Scripps college student Dawn Gardner holding her head with her face with her hands, while another student (seated directly behind) holds her head. Typed on verso - "THE MID-YEAR LOOK AT U.S. COLLEGES THIS WEEK. The mid-year look breaks out on millions of faces on U.S. campuses on the eve of mid-year exams. Dawn Gardner, Scripps College junior, faced the ordeal by pen with a grim, withdrawn look, not as frantic as that on the faces of novice freshman, but tattling her anxiety to keep up her grades in the tradition of a veteran student who has written two previous mid-years. Like the goddess Siva, she thought with all four hands."
