" A bit of a song, fleeting, evasive, the words just beyond reach . . . Memories of bygone days, blurred and fading . . . We want to treasure up each brimful hour: we want a permanent record, clear and never-fading. To this end we dedi- cate our yearbook. H LAVE you ever sat down and looked through an old pile of records, recalling old tunes that were popular when you were a freshie or maybe still in grade school? It ' s just like wiping the dust and cobwebs from your memories — taking them out and playing them over — memories of slumber parties and auditorium programs, get-togethers at the drugstore, report cards tomorrow, basketball and football games and classes — and classes — and classes — and classes — oops! The needle got stuck! In the following pages you will find some of the memory-records that have accumulated at Manual during the last year — ready for you to play over. As we open the cover of the first record album, we find the record on top is " Hail to the Chief, " and slipping out of the jacket along with the disc is a picture of our own chief, Principal E. H. Kemper McComb. On the other side are similar poses of Messrs. Bertram Sanders and W. S. Barnhart, two jolly good fellows. It isn ' t hard to guess what the song on the back dedicated to these two is — " For He ' s a Jolly Good Fellow. " O ince last Senior Booster " There ' ve been some changes made " in the teaching staff. Uncle Sam tapped so persuasively on three shoulders that we lost Miss Ida Mae Good to the WAC, Mr. Charles G. Yeager to the Navy and Miss Helen Irwin to the International Red Cross recreation service. Misses Lena Brady and Bertha Ebbert retired and Miss Catherine Cooley, Mrs. Hazel Dorman and Mr. Russell H. Clunie are also among the missing. Miss Wilhelmina Schaufler, substituting in the commercial department; Miss Margaret Paul, who used to be in the library, and Miss Bonnie Lex, erstwhile assistant in the art department, are no longer with us. Mrs. Dorothy Kenoyer and Mr. Edward Howe are new in the home economics and shop departments, and Mr. Oran M. Davis, returned from a post with Uncle Sam, is back at his post in the art department. Miss Bertha Leming replaced Miss Mildred Harvey in the social service office. We ' re playing " Miss You " for those not in our faculty recordings this year. Robert Jviurrai (president) W, ith all the records Manualites have been mak- ing — and breaking — this year, we might compare to Tommy Dorsey or Kay Kyser, only our records have not been the wax kind. For the first time in its his- tory, our band of seniors has been divided into four parts instead of two. Leading our sections were Miss Margaret Kellenbach, Mrs. Coral T. Black and Messrs. Otto Kuehrmann and Leslie Maxwell. They ' ve done a good job of wielding the baton, too. While they were busy with roll room records, Miss Dorothy Ellis took charge of dances, Ivy and Class days, election of offi- cers and other important details. Just as in years past, we elected a student conductor, Bob Murray, for our " band, " only we called him class president. He did such a good job of conducting that we voted him right back into his job for the second semester too. In Room 109 we found Don Miller calling the meet- ing to order for the first semester and Kenneth Hoff- mann replacing him during the second half of the year. Norma Hupke took charge of the secretary ' s notebook for both semesters, and Don Wiebke and Patricia Duffey collected dues. Virgil Cronley was Senior Council rep resentative. Room 135 claimed Don Hafer and Ray Schwomeyer as vice presidents, and Ruth Johnson was secretary. Roland Scholl and Nita Overman were first semester Council members, and Nita and Louis Popcheff were chosen the second semester while Roland took over the treasurer ' s duties. William Freije was the other treasurer. Max Cohen and Edward Reifeis took charge of meetings in 211. Almarie Hoffmann was treasurer and William Lee, secretary for the first half of the year, but they switched jobs during the last semester. Patty Schutte and Ann Etherington were Council repre- sentatives. Joe Lex was vice president; Mary Fritsche, secre- tary, and Bruce Janert, treasurer, in 217. Repre- sentatives included Helen Carter, Carl Kenninger and Victor DeFelice. So on the platters above and on the next page President Bob and his assistants will contribute a medley consisting of phrases from the parliamentary law book, a plea for dues and the reading of the minutes of the last meeting, all set to music. This tune, piped by our senior leaders, is the one to which we have marched through the year, prepar- ing ourselves for the last march — that one down the aisle at Cadle Tabernacle. And with this medley we begin the parade of seniors through our yearbook.

