' With the realization that Manual has furnished many vital rungs of our educational ladder upon which we seniors shall rise to fulfill our ambitions, there comes the knowledge that our ladder will never be completed and vet retain the purpose for which our class ehose the motto, " " We Build The Ladder By Which We Climb " . As long a.s the ladder is being constructed, elevation in commerce, the professions and in society will continue. In the past twelve years we have developed and added greatly to our hereditary knowl- edge, in order to bring us nearer our objective. No one can hope to fulfill youthful ambitions without, continued endeavor until they are reached. And, they cannot be reached if development of the ladder is stopped; you cannot go higher than your highest rung-. GOODBYE, MANUAL! Goodbye, Manual ! Physically, yes — mentally, no ! From the familiar halls of Manual we shall scatter to the four winds, some of us to further our educational attainment, others to en- ter the vast world of business, but always in the recesses of our minds will be a mental pictui ' e of our high school and all of the things which our teachers, advisers and associates have made Manual mean to us. And even physically many of us shall return to the haunts of our high school days on occasion to thank and tell our former instructors and sponsors how much we have actually benefited from their efforts to give us a sound educational foundation on which to start life. As seniors, knowing that our high school career is almost completed, we realize the sincer- ity of purpose and wholeheartedness with which our various teachers have assisted us, ami as we shall soon depart on widely-diverging paths, the members of the June ' 36 graduating class take this opportunity to express their earnest thanks and appreciation to the faculty. -Fourteen By CLASS HISTORY JUD JORDAN In September, 1932, a group of starry-eyed grade school graduates were admitted through the portals of what they later knew as the " and " . There they were welcomed and in- structed by Mr. E. IT. Kemper McComb and Mr. Clarence R. Clayton. Despite warnings issued by the above-mentioned members oi! the faculty, frolicsome upperclassmen waylaid the newcomers and gave them some uncomfortable moments during their first few days at Manual. Though their freshman year was spent in scholarly endeavor, as sophomores these pupils began to look to the lighter side of school life. In fact, the entire year was virtually devoted to frivolity. During their junior year they again settled down, put their noses to the prov- erbial grindstone and worked. It had taken two years of school for them to realize that required subjects and a certain number of credits were necessary for entering the senior roil room. Finishing their first three years at Emmerich Manual Training High School, they embarked on the liner, E. M. T. PI. S. One ' Thirty-five, and weighed anchor for a cruise to Port Com- mencement, The helm of the ship was ably maimed by Helmsman Clayton, while Miss Arda Knox was extremely competent as bos ' un; Jack Hiatt was elected captain (president) ; Herbert Schwomeyer, first mate (vice-president) ; An- gelo Angelopolous, keeper of the log (secre- tary) , and Dorothy Yfineman, purser (treasur- er ) . Soon after getting under way, the passengers attended the Ivy Day exercises aboard the E. M. T. PI. S. Two Seventeen, at the invita- tion of the charterers, the January 1936 senior class. It was there that John Cristina, captain of the January essel, presented Jack Hiatt with the silver trowel symbolic of the traditions of Ivy Day. Armband insignia worn by the guests were designed by Floyd Phillips. Again, later in the cruise, the crew and passengers of the E. M. T. IP S. One Thirty-rive were the guests of the January class at the observance of their Class Day. The first half of the voyage over, the captain and first mate were re-elected, Dorothy AVine- man was chosen keeper of the log and Angelo Angelopolous was named purser. At this time, the following midshipmen were chosen for these positions : Herbert Schwomeyer, gif torian ; Jud Jordan, historian ; Romanious Alvey, prophet ; Angelo Angelopolous, willmaker. The class motto, " We Build the Ladder by Which We Climb, " was chosen, and the banner was de- signed by PToyd Phillips. After six weeks had passed, a few of the pas- sengers were given temporary accommodations Fifteen — ■ in the brig (Green House). Though a great calamity to these unfortunates, their exile serv- ed to spur on to renewed efforts those who were lagging. Discovering a number of budding Thespians among the voyagers, the officers prevailed upon them to entertain the fleet with a bit of blood and thunder drama entitled " Captain Apple- jack " . The success of this play was largely due to the expert direction of Miss Vivian I . Webster. Following this play came Ivy Day. the first social function of the voyagers. The program was efficiently sponsored by Miss Violet K. Beck. A swing band provided music for a dance in the girls ' gymnasium which followed the program in the auditorium where the songs written by Romanious Alvey and by Roy Welch had been sung. Class Day, the most important social func- tion of the entire cruise, Avas celebrated with exercises in the auditorium under the sponsor- ship of Miss Margaret Kellenbach, and a dance followed. As the first of June, the day of disembarking at Port Commencement, draws near, all realize with regret that their days on the old liner are numbered. Vet they are confident that with the ideals inspired during this cruise, they shall prove worthy of the traditions established at Manual.

