JUNIOR SLEIGH RIDE PARTY
Amid the shouts and clamor of a happy throng, the Junior Class of N. H. S. wended its ways to the home of one of its old “Stand-bys”, Norma Kurth. This merry group was chaperoned by three Seniors who were out for a good time as well as the rest. Although the weather was ideal all were glad to get in over the register when the destination was reached.
The evening was spent in playing games, telling jokes, and eating a delightful luncheon, which all heartily partook of as the refreshing night air was just the thing to arouse one’s appetite.
After being led in a most noisy yell by our renowned cheer-leader, all started home after wishing Norma many thanks for the delightful occasion Reports the following Monday showed that all survived the trip and the ride home without any difficulties except Ken Smith, who ate too much ice cream, “Butch” Skroch, who had to walk most of the way and Marie Short, who couldn’t find room for her feet.
