Iml. o anfioo ; FOREWORD c(y ITH the hope that this book will be a tangible reminder of the joy, pain, work, and play which constitute hi h school days, this June ' 37 Senior Booster has been edited. BETTY STICH, Editor-in-chief ESTELLE LEVIN, Assistant Editor CHARLES LUDLOW, Business Manager 2P SENIORS SENIOR S! Ah, yes, SENIORS! Wheat a magical term, at least to SENIORS. In the next few pages of this SENIOR BOOSTER will he found pictures of SENIORS, names of SENIORS, likes of SENIORS, dislikes of SENIORS, joys of SENIORS, ambitions of SENIORS, deeds of SENIORS. ' friends of SENIORS, hobbies of SENIORS, loves of SENIORS, and what-have-you. To say the least, it is mostly what-have-you. This year ' s grad- uating class is 254 strong, the largest class ever to graduate from Manual. And in it is anything from soup manufacturing aspirants to nuts manufacturing aspirants. Of course, just who these aspirants are won ' t be mentioned here, but it wouldn ' t surprise anyone if it turned out to be true. As Miss Knox says, " After years of teaching, nothing would surprise me. " So it is with this senior class. Nothing woidd surprise us, either. For this senior class, like other senior classes, has one outstand- ing fault — it is composed of nothing but seniors. Yes, seniors is a magical term, at least to seniors. For have you ever heard Miss Webster or Mr. Green trying to teach a senior how to say " Senior " with emphasis? No! Our two speech teachers are constantly trying to muffle the braying of seniors when they say SENIOR. But still it does mean something for a senior to say, " I ' m a SEN- IOR. " For who else can sit semi-recumbently with the girls in the auditorium; who else can sell elevator passes; who else can think up a thousand and one excuses; who else can sprawl so comfortably in his seat; who else can cut as easily; who else can get so many part times; who else can promenade so fashionably through the halls; who else can go to the Ivy Day Dance; who else can be so unconcerned about everything and anything; who else can forge report cards; who else can lunch with the boys in the lunchroom ; who else can drive the ole man ' s car to school; who else can be so cocky; who else can attend the Class Day Dance; who else can get all the gals; who else can swing so arrogantly down the hall; who else can swing that gold- plated shovel; and who else has more brass than our band??? Yes, you guessed it, SENIORS! And so we say to you underclassmen, you too will be seniors someday. And when you reach the age of having twenty-four cred- its to your credit, and it has been an age to some of our seniors, you too can say, as we have said, " Now, I am a SENIOR! " Oh! We almost forgot the most important thing that makes a senior ' s life just what it is, and that is, " Now, I am a SENIOR at EMMERICH MANUAL TRAINING HIGH SCHOOL! " —MEREDITH 7!! 98K « 3f To the Faculty . . . To whom we shall always be indebted for pre- paring us for life — the .June ' 37 class dedicates this page.

As freshmen we listened atten- tively as Mr. E. H. Kemper McComb, Manual ' s principal, instructed us upon our conduct as students of E. M. T. H. S. Finally we were dismissed and es- corted to our assignments by helpful Roines boys and Masoma girls. We were now well started on what promised to be four happy years at Manual. Our first year was a horror of sophomore ridicule, diligent study (in some cases) and, worst of all, " one through ten. " — June ' 37 Marches On. September. 19.34 As haughty sophomores we entered school again obsessed with one desire — ■ to get vengeance on the new group of freshmen. For a few glorious weeks we made them suffer even as we had. However, our teachers settled us down (after the first six weeks), and our second year passed smoothly. — June ' 37 Marches On. September. 1935 Now the frivolous and carefree days were beginning to fade. We attacked our studies zealously and began to think more seriously of the future. Many of our members were becoming prominent in school activities. Others were left behind in the battle for knowledge. — June ' 37 Marches On. September. 