ABRAM SHRIER SOLOMON

Wilmington, N. C.

Degref: B.S., Commerce

Age: 2/

Grail Monogram Club, Varsttv Tennis. Captain ('24.

ABE" has many ambitions. Among thesc
are: taking a graduate course at Har-
vard; making an extensive cruise in a yacht;
being an expert C P. A. ; developing Strong-
fort shoulders; and taking the tennis team to
Annapolis.

We hope that the midshipmen do not
beat him on the tennis court as they did in
the parlor — they beat him a love game there.
But as "Abe" is going to Harvard next year,
and will doubtless make his "H" in tennis,
we expect him to make a strong comeback.

We regret very much that his numerous
trophy cups will go with him. They will be
greatly missed in the drinking season.

Had one of the Senior superlatives been
the soundest sleeper, "Abe" would have been
"Champ." He can go to sleep in nothing
flat, but the rule doesn't work vice \crsa
worth a nickel. We must admit, though,
that like Abraham Lincoln, he is wide awake
what time he isn't sleeping.

We all join in wishing "Salty " much svic-
cess in all his life's ambitions.

THIS intellectual young man with the
curly locks, so much admired by the fair
sex. is none other than Jimmie Spoon who
hails from the "Queen City of the South "

Spoon, during his years at the U. N C .
has made many friends, which is quite an
accomplishment, for the making of friends is
synonymous with success.

All-in-all, Spoon is quite the boy. and
those that know him have little doubt but
that he will be a success in life. His popu-
larity and business ability are further attested
by the fact that when a secretary is to be
elected, it seems that spoon is always selected
and, strange to say, he always fills the bill
If it's a political frame-up, or a game ol
bridge, or friendly bull session, spoon is
always there to take an active part, but he
is always burning the midnight oil over some
Pharmacy problems. Spoon's chief hobbies
are Chemistry 35 and rolling pills, and we arc
expecting to hear great things from him in
the Pharmacy World, for Pharmacy seems
to be his calling after departing from us. and
we wish him great success in his chosen
profession.

THERE are few men on the campus or else-

It must be m.entioned that .Allen pos-

the hearts of both sexes. Leaving Carolina
with a rich heritage of character, ability and

success that is real in his life's work as a

LEON R. STATON

Henderson, N. C.

Degree: AB.

Age: ;q

Henderson County Club

THIS worthy lad hails from the hills In
our estimation, he is an excellent example
of "mountaineerism. " except for one thing,
he IS shy of the gentler sex. Perhaps his
gentlemanly nature revolts against the cave-
man characteristics of his fellows This, how-
ever, is merely hypothetical. We admit that
if he knew as much about the women as he
does about Chemistry, he would have a dis-
tinct advantage over the rest of us.

He is an unassuming youth, but those
who really know him can give ample proof
of his unusual intellectual ability. He gave
Phi Beta Kappa a close call, but French was
his "Jonah." All of his friends at Carolina
will miss him greatly, but most of all the
underclassmen who take him as a general
storehouse of facts, and run to him for all
their "original" ideas. It might be said that
he puffs a nonchalant Cinco at the Henderson
County Club Meetings.

Leon is a real man. sensible, likeable, good-
natured, and industrious. We predict for
him a successful career in Med. School and
in life.

PETE" hails from that county which has
been made famous by the jack rabbits.
He always takes advantage of opportunities
to boast of its attributes, and never fails to
take issue with any doubtful ones.

Although rather slow in his actions, he
accomplishes every purpose with an ease
which characterizes his College career. He
has a high disdain for "boning," and on
nights before quizzes may be found either at
the "Pick" or indulging in his favorite pas-
time, reading. "The Cosmopolitan" and
"The Saturday Evening Post" are the main
constituents of his library. Nevertheless, at
the end of each quarter his name has been
found on the right side of Dr. Wilsons books
"Pete" has chosen the profession of
Electrical Engineering for his life's work.
We are confident that the knowledge secured
here, combined with his genial personality
and "Stout" determination will lead him
toward the top of the ladder. We wish him
success.

RUSSELL drifted into Chapel Hill some
four years ago from Southern Pines, the
resort which has been made famous by its
proximity to Pinehurst, Although not en-
tirely corrupted by living in the midst of golf
and fox-hunting, pink teas and dancing, it
required only a year at Oak Ridge and a
Carolina Summer School to finish him en-
tirely He has been a changed man since
subjecting himself to the baneful influence of
Carolina during the summer months when
Co-eds run rampant.

