Text from Pages 1 - 84 of the 1926 volume:

IVY DAY SONG The annual Ivy Day is here— So, Ivy vine so small, We ' re planting you with tender hands By dear old Manual ' s wall. The verdant sod has been thrown back With trowel of silver sheen; We ' re placing you in sacred soil So tender, young and green. So thrust thy tiny rootlets down, And let thy branches cling, And ever mounting higher and higher, Old Manual ' s praises sing. Let winters come and north winds blow, Let storms and tempests roar, Remember Manual ' s spirit And ever upward soar. You are a symbol of our love, We leave you here to show Our gratefulness to Manual As on our way we go. And when at last success has crowned The effort we have made, We ' ll still sing Manual ' s praises For foundations she has laid. MARY ROBINSON, To Mr. R. B.

Shouting is also a great help to the teachers to locate a student for a conference assignment. 2. If one pupil should bump into another when turning the corner, the correct thing to do is for each to shoot tbe other on the spot and thereby get rid of any point for argument that may later prove dangerous. 3. When turning a corner, hold out the hand indicating the direction of the desired turn. An endless amount of fun can be had by holding up the hand suddenly so that a passing student will be hit on the nose, thus causing it to bleed and ruin the carpet. 4. Teachers and office force should always be spoken to in a gentle manner. This is essential for the health of the term end grades. If a request in the office is refused, call the offender out in the hall and firmly but gently drape him over the surrounding landscape. An immediate escape is essential. 5. In going out the doors a certain technique should be observed. Slam the door quickly behind as it might by some lucky chance change the entire map of the boy following immediately behind. 6. Running to the lunch room becomes an indoor sport when certain rules are observed. Start at the door of the office and start running with the eyes shut. Every pupil knocked over counts ten points.

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, an- other one of you pops up and re- marks that the senior of today is not as loyal and enthusiastic as the senior of yesterday. Tommyrot! Are the bleachers ever empty at an inter-city football or basketball game? Did the BOOSTER ever fail to come out because of a shortage of subscrip- tions? Did a class play project ever frizzle and fail to go off with a boom? Did anything whatsoever fall flat because it did not have the back- ing 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. 18 SENIOR BOOSTER Esteemed Company of Witnesses: We, the members of the June, 192 6 class of the great Emmerich Manual Training High School, fearing that our illustrious career is about to be ended and that our demise is near at hand, claiming to be the possessors of strong and well minds and holders of physically sound bodies, do hereby write, state and make public our last will and our final testament. To all the members of the faculty who see no sorrow in our end, we leave the satisfaction that must come from seeing so much work well done. Classes may come and classes may go, but the accomplishments of the June class of ' 2 6 must ever stand in the annals as a beacon light to aspiring Seniors. II. To the January class, our rightful successors, we leave: — - 1. Our places in lunch-line, and our appetites. They may occupy and hold our places, but they can never fill — our appetites. 2. Our ability to produce the best Senior Booster ever published. 3. Our aptness in dramatics, so that Miss Perkins and Miss Sanders will be able to rest. Oh, yes! We know they will. 4. Lastly, the thing we most dread to part with in our last hour, our places in the hearts of the faculty. Here we were so deeply and reverently held because — because — our intellectual expansion could cause us to be held no other way. III. The following individual endowments that Ave leave should be treasured and held in the heart ' s deepest pools because they spring from such a noble source — ahem, ahumm, ah . 1. To Mr. Sanders we leave a gold-bound, pearl inlaid edition of " Writing Excuses for Inexcusable Absences, " by Heeza Cutter. 2. To Dorothy Cutshaw we leave Marie Delatore ' s ability to construct a fine complexion. " Save the surface and you save all. " 3. To George Harlan we leave Blackie Rhoade ' s power of attraction. Blackie has a " steady " now and he claims he ' s through attracting. 4. To Dane Jones we bequeath Orvill Teague ' s ability to study two hours on his mathematics lesson — by sitting on it. 5. Any broken pens, lost locker combinations, part times, or stray gum, we bestow freely on the finder to dispose of as he sees fit. 6. We bestow to any aspiring six footer Paul Keller ' s ability to clean the moon. 7. We bequeath Glen Harmeson ' s ability to shoot baskets, the poor things, to Al Rubush. 8. To the coming prophet of the January class we leave Hazel Gooch ' s ability to foretell, as well as the ancient sires. 9. Isadore Davis ' ability to edit the Booster can only be pla ' ced away on the shelf of memory, for no one can ever rise to such heights again. 10. Lester Cruse ' s bib is hereby given to Ralph Elrod in order to prevent a lasting impression — from soup stains. 11. To aspiring cadets we leave Major Quinlan ' s ability to command — attention. IV. To Miss Perkins and Miss Sanders, we will our hearty appreciation and thanks for their coaching of our class play. To Miss Knox, Mrs. Bing, Miss Ebbert, Mr. Ragsdale and Mr. Wright (Continued on page 39) SENIOR BOOSTER 19 CLASS GIFTS -JUNE, 1926 By ARTHUR TRUITT To Glen Harmeson, we give the presidency of the Canary Islands.

(Continued on page 35) 20 SENIOR BOOSTER In the fair month of September, the year 1922, Manual Training High School for the first time gave shelter to us, the June Class of ' 2 6. The natal day of our high school career did not harmonize with the prevailing weather which was lashing contemptuously against raincoats, umbrellas, etc. What the foregoing means is that we sought refuge in the warmth of the old Aud. Here Mr. McComb gave a fine address that encouraged 212 of us to stick around this glorious temple of knowledge for four years. That was a wonderful year for a freshman. One thing that stands out clear — few forget it — a memorial victory over an old rival on the gridiron. Remember? Now comes the warm days, the tropical sun, that ruined school- girl complexion and ah — sweet oblivion in a summer vacation. Sometime between the last rose of summer and the hay fever season there came a date that brought us back to our old Alma Mater; now as Sophomores. Running true to form, we gave the incoming freshmen a race for their money and avenged our pride. Again the seasons shift scenes; the elements describe winter with all its charming personality. The coal man ' s prayer wasn ' t answered however, but we had a scare with a snow May the ninth. Time doesn ' t take time out, and we soon found out that it was this time next year — ah, summer ' s over — life is sweet for us now, we hold our heads high, for we are Seniors. Now, perhaps you would like to peer into our meetings and see what happened every Wednesday at roll call. September 30, 1925. Our first meeting! Everybody ran around and congratulated each other for being fourth year students. After the excite- ment was over, it was decided that Glen Harmeson would make the best president, so Glen assumed that office. Some one must take the place of Glen when he ' s off duty, so William Woerner was our selection for vice- president. Due credit to Harme and Bill; they ' re great kids and fine officers. October 14, 1925. Our-president calls his first meeting to order in a bashful boy manner. The minutes are read for the first time and as Lillian King did a good job of it, she was the choice for secretary. Lillian has proved to be the idealistic example of her office, don ' t forget her, you ' ll hear from her later. November 4, 1925. Our president gave a short talk, thanking the class for his election. Money seemed somewhat superfluous, so Lester Cruse was elected treasurer of the class. Two committees were appointed. Color Com- mittee: Gertrude Helmuth, Gladys Emerich, Mildred Crone, Gertrude Lance. Arm Band Committee: Norman Young, Tony Masarachia, Dorthy Lamb, Hilda Rabb. Miss Knox gave a short talk regarding the plans for Ivy Day. November 11, 1925. Today the class color was first chosen. Royal purple was the first choice. A report was heard from the Arm Band Com- mittee and six armbands were submitted for consideration. ' November 12, 1925. Well, what ' s this? Oh, it ' s Just our first special meeting. You ' ve heard of the theory that is advanced against the feminine gender, that one about changing your mind often. That proved to be the cause of the meeting. The class color was changed to cerise. The arm band designed by Tony Masarachia was chosen. Miss Knox appointed Lucille Morris to do the buying of ribbons for our class. November 18, 1925. The Arm Band and Ribbon Committees announced that the fruit of their labors would be distributed soon. Miss Knox tutored us for a great event — Ivy Day. Dorthy Weir and Don Menke were selected to lead the class. SENIOR BOOSTER 21 Friday. November 20. IVY DAY FOR THE JANUARY CLASS. IT WAS GREAT. December 10, 1925. Brr — it ' s winter now, and no one has left for Florida yet. The vice-president called his first meeting to order. Plans for the Christmas party, to be held December IS, were discussed. December 11, 1925. Hurray! Another special meeting. The regular Senior pin was chosen. Gertrude Heimuth was appointed to buy pins for the girls and Kenneth Peek to get the pins for the boys. December 18, 1925. The Christmas party came off. It was a fine party and doomed the Charleston. Perhaps that dance might have doomed the gym. December 25, 1925. What generally happens on this date? January 7, 1920. Well, vacation ' s over already. Miss Knox read a letter from the Day Nursery thanking the class for the Christmas gift. Here ' s the only tragic part of this dialogue. You picked George Lloyd historian. He appreciates your choice anyway. Sh — we have a mysterious woman in our midst. She claims to know the Book