" CAPTAIN APPLEJACK " by Walter Hackett Members of the June ' 36 Senior Class success- fully presented " Captain Applejack, ' ' " a pirate- day play written by Walter Hackett, in the school auditorium on April 2 and 3. The great success of the production may be attributed to the willing cooperation of teachers, directors, stage hands and students. It also offers further proof of the ability of Miss Vivian Webster, the director, and Mr. E. Edward Green, the assist- ant director of the production. The story concerns Ambrose Applejohn, a man who, up to the start of the story, has wanted everything to be as it has always been. How- ever, he changes quite suddenly, deciding to sell the house in which he lives with his aunt, Mrs. Agatha Whateombe, played by DeLoris Rahm, and his ward, Miss Poppy Paire, portray- ed by Goldie Pardo, and starts out in search of romance and adventure. Ambrose Applejohn, a role very well protrayed by Verlin Hcrsh- berger, inserts an advertisement in a popular magazine in order to hasten the sale of his home. At that time, however, lie meets opposition, for Poppy, who secretly loves him, and his aunt dislike having any change in routine. Am- brose declares his love of romance and sends his aunt to bed weeping. After explaining his pur- pose to Poppy, she too is sent to bed when the butler, Lush, played by Robert Mathews, enters to tell the time of night. A wild storm is rag- ing outside, and a knock is heard on the door — a very unusual event in this family. Ambrose, thinking it is a sale for the house, has Lush invite the visitor in. Geraldine Gilliatt enters in the person of Anna Valeska. a foreign im- postor, who, by feigning a story of Bolsheviks and stolen jewels, forces Ambrose to fall in love with her. As she fears the pursuit of a Russian spy, Ivan Borolsky (Ralph Brown), she flees to another room when a second knock is heard on the door. A Mr. and Mrs. Pengard, played by Herschell Hinkley and Mildred Minchin, now enter the picture. They, too, misrepresent their purpose in order to obtain a secret parch- ment leading to a hidden treasure which is re- ported to be in the house. Sending Ambrose out of the room on a useless errand, they begin the search for the treasured map. After they leave, the Russian spy, Borolsky, plays a dram- atic bit with Ambrose. The first act closes with Applejohn declaring to Poppy that he has al- ways wanted adventure and that now " By Heaven " he has found it. The second act is a dream of Applejohn s concerning the parchment which he has found during the course of Act I. In this dream he is no longer Ambrose Applejohn, but is Captain Applejack, a swash-buckling, swagger- ing, domineering captain of a mutinous pirate crew. The third act brings the happy ending when the hero finally realizes that romance and adventure may be found at home. The supporting east included Irene Raesner as Palmer, the maid ; Perry Key as Johnny Jason, the agent selling the property: and the pirate crew which consisted of Thomas John- son, Harold Schrowe, Virgil Freije, Fred Duecker, Harold Thornberry, John Ellis, Jim- mie Gribben, Chester Moore and Perry Key. A very adequate stage crew, under the direc- tion of Mr. Finch, did much toward completing the success of the production. — Sixteen CLASS PLAY CAST OF CHARACTERS Lush Robert Mathews Poppy Faire Goldie Pardo Mrs. Agatha Whatcombe DeLoris Rahm .Ambrose Apple John Verlin Hershberger Anna Valeska Geraldine Gilliatt Mrs. Pengard Mildred Minchin Horace Pengard Herschell Hinkley Ivan Borolsky Ralph Brown Palmer Irene Raesner Dennet Fred Duecker Johnny Jason Perry Key Pirates Thomas Johnson, Harold Schrowe, Virgil Freije, Fred Duecker, Harold Thorn- berry, John Ellis, Jimmy Gribben, Chester Moore and Perry Kev.

