ADMINISTRATION v J. P. MCGLASSON, Principal 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. J. P. McGlasson. Page Seven Nicholson Parkinson Watson Hines JOHN M.

Page Sixteen Senior Prophecy 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. That famous lad with the mustache ls now in Dilley slinging halsh. Earl Chartrey you should recognize By the funny look in lis dark brown eyes. Virginia Fendall leads a dog's life, Her days are filled with Qonstant strife. She has a home for eats and dogs, But, absolutely, no dirty hogs! Page Seventeen A shy little lass called Jeanette QYOu know that she wouldn,t petlj Now has husbands fat least a dozenl And has money to burn and to bet. Now here ils something you'd never guess, But to you I will confess, 'I"ha't shy school girl called Helen Boyles At lion taming-toils and toils. Donald Stewart has a hardware store And maybe you think it isn't a bore, He gets up at six every day And goes to work anyway. Lloyd Woodhouse is a grocery clerk And, gracious, how that boy can work. He soon will be the manager- And, who knows, perhaps the owner. A famous clown is Melvin Ranes, All other ones he puts to shame? He is a conltortionist, too, 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. The chemistry shark of high school days Is famous for his taking ways, But hifs gain is now your lossg 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 2 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." Page Eighteen Page Nineteen 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. her worst 5 An "A" number one reporter And Oregon's famous daughter, Is Agnes Kelly, a writer jolly, Who tells of other peoples' folly, Make room for that famous star- She's known from near and also far, This popular lstar Whose name is Mart Is in the films getting a starit. Look out for Arthur Markee, aye! aye! He is a gunman bold they say. He has a palace fit for a king And Royalty he there will bring. Barkley with the first name Flora, Really isnyt a dumb Dora- And she's known the world around For her famous reducing compound. i Alice Miller is a bulsiness woman-'and howl She owns all the stocks in the National bank now, First as cashier, then vice-president, She now has the price for llepsodcnt. Donald Mundorff is the lad, KNOW don't think this very sadl He took a trip to Mars orie spring And there he stayed to be their king. One of the greatest educators of 1993 Is a small girl called Muriel, Now directress of a school For children who wonit mind the rule. Alfild Nordgrcn is a teathew- Thank goodness not another preacher- She teaches physicls at O. S. C. And soon will get a big degree. We understand a frirl naincd Helen Ross 8 l Is a great lawyer and her own boss, Sheis talked and talked in many a ease And wears menls' clothes instead of lace. Do you reinember' a maiden named Kay? She sure has made 'the gold dirt pay. But she was known to be erratic And now siheis living in an attic. l A millionaire trapeze artist is A chap whom we knew as a whiz, Dean Kiesel he is known by name And oin, the high bars heis found fame. The editor of a metropolitan paper-- Wllilfll one-we'll let you ask your neigh Is a lad with hair of coppery hue- Ronald LaMont, he has freckles, too. Lyle Lee, another with carroty curls, Can a discus Z1 quarter mile hurl, Naturally he is an Olympic champ And never bothers nor gives a rap. Iola Lyda is a dietitian And works in a faxnouis kitchen, She cooks the foods that you should eat And for her skill, she can't be beat. bor Page Twenty VVhen Rod graduated from high school To show l1e was not quite a fool, He took a course in salesmanship And now at rseflling he's a, pip.

