To the Faculty We, the June 1932 seniors, wish in this small way to express our appreciation to the faculty. The advice and suggestions that they have given us, we hope will be reflected in our char- acters and our successes in years to come. When we entered Manual as freshmen, we soon realized that the faculty members were not only teachers but also our friends and ad- visers. They were always ready to help us with our problems and never tired of giving us their co-operation in any of our projects. " Not to the Top but Climbing " As the members of our class stand on the top step of their high school careers we realize that we are " Not to the Top but ' limbing. " How lifting is that motto of our senior group. When we entered high school, the highest step we could visualize was graduation and for that we have been striving these four years. Now that we have attained that goal, however, we find that there are many more to reach, and we have only begun to fulfill our ambitions. Each step upward in the future is going to be more brilliant but that must encourage us to strive onward rather than to stop at our first success. If we stop on our first high step to live on our past achievements, we shall find that they will soon fade. We shall attain true happiness if we are satisfied to stop only long enough to look back at the success of the past, and then turn our steps upward. Our Aim There is some motive back of all deeds which are accomplished. The chief aim of the June 1932 class is to carry the Manual spirit away with us. Looking back, it will be found that the desire for this aim was born in us during our first auditorium when Mr. McComb talked to the freshmen. He stated with force and conviction our school motto, " We Can, We Must, We Will " , and this made a lasting im- pression on us. Our aim began to be woven around this statement until it soon became a part of us. If we show continually the true Manual spirit, exemplified by our motto, our school will always be proud of us. SENIOR BOOSTER 19 CLASS HISTORY SADIE ZIMMERMAN Commencement! And vha1 thai word brings to mind; solemn faces, ribbon bedecked diplo- mas. As Mr. McOomb welcomed us on onr first day at .Manual. September 11, 1928, there arose before ns a vision of the road to knowledge. We would have to tread many weary miles of thai long path before reaching our goal. Each would have to pass along thai mighty road lie- fore attaining the heights. We, as freshmen, looking like six year olds on Christmas day. gazed in awe and wonder at the austere halls of .Manual, not even daring to look ,it the pictures. Only juniors look at them. As we walked shyly down the halls, the word " freshmen " seemed to radiate from us. Did we have si ns on us which proclaimed it to the world? Soon, however, we lost that " greenness " and each was readily taking his place among the other- underclassmen. During the second year, frighl and misery gave way to pomp and grave demeanor. In- stead of lowly freshmen, we were now haughty sophomores promenading the halls. We knew that we yet had a long journey before reaching our goal. This inspired us to keep on. for soon we would glimpse the summit of the road. Oc- casionally, some stumbled and fell. In spile of this, those who were forced to leave our ranks were still considered classmates. Although in California, Oscar Reiger is one of the many who considers the June ' 32 group his class. Thomas Buckton, who moved to Illinois, is another whom we will always keep in mind as oi f our classmates. Because of illness, Howard Fields was forced to leave our line of march but we hope that he will soon be back- again on the road to knowledge. Thus, we soon passed the second milestone of our jour- ney. Then came the third year. With meetings, games, studies, and plans of what we would do as seniors, we completed Our junior year sue cessfully and the next fall were led out again on the newly ribboned road leading to knowl- edge. Finally, we all drew up to our fourth mile- stone, a group of two hundred strong. Under the guidance of Miss Knox and Mr. Clayton, we started our eventful year as seniors. At our first meeting in October. Charles Sumner was selected as guide for the first semester and William llenzie was made his as- sistant. The minutes of our meetings were taken by Adrabelle Fisher, and Eileen Davis was chosen to take the money at the toll gate. Pausing for a few days our line of march, we took up the business of selecting motto, color, armband, and banner. The color selected was idle green. An armband, a shield with the letters FMTIIS and .Mine ' 32, was designed by Carl Hancock. This