CAMPFIRE SUPPER HELD
BY GIRL RESERVES APR. 1
Semesters 1 and 2 Cook Supper—Play
Games and Sing Songs
CANDLE CEREMONY PERFORMED
The Girl Reserves of semesters one
and two went on a hike Friday, April
1st. A large campfire was built and
supper was cooked after the hike. A
candle ceremon'y was performed super
vised by Misses Sarah Booth and Mary
Harrell. After playing games and sing
ing campfire songs, the meeting was
adjourned and the girls returned to
Juniors, juniors, juniors, how they
cheered as Mr. Bob Douglas stepped
out on the platform dressed in short
knee pants, boyish shoes, a big red tie,
and clasping a stick of candy in his
hand. “Now, us juniors,’’ he began,
“think we ought to be seniors and
maybe should be sophomores, so we’ll
let the audience be the judge.”
Presto! Out came the girls and fac
ulty, as nice a lot of out-of-date flappers
and teahounds as you please. Big,
showy ribbons were in the girls’ hair
and each wore rompers. The women
of the faculty came out in jerseys and
black bloomers while the men wore
white shirts and white ducks. The
game was somewhat one-sided, the fac
ulty having the high score.
In came Mr. Douglas just then with
a bundle of packages. Miss Wheeler,
seizing the hint, stuck in her oar and
pulled out some pies, too, five to be
exact. So unlike Litte Lack Honier
said delightedly: “Let’s have an eating
contest, of course, excluding the audi
ence.” “Fine,” and the three juniors,
Hilda Davidson, and John Brown,
stepped from without back-stage, and
began eating with all haste. The pies
disappeared fast and probably someone
of the trio saw their great-granny a
few hours later.
J'he last feature of the evening was
a basketball game between the girls
and the boys. Leroy Tackett seeined
to be the center of attraction on the
boys’ side in his high silk hat and funny
spectacles. AYhilc Marion Curtis stood
foremost among the girls, jumping cen
ter with tall Ray Lewis. This game
proved to be another mix-up game, the
girls called themselves the winners but
were aided by the boys. As the final
whistle blew, “Professor” elegantly
tossed his hat into the basket where it

No human hand can bring it back,
The yesterday into today.
No evil deed done then
Can be erased away.
For when the hand of God
Has writ the deeds of the past,
The coming day cannot be made
Just like the last.
No human tear can blot one word.
No efforts erase a letter.
’Tis as though the day just passed
Were bound with an iron fetter.
Yea, the hand of Fate we cannot rule;
We cannot turn it back.
For today will yet follow yesterday
Along time’s well worn track.
