I have been here Five years, but — I ' m a senior now! Some who know me Think I was born and reared at Manual, They say, " You are like the prairie, You were here before I came, You will be here when I am gone. " But really I haven ' t been here So very long Only five years; but What are five years — To a Manual student? I ' ve loved old Manual More and more, each one of these five years. Not because of its charming teachers — perhaps But for the big things it stands for, The Spirit it holds up. Have you ever been To one of the big athletic fetes With the Manual crowd Where its heroes fight To win or lose? There would be a sea Of eager faces on our side, And ribbons and mops fluttering red and white Hoarse throats, hoarse from cheering, Cheering to win or to lose. I used to think When I was a freshie How grand it must be To be a senior. But now I ' m not so sure — about the grandness. Folks, I hate to leave Manual! I ' d like to stay here five years more! But they ' re throwing me out; they say " We ' ve taught you all we know And you ' re still a dummy! " — Harnold Totton. Page Twenty SENIOR BOOSTER THE BOOSTER Published by The June 19 28.

For this support, both financially and otherwise, the staff of the June 1928 Senior Booster wishes to thank Class Memories Each member of the June 1928 graduating class has made his mark, whether high or low, dur- ing his four years sojourn here at Manual. Each has by this time decided the field of endeavor which he would most like to make the scene of his activities when he has finished his education. Some will go to college, others will continue their educa- tion in the hard school of experience in their chosen vocation. Memories of days spent at Manual will remain through these years of success or failure, and remembrances of the senior play, Class Day, Ivy Day, and other traditional senior functions will not fade as the years go by. Friendships made in the past four years will continue, and others will be renewed in the passing of time. Whatever the station we may attain, there will always be the free camaraderie that there has been at Manual. But of all the memories that will cling through the years, let the memory of our class motto, with its great truth and significance, be our guide in all our attainments. Let the motto be ringing in our ears long after other memories have been dimmed by Time, the great thief. Let our li ves and hopes be patterned after it. Let us " Kxve to So, " ot So to IGtur. " A Farewell Flight The June 1928 class is making its maiden flight into the world. Four years of preparation have been spent at Manual in order to insure this ven- ture being a success. We have not been unaided during this period of preparation. We have been guided, advised, and assisted in many ways by that loyal and true group — the faculty. In our journey through life we shall miss their friendly sympathy for our faults, and their interest and pleasure in our achievements. But most of all we shall miss the faithful assistance which they have freely offered for all our undertakings. Especially in our senior activities — the class play, the Senior Booster, Ivy Day, Class Day — they have endeavor- ed to make our senior year a success. Words alone cannot show all of our appreciation for their serv- ices. We can only hope to show a semblance of the gratitude we feel for those who have contributed in any way to make our senior year the last and best. Therefore it is with great sincerity that we address to the faculty our last message as Manual students. We, who are about to leave, salute you.

I see the rest of the senior class, waiting for me to drop the gifts which I have decided to distribute. Taking careful aim, I shall begin dropping the gifts into the crowd and shall endeavor to drop each one near the person for whom it is intended.

(Continued on Page 29) Page Twenty-two SENIOR BOOSTER June CLASS HISTORY Herman Kline 1928 (Being the facts and incidents of our trial ;An September 8, 1924, we first entered our plane, L I " Manual High " , to fly to the Land of Oppor- tunity. Our pilot, E. H. Kemper McComb ; gave us final instructions, and we seated ourselves for the first leg of the flight. Being inexperienced, we made a somewhat perilous take-off, but man- aged to right ourselves after a short time. Each pilot-student was given the privilege of choosing his own post on the plane. After two months of fast flying, we first sighted the ground of Illiter- acy. Flying low, we noticed a slothful, ignorant type of people, whose cities were dirty. No pro- gress was apparent. They moved and lived as though in total darkness. We shuddered to imagine a life of this kind. While passing over the lateral region of this kingdom, we suddenly became pos- sessed with an indescribable feeling. Our altitude and longtitude were uncertain; we could not steer the ship with equilibrium. It was noticeable that the crew was not trained for such a trip. After consulting the Chief-pilot McComb, we were forced to return. On September 8, 1925, when all was ready, we changed posts and signaled our intentions of be- ginning a similar flight to the Land of Opportun- ity. Our path this time took us over the Land of Failure. The inhabitants of this land were a dreamy, haggard, and indifferent race. Their land was mostly rocky and hilly, and no cultivation could be seen. But even though the land was in such a dilapidated state, it seemed to hold en- trancing music of some sort. We were always on the verge of descending to the Land of Failure; only the warnings of our pilot and the utmost will- power on our part saved us. We flew a straight course, but the length of that nation was great, and we soon became perturbed over our failure to over- ride it. Our flying experience so far was not to be boasted of, and Pilot McComb, sensing this, gave the orders to return. Our third attempt was inaugurated on Septem- ber 7, 1926, over the marshy land of Unprepared- ness. Our course was duly laid out and our take- off made with great success. Our spirits were high on this trip, for often the crew would lustily sing the chorus of " Onward Manual " . When almost in the center of the Land of Unpreparedness, we suddenly encountered high-powered winds, which we later learned the people of that land called " Marks " . Hitherto our natural enemies had done us little damage; but now as we were nearing the and final flight to the Land of Opportunity.) final stages of our flight, the enemies ' powers be- came more dominant. Some of our men became unseated, but the greater number of them only seemed to tighten their holds on their positions. Pandemonium reigned for a few minutes. A quick decision was necessary, and because of the loose co- operation now among the men we were for a third time required to back-track our flight. On September 7, 1927, as we were now de- termined to try a fourth flight, we gathered again. To leave no problems facing us we held a consulta- tion and elected Parvin Hagan to pilot us; Jean Davidson was asked to become his assistant; while Marie Truitt was required to take data on the flight. Blanchard Smith became a second Hamilton of the crew and saw to the financial side of the project. We chose jade green as the proper color for our plane, and a lovely banner, designed by Albert Loo, was chosen on December 14. When asked what kind of floral decorations we wanted if we landed in the Land of Opportunity, we chose the American Beauty rose. Over one-half of the flight was covered before we found it necessary to change the different posts again. This time Parvin Hagan was again selected to steer the plane, while George May became his able assistant. Jean Davidson took over the work of Marie Truitt, and Richard W T itte became possessor of all the valuables of the crew. On March 6 we elected Lawrence Laughlin to act as giftorian. Katherine Kelly was called upon to prophesy the remainder of our flight and the future of each member of the crew. Carl Burris became our