I i ) ■ i 1 940 Step by step . . . to the Top IT was a mysterious thing — no one seemed to know whence it led or what purpose it had in the mad merry-go-round of Manual life. As freshmen we often gazed at IT in unmasked wonder — at the curious winding stairway reaching to we knew not what heights! Unlike the other all too common stairs, this puzzle had no " Up with the sun, down with the moon. " It seemed to lead but one way — -UP! But we had little time to spend on an odd circular staircase — there was so much to bewilder and amaze us in our first flight. The second phase in our guest for what lay beyond IT found us wearing faint treads on the stairs of our chosen vocation. A slight suspicion arose in our minds as to what significance IT had in our climb up the four flights of our high school career, but not until we had struggled — (yes, struggled, although some would have made it a fanciful, easy climb by escalator!) to the third landing did we get our first real glimpse of IT. Here, our minds and hearts set en an immediate goal, we ventured to place a foot on the first step of the circular stairs. An indescribable feeling swept over us; we were confident, assured — but still awed and a bit baffled by the thought of what lay ahead. The fourth and final period in our search was climaxed when, having attained the magical heights of SENIOR, we found we had reached the top of the winding stairs. No longer were they curious, for now we could pierce the veil of mystery. Behind us, each step in the stairs marked a triumph. Before us . . . the world and Lifel D.N.D. -MISS KELIENBACH -MISS BRADY • MK. WILLIAMS o c R At the top of the last flight of our stairs stands Flight Commander Robert Timmons, who succeeded Allen Smith, now associate commander in 217. William Kniptash, serving the first semester, and Jack Hoyt, the second, shared leadership of 135 during our final climb. Secretaries Betty Shortridge and Doris Krome were delegated to record the climb, and James Noble and Edward Dersch were placed in charge of class funds. To assist these leaders, the Senior Council, comprised of two girls and two boys from each senior roll room, was elected. Geraldine Binkley, Donnie Douglas, Carl Eggert, Leo Elliott, Betty Jean Lamb, Walter Rafert, Glenn Smith, and Dorothy Speicher fill these positions. 1 ill i V Helen Abbott Flora Achgill Esther Albertson Maurice Alexander Dale Allanson Mildred Angelopolos Robert Arbuckle Mabel Arnold Bernard Baker Lyman Baker Mildred Ball Lee Roy Ballard Dorothy Bannon Robert Bauer James Bauerle Wilbert Baumann Virginia Beaning Harry Beeman Berniece Berger Sadelle Bergman David Bernhardt Elizabeth Berry Betty Biehl Elva Billhymer Broner Boatman Betty Boesche Herbert Bogard Gillespie Bolin Thelma Book Robert Bonke Christine Borgmann William Bottin Crystal Boyer Erlka Braf Elva Breeden Annabelle Breithaupt Maurice Brink Harold Broadstreet Lindabelle Brockett Lloyd Brooks Lucille Brooks Dione Brubeck Alfred Brunnemer Virginia Buckler Jack Bunes Josephine Burch Leona Burkhart Wayman Byers Thelma Byrum Anna Calderon Isaac Calderon Victoria Calderon Sally Camhi Walter Campbel Robert Cannon Harvey Cantor Ralph Caplin Robert Carman Mary Alice Carnine Raymond Carr Allen Cauble Gertrude Clark Morris Coffman Mary Colen Leatrice Collins Janet Conard Lucy Covert Betty Cox Betty Lou Coyl e Fern Cromwell Robert Cross Leroy Daffron r n f S 1 Lewis Dailey Anna Dalesio Frank Danzig Robert Davis Thomas Davis Paul Davison Mary DeBilt Robert DeBruler Juanita Deckard Harold Decker Carl DeFelice Lillian Dickey Anna Donenfeld Carl Dostin Dorothy Duff Albert Dunn Robert Durham Charles Edmonds Q BBBBB vAmmmmm V7iypflnM777fA7ri j .