Russell has been disgustingly proficient
in the small matter of passing courses, but
it is not for this that he will be remembered.
His cheery personality and his readiness to
help out in any difficulty ha\'e made his
graduation a real loss to Carolina. We see
him leave with deep regret, and hope that
next vear will see him back in pursuit of a
Ph D — anvthing to keep him in Chapel Hill.

BILL" is one of that inimitable class of
people who can get away with murder;
do gobs of work; converse delightfully and
sometimes irrelevantly on all kinds of sub-
jects, pass a few courses on the sideline; and
yet walk around the campus as though he
had done nothing worth talking about and as
unconcerned and as unhurried as Dr. Green-
law.

Seriously, though, he has run the gamut
of the various activities and has selected only
those which he considered worth while. His
various talents have become evident in such
worthy institutions as the Yackety Yack,
the German Club, and the Wigue and Masque.

We have heard that "Bill" is leaving us
for the wilds of Europe in the n;ar future.
We commend him to the tender cares of the
foreigners and hope for his return, for he is
entirely too valuable to lose without regret.



HERBERT LEE SWAIN
Mackeys. N. C.
Degree: A.B.

Age: 2;

FORMED on the good old plan, a true and
downright honest man," is adequate in
expressing the sentiments of all Herbert's
classmates.

This downright honest man hails from
the environment of Eastern North Carolina,
from the small "pueblo" called Mackeys.
Herbert has the honor of boasting an A.B.
degree within three years and three Summer
Schools, also to his credit it may be added
that he has worked during his three years
here at Swain Hall

Coming here with his pockets empty, he
has accomplished more than an ordinary
man would think possible. Empty pockets
have not marred Herbert's good nature in
the least, for underneath it all is a heart that
wins the esteem of any man as well as that of
the opposite se.\. He is of that caliber of per-
sonality which will undoubtedly make a suc-
cess of whatever he chooses for his life work,
that is, if he goes into it with the same deter-
mination and energy that have characterized
him all through his College career

We arc fully justified in saying in a sum-
mary of Herbert's qualities that he is a man
with a personality we like to see; a fellow as
good as his word, with a heart to resolve, a
head to contrive, and a hand to execute.

Good luck, Herbert! May bad luck
ne\er kiss you.

TATE hails from Lenoir, or to hear him
express it. "from the city of a thousand
opportunities." All who have come in con-
tact with him have discovered a man of
quiet and winning personality who is pos-
sessed of the faculty of making friends easily.
One of his regrets while at Carolina was
that the University did not give a course in
sleeping. We feel sure that he could ha\e
made Phi Beta Kappa if he could have ob-
tained that course. But he has never let his
great desire for sleep interfere with his work.
Due to his interest and excellent work, he
was selected as Instructor in Pharmacy dur-
ing his Senior year.

We are wishing for him a very happy and
successful career and feel sure that this is in
store for him.



TAYLOR hails from Northampton County
which has produced a large number of
noble and distinguished men who have played
a great part in the work of the State. He
will broaden the field and contribute his
to the nation since he intends to begin work
in the old State of Virginia.

He is an exceptional student, having led
many of his classes. By his work here one
could never tell that he has been carrying on
correspondence courses all the while ; and
from all signs of the times, these courses will
result in one hundred per cent success He
is a living refutation of the statement that
one can only do one thing at a time well.

ludging from the experience we have
had with Taylor in his two years' sojourn
here, we predict for him a successful career
and a life of service to his profession and
humanity.

whether it be bridge, dancing, or what.

But he never lets his play interfere with
his work. His greatest asset, outside of his
ability to do his stuff on the cinderpath. is
making feminine hearts flutter on the dance
floor or in shady nooks. He has not decided
just what he will do when he finishes Caro-
lina, but we know he will succeed, whether
it be racing Paddock or taking Ben Lyon's
contract away from him.

Though she has danced her way into the

She is one who can keep a mean between
two extremes. She can dance and socialize
to her heart's content without being accused
of being light-headed; and she can study
without becoming a bookworm Such a well-

He has made his time on The Hill worth

his affiliation with many of the student organ-

profession which he has chosen as his life's
work, and we fee! \er\' confident that when
the time comes to consider the men who shall
lead his profession to the front, that our
friend James L, will be in the front ranks

We must not get the idea that he de\otes
all of his time to books, because he finds time
to show his feelings toward the ladies. He is
quite an ardent "wooer." because we recall
many occasions when those mystic wiles and
dimpled smiles have been the cause of many a
lass losing grip on her heart. Although
"Tommy" is somewhat a ladies' man. no
