The class of 1949 are proud to dedicate this issue
of First Lady to Miss Cleo Murtland.
Miss Murtland was born on May 23, 1873, in Millersville,
Pennsylvania. She attended Indiana State Normal College, and
graduated from Slippery Rock Normal College in 1895. After
completing her course in education with a Bachelor of Science degree
from Columbia in 1917, she obtained a Master of Arts degree also from
Columbia in 1921. Not only did Miss Murland teach in different
trade school for girls, but she was the first woman ever to receive the
rank of full professor at the University of Michigan. In her classes, to
prepare teachers for positions in vocational schools, such as Whitney,
Miss Wooden was a trainee. She had been principal of Worcester Trade
School and Philadelphia Trade School for Girls before going to Michigan.
Since this is the tenth anniversary of Whitney, we think of Miss
Murtland and all she had done for us in forwarding the cause of trade
education. Now retired, Miss Murtland has many divergent avenues
of activity. One of her main interests has always been and still is
job training for women. She has also done work in recreational
centers, the Y.W.C.A., organizations concerning vocational
guidance. As hobbies, Miss Murtland enjoys gardening, sewing,
reading, foods, religion, and her numerous friends.
Because we use our hands in all we do and because we have
so many varied interests that help make us well-rounded people,
we are happy to dedicate this 1949 First Lady to Miss Cleo Murtland,
whose achievements have concerned so many young people like us.

THE HELPING HAND
To the class of 1949, my sincere best wishes.
You have chosen the interesting idea of "Hands" for your
1949 First Lady theme. You picture busy hands, hands at work,
hands at play, hands at the typewriter, the sewing and permanent wave
machines, the cook stove. Busy hands are capable hands.
The world is in need of another hand, the helping hand.
It is not enough to consider material use without spiritual yalue.
At Whitney, we have tried to encourage both qualities. As you develop
skill we make every effort to nurture in you the ability to get along
with people, to be democratic in your outlook, to help others over hurdles.
Gur good wishes for the future go with you. If you have promoted
the growth within yourself of these other values, if you have
the helpful hand as well as the skillful one, you need not fear.
That security which we all seek is within your grasp.
ETHEL WOODEN, Principal
