The Record is Parker's own annual because all of us have done our bit to make it what it is. Whether one has sorted manuscript, taken snapshots, written an article, or just sub- scribed, the help is felt and is reflected within these covers. May it so as long as the Record exists.

COUGNARD STOESSER JUNE 22, 1867 AUGUST 4, 1929 ,g tj 1930 , LL J ju , , Z '1 L A A 1 P w 'V Ll ff 1' ers:-gw ' ' PARKER RECORD MADAME STOESSER Emma Aline Westerman Cougnard was born june twenty-second, 1867, in Lyons, France. Her father was a well known judge in Lyons. At the beginning of the Franco- Prussian war of 1870, her father moved the family to Geneva, Switzerland, for safety. He Went back and forth from Geneva to Lyons, all during the war. The family liked Geneva so much that they decided to make it their home. So they settled there. Emma Cougnard's mother died when she was still a young girl. She was brought up by her fatherls sister, who was well known in educational and literary circles. Emma Cougnard and her only brother had their early traini-ng in Geneva. Then she Went to school in Nottingham, England, then she worked at Cambridge, and then she worked with a relative, Gaston Paris, in Paris, France, and studied at the Sorbonne. While quite young she married Count Frederick Von Stoesser, who also lived in Geneva, Switzerland. He was a dashing young man in the diplomatic circles, and Madame Stoesser's life as a bride was most interesting because she entertained most unusual and distinguished people. She became a widow in 1898 and in 1900 decided to come to this country with her only child, a little girl who was then crippled. Her husband had lost almost all her money. It must have taken quite a deal of courage for an attractive young widow to come to a strange country to earn her living, a thing she had never done before. What money she had left she had sent to her brother to invest in Galveston, Texas, which was a booming city. She sailed from Bremen for Galveston the day the Galveston flood occurred, and everything she and her brother had had was lost. The ship she came on took thirty-three days to make the crossing. Her Welcome to America was not at all a cheerful one. All she saw, at first, was waste and desolation. The only thing she was equipped to do was to teach and she did not know how to go about getting a position. She knew no one in Galveston and there was nothing to do there. She remembered Mrs. Loring in Chicago whom she had met in Geneva. She decided to take the last money she had and try to find Mrs. Loring who she thought could tell her where she could find work. She found Mrs. Loring, who remembered her well and was delighted to have her in her school. Madame Stoesser had the gift of teaching. She loved it, and the children all loved her. She taught at the Loring School for over ten years. When a vacancy occurred on the staff of the Francis Parker School, Mrs. Loring, who was most u-nselfish, proposed Madame Stoesser's name to Miss Cooke. She felt that Madame Stoesser could do more there than at her small school. Madame Stoesser did not want to leave Mrs. Loring, but she insisted on Madame Stoesser's bettering her position. During the years Madame Stoesser taught she wrote several plays and stories which will be published soon. Until her last day she loved teaching and loved her children. Nothing was too much to do for them. The morning she went, she spoke of the children in this year's graduating class. She wanted to go back for them. Madame Stoesser understood and loved youth. She was always ready and anxious to take part in all school activities. Her spirit was always to help others. She passed on just as she wanted to, on last August fourth, 1929, on a sunny day, in Onekema, Michigan, where she is buried. She left behind many loving friends. All who knew her will long remember her genial and happy smile. Page Thirteen i 1 3 Y 1 .41 'f-1 1930 dl V PARKER RECORD FLORA J. COOKE Principal RAYMOND W.

A small boy in the first grade recently defined it as "something very goodf' The occasion was a birthday wishing party. Every member of the group had his lighted candle from which he blew his birthday wish to the child who was seven years old that day. The wishes came eagerly and fast,-one for a Pomeranian dog, another for an electric train, for a little baby brother, for a motor boat,-each wishing for his friend something which doubtless he himself most desired. Finally the turn came for a thoughtful eyed little boy to make his wish. "I hope," he said, "that Peter will grow up big and strong and always have the Parker Spirit." "What is that?" I asked. And he answered, "I don't know exactly what it is, but Mr. Wahlstrom said in Morning Exercise when we were working in the Christmas Toy Shop that we all ought to use the ParkerVSpirit, and I am sure it is something 'very good." And, "something very good" it is, if it is truly to represent the spirit of the man who made the Parker School possible. Francis W. Parker was a true pioneer who gave his whole life to a struggle to make education better for children. He said, "Nothing that is good is too good for a child, no work too great, no toil to arduous." He firmly believed that "every school ifn the land should be made a home and a heaven for chil- dren." He believed that no one can "give another education but that each must gain it through his own efforts." He wanted a school to be a place where the strengths, gifts and natural interests of every child could develop to their fullest measure. He wanted a school to be like a fine garden, a place rich and nourishing in which a child could live freely, a place which would stimulate him to work and play and grow. Out of my long experience with Colonel Parker, I should interpret the Parker Spirit as one which must continuously portray courage, strength and unselfishness. It must be at once fine and generous yet keenly critical and intelligently discriminating in all its larger aspects. Parker Spirit shows itself in athletics and sports because of the school's belief that every boy and girl needs an opportunity to play as well as to work. It puts itself squarely and loyally behind its teams to support them whether winning or losing-so long as the players give their best individual and cooperative effort to the game. But Parker Spirit does not function alone in sports, it permeates and inspires every phase of our living together. It demands at once thorough individual scholarship-the fullest measure of knowledge and skill, and it expects from each person, big and little, his most useful and loyal service to the best interest of the whole group. It does not recognize as its own the selfish grabber or shirker in a community. It claims gladly the potential artist, the lover of beauty, and attempts to help him find his own avenue for the expression of his ideas and dreams. The reach of the Parker Spirit extends far beyond the borders of the school itself, and not only helps those imbued with it to meet adequately the immediate prob- lems of the small school community, but it also equips them potentially, we hope, to cope with the difficult problems of the more complex adult world in which they must so soon participate. The fruitage of the Parker Spirit is something which grows and comes to perfection only through long years of practice. It is not made up alone of what Colonel Parker gave to it, but also of what has been .brought into the school life by fine teachers and students during the many years of its existence. Thus it happens that every member of the school at present is in some measure responsible for what this spirit is just as every graduate is its exponent Its quality must be judged not by what some of us wish it were but by what characterizes it in everyday practice If the school of 1930 31 is to be worthy of the spirit which Colonel Parker bequeathed to it it will not consist merely in glorifying a tradition but it will be exemplified in a type of living wholly good happy and useful Students possessing it will without any self Page Twenty 31930 , . . ' 3 1 9 - ' PARKER RECORD consciousness or self-righteousness try to live up to the school motto "Everything to help and nothing to hinderf' They will realize more and more the significance of the school's great word RESPONSIBILITY. They will value increasingly the principle of cooperation under which they have lived for many years. They may perhaps also carry with them into their homes and wider social groups Colonel Parker's guiding principle in life, his impelling belief that the best progress for the individual and for society comes forth under the motive of each habitually giving his best,-"Each for all and all for each." FLORA J. COOKE OUR ALUMNI ON THE STAGE Alumni Writeups of former years have dealt with certain classes, or a general survey of all classes, but this year we will limit ourselves to a few graduates of Parker who have made a name for themselves on the stage. There are thousands of actors and actresses, but there are few who ever attain fame. Success cannot be attributed to talent alone, but it must be backed up by hard work and years of study. Macauley Ross, whose stage name is Ian Keith, is well known both on the stage and screen. He began his dramatic career at Parker by admirably portraying Hamlet in the senior play. In this play he was supported by an excellent cast including Geneva Harrison, who has been very successful and is now with the Theatre Guild. just before one of the performances of "Hamlet," at school, Macauley was presented with a red carnation by Geneva. He was very proud of this gift and wore it very conspicuously. in the beginning of the play. The red certainly brightened up the sombreness of Macauley's costume, but evidently Mr. Merrill didn't appreciate this, for by the next entrance the carnation had disappeared. After Hnishing school Macauley studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. In order to gain experience and a practical knowledge of plays he went on an extensive road tour with a stock company. He acted in Shakespearian plays and was given his big chance when he was given the part of Orlando in "As You Like It,', substituting for an actor who was indisposed. I-Ie re- ceived notice of this part just a few days before he was to perform, but in a very short time he had worked up the part and achieved great success. Because of his excellent acting, he played with John Barrymore in "Laugh, Clown, Laugh,', which was pro- duced by David Belasco. He did very well in this part and was offered a long contract by Belasco. Instead, Macauley entered the movim where he has become well known. He has a very fine speaking voice and we are confident that he will be very successful in the talking pictures. Geneva Harrison, Macauleyls partner in the plays at Parker, who has been very successful playing with the Theatre Guild, studied in New York under the direction of Walter Hampton. For a few seasons she played small parts and walk-ons and then she attracted the attention of the Guild. For quite a while she played minor roles, but just this year she was given an important role playing with Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontaine in "Caprice," in a part which she played very capably. Geneva-also is very much interested in literature and writes well herself. Poetry interests her especially and she has written some very fine examples. With the class of 191 3 graduated Albert Carroll, who made a wonderful success of the senior play, "The Servant in the House? Immediately after graduating Albert joined the Ben Greet players with whom he played Shakespearian and old English comedies At first he had very small parts but his excellent acting soon gained him more responsible roles He stayed with this company five years and then joined the Page Twenty one l, r, l 4 -v v S -fg 930 Ji ff g - gtg i,,i 1e pri:-nl-giiaggi. ,W , W ,'...5.,,..,f., .,. PARKER RECORD Neighborhood Playhouse Where he was actor, dancer, writer, and impersonator. Later he joined the "Grand Street Follies," playing the lead, and made this play a great success. Albert is especially well known for his impersonations and pantomimes. Doris Humphrey played the feminine lead opposite Albert in "The Servant in the House." Doris, although she was very talented as an actress, decided to make dancing her career. Having Hnished her studies she conducted dancing classes at Oak Park for Eve years. Later she joined Ruth St. Denis and was leading solo dancer for several years. Doris has now founded her own school in New York and is achieving con- siderable success. Christina Affeld while at Parker produced and acted in many plays for the Forum and other school activities. After graduating she went to Wiscmsin University, but after three years left college to go on the stage. Her first engagement was with Sothern and Marlowe. For one year her part consisted of walk-ons, small dances, and under- studying. An amusing story is told which shows Christina's determination and love of the artistic. While she was with Sothern and Marlowe one of the leading men wore a hat which Christina regarded as atrocious. She braced herself and determined to tell the actor and see if he could not see her point. He was unmoved by her arguments and the hat continued to be used. One day the hat was missing, and the actor had to wear the only one he could find, which Christina had carefully placed there. After Sothern and Marlowe broke up she joined a Shakespearian company which made a tour of the South. She played two small parts and was understudy. Upon her return she became leading lady in "Laugh, Clown, Laugh," in which Barrymore played. She acted this role very well. After a short time she went on a vaudeville tour of Keith's where she was very successful. Christina married Dr. Percy Davidson and is now producing plays at Rad- cliife. She always loved work and if there was time between engagements would take a job of waitress or anything, just to be busy. There are also many other Parkerites who have chosen the stage for their career and who have met with success. It is really remarkable that so many graduates of this small school have really become well known actors. It can be truly said of Parker graduates on the stage, as in every other profession, that they are leaders in achievement.

