History of the Senior Class N A SEPTEMBER morning in 1907, sixty-five pupils wandered for the first time through the halls of P. H. S. How long we had dreamed of the day when we should enter upon the work of the high school! In fact, some of our dreams in those days placed before us ideals far higher than we have actually attained, and on the other hand some, per- haps, were mere visions of study over-balanced by a good time. However, whatever our ideals may have been concerning our high school life, we were at last, after a long search through the halls, seated in Miss McKinney's room ready to begin work. Of course, like all other classes, we had a struggle to remember our dif'l'erent recitation rooms. Almost anywhere in the building some strag- gling Freshman might have been found in search of his class. These diffi- culties, however, were settled when the number of each room was given us and we were required to learn it. Thus a-t the end of the first week we were able to find our places very readily, the strangeness of things wore away, and wc found ourselves really started in our high school career. One great event of tlhe first year was Freshman Day, when a program was given before the whole school in the Assembly Room. Ive did our best to make the iro fram interestin 1' and as food as those of other classes, there- P- fore, we worked harder than anv of the others to make it so. Durin 1' this . 5- year several pupils left school, while two entered our class. When we reached the,Sophomore year we felt more important for having taken one step toward the goal for which we were striving, that of getting an education. We now mingled more with the Juniors and Seniors, and on the other hand really sympathized with the Freshmen: for, recollections of the year before and of our own mistakes were still fresh in our minds. This year, too, we found a change of several members of the faculty, among them a new Principal, Mr. Ellabarger, who for three years has heard and settled our difficulties. Domestic Science was added to our high schoo course, and this, in addition to the Manual Training and Commercial work which had been introduced in the two previous years greatly increased the interest of our school life. At the beginning of this year we found our lessons rather hard to get, hut, after a few weeks, we once more became accustomed to study and worked hard from day to day, all the while drawing near the time when we could call ourselves Juniors. Our class that entered the Junior year was changed a little in numbers, some having joined us from preceding classes, while others had been added to the ranks of 1912. Now that we had reached the last half of the high school course, we felt that we were fast approaching the end of our school career, and thus we realized that we must make the best possible use of the time that remained. 1Ye soon found that to be Juniors meant hard study on the part of each one. In fact it required our best efforts to accomplish the work. During this year the Rhetorical Societies were organized and these have proved to be of real help to us both in composition and in debate. Under the direction of one of the boys of our class, the High School Orches- tra was formed and a number of the class have been members of the orchestra, also. The orchestra has played many times for the high school as well as on occasions outside of school and their music has been enjoyed by all who have heard it. 1Ve feel honored in having an organization that plays so splendidly under the leadership of one of the boys of 1911. At the end of the Junior year three pupils had been added to our number, while one mem- ber of the class had moved away. We entered our last year wondering what it meant in the way of work and study to be a Senior. 1Ve soon learned that it meant a very busy year for each one of us, and yet one which all have enjoyed. In the first place our class with the entire student body had our pictures taken last fall in
