Richard, Charlie, and W. Stanford
went to choir practice, of all places!
At the same time' a dozen varied in
cidents took place. Margaret O. fell
out of the bathtub, I am told. Jean
Wooten glimpsed what was believed
to be a little devil. It turned out
to be “Tinker” in his red pajamas.
The BPPA (Black Petunia Poker As
sociation) was in full swing at all
times except after twelve midnight—
Saturday. (Also a few rummy par
ties.) Harold was disappointed to
find that the “Gaieties” were closed

Starting back, we discovered every
one had the brogue. Richard was so
wrapped up in it that he could not
pronounce many words: elevator was
alevator and finally came out lift. In

wore a lift uniform!!!
On the trip we passed the “Harris”
high school. The joke’s on Tommy.
At Endless Caverns the tall and the
fat had a rough time. In spite of
the fact that the guide forbade any
one to remove the stone formations.
Peeler, Jake, Streetman, and W. Stan
ford have stalactites imbedded in
their heads, while Big Bailey almost
