Duke, since entering Archmere last year, has
proven himself astute and gentlemanly. His inf
nate politeness and courtesy have made him a
pleasant companion both of the faculty and the
student body. In his quiet way Duke has played
an important part in the administration of class
activities. Though hurt before the actual playf
ing season, he received his football monogram
as a token of appreciation for his fine spirit and
sportsmanship. He also uncovered his talents in
basketball and baseball, On the diamond his
pitching prowess was a well recognized fact. If
he matches his enviable record at Archmere, in
the coming years he will be a sure Hre success.

Jim is a lad who might very well find his
cue for life in Shakespeare's Hamlet or Lear:
he has built himself quite a reputation for
clowning and caprice, yet underneath this surf
face there is quite a wealth of potentialities. For
Jim is an uncommonly fine student of English
-as much of this book is testimonial-and,
more rare, a keen observer of life. He held a
vital position on the basketball court, where he
amassed a large number of points, and then
turned in a very successful season on the base'
ball diamond at first base. If he really makes
use of his talents, he promises to have an out'
standing career at the Wharton School of
Finance during the year before going into the

Bill in four years has left an indelible imf
pression as a gentleman and a scholar. His aptif
tude in the classroom is best expressed by the
quality of his literary compositions. However,
his mathematical talents should not be over'
looked. A consistent honor student, Bill is ex'
ceptional in his neatness and efficiency. Because
of his quiet, sincere attitude towards both
friends and teachers, he has become well liked
and respected by all. Though not a proficient
athlete, he was a prominent figure in the bowl'
ing alley. His ready wit and fine sense of humor
have made him a pleasant companion. The
knack of getting things done will insure his suc-
cess in later life. -

Bill has been the most spirited member of
our class since the freshman year. His untiring
ambition and steady concentration have made
him a leader in all activities. In his classwork
Bill followed the example of his brother, who
was one of the hlst students to enter Archmere.
Of Bill it may by said that to meet 'him is to
like him. His fighting spirit extends also to the
field of sports. The football and basketball
teams have been greatly enlivened by his fine
play. We are especially appreciative and gratef
ful to Bill for his unselfish participation in
school affairs. Take a tip from us and place a
bet on Bill's eventual success.

Dick is a likeable fellow despite his chronic-
ally pessimistic attitude. His ease in making
friends may be attributed to his sparkling per'
sonality. In his easy going manner he has en'
deared himself to everyone. Dick attacked his
studies this year with an unforeseen zest.
Knuckling down to work since September, he
has set a good example for his classmates. How'
ever, he is not only a connoisseur of studies but
also an accomplished football player. He played
center for the past two years for the Green and
White. Dick's savoir faire has made him indisf
pensable in class affairs. We are proud to say
that he has enlisted in the Navy. Lots of luck!
