SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
To the 1935 Grarluafcs of the
Girls Vocational School.
My dear young Friends:
VVhen" I received your very kind invitation to contribute some-
thing to your year-book I was very glad to be able to accept.
I need not tell you how deeply interested We all are in the work
of the several vocational schools. The Way in which the department
of vocational education has been developed in the last ten or fifteen
years indicates what an important place in our school system voca-
tional training occupies. It is the purpose of a school system likes ours
to provide educational training for every boy and girl so that they
may have the opportunity to prepare themselves for the particular
vocation in life for which they are adapted, and in which they can be
successful. Pupils differ very much from each other in the types of
ability they possessg consequently, a school system should offer a
variety of training for the different types of boys and girls who are
enrolled. The girls who pass through the Girls Vocational School
have an unusual opportunity to secure good training in this particular
type of Work which they have selected for their career.
VVe are anxious to do everything that is possible to help you to
be successful and happy in the vocation which you are to enter. Please
do not think that our interest in your Welfare terminates when you
are graduated from your school. VVe shall continue to offer our
assistance to you at all times that we can be of' service. Please do
not hesitate to call on us if we can help you in any Way.
VVishing each one of you the greatest possible success and happi-
ness in life, I am,
Very sincerely yours,
DAY'IlJ E. VV141o1.i:iN
I wish to extend
to the members of the 1935 Grad-
uating Class, 1ny best wishes for
happiness and success in any-
thing you undertake. I would like
to leave this message with you.
Getting along with people suc-
cessfully will be one of the hard-
est problems in life. It means that
you must be willing to give and
take in all hu111an relationships.
It will be hard to take criticism from your employer, but remember if
he did not recognize your worthwhile qualities he would not have taken
the time and trouble to point out your weaknesses so that you might
overco111e them. The person who takes the time and trouble to render
you constructive criticism is your friend. The criticism may sometimes
be given in an abrupt manner, but overlook that and get the real value
-an opportunity to grow and improve yourself.
I hope that the time you spent in school has been both enjoyable
and profitable. The School stands ready, at all times, to render assis-
tance to you in solving your problems. A welcome always awaits you
at your Alma Blater, The Girls Vocational School.
EDNA M. ENGLE
I wish to extend
to you my best wishes for future
success and happiness.
But remember that success does
not co111e without effort and sin-
cere purpose. YVhile occupations
differ greatly in the qualifica-
tions which they demand, there
is a certain small group of' quali-
fications which is essential, no
matter what your job may be. If'
these are 11ot well developed in you, you are likely to be a failure in
spite of' all the training you may have received.
As you have been studying and learning your trade and related
Work at the Girls Vocational School, we hope that you have been
gaining and strengthening desirable personality and character traits,
so that you will go out on the ob not only equipped to do your work
well, but to do it in such a manner that you will be a credit to your-
self, your parents, and your school.
Remember, that the only fair thing is to give your work, what-
ever it is, the best that is in you. If it is not worth your best, it is not
'th h'l .t.ll.

We're the joy of Girls Vocational,
That stately castle dear!
That gives specific training
To students most sincere.
And this shall be our motto,
Be true and faithful too.
We spent two happy years here,
Now we shall start anew.
Oh, we love the Girls Vocational,
And we hope you'll love it too.
All the teachers have been faithful
And have done their best for you.
All of us regret departing,
But loyal we shall be
To the school of higher standards
And the school of high ideals.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1935
Bly Frieda Younghans
RECENTLY I spent an afternoon with one of my classmates whom I had never visited
before. She had many interesting things to show me, but the one that I most enjoyed
seeing was just a little book. We had been talking, as school girls often do, about les-
sons and teachers and graduation. Then our thoughts wandered back over the events
of the past two years and soon I began to feel that we two girls had so much in com-
mon that we should not let Commencement Day separate us from each other. Ann
must have felt that same warmth of friendship, for suddenly she reached for a little
blue book and said, "Frieda, I'm going to let you read my diary. You'll find some of
my deepest secrets in itg but I don't mind. I want you to see some of the things I've
written about G. V. S. since the day we began our junior year."
The hour that followed was like the rolling back of a lovely velvet curtain. The
fioodlights of memory revealed picture after picture of days at G. V. S. as we read
through the pages of the little blue diary.
On September 8, 1933, a new fall term had started. We were then only beginners
in a strange and different school. "Am I going to like it?" Ann had written, "Time
Soon there appeared almost daily entries about an oratorical contest on "The
Merits of the N. R. A." There was a preliminary contest in assembly one dayg and
Doris Purdy was selected to represent G. V. S. in the inter-school contest at
On November 8, at night, the school was to hold an "open house" session. Ann
was very excited because her mother and her "boy friend" were coming. "What will
my teacher say to Mother? And what will Charles think of the way I work in
sc-hool?', we read.
Next came the Student Council election, with its lively campaigning and the pep
assembly. After election day, Ann had made this entry: "I like every girl that was
elected to office. Imogene Wain is president, Fannie Clark is vice-president, and
Mary Rhoads is secretary and treasurer. I'm glad I did my part to help them win."
There was a note for November 27 about a supper which the Associate Alumnae
of G. V. S. had in the Corner Cupboard Tea Room. Ann was there to help sell copies
of The Trade Tackler and she was wondering how it would seem after she had gradu-
ated to come back to Alumnae meetings.
In December there were numerous entries about thc annual bazaar. Ann ani
Charles had spent the whole evening there--most of it in the dance hall.
There was mention of a senior class meeting-the first time the Class of '34 had
met. Even the juniors were interested in what had probably taken place and Ann had
lregun to wonder who would make a good president when the Class of '35 should
Christmas was creeping up through the pages of the diary, and on December 21
Ann had written about the carol assembly with lantern slides and tableaux, which
had taken place that day at School No. 27, where all G. V. S. assemblies and gym.
classes were held in those days. On December 22, the play, fCon.timaed on uecvt pagel
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1935 fContinuedj
"Lost Children," was presented by the Dramatic Club. Every one said the players
did very well.
The remainder of that winter went very fast. Ann had taken home to her mother
a letter about the newly-organized Parent-Teacher Association. Mrs. Bauernschmidt
was to address the January meeting. "Many a P.-T. A. letter have I brought home
since then," Ann remarked as she turned a page. "Remember? The meetings used to
be held in Mrs. Colbe'rt's old room in the Washington Street Building. It seems so
Then at last, that long-waited-for day arrived-the term had ended and each
student was holding and eagerly examining a report.
In February, the Art Club made a visit to the Art Museum and a Senior Dance
was held in the gymnasium of School No. 27. Then an exciting day for the members
of the Glee Club-they were on the air broadcasting over Station WCAO. Ann had
listened in and felt that they had "done honor to our school with their worthy efforts."
April 13 was a very special date. Charles had been warned far in advance to be
sure to reserve it for the operetta. As they sat through' the performance of "In Old
Vienna," they decided that "success is not a good enough word to describe it. It was
much better than that."
The biggest Parent-Teacher meeting of the year was on May 22. Girls in nearly
every class in the school took part in a fashion show for the parents' entertainment.
Some of us modeled hats, dresses, suits or pajamas, while others showed various
styles in hairdressing.
The Business Senior Class that year gave a Tea Dance for the purpose of raising
funds for a gift for the school. This pleasant affair was also in May.
The month of June was filled with events that always precede Commencement.
Most of them were Senior activities, in which we Juniors were not expected to partici-
pate. However, we looked on from afar, as it were, feeling a deep interest in every-
thing that happened. Ann had made notes about the Senior Prom, held at Schwaab's
Hall on June 1, the picnic at Paradise Beach on June 5, Field Day at Jackson
Place on June 8, and, finally, Commencement at Polytechnic Auditorium on June 20.
The entries made during the summer looked very interesting but we skimmed over
them and found September 6, the date on which our Senior year began. "How dif-
ferent everything seems V' Ann had Written, "All classes are now in one building,
some of the teachers are newg and I confess I don't feel quite at home. But I am sure
I shall like it when we get settled in our new surroundings."
In a few days, the school was running according to schedule and the routine
was established so thoroughly that nothing unusual occurred for some weeks. Ann
was pleased to have her mother taking an active interest in school affairs. She re-
corded dates of P.-T. A. meetings and one of Dr. Weglein's regional meetings at
Poly. The event that made the deepest impression on Ann during October was
Dorothy Dow's visit to Girls Vocational School. "If I ever learn to type as Miss
Dow does," she had written, "I hope some typewriter company will take me on a

