Course I didn't take a date but I The Family that prays Together, stays together the usual letter. 9:27 Miss Jordon finishes writing con sider myself pretty lucky, after I heaid some of the boys and girls talking. Seems as though everything went wrong for some of them. To start off with I heard two fellows talking about the flowers they had bought for their girls. The boy said he played it safe and i got a corsage of white flcAvers, because he didn't know for sure Senior Class Plans Graduation Events By Lois Cannon On March 24, the senior class meeting was called to order. They first discussed about what to leave the color of her formal. Well, that was okay, Dut then you should have heard the other fellow, boy, white formal so he got a red corsage, but as you can imagine she had a light purple formal. I guess she really went through the ceiling. Then I overheard some girls to the school with the money that id 1" a enls as they will have left over after pay-' thOUga he th ught hu rl had a ing for the graduating- exeicises. Mr. Jarman was called in for some help as to what to leave. He then had the class have an open discussion and the final decision will be made at a later date. A dis- cussion was also held on about to have a class reunion in the future or final decision has been arrived on that either This will be discussed further in the next senior class meeting. After the senior 'class meeting was adjourned, Mr. Jarman and the juniors held a joint class meeting. The main purpose for this was to bring up the subject about the affair after the Junior Sen- mor Banquet this year. The two upper classes voted on this issue and it was approved by everyone accept for three. The students signed their names saying whether they would follow the evening plans or not. The group then held a discussion and talked over the event that" took place last year following the banquet. Everyone is much in favor of this affair and plans are being made now to carry out the same program this year as last After the joint class meeting, Mr. Jarman then stayed and discussed with the Senior class about the program that is set up for all seniors; such as Commencement, 'Class Day, and Baccalaureate. to them. This one girl was really mad. I guess her boyfriend had understood that it was to begin at 9:00 Instead of 8:00 p.m. She told the girls she was mad enough that she wasn't going to go with him when he came, but I imagine she was waiting at the door for him and could hardly wait to get staited. Then of course the girls were talking of all the troubles they had to go through to get ready. One girl got her hair wet when she was taking a shower so she had to put it all up again; another girl's formal had to be taken in and lot out But to see the girls you would never think they had any trouble at all. I never saw a prettier group of good-looking girls. Course the boys weren't bad either. Maybe next year I'll have a date.
