NELL" is one of the kind of people who are
always ready to help, and ne\er worr\-
whether they will receive credit and praise
commensurate with their efforts. The time
she has spent at Carolina has been full of
work of all kinds; with plenty of attention to
recreation as well as to her studies.

She is consistent, studious and inter-
esting. She will certainly make a success of
whatever she attempts if she works with the
same enthusiasm she has shown here.

JOSH, ' as he is known to his many friends
on the campus, came to us with one object
in view, and that was to prove to us that big
feet are not a criterion of succeeding or failing
to pass "Dean Howell's" course in Pharmacy.

Burgess is of the kind that is slow but
sure. He has that great asset (ability) which
is sure to win him success if he will use it
right, and we belie\e he will. He has won
the friendship of many while at Carolina and
is liked by all who have come in contact
with him.

The ladies are aware of his winning per-
sonality, and as a result the fairer sex seek
the light of his brown eyes.

His many friends are wishing for him
much happiness and success in his career as a
druggist and feel sure that the best of lite is
in store for him.

with all those who know him, and has the
admiration of both students and professors.
There will be many who will hate to see him

of the good qualities lie has shown here he
can make a great success of anything he
chooses to do out in the cold, cruel world.

DAN Burroughs is one of those well-
poised individuals who is just as certain
to enjoy life as he is to succeed. Dan is quiet
and minds his own business as well as any
member of the class Some even think that
he is non-communicative, but those fortunate
enough to number themselves among his close
friends know better.

.\ few times Dan has been accused of
joining the boys in a "Bull" session, but on
the whole he has had little time for pedigreed
nonsense and bunk; rather, his major quality
is a fine strain of loyalty and sincerity that
begets confidence. He comes from Scotland
Neck, but the name of the town should not
be counted against him for it has turned out
plenty of other good men. We don't know
what line he is going to follow — and we are
not sure that he does himself — but we are
sure of one thing: that whatever he does, he
will do it quietly and well.

To-day, he leaves us. but what a change!
He has discarded the characteristics of his
early rustic life. His polished manners and
his sheik-like appearance would make you
think he was a member of Fifth Avenue

"Caldwelder's" philosophy of life is very
unique. He is somewhat reserved in manner:
he never goes outside his path to make a new
acquaintance: but if once his "reserved"
shell is broken, he will be a friend to the last.
His speech is the drawl of an ultra-Southerner,
but every word he says is full of meaning and
directly to the point. He thinks more and
says less than the average student.

"Caldwelder" has spent the major por-
tion of his time in Saunders Hall He is a

CAMPBELL is a practical sort of fellow
with a spontaneous sense of humor; seri-
ous when seriousness is needed, and sincere
to a degree that makes us consider ourselves
luckv to list him as an intimate friend. -Al-
though believing that intelligence should be
recognized, he is no champion of the social
aristocracy, and admires a snob about as
much as a cat enjoys a swim.

While more practical than most, and
making an excellent record in studies, he is
not too practical to let textbooks interfere
with education. Numbering joke books
among the others, and having an exceptional
ability to remember witty phrases, he is
always ready to come at you with some irre-
sistible squib-

M-ARTIN is the greatest financial wizard
of the University. We figure he has
made over ten thousand dollars while engaged
in acquiring more knowledge to go with the
genius of business ability which he has. He is
equally at home whether it be at a University

sions from New York to Palm Beach, or a
business trip to Chicago.

It is also reported that he spends quite a
bit of his time in Norfolk; in fact, every week-
end, trying to form a partnership. Mart's a
true friend with a heart as big as his line. We
predict a great future for him in anything he
undertakes. .As a business man. student and
friend he will always be remembered and
respected by the Class of iq2 5.

THIS was the man who went with Pearlc
to the picnic. He lets nothing worry him
The "business man" from Philadelphia was
not indifferent as to his own pleasures. He
studies them; he hunts for new ones; and he
tries new tricks on the old ones.

"Chunk" is the only man in recent years
who has had the pleasure of taking a drink
on the steps of the Confederate Capitol. The
V. M. I. game is always incidental to this
annual event.

Ladies — well yes. No, he is not a mar-
ried man. He will never allow any limita-
tions to be imposed on his conduct. He has
refused to marry better-looking girls than he
will ever again get a chance to marry.

But seriously, "Chunk" studies hard.
He knows how to study and get through with
it. Efficiency, thats it. It will take him far
in the world. With his level head, his savoir
/aire, and the fact that he knows how to get
what he wants, he will make his mark in his
chosen profession. Banking it is, and he has
made a good start already.