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1935 QContinuedj
Elsie Jarvis, and Mary Madden became officers of the Senior Classg and after a fiery
campaign, Catherine Felling, Dorothy Airey, and Priscilla Hurley were elected to
the offices of the Student Council. "Do you remember the speeches that were made in
assembly to introduce the various candidates?" Ann asked. "I think when I am fifty
years old, I shall still be able to repeat my speeches word for word," I answered.
It was in November, too, that hats and capes for the City College band were
made by our girls in the needlework trades. "Those girls will long remember that
job-and the game, too, I dare sayli' was Annis comment on the subject. A little
farther on, we found this entry: "Our Glee Club is really stepping out. They are to
sing at Lehman Hall on Sunday afternoon. I think Cl1arles and I will go to hear them."
December again came quickly upon us trying hard todo away with the old year.
On the fourteenth, we had our bazaar, the first one to be held in our new home on
Jackson Place. How we did work to make that bazaar a success! Ann's entry for
that day was as follows: "Everywhere I went I saw Seniors helping-in the Tea
Room, in the Twin Shops, along the corridors, at nearly every booth, at the minstrel
show. It was grand, but now that it is over, I am too tired to even write about it."
Then just before Christmas, when the stores were doing a very heavy business,
many of us were sent out for a few days of work. Ann was among those who worked
in a 'department store. "Isn't it splendid 3" she wrote at the end of her first day. "I'm
actually earning money, and I'll be able to get some extra things for Christmas.
What a lot I do owe to Girls Vocational School! I shall probably miss the Christmas
play and I am sorry about that because I know it will be good."
The outstanding events in January, 1935, were a fashion show given in assembly
by the Dressmaking and Millinery Departments and a Tea Dance given in the
gymnasium by the Senior Class. February brought a new semester-the last one
before graduation. On March 2, the Seniors had a dance at Schwaab's Hall.
Events that took place in the spring of 1935 were so fresh in our minds that we
scarcely needed the diary to help us recall them in their proper order. Our memory
of those days is one long series of attendance charts, ticket-selling contests, safety
posters and exhibits, fire drills and assemblies. But clearer and brighter than all,
stands the memory of Friday evening, April 5, when our operetta, "The Belle of
Barcelona" was presented before the largest audience that ever attended a' per-
formance sponsored by Girls Vocational School.
Among the last notes in Ann's diary was one about a photographer coming to
school one afternoon to take pictures for the year-book. "That makes me realize
that graduation time is almost here," I remarkedg and as we gazed thoughtfully
at the remaining pages of the little blue book, they seemed to lose their blankness and
to show forth the rest of the story of the Class of Thirty-five. I was conscious of
warm, yellow sunshine, the fragrance of honeysuckle and roses, and in the silence,
I could hear the hum of bees. Then, through it all came the strains of our class song,
and I could see girls in white sitting on a large stage before a vast audience.
Ann was speaking, "I think I'd like to live it all over again," she was saying.
My dream was broken, but I knew that I had seen a vision that would come
again and then remain for long years a memory of the past.

