PERKINS September 19, 1874 May 1, 19: TKREI-; ■ ■: »!• »!» !■ c5 tribute MISS LOLA I. PERKINS Indeed Manual has lost a true friend! When on May 1, Miss Lola I. Perkins passed away, grief filled the hearts of Manual students, graduates and faculty members. The fact that Miss Perkins had such close contact with senior classes placed an additional bereavement upon the June ' 35 senior class. During- her twenty-two years of loyal, faithful and efficient service to Manual Training High School, Miss Perkins gave unselfishly of her time and efforts toward whatever cause she might be working. Upon her ar- rival at Manual, Miss Perkins assumed charge of the senior class plays, and continued this work until her death. The many class plays which have been coached by her have brought oustanding recognition to Manual. While Miss Perkins was a member of the faculty at Manual, hardly a dramatic production Avas held for which she was not consulted. When- ever she was asked to aid in some dramatic event or any other project, to be more exact, the word " no " seemed to be a forgotten one in Miss Perk- ins ' vocabulary. The influence of Miss Perkins ' character will live for years to come in all the students and teachers who knew her. It would lie an extremely difficult task to name a better example of true womanhood than this beloved instructor. Like the mythical Abou Ben Adhem, Miss Perkins served her fellowman with unfailing devotion and also was an ardent server of her re- ligious faith as was shown by her strong interest in church affairs. The name of Miss Perkins rightfully should be included among Man- ual ' s Immortals for if anyone ever achieved well-deserved greatness, it was she. There is probably no better way of expressing the great loss which has been mournfully suffered by all concerned than to repeat the words of a friend who when he heard of the tragedy said, " We shall miss Lola Perkins more than we now can know.

R. Clayton Roll Room Teacher Mrs. Ada M. Bing Ivy Day Sponsor Mrs. Hazel Dorman Class Day Sponsor OUR FAREWELL WISH If we seniors would look back a year to re- call how odd it seemed to us then to be moving into a new roll room, especially such a large one with so many occupants- we would probab- ly be astonished. For now, 135 has become as familiar to us as an old friend because of the fun and common interests that ha c been shar- ed there. It is true that sometimes that roll room was assumed to be only a place to which we were forced to report during the third period. Gradually, perhaps a trifle subconsciously, we began to realize that 135 was our individual home room, belonging only to us. From the time of that realization we all secured more en- joyment from the senior class as a unit. With the vain wish that we could in some way keep the 135 roll room ours after we have left Manual, we relinquish its possession, and will it, if we may, to all approaching seniors, and to our faithful, forebearing leaders, Mr. Clayton and Miss Knox. FOUR YEARS ' RESULTS It is to be expected that when we, the sen- iors, graduate from Manual, we should feel that we have accumulated a considerable amount of knowledge. However, we do not realize at the time, perhaps, that anything unused will stiffen to incapable rigidity, a fact that applies to knowledge as well as to bones of the body. Now the question arises as to how we can use our knowledge so that it will not lose its value. By continuing to satisfy an urge to further learning is the only way in which education can be kept alive. Nourishment can be given it not only through continuing our training in higher institutions, which a limited number are able to do, but also through the everyday reading of books, current magazines, and newspapers. Once provided with the desire to acquire more of an education we have ample ordinary means for supplementing natural intelligence. Therefore- we have no right to boa.st of knowl- edge gained thus far unless we intend to retain it by obtaining more through our own efforts, with the added purpose of fulfilling that inten- tion. MANUAL, WE SAY ADIEU With the thought of our imminent departure from Manual ever present with us, we June seniors wish to express the ideas that have been suddenly crystallized into form. Oddly enough we believe that we shall never entirely take leave of this school that we have attended for four years, both because we shall retain a great deal of the Manual spirit embodied in all that is re- membered of our schooling, and because we hope we shall have willed our accomplishments to the long recognition of future students. Thanks for all the benefits we have reaped, and which we intend to retain, from our four v ears ' stav! ..♦•AAA.

