Blair is of the more serious type Calm
mastery is the ke\Tiote of his personality
Never has the writer seen him ruffled or
excited o\er anything. When his projects
have met adversity, philosophy, and not
"cuss words," has been his rejoinder. We
expect this trait to go far toward making him
successful in the cotton-mill business — his
chosen field — which v.e confidenth- feel he
will be. Good luck. Blair, and may you turn
all the wheels of industry you want

POINDY" spent his childhood days among
the hills of K4acon County, playing with
the wildcats at hide-and-seek. He entered
the University in the Fall of iqiq, and during
the six years that have followed, he has made
a brilliant record which insures him a perma-
nent place in Carolina's Hall of Fame.

He was chosen four times for the myth-
ical all-State team, three times for the all-
South .Atlantic, and once for the all-Southern.
Although he also distinguished himself in
wrestling and track, his athletic activities did
not interfere with his studies, since he barely
missed Phi Beta Kappa in the A.B. School and
has averaged better than a "B" in his three
years in the Law School. He finished his
high-school work in three years, and seven
years of College work in six. All this added
to the fact that he has worked his way through
the University, succeeds in making him stand
out as a man among men.

THE pages of history are replete with the
great deeds of little men, such as Napo-
leon, etc.. and strange enough it seems that
always they manage to accomplish more than
anyone else. Every locality has its big little
men, and so has Chapel Hill. Of this elect
group, none is more prominent than Jimmie
Poole.

Ever since J . Wychc stepped on this
campus, he has been a brilliant figure of
accomplishments, and particularly has he
disproved the belief that only men of large
stature are fitted for athletic teams. Last
year, he was first substitute on the Southern
Championship Basketball Team, and did very
creditable work ; this season, when Captain
lack Cobb was sent to the hospital. Poole
took his place at forward and starred, being
the high-point scorer in his role as a regular.
Characteristic of all big little men. Poole
did not shirk his scholastic duties in the face
of campus honors, and graduation finds him
a good student. His genial manner and over-
abundance of energy have combined to make
him popularly prominent, and there are many
who will regret his absence next year.

EVERY once in a while we find a man who
dares to do his own thinking, to stand on
his own intellectual pedestal, "four-square to
all the winds that blow " Such a man is
"Postum " For. after all. "there's a reason "
"Why should 1 be shackled by the cot-

subjection, when a mere breath of intellectual
effort will scatter them to the skies''" asks he.
We admire such a man. The world does.
Without the faintest trace of brass-band dis-
play, but with a quiet dignity that has won
for him an abiding place in the hearts of his
carefully-chosen friends. "Postum" in his

College more than a book education.

"Postum" reads much, studies just

ambition to become a writer in the future,
takes life philosophically, and with not too
much cynicism. And. when you see an
essay, story, or poem with his name on it.

Since his Sophomore year, John has
passed four courses a quarter with the great-

was seriously considering becoming an English
professor, but now he intends to become the
junior member of his father's law firm. His
ability to distinguish right from wrong, in-
sures for him a brilliant future and he will be
a valuable addition to the North Carolina Bar.

His neatness of appearance, calm, easy
and dignified manner, and his sincerity have
made his appearance at all social functions a
necessity. It is said that he is one of the
most popular \oung men with the Co-eds,
and appearances seem to indicate that that

JOHN does not have a nickname. When
he came down here as a Freshman we tried
to think of some appropriate campus appella-
tion. Someone suggested "Red." We sub-
mitted the proposed title to John's considera-
tion. He positively refused any such name,
because according to him his hair was auburn,
tar from being red.

After all, we could not improve on his
name. John is a mighty common name, but
it fits him to a T. He is just good old John
and if there is anything you want him to do
for you, he is always "Johnnie on the spot "

Ever since Methuselah was graduated
from College, there has been a tradition that
four years are required to get the coveted
sheepskin. John has disregarded all age-old
customs and is showing us how to graduate
in three years. He says that the secret in
doing that stunt is knowing when to work
and when to play That may be true, but
judging from the constant flow of dainty,
perfumed letters bearing the Bessemer City
postmark, we believe that he is getting divine
inspiration from a feminine source,

John is going into Medicine. For us.
the thought of those anatomy quizzes would
give us a nightmare John does not even
give them a passing thought He made a
two-base hit off of 'Froggy" Wilson and a

To him the medical profession will be a cinch.

ROBBINS comes from North Carolina's

fact; he cares little for tradition. Fame is at
a discount with this MAN; he aspires honor.
He came to U. N, C. with grim determination
to acquire knowledge; he has succeeded, but
who can accurately foretell a man's future
when he has an undying attraction to the
opposite sex'' A little girl somewhere in the
Piedmont region of North Carolina has caused
him to lose desire for travel, and replace it
with more homely aspirations.

Here's a wager that "J. R.," e\en in
later years, will still possess those wonderful
attributes of a loyal friend and a true Caro-

known to us as "Robbie; " a thoroughbred

realization of the hidden meaning in the
statement, "Ain't friends great !"

This two-legged animal is far from being
a "mollycoddle, " instead he follows the policy
of playing enough to keep physical as well as
mental machinery in good condition. In
fact, when he enters the squared circle, his
opponent's charm of the skin you love to
touch is about as valuable an asset as a peg
leg in a forest fire.

He tells us that he is going to California,

THIS handsome lad has started a search
for the fountain of youth. Whether he
finds in it the colloidal dispersion system, a
strong antitoxin, or the active principle of
digitalis, remains to be seen.

He is the youngest member of the class
and one of the best. His Scotch blood unfor-

Scotchman are good substitutes. Dancing
and music lure him from anatomical relations,
bacterial characteristics, and alkaloidal doses.
He has no sympathy for the lack of rhythm
and time displayed by the dance of the bacil-
lus typhosis.

The heart is the chief organ of oscillation
and is subject to many infections. To "Don,"
this organ is the seat of many affections, and
the agents which affect him most acutely are
the more deadly members of the sex, Kfedi-

Though the maids of Salisbury were for-
gotten in the cruel task of achieving success
in Medicine, not so were those of other cities,

Shrine of Venus in none other than the City
of Industry. And the results of his activities
there won for him the title of "sheik." Like
the sailor with his sweetheart in every port,
Sheiky has a girl in every town from here to

comes only with hard work and a lasting de\'0-