1936 Fresh from a restful vacation we entered Manual for our last glorious year. Knowing the necessity for capable class officers, we selected Don Emery, president; Wilbur Meyer, vice-president; Betty Stich, secretary, and Vestal Smith, treasurer. Miss Knox was appointed as class sponsor. Emerald green was chosen as class color. We wore our arm band, designed by Aileene Bra- zeal, at the January ' 37 Ivy Day for the first time. After finishing a joyous first semester, we elected officers for the coming half year. Don Emery was re- elected president ; Wilbur Meyer and Ruth Hale, vice-presidents; Betty Stich and Frances Davis, secretaries ; Vestal Smith and Lorene Hartman, treas- urers. Other offices were filled by Max Stein, prophet; Frances Davis, will maker; Dorothea Ann Graber, giftorian, and Ted Etherington, historian. " To Seek, To Find, But Not to Yield " was chosen as our class motto. On Ivy Day our class banner, designed by Kennard Kennedy, was proudly displayed. Don Emery as class president furthered tradition by presenting Mr. McComb with the silver trowel. A dance followed in the boys ' gymnasium. It was at this time that we were deeply grieved by the untimely passing of Mr. Ankenbrock, one of our faculty members. Several talented actors were discovered among us and a superior play, Remember the Day, was presented on May 6 and 7 under the able direction of Mr. Green. Class Day, our last important social function, was celebrated May 26 with exercises in the auditorium and the customary dance afterward. It is with joy and yet sorrow that we realize the time for parting is immi- nent. Still we realize that this school will never really be lost to us, but that in the future we ma} 7 return again and in a measure relive our four happy years at Manual. — June ' 37 Marches On. —TED ETHERINGTON IVY DAY Ivy Day! How well we shall remember it! Numerous were the occasions and events we encountered at Manual, hut we will remember none so clearly and vividly as our Ivy Day, the day when we planted the traditional ivy vine against the wall of Manual. As we filed down the aisles of the auditorium, all other thoughts were immediately dismissed from our minds, for we saw on the stage our beautiful class banner. The deep, green letters, " To seek, to find, but not to yield, " were em- broidered on a silver silk background. Upon seeing this, we were even more impressed by the significance of our motto than ever before. We are grateful to Kennard Kennedy, capable de- signer of our banner, and to Vivian McClellan, who made it so artistically. We remained standing while we sang our Ivy Day song, written by Fema Alhean. This was followed by the recitation of, " Heights Un- conquered, " our Ivy Day poem, by Beatrice Budnick. Then, in a more serious manner, the green sprig of ivy was planted by Don Emery, our president, who presented the traditional silver trowel, used in planting the ivy, to our prin- cipal, Mr. McComb. Mr. McComb acknowl- edged his acceptance and promised to pass the trowel on to the president of the next grad- uating class on its Ivy Day. To continue the ceremonies, a double quar- tette composed of Sophie Camhi, Virginia Fox. De Lois Swoboda. Pauline Mitchell, Robert Sponsel, Leslie Stallwood, Frederick Raker, and Chester Davis sang an Ivy Day song com- HEIGHTS UNCONQUERED Beatrice Budnick We come our Ivy Vine to plant Close to a solid wall And casually we say " ' twill grow " F ' or little do we know That braced against that pillar strong Begins the Ivy ' s strife, For it will ever reach and rise And conquer heights as prize. So, as the vine, we too shall strive We, too, seek heights to climb For we are young; let youth not fail Life ' s wall is ours to scale. posed by Hildagarde Kleffner. To conclude the program, the class repeated its motto. After the program, we all went to the boys ' gymnasium where we engaged in an Ivy Day party, with the Manual Pep Band, under the direction of Kephart Linson, as the entertain- ment. We wish to thank Miss Vivian Webster, in charge of Ivy Day, for a successful program. Also, our sincere appreciation goes to the pro- gram committee consisting of Fema Albean, Janet Hatten, Jack Kistner, Thomas O ' Nan, Mildred Otting, and Jack Retherford, and