First the pre-school child, Clinging to mama's skirt in sudden fear. Then we have the jaunty kindergartener VVith his blocks and colored sugar candy. And then the whining grade-boy, with his yo-yo And shining morning face, creeping like a snail Unwillingly to school. Then the junior-high boy, Sighing like a furnace, with a woeful ballad Madewto his teacherls eyebrow. Then the sophomore, Full of strange ideas, and a fuzz upon his lipg Jealous inhhonor, eager and earnest to learn, Upholding his school's traditions Even across the river. And then the junior, Knowing a little, but puffed up a bit, With eyes aglow, and fuzz but slightly trimmed, Full of wise saws and modern instancesg And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into that of the digniiied senior VVith his raccoon coat and his saxophone, His gaudy hose of nightmare hues, drooping, Round his ankleg and his big manly voice Booming, making all the sweet young things gaze Longingly after him.r-Last -scene of 'all That ends this strange eventful history, ' Is graduation and then job-hunting VV ith courage, hope, and ribboned diploma. -MARGARET WILLEY. Winners in Personality Contest In a contest sponsored by the Senior Quill Staff, Virginia Ward and Dale Batesole were chosen as the two seniors with the most outstanding person- ality. Close runners-up were Merritt Hammans and VVil1na Shaw. All of these seniors have been interested in extra-curricular activities during their three years in East High. Virginia has been of great service to the school. She has been president of the Zetagathean Literary Society, secretary of the Senior Class, and an important member of the Student Council Citizenship committee. Dale's ac- tivities are almost too numerous to mention. but the most important of the offices which he held were: President of the Student Council, president of E Epi Tan, the senior class, and cheerleader captain. VVilma's extra-curricu- lar activities are well known, for she has been an active member in several clubs, while Merritt has- won distinction through his efforts in extemporaneous speaking. It is very' evident that 'the selection of these seniors is justified. Page Five X i"""' 'E Ambitions ! ! Evidently some of the girls in the senior class thought that the committee was conducting a matrimonial bureau when it asked them to give their secret ambitions. F ive of them published the fact that they were looking for hus- bands to support them when they had completed their high school course. These lovelorn maidens are .l----- S---an-W , E-- P---- , A A---, R-- L---, and R--+ S---M. Let's wish them success! And we have a future Rudy Vallee right here in East High. Dale Batesole proudly claims that as his goal of dreams. There is little doubt that he will succeed since everyone, even himself, admits that he is the answer to a maidenis prayer. Harry Breeding wants to play the saxophone as melodiously as julian Lutz can. The height of ambition, however, is attained by Norman Anderson. He will be satisfied if he can contract sleeping sickness and revel in pleasant dreams the remainder of his life. No work, no noise. no annoyance'-just calm, peaceful sleep. Erma Romans desires to become sylphlike, and Herbert Germar and VValter Jones evidently need "pity," for both have picked a "Ruth" to complete their dreams. Although the joyful anticipations of graduation seem to have colored the dreams of many seniors, some of the more serious have confessed their real ambitions. Maxine Shetterly will become a journalist, she hopes. Clayton Bjork, Bob Falls, and Harry Gaskell may be soaring high above the clouds in their own airplanes if dreams come true. Are George johnson and Or- ville Hoehmuth serious in their ambitious to become president? Of course, both will succeed if they are only wise enough not to oppose each other in the election. The rest of us seniors can assure them now that in such a case "we'll be sitting on their doorstep." "I Crown Thee King" Tradition says, in the annals of East, That a Queen must be crowned when snow lies deep And the wintry winds whistle, shriek. and moan. So, following custom, our Senior Class Elected as Snow Queen, Helen, so fair. Bland, as the Cardinal thrilled all the hearts. And there to the strains of a regal march They stately did walk down all the long hall And up to the throne, past envious friends. The pages who carried the royal trains Were Eric and Margaret, smallest in class. In dignity solemn, Bland took the crown, And said, as he placed it on Helen's head, "I crown thee King of the Snow Festival l" Page Six ..- -Q-Q-ze N ' ' .

Page Twenty-six l l T If SCENAIQI We Interview Miss Hamper My first assignment, to interview a great Shakespearean actress, was begun with high hopes and clammy hands. Vile, my fellow reporter and I, made numerous hurried explorations into narrow and inky recesses of alleyways and were frightened into hys- terical giggles by the stage manager who thrust his head out of a doorway and snarled, "NN hat the heck are you lookin' for ?,' Of course, one doesn't expect a man who wears a derby and a checked vest, and who holds a cigar stub with a frayed end wedged inthe corner of his mouth, to speak Bos- tonian English, but at least he could be a little more gentlemanly, we thought. On satisfying himself thatpwe were merely hunting for the elusive stage door, he ushered us into the austere presence of the chief manager, who told us to hurry and dress. Dress? We finally explained to him that we were not extra girls, but reporters. "Some college paper, eh F" he inquired. Of course, since I was so awed by my surroundings, I misunderstood and thought he said, "Some comic paper ?" I answered as sarcastically as I could in defense of my beloved Quill, "No, it's a high school paper l" He became quite angry and motioned us impolitely to be seated on a property trunk, from which point of vantage we could catch a glimpse through the open door of the star's wardrobe. Exquisite gowns, brocaded slippers, gorgeous headdresses were Hung around in careless array. Vile watched the scenes being shifted and heard the hero Cin suspendersj drawl about the Hdwedful lawn-lord who dared to charge him five dollars fo' a room. Imahginef' Then while we were listening to the discordant tuning of the orchestra. the publicity manager of the actress entered and announced that although we had a previous engagement, Miss Hamper was "too busyy' to see us, as she had "only ten minutes to -dress." Perhaps he was remembering how, and in what manner, we had made the appointment. Nervous at phoning such a celebrity, we had asked. "Is this Miss Hamper?" in spite of the fact that it was an unmistakably masculine voice that said "Hello Y" He was "sorry, of course," but not nearly so sorry as were we two crestfallen reporters, who made our exit out of the stage door and down the alley.

Have you ever asked permission to get a drink of water and been re- fused? I suppose that has been the experience of almost every pupil in East High. After mustering up courage to ask, and preparing yourself for a nice, cold drink, the teacher very politely tells you to "Wait until the end of the period." It is almost too much to stand. You wonder at such a time as this, how a teacher could be so cruel as to make you wait until the end of the period. When the bell finally rings, you are so desperate that you dash madly down the hall fto the amazement and discomfiture of the other studentsj to find others just as thirsty as yourself, awaiting their turn at the fountain. After three or four people have satisfied their thirst, and you are becoming fearful of the water supply, your turn finally comes. just then the next bell rings! You gulp down a few mouthfuls of water and dash frantically for your next class. There you are given a severe chastisement and asked kindly f or unkindlyj, "Please bring a slip to me." Such is the price of a drink of water. ' A - CLIFFORD T HORNE, '31. Page Tweutyaeight 2 i . 3733, Stop! Caution! Go! The ringing of the bell at 3:15 starts East High traffic in the halls. Upon reaching the locker, I hear the rumor that there has been a wreck at the southwest basement intersection. In one corner lies a smart but smashed- up iiapper, and in the other a reckless and overtaxed dude. After seeing a collision of this kind, one realizes how necessary stop-and-go signals are at every corner. Everything is confusion. Books are thrown into the lockers in such haste, that they come banging back out again before the "pitcher" has time to slam the locker door shut. All at once a violent shove from behind sends me center-smashing into the locker. Upon looking around, I discover it is not a bandit or a murderer, but only one of my playful friends who is trying to help me put on a better football performance than Harry Rhems or Bob Falls can. Finally, in all the rush, I manage to get my books and attempt to depart. Amid calls of "Hi there,'jerry," and "So long, study hard," while I try to remember if I have all my books, I finally struggle out of the noisy thoroughfares of East High. . . VIRGINIA PARKER, '32, My F livver ' , To one who has always ridden a street car or who has been a back-seat driver, becoming the proud possessor ofa Ford is like becoming a million- aire. Through the kindness on the part of an old uncle and a box of cigars on mine, I became the owner of such a vehicle. This car was slightly bat- tered, dilapidated, and antique, but in my eyes it represented everything a. car should be. Man has always had trouble with his means of transportation, whether it was Adam's blister or the broken wheel of a stone chariot. There is nothing that grays a man's hair more quickly than a Ford does. Even in the days of Rome, Caesar, because of worrying about his chariot, always skilfully arranged his laurel wreath so thatit would hide his graying hair. You see that mine is not a modern worry. My uncle had said that my car would run like a clock-like a clock with a broken spring I discovered later. I had gone about half way home with my purchase when it began to act like a wild bronco or a fire wagon. It bucked and smoked. I was the object of many joking remarks from the sidewalks, but I stayed with it until I reachedl home. There I phoned my uncle, followed his advice, and finally charmed my car to run smoothly again. Evidently my Ford only wanted to be petted, for it ran well for two days before it developed another spell. Again I phoned my uncle and then applied his advice. Sometimes it fooled me by going into different spells, but my uncle seemed' to have all the causes diagnosed thoroughly, for he always prescribed the proper remedy. Again I say that my Ford is just the same to me as a million dollars, for if I had the million, I wouldn't know what to do with it, and I don't know what to do with my iiivver. . JOHN BRILL, '3l.

It wasn't long before my coach drew up, and stepping in, I sank down on the soft cushions. VV e soon arrived at our destination, otherwise East High School. Stepping daintily out, walking slowly, and looking out for mud puddles at the same time, I grandly walked up the steps. There muster- ing all my courage, I grasped my partner's arm and walked in. My feelings were those of any proud, half-frightened, awed, but dignified little IOB, who was attending her first banquet. Giggling nervously, we craned our necks and oh'd and ah'd at the gowns of the fair ladies. Although my new slippers were still a little stiff, I was proud that I could boast of such a dainty little foot. It wasn't long before word was passed that we were to proceed to the banquet. Moving with the rest of the noisy, chattering, joyous group, we soon found ourselves in the banquet hall. Oh, what luck! Seated right next to a teacher. I'd make no mistakes now. It seemed, as I ate, that everybody was looking at me Cthough there really wasn't much to look atj. Seeing that my potato was getting danger- ously near the edge of the plate, I took my fork and hastily pushed it safely inland. Soon I was conscious that the seat of my backless chair was becoming uncomfortably hard! Oh, for a soft pillow! A brilliant neighbor suggested that we lean on the table, but fortunately I remembered the suggestion of our etiquette booklet. As I listened to the eloquent toast program, I was thrilled to be among such a representative group, yet I was vaguely disappointed because no fair prince asked me to try on the glass slipper. Haughtily, I found my girl friend, put on my silken cloak, and awaited the appearance of my coach. But, lo! like poor Cinderella's gorgeous equipage, it had vanished, and I walked home. BELLE LEVEY, '32. Page Thirty 35325 Masquerade A Grouped about a bulletin posted in the corridor of the high school in a small town in Iowa, were three boys, one of whom seemed to command the respect of the other two. Was it respect or just duty? We shall see. Herbert VViley, president of the senior class and the commanding figure in the picture, had just posted the bulletin, when Arnold Bombocker and Joseph Craig, freshies, came up to survey the notice. "Did you read the notice, or are you too dumb? I sure put it over on you this time-you thought you were going to get even with me for selling you tickets to the elevator, by coming to our senior party. Listen to this'-Q 'NOTICEI All seniors are asked to attend the Senior Masquerade Ball at the school gym at 7 o'clock Friday evening. Everybody come and no one will be admitted unless in costume. NO FRESHMEN VVANTED! All fresh- men attending will be punished by the senior class. Every senior is asked to be sure and report any freshmen attendingf l' "Well, we won't let a little thing like that worry usf' replied Arnold, the most outspoken of the two. "Well, I wish you good luck. Good-byef' "Oh, I see, he doesn't want us to come to his party. Say, Arnold, I've got a scheme to fool him. Come on over tonight, and I'll tell you about it." is: in :ze The night of the party arrived. By seven the seniors were arriving in swarms, some in grotesque costumes and some in old discarded clothes, altogether making a great spectacle. "Classmates," announced Herbert, "the committee has decided that we shall not unmask until we serve. Everybody get a partner." In every game Herb got the same partner, and try as he would, .he could neither pierce the disguise nor shake her off for another girl, not that he wanted to, but he thought it would be more mannerly if he did. His partner was quite good looking, so far as he could see. She clung to him like a leech, and she never spoke unless necessity demanded it. A queer partner, yet by the end of the gqmes, Herbert almost loved her. He asked to take her home. This she refused, saying that she had an escort. When she pointed out her escort, Herbert saw something familiar about the figure, but could not place him. Herbert left Olive, as she called herself, to make the announcement that it was now time to unmask. NrVhen he returned, he found her and also her escort gone. He searched high and low without success. Finally he went out on the porch where he found her sitting on the steps talking to her companion. Herbert looked. Then be looked again with amazement, for Olive was without her mask and wig. Herbert after much difficulty, recog- nized 'Olive' as Arnold, and her companion as Joseph. "Why-ah-er-you know what that bulletin said-," he finally stam- mered. "It said that the senior class would punish all freshmen who at- tended. And," he added dangerously, "I am the senior president, and so I will be the judge. I feel sorry for you." "Why worry over a little thing like that P" replied Arnold coolly. "I have Fixed that. I let everyone know that you asked to take me home." "Well, what has that to do with my reporting you ?" "Plenty. If you report us, then we will make you the laughing stock of the school." - Page Thirty-one 59, "VVhy-why-you blackmailer l" "Call it what you want, but we just wanted to take you down from your thigh horse to see what you are made of." ' There was a silence before Herbert again spoke. "Well, I can see only one thingto do, and that is to report you regardless of my humility. I made thefrule, and I'm going to live up to itf' Pk - Pk Pk ' I -The report 'was made, and Arnold and joseph reported the next day before the 'senior class to receive their punishment. ' f A V "Yoii,fknow you cau't expect sympathy from the seniors, because you violatedfa' 'senior rule," Herbert said. Herbert was acting in the capacity of 'judgeeisifqce he was the class president. i I "Yes, sir," replied Arnold and joseph Winking at one another. Herbert. who noticedthe wink, turned hot and then cold when he got the meaning. There was a silence as Herbertis mind was debating whether he should ask the fatal question or not. His mind was in a turmoil, but out of this maelstrom came the answer-to do or die. "Why did you attend the party? Give your reasons, if any." "Oh, we just went because we wanted to have some fun." , "In.what way ?" asked Herbert, his heart going like a trip-hammer. The way ina which they answered this question would mean whether he would be the laughing stock of the school 'or not. Would they, or would they not? 'ff "Oh, no way at all. We just wentand got caught. I'm sorry we put you to the trouble of catching us. We didn't mean it that way." "What,faren't they going to tell onme ?" thought Herbert. "Well, they surely are white, and I'm going to showthem that I can be just as white as' they are." ."Classmates, may I have a few minutes alone with the culprits? I think I have a remedy for their case." - When all of the students had filed out, Herbert approached Arnold and joseph with his outstretched hand. "Shake, fellows. I.'ve been a fool. You surely have treated me whitef, , At this they shook hands and 'Arnold and Joseph knew that they had found a friend. "N ow tell me why you didn't tell on me. ' I surely deserved it for what I have done to you." "Well, 'we got into an argument, joseph and I. I said that you had a little good in you, while joseph said that you didn't have any. You proved that I was right when you saw your duty and reported us, even though it would have made you the joke of 'the school. 'We didnlt have any intentions of telling on you. VVe had a lot of fun, and we are willing to take our medicine. No one but us three will ever know what happened the night of the party." "You understand that you will have to be punished, because you broke a schoolgrule. ,I can do nothing to help you, but I'll try." ' "Yes, sir." Page Thirty-two W? sTt""' S ie 'When the verdict was received, it was this: "We, the seniors, find Arnold and joseph guilty of breaking a senior rule. This is a very serious offense. We recommend that they be given the worst torture possible, that of attending the senior play. VVe overheard your conversation, and we realize that we needed to he taken off our high horse. But let it go at that. VVe recommend that the judge shall show no mercy toward the offenders." "I hereby sentence Arnold Bombocker and Joseph Craig to be tortured by attending the senior class play. Officer, take them away." p RUSSELL OLSON, '3l. Report Cards The grades that teachers do give out, Are scandalous to the eyes. The fours and tives are favorites, Though the ones and twos are high. They sternly say, 'cWork harder l" But even though you try, The fours and fives keep coming . And the ones and twos are shy. BERNICE LASSITER, '30. Q - M F b V ,Pleasures of Flying It was exciting at the start in spite of the fact that there was some delay. Delays are to be expected, for it isn't every day that one takes an airplane ride. Prospective passengers can be over-cautious and arouse not a little anger in the excited ones who are anxious to get started. 'I had been "up" before, but never in a twelve-passenger Ford plane. Three-motored monoplanes are a rare phenomenon at the Des Moines air! port, as one could easily tell from the astonished "Oh's,' and "Ah's".of the observers. Therefore, I was more than pleased when my uncle said that we were .going to ride in this huge plane which was the object of so much' curious attention. s ' ' 1 'In a short time, I found myself "up in the air," both in mind and ghody. This was lifeg sun shining on broad, steel wings, turning them to silvery the sound of throbbing motorsg the feeling of being able to fly,.toeHy over places where we had walked but a while before! There was the city which must havelooked as did Camelot in the misty distance. There were twenty miles of this ride, miles that flew like time itself and brought an end to it, much too soon. ' I would like to challenge any of the popular notions concerning the terrors of an airplane ride. These fears are slowly disappearing, but there are still many who deny themselves an afternoon of pleasure because of them. At no time did I have any other feeling than that of completenen- joyment. I would say to every one of you: "Spend your theatre money for a plane ride, there you will see the true drama of life with an unequaled setting and with real characters." I ' ' MARGARET PECK, '31. Page' Thirtylthree 5 ss ' Does It Pay to Advertise? My head grows light, and spots appear before my weary eyes, As folks continue preaching that "it pays to advertise." Our papers furnish loads of it and radios the same, While signboards, bills, and posters slip us many a silly name. We find that to be slender we must all smoke Lucky Strikes. And thatwhich "washes everything" most every housewife likes. Two score, ten and seven kinds of soup are made by Heinz, While Fisher gives to Chevrolets those graceful body lines. You'll find therejs not a cough within a carloacl of Old Golds, While others "walk a mile" just for a Camel we are told. And though "four out of every live" have "it" in some degree, I'd give the prize to Clara Bow if you were asking me. We read, too, that the greatest source of iron is raisin pies, But teacher says a vaster source in Colorado lies. While if you want a "velvet skin," you must use Ivory soap, But if you crave your schoolgirl face, Palmolive is the dope. We hope soon that a time will come when advertisements cease, So our poor brain will not be bored with slogans such as these. But I suppose that when we reach the "pearly gates" some day, The sight will be ,obscured from View by Stoner and McCray. j BERYL PEAVEY, '31, Practice for Football Those who unfortunately do not have ways of transportation other than the street car to go to school or to work have my sympathy. At breakfast, or some time before breakfast, I hear the familiar bell of the street car that just gets me to school on time. With a dash I'm out to meet it, coat and hat in one arm and books under the other. The conductor waits impatiently for my fare, while I search my pockets for my book of checks. 'He con- tinually commands the passengers to move up in the car, but everyone seems glued to his own particular spot. With uncertain jerks the car turns the corner of Sixteenth and Walnut. Fortunately, I am in a position from which I can glance out of the window and I begin to count the students waiting outside. I feel that if another person is packed into the car I just won't be able to live a moment longer. Nevertheless the crowd still piles on, and my space grows smaller and smaller. I begin to wonder when they will stop crowding on and if I will ever be able to get off. But relief is in sight for we are nearing Fourteenth and Grand, my destination. No danger of our passing that, for the con- tinuous ringing of bells warns the conductor, who casts a threatening glance in our direction. The car comes to a stop. The doors are opened. Every man for himself! No wonder East High has a good football team! CLARENCE SHAWVER, '30, Page Thirty-fear e "M so as .A i?"" T' The Russian Christmas The night before Rujestvo, or what welcall Christmas, is one of the busiest nights of the year for the whole family. VVe, the children, have to do the minor things in helping mother make the Kutchee. We have to peel apples, crack nuts, pop corn, and do many other. things. The Kutchee, a nationally known dish, is eaten in every Russian home for supper on Christ- mas Eve. In the front room, or the least used room, for the Russians have a habit of doing most of their living in the kitchen, the father is prepar- ing the Christmas tree. At first he puts on apples. then bright colored strips of cloth, strings of beads, popcorn, and many such things that help to make a tree beautiful. The tree has to be pretty enough to appeal to the eye ofthe Bobechka, who is going to leave toys and candy for the children. In the morning we are awakened by the singing voices of a group of small children, the Kulodiven, who will get a cooky or a piece of candy for their songs. "Edrick Pedrick dy Varavick Nama varavick dy Knishaf' -Russian Folk Song.. Three days later we have Nova Goda. Everybody, young and old, comes again. They sing carols and folk songs, but look! this time they are coming into the house. They reach into a little bag that they carry with them and take out a mixture of all kinds of grain, like wheat, corn, barley, rye, and other grains that are found in the Russian fields. They sprinkle us with this and say, "Zarovam Godum, Snora schacy, Zdororiam, nashita, pish- iniza," and many more Russian expressions. It would take more than a hundred words to write them all. Oh, no! the holiday is not over yet, for we have not had Christiana. On this day, our last day of holiday, a sled goes around to all the houses and collects -food and old clothes to be given to the poor. In the afternoon, everybody goes down to the river. A large cross has been cut out of the ice and has been covered with borsht, making it a beautiful red cross shining in the sun for all the world to see. The Batchishka comes to the river, followed by a large procession. The first thi11g I notice is a statue of St. Mary carried by four young men. All kinds of banners and pictures follow this. ' As the Batchishka approaches, he is handed a holy ax, with which he cuts a pulonka in the ice. He then proceeds to bless the water, called Swashchiona VVada, which is given to sick people as well as to sick cattle, and it is even sprinkled over the field in order to give a better crop. There are songs and merrymaking. VVhen it gets late, the people pack away their belongings and start for home. Sometimes they have to ride for many miles across the glistening snow. ABE ROSENP'ELD, '31l.' Page Thirty-ive Q I fig 6'Knights of the Airv 1 The "Knights of the Air" is a very interesting history of aviation. It is, in reality, composed of many short stories: thrilling tales of brave,,self- sacrificing men who struggled and strove mightily that they might realize their dreams, stirring accounts of the hardships and obstacles which 'the boys "over there" had to contend with, and rousing facts of the research Work of today. One does not realize, nor can he fully estimate, the work of theipioneers of aviation without the knowledge which this book extends. We know that we may take the information given in the book as absolute truth and fact, for the author is none other than our own celebrated army flier, Lieutenant Lester Maitland. I - ROBERT GREEN, '30. A New Acquaintance--Nicholas N ickleby In England I met one of the most interesting fellows I have ever known. Although he was not handsome, he had something in his make-up which attracted me and which held my interest. At his father's death, Nicholas Nickleby, who was just about my age, was left to care for his mother and his young sister. Having accepted this charge, he made many new acquain- tances, Who, with one or two exceptions, learned to like him a great deal. By his actions he showed me that one of these exceptions was his uncle, who, although able to give him very much needed assistance, was his greatest hindrance. In spite of this fact, my friend did everything in his power to make his mother and sister happy. I was astonished to learn how Nicholas and many other boys were treated at school. , I feel sure that the story of Nicholas Nickleby's life, with its hard- shipsand trials as well as good times, is the most interesting that I have ever read. , VIRGINIA WARD, '3O. 'cHenry Esmondi' "Henry Esmond," by William Thackeray, was a most interesting book to mee It is an historical novel concerning-the reign of Queen Anne and the beginning of the I-Ianoverian dynasty, during which time Addison and Steele, the original editors of the "Spectator Papers," lived. The whole of this work is written in the language of Queen Anne's time, even to the spelling. - With such a colorful period for a setting, it is no wonder that the novel is very interesting. For the student of history, thisebook is very commendable, and those taking English should read it also, not only for pleasure but for working material as well. BOYD KRAMER, '3O.

