MARY ALICE DILL – – opened her eyes April 9th, in Detroit. She likes to travel, enjoys good music and corny jokes. She dislikes would-be-glamour girls.

SNOOPER: Reflections in the Night – – Nice to see that last years graduates return occasionally to Mar-Ken.  The place seems a little strange minus Barbara Kent, King Deats and others. Well I won’t feel too blue, we still have Mary Alice Dill, Bill Johnson and many others.

Her favorite sport is swimming and her favorite color is blue. The hobby of this gorgeous creature is giving parties (well, well). Her ambition is a bicycle trip through Connecticut.
•SNOOPER: Such Mar-Ken luminaries as Mary Alice Dill, Bill Johnston, June Carlson, the Machs, and Diana Patterson were seen chasing one very small turkey for the senior Halloween party – – your reporter hears tell fun was had by all but the turkey.

From the Mar-Ken 1941 Yearbook, as a Senior:
Mary Alice Dill. This gal, besides having a grand personality, is the modest possessor of a very lovely singing voice, but claims that she’d rather do professional modeling. She’s mad — about parties and people.
