SHOES TO WEAR
There's a road that leads to Girldom,
Let's traverse it hand in hand,
Come with me down paths of memory,
Follow footprints in the sand,
Wander back to time out yonder-
Live again those precious years,
Childhood's joy with all its laughter,
Childhood's pangs and girlish tears,
Baby shoes, the sands recapture,
Tiny steps and none too sure-
Butterflies-perhaps a bunny,
Little feet were sure to lure,
Mother often interceded,
Guiding you to paths aright,
Stopped with you along the journey,
Sang you lullabies at night,
Here, perhaps, you've grown older-
Steps are firmer, strong and true,
Here I fear you've lost your slipper,
Mother told you 'twouldn't do-
Pumps were never made for walking,
But for dancing-that alone,
Why you're limping, my poor darling,
You've stepped upon a stone,
Girlish steps upon the pathway,
Treading down the years of life-
Roads of happiness and sunshine,
Roads sometimes of grief and strife,
Roads that meet a sudden ending, f
1 -953554113 1
Roads that never make a turn,
You'll encounter on the journey,
Shoes to wear, they must be stern!

I understand that you are go-

year. I am very glad to send you
a brief statement to be included

opinion is held not only by us in Baltimore, but it is also voiced by visitors from
other cities who have an opportunity to see the work.

wishes for your future success.

MY DEAR G1RLs:
I want to wish each one of you hap-
piness and success in the vocation in
which you are graduating. We have tried
to give you experiences during your school
life that would help you to meet the prob-
lems which you will face in life.
I hope that you will continue your
education after you leave The Girls Voca-

occupation. Remember that "the secret of success is constancy of purpose."
I hope that you enjoyed school and that you will take with you many pleasant
memories of your school associations and activities. The school stands ready, at all
times, to help you solve your problems. A hearty welcome always awaits you at your

The Woman I Wont To Be
There are many great women in history I could wish to be. Mary of Scots-
poor, brave Mary who stood with her face to the guillotine and refused to trade the
birthright of her heirs for the right to live. Jeanne d'Arc-the glorious, gallant
Maid of Orleans who fired the fainting hearts of the French and swept them to
glorious victory! Florence Nightingale who matched derision and ridicule with
courage and strength and made nursing the fine profession it is today. There is
Louisa May Alcott-gentle Louisa, whose immortal stories of American home life
were written when her body was racked with illness and her soul with loneliness.
And Marie Curie, whose wonderful discovery of radium will be a boon to humanity,
forever. I could Fill pages about these women who have carried the banners of my
sex to the highest places. But I -I cannot be any of them. I can just be myself. The
woman I wan! to be is the best I can get from that "self." I want to enter whole-
heartedly into my chosen profession and make myself worthy of it. I want to sur-
round myself with friends who will love me and need me. I want everything I say
and do to be kindly, fair and charitable, and though there may be no shining
aura around my name, perhaps someday--someone may wish to be the zmmmz
IT WILL NOT MATTER
It will not matter much the task I shall not count my pay in coin
That life will set for me, But find at end of day,
If I can bring my fullest self That I am richest only when
The "woman I may ben- I've been just "all I may."

