Spirited Juniors Enliven Campus

In all that we, the class of '59 did, whether scholastic or social, we brought a spirited enthusiasm rarely seen on the Prevost campus. From the '57 - '58 scene we carry off many moments to cherish: the Henmon-Nelson tests, the numerous absentees during the Asiatic flu, and the first place in the patron-card drive. Spirits reached their apex when we trekked, on Lincoln's birthday, to the Ford plant in Somerville and to M.I.T. in Boston. Many were the good times during this memorable year.