to all the members of the social committee. And so, in parting, the June ' 37 Class, also, has left for its school an undying remembrance of its class. A little sprig of ivy — to grow and live! —ISADORE CAMHI IVY VINE To the tune of " Chapel in the Moonlight ' Words by Fema Albean On the wall of Manual Training We will plant our ivy vine To the sky it will be aiming And upward will twine. It will be our June class token Which we ' ll cherish for always As we look with our hearts broken When we think of Manual days. When the ivy starts its climbing Then we all dispersed will be And our lives will be in rhyming As we enter life ' s great sea. How we ' ll love to look back on it As we think of days gone by When we all were there together Our friendship to tie. BEAUTIFUL IVY Words and Music by Hildagarde Kleffner Beautiful Ivy Climbing so high As if to reach, that Heaven so high. Out of the forest Lovely and fresh Ever to guide us To success. Ivy, Beautiful Ivy May you ever represent Our golden class. Beautiful Ivy Growing so tall May you outshine them One and all. « 23f PHOTOGRAPHICAL ESSAY BY LEWIS E FINCH CLASS SCORES DRAMATIC HIT The class play production, Remember the Day, written by Philo Higley and Philip Dun- ning, and presented by the June ' 37 class on May 7, 1937, in the auditorium, is regarded as an outstanding play in the annals of Manual ' s dramatic history. This three-act play, under the ca- pable direction of Mr. Green, assisted by Miss Webster and Elsie Beth Sutter, occurs around the year 1906 in a Middle Western town. The plot centers around the lives of Miss Nora Trinell (a youthful school teacher), appeal- ingly portrayed by Frances Davis, and her favorite pupil, Dewey Roberts, realistically presented by Wilbur Meyer. An understanding and lasting love grows between the little boy, who is in- terested in ships, and the attractive school teacher, who was born in a seaboard town. Other leads were ably taken by Henrietta Schwartz, who vividly staged the role of Kate, the devilish little girl in love with Dewey.

Haynes IN APPRECIATION Endorsing our high school education in Manual Training, we seniors can self-assuringly be proud of our four years of progress. The highlights of our education in Manual have a wide scope. Our conception of the value of time is more pronounced; our cultural interests are intensified and more numerous; our minds are trained to think more clearly — all these results are keener than our habits and traits during our first semesters of high school. But one of the outstanding factors in our education lias been the close association with other students and teachers. We have begun our dealings with other humans in the demo- cratic spirit so prevalent in Manual. Group coordination has been taught us from the beginning. This spirit of cooperation with our co-workers will be vital to our success, a foundation for our future life. Therefore, we seniors thank Manual for the fine opportunities to build our characters. We are grateful for this fine and upright phase of life which Manual has offered us. TO SEEK, TO FIND, BET NOT TO YIELD No higher standard could be adopted by a member of the June ' 37 class than the class motto, " To seek, to find, but not to yield. " The phrase, to seek, expresses the theme song of every high school graduate. For the first time we must set our own goal and strive for it sans the direction of a parent or teacher. Some will set worthy goals ; others, unworthy ones. Regardless of the goal, some will find; others will yield before they find; some after finding, will yield. Those, however, who seek, find, but do not yield, will at- tain what the world terms success. Greater than this superficial feeling is the innermost one of happiness which comes to those who seek, find, but do not yield. Such a feeling truly compensates for the efforts and persevering spirit which are requisite to success. Then will the meaning embodied in the few words take on an even finer significance. 28 CLUBS As through these next pages you do thumb, You ' ll find pictures of clubs worth while; And most of us posed in our school-day best While the cameraman said, " Now smile !