Two of the boys are in service; two, in war plants; two of the girls are working, and the third is attending Butler University. SUMMER SCHOOL, 1943 Jay Arnett Anna Bruce Mary Daugherty Rosalie Elkin Donald Evans William Mount Edgar Stanley 22 2(1 T or the last two or three months a certain group of Manual students has been very deadline conscious. Every time they looked at the calendar, a printer ' s deadline or deadline for Senior Booster payments or an engraver ' s deadline or the photographer ' s dead- line would stare solemnly at them. But now they ' ve stopped humming " Nobody Knows the Trouble I ' ve Seen: " they ' ve packed up their trou- bles in that old kit bag, and those happy smiles you see above are on the faces of the Senior Booster staffs. Doris Colligan, editor in chief; Barbara Arnold, business manager, and Betty McDonel, art editor, directed the work of the three staffs. Betty Brickert, Bettyann Haller, Don Smith and Louise Mikels helped Barbara collect all the forty centses. They were di- rected by Miss Helen A. Haynes. Betty ' s staff of Barbara Schmedel, Charles Heck, Almarie Hoffmann, Evelyn Davis, Jack Shipp, Con- stance Kinz, Carolyn Badger, Wendell Stevens, Willa Mae Boesche and Juana Griff ard, under Miss Betty Foster, drew the shiny black records, music staffs and stick figure illustrations on every page. Molly Threlkeld, Tommy Neal, Mr. Lewis Finch and Mr. Carl Hanske took the photos for snapshot pages, and under Doris on the literary staff were Dorothy Reinacker, Virgil Cronley, Almarie, Mary Fritsche, Helen Carter and Betty Strols. Miss Gretchen A. Kemp was adviser. 21 M .usic, besides being the theme of our 1944 year- book, played a big part in our class play, " Four Daughters, " for it was all about composers and music teachers and musicians. I ' m sure the Lane sisters and Gail Page, who played in the movie version of " Four Daughters, " would have enjoyed every minute of Fannie Hurst ' s story with our super cast, just as the audience did. Bob Murray played the role of Felix Deitz, young music student and composer who tried to teach Adam Lemp, Bill Freije, to like boogie- woogie as well as he liked Beethoven. Ann Etherington as Ann Lemp was Adam ' s youngest daughter and the violinist of the family, with whom Felix fell in love. It seemed they both liked to swing on garden gates. But when Mickey Borden, Max Cohen, fell in love with Ann, she forgot Felix. Ann ran away with the despondent, pessimistic young composer on the eve of her marriage to Felix. In fact, t he wedding guests were already assembled and had to go back home without seeing the wedding. Ann and Mickey were quite happy, but Mickey was killed in an automobile accident after a few months of marriage. Naturally Ann turned to Felix for consolation and they were eventually reunited. Barbara Turley portrayed Aunt Etta, sympathizer and adviser for both the young folks in the family and her brother, Adam. Thea Lemp, Lucille Cassel, played the piano and was ambitious to meet and marry a rich business man. Gerald Tutterrow played Ben Crowley, who became Thea ' s knight in shining armor because he owned a big car and had plenty of money to spend on her. The part of lazy Kay was done by Betty McDonel. Kay brought the family hopes and predictions for herself into reality by singing over the radio. Emma Lemp, the cellist, was heartbroken when Felix an- nounced his love for Ann. But she concealed her feelings from all except Aunt Etta and, in time, fell in love with her modest but untiring suitor, the florist, played by Richard Deer. Viola Woodard was cast as Emma. There was a little matter of singing and playing the instruments which could have stumped the perform- ers had not members of the music department come to the rescue off stage. Virginia Swaynie supplied the singing; Elsie Stefan, the piano parts; Mary Rose Benjamin played the violin, and Mary Hittle, the cello. The disappointed guests at Felix and Ann ' s wedding which didn ' t happen were Helen Carter, Virgil Cron- ley, Victor DeFelice, Mary Fritsche, Josephine Penna, Louis Popeheff, David Stackhouse and Miss Swaynie. • • VIC7 K, 0. w e ' ve all heard that old saying, " Little drops of water, little grains of sand, make a mighty ocean and a pleasant land. " During our last year we have recorded lots of little " drops and grains " of things that make pleasant memories of our alma mater. We shall recall eating at the lunchroom senior row of tables, passing the time of day with the gang before school in 217, breaking a test tube in chemistry, listening to records in music appreciation class or hunting for that book in the card catalog in the library. For the last time as students at Manual we shall have seen the sunshine scattering in geometrical bars on the floor as it gleams through the stair railings, the old clock down by the office, the rifle range, the " Picture of the Month " display. These high school memories are as jumbled as tho?e meaningless patterns and countless hues on the glass panel bottoms of our juke boxes, but added together, they make the modernistic design of our last year at Manual. We are remembering that in countries like Belgium, Holland, Norway and Poland kids like us don ' t even go to school anymore. Deep in our hearts should be the thought, thanks for America and Manual— " Thanks for the Memories. " Standing out clearly in our memories are those special occasions which made this last year different. Our first get-acquainted party was held just before first-3emester officer elections. Our senior roll room teachers led the grand march. We had a conga chain, too — a mixture of the old and new in dances! The really special occasion for that semester was Ivy Day, and we seniors contributed toys for the Day Nursery. We ' re old enough to do without our teddy bear and toy automobile anyhow. The big " doin ' s " this semester were on May 17 — Class Day. But June 12 is the night we ' re all waiting for, the night when we march down the aisle and up on the platform at Cadle Tabernacle to sing " Tis June, the month of roses — " and to receive our diplomas. Then we ' ll be full-fledged Manual alumni. 