R. Clayton Roll Room Teacher Mr. Harry Painter Ivy Day Sponsor Miss Dorothy Perkins Class Day Sponsor Our Artists The block print which appears on the title page of this Booster was designed and cut in a linoleum Mock by Grace Kramer. This print was designed in accordance with the pattern of the class banner which is symbolic of the class motto, " Forward Ever, Backward Never ' . Forward Ever, Backward Never When it came time for the June 1931 seniors to choose their motto, what idea was behind their decision to select the motto " Forward Ever. Backward Never ' ? We all are acquainted with the history of the western migration, how our ancestors looked forward to the West, and how they had to undergo countless hardships, snch as the perils of transportation by covered wagon. So it was witli this idea in mind that we used this plan in our Senior Booster and also took it as a symbol on our class banner. This western movement has been praised and admired by all successive generations, and it is the character of this stalwart group of people, who crossed the continent in their covered wagons, whom we wish to emulate when we leave the doors at Man- ual. Appreciation In this small way the June seniors wish to ex- press to the faculty their appreciation. Mr. Clayton, our roll room teacher, and Mss Knox, our class sponsor, have faithfully guided us through the last year of our high school career. Miss Lola Perkins, assisted by Miss Webster, coached the east of the class play and made this event a success. Mr. Finch handled the stage. doing his part to make the play successful. To these persons we owe a great debt of gratitude. Miss Izor and Mr. Davis helped with the ban- ner which was displayed on Ivy Day. Fred Vehling, who designed the banner, says that without this earnest assistance it would never have been completed. When Mr. Painter was chosen Ivy Day spon- sor, he set to work and prepared an interesting program. For the last senior activity Miss Dorothy Perkins was chosen Class Day sponsor, and she worked diligently for a good pro- gram. This spirit of cooperation manifested by all these teachers shall not be forgotten by the June 1931 seniors. Another part of the art work connected with the Senior Booster was successfully done by Theodore Bluemel who did the intricate lettering of the panels containing the senior pictures. He also drew the clever cartoon which appears at the head of the autograph page. The staff ap- preciates the work these two have done to make this a successful Booster. 90 SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS PLAY -THE OPTIMIST ' LOUISE WEILAND The night of April 10. 1931, found a large au- dience awaiting impatiently for the curtain to vise in the Manual auditorium for a play to begin. A1 last a peal of church bells, the merry song iL ' a bird, and a cheery cock-a-doodle-clo were heard in the distance. The curtains part- ed, and tlie play was on. Never were seen three acts of more spicy comedy and dashing ro- mance. The audience sat alternately rocking with laughter and chuckling with delight as " The Optimist " was unraveled before them. What an audience! What a play! What a cast! When the curtain went down and the ap- plause of the spectators rang our success, not one minute of practicing and rehearsing, not one word of reproof or correction, not one ticket bought oi- sold was regretted. It had gone over! It was a grand success. But who would think it could he otherwise with such a cast, such a coach and such a class of supporters. For weeks before the final per- formance the east met regularly every afternoon after school and with the aid of Miss Lola Per- kins and Miss Webster they put forth their best efforts to make the class play of June 1931 a triumph. And how well they succeeded! Theo- dore Bluemel as the absent-minded, sunny tem- pered vicar could warm a heart of the coldest steel. And Minty ! AVho could resist her? No one. At least not when Dorothy Strait took the part of tlie humorous, lovable housemaid. Thelma Kotli made an appealing performance as the lovely, adorable Paulette. Her French made you sit up and listen and her clothes — la, la — bow chic! William Spacke as the handsome hero made many a heart beat faster and he made Waverly a dashing, fine character that cannot be forgotton. Virginia Hildebrand as Laetitia and Fred Vehling as Adrian were delightful and did some splendid acting. Carl Zike as Hie " speedy " gardner made a big hit. Donald Rugenstein took the part of Sir Marcus, the stern father, undeniably well, and ( ' lenient Wes- sel made a good postman — flirting instead of flitting. Yet it must be remembered that much of the success of the " Optimist " was due to the faith- ful workers behind the scenes. Especially are we indebted to Miss Lola Perkins and Miss Vivi- an Webster for their able guidance and to Air. Lewis Finch for his unfailing managing. While the actors were walking nervously re- viewing their cues, it was up to the stage hands and the members of the property committee to liave each piece of furniture, each needed article, in its proper position on the stage before the cur- tain rose on the first act. They worked silently and efficiently and everything went off without a " hitch. " Thelma Jacobs and her property girls did exceptionally well holding props and SENIOR B OOSTER 23 assisting actresses in their quick changes. Mr. Fiui h and his boys worked hours mi the sta«i ' c before the big event. The settings pro- duced gave evidence of their labor and thought. The position of each picture was studied out lie- fore the best and final decision was made. Each chair was placed at exactly the right angle and each ornament was put in the spot where it show- ed off to the best advantage. The effect was both artistic and interesting. The two settings, the parlor and the garden of the vicarage, lent a charming, cozy atmosphere to the play which aided the actors iu their performance. The paint- ing over the mantle in the parlor scene did much to add to the beauty and harmony of the scene and many interested spectators would have been surprised had they known that Mr. Finch made it in a few hours on request. Also the assistant stage manager, Martin Conaway, is to be praised for Ins resourceful work in this and previous class plays, lie well deserves the honor of the hiuhert position the organization behind the cur- tains can offer to any student. The other boys did fine, hard work, and they are to be congrat- ulated on the scenery which they painted- something different from the usual thing. In the dressing rooms there was work to be done also. This was done thoroughly by Miss Schaefer. who took charge of the costumes, and by Mr. Davis, and Miss Denny who made-up the players.

It was not a foolish notion as children of that age often do take, but a very wise one: namely, to enter the one and only Emmerich Manual Training High School and get the low down on things they aever learned in grade school. • • Full Hedged freshies! What lengthy corri dors, what a layout of rooms, and what an army of teachers! Those little lads and lassies soon got over their awe and amazement after they had been at good old M. T. a week or two. No, they didn ' t act as smart as those trick playing sophomores, or as - ' questionable " as those jun- iors, or as dignified and wise as those seniors, but they fell like old timers nevertheless. • A year has gone by, and what a difference! No longer bashful, blushing freshies, but sopho- mores. Sophomores are all alike, and this hunch was no exception. They wise-cracked, they chewed Wrigley (or what have you), they play- ed tricks on freshmen, and flunked math just as their predecessors had done. But don ' t let me mislead you, for even if they had most of the aforesaid traits, it was already being shown that in this group there were some of the leaders of the school so far as scholastic ability was concern- ed. Remarkable grades, the snatching of a To]) Ten pin or two, the representation in scholastic contests, and the interest shown in athletics all prove the previous statement. We wonder what such an outfit will turn out to be! • Another year, and with it another advance- ment which gives them the title, " Juniors. " ' What changes time does bring! This band of children (or should I now say ladies and gentle- men) arc no longer racking their brains for ideas on how to torture freshmen, how to cut classes, or to get part times. They are really getting down to business and are working for the goal, " Seniordom. " • And would you believe that these selfsame folks turned out to be none other than — " We, the Jun " I ' lass of 1931. " But what good is such a group without a leader? With Miss Knox kindly assisting until Ave could choose a leader, we elected on October 7, 1930, Kenneth Hibner as our class president. As his chief assistants we chose Anthony Lee for vice-president ; Ger- trude Zorn, secretary; and Mary Fuller, class treasurer. Let me list other important features of our business meetings during the first semester of our " Senior Monarchy. " 1 will begin with dates, for all good ( 1) histories have them. On October 24, we chose for our class