E. T. FRANKLIN The busiest man you ever saw is our president. He is milk-man, shop man- ager, basketball player, rooter, citizen, civic leaguer, preacher, endowment cam- paign speaker, and college presiden t all at once. His most serious hours are spent planning a great future for Union College. DEAN G. M. RYDER Dean Ryder is our most delightful character. He can tailor coats, bind books, write hymns, teach, preach and raise pumpkins with equal skill. His poetic chapel talks are the delight of our school year and we owe our knowledge of all the world ' s great men to his class room reminiscenses. ABIGAIL E. WEEKS Miss Weeks is more than a faculty member; she is what Emerson says a friend is; she is one with whom we can be sincere. She sits with scepter in hand in Social Committee meetings and we find it hard to measure up to her social ideals (at all times). She loves the mountain boys and girls and finds de- lightful Anglo-Saxon traits of character in them. PROF. S. P. FRANKLIN He is wonderful! This expression is often heard around the campus. His sin- cerity for his work and sympathy with the students has brought him his well deserved fame. He is busy all the time; even after school hours his little daugh- ter becomes the object of psychological experiments. PROF. G. M. KLEPFER How did we ever do without him, his songs and his pep? He always meets you with a smile and is ready to give three good, rousing cheers for the Ath- letes and for any noble act of the college. Thanks to Dr. Klepfer, we now have what we have long needed, a goodly number of peppy Union College songs. 12 lllllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUillllllllllltllllUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIK THE STESPEAN llllllllllllinilllllllllllllllllllllMlllllllllllllllinillill ' )l»lllllllllllllllllllllll!llllllllllllllll!lll!llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll|lll!llllll|ll|||l, FACULTY PROF. D. M. HUMFLEET Prof. Humfleet is our Study Hall man- ager. He thinks it ' s lots of fun to make folks work. He is a good instructor in odd jobs, as well as in ' rithmetic. His greatest hobby is teaching teachers. He is field agent for the College and on the side he can insure your life for you. MABELLE HEGER Who always has a smile and a chapel announcement? Miss Heger, of course, and that isn ' t all she has either. She possesses one of the most wonderful lyric soprano voices we ever heard, and a remarkable teaching ability. She is the indispensable head of our conservatory of music. , PROF. T. V. BANCROFT That hair! Those eyes! Oh, he is simply divine! Of course French is his favorite pastime, but that is not all he is interested in; he likes all sorts of sports, tennis, and basketball, but he is very, very devoted to music; he sits by the piano in chapel entranced, with his gaze fixed upon the pianist ' s hands. MAE CARTER She is a dear, and she holds you spell- bound when she plays the piano. She is an ideal C. G. S. Sponsor; she doesn ' t have to command; very seldom does she have to request; we just want to please her. MILDRED E. MURPHY Miss Murphy is the smallest member of the Faculty; but you are not to judge her knowledge by her size. Her voice never loses its depth and her words never lose their roundness of tone, even when she is teaching the girls ' physical train- ing class. Her Expression pupils know just how far to go with her by the flash of her brown eyes. , .:.. - THE STESPEAN iiiii i mi 13 FACULTY PROF. I. B. PEAVY Prof. Peavy is our handy man. He can do anything, but his hobby is telling stories in class. He is fat, but he isn ' t sensitive about his size, for after all it takes a big man to carry such a great big heart around with him. We all know him as a friend, for he hasn ' t forgotten his own college days. , GRACE RALSTON FRANKLIN She sits in the Social Committee meet- ings in regal state, but she hasn ' t for- gotten that young folks must be young folks and says a good word for us now and then. She spends part of her leisure moments in the library looking up work for her History and English classes. She is the most reserved person you ever saw, but " to know her is to love her. " PROF. G. C. HEWES Who is the most patient member of the faculty? Any student will answer, " Prof. Hewes. " " His steady brown eyes twinkle now and then and are the real keynotes to his character. He is slow of speech and slow of action, but he always manages somehow to accomplish what he sets out to do. He is so interested in his work that he spends all of his leisure moments in the chemical laboratory. BLANCHE WHITTINGTON Miss Whittington is our college " spon- sor, " and we have found her a loyal one. She is at the head of the Domestic Sci- ence Department, and a member of the Social Committee. She spends her Satur- day evenings making dainty, pretty things for her friends. She loves to cook, and to teach cooking, but iere is no fire in Union College to cook over. PROF. R. E. BURNETT He steals into your heart inch by inch with his quiet unassuming ways until you finally awake to the fact that he is in full possesion. He is a member of the " Jersey Quartet " and he crosses the campus twice a day trying to maintain an equilibrium with his two pails of milk. The worst fault we find with him is that he is faithful in the performance of his duty of checking up on chapel truants. inn .: mm iiiiiini ■ ■ " ■■■ : " " ■ " 14 THESTESPEAN iiliilllililllilllllllliiilliiiil!iiiliiiilliiiliiii!!