3J?amtuurl ijari»ttiork, THE BOOSTER IVY DAY CLASS PLAY Ivy Day was held by the June ' 22 class, Friday, April 2 8, during the eigthth period in the new auditori- um. Tne January ' 2 3 class, alumni, teachers and friends were invited. While the orchestra was playing and the audience was thinking of what might happen next, the June class, led by the officers, marched in and took their places. The program was as follows: Processional, El Capitan Sousa Rhinefels Overture Gruenwald Orchestra President ' s Welcome.. ..Horace Storer First Polonaise Chopin Elmer Wheeler Class Song June, 1922 Dance — Les Sylphes ..Vonda Browne Hungarian Dance Brahms Orchestra Ivy Day P oem Nellie Campbell Soldiers Chorus from Faust. ...Gounod Varsity Octette A Salute to the Trees Van Dyke Ruby Pavy Springide Beeker Mary Dolk Remember Old Manual Girls ' Double Quartette Presentation of Ivy Horace Storer Acceptance of Ivy Mr. McComb Stars and Stripes Forever Sousa Orchestra Class Song June, 1922 Recessional, El Capitan Sousa Orchestra After the program a dance was held in the old gymnasium. The dancing girls in their gaily colored Ivy Day dresses made a beautifully colored kaleidascope. The music for the dance was furnished by musi- cians out of the class and was under the supervision of Elmer Emigholz. After an extensive search for a suitable play, the committee which had worked in conjunction with Miss Perkins in looking for a suitable dramatic work, finally decided on " Little Women, " as the June ' 22 play. This play is admirably suited for high school production, and al- though it has a simple plot, it has snappy, realistic dialogue and a clev- erly introduced element of suspense that makes it very inieresting to watch. The four little women from whom the play gets its name are the chil- dren of the March family. The story is concerned mainly with the family affairs of the March family and the marriage of three of the four little women. Beth gradually fades dur- ing the first two acts and finally dies at the culmination of a beautiful death scene in the third act. There are twelve characters in this play, seven girls and five boys.

Q ] r AC f ¥ ¥TC TT in = == y w WILLIAM MITCHELL — Early in the year of 1919 there straggled through the open door of Manual Training High School a large group of shortbreeched boys and curley- haired, rosy-cheeked girls, commonly known in high school as freshmen, and — they were. Into this famous school they came, eager to find new class- mates, new teachers, a higher education, the elevator, and occasionally a tardy slip. Little did anyone realize that those straggling freshmen would constitute the June 1922 graduating class. In their junior term they were amazed to see the beautiful new building crash in, but, of course, several of the school ' s stoutest supports were absent that day; including Carl Cecil and Edna Gemmer. Finally, when these juniors had climbed triumphantly up to the last rung on the ladder, that of being a senior, it becamo quite evident that they were a; constituent, vital part of this school. A get-together party was held at roll call in the gymnasium, the boys separating into a groupi at the north end of the gym, the girls at the south. Quite a friendly party indeed. It was noticed that Frank Churchman made " goo-goo " eyes at Laura Carr, however. A few rousing yells were given just as the bell rang, and the June ' 22 class was off. Early in the .term the first class meeting was held, and of course, the first thing to do was to elect officers. There were so many good candidates for the offices that we had only time enough to elect two. Diminutive Horace Storer was elected president and marched timidly to the platform, taking the reins of the June ' 22 class firmly in hand for once and all. The vice- presidency went to Elmer Emigholz whose black, bushy eyebrows were the center attraction on the south Side of the auditorium. October 26. Elections for the rest of the officers were held. Marie Rank was chosen to keep each and every precious minute of the class, and as Treasurer, Catherine Burgan, whose reputation for honesty was more wide- spread than Honest Abe ' s, was elected. With these officers, it is no wonder that we are an exceptionally successful class. Lavender Avas chosen as class color. A short meeting was held in Room 12 on November 2, and our president stated that the pupils, especially the fair sex, were dissatisfied with our color so old gold was selected instead. Edna Gemmer and Elizabeth Rath, Rooms 12 and 4 7, respectively, were selected to take the money for our class colors. Our president suggested that we compose poems and songs for Ivy Day. It was then decided to elect a class historian, and William Mitchell received the honor. In the absence of the President, the Vice-President took charge of the meeting. He asked the class to consider persons for the prophet, the will- maker, and the giftorian. Miss Knox reminded us to be thinking whom we should choose as our photographer, and a committee was appointed to get samples and bids from the different photographers in the city. December 8. We are to select our class pin at the next meeting. It Avas decided to give the senior party at night. December 14. As we wished to be distinguished from the other classmen we decided to select our class pin. Dandelions were discussed but we decided to choose the yellow daisy as our class flower. (Continued on page 4) THE BOOSTER (£la i0 ?jjt0tnrg— Mm. MiUifAl Seniors are usually very kind and thoughtful and the members of this class are not exceptions; therefore many toys and much money was brought to the senior party. Many a senior, and especially Hobart Burgan and Lawrence Rudbeck were seen gazing longingly at these toys. They, were, however, all sent to the day nursery wherq they were appreciated by the little children. January 4, 1922. Evelyn O ' Mara was chosen to take orders for pins and rings in Room 12 and Mildred Shadley in Room 4 7. Our motto was to be chosen the following Wednesday. January 11. " Teamwork, Headwork, Hardwork, Then Success " was chosen as our class motto. Our vice-president, Elmer Emigholz, submitted this very original motto. At this class gathering, it was decided to give a party for j the January Class. February 1. Miss Knox took charge of the meeting for the election of new officers; but all of the former officers, being both tried and trusted were re-elected unanimously. February 8. The class decided to give a bronze tablet to the school as their parting gift, on which would appear the school ' s Gold Star List. February 15. Mr. Bretzman, a man who has won great fame making people look better than they really are, was chosen as class photographer. Frank Churchman was the first to have his picture taken, and broke the camera so that some of the students do not have their pictures yet. March 10. Looking forward to our departure from school life, we elected Joe Burris as our will-maker, and then, of course, we wanted to know ' about our hereafter, and so we chose Dorothy Felton as prophet. It was decided that the class purchase two ferns for the house-warming to be held in the new building. Elmer Emigholz was selected as giftorian. March 15. Miss Perkins announced that " Little Women " had been chosen as the class play. March 22. April 2 8 was chosen as our Ivy Day. It was decided to have a gold cover on our Booster. April 7. Eva Temple is to be our senior editor. Make it a good one, Eva! The Ivy Day poem written by Nellie Campbell was selected and the only two songs submitted were both to be used. The banner designed by Margaret La Forge was chosen as class banner. April 12. The president asked for a report from the arm band committee and, of course, the arm bands were finished. On April 2 8 the class celebrated Ivy Day. Music was played while the Ivy was planted. At the exercises in our new auditorium, the Ivy Day poem was given by Nellie Campbell. Mary Dolk gave a soprano solo. Our famous varsity octette of boys and quartette of girls gave several delightful selec- tions. The class songs were sung. The idea embodied in the motto was well carried out in the design of the banner. The Senior Booster editor, Eva Temple, deserves special recognition for the delightful Senior Booster which was made possible by her untiring efforts and her devotion to the class. The class hopes that she may be an important editor some future day. Success always attracts attention and admiration, and we hope that every one who admires the success of the June ' 22 class will remember that this success could not have been possible without the untiring efforts of our sponsor, Miss Knox, the careful coaching of the plays by Miss Perkins, and willing help and encouragement of Miss