was chosen as our class symbol. After many mottoes were considered, we chose as the most fitting one, William Rob- ling ' s " Not to the Top but Climbing. " A ban tier carried out in our class colors was pre- sented to us by Helen Sanford, a prominent art student of our class. It was at the beginning of our second semes ter, on February 1, ' .V.V2, that we chose as our president. William llenzie; vice-president, Charles Sumner: secretary, Adrabelle fisher: and Helen Sanford treasurer Besides having beautiful memories of our journey, we knew that we would like to have real pictures and also permanent records of im- portant events to treasure. These are all entered in our book called the Senior Booster. Clara Alice was editor-in-chief of the publica- tion. She in turn selected Harold Hall as asso- ciate editor, and Robert Hiatt was made busi- ness manager. To celebrate the fact that we were progress- ing along the road, we detailed that our rtrst festival would be a class play. It was April 7 and 8 that " The Road to Yesterday " was presented to a large and appreciative audience. The living symbol of all Manual graduating classes has always been the ivy vine which in years increases its growth and lovingly (dings to the walls of Manual. Miss Vivian " Webster ably sponsored our Ivy Day celebration. After our planting was over on May I ' ll, the silver trowel was presented by William Henzie to the January ' 33 class president. The Ivy Day song was written by Thelma Wright and the Ivy hay poem was written by Ernestine Moore. Continuing our line of march, our next stop was made on May 27, our Class Day. An in- teresting program was arranged by Mr. W. Finley Wright. Sadie Zimmerman read the class history. A far-seeing prophecy was given by Carl Hancock, and we learned our fates for future years. The giftorian, Helen Sanford, left many beautiful presents to students of the succeeding classes. In our last will and testi Concluded on page 23 20 SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS PLAY ANNA CALDERON " The Road to Yesterday " At last the curtain lose on the night of April 15, and the June ' : 2 class play was on. The actors played in a most convincing manner to a large and appreciative audience and soon everyone was absorbed in the action on the stage. Hilda Kuchler was adorable as Elspeth Tyrell and Harold Hall gave a tine perform- ance as Jack Greatorex, the hero of the play. Clara Allee was a splendid Aunt Harriet Phelps, and Robert Hiatt caused his listeners to go into gales of laughter every time he spoke. Mary Teifert as Malena Leveson, Elspeth ' s sister, was very good and William Henzie as Will Leveson, her husband, did some splendid acting. In our praise we must also remember Lillian Jensen as Dolly Foulis, Adrabelle Fisher as Eleanor Leveson. and George Strieker who took the part of Kenelm Paulton. Others who took their shares of the honors in the play were Eileen Davis, who played the part of the sympathetic house maid, John Carter, the solemn vicar, and Max Vinstein, Joseph Levy, Raymond role, and Harold Brit- tenbach. all lour of whom appeared as daring soldiers of the seventeenth century in Elspeth ' s dream. With such a splendid cast the play had to be a huge success, and it was. However, this play could not have succeeded had it not been for the able directing of Miss Perkins who worked so hard for weeks be- fore the performance. Catherine Higgins and Evelyn Euchs, Miss Perkins ' student assis- tants, gave valuable help also. It was Evelyn ' s duty to keep out all off-stage noises and Catherine took notes from Miss Perkins and helped to place the furniture for each scene in just the right positions. Behind the scenes, numerous helpers are necessary in order to make it possible for a play to proceed in the smoothest possible man- ner. During the few minutes between acts when the curtain is down, there is great activity on the stage while the setting for the next act is arranged, and many assistants are aiding the change of costumes and make-up of the differ- ent characters. The scenery for " The Road to Yesterday " was particularly difficult to handle but Mr. Pinch, as technical director and stage manager, guided the back stage group and everything went in perfect order. The class ex- tends its appreciation to Mr. Finch and to his student committee. Emanuel Farber was call man and was responsible for the curtain. La Vaughn Brabender and his assistant, Howard Hanna, worked at the switch board. It was these two who were responsible for the effective lighting in each act. Edgar Fields, George Jones, Clayton Burres, Paul Simmonds and Carl Hancock