The best, Ave realize, must cease to be our best as we move toward it. Always must we strive for that which is just beyond our grasp. Our best, like a jeweled crown which turns to the food of experience at our touch, must be far- ther away and richer than that which has gone before. One better than our best — this must be our goal. How unfortunate it would be to grasp, with hands void o f the magic touch of ambition, the crown of attainment and place it on our heads. How Ave should starve for that nourishing morsel which would strengthen us for another step ! Often only one timely self-imposed in- centive for progress is all that is needed to take advantage of the inertia of our accomplish- ment to make it " Better Than Our Best. " TO THE FACULTY When we. the June 1930 Seniors, leave Emmerich Manual Training High School, in our minds there will be an impression that will not be fully appreciated until future years. Our appreciation without doubt goes to the members of our distinguished faculty, who through our time at Manual have been an out- standing influence in advising us. This advice and, perhaps, resented suggestions will be re- flected in our characters and also our successes in years to come. When we entered here as freshmen, we soon came to know and realize the fact that the members of our faculty were people out of the ordinary. They seemed to take interest in each and every student, and as four years have rolled by we find that the interest has not died but that it is stronger than ever. So, in our humble way, we, the June 1930 Seniors, wish to thank the members of the Manual Training faculty with our appreciation for the interest that has been shown us. John Kosaveach,, Associate Editor. OUR AIM After the climax of a four-year sojourn on the elements of education, the inevitable ques- tion arises " Where do we go from here? " This question can be answered only by the individ- ual, but one thing definitely applying to every individual may be stated. Pick one star to shoot at, and aim at that goal. If there are others in the way, get them too. Bring them down to your feet, but do not linger over them for the big one must be cap- tured. This is just a new way of repeating an age old axiom that " a rolling stone gathers no moss, " but even now it is as logical as it was the day it was first written. For anyone starting out to succeed, a good tiling to keep in mind is the one ultimate pur- pose. And a good way to do this is to make each immediate one a stride in the right direc- tion. Jack Saulcy, Editor. APPRECIATION The Senior Booster staff extends its true gratitude and appreciation to all who helped in any way to make this book a success. 00 Senioe Boosteb CLASS PLAY IDA ZIMMERMAN Many oil ' s and airs were heard in the aud- ience on the night of April 11, 1930, when the curtain arose on the scene of the fairy ' s palace from " The Blue Bird. " Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgium play- wright, has woven the ancient symbol of hap- piness, the bluebird, into a beautiful and charming play which was remarkably well presented by a cast of sixty from the June, 1930, senior class. They feel that they have presented one of the most beautiful and worth- while class plays produced in recent years. It is the story of two children who have a wonderful dream on Christmas eve — a dream of a search for happiness. More than one hundred seniors answered the first call for tryouts. From this large group, sixty were chosen, and for weeks the cast worked diligently with Miss Lola Perkins and Miss Maude Blackwell who gave generously of their time and energy to produce succe ss- fully " The Blue Bird. " In the first act, in the wood-cutter ' s cottage, two children, Mytyl and Tyltyl, wake up on Christmas eve and, going to the window, see a coach arriving at the home of their rich neighbors. Thinking over their neighbors ' good luck, they fall asleep. They dream that a witch comes into their house, and after she asks questions as to the color of her eyes and hair, she turns into the Fairy Berylune, who sends the children in search of the bluebird for her little daughter who is ill. She allows the children to take with them the necessities of life — Fire, who always wants to fight with Water, who always fought back ; Bread, who cut slices of bread from his tummy and fed the children ; Milk, who broke her pitcher ; and Sugar, with the wiggly striped candy fingers. The children were also allowed to take with them the Cat and Dog (who could meow and bow-wow realistically). On the Avay, Mytyl and Tyltyl have many fine adventures — at the Fairy ' s palace, where they are given beautiful clothes and where Tyltyl uses his magic diamond. The Fairy Berylune gives her wand to Light, who then leads the children in their search. On the way, they visit the Land of Memory, where they see their grandparents. Light then directs them to the graveyard, where, after much suspense, they find there are no dead after all.

