Text from Pages 1 - 60 of the 1946 volume:

The world is a looking glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it and it will in turn look sourly upon you ; laugh at it, and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion. — William Makepeace Thackeray SENIOR BOOSTER Reflections Published by the Class of 1946 Emmerich Manual Training High School Indianapolis, Indiana TA.TS rmpar WlcCoxn ADNUNISTRATIO c tO. 3. BorixbcaT Ir -V,6e P ciNtipal — Still o ' er these scenes my mem ' ry wakes, And fondly broods with miser car el Time but th ' impression stronger makes, As streams their channels deeper wear. — Robert Burns And so will the reflections of this year at Manual he cherished long after other days are but misty, faded dreams. The classes and parties and friends will be not merely things of the past, but live and glowing mem- ories to be treasured always. Visions of lunchroom lines on the first days of school, mad dashes to beat the tardy bell, and locker room gab-fests will be hoarded long after time has crowded exams and duller routines out of mind. Too vivid in school-day memories ever to be forgotten are Principal E. H. Kemper McComb and Vice Principal Wilbur S. Barnhart, whose wise planning and patient guidance in our behalf will serve us well in the years to come. Teachers whose encouraging faith steadied faltering steps and whose ideals became ours, teachers whose inevitable grade books were our goad to achievement and whose sympathetic advice helped mold the futures of so many seniors, teachers — not forbidding figureheads in classrooms but real, heart-warming friends — they loom large in our gallery of memories. Most of all, we ' ll remember the happiness of our first peace-time high school year and the joy we had at greeting our returning veterans. We ' ll remember the gladness we felt when Mr. W. Finley Wright returned as dean of boys, Mr. E. Edward Green came back to his duties in the speech department, and Mr. Bowman Hall doffed his Air Corps uniform for his tasks on the science staff and the track course. Our last faculty veteran, Mr. Charles Yeager, we lost to Shortridge after he had spent only a brief period at his art department post. To these, and to all our G I classmates, we ' ll say again, " Welcome home. " Miss lone Colligan, Mr. Walter Floyd and Mr. Leonard Nolte came back in the role of teachers to the corri- dors they once trod as pupils. Mrs. Thelma Morgan served most of the year as a substitute in the home eco- nomics department for Mrs. Ivy Fuller Olds, who was seriously injured in an automobile accident. With Mr. Carroll O. Skaar ' s return from a semester at Howe, Mr. Ray S. Millikan retired from the science department. Mrs. Hazel Dorman, commercial, also retired; Mrs. Lois Doughtery, home economics, resigned, and Miss Honora Curran, English and language, transferred to Broad Ripple. Undimmed to all at Manual are the memories of three faculty members, Vice Principal Bertram Sanders, Mrs. Ruth H. Shull, dean of girls, and Coach Clarence Bruness, whose deaths have shadowed the brightness of this year ' s reflections. Their absence left an empty space in the hearts of teachers and students. We will not cease to miss the kindly counsel and generous service which made them dear. or. 5aTt6ers Mrs.SfcvulL Mt. £ -nnaas5 Mrs. Ada M. Bing, English Mrs. Edith R. Binkley, Music Mrs. Coral T.

But still it clings and climbs. Life ' s trials beat hard upon the heart Of hopeful, happy Youth; And Winter ' s Death, awakened Reality bare, Steals softly into flaming Youth And challenges Despair I But determined — for it ' s Youth, And gay — for it ' s Youth, And confident — like the ivy Unbeaten Youth still climbs. Etched deep in the memories of the Class of ' 46 will be our senior year, especially the traditional Ivy Day ceremony which opened the pageantry of senior activities. We ' ll recall the confidence we felt when our class was together for the first time, and that surge of pride when we watched Class President George Young plant the ivy, realizing that our class, too, was joining the cavalcade of more than 10,000 seniors who have left their markers by the old ivy-covered building. We ' ll smile when we remember the individuality of our class — holding the Ivy Day ceremony outside in- stead of in the auditorium — replacing long ribbon streamers with short lapel knots in red and white, our class colors. And we ' ll treasure the arm-bands designed by Harold Einmick and the Ivy Day poem written by Rosalynn Henricks. We won ' t forget, either, the smug pleasure at attending the Ivy Day and Christmas dances in the girls ' gymnasium after having hung over the balcony railing enviously watching three other senior classes. And we ' ll remember looking forward to our own Class Day, held May 16, which made that day and this year really ours. It was all fun, but we ' ll remember, too, the uncertainty we felt as we thought of leaving school forever, and the sudden poignant desire to be entering the doors of Manual again as freshmen instead of whispering goodbye. And, most of all, we ' ll repeat our heartfelt wish that the Class of ' 46 will have contributed something to the credit of our school in return for the years of happiness she has given us.