CLASS FLOWER CLASS MOTTO
Tea Rose "Ever Onward"
Advisers, RUTH DUNWOODY, HELEN BATT
We, the Seniors of Girls Vocational School, do make and publish, this, our last
will and testament-to those we love and to whom we intrust our feelings for
knowing and enjoying their acquaintance, we do not leave those things that are
animate for they are not at our disposal, but those things that we feel are greater
because of their significance we now devise and bequeath.
Item: We leave to those who have come to appreciate fine arts, fine music, and
the beauty of life surrounding them with whatever they may need, as the strain of
"Schubert's Serenade," the faint fragrance of the rose, and the glorious riot of the
sunset. We bequeath to them, lines of Shakespearean plays, paintings of the loveli-
ness of clouds, trees, and birds, we leave a life to them bursting with all these fine
things so that they may be content.
Item: To those who love inspiring sports of rivalry, we leave the undaunted
confidence in their own skill in sportsmanship and the sufficiency of strength to
accept defeat gracefully. We leave to them courage,-courage to listen and to face
-he applause for the other fellow. We leave strength to them so that they can play
the game well and undefeated.
Item: To those who love merriment, we leave lilting songs, so that they may
dance and sing without let or hindrance or without any care, and we give to said
people, good cheer, wit and humor, and the company of jolly fellows to laugh and
joke with, with all the happiness of their youth.
Item: To those whose lives are brimming with the harmony of peace and con-
cord, we leave additional satisfaction and ease so that their homes will be filled with
all this. We leave to them, the sweetness of early dew, the song of the nightingale,
and the dainty bloom of the honeysuckle, all these things are to add a touch of
beauty to their quiet lives.
Item: And to those who have given us each day of their own strength of body,
mind, and spirit, and who have unselfishly helped us over the roughened spots, we
bequeath all the goodness that has resulted from their teachings, to last them
through the rest of their lives.

JUNIGR CLASS HISTORY
Now when the Class of Thirty-nine
First entered G. V. S.,
The school was new, its methods too,
But love it? You have guessed.
The opportunities were there,
A faculty sincereg
The students met, their spirit set,
Success was surely near.
First came their choice of oflicersg
Now just which is the best?
Then Mildred Stricker, President,
Her name led all the rest.
Ruth Sanford, then, Vice-President,
Mae Koester, Secretaryg
And Sylvia Johansen
A Treasurer's name to carry.
October brought gay I-lallowe'en,
Whcuse name suggests a danceg
So to the gym went everyone-
You should have seen them prance.
Prizes, refreshments, fun galore,
For every junior there,
And finally the floor show treat,
Now miss it-did you dare?
Assemblies, clubs, activities
Of daily school routine,
Class meeting with year's plans laid down,
November's work is seen.
And next in store, a novel dance,
Plus one with Santa Clausg
But when the cakes with candles came,
Then, oh, my! what applause!
Please Turn 'l'lw Pagi-
A new idea was introduced
For january's treat,
A Pep Assembly was put on,
Another Juniors' feat.
Old Snitzelbank was sung with words
That brought the spirit out,
A humorous play was introduced,
With many a laugh and shout.
The junior-Senior dance was held
At famous Levering Hall,
Where everyone came dressed to kill,
Like Cinderella's Ball.
The glowing of the lireplaceg
The fifteen stags in line,
The music of jack's orchestra,
just made the night divine.
Mid-year now meant new officers
To take the others' place,
So Madeline Wilhelm, President,
Was first within the race.
And Catherine Saul, Vice-President,
Ruth Holden, Treasurer,
Hortense Grifhn for Secretary,
To name them is a pleasure.
The Junior-Senior basketball-
This game did tell the tale,
The honors to the Seniors went,
Class spirit did prevail.
St. Patrick's day brought on a dance,
All hopped to Cityis bandg
The entertainers gave a show,
And did they get a hand?
In place of tickets, hats were bought,
Good things were served to eat,
This dance goes down on record as
A dance that can't be beat.
Now April turned the thoughts of all
To plans for May Play Day,
A pretty Junior must be named
To be the Queen of May.
The Maypole dance was watched with glee,
The Queen sat on her throneg
All juniors in the games took part,
And joy stood out alone.
So off we hiked one june day bright,
All answering to the call,
The eats, the games, the rompings, showed
The good time had by all.
And as our junior Days conclude,
As all good things must end,
A forward, anxious glance is cast,
What Senior days may send?

