LYDIA D. CHRISTIANSEN This young lady is so quiet that very few people know of her existence. She was here last summer, and her stay here this year has been quiet and uneventful. When a friend of hers was asked concerning her, she remarked: "She is one of the finest girls I know.”
HELGA VON GORDON Dramatic Club; German Club, Vice-President Miss Von Gordon is a graduate of Fairbury schools, and has taught there six years. She is sweet-tempered and sensible. She says she is taking Romeo and Juliet “as a last resort.” We do not fully appreciate the meaning of the phrase, but she would doubtless explain, if questioned.
PAULINE KUBICEK Y. W. C. A.; Philomathean This girl with auburn tresses comes from the Crete High School. She has taught two years, and will continue after graduating here. She is a dormitory girl who spends a good deal of time telling folks how to pronounce her name, so has decided to change it as soon as possible to avoid further inconvenience.
MABEL L. KILMER Y. W. C. A.; Athletic Association; Philomathean Mabel has attended the Normal for two years, and is consequently quite broad. Her motto is “Laugh and grow fat." She gets hilarious once in a while in the library, but is usually quite busy. Her home is at Western. Ncbr., and she has attended McPherson College, Kansas, for one year.

Behold what a name! Jewell has that worried look which indicates either that he can not find “her” or that he has to re-write his lesson plan. Do not bother him when he is in that mood. It never lasts long, hut it is just as well to give him wagon room. He possesses determination and will do a thing after he has resolved to do so. He never gives up.
E. O. BLACKSTONF.
Everett; Y. M. C. A.; Editor-in-Chief Normalitc; Promoters’ Club Mr. Blackstone came hack to us this year after a short absence while acting as Principal at Harrison, Callaway, and Glcnvillc. He has had training in Fremont, Wayne, and our own Normal, and is now considered one of our strong students. He has during the present year been an assistant in the Physical Laboratory. His home is at Pilger.
CHESTER L. KAUP Philomathean; Mandolin Club; Y. M. C. A.; Promoters’ Club This boy is a Western product, being a graduate of that High School. He has been a teacher for two years, but abandoned that profession to fall into the ranks of the ’09s and accept the more lucrative position of “funny man” on the Peruvian staff. He wears the smile that won’t come off and his prime failing is his marked affinity for the other end of Normal Avenue, especially after library hours.
FRANK 1). KEIM Athletic Association; Everett; Band; Glee Club Mr. Keim is a pretty boy. He received his education at Davenport, Nebr., and taught there three years. He is a Very modest boy, so don’t look too intently at his picture, as it may cause him to blush. He is musically inclined, and has spent part of his time instructing the youth of the Model School in regard to scales, beats, bars, etc.

MABEL A. BOWEN Philomathean; Kindergarten Senior A faithful Senior during her time here, but now she has left us to spend a few months at least in the Norfolk schools.
At an cast Dorm. window she sat.
Wondering where Bennie was at.
Soon a smile on her face Seemed to cheer the whole place,
Twas Bennie that Mabel smiled at.
OLIVE EGGLESTON Miss Eggleston’s home is at Elgin. She is a very quiet girl, never known to speak unless spoken to. She studies all the time, and something serious weighs on her mind, because she never smiles. She is not the Eggleston who wrote the History, hut she is perfectly capable of doing such a thing if called upon to do so.
JESSE E. HENDRICKS V. M. C. A.; Treasurer of Senior Class: Ciceronian; Philomathean; Assistant in Biological
This bright and promising lad from Pawnee City and a graduate of the Brock High School has cast his lot with us for three years. 1 le has taught one year and claims to have been Associate Professor of Campustry here in the Normal. Judging from appearances he must hold a life certificate in that line of work. He is a dreamer and spends much time thinking of “France," in which all his hopes are centered.
MILDRED PORTER Philomathean; Athletic Association Miss Porter, a graduate of her home high school at Fairmont, is a demure little creature who seems always contented and happy. Her work here with the smaller children of the practice school has been very successful. Sickness has kept her at home a large share of her Senior year, but she will make good, and he a “naughty-ninc" after all.
