    " A sunny temper gilds the edge of life's blackest cloud." -Guthrie
William Wohlsen Behrens, who came to us from the Mary Street Grammar School, is a member of the Commercial German Section. "Bill" is something of an all-round athlete. He first won his numerals in the track team in his Freshman year, and has been a prominent player on the soccer team for three years. He won his L on this team in his Senior year. "Bill" is very well liked by the members of his class, is a sociable fellow, and a strong supporter of his Vaterland. He is generally conspicuous by his absence at roll call, but arrives in time to disturb the first class by his sleepy entrance. After graduation he expects to be a bookkeeper.

    "He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one ;
    Exceeding wise, fair spoken, and persuading."

    "For even though vanquished, he would still argue."
Adam Beittel, otherwise "Spib", is one of the smallest members of the class, but what he lacks in physical stature he has more than made up for in mental ability. He is without doubt one of the brightest students ever graduated from the High School, and has easily secured the Valedictory. "Spib" is one of the speed kings in typewriting and shorthand, and has one of the neatest and most complete physics notebooks in the class. He is musically inclined and plays a violin in the orchestra. Adam was one of the charter members of the Red and Black Literary Society and one of the best debaters and speakersin the Organization.
