To Miss GERTRUDE T. BREED
E, the editors of the forty-fifth volume of the
Omega, respectfully dedicate this book, in ap-
preciation of her untiring and worth-while
accomplishments lmoth as a teacher and an adviser. It
is also fitting that she who is such an appreciative schol-
ar of Virgil should receive the dedication of this book
which conlmeniorates his anniversary. There has grown
for her a kindly affection that will always make her
a part of us as we look hack on our high school days.

IME h a s rolled along
again, taking with him
another school year and
another Senior class. Again
the Omega staff presents an
annual to take its place among
the other books that have gone
heforeg to bear some criticism
and perhaps receive some
praiseg and to stand as a sym-
bol of the efforts of the class
of 1931 and a memory of the
year that has just passed.

HE Ann Arbor High School this year graduated more than 200 Seniors.
To pilot them through the year, the class chose Russell Dunnaback for
president, Billie Griiiiths for vice-president, Clarence Markham for secre-
tary-treasurer, and Bruce Dick and Sarah Pierce for representatives. Under their
efhcient management the class has been most successful.
The scholastic standard of the class of '31 has always been upheld by such
individual geniuses as Clarence Markham, julia Ann VVilson, Vera Newbrough,
Mary Lunny, Margaret Major, Ross Mayfield, Ruth Coles, Billie Faulkner, Billie
Griffiths, and Sarah Pierce.
The Senior class has had many athletic luminaries. Those who made the
first team in football were Oliver Cope, Alfred Schneeberger, John Schwemmin,
Boyd Brown, Lawrence Stein, Peter Raftopulos, and Arthur Carstens, while
Neil Cope captained the reserves. Peter Raftopulos, Richard Lundgren. Robert
Mathis, Boyd Brown, and Russell Dunnaback shone in basketball, with XVood1'ow
VVard and Richard VVhite sharing honors on the second team. Ross Mayfield
alone upheld the prestige of the Seniors on the swimming team. Those Seniors
who formed a nucleus for Coach Ryanis track and cross-country teams were Hoyt
Servis, Herman Welke, Harold Gooding, Justin Cline, and Maxwell Miles. Dan
Cadagan and Justin Cline performed ably as cheer-leaders.
Billie Faulkner and Abe Zwerdling represented the school in debating, while
Madalene Rabbe won honors in oratory. In dramatics Bruce Dick, Billie Faulkner,

Pierce made names for themselves. The girl athletes were Carol Jones, Betty
VVickett, Kathryn Bevis, and Sarah Pierce.
Vera Newbrough was general chairman of the Girls' Fancy Dress Party, and
Frieda Fiegel had charge of the Senior stunt.
For Class Day the Seniors chose the following to represent them: oration,

The Class of Nineteen VlFlbi1rty:VTFwo
N THE fall of 1929, three hundred students entered the Ann Arbor High
, School. Among them, Winifred Bell, Elnor Coles, Margaret Hiscock, Kenneth
Mosier, Catherine Stitt, and Raymond Vogel have been outstanding as scholars.
Raymond Vogel, Edward Schneider, Liston Crull, Loyal Crawford, Henry
Darling, Ronald T upper, james Hickey, Laurence Stein, Howard DeHaan, Walter
Kuckelman and Creel Conover all won places on the first football team, while
other juniors formed the nucleus of the second team. When Coach Taylor called
for basketball material, Ronald Tupper, William Smith, Walter Kuckelman, and
James Hickey were made first team men, while Louis Wenger, Woodrow Malloy,
and Henry Darling proved valuable on the second team. Francis Robinson, Kenyon
Brigham, Robert Pierson, Gordon Allan, Clarence Jones, Alfred Wagner, Henry
Darling, Karl Krueger, and Loyal Crawford were active in cross country and
track. Captain Robert Movverson, Howard DeHaan, and Robert Hall greatly aided
Coach Drake on the swimming team. Junior girls who participated in athletics
are Marsinah Pierce, Betty Greve, Rosemary Klug, Merta Laing, Helen Busch,
Margaret Hale, Dorothy Lyndon, Ruth Rich, Mary Kunkle, and Edith McCotter.
Margaret Hiscock and Clair Gorton, as editor and business manager of the
Optimist respectively, were assisted by Norman Smith, Gerda Stanger, Tom Weller,
Marian Hollister, Marsinah Pierce, Edith McCotter, Betty Greve, Catherine Stitt,
William Polk, Francis Robinson, and Vlfalter Kneer. Clifford Greve and William
Smith acted as junior assistant business managers of the Omega, Alice Humbert
and Alta Haab were junior assistant editors, while Calvin Foster was on the art
staff. Winifred Bell was a member of the debating team, while Alice Humbert,
Harlan Ritze, and Francis Robinson went out for oratory. George Burke was a
member of the cheer-leading squad. Under the leadership of Margaret Rogers,
the Junior girls carried off the prize at the Girls' Fancy Dress Party.
The class felt a great loss in the sudden death of one of its most loved and
best known members, Ronald Tupper. Ronald was widely known as a football,
basketball, and track star. He represented the best type of young manhood, and
the class feels that it has lost one of its finest members.

The Staff of the 1931 Omega feels that so 1nany compositions of literary
worth have been produced in the new Creative XVriting class and the English
classes this year, that a permanent record of some of them should be kept. There-
fore, the poetry section of the last year's book has been enlarged to include some

The rhythmical dipping of oars of the N orthmen
Announce the approach of the conquerors bold.
The sun glitters brightly, reflected from weapons,
From spear tips and javelins burnished like gold.
As graceful as swallows the ships skim the Waters,
The ligurehead sea-horses, sprinkled with spray,
Leap proudly, defiantly over the sea foam,
Q'er silver tipped wave-crests in Normandy bay.

W'hirling in a wild abandon.

Deep eyes wide in haunted face.

