Whitney to the school which bears her name DEDICATION With deep appreciation We, the seniors of the Whitney High School for Girls, Hoping that we may be able to follow her pattern, Dedicate this, our annual, To Harriet Whitney, who through courage and wisdom Achieved the goal she wished. Harriet Whitney lived a long and noble life. She was born in Oswega Falls, Michigan, in the year, 1814. Her family moved to Toledo when she was five years old. Here she lived until death took her aged body and gentle soul. She had always been interested in education. When she was six- teen years old, her greatest aspiration -- to teach school -- became a reality. Being the first teacher in Toledo, she was a pioneer of education in our city. It took infinite courage and patience to achieve what she did in those horse and buggy days. In wonderment we gaze at your portrait so fair. We are awed at the hardship you had to bear. Our thoughts wander to the school house so crude and bleak, Where your few eager pupils A came education to seek. May the ideals and the principles which activated the life of Harriet Whitney forever haunt the halls of our modern school building. ------Eleanore Kaminski 7 Back Row ---- Second Row Front Row--- FIRST LADY STAFF Dolores Piker, Jean Duda, Marian Diefenback. --Genevieve Lewandowski, Betty Warren, Fanny Orfenides, Bernice Otting, Arlene Hoffman, Colleen Sullivan, Blanche Brona.