" QUALITY STREET " by James M. Barrie Pleasant memories of a successful class play produced on April 25 and 26, will long remain in the minds of the June seniors. The only sorrow that shadowed the production was the fact that Miss Perkins, our director, lay ill in a hospital, the sickness that led to her death a week later. Our associate director, Miss Vivian Webster, with the assistance of Mr. E. Edward Green, coached the cast to a flying- finish. For this the seniors give their thanks. The story, " Quality Street " , was centered around the lives of two sisters, residents of Qual- ity Street, who feared they were oh the verge of spinsterhood. Aglaia Angelopolos charm- ingly portrayed the character of Miss Phoebe Throssel, the best prospect of the two for mar- riage, while Mildred Grossman, as her sister, was excellent in her part as Miss Susan Thros- sel. Edmund Phillips, as Valentine Brown a soldier of the Napoleonic period, was the hero of the play. Prying old maids interested in Throssel affairs were played by Lilly Buschatsky as Miss Fannie Willoughby, Georgianna Ami, as Miss Mary Willoughby, and Freda Brill as Miss Henrietta Turnbull. Frances Snoddy as Miss Charlotte Parratt was still hopeful of stealing the heart of some young man, such as Ensign Blades, ably portrayed by Richard Hill. Other characters to be praised were Clayton Nichols as recruiting sergeant, Marguerite Johnson, Patty the hopeful and cheerful maid, Robert Bottin as Spicer, Harry Einstandig, a sarcastic old soldier, and Wayne Shives as a gallant gentleman, plus those who took part in the schoolroom scene and the ladies and gentle- men at the ball. The main struggle of the characters was that of Phoebe to win back the love of Valentine Brown when he returned from a victorious Napoleonic war and found his former sweet- heart faded and old. Miss Phoebe through a mistake was forced to carry out the character- ization of a non-existent niece , Miss Livvy. Through clever motivation of the plot, however, Phoebe learned that Valentine still loved his old sweetheart in spite of her wrinkles and gray hair. In praising the participants in our senior event we must not forget the loyal workers behind the scenes. Mr. Lewis Finch with his stage crew chairman, James Miller, and other assistants carried on the backstage man- agement without which the play could not have been produced. Other members of the faculty and student body whose splendid cooperation was of great importance were Mr. A. L. Weigler and his woodworking class, for their efficient work, Miss Violet Beck and her assistants on the costume committee, Miss Anna T. Schaefer, wild was in charge of designing and making the costumes, Miss Arda Knox as business manager, Miss Elizabeth Hodges, in charge of publicity in city newspapers, and Miss Helen Haynes and her Salesmanship II class for the advertising of " Quality Street.

Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb inspired that group with the school-motto " AVe Can, " We Must, We Will. " To each of us, that thought became the first ex- ample of what this life at Manual was to be. After our principal ' s speech the future seem- ed less complex than it had upon entering- The upper classmen soon upset their feeling of secur- ity in regard to Manual customs, however, by sending them in quest of elevator tickets, up and down the wrong stairs and generally misguid- ing the trusting young freshmen until they were ready to give up in distress. Promenading! That continual merry-go- round fascinated and delighted all. Each face, picture, and room became engraved upon the memory of every new student. Just beginners, but they left their mark. The freshman football team was undefeated through- out the season. Members of that team who con- tinued at Manual are Walter Presecan, Lewis Billiard, Charles Lewis, Albert Marks, Edward Morris, George Beeson, Barteld Vredeveld and Howard Rosberg. It was during this first year of our education that Manual and the freshmen lost four good friends. Death took Miss Bertha Thormeyer, while Miss Kate Wentz, Miss Augusta C. Mer- ing and Miss Mabel West resigned from teach- ing. Those freshmen days were spent in earnest endeavor, but, as cocky sophomores, individual- ism became the goal. Friends and acquaint- ances became more numerous and for a time Manual was a Iiiiiv pla house lo Die sophomores. As juniors, a realization of the wonderful op- portunities that Manual afforded, intrigued each student to abandon the slipshod study that had been predominant in the second year and to remember that education was an important fac- tor in the life of everyone. The group which had come in ' 31 as " green- ies, ' ' had admired and respected the seniors and for three years had strived to reach that figur- ative, " pot of gold. " Finally that goal was reached, and we became seniors. But the gold when found was