FERGUSON HIGH SCHOOL
Let us grow, as we grow older
In past and present value too
Laces and ivory and silk and gold
Need not be new.
Let us grow in strength and vision
As each day rolls along.
And add the wisdom of yesterday
To our melody of song.

BOARD OF EDUCATION OF FERGUSON
An organization which few students realize
the importance of is the Board of Education. Its
members are chosen by the people and belong to'
the school as its legal executives. This.body
discusses with the Superintendent every policy
which is introduced into the management of the
schools. It has charge of the school funds and
provides for the needs of school. It supplies us
with all the necessary incidentals which keep our
buildings clean and comfortable for teachers and
pupils. Without this important group of school
officers it would be impossible to maintain an ef-
fective system of public education.
We are very proud of the fact that this group
has not incurred debts for our school district.
Throughout the period of financial stress for the
past several years our teachers have been paid on
time and the bills paid in full. Only through the
foresight of the Board of Education has this finan-
cial stability been possible.
Our Board of Education does not lose sight of
the fact that the one main function of the school
is to provide for the student. we may disagree with
this Board of many minor points, but it can never
be said that the Board of Education ever favors any
individual interest, local or foreign, or is ever
influenced by political or sectarian organizations.
THE MOTHERS' CLUB
This, the third year of the existence of the
Mothers' Club, under the capable leadership of the
following officers, Mrs. G. B. Reynolds, president,
Mrs. Wesley-Leverich, Vice-president, and Mrs. Eugene
Herrmann, Secretary and Treasurer, has been a very
busy and pleasant one.
Much of the work of the organization is carried
on by the six standing committees: one to look after
the interests of each of the four High School classes,
a House Com ittee, and a Grounds Committee.
Throughout the year the main endeavor of the club
has been to bring a closer relationship between faculty
and parents, and to promote social activities for the
students. An indication qf the support given by the
parents was demonstrated by the unprecedented attend-
ance at a Bridge Party given for the purpose of pro-
viding a Christmas Party for the students, and also
made it possible to have their annual boat excursion in
May, without any difficultyf
There has been a program of many dances given by
the various classes, all of which have been liberally
attended by the parents. As usual, the refreshments
have been furnished and served by the Mothers' Club.
, One of the bright spots of this year's activities
was a night meeting, which was held on December 4.
The attendance was very large, and the club appreciated
the entertainment given by the Dramatic Club.
The officers elected for next year are: Mrs. Chas.
Galt, President, Mrs. John Woodward, Vice-president, and
Mrs. I. T. Popplewell, Secretary and Treasurer. The
club looks forward to a pleasant and busy year under the
leadership of these officers.

U 1aU R
The Mothers' Club sponsored
a dance, April 20, in the school
gymnasium for the benefit of the
Senior'treasury. Unlike other
dances given during the year, many
besides students were invited. All
parents were urged to attend. The
students with permission invited many
of their friends. Aside from the Uout-
sidersu many students came. Thus there
was e good attendance. The student body
again showed how willing it was to co-
operate with Seniors particularly.-
The decoration was of rainbow effedt.
The orchestra pit and the punch stand were
under large arches. The various colors
of the rainbow harmonized with the colors
of the girls' dresses. One watching could
easily see that this dance, as former danc
was a huge success.

ego we, the Seniors, emerged in the
Ferguson High School e number of bewildered boys and ,
girls. We began to walk aimlessly about the halls of
an alreaiy crowded school. As the upperclassmen en-
countered Freshnen every way they turned, those lofty
personages took it upon themselves to teach these in-
significant people just where they belonged. Within
a few days the school appeared normal again. The Fresh-
men, being eager to learn, quickly grasped the idea of
where to run from where. We, as a class, showed an over-
whelming enthusiasm for all school activities and before
long, we were completely adjusted to high school life.
During this year, our snonsors were Miss Claus, and Miss
Hofriehter. Ou: iistinguishei officers were: Joe Tut-
hill, Presiientg Bunny Gregory, Vice Presidentg and Curtis
Owen, Secretary Treasurer.
We considered ourselves very fortunate when Miss Claus
told us she L11
rjreed to be our sponsor for another year.
Because of the large number of people in the class, the
boys and girls hai separate home rooms and seperate class
officers. Mr, Westfpll was sponsor of the boys in their

will ever remember its sponsors, Miss
Hofriehter, for their cooperation in pre-

orler to finance this gala affair it was necessary to raise
that elusive medium of exchange called money. Being very
industrious people, we lost no time to be the initial class

