THE ARSENAL TECHNICAL SCHOOLS

three hundred years . . .
Of youth seeking and age answering, and youth seeking still,
Of roads taken and not taken, of dreams and fulfillments, of stars and telescopes,
Three hundred years of America growing and America reaching for what she wanted,
burning her fingers and not crying, America saying to her children:
I give you knowledge for your thirst, for knowledge begets more thirst, and may you
be always thirsty.
Strange, that high school education can be three hundred years old
and still so young, so changing,
But things are what they are made of, and what are high schools but boys and girls,
belligerently young, impetuously changing?
In 1635, the Pilgrim boys learned new lessons eagerly and rebelliously, for youth is
always eager and rebellious.
And years passed swiftly, fiery years of revolution, growth and assertion, hard lessons
and proud success,
Farms and cities growing, youth growing, high schools struggling up after the growth,
And now, 1935 . . .
now is the fulfillment of hopes half-formed, dreamers of long ago,
Here youth learns the hardest of all lessons, learns to know himself,
Finds the reachings of his fingers and the facets of his mind.
Today, unafraid, eager and restless, searching a new road, rejecting the old, youth still
keeps wondering, still asks questions, delves in darkness and finds the light.

song of farewell
Sing we the praise of friends tried and true,
Sing we the days of meeting anew.
Loud sound the song, gladly and bright,
Speed we them on in honor, truth, and right.
Be ye dauntless always, don ye heroes' array.
Let no misfortune dismay, time will all things
Loud sound the song, gladly and bright,
Speed we them 011 in honor, truth, a11d right.

'AIQLEY TEN YLK
' L. . HMO'
hree hundred years ago
our forefathers, realizing the necessity of some
system of advanced schooling for the youth of
America, founded the nation's first home of sec-
ondary education, the Boston Latin School. This
year we have been celebrating the three hun-
dredth anniversary of the birthday of that school
by paying tribute to those far-seeing men whose
"Hints and dry shavings" kindled the spark
which lighted the torch of high school educa-
tion. That spark was fanned from a little flicker
of flame, as the years went by, into a feeble
light, then a dim lamp, and finally into the
blazing torch which we now carry so proudly
and whose rays of light seek out the dark cor-
ners of the world.
When each succeeding generation has caught
the torch flung to it by those who have marched
ahead, up the hill of Time, it has blown the torch
into a brighter flame, has lifted it higher so that
all who have followed might see the road. In
the never-ending stream youth has always de-
manded more light to guide his way up the hill,
those who marched ahead have always heard
the cry and obeyed. Today, the torch light is the
brightest it has ever been, in this, the year we
are paying homage to those who kindled the
flame three hundred years ago.
As the youth of America in the living present,
we follow the example of our forefathersg too,
we look forward to those youths who are to fol-
low us. We see them, the youth through the next
three hundred years, waiting to carry on, and
so we join in the cry, "More light! More light!"

IIC entire student bod y
wishes to express its gratitude and appreciation to
Mr. John A. Mueller, retiring football coach, for
the services he has given to the school. Not only
has Mr. Mueller upheld the standards of the
school, but also has produced competent football
teams which capably represented Tech in meet-
ing outstanding opposition throughout the state.
In order to devote more time to the Reclassi-
fication department, of which he is the head,
Mr. Mueller has retired as football mentor and
turned over the coaching reins to Mr. Robert L.
Wvith a warm friendship and appreciation for
Mr. Mueller that will never be lost, members of
present and former football teams and the entire
student body 110 less warmly welcome our IICWV
football coach, Mr. Ball., who accepted the re-
sponsibilities of this position early in the semes-
Intramural sports have now gained a strong
foothold in the athletics of Tech. Each year
finds more and more students taking advantage
of the opportunity intramural athletics offer
for those who like to play the games, but are not
good enough to place on the varsity or reserve
In the early winter, basketball teams were or-
ganized from freshman shop and gym classes.
These twenty teams were formed into four
leagues of five teams each with each team play-
ing once or twice a week. This gave almost one
hundred and fifty boys a chance to play.
Proof of rising interest in intramural sports
is evidenced by the many entrants in the ping-
pong tournament. Five hundred and fifty boys
participated, with Milton Dills defeating Robert
Schaub to capture the title.
Students are privileged to use the tennis
courts before and after their programs. During
lunch hours handball, ping-pong, and horse-
shoes are being enjoyed. Several students
formed an indoor-baseball league, with games
played after school.