' Perhaps I should stop with that, but I cannot refrain from adding a review of the factors which aside from your skill will con- tribute to your success. Let me enumerate these items as they have been presented to you many times: democracy, adjustment, foresight, work, a sense of humor, emotional control, health. Democracy leads the list because it seems to provide the con- ditions necessary to the successful fulfillment of the other factors. Adjustment, adaptation to circumstances or events that are beyond our control is a basic principle. It does not infer accep- tance of conditions which one can alter but does preclude the futile beating of wings against immovable walls of opposition. Foresight is that which Santayana avers is uthe greatest gift of gods to men.H It is the ability by which we are able to look ahead and plan a long time course which will lead to success. Only through it can we be masters of our fate. Work, and the joy in it, is the cornerstone on which our school is founded. No more need to be said. . Combine with joy in work a sense of humor to lighten the strain, when life becomes tense, and there is provided a safety valve for disturbed emotions. I All of this, of course, presupposes an ability to preserve emotional control. Hate, anger, jealousy, and envy are counter irv ritants leading away from success. Self discipline and self res- traint are the prerequisites of a happy life. Without health, all other factors fail except for the most persistent individual who can live above pain. Throughout your three years of school, health has been approached from the positive side Given healthy bodies at birth, your responsibility is to so obey the laws of health that a similar degree is maintained for life. I have indicated briefly the factors which with skill have been stressed in your stay with us. May you proceed on the path of employment happy and unafraid! Ethel Wooden Principal NEW FACES GOING PLACES Along with the new building the girls have been very fortunate in having many new teachers and a few new shops Among the new shops is Cosmetology with Mrs. Edith Bullard as the very capable instructor. The girls are progressing rapidly under the supervision of Mrs. Bullard, and the shop already has the reputation of improving the appearance of the Whitney girls. The Power Machine shop with Miss Mildred Pickering as adviser is very interesting with its many types of commercial machinery. The way seems are zipped is amazing! We also have Miss Cecelia Earhart instructing in laundry work and planning the program for the Household Management classes. The girls in the Tea Room have been very capable in serving and preparing luncheons under the expert supervision of Miss Lois Burman. The food is so attractively arranged that it begs to be eaten. Mrs. Vivian Miller and Mrs. Helen Merickel have been working with Foods sophmores and juniors. The Pastry shop with its deli- cious pies and cakes is the result of their workmanship. The girls are becoming very speedy typists under the capable instruction of Mrs. Margaret Bellemore, who also teaches the dictaphone and ediphone. The new teachers of related subjects are Miss Adrienne Curtis in English and Miss Thelma Howey in Social Problems and American History. Both of these work with the Retail Selling girls. Lucky retailers! Last but not least among our new faces going places this year is Mrs. Margaret Stoepler of typing and Mrs. Nellie Gerold in charge of the library. Mrs. Margaret Dwyer is the head of Distribu- tive Education evening classes. Mrs. Edith Sotherland assists in the office. I imagine the girls who have been tardy know Mrs. Sotherland quite well since she issues the admittance slips. Can you imagine a man in the building? If you wonder who takes care of us just ask Mr. Quaintaince, our custodian. We thank Mrs. Mary Wilde and Mrs. Clara Horner for the splendid way in which they have kept our halls so spick and span. 14 Lillian Anselm Mcrdell BaileY Clothing Shop Friendship Club ,,-N 1 V V, 'W V' Ov A' V- , "ZF Dorthiecx Barlow Clothing Shop Student Council First Lady Staff Friendship Club Evelyn Bedford Retail Selling Ollice Practice Studeni Council Valeda Club Ethel Mae Berkel Mildred Mae Detrick Foods Retail Selling Sergeant at Arms of Student Council Betty lane Briggs Retail Selling Evelyn Drum Retail Selling Vice President Senior Class Valeda Club Hortense Brownmg Clothing Shop G1 Vo H1 Gazette T' Felicia Drzewxecld Cosmetology Mary lane Clark Office Practice President Senior Class Student Council First Lady Staff Friendship Club Marjorie Cook Retail Selling Ruth Cherry I-'oocls mlm Ieanette Dufiee Foods Friendship Club - .gf Florence Dzie Clothing Shop Friendship Club Marie Farren Retail Selling Friendship Club Rose Feyes Mary lane Gormley Retail Selling Foods F iendshzp Club Friendship Club e 1 it velyn Glowczewski Ottice Practice Alverda Goltz Retail Selling First Lady Staff Gi-Vo-Hi Gazette Friendship Club Kathryn Fretz Clothing Shop Treasurer Senior Class Friendship Club Patricia Graub Ottice Practice Student Council Frendship Club V Maryory Puller Retail Selling N I Dorothy Holton Foods Friendship Club Margaret George Office Practice Valeda Club Betty lean Haney Office Practice Co Editor Gi Vo Hi Gazette T' Helene Hoffman Retail Selling President Student Council Friendship Club Gertrude Holloway Retail Selling Valeda Club Irene HOIVCIll'L Eleqngy Kusz Foods Foods Vwxan Hoye Ottice Practice Valeda Club KG f , tx! 4 my ttice Practice Gi-Vo-Hi Gazette V Friendship Club 2 Valeda Club S H' Betty Huss Clothing Shop Friendship Club Norene Legler Ottice Practice Friendship Club Helen Iakab Retail Selling Gi-Vo-Hi Gazette Genevieve Lewc Foods President of Red Gi-Vo-H1 Gazette Eleanore Kaminski Retail Selling Co-Editor of Gi-Vo-Hi Gazette Chaplain Friendship Club Betty Kertes Retail Selling First Lady Staff Friendship Club UW Florence MacDonald Foods Vivian Martin Otiice Practice Gi-Vo'Hi Gazette Vera Mayhew Oitice Practice Student Council Gi-Vo-Hi Gazette Friendship Club Mary Ellen McParlin Retail Selling Friendship Club Catherine Pacholski Oflice Practice Betty Iane Mead Office Practice Friendship Club ,i Phyllis Paepke Foods Mary Noel Retail Selling Friendship Club '--2 li' ' X Virginia Menter - 4, " Office Practice .

Surprise! There were no boys to be found in the building. This year marked the beginning of the Girls' Vocational High School. Without the boys around the halls, the classes seemed very quiet. We managed without them very nicely. Suddenly, we were told to move to the top floor of Webster School. Why? The old building was sold and the money received from the trans- action was to be used for the building of a new Vocational School for Girls. Wasn't that grand? Thrilled and excited, we decided to make the most of it after having settled at Webster. 1958! Juniors! How time flies! Of course, we went back to Webster, but we didn't mind. Cooperating with each other, we worked hard. A disappointment came when the school levy failed and a six weeks lay-off meant putting us back in our work. We kept our faith and vowed we would win yet. We did! Shortly after the opening of the New Year, our new school was so nearly completed that we moved in. What a day of rejoicing that was for both students and teachers! We were so proud that this dominated all our conversation. CD0 you blame us?J To have a school for girls was a dream come true. Then came the buzz and excitement of getting settled. Remember? We had our school, but no name for it. After weeks of research, meetings in which every student participated, we named it for Harriet Whitney, a pioneering First Lady of Toledo, Ohio. Alas, June came before we were really used to our new home. Seniors at last! This, our final year was a pleasant one. Although some of the girls were working in part-time cooperative jobs, they found the energy to take part in school activities. Sc far we have managed to get over the hardships with understanding and coopera- tion from both the teachers and Students. May each of us carry the knowledge so-gained into her own life, on the job, and in personal relationships. We, the Senior Class, pioneers of Harriet Whitney Vocational High School are proud to be graduated from this school. 25 WILL AND TESTAMENT I, as the Attorney for the Senior Class, hereto issue this, the last Will and Testament of the Class of 1941, Harriet Whitney Vocational High School, of the city of Toledo, State of Ohio.

