a. The Senior Booster Published by the Class of 1943 Emmerich Manual Training High School Indianapolis, Indiana ( yyd!- 7 Dear Bill, There are weeks and weeks — Peanut Week, Book Week, Music Week, Drink Milk Week, too — and so, although President Roosevelt has not declared it officially, I think there should be a " Write a Letter a Day " Week. Are you for it, Private? Swell! Just think, Bill, I ' m graduating after four years at Manual. Is it a grand and glorious feeling? I ' ll tell the Allied world it is — in a way. Funny how in these last days before grad- uation I keep walking through the halls, wanting to remember al- ways the low chiming of the old hall clock, the huge copy of Gainsborough ' s " Blue Boy, " the lunchroom when the sun is stream- ing in, yes, even the tune-up discords from the band room. I ' ll bet some of these were your favorites, too, when you graduated and enlisted in the air corps. Check? Speaking of the air " them gremlins " yet? I mean tangled with you? We found EMTHS. They are the Manimps chievous Manimps get into ev schedule, when the fountains away, when cafeteria dishes on the Manimps. The " hookey- little " cutter " has us all i couple on the senior panels corps, have you had any trouble with , have those naughty little fairies our own special type of gremlins at (accent on " imp " ). Really those mis- erything. When the bells ring off squirt too far, when the soap slips fall down and go " boom, " we blame it pixie " is the one to avoid. That n " dutch. " I ' ll have Eulamae draw a Maybe you know some. Say, Bill, do you recall how everyone quoted Confucius as a fad? Now, it ' s Red Skelton, but I still think the Chinese gentleman was a wise old man when he said, " One picture is worth a thousand words. " How did he know then that I was planning to mail to you lots of snapshots that my cousin Eddie and I have been taking around school all year? The " Skipper " approves my idea of sending you illustrated letters, and not only does Mr. McComb offer moral and morale support, but he and Mr. Sanders and Mr. Barnhart rounded up and contributed with their best regards a set of photographs of all the faculty, the office force, social service bureau and the cus- todians. Nice . . . and here ' tis on the next pages. You ' ll notice, as in the song, that there have been dome changes made since your school days in ' 42. As they stand now — Miss Menka Guleff ' 38, joined the English department, teach- ing speech in place of Mr. E. Edward Green, who is now Sgt. Everett E. Green, 35364229. Miss Martha Kincaid has the Spanish section in hand. ;Comprende usted Espanol? In the home eco- nomics domain are Miss Catherine Cooley and Miss Ida May Good. She signs herself as I. M. Good and will become a WAAC in June. Miss Wilhelmina Schaufler is on the commercial staff, replacing Mr. John Piper, who left in March for a secretarial position at the Y.M.C.A. Miss Roberta Trent — you should hear her play the violin ! ooh — and Mr. Mallory Bransf ord are new people in the music shot. Mr. Louis F uchs has joined the shop teaching force, and you ' ll notice in the same scene that Mr. Harold Winslow transferred from music to manual training. Still another change, Mr. Paul Collins left the mathematics division to appear with the scientists. Recognize Helen school bookkeeper? Miss at Manual last year, is class has charge of the rapher, and Miss Louise is registrar. Bonnie Le the art department. In dentally, is having a ti Manimp and rising juveni Joanna Cushwa substitute and Wilmajean Austin is Mennel, who graduated with you, as the Violet Throm, who did practice teaching attendance clerk. Margie Grider of my salesroom; Alice Clay is clerk-stenog- Mertz, who is the school nurse ' s niece, x, by the way, is the new assistant in the social service bureau, which, inci- me with victims of the " hookey-pixie " le delinquency because of the war, Mrs. d for Mrs. Ruth Greenberg this spring, also in the office. And, Bill, do you remember " Dick " who used to be janitor on the first floor? Mr. Holloway died this spring. Everybody misses him. I could go on and on, but I ' d better save some, hmmm? Eat all your G. I. spinach, and G. I. wish you ' d write me soon.