were the capable stage hands who had charge of moving the furniture and scenery. Howard Wright supervised the stage properties. Those in charge of the ropes were Foster Tilford, Richard Eggert and Brainard Cooper. Property girls were Katherine Beck- man, Dorothy Dunn, Bertha Emmick, Esther Gardner and Victoria Marsulescu. There were a great many people planning, weeks before the play, the scenery to be used. Mr. Weigler as stage carpenter was overseer of SENIOR BOOSTER 21 all this work. He was assisted by Eunice Hen- ton, Mildred Wischmeyer, Helen Sanford and Lucille Moore, who hammered, tacked, and sewed, helping to construct the scenery. The settings were painted by Ruth Hitzelberger, Ruth Williams, and Prances Bernhardt. Another feature which added greatly to the success of the play was the wearing of lovely costumes by all the characters. In ;ill the scenes each character was correctly attired. To Miss Baldwin, ;is costume designer, and her assistants. Rose Becker, Sophia Brodsky, Mary Tedrowe, Charlotte Witte, Helen Smith and Eleanor Frantzreb we owe our thanks for this. Miss Compton was in charge of the sew ing. She was assisted by Rose Becker, Sophia Brodsky, Pearl Eschowsky, Viola Baker, Thelma Guire, Clara Lark and Thelma Wright. The business affairs in connection with I he class play were handled by Miss Knox and her assistants. Miss Haynes and her salesmanship II class were responsible for all the clever advertising which preceded the two perform- ances. The excellent make-up of the characters was, as usual, supervised by Miss Denny and Mr. Davis. They were assisted by Eileen Jackson, Helen Smith, and Mary Tedrowe. Music for the afternoon performance was provided by the orchestra directed by Mr. Lon Perkins. Mr. Winslow directed the same group on the next night. To ;ill who had parts in the play, to all the back stage hands, and to everyone who was in any way connected with the production, the dune ' 32 class expresses its deep appreciation and thanks.

Concluded on page 23 TECHNICAL STAFF 21 SENIOR BOOSTER IVY DAY CARL JOHNSON Sometime in the future, as we recall the happy days we spenl at Manual, this page will lake us back to thai memorable afternoon f May 20, 1932, when we, the June ' 32 seniors, presented our Ivy Day program. Then we will further realize how fitting our motto. " Not to the Top but Climbing, " really was for us. High school is only a step in the climb up the hill to success, as Helen Sanford, our banner maker, pictured it. The design shows E. M. T. 11. S. at the bottom of a high hill with a beautiful castle ai the top which represents success. This top- mosl point can only be reached by hard and continuous work. We owe the success of our Ivy hay mainly to the general committee and to .Miss Webster who was sponsor of the program. Members of the committee were: Magell Lackey, chair- man, Clara Lark, Virginia Liese, and George Strieker. A sketch, " ' The Mirror of The Future " , was cleverly given. Those who were members of the iast were: Robert Dickinson, John Carter, Zelpha Schneider, Selma Meyer, and Mary Tie- fert. During the playlet, various members of the senior class were impersonated as they are Likely to look twenty years from now. Follow- ing this, a one-act playlet called " Dig Busi- ness " was given. John Carter took the part of Mr. Uford, the attorney, and what a lawyer he was! Virginia Liese and Robert Dickin- son were also in the play. We wondered, as we watched the performance, if any of these young people would become professionals in the dra- matic field. Next on the program were some songs by a selected quartette composed of Hilda Kuchler, Catherine Beckman, Thelnia Wright, and Magell Lackey. Herbert Spacke also added his hit to the program by singing. This was followed with a tap dance by Nora Mae Nichols and Ethel Lyons, those dancing marvels. Surely, we thought, the names of these talented people will be in bright lights in the near future. The Ivy Day song, written by our class mu- sician, Thelma Wright, was then played, and Ernestine Moore ' s Ivy Day poem was read. As the crowning feature of the whole Ivy Day program, William Henzie, our class presi- dent, presented to our principal the ivy vine from the senior class, after which Mr. Mc Comb gave his interpretation of our motto, " Not to the Top but Climbing. " Ceorge Wahl. president of the January ' • ' " class, accepted the silver trowel offered him by our president and agreed to pass it on to the next president. The program was ended with the singing of our beloved school song, and everyone went to the gym for the party and dance which for years has followed