Again we participated in the magazine cam-- paign and the scrap paper drive but did not come out on top. Working hard with Miss Baniak and Miss Florence Linindcll we edited the "Blotter". We had our troubles but we had to admit it was pretty good. In February we had the Valent:lne's Dance and Doris Johnson very artistically drew our silhouettes. We were all very excited on the day our class rings arrived. When class night came, we paraded as a circus. This year our class had the honor of choosing a boy to attend 'Boys State", and selected Robert Buist. In lay our class sponsored the Jlmicr Prom, better known as "Tulip Time". Everyone enJoyed dancing to the music of Frank Fitch and his orchestra. The gym was trans formed into a Dutch Garden. The Queen, who was Joan Hauser was crowned Frances Layman.

Now we were at the end of our route As bus number four drove into the driveway and to the back of the school, we counted the number of buses which had arrived before us We bumped into Ir Greenleaf, standing at his station, as we walked in the door Finally we had arrived at the lockers.

l 'Br-ring' 'Gosh is was morning alreadyu. A good many seniors were repeating these words on a bright Ctc usj Friday morning, March 26, in 1948. Yes, it was either four or five o'clock and we were to be ready to leave Wind- ham by six, so as to be in the Catskill depot at 7:15 A. H. Of course the train was late but by eight o'olook we were on our merry way. Around noon we pulled into the Weehawkan station. From there we walked to the ferry. A bus picked us up and before we knew it we were on another ferry. After taking a newer and faster train, we arrived in Washington around s1x o'clook. We all went to our rooms and freshened up. Then we went out to din- er and a movie. After we came back to the hotel no one slept because we were all so excited. The next morning we heard the telephone and whom should it be but the operator telling us it was seven o'olook. After a light breakfast we went to the Gap- ital. Having gone through the building we had our picture taken,w1th the Cap- ital as a background. It was nearly noon, so we went back to the hotel for ,1l1D.0h e After lunch we went on a tour of the historic places in the city and the zoo where I am sure everyone enjoyed himself, and then to the Arlington Gementery. That evening we split up, some of us went shopping, and the rest went swim ming at the Ambassador Hotel. Easter Sunday we were up at five getting ready for the sunrise service. After everyone had had dinner we went on a tour to Mount Vernon and theNational Air port After dinner we headed for the Lincoln Memorial and the Congressional Lib rary. I oould'nt tell you what everyone did that evening but a good time was had by all Monday morning we went to the Federal nureau of Investigation, and the Smith sonian Institute. After this we went back to the hotel for lunch. Lunch was over and now for the tour which the girls had anxiously awaited Our first stop was at the Franciscan Monastery and then Annapolis. W were at Annapolis for quiet awhile but around 4 30 we started for the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we went out to dinner and a movie, as the Amuse ment Park had not yet opened for the year. Of course we went to bed early and right to sleep. Golly, but the time surely went fast. On Tuesday our last day, we headed for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Our it nerary called for a lot more but we only visited the Bureau and the Washington Monument, before it was time to catch the train and leave for the Catskills. Even with the nice clean trains, the wonderful hotel service, poor weather, and plenty of sleep, I'm sure everyone had a wonderful time and met a lo f new friends and still carried out all the rules of the trip. 1 H30- 9.
