hike was really swell,
And everyone liked it very well.
We all came packed with lots of food
While everyone was in a happy mood.
Our own class party was a big success,
It was full of fun and happiness.
We've had lots of fun every day,
And now a lot more is coming our way.
As the year rolls on and on
All our Freshman fun is gone,
But the next three years will be a hit
And we'll try to make the best of it.
We'll pass this year to a lower grade,
And with the Sophomores we'll make a trade.

"To create, maintain, and extend through-
out the school and community high standards of
Christian character." These words are familiar
to every Hi-Y member. Their purpose, service,
is realized in a six-fold program-service to
members, community, nation, world, God and
school-by personally accepting responsibility
for the best Academic effort: by participating in
extra-curricular and student-faculty activity: by
offering to help in the many situations that arise
where student co-operation and organization are

The Junior Division of Hi-Y follows closely
the plan instigated by the Senior Hi-Y.
The Hi-Y organization should enable high
school boys to be able to deal with their per-

the kind of world they live in.
The Hi-Y has many worthy objectives. lt
strives to deepen their Christian convictions, to
understand the meaning of democracy and dem-

After reorganizing this year the Y-Teens
were quite active. Their calendar consisted of
a successful carnival, a widely read newspaper,
and many other proiects iust as important. The
code of Y-Teens, "World Fellowship," was pro-
moted by all these activities. Some of the club
members enjoyed a swimming party at the
YWCA in town. Most of them attended a dance
the Y-Teens from this district. lt has
been felt that a successful year has been spent.

Clickety, Clock Hold everything! Tear out
page one-Patty has a scoop! This hub-bub is
only a small part of what actually goes on in
publishing a newspaper. It would be futile to
attempt to explain all the work, and time in-
volved. The Newspaper Sta'Ff, a part of the Y-
Teens, chose as their aim "To report all school
events faithfully and without preiudicef' What
a gigantic aim! But their efforts are not disre-
garded, for everyone looked forward to the pub-
lication of the "Panther Hi Lite."

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
T. Ma rchese
JILL HL- ' nf, Uulz. jchcwl
No honor conferred by the school excels that represented by this Society.
It represents the fundamental objectives for which schools are instituted and gives
recognition to those who have attained most nearly the desired ends.
The Constitution of this national organization recognizes four cardinal obiec-
tives as fundamental in all educational practice: Scholarship, Character, Leader-
ship, and Service. To exalt these obiectives and hold them ever before the school
as goals towards which all should strive, is the purpose of this Society. Our aim
shall be to hold before the school such motives as shall induce others to aspire
to scholarly habits, to enlist in worthy service and to lead forward in all things that
shall advance the welfare of the school.
The main advantages of the Society are to define and set standards for the
ideal high school student, to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to promote lead-
ership, to develop character, and to stimulate a desire to render service.
The emblem of the Society is the Keystone, which bears at its base the letters
S, L, C, and S, and a flaming torch. To you, the members of the National Honor
Society, we say "Keep the torch of high ideals burning."

The Student Organization of Verona carried out a full and successful pro-
gram--many difficult situations that arose were handled quietly and efficiently,
assembly programs were given, and a host of varied activities completed.
ln the Constitution of the Student Council are stated the fundamental prin-
ciples of this worthy organization. They have striven to carry out these principles
as we as o nation have striven to carry out the principles of the Constitution of
the United States. As servants of the students and faculty, they have, to the
utmost of their ability, promoted student paricipotion, served as a medium
between the faculty and the student body, and contributed to the general welfare
of the school by helping to foster school spirit and fellowship.
Their accomplishments deserve more than a passing remark from all of us.
Our remarks should be, "Well done, and more power to you in the future, Student

Snapshots! Deadlines! Discounts! Engrav-

Dummy! Writeups! It all sounds like a iumble
of nonsense but to Staff Club members it means
the "l948 Purple and Gold." It is only through
the cooperation of all departments-literary, lay-
out, photography, art, sports, typing-that the
yearbook each year is published for Verona stu-
clents. Your financial aid has been solicited
through your support of yearbook sales and ad-
vertisements, magazine subscriptions, dances,
and bake sales. The project necessitates a great
deal of work but we also have fun watching
the progress as each page is finished. We hope
you enioy the results.

Many of us realize the importance of financing the yearbook.
We know that in order to have a "Purple and Gold," we must work
for it. First of all, there is the soliciting of ads for the yearbook. Mrs.
Higginbotham chose eight reliable and dependable students to take
over the task. Under her guidance, they learned the art of salesman-
ship and courtesy. Although they met with some difficulty in securing
the ads, they retained their spirit. They all agreed that wherever
they went, they were received in a friendly manner. They were un-
easy at first, but then fears vanished. Eagerly, they went to work to
obtain their goal. We should be proud of them and Mrs. Higgin-
botham for doing such a splendid job. They did a great deal in help-
ing to finance our "Purple and Gold."