color a beautiful shade of orange. Deciding to make im- mediate use of the color, we chose, on October 27, an artistic arm band design, submitted by Earl Huff, using the aforesaid color in the print. Then came a catastrophe, for on the same date the author was chosen Historian. On Novem- ber 12, we chose as Prophet, Fred Brant ; Will- maker, Thelma Roth; and as Class Giftorian, John King. " Forward Ever, Backward Never, " which was submitted by Fannie Goldstein, was chosen as the class motto on January 12, 1931. For Class Day sponsor Miss Dorothy Perkins was chosen by the class. Thus endeth our first semester as seniors. This paragraph begins a new semester, and on February 2 and 3 the election of officers for the spring term took place. Kenneth was immedi- ately re-elected to the class presidency and Mark Armour was chosen vice-president. Ger- trude Zorn and Mary Fuller were re-elected to the respective offices of secretary and treasurer. For editor-in-chief of the Senior Booster, Miio Haines was chosen and AVilliam Faust was nam- ed business manager. On February 4, Mr. Painter was elected Ivy Day sponsor, with Mildred Gonter as chairman of the Ivy Day committee. On March 9 the class banner was chosen. Out of the nine banners submitted, Fred Vehling ' s design was selected. It pictured a covered wag- on, characteristic of the days of 1849, " making the grade " — a suitable design to symbolize the class motto. On March 10, the class voted that the Nation- al Studio should be the photographer for indi- vidual class pictures. It was decided that Ed- win Beeson should have his picture taken last, for a broken camera could not do the rest of the class justice. Since all the former senior classes produced a class play, far be it from the June 1931 class to fail in that respect. " The Optimist " , a de- (Continued on Pane 26) SENIOR BOOSTER _.- PROPHECY FRED BRANT I, tin- prophet of the class of Juno 1931, hav- ing been endowed with a certain vague occult power (whatever that may be) of gazing- into the distant future, do herewith set forth for your approval a number of our fellow classmates as they appear ten years hence. I may add that this strange, mysterious power is mine primarily because (if a majority vote of the class in ques- tion. Kenneth llibner, our very distinguished pres- ident, is now owner and operator of a filling sta- tion in that thriving young city known as Pa- ducah, Kentucky. Edwin Beeson and his assistants. Duane James, Harry Glynn, ami Richard Kottkamp, have organized a flag pole corporation the pur- pose of which is to sell apples to airplanes. This is a great help in relieving the unemployment situation, and is highly profitable as the custo- mers have no time to wait for change. Nathan Bornstein, who is remembered for his many fiery speeches in History classes and else- where, is now a very efficient barker with Ring- ling Brothers circus. Anthony Lee, the world famous inventor, has received his patent for his latest invention which is an automatic device for the purpose of re- moving one ' s gum from one ' s mouth to the waste paper basket. This would have been very popular with Retha Mae Smith and Anna Jen- sen ten years earlier and much shoe leather would have been saved for these two girls. Clarice Arford, Virginia Hildebrand, and Margaret Seitz have just finished a tour of Eu- rope where they were very enthusiastically re- ceived by vast crowds everywhere. Vivian Fox is the new dancing instructor at the Indiana Ballroom. Her assistants are Paul Kritsch, Gertrude Kirk, Louise Weiland, and Rolland Woodrum. Earl Huff, the internationally known archi- tect, has just finished plans for a new White House at " Washington and is about to begin plans for a palace for Ghandi, the new ruler of India. Robert Smith, that pugnacious young athlete, is getting prepared to defend his world cham- pionship Pleaweight title against Eddie Fox at Madison Square Gardens, June 22. Laura McMahon has recently signed a contract with the Fox company. She has taken the place of Betty Bronson, advertising for soap. Alvin Huebner is making radio talks on the value of baseball in the development of modern youth. Richard Dietz is the winner of the Pyle Bun- ion Derby. Phil Davis was a close second. Donald Rugenstein is giving Milo Haines a terrific struggle in an effort to win Milo ' s title as the screen ' s greatest lover. William Faust is tennis coach at Culver Mil- itary Academy. Israel Simon, is having his nps and downs as usual. He is one of the elevator boys in tile new Chrysler building in New York City. A visitor to the University of Columbia shows in the far cornel ' s of a classroom Derhardt Ex- ner and Waldo Lyons. After all these years of patience and strife they have finally reached their senior year in college and have high am- bitions of graduating in the next few years. Theodore Bhiemel and Mildred Gonter are holding evangelistic services in their new $1,000.