Our team score was nearly four times as many points as our nearest opponent in athletics.
Charles Nester, though a junior in age, won first place in Senior
Darwin (Buttsy) Huddleston, though shortest in stature, proved to be
longest in ability as an orator, when he defeated two other boys
much larger, for first place in Junior Boy's Declamation. Both boys
brought back to his school a large and beautiful loving cup.
Virginia Greenwood won second place in Junior Girl's Declamation.
Monday morning at chapel was a scene of recounting victories, and of much enthusiasm for our winners. On Friday night the winning contestants and teachers will probably celebrate their victories by building a bonfire on the campus and having a picnic lunch and games.