How true this statement is, and how easily it can be proved right here in East High. We are all familiar with the various tragedians of the stage and screen, but do we realize that we have such persons about us every day of the week? There is always someone in our classes who is continually magnifying his woes and telling sad stories of his daily hardships. H e delights in being tragic and creating melancholy effects on other people, The Happer, the sheik, the sluggard, the ambitious, the sarcastic, the re- served arise from their beds each morning and don the roles they have as- sumed for themselves. Evidently, they have chosen their roles because they are the easiest and best suited to their nature. And, as actors on the stage vary their roles, so can we vary ours. If we dislike ours, we can always change them into something better. VV e can strive for the "part" which, to our thinking, is the highest, and so become the ex- perienced and successful actors on the stage of life. Are We So Bad? Of course not! As far back as most of us can remember we have heard upon every side, denunciation of the indifference and wilfullness of the younger generation. Only very, very seldom have we heard feeble protest "on the other side of the fence." Gradually, we have grown conscious of the fact that we are supposed to be very bad, much worse than young people of any previous age. Conse- quently, we have given up all hope of ever attaining the ultimate ideal. Nevertheless, as a general class, the people of our generation are "square- shootersf' who are straight-forward in their. opinions and are fearless in the defense of their ideas. VVe hear much of the irresponsibility of those boys who drive ancient flivvers and wear coonskin coats. Yet, if Dad needs the spark plug changed in his car, he drives to a garage to have it done, while son, on his own resources, can dismantle his relic and reassemble it without having a single part left over. Doesn't this indicate that the younger generation is not so irresponsible? The dress of today is often a point of heated discussion. However, most people will admit that the comfortable and unaffected type of dress today is much more pleasing and appropriate than the stiff confining clothing of the "Gay Ninetiesf' T ' ' 1 Page Thiriy-Mite Q I 'Wi' X fe ' Crime is another evil which is often blamed on the modern youth, but statistics prove that ninety per cent of the crimes of today are committed by people of thirty-five to forty-five years of age. The frequenters of night clubs and other nefarious amusement houses are not young people as many are wont to assert, but, on the contrary, are the youth of thirty years ago. In truth, we seem to have been misjudged, as we are not half so bad as the sensational writers of the older generation have portrayed. However, just to prove that these impressions are wrong, let us continue on the upward trend and keep ourselves above reproach. Which Do You Prefer? I-Iow the tests of our day differ from those of long ago! The students of today have to have a more technical and general knowledge of affairs of the past, present, and future, while the students of the '70's knew only a few de- tailed items which they learned through the method of cramming and by burning the midnight oil, learning' by rote rather than by thinking. ' . ' For- instance, in an English examination, these were some of the ques- tions: Name the figures of speech in "Snowbound." Give a synopsis of a certain passage you read recently in a literary gem. And in civics: Give the names of the President's cabinet. VV hat is the salary of the United States and state senators? What are the duties of the Chief justice of the Supreme Court? In these questions emphasis is laid upon mere memory detail. , In contrast to this is the Edison Brain Derby, as the newspaper reporters term it-the most comprehensive and the best known test of today. The pur- pose of this examination as described in the rules, was "to stimulate the in- terest of the youth of America in mental development, with particular em- phasis on scientific matters, and, more generally, in the high ideals that make for the highest type of American manhood? Wilbur Brotherton I-Iuston, sixteen, answered the following questions in this famous examination. Could you? 1, When you read the names of the following persons, what fact is im- mediately associated with them in your mind? Answer in one or two words in each case.

Twenty yard dashes, hop-skips and jumps, and other forms of lively movements were frequently observed in the dancers' efforts to avoid the lemon so willingly forced on them by other anxious couples.

Page Fartyftiluo Student Council Holds Banquet The Student Council's semi-annual banquet was held in the cafeteria Tuesday evening, December lOth. Those present besides the council members included the faculty and three members from each home room.' The dinner program was as follows: 1 Toastmaster, Dale Batesoleg a reading by Lucille Buckg whistling solo by Grant Swansong an address by Mr. Burtong a talk by Margaret Barrong several songs by the Boys, Quartette. composed of Carl johnson. Harry Breeding, Lloyd Latham, and Wlarden Van Gundyg musical reading by Vir- ginia Pattersong and an address by Mr. Cress O. Hoyt, former East High football coach. Art Students Help lf it were not for the services of the pupils in the art department, the cost for engraving in the Quill would be much higher than it is at present. For the last two issues of the Quill, the art students have made the linoleum cuts for the headings, which give originality and variety to the Quill. Because of these cuts, our school publication has a more modern note. The following students deserve special recognition for their work: Ber- nice Main, Elizabeth Patterson, Vklilma Shore, Edward McCoy, Harold VVil- son, Clayton Bjork, Virgil Hoos, Clarence Shawver, Alton Upchurch and Arthur Lewis. East High Shines in Extemporaneous Contest At the annual extemporaneous contest held at Lincoln High, Friday, December 6th, East High was ably represented by Ruth Rouss and Merritt Hammans, who won the highest honors for the school. In individual rank- ing, Merritt, speaking on the "Hague Conference," won first place, while Ruth, speaking on the "Palestine Riotsf' won fourth honors. Anyone who has ever participated in these contests will surely appreciate the earnest efforts which Ruth and Merritt have put forth for the interests of the school. East Enjoys First Night Game Under the glare of artificial lights, Friday night, November 15th, the old Red and Black settled the complicated "triangle-tie" prevailing between North, Roovsevelt. and East. This final victorious game of the football season also proved to be the inauguration of the high school night games. Rooters for the North High Bears, although constantly reminding us of their presence by the wild clamor of hurrahs and shouts. were frequently glimpsed for a fieeting moment as the large spotlights played upon the oppo- site sections of the stadium during the half. Although there was a heavy fog, an enthusiastic face or a yelling, jumping figure was frequently seen as our especially constructed torches illuminated our cheering group. The enormous crowd present showed both the popularity of night football and the general interest taken in East High by those directly or indirectly associated with the school. VVhat could have been a more Fitting conclusion for the celebration of our victory than the ostentatious display of fireworks following the contest? Now that the popularity of the night games is established. we are confident that we may expect more of them in subsequent gridiron struggles. Page F ditysihfee a...1'Q A Kiss for Cinderella , The comedy-drama, "A Kiss for Cinderella," was presented December 5th and 6th under the direction of East High's dramatic coach, Miss Wood- man. The plot of the play centers around an episode in the life of Cinders, apathetic slavey of London. As the World War is in progress at the time, Cinders does her "bit" by secretly caring for several small children, all of different nationalities. Cinders, though possessing no distinctive beauty, is exceedingly proud of her small, attractive feet. Having read the tale of "Cinderella," she feels that she will gain a prince in the same manner in which the young lady of the fairy tale did. A ball room scene, which took a ,great deal of work to produce on the stage, is a distinctive part of the pro- duction. Romance in the form of a policeman enters the life of Cinders and finally brings her happiness. The play was one that appealed to young and old alike and was well received by the audience.

V ernon Holstad A Courtesy Interests East High If the enthusiasm shown by the home rooms in the recent courtesy booklet campaign is an indication, then East High students are very inter- ested in etiquette. Emily Post has become for them a guiding star. The following scene is typical of the happenings at East High during the past few weeks. On a certain morning every week one of the members of the citizenship committee could be seen Hitting from room to room with the polite inquiry, "Do you have your courtesy summary ready?,' ,Then ensued a sorting and shuffling of papers until the best summary was chosen. The following morning when the bulletin was read, every person in each home room sat round-eyed and eager, hoping to hear the announcement that his home room's summary had been chosen for the final copy. The winning home rooms in the various summaries are: E 1. Class room.and corridor courtesy: Essay type, 122 g honorable men- tion, 317. Series type, 1195 honorable mention, 110. 2. Correct assembly conduct: Essay type, 1045 honorable mention, 10. Series type, 119, honorable mention, 319. 3. School party etiquette: Series type, 119g honorable- mention, 10, annex, and 122.

The art of conversation: Series type, 306, honorable mention, 203. Essay type, .205, honorable mention, 118. ' No first places were awarded for the History and Traditions nor for the Score Card, since the final copies that are to go into the book are to be be compilations of all the best suggestions sent in by the home rooms. The most inclusive reports on the Traditions and History of our School were submitted by Rooms 205, 7, 317, 308, 202 and 110. The score cards sub- mitted by 306, 122, 205, 7, and 317 were especially deserving of honorable mention, . Pail Forty-five W In Our Assembly Notebook 'Tm Forever Blowing Bubblesl' might easily have been the theme song of the glass blowing demonstration presented by Mr. and Mrs. Howell at Eas-t High Monday, November 18th. These distinguished visitors showed Lee Township students the fascinating procedure of bending and blowing glass, forming trinkets, vases, and bubbles, and even spinning a thin thread from what we recognize as ordinary window glass. Mr. Howell learned the trade, which is commonly spoken of as Bohemian glass blowing, from his father, who in turn learned it from his father in Switzerland. Like exhibitions have been planned in all of the principal schools of the United States so that pupils may learn the practical value of glass blowing as demonstrated in the making of scientific instruments and apparatus. For the First time in the school's history, the East Indian atmosphere was imparted to East High students Tuesday, December Sd, by Professor D. K. Karve of Poona, India, who endeavored to make clear some of the vital social problems confronting his native country today. For the past forty years, Professor Karve has been devoting his time and energies in an effort to lift the heavy burdens from the shoulders of the down-trodden women of his country. This remarkable social worker has lived to see the beneficial results of his work in the establishment of ten junior high schools, five senior high schools, and two colleges, all for the education of India's young women. Quiz Book Contest Appeals to Students This semester progressive East High students have been studying hard for a Quiz Book contest, sponsored by the American Anti-Saloon League. After six weeks of studying, six entrants have survived the perplexing ques- tions concerning the constitution and alcoholic stimulants. These contestants are as follows: Ruth Rouss, Margaret Sutherland, Marguerite VVright, Paul Gifford, Richard McGahan. and Delmar Moon. Thursday, December 19, the winners at East High were announced as Ruth Rouss and Delmar Moon. These two students will represent the school in the county finals to be held at the court house, Saturday, December 21. Page Forty-.r1'x. 3 X ii East Plans Landscaping Course If a suflicient number of pupils indicate their desire to take a course in landscaping architecture, this new subject will be offered in the East High curriculum beginning with the mid-year semester, 1930. The course in home landscaping will attempt to present in non-technical language the principles of making the grounds of the home more attractive and livable. Such fundamental knowledge as selecting the lot, locating the house, and constructing the drive and walks, will be included in the landscaping dis- cussions. Some time will be devoted to the study of the origin and fertiliza- tion of soils, the growth and propagation of plants, and the planting and care of trees and shrubs. To the students who are interested in art and who appreciate art in its various forms, it will indeed be an opportunity to study this fascinating course under the guidance of Francis Robinson, one of Des Moines' prominent architects and designers. Some Work, But Mostly Play! The enjoyment derived from attending a convention is enhanced 'snot only because a minimum amount of exertion is required, but also, because these conventions serve as little vacation trips from the daily routine of Latin and English. lt is most certain that the members who represented East High at the Iowa State High School Press Convention, November 15-16, Margaret Barron, Marian Grimes, Herbert Germar, Paul Gifford, Lloyd Taylor and Harold Shover, would not object to attending another series of lectures such as were given at Grinnell College. The arduous tasks of registration and of attending lectures on news- writing occupied their immediate attention. Nevertheless. at times the de- licious odor of -the food served in the college dining rooms attracted an even greater interest than did talks on how to make our magazine more attractive. These students, however, considered it a privilege to listen to the advice of men and women who have "played', the newspaper game for years, and who willingly answered innumerable questions concerning the problems of editing a school magazine or a school newspaper. A banquet in the evening and the Grinnell-Carleton game the following afternoon rounded out a pleasant social program. As for the valuable information received at these lectures, it is certain that no one will ever regret a trip to a college where such friendliness and hospitality are extended to high school students. An Appreciation To the students and teachers of East High, the sudden death of Marjorie Long was an irreconcilable loss. Marjorie, who was a member of the senior graduating class, was very popular among her fellow-students and will long be remembered for her helpful, kindly ways and her cheery smile. Her large number of friends and acquaintances hold a place for her in their hearts which time cannot obliterate. I With deep regret, East High learned of the tragic death of one of its prominent sophomores, Freeman Frost. Since Freeman was a member of the tennis team, his loyal service to East High will be missed by all. His many friends realize that they have lost a dear companion. Page Forty-seven Pape Ferty-eight SDECIALT ACTS What Do Assemblies Mean to You? g P Aren't assemblies interesting, pleasant affairs? Don't you watch the hands of the clock eagerly, as they slowly wind their way toward the appointed time for the assembly? Don't you pack your books together quickly a couple of minutes before time for the bell to ring and sit there tensely wait- ing to be freed from that last, dull, long hour of study? lNhen that bell rings, don't you spring to your feet and hasten out of the classroom into the corridor to join the assembly-bound throng? As you jostle hastily through the auditorium doors and step gaily down the aisles, doesn't the stirring, invigorating music of the band arouse your emotions? After a frantic dash for a seat, don't you settle comfortably in your chair and begin to enjoy the noise and confusion as I do? Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of a small boy, slouching down in his seat, slyly slipping the last crumbs of the candy bar into his mouth, as he furtively watches the stern figure of a passing teacher, and you can then see the great grin of satisfaction he gets from his stolen pleasure. Or you may hear a plump girl hum her version of the latest song in a tuneless voice, as she infiicts vicious jabs on her innocent gum trying to emphasize the rhythm of attempted melody. As you watch the commotion about you, don't you feel the intense atmosphere of unrest and excitement as the curious crowd awaits the start of the program? VVhether the assembly be one of those gay, lively, enthusi- astic pep meetings, or a splendid, instructive lecture by a celebrated person, or just an amusing entertainment, the entire audience seems to be held together by a strong bond of school spirit, and your whole day is made brighter because of the assembly.