the Ivy Day ceremony. As we left, after a truly happy time, we knew that our class had added another chapter to Man- ual ' s Ivy Day tradil ion. IVY DAY POEM Oh ! ivy vine, so thin, so frail, We think of you as the Holy Grail. It led men on to greater deeds. When we think of you. we must succeed. We plant you on this Ivy Day, As we start along life ' s highway. As you climb, we know that you. Will help us always to be true. As we look at you. ivy vine, we feel You will help us reach our highest ideal. As Sir Galahad in search of the Holy Grail, When we think of you. we cannot fail. —Ernestine Moore. IVY DAY SONG Memories and friendships call us. Here where we plant this ivy vine: We hope that it will live always. And bring memories to our minds. Now our school days are over. We ' ll be drifting apart. But still the memories of Ivy Day Will linger in our hearts. Memories will come back to us. As the years one by one pass by. Of that small frail vine we planted Hoping it would never die. With that little vine we planted Our promise to be true. And cherish memories of Ivy Day, And dear old Manual too. — Thelma Wright, SENIOR BOOSTER 23 WILL RACHEL COHEN We, the June ' 32 class of Manual Training High School, in making ' our last will and testa- ment, do leave to our heirs and their assigns forever the following: To the next June class, we leave our eminent principal and guiding sponsors. Also, we turn over to it a specified green hammer to be found in the left top drawer of the desk when not employed hut which, if our heirs have taken after us, will likely more often be in use. Further use of this will he more clearly ex- plained in roll call by the honorable sponsors. To those sophomores or underclassmen who find that there are no desks available that suit them in their classrooms, we leave the seats in the office which have been made comfortable through much usage. To those who enjoy gymnastics and find the gym inconvenient and crowded, we cheerfully dedicate the spacious halls of our school, but on the condition that they must confine them- selves to mere walking or skipping. If hand- springs or other such feats are undertaken, the executors of this will will be forced to with- draw the aforesaid privilege. To those studiously inclined, we dedicate the library filled with interesting volumes of Shakespeare and Dickens. To the playful f resides, we give and bequeath the smooth long banisters of our manv flights of stairs to take the place of our time honored elevator. To the athletes, we bequeath our basketball and football teams and also a number of good men to lake the place of those who are leaving. We give and bequeath to those interested in the dramatical part of our school life, a group of workers to work backstage as well as the actors, with that perseverance and quality of labor that goes to make up an immensely sue cessful class play. To the worthy students who work hard the fourth or fifth periods of their daily routine and are in need of rest and amusement, we leave those long auditoriums. We also insert here the hope that one will eventually come along which will last the entire day. Being the bicentennial class, we take the pleasure of placing George Washington in trust for one hundred years, so thai the gradu- ating class at that lime may enjoy his tri-cen- tennial celebration and the numerous lectures and talks that we have endured. To those pupils who, in their anxiety to get to school, have forgotten to eat breakfast, we leave the Brown Giants, to be eaten either in the classrooms I under cover) or in the halls. And lastly we leave, to all. the friendliness, good will, and cheerfulness that has char- acterized our class in its years here in this school. CLASS HISTORY Concluded from page 19 mony, written by Rachel Cohen, we bequeathed to all the undergraduates the happiness of our four years in Manual. We also decided that another symbol was necessary, so, as we were the George Washing- ton bicentennial class, we left what we thought would be the most fitting gift. Fifty dollars was sent to the Washington foundation to aid in restoring as a national shrine Washington ' s birthplace at Battle Creek. Virginia. With the remaining money, we bought a bronze plaque which we presented to the school. The plaque contains a head of Washington in has relief and also his favorite motto, " Nothing but harmony, honest, industry and frugality are necessary to make us a greal and happy people. " And now our commencement is in sight. We are still marching along the road to knowl- edge. We are " Not to the Top but Climbing. " CLASS FLAY Concluded from page 21 Sewing .