DEAR Junior Sisters:
Realizing that our 'days with you are numberedg that soon the hour will come
when we shall pass from your midst into that great adventure that awaits every
school girl when her undergraduate days are overg that the time is fast approaching
when you can no longer hear even the echo of our voicese-when our presence here
will be nothing more than a memoryg realizing all this, we are conscious of a solemn
iluty, an obligation, a Hnal task to be performed.
We have pondered the wisdom of preparing a last will and testament, that well-
worn means of making bequests to those we leave behind. We have weighed carefully
the value of that which we can bestow upon you. We have looked deeply into our own
thoughts and feelings, and we have 'decided that our parting gift to you shall be not
a legal document, but a message of wisdom and counsel.
Through toil and experience we have learned many lessons. We have come to
cherish many of the things that strangers would scorn. When you were new students
in our classrooms, perhaps you laughed at some of the very things that we now hold
The old steam kettle in the Millinery Shop, for example, is one of your rarest
treasures. It has been in use for nine years and will serve nine more, with careful
treatment. Then there is the mirror, equally as old. Never once has it failed to give
a true picture of the one who stands before it. The old enameled dishpan and the
faithful brim block, much the worse for wear, but still doing their bit-treat them
tenderly and prolong their useful lives.
In the Power Machine Department our memory lingers on those twelve new
machines that are still in perfect condition. How proud of them we are! Keep the
lockers neat and clean, do not break or lose any of the scissorsg handle the dress
and smock patterns most carefully. It would grieve us sadly if you should fail to
follow our good example. Above all, continue saving every scrap of material. Some
day the junior class can use these scraps to make a quilt for the annual bazaar.
We hope the Junior Salesmanship girls will be able to sell some of our dreams
to those who have the power to turn dreams into more substantial things. We have
never ceased to long for a room partitioned off so that, when a class is divided into
groups, one group will not disturb another. Then there is our dream of a rapid
transit system that would enable the students to make the long ourney from room to
room in the three-minute period allotted for passing. And when you are carrying
stacks of retailing books from the first Hoor to the third, do not yearn for eleva-
tors-be grateful for the good stone stairs and do not complain of the heavy load-
remember that there are not even enough of the books to supply each girl with one.
VVe think of the Dressmaking room with a pang of regret. How we wish we
could have provided Miss Kruse with a pair of really sharp scissors, some tape
measures with the marks visible, a barrel of straight pins, a special tracing table,
and two more cutting tables. VVe warn you that no one dressmaking Hgure can possi-
bly be adjusted to suit every girl in the classg also that Miss Kruse can always
find fault with the way you put sleeves in a garment. And fC'ontin.ued on next pagej

we solemly recommend that you procure an alarm clock to announce that it is time to
put your work away.
The Junior Business Training Department needs to be reminded that it is useless
to ask for less homework or to try to escape making up work that you have missed,
also that during music class one can almost never tell when the period is over unless
one watches the clock. We advise the Business classes to send scouts out into the
wide, wide world in search of loads and loads of typing paper, ink that does not
spill, blot, nor spot, and a mechanical operator that will serve ice cream faster. May
the girls in this department maintain their insatiable appetite for ice cream at lunch
We leave, in the Corner Cupboard Tea Room, our white uniforms, which are
hound to get dirty no matter how careful you areg and our green uniforms of which
there are never enough, no matter how small the class may be. Across the hall, we
leave our tiny locker room with the hope that you will be given a larger room and
larger lockers. We are sorry to tell you that dishes will always have to be washed
after being used, that they will surely break if they are handled carelessly, and that
you will probably never be able to find bread and. butter plates when you need them.
Our parting message to the girls who are learning Beauty Culture is this: always
keep the Twin Shops spotless and in perfect order. More people see these rooms
than any other room in the building. Remember that all the girls in the school are
your customers and that you, therefore, have the power to make your influence felt
throughout the student body. When some unwitting Junior sees you put a hairpin in
your mouth, she may copy your example-and alas! a safety rule is broken and the
result may de disastrous.
We firmly believe that, if you whom we have counselled will earnestly heed our
warnings and follow our instructions, the Girls Vocational School in Baltimore will
continue to grow and prosper. We shall think of it always as a beacon light sending
out rays of assurance and encouragement to those who have left its protecting walls
and rays of guidance and welcome to those who are yet to seek its shelter.

RIDING ON A CLOUD
By Josephine' Lewis
SPRING! I was sitting by the window on that beautiful spring morning. As 1 sat
gazing out of the window, how I longed to be outside of school. My eyes were fixed
upon a fluffy cloud which sailed serenely across the azure sky. It came nearer. I was
facinated as it approached the window sill as though guided by a fairy hand. I stepped
out of the window and sat in the center of the fleecy white cloud. I felt as if I were
reclining upon a heap of soft feathers. I floated away over the school roof and through
the park. Suddenly, I heard a commanding voice. "Josephine," I heard it say, "save
your dreams for the night timef, I awoke with a start. Instead of sitting on a cloud, I
found myself on a hard bench. I was very much disappointed because the teacher had
shattered my lovely reverie. Perhaps some day my downy cloud will come again, and
I shall continue my strange sky voyage.

