Excerpt from Holy Ghost College Bulletin, 1921, Vol. 29 The social activities Of the next day were a repetition of those Of the preceding evening. Jimmy, by hook or crook, always managed to be in the party that contained the light Of his life. Whether at tennis, or golf, or canoeing, Jimmy was Johnny on the spot.' (isn't that original?) Night came and with it a moonlight trip on the water. Now sometimes 'moonlight' is just as intoxicating as 'moonshine.' on water. Isn't it so? Now to the charms of moonlight on the water add the presence of one whose personality and being are intoxicating, and delirium results. TO put it weakly, Jimmy was delirious. Not alone by moonlight, or by water, or by the presence Of his adored one, but by all these plus the stupid boredom of Tom Brown who chanted romantic poetry into the ears Of his adored one. It was bad enough (the poetry) but Jimmy felt that Tom ought to know better. Oh, how he longed for something to happen! Something to relieve-this monotonous trip. He prayed that the little launch would strike a rock, or lose its rudder, or even be totally wrecked, then he would show them all. But no such thing happened. With only a glance or two of amused indifference at our hero, his cherished one passed the evening listening to Tennyson or Shakespeare.