Comes Ten Thousand Miles to East High A desire to study has brought Luciano Florendo, a Filipino boy, ten thou- sand miles to East High. Landing at Portland, Oregon, when only fifteen, he has' found his way to Des Moines. VVith a little knowledge of the English language and the ability to work, Luciano finally established himself as a part- time student. By careful' and painstaking study Luciano, today, can rank Well in scholarship with any of the students. About 1936, he plans to return to his home where he will be anxiously ex- pected by his family: one sister and five brothers. Luciano plans to complete his college career before returning. The following letter explains in his own style his reactions to East High. Dear Editor: I could not refrain to reply to my friendis inquiry and to express my im- pression about East High. Many students think that I am a government stu- dent or supported by my folks. But no, my dear friends, I am working my way throughvschool. Of course, my folks wanted to help nie, but I preferred and feel prouder of myself to be a self-supporting student. If I had their financial help, I might not have learned some of the knack of making a living, or tried the thrill of living, or enjoyed the early steps of life. East High is to me one of the best schools in the world-if not the best. I like and admire its magnificent architecture, and the cooperation and en- thusiasm of the student body. My three years' stay in East Highs has been very pleasant and enjoyable. My home is more than ten thousand miles away from here but it never seems that far in East High. I am alll alone in this country but never feel lonesome in East High. All of these are due to the fact that East High students are kind, honest, courteous, friendly, and true pals to me. , A LUCIANO FLORENDO. ' I A I Suspended i 'Twasia dark and stormy night! Q A I " Three valiant horse thieves rode desperately up the hill. Shortly before they reached the summit, they were overtaken by a mob of infuriated vigi- lantes who were very disrespectful in their procedure. They laid rough hands upon their victims' quaking shoulders and placed a hempen "necktie" about each tender neck. The opposite ends of the ropes were tied to a convenient tree limb, and the stolen horses were abruptly urged from beneath their guilty riders, leaving them dangling by their cervical regions. This hill is today surmounted by an edifice of learning second to none in Des Moines. The executioneris tree occupies a prominent place in front of the school and is now being rejuvenated at a cost of one hundred and eighty some dollars. The reason for this expenditure is that the invaluable tra- ditions connected with this tree must be retained for the benefit of future generations. To those "doubting Tl1011lZlSCS,, who scoff with glee let it beglcnown that this story is ab-so-lutely true. I H ' I Page Fifty h Q' x in., ' Close Ups The Quill was given a first class honor rating by the National Scholastic Press Association for the school year of 1928-29. It was brought out in delving into the past history of East High that the first graduating class consisted of one member, Elizabeth Matthews, who graduated in 1871. ln contrast, more than one hundred and sixty students will be graduated from East High this semester.

Mr. Perry. the former business adviser of the Quill, is now teaching in the Lincoln High School at Milwaukee. g The Boys' Quartet, under the name of "Tall Corn Melody Boys," won a five dollar prize at the Paramount Theatre. Lowell Ebersole has been awarded an llonor Medal from the Boy Scouts of America for saving the life of a Mr. Armitage, who was injured in an .auto accident. 1 A iIt has been discovered, in a far past issue of the Quill, that a chemistry teacher named our school publication. Miss Church, a well known teacher here, has confessed that she is guilty. L ' ' No drastic action will be taken. Page Fiftyaom e 'fe er fgixpa e Do We Know Our School? , If you were to be asked about the significance of our anniversary assem- bly, or about the ivy' on the front of the building, or the Foster or Garver Trophies, or who some of East High's notable graduates Were, could you an- swer correctly? It would indeed be commendable if more of our students could answer questions like these. With this in mind the citizenship committee intended, by sponsoring this small project on the History and Traditions of East High, to acquaint the students with the past of our school. Some of the write-ups that were handed into the committee illustrate the necessity of a written history of our school. Many did not know how the furniture was moved from the old building into the new. Many did not know from what source and at what time our colors were originated. Some said Miss Goodrell appointed a committee to select a motto for the school. Others said the school board offered a prize for the best one, while still others said the architects, in conjunction with the school board, offered a prize in order that they might have a motto to engrave above the front door. Indeed, not everybody knew who contributed the mottog how it happened we had Greek architecture instead of Moorish or Roman, as one report saidg and many did not know that the tune to our East High song was taken from a popular song hit of the time. Surely we, the students of a school that has the glorious past, grand pres- ent, and the promising future that East High has, are not going to leave it without knowing of its history and traditions. -LOWELL DUNLAVY Extra!!! The Prince of Hoboes Confesses At last Van Dine can revert to writing mysteries, for the identity of the "Prince of Hoboes" has been revealed. William Harrison, prominent in East High circles fzeros and other marksj, told an inquisitive editor that he was guilty and readily explained the details of his capture. Mr. Harrison believes that an inferiority complex has led to the discovery of his personage. "It is my left hand," he said, "that has caused the trouble because I am a southpaw and use this Cla main droitej for many things." Recently, at the Student Council Banquet he was much at ease being left-handed, in a right- handed banquet, because it was so one-sided. "After all, a banquet is for the survival of the fittest, so what chance had I P" questioned the Prince. In all of his travels he has observed, he states, that right-handedness is becoming less popular. For example, Harrison explained that all street cars of the various cities in which he has visited are controlled by the left hand of the motorman. 'The right hand," continued Mr. Harrison, "is used only for applying the brakes which tend to delay progress. In closing, let me state that I regret that my identity as the Prince of Hoboes is to be made universal, but I guess that Lindbergh won't mind. You can get my picture from the prominent court houses," concluded Mr. Harrison. Pape Fifty-two TH If I3l LLIBDAIQD just as the Billboard, the national theatrical magazine, chronicles the do- ings of all the stage people, so does our Billboard record the activities of our East High students. By giving glimpses of student life, our Billboard hopes to create a spirit of friendliness, understanding, and loyalty among the various organizations of East High. Student Council Of all the many worthwhile projects handled by our Student Council, the most important is the work done by the Citizenship Committee with the help of the council and the home rooms. This committee has been hard at work on the school book of courtesy which will contain valuable information concern- ing school life, courtesy, and traditions. The value of this book is great not only to students now in East High, but to those students who will be here in years to come. Although the Student Council has been very busy this year with projects, they, nevertheless, have had time and opportunity for some social diversion. On October 15 the council entertained the Parent-Teachers' Association with a novel program and refreshments. The good fellowship pervading the Stu- dent Council banquet, December 10, at which time tour students of each home room were present, was very apparent. ,, Club Settings The Home Economics Club, under the direction of Miss Wetzsteiii and Miss May, worked hard just before Christmas on gifts for the poor. The girls in the club repainted and mended many toys, dressed dolls, and made scrap-books which gave many a destitute child a Happy Christmas. During this semester the members of the Shorthand Club have been taking tests to gain membership in the Order of Gregg Artists. Each member of the club who wished to join the O. G. A. must make a copy ot some article in the current "Gregg VVriter', and send it to the Gregg Company. If her copy is well done, the pupil will receive a certificate of membership, if it is not up to standard, the copy is returned with suggestions as to how the copy may be im- proved, Page F ifty-threz iuedacafe ess The Girl Reserves has been reorganized in East High this semester and has elected the following ollicers for the semester: president, Kathryn Ander- son, vice president, Ruth Kessler, secretary-treasurer, Anna Mae Fulton. The purpose of the Sodalitas Romana, or Latin Club, is to create more interest in the Latin language and Roman customs. The club plans to give another Roman Banquet, which has become an annual event since it was init- iated two years ago. The Philomathean and the Zetagathean held a joint meeting, December 12, in 311. Both clubs have also had evening parties this semester, the Philo- mathean December 14, and the Zetagathean january 10. -V On November 13, the Aeolian Club initiated their new members. The su- perstitious members ot this club had their beliefs verified, for the initiation was 'certainly a tough one. The Purple Mask, the boys, dramatic club, presented one of O'Neill's sea plays, "In the Zone," at their meeting, january 10. The Forensic Club this semester has had many debates and externporan- eous speeches at their programs. ln addition to this work, the club is planning a joint party with their rival, the B Epi Tan, which will be held January 17, 1930. , The Vignolian Club has had some very interesting programs. Their ad- viser, Mr. Mayo, has appeared on H.l11 twice this semester, and Mr. Ralph E. Sawyer, a Des Moines architect, also gave a talk about "Modern Friends in Architecture." The programs ot the Shakespearean Literary Society have consisted this semester of music, and a study of Shakespearels plays. The music for these programs was furnished by the following students: Evelyn T eander, Ruth Rouss. Merritt Hammans, piano solos, Margaret Willey, violin solo, Harry Breeding, vocal solo, and julian Lutz, saxophone solo. Interesting extracts from the following Shakespearean plays, "The Merchant of Venicef' given by Erma Romans, "1':l'an1let," by Virginia VVardg and "Romeo and Juliet," by Louise Loizeaux, were presented. E H2 R fEast High Home Roomsj In Home Room 205 there are tive members of the Quill staff: Louise Loizeaux, Ardis Roberts, Felix yVi1liams, Lloyd Reise, and Lester Bishop. At various times during the semester the members of Home Room 113 have been entertained by their home room teacher, M r. Houser. Report has it that Mr. Houser is very proficient in many different dialects. This semester has been a busy one for the members of Home Room 10, who have been working on footstools and other pieces of furniture. In addi- tion to regular class work, some of these boys have helped Mr. Hostetter with his stage work. Page, Fifty-fam' ..,-Qj 1' Q T Home Room 107 has worked out an efficient schedule which is 'followed in that room each week. Mondays are devoted to the weeklybulletiqnsg Tuesdays are used to discuss the projects which are being conducted at the timeg Wed- nesdays, Evelyn Teander gives her student council reportg Thursdays are set aside for current events which are presented by various members of the home roomy and Fridays are used as a social morning. . Did you 'know that East High has a genuine life-sized blueprint machine? It's a fact! This machine is lodged in the remote southwest corner of our building, in Home Room 22. Home Room 104 has walked away with most of the home room contests this semester. This home room has won both the P, T. A. membership cam- paign and the Quill drive. . H Home Room 307 tells us that Mr. Jones' favorite expression is, f'I can't makeyou think, but I can give you something to think about." just ask any member of 307 if this saying is false. Lucky Home Room 209! At their party this semester the members of this home room danced to the music of the Social Orchestra by proxy, so to say, and all because the seniors were "throwing', a party in the big gym below. Their wheezy phonograph was immediately abandoned, and the delighted guests finished the party to the melodious strains of the Matinee Orchestra. Early this semester Home Room 306 in a canvass of the class discovered that swimming was the favorite sport of that home room. , - Home Room 210 writes us saying: "Imagine if you can: Howard Overton looking disheveled at any time, place or occasion. Dorothy Kamjvas on the grand opera stage. ' Helena Lamzn yelling for North High at a basketball game. Agnes Burk failing to retort to any "slam." Home Room 317 won the ticket sale for the play, "A Kiss for Cinderella." The competition between 317 and 104 was very sharp. Both home rooms had over 475 per cent. Home Room 317, however. spurted toward the end of the contest and nosed 104 out of first place. Home Room 122 has won two first places in the School Courtesy Book Contest, but Home Room 119 has gone them one better by winning three. Home Room 4 presented a noon assembly, December 12. Appearing on this program were VVillis Barnes, master of ceremoniesg Ruth Lindberg, vocal soloistg Harlan Park, and Harry Breeding. Although Dale Batesole and Mer- ritt Hammans are not members of Home Room 4, they appeared on this pro- gram also. - At the P. T. A. meeting, October 15. Home Room 213 had an exhibit of six tables. The articles exhibited were skeletons, brains of human beings, a white rat, a toad, snakes, an ant colony, cockroaches and bed bugs fin casesj, all sorts of leaves, wax models of the human body. and cross sections of corn stalks and beans. Page Fifty-jvc X ks Qi fs The boys in Home Room 16, the printing room, received a letter of con- gratulation from Mr. joy E. Morgan, secretary of the National Educational Association, for theirwork on the posters, "The Home and the Virtuesf, which were submitted in the journal Nation-wide Printing Project. A Home Room 118 has been very busy these weeks. They put on a noon assembly program. During the Welfare Drive, they collected 33.14. Pretty good- for a .class of twenty. They also fixed up an attractive basket for the Children's Home. Now they have a large box where they put all their waste paper, so that they will have a good start when the Paper Drive begins. It is the only hom-e room not to get any fives. f Glimpses Back Stage f Beryl Carlan, 20, and Lucille Buck, 30, have planned and constructed a model puppet show as their outside project in Public Speaking. Miss Macy made the puppets for them, but they have done all the other work connected with such a project unassisted. K - Herbert Crermar, 104, editor-in-chief of the Quill, has one of the hardest jobs in the school, even though it is the most coveted. V 0 Did you know that Margaret Plummer, 104, sold 65 tickets for the school play, "A Kiss for Cinderella," and that Dick DeBakey, 317, carried off second prize by selling 38 tickets? Wilton Seymour, 203, has traveled more perhaps than any other student in East High. He has attended school for three month periods in the follow- ing cities: Clinton, Ames, and Cedar Rapids in Iowa, Pittsburg and Sedge- wick in Kansas, Lansing, Michigan, Richfield and Minneapolis in Minnesota, Galena, Missouri . In addition to these cities VVilton has lived, but not attended school, in the following cities: Dewitt, Iowa, Chicago, Illinois, and Mil- waukee, Wisconsin, ki Three ,students from North High are coming here to East every morning to take chemistry. They are Leo Pearlman, Ted Robinson, and Bill Bolton, who is a graduate from North. , .Five fellows from East High have been selected for the All-State Chorus. Those receiving this honor are: Lloyd Latham, 317 3 Gerald Latham, 2013 Harry Breeding, 4g Carl johnson, 201, and 'Warden Van Crundy, 16. The wardrobe committee is composed of Gertrude Libles, Margaret Bar- ron, Ingeborg Hegna, Agnes Sellers, and Ardis Roberts, with Miss jordan, faculty adviser. ' The properties committee for the play, "A Kiss for Cinderella," was made up of the following people: Harold Shover, Richard McGahan, Kathryn Anderson and Ardis Roberts. ' The costume committee for the late school play was composed of Louise Loizeauz, Ruth Rouss, Margaret Willey, Marian Guth, Dorothy Hextell and Helen Ellis. I Page Fifty-six DUI? SDDIQTLIIEH i East High Captures City Grid Title Climaxing an eventful and hard fought season, the Red and Black of East High completely routed the Polar Bears ot North High in their annual battle at the Drake bowl. Friday evening, November 15th, and won by the top-heavy score of 25-0. This victory gave the Lee Township lads an undisputed claim for the city title. Out of the eight games which were played this season East won tive, lost two and one ended in a tie. East Vlfaterloo, Marshalltown, Lincoln, Roosevelt and North were the victims of the five victoriesg Oskaloosa and Cedar Rapids were the conquerors, and Iowa City and East played to a 14-14 tie. Swimmers Paddle Hard in Preparation XVorking daily under the supervision of "Scotty" Russell, our big, brawny, swimming coach, a large swimming class has been trying to prove their ability as tankmen. Five lettermen will be available for use and many good prospects are trying to make the team. The lettermen are Hale Brown, Henry Jerome, Ed Killin, Homer Niehouse and Russell johnson. The other members of the team will probably be the following: Judd Crawford, Clif- ford Morgan, Alex Baridon, Tom Christman, Frank Manny, Dan Ellis, Duff Larson, Frank Carter, Harold VVilson, john Saroka, jack Bronson, Paul Anderson and Pat Kelsey. Red and Black Harriers Win Honors Although they were entered in only two meets, the East High cross country runners demonstrated their prowess by winning one meet and by placing men second and third in the other. In competing with Perry on the latter's course they won easily. On November Sth the team journeyed to Iowa City for the annual interscholastic Cross Country meet. George Holmes placed second, and Miles VX'ilson won third among the best prep-runners in the midwest. lf one of the other two East High men had placed among the Hrst ten, East would have won the meet. . . This was the last race that Miles VVilson, veteran track man, will run for East as he is graduating this semester. 'Perhaps his name, Miles, had something to do with his ability to run long distances. For three years he has ranked in state high school runners, and it will be a problem to find someone to till his shoes. George Holmes, his teammate, who is already a veteran, has another semester in which he can represent the Red and Black. Anyone who has seen him in action needs no explanation ot his ability. Page Fifty-seven Q er fb l East Faces Fast Competition in Cage Schedule 'Placing basketball on a par with other sports, East High athletic direc- tors this year have compiled a schedule that promises to be one of the hardest in the state. There will be seven games on the East High Hoor and seven away from home. As basketball is being recognized more and more in the Des Moines high schools, the student body should take a much greater interest in this fast sport. The completed schedule appears below.

Netmen Receive Monograms As a receiver of a tennis monogram at East must play both in the spring and fall seasons, only two boys were given their letters this semester: Alfred Mohler and Freeman Frost. Alfred has another year left for competition, but Freeman's tragic death has left Coach Duke Williams with only one letterman available for next spring. A East High placed third in the city tennis meet this fall. North high was first, Roosevelt second, and Lincoln High fourth. Red and Black Athletes Honored Placing five men on the all-city team, two on the all-city second team, one on the all-state first team, and one on the all-state second team, the foot- ball squad was well represented on the teams selected by the newspapers. Rhems, Gill, Heggen, Tillman and Rook were on the all-city first squad with Rhems being chosen as captain. Falls and jones were on the second squad, and several won honorable mention. On the all-state hrst team Rhems was placed at end, the position he played before he was changed to the backlield. His hard tackling, blocking, and line smashing made him one of the outstanding performers in the state. On the second team Gill captured one of the wing positions on account of his excellent kicking, receiving of passes, and defensive work. Rook, a guard. received honorable mention. Grid Players Receive Letters Earning football monograms is hard work, if you ask fourteen happy East High boys. They should know, because they are the proud possessors of the fourteen monograms awarded for the l929 season at an athletic as- sembly held VVednesday, November 20. The players receiving the mono- grams are as follows: Harry Rhems, three ringsg Nile Cannon, Bob Falls, William Gill, Dick Heggen, Art Tillman and Sam Turkftwo ringsg Lawrence Smith. Bob Rook, Versil Deskin, john Hartung, Harry Hayes, Virgil Hoos and VValter Jones, one-ring monograms. Although only fourteen players received awards, this by no means repre- sents the amount of work done by the substitutes and the second squad: Page Fifty'-t'1'gl1ti ' e I X gigs GIIQLS' ATHLETICS G. A. L. Gave Exhibition for State Teachers During the State Teachers' Convention on Friday, November Sth, nine- teen girls from the G. A. L. represented East lligh in the play day exercises at lVest High. These exercises, which were sponsored by the Ames teachers, fwere given for the benefit of all the physical education instructors in the state. The girls were divided into two groups, the red and yellow. The members of one team challenged members of the other team for stunts or games of skill, and were given a ribbon if victorious. The reds won the most number of points-a victory which pleased East High. for that team was made up almost entirely of the East High girls. Those who represented the Senior League were: Ingeborg lIegna, Vivian Bolish, Hazel Vincent, Opal German. Edna Iickrosh. Grace Hegna. 'Faye VVilliams. jacquelyn XVeb- ster, Lenora Rihard. Those from the junior League were: Estella Ma- honey, Vivian Patterson, Mary Vincent, Audry Brown, Merle VVildey, Mary Terrel, Helen Guliclc, liiyrl Burk, Pearl Soper, Lenore XVonderland. The Tennis Tournament Regardless of the rainy season which somewhat dampened the spirits of the fall tennis players as well as the courts. the girls' tennis team made a rather creditable showing in the city tournament the latter part of Novem- ber. Roosevelt High, however, was declared the winner of the city tennis championship. The girls' team representing East was comprised of Mildred Dixon, Mary Lou Martin, Elizabeth Erskine. and Lois VViley. Try It, Girls, It's Easy lf a girl is at all interested in sports of any kind, she will find no dith- culty in earning an award in athletics. There are ten different organized sports in which any girl may participate in order to earn points toward a numeral or a monogram. These sports are: swimming, basketball, hiking, volley ball. skating, horseback riding, baseball, golf, tennis and tumbling. The sports are organized so that the points earned in each group can be easily counted. To further expedite the counting of the points a captain of health charts has also been chosen. Thus. you see, the winning of a numeral or monogram is not so difficult after all, a spirited and active interest in athletics is about the only requirement. G. A. L. Creed The junior and Senior G. A. L. clubs have adopted a creed which they follow in their club work. This creed is: "As a member of the Girls' Athletic Association, I will play fair and square. I will be dependable to my friends and to my school. I will respect my teachers, my parents, and all older per- sons, and I will reverence God. I will endeavor to find the best things of life and to pass them on for others' joy. I will keep myself strong physically, mentally, morally, and shall at all times live up to this code of the Girls' Ath- letic League."