What has gone before has merely prepared us for that which is still to come. Our quickened perception now enables us to see a bright star, temptingly out of reach ; beyond it are other stars rising up and up, even beyond our widened vision, where there are others waiting our arrival. Following the modern trend of thought, and at the same time expressing our new found ambitions, the January ' 32 class selected an appropriate motto, " Tak- ing Off, Not Landing. " And so, as we lift our ships from the level we are now leaving, may this motto be the incentive to keep them always pointed towards a higher level. Dedication In deep appreciation of unselfish service rendered to Manual while holding the position of instructor in Military Training, we dedicate this Senior Booster, the highest honor a class can bestow, to Sergeant Homer Shull. Due to his untiring efforts, the Unit of Manual Training High School has maintained a high standard of efficiency. Sgt. Shull ' s excellent coaching of the Rifle team has produced many winning teams. He managed to keep a personal contact with every boy in the Unit, thereby gaining the respect of those individuals. Although a strict disciplinarian, the Sergeant had little trouble with disobedience. Outside of his immediate sphere of contacts with the boys, his ability was also recognized by every mem- ber of the faculty. As our dirigible, the " Emmerich Manual, " nears its destination, as the historian so aptly describes our class journey, we pause to remember the many happy days of our journey, and hope that we have made an im- pression on our four years flight that will be lasting. Thank You We wish to thank sincerely all of the faculty mem- bers who have so generously given of their time and ingenuity in order to assist our class of January ' 32 on its senior flight. With the able assistance of Miss Izor the beautiful banner, designed by Dorothy Bernd, was completed for Ivy Day. The cast of our class play was successfully directed by Miss Perkins, assisted by Miss Webster. Mr. Finch, the technical director of the stage for this performance, contributed greatly to the success of the play by his clever methods of lighting, and by his capable man- aging of backstage affairs. Miss Baldwin and Mr. Davis, too, did their parts in the costuming and make- up of the play characters. For this assistance we are certainly grateful. Miss Webster worked faithfully to prepare an Ivy Day program, which was most interesting to all. Mrs. Batchelor sponsored Class Day, our last senior event, with great success. Due to the fine generalship of Miss Brady, our sponsor, and the wonderful cooperation of Miss Moore, our roll room teacher, our class has been safely piloted over its stormy course. Miss Baldwin, with the able assistance of her fourth and fifth hour Free Hand Drawing Class, handled the mounting of the senior and club pictures in a very efficient manner. Senior Booster r CLASS HISTORY PHILIP FOGLE It was in the year 1928 ! A tribe of tiny people from the wilds of Primary Education desired to make a pleasant and leisurely flight through the land of higher education, commonly known as high school. This tribe, later to be known as the Class of January 1932, chose as its means of transportation a large and beau- tiful dirigible called Emmerich Manual. On a bright afternoon, September 7, 1928, the members of this group gathered for the first time in the state room, or auditorium as it was called, to receive some valuable information from their commander, Mr. McComb. With this information " We " , for I was a proud mem- ber, were eligible to carry on the duties of freshmen. In our freshman year, we made many new acquaint- ances and became accustomed to the large and spacious rooms of knowledge. Our studies were taken very seriously for we had received information that this beautiful airship was, in time, to be run by our superior class, and that hard and conscientious work was nec- essary before we could attain this honor. Time went on, and for a year we had flown through the amazing land of education. During this period we had encountered many storms, fogs, and blizzards. Each time we were determined to give up and land, but the " never say die " spirit of our superior class urged us to continue our journey. Another year soon passed. By this time we