EUGENE MARTIN RACKLEY,
Eugene came to us as a "Smiling Freshman" and his three years'
college work has not lessened his good spirits.
He is quiet and studious and has been pronounced the best operator
in the Class of 1909, He has taken an active part in all the phases of
college life, and by his gentle manners has won many friends.
His loyalty to his class places his service ever at its command.
Bridge work is his 'hobby," and he never complains when asked by
the demonstrator to make a bridge. Owing to his ability as an operator,
we feel sure that he wi'l contribute much to his profession.
He was born at Mount Vernon, Georgia, February 15. 1877.
H. LEONIDAS KEITH.
Lon was born at Keith, North Carolina, February 14, 1883. He
received his early education in the public schools of his town, afterward
going to Raleigh, where he received a business education and then settled
down to the modest role of a corporation bookkeeper. This is the place
he received his first instructions in grafting. From this training, he has
grown quite proficient.
Since his arrival, he has acquainted himself thoroughly with the
ways of the city, readily becoming a member of the Tabernacle Sunday
School and Baraca Class, at the same time attending Segadlo's Dancing
School on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. Naturally one
would conclude this specimen somewhat of a society lion.
Lonny was received at the S. D. C. September 31, 1906. When
relieved of his crate he remarked, I "Kakalate."
Since, he has calculated the Faculty out of his share of the
credits allotted, his landlady out of his board, and now calculates on
grafting a diploma, and becoming an honest, ethical practitioner.