F YOU wanted a door fixed, you called on Jerry. If there were ashes to be
carried away, Jerry would do it. A furnace to clean out, a lawn to trim, Jerry
did it. In fact, jerry could be called on to do almost anything around the house,
from fixing an electric socket to washing the dishes. A typical "Jack of all trades,
master of nonef, A
Not tall, not short. Not very fat, and certainly not thin. Just an ordinary
fellow, poorly dressed but always clean, with wrinkles worn in his face by care
and worry, and yet with an ever-ready cheery smile, and a most delightful habit of
saying 'KHowdyH to all the kids on the street.
Jerry was really not old, only about thirty-two or three, but in those thirty
odd years he had learned the art of living. I-Ie had learned that a care-free, happy-
go-lucky fellow is more likely to get the odd job than the whiner. He had found
pleasure in knowing that his wife and two-year-old baby had good, substantial
food, that there was a roof over their heads, and an insurance policy, small, to be
sure, but a policy nevertheless, on which the premiums were kept up only by stead-
fast and persistent stinting on Ierry's part.
The last time I saw jerry was one bright summer morning a good many years
ago, when he came to mend the screen in one of our windows. VVhile he was
working, I, as usual, left what I was doing and went to watch him and to hear
him talk. I loved to see how quickly his big steady hands could fix whatever needed
his attention, and marveled at the fact that he never seemed to be paying any
notice to what he was doing, but could tell me all about his little Peggy and what
she did and how pretty she was - and in no time his work would be done.
My Mother and Dad liked to talk to Jerry, too, for they said that a half hour
in his company left its effect on you for the rest of the day and made you laugh
and stick out your chin when the cake in the oven fell, or when a deed you had
depended on didn't go through. And jerry never left one of these delightful little
visits without a bag of cookies or a little pie for wee Peggy.
This morning, instead of Daddy's going out and sitting on the steps in the
glorious sunshine with Jerry, Jerry went into the cool shade of the living room,
for Daddy was sick, and was confined to the big easy chair inside. As a matter of
course, conversation turned to health,-what it meant to a person, how thankful
we should all be who had only occasional little sick spells, and how good it was
to be just living.
Turning to Jerry, Daddy said in a bantering voice, "You don't look very sick,
do you, Jerry P- I guess you're good for another fifty years anyway."
A - - fr
Q illlllllllllllllllllllE omaha gil lllllllllllllllllllll
Then the most astonishing thing happened, for instead of replying jokingly,
Jerry sat staring blindly at his hat, a frightened, beaten man. Before Daddy had
time to ask what was wrong, or what he had said that he shouldnft have, jerry
had changed again, and though his face was white and his hands trembled a little,
he was his old self. Looking at Daddy with a little crooked smile, he said, UI kind
of wish you l1adn't said that, sir. You see, I was up to see Doctor james the other
day, and, well, he-by what he said I've not got so long to live as it appears."
Then followed a lengthy and detailed description, half of which I couldnlt
understand, of how his white blood corpuscles had somehow overwhelmed his red
ones, and there was a dreadful turmoil in his inwards. At the most -Ierry had six
months left to him. Six months that might have been full of pleasure had he not
known-but, knowing, six months of fear and dread and torture. When he had
finished there was a moment of silence in the room, broken only by my sniffing.
Soon Jerry stood up and turning to Daddy, held out his hand and said in a
rather husky voice, "XVell-we've all got to die some time, you know, and my
turn might as well come now as later. But it is hard to leave Mary and the kidf'
Then, taking a deep breath and straightening his broad shoulders with a shrug,
he said in a changed tone, "I'm sorry I took so much of your time,-should have
known better. If that window doesn't suit you, sir, just let me know and Illl Hx
it up. Goodbye, kiddumsf, he said, turning to me, "and be good."
Then picking up his tools from the porch and stepping gaily down the steps
whistling a happy popular tune, he left, stopping only to lift and comfort a sobbing
and dusty little neighbor boy who had fallen on the sidewalk.
That was the last I saw of jerry.

I wonder which is best when old age comes:
To sit and quietly wait deathg
Gr wait it standing up and fighting.
To dream and live in memories, and sleepg
Ur to be awake, alert and active, to the end.
I have watched old men
Go walking down the street,
Some wander self-enrapt and slow,
And others with a trembling eager tread
And bright clear eyes.
I wonder which are happiest at the last,
And which has been the braver-

FTER-DINNER speaking is an old institution, probably originating in the
twelfth century as a means of getting even with one's personal enemies
by telling jokes to cause them embarrassment. After-dinner speaking has
changed but little through the ages, and its purpose still remains that of entertain-
ment, that is, for the listener. Anyone who has at one time or another consented
to respond to a toast will know why I say 'ffor the listener." About the best way
to ruin a beautiful banquet and a lovely dinner is to have to deliver an after-
dinner address. Your mind is tied to your notes. You wonder if the people will
laugh at your poor jokes -they don't seem so funny now. You canlt taste your
food, you can't laugh with the crowd, you can't enter into the conversation. You
squirm about in your hard chair - you're just plain uneasy.
Some questions arise in connection with this subject of after-dinner speeches.
VVhy after-dinner speeches, and not before-dinner speeches? Why after-dinner
and not after-breakfast? VVhat kind of a dinner and how much is conducive to
the proper mood for both speaker and listener? In answering the first, I might
say that the reason they are after-dinner and not before, is because a full stomach
is supposed to be conducive to loquaciousness and comprehension.
At the close of the banquet, the jolly toastmaster takes the floor. He calls
the assemblage to order by rapping vigorously on one of the dainty banquet glasses
with the handle of his knife. After wise-cracking for some time, he calls upon one
of the speakers. The speaker glances at his half-eaten meal and at his thrice-
emptied water glass, and having wiped the perspiration from his hands and brow,
rises and begins thus: "Ladies and gentlemen, unaccustomed as I am to public
speaking,--U This without once glancing at the hastily penciled notes daintily
concealed in the perspiring palm of his left hand. After this, if another complete
thought escapes without the aid of the notes, it is an accident.
But the foregoing is a description of an amateur. The guest speaker is about
to be called on and the toastmaster lays himself out to consume most of the guest
speakerls alloted time in his introduction. But alloted time or not alloted time,
Mr. Guest Speaker has not come clear across the township to be cheated out of
his say, and so he launches forth on his supreme effort.
Now that women as well as men smoke, the banquet hall may be filled with
an impenetrable blue haze in just half the time it would take the men alone to do
it. and if you are far enough away from the speaker, you may doze unnoticed,
stupilied by food, smoke, and speech.
Once in a while one does run across a very good speaker. and these rare
occasions make all the dross and drivel worth while. The law of averages proves
that if you drape yourself around enough banquet tables, and do not sleep through
too many after-dinner speeches, you are bound sooner or later to hear a Chauncey

Breathe deep of the pure free airg

And my thoughts will soar clean and clear.

