SENIOR BOOSTER 15 June Seniors Thelma Stucky — Always lias a smile for every one. Is liked by everyone for her sunny disposition and spontaneous smile. Ask her about Evelyn ' s love affairs! Works hard in Civics but is bashful about telling what she knows. Charlene Shadley — Took a back seat in room 213 during rol call. Is there — could there be — a reason? She never lets s good time interfere with her studies. Until Shafcr — One of those peppy Cooperative Salesmanship girls who runs back and forth every day. They could call her " Cookie. " But what ' s a " ginger-snap " ? A guest of the Stan law ' s in the class play. Hon; Shearer — One of Manual ' s burly athletes. He cer- tainly knows his football. Henry is the subject of much dis- cussion among the weaker sex. Mr. Hanske ' s favorite joke at roll call: " Is Henry Shearer? " Koines. Mar ij a ret Shell — The other part of Alma Collester — besides being quite a bit attached to some one else. Is one of the steadiest attendees Manual can boast about. Mary Smith — Has anyone ever seen her without Ruth Smitha? She is a regular booster at all the games. Is there a reason? Mary would make a good Sells Floto performer. H. Y. S. Ruth Smitha — Always seen around the gym. Ask her why she likes to hike to Shelbyville. Someone should give her a pair of High Speed Roller Skates for a graduation present. Beatrice Solomon — Loves to argue with Maurice during roll call about the roll room discussion topics. She came from Philadelphia High School and certainly chose the right In- dianapolis High to attend. Mildred Southwick — When you see Mildred, look for Virginia. They are " all for one and one for all. " Likes to dance and is popular with both sexes (even if she does prefer the stronger).

She and Marian White seem to have an interest in common. (You should hear the chatter at roll call!) Jean Tolson — Better known as " giggles, " and that name just suits her. One of the brunette nominees for May Queen, and although she isn ' t to be crowned (no, we don ' t use gas pipes) she was certainly close to the winner. H. Y. S. Ruth Tucker — Nicknamed " Irish. " Wonder what hairdresser makes millions of dollars curling her hair? It seems to be some deep, dark secret — at least, we haven ' t heard the name vet. Some say she ' s shy, but nobody knows when ! Pauline Tudor — Answers to the call of " Polly. " She is a blonde who has never been a brunette. Who her boy friend is seems to be none of anyone ' s — never mind. H. Y. S. Albert TJrwitz — Is known by many as " Half-Pint " ITrwitz. The bell hop in the Operetta — made the hit of the whole per- formance. Elmer Van Deman — Knows his jewelry. Elmer is an artist of no mean ability. We might mention that he has a severe case (almost to a fatal degree) of loveitis. Elizabeth Yiewegh — One of the peppy Manual brunettes.

Norfred Weaver — The Manual artist who made the sign for the class play. He takes everything seriously but jokes. Is possessed of that " school girl complexion. " Is the girl with whom he walks around the halls his sister? Arnold Weddle — Very quiet (a good sign of deep thinking). Arnold is a leader among the seniors — a leader in yells! Really should go into the business. Harold Welch — Manual ' s bookworm. Does he read creepy books? Ask him — and shiver. Has a record. Makes A ' s in Latin VI.

Toots his trumpet — just like a professional. He is one of the senior hoys who helps hold up the scholastic record of Manual. Marian White — Is she as mean to all the little boys as she was to Hansel when she took the part of the witch in the Marionette show? Let ' s hope not. One of the reasons 213 is never quiet. Prompter in the class play. Ethel Wittenbrink— No, she doesn ' t own Pettis ' ! She-is just employed there. The exception in the Office Training classes — she ' s a quiet, little girl. Nina Wiley — One of Mr. Hanske ' s few — but wait! We ' ll elaborate! He says that she can sit in 213, and, while the gabble is going back and forth, study diligently. (Of course, there ' s a chance he may be prejudiced.) Eobert Yoke — " Bob " jumped into the limelight at the I. H. S. A. A. Gymnastic meet at Purdue by winning all-round hon- ors. Very modest about his feat. Belongs in a quite quiet quintet (it hasn ' t been organized yet, though).

