Manners, customs, and time may change, but true friendship never does. It stands forever on a firm foundation. A friend doesn ' t have to test your hon- esty. He takes your faults and virtues as a part of you. He tries to keep you out of trouble, but when you ' re in, he doesn ' t run. Most anyone will help you when your broke, or facing woe, but a friend does something more than that. He will get you back to meet a fresh attack, not fearing to tell you what a fool you ' ve been. Everyone has some- one who is faithful through thick and thin — that ' s a friend. STRIVE ADVANCE SUCCEED STRIVE Strive to reach a worthy goal. Buckle into your task, for victory is never cheap. You can not always ask for commonplace and easy duties. Have courage to bear the pain of hard labor and have patience to wait the while you are slowly climbing toward success. If you ' re afraid of a blow and the sting from it or if you ' re not game enough to keep on fighting when you tire, how are you going to gain your goal? You can ' t. Push through rain and snow just as you would through sunshine. That ' s striving. Never let pleasure mean more than your task, but have faith when your strength seems vain, and then move on. ADVANCE Advance. That ' s the next long, big step toward success. You can ' t be afraid of a jolt or a jar or a set-back. If you are, you ' ve no chance to win. You can not afford to be embittered by defeat, for nothing will retard your ad- vancement more than that. Whatever you set out to be in a trade or profes- sion, don ' t stop until you are rated among the best. You who are to ad- vance will not be indifferent to your task, but you will strive to do your best. The greater your spirit rebounds from some blow, the greater is your will to be somebody here, the more you will work to strive and advance ; then you will know a greater success. SUCCEED Succeed. To you who proved your mettle comes the victory, and you give great sighs of relief. Go back over the first steps toward your triumph. Count the many miserable hours you spent; the times you almost gave up until finally you learned the meaning of suc- cess — a little more to do. You finish some old, hard duty only to meet a new one, some larger goal to pursue. MONDAY SENIORS! SENIOR BOOSTER j®i S S S S ? M l ? J M C ? S J l M i ? C ? M M ? S S S Class History By Irene Bowers Just as everything, struggling for existence, must pass through definite stages of development and come forth a living example of success, so our class of June ' 24 entered upon its first year — a year of difficult undertakings and many ohstacles, especially the disdainful glances from the lofty seniors. After sur- viving this period, we entered upon our next lap towards our goal which high school education assists us to reach. Here it seemed that some of us would fall by the wayside before we had attained that which we had set forth to accomplish, but our foundation, which we had laid in our first year, enabled us to arrive at that long coveted " Seniordom. " October 23, 1923. Realizing that " In union there is strength, " we organized out- class and elected officers who were John Wit, president ; Helen Harmeson, vice- president ; Ruth Emigholz, secretary ; Thomas Neale, treasurer, and Irene Bowers, historian. Since every organization is accustomed to have some distinguishing emblem, the next class meetings were occupied in selecting our class insignia. October 10. A pretty shade of sapphire blue was elected for the class color. October 17. The standard senior class pin was accepted for our class pin. October 24. We chose an attractive, unusual design submitted by Milton Davidson for our armband. October 31. The Ophelia rosebud was chosen for our class flower. November 21. " Strive, Advance, Succeed " became our motto. February 5, 1924. This date marks the beginning of the new semester in which the class play was our first project. February 20. A get-together meeting was held in the girls ' gym for the benefit of our forty new class members. February 26. The mid-year election, or re-election, was held. The results were John Wit, president ; Helen Harmeson, vice-president ; Ruth Emigholz, secretary. March 5. Tom Neale was re-elected treasurer. The elections for the giftorian and willmaker were held. They resulted with Donald O ' Kelley, giftorian, and Vernon Cristee, willmaker. March 11. The National Studio was decided upon to be our photographer. Claude King was elected editor-in-chief of our Senior Booster. Our future was entrusted to the hands of Mary Hill, prophet. In addition, we decided that our class banner should be the one so artistically designed by Frederick Fish. March 28. One of the best senior enterprises ! The First Lady of the Land was presented and was quite a success. April 30. Our Ivy Day program was given. Although the weather man inter- fered a little too much, the exercises in the auditorium were successful, and the party — well, the weather man had nothing to do with it. June 3. Class day ! Paul Case — " Why is the train al- Hershel Seamon — " What did you ways late? " mean by telling Martha I was a fool? Conductor — " What are the waiting Clara Mahr — " Heavens, I ' m sorry, I rooms for? " didn ' t know it was a secret! " SENIOR BOOSTER SENIOR BOOSTER SOMETHING ABOUT EVERYBODY 1. Mr. E. H.

