Foreword

It is indeed fitting nowadays that some
adequate record be made of the widening
interest in student activities at Trinity
College. Such has been our assigned tasl^,
and to this end we have labored. We have
no doubt fallen far short of our marl^, and
it is with fear and trembling that We submit
this, the worf^ of our hands. It is our
hope, however, that at some time in future
years, you, gentle reader, may have an
occasion to open this book ogain, and that
by its help you may be able to slip away
from the toils and cares and worries of
your business for an hour or so and to drift
bacl^ to those pleasant and precious days
when you were a student; and as you turn
its pages, may you once more visualize
"old familiar sights of ours," may you
hear again the clarion summons of the
chapel bell, may you sit again behind your
worn study table in Epworth Hall, and
may you look, once more into smiling,
carefree faces that have grown dim with
the passing years.

If in later years, Adams as a minister can
make as good collections as he did as Treas-

sure that he will be made a bishop. A man
w ith a steady purpose which wins words of

Alex is one of the two He has for the
past four years distinguished himself in
various forms of scholastic acti\ity. We
learned to know him best by his superior
ser\ice in the dope shop, but in his Junior
and Senior days we are all inclined to think
that West Durham Pharmacy has become
much more attractive to him than the Col-
lege store.

bian Literary Society.

To many of his friends Jim might just as
well be labeled, "Alex, Duplicate". Jim is
a great fellow. He has given his class and
his College his best on the gridiron and the
diamond and in the dope shop. .And for
all we know , and possibly for all she knows,
he may ha\e taken a much larger share in
his twin Brother's West Durham acti\ities
than anyone suspects. He is one of those
\ery few,' who possess the maximum of
College spirit — a true son to his Alma Mater.
And most any student can point with pride
to the fact that Jimmie Ashe is one of his
friends.

No one knows what force impelled Earn-
hardt to forsake the plow and come to
College. Something, however, must have
influenced him strongly for he has certainly
mack a name for himself. His record has
been particularly bright on the hundred
yard dash, on the baseball field, and on
Education and Psychology classes. There
is no one who knows quite so much history
as he and Tubby and Lap. We certainly
hope that, once away from the old mule,
Barnhardt will not revert to the primitive,
but that he will continue in his talented
channels, which will ultimately lead him on
the one hand to the Olympic Games, and on
the other to a Ph.D.

Secretary-Treasurer (4) ; Glee Club.

Ella May has missed her calling \\c firmly
Lx-lic\e. Dr. Cranford predicts old-maid-
ship for her, and we wonder if such will be
the case because she argues so cleverly.
She ne\er gives up if convinced, and holds
that "a woman convinced against her wi
is of the same opinion still." It makes no
difference what Ella May chooses for her
life's calling. We know that she will find
success because her friendly manner and
absolute frankness are certain to bring
results other than friends.

Benson has never shown any insatiable
cra\ing for the limelight, but he has more
than upheld his side of the scholastic stand-
ing, as his membership to the QOig and the
Phi Beta Kappa will ampK' testify. He
has done much for '21, and his classmates
are justK proud of him. He arri\ed in the
fall of 1917, alone and unlabeled, but since
then he has demonstrated that it is entirely
unnecessary for him to take any course in
broken doses. It will not be a surprise to
any of us to find him settled after this year
in some larger quarter than Swan Quarter.

Joe is another product of Durham, and
upholds the traits of D.H.S. — steady labor.
He shines in Economics (?), and pulls cords
with Tubby. For two years he confined his
athletics to walking, but since he has become
a Senior, he has blossomed forth in lurid
glory on the basketball floor.

Those fellows from the West are of the
stuti from which men are made, as Buckner
soon demonstrated when he joined '21,
coming from Weaver. Judging from the
photograph which hangs over Buckncr's
typewriting desk, he is a man of settled
affections.

great pleasure to present, Charlie, the man
who spent twehe months in France without
falling for the mademoiselles. Sur\i\ing
this ordeal, he returned to Trinity and
entered the class of '21. His favorite pastime
is writing term papers. As Assistant
Manager he has done good work in getting
out this Chanticleer.

Jim is perfectly at home with a rod
(but no reel). He caters to surveying and
physics. His latest plans are for a railroad
or some other means of connection with
Saturn — having conquered the elements of
physics in\olved and know ing that a straight
line ma\' get there. Luck to you, Jim!
.Although he has been hard at work on plans
tor bridging the Pacific Ocean and cutting
a canal along the crest of the Rocky Moun-
tains, he has found time to become very
proficient in basketball in the last two years,
and anybody who played against him in the
class series will testify as to his ability to
spank em in.

Carroll has figured strongly in the pitcher's
box, and has caused the downfall of many
.300 batters. He is more at home in the
diamond than he would he handling a
diamond. He is "hail fellow well met",
and he enjoys the good old hull. But
"Valor" doesn't ring true to his name when
it comes to the ladies, so the hoys say.
Outside of performances on the athletic
fields, he has threaded his college career
chiefiy along "the cool sequestered vales of
life." His big virtue is keeping his mouth
closed and going about his own business,
which is a very unusual thing for a man who
has acquired so many en\ iable honors.

Here is old Ca\', who in his own phrase-
ology "hasn't got any honors and doesn't
want any ". He is a wise bird. Cavenaugh
spent about a year in Paree, and since that
time he can't talk about anything except
the time when he is going back and live the
rest of his life there. His greatest ambition
is to be a musician, and all his singing,
although he says that he can't carry a tune
in a bucket with the lid on tight, runs to
operatic arias; however it is no unusua
thing for one to pass by his door at midnight
and hear him warbling melodiously, "Quand
Maclelon \ient nous servie a bois. " We have
concluded, therefore, that he has left his
love in Avalon or somevxhere else, and at
sometime or other he anticipates going bac
Cav "philanthrophaly " adopted Tub last
year, hut during recent examinations a
rupture was occasioned in the family over a
History term paper. It was very tragic to
all who knew about it. It is said that even
O. T. broke down ani.1 cried.

Emma is a politician of the deepest dye,

for some public office in the near future. She
is a co-ed who never "hops crips", but
searches the catalogue for the hardest
of subjects. We ha\e never seen her study-
ing, and, therefore, we ha\e decided that she
surelv must ha\e been born bright.

Chandler will surprise you. He gathers
speed w ith distance. He was unheard of as
a baseball player for two years, but take a
look at his record for igio. He hits them
all, and he catches them all. even if he has to
fall on his nose to do so. It is rumored that
he is gi\ing a course in Education to Pro-