not the precious metal; it was even more dear. The highly esteemed characters of Miss Knox and Mr. Clayton were of pure gold. Their kindness, patience and guidance were of supreme importance and necessity in making the June class of ' 35 a success. By MARY ELLEN BILLIARD As a. matter of organization the class held election of officers, and Walter Presecan was elected president of the class ; Marjcrie How- ard, vice-president ; Helen Wheeler, secretary ; and Lewis Billiard, treasurer, at the first meet- ing. When the time came to choose the traditional arm band, Georgianna Amt ' s design was select- ed and as their color, the class chose green. Ivy Day which was sponsored by the January ' 35 class, was the occasion which first demanded " the wearing of the green " and the proud ex- hibition of armbands. With the close of the September term, the last lap was started. Officers were again elect- ed. Walter Presecan, Helen Wheeler and Lew- is Billiard were re-elected, and Gertrude Oertel replaced Marjorie Howard as vice-president. Other officers were elected later. The predic- tion of the future was to be made by Richard Hill ; David Suddeth accepted the responsibility of willmaker; Inas Donahue was chosen giftor- ian ; and Mary Ellen Billiard was to organize the class history. The motto, " Rowing Not Drifting, " submit- ted by Clara Kinney was selected by the class to be its motto. It symbolized the knowledge acquired through the four years training. Helen Hansen won the banner design contest and with it the honor of making the 1935 ban- ner. This emblem becomes the permanent prop- erty of the school- On Ivy Day, the class staged a playlet under the direction of Mrs. Ada M. Bing, after which the formal presentation of the ivy vine and trowel was made by Walter Presecan to John Cristina, president of the January ' 36 class. A romance of the Napoleonic period, " Qual- ity Street- " by Sir James M. Barrie, was the senior class play chosen by Miss Lola, I. Perk- ing and her senior committee. Under her di- rection, the play was cast, but rehearsals were hardly begun when Miss Perkins became id. Miss Vivian L. AVebster and Mr. E. Edward Green generously took over the work and on April 25 and 26 the play was successfully pre- sented. On May 1, news of the death of Miss Perkins shocked and grieved the entire class. Included with the flowers sent in the name of the class, was a note which read, " The June ' 35 seniors feel very deeply the loss of a friend, a benefac- tor and an ideal teacher. " As senior activities drew to a close, the class looked forward to its publication by electing (Continued on Page 24) .»J.» «» «.Jm$«»J..$m.$..$..J«. . .».$,.$. TWENTY-TWO dnjy Q)ay By FRANCES JEAN WEBBER Since our young ' minds are constantly occu- pied with things of the present, we hardly real- ize that mere incidents of our daily high school career will become endeared memories and dreams of tomorrow. In these days to come Ivy Day, one of the last senior rites, will linger because of the challenge it gave to us in the idealistic motto, " Rowing not Drifting. " and the symbolic planting of the ever climbing ivy vine. It was on May 1:2, 1935, that the words of this challenge were shown to us on a beautifully de- signed banner made in our class colors, green and white. This banner was designed and made by Helen Hansen. It pictured a ship, with sails and oars, painted green on a white satin background. Following the display of the class banner, a one et skit entitled " Flower Shop Rehear- sal " was presented for entertainment. The skit was written and directed by Mrs. Ada M. Ring, our Ivy Day sponsor. The play pictur- ed different Manual students rehearsing their individual stunts (which were for the Ivy Day performance) for the entertainment of John Stucky and Frances Jean Webber. Others in this skit were Dorothy Skaggs, Ella Newman, David Suddeth, Marjorie How- ard, Sonka Angelkovich, Catherine Bondi, Phoe- be Marselescu, Wannetta Royalty, Mildred Kraft, Betty Cubel, Helen Stamper, Anna Ped- ery, Mary Ellen Billiard and Margaret Aton. Those backstage who aided were Robert McCormick, Frank Rishel and Woodrow Ever- man. On the Ivy Day committee were Freda Brill, Doris Walden and Jean Saas. Woven into this act were the reading of our Ivy Day poem, which was written by Mary Ellen Bill- iard and also the singing of Marie Nangle ' s Ivy Day song. When this was concluded, Walter Presecan, the president of our class, in a more formal manner presented the significant ivy vine to Mr. Sanders. Walter then gave the silver trowel, with which the ivy is planted, to the January ' 36 class president, John Cristiiia, who accept- ed it and promised to uphold the Manual tra- dition of the ivy vine. For a successful conclusion to the custom of Ivy Day an all-senior dance was held in the gymnasium. As guests, the January ' 36 class attended and