of Norlh Carolina and L'niversity life
which makes for the social graces Polished
to a fine degree he might be called the "glass
of fashion and the mould of form." But
Louis would not appreciate the coenomen in
the least, for in spite of his reputation as a
social dog and leader of dances he is decidedly
one of the "retiring and modest members of
the Class of iq25."

He showed his good judgment in choos-
ing Carolina in preference to the College in
his old home town, being a native of Raleigh,
If his judgment continues consistently good,
he will most certainly make a success in life

ONE sunny afternoon in the Fall of iqzi
several hundred students got off the
Carrboro. Limited and made their way
slowly toward the LIniversity campus. Among
this group was Henry Clitton Hart, a Fresh-
man. To him at first the pathway of educa-
tion must have seemed long and difficult but
he has stepped along it with a determination
and persistency which allow no defeat.

Early in his course. "H. C' became
attached to the gods of Mathematics, and he
has been a de\otcd worshiper ever since.
Besides mathematics, physics, mechanics,
chemistry and the bull education courses are
his favorites

"William S.". despite his title, is of the
quiet, unassuming type, and has the confi-
dence of everyone It is not known whether
he will teach Mathematics in some high
school or College, or whether he will take up
Engineering as his life profession, but in
either case, his characteristic determination
and persistency, should bring him the success
which he deserves.

the Magazine during the dark, belated and
unfruitful days of iq24-25.

With all her accomplishments in literary
lines she found time to serve on the Student
Council of the Woman's Association and to
assume the responsible yet thankless duty of
being Monitor for the Dormitory. When
Russell Inn burned, "Mary Cal " was relieved
of the latter duty and was given more time

THIS fellow hit these parts in the Fall of

later led to believe that his life will be hap-
piest spent as a Pharmacist. Fortunately —
for us, anyway — he matriculated in the
School of Pharmacy in the Fall of 1Q23, and
has been with us ever since. Hodges pos-
sesses those characteristics that distinguish a
gentleman. In addition he is slow to make
his decisions, but when the conclusion is once
reached, it is absolutely final His chief
ambition after leaving here is to become a
noted man in the field of Pharmacy. We
are sure he will, from the record he has set
up here

As Hodges is about to begin a long jour-
ney through the professional world, we wish
him much success in all his undertakings and
that the friends he will make later will be as
numerous as the ones he leaves.