Wheeler, Miss Brady, and Miss Evans. THE BOOSTER i ©ur AtbbtrB Harold Harmeson is one of the best athletes in school and is an all round man. He plays football, basket ball, track, and baseball, and can be depend- ed upon for points at all times. As captain of the basketball team, he led his team in points scored and to victories at the sectional and regional. He was captain of the all-sectional team for last season. The school regrets to lose such a valuable man as Harmie. Carl Cecil, our big football guard, is another man to leave. Football is the only sport Cecil plays and he plays it well. His fighting spirit and rotund figure will be missed when the call for football is issued next fall. Another football man to leave is Edward Arens, who played left tackle. Eddie is known as a scrapper, hits the opposing line hard and is in every play. That is what makes him so good. Eddie also played basket ball, and is a valuable man for any college to get hold of. Elmer Ehiigholz, more commonly known as " Dutch, " is another well known athlete of our class. Elmer played both football and basket ball. He is known as a flashy tackle and a hard hitting player. He played in a guard position on the basketball team. It will be hard to fill Elmer ' s shoes next fall when the call for football is issued. David Goldman, our star dash man, has made quite a record for the season. This is his first and last year on the squd. With a few more years on the squad he would have been a wizz in track. Fred Myers, our flashy full-back, has finished his athletic days at school. He has developed ino a brainy full-back, can tackle well and is fair on de- fence. He is the type of player [any college should be glad to have. Lee Shane has been in athletics ever since he came to Manual. He piays basket ball and track. Always willing to fight and work hard, he has showed a determination to win against all odds. He did sound broad jump- ing for the track team and played forward on the second basket ball team. Louis Reichel, our all-state center, will also graduate, tie has been picked on the all-city teams, all-state teams, and has won a Purdue medal for his efficient work on the gridiron. He is the best all round football player that Manual has, and when he is in college he will make all-some- thing else, besides all-state. Benjamin Barker is both a basket ball and baseball man. He has played center on Manuals fives for several years and is now working in the pitchers box for the nine. With more backing, Bennie could have done better than he has. The graduating class will also take with it another well known athlete by the name of William Mitchell. Bill has been on Manual teams ever since he has been down tiere. He has played football, basket ball and baseball. While not being a brilliant player, he has been a consistent point getter and will be missed when future athletic calls are made. Fred Schuller, also graduates with the June Class. Basketball is the only sport he has engaged in, but he has done well at it. He was a star guard on the House III team and consequently made the state squad. He could always be counted on for points because of his ability to connect with the basket on long range shots. THE BOOSTER ATHLETIC REVIEW THE BIRGE CLUB Looking back over the athletic seasons of the year, we can feel proud of the achievements which our teams have gained. In football we were the best the city had; in basketball, our team won its way to the state finals by its wonderful work after a poor start, and in track, although not a duplicate of last year ' s state champs, we have de- veloped practically a new team, and finally, we have a baseball team as good as any put out by a high school. Our football season, opening by the defeat of Wabash, the state champs, was a splendid one, marred only by the defeats from Louisville M. T. and Clinton, and ending with the overwhelming defeat of Shortridge, 50-0. Season MANUAL 75 MANUAL 2 8 MANUAL 27 MANUAL 13 MANUAL MANUAL MANUAL. MANUAL 50 193 Record Marion Wabash 2 Knightstown.. Louisville ..2 7 Sheridan Clinton 21 Technical Shortridge 68 The basketball record was a dif- ficult one, but the team put out all it had and ended the season with a no mean reputation. Playing the best teams in the state and defeat- ing Stivers of Dayton, Ohio Champs, out team finished with a season score of 590 as against 6 50 for the oppon- ents. As a climax to the season, we won the sectional by a battle royal with Tech, and the r egional from Pittsboro, but succumbed to the at- tack of Bloomington in the finals. Overcoming the handicap of build- ing up a new track team, our coach has developed some good material. Winning three out of four meets, losing the first dual meet lost by our team in seven years, and scoring thirteen points in the sectional, is not a bad record for the season. On the diamond we have been more successful. Our team has met and defeated some of the best teams in the state. The Birge Club, although one of the youngest clubs in Manual, is among the most active. The club was organized in the spring of 1921 by Mr. Winslow, our former director of music. The purpose of this club is to further the interests of music, not only in school, but outside as well. The club had its meetings every first and third Tuesday of the month. The sponsors of the club are Miss Kirkman and Mr. Davenport. This semester has been a very ac- tive one for the club. It has attract- ed attention from outside the school as well as in. The organization has had a guest artist recital in which prominent artists of the city fur- nished the program. It also had the honor of putting on the first of the series of programs held in the new auditorium for the students. Another important fact is that near- ly all the participants of the Music Memory Contest were " Birgers. " All the club ' s activities are not work, for every now and then the members are entertained with parties and pic- nics. The Birge Club is very useful to the school, for when any kind of music is wanted the material is eas- ily found in the membership of the club. The officers of the club for this semester are Eva Temple, president; Lola Lyzott, vice-president; Thelma Cavaness, secretary; and Frank Arens, treasurer. (Continued from page 5) One of our twirlers, Fred Wenning, has made a reputable showing in baseball. This is his first and last year on a Manual team and conse- quently it will lose a valuable man. In pitching several fine games, he has shown what can be accomplished by hard work and spirit. THE BOOSTER GIFTS TO THE JUNE ' 22 CLASS By Elmer Emigholz 1.

Faculty Advisors Lena Brady Edward Holloway At last we have started on the path to — what? Shall it be success or failure? Now is the time to re- solve. We have reached seniordom and have finished it. Some will go to college, others will have to go out into the world and face the hard facts of life, but life will be just what we make it. If we wish suc- cess, we must work and strive for it. Success will not come to anyone who sits down, calmly folds his hands and waits for it to drop into his lap. No, success is the compensation for hard, honest work. Many discouragements will meet every one of us on our way through life, but we must be optimistic. Just think that everyone must have his dark days, and these dark days must come to make us appreciate our brighter ones more. All you seniors, attention! Don ' t forget to subscribe for the Booster next year. It ' s terrible, seniors, but we have to go. Some day our class president will be the president of the United States. Wasn ' t our class play great? We wish all our athletic team! success for the following year. You, underclassmen, don ' t fail to back them up. What has happened to the class books? They seem to have lost their popularity. Say, don ' t you think we had some Booster this semester? We had a snappy little editor, that ' s the rea- son. Don ' t give up at the first failure, but try, try again. Sobbed a little senior leaving Man- ual, " Oh, I have to face the cruel, cruel world now. " Wtjrtt Swings £n Urntig It is best, my lad when the world goes wrong, to stick to your task, work straight along, and keep the goal of your hopes in sight; for things in the end, will come out right. That the tongue is not steel, yet it cuts, That cheerfulness is the weather of the heart. That advice is like castor oil — easy enough to give, but hard to take. That wealth, may bring luxuries, but luxuries do not always bring hap- piness. That an open mind, an open hand, and an open heart will everywhere find an open door. That success is never reached with- out hard work. Joe Jefferson: I hear your father won a suit in court the other day. Sam Glazier: Yes. But it wouldn ' t fit him.

