Class Characteristics and Incidents

Seven members ---mystical number. Class spirit. School papers on special occasions, having poems (?) with personal hits. Delightful class day excursions, one being to Richfield Springs. "We were accompanied by our beloved principal, Professor Poland, and spent an ideal day in spite of my blistered hands --- the result of trying to learn how to row and neglecting to lift the anchor." Lively gymnastics exectued by Professor Poland, when he showed the class in physics the power of compressed air. Musical tastes of members. "The thought of our past years in me doth breed perpetual benediction."----Wordsworth.