" SENIOR BOOSTER 15 Senior Officers and Senior Booster Staff In the front row of the photograph, on the left side, John Wit, the president of the June 1924 class, may be seen. John was chosen president with a large majority and has shown his class that he can act with precision as a president. Helen Harmeson, vice-president of the June class, stands second in the front row. Helen faithfully carried out her duties as vice-president while the presi- dent was working on the State Discussion Contest. Ruth Emigholz, secretary of the class, is third from the left in the first row. Ruth has worked diligently as secretary, and the records of the class have been kept in fine shape. Thomas Neale, treasurer, is fourth in the row. Tom has worked hard keeping the financial standing of the class up to its par. The treasurer ' s work is no snap and Thomas Neale knows it by this time. Claude King, editor, is last in the front row. Quite a tremendous task was accomplished by the editor of the Senior Booster. Each year the graduating class of the school wants to put out an annual, but this seems to be undesirable, so the editor of the paper decided that it would be a good idea to put out a large Booster. He leaves it to your decision as to the quality and quantity. The last three rows are the members of the Senior Booster staff. These •stu- dents have worked faithfully for weeks to make this the largest and best Senior Booster ever published at Manual. They humbly submit their work to you, and sincerely hope it will meet with your approval. And — in conclusion — they wish to add that they have enjoyed every bit of work on this publication and only wish that the job might have been done better. The second row, from left to right, is as follows : Mildred Bostic, Gladys Steinmetz, Blanche Blakley, Margaret Mertz, and Myrtle Frye. Third row : Irene Bowers, Grace Grimm, Helen Adolay, Ruth Sexson, Jessie Taylor, and Dorothy Feldman. Top row : Vernon Cristee, Lynn Dismore, Clara Mahr, Edgar Roehm, and Paul Duddy. Victor Saunders was unable to be in the photograph. 1G SENIOR BOOSTER sSs ii i5 Class Prophecy By Mary Hill In the year 1939 unbelievable miracles happened. The most astounding of these was that I obtained a position as a society reporter for a promising news- paper called the Indianapolis Booster. When I reported to the editor ' s office I was pleasantly surprised to see that he was no other than my old classmate, Claude King. For old time ' s sake he gave me the job of writing a most interest- ing account of a wedding for the society page. The wedding was to take place that morning, so I hurried off to the church. I left the editor ' s office and entered the elevator, and as I was whizzed down to the main floor I glanced at the elevator man. I recognized John Moore, but I did not speak to him. As I left the elevator I recalled that John had always had high ideals. I stepped into a waiting taxicab, and as I did so I saw that the driver was Alec Williams. Away we whizzed toward the church. At Illinois and Wash- ington streets we were held up by the traffic. I gave the traffic cop an impatient glance; then I looked at him again. I recognized that he was none other than my old classmate Orrel Hoyt. Then my attention was alsoi attracted to a group of people on the corner. People were gaping at two men, who (I could see by their demonstrations) were selling a patent hair tonic. These crafty men were none other than Harry Rabb and Edward Reifeis. My attention was suddenly drawn to a terrible commotion on Washington street. When I asked my driver what had happened, he said that Oscar Herbst, a motorman, had been watching two nice looking women and had almost wrecked the street car. When Alec pointed them out I recognized Isabelle Robinson and Emily Svendson. The traffic signal changed, and I started on my way again. I noticed nothing of interest except a large white mule sign which said that Charles Gorman and Joseph Mitchell were proprietors. I knew that they had many patrons. At last I arrived at the church. I saw a man and woman en tering the church. It was Verne Baldauf and his wife, the former Grace Grimm. They were so absorbed in their conversation that they did not notice me, so I hurried past them into the church. I took my seat in the reporter ' s pew. I had a good view of the whole church. Several other reporters sat near me. One I recognized as Herbert Stewart, the society editor for the Times. His wife (I knew her as Roberta Lamb) was with him. As we were representing rival papers, I turned my back and did not speak to him. I remembered that I had been requested to make a note of all important per- sonages present, so immediately I wrote down that the state ' s governor was present with his wife. Our president of 1924, John Wit; the wife, Margaret Strieblen. Across the aisle from me sat a gray-haired man whom I recognized as Law- rence Ritter. I remembered that Lawrence had always had news about my friends, so I went over to talk with him. He said that he and Walter Dolk had gone into partnership and bought the Flexible Toothpick Factory. He said that several of our famous class members were employed there. Richard Smith was sales manager— he could sell anything. Lawrence ' s private secretary was Elsie Stoiber. Leona McWhirter and Ida Davis were bookeepers ; Milton David- son, Vernon Cristee, and Frederick Oliver had charge of the advertising, while Lester Noerr was head janitor with Russell Johnston, James Burgan, Edwin Harold, Paul Case, and Thomas Neale under him. Lawrence then suddenly remembered to tell me that he was happily married to my friend, Erna Hartman. He continued with his news. He had heard that SENIOR BOOSTER 17 Gordon Leonard had killed Lynn Dismore in a duel over Clara Mahr, and while he was serving his term at Sing Sing, Carl Howard had beaten Gordon ' s time. Lawrence said that Lillie Hunt and Lucille Clay had made a million with a cabaret which specialized in ice water, and they had passed on their source of wealth to Mabel Chavis and Gertrude Burwell. The last bit of information that I received from Lawrence was most pleasant. Frederick Fish had made a small fortune from an invention of a most efficient hairpin sterilizer. I searched the congregation for familiar faces. I saw my two friends, Eugenia Nichols and Charles Parker, engrossed in conversation. Alas ! Cupid had struck home again. In another pew I saw Irene Bowers talking, as usual, to Edith Bullard. They were both renowned Latin teachers, and Edith had lately written a successful book entitled " Why I Am So Brilliant. " Then I saw a pitiable sight. It was my former friend, Lillian Jenkins. She was dressed in black in memory of her late husband, Harold Wallman. I longed to say a few consoling words to her, but was relieved to see that Louella Bailey and her husband, Frederick Eckstein, were doing this. The organist, who was none other than Sylvia Graham, struck a mighty chord. Silence followed and all eyes watched the pulpit. From a small vestibule at the side which led onto the pulpit came the great minister, Reverend Charles Courim. I had heard that this wedding, which had been unavoidably delayed for years, was going to be a most unusual affair, so I was not in the least surprised when I saw, following the minister, Afred Ellis and William Mussmann. dressed in short filmy gowns with dainty white wings attached. They were representing dear little cupids, and they made a big impression on the audience. The doors in the back of the church opened, an d bride and groom entered. They were Hildegarde Kluger and Lawrence Schmitt ; both were looking su- premely happy. The flower girls, whom I recognized as Esther Burge, Bessie Rundberg, Kathleen Cassidy, Dorothy Feldman, June Harman, and Mary Molloy, tripped along before the couple scattering rose petals. The best man was Boyd Courim. He was a football coach at the college where Lawrence Schmitt taught and they had become bosom friends. Boyd ' s wife, who was the former Bessie Meng, was, of course, matron of honor. Behind them all walked eight solemn looking women dressed in black. They were Mary Murphy, Helene Otte, Eva Hochman, Anna Ott, Kathryn Canisius, Artie Lethco, Mary Louise Aichele, and Helen Barry. Evidently they were chief mourners. Paul Duddy was the reliable ring-bearer. When the procession reached the pulpit everyone sat down — even the bride