Nineteen Hundred Thirty-one
A Japanese theme coinfbined with as va-
ried a presentation of athletics, activities,
eit Cetera-as we were able to innovate-is
the completed 1931 Optimist.
If the ebook recalls any pleasant remem-
brainsces of this year-our efforts are re-
warded in full.

Q The Vallue of a. High School can only be measured in terms of its re-
sults, and the results to be obtained are influenced and greatly affected by
the facilities of the institution.
We are now engaged in an expansion program, a program we trust
commensurate with the educational needs of our community for the present
and near future. This program not only includes more room and equip-
ment but also such expansion of curriculum as will make the course of
study more pllasticg a course that will lenld itself more adequately to indi-G
vidual tastes and abilities.
The vocational courses are constantly growing in popularity. There
have been many requests for Manual Training and several students are
particularly interested in art. The demand for commercial subjects indi-
cates necessary expansion in this department.
Each year the school is being more fully appreciated as a health
agencyg an institution for the development of strong bodies as well as
trained intellects. We firlly appreciate the value of an adequate physical
education program for both girls and boys and arrangements are being
made for this instruction.
We are very grateful for the progress of this school and appreciate the
privilege of having a part in its expansion and growth. This onward marclh
is written year 'by year in eaclh volume of our Gptimist. Such a record is
cherished by all who knwow our high school. To read the Optimist is to set
the 'blood a-tingle, though time has slowed the pulse.

By Edward Klemine
Vigor, Vitality, vim and punch,
Tlhe courage to act on a sudden hunch,
The nerve to tackle the hardest thing,
With feet that climb and hands that cling,
And a heart that never forgets to sing,
Sand and grit in a concrete base,
A friendly smile in an honest face,
T'he spirit that helps when another's down,
That knows how to- scatter the darkest frown,
That loves his neighbor and loves his town,
To say I will, for you know you can,
To look for the best in every man,
To meet each withering knock-out blow,
And come again because you know
You've got the best of the whole blamed show,

The Moon was shining from the sky,
h He shone upon the earth,
The iMan in the Moon was gazing,
But his View was olistrueted hy girth.
He strained his eyes and raised his brows
But nothing could he see.
At last he said, "l'rn getting old,
I'm getting I'at,l' said he.
'LI shouldn't have calten so much green cheese,
l'm so fat I can hardly see.
Now never again will I get to View
'Wl1at's llappeinling down in F. Gfl
.lust then a rocket zoomed from the earth,
Manned only by ltulssell Hines,
It came to rest in a field of green cheese,
The airport of the Moon so fine.
Russell hopped out and said, "Hello,
I'm from old F. G. you know."
Moon was as happy as he could be,
And he laughed loud and long in glee.
For here was someone to help l1im,
He could find what he wanted to know,
This good man from F. G. could tell him
VVhat had happened down below.
Russell was surprised when he looked down
And saw his chums of the Senior class.
But they both were glad to hear the news
And find what had come to pass.

And, who knows, perhaps the owner.
A famous clown is Melvin Ranes,
All other ones he puts to shame?

And there is nothing he canft do.
Virgil Redeitzke ifs a sailor now,
He said ftlhat Pekin was a wow-
He spent some time in Sing Sing, too,
But really he prefers the zoo.

Now this lad's name is Robert Ross.
A pair that you Will surely remember
Is Anvne Sdhendel and her little flivverg
Anne now drives a huge Roll's-Royce-
The stock market made her money twice.
Gaze upon yon picture of Phyllis Spelbrink
S'he's gone to Africa to find the mistsing link.
But I'm afraid she's lost for good,
Maybe they'll find her in the wood.
A champ we have is little Glenn,
He fights the toughest and biggest men.
There isn't a man he cannot lick
And he is kno-wn als "Dead Eye Dick."
In far off China lives a dame,
Peggy Tompkins is her name.
She sings and dances because she is free
And fishes for pearls out of the Ssea.
Do you recognize our little Helen?
She toe dances for Blaster lNIeClellen.
Why-she dances before the king-
And is as well known as Capone and his ring.
There is a man of some account.
Of money he has an amount.
Hunter iis this fellow's name,
And yet he is still the same.
Mary Moist is a petite purchaser,
She buys tons of svillks and fur,
Her salary does not exceed her fame,
For breaking heartlsi sfhe is to blame,
A barber who specializes on, sheep,
Oh, deah, this is too good to keep,
George Jeys is this person's name
And he thinks life rather tame.
Wilma Kappel is a graduate nurse,
When patientis have pains she does
A little arsenic she will give 'em
So you'll see 'them all in heaven.