They were just announcing the program — he said the first number would be a song by the Arsenic Octette — why, I could hear Wilford Hartman ' s sweet voice just as plain as I could on Ivy day. I don ' t know how the boys drifted way down to Muncie but I always knew that they ' d do something big and fine. Their song was almost over — I do believe Paul Stiner was responsible for that shriek. The man said that the famous Shakespearian actor, Fletcher Watts, would honor us with a few lines from Hamlet, in which he has played all over the world. The program closed with a piano solo by Elmer Wheeler. Elmer has become so famous that a new kind of ash can has been named " The Elmer Wheeler Ash Con- tainer. " Oh — yes, the man wished to announce that Eddie ' Orme, inter- national heavyweight champion, had a few rounds with the former champion Jack Dempsey. The proceeds of this little exhibition were donated to Mary Dolk, a friend of Eddie ' s, who lost her voice while singing in her last movie. The man announced that Lew Reichel was playing in a new version of the " Sheik " — Lew took the role of the desert lover while Dorothy Lane was the fair English girl. Well — now that was a pretty good program. I got lots of pleasure out of my little radio. I went to see that play and I ' d like to have seen Eddie wallop Jack Dempsey, but I guess that ' s a little too rough for an old lady. Then Emerson Thompson drove by in his jitney and I rode up town with him. Emerson told me that among his daily passengers were David Klapper who is now market-master. Cyrill Quinn who paints peanuts on Huder ' s window; William Bettge, who drills the old soldiers of this city, and Clements Reinert who holds Jack Tilson ' s old place at the Colonial. Emerson told me his old friend Joe Burris was trying to support Elizabeth Williams by writing poems. He said the support was weak at times. As we rode on we passed a huge sign board. We recognized Frank ' Churchman as the man slapping the signs on. Emerson coaxed his Jew Packard to stop and we watched Frank dab on the next sign. It was an advertisement of Campbell ' s Tomato Soup and the sturdy little Campbell kid was none other than Carl Cecil. Frank told us that at last Eva Temple had accepted him. He said Elizabeth had married Ed Hall and that they were neighbors. Frank said Elizabeth still had bobbed hair a nd that Eva was going to bob hers as soon as she was old enough. I was anxious to see the Sheik so we drove on. We passed Opal Brown, Edna Genimer and Hazel Bainaka arguing with a street pedler over a head of cabbage. I suppose it keeps Edna busy cooking for Fred Myers. Emerson is a pretty good driver but we almost hit when Everino Caroselli whizzed by in his banana cart. Emerson complained to the traffic cop who happened to be Bill Mitchell. Bill said he used to be at Washington and Illinois streets but his feet had hindered traffic so that he had been changed to Virginia Ave. and Alabama, fwhere he had more room. Bill told us that he had just sent Harold Huff and Jeanette Neiburger up to headquarters because they were practicing a new ) dance step in the middle of the street and blocking traffic. He said he hated to do it but a man ' s duty comes first. I got out at the next corner, not, however, without paying my fare. Emerson said business was business so I gave him the old nickel. As I passed the 10 cent store, I noticed that the windows were plastered up with Ruth Henderson ' s latest song hit. I went in to buy a copy and found Dorothea Herman playing the piano at the music counter. Marie Rank and Bonnie Breedlove were draped behind the candy counter making eyes at the hand- ( Continued on next page) 14 THE BOOSTER (Elasa flrnpljFrg (Continued from page 13) some young floor walker, who was jour worthy class president. Horace smiled at me — one of the reasons why girls leave home. He pointed out Benjamin Barker and Jack Miller; they were busily slinging sodas. Perched upon the stools, I saw Norma Long and Dorothy Morgan, giggling and powdering their noses as of old. I was anxious to get to the showl before evening prices went into effect so I hurried on. Cora Baldauf was selling tickets ' and she assured me that Dorothy Lane was more of a vamp than any- thing else. Merl Helcher and Joe Jefferson were ushers but they were so absorbed in a game of Put and Take that I stumbled into a seat by myself. The picture had not started yet — only a few advertisements. One was Lola Lyzott — Have you a little fairy in your home? Another one was advertising yeast — " Eat yeast and be tall " — Letters of approval, by Leota Haynes, Geneva Reeves, Nell Essex and Sarah Duben. The man next to me sighed. I guessed he didn ' t have any little fairy in his home. I looked at him; it was Hobart Burgan, but he was so thin I hardly knew him. I asked him if he had been ill and he said, " No, only sis has been cooking my meals lately. " Before the picture was over, Hobart left, mumbling something about eating a square meal before he went home for supper. The picture was good and I heard that more than one girl was carrying Lew ' s picture next to her heart. The comedy was good, too. George Painter was the funny guy and the bathing beauties were Margaret La Forge, Catherine Sweeney, Viola Swiggert and Dorothy Sandefur. For some reason or other, the picture news showed the girls in the water once. The Pathe Weekly showed Grace Holskamper (the Nazimova of 1932) leaving for Europe; and a committee of woman suffragettes, composed of Gertrude Dickson, Eula Din- iger, Elizabeth Rath and May Aired, attending a conference In Wahing- ton. That just reminds me, I read in the paper where May Shields and Eulalah Dain were running in the Senatorial race from Indiana. The article stated that they were well fitted for the position. It even went so far as to assert that these women were equal to their worthy opponents, Donald Mitchell and Arthur Campbell. In the most exciting 1 part of the play, where they have a big rain storm in the desert, a familiar voice bellowed, out, Ice cold bananas, peanuts, onions. " At last, I thought, Harley Aekens has found his calling. He was looking very happy and as I passed out, I had a chance to talk to him. He told me he had married Josie Whitehorn and that they were buying a home on the installment plan. In fact, they had already received and paid for the front porch. As I passed a drug store, I saw a crowd around the window, I looked, too, and saw Gladys S hort demonstrating how to get a skin you love to touch. Speaking of com- plexions, made me think of Paul Holman and Paul McNamara — my but they had pretty cheeks! I saw my car coming so I hurried on. The conductor was Francis Gaylord and he certainly looked handsome in his uniform. I sat down beside Mildred Hagerty, who proceeded to talk my right arm off. She told me Edna Voils had a dress making establishment and that Mildred Shadley and Clenna Kennedy paraded around the shop, showing the latest styles from Paris. When the dresses were too short for Mildred or Clenna, Madame Voils employed Gladys Lay to exhibit them. I glanced up at the placards which adorned the rim of the car and saw one reading, " Buy one of our glass eyes and see the best in life, " on sale by Alonzo Schricte and Lowden Mowry Glass Eye Co. At the next corner Mildred got off the car and I was free to watch the passing sights. I saw Harold Harmeson shovelling coal down a cellar chute and from the appear- ance of the side walk, he evidently had lost his keen basket ball eye, but that was the last I saw — the car jumped the track and as they carried me to the ambulance, I recognized, among the wide eyed, open mouthed spectators, Lawrence Rudbeck, Maurice Pleak, Donald Mitchell, Arthur Campbell, William Ehlers, and Everett Stossmeister, from whose uniforms I judged they were street cleaners. The next thing I knew I was being, thrust into an ambulance and the gentle face of Katherine Burgan was bending over THE BOOSTER 15 (UlasB Prnpljnrij me. (I learned later that Katherine felt so sorry for herself, when she died in the class play that she decided ,to be a nurse and make it easier for people to die.) Katherine tapped the driver, Carl Bradley, on the back and told him to try and miss a few of the bumps on, the way to the hospital. As my eyes closed in unconsciousness, I saw Frank Teague and Lee Shane loosely hanging on the step of the ambulance. Their wonderful physiques, obtained from track and basket ball came in handy as they carried the customers into the hospital. Hours later when I awoke, Clara Wulzen, in nurses uniform, was replacing the bandages on my arm. I saw Cecil Breed- love and Mabel Maschmeyer file