LOYALTY TO YOUR SCHOOL
By Ruth Bitterman
You have often heard from your teachers that loyalty to your school is one of the
best traits of character that you can have or develop. lt would not be fair to take all
from your school and give nothing in return. Instead, you can show faithfulness and
devotion, the combination of which is loyalty.
Many of you, no doubt, think that after graduation there is no cause to think of
yo. ' school in terms of loyalty. However, loyalty to G. V. S. is just as important
aft. .' you have graduated as when you are attending school, perhaps, even more so.
The reeling of loyalty should be so strong within you that you will defend and praise
your Ahna Mater when someone criticizes it. If you, yourself, talk critically of your
school, the people outside will not form a good opinion of you or your school. Very
often the graduates give a person the only impression of the school he is ever to
receive. The type of girl you are, the kind of work you produce, your appearance,
your speech, and all of your characteristics help other people to get an impression
of your school. Try to make this impression a goo-d one by making use of the
splendid training that you have received here at G. V. S., and by being loyal always.
There are many ways of showing loyalty after graduation. The best way is by
keeping in touch with your school. You can join the Alumnae Association, come to
their meetings and suppers, and renew your old friendships. You can subschibe to
the Trade Tackler, thereby helping the club and getting news of the school. A very
good way of showing loyalty is by coming back to the bazaar and the operetta. This
will not cost you much in time or money but will prove that you have learned the
meaning of one word-loyalty, and that you feel grateful to G. V. S. for the excel-
lent ,training that you have received.
By Clementine Fertifta
NI promise you I" What do these three words mean to you as you say them? To
many individuals in the business world and to many, perhaps, in our own school,
they simply mean-just three words. One is seldom under obligation to make a
promise, but of course this does not mean that promises should seldom be given. It
does suggest, however, that, since promises are usually voluntary, they should he the
more faithfully kept.
In promising anything, be sure it is something within your power to perform,
and then promise yourself that you will not break your word. Broken promises
have a tendency to weaken friendships. Is it not true that you care much less for a
person who breaks a promise made to you?
Endeavoring to keep a promise builds strength into your character. ln social
life, fulfilling promises will help to keep true friendships, and in business matters
it is a way of establishing your reputation for dependability. Through keeping prom-
ises, you not only prove your good character, but you also improve it, because one of
the best ways of forming a good habit or breaking a bad one is to promise to do the
right thing and then strive to keep that promise.
By Harriet Schuler
Now that we seniors are leaving G. V. S., we think of the changes in our school and
ourselves since we, with timidity and curiosity, first entered the school which has
meant so much to us. Here was found a school totally different from any school we
had ever attended. It is appropriately called a "Trade School" because its purpose
is to train students to earn a livelihood and be good citizens. Hard work, persistence,
and a fine attitude were soon found necessary for success in any trade.
We have witnessed a number of changes in our school. Perhaps this is the last
senior class to remember the days when girls traveled daily three blocks from Jack-
son Place to the little red building on Washington Street. This is the first year that
our school has been in one building. This was made possible by the co-operation of
the Parent-Teacher Association. We remember the library of two years ago. It was
then very small and had a limited number of books. Now, because of a successful
bazaar, the students can enjoy a larger collection of book treasures. In acquiring
this library, the splendid co-operation of the students and the faculty has manifested
itself. We not only have seen changes in our building, faculty and school activities, but
we are conscious of changes in ourselves. We have done more than learn book
knowledge and acquire skill in our trades, we have developed in our characters
many worthwhile standards and principles that will be carried with us into the
world of work. And so, as our school days come to an end, we realize that we have
become better people because we have known and have been a part of G. V. S.

" 'Darknessl A scream! The shot of a gun Y' Oh, why must I always be reading a
mystery book when the family 'decides to go out?,' said Margaret to herself, "And
wouldn't I get thirsty just at the most exciting point!"
Margaret went to the kitchen and pressed the switch, but strange to say, it did not
light. "Gee! I'm afraid! I wish I were not alone. I wonder if the monster in the book
l'm reading could have cut our electric wires too 1"
Although she felt very shaky, she proceeded in the dark. Her foot struck against
a hard object, and something white leaned havily on her shoulder. She screamed and
the glass which had been clutched tightly in her hand fell to the floor with a crash.
Out into the yard she flew, slamming the door behind her. A loud crash sounded be-
hind her also.
"What could that have been?" thought Margaret, too frightened to turn and find
out. Afraid to go back into the house, she waited outside for someone in the family
to return, expecting any minute to see something white floating down the steps in
pursuit. Finally her mother arrived. Margaret told her of the mysterious happenings.
Of course Mother scoffed at such a silly thing, and, on going into the kitchen, found
the switch all right, much to Margaret's astonishment. The ironing board lay on the
floor. This had caused the crash that had frightened her so. Mother laughed herself
to tears but Margaret failed to see the funny side of it. Thus was the "Ironing Board
IN OCTOBER of the
19341-35 school year, seven clubs were
organized at Girls Vocational School.
Every girl had the privilege of join-
ing one of 'these clubs and of course
she selected the one which she thought
would be particularly interesting to
The purpose of these various clubs
is to give the girls some diversion
from the regular school day routine,
and to teach them a profitable way to
spend their leisure time. Membership
in these clubs affords the students an
opportunity to express themselves in
unusual ways and to learn how to
work well with others.
Each club is under the direction of
a member of the faculty and each has
officers who preside at the meetings
which are held on Thursdays during
the eighth period.
GLEE CLUB AND DRAMATIC CLUB
'Ilia Glee Club and the Dramatic Club combined to present an operetta, "The Belle
of Barcelonaf' The entire cast is shown, in the photograph above, on the stage in
Clifton Park Junior High School Auditorium.
The Dramatic Club was organized by Mrs. Mayer last fall and functioned as a
separate group for several months. Its two major undertakings were a minstrel show
at the time of the annual bazaar and a Christmas play late in December. In January
this club was dissolved, and a number of its members joined the Glee Club.
The Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Wellsy, has rendered musical selections
at several assemblies during the year and will have an important part in the com-
mencement exercises in June. On two occasions last fall, the club prepared a special
program, one for a radio broadcast, and another for a Sunday afternoon meeting of
thc Baltimore Open Forum. The outstanding -event of the year, however, was the
presentation of "The Belle of B,arcelona,', the story of which follows:
Margarita de Montero, the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, has just returned
from a finishing school in Madrid. It is fiesta time in Barcelona, and the day of the season's
first big bull fight. Margarita meets her friends in the Plaza where they are singing and danc-
ing and landing the great toreador, Emilio.
Three years before, while touring the United States with her parents, Margarita met
Lieutenant Harold Vtlright. It was "love at first sight," hut their courtship was soon inter-
rupted hy her unexpected return to Spain.
Lieutenant Wright goes to Barcelona as custom inspector and arrives at the time of the
annual fiesta. Un the day of Margarita's return from Madrid, as he is walking in the Plaza,
he finds a mantilla on which is attached a silver pin. He recognizes it as one he had given her
They meet when Margarita returns looking for her mantilla, and ffl0HffI1ll!'fI on nrnzvt pugrfl

the old romance is resumed. Lieutenant Wright learns she has become engaged by her parents
to a scheming Spanish nobleman, much against her will. He secures the aid of his friends in his
efforts to break this engagement, but is opposed hy the scheming nobleman and Margarita's
Lieutenant Wright suspects the nobleman, who is chief inspector for the Spanish govern-
ment, as being responsible for certain alleged conditions existing at the custom house. He be-
gins an investigation that leads to some surprising discoveries.
The scenes that follow lead up to a climax in the third act revealing the true character
of the nobleman. He pleads for mercy through Margarita's parents, which is granted after
a promise to release her from the old engagement.
All ends well as wedding bells proclaim Margarita's engagement to Lieutenant VVright.

