Cherryville. N C.

Degree: AB

Age: 2;

PALT^ Henry Huss, more ^^•idely known
by the name of "Monk." hails from the
hills of Western North Carolina. Cherryville,
his hometov^Ti boasts of being the highest
point between the mountains and the sea.
We would say the same of "Monk's" friends
here on the campus. He has as many or
more than any boy here.

"Monk" has chosen teaching as his pro-
fession, and we are sure that he will succeed.
Realizing that to succeed, one must know the
assistants in one's field, "Monk" has spent
several summers of research here at Carolina,
making such acquaintances. But one tair
damsel won his heart and now the girl back
home is out of luck

"Monk's" apparent philosophy of life is
a good one. He works when he works and
plays when he plays. There is always a
"Saturday E\ening Post" rolled and ready
for use after the game, and "Monk " is one
of the users, the most of the time

If in the future years we could be so
lucky as to chance upon Prof Huss as he
expounds to his eager students the knowledge
which he has gained in his four full years of
work here, we would find that he had not lost
his power to make and hold friends as in
days of yore.

Degree: BS. Medicine

Age- 26

FOR many years, "J. O.". as he is known
among the University students, has been
studying Biology, Physics and Chemistry
with his wagon hitched to the star of an M.D.
On entering Medicine he found many
things to interest him. and he is always ready
to discuss them. We ha\'e dubbed him
"Grandpa," but that name is slightly mis-
placed when we think of this dashing young
medical student. He is a Tar Heel, but his
home is in Virginia, and we have reason to
believe that a great deal of him is in Georgia.
Everyone goes to "Grandpa," for conso-
lation and advice. He seems to have had
lots of experience, and not only does he profit
by it but he is willing to impart the benefit
of it to his fellow men. Gentleness is his
chief trait, and by some he has been called
the most polite man in town. Dr. Haizlip
will always be a fa\-orite, and certainly we
have with us another good old-fashioned
familv doctor in the making.

HUSSEY left Gulford in '17 to answer the
call to arms. When the war was over
he entered the teaching profession. After
following this awhile he decided to join the
business world, so he entered the School of
Commerce at LJ. N. C.

Hussey is quiet and industrious. He
can always be found in his room or in Dr.
Zimmerman's Commerce A Laboratory. When
his many friends want advice they always
know he is ready to help them.

Within the next few years we expect to
see him holding a seat on the New York
Stock Exchange.

INSPIRATION and hard work have made

1 his success. The greatest men in history
ha\e been inspired by women and Rudolph
is no exception to the rule. When he came to
Carolina he left his heart with a fair lady
back in New Bern. That she has been an
excellent inspiration is evident from the suc-
cess he has made.

It is a significant fact that no one before
him has made such a stellar success in foot-
ball and at the same time finished the Elec-
trical Engineering course in four years It
becomes still more striking when we con-
sider his grades which rate him as above the
a\erage student. In his Junior year he was
initiated into the Honorary Electrical Fra-
ternity of Phi Zcta Nu,

Here wc ha\'e a rare combination: an
inspired athlete and student who has won
success over the long trail of hard work It
is safe to believe that the same driving spirit
will carry him to the top in his chosen pro-

UPON first starting to Carolina, Jenks
stopped in Raleigh and was so impressed
with the place that he matriculated at N. C
State. However, he soon conceived the idea
that business was a better vocation than
engineering and immediately embarked for
the University's School of Commerce In
this he has proved himself a capable student
in all his work including Business Law Yet
he does not allow his studies to curb his
pleasure, as he is alwa\ s ready to aid in anv
undertaking for amusement

Summer Schools have proved to be for-
tunate things for him for last summer saw
him begin the studies that ended in matri-

Possessing a winning personality- and
having shoMTi good judgment in selecting a
life mate — we are certain that Jenks will
attain success.

OLD Pap" has been in this world a long
time We mean that he went to France
when he was a boy and came back a man
with an enviable war record.

He has been, during his four years with
us. a good worker, a good fellow, a good
track man and a daily gym attendant. To
know "Pap" is a real experience, and an
hour spent with him is a stimulating recrea-
tion. He is a man always to be depended
upon. He will loan his money. He will
always do the thing he thinks right; and all
the world can't mo\ e him.

His seriousness of purpose has made him
modest That modesty has prevented him
Irom paying much attention to the ladies.
Yet he does really like them. They fall for
his good looks, but he is so bashful that he
tells them to "sit on their hands if they are
cold " and the "Lord loves them."

