CLASS OFFICERS " SUCCESS CROWNS EFFORT " THE BOOSTER TJL V77 HT?TOftY October 9 — When it comes to record breaking, here ' s to the Allies ' General Kleeman, commander-in-chief of the Allied forces, in his speedy attack today, was vic- torious over General Von Fechtman and his followers, among them the well- known Miss Uhl. What ' s more, all down the ranks, the positions fell into the Allies ' power. (At least we ' ll say it did.) Charlotte Uhl, surviving the attack, changed her colors and was elected Kleeman ' s assistant. Hazel Grady was se- lected to write the numerous notes needed from time to time, and the Honorable Mr. Edward Gass was chosen to use his magnetic personality in extracting all the money that might be needed, from the tearful members of said forces. All ' s well that begins well. October 27 — Of course, so classy an organization as ours needed a color, a real-for-sure color. The boys, poor at sighting, must needs endeavor to have something that could be seen at least at one mile ' s distance, and immediately voted for peacock blue. (Imagine it!) It is dreadful to think what might have happened if the regiment, composed for the most part of girls and a few artistic souls, had not come to the rescue and obtained the right color for their standard — garnet. October 31 — Because of the great consternation among some of Mr. Faust ' s fair admir- ers, a council was held by the same at three o ' clock in the cloak room of Room 9. The subject discussed was " Where Did It Go? " After a lengthy debate it was decided that he must have lost it on his way to Virginia. November 2 — Extra! The June Seniors with flying colors, appeared in a. body today at the January ' 17 ' s celebration of Ivy day. Mr. McComb made his first Ivy day speech and the awe-inspiring president, George Littell, presented our pompous president with the silver trowel. Later the step-ladder trio made their debut into society and an eighth wonder was added to the seven famed wonders of the world. Gerald Watson held up his head! November 12 — Did anyone notice that it has begun to grow again? November 17 — Was it a success? I should say so. Maybe it was " like a Penal Farm. " Everybody had the best time ever. Pink is very becoming to Mr. Money ' s com- plexion. Indeed, he looked very well in his pink apron with the extra large pockets. We hope, however, that when he really begins cooking, he will have an apron that covers more space. November 21 — It looks something like a baseball diamond and yet they don ' t play baseball in Japan. It ' s individual, original and unusual. That is No. 20, the June ' 17 class pin. P. S. — Don ' t be insulted about the baseball diamond. It is not supposed to be large enough for Cy Clark to play on. November 26 — Norris Wagaman says a person can see it clear across the room now. It surely is doing well. December 15 — Early this morning, the appearance of the newly organized Fireman ' s Union lor, better known of late as " The Blue Shirt Brigade, " caused much excitement in the halls of Manual. It was announced that membership belonged exclusively to the world famous stars, Omar York, Edward Gass, and William Foley. Owing THE BOOSTER to some remarks accidently dropped about concerning the three members oL said organization, the brigade disbanded until further notice. ™ December 21 — Alas! it disappeared again la,st night. Great sorrow filled the hearts of the pupils in Room 28. January 6 — Today success crowned our efforts and a sunburst rose on our class. January 13 — A well-trained pompadour is a needed requisite for a yell leader and having duly considered this fact, we chose Howard Kennecke for the yell leader of our class. February 9 — History was made at our meeting this afternoon. Famous people filled its pages. Having recovered from the effects of Gass, we selected Lawrence Brink, the great mathematician, to care for the large sum in our treasury. We also decided that Norman Littell is the only one able to gaze into the crystal globe and to foretell the hidden and mysterious future, since we learned tha,t he has had vast experience as a prophetic seer having used the above men- tioned globe to prove all his most lengthy and notorious arguments. At the same time Hazel Pennington proved the logical person to draw up the class will, as her wisdom and knowledge is so great along these lines that it was impossible to choose any other. February 18 — Imagine our surprise when we discovered that a new name has been added to the cradle-roll of the Emmerich Manual Training High School. It is Archi- bald Leo Hegener. We all thought he was a freshie but he really is an Eng- lish teacher. April 19— One of the proud days of our senior year has now come and gone. We are sure our Ivy will grow, for it certainly rained enough and we sang earnestly enough to make that small vine cover the whole south portion of the building. May 10— Who knew our class held such actors and actresses? My, it was enjoyable! That was what everyone said. After the play it developed that Emmet Kelly has decided to become an instructor of ama.teur performers in " How to Fall Gracefully off of the Stage. " Lessons were also given on " How to Help Your- self to Ice Cream. " May 16— The ice cream was paid for. May 18— Today is Foolishness day and we ' re all acting natural. When I finish, more fools will appear, some lost in a forest, others mentally misplaced. This is almost our last chance to be together as a body; any way we say to you, January ' 18 ' s, that we hope you will leave this school as we are leaving it, with the knowledge that here are the best teachers and here is the best school in the whole United Sta.tes.

THE BOOSTER » IVY DAT APRIL 19th Were our Ivy Day exercises a suc- cess? Yes, it did rain all morning and we had just resigned ourselves to an indoor procession when, lo! and be- hold! to the joy of all, at 2:15 all rain stopped and we marched in a double line with our country ' s flag, our school flag, and our class banner all floating before us, to our ivy vine by the shop door, and then around the building, entering the outside auditorium door, across the stage, each saluting his country ' s flag as he passed, and then up the center aisle, taking our places in the front seats. The Ivy Day pro- gram, referred to in a previous issue of the Booster, was then given. The following words, taken from Mr. Mc- Comb ' s speech in acceptance of the ivy vine, were the marked feature of the program: « My attention at noon time was challenged by a question I saw on a small placard on the wall. These were the words: ' The United States of America. What do these words mean to you? ' This question has been rolling itself over in my mind ever since I saw it. And to every one of us at this time the very phrase ' United States of America ' means much. Some of the first things on a day like this which would probably spring to the mind of most of us are that it means opportunity; it suggests to us ideals of lofty patriotism, honor and devotion and it suggests to each indi- vidual one thing that no one knows but himself. There is an ideal ques- tion we shall all need to be asking ourselves more and more seriously, no doubt, in the next few months — What does the United States of America mean to us? And I want to couple with that on this occasion in your mind one other question — What does the Emmerich Manual Training High School mean to you? If we could ex- amine the heart of each one of us, I rather think that we would find some common quality in the answers to that last question as — A place of oppor- tunity, a place of training. It means a time of joyous, happy life, of prep- aration; it means a time when we are getting ready for something bigger, something broader, something better, something higher; it means a time for the formation of friendship and of ideals; it means a time of gathering Continuen on page 22 CLASS DAY MAY 18th Of course, in a senior class of one hundred eighty-four students one will find people with ail kinds of abilities. So in the senior class calendar oppor- tunity is given to these people to dem- onstrate their abilities. Athletics we have for athletes, dances for dancers, ivy day for speakers and poets, the class play for actors, and last upon the senior calendar we have class day for the fools and clowns. Friday, May 18, the June ' 17 class held the celebration of its class day, and it was demon- strated here that the June ' 17 class certainly has a supply of clowns of all sizes, all the way from Cy Clark to William Over, Bill Foley included. After the usual opening speech by Paul Kleeman explaining the purpose of the day a group of selected people entertained the audience with a little noise (we are afraid to call it music) in the form of a song. Then the offi- cial welcome address was given by Mr. E. Kelly who was dressed in a dress suit and a plug hat for the pom- pous occasion. Mr. Kelly in his speech, which was a masterpiece of torn fool- ery, expounded the terrors of the sup- pression by the faculty. Helen Smith, the class historian, read the history of the class, which she had so skillfully compiled. After the history, the Senior trio sang some songs and then the prophecy was read by Norman Littell. In this he outlined the futures of the members of the class with remarkable uniqueness. A parody on different scenes from the class play was given by Emmet Kelly, William Foley, William Over, Cyrus Clark, Ralph Scanlin, Burton Nelson, Taylor Obold, Harlan O ' Connor and Alfred Schad. Burton Nelson and Vadis Surface took slams at the mem- bers of the class in poems which they had written. Harold Snoke tried his skill in Spanish dancing as a take off on Estella McKinney in the All Fool ' s Vodvill. Then in an act entitled Moore Fools, Taylor Obold and Har- lan O ' Connor tried to imitate Mr. Moore and Mr. Edwards, but did not succeed. As the next number on the program, the girls had a take off on the " Jazz " band, which was complete in every detail even to a representa- tion of John Fitzgerald, black-face Continued on page 22 THE BOOSTER FOLLTE?