- 000 church in Boston. Thelnia Roth was recently made Sales Man- ager of L. S. Ayres and Company. Othollo Jones, winner of the nation-wide Per- sonality Contest conducted by the Scripps-How- ard newspapers, lias just recently refused a Fox movietone contract. It must be her artistic temperament. Mark Armour has made a small fortune in the newspaper game and lias settled down to a cpiiet, peaceful, domestic life. He had consid- ered an offer to become head basketball coach at Purdue but decided it would be too dull and uninteresting for a person of his superior coach- ing ability. And now, my dear friends, enemies and fel- low classmates, I feel that I must stop. This prophecy has afforded me more pleasure than it could ever have given you, for I have been per- mitted to call anyone anything. I am safe from harm, for I have only prophesied through the power given me by the members of this June 1931 o■radllatillo■ class. 26 SENIOR BOOSTER IVY DAY GEORGIA BRIER Ivy Day ! These words bring ' back memories, memories that will never fade, though they be of yesterday. AVe can still see, oh so plainly, that elass of ours marching down the aisles of the auditorium and watching the progress of the program presented May 11, in celebration of the planting of the .June 1931 y Vine. Sponsored by Mr. Painter with the help of Mildred Gonter, Gertrude Zorn, Harry Wong, Charles Yeager, William Marney and John King, the program was well received. AVhile we took our places, the orchestra, di- rected by Mr. Winslow, played a march. Then before the curtains we beheld our class banner, designed by Fred Vehling. It was made of orange velvet trimmed with silver and black; the design showed a covered wagon crossing a hill, and at the bottom in beautiful black letters was our motto " Forward Ever, Backward Nev- er " . Thelma Parsons, the girl who saw that the banner was properly made, stood beside it and placed it in the standard. Then we were seated and the program began. Tony played by Theodore Blummel, author of the sketch, was seen tending his little flower shop. His first customer was Israel Simon as an Italian who wished a flower for his wife. To pay for the flower he played a solo on his beloved vio- lin, and what could be more pleasing than that old melody, " 0 Sole Mio " . Then entered a young girl, Othollo Jones, who does not seem to be able to rind the flower she wants, but when she does find one at Tony ' s shop she says that she is so happy she could dance. To the great pleasure of everyone she tap danced. Then a poor little boy, portrayed by John King, came to beg a flower for his mother who is sick. Tony decides to give him one if he will entertain us. This he does, and with what other than his harmonica. He plays a medley of three numbers — " Memories, " " School Days " and, while he tap danced, " Sidewalks of New York " . He is given a flower for his service and goes hap- pily on his way. Next appeared a young man, Carl Zike, and oh such a young man! As he was quite colleg- iate he had his saxaphone with him and really forced his music upon the audience. Much to our distress ' ' Lizzie ' ' caused quite a disturbance at the beginning but a purse, a handkerchief and a compact were found in the saxaphone ! No wonder the notes were not so harmonizing ! How- ever, Carl did play, " The World is Waiting for the Sunrise " which everyone enjoyed. Of course, he must have a flower while he is in the shop. Now our president, Kenneth Hibner, together with two friends, Clement Wessel and Fred Veh- ling, come upon the scene ! They are in search of an Ivy Vine to be planted by the June 1931 class at Manual. It seems that it has been im- possible for the boys to find a worthy vine, but Tony has one which proves to be a beauty. Cle- ment Wessel. writer of the Ivy poem, then reads it to the class and Fred Vehling croons the mel- ody, " Out of Nowhere " . The curtains are drawn on this little play and part two of the program begins. Here Kenneth Hibner, our worthy president, presents the Ivy Vine to Mr. McComb who accepts it and gives the class his interpretation of our motto. He gave an interesting talk on the idea of high ideals being our ever forward aim in life. At the close of his speech Margaret