With Barbara Meyer as editor and Juana Griffard as art editor, the yearbook staff included Hildegard Bickel and Rosalynn Henricks, assistant editors; Betty Davis, club editor; Albert Chernin, sports editor; and Elnora Noe, assistant art editor. Lois Meier headed the business staff, assisted by Vivian Gutzwiller. Bookkeepers were Esther McKinney, Dolores Smith, Helen Stoykovich, Barbara Kidwell and Madonna Johnson. Celia Passo, who was seen scampering here and there with her faithful photographers, Mr. Carl F. Hanske and James Link, acted as photographic editor, assisted by La Donna Bedel. Misses Gretchen A. Kemp and lone Colligan served as editorial advisers. Members of Miss Betty Foster ' s commercial art classes assisted Miss Griffard and Miss Noe on the art work in preparation, perhaps, for the time when they too will find themselves confronted with the task of recording their own reflections. w l Lady of Letters » Leading Lady Marjorie Elliott Success piled on success during the 1945-46 drama season. Theater Guild produced " Anna Lucasta " in Chicago .... Actors Incorporated revived " Pygmalioi " on Broadway . . . and Turnei Bullock ' s " Lady of Letters " hit the Manual circuit! Raymond Massey, Maurice Evans and Marjorie Elliott all did their bit to hold the Thespian light high this year as the pert Miss Elliott starred with Fred Arnold in the local production of the senior class before an over- flow audience. The story takes place in a one-horse college town in Texas where Adelaide Willifer (Miss Elliott), wife of a Southern college professor (Arnold) , feels neglected by her stubborn and humorless husband and his cyni- cal, witty daughter Susie, played by Rosemary Englert. Hoping to gain a little importance by publishing a book, the heroine innocently buys the manuscript of a novel from a struggling young author, Richard Mayes (Harold Emmick), who is stranded by chance on her doorstep. Adelaide signs her name to the manuscript and sends it to her husband ' s publisher. The book be- comes an instant success, and the small college town gains a place on the map. Mrs. Willifer, deciding to bluff it out, soon becomes the toast of the town and finds herself a famous per- sonage about the snobbish college circle which hitherto spurned her. Just after the specially conceived " Lady of Letters " degree is bestowed upon the newly-found genius, the real author returns with his check that bounced and reveals his identity to her still-skeptical family. Final ex- posure comes when Mrs. Lawrence (Shirley Anderson), who had previously known Mayes, appears in front of the college board. The inevitable happy ending is reached by Adelaide when the board promises to conceal her attempted plagiarism, and her family realize their neglect has caused her innocent misdemeanor. Other important characters were portrayed by Janice Mathews, Katherine Popcheff and Albert Chernin, while La Donna Bedel, Ernest Vanus, Carl Reifeis and Mary Kreutzberger handled supporting roles. Hazel Estle served as stage manager and prompter, and the production was directed by Mr. E. Edward Green. Senior sponsor, Miss Dorothy Ellis, who headed house arrangements, was assisted by other faculty members and senior committees responsible for costumes, publicity, property and stage setting. 1 I r •» hJI - A -- r For Memory has painted this perfect day With colors that never jade. And we find at the end of a perfect day The soul of a friend we ' re made. — Carrie Jacobs Bond " I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America . . As one tries to catch all the memories of this year at Manual and gather them into one shining knot, fleeting thoughts of waving " hi " in the halls, leaning against the wall between classes, finding seats in the auditorium, reaching the seemingly endless lunch line — all those taken for granted scenes — slip out to form a hazy cloak about the year ' s special events. The quiet beauty and simplicity of the Christmas program with the choir and glee clubs clustered around a manger scene tableau started the series of major activities in which the music department played no small part. That " good oh mountain music " for the " Sourwood Mountain " romance of Suzie Adams and Billie Jack- son (Patricia Hoffhein and Bill Donahue) was provided by the choir, and a railroadin ' quartet in " Little Red Caboose " gained such acclaim at the annual band concert that they were called in for a repeat performance at the Woody Herman dance at the Murat Temple. Fred Arnold won the senior-autographed baton as student conductor at the concert. Local beauty blossomed out in full strength when " Queentuplets " Agnes Andrews, Carol and Caroline Breithaupt, Rosemary Englert and Mary Ann White received their crowns of ivy from the track boys on whom they were later to pin