Little John, in dressing room Friday night: " A pin, a pin, or I shall come on too late! " Emmet Kelley: " Now, folks, we are going to have a 24-page Senior Booster (applause). The question is, do you want the pages to be blank? " Louie Henschen: " Well, they ' d be easier to read. " As Charlotte Uhl remarked: " The way some of the Seniors go into the air about class expenses qualifies them for the aviation corps. " ' Isn ' t this an awful Herbert Hill: picture of me? " Peg Stewart: " I don ' t know, can ' t fool a camera. " You All those desirous of renting dress suits, may apply to Lester Moreland, an experienced renter. To J. B. N. It takes a lot of nerve, I guess, To do a lot of things; To make a monkey of yourself, And do those crazy-flings. To come before an audience, Clad in another ' s clothes, Must take an awful lot of cheek, And cause some awful woes. To read those wills and histories, Must take a lot of pluck; Especially when you must know That escape will be just luck. But to give the names of lots of guys, Each a party to some " case, " And then to join their very throng, And even set the pace — That takes far more than nerve or pluck; We don ' t know what the virtue is; We haven ' t named it yet, at all, But Fuzzy Nelson ' s made it his. MORAL. Next time you feel inclined to preach, Or throw your poetry about, Be sure that you ' re immune yourself — Then bawl the other fellows out.