one could obtain the most delicious candy ever sold from

and we became hosts to our departing school chums. After
having seen 'When Ladies Heet', at the Shubert-Rialto, we
hurried to the Park Plaza where we had su per and danced
to the enchanting music of Gy. 01ian's orchestra. During
this prominent year we chose for our class officers!
Curtis Owen, Presidentg Winifred Judy, Vice President:
Gilbert Reynolds, Treasurer: Anna Uhle, Secretary.
Now, the senior year - the realization of our dreams!
It is during this year that we probably best appreciate
high school life. When we realize that there are just a
few months before we shall be 'grads', we try to do our
best so that those who come after may look to our class for
an example. We endeavor to unite even more now than before
to make our dance and other activities successful accomplish-
ment S 0
For our officers during this our last year, we elected.
Joe Tuthill, President: Uany.Alice Skillington, Secretaryg
Charles Grimm, Treasurer: and linifred Judy, Vice President.
The first dance of the year is traditionally given
by the Seniors. As the season when we give the dance is
autumn, it was most appropriate that we use an autumn setting
in the style of decoration. Will any of us ever forget the
leaf excursions we took in order to carry out this scheme?
However, judging from congratulations, we were amply re-
warded for our efforts.
Until one is a Senior there is no realization of the
versatility of one's thoughts and works. Aside from the
dance the first part of the year, this class is occupied
with the choosing of class colors, flowers and motto, and
with the preparation of material for the 'Crest' - the
school annual - edited by the senior class. For our colors
we have chosen burgandy and gold. Talisman rose for the
flowers, and after much discussion 'Forward by strength
and courage' for the motto.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
We '51-'32 Freshmen sailed into a new port,
active, and desirous of seeing uwhat made the wheels
go 'roundn. We were the first freshman class to ex-
plore the new domains of the J. M, Vogt High School
and were in troubled waters, as usual, when the Soph-
omores discovered us. The girls gave us a humiliating
but enjoyable party, mush preferable to the boys' re-
ception. The captains of our fortunes during our ini-
tial high school year were Miss Hanke and Mr. Schulze,
who steered us safely around all obstacles. We presen-
ted an enjoyable dance, the setting that of a spring
garden, which was our first big enterprise.
As sophomores, we launched into the deep with some-
what fewer apprehensions than the preceding year. Under
the sagacious captains, Miss Claus and Mr. Westfall, we
began our journey. We showed our true class colors by
having the highest scholastic averages of all classes.
In all activities the sophomores were well represented,
especially in sports and in the operetta, WThe Qpeen's
Guard.W One beautiful spring day the sophomore girls
arrived at school arrayed in all their past finery, for
it was Ukid dayu by someone's proclamation. Toward the
end of the school year we cooperated with the freshmen in
giving a joint dance, attractively decorated as a beach-
garden, with glamorous red and white stripes prevailing.
Again we ventured into new territories, this time as
juniors, confident in ourselves under the title Uupperclass
men.u We came back to school hearty and with full speed
ahead. Our main endeavor centered upon raising money for
the Junior-Senior Prom, which we tackled im ediately. We
started work by having a food sale at the fall volleyball
tournament, at which we practised for our season's sales-
manship of candy. The Junior dance really demonstrated how
deeply immersed we were in candy affairs, for the setting
was a veritable uCandy Land.n Then came the Junior Benefit
Show, a play, WNew Brooms,' presented by the Brown Lyceu
Company of Chicago. During the year we presented several
well-attended afternoon dances. Our leaders this year were
Miss Claus and Miss Hickman, who proved very efficient.
The crowning activity of our junior year, nThe Prom,W we
will do our best to make enjoyable. The class officers of
this year were: George Tuthill, President: Mary Louise Gal
Vice-Presidentg Anno Liise Bangert, Secretary: and Reynold
Carlson, Treasurer. We are now prepared to launch into our
last exploration, and thence, into the great beyond. '
Well, trusty diary, here comes another
big event to your pages. It will soon be
May 29th, the evening of our annual Wprom'.
We are eagerly looking forward to this
dinner dance to be given at the Congress Hotel.
The Juniors are expecting epproxime ely fifty
guests. This annual farewell party is the most
important social event of the school ye r.
As usual, there will be program dances and
others. The Tower Room engaged for this evening
will be decorated in class colors.
The Seniors, having attended the Npronn
of last year, anxiously'await their pleasure of
being invited the guests ofthe Junior Class. The
Juniors, having heard of the unusual occasion of
last year, expectantly look forward to entertain-
ing the Seniors

September 6, 1952, a multitude of more than seventy-five
freshmen filled every available crack and crevice. For the
first few days, these perplexed neophytes, arms piled high
with much used text books, were invariably heard to ask,
mWhere do we go next?'
Under the leadership of our presidents, Helen Caldwell
for the girls and Burdette Gemache for the boys, the fresh-
men upheld their portion of the years' activities. Gur
sponsors, Miss Hanke and Mr. Schultz, aspired to have the
rough edges smoothed off by the end of the year. We leave
the results of their efforts to the judgment of the upper

ways and means of high school, we have entered into all of

With the strains of what I consider the prettiest if, FH:

I can strive to give you the intense feeling of admira-

The scene of nPicklesW is laid in Vienna at the
present time during an annual carnival celebrations
Each year Lady Vivian, a beautiful widow, comes to
Schloss Meiningen inn, to seek her daughter who is sup-
posed to be dead. However, Lady Vivian persistently
returns to search for her.
Jonas H. Pennington, weary of his work in America,
comes to Vienna with his daughter, June, in order to
forget that he is president of the Peter Piper Pickles
Company. Imagine his surprise on arriving, when he sees
Peter Piper Pickles advertisements everywhere he looks.
J. Jennison Jones, his most expert advertising agent,
has just arrived!
Wishing to increase his fortune, Kinski, comical
chief of the secret service, plans to find Lady Vivian's
daughter. After a futile, superficial search, he persuades
Louisa, a maid of the inn, to pretend she is the long lost
daughter. However, through Louisa's stupidity, their plans
A band of gypsies under the leadership of Jigo visits
the carnival in hope of marauding the merrymakers.- Jones
proves himself as efficient in loveemaking as in advertis-
ing when he courts Ilona, the supposed daughter of Jigo.
After he observed the friendship between them,
Jigo orders Ilona to lead Jones to the camp so that
he can rob him. Because of her disobedience, Jigo
exiles Ilona from the tribe.
Wishing to reconcile Ilona and Jigo , Lady Vivian,
Pennington, June, Jones, and Arthur Crefont, a young
artist in love with June, accompany Ilona to the gypsy
camp. Because Ilona longs for her unknown mother and
because Lady Vivian grieves for her lost daughter, they
wish before a magic pool to see the faces of each. Though
not yet sure of their relationship, Ilona agrees to live
with Lady Vivian as her daughter. A short while later,
Lady Vivian recognizes a locket of Ilona as the one her
baby wore when she was lost. Thus the relationship of
the two is happily restored. '
Jones, after seeing one of Crefont's paintings, or-
ders several, thereby assuring him'the finances he needs
to marry June.
Since Lady Vivian and Pennington become engaged
shortly after Ilona and Jones' engagement, Pennington and
Jones become father and son, an adjustment which pleases
The success of the operetta may be compared to the
happy ending of the story of WPickles.n Each actor played
his part as well as each character in the story strove for
his own achievement. So did each actor succeed as he tried
The many numbers beautifully danced showed that much
care and training had preceded their exposition. Encores
were not at all infrequent. The singing is also an item
worthy of much note. The chorus as well as the principals
thrilled the audience with their song.
The proprietor of the inn and his associates added
much to the success of the operetta with their singing
and dancing. John Crowe, who made the first appearance,
sang the first song. He played the part of a porter.
Hans, played by Charles Grimm, was the proprietor of the
inn. He sang a song of welcome to the American visitors
he was expecting.The parts of Bumski and Rumski, comical
policemen of Vienna,'were played by Gilbert Reynolds and
David Owen. '
The leading parts were taken by Wilda Lewis,
Joe Tuthill, George Tuthill, Harry Sullivan, Anna
Luise Bangert, Curtis Owen, Mary Frances True, Ada
McKee, and George Moloney. Minor parts were played
by Reynold Carlson, Marcella Popnlewell, Duane McCal-
lum, Knowlton Caplan, Preston Knox, and Oliver Greeves.
Between the second and third acts Wilda Lewis,
representing the cast, presented a bouquet of roses to
Miss Badino. These roses represented, besides their love,
a token of appreciation for her efforts and patience in
directing the operetta.
The music played by Betty Rose Skinker and Virginia
Grobengieser, pianists-wlichard Crowe, violinist--George
Barton, drummiste-and Olaf Fuller and Philip Backlin,
trumpeters, added a great deal to the success.
dThe stage was under the direction of Miss Hofriehter
assisted by Paul Allmeyer, Harry Sullivan, Dave Owen,
Lawrence Allmeyer, and Billy Zeppenfeld.
The problems of property and business manager were
solved by Knowlton Caplan and Stephen Doss, respectively.
The tickets and programs were handled by Marguerite
Bieler, Alice Sassenrath, Edna Lix, and Vadim Neklutin.

when Miss Badino expressed her satisfaction in the results

This year the Senior Class will present WShirt
Sleeves" as the annual senior play. The play is
being directed by Miss Lucille Hickman and will be
presented near the midfle of May.
WShirt Sleevesu is a domestic cnmedy of the pres-
ent, depicting the financial and domestic upheavals
of a middlefclass American family composed of Mr. and.
Mrs. Franklin Rand and their four children, Donald,
Diana, Theodore, and Esther. The family closely ap-
proaches the aristocracy of which Diana and Julia,
the mother, are very proud.
Donald, the family reactionary, is in love with,
and later in the play marries, Margie Scanlon, who is
opposed by the family because she is the daughter of
a law-breaking father.
Sophisticated Diana has her trunks packed for
college with baggagemen ready to take them when news
comes of the failure of the bank. This means that
the Rands have nothing left except their home, which
is mortgaged, and their furniture, which is subsequent-
ly auctioned to save the house.
As the play progresses, the family passes through
their crises, reacting individually to the disaster
according to their personalities with Ted and Esther,
the fifteen year old twins, showing a true aggressive,
and democratic spirit in contrast to Diana and her mother
who evidence a shell of pretense. When Mr. Rand, with
a certain heroism, again finds work, the shirt sleeve
cycle has once more been completed, and the third genera-
tion begins anew. The play attains a happy ending when
Margie is accepted into the Rand family. '
The comedy is aided by Theodore the Ukidn brother,
and Kitty, the maid, with her sweetheart, Elmer. The
inevitable villain is Richard Crandall, who holds the
mortgage on the Rand home. Diana's sweetheart, Norman
Aldrich, is a conventional young man whose limited fin-
ances make him positively submissive to Diana's whims:

THE HI-Y CLUB
The Hi-Y Club excels th 'previous Hi-Y Clubs of
Ferguson because we have had the pleasure of having
an excellent sponsor, Al Behle, who has worked almost
continuously throughout the year gaining for us liber-
ties whichwe have not before known.
Mr. W. F. Lewis put in charge of us a person, who
being nearer our own age, seemed closer to us than any
other sponsor whom we have known. Mr. Behle so far has
obtained several speakers, and on several occasions has
himself given some very interesting talks that later
ended in very good discussions. The speakers whom he
obtained were: Mr. Zielienske, one of his classmates,
who talked on high school and college athletics. With
the cooperation of Reverend Egger, Mr. Behle was able to
obtain for us Reverend Manta, from New Orleans who gave
a talk on WRace Prejudicen, which was enjoyed by all.
Later Reverend Egger gave a talk which proved to be not
only profitable, but also humorous.
The club tried an interesting experiment this year,
that of having the Hi-Y Club open to every boy who could
gain the friendship of the majority of the members. Be-
cause we have what we thought was a rather intelligent
group of boys, lefidopted what is known as the blackball
system of eliminating members or suggested members from
the club. The blackball rule states that if a member if
blackballed by one or more members of the club, he is auto-
matically dropped. Because many thought this rule a little
too severe, it was changed to three or more blackballs for

THE ANNUAL BOAT TRIP
Once again we don our nautical clothes.
It is time for our annual Wlast get-togethern
before school closes. Boys and girls, strug-
gling with huge lunch baskets, hurry down the
The boat moves majestically from the
shore. It takes a course on one side of the
river and moves along there with m eh grace
and serenity, An exact contrast to the calm-
ness of the boat is the confusion of its oc-
cupants. There is dancing, singing,'lunching,
walking, ruzming, talking and laughing--all
done at once. 'But is it not this tumult that
is the fum?
Toward sunset the excitement wanes and
small groups gather to discuss the day. Empty
baskets and clothing are finally collected, and
those fresh young sailors of the morning depart
from the boat, weary from their play but very
regretful that the day is over.

Our basketball team this year has given us s
number of surprises. Although it suffered 1 few
defects, the "fight" in our team surprised everyone.
The showing that our boys made against the big Brent-
wood team, and the place that they won in the District
Tournament were enough to fill each and every student
with school spirit. ,
Our chances for the first place in the County
League looked fairly good this year, as only two reg-
ulars, Elliott and Bowers, were lost through graduation.
However, the remaining players were all very small, Fer-
guson having one of the smallest teams in the County
This year, the teams of the County Division played
a double round robin, that is, each team played every
other school twice, once on the home floor and once away.
Our fighting team showed that they could take it,
and give it, too. Many times they played into extra
periods because of a tie score. They battled the huge
Brentwood team, the champions of the County Division, to
a standstill twice, losing by only one or two points. A
tie for second place was finally obtained for Ferguson.
As Joe Montrey was the only regular who played, Fer-
guson lost out entirely in the Normandy Tournament.
By far the biggest event of the basketball season
was the St. Louis District Tournament. Two busses were
engaged to carry the enthusiastic 'rootersu to the games.
Ferguson battled its way to second place in the UBW bracket,
besting Chaminade, Principia, and Wellston. The undefeated
team of Country Day woni irst place. In the game with Wells-
ton, which played into two extra periods, Tuthill saved the
game twice by making free throws after the gun was fired.
Coach Schulze, during this game, exclaimed, nThat's the fight
in'est team live ever hadl' ,
Coach Schulze had as material for the team: P. Grimm,
fCaptainJ, W. Grimm, George Tuthill, Jody Montrey, Charles
Parker, Dave Owen, Gene Herrmann, Herbert Robinson, Roy
Warner, and Robert King.
THE WRESTLING TEAM
The wrestling club this year is the strongest
group which has represented Ferguson in this sport.
The club sponsored by Mr. B. L. Westfall, won third
place in the Normandy meet and third place in the
state tournament. Twenty-one boys participated. In
each weight one or more boys was eligible. During
the season eight bouts were scheduled.
Wrestling is becoming one of the major sports of
today. High schools and colleges are adopting it not
only because of the honors that may be won but also
because it is body building, and healthful. The Greeks
and other nations used it in warfare. They had perfected
wrestling to a fine degree. The art of wrestling has been
lost for centuries. It was not until lately that the world
again has begun to take an interest in wrestling as a sport
Wrestlers in the Normandy Tournament from Ferguson
were: Charles Thompson, Harry Van Middlesworth, Elwood
Roberts, Harold Hem inghaus, Alden Staples, Raymond Fry,
Anthony Kluefer, Wesley Brandau, Harry Chrismer, Joseph
Montrey, Frank Schuler, Herbert Robinson, Roger Farmer,
and Wesley Leveridh.
Winners in the Normandy Tournament from Ferguson were:
Wesley Leverich, lst. Heavy, Roger Farmer, lst. 165, Joe
Montrey, lst. 145, and Anthony Kluefer, 2nd. 125.
Places of Schools in the Tournament were:
lst. Normandy 51 points 3rd. Ferguson 25 points
2nd. U. City 26 points 4th. Kirkwood ll points
For placing third in the Normandy Tournament, the team
received a beautiful black and silver wall plaque.