of Truth by heart. You placed your future in the magic crystal of Hazel Gooch, our Prophet. January 13, 1926. Christmas generosity not passed yet; we elected a Giftorian. Art Truit ' s kind face proved to be no handicap, and Art won the job. We ' ve word that he is going to be a charity worker. Don Menke ' s wise head will create beneficiaries for us as Don was the choice for Will Maker. Don ' t forget this young cou rtier, either. February 2, 1926. Ah, but doesn ' t time flitter hither and thither. The new semester has started now. Glen Harmeson was unanimously re-elected president. William was re-elected vice-president, and Lillian King was re- elected secretary. February 9, 1926. Kenneth Rhoade ' s was made treasurer of the class. The following students were appointed to the Class Play Committee: Ger- trude Heimuth, William Jensen, Nellie Davidson, Marjorie Schuttler and John Perry. February 16, 1926. Gertrude Heimuth announced that the Romantic Age, by A. A. Milne, had been selected as the class play. Miss Perkins gave a short talk about the play. Isadore Davis was elected editor of the Senior Booster. February 25, 192 6. Wipe your perspiring brow and recall how chilly the air was about now. Maybe that will cool you off. Miss Knox inspired the artists to design a class banner. The president appointed the Flower and Motto Committees. Flower Committee: Nellie Fleener Thomas Barn- hardt, Paul Woerner and Mary Ott. Motto Committee: Evelyn Coleman, Leon Levi, James Tapp and Berniece Reinecke. Kenneth Rhoades asked that James Tapp — 208, Harriet Backalow — 209, William Jensen — 210, and Rose Netherton — 211, assist him in collecting the dues. March 9, 192 6. Nellie Fleener announced that the American Beauty E-ose was the class flower. Hazel Gooch, chairman of Ivy Day Committee, asked that all the poets and song-writers hand in their products soon. March 16, 1926. Another hint was expressed to our rhymers in regards to their output. It was seemingly small. March 2 3, 192 6. The class banner was voted on. The banner designed by Thomas Bernhardt was the choice. A special meeting was held in the roll rooms, and the motto, Success Crowns Effort was selected. Spring fever was now spreading with fervor. Vacation was granted to strengthen our endeavors. April 15-16, 192 6. Here they are, Lillian and Don, and in the best class play yet. The Romantic Age. April 27, 1926. It was announced that the Senior Booster would be dedicated to Mr. Morrison. June 2, 1926. Class Day. The time is at hand; we have reached our eleventh hour. And, as the Great Shakespeare would say : " Out, out brief candle. Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour on the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury — signifying nothing. " 22 SENIOR BOOSTER Was it true? The gypsy ' s last words came to me stronger that night. I wondered if she really had bequeathed me her power of reading the future! I might try. The glowing embers soon produced leaping flames. Pictures began to come to view. The styles told me the time was somewhat in the future, 1936 perhaps — ■ I saw myself in Paris recovering from a nervous breakdown from selling P iorida real-estate. Soon I grew anxious to see my friends. I determined to go home immediately. Later, on my way to the station I met Harriet Barkalow who, after having been left a million by some unknown relation, had established a school for poor French maids. Jennie Rose was one of her principal teachers she told me. Cecil Mailes met me to take my bags. He said he had always wanted to travel, and had been traveling from that corner to the station for many years. I bought a ticket from Edward Paul and prepared myself for my first ride on the wonderful land flying machine, ' " The Anti-Gravitational ' It had been invented recently by the wonder chemist and inventor, Don Menke. In recognition of his wonderful gift to humanity, he had been awarded the Noble Prize. A very great honor had come to him, and we had been very proud of him. Sidney Zier, the driver, assisted me to a seat, and for the next five hours I experienced the sensa- tion of flying. On landing on good American soil, I felt more at home. I soon perceived we were at the edge of a large field. From the other end I heard shouts and yells. I proceeded to find out what it was immediately. From a distance I could see colored banners and on coming closer, I per- ceived the words, Harvard and Yale. The annual football game! My heart gave a jump. Just then I saw John Heid, who was taking tickets. He let me in and showed me to a seat. He, I remembered, had always been interested in football and now as ticket-taker could see all the games for nothing. The gun went off. Yale had won. The coach of Yale grinning broadly shook the hand of the disappointed coach of Harvard. Who should I see they were but Glen Harmeson and " Bill " Woerner, our president and vice- president. How well these boys had succeeded in their fine sports. Glen, after shaking hands with me, told me our old friend Benny Lieberman had a permanent position as water-boy. Then a boy with " Yale " all over r. im came toward me smiling. To my surprise it was Christian Carlsen, who was the ale yell leader. Then, who should I see but Norman Young. He told me he had advanced to the position of reporter on the New York " Booster. " He had been a copy writer before, he said. In his new Ford he took me down town. He said he wanted me to look in on the offices of the best news- paper in New York. Almost the entire force was composed of Manualites — my own classmates. In the editor ' s office I found George Lloyd who had made his name famous in the newspaper world. We began to talk of our old classmates. James Tapp had become an Arctic explorer because he had lost all faith in women when Virginia Davidson had refused him. Virginia v.as now taking life easy as the wife of the millionaire soap king, Roland Kyle. Florence Hughes, he said, was the world ' s champion typist and competent office manager. William Dampier, Albert Hauseman, Thomas Bernhardt and George Heiny had found it impossible to part, and so had made up a business in New York and had become known as the " Pie Quartet " from their famous pies. Harold Quinlan had become the commander of the U. S. army and had under him Gordon Brenner and Harry Fritsche. To think these boys, my classmates had reached such heights as these. Then he took me into the next room where I found Marie Delatore to be his private secretary. Marie had given up her career as a dancer, when she had reached the top of the ladder namely, going a round higher than had Pavlowa. SENIOR BOOSTER 23 She grew tired of publicity and so had retired to this life of seclusion. Other stenographers filled the room. Among them I found Isabella Adamson, Ruth Bullard, Bonnie Chambers and Wanelia Cheshire. He said they were the most efficient corps in New York. Just then the managing editor, Maurice Fink, came in. He invited me to dinner that evening, saying he was having a few of the old Manual students out to his housewarming. I accepted the invitation eagerly, glad of having the opportunity of seeing my old friends again. As Norman escorted me out of the building and to my hotel, I saw Orville Lee sweeping the floor. Orville had always had a progressing posi- tion as his ambition. Norman pointed out the loveliness of the building, saying it had been built by David Rathfon and Clarence Schortemeier, rising young architects. He hailed a taxi and whom should I find to be the driver but Otto Doepker. He was a typical taxi-driver only more typical. When we arrived at the hotel, my hat was under the seat. I found John Perry was the manager of the Rautenburg hotel. Joe had started as assistant to the chef and was now owner of the hotel. Lawrence Kloepper was the present chef, John told me, and Hymen Portnov the head waiter. Bernice Helm, Alberta Booker, Florence Barnette, and Elizabeth Baynham were the maids. John Lupear, I discovered before I had been there long, was bell boy. After going up to my room number 113, I talked to Gertrude Lance, the " hello " girl. Elizabeth Lahrman, she said, worked in the check room. After a while Gertrude called me and told me Maurice was waiting for me in the lobby. I went to the elevators ' and found Dorothy Lamb to be the operator. Maurice took me to his beautiful home and to my surprise, I found my hostess to be Maxine Hastings. They had been married for two years. Maurice Regula made a perfect English butler. The other guests were Eugene Ritter, the famous tenor; Bertha Haynes, the second Paderrewski; Harry Fogle, the author, and Ralph Jordan, the humorist. Mildred Miller, famous woman speaker, came later, with Naomi Liesman, the poet. After dinner had been served by Joe Snowball, we went to the theatre to see the latest play, " Sally, " written by Harold Carnagua, a com edian. The leading lady was Lillian King and the hero Art Truitt. The play was very heart- rending. Chorus girls who entertained us, I found to be Lucille Morris, Mildred Lang, Enid Lentz, Lucille Hilt and Mildred Crone. At seven o ' clock the next morning, I prepared to come back to dear old Indianapolis. On the way to the station I found Louise Jordan selling daisies. After buying a bunch from her, I strolled down Fifth Avenue and into a little " Petite " shop. It belonged to the wonderful designer of women ' s clothing, Madame Masarachio. Could this be Tony? Kenneth Peek, the salesman, said that it was. It had become the exclusive shopping place of the Four Hundred. I felt better on the old fashioned train, and so went to the railroad station and boarded one immediately. Kenneth Stout was the train caller. I had a lovely trip with Gertrude Helmuth as companion. She had just completed her course at Columbia University and was coming back to Indianapolis to be dean of the great Indianapolis University. Everett Shannon was president of the new university and Leon Levi, Norman Koep- per, Wilma Meyer and Esther Parsons were on the faculty. Raymond Weldon was the Latin prof. The next morning I went sight-seeing. Everything was changed. In the center of town I went into the tallest building in the world. It was taller than the Wool worth by forty stories. Carl Shaub was the elevator operator. I