Text from Pages 1 - 52 of the 1919 volume:

To K. V. Ammerman, whose years of unobtrusive but unceasing service, both as athletic manager and as adviser and instructor, have won our sincere admiration, this Senior Booster of the class of June ' 19 is affectionately dedicated. THE BOOSTER Mr. Ammerman Our popular manager of the ath- letics of the school, and head of our Commercial Department, K. V. Am- merman, was born on a farm in Hunt- ington County, Indiana, in the year 1880. Most of his education was received in Indiana schools. After having com- pleted courses in a number of schools of the state, he became a teacher. After teaching for a time, he took a post-graduate course in Marion Nor- mal College, and a penmanship course in the Zanerian School in Ohio. Mr. Ammerman was fitted by his educa- tion and experience to fill most satis- factorily the position of head of the Commercial Department of our own E. M. T. H. S. Before coming to Manual in 1911, Wabash High School had him as the head of its Commercial Department. In 1911, however, he became a mem- ber of our faculty for the first time. As head of a department here he has done much to make Manual known not only for the athletics and speak ers it produces, but also for its able graduates trained in real business methods and practice. There is no need now, as there probably was at one time, for a high school graduate June Class Plays This year ' s class departed from the usual custom of giving one long class play and presented instead two shorter plays, " The Merry, Merry Cuckoo, " and " The Gift. " The four perform- ances, at three and eight p. m., Thurs- day and Friday, May 22 and 23, were attended by audiences which taxed the capacity of the school auditorium. " The Meiry, Merry Cuckoo, " a sim- ple drama of Welch peasant life from the pen of Margaret Douglas Rogers, included a cast of five with Marcia Orme and Thomas Gallagher as Annie and David Dalben in the leading roles. Other members of the cast were Ro- ert Kryter who took the part of Mor- (Continued on page 3.) to enter a business college; for the same thing that is taught in business colleges is taught in our own school by competent teachers. Antiquated methods are not known in this de- partment. It is up to date and is supervised by an up-to-date man. But the great popularity Mr. Am- merman has, has not been gained in the class room alone. Many of us have never come in contact with him in the class room, yet we all know of him through his connection with the athletic teams of our institution. As business manager of our teams we can see the evidence of his work. Him- self a clean-playing and clean-living athlete, he (together with our coaches) has instilled into the players the love of clean sports and the dis- approval of unfair playing. This is the policy that will win out, and which has won out this year as never before. As students w e are probably in- clined to consider the members of our faculty as teachers only; we seem to f rget that they, like ourselves, have homes. In Mr. Ammerman ' s home there are two children, John and El- len, who, we hope, when they grow up, will come to Manual and perhaps be ' athletes and feel the fine spirit that their father has instilled in the student body. We are much more than glad to boast that Mr. Ammerman is a thor- ough Hoosier; and we think it entire- ly fitting and proper that an Indiana man, educated in Indiana schools, should stand as head of the Commer- cial Department of the best high school in Indiana.

Benny ' s Farewell to June Class Fellow Classmates: It is but natural for me to feel my own self importance and self insuffi- ciency on this momentous and dire- ful occasion; but as I seldom have recourse to the absurdity of apologiz- ing, I will continue to proceed w ith my discourse. Classmates, you are going out into a great reservoir of Roman liberty. You are to swing the flails of justice over this immense uni- verse, in hydraulic majesty and con- jugal superfluity. You are the mag- nificent triumphal arch on which will evaporate the even scales of justice and numerical computation. You are to ascend the deep arcana of nature and dispose of world problems with equiponderating concatenation, in ref- erence to the future velocity and re- verberating momentum. Such are your sedative and stimu- lating characters. You are all people of domestic eccentricity and matri- monial configuration, not permitted, as many are, to walk in the primeval and lowest vales of society; but you must endure the red hot sun of the universe on the heights of nobility and feudal eminence. You will no doubt all have beautiful wives, or hus- bands of horticultura l propensities, who will henpeck you the rest of your days with soothing and bewitching verbosity. You will no doubt all fContinued on page 4.] ris, the young minister, and Rose Rufli and Paul Stanley as Lowry and Guto Prichard. " The Gift, " the larger and more pre- tentious of the two plays, is based on the story of Pandora and the box. The leading parts were taken by Mar- garet Lostutter as Pandora and Burke Robison, who played the part of Epi- metheus. One of the most attractive features of the production was the dance of the Muses, a fantastic in- terpretation arranged and staged un- der the direction of Miss Anna Smith. The musical score of both plays was arranged and partly written by Mr. Winslow. Much credit for the success of the plays is due to Miss Perkins, who had entire charge of their pro- duction.

Our team easily won the sec- tional and then went to the state tournament. In this we were defeated by the state champions. Five mem- bers of the team are June seniors. Next, Manual triumphed over her competitors in the district and state discussion contests. The winner of these contests is a June senior. Along this line, the debating team, com- posed for the most part of seniors, broke even by winning one debate and losing one. Our track team next in line, won the sectional meet and finished third in the state, being nosed out by the narrow margin of one-third of a point. This team also had as a nucleus a group of seniors. The Roines and Masoma clubs have accomplished a great deal this year. With all these facts, who can doubt that JUNE, ' 19, is peer of them all? Credit for Booster? i " or the first time in history, the members of the Booster Staff have received credit for the work done. Is this fair? First, what is the Booster? Is it not a school project, like athletics or debating? Should there be credit the Booster work? Track is as hard, if not harder, than the Booster work. For the lat- ter the student receives credit, for the former he does not. If credit is given for one, why not give credit for both? If the students have too little pride to work for the school without credit, they should not be allowed to stay within its walls. With this issue, Volume twenty-one of the Booster is brought to a close. Next year there will be a complete change of staff, with Walton Cash at the head. Because we have had ex- perience along the Booster line, we bespeak for Walton your hearty co- operation.

