On May 3rd at 8:00 p.m. the Seniors came to the High School building with the “gladdest” hearts of all the year, and they were met by the Juniors who seemed no less happy. The hallways and entrances of the building had been made beautiful by flowers and decorations of rainbow colors. Every Senior felt that he was wearing the rainbow and was looking for the pot of gold.
The period of entertainment was a glorious hour of fun. Beautiful prizes for winners in contests were given to the couples W. L. Lee and Miss Aline Tanner, and Mr. Hooter and Miss Allegra Phillips. The Juniors with the help of Miss Kilpatrick had left nothing undone that could add to the pleasure of the evening.
When the time came for refreshments Mrs. Green played “The Long Long Trail” as a Junior led the procession up the stairway and into the Home Economics Department where rainbows ruled again in decorations, flowers, favors, and a two course luncheon. The refreshments prepared by the Juniors under Mrs. McDonald’s supervision can never be surpassed. It was no trouble to “Put a rainbow round your troubles” while here.
From the time the Seniors had received their beautiful had painted invitations with their rainbows and sweet peas, they had looked forward to this event and now they wish it could happen all over again.