THE BOOSTER THE BOOSTER LLASX rLL We, the June class of 1917, of the Charles E. Emmerich Manual Training High School, of the city of Indianapolis, and state of Indiana, being of sound mind, memory, and understanding hereby revoke all former wills and declare the following our last will and testament: First. We direct that our bona fide indebtedness and our intrinsic gratitude to our teachers be paid by the January ' 18 class as soon after our departure as possible. Second. We bequeath to Manual Training High School five hundred thou- sand dollars ($500,000) to purchase and equip suitable grounds for military training, as we thought this would settle the argument of " Fuzzy " Nelson and Ross Mullen. Fifth. To the school we will one hundred and fifty dollars ($150) to pur- chase tardy and absent slips to replenish the supply exhausted by Sayors Miller. Sixth. We will Carl Fetchmann ' s graceful movements to Berry and Marsh, to be presented as the most precious original creation of the June ' 17 class. Seventh. We bequeath " Hob " Overstreet ' s love for continued semesters to Lloyd Allen thinking that he might want to stay at E. M. T. H. S. as long as " Hob " has. Eight. To Raymond Helm, president of the January ' 18 class, we will Paul Kleeman ' s speech-making ability with the thought that Helm might use it next year. Eleventh. We will Talyor Obold ' s popularity to LeRoy Engle so that LeRoy may have as good luck leading young ladies about the halls as Obold has had with Helen Smith. Twelfth. To the Kitch Koontz Company we give two thousand (2,000) pounds of John Fitzgerald ' s bald face preparation in order that the company may save much valuable time, that would otherwise be lost, in making the mixture for their next performance. Fourteenth. To Bob Smith of the January ' 18 class we will the pacifier, which Miss Knox received at the Christmas party. Fifteenth. We will the automatic bugles used in the June class play to the orchestra to be substituted when Fred Schaub is in a reverie. Eighteenth. We will all the ill tempers of the June ' 17 class to the fairies as we thought Ben Becker ' s pleasant disposition might come from dealing with the fairies. Nineteenth. To Bill Clifford of the January ' 18 class, we will Russell Kretch ' s pompadour in hopes that both together will make one that will lie straight. Twenty-second. To any good dancer in the January ' 18 class we will the dancing pomps which Ross Mullin and Gladys Benson purchased at Kinney ' s shoe store on East Ohio street. Twenty-fourth. To the January ' 18 class we give our best wishes for a pleasant and profitable time next year. Twenty-fifth. Our sponsor we leave to the next June cla,ss with the request that they appreciate and honor her for she has no superior. We appoint Mr. McComb executor of this, our last will and testament. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we have hereunto subscribed our signatures this 18th day of May in the year of our Lord, 1917. PAUL KLEEMANN, President. HAZEL GRADY, Secretary. HAZEL PENNINGTON, Will Maker. THE BOOSTER ■yyxFFWF Not long ago I experienced one of the strangest happenings of my life. So strange, so unique, so mystical and yet so real was it that I have decided to write the story of it. I do not ask that you believe, for in my sanest moments I do not believe it myself. However I shall tell you the story and you may place upon it your own valuation. It was a comfortable room in which I found myself. There was a cheerful fire burning in an open grate. Before the fire stood a great leather chair on which had been laid a smoking jacket and before which had been set a pair of men ' s slippers. Suddenly I heard a man ' s step upon the front porch and a knock upon the front door. Immediately a feminine figure darted through the room from the back of the house and rushed to the front door. I heard the door open. " Oh! Saylor, " said Sara Day. " Come Mag, " said I to the magie " let ' s don ' t intrude. " He snapped his fingers, made some queer noises and the house disappeared. By this time I had absolute faith in the powers of the magie and I was therefore not at all surprised to find myself in a dentist ' s office. Over a pulley, fastened to the ceiling, hung a rope. One end of it was fastened to the tooth of the patient in the dental chair. On the other end hung the dentist, Paul Kleeman, vainly trying to extract the tooth. The patient I recognized as " Cy " Clark. By the chair stood Viola Power, nurse, with a crow-bar in her hand. Just as Paul was motioning to Viola for a stick of dynamite which lay on a stand, the office disappeared. I then found before me a cage of ostriches in a zoo. In the center of com- motion going on inside I saw Henry Morgan teaching the baby ostriches the famous Morgan walk. In the next cage I saw another of my old friends, Bill Foley, teaching the rising generation of monkeys the fine art of being a real monkey. This picture faded away and I saw more of my high school friends. When I again looked around me I found that I was in a millinery shop. There was Bernadine Gisel, Ruth Forbes, Louise Gramse and Louise Haltmeyer. They were changing ten cent wire hat frames into one hundred dollar hats with forty-nine cent ribbon. In the front part of the store was Loretta Hergt and Virgenia Rea trying to convince a 50 year old woman that she looked 16 in one of their store hats. The buildings of Columbia University floated before me and presently I found that we were in the interior, in one of the class rooms. Professor Clinton Hanna was lecturing to a class. In a, back seat was " Hob " Overstreet sleep- ing soundly. " Hob " had, through years of patient struggle, reached his Senior year in college and now had high hopes of graduating in the next few years. " The laboratory of an Edison plant, " announced the magie as the sur- roundings changed. There I saw James Kline, Hall Marmon, Harold Snoke and Harry French working on the invention of a motor which was to take its power from lightning bugs. In another part of the plant I saw Rus Kretch, Harold Joseph, Samuel Sofnas, Rex Thomas and Louise Rybolt, completing the invention of the largest gun in the world. Much care had to be taken when it was fired. In fact a special telegraph wire had to be constructed to China., so that the Chinese could be told when to duck. The stately halls of the government buildings in Washington then sur- rounded me. The invisible magie led invisible me to the Senate chamber where we made an invisible entrance. It was evident that the United States had universal suffrage for on one side of the chamber sat women Senators and on the other sat the men. There was a feeling of intense excitement in the 10 THE BOOSTER below. The strangest thing was the fact that the women all wore their hair down their backs. Following the direction of the Senators gazes, I beheld Norris Wagaman, her hair also down her back, standing in the isle delivering a speech. " Gentlemen, " she said, " would you desire to see your wives, sisters, friends or daughters always wearing their hair down their backs. (Groans from one part of the gallery in which I saw Bill Appel, Everett Dunn, Eugene Ehrgott and Earl Goodnough. Sobs and tears from Herman Hederich). " We must ha.ve hair pins, " continued Norris, " but we refuse to pay such prices. Gentlemen, the hearts of all true Americans cry out against this greatest wrong of the century, the monopoly of the hair pin industry. " The house was in an uproar. Some of the women were sobbing, some clapping their hands, some vainly asking to be recognized by the chairman. Above it all I heard the base voice of Emmet Kelly, the chairman, loudly calling for order. Still the babel continued, while Louis Henchen, Carl Paulisson and Clarence Budd in the gallery frowned disgustedly at the proceedings of the fairer sex. , In front of the women ' s side of the house was a table with several cages of mice on it. Pointing to these, Kelly again called for order and threatened to release the mice on the floor of the Senate if the women didn ' t come to order. Immediately the house came to order; women stopped their hysterical actions and began dabbing their reddened faces with powder puffs while my friends in the gallery sneezed in the ascending clouds of talcum powder. Forest McAlpin then tried to make a speech in the defense of the hair pin trust, but the speech was drowned in the hisses of Geraldine Gibson, Edna Gassert, Lucille Lipps and others in the gallery. I departed glad that our nation was in the hands of such competent managers. We next passed through the Smithsonian Institute. In one of the museums, I saw Charlotte Uhl, Dorothy Albright and Marjorie Stewart. This sight van- ished before I could find out whether they were waiting for someone, as they used to do in the corridors a,t Manual Training, or were a part of the museum. Behind a window of a little shop, I saw the beaming face of Taylor Obold. On a sign outside were printed the words, " Ladies Tailor. " " Mag, " I said, " this rapid transit has worn me out. Can ' t you just tell me what the remaining of my Senior friends will be doing. I wouldn ' t ask, but you seem to know everything without having to go to E. M. T. H. S. to learn it. " " That ' s alright, " said the magie, " we ' ll return to your room first. " No sooner had he said it than we were in my room, from which we had set out. The magie bore the look of a, spiritualist when communing with visions of the future, and he soon began the story of what he saw. " 1 see, " he said, " Gertrude Lehman giving dancing lessons to a class in which Walter Hiser is star pupil. " Leona Foppiana is in a convent and is just asking the prioress to let her organize a basket ball team. " Ross Mullen works in a laundry in the day time and calls on the authoress, Gladys Benson, in the evening. The magie stopped talking. " That is the end, " said he. " I have told you of the future of every member of your class. " " Mag, " said I, " whether you ' re a genie, a devil, an angel, or simply the pro- duct of my own imagination, I don ' t know. At any rate you ' re a good sport, and I ' m obliged to you for all your trouble. " " You ' re welcome, " said the magie, " but before I go wouldn ' t you like to see what your own future will be? " " No! no! for heaven ' s sake, no! I know you must be tired and I wouldn ' t think of troubling you, " I said, pushing him toward the door. " Good bye, then, " said the magie, laughing, and he vanished before we reached the door. This concludes the story of my strange experience. I have rubbed the lamp since that time, but the magie never appeared. I therefore do not want you to believe the story, for in my sanest moments I scarcely believe it myself. This much, however, I shall say. If the future here prescribed is not in accord- ance with your present ambition, just put forth a little effort and I think you can avoid the fate which the magie seems to have in store for you.

That is, no longer boys and girls, but young men and young women. And as men and women you will help to determine the trend of municipal and national feeling, think- ing and acting. Now, as never before, this feeling, thinking and acting should not be done on the surface. It should not be done frivolously. Your class play, class day, dances and parties, with all their fun, legiti- mate fun, in which the faculty and students shared, are things of the past. Now comes the commencement sea- son, a time for looking forward seri- ously into the future. It is to be hoped that this thinking will be so done that there will be less likelihood in the fu- ture of the President of the United States and other leaders of the nation, finding difficulty in impressing the people with the serious import of a crisis such as we are passing through now. The editors of the Senior Boosters and the June ' 17 class wish to extend their thanks to those who have aided in making this issue a success. The Art Department has aided in making posters and by giving valuable advice. The Booster staff has aided in copy- ing and rewriting articles. Carl Zim- merman designed the zinc etchings used throughout the issue. Finally, to those who have aided by handing in articles and pictures, we wish to ex- tend our thanks. We are indebted for the photographs to the McKelvey and Myers, Bretzman, and Nicholson studios. Senior Honor Roll. During 7 Semesters — Irma Gulley. During 6 Semesters — Ruth Sanders, Helen Smith.