Bernice Buliman, everyone knows, Is travelling tl1e world selling silk hose, But it is rumored, far and wide, That she is thinking of being a bride. That studiouls girl we knew as Ella Now l1as changed her name 'to Ste-lla. Sl1e is a beautiful parlor clerk And is sometimes a soda jerk. The church Was quiet and filled to the hrimg Everyone present was singing a hymn. It was no one hut Eunice Furman Who was waiting to give her famouks sermon. A popular mannequin is Madame Mildred, She sells gowns to the "four hundredf' At night she dances miles and miles And is always cheerful with ready smiles. Wilda Hoover, a student of psychology, Is now studying musicologyg She makes phonograph records 'hy the dozens, And sings over the radio with l1er cousins. A mislsionary we had in our elassa Hazel Howell was the charming lass'- She is now in Africa dark and wild Giving permanents to children mild. Graham BTCNQIIHCC has nothing on usg Why should. anyone make a fuss? Raymond Hudson is his proud successorg No doubt you'll like him very much better. . ,....,. .. l Page Twenty one Vernita Irrnler fthis is too sad to tellj Decided that she would dig a well. She dug and dug and is today Down in China far away. Susan is a paper flower' makerg She has risen from this to an undertaker, She sold her wares upon the streetg Many people came for this little treat. Sftop, look and listen-is that James? Why, he,s a boatman on the river Thames. He never does seem 'to 'tireg As well as rowing, he playrs a lyre. Paul is seen in yonder shop Making bottles and bottles of pop, He seems very happy with this, He's a kind boy We surely miss. Zimmerman has sailed the seas, He goes from port to port with tea. They say he is quite a seafaring' man, And has brought from China fan after fan. "Goodbye,,' said Russell, "I must be off. Itls late and lim due at home, But I'll come back and see you again Next time I chance to roam." "Well," said Moon, "you've taken me back To the good old days of yoreg If I doin"t get skinny come back again And tell me a Whole lot more." "Tlhey're a peppy bunch," thought Mr. Moon. And of course We agree with him, May the Senior class of '31 Tackle life with their presenlt vim! w Page Twenty-tivo senior Wan i WE the SENIOR cwlass of the Forest Grove High School, in the Year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-on-e, being in full possession and ownership of our numerous faculties, and being of sound mind and body, DO ORDAIN this will and tesltament, in which we bequeath, bestow and otherwise appropriate the following from among our many possessions to the classes and individuals als herein specified.

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 affairs. The juniors had five men on the basketball team and eleven lettermen which is an achievement of some account. , Page Twenty-seven l 'Thurston First Semester Gilbert Schultz..

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 of the year. The sophomore stunt for this program was selected by two out of three judges as the best. Page .Twenty-nine Fish First Semester Dorothy Fish ....

There are no dead bodies falling out of closets, no gorillas, bats, spiders, or other repulive things running around, but therefs- plenty of exciteineiit and strange things happen before your eyes. The play centers around the disappearance of "Gr'am's,' jewels and other strange happenings. "Gramp" and "Gram" provide a couple of hun- dred laughs and Kay Millis is the enterprising girl detective who helps solve the mystery. Art and Edith are emmeshed in the "tangled threads of mystery," as are the entire caslt-including Alice Borden, Jim Hayes, and Fred Alden, all friends of the family, who have a strange part in the plot. The Black Terror, himself, who causes all the trouble, is an elusive character. Mr's. Whitman is the daughter of Griarnp and Gram and is continually striving to keep peace between them.

HURRY! HURRYV' 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- ativels millions. 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.

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.

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.

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. OFFICERS President ......... ......... .... A n thony Kilburg Vice-President ...... ....

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. OFFICERS President ......... .......... .... B 1 ld Smith Vice-President ....,... ......

On April 25th, a four-man team defeated VVoodburn 8-41. On May 2, 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 and Silverton were played after this book went to press. A four man team which attended the state meet at Eugene, did very Well. The six man team consisted of Harold Abrams, Paul Vaananen, Paul Mays, James Yeofmans, Art Bennett and Bob Cody. . l OFFICERS N President .......... ......... .....

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. Page Fifty-six Two days later a tired F. G. team squeezed out a 7-0 victory from Ti- gard on our own field. The next game was played in a sea of mud at Dallas a N eek later Af- . i v . ter being held to one touchdown the first half, the F. G. machine started working and rolled up a score of 21-O. Every member of tihe maroon and gold squad making the trip played. giving day. The battle, which will not be forgotten soon by 1 he large crowd The last game of the season was played with Hillsboro on Thanks- 5 that attended the game, ended in a scoreless tie.

The Maroon and Gold drilled in teamwork and fair play won the county championship and finished second in the district. The basketball schedule this year was a county championship contest in each of the three counties which make up the district and the winners of 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.

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.

Page Sixty-four "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. m 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.
