Have you ever stopped to think what makes a
girl like Ardetta Bissey what she is'? No one real-
ly knows the exact answer to this question, of
course. Some call it inner charm, and others call
it personality, but whatever it may be, Ardetta
like all those who are successful in dealing
with people, situations, and life in general, Ar-
detta knows when to be serious. There is proof
of this in the fact that she has been secretary of
Pep Club, and was elected vice-president of the
senior class. When the right time comes, though,
she easily fits into all the fun in and out of
school. Her social success reached its climax this
year when she was elected Homecoming Queen.
All this and she has ambition, too!
We have taken a peek into Ardetta's future,
and have found that it includes study at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, possibly in the field of nur-
sing. She probably won't remain unattached very
long, for her plans include marriage too.
lt is very difficult to know Ardetta and not
like her. In fact, it iust doesn't happen that way!
Those of us who have known her well during the
past four years have learned to admire her. Why?
Probably iust because she's Ardetta. We all feel
that our high school years were made happier, a
little more full, and a little more complete, be-
cause we have come to know hei as a friend.