past me. Cecil had a huge bottle of brown stuff and Mabel had a clothes-line. I suppose they were going to give some- one a dose of medicine. Clara told me that in several days I would be well enough to leave and in the meantime she would give me a paper to read. Clara also whispered that Clarance Lucas was one of the doctors and that the nurses liked him so well they elected him " May King. " When the evening paper was sent to me I fell N on it with anxious eyes. On the front page was a picture of the wreck I had been in but it was so gruesome I passed on. There was a full page advertisement by the Abe Needleman and William Soloman Tailoring Firm — reading " We have made a big cut in all men ' s overcoats. " Next I turned to the personals and noticed one, " I, Bertha Smith, will be in no way, responsible for any debts or damages incurred by my brother, Raymond Smith. " I also read in the paper where Lester Budd, with his circus was expected in town next week. The daring bareback, rider Ferndale Weis; Otto Depperman and Elmer Emigholz, the two cutest little clowns in circusdom; and Edward Arens, as the strong man were some of the main attractions. There was nothing else of interest to me except that Joseph Abbot, the famous violinist was to give a concert at Loews State soon. Clara came in and took the paper away from me so I went to sleep. The doctor said that tomorrow I could go home. Just as, I was leaving the hospital, I bumped into Harry Ray who was but a mere shadow of his former self. He summed up his decline in three words, " Too many dates. " It felt so good to be out in the open air again that I hurried off. I met Laura Carr and stopped to talk awhile. She said she was almost stone deaf and had been ever since the class play. I presume the applause was tremendous. I tried to get some information about any old class mates, but when I mentioned Bernie Zier she said, ( " He did burn his ear? Well, that ' s too bad, " so I gave up. I saw Gustave NeiS ' pushing a Dainty wagon and William Litchtsinn, Fred Schuller and Herman Stahl were crying for their daily dainty. I heard Gustave say, " All right, children, I ' ll wait on you in a minute. " I was very hungry so I stopped in a little restaurant; Loye Burnette and Bertha Hazelwood were flipping pancakes in the window. They sure were handy with the flipper, too. Loye told me that Mattie Smith and Pansy Borders were married. After eating about two dozen pancakes, I went on my way. Just then Margerite Jones and Beulah Lewis turned the corner. They were on their way to work at the canning factory. Marguerite told me that Ruby 1 Pavy, the star of our class play, was teaching expression to a class of mutes. The girls left me at the ncxi- rorner and again I was alone. I passed a man distributing bills and I read this on one of them, " A lecture by Harold Christie who has the most developed brain ever found in a human. " I didn ' t doubt this at all because I remember Harold always made A ' s at Manual. I saw some flying figures coming toward me so I stopped. The figures proved to be Lora McGee, Louise Beerman and Viola Winterhoff. When they got their breath. I heard in a chorus, " We ' re gonna get our hair bobbed — our mothers said we could. " I thought to myself it was rather old fashioned to have bobbed hair, but I didn ' t say so. A dirty-faced boy went past shrieking, " Extra, Extra! " I bought a paper and found myself gazing at Fred Wennings ' picture. It seems that Fred has become famous as a baseball player. The paper said that even Babe Ruth paid homage to the new " home run " king. I looked through the rest of the paper and was attracted by a column called, " Tell your love troubles 16 THE BOOSTER (ttlasis |fr0j%nj to me. I will advise you. — Estella Graver. " Beneath this was a letter reading, " Dear Miss Graver, I took a young lady home from a church social last night and as soon as we got to the gate she went in. What Shall 1 do? Yours in a pickle, , Otis Ervin. " The article said that Miss Graver would answer the letter in the next day ' s paper. On the sport page I saw a picture of Evelyn O ' Mara, who recently defeated Suzzane Lengler, the French tennis star. On one page I saw an ad reading, " I will write your poems for you to your sweetheart, your mother, your boss or for your tomb- stone " — Nellie ' Campbell. I also saw this item, " Hair marcelling, Music Lessons, Dancing Instructions, Shoe Shining " — Gertrude Wertz. " I guess Gertrude thinks if she can ' t succeed at one thing, she ' ll try several. 1 folded the paper up and went on only to meet Doretta Heger. She told me she had a fine position as a stenographer but had been asked to resign because when taking a letter which her boss was to send to his fiancee, she had written, " You were a little horse last night, " instead of hoarse. I guess the fiancee let Doretta ' s boss know that she wasn ' t a little horse. Doretta whispered to me that Russel Jorden was the boss and Marie Tacoma the fiance. Doretta is a wonderful gossiper, so as we traveled on I learned the following: Forest Pyke is teaching a dancing class and his star pupil is Harry Hoffman. Mabel Bullard is keeping house for Louis Geis. Mary Glezen is at the head of a toothpick concern and Marie Massey is head stenographer while Kenneth Holdaway is office boy. Harold Geisendorf and Harold Sweeney are traveling salesmen for the company — their business being to demonstrate the correct position of holding a toothpick Doretta stopped for the lack of breath and I found that I was almost home. As I thought over the positions which my class mates are holding in 1932, I felt a surge of pride go through me — they have all made a name for them- selves and are steadily climbing the ladder of fame.

THE BOOSTER MASOMA CLUB ROINES CLUB THE BOOSTER 19 MASOMA CLUB HIT AND MISS The Masoma Club is an honorary club for girls who have an average of B, and who are in English V or above, It is one of the most active clubs in the school. The members of this club are known to the freshman girls as their Masoma Sisters. They do everything they can to enable the new girls to become better acquainted among themselves and with the school. The Masoma Club not only does this but it also acts as messen- gers for the office and furnishes quite a bit of the service in the lunch room. However, it isn ' t all work and no play, for the Masoma girls have diversions through parties, hikes and picnics. Each semester, a series of parties are given for the freshman girls. THE ROINES CLUB The Roines Club, sponsored by Miss Knox, considers its business to consist of helping fellow students in a brotherly attitude, backing all kinds of school activities and doing all possible good for the school. About the work of helping fellow students, very little is known for that is done individually by each member of the club. Last fall at the foot- ball games, members of the club car- ried small megaphones and assisted the yell leaders in leading the yells. Although in that way the yelling was improved, it was felt that this did not hit the mark, so the Booster Club was organized through the ef- forts of the Roines Club to install " pep, " in the rooters behind all of Manual ' s activities. On the night of the Alumni dinner and dance, given in the new building, the Roines Club with the help of their sponsor, gave free plates to the football and basket- ball teams. The club also holds a Freshman Track Meet every year and awards medals for all firsts. This costs a large sum of money, but the club is reimbursed by the members selling pictures of the athletic teams, reporting school notes to the papers, and by the club dues. " Bobby, I hear you are going to school now, " said the minister to a little boy age six. " Yes, sir, " was the reply. " What part of it do you like best? " " Comin ' home, " was the prompt answer. Miss Thale: How is Central Ameri- ca divided? Louis Wides: By earthquakes. " A horse ran away with me, " said the little man, " and I didn ' t get out for two months. " " That ' s nothing, " said the big man, " I run away with a horse and didn ' t get out for two years. " Harley Aiken: Do you read much? Frank Teague: Sure. Harley Aiken: , Have you read, ' Broken Windows " . Frank Teague: Who ' s the author? Harley Aiken: Heave A. Brick. Harold Christy: Are you going to History today? Arthur Campbell: No, I sleep the fifth hour, in Geometry. Joe Burris(in north side grocery) : How do you sell limburger cheese? G-rocer: I often wondered myself.

Miss Butterfly: Isn ' t it sad that in a few hours I shall die? Mr. Bullfrog: Yes, indeed it is but then before night I expect to croak myself. Harold Harmeson: Do you draw?