and groom. Custom had changed with time, and it was now the custom to have a short musical program before the marriage, with a recitation after. Some people entered from the small vestibule and seated themselves in the choir. The minister announced that the Strutter ' s Syncopated Orchestra, which was of great renown, would play the introductory number. The orchestra was composed of Valeria Edwards, Jennie Douglas, Charles Davis, Richard Lindsey, Floyd Starks, Carl Wallace, William Smith, Geneva Morrow, and Charleszine Wood. Next the great S. O. S. Radio Singer, Bernice Tyner, rendered a touching solo. The Red Hot Quartette then arose to sing. The four members were Don- ald Henley, Jacob Naperstick, Edith Belle Ruffin, and Victor Saunders. They started out nobly on " Just Before the Battle Mother, " but romantic little Edith spied two famous movie stars, George Stephenson and Herschel Seamon, in the audience and failed to sing. The other three gave up, and the quartette retired in disgrace. Wilbur Anderson and Harry Healey sang a duet. " They Know Not What They Do, " and finally the marriage ceremony started witth due pomp and dignity. The minister muttered for a while in a low, monotonous voice; then clearly and loudly he pronounced the fatal sentence, and Hildegarde and Lawrence were married. The great elocutionist, Virginia Thompson, then recited triumphantly the poem, " It Is Done, " and the wedding was over. The bride and groom made a hasty exit, and as I was anxious to get at the news I followed close behind them. As I hurried out, I saw Margaret Mertz, 18 SENIOR BOOSTER JUNE ' 24 CLASS PROPHECY now a great poet, and she told me that Blanche Blakley, her chum, had recently married Lewis Clark. I could not wait to hear of any of my other old friends, but I hurried to catch up with the bride and groom. As they climbed into the machine, Hildegarde called to me and asked me to get in. She thought that my presence might dis- guise the machine and that then they might avoid the rice — which belief was right. We rode away in safety. Lawrence implored the driver to hurry as it was only a short time before their train left (they were going on a honeymoon) and the driver, who was Edgar Roehm, certainly speeded. As we neared the heavier traffic we went slower, however, and I began to take notice of the pedestrians. I saw a handsomely dressed woman whom I recog- nized as Mildred Bostic. Her husband, Donald O ' Kelley, walked a little ahead of her leading her pet, a rat terrier. I recollected as we passed them that Donald always had had a leading part. A little farther down the street I saw Harold Blair and Ruth Sexson coming out of a lawyer ' s office. I drew my conclusion from their rapt expression, they had just obtained a marriage license. I thought sadly that it was too bad that these marriages could not have taken place at an earlier date, but — better late than never. Edgar stopped the car at a peanut stand and broke himself buying peanuts. The man at the stand was James Reynolds, and Leona Highstreet was roasting the peanuts. We rode on, but at Meridian and Washington streets we came to a dead stop. I saw that there was a parade, so I stepped onto the running board to watch it. I discovered that it was one of those miscellaneous parades which had lately come into great vogue. If someone started them, anyone could follow. On a gorgeous ikmik was seated Minnie Kaplan. In front of her walked Rebecca Goussak and Kathryn Fisher bearing a sign which said, " Minnie for President. " Behind this group cam a beautiful ostrich on whose back was seated Alma Kaster. In front of her walked Irma Lentz and Yetta Greenspan bearing a sign which said, " Alma for Vice. " Next came eight beautiful women who were fashion plates for a big department store. They were Dorothy McKay, Blanche Hough, Myrtle Johnson, Evelyn Kroot, Elsie Ittner, Alma Bauman, and Lillian Holman. Then came an adver- tisement for a popular vaudeville show ; La Verne Chastain and Myrtle Frye represented the midgets who were at the show all that week. Hazel Fuller and Marguerite McDaniel, their body guards, walked sedately behind them. Then came a most impressive group of men. They had uniform gray suits with the conspicuous letters " S C D " written across the front. The group was composed of a great many men. Proudly I noticed that many of them had been my classmates. They were Russell Stonehous e, Herman Vollmer, Elwyn Tyler, Chester Newman, Firth Smith, and Philip Cohen. Later I discovered, to my dismay, that the letters " 8 C D " meant Street Cleaning Department. Last came a shrieking bunch of rebels. With a sad heart I recognized Meyer Kline, Wilbur Holle, George Cecil, and Herman Klasing. They were rebelling against woman tyranny. George Cecil seemed to be their leader, and I sighed to think what a terrible life his poor wife, Ruth Emigholz, must be leading. Lawrence had been impatient at the delay and Edgar speeded on quickly. We bumped a banana cart, and when I looked around, I saw Edward Miller and his wife (I recognized Martha Thielman) frantically trying to recover the goods. Then, to Lawrence ' s disgust, traffic was blocked again. We were in front of a motion picture house, and I saw to my amazement Helen Adolay energetically chewing gum and selling tickets at t he ticket booth. The poster in front of the show announced that the film star .Helen Harmeson, would be there next week in a play called " School Days, " Louis Weiland would play opposite her, and Estella Austermiller would take the villainous part. Well, finally we arrived at the depot. Lawrence bought the tickets, and we hurried up to the train. It was not ready to leave, so Hildegarde stood and talked awhile. While we were talking, I happened to spy the engineer. Hilde- garde agreed with me that it was Ernest Owens. The train then whistled, and SENIOR BOOSTER 19 the conductor called, " All aboard, " and Hildegard left me. When I looked at the conductor again, I saw that he was Hersil Hadley. Just as the train pulled out Elizabeth Blake came running up the stairs. She was a picture of despair when she saw that she had missed the train. I learned that she had intended to go to Chicago to enter a debate. She was going to defend Alma Cook, who had lately been drawn into the Teapot Dome Oil scandal. I left her there with her woe and started back to the office. As I walked north on Illinois street I met three very indignant looking women. They were Jessie Taylor, Carrie Cook, and Fanny Dock. I asked them what was the trouble, and Jessie said that they were on their way to court. The night before Jessie had taken Carrie and Fanny riding in her new airplane, the tail-light had gone out, and they had been arrested. She lamented that she would get at least thirty days as Malcolm Wachstetter was the judge. I walked on and met some more of my classmates. They were Edna Staub, Margaret Wade, Emily Jackson, and Catharine Young. They looked very sad. My curiosity again got the better of me, and I stopped them and asked what was the trouble. Edna sobbed that they were on their way to the hospital to see Ellen Dalton. As I continued on my way, I remembered having seen in the paper that Ellen had been hit by a machine driven by Gladys Steinmetz. Gladys had been arrested, but her most efficient woman lawyer, Vera Cox, had freed her. I decided that I had better get my lunch before I went back to the office, so I stopped at a restaurant, the proprietor of which was Annie Wooley. I was waited on by two very efficient waitresses, Verna McTagertt and Kathleen Grayson. While I ate, Kathleen talked to me. She said that the boss, Annie, was very cross and that she had reason to be as she could find no better cooks than Mabel Hart and Irene Cummins. Kathleen asked me if I remembered Eleanor Hardy. Of course I did. She informed me that Eleanor had recently married Alden Blacketer and that they were now applying for a divorce. She said that Elsie Heil, Josephine Prout, and Marie Strieblen were now mis- sionaries on the Sahara desert. Finally I left the restaurant and went on to the editor ' s office. I had enough news for ten papers, and so I decided to call it a day. And I did ! Amen. Buckets are needed to catch the tears of the graduating seniors. It will be a long vacation for the lazy and a short one for the hard workers. ■ ■■■■■»■■■■» The Booster wishes to thank Mr. F. M.

