Ivy Day The June ' 25 Ivy Day on Wednesday. April 8, was a success of the highest degree. The class wishes to give its heartiest thanks to Miss Moore, who wrote and directed the pageant which was presented, and to the accommodat- ing weather man who sent sunshine in- stead of rain to witness the planting of our ivy. The pageant was given in three parts : The first part was the choosing of the ivy by the spirit of our class ; the second one presented the charac- terization of the five qualities on which our school is founded : excellence, man- liness, truth, honor, and sincerity ; and the last part was the presentation of the ivy hy our president, Alwin Iverson, the acceptance by Mr. McComb, with the trowel ceremony by our president and the president of the January ' 26 class, Wilbur Noll.

PRETTY LITTLE GREEN LEAF ' D IVY Ivy green, with emerald sheen, ( ' leave to our Manual, Ever keep striving. To live and keep thriving. May ' ' twenty-five " be kept alive, With memories we love well. May they impart in every heart Love for our Manual. Chorus : Pretty little green leaf ' d Ivy, Summer time ' s coming, wait and see, Every gentle zephyr in the spring time, Will make us laugh with gladness, Will drive away all sadness, You will grow then, green leaf ' d Ivy, Kissed by the sun and dew. On dear Manual ' s soil you ' ll soon be growing, Yes growing, growing, growing, Green leaf ' d Ivy, be thou true. Ivy dear, throughout the year, Cling to our Manual, Ivy, now we plant you, Joyously plant you, To you we pledge anew, Our love for Manual. A school true blue, true thru, and thru, Long live our Manual. Our Fa r ew ell Good-by, old Manualites ! Good-by, and good luck, and God bless you ! For four years we ' ve been here, living the big Manual life, making friendships right and left, with just now and then a little thought of the vague, distant time when we should leave old Manual forever. Now — ' though sometimes yet we can hardly believe it — the time is almost come when we will say good-by to everybody for the last time. We ' ve planted our ivy vine with the ideal that it will give of our love for Manual all through the years — we ' ve had our class play — just a few more days, a few more hours, a few more minutes, until we go. Good-by, then, to everybody whom we ' ve learned to love during these four glory- laden years. Good-by, then, to all the Manual haunts, the Manual joys, the Manual life — Good-by. We, the graduating members of the June 1925 class of the Charles E. Em- merich Manual Training High School, Indianapolis, Indiana, U. S. A., do realize that our natural days here at Manual are conceivably few, and that we must will to our beneficiaries all of our laboriously achieved possessions which have come into our keeping during our brief four years of experience as true Manualites. 1. To the freshmen we leave the ever helpful and inspiring Manual faculty, to whom we are so deeply indebted for our astoundingly scholastic career. 2. To future Frenchmen, such persons as Harry King and a few others, we will Helen Ridout ' s most accreditable ability to sing the Marseilles. 3. To the unfortunates among our underclassmen who are seemingly unable to arrive at school on time, Eva Myers, Evelyn Coleman, and Gladys Emrich not included in this, we will, or more appropriately, bequeath Joe Trost ' s " Rattling Good Lizzy. " 4. We will to the school many more charming May Queens, like our own Bessie Sellers. 5. We bequeath Thelma Tacoma ' s faculty class play ticket customers to future class play ticket vendors. 6. We leave Ed. Eichman ' s cool disposition and his reassuring smile to those who suffer from fear of apoplexy when report cards are due. They will neces- sarily appreciate it. 7. To the track men we give Paul Volrath ' s ability to keep the cinders flying into his opponents ' eyes. 8. We leave Virginia Keith ' s eminent business ability to the disposal of the commercial department. 9. We give to the lunch room a bronze tablet bearing a life-size engraving of a dish of good old Manual beans, in hopes that they will be fully remembered if ever their hunger soothing powers are found to be inadequate. 10. We give Norbert Sack ' s stately military figure to future R. O. T. C. com- manding officers. 11. To striving young actors and actresses of the January ' 26 class we be- queath the ability of Cleora Robertson and Eugene Coffin, and their exquisite sup- porters of the cast, to make a senior class play an uproarious success. 12. To our worthy and most honorable successors, the seniors of the 1926 class, we give munificently of our rare excess ability to do things in that manner in which only we have been able to do them. 13. To all the members of the faculty whom we realize have treated us ever kindly, freely, willingly, and encouragingly, we will our profound thanks and admiration. 14. To Miss Perkins and Miss Sanders we will our hearty thanks for their attentive efforts in helping us make our class play greater and better than any before. 15. To Miss Knox, Miss Brady, and Miss Moore we give our sincerest appre- ciation for their willing and never tiring efforts in making our senior year an ever memorable one. 16. Lastly, we leave to our school a record that will ever stand out to signify, to giorify, and to keep within Manual ' s sacred walls a cherished memory of these June 1925 graduate seniors. We appoint Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb executor of this, our last will and dying testament. SENIOR BOOSTER THE BOOSTER PUBLISHED BY The June ' 25 Class of Charles E.

THE BOOSTER OFFICE Oh, how sad the Booster office will be on the last day of school ! All se- mester it has been living in close asso- ciation with seniors — has seen seniors trying to write something funny for the Booster, has seen seniors saunter- ing along the corridors — and on the last day it will see the seniors shed- ding tears because — oh, don ' t you know, they do not want to go away from Man- ual. When Gola Emery comes stroll- ing into the Booster office twenty years from now — the second richest man in the world ; when Margie Young comes — with some of her memories, of course — a famous writer who likes to remem- ber how she used to pound away on the Booster typewriter ; when Norbert Sack and all the old Boosterettes and their THE LOTUS EATERS All the world honors an adventure seeker. The man who sails boldly upon unknown seas, vanquishes pirates, dis- covers new lands, and wins fame and fortune dims the splendor of kingly crowns. A thousand years ago it was to no glory that a mariner cruised about the Mediterranean. The knight who captured and destroyed a few Cor- sairs was presented at court, rewarded with a few inches of ribbon and an es- tate, and forgotten. Today the sagas of the daring Vikings thrill us still. Columbus is still a hero, and the halo of Peary is yet undimmed. Life is an endless sea with its roar- ing billows, dashing spray, and rugged rocks filling the voyageur with zest. A small portion of its infinite surface has been charted. But so broad an expanse that it seems to equal the whole, lies uncut by mortal prows. Day after day, month after month, year after year, age after age, a million mariners in a mil- lion vessels embark upon this main. The craft that rove this luring, threat- ening sea are of divers forms and sizes — punts with their keelless hulls, frail canoes with their broad paddles, skiffs with their trusty oars, whale boats, staunch and sturdy, speedy motor boats, yachts with their swanlike grace, brigs with their square riggings, clippers with their narrow beam and massive sails, submarines with their crafty stealth, and even ocean liners with their monstrous hulls unshaken by the roll- ing waves. The world marvels to see the routes these mariners take. Light canoes skim out to sea in the wake of the flying clippers. Ocean liners swamp the shore hugging punts with their wash. Ahoy, seniors ! For four years you have prepared for this voyage. This last year, the old friends have feted you and made your parting the occa- sion of a great gala day. Your fare- well fete will end in a few days. Pre- pare to embark. And, bold mariners that you are, think not to return to port. Let lesser mortals hug the shores or traverse the charted seas ; but you cast your charts aside and head boldly toward the vast uncharted ocean. Sail on and on, find new empires and wear their crowns. Never again turn toward this shore. It is yours " To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. " SENIOR BOOSTER On the twelfth day of September, 1921, there entered into the halls of Manual a drove, I say drove because it is a well-known fact that these strange beings do travel in droves, of ignorant, awe-inspired, egotistic, unsuspecting freshmen. Little did these freshmen know of the countless obstacles and dangers they would encounter as they strove to climb the slippery path that leads to success. But little by little these personages learned the ways of their new environment ; learned that if they fell, they must rise again ; learned that they must fight their own battles, and that they must never quit. Some, tiring of the never-ending struggle for existence amid books and les- sons, fell by the wayside, letting slip from their fingers the golden opportunity for success. The others plugged on and on, at intervals lifting their brave racked heads from their piles of books, and, feebly inhaling the welcome ozone, plunged once more into