The Class of Nineteen Thirty
N the fall of 1927 two hundred and fifty sophomores entered Ann Arbor
High School. They have formed a very solid foundation for the school in
more Ways than one.
In athletics they have been prominent, especially during the past year,
having contributed more members to the teams than both the Sophomores and
Seniors together. Those starring in basketball were Captain Billy Pegan, Doug-
las Nott, Peter Zahner, Robert Mayfield, and Roger Brown. James Conover
and Harry Kasabach represented their class on the second team. In football
Douglas Nott, Peter Zahner, Francis Jenkins, Billy Pegan, William Judson,
Alfred Frey, James Nichols, Harry Matthews, Alfred Schneeberger, James Con-
over, Arnold Walsh, Robert Mayfield, Kenneth Wagner, and Edward Magill
received letters for their ability on the gridiron. Earl Steeb, Lewis Sergeant,
Emerson Kempf, Arthur Mosier, Parke Sager, Stanton Ware, Kenneth Wagner,
and Harry Matthews were listed among the reserves. The swimmers in the class
were Captain Grier Bovard, Harry Matthews, Douglas Nott, Lewis Sergeant, and
Rodes Clay. Two-thirds of the track team came from C-1 this year: Alfred
Schneeberger, Earl Steeb, Charles Stocking, Floyd Wakefield, Roger Brown,
and Peter Zahner were among them. Floyd Wakefield, Hoyt Servis, and Wil-
liam McFall shone on the cross country squad.
Scholastically, they had such individual geniuses as James Conover, Ruth
Lovejoy, Hilda Haab, Eloise Backus, George Luther, Harry Kasabach, Mar-
garet Steere, Eric Barlow, Charles Menefee, Lyle Waggoner, Wayne Dickens,
Edythc Lowery, Ferne Palmer, and Elizabeth Switzer.
For the school publications the class of 1930 has furnished many able
workers: on the Omega Ruth Lovejoy and Margaret Norton have assisted the
editor-in-chief, while Stanton Ware and Peter Zahner have helped the business
manager. Evelyn Hawley was on the Opfimisf staff. In this class also were a
number who were invited to the Honor Banquet because of a perfect attend-
ance record. They included Thelma Marquardt, Clifford Noll, Frederick
Jahnke, and John Schwemmin. In dramatics. Jean Engard, Alba Bush, and
Roderick and Margaret Norton have distinguished themselves. Richard Burris
was one of the five cheer-leaders.

The Class of 1931
'HE class of 1931 consists of 386 students, 152 of whom came from Tap-
pan, 115 from Mack, 74 from Jones, seven from the University High
School, four from the Stone School, and 32 from places remote from Ann
More than fifty of these students excelled in many different activities.
Those attaining high scholarship were Ruth Coles, Mary Lunny, Margaret
Major, Clarence Markham, Vera Newbrough, Sarah Pierce, Eleanor Yanke, and
Seven Sophomores, four of whom were promoted to C-1 in January,
served on the Optimist staff. These were Bruce Dick, Bertha Gos, Austin
Lutes, Sarah Pierce, Don Miller, Byrd Pierce, Russell Dunnaback, and Hoyt
The list of participants in different forms of athletics was rather large,
the most popular sport being track. Those boys on the track team were Loyal
Crawford, Harold Gooding, Gladwin Hanks, Gale Hibbard, Alfred Houliston,
Maxwell Miles, James Swenson, Alfred Wagner, and Herman Welke. On the
swimming team were Ross Mayfield, Robert Mowerson, Erwin Schneeberger,
Jack Showler, Elliott Tubbs, and Edwin Webster. Basketball was also repre-
sented in this class: Herbert Letchfield and Alvin Novack played on the first
team, while Richard Dunnaback, James Hickey, Lawrence Pratt, and Richard
White played on the second team.
Those taking part in girls' athletics were Margaret Brooks, Adeline DeBer-
saques, Esther Gauss, Bertha Gos, Sarah Pierce, and Peggy Whiteman. The
cheer leaders from C-3 were Roy Alexander, Derwood Prochnow, and Ray-
mond Wines. In the Christmas play were Andre Charissi, Frieda Fiegel, Vera
Newbrough, and Sarah Pierce. The Sophomore stunt at the Fancy Dress Party
was awarded second place. Sarah Pierce was chairman of the committee with
Frieda Fiegel, Mabel Lennon, Vera Newbrough, and Esther Theurer. Ruth
and Marion Qua were awarded prizes for the prettiest costumes.

The Senior Play
GST HE Road to Yesterdayf, a fantasy by Beulah Marie Dix and Evelyn
Greenleaf Sutherland, was presented in Pattengill auditorium by the
Seniors, on the evenings of March 22 and 23. The plot concerns Elizabeth Tyrell,
who while visiting in London Wishes that she might be living in the age of
Queen Elizabeth. As it is Midsummer,s Eve, her wish is granted in a dream
and she finds herself in disguise, scrubbing floors in an English inn. Her
friends are there in other personalities, but none of them recognizes her. She is
carried off by the villian, but is rescued by her dying lover. At this dramatic
moment she wakens and all ends well.
The cast did fine work: Nancy-Ellen Reed in the part of Elizabeth Tyrell,
and David Dow as the dashing but discreet hero. Ann Verner was a charming
gypsy. Bernice Druckenbrod, Carleton Jolly, and Elmo Vincent played parts
varying widely in character in the two scenes. The best comedy work was
done by Rose Block and Edward Fahan. The costumes were elaborate and at-
tractive, and in the second and third acts typical of the period. The settings,
both modern and historic, were excellent and showed much ingenuity on the
part of the director. Between the acts June Lapointe, Charles Friday, and
Karl Krumrei added much to the enjoyment of the occasion with their artistic
and original costume dances.