THE Art Club, under the direction of Miss Ritter, has had a year of various activities
which may be divided into three classifications. The Hrst of these, creative works,
included water color and oil sketches, pencil and charcoal drawing, and ink sketches.
The subject matter that seemed to be of general interest was figure drawing and
Craft work interested another group. This consisted of needle point pocket-books
and pictures, wall hangings, books, portfolios and albums.
The third activity consisted of visits to the Baltimore Art Museum and the
'Walters Art Galley as well as tl1e study of slides from the Department of Education
and exhibits from the Museum of Art. The slides were a miscellaneous collection of
paintings and material from the Walters Art Collection. Among the exhibits from the
Museum were five modern pictures, seven medieval pictures, four examples of modern
printing, eight types of the graphic arts and five modern posters.

ONL: of the most interesting clubs sponsored by our school is the Knitting and Cro-
cheting Club. Our instructor is Mrs. Williams. The popularity of this club was
plainly evident when fifty girls enrolled the first day. It was necessary, however, to
limit the membership to thirty. Many of the members knew nothing about either knit-
ting or croeheting, but have learned the plain stitches of easy problems, and are ea-
gerly looking forward to working on more difficult ones which will show what they
can really accomplish. .
Articles being made by the girls are sweaters, berets, collars, purses, scarfs, and
other useful accessories. A number of girls from the club took time after school to
visit local department stores sponsoring various revues of crocheted and knitted ar-
ticles and garments. After reviewing 111uel1 in this line of work, they decided that it
was more economical to knit or crochet their own suits and dresses than to buy them.
This year, especially, crocheting and knitting are quite fashionable for clothing as
well as bedspreads, table cloths, scarfs and covers for backs and arms of chairs.

'Ilia meetings of The Trade Tackler Club this year have been conducted by Harriet
Sehuler, with Ruth Bitterman serving as secretary. During the winter the members
of the club, with Mrs. Rich, visited the Ottmar Mergenthaler School of Printing
where our school paper is printed. The trip proved to be very interesting to the girls.
Since the club began its work, there have been seven issues of The Trade Tackler
published. In nearly every number there have appeared pictures which were of inter-
est to students and friends of Girls Vocational School. VVith the coming of spring
the weekly meetings become even more filled with interest and activity. The June
number is always the biggest undertaking of the year. The publication and sale of
this year-book will complete the work of the present club. It has been a pleasure to
publish a paper for our own school and to exchange papers with other vocational
schools. The personnel of the Trade Tackler Club follows:

THE Dancing, Tumbling, and Tap Clubs of our school are under the direction of Miss
Pruss of the Department of Physical Education. The three clubs afford an oppor-
tunity for advanced work in these activities based on the class work in physical edu-
cation. The membership is not restricted--anyone who is interested is elgible to join.
The members of the clubs have taken part in assemblies, in the minstrel show and in
the operetta, and through these activities have developed many valuable qualities.

Tim Student Council of the Girls Vocational School has had a very worthwhile and
beneficial year., The success of this organization is due to the co-operativeness of each
member. Its officers are girls of fine character, and each representative is a loyal and
sincere person. Although their ideals are high, their goals are within reach of each
student, and they have shown us why we are so proud to belong to Girls Vocational
School. The teachers who serve as advisers of the Student Council are Mrs. Sheppard
and Miss Corbett.

DID you know that "The Trade Tacklern circulates not only in Baltimore, but also
in other trade schools throughout the country? In exchange, many schools from all
parts of the country send to us their papers.
From Minneapolis, Minnesota, comes the "Vocational Crier." The paper gives
news of happenings at Miller Vocational High School. Many illustrations and adver-
tisements are printed on its pages. It is a member of the National Scholastic Press
We should like to receive more copies of "The Technician" from Detroit, Michi-
gan. The papers we have seen indicate that the Cass Technical High School is a very
active one on the athletic field. One whole page is usually given over to sports. The
students of journalism are responsible for the publication of "The Technician."
The "Hadley Dynamo,", a paper from St. Louis, Missouri, is edited and printed
at Hadley Vocational School, "the school with a purpose." VVe have enjoyed reading
the many humorous articles as well as the serious ones.
We receive "The Flower Echo" from Flower Technical High School in Chicago,
Illinois. An interesting article called "Flower Celebrates Seventh Year in Present
Building" was printed in December. With it was a drawing of a birthday cake with
"Best Wishes from the Echo" written across the top. We were glad to share in this
From Moorestown, New Jersey, came the Mystery Number of "The Nutshellf,
The cover page of this interesting book was quite unique and we feel that the artist
is to be congratulated. The journalism in this magazine is excellent. We have never
seen a more complete high school publication.
"The Pioneer" is published by the students of the Manhattan Industrial High
School. Just a glance at this paper makes one feel eager to read it. The many articles
about happenings in the school are so interesting even to outsiders that we feel sure
the students of M. I. H. S. must read and reread every issue of "The Pioneer."
From the David Hale Fanning Trade School for Girls located in Worcester,
Massachusetts, comes a magazine called "School Spiritf, The large number of short
items would catch the eye of a most disinterested reader. The attractive headings at
the beginning of each section of the paper are also a good feature.
In "Voca Graphic," from the New Bedford fMass.j Vocational School, we have
found much that is truly inspiring. The whole book is especially well-organized and
every member of the stafffis doing a commendable piece of work on his particular