DUT Q. f"x i L OFFICE PRACTICE Early office activities were closely associated with correspond- ence and bookkeeping. Since these were not considered important agents in the promotion of business, this work was looked upon as an unproductive expense. The origin of bookkeeping is obscure and difficult to determine. Babylonian records, as early as 2600 B. C., exist written on papyrus with pictures of scribes recording the quantities of grain brought into and removed from the government storehouses. But these were mere narratives. Money values were not kept because money had not been invented. About 1494 a book was published in Venice entitled nEverything About Arithmetic, Geometry, and Proportionu containing an explanation of the principles of double entry. The system had been in use for about two hundred years at that time. The early history of shorthand is closely allied with paleog- raphy, and has been traced into the mists of antiquity. Historians have tried to connect it with hieroglyphics and show that it was used more than one thousand years before the birth of Christ by Persians, Egyptians, and Hebrews. Abbreviated writing to take down lectures and for the preservation of poems recited at Pythian, Nannean, and Olympic games was practiced by early Greeks. The definite existence of shorthand reporting is discovered in the century preceding the Christian era. Tiro, the accomplished freed man, recorded speeches of his master, which were afterward revised by the orator. Tiro's system of shorthand was unlike our present systems, for it was not based upon the sound of the words but upon their spelling. We are told that there was a separate sign for each of thousands of words and even a separate sign for every syllable of some of the longer words. The first modern system was printed in London in 1588. A court of law in England in 1740 took the initial step in appointing an official shorthand writer. Less than two generations ago the business man handled all his mail from the opening of a communication to its filing. The man who had sufficient correspondence to require the services of an aman- uensis was the exception rather than the rule. The usual procedure of filing was to jab the paper on a spindle, or stow it away in a drawer. The growth of the country and of new inventions has made it possible to transact business formerly requiring days in hours and minutes. An enormous increase in the volume of papers to be handled demanded better filing equipment. The first recorded attempt to invent a typewriter is found in the records of the British Patent Office.

Retailing courses are given in schools to develop personality and character It is so easy nowadays to visit or telephone the grocery store that we forget our ancestors had to purchase a month's or even a year's supply of provisions at one time. Until the railroads and steamboats began to serve the world, it was impossible to distribute the products of all the communities in a continuous flow from pro- ducer to consumer. Some of the early methods of distribution are as follows: l. Barter Cexchange of one article for another without the use of money is still used among the natives of Africa, and there is a possibility that the system will be revived.J 2. Guild Corganizations consisted of local members of the town who bought and sold their own products.J 5. Fairs Cdurning the Roman Empire, people could come to these periodical gatherings of merchants to collect supplies. Some fairs are held today.J During ancient times after people had gathered around shrines of saints to worship, trading would start. Dishonesty in the exchange of goods was very common. Beginning as early as 3,000 B.C. and con- tinuing fer two thousand years the Cretans traded in the Mediter- ranean territory. During the fifth and sixth centuries before Christ, Phoenicians carried on trade in Sicily. Greeks did their buying in the agora, or market place, where there was entertainment while the purchaser was deciding on his wares, At first the barter method was usedg but later when they began to trade over-seas, gold and silver coinage was adapted. Roman stores were small with a sign on the front of them to tell the kind of merchandise carried. One of these has been excavated and found to consist cf nine floors, connected by steep stairways. Higher priced goods were sold on the lower levelsg and because the exertion was so great to climb to the top, nbargain basementsn were found on the top floors. - At first Hstallsu were used for selling goods. These were later changed into shops. The merchant lived under the same roof with his store. Modern distribution accomplished by wholesaling and retailing is classified under specialty shops, general and department stores. 59 A RETAILING SELLING 11 Back Row ---- Marion Manrow, Ruth Pease, Clara Mae Blaine, Elaine Rayess Second Row Front Row- --Mrs. Kate R.

