ISSUE OF THE TRADE TACKLER T0 You
You have often stepped from your role as principal
to listen patiently to our cares and woes. You have taken us out of
chaos, nurtured us for two years, and have brought us to the thresh-
old of our careers. There is not one of us who does not feel prepared
to meet the future, confident of success. You have given us the wisest
of counsels and, because of your untiring' efforts, have urged us on to
higher and more steadfast purposes.
Now that We are ready to leave Girls Vocational School, we wish
to express in our humble Way our sincere appreciation for all you
have done. In parting we shall not say "Good-bye, llliss Englef but

THE VOICE OF THE PAST
By Ina Long
A seer from the past came
To me one wintry night.
He was old, partly lame,
And his hair was pure, snow whit.e.
He spoke in a low and forceful ton
This voice of the past.
His eyes big and brightly shone
'Round the room they were cast.
He looked about, then gazed at meg
I felt a shock and shuddered.
His voice, the rumble of the sea
The words the strangest uttered.
'4Ah,,' said he, in a voice of woe
Which chilled me thru' and thrua.
"Your school-day joys are over
And I suppose you're feeling blue.
I looked and star
"Thinking back you'll remember
The day of your first test
When you entered in September
Into the family of G. V. S.
C "Then you,ll think of the teachers, too,
They were a blessing to you then,
For you were strange and new
And didn't know where to begin.
"Two years have passed and your time
It is time to go almost-
So, with memories Hll your cup
And to G. V. S. give this toast.