began to realize the importance of our preliminary training which we were obtaining in the various departments of our beautiful and reliable dirigible, Emmerich Manual. One year remained befor e we were to be given the controls of this large aircraft, to bring to an end our flight across the broad fields of Education. On February 25, 1931, with the aid of our two, never tiring, navigators, Miss Moore and Miss Brady, we began to prepare for our first solo flight. Clyde Crafton was named Chief Pilot, with Kenneth Wil- liams ready to take over the controls. As recorder of our journey we chose Rosa Pence, and as financier we named Geraldine Daggy. As a mark of identification, we chose a very artistic arm band designed by John Schurmann, using for the print a very beautiful Chi- nese red, our class color. Abroad our dirigible we had three very prominent personages; a Prophet, Merle Faubion; a Will Maker, Elizabeth Miller; and a His- torian, your author. A vocation committee, in charge of Dorothy Bernd, provided several prominent citizens who spoke before us during the flight. We were well on our way, and our crew of enthusi- astic workers was speeding our flight with success. Suddenly we hit misfortune, when one of the most illustrious, brilliant, and dependable members of our crew was taken from us. On May 29, 1931, Mary Katherine Hayes passed away after two weeks of serious illness. We were greatly grieved by the loss of this most cheerful and good natured comrade who was at all times willing to offer her help when help was needed. While going at a terrific speect in mid-air, we turned over the controls of our aircraft to Kenneth Manion who was named Chief Pilot, and for his able assistant we selected John Schurmann. Rosa Pence and Ger- aldine Daggy retained their former positions of re- corder and financier. As a standard for our dirigible, we selected a beautiful banner designed by Dorothy Bernd. " Taking Off Not Landing, " a suitable motto for this artistic banner was submitted by Lula Mae Richardson. As a remembrance of our flight, we pub- lished this Senior Booster which was edited by Robert McDaniel and who selected as his chief assistants, Amelia Ann Smith and Harold Banta. November 20th was selected for our Ivy Day. A successful Ivy Day celebration was made possible by the sponsor, Miss Vivian Webster. For entertainment we presented a theatrical produc- tion direct from Broadway, New York, a very delight- ful comedy, " Green Stockings " which was ably direct- ed by Miss Lola Perkins, assisted by Miss Webster. Finally, on January 20 our last festival which was Class Day. we gathered together for So, we have come to the end of our flight. For some this means the beginning of another trip through a higher land of Education; for others this marks the beginning of a non-stop flight through life. Which ever flight we take, we will be " Taking Off, Not Landing. " IS Senior Booster CLASS PLAY HARRIETT BARRICK " GREEN STOCKINGS " A. E. MASON The hum and buzz of conversation ceased. The cur- tain raised. The play was on. And what a play it proved to be. For three short hours, the audience forgot all its troubles and enjoyed itself immensely as the comedy was unfolded before its eyes. All too soon the final scene came — all too soon the curtain was rung down. Another successful class play was recorded in the annals of Manual history. The audience followed each move of the actors with breathless interest. It shared the humiliation of Vir- ginia Boyd as Celia Faraday, the " old maid " , and it glorified in her triumph in the end. Her clothes made one sit up and take notice. Colonel Smith didn ' t have a chance. And what a dashing Colonel Smith, Merle Faubion made! Who will ever forget him in that part? Geraldine Daggy as Phyllis Faraday, the sister of the " old maid " , was adorable, and John Schurmann as Honorable Robert Tarver, her sweetheart, gave a splendid performance. In our praise we can ' t forget Edward Raasch as William Faraday, Plarry Tilson as Admiral Grice, Hilery Pieper as James Raleigh, Eldon Nelson as Harry Steele, and William Fischer as Martin. Ruth May, with her powdered hair, as Mrs. Chisholm Faraday was great, and Helen Lammers as Evelyn Trenchard, the young widow, and Barbara Robinson as Madge Rockingham took their share of the honors. The gorgeous formal