His play, "Man's Estate," was presented last spring at the Biltmore Theater in New York. Now he has again come into the limelight because of his new aviation book, "Sky Larking." In the "Midland," Frank Luther Mott says this of "Sky Larking:" "Mr. Gould writes of t11e pleasures of flying, of his contacts with aviation, of some of the great aeronautic incidents of recent times, and of the future of flying. The book has facts enough to please the reader who craves informa- tion, and has enough feeling and good writing to please those who are not so utilitarfan. A good book for the train, camp, or easy chair." Miss Ramsey Had Leading Role Anna Ramsey, '26, was chosen as a leading character in the annual dra- matic production of the junior class of Mount Morris College, Mount Morris, Illinois.

The SENTINEL was guarding the door, but when I told him who I was, he admitted me. "As I looked at the stage, a wonderful color scheme of CHERRY AND XYHITE struck the RETLNA of my eye. The comedy was especially entertain- ing, as a GREEN XYITCII played an important part. Queer, isn't it, that the witch was green? But it was a good contrast to another character who was dressed in RED AND GRAY. "I almost forgot to mention the reporter, Mr. l,iU'l'Ol,l'llIAN, from the CRYPTIAN, a widely known magazine in England, who was trying to keep a RECORD of the play. Strange to say though, it looked more like a ll,xr.,xNe1-1 SHEET than what it was intended to he. I also saw my old namesake, Mr. QUILL from Milwaukee, among the crowd.

Page Si.r!3' fin' Traditions of Our Fellow Schools Since we are engaged in tracing back East I-Iigh's traditions and customs for our citizenship booklet, we should be 'interested to note the traditions and enterprises of other Des Moines high schools. ' We learn from Lincoln High that they sponsor an International Day in which the seniors, dressed up for the occasion, are theparticipants. The pro- gram usually consists of an assembly having for its theme "Internationalism,', and ,gt little luncheon, with a social hour following. Lincoln High seniors also follow the practice of presenting to the senior B class each semester a large gilded "Key" called the "Key to the world." Roosevelt Day is a celebrated occasion at Roosevelt High. Each year the students and faculty pay homage to Theodore Roosevelt in the form of a home room enterprise or school assembly. The old tradition of the senior A class presenting to the senior B class a "big stick,'i the emblem of Roosevelt, is always practiced faithfully. North High has introduced a unique enterprise known as Color Day. All North High students and faculty were requested to wear the school colors on Friday, November 15. The belief of the participants was that the predom- inance of pink and green in the dress of the students would stir up pep for games and would also increase the feeling of unity among them. It is not known whether this experiment will become a tradition or not, although there is a possibility that it may because of the interest shown.

Qne would never think that such a good-looking group of individuals would shrink so at having their pleasing countenances perpetuated on deathless film, but it is so very difficult to get them before the merciless eye of the camera that it is almost necessary to lasso them. It seems that most of the articles l've seen, written by the students, are on the following topics: QU Flivvers. QZD Chewing Wrigley"s. t3j Assembly Conduct. A lJon't tell me that this is typical of East High students. lt wouldn't be at all my conception of school days to hop out of the old flivver into the assembly room with a jaw-full of gum.

To the Senior This is the prelude that now marks its close, VVhose deep, rich tones have sung of certainty, And made of knowledge its clear melody, It is a promise that its song bestows, Of aspirations worthy of acclaim, Of honor gained without its false conceit, And willingness to bear the grim defeat, It tells of countless deeds that bear no name. I Yours is the prelude whose last strains are played, Yours is the song that follows in its wakeg Slowly and quietly now the prelude fades, Yet I can hear it still reverberate. Yours is the rest,-the prelude now may cease, But in the song there lies your masterpiece. ,,.. .... . ,U , H:-1-.. - as Q -P MARGARET PECK. Page Thirty-five DN SHDIQE LEAVE Hodge Podge Ah, sweet mystery of life! We have always heard of the queer in- gredients that make up the varied senior dishg therefore, let us analyze their hodge podge. We discover that soon the Senior Class of '30 will be divided on the question as to which candidate for the Presidency of the United States shall be elected. The principal cause of this controversy will be the aspi- rants, Ardis Roberts and Dale Bowen. Ardis may be aided by her hobby, whieh is talking and arguing, but this will perhaps be balanced by the support Dale will receive from his fair friends. Boys, beware! Annie McPherson wants to be a heartbreaker. This fu- ture men-menacer says that the most irritating remark is having to listen to Harlan Park remark, "And you didnft even tell your rnother!l' But that isn't as bad, so Evelyn Teander thinks, as "Oh Yeah ?" Paul Anderson wants to grow tall --a lofty ambition, eh? His hobby, so he says, is experimenting with automobiles. We wonder if he means tinkering with his Ford. Are you aware that we have in our midst an embryo Sherlock Holmes? Carol Bruce has had so much prac- tical experience in shadowing the ever elusive hairpins that she is sure that she can even rival William Powell. Page TIn'r!y-six Bob Dennis wants to be a radio announcer. Someday we may have the thrill of hearing him tell the eve- ning bed-time stories through the "mike" Wfe just know that his voice will cause the wires to throb. Marvin Graybeal goes in for col- lecting. In school he collected a string of heartsg now he wants to collect a string of theatres. Perhaps it is the attraction of op- posites that makes Ruth Sheppard wish to be a giant. Although everyone seems to think Margaret Barron and Ruth Rouss are so different, their answers to the questionnaire were very similar. Margaret wishes to be on the foot- ball team, while Ruth craves to gar- ner laurels as a track star. Odd as it may seem, there is something dis- tasteful to Ruth about hearing cloth rip, while Margaretis pet aversion is squeaking chalk and "stuck-up" people. Did you know that East High is to be represented in Hollywood by none other than the blond-headed Katherine Beckman, who hates shiny noses? Still we hope that her career will make her shine as a "stan" S. O. S.! Leland Cornwall has a secret aim to overcome his bashful- ness. We would strongly advise a course on "How to Obtain a Force- ful Personalityf' given by Cliff Powers in three easy lessons. 2 Another would-be ball player is Harlan Park. He should be an in- valuable asset to any ball team, for, because of his unusual length, he could reach first base in three steps. Here's a hint, boys. Gather up a fortune because Dorothy Hansen is looking for a millionaire. Hitch your wagon to a star, Dorothy, and you'll get a Rockefeller or a Morgan-J. Pierpont, not Edris. Evidently Le- nore 'Wonderlin hopes to find the pot of gold, for her ambition is to give Mr. Gabrielson a Cadillac. Louise Loizeaux objects to naggers and wants a successful career and happy marriage. Well, it pays to ad- vertise. . Y.. EAA f 31, To be good-looking is Lowell Dun- lavy's aim in life, and we would like to suggest that if he doesnit at first succeed, try, try again. Perhaps it is because his thoughts soar so high that Dick McGahan wants to be a human fly. At any rate it would be a very good way to live up to one's lofty ideals. Perhaps "Let,s be Domestic" would be a good theme song for Blanche Waterman and Harold An- derson, if we may judge from their questionnaires. Blanche's pet aver- sion is high sopranos. In this article we have hoped to compile a helpful and interesting bit ofstatistics. We sincerely hope we haven't given away any secrets. , Senior Idiosyncrasies True it is that seniors may show a surprising lack of knowledge on world topics. In fact, some of them even think that Will Rogers was our representative at the Naval Parley in London, but on topics of such world- wide interest as long hair, long skirts, loud ties, and double dates the seniors speak with vociferous authority. Axel Carlson: "The return to long skirts and long hair does not neces- sarily mean a lengthened life, but we boys like them. As for double dates, they are the thing without a doubt- less expense plus equal enjoyment." Albert Ames: "Double dates are always a huge success with the elon- gated l930 girl." Jennings Crawford: "Long hair only increases my fear of women. Double dates are impossible without the fairer sexg therefore, I can never answer your question." Helen Bayer or Irene Bayer CNote we don't know which we inter- viewed? : "Loud ties are worn by boys, thus I dislike them. I can throw no light on the subject of double dates," Kathryn Anderson: "I am in favor of loud ties and will do my best to push the issue, but double dates are terrible in a Ford coupe." Lola Leifheit: "Warden wears loud tiesg therefore, it is my duty to my Warden to love them. We're for single dates and many of them." Virginia Green: "I'm for bigger and louder ties. No, I know nothing of dates in any form. Let someone with experience speak for me.', Blanche VVaterman: "Loud ties are perfect on football players. VVe want our dates alone." Margaret Plummer: "Jack must wear louder ties if he expects to hold my affections. We always like double dates, and know nothing of the other kind." , Carol Bruce: "I am an ardent ad- mirer of loud tiesg in fact, I admire my home room teacher's taste." Donald R. Boudinot: "It is my opinion that the 1930 girl with her long dress and long hair is simply putrid. One should realize double dates are impossible on a bicycle."

"Uncharted seas luring venture- some youth-hidden treasure flinging a challenge to the dauntless-mates to 'stand by' as with anchors aweigh --unfurl sails.-This is your voyage, Class of 19307 It is the day of Commencement. The seniors are pushing away from the Island of School into the Sea of Life in search of Pleasure Island. Loath to part with loved ones, many are staging a "sob scene." Blanche Watermaii can be seen bidding a tearful goodbye to a stalwart foot- ball-track star. Nearby, Bruce Farmer is making dutiful promises to a vivacious blonde, while Laurence Smith is whispering consoling en- dearances into the ear of the blonde's best friend. "Bye, Ruth, be good,'i are his parting words. On the dock Johnny V iggers is giving his long- haired sweetheart a fond farewell as Paul Gifford rushes from his "Dot," his eyes blinded by tears. Petite Elsie Stevens is telling Garnet goodbye a bit sadly. Wilbur I-Iamborg and Vir- ginia Green are almost left behind, but they run up the gang plank just as it is being drawn up. Laurence "Popeye" Smith heads the merry band, with Jennings "Jaw- bonei' Crawford at the wheel. As the ship pushes off, a medley of voices reaches them from below on star- board side. "Ship Ahoy !" "Who's there P" "It's us!" CShades of Senior Eng- lishlj "Lower the ladder!" "Help ! Help !" The merry seniors group around the rail to catch a glimpse of the row- boat below. Lo and behold! jack Brownson is fighting with Harlan Park for the hand of "Mug" Plum- mer. In the boat are some others-1 the left-behinds. At commands from "Popeye" the crowd is hauled up, boat and all, "Chicken" Holmes, James Taft, Dor- othy Hansen, and many others, jam- med in among the trunks and boxes. The good ship is at last off, headed for Pleasure Island. :k vp fs: X af :K Interval of three hours. :k as wk at vs :il "VVherc's Corliss Dysinger? Has any one seen him?H This from a frantic miss. "Kill-em-alll' Turk bursts in among them, "There he is!

A woman's voice rings out! It is only .lune Henderson practicing for her stage debut. As we all know, the aim of her life is to sing on Pleasure Island. Then suddenly a through the ship. All is confusion! in complete tremor runs George Podrebarac armor breaks through the crowd to show his valor. "XVhere are they? Iill take'em all !" Over the side comes a row of leering faces. "ElEI3IEIiEKKKKKK! Help! Help!" and half the girls have fled. Podrebarac, after jumping ten feet in the air, scurries for cover. Only a few are brave enough to face the tyrants, whom they recognize as bloodthirsty J OBS come to carry away a few of the crowd. In this group are salesmen, bank officials, jockeys, and ditch diggers. They seize their victims and are gone be- fore anyone can prevent them. Throughout the day "Lady-Killer" Latham has persisted in singing love songs to Mildred E., languidly re- clining in a hammock. But the most Page Thirty-nine Q amusing scene on the whole ship is "Love-sickl' Dunlavy trying to recite romantic poems to Anne Martin. Her sweet love-lit face thrills even the on- looker. On sails the ship, the cruisers' merry laughter breaking out at the slightest provocation, even silly jokes amusing them for hours at a time. Only the few seized by J O B S are missing. Then one day early in Septem- ber the boat docks at a lovely island which the merry group thinks is their goal--the real Pleasure Island. So sure are they that this is the object of their search that they even decide to build a town on the shore. Each decides upon his own vocation, the one most suited to his talent. Rich- ard McGahan with the help of his wife, the former Virginia VVest, edits the "Slooptown News." Lloyd Reise begins a thriving trade as a photo- grapher, all the natives crowding around him curious to see what his little black box can accomplish with such strange looking "foreigners" The huge gymnasium on the corner is supervised by Lois Wiley and Nile Canon, with Tom Thompson as offi- cial starter at the track meets, and Hale Brown as swimming instructor. Hazel World and Bernice Aamoth are operating a night club in Sloop- town's Broadway district, with Beva Leming as chief hostess and Vlfarden Van Gundy as leading soloist, ac- companied by Kate Nicolle at the piano. Nellie Oppenheim has a dance studio in the Hollywood section of the village. CIt is rumored that she is engaged to Clifford Powers, star of the talking picture "Hels Got a New Girl," a W'ilson and VVilson production. Q The town prospers, but prosperity does not always bring with it satis- faction. To some the island does not seem one of pleasure. These restless people, always wanting something different, are anxious to get O11 the Page Forty x W4 ' 5 boat and push on to new lands. The great Irishman, Patrick Kelsey, is chosen as new pilot, "Popeye" long ago having rented a home for two on 'the main street of Slooptown. Lola Leifheit, slowly pining away for the dream-of-her-heart left behind "solo- ing" in the Aamoth World Cabaret in the village, is given a body-guard CEd Killinj and sent back to Sloop- town. On to France they sail. As the ten million Frenchmen approach the ship, a voice startles them by shouting, "Look at Felix Williams." There he is, sitting on the prow of the ship composing fervid love poems to Lady Britannia as she stares un- seeingly into the sea. Josephine Ris- burg goes ashore with Orville Lewis, the interpreter, to find out' about the directions to Pleasure Island. Edris Morgan and Dorothy Porter also de- cide to go on shore, where they plan to start a Parisian branch of the Mor- gan-Markussen Clothing establish- ment. VVhen one of the French movie directors asks who is the leading actress on board, Margaret Peterson and Katherine Beckman both claim the honor, Margaret declaring Cin- derella better than the mountain girl, for she got her princeg Kate assert- ing the superiority of the mountain girl, superior since she knew how to weep so beautifully. France is soon left behind, and now a new danger presents itself. COLLEGE appears and captures a few, and a little later its great ally, BUSINESS COLLEGE, claims its victims. Most of the company still remain to float aimlessly over the Sea of Life in search of the elusive Island of Pleasure. One morning, months later, Sam Ginsberg declares his in- tention of landing so that he can start an automobile tire corporation. Only Bernice Lassiter, Paul Gifford, and Gilbert Bolton will buy stock in his company. At the island of COM- ZW ERC E the boat is docked, and they put ashore. At the last minute the Bayer sisters decide to go with them so that they can build up the aspirin business left them by a relative. After this, Henry Jerome gets so lonesome so far away from school that with Phil Jester he starts to swim back to East High. One after- noon there is a terrific noise below in the cabin section. The captain runs down and there stands Madolyn Moore pounding on a dish pan with a mallet. "VVhat do you think you're doing, calling an army ?', She calmly replies, "I am only try- ing to get Russell Elings up in time for supper." "What time did he go to bed, any- how Pi' "Day before yesterday." Time Interval. :if Pk we as vs Pk alt is a pity that so many of the pleasures had to be halted at thebe- ginning of their trip by JOBS." This was voiced by Harold Thayer. "Yes, it is too bad, but it seems that even we aren't getting any nearer Pleasure than they were," says Mar- vin Graybeal. VVhen they reach the next Island, every one is secretly hoping that his journey's end may be there. Some, discouraged and too listless to look farther, give up their search and de- cide to remain. When the ship sails on, only a few of the seniors remain. These few have escaped JOBS and COLLEGES and whatever else has taken their fellow student away. They are still wandering to and fro on the open sea, no goal set, nor none arrived at as yet-still pleasure bent, however. Not yet have they come to the realization that most of the happi- ness they would achieve should come through work. For many long weary months the ship has drifted. One evening, as the sun was casting its last beam over the waves, Charles Mitchell voices his ennui. "You knowf' he said, "it seems odd that as long as we have been traveling that we should not be able to find Pleasure Island." "Yeah! I ain't had a bit of fun all the time we have been on board. All youse guys do is crab. This sure is a rotten environment for a man like me," growls Art Krasinski. "Aw, pipe down. You ain't so hot, you just think you are," speaks up Carroll MacGregor vehemently. "Say, who gave you permissionto speak?" This from Paul Anderson, who is manning the wheel. - "Hey, look out!" is the general cry. But it is too late, the boat has plunged directly on a huge pileuof rocks. J The ever calm Louise Loizeaux only murmurs, "How depressing." Crash! There are flying timbers, and the boat has crumbled. No lives are lost, and fortunately Louise Piper and Vera Shutt have saved a few biscuits and some hard, dry meat. They discover that the boat has hit on an island. For an hour all are occupied with exploring. Then Evelyn Miller comes to a sign which reads: "'To Pleasure Island-turn around three times, close your eyes, and follow your nose' ' Marion Guth Wants to try it first. Following directions, she walks for- ward far enough to fall over a roll of paper. Excitedly she unfolds it and reads its cryptic message. "To Pleas- ure Seekers: Pleasure is never found by loafing. Get busy, and if you have not found pleasure within six weeks -go on looking for it." Signed, Class of 1929. Then realization of the real signifi- cance of the search for Happiness comes to them. Upon them is at last borne the truth: JOBS are not their enemies, COLLEGE isnlt a tyrantg XVORK, in their own especial talent or in their chosen field, is not work after all-that such are only short- cuts to PLEASURE ISLAND.

