Title

Mary Delia Smith

Description

MARY DELIA SMITH
APPLICANT FOR B. A. DEGREE
"Not over serious, nor too gay, but a rare good pal."
Business Manager of Messenger, 1914-'15; Literary Editor for SPIDER,
1914-'15; Secretary John Marshall Club, 1914-'1 5.

TO LOOK upon Mary Delia now and see the dignified Senior who answers
to that name, you would never think she was such a pickle in days gone
by. But as she herself says, "dem's de facts." Who has not heard one of
her numerous reminiscences which always begin, "Oh, Smither, don't you remem­ber
what happened in Lab. one day when we were 'Rats'?" To the Senior Class
this sentence is a signal to seek a place of safety somewhere out of hearing, for Miss
Gay affirms that she went to sleep one night at about twelve o'clock and left the
two still revelling in scrapes that had happened in '11-'12, and that when she
awoke at about six in the morning they were still talking about those class base­ball
games. However, they both deny it emphatically. All joking aside, Mary
Delia is a good one with whom to study, to play, to go to see Grayce Scott, and,
in truth, to have as a friend.
