TO write up Gurney Talmage Mitchell in a
deserving and comprehensi\'e manner
would require more latitude than that allowed
by this space. We suggest the character of
the man when we say that he is one who has
very definite aims in life and who directs all
energy toward realizing those aims

iMitch hales from up-State, about Jen-
nings He came to Carolina after completing
the four-year course at Mars Hill in two and
one half years. His work during two years in
Pre-Medical School and two years in the
Medical School has been of consistent excel-
lence He has found time for occasional
social engagements in spite of his mania for
studying. We find him a man of well-bal-
anced mental capacities, of companionable
temperament, and of sincerity in his associa-
tions with others His mental attitude be-
speaks success, and his classmates and friends
share his confidence as to his future in his
chosen profession.

JL'ST uhat George expects to take up to
his life \\ork we have been unable to ascer-
tain, but whatever it is. we feel sure that suc-
cess will crown his efforts He is one of those
unassuming men who would rather show you
his virtues than tell you of them. He has not
sought honors upon the campus, but has been
content with being one of its good citizens,
and these alter all give stability and genuine
character to our campus life.

The same jovial personality and the
same strength of character which ha\e won
tor him the respect and esteem of his fellows
here at Carolina will, we predict, cause the
world outside to recognize him as a real man

UPON first sight, this gentleman impresses
one as an illustrious mountaineer; but as
a matter of fact, he is merely a man of the
foothills — geographically speaking, of course.
In reality he is an intellectual giant; a moun-
taineer with aesthetic tastes, having fully
read such things as "Marlowe s Complete
Works." and our most modem literary attain-
ments — "True Story" and the like.

Throughout his College career. Moose
has shown exceptional ability on class, and his
good work is due to some miraculous phenom-
enon, for he was never caught pondering o\er
any problem involving preparation of a lesson.

He is known to his friends as "Bull";
and he has such traits as those which entitle
him to a happy farewell and a good-luck
toast from us all.

WE are grateful to Flora MacDonald for
sending the Class of 1Q25 one of her
Faculty, for if ideals can be transferred wc
are the gainers.

She is a rare composite of a high degree
of inherent ability, excellent training, sincere
and lovable character, and gentleness and
refinement of manner.

The fact that she was never known to
cut but one class and never has known the
sensation of receiving anything less than an
"A, " is proof positive that she early learned
the laws of habit formation

WE all know him as just "Morrison. "
Although he has not been an outstanding
figure in campus activities, he has not failed
to develop the physical as well as the mental
side of his life, being a persistent candidate
for the wrestling team. We all know Morri-
son as a quiet, hard-working fellow for whom
the "Pick" has little attraction. The only
thing that can lure him away from his studies
is a date with a pretty girl, and he never fails
to win the favor of the fair sex, lor he has a
good line and plenty of experience

.Although Morrison is the relative of an
ex-governor, he does not cast longing eyes
toward that position, for, as he puts it, he
wants "a job which allows him to start at the
bottom with an executive position in view."
The company that gets him is lucky, for he is
well prepared for his career. So here's hoping
you future success in your future life, old chap.

TOMMY" started his battle against Igno-

School, located in the foothills of the Old
North State. In the midst of all. he was
called by Uncle Sam to help hold the Hun.

He has had the good fortune of learning
many valuable lessons in the "L'niversity of
Hard Knocks" before coming to Carolina.
Chemistry and Zoology had the strongest
attraction for him as an academic student.
■And like all men preparing to enter Medicine,
he was unable to enjoy his dinner of French,
German and Science for fear of missing the
dessert — Medicine .

He has made a good medical student — a
consistent, persevering and continual worker
who always gets there. His outlook on life is
of the right kind. W hen things look discour-
aging, he is not of the type to sing the old

HERE IS a man who is as much entitled to
the distinction of being called unique as
anyone that we know. No one else can answer
to quite as many nicknames He has no peer
as a reckless yet skilled driver. Theodore
Roberts is not in his class as a cigar-wielder.
His laugh — William James himself could not
explain, and we are certain that no member of
the legislature could be more individualistic
in tying his necktie. These are only a few
of the things that make this gentleman one of
the rarest and most unusual members of the
Class of '25

Most of his work as a student has been
in the field of the ologies Being fully con-
vinced that "we are what we are. largely
because of where we arc. and that "we are
all riding on the omnibuses along with our
ancestors. "he has passed all of Collier Cobb's
courses without a hitch.

Withal, Moye is a genuine good fellow;
attending strictly to his own business, faith-
ful to his friends, a regular good sport, and

HE came to us from Trinity, and cer-
tainly the change has been a good one
for us We have learned to know him as
"Mack " He is a gentleman and a scholar
of no mean worth.

Osier has said that imperturbility is a
cardinal virtue characteristic of a medical
man; certainly, it is a cardinal virtue in the
surgeon. "Mack' has not had the trouble of
acquiring this. He is a diligent worker, not
easily discouraged, and looks always on the
bright side of life. He loves Medicine, and
seeks earnestly to find the truth. From the
embryonic stage he bids fair to develop into
one of the best physicians.