THE BOOSTER 13 • OUR FINAL EXIT " Wasn ' t the class play wonderful? " " Oh, I wouldn ' t have missed it for any- thing! " and " Didn ' t everyone take his part well? " were some of the rap- turous exclamations of a Sherwood au- dience, heard after the performance and in conversation with friends later. That it was a great success is agreed by all who saw the play and enjoyed its beautiful scenes and its rapid ac- tion. Those who craved excitement were satisfied when Fitzwalter, at bay, called out the loyal foresters of Robin- hood; when the fight, into which rushed the mysterious knight, oc- curred over Will Scarlet ' s execution; and when the horrible deeds were com- mitted in the abbey. In contrast were the fairies, sixteen of them, flitting, with starry wings flying, under vari- colored lights, and with Oberon and Titania, wishing to do all within their power to save Robinhood and Marian. Paul Kleeman, handsomely be- decked in green, with long hair and a new beard for every performance, ably took the part of Robin, Earl of Hunt- ington, outlaw and lover of Marion Fitzwalter. His merry followers were R. Schakel, H. Haskett, M. Clark, E. Gaskins; Alfred Shad as Will Scarlet, Russel Frakes as the hump-backed Much, Harry Morton as Little John, Robin ' s dearest and most solicitous friend; and, merriest of all, Taylor Obold, twice as plump as usual with all his padding, was Friar Tuck, about whose " slim " waist Robin jestingly re- marked. The part of the sorely tried old lord, Fitzwalter, was taken by Em- met Kelly, while Dorothy Williams as Marian Fitzwalter, his daughter, was loved by all, including her devoted maid, Jenny, played by Maude Payne. Sadye Sebel was a weepy Widow Scar- let, and Geraldine Gibson, Anna Hee- ringa, Esther Wilson, and Herbert Hill were starved peasants. Norman Littell as Prince John, base villain, aspirant to the throne and to Lady Marian ' s hand, showed great feeling in acting his part, as did Doro- thy Albright, who made an ideal Queen Elinor. King Richard was played by Drexel Hunt and his minstrel, Blondel, who roamed the country singing, was Carl Fechtman. The part of the pompous sheriff was taken by Delbert Morse, whose three assistants were Earl Schmoe, Ralph Scanlin, and Wal- ter Heiser. Prince John ' s nephew, Ar- thur Plantagenet, was Irma Gulley, and the prince ' s retainers were Wil- liam Over, Carl Paulissen and Harold Snoke. Two nuns were Leona Quin- zoni, prioress of Kirklee, and Loretta Hergt, a novice. The court ladies were Gertrude Lehmann, Laura Mol- ler, Inez Weddle, Lucile Lipps, Jose- phine Keller, Virginia Rea, Charlotte Uhl and Marjorie Stewart. Much fairer than mere mortals was Lois Deck, queen of the fairies, with her beloved wings and fairy wand; and Oberon, the king, was Edward Talbott. Their court consisted of sixteen fairies, Dorothy McCoy, Gladys Ben- son, Irma Gulley, Ida Koor, Adrienne Tyner, Hazel Gra.dy, Elaine Clabrou, Dora Sapirie, Dorothy See, Alma Maschmeyer, Sara Day, Adah Young, Rose Tegeler, Mary Henderson, Lorena Miller, and Ruth Sanders. Norris Wagaman was the frolicsome Puck, and Ben Becker, Shadow-of-a-Leaf, the fool. Lester Moreland had the important job of stage manager, and the electri- cians were Russel Kretsch and Harold Joseph. Others who helped to make the play a success were John Goll, Forrest McAlpin, William Stevenson, Frederic Smith, Burnam McMath, Ray- mond Price, Cecil Jordan, Elmore Bry- ant, Dewey Fitch, Warder Kemper, Henry Morgan, William Zeiher, Harry Clift, Harry Bernht, Paul Ritter. A Toast to Our Friend. Here ' s to our parting, unwillingly, Boys; Here ' s to the days when we really had joys; Never again can we such days find, As we spent in the school that we now leave behind. Higher than any, the best one of all, Manual, if you need us, you know where to call. We ' ll back you in everything that you wish to do. So, here ' s to our parting, but ere we go, We ' ll plant good " On Manual " down deep in our soul, And following that motto we will strive for our goal. — A Modest Senior in Room 10. 14 THE BOOSTER P J k j - ' ' IBS n B ' fTf i " 2h fL? £3 fl i , W£ Jgllj0 j f%M. p« i » lit Ai £mEt 3 h J a« B ■E jA -tutfi£ • ' ■»t.t» . • 1 .

During the first year of the club ' s existence, through the efforts of Miss Odell, the sponsor, the help of competent officers, and the co-operation of the members, the club was able to progress and im- prove constantly, and to accomplish some very interesting and instructive work. The club was again organized in the fall of 1916, under the excellent spon- sorship of Miss Odell, and proceeded, with a membership much greater than that of the previous club, to carry on the work which had been started. Dur- ing the past school year the Photogra- phy Club has been especially active in our school life. The club has been able to enjoy many jaunts, and, at their regular meetings, numerous lec- tures. For many of these lectures the club is indebted to the faculty of our school; speaking specifically, it is in- debted to Miss Helming, Miss Eunice Perkins, Mr. Stewart, and Mr. Kitch, and the club wishes to take this oppor- tunity to again thank these teachers for their help and co-operation. The one project of the club for the past term has been the fitting up of a dark room. Such a project has been ac- complished and the club now main- tains, in a small room off of the chem- istry laboratory, a dark room, where printing and developing of pictures is carried on. A word might also be said about the policy and purpose of the club. The purpose of the Photography Club is to supply a means whereby the students of this school may study amateur pho- tography. The policy of the club has always been that the members of the club shall work as a whole upon any project, that upon jaunts the club shall remain in one body; that is, that people shall not wander away from the main body of the club in groups or pairs, and that all shall cheerfully fol- low the rule of the majority in any decision. So, with this policy and pur- pose as its guide and with the co-op- eration of the student body and fac- ulty, the Photography Club is nearing £ the completion of its second successful year of existence. Continued on page 22 THE UKELELE CLUB The Ukelele Club, alias the Jazz Band, was cornered last night and our reporter elicited these facts from the unwilling(?) gleemen: Early in this semester, when an agi- tation for more clubs was sweeping this Emmerich High, a conscientious group of June ' 17 Seniors (we say " conscientious " because we believe this the first, last, and only time that we can apply this term to the group) banded together with the avowed pur- pose of forming a club. Here the tes- timony became confused; some said the agitation for more clubs was the reason for organization, some say not; some say the original intent was to get Carl Fechtman in with a bunch of fellows tall enough to hide him when he sang. At any rate, it seems they all agreed to pass a resolution in some such form as the following, which was extracted from their hours (they are so slow they can have no minutes) : Whereas, a bunch of (ir) responsible June ' 17 Seniors have the underlying bond of mutual noise and loudness, and whereas, the best known and most diverting instruments and articles by which loudness can be vociferated to the admiring public are Ukeleles, Nor- man Littell, and the trio of certain members who have hereunto at the close signed their respective first and third names, do hereby loudly resolve to become a club named the " Ukelele Club of Manual. " We, the aforesaid members, do hereby ratify the forego- ing resolution and in witness do duly (re) sign our names. Signed: Ray Michael, Carl Fechtman, John Fitz- gerald, Albrecht Wellman, Earl Gas- kins, William Over, Edward Talbott, Donald McCasky, Norman Littell, Har- lan O ' Connor, Paul Kleeman, and Vera Fleck, pianist. Apparently from most of the infor- mation received at the hearing by our said reporter, the club rather quieted down. Determining, however, to call the attention of the public, the com- pany broke into vod-vil one day a trifle later than they were billed to appear. One of the members had been so de- layed by the suddenly accidental death of a jitney-bus driver that it took quite a time to soothe his bird of pair-a-dice and find his " uke, " misplaced in the excitement. At the end of a strenu- Continued on page 22 16 THE BOOSTER KELLY Here I will endeavor to give my definition of Agony. No matter how indefi- nite it may seem, those concerned will know only too well. You have the privi- lege to make your own deductions. Agony, A-g-o-n-y, contrast of Joy, J-o-y, de- rived from the Irish for use in Dutch: Always-Guilty-of-Nonsense-Yourself. 1 have experienced Joy before and after taking Agony, and likewise Agony before and after Joy. Now that ' s a strange thing, too. Up until last October I was a great friend of Joy, but then I met Agony. Joy vanished, yet I enjoyed Agony. What better proof of enjoying Agony than six months of (it?) Yet for a. short interval Joy returned, policed me around to a f are-you-well ; then I gave up and swore, not on bibles, that Agony was pleasure beside Joy and — What ' s more, she is! Somebody Else ' s Agonies. There was a fairy named Oberon, A rail of the Gym he sat upon. His mien was pathetic, His meaning authentic. And, yes, it happened right thereupon. Unconsciously Elaine Clabrou ' s proof envelope was opened and inside lying unconscious was Bob Skidmore ' s picture. A report from a dance came to us, Oh, how could it escape our notice? The lights were bright, her hand so white, And a kiss fell thereupon all right. Proof: Evans Plumming Co. Myself: " I wouldn ' t let a little old corporal put me off a horse, Brink.