«iniiliiiiil!iiiiiii;iui:i!i : i i p f rl r 1 1 1 1 Jil i ■ ! r f i r l m 1 1 1 1 11 n ill 1 11 e r ir i [[ i r 1 1 1 : 1 1 1 1 1 11 1 in i r i h r : . 1 1 ; : 1 1 ! . - , i - i i::!i: ■ ■ - .1 :.mi i i - : :. 1 1 liliiiinri: r 1 r 1 1 ir 1. FACULTY NANNIE TAYLOR If you visited the office during school hours, you would find her there faithfully working ' away. She would greet you with a smile, and speak a kind word to you, for courtesy and kindness are among her greatest virtues. Although she is very quiet, her sweet disposition soon wins for her the kind regard of new ac- quaintances. MR. GUS HOUSER Gus is our " Wonder Man! ' ' Anything from driving a nail to cleaning an auto vacuum tank, and inventing a hair dryer for the girls! His hobbies are playing a piano, whistling, visiting Speed Hall and telling jokes. He is in fact a delightful joke himself. Gus was asked several times one day about a leaking pipe, and replied, " Sure, I will go over and put a pan under it. " , AUNT MAE Who is who in Union College? Aunt Mae, of course. She is the mother of Union, and three times a day she is on the job, in soul, mind and strength. Not only does Aunt Mae see to it that our almost insatiable appetites are kept sat- isfied, but she is a sure enough remedy for the blues. She always has a smile for you, and prepares dainty dishes for the sick. W. B. TROSPER " Trap " is famous for his winning smile that he bestows upon students as well as on members of the Faculty. He coaches the girls ' basketball team, and has made out of them the invincible quintet of old " Kaintuck. " He teaches the boys ' phys- ical training classes, and added to all this he is taking a college course. MRS. RYDER Who feels her responsibility more strongly as matron of a girls ' dormitory than Mrs. Ryder. Who is more faithful in the performance of her duties? Who exercises greater watch care over the girls under her charge? Who is more ready to give advice and assistance to those who need it ? You say you don ' t know? Then where can you find a bet- ter preceptress than Mrs. Ryder? 1 ■ Book II The Classes 16 THESTESPEAN ' ii» mnmjin iiiimiiii inn milium minimi miiiini nmiiiiiiniiimi miiiimm iiiiimmiii:iiiiiiiii:iiiiiiiimim iiiiiiaiiini.. COLLEGE HISTORY In the last days of fair September, there assembled on the green about thirty members of the College Department. We elected our officers and started on our year ' s work. With our program before us we set out to enjoy ourselves and to be of service to all around us. Hikes, outings, receptions, and all kinds of good times were to come our way. Our first endeavor to strike the chords of jollity and mirth was made when we hiked out to Long Hill under the bright blue skies of early October. Romping over the rocks and skipping stones across the river was real sport. A campfire on the rocks was an ideal place to roast wieners and marshmallows. And when the leaves on the trees were red and yellow, and all the mountains were looking their gayest, we wended our way to Cumberland Gap. Early in the morning the Pinnacle challenged our metal. We clam- bered over rocks and around boulders, holding to their rough and rugged sides. At noon we built a stone stove and roasted our bacon and boiled our coffee. A mure hungry group of people never surrounded a campfire, and nobody ever did better justice to a meal than we. On Hallowe ' en we gathered the whole school into the gymnasium. Witches, Ghosts, and real people from the four corners of the earth, with round heads,, and long heads, and box heads, and white faces, and black faces, and false faces were there. A real Spooksburg there was. with witches, brooms, black cats, skull and cross bones and all. When all had tasted the witches concoction and eaten the enchanted cake we bade them a merry good-night and pleasant dreams as they passed along the receiving line. Honor and honesty is our slogan ; we have pledged it to each other ; we have pledged it to our teachers. We have fairly faced the question. Every member stands true. Along with the rest of the Colleges we stand with an honor system to which we are loyal to the last man. Springtime is here. Yes ! — and Dishman Springs is our goal. W. D. Archibald. President.

