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.

Faculty Adviser Miss Helen Haynes Your Ladder Is No Loftier Than Its Highest Rung. ' 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

CLASS PLAY By IV A MAE STUDEBAKER For the possession of the beauty at his side. Captain Applejack holds his mutinous crew at bay while thinking of the ruse with which to subdue the uprising. " 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