In School Sales Norman Palmer Sponsor Miss Hayncs OUR BOOSTER Following the trend of modern thoughts, modern ideas and modern realizations, this, our Senior Booster, has been published. Its designs are more significant than merely a modernistic treatment of ornamentation ! It is a symbol of modern thought. Seeing things in a clear light in a modern way is an achievement well worth attaining. A man who is forever living in an age remote or recently passed cannot adapt himself to life in the present in which, sorrowful to say, he must live. Consequently, he misses the im- portance of things about him and degenerates to a generation already dead. So must the man suffer Avho lives in the future. Today is not Yesterday nor is it Tomorrow. Today is Today and it must be lived. Think not of Yesterday; Yesterday is past. Live To- day and live it completely and you will have no time for Tomorrow, which will be per- fectly cared for. " NOT FINISHED; JUST BEGUN " " — All experience is a broad arch wherethrough Gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades For ever and for ever when I move — " " Ulysses " by Tennyson. As surely as the untravelled world shall al- ways gleam through the broad arch that marks our line of accomplishments, as surely as a new horizon spreads itself before us as soon as the present one is attained, as surely as to- morrow is never realized but that a new to- morrow appears, so surely shall Ave be able to say, " We are not finished — just begun. " When a man sinks back into the velvety com- fort of the chair of retirement, expressing with a sigh of self-satisfaction that he is finished or deplores the lack of opportunities the world has to offer his genius, then that man has ceased to live and begins to merely exist. He has ceased to produce for the world or himself and by ceasing he has drifted from life into existence. We, the senior class of June, 1929, have not finished. Spreading before us is a new horizon dotted with college — higher learning — exper- ience and Avorldly work. Through the arch of graduation gleams the untravelled world of life — Avork and education. It is our heritage to make the most of these offerings. It is our duty to use our heritage and to live. Realizing this, Ave the June class of 1929, could not have chosen a better AvatcliAvord to spur us on to greater efforts, could not have selected a better torch to guide us on the path of our ambitions than this, our motto, — " Not Finished; Just Begun. " William Winter, Editor. APPRECIATION A sincere and deep appreciation s ex- tended to all the members of the June class and to all the under-classmen and faculty members Avho so Avillingly lent their aid to the betterment of the June 1929 Senior Booster. 8 ■: A « ' IS ) 8 t •; R William Winter The tiny rootlets arc grasping — extending themselves into the bosom of the earth in search of the sustenance they need to grow and send leafy fingers up the sides of Manual, for the Ivy of the June class of l .»i- , .» has been planted. Symbolical of the spirit of our class, may our climbing Ivy be! In addition to our class march, the presentation of the Ivy Day Song, written by Frances Dearborn, the recitation of the Ivy Day Poem by E va Burger, and the gifl of the Ivy, there was enacted on the stage a reminiscence of Our School Days. Oh, Ivy — may you hold for us the memory of those pleasant days passed, and symbolize our growth in those days ahead. IVY DAY 1 ' OlvM Eva Burger Ah! Ivy of the freshest green, We plant you here in spring array, To keep our trust when we are gone, To live the memory of this day. Ah! Ivy Vine! Your roots are firm Within the soil ; Just like the courage in our hearts That we have gained through toil. Ah ! Ivy Vine ! Refreshed by Heaven ' s tears, (Ting to these walls with leafy branches strong, We have gained wisdom here And learned the beauty of a song. Ah! Ivy Vine! Symbolic of our love! We have been happy here united — we were one — Soon we must part to walk alone; our work is still Xot finished; just begun. A MILESTONE Frances Dearborn Onward, ever onward. Toward better things we strive; Ever we dream of the future. As we tread the path of life. But sometimes as forward we go, While our school days slip away, A day stands out in memory. As a milestone on life ' s highway. And so as we plant our Ivy On this day we call our own. Let us remember with sadness and joy Our Ivy Day, another milestone. OUR IVY VINE Helen Stringer O, Ivy Vine, we leave you here, In hopes that you will grow, Our trust in you, we ' ll never fear Our loyalty to show.

Refrain Our farewell now is at an end, We ' ll pine no time away, Success to you we ' ll always send, Until we ' re old and gray. In you, oh Ivy Vine, we place Our spirit, strong and true, And our good name without disgrace To always ring true blue. This May the tenth, we now will sow.

When the curtain dropped on the afternoon and evening performances of " Tailor-Made Man, " one almost wished there were a dozen more scenes of this rollicking comedy. For weeks the members of the June class were held in suspense, waiting for that im- portant issue to be decided. What would the class play be? At last that matter came to a close only for the class to be faced with a still greater anxiety. Who would be the leading- lady? Who would be the hero? When finally those matters also were decided, the excitement was over (for the majority) until the actual performance. But not so for the ones in the cast, for it meant hard practicing every even- ing until six oi- seven o ' clock. Miss Lola Per- kins and Miss Boyle gave hours of time coach- ing the cast which so successfully reflected their excellent training. Nevertheless, the hard work did not eliminate lots of fun. At the last minute, the hero frantically searched his pockets for his bow tie; the valet nervously paced back and forth muttering to himself; the dignified society lady limped around in her new satin pumps. Meanwhile the orchestra out front, directed by Mr. Wins- low, gave forth rapturous notes as if to cheer up the would-be actors and to infuse them with new courage.

The actors hurried off to change costumes; stage hands rushed on, each seeming to covet a defi- nite object. In the semi-darkness of the back stage, low toned orders were given and carried out with alacrity and within a few minutes critical eyes were appraising the scene for the last time before the curtain rose for the next act. But in order that the performance might go off smoothly — without a flaw — it was nec- essary for all concerned to have previous train- ing and preparation. Mr. Finch and his as- sistants spent long tedious hours working out settings and the lighting system for the play. The property committee, directed by Miss Baldwin, searched every nook and corner for ironing boards, tape measures, shears, and flat irons. The publicity was most gratifying. Mrs. Ding ' s Composition VI II class edited three issues of " The Tape Measure, " which was dis- tributed to the entire student body. Fosters were made by George Figg, Martha Walthers, Norfred Weaver, and lona Johnson. Miss Ilaynes ' Salesmanship class conceived the idea of printing in red " Tailor .Made .Man " on the paper napkins in the lunch room and having gas filled balloons of brilliant hues along the ceiling to notify the Manualites of the ap- proaching play. Both teachers and pupils expended much effort to make this class play a success and a vote of thanks is due the members of the tech- nical staff.