" Peacher: " Up here in society. " Note — Society, Jim Kline, Cy Clark, etc. We had a blow-out in our class; Perhaps it came from too much gas. We have Bud Gass and we have Gas- kins, Who have their outs, and have their ins. Do you think it would be possible to count all the old men (your fathers) Carl Fechtman is acquainted with and speaks to on the street? We ' ve fat and thin and tall and stark. Just look at our own Cyrus Clark. Because he ' s fat he looks so sweet, And he is big from head to feet. Talk about Marquis De Lafayette hav- ing a complicated name; read this and then talk: Bob, Peggy, Bobby, Peg, Marj, Marjorie Stewart. Of course we have some more who are fat. Now, who do you suppose is meant by that? Well, he is brave and O-so-bold. Now, sure, his name I have just told. Oh, but you think you know all about the " cases " in this school. Well, I know another: Paul Kleeman car- ried one home several times last week. Rags is Rags and Fuzz is Fuzz. We have both in our little Fuzz. Just this minute he ' s chewing the rag. And it is sure his hair can ' t sag. If Bill Over only had Bobby P. B. P. M. M. S.

THE BOOSTER 17 A YEAR OF ATHLETICS With a membership of over 1,000 in the Athletic Association, and two new coaches, E. M. T. H. S. has ha,d a good year for athletics. Tennis. The first event of the athletic calendar was the fall tennis tournament. This was the most successful one. in the history of Manual athletics. It was played under the painstaking guidance of the late Mr. Ballard. From the start considerable interest was manifested as to who would win the tennis title of E. M. T. H. S. because the former champion, Fred Bastian had left school. This fact added additional interest and enthusiasm to the tournament. In the singles championship about eighty students signified their inten- tions of trying for the title, while in the doubles twenty-eight teams were entered. Many promising youngsters were eliminated in the first round and the elimination continued until but four, out of the large field of starters, were left for the semi-finals. These were Edward Elliot, Gerald Watson, Kenneth Udell and Carl Fechtman. In the first match of the semi-finals the dope bucket was upset when Elliot defeated Watson, who had been picked by many to win the title. The scores of this match were (4-6), (6-3), (6-3). The other match of the semi-finals brought forth another surprise when Udell, a dark horse, forced Fechtman to the limit and many times had the match at point-set-match. The scores were (6-3), (3-6), (8-6), Fechtman winning after a hard fought match. The two remaining players played for the title, Fechtman finally winning after a four set match (6-3), (3-6), (6-2), (6-1). In the doubles championship, Fechtman and Watson were victorious, win- ning over Hob Overstreet and Lawrence Brink in the final match. The scores being (4-6), (6-1), (6-2), (6-3). Next fall inter-school tennis will be attempted with Shortridge and Tech- nical High Schools, and, as tennis is rapidly becoming the favorite outdoor sport of the high school youths, no doubt inter-school tennis will be successful. Several good players including Udell, Elliot and Robinson are still in school and Manual should give a good a.ccount of herself in an inter-school tournament. The girls also staged a successful tennis tournament under the direction of Miss Smith. Florence Walsh won out over Dorothy Simering in the final match for the singles championship. Florence Walsh and Dorothy Simering defeated Helen Steinmetz and Estelle McKinney for the doubles championship. Basket Ball. The call for basket ball candidates was issued the first week in October, and those who reported were put to work at cross country running. This was concluded by a cross country run held the latter part of October which was won by Eugene Kessler. The basket ball men were divided into four teams and after several weeks of practice the first game was played between the Blues, captained by Hobert Overstreet, and the Grays led by Harold Bartholomew, resulting in a victory for the Blues. Score, 14-9. The Blacks were captained by Del Morse and the Crimsons by Edward Gass. At the end of a successful season the Blues made up of H. Overstreet, H. Morgan, A. Rahn, C. Fechtman and J. Rosenthal, won the championship of the league. This was followed by the Monogram series in which the American Reds won two out of three games from the National Blues. The lineup of the Reds included Del Morse, W. Ault, A. Rahn, W. Sum- mers, W. Heiser, G. Gerrard and B. Robinson. The fall term finished at this time and everything was gloom for the state team, which had just started prac- ticing when it was announced that both Coach C. L. Williams and Coach T. B. Williams were leaving school. Joy soon swarmed over the breastworks when it was announced that Mr. R. B. Morrison of Botany fame was to have charge of the team. Delbert Morse was elected captain and the team got down to earnest work. The first practice game was lost to the Launam Specials by a score of 25-6. After the squad of twelve men had been pick a bomb fell into the camp with the news that Overstreet and York had been declared ineligi- £ ble. The climax of the basket ball season came when the team, composed of Captain Morse, Webb Ault, J. Rice, A. Rahn, H. Buschell, H. Morgan, W. Sum- mers and W. Heiser, journeyed to Martinsville to participate in the sectional 18 THE BOOSTER tourney. Having drawn West Newton for the first game, everything was set for a big victory, but West Newton proved to be the dark horse of the tournament and defeated us 35-25. West Newton was defeated by Martinsville in the final ga.me only after a hard fight. The 1916-17 basket ball season was then brought to a close by the awarding of monograms by Mr. McComb. Those who received them were: Delbert Morse, Webb Ault, J. Rice, A. Rahn, H. Buschell, W. Hei- ser, H. Morgan, W. Summers, C. Fechtman and Hobert Overstreet. Girls Basket Ball. It was originally planned to have four major and four minor teams for girls basket ball, but so many turned out tha.t it was necessary to form five major and five minor teams. The games were hotly contested and an excellent brand of basket ball was played by the fairer athletes of Manual. The series ended with the Grays, captained by Dorothy Simering, holding the pennant and the Whites and Greens tied for second, the Crimsons a close third with the Blues in the cellar position. The season was continued by elect- ing two Monogram teams. In these games the Whites, captained by Dorothy Simering, won two out of three games from the Reds and the season ended by the awarding of monograms to Ruth Smock, Lorena Miller, Belle Rosner, Dorothy Simering, Thelma Jaggers, Francis McAlpin, Muriel Oliver. Track. The basket ball season was soon followed by track team practice. With Captain Garten as sure points in the pole vault and, with the help of Mr. Morri- son, work was set about developing track stars. The Indoor Interclass Meet was held at the Y. M. C. A. on the Saturday before spring vacation, and was won over the Underclassmen by the close score of 41-40. The finds of this meet were two Freshmen, Charles Bybee, who ran the half mile and mile in good time, and Orville Speer, a fa.st dashman. Outdoor meets were scheduled with Rush- ville and Bedford, but these had to be canceled because of the heavy rains just before the meets. A meet was finally arranged with Martinsville High School for Monday, May 14. In this meet the track team got revenge for the defeats of the basket ball teams by defeating Martinsville by a score of 73-17. Captain Garten was the star of the meet, scoring 17 points. The Saturday following this meet the sectional track meet was held at the State Fair Grounds. Manual carried off the honors for this section with 28 points. Atlanta was second with 19 points and Sheridan third with 16 points. Captain Garten, of Manual, was the individual star, scoring 20 points. He placed first in the 120-yd. hurdles, 220-yd. hurdles, broad jump and pole vault. Bybee won the 880-yd. run and Fitzgerald, Cady and Messing placed third in the 440-yd. dash, mile run, and 220-yd. hurdles respectively. This will have gone to press before the final state track meet is held at Lafayette, but with Garten, Bybee and the others, it is thought that Manual will win its first state championship for seven years. Base Ball. With a State High School Base Ball Tournament to be held May 25-26 at Purdue University much interest was shown in base ball. Eighty boys made known their intentions of playing in the league. At the first meeting Thomas Quill was unanimously elected captain of the state team. The new captain informed the boys that ability to play ball and not friendship would win them places on the team. Mr. Ammermen selected Luckett, Heiser, Gass and McHale as temporary captains. Before the first game Luckett, Heiser, Rice an Noonan were elected as permanent captains. The first games were characterized by snappy, but not errorless, playing. Because of the rainy weather many of the games were canceled. As a result of these first games Mr. Schissel selected the boys who now compose the state squad. Every player put all his efforts into attaining a place on the team; but several of the best players were lost through ineligibility, nevertheless, Manual stands well in line for victory in the state meet. After many try-outs and practice games Mr. Schissel and Mr. Ammerman picked the following men as those who would produce results. They are: Captain Quill, W. Heiser, D. Hunt, N. Weber, M. Luckett, Ray Carson, H. Goett, D. Morse, H. Osswald, R.j Munroe, M. McElwaine and R. O ' Connor. With these men it is hoped to bring back a state championship in base ball as well as in track. THE BOOSTER 19 20 THE BOOSTER FORENSIC CLUB CHEMISTRY CLUB • The Forensic Club was organized at the beginning of the current semester. In response to the first call, eighteen boys and five enthusiastic faculty ad- visers reported in the auditorium. Plans were made for a membership campaign, which resulted in the doubling of the enrollment. At the third meeting, the constitution was adopted and the following officers were elected: President, Marion F. Clarke; vice-president, Alfred B. Schad; secretary, Bruce Lockridge, and treasurer, Gust Argeroplos. Mr. Money and Mr. Hegener consented to serve as faculty advisors. Raymond Schakel was appointed chairman of the program committee. The follow- ing subjects were selected and dis- cussed: " Resolved, That the Booster should be in the form of a newspaper. " " Resolved, That compulsory military training be introduced into the high schools. " " Resolved, That motion pic- tures are detrimental to high school students. " " Resolved, That capital punishment be abolished. " " Resolved, That compulsory military training should be introduced throughout the IT. S. " " Resolved, That the Philip- pines should be given their inde- pendence before the passing of an- other generation. " The debates have been well attend- ed, considering the number of times the meetings have had to be postponed because of conflicting engagements. The regular program consists of exe- cuting the business on hand, of a three-man team formal debate, and of a general discussion. Following this is the judges ' decision, which has proved very close in many instances, thus proving the ability of the pro- gram committee in selecting a well- balanced subject. Considering the work done in the Forensic Club this term, it has proved a success and has at least stimulated a desire for debating at E. M. T. H. S. Next term ' s club should produce a de- bating team to represent our school in the sectional inter-school debating contest. — Marion F. Clarke, President. Mr. Winslow, Cy Clark and Buddy Gass are like little babies now. They are crazy over their new plaything, a Victrola.

