THE SENIOR LUNCHEON
One of the most pleasurable
incidents in the life of the Senior class was the luncheon tendered them
by the Young Men's Club.
It had been rumored for several days that it was the
intention of the Club to entertain the class, but we did not give
ourselves up to the idea until we were officially invited by Mr. Abrams
and Mr. Reese. Then, of course, we debated (?) over the
problem of accepting or declining, when President Henry Beach
accepted for the class in all his "dignification."
On Friday the Senior girls were dressed in new ginghams
and the boys looked their best, too. At one o'clock that eventful
hour, autos awaited us and we rode in stately fashion through the town to
the club rooms. The twenty-six Seniors were accompanied by their
eight teachers, and due to the absence of these important personages, all
the school was granted a half holiday.
The Seniors were seated at a long center table and mid
laughing and chatting the realization came that we were making our debut,
our first appearance in public.
It was grand! The class colors, green and white,
were predominant in the color scheme and a placard bearing 1922 overhung
the entrance. A delicious three-course luncheon was served and then
began the rattle of silver. During the meal Chairman Lambright
conducted the business meeting and then Mr. Reese took the chair.
Sidney Nathan, of the class of '15, made an interesting address on
the history of Glynn Academy. Isaac Wengrow, of the class of
'18, spoke on "School Spirit." Then, speakers of the
were called and Henry Beach and Mary Gignilliat responded
with interesting remarks. From all appearances, "Beachy" gives
promise of being a celebrated orator and "Midget" has already reserved her
seat in Congress. Miss Rucker, Miss Macon, and Mr. Eadie
supplemented these remarks with views of the faculty and assured the
members of their appreciation for their interest in the school.
To conclude the most enjoyable occasion, clever
parodies on familiar songs, relative to the Young Men's Club and
Brunswick, were sung after which we all took leave. It was all over!
But each member of the class of '22 will have pleasant memories of that
entertainment and the club may feel assured of our appreciation of their
courtesy to us.

|"If you remember just what stairs to go up--
And do not wish all class the bell would ring;
If you can be on time at school each morning,
And lustily join in when others sing;
If you can get the ice cream condish habit,
And keep your smile when told the cream is out;
If you can exercise with vim and relish,
Nor fake them thru with grumbling and a pout;
If you can wait, and not grow tired of waiting
For report cards which are long since over due;
If you can go and cheer for the Red Terrors",
And put up a fight against the "White and Blue";
If every night you finish all your home work,
Complete your themes, have study periods free,
I'll say you're quite a Model Student--
A credit to Old Glynn Academy."