lications. Our Trade Tackler Club would like to receive one of every issue, and will
gladly send a free subscription of our own paper in exchange. X
ON READING SHORT STORIES
CFROM THE ENGLISH CLASS?
By Betty Baughman
LITERATURE has given me many happy hours this year, and through the books I met
in my English work, I have made many new and lasting friends. Numerous and vari-
ous were the interests and observations gained through reading and studying short
stories. In fact, so broadened was my view that I decided to compile my ideas into a
single book so that others may share the knowledge and pleasure afforded me.
Book One. The Bible contains that wise adage, "Spare the rod, and spoil the
child." How true this is ! Especially in the case of Elizabeth Meyers, that mischievous,
undisciplined heroine of the "Steamer Child" by Elsie Singmaster. Eliz.abeth's mother,
and her much too lenient father, learned the bitter truth of the above proverb.
Book Two. "A friend in need is a friend indeed." I learned in the story "Ten-
nessee's Partner," by Bret Harte that to the hero friendship is a great thing and is not
affected by either circumstances or surroundings. Although Tennessee was not worthy
of the great love that his partner bestowed upon him, his grim life was more fruitful
and worthwhile because of this unselfish devotion.
Book Tl1I'66. "Dog is man's greatest friend." Many people have opinions con-
trary to this just as did Jacob Enderby in the story "Gulliver, the Great," by Walter
A. Dyer. Jacob hated and feared dogs, but through a series of incidents he learned
that a dog is loving, trustful, brave, and sometimes almost humanly intelligent.
Book FOLIT. "The path of true love never did run smooth." This sounds like
advice to the lovelorn, but I found it really proved in Sir James Barrie's short story,
"Two of Them." The young girl twisted her friend's words until she had an entirely
different meaning from them and would then go into a paroxism of weeping. Upon
this showing of hysteria the young man would protest volubly that he did not mean it
and that she was the finest, loveliest woman in the world. After a fascinating struggle
the story ends happily to exemplify the age-old proverb.
Book Five. "Love thy father and thy mother." Surely you all recognize this
commandment. In "Cree Queery and Mysy Drolly," by Sir James Barrie, the hero, a
poor, broken down, old weaver possessed an inspiring love for his mother. He lied to
her to retain her belief that he was still young and handsome. She, in her blindness,
did not know that her son starved and lived in abject poverty to save her from the
poorhouse. In all my life I never witnessed a love so inspiring yet so hopeless.
Book Six. "Where Love Is, There God Is Also." I know of no more fitting
adage for the moral of Tolstoi's narrative than the title of the very story itself. It tells
about a poor shoemaker, who through trial and sorrow, lost his faith in God. This
suffering and unhappiness helped this lonely man "to End himself." In his search for
truth, he nobly cast his own trouble aside and spent his time reading his Bible and
helping his fellow-men. Gradually and beautifully he regained his lost faith. Love
for his only child had been his undoing, love for mankind was his savior.
This collection of short stories is brief, but to him who wishes to have a fine char-
acter and to find joys and truth, "I bid him look into the lives of men as though into
a mirror and from them take example for himself."
THE CAT CAME BACK
Hy Dorothy Airry
As a usual thing, Mrs. Peck was quite fussy about her dishes being done immedi-
ately after a meal, but tonight the preparation had been so strenuous that her daugh-
ter was allowed to rest a while before starting. Half an hour passed while everyone
discussed matters of general interest. It hadn't seemed that long though, before
Edna's mother made the request that she begin the dishes.
Shaggy, their puny black kitten, strolled in and rubbed around Edna's legs, oc-
casionally mewing loudly, for he was very hungry. After a time the kitten became so
hungry and so disgusted with his selfish, thoughtless mistress that he withdrew after
a little and prepared to search the neighborhood garbage cans for a choice morsel or
Now Edna carelessly piled the dishes from the dining table on a smaller one with-
out either scraping them or watching what she was doing. The youngest member of
the family came toddling into the kitchen caressing an old black fur cuff, but this was
immediately flung away when her father made a somewhat belated entrance.
Just as Edna laid the heavy meat platter atop the tall pile of dishes, an anguished
"Meow!" was heard and two large plates went crashing to the floor, revealing a tuft
of black fur. Associating the two facts, that the kitten was exceedingly hungry and that
she had left meat on some of the plates, Edna felt a guilty shiver pluck at her spine.
Striving to hold back tears she hastened into the living room to ask her mother to
romove the piitifully crushed pet from its china deathbed. The mother, who was most
strongly attached to the ill-fated feline, could not bear to perform the task either.
Conditions seemed to require a man's aid, so Mr. Peck was called in.
A visitor arrived just then, causing a halt for the time being.
Heavens! What was occurring? Every one in the family doubted seriously the
reality of what he saw for calmly, probably well fed by now, Shaggy strolled in
after the newcomer. Father was so upset that he exclaimed, "Well, for the--."
Edna and her mother uncovered their eyes expecting to see mangled corpse, but
instead beheld the kitten healthy as ever, begging to be picked up.
If this were true, what had caused all the excitement? To solve the mystery, Mr.
Peck began to search among the fallen dishes, two cups and a plate were as far as he
got before he let forth a boisterous laugh. Having seen the cat alive, nothing could be
surprising to the family, but curiosity brought them to Mr. Peck's side. Almost im-
mediately they shared in the hearty laughter.
The dishes were removed and the suspense was over and here's my explanation !
No, on second thought I won't tell you.
Figure it out for yourself !
REVIEW OF ASSEMBLIES
By Virginia Keenan
September 27, 1934. The newcomers at G. V. S. had been looking forward
to their first assembly which took place at this time. It was conducted by Miss
Engle, and representatives of all clubs in the school described the activities of their
respective groups. fContinued on next pagel
REVIEW OF ASSEMBLIES Qflontinuedj
NOVeII1ber 2, 1934. In the "Pep Assembly," the girls demonstrated a great
deal of originality, enthusiasm, and interest. The purpose of the assembly was to
prepare the students for the coming election of officers of the Student Council. Cath-
erine Pascal of HJ1 discussed the qualities of a good leader, and Frieda Younghans
of BS1 showed the girls how to correctly mark a ballot.
NOVelI1ber 13, 1934. Under the direction of Mrs. Rich there was presented
a program which emphasized the meaning of Armstice Day.
NOVeIHbe1' 23, 1934. Miss Engle spoke of good habits we should form now
in order to be more successful "on the job." She also announced the several ways in
which our students have done things for other organizations.
NOVe1Hber 28, 1934. It was necessary to have two Thanksgiving Assem-
blies in order to accommodate all students. At one, Rev. John L. Deaton, Pastor of
Christ Lutheran Church, spoke on "Think and Thank," and at the other Rev. O'Con-
nor, Rector of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, talked on the subject, "Thank You."
Both speakers reveiwed the history of Thanksgiving and made us more conscious of
the many things for which all of us should be grateful to God.
Deeelrlber 12, 19344. This assembly gave Miss Engle an opportunity to
speak to us about the bazaar and minstrel show. She asked for the co-operation of the
Deeelllber 20, 1934. At the first Christmas assembly, the much-loved
Christmas carols were sung by the student body, and a few special selections were
rendered by the Glee Club.
Deeelllber 21, 1934. A very impressive Christmas play entitled "The Prince
of Peace at Bethlehem" was present-ed by the Dramatic and Glee Clubs, under the
direction of Miss Wells and Mrs. Mayer.
January 8, 1935. A fashion show was given by the students of the Dress-