Kemp With The Ivy We Climb By JOHN RAIKOS A WAY BACK IN 1936 A. D., came a • • draft in which all elementary school graduates were recruited to the various city schools for a four-year term enlist- ment involving the ascent of a magnifi- cent staircase to obtain an education. Our outfit, one of more than 300 strong, was stationed at the Emmerich Manual Training Base with orders to begin studying immediately. As freshmen we found ourselves at the bottom of the stairs — almost afraid, but under the guidance of our trusty commander, Mr. McComb, and his aides-de-camp, we soon became accli- mated to the surroundings and began the upward trend. Every six weeks we received a bulletin and a rating card terminated in Top Ten honors as a criterion of progress. As the year came to a close, we were thrilled to know that we had conquered our first flight even though we didn ' t find the elevator for which we had unwittingly purchased a season pass. After a brief pause on the first land- ing, the following autumn found us full of vim and vitality, ready and eager to begin another year of climb- ing. Proclamation of a mobilization pro- gram assigned us to different quarters, where with a sense of humor we soon developed our new acquaintances into " associates of the class, " and as full- fledged sophomores, we could enjoy the better things of institutional training. Prominent among the year ' s festivi- ties, the Showboat provided those with talent a chance to perform on their stairs of music — while the athletically- minded took honors on Field Day to continue on the stairs of education. Above the half-way mark on the artistic staircase, we were soon " seniors of the class " and ready to ascend the last flight. Coming back in the fall from a furlough of three months, we reorganized into two stationary com- mands — Divisions 135 and 217, with Allen Smith as Division Leader, and William Kniptash, Robert Timmons, Jack Hoyt, Betty Shortridge, James Noble, and Edward Dersch immediate subor- dinates. Cobalt blue was selected for our division color and " Build for Char- acter, Not for Fame " became our motto. The planting of the celebrated ivy was perpetuated and the dance held in the boys ' gymnasium. The emblems of our class, the arm band and banner, were designed by Dorothy Speicher and May Jones, respectively, while Mary Rose Hidinger authored the class poem, song, and Ivy Day skit. Our class plays, " Three-Cornered Moon " and " Young April, " depicted a wide assortment of characters, excel- lently portrayed; our basketball team, displaying brilliant showmanship, scaled the stairs in the city tourney to annex the city championship for t he second consecutive year, while our cross country team went upstate to capture the state title and bring home the trophy from Fort Wayne. With only a short climb to the final landing, we delegated Robert Timmons as leader and Allen Smith, Jack Hoyt, Betty Shortridge, Doris Krome, Edward Dersch, and James Noble as members of his staff to take us to the top. Walter Rafert, will maker; Mary Rose Hidinger, prophet; Mary Jo Schwab, giftorian; and John Raikos, historian, were named to positions on the Class Day program for May 24. Our four-year term is finished. We have climbed those stairs of golden opportunity. Now, as we await com- mencement, we can look ahead to the greatest reward — the distinction of be- coming a Manual alumnus. Climb On! The ivy climbs along the wall and Memories it brings Of days we spent at Manual, the V inters and the springs, Its never failing vigil and its Never ending climb Bespeak that we shouLd keep on Watching, striving all the time. No matter what the weather — it Can rain or snow or shine, But the ivy goes on climbing in Its glorious green, so fine. Its goal is viewed and it shall Gain its hold up in the sky So may we fix our goal and Gain a foothold by and by. — Mary Rose Hidinger. THREE- ATTEMPTING to hitch their wagon to - - a " star, " the June ' 40 class was reaching for the moon — which surpris- ingly turned out to be a " Three Cor- nered Moon " inhabited by the mad- cap Rimplegar family. And so they decided to let their friends have a glimpse of what happens when happy- go-lucky people have the " pins knocked from under them " by the collapse of the family fortune. This sad state of affairs and the solution was recorded by " Moon " light the afternoon of No- vember 16 and evening of November 18. When Rita Fahy as Mrs. Rimplegar, the vague, flighty, slightly rattle- brained mother in the three-act comedy by Gertrude Tonkonogy, announces that family funds are " nil, " the spoiled, idle family is completely lost. Then Carl Hardin, cast as the handsome and dignified Dr. Alan Stevens, assumes a sort of mild dictatorship and saves the day by inducing the Rimplegars to go to work. Having been brought to her senses by working for a living, Elizabeth, an extremely undignified girl of 23, played by Mary Rose Hidinger, becomes dis- satisfied with Donald, who is Donald Wallis, a young man completely lost in his dreams and lacking any sense of responsibility. By a series of humorous, sad, and thrilling events, the Rimplegars learn to adopt more realistic standards of living, although they can ' t