THE COURT OF THE QUEEN KEMEMBEU THE DAY When baked beans were a daily delicacy — when to go up the wrong stairs marked you as either a freshman or a senior — when you walked ' round and round the corridors until you had lost all sense of direction, — when you deserted the study-hall for the library just so that you could sit with " him " or " her " ? When years have effaced memories of all but pleasant events, these are some of the highlights which will dominate reminis- censes. There will be recalled that time you started for the girls ' locker rooms, but by some queer twist of Fate, ended in the boys ' locker rooms. Will you ever forget your first couple of days at Manual when you were determined not to give yourself away as a freshie, but the rooms on the third floor were so hard to find without looking at the numbers ? Even though you didn ' t wear green, some- how the entire student body seemed to know that you were one of the uninitiated. Remember the day the captain of the foot- ball team signed your Senior Booster? What freshman girl ever escaped a severe attack of athletic-hero-worship? There were those days of reckoning, — not report card days, — when you owed Mr. Moffat a minimum of twenty cents for the privilege of a wisecrack at a penny per. The outstanding event which comes to most students more than once in a lifetime is a trip (not of pleasure) to the office. From no place else in Manual is one called for and escorted to. Second only to Boston ' s favorite dish comes the Brown Giant stand. Here, one buys a Brown Giant for five cents. Even a book of fairy-stories costs a couple of dol- lars and with only a few fairies, elves, and dwarfs thrown in to balance the difference. The bridge connecting the newer addition to the older building can well be termed the Bridge of Sighs, when one is coming from the newer to the older building. The heights of perfection could be reached if the traffic across the bridge were one-way — from the old building to the new one. Remember the day you first were among those socially prominent to such an extent that your name appeared in Meredith ' s or one of his predecessor ' s columns ? You pre- tended to be angry, but you weren ' t, really. The girls will never forget the murderous feeling which entered their hearts (or souls, for the more heartless) when just in the midst of giving their faces a false front, the lights went out. The boys just can ' t resist that light-switch. Everyone has experienced at some time or other, that curiosity as to where the tower stairs lead. Those who climbed the stairs — and incidentally came the closest to heaven they had ever been — found nothing but some pigeons. But then, some people like the little feathered creatures. Remember the day you tried to slip out of the lunchroom without a pass and found that no one was even watching you. This might be labelled. " You ' re making a mountain out of a mole-hill. " All these recollections will occur when years from now you meet a former school- friend and your conversation is punctuated with the phrase, " Remember the Day . " -BETTY STICH « 44f To Ray Ankenbrock, our former track coach, we dedicate the following pages of sports. Every- body ' s friend, he gave of time and energy for twelve years to help promote the spirit of fair play among boys. May his jovial spirit ever lin- o-er in the halls of Manual ! ATH LETICS AS the last tape is broken, the last whistle sounded, and the echoes of the final gun- shot die away into the glorious past of Manual ' s sport history, we think of the boys who have helped to make it so. Some have been of little renown; others were names to be found upon the lips of every Manual sports fan. All, however, have given of their time and energy to aid in keeping up the sport traditions set up by teams in the past. I t is with these things in mind that we, the staff of the June ' 37 Senior Booster, salute the senior boys who are passing from these portals never again to enter as ath- letes, for their untiring efforts put forth for " the love of the game.

JANUARY 1937 SENIOR BOOSTER E:3ZZZ3 3333ZZZZ3Z23Z23 :v£2 53ZoZ77Zra IVY DAY by MIKE CAMHI As we bid our school farewell, many scenes, events and old Manual traditions flash by in our mind ' s eye. Of these, one certain day seems to stand out far above the others — Ivy Day. And who can help but remember the day we had set apart for the traditional planting of the Ivy, the living- remembrance of our class ' ' As we filed into the auditorium on November 25, we beheld for the first time our beautiful class banner designed by our treasurer, Robert Davis. With a warm, silver background, our motto. " Striving Ever; Yielding Never, " color- ed in a reddish orange, inspired us with deeper meaning of its words than ever before. The year ' 37, colored in gold, added to the beauty of the banner. A token of our appreciation goes to Robert Davis, and his assistants, Max Metzler, Joe Prokl and Margaret Newport, who held the banner. To start the program, we arose to sing the Ivy song written by La Verne Williams. Follow- ing the song, Mildred Wall told the history of the Ivy. Some clarinet selections precede the story of the Ivy