This year our girls spent many hours perfecting routines to go with
the band drills. They didn't have to rely entirely on their own ingen-
uity because of the instructions they received from their director, Mr.
One girl is chosen from each grade from eight to twelve to repre-
sent that class on the maiorette squad. Each girl chosen must prove
herself capable in new routines before she is accepted. The senior
member is head maiorette for the season and soon learns the right
commands to put the band through their paces.
A lot of credit is due to these girls who put forth so much effort to
make our band successful and attractive.
Jazz, Umonah, 9 '
Early in the fall before school began the prospective band members met with
their new director, Mr. Bongiovanni. At this meeting and the ones that followed
they became acquainted with the director and his plans. It was obvious to every-
one that the year would bring a lot of hard work.
The first week of school found the band practicing morning and evening
for the football games. The townspeople saw many new formations and drills
and were pleased with the new ideas.
Immediately after football season they began practicing for the spring con-
cert. Novelty numbers and several classics brought to the band a new type of
program and again the audience was pleased by the variety offered.
Throughout the year the band has played for assemblies, plays, and pro-
grams of all kinds.

GIRLS GLEE CLUB
Just like the voices of angels, the songs floated out over a hushed audience
at the Christmas program. The girls of our Glee Club even looked like angels
as they stood on the stage of the dimly lighted auditorium with their long, flow-
ing gowns in pastel shades giving the scene a touch of ethereal beauty. This
group under the direction of Mr. Bongiovanni gave iust the right touch to the
musical activities at V. H. S. during this past year, and they shall continue to do
so through the years to come.
BOYS GLEE CLUB
In true masculine tone the strains of "Dona Nobis" rose over the hushed
audience as a new and better Boys Glee Club made its debut. This group, in-
spired by an enthusiastic Mr. Bongiovanni, brought music to our ears unlike any
we've heard in our auditorium for years.
The many hours of hard work put in by all were not wasted. The crescen-
does' and pianissimos and fortissimos were almost near perfection. The fine
performances given at Christmas time and in the assemblies were a splendid
surprise and in the future we would like to hear more fine renditions. It was a
joy listening to such a well-rehearsed group.
Appreciation of good music took a special part in activities at V. H. S. when
Mr. Bongiovanni organized a music club. In the foreground of this group's
activities is the effort to give recognition to those of our lucky student body who
possess real talent. They have shown that they know the value of the phono-
graph by letting it have its say at meetings, which goes all the way from Bach to
James-Harry, that is.

FIRST AID CLUB
This club, newly organized this year, is for
Junior High School students. They learn how to
stop bleeding, how to wrap cuts, and many
other things of importance in an emergency.
They experiment with bandages by practicing
on each other. This practical experience should
prove to be very useful to them in the future.

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
This is an entirely new club this year, spon-
sored by our Home Economics teacher, Mrs. Bell.
It was organized for girls who like to cook, knit,
sew, crochet, etc., but have no other opportunity
to learn. Several parties have been given, and
the girls have planned, cooked, and eaten their
lunch at school several times during the term.

was a difficult task but a worthy one which pro-

The purpose of the Leaders Club is to teach

sales and the sale of Christmas cards in order
to buy sweaters and emblems for the seniors.

Our cheerleaders, under the sponsorship of Mr. Bongiovanni, were very
trim this year in their new uniforms. They wore purple skirts and yellow
varsity sweaters. Mrs. Bell, our Home Ec. teacher, made their skirts. These
girls-Peggy, Jane, Betty Jane, Babe, Martha, Marilyn, and Pat-did a
wonderful job in keeping up the morale, both of the team and of the student
body. They were always energetic and peppy. Realizing the importance
of their iob, they carried on even though things may have looked bad for
the team. A great deal of time was spent in working with new cheers and
revising old ones. It took ca lot of thinking to find new motions for the
cheers. They should be given credit for their marvelous work.
In giving credit to the Senior High Cheerleaders, we must not forget
the Junior High Cheerleaders. Having been chosen at the end of the '47
school year, they have shown that they are quite capable of slipping into
their places in the Senior High squad when their time comes. Due to their
late organization, we regret to say that we have no picture of them.