How do you like the display I ' ve pasted up for you? It ' s the Class of ' 43 — all 291 of us. We wuz l ' il juniors when you wuz here. Now look at us! Our first semester ' s officers were Alan " Bud " Wake- land, president; Bill (in the Navy) Lonigan and Wallace Watkins, vice presidents; Geraldine Tabor and Shirley Link, secretaries, and Jo Ann Ruddle and Thomas Heininger, keepers of the dues. In spring Bill Allanson was elected prexy. Al Buescher and Ed Ratcliffe became his right hand men, and Shirley, Geraldine, Jo Ann and Heininger were re-elected to their posts. Besides the officers, council members are Helen Snyder, Fred Faires, Fred Solomon, Charlene Stanton, Jimmy Smith, Fred Dufek, Rosalind Hoffman and Marjorie Downer. Miss Lena Brady is our senior sponsor; she heads the council, too. Mr. Ross Williams (he was your roll room teacher, n ' est-ce pas?) is the boss in 135, and Mr. Otto Kuehrmann rules in 217. Other people on the page, Bill, are Bernice Cohen, she ' s Senior Booster editor; Eulamae Hardesty, who ' s art editor, and Elsa Hubert, business manager for the annual. Mary Cory and Al Tavenor were prophet and will maker, respectively, and Bernice was his- torian on the Class Day program. Of course, we all dressed up for Ivy Day in December and wore our blue ribbons and the arm bands designed by Gerald Pate. Wilma Schwicho read her poem, and Gerry Tabor produced a class song. The banner, made by Allen Shupinsky, had the motto, " Semper Fidelis, " on it. From the Marines, you know. Mind too much, Soldier? Class Day was fun, too. We met in the audi- torium for the program planned by Elsa Hubert and really " cut a rug " afterwards at the dance. About the other things we ' ve been doing here in Tepee Town, I ' ll let the snapshots speak for themselves. We ' re marching down the aisle at Cadle Taber- nacle June 7 — and I in my Alice Blue Gown. Wish you could be here !

Posing here for the literary side under Editor Bernice Cohen, Al Tavenor, sports editor; Rosalind Hoffman, club editor; Mary Cory, photography chief; her aide, Libby Kipp, and Patricia Chapman and Al Buescher helped produce the yearbook under Miss Gretchen Kemp. Jimmy Smith and Bob Walker, along with Mr. Carl Hanske and Mr. Lewis Finch, were the camera fiends who " shot " scenes. Eulamae Hardesty, who, incidentally, did all of the draw- ings, had an art staff of juniors, coached by Miss Betty Foster. Betty McDonel, Barbara Schmedel, Rachel Browning, Don Evans, Louis Popcheff, Charles Heck and Juana Grifford, freshman, worked with her. In charge of the financial end, Elsa Hubert, business manager, was assisted by Jean Cubel, Elaine Timmons, Mary Waldo, Gertrude Hoffmann and Helen Snyder. Miss Helen Haynes was their adviser. Bye now — fisdh. Editorial If I take the Wings the Morning, and dw G Dear Bill, Although to do it justice, John Mason Brown and Walter Winchell should review our senior class play, " Wings of the Morning, " they have neither the time nor the pictures, and I have. For weeks the senior dramatists mumbled in their lunch- room macaroni and cheese in a frenzy of forgetting their lines. Everyone came to recognize the yellow playbooks that each carried as marks of distinction — and work. Work they did, and on the night of Saturday, May 1, they put forth a three-act comedy drama. More drama than comedy, Bill, for W.O.T.M. was a deep play about how Master Geoffrey — that was Milton Bohard, a scien- tist, philosopher and philanthropist, took upon himself the task of unraveling the lives of the main characters. Everyone had a problem. Joyce Calvert, a young dress designer who was disillusioned and bewildered in love, played by Rosalind Hoffman, and Benedetta, lovely ambitious Benedetta, an Italian girl, taken by Esther Cohen, were feminine leads. Joyce couldn ' t decide between Adrian Powell, Ed Levinsky in the role of a poet, and Herman Hurwitz ' s character, Dr. David Banning. All were flown by Stanley, an aviator, Gilbert Cohen, to Master Geoffrey ' s home in a mine shaft. Edgar Hamer, as Eben, the philosopher ' s trusted friend and messenger, also called Mrs. Ellis from an old ladies ' home. Betty Hawkins was frail Mrs. Ellis, and Roberta Read, Trudy, a teen-ager who enters with her. Then came real comedy when Benedetta ' s parents, Tonio and Carlotta, Meyer Solotkin and Libby Kipp, began to wrangle. OH! Those accents! Also, the role of Ellen had Marian Reidweg as Master Geoffrey ' s sister in his weird home. Loa, Joyce ' s maid, Jean Cubel ; Effie, the student nurse who was constantly on the