Traveling to Kokomo, Saturday, April twenty-
seventh, the Green and Wlxite cinder-men placed
eighth in the tenth annual Kokomo Relays held
at Kautz Field. Froebel annexed the champion-
ship, scoring 31 points.
Tech amassed a total of 51 points, scoring in
every event except the pole vault, to win the sec-
tional title and to qualify twelve men for the
state meet, May eleventh. Tech's nearest com-
petitor was Shortridge with I8 1X3 points.
Wfith only two days of drill in which the
whole unit participated, the Tech R. O. T. C.
squad, led by the music of the Band, swung
round the gate and headed onto the athletic
field for the fourteenth annual inspection day,
Adverse weather conditions which had made
it impossible for the unit to hold extensive
drills finally drew to a close and inspection day
arrived, fair and warm. The colorful and en-
thusiastic crowd which overfiowed the bleachers
watched approximately six hundred and seven-
ty-five cadets perform their marching and calis-
thenics drills in an effort to bring the honor rat-
ing to Tech for the fourteenth consecutive time.
This unit, which is the largest ever to have
been in an inspection here, was reviewed by
Lieutenant-Colonel John E. Mort, Field Artil-
lery, and Major J. H. Davidson, Infantry.

crete courts i11 preparation for a 7-meet sched-
ule beginning May ninth at Richmond.

follows: May 14, at Frankling May 16, at Short-
ridgeq May 21, Richmond, here, May 24, Frank-
lin, here, May 28, Shortridge, here.
GIRL S, PHYSICAL
Witli the cooperation of the 1,000 students en-
rolled, the girls' Physical Education department
has displayed a continuous development. In
the spring semester tournaments in basketball,
volleyball, volleyring tennis, archery, and base-
ball have been sponsored, together with the
semi-annual all-school tennis tournament. A
well-balanced program is offered in the eighteen
classesfone consisting of corrective exercises,
dances, gymnastics, and sports.
In the annual Play Day, held in recognition of
Supreme Day in May, the girls compete in run-
ning, jumping, throwing, and kicking. Ribbons
and points are awarded to the first three winners
in each event. A point system has been organ-
ized, and on this basis awards are presented at
Honor Day every year: a bronze ATS pin, 350
points, a silver T-E-C-H pin, 700 points, and a
gold bar, 1000 points. These are given to those
who show outstanding ability in the various
sports and types of class work.

rumbled its way along the tracks. It was so filled
with jostled humanity that it seemed at every
lurch as though the doors would surely burst
open. Standing in one corner was a small, in-

At this moment he was extremely nervous,

fearfully about him, he noticed a large, hard-

Baseball is the only game where two or three
of the nine men do all of the work while the
rest stand around ready to be helpful in case an
emergency should arise, as when a ball is batted
into their sectors. The only two athletes who
work up a sweat during tl1e course of a nine-
inning game are the pitcher and the catcher.
The pitcher is at the focal point 011 the dia-
mond, the center of all attention. He is a hero
when the batter strikes out, and a '6bum" when
the same player connects, and the ball is batted
for a home run. Most of the spectators forget,
however, that the pitcher is merely an obedient
machine who does entirely what the catcher
tells him to do by mea11s of finger signals. The
burly catcher is the more intelligent of the bat-
tery, as pitcher and catcher are called. Nine-
tenths of the pitchers are also directed by the
backstop, who is supposed to be a keen student
of the weaknesses of every hitter in the league.
But most amazing of all is the system of base-
ball slavery in the heart of a constitutional de-
mocracy, through which baseball players are
bought, sold, and traded like so much inert mer-

