The class of 1933, eighty-four in number, have reached the "Wise fool" stage, vve
are sophomores. From this seemingly high elevation we glance somewhat scornfully
back at the inexperienced and frightened freshmen we were once, for, after two years
in Mynderse we really feel quite grown-up and sophisticated. Someone has said
that sophomore year is "Much Ado About Nothing," and to be perfectly honest,
there isn't much for a sophomore to do, but we managed to have an election at which
we gave Marian Story the leadership for the year, and then this serious business being
over vve decided to have a party. Dancing! Doughnuts! Cider! They were the high-
lights of the party of which Helen Hadley was chairman and the P. G.'s guests, and
as they say in the great open spaces, "A good time was had by all."
We have been busy trying out in the various activities in Mynderse: athletics,
journalism, and music particularly, and vve have shown some promise in all fields.
Four of our number are lettermen in football and six, in basketball. So With this start,
in the tvvo years to come vve hope to prove our merit as successors of the present
holders of honors in school affairs.
The year is almost ended and we would be anxious to move on and become juniors
if it weren't for one thing-moving-up day for us, means losing our sister class, 1931,
and that is the only cloud on '33's horizon.
To the seniors vvho will shortly be graduated, We make promise that We shall try
to carry on their ideals so that when vve come to the end of the high-school trail we
shall be worthy successors to the Class of '31,

Back in September 1918, four harried faculty advisers had the pleasant task of
organizing our rather unruly horde of freshmen into a class. With Gladys McCoy as
first president, we set out to prove ourselves true representatives, loyal to Mynderse
traditions. For the next ten months We did our best in an inconspicuous vvay to make
ourselves felt as a class, and then our first year ended.
Proud to be sophomores and to move to more dignified rooms on the second floor,
we began our second year with vim. Jack Fyfe vvas our leader for that short year,
and our only activity was a novel get-together party with the post-grads as guests,
and then We moved to the West end of the corridor-we were juniors.
We are sure that being so close to the senior room is having its effect on us. Having
begun the year right by electing Mary Haley to the presidency, we planned our first
party, a very informal masquerade, inviting all the classes.
Later in the season, that the friendship of the seniors and juniors might be further
cemented, We gave a reception and dance for the seniors.
The undeniable success of our play, "The Call of the Banshee," which was our
first venture in dramatics, further testified to our strength and promise.
The most important social event of the semester is still a part of the future-our
Prom. Hovvever, with the invaluable aid of our advisers we expect to use a Hawaiian
theme successfully this year and thus achieve another memorable Prom to bring our
third year of Mynderse life to a fitting close.

The audience waited expectantly. Why? They had come to see "The Grand Review
ofthe Freshman Class of 193o," which was the largest class Mynderse had ever had.
The curtain slowly rose.
Scene one showed the opening day of school. A long line of bewildered and fright-
ened frosh stood at the door trembling with fear. When they were admitted, they
stared at everything curiously. Their school life had never seemed so complicated
before. When they saw the seniors passing to classes with ease and experience, the
freshmen just gazed at them with awe. Oh! to be lordly seniors.
The second scene showed the freshmen settled after nearly four weeks of active
and enlightening school life. They were electing their officers. Amid general con-
fusion and after much discussion and argument Cecil Fitzgerald was chosen president.
Miss Wickes, Miss Caldwell, Miss Menegay and Mr. Taylor were chosen class
The gymnasium was the setting for the third scene. Girls and boys were playing
basketball, and how they played it! The announcement was made that twelve fresh-
men had made the squad: seven girls and live boys. The boys' and girls' interclass
teams were also very promising.
Next scene was the banner draped gymnasium where the freshmen were having their
class party. Dancing and games were enjoyed until the advisers said, "Time to go
home," and Nineteen Thirty-Four's party came to an end.
The review ended when the freshmen marched onto the stage clasping their certifi-
cate of Sophomoreship, for they had successfully completed their first high-school
