Text from Pages 1 - 20 of the 1914 volume:

Graduation. (Written by Class Poet, Frank Turney.) You graduated once you know, About four years ago today; It ' s funny — but, remember now How proud you were to say You were coming to Manual? And how, when in the fall you came Down here to Training School, Instead of feeling proud and glad You felt just like a fool — Cause all the upper classmen When you asked them where to go — Would laugh, then tell you wrong? And when you ' d walked a mile or so, You ' d find they ' d lied — and then a lump Within your throat would swell, Cause, well, you knew, that you were lost Here in Old Manual. In June again you ' ll graduate — Out in the world you ' ll go, But a harder time you ' ll have by far — Than you had four years ago When you first came to Manual. Tor then, t ' was but a day or so Until you knew just what to do. Eut the battles of life rage on each day In the fight twixt the world and you. So into each day put the best that you have, Be reliable — true — and you shall, On the day when Success smiles down, upon you, Do honor to Manual.

Oh the lucky man, who ' ll find his mate In the class of nineteen six plus eight; Their career has nearly just begun In nineteen fifteen minus one. Dame Fortune awaits them at the door — Nineteen twelve plus six minus four; There ' s nothing on earth they will not fix, Wonderful class of eight plus six! They ' ll beat all things on earth alive, Nineteen nineteen minus five; Then in eternity they will shine This good old class of five plus nine. — Wm. Lloyd Sloan. The formal presentation of the Jan- uary, ' 14, and June, ' 14, class gift to the school took place in the audito- rium the 7th and 8th periods, Tuesday, June 2. The members of both of these classes were present. The program for the afternoon was opened with a song by Cassie Liebers. After this, members of Miss Perkin ' s Expression class told the story, " The Courage cf the Commonplace. " Those partici- pating were Louise Jenny, Carry Henry, Abe Zimmerman, Leathel Rosenbarger, Curtis Carll, Julia Mil- ler, Eva Wit, Wallace Krieg and Elsa Dongus. This was followed by a piano solo by Thomas Hansen and a reel on the new picture machine. During this latter performance Donald Krull and Brace Loomis played the piano. Maurice Thornton, president of the June class formally presented the ma- chine to the school and Mr. Stuart ac- cepted the gift in the name of the school. A cornet solo by Chas. Abel followed by class yells closed the pro- gram. WEBER G. de VORE ROBERT G. BARNHILL PRINCIPAL STUART HENRY H. BLATTMAN ELEANOR P. WHEELER % }t Managers of tlje Booster Jlcotrate tl)is ssite to (0«r |Jriuripal, jMr. tuart THE BOOSTER MISS ARDA KNOX, Class Sponsor Will of the June Class of 1914. (By Clara Eedig.) We, the June class of 1914 of Man- ual Training High School, of the city oflndianapolis, and State of Indiana, being of sound mind, memory and un- derstanding hereby revoke all former wills and declare the following our larv will and testament. First: We direct that all our just debts and funeral expenses be paid by the January ' 15 class as soon after our departure as possible. Second: To the School (M. T. H. S.) we bequeath $1,000,000 for buying up the ground around the school in order that a playground may be built in which there shall be a ball dia- mond, tennis courts, polo ground, and all other amusements according to the wishes of the students. Third: We beque ath the remains of Ralph Agnew ' s moustache to any fellow in the next class who intends to raise one before the year is over. We think that the two put together ought to bring forth one that could easily be seen without the aid of a microscope. Fourth: Frank Turney ' s goggles we bequeath to the Mecca Studio to use as skylights. Fifth: To George Davis, president of the next class, we will Frank Henry ' s ability to speak, with the thought that Davis may need the ex- tra help in his speeches next year. Sixth: To the school we give $300 in order that a new floor may be made between the shops and the of- fice since the old one is nearly worn out by the frequent trips of Mr. Dan- forth to the office. Seventh: To Sue Flick of the next class we bequeath with loving memo- ries Nina Celia Brigham ' s title of " Tiny. " Eighth: We direct that Mr. Stark find a person suitable to bear Mahrea Cramer ' s distinguished title of " Santa Mahrea Cramer, 1 Artiste. " Ninth: The money which the school appropriated for Roland Schmedel ' s tardy slips we give with pleasure to the art department in or- der that a more convenient board rack may be purchased. Tenth: Eliza Blair ' s Psyche we be- queath to any girl in the school who has not enough hair to make one of the new style " tango puffs. " Eleventh: " Skeet " Thornton ' s dancing pumps, we give to Lowell Cash, a January ' 15 senior, hoping that he will make as good use of them as " Skeet " has. Twelfth: To " Shorty " Sinclair we bequeath Dorland Henderson ' s steam so that in the next track meet Shorty will not get short-winded. Thirteenth: We give Tillman Peters Fliegenschmidt ' s gracefulness to any one . who intends to be the court jester for the next class. Fourteenth: Vincent P. King ' s Helene Sawyer glide we will to the January 1915 class to be presented as one of the most precious, original cre- ations of the June ' 14 class. Fifteenth: We give Donald KruH ' s acrobatic agility and megaphonic voice to his successor, whoever he may be. Sixteenth: The Pike boys ' generos- ity in measuring ice cream, we give to their successors in order that the popularity of ice cream may be kept up. Seventeenth: We direct that Rob- ert Stempfel ' s picture be enlarged and hung in a prominent place because we do not want our great leader in the great and merciless war against the fly, to be forgotten. THE BOOSTER Eighteenth: To John McDaniels Von Ammerman we bequeath $100,- 000 so that he may be educated ac- cording to the brilliant career already mapped out for him. Nineteenth: To Mr. Joseph Rose- well Hawley Moore, we bequeath one blackberry pie so that he will not starve after our departure. Twentieth: To Mr. Montani, we give $500 to build a garage in which to house his Ford during school hours. Twenty-first: To our teachers we bequeath our sincerest thanks for the great pains they have taken to impart their knowledge to us. Twenty-second: To the January ' 15 class we give our best wishes for a jolly good time next year. Twenty-third: Our sponsor we leave to the next June class on condi- tion that they cherish and guard her for she cannot be duplicated any- where. We appoint Mr. Milo H. Stuart ex- ecutor of this, our last will and testa- ment. In witness whereof, we have here- unto subscribed our name this third day of June in the year of our Lord 1914. (Signed) Maurice E. Thornton, President. Effie M. Gaunt, Vice-president. Nina C. Brigham, Secretary. John Francis Trost, Treasurer. Quite True. When August days are rolling by And September ' s coming nigh, The High School " kids " all stop and cry, " How vacation whizzes by! " And when November comes around, And snow has covered all the ground, With snowballs ?!ways on the go, They say, " Vacation comes so slow! " But when Commencement comes at last, And all the Seniors they have passed. They wonder why, by all that ' s queer, The old school building seems so dear. — Thos. Earl Zinkan. MAURICE E. THORNTON President of June Class Calendar of June ' 14 Class. (By Nina Brigham.) Oct. 7, 1913 — Today our class be- came a " classy " class, and received the name of June ' 14, together with " Skeet " Thornton for president. Not a bad beginning. October 19 — The Pikes have at last distinguished themselves. While burning the midnight oil last night, Albert got into such close proximity with his student lamp, that a neat lit- tle patch of freckles hps appeared on his left temple. Oh! yes, and Charles parted his hair on the right side to- day while Albert parted his in the middle. We only hope they have not quarreled because Charles wanted to wear a pink tie and Albert an olive green. ' November 14 — Extra! This is this class ' s red letter day! Roland Schme- del got to school on time, and Elmer Iverson didn ' t have any occasion to put his foot down once on the green carpet, today! At this rate, we will soon be prepared to hear that Ralph Agnew is going to cut off his mous- tache. Jan. 26-Feb. 2 — This week marked a hurry-scurrying one for June sen- THE BOOSTER iors. Strange actions were noted among them as, whenever they heard a certain voice or a certain step or saw a certain form, these same stately (?) and dignified (again " ? " ) seniors slipped wild-eyed into some cloak- room or behind some door, or around the corner of the corridor, at the same time clutching their purses with a fierce and unrelenting grasp. And what and who was the cause of this? Why none more or less than a mild and meek blue-eyed boy of an appar- ently unferocious type, bearing the name of John Trost but who is our treasurer and a most conscientious one, trying to perform his allotted duties by collecting class dues up to the whole sum of five cents! The Most Memorable Day in Feb- ruary! Down in the gym today, we beheld our wonderful athletic star, Ellis Baker, exert all of his strength at a most opportune time, and make a basket in the ball game! Instead of fainting dead away after this terrific throw, our star hero stalked majesti- cally down the middle of the floor without ever having to wipe the beads of perspiration from his noble brow. We only hope there ' ll be no serious after effects. March 10 — Today we rejoiced very much to hear that " L Artiste " of our class had got down to business on a really artistic piece of leather work for the cover of her class book. March 23 — On this date, it was done. And on this date were enrolled six charter members, Helen Hickey, Abe Zimmerman, Clara Ledig, Lucy King, Curtis Carl and Clare McGin- nis, and beyond these six there will be no further members. A comman bond keeps them together and be- cause of this bond, and his superior years, Mr. Dale Kootz loses the job. They ' ve organized a Heredity Club. April 21— Today, Karll Von Am- merman made the formal announce- ment that he has engaged Margaret McRoberts as nurse for the young John McDaniels Von Ammerman un- til that important personage who vies with Don Krull as yell leader, is ready to take care of himself. April 29 — What a glorious, proud April day for us with Presidents Thornton and Davis on the platform, our budding poet Frank Turnev, our most honored Principal M. H. Stuart, and last, but not least, Mr. J. G. Colli- cott who made his first speech here and left us, we hope, for the bet- ter. We