A great number of the Alumni were present at the annual dinner and were elaborately entertained by modernistic clog dances and monologues by the Alumni and members of the Senior Class, and friendly and instructive speeches from the Faculty. The greater activity of the Association resulted in the sending of a questionnaire to three hundred and forty-four of the Alumni in which their opinion was requested concerning their attitude toward the Parker School training. The results of this ques- tionnaire can be considered very gratifying to the school as a whole. By far the great majority of those answering prefer Parker training for their children. A few prefer it only for the grade school and only a very small number do not want it. The greater number stressed the fact that the advantages of Parker training life in its emphasis upon individuality, upon the close contact of the individual student with a faculty of high quality, in the Parker stimulus to intellectual curiosity, in the Parker tradition with its closely knit social life, and in the value of morning exercises for developing community spirit and contacts with many and varied interests. The questionnaire showed that the bulk of Alumni attend the three nearest univer- sities but a considerable number have attended easter-n schools and colleges. In regard to Parker's training for college, the great majority felt it adequate. In their college life, the Alumni showed by their lengthy list of college honors secured, that the school clearly produces leaders. They showed also in their interests pursued, that the schoolis cultural development very strongly affected their lives, and the cultural values established at Parker continued to influence them. Certain important suggestions and criticisms were made by a minority of the Alumni regardi-ng what they consider a lack of discipline in the school particularly in the high school which some felt affected their college preparation These suggestions Paga Tzunlg thru T1 9 3 0 , Q , . PARKER RECORD ,ji 'an were based upon a feeling of a lack in mental discipline in teaching how to study and in the training of pupils to distinguish essentials. The questionnaire showed that a great majority of the Parker Alumni take up professional careers after their graduation. The answers to the questionnaire fully substantiate che basic principles underlying the school regarding an individualistic training of a high cultural order, and heartily endorse its traditions. The results of this questionnaire should be of interest to every present pupil of Parker. The Alumni Association hopes that through the continued support of each graduating class, it may become a closer influence in the development of the school. It heartily congratulates the present graduating class upon the opportunities it has had from attendance in the school and hopes that throughout a worthy life the members of the class will continue to hold the school in high regard and friendship. ALLAN HEALY, Pres. THE PARENTS ASSOCIATION In days gone by, when school meant merely a place where children were kept occupied and out of mischief, the teacher would see signatures on the back of the children's report cards every month and thus would be acquainted with the fact that her pupils really had parents. Times have changed. Today every progressive school has its Parents Association established for the purpose of fostering close contact between faculty and parents. Science has taught us that modern education requires the utmost cooperation between those who have the child during the school hours and those who look after his welfare at home. The natural result is beneficial to teachers and parents as well as to the children. Teachers possessing greater knowledge of the home environment of their pupils, can more efficiently perform the diflicult task with which they are confronted, while parents acquainted with the problem the child presents at school can better do their job of parenthood Parker, as usual, has been one of the leaders in promoting the progressive idea of cooperation between school and home and for many years has had an actively functioning Parents Association. For the year just about to close, the Parents Association held an interesting series of meetings: On November 19, 1929, Dr. Solomon B. Freehof gave an address on "Adolescence, the Age of Crisis," which was of great benefit to all of the large audience that heard him. This was followed by a reception to the new parents. As usual, the December meeting was Toy Shop Night, with the largest turnout of carpenters, dress makers, painters, etc., that the school has ever had. This unique event of Parker's affords a great deal of pleasure to the hard-working parents. At the January meeting Dr. Charles G. Obermeyer gave an intellectual talk entitled "The Coming Reconstruc tion of Education." Many of the parents attended the intensely interesting lecture by David Seabury given February 6 before the faculty on the subject of "Everyday Mental Hygiene," and at the regular February meeting, Mrs. Beatrice Ensor, founder of the New Educational Fellowship, spoke on "The Focal Points of the New Education The grade meetings of the year have been more carefully planned and have mark edly improved in value to the mothers The most significant new feature of the Parents Association this year has been the formation of a Study Group to consider seriously the special problems of parents. Six meetings have been scheduled for the spring term, with people of prominence to lead the discussions. In conclusion, I would call attention to the fact that this Association exists for all of the parents, and it is felt that an active participation in the activities will react bene ficially. Our future plans are ambitious ones, requiring the cooperation of all Page Twenty- four P- -I 1441- 1930 7 3 9 il . EDGAR N. GREENEBAUM, Pres. Lf ,L 9 L V A A I , . Y lg.

Lou has more honest-to-goodness com- mon sense and brains than any other girl in the senior class, and when you will be fooling around, Lou is doing tomorrow's home work. She is quiet. She tends to her own affairs and talks but little. She knows what's her business and what's yours, and acts accordingly. She never has excuses for she needs none. Hard-working, accu- rate, studlous, and self-contained, her prac- tical mind and firm good nature will take her far. She'll need no one pushing from behind. JEANNE BAUMGARTL Entered in Eleventh Grade Goucber Jean didn't arrive until the Eleventh Grade, but she will leave her mark indelibly stamped on our minds. Not very much gets by Jean. She can understand just what you think is pretty well hidden. Not only that but no matter what you want done Jean will do it for you if it lies within her power. Her reputation for generosity and a good nature is not limited to the school alone. The whole city must know it, for she was elected secretary of the Junior Red Cross of Chi- cago. We feel sure that Goucher will be as proud of her as we have been. VIRGINIA BEARD Entered in Nintb Grade Chicago Teachers College To criticism or disapproval Virginia turns her open, frank countenance and her strong- est efforts at improvement or the mending of her ways. She always tries to help you out if you need anything which she can do or give. In school she has thrown herself whole-heartedly into athletics. Outside of school she leads a band of girl SCOutS and teaches in Sunday School. One can scarcely think of her without memories of candor and generosity. 4 -R 1-I lose ' ' 1 PARKER RECORD RICHARD BETHGE Entered in Ninth Grade Princeton Dick is our author, writer of sophisticat- ed, impossible, but nevertheless popular anec- dotes about the upper strata of societyg our colorful athlete, not always entering into things with spirit, but nevertheless full of nerve and fire. Our celebrated scholar pulls down high marks with seeming lack of effort but nevertheless is capable of feverish out- bursts of speedy work, taxing his intelligence and versatility to the utmost. He is notably the most talked-about "man in the class," although he does a great deal of the talking. A finished musician. A self-educated, dar- ing radical who changes from side to side without scruple. Dick is much criticized, but always in the public eye.

Al.1 PARKER RECORD ALFRED FISCHER Entered in Kindergarten Wisconsin Alfred is one of the most truly cultured members of our class. Moreover, he is a good leader, a responsible manager, and an intellectual speaker. He had a chance to make use of these talents in his capacity as president of the Forum. No one could have made a better job of it than Al. His aim was to make every Forum presentation as 'nearly perfect as possible. And he more than realized the expectations of the most optimistic. Alfred was also on the Extem- poraneous Speaking team and was one of its best speakers. His talks were always inter- esting and revealed his wise range of infor- mation in almost every field. ELIZABETH FOSTER Entered in Kindergarten Gouclaer Lizzie is our artist. Remember in Eighth Grade the bold knights and fair ladies she used to draw for us? Liz is always ready to laugh and her High C giggle is quite con- tagious. Lizzie has a will and when it's set on something there's no breaking it. Many's the time in a hockey or basketball game, when Lizzie's team was losing or the score was tied, she made up her mind to win, and we did. And she's got heaps of energy, too, and whenever you want some of it, you're sure to get it and plenty of it, because when Lizzie helps you, you know then what help really means. We,ll never forget you, Liz. JOHN FRANKEL Entered in First Grade Chicago Through the twelve years that Johnny has attended Parker he has shown remark- able mental capacity. True, he's a slow, methodical thinker, but he produces the re- sults. He's 'not so 'slow on the gym floor and there's as much strength in Johnny's right arm as there is in his steadfast de- pendability, though not more. Aviation and medicine interest him. Ha! A flying doctor. He's a level-headed fellow with a jovial grin. He once had soft black hair, but Johnny is sure that the up-and-coming curls are not "motivated" by mental kinks. We're sure of that too, Johnny. - - fI 1L Page Twenty-nine Q 'J-Y ' ,Arie 0 L., 11 i',' ,F-i 1 I f v. aging l Page Thirty 11 .' .L PARKER RECORD ARTHUR GALT Entered in Ninth Grade Williams Art's a scrapper. Do we need to say any- thing more? Well, all right, he's one of the best and most efficient of all the presidents of Student Government of Francis Parker. Isn't that enough? If you insist, we have only to say that he was quarterback and captain of our football, or that he was a mainstay of the lightweight basketball team in the r6le of a fighting guard. More? Art's a leader. It takes him pretty long to get somewhere, but when he gets there he's at the top of the heap. His aggressiveness is well known-he's small, but mighty. What he begins, he ends. If you should take a vote of the school and the faculty, you'd get the finishing touch-he's popular. VIRGINIA GAZLAY Entered in Eighth Grade Goucher Teeny, and so she is, but did you ever see or know of anyone so small yet possessing so big a brain, which she uses, too. But she is not just studious, for besides excelling in academics she shows skill in athletics. Who will ever forget her amusing and re- alistic portrayal of the impertinent maid in the senior play? She is fun-loving, good at advice, and quite affable when you get to know her. Teeny ranks as one of the best dancers in the class. Goucher is lucky to get our tiny blonde. LESTER GODDARD Entered in Twelfth Grade Yale Bus came to us in the senior year under his brother's flying banner, but he made his way to a high place in the minds of his contemporaries, all on his own. He's a quiet, reserved fellow, forceful and genial, with a shock of brown hair and an enigmatic smile. As the class Treasurer and as Assistant Judge he fulfilled all requirements. He's a slight scrap of a boy yet he's an agile basketball "hero" and nimble of mind. He was with us only a short time, but we'll remember him for long. , ' ,,.,,: 930 1 ' ' ,,....,.f 1-,.. . f1lnul41pu-1.-.-- .e--.5 f STERLING GODDARD Entered in Eleventh Grade Yale Ster arrived as a new member of our class in the Junior year and rose to the presidency of the Senior Class. Ster plays football plus. If he were only bigger, we should watch hispcollege football career in the newspapers. He's a good egg with every- body. He fits with the bunch wherever he is, and that is certainly a commendable characteristic. It has to be admitted that some of his puns would melt the frosting off a cake, but counting the worst of them, we'll still accept Ster, You have our best 3 Ster, and may you make Yale "summa cum laude." SHIRLEY GREENE Eniered in Ninth Grade Chicago Within the last three years Shirley has done a good deal to make herself a cog in the machinery of the present Senior Class. She has been most useful in Hultimatelyi' producing the dance performances for the Forum. Her voice has been heard on more than one topic for the Extemporaneous Speaking group. In class she has not been silent either. We hope that she may con- tinue to voice her opinions because we like it, Shirley. SUZANNE HARTMAN Entered in Fourth Grade Pine Manor In fourth grade Susie was a tow-headed baby. Now Sue's a blond lady. There is sophistication, poise, and refinement sur- rounding her, all of which go to hide a sweet, thoughtful, affectionate girl. She has a practical streak in her make-up which is hardly in keeping with the illusions held about Sue. She is sensitive and sensible, lov- ing and lovable. S-he has a little temper. It's nice to make up with her because she is so contrite, We hope she,s always around for a reconciliation.

