Her work lasts through the entire day, but it never outlives her happy buoyancy. Brutus deplored Caesar's ambition but he admired his energy. We gasp at Alice's energy but we most sincerely laud and admire her ambition. To meet her casually, one would not dream of the energetic grasping for knowledge that marks her daily course, for she is happy, lightfhearted, gay and cheerful, never too busy for a friendly word, nor too deeply intent on work to miss a joke. She has helped to lighten the seemingly numerous trials of school life, when we were groaning beneath our burden of work, Alice cheerfully gave us a worthfwhile exampleAto laugh at trouble and do one's best. After all, sucf cess without work would be an empty victory, and work with' out success, a noble defeat. Alice will have neither. She has the will to work and the power to succeed, so who could or would deny her? Surely not we to whom she has been the living exemplar of cheerful perseverance and who predict for her the happy reward of earnest endeavor. 22

A tall, slim girl whose golden hair forms an aureola enhancing the sweet beauty of her countenancefsuch is our Grace. If life were a game of chess, she would surely be the queen. She moves slowly and gracefully, without worry or trouble, and she sweeps all before her. Nature endowed her with queenlike beauty and intelligence, but it depended on Grace to make the most of the latter, and she has not failed. There is an old saying, "Any port in a storm," but we are grateful to have a safer refuge than that. Grace is our port in every storm. How many times, when all seems lost, some wily student cries, "Ask Grace, she knows!" And she always does. Four years of her companionship have made her very dear to us. She is everyone's friend and a good playmate, but she knows that one cannot succeed without study, so she studies-hence sucf cess, the reward of earnest endeavor. If the world can resist her charms-but we smile at the mere thought of that! May Grace reach the peak of her ambitiong and she will, for the heights of success are waiting for her. 21

Irene is endowed with one of those winning smiles and sweet dispositions which gain friends and succeed in holding them through the many vicissitudes of school life. Her vivacious character has earned for her a chosen place among our number, and ofttimes when we are becoming too engrossed in some wearisome task, Irene's enticing and magnetic joviality attracts us by some pantomime which she seems to have prepared for such occaf sions. She was not passed by when it came to the distribution of talents, for she is quick and able in all her undertakings.
