One of the most enjoyable events
of the year was the Junior-Senior Re
ception held at the home of Dr. and
Mrs. Geo. L. Dickson, Friday night,
May 12th. The spacious rooms were
decorated with purple and gold crepe
paper, the streamers being hung
from the electric lights to the sides
of the walls, thus carrying out the
color scehme of the Senior class. Pur
ple and gold flowers were used in pro
fusion, also Ivy twined with purple
and gold. The automobile idea was
carried out and as the guests arrived
which numbered about 60, they saw
large signs in purple and gold as,
"Speed ahead to College-Speed lim
it 60 miles exceed the limit," "When
you get to College use your Spot
light," "Park your chewing gum out
Sidle," and many others which caused
a great de'al of merrhnent. In the
yard was a booth decorated in pur
ple adn gold, marked "Filling Sta
tion," where delicious fruit punch
was served. On a tree nearby was
(he sign, "Don't Park Here." The
guest were then matched off and given
auto contests which proved very ex
citing. Miss Isabella Plowden and
Mr. Bennett larvin came out first in
this, receiving a beautiful bouquet of
lillies tied with purple and gold rib
bon. While having progressive con
versation, little Leila O'Bryan pass
ed around a silver basket marked,
"Extra Tires," which proved to be
life saver mints. After these she
next passed a basket of chewing irum
marked, "Patch your tires," Then re
freshments were served which con
sisted of purple and gold block cream
with pound cake. A fter which sev
eral toasts were given. ir. William
Richardson gave an especially good
toast to the faculty. Next each guest
was given a "tongue twister" andl
made to read them aloud at sight.
The souvenirs were then passed
:around which were little cards with
.a yellow and purple spotted dog sit
ting on a lawn with a tin can by him
wh ich had a cigarette stuck in it also
a purple and gold pencil attached to
each one. When the cigarette was
taken out and unrolled it proved to
e a contest which was very enter
taining. Miss Lula Rigby won first

on good terms with all men, we hereby
withdraw all personal reflections and
adverse insinuations against each oth
er that may be in the articles either
of us has written or spoken.
We also agree to let the entire per
sonal controversy drop where it is
and not to renew same by written or
We are glad that this disposition
has been made of the personal ele

gratulate the gentlemen who interest
ed themselves on this outcome.