The Christmas Play
HE ANNUAL Christmas play was presented before vacation in assembly
for high school students, and-in the evening for the general public. As
it is an all-school play, the cast was most representative. "Why the Chimes
Rang," by Elizabeth MacFadden, was selected as being most appropriate for
the season and giving greatest opportunity for acting.
The beautiful settings were built by Charles Jenkins and Charles Friday,
and painted by George Monks, who created a really convincing cathedral scene.
Acting honors go to Roderick Norton and Rodes Clay, as Holger and Steen
respectively. Margaret Norton Was the prophetic old Woman and Carlisle
Schnitzer was the matter-of-fact Uncle Bertel. In the pantomine Andre Charissi
Was the serious priest, while Sarah Pierce was the angelg Vera Newbrough,
' Frieda Fiegel, Esther Kunkle, Mary Michael, and Ruth Lovejoy played the parts
of courtier, rich man, rich Woman, king, and Wise man respectively.
Excellent and appropriate music was arranged by Miss Higbee with the
aid of the Girls, Glee Club and the Orchestra. Before the performance began,
the girls sang Christmas carols. The play is so beautiful in conception that
the director hopes that it may become an annual event and a high school tra-
The Honor Banquet
The annual Honor Banquet, now an established institution, was originated
by Superintendent Emeritus Slauson in the year 1909. Although this affair
began on rather a meager basis, it has grown larger and larger because of the
fine effect it has had as a stimulus to thorough work, exemplary conduct, and
true devotion to the entire Ann Arbor High School. The Honor Banquet was
originally only for those who distinguished themselves in football. Each year
new activities, deemed Worthy of reward, have been added to the list until now
anyone who has made some distinction in one line or another is given this
great honor in appreciation of his effort.
The twentieth annual banquet was held on the evening of December 14,
1928. Students representing football, basketball, tennis, track, swimming,
and all classes of sports for both boys and girlsg those who had excelled in
scholarship honors, dramatics, music, debating, oratory, declamation, extempore
speaking, citizenship honors, the editors and managers of the Optimist and
Omega, and those students having a perfect attendance record of from two to
eight years took part at this banquet.
The gymnasium was decorated very attractively and most appropriately
for the Christmas season. At the far end of the room was a huge reproduction
of the school seal in purple, black,and gold on a white background. The
balcony was bordered with little Christmas trees which sparkled with colored
lights. These decorations were the work of the members of the art classes.
Following the banquet toasts were given by students and alumni. Lines
of the school song, "The Purple and the White,', were used as the theme of
The speakers were as follows:
Toastmaster - Professor Daniel Rich
Dramatics - - Elizabeth Norton
Scholarship - - - - Anna GOSS
Athletics - - - William Mordsky
Debating and Oratory - - John Huss
Publications - - - Kenneth Gorton
Attendance - - Clarence Illi
Alumni ----- Thomas Lyndon
The orchestra under the direction of Miss Higbee contributed delightful
selections which added to the enjoyment throughout the evening. Since honors
for students who distinguished themselves in music and in citizenship were
additional to last year's list, the number exceeded that of all former years. The
evening was closed by the singing of the school song.

I-IE ANN ARBOR HIGH SCHOOL BAND was organized in 1924, and
has steadily grown until it now numbers thirty-five members. Attractive
uniforms in the school colors were purchased two years ago through the gen-
erosity of the business men of Ann Arbor, and the school has been proud this
year of the line appearance made by the Band whenever it appeared in public.
The student body sometimes fails to realize just how much it owes to the Band
for its frequent appearances at athletic contests. It played at all of the football
games, all of the basketball games, at the annual Field Day May 31, and sev-
eral times at the junior high schools of the city in order to arouse interest
among the junior high school pupils who will soon be in the Senior High School.
At the time of the regional basketball tournament, the Student Council
raised enough money by popular subscription to send the Band to Jackson, where
it gave inspiration to the players by its "peppy" music. The Band is the only
one of the four musical organizations of the school which did not enter the
state music contest at Lansing in May. The director, Mr. Champion, felt
that too many men had been lost by graduation last year to warrant competi-
tion with seasoned organizations from the larger high schools of the state.
However, he hopes to have a band second to none next year.
EVER BEFORE in the history of the school have the high school assem-
blies proved so inspiring as this year. This was due mainly to the ex-
cellent programs provided by the Assembly Lyceum Bureau, but also in large
measure to the fine music which the augmented orchestra of forty pieces
has furnished at almost every assembly. At the beginning of the year several
new instruments were purchased, and many new students responded to Miss
Higbee's call for members. With a large number of more or less trained
musicians, the director has been able to attempt more difficult selections than
ever before, and to render them with a finish and verve which are gratifying
in a high school group.
Besides its appearances in assembly, the orchestra played before the Ro-
tarian and Kiwanis luncheon clubs at the Chamber of Commerce, and received
well-merited praise for its efforts. In the state music contest at Lansing May
2, it played the following selections: overture from "Egmont," by Beethoven,
and "Waltz of the Flowers," from the Nut-Cracker Suite by Tschaikowski.
Competing with much larger orchestras, it did not win honors, but Miss Hig-
bee expressed herself as being well satisfied with the excellent showing which

The Boys' Glee Club
HIS YEAR the Boys' Glee Club was composed of twenty-two members
who met bi-weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays during school hours.
Miss Juva Higbee, head of the music department of the public schools, acted
as director, while Virginia Forsythe made an efficient accompanist.
Although the club rehearsed frequently, it did not appear in public as
often as last year, being content to point its efforts towards the state music
contest held at Lansing May 2. Here the boys sang "On the Sea" by Dudley
Buck, and "Lovely Night," by Chwatal, and made a very favorable im-
pression, although they did not place.
At the Christmas play several members of the club assisted with the in-
cidental music. At the Schoolmasters' Club meeting in Hill Auditorium April
25 the boys appeared with the girls as part of the musical program presented
by the high school chorus. The combined clubs sang, a Capella, "Day Spring
of Eternity" by Christensen, Roland Otto carrying the solo part. Here they
showed the results of the long and careful training which they have had
under the excellent leadership of Miss Higbee. It is hoped that she will
allow them to appear more frequently next year as their repertoire and their