willmaker and contrived, with a lawyer ' s instinct, to make our last will and testament. Herman Klinge was requested to en- liven the universal populace as to the history of the flight. It was also necessary that we should have some kind of motto to signify our intentions of such a trip as this; so on March 6, we chose " Live to do, not do to live. " Storms again hindered but did not stop us. Everything ran in co-ordination. On April 19 we sighted the outskirts of the Land of Opportunity. We landed and were taken to the King ' s Palace, where we were introduced to the " Little Princess " . She was very charming and was greatly approved of by our men as well as by the populace of that country. On May 11 we left the King ' s Palace and flew to Ivy Day Field, in the midst of the Land of Opportunity. We were met by Mrs. Bing, who saw to our comfort and care. (Continued on Page 23) SENIOR BOOSTER Page Twenty-three A June CLASS WILL Carl Burris 1928 7 " he Senior Class has for some time been I making preparations for a flight that will - either mean success or failure. Therefore, we realize that there is a possibility that Manual Training High School may lose the most brilliant class that has ever passed through her historic halls. Although the class feels there is slight danger of said flight being a failure, certain faculty mem- bers are more dubious of the outcome, and have insisted we make preparations for our will. We feel with happy certainty that the hour for taking off is close at hand. I. We hereby appoint and charge Richard Witte, the lawful caretaker of our funds, to faith- fully pay our numerous bills and settle all accounts of our departing class from the surplus treasury we have left. II. To the members of our beloved faculty, who look upon our leaving with smiles of joy, we be- queath the satisfaction that comes from duties well performed. We also leave them a January class — that has possibilities. III. To the January class, as our rightful and worthy successors we leave: A. Our seats — occupy them, but do not try to fill them — that is impossible. B. Our tendency to make a little knowledge go a long way in the classroom; also our ability to throw faculty members off the trail when they imagined we were bluffing. C. Our honored positions as models for the school — models of wit, wisdom, charm of manner, physical development, and intel- lectual expansion. May heaven help you to stand up under the strain. I). Lastly, that which gives us much sorrow to part with — our strongly entrenched places in the hearts of the faculty who have loved us devotedly — we understand that it would have been impossible for them to have done otherwise. IV. The following valuable bequests are fully and freely given: A. To Mr. McComb, the unfailing good will of our class: we feel certain that this will be essential in dealing with future seniors. B. To future class presidents, Parvin Hagan ' s ability to preside at senior meetings with dignity that would do honor to a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. C. To Wilbur Becker, Art Hartson leaves his power of fascination — Art says he has a steady now and doesn ' t need any further power. D. To Marie McCool, Jean Davidson leaves her ability to be an ideal leading lady. E. To all students who are pessimistic, we leave Mr. Ankenbrock ' s optimism — he re- cently bought some hair grower, a brush, and a comb. F. To whomsoever lays first claim, we leave Mare Oliver ' s complexion. G. Marie Truitt leaves the magnetic power of her eyes to any January 1929 girl who wishes to be successful in hypnotizing the keeper of the January 1929 class funds. She found this hypnotic power brought the desired results. H. James Swartz, the logical successor to John Barrymore, leaves his success in playing the part of the " big butter and eggs man " to Robert Tilford. We do hereby constitute and appoint our prin- cipal Mr. McComb sole executor of this last will and testament. In witness whereof, we attach the signatures of the June class of 1928. Class History (Continued from Page 22) When we landed, we were immediately besieged by a number of cameramen; from among them we chose the National. Edward Throm, editor-in-chief of the King ' s paper, called the Booster, was in- troduced to us. He made it a point to get facts about the life of everyone of us in order that he might publish them in the next issue of his paper. We were feted in this land for some time, and then a few of our crew flew on to the Land of Success. Others who had become so infatuated with the music of the Land of Failure flew back to that land. It was noticeable among the crew that not a single one was idle, but each one found himself a duty and performed it to the best of his ability, letting himself be guided by " Live to do, not do to live. ' ' Tom, Tom, the piper ' s son, Stole a car that wouldn ' t run. The engine ' s knocks Were heard for blocks, So now Tom ' s making little rocks. Page Twenty-four SENIOR BOOSTER " The Little Princess " Technical Staff Cy Vith the production of the " Little Princess " I I I another success has been added to the fame - already earned by the June 1928 seniors. As we bid old Manual goodbye, we feel we leave an excellent example and inspiration for future classes. May their success be as great as that of the " Little Princess. " That the " Little Princess " was a huge success is well known and half of the praise is due the technical staff which worked with the regular cast in making the class play a production worthy to be considered among the best. Mr. Finch coached the cast behind scenes, and these actors rehearsed and slaved equally as hard as the cast before the scenes. Properties had to be in their own specific places; lights had to be turned on and off at given times; scenes had to be changed as noiselessly and as quickly as possible. When we consider that it is a task to build a house in several months, we will more fully ap- preciate the accomplishments made by the boys and girls who built the interior of a Young Ladies Seminary and prepared it for a party — all in five minutes. Then, it was necessary to tear down the Seminary parlor and put in its place a dingy attic. Snow had to be provided to make you " feel " the situation; the lights had to be regulated to corre- spond with the actions of the performers. We are ready and willing to thank these helpers who slaved in dust and dirt, who worked in a quick systematic manner, who helped make the " Little Princess " a success.

Bur- S nett, and was presented April 19th and 20th. Four weeks before this, hair-raising try-outs had been staged by timid girls and bashful boys. After anxious hours the result of the finals were an- nounced, and work stared the few in the face. Gladly were rehearsals attended; bravely did we accept reproof and endeavor to please. Thanks to the untiring efforts of Miss Lola Perkins, our coach, and Miss Harloff, her assistant, the " Little Princess " was given by an all star cast. " The Little Princess " is the story of a rich little girl who, through financial reverses at the death of her father, is forced to become a charity boarder at the girls ' school she is attending. By a co- incidence, her money is returned to her by a friend of her father ' s. A happy ending is inevitable. The first act is staged in the parlor of Miss Minchin ' s " Young Ladies Seminary " . Sarah is giving a school party. During this act, Sarah learns of the death of her father and the loss of her fortune. Miss Minchin commands Sarah to sleep in the garret and work for her board. The second act is a garret scene, showing the wretchedness of Sarah ' s surroundings. The touch- ing incidents of her life bring tears into the eyes. The third act, is staged in the home of Mr. Carrisford, her father ' s friend. He has been en- deavoring to locate the daughter of his deceased friend, but his efforts have hereto ore been un- successful. Her real identity is revealed, and the finis is a happy one.

