1930 THE SCRAPBOOK 1930 Published by the Senior Class Emerson High School Qary, Indiana Foreword Hear the clanking of the gates,— Spirit gates! All along throughout our life how their mystic rhythm grates! Like a nautilus of pearl As it seals each spiral swirl With a wall of living bone! So we seal our past fore’er With a spirit gate of air Firm as stone. Yet we hold it—ah, we hold it— In our memory behold it Ghostly grown. Midst the swinging, swinging, swinging, In that eerie monotone. Feel a glory in so keeping The shade as mem’ry’s loan. But watching o’er this human show. Guiding ev’ry ebb and flow Are the Fates; Atropos it is who sings As she swings, swings, swings, Swings A rhythm from the gates! And her hollow laughter grates With the banging of the gates, As she mocks us and berates; Keeping time, time, time. While our footsteps all beat time To the clanking of the gates,— Of the gates: Keeping time, time, time, While our heartbeats all keep time To the throbbing of the gates,— Of the gates, gates, gates,— Of the gates, gates, gates,— To the jangling of the gates; Keeping time, time, time. And she grates, grates, grates In a hollow, distant chime, To the creaking of the gates,— Of the gates, gates, gates,— To the clashing of the gates, Of the gates, gates, gates, gates,— Gates, gates, gates,— To the clanging shut and swinging wide of gates.