The play was written to show the true character of Aaron Burr, to lessen the prejudice people show for him. A duel was fought between Aaron Burr and Hamilton in which Hamilton was killed. Dolly Todd found that Burr merely fascinated her while she loved Madison. The story gave a great in- sight into character. SENIOR BOOSTER 21 i$jls s is Class Will BY VERXOX CRISTEb It sure appears as if we were gonna have to write a will. Yes sir, we ' re either gonna have to write a will now, or a will ain ' t gonna be writt. That ' s all ! Let ' s see now; how in the deuce does a person start one of the bothersome things anyway? Oh, yes. We-ah, we the graduating members of the graduating class of June, 1924, of the Charles E. Emmerich Manual Training High School located in Indianapolis, Indiana, U. S. A. (phew that ' s a mouthful) being of sound mind, that is with the exception of Donald O ' Kelley and a few others, do hereby acclaim and shout at the tops of our voices our last will and testament. When we die please bury us deep so that our wings won ' t protrude through the surface of the ground and thus get in the way. Perhaps Ernest Owens and Wilbur Holle won ' t have to be buried as deep as the rest, so that will save you some work. To the members of the January ' 25 class we do solemnly bequeath a genuine crotcheted bicycle invented and made by Helen Harmeson so that they may at- tend their classes a little less erratically. To those who do not think that this is the most illustrious and talented class that ever stuck a nose inside a book, we bequeath one great slab of mincemeat pie in the hopes that a glorious nightmare will follow each and every bite. We give freely and generously all of our excess knowledge — Herman Klasing, William Mussman, and " Zip " Courim are excused from this — to the freshmen and sophomores. They need it! To Miss Perkins and Miss Sanders we give one of those thingumbobs that does away with all extra doodads and thus makes the giving of class plays much easier. To the freshman girls we bequeath all of the dolls in the class — that is we ' ll bequeath most of them. Grace Grimm and Ruth Emigholz don ' t seem to want to part with theirs. To Ivan Ivanovitch and the rest of his " Reds " ' we give a white flag to wave when his red one wears out. To Miss Wheeler, Miss Brady, and Miss Knox we give our profound thanks for their efforts in making our class the most successful one up to date. We will to the would-be stenographers of Manual Mildred Bostic ' s ability to tickle the keys of a typewriter. We will Donald O ' Kelley ' s rattle to Leon Hutton so the January class will have something to amuse them at senior meetings. To the gym classes we think that we ' ll give or bequeath Virginia Thompson ' s dancing ability ; however, she ' s uncertain whether she wants to part with it or not. Last we give to the school so sterling and pure a record that all other classes will be startled and blinded by it. We appoint Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb executor of this, our last will and testament. We offer our most sincere thanks and appreciation to all those who have in many ways so kindly and gen- erously contributed to the success of the June ' 24 class. 22 SENIOR BOOSTER MANUAL ' S CRACK RIFLE TEAM Lots of pep has been shown by the R. O. T. O. the past year. Our rifle team won the silver cup for first place in the Fifth Army Corps Area match. Some of the individual high places went to Manual cadets, notable among them being Sgt. Frank Schmedel, who was top man in the whole Corps Area and fifth shot in the entire United States. The fine work of the team was due to the fine coaching of Sgt. McComas, U. S. A. Returns from the national match, in which Manual also fired, have not been received as yet. We expect, however, to place very high in that shoot as the cadets turned in excellent scores. The cup won by the team was presented to school with appropriate exercises in the audi- torium. There will be some losses by graduation, but the reserve team which Sgt. McComas has been hiding away, coupled with the fine nucleus from this year ' s team, should place Manual among the top liners. Several parades were held by the Indianapolis schools during the spring. Manual ' s unit as usual made them sit up and take notice. Col. Biddle, on his annual inspection, praised the local cadets on their soldierly carriage and morale. Fifteen cadets received commissions at the R, O. T. C. carnival held in the auditorium on May 26. Major Herbert Wampner headed the officer list. A bit of military aspect was introduced at Manual with the adding of the ceremony of retreat at the close of the school day, at which time the school flag is hauled down by the cadet flag guard under command of Lieut. Russell Stonehouse. Those in the photo from left to right, first row, are as follow : Lester Noerr, Gaylord Sweaney, Frank Schmedel, Wilfred Rafert, and James Demetrius.

