Class History of the 18's. On September 21, 1914, a husky bunch of nearly ninety, possessing much of the greeness of our April meadows, but full of ambition and determination, trooped up the broad steps of Murdock and formed the foundations of the class of 1918. The reins of leadership were handed to Russell and we set out at once with mighty strides, and some hesitation, to cover the ground of "idiocy" laid out for the special benefit of the Freshmen. One of our members became Secretary and Treasurer of the Murdock republic. Regardless of the "soph's" one year of experience, we defeated them in the flag-rush. We again came into prominence the night before Founder's Day with several exhibitions of high school spirit on Main street in Beaver. In "Family Affairs" we displayed our dramatic talent, together with the beautiful purple and white banner of the '18's placed conspicuouly near the stage. During our second year our president, feeling powerful in his increased knowledge, joined the then Junior class, but the vice president stepped in with equal ability and carried us successfully through the remainder of the year. Our class parties and dances have been among the best given. Our Sophomore Hop still remains vivid in the minds of all who attended. The large purple moon in the center of the hall lighted with white electric bulbs, shed its mystic light overe the gay crowd and helped make things jolly. In our Sophomore, as in our Freshamn year, we claimed the honor of being the largest class then at Murdock. Although we have decreased in numbers we have increased in quality. Entering upon the year 1916-17, we have very bright hopes for our future success, ever eager to follow our motto: "Progression." Eva Bowman.