Sometime, seated in some lovely re- treat in the back yard, beneath the shadowy shades of an umbrageous tree, you will gather round you your wife or husband and the rest of your orphan children. You will there take a retrospective view upon the diagram of futurity, and cast your eye like a flashing meteor forward into the past. Seated in their midst, aggravated and exhaled by the dignity and indepen- dence coincident with honorable pov- erty, your countenances irrigated with intense glows of self-deficiency and ex- communicated knowledge, you will quietly turn to instruct your lit- tle assemblages. You will endeavor to distill into their minds, useless les- sons to guard their juvenile youths against immortality. There, on a clear sunny evening, when the silvery moon is shining forth in all her indulgence and ubiq- uity, you will teach them the first sediments of geometry, by pointing out to them the bear, the lion, and many other fixed invisible consterna- tions which are continually revolving in their bearings, through the blue cerulean fundamu? above. From this (Continued on page 9) THE BOOSTER Athletics By Frank Cox Athletics During the Year — 1918-19. In an article published in the first edition of the Booster last fall, two sectional winning teams (in basket- ball and track) were predicted for Manual ' s athletic card during the pres- ent school year. Last Saturday, run- ning true to form, the track squad fulfilled this prophecy by winning the sectional track meet at the fair grounds; for earlier in the spring the basketball team had accomplished its end of the program. So in reviewing the athletics of the school year one can easily see that to date they have been extremely suc- cessful; never in the school ' s history have there been two sectional win- ning teams in any one season. Basket ball opened up with a rush last fall, there being 219 boys enrolled in the various monogram teams. Due to the enforced " Flu " vacation the league games were never finished, but a squad of 28 was picked from the showings made, which comprised the state team basket ball squad. The reg- ular schedule opened the 8th of No- vember and lasted until the team was eliminated at the State Tourney in the second round of play the 9th of March. Two teams were carried during the en- tire season and comparative scores show how successful this experiment was. Out of 26 games played by the first team, 18 were won, with the team scoring some 654 points to their oppo- nent ' s 412. A most remarkable fea- ture of the team ' s success was the fact that in the local sectional tourney only 7 field baskets were registered by the opposing four teams played. Rice led the season ' s scoring with 56 field baskets. Conn registered 31 before he left school in January. Secrest rang up 43, Jamison 38, Bybee 37, Keckler 29, O ' Connor 16, Wertz 11, Harmeson 8, and Cox 6. The second team also played wonderful ball, winning the city championship by not losing a game to either Shortridge or Tech during the season. They won 9 out of 11 games played, scoring 263 points to their opponents ' 129. Out of this squad, a nucleus for another success- ful school team is left for next sea- son. Our Track Team Newt Dodge tried about every event in track and field work, but majors in the high jump and high hurdles. He had bad luck at the sectional, getting a bad start in the hurdles, and tying for second in the jump, but lost out while jumping off the tie. Newt has other stuff if he gets down and works. We lose him to Purdue this year. Harry Baldauf is a hard-working man and has had the most successful track season of his career. He shows up best in the high hurdles, high jump and javelin throw. " Baldy " graduates this year. Frank Messing needs no introduc- tion. He is a star dash man and low hurdler. He, with Frank Garten, won the state meet two years ago. He is going to hum things up over at Illi- nois next year. Albert Jamison is young, but he sure steps the 220 and the 100-yard dashes when he is in good condition. He will be back in school next year. Tubby O ' Conner has been at it again; losing iron balls. He sure will be missed next year when the roll is called. Gardner is a half-miler of no mean ability. He has the right spirit and Continued on page 8 In reviewing the track season, Man- ual ' s winning team has won all her meets, seven straight, and has a fair show to place high in the state. There is no team in the state strong enough to defeat the squad in a dual meet be- cause of its even balance in all events in both track and field. While the meet at Richmond was not won be- cause of the lack of phenomenal men on the squad, the fact still remains that Manual has the best balanced track team in the state. In another week the baseball city championship series will be started at Washington Park, and Manual ex- pects to run true to form by giving the other teams entered something to do if they win over her fighting bunch of ball tossers. So taking our share in the breaks of Dame Fortune, we as a school have had a wonderful athletic school year. THE GIFT THE MERRY, MERRY CUCKOO THE BOOSTER Class Play Chatter. Every time this particular season of the year drags around, it is cus- tomary for the Booster grin artists to sling a pint or two of ink about the class play. We kinda forget just what we said on the subject last year, which makes it rather inconvenient, as we ' ll probably have to think a lit- tle. Class Play is a semi-annual disease which attacks high school students in the second term of their senior year. The first symptoms are sudden and violent attacks of oratory, coupled with ejaculation of such startling ex- clamations as, " Annie, I hear the cuckoo singinV In the more advanced stages of the disease, the victim develops a variety of that well known malady, " Domus Magnus, " together with a marked ex- pansion of the respiratory organs. Such attacks, however, are easily checked in their incipiency by the ap- plication of a little cold water, and are never serious unless accompanied by " writeups " in the papers and great publicity through the Booster. And now for the final and most seri- ous period: The patient becomes a victim of alternating chills and fever. Much uneasiness is apparent. He be- comes addicted to the use of such ex- clamations as, " Hazel, is my hair on straight? " and " Gee! wonder if they ' ve got a big crowd tonight? " He realizes that the time has come to kill or cure. Which it has. We thank you. Just before the final performance Friday night, somebody switched off the lights in the property room, and when they came on again, Clyde Pierce found, very much to his dis- gust, that he was holding hands with Elliott Hume. Cheer up, Clyde, it could have been worse. ' Spose, f ' rin- stance, it was Cox or Robison. Mr. Holloway was at first very much disappointed at the apparent absence of the Welsh rabbit in " The Merry, Merry Cuckoo. " He insisted that no Welsh play could be a suc- cess without such a decoration, and seemed greatly worried about it until our esteemed friend, Brother Winslow, pointed out the fact that the wig Tom Gallagher was wearing was a genuine Welsh hair. The slight delay in getting the first (Continued on page 8) 8 THE BOOSTER [Continued from page 51 if he retains this, he will be a man all Manual will be proud of. Orville Spear is a scrappy little dash man and hurdler. He works very hard and should cut quite a fig- ure in Athletics. Hans Geiger has kept right on Tub- by ' s heels in the shot-put. He will be lost through graduation. Harmeson looks like another Gar- ten in the pole vault; he tries hard, and usually gets there. Next year he will help form the back-bone of Track and Basketball. " Clint " Whitney is a very speedy dash man and broad jumper. He will be a big help to the track team next year. " Bill " Stewart is a fighting distance man, and has the grit to hold on and never quit. Jimmie Sommers leaped into the limelight this year. He can always be depended upon to place in the broad-jump. Hough ' s size is quite a bit of a handicap to him, but he makes up for this in determination. He ' ll stay quite a while in the pole vault. Sparks, the man with the lusty lungs, makes good use of them in the quarter-mile. Wurster is a newcomer in track this year. He runs a very good quar- ter mile. He will develop into a first class track man if he stays with it. Manual ' s track season came to a creditable close at Richmond Satur- day, May 24, when our boys placed third in the State Track Meet. Craw- fordsville won with 16 points. Nobles- ville nosed out Manual for secondary honors, 9 1-3 to 9. Manual without a doubt could have defeated any other high school in the state, but was with- out enough stars to win the state meet. Messing took first in the low hurdles in great style. Harmison placed sec- ond in the pole vault, and O ' Conner third in the shot-put. Speer was nosed out of a place in the 220 by a very slight margin and all members of the team showed up well. Cox.

S. A. There is a great school, yes, great every way; Here Mr. Charles Emmerich first to to rule, And Emmerich Manual ' s the name of the school. Miss Beatrice Foy in nineteen and nine, Started the planting of the small ivy vine So that each class, might do its full share To make the school ' s walls, more green, and fair. To those two friends, who were ever so true: Our cherished Ivy Day, then, is due. Miss Foy, who lived her life for such as we, Charles Emmerich, who gave to us ungrudgingly, Today we have planted our ivy vine, O belov ' d school, may thou and thine Grow like this vine — and work to- gether, And bear all the storms of wind and weather. When these two friends have in si- lence long slept, And the beautiful ivy has upward crept, Thy walls will be wrapt in the ivy green, And their names and works will like- wise be seen. Dear Emmerich Manual for you we hold A love so strong ' twill never grow old. In our lives all these years you have had such a place That the future can never your mem ' ry efface. Anna Gowen.

THE BOOSTER 9 Ivy Poem From out the shadows of the earth ' s dark gloom, Shall rise, anon, to greet the morning sun, This Ivy vine, and bursting into bloom Rise upward e ' er its fight with life begun. Its battle is to scale the schoolhouse wall, And in its efforts it will never stop, Until, when it receives the final call, It clings, serene, victorious atop. How like to this symbolic plant are we Who leave behind, eftsoon, our school, to view A greater world, upon whose form I see A prophecy of trials and triumphs new. Up from the evening of youthful past, We view the sunrise of life ' s greater morn; And in its aural light there is fore- cast A noble hope, of ceaseless effort born. As, on the threshold of a larger day, We seek but opportunity to test The lessons we have learned, and swift essay To scale endeavor ' s bold and rugged crest. And rising ever upward, we full fast Shall seize our fair ideals, one by one, And pledging them to life ' s best use, at last Stand conquering on the heights, at- tainment won.