The Girls' Glee Club
HEN MISS HIGBEE organized the Girls' Glee Club last fall hfty girls
tried out for places. From this number the director selected thirty-two
of the best voices, and with them developed a hrst-class organization. The
club met twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, during school hours.
Virginia Forsythe was the accompanist during the entire year, while Dorothy
Stapleton was elected president.
The girls appeared in assembly and sang at a Parent-Teachers meeting.
They also made an impressive appearance at the Christmas play in assembly,
where they sang several familiar Christmas carols. On this occasion they were
dressed in red Capes and hoods and carried lighted candles, suggestive of the
carol singers of Old England.
Appearing with the Boys' Glee Club at the Schoolmasters' Club concert
in Hill Auditorium, April 25, they sang with excellent effect Christensen's
"Day Spring of Eternity." They repeated this number at the state music
contest at Lansing May 2, and also sang two selections without the boys:
"The Loreleiv by Heine, and 'lSummer Wind" by McDowell. While they did
not win, their selections gained applause, and they looked particularly attrac-
tive in the dainty uniforms which they had chosen for the occasion.

Debating and Public Speaking
PEECH ACTIVITIES in the Ann Arbor High School have been in charge of
a new director this year: Miss Ethel Wisehart succeeded Miss Mayzel
Evans as debate coach and public speaking teacher. As in the past, the school
joined the Michigan High School Debating League, and engaged in four pre-
liminary debates. The local team, composed of John Huss, Abe Zwerdling,
and Lucille Jetter, who is not in the above picture, succeeded in winning the
initial encounter with Lansing by a unanimous vote. The team was then de-
feated by River Rouge. Ferndale was the next opponent, against whom the
local trio was successful. The last debate of the four was won by Adrian.
This dehnitely eliminated the school from the second series of debates in the
state league. John Huss, a Senior, was the only member who had had previous
experience. Abe Zwerdling, a Sophomore, showed remarkable ability, and will
be a strong support for next yearis team. Lucille Jetter was succeeded by
Hilda Angerer in the later debates, and both girls acquitted themselves notablyi
During the second semester the school entered the Michigan High School
Oratorical Association, Abe Zwerdling won the local declamation contest
with his declamation, "The Predatory Richf' while Hilda Angerer won the
oratorical contest. John Huss won the district contest in the Michigan
Extempore League. He also represented the school in the Peninsular League

The Student Council
HE Student Council this year was composed of fifteen student members,
consisting of hve student officers from the Sophomore, junior, and Senior
classes respectively. Regular meetings were held every other Thursday, but
several special meetings were also called.
The Student Council boasts of the success with which this year's work
was carried out. Because the student-monitor system which it put into effect
during the year 1928 did not prove successful as planned, it devised a new and
far better plan of student supervision in the halls. The Council also super-
vised pep meeting, cared for the bulletin-boards, provided new cheer leaders
and recommended that they be awarded with A. A. letters for their services,
took charge of cleaning-up the school and its grounds, suggested and debated
on the question of a baseball team, and chose the student members of the
Athletic and Non-Athletic Boards.

The Athletic Board
HE Athletic Board of Control is one of the oldest organizations in the
school. It was organized by the Board of Education in 1894, and intrusted
with the entire control of athletic activities. Among its duties are the arrange-
ment of football, basketball, track, and other schedules, awarding of athletic
letters, and supervision of games held in the city under the auspices of the
school. The Board is composed of six members: the principal, two teachers
chosen by the faculty, and three students chosen by the Student Council to
represent their respective classes. Mr. Wines and Mr. Joclyn have been honored
faculty members for many years.
In the course of its history the Board has renewed the football equipment,
provided removable bleachers for the school gymnasium, erected bleachers on
Wines Field, drained the field itself, and otherwise improved it in many ways.
This yearls Board awarded letters to the cheerleaders and purchased new suits
for the athletic teams. In the spring it conducted a successful campaign in
connection with the Student Council to provide funds for a baseball team, an
athletic activity which has not been represented in the school for many years.

The N on-Athletic Board
HE Non-Athletic Board of Control was founded in 1894 by the Board
of Education, at the same time that the Athletic Board of Control was
authorized. As its name implies, it has control over all extra-curricular activi-
ties of the school which are distinct from athletics. Like the Athletic Board,
it is composed of six members: the principal, two teachers elected each year
by the faculty, and one representative from each of the three classes chosen by
the Student Council.
During the past year the N. A. B. has co-operated with the Student
Council in the management of affairs which come under the jurisdiction of
both groups. A joint committee was appointed to take charge of these affairs
and to present them at the meetings of the two organizations. This has resulted
in mutual benefit to them both and to the school. The duties of the Board
include such things as the formulation of rules governing school societies,
recognition of new clubs, and complete supervision of all-school parties, includ-
ing the arrangement of a schedule for the year and the appointment of com-
mittees and chaperones. One of its most important activities is the regulation
of student-activity pointsg by a graduated point scale sudents may indulge in
only as many activities as their abilities will permit.