quite give up their peculiar humor and innate flippancy. Harold Miller as Kenneth Rimplegar, a sensible young man of 25; Frank Hor- naday as 18-year-old Ed Rimplegar; Kenneth Kritsch as Douglas Rimplegar; Thelma Byrum, Kitty, the Brooklyn beauty; and Joan Werner, Jenny, the husky Czech maid — all were a credit to their roles. Director E. Edward Green was as- sisted by Mrs. Vivian L. Siener, Lillian Lyster, student director, and Francis Jeffries, student stage manager. Mar- cella Smith and Irma Schneider served as prompters. Mr. Lewis Finch, Robert Kappus, Carl Nickoloff, Maurice Coff- man, Frank Danzig, Lee Roy Ballard, John Kelsey, Gillespie Bolin, Robert Ward, Earnest Emery, James Morrow, Lawrence Muesing, and Charles Marlett were responsible for the stage setting and scenery. Properties were provided by Berniece Berger, Lindabelle Brockett, Annabelle Breithaupt, Katherine Strols, Shannon O ' Mara, Mary Jane Mennel, Phillip Vudis. Doris Krome, Wilma Jean Hogan, Betty Jean Henderson, Elda Belle Ott, Flora Achgill, Doris Linville, and Ger- trude and Irene Pasch comprised the costume committee. Publicity was di- rected by Evelyn Skillman, aided by Mary Harbison, Walter Rafert, Pete Holevas, Paul Davison, Doris Coffey, and Betty Shortridge. Posters were made by Bob Turpin, Phyllis Juday, Dorothy Speicher, May Jones, Virginia Lee Beaning, and Char- lotte Smith, and advertising was han- dled by Miss Helen Haynes ' Salesman- ship II class. Janet Conard, Rocky Meo, Mildred Angelopolos, and J. D. Small were in charge of make-up. Miss Lena Brady was house chairman and ushers and assistants were mem- bers of the 1940 class. Erika Braf, Betty Henderson, Mary Spalding, Lillian Lys- ter, and J. D. Small comprised the play selection committee. CORNERED MOON bjy. hnn. Smith. xWqU CLIMBING " Stairways to the Stars, " an all-star cast put a temporary halt to moon-gazing and turned to pages 25, 26, and 27 in the almanac to the predictions for " Young April. ' Chosen and presented as a class project of the newly formed senior dramatics class from which two casts were selected, the play was directed by Mr. E. Edward Green. Best players from Thursday ' s and Friday ' s matinee casts comprised the cast for Saturday evening. The mooning was destined to forge its way to the front, however, for the spring senior play, a sequel to " Growing Pains, " by Aurania and William Rou- verol, was a three-act comedy romance concerning the crests and pitfalls in the adolescent love lives of George and Terry Mclntyre and the consequent bewilderment of Mrs. Mclntyre and the Professor. Vivacious, impulsive, 17-year-old Terry, who fell ardently in love with each of several successive beaux and experienced difficulty in choosing, was well portrayed by Lillian Lyster, while Mary Jo Schwab turned in a creditable performance as motherly Mrs. Mclntyre whose kindly intervention finally led Terry to the one and only. Absent-minded Professor Mclntyre, whose check book was of prime importance to collegiate son George, was excellently portrayed by Robert Turpin. Lee Roy Ballard, in the role of George, suffered disillusionment when he discovered that the sweetest girl in the world, Janet Conard as Diane Gilmore, was only human after all. Competition for Diane ' s affection was provided by Dutch and Pete, played by Garland Reeves and Don Wallis. Terry ' s admirers, Charles Marlett as Bert Parsons, self-centered man-about-town; Francis Jeffries as Stewart Miller, young gentleman tied to his mother ' s apron strings; and Kenneth Kritsch as Brian Stanley, successful young business man to whom Terry finally gave her heart, filled their parts well. The charming but scheming widow Mrs. Miller, who found it convenient to enjoy poor health when she could not have her own way, was well portrayed by Rita Fahy. Supporting cast was comprised of Helen Flinn as Jane; Mary Rose Hidmger, Vivian; Betty Jean Hen- derson, Elsie; Mildred Angelopolos, Mildred; Anita Smith, Lula, the colored maid; and John Stirling, Robert Carman, James Noble, Wallace Zink, Carl DeFelice, Robert Timmons, Robert Linson, and Bill Kniptash, friends of George. Ballard, Kritsch, Jeffries, Marlett, Reeves, Wallis, Doris Linville, Rita Fahy, Janet Conard, Helen Flinn, Lons Lawrence, Dons Larrison, Betty Henderson, Betty Boesche, Robert Holbert, and Mary Jo Schwab were members of Thursday ' s cast. Friday ' s cast included Lillian Lyster, Allen Smith, Helen Flinn, Broner Boatman, Mildred Angelopolos, Charlotte Smith, Mary Rose Hidinger, Shirley Fisher, Louise White, Anita Smith, Ethel Taylor, Ballard, Turpin, Marlett, Reeves, and Wallis. However, the thespians were hard pressed for acting laurels by the all-boy cast which presented an excerpt from the play as an advertising stunt. Robert Carman, John Stirling, Harry Beeman, and Omar Sutt offered the hilarious histrionics. Successful presentations of the class play were made possible through the cooperation of Don Wallis, student director; Marcella Smith, production manager; and Irene and Gertrude Pasch, prompters. Numerous members of the senior class assisted as committee members, ushers, and ticket takers. W - ctfl f flp ' fy ' § L u. u MAY DAY ' l-ijf ' SHOWBOAT One big happy family . . .