" 10 THE BOOSTER Class Prophecy By Crawford Barker After having written 3,964 8 15 books which were returned from the 1-unk and Rotten Publishing Company marked, " worse than our name, " I feel that I was at last well fitted to write the prophecy of the June, ' 19, class. As this job was wished on me, in a like manner I wish it back to the wishers who first did the wishing. Before I " let you in " on your future, I warn you to keep your seats and hold all cabbage for the finish as I have five patrols, twenty-four policemen, thirteen detectives, and six janitors under the leadership of Mr. Money to keep order. Outside, I have twenty-three ambulances, nine nurses, eight hearses and four stretcher-bearers to take care of the maimed and dead who attempt to overthrow Mr. Money ' s army and get revenge for my pre- dictions. I dedicate this to Mr. Sullivan, our noted and wayward janitor who has not been himself since the State went dry. If everybody will close his eyes I will do a little Thurston stunt and carry you forward with me twenty years. " Illinois and Washington street, transfer to Kokomo, Tipton, Brazil, Fal- mouth, Terre Haute and Five Points. " I looked around to see who was making all the racket, and there was John Stickle, more lanky, and thinner than he wa 3 when he graduated from Manual . After a little conversation I learned he had had hard luck, for his wife had died and left fourteen children on his hands. He had worked hard for the past five years for the street car company and by close economy and fair dealings with the company (he gave them at least % the daily receipts) he had saved $50,000 and was promised 3%c more on the month, which was to begin one year from the following Xmas. As I got off the front of the car there was handsome Louis Hensley in a stunning motor- man ' s outfit. I was talking to him when his wife, formerly Irene Kurman, stepped up on the cow-catcher, kissed him goodbye, and handed him his lunch. Louis turned seven different colors, and with a clanging of the bell he put his car into high for his return trip to Crown Hill, nearly running down Harry Bal- dauf, who was carrying a billboard, advertising Oyster Frank. I picked Harry up and buckled his sign-board back into place while he told me that Harold Naegle, Robert Marsnall, and Donald Birge were in the same business with him. I started to catacorner across the street, but was hailed by Burk Robison who was turning " go and stop " signs for a living. When he saw who I was he wanted to call the wagon, so I hopped on the running board of a passing taxi. I looked to see who was driving, and there sat Wilson Churchman. He told me he was driving for the Harry Harrel Taxi Company. Thanking him for sav- ing me, I jumped off in front of the Park Theatre. There I bought a 34c seat (30c war tax, 4c for the seat) and walked in. Bertram Kurman was taking tickets and Art Patterson, Lowell Sparks and Harry Stillman were ushering. After moving fifteen times, the ushers finally got me in the right seat. While waiting for the orchestra to come out, I noticed a popcorn and pea- nut vender, who was selling Geiger ' s Cream Vanilla Bars. I looked closer and saw it was Clair Ingalls, who was trying to pass a lunch check on a blind man. My attention was drawn to the entrance of the orchestra who made a quick rush for their seats and tuned up on " Turkey in the Straw. " After they had groaned this out the director bowed to the audience; he was Myron Buker. He got excited and gave the signal for the raising of the curtain too soon. With my quick eye I saw three stage hands — William Bush, Russell Shew and Paul Kervan — sneak out through the wings, after knocking down half of the scenery. Well, the show finally started. It was named " 10 Nights in a Bevo Palace, " given by the Red Engle Stock Company. I saw no more, for I was aroused by a harmonious discord on " Old Black Joe, " as Margaret Lostutter stepped out upon the stage disguised as Little Eva, an orphan girl. William Engle, the manager, played the heavy, as Foxy Grandpa. He played his part well, consid- ering that his whiskers fell off four times and his wig wouldn ' t stay straight. After a little nonsense the chorus, composed of Harriet Nichols, Edna Plaskett, Yette Rothbard, Celia Hirshovitz, Francs McAlpin, Pearl Goldman and Caro- THE BOOSTER 15 Class Hi story By Pauline Lewis INTRODUCTORY. As censor in the E. M. T. H. S. Cadet office I came across a group of letters entitled " Us Seniors " which were writ- ten by James Agamemnon Montgom- ery II, to a friend who formerly at- tended this high school. Out of mere curiosity I read them and found they contained in a more or less complete form the history of the June, 1919 Class. It is by special permission from the authorities that I am privil- eged to read you these letters. I might remark out of justice to the writer, that all the foolish, sentimental — and therefore unnecessary — parts of the letters have been omitted. Here at Manual. Sept. 9, 1918. Dear Katie: Seniordom at last! It is evident that June ' 19 will be a class of won- ders, for even on the first day all the fortunates who have at last reached the dazzling heights were here with just oceans of " pep " and with the sole intention of making this the best year ever. Expect a note when some- thing exciting happens. Yours in high hopes, Jimmie. Herewhereiam. Nov. 5, 1918. Dear Katie: Of course you won ' t ask me why I haven ' t written for you ' re aware of the fact that I ' ve been fashionable like the rest of the Seniors and had the " flu. " No school for four weeks! As I was going to say, a senior class must have officers — especially one as prominent as June ' 19; so on Novem- ber 5 we organized under the ever- faithful guidance of Miss Knox. Af- ter the formality of reading the con- stitution was over, we looked around our promising organization for a presi- dent. Miss Knox, in a short but stir- ing speech, told us the qualifications of an efficient leader and then — his- tory was made. When some thought- ful person said " I nominate Newton Dodge, " we chartered an adding ma- chine and proceeded to count the votes. Of course h was elected and everyone was jubilant. You remem- ber Newt — don ' t you, who came here from Quincy high school a year ago? — Newt, the basket ball and track star. He also happens to be a survivor of Manual ' s Co. X— those knitters of long ago. His knitting needles may be seen in the trophy case any day. Our versatile president has but one weak point. To think that he ' d rather spend lunch hour at Shortridge than down here! Perhaps he goes up there for the exercise? Newt is also the proud owner of a Hungarian cheesehound which bears the inelegant name of " Bevo. " We had our first out-of- town basket-ball game with the Rip- ple, and sent them back with a 40-2 score. Shocking isn ' t it? Peace was declared recently and we had one ' lil celebration. Everything survived but the drum— but that didn ' t matter. Must glance over my dear Latin now, so Yours with happiness, Jim. In the Library. Dec. 5, 1918. Dear Katie: Startling things have happened since my last note! Yes, we had a second vacation of 2 weeks. The sen- iors were heart-broken. It was amus- ing to see how the girls rebelled against the " flu " masks. Girls are so vain. Nevertheless since we were all " knights of the midnight oil " we took our books home. Seniors are so studious! Now, Katie, a new or- ganization has sprung into existence down at Manual under the nom-de- plume of the " Victrola Quartette. " They ' re really a relic of the Metro- politan Opera House, but we don ' t dare tell them. At the first meeting of these promising warblers, Mr. John Rice, famous basketball star was elected president. Joey and Malcolm are his noble assistants, and Mr. John Bane Stickle is Lieut-Janitor. This talented foursome will make its ini- tial bow in " Southport Sobs, " a light operetta, full of pathos, which is com- posed, staged, managed ' n everything by the well-known Mr. Rice. This gives us something to worry about. No, it was not until December 3 that we proceeded to elect the remainder of our officers. At this critical mo- 16 THE BOOSTER ment in our history the Cox-Rice ma- chine, the revival of the Bell-Parrott regime, organized to assist in the elec- tion. To our joy, Ruth Smock carried off the honors for vice-president and we chose Peggy Kern for secretary. Now, for this class of ours we knew a tall treasurer would never do, so we unanimously selected John Bane Stickle — the Little Fat Rascal— for this office. So far — so good, and now with our officers elected and commit- tees appointed, June T9 is planning to step out as no senior class ever did. Yours with joy, Jimmie. P. S. — Marion Loutt has the " Iowa Blues. " In the Aud. Dec. 21, 1918. Dear Katie: A perfectly wonderful week! On last Friday the June ' 19 ' s assembled for the nerve racking task of select- ing a class color. With great elo- quence the girls demanded a color of prominence — one that could be seen at a great distance, and that adver- tised the fact that we were seniors. The boys pleaded for cerise, begged for navy blue, demanded apricot — but all in vain. The girls just wouldn ' t yield; so we allowed them to select burnt orange. Of course we know now it is the only color. A battalion flag was presented recently and even the most critical girls declared we made a wonderful showing. I have been advanced to a corporal. Expect to be in charge of a company by com - mencement time. Manual played Co- lumbus today. Defeated them 26-22. Talk about sky-scrapers! Gerehardt on the Columbus team made the Lit- tle Fat Rascal look short. Yours for fun, Jim. P. S. — I forgot. Some noble soul suggested that the Seniors, have a get- together party in the gym. To be sure it was a success! But it does make us a little jealous to see " Carty " walk away with all the girls, while we ' re wall-flowers. Something I al- most forgot. Another bomb ' s ex- exploded. There are some folks in room 10 who did not believe the Vic- trola Quartette furnished sufficient entertainment for the music-loving world so they organized the Agony Quartette, with special emphasis on the Agony. Sig. Verg Gebaurer is the manager, apparently; Cecil Harmon, the very picture of tragedy, sings bass when he ' s in the notion; J. Clark Hale serves in the capacity of an ornament; and Benny Jordan — formerly Caruso ' s boot-black, is the fourth agonizer. We wish them well -this Rusty Hipge Four as Harrv Herrell puts it. Jim. Degrees Centigrade. Jan. 6, 1919. Dear Katie: New year ' s is over and " Us Seniors " have made up the entirety of our loss of sleep in the " Solid " class. Poor Mr. Sanders threatened to rebel. But you should have been at the Canoe Club and heard Carter Samson Bellen- bach firmly resolve never to neglect his lessons for the girls as he has done all this year! " Carty " is a very talented person as is shown in ' Court- ing in Cloverdale " — his latest literary contribution. There ' s a rumor out, down at school, that Malcolm and Rob- ert recently acquired some feminine friendships down at Huntington. Oh, I must tell you about our most recent election. You know a Senior class can ' t go on forever without a yell leader, so we elected one. Our class detective says that Titian blonds have a wonderful ability for leading yells, so the Cox-Rice faction nominated our old friend, Byron Mathews. That ended it. Dude smiled graciously and the meeting ended with 9 for June — and we made ' em big. Nuf said. Sincerely yours, Jim. P. S. — History was made today — Blanche Brattain only blushed once, and Paddy Plaskett knew her Civics. Manual of course, Jan. 29, 1919. Dear Katie: These last two weeks have been a perfect scream. First, on Jan. 10, we enjoyed a little " hop " given by " Us Seniors " in honor of the January ' s. Everything turned out " grand and glorious. " And to think we dignified Seniors played " Farmer ' s in the Well! " Can you grasp it? " We were expecting some noble selections from the Victrola Quartette but Johnny took a sudden spell of bashfulness and couldn ' t be coaxed to sing.

We leave the school, and wish in it permanently installed, the spirit to win which it has been our fortune to posses during the last year. Second. We leave, to grace the shelves of our library, the thirteen volumes of the great masterpiece, written jointly by Dr. Carter Sanitary Bellenbach and Thomas Aquinaldo Gallagher, entitled, " Famous Actresses and How to Get Acquainted with Them. " Third. We leave the three seats in the office regularly occupied by J. T. Rice, George Keckler and Milton Brook Secrest, to those designated by one of the guardians of our great and glorious school law, Mr. Bertram Sanders. Fourth. We leave behind to Mr. Morrison, such men as Albert Jamison, William Wurtz, Emil Harmison and Orville Spear, and others whom he may mold into another winning basketball team. Fifth. We leave the excess weight of the fat little rascal, J. Bane Stickle, to skinny Alex Levinson. Sixth. We leave to Roy Geider the private graveyard in which dangerous William Engle buried the victims of his terrible knife, among them Verne K. Reeder. Seventh. We leave the razor used by Newt. Dodge and Robert O ' Conner to some one who can appreciate such a device. Eighth. We will to Burk Robison the painting of Margaret Lostutter, en- titled, " Pandora, " painted by Hans Geiger. Ninth. We leave to Glenn Kingham, the job, abandoned by the Reeder- Robison Detective Agency, of finding the persons who murdered the cherry pie at the Glossbrenner residence on the night of April 27th. Tenth. We will to the school $6,000,000 to pay for dishes, legs, chairs, doors, b asketball black boards, the ceilings of various gymnasiums over the state, and various other things destroyed by Bob O ' Conner. Eleventh. We leave to Bashful George Glossbrenner, Mr. O ' Conner ' s abil- ity to get acquainted with strangers. Twelfth. We leave to Walton Cash the filing cabinet, used by Goebel O ' Nan, in which he may keep the names of the fair beauties whose hearts he has broken. Thirteenth. We will to Crawford Barker and Vera Maple, J. T. Rice and Ruth Smock, $5,000 with which they may take a trip to Niagara Falls. Fourteenth. We leave J. Clark Hale ' s wrist watch to some good, good- looking girl. Fifteenth. We leave to Mr. Rice also the Scanlon Memorial Gymnasium, two hundred feet long, and a small cannon with which he may shoot long ones to his heart ' s content. Sixteenth. We leave to Mr. Money the monkey cage occupied by Harry Davis and Crawford Barker, and the arena used for the fights of Stickle and Royce Wright. Seventeenth. We give Marion Loutts ' entire fleet of aeroplanes and air castles to Mexico. Eighteenth. We leave to the coming classes the loyal, hard-working spon- sors — Miss Knox, Miss Burnside, and Mr. Money. Nineteenth. We give our heartiest appreciation to the other teachers who have helped make the history of the class a successful one. Twentieth. We appoint Mr. E. H. K.

