7th of December the feast of the patron of the school was celebrated. Among the
pleasant recollections of that day are the good things we placed ourselves around at the
hours of 12 M. and 6 P. M. This was followed by the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Another free day. On December 10th the Juniors opened the basket ball
season with a win over St. Patrick's of Iowa City. Students begin thinking of the
Christmas vacation. Too many ignoring the rules, hence a reminder in the chapel in
charge of the M. of D.
(Still thinking of those 174 days 'til June 8th.)
The Juniors chalked up another victory on December 17th. This
time the Wilton aggregation were the victims. The Varsity also opened

the Juniors visited East Moline and administered defeat to that city's high school
basket ball team. It is rumored that a certain member of the "Frat House" was
guilty of hiring a taxi to conduct himself to his quarters from the depot. Evidently
prosperous during his stay at home. Mike returned late as was predicted. "I can't
see where that man is no more" said Pieffer. W. Shoenfelder still shows signs that
he needs someone or something to amuse him in
(We will now sit back and, once more, await
June 8th.)
January 7th. Dixon High School came to
battle our Juniors. This proved to be one of
the most interesting games of the year. Waiters kept busy delivering pies and sauces won or
lost on the Dixon game. Lillys makes startling
