JUNIOR CLASS ENTERTAINS SENIORS

One of the prettiest entertainments given the '19 class thruout their whole Senior year
was the Easter party of the Junior class.
Despite the fact that the two classes had been friendly (?!) enemies for quite a while,
the Juniors took great pains to make the whole affair a delightful one for the Senior class.
They certainly succeeded.
The lovely country home of Miss Elizabeth Porter, member of the Junior class, was used.
There were nearly a hundred guests present to enjoy the hospitality of the Junior class
in the home of Miss Porter.
The ice that was served, later in the evening, was moulded in the form of little Easter
rabbits. The favors were tiny rabbits' nests, of candy eggs.
The good will of the Junior class evinced on this occasion will cement the friendship of
the erstwise enemies.

FACULTY HOST OF SENIOR CLASS
The Faculty of Grove School added new laurels to the crown the Senior class wears
with such becoming modesty. The entire Senior class, with the exception of one or two,
were the guests of the Faculty at a matinee party.
After the show, an ice course was served at Morris' Luncheonette. The decorations of
Grove and the Senior class were lovely.
The Seniors appreciated this manifestation of the good will of the faculty very much,
as it is; but even more, as this is the first class in Grove that the Faculty has ever entertained.

SOPHS ENTERTAIN FOR THEIR "SISTERS"
The Sophomores, our dear "one-time sisters" entertained the Senior class delightfully
during Commencement week with a party at Grove.
Ferns and flowers decorated the lower floor and upper hall. The entire Sophomore and
Senior classes were invited. In the unique forms of entertainment that occupied the largest
part of the evening, the bonds of good fellowship that existed so strongly between us in "days
gone by," were, in a measure, revived.
Late in the evening an ice course was served.

E. B. L. S. - P. L. S. ENTERTAIN
The last evening of Commencement week was occupied by a party given the Senior class
by the two girls' literary societies, Elizabeth Browning Literary Society and the Polymnia
Literary Society.
The decorations of flowers and ferns were lavish in the upper and lower halls. Of course,
the party was well attended.
The enmity of societies, classes, of little "cliques" and "select bunches" were ignored
and eliminated by the Blue and White of Grove that characterized in the ice course that
was served late in the evening. The favours were tiny "diplomas" tied in GREEN AND GOLD
with a wish for good things written in them.
The whole affair left a very pleasant memory with the departing class.

LAST SENIOR PARTY
"The last Senior Party" - that had more of a wrench to the heart, and caused the sur-
reptitious wiping of tears more than any other event of our Commencement and Graduation
Exercises. Those jolly parties - and the last one!
We had it at Grove, of course, in Hamilton Hall, and the long lower hall. The colors
of the occasion were, of course, GREEN AND GOLD. All the forty-two members of the Senior
class and about forty other guests were present.
As was our custom in "dear, dead days," all thru the evening we drifted in twos and
threes, back to the "kitchen" (Domestic Science laboratory) to eat ice cream and cake; and
have punch drinking contests (long before refreshments were served); to laugh and chatter;
to see if there were enough spoons; to see if the plates were in danger of being broken; then
to drift on back to our "cozy corners"; and finally, a silent, half-tearful farewell to Grove and
our dear Senior class.