It feels pretty heavy ! From Eunice Cassidy. Oh ! she was a member of my graduating class in January, ' 22. Now, I remember! I haven ' t heard from her for an age. She finds a little red book on which is written, " Diary of My Senior Year, " by Mildred Whitted. (Looks at the little book hurriedly, but eagerly.) I wonder how this happened to be here. I ' ll read the letter and see. " Chattanooga, Tenn., June 25th, 1933. " Dear Bernice: I suppose you are quite surprised to hear from me, aren ' t you? I just attended an auction sale here and one of the things to be auctioned was a huge trunk, which aroused my curiosity as soon as I saw on the inscription plate the name of Mildred Whitted, one of my former classmates. I could hardly believe I was seeing the name of my dear old pal, Mickey. I was so anxious to see what the trunk contained that I was willing to pay almost any price to get it. No one else in the crowd seemed as curious to know its contents as I, so I secured it at a figure of only five dollars. I controlled my curiosity until I reached home. Upon reaching home I eagerly examined its contents, and in the midst of various personal things, such as a lip-stick, also a book on ' How to Have a Winning Personality, ' and another book on ' How to Become a Successful Candy Saleswoman, ' I found a little red book entitled, ' Diary of My Senior Year, ' by Mildred Whitted, which I am enclosing. I just couldn ' t wait any longer to send it to you. Yours sincerely, " EUNICE CASSIDY. " liarg of Ulg g ntar ar 3v MILDRED WHITTED January 18th, 1921— Well, this term has started and it has started with some pep, too. ' cause now there is a new senior class that is just bubbling over with activities. We seniors had a get-acquainted party in the Gym today at roll call The party was very successful, even as to getting acquainted. Russell Stotts had thought out a novel plan in order that we might get acquainted with each other. March 8th — It is rumored among the seniors that we are going to have our first meeting Wednesday at roll call. I just wonder what it will be like. I think we are going to organize the class. March 10th — Well, we have had our first senior meeting today in Room 30. We adopted the same constitution of all other loyal senior classes of Manual. First of all, we did our duty by electing the best officers a senior class ever had. Now, just listen: Harry Biersdorfer was elected president, Mary Johnson was elected vice-president, Jean Gregg was elected to keep the minutes of this class, and Harold Huff was elected to see that none of the money in the class treasury was begged, borrowed or stolen. March 12th — Can you imagine it, Harry Biersdorfer, pur honored president, came to school today with his shoes unshined, and then accused May Brennan of stepping on them. Wasn ' t that just like Harry? March 16th — Leonard Kord and Helen Kirkpatrick seem to be so interested in each other ' s lessons — I can ' t imagine why. March 17th — Thursday. My, we had a high time today selecting our class color. Some wanted gold and some wanted lavender, but of course, American Beauty, the prettiest of all, was chosen. Although some members of our class (not mentioning any names) were greatly opposed to this bright color because of some of our predecessors having chosen it ; there were no hand-to-hand fights, injuries or casualties. March 23rd— Wednesday. We had another class meeting today, but we didn ' t accomplish very much. Miss Knox gave Harry orders to appoint the Ivy Day committees and I think that ' s all we did. Oh, yes, I almost forgot, Arthur Mills led the class with some snappy yells before we adjourned. We sure put some pep into them, too. April 8th — We had an unexpected meeting today and we talked about an unexpected thing. The color committee was unable to obtain American Beauty ribbon at any of the stores, so they wanted our opinion on the subject. Since light cerise was so near the shade of American Beauty, we decided to take that for the class color. April 11th — Monday. The June class had their Ivy Day today and the exercises were fine, but the dancing in the Gym afterwards wes better. Everyone had a grand time, but just wait till the January, ' 22 class gives a party and then you will hear some remarks. April 12th — The boys selected the butterfly rose for class flower — Sh — don ' t tell anyone but I think I know why they selected it ; they knew it signified gracefulness and thought that was one way of attaining it. April 29th — Friday. Poor Mary, she had to take charge of the meeting today because Harry forgot to come to school. We selected our class pin design, which was made by Charles Hagemier. May 18th — There was much discussion in the meeting today, but very little was accom- plished. Miss Knox suggested that we think over our Ivy Day plans during our summer vaca- tion period. May 30th — I have been to the races and I am just dead tired. Tommy Milton won first prize. I am so sleepy I can write no more. June 11th — School is over ; no more lessons, no nothing, no more fun until September 6th. Continued on back cover (inside).

Editor-in-Chief Jean Gregg Literary Editor Pauline Chastain Literary Editor Harry Rail Athletics TYPISTS Lucille Dichman Josephine Stone FACULTY ADVISORS Elizabeth Hench Edward Holloway E. H. Kemper McComb EDITORIAL At last the goal is reached. For four eventful years Seniors have been struggling to reach that coveted white line. At times they have slipped and fallen, but all have sur- vived and are now ready to start out on the ship of life. And this ship is no joke, either. If you run on the rocks, your life is spent. You can be classed a = s a failure or a suc- cess. It all depends on the way the individual guides his ship. In the few years of high school life Seniors probably think that he or she has seen real life. But this is not so. School life is nothing compared with the experiences that are met later on. It has been said by a reliable author- ity that going out into the world to fight life ' s battles is the best college education a person can possibly ob- tain. It won ' t take so very long for the majority of us to discover that this is true. While we pause on the threshold we should give the old school one more thought, for on the morrow we will be one of the many millions of insignificant beings on this great earth. Some of us or rather the greater number of us, have done something to further the activities in the school. In this manner we have become known throughout the school and in time others look up to ptttnr Since the past and future of the Seniors is published let ' s get ready for the new term. We ' d be tickled to read later on that our basket team had got started. All good Seniors subscribed for the Booster for next semester. Noth- ing like keeping in touch with your friends. Class books were not so predomi- nant this semester. Prices must have raised. Class Day has come and has gone. Every year still the same. The Seniors wish for Captain Harmeson a victorious team in the sectional. Only way to get this Harmey. Make ' em train. Bet Stuart Walker envies us with our all star cast. Miss Perkins, as usual, deserves all the thanks that can be given to her for making the plays a success. Now that the Seniors are going, the office can rest for a spell. One thing we regret. The new building won ' t see us. Nor will we see the new building. Who knows but what our presi- dent may be a real one some day. There will be plenty of jobless men when the Seniors leave. us as a fitting example for them to follow. But now this is all past. You may visit the school some day, but everything will seem different. Here and there a person recognizes a former graduate, but it isn ' t like it was in the past. It ' s too bad Seniors, but we must face it. There are greater difficulties to be encountered. Make your friendships with the school a sacred one and always dwell with reverence on thoughts of the best days of your life — school days at good old Manual. THE BOOSTER BY WANDA LYDAY When Alia Axiom resigned his position as Crystal Gazer, I made a study of the work and became his successor. One day, while idly gazing into the Crystal I saw events and incidents of the January ' 2 2 Class which astounded me! I could clearly see a studio on E. Washington street with the name Madame Charlotta Ze S outh blazing about it. My old friend, Charlotte, had become a toe dancer. Farther down the street was a Hash House run by Maurice Bowers; out in front of which were Lawrence Leonhardt, William Quill and Francis Schatz dishing out samples of the hash to those passing by. As I watched, I saw William Watts walk up and take a spoonful. He imme- diately swooned and a crowd collected. Approaching the stricken William, I saw a burly policeman, formerly Matty Giesler, jostling his way through the crowd as if he were still on the basket ball floor at Manual. Before he could reach the unconscious form, a dapper looking gent approached and slipped a card into the patient ' s cold hand which bore the name of Doctor (Harold) Huff. An ambulance drew up and I perceived the driver to be the dainty Harry Schricte. Two waiters skipped gayly out with the stretcher. They were Allen Wh ite and Edward Underwood. Back of them I saw Helen Glyn and Alice Caveny, the nurses, in lavender uniforms, carry- ing little parasols to match. The scene changed and I saw a theatre with the names of Irvin Baum- bach and Pauline Chastain in electric lights. They were playing on the stage as " The Kandy Kids. " Strolling past the theater came Karl Schnep and May Brennan. They were discussing the fortunes of their old class- mates. " Whatever became of Chester Lively? " asked Karl. " Oh, you mean ' Pest, ' why he is a minister now. He and Mary Johnson eloped right after graduation. They are living down in Brown county. " " Do you re- member Eugene Manker and Carolyn Richeson? They seem doomed to a life apart for Eugene was adopted by a millionaire who changed his name to Toots, while Carolyn married our class joke, Ralph York. " They passed on and I saw Raymond Cassady and Eunice Cassady in a serious discussion. It seems that Raymond had discovered Eunice to be his long-lost sister, Jezebel, and they were now united in a search for the Fourth Dimension. A newsboy came running past shouting that Albert Tegeler had won the game for the New York Giants. On the front page I saw a picture of our Class Vamp, Lucille Roesener and her husband. The victim was Edward Cruse. Over in the Society Column was an announce- ment of Herbert Ally ' s engagement to a certain Miss in the June Class. Out of the theatre where the " Kandy Kids " were playing, came Margaret Vitz and Loretta Helmuth. They said that it was almost as good as the Class Play, " Nevertheless, " and that led to a discussion of their Class in general. " Have you seen Helen Murphy, recently, " inquired Loretta. " The last I heard of her she was engaged to Harry Martin. " " Why, " answered Margaret. " She broke her engagement once — they say she was jealous of Harry ' s attentions to Bernice Miller — but now they are engaged again. Jeanne Wilson had her fortune told the other day. The woman said that she should beware of April 1, 1925, for then she would have to choose between happiness and Delver Landers. I heard that Jeanne is very excited over it. " " Is that so? " said Loretta. " You would hardly know Austin Gillespie any more. He has become so pious that he can scarcely speak. " The two girls jumped aside just in time to escape being hit by Elmer Rohr- man ' s banana cart, and I lost sight of them in the crowd. It was then Continued on page 12 THE BOOSTER WILL ftCAlDfcKWfl BY HOMER PHILLIP We, the members of the January, 1922, Class of the Charles E.

