  1. Snob

    ingridrichter:

    When commoners registered for Cambridge University it was necessary for them to place sine nobilitate, without nobility, after their names.  This was shortened to s. nob. and soon became “snob,” a pretender to position.

  3. Anita Stewart
This actress of the silent film era, unlike many leading beauties, was not driven out of the “talkies” due to her rough voice, but she did not stay in the film business after fully-voiced movies became commonplace.
Instead, she went into radio-plays for several years, and retired.