SENIOR BOOSTER m Max E in .standi g As the fire in the open hearth flickered low, deep shadows took the shape of the memories of my high-school days. On the small table beside me, was a litter of papers and objects that had been misplaced and forgotten, ' but which now served to recall such dear incidents. In the midst of the streaming lamplight, lying in such a manner as to defy my over- looking it, was a report card. It was my first one. Thinking of my freshman days, I recalled the warm September afternoon in 1925 when Mr. McComb had spoken to us, the June class of 1929. Remembering that first year, I thought of the acquaintances and friendships that had been made and of the serious attitude we all took towards Manual. Looking through a Booster of the January ' 27 class, I realized that we avIio had entered Manual on that warm afternoon of September 1925 had then been sophomores and a definite part of Manual. With high ideals and dreams of the future we had passed through our sopho- more year striving for recognition and merit. An Honors Day program told me of the recognition of two members of our class, Eliza- beth King and George Figg who had been awarded Bruce Robinson Post medals. Our junior days had been filled with recognitions. Many members of our class had already dis- tinguished themselves in athletics, art, litera- ture, science and in their devotion to adding esteem to the reputation of Manual. All but unnoticed, with only one corner pro- truding from the litter of things, was a small sheaf of notebook papers. I discovered, highly elated, that they were notes belonging to our class secretary. Looking through them rapidly as if to see that they were all there, I settled back into the seclusion of my chair and paged through each paper that recorded the events of our senior year. The fire had burned low until it became a mass of livid embers and the shadows deepened. Our first union came early in October in the girls ' gymnasium with the painful march which, somehow, I now remembered with mingled joy and regret. On Thursday, Octo- ber 25, and the two following Wednesdays, George Figg was elected president; William Moon, vice-president; Dorothy Anderson, sec- retary and Cedric White, treasurer. It seems now that our senior year had been a most busy one, for one happening was fol- lowed immediately by the next. Scarlet was chosen as the class color on Monday, October 29, and on Wednesday the arm-band submitted by Dale Hynes was selected. A motto commit- tee, consisting of Martin Oslos, Howard Bettge, Frances Dearborn and Don Hopping was appointed. The fruit of their efforts was plucked, when on Wednesday, December 19, the class selected " Not Finished; Just Begun ' ' as the class motto. A banner committee, Wil- liam Moon, Iona Johnson, Martha Walther and William Winter, was appointed. The following semester no change was made in our officers with the exception of treasurer who was now Wilbert Eggert. Miss Ebbert was chosen sponsor of Ivy Day and Mr. Hanske, sponsor of Class Day. On March 12, William Winter was elected editor-in-chief of the Senior Booster and he selected as aids Dorothy Anderson, associate editor, and How- ard Bettge as business manager. Mr. Hanske chose as assistants for the Class Day program Helen Light, Raymond Owens, Frances Dearborn, Norris Cutshaw and How- ard Bettge. At a meeting on March 19, a banner designed by Dale Hynes was voted first choice. Ivy Day was set for May 10 and Class Day for May 31. National Studio photographer was selected for our pictures. A program of our class play, " Tailor-Made Man, " passed next before my view and I re- called the remarkable play. Yellowed with age and worn through on the creases was a newspaper clipping about Alfred Hollander who had won a considerable sum of money in an essay contest on " Les Miserables. " Another clipping told me of the success of George Figg in an art contest, and seeing these two out- standing awards of merit 1 remembered many other recognitions of talent and work that so characterized our class. The embers had Continued on Page Twenty-four S E X TOR HOOK T E R r ti ■ i tel v H l ■ UI .ftiL u : J «rf ' O.s7o.v Arnold. During liis high school career, Neil Arnold lias devoted his time to track. In liis first year he ran the mile and made several points in this event. This year Neil ran the half-mile, mile, and the mile relay. He has always pul forth liis best efforts for Manual, and he will he greatly missed when the call for track is made next year. Becker. Wilbur Becker has been on the baseball team for the past three years. He played in the infield and outfield. " Lode " was he always came through in the pinches. In football he played one year at end and the next year at center. Becker surely made his pres- ence felt on the football field. Bender. Ernest Bender has turned his at- tention to track during his three years at Man- ual. He has been on the track squad for the last two years. His specialties are the 100 yard dash and the broad jump. Bender also put the shot, high jumped and ran the 220 yard dash. He has always been a dependable point getter, and his absence from next year ' s one of the heaviest hitters on the squad, and track squad will be keenly felt. Beplay. Norman Beplay has been one of the greatest all around performers Manual has ever had. lie has played football, basketball and baseball, contributing two years to each of these sports. In football he was a backfield man. He was one of the leading point scorers in basketball. Beplay was especially strong in baseball. He played hangup ball at second base and shortstop, lie is another good fellow leaving Manual. Cutshaw. Norris Cufshaw devoted most of his time to track and football, although he was on the varsity basketball team his senior year. He has just completed his fourth year of varsity track. Cutshaw ran the distance events and the hurdles. In football he played in Hie backfield for three years. As a reward for his untiring efforts he was elected captain of the football team by his teammates in his senior year. Light. Everett Light has been on the bas- ketball team for two years, and he made the football team in his senior year. He played fullback and plunged the line with the fierce- ness of a Joestino-. In basketball, Light played at back guard. He was very strong defensively, and equally as strong offensively. He was always a fighter and never a quitter. Muegge. Elmer Muegge Avas on the varsity basketball squad his senior year. He