their combat with the school driest subjects. On and on they went. Time passes ; it usually does, and still they strove onward. Temptations to quit and loaf were met and conquered. They then passed through the ranks of sophomoredom and juniorship till, at last, they gained sight of their long sought for goal. They emitted husky shouts of joy, and, tot- tering weakly on their travel worn " shanks, " cast themselves on their faces and drank deeply of the cool waters of seniordoria. This class of students then cast aside their attitude of underclassmen and assumed the role of dignified seniors. They were envied and looked up to as they strode through the halls. They, in turn, looked with glances of scorn and pity upon the humble freshmen who would engage themselves in such lowly occupa- tions as those of throwing paper wads or pinning notes on a classmate ' s back. If one of these important seniors would unfortunately stub his almighty toe on a step and fall sprawling upon the staircase, would he arise confusedly and blushing from his disgraceful posture and slink away amid the jeers of the under- classmen? On your life, he would not. He would slowly gather together his out- flung arms and legs, arise, and remark casually upon the undue strength of the gravity in the particular spot, and stalk majestically from the site. So is the life of a senior. This class of seniors realized that to advance and succeed as they were wont to do, the.v must choose a staff of capable leaders to direct their destiny. So accordingly on the fourteenth of October, 1924, they elected Alwin Iverson presi- dent and Edwin Ryan vice-president. It is said that two persons were painfully injured by flying buttons when two chests were unduly expanded. Thelma Tacoma was chosen secretary because of her uncanny ability to manipulate a pen and to solve the most complicated problems. Lillian Burnette was elected treasurer because it was thought that no one could survive her pleas for dues. The class on Wednesday, October 22, 1924, passed the motion that Ivy Day exercises be held as usual. They then proceeded to elect a historian and Harry Cederholm proved to be the victim of their choice. As all organizations have a color flag, it was fitting and proper that the June ' 25 class also have one. So on Wednesday, October 22, 1924, they chose the prettiest color in the rainbow, cerise. Since it is customary, the class must have arm bands. The worthy seniors took their pens in hand, pinned back their sleeves and set to work. At the meet- ing on Friday, November 7, 1924, they chose the arm band of Alton Jacobs as the best. (J SENIOR BOOSTER As there is dark, there must be light, and as there is work there must be play. Therefore, the seniors on the eleventh day of November, 1924, appointed Miss Moore to take charge of their Ivy Day exercises so that they might make the most of that day. Then came a horrible pestilence, the marks. It swept through our ranks with unchecked force, and the toll was heavy. Among our valiant number who fell before this pestilence was Edwin Ryan, our vice-president. Inflicted with the horrible disease, flunkitis, Mr. Ryan made the following oration at his last hour with us: " Fellow students, I know full well that you can not long endure your hard- ships without my guiding hand, but the end is inevitable. So I must leave you to struggle along as best you can, regardless of your fate. " The class then chose on Wednesday, November 19, 1925, Mr. Edwin Eichman to fill the vacant position. While Mr. Eichman had long been a thorn in the sides of Manual ' s worthy foes, Technical and Shortridge, and enjoyed many honors, yet on this occasion several stitches had to be taken in his cheeks because of the enormous grin when he learned of his new office. At the meeting on Wednesday, December 10, 1924, the seniors chose a class pin. It was evident that the masculine sex of our race was in the majority, for block numerals were chosen for the pin. The American Beauty Rose Bud was chosen for the class flower because of its resemblance to the cheeks of our fair skinned female seniors. So ends the first half of our senior year. Now only the cream of that fresh- man class that entered Manual some three and one-half, and in some cases four and one-half, years ago remain to enjoy the fruits of their long struggle. The class looks forward with great expectations for the coming semester as it looks as if it might be a record breaker. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1925 THE BEGINNING OF THE END r The class officers of last semester fulfilled their duties so efficiently that they were again chosen to lead the class. With such capable leaders, now seasoned by past experiences, the class should progress by leaps and bounds. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1925 On this day the class proceeded to elect a prophet and giftorian. Marvin Cochrane was elected giftorian because it was noticed that when he treated one player on another team roughly he then set about to treat the rest of them the same way. We believe that he will serve us in the same manner. William Lively was chosen prophet because of far seeing facilities of perception. Mr. Lively foresaw the coming of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse long before the clattering of their hoofbeats hove in sight. TUESDAY, MARCH 19, 1925 Our next move was to elect a will maker. Norbert Welch was chosen for this office. No folks, this is not the manufacturer of Welch beverages. TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 1925 The class chose a fine motto to live up to. It is " To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. " TUESDAY, MARCH 24, 1925 So that the underclassmen, and other personages as well, might gain visage of the best looking senior class that ever graced the interior of Manual, the class chose the National Studio to make reproductions of their fair countenances. TUESDAY, MARCH 26, 1925 The class held a special meeting to select a class banner. Many good banners were submitted, but the one of Margaret Martin was chosen as the best. APRIL 21, 1925 Our class play, A Kiss for Cinderella, was a brilliant success. Many said it was the best high school play they had ever seen. Thanks to Miss Perkins and her aids. APRIL 21, 1925 Every class takes great care in electing a Senior Booster editor in order that their Booster be all that is expected. The June ' 25 class chose a very promising young journalist, Gola Emery, to edit the best paper of the year. He has a very valuable assistant, Marguerite Young, and Bernice Kirch as managing editor. (Continued on Page 12) SENIOR BOOSTER As I look into the magic crystal, the crystal to which time is no mystery, I see the words " June 1925. " Slowly they fade, and in their place come " June 1935. " Now I see a maze of people and changing scenes. I see an office and on the doors the lettering, Vice-President Kroger Grocery and Baking Company. Can it be possible that after ten long years of weighing potatoes Glenn Boyd has risen to this position? The scene changes, and there appears in the crystal an army parade ground. A company of soldiers is drilling, and I see an old classmate in the person of a great officer, Corporal Bailey. Again the scene changes, and I see a foreign country. The secretary of treas- ury of this country is no other than the able treasurer of our class, Lillian Burnette. The crystal grows black — there are many ladies excitedly talking. Now I see they are Leona Rahn, Helen Vennard, Edna Werner. Helen Ridout, Alma Herndon, Helen Kingham, and Eileen Troy. They are carrying America ' s colors as the women debaters at the Olympic games in London. Now I see a large department store. There is a sign in front of it saying Cohen, Cohen, and Cohen, Haberdashers ! I wonder if they couldn ' t be Cecil, Louis, and Myer, of our class. I see their sales force in charge of the sales man- ager, Scott Huber. The force is composed of Lena Rogin, Saydie Lehner, Frieda Naperstick, Sam Rabinowitz, Sam Blum, and Sidney Gernstein. I see a large milk company, also several dozen broken bottles. There is a lady who looks very much like Ella May McMillan standing beside them. But it couldn ' t be Ella May who broke them because she never broke even a test tube in the chemistry lab. The crystal tells me that a large bottling factory has been started, manu- facturing pop and other beverages. The president and vice-president seem to be Joe Burnstein and Herbert Lieness. respectively. What ' s this? — a nurse at St. Vincent ' s Hospital has run off with an English soldier. I can ' t tell who they are. but I would guess that the nurse is Virginia Keith and the soldier, Lee Nicholson. I see the Buckingham Palace, and Irvin Putt and Leo Selig. the lords in the class play, are now in London trying to claim their lordship. There is great rejoicing in Manual. Thelma Tacoma has taken a position as permanent secretary of classes, clubs, and organizations in the school. Again I see a newspaper, and the headlines are America Wins 1935 Olympic Games. America ' s success was due chiefly to the great relay team composed of Paul Volrath, Verlin Littlejohn, Edwin Ryan, and Paul Rudbeck. Now I see Chicago and a group of missionaries. They are Dorothy Mast, Helen Rilling, and Dorothy Roberts. I see the divorce court — King Lawrence Condrey and Queen Ruth Robinson are not married : they got a divorce as soon as their son, Prince Eugene