JOHN H. ROURKE A.B. 62 Prentice Rd. Newton Centre, Mass. GovenimeiU Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4; Law and Gov- ernment Academy 3, 4; Von Pas- tor History Academy 1, 2, 3, 4. A graduate of B. C. High, John ' s particular interest during his four years at the Heights has been government. Probably no student has followed more closely the courses given by that expert in law and government, Dr. Harry Doyle. Athletics have always been of great interest to him. Closely following the current opinions of the major sports writers, he is ever ready to render new information, cite the latest rumor, and elicit a novel opinion formulated on material generally held inaccessible by most of us. John has as his special hobby horsemanship, and spends much of his spare time examining new racers at stables, or watching some famous horse perform a new feat in a steeplechase. John intends to continue his studies in law school upon graduation, and we wish him all success in diat field.

E. ELMER ROSS, JR. B.S. 315 Windchester St. Newton Highlands, Mass. Chemistry Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4; Math. Acad- emy 2; German Academy 2; Chemist ' s Club (Vice-Pres.) 4; Class Pres. 4; Track 1, 2, 3, 4. However short the span between his home in Newton and Boston College, it cannot serve as a standard by which to measure Elmer Ross ' scope of activity. From the outset he has won increasing recognition through the medium of a sincerity and an enthusiasm which has over- shadowed every action he has performed, every conviction he has held . To various organizations such as the Mathematics Academy, the German Academy, and the Chemist Club, he has imparted this laudable spirit — for which the crowning reward was the election of Elmer as their president by the members of our class. Whatever transactions he may encourage, whether professional or social, in his capacity as chemist, Elmer Ross will impress upon them the indelible mark of warmth, and progressiveness that has motivated him during his college career.

FRANCIS J. RYAN B.S. 48 Eddy St. West Newton, Mass. Social Science Orchestra 2, 3, 4; Spanish Acad- emy 1, 2, 3; Sociology Academy 3, 4; Ricci Math. Academy 1; Band 1, 2, 3, 4. We are scarcely in a position to dispute Red ' s contention that his hobby is music in view of his achievements along those lines. For four years a member of the orchestra and band, Red carried his musical ten- dencies into his interest in Spanish. After a strenuous day at school Red must rush home, dress and be off to work. Well, he doesn ' t call it work, for at the Totem Pole he is able to hear the finest music in the land. Modesty, and particularly a capacity for blushing furiously, leads Red to make the statement that he merely plays for his own " amazement " . He is a constant " adversary " to many of the social theories expounded in soci- ology classes and his interest in this science is reflected in his copious notes.