In the dingiest and most squalid hut on the street sits an Arab quite as dirty as his shop. Suddenly his face lights up—he thinks he sees a sale approaching. As the prospective customer, a tired, harassed looking man, draws nearer the Arab moves forward with an ingratiating smile and calls, “Mr. Spaulding”. Mr. Spaulding, for its none other than our long-suffering principal, stops astounded, “How did you know my name?” “That does not matter, I know it—that is enough. Now I have here a marvelous crystal through which one can look into the future” and he displayed before Mr. Spaulding’s astonished eyes a crystal ball. “Only a thousand dollars for this won¬ der—and now to illustrate its marvelous properties, I will permit you to look through it into the future of the class of 1930 which has just graduated from your Emerson High School.” Mr. Spaulding, applying his eye to the crystal suddenly beholds his office, oc¬ cupied, however, not by himself but by Bob Morris. In the hall he sees Isadore Zweig teacher of Physics and Helen Stickney, mathematics instructor. In the gyms labor Max Barmore and Helen Carter. Over in the primary building is Margaret Wilson teaching the kindergarten its ABC’s. Down at the station. Mayor Clarence Oliver greets Dorothy Holmes, star of the Chicago Civic Opera, while Sarabel Brownsten, star reporter of the Gary Post- Tribune, takes down notes in shorthand. The city church is the scene of a civic band practice where Nelson McCollum, prominent Chicago orchestra conductor, is helping Rosamond Martindale, band leader, to iron out the rough spots. A few of the discord makers are Henrietta Abben- seth. Rose Musin, Janette Eckersall, and Eleanor Wirt. In the Memorial Auditorium he sees Winifred Patch conducting the Post-Tribune cooking school, ably assisted by Olga Nikolich and Alice Johnson. He sees Phyllis Lazarz demonstrating “Thor” washing machines, Gertrude Predaina traveling from house to house selling encyclopedias, and Betty Holland selling lawn mowers in the People’s Hardware. At the Gary State Bank Margaret Kelley, cashier, is trying frantically to balance the books under the eagle eye of John Johnson, the president. Up at the Methodist Hospital, Dr. William Carter stands knife in hand ready to carve up some luckless victim. James Cumming, new owner of Miller’s Toggery, surveys his stock with pride while Dick Hansen, proprietor of Kobacher’s, dictates a letter to his secretary, Phyllis Nicholson. At the beach. Bill Klinger, handsome young life guard, surveys Kathleen Donovan, Virginia Raabe, and Katherine Leeper strolling along the sands. At the Palace Theater Don Henderson, star of the silver screen, croons his latest song hit to Arlene Draves while Manager Anthony Chase looks on. Next door at Walgreen’s Sammy Manalan jerks sodas for Dorothy Elster and Lois Burband. At station WJKS Josephine Roberts and Gladys Searles tune up while waiting for Helen Fuller, Gary’s Sunshine Girl, to finish warbling. At the same time Mar¬ garet Martindale, the announcer, takes a sip of water to clear her throat. Lastly as Mr. Spaulding’s gaze travels to the White House, he sees President Sidney Hyman orating upon the tariff and he knows all is well with the class of ’30. Did Mr. Spaulding buy that crystal? We wonder. Barbara Hadley. -4 34 )§•-- tv vr The Last Will and Testament It was with the greatest consternation and trepidation that we, the 1930 graduating class, viewed the termination of the school year, because we apprehended th e ineffi¬ ciency and lack of experience of the Juniors for sustaining the arduous task which the Seniors have so masterfully and sagaciously managed this past term. But with our unfailing generosity, we resolved that in order to help our successors uphold the usual prestige of the highest class as adroitly and with as much dexterity as we, we would bestow on these the things that made us so outstanding as Seniors. And so it is that we leave to you these personal bequests which have so unselfishly been given and which we hope will be as well received. PERSONAL BEQUESTS Isador Zweig bequeaths his easy going manner of speech to Waldemar Solf. Eleanor Wirt leaves her dramatic achievement to Fred Schuller who has already shown great promise in this line. Bob North bestows his attempt to dance gracefully on George Belesin. Anthony Chase very generously confers his position as chief movie operator to Kellogg Ball. Congratulations, Kellogg!! To Rosalind Warrum, Margaret Wilson leaves her unaffected disposition and good humor. Howard Bachmann and Stanley Danowski will their power and efficiency to shift scenery to Alvin Kahan and Orville Clegg. Barbara Hadley graciously presents her “blooming complexion” to Doris Rosen. Don Henderson, Janette Eckersall, and Edith Binns confer their titan hair on Florence Renn, Thelma Kewley, and Gertrude Predaina. From the Lazarz and Clark estate, is willed their demureness and overwhelming shyness to Lois Ryan and Gladys Lutz. Morris Finklestein condescendingly bequeaths his ability to chew gum to Mar¬ guerite Sotock. From the Kelley estate, Margaret kindly bestows her sunny (?) nature to Edna Krevitz. Sarabel Brownsten leaves her great success (?) as social leader of the school to Mary Grace Fleming. Good luck, Mary Grace!! With the greatest of pleasure, Bill Carter presents his ability to get on so well with Norma Page to whomever can conscientiously fill the requirements. To Helen Broslava is given Ruth Miller’s shyness and simplicity. We hope she uses it. Marjorie Hulse gladly wills her coyness to Gwynethe Winter. Rose Musin so generously bequeaths her well-known punctuality (?) to Jane Nossette whom we hope will appreciate it. Rosamond Martindale leaves her aptitude of eating everyone else’s lunch to whoever has ready fingers. It’s profitable business! Elsie Weber gives her typewriting success to Theresa Nelson with the condition that she never use the “hunt and poke” system. -4f 35 }§►- Last Will and Testament, Continued In order to keep the affections in the family. Bill Klinger leaves La Vina Dilling to his brother, Edward, until he can obtain a position. Emelyne Lakin confers her skill at stalling for time in the 2:15 Civics class to anyone who can successfully get by with it. Nelson McCollum bequeaths his aptitude of getting on with girls to Elmer Johnston. From the Franson estate, Lillian wills her naturally (?), golden (?), curly (?) locks to Louise Shepperd. Henrietta Abbenseth so kind bestows her helpful little chemistry note book on whoever can persuade it from her. Land knows! Anyone who has ability enough to get it certainly deserves it! Ruth Miller leaves her good habit of not using cosmetics to Norma Page. She needs it! Janette Eckersall gives her musical talent, namely, her clear flute-like (?) voice to Winona Gustafson. Howard Bachmann leaves his R. O. L C. uniform to Raymond Underwood hoping that he will have it made at least a little smaller. To Elizabeth Scheddell is bequeathed Kathleen Donovan’s innocent line. Sam Manalan and Russell Casey present their unexcelled studiousness to Eliza¬ beth Lieber and Minnie Nobles. Phyllis Nicholson leaves her sylph-like figure to Beatrice Acor whom we know is glad to receive it. Olga Nikolich, Helen Fuller, and Dick Hansen leave to Dorothy Beneke, Euphrone Blumstein, and Gus Jarabec their ability to yell long and vociferously at the head of the main stairway and to sell tickets as well as they did! We wish you luck! Jimmie Reid and Bob Morris bequeath their quiet and unassuming ways to Lloyd Beatty and Catherine Herbst. With the best of luck “Peg” Martindale leaves her well-known and well-worn “gag” to Sally Weeks. To Sophie Gerbic, Winfred Patch graciously presents her excellent blushing powers, in hopes that Sophie will find us for them. Sidney Hyman hands down his “never failing pep and go” to Mladen Sekulovich. Sidney is also looking for a successor for Jennie. Any offers? The girls of the 11:15 lunch hour benignantly bequeath their aptitude at getting the largest and most luscious pieces of hot dutch-apple cake to the next 11:15 group. To this legal document, our last will and testament, affirming to its validity, we, the class of 1930, subscribe our name and affix the official seal of Emerson school. ( Signed ) The Class of 1930.

