Effie M. Bill, alias "Billy," is our salutatorian and that's nothing against her either. She is droll of answer, but always gets there eventually. "I think so,---yes."
Frederic D. Burgess answers to the name of "Fritz," Senior Vice-President, 1916; basket ball, 1914-1915, 1915-1916; tennis manager, 1915-1916; base ball, 1916; first and second Senior plays. "You crumb!"
Gladys R. Clark, they call "Glad." That expresses it exactly. She is an authority on decorations, both for persons and dance halls. First Senior play. "I should say not!"
"Egg," when cracked, reveals Egbert Farrell, who is custodian of the Senior funds - also of "Peg" Settle. First and second Senior plays; track, 1914. "I forgot."
Esther Cull, when acting natural is "Shrimp." She is "quiet, unassuming - sweet and pretty as a rose - everything that a real lady should be!" Favorite expression - smiling
D. Clinton Gould, in a broader sense is called "Jelly." Always ready with a smile (except when awakened too early). First and second Senior plays; prize-speaking contest, 1916. "Wait foh dat pole horse."
"Stub" Fischer's first name is really Lavangie. When you see her temper rising, it's time to duck. "Aw gwan!"
When we say, "Rummy," we mean Earl Harris. He is rather quiet, except when a good joke is needed. "Match you a nickel."
"Fish," when out of water, is Emily C. Fisher. She is ready for anything you suggest. A "better scout" would be hard to find. "My word!"
"Hymerson," signed the hotel register in Washington, Emerson Hyman. Who knows what secrets are held in that great mind? "Huh?" (doubtfully)
Emma Bernice Garlock signs her notes M. E., and it doesn't mean Methodist Episcopal. She is one of Newark High School's greatest gigglers. "Oh help!"
"Horse," drives under the license of Fletcher H. Miller. He loves the ladies as a bird likes salt on its tail. He hasn't much to say except when someone says "fish" or "hunt." Then he shines like a tin can. President of Class of 1916 in Junior year; basket ball, 1914-1915, 1915-1916; first Senior play; custodian of the High School flag, 1915-16. (After a brilliant history recitation - "Aw I dunno!")
Lurana G. Martin, taking the part of "Julie" is a trim little lass, not heard unless called upon. Quaint as she is pretty, she is always at hand when needed. Second Senior play. "Now Bob!"
Summer Munn is known to his more intimate friends as "Money." He is one of these Eat-Sleep-and-be-Merry types. "Is that so?"
"Peg," who signs her checks with Margaret H. Settle, is our Class Secretary. She is an inspiration for one who wants to study. One could not ask for a better friend. First and second Senior plays. "Scuse I!"
Roy W. Robinson's stage name is "Robbie." Vice-President of Class of 1916 in Junior year; basket ball, 1913-1914; captain, 1914-1915; track, 1914; tennis, 1915-1916; first and second Senior plays. "Let 'em roll."
That fellow with the curly hair was captain of the 1916 baseball team. "Sandy" also blew in on the 1915-1916 basket ball floor. It says on his diploma, Ernest P. Sanford. "Don't let me hurry you."
Ethel Thomas, a loyal little "Dixie" girl, both in defense of her "Virginia," and in her true Southern hospitality. "So zu sagen."
Frances P. Throop is another one of our bright and shining stars. "Fran," is one of those people who have high standings and good times combined; second senior play. "Oh, hen!"
Paul H. Stevens is more commonly known as "Steve." Senior President 1916; track, 1914; manager of basket ball team, 1914-1915; and played 1915-1916 also; first and second Senior plays; prize-speaking, 1915. "Will you 'tend to that, please?"
Margaret C. Weinman, when spoken of as other than "Valedictorian," is "Peggy." If you want to know anything, go to her - she is a veritable dictionary. "Whoop!"
Wesley Thompson gets his half fare ticket in short order, or rather trousers. Being of short stay among us, no nickname more handicapping than "Wes" or "Tompy" has been given him. Second Senior play. "Whee!"
Alta Grace Winspear, "A. G." for Short (George), was the wife of poor henpecked Peter Wycombe in the first Senior play. It is a shame to make one with such a kind disposition, play this part. But she carried it off "on high" as she does anaything she attempts. "Oh, he's a worm!"
Walter Sutcliffe, whom we call "Walt," always arrives in time for the party to close. He now performs operations on a chess board, and "his soft gu-tar," but will some day be a noted surgeon. "Aw, now you stop!"
"Bill" will vote under the name of William Winans. If no one else dares to do it, call on Bill. (Better unwritten)
