Post Card No. 1045 features Hello Walk, the Ladies Dormitory, Commerce Building and Old Main and is addressed to Miss Ida Swenson, Vasa, Minn., c/o Cls. Lind. The message on the front reads, "Did you ever see anything like this? Once upon a time there were some children that enjoyed playing hide and seek around these corners. They thought it was great fun, but large footprints were seen in the morning. The footprints are gone now, so are the children. That's the end of the story." Also written, "Road to Prexy. Beware." The back reads, "6/10 Aitkin, Minn. Pax Vobiscum! Hello Teacher! How goes the work? Do you still have enough to keep you from getting lonesome? I would like to drop into your schoolroom some day and take in some of your lectures. I might need some pointers. My school commenced here June 3, and there are now 23 chaps enrolled and not very bad ones either. It is the nicest place I have had for two years. It seems nice to have it easy. Am staying at Olaf Olson's home. Have a pleasant time here. His folks are so nice, so is Olaf. Rev. Sandeen] says that Olaf became a so much better boy while attending G.A.C. Can you trace the reason for it?- This is a fine country, all pine region. Rev. S. and I were to a box social nine miles out in the woods Sat. Eve. Even here the people know of our famous reception games. They must have been to college to learn them. We felt fine (?) for our work yesterday after a few hours sleep. Greetings from [triangle] (I used as much space as I dared)."