Clifford Underwood, with Margaret Devlin as his assistant, was chosen to lead the hopeful Juniors to another victory. Marion Dinsmore kept the score, while Guy Fisher and Winona Gustafson took care of the gate receipts. Miss Daniel, a sympathetic member of the “Faculty Eleven”, acted as coach when she was not busy carrying the ball for her own team. Several times, especially in February and June, the “Faculty Eleven” threatened the Junior goal line with a crushing “Examination Rush”, but the Juniors recovered the ball both times within a few inches of their own goal and with two miraculous “Final Passes” succeeded in planting the pigskin on the Seniorhood side of the Faculty goal. Early in the game, the Juniors furnished themselves with rings in order to distinguish themselves from their opponents and the spectators. While the opposing side was taking time out, after a particularly sur¬ prising “Final Pass”, the Juniors amused themselves with a blood-curdling presentation of “Seven Keys to Baldpate.” To raise additional funds for the anticipated “Victory Ball”, the Juniors sold many tickets for the Benefit Show. And then in the moment of victory, the Prom was held while the team members and their guests drowned their cares in the dazzling splendor of the ballroom. This ended the third quarter, and the Juniors withdrew from the field to rest for the next quarter when they will resume the struggle as Seniors. Score: Class of’31.18 Faculty. 0 Third Quarter. Waldemar Solf -Hg{ 42 }• - “ " ■ §{ 44 )§►•- Sophomore Class History The Sophomore Class of ’32 has been sponsored by Miss Hazel Harrison throughout the Freshman and Sophomore years. Under Miss Harrison’s sponsorship the Freshman Class of ’32 was al¬ lowed two distinct privileges. First was a successful Hallowe’en Party given in the girls’ lower gym, and second was a dinner party held in the Emerson Cafeteria and ended by a motion picture in the Emerson Auditorium. The officers of the Freshman Class were: President, Richard Anderson; Vice-President, Willard Anderson; Secretary, Virginia Swayne; Girls’ Treas¬ urer, Eileen McAllister; Boys’ Treasurer, Alex Venturella. The Sophomore Class started its year with the Sophomore Plays which were “Kings in Nomania” and “The Playgoers”. They were a great success under the direction of Miss Margaret D. Paul. The next social event was the Sophomore Hop given on Monday evening, January 27, 1930. It was led by the class president Alex Venturella. Enter¬ tainment was furnished for Juniors, Seniors, and alumni as well as for the members of the class. The officers of the class are: President, Alex Venturella; Vice-President, Loma Covalt; Secretary, Walter Eckersall; Girls’ Treasurer, Dorothy Rich¬ ardson; Boys’ Treasurer, Edward Steele. The Sophomores have never before been as active in affairs of the school as they have this year. There has been Maurice Clemens, Emerson cheer leader; Morris Soloman, swimmer; Jane Nossette and Rose Fox accom¬ panists; Robert Gray, David Colosimo, and Darry Holt, leading characters in the school opera and members of the National Chorus; and Gerald Vowell, Norman Sevenson, Thomas Howell, Betty Sabo, Julia Berger and many others who have taken part in athletics. The class is rapidly becoming Juniors with the hopes of another suc¬ cessful year. Rose Fox. 45 f - Snow A snow-white velvety blanket, Stuffed with fluffy down. Envelops the house tops and steeples.