SENIOR BOOSTER 23 IVY DAY PAGE SPLENDID PROGRAM On Wednesday, April 30, the June Seniors upheld one of the oldest and lovliest traditions of Manual — the planting of the Ivy Vine. As usual, the weather was against us. It rained. This, however, did not spoil the ceremonies held in honor of the occasion. A part of the program which was presented in the new audi- torium was in the form of a pageant. This pageant reviewed important events during the four years we sen- iors graced Manual ' s halls. The suc- cessful graduate looked back on school days and saw again the classroom, athletic achievements, loyalty to the old Alma Mater, rewards that were given for scholarship, music and art — not material rewards, but the reward of learning. Last he saw what to him at that time was the height of achieve- ment — commencement. After the pageant, which was pre- sented perfectly, Mr. McComb gave a very helpful and inspiring talk. He took as his subject our class motto, " Strive, Advance, Succeed, " explaining clearly the derivation and significance of each word. His explanation showed us what was expected of every loyal Manualite, and the ideals which we were to live up to all through life. After the program in the auditorium a dance was given in the girls ' gymna- sium to which the faculty, the January seniors, and the post-graduates were invited. The orchestra was composed of underclassmen, and we danced to their excellent syncopation. Despite all efforts to have everyone join in the dancing, there were the usual wall flowers. To keep up the enthusiasm of all, other means of diversion were used, namely — two three-legged races both of which were most discourteously won by the January seniors. They had no respect whatsoever for our feeling, nor our racers. In spite of the weather and the wall flowers, the day was unani- mously declared a success. We only hope the January seniors have an equally successful Ivy Day — but we doubt it. The program was as follows : 1. March — June seniors. 2. Piano Solo — Edwin Harold : The Dwarf Dance ; The Warrior ' s Song. 3. Poem — The Ivy — Margaret Mertz.

OF OUR TEAMS
SENIOR ROOSTERSENIOR BOOSTER 25 CLASS OF JUNE 1924 ATHLETES Helen Harmeson has played basket- ball on the girls ' team for four years. She has a " basket eye " that was not excelled by either of her brothers. The team will be weakened by Helen ' s graduation. Dorothy McKay, another of our girl basketball tossers, played in the same games with Helen and her ability will be missed when Tech and Shortridge are met next year. La Verne Chastain, another girl bas- ket tosser, will be missed when the team lines up next year. Dorothy Feldman, called " Dot, " is one of Manual ' s leading athletesses. She played on the team against Short- ridge and has taken part in many prac- tices. Boyd Courim, more commonly known as " Zip, " has played football for two years and baseball for one year. He was the star of the last football team at the quarterback position. He played in the backfield and acted as captain of the team in 1923. He was chosen on the all-city team in 1922 and 1923. His place on the eleven will be hard to fill next year. He has also played in the outfield of our baseball team in years past. Charles Courim, that fighting blonde, plays both football and baseball. He made the all-city football team the two years he played. He also played base- ball for two years. He played half- back on the football team and left field on the varsity nine. Louis Weiland, our snappy little for- ward, played on the varsity during the last season and made a good showing. Louis has been in basketball from his freshman year until now. Lawrence is the long boy of the bas- ketball team of ' 23 and ' 24. This is his first year at Manual. He came from a Fort Wayne high school. Charles Parker came out for track in his senior year and ran in several meets. If he had tried out in his for- mer years, he certainly would have made the state squad. Lewis Clark is another fellow who came out too late to make the state squad. He ran in several meets and was a member of one of the relay teams. Oscar Herbst is another heavy boy of the class. He played football in 1923 and participated in several var- sity games. William Mussmann, our stalwart football guard, is another man to leave. Football is the only sport Bill plays, but he plays it well. His fighting spirit and rotund figure will be missed when the call for football is issued next fall. He has held a position on the varsity for three years. Verne Baldauf has taken part in ath- letics ever since he came to Manual. In his freshman year he took part in freshman track and football. In his sophomore and junior years he played basketball on the second team. In his senior year he was one of the stars on the varsity basketball team, playing at the center position, and now he is mak- ing a strong bid for all-city first base- man on our varsity baseball nine. Harold Blair, our star dash and quarter-mile man, has made quite a record for the season. This is his first and last year on the squad, as he came from another high school. With a few more years on the squad he would have been an all-state man. Frederick Eckstein also graduates with the June class. Basketball is the only sport he has participated in, but he has done well at it. He was a star guard on the second team and fre- quently played guard on the varsity. He came out for the first time during his senior year, but he made good. George Cecil is another well-known athlete of our class. George played both baseball and football. He is a brainy and a hard hitting football player. He played outfield for the baseball team. It will be hard to fill George ' s shoes this year when the dif- ferent calls go out. Wilbur Anderson made his first at- tempt at athletics last fall when he came out for football. Although this was his first try, he made good as a substitute guard. Thomas Neale is another football player to leave with our class. This is the only sport Tom tried for and he certainly made a success of it. Claude King, the busiest student in school, had time to make the state track team in 1923. While editing the Booster last fall, he played on the var- sity basketball squad a while ; then his tasks piled up and he played on the seconds. 