The spark I thought was dead within me came

General Custer by the Indians was complete
even to the war paint applied with school wa-
ter colors. All these and more were held in this
fascinating little structure of wood where imagi-
nation was at its peak.
In the same yard another club house was
made by the boys of the neighborhood, but this
was an underground one. The necessary hole
was dug, about ten feet square and two and one-
half feet deep, stooping room only, then three
large plates of sheet steel were placed over the
hole. Over this, dirt was scattered for a satis-
factory camouflage. An attempt to have a small
stove resulted in the smoking out of all the occu-
pants of the club in one minute flat. Here, with
necks and backs bent, the boys related all the
fascinating topics which their parents had dis-
cussed in their presence. After a few minutes in
the "new home," it was necessary to scratch,
and the room was just large enough to get into,
but not large enough to accommodate every one
and his elbows.
g Among the other treasures in the yard was a
cherry tree. Tarzan of the Apes was the most
enjoyed game here. Play platforms were built
and torn down time and time again. In the
evening when the youngest member of the Holt
family had problems to brood over or cry about,
the topmost branches were sought. In fact, on
one of these excursions to the top of the tree
the young ape, losing his footing, came falling
through the many branches only to land on his
head. This naturally didn't hurt him to any
extent except to dislocate a few vertebrae.

chandise. Baseball players are caught young by
minor league managers, developed, sold, or
traded to the major leagues: and thereafter, if
they want to play ball, they belong to their
purchasers. By trade and sale the players' al-
legiance shifts from city to city, sometimes two
or three times in a season. None of them know
when they will be "sold down the river"-that
is, swapped or disposed ofto an undesirable city.
They are completely at the mercy of their em-
ployers. Thus great ball teams are put together,
not through their owners' and managers' de-
veloping promising players and drilling them
until they become an unbeatable machine, but
with a cheque book. lf the owners have enough
money, they can buy enough great stars to make
a winning team. This, in the final analysis, is
most truly American of all.

But lll0llgll different individuals value trees
for certain gifts, it has been the poets who seem
to understand their full message of both useful-
ness and beauty. Theodosia Garrison, in her
poem, "Shade," wrote:
"The kindliest thing God ever made,
His hand of very healing laid
Upon a fevered world, is shade."
Perhaps the most famous verses about trees
are those written by ,loyce Kilmer in which he

edges that 'G0nly God can make a tree."
Henry Van Dyke, in his poem, 5'Salute to the

And every tree for its use is good,
Some for the strength of the gnarled root,
Some for the sweetness of flower or fruit:

Some for the roof, and some for the beam,
And some for the boat to breast the stream:
In the wealth of the wood since the world

f 0ll,V6 ever had to
peck out a long composition on a typewriter by
the "hit-when-yon-find-it" method, you will be
very enthusiastic in your praise of pens.
Pens are symbols of mentality and impo1'-
tance. Picture an ambassador of peace signing
another "scrap of paperil with a large pen, a
flourish, and fourteen news-reel men. Or im-
agine that the Governor is portrayed signing a
hill which prohibits people from harboring
more than fifty dogs in their household at one
time. These people never use a typewriter for
the simple reason that the written signature is
individualistic, and many of our political lead-
ers are rugged individualists.
Pens are romantic, quaint, and pleasant re-
minders of the old day when knighthood was in
flower and many of the world's greatest writers
were blooming, too. Shakespeareis writings,
which will live forever, were written with a pen.
It would be much more pleasant to watch him
push his beautifully feathered quill pen across
his writing paper in his old house on the Avon
than to see a modern writer sitting hunched
over a elackety, noisy typewriter pounding
away amid clouds of cigarette smoke and piles
of empty pop bottles.
As yet, there has 11ot been perfected a type-
writer with wl1icl1 to write music. Think what
the world would have missed had Victor llerbert
been forced to wait for this development in me-
Nor have our inventors contributed to us a
vest-pocket typewriter for taking notes in class.
lit is universally admitted that the typewriter
is vastly superior to a pen. As a piece of mech-
anism, I'll grant that, too. Pen points break,
and ink spills, but once you have dropped a
typewriter ribbon, you will quickly forgive the
pen for any of its minor faults.
Perhaps lhave been a trifle hard on the type-
writer. It really has one good quality. As you
know, our government officials, from the Presi-
dent on down, are lying awake nights figuring
out ways and means of re-employing our idle. l
repeat, the typewriter is superior in one respect.
It takes more men to build a typewriter than
to construct a pen.

