In 1936 Virginia Owen, with the advice and aid of Mrs. Lucy Haynes, organized Prome-
thean to fill a long-felt need for a literary club open to all high school girls.
Under the leadership of our past presidents-Beth Scott and Virginia Owen-Promethean
has grown. In the beginning the club was composed of only four members, but it has increased
its membership to nine. Each year new members are elected so that there are four seniors, three
juniors, and two sophomores.
This year Promethean has studied drama. From outside speakers, the students have become
acquainted with the history of the theatre, the drama of the Greeks, the Shakespearean drama, and
the modern stage. Through informal discussions on stage artists, playwrights, and current plays,
they have gained a knowledge of the modern drama. In February, Promethean went to Chicago to
see "Stage Door," featuring Joan Bennett.
Miss Grace Emery of the high school faculty is club adviser, and the officers are: Ann Hop-
kins, presidentg Eloise Cunningham, secretary, and Mary Frances Granger, reporter.
Head Usher, Roy Elson, Assistant Head Usher, Betty Sunday, Adviser, Mr. Harrod.
The Usher Club was organized in 1921 by Mr. Phillip Lovejoy, a member of the faculty at
that time, for the purpose of selling tickets and ushering at all school events.
This organization has gained a reputation for being one of the most outstanding clubs in the
high school. Much credit for its success goes to Mr. Don J. Harrod, present adviser, through whose
faithful efforts this reputation for the club has been achieved. At present the club has an enrollment
of 60 members under the leadership of the head usher, Roy Elson.
This year the club ushered at all football and basketball games, the operetta, the senior class
play, the dramatics class play, and other entertainments sponsored by the high school.
THE DEBATE TEAM
The debate team, coached by Max Fuller, was the first one to represent Harbor High in five
years. Though it had but one victory, the remarkable improvement of the members in their speak-
ing ability more than justifies their claim to a successful season.
Keith Lawton, George Hess, and Frances Karbadon upheld the affirmative side of the ques-
tion, "Resolved that the several states should adopt the unicameral system of legislature." Though
defeated by St. joe and Niles, they emerged victorious over Buchanan.
The negative, upheld by Lester Tacy, Stanley Derby, and Keith Lawton, lost three close de-
cisions to Niles, Buchanan, and St. joe.
Roy Elson and Beverly Zebell presided as king and queen over the annual high-school carni-
val which is one of the high lights of the school year.
Two definite purposes are behind this gala affair. The Hrst, and probably the most impor-
tant, is to raise money for future chapel programs. Among these were: Arthur Ponsford, areporterg
Dr. Luther Goble, a scientist who experiments with radiumg and Edna Means, a dramatic reader.
The second purpose, although of lesser importance, has its own yalue. All students' are not only
allowed but expected to participate in the preparation of thecarnival. All shows, with the excep-
tion of the main show, which is put on by professionals, are made up entirely of students who take
pride in the carnival because they themselves put it on.
"Doc" Applebee's show, which has grown to be a tradition, furnishes much "umph" to the
Four senior students are chosen to be the chairmen of the carnival. These chairmen in turn
pick their staff to help them supervise the shows, concessions, dancing, and other forms of enter-
The carnival is much work, requires weeks of toil and headaches, but a merry time is always
had by all.

The High School mixed choir composed of ninteen members, selected from both. the- Boys'
and Girls' Glee Clubs, have enjoyed another year of music study under the capable direction of
Miss Grace Congdon. The choir, which makes many public appearances each year, both in and
out of school, met once a week for its rehearsals.
Among the choir's several appearances this season was the Fall Music Festival early in
December. Also, they sang special numbers in assembly for the program ofAChristmas carols. The
choir made its last appearance on the Baccalaureate program at graduation time.
THE BOYS' GLEE CLUB
The Boys' Glee Club began their year's work under the capable direction of Miss Grace
Congdon and the following ofhcers: Russell Patterson, presidentg and Donald Kuschel, librarian.
The membership numbers forty, of whom Fifteen are seniors.
A short time after the opening of school, work was begun on Kountz's Cantata, "The Song
of Man", a beautiful, dramatic, and effective number. It was used for the Annual Fall Music Fes-
tival Concert and was greatly enhanced by the accompaniment of the high school orchestra and the
After Christmas the club studied "The Pirates of Penzance", a Gilbert and Sullivan light
opera, which was presented on the seventeenth and eighteenth of March by the combined glee clubs.
The Boys' Glee Club ably and lustily portrayed the parts of pirates and police, creating laughter
and excitement throughout the whole performance,
They are closing the year's work with special music for Class Night and Commencement.
