Gladys Evans -- "Much sought after is she who is demure" Gladys is a sort of an anchor for our class of frivolous people. She has never, to our knowledge, been late or "played hookey." She always has her lessons and is generous in lending them. Her smile has become a necessity with us and we are not trembling for the pupils to whom she will offer an education. The smiles will be distributed regardless of place or person, but the educational part will be administered religiously in specified doses. Gladys looks like a wild rose, but that is the only bit of wildness there is about her. James Schoonover -- "Two similar tetrahedrons are to each other as the cubes of the corresponding sides." James S. is a Geometry shark, but is not responsible for his other short comings as he belongs to the "Big Four." This gang of desperadoes so influenced his innocent, susceptible mind when it was of Freshman caliber that the baleful effects are yet to be seen. Do not try, however, to account for Jimmy. why he sulks in Zoology, how he came to get 99 in English, and wherefore the girls like him so well-all are unfathomable mysteries. It is even rumored that he was once involved in a swearing match and that he is "work-brittle." We sadly shake our heads and say we do not know. So don't ask us. Edith Moore -- "O woman, in our hours of ease, Uncertain, coy, and hard to please." Edith has an unusual personality,-coy, effusive, charming, but not weak or vacillating. When she pouts she is just too sweet for anything. Her laugh is infectious, her freckles provocative, her curly locks irresistible. Her musical talent has been of great aid to us. Thanks to her long and delightful "piano-forte studies" (given at opportune times), we have been saved several tests and have narrowly escaped missing a regular recitation or two. As a child she aspired to a foreign and titled alliance, but now that she is a woman she has put away childish things. For a while it seemed that Welshman might do, but even he hasbeen discarded in favor of her childhood's Prince Charming. She says: "Give me a good, plain, American well-digger." Edith is to be a music teacher and can wash dishes beautifully.