victory ribbons. The queens, chosen by Booster subscribers from a field of 22 candidates nominated by clubs, presided at the five home track meets. Assembly service programs, pep sessions and Honors Day observances, which added variety to roll call periods, will always bring to mind the impressive all-school flag salute. And we ' ll never go into any doctor ' s clinic without recalling petite Nurse Mertz to whose office we we went for help when we were ill. TB pictures, snapped without " the birdie, " and hearing tests were a part of our health program under her direction. With the traditional pomp and ceremony, the student body honored the beauteous May Queen of 1946 who received her crown too late to appear on the picture parade. Succeeding Nelda Carver and her 1945 court, who appear on the following pages, was Jean Maschmeyer, with Hildegard Bickel, Betty Davis, Phyllis Koeh- ler and Lois Meier as her attendants. And then as the May Day observance added a semi-final touch to the year ' s activities, eyes turned involuntarily toward the real climax — and the strains of " ' Tis June, the Month of Roses " at Cadle Tabernacle. Highlighting mid-February activities, Manual ' s fifty-first birthday brought forth the premiere of last year ' s golden anniversary movies and a birthday party in the boys ' gymnasium, where door prizes and music by the dance band added to the hilarity. Roll Room 227 won the Hall of Fame contest based on illustrious Manual graduates. The graduates ' contest, however, resolved itself into competition in finding time enough for handshakes and chats. Members of the Class of ' 11, celebrating their thirty-fifth anniversary, saw their own George Joslin elected president before he took over as emcee for the program in the auditorium which featured the Girls Glee Club Alumnae, Ray Miller, Gordon Grow and Gareth Sampson. fhf V ;. Freshmen Freshman Frame-Up When in years hence freshmen open their treasured memory books, they ' ll turn with loving fingers to the dog-eared first pages crowded with reflections of their early days at Manual. As the blank leaves in the back begin to fill, new events will find a place, but nothing will ever seem quite so dear as that all-important first year. Particularly will they recall that " first day " when helpful Masomas and Roines steered them to the brown giant locker — an oasis m the bewilderment of trying to find their classrooms and teachers. Some of them later returned the favor as Betty Jones and Doris Miller served tasty tarts and punch at the Masoma mothers ' tea. Setting aside crumpled red and white streamers, a few battered football programs, and a badly worn Facts for Freshmen manual, they ' ll come to a Top Ten list sporting the names of their own classmates, David Cop- page, John Sharp, Frieda Thompson, June Kennedy, Joyce Hilgemeier, Lois Ann Tucker, Rosemary Orman and Catherine Organ. Others who received Top Ten certificates at the term ' s end were Mary Thomas, Jean Tutterrow, Edwin Mussmann, Arthur Harris, Gene Hallock, David Pattison, William Sudkamp and William Hueber. And they ' ll remember Honors Day in January with their class well represented on the stage. Anna Per- ronie, who received the Masoma award for the highest freshman girl ' s scholastic standing; Helen Earles, repre- sentative on the student council of the Children ' s Museum; Henry Newlin, Charles Lynch, Dick Mayes, Rich- ard Blythe, Monte O ' Connor and Roy Zahn, Frenzel ribbon winners, and Deloris Andrews and Forrest Higgs, winners in a color harmony design contest, are only a few freshmen who helped fill the pages of their class history. They ' ll point with pride to the Forty-Niners column in The Booster, written for, by and of members of the Class of ' 49, and they ' ll remember their triumph over upperclassmen when Freshman Roll Room 332 walked off with first place honors for the sale of victory stamps. Nor will they forget how their fellow classmate, Geraldine Richeson, made such a big hit playing the marimba at the annual band concert. Glancing back, they ' ll wonder too if they ' ve been seeing double in quintuplet time, for on their class roster are five sets of twins (four of which the photographer caught) — Robert and Richard Oliphant, Paul and Pau- line Byers, Morris and Rachel Meshulam, Helen and I rmah Constant and Shirley and Ralpha Johnson. Yes, this year ' s freshman class, with all this to its credit, has a right to boast that " good things come in small packages. " Sophomores Sophomore Double Trouble Relieved of their " freshie " status as they joined the ranks of upperclassmen, this year ' s sophomores will long remember 1946 and the happy days their second year of high school brought. Losing a little of their awe of teachers and learning to accept homework as a necessary evil, they