played back guard, and his height was a great factor in his success at this position. Muegge was a medal winner in freshman track, and he was on the freshman championship team of the city. Owens. Baymond Owens has been on the football team for three years and on the base- ball team for the same length of time. He played in the line and the back-field on the football team and played either position well. In baseball he played first base and field. He was one of the heaviest hitters on the base- ball team and a good fielder. It will be hard to find another man to fill his shoes. Toppaw. Gordon Poppaw played center on the basketball team for one year. He was al- ways in the thick of the fray. He also played on the second team one year. Poppan was an outstanding player, and contributed his share of points in each game he played. Serotie. Joe Serotie played on the varsity and second teams in basketball. He offered his services again this year but he was de- clared ineligible by a rule of the I. H. S. A. A. Shearer. Henry Shearer was guard on the football team for two seasons, and substitute catcher on the baseball squad for two years. Shearer has been a hard, earnest worker at all times, and was always ready to do his best for Manual. Stone. Maurice Stone played forward on the varsity basketball team in his senior year. lie made up for his size by his speed and Page Twenty-foui 24 SENIOR BOOSTER Continual from Page Twenty-two found some fresh fuel as yet unburned and flared up in one last glow of flame. On June 10, at Cadle Tabernacle, commence- ment exercises were executed. How well I re- membered the orderly tiles and that breathless group of Manualites receiving the diplomas that sent them sadly away from the scene of so many pleasant activities and friendships. In the dead ashes remained a few live coals. Coals of memories in the ashes of years ! Sinking back into the seclusion of the chair again, I lived over each scene again, glad that some reckoning had been kept of the four years of joyous life that I and my classmates of the class of June 1!J2 ( J had experienced with- in the sheltering walls of dear old Manual. Continued from Page Twenty-three shiftiness. He had a good eye for the basket and was a good defensive man. Woerxer. Philip Woerner is another of the long line of Manual Woerners. He played end on the varsity football squad for two years and he was on the freshman basketball team. Woerner was adept at catching passes and played a good game on defense. Others who participated in athletics to some extent were: Chester Case, track; Bennie Foote, football; James McDaniels, football; Byron Morris, football ; Martin Oslos, track ; Arnold Weddle, football, and Richard Em- mons, basketball. This galaxy of twenty Manual athletes is the largest of any senior class for many years. Their graduation may seem to dampen Man- ual ' s athletic future, but Ave, who have been acquainted with the school, are sure that the cooperation of the students with the coaches will produce teams as good as the glorious past.

After repos- ing for a hundred years, a touch on the face could not possibly stimulate her to such violent action as jumping out of bed. Anyone who is physically normal, and mentally sane enough to shudder even at the name alarm clock, hates to get up in the morning. I Inc identally, I would never make a good farmer. | You go to bed at night thinking, " Sleep is the boon of my existence, " arrange the pillow at the correct angle, and snuggle between the covers for a good night ' s rest. But just as you are " gone " as far as the rest of the world is concerned, and in the midst of a lovely dream about a pink chiffon frock, trimmed with chocolate eclairs, a voice penetrates your subconscious mind. You say in your best con- versational manner, " Wait a minute, " and re- sume your dream. Suddenly your lax shoulder is rudely set tingling by icy fingers — for so they seem. As if awakening from a trance, through force of habit you gasp, " All right, all right, " and under your breath, " just a min- ute. " " No, you ' ll not wait a minute; it ' s 6:30. Didn ' t you say you had to go to school early today to type an essay? " " Yes, but that doesn ' t liare to be done to- day. " But with that the covers hurtle through the air and deposit themselves in a heap at the foot of the bed. The cold air unmercifully envelops you, and there is nothing to do but " hop out. " Even then the (loddess Sleep seems reluctant to leave, yes, for fully an hour. You stagger as you dress, and could not possibly tell what you had eaten for breakfast. To all rebukes, you sulkily answer, " Why didn ' t you get me up earlier. " Xow 1 ask, how could the Sleeping Beauty possibly have awakened so quickly after a century of sleep, when you cannot easily re- gain consciousness after the prescribed eight hours? But at that, you are very optimistic, forever living in hopes that you will lose your active sense of sleep; and you retire at night with a " get me up early in the morning. " To make the most of dull hours, to make the best of dull people, to like a poor jest better than none, to wear a thread-bare coat like a gentleman, to be out-voted with a smile, to hitch your wagon to the old horse if a star is not handy — that is wholesome philosophy. The man who says he never makes a mistake probably doesn ' t know one when he sees it. The advice you don ' t take is often the best. It is no use waiting for your ship to come in unless you have sent one out. There are two things about which one should never worry — that which can ' t be helped and that which can be. Never meddle with a hornet or a man mind- ing his own business. The Spartan Mother ' s advice to her son Avho feared his sword was too short was — " Add a step to it. " Money talks but has very little conversation with the shiftless. The smile is mightier than the grin. One of the best things to have up your sleeve is a funny bone. Tactfulness — the art of making folks ' round you think they amount to something. One grain tills not the sack but helps tin Don ' t feel sorry for yourself. Feel sorry f« the folks who have to live with you. A great command of language enables one to keep still. The only thing that can cheat some people it of the last word is an echo. Those men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and beautifully succeed. 26 SENIOR BOOSTER Manual Band Senior Orchestra Junior Orchestra S E N I ) R H () () 8 T E R Masoma CJub Science Club SENIOR BOOSTER E.