In the kingdom of the Future, represented by a beautiful scene in blue, where Father Time with his scythe allows but a few chil- dren at a time to take their gifts and leave for the earth kingdom, the children see their future brothers and sisters. At last, after a weary search they come once more to the door of the wood-cutter ' s cottage Avhere they bid good-bye to their many new friends. In the awakening scene, the children find the blue bird, happiness, in their own humble cot- tage. Mr. Winslow and the orchestra did much to add to the entertainment of the audience, and to the pleasure that " The Blue Bird " offered. Senior Booster 23 CLASS PLAY 24 Senior Booster Class Play Technical Staff IDA ZIMMERMAN " The group of stage assistants that I had for ' The Blue Bird ' was more willing to work than any group I have ever had in any class play. " With these words, Mr. Lewis Finch, stage man- ager for many class plays, summarized the Avork the June 1930 technical staff did for the production of " The Blue Bird. " It necessitated fast work on the part of the stage assistants to change the settings between scenes and to have the lighting effects so perfect and to do all that was done to give the proper background for the work of the cast. The setting for the first scene, the woodcut- ter ' s cottage, that resembled many of the peas- ant homes of Belgium, was designed by Ade- laide Woerner and Nellie Truitt. The first scene of Act II was at the Fairy Berylune ' s palace, which had towers and turrets like real Fairyland castles and was the design of Irma Miller and Grace Kramer. Edward Fox and Carl Zike designed the scene of the Land of Memory, that made one dream of the happy past. The entrance to the Graveyard was the design of William Niehaus. Lionel McCracken and John Schumann designed the Graveyard proper, where one expected ghosts to dance, but they did not. Katherine Haley was in charge of the beautiful scene of the Kingdom of the Future, which portrayed the home of the children of the future who were guarded by Time and seven angels. The seventh scene, the Green Door, was the scene of the Leave-taking, and was designed by William Niehaus. The last scene, the Awakening, was the same as the first and was in charge of the same committee. While the arl students had charge of the stage and settings, Miss Haynes and her Sales- manship classes had charge of the advertising campaign within the school. The delicious bluebird cookies that were served in the lunch room during the class play campaign and the bluebird frieze across the front of the lunch room were the ideas of the Salesmanship classes. Those students made the magic diamond cap, wooden leg, frying pan, and the fairy wand that the members of the east wore as symbols of the parts they played. This manner of advertisement helped make the ticket sale so successful. V ' s Diary was composed by Mr. Moffat ' s sec- ond hour Composition VIII class and mimeo- graphed by the Office Training girls. To the many teachers and students who gave their services and helped to make " The Blue Bird " such a huge success, great thanks is here- by given them by the June 1930 seniors. Especial thanks is given to Miss Perkins, and Mr. Finch for the work they have done for the June class of 1930.