phone, Mary Cory, and Miss Wanley, superintendent at the aged ladies ' home, Mollie Bernstein, were good, too. Well — the master mind succeeded in getting his subjects to think and react satisfactorily. Joyce found that she preferred the young doctor; Benedetta secured Adrian, and the audience ap- plauded the senior class play of 1943, " Wings of the Morning. " Miss Guleff, she ' s the new teacher, you know, who used to go to Manual, is senior dramatics instructor, and she directed the play with help from Mrs. Vivian Siener and Betty Hawkins, student director. The music added to the moods . . . ummmm. Please note that the scenery received the very special talents of the stage hands. They created watermelon pink walls with a Hershey brown trim . . . yum. Even the cast took a day off to dabble as painters and carpenters. Note to Messrs. Brown and Winchell: So there! Affectionately, fifiiL 22 Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! He Dood It ! Dear Bill, Eddie had only to meet me in the hall today and shout, " What ' s buzzin ' , Cousin? " to bring forth this super galaxy of juniors, sophomores and freshmen. The three-year people are really on the beam in activi- ties. All the undergraduates are, in fact. With so many seniors on part-time jobs, some attending spring semester college and more than twenty boys already in uniform, they are really taking over. Room 216 won a plaque for buying the most war stamps last semester. On Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, Manual sold $1,086 in " slaps at the axis. " Last semester totals reached $6,553.25, and we ' re out to top that. Does that sound like home front backing for you all? A new Victory Corps to enroll high school students and prepare them for better service to their country has us much excited. Roll Rooms 102, the freshies, and 109, for senior high, received Corps plaques for 100 per cent enlistment. One of the most successful feats was the volunteering of Manual girls to fill more than two hundred posts in neighborhood shows. They collected money for the Red Cross. You see, Mr. Barnhart is Victory Corps direc- tor for all city high schools. Physical education is on the " must " list for membership, and oh, my " muskles ! " No more " merry-go-round " parade before school. Remember how we used to come at 7:30 and just walk and walk round and round? Well, not any more, we can ' t! The doors are bolted until 8:30, and this winter if you were an early bird, you just shivered in silence outside. It didn ' t take us long to catch on that we ' d have to arrange to come later in the morning to leave room for defense workers on the buses. The pictures to come will show you that the classes of ' 44, ' 45 and ' 46 shine in loyalty, art, math, R.O.T.C. and in ticket buying, too. The Booster, which placed first among Indiana high school papers, enrollment under 2,000, at Butler University, has a crop of would-be reporters, and the service file that they keep in there of all boys from Manual now in uniform is really somepin ! They sent out more than six hundred greetings this Christmas, and the whole school and faculty pitched in and con- tributed articles about the home town to mail with the seven hun- dred Easter letters dispatched in April. Chit Chat: You should have seen the model airplanes the shops turned out on a government order ... a sign of the times. Also the students like the new photography course that Mr. Finch teaches. 302 is equipped as a studio plus a dark room for devel- oping, and some of the work looks professional. My cousin Eddie has lots of sports shots, but I ' ll save those. O.K.? O.K. The kids here say " hello, " and I must say . . . Bye now, P.S. — I ' m glad you liked the cookies! Bsdh. 25 %4 Double Feature Old GtoryOer Manual fetching Shoot Suits Not A Chance Lil Crowded, Bub ? The Champ G.L.M. Officers The Dude 210-They Bought ' Em Ife, What ' s The Use? Just Waitin Frosh Talk What ' s Cookin ' ? The Winner Dear Bill, " Potpourri — that ' s what the next pages are. In my school book French that means " a mixture of all good things " or — just plain miscellaneous. Yes, that is Governor Henry Schricker flanked by representa- tives of the Victory Corps. The governor ' s visit and inspiring talk to the school March 10 really was " the event of the year " here. He told us to make every minute count this summer toward winning the war. 1 met him personally, Bill, and, gee, he ' s so human and nice! You ' d never recognize the third floor bridge, for with lots of elbow grease, red, white and blue oil