He has somewhat of a poetic nature. In his quiet, sensitive way he is an admirer of fine and artistic things. He is well-versed in French and Spanish and is quite a musi- cian. Jack is very well-read, having dipped into most every type of literature. He is a capable student, a hard-working Forum ac- tor and Business Manager of the Record. And the girls say he is a wonderful dancer! Jack's constant willingness to work, his op- timistic views and his Congeniality have made him popular throughout the school. HESTER HEMPSTEAD Entered in First Grade Chicago When we think back to the dances on Field Day, whether they were with scraps of colored chiffon or the gay ribbons of the May pole, one stands out distinctly and that is Hester,s. Tall, dignified, she is de- cidedly the beauty of the class and made our most graceful and stately May Queen. At the Christmas service she awed us all with her lovely voice. Most ably she leads the Glee Club to unusual heights. Whether she goes on dancing or singing she surely will carve out a splendid career. BETTY HENIUS Entered in Eighth Grade Northwestern Betty can always find a place for you in her bright blue Chrysler. She is one of the cute, petite members of the class, and is always cheerful and gay. Imagine anyone with all these charms, who also gets good marks. Moreover Betty showed us how much could be made of a part in her por- trayal of Clara in "TrelaWney of the 'Wells.' " Betty is, without doubt, one of the sweetest and best-liked people in our class. 11930 1i PARKER RECORD RAYMOND IMMERWAHR Entered in Ninth Grade Swarthmore Raymond is a hard worker and a clear thinker. These attributes alone would have won for him the admiration of the whole class. In his junior year he won a prize book for his high academic standing. Besides, he is an excellent speaker, and head of the de- bating group of the Forum. In spite of all these activities "Immy" has time for a good joke or a poor pun always at the proper mo- ment. If Raymond applies himself outside of Parker as he has done here, he can not help but be a great success. WILLARD JAQUES Entered in First Grade Amherst Having been with us since the first grade Willard, of course, we know well, so well that some of us take him for granted. He's genuinely competent. His work may be seen in Student Government activities, in basket- ball, in tennis, and on the Record. His con- tributions to The Question Mark possess real literary quality. In "Nerves," his portrayal of the hero was excellent. In general, he knows his own ability and doesn't hesitate to use it where it is needed. We hope that his talents may always be there when needed. ARTHUR KELLER Entered in Tenth Grade Wisconsin Art is always ready with the proper an- swer to any question you may ask, though it is seldom in a serious vein. Art could find a joke in a pair of crutches, and make you laugh at it, too. He does settle down every now and then, and when he does the results are always a bit better than those of any- one else. He always tries. He may not al- ways succeed but he doesn't growl about it. Art plays the flute in the orchestra with great success. He will undoubtedly add to Parker's reputation when he reaches college. li-.it '- c - 12- 1930 l -"'-'-- PARKER RECORD ,E Page Thzrty four 'ww JOSEPH KEPECS Eniered m Seventh Grade Wrseonszn Experzmental College If 1n the course of your knowledge seek mg wanderlngs through the school bulldmg you become suddenly aware of some very radxcal and extreme opmxons bemg expound ed by a deep resonant bass vo1ce sprmgmg from the depths of a tall dark brush topped figure you may rest assured that that per son IS none other than Joseph Kepecs He wlll on any day at any hour mmute or second for any grven conslderatlon cham p1on a reputable cause He has through constant labor and practxce on the Speak xng Team acqulred the power of belng able to swmg h1s audlence wlth an adro1tness whlch has placed hlm above the rest of h1s teammates ISABEL KRULEWICH Entered zn Ninth Grade When a faculty member proposes a top1c upon whlch most tongues are sxlent Isabel can be counted upon to ar1se and become CXPICSSIVS When you hear a loud and famxl rar semor vo1ce IH a corrldor three chances out of five assxgn the vo1ce to Isabel But when she IS quxet for any length of tlme clear thoughts and fine feelmgs emerge and can be glad She has pubhshed good poems 1n the uestlon Mark as well as belng an excellent l1terary cha1rman of the Forum She has a generous well lntentloned frxend hness whlch wms her our regard EDNA KRUMHOLZ Entered an Nmtb Grade Clazcago Edna 1S a qulet reserved person She goes about her work whole heartedly not saylng much about It One would hardly suspect that Edna had such strongly rooted convnc txons about thxs and that but she has They crop out once xn a whlle m Englxsh class She IS a frxendly sort of person and welcomes kmdhness even as she gives xt We would lxke to be Ednas beneficlarxes for a good long t1me mstead of some unworthy base ball hero 1930 3 I - - , , , . . . s s ' , - I 5 , , - s s ' ' s 7 5 5 . . . , , when they get 1nto wrltten expressxon, we J s -. . . - , . , .

His calm, deliberate manner of speaking and his excellent judgment'help him to defend his carefully thought out ideas from the erratic judgment of some of his classmates. These talents were a great asset to' him in his successful term as Judge. He also held positions as football and basket- ball managers, this year, and was head of the revamped athletic committee. He ar- ranged games and then brought the crowds to see them. Jim's ability to tackle most any kind of job, and do it just a bit better than anyone else, will doubtless bring him great success in college. IRMA LYON Entered in Ninth Grade Chicago "Irma, will you play for the Operetta?" "Irma, please play this accompaniment." "Irma, play for us, will you?U These are the demands that come to the pianist of the Senior Class, and Irma always finds the time somewhere. She has a fun-loving nature and a contagious smile that are quite irresistible to those who come in very close contact with her. She puts most of her energy into music, and who knows, maybe some day she will make us doubly proud we were in her class. Besides her music Irma is very capable in many other Ways such as being an accomplished tap-dancer. In Athletics she got in and fought when we needed her on our teams. We congratulate her on the success she is sure to gain. MARGARET MAYER Entered in Eleventh Grade Wisconsin A keen sense of humor, a real desire to help people, an appreciation of friendship, and an openness that when occasion de- mands borders on brutal frankness, are the gifts that have endeared Marg to us during the two short years we have known her. Marg's never-failing good nature and abil- ity to see the ridiculous in any situation have relieved the tension in many circumstances. Popular with the faculty and her classmates alike, we often find in Marg an underlying seriousness and earnestness in doing "big- ger and better thingsf' Page Thirty fi 1 1- , 1 ' st- woo -135, -5 L fi i gQk- ,4- PARKER RJECORD K Page Thirty-six - J, v , Y BERNARD MESSINGER Entered in Kindergarten Wisconsin Experimental College Bernard is probably the most silent boy in the Senior Class. VHowever, he is usually too. busy planning and executing his plans to spend the time in noisy conversation. In the science and handwork departments, he is generally to be found, for in them he is at his best. He is always well-versed ,as to the latest scientific discoveries, and can accu- rately tell you about them. In the Forum as head of the Science group, he brought before the High School many scientific facts, always well illustrated by experiments and pictures. He is also an author and play- wright of note. Credit goes to Bernard for the completion of more projects than any other member of the senior class. MARION MOSES Entered in Ninth Grade Chicago Marion has gone through these years with a commendable ease that comes only of per- fect poise and a well-balanced personality. There has been no disturbing influence, nor have we been unaware of Marion's equani- mous career. A happy medium has been achieved, and one that leaves its impressg yet one is not conscious of any sacrifice of good-fellowship or any false haughtiness. One can say that Marion attracts the respect and compels the admiration of her fellows, and that she will not be forgotten soon, if ever. Can one person say more of another? BERNARD NACHMAN Entered in First Grade Illinois Billee, for no one ever calls him by his real first name, is one of the "old guard" of the class. He has never gone to any school other than Parker. He has taken part in many school and class activities. Last year he was class president and the first part of this year he was editor of the Weekly nor would it be stretching it a point to say that he improved the Weekly as much as any editor in recent years. These are only examples of what Billee has done at Parker. In everything in which he has participated his practical common sense and sober, steady leadership has shown itself to great advan- tage. r 4,15 1930. v-' F 1, g,..,....,,.l.,-1-...4-NR..-1 ,11 MARIE NELSON Entered in Twelfth Grade Chicago Marie didn't come to Parker, until this year but she has made many friends here who recognize her true worth. She first showed us her talents in the second senior play, in which her acting was admirable. She is an artist, too, everyone has seen her sketches of the members of the Senior Class. Whether she decides to continue her draw- ing or enter some other Held, we feel sure that she will find success. JOSEPHINE PRUYN Entered in Kindergarten H. Sophie Newcomb College, Tulane Jo has a rather quiet and innocent man- ner but underneath it she is full of the very dickens itself and this is always popping out. If you hear a series of chuckles and a few peals of genuine laughter, and maybe the noise of something falling, issuing from somewhere, you know Jo's up to it again, probably kidding someone and getting real amusement out of it. But Jo is accomplished along other lines too. She has very enviable talent in art which she intends to develop when she leaves Parker. Although Jo has usually a quiet exterior, the force of char- acter in her unassuming conscientiousness and perseverance has been felt ever since Jo was the little dark-eyed, curly-headed girl in the grades. JOHN REDMOND Entered in Seventh Grade Hohart One never has a dull moment with John. One might say that he is generally a con- servative and a great believer in systems, but he can be depended upon to crop out with ideas that are as new as the morning sun. If one ever drove in a car with John, one would get a summary of his character in a few minutes. There is no hesitation when a chance is to be taken, nor is there any chance for the other fellow if he doesn't give john a break. Thatls the way with john in a great many things. His make-up is as com- plex at some times as it is simple at others. There is a generous sense of humor present in that make up 11930 PARKER RECORD 1-. l S Page Thlrly seven ---------- PARKER Rimconn E W Page Tbfrly-eight MEYER RESNIKOFF Entered in Eleventh Grade Michigan In spite of Meyer's late entry he has be- come a permanent Hxture of the class. He is an accomplished musician, playing the viola in the school orchestra. He is a pretty deep thinker, too. Lots of questions that surprised his classmates came from Meyer in the Chemistry and Physics classes. He never says anything until he feels absolutely sure of himself. The fact that he played on the football team this year shows his versatility. We are sure he will gather a great many more friends at Michigan. KATHRYN RISHER Enlered in Eighth Grade N ortbwestern This bright-eyed girl came along in eighth grade and won us immediately with her viv- acity and cleverness. She has shown her marked ability as a leader in her position as president of the Friendly Relations Club. It's always a treat to get a lift in Kathryn's Pontiac. She's a good little athlete and a fine student, too. We are sure Kathryn will go far in her career, Whatever it may be, as all do who have such definite opinions and plans for their future. ROSLYN ROBINEAU Entered in Ninth Grade . Rockford Ros is Parker's Sarah Bernhardt or Ethel Barrymore. Her portrayal of Mrs. O'Flarity in ShaW's play was humorous and convinc- ing. Aside from having assumed a foreign twist to her tongue Ros affected a pursy appearance which was mirth-provoking. Her talents have been heard on various topics for the Extemporaneous Speaking group and not seldom in the senior room in Student Activities period. We think that Ros will talk her way into the hearts of many in the years to come. -I 11930 if ',., ...i-i 3 , i1gi PARKER RECORD HELEN ROEHLING Entered in Kindergarten Beloit Although I3 is supposedly an unlucky number it has proved lucky to Parker, for Helen has been here just that many years. Her versatility-for Helen plays the piano as no one else can, and her generosity-for she is always ready to help a friend, help to make her likeable character. Her leader- ship is well shown in her offices as secretary- treasurer of our branch of Friendly Rela- tions, and as vice-president of the Forum. Her capabilities in athletics augment her long list of attributes. Whatever college Helen attends we can trust her to give "everything to help and nothing to hinder." JOSEPH ROS-ENSTEIN Entered in Eleventh Gfade Joe is the musician of the class. He has been concert-master and first violinist of the school orchestra for three years. It will be very diiiicult to find as fine a violinist and concert-master as joe. He has already been a soloist with prominent Chicago orchestras, and no Parkerite doubts that Joe will some day be prominent in the musical world. But Joe is by no means one-sided. He is keenly interested in all intellectual subjects, and although his music has required too much time to permit of his participation in non- academic activities, he has shown an unusual ability in public speaking and has read widely. HOWARD ROSENTHAL Entered in Ninth Grade Southern California Howard is six feet three inches of fun. He is known for his abilities especially in drawing. His cartoons on everyone's looks as well as those in the Record have been a source of amusement. If you ever want to know what the best-dressed man will wear next year, go to Howard. Because of sick- ness he could not come out for basketball, but he always has a list of home-runs after his baseball score. Howard played the part of shy Captain De Foenix with exceptional ability and ease. Looking through any of the Question Marks you will always find stories or essays of Howard's. ev 4- v g gg-t i' 1930 f9 Pug Thirty mne - - I .--t I L. IPA 1 . 2. .V w 11, ti.