For the first time the future June 1930 seniors sat as students in the beautiful auditorium of dear old Man- ual. We were an unusually large group of freshmen, and although we firmly believed that safety lay in numbers there came a feeling, deep down within us. that we Avere extremely small and insignificant after all. Then Mr. McComb rose to give us his words of welcome. As he talked there loomed before us. for the first time, a vision of the mighty Tower of Knowledge. What a wonderful struc- ture it seemed as it rose stone upon stone to vanish from sight among the clouds! We learned that, we were to construct this marvel- ous building and each would have a part to play. Then we understood the reason why we were freshmen. Before long Ave were wandering through the halls and were being assigned the work best fitted for us. Some went to the shops, some to the art department while others went to the home economics and commercial departments. Everyone Avas busy at something, because a great deal of planning and careful study was necessary to make the construction absolutely perfe ct. Finally the first year passed. The foundation and corner stone had been laid. The second year Ave returned with renewed energy and vigor. We Avere eager to begin the actual construction. Being Avell trained Ave naturally advanced rapidly. Our building be- gan to take the shape of a most beautiful struc- ture. The glistening white marble facing be- gan to assume wonderful proportions, and the interior structure Avas developing marvelously. Occasionally troubles arose, but Ave always sur- mounted these obstacles, and before the end of the year the work was more than half com- pleted. Then came the third year. By this time Ave began to realize how important our prelimin- ary training was. Some of our less active workers quit or were discharged but others always came to fill their places. It Avas dur- ing this year that many of our members be- came outstanding as leaders in their respective undertakings. Finally the year began to draw to a close, and at the same time our tower was completed. Completed but not yet finished ! We still had the fine points and many finishing touches to add. So promptly at the beginning of the fourth year Ave gathered in room 135. What a scandal Ave created by our horrible conduct! Still it lingers as a pleasant memory. We did what Ave were at first told to do — get ac- quainted. At our first meeting, early in Octo- ber, Ave elected Wilbur Harris to be Building Superintendent and Melvin Henselmeier as his assistant. Joan Boswell was chosen Book- keeper and Recorder while Mary Stierwalt was appointed Controller. Immediately our leader started things mov- ing by appointing several committees. We wanted a color which was to be the basis of all our designs, so Edith Murphy was put in charge of a committee to collect samples of colors. Wishing a banner and armband to be done in this color, Wilbur appointed Angela Vinci and Kenneth Grow to work on respective committees. Then since Ave desired a fitting motto to adorn our banner, Leo Kirch Avas given a committee which was to provide the same. In a Aery short time AA r e had chosen crimson as our color and a beautiful design by Bruce Ruark for our armband. The efforts of the motto committee culminated on March 13 when Ave chose " Better than our best " as our class motto. Then proving ourselves consistent in our artistic tastes avc chose Bruce Ruark ' s banner design. In the middle of the year Ave again elected Wilbur Harris to be our leader. Harry Har- niiin was chosen as his assistant, while Joan BosAvell and Mary Stiei ' Avalt Avere assigned to their former duties. Just about this time it was decided that Ave must have a word picture of our building ex- periences, so Ave chose Jack Saulcy as editor in-chief of a booklet entitled the Senior Booster. He in turn picked John Kosaveach as associate editor, and Elizabeth Bissell as busi- ness manager. Since our tower was at last nearing comple- tion Ave wished to have several festival days. For the first of these Ave decided upon a play. So on April 10 and 11, Maeterlinck ' s " Blue Bird " was presented, and what a delightful presentation it Avas. Then it was suggested that Ave leave behind us some symbol, some living symbol, which would increase in size and beauty as the years passed on. To plant an ivy vine, which would grow over our Tower of Knowledge, was deemed appropriate as it would always be reaching higher and higher as would aac Miss Helen Tipton was asked to sponsor our lA r y hay celebration. We accepted Virginia Ash ley ' s Ivy Poem and Florence Cheadle ' s Ivy Song. Then on May 9 Ave had a clever Ivy Day program. {Continued on Page 26) 26 Senior Booster IVY DAY IDA ZIMMERMAN To be, or not to be — that was the question. But with Miss Tipton as sponsor, everyone knew that the June 1930 seniors would, after all, have a beautiful Ivy Day program. The seniors