Seventeen- CLASS DAY By magaukt i-ost.ma Gaily, yet regretfully, we took our scats for the last class party of our high school years. We were glad, as we always had been, to have a chance to break away from the regular routine of school work, but we were sad when we thought that this event would end our happy high school days. However, our spirits were lightened when the curtains opened un a farce representing our own class play. " Captain Applejack " . Poppy, played by William Kosaveach, was pacing the floor in what appeared to be a feminine evening- gown with low hack and sparkling diamonds. Pacing in the opposite direction was Auni Agatha, James Allanson, groomed in feminine garb but lacking a feminine voice. They seem- ed troubled about Ambrose or Captain Apple- jack, played by Goldie Pardo, who entered, making a remarkable effort to look manly in oversized pants. He dismissed them both as Anna, Jimmie Cole, entered and fainted in his arms. Love at first sight! The Hindoo magi- cian, Ruth Reed, and his wife, Charles Arthur, spoiled the enchantment by another feigned fainting. This time the victim was brought hack to consciousness by the fanning of the Hindoo ' s arms. The maid, Emery Creekbaum, with typi- cal waitress costume disclosing her well-groomed legs, cried " Lights Out " in a deep masculo- feminine voice as the curtain closed. The pirates, Esther Katz, Marie Moates, Marie Haynes, Rose Ellen Berndt, Louise Bourgonne, Margaret Postma and Jessie Winkler, led by Borolsky, Maureen O ' Dwyer, completed the hil- arity by rumbling " aye " in high-pitched voices. The fight between Captain Applejack and the seven pirates for the treasure chest was lost by the pirates, who dragged off their wounded com- rades. The Captain, to he thorough with the folly, presented the treasure chest containing valuable documents to Poppy. On the top of all other documents in the che.-t was the class history. As it was read by Jud Jordan, historian, we heard for the last time what we did during our four years of study and fun at Manual: many of these events wo will long remember. But not for long were we allowed to be ser- ious, for Romanious Alvey, class prophet, be- gan his illustrative description of our fellow classmates in future years. Here and there came a sudden burst of laughter as a senior heard himself or herself described. Could it ever happen ! The next reach into the chest brought forth our will written by Angelo Angelopolous, the legal minded member of our class. And in the bottom of the chest we found our giftorian ' s speech wherein he distributed our few but im- portant possessions among the remaining Man- ualites. .Much of the success of our Class Day program we owe to the efficient sponsorship of Miss Kell- enbach and the other teachers who came to our assistance. CLASS WILL By ANGELO ANGELOPOLOUS We, the members of the June 1936 Senior Class at Emmerich Manual Training High School, city of Indianapolis, county of Marion, State of Indiana, being of sound mind, memory and understanding, do make, publish and de- clare the following as and for our last Will and Testament that is to say : 1st, We hereby revoke all wills, codicils, or testamentary instruments by us at any time heretofore made. 2nd.

I shall not fall! ' In face of storms and heating winds It thrives and onward vines. The lender, graceful ivy there Tenaciously it climbs. We, like the ivy, must not fall, Though storms upon us heat- Steadfastly on, through rain or sun At last success we ' ll meet. Thy teachings, Manual, are to us As the vine upon the wall. Our Manual song is the song of the vine — I ' ll climb! I must not fall! Manual has several traditions which will al- ways remain. One of these is the observance of Ivy Day which lias been celebrated by every graduating class since 1909. To continue this custom, we, the graduating class of June ' 36, gathered in the auditorium on the afternoon ox May 17 to observe our own Ivy Day. As we filed down the aisles, we beheld our banner designed by Floyd Phillips. It was a beautiful blue and white emblem displaying a rising siui and carrying our motto, " We Build the Ladder by Which We Climb. " As we looked, many of us realized we must begin to build our ladder in the early morning of our lives if we wish to attain success. A skit, " They Reminisce, " written and spon- sored by Miss Beck, was presented by Hope Brown, Robert Crouch, Alma DeBaun, Geral- dine Gilliatt, Herschell Kopp and Richard Wen- ning. Gathered in a living-room, the group discussed outstanding events of the past four years, while members of the class pictured them by pantomime. Some of the incidents recalled to our memory were the visit of the choir from the Arthur Jordan Conservatory of Music, a scene from our class play and a member of the basketball team in action. Concluding the skit, Geraldine Gilliatt sang an Ivy Day song writ- ten by Roy Welch. In a more formal manner, Jack Hiatt, presi- dent of our class, presented the ivy to Mr. McComb, who accepted it on behalf of the school. In his reply, Mr. McComb talked to the class about happiness and our opportunity for find- ing it. Jack Hiatt then gave the silver trowel to the January ' 37 class president, William Egg- Nineteen — ert, and in accepting it, the latter promised to continue the tradition of the ivy vine. Our Ivy Day poem was read by DeLoris Rahm. After singing the Ivy Day song, written by Romanious Alvey, the group adjourned to the girls ' gymnasium for a party, with the January ' 37 seniors as guests. The success of the program was due to Miss Beck, sponsor, and her committee which includ- ed Hope Brown, Alma DeBaun, Velnia Iverson and Floyd Phillips.