participated in the grand march which was headed by the two class presidents. Thus, the seniors turned another page in their book of high school activities, which will be re- called in later days with delightful memories. THE IVY VINE By Mary Ellen Billiard Humbly, we, the senior class, Have come to plant a vine, Aji ivy ; may it thrive and be To us a sacred shrine. Sturdy rootlets Ave will place Into upturned sod ; It will grow, cling to the walls, And upward climb toward Ood. This ivy vine will speak for us In days which are to be, For we sincerely plant now A symbol of our loyalty. IVY DAY SONG By Marie Nangle (Sung to the music of " The Rosary " ) The hours I ' ve spent, within thy walls Are as a precious pearl to me And may this clinging ivy, oft recall That memory — our memory ; And may its ever reaching arms Toward nobler deeds — our hearts inspire As up it climbs on Manual ' s walls To live in memory. Our friendships true, that dear have been We must so soon asunder part To leave behind this ivy to recall Those mem-o-ries — always, Those mem-o-ries. ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ TWENTY-THREE Glass Qtay By FRANCES BRAZEAL Class Day ! It brings back f oud memories which will never fade. As we marched down the aisle to our last class meeting, tearful thoughts filled our minds as the time for part- ing neared. AVhen our president, Walter Pre- secan, gave his farewell speech, we fully realized the truth of the old adage which says that high school days are the happiest days of one ' s life- However, our more optimistic views toward life in general returned and our spirits took a decided jump as Richard Hill, class prophet, took over the task as master of ceremonies. Our four year high school course was then depicted by various dances. Our freshman vear to the tune of " AVhat Are Little Girls Made Of? " was shown in the dance by Aglaia Angelopolos, Sonka Angelkovich, Helen Blakley, Mildred Briggs, Ruth Chaplik, Frances Ferraro, Hort- ense Hermann and Margaret Aton. In our sophomore years we grew a trifle more frivolous as gradually we became acquainted with Manual and Margaret Aton, Wannetta Royalty and Helen Stamper revealed this by a tap dance to the tune, " Lookie, Lookie, Lookie. " As jun- iors we had become sentimental and had taken on an air of sophistication. This stage in our high, school development was portrayed by Anna Pedery, Clayton Nichols, Catherine Bondi and Albert- Marks as they waltzed to the tune of " I ' m Falling In Love With Someone. " ' At last as we became seniors, we laid away the charac- teristics previously developed and became dig- nified and serious (which is every senior ' s duty) and Freda Brill was our representative as she sat on the top of the world while the song, " I ' m Sitting On Top of The World, " was being played. Again, our master of ceremonies took the stage and we were thrown into gales of laughter as he gave a few examples of his imaginative creation in which he prophesied what the future lives of some of our seniors would be like. Then came another review of our high school development but this time a verbal picture of our trials and tribulations while gradually climbing the ladder to seniorhood. Memories of our first days at Manual recurred and again as a class we relived our high school years as freshmen, sophomores and juniors. This was given by Mary Ellen Billiard, our class histor- ian. Again the man who can see into the future in- terrupted to give us a few more facts on who ' s who in 19-AO. Then Inas Donahue, class giftor- ian, offered her gifts to the school and as dig- nified seniors we listened to hear which was what and foremost in the opinion of our giftor- ian. Another look into the future was given by him who knows all, hears all and sees all. Oiu- willmaker, David Suddeth, was next to contribute to our fulfillment of a joyous after- noon as he read his last will and testament to the class- Many of us were reminded of our own particular characteristics and shortcomings. Next appeared the musically minded girls of our class, Dorothy Skaggs, Frances Stumf, Ger- trude Oertel and Thelnia Seaman, accompanied by Roseann Fogarty, who blended their voices to the tune, " When I Grow Too Old To Dream. " During this particular scene Margaret Long took the center of the stage to sing a solo of the same number. And the deamess of our high school memories was locked in our hearts forever, never to be seen again except in dreams. As the program ended the strains of Some Of These Days You ' re ' Gonna Miss These Sen- iors " was sung and we were brought back to realization as the curtain closed and we march- ed out of the auditorium, the tune of the last song yet ringing in our ears. The success of the Class Day program was due in a large part to the sponsorship of Mrs. Hazel Dorman, who was assisted by several other faculty members.

