NICOLE B. VAILLANCOURT 3585 Addington Montreal, Canada Nicky, the senior distinguished in being the youngest in the class of ' 54, is a native of Canada who trans- ferred to Rollins from the College Margerite Bour- geoys in her junior year. Far from the cold clime where she skated and skied, her athletic interests turned towards swimming and tennis. As she is a French-speaking Canadian, Nicky participated and added much to the French Club activities, although her English conversation pleased all with whom she spoke. A philosophy major at Rollins, Nicky will turn to the study of law at Montreal ' s McGill University after graduation. DONALD B. WEBER 20 Redman Terrace West Caldwell, New Jersey Don will complete four years of hard work this June, winning a degree with a double major in business administration and economics. His college life has been characterized by his versatility, for he is a scholar, athlete, and campus leader. He played intra- mural football, softball, and tennis for Sigma Nu, while winning the coveted " R " in varsity basketball and in his specialty, varsity crew, making him a mem- ber of the R Club. The Sigma Nu ' s elected Don to the position of Secretary, and the Senior Class recog- nized his ability when it chose him as Vice President. His further activity in the Student Council, the 0.0.0.0. ' s and the German Club gave him a wealth of information to draw on when he traveled to vari- ous Florida high schools as a spokesman for the ad- missions department. In the future Don is planning to enter the Naval Officers Training School, or if pos- sible, go directly to graduate school. JEROME C. WOOD 1029 Topinabee Road Niles, Michigan Jidge comes from the ski country up in Michigan, which may account for his dexterity on the water skis of the south. He graduates in June as a major in general human relations after an active four years at Rollins As a member of the Delta Chi fraternity, he masterminded the Delt ' s intramural program, par- ticularly in football, basketball, and softball as well as swimming. His interest in athletics made him a natural choice for the Intramural Board and he repre- sented the Student Council on the Student Faculty Disciplinary Committee. Jidge also took a fling at the stage in the play, " The Corn Is Green, " and was a member of the Glee Club and Senior Skip Day Com- mittee. In the summers Jidge has been training in the Marine Officers School, receiving his commission this summer so that the service has first call on his immediate future.

DONALD R. VASSAR 1625 North Curson Avenue Hollywood, California Philosophy being his major, Don had any number of other interests including music, the theatre, and col- lege film groups. Music led him to the Chapel Choir, the Bach Choir, and the Student Music Guild while the allure of theatre arts prompted him to spend many hours at the Annie Russell and Fred Stone the- atres where he served at one time or another as actor, switchboard technician, and sound effects man. This last interest brought him to WPRK where he became a qualified engineer. For his theatre arts work, Don was made a member of the Rollins Players and the Theta Alpha Phi group, while winning recognition for his scholarship in the honor groups, Pi Gamma Mu and the Rollins Key Society, of which he was Secretary. DONALD A. WILSON 961 South Highland Drive Dearborn, Michigan Don came to Rollins from Dearborn, Michigan, by way of the University of Miami where he was a mem- ber of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Don is often called " Cannonball " on campus because of his interest in speedboats, a hobby which brought him national recognition in the inboard competition Don careened through intramural football as a member of the X Club aggregation, as well as playing intramural bas- ketball and Softball His degree in business admin- istration reflects his participation in campus affairs for he was Comptroller for the Student Council, Fiesta Finance Chairman, and Treasurer of the X Club. Don also represented the Club on the Interfraternity Council while working with the 0.0.0.0. ' s and be- longing to the honor group, Lambda Kappa Pi. Grad- uate school is Don ' s future plan. WILLIAM H. WRIGHT 660 Killarney Circle Winter Park, Florida Bill transferred to Rollins from Orlando Junior Col- lege, possibly on the assumption he could save wear- and-tear on his blue ' 38 Ford, in commuting between school and his home in Winter Park. Pledging Delta Chi, Bill lent his lanky frame to the Delt ' s cause in intramural football, volleyball, basketball, and soft- ball w hile becoming something of a specialist in crew. Not only did he row for the fraternity, but he also pulled a strong oar for the junior varsity crew. Bill was a member of good standing in the Glee Club but on the subject of future plans, he hits a sour note, expecting to be drafted before he can put his degree in business administration to work. 283
