John Clinton Varner, Jr. Stage Committee of Senior Play. “Keep your tongue a prisoner and your body will go free.” Kind readers, let me introduce to you an ideal pal. a per- fect gentleman, and a dreamer. “Jack " came to us in the fall of ’24 and since then has shown real interest in all school activities — thus making himself universally liked by the L. H. S. student body. His constant good nature and genial fellowship are qualities admired in any boy, but " Jack " fits all requirements in a way of his own. We hate to lose you. fellow student ; but we have this con- solation that some day your dreams will come true. Good-by, “Jack and wherever you go, no matter where, when or how carry with you the ideals of L. H. S. M ARGARET ELLEN II IGGINS Chorus, ' 24-28. “The reason so few people get what they want is because they don ' t want hard enough.” Margaret in her quiet and unassuming way has climbed steadily with us for the past four years. Her sincerity and dependability go to make her an ideal student as well as a loyal member of our class. Margaret you are sure to win with your efficiency and de- termination and with the spirit of ' 28 behind you. Martha Martin Moore Chorus, ' 24- ' 28; " The Toreadors, " ' 26; The Echo Staff, ’25-’28: Editor-in-chief of The Echo. ’27- ' 28; “The Charm School, " ' 27 ; Manager of Basketball, ' 28 ; Hall of Fame, ' 28 ; Senior Play. “The only way to have a friend is to be one.” Bubbling over with willingness and energy for both work and play, as well as smiles and friendly ways — (in, spite of her occasional outbursts of temper) — Martha is summed up in “The Hall of Fame” as the “Most Friendly” girl at L. H. S. As Editor-in-chief of The Echo and as leading lady in the senior play she has proved her literary and dramatic abil- ity, but just as " sis she will always win the hearts of many. Katie Whitmore Chorus, ' 24-‘28 ; Senior Play. “Valuable things come only in small packages.” Another pupil who is about to close an, interesting chapter of her life, entitled “Days at L. H. S.,” is Katie. As a mem- ber of the Class of 1928 she has proved herself a sincere class- mate — one of those earnest students who have helped so much toward winning for our class a good name among the faculty. Here ' s to your success, fellow student, may hard luck follow you but never catch up with you !

H. S. Faithful to his task and sincere in his purpose is Wayne Lee, who throughout his high school career has proved that to achieve much one must have high ambitions and the determination to succeed. Malcolm Duncan Campbell, Jr. Baseball, ’25-28; Manager of Baseball, ’25; Football, ' 27- 28; Basketball, ’27-’28 ; Monogram Club, ’25-’28 ; Treasure of Monogram Club. ’27-’28: Hall of Fame, ’26-’28 ; Associate Editor, The Crystal, ’27-’28; Vice-President of Senior Class, ’28; Senior Play; Hi-Y Club ’26-’28 ; Valedictorian Senior Class, ’28. “By the work one knows the workman.” “As a scholar, as an athlete, and as a leader he is all right but just as ‘Mack’ he is best of all,” is what anybody that really knows him will say. Determination and effort mixed with plenty of ability holds for him a place on the honor roll and enables him to do numerous other things. Athletics are not neglected in “Little Mack ' s” school life — quite the oppo- site — he’s always in the thick of the fight when the reputation of his Alma Mater is at stake and he never fails to come out with flying colors. To know you is to love you, “Mack” — we’ll miss you, but good luck.