U ,...f HISTORY OF FABRICS-CLOTHING SHOP No one can tell when man first learned to spin or weave, for the oldest histories give glimpses of men spinning, weaving, and knit- ting. Flax has been cultivated in Asia Minor for more than four thou- sand years. People who lived in the stone age knew how to make fabrics. Linen cloth was the fashionable fabric of Bibical times. Fine linen was a mark of honor accorded only to the high and mighty. Sheeps' wool and goats' hair have been used for clothing and tents almost as long as linen. About four hundred years after the birth of Christ Roman soldiers started a wool-weaving factory at the British town of Winchester. From this factory the native inhabitants learned the value of wool, and began to spin and weave it for themselves. During the reign of Henry II guilds were formed. and London was given control of exporting English woolen cloth. From these beginnings that city came to be the world's greatest market both for raw wool and woolen cloth. Cotton was grown and made into cloth in India full six hundred years before Christ. It did not reach western Europe until about 900 A.D. when it was brought westward from Arabia by the conquering Moors. At the beginning of the seventeenth century because of the religious trouble in the Netherland and Flanders, Flemish cotton manufacturers, spinners, and weavers had to flee for their lives. They started to manufacture cotton in Lancashire, England, which be- came the greatest cotton spinning and weaving locality in the world. Silk culture had its beginnings in China, how long ago nobody knows. There is a legend' that silk culture wasf introduced by'a Chinese queen, Si-Lung-Chi, from some country to the southwest and that she herself raised the worms, reeled the threads, and taught the people. Silk culture was introduced into Korea anb Persia even though the Chinese government attempted to keep the secret. From India and Persia Europe first learned of silk. Not until the tenth century did it become known generally over the Western World. ' At first much of it came into use for church embroidery and woolen robes. The production of raw silk was begun in Italy before the middle of the twelfth century. Silk worms were raised in Spain before or during the eight century. Business was encouraged by the Pope and later by the Kings of France. Tours and Lyons had become prominent silk producing centers by the seventeenth century. , , 't H- Q, New fabrics, such as rayon, nylon, etc., now threaten the hitherto undisputed reign of linen, wool, cotton, and silk. 45 CLOTHING 11 Back Row----Doris Moon, Gladys Moon, Juanita Fleming, Virginia Holewinski, Irene Krolczyk, June Brown, Evelyn Globig.

There are twenty-four different machines, twelve of which are plain power sewing machines. Some of the special ones are the buttonhole machine, the overedge machine, the zigzagger, the embroidery, and the monogram machines. One of the featured units is the cutter which is electrical and will cut fifty-ply Clayers of materiall at one time. Miss Mildred Pickering is the instructor of this particular group. She has had years of experience and understands all the prob- lems which might arise. This shop concerns itself chiefly with factory methods of pro- duction. So far the girls have furnished uniforms ordered last year and have completed uniforms for the Cosmetology shop. RELATED ART AT WHITNEY A business girl. working as a stenographer, must have evenness and balance in arranging her typewritten letters. Likewise the retailing girl should be able to sell the right shade of dress or material to harmonize with the customer's hair, complexion, and figure. ' A girl interested in clothing work may, with her knowledge of art, fit and design a dress or suit to a particular individual. In arranging an appetizing dish, the artistic touch is neces- sary. - In the work of the beauty operator, special artistic talent can be shown when arranging the hair and using cosmetics to flatter the natural contour of the face. Any girl, in whatever business she may be engaged, can in some way use her knowledge of art. 48 f,., ,, DEE., '51 ' ' l,,',':'f.'f.'u"f-fn,-K . :af 1535-, ..