Just as had been predicted, the Ferguson High
School girls' volley-ball team conquered all its op-
ponents in a tournament in the High School Auditorium,
Friday, October 20, 1935, and so won the St. Louis
County Volley-ball League Championship.
The girls scored two decisive victories over Brent-
wood in the finals 15-9 and 15-8 after previously having
trounced Fairview and Riverview.
The boys' team found the going rafher rough in the
semifinals when it was nosed out by Brentwood, who in
the finals soundly troumced Riverview two straight games
for the title.
Members of the Ferguson Boys' team who took part in
the tournament are: Joe Montrey, John Boelhauf, Charles
Miller, Frank Schuler, Wesley Leverich, Charles Parker,
David Owen, Charles Grimm, and Charles Henry Grim .
One of the most interesting features of the tour-
nament was the clash between the coaches of the various
schools and the Brentwood champions. These young players
took their instructors literally Wfor a riden, winning the

volley-ball, an increasing popular game, is one
of the Ferguson girls' biggest activities. Because
it is less strenuous than basket-ball and other games,
many welcome it with much more enthusiasm.
Can it be that this sport is just lately becoming
popular? Can the reason that there are so few Seniors
interested be attributed to the upper c1assmen's out-
side activities? There were just nine girls willing
to play! The girls played two games. They won the one
at Ritenour, while University City won the other.
The Junior Class has always been an exceptionally
active one in all events. Their athletic teams are
very strong, and so we were not surprised to hear that
they had won their games from Ritenour, and University
City. Many of the girls for the varsity team were chosen
from this class.
The Sophomores were pleased to announce that they,
like the Juniors, won both of their games also. These
games were played with University City and Wellston.
Whether it is that they wouldn't be outdone by the
upperclassmen or whether they are just marvelous athletes,
we don't know, but the Freshmen won all of their games.
The victories of these games from Wellston and University
City were enthusiastically celebrated. But all nrazzinn
aside, we do truly congratulate you and wish you much
The Varsity chosen from all classes gave much evidence
of its ability to play well when its members won their first
and only game. The score of this game played with Normandy
was 8 to 57. The members of the Varsity were: Eleanore
Scoville, Jessie Schaffner, Mary Alice Skillington, Anna.

