June ..... 1943
In these uncertain days of war and chaos many loved ones and friends are leaving
us to go to the fronts of battle and industry. A few months ago our good friend and
principal was one of these to leave. He left us to take an important position with the
Red Cross. He has served Emerson ,long and well. First as a teacher, then as an
administrator, Emersonians, throughout the years, have found him a friend and helpful
adviser. The students and faculty of Emerson wish him much happiness and success in
his new work. The Blue Dart Staff hopes that this annual will help to keep the happy
days at Emerson living in his memory. In grateful appreciation of his sincere interest,
understanding, and guidance, we dedicate the 1943 Blue Dart to Bertram A. Betts, our
friend and principal.

FAREWELL TO EMERSON ....
It is with mingled feelings that I say Farewell to Emerson Junior
High School. The years that I have spent here have been the happiest
and most inspiring years of my life, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the
splendid cooperation and enthusiasm of both the Faculty and the
Student Body. It has been this spirit that has made the successes and
even the failures seem worthwhile.
I take with me many happy memories of Emerson and the friendly
associations here. Through the years I will watch with interest your
activities and achievements, knowing that the high ideals of the Blue
and White will always be maintained.
My very best wishes for your continued success and happiness.

MESSAGE TO SENIORS
The time of parting has come and we say farewell to the class of 1943. Yours is a time of wide and
varied opportunities. In each of you is something that can help to meet this day's needs. May you
recognize it, and use it freely to strengthen the cause for which we fight. As steel is tempered to make
finer weapons may you be tempered to greatest usefulness. May your opinions broaden into balanced
judgment, your independence be moulded into wisdom, and your bright remarks mellow into true humor,
but may your gay spirit endure forever to make glad the lives of others as you have made us glad.
A RUTH P. TANGEMAN, Acting Principal
Under the capable leadership of this year's faculty, the students of Emerson have learned how to
become better citizens, also how to be good leaders in the world of tomorrow in which we will have a
We of Emerson were very sorry to lose Mr. Betts, but we understand he was needed for more im-
portant work. I-Ie is an executive in the Red Cross. We cheerfully welcomed Mrs. Tangeman, who has
taken over his position, and Mr. McPherson, who left some of his classes to be our Vice Principal. We
realize this is especially hard for them, as they both have work outside these new positions. We wish to
thank the office force for their splendid cooperation. Helping Mrs. Shepard were Mrs. Jewell, who left
during the year, and Mrs. Glenn, who took her place.
We were very sorry to see some of our teachers leave us, but we all welcome our new teachers. Mr.
Rentchler, who was needed by Uncle Sam, was replaced by Mr. Bauer. Miss Pierson at the latter part of

During this past year of 1942 and 1943 the graduating class of Emerson has
been putting forth its best effort in bringing about an immediate victory by help-
ing buy several thousand dollars worth of war bonds and stamps, and by bringing
in several tons of scrap metal. The seniors also made a good showing in their con-
tributions to the Red Cross and March of Dimes drives.
The school was presented with a lovely gift from the graduating class. Among
the many very enjoyable events of the year were the P.T.A. dances and the Tenth
Grade Noon dances which were in the capable hands of Miss Fitch and Mr. Guhin.
Under the fine direction of Miss Fitch, Miss Pierson, Mr. Mitchell, and Mr.
McPherson, Emerson is having a fine graduating class. Their studies and ex-
periences at Emerson have prepared them to go forward "On to Victory."

BL UE DART
One of the most active groups in the school was the Blue Dart Staff. While other groups and clubs
have programs and parties, the staff is busy collecting and preparing material for your school annual.
Scot Munro acted as Editor, XVynn Farr as Assistant Editor and Secretary, and Sanford Newton asv
Business Manager. Betty Musgrove, Elaine Else, Tom Scudder, Don Meiklejohn, and Robert Wrillace all
performed their duties of division chairmen well. Special mention is due Ed Johnson for his splendid
cooperation and many hours of untiring effort. The whole group was under the careful supervision of
The Philosopher staff is made up of students from the eighth, ninth, and tenth
grades. It is a regular class. Not only does it please the school with its newsy paper,
but it docs creative writing as well. The staff was under the splendid leadership of Miss
Griggs. Congratulations to its members for making the school year a more pleasant
and interesting one.

TRAFFIC SQUAD I
The traflic squad is made up of dependable ninth and tenth grade students. A new
squad is chosen each semester. Their duty this year was to enforce the following rules
for safety as well as to preserve the democratic spirit: keep moving, keep in the right
traffic lane, walk and do it quietly, take but one step at a time on the stairs, talk quietly
be courteous to all, obey and respect traffic officers and do not talk to traflic officers
while they are on duty. Joe Martin, Boys' Vice President of the student body, had the
responsibility of organizing and supervising both squads. Mr. McPherson and Mr
Stanton were the faculty advisers.

The students who really keep our school going, helping everything to be on
schedule, are those who help in the office. There is no rest for them. They run errands
to all parts of the building, collect and mark the attendance slips and make themselves
useful in many ways. This is good experience and is considered valuable in an educa-
tional way. Ninth and tenth grade students with high marks in their school work are
qualified for this volunteer service.
This is a group of hard workers, which Emerson could not do without. Their duty
is to help other students find the books they want. They volunteer their services, their
only pay being the experience. We want to thank each and every librarian for his
cheerful and valuable work.