THE BIG APPLE OR MODERN
One hundred years ago or so,
They tell the story ye!
'Twas danced within these very grounds
The graceful mi1z11e!.'
And girls were shy in rustling silks,
And men were brave in z1'ig.f.'
And no one danced to lively tunes-
The such that calls for jigr:
The coachman waited at the door,
For midnight then was lrzfe
And daughters said goodbye in haste
Nor tarried at the gale:
Long years have passed but still at heart
XVe're really just the same
And women wear the rustling silks
The where to place the blame?
The men they don a different dress
For trousers at the ,e7I6'l!J'.
Wfould shock us all in 58-
Our ladies fail to plef1.re.'
We dance today the lively tunes,
Nor scarce came home at three:
Yet still we hurry past the gate--
That's quite as it should bei
Each year has brought a newer dance
The old ones youth will lemfe:
But for this dance we dance today,
Let's blame our Mother Eve.

IN THE DAYS OF AULD LANG SYNE
.sf .95 .xx, A
They say the place to find one's self is in God's House. There the Almighty may
hear from the lips of His people all that weighs heavily on their hearts, there in the
silence of the Cathedral with the organ-man may find peace!
But I, who had sought peace in God's Great House and tried to gather all the
Holiness present there around me, have somehow failed. Long I had prayed and
fervently, yet my poor heart was choked and aching. I had not found peace there.
Alone I did creep from that massive stone structure-God's House empty-
handed. God was not there. I had not seen him, felt him. Heartsick and weary I fled
the steps-the sanctuary that sheltered the worshipers-unhealed, denied!
No longer did mind control body. I knew not whither I went. Blindly I tan-
away from the crowded streets, the noise, the city-until my feet felt earth and grass
and as suddenly the world changed-Behind hot pavements, pressing crowds, tumult,
closeness of buildings, blackened spires, yes, of the cathedral-all, a part of the life
I had lead-choking me to numbness. Even as I turned about, the better to find
my going, hot breezes fanned my forehead, stifling me. They smelled of smoke and
city streets. I shuddered, turning my back against it, facing an atmosphere filled
with the sweetness of flowers-the coolness of dew. So did I continue to walk until
finding that weariness of body had soothed weariness of soul, I stopped to rest and
take notice of my surroundings. Around me trees-near, a brook-above me, azure
sky-and under my feet, green moss.
Then, as if a hand had torn away my veil of misery I wept and fell to my knees.
Those trees, were they not the pipes of the organ,-the larger ones-and the
smaller, those straight and close together, harp of the winds? The breezes, stirring
clouds, whispering music yet caught by human fingers, and the brook, had it not the
voice of the singers, acolytes with clear tenor? And the moss upon which I was
kneeling, was it not the green carpet that so beautifies the church aisle-the blue
sky dotted with Heecy whitness, was it not the great roof? And the fragrant odor of
honeysuckle, holy incense?
Yes, here, indeed, was God's House, the organ, the altar, space for kneeling.
Leaving it I had but entered it again, God's House, with all its glory! Evident in
every leaf, in every blade of grass, a church house more beautiful than man had
Happiness unspeakable filled me. My heart was lightened-my burden lifted-
God came down the aisle to touch my shoulder.