Seitz, the auth- or of the Ivy Song, played that beautiful melody and all the seniors joined in. Clyde Crafton, the January 1931 class president, then accepted the silver trowel and gave his promise to carry on with the Ivy Ceremony next semester. The program ended by everyone singing ' ' On Manu- al " . The program is over and we march from the auditorium with a feeling of having paid a worthy tribute to the dearest and best school we have ever known. CLASS HISTORY (Continued from Par c 2 i ) lightful comedy drama, was chosen to fill the bill. And let me tell you something — Miss Lola Per- kins is right there when it comes to selecting •rood class plays and producing them success- fully. May 8 was set for Ivy Day and May 22 for Class Day, in charge of Miss Dorothy Perkins. Those who served on the Class Day committee were Carl Hagenmaier, Milo Haines, William Spacke, Alberta Peffley and Thelma Roth. Af- ter the program the customary Class Day dance was held. Since this is about the last event in our class history, I must say, — " Here endeth the history of the June class of 1931, and may our days at Manual be our fondest memories. " SENIOR BOOSTER SENIOR ATHLETICS HARRY WONG Mark Armour devoted three seasons to basketball while at Manual. lie played forward and floor guard with the var- sity the last two years. Not only another Johnny Wooden as a dribbler but the scrap- piest little player on the team. Mark also offered his service to the tennis team and per- formed brilliantly on the court. Edwin Beeson played one year of freshman, two years of second team, and one year of varsity basketball. Ed was a dependable pivot man, and his tip-in shots spelled defeat for many opponents. Ed proved his ability as a golfer by winning a letter in this sport. Coach Boese ' s mainstay for the last two seasons. Fred Brant was a forward with the net snip- ers for two years. lie played varsity ball last season and was high point man in some games. Fred played second and third base for two years on the baseball team and always did his best. Anthony Lee was a consistent ground gainer on the football team. His excellent mental atti- tude earned him the captaincy of the team last year. Tony is a natural born leader. He de- veloped into a deadly tackier, and won a place on the all-city eleven. Duane James was Coach Painter ' s halfback last year. He played two years of baseball and was a slugging center fielder. Rolland Woodrum decided to do something for Manual, so he turned out for football last year. Roly played end and tackle. He was a defensive player and stopped many of the oppo- nents ' charges. Roly was a shot putter with the track squad during his senior year. John Lain also played guard on the football team last semester. He engaged in second string and varsity competition. Albert Sham was a guard on the football squad. Al was always in the thick of the bat- tle. His services are greatly appreciated. Alvin Huebner developed into a stellar second baseman. He served one year under Coach STUDENT MANAGERS Top Row — Robert Coomler. Robert Hiutt, Clayton Burres. Lower Row — Evans Miller. LaVauglut Brabevdcr. Richard Brier. Skinner and two years under Coach Williams. Al handled second base with such skill and consistency that his ab- sence next year will be great- ly felt. Harold Schultz was a third baseman on the baseball team for one year, lie was an ef- ficient performer. AVilliam Faust was a rac- quet wielder with Coach Mof- fat ' s tennis team. Bill play- ed three years and won sev- eral matches. Bill is one fel- low who took tennis seriously and always put up a good bat- tle. Harry Wong played fresh- man basketball, football, and also won the track medal giv- en by the Roines during his freshman year. Lh- also ran the mile and half mile for three seasons with the thinly clads. Ankie ' s cross country runner the last two seasons. Paul Kritsch ran the mile and half mile with the thinly-clads for two years. He also partici- pated in two seasons of cross-countrv running. Paul was dependable and always could bellied on for points. John King is small, but how he can run! An- kie ' s cross-country runner for two years, and the mightiest little performer on the squad. Henry Hasse turned out for track for two seasons. He high jumped and broad jumped for the squad. Hank displayed real form. Harold Stofer spent one season on cross-coun- try and one season in track. He ran the quarter mile and the relays with the tracksters. Harold has unlimited ability as a runner. Charles Yager distinguished himself by his all-round gymnastic performances.