Uppermost in my mind was the pledge that we made, and that I was now on my way to fulfill, that the reunion of our class would be held in 1938 in Manual ' s Stadium. We pledged to be present in person or our regrets should be sent: to our president, Parvin Hagan. I had previously been informed that Manual had acquired the land adjoining the stadium which was now being used for an airport, under the super- vision of John Maupin and Horace Settle. The study of aeronautics had long since been added to the curriculum of the school. Frank Olshan, Ruben Riskin, and Thomas Zimmerman had become ex- pert fliers, and were now skilled professors of this subject. There is an end to everything, and so there was to my journey. After circling the field several times I finally valplaned and taxied up to the landing tee, there to find in charge two capable officers: Edward Simmons and Carl Stoycheff. These men had their hands full, parking planes for those who had arrived ahead of me. There I was in the midst of all my classmates once again. How delightful it was to meet and greet those who had come! Soon the sound of the gavel summoned us in and Parvin Hagan asked us all to be seated. Par- vin was now the president of the Sinclair Oil Com- pany having aided in cleaning up the oil scandal. After the secretary, Jean Davidson, had read the report and called the roll, Ruth Thompson, who was chairman of the program committee consist- ing of Irene Singer, Mildred Schultz, Lena Sandler, and Roberta Craven, announced that a few of our former classmates had been asked to speak to us. The first speaker was Dick Witte. Dick had proved himself such a competent handler of shek- els, immune from bribery, that the city of Indian- apolis had elected him treasurer. He was running for re-election and he asked the support of the class. As he talked, Arthur Bruhn, Max Albrecht, and Roscoe Harris were busily passing out large cards showing the smiling countenance of Dick. Dick also told us he favored Manual students, especially 1928 graduates, and he had in his office Dorothy Vaughn, Jessie Unger, and Loma Swickheimer. He had even given Abe Miller a position as porter, because Abe ' s wife, Sarah Klausner, threatened to leave him if he didn ' t work. Sarah Goldstein, the noted welfare worker, then talked to us about the interesting work of her staff. So pathetic were her stories that we were moved to tears. Clara Montgomery, Esther Myers, and Irma Klinefelter, who were testing their sales- manship ability, immediately arose to the occasion and began selling red and white kerchiefs. Among those buying were Grace Hoffman, Kathleen Snyder, Lois Hornocker, and Frank Henzie. All were employed by the Eat-A-Bite-Of-Candy Cor- poration owned by Joe Calderon. Robert Stiegel- meyer who was known to be the city ' s richest miser wept so loudly that he had to be removed. He was escorted out by Sol Gernstein, the chief of police of this city. Sarah then asked that a com- mittee be appointed to raise funds for relief work. Dorothea Carrel, Inez Coogan, Helen Collins, and Elizabeth Jones (frivolous mannequins of the Frank Olshan Petite Shop) were so touched by Sarah ' s stories that they offered life service to her cause. How noble! True Manualites! We were entertained next by the famous im- personator, Marie Oliver. Hardly had she began her first sketch, when the audience was in an up- roar. One could not help but recognize the world renouned comedian, Edward Throm. Her next im- personation was of the American danseuse, Violet Isley, who had succeeded Gilda Gray. We were very proud to listen now to the famous prima donna, Margaret Kline. Her selections from the latest hit, " Mary Flappers " , written by the playwright, Ward Storm, were very beautiful. She was accompanied by the pianist, Anna Marie Sander. The last speech was made by President Parvin Hagan. He expressed satisfaction in seeing so many members who were able to keep their pledge, but said that he wished to tell us of some of our absent members. At this time he read the telegrams which were brought by Harold Slagel, who had become chief telegraph boy of the Rieman Telegraph Company. The first telegram was from Nina Baas, the tal- ented pianist, who was in New York fulfilling her contract. The next was from Dick Fogarty who was man- ager of the New York Giants. Dick telegraphed that his team was now only one game out of first place, and for this reason he could not possibly attend. He also asked that Pitcher Emil Sam and SENIOR BOOSTER Page Twenty-seven Shortstop Paul Whittaker be excused for the same reason. A hearty cheer was given for Dick and his team. The yell was led by " Shorty " May who was now professor in the School of Art of Leading Yells in Boston, Massachusetts. Another telegram read: " I have just opened my nineteenth ' Hoggly Woggly ' store in Atlanta, Georgia. Shall see you in 1948 " , Arthur Hartson. The next was from the twins, Harry and Louis Kollinger, who informed us of their trans-Pacific flight beginning the morning of the reunion. Parvin then announced that the musical comedy " Dolly Blondes " , with Annabelle Fischer as lead- ing lady, was running after season in London, at the Safrin Theatre. Other blonds in the cast were: Margaret Stoiber, Ruth Cassidy, and Dorothea Meyer. The leading man was none other than Herbert Burnett, who had replaced Teddy Joyce as " The Man Blondes Prefer " . Parvin also told us that Jean Davidson, Hazel Carter, Wayne Farmer, and Homer Dupree, with Robert Bernd as chief announcer, would be the main features of the million dollar radio program to be broadcast tonight at 8 o ' clock from the Tot- ten Hotel. Harnold had begun as elevator boy, but had now reached the height of his profession. Parvin then turned the meeting over to our popu- lar and beloved sponsor, Miss Knox, who gave the invitation to hold our next convention in 1948. Order gave way to gayety, and thus the social hour began. What a commotion! Everybody talked at once. There were Katherine Kozakiewicz and Alice Johnson! How glad I was to see them. Katherine said that she had accepted a position in a famous Act Well College as professor of Techni- que. Betty Zintel, she said, was dean of women at Butler University. Betty was nearby talking to Helen Thompson. Alice said she had at last become a gym teacher and was now on the faculty of Manual and was being assisted by her old friend, Doroth y Rape. " Have you seen Nadine Barnes? " said Alice. On seeing us, Xadine rushed pell-mell toward us. She was dressed very becomingly, and I realized that last Sunday ' s Woman ' s Page had truthfully named her Indianapolis ' Best Dressed Woman. Her husband, James Gilbreath, was judge of the Supreme Court. " I don ' t know where he is, " said Nadine. " Last time I saw him he was talking to Ruby Lyster, to whom he gave a divorce a few days ago from Harry Meikle. He ' ll do anything for Manual students, even give them divorces. " Then I met Margaret Bollinger. She had invited me to spend the week-end with her and Whaunita Beach, who shared an apartment in the Totten Hotel. Late in the afternoon, we left the stadium where we had greeted many of our old friends, but it was all a jumble to me. After my long flight and my strenuous but happy afternoon I was very tired. The