cloth and willing helpers, Miss Helen Irwin, head of the Victory Corps Community Division, has transformed it into a Bridge to Victory. Miss Dorothy Ellis and Miss Betty Foster helped with the decoration. You see, it ' s a perma- nent salvage station for scrap metal, lipsticks and compacts, games, books and magazines for the U.S.O., ash trays, scrap rubber, old nylon and silk hose, records — and lots more. Most school clubs are sponsor- ing special drives. I ' ve pasted pictures of the clubs for you, thanks to Eddie ' s camera; I ' ll glue Booster clippings along the sides. See, the girls have taken over the shops for classes in machine tool work. You should see them gloat over their products and wail over begrimed hands. They are also answering the call for map makers by taking a special course here. Mathematics, you know — 2 plus 2 equals 5, is more and more important. We had a program explaining it in relation to aviation. I ' m sorry that we don ' t have any pictures of the Victory garden projects that Mr. Harold Boese is promoting; however, the students are reaping their peas, beans and onions from back yard plots. That night school picture (Mr. Hanske is director) shows that some seniors, who now work during the day, are finishing their credits in the evening. The Christmas wreath is a reminder of the colorful program given by students before vacation. The Girls League show this year was held on March 26 instead of a fall date, and it brought raves. The freshies proved that big things do come in small packages. We were freshies once, remember? Dancing, acrobatic, tap and toe, was super! Betty and Bill Allanson and Paul Brandes looked like professionals with their tumbling stunts. I liked the doll shop scene especially. It was patterned after one of Judy Garland ' s songs in " For Me and My Gal. " And the solos, and the songs, and the jokes and the costumes! Well, everybody just burst their Victory seams with pride. Me, too. Affectionately, Bsdk, 29 Calling Station ERT.H.S Map Maker Rosie The Riveter ti rn r Over The Top Victory Corps Red Cross To The Rescue Mathematics Flies High Our Doll Shoppe " We Three King3 r MUSIC Orchestra — With a new conductor, Miss Roberta Trent, tapping out the " commence " signal, the Manual orchestra repeats its ac- tive role by supplying music for special auditoriums and school plays. A concert for the State Parent-Teachers Association in April was high point in outside appearances this year. Orches- tra members, who prefer the classics to " boogie, " also en- joyed Dr. Fabien Sevitsky ' s spring visit with the Indianap- olis Symphony Orchestra in a " pop " concert here. James Waltz Concert Master ' A " BAND — At ease with drills and fancy formations, as well as their martial downbeats, the top band, under Mr. Charles Hen- zie, performs at games and pep sessions. They played at Scottish Rite Cathedral this year and par- ticipated in Memorial Day Serv- ices at Garfield Park. The organi- zation also entertained Hoosier royalty, Governor Henry Schrick- er, who addressed students on the Victory Corps March 1 0. Edward Lipp Drum Major ' B " BAND — The " B " might stand for beginners who aspire to an " A " berth soon — with practice. Mr. Charles Henzie acts as lead- er and teacher while they are mastering band technique. De- spite war-time demands on time, enthusiasm for Sousa ' s marches marches on in " B " Band. Mean- while they continue to display their talents for the " guinea pig " freshman assemblies. Dance Band — The Hit Parade every Saturday night is " old stuff " to these swingsters, because they immediately recognize all the coming popular tunes and have them on tap for senior mixers and all-school dances. Their specialties? " Mr. Five by Five " and " Ten Little Soldiers " set toes to tapping in Roll Room 135 during an impromptu pro- gram. Mr. Charles Henzie di- rects the 1 1 -piece band in ac- tion. 32 Girls Glee Club- — The girls in red and white, directed by Miss Freda Hart, appear throughout the city, often on repeat per- formances, and this spring the Indianapolis Philharmonic Or- chestra, conducted by Alumnus Herman Rinne, presented a con- cert here gratis to raise an of- fering for new singing outfits. Elsa Hubert President Mary Wall Vice President Barbara Schmedel Attendance Secretary Geraldine Tabor Recording Secretary Earbara Arnold Treasurer Boys Glee Club — Barber shop quintets are out, but these sing- ers enjoy vocalizing for students in school assemblies. These boys receive their pitch from Mrs. Edith Ross Binkley. Ralph Schludecker