"Music hath charms to soothe the .S'kt'-
agc breast."

From the instant in his Fresh year
when he hegan to assist the chapel
piano with his vioHn, Kubelik has been
a recognized leader in Davidson's
musical circles. "Making a violin talk"
is play to him, and John Philip Sousa
himself has nothing on "Bacchus" as
a director. But don't think for a mo-
ment that this Georgia Cracker con-
lines himself to music alone. For his
work in the Eu. Society he was re-
warded by a little pink regalia in whicli
to display his manly form speakings
and commencement ; and among the
odoriferous fumes of the Chemistry lab.
he is perfectly at home. Moreover,
"Bacchus" is a thoroughly good fellow
and his departure during the \ear was
a distinct loss to the class.

When Andrew makes up his mind to
do a thing, he generally does it, and
does it well. A good student, an excel-
lent writer, a faithful worker, a man
of ability and an original one — all this
is combined in our capable Editor-in-
Chief of this volume of "Quips and
Cranks." Not only in this but in the
various college activities his tireless ef-
forts have brought him success. Sev-
eral times he has crossed swords with
the reviewer in the Eu. Society, and
tliis year lie was an important cog in
the Senior football team. And as a
ladies' man, our friend from Mississippi
is in Class .A Xo. 1 : he can certainly
hold his own with the fair sex. There
is no doubt that .\ndrew is a man of
ability, and some day we will say with
pride that we were classmates of his.

When in liis Sc>l)h > ear "Dickie"
plowed with sucli vigor througli the
football line, the coaches began to
prophesy a great future for him in the
game. But he stopped, put all his en-
ergy into his studies, and the result you
see today. He is one of the most con-
scientiously hardworking fellows in
college, and to see "Dickie" concentrate
is an education in itself. Rut in this
he has wronged many of his fellow-
students, since he has deprived them of
the privilege of knowing him intimately.
But those who do know him know a
gentleman, a good-hearted, absent-
minded, lovable fellow, who will some
day make his mark in t!ic world.

a matter of habit with Herman, and he
seems to treat the affair as a pastime

account of nightmares connected witli
our "dips." His classmates early rec-

him to represent them on the Student

A man of fair countenance, excellent
intellect, and dogged determination is
"Gangley." This son of Tennessee is
not afraid of hard work, nor does he
ride all the crips he can find ; still, when
he got to the point where he was taking
onlj' six tickets, his loafing was shock-
ing. Entering College with the Class
of Eighteen, lie soon decided to drop a
year, and by two years' hard work has
been classed as a Senior, and graduates
a true and loyal Seventeener. He takes
special delight in astronomical prob-
lems, and if you are concerned over the
oscillations of the epivertical asteroids
in their ellii)tical perturbations, go to
Carroll about it and he will enlighten
you to your heart's content. Good luck

in knee trousers, with a bunch of prep,
work to cover. In these four years, he
has not only made his degree, but has
colored it with the Honor Roll. And he
didn't cash in on his health to do it
either. He is now a well developed man
— physically, as his work on the class
football and basketball teams demon-
strate; intellectually, as attested by the
Honor Roll ; and morally, as his up-
right life on the campus has shown. His
earnest and conscientious labor will tell
in his life-work, the ministry.

"A wise man will make more opf'ortuiii-

Here is a fellow that is looked up to
by us all, for Tom is in a class bj' him-
self when it comes to height. Big of
stature, his heart and intellect are in
proportion. When he crams a cigar
back in one corner of his mouth, and
begins talking out of the other corner,
}'ou may be assured that what he says
is going to be to the point. Tom seems
bound to succeed in everything he en-
ters, whether it be in his student or in
his business activities, where he is es-
pecially prominent. Judging from his
success here, we will say that he will
some day be a business man of whom
we will be proud.

This light-haired son of Atlanta re-
turned to the fold this year, after being
absent from us during the time that
we were struggling through our Junior
year. But he is going to show us how
to graduate in three years, for he says
it would never do to not finish with old

about as easy as the most of us make
tliat coveted 70. What's more, he has
made good in everything that he has
undertaken — and he is no one-sided

from "Ham" as he goes out to Africa as

"Rachael" is a (juiet and unassuming
fellow, but one that possesses the power
to make you laugh — and the world loves
the man who can make her laugh. There
is no one who appreciates a good joke
more than he or who can tell one anj-
better. Although he doesn't shine as an
athlete himself, there is not a man in
college who takes more interest in the
teams, or backs them more than
"Rachael." If you want to hear real
scientific rooting, just go to a football
game with him ; he is in a class by him-
self. And when it comes to taking in
tickets and the "kale" at the games he is
surpassed by none. He has a good bus-
iness head and sound judgment in finan-
cial matters, and when he gets out in
the business world we predict much
success for Manager Harris.

"War, he sang, is toil and trouble;

The Goddess of Fortune certainly
must have smiled on Rawls' birth, for
seldom has anyone gone through col-
lege with as little trouble as he. While
tlie rest of us are knee-deep in study,
Rawls will likely be found drop-kicking,
playing golf, or sleeping; yet, getting
shot is an experience almost foreign
to him, and when reports come out, the
grades of this loyal son of Tarboro
arouse the envy of students far more
laborious than he. In addition, his per-
suasive ability is something uncanny.
.Altogether, Rawls is a thoroughly like-
able fellow, and we e.xpect great things
of him after he leaves ns for real life.

Though solemn and serious. Dave has

"In every gesture dignity."

We are glad indeed that this son of
dignity and brevity has chosen to grad-
uate with '17 instead of casting his fate
with his original class of 1916. He was
never known to say much and what he
does say is almost in a confidential
whisper. No one here has ever heard
him say twenty successive words, but
we are convinced that many a lady
within a radius of twenty-five miles
could give a glowing account of his
ability to "speak as never man spake" —
to her. But when you want a man who
will take a hard job and stick to it
whetlier it be passing hard yickets or
uijholding the honor of the class on the
gridiron, lie's your man.

Rees is going to be a famous M. D.

that will attempt the thing that can't

Here is a fellow who has been a great
factor in making '17's enviable athletic

been a mainstay on the class football,
baseball, and basketball teams. And
Bill is a star in other fields too. If
there's anybody who knows any more

Which of his two well-known charac-

genious-like accuracy in sciences or his
unerring precision in carrying the "pig-

that even the members of his own class
do not know which has precedence. For
while he was hitting the line like a bat-
tering-ram for consistent gains, the
Prof, was marking a grade of 100 on
his Math, paper. With his graduation,
Davidson loses a good student and a
splendid athlete, and the students as
true a comrade and friend as they ever
possessed. Of such men '17 is proud.