OR forty-three years the Seniors of the Ann Arbor High School have
published a year-book. Beginning under the title, "The Breeze," the book
soon changed its name to "The Omega," significant of the end of its pub-
lishers, the Seniors,-at least as far as the high school is concerned. The book
on the whole has been very creditable, but not until last year was a volume
published which was really excellent from both an artistic and a technical
standpoint. The change was due to a change in engravers: for the first time,
the Detroit Service Engraving Company received the contract for the engrav-
ing. In addition to the engraving work, the company offers the resources of
its art and editorial departments. The result was an attractively-bound book,
beautifully engraved and artistically conceived.
This year's Omega, the forty-third volume, follows much the same
plan as last year's book. The engraving has again been done by the Detroit
Service Engraving Company. The art theme is based on the early explorations
of the French and Indians in Michigan, La Salle is supposed to be the first
white man ever to cross the Huron River. The rich brown leather cover with
the same attractive design which was used last year lends the book a distinctive
appearance, while the use of colored ink in the opening section and on the
page borders adds further to its attractiveness.
Three new features render this year's book distinctive: the arrangement
of the Senior pictures and cartoons across the page instead of up and down,
the faculty section, and the original pencil sketch of the high school which
serves as a frontispiece. The faculty section in che past has appeared every
four years. Now that the school has become a three-year senior high school
the faculty section will probably appear every three years. The frontispiece
is the work of a Detroit artist and was sketched especially for this book.
One of the features which always characterizes the Omega is the Senior
cartoons. These are seldom found in other year books but have become so
much a part of the Ann Arbor publication that without them the book would
not seem complete. They represent one of the largest single jobs in the prep-
aration of the Omega. Hence it is fitting that the work of Helen Brittain, the
assistant editor, and of Mrs. Sellard's art classes should be particularly com-
mended. Miss Carson and her class in office practice deserve the thanks of
the staff for the efficient way in which they assisted in the preparation of the
Last year's book made a profit of 3535.005 this year the business manager
expects merely to break even because of the extra expense connected with the
special features. The size remains the same as last year, as well as the price
per copy and the number of copies printed. Mr. Robert Granville, head of
the English Department, supervised the construction of the book.

HE OPTIMIST, weekly publication of the Ann Arbor High School, has
been quite successful during the past year under the efficient guidance of
Robert Pierce, editor-in-chief, Leonard Coryell, business manager, and Mr.
Isbell, faculty adviser, who succeeded Mr. Granville. When the change in
advisers was made, it was found expedient to change the office as well. Hence
the Optimist now occupies airier and more commodious quarters in the old
radio room. The size, style, and make-up remained the same as last year. How-
ever, the quality of the contents has shown an improvement, possibly because
the editor has had the assistance of Kenneth Gorton, last year's editor, and
Lewis Gill, sports editor.
An innovation this year was the noon lunches held frequently during
the year at which notable speakers frequently addressed the staff. Among them
were Prof. Maurier of the University of Michigan and Mr. Ray Baker of Ann
Arbor Daily News. Several delegates were sent to the Michigan Interscholastic
Press Association meeting at Ann Arbor. In February, Robert Pierce went
as delegate to the Columbia Press Association meeting held in New York City
On March 26 the Optimist staff acted as host to the other publications of the
city schools at a supper served in the cafeteria. Mr. Forsythe, Mr. Granville,
Mr. Isbell, and Robert Pierce were the speakers, while Lewis Gill acted as toast-

The Fancy Dress Party
HE BIG EVENT of the year for the girls, the Fancy Dress Party, was
held on the evening of February 15. As usual teachers were stationed at
each door to prevent the entrance of "undesired guests." Came the Grand
March, with its gay costumes of cats, fairies, soldiers, sailors, jockeys, "hard-
hearted I-Iannahsf' old "men" and ladies, and even circus announcers. Then
there was a scramble for partners for the Hrst dance. The biggest feature of the
occasion was the awarding of prizes for the funniest, the prettiest, and the most
A surprise added to the excitement when the teachers gave a very clever
and comical play, "The Lamp Went Outf' The Sophomores gave a most original
and fantastic presentation of a "Mother Goosen story, "The Old Wfoman Who
Lived in a Shoef' Dancing and singing added to the feature. The Juniors gave
their interpretation of a vaudeville at the famous Wuerth Theater. The prize
was awarded to this class, to the satisfaction of all but the Sophomores and
Seniors. The Seniors concluded the stunt program by giving a display called
"The Toy Shop."

The Science Club
HE SCIENCE CLUB was founded in 1921 as an organization for chem-
istry students only. In 1924- physics students were invited to join. The
next year biology students were admitted to the group, and it became known as
the Science Club. This year the biology students failed to enter the organiza-
tion, however, it is hoped that next year they will show a renewed interest.
The purpose of the organization is to furnish its members with an un-
derstanding of the sciences not available in the classroom because of limited
time. For those students planning to carry their education farther, the
programs furnish material by which they can better judge whether they de-
sire to enter the held of science. For those not intending to go on, an oppor-
tunity is given by which they may learn many interesting and instructional facts
about the sciences which could not easily be obtained elsewhere.
The past year has been a prosperous one for the Science Club. Its mem-
bership was large, its program interesting as well as instructive, and its faculty
adviser efficient. At the first meeting Mr. Ernst gave a demonstration of glass
blowing. According to the evidence in the laboratories later on, a goodly
number of students are seriously considering adopting this trade. Next Mr.
Buell gave a talk on "Physical Facts and Freaksf' At the following meeting
Professor Bartlett of the University of Michigan presented an illustrated lec-
ture on anti-venom. The members next heard a talk on "The History of
Pharmacy," given by Mr. Stocking. The next two meetings were held on
the campus, one in the heating tunnels and the other in the chemical labora-
tories. The next meeting was in charge of the students themselves, representa-
tives from the physics and chemistry departments gave demonstrations in their
respective fields. At a later meeting movies on the rubber and sulphur indus-
tries were shown.
Twice during the year the members departed from their rather practical
standpoint and reveled, once at a sleigh ride party and again at a social func-
tion held in the spring.