THE reader's voice droned on and on. Outside the rumbling of the traffic sank in a
monotonous mumble, dulled by the brick walls of the building.
What would I buy this spring, a coat or a suit? . . . Oh, dear, what is that girl
reading? . . . A navy blue suit would be nice. For my trip to Ohio, too, this summer.
With the skirt and jacket buttoning all the way up the front, like the one I saw up-
town. Those military pockets surely gave it a lot of dash, too . . . VVill that girl never
change the tone of her Voice? It is putting me to sleep . . . I'll have to check up on
that story . . . check . . . that's an idea . . . a check suit . . . perhaps double-
breasted . . . with a monotone coat. Checks always make me feel so vivacious . . . but
with a monotone coat it would not be too lively for town wear or for spectator sports.
Motoring in the country . . . my! by this time that story should be getting exci-
ting . . . wonder what it's about? . . . Hope' the teacher doesn't call on me . . . I wish
I could loaf all day, ride in a big car, have rich-looking clothes . . . like that suit I
saw in O'Neill's window yesterday with the Directoire atmosphere about it. It was so
feminine and appealing with the gracefully flared skirt, wide revers and gay buttons.
I bet I would feel just like Constance Bennett or Janet Gaynor in it. Heavens! I
shall really be asleep soon. I wonder if we will have a test on that story? Tests are
so difficult . . . all those things are hard to remember . . . if you pretend they are a
game it's easier . . . lots of things in life are games . . . work . . . and how to dress.
That three-piece suit I saw in the paper would Win any game anytime. The mannish
topcoat and jaunty jacket always score high today. It's good tactics to look sporting
and charming at the same time. Nice to have that efhcient feeling. My land, this
should be a class in philosophy . . . Oh hum . . . I probably wouldnft bekany good
in that either. Gosh, the way that dog is barking outside, you would think an army
was trying to break in to someone's house! Dogs certainly can make a lot of noise!
'Wonder why they say people like to "put on the dogi' . . . Speaking of dogs reminds
me of that suit I saw at the dog show . . . funny . . . sounds as though the dog had
on the suit. But, it was good-looking . . . with a man-tailored jacket . . . double-
breasted . . . made of men's suit cloth . . . that is, made for wear . . . but, upsetting
all the tailoring by a most feminine and alluring slit in the skirt. I could surely "put
on the dog" in that! That traffic is getting louder all the time . . . city noises are so
jangling. It must be nice to be in the country now, or maybe just driving in a car. I
can just see the suit for such a trip, too. A plain dark colored skirt and jacket with a
gay plaid coat to give that "peppy" feeling. I certainly need it . . . I don't feel so
peppy now. Thank goodness, there goes the bell, I'll have to get that book and
read it to-night. Could never listen intelligently to class reading anyway! Wonder

By Miriam Kautfer
ON April 12, at 44:45 o'clock, if you had turned the dial on your radio to WFBR,
you would have heard Mr. Robert Price interviewing our Principal, Miss Edna Engle.
Mr. Price first talked about the delicious luncheons served in our Tea Room. He

nery, Power Machine, Junior Salesmanship, Tea Room Service, Personal Hygiene.

printed by The Ottmar Mergenthaler School of Printing."
QUESTION: "What are the chances for employment When a girl gr:1duates?,'
ANSWER: "The chances are large. Last year 77 per cent. of all the graduates Were
placed. The co-ordinators, who are teachers in the courses they represent, have a cer-
tain day to co-ordinate. They come in contact with different firms and stores: natu-
rally, they advertise our school. VVhen the employer Wants a girl, he calls us and one
of the Senior girls is sent to fill the position.
Mr. Price thanked Miss Engle, and the interview came to a close. The students
and teachers at the Girls Vocational School are glad that our Principal had this
Opportunity to present to the public, these facts about our school.

Tall, haughty, quiet and proud,
Never brawling, never loud,
This woman goes,
Never taking place in rows
Of neighbors, and her curious kin,

Was once a bandit, young and bold,
But now he has not love nor gold.

Broad of shoulder, lean of flank,
This 'dog reforms a confirmed old crank,
And makes him, so seldom seen,
A lover of dogs, gentle, never mean.

A Partner of Tennessefs
A friend of friends,

Could not tempt him from the beaten path,
He knew little, or nothing of verse nor math
But when the test of tests came round,
We find him loyal, generous and sound.