Do you have a room,-one that you can call your very own? A place where you
may find solitude,-may be alone, dream those golden dreams of fancy, look far off
into the future, ponder over happenings of the day, wondering why you did this or
that or failed to do some little thing? How unimportant it seemed at the time! How
you suddenly realize it would have mattered-would have made someone else
Do you have a room-a place where you can express your own personality?
The pictures, your choosing. Crisp curtains caught back to reveal the winding road-
way or better, to see the flowers gaily blooming outside the window. A boudoir chair
of chintzg its petticoat immaculate. Fluffy little pillows on the bed, all so un-
conscious of the part they play in your life.
Have you not lain awake nights, listening to the rain's stacatto-the wind's
shrill howling through the trees which cast grotesque shadows on the wall, content
within the warmth of "your', room? A room's a haven of refuge-Shelter!
Great women have often sought the seclusion of their rooms, shutting out the
world and facing their greatest problems alone. Such was the practice of Louisa
Alcott. She had "her room,"-loved it, sought it. Today it stands much as it was
when the writer lived. The desk by the window, looking down upon the spacious
grounds of Orchard House-The spray of purple Iris Amy painted for her beloved
sister when "jo" was ill and Amy too poor to buy flowers-"I like to think of my
mind as a room in disorder and I had to put each thing in place," wrote Louisa Al-
cott. She tried hard to dust out the cobwebs and put each little thing in its proper
place but somehow cobwebs got in. 'Tm not a good housekeeper," Miss Alcott
A room's an essential of girlhood. One cannot "grow" well without one. There
must be space-space to live in, breathe in, think in. Life becomes too crowded!
Yes, every girl should have a room to "live" in.
There is a sudden stillness in the air. The gray sky is dotted with white flakes
that float and drift to lie on the fast shrinking earth. Slowly, the ice forms, smooth-
ing out the rugged edges of the land into soft roundness. The sun has grown dim
and out of place in these cold, barren regions. The world is devoid of life, except
for the snow birds that haunt the empty fields in great flocks. The drone of the wind
rises with harsh bitterness, whipping around dark and gaunt trees. Winter has come
and is ruling the barren lands with a relentless force.
The long frozen days slowly drag by and as they near their end the snow be-
comes slush and the river foams by carrying huge lumps of fast melting ice. The
earth has turned to slacken her rigid joints and yield to thousands of rivulets that
cover her surface. Then, there is a sweetness in the air and with a few warm rain
drops the word of spring has come. Soon the boughs of the trees are dotted with tiny
green bits of life and the newly arrived red-breasted bird waits to build a nest in
their foliage. Tiny stems push through the soft coating of earth and turn their buds
upward to catch the warmth of the sun that soon they may cover the plains with a
profusion of blossoms.
The sky has grown azure blue and the gentlest of breezes fan the dark clouds
into Heecy whiteness. The population of flowers increases with the lengthening days.
Their lovely blossoms carpet the Helds and fill the air with fragrance. It is a dif-
ferent world, warm and happy and filled with new inspiring life:
Spring is glorious! Her magical beauty rules Heaven and Earth with a gentle
WHAT CHRISTMAS REALLY MEANS
"Christmas isn't for what you get,"
Said wee Jeanetteg
"It's for what you give"
Went on the mite.
"If Christ would talk to you to night,
I think He'd say-
That He wished us to-
Keep it that way."
I can give the baby a day of fun,
I can take my plant to that poor lame boy,
I can do Motherls errands-every one,
And my old kite 1 can mend for Roy,
When this busy day is done and I creep to bed,
I'll remember I have no toys,
But I'll have one thing-lots of joys
Running through my tired head.
It is the way of life to leave unsaid as the days go by, many of the lovely things
we could say-to leave undone, many of the things we have desired to do-to fail
to show and express appreciation for the many things given us in life and to realize
fully just how much what we have means to us until it is gone. And so it is that we
of Girls Vocational School who are going from our Alma Mater this year, turn our
thoughts backward with a more serious vein and as in life, when our two short years
of school have ended, recount the happy days and the benefits we have received.
It is with a feeling of sadness that we find those two years ended. As juniors we
looked forward with great anticipation to graduation. Two years' time was too long
for the impetuous girlish mind to compass. But two years have passed and quickly,
and we are loathe to see them go. Now, we must say Farewell. Somehow Farewell
means a summing up--a totaling of happy school days and work well done,-a
meek declaration of the love we bear the students and the faculty of G. V. S.
Let us not say Farewell-Let us go forth into the world confident in our prepara-
tion, realizing that we have a beginning upon which we can build-must build! Nor
must we forget that principle embodied in our own Student Council "the behavior
of the individual, governs the behavior of the mass." And let us then take with us
so much of Girls Vocational School that we shall through our own selves meet with
it each day in others. We need not then say-Farewell!
SENIOR CLASS OF '38 QSIGNEDJ
A WASTE OF WORDS
Farewells are such a waste of words
They carry tears and sighs
They're filled with gloom and heavy hearts
Why can't they be denied?
We cannot say farewell
For each day we shall find
We've brought so much of school with us
. We canlt leave it behind!