President Robert Kirkman Secretary Choir — Good Friday this year for the first time was observed by a school program presented by the orchestra, the Boys Glee Club and the Choir, now under Mrs. Binkley, which produced a strik- ing part of the performance. Roy Miller President Peggy Spencer Vice President Hildegard Bickel Recording Secretary Gilbert Cohen Assistant Secretary Victor DeFelice Treasurer Music Club — Musicians entertain- ing musicians — that ' s the order of the day when these artists gather. With Miss Hart as sponsor, they sing, play and practice on each other. Robert Schilling President Don Miller Vice President James Waltz Attendance Secretary Wilma Rooker Recording Secretary Elsa Hubert Treasurer 33 CLUBS Masoma — Important cogs in the EAATHS machinery are the honor girls in school who collect cards, act as library assistants and are office messengers. Because necessary part-time jobs have curtailed much of the girls ' time, those who carry on under double burdens rate a cheer. Elsa Hubert President Jeanne Mathias Vice President Mary Lee Secretary-Treasurer Mrs. Ruth H. Shull Miss Helen Tipton Co-sponsors R o i n e s — Not many know that Roines is " senior " spelled back- wards. Besides feeding and cheering the athletic teams at annual luncheons, they sponsor a track meet, entangle with and lose to the faculty in basketball (54-37) and aid in collection of tin boxes and ash trays for men in service. APbert Buescher President Warren Sherman Vice President Milton Bohard Secretary Albert Tavenor Treasurer Miss Arda Knox Miss Bertha Ebbert Co-sponsors Student Council — When there aren ' t any marines to whom Manualites can tell their prob- lems, the roll room representa- tives always cock their ears for suggestions. Each has charge of salvage collections in his room, and as a body they sponsored the selection of cheer leaders. Robert Walker President Warren Sherman Vice President Virgil Cronley Secretary Charles Carmen President Dorothy Ewbank Vice President Hildegard Bickel Secretary Miss Gretchen Kemp Miss Bertha Ebbert Co-sponsors 3-4 CLUBS Commissioned Officer s — These boys are A- 1 in the Reserve Officers Training Corps, and when they are 1 -A with local draft boards, they ' ll have military training that will be respected. They meet before school on Tuesdays to plan class procedure and drills for the privates, and woe to the officer who marches in late. All fines go to the party and picnic fund. Jimmy Smith Cadet Major Albert Tavenor Treasurer Sgt. Fred Hutson Cpl. H. Frank Nieman Instructors Junior Red Cross — One of the most active organizations in Manual, the Junior Red Cross donated the 31 flags of different nations; they packed holiday baskets for needy families; pencil stubs and broomsticks were their tasks in the salvage campaign; skating party proceeds went to National Children ' s Fund, and favors, books and gifts boxes were given to men at Billings Hospital, Fort Harrison. A picture scrap book of all school activities from year to year and help with the Booster service file are other contribu- tions. Athena Holevas President Libby Kipp Vice President Helen Carter Secretary Ruth Fritsche Treasurer Mrs. Coral Black Sponsor Non Commissioned Officers — Here are the future officers who will finally take over the garrison caps and shining sabers as well as important duties in training ROTC recruits. The " non corns " are familiarizing themselves with military procedure. Virgil Cronley President Paul Eckhart Vice President Thomas Chiplis Secretary -Treasurer Sgt. Fred Hutson Cpl. H. Frank Nieman Co-sponsors 35 CLUBS Senior Red — Graduation problems, date etiquette and good manners are club matter for these girls. They also aid in the Victory Parade with small scrap, tin foil and records, which are replaced with new ones for USO clubs. Quizzes and such answer their personal and social problems. Patricia Chapman President Doris Felske Vice President Marjorie Benefiel Attendance Secretary Ha Mae Davidson Recording Secretary Helen Snyder Treasurer Miss Dorothy Ellis Sponsor Forum — When they aren ' t deciding political, domestic and interna- tional affairs or discussing possi- bilities pro and con for a fourth term, members of the Forum Club help with war stamp sales and the stamp chart. They have donated to the Red Cross. Warren Sherman President Marjorie Loy Vice President LeRoy Glidden Attendance Secretary Doris Prather Recording Secretary Miss Rosana Hunter Sponsor Senior White — The boys in this group give the girls good argu- ments when members pitch into a