One-half of the police fore were rushed to one end of : he town and the other policeman came up to our end . The town was prepared for a redletter day—there was a football team in town . But we fooled them ! We had Hugh W . Speer to care for us and guide us . If he had not been with us our mothers would not have permitted us to make the trip . Up in the hotel , every once in s while , Hugh would leave his studies and come to see what we were doing . Every time he would visit us he would find us busily engaged in checker games , or probably prodigiously knitting or crocheting . When we went walking on the street we all debated , for we thought we might attract some Harrisonburgonians to A .