This hypothesis is familiar to all those who have read UA Dissertation Upon Roast Pign by Charles Lamb. The first means of cooking food were by broiling or grilling over hot coals. Baking was done in hot ashes and later in a hole in the ground. Cooking in Water was probably the last method to be discovered, for it was not possible until water-tight utensils had been developed. The first bread was probably made by an mixing water with some wild grains when some on a hot stone near by and was cooked almost Drying and salting were the first types Preservation by drying was, no doubt, first man hung up some berries and forgot about Indian woman who was of the mixture dropped instantly, of conservation known. discovered when a cave them. Several months later he noticed and tasted the berries. They were so good that he put up some more until he was finally drying all kinds of fruits and vegetables. Though salt must have been quite unattainable in many parts of the primitive world, it was known and worshiped for its preserva- tive qualities. This is perhaps the reason to be called nthe salt of the earth.u why it is a compliment In the year, 1795 A.D., canning in hermetically sealed jars was introuduced in France. This method of saving food soon spread over the civilized world. In the year, 1825, tin cans were introduced to the food industry, but their efficacy was not proved until much later. The food industry has progressed from the primitive age of yesterday to the modern age of today. As long as man must eat to survive this will continue to be a dominant industry. 51 FOODS 11 Back Row----Lois Wilson, Evelyn Rykka, Virginia Wise, Marion Helmick CP.G.D, Kathryn Rowland CP.G.J, Lucy Ross.

Noon lunches are served from eleven-thirty in the morning to one o'clock in the afternoon. Patrons are asked to cooperate by tele- phoning the school office for reservations before nine o'c1ock in the morning. The work is done by senior students of the Foods trade group who are preparing for jobs in industry. They serve the public and the teachers for experience. The girls are changed from various jobs in the kitchen and Tea Room at intervals of two weeks so that they may become familiar with every phase of the work. Miss Lois Burman, with Mrs. Helen Merickel assisting, is in charge of the seniors in the Tea Room. During the school year, the unit has entertained many of the leading business and women's clubs of the city including--Quota Club, The Mother Singers, American Associ- ation of University Women, League of Women Voters, Young Women's Christian Association Board, Zonta Club, Business and Professional Women, The Northwestern Ohio Vocational Guidance Association, Restau- rant Owners' Association, and others. These groups usually tour the building and have the various trade preparation courses explained. 54 44' fig X, f ,. ,,,. AEE Q 2 K Q ' ' .1 R fx. A S: .

The mothers of the girls taught them these things, and this was the natural thing. When the factory system began and mothers had to work away from the home in order to increase the family income, they didn't have a chance to teach their daughters about the care of the home. As inventions helped with the manufacture of products in fac- tories, other devices were being developed to help the woman with her housework. To get the most from these inventions and perform the duties of the home quickly in the best way possible, home management courses have been begun comparatively recently. Miss Ethel Wooden, our principal, and Mrs. Emily Leister met with an advisory committee to develop a curriculum to improve girls for better household jobs, whether in their own homes or the homes of others. The real object of the course, however. is to prepare girls for employment on a non-professional level in institutions or private homes. To enter this course girls must have completed the ninth grade or its equivalent. An interest and ability in food preparation, a liking for children and invalid care are the prerequisites for enrollment in the Household Management Course. Mental ability to understand related material and physical fitness are also necessities for each applicant. In order to develop the skills for household management and child care the student must progress in food, clothing, laundry, hygiene, and maintenance work. The instructor, Miss Cecelia Earhart, acts as coordinator of all courses and adviser. Employment and production work in the twelfth year can be arranged on a credit basis with agencies, institutions, and private homes where the developed skills are in demand. Because this is a large and ever increasing field of employment, we hope to have a high placement record as the reputation of the course and its products becomes known. 57 HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT Back Row----Virginia Ford, Maxine Gormley, Dorothy McLaughlin, Margaret Hawkins, Gloria Davis, Shirley Piper, Patricia Yaeger, Doris Campbell.

