March 28, 1947 "Dear Diary, Here we are, on our way to Sun Valley. Our send-off at the station was wonderful! We staggered on to the train with our arms piled high with boxes of candy. Families' "last minute instructions" were completely forgotten as soon as we settled down. Decks of cards were pulled out and violent games of bridge ensued throughout the afternoon...After dinner we crawled into someone's lower berth and had a gab-fest enlivened, of course, by remarks from the upper across the aisle."
For many, Dads' Night is a much-anticipated event that celebrates that special relationship between a father and daughter. The first Dads' Day was organized by Miss Grow at Miss Hockaday's request.
"Miss Hockaday had to go out of town, and was in charge of the first Dads' Day and before she left she said, 'Miss Grow, think of something to honor the dads-they ought to be honored. I was just frantic! When I asked someone what I should do, they said, 'Feed 'em!''
So she did. The first Dads' Day was held in 1940, and who but Miss Grow would think of having the daughters, at a given signal "crown" the fathers with royal crowns. The first Dads' Days were very formal-one was even held in the Crystal Ballroom in the Baker Hotel. But in the war years they became less formal and have remained so ever since.Student Clubs
Student clubs have always been a part of school life. Over the years the formula has remained the same: a girl or group of girls find a common interest and create an organization around that interest. During the 1949 school year, the new clubs established included the Overseas Club, the Typing Club, the Sewing Club, Dramatic Club, Archery Club, Tumbling Club, Music Appreciation Club, Painting and Drawing Club, and the Arts and Crafts Club.
