Ione R. Smith -- "My lady's daintiness is exquisite." Ione is one of our pimer, er-I mean charter members. Perhaps you did not noticer her as she does not play bass drum in the band. She's "as high as my heart," but, to our knowledge, is not especially in love. Her smile is for everyone, her temper for an intimate few. Not always a strict adherent to the cause of higher education, she is, nevertheless, a conversationalist always in demand, for "sweetness and light" unsurpassed. Ione's neckwear and Vergil translations are alike unimpeachable. She could be French milliner but prefers to be a school teacher because, if the latter, she can "got to Marion" this summer. Carleton R. Winks -- "He and hist motley crew would sink the ship ere they would give it up." Carleton is not a man to be trifled with. Socially, he is successful; intellectually, a star; morally, misunderstood; athletically, excusable physically, to be feared but not obeyed. He can't talk brilliantly in English because he has only "scanned" the lesson, but he winks beautifully and is always ready to do Herricks a kindness. Carleton renders life interesting to the faculty and makes them earn their money. Still there is an incipient martyr within him. Stiff collars hurt his neck but he wears them all the time. Otherwise all we can say is that he is addicted to candy and telling the truth ahs never been known to lose his temper. Theda Thompson -- "A gracious woman receiveth honors." Theda has not always moved among us with her quiet, unassuming manner. She is a product of country life and much meditation and the pansy is undoubtedly her flower. Theda plays basket-ball and has a lovable disposition. while not entirely hopeless along other lines, she is a veritable shark in Latin. It is almost impossible to keep from quoting when writing of her. Theda is thoroughly worth while knowing, but you will have to work to get acquainted with her. We think she will make good in whatever she chooses.