24 X hey ' re Either Too Young or Too Old, " — young enough to have to look up to the seniors, yet old enough to think they are entirely out of the sphere of freshmen and sophomores. But the third-year proteges certainly have been doing all right for themselves this year. Walter Piepenbrok, of our ROTC unit, for instance, proved himself no misfit with a rifle. He captained Man- ual ' s Hearst Trophy Team, which took second place in Indianapolis rifle competition. Other team members who helped bring home those 830 points for Manual are Paul Johnson, Robert Willoughby, Bill Schumann and Walter Mussmann. Dead-Eye Dicks — that ' s what they are ! Piano virtuoso, Bill Robertson, proved his musical merit when he " tickled the ivories " on L. S. Ayres ' Sub Deb program Nov. 20. He was sponsored by the Ki-O-Wans of Manual. Taking over school service duties under Masoma supervision, four junior girls were voted into the girls ' honorary in March. They are Mary Lou Burns, Carolyn Sanders, Pauline Sauter and La Verne Tacke. Seniors admitted at the same time are Betty Brickert, Bettyann Haller, Janice Heuser, Nita Overman and Barbara Schmedel. Schumann, Barbara Brown, Joe Mennel and Marilyn Chapman were sufficiently active to be chosen third- year candidates for the Know ' Em Poem in The Booster. That " Don ' t get around much anymore " stuff doesn ' t apply to them! So it looks as if the juniors are fast outgrowing their too young or too old reputation and are on the road to an outstanding senior class. And while we are wishing them good luck, we hope that, as the song says, they will find it easy " to stay good as gold " and keep up their good work next year. 26 J. he " in-between " sophomores — much too worldly-wise to forget about getting their silver in the lunchroom or to try absent-mindedly to give their nickels to the ice cream dipper instead of the cashier — too naive to understand just exactly what high school means, to realize how quickly time passes, how soon opportunities are gone. " Too old for toys, too young for boys. " Well, too old for toys anyway. The other works in theory only. These sophomores are beginning to grow up, to see new sides of this school, which is just beginning to be familiar to them. Maybe Joe donned his ROTC uniform for the first time this year and with this experience became aware of the importance of polished shoes, button polish, too. Jean made her first dress in clothing last semester and wore it proudly. They represent a whole class of Joes and Jeans, waiting in the telephone line in the office to warn their mothers they ' ll be home late — or maybe early for once — taking home their copies of " Merchant of Venice, " which must be read for English — carrying their geometry books. On the whole it ' s a good class. Although we couldn ' t begin to name everyone who is deserving, it claims people like Rosemary Englert, who has danced her way into popularity, like Juana Griff ard, winner of a treasury certificate for art work, like Albert Chernin, Betty Delks, Jean Maschmeyer and Albert Levy, who appeared in The Booster ' s sophomore Know ' Em Poems. Tenth-grade boys like Ardwood Courtney, John Pittman, William Donahue, Ted Critchfield and Jack Green received Frenzel medals for physical achievement, cooperation, good behavior, leadership. Yes, it is a nice class — a class with opportunity, with capacity for hard work, with faith in the future and themselves. These " in-betweens " will succeed in the tasks thev set to do. 28 X hey don ' t " hang around the pool room " when they " should be in the school room, " but " Small Fry " is still an appropriate dedication to our freshmen. More than one bewildered freshie ending up in the girls ' instead of the boys ' locker room has bewailed his fate as a victim of those " helpful " people who advised him which stairway to take. Older students tease them ' bout their size — small fry — but the freshies this year took advantage of what might have been a handicap and formed two dwarf basketball teams. " Skins " and " shirts " or " Tutterrow ' s Dynamic Dwarfs " and " Raker ' s Mighty Midgets " developed hot rivalry before the end of the season. The small fry never hear the end of incidents like eating from their trays or going up the wrong side of the stairs. But it was a freshman, Thornton Lambert, who won the Roines yell contest. The freshmen have their representatives to Know ' Em Poem, too. They are Anton Holevas, Walter Reinacker, Carolyn Kuebler and Mary Ann McCrary. Miss McCrary, as president of freshmen girls, was to light the GLM candle at installation service in March, but in a streamlining of the ceremony, candles were omitted. However, she is still full-fledged president and Klee Smith and Barbara Jacobs are her assistants. Freshmen Robert Coins, Allen Glass, Charles Smith, James Jackson, Robert Reifeis and Dean Royalty were the ten high scorers from junior high in the Decathlon Contest in January. First-year people had a try at Mask and Wig this year, too, for the first time in its history — another broken record! Geraldean Powell, Norma Jean Chaney, James Short, Marjorie Sher, Betty Bratcher, Robert Buell, Jerry Gasho and Wesley Walton are the freshmen pledges. 