The Classical Club
PURPOSE of the Classical Club is to create an interest in Greek and
Latin. Meetings have been held monthly at the homes of the members
and many interesting programs have been presented. At the first meeting of the
year Miss Rieger gave a very interesting talk about her trip abroad.
At Christmas time the club had a party at the home of Frances Smith,
where a few of the girls presented a clever little one-act play by Maurice Bar-
ing called "Calpurnia,s Dinner Partyf,
In February the members attended a performance of Shakespeare's "Julius
Caesarv at the high school. This semester the club has had many fine lectures,
among them an illustrated talk by Professor Swain on ancient monasteries in
which he told of one still existing on Mount Athos.

The Foreign-American Club
F AMERICAN BOYS and those from foreign countries could come to un-
derstand one another, perhaps in the future no League of Nations or Xvorid
Court would be necessary to arbitrate on international differences. In order
to promote a better understanding and to develop a spirit of brotherly love
and friendship, the Foreign-American Club was organized in this school several
years ago. It has served its purposes admirably, first under the guidance of
Miss Edith Hoyle, now of the University High School, and at the present
under the sympathetic supervision of Miss Steele and Miss Tinkham. All
foreign boys are eligible for membership, and the American boys number half
as many as the foreigners. At the regular monthly meetings, the members dis-
cuss the customs of their own countries. During the Christmas vacation Lewis
Gill entertained the club at his home. The nationalities represented this year
are Filipino, Russian, Armenian, Greek, French, and American.

The Touchstone Club
T THE BEGINNING of the year the Touchstone Club, a dramatic or-
ganization, adopted a very efficient way of presenting plays at its meet-
ings. The club was divided into groups and at each meeting a different group
furnished the entertainment. In this way the new members of the club had
an opportunity to show their dramatic ability. Instead of combining with the
Shakespearean Circle as in former years, the Touchstone Club gave a dance in
the high school auditorium in December. It also enjoyed a Christmas party
at Miss I-Iannan's sorority house. The play given the First semester was a one-
act comedy by Booth Tarkington called "Station Y-Y-Y-Y," and "The Florist
Shop," by Winifred Hawlcridge, was presented during the second semester.

The Shakespearean Circle
HE SHAKESPEAREAN CIRCLE, a dramatic organization, has for its
purpose the study and presentation of the drama and the encouragement
of the writing of original plays by members of the student body. To do this
a play contest is sponsored, the winner has his play produced in assembly and
receives a prize. This year no award was made, but last year Jean Cowden pro-
duced "The Essex Ring." Alba Bush, however, wrote a clever skit, "Capital
Punishment Beyond the Styx." The Circle has usually presented interesting
plays, its most ambitious attempt being "She Stoops to Conquer" in May, 1929.
This year the club gave an interesting character study called "Grandma Pulls
the Stringsf, and a light comedy "Shall We Join the Ladies."

The Colonnade Club
HE COLONNADE CLUB had a successful year under the supervision of
Miss Caldwell and Mrs. Sellards. Each monthly meeting was in charge
of a committee of four girls Who were responsible for the entertainment and
refreshments. At one meeting Mary Agnes Swanwick and Nancy-Ellen Reed
reported on their stay at Camp Gray, Saugatuck, the Y. W. C. A. camp to
which they had been sent as delegates the previous summer. At other meetings
Miss Paton gave an interesting talk about her trip to Alaska and Miss Bennett
described her trip abroad.
At Thanksgiving the girls presented each one in the Old Ladies' Home with
a basket of fruit. When Christmas came they helped a family of eight, sup-
plying the children with toys and the older members with money. The annual
dance was given with the Hi-Y Club on April 20.

The Hi-Y Club
URING the past year the Hi-Y club of the Ann Arbor High School has
been a very lively organization and has accomplished many worth-While
things. The annual Old Boys' Conference was attended by several members
of the club, who made the trip to Flint along with a large delegation of Ann
Arbor boys. The Hi-Y-Colonnade dance was held with unusual success in
Several interesting speakers appeared on the program of the organiza-
tion throughout the year. "Father" Iden of the Student Christian Association,
and Martin Mol, student president of that organization, were the speakers
at the opening banquet held at the Y.M.C.A. Charles Bennett, vice-president
of the same group, spoke at a later meeting, while Rev. John Shilling also con-
tributed an excellent talk at one of the programs. Mr. Isbell of the high school
faculty completed the list of speakers.

The Girls' League
HE Girls' League is an organization designed to promote a friendly feeling
among the girls of the school. The dues are not large and the monthly
meetings are free, so that every girl in the Ann Arbor High School may take
advantage of the opportunity offered her to get acquainted with her fellow
students. At every meeting an orchestra played for dancing and refreshments
were served. Programs were offered during the year by a group of alumnae and
by the girls from the Senior, Junior, and Sophomore session rooms.
Since the League includes in its membership all the girls of the school,
it is fitting that it should be sponsored by the three session room teachers. For
years they have given much time and energy to the organization, and the past
year was no exception. The girls of the school owe them a debt of gratitude
for their efforts.

The N estorian Club
HE Nestorian Club was founded last year by Miss Evans, debate coach
at that time, for the purpose of promoting an interest in public speaking
activities. It was reorganized the second semester this year by Miss Wisehart,
who succeeded Miss Evans as teacher of speech. The constitution which had
been adopted last year by the club was adhered to with two important excep-
tions: Juniors and Sophomores were admitted to membership instead of Sopho-
mores only, and the meetings were held at the homes of members in the eve-
ning instead of in the high school building after school hours.
Meetings were held bi-monthly and consisted of debates, cxtemporaneous
speeches, plays, parliamentary drill, and general discussions of current problems.
They were of great value to the members and to the school in general, since
they served to create and foster an interest in speech activities which has never
been very great in the Ann Arbor High School. The club will be valuable
in perpetuating these interests, so that next year many more students will try
out for the debating teams and for places in the contests which are sponsored
by the Michigan High School Oratorical Association.