These fel- lows have shown the real Manual spirit during their years of competition and have received a due reward for their services, not only material wealth but also the respect and admiration of the entire student body. Listed be- low are the members of the senior class who have distinguished themselves in Manual ' s sport world. George Beeson — Number 1 man on our golf team during the past two years. He is always par or thereabouts. Served the team three years. Lewis Billiard — One of Painter ' s big men in the baekheld last year. He is also one of Ank- enbrock ' s mainstays on the track team. Lewis played football four years and was on the track squad one year. Earl Brandon — Here is one of the most out- standing basketball stars that we have had in years. He started in the net sport as a small, green freshie, but developed rapidly in his four years of playing. Merrill Duhamell — One of the small hut mighty. Played on Moffat ' s tennis team for three years. Swings a wicked racquet on the court. Also a very capable reserve basket- ball player. Robert Ecton — A n k e n- lii ' ock discovered that this boy could run and used linn in the relay. Bob al- so plays golf. Hits cross- handed and still out- drives them all. Ralph Faccone — Another one of the dynamic Paintermen. Played four years on Manual ' s football team and gave a good account of himself as the spark plug in the guard position. Bo MeMillen has been warned of his intentions at Indiana- Paul Jolliff— Manna for this boy, Jolliff. 220-vard low hurdles 1 is thanking Bloomington When he is entered in the , his opponents concede him the race. Paul played on Painter ' s football team during the past two years. From Blooming- ton he came, to Blooming- ton he goeth, at least, so he sayeth. Charles Lewis — Charlie is our rosy-cheeked center. Proved himself to be al ways in there during the football season. Should have had an all-city berth. Dean Linson — One of the reserves on our var- sity basketball team. Also played freshman and dependable reserve basketball. Dean strokes the ball perfectly on the tennis squad. Was the only man to win a point from Tech. Albert Marks — Our plunging half-back in the last year. Shifted to fullback the latter part of the season, and plays either position well. Lloyd Mattson — Lloyd is one of our tall blonde basketball players. He starred in his freshmen and junior years, but was slowed down in his senior year by a knee injury.

All- city football flash. James Soots — n e of Painter ' s versatile ends. Played on the team the past three years. Abe Stein — A quiet bask- etball star. Abe played on the varsity one year and the reserve one year. Proved to be a de- pendable reserve for the varsity. r iim John Farmer- hut dropped wrestling ' .

Probably the most outstanding event which occurred during the senior year of members of the June class and also an event in which many of the members of the class actively participated was the Fortieth Anniversary of Manual Train- ing ' High School. This was observed with a celebration, February 18. A committee headed by Mr. Otto N. Mueller, president of the alumni, had complete charge of the gigantic affair which brought thousands of alumni back to Manual from all over the country to roam once more in the same halls and class rooms where they once were stud- ents. A colorful pageant, " Manual ' s March of Time, " written by Mrs. Ada I l. Bing, head of the English department, was given before an auditorium that was packed far beyond capacity, as a climax to the celebration. And so on this memorable occasion. the June ' 35 senior class congratulates you. Manual, and wishes you many happy returns of the day. German Born Citizen Gave Years of His Life to Ideal.