But when all is said and done. "Old
Pap" will be remembered by his friends as
the "noblest Roman of them all "

WHEN Governor Brewster of Maine came
to Chapel Hill last fall to whitewash the
GOP., it naturally fell to the lot of Charlie
Jonas to introduce the speaker, for "Red" is
the recognized leader of the small but faithful
band of Republicans in our midst. Jonas is
gifted with a remarkably pleasing and con-
\incing delivery and a genius for thinking on
his feet which has made him one of the pillars
of the Di Society and has also won for him
his "N. C." in debate. In the class room he
has almost persistently maintained honor-
roll standing, though missing Phi Beta
Kappa Turning to the worth-while things.
"C, R. has been one of Coach Bob s "never-
say-dies" who are willing to forsake necessi-
ties of life, such as cigarettes and chocolate
candy, for Carolina's glory on the cinderpath.
and he can wear his monogram as proudly as
any. Jonas has a host of friends; in fact, all
are friends, and no one deserves them more
than he. We hereby prophesy for "Red" a
brilliant success in the Legal world (for we
understand that is the kind of career he is
planning to take up), and if, perchance, there
should e\er be a swing in the political pen-
dulum of the Old North State —

* Z X.

BEHOLD' Here IT is. so. Fair Reader,
look no more. You behold in "Red
the incarnation of Saint and Devil. Sage and
Jester. Student, Thinker, and an all-round
good fellow.

His name, which he wears upon his head,
connotes sheik, but his sheikish tendencies
were almost smothered by the famous Dag-
gett-Lear-Hoefer combination. However, such
a formidable trio could not keep "Red" from
many "Picks," Grail Dances and a thorough
appreciation of any profitable amusement
which offered itself.

Whether in the class room, or the Gym,
or in his own sanctum, slinging the male
yearling so skillfully, "Red" is always the
self-possessed gentleman. "Red" says he
will be an Engineer, and he has an enviable
record to back his claims.

Many girls. Summer School, and others,
will mourn his passing into the "cold, cruel
world," where his tenderest and softest in-
stincts will be hardened and tempered in the
fire of experience.

We might add that she has been elected the

THERE is just one "Touchdown" in this
world. He made that touchdown over
the wrong goal; nevertheless, he is no mean
football player, as the teams which have
played the " Ironmen" will testify.

Baseball, however, is his long suit, unless
it is bull sessions. The baseball team would
not be complete without him. Why? Be-
cause by his playing he helps to win. and by
constantly keeping Coach Bill in chewing
tobacco he aids the brain of the power behind
the throne. "Touchdown's first name be-

THERE came a man to us, two years ago,
known as "Peter" Jones. But however
prevalent may be his name, this man "Jones"
is, beyond a doubt, a "Jones" unto himself,
there having been none before like him; nor
can posterity ever reproduce him. Though a
man whose good fortune permits him to be an
esteemed husband and a happy "dad he came
to us with "single" ideas. He has fed the
crying mouths of thousands of hungry football
fans with his samples of Peter's Chocolate —
hence his nickname. To say he is a good busi-
ness man is an injustice to his bulldog tenacity
For to our knowledge he has earned money
here in every conceivable way. Jones has sold
everything in Chapel Hill, from medicated
toothpicks to women s real silk hosiery In
addition to paying his way through the Uni-
\crsity and supporting his wife and babies, he
did excellent scholastic work, just missing Phi
Beta Kappa by the one quintillionth part of a
hair. No man ever learned quite so much
about the personnel and workings of the L'ni-
versity in so short a time as did Jones,

Our friend is now with the Upjohn Com-
pany of New York City, and we sincerely hope
that, as a student in the University of Life,
among his other achievements may also be
these — Health. Wealth, and Fame.

names, weight, knowledge, and experi-
ence It would be decidedly pleonastic to
attempt an analysis of any one of these. Lest
his little amour of last Summer School be for-
gotten, we had better quote him and Kipling
in the line, "I learned about women from her "
His fancy alternates between this Lorelie and
the present-day drama. He will, we are afraid,
never forgive our own Dr. .Archibald Hender-
son for overlooking the famous Sir J. M.
Barrie in his treatise. The Changing Drama

When "Bus" condensed his signature to
John William E. Joyner, we dared hope that
he would even give up ice cream and become
one of us again. His anticipated trip to
Europe during Easter will complicate matters
further, for even Mr. Volstead himself couldnt
keep him from the Deutche Bier with which he
is already familiar

If Judge Landisdoesn t hear his voice and
make him a big league umpire, wc are sure to
hear ol "Bus accomplishing some worth-
while thing right here in North Carolina a
little later. We wish you "bon voyage" in the
world, "Bus. "

TO graduate in three years, go out for

extensively is not a small accomplishment.
Yet " Don " Koonce has done those things and
barely missed Phi Beta Kappa with all that.
He entered the University with the Class of

in itself a notable feat in these days of all
stiff and no pud courses.

"Don" has always managed with but
little obvious effort to keep well in front of
the requirements of his curriculum. As one
of the social dogs, his activities have not only
been made manifest in Chapel Hill but also
in other places. But few week-ends have

any organization at Carolina. Anyone seek-

His frequent visits to the postoffice leave

not the "mail is up."

As a Pharmacist. Kunkle should make a

toward that duty as he has to the preceding
ones. Here's hoping he will.
