We realized then that to prevent failure and accomplish our purpose, it would he neces- sary to fight unflinchingly, and relentlessly forge ahead. Our highest pinnacle in high school has been reached, and as we enter the future to gain greater accomplishments we feel that we cannot fail with such a motto to inspire us. The future is only a more rugged extension il our high school career with more difficult and important problems to solve and a higher peak of life to reach. Just as we have attained our goal in high school, we now go out to put forth our supreme efforts to " Fight, Forge, and Fail Not " in climbing the future heights. JUST " AU REVOIR " This is our last chance to address all our teachers, friends, and classmates as a whole. Our sentiments go deeper than merely thanking everyone for past favors, or giving any of the customary farewells. We aren ' t really going to leave forever. When in later years our thoughts wander back to school days, the sensible ami intelligent influence of our faculty advisers and helpers will be freshly illuminated in our minds. And then we will be more than evei thankful for those precious days. But back to present reality — our thought of leave-taking now is done amid laughter and gaiety, for we have not realized yet that we, who have lived for four years in the atmos- phere of a splendid challenge — " We Can, We Must, We Will, " are actually leaving. Our intentions are to stride forth and make practical use of the splendid training that Man- ual has offered, and then come back again bring- ing honor and pride to our Alma Mater. So instead of saving farewell, we say, " An Revoir. " MANUAL ' S 40th BIRTHDAY At a recent meeting of the executive commit- tee of the Manual Alumni Association, it was decided to defer the annual meeting of the group until February, 1935, when the school will celebrate the fortieth anniversary of its founding. " A Committee of Forty, " to be ap- pointed soon by the president, will have charge of activities in connection with planning the event. Present officers of the alumni group are Otto Mueller, June ' 01, president; Victor Jose, June ' 06, vice-president; Anna J. Schaefer, June ' 98, secretary, and F. II. Kemper McComb, treasurer. CLASS PL AY By HENRIETTA WE1LAND " SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS " by Jessie Braham White Plays, stories, or in fact anything which points a moral are generally frowned upon as rather uninteresting and preachy. Not so the class play, " Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, " which was presented by the -June ' 34 senior class Thursday afternoon, March ' 1 ' 6, and Friday night, March 24. The fairy story is a captivating one filled with witches, talking cats, and dwarfs. The gallant Prince Florimond, splendidly played by John Hayes, not without apparent cause, fell in love with the wistful, naive Princ- ess Snow White on first sight. Jessie Levin as Snow White also captured the hearts of the en- lire audience by her unaffected simplicity and youthful charm. Inez Smith so skillfully enacted her role of the vain, selfish Queen Brangomar, who schem- ed to kill Snow White, that no one was sorry at the terrible fate which awaited her at the end of the story. Snow White had so endeared herself in the hearts of the servants that Berthold, the Chief Huntsman, engagingly portrayed by William Goldstein, deceived the haughty queen and took hack the pig ' s heart instead of slaying the in- nocent Snow White for Queen Brangomar. Merl Kord, the droll leader of the dwarfs, Viola Johnson, the naughty and youngest of them, and Harry Kirschner, the little one with the great big voice together with the other four " little men " all capably handled their parts with an odd and amusing seriousness causing lunch mirth and joy, while the erstwhile comed- ian, Leroy Fisher as Sir Dandiprat Bombas, Court Chamberlain, was the reason for much laughter whenever he was before the lights. Several times the spectators experienced op- posite emotions as Goldie Dichner, Witch Hex, sent shivers down their spines by her dry, cack- ling laugh and weird, ininatural voice. She was excellently aided by the two black cats, portray- ed by Chestine Miller and Lloyd Cain. Returning to the realistic again, the court at- mosphere was picturesquely supplied by the maids of honor, the royalty, pages, heralds, and flunkies of the palace. It need hardly be mentioned that like the char- acters of all fairy stories " they lived happily ever after. " The staff, headed by Miss Perkins and Mr. Finch ably assisted by other teachers and students, deftly performed the numerous coach- ing and back stage duties necessary to make everything appear just right out front. Property, costume, poster, and business com- mittees spent many valuable hours prior to the performances, all of which materially aided in its successful presentations. Music was played by the orchestra under the direction of Mr. Winslow.

