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. WILLIAIVI FAY 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 , 5" X gf 5+ f 6 . of . i -O ft 1- 1 Q9 1 'f' 'S. " , 'iii' .?.iE?'Z'f3I'fi'l'li1?iEf5N I0 O N.

"Red" is going to enter the business world. We wish her happiness. i Senior Club. ' 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.