It breaks up the class spirit and causes the class to become labeled a lazy one. Second. Al Glossbrenner ' s blazing tie, gaudy plaid shirt, and dreadnaught shoes. Third. Tommy Gallagher ' s hot blue serge cap. It breaks too many hearts. Fourth. The Agony Quartette. It has caused enough suffering. Fifth. Bill Engle ' s tragic voice, airy manner, imposing countenance and eloquent nose. Sixth. Glen Campbell ' s red baseball shirt. It ' s too much camouflage.

You ' d never know the difference though — Louis is so quiet and unassuming about his promotion. Some more persons have stepped into the lime-light this week.

Dear Katie: We know that somewhere in the ranks of our brilliant class we must find someone to shape the destiny of each of its members. It is a well known fact that everyone admires the skill with which Crawford Barker is planning his own future — so who could possibly make a better class prophet. (Applause). Tournament time again! Remember all those good times at Martinsville last year? The sec- tional was held at Tomlinson Hall. We sure were proud of our team, and when they paraded out with their red and white blankets the crowd went wild. Helen Carter got terribly ner- vous whenever anyone remarked about what a " dear " smile " Zeke " had. Most of the games were slow and lacked interest but the Manual-Short- ridge game created some excitement. Of course we won! Foolish question. The Red and White team just pranced upon the floor and defeated them in whirlwind fashion. The Monday Echo printed the following: For Sale or Give-away: One Horse-Shoe — See Woody for particulars. Nevertheless an excellent spirit still exists between Manualites and Shortridgers as is shown by the fact that Harold Vorhees and Esther Schmidt only quarreled three times that night. Rare occasion! Speaking of celebrations, there never was anything like the one Monday when we showed our team some real school spirit. Now for the State Meet! Yours for Victory, Jim. P. S. — Some innocent " freshie " asked where Ruth Smock got her red carnation. Imagine it???? March 15, 1919. Dear Katie: Yes, we lost — but it took the state champs to beat us — of course!

Anna Gowens, June ' 19 ' s mascot was recently elected class poet. Now for class play tryouts. Now, with spring here, we turn our attention to athletics. This Interclass meet at the " Y " brought out a real bunch of athletes. Seniors won, of course. It will certainly be advisable to move the fountain at any ensuing meets, for Tom Gallagher used up too much energy walking to and from his thirst-quenching expeditions. Glen Campbell in the skipping pole vault was a sight we all marvelled at. Likewise did Dick Johnson thrill us in the shot-put. Wonder athletes. Louis Hensley appeared in a new lid. Very happily yours, James. Baseball teams have been organized again. This promises to be an un- usual season — especially for the car- dinals since the have the dignified Donald Euphronius Burge — Manual ' s ' Babe " Ruth — for a captain. March 28, 1919. Dear Katie: Just one more note before vacation. Yes, Peggy Lostutter and Burke got the leading parts in the play — that is " The Gift. " Tom and Marcia have the lead in the Welch play. Louis Hensley did a great service to humani- ty today by handing down his Physics II notebook. That ' s charity in the broadest token. Dexheimer was our choice. Poor Mess and Baldy just begged for Nicholson. They have a studio at Waikiki — I mean Norfolk beach — you know. This is all — now for hikes, picnics, dances ' n every- thing. Yours for a good time, Jimmie. P. S. — " Carty " never has been the same since he went to see the " Fol- lies. " The Eta-Bita Pie Sorority, the most disastrous organization at Manual, recently gave a recital for the benefit of the " Home for the Harmless.

" We predict a briliant future for this member. April 22, 1919. Dear Katie: June ' 19 follows the custom of the other Senior Classes by celebrating its Ivy Day last Friday. We planted our vine toward the north of the build- ing and we sang and yelled enough to make any ivy vine grow— much less one planted by June ' 19. Then we filed down into the aud. for our programme which was very impressive. This ended our Ivy Day — June ' 19 ' s Ivy Day. I ain ' t goin ' to use bad English no more cause this is good English week. And " Us Seniors " have been selling tags and helping in every pos- sible way to boost the campaign. Miss Perkin ' s class gave us a clean little play, " Almost Everyman, " in which Al- fred Wall, one of June ' 19 ' s lady ' s men, was the star. The Red and White is sure having its share of vic- tories for we not only defeated Green- castle in a debate but also won the track meet against Crawfordville and the North Side High School. Han ' s car was slightly crowded when it left Willard Park. We just had one good time at the dance Room 29 gave for the seniors. Marguerite says she ' s very fond of dark complexioned lieu- tenants.

It was just glorious — that ' s all. Tuesday we— that is seniors — went to Tomlinson Hall to help prepare lunches. Talk about eats!! Just ask Mess about it. To be sure Tubby was there. He says the only thing as good as angel- food is more angel-food. Poor child was embarrassed to death when a piece of cake fell out of his pocket at Keith ' s that afternoon. Anna told us about it. I suppose Tubby has heard about " the best-laid plans of mice and men. " Class play rehearsals are wonderful, they say. ' Tis said the coaches, musicians, and muses nine had one little spread Friday evening. The girls say Ida Waltz and Bertha Newman made the best punch. The goddesses had a regular feast and poor gods were slighted. They just had the best time that night and aside 24 THE BOOSTER from the fact that the lightning didn ' t come on quick enough, everything is near perfection and we know June ' 19 will stage the best play ever. Excitedly yours, Jim. May 20, 1919. Dear Katie: The last lap! Can it be possible that our Senior year is nearly over? I am quite sure, however, that if you would search this broad land over you would never find a happier Senior class than ours and now as our com- mencement draws nearer and nearer we appreciate more and more all these friendships we have acquired during our four years. I am sure our whole class feels its indebtedness to all those who have been so eager to pro- mote our class activities and thus helped to make this our happiest year at Manual. Yours with happiness, Jim. Lieutenant Campbell says he has a crack platoon. We presume that he includes even the lieutenant as cracked. But now dear readers, We wish you to note That those big-headed seniors, Were once in our boat. —Freshmen. Poor Newt Dodge.