Twenty boys profess to be members of it. The club was organized March 7, 1917. Russell Kretsch was elected presi- dent; Robert McMurray, vice-presi- dent, and Clifford Barton, secretary- treasurer. Mr. Vallance sponsors the club. Mr. Neff headed the first program with an interesting lecture, " The His- tory of Chemistry. " Mr. Koontz astounded the club with his exhaustive lecture, " The Atom and Its Electronic Structure, " at the second regular meeting. The culminative program of the year was given by Dr. C. R. Noble, one of the best organic chemists in the state. His subject was " The Difficul- ties of Industrial Chemistry. " This first Chemistry Club leaves a firm foundation for next year ' s club to build upon. — Lester Moreland. Bon Voyage. On March 1 the good ship Destiny bearing the January ' 18 class weighed anchor, and with a fair breeze left port on its cruise of ten months. A com- petent group of officers are charting her course through the sea of social events and business activities. At the wheel (most appropriately) stands Raymond Helm, while his assistants are Nellie Thomas, first mate; Barton Henry, purser, and Louise Schneider, in charge of the " Ship ' s Log. " The ship is one of the trimmest craft that ever sailed for a harbor in the land of Graduation. From her top- mast floats her colors, like dancing sunbeams — old gold. High above the spray her prow bears the insignia of the crew. It is rumored that after June, 1917, the ship will become a huge merchant- man.

Then there ' s Ross Mullin, who looks, love-sick swain, At Gladys Benson, his much loved " Dame. " And there ' s Helen Smith and Taylor so bold, More romantic than tales of lovers of old. There ' s Earl and Sadye, Evelyn and " Cy, " Sarah and Russel — we ' ll just pass them by. But one of the cases they ' re trying to hush — They say Bob Peacher has a Short- ridge " rush. " And there ' s young Herman Hedrich and Lois Deck — To think of them all would my poor mind wreck. But don ' t you know there ' s scandal of it all, As they go wandering thro ' the hall? And it sets a bad example for our Freshies, dear — They soon think it is part of Senior year. But if they want to keep out of din, They had better consider the question — then not begin. — Vadis Surface. June ' 17. Blondy ' s Song. Night of our June Class Play, What did ' st thou hide?

Since the prophet omitted the name of Norman Littell, we will submit this as the genii ' s vision for said person: We came to the 44th floor of a build- ing in which there was a room similar to a doctor ' s office.

