Dragon Debuts

  • From 1914 -1933, Girls Basketball was the most popular and organized sport.
  • The Lovers Club had full pages in the first two Yearbooks. Their flower was the red rose, the club "yell" was a gentle sigh, and Cupid was the General manager. It had more than 20 members listed along with its officers and a lovely drawing of a young couple in an embrace but nothing about its formation, goals, etc. It does seem a bit risqué for 1915-1916. One is left wondering what happened to this club?
