MAY FLOWERS — In a 1914 Newcomb May Day celebration, the Queen, Theodora Sumner, center, was given a crown and scepter of flowers by the juniors and a large bouquet by the sophomores. Her six maids received baskets of sweet peas. During the event, held annually from 1897 to 1959, the juniors honored seniors with a performance that included dancing around a maypole, weaving ribbons.
