Statistics for 1912-13 Reveals Many Notables and They Were Honored at Chapel Friday.
Valuable Books Gifts
The chapel services Friday were truly for the student body, and the occasion was one which comes but once a year. It showed the final results of a year's work and the successful ones are more worthy to be published as winners of college honors as are many of the celebrities who appear in these columns.
The appearance of certain names in the lists reveals the truth of the statement of President Harris that the man or woman who is the best in scholarship is more likely to be the most active and efficient in college affairs.
Of those who graduated with highest honors into the junior class Alexander Arragon is the one who shows a card without a blemish. Howard C. Greer, graduating into the sophomore class, also received everything of "A" grade throughout the year.
The six men and the six women receiving the highest grades on graduation from the freshmen class were called to the front by Dean Holgate and presented with valuable books as a sort of reward for their efforts. The six highest men are Howard C. Greer, Fanrose Siddill, Dean Traxler, James Grantham, Phillip Peterson and William Elmer. The women are Ruth FitzSimons, Marjorie Judson, Zohanna Zander, Gertrude Halsusha, Mertie Griner and Miss Cozart.