He has become a real part of it and every year brings him back with all his vim and initia- tive. Darrell is known as Barak, which means lightning, and he lives up to his name ; he fairly flashes through the corridors. He is an or- ganizer and a pusher. If any new- enterprise needs to be put through successfully, we go to Darrell, and we meet with success. He is sincere in all he does and a friend to every one. MARJORIE J. BROWN " MIDGE " Who but Midge, with any degree of success, could plan a bungalow, fill a hope chest, entertain her fiance, graduate and get married all in one year? She is a magnet for A ' s. She swims, plays tennis, and basketball and is a regular amphibian when it comes to housekeeping. My! Ed, you are lucky !

He is our Charlie Chaplin and he delights in enter- taining the girls with his comical antics. George always has an exception to the rule on any subject brought up in Eng- lish; " and e ' en tho vanquished he can argue still. " RUTH BOWMAN She wears a smile that won ' t come off, excels in music and exhibits talent as a debater. She is a very important mem- ber of the class for she pays all the bills. It would be hard to find a better giggler or a girl with more friends. ROBERT STARK Bob is a handsome all round good fel- low. Whether he give s a trombone solo or a vocal selection, he always inspires us. Bob should be a ventriloquist, for sometimes we think a whole circus is turned loose on the campus, but second thought tells us it is only Bob. ALICE WHITTINGTON Our " Louisianian. " Although Alice has been with us only this year, we feel that she has always been one of us. She is Captain of our class basketball team, has a keen sense of humor and giggles at any time. Watching trucks pass and keeping tab on the Barbourville Laundry is her favorite pastime. BILL ED DISHMAN Rah! Rah! Rah! for Bill Ed, captain of the class team and star on the Varsity. He is the quietest boy of our class and he keeps his knowledge as well as his sec- rets to himself. He is very generous with his car, and always has a lively bunch of girls with him. THE STESPEAN 27 ACADEMY SENIORS LONNIE WALLACE Hail to the " Peppy Senior. " He finds fun in the driest things, and is fun itself on the basketball floor. Student Gov- ernment has discovered he is like an owl; he goes calling after study hour, and sometimes fails to return until after breakfast time. The only way you can offend him is to tell him he is little. DAISY WAGERS RICKETTS Daisy is the matron of our class, hav- ing received her M-R-S. last vacation. She is our class historian. The satisfac- tory work she does, always finds her on committees, and she is a sure enough " Daisy " on our basketball team. VERNON BLAIR He has made a successful teacher and although he has only been with us since the holidays, he is obtaining his diploma with three years ' work. He delights in teasing girls, but seldom expresses his views unless asked to. RUBY BAIN A rare jewel indeed, and an enthusias- tic, sane little worker wherever you put her. She excels in Mathematics and His- tory and stars in English; no wonder she is often seen in a chummy chat with members of the faculty. BRYANT COX Bryant is our rosy cheeked, blushing preacher. He takes his duties as a Sen- ior very seriously, and always goes about in a dignified manner. Bryant often has dates, but girls occupy no permanent place in his mind. We are sure when Bryant receives his " Sheep Skin " and starts out to uplift the morals of our land, that he will prove as successful there as he did at Union. " 28 THESTESPEAN IllllllllimillllllUU! nil:, ' I inn ■ ■:.: ■ nun, :::: ' . : ACADEMY SENIORS ELMER PARKER He is an -exceptional member of our class because his presence is manifested by being seen and not heard. He is prompt and always ready when called upon. Altho he is quite timid we attrib- ute that fact to his youth, which he is al- ready showing tendencies to overcome. REBECCA SAWYER She has a noble character, a mind very much her own and is honored in all her ways; she is a real student and a school " Marm " she is destined to be. BEN HYNES Ben is our efficient member of the Lit- erary staff and was the first editor of the Orange and Black. Snaps of him always reveal his jolly love of fun. In Physics r.r " ' ever he usually falls peacefully away into slumber land. LOVE MORRIS Smiles are the language of " Love. " She is famous for her sweet voice and sunny disposition. She is as lovable as her name and Bob especially thinks so. She is an outstanding player on the Girls ' Varsity. , HENRY PAYNE Altho Henry played hookey two years ago, he could not resist coming back to the ' 22 class. He is good natured and al- ways has something to say, but when it comes to having an unchangeable mind he is Ancil ' s brother sure enough. He likes the girls and can usually be found telling them the weather reports. milium ' iiiiiiiii; Tin THE STESPEAN 29 -■ ■ I " 1 - mi :■ ■ .miii .1. . in Mini .. :, ACADEMY SENIORS GRACE MILLER Our Senior with a sweet face. She is loved by all her class mates because of her winning ways. But when it comes to " Math " she shines only as a genius; her favorite pastime is working in the Lab- oratory. HUGH PARKIN Behold! our steadiest member; because he thinks for himself and fears not to say what he thinks, he is convincing in debate. He is one of our dependables. MARY MILLER She is reserved in disposition, enjoys a good joke and never forgets to blush at the right time. Mary works hard in the " ' Lab. " and rejoices when the last ex- periment is through. NANNIE STICKLEY The Social Committee objects to the couples being together so the Annual Staff was obliged to place a dis : nterested person between Hugh and Nannie. She has real talent for Domestic Science. The application of this talent is to be? ANCIL PAYNE Ancil is the most popular young man on the campus every morning and just after " 23 " runs. These words, " Any mail for me, Ancil? " he says, haunt him in his sleep. When once he sets h : s head, it is as hard to change him as any rock foundation. MARY McDERMOTT She ' s a real sport. She swims, drives a car, and uses porch swings; she works faithfully on any Senior enterprise and is head of " the Violin Department.

Some of us were here just because our parents had sent us. Some did not stay all the year, but those who did stay, at the end of the year, knew something ' of what an education would mean and were en- thusiastic to come back next year. We felt that we had done something great when, by the help of our teacher, we appeared in chape] with a rousing good Literary program; at this time we adopted and sang our class song, " Rowing, not Drifting. " We were this year known as Sophomores. We had a large class of new- students; all seemed fully determined to do a year of good work. We next established for ourselves the custom of paying class dues and we were the first class in Union College to start a bank account. In the form of a con- test we carried on an English drive which had been handed to us from the Sophomores who preceded us. JUNIORS we are! Love. Dais) ' . Ancil. Bryant and Hugh still on the job ; the rest are lost by the wayside, though we have a large class of new- students. This year we took the responsibility of writing the College notes for the Mountain Advocate, and after several failures our notes took their place in the paper every week. We decided we could publish a paper so we put our heads to work and the ' ' Orange and Black " which became a neces- sary part of our school life will go down in history to the credit of the Acad- emy class -of ' 22 at Union College. SENIORS ! We are here twenty-one in number. We have this year a hue basketball team of boys and of girls, and we are fully determined to win the pennant offered by the school. Some of our number are developing their ability for debate; we hope to win a place in State Tournament this year. We are just now ready for the next stage in preparation for our life ' s work, College; we expect every one to contribute his best to some worth)- form of service. Class Motto: " Labor overcomes all difficulties. " Class Colors: Blue and Gold. Class Flower : Rose. Class Song: " Rowing, not Drifting. " DAISY WAGERS RICKETTS.

When told they would have to be known as Freshmen a look of utter dismay came into their e_yes, and they wondered what such words could mean. But in a short time there was not a member in the class who did not know the meaning of the word and who did not think it cleverly applied. We worked hard, but the same old things happened ; only about two thirds of the number were able to survive; these with the few new ones composed the Sophomore Class of 1921, which proved itself a star class. Everybody was congenial but the " weather man ; " it seemed to rain every time we planned a hike but forgetting such small botherations we had many happy times together as Sophomores and went home for vacation enter- taining happy thoughts of, how shall we feel as Juniors next year? JUNIORS! That ' s exactly what we are. Twenty-two in number but work with double strength. The most of us are the same old Freshmen of 1919. But just a word for all the new members. They quickly fell in line with us and are happily carrying their share of the load without even a " groan. Our class is well represented this year in all musical organiza- tions. Union College Juniors have the pleasure of writing the College Notes for the Mountain Advocate and we also feel that we are doing some- thing worthwhile by publishing the Orange and Black. The one thing that we try hard to do is to be agreeable with our beloved faculty advisor. We realize that we are still far from the top, but we are still striving for the time when we shall don our dignity as Seniors and say, " Yonder lies the port : we must not stop here.