' .■ j I I ■ The January ' 19 Class affectionately dedicates this issue of the Booster to " Shorty " who has placed the old school back into the limelight of athletics. THE BOOSTER Mr. Morrison. Mr. R. G. " Shorty " Morrison was born away out in the woolly west in the late eighties. To be more exact, he hails from South Dakota. From the start he was of a studious mind; also he had athletic ambitions. He received his high school training at the Kansas City high school. It was while going there that he won the one-half mile state track record. " Shorty " kept his record while going through high school and Kansas City University. In fact, it was eleven years before it was broken. Coach Morrison was also on the Kansas City University varsity football team for three years. He was never on the var sity basket ball team because he was too " short. " After graduating, Mr. Morrison started his career as a coach for the University. After that he coached the Kansas City high school basket ball team. The first year of Coach Morrison ' s guidance brought that high school a tri-state championship. This championship was held for three years. From Kan- sas City Mr. Morrison came to E. M. T. H. S., as a teacher of botany, in 1916. In the spring of 1917 Mr. Mor- rison assumed the responsibility of coaching our track team. As every- one knows and to everyone ' s satisfac- tion, he coached into form the team that won the Indiana state track and field meet at Lafayette. In 1917-18 he also coached our basket ball team. With only one veteran on the squad, Coach Morrison rounded out a won- derful scoring combination. Then our 1918 track team again took " Shorty ' s " attention. He determined to win the state meet two successive years. This ambition would have been realized had it not been for a regret- table accident to " Chops " Garten while pole-vaulting. This year Mr. Morrison is again coaching our bas- ket bailers, but with a much better prospect than ever before. So far the team has been doing top-notch work. Our expectations are a team that will carry off the honors at Bloomington, and an aggregation that will again bring back the state track and field meet trophy at Lafayette. If our ambitions are realized, it will be Coach Morrison who is directly re- sponsible. Let us say in conclusion, that the students who are leaving Mr. Morri- son ' s influence will always remember Attention, Girls! Do you know that the City Normal School offers to high school graduates a two years ' course in preparation for the teaching profession? No tuition, and the necessary books are fur- nished. The work given is made in- teresting and enjoyable. The Normal School is recognized as a school of high standards and col- lege credit is given for the work done. There is a constant demand for trained teachers. The entrance ex- aminations are to be given January 30 and 31. If you have not already regis- tered consult Miss Webster of the Normal School at Ashland avenue and 13th street, on Monday afternoons or Thursday morning, January 30. We cordially invite you to visit our school at your convenience. Louise Gramse, June, ' 17. Alice Thau, Jan., ' 18. Gladys Davis, Jan., ' 18. Clara Huevel, Jan., ' 18. Seniors of Normal. The Alumni Association. The Alumni Association always meets once a year on the Friday of the last week of school in the school building, and anyone who has grad- uated may become a member by pay- ing membership dues of fifty cents. Always keep that date open and come and see your friends once more. The officers of the association are: President, Mr. Charles Dyer; vice- president, Miss Olma Steeg; secre- tary, Mr. Edward Holloway; treas- urer, Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb. These officers with the executive com- mittee held a meeting January 14, 1919, at which a Memorial to Miss Foy was discussed. It is desired that each member of the Alumni be given an opportunity to take part. Part of this Memorial is to be given by the present student body of the school. This matter will be more ful- ly discussed on the afternoon of the school birthday, and the outcome will be published later. HAZEL HARMENING. him as a teacher, as a comrade, as an advocate of clean, upright sports- manship, and a friend in the best sense of the word. THE BOOSTER January ' 19, Celebrate Ivy Day. Back in 1909, Miss Foy suggested to a graduation class that they plant an ivy vine against Manual ' s wall to signify that as the years passed by, their memories of the school would, like the ivy vine, become stronger. Since then, each January and June class has planted an ivy vine to climb Manual ' s wall. The day set aside for this is called Ivy Day. And so, on November 8, the Jan- uary, ' 19, seniors planted their ivy. It was on rather short notice, don ' t you think, with everyone just recovering from four weeks ' vacation on account of the " flu. " But the January, ' 19 ' s came back with just as much pep as ever. This was the day when the banner was first shown. It has the name of the class on it, with the motto " Carry on. " In choosing this motto, the class was right in the spirit of the times. " Carry on, " is the favorite war motto of the English. The Ivy Day exercises were given in the auditorium during the seventh and eighth hours. President Finley Wright presented the ivy to the school and Mr. McComb accepted it. In his speech, he emphasized the suitability of our motto. He also explained to the class the responsibility the future placed upon them. Our ivy song was adapted from a Butler College song and Belle Ros- ner wrote our ivy poem. The second ivy song was one that had been written by Herbert Green, a 1914 graduate who is represented by a gold star in our service flag. The flowers were sent to Miss Foy ' s grave to show our appreciation of her origination of the Ivy Day idea. This was a fitting close to the exercises. IVY SONG, In the gallery of memories There are pictures bright and fair, But we find that Emmerich Manual, Is the brightest one that ' s there. CHORUS. Emmerich Manual, how we lo »e you, With a love that ne ' er can fade, For we feel we owe a debt to you, That never can be paid. And today because we love you, We shall give our ivy vine, And it symbolizes, Manual, What we feel for thee and thine. Ivy Day Poem. (Belle Rosner) In the heart of a city there was a great school, Large buildings, great teachers, and all; Charles E. Emmerich it had for its principal, Gifted pupils were thronging its hall. A teacher, Miss Beatrice Foy by name, Said, " The walls of the buildings are bare. Let each class that departs plant a small ivy vine, In time all will be green and fair. " Mr. Emmerich assented. " In long years to come I hope I may look down and find Instead of the gray brick walls of to- day, One continuous ivy vine. " Both of these people are gone from us now, But their mem ' ries we ' ll cherish all time, And we hope we have honored their wishes today By planting this small ivy vine. May it cling to this school forever, aye, And tell her each day how we love her. May it thank her for all she has done for us, And show that we ' ll never forget her. Some boys think they ' re wise, Some girls think they ' re smart, But when you get to knowing them, Why, bang! there goes their heart. I ' ve ne ' er been there myself, I don ' t know what it means, For boys and girls do go on so When they ' re just in their young teens. Now there ' s many I could mention That have carried on just so: They rank down from our President To — oh, just so and so.