Today we start on our long race of life after spending four years in preparation. Everyone is ready and eager to be away. Our teachers and under-classmates are gathered around to see us depart. The eyes of the world are turned toward us and are looking forward to our accomplishing great deeds. But we must realize that our new life will be no child ' s play. Heretofore we have been under the careful and tender guidance of parents and teachers, but we are soon to be thrown wholly upon our own resources. We will be unable to turn momentarily to our teachers to seek advice, as we have done during the past four years. Our problems will have to be decided by ourselves. Shall we make a suc- cess or a failure? Up until this time our parents and teachers have watched over us carefully to see that we have made a success. But now, whether we go to college, or enter the business world, we must look to our own laurels. At college we shall have the chance to dis- tinguish ourselves and show what four years here at dear old Manual have really done for us. There we cannot live on our reputation as Manual students, because in college we are thrown in contact with hundreds of students from other schools who are ready and willing to take the lead and establish names for them ' selves. In the business world, our problems will be somewhat different. We shall have to match our knowledge with that of all types and char- acters of men and women. In business it will be much more difficult to forge ahead because the handicaps are more numerous and compe- tition grows keener as time passes. Therefore, may we as outgoing seniors, realize the full significance of our class motto, " Rowing, Not Drifting. " By rowing, we achieve success; by drifting, we achieve nothing. So let us all row — row — row! SENIOR BOOSTER Page Fifteen CLASS PLAY Marie McCool THE January seniors presented their class play on the night of December 14, 1928. Everyone back stage was tensely waiting for the signal which would raise the curtains and start the performance. Up to the last minute, stage hands were busily arranging flowers on the stage and giving everything a final touch. The play was a four ' act romantic comedy entitled " Rosemary " and was written by Louis N. Parker and Murray Carson. All through the play, the settings were beautiful. The selection of a class play was only the beginning. The costumes had to be made, the cast had to be selected, and many other impor ' tant things had to be done to make the play a success. Miss Perkins, assisted by Miss Boyle, selected the cast. Miss Denny had charge of the design- ing of the lovely costumes worn, and Miss Schaefer was in charge of the sewing. Both teachers were assisted by the senior girls and the sewing department. Much credit is due the actors also. They worked long and hard to make the play a sue- cess. Of course, all was not work. There was a great deal of fun along with the hard work. Norma Amt was the play prompter and was on the job ready to rescue anyone who might accidentally have forgotten his or her part. After it was all over, the members of the cast were glad that they had helped to make their play a success, but sorry that they had to take off the make-up and costumes for the last time and call it finished.

The January Class of 1 929. SENIOR BOOSTER Page Seventeen CLASS HISTORY Robert Tilford JUST four years ago in the month of Janu ' ary, we, the class of January ' 29, gathered on the wharf of the Old Auditorium Boat House and prepared to embark upon a perilous four year voyage toward the land of higher education. With due ceremony and a send-off speech by the experienced Captain McComb, we boarded our spacious galley " Old Manual " of some two hundred oars and took our re- spective places. Faint at heart and unexperi- enced in the wiles of propelling such an enor- mous craft, we made many mistakes. Squall after squall was encountered, but we managed to engineer our craft safely through them all. Many jibes and jeers were thrown at us from passing crafts whose crews, consisting of more experienced upperclassmen, saw that we were new at the job. Time passed, as it naturally will, and we, as seamen, improved. The row- ing was hard, the sea was rough, and the hours were long and trying. The long trip called for hard work and those who did not work hard were thrown overboard. About this time we landed and were granted a three months 1 leave of absence. On returning to our jobs, we at- tacked the work and fairly flew over our course until we received our first promotion. Encouraged by the outlook of a rower ' s life as sophomores, we returned to our work from a brief respite determined to overcome every obstacle. We were shown new oars on a deck above those of our first year and started plug- ging again. Every storm and hurricane we welcomed, in order to show the rest of the crew what we had learned about seamanship. We found, however, after many quailing struggles, that we were learning more every day. We were, at this time, granted our sec- ond leave of absence. Refreshed by this leave, we returned the following semester and made sure but swift work of the rest of our year as sophomores. Being junior officers now, we felt we were ready for anything. We were at last veterans of two seasons at sea, and we were proud. We enjoyed our rowing quarters now for they were better than ever before. Through fog, mist, rain, and wind, we steered our stately craft more skillfully than ever. We were now