30 w. itli the radio turned down low playing " Little Man You ' ve Had a Busy Day, " the little man in question mumbles through a bi-i-g yawn, " How true, how true! " and slips his tired feet out of his shoes. You see, the little man has just been reviewing Manual activities for the year, so he has a good reason for being tired. He has been running around faster than the discs on a phonograph all day — trying to see everything. First on his list was the May Day program, starring those five beauteous ladies of stage and screen — Well, he can dream, can ' t he? — starring those five beauteous ladies, Almarie Hoffmann, our May Queen, and Barbara Arnold, Ann Etherington, Norma Hupke and Wilma Rooker, her attendants. Famous Hollywood personalities, Mexican seiioritas and characters stepping from between book covers entertained Her Majesty and the court at the third-period celebration on May 3. A peep at the next item on the little man ' s list reveals some facts about Manual ' s forty-ninth birthday anni- versary celebration. Portraying " The Singing Belles from Frisco " and " Dangerous Dan McGrew, " a group of students helped the alumni celebrate on Feb. 19. Two-gun " Mac, " our own " Skipper " McComb, in checkered shirt, suspenders and a bona fide-looking beard, was almost unrecognizable. An in-school performance, featur- ing a huge birthday cake, also recognized Dame Manual ' s birth date. Now we come to some musical events on his itinerary. The fifth annual concert, " featuring novelty selec- tions, marches, classics, solos and swing numbers, " according to the Philip Morris advertisements, was presented by the Manual Band on Jan. 21. The appearance of Mr. Ferdinand Schaefer, leading " Begin the Beguine, " highlighted an assembly given by the Manual Orchestra Jan. 13. Mr. Fabien Sevitsky and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra visited Manual March 1, and a farce, " Romeo and Juliet, ' was presented by the Boys Glee Club March 9. Betty McDonel, Bob Murray and Dick Deer had lead roles in " Lady Spitfire, " comedy presented by the Mask and Wig Club Jan. 13; while speech students appeared on " High School Hour " radio program Jan. 11. The little man says he could ramble on and on about the annual GLM Vaudeville Dec. 3, an auditorium pro- gram based on an outside reading course in English classes, science, language and history department programs, war stamp sales, Navy essay contest winners and a hundred other things. But he is so sleepy and tired that he is just going to refer you to the pictures coining on the next pages. 32 TQTUSTDUTTODC JB MONDE UNDO TERRA TERRE TERRA LACUS LAC UGC PORTARE PORTER PORTAR TEMPUS TEMPS TIEMPO R ed clubs, white clubs, blue ones, too — service and honorary and music groups — forty-one organiations in all. It ' s enough to make your head spin faster than the records on the phonograph to think of all the activities that go on in these meetings each week. And when these club members go into a huddle, making plans and whispering those very secret secrets, you can be sure something unusual will be the residt. Skating parties, auditorium performances, May Day, banquets, war stamp campaigns, a Red Cross mem- bership drive and dramatic productions are only a few of the events which have their humble beginnings in club meetings. Two of our clubs, Manual Friends of Reading and Warp and Woof, give special consideration to our freshman lads and lasses. Membership in these two clubs is also open to tenth-grade former members. Red and white clubs meet 0:1 alternate Tuesdays a id the other groups schedule their own get-togethers. Besides being lots of fun, clubs are really valuable in teaching us things like leadership and cooperation — how to get along with other people. It is a custom at Manual that the clubs provide entertainment for Her Majesty, the Queen, at May Day celebration, and so the club groups are divided in two parts so that they can alternate in participating each year. They always put on a fine performance, and this year was no exception. All sorts of gala groups enter- tained the Queen, some of them with programs suggested by their club activities. In keeping with the general trend, Manual clubs changed somewhat to fit war needs. New clubs added to the roster are Airplane Spotters, War Service Nurses, Manual History and Baton Club. Let ' s take a peek into the club record album, where we ' ll find a list of officers and activities and pictures. . . . 