Highlite of the holiday season was the semi-formal Christ­ mas Cotillion dinner-dance held at the Hotel Marcy in distant’ Lake Placid. W e somehow managed to arrive there without loss of life or limb. \N o ! These can't be my grades” was one of our remarks after we’d received our report cards. So, we studied and only took time out for the annual three-day Winter Carnival. W h a t a week-end! Just refresh your memory with such events as: the ski torch parade, sock dance, coronation ceremony, inter­ collegiate ski races, the cocktail party, banquet and carnival ball. In rapid succession we \cut-up\ in Kollege Klamity, had a cast jam session afterwards and put PSC on the map with a successful International Students’ Executives Congress. \Spring Fever” hit us all hard and we regretted not having started our term papers sooner. Next, the foresters sponsored their Spring Festival and amazed us with their log-burling, tree-climbing and sawing feats. To climax the week-end and the 1952-53 College year a dance was held at W h ite Pine Camp. In late May the first M o ving Up Day ceremony was held whereby we formally replaced the class of '53 and took our leadership in campus clubs. Before we knew it, finals were upon us. Cram, coffee, cram, more coffee . . . Hurray! W e passed! W e saw the class of '53 graduate and only then did we realize our \golden year” was over. . . In September we returned to our \stamping grounds” for our last year. College enrollment had increased and we had to orient freshmen. Hazing, for us as upper classmen, was great fun and we enjoyed \frightening” wayward freshmen in our hazing court. Even with the \greenies” the first two months of college life seemed more settled when compared with the previous year. Then came the \beard craze;” the Paul Bunyan Dance, first social affair to be held in the new gym. W ith teachers in almost all the square sets, \Swing your partner\ was the key to an evening of fun and frolic. Study, study— that’s what we tried to do from November to January with little aid from PSC’s weather. Although it was a relatively mild winter, the weather was changeable. In fact, the first big snowfall didn't come until January when it snowed every day for two weeks. Winter enthusiasts num ­ bered skiing first with the other sports of ice-skating, tobog­ ganing and snow-shoeing following in popularity.
