clcxsses - activities - projects - clubs - and ideas
4 her behind -the - scenes problems, all showing
smiles - sorrows - or laughter.
The brown and orange shades of autumn blend with
the tall activities. Winter, grey and white in color,
combines the seasonal projects of clubs and clctss-
rooms. Then the sudden warmth ol spring in her gay
colors brings the anxiety of graduation ond the linishf
ing ot the school year.
During these seasons the students F the faculty - f
and the activities paint the many pictures that come oli

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
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.
MISS RUTH DOWE
MBS. RUTH GREVE
MISS RUTH DOWE, officially pre-
sented to the Student Body by
Dr, Lawrence Winter, reviewed the
policies of our school.
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.

the team was honored at the "Varsity Drag," the
Pep Clubs dance. The proceeds of 574.00 will go

Fancy drills were the favorite of this high-

in their white satin outfits and in the spring,
in their new uniforms of White corduroy skirts,
orange vests and White blouses.
"Ianuary live," postponed until February 3
in the Benson Social room because of weather
