He never forgets his ancestral traits and sometime in the dim, dim past someone may have foxed Skilly but not for any great amount. A man of varied activities is Skilly-H chem drip, pistol sharpshooter, class footballer, and he sure can tickle the ivories. Three years at Norwich have seen him pounding various pianos com- posing new "Chas-ton" numbers and lest we forget, he charmed one church congregation with an organ recital of "Kitten on the Keysf, Socially, Skilly is the Norwich lion. House party time finds him with a list of "blinds" for the brothers. A fair one of Lawrence heads the list and his one ambition is to sell her good points to the credulous gang. gas Class Football fl, Sjg XVrestling fri, 3. zljg VVrestling "Nw Q4-jg Winter Carnival Committee Qlijg Baseball Squad Cor- poral Qfijg "N" Club Everyone knows Smitty Ole Boy hails from Vermont. One glance at his rugged countenance proves it. He is an engineer by choice and many 'fgeneralsn look with envy at his class rank. Smitty helped old '28 hand '27 a severe trouncing in football during our Rook year as well as defending our honor the following year. He gained distinction by winning his wrestling letter during his Rook year and has continued as a grappler of no mean ability.

HAROLD VVILLIAM RABIDOU ROGER SHERMAN Northfield, Vt. "liable" Outing: Club Cijg WAR WYIIOOP Board C215 Sergeant Wlhen Rabie came to Norwich, along with the rest of the Hooks of l28, even the Comm took a single glance, smiled approvingly and exclaimed, "Here,s a soldierf' Certainly he has "come through." 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. It doesn't take one very long to see that he is one of the most popular fellows in school. To know him is to like him. Ty has been men who has making three year. At the

VVest Stoughton, Mass. "Jack" "Southie" Buck Sergeant Another product of Newport, Vt., is Jack, the bucking sergeant of C Troop. Like the rest of the Newport men, he is very proficient in his studies, and were it not for the fact that he is tak- ing one of the toughest courses on the Hill, the civil engineering course, we might expect to see him at the head of his class. Not only as an academic shark does he excel, but also as a mili- tary man extraordinary, as the three stripes on his sleeves testify. Many a Rook, upon seeing him walk down the parade, has had a hope born deep down within him that he will look as military as Jack does with his well- pressed uniform and protruding chest. .lack is one of the cool, quiet type, keeping much to himself at all times. This quietness is not without its ad- vantages, however, and so, in this case at least, the only conclusion that we can draw is that "still waters sometimes run deep." C865 Norwich Chemical Society, Buck 14, 3,2j. Two years ago a long, lanky youth from Stoughton plodded his weary way up "Mount Orserf' He possessed all the greenness and virtues of the neo- phyteg but determination was written upon his face. Two years and a half have failed to dishearten this now stolid youth. Two years of horsing, of drills, of studies, town and the chemical labora- tory. It is in the chemical laboratory that our hero has stood the test of time -and missles. If curious, ask a "drip" about the "battle royals" waged in said laboratory. The righteous are always rewarded. Consequently, Harold being one of the untainted, is the proud possessor of the VVilson gold medal. This medal is awarded to the Freshman who is ad- judged to have made the best all- around development during the first semester.