She contributes a welcome quiet- ness hereabouts, is loyal in friendship, and is gifted with potentialities. We shall wait, with optimistic conviction, to see her acting in her senior play, and after her specialized training to watch her rise in her chosen career. ELEANOR WAHLSTROM Entered in Kindergarten Ellyis a good sport, first of all, and sec- ondly, she's generous. We missed her a lot when she went to California last year, and we certainly welcomed her return. Elly's skill in athletics is known all over Parker. Her irrepressible laugh and "rosy" cheeks keep us all in a good humor and help to make us choose Elly as about the most typi- cally Parker girl we have. She is a good student and has fine reasoning power, but we wish she had used them both a little more abundantly and diligently. Elly has held about all the most important athletic omces a girl could hold and is also a member of the Record staff. Here's a big supply of good luck for you, Elly, though we don't believe you'll need it. ROBERTA WIGHTMAN Entered in Fifth Grade Middlebury Her sincere and enduring friendship, her complete coiiperation in all worth-while projects, her ediciency in practically all fields of endeavor, her loyalty and sympa- thetic understanding of human nature, her ine sportsmanship, and her impartial and unbiased opinions, are a few of the qualities which have made Ro one of the most re- spected and best-liked members of our Sen- ior Class. All this is well illustrated by her able leadership in the G.A.A. and as Editor of the Record. If in future years, Ro con- tinues to make use of her talents as admir- ably as she did while at Parker, a successful and happy life is assured for her. 11930 -1- PARKER RECORD ........i.i......- SECOND CI-IILDHOODS The bell rang and the teacher called for order. "You will all go to your seats please?" There was a general shuffling and muffled whispering as some went to their seats. Mr. Immerwahr led the more timid to the places and helped others arrange their aprons tidily about their persons. I was a literary fanatic and, desiring to see just how the minds of those in this new type school were developed, I was the visitor of the day who was causing so much whispering and giggling. The students turned and surreptitiously ogled me, and I returned their stares in a friendly manner. There in a corner Miss Daseh, Miss Wightman, Miss Wahlstrom and Miss Beard were gleefully laughing at me. In the immense and completely equipped sand-box Billee Naehman was constructing a printing press. Mr. Messinger, Mr. Kepecs, Mr. Resnikoj, and Mr. Eekstorrn were assisting him, Paul playfully pouring the sand down the backs of the others from time to time and laughing boisterously over each puckered face. In the center of the room, within a large pen, Kathryn Risher, Miss Henius, Miss Hempstead, Miss Foster, and Miss Nelson were building blocks. "There's one in every group." Here Miss Risher was always asking questions, and it was Miss Henius who said in response, "Let's play." john Redmond, Mr. Bridges, the two tall, slender ones, stood in one corner playing with the drinking fountain. First one would squirt the other, then vice versa. At the blackboard Mr. Rosenthal was drawing with a shaky hand queer figures with colored chalks. Miss Moses and Miss Mayer, under the tutelage of Miss Bailey, the assistant teacher, were reciting cute little poems from Maiden's Meditations. Miss Roehling and Miss Gazlay were absent. Their sons-in-law had taken them on a trip to the Dunes. Mr. Frankel was very quiet. His attention was rooted to the test-tubes of colored water he had been playing with. Mr. Keller and Mr. Fischer came tumbling in late. Their excuse was that the grandchildren's chauffeur had to put on a new tire. Miss Cohn, after having quarreled with Mr. Frankel, was sitting at her table doing nothing. Miss Greene and Mr. Havemeyer were dancing to "Ring Around a Rosie" about Howard, trying hard to distract his attention from the blackboard. Miss Schwartz was sprinkling the plants in the window boxes at Mr. Immer'u1ahr's request. She spilled occasionally because she was talking and giggling with Miss Diamond. From the cloak-room came the bleatings of a harmonica. Mr. Rosenstein came forth vigorously pufling, ably accompanied by Miss Lyon, who was banging on a toy drum. just outside Mr. L. Goddard was endeavoring to keep in hand an ambitious bunch. Mr. Galt insisted on climbing trees. Mr. Iaques and Mr. S. Goddard were playing tag to see who could keep the golf ball they had found, and Mr. Lynch was hiding the disputed ball behind a lilac bush. Miss Hartman, so the teacher said, was absent because her daughter-in-law was buying her her summer clothes. Miss Suzanne had to have a fitting. Miss Pruyn was cutting paper dolls with Miss Rohineau and Miss Krulewieh while Miss Krumholz was sitting on the floor cradling a dirty puppy that had strayed into the room. There, Richard, that is my impression of the National Kindergarten. Miss Bailey said that its principle is to provide wholesome and well-directed play for those individuals in that state of second childhood. Yes, you can sign my name to this article. For the Tribune, isn't it? The whole class was graduated from Parker in 1930. Yes, I used the ladies' maiden names for convenience' sake. Now I would like to know if there is a second adolescence.

We sez, sez we, "Out with the ould an' in with the new." We threw a strut without even a stunt and it went over big. We got a lot of people in the first dancing class and many of us are members of the Friendly Relations Club so you see we are great in social woiks. In athletics we done noble. We nearly all went to the park for hocky and we gave the other high school basket ball team hart failure and one good run for their money. Our baseball skill is not to be sneered at neither. We have some hard hitting fast runnin' and curve pitchin, players. As far as studies go-Oh well, we won't go into that. We couldn't be bothered. However we have a few like jane Bethge and such who hold up our record. Believe it or not we nearly all turned out at the school parties, outsides games and even the Forums. When people go among the patriotic sophs they think the school is haunted because there is so much talk about the school spirit. VIRGINIA CARDWELL Page I1 15 lg J Tvf!

You must all know that in this said shoe Was a second floor and a portable too. Eighteen she put on the upper floor, And in the portable were left forty-four. They ate up history, Geography, and Math, And oh, what indigestion some of them hath! They picked up small brushes and worked many hours Painting old English letters and colorful flowers. In the beginning they had a clock, Sometimes it ran and sometimes not. One fine day they got a clock It was electric-it never stopped.

Brother Fox fspeaking to himselfj: There's Brother Wolf. I wish I hadn't come this way. Brother Wolf: How do you do, Brother Fox? Brother Fox: Oh, so so! Brother Wolf: How's your mother and daddy? Brother Fox: They're so so. Brother Wolf: And your brothers and sisters? Brother Fox: They're all right. Brother Wolf: You look as if something was wrong. What is the matter, Brother FOX? Brother Fox: Nothing. Brother Wolf: I have a wonderful plan to catch Brother Rabbit. Brother Fox: What is it? Brother Wolf: Get him into your house. Brother Fox: Oh, I've tried that, Brother Wolf. It's no use. The trick is worn to a frazzle. fBrother Fox starts to walk away.j Brother Wolf: Wait, Brother Fox. You go home and lie on your bed and pretend that you're dead.