VERY SCHOOL at times experiences an off-year in football, and this year
proved to be Ann Arbor,s turn to suffer reverses. Although a record squad
reported for early practices, there were few experienced players. The season
was opened with the overwhelming defeat of Durand at Ann Arbor, 37 to 0.
The following Saturday the squad journeyed to Fordson to be trampled by the
Tractor outfit, 21 to 0. The next week at Wines Field, Battle Creek smothered
the faltering Ann Arbor athletes with a score of 12 to 0.
Invading Adrian the following week, the locals managed to tie the score
at 6 to 6. It was a rejuvenated team that gave the strong Pontiac invaders a
hard-fought contest at Wines Field the following Saturday. However, the visit-
ors won with the close score of 12 to 7. The following week's fray at Wines
Field, with the highly touted Flint Northerners, was the second, and incidentally,
the last victory of the year for the Purple and White lads, the score was 7 to 0.
The third tie of the season with Lansing Eastern came the next week, with a score
of 6 to 6.
Saginaw next bested the University City boys at Saginaw amid a driving
rain on a field of mud, the score being 12 to 0. The annual contest with Jack-
son at jackson closed the season with another 6 to 6 tie, although Ann Arbor
clearly outplayed her opponents.
The record of the 1928 team was somewhat stained, since it won only two
games, tied three, and dropped four. There was an unusual number of in-
juries which kept many players out of games when they were badly needed.
Although the team did not function properly, a great deal of credit is due the
boys for their industry and splendid determination. Coach Hollway loses nine
lettermen this year when graduation takes place. These are Captain Mordsky,
Ponto, Frey, Davis, Magill, Tillotson, Walsh, Walz, and Bohnet. The lettermen
remaining for next year are Captain-elect Conover, Mayfield, Nott, Pegan,
Jenkins, Novack, Schneeberger, and XVagner. Coach Hollway was assisted this
year by Coaches Laverne Taylor and Willard Kurty.

HE SECOND TEAM this year proved to be an aggregation with plenty of
spirit and determination. A fairly long schedule of games was arranged,
some of which were with very strong teams. The first game with Chelsea was lost
by the overwhelming score of 63-0. The next opponent was Pinckney, who
tied the score at 6-6. A return game with Chelsea resulted in another loss, but
this time the score was only 49-0. Another return game with Pinckney and
one with Lincoln Park were lost by scores of 9-0 and 19-0 respectively. In
the last game with Ypsilanti the seconds found their stride and succeeded in
The scores indicate that the second team was a weak aggregation: this is
not surprising as its ranks were constantly being depleted to plug gaps in the
first team. Furthermore, the primary purpose of the second team is not to
H11 a schedule of games, but rather to act as a buffer for the first team.
The weekly scrimmages which the reserves offered the first stringers were in-
valuable in developing the school team, and the boys deserve much chedit
for the courage and pertinacity with which they stuck to a grueling and

The Leaders Corps
HE Leaders Corps is composed of a group of boys who are enrolled in the
physical education classes of the school and who are especially interested
and proficient in gymnastics. It was organized in 1920 by Mr. Olds, then head
of the Department of Physical Education, and has grown steadily ever since.
This year marked the enrollment of the largest Corps in its history, and as a re-
sult the group has reached its highest efficiency.
Preparation for the Work of the Corps is obtained in weekly meetings
in the school gymnasium, Where various gymnastic feats are practiced under
the supervision of the instructor, Mr. Drake. This practice is brought into use
when the members are asked to direct the gymnasium classes, in place of the
regular teacher. The Corps also functioned as a group this year when it
gave tumbling exhibitions between halves at the regular basketball games and
at the Washtenaw County Boy Scout banquet. An over-night hike Was also
enjoyed by members of the organization.
Other boys of the group in addition to the members in the above picture
Were Parke Sager, William Smith, Floyd Elsifor, Elmer Stadel, Douglas Nott,
Herbert Myer, Alvin Novack, Frederick Radke, and Fred Beeler.

HE OPENING GAME for Coach Hollway's cagers was with a fast and
determined Alumni team, which won 22-17. The next opponent was a
veteran Pontiac quintet which outscored the local five 21-16. The Purple
and White boys next trimmed Adrian with a score of 34-10. The "Big
of Lansing were next encountered on their home court by a brilliant
Arbor team which won 21-9. Jackson, destined to be State Champions,
came to Ann Arbor and won by one point, 17-16. The same week,
Central went home stinging under a 24-15 defeat. Ann Arbor was
defeated by Port Huron, 28-25. Then Lansing Eastern trounced the
cagers 25-11. At Battle Creek, Ann Arbor was beaten by the close
of 21-18. Next Bay City staved off an Ann Arbor rally to win by
one point, 11-10. Ypsilanti Central was next beaten by the Hollwaymen,
16-12. The closing game on the schedule resulted in a victory for Saginaw
Eastern, 17-10. In the district tournament at Jackson, Ann Arbor won her
first game, defeating Royal Oak 29-20. The following evening Jackson won
three thrilling overtime periods, 15-14.
Billy Pegan, captain-elect, was the bulwark of the team, being the only
letterman to play during the entire season. Davis and Walz were lost at mid-
season, and Brown, Wagner, and Tillotson were used to fill their places. Other
letter-winners were Novack, Nott, Zahner, and Mayfield. Tillotson is lost by

OACHED BY Mr. Hollway, the reserve basketball squad was rather suc-
cessful during the past season. Eleven games were played, which was one
of the largest schedules for the seconds in several years. Of this number four
were Won, and five were lost by small margins, leaving only two bad drub-
The team defeated St. Thomas High School, 19 to 155 Jackson Reserves,
15 to 14, an all-star interclass team, 23 to 22g and the Ypsilanti Reserves, 19
to 10. It lost to Northville, 17 to 13: Pontiac Reserves, 16 to 14, Milan, IS
to 143 Northville, 25 to 203 Chelsea, 32 to 10g and the Y.M.C.A. Juniors,
two games, 27 to 5, and 21 to 19 respectively.
The team served as a training camp for the regulars, since nearly the en-
tire first team was replaced from among the ranks of the reserves. Clark Boyd,
one of the outstanding performers of the team, is the only member to be lost
by graduation, which leaves a capable aggregation for next year and promises
a successful team. Liston Crull served as manager of this team as well as
of the first.

