JACK HOUSNICK MASCOT What, pray, can be more important than to liiilcl the position of mascot? Or who, pray, could be more worthy of this honor than this rollicking little lad, without whom he are sure success would be impossible; and to whom, un- doubtedly, is due the credit of being responsible for keeping our class under the smiling auspices of Fate. ' as it not he that was always willing to plav his part and to carry our colors to vic- torv ? From the time that he was assigned to this illustrious |iost, in the younger days of our class, he has gradually won the love of every member of our class, and today carries the heart of everv senior on his sleeve. " I)A1)I) " 1 " GROTZ When throughout the halls of B. S. X. S. is felt the reign of silence, and you are not yet in the folds of slumber, and when in the midst of all the solemnity and quiet of night you hear the creaking of quietly moving footsteps, all vour fears are banished and at once there flas ' ies into your mind the joyous thought that " Here is Oaddx — jthe night watchman. " Who is there, pray, that has so much gained the love and affection of every student at Nor- mal during these past nine years of " Daddy ' s " watch here, as this kindly, loving, old gentle- man? Is it any wonder that, as he passes through the halls on his nightly duty, he will be cheerfully greeted by the welcoming voices of " Kello, Daddy! " coming now and then from various rooms and at times when peace and slumber are supposed to reign supreme. Dear to the hearts of us all, we shall al- wavs remember him, who, while we slept, watched over us like the " Shepherd watches over his sheep. " I ' diji (1)1, lluilJl ,J-l- i ill

If SGT. GEORGE BEDNARK Wilkes-Barre Normal Course; Philo; Class Pres., ' 18; Class Treas., ' 17; Track (3); Basketball (3); Baseball (3); Philo Drama (3); Secy. B. D. C; Y. M. C. A. Oh, here he is, girls! Come, take a look at him. The real genuine George. Our sweet, charming and smiling little boy has returned to us. And he is the very same George as of old ! George hails from Wilkes-Barre. He came to us in our S ' ophomore ear and — Ve Gods! did you ever see the like of him! He im- mediately gained fame and popularity with the speed of a 60,000 horse power steam engine. He had been with our class until the Fall in the beginning of our Senior year, at which time he heard the call of his country and joined the colors. And when at camp — Boy, didn ' t he rise! His superiors, forseeing something in the physiognomy of his cerebrum, soon made him sergeant and if the war hadn ' t ended we are sure he would have been made a Brigadier Creneral. But the Hun was soon beaten, and so Cieorge was honorably discharged. He im- mediately returned to B. S. N. S. amid the welcoming greetings of all — especially the girls, for George, you know, is so bashful ! Studies? Oh yes. In other words, George would have been an honor student if all the other members of the class had died. Did you ever see Cjeorge have a book? Maybe, but not a text book. We will never forget ou, (ieorge, or our wit and popularity or your ridiculous humor. PETER C. F. CASTELLANI Old Forge Medical Prep Course; B. D. C; Philo; Base- ball ' 18; Overseas Service. If you will look among the many faces of our class, you will there find one that belongs to a seemingly quiet and modest young man. After studying for sometime at an academy at Springfield, Mass., he joined our class in its Junior year and look up work in the Medical Prep Department, it being his ambition to study medicine. But before he could be with us an ' more than a year, he heard the call of his coun- try for volunteers, and like all true Americans he joined the colors. And what a wonderful experience he has had. Really, we wonder whether he is too modest to be proud of it. Yes, he has felt the sting of the enemy ' s weapon during the battle of the Argonne, for a scar can be seen on his left hand, which will always marit him as a hero. After spending nine months at Camp Meade, Md., he boarded the Leviathan and sailed for France, where he saw six months ' of foreign ser ' ice. He belonged to the Regimental Infirmary, 314 Infantry, 79th Division, A. E. F. Ftti r One Hundrni-elefen