remembered Carl always had had a very uplifting ambition. In the hall I met Harold Callon, who had become a struggling book salesman. He was trying to sell Irvin Brandenburg ' s book, " The Fall of Antony. " He pointed out to me the office of the city ' s most capable civil engineer, Paul Borders. He had just finished making the first double-decked roads in the United States here. After talking to me awhile, he called a guide. Guides were employed to show people over the city, Indianapolis had become so famous. I was surprised and pleased to find my guide to be Ed Beyersdorfer. He said he had become a guide because his previous position of " slingin sodas " had not given him his usual exercise. He never had been very healthy. The first place we went after having called a machine was to the dear old school. A visit home would not be complete without this. We entered upon a very exciting scene. Blackie Rhoades was being presented a gold watch by the students of old Manual for leading their state basketball team to victory. The assistant coach was Harold Tyler. On the way back to town, I saw one 24 SENIOR BOOSTER of my old friends. Thorton Oliver was pushing a dump cart. The city hall was next on the list. Who should I find conducting the affairs of the good ship " Indianapolis " but William Jensen. He had begun as a light fixer in the city hall and had worked himself up to this position. Clara Rosebrock came to take his dictation, and so we left. Next we went to the court house and to the divorce court. Who, I wondered had grown tired of married life? Who should be here but Lester Cruse and Mildred Schneider (don ' t get excited). Lester was the judge and Mildred his secretary. The Indianapolis Water Company was next. The president we found to be our old friend Alfred Belles. He said he was always able to give pretty good service to his patrons except on a few occasions. As we came out, we met a boy selling newspapers. I thought I recognized him. It was Sam Kauffman. The " extra " was about the winner of the Indianapolis Beauty Contest. The head- lines said: " Evelyn Coleman Wins Trip to Atlantic City. " On the next page I read about the sad story of a prominent society woman. It was Gladys Emrich. She determined to leave the country because she had been disappointed in her last love affair. The paper said it was an Indianapolis man, too. I wonder if you could guess who it was. Her last words before she sailed had started her friends sobbing, and it had now become the latest phrase, " Oh, you wouldn ' t, would you? " On the fashion page I saw pictures cf some new styles as presented by Elizabeth Rice, who was an authority on the subject. She had just returned from Paris with a wonderful new ward- robe. She was known as the best dressed woman in Indianapolis. Gustav Dongus had become Speaker of the House in Washington and Orville Teague was to fight Jack Dempsey the next day. My old friends were certainly prominent in the affairs of their native city. Next we went to the new Y. W. C. A. building. Here I found Ruth Seele to be secretary of this, the largest " Y " in the world. She had succeeded in the wonderful work she had started in high school. Next we came to the " Greenwich Village " of Indianapolis. Here I found the popular artist Gay- lord Sparks, surrounded by his pretty models, Rose Netherton, Vera Norris, Alberta Siefert and Dorothy Weir. Next we came to the grounds of an attractive home. Here Eve Meyers had a home for worn out gym teachers. Having become worn out in the business herself, she had established this home. On the way back, we saw an advertisement for the latest film, " The Only One " as played by Marjorie Schuttler. She had just married we saw by the last " Photoplay, " the producer, Glen Shaw. Jessie Porter and William Mc- Pace, famous comedians were booked here for next week, Ed told me. David Jung had become a doctor. Then we saw the park that had been dedicated to Albert Masten, the world ' s greatest Charlestoner. This park contained a home for the young people who had lost their homes because of this dance. It had special reenforced walls and floors. Lavon Thompson, Mildred Wer- ner and Esther Wegehoeft were inmates. Coming back to the downtown district, we entered a beautiful marble bank. On the president ' s door I found the name of Isadore Davis. He very kindly escorted us through his bank. We saw John Kime, the golf champion, who had just won from John Pronkl in a close match. Across the street was a clothing store owned by Ben Goldman. His motto was, " Wear tight- fitting clothes — they wear out quickest. " His chief salesman was Samuel Brateman, who always made sales with Ben watching him. At Ayres on the Balcony Beauty Shop we found some of our friends. Lillian Fagin was the beauty operator. She was marcelling the hair of Oscar Levin, the actor. Other regular customers of hers were Harry Lyzott and Louis Benedict. Alma Wenning was the manicurist. In charge of the silver department at Ayres was Norma Mitchell with Ruth Mathews as her assistant. Salesladies in the department were Lula Piel and Ruth Poggemeyer. They tried their talents on me and I found them to be good, but I needed no silver at the time. On the corner of Meridian and Washington Streets we saw Freida Otting leading a little mission band. They sang many heart-rending songs. Just then we saw Isadore Antin, the acrobat, performing some stunts on the tallest building. After that thrill was over, we found out that there was a Bauer and Bell circus in town. Surely this could not belong to my old friends, George and Clarence, but they were the same. As we neared the circus grounds, we could see the tops of the tents decorated for the occasion. After SENIOR BOOSTER 25 buying some pink lemonade from Hilda Rabb and some popcorn and peanuts from Dorothy Morris, we went into the tent and settled down to enjoy the performance. To my surprise, William Templemeyer was the ringmaster. He played his part very well. Mildred Heckman was the animal trainer (all she did was to look at them) and she looked very neat in her suit. We heard trumpets blown by Herbert Schuerman and Hyman Toobin, and then the beautiful ladies on horseback came majestically in. I could hardly believe my eyes when I found them to be Freida Grossman, Louise Haines, Alma Lipp and Ollie Lucas. They performed their stunts, making me hold my breath with their daring. The star dancer was Frances Neuhaus. On the outside we looked into some side shows. Nellie Fleener was the fattest lady in the world, while Mary Schmidt took first honors as being the thinnest. Helen Elbel was the snake charmer and Alma Teifert was teaching the little fishes how to swim. After buying a balloon from Florence Wilkins. we went back to my hotel. I was completely worn out, but much elated at having seen so many of my friends. The next day we finished our tour. We first visited the studio of the sculptor, Allen Hamblen. He said he had begun his work by modeling in chewing gum, but when Robert Hathorn, the shoe manufacturer, saw his work, recognized his talents and offered to finance him, and he had made good. We then went to the oldest and best known finishing school in Indi- anapolis. Whom should I find here but Mildred Gregory. She said she thought she had done humanity more good doing this than getting married which had been her first intentions. She had on her staff, Eleanor Bader, Mary Schakel, Bernice Reinecke and Mary Robinson. Fern Whitehead was the gymnastic teacher. Next we went to the " Heede Sewing School. " Ger- trude Heede,with Bertha Geer as assistant, had started this school after think- ing over the tragedy of bridges ' knowing nothing of the art of sewing, and so had considered it her duty to teach them. Velma Gephart seemed to be a ready pupil. We went to the Claypool for lunch. Here we found a great cele- bration in honor of the great exangelist, Mary Coleman. Mary Childers was the hostess. Waiting on them were Cora Johnson, Willie Jones and Louise Hinton. After lunch, Ed told me there was an exhibition of the dancing pupils of Pauline Maples at the Murat theatre. We hurried to get there on time and had just been shown to a seat by Julius Zukerman when the curtain went up. The first number was " The Dance of the Snowflakes " as interpreted by Carrie Gray and Leland Harding. Then a very beautiful spring ballet was given in which Dorothy Heil, Freida Adelman, Edna Archer and Florence Beard took part. Opal Crush did a solo dance. Then Golda Rothfeder, the well known impersonator, imitated a few world famous people. One, the people recognized immediately and clapped for five solid minutes. It was our beloved sponser, Miss Knox. Paul Keller, the ventriloquist, then enter- tained us for a while, after which Pauline gave an exhibition of her wonder- ful talent. Then we went to a dear little Chinese tea shop for tea. Edna Biddy had fulfilled the ambition of her life in the building of this. Edna Brehob had designed the place. She told me that the Chinese ambassador to America, Newton Chin, while passing through the city said it looked so real he could almost believe he was at home. Robert Covert, the contractor, was having tea here also. I asked him if he had seen any of the girls and boys in our class lately, and he said that Mary Wilson, the essayist, had been entertained here in the city last week. Edna May Burns and Pearl Bryan had charge of his offices he said. Pearl was in charge of the office at Terre Haute. After walking a few blocks, we came to a little shop. It belonged to Sarah Clark, Helen Wilcox and Marcella Dee. Here you could buy the best home made cakes and pies and candies in the city. Ed remembered that we had not visited the state legislature. Here we went immediately only to find Nellie Davidson to be the speaker of the House. Just now there was an issue between the two orators, Helen Thompson and Dorothy Dinmger, who belonged to opposite parties. They both talked loud and long. Then Lucille Stuertz, another famous woman speaker, made a very famous speech on the subject of " The Ills of Harmless Flirtations. " Then Walter Stokes, the waiter, brought her a drink and while she had a chance Eleanor Stettler presented her bill, after which Lucille went on talking.