Now that we know we are going to leave our Manual so soon, we have an odd, unusual feeling that is un- precedented and inexplicable. It is like leaving a warm room with its roaring log fire on a cold, wintry night. We know we must go, yet we are loath to leave the warm radiance of our school comradeship. We are not anxious to enter the cold, blood- less, unsympathetic world; yet our own progress — even the progress of the world itself — demands that we leave the warm protection of our school, our Faculty and our Sponsors to enter the world of work that awaits us. A world that wants re- constructing and remodeling, and we must " carry on " the great, serious task that the boys have so efficiently begun. Many of us will not go di- rectly into the world, but will take on additional warmth to fight the world ' s big battle by posting and later by go- ing to colleges and universities. But always, back of all our achievements, will stand the grand old school that will make it all possible. Let us then rejoice that we shall so soon be able to add to Manual ' s name and fame, and push her " forward — on forever! " CARRY ON It is not the policy of the Booster to reprint editorials that have ap- peared elsewhere. Here, however, is an article by President Lowell, of Har- vard University, that is so very time- ly that we are offering it to you: " Remember that what you must do now is to develop your facilities while you are in college, and there is no place in the world for developing a man ' s faculties such as college. De- velop your intellectual faculties every inch. Develop your power of seeing clearly and thinking straight, and be- ing able to handle masses of facts. Make up your mind that whatever you do in life you will not be the second best if you can help it. Let us have no more of what used to be heard so much in the past, and which I think has been diminishing of late years, the feeling that college is a good place to have a good time, if you don ' t do any- thing. That is the poorest way to have a good time. The most thank- less thing to hunt is happiness. You never get it by hunting it. Happiness is a by-product of other things in life. It never comes from aiming at it. ( Continued on page 21 ) The curtain drops at the end of an- other volume of Boosters. In a few weeks it will rise again on a new scene, a new cast, and a better pro- duction. The stage manager, or, as we have come to know him, the Edi- tor-in-Chief, is to be Glen Campbell. Glen will make an ideal editor. He not only has a high scholastic record, but he is a member of the Roines Club, of the Forensic Club, and a First Lieu- tenant of Company I. We bespeak for Glen your hearty co-operation. We wonder what the class average would be, if at the end of five years, each member of the January class were to take a test in some subject he is studying now — Wouldn ' t they feel " cheap " ? THE BOOSTER THIXTIC D.C lJ.DERW ' tfOO MARTIN NESS, ATHLETIC EDITOR Boys ' Athletics. Athletics at E. M. T. H. S. started out at a rather slow pace this year. We had no athletic association, as we usually have, and many of the stud ent body lost interest. But that old, old adage about a poor beginning making a good ending seems to be coming true. There was an attempt to have a tennis tournament, to be conducted by Mr. Edward Holloway. Only a few players reported, however, and when the Spanish influenza began its inquisition, coupled with some bad weather, all the plans were aband- oned. Then our attention was called to the all-powerful subject of basket ball. This promised to be a banner year, because we had five of the old team with us. This year Coach Mor- rison organized a league of three teams to a division, one team from each floor. There were five divisions, namely: Majors, Sub-Majors, Minors, Midgets and Freshmen. The schedule was carried out for a while, and some very fast games were played. Then the state team candidates were withdrawn, and the league was never finished. Of the can- didates, five were old men — Jamison, Bybee, Conn, Cox, ex-Captain Rice and Captain " Zeke " Secrest. The team finally picked to represent our school is composed of Morris Conn, Charles Bybee, Frank Cox, Albert Jamison, George Keckler, Robert O ' Connor, John Rice, and Captain Brooks Se- crest. Coach Morrison has worked this bunch of huskies into a formid- able scoring machine, with an im- pregnable defense, as the scores of the games already played indicate. We have made 252 points to our op- ponents ' 187. The following is a list of games and the results: Broad Ripple, 2 Manual, 40 Shelbyville, 17 Manual, 32 Tipton, 43 Manual, 18 Crawfordsville, 14 Manual, 21 Girls ' Athletics. The athletic girls have a confession to make. For the first time since their organization they are guilty of having started something they could not finish. But you should not be too quick to condemn them, for the re- sponsibility for this failure rests upon one who has been guilty of many mis- demeanors. He is best known by his nickname, " Flu, " and as yet we have been unable to discover his real iden- tity. He put a stop to the tennis tournament, which was well organ- ized under the direction of Miss Herzsh. Next came the question of basket ball. The boys ' department in this field had expanded so greatly under Mr. Morrison ' s leadership that they had five divisions in the league. So, in order to promote the school ' s best interests, the girls ' league was con- densed, one evening a week being used, shorter games were played, and three games were played at a time instead of two. The major players were bunched on the first floor; this made the House plan for a tournament impracticable. So the girls were chosen into three groups and captains elected. Eliza- beth Mueller, Muriel Oliver and Frances McAlpin were given this hon- or and responsibility of managing three teams each. In choosing team colors, crimson was noticeably in dis- favor. The girls declare it has proved to be a hoodoo for several seasons. Elizabeth Mueller ' s team chose white for their color, Muriel Oliver ' s, blue, and Frances McAlpin ' s, green. Just now the tournament is at its height. In addition to the regular tourna- ment, Miss Smith organized a tourna- ment in the Gym. II class of the sev- enth and eighth hours. There are nine teams and each plays eight games. Kathryn Fisk ' s team leads, with Elizabeth Mueller ' s a close sec- ond. Many requests have been made by THE BOOSTER the girls of the school for military training, but because of inadequate space in the building or on the grounds, this has been postponed un- til the spring term. It is hard to tell whether it is be- cause many of our best athletes are on the first floor or whether the Eagle House has an unusually fine athletic spirit. At any rate, some athletic songs have appeared which prove that the girls are very much alive to the opportunities and possibilities of a real athletic spirit. The " Sassiety " notes of the January 1st issue of the Booster also leads us to believe that things are " didding. " So much for what has already been accomplished. The plans for the rest of the term include the annual bas- ket ball tournament, spring tennis, and a military pageant. Columbus, 22 Manual, 26. Alumni, 30 Manual, 56. Rochester, 9 Manual, 18. Huntington, 24 Manual, 22. Castleton, 26 Manual, 19. Tomorrow we journey to Anderson to take their measure. On February 7th Pendleton will lose their scalp to us at Pendleton. Then on the 15th Bedford meets us at the Y. M. C. A. On the 21st we will tarry long enough at Richmond to take them down a notch. On March 1st we have our last game before the sectional. This happens when we try Thorntown ' s metal at the Y. M. C. A. On March 7th and 8th comes the sectional tournament. It will be held at Tomlinson hall, and every loyal Manualite should turn out. Then a week later comes the final tournament at Bloomington. There is nothing that inspires and pushes a team on to victory as does a good backing. Everyone out to see these games! This means you, January, ' 19, seniors, and you, June, ' 18, grads, and all the alumni We want to and will make this our greatest basket ball year. Yea, Manual! Let ' s go! Recently Major Glossbrenner, in speaking to Company I, quoted John L. Sullivan. The quotation not only applies to military training, but to life: " Keep your head cool, your feet warm, your eyes open and your mouth shut and you ' ll get along all right. " THE TEAM Coach Morrison. Every day we hear words of praise for this player or that, but it is sel- dom that the coach comes in for his share of the credit. The explanation is simple. Ask any of the average basket ball fans who is the best man on the team, and almost invariably he will tell you, the man who scores the most points. The ave rage spec- tator sees only what occurs on the surface. When a clever play is well executed, he applauds the man who scores the goal and never stops to give credit to the master mind that devised that play and taught it to the team. All Manual ' s victories this year have been won on brains, and those brains are Coach Morrison ' s. At the games he is an inconspicuous fig- ure, standing in some obscure place on the side line. But the success or failure of the team upon the floor de- pends far more upon him than upon any other one individual. The Colum- bus game of January 21st is an inci- dent to prove the point. According to all the dope, Columbus was a mucn better team as far as fighting ability and endurance went. But Coach Mor- rison matched brains with brawn — and won. He studied the plays and players of the team and knew exact- ly where their vulnerable spot was, and how to reach it. He shifted our players into new positions to enable our best guard to stop the fast Co- lumbus floor guard. He put a man at center who could best stop the team wcrk of the opposing center, and the point-getting floor guard. In addition several brand new formations were used with telling effect. So — while we ' re passing around the plaudits, let ' s have nine for Shorty, and make ' em BIG. Captain Secrest. Brooks Secrest, June, ' 19, has been playing basket ball at Manual ever since he entered school here. He was prominent in league games during the earlier part of his high school career and last year was a regular on the state team. Owing to injuries received while playing baseball last summer, and illness this fall, Zeke got too late a start, but now that he is in condi- tion, is going like a whirlwind. There is probably no other man on the team who has mastered the essentials of THE BOOSTER OF E.M.TH.S. team playing so thoroughly as Secrest — a quick thinker and a master of " inside " basket ball. He also holds down the third sack on the baseball team, and is well known in local in- dependent baseball and football cir- cles. ing to run the affairs of the June class and singing tenor in the Vic- trola Quartet. John Rice. Johnny Rice, June, ' 19, better known to the owners of classbooks as " Just Plain Johnny, " has been prominent in Manual athletics ever since he came here four years ago. During his freshman year he was a star in the Major league. In 1916-17 he was a substitute on the first team, and last year he captained the team. Johnny counts that game lost whose final whistle blows before he counts a couple from the far end of the court. He has been the mainstay of the attack all through the present season. On the side Johnny manages the famous Victrola Foursome. Albert Jamison. Albert Jamison, June, ' 21, came to Manual last winter, from the West Side High School, of Lafayette. He played on the second team last year and was a member of the track squad in the spring. Jimmy is a fast for- ward and a sure shot. He shines par- ticularly at the long range work, but can also connect from under the bas- ket when necessary. He has devel- oped wonderfully under Coach Mor- rison ' s tutelage, and will be a valu- able man next year. Jimmy is immensely popular with the ladies, and is said to be an un- usually graceful performer at the higher form of athletics. Frank Cox. " Burr Top " Cox, June, ' 19, back guard, and political boss, skyrocketed his way from the Midget League in less than a year. Cox is a tower of strength on attack, and a stone wall in defense. He is always there in a pinch and he always packs with him the punch necessary to put the play across. While basket ball is his principal pastime, he is also said to be quite an accurate pool player, but he does not indulge in this sport frequently be- cause of the intense physical strain. He spends most of his spare time try- Robert O ' Connor. The most versatile athlete in the collection is our esteemed friend, Tub- by O ' Connor, June, ' 19. Bob is a member of the track, baseball and basket ball teams, and, in his frivo- lous youth, used to play a pretty good game of tennis. At the Tri-State Track and Field games at Miami, O., last spring, Tubby carried off first honors in the shot put, and he dupli- cated his performance in the Sec- tional Tourney at the fair grounds. He placed third in the State Meet at Lafayette the following Saturday. This