The Cat’s Paw- General News
Monday and Tuesday: We were enrolling for the new semester. Schedules and conflicts were being straightened out.
During these two days we couldn’t study. Our minds were far away from books. We seemed to hear the sound of wedding bells. Everywhere there was a suppressed air of excitement. We felt that something was going to happen- and so it did.
Wednesday morning: The marriage of one of the most beloved girls of old C. H. S., the girl of sweet voice and happy disposition- Alga Moran. Of course you all know who she married. Who else could it have been but Carter? Alga is the first girl of our bunch to marry and you can’t imagine how old we’re feeling by now. We hated so much to lose her, but we hope her life may be one sweet dream of happiness.
We will have to elect another yell-leader, as Alga had that office. She was a member of the Junior Music Club, the S. S. V, the Alpha Omega Literary Society, and sang in the girls’ quartet. How we’ll miss her voice from many of our school activities and entertainments. And so we wish Alga and Carter- Mrs. and Mrs. Carter McCalman- all the success and joy of life possible.
Thursday: We had assembly and sang several songs. When we started to sing “Aunt Dinah’s Quilting Party” and “Seeing Nellie Home” Mrs. Coffey told the boys to sing it like they knew just how it was done. They certainly did sing it; however, several substitutions of names were used which made the song more interesting.
The Spanish class was very much tickled Thursday afternoon. What could have been the matter? Everything seemed funny. A search is being made for the ones who cause such merriment. As soon as they are found they immediately will be brought to justice.
Agriculture seems to be a very popular subject this term. Why are the girls taking it? We thought agriculture was for boys. Well, perhaps we shall soon find out.
Friday: Same old daily grind. Restless study during the activity period. The only activity being supposed to work in our brains.
(Other articles from the twenties mention Alga’s music performances and one lists her as the daughter of Mrs. G. B. Moran.)