Coffin, said. " I do. I do, I do, " to Cleora Robertson. Gola Emery, the electrician, has a great invention. It will do away with the automobile. Just touch the button, and you are there. There appears in the crystal the Manual lunch room. I see Cora Ballard, Luima Bransford. Alma Stewart. Dorothy Williamson, Lillian White. Stella Quishenbury, and Lillie Williams as famous cooks. Ah! The Polo Grounds. The Giants and White Sox are playing in the world series. It is the eighth inning : the Giants are at bat ; a young man is going to the plate. He hits the first ball into the bleachers, and as he crosses the plate I see that it is Avon Foster. The scene changes, and there appear some of (Continued on Page 8) SENIOR BOOSTER (Continued from Page 7) the spectators watching the game. Commissioner of baseball is none other than our most efficient president, Al Iverson. With him are the president of the National League, Lloyd Harter, and the president of the American League, Nor- bert Welch. The crystal grows darker, but on the bleachers I see some of my old classmates : Esther Heirman, Roy Coller, Lucille Hostetler, Leo Burres, Mary Herold. I see two young men selling peanuts and Coca Cola. They are John Lahm and Lewis Davis. The scene changes. I see New York ' s Great White Way and in glaring lights, Successor to Will Rogers, Famous Comedian, Harry Ropers! Can it be possible that this is the Harry Rogers of our class? On the small bill is another announcement of one of our classmates, Felix Mastropaolo. Felix was Manual ' s best joker. Also I see Captain Stanton, who is in charge of the ushers, Margaret Martin, Fern Lyster, Madeline Micheli, and Mary Russell. The crystal shows me another great playhouse, and in the diamond lights I see Bessie Sellers leading the Ziegfeld Follies. With her is the famous com- pany composed of Mary Hester Smith, Helen Stickle, Mary Campbell, Dolores Friedman, Ruth Leech, Bernice Kirch, Margaret Gerdts, and Dorothy Bolin. Now the act is over: I see a hard boiled stage manager, who seems to be in a great argument with his assistants over who shall open the door of the star ' s automobile. It is dark; I can not tell who they are, but I would guess than the manager is Walter Dolk, and his assistants might be Lawrence Dunn and Fred Gregg. Again the scene changes ; there is an auto accident. It seems that a great race driver, Daredevil Joe Trost, has run into a truck driven by Fritz Schnepf. While everybody is looking for the police, the crystal shows me two policemen playing dominoes in a nearby loafing place. They must be the Mutt and Jeff of the force because they are Leonard Nolte and George Lupear. The crystal turns back to the collision ; a cub reporter is rushing to the scene ; a great light shows Alton Jacobs. The large buildings and towers of a great university appear and among them is a huge stadium. On the sidelines the head coach is consulting his assistant. This coach is Marvin Cochrane and his assistants are coach of basketball, Ed. Eichman ; of baseball, Paul Becker ; of track, Harry Cederholm. The crystal shows me many professors : Ed. Spencer, Leona Milburn, Gracie Robb, Georgia Scheiring, Ida Watkins, and Eugene Williams. Looking out of the windows of this great university are Elosia Akers, Norma Dragoo, Althea Sullivan, Mar- guerite Young, Viola Kemper, Lois Entwistle, and Constance Graf. I suppose they are students at this school. Again the scene changes; I see a foreign country. People are rejoicing and among the mob are some very familiar faces : Frieda Kennedy, Abe Simon, Cora Allison, Dorothy Lewis, Harry Miller, William Markle, and Marie Dinsmore. They are shouting, " The President, the President! " " Long live the President! " The President appears. Wh is he? Why, he is my old friend and assistant, Isa- dore Lovinger. He has been elected President of the Irish Free State. Now I see the congress of this state, and among the representatives are Edith Brown, leader of party opposed to the new government, and those in favor of it have as their leader Dorothy Kritsch. The speaker of this house, a very tall, quite man, is Anthony Giuffre. As pages of this congress I see Lawrence Caplyi, Joe Mazza, George Weir, and Delmar Wright. In the distance there appears a little church. The pastor of this church, Raymond Genus, is making an announcement. He is saying that Robert Kelly, Milton Jenkins, Owen Gowdy, Alexander Clarke, Andrew Ramsey, Bert Walker, and Myron Wright, Dixie ' s Discorders, will give a band concert in the basement of the church next Tuesday night. He is also saying that a famous quartet, Frances Grigsby, Alice Cravens, Jerrie Cole, and Mary Bailey, will sing.

(Continued on Page 12) 12 SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS HISTORY (Continued from Page 6) The Ivy Day program, under the supervision of Miss Moore, was also a suc- cess. The performance was very impressing and was topped off by a splendid party. The class looks forward eagerly to Class Day. The term is swiftly drawing to an end, and the seniors are finishing up their remaining school duties with light hearts. This senior class will soon have completed another step in their journey through life. Success is not yet assured. There are many more trials and barriers to be met with, but these should be conquered as have all others. This class has proved to be all that could be expected of a senior class, and we feel sure that no class will falter if they work as the June, 1925, class has worked. It is with a certain regret in our hearts that we leave a place where we have so long strove to do all that was expected of us. We hope that all other classes profit by our experiences. So ends the history of the June, 1925, class. Harry Cederholm. PROPHECY (Continued from Page 8) Now there is a restaurant and in large letters the names of Sack and Taylor. I wonder if they couldn ' t be our old classmates, Norbert and Ralph? At a distant table by himself and in deep study is Ernst Schuster. I presume he is the man- ager. There is one table reserved. It is decorated in Red and White. What is this coming into the restaurant? Oh! It is a party of girls. They sit down at this table. Now I notice there is a huge cake on the table bearing the letters, E. M. T. H. S. 1925. Why sure it ' s the tenth anniversary of our class, and these fair young ladies are Lucille Whiteford, Ida Helen Smith, Flossie Heschelman, Loraine Driscoll, Florence Huebner, Virginia Kehrein, and Alta Rettig.

' ■■ ■ ' ■■ ■ ' --■•• ' Queen of Manual and all three city high schools ! Bessie Sellers, another of our June ' 25 ' s attained fame and prominence. She was chosen by the student body of the Emmerich Manual Training High School to be the May Queen. Then to top it off, the Girls ' Reserve Club, composed of girls from all the schools, selected our Bessie to be the city queen. Congratulations ! A KISS FOR CINDERELLA With what excitement, with what thrills and hopes, we awaited A Kiss for Cinderella! From the very begin- ning everything had been too exciting to allow any member of the class to yawn and say, " Class play? I suppose so. " In the first place Miss Perkins and the committee, of which Marguerite Young was chairman and Gracie Robb, Alethea Sullivan, Eugene Coffin, and Alton Jacobs the members, could not decide immediately what play should be presented. Finally — glory be ! — A Kiss for Cinderella was chosen. Cleora Rob- ertson was selected to play the part of little, dreamy, wistful Cinderella and Eugene Coffin to play the part of the handsome policeman-prince. The play is written with all the graceful, sym- pathetic art of the great British author, Sir James M. Barrie. It concerns a young girl whose life is filled with glory and romance because of her dreams. Every day as she goes about the sordid tasks by which she makes her living, she dreams of going to the king ' s ball and of dancing with the Prince of Wales. The play ends with the realiza- tion of Cinderella ' s dreams — but the realization comes in an unexpected manner. The prince becomes the police- man again, and he, understanding Cin- derella ' s pure girlhood and her great imagination, gives her two tiny silver slippers instead of an engagement ring. Critics from all over the city com- plimented this excellent production, one even saying that it was the best exam- ple of a high school production that she had ever seen. No wonder ! How could it have been anything else with Miss Perkins and Miss Sanders coaching it and the old Manual spirit backing it to the limit? The cast included Fritz Schnepf, An- thony Giuffre, Flossie Heshelman, Do- lores Friedman, Felix Mastropaolo, Gracie Robb, Helen Ridout, Thelma Ta- coma, Bernice Kirch, Edna Werner, Ida Watkins, Margaret Martin, Dorothy Roberts, Mary Hester Smith, Dorothy Mast, Marguerite Baker, Harold Jor- dan, Charles Dant, Irvin Putt, Leo Selig, Harry K. Miller, Lawrence Con- drey, Ruth Robinson, Lena Rogin, Leona Rahn, Sadie Lehner, Helen Stickle, Dorothy Kritsch, Helen King- ham, Lucille Whiteford, Helen Rilling, Frieda Kennedy, Fern Lyster, Marga- ret Gerdtz, Mary Russell, Lawrence Caplin, Ruth Leech, Sam Rabinowitz, Ella Mae McMillan, Lee Nicholson, and Virginia Keith. The class extends its sincere appre- ciation to all those others who in any way helped to make A Kiss for Cin- derella a success. TO STRIVE, TO SEEK, TO FIND, AND NOT TO YIELD If you will strive and seek, you will find. You may strive and seek, but if you yield, you