Marian is no " skipper, " but her room has been known to harbor " skippers " much against her will, of course.

MARY E. WILLIAMS Suijar Notch Cnmmercial Course, ' 15; Normal Course; Callie; Capt. Class Basketball, ' 16; Secy. Class, ' 17; Second Year Contest; Callie Drama, ' 17, ' 19; Treas. G. A. A., ' 18; Vice-Pres. Class, ' 18; Pres. Class, ' 19; Callie. Like a beam of sunshine coming from afar on its ethereal journey to gladden a world, so Mary has come to us from that insignificant lit- tle town of Sugar Notch, bringing with her that wcet and genial disposition and that ever- lasting smile which has captivated the affec- tion and admiration of every student at Normal. Truly, she is the sweetest, fairest and among the most popular of the girls in our class. She has a mass of dark l:)eautiful hair and big beautiful eyes, which have not failed to charm and fascinate anyone that may have chanced to meet their stare; while beneath her love for fun and jollity one will find she carries a heart of gokl, for she also is kind, gentle and sym- pathetic. She joined our class in the fall of ' 15 in pursuit of the Normal Course, after having graduated from the Commercial Department in the spring of the same year. Marv is a distinctive member of the Sapphire Club. This may seem kind of queer, and the name of this society may sound somewhat mystical; but we have not as yet been able to discover i ' s probable origin. Of course its no use asking Mary about it; she delights in being able to keep her secrets to herself and keep others guessing. If there is any quality that we admire in this little lass, it is the frankness with which she expresses herself to others. One cannot long be in her presence without soon feeling as if one were speaking to his most intimate friend. She posesses a will and determination such that she seldom fails to do what she says or thinks is right; and it generally is for the sake and benefit of the class. Tennis? Don ' t menticEi it — this is Mary ' s hobby. She is one of our star players and prides herself in being able to beat everyone else. In the spring and fall of the year you can always find her on the tennis courts, devoting all of her leisure moments to this pastime. Surely there are many things for which we shall always remember Mary; but one thing is certain, and that is, that Mary will be recognized by us as a very studious girl (?). She doesn ' t believe in being " cooped " up with a book in a dingy, little room, when she can pos- sibly be W ' here she can enjoy life to her heart ' s content — in the open. Among Mary ' s many virtues, there is one which we are inclined to think she has ac- quired from her reading of old Ben Franklin; and that is, " Early to bed and early to rise. " Mary is a sound sleeper and an early riser, and is always on time for her classes, of course ( ?). Last, but foremost to us, is the fact that Mary, as the president of our class, has safely piloted us in the stormy waters through which our class had to sail in the last round of its career. In the history of the school, she has been the first young lady to attain this honor, and has proven, beyond a doubt, that tactfulness and commanding genius are not char- acteristics which are inherent in members of the opposite sex only. Truly, she hasn ' t failed us, and we owe to her the greatest debt of gratitude for her untiring efforts in striving to make our class as it is. Toward Mary we extend our heartiest wishes for the utmost success and happiness, which we are sure will be enjo ed by her in the future. Paye One Hundred-seven