suggestion of dinner was welcome. We rode to Margaret ' s apartment in a taxi driven by Everett Patrick. He was a very gentle driver (Only one of its kind in existence, but even at that my hat was slightly crooked when we reached the hotel). A stately doorman rigidly opened the door for us. The fellow looked familiar. Who was it? Wayne Nelson. My goodness! The dignity the fellow had attained! He said that he had been president of the College for Butlers, but when Harnold Totten had asked him to recommend a dignified doorman, he had accepted the position himself because the uniform going with the position was so attractive. Harry Zaiser and Ezra Stewart, who were graduates of his school, were also serving as butlers. Edward Hansen was a butler in the home of Governor Bill Mendell of Ohio. Bill had married Eileen Snapp after becoming governor. He had run for the office in Indiana, but he had to go to Ohio to be elected. After this chat Maxine Vehling, a snappy little bell-girl, showed us up- stairs. What a darling apartment I found! It was as cozy as a " bug-in-a-rug " . Margaret turned on the radio. The voice I heard sounded vaguely familiar. As soon as I heard " It won ' t be long now " I knew it was Herman Klinge. What was this? Soon I heard Charles Whitehead, the announcer, say: " You have just heard ' The Poultry and Egg Man of Kansas, Nebraska ' speaking. Goodnight for the evening. " But then dinner was ready. The manager of the dining room was none other than Alfred Ehlers. He confidentially told me that the head-chef was Delbert Mather. After dinner we hurried to the theatre. On the way we saw Zetta McNorton selling daisies. After buying a bunch we nearly collided with " Lofty " Laughlin who sai d he was hurrying to a business conference of the Lofty Elevator Company, of which he was president. The heights gained were ninety-two floors. His demonstrator elevator girls were: Carolyn Lanham, Edith Gorenstein, Mary Gritton, Dorothy Gray, and Estella Plummer. Finally we arrived at the theatre. We entered the stage en- trance at the theatre and presented the " comps " that Annabelle had sent to Margaret. The door- man was very gruff and said that our comps were " no good " . We explained in verbose language that the " Star " had sent them to us. He grinned, and we recognized Roy Gift. " Well, Katherine, surely you can see Annabelle! " Safe in Annabelle ' s room after meeting Elmer Lyzott and Irving Lieness, electricians, we met Annabelle ' s husband, Blanchard Smith, who was founder of the school for struggling violinists. Some of his graduates who had gained renown were: Margaret Marker, Alma Newman, and Mar- garet Hamel. But then it was time for the performance to begin. Louis Finegold, an usher, then showed us to our box which we shared with Fred Fechtman, the well-known lawyer. He was entertaining some of the women who had served on the jury of the last case he had won. I recognized Evelyn Evans, Frieda Draeger, and Ina Cornell, the radical women leaders of America. In the chorus there {Continued on Page 39) Page Twenty-eight SENIOR BOOSTER wt has been planted — it is taking root — grasp- M ing — reaching out, the Ivy Vine of June 1928 class. Do you remember the fantasy por- traying its growth, its trials, and joys as given in the Ivy Day sketch? After Parvin Hagan present- ed this tendril as a symbol of our class spirit to Mr. McComb, the presenta tion of the trowel to Arthur Braun, president of the class of January 1929, the program of the Ivy was staged. Mortimer Present as the poet, unfolded to four seniors, Marie Oliver, Margaret Bollinger, Carl Burris, and Ward Storm, the fantasy of the Ivy ' s emotions. The dancers then portrayed the poet ' s dream. The Ivy of the June 1928 class was further im- mortalized in the beautiful words of the class poem written by Esther Roth, and in the symbolic clefts of our Ivy Day song by Margaret Kline. May our Ivy always symbolize the strong and steady growth of the wonderful class of June 1928. Ivy Day Song (Tune of Auld Lang Sync) O Ivy Vine, we leave you here For auld lang syne, Our class ' s memory to keep Undimmed by passing time. Chorus For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne, We plant this Ivy here today F or auld lang syne. Be thou the symbol of our class Enduring, steadfast, true, " We live to do, not do to live, " Uphold our motto, too. O Ivy Vine, we pray that in Thy fresh, green, clinging leaves Our memories will live for e ' er, Our thoughts to Manual cleave. {Words by Margaret Kline). Out Manual ' s Worth Our thoughts are held in loving thrall To Manual ' s fair and honored hall, Whose ivied towers of slender grace, Have made for birds a dwelling place. Whose bells of silver thrill the air And set the hours to music rare, A song that ever, as years depart, Shall ring again in each fond heart. Dear old Manual ' s faculty all Have seen us grow both straight and tall Grace learning ' s paths, from June to June With Labor ' s fruits are richly strewn While seasons change from green to white And day gives place to starlit night; The Flame of Faith, the Torch of Truth Shall ever guide the steps of Vouth. It is here we ' re learned from day to day A scholar ' s books and a minstrel ' s lay, Within these walls we ' ve pondered o ' er The priceless pearls of gathered lore; But the best of Wisdom ' s honors fair — The prize of all beyond compare — Is the loyal friendship ' s flower divine That bides in Memory ' s fragrant shrine. —Esther Roth. Lest We Forget Class Motto Live to do, not do to live. Class Flower American Beauty Rose. Class Color Jade Green. SENIOR BOOSTER Page Twenty-nine June | SENIOR ATHLETES Richard Foqartij A 1928 £y hen " Old Father Time " started out on his III rounds in the year 1924, a large bundle tied to the end of a parachute rested in the cockpit of his plane, " The Spirit of American Youth " . As the month of September rolled around, he dropped this package which contained twelve stellar athletes, and it landed just in front of the door of Emmerich Manual Training High School. The first prize package that popped out of this bundle was a youngster by the name of Lawrence Laughlin. Laughlin made his first varsity team last spring under track coach, Raymond Anken- brock. " Lofty " made good in football as the var- sity quarterback. When basketball season rolled around, " Lofty " again proved his worth. He played doggedly until he had developed into one of the best floor guards in the local schools. This spring Laughlin has been a valuable third baseman. He was made captain and justified Coach Skinner ' s confidence in him. Outside of being a good athlete, Lawrence has proved to be a good fellow in every way. Carl Burris was the next important athlete. Bur- ns played basketball for four seasons, and also strengthened the track team by his presence. With his ever ready smile, Carl has grown to be probably the most popular athlete in the class. He was cap- tain of the basketball team this year and held it together through a hard season. He led it to vic- tory in the two most important games of the sea- son — those with Shortridge and Washington. Running for four years on the Willard Park cinder path with the colors of Manual across his chest, " Herb " Burnett won a sweater and block M and lead