will not find. Without the determination not to yield, you will find nothing. What is the good of either striving or seeking if you yield and do not continue to strive and seek? Many an athletic contest has been lost because the players cease to strive and seek their goal. If they had the deter- mination not to yield, they would fight to the end whether they were winning or losing. So it is with the battle of life ; if we yield in our striving and seeking, we will not find. 14 SENIOR BOOSTER Senior Athletes ALWIN IVERSON. Our class president distinguished himself on the 1922 football eleven, playing a guard position and helping to win the city series that year for Manual. A pesky rule of the I. H. S. A. A., which sets an age limit, put a stop, however, to Al ' s athletic career for the Red and White, but he has certainly made a name for himself since then as one of the staunchest boosters and helpers the school has ever had. Al possesses one of the only two block M ' s owned by men now in school. A little lad by the name of Hutton has the other. EDWIN (Ham) EICKMANN. Through his graduation, the school loses one of the foremost all-round athletes it has ever had, and we are surely proud to count him as a member of our class. Eddie has the remarkable record of making a position in any sport he has gone out for. Just last fall, as left tackle, " Ham " was a bulwark on the football team, though playing the autumn sport for the first time. The opposition certainly knew they were hitting something when they stacked up against Ed ' s solid bulk. We only wish he had started playing foot- ball sooner, but, at that, he quite made up for his staying away by his stellar play last season. " Ham " was elected captain of the basketball squad for the ' 24- ' 25 season and took our big Red five to the sectional finals, earning for himself a ranking among the best back guards of the state. Ed was a regular on the net squad for three years. His baseball ability also earned Ed the captaincy of this team for the current season. He played third base last year, but Coach Skinner developed him this season into one of the finest catchers that Manual ever had. We are betting on Ed to captain his mates to a city championship before the season is over. The gap left by the graduation of this versatile ath- lete will be hard to plug up. (He ' s a real speechmaker, too ; ask Miss Perkins.) HARRY CEDERHOLM. Basketball and tennis are Harry ' s sport specialties. Two years ago he started on the second team in basketball and was a whiz as a forward on last season ' s varsity five. His racquet ability has also been a big help to the tennis team for the last two seasons. Another fine athlete Manual will sorely miss. MARVIN COCHRANE. Marv is the boy who made Shortridge think that " Red " Grange had been substituted in the Manual lineup last fall when he turned the football game with the northsiders into a track meet. Result : 59 to 0. Marv played halfback, but the year before he played left end, though greatly handi- capped at that time by injuries. Then, in 1923, he was a member of Coach Morrison ' s state championship track team, excelling in the high and broad jumps and running on the relay team. He has been an outstanding track star since that time, always good for his share of points. He is a splendid athlete who will be hard to replace. AVON FOSTER. This boy shines in baseball and has played second base like an Eddie Collins this season, being a big factor in his team ' s success. Avon also flashed on the basketball second team last season, playing floor guard and for- wards. He must say good-by to Manual in June also. FRED GREGG, alias " Bud, " " Newt, " and others equally distinguishing. Al- though he has not taken part in athletics this year, Fred was once a reliable track man and has tried his hand at football. JOHN LAMB. " Jawn " has made left guard practically impenetrable for the last two years on the fighting Red eleven, and has showed real ability. Other high school teams of the state, who are on Manual ' s schedule for next fall, will probably be glad to hear of his graduation. VERLIN (Bolsh) LITTLE JOHN. How he got the nickname, we do not know, but it is short for bolshevik. We do know that he is a crack athlete, however, as he held up a tackle position on the football squad for three seasons, played fine basketball with the second team, and is a flying fool when it comes to hurdle events in track meets. Another sigh of relief from honored opponents, but one of sadness from Alma Mater. (Continued on Page 33) SENIOK BOOSTER 15 10 SENIOR BOOSTER • i SENIOR BOOSTER 17 Personals 1.

MA SOMA CLUB The Masoma Club is the girls ' honor club of Manual and is composed of approximately sixty of the finest and most reliable girls in the school. Its purpose, to promote good things and to serve Manual, is not only written in the constitution but is carried out to the fullest extent. The officers for this semester are : President, Thelma Tacoma ; vice-president, Miriam Wit ; secretary- treasurer, Gertrude Helmuth. BOYS ' GLEE CLUB The Boys ' Glee Club of Manual is a very young organization. Although it has been in exist- ence only a short time, it has accomplished great things, for which the boys deserve much credit. Partly through its efforts, Manual has been placed high in music in the state high schools. Dur- ing National Music Week the boys, under the direction of Mr. Winslow, were rated second among the boys ' glee clubs of the state. GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB Manual ' s sweet songsters are just blossoming out. The Girls ' Glee Club, under the direction of Mrs. Maxwell, is a comparatively young organization. The girls made a good showing in their red and white costumes in the State Music Contest. The school is surely proud of this club. ORCHESTRA During the last year our orchestra has made great progress. From a beginning organiza- tion of about thirty pieces, it has grown to forty-five. During National Music Week it was ranked as the fourth best in the state. Our orchestra furnished the music for many auditorium programs and for the midyear exhibit of the American Gymnastic College. BAND Thanks to Mr. Winslow and our Manual Band. They are always willing to pose for a pic- ture if it is to be taken with their red and white on. They should receive much praise for the splendid showing they have made this year and that which they are going to make next fall at the football games. GIRL RESERVE CLUB The Manual Girl Reserve Club is one of the most active in the city. It is verv beneficial to the school in that it teaches many girls, under the supervision of the Y. W. C. A., to live up- rights . The officers of the club for this vear are: President, Ella May McMillan; vice-president, Olga Bonke, secretary, Margaret Black; treasurer, Thelma Tacoma . THE HI-Y CLUB The Hi-Y Club emphasizes clean speech, clean athletics, clean scholarship and clean living. Its work is truly valuable to boys who want to live rightly and help others to do so too. R. O. T. C. OFFICERS The R. O. T. C. Cadet Officers at Manual are a fine looking group when they are all " dolled up " with their new belts. They are in charge of Sgt. Schull, U. S. A., and Sgt. McComas, U. S. A. They made an excellent showing at the regular inspection THE ODD NUMBER The Odd Number is a short story club with rigid requirements for membership. Its mem- bers read and write short stories and are enthusiastically and capably sponsored by Mr. Moffat. There are no loafers in the club, each one entering into all its activities and each one writing short stories that come up to the club ' s standards. ORATORICAL CLUB The Oratorical Club was organized as a result of the first National Oratorical Contest on the Constitution of the United States. The work of this club is of great value in that it is real training for intelligent discussion and thoughtful, patriotic citizenship. JUNIOR RED CROSS The Junior Red Cross Club, sponsored by Miss Coral Taflinger, which has done some fine work during the past semester, stands for the same humanitarian ideals for which the world organization of the Red Cross is famous. This is a fine group of students with a very real and worthy aim. JUNIOR DRAMA LEAGUE The Junior Drama League of our school is a branch of the National Drama League. It creates in its members an appreciation for good poetry, plays, and stories. The Drama League has presented many good programs in our auditorium. The officers for this semester are: President, Emma Lichtsinn ; vice-president. Hazel Gooch : secretary-treasurer, Ella May McMillan. H. Y. S. CLUB The H. Y. S. Club, sponsored by Miss Tipton, has proved itself one of the worth while clubs of the school. It is well organized, and each member takes a great interest in the activities of the club. The club has as its aim the backing of worth-while projects of the school. BUSINESS GIRLS ' CLUB Business Girls ' Club is a wide awake organization meeting every two weeks for the pur- poses of fostering the best interest of the girls in the commercial department and helping them to prepare effectively for the business woman ' s life. R. O. T. C. The battalion review held on Wednes- day, May 13, was a great success, due to the time spent by Sgt. Shull and Sgt. McComas in preparing for the review. Major O ' Brien highly commended the cadets for their appearance. Major O ' Brien said the Manual unit was one of the best units that he had inspected.