year, to use his own expression, he is " gona bust the state record or bust in the attempt. " Tubby plays at floor guard, and handles his position to the satisfac- tion of everyone concerned but the opposing players. Charles Bybee. Although still an underclassman, Charlie Bybee, June, ' 20, has made an enviable record in Manual athletics. He first entered the calcium back in 1917, his freshman year, when he walked away with the half-mile run in the annual track meet with the local Y. M. C. A. His time was 2 : 10 2-5, only two-fifths of a second slower than the track record. Two weeks later, in the inter-class meet, he negotiated the distance on the same track in 2:09, hanging up a rec- ord which still stands. The last two years he has won the half-mile event in the sectional meet with ease, and this year hopes to capture premier honors in that event. Charlie plays floor guard on the basket ball team, and is probably the fastest man on the squad. Morris Conn. " Handsome Mac " Conn, January, ' 19, star forward and fancy shot ex- pert, dropped in from Columbus in the fall of 1917. His first question was, " Ya gotta basket ball team? " When assured that we had, he hung up his hat and decided to stay. Mac drops ' em in from any angle, but prefers to be under the basket when he shoots, probably because they look prettier from that position. He was our best player at the sec- 8 THE BOOSTER Earl Baron, our treas- urer, Is a fine, ambitious fel- low; Pushing all the things that aid The purple and the yel- low. Mr. McComb, our prin- cipal, Has helped us one and all. Our gratitude to this dear friend Is surely far from small. Finley Wright, our pres- ident, Is a Manualite thru and thru, Being to his class and school Both very loyal and true. tional tourney last year, and is always a steady man. Mac is the possessor of a sweet (?) tenor voice, and warbles a little ditty on the slightest provocation. He is a member of the famous Victrola Quar- tet. George Keckler. " Joe " Keckler, June, ' 19, all around " good lookin ' feller, " and speedy for- ward, received his earlier basket ball training as a member of the Broad- way Knights ' Club, which produced among other celebrities, " Dutch " Diet- rich of last year ' s team, " Hank " Ste- vens and " Wally " Middlesworth, stars of the Shortridge quintet. Joe played with the Manual A ' s last year and showed so much real ability that Coach Morrison decided to give him a trial in spite of the fact that he is much lighter than any other man on the team. He made good with a ven- geance and has been a regular all season. Joe spends his time, when not play- ing basket ball, talking about that " rare " team " us Broadways " used to have. The fellow who starts out in life as a wall-flower, will probably wind up as one. Class Poem. (Belle Rosner.) You shall hear how January, January, 1919, Formed a class, and who was in it, Who was in that class of wonders. In the school of Manual Training, In that room of senior pupils, Finley Wright, the mighty leader, He, the leader of the seniors, Stood erect and called the pupils, Called that greatest class to order. Then Miss Burnside, the great spon- sor, She, their helper and advisor, Told them what became a senior, Told them what should be their du- Told them who must be selected, Who was needed for the officers; Told that greatest care be taken In the choosing of the people. But who helped thru the elections? All are known to ask and wonder. " The machine, " then comes the an- swer, " The machine of 1919. " In the fall of 1918 When the class was in its glory, Came the " flu " and the vacation, Came the long enforced vacation. Soon again the sessions started; Joy was in the hearts of seniors, THE BOOSTER 9 Helen Steinmetz, our loyal vice, Has filled her office well. All that she is able to do Is beyond my means to tell. Miss Burnside, worthy sponsor Of the January class, Has been a true and faithful friend, And will be to the last. Mildred Schmedel, our worthy scribe, Has surely done her best; Boosting all within her power With the regular Man- ual zest. Joy at coming back to Manual, Joy at being with their classmates. Tired were they of all vacations, Tired at missing their assignments, For the seniors are ambitious, Always studying, always learning. Then the June class gave a party, For the seniors, gave a party. There all danced to perfect music, Danced and played the games of chil- dren. Forrest Hughes, the classic dancer, He, the one with all the new steps, Gave for all an exhibition, Showed them how to do fine dancing. All enjoyed themselves immensely, But the wall-flowers, the inevitable, Stood around and decorated, Decorated the gymnasium. A class play had been abandoned, On account of the vacation, On account of influenza, Had a class play been abandoned. So they gave an operetta, Gave a comic operetta, And all will remember surely How they gave the Pocahontas. How the gentle Mildred Schmedel, She, the sweetest of the singers, Sang her songs in Pocahontas, Sang her songs of love and longing. Helen Doeppers, the great boaster, She, the marvelous story-teller, Told her tales of great adventure, How the fish had killed old War-Paint. And Earl Baron, he the humbug, Always killing, e ' er the bloodthirsty, He the prophet and the wizard, Holding council with the spirits. And the singers in the chorus, All the lovely chorus maidens, Ever skipping, ever leaping, Ever laughing, joyous, happy. Thus they have the operetta, Operetta Pocahontas. Hundreds thronged to hear the music. Hundreds gave congratulations. Thus the class of January, January, 1919, Bids " Adieu " to dear old Manual, Bids " Adieu " to Alma Mater. Oh, quite a tall lad is Bill Hurd; His arrival in History ' s deferred, And we know, sure as fate, That the fellow ' s but late Tho ' he ' s absent when tardy bell ' s heard. Another young man named Bryan, Can raise a big laugh without tryin ' . He ' s got all beat a mile On his yell leader ' s style, At his antics we laugh till we ' re cryin ' . 10 THE BOOSTER When I returned from South Africa last month, where I had been a mission- ary for ten years, I was naturally very much interested in all that had been going on during my absence from home. As soon as I landed in New York, I laid in a supply of newspapers to read on my way home. In the first paper I opened I saw a picture which looked familiar. A hand- some man in uniform: of course it was Earl Baron. I was very much shocked when I read the accompanying article, which said that Mr. Baron, having re- signed from the army, had been made superintendent of an orphan asylum in Martinsville. I suppose he is very popular with the little girls, who surely love him for his fatherly manner. The girls always did love Earl, even when he was a student down at Manual! I then turned to the stage notes, where I saw many familiar names. I was very much surprised to find that Helen Steinmetz had become an actress, and was playing in the Stuart-Walker Company, with George Gaul as her leading man. I also saw that Carl Zimmerman had organized a new company of players, for whom he was writing plays, painting scenery, and designing costumes, in addition to directing ali productions. " Carl must be as busy as he was in his senior year at Manual, " I thought. I also saw Trevalia Buck ' s name in the movie notes. She had realized her life long ambition to take Mary Pickford ' s place. I was very much shocked to find that Dwight Dunlap and John Tacoma were now starring in Mutt and Jeff, and that the Dolly Sisters, now too old to be popular, had been replaced by Hilda Morrow and Opal Miller, who couldn ' t be separated. They were appearing in a revival of the old musical comedy " Oh Look. " Morris Conn, the famous tenor, was the leading man, and .some of the chorus girls were Mildred Miller, Jessie Reeves, Margaret Bonke, Kathryn Gerlach and Hester Venable. On the next paper, which happened to be the Indianapolis Star, in start- ling black type, I saw the words, " Craig ' s Under New Management. " I read on, always interested in Craig ' s, and was astonished to find that the new manage- ment was none other than the Syndicate. The president, Mr. Glossbrenner, had said, when interviewed, " We wish to announce that we intend to do everything in our power to please our patrons. We have engaged Beula Stanford, who has spent four years at Vassar learning to make Fudge Sundaes, as our chief cook. We are told by Mr. Edgar Matthews and Miss Alberta Grimm, that the chief value of her sundaes is that they will make you thin, rather than fat. We have also endeavored to get the best looking waitresses possible, and acting upon the advice of our ladies ' man, Mr. Paul Feucht, we have imported them from Lafayette. " I had just finished my last paper, when I heard a commotion in the rear of the car, and when I turned, I saw my old friend Dorothy Calderwood, with all six of her children. When they were finally settled, I asked her what she had been doing since I had seen her last. " I gave up teaching United States History at Columbia University and married the Professor of Physiography, " she said. " What has become of the rest of the Jingle Few? " I asked. " Why, haven ' t you heard about Ruth Finklestein? She is now a famous aviatrix, and has charge of one of the aerial mail routes. And Hazel Harmening gave up her position as yeowoman in the navy and married that sailor whose picture was on every page of her class book. " " Oh, please go on! " I cried eagerly. " Tell me some more! " THE BOOSTER 11 " Well, you remember Bob Bryan? Ever since Helen Steinmetz went on the stage, Bob has wanted to be an actor, and he has tried for years to get George Gaul ' s place in the Stuart-Walker Company. He became discouraged finally, though, and has accepted the position of train caller in the Union Station. Judging by his career as Yell Leader for our class, he ought to make a good one. " Rosalee Baker is quite an author now, " Dorothy continued, " and has written so many books that she herself has lost count of them. Her ideas come so fast that she has to employ Virginia Masterson, the champion speedy stenotypist to take her dictation. And Henry Meyer is now the editor of the Atlantic Monthly, with Eva Mills as his assistant. I hope they don ' t have as much trouble getting material for that as they did for the Senior Booster. " " What is Belle Rosner doing now? And has Mildred Schmedel gone into Grand Opera, or married? " I asked. " Belle and Forrest Hughes have a dancing studio on Broadway. I ' ve heard that they are better than Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle. Alberta Grimm had a studio, but as Mont Mcllwaine was her only pupil, she gave it up, Mildred Schmedel did go into Grand Opera, and is making quite a hit as " Pocahontas " at the Metropolitan Opera House. " Robert Stockwell has become quite a famous doctor. At last reports his latest patient was alive, but sinking fast. Dr. William Grindle, the young dentist, has discovered a new method of painless extraction. He plants a stick of dynamite at the root of the tooth and then slaps the patient ' s face. Both of these doctors have difficulty in collecting their fees, as the families generally pay the undertakers first, and they often employ Walter Gurley, the rising young lawyer, to collect their bills. " Henry Steeg is now leader of Sousa ' s Band at the Great Lakes Naval Train- ing Station. Someone from Chicago must have seen him leading the band at Manual. They say he puts his hand on his hip and sways just as gracefully as he used to. " Henry Goett surprised all of us, though, by becoming a minister. You ' d never know Henry if you should meet him on the street. Verne Reeder was thinking of becoming a minister, too, but he changed his mind and is now ex- hibiting his class book all over the country as a relic of 1919. His book has pictures of every theatrical company that has been in Indianapolis since 1918, and is a very interesting theatrical record. " Edward Thorns is chief grain inspector at the Chicago stock yards — or maybe it ' s the state fair — I can ' t remember which. " Just then the conductor stamped through, calling " Union Station, " and we all hurried out. In the confusion I lost Dorothy, and not knowing the name of her Physiography professor, or her address, I was unable to find out the fate of the rest of the class. TO MANUAL. At last the years are gone! Since that bright day When first we came, dear Manual, to you, What place you ' ve held; in what a mighty way You ' ve filled our thoughts; those plans were very few Which were not made with thoughts, dear school, of you. How many friends we ' ve made within your halls Who in the coming years will still be true; What memories abound within your walls. Dear Alma Mater, memory, that calls Of other things we prized in days gone by, Will keep you safe, even tho ' our lot falls Across the world; our love will never die And January, ' 19, now would leave Her heartfelt thanks for knowledge here received. 