began to realize how much school life meant to them as they played a greater part in school activities. This year ' s record proves the promise they showed as freshmen and points to a long list of noteworthy achievements before they leave Manual ' s halls. Already catching the eyes of athletic enthusiasts, Ronald Ryan, Ralph Volpp, Ralph Millspaugh, Rich- ard Johnson, Dennis Bailey, Eugene Lucas, Merlin Brown and Don Whitlock received Frenzel ribbons for outstanding gymnastic ability. However, " all brawn and no brain " is not applicable to the Class of ' 48, as a quick glance at Top Ten records will show. John Leisure, Robert Stuckey, Margie Board, Jack Edwards, Nila Jo Hawkins, Barbara Snodgrass, Phyllis Miedema, Roy Turley, Charles Kriech and Joseph Mascari were recipients of Top Ten certificates at the end of the fall semester. Not lacking in artistic talent, members of the sophomore class will remember Wilma Harding, who was awarded a Saturday scholarship to John Herron Art School, and Janet Weaver, who received the Civic Theater Workshop membership for outstanding dramatic ability. High on the list of music enthusiasts, femme Stradivaris in the personages of Viola Reifeis, Elfriede Bickel, Carolyn Kenyon and Betty Stefan appeared as a string quartet at the awarding of lyres during a music department auditorium. Not to be omitted is Hugh Wheatley, who merits the title of collector-extraordinary for his stamp hobby, nor the sophomore creators of reflection double trouble — the Harvey twins, Henry and James, and the McGuffeys, Polly and Jo Ann. Florann Greeson, junior student council president, and Waneta Staten and Johnny Lee, top scorers in a geometry contest, also gave second year students their " claim to fame. " J uniors ' Tone and ' Tine, Junior Team Memories of that decisive time when dreams begin to take form and the future seems so close and full of promise will envelop juniors as they pause to reflect upon friendly associations and accomplishments of their third year at Manual. They ' ll think of the pangs of regret and confusion, the contradictory, mixed-up feelings of their junior year as they realized that the last lap of school was at hand and from those few months, the bare, white years of the future would be molded. They ' ll remember the thrill of expectancy and confidence which overruled their un- derlying fears as they viewed the obstacles overcome. And even after many school day memories become too dim to be focused, visions of those who helped make the Class of ' 47 outstanding will be clear. There ' ll be " Bud " Reinacker, who took time off from his yell leader captaincy to feature in a drums solo, " Calfskin Calisthenics, " for the annual band concert; Rose Ann Rider, who charmed the whole school with her piano arrangements, and Joan Prather, who received a Saturday scholarship to John Herron Art School. Juniors will remember, too, the prowess of their four members of the varsity basketball team; Wallace Leverenz, who participated in the Martin-Menges tennis tournament, and Ted Pollard, who received a Frenzel medal for outstanding ability in physical education. And when in pensive mood they ' ll bring to mind journalism students busily engaged in clipping newspaper articles, or world history sessions around the globe in the library, where another diligen t pupil draws out a book on her outside reading list from an assistant at the desk — also a classmate. Out on the lawn visions of the Camera Club " piggyback- totem pole " will appear and the " pill pushers " of a sub-deb club, always ready to peddle their wares to test-weary students, will make a bright spot in the picture. And at the day ' s end — long rows of girls in locker rooms putting on their lips . . . pulling out their locks . . . taking the shine off their noses . . . Then, lights out! Screams, blood-curdling, rend the darkness. The bony tentacles of the science department ' s Susie The Skeleton lock themselves into the shoulders of a Junior Miss — Another Manual " Male Animal " has produced the daily locker-room meller-drammer! Finally, with quiet and sanity restored, the girls pick up their books and join the boys at the bicycle or locker room doors to wend their way homeward. !