THE STREETS OF FERGUSON
Upon coming into a strange town, almost everyone
is interested in learning the manner in which the streets
acquired their names. One often comes into contact with
towns whose streets are named after the various trees or
for the great men of the nation: but seldom does one find
a town whose streets, with but few exceptions, are named
to commemoratexuilrous of its old substantial families.
Such, however, is the case of Ferguson.
Perhaps it was genuine curiosity which caused me to
make inquiries in regard to the streets of Ferguson, but
nevertheless I did. A visit to Miss George Case, who is
very well informed on the early history of Ferguson, af-
forded me a fund of knowledge of the whys and wherefores "
of our streets' names.
Practically all of the older families of Ferguson
are represented in some way, among which are the Herefords,
Tiffins, Januarys, Cases, Paynes, and many others.
The main street of Ferguson, however, did not receive
its name in this way. Florissant Boulevard is named for the
present small town of Florissant, situated four miles north
of Ferguson. In the old days Florissant was the main met-
ropolis in this'vicinity and Ferguson was merely a small sub-
urb in which business men of St. Louis, whofwished to get
their families away from the turmoil of the city, established
their homes. North Elizabeth Road was the old route to Flor-
issant and, of course, was called Florissant Road. Later,
when a new paved road connecting these towns was laid, it
became Florissant Boulevard, the present main street of Fer-
The Hereford family seems to have been composed of
many members and they must have been very popular, for we
find a number of streets named after them. Hereford Avenue
was named for Dr. John R. Hereford, who for many years was
a prominent physician in this town. Other members of this
family whose names were given to streets are Adelle, Annette,
Mary, Emily, Gerald, Nancy, Scott, Powell, and Robert.
. , V Q
The Tiffin family is commemorated by the following
streets, all of which were cut through their vast property,
Tiffin, Randolph, Harrison, Thomas, Hern, and Shirley.
The name Tiffin was extended to the blocks formerly known
as Eleanor, and Florence, the latter being named for
Florence Green. . r
January, Machir, Abston, and Dade are named for
the January family whose property at one time included the
Wabash Club. Undoubtedly the name January brings up fond
memories to many Ferguson residents, for January Pond has
been the scene of the great many skating parties for years
past. Lake Street received its name because of its location
near this body of water.
Another old fardly represented in this group is the
Case family, who owned a large amount of property in Fer-
guson. Georgia is named for Miss Georgia Case, and Julia
for her sisterg Estelle is named for a friend of the family.
Wesley Avenue was originally called Hudson for a
daughter of the Case family. It was later changed to Wes-'
ley, being named for John Wesley. Since the Methodist Church
is located on this street, the name is very appropriate.
In order to shorten the distance from South Elizabeth
Avenue to Dr. Douglas' residence on Florissant, and the one
school of the town, a movement led by Mr. Charles B. Adams
agitating the cutting of a street from South Elizabeth Avenue
to Florissant Boulevard, resulting in the laying of Adams
Elizabeth Avenue, the southern part of which was ori-
ginally called LarkinPlace was named for Mrs. Larkin. Darst
Road, of course, was named for the Darst family, who have been
prominent in Ferguson for many years.
Other streets which received their names from old
families are Bangert, Bruce, Clark, Blackburn, Throughman,
Chanslor, Berlin, Graf, Carson, and Miller Place.
Hartnett Avenue, which was laid out by the Darst
family was named for the Hartnett family, who were related
to the Darsts and Januarys.
Blanche Avenue was named for Blanche Miller, who is
now Mrs. Lattimore, and Lawrence Place was named by Mr. Epple
for his grandson. Later'a new street called Epple was laid

C. W. A. WORK
In connection with the National Recovery Act
and the Relief Administration, the Civil Works Act
was inaugurated in this section December lst, 1933
and continued until February 15th, 1934.
The Ferguson School District was allotted ap-
proximately fifty workers in various capacities, and
utilized this labor to make many improvements that -
could not have been made and also to do much repair
that effected a saving to the district. ,
Aside from the material benefit to the schools,
many unemployed people were given work at a fair wage.
For a number of weeks the school CWA payroll was 31,000
and that of the city was approximately the same. As a
larger part of the workers resided in this trade area,
the CWA projects played its part in recovery to this
The painting of the entire exterior of the Central
School saved the district the expense of this much needed
repair. The chimneys and walls of the Central building
were painted and windows fully caulked. Also in a nu ber
of the rooms the desks were refinished and the gymmasiu
walls were cleaned. The Central School yard was leveled
and terraced. A
The Griffith school got the lion's share of the im-
provements by receiving a complete redecoration inside and
out including a twenty foot terrace and a new flight of
concrete steps. ' p
The unsightly dump at the rear of the Vogt High School
has been replaced by a terrace and level yard with retaining
walls. Our trees received the necessary attention to prolong
their lives and beauty.' Aside from the visible projects,
men were available to assist the Janitors, clerical help
was furnished the administration, and research workers gave
and marked tests.
It is regretted that our project was abandoned rather
abruptly. The greater part of the work planned was done,
but not completed. It is hoped that we will be able to ob-
tain a few people to complete the sodding and concrete work.
However, the year of the CHA till be remembered for a long
time and the improvements rendered to this community has
made Ferguson a better place in which to live.

THESE PUBLIC CONVAYANCES
Riding a street car is without a doubt one of the
most interesting ways of wasting time that nature has
ever provided. The people who board these cars come
under the category of the types so ably advertised by the
circus barkers, that is, 'Here Yar Are.... .... .Something
new and different, every moment a new thrill.W For the
best observation post, make your football tackle for a
seat near the center of the car as this position will not
only enable you to see all the specimens getting on but
also a goodly number who will be sprinkled in front.
Turning to the serious side of such observations,
one who is really interested in studying people and not
just trying to make an impression, may see a representative
from every type of home this nation knows make his or her
triumphant entry into Rome-- that is, the Street Car.
Two high school girls are the first to board. They
carry a great number of books, which may or may not mean
they are really studious, but the fact that they both open
the books and actually read them erases all doubt, fwe
know we are viewing a thirst for knowledgel. The next
passenger blows in. The old subconscious falways on the
jobl immediately brands her 'The Duchessn from the imperious
way she glances up and down the aisle trying to locate a
spot far enough from the common horde to avoid contamination
She is probably one of the Van Whoosis of the Philadelphia
Van Whoosisses who always eagerly scan the Sunday Society
section to see if that careless reporter noticed Reginald
and Lucyat at the Symphony.
At this point we emerge upon the main thoroughfare
where what appears to be the Seventh Regiment will hop
aboard. However, upon closer inspection, we see that it
is not the Seventh Regiment Qaforesaidl but merely two or
three business men, some husky matrons who are, for the
benefit of those within hearing distance, discussing the
results of the Uncle Terrence's operation, three or four
small school boys: and,a pair of girls who amid a barrage
df gm snapping think Caioudb that Clark cable is "just
too perfectly adorable.'
At this point, though, all continuity of thought is
broken off by the wrath of the heavens, or to be more speci-
fic, by the four little devils in the rear who have pulled the
trolley off the wire and have caused Mrs. Van Whoosis seriously
to strain her corset by looking back for the seat of the dis
turbance. Even Uncle Terrence's operation Cmind you, m'dear
is forgotten in the excitement but due to rigorous training,
the two studious young ladies are not upset in the least and
religiously go on reading how all Gaul is divided into three
parts for is it three partsl and finally the operator of the
car with all sorts of advice from the "Duchess" restores law
and order. Once more we proceed peaceobly-on our way...We hope