Five Seniors on the squad. We certainly are proud of them. Track team, made a strong bid for tbe State championship. Seven of our thinly clads are Seniors. SENIOR BOOSTER 33 SENIOR ATHLETICS By EUGENE E. BITTER HARMESON. Glen Harmeson (Harmie), who is our president, is one of the outstanding athletes in our class. Glen has competed in every branch of athletics except golf. He spent two years on the football team. Every one hated to see him be taken out of a game. Harmie showed up exception- ally well in basketball. He played on the basketball team for three years. His other main branch of athletics was baseball. He, also, was on the track and tennis team for a year each. We hate to see Harmeson leave Manual, but we are glad he is in our class. CRUSE. Lester (Les) Cruse is another of Manual ' s athletes. Les was the treasurer of the class the first semester of his Senior year. Cruse ' s main branch of athletics is baseball, in which he competed for three years. Les showed his ability as a football man in the backfield last fall and in 1924. Everyone in the school knows what a big help Cruse was to the basketball team this year. SHAW. Glen Shaw has only been in Manual for a shor t time. He com- peted in athletics at the Rossville High School before he came to Manual. Glen was one of the dash men on " Shorty " Morrison ' s track team. Shaw turned in some good time on the track. He was also on the Varsity basket- ball team. Too bad he wasn ' t able to play in the sectional. WOERNER. William Woerner (Bill), otherwise the vice-president of the June ' 2 6 Class, is also one of Manual ' s athletes. Bill was the man who " snagged " most all the forward passes for Manual last year. He was on the football team for three years. Woerner, also was one of Manual ' s basketball men, who didn ' t get to play in the sectional. He was on the basketball team for three years. Bill was on the baseball team for one year. KIME. John Kime (Ace) was not much for basketball or baseball, but you should see him swing a tennis racque t. Kime was on the tennis team for three years and was captain in 1925. Johnny turned in to Mr. Morrison some good time on the track. Kime also spent a year knocking the little white " pill " around over the fairways and greens for Manual. In so many words, Kime was on Manual ' s golf team for a year. RHOADES. Kenneth (Blackie) Rhoades is the treasurer of our class, He is the man who was good for points in a basketball game. Blackie played with the Manual basketball team for two years. He ran with the track team for a year. PEEK. Kenneth (Kenny) Peek is quiet, but mighty. Peek ' s branch of athletics is track. He almost always turned in some good time and took points in the track meets. Kenny was on the track team for three years. He showed that he was mighty when he played in the backfield of the foot- ball team. Whenever Peek was given the ball to carry he always made a good try to gain ground. He was on the football team for two years. PROKL. John Prokl liked football best. He was always ready to play and always tried hard. John was on the football team for three years. He spent a year at putting the shot for the track squad. WOERNER. Paul (Rudy) Woerner, brother of Bill, tried all of the ball games for a year each. He played every game as hard as he could and was generally a point getter for Manual. HEINY. George Heiny was on the track team for two years. George was a distance man and generally took first or second place in his event. He was on the second basketball team for a year. Other June ' 2 6 men worthy of mention in athletics are Otto Doepker, football; Julius Zukerman, basketball; Thomas Bernhardt and William Dara- ( Continued on page 35) 34 SENIOR BOOSTER Manual closed a very unique track season. For the first time in the history of the school a double track schedule was carried out. At the be- ginning of the season, a large squad numbering 150 boys reported for track. Due to the ability of so many men, the double schedule was tried. The team was divided into two squads, one running on Friday and one on Saturday. The experiment proved quite successful from every angle. More men were given the chance for competition than ever before. A great number of Freshmen and Sophomores were developed for future material on tie track teams in Manual. Among the unusual things on the team was the quality of dash men and burdle men. Burdette, Rubush, Brenneman, and Grimes, a quartet of junior runners, are left. Likewise in the middle distance event a number of men are left for next year. Bos- well, Burris, Jones, Reed and Cutshaw form a nucleus for this event. Lyles. Susimichel and Williamson in the hurdles. With Rubush, Muse, Grimes and Brenneman in the field events, Manual should be a confident contender for the State Championship. Heiny, Shaw, Harmeson and Peek will be missed next year. Shaw ' s race in the sectional was the best exhibition of a boy ' s being glorious in defeat that Manual has had in many a season. Shaw was the anchor man on the mile relay team. The leading opponent had a thirty yard lead when Shaw took the baton. Shaw set out to overcome the lead which he did. He was running neck and neck with his opponent till about two yards from the tape, where both men fell but the opponent knocked down the tape first. Shaw was exhausted. Heiny was probably the outstanding character on the team for faithful- ness in training and concentration on his event. Harmeson, who was primarily a baseball man, relieved Dave Coller on the relay team after Coller had suffered a serious injury in lis foot late in the season. Harmeson ' s only regret is that he was not out for track all year. He showed much potential strength that might have been worked up into championship ability. This year ' s team won duel meets from Connersville and Greenwood, losing to Brailz and Richmond. The team was the high point getters in the triangular meet with Kokomo and Shortridge which it easily won. An unusual number of relay carnivals were entered by the M. T. H. S. squad. The remarkable showing of Captain Rubush in the Kokomo relays was one of the outstanding features of the season. Manual ' s " crack " half-mile relay team easily won its event in the Tech relays, but it was disqualified at Kokomo for dropping the baton. Among the outstanding point getters for the season was Captain Al Rubush, with 112 points, Wampner who scored heavily in the hurdles in every meet, Heiny and Shaw in the 440 yard dash, Boswell and Burris in the 880 yard dash, Martin in the pole vault, Grimes and Brenneman in the dashes were other heavy scorers. Of all the eleven track teams coached at Manual by Coach " Shorty " Morrison, none have shown any more determination and fight as this 192 6 team has shown. Manual had twenty men entered in the sectional. Of this number, Rubush, Heiny, Boswell, Martin and Wampner went to the State Track Meet. Rubush won third place in the 100 yard dash at the State Track Meet. Heiny won third in the 44 yard dash and Boswell won fourth place in the 8 80 yard run. These men were against the best men in the state and we hope they will take first honors in the State Meet next year. BASEBALL Manual is the City Baseball Champions. Manual made this sure by defeating Tech on Tech ' s field by a score of 15-10. It is reported that this is the first defeat of Tech on Tech ' s field in eleven years. Manual closed the season with seven wins and four defeats. Two games were not played on account of rain. Manual defeated West Newton 15-1; Lawrence, 20-3; Broad Ripple, 36-4; Beech Grove, 6-0; Cathedral, 5-3; Shortridge, 14-9; SENIOR BOOSTER 35 and Tech, 15-10. Manual lost to Columbus 3-4; Southport, 3-14; Greenfield, 3-4; and Tech, 5-6. The Red and White squad was rained out at Brazil and Shelbyville. The Manual ball team won most of their games by their hitting. The team as a whole was not up to standard in their fielding. Captain Cruse, Harmeson and Tapp are leaving this year ' s ball team. Several other men are leaving this year. There will be many other men left for next year ' s team. Among them are Britton, Elrod, Franke, Harlan, Harrison, Hensel- meyer, Meyer, Neild, Weaver, Witte and Rice. The Freshman baseball team has several players who should offer competition to the players who are left on the varsity. CLASS GIFTS (Continued from page 19) To Julius Zuckerman, we give an " iron doughnut " in memory of basket- ball. To Clarence Bluemel, we give a trip to England (as deck hand on a cattle boat). To Harry Fogle, we give a pet monkey. Bring on the organ. To Mary Robinson, we give first place and a blue ribbon in the Senior ' •Poultry Show. " To Sidney Zier, we give a job as " ice man " at the North Pole. To Gertrude Lance, we give a contract as a " sword swallower " at Spear ' s Park, at the intersection of Dagger and Dirk Streets in West Point. Stuck? To Isadore Davis, " Ye Olde Editore, " we give permission to agitate his vocal chords in singing the new song hit, " Read ' em and Weep. " To all the other members of the class, we give our sincerest appreciation for getting out before the faculty resorted to burning down the building. PROPHECY (Continued from page 25) was at hand, a few office seekers were out in the lobby waiting for the mem- ber. Among them were Mildred Eades, Helen Elbel, Helen Ernsting and Lucille Smith. Mildred wanted to be postmistress, Helen assistant. Helen Ernsting and Lucille wanted other easy political positions. Martin Engle- hardt had become the head of the telegraph company and had Lester Simon and Morris Harris working for him. Morris told us he had just come in with a message. Vernon Roth, Velma Smith the janitoress told us, was city librarian, while Rose Levinsky and Ethel Sandler were his principal assist- ants. Then we heard a band coming up the street. It was led by Bernice Saunders. A parade — it was a parade of women who were contesting to get some issue through for the city. I know it was all right, whatever they stood for, for in the parade were a few of my old friends, Hazel Schwab, Clara Silverman, Florence Hilligoss, Violet Linson and Carrie Lowry. The parade was led by Eula Lorene Rollins. The colors of the parade began to fade! The last blaze flamed high for a last minute, then the embers slowly began to die. It was true — and I had seen all of my old classmates — all climbing high up the ladder of success. Slowly I covered the fire and went to my dreams — happy. SENIOR ATHLETICS (Continued from page 33) phier, basketball; William Templemeyer, track; Joe Snowball, football; James Durret, track; and Harold Carnagua, track; Vernon Roth, tennis. Don Menke, Alfred Belles and Christian Carlsen, members of the June ' 26 class, were the yell leaders for Manual the last year. Menke was yell leader for two years. By " this we have tried to show you why and how much Manual will miss the members of the June, 192 6, class. We haven ' t said much about our girls who belong to the class, but they too will be missed from the bleachers where they are generally seen rooting for their class mates who are members of the teams. 36 SENIOR BOOSTER A Senior ' s Recollection! I was just a freshman, A blooming little fool, On the first day I came . To Manual High School. I did not understand The routine that was here. Strangers on every hand, Both, far away and near. I looked up at the teachers, My face was full of awe. I thought them some creatures Who ate the pupils raw. I became used to it 1 liked it very well. But when reports came out My proud freshman heart fell. " The teachers are not fair " Was all that I could say. For my card was full of B ' s There was not an A! If I had only known it. That was not so bad. For football signals were all — That some sophomores had. I overcame all my grief And said I did not care. But all of my hard luck Did not finish there. I kept on improving, - I thought it very fine. For my average grew till It went past eighty-nine. On the last marking day I averaged " ninety-one. " " Low-man " in my house had " Ninety-one " and then some. There was not another thing Which happened in that year. I thought that the Sophomore Was some duke or some peer. I had my vacation. All I could remember Was that I would be a Sophomore in September. When I came back to school, I did not raise the Dutch Against green and verdant Freshmen, Oh, no, not much. I sent them looking for The elevator which took Them up to the fourth floor, I liked to see them look for 444. How did I accost them? " Hey, freshie, where art bound? " And I would laugh at them When they would look around That year did soon go by A Junior was I then I was very studious And I did make Top Ten. All I have in memory Of that laboring year Is two Top Ten buttons Which I hold very dear. Now I am a Senior, Wise, sagacious, serene. 1 am to be reverenced Whenever I am seen. I go through all the halls, Freshies I give a smile. But, to " cut-up " with them I ' d not myself defile. When I think of leaving The school to me so dear, It brings to my eye A little glistening tear. I can hardly leave it; Yet I know that I must But I will never let My learning go to rust. Farewell to you- Manual, You have been good to me. I will do all I can To give honor to thee. By EDWARD PAUL, June ' 26. George Bauer: " Did you hear about John ' s getting shot? " Isidore Antin: " No, how ' s that? " G. B.: " Ya; he bought two pounds of it this morning. " Mildred Lang: " What does a per- son usually grow in his garden? " Enid Lentz: " Tired.