They were, as is the custom, dubbed " Freshies " before they had been there a week. But this class was soon to show its spirit, and ever since, we have made ourselves known to the whole school for our ambitions, courage and vim. We have had many wonderful times at our socials and picnics. We put on the English Drive Contest in which the Seniors and Freshmen lost and they gave a lively social for the Juniors and Sophomores. We gave a play, " It Pays After All, " which was written and staged by members of our own class for the English Drive. This was the first class in Union to have an Honor System and we are proud of the fact that it has worked successfully for two years. Everything this class has undertaken has been a great success and we owe many thanks to our beloved Mrs. Franklin. We even have crackerjack basketball teams and also a debating team boh of which have won high honors for this ambitious class. We have worked hard these two short years but with many new additions we hope to return as Juniors next year and with the ambition and vitality we have alwavs shown, we shall make a huge success of " The Orange and Black.

Our class has been a lively and, we think, a talented class from the beginning. Since our organization as a class we have discussed and devised plans by which we could make the greatest success possible. We adopted, we think, the highest possible kind of Honor System. We adopted as our class colors, Blue and Gold. We are accomplished in a great mam- ways already. We have often proved to you how well we can read, sing, play and swim, and we have won many honors on the basketball floor. Under the tutorship of our splendid yell leader we have often inspired U. C. ' s athletic teams. Our ability to yell typifies the energy and ambition of our lives, and assures our friends that we are very much alive. We have in our class, poets, musicians, professors, politicians, judges, physicians, artists, warriors and a pugilist. Do not ask us as to " which " or " who " but twenty-five or thirty years from now you will be able to desig- nate which is which and who is who. This is a very rough and ready sketch of our history so far. It is only a glimpse of great things foreshadowed. We hesitate to elaborate more as we often hear the expression " greenies. " Yet we feel sure the class of ' 25 will continue to be the most energetic, efficient and accomplished class in the history of Union College. Margaret Wilson.

Love led the co-ed quintet of the U. C. through the past season lie- sides captaining the squad. Love played an excellent game at forward. Thelma V. Morehead. Thelma is the team-mate of Love ' s; not a better co-ed basket tosser has hit our floor than Thelma. She can shoot from any angle and any position. i Isabelle Riggs Riggs donned the Orange and Black for the first time for Union, and we know she defended these colors. Riggs held down the pivot position, was the fastest basket player on the court and she had a good eye for the straps. v- Idamae Smith Smithie held down the stationary guard position. Few opposing for- wards ever found their way through Smithie ' s guarding. Although she received some of the hardest falls witnessed on our floor, she called time out but once. Ellen Howard Pollen being a sister to Jakie, naturally inherited some of the family speed. She played forward and guard. She always displayed the bull dog tendencies when she got hold of the ball. Margaret Wilson Margaret just finished her second year with the Southeastern Kentucky Champs, viz : Union. She plays guard along with Smithie. They form a defense hard to penetrate. Mae Melton Mae has been with the squad for the past two years. Although she has taken part in but few games, she has proved to the followers of the cage game that she will be heard from in the future. 46 THESTESPEAN llllllllllllllllll I !; , I ' III II .1:11 I IIIIIIIIIIIT, . .iiiiiiiiiiiii BOYS ' VARSITY SQUAD ■ " ■ " ■ ' ■ : ii .1 mi mi. nun i.i .iiiuiii in THESTESPEAN 47 Robert Blair Bob has upheld the reputation of the Orange and Black for three years. His guarding has always been an outstanding feature of all games. Bob will be with us again next year to fill his old berth. W. B. Trosper Trap made his debut with the Unionites last season. He filled the pivot position last season and this year he held flown a forward ' s place. In addition to playing Trap also coached the squad. W. E. Dishman Bill Ed has been with us only one season, but he has shown his ability as a stationary guard. Bill Ed and Bob formed a defense hard to break through. Jakie Howard Jakie is another veteran. His playing is always an outstanding feature. He is like lightning in his floor work and has a good eye for the straps. He plays just as well on the defensive as on the offensive. William Tye " Bill " enjoyed his first season with Union this year. He is little, but a hard man to guard and has an eye for the basket that seldom sees wrong. He holds down a forward berth. Robert Lee " Runt " is the little man of the squad: although he has played but few games he has proved to us that size does not count. " Runt " is equally as good at forward as at guard. Josh Faulkner Josh is our lanky center, having been moved from a forward position. Josh works well on pivot position and also has a good eye for the basket. He will be back next year to give someone a race for the pivot berth. Allan Tuggle " Bear. " although he was given but few chances to prove his worth, did prove that he was a " bear " in handling the ball and in shooting. " Bear " served as a utility man and played a consistent game in an) ' position in which he was placed. 1111111111 1li;l: ' ' mm ' " ' " i " » u in mi ii iiiiiiii iiiiiiniiiiii iiiniin iiniiimiii ilium 48 THESTESPEAN i iiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiliiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii mm imimmn i iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimimiiiiii iiiimimiiimii n BASKETBALL SCHEDULE, 1921- ' 22 Varsty Girls ' Team (Southeastern Champions) Jan. 21 E.