12 THE BOOSTER THE MASOMA CLUB THE ROINES CLUB THE BOOSTER 13 The Roines Club The Roines Club of Manual has been in existence since 1914. It was founded by a group of senior boys with a lot of pep and school spirit. The club was formed to help boost Manual in all lines. It is the hoys ' own club. This year ' s club is doing its best to pull for everything to better Man- ual. The membership is twenty-five. All of these boys have a good office record and have maintained an aver- age of B during their junior year. Fewer meetings have been held this year than other years on account of the " flu vacation, " but the boys have done their best and feel proud of the result. They are backing up mili- tary training and have formed a plan to reward the best drilled company. They are also starting an album to contain the pictures of all Roines Club members, past and present. In the spring they will hold their annual freshman track meet. In all their work they have lived up to their mot- to, " All together all the time for a greater E. M. T. H. S. " Attention, Aeronauts! The Aero Club, despite repeated in- terruptions, has accomplished notable work this year. The club was ex- ceedingly fortunate in having Mr. Horace Weir, a naval pilot, to act as its sponsor till Christmas; from Mr. Weir the club gained valuable infor- mation regarding the construction of sea planes. Mr. Weir held the mem- bers of the club in suspense by tell- ing of some of his " wing-slips " and " nose dives. " Through the efforts of Mr. Ammerman, the Aero Club suc- ceeded in getting Sergeant Miller, an army pilot, to give a lecture on his aeronautical work from A to Z. As Sergeant Miller was a land flyer, he covered some points that only a crack land pilot was capable of performing. Mr. Thornton, a new man on the fac ulty, has agreed to take the sponsor- ship of the club, and those who know him will vouch that he has the " pep. " The members, as well as the offi- cials, feel that the Aero Club is, and always will be, an organization that will be a firm, standing club of the Emmerich Manual Training High School. MARION LOUTT, President. Masoma News. No — we didn ' t have the flu; but other people did, and so we had to miss some of our meetings. No — we haven ' t quit working at school. If you think we have, just come into the rest room any period and watch us jump and run when that buzzer rings four times. Or, if you are still un convinced, go to the library and watch us help there, or go to the lunch room and see how business-like we can be when making or selling candy and salads. We have played, too, although we missed having some of the fun we had planned. For instance, we were to have had a slumber party at the house of one of the members; in fact, we had our grips packed and our lunches ready. Then along came the flu ban and our party was called off. But we did have a hike. We went to the fish hatcheries at Riverside, then went on to the home of Mildred Allen. Once there, we forgot there was such a thing as being dignified and played Black Man, Drop the Handkerchief and such like, ending with a grand wading party in a near- by creek. The Forensic Club. The Forensic Club started late this year, but with lively members it has accomplished much. The officers are, Robert Riley, president; Clyde Beem, vice-president; Abe Jaffe, secretary, and Thomas Gallagher, treasurer. Committees were appointed and defi- nite work was started. Several debates have been held this year. The first one was: Resolved, That all Manual cadets should wear uniforms. The negative won this de- bate. The last debate was: Resolved, That Manual ' s cafeteria system has been successful. This was won by the affirmative. The club adopted new plans this year. A series of debates will be held in the auditorium next term. The par- ticipants receiving the highest number of points will represent the school this year. We will have two interschool debates with Indiana high schools. The club will also be represented in the discussion contest. More live fellows are wanted. Get into a club that has some " pep. " Join the Forensic Club. THE SENIOR-FACULTY GAME TONIGHT THE BOOSTER D.CALDZRWOOD. For three long years the halls of E. M. T. H. S. had been filled with a miscellaneous crowd of knowledge seekers. No one other than a few teachers and of course the office force paid any especial attention to them. Toward the close of the third year a call was sounded throughout the school. " All persons having 24 credits report at once to the Commandress-in- ' Chief, Miss Burnside. " Those eligible were enlisted and at the beginning of the fourth year a company had been recruited that had no equal. We called this company the Class of January, 1919, of the E. M. T. H. S. When the first term of the fourth year had nearly half passed away, a general feeling of restlessness became noticeable in the ranks, and a desire for action was seen. This was remedied at once by calling the entire company to- gether April 12, 1918, in barracks 29, where organization exercises were car- ried on. It was necessary at this time to elect our officers for the remainder of the year. The meeting being called to order, nominations were at once opened for president. And above the noise of Bill Hurd and Heine Goett arguing which of them was going to be president, I heard someone say, " I nominate Finley Wright. " That ended it. No one else had a chance. Of course, others were nominated but Finley carried off all honors. And now that Finley had been given the biggest " plum, " in short order, Helen Steinmetz was elected vice president. Now at this particular time the company of January, 1919, ran across an unexploded shell which took upon itself to explode. A secretary was to be elected and a man was nominated for that office. A man in the secre- tary ' s office! Terrible! But in these war times everything from the Imperial Palace at Berlin to tradition can be torn down. But now tradition and the women had a worthy champion. Belle Rosner in a grand and eloquent speech denounced the idea of a man in that office. Just at this moment the machine sprang into existence and finally that noble order decided that Mildred Schme- del would fill the bill. So she was elected secretary. Last but not least, the banker had to be elected. When the machine had decided on Earl Baron there was nothing more to do except count the votes. And this noble and trust- worthy person became class banker. On April 17 at a short gathering we chose our company color, Royal Purple. This, we thought, would be a very conservative color; we didn ' t want to blind anyone, as another class we know of seems to have done. When we had secured our colors, we were all ready to make our appearance in public. The June, ' 18, company had invited us to attend its Ivy day exercises, so we put on our uniforms and appeared in all our dignity. Our president made his first appearance in public at this time. In that speech accepting the trowel he made a hit; great applause followed, also great smiles from Finley. To be sure, the machine was there to see that all went well. Our company being full of the spirit by this time, we desired to give the June Class a joyous send off, so we, as was customary, gave the departing class a party. It took place in the gym at three o ' clock on May 10, 1918. Among the entertainments were vocal solos by members of the class, dancing, and games or other amusement for those who didn ' t care to dance. The last bit of business carried on before the end of the first term was the choosing of the design for a company pin. With all the talent of this class at work, it was not hard to find a design. A design by the noted Carl Zimmerman was finally chosen, although a large liberty bell amongst the designs was a dark horse. Permission was given to wear the pins through vacation, so that we might lose them and thereby give the manufacturer more business. To bring the first term to a joyous close, the June Class gave a Class Day 16 THE BOOSTER program. One day we assembled in the auditorium to be entertained by the June company. It was a day of laughter and good feeling. The whole audience enjoyed the foolish actions and sayings of the entertainers. Now came the close of school, when we were given three months in blighty, away from the toils of studies. Though the first semester went by with little or no hardships for this company of January, 1919, that is no sign that the second did not contain some. The first trench had merely been passed. Now such good work had been done by the company officers the first semester that we reelected them for the second semester. This was about all the business we had taken care of when we received a surprise attack. Old man Influenza ' s forces were pounding hard to hold us back. We were held at a stand- still for one whole month. Nevertheless, a company made up of stuff such as was in ours could not be entirely restrained. To prove this I want to say: Our Ivy Day celebration was to come off as soon as school opened again and so the entertainment, Arm Band and Banner Patrols held meetings at private homes and formulated their plans for action. When finally the attack of influenza was broken and we succeeded in gain- ing ground again, we were able to take up work needing immediate attention. Now here is where the remarkableness of this company is shown. We had just returned to school and it was four days before Ivy Day. We accomplished in four day ' s drill what had taken former companies several weeks to accomplish. Oh! this is an exceptional company! However, before we had a breathing space, we witnessed our second attack of influenza counter attacked in a most ferocious attempt to break our morale but to no avail. His plan of attack was perfectly anticipated this time. We merely retired from the front line and donned our gas masks and let him rage. The attack lasted two weeks. After this we came back very strong and full of pep ready to push hard until we won our objective. The June, 1919, company had just organized a few weeks before, and some bright minded soul thought the two classes should have a chance to get ac- quainted. This was done in the form of a dance staged in the gym on Decem- ber 20, 1918. It was a complete success, I think every one will agree, even if we did have to cut off a half hour on behalf of the State team practice. An interesting thing about the party was that every one brought a present, the cost of which was ten cents. These were sent to the children in the Day Nursery. Now came Christmas and we all had a week ' s furlough. When we came back it was time to prepare for the New Year campaign. New Year ' s eve the company, under orders from headquarters, dispersed on separate scouting expeditions and reported after one day, much the worse for wear. Now, it had been customary for each company to have a play. But on ac- count of our many attacks, it was thought best not to have a play by the company individually. It was decided to have an operetta in which, members of both the June and January companies would take part. While rehearsals for this were going on, the June company woke up to the fact that we were getting ready to leave this old school and came across with a great big party in our honor. It was held on January 10, 1919, in the gym. We danced and sang and drank punch to our heart ' s content. But say, that new game was sure hard for our young brains to grasp — " Farmers in the Well, " I mean. There is just one more thing I want to clear up in the minds of people who attended that party. You remember those fellows standing on the side line while dancing was going on? Well, you thought they couldn ' t dance, so did I. But I have found out that these fellows are perfect dancers and could find no partner in the crowd that they cared to stumble around with. An attempt to write more of the history of the company of January 10, 1919, would be assuming the powers of a futurist which I am not. And in bringing the history of this class to a close, I would like to mention a few persons who have rendered distinguished service to the company of January, 1919, and in the common cause of E. M.

POPULARITY We often see a boy who is popular on ac- count of his ignorance, a boy who likes to " show off " before the ladies, or, in other words, " a nut. " Then, on the other hand, we sometimes find a boy who is popular on ac- count of a wavy pompa- dour, commonly called a " mop. " Every now and then we find a person who is popular on ac- count of his ability to dance. Persons with rag-time playing talent often become popular. Then we have the per- son who is popular be- cause of his friendli- ness and sociability. So we see popularity is a great magnetic force of equiponderating config- uration. Popularity is something we all crave, just as we do a square meal on the Circle or a piece of -candy after a dose of castor oil. We advise that whatever you do, you try to be popular by sensible means. Be popular by deeds. Don ' t be popu- lar because you are a nut, or because you can get by without study, and whatever you do, don ' t " show off. " People will only think your brains have lost their equilibrium and you will only be popular be- cause of your ignor- ance. BENNY JORDAN.
