--'El THE ANOKANFW- another unwanted bequest. Miss Schmidt told us that Geometry would make us think, but it proved to me that I was not endowed with that enviable power. This term also marked some improvements in the old "workhouse" Lockers were brought into existence. As we had locker mates. much needed information could be gained without having to make a forced entrance through diplomatic arbitration which did not always prove successful. The library was moved from downstairs to one end of the assembly room. This did not meet with my approval as the frequent excursions out past the drinking foun- tain ceased. The starting of the new addition brought more variation. School Hnally closed with the usual parting tears. , 1930-31. Once more I presented myself for intellectual instruction. The old thrill of my freshman year came back. We had a new building. It was the pride of our hearts. Classes started. While the routine seemed new I enjoyed myself but it soon came to be exasperatingly tedious. The thought of only one more year spurred me on. The longer school hours hampered my rest periods. as I usually slept best in the morning. General Activities periods brought enjoyment but the old locomotive at pep-fests lacked the required steam. We gave the seniors a banquet which was a good feed if I do say it my- self. Unemployment or something must have whetted their appetites for they certainly were voracious. School closed with 'AHappy Days Are Here Again." ARTHUR IVICCAULEY. Junior Party On Friday evening, December 5, the Juniors met at the high school. They journeyed to the Green Theatre where an exciting wild west picture was in store for them. After the show, dancing was enjoyed at the high school. When Miss Dalton announced "eats", dancing was completely forgotten. Cocoa, cake. and ice cream quickly disappeared. After a few more dances, Sweet Home" bade them good-night.'ven

---if THE ANOKAN Memories of a Junior 1928-29. I started in High School with lofty expectations of a grand vacation and a valiant future. The great assembly hall over-awed me. I was astounded at the crowd. I wasn't stung by the traditional coat hook gag, but never had a permanent one, always being pushed around from place to place. We had a class meeting and elected officers. Miss Strom showed us the narrow beaten path of our predecessors. I remember her particularly because of her insistency on collecting back dues at the end of the year. After the freshness wore off, things settled into a rut and little of consequence happened. "X" continued to be the unknown quantity in Algebra and as far as I was concerned it remained undiscovered. Silas lVlarner's hoard worked up my imagination on what I could have done with the pot of gold or what I could do as treasurer for John D. or Henry Ford. General Science was interesting but it did not touch on the problems that then confronted me, such as why an alarm clock persists in ringing an hour early or not at all. It was fully ex- plained how buildings are heated but no method was introduced by which one could push a button to start the fire on a cold morning. When thinking of these matters, I conclude that Socrates and Galileo were not such head-liners after all. On March 4, 1929, we were entertained by a radio broadcast of the in- augural exercises in Washington. Mr. Hoover and others made speeches with the customary utter disregard for those of us who would rather have heard more pieces by the Marine Band. Our class won the Silver Loving Cup for the sale of basketball season tickets, but the Eighteenth Amendment prohibited us from filling it with the sap of life that our ancestors sold to the Indians. Such was our unhappy existence. 1929-30. Once more we had to vibrate our grey matter, but still no pull with our superiors. More mind lifters of subjects. Biology taught the sani- tary method of licking a postage stamp. and the process of dissection of a certain old frog convinced me that my future work would not be that of taxidermist. Ivanhoe brought little relief. Julius Caesar would have been keen if there had been a mystery and a detective. The Idylls of the King was T4-wenty-six