THE JUNIOR CLASS OF GIRLS VOCATIONAL SCHOOL
AN OPEN LETTER Fizom A JUNIOR
GIRLS VOCATIONAL SCHOOL
JACKSON PLACE and FAIRMOUNT AVENUE
Dear Joan, BIRD' 10, 1936
Your cousin Eve visited me the other day, and in the course of our conver-
sation she told me that you are thinking of entering the Girls Vocational
School in the fall. Of course I approve heartily of that, so she asked me to
write you all about it. I can hardly hope to accomplish so much in just one
letter, but I shall try to give you some idea ot' the varied activities at dear old
G. V. S. by recounting some of the past year's uhigh spotsf,
You,ve been told about the trades and related subjects, I'm sure, so I
won't go over that. Since "all work and no play makes Jill a dull studentf,
we,ve enjoyed our extra-curricular activities to the fullest extent.
We first learned about the school and its routine at the Freshmen's
Assembly. We gained much valuable information at that meeting, and be-
lieve me, there hasn't been a single one since which hasn't been equally inter-
esting and worth-while. But more of that later!
Almost immediately the annual election of school officers occupied ollr
attention. Excitement ran high for several weeksg heated campaigns were
conducted by both partiesg local election laws were studied carefully, and
when the last ballots were counted Emma Iachini, a dressmaker, had been
selected as our new president, Dorothy McCann, a business junior, became
vice-president, and Clara Swiss of the hygiene class took up her duties as
In the meantime a number of clubs had been organized and we Juniors
were soon represented in all of them-the Glee Club, and those organized
for knitting, tap dancing, art, photography, and archery. In addition there
AN OPEN LE'FTER FROM A JUNIOR fContinuedj
was a Dramatic Club and one which carried on the work of the Trade
Tackler. For the first time a Junior Club .was formed and officers were
elected. Dorothy Tucker was our president, and Helen Phillips, the secretary
and treasurer. We held regular business meetings, and during the winter the
Monday skating parties at the Sports Center were very popular. Our enter-
tainment in the spring, too, was very well received. I believe a Junior Club
will be a permanent part of G. V. S. hereafter.
Most people associate December with Christmas, there at G. V. S. it means
RAZAAR. December 6 was the date, and how we all labored! It was great
fun, though, and the school library has profited handsomely.
We had had a number of assemblies during this time. At one of them
the school was presented a handsome bronze plaque for the best safety
exhibit displayed in the senior high school competition. Speakers such as
Mr. Charles W. Sylvester and Dr. Carey Taylor addressed us, and at the
Thanksgiving assemblies "The Maker of Dreams" was presented by the
Dramatic Club. The lovely tableaux provided us with a Christmas entertain-
ment that we shall long remember.
Even our parents come to school willingly at G. V. S. There is a Parent-
Teacher Association that has drawn them out once every month and fine
programs were planned. Mayor Jackson addressed the October gathering.
Further opportunity for knowing the school was provided on the evening
of November 149 when we held "Open Housef' I was amazed at the number
of visitors who responded to our invitation.
Leap Year and valentines certainly seem to belong with each other,
and so, the Student Council held a Valentine Tea Dance-and a large number
of Juniors went, danced and had an altogether enjoyable afternoon.
Again we were thrilled when the haughty Seniors invited us to attend
their dance held at Iievering Hall on March 6. It was a charming affair,
and again I was proud to be a member of the student body of such a school.
Things were comparatively quiet after that while preparations went for-
ward for the operetta, "Miss Cherry Blossom," given by the Glee Club,
under Mrs. Hill's direction. Such gorgeous music, such lovely girls, and such
handsome men! Eve tells me that you were in the audience, so I won't rave
any more but I am sure you agree that it was a big success.
The Seniors, of course, occupied the spotlight for most of the remainder
of the term, but we took a keen interest in their plans for the Prom, the
outing and finally for Commencement. It hardly seemed possible that another
school year had ended. Have I bored you with all this? I do hope not, for
I should like so much to have you with us when G. V. S. again opens its doors
in September. Sincerely yours,
EDITOR,S NoTE:- This letter was compiled by the members of DJ-2 with
each girl contributing.
FASHIONS IN F UNNY PAPERS
By Clementine Fertitta
THE OTHER NIGHT I had just finished reading the comics when I decided to
go to bed. It wasn't long before I began to view again the characters that
appear in the funny papers. This time it was in a dream, and each character
was boasting of some particular style that she was featuring.
Tillie the Toiler was about to go for a spin in one of those beautiful cars
that are always waiting for Tillie to jump in. She was wearing a white sport
dress with pleats in the shoulders, and at the upper part of her arm were more
pleats. The collar was very mannish and for some reason or other our dainty
Tillie looked attractive in this type of a collar. She paused to look in a
mirror as she placed her hands in the pocket at the hips. She remarked about
the way the pleats in the skirt were setg these pleats start at the pockets
and end at the hemline. As the door-bell rings Tillie grabbed her dark acces-
sories and vanished.
To take her place was another charming miss. VVinnie Wiukle was ready
to dash off to one of those gay parties with some of the friends of lXIr.
Cutting's daughter. Her black dress had a high neckline in the front, but
the back was quite different. The rolled neckline in the front gave the added
touch of sport that was needed for the unsophisticated personality Miss
Winkle would portray that evening. The collar and the cuffs matched the
gold belt. Halfway down the front of the gown was a row of small, black
covered buttons. The wide skirt added to Winnie Winkle's gracefulness.
Winnie,s escort was so proud of his new evening vest that he insisted on
taking off his dinner jacket just once more. This vest was backless except
for the straps that were arranged suspender fashion. The front had short-
ening and lengthening tabs.
As they entered the house where the party was being given, this gentle-
man was still explaining the long salestalk given by the man when he bought
the suit. In concluding he added that the dandies were sporting colored satins
to match their boutonnieres. Is there any wonder that Winnie was glad to
dodge her boring escort as soon as possible? But she also dodged my sight
because I dreamed of her no more.
ON HAVING Too MANY SISTERS
By Mary Bare
"Low: THY SISTERS and brothers." How can one live up to this when one has
eight sisters? Especially when each insists that you lend her this or give
Picture yourself about ready to dress for a very important occasion.
You have finished your bath, are partly dressed, and you turn to enter your
ON HAVING 'roo MANY S1s'rERs QContinuedj
closet to take a certain dress in which you think you look your best. Sud-
denly, out of a clear blue sky, the dress has vanished. After a frantic search
you finally discover that one of your sisters is Ndolled up', in your dress.
NVith dismay you realize that this is the disadvantage of having a sister
the same size as you. You select another dress not nearly so pretty as your
first choice. You slip it on, but the neck line is not flattering. A pin would
look lovely there. Cheered by the idea you go to the dressing table knowing
just the one you want. Alas! another sister has taken proud possession of
it for a night. A string of beads has to be substituted. The effect these create
is not so complimentary, but you are now practically dressed and try to
keep calm and begin to arrange your hair. Queer though you had it waved,
the curls do not fall into place. A thought! The tiny clip that matches the
necklace is just the thing. Yes, your younger sister departed with that an
hour ago. Again you bite your lip and squint your eyes to keep the tears
away. At least you can use some of your new and expensive perfume. The
bottle is hidden away in your bureau. You cannot find it, so you call to
Mother. Mother softly explains that the children were straightening the
room and accidently spilled all the contents of the bottle. Now you want to
cry! Instead you take a deep breath, for if the tears start to fall you will
muss your face on which you have taken so many pains.
A last look in the mirror is not very reassuring after spending two
hours getting dressed.
As you slowly descend the stairs with a lost and disgusted feeling, you
realize the tragedy of having too many sisters.
STREET CARS WCJULD BE PERFECT IF:
More knee space and comfortable seats were provided.
A three-piece orchestra were on the platform to play favorite numbers.
An usher were there t.o show us to our place.
There were Hat escalators so that one would not be jerked when the car started.
Motormen knew each individual so he could awaken the rider at his destination.
Street car temperatures were 700 or above.
Street cars never became crowded.
Hot chocolate were served and peanuts and candy were sold.
Cars were always on time.
The car took one directly to his door.
It never passed one by.

