Activities: Patio Staff 4g Green Arch 3, 4, Civ' ics Club :Iii Football 3, 4, Basketball 3, 4, Base' ball 4. 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. Activities: Vice President 1, Patio Staff, Editor 4, Green Arch 1, 4g Choir 1, 2g Football lg Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4, Baseball 1, 4. 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 Navy.

WTLLIAM EDWARD CRAVEN 17 Walkers Banks, Henry Clay, Delaware "Bill" Activities: Green Arch 3, 4, Bowling 3, 4, Choir 1, 2, Civics Club 3, Patio Staff 4. 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. - WILLIAM F. DEWSON 1916 Delaware Avenue, Wilmington, Delaware "Bill'l Activities: President 1, Vice President 3, 4, Her- man Joseph Society 1, 2, 3, 4, Patio Staff, Busif ness Manager 4, Green Arch 3, 4, Choir 1, 2, Civics Club, Vice President 3, Football 1, 2, 3, 4, Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4, Baseball 1, 2. 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.

In each of his four years, he was the pace setter in schof lastic achievements.

Nor is he deficient in athletic ability, His compact frame cavorted on the gridiron, the basketball court, and the diamond. His selffeonf fidence and fine competitive spirit will make him a man to be reckoned with in the years to come. Jim intends to enter the Army Vfl2 in July and so attend a scientific school for the year or so before he enters upon active duty, RICHARD J.

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!