All ports and vessels sent in their representatives, and on the following day, September 4, the ship embarked . Captain Lloyd Hardt, first mate Hyman Manalan, purser Raymond Coff¬ man, and assistant purser, Lucille McAllister, were elected amid October gales. As the ship toured on, helmsmen were chosen, those being LaNae Hallan- der and Raymond Underwood. Drill was held monthly at 1:30 in the ship’s assembly room where Ad¬ miral Spaulding and Commander Adele Tappan presided. Scholars of the boat vied with ship “Whiting”, “Hammond”, and “East Chicago”; musicians and poets sang their tunes in competition to others; ath¬ letes indulged in deck sports and competed with other ships. After cruising the various seas, and sustaining numerous gales, the bark entered Sophomore Harbor and tars were given shore leave.

MAJOR SPORTS -» tak ' l ART ROLFE CHARLES BAER RALPH BRASAEMLE Football Track Class Basketball Swimming Junior High Activities Grade School Activities Basketball Baseball Class Baseball Tennis Our Coaches After receiving his degree at the University of Illinois as instructor of physical education in June, 1929, Coach Charles Baer came to the Emerson School last September as a member of the coaches’ staff. Besides being in charge of all junior high and grade school athletics. Coach Baer coaches the varsity swimming team. FOOTBALL SQUAD First Row: Sotock, Bleicher, Worth, McGuire, Captain Manalan, L. Melzer, Anderson, Kahan, Thompson. Second Row: Coach Rolfe, Wulfing, Cook, Podunavac, B. Melzer, P. Wickersham, Hunter, Kaszynski, Richardson. Third Row: Golkowski, Ricard, Morris, Schralli, W. Swartzell, Hopkins, Erdheim, B. Swart- zell, R. Wickersham, Klinedorf. Football LINDBLOOM GAME Trotting out a practically new team for the opening game of the season against the strong Lindbloom team of Chicago did not give much hope of victory, but a surprise was pulled as Coach Rolfe’s “green” team held the Chicago outfit scoreless for almost the whole game and in the meantime had helped themselves to a 6-0 lead. Victory seemed to be in our hands but a last minute misfortune turned the tide and Lindbloom went over for a touchdown and for the extra point which won the game for them. Emerson was hit harder by the injury of our captain “Sammy” Manalan in the first half of the game, than by dropping the hard-fought battle on the gridiron. The weak points of our team showed up and so Coach Rolfe set to work to build them up. MISHAWAKA GAME The highly touted Mishawaka team proved to be a “flop” when the Golden Tornado hit them on Mishawaka’s home field. The loss of Captain Manalan handicapped the Gold and Gray a trifle but for the most part he was not needed. “Toddy” Anderson did some “slick” running to wake up to the fact that he was in the game. In spite of Emerson’s rigid defense, Mishawaka did succeed in threatening our goal line several times. -H8{ 53 HAMMOND GAME The Golden Tornado seemed to have regained its lost “pep and go” as well as its captain, “Sammy” Manalan, in the Hammond game. Did the boys go into the game with the old fighting spirit? Ask Hammond. They were instantly stopped in their tracks, so to say and were not allowed a chance to score. Captain “Sammy” took his turn in showing the boys how to throw a line forty yards at a time, and it was our “Sammy” who went over the goal for a touchdown and a deserved victory. FROEBEL GAME The enemy of enemies—Froebel. Another last minute streak of luck for the opponents and another victory lost to us. Froebel scored first, but the Gold and Gray came back and scored on the opponents with a lead at the half of 7-6. The second half was a “nip and tuck” affair until the last few minutes, after Captain Manalan was injured and removed from the game, Lady-luck smiled on Froebel and gave them a victory of 13-7. MOOSEHEART GAME Although outclassed by the strong Moosehart team, the boys nevertheless went into the game with some fighting and hard tackling that had been witnessed in the two previous games. The boys were game until the end and should be complimented on their “never say die” spirit which they plainly showed during the entire game. MICHIGAN CITY GAME Another advertised team that proved to be “meat” for Emerson was Michigan City. Accord¬ ing to the spectacular demonstrations of football shown in the previous games of the season it seems that we have a “galloping ghost” in our midst in the person of “Toddy” Anderson. The latter showed the Michigan City boys how to run past the chalk lines and account for the yardage every time he took the ball down the field. Although our opponents scored 13 points on us, the boys made the highest score, 32, that any Emerson team had made under Coach Rolfe. SOUTH BEND GAME Tables turned in the South Bend game when Lady-luck deserted Emerson and favored our opponents. The first to score were the Benders who failed to make the extra point. Then Emerson dug in their toes and scored on their opponents and also making the extra point. Unfortunately the Benders, not approving of the score 7-6, started on another march and made the last touchdown making the final score 13-7. The old pep and fighting spirit was missing in this game; it was an “off” day as it is known in the sport world. ' ■ ..