HOW TO PLAY BASEBALL X -P-
In all my years of experience in athletic c Shi ,?Lf2i2IIx
I have found many people totally ignorant c ect ,QED
method of playing baseball. For these peop I ve made
an outlino of the most important points.
According to Robert's, WRules of Order, Revised', there
are six positions on the team. They are pitcher, guard, left
wing, half-back, catcher, and forward.
The object of the game is to hit the ball with the long
club which you are given, as hard and as far as possible.
You are then to run. These gestures seem very cowardly, but
it is the only thing to do if you wish to become a good ball-
After hitting the ball, run to the nearest white bag
and stamp it vigorously. If the ball is not in sight, it
is best to continue running until you come to another bag.
I, like all good ball-players, stop on the second bag, fyou
should always do this because one of your opponents might
run up and tag you with the ball.J Don't start to play tag
with this fellow, as he wishes, but walk demurely back to
the bench. Some find it most nonchalant to whistle during
y The pitcher should try to throw the ball as hard as
he can to see how many times he can hit the batter: while
the catcher is to, as the name implies, catch as many of
these balls as he can before the batter hits either him
or the ball.
The other players are to run around and keep the
field clear from balls so that the players will not trip
on them. '
These are the most important points. Although further
hints might be given, I am sure that all who did not know
how to play baseball prior to reading this little article,
now fully understand the game.

LLONG A CITY STREET
The noise and confusion of a busy city street whirls
about one's ears, like the infernal monotonous music that
sets the time for the mad dance of the world.
Past a great fruit store a weft of air comes laden
with the scent of over ripe bananas, late lemons and
oranges: a moment later it blends with sickening fumes
into the deadly smell of gas from a yawning hole in the
pavement. All the dors of the world seem to meet and
congregate here: metal, leather, paint and soap, rank
cheese in some traveler's market basket, thick, stifling
smoke from a steam engine, taking up gravel to feed a
new patch of paving, mingled with the sw at of liarthy
foreigners grouped about it. Across the bridge there is
the dank odor of the river and, just beyond, the meat
packing plant, the slaughter house, and the glue factory.
The faint sweet smell of early violets fro an occasional
flower vendor never stands a chance against these, even
if the fish monger isn't trudging along beside him with his
basket of evil smelling trout, herring, and carp.
But picture for a mo ent the origin of all these
obnoxious odors. A playful bubbling brook was the home
of the rainbow colored trout that the fish monger displayed
Cattle had grazed peacefully in the pastures where pearly
dew had rested on the fragrant petals of the violets. The
frame for this quiet picture was the stately trees that
arched lavishly overhead, the back grou d was the blue,
blue sky flecked with fleeoy, dancing clouds.

Justthat personality is, is difficult to say in
so many words, but it may be described as that'happy,
vivacious, fascinating, compelling something one has.
Or on the other hand, it may be a sour, sarcastic, f
doleful, repelling something found in some people.
Yet both may be called personality. However, we choo
to write of the compelling personality, that which is
the power to win liking and inspire personal devotion.
These high-born people with that certain something
called personality have first an interest in everyone and
everything. They have an excellent sense of humor, the
ability to make witty repartee without malice.' This qual
ity makes for good conversation abilities. But people
show most particularly their personality by their deal-
ings with others. They seem to make it their business to
get along'with people, as though the success of their life
depended upon making friends. They show individual appre-
ciation in each person and

They always show respect for,

individuals own life experiences
problems and affairs. To do this there is no way but for
them to be a good listener. These super-beings induce the
participation of everyone in every event. To su this up,
we find that what these unusual people do is to meet other'
wishes, for after all, isn't that why we like them?
It seems that with personality one needs little else

Of course nothing'hwppened until we hit the strato-

until our gravity machine, starting to work, restored
us to our normal state.
There were three of us in the ship, Jack, I, and
a dog. Nothing happened until we hit Mars. When I say
hit, I mean it. Our ship buried itself fifty feet into
the ground. We lifted it up by means of levers, pulleys,
and incline planes.