Brother Wolf: It's Brother Wolf. I bring you sad news. Brother Rabbit: Sad 'news is soon told. Brother Wolf: Brother Fox died this morning. Brother Rabbit Qopening the door a little Wayj: Where is your mourning gown? Brother Wolf: I am just going to get it. Good-by. i Brother Rabbit: Good-by! fBrother'Wolf goes off sadly.j Brother Rabbit: I wonder if it is true. I don't think Brother Fox can be dead, because he was too young to die. Perhaps a hunter shot him. I will go over to Brother Fox's house and see for myself. ' Act III . Brother Fox flocking through a crack in the doorj: There comes Brother Rabbit. I must make believe that I am dead. tHe stretches out on the bed.Q I'll catch him this time. I am sure I shall. Brother Rabbit fopening the door cautiouslyjs I'd better be careful. Maybe Brother Wolf is hiding inside the house ready to pounce upon me. tHe looks about.j I think it will be safer to stay near the door. Ishould think that there would be some of the animals here mourning over Brother Fox's death. Not even Brother Turkey Buzzard has come to the funeral. I hope that Brother Fox isn't dead, but I expect he is. When a man comes to see dead folks, dead folks always raise up their behind leg and say wahoo! fBrother Fox keeps very still.j This is mighty strange. Brother Fox looks as if he were dead, but he doesn't do as if he were dead. When a man goes to see dead folks, dead folks always lift up their behind leg. and say wahoo! Brother Fox Qlifting his hind legj: Wahoo! fBrother Rabbit runs away as fast as he can.j Brother Fox fsitting upj: He's gone. I wonder why he ran away! The Seniors asked the Third Grade if they would write something for the Record. We thought it would be pleasant to make a play out of one of the Uncle Remus stories. We acted "Mr. Wolf Makes a Failure" several times and then we wrote it down as we remembered playing it. ' I JL ' aj?

PARKER RECORD -Q FOOTBALL l The football team this year labored under two great difficulties, namely, light weight and lackof experience. Parker was outweighed by all its opponents, but especially by North Shore and Onarga. The lack of experience in the players this year can well be judged by the fact that there were only a few men who had ever played football, and none of these were letter men. Mr. LeGault coached the team, assisted by the valuable aid and suggestions of Mr. Negronida and Mr. Wright. They did their best to make it a victorious eleven, and they are to be thanked for making the team what it was. Mr. Wright gave most of his time to the Eighth Grade and Freshman Group. The first game of the season was at North Shore, where the opposing team, which greatly outweighed us, had been in a football camp since the last of August, practicing twice a day, and were therefore in good condition and were working together. Since we had had only eight hours of practice we did well to hold them to a score of 18-o by hard fighting, as is shown by the fact that the North Shore Coach said that this was the hardest-fighting Parker team he had seen in years. The team came back from North Shore pretty well banged up, but with the deter- mination to do better next time. A petition for practice Hve days a week was handed in and granted, and the team worked hard to get into shape for the Latin game. At this game the team showed great improvement, and after a good, hard, clean game the score was tied o-o. Again after several weeks of practice we met Harvard, and although fighting hard went down to defeat 14-o. They got their first touchdown by a long, sixty-yard end run, and pushed their second one over after we fumbled on our own fifteen-yard line, and failed to recover. The playing was more even than the score indicates. Parker com- pletely fooled Harvard on a shoestring pass, and then did not complete it. Another time we took the ball down the field for three first downs in succession. Several Parker men received injuries at this game which were a great hindrance to them for the rest of the season. Page Svucfzly-four f Q-v 9 A c-- i 11930 fl3i,e..',,..i rg. + A 1 PARKER RIECCURD I " fc Several weeks later, with our squad diminished by illnesses and weakened by injuries, after the dismissal of three regulars for breaking training, we went to Onarga. Here Onarga's heavy and well-oiled team beat us 44-6. However Parker's light team played the best game of the season at Onarga, and made them fight hard for every inch they gained as well as accomplishing a good deal offensively by making the one touchdown of the year, and also carrying the ball once more to the enemy's one-yard line, then fail- ing to put it over. The team is to be praised for givi-ng its best. Those receiving major letters for football were: J. Lynch, Managerg A. Galt, Cap- taing F. Bridges, Bethge, S. Goddard, Havemeyer, Jaques, Eckstorm, Frankel, Resnikoff, McKenna, Selsor, Eichberg, Sturm. 1- v ' J, 'f- 1930 PW' Smwlfjl-fills -- PARKER RECORD . HEAVYWEIGHT BASKETBALL Basketball has been played at Parker for a longer time than at a good many Chi- cago schools. Many alumni return to tell us about the team, in one instance, which beat that year's city champions, and many boast of fives that never lost a game. The last Parker team that approached such a record was the lightweight team of 1928-1929. This team went through the season losing only one lightweight game of the whole series. In only one other game were they defeated, and then by a heavyweight team of the Harvard School. This lightweight team had only one Senior playing upon it, so that all the other players, mostly Juniors, were eligible for either the heavyweight or lightweight team this year. Three of these men turned heavyweight. With two men new to the High School, the heavyweight team started its season. If the success of this season is going to be determined by the number of games won, our team might fall short. For although it was called a heavyweight team, the majority of its members could have played lightweight. With this handicap, and also the fact that our practice during each week was less than half that of the schools with which we played, we were hard Put to win, and several teams defeated us, a list which included Latin, Harvard, North Shore, and Onarga. However, no one could doubt that our team was a scrappy one, as all of these games would indicate, because in only one of them was the team defeated by anything like a big margin. Most of the games were close, so close indeed that Parker -got the general reputation of not being able to win a close game. But these illusions were soon shattered when We defeated Luther twice in one Week, winning one game by the ge-nrous margin of twelve points, but winning the other by a margin of only one point. Earlier in the season we defeated North Shore by three points in a game which brought a large part of the school to the gym. Although we lost some very promising players in the middle of the season because of infringement on the training rules, it seems to me that there has never been a greater spirit of scrap and sportsmanship in a Parker team. FRANK BRIDGES Page Scwrily six 1 is 1- , 1.gg..ifj wan E J ,Y .........-................. PARKER RECORD LIGHTWEIGHT BASKETBALL The "Lights" this year were not nearly so bad as their scores might indicate. In every case they played against teams which far outclassed them. As an example each school that we competed with had been allowed from four to five times as much practice as ourselves. We began our season with bright prospects. Art Galt and Jaques were the only veterans left from last year. Bus Goddard, a new man of much ability, was elected captain, but unfortunately he was shifted to the heaviesg and after the first game Jaques was elected temporary captain and acted as such for the rest of the season. In the opening game we downed North Shore in the fi-nal minutes, I7-13, with a spurt of three baskets in as many minutes. The next week, however, we took a crushing defeat from Latin, 22-9. At the half the score was 6-5 in our favor, but our oppo- nents' ability to sink baskets piled up the score. It may be said here that throughout the season the predominating "iight" of every member of the team was displayed as in the Luther game when in the last two minutes we tied the score twice and it was only due to a free throw in the last half minute of the overtime period that we lost, If-I4. We swamped Harris the following week, 35-5, in practically the first half. At North Shore it was a much faster and more experienced quintet which greeted us than the one we had defeated earlier in the season. Their fast passing attack defeated us, 24-16. In our Hnal game at Latin it was a repetition of what happened before. We were far cfutclassed and the game ended 23-IO. In respect to individual merit, Captain Jaques, playing his third year in the lights, led the scoring with 40 points and directed the defense. Art Galt backed up the rest with his able guarding and dribbling. Redmond, the third senior on the team, played a steady feeding game at center. Zohrlaut and Stapleton, forwards, added both points and fight, as did R. Galt and Sammons. All the above players received letters, and with the fine material left over from this year, the Lights of next season are due to continue their fight and pile up bigger scores.

A., although not meeting as frequently as it should have done d . 9 centere its attention on the observance of training rules especially during the basket- Y ball season. As most of the girls were well acquainted with these rules the Assofiatio , - n merely repeated them to the high school girls at various times when it seemed necessary Again, this year, the complaint of lack of time for athletics was brought out and as every possible system to overcome this had been tried out before, it was decided that voluntar ractic d ' S d ' ' ' ' y p e urmg tu ent Activities Period and after school would be the only way in which more time could be used. During the hockey season this system worked fairly well, but during basketball it was not so successful because both the boys and girls wanted this extra practice and our two gyms were not adequate for both Baseball as usual is played in ever free mo t . I y men , and we hope that in the very near future some provision will be made so that hockey d an particularly basketball may be given the same amount of this very beneficial extra practice. The G. A. A. is an organization which keeps alive the ideals of sportsmanship in h t e minds of the girls, and stimulates them to better their athletic technique and to keep themselves fit. It has a serious ur ose a d 't p p n I s power is respected at all times. ROBERTA WIGHTMAN OFFICERS or THE GIRLS, ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Presideni .,...,. ,.,,.,.,...........

A more systematic plan was adopted this year than has formerly been used, and it seems to have helped. The first half of the season was devoted to drill which we then put to practical use in scrimmage. In this way we developed some level-headedness to substitute for the wild, hit-or-miss playing, of which we often make too generous a use. The second half of the season was given over to official games in two series, and one Blue and White game, won by the Whites 3-o. The winning team was made up of Freshmen and Sophomores, and the losing of Juniors and Seniors. In the first series everyone played, in the second series the picked teams played. During the earlier part of the season, weather permitted most of the games to be played i-n the park. There the large field did much to encourage the development of skill in passing and dribbling. In general, the type of playing displayed this year shows gain over that of former years, but there is still room for improvement in the seemingly small points of technique. Interest in girls' hockey has increased much during the past few years, but we still lack sufficient time. A plan intended to help overcome this difficulty was suggested this year. The idea was to encourage small groups to utilize the Student Activities period on differ- ent days during the week, in voluntary drill. The plan succeeded, in part, and only par- tial success was expected the first year. We think that when this procedure is made cus- tomary the standard of playing will inevitably be raised, and we hope that similar pla-ns will be discussed and considered early next year, for there is excellent material in the High School, and it would be unfortunate if every effort were not made to develop if I0 the ufmfisf- LOU ELIZABETH BAILEY First Series Second Series Won Lost Tied Won Lost Tied Sophomores ,....,....... 3 o o Juniors ...,. .... 2 o I Seniors . . . ,... 2 I o Sophomores . . , . , . .2 1 o Freshmen . . . . .

The girls who received their major letters this year are: Eleanor Wahlstrom, Elizabeth Foster, Lou Elizabeth Bailey, Hannah Pichler, Virginia Martin, Mary Virginia McKee, and Doris Lackritz. Last year Doris Cohn, Edna Krumholz, Virginia Beard, and Ethel Webster won their major basketball honors. Considering the irregular turnout in the high school for basketball, this year was a very successful one. The small group of freshman girls who came out barely made a team, but those who did come out were faithful and interested and deserve credit. Let's hope they have a one hundred per cent turnout next year! The Sophomores were outstanding, both in their regular attendance and in their excellent team work. Keep it up, you Sophs!! And now as to the Juniors, who maintained their same old fighting spirit through- out the whole basketball season. They have great promise for a wonderful senior team next year! And last but not least ffar from leastj we have that little faithful band of seniors who put everything they had into every game they played, and who in the end won the school championship for the year I929-30. The class captains were as follows: Senior, Eleanor Wahlstromg Junior, Frances Hannah Levyg Sophomore, Marjory Demorest, Freshman, Ja-ne Dahl. The Blue and White games were especially good this year because the teams were so evenly matched.