They painted the under side of the eyes green, and the lids, lashes, and brows black by applying kambi. Henna was used for dying the finger nails, palms, and soles or the feet. Nero used cosmetics freely. He used white lead and chalk to whiten the skinp Egyptian herb, for the eyelids and lashes: fucus, a sort of rouge for cheeks and lips: psilothron, a specie of depilatory barley, flour, and butter as a cure for pimples and skin eruptions: and a pumice stone for whitening the teeth. The Romans, also, had a method for bleaching the hair by using a soap that came from Gaul. At the time of Elizabeth, a recipe for making the complexion beautiful was to take a hot bath to induce excessive perspiration and to follow this by washing the face with plenty of wine to make it ruddy and fair. It has not been very long since cosmetology was in much the same predicament that existed in regard to medicine in the days of good Queen Bess. If a member of that worthy lady's court found him- self ailing, little was to be done but send a page or attendant to the handiest barber for a leech and hope for the best. Similarly until comparatively recent years, the woman with a cosmetic defect could do little else than seek some perfumer, purchase some pomatum and a little paint to cover the blemishes as far as possible. She had to endure with such fortitude as she could summon to her aid and with as much resignation as she could muster. There was nothing else to do. Now every woman knows that a great deal can be done for a variety of cosmetic defects. If she cannot secure the knowledge and service she requires in one shop, she can readily find another that will cater to her needs. Thus the new school of cosmeticians is no longer the well- meaning though ineffectual counterpart of its predecessors, but has highly trained experts who have devoted their lives to acquiring scientific knowledge of their subjects and to the capable treatment of the defects they have no painstakingly learned to correct. 61 Back Row-- Second Row Front Row- COSMETOLOGY Mary Belle Krupp, Marietta Sautter, Henrietta Sauter, Virginia Finley, Leona Selangowski, Dawn Dresnek, Betty Fruchey Davis.

SHOP CLUBS Every high school has its various literary clubs and social organizations. Whitney is not an exception. Other than Friendship and Valeda Clubs, open to all girls, there are the innershop organiza- tions to promote good will and poise among the membership. The senior Clothing shop, supervised by Mrs. Elizabeth Von Hoff have adopted the name, Sigma Delta, for its club. This is very appro- priate, since it stands for senior dressmakers. Their motto is UFaith- ful.H May they live up to this fine inspiration. For book lovers of Whitney there are many clubs supervised in the English classes. These clubs hold weekly meetings at which various books are reviewed. The best book reviewer is awarded a club pin which she is permitted to wear until the next meeting. The oldest of these is the Ex-Libr's Club, organized by the Office Practice seniors when they were sophomores. The name, trans- lated, means HFrom Books.n Its purpose is to enlarge the literary background of each student. The junior Office Practice shop has chosen Cyclops as the name of its group. Lambda Beta is the name choosen by one group of the sophomore Office Practice girls. It stands for nLovers of Books.u The choice of the other sophomore Office Practice class is Whit- Gir-Lit, coined from Whitney Girls' Literary Club. In the junior Retailing shop, the Rho Sigma group started last year is still organized. The aim is to keep the class together and believe in one another. The Retail Selling sophomores have chosen an approriate name for their shop. It is Angorasta, a Greek word meaning selling or seller. It can be shortened to Angora. For athletically-minded girls of Whitney there are many team organizations, which enter into competition with each other to determine the championship in volleyball, badmitton, or other sports. 65 Back Row ---- Second Row Front Row- STUDENT COUNCIL Miss Ruth Moorhead, adviserg Jeanne Lashley, Betty Hanev, Miriam Tovey, Mary Jane Clark, Wilma Frinkenbeiner, Patricia Haggerty, Dorothiea Bartow, Miss Thelma Howey, adviser.

In order to have equal representation each shop has a delegate. These representatives bring the problems of the shops and classrooms to be discussed at the meetings and take reports back to their groups. The Council tries to vary the monotony of school life by promot- ing activities in some form of entertainment. A closer relationship has been brought about among students, teachers, shops, related classes, and clubs. The first event of the year sponsored by the Student Council was an assembly to introduce all the school organizations to the new girls. This convocation was held in the Macomber auditorium. A Get-Acquainted Dance was given near Hallowe'en. Everyone enjoyed the mock wedding and the nPoncho Tag.U The music was fur- nished by a W.P.A. orchestra. White pencils with Hwhitney Vocational High Schooln on them in green ink were sold throughout the year. The Council also gave both an after school dance and a skating party. These activities were sponsored to raise funds. Four baskets were distributed to needy families at Thanksgiving time by the group. The members include: Louise Nelson, Elaine Ritz. Miriam Tovey, Patricia Haggerty, Jean Lashley, Helen Olszewski, Vera Mayhew, Wilma Finkenbiner, Betty Holzapfel, Clara Mae Blaine, Della White, Rita Bellowska, Mildred Ewing, Juanita Wince, Audrey Hix, Mabel Leonard, Betty Horton, Eleanore Kaminski, Betty Haney, and Mary Jane Clark.

