The inception of the Colonial took place in the senior class, under the direction of Mr.
Rogers. Since so much time was devoted to the actual printing of the copies and less to its
contents, We decided, after our iirst mimeographed issue. that we would have it printed.
Ever since the Colonial has been published, it has been mimeographed by the student, here
in the typing room. As we had no special room for our paper, and had to use the typing room,
it caused a great deal of confusion during a class.

The main staff consists as follows: Editor, Evelyn Nelson: Business Manager, Lurella Reed:
Girls' Sports, Muriel Witwerg Boys' Sports, Richard Kubiakg Fads and Fashions, Joan Patrick:

ship with it and say, "Well done." Thanks, juniors, for helping us the last semester. To you
We say, "Good luck. Make it even better."