Boys vs. Girls debate on dates, social faux pas and eating peas with a knife. Like the sister club, Senior Red, they sponsor collections for records, tin foil and small scrap for the Bridge to Victory on the third floor. Bernard Mcintosh President Paul McManis Vice President Georgeanna Holl Attendance Secretary Shirley Link Recording Secretary Robert Jacobs Treasurer Miss Dorothy Ellis Sponsor 36 CLUBS Hi-Tri of Girl Reserves. — Although they meet after school, these girls have calendars filled with gatherings at the Young Women ' s Christian Association, May morning breakfasts, a spring worship service and a city-wide skating party. This is the group that collected and sent more than one hundred pounds of old silk and nylon hose to be recon- ditioned into parachutes. The Girl Reserves is a national organ- ization. Marilyn Chapman President Margaret Burks Vice President Jo Ann Huntsman Secretary Mary Graves Treasurer Miss Dorothy Forsyth Sponsor Block M — To become a member of this group, which furthers ath- letics at EMTHS, a boy must have earned his letter through participation in sports. The let- termen, among other things, sponsor ice cream sales at foot- ball games. Proceeds bought colorful sweaters for basketball cheer leaders. Mr. Harry Thomas Sponsor Hi-Y — Admirals, generals, lieuten- ants, shave-tails and other serv- ice designations are familiar to these boys who have studied in- signia of the United States armed forces. Affiliated with the Y.M.C.A., they enjoy " Y " privi- leges. One of the discussion topics this year was on summer jobs. Underclassmen as well as seniors belong. Warren Bogard President William Smiley Vice President David Shaw Secretary Paul Acton Treasurer Mr. Volney Ward Sponsor 37 CLUBS Latin Club — Certainly not " Latins from Manhattan, " these lan- guage students conjugate their verbs in class but view films — they have a library of films — sponsor the annual Saturnalia, decorate colorful ti les for display and have party-picnics in the lunchroom as club projects. Their sponsor presented each senior with a bronze pin. Donald Miller President Nelda Carver Vice President Norma Hupke Attendance Secretary Geraldine Tabor Recording Secretary Bonnie McKee Treasurer Miss Elizabeth L. Davis Sponsor French Club — That the beauty and lilting rhythm of the French language will always remain " free French " is the interest of these former language students. April Fish Day ceremonies, dram- atizations of short plays and the reading of French newspapers occupy their time. The tradi- tional Christmas sketch was re- enacted this year, replete with the dime baked into the cake. Bernice Cohen President Gladys Cohen Secretary -Treasurer Mrs. Ruth H. Shull Sponsor S p a n i s h — The " good neighbor " policy is the chief concern of these " gringos. " Singing the songs with real Spanish accents adds to the fun. Saturnalia, the language festival, provided the carnival atmosphere last semes- ter. A dancing party with re- freshments in the gymnasium is another attraction. William Robertson President Doris Colligan Vice President Betty Jean Petersen Secretary Robert Mann Treasurer Miss Martha Kincaid Sponsor 38 CLUBS Home Economics — The girls in the Home Economics Club are up to the minute on social eti- quette, decoration of gifts, selec- tion of centerpieces, and they send two hundred cookies often to the USO clubs. They also fill their allotted box on the Bridge to Victory with old metal compacts, lipsticks and rouge containers. Elsa Stumpf President Margaret Stoneburner Vice President Margaret Burks Attendance Secretary Peggy Spencer Recording Secretary Doris Wright Treasurer Mrs. Florence Boots Miss Catherine Cooley Co-sponsors Naturalists — Victory Gardens, nat- urally, are pupils ' pets in this group. The Naturalists take an active interest in the planting projects underway and study seeds and soils. Clifford Moran President Walter Mussmann Vice President Martha Price Attendance Secretary Betty Lou Wright Recording Secretary Harold Boltinghouse Treasurer Mr. Otto Kuehrmann Sponsor Photography — Considered as a war club, the photography group re- ceives practice in making its own developer and mixing chemicals in the chemistry room. For fun, as well as education, the club meets at Garfield once in a while for a picture-taking session. Milton Garrison President Madeline Meo Vice President Marylouise White Attendance Secretary Alan Judkins Recording Secretary Margaret Smith Treasurer Mr. James Brayton Sponsor 39 CLUBS Stage Hands — Meet the men be- hind the scenes. Quick set