the tracksters of this class. " Herbie ' s " good nature has " put him over " on the cinder track. After steering past scholastic work with great gusto, " Little Paulie " Whittaker decided to try his hand at basketball. He made the first team and alternated with Bruhn at the pivot position. In addition, he played faultlessly at first base for the " Fightin " Skinnermen ' ' this year. George (Shorty) May led the football team of 1926 at quarterback, and he made the varsity base- ball team as a third baseman in 1927. Because of ineligibility, George was forced to stay on the sidelines this year, but he refused to remain idle. Shorty developed into a yell leader, and undoubted- ly, he is the most popular leader we can remember. Harold (Tiny) Slagle is the next class athlete that catches our attention. " Tiny " played at half back during the football season of 1926, and then turned his attention to the cinder path where he made good. After serving faithfully on the scrub basketball team for three years, " Little Artie " Bruhn finally developed into a scrappin ' varsity center. " Art " also tried his hand at baseball, and Coach Skinner made him a catcher. Bruhn may be the " Silent Hoosier " , but he certainly showed lots of fight on the basketball floor for the Red and White last year. Charles Whitehead played his usual hard game at guard with the football squad of last season. Charlie carried the brunt of the punting last year, and did a commendable job of it. Albert Loo, Coach Moffat ' s star, has been the mainstay of the Manual tennis team for several seasons. " Al " plays a mean brand of ball. He seemed to be the only man who could win a singles match for Coach Moffat, and is still undefeated by any school competition. Despite a handicap in size, Abe Miller played through four years of football, and showed himself to be one of the most hard fighting wearers of the Red and White moleskins. Abe played guard, and did a healthy job of it. Arthur Hartson displayed his pride in the Red and White by playing four years of basketball for E. M. T. H. S., and succeeded in making the var- sity in his senior year. Art didn ' t set the world on fire, but kept plugging along. Deciding that he might use his genius on the diamond for Manual, Frank Henzie reported for baseball this spring, and showed his ability by making the grade as one of the varsity outfielders. Frank helped materially with the winning of sev- eral games. Class Gifts (Continued from Page 21) To Joe Miller we give the position of being our Laughing Hyena. To Marie Oliver we give a patent on making faces. To Elvera Merkle we give a loud speaker. To Charles Whitehead we give the title of being hard as nails. To everyone else in the class we give a Stutz roadster, a $10,000 job, and the bungalow of his dreams.

Ruth Adolay made a petite French maid. Between the acts we saw Esther Roth and Fran- ces Ray who were masters in a famous beauty school. Ethel Phillips, the writer, was also there with Irma Schakel, the poetess. After the show we met Carl Burris and Robert Ahlders now coaches at Vale and Dartmouth, and who then took us to supper at Carl Brenner ' s inn. A well-known girls ' jazz orchestra was engaged for that week, Carl told us. To our surprise we found the orchestra composed of former class- mates. The director was Maida Jupin who knew how to " sling a wicked baton " . Lillian Nett and Ruth Wagener brought tantalizing music fron " Twin Saxs " . Esther Neesen and Dommarie Har- ris played the cornets, while Irene Lucas played the banjo. Gladys Herr was the " drummerist " , while Frances Wallace tickled the ivories with no mean skill, and Lucille Wall sang a dreamy waltz ballad A special number was a dance by Amelia Eade and Genial Dean, famous Ziegfeld Follies dancers On our way back to the apartment we saw Joe Miller flipping flap-jacks in Trent Michael ' s res- taurant. He had attained a high degree of skill, missing only about five out of ten. A newsboy shouted at us in a deafening manner. By his scream we recognized Harold Cappel. The head line stated that the portrait of Lillian Kluger, who had been chosen Miss Indianapolis last month, and which was painted by Mildred Kord had won the national portrait contest. How wonderful! The same article stated that with her prize money Mildred would join Harriet Krause who had gone abroad for study. They intended making their home with Josephine Vinci, who was living in a beautiful villa near Naples. Josephine had been studying voice. from Page 27) After we reached the apartment we read Amelia Rose ' s latest novel and talked. News from Con- gress stated that Enid Dick, Elizabeth Radcliffe. Edna Pavy, and Kathleen Spear had made speeches in the House concerning the families of down-trod- den miners. Senator Oliver Blake was making vig- orous protest to the measures adopted by the women. On the editor ' s page we found articles by George Gerdts, who had become editor of the Indianapolis News. Elizabeth Sommer was the society editor, while John Kretler handled the sports very successfully. The question and answer column was edited by Florence Stegemiller, who had been named Miss Information. Margaret and I then talked of the wonderful success our class- mates had attained. But what had become of Marie Truitt and Norma White? They were the most popular magazine cover girls in all Green- wich Village, Margaret told me. And Louise Mayer? Oh, she had retired after donating a building for unnerved gym teachers. Some of the wrecked specimens were Ruby Dunham, Marceta Dukes, Mildred Mathes, and Virginia Burke. Ruth Oertel was to be the next. And Albert Loo, what has become of him? Oh, he has just given one million dollars for the building of a new Manual. He also left several of his paintings for the school ' s art gallery, and that was all. I gave a sigh as I thought of my weary flight back to Montreal in the morning. But the happi- ness of seeing my classmates had afforded me was well worth the trip. I had found them successful in life. They were all busy and happy, each in his own work. They had chosen well their different vocation, and though some showed not the mark of success they remained faithful and staunch to the code — that code taught them at old Manual — " Live to do, not do to live. " " Have you any thumb tacks? " " No, but I have some fingernails. ' He ' s so dumb that he thinks that a criminal offense is a new kind of football formation. Give a man enough rope and he ' ll start a cigar factorv. Feminine version: If the shoe fits, wear a size smaller. She ' s a perfect photograph of her father. " " And a pretty good phonograph of her mother. Women are just like flowers — when they fade they dye. If it really is love that makes the world go round, we cannot figure out why the earth runs so smoothly. No, my boy, we can ' t all be Lindberghs — just think what a mess the telephone directory would be! " Say could you tell me how I can find the Chemistry room? " " Sure. Ask somebody. " " Is that water warm? " " It ought to be: it has been running half an hour. " " Say dar, Sam, what kind of cigarettes yo-all smokin ' now? " " Baseball cigarettes, Small Change. " " How come baseball cigarettes? " " Grounders, boy, grounders. " Page Forty SENIOR BOOSTER A June AUTOGRAPHS 1928 7, .