In our efforts to make our Booster different, a block print lias been used for the first time. The print is that of ;i ship which represents our motto, " Launched Not Anchored " and shows the January 1931 class ready to start oiil on its journey through life. Shades of green arc used on (lie cover because green was selected for the class color. The title page has also been decorated with a block print which was designed and cut by Edwin Thompson. He, also, had the motto in mind when lie cut this ship (lesion. Edwin, however, thought of the January 1! ' U class as plowing through the waves after a success- ful launching. Nellie and Edwin are both members of Miss Denny ' s advance ] art class. It was through Miss Denny ' s kind assistance and cooperation that they were able to accomplish such a fine piece of work. LAUNCHED NOT ANCHORED Soon the first launching of our great ship, the January 1.931 class, will take place. Since we lirst began building our ship, we have looked forward to this, our lirst launching. We have built our ship strongly so that it may well withstand the rough weather, the gales and storms that it will encounter in the great sea of life. For four years we have been building our ship. It is made of the best of materials and is bound by the strong ties of fellowship. Many old and new shipbuilders have encouraged and helped us through the difficult work. When we had completed our ship, it was inspected by experienced shipbuilders who proclaimed it well built for the launching and ready for our great journey. After the inspection our valiant admiral, aided by our two brave captains, gave us all the liner points in commanding a ship. Our captains will be present at our final launching and will give us our last instructions. Al- though they can not personally accompany us on our voyage, they will always be with us in memory. When we are once launched, we will plow our way through the sea with the strength and the power we have gained here. We will prove ourselves worthy ship officers profiting by the instructions given us by our admiral and cap tains. We will continue our journey until we can no longer make a voyage. Then we will anchor our ship in some happy harbor and look hack with a smile on our laces to the dav when we were " Launched Not Anchored. " In a few more days we January seniors must say farewell to Manual and leave the school where we have spent sonic of the greatest mo- ments of our lives. For four years we have looked forward to the time when we would earn enough credits to he graduated, but now that the time is actually here, it seems to have lost a great deal of its charm. It stems as if we have just now become acquainted and have just begun to enjoy ourselves. Now we must move onward and face new obstacles and sur- mount new difficulties. DEDICATION We, the January lit. !! seniors, dedicate this Booster to our able captains, Miss Moore and .Miss Brady. This is our expression of thanks for their skillful leadership dining the past two semesters. 11 S E X I O R BOOSTER Once There Was A Princess " ( :ELKSTINE SACKMAN The class play of the January 1931 class deserved every bit of commendation which it received. The January seniors feel that they have left in the hearts of Manualites, memo- ries of a play that will linger forever. No one could doubt that ' ■ ' Once There Was a Princess ' ' was a huge success. It was the story of a Princess who became homesick for her little home-town of Millertown, Indiana. In the prologue a very dignified Signor Moroni and a charming Princess Dellatorre are seen seated in the drawing room of the Palazzo Dellatorre in Rome. The Princess is renouncing the estate left her by her deceased husband, Prince Alfredo. Looking very state- ly in her royal robes, the mother of Prince Alfredo enters, and the young Princess leaves the estate to her. The first act takes place in the sitting room of the Boyd residence, in Millertown, Indiana, one early summer morning. Mrs. Boyd and her youngest daughter. Hazel, are preparing the house for the arrival of the princess, who is the niece of Mrs. Boyd. She was born in this little town where she was known as Ellen Guthrie. Then she had married the Prince and had gone to live in his palace in Rome. The Princess arrives but is mistaken for the sewing woman whom Mrs. Boyd has hired to help her. The town had been expecting a gor- geous creature to be the Princess, but Ellen arrived in ordinary clothes. In this act Phil Lennox, who is considered a worthless loafer by the majority of the town inhabitants, recog- nizes the sewing lady as the Ellen whom he loved in former days. Phil has been living in a barn and trying to perfect a window washer. When