To this follower ol the Hippocratic creed
we can truthfully say that his friendship has
the quality of good wine — true, sincere, and
durably satisfying.

SPEEDY" is. without doubt, the smartest
man in the Med. Class — when it comes to
the ladies. It is rumored that he can see a
woman farther away than any man on the
campus. Besides being a devil with the
ladies, he wades through the medical curric-
ulum as though he were still in the pre-med
ranks, and Dr Ikey's courses don't seem to
worry him at all.

One may wonder at his nickname. If
they could have become acquainted with his
activities during two Summer Schools at
Carolina, as well as his present interest at a
feminine habitat in Greensboro, there would
be no further worry. Cullen has been blest
with a winning smile and a disposition that
radiates cheerfulness and geniality. These
qualities, backed by his sincerity, will make
tor him friends where\er he mav go.

MAC" has been so busy since he came to
Carolina that he has not had any time
to spend in collecting honors Although he
has been with us only four years, he has fin-
ished one year of Medicine in addition to his
A.B,. and that is not the half of it. He is one
of those lucky fellows who is gifted with a
marvelous capacity for making money and.
like the true Scotchman that he is, for saving
it. Not only has he worked his own way
through but he has furnished work for many
of his fellow students who would have had it
hard without "\4ac's" assistance. One would
not expect a man as busy as he to spend much
time studying; nevertheless, he is one of the
best students in our class. He does his work
thoroughly, quickly, and with a degree of
facility which is amazing. Everyone thinks
that high finance missed a good man when
the medical profession called him, but all are
agreed that he is bound to succeed equally as
well there if he carries out into life with him
the same capacity for work and the same
optimistic, cheerful spirit he has shown here.

SANDY" is a member of that swift quintet
which succeeded admirably in upholding
the record which Carolina has established, and
helping the basketball team of 1025 in win-
ning once more the Southern Championship.

But besides his pre-eminence in the
major sport, he has a hobby — not the usual
cross-word-puzzle craze, but a noble game —
the game of horseshoes; the modern equiva-
lent of the noble pastime of quoits, played by
the men of antiquity. At this he is a shark,
and if the plan of Intercollegiate horseshoe
pitching contests is carried out, we believe
that he and Sprat Cobb will win the cham-
pionship over all competitors.

He has already shown his judgment by
leaving Davidson after two years, and gracing
Carolina with his presence, where he has
shone socially. He will undoubtedly meet
with success in knocking up against the cold,

athletic fame has followed him

WHEN a man has a physiognomy suitable

We have heard that he is quiet and per-

the football field; we've seen him do that
same thing in the Gym at Grail Dances, and
can vouch lor his great strength and skill. He
is one of the products of the Chapel Hill High

excellent characteristics.

THIS young man is particularly hard to
write up, because being unusual, he re-
quires a write-up that differs from the usual
order of things. Nevertheless, here goes:

"Mac, " as he is called by all who know
him, is an unusually fast worker in all he
undertakes. In laboratory he is always the
first to finish and. contrary to the proverbial
theory, he does his work well. So well in
fact, that he was chosen by Professor Kyser
to do research work in Saponification and

"Mac " is studying Pharmacy so that he
may return to Charlotte from whence he
came and make his hometown proud of its
son by opening an elaborate pharmacy. We
are sure that he will succeed in this, espe-
cially if "V. 'V." inspires him. This is the
only reference we are allowed to make con-
cerning his "affaires d'amour "

Suffice it to say that he has been success-
ful here and that our best wishes for his con-
tinued success accompany him at the parting
of our ways. In the hearts ot the Class of
1925 there will always be one spot reserved
for "Mac."

real worker. Several years ago he decided
that he would add renown to the name of his

Stacy is a good student ; popular not

with the fairer sex as well. Although he is
not egotistical, he spends most of his time
minding his own business, the balance being
divided among the many harmless pleasures
to which Carolina students are addicted.

is, if she is successful in keeping him. W e
wish for him a long and prosperous career.

HE was known as Edward in Henderson-
ville, but "Pat," it seemed to the dwellers
of Mary Anne Smith, was far more appro-
priate. So the cognomen of "Pat " was given
to him, and "Pat " it has remained ever since.
His aspirations during his Freshman year
were noble, among them being the hope for a
Phi Beta Kappa key. And to prove to all
comers that he was sincere in his intentions,
on the wall of his room was a clipping, pro-
claiming to the world in general and to his
associates in particular that Edward Patter-
son of Hendersonxille had made the Honor
Roll during his first term at the University.

Fortunately, however, the next term saw
"Pat" with new ideas He decided that the
"gentleman's grade," C, was all he wanted,
and this decision probably kept him from
becoming a "bookworm" and made him the
happy-go-lucky fellow he is today .And. in
spite of week-end trips, parties and dances, he
has no trouble at all in keeping up this