nearing our third promotion and thinking of the near future when we would enjoy our certain privileges as senior officers. After a lay-over of three days, we returned to our seaworthy old craft and took full charge. We found that to do so successfully, we needed officers to command and direct the crew. We called a meeting in our forward cabin and elected the following: Arthur Braun, captain; William Moon, first mate; Marie McCool, log keeper; and Irma Schultz, purser. We also selected blue for our color as every ship must fly a color. We chose Mid- shipman Paul Sim ' s armband and motto. The motto " Rowing not drifting " was very appro- priate for the spirit of our splendid class. About this time the class made one of its few mistakes as the writer was chosen Historian, to record the events of our wonderful trip. We were then granted our last leave of absence. We soon boarded our beloved craft for the last time. Though somewhat sad, we were de- termined to make a grand finish. We again met in our forward cabin and immediately re- elected Arthur Braun, captain; we elected Stewart Cedarholm, first mate; Marie McCool was again chosen log keeper; and Mary Eliza- beth Colter was chosen purser. In looking over our log book, I record some of the important dates. On October H, Elvy Allen was chosen editor of the Senior Booster. On October 23, we chose Rosemary as our class play and Lillian Grossman ' s lovely design for our class banner. Dorothy Williams ' song was chosen for Ivy Day which was very suc- cessful due to the untiring efforts of Miss Brady. Later Louise Carter was elected Will- maker; Robert Wagener, Prophet; and Arnold Thielman, Giftorian. On December 13 and 14, our class play met with well deserved success. As we end this wonderful trip, we sincerely hope that the many crews that follow us meet with the same success that we were fortunate in encountering.. Page Eighteen SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS GIFT!

SENIOR BOOSTER Page T ineteen CLASS PROPHECY Robert Wagener With due apologies to all, I, the prophet of that most illustrious January, 1929, graduating class of Emmerich Manual Training High School, do in return for certain compensation (if you don ' t believe it, ask me) submit this article. The incidents narrated herein took place in Pyle ' s Eleventh Annual Bunion Derby of the year 19? 9, which was by co- incidence the year of the reunion of the afore- said class. On the twelfth day of June the entrants in the race lined up on the beach. I drew a posi ' tion in the front row. There was a big crowd to see us off. Finally, after more or less confu- sion the gun sounded and we were off; there were about two hundred and twenty in num- ber and all determined to finish first. Down through the city we swung, everybody staring at us. In the middle of the city, a street car con- ducted by Aubrey Elrod (not a mule car either) almost ran over me. I think Elrod missed his calling; he should have made history his life work. In the movie district we found Art Braun selling Palmolive Soap to Louise Givan, Clara Bow ' s successor. She has that school girl com- plexion so much sought for. At the same place I saw Mary Colter, also an actress, practicing the Battle of the Prague behind scenes. She said that she, while in high school took lessons by correspondence, and the lesson containing that selection was lost in the mail. I recommended Chopin ' s Polonaise Mili- taire as a much demanded piece. Further down the road I passed " Arnie " Thielman, lover of brunettes, going in the op- posite direction. He was trying to find a cer- tain party. Guess? He would not tell me whether he was seeking a blonde or a brunette. Standing on a corner selling extras, was Elvy Allen. The headlines notified us that " Andy " 1 McNierney had won a berth on the Hawaiian Barefooters, a champion independent football team. Remember Austin? Out of the city at last, and I was still run- ning strong. Passing one of the vast orchards, I saw Luther Burbank the second, alias Edgar Seit , pruning one of his famous seedless grape trees. They say he is loaded down with money. We stopped for lunch in a little town called Deadshot McGrew, named so after a former pupil of Al Capone, and found that the new sheriff, Paul Sims, was cleaning up the place. Paul was made sheriff on the strength of his former record. At San Bernardino, the papers told us that Ulah Shull, famous aqua star, had won a beauty contest. She was given the name Miss Manual. The next morning I was feeling terrible, but nevertheless, I started with the rest heading towards the hills. At the Devil ' s Gulch I found Virgil Louden, the drug man, operating a soft drink estab- lishment. In Grand Canyon National Park, we visited the cedar home of Cedarholm. On the road again after another night, my attention was called to Marybelle Singer of the sewing machine company who was just passing. It was just east of the National Park that I was almost hit by a Ford piloted by Commo- dore James Sanford who was running a bus line to nowhere in particular. One of the convalescing ones at Colorado ' s famous Hot Springs was Ward Hacker, the musician, who was recuperating from the ef- fects of a barnstorming tour of Europe. In the desert we saw Mildred Glass, sweep- ing the snow off the porch of her ranch. At Solemnsville I received the news that Sam Klor was now a Spanish bull fighter. As the days kept on I still had first place. I was very surprised to meet Fred Koehrn and to