(Continued on Page 19) GLASS HISTORY By DON WAGENER As the locomotive, E. M. T. H. S., rolled into the station of Freshville four years ago, we, a group of freshmen, crowded eagerly onto the platform. We boarded the train, overcome with bewilderment and awe, and strange as it may seem — a large number of books. Unsuspecting- ly, we tripped down the aisle, little knowing that the next moment we would be sprawled on the floor due to the playful foot of some junior or sophomore. After a few minutes, during which time, we attempted to reassemble our thoughts, we were taken to our assigned coach in the rear. Here we developed and finally blossomed into be- loved sophomores. At Sophomount, the second stop on our trip, we were officially christened sophomores and advanced to the next car, where we took keen delight in securing revenge on the newcomers, the freshmen. It was during this year that we had the privilege of viewing our city championship football team. As members of this great squad, many of our boys were able to gain athletic success. After this we suffered a relapse and books were discarded, for we were unquestionably growing smarter by leaps and bounds. Like other sophomores, we could feel the genius in us budding out. However, these buds were promptly squelched by the teachers. There was not much activity during our junioi term but we looked forward to our last and sen- ior year. It was our big year and it held pros- pects of great joy and pleasure. During this time we learned the art of cutting classes with- out getting caught, but for some unknown rea- son we always landed in the office. Our inten- tions for the last lap of our trip tended toward fun, but we also were conscious of the work con- fronting us. It was a cheerful and confident crowd which boarded the train pulling out oi Juniortown. There was a decided difference in the present group of boys and girls compared to the ones who had boarded the E. M. T. II. S. three years ago. Instead of bewildered and awe- stricken freshmen, we were a wise (too wise) class of seniors. As we started from Juniortown, we found that the positions at the controls of the train had been vacated. As a result of the election, John Woerner was made engineer (president) ; Martin O ' Neill, fireman (vice-president) ; Jessie Levin, hostess (secretary) ; and Eugene Wahl, brakeman (treasurer). Miss Knox and Mr. Clayton, proud owners of the iron gavel, were again put at the post of conductors (sponsors). Frequent stops were made along the road to wit- ness our football and basketball games. Although, they failed to prove champions, the spirit and fight characteristic of all Manual teams dominat- ed ours and the boys proved worthy foes for the best. During the first half of our journey, we were most cordially entertained by the January sen- iors at their Ivy and Class Days. At the Ivy Day ceremony Silvio Costantino, January class president, passed the trowel, symbolic of deter- mination to uphold the senior traditions, to John " Woerner, our president. For these oc- casions we selected the arm band submitted by Lucile Davis as the one we would wear. Red was chosen as the color to represent our class. After these events, we settled down and studied as the end of the term approached. At the end of the semester and also the end of the first half of our journey to Seniorville, a few of our fellow students for some mysterious rea- son were detained and missed the departure of the train. It was later rumored that they were staying at a roadside inn known as ' ' The Green- house. " We were sorry that we hadn ' t been told of the side trip, until we learned that the place had a poor reputation and then we were glad that we had stayed away. It was necessary again to elect a crew to control the train. We did something unique in re-electing the previous officers whose work had been most capable and efficient. At the same time, we filled other positions necessary for the completion of our journey. Virginia Russett was made willmaker ; John Hayes, giftorian , Don Wagener, historian, and Helen Fechtman was made prophet. After the brief respite we continued our journey, meanwhile preparing for two of the big days of our high school career, Ivy Day and Class Day. Both days proved a complete success, due