marched down the aisles to music played by an orchestra, led by Mr. Winslow. In front of the curtain was held the beautiful class banner designed by Bruce Kuark and executed by Anna Presutti who held the banner before the seniors as they as- sembled. It bore the class motto " Better Than Our Best. " When the curtain opened, the officers of the .June 1930 class were seated around a table covered with a gleaming cloth and banked high with beautiful flowers. Their conversation turned to the problem of what flower would be the most fitting to choose for the .Tune seniors. The president, Wilbur Harris, suggested that the lieur de lis, the French lily, would be an appropriate gift. At the close of his speech, Lenore Rundberg, dressed as a French girl, and Kenneth Grow, as a French officer, sang the French version of " Memories of France. ' " Edythe Murphy next suggested that the shamrock should be chosen; Virginia Amato, Florence Condrey, Elizabeth Hocker, and Helen Taylor tried to prove Edythe ' s point by giving an Irish dance. At this point in the conversation, Norman Stanley suggested the chrysanthemum of Japan and Tlielma Swann, doing a charming Japanese dance, almost convinced the party. But to Dorothy Ruddell ' s suggestion of the ivy vine as a fitting emblem of th e class, Mary Stierwalt agreed so Virginia Ashley read the Ivy Day poem she had written, aud Florence Cheadle played the Ivy Day song, the words and music of which she had composed. After this evidence was presented in favor of the ivy vine, the decision was made in its favor. So Wilbur Harris presented our principal with the ivy vine and Mr. McComb gave a short talk on " Better Than Our Best, " the class motto. Carl Hanna, as president of the January senior class, accepted the care of the silver trowel which the June president proffered him. With the singing of " On Manual " another Ivy Day program became a link in the chain of such festivals. The June seniors, together with their guests the post-graduates and the January seniors, then went to the boys ' gymnasium where danc- ing was enjoyed. THE GIFT A gift we leave old Manual Before we journey on A symbol of this Ivy day That lives when we are gone. A gift not rich with splendor And yet we hold it high Its beauty grows with every year To thrive when spring comes by. A gift we leave old Manual, That will not die with time But cling to you as we to you, We give this Ivy Vine. Virginia Ashley. IVY DAY SONG We Seniors now humbly come to honor, Our day of the Ivy Vine — , A token of faith and love we give, ' Tis one we hope will always live, And, as we dedicate this living Ivy, We plant into our hearts our motto — , " Better than our best, " to be, Oh thou Ivy Vine — . As we tread the paths of our new living, A day comes to us again — , When as a symbol we planted you, When faith and love were planted too — . Then, dedicated we, the living Ivy, And graved upon our hearts our motto, " Better than our best " to be, Oh thou Ivy Vine — . Florence Cheadle. CLASS HISTORY (Continued from Page 25) Finally our monument was so near comple- tion that on May 23 we had an Open House Day which was called Class Day. Mr. Hanske and Miss Ewing arranged an appropriate and interesting program. The class history was given by Leo Kirch, while a most truthful prophecy was given by Norman Stanley. Ken- neth Grow proved a very generous Giftorian, and Robert Beeson ably took charge of our Last W ill and Testimony. And now our wonderful Tower of Knowledge is finished and as we pass from it out into the world let us consider it not a monument to the past but a guiding light to the future.

His favorite password is " Hi! " , , and how to use it. Also to whom. Marie Miller — Is reported to have made a good record as Exchange editor on the weekly Booster.

Hasn ' t time for frivolities as she spends all her time on studies — and she gets them too. Xrd Perkins — Has that famous grin.

" Eose Pile — Is the good looking girl with the wonderful voice. AVe wonder how long her eighteen day diet lasted. Her one fault is losing her breath while arguing with " Scotch " McGary. She is very likeable. Claudia Purkhiser — Of course you know her — on the costume committee and properties committee. She was secretary and treasurer of the " Y " section of the Junior Drama League also. Thomas Pottage — Manual ' s golf star. Tom must be a good player because he says so himself. It is rumored that Mr. Thomas Pottage knows all the insects in Manual. He ought to ; he has taken biology. Esther Pyles — Has an out-put of smiles and an income of the same. She ' s a hard, willing worker. One of the girls in co- operative salesmanship. The Girls ' Glee club, the Masoma club and Manual won ' t know what to do without her. Freeman Quinettc — A Business Law wiz and one who knows how to play basketball. But there ' s something wrong with his physiology class — it reminds him of the Fisk sign — time to retire.