We have come to the parting of the ways. It is time to say goodbye to the traditional hallowed halls and recitation rooms of Emmerich Manual Training High School. During the four years we have spent here, we have added a new store of knowledge, we have gained standards of living such as fair play, hon- esty, initiative, and self reliance, through participation in the extra, curricular activities of our school. We have enjoyed the grand comradeship of our fellow students, also our cheerful and always helpful faculty advisers. AVe started at the bottom of the school ladder, and have progressed to the jumping off place. We are bridging the gap between text book and grim reality, but we turn a wistful eye and wipe away a furtive tear as Ave say goodbye and good luck, Manual. Your fortieth graduating class bids you many happy returns of the day on your approaching birthday. E D I T O R I A L S c L A S s H I S T O R Y bj Florence Mills Jus! exactly four years ago this January a group of timid, rather insignificant looking persons sat in the auditorium at Emmerich Training High School, most of them wishing they had never been horn. You see, they composed the incoming class of freshmen, thereby earning the right to wish they had never been born. They had assembled there, not in ones and twos, but in Large groups as though safety from the terrible upperclass- nien lay in numbers. How much they had to learn! However, the calm, inspiring voice of Principal McComb did much to reassure us (for I was one of the timid, rather insig- nificant people, too) and get us started right. During the first year we suffered our trials and tribulations with all becoming hu- mility as we adapted ourselves to new suroundings and lea rned all the " do ' s and don ' ts " . The usual number of boys got lost in the girls ' locker room and vice-versa. But at last this period of our lives passed and we became wise-cracking, hall-promenading, library- lounging sophomores. This station, which to us as freshmen had seemed all that could be desired, now re- vealed itself as only another stopping place with plenty of work ahead. While most of us realized this fact and worked all the harder to reach the final goal, a few were content and so fell by the wayside. Members of our class began to be outstanding in school activi- ties, athletics and scholarship. What with finding time to stroll the halls and at the same time keeping up in our studies, the second year passed rapidly and overnight we were led into a different channel of thought. As juniors we cared Jess for ornamenting the halls and really began working. The years had slipped upon us and here was seniordom practically staring us in the face. Were we prepared? Many of us found we were not and must needs scurry around and change our programs to include certain necessary subjects. Many had to carry extra credits to include the required ones. All things must come to an end, however, and this year of intensive study was no exception. After a year of countless misdirections as freshmen ; a year of endless tramping the halls as sophomores; and a year of numberless pages of homework as juniors, we decided that we must get the most out of our senior year. So we assembled in 217 and with the help of Miss Brady and l Iiss Moore selected our class officers for the spring term. Ray- mond Rugenstein was installed as class president wi Marie Kuntz was named recording secretary, and the Loekhart. A committee was appointed to select colors for oui beautiful cobalt blue. Designs for an arm band were was the creation of Robert Kleis. The committee whose duty it was to choose a motto for the class from the many suggested, decided on " Climb Though the Rocks Be Rugged " which was submitted by the committee as most fitting and symbolic of the spirit embod- ied in the class of January ' 35. Dorothy Werner ' s design for a class banner was cho- sen. After we were introduced into senior social life by being invited to the dune senior Ivy Day and Class Day parties, the first semester of our year as seniors drew to a close. Returning to school in September, we embarked on the last bit of our journey through Manual. Since the class officers had been selected for one semester only, the first thing we did was to choose a new set. Dan Veza was chosen president and Raymond Rugenstein, vice-president ; Marie Kuntz was again given the task of keeping the class records, while