Night-cooled music, swaying silks,
Breath of silence from an old
Dusty red of painted carts rattling down a nar-
Whispering of fans and softer whispering bc-
Tiny iizz of translucent wine bubbling into
Listen . . .
Strumming of guitars and babies crying under
shawls and matin hells ringing molten
Listen, while l repeat them softly, letting the

THE QUEEN OF
as l1OlS6lCSS as the wind that blows,
As soft Elllll white as wintry snows,
The queen of night glides through the sky
Like a silver boat 'mid clouds on high.
Fairies dance in her silver stream,
And children play 'neath her friendly gleam.
Around her glitter ti11y maids
Who appear as soo11 as daylight fades.
The tiny moonbeams oft l've seen,
Frollicking about their stately queen.
They carry her train of glimmering light
Far into the depths of the winter night.

ltt C green marsh-grass
Wading in black water,
Bending low, whispering
To the Swamp-King's daughter.
What does she say?
ls it of good?
Or doesn't she care
There in the mud?
With her black hands crawling,
With her wild voice calling!
Slender, waving marsh-grass
Moaning ill the breeze,
Wash your faces of the mud!
Rise up like the trees!
Why do you stay?
Because of love?
Does she know
Youire there above?
Watching where the green slime floats:
Watching for the Swamp-King's boats!

Shadows love to play with you when
you're walking down the street:
Sometimes they're far ahead of you, and some-
times at your feet,
Sometimes they're pacing back and forth with
measured tread and slow,
Sometimes they're hurrying on ahead as fast as
they can go.
But when behind a fleecy cloud the sun its
face does hide,
I look and find there are no shadows walking
by my side.

"Did you make one back?,'
"Now supposin' you were ill my place, would

"Joseph, I asked you a question."
'slf you really wanta know, it wasn't a very
big one. I just stuck my tongue out tl1e least

"Is that all you can say for yourself?"
"VVell, then I pulled dow11 my eyes, pushed

You know what. It's usually on tl1e dresser."
"Ah, Mom, you wouldn't whup a feller fer