CLUBS - ORGANIZATIONS By CAROLINE PATNICK For years Manual has had a group of clubs and organizations, devoted to the enrichment and improvement of student activities. There are two classes of clubs, third period and after- school groups. Some of these organizations are honorary, such as Masoma and Koines, and some give service to the school, as the Service and H. Y. S. Clubs. Others are comprised of stud- ents interested in a special subject, who, with a teacher to sponsor them, have formed a club, such as the Science Club. Special features of various clubs are lectures, motion pictures, trips to local companies and demonstrations. Recreational clubs are formed for the amusement and enjoyment of students. Some of these are Rod and Reel, Manual Friends of Reading and Chess and Checkers. In some clubs, there is a specific requirement for enrollment. For example, in the Odd Num- ber Club, the writing of one short story a sem- ester is the duty of each member. In other groups one has to be enrolled in certain sub- jects, such as the language group and Speech Arts Club. Some of the older organizations of Manual and the dates of their founding are: Masoma, 1914; Koines, 1914; Band, 1915; French, 1919; Odd Number, 1920; and the Junior Red Cross, 1924. In former years all clubs met after school, but because many students could not attend, the time was changed to roll call. The clubs are divided into two sections, X and Y, as they are called. The X clubs meet on alternate Tuesdays, and the Y clubs do likewise ; thus a student may belong to an X and Y club at the same time. It is also possible for a student to belong to an after-school club, thus totaling three clubs. There are 1,250 students in the senior high school, and approximately eight hundred of them belong to clubs. The largest enrollment of any club is that of the Masoma Club which has ninety members. In most of the organizations, the only assess- ment is that necessary for the pictures in the semi-annual Senior Booster. This seldom ex- ceeds fifteen cents. The Forum Club presents each semester a program concerning parliamentary law. All officers of clubs are invited to attend and learn the correct business procedure for a meeting. The Business Girls ' Club has sponsored several shorthand, typewriting, stenotypy and machine calculation contests this semester in the audi- torium. A special feature of the Camera Club is that its members learn to develop their own films. A knowledge of this process besides be- ing quite interesting is useful. For the enjoyment of students and teachers, the Glee Club, Choir, Band and Orchestra pre- sent several musical programs during the semest- er. There are two mil itary organizations at Man- ual—the R, 0. T. C. and Military Club. These numerous student groups tend to round out school life and to allow the individual to seek the association of those whose interests co- incide with his own. MUSIC CLUB This group of music students discuss com- posers and various in- struments. They have had several experi- ments in the labora- tory to demonstrate vibrations of tone.

LEWIS FINCH Thirty-one- ATHLETICS By ANGELO ANGELOPOLOUS With echoes of sports wars long since died away and with athletic paraphernalia tucked away in moth halls for future campaigns, it is truly an enviable record the athletes of the June ' 36 class leave behind for posterity. It is need- less to attempt to paint a word picture of their accomplishments, so we shall say only that they played a major part in bringing Manual its first city basketball championship in the seven of city tournament history, and in giving their alma mater one of the best track teams of recent years. Not enriched in material wealth, they realize that their rewards lie in the respect and admiration of both fellow students and oppon- ents, and in the lessons obtained by " playing the game " . • William Kramer — This speedy gent showed bio hashing spikes to all others in the 220-yard dash in this year ' s city carnival. Ran anchor man on the half-mile relay team which set a new record, 1:36.7. Elected captain this spring, his second year out. William Tavenor — Consistent plugging each year made Bill a first rate dash man. As leadovf man, he sent the 880-yard run relay team off to a flying start. Norman Mueller — Another who cut a big figure in Manual ' s track rejuvenation, for Norm cer- tainly raised the standard of Redskin high jumpers. Capable football reserve. Howard Ellis — Small, but mighty ground gainer with the Paintermen for four years. Howard Deer — Turned in creditable perform- ances as an end on the football eleven. Richard Wenning — It will indeed be a difficult task to replace Dick on tie ' hardwood. Didn ' t report to Bridgford till his junior year, but proceeded promptly to play varsity ball. Turn- ed his attention also to track this spring. Robert Crouch — An A- plus golfer and a good basketball player. Spent two seasons on the bask- etball quintet and three with the linksmen. Bob, captain this year, sel- dom failed to be low medalist for the latter. Ralph Brown — A lad of the links and a really good one, too. Specialized in low scores for three seasons. Leonard Campbell — One of the mighty Painter- men. Booming