SEPT. 61-"And then the whining school boy .
. . . creeping like a snail
Unwillingly to school."
What fun to meet the old gang after a summer of war work, farming,
domestic toil, or loafing! We found three new teachers in our midst, among
them Mr. Pincombe, who had returned after an absence of two years. lVliss
Steele welcomed a large group of freshmen into the study hall, and we all
settled ourselves in different seats and prepared to begin our labors.
SEPT. 9iAlready the hall guards have found out that even in spite of Mrs.
Eppley the junior high folks haven't learned that they should walk on every step.
SEPT. l7-Prexy Smythe presented his candidate for president, Jake the
Gremlin, at our first chapel.
SEPT. l9--The Mixed Chorus started weekly rehearsals at the unearthly
hour of 8:10 A. M.
SEPT. 27-Was l nervous to be interviewed by the state inspector today!
After inspecting the teaching, equipment, and special departments, Mr. Lou-
thian of the State Department of Education, submitted a favorable report.
