Johnie is one of these fellows who believe

IF you are looking for a quiet, good-natured
sort of chap, here he is. His greatest
ambition in life is to have a host of friends
and to kno\i- Pharmacy. He has proven him-
self to be a good scout, thoroughly capable
of delivering the goods when Dean Howell's
quizzes come due. His chief hobby, how-
ever, is waiting for the morning mail to bring
the glad tidings.

Truly we can say that he is immune to
the common evils found on The Hill except
the Pickwick We might also add here that
every Sunday finds him an earnest listener to
what the parson has to say,

Harland is so filled with Pharmacy that
it has been said that he can recommend a
remedy for every ill known to man This
may not all be true, but he has the ability to
accomplish whatever he decides and wants
to do.

So for this energetic and generous son ol
Carolina gifted with the cherished charm we
call personality we predict a success and joy
which arc well deserved.

WE know of only one mistake this young
man has made. He went first to the Old
Dominion State and there attended the Medi-
cal College of Virginia. But now we can
forgive him, for he has seen the error of his
wavs and added his impressive name to Caro-
lina's roll of immortal Pharmacists. .And
like all our classmates who came from the
■'M. C. V. ' Pat has done well in our midst.

Only a few days after his arrival he was
gathered into our fold and has become a
typical Carolina man even to the prevalent
habit of attending the "Pick,"

We see no reason why "Pat" should not
be a credit to Carolina in the years to come.
.All his traits are indicative of that. He has
genius, diplomacy, ambition and we doubt
that he could fail.

energy; of sense and nonsense "Dunk,
during his Freshman year, hated but two

the name of the little town and just how
many great men had been born there, but
now when the question ot his nativity is
brought up he says, merely, "Irom the moun-
tains " It has always been a mystery how he
ever obtained such an accurate knowledge ol
just how much work each course in the L'ni-
versity demands for passing. Before I forget
it. never ask "Dunk" to sing, for the noise
that he makes when he tries will ruin even
iron eardrums Taken all-in-all, he is one of
the best fellows in the world, always with
that cheerful smile and handshake for every-
one, "Dunk "is a loyal and sincere friend.
We believe that he will go far in any profes-

Si'MvI has the highest ideals of any man I

the opinion of e\eryone who knows him —
and many do — for he has that quality ot

that will do credit to any organization when
he leaves the University You will never
grow tired of his company, for he has that
rare quality, possessed by so few people ot
being both a good listener and an interesting
talker. Whoever "she" is, we are quite sure
that she is a lucky girl

DOC" is another one of those Greensboro
guys whose time at this University has
been hastened up in the study of pill-rolling
in Dean Howell's quarters .Although it takes
onlv two years to complete the course of
Pharmacy, he could spend onU' one year here
before he spent another in Draper It is not
known whether it is drugstore work or those
Draper damsels that continually call "Doc"
to that little city, but it is known that when
not in school he spends most of his time there
rather than in his hometown.

.Any member of the Pharmacy Class can
point out numerous good qualities but his
bad ones are few and far between

Were it not for the "Pick. " the "Orphe-
um and the ladies. "Doc s' grades would
be much farther up the alphabet over on
Miss Noble's books There is no doubt that
after he has passed the N. C State Board he
will return to that wonderful City of Draper
and there take up his Pharmacy duties on a
much larger scale.

by The Carolina Playmakers, and after suc-

ENLOE, or "Cato " as he is more affec-
tionately known is a specimen of what
we commonly call a Southern Highlander
He hails from the region of the tall and uncut
usually referred to as "The Land of the Sky

"Cato" is one of the many titles which
he possesses; however, this one fits him best
because he is not lacking in the qualities of a
great Statesman. These Statesman-like tra'ts
have caused "Cato to take up and study
Dean Carroll's arts of Business and Banking
This he has mastered with great success, put-
ting it into practice many times during his stay
at College.

We predict that "Reg" will some day
be a great financier and all the papers will
carry his name as head-line material And it
will only be a question of time before he will
be a member of a great triumvirate with
.America's greatest magnates

"Reg" never neglected the other side of
College life He was always present when
anything was happening, from a football-
scrimmage to the biggest social function on
the campus Although he never attended a
Summer School, he knew as much about the
ladies as old Kipling himself

"Reg, " above all is a man with strong
character, winning personality, and conserva-
tive in his dealings with the problems of life.

Quiet, unassuming but ever ready with a
cheerful word or gay bit of wit, he has en-
tangled himself in the hearts of the many
who know him. And although he has chosen
Business as his life's work and developed the
cigar habit as a necessary prerequisite to suc-
cess as a big-business man, he has not yet
adopted the hard-boiled attitude toward the
rabble that we usually attribute to the type.
In fact, it is well known about the campus
that his frequent trips to Greensboro would
indicate a soft heart, and explain, perhaps,
the far-away, dreamy expression which he
wears on Monday mornings.

He is a good fellow and true, honest and
fair and handsome. With these qualities he

PAUL has successfully blended hard and
consistent work with sterling adaptness
for making friends. His irresistible good
humor, always exemplified by a smile, has in
no small way contributed to his success with
this combination.

Paul is a deep thinker, a hard worker
and a loyal friend. As proof of this statement,
we cite his brilliant record in his work, and
his consideration, congeniality, and love for
his friends. He is full of life and cheerfulness,
and that girl of whom he talks so much in his
sleep, would certainly be a foolish female to
turn down such a good man

Paul has a valuable spirit of determina-
tion which never allows him to leave a task
before it is completed, and well completed at
that In choosing Engineering as his life
work, he has but justified that spirit in him
which takes joy in helping his fellow man
and his country.

Paul's favorite pastime is counting bugs
in the sanitary laboratory, where he and
George Ausband are entrusted with the re-
sponsibility of furnishing the LIniversity and
the town with potable water We all expect
of Paul no more than that which he will be-
come, a successful Engineer. So here's to

IF perseverance and stick-to-it-iveness are
qualities in a man which bring success,
then H. D.'s cup will be full and overflowing.
He was content to remain one of the iron men
for a long time before he received reward.
When the opposing line tried to run over him,
they found too much in the way. But not
only was he noted on the football field; but
also as the keeper of the Summer School gate.
Many a couple enthralled by the subject —
love — have been fearful lest the iron hand of

performing this thankless task, and receiving
much abuse, he always maintained his equilib-