Why, they would scare those men out of their Wits by merely making their usual fencing faces, let alone displaying their extra- ordinary skill. But when they discussed the matter with Mrs. Wright, she thought it over and decided that the consequences would be too serious if such a challenge was made, it was queer that she didn't mention for whom, but of course they all knew. But, seriously speaking, fencing has been very successful this year. The beginners have Worked conscientiously and have caught up with the old timers by leaps and bounds. They are a skillful bunch, and, to tell the truth, we old timers had to be "on guardv all the time. Fencing is loads of fun although it is exacting work, and the thrill of making a point is worth all the hard work put into it. Really, it's great sport! .

For at this time also, the majority of students Qand, in all probability, the faculty tooj is afflicted with that almost inevitable May malady, Spring Fever, for which the sole cure for maybe its only reliefj lies i-n participation in a "snappy" baseball game. At Parker the girls are divided, according to ability, into three groups, each group comprising two teams. Thus competition is afforded in each group. We try to take our baseball more or less seriously by attempting to acquire as many of the fine points as possible, and in combining this with enthusiasm and pep, we really derive a great deal of pleasure and fun from our games. In spite of the comparatively small amount of time allotted to athletics at Parker, the primary group has developed quite a few highly reputable players, as shown by the fact that the following girls have already received their baseball letters: Lou Elizabeth Bailey, Doris Cohn, Ethel Webster, Florine Gold- smith, Germaine Benjamin, Virginia Martin, Mary de Tarnowsky, Jane Tomhagen, Lois Uhlemann.

Since then there have been a few changes concerning the Jury and Lunch Room Rules. In connection with the Jury a law was passed which gives everyone a chance to participate in Student Government as a drawn jury member. The new law provides that when a person has served a term as a drawn jury member he shall not serve again until everyone in his class has had the same chance. In connection with Lunch Room Rules a law was passed to allow cutting ahead in lunch room line, starting at- the sandwich counter and continuing to the cashier. This law was passed to try to speed up the time required to get a lunch as there had been much dissatisfaction. The Lunch Room Committee under the leadership of John Redmond, its chairman, inaugurated the Stag- ger System of passing to lunch, which means the letting out of classes at intervals of a few minutes to relieve the congestion in the line. These changes have helped a great deal, and have speeded up the time required for a person to get a lunch from twelve minutes to two minutes. At the beginning of the year there was some criticism of the conduct of certain study heads as to their severity. However as the year progressed, the attitude of these study heads was changed to the satisfaction of the Assembly. A new study hall gong has replaced the old teacher's bell this year, and does away with a lot of trouble for there is no longer any excuse at the beginning of the period for not hearing the bell. Willard Jaques, who is chairman of the Study Hall Committee this year, has handled the situa- tion very satisfactorily. The halls' problem has been managed very well by Mary Vir- ginia McKee, chairman of the Halls Committee, and her assistants. Ethel Webster, chairman of the Test Committee, and her assistants, finished their work efficiently early in the year. The Enforcement Committee, started last year, was headed by Marion Page Eigbly six 1 Q 3 , , iq- wan 1 F V7 , I , Hunt.. 1 up , ekmyf?v,!'l'.j,,:,A,W., M wi lv i"Zi5'A . s :,t5...,..-M f 1 ,mfg I-....-......., --- PARKER RECORD fr l 4 l i , I I' I ull, I , lily L1 lx 'xl P 4 I w I I-. in Y-.

All the Judges and Assistant Judges have filled their positions admirably. There have been only a few halls and lunch room cases before the jury, but a great number of study hall cases. No pupil, however, has acquired more than forty demerits this year while several went much higher last year. The cases referred to the Supreme Court for the accumulation of thirty demerits have been lessened from five to three. All these statistics show some improvement over last year, and point to a successful year. I hope Student Government will continue on this up-grade during its entire existence, for there is always room for improvement. Before closing this article I would like to thank formally all the advisers, officers, and citizens of Student Government for their cooperation through which this year has been successful. ARTHUR T.

Ilm sure that no past president has found the machinery of the Forum working as smoothly as it has worked this year, with absolute cooperation of the group heads to simplify presenting well balanced programs. The esprit de corps has been order- ly, fostering progress towards an Utopian Forum. Not that we want to become too "goody-goodyy' or continually bow to Minerva, but the judgment of the oflicialsithis year has been more mature than usual which may be some reflection of the noble senior class. Next year's achievements will answer that. New this year was the use of pri-nted pro- grams and the establishment of a pre-review committee for the purpose of reviewing and selecting the best group presentations for the Friday evening programs. This revis- ing committee is composed of a voting body of the group chairmen who pass upon in- tended material. I'm unable to mention names because they would be too numerous but I wish to extend my thanks and sincere appreciation to those who helped me try to make the Forum this year the best ever. Allow me to quote from an article I wrote for the Weekly: "The Forum has no selfish ends to serve, but all act with the same purpose and in the common interest. An interest in the Forum, however, is as much an interest in our- selves, for it is we as individuals participating in organizing or presenting material who benefit beyond mere classroom teaching. Remember, we are not yet out in the world but still in school, and no amount of instruction will prepare us unless we ourselves put that instruction to use. The fundamental ideas of the Forum are sound. That is why so many of those who have once participated in the mechanics of the Forum are its staunch supporters. They have discovered a means of furthering their own interests, realizing hopes, and making a practical educational gain. "For the audience the most that the Forum can hope to do, or should do, is to show the finest example of the things that affect and that ought to promote the general wel- fare and progress of the world. In doing that for both participators and audience, lies the dual educational value of the Forum. "These are the true conceptions which ought to teach us to realize that the life of every one of us can find some place and some intrinsic value in the Forum." ALFRED FISCHER Page Eighty-eight l.- 9 'J v 1 jg- I" 11930 PARKER RECORD THE WEEKLY A number of improvements of importance have been made in the Weekly this year, the most notable being the enlarging of the size of the paper. The Weekly had rather hard sledding at the beginning of the year as the staff was unusually small. However, the staff worked hard and faithfully until new members could be gotten. At first no attempts were made to enlarge the paper, all effort being turned to bringing out atnewspaper as clean and free of typographical errors as possible. It was not long, though, before it was found necessary to enlarge the paper. The margi-ns were cut to almost nothing in order to get those much needed four or five extra lines at the end of each column. Along with this enlargement came the streamer headline. The Weekly had long felt its inability to stress important news events, and it was very satis- fying to adopt two additional styles and sizes of type. By this time the Weekly was run- ning to the very capacity of the press, and it was evident that we would soon have either to put out an extra page or get a larger press. Mr. Meyer, the Weekly's technical adviser, here came to the Weekly's aid. He se- cured an option for us on a larger press which was second hand and of an older model than the press the Weekly had. However, the larger press was in excellent condition and very inexpensive as presses go. A deal was arranged with the school by which the school got the Weekly press while the school's press was disposed of. Thus the Weekly was able to buy the press outright without the trouble of a bond issue as has been necessary formerly. Shortly after the new press was installed the enlarged Weekly came forth. As the press had an increase of sixty-six square inches over the old one, larger margins and longer columns were possible. With these improvements the Weekly's appearance im- proved one hundred per cent. Now a few words as to the literary content. There has been very little change in the literary material of the Weekly. However in the latter part of the year a few excel- lent short stories, written by the pupils, have appeared. Also a humor column has ap- peared rather spasmodically, meeting with about the same success. BILLEE NACHMAN Page Ezgbfy nr 1: t........,..i 'v ...gi f ,ul-930 s ' f 1 I ---------- PARKER RECORD THE RECORD Because the staff realized that truth, simplicity and accuracy were the outstanding characteristics of other Records, we decided, this year, to strive' for greater perfection along these lines. We have kept the book simple in its design because elaborateness would not convey the Parker spirit and traditions expressed therein. We tried especially to improve the photographic work in the book, to make it more lifelike and real. We have seen the necessity for more entertaining and precise writeups. The achievement of last year's staff, financially, would, we had hoped, be equalled, but, although no losses were suffered, the staff had difficulty in accumulating the required amount. One of the first acquisitions of this year's staff was the remodeling of our office. Record workers in the future will have a private and adequate place to work and store their supplies. Our space for the oflice was acquired last year but the conditions under which the staff worked were not at all helpful or convenient. The ofiice, this year, has been made completely usable and is now fairly well-equipped. We hope that within a very few years the equipment may be made complete. Due to the interest with which the Alumni writeups in the last two Records were read, the staff has launched, this year, what we hope will be a series of articles on the various fields of Alumni activity. The article in this issue, though not as complete as we should like to have it, is, we hope, accurate. In keeping with the universal trend towards modernism you will observe that the art theme has been executed with this as an underlying motive. The Record is indebted to the following people whose efforts helped to produce the book: Bob Caldwell, Mary Virginia McKee, Virginia Otley, Miss Steubig, Miss Clements, and Miss Cooper. We hope that this Record will always remain in your possession as a cherished and accurate reminder of the year I929-30 at Parker. As we have been helped by former Records and their staffs let the Records -to come be benefited by the faults and successes of this one.

L g to the participant needs no explanation, and the whole-hearted cooperation and interest of the extemporaneous speaking group has been very encouraging and gratifying. From those who tried out for the team, a squad of twelve, composed of six seniors, one junior and four sophomores was chosen, with two as substitutes. The team of I93O is as fol- lows: Alfred Fischer, Joseph Kepecs, Shirley Greene, Roslyn Robineau, Sterling God- dard, Bernard Nachman, Edna Krumholz, Mary Virginia McKee, Ruth Kellogg, Milton Eichberg, Allen Selsor, and Richard Grauman. The team had more experience this year through an arrangement to speak before the high school several times during the year. With this advantage, and Mrs. Hannum's conscientious plugging and interest, we fulfilled our hopes of victory by winning the meet with our old opponent, University High School, and we also won a meet with Englewood High School. Current Events were excluded from the topics and the preparation period was lessened to thirty minutes, with four minutes to speak. The contests were judged on delivery, material, and organization. Two excellent professors from Northwestern University judged these contests and commended us highly for our effort in stressing these three significant points. Milton Eichberg, who Won first place in each contest, of this year, has been elected captain of the extemporaneous speaking group for 'next year. As public speaking draws to a close, we hope that the group that follows will keep up a live interest in this activity, that Parker may always be proud of it. The team of I93O highly recommends public speaking! ROSLYN ROBINEAU AND SHIRLEY GREENE Pam Nlllffj'-0715 Q 3 1- Y 1 ...ee 5' 1930 55 4 FJ.