" Russ " swings wicked golf clubs certain blonde all at the same time, wonder, or is it " fore " -thought? both very good and attracts a Can this be a secret we A be Bambatz — Our next senator-elect. Ask Miss Thale or Mr. Maxwell about him. Abe is studious and intelligent. He looks quiet but isn ' t — not even about questions to which he doesn ' t know the answers! Gertrude Beimer — One of the good looking red-heads in Manual. Always bubbling over with giggles. Treat her to a package of gum and watch the results. It ' s worth it! Vice-president of the " X " group of the Business Girls ' club. Genevieve Eeeder — One does not know what to make of Genevieve at a glance — because it takes more than one. De- spite her taciturnity, her teachers will vouch for her. Wilson Bobbins — Is rather inquisitive about the price of Rus- sian eggs — but he gets away with it. His dancing and drum- ming are quite popular at Manual — they are right in time. Elsie Biley—X good looking brunette and Irish — believe it or not. Was so curious about high altitudes that she got her- self a tall fellow. A very good bookkeeper — that ' s why she ' s in the Business Girls ' club and is the Secretary of English VIII G. L.

Ed and Russ " know " each other. I ' onxt Sconce — A blonde and if you are in doubt as to his good looks glance to the right. Despite the theory opposites attract each other, that is not the case with Forest. Iron- Smutyan — Congenial and very much liked. A good student who has gone through Literature VIII. She has the true Manual spirit and exercises it at games. One of the reasons the Girls Glee club is good. Earl Smith — Sounds familiar — doesn ' t it? It is to a certain blonde in roll-room 205. Some one said Earl had another reason for being in History class besides History — Is that so, Earl? Max Spear — The last of his line. Remember his sisters? Max is a good student but he has a certain facility (or should we say idiosyncrasy) of side stepping all laborious jobs. Has high ambitions that he ' ll probably live up to. Assisted Mr. Finch with the stage for the class play. Mary Stevnmetz — is there a lot of noise at the football field when Mary is there? And Mary is " all there " at Manual, for she is willing to help in any school activity and she is pretty enough to put it over. Manual surely will miss her. Ernest SteinecTcer — One of Manual ' s most efficient commercial students. From what we hear he stays away from the girls. We wonder if Ernest gets his hair marcelled. The carpenter for the class play. lima Tacoma — The other and larger half-unit of Two things Manual students envy of lima are 1 waves and her ability to get away with it in 123. ■v natural Liked hv Irina Tacoma — The small and mighty half-unit of the January twins. Tin-re is something about her that makes Marie Miller like her — a lot of Manual ' s male representatives do the same. Has been invaluable to Manual. Masoma. SENIOR BOOSTER January Seniors Nadine Tate — The girl who always wears a smile. She has quite a time with a certain party in 217 A. It ' s too bad they don ' t get along. Richard Thompson — A really handsome athlete. Did a very good job of playing football and is well liked by his class- mates. We wonder who the. artist was who decorated his flashy cream-colored corduroy trousers. Albert Theur — One of those good-looking blond fellows that lives way down south. Albert finds certain attraction in South- port. Very quiet (when asleep). One of the few who knows how to behave. Helen. Vaughn — We admire her ability to think up jokes in Bookkeeping class. Has no mean talent for playing the piano. Very likeable. Joseph Van Demon — The radio wizard. He ' s rather quiet, but delights in teasing the fair sex nevertheless. President of the Science club. Harry Vinstein — This fellow has John Gilbert outclassed a mile. And that reminds us, — Harry surely lets the miles roll by in that green Oakland of his. To make this statement authentic, the first material witness will be a certain (almost said it) — she ' s a blonde anyway. Business committee for class play. Elizabeth Wegner — Old maid? No, indeed, even if she was Cousin Ann in the class play. Has a natural ability for sell- ing football tickets. We wonder to whom? Suggest funnels to her — ! A real loss to Manual.