IT is quite evident that some excuses are too goodg they show too much thought. EVERY lady is easily distinguished nowadays, for she invariably has calloused hands from holding the street car straps. CAPTAIN Kidd says: "Politics make strange hedfellows, but they soon get used to the same 'bunk'." EVERY one knows that some people pick lemons in the Garden of Love. SINCE the Government has levied the income tax and the amusement tax, Miss Gabriel has given us syntax. GNE consolation we have when we look over the Senior pictures-they'rc not talkies. EDUCATION is something many of us know we have attained, and yet the fact that we know it proves that we haven't it. IT doesn't take a room full of students for some teachers to have class. GOOD stenographers and artful students have at least one thing in com- mon: they both get their money by the touch system. I IAVE you ever noticed that whenever anyone is generous to a fault it is usually his own? T-! Tsk! Tsk!! Tsk!!! Page Forty-six T I2 EASU D T DU If 66Tom, Dick and Harryv I like nicknames because they seem to break down formal barriers and create such friendliness among peo- ple. Even if they often are begun in teasing, I am always interested in learning the origin of such names. You'll agree with me when I say Puss is a queer nickname. My aunt was trying hard not to be vexed by two older brothers, but try as she might, father teased her so much that she lost her temper. She immediately fell to fighting, kicking, and scratch- ing until Dad began to call her a cat, "Pussy, Pussy." From that time on, "Puss" was resorted to as a taunt to remind her of her ungovernable tem- per. Once when my uncle complained because he had been asked to help his mother, and consequently he was be- ing as slow as he could, my grand- father called to him, "Hurry up, Mosef' Immediately his older brothers Cmy Dad, no doubt, the ringleaderj were convulsed with laughter, and from then on they called him Mose. My Dad was directly or indirectly involved in the giving of such names as Tad, Huddy Mae, Bee, Nook, Nick, and innumerable others. If you see how unmerciful he was in giving nicknames, perhaps you'll excuse me for calling my sister "Duke.,' Many of my relatives call my little sister "Punk," but I, as I have said, call her "Duke" Both, no doubt, sound queer to ears unfamiliar to such seemingly senseless appellations. XVhen she was about six years old, she had her picture taken, and the picture showed starry eyes, a fat chubby round face, and a Cheshire cat grin. NVhat more could be expected from loving sisters than a name "Pumkin'," shortened to "Punk"? One summer evening my sister speed- ily gobbled her supper, not an ele- gant expression to be sure, but strik- ingly to the pointj, and with surpris- ing alacrity ran outdoors to play and left me with the dishes to do. "Call me when they're ready to dry l" And away she went to play ball. It takes a healthy pair of lungs to outshout ten or fifteen hilarious youngsters, but it was either exert all my lung power or do the dishes alone, and I was determined not to do my sister's work for her. fI,m not lazyg I just don't like to work.j It was physically impossible for me to make myself heard. "Punk,,' I mused, "that name doesnlt carry wellf' "Punky Dunky" -and like a line of poetry which will fall unconsciously from the lips Qreally though I'm not trying to con- vince you that this is poetryj, came "Punky, Dunky, Dukey, Dore." From that I went to "Duke" My sister with much spirit retorted, "VVell, I'l1 call you 'Lord Bishop'." For some reason my name did not stick, but to this day she's "Duke" to me. RUTH SHEPPARD, '30. Page Fo rty-seven es X isis 3 l Where, Oh, Where Have They Gone? Where, oh where, have the chival- ric knights disappeared? Vlfhere, oh! where have all the gallant gentlemen gone? No more do they roam this fair land, brightening the hearts of gentle lady-folk with their gracious smiles and graceful bows. No more do they chant sweet, tender melodies in the soft twilight of the evening dusk. No more can they be found in a fragrant garden, sipping a cup o' tea with a group of alluring maidens, quaintly demure with their beruffied Hounced silken frocks, pale blue taf- feta sashes, and gay old fashioned bouquets. They are not there, nor are they in the beautiful orchard, sit- ting under the apple tree with their demure lady loves. Alas! these ad- mirable creatures with their flowery flourishes and sentimental smiles have entirely disappeared. P All that is left of noble manhood is the modern youth-bold and brazen -rude and rough. All the considera- tion this modern escort gives his lady is an impatient tug at the elbow, a hasty shove across the busy street, a hurried grab off a street car, and a fast drag down an aisle! Maybe it was easier for Grand- father to be a true gentleman to a blushing, modest, little lady in rose organdie and poke bonnet than for a modern boy to treat with dignity a Hippant liapper with knee-length skirt. Yet let's not forget that old- fashioned womanliness in costume is slowly coming back in style. Will fashion help chivalry stage a "come- back PV Who knows? . FRANCES PARSONS., '32.

"Let's see, now, the principals of the case are Miss Dot Johnston and Mr. Al Winfield.

The other, Mr. Al Winfield-" "Is a MARvelous dancer, a GOOD looking dark fellow of nineteen years with a PROMising future. FAScin- atingand fun-loving, BOYish. A per- fect diamond-" raved Peggy. "Well, he must have a Haw, or Dot wouldn't have refused himf' deduced Joan in judicial manner. "Say-how'd you happen to know he proposed?', asked Peggy as the thought struck her. "VV ell, I was unfortunately hostess to her little imp of a brother, and he said she got a letter from Al and he proposed in itf' replied Joan. "Oh, I see. VVell, now that we have the principals catalogued, how about the situation previous to the mys- tery?" "VVell, Peg, as I see it-Al got the job as assistant track coach and fell in love with Dot, who was also on the downward swerve. He accom- panied her to the senior functions, and as the graduation days drew near he had to leave town for a brief stay. VVhile gone, he dropped her a lengthy missile in which he suggested that they live happily ever after. For some unknown reason, the happy thought irked our dear Dot and she said 'Nof Odd, I call it,i' finished Joan. "Now, my dear Watson, what is our next move ?,' "VVe go to the boudoir of the hero- ine and Hre the question mark point blank, and the startled maiden, who had had no time to prepare ammuni- tion, breaks down and confesses to the two stern Detectives."

Let us listen, for one can't be too squeamish about politeness when one is tracking down a mystery. "VV'e can't understand how he came to get an unfavorable answer. Did he by any chalice write on passionate purple paper, or why did it happen?" asked Peg. "Do tell us, Dot. We won't tell it," promised Joan. "Well, you see, I always like ob- serving men--" Dot began. Page Forty-nine W? "Didn't he notice your new dress F" asked Peg innocently. "Peggy Beam, WILL you keep still?

I Miss Macy and the Mexican Marauders "Are you going down to Mexico again this summer, Miss Macy?" I asked, recalling lurid headlines of our newspapers, "or was it too exciting for you ?" "Well, rather," she answered, "if you call being held up by bandits ex- citing." Scenting a good story, I pricked up my ears. It seems that last summer she traveled in the land of tortillas, taran- tulas, and torrid tomales. Using Mex- ico City as her base, each morning she drove to nearby locations and cactus courts where she sketched and Page Fifty painted the quaint, picturesque old cathedrals and missions made famous by Ramona. One day as she breathlessly sat in the back seat of a Mesquite dodger, which was swerving down a snake path, she saw with a palpitating pulse that the whole Mexican army, or so it seemed to her, was swooping clown upon them. "Quick!" said the driver. "Hide your valuablesli' "Why P" asked Miss Macy. "What will these soldiers do ?" "Soldiers, my eye!" ejaculated the driver, or words to that effect in the e - latest Mexican slang. "They're ban- dits. They have held up a garrison and have stolen the uniformsf, Quick thinking on the part of his passengers kept them from being too frightened to enjoy the adventure. Miss Macyls companion put her val- uables in her handkerchief and placed them under her hat, while Miss Macy tucked her ring, a keepsake, under one glossy braid and viewed the scene with a serene and secure smile. By this time the bandits had almost caught up with them. The driver, pretending his car was stalled with a balky sparkplug, appeared concerned with his refractory auto. "Start the car," they commanded. "Don't speak Mexican," replied the driver, untruthfully. "There's no use for delay. Start the car," commanded the swarthy- faced fellow with a menacing eye, holding the barrel of the blunderbuss at his forehead. "Don't speak Mexican," repeated X :ZS:3Tb, Q the driver doggedly. He was holding up bravely, but with beads of perspir- ation standing out on his brow. He was 1nore concerned than the Amer- icans over the situation, for he was more familiar than they with the bandits, happy little habit of shoot- ing men and thinking no more of it than of slapping a mosquito. Finally the fact that it was useless filtered. through their thick pates, and away they went in a cloud of dust and sand fleas, leaving behind three bundles of frayed nerves. NV hen the three motorists drove in- to the town a few minutes later, they found the inhabitants in excited fury, not only because their town had been sacked, but because their afternoon siesta had been interrupted. In spite of her thrilling adventure, Miss Macy is anticipating another trip to Mexico sometime, for she feels, like other work-a-day Amer- icans, that the romantic glamour of old Mexico is enticing to the traveler. MARGARET BARRON '30. The Wind's Song The wind sings a weird song, A repelling, mysterious tale, A story of a human's wrong Told in the sweeping gale. A human's suffering is in its moan, A voice of terror and of woe, Someone is weeping all alone, Haunted wherever they go. What horrid sights and stories The wind's song illustrates, What downfalls and what glories Its keenness penetrates. I would that I could understand What all that it does tell, But it islike the shifting sand Of an old forgotten well. And so it sings its weird song, Its repelling, mysterious tale, Its story of a human's wrong Told in the sweeping gale. t THELMA GILLESPIE i31. Page Fifty-one in nn... - Sammy Sam was happy-oh, he was ex- tremely happy. As he briskly walked down jackson avenue, he snapped his lingers, cut capers, and hummed snatches of songs familiar along 42nd Street. His low-crowned straw hat was tilted at a rakish angle, his wide- spaced teeth were in full view, and his chalky eyes rolled and snapped as though keeping time with his songs. Sam was a little colored boy, fresh from the hill country of Alabama, and his greatest ambition was to ac- quire a "no'th'n eddicationf' Loss of parents in a landslide had early dim- med his high hopes of going north for an education, and they were made darker still when his poverty forced him into Birminghamfs dreaded "river,' district, a portion occupied wholly by negroes and a district where knives and "smoke wagons" were not only carried by most of its nondescript inhabitants, but were considered absolutely necessary to one's longevity. Bitter experience had been his sole and very thorough teacher, and a willingness to work and initative his greatest assets. It was these latter traits that secured for him the coveted position of "shine boyn at the great Union sta- tion. It was also these same traits that drew down upon his wise little head the hatred of the lordly "red- caps" and porters, who were heard to remark bitterly, "Dat Sam is jist workin' hard so's he can beat one of us out'n a job." As a cruel revenge these fellows never missed a chance to twit poor Sam publicly on his pet ambition, a northern education. Gne old "red-cap," in particular, took ma- licious delight in calling in very loud tones, "Look at our little boot-black, him wont"s to go up no'th and get a real eddication. Whut's he ganna do atter he gets one? Be a street cleaner Page F ifty-two or ditch digger, I 'spect.', This sally was always followed by raucous howls of glee and winkings and nudgings among his fellows. But thoughts of a superior educa- tion so filled Sanfs mind that these jests were quickly forgotten, and he would soon be discussing his ambi- tions with great vehemence and elab- oration to one of his sympathetic pa- trons. "Yessuh, I wont's to know how to read and write and talk proper so 's ah can write books an' make po'try lak Mistuh Dunbar." Paul Lawrence Dunbar was Sam's god. To Sam he stood for all that was good in an education. One day as he was lost in one of his many pointless dreams of learning, a portly immaculaitely-dressed gentleman call- ed for a shine. After Sam had gone through the first stages of his famous "gloss" finish, he began in his likable spontaneous manner a discussion of that which was uppermost in his mind. Sam noted with a little start of pleasure that this man did not smile at his crude speech and unpol- ished manners as some of his cus-- tomers often did, and unwilling, so soon to lose this fine listener he pro- longed the shine as much as he dared. After the shoes had been polished and repolished until further polish- ing would have aroused suspicion, Sam reluctantly signified that he had concluded. The man, however, did not rise but sat staring at the boy with a strange interested look on his face. Presently he said, "What are you going to do after you get an educa- tion?,' Sam was plainly flustered. There were so many things he had in mind, oh there were just millions and mil- lions of things. After a time he said, "Mister, if ah had a good no'th'n ed- dication, ah would---well ah would- e A A l'd be a preacher and then I'd teach all of my congregation my eddica- tion." There was a long pause fraught with emotion-then, "NV ell, get your suit case. I am going to give you a northern education." This accounted for Sam's extreme , Qzixgsr fs display of happiness. But .Sam's cup of joy was filled to overflowing when the evil old "red-capf' who had made Sam's life miserable, was forced to carry his battered little suit case to the panting express and-education.

MARGARET PECK '31, The Passing of Two Liners at Sea I shall never forget the passing of two large ocean liners I saw at sea. lt was midnight on the Atlantic about 800 miles off the coast of England. A soft, balmy breeze blew the salt spray in our faces. Although the night air was fast turning colder, we stood on the aft deck in order not to miss the sight. VVe shivered from the cold spray, our teeth chattering to the time of a piece of lively square-dance music coming from a sailor's harmonica. Everyone was straining his eyes to the northward where a sudden light appeared, faint though it was, then vanished, and appeared again to re- main a mere glimmer on the horizon. Gradually it rose higher and came closer, a blinking light in the rolling North Atlantic. Everyone held his breath, for far out and carried on the chill night air came the thunder of a whistle in salute to her sister ship. Immediately our own boat roared forth its answer. The light gradually drew closer, and finally there loomed up out of the darkness the great bow of "Fred- erick the VIII." Bells were ringing, people shouting, and lights glaring on the water, both boats whistling, and the water madly churning in a pitch- black night. This scene lasted but a few seconds, and the light on her stern grew smaller and smaller. As I stood on the deck and watched it, it gave one final blink and was lost on the Southwest horizon. ALBERT PETERSON, '31, Page Fifty-three Q... ss s.. My First Stage Experience There are many things a stage career will do for one, because it has a tendency not only to broaden one's mind when he converses with people on various subjects pertaining to theatrical life, but also when he talks to professional people in other voca- tions. A person taking up stage work must learn lines, must use good gram- mar, must have a well trained mem- ory, and must cultivate a good speak- ing voice. This Work also fits a per- son for other careers by putting con-- Hdence in him through his ability to entertain and hold his audience. My first appearance on the stage, which was at the Strand Theatre at Newton, Iowa, helped me in many ways to acquire a few of these qual- ities. I will never forget that day as long as I live. There I was, booked as a professional actress, and I didn't even know what a theatrical dressing room was like, or where it was most likely to be found. I had rehearsed the act only twice, but, being egotisti- cal, and confident because I was working with a professional, I was not worried. We arrived at Newton at 12:30 p. m., found the theatre, and inquired what time the rehearsal would be. I made sure, as we talked to the manager and he assigned us to our dressing rooms, to stay behind, or a little to one side, of my partner so that I did not make any mistakes. An error would have been fatal, for the manager would not let me go on and my partner did not have his ven- triloquial Figure or any other thing with which he could go on alone. Our act required two people and any more or less would have made it a failure. After we had dressed and were waiting for our turn to go on, my partner in the front of the theatre and I alone in the wings, the man- ager proceeded to question me. All Page Fifty-four I would say in answer to his ques- tions was "Yes," "No," or "See my partner about it, he takes care of that." After a great deal of such questioning, he became discouraged and left me alone. Soon it was our turn. I can picture myself now, my knees wabbling, my throat dry, and with a terrible fear that I would get stage fright as I did some years be- fore at a musical recital. After a few tugs at my dress, I walked upon the stage. In my part I had much talk- ing to do as I had to give an intro- duction and explain that my partner had suddenly taken sick, and that he would be unable to appear at this per- formance, when in reality he was sit- ting in the audience, waiting for his cue. My voice sounded very loud at the start, but became fainter later on. It seemed to me that I would never get to my partner's cue, and I think he must have thought so too. I al- most laughed when he appeared upon the stage after our cross-fire comedy talk, which took place with him in the audience, for he had large beads of perspiration standing on his fore- head, because he was afraid I would break down. During our act, which consisted of comedy magic, the responsibility rested on me as I had to do the tricks of magic legitimately. Immediately afterward my partner would do the trick, then expose it, and add a touch of comedy to it. Our first one was that of producing an' egg from a handkerchief. The handkerchief is shown on both sides and immediately upon my folding the ends together, an egg is made to appear, which is very mystifying until the comedian attempts to do the trick and bungles it, thus exposing it to the people for a hearty laugh. Following this is the candle trick, one that is very amus- ing as well as mystifying. A candle Q is made to disappear and reappear under a can at the magician's com- mand, and again the trick is exposed for another hearty laugh. Somehow or other I managed to get through the first performance without forgetting any lines. After our first performance and while wait- ing for the second, my partner told me that the next time we went on I would not do so well. At that time I x f X", ...., , thought he was teasing me, as I had gone through the first so well. But as usual he was right. I did forget some unimportant lines, but by his quick thinking we did not attract attention to my mistake. The third and last performance of the day went smoothly. That was my first expe- rience upon the stage, but it was not my last.

ESTHER OSNESS '3l. Heroes: Ancient and Modern The hero of the "Arabian Knightsv rescued fair princesses, killed drag- ons, overcame evil spirits, and trav- eled' around on magic carpets. On his magic rug he visited the princess of a large city and fell in love with her. Often he lost his carpet and went wandering around the country, hunting for his princess and the lost city. Such is the way it goes with a hero. The hero of the "Arabian Knights" was dressed in costly silks and lived in luxury. So loved and reverenced was he by the Arab fathers that he was used as an ex- ample for their children. The modern hero, while he does not rescue princesses, performs the equally heroic task of rescuing pals from the clutch of the Arctic wastesg he kills microbes, man's'great enemy, he overcomes evil influencesg and he travels about in a man-made bird of the sky-the airplane. What greater example can be given than our own Lindbergh? Unlike the hero of olden days, he cares little for costly silks and luxury. Shy though he is, always avoiding publicity and showy speeches, yet he has all the heroic qualities-initiative, manliness, and courage--that characterize the real hero. Like the Arabian Knight, he, too, is held up as an example to the youth of the day. KENNETH HOLLENQUIST, '32. Page Fifty-five e R W A Rss Books for Vacation Reading CCLabels99 66 99 A.

Page Fifty-seven As It Might Hdve Been in 1194 Good afternoon, ladies and gentle- men of the radio world. You are now listening to station XYZ, broadcast- ing from Torquilstone Castle and giving you a battlefront account of the siege of the castle by men and allies of Cedric's household and the forest outlaws. The besiegers are all lined up in the adjoining forest around the outside of the castle, all set for the word from the leader. During the pause here, while we wait for the opening charge, I'll tell you something of the castle itself. It covers, I should say, two hundred acres, and around the outside is a moat about thirty feet wide. In the center I can see a little stone house, which I have been told is called the barbican. We're all ready to begin now. There goes the Saxon blast, which is promptly answered by a Norman from the wall of the castle. As far as I can tell, a knight in sable armor is leading the besiegers and now heads for the castle. Front de Boeuf leads the defenders. Anyone can tell him by his gigantic form.. Say, what? I mean those archers are some shooters, and a stream of arrows comes flying out of the green so thick you can hardly see. Boy, I'm glad I'm not down there! As you perhaps know, I'm in a Ford airplane with a sound-proof cabin, the greatest Ford achievement in years, so don't listen for the motors. Now the two leaders go for a single combat, and everyone else fol- lows suit. Here they come. The Black Knight swings again with an axe given him by one of his follow- ers! Vtfhat a swing he does give that axe! No one could stand before that, and Front de Boeuf goes down like snow before the sun! Now they're Page Fifty-sight headed for the postern. They're go- ing to make a raft and go across the moat. Wihile the raft is being built, I will again say that you are listening to station XYZ, broadcasting the storm- ing of the Castle of Torquilstone. VVell, they are across now, but I hardly think it will do them any good because the men on top of the wall are endeavoring to loosen a large stone and topple it over on them. There goes one knight after another down from the wall. There's one they canlt hurt! Again there is a lull, and at this time I might tell you of the terrible story of Ulricais captivity within the castle walls all these long years, but just now I must inform you of the radio message from below, which an- nounces Athelstaneis promise to give a banquet at Coningsburgh Castle if his side is victorious. Knowing Athelstane's love for pasties and other delicacies, you can guess what an elaborate dinner he will serve. Now there is something hanging there on the wall of the castle. I can't quite make it out from here, but it looks like a red flag, and if my eyes aren't deceiving me, the castle is on tire. Well, it's all up now. Either the besiegers will give up the castle or will stay and burn, and I rather think they're coming out. Yes, there they come now, and the besiegers rush in to save the inhabitants and prisoners. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'll see you at the wedding of Ivanhoe and Rowena next Saturday through this same network of stations. Your an- nouncer was Naham Gracknamee. Good day, all.

