Page Thirty-four ’31 YEAR BOOK BIOGRAPHIES Glass IG IRENE HARBISON—Calgary. —An “oil-on-troubled-waters.” One of the few who make 1C endurable for the Instructors. Usually quiet but she did go up in the air when teaching about aeroplane rides. DORIS KIDNEY—Calgary. — " Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.” So Doris enthusiastically does Psy¬ chology and Art and plays numerous games of basketball, Follies and Normal Girls’ (and Boys’). Happy in nature until someone begins punning on her name. It wouldn’t sur prise us if she changed it. LOIS KING—Calgary. —Lois plays a violin and fiddles around with a Ford car. A few freckles and a wind-blown bob and a sense of humor; made a high mark in History of Educa¬ tion. ROSE LAMMLE—Swalwell. —Rose rushes right past breathing pauses. Owing to her fame as a fortune-teller, many of the 1A class are thinking of dropping the teaching profession be¬ cause of a tip from Rose. Most roses have thorns but ours has a dimple. MARY MAKAR —Calgary.—Holds us more spellbound with a violin than Miss Fisher can with a spelling test. Is as well known for her infectious giggle as she is famous for her music. Mary is a good sport and has taken part in many of the school activities. MARY MAYELL—Calgary. —Class president by acclamation, which indicates that we realize and appreciate her many de¬ sirable attributes. She claims that one can appreciate Art without actually being able to do it. She is fortunate in possessing that saving grace, a sense of humor. KATIE MIDDLETON—Calgary. —Katie is one of the few in 1C who refrains from violent argument. In the racket be¬ fore the buzzer rings you find her in the corner quietly communing on subjects intellectual. HELEN MUSEUS—Munson. —So quiet you are never sure of her presence, until Mr. Loucks calls the roll. Then she meekly answers “Present.” Her wistful eyes gaze at you appealingly until in desperation you obligingly stall off a Psychology exam with questions. FLORENCE McCAMMON—Calgary. —Stop! Look and Lis¬ ten! “Oh, my dear, how interesting, thrills and heart- throbs!” Yes, that’s Florence. She has more cases than a box factory, and a wealth of Golden Glint curls. VIOLET McKAY—Delia. —If Pepsodent ever saw her smile, they would immediately take out a patent on it. Although quiet, her ability in making friendships rivals her smile. MURIEL MacMILLAN—Gadsby.— I lie fearless one—charges into 1A without so much as “by your leave,” yet don’t let this give you the wrong impression—1A likes it. DORA McPHERSON—Vulcan. — " Cello” Dora with her merry blue eyes has many virtues, but she doesn’t broadcast them. Dora’s never heard to boast, Her voice we seldom hear. But quiet folk oft know the most, Her qualities are dear. KATHLEEN McRAE—Calgary. —Kay is a constant source of anxiety to our “English” Instructor with her quiet voice. We think Kay herself is not so quiet for we know she can certainly play the piano, and what a noise when she strums the uke! FRANCES PALFREY—Purple Springs. —Wanted—eight hours sleep per night, a comb, and an efficient homework assist¬ ant, by a girl worn out with the trials and tribulations of Normal. EDITH PICKARD—Calgary. —It is a rumor that Edith’s main ambition is to go to China in the near future. Edith is quiet—in appearance, but we suspect it is her appearance only. Telling stories to a pop-eyed Grade II is her strong suit.

31 YEAR BOOK Page Thirty-three BIOGRAPHIES Glass IG LOIS ARBOGAST—Youngstown.—The 1C doorkeeper with the pacing gait. Chews gum—when Charlie has any. Between chews she plays professional basketball—and grins. Main ambition is to master the art of club swinging. Maybe she thinks it will be useful in later life. HARRIET ASSELSTINE—Calgary.—When we think of Har¬ riet we think of wasps. Don’t misunderstand, it’s just be¬ cause her brilliant lecture on wasps made such an impression. A hint from Harriet—“Wear a smock over your gym bloom¬ ers and avoid detection.” MARY BALFOUR—Calgary.—Mary fairly radiates good humor and charm of personality. That is no reason why Dr. Coffin should use her for psychological demonstrations. General consensus of opinion—“She’s sweet.” DORIS BEGIN—Drumheller.—A model girl but not a working model—adequately referred to as “a little scatterbrain” who can do things when she applies herself. “Oh sleep it is a gentle thing, beloved in Miss Dyde’s periods.” ALICE BLISS—Calgary.—Her outstanding characteristics are her quiet reserve, her sweet smile, and her shiny black hair. A trim, dignified Miss who will be remembered for her ability to each marching with her hands in her pockets at every P.T. class. MAYSIE BUDGE—Calgary.—You can’t budge Maysie. Her spare time is spent in tying up Eaton ' s parcels and making superlative leaf collections. MARY BURKE—Macleod.—The living questionnaire, closely related to a Psychology test—she’s just full of unanswered questions. She’ll most likely write a catechism during inter¬ vals in teaching. GLADYS CHARLES—High River.—The girl with the magnetic eyes—and the height. MacKay and Charles make splendid ads for “before and after taking.” IIB’s only rival as a darkie. ANNETTE CHRISTOFFERSON—Brant.