John Fletcher Myers came from Chestnut Street School and took up the Classical Course. John is a very quiet boy and has taken very little part in class affairs. Perhaps he has been overlooked in the selection of committees because he is so quiet, but when he was made chairman of the Senior Banquet Committee he performed his duties in a very capable manner. John was a very active member of the Red and Black Literary Society. He expects to enter Franklin and Marshall in the fall.
