A VARIETY OF PAINTINGS such as still lite, texture, block, interpretive, oil, chalk, and Watercolor are taught to Dolores Tweedy and Karen Meeks as Well as the other art class members. MRS. MARTHA EBENER To an Artist "Open your galleries of art to the people, and you confer on them a greater benefit than mere book education, you give them a refinement to which they would otherwise be strangers." Charles B. Fairbanks To Mrs. Martha Ebener, respected and beloved teacher of art, this book is fondly dedicated. For twenty-three years students at Girls Poly have had the privilege of growing in artistic understanding and developing latent artistic abilities under the tutelage of this remarkable teacher. In dress design, weaving, freehand sketching, watercolor and oil painting, carving, and many other fields, she has opened her students' eyes to sym- metry and beauty, and taught their fingers skills undreamed of. Because of her patient encouragement and stimulating leadership, they have won innumerable awards, includ- ing the coveted Scholastic gold keys, and higher yet, Art Museum scholarships, and have carried away enrichment to their future lives and careers. Before teaching, Mrs. Ebener attended the Millersville State Normal School in Penn- sylvania for two years and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, for two years. After this study, she came to Portland to teach at Lincoln and Franklin- High Schools, and then to Girls Polytechnic in l933. Exceptionally talented in her own right, Mrs. Ebener spends many hours at her own loom, weaving beautiful patterns. She has the special talent of being able to mix unusual colors. and textures for a fabric of glowing beauty. She is a member of the Handweavers Association and a former officer of that club. Behind her lies a wealth of experiences . . . before her, new experiences and new endeavors. May she remember Girls Poly, we who have grown better by knowing her will remember her always with admiring affection. The essence of every picture is the frameg the frame of every school is the Administration. J? MISS RUTH DOWE Principal MBS. RUTH GREVE Vice-Principal MISS RUTH DOWE, officially pre- sented to the Student Body by Dr, Lawrence Winter, reviewed the policies of our school. Friendly Administrators Acting as temporary principal and vice-principal respectively, Miss Ruth Dowe and Mrs. Ruth Greve have administered Well their many duties. Besides ably conducting their routine problems, they whole- heartedly entered into their varied school activities. Miss Dowe was always present to lend her as- sistance to the girls when needed. Her major task was keeping the school running smoothly and or- derly, but she always found time to talk to the girls about their interests and problems. Mrs. Greve Was student council adviser and Worked With the student body officers in planning and executing student affairs. Her major concern lay in handling the attendance problems and coune seling the girls. l r X sy.. t ,A x , 9 ,X Vx it .A I X Q X Q xx K S I ' M jf, ,F xg we H E Q we AMUNDSEN.
