In presenting the Hoop-Pole of 1918, we make no apologies. They
are unnecessary. Each member of the staff has given his best efforts to
make this Hoop-Pole the stellar edition, that it is.

Too much credit can not be given to the Business Manager and her
staff with whose financial aid we have been able to offer the many new

To Miss Smith, whose untiring efforts have contributed so largely to
the success, we give our most sincere thanks.

Finally, we offer this Hoop-Pole to you readers as an example of the
quality of work which has been done by the Senior Class of 1918.