SENIOR BOOSTER 33 PAUL BECKER. He comes from a baseball family and is no exception to the blood. You will remember him as the lanky, sure fly chaser of the outer gardens on the school baseball nine two years ago. WILLIAM LIVELY. " Bill, " the most elongated member of our class, is the persistent kind of athlete that the school needs more of. He has done well in three sports, playing first base and pitch on the Red nine, center last year on the football eleven, and starring on the second team in basketball two years ago. Always reliable, Bill will be missed in the future. IS ADORE LOVINGER. Another all-round sport and hard working athlete is " Izzy. " Through his steady efforts he won a place on this year ' s track team and has showed up well in the distance events. He is made up entirely of stick- to-itiveness, and this has won him a place in the hearts of his team mates. PAUL RUDBECK. Distance events in track are what Paul does. He has been a standby on the squad for three years and has always been good for some points. A four weeks ' illness kept him from making this season his record year. Manual officials are trying to get Nurmi to come and take Paul ' s place. EDWIN RYAN. Small but fast describes this boy perfectly. A speedy man in the dashes and relay ; Ed also is good for points in the broad jump. His speed also won him a halfback position on the football team last season, and many were the long runs he tore off. PAUL VOLRATH. Next on the list of our class athletes comes Paul, the flying left end of last season ' s eleven. On the track squad he starred for two years in the quarter mile and broad jump events. Somehow, Paul also had an uncanny faculty for making fine grades in his school work along with his partici- pation in athletics. He is one of our finest representatives in the school sport world. JOSEPH TROST. Joe has been another hard working fellow, cinching a guard position on the football team for the last two years as his reward. He also starred on the second team in basketball last season as floor guard, and many are the times he has brought the bleachers to their feet by long shots from far out on the hardwood. This aggregation of fifteen Manual star athletes is the largest of any senior class for a long time, and their graduation may seem to put a damper on the future athletic prospects of the Red and White, but we, who have experienced four years with the methods of the school, feel assured that the continuation of the co-operation of the students with the coaches will produce teams as good as those of the glorious past. SOME OF THE GIRL ATHLETES OF JUNE ' 25 MARGARET (Marg) GERDTS has played basketball and volleyball. She was very active during her freshman and sophomore years and played center and floor guard. Since then Margaret has not participated in athletics, but she will always be remembered for her assistance to the team. VIRGINIA (Skinnay) KEITH, another one of our stars, has played on the girls ' varsity basketball team for two years. She will be remembered as the girl who played guard and off-center during the year the girls won the city champion- ship. Yea-Rah-Skinny. LENA (Lee) ROGIN is one of the stars of the girls ' varsity team. She has always been on the alert and has put forth every effort to help her team. She played as forward during her freshman year and was shifted to the varsity as a guard while a sophomore. Since then she has played on the team and will be remembered as the slim girl who also played with the team the year the girls won the city championship. The team surely will miss her when it lines up in the fall. DOLORES (Shorty) FRIEDMAN, a shappy little side-center who played dur- ing her freshman year. She is " small but mighty. " MARGARET MARTIN liked to play basketball and volleyball. She is a snappy little fighter and is always on the job. CONTEST FOR FRENZEL MEDALS IN PHYSICAL TRAINING, TUESDAY, MAY 19, 1925 This contest is in the nature of an all-round physical proficiency test of ten events scored on a point basis. The scale of points varies for boys of various ages, height, and weight, thus giving all boys an even chance regardless of age or size. The winners : First Gold Medal) Elmer Foster 901 points Second (Silver Medal) Jonas Lyles 899 points Third (Bronze Medal) George Meek 857 points 34 SENIOR BOOSTER Track Squad The track squad was a great success this year. The team was a well bal- anced team, being strong in both track and field events. It handled all its dual meets in great style, winning each meet by a big margin. The team first tried itself out on Brazil and emerged in victory, defeating Brazil by a score of 58 to 41. After a week of ironing out the rough spots, Coach Morrison took his thinly clads to Connersville. They trounced Connersville, 77 to 20. The team then continued its streak of winning by defeating Carmel and Greenwood, Manual scoring 62, Carmel 34, and Greenwood 21 ; Elwood by a score of 58% to 40% ; Martinsville and Shortridge by a score of 57%, Martins- bille 26V 2 and S. H. S. 15%, and Mar- tinsville and Richmond by a score of 49, Martinsville High School 27 and Richmond 23. The team then went to Kokomo for the Kokomo relays and meet. Although the relay teams — the half-mile, mile and medley — did not place in any event, Hutton and Coch- rane scored several points. The team then started two weeks of polishing up, in order to be ready for the sectional. Twenty-two men were entered in the sectional. These men entered the sectional with the Manual spirit in their hearts. They fought their hardest and fought to the end, but could not come through with another victory. They took second place, being snuffed out of first by Technical, who won by scoring 42 points. Manual scored 32%. Out of the twenty-two en- tries only four qualified to enter the state meet a week later. These four men were : Leon Hutton, Manual star and captain, qualified in the low hur- dles, high jump, shot put and high hur- dles. He beat out Clift in the low hurdles and bettered, unofficially, the state record. Al Rubush, Hutton ' s co- worker and captain-elect, qualified in the pole vault and high jump. Fred Martin qualified in the pole vault by tying for first with Rubush. Herbert Burnett, our freshman star and in his first year of track, qualified to enter the state by winning the quarter-mile dash. A week later we saw our men enter the state meet with the intention of bringing home a state championship. Somewhere in the machinery a cog slipped and Manual placed only fourth. Hutton, our star point getter and per- former, placed first in the low hurdles and broke the state record by 3 10 of a second. He also tied for second place in the high jump. Al Rubush, our other star performer, tied for fourth place in the pole vault. The team in its course of dual meets scored 362 points to its opponents 250 points. The men who scored these points and played a part in winning the dual meets were : Hutton Blumell Rubush Grimes Martin Marshall Susemichael Cochrane Williamson Brandt Burnett Little John Rudbeck Peek Heiny Bo swell Shaw Craig Volrath Freers Burris Sweeney Robinson Durrette Graduation will reduce the strength of the team quite a bit. Hutton, Lit- tlejohn, Rudbeck, Cochrane and Vol- rath, all dependable point getters, grad- uate with the June class. These men leave, but do not leave a vacancy, be- cause each man ' s place will be filled as soon as he leaves. Hutton ' s place as captain will be filled by Rubush. His place will be hard to fill because he was such an all around athlete and starred in each event. We all feel that the track squad should be commended on its splendid demonstration. Altogether now fellows : GOOD WORK, TEAM. Freshman Baseball Just as full of fight as any of them, the future material for the varsity, the freshman ball team, coached by Bur- rell E. Evans, raced through their short season, scoring thirty-four runs to their opponents ' twenty-one. The frosh played four games, two against the Indiana School for the Deaf, winning both, 10-5 and 3-2, and two against the varsity reserves, winning one 18-7 and drop- ping the other, 7-3. This makes a total of three games won and one lost. The individual stars of the team were Whit- taker, Reed, Storm, Gernstein, Foster, and Aue. Others on the team were Campbell, McCann, Maupin, Klinge, Bettge. Baker, Hankemeier, Watkins, and Lindsey.