As we started our high school career, the one pre- dominate thought was graduation, and our dulled preception failed to glimpse beyond that point. However, as graduation approaches our gleam of understanding has rapidly expanded until now we find ourselves upon the verge of a brilliant world ready for conquest. The daz- zling horizon has become brilliant with a vi- sion of higher Learning and profitable careers which are ours for the taking. In this large world of ours there are people who early in life set for themselves a specific and an easily obtained goal. When they reach the heights of their false ambition, they drop everything immediately and sit back with a smug and knowing smile to watch the rest of the world work on. However, the serenity of their minds soon becomes ruffled, and the pros- pects do no! take on such a rosy hue, for it is well known that an idle mind turns to evil thoughts, and that condition is bound to end in disaster. Bearing this in mind the January 1930 class, in planning to prevent such a crisis, chose a very appropriate motto — " This far and farther. " Later in life when a. tendency to slow down is experienced, it is hoped this motto will constantly flash before our minds, and prod us on to everlasting advancement. Charles Stallwood, Editor. PLEDGE For the modernistic cover design which dis- plays our class color, pansy, so effectively, the class is indebted to Dorothy Davids, who also designed the panels. The modernistic type of art work is symbolic of the spirit of the Janu- ary 1930 class, hence is quite appropriate. Although the general trend of this entire Booster is toward that which is modern, still we feel sure that the class which this produc- tion represents will measure up to the high standards set by the previous classes. We realize that we express ourselves in a modern way; that our habits and mannerisms are mod : era. In spite of this fact we feel that at heart we represent as much loyalty, school spirit, and ability to succeed as the alumni, who are waiting to welcome us into their ranks. Alvin Brehob. Associate Editor. n SENIOR BOOSTER ivy day Charles Ayres As the years roll on and as incidents bring back to us our old schooldays at Manual, may this page bring back to us the afternoon of November 13, 1929, when we, the class of January 1930, gave our presentation of Manual ' s traditional Ivy Day. Through the mists of years may Ave again see in detail that wonderful program. After the processional march by the class the stage curtains are drawn and as a most litting centerpiece is the beautiful class banner made by Naomi Cornell and bearing the class motto, " This Far and Farther " . The program opens with the reading of the Ivy Poem by Catherine Wollam. AVe are now entertained with musical selections by Fred Niedenthall, Charles Henzie, Dorothy Fuller, and Esther Fields. The Ivy Song is brought to us by a group of the senior girls. Again we see Cedric White as he presents the ivy to Mr. McComb, who accepts the January ivy and gives the class his interpretation of our class motto. The class president, Cedric White, presents the silver trowel to Wilbur Harris, president of the June 1930 class. We hear the musical strains of the class song being sung by the class as the curtains again are drawn upon this program. While our thoughts are still with this occasion, we remember that little plant of ivy and its significance — that as the ivy, our aim was to grow and ever be stretching out for new and greater things in life. And we question, have we fulfilled the ivy ' s traditions? IVY DAY SONG Dorothy Pavey This day as we plant the ivy, Our thoughts move back o ' er years, To remember how our school days Were mixed with joys and tears. And as we revive our memories, Someday Ave ' ll do the same, And remember this November As a part of Life ' s big game. We may, later, pass old Manual, To see our ivy vine, Growing there among the others, And beautified by time. But now we plant our ivy, We, the January Class, To represent our youth, and To grow as Time will pass !