The tenth grade Girl Reserves is one of the favorite organizations of the girls. The
highlights this year included: potluck suppers, swims, and dances. The girls were under
the leadership of Dorothy Coon, the adviser, and Bettie May, president.
The ninth grade Girl Reserves had a very enjoyable year. The girls enjoyed send-
ing letters, food, and clothing to English orphans. Their lender, Miss Gustafson, and
their president, Claire Quire, worked untiringly to fill this year's program with worth-
while experiences for the group.

outstanding events was an assembly by Jeffery Morgan.
The Hi-Y had its yearly shoe shine and also sponsored a Courtesy Week.
The I-Ii-Y and Boys' League got together and really put over the Boxing Ex-
travaganza. Two of the most entertaining parties were the Mothers' and Fathers' nights.
A second chapter of Hi-Y was organized here in Emerson this year under the
direction of Mr. Mitchell. The name recalls the efforts of western pioneers to clean up
their government. This group of fellows cooperating with the First Chapter should
prove a material force for better government of Emerson in days to come.
The leaders of this new chapter were: President, Clifford Nicholsg Secretary, Loran

STUDENT CO URT
The student court was organized this year to allow opportunity for student control
of safety violations. The practice of following regular court procedure was closely
adhered to. The members of the court had the opportunity to visit both the Superior
and the Justice Courts during the year and patterned their procedure according to the
information received there. This activity was skillfully supervised by Mr. Dellenbach.
SPANISH CL UB
Those eligible for becoming members of the Spanish Club are Spanish students
whose grades permit them to join. Again this year we had a large group. The leaders
of this year's organization were Miss Griggs and Miss Palomares. The members enjoyed
parties, dinners, excursions, movies, and many other interesting and entertaining

SCRAP DRI VE
One of the main activities in the "On to Victory" program this year was the scrap metal and rubber
drive, The students were divided into groups and canvassed their assigned territories. There were no
"slackers" among the Emerson students. This was shown by the almost 66 tons of salvage collected. We
received the grand total of 5350.45 which was used in the war effort. This was ll big step in the "On
The band has given several concerts including the band concert in the C. Auditorium, concerts at
the Victory House, Parades, and noon concerts at Emerson. The band, under the direction of Mrs.
Simpson, has done a wonderful job this year.
Emerson really enjoys listening to the band. They have had plenty of discouragements, but they
still carry on. We really appreciate you, band, and we hope you continue with better years in the future.

The store crew this year consisted of four outstanding characters who always gave
you service with a smile.
Because of the war you could not always have the things you wanted but the store
was run in the same efficient manner as it had been in the past.
The members of the store crew were: Stan Adams, Sanford Newton, Ralph Arkle,

STAGE and COSTUME CREW
The members of the Stage Crew have done a grand job this year under the direction
of Miss Fitch and Mrs. Tangeman. They have aided with stage properties, pulled the
curtains, managed the lights, and cleaned the stage for many programs and plays.
Among their greatest contributions was the cleaning out of the costume room and the
store room on the bridge. Things have been straightened up so that they can be found,
and a system of checking out costumes and properties was inaugurated.
ASSEMBL Y COMMITTEE
During the year we have
enjoyed many entertaining
and educational assemblies.
Under Mr. McPherson's
guidance, the committee,
with the cooperation of
the Student Council, has
scheduled programs and
movies which have been
pleasing and worthwhile to
our student body. Some
of the best programs
scheduled had to be can-

make a Sophomore team. The team showed lots of fight and spirit and they won all but one C. B. L. game.

ship. The team improved rapidly toward thc end of the season, especially Dale Androus, who
looked very good in the last games.
Starting off very well, the C Basketball team won their first two games with Fremont
and then failed to win another game. The team was coached by Mr. Brownson and showed
excellent ball handling but lacked the Hnal punch to win. Two outstanding players on the
team were Don Jones and Don Miner. -

Tanner. The guards were composed of Van Diest, Biddle and Colton.
This year's tennis team consisted mostly of tenth graders. The
members really knew the game and played it well. Miss Houston was
the instructor and spent several hours each week training the players.
Emerson had matches with the near by schools, and came out on top
a good part of the time.

Our team this year was in some ways one of the surprises of the season. Considered at first only fair,
it developed remarkably. Witli Gunther starring in the hundred and two-twenty-yard dashes, we
romped through a practically undefeated season. Our strong side was in the dashes, with Gunther in
the short dashes, the Arkle brothers in the low hurdles, and Keckley and Bowe in the three-thirty.
Other men who won letters were Bill Zietz, who ran the distances in snappy fashion, and Loran
Garrett who did good work in the shot put.
Many others came out and trained hard, but did not win enough points to get letters. They deserve
praise, however, for their share in upholding the honor of the school in track.

the art of self-defense, including how to get up early in the morning and that
it doesn't do any good to try to dodge the draft. This year the Boxing Club

into shape for their Boxing Show.

A friend who is one of our best "teachers" is Mrs. Browne, who manages the big Emerson Cafeteria.
She not only serves us a well balanced diet in the form of tasty dishes, but she has a happy smile and a
pleasant word for everyone, no matter how tired or hurried she may be. She has great patience with her
