JOHN CLAXTON CHERRY Age 17 Height 5 ' 8 " Weight 140 High School Triangular Debate ' 16; Class Prophet; County Commencement Marshal ' 14, ' 15; Baseball ' 15, ' 16; Athletic Association; High School Literary Society; Dramatics ' 15, ' 16. When Claxton slants his hat at a 90-degree angle and summons to his countenance that " Cheery " smile and marches down the streets of Tarboro, one can but mistake him for one of our millionaires. However, he is a very jolly, obliging personage, and when a good time is mention ed Claxton is " Johnny-on-the-spot. " " You can be what you resolve to be. " CATHARINE COBB Age 17 Height 5 ' 5H " Weight 104 Marshal ' 13, ' 14, ' 15; Secretary High School Literary Society ' 16; Secretary-Treasurer Ath- letic Association ' 16; Tennis Club; Dramatics ' 15, ' 16. Catharine ' s most prominent feature is her large blue eyes. Very useful features they are, too; for they are always in demand searching for mail (male). Her chief ambition is to " get through, " but to have a good time along with it. Being of a sociable nature, she shines especially at the class parties. However, Cath- arine is not a person of social attainments alone; she frequently distinguishes herself by making the highest grades in class. " A countenance in which did meet Sweet records, -promises as sweet. " 15

WILLIAM HENRY ANDREWS, Jr. Age 16 Height 5 ' 11 " Weight 170 State Triangular High School Debate ' 15, ' 16; President High School Literary Society ' 16; Chief Marshal ' 15; County Commence- ment Marshal ' 15; Track ' 14, ' 15, ' 16; Ath- letic Association; Dramatics ' 16. Bill is catalogued for a presidency; but we can ' t say whether it is to be social, political, literary, or all. Anyhow, he has the air of Mr. President (accent the Mr.) We have a feeling that his inclination just now is along social lines. If you don ' t believe it, ask the Juniors. His only rival in this respect is his fellow townsman. To find a " lady-killer, " we urge you to go to Speed. " Build thee more stately mansions, my soul, As the swift seasons roll. " JOSEPH POWELL BUNN Age 17 Height 5 ' 11% " Weight 150 Captain Baseball Team ' 16; Member ' 14, ' 15; Business Manager Tar-bo-rah; Vice-Presi- dent Senior Class; Critic High School Literary Society ' 16; Marshal ' 15; Class Representative Arbor Day ' 16; Athletic Association; Dramatics ' 16. Why couldn ' t he have been named John? Then we could have called him " Bunny. " As it is, he answers to the name of " Fez. " It ' s hard to class Joe. One day his ambition is to be first bass in the Barber Shop Quartette; the next, second base on the baseball team. Next he ' s on Bud Fisher ' s trail. We can certainly class him with our best — an all-round man who is square. That is one figure in Geometry he has changed. If you don ' t believe it, ask any Senior. " A merry heart doeth good like medicine. " 14

ERDINE COBB Age 18 Height 5 ' 2 " Weight 97 Composer Class Song; Member High School Literary Society; Dramatics ' 16. That quiet little way of Erdine ' s covers a mul- titude of surprises. Though we have known her all through high school, we have never really found her out till this year, and we can- not yet suppress a start of surprise when she shrieks out unexpectedly at something funny. We never knew, either, that she was a com- poser; for proof of that fact, observe our class song. " When Duty whispers low, ' Thou must, ' The youth replies, ' I can ' " SPENCER PIPPIN DANCY Age 17 Height 5 ' 7 " Weight 124M Marshal ' 13, ' 14; High School Literary So- ciety; Dramatics ' 16. Spencer is known as " Baby. " He is one of the quietest boys in the class, yet when the proper time comes he can be one of the liveliest. And though we look upon him as the baby of the class, when we begin to " parler Francais " he can stand up with the best. His cheerful disposition has won for him many friends among us, and no doubt he will add many more when he goes out into the " wide, wide world. " " In life ' s small things be resolute and great; Knowest thou when Fate thy measure takes? " 16