" " I certainly can ' t, " said Austin as he approached Louise. " But it seems as if someone has tried to beat Louise. " " Well, " replied Lucile Roesener, as she posed before the mirror, " she better be getting herself ready, that ' s all. It ' s nearly time to go on the stage. " " Listen, Louise, " spoke Austin in sympathetic manner. " What ' s the trouble, don ' t you feel well enough to act tonight? " Louise sobbed all the more until she boldly dried her tears and tried to look into Austin ' s handsome face. " Y-y-you know, A-a-austin, I 1-1-love — Oh-h-h-h It hurts, it hurts, I tell you Boo-o-o-o H-o-o-o. " My gracious, " exclaimed Helen Murphy, putting her motherly arms around Louise. " You don ' t mean to tell me you ' re sick. There, there, let me dry those naughty tears and powder your face. If Harold Sherman saw you now he wouldn ' t let you play the part of his wife. Hurry now, it is almost time to play. " Again Louise strove to brace herself and dry her weeping eyes, but it was all in vain. " H-H-Helen I been h-h-here nearly f-f-four years and in that t-t-time I-I-I ' ve learned to 1-1-love Oh, Boo-o-o-o Ho-o-o-o. " " Lucile, you better run and find Miss Perkins. This child is either love sick or looney. Hurry and tell one of the janitors to bring a mop, my feet are soaking wet. " Lucile ran and Louise continued to cry. " Maybe she ' s hungry, " suggested Jean Gregg. Just then Miss Perkins dashed into the property room followed by Lucile. " What ' s up? Why Louise, my dear child, are you sick? " cried Miss Perkins as she approached Louise. Just as quick as one could stop the water flowing from a hydrant Louise seemed to stop crying and sat rigidly in her stool looking boldly into the eyes of Miss Perkins while the rest of the actors looked on in amazement. " Miss Perkins, " stammered Louise as she mustered up courage. " Ever since I have been to Manual I have learned to admire and to love this little Auditorium with its tiny stage and initial-carved seats and now it is to be- come a memory and a happy reflection to us who are about to depart from the school. And as I sat here tonight waiting for the time when the last play will be given I thought, too, that ours is the last Class play to be given in this grand old Auditorium. Oh it is thrilling, and it is sad to think of it. I love it and I hate to part from it even though the new one will be a much better one. Oh, it ' s like losing a dear friend, Oh-h-h-ho and again she burst into a stream of tears, but not by herself. Mercy sakes, no. Every- one present was sobbing and it was quite a while before they quit. " Pop, what ' s that pin on your coat for? " " That pin, my son, I have worn ever since I left Manual Training High School, the school I expect you to graduate from some day. It is my class pin and was designed by Charles Hagemier. The rising sun symbolized our class, which was beginning to rise upon the sea of life. " " Did it set upon the Dead Sea? " " Ah, my boy, members of that class are scattered all over the world now. " " Did a cyclone strike it? Pop, who is this Charles Hagemier? " John, Mr. Hagemier is worth millions, and he ' s got a wife who can cook better than any stove. " " How did he get his millions? The war is over. " " Look here, John, you see this silver dolla r I hold in my hand? Well, he designed it. He is the most outstanding American artist today and has THE BOOSTER 11 (§hh Number (Club an international reputation. Ycu see the lady ' s face on the dollar? That ' s the image of Pauline Chastain. She posed for that and isn ' t it reason enough why he ' s worth millions, eh, son? " " Yes, Pop, but there ' s a bull on the back of the dollar. " ' My boy, I posed for that. " " Gee, dad, that class must have been some humdinger. " " You ' re right, it was. You heard me speak to your mother about this man Thiem, who had just returned from Russia. Ten years ago when he and I went to school together Russia was nothing but a sore spot to the whole world. Political and social life was all corrupted and dragging the nation to utter ruin. Today Russia is calm, peaceful and industrious. Why? Because Charles Thiem went over there and showed those people how to run things. He did it all through the power of the press, too. Right now he owns three of the most influential newspapers in New England besides scores of dailies throughout the country. " " Take the Rev. Harold Sherman. He was one of my schoolmates, too. Look at him today. Probably the most outstanding minister in Indiana. I remember the time when he was president of the Manual Hi-Y Club and led at the worship periods. Not one of us thought then that he would ever become a preacher. But he did and he certainly is in demand. " " Did he marry you and maw, Pop? " " Silence, if you want to hear some more. You have heard about Wanda Lyday, author of Everysenior. She is a short story writer whose stori es are read by the most cultured people. At any reliable bookstore you can purchase a volume of her stories. Just last evening I was looking over sister ' s reading list and saw a volume of her books listed there. Take my advice, John, and read some of her stories. " " I have, Pop, but her lovers don ' t talk half as nutty as the fellow who calls on Sis. " (Nuff sed). 12 THE BOOSTER Continued from page 5 that a familiar name glared at me from a big bill board. It wap that of Edward Stultz, advertising his new chewing gum, guaranteed to keep its flavor and to make the thin, fat. As proof he showed pictures of Scott Dill and Bertram Barker, examples of " Before " and " After " chewing one stick. On an old comic paper flying around the street I saw that Louise Altum and Harold Sherman had entered the paper as the successors to Jiggs and his wife. The scene vanished and I found myself gazing into a room in the court house. Homer Phillips was the Judge and he was busy settling the case of Oscar Vogt and Maude Walther. The quarrel had started by Oscar attempting to kill a sparrow with a biscuit made by Maude. Harry Lehner was the attorney for the defense, while Norma Ernsting and Lucille Dick- man were court reporters. They were busy powdering their noses as of old, but I heard snatches of their conversation. They were speculating on how Charles Hagemier would spend the money he had made by painting William Kellermeyer ' s artistic laugh so that one could hear it, and Norma whispered that Leonard Kord was almost through painting the girls ' class books and would soon take up the profession of painting and designing spit curls. " And Norma, " said Lucille, " Jean Greg g is going to marry Harry Biersdorfer in the near future, as Harry used to say, ' Evenutally, why not soon? " They giggled a while and then this scene, too, faded away. And then I saw distinctly a section of South Illinois street. Elmer Elder, the organ grinder, was parading up and down with Russell Stotts, the dancer and originator of the popular song hit, " Crazy Capers of Cora the Cat. " They were wishing that they had enough money to go and see Mildred Whitted, Gabrella Segal and Charles Thiem, the chief attractions of (Earl) Schultz ' s Follies of January, 1922. Russell stated that Bernice Mathews was writing an historical romance, with Ernest Thomas as the hero and Hermon Rindley the villian, and that it was the talk of the town. Then they crossed the street and bought some beans from the stand of Harold Wilkens and Lewis Wides, who advertised pure Manual beans, guaranteed not to rust. There they met Lillian Unger, who had become so proficient in shorthand that she could write over 300 word a minute so long as she didn ' t have to read it. Lillian said that Ursul Pearcy was a contributor to " The Teaching of Jazz to Pet Canaries, " edited