felt from his talk that our high school course had not been, could not be wasted. Mr. Stuart made a comment on our motto which should have stirred the very roots of our ivy plant to action. " Skeet ' s " speech promises great things for him — the same for President Davis. About our poet laureate and his lit- tle " pome " let it be said, he did his best and succeeded even beyond his own expectations, though he ' s too modest to say much. April 30— Our boys gave their min- strel show today, and the worst came — 3 et did it? The girls must admit that if they accepted T. Peter Flie- genschmidt ' s exhibition of gymnas- tics as an example of the graceful art that the boys were capable of, that they were beaten flatter than T. Pe- ter ' s hat after T. Peter had alighted on it. May 1 — A council was held today in Room 10 after school, to determine what the matter was with " Pete " Straub ' s and Ralph Agnew ' s faces. The important question was talked up one side and down the other by our able discoursers, and finally it was suggested that something was lacking on the upper lips of the young gentlemen in question. The sugges- tion being followed up it was found to be true. Which fact only goes to prove that even the humblest are missed. May 8 — The Roines Club gave a party today consisting mostly of a dance. But why that " I don ' t care ' ' ex- pression on Vince P. King ' s face as he castled down the room with a fair young maid on his arm? Simply this — his charmine partner was non p other than the christener of the famous Helene E. Sawyer glide, which diffi- cult step Vince executed at the min- strels with painful exactness. There- fore, in order to keep his poise when near so wonderful a personaee, it was necessary for Vince to assume first an injured air and finally a non-cha- lant one. May 16 — Today over 300 of our best lung powers turned out to Craw- fordsville. That town never had seen such a time before and the crowd of athletic fans which attended the meet THE BOOSTER was so great that the majority of them flooded the streets. Don Krull, our senior yell leader for the track meet, did such good work that we ' ve already provided him with a doctor and liniment for tomorrow. May 18— The cast of " The Turn of the Road " today received their first contribution in the vegetable line, which promises more in the near fu- ture. The} received the name of cab- bageheads. We wonder that, since " practice makes perfect, " why Orville D. Dur- yer Wells does not make a better lov- er in the play. Also we wonder if Thomas Mitchell received the part of the villain because of his previously -mblotched character, thus allowing him to give vent to unused feelings, and Carl Lyman, the part of the sweet, suffering hero, because of — er — rather embarrassing former posi- tions. He ' s All Right! Confronting that awful mob he stood, A Senior, grand to see. The questions burst about his head, But all undaunted he. Up spake a cruel Junior then, " Oh, laggard one! " he cried, " Why have you never moved the earth, Nor ever even tried? " " My answer, " said the ancient one In tones that all might hear, " Is, Wonder why it rains so much When really it should clear? " " But tell, " a sophomore then said, " Where did you find the time To make such awful Booster stuff, With such an awful rime? " " My answer is, " the words came clear And sharp above the din, " If Scotty hadn ' t sprained his leg, Do you suppose we ' d win " " But say, " then cried a freshie fresh, " Who put the money up For that last hop, and why do you With malefactors sup? " " I make reply, " the Senior said, k " Resorting to no tricks, Do you prefer four cylinders, Or do vou favor six? " " Hurrah! Hurrah! " his friends all cried As round his feet they fly. He ' s answered all and now he stands A vindicated guy. — Joseph Barkham. Two Comedies. Scene — Room 12. Enter Scott Coffman with suitcase. Approaches Julia Miller. " Well, I guess I won ' t see you any more. " Julia: " O, Scott, are you going away? Won ' t I ever see you any- more? Where are you going? " Scott: " Out to the State Fair Grounds. " (By r permission E. G., E. D.) Scene — Room 42. 8th hour. Fannie Spillman in convulsed laughter attempting to recite " The Rose That Grew Too High For Me. " Miss Perkins: " Keep your poise, Fannie. " Fannie: " Well, I can ' t when Rob- ert looks at me that way. " — O Piffle....! Lost — That dear little dog that res- cued my fire insurance policy wrapped in a wet towel from my burning home. If found please re- turn to Curtis Carl. We ' re all dead now; in other words, we have all been shot; well, if you can ' t get that, we ' ve had our pictures taken. Let ' s see — it ' s been so long we ' ve forgotten who it was that Elmer Iver- son took to the Forum banquet. Have you seen the star gazers? Where? They read the Star every morning in the rear of Room 10. Helen McCray: " Why do they call Charlotte Milton ' Squaw ' ? " Miss Emery: " Because she is Miss Chief (mischief). " Miss Perkins: " All your words live. " Wallace Krieg: " How about obso- lete words? " THE BOOSTER OPEN DAY— FRIDAY, JUNE 5 As the close of another school year draws near, the parents of the pupils attending Manual Training high school, naturally begin to wonder what their boys and girls have ac- complished. In order to satisfy the curiosity of the said parents, Mr. Stu- art