punts and accurate passes helped win him an all- city backfield berth. An excellent shot putter for three years on the track team. Robert Leachman — Saw- considerable service on the gridiron for four years. Used his fleetness to good advantage with Ank ' s thinly-clads, run- ning the dashes and win- ning third position on the half-mile relay team. Herschell Hinkley — A veteran " hacker " is Ilink, and he usually gets his share of the poinis. Emery Creekbaum — A consistent middle dis- tance performer on the cinder paths this year. Edward Raasch — Ed spent a winter on the re- serve and varsity basketball squads, serving as center. Herbert Schwomeyer — Another lad who will be greatly missed on both the gridiron and hard- wood. Climaxed three years of varsity play on the football squad by garnering an all-city end berth. Gained his second all-city honors while playing guard on the basketball five. Herb also put in three years on the cinder paths. Jack Hiatt — Credited with being the first four- letter man at Manual for several years. Leaves an extra large pair of athletic shoes to be filled, for he was chief ground gainer on the football eleven, backbone of the hardwood quintet de- fense, stellar high jumper among the thinlies and a low scorer on the golf squad. Angelo Angelopolous — Spent four years with the Bridgfordnien, two with the football squad, and one season with the track scpiad. ■ — Thirty -Hoo BASKETBALL TEAM By way of concluding their high school hardwood careeis, which most of them started together as fresh- men, the net squad annexed the coveted City High School Basketball Championship by thumping Shortridge, 30 to Coach: Mr. Oral Bridgford. Captain: Richard Gallamore. ■ ■ I GOLF TEAM After a successful basket ball season, Mr. Bridgford was voted coach of the golf team by the turfmen and re- peated his coaching feat. Coach: Mr. Oral Bridgford. Captain: Robert Crouch. DBDI TRACK TEAM Again Manual is collecting track and field awards after a lapse of many years, and " Ank ' s " enthusiasm says the thinly-clads will continue to do so. Coach: Mr. Ray G. Anken- brock. Captain: William Kramer. Thirty-three — JOKES By HERBERT SCHWOMEYER and JIMMIB GRTBBEN Bell Bob (Five years from now) : But darling, it would be so nice if we could get an extension on the phone. Sis: It would be nicer if we could got an extension on the bill. Round ' n Round 1st Goldfish : Where are you going on your vacation ? 2nd Goldfish: 1 really don ' t know. I ' ve been around the globe thousands of times. Down and Out Sweet young thing: After all, good fighters are artists in their own way, aren ' t they? Leonard Campbell: True enough. They pu ' i living people on canvas. Sour Pickle Goldie declares that a father who comes into the parlor at night and sandwiches himself in between his daughter and her boy friend is a ham. Stair Gazer She sat on the steps in the eventide, Enjoying the balmy air. He came and asked, " Could I sit by your side ? ' ' And she gave him a. vacant stair. Painless Dentistry A man one day to the dentist went, A pin on the seat of the chair was bent, He roared (as the pin put him to rout) : " It the nerve ' s that deep, don ' t pull it out. " On a Diet Johnny Bowman: I just swallowed a o ' reat big worm. James Alianson : Hadn ' t you better tak:3 something for it? Johnny: No, I ' ll just let it starve. Milk-fed Caroline sent her little sister after some ex- tract of beef the other day, and she came back with a bottle of milk. Eraser " Oh, he made love to her beneath a rubber tree, but it ' s too late to erase his mistakes now. " Wrong? Ralph Brown wants to know if you ' ve heard about the absent-minded business man who came in one morning, kissed the desk and dusted off his secretary. Laugh Angelo : Did you hear about Marie Barnes ' marriage to that eighty-five year old comedian? Mose : That ' s just like Marie — anything for a laugh. Why? Queer, isn ' t it — why the night falls — but it doesn ' t break — and the day breaks — but it doesn ' t fall. Unhitched Alma DeBaun says she doesn ' t want to have a hitch-hike wedding. Where, just before the ceremony, there ' s a hitch — the groom hikes! Taxes " In love and governments, " reasons Sara, " too much courtship is bad for the constitu- tion. Out " Here ' s where I spend the evening out, " said the pedestrian as the hold-up man hit him over the head with a lead pipe. Sewed Up Girls should remember that a love knot is best tied with a single beau. Burnt Up Jeanne: Did you hear about the panic in the picture show ? Hinkle: No. A fire? Jeanne: No, the lights were turned on sud- denly. Yeah, Man! Boss: On your way there you will pass a baseball park. Verlin Hershberger (Hopefully) : Yes? Boss: Well — pass it. Sleuth Waiter: How did you find the meat? Jack Hiatt : Just by accident. I moved the potatoes, and there it was. Worries Things will be normal again when the only thing the older generation worries about is the younger generation. A Slight Mistake Detectives were questioning a negro charged with stealing a typewriter. Not getting any- where, one of the officers brought in the mach- ine. " Lawze. man, " the negro exclaimed, " you calls that a typewriter? Ah thought it was a cash register Ah was stearin ' .