by Mildred Moon, class secre- tary. Maurice Wickliff, our musical-minded friend, followed with a piano solo which brought forth demand for an encore. The Four Warblers, including Jack Burns, Jess Marney, Vernon Rosenbaum and Charles Tedrowe. In a more formal manner, the traditional Ivy ceremony followed. Edward Rugenstein, presi- dent of our class, presented the Ivy to Mr. Sand- ers, who represented the principal, Mr. Airt ' omb. In his brief acceptance speech, Mr. Sanders in- terpreted the meaning of our motto. Marshall Busby then paid a tribute to the Ivy in the form of a poem. The traditional presentation of the silver trowel followed. Edward Rugenstein ' presented the trowel to Don Emery, president of the June class. Emery, in his acceptance, promised to uphold all the traditions connected with the Ivy in the future. With that we hied out to the girl ' s gym where a dance was held. The June class, together with the post-graduates, were our guests. The success of the Ivy Day Program was in large part due to the efforts of Miss Kellenbach, with her assistants, William Eggert, Marshall Busby, Dorothy Atkinson, Mildred Brabender and Marjorie Amt. And as we bid our school farewell, we leave the Ivy as a remembrance of our class, to grow on and upward always, undaunted by hazards and hardships soon to come. We leave Manual, soon to forget many of our happy school days, but never to forget, " Our Ivy Day. " AN IVY DAY POEM A TRIBUTE By MARSHALL BUSBY As I gaze upon the Ivy o ' er Manual ' s stately walls, I sense a prouder spirit as my mind ' s eye it en- thralls, What secrets hold you, Ivy, of the classes past and gone? What memories oft approach you as your birth- days come anon? Through winter snows and summer rains Your courage battles on, You climb to higher places past the places ready won. You care not for the dangers of the stony paths of life, For your motto is your guidance, unyielding e ' er to strife. Striving ever ; yielding never ; thus you do in- spire, For like your stringing tendrils, we venture thus afar. We separate our many ways from graduation day, To try our hands at turning the wheels of life away. But tin this day, Old Ivy, we plant beside you, here, An Ivy sprig to signify a start in life ' s great sphere, And when this Ivy plant becomes a full grown Ivy vine, We resolve to hold positions on level with the vine.

Our building masters were ever near us to lend us helping hands in the ship ' s construction, making- sure that we left no weaknesses in her hull and " in ' ards " . Ever in our minds was the perfecting of the rudder to that point where our course could be followed with the greatest success. As our ship neared completion on our third year, our master helped us charter our course to a greater advantage. Then on Ivy Day when our ship was completed, our captain. Her Majesty Lena Brady, hauled up to the mast ' s top our ensign with the words, " Striving Ever; Yielding Never, ' ' inscribed in red on its silver back-ground. Many a hearty yell greeted it, for there was and there will always be our guiding Pilot. Gone Bui Not Forgotten As the years roll by we shall perhaps forget the little everyday incidents at Manual, but the perse- vering spirit of Manual will remain with us interminably. Now we are going- forth into the cold harsh world. No longer will our teachers lend us helping hands to guide us across treacherous crevices in the path of life. Grim reality, with its ups and downs, successes and failures, faces us. However, through the earnest and untiring efforts of the faculty members of Manual who will not accept failures in their dealings with students, we have been placed on an equal basis with the people of the world. May we never disgrace the honored name of Manual by failing to perform the duties of an honor- able American citizen. :■:--- .JANI ' ARY 1 !l ' ■ ' ■ ' SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS HISTORY by FRANCES CARLIN When the locomotive E. M. T. H. S. rolled into Preshville, January, 3933, ;i group of fresh- men enthusiastically climbed aboard ready I ' m- a four year trip around the World of Knowledge. Under our arms we had tucked our books, show- ing plainly we meant to work hard to gain en- trance to Sophville, Juniorville, and finally Seniorville. We were assigned to the last coach where the members of the faculty could instruct us and start us out on the best track. Under this excellent training we soon became full- fledged sophomores. As sophomores we moved to the adjoining coach. With our many friends and acquaintances Manual became just a place for good times. But our teachers soon settled us down, and again we began to work. Many of our class mates soon became known for different activities. Some of the boys went out for football : others, for bask- etball ; many were outstanding with high schol- astic records. Then. The semester sped by and we realized ourselves the smartest class in school, the brilliant juniors. By the time we occupied the third coach, we found that we had lost many of our members. Some became weary on the long journey and dropped out. Others found jolts, while we, the more ambitious, struggled on to find the road leading