SENIORS HAVE BIG TIME
From Wednesday's Daily.
Yesterday was a day of triumph
for the seniors of the high school
and one of deep and besetting gloom
for the freshmen, who are just start
ing out on their long four years trip
through the realms of the high
school. The senior girls decided on a
stunt that aggrevated the spirit of
the underclassmen, when they don
ned shoe strings composed of green
and white, the freshmen colors. The
incident caused much fun for both
classes as the freshmen kept the sen
iors on the go when not in the school
room to avoid capture and the re
moval of the offending shoestrings,
and the seniors thought they had
slipped one over on their jounger
The ukase has gone forth that
hereafter there will be no class col
ors worn in the assembly room at the
high school as the result of the In
cident so the seniors have nothing
to fear in the way of retaliation from
the aggrieved younger classmen.