The few who still per- sist in believing that work is real play are Mr. Burton, who will be in charge of East High summer school, and Mr. Lyman, Mr. Bingham, and Mr. Stephens, who will continue to teach here just as if there is no such word as vacation. Most of the others, how- ever, will come back next September with tales of happy vacation days spent in the mountains, near the sea- shore, in the north woods, or in the romantic countries of Europe.

Page Sixty German Students Hold Reception German students at East held a German coffee Friday, March 28, in honor of the students whose birth- days are in March. The honored guests were Marie Griglione, Lucille Demsky, and Mildred Troeger. The tables were covered with em- broidered cloths brought from Ger- many by Miss Sarah VVickware. Coffee, chocolate, and coffee cakes were the refreshments served. The flowers decorating the tables were presented to the guests of honor. Old Truths Retold On Anniversary Day, May 16, the students of East High School were presented with copies of "Old Truths Retold," the gay colored booklet bear- ing an attractive pattern of the oak trees that stand before the building. Because it was through their own efforts that the booklet was written, it was appropriate that the presenta- tion should be made at this time so that the student body might rededi- cate themselves with even deeper sin- cerity to the fulfillment of those ideals for which the school stands. After the foreword which explains the purpose of the booklet and gives the names of those whose coopera- tion made it possible, the book con- tains the Ten Commandments of As- sembly conduct, Proverbs Helpful to Classroom and Corridor Courtesy, Ten Virtues of Conversation, the School Party, Banquet Etiquette, and a lengthy article on the History and Traditions of East High School. Another outstanding feature is the summary of the statistics gathered by the score cards which were circulated among the students in order to ascer- tain the information of how our boys and girls rank in honesty, thought- fulness, sportsmanship, reliability, and initiative.

She won honorable mention in the poetry divi- sion. Page Sixty-one 2 A Sie Athletic Dinner A joint dinner of the physical edu- cation department, school nurses, dental department and school doctors was held April 2 in the East High cafeteria. The reservations for the event were in charge of Mrs. Hutto. The program consisted of an address by Miss Bessie'Goodrich and a demon- stration by the swimming classes under the direction of Mr. Russell. The following students took part: Hazel Black, Betty Crisman, Mabel Faust, Martha Foster, Francine Hig- gins, Florence Killon, Edith Newton, Roberta Reynolds, Marjorie Steel- smith, Helen Kile, Alvena Stromberg, Eva Swim, Edwanna' Walker, and Lois Wiley. East High Has May F ete The annual May Festival, spon- sored by the seniors and the athletic department, was held on the East High campus, VVednesday, May 21. The May Queen, Hazel World, and Cardinal, Orville Lewis, who were chosen by the popular vote of the seniors, presided over the festivi- ties. The attendants were: Margaret Plummer, Margaret Peterson, Lois VViley, Dorothy Porter, Nellie Op- penheim, Harlan Park, MilesiWil- son, jack Brownson, Dale Bowen, and Nile Canon. Clever dances were given by girls representing English, Dutch, Japan- ese, American Colonial, and French maidens. - Cicero Class Makes Brilliant j Showing Mrs. Story's Latin 6 class at the first marking period claimed the dis- tinction of being the only class in which all students received a one. Evidently Latin is not such a "dead" subject after all. This is the first class in ten years which has studied Ver- gills "Aeneid." Page Sixty-twa Ten Students Hear Judge F aville Because of the importance of Judge Faville's address on "Criminals', ten students were excused from class March 20 to attend his lecture. On their return, they gave reports to the various classes. Those selected were Paul Gilford, Don Thompson, john Ford, Vernon Holstad, Ruth Rouss, Helen Hanson, Clara Rosenheld, Lu- cille johnson, La Ray Warren, and Helen Kile. East High Students Attend Ames Conference Four students of East High at- tended the high school character con- ference held at Ames from March 21-23. The East High representatives were Lois Wiley, secretary of the student council, -Njile Canon, vice president of the council 3 Virginia West, chairman of the citizenship committee, and john Adlon, chair- man of the campaign committee. High schools from all over the state sent representatives. The P. T. A. made this trip possible by voting to pay the expenses of our four repre- sentatives. New Bicycle Racks Installed Upon arriving at school Monday. April 7, the bicyclers found a grand surprise in store for them. The School Board had installed new bicycle racks on the grounds between the building and the gymnasium. Miss Patterson Returns Miss Mary Estelle Patterson, Latin instructor, returned the first of April from a two months' visit to Florida. She motored there with her friend, Miss Mlae Goodrell, and spent several weeks in the heart of the citrus country in Lake Wales, Flor- ida. A Tasks -vw..

First Row: Lucille Buck, Esther Osness, Marie Vestre, Wilda Edwards, Mary Lou Martin, Margaret Barron, Hazel VVorld, Virginia XVest and Miss Vlfoodman. , Ernest The spring play, "Ernest," was capably presented in the East High auditorium, May 8 and 9, under the direction of Miss Helen Woodman. The theme of the play is the fond- ness of English girls for the thrilling and confidential name of Ernest. This obsession for the name is so fascinat- ing that it makes any who bears it irresistible. The frantic efforts of two young men to make it appear that they have this magic cognomen pro- vide many humorous situations and serve to keep the audience in a state of merriment. A rose garden scene, which was used as a background for the second and third acts, was one of the prettiest settings ever made for an East High production. A double cast was used in the pro- duction, cast I presenting it on Thursday night, and cast H on Fri- day night. Cast I John Worthing .......,.. Kenneth Brown Algernon Moncrieff ....

The l0B's who have been active in extra-curricular activities are as fol- lows: Girls, Glee Club: Eloise Hodges and Ardis Olson. Orchestra: lane Brown. Band: Lorna Rhems, Ralph Stiles, Jack Stafford, and David Tobis. Out for golf: Tom Hall, VVilliam Hill, Emile Tassin, Bill Phillips, Le- Roy Mahaffey, Bernard Peterson, and VVendell Smith. Gut for tennis: Adrienne Houg- ham, and Georgice McGlothlen. Library: Ruth Parker and Mar- jorie Olson. East P. T. A. Holds Annual Dinner More than two hundred parents and teachers attended the annual East High P. T. A. banquet which was held in the School Cafeteria, April 15. The program was given by the dramatic and music departments under the supervision of Miss Helen VVoodman and Mr. Harold Tallman. Grant Swanson acted as chairman of the program illustrating public speaking as ordinarily conceived. Pantomime in dramatics was shown by the giving of ballads by Helen Aschim and Barbara Harding. The part voice has to play in dramatic work was demonstrated in a dialogue given by Lucille Buck and Harold Shover. Ruth Sheppard read a narra- Pngc Sixty-four tive poem to show work in interpre- tation. A one-act play, which com- bined all four phases of drama work, was given, the following students taking part: Dwight Smith, Margaret Holtman, Francine Higgins, Nellie Oppenheim, Sami Turk, and Dick Simpson. Those assisting with properties, costumes, and stage for the produc- tion of the play were Don Hapton- stahl, Dale Bassett, Vivian Marquis, Daisy Goode, Vlfillard Fredrigill, hlennings Crawford, Leland Staples, and several from Mr. Hostetterys classes. Ruth Sheppard acted as stu- dent director of the play. The music department presented the boys, quartette, the boys' glee club, and the small chamber group. Paper Drive Is a Success Enthusiasm ran so high in the paper drive held March 31-April 8, that this drive is now another item in the list of successful events which have been made possible by the hearty cooperation of the entire school. So hearty was the support that the students succeeded in gathering a ton more paper than was brought in dur- ing the last drive in 1928. The pro- ceeds increased the general fund, which is spent for the good of all students, by 344271. Home Room 10 emerged victor in the drive by averaging 51.08 per capita. Home Room 16 won second place with an average of 31.04 per capita. Home Room 104 won third place and Home Room 110 ranked fourth. East High Artist Designs It is interesting to note that the cut adorning the cover page of the April issue of the "Parent Teacher News" was designed and executed by one of our East High art students, Eugene Lundberg. The cut which portrayed a gardener at work was a linoleum block. 2 East in Oratorical Contest Five industrious East High stu- dents competed in the preliminaries of the National Oratorical Contest, which were held in 311, Friday, March 31. Those competing were Margaret Peterson, speaking on "Re- reading the Constitutionng Lowell Dunlavy, on "American Democracy", Ruth Rouss, on "What the Constitu- tion Means to You", Merle Wildey, on "The Contents of the Constitu- tion"g and Felix Williams, on "The Negro and the Constitution." It was required that all the orations be on some phase of the constitution. Lowell Dunlavy and Margaret Peterson tied for Hrst place in the preliminaries. At a later giving of the orations, held April 3, Lowell emerged victor. He also represented East High in the City contest, placing third. Quill Staff Attends Clinic Under the auspices of the Drake chapter of the Sigma Delta Chi, the department of journalism of Drake University, and the Des Moines Register and Tribune, a clinic for high school publication advisors and staffs was held March Sth. Ten mem- bers of the Quill staff attended. East Advertises Subjects Salesmanship plus is being used in home rooms this semester to sell sub- jects of the curriculum. In the form of short talks, students tell of the individual merit of various subjects. Almost all courses are represented, especially the major ones. Des Moines High Schools- Receive Compliment The commercial departments of the Des Moines High Schools hold the distinction of having one of the most Original courses of study printed in the 1930 edition of the pamphlet "Four Courses of Study," issued by the Gregg Publishing Company. The course was submitted by Miss Maud Searl of the East High typing and shorthand department. The following extract is from the pamphlet : "The following outlines give peri- od-by-period assignments for the en- tire elementary course in typewrit- ing in four widely separated high schools known for the superior qual- ity of their instruction: East High School, Des Moines, Iowa: San Diego, California, Senior High Schoolg Hebrew Technical School for Girls, New York City: Argentine High School, Kansas City, Kansas." East Adopts New Plan for Ticket Sale The plan for selling tickets for the play "Ernest" was entirely different from any plan ever tried in East High before. Each student who sold two tickets was given one ticket free. lf a student sold ten tickets, he was given five free tickets, etc. In this way it was possible for every student to attend the play without cost. These free tickets could be used in any way the student desired-given to his friends, sold, or put away as souve- nirs. The reserve seat plan was dif- ferent this time also. The box office was open every morning from 8:00 o'clock to 8:30 o'clock, during both lunch periods, and again at the close of school. Reservation could be made as soon as a ticket was bought. Students Present Play Because of its successful presenta- tion before the P. T. A. on March 18, a one act play was given at two assemblies, Monday, March 21. The characters in the production were students of the Public Speaking ll class. The cast was as follows: Clifford Powers, Margaret Peterson, Carroll Caldwell, and Don Hapton- stahl.

Competing in the sub-district and city music contests which were held in East High, March 13 and 14, our musicians won three first places, five second places, and four third places. The first places were won by the boys' glee club, the boys' quartet, and Ralph Miller, oboe soloist. Second places were won by the orchestra, girls' glee club, chorus, tenor solo, Warden Van Gundy, and Hute solo, Frederick Johnson. Third places were won by the bandg trum- pet solo, Lowell Ebersole, baritone solo, Lloyd Latham, and trombone solo, Donald Ortlund. The result of the district music con- test April 4 and 5 at Roosevelt fur- ther proves our interest and talent in music. The boys, quartet and the boys' glee club won first places, and the small chamber group and oboe solo, Ralph Miller, placed second. In the State Music Contest held at Iowa City, May 2 and 3, the boys' glee club won first place. The boys' quartet includes Don Green, Warden Van Gundy, Lloyd Latham, and Billy Baldwin. The boys' glee club is comprised of the following students: Billy Bald- win, Woodrow Diehl, Don Green, Page Sixty-:ix Philip Jester, Carl Johnson, Paul Kennedy, Paul Milligan, Ray Nelson, Ralph Pierce, Ralph Davis, Bob Den- nis, Gerald Latham, Lloyd Latham, Eugene Lundberg, Mark Moon, Bob Peterson, Russell Proudfit, Gregory Secor, Harold Snyder, Dick Thomp- son, Warden Van Gundy, Felix Vig- gers, George W'interbottom, Herbert Wfinterbottom, Dale VVoods. Those making up the small cham- ber group are: Pat Kelsey, Dick Simpson, Helen Shaw, Frederick Johnson, Julian Lutz, Don Green. Mr. Harold Tallman, head of the music department, directed the stu- dents and prepared them for both of these contests. East High Musicians Enter- tained Wilson 9A's Twelve East High students enter- tained the 9A's at Woodrow Wilson, March 27, with a musical program. These twelve were: julian Lutz, Don Green, Carl Johnson, Lloyd Latham, Billy Baldwin, Eloise Hodges, Ardis Olson, Lowell Ebersole, Ralph Hall, Kenneth Young, James Caldwell, and Ralph Miller. Three Boys Tour With Drake Band Three East High boys accompanied the Drake band on its annual tour through Iowa. Julian Lutz and Ralph Miller played their clarinets in the band, Frederick Johnson played flute solos. The tour which began May lst lasted ten days, during which time many of the principal cities in Iowa were visited. Q fe-H f' --Xb N . ,,, ' .