THE ROMANCE OF A DANCE
By Vera Mossman
The gay frock of gold that I wore to the dance, was a promise of sophistica-
tion, and a step towards romance,
The shirred satin collar of pussy-willow design, stood up in the back in a
The shirred bloused effect, concluded at the waist, and the back that wasn't
there was almost a disgrace,
The flared skirt fitted tightly at the hips, my dear, and to bend over too sud-
denly would mean disaster, I fear.
Bly toes twinkled merrily in sandles minus the toes, and the bare heel I dis-
played, why it nearly froze!
Six thin straps, buckling on the side, were not only unique, but the height
of my pride.
VVhile of my cup of punch I was sipping a bit, I was invited to twirl, by a
cute little trick!
He fetched me my bag of mellow gold crepe, and while he was gone, I indulged
in the cake.
Upon his appearance, I opened the flap of my bag, and took out my puf
attached to what he called a flag,
It was really a chiffon hanky, ever so long, I picked up in fair London, for
little more than a song.
While dancing, the conversation was sort of dull, and I noticed a gown of
chiffon from halter to toe,
The back I Won't mention, for they will never know that her bareness was hid-
den by an enormous string bow.
Another creation that made me sigh, was of pale blue matelasse with a back-
wards jacket of deep pearl grey,
The top of the jacket wore a flower or two, and the short skirt in front, is
now ultra new.
The back of the girl showed from the slit of the jacket, and the buttons
thereon resembled the ears of a rabbit,
Her curls she had piled away up on high, "A good nest forthe birdies," right then
said and thought I!
But time was passing, and it was soon time to go, and my partner shyly
remarked that he hated parting sog
He wrapped my gold cape about me, while I tied it in front, and again on the
side, in style quite elegant.
He saw me to my door, in a brand new limousine, his promise to call inspired
me to dream.
The gay frock of gold that I wore to the dance, decked me in sophistication,
and brought me romance.
THE MYSTERY OF Mas. PETER!
By Anna M anzo
Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,
Had a Wife, but eouldn't keep her-
Have you ever wondered why?
I know you have, and so have I
This startling fact caused me confu-
I thought of this, as a solution:
Perhaps Mrs. Peter was fond of fash-
And she drove her poor husband
Into days of distraction,
VVorrying over her many bills
From dresses she bought,
That she claimed gave her thrills.
"VVhat,s this P" he demanded
One night at eight thirty?
Shaking a bill at her madly
In hands grubby and dirty.
"Why dearf' she replied, from her
seat in the rocker,
"You 1'emember the dress
That was designed by lNIainhocher,
The skirt wrapped to the left
And the bodice to the right,
The material that was used
I'll admit was too bright.
The short left sleeve
VVas of satin-faced crepe,
And ended in a train-
Oh dear, Pvc run out of tape !"
t'And what did you buy at this par-
VVl1en you went after paint
For the guest bedroom door?"
"A lovely black suit
IVith stitching on the flaps,
Darling, you know I couldn't re
'6Bills, bills, I'm going mad,
If you ever buy on credit again
Youall regret it, by Gad !"
And with this declaration
He stormed off to bed
With visions of the poorhouse
Filling his head.
The next day at 10:00
The postman arrived
VVith a new fashion book
And was quite surprised
When she told him to take back
VVhat he had brought,
Her husband was due,
And then she'd get caught!
Everything went fine,
Till, one day in December
When, "I haven't any clothesf,
She suddenly remembered.
Down to the clothes store
She strode very briskly
Buying furs and dresses, oh, so riskily
And all this on credit she foolishly
And late that night
With her husband she fought.
He yelled and she wept
Till the wee hours of morn,
But her baggage was packed
And ready by dawn.
Poor Mrs. Peter was out in the cold
'Cause she didn't heed
What her husband foretold.
Alas! Mrs. Peter,
The pumkin eater's wife,
Led, in my opinion,
A very horrid life.
Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater
Had a wife but couldn't keep her,
,Cause she was extravagant
And he without pity,
Sent her straight back to her native