A rather im- aginative phrase, 1 must admit, but one that is applicable to the experiences encountered by the members of the January 1930 class during the time spent in high school. You wish to hear the story? Certainly! Well, the January 1930 class was a select group of young girls and boys delegated by their parents and the world to gain a foot- hold on life. It was decided that the only way in which these youngsters would be able to gain a foothold would be for them to get some experience. So they were sent off to Emmerich Manual Training High School, or rather Engi- neering School, to obtain a bit of that valuable quality at Manual. Consulting Engineer McComb told them that the world, with all its joys and comforts, was open before them, but that the one obstacle in their path was a liugh mountain, known as Experience, and that it would be necessary to dig a tunnel through that mountain. Tlje plan sounded rather child- ish to the class, but they soon changed their point of view. They were taken out to the mountain which was situated in a quiet coun- tryside, surrounded by large fields, and in- habited by simple country folk. The class was then left with provisions and working imple- ments, but they were not given any instruc- tion on the digging of the tunnel. It was to be entirely their project. I never shall forget the awed and perplexed look on their faces when they first faced the mountain. But not long did they remain in this trance. The January 1930 class started in on the side of that mountain with the will and determination that characterized them throughout the entire digging of the tunnel. Two -years passed, and more than half of their subterranean passage had been dug. Every day, every week, those hoys and girls realized more and more the value f hard Labor, for they actually did work hard. Every night after theft " work, each member of the class would prepare plans for the next day ' s dig ging. Finally at the end of the third year, on that day of days, the tunnel was completed, and the class stood for the first time on the other side of .the mountain with the world spread before them. And it was then that Eleanor Grow uttered that famous phrase, " This far and farther, " that every one of the class used as his motto. Here is an inscrip- tion of it on the block above the door. Carries a lot of meaning, doesn ' t it? Well, as I was saying, the -January 1930 class had completed the digging of the tunnel, hut they had yet to prove that their tunnel would not collapse. They had yet to show that their work was substantial. So they organized themselves as a class of engineers. Cedric White was chosen as the chief engineer with Alvin Brehob as his as- sistant, June Kempf was elected to keep a record of their labors, and Charles Henzie was delegated to control their meager income. And with their own leaders to inspire them, the -January 1930 class set out to prove that their tunnel was safe and solid. In a half a year they took inventory. Cedric White and Alvin Brehob were reappointed as chief engineers, Irma Seitz was chosen as their scribe, and diaries Henzie was left alone to hoard their li nances. I shall never forget the day when Consulting Engineer McComb, Miss Brady, and Miss Moore came down to the tunnel and after a very thorough inspection pronounced it perfect. And then those youngsters certainly did have a party. But just before they began their festivities, the class planted an ivy vine at the entrance of the tunnel, which would grow and grow up the side of the mountain and would serve as a reminder to futu re genera- tions of how the January 1930 class strived and worked their way upward until they ac- complished their mission. Charles Stallwood Avas appointed to compile a record of the class, containing a personal ac- count of each member and of all the activities of the class. They called it their Senior Booster, for they certainly were a group of boosters. Naomi Cornell presented the class with a beautiful banner. It had a dark background with the class motto inscribed upon it in silver letters. Well, after their solemn ceremonies, the class prepared a large feast and many sorts of en- tertainment were planned. They appointed Harold Strait as prophet, Harold Horwitz, as giftorian, and Roger Minor as willmaker. An invitation to attend the party was sent out to the entire countryside, and the country folk at- tended ' -en masse. " The willmaker, prophet, and giftorian were called upon, and those boys certainly did prophesize the most unheard-of tilings. (Continued page 17) 16 SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS Charles Friday, December 13 — unlucky? By no means! For all the January ' 30 class knew that old man " bad luck " must have been on the otherside of the world. For us it was a night of joy and excitement — the night of the presentation of " Mother Carey ' s Chickens. " The play was written by Kate Douglas Wig- gins and Rachel Crothers. It is the story of a mother and her children who look to Kings- ley ' s " Water Babies ' ' as sort of a family bible. As the time drew near for the curtain, actors were getting the finishing touches to their make-up, and stage hands were adding finishing- touches to the settings. For a second after the musical strains of the overture had died out, there was a hushed silence while the audi- ence and stage awaited the chime that an- nounced the beginning of one of the most suc- cessful plays ever presented at Manual. The first act was in the living room of the Yellow House in Beulah where Mrs. Carey has brought her family. During this act Gilbert and Nancy, the two older