SKATING PARTIES ENJOYED
On Friday evening after literary meetings
were concluded, the Jolly Collage groups attired
in their skating outfits, literally
piled into a waiting truok. Tioket-man Lester
Eshleman checked nickels as the ekatars
olimhsd aboard. Several oars, beside the
truok, were driven to the seen® of the even
in g ’ s a c t iv itie s .
Arriving at Myers8 Pond, tha group* a f ter
beooming unfolded from beneath blankets,
jackets, and even firewood, managed to scramble
out to prepare for the fun.
A fir e was b u ilt on the bank and along
with several flares served to light the pond.
Soon the ice was dotted with graceful and ungraceful
skaters, both groups equally enjoying
their ups and dorms.
Hot chocolate waa served after several
hours had quickly passed, and after skating
a little while longer the group was called in
by the sound of a w histle.
After the now rosy-cheeked group had a-gain
assembled for the return trip only two
things were reported missingi Esther Mast had
lost her wntoh and Goldie Weaver’ s shoes could
not be found. Five minutes before midnight
the truok arrived at the school.
On Saturday morning the fa ith fu l vehiole
of transportation braced it s e lf for another
trip to the pond. Half a hundred high school
and short term students enjoyed the privilege
of skating on Virginia io® until noon.
Saturday afternoon found nearly f if t y
more enthusiasts a till undaunted by hours of
skating in cold weather and ready to go again.
Tired but happy, s t i f f but refreshed, the last
boy of the ioe brigade hopped off the worn-out
truck and called it a day just half an
hour befora the Saturday evening’ s serving of
miscellaneous soup and ioe cream.
