Mary Lou . ♦ ♦ ♦
Outstanding Athlete Among Girls
If you see a bright light flashing through 211’s door, it’s not a streak
of lightning. It’s not even Superman. . . . It’s Mary Lou Plummer!!
Ah! What a blessed event—THAT March 23,
1931. That’s when Mary Lou was born. At the time,
no one knew that she would be so athletic, but she
is! She has been, during her stay at Junior High,
captain of at least one team every year. She plays
on the school’s basketball and softball teams.
All this very well adds up to Mary Lou’s being pre
sented as an outstanding member of the girls’ physi
cal education department.
But sports aren’t the only things that enter her
mind—No!! She does very well in all her studies.
.She advises Latin, and says that it helps!!
Then, of course, there’s always the male side of
the question. To answer this there’s Rudolph Upton. To hear them talk
ing, you’d think they were “crazy”, but they’re not.
Mary Lou has a very good personality and is quite capable of
getting along with people. She has many friends.
And she has as many good qualities as she has friends.
Athletic skill is by no means her only outstanding good quality.
She smiles under all conditions and maintains her good humor
in all situations.
And, besides, she’s a good student!
