    Of fountain in a noonday grove."-Wordsworth
Richard Anthony Tragresser came from St. Anthony's Parochial School. He is quite small and is not heard very much, but he is generally right on the job when anything is to be done. "Ritty" took one of the prizes in the NEWS and is suspected of writing moving picture stories. We all wondered why he took so much interest in Geology, but we found out since that he Intends to manage a big farm some day. He is a member of the . General Latin Section.

    "Science was his daily life."-Pope
    "Love seldom haunts the breast where learning lies."
John Henry Widmyer, a graduate from Lemon Street School, is one of our great electricians. He has done some engineering along this line while a Senior, and was the only good "Electrical Information Bureau" in school. The chief literary works which he has produced are some scientific stories in the NEWS. These were very interesting articles, showing a great knowledge and understanding of his subject. He was the Assistant Editor of the NEWS in which position he has been one of the most faithful members of the Staff, always ready to capably assist both the Editor and the Business Manager in their duties. Next year he will enter Lehigh, where we feel sure he will attain merited success.
