8 SENIOR YEAR Book
in her spare time. The three have of course revolutionized methods of teaching young
children. Their alliterative motto is: "Teach Tots Thoughtfullyf' Gertrude Edelstein
is a teacher of American History and Economics. Long may her pupils wavei
Fred Veyhl is a successful fjudging by his salary, actor in the popular talkies,
with Matejunas doubling for him in the talking sequences. Incidentally, they are
intending to direct, act, and design a new series of entirely unique motion pictures.
The "sets" are to be painted in their entirety, by our two marvels, of course, and the
cast will consist only of themselves. It is a deep mystery to us how they intend to act
and to operate the camera simultaneously. Perhaps it is a waste of time to bother our
head over the matter. For it is just barely possible that nobody will care very much
about seeing these pictures. There is another of our number who has made a name for
himself. Al Ulmer is an ace flyer with innumerable medals on his manly chest. He
earned them for originating unusual and nearly disastrous methods of falling gracefully
with one's plane. Great honor is due him - and two months' pay. ,
Edythe Sasuly is a smiling proprietress of a Lane Bryant shop. Anne Levinstein
divides ,her time between her art and her domestic duties and just loves it! Edward
Hochstetter is the newly-appointed commissioner of Police of Oswegotchee, N. Y.
Qbelieve it or not, that's its real namej. He is trying to emulate Grover Whalen, but
that gentleman's methods aren't working out so well in a town that is as small as
Oswegotchee. However, Eddie is going to stick it out, because the girls of the town
are pretty fall three of themj. Al Weis has fulfilled his promise, and is now the
leader of the most successful orchestra in the country. Paul Whiteman is still good,
but needless to say, hardly anybody speaks of him any more. Al and his Music Makers
are booked for the Palace next week. Al Gallo has gone to the other extreme, and is
now a noted lawyer, second to none. He aspires to the seat of the Supreme Court
judgeship. We could think of better things to do than sit on a bench for the rest of
one's life. Ne'ertheless, here's luck, Al!
We hnd Hilda Lichtenstein as beautiful as ever Qshe says so herselfj posing for
doll faces and the wigs thereof. Wherever she may dart her eye, wax and china effigies
of her countenance meet her gaze. She needs no mirrors, and if she likes not her own
coiffure, she can borrow that of her favorite dolly. We must warn all her protegees
to beware before it is too late. They may suffer a similar fate. Izzy Harris gives us a
wholesome shock. Harris, who each morning at Bushwick uttered the now time-honored
phrase, "Who's going on a hook'to-day ?", is now a truant olficer, and woe to the urchin
who is caught in the Gates Theatre when he should have been in school. But Harris
a truant officer! Oh the irony of fate, the unforseen meandering of .destinyl Both
Elizabeth Rosenblum and William Metzroth have conquered the gilded path of idleness,
and by dint of hard labor Qpresumablyj have jointly been welcomed within the mighty
portals of Phi Beta Kappa, or as the Greeks say it, Phi Beta Kappa. We say presumably.
Of course, Elizabeth's uncle may be the president of the college she attends, or
William's sister may be the dean of the fashionable girls' seminary which he frequents.
We don't know. However, despite all we have just been muttering, we are firmly con-
vinced that their reward was the result of their own unguided efforts. At any rate, it
is only what we expected..

is,-H, IME has flown. Where are the graduates of yesteryear - - - the glory that was
Bushwick's? Let us coax Father Time, the stage manager of the world, to
all us just a small peep at the activities of at least a few erstwhile seniors of the
class of june, 1929. The curtain rises.
Well, well, and still again! Who but our own Lil Klein is disporting in the
chair of the presidency of the United States. just think, the honor of being the very
hrst woman president has been conferred upon little Lillian! We'll wager that when
she sits at her desk, she cannot help but let her feet dangle! To go from the tragic
to the comic, the stage has profited by the addition of Herbert Hall who is starring
in a new comedy entitled, "I Faw Down And Go Boom!" Carry on, Herbie, carry
on! The Salvation Army needs you. Incidentally, Beatrice Falk is now considered
I-1ollywood's official photographer.
Cliflord Langbein occupies an expensive seat on the curb fyes, dear children, it
is all made of bright shiny gold piecesj having proved his ability as a business execu-
tive. His early training as manager of the Year Book has very apparentlybeen in-
valuable to him. The versatile Charles Hurlburt is a star athlete on the All-American
team, while Mildred Horni, the sweet and beauteous, cheers him onward from the
dug-out. Bravo, Mildred! Continue your good work. And speaking of good work-
l-lannah Siegel has become a true little Mary Sunshine. She is a welfare worker fyou
should see her in her cute little bonnetj and the Little Sister of the Poor, and indeed
spreads joy and happiness wherever she turns her cheery smile. Arnold Auerbach is
merrily chasing ambulances hither and yon.
Jack Fried is wearily posing, in his best jaded manner, for the Arrow Collar Ad
artist. He seems to be exceedingly prosperous, if outward appearances are any indica-
tion. And the women still pursue him .... even over the footlights of life. Ah,
yes, jack, you were ever popular, my lad of the heartbreaking wiles. Howard Hall
is his fellow model and apartment ITIZIIC. They share a large and sumptuous bachelor
apartment on West End Avenue, and bestow a handsome five dollar bill fwith good
United States backingj to their resplendent and liveried doorman each time they see
him. He will soon have an apartment on West End Avenue himself, if his benefactors
do not move. Howard has refused to recognize his brother, since he disapproves very
strongly of all actors-except chorines.
Freda Valet is a nurse in the Old Women's Home. Rose Reiss, Lily Ulman and
Florence Sheim are all kindergarten teachers, although Miss Sheim acts as a tax collector

SENIOR YEAR 'Book 9
Ruth Zucker! We are astonished! Tell the audience what you are doing here-
Miss Tusa is listening expectantly. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, and others, Ruth is now
a professor for shall we call her professorette?j of English at Yale! She ufould be
persuaded by the Boola Boola boys and their big, collegiate brother,
Eli. Dr. Zucker likes racoon coats-if Phi Beta Kappa keys are
dangling underneath their shaggy exteriors.
Kenneth Castellanos, having at length achieved his life-time
ambition, is a well-paid columnist on "The Daily Squawkf' His
columns are eagerly awaited by his public each day, and they
are so vitally comical, that nobody even notices his sometimes
glaring errors in English. Ah, yes, he has been successful, as
such things go. He has learned the ways of the world, and the sorrows thereof. But
he is not happy, and never shall he be happy until the day when the dawn of his
hopes breaks with a roseate hue-when he shall once again return to his beloved
Brooklyn, and be able- to order ecstatically-''frankfurter and roll. And step on it"!
And Mildred Geller will bring it to him! QApplausej
Mary Kraska is going to swim the Atlantic Ocean under water next week. We
hope a submarine helps her out, she might forget to catch herlsecond wind, and before
she can say "Fire", she'll have lost her first. Then where'll she be? Her third wouldn't
do her much good in a case like that, now would it?
Laura Rasmussen has been made Secretary of the Treasury by President Qessj
Klein. We always said that women would have the way of it some day. Hush, my pro-
phetic soul! jeannette Roth watches over Laura to see that she does not abscond with
any money. For all we know, they may be plotting to monopolize the gold supply of
the whole world-they're ready to propose an amendment to that effect, we'll wager.
"Oh, oh! Please wait, do, Father Time."
"Time waits for no man," solemnly replies the stage manager. "Oh, but I am
But he is gone, the curtain has again fallen, and we must wait another hundred
years for permission to again unveil the future.