36 o.cs TW Masoma — Although that song which says " Loyal in Service ' " belongs to the Girls League of Manual, it is just as appropriate for the Masoma Club. These girls lend a hand in all sorts of serv- ices from collecting cards and putting out all-day lists to col- lecting money for the Red Cross in theaters. Ann Etherington President Almarie Hoffmann Vice President Wilma Rooker Secretary -Treasurer Mrs. Ruth H. Shull Miss Helen Tipton Co-sponsors Roines — Baseball ' s appearance at Manual is due largely to the work of this group. They are jokingly referred to as backward seniors because their name is " senior " spelled backwards, but they prove themselves to be any- thing but backward. Besides their annual skating party, athletic luncheons and continual lunch- room duty, they sponsor a fresh- man track meet, and they played the varsity seniors in basketball, losing 36-27. Raymond Raker President Bruce Janert Vice President Max Cohen Treasurer Miss Arda Knox Miss Ada M. Coleman Co-sponsors Student Council — Busy as a bee — That would describe Student Council members this year. They ' ve been backing the war stamp sales and pushing the cam- paign for better order in the lunchroom, and they helped com- pute grade averages for each roll room besides supervising the se- lection of cheer leaders. Robert Murray President Raymond Raker Vice President Ruth Johnson Secretary Geraldean Powell President James Link Vice President Miss Gretchen A. Kemp Miss Dorothy Ellis Co-sponsors 37 Commissioned Officers — Hup-two- three-four! Hup-two-three-four! Hup-two-three-halt! Meet the men who give the orders in our Re- serve Officers Training Corps. The hoys with the sabers and the garrison caps meet on Friday morning before school to plan the torture for the non-coms. Those who cut meeting do most to finance the wiener roasts and parties sponsored by this group because they have to pay a fine. Paul Johnson Major Robert Mann Recording Secretary Raymond Raker Secretary-Treasurer Sgt. Fred Hutson Sponsor N on-Commissioned Officers — Ap- ple-polishing is out and shoe- and button-polishing takes its place with the non-commissioned offi- cers. Among other things they want to make a good appearance at inspection so that the " non " will maybe come off their name when they are seniors, and they will then be members of the Commissioned Officers Club. Junior Red Cross — Taking service men under its wing is a specialty with this club. The girls sponsor drives for pencil stubs and make cookies and candy for the USO. Cartoon scrapbooks, favors, pic- ture puzzles and decks of cards to wounded soldiers, Easter eggs for the Day Nursery, boxes for England and a skating party to make money for the National Children ' s Fund were projects sponsored this year as well as the scrapbook of school activities. The little white boxes with the red cross, used to collect the " Pennies from Heaven. " are a familiar sight to Manualites. Mary Ann Aichhorn President Ruth Fritsche Vice President Loretta Roudebush Treasurer Barbara Tracy Attendance Secretary- Violet Yanakeff Recording Secretary Mrs. Coral T. Black Sponsor 38 Senior Red — Members of this club criticize themselves and each other, all in a friendly spirit, of course. They discuss behavior, dress, etiquette and fads of high school boys and girls. Sweaters without shirts, worn by the boys, short skirts and crew cuts all come in for their share of criti- cism when these seniors get to- gether. They sponsored the col- lection of toys for the Day Nurs- ery, too. Ruth Johnson President Ray Schwomeyer Vice President Barbara Arnold Recording Secretary Wilma Rooker Attendance Secretary- Edward Reifeis Treasurer Miss Dorothy Ellis Sponsor Senior ft 7 hite — Like their friends in the Red Section, this club aided in the collection of toys and held heated discussions on date eti- quette, behavior and dress. They talk about everything from when it is correct to wear saddle shoes and bobby socks or pumps and hose to pros and cons of " pitchin ' . " Richard Deer President Joe Lex Vice President Betty Allanson Treasurer Mabel Beck Recording Secretary- Louise Mikels Attendance Secretary Miss Dorothy Ellis Sponsor Girls League of Manual Council — This group is the executive body of the Girls League, which in- cludes all girls in Manual. Among their activities are planning in- stallation exercises, GLM vaude- ville and May Day. They also aided in shopp ing and packing Christmas boxes. Mrs. Ruth H. Shull Sponsor 39 i 1 1 Block M — Earning a letter for par- ticipation in sports is the re- quirement for membership in this club. And how the girls go for those Block M ' s! The sale of ice cream which rooters ate at foot- ball games last fall was sponsored by these lettermen. When th boys blaze forth in their red and white sweaters, they certainly aren " t hard to be seen. Mr. Harry Thomas Sponsor Hi-Y — Open to all boys in school, this club is affiliated with the YMCA. Although in-school meet- ings are infrequent, inforrml gatherings at the Y are the order of the day, and club members enjoy Y facilities for practicing up on their basketball and swim- ming. Richard Deer President William Sharkey Vice President Joe Mennel Secretary Edward Gallagher Treasurer Mr. Clarence Bruness Sponsor Girl Reserves — A candlelight initia- tion service honored the new members of this club this semes- ter. War activities accented their club plans, and for servicemen they collected pocket novels and funny books, made cartoon scrap- books and place cards for the food trays at Billings Hospital. The Girl Reserves collaborate with the YWCA. Marilyn