dresses of the girls were stunning, and the boys in tuxedos made many a feminine heart beat faster. What other results than a successful class play could be expected from such a cast ? But in our praise of such a play and such a cast, we must not forget the ones " behind the scenes. " Without the splendid coaching of Miss Lola Perkins and her assistant, Miss Vivian Webster, this class play could never have succeeded. They gave all of their time, from the day the play was chosen until its presentation, to make it one of which the January 1932 class could be proud. Back of these directors were the loyal supporters from our own Senior Class who spent much time and effort to make this play the success that it was. They deserve a good portion of our praise. While the actors were rehearsing their parts, each one of these support- ers was doing his particular task to make everything go off smoothly. Dorcas Morris, student assistant, is to be congratulated for carrying out her services so well. The stage manager, Robert Coomler, can always be depended upon to do his best, and he certainly did not fail us this time. Mildred Purdy and the property girls were invaluable in assisting the actors in making changes of costume, and in holding props. Mr. Finch and his assistants spent hours arranging the scenery and the furniture to the best advantage. Each piece of furniture, which gave the stage a cozy look, was placed in just the right position; each scene was made exactly correct. The result was very artistic, and Mr. Finch and his committees should certainly be complimented for excellent work. Senior Booster Miss Haynes and her Salesmanship II class had charge of the stunts. These were both novel and in- teresting. One was a visit by " Amos and Andy " , who came to the roll rooms and gave the pupils a " tip " to ittend " Green Stockings. " Another stunr was the hang- ing of a long line of green stockings in the lunch room with the sign " Class Play, December 10-11 " beside them. Small green flags in the ice cream further adver- tised " Green Stockings " , while nursery rhymes on the boards of the Roll Rooms also told everyone to see the class play. The advertising committee, with Miss Brady as Chairman, certainly helped to " put the play over. " They saw to it that the posters designed by students were placed in the most conspicuous places — in the street cars, theatres, and stores. Miss Baldwin had charge of costumes. The make-up, as in the past, was supervised by Miss Denny and Mr. Davis. We also owe our thanks to Mr. Winslow and his orchestra for the fine selections played by them during the play.

Foremost among these memories is the afternoon of November 20, 1931, when we, the January ' 32 class, marched down the aisles of the auditorium to participate in the traditional Ivy Day program, observed by every gradu- ating class of Manual Training High School. The success of this program was assured by the work of Miss Webster, Ivy Day sponsor, and a committee in- cluding; Clement Craig, Mae Jones, Julien Davis, Elizabeth Miller, and Dorothy Kerkoff. While we took our seats, the orchestra, directed by Mr. Winslow, played a march. On the stage our class banner, displaying the motto, " Taking Off, Not Land- ing, " was held by Dorothy Bernd who designed it. The program began with a pantomine showing the development of a student through his four years in high school. The freshmen, who were Margaret Tins- ley and Julien Davis, gazed in awe at the Ideas — scholarship, sports and activities, as they each walked passed them. These parts were taken by Louise Mon- roe, Hilery Pieper, Louise Roberts, Harold Banta, Em- erson Barlow, and John Grable. The sophomores, Paul Gerdts and Mae Jones, lifted their noses and sniffed in characteristic disdain at these same Ideas. Eldon Nelson and Dorothy Kerkhoff, as juniors, next came on the stage, with their heads buried in textbooks. As Ideas paraded before them, the juniors eagerly ex- amined all of them. Lastly, the seniors, themselves, gave several vocal, instrumental, and novelty selections. Next came the high spot of the afternoon, the real Ivy Day celebration. Kenneth Manion, our capable president, presented the Ivy to Mr. Sanders, who was acting in Mr. McComb ' s place because of the latter ' s necessary absence from the program. Mr. Sanders