W. E. Bacon entered college in 1914, thus became a member of the ’19 class, and as such made a splendid record, taking an active part in literary and debating work. Word was received in August that Bacon had been killed in action. This was a severe blow, not only to the members of the nineteen class, but also to the students of the college in general.