Opposing such a team was no easy task as could be readily seen, but the old scrappy Rolfemen went “up and at ’em” during the whole game. CAMPION GAME To show his appreciation for the hard work the team turned in for him. Coach Rolfe scheduled a post-season game with Campion Academy in Wisconsin. Coach Rolfe played the boys who would be back with him the following season, but received a final defeat in the last half. So the season closed unsuccessfully when judging the victories and defeats and successfully when looking from the standpoint of how the games were played. -4 55 First Rout: Pleska, Barmore, Vowell, Joyce, Linne, Aley, Best, Sekulovich. Second Row: Coach Brasaemle, Collette, Belesin, Saroff, Topologus, Miscevich, Taus, Kane, Howell, Obradovich, Daoust, Glenn. Third Row: Calloway, Beers, Berg, Castellani, Sears, Woolridge, Groseic, Anderson. Basketball Squad Although greatly weakened by the loss of a great many stars of last year’s squad, Coach Brasaemle found some new material which would help fill up the shoes of those he had lost. After forming a machine that would bring disaster to any team, Coach Brasaemle lost three valuable men, among them Captain McGuire, through scholastic difficulties. With a few bad breaks and last minute baskets which meant lost games for Emerson the season turned out to be far more out of the way than was expected. Fortunately Coach Brasaemle will lose only William Carter and Max Barmore through graduation. Season’ ' s Games Emerson .

Many boys tried out from whom Robert Nicholich and Darry Holt were chosen to com¬ bine with Bradley Adams and Sidney Hyman, the only members left from last year. With this line up the team beat Washington of East Chicago and Horace Mann twice. In their encounter with Roosevelt of East Chicago they also came out victorious.

Although handicapped by having only three letter men from last year’s team, Coach Baer gathered some prosperous-looking material to fill up the gaps. The remaining three lettermen were Captain William Carr, Oliver Olson, and Harry Miller.

Any girl who makes one major team, receiving one hundred points, may become a member. The major sports are hockey, soccer, basketball, swimming, track, base¬ ball, and tennis, and in addition to these a girl is eligible after making two minor teams for which she receives fifty points each. After a member has five hundred points she may have the pin of the association, and having made one thousand points is eligible to receive the Emerson Girls’ Ath¬ letic Association monogram which may only be worn on the standard sweater. The association has an annual banquet held in the latter part of May. 66 }§•— -4 69 )■ - Girls’ Athletic Teams HOCKEY Seniors Juniors Sophomores Freshmen 0. Morris M. Triplett D. Richardson L.

Under the direction of Mr. H. S. Warren and C. V. Hendrickson the Boys’ Concert Band, the Regimental Band, and the Symphony Orchestra won first place at the district contest. The Girls’ Band won second place but will participate in the state contest at Elkhart, Indiana. Among the soloists who ranked at the district contest were: Elizabeth Scheddell, first place, violin; Frances Monfort, first place, cello; and Rosa¬ mond Martindale, second place, clarinet. Besides playing at all athletic games, school activities, concerts, the bands and orchestra participated in many civic functions. 81 R. O. T. C. The Unit of the Reserve Officers Training Corp of Emerson High School was established in 1919. Its purpose of a dual nature, to develop the cadets mentally and physically. Military training is an invaluable factor in a boy’s education, not that it produces soldiers for in most cases it serves to gratify every boy’s inborn desire to be a soldier, but under military training boys acquire habits of cleanliness, neatness, order and initiative that go with them through the “Battle of Life”. The drill is a secondary part of military training, but it is very important, as it causes all of the cadets to take exercises in a most healthful form. It not only promotes physical strength and development, but it also encourages the cadet to strive to excel, for in military service merit alone wins the honors. The cadet officers have a valuable opportunity to cultivate discretion, tact, judgment and the opportunity to command others. This training in command and control of men is of incalculable value to a boy in this age of great enterprises, when the ability to command men is the key to success. It is the best system of training to develop the executive ability of a boy. It induces pride in dress and appearance, and in personal conduct and deport¬ ment; it teaches the importance of self-reliance, in order that responsibilities may be met with credit and success; it assists nature in physical development, and brings with it manliness of figure and carriage; it frowns on anything that is low, dishonorable, or unmanly. We believe that military training so far from interferring with the other duties of a student, serves rather to inculcate these traits and virtues which are necessary to the foundation of a well rounded, well educated man. - ■€■{ 85 Instructors: Captain H.