McComb, Miss Hench, Mr. Holloway, Miss Haynes The Senior PRESENT— PAST What ' s the matter with the senior of today? A lot, some may say, but others think he is just as good today as he ever will be. What his faults or good points are depends on opinion, that ' s all. You, for instance, may think the senior of today is small as compared to the senior of former years. Yes, but someone else fires back and says that physical make-up hasn ' t everything to do with the senior. That is, we have just as intelligent and diplomatic a senior today as ever before. But again, We are now putting on the finishing touches of getting ready for a long job of working at something. No matter what it is — college or the business world — personality counts. The indi- vidual who can single himself out and make himself distinct is the follow who gets the chances. It is easier for the boss to remember a distinct person- ality. That ' s just why a lot of boys and girls end up as unsuccessful men and women who make a living doing odd jobs or just " piddling " along. They didn ' t start with a point to steer for, nor a compass to help them make a bee- line for it. They had no personalities. They were left in the net because the boss thought a whole lot more of John Smith, who was always waiting to do extra duty to help, while they were in- tent upon drawing their salary. And John Smith is today at the head of his own business. You can never " get any place " unless you know to what place you want to go ; and it ' s mighty hard to get to it then, if you don ' t know in what direction it lies from you. So, make up your mind where you want to go, use your personality, and as a com- pass, " LIVE NOT TO THYSELF ALONE. " Do not live for yourself — think of others — incorporate it in your charac- ter and for goodness sake, use your per- sonality. another one of you pops up and remarks that the senior of today is not as loyal and enthusiastic as the senior of yes- terday. Tommyrot ! Are the bleachers ever empty at an inter-city football or basketball game? Did the BOOSTER evere fail to come out because of a shortage of subscriptions? Did a class play project ever frizzle and fail to go off with a boom ? Did anything whatso- ever fall flat because it did not have the backing of the senior ? No ! So you lose there, too. Well then, where is there any truth in the statement that the senior of today is inferior to the senior of past time? There is none. The senior of today has been brought up under a slightly different environ- ment from that of the former senior, but that does not matter. The end has been the same. The senior of today is just as " big, " just as loyal, and just as enthusiastic as the senior that came before him. SENIOR BOOSTER Several years ago (we hope not more than four) the January ' 25 Class proceeded individually and collectively to " fall " into the old auditorium to the tune of On Manual. On this occasion the Red and White were greatly in evidence wherever the green was not. The solemnity and tearfulness of this day upon which we, the members of the afore-named class, were ushered into Manual ' s halls of fame and romance (?) have never met their equal throughout our high school days. We lost that first awe after we found our respective rooms. With all the dreadful preliminaries over, we entered our sophomore year greatly relieved that we did not now need to live down the name of freshman. As juniors, we were unusually industrious (so we think), and quite ably showed the rest of the school that we would soon be capable of assum- ing the commanding position of " Seniordom. " Although we weren ' t selfish (no member of our class can be without committing a serious crime), we were mighty glad to claim the " Bill of Tights " (an imaginary document which is very precious to seniors — a gen- tleman ' s agreement, as it were). To start our memorable senior career, we had a " get acquainted " meeting at which we tried to get as many different people to sign a paper which was given us, as possible. However, some of the boys became so excited (presumably over finally being seniors), that they made all but Leon Hutton lose. Leon, being wise, had all girl ' s signatures. A week or so later, we January ' 2 5s ventured so far as to elect officers, and after careful thought regarding voice (our class meetings demanded volume and good use of the diaphragm), height (commanding position, you know), and last but not least, resourcefulness (remember the " get acquainted " meeting, we chose Leon Hutton as our president. The other officers elected were Florence Talkington, vice-president; Charlotte Canaday, secretary; Henry Brandt, treasurer, and Olga Bonke, historian. Wishing our color to portray our mental attitude, as well as ability (hm), we decided upon gold as the class color. Our next great decision was our armband. Our choice was designed by Myla Herrmann. Myla ' s artistic ability and reliability were appreciated by the class. The standard senior class pin was accepted for our class pin. The second term as seniors began with the election of officers. The results were Leon Hutton, president; Florence Foster, vice-president; Char- lotte Canaday, secretary, and Henry Brandt, treasurer. Things began to happen in rapid succession. We chose the National Studio to be our photographer. We decided it pays to have relatives of class members in different businesses. Ruth Porter was the one who was of use when we chose our photographer. " Live not to thyself alone " became the motto of the January ' 2 5 Class. Ermal Gillum designed the class banner. Violet Jacobsen ' s poem was declared the best, and Ruth Ormsby ' s song was chosen. We discovered that we had forgotten to choose a class flower. How- ever, since we are January seniors instead of June seniors, we refused to take much blame for our neglect. We had no gardens to remind us. The Aaron Ward Rose became our flower, and we like it no less because we almost forgot it.

The Ivy Day program was a " singing " success. Thanks to Mr. Hol- loway and Miss Ewing are due. To Thelma Armfield we gave the privilege of gazing into the crystal for us. Jacob Axelrod always seemed generous, so we agreed to let him give ' all the " White Elephants, " or anything else away after Christmas. Our will, it was decided, should be drawn up by Henry Brandt. Merry Christmas vacation gave us time to get our breath between our trip and the Senior BOOSTER. We think our editor, William Sponsel, deserved it. Class Day! SENIOR BOOSTER 15 OUR PRINCIPAL In June, 1910, when Arsenal Technical School grew so that it needed a full-time principal, Mr. Stuart, who was acting as principal of both Manual and Technical, was transferred to Technical and Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb was chosen principal of Manual, and he was a good choice, too. Mr. McComb has been a member of the faculty for twenty-four years, sixteen of which were as teacher and head of the English depart- ment and eight years as the principal of Manual. OUR SPONSOR Miss Arda Knox, the senior sponsor, has always taken interest in the progress of each class for twelve years. Miss Knox is also sponsor of the Roines Club, and always has taken a keen interest in both girls and boys. She lias been a member of the faculty for seventeen years as a mathematics teacher, entering in September, 1907. IP) SENIOR BOOSTER Imagine me, on Friday, the thirteenth, 1928, starting on my homeward journey from Greenville, Montana, where my desire had been fulfilled — the desire of visiting the little city of our class play. Up to the time I had com- fortably settled in the train, nothing disastrous had happened. Thank heav- ens! Immediately I began to read a magazine I had purchased, without taking further notice of my fellow passengers. Suddenly my attention was attracted by the conversation between two gentlemen who sat directly be- hind me. The first said, " Have you ever thought of getting married? " " Yep, " answered the second, " that ' s why I ' m a bachelor. " As I walked to the dressing room I observed the speakers more closely. Imagine my surprise when I recognized the first speaker as Glen Turner, and the other as Arthur Hendricks. After a little chat, I went on. During my stay, the train stopped at a junction and took on more pas- sengers. On returning to my former seat, I noticed that the coach had be- come rather crowded. The seats in front of me were occupied by. two very distinguished gentlemen opposite whom sat a very sweet and demure lady. The taller man was busily engaged in talking to the other man, seemingly about married life. " Well, " he said, " far be it from me to advise you, but as for me, I wouldn ' t take a million for the missus as she stands, but I ' d not give a nickel for another. " I looked across to see the effect his words would have on the lady, and whom should I recognize but Dorothy Stewart. Thereupon I changed my seat and sat beside her. Surprises followed, for she then introduced me to her distinguished looking husband, Mr. Leon Hutton. His companion was Verl Muncie, who informed me that he was to be married to Eleanor Geis upon his return. Leon said that he and Dorothy had married directly after graduation and for several years had taken up their residence in the Spink-Arms, but don ' t get excited, as jaintor and janitress. He said they had always planned to continue their journey to Montana, and so they were just returning. Leon also told me that Evelyn Nordloh had succeeded " Ma " Ferguson as governor of Texas. I also learned that Verl Whetsiine and Ermal Gillum by their Apache dancing had created a sensation in Paris. It was then dinner time, and we went to the dining car where we were sur- prised to find Ruben Cohen and Simon Marmalad as waiters. Opposite our table I noticed a rather aged man, whom I suddenly recognized to be James Crossen. After dinner I crossed the aisle to his table, and we exchanged greetings. I learned that he was a doctor. He said that the world had been very cruel to him, he having proposed to three young ladies of our class, had been spurned by all. Seeing that I was interested he said the three concerned were Evelyn Cotton, Francis Bauer and Marie Borgman. When I began to sympathize, he stopped me and said, " ' Tis better to have loved and lost than to be dug up later and dissected. " I asked if he had heard any news of our other classmates. Jimmy replied that Carlos Ames was a floorwalker at L. S. Ayres and Company and that Carl Ernsting was a stum speaker for the Socialist Party. After dining, I returned to my own coach and began to read again. In the paper I read that George Schaefer, who had always wanted to become an aviator, had now become president of the Bell Hop Club of Indianapolis. In the society column I found that Mary Hastings, who had married a Para- mount star, Harry Brandt, was now suing for divorce. SENIOR BOOSTER 17 PROPHECY— Cont ' d. At last I arrived in Indianapolis. Bidding all my friends goodby, I hurried off the train. On getting off, my bags were taken into the station by the rushing bell hop who was no other than the fleet-footed athlete of former days in high school, Fred Harrison. " Train to Chicago " — " Well, if that doesn ' t sound like the voice of Gabe Frand I ' m not alive. " On going closer I was pleased to see that Gabe was holding such a pleasant job, train-calling. On stepping into a waiting taxi- cab, I saw Arthur Sturm as my chauffeur. He then whizzed me to the Clay- pool. Upon my arrival my bags were grabbed and taken to the desk by Nathaniel Lensey, the doorman. At the desk was Douglas Cleary, who was manager of the hotel. I was ushered to my suite by Raymond Griffin, the head bell-hop. As it was early in the afternoon, I decided to visit Keith ' s. I was amazed to see in the sketch called " Nine O ' clock Revue, " ' Marie Fehr, Florence Foster, Lois Bowsher, Ruth Pottage, and Dorothy Rosebrock as the dancing girls, and Carl McAllister, as the singer and manager. I was also entertained by Wendell McWilliams and Edward Unger, who were called the " Devilish Duo. " They sang about their cross-eyed wives in a song en- titled, " I love my wife, but oh you kid! " After these acts I went to the stage door and visited Lois Bowsher. She confessed that she had married William Sponsel, but left him forty-eight hours later. Her quick leave taking was due to the fact that on their honey- moon William had taken a keen interest in books, and she didn ' t want to become the wife of a bookworm. That evening I retired early, but before going to my room I lingered awhile and talked to Douglas. He informed me that Frank Haupt and Harry Marcus were slinging hash at Thompson ' s restaurant. In his own employ was Frank Schmedel, the chef. The waiters were Elmer Carr, Donald Miller, Buell Young, and Robert Lantry. I was thankful that all my classmates were enjoying life in their ideal occupations. Early next morning I went for a walk around the city. Very few people were on the streets. Coming down Washington street were two familiar figures dressed in street-cleaning outfits. These I recognized as George Lu- pear and Ralph Tacoma. At Meridian and Washington was a handsome po- liceman, Carl Specker. He said he had been in nearly every section of the city as traffic policeman, but because of his big feet he had to be changed to a corner where no street cars turned. While gazing into some windows, I saw Robert Stoeffler holding down the unique job of barber. While coming back, I stepped into Thompson ' s to say " hello " to my friends. While wait- ing, a man ordered a Coney Island sandwich and sauerkraut. Frank Haupt transmitted the order to the cooks thus: " Coney Island Airdale on a load of hay! " Immediately I told Frank of his error, but he said he would have to teach me some restaurant transmitted food names. Not caring to learn, I bade him goodby and walked out. Outside I purchased the morning paper, in which I read that a great robbery which had taken place was being tried before Judge Robert Baron. I was astonished, for Bob hal always wanted to become a burglar. In the comic section I noticed that John Billingsley had taken over the job of writing " Jiggs. " He had dedicated his work to his three wives, Margaret Copley, Lillian Rieman and Ruth Ormsby. He had divorced them all because he said none was suited to his ideas of a loving wife. After his third di- vorce, he had put an advertisement in the want-ads for an affectionate wife. Among those answering were Augusta Dudley, Esther Glazier and Sara Al- pert, former classmates. John refused to accept any of them, saying that his other failures were wives who were school chums. In the social section was the announcement of the wedding of Gladys Norman and Bennie Schnei- der. The attendants were Mabel Shackleford, Mary Shepherd and Mary May. Rev. William Linder officiated (he was always such a good boy in high school). Later, I found out that Bill had married Emma Lichtsinn. At this point I was interrupted by a huge person bumping into me. On looking up I saw Floyd Smith, who always had a cave-mannish look, al- though he wanted to become a bachelor. He told me the astonishing news, 18 SENIOR BOOSTER PROPHECY— Cont ' d. that he was a music composer, and had composed the great song, " Sweet- heart, Be My Sweetheart. " He said Charlotte Canaday, who had always been noted for men friends, had become a vamp, and horrors! she was still an old maid. At that moment a shrill clang sounded, and down the middle of Washington street came the " Black Maria. " It stopped nearby and took a passenger, whom I recognized as Francis Manion. He was arrested for speed- ing (65). At noon I ate in the Claypool dining room, and was astonished when Gertrude Shannon asked for my order. She told me that all our friends were successful in every kind of work. Edward Burton, who was following in the footsteps of honorable Lew in becoming an auctioneer, had married Anna Saperstein. Marvin Davis had surpassed my imaginations of his cleverness by becoming mayor. In his selection of city officials, Charles Dant had been appointed " Smoke Inspector. " He risked his life by accepting the position. Babette De Motte and Bertha Otte were now joint owners of a " Modiste Shop " on the Circle. By this time I was ready to go to my room. On entering the lobby I was stopped by a dele gation of women. The main speaker it seemed was Ruth Porter, who said they were representing the " Bachelors ' and Old Maids ' Club. The group also included Lena Cohen, Diana Greenspan, Louise Engel- king and Clara Craft. It thought this was fine to have such beliefs. Among the bachelors were Thomas Stephens and Frank Siple. I wondered why these bachelors didn ' t pick up courage to ask some of the maids to join them in the happy union of matrimony. Stepping into the elevator I was greeted by another school friend, Hawthorne Graves. He asked me whether I had seen Corene Allen since graduation. I replied in the negative, and he said she was now a history teacher in West Side High School. I thought that was fine. He told me that he was married to one of our classmates, who was no other than Lillian Stewart. By this time the elevator had ascended to the top floor, and as I wanted to get off on the second, I had to ride down again. That afternoon I spent in meditating upon the astounding facts which I had learned concerning my high school friends. I firmly resolved to visit the school on the morrow. But lo, and behold, I was aroused from my reverie by the clanging and jangling of the telephone. Upon answering it, I heard the voice of Olga Bonke. She invited me to visit the Riley Hospital. I immediately accepted her kind invitation. I boarded the street car and who should be conductor — why, no one but Jacob Axelrod. He always was good at looking for tickets. I arrived at last at the hospital grounds, and I saw Robert Stewart holding the job of chief horticulturalist. I spoke to him, but had to pass on. On reaching the building, I was greeted by Olga Bonke, who was now head nurse at that institution. Her friendliness had certainly won the hearts of all the little children. Assisting her were Eva Shields, Clara Burnett, Violet Jacobsen and Bertine Hughes. Walking down the corridor I met Dr. Harold Darnell, who had reached the hilltop of fame in a " cutting manner. " Leis- urely strolling through the different wards, I was confronted by other nurses, who were Alma Voils and Kathryn Kornbroke. I talked to them a while, but I had to hurry on. On leaving the building, I encountered Edna Bell and Myrtle Jones, who were now head cooks at the hospital. It was early in the afternoon, so I invited Olga to go with me to visit Manual. I had heard that the teachers were giving a banquet in honor of Miss A. Knox, who was now retiring from active service. At the school I met Florence Talkington, who was Dramatic Art teacher; Mildred Wessel was now commercial teacher. She informed us that Edith Clark, who had wanted to be a Greek goddess, had become a grave digger ' s wife. Thelma Borgman had succeeded Miss Treat as lunch room manager. Assisting, Alma Franke, Jean Williamson, and Vivian Terry were chief bean cookers, and rivaled with each other on the cooking of them. On speaking to them I found that Leora Smith, who wanted to become a stenographer, now had pierced the political circle and had become a leading suffragette in the city. I learned also that Thelma Maschino, who was always an indefinable char- SENIOR BOOSTER 19 PROPHECY— Cont ' d. acter, was now an art model for the school. Myla Herrmann was now music teacher. Upon leaving school that day I was surprised to see Morris Hughes. He wasi sitting on top of a city dump wagon. He hailed me and said that Cecelia Kauffman, whose ambition had always been to become an opera singer, was holding up the standards of a modern maiden. I arrived at the hotel to find my friend Lucille Zimmerman waiting to sell me a magazine. Since I knew she was a good talker, I bought one immediately. She left directly and I went to my room to dress for dinner. That evening my wait- ress was Bessie Wild. After dining I sat in the lobby and meditated. About 9 o ' clock I returned to my room in time for the bedtime stories over the radio. I recognized the voice of Cecelia Kestenbaum broad casting. Think- ing of all my good fortune in hearing and seeing my beloved school chums, I retired with only one thought — that all my friends were successful, not in self benefit alone, but for others, too, it seemed. I was prouder than ever of my wonderful classmates and school. I — thought — and — goodnight. IVY DAY SECTION IVY DAY " And we, the class of January, Nine- teen Hundred and Twenty-Five, hereby present to you, the class of June, Nine- teen Hundred and Twenty-Five, this time-honored trowel, which has passed through the hands of every senior class since 1910 and which has planted every ivy vine that now clings to the walls of this grand old school — our school! " Thus, did the senior class of January, 1925, present the old silver trowel to the June class at one of the finest Ivy Day exercises ever held at Manual. The unusual success of the exercises was due to the untiring effort of prac- tically every member of the class under Mr. Edward Holloway. We have ample right to be proud of our Ivy Day because at that time the new school song, " Emmerich Manual, " was first presented to the school. Mr. Holloway, composer of the song, was ably assisted by Miss Ewing. The Ivy Day spirit was wonderful. The Ivy Day poem, written by Violet Jacobsen, was received with tremen- dous applause. The program : 1. Processional. Alma Mater — Cho- rus, orchestra. 2. Girl ' s Glee Club— Song, The Ivy. Music by Miss Ewing and Mr. Hollo- way. 3. Presentation of Ivy — President Leon Hutton. Acceptance of Ivy — Mr. McComb. IVY DAY SONG It ' s time to part as we must do, We can not always stay At Manual, our dear old school, The school we love so well. But now has come the time to say Good-by, our dear old friend, We ' ve done our best, been loyal and true, And now we must leave you. Chorus : Good-by, good-by Old Manual, It ' s time to say good-by ; For four long years we have been here None else has been so dear. Though now we have to leave yon, We ' ll e ' er to you be true, Good-by, good-by Old Manual, We ' ll always think of you. — Ruth Ormsfty. 4. Ivy Day Song, by Ruth Ormsby. 5.