to Seniorville. In February, 1935, Manual celebrated its fortieth birthday. Several of our class had the great honor of taking part in the pageanl " March of Time, " ' written by Mrs. Ada Bing, head of the English department. Just at this time, we regretted losing our dear speech teach- er, Miss Perkins. In January of 1936 we entered the first coach on the locomotive where, under the guidance of Miss Lena Brady, we chose our officers. William Eggert was made engineer-president; Dorothy Atkinson, fireman-vice-president; Louise Bray, hostess-secretary, and Richard Lowe, brakeman- treasurer. Miss Brady was our conductor-spons- er. Next, a committee was appointed to select the class color. By popular vote Chinese red was chosen; and out of the number of arm band de- signs submitted, Joe Prokl ' s design was the fav- orite. When the June, 1936, seniors invited lis to their Ivy Day, we proudly displayed our arm hand and colors for the first time. Class Day again we promenaded the halls feeling just as important as the graduating seniors themselves. Several honors were bestowed on our class. May Day, Louise Bray represented our class as May Queen while a medal was presented to James Hancock for being the outstanding R. 0. T. ( ' . officer in Manual ' s unit. September brought us together ready for any activity that might come along. A ain we were united in room 217 with Miss Brady . Since we found it was necessary to elect new officers, Ed- ward Rugenstein was elected engineer; Charles Tedrowe, fireman; Mildred Moon, hostess, and Robert Davis, brakeman. We needed a class motto. Mike Camhi was responsible for the motto, " Striving Ever, Yielding Never. " The offices fixed by tradition were tilled by Roberl Paetz, willmaker; William Long, giftorian; and Frances Carlin, historian. It was decided to give the honor of being Editor-in-Chief of our SENIOR BOOSTER to Marshall Busby. His assistants were business manager, Melvin Meyer, and associate editor. Adeline Weaver. On Ivy Day, for the first time, our beautiful banner designed by Robert Davis was exhibited in the auditorium at the end of the day. A dance was given afterwards, and as usual the seniors of room 135 were invited. As every class has a group of theatrical-minded members, so has ours. December 3 and 4 they presented in gala form • " The Torch-Bearers " . Our last social gathering took place January 8, a program and dance in the girls ' gymnasium. Before us for the last time, was our motto, " Striving Ever, Yielding Never. As we grow older and more experienced, may we keep this motto in mind and never yield, but forever strive, strive, strive. JANUARY 19 37 SENIOR BOOSTER w ma mama ' . szssz •. v .v.v; ' MMAMM ;.y-» AM j CL.4SS PL 4F in GLEN BALL George Kellly ' s satirical drama, THE TORCH-BEARERS, entertained approximately one thousand persons in the school auditorium, December 3 and 4. This January senior class play was under the direction of Mr. Edward Green, his assistant, Miss Vivian L. Webster, and the student assistant, Luba Popeheff. In the first scene, Mrs. Pampinelli, as portray- ed by Mildred Wall, conducts a rehearsal of a play in a drawing room of the home of Mr. Fred- erick Ritter — ably portrayed by Sheldon Craig- myle. The play is built around the fact that Mr. Ritter tries to convince his wife, Ruth Gran, that she should not break up his home to become an actress. On returning from the upper regions of the house, Mr. Ritter overhears his wife re- hearsing her part of the play. The first scene closes when he faints, falls downstairs and is carried into the drawing; room unconscious. The following evening - , Mrs. Pampinelli ' s group is staging a play at the Horticultural Hall. It seemed the only things that were successful were the reigning of pandemonium behind the scenes and the dreaming sleep of the stage manager, very realistically portrayed by Jess Marney. Mi ' s. Pampinelli ' s play ended when the ropes broke and the curtains refused to work. Two hours later, Mrs. Pampinelli in the Ritter home again, is planning to surprise Mrs. Ritter with the information that she was the best ac- tress of the play and is to go to Hollywood to try for the movies. Again Mr. Ritter tries to per- suade his wife to remain at home and forget Mrs. Pampinelli ' s statement that she was talent- ed. Mr. Ritter eventually plays a trick with the final results that Mrs. Ritter realizes that her place is at home. The most comical person, perhaps, was be- spectacled, odd Mr. Spindler, as played by Rob- ert Paetz. Other supporting roles were Ruby Miller as Mrs. Nelly Fell, Dorothy Atkinson as the maid, Edward Rugenstein as Mr. Huxley Hossefrosse, Lawrence Weghorst as Teddy Spearing, Helen Colin as Miss Florence Mc- Crickett, Vernon Rosenbaum as Mr. Ralph Twill- er and Mildred Brabender as Mrs. Clara Shep- pard. The stage crew, headed by Mr. Finch, aided considerably in the play ' s success. The cooper- ation of other members of the student body and faculty helped make the production a success. up JANUARY 1937 SENIOR BOOSTER CLASS PLAY THE CHARACTERS (In Order of Appearance) Mr. Frederick Ritter Sheldon Craigmyle Jenny Dorothy Atkinson Mrs. Paula Ritter Ruth Gran Mrs. J.