has selected Friday, June 5, as the day on which the work of the pupils of this school will be on exhibition. The Booster has endeavored to pub- lish a brief summary of the work of some of the departments of the school. Open Day in Pattern Making. Whatever you do, do not miss the pattern making room open day where will be one of the greatest ex- hibits ever put out in any high school shop in the U. S. A. Some of the best patterns on special exhibi- tion are the big centrifugal fan to be used in the mill room, the new dyna- mo and motor for the applied elec- tricity course, and the two and four cycle motors. The exhibit includes the details in the construction of these patterns, skeleton, elbows, belt shifters, globe valves, anvil bases, brass door knockers and many oth- ers. In order to give the right impres- sion of the Mechanical Drawing De- partment and its work, Mr. Hiser has planed a new scene for the people to look upon. One room will be ar- ranged with drawing boards and in- struments in place, ready for mem- bers of the class to take their places. In another room the class will be seen working in the usual way. The main room will contain the exhibi- tion of drawing, tracing, lettering, some examples in script signatures and very attractive displays of archi- tectural drawings, water colors and details. The department has made arrangements to distribute souve- nirs, the making of which will lend great assistance in the displaying of the new automatic blue print ma- chine. The tracings and designs for the souvenirs were prepared by Des- mond Vawter, Forest Lancaster, Daniel Maholm and Robert Hats- field. The Forge Shop display will in- clude several types of lamps, jarde- nier stands, umbrella holders, luggage carriers, bicycle stands, etc. On Exhibition. Something out of the ordinary is to be ex ' hibited in room 20 this week. It is to be pictures of men and women and their ways of dressing beginning with the 14th century. These pic- tures show that in 1550 it was stylish to wear boards that extended two feet around the hips. In 1580 the first high stiff standing collars began to be worn. From 1588 to 1620 the men dressed gorgeously in gaily colored satin coats and knee breeches with silk hose to match. In the seventeenth century the ladies wore hoop skirts and large headdress. 1830 was the year when the men began to wear long trousers for the first time, while the women began wearing poke bonnets. From 1850 to 1870 the ladies in the illustrations look absolutely de- formed. The bustles and tight jer- sey came into existence in 1886. These last till the end of the nine- teenth century when the Bell skirts became popular. Our own styles come at the end of the row of pictures. If you want to see them for yourself, don ' t forget room 20. — R. S. The girls in the cooking depart- ment will sell lemonade and cake to the footsore visitors. Miss Perkins ' expression class will give a program of selections in the auditorium Friday during the eighth period. Everybody is invited. The Gym. students will give an ex- hibition of folk dances and drills un- der the direction of Miss Smith and Mr. Schissel at 1:30 Friday and Sat- urday in the gymnasium. THE BOOSTER Foundry Opens Wide. Here is a chance to see our foundry. If you never had the opportunity be- fore, open day is the time and room " C " the place. Beside the core work, and the moulds of lathe beds, pulleys, cranks, flywheels, Indian heads, an- vils, shot, and all kinds of other things, Mr. Henning will show the foundry in everyday operation. Some of the boys will be working on molds, and some in pouring the metal. Runs will be held on Friday, the first in iron, the secon din aluminum. The Nautical Story Which Came From Naught. — Spasm the First — The innocent (?) remark, " Let ' s go out for an Ambuhl, Helen, " cranked up the engine which turns the wheels of Fate. Helen and her friend picked up several of their friends and went down to the William Brooks, where the good craft " Raymond " Sayles. " Esther, hand me the keys and we will do some amateur Wundium! " said Charles Able. After they had seen Millard Oilar two boys warmed up the engine and fed him some Gass. The boat chugged out to the lake called Chester " Pool. " The bits of conversation recorded below were transmitted through the ether by brainless. The party spoke of the Merriweath- er they had been having. Some one who is a Forum member said, " I move that we crown Vincent King. " The second motion (which was pre- sented by Clara) : " Kruse all over the lake, " was also passed. Each mem- ber rose to his feet and cried, " Aye! Aye! Sit down and let Anna Roch the boat. " A Gail (not Shewalter) arose and here is where things began to hap- pen for Herbert Green in boating, fooled with the Rigg. The boat struck a Schol and began to Leak. It would have done you good to hear Lester Quack: " Carl, Fearnaught! Your body will be found when the Cops drag the lake] " Then arose a cry: " Throw out the life line! Vincent Sinkes! " By means of a Scully the party landed near a Teegarden on an unin- habited island in Brightwood. Then cried Chester, " Hurrah! I feel Saffer now! " I might add here that the trip made Esther Haggard and Effie Gaunt. Then Spake two of that mighty group of scientists Caldwell and Campbell: " John, Rust caused that Leak! " and thereupon