The winter night was black as the cloak of Pluto,
But itsgloom was shattered
By the friendlysmile of the Watching moon-
Supreme monarch of the night.
And from the cold grey of early dawn
The pallid waning moon peered faintly down.
Hanging low on the horizon
He struggled bravely to hold his own
Against his rival of the East.
But at last, in a mantle of rose and gold
The haughty sun burst forth
Resplendent in his glory, triumphant.
And slowly the dying moon sank
To hide himself in the ignominy of defeat.

My mortal day was short:
Yet 1ny entire tale is my life.
It was on a certain day during the midsummer.
The glowing sun sank low, disappearing into her depths.
My colorful, spotted body cooled.
The twilight impelled my instinct to seek shelter nigh.
I felt a forlorn creature,
But I clung beneath a leaf which hung on a lowly twig.
Mother nature was murmuring
Her secret melody which enwrapped my spirit.
In the darkness of the night
The gentle breeze comforted my exhausted being,
Soothingly my weary, clinging body.
My wings enfolded themselves and warmed me.
t Suddenly a beam of light stirs and dazzles my wakeful spirit.
It flutters my wings-my eyes are illuminated by this gleaming
My Spirit wakes forth from its retreat.
It rouses me out from the slumber of the night.
The Spirit dashes my body, it gnaws me.
Fluttering my wings faster.
It is my salvation, the beamlight there.
It is blind joy which spreads in the force of my life.
Rapidly in ecstasy I dash and dance endlessly around this en-
It enraptures me, magnetically.
I cannot resist. An omnipotent force
Impels and pervades me with a desire to be amidst this glowing
Still it hastens my spirit, dashing me into this burning Hame.
Never is it satiated or quenched until my wings and segments
I drop with dazzled joy, mingled with excruciating tormenting
During my torments my eyes still glare
As they stare at the bright, alluring flame.
A dream creeps over me, enfolding me,
That my spirit has mingled with the flame.

The Seinnioir' play
HE Senior play of the class of 1931 was a great success. It was presented
on the evenings of April 7 and 8 in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre of the
Michigan League Building, and repeated April 30 for the entertainment of
the Schoolmasters, Club when it assembled in Ann Arbor for its annual convention.
The superior nature of the Senior play was largely due to the ability of Miss
Berenice Hannan of the English Department to choose members of the Senior
class best fitted to the parts. The story chosen for production was 'fThe Charm
School," a light comedy by Alice Duer White and Robert Milton that presented
many amusing situations which kept the interest of the audience at a peak
throughout the performance. The characters were so well cast that it would be
unfair to mention any one as being superior to any other.
The story was about a young man, Austin Bevans, who inherited a girls'
school from his maiden aunt. Austin had some ideas of his own concerning the
education of pretty young girlsg he considered a course in charm decidedly more
essential than Greek or Latin. No doubt the idea was an excellent one, but he
took some of his jobless pals down to the school to help him in his new enterprise,
and the presence of eligible young men among so many lovely girls was bound to
cause complications. The climax was reached when the professors fell victims
to the wiles of their students, and even the invincible Principal Bevans was unable
to hold aloof to Elise's charm. Although the school was a failure as far as practical
education went, it produced a Senior class of charming girls--and after all, Ha
womanis greatest virtue is a charming manner."
The superior directing of Miss Hannan, an all-star cast, and the excellent
stage facilities afforded by the Mendelssohn Theatre made possible a production
that will long be remembered in the Ann Arbor High School as a challenge to

H HE GHOST STORY,,, a one-act comedy by Booth Tarkington, was presented
in assembly March I7 by the Touchstone Club. The scene was laid in the
home of an extremely popular girl who was trying to encourage a decidedly
bashful young man to propose to her. He evaded the question until the "gang"
came, and then he told a most gruesome story to scare them all away so
that he could be alone with the girl. His story resulted in a fake fainting Ht by the
young lady. He was carried off by the crowd but returned alone to press his suit.
Finally, with the help of the Hgangn at the window, he asked her to marry him.

HE social highlight of the school term, as far as the girls are concerned,
blazed brightly this year in spite of the fact that it was held on Friday, the
thirteenth of February. The grand march was a gay spectacle with its old-
fashioned misses, gypsies, pirates, and little girls.
First in the course of the evening's entertainment came the teachers' stunt,
which was a most amusing and clever adaptation of the daily funny sheet. The
Senior stunt, under the direction of Frieda Fiegel, was a picture of the course of
a girls thoughts in an evening supposedly devoted to study. An unusual feature
of this year's party was a stunt given by the mothers. The alumnae stunt, of which
Margaret Norton was in charge, was a snappy version of college life. The Junior
stunt, under the leadership of Margaret Rogers, captured the much-coveted cup,
and was a hilarious imitation of the family out for a Sunday afternoon drive. The
Sophomore girls, led by Hildegarde Gassner, gave a pleasing skit from "Alice in
Laura Burnett. who wore a lovely black Spanish gown, carried off the first
prize for the 1nost complete costume. Betty Ayres, who was dressed in a white
satin creation, was chosen the hest old-fashioned girl, and Sarah Pierce was judged
the funniest in her characterization of Topsy.

llli Ann Arbor High School liand is steadily becoming of increasing value
to the school in general. This organization during the past ,year played in
assembly, for all of the home debates. and at the annual concert in january.
In addition, the band rendered its support at all of the home games during
both football and basketball seasons, as Well as accompanying the team to jackson
on Thanksgiving Day. During the football season, marked improvement was noted
in marching, letter formations being attempted for the Iirst time. It is hoped that
coats may be added to the otherwise complete uniforms, thus giving the needed
final touch to the appearance of the performers.
The band is slightly larger than last year, comprising forty-five members in all.
But the greatest improvement lies in the quality of the musicians. This is doubt-
less due, in large measure, to the results of the band movement in the lower grades.
Tappan and Mack -lunior lligh Schools both have bands, and in all probability one
will shortly be organized at jones hlunior High School, There is even a first grade
band at Donovan School. Nr. Champion is endeavoring to stimulate growth in
the Woodwind section, which is composed of the piccolo, the flute. the oboe, and
the bassoon, which acts in the band as the string instruments do in the orchestra.