" SENIOR BOOSTER 37 JOKES By NORMAN YOUNG John Perry: " The way these col- leges scatter their degrees is abso- lutely nauseating. Every Tom, Dick and Harry with a little cheap notori- ety can figure on getting one. The whole system is absolutely indefens- ible. Don ' t you think so? " Alfred Belles: " Yes, I didn ' t get one either. " Maw: " When are you going to fix that fence, Paw? " Paw: " Oh, next week, when our son comes home from college. " Maw: " But what will the boy know about fixing a fence? " Paw: " He ought to know a heap. He wrote me that he ' d been taking fencing lessons for a month. " " I is " began Christian Carlsen. " I am, not is, " corrected the teacher. " I am the ninth letter of the alpha- bet, " Christian went on. The telephone rang and Glen Harmeson answered it. " Hello! " came from the receiver. " Hello! " answered Glen. " Who is this? " again came the voice. " I don ' t know who it is, " said Glen, " I can ' t see you. " Her Dad: " Of course, you have heard my daughter sing. " Martin Englehart: " Yes, sir, but I should like to have her in spite of that. " Louis Benedict: " Oh! what a cute little dolly! Does she say mamma when you squeeze her? " Lucille Hilt: " No! My dolly is a modern doll. When you squeeze her she says, Oh, Boy. " Lester Cruse: " You are from the West, I understand. " Maxine Hastings: " Yes, from Indi- ana. Hoosier girl. " L. C; " Why — er — really, I — I don ' t know — that is, haven ' t quite decided yet. " Harold Callon: " Why did you break your engagement with that school teacher?

" Ruth Bullard: " Horrid? The idea! He got that in basketball. " ' I just adore Julius Zukerman: caviar, don ' t you? " Clarence Bell: " I never heard him except on the phonograph. " Dorothy Weir: " I feel so happy I feel like breaking into song " Lucille Morris: " If you find the key, you won ' t have to break in.. " Tony Masarachia (Standing in front of an exhibition of local art talent labeled " Art Objects " ) : " Well, I should think Art would object and I can ' t say that I blame her. " Gertrude Helmuth had gone to the art exhibit. A friend saw her and told another friend. Friend No. 2 met her a few days later. " Why hello, Gertrude. I ' m awfully glad to see you. I hear you are interested in art. " " Me? Art who? " " Why did they hang Bill Jensen: that picture? " Pauline Maples: " Perhaps they couldn ' t find the artist. " James Durrett was soft-hearted and when it developed upon him to break gently the news of Robert Mot- ley ' s drowning to the bereaved Mrs. Motley, it cost him much paper, ink and perspiration before he sent the following: " Dear Mrs. Motley: " Your hus- band cannot come home today, be- cause his bathing suit was washed away in the surf. " P. S. — " Robert was inside the suit. " 38 SENIOR BOOSTER Freshman (in awed voice) : " See that big fellow over there? He broke three records last week. " George Lloyd: " Mercy, I wouldn ' t let him run the Victrola. " Eugene Ritter: " I can ' t find that record by Sousa ' s band; do you know what became of it? " Maurice Fink: " No! I guess some- body stole a march on us. " Sidney Zier: " Can you write short- hand? " Edna Stone: " Yes, but it takes me longer. " Evelyn Coleman: " I understand that John Lupear got his B.

" SENIOR BOOSTER 39 MANUAL DAY BY DAY This is the last time that I will be able to bore you with this uninter- esting stuff. What did you say about modesty? It was last Monday night the Seniors got their sheepskins. Oh! what a grand and glorious feeling. Maurice Fink is wearing that light suit. You can see him a mile away. He walked into Senior Speech the other day with the above mentioned suit and the entire class became momentarily blinded. Bennie Lieberman was seen walking along the hall with a PURPLE and WHITE bow tie. Sidney Zier is making so much noise that it is impossible to think. The January and June classes have decided to go in together and buy a grand piano for the Aud. This is very nice and it certainly is appropriate as the school is in need of a piano. This is the last week of school and many are coming down the home stretch confident of victory. Many are doubtful if they can stand the pace and still others know that they are beaten but have that well known Manual spirit and will finish the race. Thoughts just won ' t come to me. My mind is beyond control (as usual). I have tried to think of something to say but it is too noisy. Sidney Zier is always working on bookkeeping. It won ' t be long before he is writing a book " How to Keep Books so No One Else Can Figure Them Out. " He has a good start. Bill Jensen is the busiest fellow around here. He is working in Roines playlet, in charge of the stage, and trying to get some money for the Senior Booster. It was in our fourth hour Physiology class when " Bill " Woerner decided to make himself comfortable while the other members of the class gave talks on different subjects. He proceeded to move his chair so that he would face the speaker, and then started to lean back to enjoy the delightful speeches. It was during the most interesting part of the speech that " Bill " forgot him- self and leaned back too far. CRASH! BANG! BANG! and " Bill " was all over the floor. He certainly " fell " for Physiology. While strolling down the corridors the third period, I saw many inter- esting sights. Passing 216, I saw a class putting on a play and after re- ceiving several so called dirty looks, I was compelled to move on. Farther down the hall two girls stood talking about their graduating dresses. " I got the best looking dress; it is sort of (she named a color, but I could not remember it, probably one of her own discoveries) and it is trimmed in — another one of those foreign colors. By that time I had decided that ihere should be a law against foreign colors because they are so hard to pronounce and impossible to remember, and so I started down the hall. Well, here comes George Lloyd with his candy under his arm. He is going to stop and try to sell me some. He did. George is using the profits derived from the candy sale to buy a big and better HARMONICA. I certainly am sorry that this is my last semester here. But I ' ve been here so long that I had to leave something, so I guess I ' ll leave now. With best wishes, as ever, etc., I remain, CHUCK DAVIS.

SENIOR BOOSTER 13 SENIOR ATHLETES FORREST HIGGS. By his graduation we lose one of our best athletes. Sugar was a star in every sport in which he participated and was feared by all our opponents. He was one of the best forward passers in the state, and he had them dizzy with his accurate thro ws. He has been a member of the squad every year he was in school and his place will be hard to occupy. He was also a splen- did pitcher and player on the baseball team. Very few hits have been made off his delivery. We are sorry that he cannot participate in basketball this sea- son because of his ineligibility. He has been a member of the basketball team for three years and has accomplished a great deal in his line. We predict for Higgs a great future in athletics. LESLIE BRANDT. Les was one of our best athletes. He played on the basketball team for three years. He played back-guard and his opponents al- ways found him a hard man to pass. Les was one of the mainstays of the track team for several years and gave a good account of himself. The school will have a hard time filling his place. HURSHELL MARSHALL. Basketball has been Hap ' s most noted standby in athletics. His playing is noticed in every game. He plays floor-guard and for- ward and is very proficient in both positions. He is considered a fast dribbler and a good basket shot. When Hap scratches his head the opponents had better be on the lookout, for something is going to happen. He is also a star on the track team, doing his best work on the pole vault. We know that Hap is going to get us the city championship this year in basketball. WILBUR NOLL. Will was another good athlete who played on the football team last year and the year before. This year he was ineligible and was unable to play. He played in the backfield and was a very hard line plunger. He also played on the basketball team for several seasons. Last year he played a great game at floor guard during the entire year. We wish Wilbur could play some more for Manual. HARRY KING : Harry was one of our tennis players. He secured several points for us in tournaments. Harry went out for football this fall and did very efficient work on the second team. Keep up the good work, Harry. FORREST HOUSE. Sonny was another star on our second team. He played quarterback and gave a good account of himself. Although not a large person, his presence on the football field was felt. GEORGE GILLIGAN. George went out this year for football and did very well. He was a mainstay of the second team and always in the play. HERBERT STONER. Herb plays on the second team in basketball and his work so far this season has been very creditable. We expect a great deal of him this season. VIRGIL HEBERT. Butch was a very good player on our second team. He played in the line and the opponents always found him a hard man to get through. Others who have participated in athletics to some extent are Smiley Young, track ; Otto Leonhardt, track ; William Martin, football ; Gaylord Sweany, track ; David Coller, track ; Robert Platte, football and track.