Samuel, Singer and other- wise a hindrance to human peace, sang the " Helene Sawyer Glide " Part Two will follow immediately. Note: Not the group of mighty scientists. Don ' t confuse these ideas, fond reader. — Spasm the Second — Meantime Edward noticed his Lohss of his boat, and with a horri- ble oath he said, " I ' ll Hunter. " (Said oath was that if he didn ' t find the boat he would buy anew one.) He asked a Gardner if Ke had seen the boat. When he came upon the casta- ways he raised such a Row that though usually quite Stout they had to Carrie Henry from the " firing line. " When he made Joe Schell out the price of a new bo at it made Wil- bur Schwier. But the story must end since Frank Turney does not have the k in his last name. Sloan made some liniment which each used when he, she or it got home, and all de- clared they felt like a Newman. —J. C. Rush. A Lunch Room Poem. A golden hair ' s before me, Agleam it lies so fair; I wonder who once owned it, With its glint of gold so rare. Mayhap some knight once fought for her In days of long ago. While queen she was of some fair land With life and love aglow. Only the hair of a girl it is, In a tiny curling loop But I know I ' d like it better If it were not in my soup! The teams in the Manual Baseball League finished their season in the following order: Cubs, Athletics. Hoosier Feds, Tigers, Cardinals and Giants.

The editors wish to express their thanks to all the loy- al friends of the paper who have helped to make it a success this year. Next term the Booster will have an added feature. If the present plans become a reality, and if enough subscriptions are forthcoming, the Booster will contain photographs of prominent pupils, school activities, etc., throughout the whole year. This will be a great step in advance; but in order to do this it means that every student in Manual will have to support the paper. Just think how- much more interesting the paper would be if run upon such a princi- ple. Think how much more pleased you would be if, instead of merely reading an account of the track meet or of any other school event, you could see the exact picture as viewed by the camera ' s eye. Just think this over, Mr. Subscriber, and then when you come back next term, be the first one to hand in your subscrip- tion to the Booster. — Robert Barnhill. Ivy Day. Ivy day is a day that should be kept in the memory of every senior. Tho, here and there, there were a few flaws in the exercises of the last Ivy Day, yet as a whole the day was w T ell enough celebrated so that it should " stick " in the memory of its partici- pants. The details may be forgotten, but the general impression and the feelings, both glad and sad, that I re- ceived and, in fact, that all seniors re- ceived will remain fixed in my mind forever. Each word in the songs we sang aroused some emotion within me, and doubtless, v ithin my fellow students, for in reality what ' s true for me is also true for them. Mr. Colli- cot ' s speech moved me deeply; I simply absorbed his words. I couldn ' t think; I only felt. And so, if I may judge by myself, my fellow seniors did. Thoughts may be forgotten. This occasion w T ill cling to the mem- ory of every senior as the ivy clings to the wall. — Abe Zimmerman. A Tribute. Miss Lo la I. Perkins, the coach of the last two senior class plays, de- serves much praise for her worthy contributions to the activities of the school. Although the most recent ad- dition to our English department, she has undoubtedly made a niche for herself which no one else can fill. Miss Perkins came to Manual from the Stadium High School at Tacoma, Wash., and immediately recognized the need of a course in elocution, with the result that in February a class in " Expression " was formed under her instruction. From this class sev- eral members of the cast of the June play were chosen. In addition to coaching the casts of the senior plays, Miss Perkins has contributed much to the school by her entertaining readings at several times during the year. Miss Perkins has indeed endeared herself in the hearts of the Manual- ites. — deV. THE BOOSTER SENIOR MINSTREL SHOW Between reels of the new moving picture machine, on Thursday of Senior Week, the senior boys en- deavored to produce a good impres- sion on the audience. And they cer- tainly did from the start. They ap- peared mysteriously from the prop- erty room beneath the stage, from various windows of the auditorium, and when these places were used up, appeared to sprout from the floor. Edward Mitsch acted as interlocutor for his company, who peered over big white collars, artistically decorated socks, and above immense white gloves. If 1 { ) g i ' - The little slams that were gotten off on the faculty and pupils were of high class stuff, also the little parody en- titled " Montani ' s M. T. Band. " But the biggest hit of the evening was featured in the impersonation of Frank Tinney, that well-known com- edian. After the minstrel men had performed to the utmost, Maurice Thornton and Harold Trussler gave as an encore some of the new dances, varied with original productions. Then the men of " color " disap- peared in the same mysterious man- ner in which they had presented them- selves to the audience. Nina C. Bingham. I wonder why you boys all like Your chemistry so well In spite of all this dirt and dust And then that awful smell? To meet the girls here in the " lab, " So many and so fine; See, over there ' s old Anti Dote, And here is Ani Line. Sili Kate with Chlo Roform ' s Right next to Cara Mel; Over the flame is An Hydrous So close to Bell Metal. And Bessie Mir and Polly Mers, The cause of many a fall; But the biggest flirt of all the group Is Ethyl Alcohol. — John Trost. 