Lola Johnson: You wouldn ' t think it, but she gets pen- alized for talking too much in Civics class. Was on the committee that chose the class play. Masoma. Jrma Kattau: Irma likes sauer kraut. Wonder why? Maid in our class play, not an " old " maid. Friend of Irene Hughes. Will race against Pavo Xurmi some day. Elizabeth Kahl: Will challenge anyone to run a race with her down Meridian street. She has practiced every day on her way back to salesmanship from town and is in good trim. SENIOR BOOSTER Page Nine Bcmita Killion: One of the University Heights girls and a chum of Mary Ellen. Even though Bernita is here only a short time during the day, she has made many acquain- tances in the school. Frank Kocnig: Speed man of Machine Shop II. Favor- ite occupation — lighting matches in his pockets. Bertha hammers: She sure is ambitious, she goes to Indiana Central and Manual Training at the same time. Everett Landers: Miss Wentz ' s trig. star. No kiddin Full of pep. Member of Hagan, Landers Co. Favor- ite occupation — knocking books out of friends ' hands. Lillian Lenowitz: Friend of Mollie Saphire. These two girls put on a novelty dance for the Ivy day program which was very good. Can match fists with any boy in school. Intends to be an old maid. Rose Levin: Deals out compliments just like nobody. Lovely personality. Has plenty of gray matter. Helen Ludgin: " Benny " . No relation to " Benny ' s Notebook " . Her famous saying is " Give me freedom from bookkeeping, or give me death. " She will be a commercial artist. Ernest McElroy: A very quiet person until he gets with that old gang. The owner of Joseph ' s sweater of many colors. Sophie Marks: Says that she ' d certainly take a chance on a hope chest, but not on an old maid ' s quilt. As " Julia ' , in the class play she received many fine wedding presents. Maybe that is an indication that she ' ll win the hope chest. Isabel Martin: Although little Isabel has been with us but a short time, she has won a place in the hearts of many by her good comradeship, her cheerfulness, and her spirit of fun. Page Ten SENIOR BOOSTER Virginia Martindale: Almost every person at Manual sees her every day, for she is stationed behind the candy counter in the lunch room. She was considered reliable enough even for that tempting position. Helen Metzler: " Sallie McBride " in our class play. Another reason why the class play was such a success. She doesn ' t like a mustache. Has a monopoly on dimples. Everett Moore: The ideal drug store cowboy. Former R. O. T. C. non-com. officer. Can walk away with busi- ness law. Marcia Mooreman: Marcia is a wicked driver of a rickety old Ford. She worked as a playground instructor last summer. Athena Naum: A very quiet little girl and a great friend of Ruth Spreen. Sometimes called " Tiny " . We are sure she will make an efficient secretary for some one. Frank Otte: One of the select few who drives his own car, and it isn ' t a Ford either. Reliable authorities say it ' s a Buick. Josephine Pearcy: She belongs to the Girls Glee Club. She is known among some people as Jo. Rudolf Pfister: Perpetual motion machine inventor. Close rival to Edison. Works in the Science Department. Ruth Pritchard: One of our basketball girls. She aids in all athletic contests with her presence and cheers. Fred Resner: He ' s the future Prince of Wales. Fritz has been seen riding in his Ford around here. Roines. SENIOR BOOSTER Page Eleven Armon Ries: His ambition is to go to Purdue to study electrical engineering. He looks rather sleepy all the time, but I wonder — is he? Roines. Mildred Rogers: Quiet little blonde. Never hear much about her. Had a great deal of trouble with her nose in the class play. Barney Rollings: Miss Moore ' s champion gum-chewer. Member of the Gas House crowd. His name is not " Google " . Mildred Roth: Seventh period lunch is the bane of her life. Has plenty of leisure except when on the way to the lunch room. Has a very cheerful disposition. Celia Rothstein: Small but mighty. If you don ' t agree you ought to hear her play the violin in the Senior orchestra. Anna Sajrin: A good student, quiet and earnest, who can be depended upon to finish the task assigned. Molly Saphire: As radiant as her name. She certainly did dance well on Ivy day. Girls ' Glee Club. Frank Schooler: The fellow with machine shop knowl- edge. Likes to watch the girls pass by the shop window. George Sc hut tier: He will probably answer to the name of " Buster " . He might do some great works some day translating English to Spanish. Jack Sclig: Will take his royal highness, the Prince of Wales ' place in the world of fashion. A business man of no mean ability. Known as the big bean man from Lima. . Page Twelve SENIOR BOOSTER Elmer Sponsel: One of Manual ' s half pints. The boy with a wicked walk. Ruth S preen: Never runs out of breath. Better known as Bill. Did she ever get to school on time? Louise Star key: An authority on sandwiches, especially barbecue. Wonder if the practice she has received in making sandwiches enables her fingers to be so swift in typewriting and shorthand? Athena Starr: Even her name is a reminder that she is a star. She certainly knows how to play the piano. Mable Tate: Some people believe she has a twin. Has she or hasn ' t she? Maybe we had better ask her to be sure. Esol Taylor: A sunny disposition. A girl with beautiful tresses. Oh, that there were more crowns like hers! Mrs. Semple surely must have worked Carrie to death — she looked so tall and thin in the class play. Rollie Taylor: He absorbs history by the century. He lead in selling Senior Boosters. A very obliging young gentleman. Roines. Thomas Toole: A good sport. Liked by everyone. Manual ' s backguard. Cyril Wainscott: Babe Ruth ' s understudy in the Ivy day exercises. Sometimes called " Cy " or " Farmer " . Maybe the name " Farmer " comes from his love for the hills of Brown County. Lela Walton: Very energetic, peppy, and very bright. Will be a fine teacher some day. SENIOR BOOSTER Page Thirteen May me Selm: Little Maymie is known in the Drawing VII class for her wonderful Japanese prints. (A good Japanese print can be made out of a poor water color.) Frederick Sering: Fred should go in partnership with Charlie Davis. He certainly doesn ' t like trustees. A regular sun-rise. Mary Ellen Shambaugh: Sadie Kate in the class play. Quite interested in one of the other sex. Wonder who it could be? Frank Shea: Frank was from Missouri, and after wan- dering around from one school to another looking for the best from which to graduate, chose Manual. Made an excellent salesman of class play tickets in R. R. 114. One of Mr. Finch ' s most dependable assistants in the class play. Helen Shepherd: Has a lease on the Indiana ball room. She ' s the kind gentlemen prefer. Faithful worker for our class. Was on the Ivy day program. Pattie Shirley: Ask Patty Bell about the Kollinger Twins, she knows them apart.

