Although he did not wear any decorated sleeves his Sophomore year, it was discovered last June that the military machine could never run Without Rabie as an important part thereof. So the Comm ordered him to sew on the three stripes. Our buck- ing sergeant,s popularity does not rest entirely with the men of the Corps, his friends among' the fair sex are in- numerable. In him we find a combina- tion of generosity, sociability and seri- ousness, which makes this son of Nor- wich one of the most popular of '28. C345 VVinchester, Mass.

His athletic prowess does not stop there, however, as he has been one of the mainstays on the baseball team for the past two years, playing at short- stop. Roge was vice-president of his Freshman class and also of the Sopho- more, being eleeted president this year.

There are two outstanding facts about Gib: His ability as a track man and his generosity with cigarettes--H the other fellows'. Gib claims that he doesn't know a place in town Where he can buy cigarettes. Anyway, his technique in the art of bumming is admired by the Hooks, but three years' training is bound to polish anyone. VVhen track season rolls around Gib is found burning up the cinder path. No one is more conscientious regarding training and results have testified to the ability of Gib. During his first two years on the team he made more points than any other man on the squad. C333 Qjg Class Football Q-1-jg Corporal Sergeant Qiijg XNYAR.

"VVhat d'yuh say? Take a chance on the football poolf' And we are thus greeted by Fletch. Oh, yes, he has a way about him that would con- vince an Eskimo that he simply could not get along without an electric fan. He is a sergeant and in him the "Comm" has a mean expert in the art of military science and tactics. Not- withstanding this handicap of entering Norwich from Northfield High School we'll all give Fletch a vote of esteem and encouragement, that he may some day reach as high a pinnacle of success as has been set for him by his "Dad."