ATHLETICS Athletics in Union College has always been of the highest type and this past season was no exception. The boys ' Varsity squad piled up a record that was hard to beat, with only three defeats and twelve wins. We consider this past season a great success. Not only on the court does the Orange and Black wave but on the diamond. This spring we have a very heavy baseball schedule and a fast team representing us. Nearly all the old men are back and with the new material on hand things look bright. Football has not occupied a place in Union athletics for some time, but next fall a team will represent Union in the gridiron game. Each year Union seeks new fields to conquer and in time to come she will have a permanent place in the field of sports, not only in Kentucky but in Tennes- see and Virginia. Our Girls ' Varsity of the cage game have just finished a championship seas on, having captured the flag of Southeastern Kentucky and also de- feated the fast U. of T. team. They tried to get a crack at the U. of K. and Wesleyan basket tossers but were turned down. We are hoping to get games with some of the standard colleges and universities next year, and show them how the game should be played. With practically all the old squad back next year and a good complete schedule the championship will not change hands. Every student who comes to Union must learn to swim. If you are about to drown it is far more important that you know how to swim than that you are able to conjugate a Latin verb. Every Union College student must be able to take care of himself in the water. Since the gymnasium was built, swimming has taken a great part in our lives. Our pool is one of the very best in the state. Much credit is due our swimming instructor. Miss Cora Sevier, who teaches a thoroughly scientific method. illlllllllllllllllllllllllll IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII , , ■ llllllllllinilllll IIIIIUIUIIJUIlllHIIIIIIII i 52 THESTESPEAN Milium Iililimiin I nil il llllllil 11111,1:1:111111 iiiiiiiii mi ;.;::. .::■ :,i ilimiiiillilllllllinillllllllllllllllllllimill iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiii minium; OUR GAME Now basketball is the game for me!

DRAMATIC SOCIETY " Say ! the Expression Department has a real live organization this year hasn ' t it? I used to think it was where a girl went and learned to rave mad- ly or like Sarah Bernhardt with no apparent effect, except to cause her Roomies to have nervous prostration, but the Department this year has been doing things. " " I don ' t seem to remember anything in particular they have done this year. " " You don ' t? — why have you forgotten, ' Mrs Oaklies ' Telephone and Belles of Canterbury ' and the Dramatic Society, they organized right after Christmas? " " Oh! to be sure, how stupid, of course I remember, I ' ll never forget that perfectly grand reception they gave in March. Everything all decorated in pink ami white, it was lovely! " " And, my dear! didn ' t we have some wonderful times on those Dra- matic Society hikes? " " I should say, but the thing I enjoyed most this year was a play " June " they put 011 in April. I never was so thrilled over anything in my life. Weren ' t Cecil Byrley and Charles Hedrick a scream? " " Not half so funny as Flossie Turner, but my dear, Josh and Ethel and Jakie were simply wonderful in their parts, didn ' t you think. ' Bob Lee was a perfect villain and Evelyn Black a perfect little villainess. " " Yeah, all parts were great — Yerda and Irene and Ruby were fine too. " " I enjoyed the Dramatic Society programs, too, didn ' t you? That scene from ' As You Like It ' was my favorite. Yes, you are right, the Expression Department has been doing some lively work this year. " THESTESPEAN 57 imilllllimmillllllllllimilllllllllllllll nil mm mil i : . ■ : : ■ - 1 : : : " : . !