Hlf most significant change in the orchestra this year is that live string-
basses have been added and four violas used for the hrst time in several
years. Out of fifty members in all, twenty-live play string instruments.

The Boys? Glare Club
HIRTY-SEVEN boys constitute this year's Boys' Glee Club, which re-
hearsed twice each week during school hours under the direction of Miss
Higbee, with Harry McCain as accompanist. In addition the boys met
once Weekly in combination with the girls for mixed chorus work.
The Glee Club has made various public appearances during the year, singing
for the Parent-'lleacher Association in October, for the XVomanls Association and
Rotary Club in the fall in combination with the girls, and at the Christmas program.
At the annual concert, january 20, the boys sang 4'Song of the Jolly Rogerf' a
sea song by Chudleigh-Candish, "I Got Shoesf' a negro spiritual by Freeley, and
"The Gay Troubadour," by NVellesley. They also entered the state contest in May.
Don Litteer, Everett Champney, tenors, and XVilliam liluettner, bass. were
chosen to represent Ann Arbor High School in the National High School Chorus
in Detroit in February.
The time that is spent during the Week in practicing for the glee club is
certainly very much worth while, and Miss Higbee should especially be given credit
for the Work she has done with the boys.

During the year the club sang in assembly, for the Kiwanis Club, and
for the Womans Association and the Rotary Club with the boys in mixed chorus.
At the annual concert in january the girls gave the following selections: "Swing
Low, Sweet Chariot," by liurleigh, "Dawn," by Curran, and "The Two Clocksf'
by Rogers, in addition to singing jointly with the boys in "Listen to the Lambs,"
by Dett, and "Chillen, Come on Homef' by Cain.
Two girls were selected to represent Ann Arbor lfligh School in the National
High School Chorus in Detroit in February: Elsie Pruner, second soprano, and
Dorothy Crimston, alto.
Miss Higbee should bc complimented for the line work she has done this
year with the girls. The school is certainly proud of what they have accomplished
in furnishing entertainment and winning a name for the high school in the musical

a successful year in fullilling its primary reason for functioning, that is.
to allow the student body, through its chosen representatives, to have a
voice in the school government.
.Xniong the niost notable aehievenients of the Student Council this year have
been the maintenance of an information desk in li corridor, the presentation of
the motion picture, i'XYith Byrd at the South Pole." and the serving of lunches to
visiting teams after games and debates.
The Student Council is composed of fifteen niemlmers elected from the entire
student hodv. The Council nieets on alternate 'llhursdays at the noon hour, when

Vllqlhe ,Atfzlhllettiic Board
HE Athletic Board of the Ann Arbor High School, organized by the Board
of Education in 1894, has the distinction of being the only institution of its
kind in the high schools of the state to exercise complete control over all
matters pertaining to athletics. The functions of the board include the arrange-
ment of schedules, awarding of letters upon recommendation of the coaches,
supervision of home games, and management of financial affairs.
The board is composed of six members: the principal, two members of the
faculty elected by that body, and three members of the Student Council, chosen
by it and representing their respective classes. Mr, Jocelyn for many years has
been unanimously voted chairman of the organization. Miss McMullen this year
took the place of Mr. Thomas Drake. It has long been a rule of the organization
that at least one girl should have a place on the Athletic Board.
The board was forced to employ measures of strict economy during the past
year, because of lean returns in the athletic field. Thus it has been perhaps less
active than it has been in the past and doubtless will be in the future.

exercises full authority over all extra-curricular activities with the exception

to various organizations to hold parties or other outside entcrtainnients. and to plan
school parties. The principal, two faculty nienilmers elected by the faculty and a
representative from each of the three classes appointed hy the Student Council,
compose the coniniittee.
The N. .X. B. inadc a thorough investigation of the extra-curricular activities
of each student in the fall. Those students carrying' too much outside work were
warned hy the investigating coznniittee and requested to drop some of their outside
activities. The program of school parties for the year, with committees made up
of faculty lnenihcrs and students, was planned by the hoard. Due to its wise
choice of connnittees. the parties of the year were unusually successful and more
popular than in the past.

HE Optimist, weekly publication of the Ann Arbor High School, has enjoyed
a highly successful year under the tactful guidance of Mrs. Elsie Hauswald,
who succeeded Mr. Drake as faculty adviser. Try-outs were held in Sep-
tember, at which time forty enthusiastic students turned out. Margaret Hiscock
was chosen editor-in-chief, thus claiming the honor of being the first girl to hold
the office in the history of the Optimist, and Clair Gorton was named business
manager. He was later succeeded by W'alter Kneer. The staff numbers forty-nine
student members in all.
The Optimist has entered into a flourishing newspaper exchange this year,
gaining many helpful ideas from other school papers. Two innovations of the year
have been the society column and personals. -Also two six-page issues have been
published, namely, the Thanksgiving' and the Christmas numbers. The usual issue
is made up of four pages. During the second semester the upper staff tried out a
new system, whereby the members have a free period each afternoon in the week
for Optimist Work, thus greatly lessening work after school hours.
ln October about hfty-five attended a banquet given in the cafeteria by the
Optimist for the Omega and the junior high school publication staffs. Mr. Granville
acted as toastmaster, while short speeches were given by Billie Griffiths, represent-
ing the Omega, Carl Breed from the Mack School staff, and Mrs. Elsie Hauswald
and Margaret I-liscock from the Optimist. Mr. Oakes of Jones School gave an
interesting talk on the time-element in newspaper work.
Members of the Optimist staff entered a national contest sponsored by "Quill
and Scroll," the high school journalistic honor society. Fields of competition
included news, advertisements, editorials, features, headline writing, copy reading,
vocabulary, and current newspaper reading. Two editorials, those of Jeanette
Purchis and Margaret Hiscock, were selected to enter the contest. The topic was
"The Character Traits Most Necessary to Success in High Schoolf' Margaret's
editorial on "Dependability" was given third place among the 'Michigan entries.
Mrs. Elsie Hauswald, Margaret Hiscock, and Norman Smith attended the
National Scholastic Press Association Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, in December
as representatives of the Optimist. They returned with much valuable information
concerning journalism, as discussed by well-informed nationally-known speakers.
On March 7, Margaret Hiscock, Marsinah Pierce, Revilo Mosier, and Betty Greve
journeyed to Flint to attend the annual convention for high school journalists in
Southern Michigan at Flint Central High School. The purpose of the convention
was to improve high school publications.