Chapman President Dolores Lepper Vice President Mary Lou Burns Secretary Maxine Curtis Treasurer Jo Ann Huntsman Inter-Club Council Representative Miss Dorothy Forsyth Sponsor 40 Leaders — Made up of physical edu- cation squad leaders, this club of 58 members met every Tuesday to refresh themselves on leaders ' aims and to do apparatus work. The club is unique in that its sponsor, Mr. Alvin Romeiser, is also president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Maybe it ' s less confusing that way. Latin — The annual Saturnalia with its colorful Roman chariot race and stunts by language pupils is sponsored by this club each year. They discussed Latin literature and sang Latin words to familiar songs accompanied by the little organ. After-school parties are a special treat for these linguists. Don Miller President William Lee Vice President Barbara Meyer Attendance Secretary Norma Hupke Recording Secretary Ann Etherington Treasurer Miss Elizabeth Davis Sponsor Spanish — " In Spain they say, ' Si si ' , " and in Spanish club mem- bers answer present with " aqui. " the Spanish word for " here. " They also carry out the annual custom of filling a bag or jar with candy and other " goodies " and beating on it till it breaks, whereupon the audience scram- bles for the good things which fly all over the floor. They learn Spanish songs and take part in the Saturnalia. Bill Robertson President Rosemary Englert Vice President Mary Fritsche Secretary Robert Mann Treasurer William Freije Marshal Miss Martha Kincaid Sponsor 41 War Service Nurses — Angels of Mercy is what these girls plan to be, and they ' re working hard at their ambition. Field trips to St. Vincent Hospital and Indiana University Medical Center are in a conspicuous place on their ac- tivity list. Speakers from the In- diana Nurse Procurement Office, the WAC and the teaching staffs of City and St. Vincent hospitals talked to the girls, and a senior student from St. Vincent also spoke. Mary Lechner President Mary Hardcastle Vice President Jo Ann Gallamore Attendance Secretary Dorothy Thompson Recording Secretary Miss Katherine Mertz Sponsor Home Economics — A d v i s i n g on clothes and actions of a high school girl, color schemes in clothing and house decoration and what the girls can do in the war effort, outside speakers have talked to these girls. Margaret Burks President ( ai«il n I linn Vice President Mary McDonald Treasurer Shirley Adams Attendance Secretary- Rosalie Buckles Recording Secretary Mrs. Florence Boots Mrs. Dorothy Kenoyer Co-sponsors Business Girls — Contributions to Red Cross and cartoon and story ?crapbooks comprised the war activities of this club. Talks about personality and dress and jobs were made by outside speak- ers. These model secretaries in the making are headed by Ruth Johnson President Vera Chaine Vice President Laura Tuttle Attendance Secretary Wilma Lohkamp Recording Secretary Norma Schnepf Treasurer Miss Cleo Frazier Sponsor ■VI Stagehands — These are the boys who make it possible for stage presentations to come off on the dot and smoothly. They are " chief cooks and bottle washers, " as the old saying goes, and are responsible for cleaning the stage, having scenes, curtains, lights, microphone and a hun- dred other details ready to go for any auditorium production. James Perkins Manager Robert Juday Assistant Manager John Petry Electrician Victor DeFelice William Boaz Wesley Murphy Orville Scribner Hands Mr. Lewis Finch Sponsor Movie — Discussions of current mov- ies help the moviegoers to choose their entertainment wisely. Re- views are given by club mem- bers; opinions are formulated accordingly. Club members por- trayed cinema stars in the May Day celebration. Mary Harding President Phyllis Dean Vice President Pattie Leeds Attendance Secretary Stephen Wood Recording Secretary Betty Eckhart Treasurer Mrs. Ada Bing Sponsor Mathematics — Figures — mathemat- ical ones — hold a fascination for this group, and they could prob- ably prove two and two make five if they had enough time. Play- ing mathematical games occupies most of the club periods. William Schumann President Martin Hamer Vice President Eugene Wene Treasurer Joan Taylor Secretary Miss Eva M. Thornton Sponsor 43 Manual Friends of Reading — Cen- tered around books and maga- zines, as the name suggests, activ- ities include discussions of writ- ings and playing of games. Members of this club portrayed characters from books they had read in the annual May Day cel- ebration. Lois Meier President Esther McKinney Vice President La Donna Bedel Recording Secretary Patricia Moehlman Attendance Secretary Mrs. Florence Schad Sponsor Odd Number — Frightened by prom- ises of a " tough " ' initiation out in the country, new members walk into the realm of " worms " and " butterflies " when joining this club. The brave souls who survive the ordeal find that the club studies short stories and reads original ones in club, re- ceiving criticism on their efforts. Virgil Cronley President Almarie Hoffmann Vice President Josephine Penna Attendance Secretary Viola Woodard Recording Secretary Patsy Armstrong Treasurer Mr. John H. Moffat Sponsor Mask and Wig — Another Sarah Bernhardt or a Bob Hope or two may come as a