changes require quick thinking and even more rapid action, and these boys have developed those qualities. They are behind all school productions. Lights, cur- tain, microphones — these details are handled by competent stage hands. The boys volunteer their services, and their red smocks with " stage " written across them are badges of authority behind the back-drops. Travers Browne Student Stage Manager Mr. Lewis Finch Director Mathematics — Despite the fact that they have not produced a theory to rival Mr. Einstein ' s, the math- ematicians, in the shape of an algebraic " pi, " busied themselves with an outstanding mathe- matics auditorium program this year. It was combined with im- portant facts on aviation, and when the government bureau was approached for a permit to broadcast the program, the offi- cials exclaimed at the accuracy of the statistics and vetoed broadcasting vital information. Raymond Raker President Gerald Tutterrow Vice President Veleda Betzler Secretary Raymond Schwomeyer Treasurer Miss Ada Coleman Sponsor Lunchroom Workers — Ice Cream may be hard to get and distrib- ute equally, candy lines may be a block long, but these workers have a knack for quick, efficient work in the cafeteria. They cashier, serve, work in the kit- chen and sell at counters — and play no favorites. Mrs. Helen Rosaa Lunchroom Manager Miss Elsie McLaughlin Assistant -40 CLUBS Movie — Boys in uniform need not long for picture magazines for a little while, for Movie Club members, as their Victory Corps project, collected more than four thousand volumes, " funny books " included, for USO cen- ters. Their purpose is to form good judgment and to be in- formed on motion pictures. Earl Lunday President Max Lee Vice President Opal Studebaker Attendance Secretary Victor DeFelice Recording Secretary Mary Harding Treasurer Mrs. Ada M. Bing Sponsor Odd Number — To promote the short story and encourage cre- ative writing is the aim of this club, which meets on Red and White dates. Members enjoy camaraderie and easy informality and openly criticize each other ' s efforts in an effort to improve.

Believe it or not, the days of football prosperity are coming back to Manual ! Coaches Clarence Bruness and Johnny Piper got their heads together and put out the saweetest li ' l eleven we ' ve had around here in ages. They took off where Johnny Janzaruk (he ' s at Cathedral now) left off and brought home the bacon without sparing the ration points in six of eight games. Incidentally, we placed second in the city behind Shortridge. We tried to have a post season game with the Devils, but it didn ' t work out this year. Let me assure you that we have a basketball team, too . . . a mighty fine one . . . although a little short on the record sheets. They won eight of eighteen, .444, but still out-pointed their opponents from the court. When we consider that most of the team were underclassmen, we can expect a good season next year. Now don ' t let me give you the impression that the boys are the only athletically minded individuals in EMTHS ! You should have seen the activity down in the girls ' gymnasium when I sneaked down to get the " snaps " on this page! Aren ' t they " pips? " The femmes actually " stay after school " to play badminton, volley ball, soccer, shuffleboard and lots of other things. It ' s all part of the physical fitness program inaugurated this semester. Some of Manual ' s cinder prowess graduated with Johnny and Mike Mascari last year, but this season ' s version is really the team of the future. Though the records don ' t shine so brightly this year . . . fourth in the City Meet, losses to Washington and Howe in duals . . . the boys did place fourth in the Southport Relays, and all but one of the point getters were underclassmen. I could rattle on for hours about the other locker room banter . . . Coach Piper left for the YMCA . . . parochial and colored schools competed in the City Net Tourney . . . Bill Allanson was high point man in the county for the grid season . . . but I will just let the enclosed pictures do the talking. Glad to hear you made the post ' s football squad. Keep the South Side records going round the country, I always say. Take it easy, watch the women, and Love and stuff, £dduL FOOTBALL ' 67 Paul Brandes E 2o Mike Bisesi FB 5S John Smith QB 87 Ed keller HB 34 Ed Ratcliffe E 43 Bill Allanson HB 66 Walter Hem G 3 James Fitzoerald HB 75 Ray Ball T (cZ Joe Robertson C 65 John Ahem E 77 Joe Stepanovich C 47 Everett Montoxjmery I BASKETS Freshman • ACI y Freshmen ■■■■i WMM%mmm