Back to the temple of Minerva, and if the Fates are willing, we may learn something. IV. The sedate Seniors with due solemnity and under favorable auspices select their officers. VI. Sam Manalan, protege of Apollo, is elected Football Captain amidst the rousing cheers of the first Mass Meet¬ ing. X. The jolly Juniors jovially jerk their officers into office. XI. We Spartan women must rally to the cause. The Yelling Yodlers are reor¬ ganized with Peggy as our president. XV. Our monitor force seems to have the eyes of Argus and the hands of Briar- eus when it comes to writing notices. OCTOBER VIII. A gala event—the Pageant—All the Olympian hosts are present—gods, muses, and driads. XV. The Seniors challenge the gods to a contest of pulchritude and flock down to the Dunes Art Studio. XXII. Aspirants for places in “Spice” like the souls sent to the underworld in the days of old appear before those well- known judges: Rhadamanthus, Minos, and Adeacus. XXVI. Hammond, our ancient rival, lies de¬ feated on the field of battle. Sammy found the Achilles heel of the team and made the one and only touchdown. NOVEMBER II. Trying to steer a straight course to victory, we passed too near Scylla and allowed Horace Mann to snatch the victory from us. V. The auspices, deceiving things, are taken and found favorable, so the elec¬ tions for the Board of Control are held. VIII. The Band celebrates with a regular Sat¬ urnalia. IX. Froebel, our Charybdis, whirls us down to defeat, and our last hope of victory is wrecked. XX. The Muses mount the winged horse, Pegasus, and dash onto -the Memorial Auditorium stage to give the eighth anual “spice and Variety” show. XXVI. Perhaps, if our football heroes had known more about the ancient Roman banquets, they might have eaten more! We wonder. XXVIII-XXI. We offer thanks to the gods, both known and unknown, for our well deserved and much needed vacation. DECEMBER III. The Band Concert — Were both Pan and Apollo present? We thought so. XV. Senior pictures are out. Paris would have great difficulty in bestowing the golden apple. XVII. Thais reigns supreme in the Sopho¬ more play. XVII. Aeolus with his snow laden winds ushers in our Christmas vacation two days before the schedule. JANUARIUS IX. What gods have the social committee offended that the novelty dance is again postponed? XX. Beginning tonight we pledge ourselves to burn midnight oil at the altar of Minerva for three successive nights. XXIV. With the aid of Vulcan, we, the au¬ dience, finally find “The Seventh Key to Baldpate” at the Junior play. —«§{ 89 - n -Vi IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII XXVII. Since King Winter rules at the Sopho¬ more dance. it is evident that Ceres is grieving Persephone’s absence. XXX. The sweet tones from the Symphony Orchestra, at their first concert, pro¬ claim the presence of Orpheus. XXXI. The Fates (the teachers) decide our destiny. The semester closes. FEBRUARIUS III. Our new magistrates take their oath of office. VII. Our Band putting aside their instru¬ ments, and wooing Terpsichore for the evening, hold their annual dance. XIV. VICTORIA! East Chicago goes under the yoke! As a result, tonsorial artists are busy on our boys. All the gods are smiling! Even the social committee has won their favor and is giving the long waited novelty dance. MARIUS XIII. When Greek meets Greek—The Hearst Trophy Match is held here. XV. Beware the Ides of March!! XVII. Mars gives way to the lighter moods, and our warriors enterlain with their annual dance. APRILIUS I. Today, a regular Pandora’s box, was hardly one on which to indulge in the waters of Lethe. MAIS X. With due ceremony, the gods and Seniors accepted the Juniors’ kind in¬ vitation and attend the Prom, which is worthy of them. JUNIUS VI. Winning their usual laurels, the Sen¬ iors present their annual play this eve¬ ning. XVI. The Lofty Seniors soon to graduate into bigger things (?) held their last dance under the aegis of the school. XIX. The end of our triumphal march down the Appian way is reached. So Janus reviews the year.

Do you make biscuits from a recipe or a pattern?” “Tact”, said the lecturer, “is essential to good entertaining. I once dined at a house where the hostess had no tact.