OR the past forty-five years the Seniors have published an annual. This year
the book has been edited by a staff of sixteen members, of whom eleven are
Seniors and five juniors. The staff is as follows: editor-in-chief, Billie
Griffiths, assistant editor, Sarah Pierce, business manager, Bruce Dick: Junior
business managers, Clifford Greve, Williaiii Smith, Junior editors, Alice Humbert,
Alta Haabg creative writing, Phyllis Lutesg quotations, Vera Newbroughg dramat-
ics, Marie Abbotg organizations, Billie Faulkner, activities, Esther Theurerg boys'
athletics, Clarence Markham, calendar, Cora Shoecraftg humor, Richard XYhiteg
art, Virginia Reutterg assistant art, Calvin Foster.
As in the past three years, the Detroit Service Engraving Company has done
the engraving. The art theme is based on Roman history. in celebration of the
two thousand and hrst anniversary of the birth of Virgil, the great Roman poet.
The division sheets of the book were drawn from events which Virgil has described
in his Aencad, and follow the story of Aeneas' travels, while the rest of the art
work, such as the Hy-leaf and border to the pages, express the spirit of Roman
art in keeping with the general theme. Last year the engraving companyls artist
provided working drawings for the entire theme, but this year all of the art work
has been done by the art classes.
Several new features have been added to the book. There is a new arrange-
ment of snap shots, a section which contains some of the work done in the
Creative XVriting class which was organized in February, while an added attrac-
tion was the possibility for the owner to have his name on the cover of his book.
This year the photography was done by the Randall-Armstrong, Dey, Sped-
ding, and Rentschler studios. In the past, the Armstrong Studio has served as the
official photographer, but it was thought best this year to let the Seniors have their
choice of the four.
Last year the book was printed out of town for the first time, but this year
the contract has again been awarded to the Ann Arbor Press. Praise as well as
thanks should be given to Miss Emery and her office practice class for their help
in preparing the copy, and to Mrs. Sellards and her art class who did so much
on the art work. Also Hoyt Servis and Ronald XVolf deserve thanks for taking
the snapshots for the "Hall of Fame." For the Hrst time in the history of the
Omega, on the opening campaign day 600 copies of the book were sold out, so
this year's book has established a new record.
To Mr. Robert Granville, faculty adviser, should go the real credit, for his
good judgment, hard work, and patience make the Omega a real success.

N l909 the Board of Education was host at a banquet to those who excelled
in football. Since that time a banquet has been given each year for all students
who have distinguished themselves in scholarship, public speaking, dramatics,
music, art, journalism, athletics, and attendance. The twenty-second annual banquet
was held December 5, IQ3O. Much credit for the success of this banquet should
go to Miss Robison, Miss Parry. and Mrs. Ensminger, who valiantly headed the
program committee, while Mr. Stitt, Mrs. Sellards, and Mr. Buell laboriously
arranged the decorations. Also the Sophomore girls should be thanked for serving
as waitresses at the banquet.
The entertainment merited the untiring efforts of the program committee.
Each speaker used a proverb as the basis of his talk and the program progressed

boys became interested in organizing a club for themselves. This was in 1926,
and since that time the boys have been going to XYashington annually. This
year's club has made Fine progress and unlike the boys last year they are having a
page in the Omega as a permanent record of their work.
To make money the boys parked cars at W'ines Field during football games.

to Xliashington with a group of friends, it is an excellent opportunity for any boy
who wishes to travel. The trip also gives the boys a chance to see the federal
government at work.

HIC Science Club was originally organized for chemistry students, but during
its ten years of activity its membership has been increased to include all
students of every science course offered.
Due to the fact that the group consists of students whose interests are divided,
the programs were made as general as possible and were concerned with the
practical science ot the day. Many of the meetings were open to all students and
were largely attended. The programs, including a talk by Professor Hobbs of the
University. the annual glass-blowing demonstration, and the usual trip to the
Campus Observatory, proved very interesting. ,Xlthough the club is not a social
organization, many good times were enjoyed during the year.

HIS year the Hi-Y Club was opened to all boys of the school who had a
satisfactory scholastic standing, instead of to juniors and Seniors only, as
in the past. As a result the membership was nearly doubled. Those who

Hoyt Servis was elected president. .Xs in the past, the boys sponsored the annual

Hlf Colonnade Cluh is one of the most helpful societies for girls in the
Ann .-Xrlaor High School. Its purpose, "To find and give the best," was well
carried out in the semi-monthly meetings throughout the year. The club
had one evening meeting and one afternoon meeting' each month. The afternoon
meetings were given over to discussions concerning health and other subjects.
At the evening meetings ri speaker from a foreign country was usually obtained.
Among others, Dr. Koh, a Chinese student. spoke on Chinese customs, and Mrs.
Pargment spoke on Russia.
The social events consisted of the Hi-Y-Colonnade danee, a Halloxvelen
party, a tea for mothers and teachers, and a camping party at Clear Lake.

lie Classical Cllnlli
T the beginning of the school year, Miss Rieger was besieged by a delega-
tion of faithful Latin students who wanted the Classical Club organized
again this year, It had been discontinued in 1929, hence the reason for
the delegation. Miss Rieger complied with the wishes of the students, and the club
was organized with the purpose, as stated in the constitution, 4'To perpetuate and
stimulate interest in classical subjectsf,
Apparently it has had a tremendously successful year, with a membership of
about sixty and regular meetings every two weeks. These meetings consisted of
dramatizations of mythological studies and readings from the works of famous
Greeks and Romans. Once Miss Cawley spoke to the club concerning her Virgilian
cruise. Several entertaining parties were held during the year, among which was
a Christmas party at the home of Dorothy Lyndon.