"Hurry, Hurry, Hurry," the class play, was a decided milestone in the
three years of study and enjoyment of the students, Whose numbers make
up the junior class. The excellent junior-senior banquet was a direct re-
sult of the success of this production.,
Seventy-five students comprise the class and although it is a decrease
from the freshmen days, no class is more active in athletic and student body
The juniors had five men on the basketball team and eleven lettermen
which is an achievement of some account. ,

Initiatinag the largest class of freshmen in the annals of Forest Grove
high school gave the sophomores a rare treat. The initiation was held in
the gym. during an assembly and was very interesting if not instructive.
Refreshments were served after the initiation to all the students.
The sophomores were interested in all sports and took part in all the
ticket sales and other campaigns this year.
On dress up day the sophomores Won several individual prizes and
later put on an assembly that was not lacking in originality and humor.
Participating in the annual X. Y. Z. program was the closing activity

The laughing hit of the year-

The story is based on the will of an eccentric aunt. lt stipulates that
her pretty niece, Floy Hooker, must be affianced before she is twenty-one
and married to her fiance within a year, if she is to inherit her spinster rel-
Mr. Hooker fails to tell his daughter about the will, so that she may
make her choice without other consideration than that of true love. On the
evening which will see her reach twenty-one, Mr. Hooker returns home
with the news that he is about to fail in business. The only way out is for
Floy to become engaged that evening. The whole family go about the bus-
iness of trying to bring about her engagement. The younger brother, Stee-
phen, wishes her to become engaged to a college chum of his, Ted Stone,
who is the amusing character of the play, especially in his scene with Rita
the maid, and who later becomes quite interested in Letitia Brown, a
pretty friend of Floyis. Mr. and Mrs. Hooker wish it to be .lack Crandall,
a friend from Texas. To save her family from poverty Floy announces
her engagement to Aloysius Bartholomew. Slhe soon breaks this engage
ment, however, and just before midnight Stephen advances the clock and
leaves, returning with Mr. Crandall. Believing it to 'be too late for her to
receive the money, Floy becomes engaged to Jack for love alone, however,
not until after their engagement does the clock strike twelve.

ate higher ideals.
The big rally for the Hillsrboilo game amd the assembly was sponsored

enforced the rule, keeping rubbish from being thrown on the school g'r'ound's.
An initiatiom was held at the end of the first semester and the neoplhytes
provided much amusement for the rest of the students. After a week of
gruelling labor an assembly was put on by the new members, Such games
as "Are You There, Casey?" provided merriment for the days to come.

The Girl Reserve Club has had a very successful year and is very
proud of its large membership. Sixty-three is a comparaitively large mem-
bership for the club.
The meetings which were centered around the Girl Reserves code were
held on Tuesday during the "R" period.
Several girls attending the Sprfing Conference at Astoria gave very in--
teresting reports about the various phases of the meetings.
The Girl Reserves sold tickets for the play, "The Mystic Flower,"
given at the Lincoln high school auditorium in Portland. Twelve 'thousand
Girl Reserves of Oregon took part in this presentation. Another important
event was a week end party at Rock Creek, May second and third.

Things related to French life, their songs, amusements, how they live
and how they spend their time were the studies of the French Club this
This club is honorary and to be a member one must make a grade of
two or albove. Eighteen new members were taken in the second semester
Many reports and talks of interest were given in the meetings and
some very pertinent questions in regard to French life were studied.
One of the most unique programs of the year was the entertainment at
the French Club dinner which was held at the bakery January 15, 1931.
Several songs amid character sketches were given in French. Talks on the
French homes, custo-ms, French schools, and child life in France were en-
joyed by all.