Mars a little bit more

men with faces like Clark Gable. The women looked very
much like Marlene Dietrich. Both the men and the women,
wore polka dot pants and shirt.
The cities on Mars are built like stools. There are
long columns with flat areas on
top where the houses are
built. This is necessary for p otection from the Whom-
gzelau, a very tall and ferocious beast, which looks like
a cross between a giraffe and an elephant.
The people greeted us kindly and gave us a pleasant
time for several days. They showed us their farms, fac-

They are shaped like a bullet which has wings on either
side. These ships can attain the speed of a thousand

WHEN SHE WAS BAD SHE WAS HORHID
A cold formal drawing room was decorated with
straight backed chairs, where people would rather
stand than sit. In one of these stately chairs, sat
Mildred in disgrace.
I wish you.could have seen her there. Even if she
was naughty, she was delicious. Her long yellow curls
had been brushed around a stick in the morning. They
were like yellow corkscrews around her well formed baby
head. Soft curls framed her pretty face with one little
ringlet right between her eyesg for she was the little
girl, who had a little curl right in the middle of her
The rain was beating relentlessly against the window
pane. Mildred was thinking over her day's accomplishments.
How gladly she would have taken her punishment for another
taste of that jan: oh---o it was gg good.
After sitting ever so long, three year old Mildred
slipped quietly out of the nmean old chairn to see what
she could do. In the middle of the room a board squeaked.
Mildred gave a gasp, the kind of a gasp one gave when afraid
of being discovered, then a sigh of relief as she heard
Mhumxy in the beck of the house telling Susie, the new maid
to be sure to clean in the corners.
Mildred crept into Munny's room. There on the dress-

that. O-O--O, a box of cold cream, nice slippery cold cream
so white, and so much of it. How nice and white it would
look on Mu my's black velvet evening gown. Now just a dab

NO JUSTICE AMONG TWINS
Why should there be twins? Thi is the serious ques-
tion the brother of such e. calamity asks. It is bad enough
to be the brother of these iriniortal beings, but when one
is e boy and the other a. girl: thet's worse!
Whenever some fun or pleasure is to be had, who is
there, but the "Twins". Whenever an extra. piece of cake is
left in the cake-box, who gets it? 'The twins." But when
mother says "Who is going to rake the yard of clean the
basement", the twins are not to be found. Ever since I
learned to drive the car, the twins think that they should
always have this privilege. But one dey when mother said
something about going to the store, I jumped in the car and
almost stripped the gears ,getting away. When the twins tried
to stop ue, I almost ran over o. couple of them. If I should
have, old men Conscience would not have bothered. me so much.
You boys who have twins older than you, have ell the sympathy
I can offer. Never give in to them. If they try to emulate
you in your struggle for earthly goods, don't let them.
Fight for what is yours and never let am twin cross your path,
for it is the worst luck with which you can come in contact.
' I believe I have wasted enough time writing about this
duet, so to conclude my theme, I have dedicated this short
verse to them and to all pf their kind.
Most children are born to me-.ke the best of life,
But some find it hard with work and strife,
But the ones who won't, in my estimation,
Are those get-ell twins of this generation.

CHILDQCTD QEHILISCEHCES ,
When I was ebeut ten years old, I had the most
fantastic tires I've ever hed. I could visualize,
the most unreal things. I then thought to be a boy
be almost perfect. So when I moved from St.
Louis to Ferguson, I decided to avoid acquaintances
with birls. This was very easy to do since none
lived very near me. 'If I wanted isolation from girls,
I got isolation, hut not alone from girls--from every-
one. I didn't plny with another child in Ferguson
for many months after movingthere.
My psrentsffelt so sorry for me that they often
took me back to the city on visits so I might ploy
with m old friends. Except for these visits during
vacation, I played with no, one but a vmter sjlmniel
New houses 'being built around ny house, auch
morning and evening when the WOF ESH were away, I'd
in these vacant houses., A ' '
I were overalls and one qi my father's hats. I
pretended that I was a cowboy, an Indian, explorer,
airplane pilot, end many other persons. My mind would
become so intent on the particular character I portray
that I lost all sense of titre and place. I become an
entirely different person. I lived, laughed, suffered,
and often died in that character. 1
I knew what it wrs to he freezing on top of a
mountain or to be dying from thirst on the Snhnrns. I
explored the bottom cf the oceans: and in an airplane
I soared above the clouds. I preached religion to the
cannibrnls in Africa'-., and made visits to Churches in Rome.
I climbed trees like "Tn.rze.n of the Apes", and met many
aristocrats in society. I sang grand opera like Caruso,
and became n Whnrkern at a circus.
Although the ability to escape from reality is not
now entirely lost, I regret very much that it has partially
disappeared. Often it is very refreshing to forget for a
while that we have a Chemistry test or a history outline
due in the morning.