One of the many Silvermans who have come to Manual. Burl Smith: I. W. W., W. C. T. U., etc. Another of Miss Hunter ' s economics bright spots. On the stage he is chairman of the outgoing properties committee. Ahem! Hopes to graduate sooner or later. Catherine Smith: She and her brother are going to be graduated in the same class. For a higher education, she will attend Indiana Central. Very staid and dignified to all outward appearances. Helen Smithy: Another of those University Heights girls. Quiet, but we all like Helen. Page Fourteen SENIOR BOOSTER Francis Biemer: He says that he has learned the art of whistling. We are all surprised. He likes mustaches too. Emory Leader: Always has his mind on his work (when there is nothing else around to attract his attention). Wonder where his mustache went so quickly. Lillian Ward: The freckle faced Freddie Perkins in the John Greer Home. P. S. Most of the freckles were artificial. Her father isn ' t the noted cake man how- ever, she eats it. Alden Wilking: On Booster staff. Has quite a collec- tion of Top Ten buttons. Good judge on pictures. Yes. He sings. Marie Wilson: Speech star. Not as quiet as she looks. The maid in the class play. William Woodruff: He certainly did recall pleasant memories on Ivy day. He has the ability of reciting readily at all times in history. Roines. Paul Ziegler: Not many classes have two members whose names begin with Z. Paul and Gretchen Zorn have the honor of finishing the alphabet for the January 1928 class. DEDICATION To Miss Gladys Harloff, who so zealously assisted with the January 1928 class play, we, the members of this class, affectionatelv dedicate our Senior Booster. ' — Class NLotto — j CHARACTER - THE TRUE DIPLOMA SENIOR BOOSTER Page Nineteen Cj He, the January Class of 1928, are about to CU bid farewell to our Alma Mater and after due consideration have decided to leave some of our valuable possessions to our highly esteemed followers. We, therefore, do make, declare, and publish the following will and testament: Item 1 To our highly esteemed principal, Mr. McComb, we do will and bequeath deeds, mortgages, and statements of ownership of our dear Manual. Item 2 To our beloved faculty we leave an adorable June Class, which will surely follow in our noble pathway. Item 3 To our sponsor, Miss Knox, we are leaving a royal, loyal bunch of young gentlemen??? Item 4 To Miss Perkins, Miss Harloff, Mr. Finch, and all the others who helped so energetically to make our " Daddy Long Legs " the " grand and glorious " success of the season, we give our never ending appreciation and whole-hearted thanks. Item 5 To Jean Davidson, we devise and be- queath Bob Howerton ' s permanent wave, and great ability to make love. Ask Gretchen Zorn. Item 6 To the football team of next year, we leave our team ' s ability to " Fight ' em, Gang, Fight em. " Item 7 To Parvin Hagin, we give, to have and to hold, Robert Howerton ' s ability to keep order at senior meetings. Bob says it can ' t be done. Item 8 To the secretary of the June 1928 class, we devise and bequeath Irene Hughes ' never failing attention at senior meet- ings. Item 9 We give Dave Blum ' s ability " to be meek and to mind " to Jimmie Gilbreath who has, as yet showed few signs of these said traits. Item 10 To the stage hands of June 1928, we devise and bequeath the ability to make a fireplace one-third as warm and glow- ing as the library fire in " Daddy Long Legs " . Item 11 To the highest bidder, we give Jerry Gillum and Gertie Dunn ' s ability to Item 12 Item 13 Item 14 Item 15 Item 16 Item 17 Item 18 Item 19 Item 20 Item 21 Item 22 teach our classmen how to dance in one lesson. To those who can ' t seem to get along without working, we devise and bequeath Chris Hankemeier ' s ability to slide through. We will and bequeath to anyone con- cerned, Charles O ' Brien and Parvin Hagins ' " Gift ' o Gab " in civics class. We will Thornton Talbott ' s sunny dis- position and bookkeeping talent to the coming class treasurer. To the art editor of the June 1928 Senior Booster, we devise and bequeath Ronald Bridges ' willingness to be " ever ready up and doing, " his sunny disposi- tion, and ability to be friends with everybody. To any of the June class who can ' t get enough sleep, we devise and bequeath Marjory Collins ' ability to always be wide awake. To the editor-in-chief of the June ' 28 Senior Booster, we devise and bequeath Harold Luessow ' s ability " To put one over on everybody else. " To the historian of the June class, we do devise and bequeath Fred Hensel- meier ' s great ability to " see ' er every night " . To the freshmen of January 1928, we leave the singular ability of the seniors of January 1928 to make the biggest variety of grades possible. To the sophomores and juniors, we leave our never failing smartness as upper classmen. Woe to the January ' 28 seniors! To those poor unfortunates who come late to Mr. Moffat ' s first hour class, we do will and bequeath Marcia Moreman ' s " greyhound " to use in case of emergency. Last and least, I, Grace Givan, who has only the ability to chew gum and hum in the office training class, think I had better retain said traits for myself alone. Modern medical science is wonderful. When a man has a pain in his heel, the doctors first re- move his tonsils, then his teeth, and then his shoe. Page Twenty SENIOR BOOSTER Recollections of school days? Yes, this is what was presented to us on November 23, in our school auditorium.

President of January 1928 Class — Robert How- erton. Vice-President of January 1928 Class — Elmer Foster. Vice-President of June 1928 Class — Jean David- son. Principal of E. M. T. H. S.— Mr. McComb. Ivy Day Poetess — Esther Silverman. Song, Arm-Band, Banner — Ronald Bridges. Ivy Day Committee — Lee Wells, Lela Walton, Miss Taflinger. Music — Myla Herrmann, Mr. Winslow. IVY DAY Now that our parting days are near, What shall we leave to Manual dear? What have we left, or can we leave To Manual which will always cleave, A something that will show our joy, Our love, our faith, without alloy For dear old Manual? The Ivy of true Natures bower Bespeaks itself to us a dower, Unblemished green and stable life, The inward, outward, only strife That comes of loyalty alone, In which the true resounding tone Rings toward Manual! Ah, Ivy of the living green, Thy noble leaves on Manual glean The richer, fairer, brighter days Of youth, of strength, of joy always To be remembered from the start, Beginning with thee in the heart, The soul, the life of this our class. The steady progress we surpassed In dear old Manual. And so we leave, before we go, The Ivy Vine to climb and grow, Until it proudly flaunts its green And climbs the path as it may seem To take its course among the true, And represent this class which grew Within old Manual. — Esther Silverman.