to the hard work and splendid cooperation of the teachers and pupils. They were fitting climaxes to the social functions of our senior year. Meanwhile, we had chosen the banner submitted by Norma Hall and the motto, " Fight, Forge, Fail Not. " This motto before us has given us constant in- spiration which has helped us to continue in our school work and activities inspite of our numer- ous adversities. The E. M. T. IT. S. has completed another trip. It is with mixed feelings of regretfullness and pleasant anticipation that we have neareel the end of our journey. Diploma in hand, we shall step proudly from the train next Monday sincerely hoping that we have upheld the tra- ditions of a long line of splendid Manual grad- uating classes. I V Y D A Y By GERALDINE BRISBIN A small sprig planted — Young ' , struggling, beginning its laborious climb, Going upward, diverging. Yet always with faith, unfaltering and sublime. Until, clinging to every hold afforded it. The ivy vine covers the top of the wall. These things which keep the memories of school days ever alive in the hearts of its stud- uts are the traditions of the school, the special ceremonies that, although somewhat romantic- ized as the students grow older, are never forgot - ten. We, the June class of 193-1, gathered togeth- er Friday, May 11, to participate in that time- honored ceremony of leaving a living memorial behind us, the ivy vine. The banner of our class, red and white, was held in the center of the stage as the seniors marched up to take their places in the auditor- ium. The motto, " Fight, Forge, Fail Not, " stood out clearly and bravely against the back- ground of white for purity. Opening the program was a scene showing the first Ivy Day; the girls wore ankle length dresses, and the boys wore high stiff collars. A realization of the many, many young people who have participated in the Ivy Day program since that first day came to me. Then the choosing of the Manual colors was shown, Red for courage. White for purity. This was follow- ed by the first Manual yell which has since be- come known as the " old standby, " the old Ri-cke-ty Ex. A drill was next given to show how Ivy Day was celebrated during the war, and the flag with black stars, numbering the men from Manual who were killed in service, was lowered at the back of the stage as taps were played. This program was followed by the presen- tation of the trowel to the members of the next class. The president of our class, John Woerner presented it to Raymond Rugenstcin. the president of the January class. And then the ivy vine was received by Mr. Sanders. There was something thrilling and challenging in the thought that we and our ivy vine are at the same point in our careers; we must either live up to our motto, or never accomplish any- thing in life. The Ivy Day songs were sung by the whole class. They were written by Esther Koch, who used original music and words; Paul Barman and Harvev Wvant, who wrote a song to the music of " The Old Covered Bridge, " and Mary Ellen Roark, who composed a song to the tune of " Auld Lang Syne. " As I have said there have been many seniors at Manual since that first Ivy Day, and there will be many more in the vears to come. A feel- ing of reverence comes over me when I think (hat many have carried through this same cere- mony and many more will do the same. They will never forget, as we shall never forget, that no matter when they return to old Manual, they can find their living emblem clinging to the wall, reaching for the top, always going up- ward. Success of Ivy Day was due to a group of committees who worked under the leadership of Miss Kellenbaeh, sponsor. Ruth Russell was chairman of the group which planned the pro- grain, assisted by Maynita Baumgart, Martha Johnson, Elvera Kirschner, Charles Thoren, Charles Jenkins and Harold Zukerman. The business committee, headed by Conva Willough- by, consisted of Lucille Welch, Chestine Miller. Mary White, Harvey Wyant, Harry Kirschner and Abe Stein. Following the formal program in the audi- torium everyone enjoyed the dance in the boys ' gym, music for which was furnished by the Pep Band. Mary Louise Leachman was in charge of the party assisted by Mildred Alderton, Anna Louise Lorenz, Eugene Wahl and Donald Wag- oner.