by Miss Helen Auerbach. They were all surprised to see Helen Kirkpatrick come hurrying down the street on her way to (Paul) Ebaugh and (Harry) Rail ' s Circus. She stopped long enough to inform them that Ethel Buchanan had bobbed her hair and that Esther Dobrovitz had run off with a Chinaman named Soupa Bean. Again the scene changed and I was looking into a large tent where Josephine Stone was lecturing on " Where the Noise Goes When Arthur Mills Laughs. " In the audience, I saw Wanda Haverkamp, who had writ- ten a book on " The Ideal Man " and had not found anyone as yet who would meet her requirements. Also, I saw Ella Neal, a noted suffragette, and Dorothy Coller, now a Phisiography teacher, who was whispering to Lewis Levi that Essie Long had married the one whose picture she carried in all her books and that they were living on an island in the Red Sea where Essie spent all the time in looking at her Class Book and making jewelry for her husband. As I continued to gaze the picture faded away and left me wondering whether I had really seen it all, or, if it had not been a dream. THE BOOSTER 13 Atljlettr K?triro So far this season, there is only- one sport that we can go into de- tails and talk about. That is foot- ball. Basketball has just begun, so there is very little to say in regard to i t. Track also is far away, but it will not hurt to mention the pros- pects for another winning team that we expect to have. Football at Manual has always been a sport that created plenty of enthusiasm. This year we had a team that was well worth the honor of representing our school. This team came through the season with only two defeats counted against it. One of them being by the Clinton team and the other by the Manual Training School eleven of Louis- ville, Ky. This latter game was probably the best ever played by the squad this season. The team knew that they were not only meet- ing one of the best high school teams in Kentucky, but also one su- perior in weight and football science. All through the game our team fought like tigers and more than once they put a scare into the Ken- tuckian eleven that will long be re- membered by them. The points scored by our team this year were far more numerous than the ones scored by our opponents. We scored 19 3 points to our oppon- ents 59. Next year we should have just as good a team or perhaps even better than the one we had this year, as there will be about six men on the regular team back again. Then with the promising material that is on the second and third teams the possibility presents itself even better. Manual always has a good basket- ball team running in the field. But this year on account of the late football season our team jumped off with a slow start, but development and team work is sure to come be- fore very long. ®UV AtlflftPB Harry Beirsdorfer, our notable president, is an athlete of many types. He was a member of the track and basketball teams of last year. This year he went out for football and though it was only his first time for this sport he made a very creditable showing. Just now he is playing basketball with the state team and when this is over you will probably find him again on the track team. Several of the students of the school think that our team is not put- ting up a good showing. But if they only stopped to consider that we have only a couple of men from last year ' s squad left in order to build a team this year, and if they realize that most of the basketball teams throughout the state were playing basketball while we were playing football they would become a booster of the team instead of a knocker. Again if the records of the games we played so far this year were com- piled, the records would show that we have scored about as many points as our opponents. There is one sport at Manual that makes us proud when we think about it. That is track. Track has always been a success at our school. In five years ' time we have been state champs three times. This is a record and an honor to be envied by any school in the country (and it is doubtful whether any school in the country can come up to this rec- ord). We owe a certain amount of this honor to Coach Morrison for he has been a great help to the track team for the last five years and it was under his direction that we won the state championship for these three years. 14 THE BOOSTER ©u r Atlilrt H Continued from Page 13 Ralph York distinguished himself as being one of our athletes in the football season of last year. Ralph played on the line and he was al- ways a puzzling man to his oppon- ents both on the offense and the de- fense. This year on account of a little ineligibility Ralph was lost to us, but perhaps he will make up this loss when he goes to college because he is a valuable man for any college to get a hold of for their football team. Elmer Elder is both a football and track man. In football he played the position of end. Although it was his first year at the sport Elmer seemed able to hold down this posi- tion like a veteran despite his min- iature size. On the track team last year he was a high jumper. But it being only his first year at this sport he did not gain much no- toriety. This year no doubt will find him much better in this line of ath- letics and he may surprise us all by doing something extraordinary. Mathew Giesler, more commonly called " Matty, " is another well known athlete of our class; in fact, throughout the school. " Matty " was a member of our football team a year ago. He also played basketball for two years on the state squad. This year he is ineligible so that is the reason you do not find him knocking them around this year. One of the best athletes that the January class is taking away with it is Harry Rail. He was a member of the football squad and is now playing on the basketball team. Al- though small he has made good and it is too bad that the class must take him away so soon. Again we turn to track. This time it is Homer Phillips. Homer is one of two men who ran the mile on our track team and he could always be depended upon to figure in the points after each meet. Harold Huff was a member of the track team two years ago. He turned several points in for Manual by show- ing up well in the dashes. Since then he has been ineligible, but he would have gone good last year if he had been eligible. Last year Elmer Rohrman played both on the basketball and football squads. In football he did remark- ably well for being only a one-year man. This same situation applies to basket ball as last year was Elmer ' s first and last time for representing Manual on the court. This year he is on the ineligiblity list which means only another loss to our athletics. Arthur Mills is small, but mighty when it comes to track. Last year Arthur was high point man in the futurity track meet given by the Roines. It was his first year, but the way he ran those hurdles in the meet indicated that Manual would have a star now if he had gone out when a freshman. We may hear again from him in the track meets that we have this year. Besides this group of athletes there are also in our class several members who never have tried very much to show their wares in athletics. Among these are Russell Stotts, who played on the football team last year for a few games, William Kel- lermeyer, who plays on our second basketball team this year, and Ray- mond Cassady, who played on the third team in football. Chester Lively also belongs to this class, as he was a mem ber of the second basketball team of last year. Why is your nose in the middle of your face? Don ' t know. Why? Because it ' s the scenter. I am no good unless I strike, said the match. And you lose your head every time you do, said the matchbox.