find that he had quit mourning the girl he had loved and lost and was ready to settle down as an actor. Arriving at Salt Lake City, I found that Bob Tilford (the personal answer to a maiden ' s prayer) was living contentedly. In the same town with Bob I saw Sam Coplin, who, I heard, was also paging Solomon. Thus I traveled to Denver where I visited Page Twenty SENIOR BOOSTER Agnes Postma, stenographer for the Paul Rettig Company, makers of portable golf courses and other such necessities. Working with them was Dorothy Ragsdale, world ' s fast- est typist, advocate of Underworld typewriters. In the desert again, and I found Ida Searcy, companion of Castor Oil, a creation of Frank Rogers, the humorist. On to Kent where they had just voted Marjorie Wilson the worlds best dressed woman, and Constantin Borshoff, the biggest of the " handsome brutes. " Kansas City showed us the Hoxie Daily Squawk with Bill Nangle, humorist, and War- ren Hogan, society editor. Arriving at Fort Sumner, we decided that Catherine Lyzott had a monopoly on both fraternity and sorority pins. Lest I forget, I must say that while in Kan- sas City, I also found Rollie Van Winkle and Raymond Bailey endeavoring to find the Re- publican National Convention of ' 28. I discovered Clarence and William Caesar in a new role, that of Siamese Twins in Del Rio ' s " nickle uproar. " To my vision came next, Robert Greenburg, the mathematician, endeavoring to calculate the amount of sand in America ' s Great Desert. It was only through my intervening that Nellie Grady, the frugal housewife, was kept from behind the bars for dipping radishes in Salt Lake. Lester Murray is still pitching baseballs for the St. Louis Blues. Florence Moody in St. Louis was trying to solve the problem of why girls leave home. Everett Harmening, also a mathematician, was calculating the number of gallons of water in the Mississippi. At Kinder, Robert Manion had the town roaring at his bright cracks while Rudolph Schieb was a rejuvenator of Fords. Marie McCool and Irma Schultz were sec- retaries for the Bone Dry Bottling Company. Dorothy Williams was studying piano in Paris. (Paris, Illinois.) Among the discoveries I made was, that Naomi Young was afraid of guns. Harry Woidowsky was selling cigar coupons to Robert Lauck for Sam Levinsky. Clara Wood was a regular subscriber for the Warrenville Showdown, a college paper. Dorothy Waughtel was cashier in a penny arcade while Dorothy Wills was nurse in a home for the feeble minded, among whose in- mates are — well nobody in particular. Mary Wade graduated from St. Louis Uni- versity with the highest co-ed athletic honors. She placed first in all the high-reach contests. Helen Twyman was a walking model of Wonderbread, strength builder. Rose Tuchman was playing with Charlie Davis ' s boys. Robert Thrasher, scientist had just published his latest physics text book, Better Late Than T ever. Lucille Wegehoft ' s latest picture, When Will Somebody Care for Me, had come to town for a record run of about two months. Bernice Schnell had the title " The Perfect Woman " with Henry Schoenborn as her prin- cipal competitor. E. L. Rasmussen was doing his best to make himself eligible for the House of David ' s Hair Growing Footballers who had James Lewis as manager and " Rube " Reiswerg as main for- ward. Ruth Jordan still had the giggles. Thelma Lambirth ' s pictures were being used as advertisements for Marie Landrey ' s Green- wich Beauty Shoppe. Among the graduates of this shoppe were Adelaide Taylor and Helen Rosenbaum. Robert Robbins, Aunt Mae Teeter ' s best man, was the most demanded man in Mahalas- ville. Garnet Massey was the last romantic casu- alty of the town of Chester. Emma Moehlman was purchasing agent for Sears-Roebuck Co. In Pine Bluff, Bruce Davy was called the perfect man and as a tennis player placed high among the society buds. At Salisbury, Richard Bauer, the musician, was selling " Pillsbury ' s Best. " Kermit Harris seems to have quite a reputa- tion at Springfield as a " man of affairs. " Virginia Harris was editor-in-chief of the " Punkville Daily Scramble. " Columbus knew Elizabeth Lafkin as a re- ceiver of unsigned letters. Edna Kritsch was makinc her way to col- lege by selling glasses to the blind. Gerald Hutchinson was a student of higher science at Butler. William Kehrein and William Kingery in Cincinnati were at the head of the 2,00. Looks funny, doesn ' t it? SENIOR BOOSTER Page Twenty-one JOKE! Edgar SErn Mary Elisabeth Colter: " Which actor in the play did you like best? " Arnold Thielman: " The one that gave me my comp. " Wm. Nangle: " What are these holes in the fence? " Rose Tuchman: " They ' re knot holes. " Wm. Nangle: " Why, they are holes, too. " " Have you read ' Freckles ' ? " " No, mine are brown. " Raymond Hamner: " Do you make life-size enlargements? " Photographer: " Yes — we specialize in that line. " R. Hamner: " Well, do this one for me. Here ' s a snap shot of a whale. " Office Manager: " Here, this will never do. You ' re late the very first morning. " Elvy Allen : " I ' m sorry, sir. There are eight in our family and the alarm was set for seven. " A. Braun : " Will you join me in a bowl of soup? " Naomi Whittakcr: " Do you think there will be room for both of us? " Under the hanging mistletoe The homely co-ed stands, And stands and stands and stands and stands And stands and stands and stands and stands. Inventor: " This, sir, is an epoch making machine. " Capitalist: " Well, let ' s see it make