"In that case, I'11 use a stickf,
"Aw nerts, you women allus have a way."
Thus he grumbled on tl1e way upstairs: then he
added, "An, whe11 I'm president, there WVOIIII bc
any more hairbrush factorieseor even sticks."
The next day, Joseph, mucl1 to his disgust,
told Bettie tl1at he was very sorry about his
previous attitude, b11t that although l1e couldn't
attend, he thanked her for l1avi11g thought of
him. All of this came out in 0116 breath.
One bright summer day a few weeks later,
Joseph, after finishing his breakfast, brushed
his hair and started for school. As he turned
tl1e corner, he noticed a small white figure a
block away trying to get across the street.
"Oh, itis just o11e of them pesky helpless gals,"
thought Joseph. 51,11 go down and help her
As he walked deliberately dow11 the walk, he
noticed a small white puppy beside the girl.
Upon looking closer, he discovered to his sur-
prise that it was Amos, his own pup. .lust then
he saw this fluff of white fur dash across the
street. But before tl1e little pup reached the
other side, he hurt his foot and, evidently,
couldn't move. Joseph started to ru11. I-Ie must
reach Amos before he was hit. Then he saw
something that he could hardly believe was
true. The little figure in white dashed across
the street, picked up Amos, and ran to safety on
the other side. She had barely escaped an acci-
dent, for around the corner there came a large,
fast-moving van. Joseph kept running toward
tl1e two, and all the time he was wondering who
the brave girl could be, and how he should re-
ward her. Maybe he could give her an apple
pie. No, she wouldn't like that.
As l1e ClllllG closer, he shouted, 'GIS l1e hurt
64No,i' answered the small girl, "his foot is
just sprained a little. I'm tying it with this
handkerchief so it will feel better."
As l1e heard these words, he was very much
startled, for it was Bettie Ann's voice. He looked
at l1er again, doubtfully. Yes, it was Bettie.
'GUh, welliuh, thanks a lot for saving my dog.
Cosh, I did11't know you gals was so brave," he
slammered, embarrassed, after some pause.
'6Cirls," corrected Bettie.
HAH right, gurls," l1e repeated, pronouncing
it with emphasis 011 tl1e Mu."
"What HIZHIC you think girls weren't brave?',
MOII, I don' know," l1e answered, 'QI allus
thought gals, I mean girls, was sissiesf'
"You did! Well, I guess youid better take
Amos home and fix his leg better. I'll explain
your absence to tl1e teacher."
"Yeah, I guess I'd betterfi he answered as they
both got up from the curb. "Gee, ya know you're
11ot such a had feller after all, are ya?"
"Uh, I donit k11ow. What do you think?"
"I'm 11ot sure, but I guess you're O. K. Ain't
"Isn't," corrected Bettie.
"Yeah, isn't," repeated Joseph.
Hwfell, you'd better get Amos homefl
MSO lo11g. Hope I ki11 do sompin' fer you some
day,'i he explained, hesitatingly.
'LThatis all right. It ainit anything."
"Isn't," he corrected, Ellltl they both laughed.
6'Gosh," 11111111bled Joseph 011 tl1e way home,
"she's not a coward, and I kinda like l1er l1OW.
Yup," he confided to Amos, 'Gshe's tops with me
because she's no sissief' He tur11ed his face to
hide his embarrassment for l1e saw the twinkle
i11 Amos' eye.
He would have been surprised if he had
known what Bettie was thinking as she entered
"He is a 11ice boy," she thought to herself. 'fl
didn't lil10W he could be so polite. Well, from
now 011 I wonlt be the 'stuck-up little brat, he

The next few years fOlllld Bettie and Joseph
wonderful friends. He had made a regular tom-

he senior class of 1935,
representing all the senior classes of Tech, offers
its sincere gratitude and appreciation to Miss Lyle
Harter, retiri11g senior sponsor.
Miss Harter came to Technical in 1914- as
school librarian, taking charge of a small room
with but few books and one set of encyclo-
pedias. Under her guidance the library grew so
rapidly that soon it was moved into larger quar-
In January, 1919, Miss Harter assumed the
duties of one of the senior sponsors of the June
senior class, 11ow known as the L-Z division,
and from that time until January, 1935, she has
made the welfare of the seniors o11e of her chief
interests. She has been generous with her time
and her effort, more generous still with her kind-
ly spirit of helpfulness and enthusiasm. Every
senior coming under her supervision has felt the
flattering interest Hlld sympathy which she has
given each one individually.
But the demands of a growing school upon
its library have kept Miss Harter more and more
busy. Feeling that she must devote all her time
to the librarianship in order to serve her school
best, last semester she regretfully transferred her
tasks as senior sponsor to Miss Alberta Kappeler.
With a warm friendship and appreciation for
Miss Harter that they will never lose, tl1e senior
class of 1935 welcomes no less warmly their 116W
sponsor who has accepted her responsibilities:
and it promises the continued cooperation of
future would-be graduates who will find Miss
Kappeler devoting her time and understanding
to Technical's senior classes.