We shall recall with pleasure the various school activities, the unforgettable footbali games, the senior class parties, but as time goes on we shall perhaps recall with the greatest pleasure the enduring friendships we have form- ed here. These friendships, we shall realize, are as much a vital part of our education as the actual knowledge we have -rained. They have given us a better knowledge of human nature and they have prepared us for a life where the ability to understand and get along with other people will be one of the factors of our success. " ANCHORS AWEIGH, " OUR CLASS MOTTO In accordance with a precedent established by other graduating groups, we, the members ol the January ' 34 graduating class, have chosen a class motto, " Anchors Aweigh. " We selected this motto because we felt that it expressed the ulti- mate of all our ideals of ambition, determination, and success. At the termination of our high school career we have realized a broadening of our views, and we have acquired a keener perception which en- ables ns more clearly to recognize the storm seas upon which we are about to embark. To some, graduation will mean a continuation of higher education, while to others it will mean the opening of an entirely new field in the business world. As we embark on our journey through life with these thoughts in mind, we cast anchor with the firm conviction that our class motto. " An- chors Aweigh, " will ever be an incentive for nobler ideals and greater accomplishments. TO THE FACULTY— IN APPRECIATION After four years of study we January ' 34 seniors have conic to the end of our high school training, and as we look back we realize more than ewer bow much our teachers have meant to us in making these years successful. I ' pon entering Manual, we were taken as adopted children into the hearts of the various teachers with whom we came into contact, Our best interests were their highest aim, and their past experience in guiding others like us was moulded into a path for us to tread. Soon we will walk through the doors of .Man- ual for the last time as students, but whenever we return to visit our alma mater we know that, no matter how great the span of years, we shall be welcomed by the faculty. May we ever hold their high ideals as our guiding influence. CLASS HISTORY By CATHARINE FERRARO " Anchors A weigh, " our ship of. state, is at last Hearing the end of its voyage, after a fouc year period of hard work and study. Aboard our ship we have safely piloted through rough waters and stormy seas with the help of our ship ' s staff, that has tutored us and helped us make our trip the success that it is. No longer are we the freshies that boarded the ship in 1930, bewildered and awed at the greatness of our un- dertaking, nor are we the sophomores or the haughty juniors, but we are the mighty seniors of the 1934 class. In January 1933, our admiral, Mr. McComb, told us to take command of the ship and he wished us luck throughout the rest of our journey. In order to do this we needed ea]iable officers, so we chose John Nackenhorst, captain; Houston Whitson, first mate; Jeanette Gentry, second mate; and Silvio Costantino, purser. We were invited to several parties given by the June seniors throughout the semester. At one of these affairs, Ivy Day, the traditional trowel was passed on to our captain by the president of the June class, Raymond Meyer, and at this time we accepted the responsibility of carrying on the tradition of planting the ivy as a permanent memory of our class. The fall term, mid-point of our journey, soon arrived and we were ready to elect new officers. Silvio Costantino was made our captain; Hous- ton Whitson. first mate; Jeanette Gentry, sec- ond male; and Paid Collester, purser. We had sailed our ship thus Ear without a flag. Fay Davis, a prominent art student ol our class, called our attention to that fact and sub- mitted her design which carried out fittingly the idea of our motto, " Anchors Aweigh. " This we accepted. The need of a passport was sup- plied by Paul Collester, who designed the arm- band in green. The date for our first celebra- tion. Ivy Day, sponsored by Miss Evans, was set for November 10. On this occasion, Silvio Cos- tantino passed the traditional silver trowel to John Woenier, president of the June class, with live request that his class carry on the tradition of planting the ivy. To celebrate the fact that we were progressing in our voyage, we presented on December 14 and 1 " ), " When ' s Your Birthday? " a three act play, which was enthusiastically received by members of our class, and all others who saw the produc- tion. Since we wished to preserve pictures and rec- ords of the most important events, we set to work to publish our class memory book, the Senior Rooster. This publication was made possible by the able leadership of Morris Riskin, editor-in-chief; Harry Miedema, associate editor; and Emogene Truman, business manager, assisted by the others who formed the literary and busi- ness staffs. Still striving to reach