HEN the swimming team began its annual grind, the prospects for the
season were exceptionally good. As a result, one of the best teams
in the past five or six years was developed by Mr. Drake. It lost only one
meet of the six which it entered.
The first meet of the year with Ypsilanti Roosevelt High resulted in a
48-21 victory. Against Ypsilanti Central another victory was next registered,
44-15. At Jackson, the Purple and White natators won 45-24, for the first
time in three years. Meeting Lansing Eastern next, the team administered
a drubbing to the Capital City boys, 44-25. The meet with Lansing Central
proved to be the only snag of the year, it resulted in a defeat, 38-31. The
last victim was Pontiac, who was downed, 48-22. Total scores for the year were
Ann Arbor 260, opponents 145.
Paul Schaeffer was lost at mid-year because of ineligibility. Cthers of
the team to be lost by graduation are Captain Bovard, Gill, and Coryell. Ar-
thur Mosier, Kenneth Mack, and Alfred Wiefenbach were also letter winners
who are not in the picture above.

HEN COACH RYAN issued his call for track men in the fall, only
six letter-men were available: Floyd Wakefield, Ira Williams, Peter
Zahner, Alfred Wagner, Elmer Mahlke, and Hilton Ponto. Of the many new
men who responded, twelve others Won their letters.
Four indoor meets were held during the Winter season, of which the boys
won two and lost two. They defeated Fordson 66 to 26 and Dearborn S1 to
33, but were in turn defeated by the strong aggregations from Toledo Scott
High School and Detroit Eastern by the respective scores of 69 to 17 and 55
In the spring the boys met and defeated their traditional enemy, Jack-
son, by a score of 77 to 48 on April 27. Other spring meets which they
entered were the University of Michigan Invitational Meet on May 11, and
the State Track Meet at East Lansing May 25.
Among the events in which the team engaged were the 40-yard dash,
the 40-yard high hurdles, the 45-yard low hurdles, the 220, the 440, the half-
mile, the mile, and the shot put, the pole vault, and the broad jump. By
graduation Leonard Coryell, Roy Goulder, Ira Williams, Elmer Mahlke, and
Hilton Ponto will be missing from next year's team, but much good material
is left as the nucleus for a strong aggregation.

The Gymnastic Team
N 1921 a gymnastic team was organized by Mr. Lloyd Olds in the Ann Ar-
bor High School, which was the first school in the state to form such a team.
Since 1923 state meets have been held annually, three of which have been won
by the Ann Arbor team. Starting this year with three members of last year,s
group, Coach Lloyd Gates of the physical education department developed a
Worthy squad of five. The members were picked from the best material in
the Leaders Corps, which is coached by Mr. Drake.
Entering only one meet, namely the annual Interscholastie Tournament,
held under the auspices of the Michigan State Normal College at Ypsilanti,
the team captured fourth place. This was an improvement over last year,
when the team won fifth place. Much credit is due to Mr. Gates for his excel-
lent coaching, and to the members of the team for their unceasing efforts to de-
velop themselves physically. The members from last year's team were Rodes
Clay, Leo Silver, and Hilton Ponto. Of these Leo Silver and Hilton Ponto
will graduate, leaving but three members to organize next year,s team.

HE 1928 SEASON witnessed the largest turn-out for cross country that
the school has ever had. As a result, the season was a fairly successful
one, although there were only two letter-men, Captain Gouldcr and Floyd
Wakeheld. For their first meet the Purple and White harriers were the guests
of Dearborn. The opener proved to be too great an obstacle for Coach Ryan's
men, who lost by a score of 23 to 31. Servis, finishing in second position,
led the Ann Arbor squad. The next meet was with Pontiac at Ann Arbor.
The visiting hill-and-dalers were easily defeated by a score of 37 to 17. Servis
was the first to cross the line. The next encounter was the regional meet at
Fordson. Ann Arbor placed second, while Hoyt Servis ranked third in in-
dividual scoring. Following was the state meet at Ypsilanti under the aus-
pices of the Michigan State Normal College. Here Ann Arbor placed sixth
among a large number of strong teams. Servis again led the squad, placing
seventh, finishing only twenty-four seconds behind the winner.
Those who received letters were Captain Goulder, Wakeheld, Swenson,
Servis, Tuthill, and Coryell. Of these only Goulder and Coryell are Seniors,
thus leaving a strong nucleus for next year's team.

VERYBODY KNOWS how much "pep', a good, rousing cheer adds to the
enjoyment of a game, and players know that they can do better Work if a
cheering crowd is behind them. Ann Arbor High School has long recognized
these facts and for years there have been cheer-leaders of sorts. But not until
this year was the problem of obtaining good cheer-leaders really faced. Early
in the year the Athletic Board, at the instigation of the Student Council, took
action to provide for organized cheer-leaders and issued a call for tryouts.
From these tryouts the boys in the above picture were selected. The first
semester John Van Akkeren, who was graduated in February, was also a
member of the squad.
These boys could always be depended upon to be present at football, basket-
ball, and baseball games, various athletic meets, pep meetings, and occasionally
at assemblies. When the entire squad appeared at one time they amused the
crowd by their concerted antics, thereby eliciting hearty cheers. They looked
attractive in their white uniforms and were a decided addition to the occasions
which they graced. The stimulus which has been given to this activity by the
action of the Athletic Board and the Student Council will undoubtedly carry
over into next year. A larger staff of cheer-leaders with greater experience
should be the result.