made a short acceptance speech on receiving the Ivy. Ken- neth next presented the silver trowel to Charles Sum- ner, June ' 32 class president, who received it with a promise to uphold all traditions connected with the Ivy vine. After the reading of the Ivy Day poem, composed by Rosa Pence, the class sang the Ivy Day song, which was written by Myrta Tilson. This concluded the for- mal program of the afternoon. The class then ad- journed to the girls ' gymnasium where the customary Ivy Day senior party was given. So was passed another memorable day ; so was left at Manual the final symbol of our love. IVY VINE Rosa Pence Ivy, we plant you here today And start you climbing on your way Up to the clear blue sky above, A symbol of everlasting love. While you are braving storm and strife, We ' re taking off on our flight of life; Though the journey long, this point we stress, We ' re off on a non-stop flight to success. Oh Ivy Vine, so small, so frail, You show the way, we cannot fail ; As v e leave you here for Auld Lang Syne, Make us worthy of thee, oh Ivy Vine. Ivy Day Song Myrta Tilson Ivy Day Brings Memories Of the years gone by ; Friendships true, that bloomed and grew, We hope they never die. Years go by, Time goes on, And we will drift apart; Here ' s some advice for you, Keep Ivy Day true In a spot deep down in your heart. {Continued from Page 19) Posters , Miss Izor, Miss Denny Assistants,. ..George Reimer, Naomi Scott, Ruth Klinge, Gene Baldock, Imogene Price.

The cup, decorat- ed with red and white ribbons, which stands in the cen- ter corridor of the main floor speaks for the achieve- ments of the football team. Some of the athletes had a hand in the winning of the city baseball championship last year, and the basketball and track teams have made a good showing. The boys leaving are: « » Harold Bant a — No. 1 man on Moffat ' s tennis team. Won every match in which he engaged, including that with champions of the Big Ten. Spent one year on team. Walter Kahn — Two years on the football squad. A hard worker, but oh, how he hated the " laps " after practice. « » Marshall Joyce — Very seldom heard from, but played football for one year. Kenneth Man on — Speedy boy from the south side. In spite of only running one year on the track team, he managed to gather enough points for a block " M " . Always seen out in front during a track meet. Arthur Brehob — Very dependable man on Mr. Wil- liams ' s baseball team. Could always be counted on for the necessary hits. Played varsity basketball during the first of the season. He is a one year man in each of these sports. « » Robert Cooiuler — The " old reliable. " Played on Man- ual ' s football team two years in the long, long ago. In spite of his looks, he spent one year on the track team and two years on the hardwood squad. He has been athletic manager for the past two years. Alerle Fa ibion — Merle was out for football for three years and his endeavors finally culminated in receiving position as guard on the All-City High School Football Team. Vincent Masarachia — Played Kahn ' s position part of the time. Also has two years credit. Had a brother playing on Tech ' s football team but did not let it worry him. Robert McReynolds — Banta ' s team-mate on the tennis team. Played two years and received a block " M " last year. Will be seen on the court this spring. Edivard Sfrols — Another large football man. Came to Manual from the Navy. We wonder why. « » Harry Tilson — A substitute on the tennis team last year. Has hopes of becoming another Tilden since their names are so nearly identical. Paul Gerdts — One of the most athletic-minded boys at Manual. Spent four years on the baseball team and four years on the football squad. Although he did not make the varsity, he certainly had the right spirit. Kenneth Williams — Played football last year and sec- ond team basketball this year. Can be counted upon to put all the necessary fight into any basketball game in which he participates. John Grable — Not being content with three years of football service, John also spent one year on the base- ball team. Regular substitute for Cowden on the 1931 team. GOLF DAYS Fred Staggs: " Golf is pie for me. " Jack Toobin : " It must be. I see you just took another slice. 22 Senior Booster BUSINESS GIRLS— X SECTION ODD NUMBER CLUB H. Y. S.