— Just when 1C thinks it is growing up we hear Annette’s baby voice and realize we are still the infants. Her pet worry is the num¬ ber of calories per pound per day allowed to a young lady whose height is decidedly above normal. MARY CLIFFORD—Calgary. —From the time we first heard her speak with her attractive English accent, we knew that Mary would be a real friend, nor have we been disappointed. Highly imaginative, yet with a good deal of common sense, she is at once original and charming. She is cheerful and obliging. Everyone knows Mary as leading lady in “A Doll’s House,” President of the Natural History Club, Chairman of the Literary Committee and performer of innumerable odd jobs. She has been one of the most prominent of the “400.” GERTRUDE COLTON—Calgary. —Giggling Gertie of excessive energy. Was the object of Instructors’ queries until the silence that was her reply discouraged them. Never mind, Gertie, there are 399 others like you. GERTRUDE DETERMAN—Goddard. —She of the high heels and the diamond. Wonder why she’s attending Normal any¬ way? If you are troubled with insomnia, ask Gertrude to read to you. MARY DILLON—Dunmore. —A Jekyll-Hyde person, the mouse of 1C. In class and when Practice Teaching is as confident and self-possessed as Dr. Coffin. Perhaps, it’s the psychology of the thing. ANNIE DOENZ —Warner.—“Class—with a jump—atten-tion!” None other than Annie, the Serg’t of IC. Instructors please note—she belies her name. GERTRUDE ELLERT—Milk River. —The charming pianist of the Students’ Union. Believes that she has a haughty air but it is interpreted by her friends as coyness—oh well! LENORE FROEHLICH—Semans. —Someone must have mis¬ placed vitamen C while Lenore was growing up. On A, B and D, she developed into a timid, quiet, vest pocket edi¬ tion of a Normalite. MARJORIE HANEY—Calgary.— Marjorie’s wind-blown bob draws deep admiration from many of her friends. She’s the kind of girl you want to call the jolly good sort you should all know.

31 YEAR BOOK Page Thirty-five BIOGRAPHIES Glass IG ELIZABETH WEBB—Calgary. —What! Betty playing Yo-Yo! “Truth is stranger than fiction.” Betty winds her sinuous way around the main corridor and patrols the three floors periodically. She has a back seat—and does she make use of it? MABEL POWELL—Wayne. —A girl that will put most boys in the deep dark background when it comes to shooting—a gun I mean. Mabel has won pins and trophies for her accurate aim so be careful to keep on the good side of her. However, that isn’t hard, for Mabel is a jolly good fellow and a favorite with everyone. KATHLEEN ROSS—Pincher Creek. —A jolly all “round” ath¬ lete—that’s Gay. In direct contradiction to her name, her face is as solemn as a Methodist Minister’s. She has no reason for having that look for she is a star at basketball, baseball and borrowing—ask Mabel. SADIE SEMKOWICZ—Calgary. —When Sadie answers ques¬ tions there’s no more to be said—the room’s full of voice— even the deaf would smile and feel a thrill of comprehension. Her pupils gaze in astonishment—so much decision and volume in such a small parcel. MYRTLE SIMON—Drumheller. —Myrtle, out of consideration for her parasitic classmates runs a free loan bureau. In order to better describe her, may we quote Pope: “Good nature and good sense must ever join.” JANE STOCKTON—Drumheller.— J ane had to leave her be¬ loved horses when she came to Calgary but is looking for¬ ward to getting back to them. We all like Jane. There is a wholesomeness and sincerity that seems to draw friends to her. As a loyal supporter of the Dramatic Society, Jane has done more than her bit in helping out. She also had a leading part in “The Doll’s House.” ELINOR VAN AMBURGH—Calgary. —A “methodist” of the first degree. She shows great method and organization in all work even to the hunting out of intimate details in the life of the lowly mosquito. When a clever answer is given and in a “high doh” pitch, it is Elinor answering. HAZEL WATSON—Lethbridge. —“Variety is the spice of life” —her slogan. Just take a concentrated peep at the left lapel of her jacket and I’m sure you’ll agree. Everything from “Mickey Mouse” to A.T.A. MARY WHITE—Medicine Hat. —We just can’t imagine pupils misbehaving where Mary teaches. Efficiency and good management curb even the most daring of miscreants. She’ll be at home in any school, but particularly one composed of New Canadians. Also music teaching appeals to her. LOLITA WILSON—Lethbridge. —A dusky maid with a south¬ ern drawl. We’re told she lives for a special “diet” which is even more necessary than three meals a day. Lolita gets a kick out of everything, even Psychology, and her poetic ability shines forth in prosaic odes and humorous versified sketches on psychological episodes. VIOLET WILSON—Spring Coulee. —A languid genius swoon¬ ing amidst the boisterous clamor of the infant Bedlam. Why do quiet, clever, cool, and collected people always win schol¬ arships? Ask Violet. She is a real fountain of knowledge. SELMA WOOD—Calgary. —“Silently she walked among them.” We just know that Selma will succeed. Anyone as busi¬ nesslike must have her notes and assignments in perfect order. CLARA WOZNOW—Medicine Hat. —Clara’s eyebrows are most impressive. They tell more frequently of profound aston¬ ishment—mild (?) curiosity, and mischief in the making. “Type of her sex in wit and fun, Holds everything with ease except her tongue.” FLORINA WYATT—Medicine Hat. —“Enie,” the little girl with the long curls. She is famed for making a mountain out of a mole-hill.