10 THE BOOSTER ATHLETIC REVIEW Manual has enjoyed a very success- ful athletic career during the past school year. Every department of sports the school has offered has been enthusiastically supported by the stu- dents and the faculty. With the ad- -ent of the newly organized Manual Training High School Athletic Asso- ciation the success of the school ' s athletics has attained even a more tangible aspect. The work of the as- sociation this year has been, however, merely preliminary to the many tasks ihat face it. The real value of the or- ganization to the students, the faculty and the school as a whole, will be manifest in times to come. Although this year ' s athletic season has been entirely successful as compared with the records of the past, that of next year and of those to follow should, and without a doubt, will, eclipse the present standards of success. Each season should improve upon the pre- ceding one. With the help of the fac- ulty managers and the student play- ers, let us all aid in gaining for Man- ual indisputable prestige in athletics. Bowling. The liveliest bowling season that Manual has ever had was held during the past school year. Much credit must be given to Mr. Schissel and Mr. Davis, of the faculty, for the success of the league. Eight teams were or- ganized, namely, the Mohawks, Mohi- cans, Apaches, Comanches, Navajos and Sioux, and the first series was rolled off on October 30 at the Y. M. C. A. alleys. Later in the season, when basketball began to attract many of the maple-smashers, the managers decided to cut the league down to four fast teams, the mem- bers of the Apaches and Sioux being evenly distributed to the other four teams. At the same time a change of alleys was made, the Democratic Club alleys being selected to finish the sea- son on. Many high scores were rolled on these alleys, including the high score of the season, 225, made by " Shrimp " Bryant. When it came to smashing off strikes, Bryant sure was " Bryant, The Wrecker. " " Bud " Schaaf ' s Mohawks captured the pen- nant by steady bowling; his five hus- kies were headed only twice during the entire season. The season lasted for over three months, the last series being staged February 4. On this date, Schaaf ' s Mohawks cleaned up three straight games from Kuhn ' s Mohicans and easily copped the pen- nant. The teams finished in the fol- lowing order: Mohawks, Schaaf, Capt.; Navajos, Streeter, Capt; Mo- hicans, Kuhn, Capt.; Comanches, Kirkhoff, Capt. The league was a success in every respect, and bowling will no doubt hereafter be a permanent branch of Manual athletics. — Wilbur Schwier. State Basketball Meet. In the second State Basketball Tournament in which Manual has par- ticipated, our team finished well up near the front and one of our men re- ceived honorable mention on the All- State team. The seniors on the team were Renner, Fatout and Hall, and they ably upheld the reputation of the class in every way. In the first game, with Orleans, " Willie " Renner was the individual point getter for the Manual team, scoring 13 points. Capt. Behrent as floor guard did almost as well and displayed the " class " which after- wards got him honorable mention. This game was easily won, 31 to 17, and the Manual lads never played a better game in their lives. The second fray was more of a walkaway than the score implies. New Bethel went down in an 18 to 9 defeat. The feature of the game was the accurate shooting of Bartholo- mew and the clever floor work of Renner and Behrent. The Manual five had by this time struck their stride and were playing like a machine but nevertheless their third game was their Waterloo. This game might have been an easy victory with any other team than lucky Anderson. The final score was 18 to 12 in favor of Anderson but it THE BOOSTER 11 might have been just the other way so far as the relative merit of the two teams was concerned. Behrent was at his best and LaFeber at back guard was almost invincible. Nearly all the Anderson points were long " lucky shots. " Hall was good at scoring. Renner was a trifle wild but he played a good floor game. We took our medicine gamely and as soon as the final whistle blew, the fifty or more Manual rooters of the sidelines gave a rousing yell for the victors. The teams lined up as follows in all three games: Renner, forward; Bartholomew, forward; Hall, center; Behrent (Capt.), guard; LaFeber, guard; Fatout and Sourbier, substi- tutes. — Maurice Thornton. Interclass Meet. An interclass meet at colleges is usually a secondary item in the ath- letic life of the school, but at Manual our Interclass Indoor Track Meet is always one of the crowning events of the year. It not only earns the money to send the track team to the State Meet, but also stirs up the school en- thusiasm and gives the coaches an idea of the material for the State Meet. Our last Interclass Meet was a de- cided success in every respect. Both financially and from the spectators ' point of view, the meet was one of the best ever staged. The Underclass- men got the big end of the points, the seniors going down in defeat for the first time in several years. How- ever, the graduaters took the tug of war and as a result the twelve rope- heavers were verv popular, for th = senior pirls were not stingy with their prize of candy. The 20 yard dash went to " Eddie " Moyer. Hansberrv and Cornelius took second and third. Two heats were necessary to give all the 440 ard dash men a fair show. Dodrand Henderson, a Tune senior, took this event in fast time; Lamkin came sec- ond, and Sink s, another junior, fin- ished third. The mile run was the best race of the meet. " Shortv " Sin- clair copped the contest but onlv after Harold Bartholomew had held the lead for practicallv the entire dis- tance. Bowen. a freshman, finished third. The winner ' s time was 5:01, remarkably fast time for the " Y " track. " Scotty " Coffman, of the June class, took the high jump with ease. He cleared the bar at 5 feet, 3% inches. " Skeet " Thornton, slender senior, drew second honors, while Whitaker and- Lenahan shared third. Lamkin won the 220 dash from scratch. Henderson took second and Livingston third. George Cornelius took three easy heaves and landed the shot put, being benefited by a gener- ous handicap. Ed Swegman, January senior, copped second from scratch, and Moyer landed third place. The half mile went to Bastian by a gener- ous lead. Edwin Arthur, June- ' 14, ranked second and Horton Oliver, noted sport scribe, trailed in third. Bastian ' s time was 2:18. The Under- classmen defeated the Seniors in the relay race by an overwhelming lead. The men who landed " M. T. " mono- grams are Edgar Moyer, Dorland Henderson, Russel Lamkin, Robert Bastian, Kenneth Sinclair, Scott Coff- man and George Cornelius, Hender- son and Coffman being the only sen- iors thus honored. The meet brought out Henderson, Lamkin, Sinkes and Arthur, all of whom put up good efforts in the State Track Meet. It also gave us a line on our rooting powers which we so ably displayed at Crawfordsville, May 16. If all the Interclass Meets in the future are as successful as the one staged last March, there will be no " kick acomin ' " . — Donald Krull. Athletic Association. The M. T. H. S. Athletic Associa- tion has accomplished many results during its short career, the past term The members of the Athletic Council did their first work at the Interclass Track Meet. The members assisted in various ways on the eve of the meet, and also aided the faculty man- agers during the tryouts. The pen- pushers of the Booster Athletic De- partment were responsible for the ad- vertising on the programs. Nearly twelve dollars over the cost of print- ing the programs and admission tick- ets were realized on this project. The Manual baseball league was furnished with balls and bats of ex- cellent quality, and also bases which were made in the sewing department of the school. The trophy committee of the association succeeded in ob- 12 THE BOOSTER taining a handsome silver cup from the Em-Roe Sporting Goods Com- pany to be given to the winning team in the league. This is by far the costliest trophy that has been offered to a Manual team in several years. The State Track team were outfitted with neat suits decorated with an original M. T. monogram. A " first aid " equipment was also purchased for the track men. Considerable " pep " was stirred up among the track team fans, due to the efforts of the association. Yell practice was held several times in the school auditor- ium, and printed yells and mega- phones were distributed to the root- ers who went to Crawfordsville. This made a big hit with the Red and White rooters. Members of the Ath- letic Council also assisted the band in disposing of tickets for the musi- cal concert which was given to get money to send the school band to the State Track Meet. Although none rf these tasks performed by the Ath- letic Association is in itself vastly wonderful, the su mtotal has notice- ably boosted the athletic enthusiasm at Manual and has proved that a well organized student association is an important aid to the success of Man- ual athletics. Field Day. The feature of the year, and the thing, that created more enthusiasm, and aroused more interest than any other happening of the school term, was the field day exercises, given by the grade schools and high schools of Indianapolis, at the Federal ball park Saturday, May 23. Manual came in for its share of honors. One hundred and twenty girls representing the gym I and II classes, under the direction of Miss Smith presented the folk dances, including Scottish, Spanish and Swedish. The Manual boys, under the direction of Mr. Schissel, won a great deal of applause from the spec- tators for their excellent work on the horses. Both boys and girls showed their school spirit by giving the Man- ual yells, under the inspiring leader- ship of Dorothy Rice and Donald Krull. The patrons of the schools of the city appreciated the program, and the newspapers gave it considerable notoriety. — Clydia Wilson. Z «.C1« DONALD C. KRULL Last Words of Famous People. (In the future.) Mr. Owen: " That ' s a problem in analytics, or rather in calculus. " Mr. Kitch: " How is that? " Mr. Wood: " O yes, I see. " Miss Knox: " Now, folks — " Miss Donnan: " Sssssss hh!