The name of the publication was coined from Girls' Vocational High by the staff in 1938. This school paper has been and will be written Hof the students: by the students, and for the students.H The staff has tried to print what the subscribers wanted in both articles and views of the entire school. Each year it has shown progress. The present set-up of three columns, four to six sheets, with many art additions is mimeographed in the Office Practice shop. This year the staff introduced the ideal vocational school girl, Whitty Vickie. An article is written under her name in every issue. Ima Snooper is roving reporter for the Gi-Vo Hi Gazette.

The Valeda girls were off to a flying start and kept up the record in the activities they sponsored throughout the year. Shortly after school opened the first meeting was held in Evelyn Druin's home and the following officers were elected: Mary Jane Donley ....... ,President Genevieve Thomas ...-... Vice-President Elaine Rayess .......... Secretary Elaine Ritz ............ Treasurer Jacqueline Steinquest..Reporter and Publicity Manager Eileen Ritz ............

December 18 saw hundreds of students attending the Valeda skate held in Memorial Hall. The proceeds were donated to the school. The club altered its constitution so the members could be chosen in a new and more democratic manner. Evelyn Gorski and Jacqueline Steinquest have also entertained in their homes. Other meetings were held in school at lunch time. In the course of the year we hope to get club sweaters and emblems, entertain others groups, and sponsor the social activities at Whitney, thereby relieving the Student Council. 1940-1941 members were: Mardell Bailey Evelyn Gorski Margaret George Rosina Mazziotti - Gertrude Holewinski Vivian Hoye Jean Lary Blanche Brona Marjorie Gregor Evelyn Pilarski Jean Emery 71 Back Row-- Fourth Row JUNIOR AND SENIOR FRIENDSHIP CLUB --Dorothiea Bartow, Myrna Dumas, Gladys Moon, Mary Jean Gormley, Hortense Browning, Lucille Zattau, Dolores Vogelsang, Genevieve Lewandowski, Ann Woods, Ruth Pease, Mary Noel, Norma Vorraber, Dolores Piker, Jean Emery. --Vanis Schyllander, Arlene Hoffman, Lois Wilson, Helen Siefert, Eleanore Kusz, Juanita Winoe, Virginia Wiegers, Phyllis Wieland, Evelyn Schmidt, Lillian Anslem, Evelyn Hansen, Mary Jane Clark, Vivian Stager, June Brown, Rosiland Glattes, Magdaline Petok.

The forming of the Junior and Senior Friendship Club and the Sophomore Friendship Club was necessary. The purpose of these organizations is to further understanding among the youth of this and all other civilized countries and to sponsor character building activities for young women. It works closely with the Young Women's Christian Association in its youth program. The Friendship clubs of Toledo convene frequently for confer- ences and other social gatherings. This gives the members from each club a chance to meet and know members from other schools. Among the social events enjoyed by both clubs this year were the Christmas Party and a party held for the Hi-Y Boys of Macomber. Other activities sponsored by the club were uadoptingu orphans and giving them a party. Installation of officers at the closing of a year always is an impressive ceremony of the Friendship Club.

This year, 1940-41, the advisor and director is Miss Thelma Howey and the president, Thelma Blair. The Glee Club has presented proof of its talent in several assem- blies during the year. The girls sang carols during Christmas week. A Chritmas party which included a gift exchange within the club, was enjoyed by the members. This organization is growing into a social gathering, and at the same time is becoming more accomplished. The girls are looking for- ward to singing at the commencement exercises of the Class of 1941. Sophomoree have, as it was hoped, supported the club and contri- buted more than their share in making the group a success. The girls who are graduating hope to see in the future the com- plete realization of the 1958 dream.