S. is the new stair- climbing bicycle, the invention of Mr. Weigler. See him in room H for prices and full details. Agents wanted. I was motoring the other day and I came to a river, but couldn ' t find any way to get my machine across. Well, what did you do? Oh, I just sat down and thought it over. Visitor — You haven ' t a skull of Napoleon here and yet you call this an up-to-date museum. Why each of the last three museums I visited had one. Attendant (pointing out a small skull) — But you didn ' t see this one. This was Napoleon ' s when he was a boy. Well good night. Don ' t be afraid to walk across the front of the stage. Postal Clerk — Your letter just bal- ances, sir. If it had weighed any more you would have to put on an- other stamp. Mr. Blank — I ' m glad I didn ' t sign my middle name. Has anyone seen Al? Al who? Alcohol. Kerosene him last night, but he hasn ' t benzine since; at least he hasn ' t been around here since gasolined against a post and took a naptha. He ' s a corker. Who is? Why that fellow at the bottle factory. You sound hoarse this morning. Shouldn ' t wonder. I sat in the " Z " row at the theater last night. Pupil — I don ' t think I should get zero on this paper.

Boy — Athens is like the wick of a candle, because it is surrounded by Greece. He is a clever pianist, for he plays everything by ear. That explains it, then. I never believed he could make those sounds with his fingers. How is it that your hair is so short, did you have it cut? No, I washed my head last night and my hair shrunk.

Make light of everything, said the fire. Make much of small things, said the microscope. Jtotermiaatmt (JUNE TO SEPTEMBER) September 6th — The secret is out about Miss Gawne. I came to school this morning rather late and I went into Room 30 and Miss Gawne wasn ' t there. Several voices — all at once whispered out — Miss Gawne is married. Of course, that is the secret I knew about last term. It traveled like fire when it once got into the hands of the gossiping girls of our class. October 3rd — We had our first meeting of this term today and we reorganized the class and elected the same officers as last term, with the exception of Harold Huff, who had the misfortune of getting a D. Harold Sherman was elected to guard our millions — some guard, eh? October 11th— We had another senior meeting today, to discuss Ivy Day plans. October 18th — Today at our class meeting the chairman of each committee reported what they were doing. It seems as if the committees are doing their part. October 25th — We chose our banner design today It was made by our honored artist, Charles Hagemier, who also designed our class pin, ring and arm band. We also selected our class motto, " Be wise and rise, " which was submitted by Bernice Miller. November 1st — Well, being as today is Tuesday, we had a class meeting «jid it was just awfully important, too, because we chose our Ivy Day poem and our Ivy Day song. Ursul Pearcy happened to be the lucky one to write our class poem. It was some poem, too. Lucille Dichman composed our Ivy Day song, which made a hit. It was written to the tune of " Just Like a Rainbow. " One of the best times of the year will be next Wednesday, on Ivy Day. Nothing else of special interest happened today. November 3rd — We had a class meeting again today and Mr. Davenport tried to teach us our Ivy Day song. November 4th — Everybody was happy because school closed at 11 :30 in order that we might get to see Marshal Foch. November 5th Our team played Clinton today, but Clinton got the long end of the score, their team making 21 points and Manual none, but still it was some game. Our boys put up a splendid fight, but one could hardly expect them to win from Clinton, a team that has not as yet suffered a defeat this term. November 7th— Another meeting and oh, so important The class, all knowing Wanda Lyday ' s wonderful ability to foresee, chose her as our class prophet. , November 8th — At last Ivy Day came and what a time we had. First, we had our exer- cises in the Auditorium and then we went down in the Gym and danced. Among the cele- brated wall-flowers were Scott Dill and Dorothy Coller, William Kellermeyer and Lucille Dich- man. November 15th We had an awful time choosing our class photographer. Finally Bretzman was chosen to do the flattering. I don ' t see how Elmer Rehrman could be flattered much more. Oh, that marcel wave. November 25th — Now comes the class play try-outs. We are all interested in the class play — especially Ralph York, after the compliment Mr Moffat gave him about his dramatic ability. December 1st — Today we elected Homer Phillips to dispose of our many and valuable possessions, such as Matty Geisler, Harry Rail and Elmer Elder ' s athletic ability, Earl Schultz ' s vocabulary, MBrris Bower ' s appearance, Frances Schatz ' s and Loretta Helmuth ' s ability to get A-plus ' s, Helen Glynn ' s and Maude Walther ' s loud laughter and disturbance in Room 30, Herman Rundberg ' s fond amusement of reading the newspaper at roll call. Helen Aurbach ' s personality, Louis Wide ' s ability to collect information, Jeanne Wilson ' s beauty and Essie Long ' s skill to make posters, as was demonstrated by those which were made to advertise the class play, and last but not least, Cornelia McKay ' s noteworthy position of checker in the south basement. Oh, yes, we made another election today. We elected Chester Lively class giftorian ; he should have been the clas3 jester. December 6th — We didn ' t do much of anything today, but we did find out that the Roines boys are planning to give us a party. December 13th — Mary had to take charge of the meeting again today. The main thing that happened was that Mr. Barnhardt asked the president to appoint a class day committee, but I guess that was enough, being as Mr. Barnhardt blushed so. December 16th — The Roines party is tonight and I am so excited I can ' t write anything now. December 17th — The party was wonderful. It was held in the Gym at night, mind you, at night, and they served punch. Herbert Alley and William Quill hung around the punch bowl an awful lot. I don ' t know whether it was because so many girls were around there or whether they especially liked punch. I found out something new last night. From now on, Irvin Baumbach will please be known as Paul Ebaugh ' s better half, and Scott Dill will please be called Mr. Nothing. I wonder why Harry Schricte did not attend the party last night. January 3rd, 1922 — Class meeting again. We found out today that the first performance of the class play would be given on Wednesday night, January 18th. January 21st — I have been so busy lately trying to sell tickets for the class play that I forgot to write anything. The class plays are over now and with great success, too. Three plays were given, the first one a comedy of childhood, in which Pauline Chastain displayed her wonderful portrayal of the part of a little girl, and Irvin Baumbach, her brother in the play, displays how he can quarrel. Irvin really doesn ' t quarrel when he gets mad, he just . fights. The second play, " Rosalie, " was dramatized by Harold Sherman as Monsieur Bol, and Louise Altum as Madame Bol and Elizabeth Tynan as Rosalie, the maid. The third play, " Neighbors, " was enacted by Mary Johnson as grandma, Austin Gillespie as Peter, the hero in the play ; Jean Gregg as Inez, the heroine ; Harry Martin as Ezra, Lucille Roesener as Mi»s Trott, Helen Murphy as Miss Moran, and Bernice Matthews as Miss Abel. January 24th — Class day was today and, of course, we had a wonderful time, Auditorium exercises, dancing, eating and after-effects. January 25th — This is the last day of school. I appreciate and am sure the class doe3 also, the help and guidance which Miss Knox, Mr. Barnhardt, Mr. Weigler, Mr. Ciunie, Miss Perkins. Miss Wiiliams. Miss Ernst, Miss West. Mr. Davenport, Mr. Holloway, faculty and principal gave us during our senior year. 3mj lag |ta?m Happiness is ours today, to laugh, to sing, to cheer, To brighten every heart and soul, to drive away all fear, For this is the day when joy is supreme, the happiest day of tke year, For this, Oh this is Ivy Day. On this day we plant a root of Ivy ' neath the ground We ' ll watch it grow forever, and we ' ll keep it ' s memory sound, And friends who see it among the rest will know what joy was found On this, Oh this bright Ivy Day. We will all be wise and rise, as does the shining sun; We ' ll climb, as this sprig of Ivy climbs, till our highest point is won, Always reaching upward, never tiring till we ' re done And this, Oh this is Ivy Day. — Ursul Pearey.