THE MEMBERS of the Art Club, under the supervision of Miss Ritter, have had
many interesting experiences this year, both in visits to the various art galler-
ies in the city and in the construction of artistic material in the school art room.
Among some of the projects of the club was the designing of the backdrops
for the Dressmaker's Fashion Show, the Minstrel Show and the play "Maker
of Dreams." The members have made posters for various school activities
throughout the year. In addition, the different art forms from paintings, draw-
ings, and charcoal sketches to tapestry work have been studied.
KNITTING AND NEEDLECRAFT CLUB
THE PURPOSE of this club is to provide a meeting place and instruction for
those interested in knitting or crocheting. During the year the members have
made suits, sweaters, pocketbooks and many other useful articles. Some girls
have made bedspreads, scarfs, doilies, and collar and cuff sets. They have held
several exhibits of their work which has been of great interest to the school.
The supervisors, Mrs. Slade and Mrs. Willis, have taught the girls many
new and intricate stitches and aided them in making many attractive garments.
THE CAMERA CLUB, under the guidance of Miss Hedeman, proved both instruc-
tive and enjoyable. The girls learned the correct method of focusing the camera,
how to take time exposures, and how to develop negatives and prints. Pictures
were taken of many phases of school life. Some of the excellent work of this
club is reproduced in this issue of the Trade Tackler.
VOCATIONAL ENTERED the field of competitive basketball this year. Although
the players were limited in preparation and had to go to School No. 13 in
order to practice, their determination and persistency proved that they were
intensely interested. Six games were played. Five of these were lost but only
after giving the opposing sextet a good fight. VVe know that the power of the
basketball team will grow in future years.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB, under the direction of Mrs. Mayer, presented the Min-
strel Show at the annual bazaar. The most interesting presentation was "The
Maker of Dreams," Oliphant Down's fantastic play dealing with the love tangle
of two young people. Anna Kruger effectively and understandingly played Pier-
ette and Julia Scrupska gave Pierrot the right note of foolish and giddy phi-
landering. It may easily be said that Shirley Katz was a natural maker of
THE GLEE CLUB
THE GLEE CLUB has played a thoroughly interesting part in the school ac-
tivities. Under the direction of Mrs. Hill, a new member of our faculty, the
club has participated in several assemblies, particularly the Christmas one, at
which they sang three-part selections of beautiful Christmas carols. Their
broadcast over WCAO on March 27 made the school quite proud of them. The
girls, singing at the lNIarch P.-T. A. meeting made the parents happy to know
that the school has such a fine club.
The outstanding event of the club was the operetta, "Miss Cherry Blos-
som," given at Clifton Park Junior High School on April 3. This is the first G.
V. S. operetta in which there were male voices. Special music for the commence-
ment was the final work of the year for this outstanding group.
JUNIOR CLUB .
THE JUNIOR CLUB was organized in September 1935. The purpose of the club
is to help the junior classes to become better acquainted with each other and
give them the opportunity to enjoy various social functions. Mrs. Batt, Miss
Lewis, and Miss Swift, the advisers, with a combined committee of representa-
tives from each class, accomplished the aim through social gatherings, a tea
dance, hiking, and ice skating.
THE TAP CLUB was organized several years ago in our school by the present
instructor, llliss Pruss. It has a membership of almost one hundred girls who
have been learning many types of tap dancing steps and routines. The club
offers a recreational value as well as entertainment.
The I'I1CHlbC1'S gave an interesting assembly and participated in the program
for the March P.-T. A. meeting.

A PHYSICALLY STRONG Bom' is one that enables us to meet the demands of our
environment. Tumbling, perhaps more than any other sport, embodies the
primitive exercising of jumping, climbing, running, pushing, and rolling. It
is very helpful because it develops the large muscles of the trunk. In order to
learn to tumble one need not be exceedingly strong, but one should be agile and
have a perfectly controlled form. Agility implies adequate strength, control
implies grace. Tumbling is indeed a pleasant activity, and as it requires willing-
ness instead of skill, anyone can enjoy this fo1'm of exercise.

Aucnmu' was introduced to our school last fall. Although the girls had to go
out to Clifton Park in order to practice, each afternoon found many girls en-

has proved a popular form of diversion during the autumn and spring seasons.

class. Every girl who was admitted took advantage of this opportunity and
enjoyed swimming very much.