S. « The End Justifies the Means • SENIOR BOOSTER TA +r, ' t ' 7 IN APPECIATION of his past suc- cess on the faculty and as an expression of loyalty and sup- port in his new duties as head of our school, the January ' 17 class dedicates this issue to Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb. THE CLAyV PROPHECY - RALPH PROCTOR Whether it was a vision, a dream, or a mere hallucination, I don ' t know. At any rate, I saw things " passing strange. " I saw distinctly George Littell, Gerald Watson, and Fred Glossbrenner singing to a large audience. How natural they looked, and how I longed for them to keep on singing. But the music slowly died away and the trio was gone. Then appeared Manual, the school of our meditations, and, sure enough, Miss Burnside still presided over room 29. There then frisked into view Raymond Carson with a pair of scissors in his hand and a bottle of hair tonic under his arm. The first victim of this mighty barber was Robert Kennington, who slept beneath his caressing touch. The next applicant for Raymond ' s skill was Earl Hart, chief stockholder in the town ' s movie show. Who should appear now but Juanita Fish, smiling amid the wares of a confectionery shop, to be superceded by Edwin Ennis, more handsome than ever, wiping the tables of his ice cream parlor. The cackle of the hen and the crow of the rooster heralded my introduction to the chicken farm of Miller and Kenneth Wright. Were they working in the chicken yard? Positively no! They were viewing instead the dozens of eggs which were like so many dollars lying around, for eggs in 1924 are quoted at eighty cents a dozen. The sands of the desert swept into view. Harold McNulty, Robert Bragg, and Harry Hoddie, all three in the picturesque dress of the East, mounted upon camels, were traveling along an old caravan route. Harold McNulty was selling H 2 which Harry Hoddie carried, the money for which was received by Bob Bragg, who had a national cash register at his elbow. They expected a thriv- ing business, but home consumption was reducing their stock. Harold was taking his seventh drink when the desert scene passed from view. Again a theater! By all the familiar surroundings I knew it to be Keith ' s. There was being presented by Fred Harrington and his wife, Helene Fahrbach, and Paul Dra.per, Elsa Goett and Gretchen Nackenhorst, a one-act comedy, en- titled " Parsnips. " I was just wondering whether it could equal " Carrots, " when the picture completely vanished. THE BOOSTER CLASS OFFICERS Dorothy Simeringr, Secretary; George Littel, President; Helen Burnett, Vice-President; Julius Frick, Treasurer. Th.e Class Plays The January ' 17 class departed from the usual custom, and gave three short plays, instead of one long play. The three plays were " Christmas Boxes, " " Carrots, " and " The Dust of the Road " — a comedy, a domestic tragedy, and a moral play. The three plays chosen thus allowed a; greater field of dramatic effort. In the first play, " Christmas Boxes, " Ralph Proctor, as " Dennis, " and Es- ther Thompson, as " Nora, " kept the audience in laughter with their hu- morous dialogue and amusing situa- tions. They were ably supported by the rest of the cast. A difficult transition from a humor- ous play to a play with a serious at- mosphere, was very well handled by the cast in " Carrots. " Paul Draper, as " Carrots, " and George Littell, as " Mr. Lepic, " his father, succeeded in delineating character to an extent that was remarkable for untrained actors. The crowning success of the per- formance was the " Dust of the Road. " Undoubtedly, Paul Iske, as the tramp, was the most finished actor of the en- tire production; his diction, his ges- tures, and the intonation of his lines was excellent. The supporting cast was as perfect as possible. The " behind-scene " people are greatly responsible for the perfection and smooth running of the various scenes. THOSE RESPONSIBLE. " Christmas Boxes.

THE BOOSTER Ivy Day- Class Day If you are so disposed, take a mag- nifying glass and search carefully along the front wall of Manual until you come to a new white marker. There you will find a small young vine struggling vigorously with the turf, and upon closer inspection you will find that it is the foundation of what will be a large ivy vine. This precocious little vine was placed there November the first by the departing January class, or rather by George Littell, while the class crowd- ed around and looked on. Then, after the act was done, ninety Seniors formed in line and sedately marched into the auditorium to a march played by Malcolm Day. Before sitting down, and while their ribbons and armbands were still unmussed, they sang their Ivy Song, the words of which were written by Helen Fahrbach and sung to the tune of " Come Back to Erin. " George Littell, president, then pre- sented the Ivy, which was graciously accepted by Mr. McComb. Another Ivy Song, the words and music of which were written by Helen Som- mers, was sung. Several rounds were sung by the " stepladder trio, " Watson, Littell, and Glossbrenner. After the recitation of the class poem by Ger- trude Wilkinson, a piano solo by Helen Sommers, the singing of another song, " To the Ivy, " the words by Mabel Tyner, George Littell, in a short speech, presented the Ivy trowel to the president of the June class, Paul Kleeman, who accepted it in the name of his class. " On Manual " was sung, followed by the rousing yells of the class. This closed the exercises. The Roines Club. What Phi Beta Kappa and other honorary societies are to students in colleges, the Roines Club is to the boys of Manual. The members of this club represent the best scholarship and the finest traditions of the school, and their purpose is always to be on the lookout for ways in which to help the school, as is suggested in their motto, " Altogether, all the time for a greater E. M. T. H. S. " The members of the Roines Club have, in continuing their bond of friendship and loyalty after their grad- uation, formed a natural nucleus in the Alumni Association for promoting the interests of the school. — Evans E. Plummer. Was Friday ' s class day a success? Just ask the class. From the short opening address by George Littell to the enthusiastic yells by our depart- ing Seniors, the audience was kept in- terested and amused. The class his- tory, prophecy, will, poem and Senior alphabet, given in another part of the Booster, will verify this in part. The parody on the class plays, by Dallas Galbraith, was something worth re- membering. The curly-wurly puppy was the main character. Yes, we had songs; one by the " stepladder trio " and one by Ralph McWilliams. Fred Gloss- brenner was a good dummy at the mer- cy of George Littell, in " A Bunch of Rags. " Fred Glossbrenner, Paul Iske, and George Mess drew the cartoons shown in " Light on Senior Activities. " After the presentation of the gavel by the January class president to that of the June class, " On Manual " was sung by all. The program ended with class yells, led by Fred Glossbrenner. — Emma Tacoma. Masoma Snapshots for Senior Class Books. 1 The first is a group of Masoma girls in consultation with Mrs. Rhem. There is Helen Smith, the president of the club; Gretchen Nackenhorst on the point of making a remark of protest; and seated around are Emma Tacoma, Claska Taeoma, Dolores Hall, Melba Coulter, and Grace Carter, pondering on what has been said. 2 This is Helen Fahrbach leaning over the office desk taking directions from Miss Johnson for some message to be taken over the building. 3 No, this isn ' t a scene in the class play; it is a, little tableau given for the club by a few of the girls at Xmas time. 4 That girl you see putting away the books in the library is Esther Hum- mel, one of the assistants this year. 5 Here is an interesting picture. Mrs. Rhem at her desk, Miss Emery at her side, both busily engaged in cutting something. That group of girls at the tahle are also cutting and pasting. It must be the joke books they made for the sick in the hospitals at Xmas time. — Esther Hummel. THE BOOSTER The Booster PUBLISHED WEEKLY BY The Pupils of Chas. E.

