Don Carl Ross, LL.B.

Sacramento, Kentucky

Henry Clay Law Society; Patterson, Critic (4); Democratic Club; Class Baseball (3); West Kentucky State Normal School Club.

Ross has been mistaken for a barkeeper, but don't judge a book by its cover. He is one of the hottest lawyers in the Law College. Light of hair, blue of eyes, big in stature—Oh, ladies, be careful and don't get killed in the rush. He has often said he wished he lived in the land where they beat women. But that is all punk; we know for a fact that "Heavy" has a "cookie” back home.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