We are glad to have him here at Parker. Our school has deplored the few concerts given by the orchestra this season, but the school forgets that Mr. Larsen and the members of his small organization had to take some time for getting acquainted and becoming accustomed to one another. And then, just as we were progressing nicely, and had given one or two concerts, Mr. Larsen became very ill and had to miss several weeks of rehearsals. In spite of this fact, he has added some dif'Hcult musical -numbers to our repertoire. Among them are Hadynls "Second Symphonyl' in D major, a "Flower Suite" by Benyon, Weber's "Oberon Over- ture," and the first movement of BeethOven's "Fifth Symphonyf' DOROTHY nAscH The members of the orchestra are: J v v .L Violins JOSEPH ROSENSTEIN MOE GREENSPAHN DOROTHY DAscH JULE ECKER MARGARET HERNQU1sT LOU ELIZABETH BAILEY ERWIN STURM Viola MEX'ER RESNIKOFF Y' ',,l Violin Cvllox HARRY STURM GEORGE SOPKIN JOSEPH KEPECS JAMES MORRIssON Flulv ARTHUR KELLER Clarimff RAYMOND IMMERXVAHR Piano IRMA LYON Pu qv Niflvly-!lJr'1'i -' lili ' - sf- 1930 E ' 1 l- , COUNTY FAIR Everything considered, this year's County Fair was the most successful we have ever had. This may be attributed, in part, to the excellent planning and organizing done by Miss Wygant who really made us feel that County Fair Day was a red letter day in the Parker calendar. More space and more people were the outstanding phases this year. Instead of the usual plan of placing all exhibits and all booths in the Old Gym and Front Hall, the exhibits occupied four rooms on the second floor and the Old Gym, and a Circus and Magic Show were held in the auditorium. The ice cream booth was put outside in a big tent. The candy was sold in the Hrst grade room, and tea, coffee, and cakes were served in the New Gym. The front hall was the apex of the whole affair. The pets, of which there was an overwhelming number, were displayed in the auditorium and around the grounds. Still, all of our fun and gaiety was not as bright as it should have been because Miss Cooke could not enjoy the Fair with us. However, we tried to give her an impression of part of our fun with the assistance of a radio which was hooked up from school directly to her home. By this means Miss Cooke was able to hear some of our high school boys and girls sing and play and also to hear about some of the pets and a bit of the Magic Show. It made us all very happy to feel that we were sharing our enjoyment with one whose presence we so greatly missed. Thus ended, on October eighteenth, the biggest and greatest County Fair ever held at Parker. ' ROBERTA WIGHTMAN THE QUESTION MARK The "Question Mark" is a publication edited by the Junior English class and published twice a year-once in the fall and then again in the spring. It contains poems, short stories, and prose written by the pupils and faculty of the school. The class tries to choose the best of the material submitted, but often very good contribu- tions are omitted because of lack of space. An attempt has been made to change the name of this publication, and it may be that a new one will be selected after this Record has gone to press. "The Question Mark" has been found to be an excellent stimulus for writing, and gives valuable editing experience to the eleventh grade. May it con- tinue to exist as one of Parkeris enterprises. FRANCES LEVY JUNIOR RED c:Ross The Red Cross Junior Council is a large group composed of representatives from each of the schools in Cook County, public and private. The function of this council is to represent all enrolled members of the Jun'or Red Cross. Thus it is this group which controls the Junior Service Fund. The first ,Saturday of each month is the scheduled meeting time. A directors' room in the First National Bank Building is reserved for the group. Suzanne Shaeffer and Jeanne Baumgartl are Parker's representatives. Franklin Graybower of Lindblom was chairman and Jeanne Baumgartl secretary the first semester. Maurice Bame of Harvard was chairman, the secretary was the same, for the second semester. Hospital Work, volunteer service, and incidental "cheer-upl' work are included in council activities. It is a most interesting activity and well worth participation. ' JEANNE BAUMGARTL Puge Ninely-four . rv. 5- gv,4.,r 1930 PARKER RECORD 5 R . tx ., gif: ,-Q.: v L.: f. N . . 1 ,V ' .,n ,. ., ,, . .

As usual the service consisted mainly of Christmas carols and songs in which the whole high school participated. Selections from the Bible and the teachings of Jesus were read, and a first grader recited the story of the Coming of the Christ, from the Gospel of St. Luke. This year Miss Cooke spoke in appreciation of "World Peace and Understanding." An unusually deep snow and a severely cold day added Christmas atmosphere to the exercise and also prevented many who would otherwise have come from attending. Christmas services gain impressiveness in repetition, to those who have seen them each succeeding year. MARIE NELSON TGY SHOP "Well, Mrs. Santa, I'm in an especially good humor at this Christmas time and it is because the Francis W. Parker School broke their record in toy production this year,', said Santa Claus, jovially. "They have always helped immensely in my big project of making every child in the whole world happy, but this year they have outdone them- selves. "When I got there I first read the 'thank you' letters from last year, and I couldrft help but wonder how many more there will be this year. Then I went in to see the exhibit. It was the same wonderful sight as it always is, but it seemed to be just twice as large. I could imagine the children working, from the little ones washing and ironing the doll clothes to the high school girls and boys in the 'Big Girls' Gifts' and Wood departments. They all must have worked with a will to accomplish so much. Why, if you can believe it, Mrs. Santa, there were 900 dolls of every kind, 325 doll Page Ninety six i 1- , i ...ee i-Y I was e 5 ,. L- as PARKER RECORD , V J , beds with fine bedding in each one, and hundreds of games, blocks, carts, wooden toys, steam rollers, and swings, as well as 280 kiddie cars and hobby horses, in the list of new toys. Then they again made use of my old tradition of the Christmas stocking, by filling net stockings with candy. I tell you it did my heart good to see the whole thing. But I've been talking too much. IQet's sit down to the turkey and plum pudding. I feel as if I could do justice to it after my long talk." JANE DICKSON SANTA CLAUS PARTY It's not very often that Santa Claus can get around before Christmas, and when the lower grades heard that Santa could come to the school they made preparations for a big party. First, they invited their parents, the Seniors, and all the new pupils. Then they planned some dances and some songs for Santa, and everything was then ready for the party. When all the guests had assembled, six senior boys covered with s-now and carrying first grade boys on their backs rushed in with a huge yule log. After much cheering and shouting the log was placed on the hearth. No sooner was this done than Santa jumped out of the fireplace with a great pack on his back. After Santa was seated in a comfortable arm-chair, the first grade danced and sang for him. The second, third, and fourth grades followed with some clever dances and Christmas songs. Then the children told Santa Claus how all the toys had been made in Parker's Toy Shop. Santa was greatly pleased and entertained, and wanted to stay lofnger, but he said he had to gog so reaching into his bag he brought out pop corn balls for all the guests, and with a cheery goodbye was gone, up the chimney and away.

NERVES Nerves a tragic war episode by John Farrar was given as the Hrst of a group of three one-act plays. The scene is laid in the mess hall of Tiger Squadron in September 1918. The story deals with one Jack Coates played ably by Willard aques a first lieutenant who, having a bad heart, had been ordered to stay on ground. The fact that he would or rather could not, go up, leads his comrades to despise him as a bad case of nerves and cowardice At the rising of the curtain the audience sees Rook a mess attendant and Jack talking while waiting for the other men to come back from dawn patrol. When the squadron arrives, Bob Thatch, who has gone up for Jack, is missing. Jack goes out to look for him. In the tragic end, after Thatch comes back somewhat the worse for wear Jack staggers in, and during a period of delirium dies of a heart attack The play was excellently given coming fully up to the Parker standard of Senior Plays MARY VIRGINIA Mc KEE CHARACTERS Ted Hill Captain U S Air Service Frank Bridges Bob Thatch Fu-st Lleutemnts John Redmond Jack Coates Willard Jaques Bob Langston Richard Bethge Arthur Green Second Lleutenams John Frankel Paul Overman Arthur Galt Rook a mess attendant Lester Goddard Scene The mess hall of Tiger Squadron Time September 1918 THE CLD LADY SHOWS HER MEDALS By M Barrze The Old Lady Shows Her Medals was the second of a group of three short plays which comprised the first senior dramatic performance The Great War IS in progress Mrs Dowey IS a charwoman in London Any woman who does not have a man at the front is a pariah. So although she never has been married she adopts the title of Mrs. and finds herself a son.

The reverend gentleman relates how he bumped into Mrs. Dowey's son, on leave from the front. He further explains that Kenneth Dowey is outside. Mrs. Dowey's guests leave her to her joy, and in stalks the brawny kiltie, who, until a minute ago, never knew of her existence. i At first the Highlander is angry at the old woman, but her kindness .and prospects win him to consent to his new relations status. Mrs. Dowey and her son enjoy his leave, with a season of riotous living, and even w uchampagny wine." Then duty calls and the soldier departs. In a wordless epilogue Mrs. Dowey ties up the last of the few real letters she has 1 received from Kenneth, and expects no more.

N4 After an evening of somewhat more serious things we were confronted with the Senior's idea of Shaw's comedy-satire, "O'Flaherty V. Cf, Their idea was certainly k found to be satisfactory by everyone. , X Sterling Goddard as O'Flaherty was undoubtedly the big star of the cast and the , ' rest of the characters were also very well taken although the actors did not reach the peak of dramatic ability that Sterling attained. Roslyn Robineau adequately Hlled the role of O'Flaherty's shrewish mother. The part of Sir Pearce was taken well by John Havemeyer. As the gold-digging maid, Tessie, Virginia Gazlay did excellently. 4 The play itself is by no means one of Shaw's best works, mainly because there is so little action. It portrays the return to his home of an Irish soldier who has been H decorated by the Queen for a deed about which the audience soon begin to hold grave Ni doubts. He is an exaggerating and blustering sort of fellow who complains of the noise and excitement of being decorated as compared with the quiet and comfort of the trenches. But the decoration and leave of absence produce a great change in him. On reaching home he realizes what a foolish woman his mother is and what an insincere xl sweetheart Tessie is and what a silly hypocrite he has been. Altogether this production A furnished a very suitable third to the evening's series of three.