20 SENIOR BOOSTER A REVIEW OF THIS SCHOOL YEAR ' S ATHLETICS Manual ' s teams have done very well during the past school year. Our teams have won no championships, but our opposition in all games knew they were up against something. We will endeavor to give a summary of the sports for the last school year. Our football team made a good showing with eight wins, one tie, and one loss. The first game was played between two Manual teams. " Zip " captained one team, and Huber, the other. The teams finished with seven points each. Our team was made up of some of the following men : B. Courim, Huber, Noll, L. Hutton, C. Courim, Malone, Littlejohn, Snodgrass, Higgs, Cecil, Kellermeyer, Neale, Snowball, E. Hutton, Cochrane, Harmeson, Merrick, Rose, Mussmann, Lively, Vollrath, Woerner, Anderson, Roessner, Prokl, and Stoeffier. Our team tied up with Brazil with 20 points each in the first game on Irwin field. The team journeyed to Wabash and " Zip " passed to Higgs from the ten-yard line for the only touchdown. Newcastle took a good flop on their field to a count of 32 to 2. Peru fell to a tune of 31 to on Irwin field in the fourth game. Our team traveled to Evansville and took their measure, 3 to 0. " Zip " place-kicked for the three markers. The team then went to Anderson and administered a walloping to that team, 109 to 0. Sadness then hit the Manual camp for Tech knocked us with a 52 to score. Greenfield went down 45 to on Irwin field for a revenge. Shortridge was defeated in our last game 13 to 0. Our basketball team opened its season just before the close of the football season in a game with Broad Ripple at their gym. We lost a close one 26 to 25 in the last moment of the game. Greencastle came over to our gym and knocked our lads with 20 points to our 9. Poor foul shooting during the season lost sev- eral games. Franklin gave our team a good cleaning with a score of 42 to 12 in their gym. Frankfort was next met in their gym and another downfall of the red and whites occurred. Frankfort made 62 while our team registered 24. Ben Davis fell by one point 27 to 26 in our next home game, and then Kokomo was defeated by a score of 37 to 36 in our gym. The Alumni team soaked our lads in the next game. Anderson then evened up the football score with a 53 to 20 score. Southport, future sectional champions, defeated our boys 30 to 24 in their gym. Columbus took our count on their floor by a score of 32 to 13. Manual lost fighting to the splendid Tech team 24 to 22 in our second city series game. Shelbyville liked our floor and looped them in for a victory. Shortridge " stepped out " in the second half and our team " fell down. " The result : 20 to 22 in favor of the North Siders. On a two-day trip Bloomington defeated our team with a 40 to 20 score and Bedford won with 42 to 21. Browns- burg took our count with 27 to 24 on our floor. Hopewell split our plans at Franklin, and we lost 39 to 22. In the sectional Shadeland went down with a score of 20 to 11 in a poor game. Ben Davis fell the next morning 22 to 18. Tech then spoiled our hopes Saturday afternoon 27 to 23. The first call for track went ou the eleventh of March. One hundred and thirty-eight boys turned out. Connersville went down for the first time in a dual meet for four years. The score was 50 to 49. The Manual team journeyed to Kokomo and lost to the " State Champtions of 1924 " by a large score. The Manual squad then " put it over " Martinsville and Shortridge in a triangular meet the next day. Our team took second the next day in another triangular meet at Brazil with Brazil and Greencastle. Noblesville took our tracksters ' count at Willard Park. Five of our men went to Gary, but no places were taken. Culver Military Academy pounced on our team at their track and we lost. In the sectional six men, Malone, McCallister, Hutton, Rubush, Marshall, and Prior, won the right to enter the State, but we unfortunately received no points in the State track meet. The first call for baseball, issued on March 11, was answered by a large num- ber of boys. The team " took " Southport with a score of 9 to 1 on the Southport diamond. Shadeland suffered a 17 to 1 loss at the hands of the Manualites in the second game. Lawrence " took " our boys by a score of 3 to 2 in our third game. New Augusta sunk before the Manual swatters 23 to in the fourth game. Greenfield lost to our lads 3 to 2 in a thirteen-inning affair. Shortridge then went down before our team 3 to 0. Technical then took our measure 2 to 1 in a fine game on the Tech field. As this went to press early, no later reports could be taken, but we are proud of our baseball team.

Then on occasions, such as the celebration of National Music Week—this year from May 4 to May 11—the orchestra takes its part in providing good music in harmony with the intent of the week—to foster a love for and an interest in good music. There are thirty-two players in the organization now, but a few more can be accommodated, especially violin or cello play ers. for the annual commencement program, and we look for an even larger enrollment next fall.

Perkins, tofjo so capablp anb successfully coacfjeb our Class $lap, toe, tfje class of Januarp, ' 24, affectton= atelp bebicate this our Senior Poofter THE BOOSTER Freshman, full fledged, the class of January, ' 24, arrived in a body way back in 1920, and applied for admittance at the gates of the temple of knowl- edge known as " Emmerich Manual Training High School. " A pert looking set of youngsters, as Samantha would say. As this elegant crowd waited in the Auditorium, several youngsters spent the time trading jack-knives or penny looking glasses, and speculating as to the cost of the big clock in the hall. A little girl who said her name was Juanita Black bet it cost $237.77. One of the number, namely John Scott, marched boldly up to a new friend and invited him to join Ed Winning in a game of marbles. The boy addressed declined, as he cast a doubtful look at the knees of his new trousers. The girls sat demurely on one side of the Auditorium and behaved surprisingly well, save two or three, who becoming restless, sauntered out to watch a game of marbles. The avowed aim of the class was to wrest from the ever-forbidding covers of text books a great portion of the world ' s store of learning, and to show such persons as Juniors and Seniors that all Freshmen are not so green as they may appear. When January came, we had learned how to get excused for all absences, how to yell, and how to find the gym, the auditorium and the lunch room, and how to boost Manual. Then came our Sophomore year. How we worked to make it perfectly clear that we were Sophomores and not simply Freshmen. Next our Junior year was ushered in, and we began to study in earnest. The big events of the year were Manual ' s football and basketball champion- ships. Then came the last and most important year, our Senior year! Early in the term a " get acquainted " meeting was held. That ' s why we know each other, certain members especially, so well. Miss Knox, our devoted sponsor, read us that section of the Constitution pertaining to the election of officers. As officers are such necessary " things, " we proceeded to the election. Our choice was as follows: President Alonzo Martin Vice-President Mark Snodgress Secretary Ruth Mabee Treasurer Herbert Pasch Historian Chas. Menges Of course, we had to have a pin. The June Class pin was adopted as the standard pin. We wanted to fix it so that any person could distinguish at a glance from such students as Tech and Shortridge Seniors. George Anderson and Wilfred Rafert were appointed pin boys. Much talk among the Seniors as to what our