Does it mean supporting your school in all athletics when they win? No. It means far more than that. School support not only means support of athletics, but the support of every ac- tivity that your school may enter into. Manual is your school. Support it. If it is good enough for you to attend, it it good enough for you to support, not " knock. " Some students say they are supporters because they attend all ath- letic contests. This is only partly true. Athletics involve only one part of your school ' s activities. So enter into them all. This is the advice of seniors who know, because they have spent four years of hard labor here. Underclass- men, if you really want to be boosters, be boosters of everything, instead of only athletics. OUR MOTTO Our Motto, " He conquers who con- quers himself, " is one that can be ap- plied by everyone throughout every walk of life. In order for a person to succeed he must first conquer himself. In order to command people in this world we must first be able to command ourselves and follow orders from our superiors. During the four years we have spent at Manual we have endeav- ored to obey the instructions of our teachers ; that is why we are now at the last barrier. When we leave our much loved school we must, at first, take orders from someone else, but in so doing we are fitting ourselves to give orders. And if we have conquered ourselves we will be able to conquer all ' obstacles which we will be forced to face in the incessant struggle of life. AH great men and women have, before becoming great, conquered themselves. Surely, of the one hundred and fifty seniors who have chosen this great picee of ad- vice for their motto, there will be some who will mount to the top-most heights in the climb of success-ward. Those of us who do succeed will never forget the low stations we first held, nor will we forget " the degrees by which we did ascend. " In later lif-2 we may be happy to look back over our path of life, and think of what we can attribute our success. When we do this, our thoughts will dwell on the firm motto of our senior class of high school, " He conquers who conquers himself. " FAREWELL After four years at our dear Manual, we, the January Seniors, must go out and help fill in the places waiting for us in the busy world. We hav t e gained many friends whom we do np-feiwish to leave. We have been befriended by teachers whom we shall always remem- ber. We now go out to choose our course. We dislike to say farewell, but old Alma Mater will live in our mem- ory forever. In the year of 1922, the month of January, there stepped through the portals of Manual Training High School a tribe of beings, who called themselves freshmen. They acted their name ; for as they crossed the threshold they forgot their mission and stood staring at the big clock, that greets all newcomers, to see if it had a picture on its face. They aroused themselves, however, when a hand was laid on their shoulder, and a voice was heard to say, " Follow me. " They were led to the Library, given their passport, and then taken to the Old Auditorium. It was in that memorable room that they heard the " Com- mencing Exercises, " given by Mr. McComb. The outlook after that was fearful. Their calm was broken by a storm of rules and regulations. Some weakened and were lost ; others lifted their heads and cried, " Excelsior ! " They had reached the first goal and the atmosphere was not quite so dense. In the role of Sophomores they raised their eyes, elevated their mind, and spoke a language almost unknown to freshmen. Wonderful progress ! — Yes, for those who were ready to open the door to Juniorship; but alas for those who must say, " Not yet. " When they rounded the corner at the half-way mark, they could see, not so far ahead, the golden gate of Seniordom. It was at this point that several of these distinguished personages were compelled to consult an eye spcialist, because of the glittering rays from this gate. But they who seek to succeed never fail and through the Golden Gate there passed a weary, dust- covered, burden-laden procession of would-be Seniors — Seekers of success. Seniordom ! How invigorating, uplifting, and soul-stirring ! How pleasant it was to be looked up to, even if it must be by wistful, staring freshmen. But there was work even in Seniordom, and this class, as it shall now be called, must have some leaders to guide them safely over the top. Thus, on the eleventh day of March, 1925, Wilbur Noll was elected president and Leander King vice- president. Miriam Wit, with the combined ability of her brother and sister before her in holding offices, was elected secretary. As all organizations must have guardians for their riches, Leslie Brandt was chosen tr easurer. The progressive spirit of this class quickly led it to select a color that would distinguish it from other ambitious classes. Blue was chosen, — perhaps to re- mind many of the members of Mondays. A call for designs of armbands was made and many responses were given. From the number submitted by the tal- ented artists of this class, the one made by Leander King was the choice of the class. The standard block form was selected as the design for the class pin. It was at this period that the monotony of too much work was cast aside, and the class participated in the revelries of the Ivy Day of the June 1925 class ! Great enjoyment was derived by both classes. Work must be continued ,however, in order to conquer; so on May 13, 1925, Lucile Sterchi was elected Historian. On May 20, 1925, the class elected Margaret Black, Prophet ; Smiley Young, Will- maker, and Arthur Cleveland, Giftorian. All business in fine shape; Father Time decreed them a three months ' vacation. On September 30, 1925, new officers were elected. Leander King was made president and Leslie Brandt, vice-president. Miriam Wit was re-elected secretary and Hershell Marshall, treasurer. The committee on the designs for banner and the selection of a motto was put to work ; and through the efforts of its search, Margaret Cornell brought forth a design that pleased all. The motto chosen — " He conquers who conquers himself " was also submitted by Margaret. On November 3, 1925 it was announced that Miss Moore would have charge of the Ivy Day Program. It may be said here that Miss Moore has the ability to bring out the best in the class for Ivy Day ceremonies. On November 10, 1925, the class chose Bretzman as their photographer, In order that they might leave a good record of their cheerful countenances for the edification of coming generations of Manualites.

To the rest of the class we give our best wishes for a happy, successful and well-earned graduation. Smiley is the traffic cop and he says, " Stop, " so stop it is. SENIOR BOOSTER 17 ATHLETICS FOOTBALL It did not take long for Manual ' s football supporters, " during the past year, to discover that the Red and White gridiron warriors had a team feared through- out the state. Why were they feared? Because they had a passing attack that was rated as being as good as any ever perfected by a high school team in grid- iron history. Our team possessed a line that held like a stone wall. The Manual warriors played against some of the strongest elevens in the state, losing five games and winning three. The climax of the season came with the final clash with Technical in which the Reds lost 15 to 7. Tech is now rated as State Champions. In this game Manual ' s aerial attack came up to everything that was expected of it. The perfect passing was feared by every eleven in the state, and Coach Ragsdale certainly has something to be proud of. The next team will be weakened by the loss of Higgs, star back, and one of the most prominent men in our aerial attack. House, Herbert, King, and Gilligan, who played well for our team, graduate this January. Those who saw a great deal of action this year are : Line: Kellermeyer, Harlan, Woerner, Rice, Prokel, Bredell, Henselmier, Em- ery, Risley, Wampner, Susemichal, Doepker, King, Miller, Hutton, and Kloepper. Backfield : Higgs, Harmeson, Martin, Peek, Whitehead, and Hunt. We sincerely hope the Red and White will have another successful season. BASKETBALL Our fighting basketball team under the watchful eye of Coach Roland H. Jones certainly are coming along in fine shape. These peppy redshirts certainly can hit the hoop. Playing against some strong opposition this year the able net snipers have won the majority of their games and are rated by many to be the strongest net quintet in the city. Coach Jones has under him a fine group of hoop-tossers, who with the utmost of Manual ' s famous sportsmanship, ability, and square deals to all opponents, have a fine chance for the city championship. Manual has clashed with some stiff opposition in this season, and have fallen before such teams as Bedford, but have romped to victory over such teams as Seymour. Both Tech and Shortridge have strong teams, but we expect the red-jerseyed teams to come out on the long end of a big score when they clash with both of these city teams. Manual bids fair to win the Sectional Tourney, and with such men as Mar- tin, Harmeson, Rubush, Rhodes, Woerner, Williams, Boswell, Brandt, Cruse, and the speedy Hap Marshall, we expect them to come across with some fine results ; and we are sure they will do so. We are placing our hopes for the most success- ful of successful season on Jones ' fighting quintet. Remember, boys, " We Can, We Must, and We Will, " win the Sectional. CLASS HISTORY (continued from page 15) November 17, 1925, brought about the election of Smiley Young as editor of the Senior Booster. Judging from Smiley ' s experience, he will make for future Manualites, a Senior Booster not to be equalled. November 23, 1925, the Ivy was planted to grow on Manual ' s walls with all due ceremony. The pageant was an unusual success and the class is to be con- gratulated upon the fine performance which was enjoyed by all. The class play, Jonathan Makes a Wish, presented on December 10 and 11 was a wonderful success. Thanks are due to the whole school, and especially to Miss Perkins and those who helped her. The Class Day program was very successful ; guided by Miss Brady, it could not have been otherwise. But alas, the end is drawing near. Rise up all ye Seniors and give to your followers the many gifts and privileges you have enjoyed. Inspire them to be as worthy of their names as you have been. Remember, " He conquers, who con- quers himself. " No one else in the world has so little choice concerning his destiny as a traveling salesman ; therefore imagine my delight when I learned that I was to go to Indianapolis to make the vacuum toothbrush famous. It had been ten years since I graduated from high school, and it had been