OR THE FIRST TIME since 1913, Ann Arbor High School was repre-
sented this year by a baseball team. There has been frequent agitation for
such an organization, but for some reason or other, it never crystalized into ac-
tion. However, this year Stanton Ware, a Junior, furnished the necessary stimu-
lus, and by his initial efforts started the ball rolling which finally effected a
team. In order to organize, funds were necessary to purchase equipment. These
were obtained by means of a tag-day in the high school, and from loyal busi-
ness men of Ann Arbor. Mr. Drake developed an excellent team of eighteen
men. The opening game, which was played at West Park, resulted in a 6 to S
victory over Fordson on April 26. The rest of the schedule included St. Thomas
School, Ann Arbor, Tecumseh High School, Ypsilanti Central, Battle Creek
High School, Pontiac High School, Ypsilanti Roosevelt School, and Plymouth
The boys played the following positions: pitcher, Harry Tillotson, Charles
Menefee, Lawrence Pratt, Nelson Pepper, catchers, Roger Brown, Douglas Nottg
first base, Grier Bovardg second base, Stanton Ware, William Pegan, James
Conover, shortstop, Frederick Beelerg third base, Leonard Olsen, David Dow,
fielders, Robert Mayfield, Charles Cope, Carl Pagel, Neil Hurley, and Arnold
The success of the season will do much to establish che sport as a regular
feature of the athletic program, and it should take its place with the major sports
sponsored by the physical education department of the Ann Arbor High School.

The Girls' Athletic Club
HE Girls, Athletic Club has been very active this year, as in previous
years, and the membership has increased rapidly. In this club the girls
are taught the rules of good sportsmanship on the athletic field or wherever
athletic contests are held. They receive these instructions under the super-
vision of Miss Youngquist. Meetings are held the first Wednesday afternoon
in each month, and the girls also have various hikes and picnics during the
year. The sports managers control the various after-school activities: basketball,
volleyball, track, hockey, baseball, and tennis, all of which have proved very
successful, especially the inter-class tournaments. At the annual banquet
held in February, Lucille Gauss received an A.A., the highest athletic honor
which can be awarded to a girl in the Ann Arbor High School, and the tennis
championship cup. Several skating and sleigh-ride parties have been held
throughout the year, to which the girls have responded enthusiastically.

The Girls' Leaders Corps
HE Girls' Leaders Corps was organized in 1924 by Miss Donahue, former
physical director for girls. Its purpose is to promote good sportsmanship
and physical development. Girls who show themselves especially proficient and
reliable in gymnastic work are taken into the club. They must be able to con-
duct classes and are called upon to do so during the year. They are instructed
in conducting relays, marches, games, and apparatus work by Miss Youngquist,
the physical director. Meetings are held each Thursday evening in the gym-
The club has grown rapidly in the past year, and boasts a large membership.
The girls are more or less preparing themselves for physical education as a pro-
fession, and must become prohcient in all gymnastic lines. Honors are awarded
those having the highest number of points at che end of the year, and each girl
strives to get as many as possible. Points are awarded for participation and
proficiency in all branches of athletic activity open for girls. In previous years,
the Corps has made public appearances, but none has been made this year.
Much credit is due Miss Youngquist, the faculty adviser, for the activity
and interest which have been shown and the progress which has been made.

HE intramural activities of the Ann Arbor High School are under the
supervision of Mr. Drake and Miss Youngquist, members of the physical
education department. Three hundred boys have taken part in the following
sports the past year: speedball, during the months of September and October,
swimming, indoor track, wrestling, and basketball through the months of
November, December, January, and February, and baseball, track, and tennis
in the spring.
At the end of the speedball schedule the Juniors and the Seniors were
tied, and the extra game to decide the championship was won by the Juniors.
The swimming meet was won by the Seniors in a very close and exciting race,
which was not decided until the last event. Indoor track was won by the
Juniors, with the Sophomores second.
Wrestling, which is a new intramural sport in this high school, had forty-
two contestants. Hilton Ponto, Senior, Won the unlimited class, William Pe-
gan, Junior, the 155-pound class, Arthur Mosier, Junior, the 142-pound classg
Leo Silver, Senior, the 130-pound weight, while the lightweight title was won
by Charles Duffren, a Sophomore.
Basketball drew the largest number of boys, sixty playing during the
schedule. Each class had a light-weight and a heavy-weight team. The
Juniors won the light-weight title, while the Seniors Won the heavy-Weight
Twenty-four boys played in a tennis tournament during the spring
months. Each class was represented by a baseball team, playing a schedule
of three games a week during the month of May. The interclass meet was held
at the annual field day May 31, about thirty boys taking part.
The girls, sports consisted of hockey and tennis in the fall, volley ball
and basketball in the winter, and baseball in the spring. Thirty-eight girls
turned out for hockey, the Sophomores won the championship, while the
Seniors ended in second place. Peggy White was manager for the Sophomores,
Harriet Stout for the Juniors, and Lucille Gauss for the Seniors. The tennis
tournament, which could not be completed last fall because of bad weather,
left Esther Kunkle, Sarah Pierce, and Jane Cissel in the lead.
Volley ball attracted thirty-nine girls, the Seniors winning the champion-
ship with the Juniors second. Esther Gauss was chosen captain for the Sopho-
mores, Harriet Stout for the Juniors, and Lucile Gauss for the Seniors. Twen-
ty-eight girls came out for basketball, the Juniors winning first place and the
Seniors second. An all-star team was selected to play the Alumnae and won
22 to 12. Basketball captains were Esther Gauss for the Sophomores, Maxine
Morrison for the Juniors, and Helen Bird for the Seniors.
Spring baseball enrolled thirty-three girls, Esther Gauss was chosen cap-
tain for the Sophomores, Thelma Marquardt for the Juniors, and Lucile Gauss
for the Seniors. At the close of the season an all-star team played the Alumnae.