Evelyn Teander, one of Prof. St0ye's pupils, then played the theme of the East High School song. From this, Prof. Stoye improvised a classical selection in a number of moods. Page Si'.1'ty-.rcvcn 2 New Books in Our Library for Social Committees Do you want games for your home room and club parties? Are you going to speak at a banquet program? Do you want to have special poems and stories for holidays? Why don't you visit our own library then? Many new books have been placed on the shelves of our East High library re- cently, and there are many which will help you if you are looking for an- swers to these questions. Among the new books of games are two very good ones, "The Boys' Book of Amusements" and "Boys' and Girls' Book of Indoor Gamesf' both by A. Frederick Collins. The first gives a large number of suggestions from many fields off-recreation, such as devices, experiments, games, puzzles, stunts and tricks,-amuse- ments that can be indulged in with little expense. Although the name implies that the book is only for boys, it is also adapted to girls. The second book tells of games of chance and skill. "Planning Your Party" by Emily Rose Burt, suggesting original and usable ideas for parties and socials, tells of complete plans for seventy separate parties and includes over 300 stunts and games. "Christmas in Legend and Story" by Elva S. Smith and Alice I. Hazel- tine has many good stories for re- telling and selections for reading aloud. These have literary merit, are reverent in spirit, and suitable for young people. The book also has splendid pictures from paintings of the best artists. "Highdays and Holidaysn by Flor- ence Adams and Elizabeth McCarrick is filled entirely with selected poems for special occasions. "Good Stories for Great Holidays" by Frances Jenkins Olcott is espe- cially arranged for story-telling and Page Sixty-eight reading aloud. There are 120 stories for 17 holidays-grave stories, gay ones, humorous or fanciful stories, some spiritual in feeling, and some cabalistic, giving that delicious thrill of horror so craved by boys and girls at Halloweien time. For the toastmasters and other after-dinner speakers there are two new books, "Toaster's Handbook" by Peggy Edmund and Harold Williams, and "More Toasts" by Marion Dix Mosher. The iirst one, besides giving many carefully classified toasts, has two articles valuable to persons un- accustomed to giving banquet speeches, "On the Possession of a Sense of Humor" and "Toasters, Toastmasters, and Toastsf' "And All the Men and Wo- men Merely Players" Miss VVoodman might well think that "all the world's a stage," for room 311 is almost filled with model stages made as semester projects by the Public Speaking H classes. All the stages follow the general plan of a real theatre, but each is worked out in detail as the individual student wished. Many of these will appear in the senior exhibits, and the others will be exhibited during the spring. Four Girls Prepare for Life Work Four girls, Mary Vincent, Opal German, Hazel Vincent, and Marjorie Nichols, are doing a fine bit of train- ing for their life work as gym teach- ers. All this semester these girls have been taking turns teaching a physical education class here in East High. Miss Spencer, of course, supervises them, but their work is done quite independently of her. The girls criti- cize each other's work and also re- ceive helpful criticism from Miss Spencer. 1 9 X Our Inheritance IEDITORJS NOTE: Since the Quill aims to record all events which are significant in the growth and progress of East High, it is fitting that "Our Inheritance," the his- tory and traditions of East High, be printed here as a permanent record. Such a history, compiled and written by the stu- dents, is naturally a matter of great in- terest antl importance not only to the stu- dents now enrolled in East High but also to those who will come later.1 "Memory, like the ivy, clings to olden times and ways and things." Though life be busy with the com- mon place, one cannot help thinking of those past events which have wrapped East High in a cloak of tradition, led her in the way of pro- gressive athletics, and housed her in as beautiful a building as may be found in all Iowa. This successful institution was founded in 1868 at the Bryant Build- ing on the corner of East Grand and Pennsylvania avenues. The first graduating class, consisting of one member, Miss Elizabeth Matthews, was graduated in 1871. Since, with the increase in the population of the city, the greater number of students made more space necessary, the high school was moved to the third floor of the Webster Building. This oc- curred in the fall of 1877. Then the school progressed quietly until again the increased enrollment made a larger building imperative. Old East High on the corner of East Twelfth Street and Court avenue was com- pleted in the year 1891 to meet this demand. The cornerstone of our present building was laid January 18, 1911, by Miss May Goodrell, who was principal of East High at that time. It is of interest that in the year 1928 at the anniversary assembly Miss Goodrell presented to the school a rare gift, the trowel which was used in laying this cornerstone. As a reward to the students for circulating a petition to secure bonds for equip- ment for the new building, permis- sion was granted them, at the request of Miss Goodrell, to move into the building in the spring of 1912. The pupils agreed to move all furnishings from old East High without cost to the district, for the new building had no equipment-not even a chair. Hence, on May 17, 1912, the entire student body turned out with ve- hicles of every description to move the furnishings from old East High. They formed a parade and marched to the new building, led by the G. A. R. Drum Corps of Kinsman Post No. 7. This parade could have had no better leaders than this loyal drum corps who were for many years closely associated with the life of East High. This moving commenced at seven o'clock, and by ten o'clock of that day the students were reciting lessons in the new building. To celebrate the event an anniver- sary assembly is held each year on the Friday nearest May 17. At this time the students rededicate them- selves to the ideals of Eash High by repeating the pledge which was first made by students at the dedicatory " 'A exercises on February 13, 1913. t Page S ixty-nine F6i' the threshold of this door of new and wider experiences and opportunities, let us pledge the future to a democ- racy of equal opportunity and a de- mocracy of culture that fits for higher thinking and nobler livingf In this spirit, and with a realization of our opportunity, we, the students of East High, dedicate this building, and the efforts of our lives 'For the Service of Humanity'." The first sentence of this pledge was taken from W. O. Riddellls ad- dress at the laying of the cornerstone in 1911. The motto, 'fFor the Service of Humanity," was submitted by Charles A. Cumming in response to a reward offered for the most appro- priate motto. He, however, did not claim the reward. To describe the present school building is not here our purpose, but it is significant to note that all the entrances of East High are patterned after old Classic models. The front entrance is patterned after the north portico of the Erechtheumg the north- east door is taken from the Choragic Monument to Lysicratesg the north- west from theTower of the XVindsg the southwest from the Parthenon, the southeast from the Temple of Neptune, Paestumg and the east from the Temple to H ephaestus. The sim- plicity of the classic style of the en- tire building has been a great factor in making all students feel that there can be no school more beautiful than their own East High. To A. Mc- Kinney, president of the school board at that time, the greatest credit is due for the style and harmony of the building. East High also boasts a bit of one of the greatest of our modern seats of learning. The ivy, planted by the senior class at the front of the build- ing on the third anniversary assem- bly, was sent from the historic town of Cambridge by Vincent Starzinger, Page Scvcnty then a student of Harvard Univer- sity. Among the long list of friends of East High who helped to bring about the erection of the present building and who were interested in creating a school spirit worthy of the motto "For the Service of Humanity," no name links itself more closely than that of Miss May Goodrell. She was graduated from East High in 1877. She served her Alma Mater as a teacher from the years 1888 to 1901 3 as principal from 1901 to 19183 and as president of the Alumni Associa- tion from 1918 to the present time. To her, East High will always owe a lasting debt of gratitude. It was at an early date that East High students became interested in athletics. Until 1893 baseball was the principal sport, but the advent of football and track in 1894 spelled the doom of baseball. In 1895 a city athletic association was formed, and the first city high school track meet was held in which the four high schools, East. VVest, North, and Capi- tal Park participated. The trophy, a silver cup, went to East High, who won it again the next two years and in consequence, was allowed to keep it. lt may now be seen in the trophy case, the Hrst trophy! At this time football teams were uncommon, and few knew the rudi- ments of the game. One student, lllurdair lilartung, had been left the football with which the students of ,87 had played Rugby. He learned the game of football and taught it to some of his schoolmates, who organ- ized a team but were unable to secure many games. In 1894 Miss Millicent Cuplin, a teacher of mathematics in East High, was successful in having football adopted as a school sport, and the first team under the auspices of the school was formed. NVill Chase was made captain, and Bur- dair llartung, the manager. VV ith a Q promising football team, colors were desirable, and a committee from the East High Athletic Association, then newly formed, selected Red and Black. The team played Drake's second team, C. C. C. College, Simp- son, Crescents, Des Moines College, and North High in that year, losing only the Simpson game. The team was self-supporting and was only partly reimbursed by the gate re- ceipts. As football games sometimes ended in a "free-for-alli' it was evident that there was a need for the develop- ing of a higher type of sportsman- ship. In 1904 Sidney A. Foster of- fered the Foster trophy to the high school in Des Moines winning the city championship three years in suc- cession and at the same conducting itself in an irreproachable manner towa.rd its adversaries. In 1910 this trophy, an American flag, came to East High, and it may now be seen in the trophy case. The Garver tro- phy, a full-sized silver football, was won at the same time. In 1914, realizing that athletic teams work under great handicaps without the proper training ground, the alumni, through the school board, secured the lease for the present athletic field. The school furnished the means for grading and tiling it. The student body under the direction of Coach Van Liew cleared it, Clark Beard, a graduate and an engineer, donated his services in making the necessary drafts. The school dedi- cated the field with a large bonfire and speeches, and christened it Alum- ni Field in appreciation of the sup- port and help of the Alumni. It then expressed a wish that George Garton, Fred Van Liew, Clark Beard, and J. A. McKinney should always have free admission to the field, because of their untiring efforts in securing it. Although foot- ball has long been one of the favorite X ..... sports, one will see if one examines the trophy case that East High stu- dents have also won laurels in other athletic endeavors: track, basketball, golf, and swimming. No reference to athletic contests is complete without the mention of the spirited singing and cheering by the students and alumni on all such occasions. Two of the favorite yells in 1893 and 1894 were: Ricka-Chicka-Boom ! Ricka-Chicka-Boom ! Ricka-Chicka-Ricka-Chicka Boom! Boom! Boom! Whoop La Re! Whoop La Ray East Des Moines High School I. O. A. Rah! Rah! Rah! She is Best! Maxima! Maxima! E. H. S. The school song was written by Velda XVilbern in the year 1920. Dear East High, you are the school for me. You will always win the victory. Red and Black to you we'll be true, And we will bring great honors to you. Hip-hooray, here's to the Black and Red, O'er the world your fame is widely spread. Gnward we will do or die, For Dear East High! The Student Council and the sen- ior class, in the fall of 1921, asked the students to cooperate in design- ing and adopting a standard school pin. From the large number of de- signs submitted, that of Eugene Gray was chosen by the vote of the student body. It was considered especially Page Seventy-one WT fitting since he used as a motif the oak leaf in recognition of the admira- tion that East High students have for the native oaks on their campus. In memory of the boys who val- iantly fought for their country, two bronze tablets have been placed in the front entrance. The Liberty bonds purchased by the students dur- ing the war and the donations given by the alumni made this memorial possible. Here are found the names of those who fought in the Worlcl War and the Spanish American VVar. A star indicates those who lost their lives in the service. As a further me- morial to each boy who lost his life in the World VVar, East High stu- dents planted on the campus a tree, a living tribute to his memory. Each year on Memorial Day the students hold an assembly in which they do reverence to those who have paid the supreme sacrifice for their country. The student publication, the Quill, was started in the spring of 1905, un- der the direction of Miss Mary Es- telle Patterson, two numbers being issued during the last part of the year. The next year the infant paper was put on its feet, and by the year following, it had become a regular monthly magazine, with an issue each month of the school year except Sep- tember. In September, 1917, in order to decrease expenses during the VVorld War, the magazine was changed to a quarterly, and a bi- weekly newspaper of pretentious size called the Quillette was published in addition. The Quillette lived but a year, and the magazine has since re- mained a quarterly. It aims to record all events which are significant in the growth and progress of East High and to publish all worthy literary efforts of the school. The name 'fThe Quilli' was suggested by Miss Frances Church, teacher of chem- istry. V Those who know East High most Page Seventy-two intimately realize that the spirit of the school is its most precious posses- sion. One student organization, above all others, which has bent its efforts toward maintaining this spirit is the Student Council. It was organ- ized in April, 1919, at the suggestion of A. Burton, principal of East High since 1918, in order to bring about greater opportunity for student participation in the management of school activities. That enthusiastic spiritiof cooperation and self-reliance which characterizes East High, whether on the held or in the class- room, is an inheritance bequeathed- it by the alumni. Through decade upon decade it may be traced, class after class has handed it down untarnished, and all those glorious deeds which have distinguished East High are but the product of the influence of that spirit. East High Graduates During the many years of East High's history, fifty-six senior classes, totaling 5,904 pupils, have been graduated from the school. Vlfay back in 1871 the first class, which was made up of but one senior, was graduated. Four years later, in 1875, another class of four pupils left the school. Since that time there has been at least one graduating class and recently two or three graduating classes each year. The practice of having both a january and a June graduating class was inaugurated in 1891. ln 1919 the first August sum- mer school class was graduated. Since 1871 the number of seniors in the graduating classes has in- creased each year. The June class of 1930, which has 100 students more than the preceding January class, the largest mid-year group ever grad- uated, has 277 members. Page Sezfeuty-three ,- Editor-in-Chief...

Many who lack imagination believe that the pi- rate was a mere thief who robbed only for the money which he seized. There are many with active imagina- tions, however, who picture the pirate as a daring fellow who followed his life of plunder because of the adven- ture and excitement which the pic- turesque life of the sea alone ottered. Howard Pyle, well known author, seems to hold a different view, for in his l.'irate Book he writes of his pirate hero, "lt is not because of his life of adventure and daring that l admire this as one of my favorite heroesg nor is it because of blowing winds nor the ocean nor balmy islands which he knew so wellg nor is it because of gold he spent nor treas- ure he hid. He was a man who knew his own mind and what he Wantedf' Now the seniors are embarking on the dangerous cruise of life. ln the struggle in which they will engage in the near future, may each one live up to Howard Pyle's characterization of his hero: "He was a man who knew his own mind and what he wantedf, New Method Inaugurated liach lligh has again taken the initiative in establishing a new sys- tem in the school which, it is hoped, will prove useful and practical to many students. This system. by which students selected from various classes make a tour of the home rooms and deliver short matter-oil fact speeches concerning the various subjects now offered in the school, is being carried out this semester merely as an experiment. lf the sys- tem proves as beneficial as it should be, for nothing has more intiuence on the minds of the student body than the sincere and unbiased opin- ions of fellow students, it will, in all probability, be continued next year. Although it has been taken for granted that students have a definite idea concerning their high school pro- grams and that they know precisely what subjects they will take and why they should take them, it is often sur- prising how little they do know about the curriculum. It is a common oc- currence to find pupils who do not have the slightest idea why they elect certain subjects or why they should be taking some other. lt would cer- tainly be unfortunate if such students were allowed to go through high school without a clear conception of the subjects offered and the advan- tages to be received from including them in their course. This new sys- tem is being inaugurated to help such students. but the leaders of the move- ment also hope that the speeches given by the representatives will give the whole student body a better idea of the commercial and cultural value of the various subjects offered. Page St't'r'n11y-jim' '3i' The Evils of a Modern Pirate Undoubtedly the logical home for pirates is on board a ship, but some- how or other, we often find them out of their place. A favorite haunt for certain pirates is the soul of a high school student. Of course, they are not often recognized as such, but the evil they do is very similar to that done by buccaneers. Usually they go under assumed names, the most fa mous of which are Procrastination, Carelessness, Laziness, and Dishon- esty. The most cunning and yet deaden- ing of these pirates, Mr. Procrastina- tion, is small physically, but huge mentally. Every time a duty pre- sents itself to the student, a wee little voice somewhere down in his soul whispers, "You can do that tomor- row. There isn't any hurryf, This voice belongs to none other than Mr. Procrastinating Pirate, who, sad .to say, is very often stronger than the person's will-power. The well known proverb, "Never put off until to- morrow what you can do today,', means nothing to him. Mr. Carelessness is so different in appearance from his fellow-pirate that he hardly seems to belong to the same class. He is a slouchy, sloven- ly acting gentleman tif he can be called a gentlemanj, who seems to have not a care in the world. It is he who leads astray a student's hand when he is writing a test, and who causes queer wrong things to be writ- ten on the paper. He influences the student to such a degree that he doesn't care how many ink blots are on his English theme, or how care- lessly his books are thrown around on top of his locker or in the corri- dor. Pirate Carelessness has never heard of the maxim, "A stitch in time saves ninef' Page Seventy-s1'x As soon as his two fellow-pirates have accomplished their quota of evil, fat Mr. Laziness has a simple task. I-Ie simply entices the student with thoughts of how much pleas- anter it is to sit under a shade tree all day than to study lessons. Soon th's becomes a habit difficult to break. According to this old pirate, it is bet- ter to fiit along without exerting one's brain at all than to grasp the knowl- edge so plainly visible in our books. Usually, we find that this pirate exerts more strength in finding an alibi for his laziness than what would be required to fulfill his obligations. Last, but no less important, comes Mr. Dishonesty, who causes the most irreparable harm. When a student is taking a test, this evil conspirator di- rects the student's eyes toward his classmatels paper. With his aid, it is very easy for the student to cheat. This mischief does not result in a happy ending. In fact, if the un- lucky student is caught, he must "pay the piper." Now the problem before every stu- dent is: How to banish these wicked pirates from his soul. The only solu- tion thus far discovered is to enter into school life so earnestly and so enthusiastically that even four ruth- less pirates cannot tempt him into easy-going, careless, shiftless, dis- honest habits. Choosing a Career? Are you having difficulty in decid- ing on your career? Are you uncer- tain of your course after graduation? There are many of East High stu- dents in this predicament. To remedy this, a course in voca- tions would be extremely beneficial if added to the curriculum. It would be a decided advantage to -study the occupations of the work-a-day world and in this fashion determine your own niche in it. IBIQDADSIDEI Quill Staff Learns Its Fate Audible sighs of anticipation could be heard on every handg all eyes in the room had a far-away, speculative lookg somewhere could be heard the tinny tunes of a mechanical pianog it was the noon hour at the "Gypsy Tea Room" and the "QU1LL" staff were imbibing a little nourishment. But what was the reason for these manifestations of supreme satisfac- tion, these racking sighs, these far- away dreamy looks? Strange to say, this display of emotion was caused by a few tea leaves in a teapot. Now the "Gypsy Tea Room" is located upon one of the bustling downtown streets along with numer- ous other eating houses, but it dis- tinguishes itself from the rest by the fact that it is tenanted by one of those strange creatures that are prone to dabble in witchcraft. With wheedling tones and cabalistic mo- tions she had induced the impressed staff to display the tea leaves repos- ing quietly at the bottom of the cups. Over these she made various impres- sive passes and motions and finally in deep sepulchral tones of forebod- ing made known that which her in- vocations had revealed. For every girl there was the in- evitable "tall dark man," while one fair journalist was even promised three! Many catty remarks and en- vious glances were cast her way. Most of the boys' futures were as black as the proverbial thunder cloud. She even went so far as to hint that they would have to get up at live oiclock every morning to make fires in the chilly furnace. For many moments the dread monotones dispensed these choice morsels of knowledge, leaving some in a state of glad anticipation or dark uncertainty according to their degree of belief in the "black artsf' But youth is youth and is not long impressed. VVith the help of the soothing properties of exotic Eastern incense and the more delectable odor of ham and eggs, the witch's sonor- ous mutterings and mystic incanta- tions were soon forgotten, and for the next half hour the musical tinkle of the tableware made a commend- able eifort to harmonize with the raucous thumpings of the mechanical piano. Miss Macy Exhibits at Iowa Art Guild Miss Macy, our art teacher, brought honor upon East High at an exhibition held in March at the City Library. She displayed five paint- ings: "Hillside," and "Pottery Mar- ket," both of which she painted at Cuernavaca, Mexicog "VVaveland Parkf' "Apple Blossoms," and "Old Dutch House." The painting of "XVaveland Park" now hangs in Miss Helmreich's office where its lovely brilliant colors spread cheer and sun- shine. Page Seventy-seven Q Mr. Burton, Our Musician On the much thumbed pages of musty volumes fwritten by some long-forgotten chroniclerj or even on the comparatively new sheets of a "XVho's VVho," it can be found that those persons who have risen from the "herd" to respected and coveted positions have, at some period of their lives, worshipped at the shrine of the llluses. The delight in music, literature. and the other arts is per- haps one of the factors that help draw the line between culture and boorishness. VVe are very proud to say that there are very few high schools in Iowa that have a principal as versa- tile as ours at East, especially along the musical line. Mr. Burton first began to pick out the difficult prin- ciples of music on the violin at the very immature age of seven, and his early training, together with his com- plete mastery of the fundamentals of music, made it comparatively easy for him to acquire the ability to learn other instruments. In later years, at his home in Westfield, Indiana, Mr. Burton took active part in the church choirs and later taught music. He is intimately acquainted with the clari- net and cello, and in his own words, can "play some" on the piano. He has played in Chicago and Rock I sland, and has also taught music and directed bands in these places. Undoubtedly Mr. Burton has thoroughly learned the "value of notes" and realizes they could, if it were desired, be easily turned into "quarters" and "halves," for he has been instrumental in introducing his three children into the mysteries of the staff. Eugene, who played the violin in the East High orchestra, is now teacher of violin at Newton, Iowa. Eleanor, who took part in many music activities in East High, is now a graduate of Drake and an accompanist on the piano. Martha Alice, who while in East High won Pagr Sf'1't'1!fj'-L'I'QIIf, L in ,. ...... . . 'S X --N -X first place in the violin cello solo at the state music contest held at Iowa City May, 1928, is now a sophomore at Drake where she is a member of the Drake Trio and Drake Symphony orchestra. The three compose the llurton Trio, wh'ch is held in high esteem by local music lovers. Like all real classical lovers, Mr. Burton is not in sympathy with our modern syncopation and disapproves of it for the reason that it has too much of the element of "noise and dumb show." Notwithstanding his aversion to "Jazz," Mr. Burton, like the broad-minded person he really is, tolerates it on all occasions upon which this type of music is appro- priate. Mr. Burton attributes his past and present success to good music and hard work for, as he says, "it has undoubtedly kept me from the corner drug store and the question- able characters that usually infest these places." Mr. Robinson Takes Part in "Pygmalion', Mr. Francis Robinson, our Land- scaping teacher, took the part of Alfred Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw's play, "Pygmalion," which was given at the Belle Kendall Memorial Community Play I-Iouse during March. It has been said that the part which Mr. Robinson so capably played is one of the most difficult in the production. East High Inventor Bert Gilbert, prominent East High student and athlete, has recently com- pleted a very singular vehicle known as a "skier." It is fashioned along the lines of an aeroplane and mounted on thin steel runners. Powered by a two cylinder air-cooled engine, the strange craft is capable of attaining a speed of sixty miles per hour. The inventor stated that the "Skier" is easily converted into a water craft by substituting pontoons for the run- ners. .

Front Page Stuff N o person in East High has more often "made', the first page of the "Tribune-Capital" than Mary Rojek -of home room 313. Mary, a grad- uate of Capital City Commercial Col- lege, has been contributing top line "wisecracks" for several years. One of her twelve champion top liners which have been published is: "The man who drives with both hands keeps the modern girl worried. She wonders what he would do if he had to blow his nose." X ig:-, Jobs Go Begging at East Ragged coat sleeves and shoddy footwear are not excusable at East High: neither is the absence of pens and other necessary paraphernalia tolerated. The reasons are-Miss Searl and her job department. This very helpful department procures em- ployment for a vast number of job- less East High students, benefiting them, perhaps, more than many days of hard work upon Math or an equal number of days upon the study of Chaucer. These jobs range all the way from slinging a mop in some large office building to polishing shoes at one of the many shining establishments. Contrary to the numerous rumors to the effect that employment is scarce in this city, Miss Searl always has many good positions at hand: in fact, she often is forced to scurry into the highways and byways of East High and call loudly, even beseech, unin- terested students to fill these posi- tions. These are usually quickly filled, however, for-VVell "hot dogs" cost five cents a piece, and a person has got to eat to live. East High Talent in 'Trivolitiesn The majority of the home talent participating in the Paramount "Friv- olities of l93O," which was held April S-ll, came from East High. The following students had parts: Dale Bowen, Emma Klang, Corrine Rider, Harrison Rider, Carroll McGregor, Ruth Peterson, Yvonne Schaeffer, Josephine Ringrose, Williana Harri- son, VVilliam Bolton, Thor Berg- strum, Eloise Hodges, Nellie Oppen- heim, Isabelle Conkling, Mary Jane Grimes, Edris Morgan, Arthur Ver- saw, Dorothy Conley, and Dorothy Headlee.

