Virgil, the silver-tongued orator, the boy orator of the Pennyrile, whose utterances will linger about us as the perfume of roses. None the less flowery was the path of his triumphial procession from his undaunted loyalty to his Freshman fellows to their honored leadership in his Senior year. The friend of the Old Guard, yet the only unanimous Class President in the history of the university. As an unequalled politician, he must be referred to as a diplomat of no mean ability. The very reincarnation of Jeffersonian democracy and Kentuckian eloquence, Virgil must be considered an heirloom of the glorious past. With a deep insight and admiration for the law, he is ever independent and fearless. Long live the President!