We realized that to accomplish our purpose, it would be necessary to conquer every obstacle between our goal and us. Now that the highest peak of our high school career has been reached and we are about to enter the future, we feel that we cannot mis- carry with such a motto to urge us on. The future is likened to a high mountain climb, and our graduation from Manual may be regarded as the first peak reached in our journey. As we have made our first successful ascent, we now will put forth our utmost efforts to uphold our illustrious motto, " Conquering and Still To Conquer. " ' FOR THEIR UNFAILING INTEREST To the members of the school faculty we ex- press our sincere appreciation for their expert guidance and unfailing interest which have made our four-year stay at Manual one that we shall ever remember and recall with the most pleasant feeling. The countless small difficulties that arose dur- ing those years are almost forgotten, and we realize now thai we have been experiencing probably the smoothest sailing that we shall ever know. We shall doubtless realize, even more, in the future what the valuable assistance rendered by Manual ' s faculty has meant to us. TO A BELOVED CLASS SPONSOR To Miss Lena Brady, our roll room teacher and faculty sponsor, we dedicate this Booster in the hope of showing in a small way our sincere appreciation for her excellent leadership. Al- though she was continually busy fulfilling her varied duties and assignments, she never failed to relinquish her time willingly to any member of the class who needed her aid. Never did she forget to encourage us when we were down- hearted nor to spur us on with her personal in- terest. To her, indeed, we owe a great debt. TEN CLASS HISTORY By ROBERT HALL Iii September, 1932, we, a group of young warriors, entered the field of battle to win a high school education. Under the tutelage of the faculty, this group of rookies was quickly whip- ped into well-trained fighters. With the well known battle cry, " We Can. We .Must, We Will, " we engaged in our first encounter of Freshtown. After surviving a barrage of books, elevator tickets, and upperclassmen ' s pranks, we finally were victorious. Without reinforcements we were marched into our second great battle, that of Sophoburg. Hav- ing more confidence and securing revenge on the new ranks in Manual ' s great army, we be- came geniuses on the battlefield, so we thought, but the small reconnaissance patrol of teachers outwitted us, and put us back in our place. When we entered our third year, we were more conscientious about the work confronting us. Still, however, we liked our fun and de- voured all possible pleasures. Toward the end of this skirmish, we began to realize that we were taking the struggle for an education more seriously, and that the war would soon be over. When we left Juniorville, there was a decided d ifference between the combatants then and the ones that had started the contest nearly three years before. Knowing that our enlistment was Hearing an end. we determined to set an ex- ample for our oncoming troops. We wanted lo prove that we were the best troops ever to fight at Senior Heights. Before we entered our last great conflict, we realized the necessity of confident leaders. As a result, John Cristina was made general (pres- ident) ; Richard Gallamore, major-general, (vice-president) ; Ruth Sohn, war correspondent (secretary) ; and Wilbur Elliott, brigadier gen- eral i treasurer). Miss Brady was again at her post of commander-in-chief (sponsor ' . The football squads did not fare exceptionally well on their patrols, but they displayed the fine characteristics of all Manual elevens. During the first half of the conflict, we were cordially entertained behind the fronl lines by the June class at their Ivy and Class Days. At the Ivy Day exercises, Walter Presecan, June class president, passed the trowel, symbolic of our senior traditions to John Cristina, our pres- ident. On these occasions we wore the arm band designed by William Doherty. Bright red was chosen as our class color. After the enter- tainment, we " dug in " to accomplish some- thing in our fight. It was in this fourth and last great battle that we were shocked with the news of the loss of the leader of the speech division. Miss Lola I. Perkins. Her place was filled by .Mr. Edward Green, who led us to victory at class play. A few of our comrades fell by the wayside in this furious battle of Senior Heights and were put to rest at Greenhouse. We missed them, but the lack of their presence warned us to be more precautionary. Because our officers had performed so capably and efficiently, we re- elected them, Special correspondents for our final feat were chosen. Herbert Newman was made prophet; Sam Oslos, willmaker; Robert Hall, historian, and Russell Burger, giftorian. Preparations then began in earnest for two of our greatest days, Ivy Day and Class Day. The