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drinkg
Words, words, more words in the air,
But not the time to think.
Fashion Flashes through me dashes,
Slang I cannot use,
So we'll pretend we're debutantes
We'll take slang on a cruise. l X
Miss Vanderbilt, I see you're hereg what wear you on your wrist?
A bracelet made of white ermine-Why, such does not exist!
As I would say in my country-Oh gee! Now ain't dat nice?
Those buttons on your tunic blouse, they thrill me to a tee,
They'rc made of all assorted nuts-the aroma has told me.
You might get quite conceited if about you I do talk,
So how about another step-let's peep at Madame Squawk.
She wears a gown of organdie right snug about the hipsg
The red and white checks on the gown match right up with her lips.
A wide red belt adorns the waist, the collar shaped in square,
But the patent leather belt, you know, we see not everywhere.
How about that hat she wears ! A thing it does not lack
Because the brim's down in the front and 'way up in the back.
They call this type a Panama: it has such sweeping lines,
A 'flower-pot crown and a wide black band--By gorsh l Why, all that rhymes l
Will you excuse my frankness?
Let me off my horse so high,
For as a poet I am punk
I cannot tell a "lie,"

Gloves have the art of winning her heart.
Especially a pair of those lovely real kid slip-ons in the very newest shades
of navy, brown, black, and white, or lacy white and cream-colored gloves.
This bracelet is a find,
For the one you have in mind.
An exquisite bracelet of cream bone with adorable little flowers carved
all over it. Just the thing to set off a summer outfit.
Roses are red-violets are blue . .

ON November 7, 1934, over 150 postal cards were mailed to the graduates of the
Girls Vocalional School urging them to come to the annual dinner meeting held No-
vember 12, in the Tea Room of the Girls Vocational School. Seventy-eight girls ac-
cepted and were present. All trades were represented. Over fifty of the girls paid
their annual dues at this meeting.
The 'dinner was followed by a short business meeting. The following officers were
elected for the years 1934-1935:
President-Miss Edna McCabe QHygiene, 19341. Miss McCabe is now em-
ployed at the Hilton-Court Beauty Shop.
Vice-President-Miss Margaret McGarry QHygiene, 19321 Miss McGarry has
been with the National Wave Studio for several years.
Treasurer-Miss Ruth Gura CJunior Oilice Practice, 19341. Miss Gura is now
with the Postal Telegraph Co.

Miss Virginia 'llxaLcher, Employment Manager of Hochschild Kohn and Com-
pany, was the speaker for the evening. Her message to the girls was practical and
encouraged them to further accomplishment. Her snappy appearance and pleasing
manner, together with her complete understanding of what is required of the girl on
the job. was in itself an inspiration. We wish to extend a vote of thanks to Miss
Thatcher for the evening's entertainment.
The excellent dinner was served by Miss Phillips of the night school, with the
assistance of her class. '
The Hygiene Class of 1934 is planning to meet as a separate unit with the hope
of working out a project which will make possible an annual contribution to the
Girls Vocational School library. This is a splendid idea and we hope other classes
will follow their good example.
Do you know that many of our members have secured better positions by attend-
ing Alumnae meetings? Here girls meet and discuss trade problems. They tell of
jobs about to become vacant and of dismissals and marriages. This gives the alert
girl her opportunity. fContinued on next pagej

OCtOb6r 23, 19344. The first meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association of
Girls Vocational School was held on October 23, 1934. President Purdy called the
meeting to order. He mentioned what had been accomplished in one year but said
that much was yet to be done. Mrs. Frances J. Civis gave an inspiring talk on the
"Value of Music in the Vocational School." In her talk she said that Music, Art,
and Physical Education contribute immensely toward a background of cultural
education. The soloist for the evening was Mrs.,Mary Eggers Purdy, who was ac-
companied on the piano by Miss Wells. -

bazaar at Girls Vocational School. The Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Wells,
sang four selections of Christmas music.
January 22, 1935. Owing to the inclement weather, there were only nine
parents present. There were more than twice that number of teachers, however. The
guest speaker for the evening was Dr. J. Carey Taylor. He spoke on "Problems
Facing Education Today"-the problems of meeting individual boys' and girls'
needs and teaching them how to live after leaving school. He outlined briefly the
classification of pupils in elementary and secondary schools and stressed the impor-
tance of music and art. Miss Engle thanked those present for their loyalty to the
Parent-Teacher Association. The attendance prize of one dollar was won by Mr.

guest speaker. He lectured on his "Travels in the Far West." He showed us a series
of iilms that he made during his travels. Miss Ellen Cook recited "White Lilacs" and
"An Italian at a Baseball Game." The prize for the evening was won by Mrs. M.
ll'Til1'Cl'1 26, 1935. The guest speaker at the March meeting was Dr. Esther
Richards of Phipps Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital. She spoke on "Varying Abilities
Among School Childrenf, Dr. Richards said that "education enables individuals to
grow gradually and to make progressive adaptations to life," and "vocational schools
try to give children what they enjoy and at the same time train them toward what
is best adapted to their needs." The soloists for the evening were Mr. Benner Wright
and Mr. .lack Morrison. They were accompanied on the piano by Miss Margaret
Leight. Miss Engle spoke about our operetta and urged everyone to attend. She
announced the Regional Meeting, and asked the parents to send in their names as
there was a limited supply of tickets. The attendance prize was won by Mrs. Antoi-
April 23, 1935. At the April meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association there
were approximately eighty persons in attendance. Our guest speaker was Miss Nina
Russell, of the Personnel Department of the Gas and Electric Company. She talked
on "The Value. of Personality in Business" and explained the difficulties that face
our young people going into business today. Some of the qualities necessary to secure
positions are: appearance, manner of approach, speech, self-confidence, good health,
intelligence, characteristics on job, character, ability to get along with other people,
self-control, application in one's work, right attitude toward work, diligence, co-
operation, and sympathy. Miss Engle thanked Miss Russell for her splendid talk
and said that 62 per cent. of the people who lose their jobs, do so because they lack
the qualities she had mentioned. A letter from Dr. Wegein was read in which he ac-
cepted our invitation to be our guest speaker at the May meeting. Mr. E. R. Tucker
drew the prize for the evening.