§•, it I V %mm | i ■ ( ' W IT • .; ate MUSIC Dcorvcc Bcnrtb B BaT 6 3 A Ban6 4 OxcHc ti ' CL 5 arris ' Glee Club 6 CHoir T Boi s Glee Cixtb Mirror, mirror, please reflect A nose for news that ' s circumspect. With pencils and notebooks in hand, these busy scribes can be seen stalking the halls long after hours in search of items for the publication of the bi-weekly Booster or news releases for city and neighborhood newspapers. Editors Albert Chernin, Hildegard Bickel, and Albert Levy took firm hands at the wheel and steered Ye Booster safely and successfully through the year ' s hard journey, in fervent hopes that they might add another NSPA First Class Honor Rating and a Quill and Scroll Honor Award to the string The Booster has been collecting since 1936. To cope with inflationary costs of printing and press work, vigorous campaigns were launched with promises of de- lightful treats for 100 per cent roll rooms, and 11 of the Eooster agents won season football or sectional tourney tickets. The fall semester ' s " Big Chief Many Feathers " stepped aside for the charming " Bubble Girl, " who took over for the spring semester. Lois Meier, business manager, and her aids were responsible for keeping the money and records in tow and for seeing that Manual ' s servicemen in the United States got their Boosters every two weeks, too. For life is a mirror of king and slave, ' Tis just what we are and do. Then give to the world the best you have, And the best will come back to you. — Madeleine Bridges Smiles on the faces of disabled veterans reflected the fun Junior Red Cross girls had in making cartoon books as one of their 19-16 projects. Other service activities included sponsoring the annual skating party, which benefited the National Children ' s Fund, sending gift boxes to war-devastated Europe, packing Christmas baskets for needy families, making candy-filled stockings for the Indianapolis Day Nursery and compiling a scrapbook of school activities for the year. Offi- cers of the club are Betty Davis, president; Barbara Ferguson, vice president; Hilda Meadows, recording secretary; Betty Robbins, attendance secretary, and Dorothy Emrich, treasurer. Mrs. Coral T. Black is sponsor of the service group. jgNIQR REP ' ii. t. ii. ' I. ' h, ' i. mil M,, 1 1 i hl( i i M „. i. •in ' .i ' ,( ' ,» ' .ill- 1 MASK VI;,,,,. ' VAB AND WIG CLUB ' in- i ' V ,« ' a,, i Successful presentation of two matinees and one evening performance plus a skit for Masoma alumnae reflected Mask and Wig members ' long hours of planning and practice this year. Under direction of Miss Menka Guleff the first semester, the Thespians presented an evening performance of " Spring Fever. " a three-act comedy-romance, and two comedies, " The Ghost of a Freshman " and " The Early Worm, " at a matinee. Mr. E. Edward Green returned from the Army to re- sume sponsorship of the club the second semester and direct " Sauce for the Gosling, " and " In the Spring a Young Man ' s Fancy " for two one-act matinees. Marjorie Elliott, president ; Rosemary Englert, vice president; Katherine Popcheff, at- tendance secretary; Janice Mathews, treasurer, and Antone Holevas, pledge chairman, are officers. Honorary Clubs! Clubs! And more clubs! To how many clubs do you belong? No reflection of life at Manual will find our school lacking in provision for that phase of adult citizenship. In the chain of memories are membership links aplenty — some for honoraries, some for vocational or hobby clubs and some purely for pleasure groups. That three-bell signal on Tuesday sent underclassmen scurrying to sessions with the chessboard, stamp collection and camera lens. Seniors, on the other hand, were either socially or professionally minded as they tripped down to the gymna- sium for a lesson in dancing or stalked with dignity to the meeting where a guest speaker defined the attributes of the per- fect secretary. 1 ■s 0 f Koines — Besides feeding and cheer- ing athletic teams at annual lunch- eons, these boys have sponsored a track meet, a basketball game and a skating party, with profits used for track equipment and the athletic fund. Roines boys ' in- terest in their senior honorary organization is always reflected after graduation in alumni activi- ties, which have included this year a skating party and steak fry for active and alumni members. Harold Emmick President James O ' Nan [ ' ice President Carl Reifeis Secretary George Young Treasurer Miss Arda Knox Sponsor Miss Ada M. Coleman Co-Sponsor Block M — These red and white Block M sweaters reflect many moments of hard team playing and spectator excitement at foot- ball, basketball, baseball or track- contests. Only boys who have won Block M ' s in some sport may be- long to this club, sponsored by Athletic Director Harry Thomas. Cjroups Not only are clubs a valuable means of practicing what is preached in the parliamentary procedure training of English VI, but they provide opportunity for the development of community consciousness later to find expression through service clubs, and study and professional groups. So much emphasis is being placed on the importance of extra-curricular activities that some educators advocate a minimum participation requirement for graduation. A club to meet needs of every student has been Manual ' s aim, and if the 23 red and white sections on the club roster don ' t do that, then the administration