Daily announcements of "Pictures must be in and "Make a down payment on your annual" kept the student body "E1ksonian" conscious. All the staff worked, but to a few belonged the daily grind of making M the pages. Along with the editor-in-chief, Charlotte Darbro was a faithful f and constant worker. Every day saw her rounding up the officials, running if errands and making the task possible, But it was all fun and we are proud of the 1955 "Elksonian. " We ded- icate it to you, the advertisers and purchasers, who furnished the finances for it.