The Pep Club is a comparatively new club at Forest Grove higl1 school
As it seemed necessary to have a group responsible for the interest in activ-
ities-such as football, 4base'ba.ll, basketball, et cetera-this club was or-
ganized the first of the year.
The purpose of the Pep Club is to aro-use and stimulate pep at all ne-
cessary times. However, most of its efforts were spent in arousing enthu-
siaslrn, which was :1 factor in the Homecoming game on November the
eleventh, with Beaverton.
Membership in tl1e club consists of three mernbers from each class and
also the class faculty advisors.
Bud Smith, Lloyd Abrams, and VValter Baldwin were the yell leaders
for the student body and were very good. They surely received a won-
derful response from the student body at all times.
Next year tl1e clulb should be a bigger and better organization because
of the success of its first year.

and the clirb included only ten students much competition was offered for

in a. three-Way match with Silverton and Corvallis, the team met defeat,
but made a creditable showing against these veteran teams. This match
was played in a sea of mud and the players experienced much difficulty
in maintaining a, stan-ce without slipping. Return matches with Wooodhurn

Enjoying the most successful season in many years, F. G. ended its
football season well at the top of the ladder, By winning five games, tying
three, and losing one, Forest Grove tied Hillsboro for second place in the
conference. VVhen the Thanksgiving day battle ended in a deadlock, F. G.
also tied with Hillsboro for the county champioinship.
Coach Watson, starting his second year at F. G., was handicapped by
the scarcity of lettermen reporting for practice, but because of a large
turnout, and with the help of Mr. Halvarson he built up the strongest
team F. G. has had for many years.
The Rotarians made it possible for the team to be well outfitted th-is
year by financing a dance and turning over the net proceeds to the foot-
ball fuenrd. Practically all new material was purchased. The team was
outfitted in gold jerseys with maroon numbers and gold head gear.
The season opened with a game with Vernonia. By flashing and un-
expected offensive power, F. G. scored three times in the first half and
once iinn the second 'half to win 'by the score of 25-0.
The maroon and gold again showed superiority as football players
when they defeated the strong Estacada team, October 3, by the score of
12-6. Forest Grove held the visiting eleven until the last few minutes of
play when Coach Watsdn sent in the reserves.
October 15 marked the first real test of the F. G. team, but they came
through with flying colors and in a hard fought battle held the strong
Milwaukie team to a 7-7 tie.
Tillamook came to Forest Grove on October 24, doped to swamp the
maroon and gold, but instead they went home on the short end of the score.
The F. G. team played heads up football and took advantages of the breaks.
The score was 13-6.
Showing a flash of real football, the Newberg squad held the unde-
feated F. G. team to a scoreless tie. F. G. was doped to win by a large
margin, but was not even a'ble to score.
On Armistice day Forest Grove held her homecoming. The bonfire was
built the day before the game and considerable pep was raised at the rally
that night. Beaverton defeated F. G. 12-0 after a hard fought game. It
was nip and tuck for both teams until the last quarter, when F. G. cracked
and Beaverton scored twice.
Two days later a tired F. G. team squeezed out a 7-0 victory from Ti-
gard on our own field.

the counties met at the district meet at McMinnville.
F. G. won the county championship by winning five out of six covnlfer-
ence games played. The only defeat was to Hillsboro with a 31-30 score.
At the district tournament at McMinnville, March 1-L, Forest Grove
entered the finals after a decisive victory over VVillamina. They met Tilla-
mook and were defeated 23-13 after playing a fine brand of basketball un-
til the last half.
Witli the close of basketball season. the team had won ten games and
lost flive. Only one game was lost by more than five points, which speaks
well for the team and the coach.

