Alice N. McDonald -- "Her voice was ever soft, Gentle, and low, an excellent, thing in woman." "Mac" came to us to be a Senior, attracted by the radiance of our knowledge. She is of the "suffragette type" and has more real force and vigor in the management of affairs than many men. By no means small is Mac, but her heart is the biggest thing about her. If let alone, she would become a raving maniac over basket-ball and, even now, considers everyone a weakling who will not measure arms with her. With Mac as champion of the class, we have ruled with a rod of iron. No wonder! Merely a piece of her mind delivererd with accustomed force and cogency reduces a doughty foe to an humble vassal. Yet "on her tongue, is the law of kindness." Isn't she a puzzle? Karl Butt -- "A real brick of gold, madam, which has round corners and is positively the latest thing out. Just dusted this morning." "Deac" is a fusser outright. He is also very sympathetic and could not bear the thought of leaving us without him, so self-sacrificing, he "stayed over" and will face the world with us this year. He plays the viiolin like a siren (do they have such things?) and sings well for a boy. It was wonderful how he got through Geometry and Vergil so easily. They were ginger-snaps to him. He buys the sweetest boxes of chocolates and is a universal favorite with the girls, partly on this account, and partly because of the variety of his neck-ties and the deliciously proper press of his pants. It is rumored that Deac is to be a farmer but it will hardly carry him that far, even "if love be madness." Myrtle Horn -- "Within a little leafy dwell A modest violet grew." Myrtle came to us when a Freshman and, being favorably impressed, has remained. She is a fine girl and, aside from wearing her apron to school and little things like that, has given her under-classmen friends an excellent example of what a real Senior should be. She has day-dreams, however, which, if they should become known, would surprise her classmates. She aspires to be a chorus girl in Harley ILghty's soon-to-be sensational hit, "The Mad-cap Heart Bruiser" and Animal Show. To acquire grace she has been practicing dancing before a mirror in the privacy of her apartments. She, too, means to teach school until something more enjoyable appears.