Nonsense — Lyman is the hero of the class play. Koontz philosophy: If a mule kicks a sponge, the sponge will ab- sorb the force. Try it!

The Roines Club shall be officially independent of those of other years. Each club, how- ever, shall in June vote on a few new hoys who may establish the Roines Club for the next year. It is the aim of the Roines Club that it shall be an organization which shall go on existing 3 r ear after year, just as the school itself does; that membership in this ciub shall be an honor which every student shall deem worthy of striving for. — B. D. J.; H. M. T. The Turn of the Road. Manual should certainly be proud of the dramatic ability which was dis- played in the June ' 14 class play. The play was one of the very best given by the graduating classes. Everyone who took part certainly did excellent acting. Margaret McRoberts as Mrs. Granahan, snapped and stormed around as any woman of her partic- ular nature would, while Frank Henry as Mr. Granahan played the part of the henpecked husband remarkabl} " well. Chester Davis who reclined in an arm-chair most of the time, played the part of the grandfather to perfection. Carl Lyman took the part of Robbie John, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Granahan. The two other feminine roles were taken bv H i " t ; e Librowitz as Ellen, and by Nina Brig- ham as Jane. Both showed remarka- ble ability in their parts. The others who took part played squally well. However, all the praise should not be given to the actors and actresses for had it not been for other persons who helped, the play would not have been such a success. The class is indebted to Miss Izor, Miss Rawls and Miss Brown of the cos- tume department for designing the costumes. The stage manager, Earl Caldwell and his assistants, Stanley Petri and Murray Barnell supplied the scenery. The property committee was composed of John Collins and Alvin Jose. The players themselves true he praise to the patient efforts of Miss Perkins, who coached the play. Tennis. The fall 1913 tennis tournament was the most successful of any ever held. There were 29 entrants in the singles and fourteen teams in the doubles. The playing throughout the tourna- ment was first-class, many new en- trants proving to be dark horses. The most prominent of these was Bastian,. our new half-miler, who played up to the semi-finals only to be defeated by the redoubtable Kegley in a fast but one-sided match. Bastian is a sopho- more and should show good fight in the spring tournament. Honors in the singles were carried away by Elmer Iverson, June ' 14. This part of the play brought out some very good playing. In the first round, the match between Thornton and Iverson was very exciting. In the deciding set, Thornton had set- point on his opponent, but after some hard fighting, Iverson won the set and match. Richardson did not show up to expectations going down in de- feat 6 — 1, 6 — 2, to Iverson. Kegley on the other half of the tournament practically showed himself in a class all alone. From his playing, he was doped to win the tournament. His only real rival before the finals was Bastian, and even this star had no chance. The finals, between Kegley and Iverson showed some of the best playing ever done by high school players. The first two sets went to Kegley, and he had the third one, all but the winning point. When he had Iverson 5 — 3 and 40 — 15 on the decid- ing game, the match seemed finished. On a very fast and close play the score was made 40 — 30. The set went to 5 all and Iverson won it 8 — 6 and the two following sets 6 — 4, 9 — 7. This was probably the hardest match ever played in a M. T. H. S. tennis tourna- ment. As was expected, Iverson and Keg- ley won the doubles. There were a number of teams entered. Kermon and Kepler gave good fight to the winners, running the match to the full three sets, and in the finals, Woods and Richardson, by some wonderful playing, managed to run the five-set match only to lose out in the final set. Kegley and Iverson were very stingy about the prizes, Kegley tak- ing a medal, for runner-up in singles, THE BOOSTER DREAMS 15 4 wi; l)mi!i and a monogram arid a purchase prize for doubles; while Iverson took a racket and a medal as winner of sin- gles and another racket for the dou- bles besides his monograms. Woods and Richardson each received a large Manual pennant as runners-up in ' dou- bles. It is .hoped that the spring tournament has brought out as many good players and last but not least, good prizes, as the fall 1913 tourna- ment. — Elmer Iverson. Miss Lang just informs us that " foots " of perpendiculars, and " gooses, " meaning the kind that tail- ors use, are correct forms. An Ode to A Mustache.