banner submitted by Robert Hall and the motto, " Conquering and Still To Conquer " were chosen. Time out was taken from our battles for these two occasions. Ivy Day consisted of the customary trowel and ivy preesntations by John Cristina. A skit written by Wilbur Elliott and the class songs were the other features of the day. The party with a musical floor show climaxed the event. Class Day featured the special correspondents reports within a school room scene. Like the previous party, the Class Day entertainment was a complete success. These occasions were under the guidance of Miss Vivian AVebster and Mr. Wright respectively. With the inspiration of our class motto and the success of our class functions, including the pre- sentation of our class play, " Growing Pains, " we concluded the battle of Senior Heights, and the treaty was signed in January. For their four years service in the football division of our army, John Cristina and Frank Schneider were awarded block " M " sweaters by the school. And so another battle has been won on the great battlefield of E. M. T. H. S. When we entered this last battlefield we wanted to be the best troops that had ever fought. As we go we feel that we have won our laurels and we hope that the memories of the January, 1936, class that will remain behind will be only pleas- ant ones. It is with regret but also pleasant an- ticipation that we leave the sacred site. We know that on the great battlefield of life to which we are about to go, we will fight better with our training from Manual to help us. ELEVEN CLASS PLAY -By ROSEMARY HANNA One of the most humorous characters in " Growing Pains " was the ungainly Elsie (Vernie Warrenburg), who is shown in the above picture hanging her head bashfully as her mother (LaVetta Adamson ) seeks to persuade Mrs. Mclntyre (Ruth Messersmith ) , that her son. George (James Milam), should escort Elsie to the dance. " GROWING PAINS " by Aurania Rouverol With the cooperation of teachers, directors, students and backstage hands, " Growing Pains, " a modern comedy written by Aurania Kouverol, was successfully presented in the school auditorium as the January ' 36 senior class production, December 5 and 6. Under the capable direction of Mr. E. Edward Green, as- sisted by Miss Vivian L. Webster, the first sen- ior class play coached at Manual by the new speech teacher, proved highly entertaining. The play took place in the home of Mr. Mc- lntyre, a gray-haired, studious professor, a lily portrayed by Robert Hall, and Airs. Mclntyre, a patient wife and mother, characterized by Ruth Messersmith. The heroine, Terry, played so convincingly by Maxine Merrick, had great difficulty in deciding whether to remain a tom- boy or become grown-up. Her brother George, a perfect example of adolescent youth, was played by James Milam. When the first scene opened, the family was seated on the sunporch, -and George was pleading with his father for a .car. With the help of Terry, he finally gained permission to purchase an automobile from Omar, stuttered by John Follett. A few weeks later, George and Terry were permitted to give their first party. Jack Tice, as Brian, the dash- ing youth with whom Terry was deeply infatuat- ed, was overcome by the charm of Prudence Darl- ing, portrayed by Myrtle Roudebush, the siren who had just moved into the neighborhood. George also believed himself to be in love with her, but when he met Vivian, enacted by Erma Eikins, he forgot her entirely. Much of the comedy was supplied by Vernie Warrenburg, who played the part of Elsie Pat- terson, the very homely girl who was forced to go places at the command of her ambitious moth- er, portrayed by LaVetta Adamson. Others win) played their supporting roles well were Mildred Walther as Sophie, the maid ; Robert Specker as the traffic officer; Russell Burger as Dutch ; Verne Jacobs as Hal ; Eugene Zuker- man as Pete ; Ida Mai Wilson as Patty ; Ruth Sohn as Jane; Hilda Roth as Miriam and Rose- may Morris, Okie Hightower, Gr ace Kattau, Marjorie Cronin, Harold Yeagy, John Cristina, Lawrence Rettig and Herbert Newman as guests. A great deal of the success of the play was brought about through the splendid cooperation of the backstage crew headed by Forrest Meyers under the direction of Mr. Lewis E. Finch. Other members of the faculty and student body who gave their valued assistance are Miss Violet Beck and the properties committee ; Miss Gladys Denny and her assistants on the costume com- mittee; .Miss Edith M. Compton and her sewing class ; Mr. A. L. Weigler and his woodworking class ; Miss Lena Brady as business manager ; Miss Estelle P. Izor, who was in charge of post- ers; Miss Elizabeth Hodges and her student as- sistants on the newspaper publicity committee ; Miss Helen Haynes and Mr. G. W. Trickey, who supervised the advertising ; Mr. Oram Davis and Miss Ivy Fuller, who were in charge of make-up and Mary Dunlop, prompter.