will welcome any new groups the pupils wish to form. To make the color scheme " All- American, " those groups which meet outside school hours — Mask and Wig, Offi- cers, Block M, Roines and Masoma — are designated as blue clubs. Masoma — Busy as Snow White ' s dwarfs, these senior high girls have spent the year revising their constitution, expanding their " little sister " program, selling war stamps and making Masom i an organization more active and more valuable to Manual. Assist- ing with the alumni birthday celebration, performing school services, taking warm interest in the welfare of freshman girls, Masomas also feted their mothers at a Valentine tea, an innovation this year. Hildegard Bickel President Rosalynn Henricks Vice President Betty Davis Secretary-Treasurer Miss Helen Tipton Sponsor GLM Council — Officers from each English group form the GLM Council, which inducts all girls into the Girls League of Manual at a candlelight ceremony. The council also elects candidates for May Queen and plans the May Day program and all-girl Christ- mas sing. GLM activities this year included sponsoring a skat- ing party, assisting the Junior Red Cross in preparing Christmas boxes and contributing money to purchase gift boxes. Officers of English VII preside at installa- tions and council meetings. Betty Deckard President Barbara Meyer Vice President Dolores Smith Secretary Miss Helen Tipton Sponsor Senior White — Like its sister or- ganization, Senior White held some lively debates on what ' s ac- cording to Emily Post or Elizabeth Woodward, discussing such all- important topics as appropriate dress for commencement, an- nouncements and " date " etiquette. While the " gals " discussed, the " guys " sometimes retired to the gymnasium for pointers in danc- ing. Melvin Townsend President Wilmer Farley Vice President Juana Griffard Recording Secretary Betty Davis Attendance Secretary Katherine Popcheff Treasurer Miss Dorothy Ellis Sponsor Senior Red — To give senior boys and girls an opportunity to dis- cuss problems of social procedure and practice in actual situations is the purpose of Senior Red Club.

How dear to my heart are the sports of my high school, When jotid recollection presents them to view. " C ' mon Red, c ' mon White, c ' mon Manual, let ' s fight! " As Redskins sang the blues for their beloved football and net squads, the crystal globe reflected better- things in store on the cinder and diamond paths in the spring of ' 46. The ill-fated season which Tribesmen mourned found Walter Floyd, one of Manual ' s all-time pigskin greats, in the football driver ' s seat as the Training School ' s ' 45 football squad darted into a three-game winning streak at the expense of Columbus, Howe and Washington before collapsing under the superior strength of Southport, Tech, Broad Ripple, Shortridge and Cathedral. Though the scores on paper were hauntingly top-heavy, young Redskins displayed considerable talent which the seer ' s ball shows should raise Manual again to its rightful position in high school footbali circles. On the basketball front the same situation confronted Coach Oral Bridgford, and the Tepee Town snipers suffered similar consequences. Except for an early season victory over Mooresville the Tribe met defeat in all 16 regularly scheduled encounters plus a four-way tournament. They pulled a victory out of the bag over Ripple ' s defending semi-final champions in the sectional before falling to Beech Grove. The outlook looms bright as the cindermen exhibit power in the field and distance events, but their chances in the dashes are still a mystery. Coaches Raymond Van Arsdale and Volney Ward received a welcome boon with the return of Bowman Hall, assistant track mentor. On the east side of Delavan Smith Athletic Field where the national pastime is played, the crystal ball announced, through the medium of Athletic Director Harry Thomas, that Coach Alvin Romeiser, who be- came freshman net coach, handed over the baseball reins to Coach Walt. The story the globe reflected began to blur at this point, as the local track and baseball teams were all keyed up for their inaugural tussles. According to the story-telling ball, all was not quiet on the girls ' athletic front. In the fall the Indian gals hustled right into things when they trooped out to the Crimson stadium and Garfield Park for tennis and archery before the cold forced them indoors to compete for Frenzel medals in basketball, volleyball and badminton. The South Side squads showed some tricky work in tumbling, apparatus and dancing when their classes moved into the picture. The globe reveals one thing clearly . . . that Manual, in defeat and victory, will always produce real sportsmen prepared to take their places as men of the world in the greater skill-demanding game of life.
