FFA Initiation and the Freshman The FFA initiation is one of the most terrifying and embar- rassing experiences a person could go through. Being a freshman is bad enough without the help of any silly initiation. The initiation will get you so sick you can't eat a thing for the rest of the day. One of the first things you have to do is wear a crocker sack or a dress to school. That's bad enough by itself without having to put on make- up and carry your rotten lunch in a bucket! The worst is yet to come, The other FFA members make you bite into green persim- mons and drink syrup. You are very lucky ff you go through the day without biting into thirty green persimmons! Those per- simmons turn your mouth in- side out. They are the worst things you can possibly eat. We might have had it bad this year, but we will do every- thing we can to make it worse for the Future Farmers of America next year. So green- hands you had better beware!
