There is a sentiment attached to this tradition, and the Seniors feel more of a class unity since it is their last year to par- ticipate in the school activities. And they want to have something to take with them to hold them in closer con- tact with their fellow students and teachers after they have graduated. luss, representing the 11, was also included in th In connection with the ballad form, Miss class is trying its hand ginal ballads.
