V 2 i' If To next year's Senior president, we leave the scholarship, the dignity, and the handsomeness of J. R. Henderson as a president and leader. We doubt the ability of anyone to possess these qualities as he has done. Gordon Coffey leaves, at a private figure, to his fellow members of the orchestra his ability to watch the director and the audience at the same time. Gordon may have lost a measure of music occasionally. but he has never lost the smile of a pretty girl in the audience Dorothy Thompson leay es to the Freshmen the right to elect her successor as cheer leader To the basketball team of next year we give the prix ilege of gazing admir ingly at the trophies our Seniors helped to win this year Dorothy Lemons we giye Henrietta Vaughn s supply of language which will enable the recipient to talk more and say less than any other human being To Lane Ennis we bequeath Margery Neagles store of information which will enable him to pass any test in any subject at any time Eugene Whitlow leay es to Odell Warren his ability to keep on good terms with the faculty and still do as he pleases To Jean Blakeman we leaxe the perfect mdolence of Ellis McMahan Some people sit and waste time Ellis just sits This mdolence propertly used will insure the recipent against nervous breakdowns resulting from overstudy Sanders tBozoJ Pickett whom we expect some day will be a senator or a repxesentative wills his politics for the next six generations to Hght over William Stearman leaves his extra pair of shoes to any boy who can keep them on while coming down one Flight of stairs Ruth Jones hands down her red corduroy Jacket to Ruth Bale provided the latter can Hnd said Jacket To Wade Rayburn Zorabell Altman leaves her typing technique provided Wade finishes lessons 6 10 and 19 for her Eugene Ronald transmits his English grades to Leo Warren under the condition that if both grades are added they will produce Leo an English credit We leaye Edwin Marcums waitress ability to Marie Shirrell so that next years students mav not go hungry at Coffey s Boots Vaughn imparts to Jean Marshall Hodges her credit at Coffeys Cso that the latter can buy her own candy next year?