class color should be. And after numerous discussions and disputes, the class chose that brazen color — orchid! Helen Brennen entered the designer ' s hall of fame, her design being selected for our arm bands. The arm band business had been settled only five minutes, when our President suggested that we should have a motto. We decided on " To Be Rather Than to Seem. " " Say it with flowers! " Our President asked for our class flower to be chosen. The class said it with orchid sweet peas. To Miss Perkins, who was ill at that time, we sent a potted plant. The last meeting of the first semester of our Senior year was spent in the discussion of the " D " question, and the " Bottom Fifty " question. THE BOOSTER Class; Visitor? The class wishes to expiess their thanks and appreciation to the June, ' 23, class tor the g eat times we had at their parties and exercises. Just about th s time our o.d friend, Air. acation, paid us a visit, so the destiny of our class was forced to lounge around for three months. On September 25, we held our first meeting of the new term which was commenced with much confidence and pep. The only change in officers was a new man to guard our £a e, or at least its combination. This min was Vance McAllister. Our president jolted up the committees and put them to work right away. ' Miss Perkins loo " ed us over to see what sort of heroes and heroines she could scare up for the Class Play. October the eleventh! Ah! A party, and it sure was wonderful. A cr-minittee was appo ' nted to get bids from numerous photographers so that in the future we could recall how handsome we used to be. Miss Perkins cai ed for try-outs for the class play. A committee was selected to decide upon our class play. Three or four Seniors had their pencils in order, and they submitted c " e:igns for the banner. Again Helen Brennen ' s pencil moved best. Ivy Day songs and poems were read and selected by a comm ' ttee. The poem chosen had been written by Florence Keller, and the song by Louise Gibbs. Miss Moore, whom we heartily thank for her kind help, suggested that we give a loyalty pageant. So well was this pageant presented that Mr. McComb asked that it be given before the school. Of course, we had a party. What would Ivy Day be without one? What ' s this? Final tryouts for the class play! The committee chose the " Toymaker of Nuremburg. " Who wants to take our pictures? Bids and samples are still being accepted. Two weeks later we decided to let Mr. Bvetzman make us prettier. No class is complete without a giftorian, a prophet, and a will maker. Maurice Woodruff was elected to write a prophecy and Albion Hardin, the will. Herman Haitman was considered funny enough to be giftorian. Mr. Holloway spoke about the Senior Booster and Florence Keller was elected Editor-: ' n-Chief. by acclamation, and in turn chose her staff. We decided at once that we would have the Greatest Senior Booster, We voted to dedicate the Booster to Miss Perkins. The Class Play was a howling success, and both evening and afternoon performances were well attended. Good work! Congratulations to all those connected in any way with the play. Our president brought up the idea of the J. J. Club which was organized in the hope of keeping the Seniors together after they have graduated from school. He also reminded us of the Christmas Pa ty on the 21st, but there was little danger of any one forgetting the date, place and all that goes with it We were asked to push t e Roines Alumni Basket Ball Game and Dance and did so to the best of our ability. The party was surely a success, the best one since the year ' 01. Now that the vacation was over, the class looked forward to the time for Class Day. Some of us are leaving Manual soon, others will leave in June, but all of us feel that pang of regret when we depart from dear old Manual. The January Class wishes to thank Miss Knox for her ceaseless and un- tiring efforts in the a ' d of our class. Miss Perkins for the careful coaching of the play, Miss Coleman, Miss Lieber and Mr. Barnhart for their willing help and encouragement, the teachers in the Art Department, Mr. Holloway, end the editors, of the Booster, and all those who helped the class attain its great success. THE BOOSTER ?7lPR rP By Maurice Woodruff. Before I start upon this " noble " work, I wish to ask, to request, and even to implore, that the members of the Senior Class please withhold any missiles. such as bricks, etc., which they may intend to hurl at me, until after I have had time to make a fair getaway. H. G. Wells was kind enough to lend me his time machine in order that I might more easily visit the future and find what it holds for the members of said class. This time machine is a wonderful thing. Without it, I would indeed have been out of luck. The following is a true record of the positions held in life, in the year 1937, by the greatest and best class of old Manual, the class of January, ' 24. Alonzo Martin, our honored and esteemed president, had just been elected Governor. He was hailed everywhere as the " boy wonder. " We always did say that he would make good. Grace Driftmeyer was leader of the agitation for equal rights for women. She expected to enter politics (national, if you please), the next campaign. She was too busy to marry Herb (Wampner), who rather than to be separated from her, had forsaken his military aspira- tions, and had become her private secretary. You will be pleased to learn that the crown " sheik " of filmdom in 1937 was, or will be, Harold Woodrum. Harold, upon inheriting his million dollar Kansas farm had allowed his photo to be published nationally. A motion picture magnate saw it, made haste to sign him, and you know the rest. Helen McGinty played opposite him in his epoch-making pictures. The country at large was gasping over the phenomenal rise to filmglory of Mary Christian. She had already eclipsed such stars as Corinne Griffith, Norma Talmadge, etc., and would soon assume the position long held by Mary Pickford. Hardee Kord was waxing prosperous by means of his comic strip in which he featured the likeness of Albion Hardin, Ed Winning and Helen Brennen. Marguerite (Fisher) was holding " down " her end of family expenses by ap- pearing in a vaudeville dance act with Frances Kunkle and Katherine Wacker. Charles Dosch had risen to the capacity of president of the local theatre ushers ' , taxi drivers ' and chauffeurs ' union. Virginia Wilmington was a " steno " in Wilbert Steinkamp ' s office. Wilbert had made Indianapolis famous with his prohibition drink. Marie Wurster was president of the anti-tobacco league. After Earl Hansen had made his fortune with his Hansen ' s Clubs, he had settled down to local politics, and expected to be elected mayor on a blue-laws ticket. The United States minister to Abyssinia, Serene Hall, with his secretary, Walter Payne, and his linguist, James Watts, set sail that summer. The College Humor magazine had just moved to Indianapolis