result of talent plus Miss Guleff ' s coaching in our " dramer " group. Presenting " Lady Spitfire, " three-act com- edy, and an afternoon of three one-act plays kept them busy this year. Bett y McDonel President Bob Murray Vice President Jane Turley Secretary Barbara Turley Treasurer William Freije Pledge Chairman Miss Menka Guleff Sponsor 14 M ,4 Booster Staff—A nose for news and a knack for collecting money is what these students must have plenty of, and they are proud of the fact that they took five prizes at Butler Field Day and their bi-weekly boasts an NSPA " first class honor " and Quill and Scroll " international first place " ratings. Helen Carter Editor in Chief Mary Fritsche Doris Colligan Associate Editors Almarie Hoffmann Dorothy Reinacker Betty Strols Marilyn Chapman Elsie Stefan Assistant Editors Betty Brickert Business Manager Miss Gretchen A. Kemp Director of Publications Miss Helen A. Haynes Business Adviser MSPS Poetry — In the spring a young man ' s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of — poetry. But poetry is in the thoughts of all the members of this club all year ' round. Besides studying the lives and works of other poets, they create poetry themselves. There are two sections: Andrew Raikos Mary Rose Benjamin Presidents Jack Dillon Betty Petersen Vice Presidents Juanita Gibson Mabel Beck Recording Secretaries Dorothy Reinacker (Catherine Beckham Attendance Secretaries Dick Sturm Louise Fisher Treasurers Miss Jessie Moore Sponsor Booster Agents — To collect money for The Booster and to hand out copies on alternate Fridays, each roll room elects a Booster agent. And woe unto them if they let a subscription go unpaid. So each agent works hard to get his sub- scribers to " dig deep. " Miss Helen A. Haynes Adviser 45 7LS MH — " For freshmen only " says the invisible sign tacked on the door of Room 103 every Friday during the ninth period, for that is when and where this newly formed club meets. Potential officers in our government they could be, for they inform themselves on cur- rent events and enact court pro- cedure at these meetings. Paul Burdsall President LaDonna Johnson Vice President Elfriede Bickel Recording Secretary Imogene Devasher Attendance Secretary Howard Lee Treasurer Miss Adelaide Thale Sponsor Airplane Spotters — Members of the club are looking into the future when they learn to identify types of planes, for this is knowledge they might well use on a job after graduation from hi h school. Harold Emmick President Kenneth Innis Vice President Ruth Lambert Attendance Secretary Harriet Sebree Recording Secretary Marjorie Henderson Treasurer Mr. Oran Davis Sponsor Camera— Now look at the birdie and smile! And it ' s not " the saucy little bird on Nellie ' s hat, " either. Developing and enlarging prints with homemade chemicals is valuable experience, and the club gets some good photos of Manual and students too. David Ryner President James O ' Nan Vice President Ermajean Peacock Attendance Secretary Harriet Sebree Recording Secretary Marjorie Henderson Treasurer Mr. James Brayton Sponsor 16 Library Assistants — Is it novel, drama or history that you want? Just ask one of these girls and she will do her best to help you. Never too busy to stamp a book or lend a helping hand when students are stuck with a prob- lem that a librarian can solve, these assistants provide " service with a smile " in our Manual library. Mrs. Florence Schad Librarian Art — Current artists and their work were topics for discussion in this club. Reproductions of 20th cen- tury art for " Picture of the Month " displays were also talked about and plans laid for next year. This group sponsors the " Picture of the Month. " Jack Shipp President Evelyn Boger Vice President Byron King Booster Agent Mr. Oran Davis Sponsor Forum — A big question with the club is whether President Roose- velt will run for a fourth term, and, if he does, who will be his Republican opposition. The fu- ture voters of America get to try their hands at electioneering and discussing news topics, such as our foreign policy and world car- tels, in their club. Hot argu- ments develop sometimes which last outside club even, but whicli encourage wiser thinking and tolerance of other viewpoints. Members of the club appeared on a radio program on which they discussed cartels. Alexander Kasey President Albert Levy Vice President Lena Calderon Recording Secretary Joe Mennel Attendance Secretary Miss Rosana Hunter Sponsor 47 yO» Orchestra — When Mr. Ferdinand Schaefer came to Manual to di- rect the orchestra in a number for their concert, these musicians felt that they were really getting into the big time. And Mr. Schaefer led his first piece of swing music. The orchestra also performed for the all-city Music Festival at Technical Higb School, besides playing for vari- ous in-school productions. Mary Rose Benjamin Concert Mistress Miss Roberta Trent Director A Band — " And the band played on. " At football games and audi- torium programs, at a Scottish Rite luncheon, at Memorial Day- services in Garfield Park and at Parent-Teacher Association meet- ings, soloists, groups and the en- tire band made their appearance. They presented their annual night concert again this year and