Although Elizabeth is small, she has a big heart, of which fact we are constantly aware by her sun-
shiny disposition and her ability for making others love her. She is quiet and retiring, but has an
appealing personality which makes one know she's a real pal. She says she is going to be an instructor
of the young, and we believe that success awaits her in that field, or in any other line of work she may

"Cile" has in her the combination of scholarship and sportsmanship. There is not a bigger sport in
college. Though her work never keeps her from having a good time, she has more I's and 2's than
most of us. She can write an interesting theme in the French or EnglisS language on subjects that seem
impossible for literary interpretation. Sincerity and loyalty to her friends are her most dominant charac-
teristics — exemplified in her friendship with her roommate, "Frank." On the whole, she is one of '20's

admirable traits. Such a person is Nelle. During her four years here she has steadily grown in the
esteem of both faculty and students. She is an excellent student, a girl of solid judgment, and with a
keen sense of humor. She is always at work trying to solve the problems of the Human Body. But
while overflowing with sincerity of purpose, she is not lacking in a humor not always apparent to the
casual observer. However, her many accomplishments lose nothing from her reticence and modesty, for
at heart she is warm and true, and all count it a privilege to be numbered among her friends.

Dignified and reserved? Yes. But such sweetness of disposition is rarely found. Mary was formerly
a member of '19, but sickness caused Red and White to give one of their most valuable possessions lo
'20. Her congeniality and democratic ideals have given her many true, genuine friends. Besides special-
izing in chemistry, Mary became sufficiently interested in other subjects to receive l*s and 2's. As the
President's daughter, she works when necessary, and the rest of the time may be found driving "the
car." Lavender and White wishes her much success in the coming year.

"A lo» and gentle voice, dear woman's chief est charm!"

Adelphlan; Chorus, '16-'17, '19-"20; Y. W. C. A. rhoir; House President, 'M-'20.

In Mary we find one seemingly quiet and reserved, but if this modest and unassuming manner is due to
reservation it is a most admirable trait. She doesn't know anything bad about anybody — or, if she does,
she keeps it to herself. She is always ready to help those in need, and the sunshine of her sweet disposi-
tion has endeared her to us all. Mary's specially is music, and her sympathetic interpretation and beau-
tiful touch assure us that she will come out on lop. Although Mary usually plays a silent part, her
influence is felt, and we know thai behind lhat silence is something worth while.

played the role of Dogberry, the Constable, in "Much Ado About No'hing." Always ready to soothe
the homesick heart, she quite often brightens the day for someone with her clever interpretations of "Lil

world could be filled with happy, gifled folk just like Rouss.

One would have Io go far to find a Iruer and better friend than Cornelia. Those who have been for-
tunate enough to come into closer friendship with her know what she really is — a hard worker, a
generous heart, and a sincere character. The greatest of these is a sincere character. What would we
do without her musical ability, for she has an unlimited capacity and great possibilities in the musical
art. We sometimes imagine that Cornelia's affections lie elsewhere (?). However, we predict that
she will teach piano for at least one year.

is "just human." Because she is just brimming over with enthusiasm for the Y. W., and is making it

She is a truly frank, sympathetic friend; a girl all to herself, but such a one that she belongs to us all.