Gilbert Timmons was the choice for treasurer. Samuel Gordon was named editor-in-chief of the Senior Booster and chose as his assis- tant, editors, Alex Lazar and Brie Wilson, with Evert Parks as business manager, assisted by Robert Duncan. On November 14, with Miss Webster as faculty sponsor, the class observed Ivy Day and planted the traditional ivy vine outside the building. The ivy day songs, written by Frieda Greenwald and Robert Duncan, were sung, and Dorine Loekhart read her poem written for the occasion. To satisfy the theatrical urge in the class we decided to stage a play and so through prodigious efforts on the paid of Miss Perkins, the director, " Skidding " ' was presented December 6 and 7. And then January 17, as the final event of our career at Manual, we celebrated Class Day, and enjoyed a fine program directed and arranged by Miss Web- ster. At this time Dorine Loekhart read the prophecy and Harry Walker gave the last will and testament of the January class of 1935. The class history was given by Florence Mills. And so, though our time at Emmerich Manual Training High School is over, we trust that we will continue to " Climb Thoueh the Rocks Be Rugged. " h Robert Cain as his assistant. finances were entrusted to Dorine class and the html choice was a also submitted and the one selected 9 • ft K r B SB " SKIDDING " a three act comedy by Aurania Rouverol THE CHARACTERS Aunt Milly (Mrs. Hardy ' s sister) Marie Kuntz Andy Max Harris Mrs. Hardy Edythe Hall Judge Hardy Robert Kleis Estelle Hardy Campbell Emma Blosser Marion Hardy Mary Aldea Wayne Trenton III Dan Veza Myra Hardy Wilcox Ursula Marine Mr. Stubbins Samuel Gordon Grandpa Hardy Robert Cain Directed by Miss Lola Perkins, ten members of the senior class, produced " Skidding, " a three act comedy by Aurania Rouverol, in the auditorium, December 6 and 7, as the Jan- uary ' 35 class production. Enthusiastic applause by a generous audience demonstrated their approval of the acting ' and the play. The play deals with the trials and troubles of a Judge in Idaho and his typical American family. The first act shows the return of Marion, a daughter, from a finishing school in the East with her fiance, Wayne Trenton II. Parental approval is slow in forthcoming. Other complications in the plot are the marital difficulties of Marion ' s two married sisters, Myra and Estelle, the political manipulations attendant to renominating the Judge and the carryings-on of Andy, a mischievous young brother. All of the cast turned in a fine performance. Mention must also be given the back stage crew which together with the various committees worked diligently to produce the finished spectacle which finally appeared in front of the footlights. And as all good things must end, so the elass play ended, accompanied by much praise and satisfaction. STAFF PRINTING and SALE of TICKETS Director Miss Lola I. Perkins . . . , . . TT , , .

These sounds have died away for nine senior ath- letes who are about to pass through the Manual portals as students for the last time. Much could be said concerning the sportsmanship and ability of the players who through four years at Manual have tried their best to make the school outstanding in athletics, but their awards and merits are the only testimony needed. That their achievements may live after they are gone, we wish to set forth here a brief account of their deeds and valor on i lie hardwood floor, the gridiron, the track and the tennis court. A T H L E T I C S M-Hoyt— Ed is one of the " small but mighty " that you read about. Played football at Manual for three years, two of them in the varsity. Collected a Purdue Medal and placed on the 1934 All-City football team. Also played freshman bas- ketball. M-Veza— Dan played football for E. M. T. II. S. for four years. Played only one year on the varsity but was unanimously elected to the 1934 All-City football team. AVas awarded a Purdue Medal and did some fine playing to get it. M-Rugenstein — Ray is another of our " football heroes " . Played on the varsity two years and is one of our four year men. Placed on the 1934 All-City second team. M-Hartman — ( ur opponents can Aerify us in the following statement: " When Elmer tackled them they were really tackled. " Been playing football since he was a fresh- man. A member of the 1934 All-City toot- hed 1 team. M-Hunt — Earl is what all basketball coach- es dream about. When he