HE purpose of the Foreign-American Club is to establish good will between
the different nations represented in Ann Arbor High School. .Xmerican boys
make up about one-third of the club and represent the best citizens in school.
Both the foreigners and Americans are benehted by this social contact, and con-
sequently international peace is promoted.
The club sponsored fall and spring picnics as well as the usual Halloween
and Christmas parties. The eighth annual birthday dinner was held March 21 in
the cafeteria. Two parties were given at the homes of Hrs. Lovejoy and Mr.
At some of the monthly meetings the boys were entertained by speakers on
international questions, but for the most part the time was spent in social activities
which served to promote the feeling of friendship between the participants,

The Girls? League
HE Girls' League is the only club of its kind in the Ann Arbor High School.
It is purely a social organization, and every girl in the school is eligible for
membership. The sole object of its members is to enjoy themselves and create
sociability. In order to accomplish this purpose, a party is planned for every month
in the school year.
Unfortunately, the club was not organized until rather late in the first semesterg
hence it was not so active as it has been in the past. However, tive decidedly
successful parties Were arranged, and met with the enthusiastic support of the
club members. Dancing was the chief form of entertainment on these occasions,
although several short plays and skits were presented with great success.

HE two largest projects of the year in the Shakespearean Circle were the
semester plays given in assembly. The first semester a very successful play,
"Evening Dress lndispensablef' was given, and the second semester an
equally clever play, "The L'nseen,U was presented, along with a short skit. Several
new projects were undertaken, among which was the making of a small stage
on which was a scene from "The Taming of the Shrew." This was exhibited in
the library during the national book weekj
Since the cafeteria has been remodeled so that it contains a curtained alcove
suitable for dramatic productions, the Shakespearean Club has held its meetings
in this place. This arrangement has been a great asset to the meetings and has
enabled several of the programs to consist of presentations by the club members.
Many speakers have been obtained to speak before the club. Several meetings
have been entirely devoted to social activities, while a part of each meeting is
devoted to this sort of entertainment. The Circle usually joins into social activities
with Touchstone Club. This year the annual Shakespearean-'llouchstone Dance
was held shortly after spring vacation and was as great a success as ever.

Ronald Tupper was born in Saginaw. Michigan.
From there he moved to Pinckney, and then came to
.-Xnn .Xrbor in 1926. .Xt this time he enrolled in the
Tappan junior lligh School, where he soon became
prominent in athletics. Vfhen he entered High School
in 1939 lie proposed to continue in this field. Football
and basketball were the two sports in which he was
most interested. As a Sophomore. he gained a place
on the reserve football team and accomplished an un-
usual feat by making a place on the first basketball
team. At the close of the basketball season Ronald
entered track. where he continued to gain honors. His
junior year found him an outstanding athlete of the
first rank. As an athlete he built up a large circle
of friends who knew as well as his team-mates that
he played the game squarely. llis death was a blow
from which it is hard to recover. Yet long after the
Wound has healed, the memory of a line fellow, ath-
lete, and class-mate will remain.

EW' people realize or appreciate the task undertaken by the cheer leaders.
There is a very small number of students who have the ambition and nerve
to work hard and evince the full enthusiasm which they feel by leading the
cheering. It would seem that this job of coaxing cheers from fellow students is
one which does not receive its due reward. These boys do indeed add much to
the teamls pep and often seem to Work almost as hard as members of the team.
Certainly their assistance is appreciated by members of the athletic teams and the
Student Council, which is indirectly responsible for the maintenance of the squad.
The group of leaders this year consisted of Bill Bedford. justin Cline, George
Burke, Sanford Ladd, Howard Holland, and Dan Cadagan. Their work was
especially praise-worthy as only one member of the squad, Dan Cadagan, had
served before. Some of these boys led cheers at all the home football, basketball,
and baseball games, as Well as at debates. Many times one or more of them went
to the out-of-town games and led cheers there also. These boys deserve much
credit for their efforts, and all of them will return for further service next year
except Justin Cline and Dan Cadagan. ,K

T FIRST, the prospects for the cross country team looked dark, for many
of the mainstays of last year's team had graduated, but a turn-out of
fifteen candidates made prospects brighter. Coach Ryan's proteges made
an excellent record this year. The team, led by Captain Hoyt Servis, competed in
two dual meets, the "Five AH meet, the regional, and the state meet.
The nrst meet with Flint Northern, held over a new course, was lost 20-35.
The next was run at Dearborn and although Captain Servis broke the tape first
to tie the course record, the meet was lost by the score 24-31. At the "Five-A"
meet Ann Arbor won, but unfortunately the meet had to be re-run. In the regional,
at Ferndale, the team tied for third place and thus qualilied for the state meet,
which was held at Ypsilanti. Here Servis ended his high school cross-country
career by placing First. Then the "Five-AU meet was re-run, and Erwin Steeb
came in third to help Ann Arbor win.
Next year the team should be strong, as only lllelke and Hoyt Servis will be
lost. Captain-elect Steeb hopes to equal the fine records of previous years, and
other team members, including Place, Hammial, Robinson, Allen, and Krueger
will aid him.