ln this, the first game of the year, Verona was baffled by
Millvale's tricky T offense. Verona was stunned as Millvale
carried across a score in the first few minutes of the game.
Millvale again scored and convened in the second quarter. At
half time the score stood Millvale 'I3-Verona 0. In the third
quarter Verona got its only score when Bright, intercepting
a Millvale pass, dashed 60 yards for the touchdown. Bright
failed to convert. In the fourth quarter a Millvale back twisted
30 yards for the third and final score.
In the first quarter of the game Edgewood scored on a
long pass. They failed to convert. ln the second, Verona
marched 80 yards down the field to score. Here Hawk scored
on a pass from Costa. Verona failed to convert. At the half
the score stood at 6-6. The third quarter was a stalemate as
both teams played scoreless ball. In the fourth quarter they
again scored by means of a long pass. This time they con-
verted. Verona could not score again, and the game ended
with Edgewood the winner.
East McKeesport-19 Verona-0
ln the third game of the season Verona faced East McKees-
port who was undefeated in Class B running. In the first quar-
ter East McKeesport recovered a Verona fumble on the five
yard line. A few plays later they scored from the one foot
line. The second period touchdown was made when a blocked
kick was recovered in the end zone. The half ended with East
McKeesport leading by two touchdowns. In the third quarter
neither team could score. In the fourth quarter East McKees-
port again blocked a kick and recovered on the five yard line.
This set up the third touchdown and the conversion was good.
St. Justin-7 Verona-6
Verona's failure to convert cost them the fourth defeat of
In the first quarter St. Justin scored on a long pass. The
kick for the extra point was partly blocked but the point was
still good. There was no scoring in the second quarter. The
half ended with St. Justin leading, 7-O. The third quarter was
scoreless. In the fourth quarter Verona marched down the
field and scored on a pass from Turpin to Hawk in the end zone.
The pass for the extra point was blocked and the game ended
with Verona losing a heartbreaker, 7-6.
Late in the first quarter Verona's hard-charging line re-
covered a fumble in the end zone for the first score. The con-
version failed. In the second quarter Loggi, after intercepting
a pass, raced 60 yards, only to be dragged down on the one
yard line. From here Hawk scored the second touchdown on
a plunge. Again the conversion failed. At the half the score
stood 12-0. ln the third quarter Hampton, capitalizing on a
fumble, drove across a score. The conversion was good. In
the fourth quarter neither team could score. Thus, Verona
snatched their first win of the season.

ln the first half Verona played exceptionally good offen-
sive and defensive ball, Verona's 60 yard march was stopped
on the 3 yard line. Neither team scored the first half. The
third quarter proved victorious for Aspinwall. Capitalizing on
two Verona fumbles, they scored two touchdowns in succession.
Both conversions failed. The fourth quarter neither team scored,
although Verona was threatening when the game ended.
Early in the first quarter Plum completed a long pass
which carried to the Verona eight yard line. Verona braced
and held for downs on their own ten-yard line. In the second
quarter neither team threatened. Then in the third quarter both
teams battled up and down the field but neither could score.
The fourth quarter saw Plum threatening again but was stop-
ped on the ten by Verona.
Verona High's grid machine finally hit their scoring stride
against Sharpsburg. Verona scored in the first quarter after
recovering a Sharpsburg fumble. Turpin passed to Gould for
the first score. The attempt for extra point failed. In the sec-
ond quarter Verona marched sixty yards with Bright taking it
over from the eight yard line. The conversion failed. In the
last half Verona was able to pick up three touchdowns. The
first was scored on a pass from Turpin to Gould who lateralled
to Hawk who scored. Bright plunged for the extra point. The
score stood Verona-19, Sharpsburg-0. A few minutes later
Verona blocked a punt and recovered on Sharpsburg's twenty-
five yard line. The same pass-lateral play followed with Hawk
scoring again. The conversion failed. The final score was
made by Hawk, who traveled twenty-nine yards to paydirt.
The big game of the year came when Verona met Oak-
mont at Verona. The first quarter saw neither team score.
In the second quarter Oakmont scored on a long pass which
took them 80 yards for a touchdown. The conversion failed.
The half ended with Oakmont leading 6-0. The second half
saw a highly aroused Verona team march 80 yards to a
touchdown after the kickoff. Bright scored from the 5-yard
line. The conversion failed. The score was tied at 6-6. Fol-
lowing Verona's score Oakmont marched down the field on
passes to score. The try for extra point failed. Neither team
could score in the fourth quarter. The game ended with Oak-
mont winning, 12-6.

REVUES OF THE PAST
September second was the opening day,
Everyone turned out bright and gay,
The curtain went up for the 47-48 season,
But the students weren't settled down yet for iust one reason.
lt was hard for the teachers to get the attention of all,
Because they did not have their minds on English, but on football.
The football season started, and just like a gale,
We lost to Edgewood, East McKeesport, and Millvale.
ln the middle of all the confusion, the teachers dressed up in their best,
While they went to Institute we stayed home to rest.
The remaining games with Hampton, St. Justin, and Sharpsburg werent
But the last game of the season was really sad.
Our last word to Oakmont is that they've got something to fear
When they see the team we have lined up for next year.
The Juniors surprised us with their very fine play,
And a week later with their dance, which was the hit of the day
Reverend Hilbert gave the prayer for Thanksgiving
And gave thanks for the great world in which we are living.
The way our basketball season started was beyond speech
And the goal we made last year, we were sure again to reach.
The Christmas Cantata was the greatest sensation,
For a long time Verona had not witnessed such a presentation.
After vacation we lost to East Deer and West Deer, too,
But we beat Millvale, Aspinwall, Hampton and Plum, to name ius
January ninth was really the treat,
For on that day it was Oakmont we beat,
Oakmont wasn't happy-they were really sore,
And they started saying they would beat us on their floor.
lt was the other way around for Oakmont, I guess,
Because on February 6th we made Oakmont look like a mess.
March was a busy month with class parties and plays,
And the seniors were starting to count the remaining days.
The month of May was the finest of all,
With the distribution of year books and the Junior Ball,
The seniors were busy with their graduation programs,
The teachers were busy with the 'final exams.
The '48 seniors in their hearts will hold
A little soft spot for the Purple and Gold.
June fourth was the closing day,
And everyone went home looking bright and gay.