and signed Ona Manion as staff artist. Eleanor Hansen, who had just married Alfred Rafert, said she had great difficulty in distinguishing Alfred from Wilfred. Their employer, Henry Bettge, of the Bettge-Thatcher Potato-Masher and Safety Pin Corporation, had the same trouble. I couldn ' t see George Anderson, and I was sorry for it, but Herman Hart- man, the owner of a traveling freak and curiosity circus, who had hired Verri Proctor as mummy and Richard Moore as an ossified man, told me that the dear boy had become a general in the Salvation Army. I saw one thing in Indianapolis which caused me much deep grief. It almost broke my heart when I saw two such talented young men as George Erber and Clifford Russell on the corner of Illinois and Washington streets THE BOOSTER Cla s Propiw selling patent medicines and calling them at the tops of their voices. But my degpair was simply unbearable when I recognized Robert Driscoll and Ruth Mabee doing a charity act. Bob was standing against a building, wear- ing shaded glasses, a tramp outfit, had a " blind " sign on his chest and was holding a cup in his hand. He was singing a sorry song, while Ruth, dressed up to match, was playing en a dilapidated fiddle. Marie Zorn and Juanita Black had a neat little office on the Circle. On their window, these words were printed: " We will have you married in 30 days or we will refund your money. " Vera Zimmerman and Lena Rothfeder operated a beauty parlor next door. Markie Snodgress, alter having made the AL-American for three succes- sive years on the Yale team, accepted a position as a football coach there. Not a bit surprised. Harry Snowball grew equally famous with Harvard. But Harry came back home to live with Edna Phillips. I learned that Willie Mussman, bad boy, had run away from home, and gone apparently from off the face of the earth. No wonder no one found him, he is such a small chap. Max Bledstein killed Guy Gurvitz in a fight over Esther Dobrowitz. While Max was serving life, Ralph Fink " sailed in " and reaped the coveted prize. Morris Gavin died of a broken heart. My nerves were almost shattered, when I went into a cheap restaurant owned by Guy Vinci, and saw John Scott and Robert Thompson serving as waiters. What cruel fortune could have so deserted two such intelligent youths? But Charles Menges was one student in whom I was not disappointed. He continued studying and doing more studying until he became a national au- thority in bugology and almost learned the language. He knew bugs from A to Z. Frances Kopp and Caroline Hummel were manicurists at a downtown barber shop. Florence Keller had become editor of the Life magazine, still using that writing talent of hers. Joe Adelman and Joe Kiovsky were giving famous debates on the ques- tion, " Which is More Likely to Have Prohibition, Venus or Mars? " Very popular discussions. Louis Need had for ten years wooed Dorothy Stoll, but she still turned bim down cold. The poor boy nearly suffered the same tragic end that Morris Gavin did. Alice Blue was playing the leading woman in Shakespearean plays in. New York. She seemed to be a universal favorite. In a potter ' s field at Reno, Nevada, I viewed the nameless grave which I knew (through my marvelous intuition) to contain the earthly remains of Maurice Sheridan. I learned that he landed in the town crestfallen and heart- broken at the cruel misfortune which forced him to go through life unpopular and friendless. He killed himself before anyone could learn his identity. Hence, the potter ' s field. Herb Pasch became warden of the state penitentiary at Michigan City and hired Kenneth Young to entertain the prisoners with stories each evening. William Gray was a preacher. He always was such an innocent chap. Bill Herr, my old stand-by, had another reason for going to South America than to practice medicine. He also went to try to forget Marie Zorn. Bob Patrick and Bob Leerkamp obtained the local coughdrop agency. They were sole distributors in Indianapolis of coughdrops and chewing gum. Lloyd Byrne made a million on jelly-beans. In fact he was known as the " jelly-bean king. " Richard Kocher was factory manager of his firm. Annie Gill and Frances Holeman conducted a laundry business in W. I. Charles Hare was the middleweight boxing champ of the country in ' 37. Charley sure was one strong chap. The only thing between him and the heavyweight title was about 50 pounds.

I — To all those who have in any way contributed to the success of the January, ' 24 Class we offer our most sin- cere thanks and appreciation. 14 THE BOOSTER ®uv principal MR. McCOMB Today you Seniors say good-bye to E. M. T. H. S. as a school, but you ' ll never forget it as a place where you have had many happy times. You have been through four hard years of work. They have been stren- uous, but nevertheless you have reaped a worth-while reward. The memory of the parties, games, and everything else at E. M. T. H, S. wOl always re- main, as will the thought that you have at last succeeded in reaching the top, of the high school ladder of suc- cess! You will go out into the world, and it will be entirely new and strange to you. But the fact that you have completed a high school course will stand well for you. We will all miss you, but you will be satisfied in knowing that you are doing well and helping to keep up the reputation of old Emmerich Manual Training High School. As a Senior is about to leave the old school, and take his place in the world, he looks backward over the days I e spent as a student at E. M. T. H. :s. . It is with a feeling of deep regret and almost sorrow that he anticipates receiving his diploma, and turning his back on the old school. True, it is somewhat of a thrill to get out into the world, but one can never forget his high school days. Pour short ye:irs ago, the present Senior entered the door as a F esh- man, as green as any Freshman that ever entered E. M. T. H. S. After struggling desperately for a year, he finally gained enough knowledge of high school ways to become a Sopho- more and lord it over the Freshmen. Another year of endeavoring and he attained the rank of Junior. After many trials and disappoint- ments he entered the ranks of a dig- nified Senior, during which he en- joyed more or less prominence, espe- cially if he was endowed with some sort of a talent. But now all the activities are over ; the Senior looks back over these four years, and with a feeling of regret re- views the events that happened when he was an active member, and always looking ahead to what the next term would bring. Thanks to the founders of the Booster he has something permanent to remember the old school by. So, goodbye, Manual, we will leave you in body but not in mind, for we will remember you as long as we live! THE BOOSTER IHLETIC CALblKWooD MARK SNGD3RESS. Mark, a two-year man, will ue missed when the football team linis up next 3 ear. He played quarterback and halfback in fine fashion this year.