HIS year's football season started with a bang when Coach Hollway had
a turn-out of seventy-one, which is the largest ever recorded. Of this group
only Conover, Darling, Brown, Captain Cope, and Stein were letter-men.
However, when Conover injured his head and Jennings his shoulder, and Crawford,
Schwemmin and Darling suffered from broken noses, the season ceased to look
so bright. Spirit and hght were not lacking in this huge squad, as the regulars
soon proved their ability and swiftly turned into a smoothly functioning machine
under the expert tutelage of Coaches Hollway and Taylor.
The opener of the season was won by the narrow margin of 7-6, with lVayne
serving as the opposition. Jennings and Brown both starred in the backhcld,
while Captain Cope was a bulwark on defense among the linemen. The game with
Ypsi Central proved to be a walk-away for Ann Arbor with a final score of 26-O.
The stars this time were again Brown and Jennings, with Royce added to the list.
The whole line showed great improvement. The Saginaw Eastern team, however,
proved to be more serious opposition, defeating the locals in a close game by a
score of 13-6. -
Ann Arbor next met an unusually strong team in Muskegon and was snowed
under, 20-O. The score indicates poor playing, but cold weather and fumbles broke
the hearts of local fans. Pontiac also had a strong team and trounced the Ann
Arbor fellows by a 21-6 score. Raab, a new man, and McConkey showed up well
in this game. The team next journeyed to Flint to play Flint Northern and
succumbed after a bitter struggle by the score of 31-O. Royce did some brilliant
punting. The warriors of Lansing Eastern displayed an excellent passing attack
and won 25-O. However, the team revived and showed what it could do in the
game with Owosso by winning 29-6. Tupper and Royce starred in a successful
aerial attack. McConkey and Kuckelman were new stars and skirted the ends
well in spite of the Wet field. The last game, however, played in the Prison City,
was lost, although the Purple and VVhite warriors put up a spirited battle. Jackson's
state championship team won, 25-O. The game was played on a cold day and
fumbles were numerous.
It would seem that many games were lost this year, but all the teams played
were among the best in the state, while Flint Northern and Jackson along with
Hamtramck became co-holders of the 1931 state football title. Considering the
quality of their opponents, the Ann Arbor footballers made an extremely fine
showing, handicapped by having few letter-men and nearly all new material.
Although the squad will lose many valuable men in Captain Cope, Kruidenier,
Brown, Raftopulos, Spangenberg, Schwemmin, Hickey, Carstens. and Stein, there
will be Captain-elect Creel Conover. Crawford, Jennings, Lavender, Royce, Kuckel-
man, Raab, Vogel, McConkey, Darling, Crull, DeHaan, and Crapsey as well as
the reserves to carry on next year.

Gymitastic T eaimt
llli gymnastic team was organized some years ago, and since then such great
interest has been evidenced in this sport that it has come to assume a position
of importance in Ann Arbor High School athletics. Coach Drake intended
to have two teams at the beginning of this year, but two of his stellar performers,
Jack Showler and Stanley liush, later were unable to compete. ,lack dislocated a
vertebra when he fell from the high-bar and Stanley became ineligible. This left
Ross Mayfield. Phelps Frost, and Robert Lowry, who all performed very well.
Coached by Mr. Drake and "l3lilt" Ponto, the boys swiftly rounded into shape.
The team displayed its ability on two occasions, hrst in a dual meet with
Monroe. and second in the state meet. Ann iXrbor's team journeyed to Monroe
to be defeated by the score of 435-372. This was an excellent performance because
the boys were all inexperienced and were competing against a team of veterans.
The Monroe boys later became State High School Gymnastic Champions. The
boys also made a very creditable showing in the state meet in competing against
the veteran performers of other schools. They made fourth place and see chances
for a higher place next year.
The team will retain two men. lirost and Lowry, and will lose one when
Mayfield graduates in June.

HE court squad was hard hit by graduation last June, and of the five iron
men, only Captain-elect Peter Raftopolus was still in school. Coach Taylor
expected a large turn-out for basketball after the unprecedented number
which had come out for football in the fall. but the boys did not turn out in great
numbers. Nevertheless, those who did were capable players, so that Taylor was
compelled to cut only a few. The first and second squads were soon chosen and
the coach rapidly polished the boys into a smoothly functioning machine. Return-
ing from last year's second squad besides Captain Raftopolus were Dunnaback,
Hickey, Brown, Tupper, Smith, Jennings, and Lundgreng the newcomers were
Landon, Kuckelman, and Royce.
The first game of the year was the annual struggle between the alumni and
the regulars. This was exceedingly close and exciting for an opener. Menefee for
the alumni played well, while Jennings showed his ability at guard, and both teams
played a hard, fast, game. After this Warming-up, the team journeyed to Fordson,
where Fordson's more experienced veterans overcame them 24 to 16. In the next
game Battle Creek defeated the boys by a score of 25 to 17, mainly because of their
inability to stop one speedy colored boy named Letts, who garnered sixteen points.
Next the team played U. of D. High, and waking up after its previous defeats,
conquered by the score of 26 to 18. In playing Lansing Central at Lansing, after
capturing a nine-point lead early in the game, the boys eased up to lose 24 to 22
in the last minute of play. The next game, with Jackson, was lost I5 to I4 after
a hard fight in which Brown and Captain Raftopolus starred. This was the last
game on the home Hoor for Brown, Dunnaback, and Raftopolus.
The team now journeyed to Port Huron, to be defeated 18 to 16 after a
terrific struggle, but the following week vanquished Muskegon on the home floor
in another close game, 20 to 17. Lansing Eastern, however, took the wind out
of Ann Arbor by defeating her 30 to 18. The team was further depressed by
another defeat at the hands of Battle Creek, 28 to 17, but came back to avenge
these defeats in the next game by winning over Lansing Central in two overtime
periods, 24 to 22. Royce and Tupper starred. In defeating Lansing Central, the
locals vanquished a team which was destined to be a finalist in Class A in the
Next Ypsilanti was overcome 18 to 13, but at Lansing Eastern the team lost
24 to II to a hard-playing team. The last game on the regular schedule, with
Pontiac was cancelled because of the untimely death of Ronald Tupper, one of
the best players on the squad. Handicapped by their grief over this unexpected
loss, the team was defeated in the first regional competitions with Lansing Eastern,
27 to 20. Of the regulars only two, Captain Lundgren and Hickey, will be lost

N unusually large number of men were kept on this yearls reserve basket-
ball team, and it proved its worth by making an excellent record. Coach
.lohn Kagey had some good material which he developed to the fullest
extent. Some of the fellows who starred for the second team Were VVenger,
Mathis. YVhite, YYard, and Pegang while among the newer players Malloy, lYeid,
Landon, Suthn, VVares, and Goetz showed promise. The second team's season was
one of close games and hard-fought battles.
The season opened with the Fordson gameg this resulted in a one-point
defeat, 23 to 22. Battle Creek was next and after another bitter struggle, Ann
Arbor's Reserves were vanquished I5 to II. The next opposition however proved
mediocre and the boys conquered the U. of D. Reserves, 27 to 8. The purple and
white boys next defeated Lansing Central, I3 to II 3 then Jackson fell in a closely
contested battle 14 to 13. St. Thomas, however, sadly trounced the Ann Arborites
in the next game, 27 to 8. liut hghting hard to prove their worth after this defeat
they first defeated Chelsea 27 to I2 and next Lansing Easternls reserves I5 to 14.