DOUG" is an authority on Victor records,
dance orchestras, and the latest fox trots.
Come to think of it, though, we have never
seen him at a dance down here, and we cannot
help but wonder why. We are sure he dances,
but then it seems as if he never does. There
were only a few to get on the first make-up of
the Dean's List, and we are glad to say that
"Doug ' was one of them. He deserved it if
anyone did. He is not a bookworm, but his
name is generally found on the Honor Roll.
"Doug" is not an athlete, either, but he is
an ardent fan and a loyal supporter of all the
Carolina teams. We would hesitate to call
him a woman-hater, but we really do not believe
that he takes very much interest in woman-
kind. We never hear him raving about the
Sweet Briar, St. Mary's, or Salem girls, or any
other girls, for that matter. With his natural
talent and love for arguing, we are sure that he
will make a successful lawyer, and his host of
friends on the campus wish him the greatest
possible prosperity and success. "Doug" is
a darn good fellow, from every standpoint,
and we don't care who knows it.

BY his outspoken nature, and simplicity of
manner, Tom has won for himself a host
of friends and admirers at Carolina, Even
casual acquaintances know him as a fine fel-
low while a more thorough knowledge of him
reveals an original and winning personality
which is hard to beat.

Besides the inherent good qualities which
he brought from Asheville, four years ago,
Tom has acquired a love for, and a knowledge
of, literature and art, clinched by a two
months' trip through Central and Southern
Europe which make him a boon companion
and a fascinating conversationalist.

By dint of the above, and a very con-
genial nature he has become quite a "social

FOLLOWING the precedent set her by
two of her beloved professors, Elizabeth
also has shown discretion in adopting the Old
North State, although she pretends her favor-
ite tune is "Carry Me Back to Old Virginny."
We have heard that she is taking a Hard
course in music for the purpose of expressing
in musical composition her appreciation in
Carolina. Elizabeth really is versatile, and
whatever she undertakes she does well. She
is artistic as well as musical, and we predict
for her a rosy future in designing coats-of-
arms for family trees. Nor is her ability less
in Mathematics and languages, though it is
difficult to understand how she can digest so
much "Bacon" without increasing her weight.

WITHIN a class there must be medioerc
people, yet they are never written up
without the most enthusiastic and extrava-
gant praise. So when it happens that a man
like "Bill" Cocke is to be written up who is
really one of the few outstanding members of
the Class of '25. it is hard to give him the
praise he deserves and merits without becom-
ing ridiculously extravagant in order to make
the write-up sound different.

That he has served as President of the
Student Body, that he was tapped for the
Golden Fleece in his Junior year and that he
has been the President of Phi Beta Kappa
show that he has received the highest honors
that one can achieve here.

A student in the real sense of the word,
a dependable and efficient executive and a
writer of no mean ability. Bill is a person
from whom we expect not the ordinary "great
things" which are expected from the mem-
bers of the extraordinary Class of iq25, but
unusual things. His success here is indubi-

been variously described as "pools of blue

magnetic, to judge from the appearance of

COLE' is one of the most universally-
admired men in the whole Student Body.
A short time ago he was only a homesick
Freshman among the many; today, he occu-
pies a place in the hearts of his fellow students
which only few men ever attain. In recogni-
tion of his high ideals and admirable work he
was elected President of the " Y" last spring,
and those who have been associated with him
in this work are thoroughly convinced that he
has proven more than worthy of his trust.
However, he is not only successful in execu-
tive circles, but one will find him on the roster
of Carolina's most popular athletes

.As one of the crack pitchers on the Var-
sity nine, "Cole" has a mean habit of slipping
them over so fast that the other side can t
see them. Dame Rumor would ha\c it that
some "fair one" is serving as a guiding star
for all of his achievements. For this we can-
not vouch. But aside from all of his accom-
plishments or why he has been successful, we
can say that here is a noble, true, big-hearted
idealist who is inspired with a broad vision
which is bound to carry him to success in his
life's work of service to his fellow men

LIKE his Brother Cottontails, which squirm
through the briar patches of Chatham
County, has Cooper squirmed through his
College course, without getting scratched bv
"E's" or "F's. " and without deviating from
the beaten path to graduation. At the kick-
off he chose Electrical Engineering as his pro-
fession, and the fervor with which he has fol-
lowed his course does him credit. Cooper
says little but studies faithfully, and ranks
high in the estimation of his classmates.

Cooper is a veritable magnet to the
weaker sex. He has graduated with honors
from two Summer Schools, and we have

of his personal qualifications make him so

may be his smooth blond hair or it may be

ceived his preparatory training at the Cul-

he distinguished himself in debating, and won
a lasting place in the hearts of all his school-
mates. He entered the L'niversity in IQ21.
Earl, as he is known among the fellows, is a
congenial lad and can always be assured of a
host of friends. He is a good student and
bids fair to make a name for himself in his
chosen profession It is rumored, especially
in Summer School circles, that he is quite a

that God knew what he was talking about
when he said that man needed a helpmate
We predict for Earl a successful career, and
