® u r Ol l m• n The Junior class of 1921 was the best in the school; no Sophomo1·e of 1922 denies it. Have you noticed th e superior quality of th e So ph omores th is year? You see we were .Junior s last year and n ot Fres hmen. Our social activities this year hav e been a p leas ing seq u e l to thos e of las t year, which we here review. The first Junior event was a picnic. Our guides led us o ut thr u a dark winding ro a d up over the brow of a hi ll ·w he re th e s ight of f o ur beautifu l bonfires gleaming beneath the trees greeted us. Th e wh ole affair was :! regular pep meeting from the time •ve fe ll in for the first game, unti l " ·e toasted the last marshmallow over th e dy ing embers. .Just before going home we gathered around the fire and to ld jok es and gr u eso m e ghost stories. 'l he night of revelry was brought to a close with so n gs and ye lls as we wended our homeward way . Do a~y of you remember hearing about our fir s t Junior party? Tha~ was the time when we had s uch a merry scramble for coat s and caps . Of a ll the exciting games, the auto races beat them a ll. Why Barney Oldfield would be green with envy had he seen them ! W e recommend eating apples and doughnuts after attending auto races. Before long another picnic was planned, but thru some misunderstanding it rained. Numerous oil s toves and chafing dis hes found their way into the gymna sium, and the picnic progressed in a very lively manner. How the bacon s izzled! We di scovered that bacon and eggs are idea l for indoor picnics. The Junior-Senior Banquet was the biggest event of th e year. Persistent planning and working a lways bring res ult s. On this occasion th e gymnasium was tran sfo ~me~ into a sta r~it gc_trden : a blue sky, tw ink ling with stars ; a white trellis with la rge white pillars at interva ls ; huge bas kets of yellow chrysanthemums on_ t~e top of each pillar; great mounds of fern on the garden walls. The topic f~r toasts v.ras "P lay the Game" . Wh o were the Sophomores last year? Jumors! All Junior activities came to a happy climax when th e Junior girls won the basketball championship. N o class cou ld ask for anything better with which to complete a year's record. Thus you see our career as Juniors was ended, and one as Sophomores begun.
Att 1Eur of limrlrotttr Knowing that the social life of each new schoo l year must have a start, theY. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., ~nd C. C. A. w~th the hearty cooperation of the Faculty provided a place, tim e, a nd occaswn for a jolly get-acquainted mix-up. In no time by means of a few slips of paper Labor Unions '' 'ere for med. Old friends and new friends were group ed off as Bakers, Bricklayer s, Carpent ers, Maso ns and T eachers. Our hosts and hostesses knowing th a t genial companions hip accompanies the partaking of food provid ed ice a nd cake. We just k ept on getting happier as the evening progressed so that when th e "wink" hinted of leaving every one was to o ha ppy to r egret the close, a nd s uffi ciently happy t o f orget abo ut loneliness, strangn ess, or homes ickness .