marched at ROTC inspection. Robert Schwartz Band Captain Mr. Charles Henzie Director Band — The goal toward which the beginners in B Band work is a seat in A Band. In B Band they get their training, and with practice every night — homework — they may make A Band. The boys from this training group get to march with the A Band in the Armistice Day parade when the ROTC unit deprives the band of some of its members. The B Band appeared at a baseball game this spring. Mr. Charles Henzie Director Dance Band — Boogie-woogie is a byword with these " gals and guys, " to quote Kay Kyser. Since so many of the boys are playing with other bands, they don ' t get to make as many appearances to- gether as in other years, but they strut their stuff for senior parties and USO and servicemen ' s dances. Mr. Charles Henzie Director Girls Glee Club — Ah-ho-ho-li-Ii-li — Vocalizing keeps these singers in tune. They entertained church groups, grade school P-TA groups and women ' s club meetings and performed for auditorium pro- grams. Barbara Arnold President Barbara Schmedel Vice President Marilyn Chapman Treasurer Alice Manwaring Recording Secretary Mary Lechner Attendance Secretary Miss Freda Hart Director Choir — In their beautiful robes the Choir makes an effective picture. They provided part of the Christ- mas observance and with other groups caroled in the halls before school. Victor DeFelice President Harold Boltinghouse Vice President Beverly Cook Secretary Irma Elofson Treasurer Mrs. Edith Binkley Director Music Club — Pupils have an oppor- tunity to display their musical talents in programs held every other meeting. On the alternate weeks the club time is used for singing. Kenneth Hoffmann President Virginia Swaynie Vice President Louise Fisher Secretary Margaret Purpura Treasurer Miss Freda Hart Sponsor Boys Glee Club — These boys pre- sented " Romeo and Juliet " at an after-school performance. They also caroled at Christmas and ap- peared in other programs. Bill Donahue President Harold Boltinghouse Vice President Orville Scribner Librarian Mrs. Edith Binkley Director X ake me out to the ball game; take me out with the crowd — And we do mean crowd, for confetti- throwing, ice cream-eating, cheering Manualites really turned out for one of the best sports seasons we have had in a long time. While heroes of the Mediterranean, Southeastern-Asiatic and Burma Theaters have been making the front page in city papers, heroes of the South Side Theater have made headlines in the Booster — heroes of football, basketball, track, tennis and baseball too! Bvit wed better take them one at a time. Coaches Clarence Bruness and Leslie Maxwell were justly proud of their grid proteges, who landed Man- ual in third place in city competition, behind Shortridge and Tech, with two wins, one tie and two losses. Broad Bipple and Washington accounted for the first three games while Tech and Cathedral proved too much for the Redskins. These were our only two losses for the entire season, and the addition of two more victories and another deadlock completes the card. A second third place, this time in city basketball, was won for us by our hardwood quintet. With seven wins and three losses, they came out with a .700 percentage. Howe and Shortridge squeezed into the first two places in city standing. The final summary of all games on the Redskin schedule totaled 12 victories and 6 losses. Manualites have proved themselves no dub with a tennis racquet also this year. Jim Froelich, now in the Navy, survived in the finals of the Martin-Menges tennis tournament, and Jo Ann Hooper became queen of the courts when she took the girls " singles tennis tourney. Other girls spent outside time on badminton and volleyball, and some learned dances which were used for auditorium programs. We have pictures of activities in posture classes and on parallel bars, too. Baseball, starting a return engagement which we hope will be a long one, is back at Manual after an absence of twelve years. We got off to a good start on our seven-game schedule by defeating the Deaf School. That game and the season were opened officially when " Pitcher " McComb tossed the first ball to Team Mate Barnhart, who was in the batter ' s box. Our tracksters marked one of the most successful seasons in years for Manual. They stood third in city and second in sectional competition, and eight were eligible for the state meet. The mile relay team established a new record at the Washington sectionals, and Paul Stoyonovich won city championship in the mile and established a new record in winning the city cross-country meet. On the next five pages you will find picture records of our heroes in action. While some of these boys and girls have participated for the last time in Manual athletics, prospects look bright on all fronts — football, basketball, track, baseball, tennis and girls " sports. ; o ?, ton Smith 45 ton Gbkz 51 Aax Cohen 69 )on Hafcr 54 bn Miller 98 foqCrouch 98 arrcnBog ' arci 62 m Lex 77 :hartos Crow B lmGrovGS 89 tobMouSQr 9 a fn . : gef 89 9B V rsitL[ Freshman o WeARA ■- ' •■■■■■■■ ' ■■■ ■ ' ■ ' ■ ■■-■•■- ' ■• 1 95 ' ' ■ ' " ' " ' ■ ' ' ■■■■ ' .•■ ' - : »,■■■■ HI aBBUHT « ■■:■ ■ KMuHEHB : ' If •■•.;■ ..-:.. ■■■■- 1 : •■.■,■•■■■■.■■.