SENIOR BOOSTER 21 A LITTLE JOURNEY The January Seniors gave their Class Play, The Little Journey, on Tuesday afternoon, December 16, and Wedneesday night, December 17. Both perform- ances were successful. One afternoon in April a train with many types of passengers left the Grand Central Station in New York, bound for the Pacific coast on the lit- tle journey. Mrs. Bays, a very home-like grandmother, found much excite- ment in her four days of traveling on the Pullman car; however, her grand- daughter, Lily, enjoyed the company of two eastern college boys. Much confusion arose when Julia, assisted by the porter and all the occupants of the car, was unable to find her ticket and was ordered by the conductor to leave the train at the next station. After much hesitancy she accepted money offered her by Jim, a gracious westerner who occupied the seat next to her. The traveling salesman accidentally found himself becoming inter- ested in Annie and her baby. The wealthy, self-assured Mrs. Welch left nothing unseen or unsaid; however, after misfortune had overtaken them she proved that she cer- tainly was not heartless. The characters wish to thank the members of the staff who so faithfully worked on the Class Play. They are as follows: Miss Perkins, Miss Sanders, Olga Bonke, Verl Whetstine, Frank Schmedel, Robert Stoeffler, Carlos Ames, Nathaniel Lindsey, Martell Mitchell, Maurice Bailey, Gola Emery, Leo Selig, George Grieb, Mary Shepherd, Stella Metzger, Lena Cohen, Celia Kauffman, Miss Baldwin, Miss Failing, Bertine Hughes, Thelma Borgmann, Thelma Armfield, Louise Brunner, Myla Herrmann, Gladys Norman, Miss Knox, John Billingsley, Ed.

SENIOR BOOSTER 23 OUR BOY ATHLETES LEON HUTTON (Dizz) played as a regular for three years on our foot- ball team. End was his favorite position, and we all know how well he could play that position. In basketball he scrapped with the varsity during one season and made good at either forward or center. He has been one of the mainstays on our track team. He went to the State meet one year and has always supplied his share of points to help win our dual and triangular meets. It will take quite a bit of athletic ability and hard fighting for any one to fill the vacancies he is making. ROBERT STOEFFLER. Track has been Bobbie ' s main standby in athletics. He was a distance runner. His size handicapped him, but never- theless he stepped past many a big man to win this event. He always earned his share of points in the meets in which he participated. In football his dodging ability helped him make many good runs. He was one of Mr. Swan- son ' s most reliable reserves. He ' s another good fellow leaving Manual. HENRY BRANDT (Heinie) first demonstrated his athletic ability when he played forward on the second basketball team last year. He is now show- ing rare form on this year ' s varsity. Keep it up, Heinie. He has played baseball and also ran on the track team. We know he will make good in which ever sport he enters this spring. JOHN BILLINGSLEY. John played guard on the football team. An injured knee caused him to refrain from this sport for about four weeks. He returned to the game with the old pep and was chosen as one of the fifteen players of the three city high schools to receive the Purdue Alumni medal. He ran on Mr. Morrison ' s track team and was responsible for quite a few points last year. He also plays basketball. Let ' s see you step out this year, Johnnie. GLEN TURNER. Coming from Logansport in his Junior year, Glen soon attracted attention by his basketball playing. He played on the second team last year, but this year he is varsity material. He is playing center and going good. Keep it up Glen, ol ' boy. Too bad he wasn ' t here longer. FRANK SCHMEDEL. Though quite heavy and round, Frank sure can bounce a tennis ball. He wields a wicked racquet and has always played a good brand of tennis when he represented Manual. He was Manual ' s single champ in 1922. Keep it up, Frank, you will soon be able to beat Tilden. ARTHUR STURM. Although of the opposite build from his rival, Schmedel, Arthur is just as good at times and better at other times. Though not a Tilden III, he is Sturm I and, at present, the Manual tennis champ. Good work, Art. DOUGLAS CLEARY. Doug pitched on our baseball team. He sure was a fooler for the opposing batters. We probably will have a hard time find- ing someone to fill his shoes. You did well while you lasted, Doug; wish you had started a little bit sooner, though. OUR GIRL ATHLETES The January ' 25 class has a good representation in girls ' athletics. In the different sports, the following girls are included : ALMA VOILS (Al) has played off-center on the girls ' varsity team for two years, having been a substitute at guard for one year. Alma has also played volley ball and is a participant in baseball. Alma will be greatly missed this year on the basketball team. We hope she will post so she can play again this year. BERTHA KLINGE (Bert) has played on the sub team for three years. She takes part in volley ball games and loves spring baseball. The saying, small but mighty, " may be applied to Bert. Bert shows fine form in all athletics. THELMA ARMFIELD (Thelm) has been on the varsity team for three years, playing forward for the past two years and off-center during her first year. Volley ball and baseball are other sports in which Thelina has shown her " stuff. " This year Thelma is eligible to play if she posts, which she will more than likely do. 24 SENIOR BOOSTER Can YDLT Solve I?

SENIOR BOOSTER 25 THE BASKET BALL SQUAD Basketball, so far this season, has been going fine. The varsity squad is composed of two teams; one a heavy set, composed of football players, who are easily capable of taking the sectional honors here; there is also a light team of players who can strut the flashiest brand of basketball that could be shown in Indianapolis. With this material and a few extra subs thrown in, Coach Jones should have a team which will represent Manual in the state tournament. The record so far this season is very creditable, and we hope that the team will add more credit to its record. The two home games have shown the school that the team can play real basketball. Our worry now is — does the opposing team have more luck at hitting the baskets than we do? The games this year have been with some of the best in the state, and our team has stacked up a total of 315 points against our oppo- ents ' 3 37 points. Our severest drubbing was given us when the football boys, fresh from the gridiron, held last year ' s runner-up in the state meet, Frankfort, to a 50 to 25 score. All our other defeats have been very close. Our victories have been clean and well earned. The best is all that we can ask and the minimum of our asking is a representation in the state tourna- ment. The second team is also employing the same system as the varsity, a light and a heavy combination. The seconds, in the home games, warm up the crowd for the varsity game, but their real purpose is to drill the varsity in daily practice. Although their actual work is seen by but few, the effect of their work can easily be noticed on the varsity squad. The Senior Booster wishes to thank Mr. Kirkpatrick for furnishing the group pictures, and Mr. Porter for pictures of the class. 26 SENIOR BOOSTER JANUARY 1925 CLASS What They Are Noted For Mr. Sanders — " What ' s this part time for?
