Seniors Make Debut Into the Social World
Since you have already been introduced to our able board and faculty, you must
agree that such an administration needs something of worth to work upon. This
of course is the student body, and first and foremost are the seniors, at least we think
so. The class of '34 is not exceptionally large, however, what we laclc in quantity
is made up in quality. Of course, we don't mean to brag, but when you look through
the ensuing pages, please notice the famous faces emblazoned thereon and then try
to imagine us as Seniors, spending our last days in M. T. H. S.
At the head of our ranlcs is GEORGE BENNER, a very dependable person
is this president of ours. You might catch him reading some very deep material
or doing some experiment in Chemistry or Physics in his spare moments. He must
be able to carry his trombone in his poclcet for where you see George you see his
trombone. He has been an active member in the musical department during his
four years in school.
FRANK BACHMAN is George,s able assistant and one of the most studi-
ous persons in M. T. H. S. No matter what work is assigned to him, he diligent-
ly prepares it. He has been an outstanding figure on our football team for three
years and a good "pal" to all his classmates.
VIRGINIA KELLEY is the proud possessor of the little green book of the
class of '34, What would the halls of M. T. H. S. do without Ginny. Ever since
she came here from Maryland, she has been a loyal booster of Milford. Her clever
ideas have won for her many friends and also some lofty grades. M. T. H. S. will
miss Ginny with her "it is so."

A stranger, on entering a Science class one day, said, "Where's your teacher,
little girl?" Miss Schneider drew herself up to the full five feet of her height and
coldly replied "I'm the teacher". The visitor was properly squelched. In spite of
her youth Miss Schneider is a very competent instructor. She even has a Master's
Degree in Science-a big load for such a small person, but she bears up bravely and
goes on teaching Freshmen all about oxygen, inclined planes, and plants. She is an
alumna of the U. of I. and has backed our Purple and White-with as much pep
and go as she did the Orange and Blue.
Here we have a lady who has something no other person in school has acquired
-two names. However, she is known to all students as Miss Sloter. She, too,
went to I. S. N. U. where she learned-no, not readin', ritin', and 'rithmetic, but typ-
ing, shorthand and bookkeeping. Due to her great teaching ability and likeable
personality she has been a member of the faculty of M. T. H. S. for a number of
years and all the Seniors are sorry to leave her.
When it comes to judging contests or Ag shows, Mr. Schrader is right there.
He learned all about cows at the U. of I. and for the past few years has been trans-
ferring his vast knowledge to Milford's boys. Prior to the last three years he also
taught Chemistry and General Science. I-Ie has been very helpful in athletics and
all other school activities. He is usually elected Junior class advisor because he puts
on such good "Proms". Mr. Schrader is a prominent citizen of Milford and is ben-
eficial to both town and school.
For a hard working man, please turn to Exhibit A., Mr. Cohee. After slaving
with a football team for three months, he starts right in on basketball and then,
without a pause, begins track. He seems never to run down and is sad only when
his team loses and he has to wear a black tie. The coaching job is enough to wear
out an ordinary man, but he alyso teaches Math. and Civics. They must feed the
students Grape-Nuts in Indiana. Mr. Cohee has done work at University of Chi-
cago, University of Indiana and Butler, but you should hear him talk about his
favorite Alma Mater, Purdue.
Eureka! I have found it! Found what? Miss Merritt's school-Eureka.
That's where she obtained her first degree. She received her second at U. of I., a
M. S. And all of her pupils will get her third degree if they don't get their lessons.
They learn how to sew a fine seam, to cook and to eat properly. She's the last word
when it comes to planning a party, and if you want the latest styles, just ask Miss

MR PLUMMER Adv. MARY SPURGIN DEWEY CASE ELEANOR WOOD OWEN COON

MR. PLUMMER: As is the usual custom, the Seniors selected the principal
of the school as their class advisor. Although this is Mr. Plummer's first year in
M. T. H. S. he has become well acquainted with the students and helped us in many
ways. We wish to take this opportunity to thank him for all he has done for us in
helping to make possible this annual and safely steering us over all Senior difficul-
MARY SPURGIN: Spud is another musical member of the Senior class. She
can pound out a better tune on the ivories than anyone here and has become an
important hxture in the music department. She has been the "shining light" of
the classroom. If one member of the class is breezy, Spud's surely a gale.
DEWEY CASE: Whenever you see a little blue car go whizzing around the
corner, thatis Dewey Case. Dewey transferred to Milford from Onarga. He has
htted himself well into the mechanics of our school and has been a smooth run-
ning cog this past year.
ELEANOR WOOD: "Yea, Bearcats"-so says Ellie, the cheerleader. "I
mormember it all"-so says Ellie the dramatic reader. "Can you feature that"-
says Ellie the actress. Such a versatile girl in the line of speech, and friends-she
has them by the score. An all around good sport is Ellie.
OWEN COON: Bud Coon is the moniker he answers to and he hails from
Woodland. We have only had the pleasure of seeing "Coon" on our football
field and basketball floor for the last two years, but he certainly has rendered good
service in that time. His well known giggle is almost as famous as the Dale Beaver
EULA LE SAGE: Thirty-thousand Frenchmen can't be wrong and neither
can one little girl. Eula is known all over school as a peppy booster and she is always