The track team, under the leadership of Coach Halvarson, enjoyed the
most successful season in many years. They defeated Hillsboro 81 to 41
and Milwaukie 68 to 53. The team met defeat in a meet with Roosevelt
high of Portland ainfd at the triangular meet between Beaverton, McMinn-
ville and Forest Grove.
A large part of the track team was under class material and they made
a fine record this year, so the next few years the standing will increase to
make an event better team.
The annual Northwest 'track meet will be held soon and Forest Grove
sfhorrld place high if they hold to the standards they have set in the four
other meets this year.

A play day a Pacific university in which several schools in the county
participated was the high light of the girls' basketball season. Banks, Gas-
ton, Beaverton, Hillsboro, and Forest Grove were represented. As Tigard,
the sixth team, was unable to come Forest Grove sent a first and second
team. Prior to the period of play the captains drew for opponents.
The F. G. first team played Beaverton and won by a score of 22 to 8.
Banks was on the short end of the score in the game with the second team
19 to 9.
The team played several practice games with Pacific teams and also
with a team of alumnae. The season was successful although not as much
time was available for practice as was really needed.

Virginia. Ralston Flora Barkley
Jane Giltner Lucille DeAvonshire
Mary Moist Ruth Buchanan
Betty Wise Virginia Fish
Margaret Stribich Betty Brown

how! The audience Knot 'to forget the remunerationj was pleased anrd
pleasing. Many people collapsed from laughter anfd remdined convulised

The three judges+Mrs. R. M. Adams, VVallace Buchaliran, and Orval
Hutchens, cast two votes forthe Sophomore class and one for the Juniors.

"That Qld Gang"
I was walking down the street at a spirightly gait, my little green, cap
perched nonchalantly on my head, as I am now a freshmaih at dear old
Mildew College, when a most amusing and familiar' sight metlmy eye, that
"old gang of mine," was spread across the sidewalk. "Ah, yes gindeed, there
are sidewalks in Galapanooya, my dear." The gang which, ot course, was
made of Melvin Ranes, Mildred Giltner. Duncan Macleod, Miildred Clark,
and Paul Mays who brought up the rear, while Shorty Baldwin was busily
pushing other pedestrians off the sidewalk. The gang was singing the
following ditty in a shrill, ringing voice:
"Oh, I'm a little devil,
A dirty little devil,
I leave a trail of blood where I tread-f
VVhere I tread.
I take a great delight
Inf getting ina fight-
And hitting little babies on the head,
Till they are dead.
Somehow I have gotten,
A rep for being rotten,
For I put poison in my mother"s shreddedxwheat.
Raw meat! Csniff, sniffj Raw meat!
Looking for the oinwes who were responsible for this blood-thirsty song
I saw Bud Smith and Glenn Sweeney leading them in this fa' ous song.
After a good deal of shouting and hiallooing I succeeded, in attracting
their attention. I always have thought the gang was a little peeved be-
cause I went to Mildew instead of Whoosis where the gang wemt, but I pre-
tend not to notice it. I suggested we go down to "Rons,', aslMr. LaMont
now ran the "Gedunk," the most popular collegiate restaurant in town.
This suggestion inet with a ring of applause and Shorty lBald,win said
we'll all pile in his car and go down. "Why walk when you can ride in
state?" Whereupon we all threw ourselves upon Shortyis nevsi Austin road-
ster and burnt up the road. i
VVe arrived at the "Gedunk" and entered, bowing. Mary Ellen, who
was a waitress there, came to take our orders. After we had all partaken
of nourishment the gang arose, slapped me on the back and walked out, bel-
lowing their thanks through the door. .lust before I began onlthe mountain
of dishes which was how I was to pay for the victuals, in. comes Walt Poor-
man. "Anything for a news story todayii' he asked., I lcioked at Bert
Marcum, wlho was the cook, and he looked at me. "Yes, a lovely murder,"
I answered. Bert grabbed the head and I grabbed the feetl "Ah," said
Puffy, "a rare 'bit of news. 'Famous hunter torn limb from limb by the
terrible Gedunk Gorillasf " ' i
