aa We for one-sounds funny doesn't it, but our intentions are s.,
.. goodfdo solemnly swear that we never saw "Burt" wearing a ..
lja hang-dog look or even a slightly serious expression: He owns a IQQ
. perpetual grin-not a bad asset, however. In his own circle,
he's quite the shining light-the trouble is, he's never "showed Ol
.. up" much around school. But to utter truth we really prefer
j the absence rather than the presence of ostentation, premeditated
.t or otherwise. No, Smarty, we haven't got a dictionary either. ,.'

FLORINE HAZEL CHRISTESEN
New Haven Conn. o April 19 1910
In action faitliful in honor clear.
Flo is one of our honor students-but look out! Dont
call her Flo within her hearing-how she hates that name
well so do we-and furthermore she is one of our best liked
students. She has a few fast friends who couldn t getlalong
without her because shes such a comrade and- affectionate
friend but shes liked by everyone else too. Florme has been
a star pupil all through High and so it follows naturally that
she'll be as good a one at Normal. Best wishes! Florme.
New Britain, Conn. "Bill" November 25, 1908
" Hitch your wagon to a star."
"Bill" graduated into the class of high gentlemen of society
when the teacher began calling him "Mr," It was a new feature
for him and we expect that he got a real thrill out of it. But if
a word to the wise is sufficient, we would recommend a few more
correspondence courses on etiquette before he may .call his
social education complete. Of course we all appreciate the
social ambitions of "Bill," but we feel sure that if he follows

our advice he will climb the social ladder much more quickly.
We feel that Fay will be a man like Burns, not a genius as Burns ,
was, but, like the great poet, "one who saw the heights fsocialb 'T -x
and failed to reach them." f fi?

Impos animi-Plautus 1
"Red" doesn't shine in scholarship, but she's a peach of a -
seamstress and an efficient housekeeper-while some of her ,,
classmates will have to own up they're not so brilliant along Q ,N
those lines. "Red" is going to enter the business world. We
wish her happiness. i

ANDREW NATAL FERRARIS
New Britain, Conn. "Andy" November 30, 1908
"Courtesy makes the gentlemen."
Poor "Andy." He Certainly was overworked in his Senior
year. His stay in Section 18 was one long era of shutting doors,
closing windows, reading thermometers, and adjusting window
shades. He only came to school half a day and he certainly
needed his afternoon's rest! Well, we all appreciate your
untiring efforts on our behalf and we are sure that, what with
your thoughtfulness and submissiveness, you will make a first
class helpmate for some lady.

Another honor student! Theres a pretty long list of them
this time isn t there? That s the good old Midyears of 28 for
you! And Lib is not the least member of our group. But
it seems that recently-only just recently you understand-
Lib has had other troubles besides those of her schoolwork-
there s a young man in the story. We know his name but we
wouldn t even whisper it-we re too good a friend of Libbie s to
do that. Don t you appreciate our hdelity Lib ? Of course
you do! So long!

"She greets you kindly, one and all."
Q A pleasant companion is "Midge" Anyone in the Class will
,J LP agree to that. She is not snobbish or grumpy, but alwa s
'N pleasant and agreeable. Though certainly not conspicious in
,.' size, she found a better way to become noticed-that of being
everybody's friend. "Midge" didn't graduate with honors for
. she wasn't a brilliant scholar, but many a brighter student has
' envied her personality. By means of that she will win her
l 1 way anywhere. Our best wishes go with you, "Midge"l