Pinero, is the story of a young actress, Rose Trelawney, who gives up her career on the stage to marry a young man with whom she is deeply in love. This young gentleman, Arthur Gower by name, belongs to a very artistocratic and straight-laced family. Before the marriage the family insists that Rose spend a short time in the Gower house in Cavendish Square. After two weeks under this roof the young actress realizes that it would be impossible for her to spend her life in such an atmosphere of restriction, always living up to the traditions and unwritten laws of the family. So she swears never to see or communicate with Arthur again, and returns to the company of actors and actresses in which she has formerly been known as "Trelawney of the Wells." A young playwright in the company has written a play which they decide to put on. Rose is to be the leading lady. The young playwright has conspired with a young actress of the company and they have planned to rewrite Rose and Arthur. Arthur Gower has left his family and become an actor and is therefore eligible as leading man for the play. He is notified and accepts the offer, never suspecting the real motive. Rose, too, is entirely ignorant of the plot. There is an excellent climax when the two come together. The play is cleverly done and is most interesting.

Gee, Maw, you know what? Well, we fthe Junior Class, you knowj are puttin' on a big party up here, a prom I guess the girls calls it. It's at night and it lasts until real late-until twelve or after, but I thought being as how the next day was Saturday, you'd probably ,low me ter go just this once.

I 'hope that the old hen lays enough so's I kin have one of them affairs to wear like the other girls. We ain't gonna have no stunt 'cuz I guess it's more ritzier not to. They're gonna be a lotta eats-cookies and judy or somethin' like that. It's gonna be decorated an' everythin'. We're gonna have a real band. 'They were talking about Guy somebody. He don't go to school here tho!

Write soon. Your lovin' LIZZIE P. S. We may go to an ice cream parlor after it. LIARY VIRGINIA Mc KEE SOPHOMORE PROM The perfect accomplishment! A party has been given without a stunt, and it took the 193ofSophomores to do it. From eight forty-five to twelve Qanother attain- mentj we danced to a really snappy five-piece orchestra, and there wasn't a minute too much of the smooth music they created. The decorations were really beyond descrip- tion. A crystal globe made of tiny mirrors hung from 'the center of the gym and was slowly revolved by a mechanical process. Different colored spotlights were focused on it and another mirror so placed that tiny irridescent spots of color danced around the bare old gym. Punch and cookies were served, although no one ever pays any attention to them. The high school and faculty were there in full force, as well as the usual number of guests. Everyone who came had a good time-and I think stuntless parties will be the vogue from now on.

After an hour of radio-television with the radio station, I 9 33, we all danced in the attractively decorated Old Gym. The party was thoroughly enjoyed by all and should be a model for future freshman classes, under similar disadvantages to those which the freshmen, alone, had. The party ended about 11:30. All agreed that it was a great party. CARL W. STERN STAG BANQUET The annual Stag Banquet was held this year at the Webster Hotel. It came at the end of a fairly good athletic season. The dinner was served about 6:00. After eating a good dinner, with songs, cheers, and laughter between the courses, the purpose of the meeting was brought up by Toastmaster Wright. Mr. Osborne was first called on and ,he told us the value of school spirit. He called on Mr: Negronida who gave us some points on our teams, for he had voluntarily given his time to help make a better team out of us. Mr. LeGau1t was then called on, and he ran over very briefly some of the incidents in certain games which were amusing and also told us about our teams. Mr. Wright then began making a few dirty .digs at Mr. Hannum who took them very peace- fully. Then Mr. Hannum told us how rotten a baseball player Mr. Wright was and how he struck out every time he was up at bat. Mr. Carley was next called on, and he said a few words. The alumni guests of the Banquet, Harry Zander and Russell Olson, class of 1916, were next called on. The football letters were given out to some twelve persons and then Captain Arthur Galt of the football team was asked to speak. After Galt's speech the twelve men that got letters voted for captain of the team for next year, and Allen Selsor was elected by a large majority. Then the basketball letters and sweaters were given out to fourteen boys. Then Captain Willard Jaques of the Lightweights spoke. Lester Goddard, who had first been made captain of this team and then resigned because he wished to play with the Heavyweights, next spoke. The last speaker of the night was Captain Frank Bridges of the Heavyweights. The fourteen boys who received basketball letters elected Raymond Galt captain of the Heavyweight basketball team for next year. The party broke up at about 8:30. RAYMOND GALT MAY DAY May Day was one of the most beautiful ceremonies of the year. The lovely Queen attended by the remaining girls of the Senior Class formed an unusual and picturesque scene as they marched down the aisle of the auditorium. The fragrance of beautiful flowers and the melody of the high school singing created a spring-like effect. The Lord of the May then crowned our chosen Queeng and original poems, songs, and dances were presented to Her Majesty, from the entire school. The Queen and her attendants led the gay procession to the garden to plant the customary tree with the good wishes of the school VIRGINIA OTLEY Page One Hundred Two l '- e e ct' 1930 e To ' V -1 uf: " J, ' m'- ng a.- gf My A-,..-4 J., .,,.,5,,4, .,. , .. .1 :W'..' i'jf,,g, 4 23 ' ff - ' .

Certainly he could act as well as his father, he was like him in almost every respectg he imitated his very habits of living. Well, why couldn't be achieve even a respectable success? He gazed at one of the "boards" across from the Coffee Shop in Junkerville's finest hostelry. There he saw: A . COMING A SA-r. Nmz Arthur Redmond, Jr. son of the DEAN OF THE AMERICAN THEATRE Proclaimed the greatest dramatic star that America can boast of. This sign was a herald to his arrival. And here he was living on the glory of his father in a lousy backwater jerk. The round of applause given him when he came upon the stage every night made him either angry or sick at heart. They weren't really applauding him, but his father. And the fact that these people most likely never saw his father made it worse. Like all other fool audiences they were mere puppets placed in the seats of the house by ridiculous advertising, ridiculous words and prolific lies. No, it wasnit the people who were fools, it was the advertisers-no, the people, for believing the advertisers. Oh, Hell! Arthur choked on the last of his breakfast. He had been hungry and had eaten ravenously. But his mind was made up. He was not going to have anything more to do with a stage that was merely fools and demigods. He was going to leave the stage flat. He'd show them a thing or two. Having fortified himself with a substantial meal, Arthur was ready to drown the stage in a mud-puddle. He violently swung back his chair and strode in due glory of his father out of the dining room. He went straight to the clerk's desk. No, they didn't have a telegraph office in the hotel but they would be glad to relay his message down to the railway station. Arthur wrote: "MR, ARTHUR REDMOND, SR., LAMBS CLUB, NEW YORK CITY. Dear Dad, hate the stage. Am going to give it up. Shall break my contract. Might cost something. Want to go back to college. Arthur." There, that was that and, What's more, a deed Well done. What, anyway, meant the pilfering pretension of the stage to him? Didn't he have a close connection with it with a father whom the world recognized as the Dean of the American Theatre? Still, it galled him that he was evidently a failure. Well, what matter? He would go out for high finance. In that field he would have a chance for a more sensible life, and a profit- able one too. Now the only thing to do was to wait for his father's consent and then -taway from the boom-boom and blare of the degenerate show world. Arthur read: "MR. ARTHUR REDMOND, JR., JUNKERVILLE HOTEL. Your dear father broke and wishes he had your job. You quit and starve. Stop. You want to go to college. Stop. Good. Stop. University of Hard Knocks beats all. Stop. Write, don't telegraph. Dadf' That night when the audience gave Arthur a reception, he really appreciated it and acknowledged it with true sincerity. Perhaps he hadn't played up to the audience enough. Flatter them! Use the advance advertiser's methods. "Well, with two hundred per week and applause assured,-hm, he could stand it," he mused as the curtain flopped down. ALFRED FISCHER Twelfth Grade Page One Hundred Eleven , 'i 1 '- ' A, fl- -30 ' f,,,f,,i f l -----------' PARKER RECORD ...Q..Q.ff.,..f........ A Certain Sunday with Mr. X of Book-Shop Fame It was Sunday today and therefore the entire morning was spent in bed. After a hard week of work I always feel the need of just such a morning and, what's more, my appetite at dinner is all the greater for not having indulged in the usual week-day type of breakfast. I arose at twelve o'clock and leisurely but carefully dressed myself, desiring to look especially neat--all the while bearing in mind the busy and important day before me. Mr. Smith was here for dinner and I don't know when I've enjoyed an hour more. We had a regular heart-to-heart talk during and after dinner and it was too pleasurable for words. Why is it that my after-dinner cigars are so much more delightfully flavored when accompanied by conversation of a great personality? I left Mr. Smith down town at about three-thirty as he was scheduled to attend a concert. Then I repaired to my dear old book-shop. It looked especially jolly to me today. I think I love it more every minute. As I entered the room there was a gorgeous odor of fresh spring flowers that filled me with ecstasy, and I thrilled in the thought of being able to be amidst this fra- grance during the whole afternoon. A treat indeed! I spent quite a time seeing that everything was in place, and was thoroughly provoked to find Stephen's picture, of which I am particularly fond-especially since it is so new-hung in a most crooked manner. The window had not been opened and therefore there was no possible way of its being blown askew by the wind. Perhaps when Sophie dusted she was unnecessarily careless. I was mightily proud of my little shop-especially today for I believe it really looked its best. The flowers were placed in pretty fashion on the table, and book-cases and the books on the shelves seemed quite alive to me, as they always do. I often wonder whether anyone could feel lonely in my little roomu when it is the most lively place I know. What with my many pictures and worth-while possessions, I should think anyone would find the.atmosphere most enjoyable and cozy. After deep deliberation and all trivialities being tended to, I sat down with much time to spare and reveled in Walpole's newest book which I have almost finished. At five my guests began to arrive in great numbers. I had no idea that I'd invited so many, but in a way I was glad, for I'm always pleased to exhibit and share my shop with many people. Mr. Jones proved to be a charming young gentleman and worthy of all the praise he has received, though I must admit a certain regret and disappoint- ment in Mme. de Blanche. I need not write in my diary tonight of all those present, for I know I shall remember even the least distinguished persons for many years to come. Truly it was a most gratifying afternoon and everyone seemed quite well pleased. Tommy and I became engrossed in profound discussion on the Naval Disarmament problem. We nearly came to blows toward the end and surely there was never a more fitting climax to anything than when Tommy spilt his tea all over himself and the floor at a crucial moment. He is a radical young chap but with age he will become more sane, I feel sure. Sagacity added to his fine mind, though extreme at this stage of the game, will produce a great personage. Mr. Smith came in after the concert and I was so happy to see his beaming face again. We went to a rather late supper together, after I had closed up shop, and sat in the lobby of his hotel until about eleven-thirty discuss- ing various matters but with much more success and suavity than Tommy and I might have done it. I returned home to find a telegram from brother John saying he'l1 arrive tomorrow morning. I foresee a much more eventful week than I expected, for I'm sure John has brought me new pictures and books for my shop, which will be most thrilling. After Iohn's telegram I read the newspaper and now, being rather weary, am about to retire. FRANCES LEVY Eleventh Grade Page One Hundred Twelve - --e ww as ....-..........