an epoch. " Father: " Well, son, how do you like your new teacher? " Son: " Oh! She ' s all right, but she doesn ' t know anything — all she does is ask questions. " Senior: " Got a match, freshie? " Freshie: " Sure. " Senior: " This won ' t light. " Freshie: " That ' s funny — it just lit for me, " Father was sent by mother to get Billy home from his baseball playing. One hour later they came in together. " Was he safe? " mother cried. " Safe a mile, but the umpire called him out! " " Why didn ' t you bring him home? " " I tried to, but the shortstop made a great catch! " At the head of the Hawkins ' " Detective " Agency was Wilma Hawkins. Helping her in the detective capacity were Paul Adomatis, Harold Baker and Joseph Goldstein. Ellen Meinzen, Ruth Mendel and Elizabeth Miller were in the face lifting business. Among their patrons who spoke well of them were Elizabeth Smith, Mane Stumpf and Lu- cille Tatum. Evelyn Cain was giving dancing lessons by correspondence to Stella Adams, Norma Amt, Irma Anderson and Britta Dolk. Dorothy Bluemel and Dorotha Brinkman were attending college at Yale. Martha Barnes was a circus professor. Among her pupils were Dosia Edwards, Grace Elkins, Lois Burton and Margaret Cassidy. Howard Burton and Raymond Hammer were on the stage. Imagine the rest! At Halifax I found that four former Man- ual girls had organized a quartet. They were Lillie Hamblen, Lillian Grossman, Mary Gross and Irene Gillespie. Alberta Franke was their director. Margaret Crawford had joined the Follies and had made a big hit. And so we finally came to New York where the two Carter girls, Lois and Louise, were making their bow to society and where I, amidst a thrilling finish, won the race by a nose length . Page Twenty-two SENIOR BOOSTER SENIOR ATHLETE! Howard Burton FOR four years Ed. Rasmussen has been one of the outstanding athletes at Manual. He first participated in athletics under Coach Evans. He was on the city championship fresh- man basketball team. In football Ed. especially distinguished himself, as he was on the varsity squad three years. During this time he was selected on the All-City eleven, and was win- ner of a Purdue Alumni Medal. Lester Murray pitched two years for the Manual Sandlotters. During this time he twirled eight games, won all of them, and five of them were shutouts. One of those boys who has earned a block " M. " Les has learned a lot about pitching at Manual, and no doubt we will hear more about him if he decides to play baseball in college. Austin McNierney went out for football and track. Mac was one of the leading point makers on last year ' s track squad and is ex- pected to be the real goods this year. Mac also has played football for the past two years and was on the varsity both years. He is a very dependable end, being selected on the All-City team this year. Aubrey Elrod is a brother to the renowned Ralph Elrod. " Ellie, " as he is called, followed the same line as did his brother. " Elbe " was also successful as he made the varsity after playing three years of second string ball. " Elbe " is the scrappiest little player in seven states. Never gives up. Reuben Reiswerg has played basketball at Manual for four years and was a member of the City Championship freshman team. " Ruby " has also played with the varsity the past two years. Reisberg is an Abe Goldsmith the second when it comes to handling the ball. Robert Tilford turned his attention mainly to football and through football he has made himself well known. During his three years on the squad he has always been a hard fighter and a willing worker. Through his efforts he succeeded in being a regular on the varsity this year. Stewart Cedarholm is a two year man in basketball. Stewart played on the freshman team, then quit school for a year. He came back determined to do something for old Manual; therefore he again took up basketball. This time he succeeded in making the varsity. Stewart has the ability and should succeed in the game of life. Howard Burton played basketball at Manual for four years, and was a member of the City Championship freshman team. He succeeded in making the varsity squad during his senior year. Burton is a Forrest Beeson the second when it comes to golf. Bob Wagener has received recognition as a member of the football squad. He has also played on the tennis team. Wagener has pro- gressed rapidly since he has taken up athletics at Manual. We wish Bob the best of luck as he advances to higher athletics. Constantin Borshoff has taken part in foot- ball and track at Manual and made a good showing in each. Borshoff was a dependable backfield man on the gridiron squad, and was an all round man in track. He ran dashes, broad-jumped and high-jumped. Robert Greenburg, because of his desire to make excellent grades, did not take part in any sport until his senior year. Making up for lost time he succeeded in making the varsity in basketball. Bob is not spectacular b ut is always in the thick of the fray. She: " I could dance this way forever. " He: " Oh no, you ' re bound to improve. " " Ever hear about the Scotchman who got on a street car that said ' Pay as you leave 1 ? " " No. " " Well, he ' s still on. " Recently a preacher who had been very sick received a package of brandied peaches from some members of his church. Later, upon asking him how he liked them, he replied: " I couldn ' t eat the peaches, but I appreciate the spirit they were sent in. " SENIOR BOOSTER Page Twenty-three FOOTBALL TEAM W.