our highest goal, grad- uation, we looked forward to Class Day, Janu- ary 10, which was to be our last festivity. On the program that day appeared Wilma Williams, our far-seeing prophet; Imogene Truman, ex- ecutor of our will; Nathan Fogle. who distribut- ed mythical gifts to the class; and Catharine Ferraro, historian. The scene for the class day stunt was laid on board a ship the last night of its trip. Everyone was in the gayest of moods. The orchestra, di- rected by Earle Sanders, furnished music for the program and dance, while Richard Emery acted as master of ceremonies. Harry Miedema loaned us his tenor voice for the occasion and other special entertainment included a Dutch hand composed of John Hayes, Carl Berdel, Kenneth Simon. Leroy Fisher and Francis Van Brunt. This group played several songs of German origin. We were also entertained by a quartette com- posed of Edna Roark, Madge Gallamore, Doro- thy ( ' ross, ami Sarah Craig. Four other girls, Eugenia Lain, Gertrude Hartman, Elizabeth Weiland and Lavina Steimke, gave a tap dance as a feat are of the program. Our last class social function has passed, and we are uearing our journey ' s end. but the mem- ories of this period will be cherished by us for- ever. We shall always remember with a pleasant thought the happy times we had together while we wen- students at Manual. Although we hate to leave, we arc thrilled to think that perhaps we may have added a little more glory to our school, and our only hope is thai we have done our share in maintaining Manual ' s high standards. WE EXPRESS OUR THANKS The January ' 34 class takes this opportunity to express its appreciation for the zealous interest and untiring efforts shown by all facul- ty members and underclassmen who in any way aided in editing this, our Senior Booster. IVY DAY By M I LDR FD RUGENST R I X During the Ivy Day program, Friday, Novem- ber 10. wo wore transported on the " magic ship of memory " to the " Port of Heart ' s De- sire, " the name of the Ivy Day sketch, where we relived again the events which had meant so much to us throughout our senior year at Manual. With photographic clearness we had brought hack to us memories of our school life. As the old Manualite taking the trip on the magic ship, Nathan Fogle looked on while diff- erent groups depicting the Manual life of our senior class came on the scene. We recalled how we walked through the halls, having our fun, studying at the last minute, and having pleasant talks with our classmates. It was easy to forget that memory, though, when four girls, Eugenia Lain. Deloris Mellis, Helen Shaner and Mildred liugenstein danced, and once more we remember- ed that glorious May Day celebration during oui senior year. This was followed by one of those most enjoyable piano solos by our talented Wilma Williams. Fun and gayety were brought in when a group composed of Eugenia Lain, Vera Raesner, De- loris Mellis, Mildred liugenstein, [rving Selig. Silvio Costantino, Richard Finery and John Aackonhorst did a grand march. Class Day! Someone mentioned Harry Miedema, and lie was persuaded to sing a song again. Soon we re- called Ivy Day. too, as Madge Gallamore, Doro- thy Cross, Sarah Craig and Edna Roark sang. In the stunt, " The Port of Heart ' s Desire, ' was also included the formal presentation of the silver trowel by our president, Silvio Costantino, to John Woerner, president of the June senior class. Then as a remembrance of our class which would live on at Manual through the years, out leader presented the ivy plant to Mr. MeComb, who accepted it on behalf of the school. In his reply Mr. MeComb told us to lift the anchor and sail on just as we were doing. The orchestra played " Anchors Aweigh " and the entire class sang " Memories " as the concluding part of the Ivy Day program. The group then adjourned for a grand party in the gym and so another perfect Ivy Day was happily completed. The success of the program was entirely due to Miss Evans, who sponsored the day, and her committee composed of Imogene Truman (chair- man), Mildred Rugenstein, Helen Shaner, Rich- ard Emery, Boris Guleff and Nathan Fogle. A social committee which included Deloris Mel- lis (chairman), Edna Roark. Lloyd Thomas, Houston Whitson, Dorothy Liese and Mabel Yount, was responsible for the senior party fol- lowing the auditorium program. Class officers, with Miss Evans, plant lln- ivy for the January ' ■ ' ) senion CLASS PLAY By JBANETTB GENTRY " WHEN ' S YOUR BIRTHDAY " Aurania Rouverol An outstanding event which the seniors of the January ' 34 class will recall with pride and satisfaction was the presentation of the class play, Thursday and Friday, December 14 and 15, by a capable east under the able direction of Miss Lola I. Perkins. The rise of the curtain in the first act dis- closed Malory Dwight (Frederick Greve) seated in the beautiful room of his New England home- stead in profound thought. His was a perplex- ing situation; for besides being left without a nurse for his invalid sister. Clary (Maxine Strait), he had also