shoots, the score board registers automatically. Been play- ing basketball for his alma mater for three years and been on the varsity two years. Freshman football. M-Nahmias — Morris ( " Amos " to you) has been playing basketball for four years now, and two of them on the varsity. Also ran on the track team one year and was one of Coach Moffat ' s tennis stars. Briggs — George has been one of our var- sity basketball players for two years. Makes a wicked basket and doesn ' t get net-tied, (get it?) easily. Hadley — Ira didn ' t manage to make the varsity football eleven but has been one of the loyal reserves for two years. Hines — Amos has been playing basketball for Manual for two years. One of those tall men who can almost look into the bas- ket, Others who participated in some activity pertaining to sports during their four years at Manual are : Wilbur Patrick, football ; Robert Duncan, track: Fred Van Brunt, track. To those who were active in girls ' gym activities we wish to give recognition. Dorothy Werner Florence Mills Helen Pappas Edythe Hall Evelyn Spangler Hose lb ' sniek By Erie Wilson. Our football squad enjoyed a uniformly successful season, compiling ' the second best record in Marion county. The basketball season is not yet over, but our fighting five will do a lot of damage before the season ends. These two athletic aggregations continue to up- hold the high standard of Manual sports. I V Y D A Y bj Mary A Idea Our Ivy Vine By Purine Lockhart We shall plant beside these sturdy walls today An ivy vine, and leave it there to make its way Alone, through rain and snow and wind and sun Through all the years, until the top is won. Now we, too, must go alone our many ways. May we, through all the years and months and days Though Hie way be rugged, grow strong and fine Climbing on, undaunted, like our ivy vine. Ivy Day Song Tune: Just a Year Ago Tonight. By Frieda Greenwald ■lust a year ago today In tlio same old Manual way, They planted the ivy vine. With hearts and spirits gay ; They were there the same old way. Just a year ago today. Though the years may come ami go, We will always kuow That the ivy vine will keep on growing. •lust a year ago today, In the customary way, They planted the ivy vine. Some day in the future as we remember these happy days at Manual, we shall recall our Ivy Day held November 15, 1931. On that afternoon we. the graduating class of Jan- uary ' 35, observed a typical Ivy Day program which was staged in the Manual audi- torium. As we filed down the aisles, the sight of our class banner, designed by Dorothy Werner, met our gaze. It was a banner striking in its simplicity, depicting our motto, " Climb Though the Rocks Be Rugged. " The design presented the rocky path leading to success which can be obtained only by climbing ever upward in our daily labors. We opened our program by singing " Just a Year Ago Today " composed by Frieda Greenwald. As the curtains were drawn back, we saw Harry Walker and Anna Shapi- ro, two Manual seniors, who portrayed two persons in cpiest of the ivy vine. With the aid of a woodsman, enacted by Chester Owens, they were able to find it just as a gay crowd coming in from a weiner roast met them. One of the crowd, Rose Resnick, sang " The Ivy Vine " and Joseph Fogle, our diminutive drum major, obliged us with " Moon- glow " and " Breeze. " The formal ceremony was opened b.v Harry Walker, who presented the ivy vine to the president of our class, Dan Veza. In turn Dan presented it to Mr. McComb, who re- ceived it, with a short speech of acceptance. Our Ivy Day poem was read by Dorine Lockhart. Finally, our president presented the silver trowel to the June president, Walter Presecan, who agreed to pass it on in the traditional way to the January " 3G presi- dent next semester. The handing clown of the trowel has been an established Maimal custom since 1908. The delightful program was brought to a close with the singing of the Ivy Day song, the words of which were written by Robert Duncan. Then we adjourned to the girls ' gym for the class party . Thanks for a successful Ivy Day program and party are due Miss Webster, the spon- sor, and committees who planned the day. Seniors and the groups on which they serv- ed were Robert Baase (chairman), Frieda Greenwald, Herschell Duncan, Joseph Fogle and Anna Shapiro, program; Evelyn Spangler (chairman), Virgil Dampier, Joe Baker, Halene Lambert and Virginia Lyons.