children, discovered that the house did not belong to the man who had sold it to them, but that it had been willed to his son. They intend to keep this informa- tion a secret from the family as they love their new home. The second act was in the same room a month later, but greatly changed by the Careys and their neighbors. In this act they were decorating the house for a party to be given that evening. During this scene Tom Hamil- ton, the real owner of the house, arrives and meets Nancy. Scene two of this act showed the party given that night. Tom and Nancy have become very much interested in each other. During the party Tom is told that the house belongs to him; a trouble maker tells him that Nancy is in love with Ralph Thurston. At the end of the act he leaves without telling Nancy good- bye. The third act takes us to the barn of the Yellow House, a month later. Tom has come back and all misunderstandings have been straightened out. Tom offers his heart and the house to Nancy. The play ends with every- one happy and having a jolly dance in the barn. While Miss Lola Perkins and Mrs. Williams were busy drilling the actors into an all star cast, many committees and individuals were busy with the technical side of the play. pl Ay Ayres Mr. Finch and his assistants were busy plan- ning settings, working out the lighting system, painting scenery, and building a barn. During the period of training, the boys learned much about stage procedure and quick changing of scenery. Much of the work was dirty and tire- some, but the stage hands enjoyed it all. Mrs. Williams and her property committee were busy making flowers, planning detail work on the settings, and collecting boxes, barrels, furniture, and lanterns. Miss Denny ' s art committee served as the interior decorators. Between the first and second acts the committee members showed their skill at fast paper hanging. The designing of the costumes was in charge of Mrs. Hiner. Miss Sehaefer gave service by seeing that all costume designs were carried out. Much thanks is due to Miss Brady, Miss Singleton, Miss Haynes, Miss West, Miss Denny and the publicity committee for the clever way in which the play was advertised. One of the best of the many original schemes was the chicken posters advertising the play. Miss Brady, assisted by a committee of stu- dents, was responsible for " The Chirp, " a class play bulletin. Miss Haynes ' salesmanship class furnished many daily features, including an issue of a mimeographed bulletin, chicken feathers for the seniors to wear, armbands showing the " The Little Yellow House, " and small banners for the actors to wear. Many other services were rendered by teach- ers and individuals who helped to make " Mother Carey ' s Chickens " such a great suc- cess. To all those who helped in putting the play over a vote of thanks is hereby accorded, and especially to Miss Perkins and Mrs. Williams do the January seniors extend many thanks in appreciation.

For four years Alex Burris has been one of the outstanding athletes in Manual. In football Alex has especially distinguished himself, having starred in the baektield for the last three years. During the past two seasons he lias made himself especially felt and was given a position on the all-city eleven. In his senior year he was elected captain of the team. On the diamond Alex has displayed the same ability which lias made him stand out on the gridiron. Having the responsibility of captain resting upon his shoulders, he made a very creditable showing in the left garden during the past season. It will be hard to find another man to fill his shoes. Thompson ' . Richard Thompson confined his athletic activities to football while at Manual. " Dick " played guard and many times his deadly tackles made opposing baektield give up in despair. He was kept out of action this season because of injuries. Linson. Ray reported for football this fall for the first time. Making up for lost time he succeeded in making the varsity. He played halfback and could always be depended upon to smash off-tackle or skirt the ends for sub- stantial gains. Linson surely made his pres- ence felt on the football field. Eitel. Eugene Eitel was captain of the freshman basketball team and his basketball career looked bright. He was at that time forced to drop basketball for two years because of defective eyesight. Now he is back and is making a very strong bid for the first five. Axdkik. During his high school career Mike has devoted his time to track and cross-country running. lie ran the mile in track and could usually be depended upon for points in this event. In cross-country running Mike has given a good account of himself and has always finished among the leaders. Mike has always put forth his best efforts for Manual in any athletic event. Auki.max. Ottneel has been one of Coach Moffat ' s mainstays on the tennis team for the past two years. Adelman could always be de- pended upon and has consistently won his share of the matches. BkodSKY.

" It met with un- bounded success. In fact, it was pronounced one of the theatrical successes of the year. Amid festivities the January 1930 class of Emmerich Manual Training High School was ushered into the world. They completed their course of study only after hard and conscien- tious work. With the firm conviction that Eleanor Crow ' s " This far and farther " was a very good motto with which to begin life in the outside world, the members of the class have bv this time surmounted many obstacles. 18 SENIOR B O H T E R Roines Club Spanish CJvh RadSc GtMzJb SENIOR H O s t i: It Girls Glee Clwh SENIOR BOOSTER H.1T.S.