I am 21 yearth of age. Hoping to hear from you thoon, I remain Yourth Thincerely, I. Needa Mann. Answer: Your mother is right, and until you are a little older, I would not advise it. After all, the Hrst 100 years are the hardest, as Shakespeare rightly remarked. Perhaps a couple of hours of making taffy or popcorn would be all right, for one of your tender years, if the young man has been investigated and found mildly enjoyable. Dear Miss Payne: VV hat shall I do? The young man whom I wish to impress, treats me in a very motherly manner. VV hat shall I do? This attitude agitates me very much. This attitude is even worse than a brotherly manner. Corey Apple. Answer: Treat him neither as a mother or brother but smother him.. Dear Miss Payne: What shall I do? just because I wouldn't let my boy friend dance, smoke, sing, use Stacomb, gum or sassafrass, eat onions, wear taps on his heels, or suspenders, or read cow- boy stories, he broke our engagement. How can I regain his love? Lotta Baloney. Answer: My poor abused child, the very idea of a mere man attempting to enact such a dreadfully demoralizing demeanor. Do not try to regain his love. There are better dogs in the dog pound than ever were caught. Dear Madame: I am a high school boy of East Des Moines, and have always been Page Eighty Xi.sc.b.xa painfully honest. Today the teacher left the room and I took the time to whisper to my companions. Un her return, she inquired who had' been talking, and Miss Payne, I did not hold up my hand. The thought of this preys upon my conscience. It weighs upon my heart. At times I fear I will go mad. Miss Payne, I am coming to you for advice. What can I do to erase from my mind the terrible effects of my folly? Speck Etty. Answer: Speck, this is very regrettable. A boy of your high moral standing should refrain from lowering his standard. The proper thing for you to have done would have been to chirp, "Teacher, Johnny, and Mary, and Ethel, and Dick were talking too," and in her indignation at the culprits she would either forget your part or forgive you entirely. A Nose for News "East High Club Holds Initiation" or "East High Seniors Elect Offi- cersl' often appears as a headline in any one of the Des Moines papers. Do you realize, as you eagerly scan the day's news, how East High pub- licity is promoted, how your name or your friends' names get into print? Believe it or not, the Quill staff is the organization responsible for this pub- of the most important licity. One jobs, in fact, is the collecting and the of the news of the Hwriting upi' school. The news writing is carried on by a competitive basis, a prize being offered to the staff member who has the most articles published. During the present semester, up to the time this goes to press, the Quill staff has succeeded in having 498 column inches of news published in the three Des Moines papers, the "Register,,' the "Tribune," and the "Plain Talk." This total represents about 280 articles averaging 120 words each. The aggregate amounts to more than 8,400 words. GIQAIBIBI 9 T If LDC East Wins Indoor Track Title A well-balanced track team from East High gave proof to anxious fans who were dubious of the teamls pros- pects by winning the city indoor track meet held Friday evening, April ll, in the Drake Fieldhouse. North High captured a well earned second place by counting heavily in the field events, winning first place in the pole vault, high jump and second in the shotput. Roosevelt trailed North by seven points, making most of their points in the individual events. The two-mile relay was by far the best event on the program, East and Roosevelt finishing first and second, respectively. Two judges gave the race to East, and two thought it was a dead beat, so the referee awarded the decision to the Red and Black. The final standings were East 392, North 31, Roosevelt 24, and Lincoln 155. East Wins Oskaloosa Meet XV ith every man on the team per- forming in good style, the East High track team won a notable victory in the Annual Oskaloosa Invitation Mleet, Saturday, April 19. East counted heavily in every department, particularly in the relays, in which they placed five times. The Red and Black won the mile relay, took second in the two-mile relay, third in the half-mile, second in the 440, and second in the sprint medley. Holmes of East took second in the mile run, and Brill and Rook took second and third respectively in the 120-high hurdles. The boys who ran on the re- lay teams were: Bert Gilbert, Garnet Daley, Don Green, George Holmes, Tom Thompson, Alfred Flook, Harry Hayes, Francis O,Connell, and Clar- ence Stevens. Swimmers Receive Monograms Eleven erstwhile mermen stalked upon the stage Friday, April 23, and received from the hands of our di- minutive swimming coach, "Scotty" Russell, some beautiful red and black monograms which were presented to them as a reward for their hard work in the pool. This season sees the graduation of several stars, including llale llrown, Henry Jerome, Edward liillin, and Russell Johnson. The team will be very much weakened by their leaving, and every prospective swim- mer should go out next year in order to rebuild the team to its usual high standard. The eleven paddlers who received their letters are as follows: two rings ---Henry Jerome, Hale Brown, Ed- ward Killin, and Russell Johnsong one ring--Martin Kimber, Judson Crawford, Don Ellis, John Saroka, George Cosson, Clifford Morgan, and Tom Chrisman.

Basketball Men Receive Letters Because of the new ruling concern- ing basketball letters,-that only first team men who play twenty quarters are eligible to receive letters,-only seven hoopsters were fortunate enough to be honored with mono- grams for the past season. The pre- sentations were made at an athletic assembly on Friday, April 23. Only two letter-men will be missing when the next season starts, and East High should be represented by a strong quintet. Ralph Davis and Arthur Krasinski, both elongated centers, will be graduated with the June class. The seven boys receiving mono- grams are as follows: Three ring, Page Eighty-two Ralph Davis, two ring, Arthur Kra- sinski and Lyle Rickabaughg one ring, Thor Bergstrom, Versil Deskin, George Cilva, and Richard Frisk. East Lays Plans for State Golf Meet Playing host to golfers from all over the state is not an easy task, if you ask Mr. Hostetter, East High's capable golf mentor. This will not be a new experience to our coach, for he was the originator of the state meet and planned the first one, which was held on the Grandview links of this city. The meet this year is the third in the golf history of Iowa high schools, and will be held Saturday, May 24. A very large number of entries is e - X ik' - F, SWIMMING TEAM Third Row: Edward Killin, Donald Ellis, XVilliam Carberry, Henry Jerome, Russell Johnson and John Hartung.

' expected and close competition is cer- tain to be the feature of the event. The team which represents East High in the meet is composed of Fred Hill, Carl Hall, Kenneth Prine, Don Ortlund, and Matthew Baird, prob- able alternate. East Splits Net Meet with Roughriders The Roosevelt tennis team staged a wonderful comeback to gain an even break with East High on Thurs- day, April 24. The singles were played on the Des Moines Tennis Club courts and the doubles matches were played on Rooseveltls new ce- ment courts. The first three East High men outclassed their opponents, but the Blue and YVhite came back to win the No, 4 singles match and both the doubles matches. The final standings were: Singles Robert Patterson CED defeated XVarren Piper George Cilva. CED defeated Eugene Middlebrook CRD.

Perverse weather conditions greatly handi- capped early practice, and for that reason it will probably take a longer time for the team to get into good shape. Several of last year's stars are running true to form and many vic- tories should be gained in the spring meets. The eight boys who are in line to represent the Red and Black are as follows: Alfred Mohler, George Cilva, George Schane, Richard Frisk, Ralph Miller, Bob Patterson, Louis Rosenstein, and iMorris Steinway. The -gspring tennis schedule for the Des'Moines high schools appears below. . p Week ending April 26- East vs. Roosevelt. North vs. Lincoln. W'eek ending May 3- East vs. Lincoln. Roosevelt vs. North.

Football Prospects Encouraging As the track season draws to a close, the minds of East High stu- dents turn to that eternal question, "What kind of a team are we going to have next fall?" One almost always thinks of those who are leav- ing, but he seldom stops to realize the amount and quality of the re- mainder ot last yearls squad and the possibilities of the incoming sopho- more class. A large part of last fall's squad will be with us, and the prospects for a capable team are unusually bright. Those who will form the nucleus of our football team are Harry Hayes, Versil Deskin, Lyle Rickabaugh, Bob Page Eighty-four , H -..Q.f -.I . , g -Q: fe- ' Rooks, John Hartung, Thor Berg- strom, and Marion Strait. These boys will be able to give the stiffest opposition to rival schools, we look farther ahead the of winning the city cham- sort of and as chances pionship seem very hopeful. b East has compiled a schedule for this year which includes most of the outstanding teams in the state. Dav- enport, always a strong contender for the state title, has been placed on the schedule, and Iowa City, an old rival, has been dropped. It is very probable that several night games will be played this year, and if last season's game with North High has any significance, the city and the stu- dent body will turn out in large numbers for these twilight contests. The completed schedule appears be- low: September 20-Waterloo-here. September 27-Davenport-here. October 4-Cedar Rapids-there. October 11-Oskaloosa-there. October 18-Marshalltown-there. October 25-Open date. November 1-Lincoln-here. November 8-North-here. November 15-Roosevelt-here. Schoolmasters' Golf Strange as it may seem, the dents of East High are not the only persons who engage in athletic con- tests. Many of the men teachers in East High and other junior and senior high schools in the city played in a schoolmasters' golf tournament Sat- urday, May 3, at Woodside Golf Club, but alas, from the results We must come to the conclusion that they know the meaning of FOUR rather than FORE! The teachers representing East High were: A. J. Burton, D. Wil- liams, W. P. Mayo, John Gabrielson, D. O. Wilson, O. G. Prichard, H. A. White, VVill Lyman, and A. G.

Although there was considerable delay owing to a snowstorm, Miss Spencer reports that everyone enjoyed the trip and profited by the information concern- ing equipment, which was an import- ant factor in the program. Good Health Good health is a matter of choice. Only plain, wholesome food should be eaten. Over-eating, intoxicants, and stimu- lants avoid. Drink plenty of water. Have plenty of fresh air in the bed- room. Eight to nine hours' sleep every night. Always breathe deeply in the open air. Look to the cleanliness of body and mind. Take regular outdoor exercise. Heed sanitation, sobriety, and safety iirst. God made the sun too strong for my eyes but he took good care to give me eyelids. He let the burning, all- devouring oxygen into my system, but he took good care to dilute it with four-fifths of nitrogen. -Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes.

Are We Wal'-Minded? Recently a vote was taken at Lin- coln High School to learn the choice of the student body in regard to our national anthem. The decision was between "The Star Spangled Ban- ner" and "America the Beautiful." Out of 1,339 students, 924 cast votes for the former and 415 for the latter. Does this fact prove that we of the younger generation tend to approve of wars? It might seem so, but after think- ing it over is it other than natural that the present national anthem should hold first place in our hearts? It is the song that has stirred our pulses since we were small children. VVe love its music, even without its words. Primarily, the song is a beau- tiful tribute to our flag and the things for which it stands.

The class suddenly sat up and cheered. The "two-hundred-flyers" were especially pleased because the honor was unexpected. Perhaps their repre- sentative knew, but, like the wise young man he is, he kept it secret from his classmates. Home Economics NV hen one of the meetings of the Home Economics club promised to be unusually interesting and important, this organization generously invited all the East High girls to attend. All expectations were fulfilled, for Miss McKinley, representative of the Utica, talked to the girls on "Styles" She stressed the fact that the pastel shades are the most fashionable this spring. Butter yellow, bright green, and blue are also to be good colors. Dresses are to be worn below the knees, but the formal gown can be of any length. Suits in the lighter shades are very good and can be worn any time during the day. Following her speech was a show- ing of suits, formals, afternoon, gingham frocks, shoes, and lingerie. The models were Ruth Young, Anna Moorin, Marjorie Cotton, Mary O'Hara, Mary McElwain, Madeline Steele, Cora Racek, Irene Sheets, and Velda McFadden. Cap and Dagger-Purple M ask XYith a thrill of anticipation after so many weeks of waiting, the mem- bers of the Cap and Dagger met in room 311, Thursday, April 17, to en- joy what the boys' club had prepared for them. As the Purple Mask is unhampered by the presence of any girls, it was necessary to manufacture one for the presentation of their part of the pro- gram. Accordingly, Robert Dennis changed his name to "Mary," and squeaked through his part of "The Clod" admirably. The audience roared with laughter at the scene por- trayed. First the wounded Northern soldier, Howard Porter, slunk into the kitchen, after Mary and her hus- band Thaddeus, Gilbert Bolton, had gone to bed. Then he hid in a cubby hole while the Southern sergeant, Richard McGahan, and his Southern soldier, Delmar Moon, cross-ques- tioned the man and wife. After they had left the room, the soldier pleaded with Mary, softened her heart, and then retired to let Mary kill the two Southerners. After the boys had retired with laurels, the girls entertained them with a presentation of "For Distin- guished Service." Laurel Shaffer, as Eleanor Burton, persuaded Margaret Plummer, who was Mrs. Jim Hard- ing, into taking better care of her husband. She artfully accomplished this end with the aid of Mary, her maid, Dorothy Connely, and a box of caramel chocolates.

Each stu- dent pledged himself to bring approx- imately the light bundle of 500 pounds. Since all of them kept their promise, they emerged victorious. Euclidean Perhaps the student body, as a whole, thinks that the members of the Euclidean Club spend their whole time measuring and figuring, but this idea can be easily remedied if one would attend some of their meetings. The Euclideans have been profitably spending their spare study time in- vestigating the lives of famous mathematicians. Two very interest- ing biographical sketches were given, namely, a life of Euclid by Robert Bullis, and a life of Sir Isaac New- ton by Mary VVills.

What the Home Rooms l Have Done The value of tlie Home Rooms has never been so evident as in this past year. One can readily appreciate the importance of these organizations by glancing over their list of successful campaigns and projects. The Ex- travaganza, two school plays, the paper drive, track meet, and home room talks on the curriculum were all sponsored by the Home Rooms. Home Room 1 1 0 Home room 110 has, perhaps, more notable people in it than any other room in East High, for it has the president and treasurer ot the senior class, to say nothing of the fact that the Honorable Henry "judge, Jerome, Alfred "Professor" Holm, Howard "Doctor', Porter, and George "Senator', Podrebarac reside in the "Churchtied'l atmosphere ot 110. However, these austere titles did not prevent them from helping win the intramural track meet from their rivals 205 and 104. El Circulo Espanol The Spanish Club has been keep- ing a scrap book of all the newspaper clippings that are in any way con- nected with Spain or Spanish cus- toms. The members answer the roll call by giving some current events on Spanish subjects. ln order to increase their knowl- edge and use of the Spanish lan- guage, their business meetings are carried on in the foreign tongue. The programs also treat of Spanish cus- toms, costumes, and ideals.

At the Shorthand banquet which was held April 21, 1930, an imaginary airplane of the speed and progress in stenographic work was built. Maxine Brown, president of the club, took charge of the building of the plane, as toastmistress. The struc- ture went on as follows: Fuselage-Irene Kuhns. Propeller-Gladys Otteson. ' Control Stick- Lucille Woold- ridge. Wings-Aniiie McPherson. The shorthand teachers of East High were guests of the society as pilots of the plane. Mrs. Greenlee spoke in behalf of the Pilots, and Miss Helmreieh acted as Mechanic. Page N ineiy-eight found that there was a radio on board. The operator tuned in and what do you think the guests heard? Static? No, sir! None other than Madeline Steele and Irene Sheets singing, 'Tm Following You." E Epi Tan-Vignolian Planning a joint party gave the members of the E Epi Tan and Vig- nolian clubs an excuse for holding a joint meeting. This was very fortunate for two reasons: first, the party was planned, and second, all persons who attended were given the privilege of hearing Mr. Campbell, president of the Campbell Heating Company, talk on the "Heating of Houses." He gave a detailed explanation of forced air heating, and gave some arguments for and against pipeless furnaces.

To Those Whom It May Concern According to members of home room ll8, they have a Hweaknessu for education. lu fact, the students of that home room have originated the following motto: "Home Room ll8 proclaim to East High. That were ready to workg we're ready to try. lVe're going to win in this contest of Brains. Wie don't care a bit if it takes all our pains." Upon the strength of this motto Home Room llS issued the following challenge : "XV e, the students of Home Room 118, in order to form a more perfect scholarsliip, establish good records, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the future contest and promote fame for liast High, do ordain and establish this challenge for the good of East llighf' Home Rooms 215, 302, and 205 have accepted this challenge, and the Wllll'l61' will be determined by the grades received during the grade pe- riod Nlarch l7 to April 24.

Girl Reserves I A series of triangles marked on the sidewalk led the Girl Reserves to the street car which took them to Greenwood Park for a treasure hunt, April 25. Here another trail ended in the much coveted treasure. Having accomplished their pur- pose, the girls continued to entertain themselves by picking flowers. Then the entertainment became educational while the treasure seekers Went to seek heavenly bodies through the Drake Fieldhouse telescope. The Girl Reserves, in addition to being fun-living, education-pursuing girls, are "Ever dependableu and "Ready for servicef' as was shown on May 4, when they entertained the youngsters at the Children's Home. Page One Hundred East High Clubs Hold Picnics In the spring the student's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of picnics and weiners. The Euclidean Club held a picnic in Pioneer Park last VVednesday, May 7. Hester johnson was chair- man. The Shakespearean Club held an initiation picnic at Grandview Park, Tuesday, May 13. The committee in charge consisted of Margaret Peter- son, chairman, Louise Loizeaux, Vir- ginia Patterson, and Lowell Dun- lavy. The Aeolian Club also held an in- itiation at Grandview Park, Friday May 16. Evelyn Beck was chairman in charge of arrangements. !

Sodalitas Romana Banquet Those who were lucky enough to be present at the annual Latin Club banquet, May 15, were transported to the Rome of old. The guests were dressed-in the elaborate togas and the Hat sandals of the picturesque Romans. After a "ceremony of the auspices" a thanks to the gods was given, and then the festivities began. The tables had been arranged U-shape in old Roman style, and were prettily decor- ated with colors and favors Cscroll type menusj. After the guests were seated, the serving girls, dressed in special slave garb, passed the appetizer to the guests. This consisted of egg, fresh onions, olives, cold sausage, and a breath sweetener to counteract the onions. Then the guests were given a chance to use their fingers forxonly spoons were used. After this course, linger bowls were passed and the tables were care- fully wiped with purple cloths. Then came the parade of the roasted chickens, so that the guests' appetites should be further whetted. Soon the chickens were returned, nicely carved for the individual dishes, accom- panied with cabbage salad and carrots and peas. Rhubarb tarts with cheese completed the repast. Following the feast was a program composed of a dance by Yvonne Scheffer, music by Harold Shoverg and a presentation of Vergil's "Aeneid" by Lowell Dunlavy, Joe Gabriel, Genevieve White, Ruth Sheppard, Helen Kile, Richard Mc- Gahan, Virginia West, Marvel Rob- erts, Ernest Wogen, and Josephine Walsh.

They seem odd, these pic- tured expressions. The most incor- rigible of students is portrayed as a Sistine Madonnag an angelic face looks like Mona Lisag a handsome boy resembles Lon Chaney in his worst roleg and some sweet young things appear as Venus after a tough day at the tubs. In spite of all these unusually un- fortunate results in photography, we exchange our pictures proudly. Itfs an old Spanish custom without which a senior does not feel senior-ish. Do you know that when you are entering Mr. Lyman's science room, you are taking your life between your palms? You are. This is a timely warning, I hope. In case you have ventured in, I hope you have not been affectionately greeted by the class pet. In this case, the teacher's pet is hardly human, Qthey seldom arej. But this one isn't really. She's a snake,-a bullsnake, which makes it even worse. Her keepers assure you that she is per- fectly harmless and of a sweet un- affected, loving nature, quite un- spoiled by social successes. I wonder how her tea manners are? I imagine she bows, and balances a tea-cup in quite the approved manner. At any rate her scientific friends insist she is one of the most cherubic snakes they have ever had. They cannot understand why you shrink when they drape her over your arm. The absurdity in not loving little Hortense seems immense to her fond guardians. Now that the paper drive is over we can all heave a sigh and breathe a prayer. After all our scurrying around to assemble the bundles and other debris like proverbial busy bees, we found that the pile in our home room, of which we were so proud, was worth approximately l7Mc when weighed. And it seemed so-o-o-o COLOS- SAL! Come to think of it, our paper heap is like a. cone of cotton candy. You think you are getting al lot for your lucre, and when you get a mouthful, it dissolves into three small pink grains of sugar. Though I am taking a purely aca- demic course, I was struck by a de- sire, the other day, to peep into a shorthand notebook kept by one of my business-like girl friends. The contents noted were as follows: 14 telephone numbers. 1 drawing of home room teacher. l drawing of girl's head. 3 notes to girl next to her in study hall. 2 addresses. 6 memos to touch Dad's purse. 4 recipes. 23 drawings of desired new dresses. 2 choruses of popular song hits. 8 pages of shorthand. "I lead a grate-life," said the fur- nace. Page Om' Hundred Thirteen Page One Style . . .