' N ¥ The 1927 Football Squad Wk I V 1 , W- w - « — .« Page Thirty SENIOR BOOSTER enior Forrest Beeson fjkleiics Ol " " ' he January Class of ' 28 has a few raem- J,y bers whose presence on the athletic fields will be missed next year. The following record is an athletic history of these boys of our class: Ralph Adams has played a good game in the sports of football and freshman basketball. This lad used his weight to keep off opposing gridders and was the mainstay of the line. Because of an injury suffered in the Kokomo game, Ralph was unable to take part in the Tech and Shortridge clashes. Adams is a tough fighter and if he keeps plugging away, he can not be anything but a success. Charles Baker is another basketball man. " Tudy " has played for the last two years and has shown a great improvement in that time. Tudy hits hard and should win the struggle for success after he leaves Manual. Forrest Beeson has taken part in basketball at Manual and also tried to introduce golf in the school. Beeson is a golf bug and has won the name of " landscape destroyer. " ' Elmer Foster played freshman basketball and football. During his first season, Elmer was un- fortunate enough to break his leg in a football game. This accident has prevented Elmer from taking an active part in athletics for the last three years. Allen Fox is familiar to Manual sportdom as a basketball man. Allen has played with the var- sity for the past two years and has made a fine record throughout this period of time. Fox also has engaged in track. Jake, as he is commonly known, is a sturdy and upright youngster and shows promise of developing into a real man if he keeps up the good work. Abe Goldsmith has not been eligible for athletics this year, but his fine record in basketball, track, and baseball should be mentioned in this list of athletic achievements. Abe can handle a basket- ball like an expert, and when it comes to collecting the much desired points, he ' s right there. One of the two block M sweaters now in the school is possessed by Abe. This was awarded him in base- ball. Goldsmith was noted as a competent pitcher in baseball, and he sure kept the visiting batters worried. Abe is a nice lad and we heartily wish him the best of luck in the game of life. Frederick Henselmeier is the leading athlete of the January 1928 class, as he was a three sport man, having participated in football, baseball, and basketball. Henselmeier was captain of the foot- ball team and played a mighty good game at cen- ter. As a reward for his good playing in ' 27, Fred received a Purdue Alumni Medal. Fred is a good, clean-cut sport and even grows beards to prove that he is a he-man. In baseball, Fred is a red- hot outfielder with a fog-horn voice that keeps the spirit in the team. Fred played on the freshman basketball team, but was unable to come out for the second or varsity teams. Fred is not a triple- threat man in any game, but when a good, heady, dependable man is needed, we ' ll all say that Fred is the boy. William Woodruff is a baseball and basketball man. Bill has been to Tech and Shortridge, but he says Manual is the school. Bill is a square shooter and works hard, and everyone has to acknowledge that he is a tough opponent under any conditions. We hope that athletics at Manual will help these boys to be good sports in life. If athletics have this one service, the purpose will have been achieved. Accessories salesman: Do you want an auto horn that gives a loud piercing blast so that pedes- trians can hear it above the traffic roar? Wallace Bertrand: No. Just give me one that sneers at them. Woman (on board ship): Can you swim? Sailor: Only at times. Woman: Only at times! How strange! And when do these moments of ability come to you? Sailor: In the water, ma ' am. The stingiest man we know of is the one who gave his little girl a nickel not to eat any supper, who took the nickel away from her while she was asleep, and then refused to give her any break- fast because she lost it. Fred Henselmier: Some one took me for Doug. Fairbanks today. Nadine Barnes: How ' s that? Fred Henselmier: I gave my seat to a lady on the street car today; she said, " Don Q. " SENIOR BOOSTER Page Thirty-one iolke Johnny, stop poking little Edward. I ain ' t pokin ' him, ma, I ' m countin ' his measles. Ronald Bridges: Is he a good driver? Jean Davidson: Well, when the road turns the same time he does, it ' s just a coincidence. Father: The man who marries my daughter will get a prize. Dave Blum: May I see it, please? Burl Smith: He comes from an ancient line. Alice Stevens: I guess that ' s the one he always tells. Francis Biemer: When was the first radio operated in America? Evelyn Head: When Paul Revere broadcast on one plug. Elmer Wallman: I have a suit for every day in the week. Mary Ellen Shambough: Yes? Elmer Wallman: This is it. It was his first visit to a church, and as the usher approached with the collection plate, he whispered to his companion: " How much do you generally tip the minister? " Why did you strike your husband with a roll- ing pin? Well, you see, Judge, I wanted to try to make him level-headed. Johnnie: Paw. Father: Uh-uh. Johnnie: When a man shoots himself does he pull the trigger with his finger or push it with his thumb? Gretchen Zorn: What do you intend to do when you graduate? Bob Howerton: I was thinking of going into the lumber business. Gretchen Zorn: You would! Charles O ' Brien: (twice nicked by a razor) Hey, barber, gimme a glass of water. Elmer Foster: Whasse matter, hair in your mouth? Charles O ' Brien: Xo, I wanna see if my neck leaks. " Billy ' ' Stuckmeyer: What shape is a kiss? " Bobby " Meyer: It ' s a lip-tickle. Dave Blum: What is a guinea pig? Lewis Moore: A guinea that almost made a hog of itself, I guess. Frank Shea: I ' ll call you Alamo. Sophie Marks: Why? Frank Shea: So I can remember you. My foot ' s asleep. What shall I do? Nothing, don ' t you know enough to let sleeping dogs lie? Teacher: What excuse have you for not having your assignment? Armon Ries: I overslept and could not think up an excuse. Mildred Rodgers: Your pants look rather sad today. Rudolph Pfister: What do you mean? Mildred Rodgers: Sort of depressed. Esol Taylor: What was the boy we saw in Amsterdam crying about? Edna Kirch: He probably got in Dutch with his teacher. Jerry Gillum: How long have you been work- ing for the Swivel Company? Fred Sering: Ever since old Swivel threatened to discharge me. Farmer: You ' ve got a cold. Tramp: Yeah. Farmer: How did you get it? Tramp: Slept in a field last night, and some- one left the gate open. Bridget: (weeping): Someone told my Pat that he could get his pants pressed by allowing a steam roller to run over them. Mike: Well what of it? Bridget: Pat forgot to take his pants off! Margaret Marker: Bill can ' t come. He ' s in the hospital. Someone stepped on his pipe at the close of the game. Grace Givan: I don ' t see how that would make him have to go to the hospital. Margaret Marker: It was his windpipe. Page Thirty-two SENIOR BOOSTER 11 i © g r a ip la s SENTINEL PRINTING CO.