that same ten years since I had seen the Monument. When I went out to the aeroplane landing, I was so glad to go I didn ' t make even my usual objection over the donning of the goggles. As I climbed into the aeroplane, I slipped and fell into the arms of a very husky young gentleman with cauliflower ears. As I begged his pardon, I looked closer, and lo and behold, it was Forrest Higgs. He was known the world over as One-Punch McGinty. His manners had not been neglected, how- ever, for he asked me to share his seat. We started to talk of high school days, and I learned some interesting things. He told me that Arthur Funston had a road show that was very successful because of its fine advertising manager, Horace Graver. The entire company was from Manual. Janet Stone was the Human Skeleton, while Helen Draper was the Snake Charmer. As Arthur ' s elephant had died, Mary Evans and Ruth Fechtman wore the skin of the poor animal to deceive the innocent public. The headliner of the show was the fancy dancing act by Frank Ballman. This seemed natural when I remembered it was he who had received the dancing prize in high school. The child wonder was Marjorie Coy. Forrest, or One-Punch I should say, had enjoyed the show immensely. I begged him to tell me more of himself; so he reported that the evening before he had won the World Championship from Gilbert Malone, who had taken up boxing for self-defense soon after he and Nellie Modlin were mar- ried. Nellie always looked gentle, too. By that time the plane had landed in Indianapolis. My baggage was seized by Joseph Thomas and Walter Brown while Claude Toliver took my crate of toothbrushes. I ordered the taxi driver, who happened to be Edward Spreen, to take me to the newest hotel. To my surprise it was owned by Al Smith, who had just resigned from the presidency of the National Bootleggers Union because Don Ballman, Chief of Police, was hot on his trail. The hotel was so beautiful that I asked who had furnished it and learned that Margaret Cornell had be- come the leading interior decorator. As I was very tired, I purchased a paper and went to my room. The headlines announced that the Prince of Wales had at last married an American girl. That girl was Esther Hilgemeier. I read on and discovered that Catherine Gill had turned green with envy ; and since green complexions were not in style, she had killed herself. After this sad news I could not read more, so I went down to dinner. There was a cabaret in con- nection with the hotel, and to my delight, Napoleon Richey and George Robinson had a feature dancing act. In their company I recognized Hazel and Mildred Waters, Hettie Coleman, Florence Artis and Mae Griffen. While the dancing had been in progress, I had entirely forgotten the waitress. That impatiently waiting girl was Edith Carey. She told me that Elizabeth Fish was char woman there. After dinner, being conscience stricken because I had not sold a toothbrush, I took my order book and started out. I entered the first drug store I came to. and who should smile at me over the counter but Leslie Brandt. From him I learned that Edna Lafkin had become Mrs. Brandt, and Wilbert Koch f was the owner of the drug store. Since Wilbert was not in, Leslie could not buy a toothbrush, so I wandered on. On the corner I paused to drop a coin into the cup of a blind man. To my horror I saw that man was Hurshell Marshall. " Why, Hap, " I cried, " Are you blind? " " No, " he replied, " I ' m deaf and dumb. " With a pitying glance I left this wreck of a high school boy whom I had once known, after extracting my coin from his cup. On West Washington street, I (Continued on Page 19.) SENIOR BOOSTER 19 found a department store still open, so hoping for a sale I entered. Who should greet me but Leroy Kohl, who was floor walker there. A man whom I recognized as James Hughes came in. I learned that he and Joe Jenkins owned the store and employed several old Manual grads. Jasper Hodge and Ophelia Lillard ran elevators. Dorothea Kluger and Dorothy Kunkle were models. Gertrude Meikie, Cornelia Packer, and Charlotte Neiman were clerks while Martha McCoy was a buyer. It seemed to be a good store because they bought a whole crate of toothbrushes. Just as I went out the door, a group of Salvation Army people passed by. In the crowd I recognized Miriam Wit whose ambition had been to bo a foreign missionary. Supposing they were going to have a meeting, I fol- lowed. My intuition was correct for on the corner they opened their meeting. While John Herrmann played on a little movable piano for Miriam to sing, I saw Lois Holiman, Irene Inman, and Doris Kays going through the crowd with tambourines. Forrest House was the preacher, but the whistle of Jimmie De- metrius ' peanut stand on the opposite corner nearly drowned him out. After the meeting I asked Miriam to come eat something with me. She accepted ; I suppose she was hungry, and from her I learned that Carl Brandt had gone to Utah to be a Mormon and had taken Ruth Allen, Martha Fogarty, and Helen Glezen with him. As Miriam left, I walked up to the Star office to insert an ad for helpers in my toothbrush campaign. Homer Zelner took my ad, and since I was a friend of the editor, Smiley Young, he didn ' t charge me a cent; so I gave him one of my vacuum toothbrushes. On the way back to the hotel I stopped to get my shoes shined and recognized Rudolph Gardner and Alphonso Horseley as proprietors of the shine stand. At the corner I paused before the Lentz Candy Shoppe. Since chocolates are my weakness, I entered and found Viola Heiny, Ruth McConville, and Elizabeth Miller all selling sweets for Enid Lentz. Rein- forced by the candy, I at last reached the hotel and went to bed. Next morning, at the unearthly hour of 5 :00 o ' clock the telephone rang. Muttering most unmaidenly phrases, I answered. It was some lady who had seen my ad, and she was desperate for a job. I asked her name and found it was my old chum Anne Levinsky. I gave her a job quickly to get back to my beauty sleep, but the fun had begun. When the phone wasn ' t ringing, someone was at the door wanting to sell toothbrushes. At the end of an hour I had hired Virgil Hebert, Frances Cohn, Sarah Alex, Mildred Arnold, and then very re- luctantly, out of pity, I hired Harry Benjamin. As I was eating breakfast, I heard a calliope in the street. It was adver- tising Mayor Edward Buddenbaum ' s speech at the Wint Burres Memorial Hall that night. The famous quartet composed of Dorothy Ernsting, Florence Haw- thorne, Nadine Peltier, and Luc ille Stuertz, was going to sing there, too. Just then a man came through the restaurant selling papers, whom I recognized as Robert Platte. I bought a paper and read that June Geisendorf, who had mar- ried the great actor, William Brewer, was suing for divorce because he was too temperamental. In the society notes I read that Lilly Burres and Anne Doherty had just returned from Europe. As I like movies, I turned to that section and found that Ruth Westmeier was starring in a picture while Augusta Zix played a character part. The picture was at a theatre owned by Louis Rosenthal and Abe Baker. It brought my heart joy to see how well my friends were doing, so I read on hoping to find more. I found too much. Ludwig Cocco was to be tried that morning by Judge Arthur Cleveland for robbing a bank owned by Albert Geis and Emery Fields. Th e chief witnesses were Molly Goldstein and Frieda Harmening. Remembering my school because of all these classmates, I decided to visit Manual. What a changed Manual ! Lucile Sterchi was in Mrs. Spiegel ' s place and under her were Lena Penish, Vivian Short, and Ruth Shanks. Mildred Poeh- ler taught gym. Mary Speer and Josephine Snyder taught commercial subjects. Herbert Stoner was taking Mr. Winslow ' s place while Leander King was the vice-principal. I decided to lunch at school, and as I wandered toward the lunch room, I met Alfred Menges. He told me that he and Wilbur Noll were watchmen and Sarah Yohler was manager of the lunch room. Serving the food I saw Martha Mason, and from her I learned that Lee Johnson and Edward Ward worked there. (Continued on Next Page) 20 SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS PLAY: " JONATHAN MAKES A WISH " Our class play, " Jonathan Makes a Wish, " presented December 10 and 11, was proclaimed by all who saw it, one of the best class plays ever given by a group of high school boys and girls. The play was written by Stuart Walker and presented in Indianapolis a year ago with huge success. When our class presented it, the acting of the entire cast was splendid and each character was especially suited to his part. The theme of the play was extremely interesting and true to life. The ex- perience of Jonathan was supposed to be the exact account of Stuart Walker ' s own life. Some of the difficult scenes were handled very admirably indeed. Ar- thur Funston ' s portrayal of Jonathan was a great success. Margaret Black, Miriam Wit and Albert Smith, the other leading members in the cast, supported Arthur Funston in fine style. Others in the cast were John Herman, Martha McCoy, Marjorie Coy, William Brewer, Frank Ballman, and James Demetrius. The stage hands under the direction of David Coller, moved everything like clockwork and the difficult lighting effects in the second act were hnadled splendidly by Smiley Young. Putitng all in all, the Senior Class put it over, and " put it over big. " PROPHECY (concluded from page 19) Just as I was ready to leave, I heard the fire chief ' s siren; and when I rushed to the door, I saw that the fire chief was none other than Harry West. The wagons came soon, and easily manipulating them were Ralph Spilker and Claude Stanford. The fire was just a block away in a clothing store owned by John Rugenstein. It was rumored that he started the fire for the insurance. Some of the frightened clerks were Florence Richardson, Marie Schlensker, and Isabelle Pleak. Falling timber struck Otto Leonhardt, a street cleaner, who had been watching the fire ; so someone called the ambulance. Soon the ambulance, ably guided by Eugene Howard, brought Dr. Harry King and his nurse, Sophia Kot. Poor Mr. Leonhardt was taken to the hospital. The excitement wasn ' t over though. The insurance agent, Carl Kistner, whom Mr. Rugenstein had sent for had arrived. He suspected a graft at once and sent for the president of his company and the police. Soon a carload of police came with Chief Don Ballman. I knew some of the cops from my school days — Gaylord Sweany, Oran Stanley, and Treasa Sullivan, the leading policewoman in the city. When the president of the insurance company, Mr. Ellsworth Boyce, arrived, he ordered the frightened Mr. Rugenstein sent to jail. He was saved though, for Louise