been deserted by his be- loved fiancee (Lillian Levinsky). While he was sitting there meditating over the sad state of hisaffairs, who should enter but a charming little gypsy girl (Esther Bernstein; who sought refuge from her pursuer Ben Ali (Harry Eades) of the circus troupe to which she belonged. Leonore was asked to stay, and re- mained to act as Clary ' s nurse. With this dark- eyed gypsy ' s entrance into the Dwight house- hold, fortune and good cheer also came in. Of course, one of the greatest things Leonore did was to convince Clary that she could walk- again and when the latter accomplished this, she consented to many her sweetheart, Nick Jame- son (Harry Miedema). Precise and garrulous Ann Parsons (Gertrude Kelley) the town nurse, amiably furnished the tonic which cured all ail- ments, and she and her old-time lover, Timothy dale (Irving Selig), who had prepared him- self for death, were happily united again. Lovable Aunt Nabby Nash was always run- ning over with some good thing for Clary to cat or to see if she could help. But not so with her extremely susceptible husband Jotham (Paul Von Dielingen) who, when not contracting a n ' disease, was objecting strenuously to Leon- ore ' s presence in the Dwight house because of the fact that it might cause scandal to fall upon 1he family name. Aunt Nabby, however, had been greatly impressed by the pretty gypsy and tactfully suggested to Malory that he marry her. The suggestion was accepted and arrangements were made for the ceremony, but the timely re- turn of Lindv, the lost sweetheart, during the rehearsal for the wed- ding brought about a change in the situation, for Malory realized that he was still very much in love with her. Ben Ali then came back for his love, the petite Leon- ore, who by that time realized that she loved him, and together they returned to the desert. All in all the play was delightfully done, an excellent comedy pro- ducing many laughs. Mr. Harold E. Win- slow, in charge of the music, directed the orch- estra, wh i c h added greatly to the enjoy- ment of both perform- ances. Mr. Lewis E. Esther Bernstein as Leonore and Harry Eades as Ben Ali. Finch, assisted by his stage committee, effi- ciently produced the stage settings, lights and curtains, w h i 1 e Miss Berniee, Baldwin and Miss Anna J. Schaefe - had charge of the cos- tumes. Miss Vivian Webster and Mr. Oran Davis supervised the make-up work.

Prompters Helen Clark, Molly Gold SENIOR ATHLETICS By HARRY EADES Four years ago our ship arrived at the port of Manu al, manned by an inexperienced crew. Our stop was to be made mainly for the purpose of exploring into the interior — the interior of books entirely foreign to us. Also, we were to have opportunities to strive not only for schol- astic records, but for honors in other fields such as athletics. Much can be said concerning the ability and sportsmanship of the members of our senior crew who have helped to form Manual ' s athletic teams throughoul the four years we have been here. A greal deal of our success in all sports has been due to the efforts of certain members of our class. And so now. with a feeling of pride, we bring before you the complete record which our group has made both in boys ' and girls ' athletics. M — Costantino, Silvio — Sil culminated his four years of athletics at Manual by receiving the Purdue football medal of honor. Member of Painter ' s 1931 city championship football team.

CLASS WILL By IMOGENE Be it known by these presents, when in the pursuit of business and pleasure, it becomes necessary for the graduating class of January 1934 to dissolve, according to the laws and opin- ion of mankind, it is required that a proper distribution of all its property should be made. Therefore I, Imogene Truman, a person of sound mind, in good health and possessing a good moral character, do hereby make public and declare this to be the last will and testament of the aforementioned class, hereby revoking and annulling all previous wills. We give, and bequeath to our principal, Mr. E. II. Kemper MeComb, and all other members of the faculty, our heartfelt thanks for the in- terest, assistance and cooperation they have shown towards us during the past four years. We give and bequeath to Miss Lena Brady and Miss Jessie Moore the seats in room 217. TRUMAN May they be as pleasantly occupied as by the class of ' 3d. To the students who will stand and wait in line in the lunchroom, we give the best lunches Uiat can be found in the city. To the graduating class of January 1935, we bequeath the anchor hanging in room 217. May they always follow the ideal of this motto and reach success. To the freshmen we give the right to eat Brown Giants in class without being scolded for it. To the sophomores we bequeath the encyclop- edias in the library, since they are supposed to be the wisest classmen in school. And lastly, we leave to all, the friendliness, good will and cheerfulness that has characterized our class throughout its years in this school. IMOGENE TRUMAN. Class Will maker.