Poor old January seventeens must exit and each one separately book-up at an- other show. Upon our word, we do hate to go. For just think, we are about to be dis- banded and scattered to the winds. We have been classmates for four years and have just begun to know each other well, to find out that in this class are lofty ambitions, and that there is a joy of fellowship which we feel we will never be able to find any- where else. Then, too, we are about to leave the influence of those many teacher friends who have been con- tinually revealing new and bigger things to us. We tell you we feel blue, but we are not going to be babyish and cry about it. We know that we have been in school to prepare for what is coming — life. We seek large tasks before us and we want to get out and do our share of the world ' s ' work. We have gotten our visions and we are going to stick to them. So it is that we say au revoir with a pang at the heart, and all pile off the stage so that the June seventeens may come on ready for the next act. Athletics. Starting with two new coaches and a record-breaking membership of one thousand members in the Athletic As- sociation, Manual has had a very suc- cessful term for athletics. In the fall tennis tournament, more aspirants turned out than ever before, both in the girls ' and in the boys ' tourney. Florence Walsh won the sin- gles, and Dorothy Simering and Flor- ence Walsh won the doubles cham- pionship in the girls ' tournament, and Carl Fechtman won the singles, and Gerald Watson and Carl Fechtman won the doubles championship in the boys ' tourney. There was much strong competition in both tournaments. A new feature introduced by Head Coach Williams this year was the cross-country work, intended for the training of candidates for basketball. Eugene Kessler won the first annual cross-country run staged in October. In the cross-country meet, held be- tween Shortridge and Manual, Manual took first in points, but a Shortridge man finished first. Fred Cady took second for Manual. In the Olympic games held in con- nection with the Centennial celebra- tion, Manual took second with eleven points. Fred Gartens starred with eight points and O ' Conner made the rest. The basketball season started with a rush when Coaches Travis and Claude Williams held a mass meeting of boys ' basketball material. More than one hundred and fifty boys signed up for practice. The girls, too, had a large and enthusiastic turnout at their bas- ketball mass meeting. Miss Smith has been more than pleased with the way in which the girls of the school have taken hold of athletics this term. Since then, time has flown rapidly and a strong state team quintet will soon be selected. Morse and Overstreet are the only last year ' s state team men left to play, but many new men who are strong players are available, thanks to the big turnout at the beginning of the season. One of the faculty was heard to say, " We could almost lick Wabash, " and he isn ' t much wrong, either. THE BOOSTER THE CLASS HISTORY - GRACE CARTER With humble and meek apologies to those geniuses who are indulging freely in free verse, I offer this Class History. To most of us, four, fair, fine winters, Each following a summer of vacation, Have flown into Time ' s vastness, Since, filled at first with inward pride That we had reached that place of joy and consequence, We entered the Freshman ' s door to Manual Training. ' Twas then we thought that we indeed were It! Later, half terrified, awakening, we knew We were but units, in a throng forever coming, and forever going Thro ' those portals, when for a brief glad time, They mingle with each other for a term of years In study and in play. More thoughtfully did we pass Thro Sophomore and Junior years, Which are now resolved into shadows dim And memories of the past. At last came we into our own, Crowning glory of all our ambitious dreams, Our Senior year. And then we organ- ized And we are the class of January 1917. In our midst was a tall commanding figure, Named George Littell Of whom we stood in awe and whom we greatly feared. And him we made our president. (We were afraid not to do this). Helen Burnett, vice president we made, For she was easy and sweet to look at, if sometimes Our president was not there. For treasurer we needed a bold, brave One who could hypnotize our Seniors And take from them their coin. So we thought how doubly qualified was one, Named Julius Frick, and him we gave this office. Now these be times of war, And secretaries must be chosen Who can write notes galore And get away with them. Smooth must their language be And flowing like a spring. One who can do this and more, Is Dorothy Simering, our secretary and scribe. Next we looked about A motto somewhere to find, In this we soared high And bade each other, now and ever- more " Be a Voice and Not an Echo " here below. We wanted colors for our class, And here our brave young men Demanded that cerise, the flame of war, Should decorate our ranks; ah! — but no, Our wiser counsel ruled them down. Old rose we wore, as soft and soothing to our minds, And not inciting riots or anarchistic thoughts. We finished our regalia with a pin and armband We could wear on Ivy Day. The pin designed by Glossbrenner, The armlet by George Mess, both fine artistic souls, Of whom we ' re mighty proud. There is no flower under heaven So fine as Madame Schawyer ' s Rose. And, as we would have nothing but the best, We sought this out from all the rest. Then came all the parties, all the dances and the like, First among them was the hike And oh ! such matchless eats — quan- tity not limited. Next in line was Ivy Day. Then we handed on The courtesy extended to us last term, And invited the June class to view us in all the glory Of our new insignia. Then came the Penal Party, which I am sure we all enjoyed. Continued on page 8 THE BOOSTER Alphabetum— By Fred Glossbrenner Before I start This bunch of nonsense Let no good fellow Take any offense.

A tile drinking fountain, to be placed in the main corridor of the new Manual Annex, is to be the gift of the January ' 17 class. The class, at a special meet- ing, December 10, decided to give the fountain instead of a Victrola or the rest of the series of King Arthur pic- tures. Benjamin Roberts, chairman of the gift committee, said that these three possibilities were thought the most practical gifts that had been sug- gested. • J Concluded from pa2fe 5 Poor George and Harold must needs be penalized. Nevertheless, they took their punish- ment like heroes. The next thing was the Roines Party, Which was also good to remember. Here, floated on our alert hearing Music, superb, enthralling, grand; And voice, and harmony we knew were rendered by These our friends: Mr. Faust, the Senior and Faculty quartettes And others whom ' tis a joy to hear. All our days we shall remember Our Class Play, with its characters so fine. And then, our Honor Roll With its increased numbers who have Their names thereon, deservedly; And Class Party on this our Class Day; Soon we shall hear something of our future From our famous Prophet, Ralph Proctor, And then Robert McMurray, our will- maker Will tell what we leave behind us. Last of all the things we shall remem- ber Is our Booster with its aims so splen- did, its high ideals And its desire to bring out next year an Annual, And so we bid you adieu, dear Class- mates. Our schooldays are at an end, And as we draw to the close These of Longfellow ' s words come to our minds: " Turn, turn my wheel! What is begun At daybreak, must at dark be done Tomorrow will be another day. Tomorrow the hot furnace flame Will search the heart and try the frame And stamp with honor or with shame These vessels made of clay. " THE CLA WILL ROBERT M C MURRY O Although we, the undersigned are extremely unwilling to leave this glorious school life, we are entirely willing to make a will and will here do so, having retained a very sound mind and memory through the ordeal. Do not consider us as being selfish and inhuman in taking away such a wealth of gray matter, knowledge, and so on; you will gain that eventually anyway. Besides, the effects bequeathed are in- valuable. To insure honest execution of this testament, we have appointed that most faithful servant, our own Miss Burnside, as administratrix, who shall execute the will without delay after our departure. Our effects are to be apportioned thus: First: To the class of January ' 18 we will our beloved teacher and sponsor, Miss Burnside. Secondly: We will to the Emmerich Manual Training High School Library two (2) sets of ten (10) volumes each of Louis Ewbank ' s now famous books on How to Argue. Thirdly: To the June ' 17 class we will a set of ropes with which to pull their curtains in the class play Fourthly: Victor Deitch ' s Latin pony is willed to the Freshman who shall need it most. Fifthly: To Everett Hughes we will one phonogra.ph record, entitled That Moanin ' Saxaphone Rag. Sixthly: John Davis ' shell-rimmed glasses are willed to the first Fresh- man who takes a back seat in Miss Starling ' s room. Seventhly: The mustache which adorns " Bob " Braggs ' upper lip is willed to supplement Hall Marmon ' s. Eighthly: Harold McNulty ' s com- manding stature is willed to Taylor Obold. Ninthly: The red wig which Ralph Proctor used as " Dinnis " is willed to " Bob " Peacher. Tenthly: Last, but not least, the limelight which shall be on us up to and during our departure is willed to be turned upon the June ' 17 class with the best wishes of January ' 17.