Joseph of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, stepped out and put up the bail. Much relieved, I went back to the hotel. Mercy, the hubbub ! Someone pointed out to me the two Senators from Indiana. Who should they be but Paul Kahn and George Kahl. They had their secretaries, Miss Midkiff and Miss Lorene Higgs, with them. All were enroute to Washington, so I gave them vacuum toothbrushes to use on the train. From Anna Mae I learned that August Jensen and Frank Jones were Congressmen ! Mercy, I was proud. Just by chance I looked up on the balcony and saw William Martin and Edgar Miller up there making speeches. I went up to see what it was all about. One of the maids, Madge Younghans, told me they were active in a society, of which David Coller was president, that was trying to have the Volstead Act repealed in spite of the Anti-Luxuries club headed by Lena Fortney. Williard Gigerich, a confirmed millionaire bachelor, was backing Lena. At the close of the speech, George Gilli- gan and Paul Freund came around with pledges, swearing to kill Volstead or yourself. I was surprised to see Yetta Goldstein and Mildred King signing these cards. Excitement seemed to reign for just then I heard a crash in front of the hotel. As I was rushing out, some men entered carrying Cora Steirwalt. They said that two cars, driven by Helen Williams and Marie Wallman, had collided and then hit Cora. Mabel Vincent, a nurse, was in the crowd, so Cora was taken care of all right. Then Cora ' s maid, Martha Sweany, was sent for and peace was restored once more. After having Edna Stone marcel my hair and Beulah Tinder give me a manicure, I got a magazine from Mildred Summers, some candy from Estella Strauss and went to my room. Even though I had given away my toothbrushes, I was happy for I had either seen or heard of all my old school friends. Actors Here are the students who with the aid of Miss Perkins and others produced our unexcelled class play. Stage-hands These pupils, under the guidance of Mr. Finch, made possible the production of our class play. Basketball Manual ' s hopes for a sectional title lie in these boys, they are yours to be proud of. They are good, and Football These are the boys who perfected the best aerial attack in the state, and who made a good record last season. SENIOR BOOSTER 23 RECOLLECTIONS By J. SMILEY YOUNG MANUAL DAYS Slowly the doors of Manual Are swinging open wide, And soon we must pass through them To the big wide world outside. Fond fortune beckons to us And whispers tales of fame, But we pause upon the threshold To look back once again. We see ourselves as Freshmen With the usual pile of books; Little anxious faces With green and verdant looks. Hunting the elevator, And climbing the tower stairs. Or looking for a class-room We couldn ' t find " anywheres. " Yes, we were once small Freshies And burned the mid-night oil Cared not for girls or parties But filled our days with toil. And then, when we were Sophomores, We lost our love for books, And tried to be like Juniors And cared more for our looks. But when we were made Juniors, We lost our giddy ways And settled down to study And use the golden days. We ' d forgotten the joy of the Sopho- more, For passing the Freshie stage, And knew not the pride of the Senior, We were at the sensible age. But the year of the Junior was short, And when Seniors we became, The world took on new colors And nothing remained the same. We held our heads up higher And swaggered down the nail, Smiled wisely down on the Freshie, We hardly saw him at all. In our Senior year things happened And cases came thick and fast. We ' re afraid our little historian Has lost her heart at last. We ' ve had good times together And we love the old school so; The teachers and one another, That we just can ' t bear to go. Yet slowly the doors of Manual Are swinging open wide, And soon we must pass through them To the big wide world outside. Fond fortune beckons to us And whispers tales of fame, But we pause upon the threshold To look back once again. A PSALM OF CLASS BOOKS Tell me not in mournful numbers That I had an empty dream When I saw these boys with class- books, I know things are not what they seem. It is real, they ' re in earnest, So have them signed, it is their goal. If one comes to you, don ' t run; To sign it will fill his soul. With enjoyment not with sorrow, I expect that he will say; Thanks, thanks to you, now to- morrow I ' ll catch more than on today. School is short, time is fleeting, And their hearts are strong, to brave The jeering taunts of all their com- rades These memories to save. In the school ' s broad field of class books; In this, our Senior year, Nearly every girl will have one, While but three boys have them here. Then, you boys, be up and doing, Get a class-book, risk the fate One more week to get it signed, boys — Hurry, before it is too late. 24 SENIOR BOOSTER BLESSINGS Blessings on thee, little man, But when you think You ' ve cut enough Deportment cease!! Blessings on thee, little girl, With your face bepowdered well, May your whole life be as gay, As your blissful Freshman days. Blessings on thee, teachers of ours May the world give the best of flowers, You just think of your school day larks, When we fail to toe the mark. A TOAST TO OUR FRIEND Here ' s to our parting, unwillingly, Boys; Here ' s to the days when we really had joys; Never again can we such days find, As we spent in the school that we now leave behind. Higher than any the best one of all Manual, if you need us you know where to call. We ' ll back you in everything that you wish to do. So here ' s to our parting, but ere we go We ' ll plant good " On Manual " down deep in our soul, And following that motto we will strive for our goal. CLASS POEM I ain ' t going to cry no more, no more. I ' m ' ist so tired I ' ist had to bawl ' An Oran Stanley is so tall ' At I stretched my neck A tryin ' to see on which side he parted his hair. ' Nen it wasn ' t parted! IShdot the luck! But I ain ' t a goin ' to cry no more, no more. We all want on the honor roll, But we ' re afeard o ' bein ' jeered at For carryin ' books, and we are sceered That we might miss a real good time By stayin ' home a studyin ' , and never going out, But I ain ' t a goin ' to cry no more, no more. Smiley has willed everything we got to some one else, ' An the personals have told all about us, ' An Margaret has made of our future a muss, But Miss Knox jus ' let ' s ' em do it. Some of us is sensitive, too, Gol blame it! An ' it hurts our feelin ' s, it does, But I ain ' t a goin ' to cry no more, no more. There ' s a case between " Pug " Malone and Nellie Modlin. ' An they meet in the hall an ' just talk an ' talk. An ' Jim Demetrius goes aroun ' lookin ' like soured cream ' Cause soon he can ' t yell, But will have to keep still ' An ' act like other civilized folks, he will, But I ain ' t a goin ' to cry no more, no more. ' OO ' , I ' m ' ist heartsick, an ' P feel so bad I guess the whole Jan. ' 26 class is said; An ' I ' ist can ' t help but cry as can you believe it, Our own Emmerich Manual we soon must leave An ' I ' ist can ' t help but grieve an ' grieve, An ' oh, my oh, I ' m startin ' again, But I won ' t for sure; I ' ist ain ' t gonna cry no more.

Classmates you are going out into a great reservoir of Roman liberty. You are going to swing the flails of justice over this immense universe, in hydrau- lic majesty and congenial superfluity. You are the magnificent arch on which will evaporate the even scales of justice and numerical computation. You are to ascend the deep arcava of nature and dispose of world problems with equiponderating concatenation, in reference to the future velocity and reverberating momentum. Such are your sedative and stimulating characters. You are all people of domestic eccentricity and matrimonial configuration, not permitted, as many are, to walk in the primeval and lowest vales of society; but you must endure the red hot sun of the universe on the heights of nobility and feudal eminence. You will, no doubt, have beautiful husbands and wives of horti- cultural propensities who will hen-peck you till the rest of your days with soothing and bewitching verbosity. You will no doubt all have families of domestic children who will gather round you in your peaceful homicides in tumultitudinous consanquinty. Sometime, seated in the backyard beneath the shadowy shades of an umbrageous tree, you will gather round your wife or husband and your children. You will there take a restrospective view upon the diagram of futurity, and cast your eye like a flashing meteor forward into the past. Seated in their midst aggravated and exhaled by the dignity and independent coincident with honorable poverty your countenance irrigated with intense glows of self-deficiency and ex-communicated knowledge, you quietly turn to instruct your little assemblages. You will endeavor to distill into their minds useless lessons to guard their juvenile youths against immortality. There, on a clear sunny evening, when the silvery moon is shining forth in all her indulgence and ubiquity, you will teach them the first sediments of geometry, by pointing out to them the bear, the lion and many other fixed invisible consternations which are continually revolving in their bear- ings through the blue serulean fundamus above. From this vast ethereal you will live with them to the very bottom of the unfathomable oceans, bringing up from thence liquid treasures of earth and air. You will then be forever lost in the infinite radiation of your overwhelming geniuses. Au Revoir. THINGS WE ENVY Mr. McComb ' s ability to make ad- dresses. Mr. Sander ' s smile.

SENIOR BOOSTER 33 SENIOR SASSIETY A January Senior asking his favor- ite young lady to go sleigh-riding with him: " Will your notions of propriety admit of your entertaining an invita- tion emanating from me to indulge in the exhilarating pastime of being transported over the gleaming and compact crystalization of vaporous exhalation drawn by a quadruped of the equine species harnessed to a cold but perfect piece of mechan- ism? " Helen Draper — What is the correct translation of the motto on that lovely ring you gave me? Carl Brandt — Faithful to the last. Helen Draper — The last! How horrid! And you always told me that I was the first. Frank Ballman, our noted musi- cian, gave a recital at the Deaf and Dumb Institute, Friday night. The recital was a marked success. Sonny House performed some very mystifying tricks at the Blind Asylum recently. Margaret Cornell was the dignified chaperone of G. of A. dance Tuesday night. Otto Leonhardt rides an Edgewood bus every night. We don ' t know where he goes. It may be noted that " Pug " Malone is seen with Nellie Modlin quite often.