for it is only two years old. Last yearls successful team was composed of
a number of excellent players, but most of them graduated, leaving only
Captain Cope. Ross Mayfield. and Ferris Jennings as the nucleus for the new
squad. Coach Taylor. however, proved his ability to build up strong teams from
green material, and the fellows came through the season in lane style. Reserves
from last year who were available were Robert Mathis. XYard Goetz, Gordon
Schroeder, Charles lYestenfeld. Richard hlaeoby, and John Hatto. There were
also some new boys who had just come from junior High and who developed
into regular players.
As was done last year, the team was nuanced partially by the weekly contri-
bution of the students so that no admission was charged for the games. Despite
the newness of the sport in Ann ,Xrbor High. everyone was interested in the team
which made a good showing in its ten-game schedule.
This schedule was as follows: Ypsi Central April 24. Flint Northern May 2,
Plymouth May Q, Ypsi Roosevelt Nay 12, Monroe May 16, Ypsi Central Nay
22, Ypsi Roosevelt May 26, Howell May 29. Adrian June 2, Plymouth June 6.

High School. The teams have done so Well that interest in golf is rapidly
Coach Hollway, who has charge of the team, lost only one man, Charles Mene-
fee, by graduation last year. This left three veterans, Vlloodrow Malloy, Vklilliam
Smith, and Clarence Markham, who carried on through a successful season with
the help of Frank Conklin and VValter VVeid.
This year an unusual numhcr of matches were scheduled. There were dual
matches with jackson, Flint Central, Pontiac, University High, Ypsi Central, and
Ypsi Roosevelt. Beside these there were a K'l7ix'e-JY' meet. a Regional meet, and
a State meet.
In every match in which the team competed, it successfully upheld the high
school name.VVoodroW Malloy, who was elected captain, was the teamls outstand-
ing player and played excellent golf throughout the season. The entire five,
however, are to he commended on their scores and fine showing which furthered
the reputation they had gained in tournaments during the summer of 1930. It
was a blow to the team to lose llloodrow Malloy, "Bill" Smith, and "Cal'

ENNIS, under the leadership of Coach Drake, has steadily increased in pop-
ularity at Ann Arbor lligh. Every season the teimis team makes a fine
record. Of the excellent squad of last year, only XYoodrow Vrard, and
Victor Kayser remained to form the nucleus of this year's group. After keen
competition among the large number of newcomers who turned out for the squad,
Max Frisinger, Louis Landon, Max McHenry, Charles Nordman, Raymond
Carry, and Craig Spangenherg won places.
This year a full schedule was arranged. 'llhere were matches with Lansing
Central, Lansing Eastern, Battle Creek, Jackson, Ypsi Central, Ypsi Roosevelt,
the "Five .V meet, the Regional meet. and the State meet- The season resulted
in one of the most successful that the tennis team has experienced.
This is the first time that the tea1n has had its picture in the Omega, a11d it
certainly deserves the recognition, for the boys worked hard and diligently both
in preparation and matches. Only remnants of this year's excellent squad are left
after graduation. which took Victor Kayser, XVoodrow XVard, Max Frisinger, Max

OACH Ryan's track team lived up to its reputation this year despite the
loss of such stars as Peter Zahner, Floyd VVakeneld, and Harry Mathews.
Ryan developed many capable performers, and his indoor season showed
his ability as a coach. VVith Captain VVagner as the most outstanding performer,
Darling and Steeb were consistent point-Winners.
The indoor season opened with the defeat of Detroit Eastern here by a
score of 57 2X3 to 38 IX3. Welke, Scrvis, Schwemmin, and Crawford became
ineligible after the Detroit Eastern meet due to the semester ruling, but the team
crashed through to victories regardless. Wyanclotte was next defeated 57 to
II. In a triangular meet with Flint Central and Flint, Ann Arbor garnered 57
points again, to 34 for Northern and 30 for Central. The next meet with Toledo
Scott proved to be the only indoor defeat, 562 to 38M2. The last meet of the
indoor season was with Dearborn, which was defeated 72 2X3 to 22 IX3. The
outdoor season scheduled a dual meet with Pontiac, the U. of M. Invitational,
the Regional, the Five-A, and the State meets.
One of the most outstanding feats of the season indoors was the breaking
of Ted Hornberger's mile record by Hoyt Servis, who reduced it three seconds to

O climax an unusually successful hockey season, a mythical all-star team
was chosen from the best material of the three contesting class teams by the
three captains. To be a member of the all-star team is a very great honorg
to win such a position a girl must have proved herself able to cooperate with her
team and give her best to the game.
The hrst game of the season, played on October 13, resulted in a victory over
the junior class by an unexpectedly strong Sophomore team. The Seniors were
an easy prey to both Sophomore and junior teams. However, the close Sophomore-
junior game again drew the center of interest. The Hedglings emerged victorious,
chalking up three scores to the Juniors' one, thus clinching the championship.
The players of the winning Sophomore team were as follows: Helen Palmer,
I,ela Kroh, Doris Lindenschmidt, jean Groh, Marian Hough, Elsie Pierce, Ruth
Carstens, Esther Carstens, Ruth Hurley, Lucille Behnke, and Agnes Zebbs.

ACH vear girls' basketball becomes more popular and the competition becomes
keener. This year enough girls turned out from the Sophomore and junior
classes to organize two reserve teams, a thing which has never been done
before. liefore any girl could make either the reserve or the first team, she had
to pass seven tests to show that she had a complete knowledge of basketball.
At the beginning of the second semester the teams were picked. and the first
game was played between the Sophomores and the juniors. The Hedglings dis-
played an unusually strong team, defeating the juniors by a score of 15-19. The
second game again brought victory to the Sophomores, this time against the Senior
team. The Juniors then took revenge for their defeat at the hands of the Sopho-
mores by winning over the Seniors.
ln the fourth game the Seniors nearly upset the Sophomores' hopes for the
championship. but a last-minute rally made the score I7 to io in favor of the
latter. The Sophomores then cinched the championship by defeating a weakened
junior team. The Seniors, playing with a totally revamped team, downed the
Juniors, leaving these two teams tied for second place. The play-off resulted in a
victory for the Seniors, giving the Seniors second place and the juniors third place.
