Af ter this fifteen minute delay we pro ceeded to Pandora. Upon arriving there we rang out with about six chor uses of "Bluffton Forever.” However we failed to wake anyone up over there so we proceeded home. We arrived home safe and sound but felt as though we were football veterans. After piling out of the wagon we met with the third and last tragedy. No one had keys to the cafeteria. This was solved, however, when Coach Burcky went home after his keys. W’e then enjoyed refreshments and concluded that—a hayride isn’t a hay ride unless you have a little hard luck to go with it.