Through the achievements they have gained on the gridiron, hardwood floor and the cinder track Manual has made an upward trend in sports. Cooperation, coordination and the will to win, alone has made our alma mater a constant menace, in athletics, In all other Local high schools. It was with great esteem and admiration that some of the ardent sport followers of the school were able to witness a righting 1936 Manual bask- etball team annex their initial City Champion- ship title in seven years of competition. In cap- turing this crown the boys upset both Tech and Shortridge on the same day. It is such performances as these that make us stand up and salute our senior athletes. Despite the fact that the January 1937 senior class is small, it has in its folds some excellent talent and it is with great pleasure that we firing be- fore you a complete record of their activities. M — Jess Marney — less topped his high school career consistently playing on the school football team for four years. An excellent lineman and booter was this big boy. Marney also " put the shot " for Coach Ray Ankenbroek ' s thinlyclads. M — Robert Loeper — AAdiile at Manual he played basketball and football. " Schoolboy Loeper " held down a forward position on the basketball team for three years. He ' s a mighty, mighty fail- baseball player on the sandlot, too. M — Don Griffin — " Charge of the light brigade " describes Griffin " s hardwood technique. In- dulged in this sport for three years and turned in creditable performances. It will be difficult to replace Don on the track team for such a good high jumper as he is hard to locate. M — Robert Davis — Never in the annals of Man- ual sports will another " Tuffy " Davis appear. His southern accent and his constant plugging made him a great asset for Coach Painter ' s foot- balll team. M — Jack Burns — Was co-captain of the 1933 city freshman basketball team and later develop- ed into a genuine reserve star. Would have made the varsity team hut he had to " help turn the wheels of justice. " M — Robert Paetz — Played under the tutelage of Coaches Alva Romeiser and Harry Thomas for two years. Was senior student manager for the track squad. Plans on turning into a " hacker. " M — Vernon Rosenbaum — Won an emblem for his superior gymnastic work and found time to be a member of freshman track. M — Joe Prokl — Could play but one year of football in his junior year. M — Edward Barkhau — The ole ' gridiron attract- ed Ed during his freshman and sophomore years. M — William Eggert — ■ " Dishes " played for Romeiser ' s net team during his first year at school. fsr% ' % Yh cJ JANUARY 19 3 7 SENIOR BOOSTER zzszseszssssssss ms szs ttz . ssms The Football Team Three wins and five losses, show the Redskins ' gridiron record for the past season. Even though the records do show five defeats, Coach Harry Painter ' s warriors did a mighty fine bit of playing. One mem- ber of the team gained honor and distinction last season as he was placed among the fifteen best high school football players in the city. That boy was Vestal Smith, diminutive backfield star. Smth ' s fine running, passing and punting made him a triple threat man and a menace to any opposing team. The Basketball Team Although the present hardwood season is not yet over, Manual " s lighting basketball team has compiled so far a fair net record. The defenders of the city championship title, under the instructions of Head Coach Oral Bridgford. are made up of six seniors, three juniors and one sophomore. May the good for- tune, that the team has enjoyed, continue throughout this season. 23 5SSSS3SS5SSSSSSSSSSSSZZSS35 JANUARY 1937 SENIOR BOOSTER a zzzaAi M Mza AUTOGRAPHS ”