Phil and Ellen are alone, they tell each other that they have never, never forgotten their love of former days. Little Hazel Boyd likes Phil very much and frequently gives him cakes and pies. Aunt Meta Trimble, who is living with the Boyds because Joe Boyd lost so much of her money, discovers that some sugar cookies are gone. Phil had been washing the windows, and Aunt Meta decides that he has stolen them. To pro- tect Hazel, Phil says that he took the cookies and then leaves. Act two takes place in the same house later in the morning. In this act, Uncle Joe Boyd recognizes his niece. She explains to him that her husband had spent all her money and that she is now poor. She tells him that she can not tell Millertown who she is, because it would disappoint them so. Aunt Meta be- lieves that the sewing woman has a very bad reputation when she is discov ered talking to Phil and also to Joe. Aunt Meta has Mrs. Boyd send Ellen away. Joe announces that he will go too, and Aunt Kate does not know what to think of her husband. Act three shows Ruby, the older daughter of the Boyds, dressed in a very lovely gown which the sewing lady has given her. She looks very pretty, and Milton D ' Arey, a suc- cessful young man, is telling her so. The Princess has arrived, and a reception has been SENIOR BOOS T E K IT. given her at the Town Hall. She enters the Boyd home with her host, and many of the neighbors are present to see her. She acts just as she knows the little town wants her to. She is dressed in lovely clothes and jewels, and is wearing a wig. No one recognizes her as the little sewing lady. After she has greeted the ladies, she tells them how much she has appreciated the reception. Aunt Meta announces that it is time that they were all in bed and that she will not stay up any longer for anybody. Ellen ;isks where Phil is and Aunt Meta tells her to forget him because he is just a loafer. The guests leave and Joe and Ellen talk about Phil, when they are left alone. Aunt Meta comes back into the room after Joe has left to find Phil. She tells the Princess that she would not care about Phil if she knew the scandal that was spreading through the town about the sewing woman and him. She discovers that Ellen was the sewing woman, and realizes that the town will laugh at her when they find that the woman whom she has been slandering is really the Princess Della- torre. But Ellen tells her to stop the scandal and she will never let them know that she was Mrs. Arden, the sewing woman. After Aunt Meta retired, Joe comes back with Phil who is dressed very well. He tells Joe that the Wadsworth Company has accepted his invention. Joe tells him that an old friend is waiting to see him and then leaves. Phil turns around and finds Ellen waiting for him. They decide to leave the little town before it linds that she is not a wealthy princess, and they agree that a little home in Italy would be ideal. Especially do we thank Miss Perkins and Miss Webster for directing the play, and con- tributing so much to its success. The Cast Princess Dellatorre Marjorie A.

() () S T E K CLASS HISTOMY Thelma Bieiil As we, the January seniors of 1931, were nearing the eud of our four years ' cruise, I hastened to my state room to pack my be- longings and a few old curios collected during the trip, which consisted of some thirty credits, some old report cards, and a few Senior Boosters, filled with signatures of my class- mates. While collecting my possessions, I be- gan to recollect what had taken place in the past four years while I had been a passenger on the S. S. Manual. 1 walked over to the port-hole in my cabin and looked out upon the boundless ocean. Each wave seemed to bring to my mind old memories of the past. As 1 started day-dreaming, the whole scene of the four years spent on board the ship passed be- fore me in retrospect. 1 thought especially of our admiral, .Mr. McComb, and how much the success of the trip had depended upon him. There, also, were our two vice admirals, .Miss .Moore and .Miss Brady, who had so willingly offered their as- sistance in the hist year of our trip. After these few minutes of reminiscing, 1 returned to my unfinished job of packing. On lop of one of my traveling bags lay an old Senior Booster of June, l ' . 