THIRTEEN CLASS DAY By MILDRED WALTHER On January 10, the seniors marched import- antly down the aisles of the auditorium for the last time. Their feelings were a mixture of joy and sorrow. Bid the sorrow was dispelled as the curtain rose upon such gloom shatterers as Olive Hoyt and a numb er of others. Today, Class day. was their day and they were go- ing to make the best of it. With this feeling plus the performance made possible by Mr. Wright and his talented actors and actresses, the occasion was a huge success. The opening scene was indeed an all too fam- iliar one. a scene in which we had all taken part for four years. [lave you guessed it? That ' s right, a schoolroom. While we were getting used to this, Grace Kattau tried to go inhepend- ent on us hut she was fooled: Robert Pad and ■lack Tice decided to incorporate, and they all went " A Little Bit Independent " together. Next in line, Robert Hall, just in case we would forget and become too superior minded, read our class history, reminding us again of our four years of strife and hardship mingled with innumerable pleasures. About this time Maxine Merrick, who once again returned to her childhood, a trifle jealous this time, rendered a song called, " Rhythm In M Nursery Rhymes. " Suddenly one, Samuel Oslos, let it he known dial he. too. was something in his class, and pro- ceeded to bestow graciously upon various per- sonages certain gifts from our inimitable class. The in t number enacted before our eyes was a lap dance by Rosemay Morris and Marjorie Cronin, whose talent has long been accepted by the whole school. And now came the most looked forward to evenl id ' the day. It was Wilbur Elliott ' s mast- erpiece, a radio skit, entitled, ' ' The Voice of Experience, " advertising Gurp ' s Cough Drops, and featuring Mildred Sommerville, Charlie Passo, John Crist ina and Wilbur Elliott. While we were recovering from this hilarious affair, (too bad Mr. Elliott hadn ' t brought some samples of Gurp ' s products) Ida Mai Wilson favored us with a recitation. As a. grand finale. Myrtle Roudebush, brought down the house by singing that tonsil-tickling tune " The Music (iocs Down And Round. " If tins wasn ' t the best Class Day, sponsored by the best class, from the best school in the best city then . . . well — well — well — you should have been there. IVY DAY -By OKLE HIGHTOWER The January L936 class conquered the first regiment of its senior activities on November 28, 193- " ). This was set aside as Ivy Day. During the tenth period, a program was given in the school auditorium. As the seniors marched in, the banner, bearing the class motto, " Conquer- in, and Still to Conquer, " mel their eyes. This banner, by Robert Hall, was cleverly designed in red and white, the class colors. The class remained standing while they sang " The Ivy Vine, " a song composed by Eugene Zukerman. As the curtain was drawn, a group of Manual seniors, Wilbur Elliott, Gladys Brown, John Cristina, Okie Iiightower, Russell Burger, and Ruth Messersmith, wandered on the stage in quest of an ivy vine. Just as they were about to become disgusted with the search, an old forester, portrayed by Robert Specker, came in and explained the significance of the ivy vine. As he told the life of the vine, through spring, summer, autumn and winter, several senior girls interpreted the growth of the ivy by a dance. Those taking part in the dance were Lena George, Marjorie Cronin, Erma Elkins, Myrtle Roudebush, Glodine Stringer, Maxine Merrick, Rosemay Morris, Grace Kattau and Vernie Warrenburg. At the conclusion of this, John Cristina. our class president, presented the ivy vine to Mr. Sharp, who represented Mr. McComb in the hitter ' s absence. John then gave the symbolic trowel to Jack Hiatt, president of the June ' 36 class, and he, in turn, accepted it with a prom- ise on behalf of his class to continue the tradi- tion of the ivy vine. For the success of this program, a large vote of thanks goes to Miss Webster, for without her splendid help as sponsor, the committee could not have developed so fine or impressive a program. The program committees consisted of Myrtle Roudebush (chairman), Gladys Brown, Wilbur Elliott, Ruth Messersmith and Okie Iiightower. A party and class dance were held at the close of the program in the girls ' gym. with the June ' 36 seniors and the faculty as guests.