27. While I thumbed the pages of this Booster, I realized that we had begun our trip as freshmen one afternoon in January, L927. As freshmen, we had high ideals and ambitions, but it took more than one year for us to attain our goals. As sophomores, we were a little more con lident but even then we had many hardships and failures. .Many times our spirits were dampened, but we revived them by thinking of our motto: " We can, we must, we will. " When I returned to my packing again, I found tucked away in one corner of my trunk ■ in Honors Day program for June, I!). ! ); it told me that in our junior year two members of our class had received special honors. Eliza- beth Brouhard had received the I . A. R. medal for an essay which she had written on good citizenship. Donald .Moore had been awarded the Bruce Kobison medal for being outstanding in good citizenship as well as in scholarship. After all the recollecting I had been doing, the picture that presented itself most vividly to my mind was the day in January, 1930, when we first gathered as one large group of seniors in the ship ' s lounge known as room 217. Since we wanted our trip to end successfully. on February 21, we elected Carl llanna, cap- tain: Norman Frentress, commander; Bernice l.olin. log-keeper; and Kenneth Seitz. purser. It seems to me that our senior year was a rather busy one: each event seemed to rapidly follow the preceding one. Captain llanna started things moving immediately by appoint- ing two committees. Sagitta Lossin was ap- pointed chairman of the arm-band committee. The color committee consisted of Dolores Schlanzer, chairman; Betty Waiss and Mar- ian Lurie as her assistants. After much con sideration. on .March 26 we chose the beauti- ful arm-band designed by Adelaide Wberner. On March ! " .», we chose Nile green for our class color. We thought Nile green was a very ap- propriate color since we had been sailing the blue-green sea for the past four years. In the middle of the year, we again elected officers, Carl llanna was elected captain; Louis Krieger, commander; Marjorie A. Benson, log- keeper; and Kenneth Seitz. purser. Captain llanna appointed a banner commit tee and a motto committee. We chose the ban- ner designed by Marian Fisher and the motto " Launched No1 Anchored " submitted by Lavon Ilaynes. When we were within a few hundred knots of our poll, we decided to hold two festivals. Ivy Day and ( ' lass Day instead of the usual Captain ' s dinner. Mr. Ankenbrock was chosen sponsor for tiie Ivy Day program which was celebrated on November 20. We wished to leave behind us some living emblem of our courage ami striving, so we decided to leave an ivy vine that would grow and be a living emblem on the good ship Manual. We chose the Ivy Day song written by Vivian Allen and Margaret Rosenberg and the Ivy Day poem written by Edna Baier. About this time it was decided that we should leave behind us some record of our trav- els in the form of a book; therefore, we elected Teena. I ' ostma editor-in-chief of the Senior Booster, and Oscar Glazier, business manager. We dedicated this Senior Booster to Miss Moore and Miss Brady. During our travels we had not been aware of the fact that Ave had a princess on board our ship, but on December 11 and 12 we pre- sented the play " Once There Was a Princess " .

CLASS HISTORY (Continued from page 1 )) This play was very successfully given and much thanks is due to the cast, to the staff and (he coaches. Finally, on January It;, we gathered for our last festival which was Class Day. Miss AVeb- ster was chosen sponsor for this event. A very interesting and appropriate program was given. The class history was given by Tbelma Biehl, while a very truthful prophecy was given by John Passwater. Paul Dausch proved a very generous Will Maker in spite of his Scotch ancestry. As we anchor at the Golden Gate of Oppor- tunity on Progress Isle, we sincerely hope that the travelers who come after us will meet with as much success as we so fortunately encoun- tered. 1 IS SESIOE B O O S ' J 1 E R CLASS PROPHECY John Passwater 1, the prophet of the January 1931 senior class, do hereby foretell the future footsteps of my classmates. Throwing off the veil of ob- scurity, I see a long trail before my classmates and in the future looms the phantom city of reality.

Nathan Regenstrief is becoming quite a fa- mous necktie salesman. His loud speaking neckties are rapidly forcing the radio speakers out of business.

He tells his customers weird stories while serving them. He says this causes his customer ' s hair to stand up, making it easier to cut. But now the phantom city is fading and the way is lost to sight. A veil is slowly falling and obscuring my sight, but the January class of 1931 goes marching along to the strains of " On Manual " . SHE ' S SCOTCH Clara Glickert : Father, I walked all the way home from town today behind a street car and saved seven cents. Mr. Glickert: Why didn ' t you w r alk home be- hind a bus and save ten cents? SENIOR BOOST E K L9 JOKES Robert Dklks OUR OFFICERS There was a young man named Carl, Who has never been known to snarl.
