From the llvgflilllllllfl' of tlleiyear to the end, hard luck followed the boys, but they kept on figliting. Ono fault was the lack of height. 'Poor sportsiuansliip can not be found among our boys, and this far surpasses a good record. Many of the boys leave this year, but some will be back with more size and experience next year.

CLUBS This year, something new in the way of extra curricular activities was instigated in the form of au extra period of a half hour. This period was the first in the afternoon, and was devoted to extra activities. Every Thursday a discussion was held in every home room with all the students taking part. Nveduesdays were devoted to assemblies led by different groups. The other days of the week were theu free to have club meetings. With this available time, many new clubs were organized. This increase in the number of available clubs has resulted in the opportunity for everyone to be in at least one club, however, many of the students participated in three. and a few students in even more than three. At the beginning of the year about twenty-one clubs were organized and all but a very few have been amazingly success- ful. Many of these were entirely new to our hi,f.:h school. among these were: 'The Travel Club, The Mathematics Club, The Photo Club, The Nature Club, Arts and Crafts, Booster Page Twenty-eight and several others.

UE "IF I HAD A TALKING PICTURE OF YOU" THE PHOTO CLUB The Photo Club, organized last September by Miss Eagle. is not the largest club in school, but it is by no means a dull one. The organization did not get much done the first six weeks besides electing officers, and choosing a place for a dark room. A room in the Junior Ili building was at last found suitable for this project. It was through the efforts of the dark room committee and their work after school that the dark room is what it is today. Two boys built and improved the printing box until it works quite efficiently. The dark room was wired under the direction and supervision of Louis Jahnke and George Hutchinson. lt was through the efforts of Miss Eagle that an enlarger was procured. It is an Eastman auto focusg and when Miss Eagle gave an enlarging demonstration, it proved its weight in gold. All members who have paid their dues have a pass card which permits them the use of the dark room at any time the Junior Ili building is open. Demonstrations have been given on developing, printing, lighting, charts, and exposures. Many of the snap shots in this book were taken by members of the club. Officers: President . . .

The club was scheduled to meet the first Friday ot' every month with its adviser, Mr. Highman. ll NATUREKCLUB Nearly seventy students, feeling a mutual interest in the outdoors, belonged to the Nature club under the leadership of Miss Headington. At the club meetings, hunting and fish ing laws were discussed, and instructions for recognizing ani- mal tracks were given. At some of the meetings, the group enjoyed movies of many wild animals not common in our lo eality. VVhen the weather was not inclement, meetings were held out side.

To one group, "He's bringing her down the ladder", to the other. "Will that stage crew hold that stack of tables solid so that house and ladder won't crash il" A sigh ......... He's down. Humor, comedy, pathos, romance-all these did we offer to our play-going audience when we presented, 011 October 28, Laurence Housman and H. Gran- ville-Barker's poetic fantasy, "Prunella," which is woven around the perenni- ally interesting Pierrot theme. Pierrot, resplendent in white satin, Prunella, quaint, lovely, and pathetic by turns, Scaramel, "playing the fool to the life," picturesque lighting, with a blue-green shaft of moonlight catching the head of the Grecian statue, the immobility of the statue "himself," the mummers, the desolate garden, the mood of the play, all cast their spell over us, and carried us for a time into the realm of make-believe, the realm of fantasy.

Miss Can- non, our journalism instructor, has worked with the staff to make it a popular and useful part of our school life. This year the work of the art classes has made the paper more attractive.

This year we have been given class periods. but our efforts Inst much longer than the allotted tilne. Students are kept busy before school, during study periods, and after school iiinking' posters to advertise the activities of the city and school. One principal theme has been the study of the arcllitec- ture of Mt. Vernon. VVe have compiled a portfolio of bloel: prints of historically and zirchitecturully interesting buildings. lilenibers of the class have worked on inany different problems. Some have done batik and tie-dye. block print on textile, soap sculpture and wood carving, clay modeling, fash- ion design, eonnnereial advertising, water color painting, pen- cil and chalk drawing, lettering, and illllllllllilflllll, model con- struction, interior decoration, and landscape design. The silhouettes of the football men were painted by members of this class. Vile sincerely hope that the art department will be aug- mented until it is o11e of the best equipped in the school.

In sewage - disposal plants such as those at Durham QN.C.l, Madison CWis.J. Chicago Heights lIll.l, and Atlanta KGa.j-where waste sludge-gas is adequate-it is most economical to use Cooper-Bessemer sludge - gas engines. In other plants, where either low-priced natural gas or iuel oil is available, remark- able economies can be eliected by putting in modem Cooper-Bessemer natural-gas or Diesel engines. Cooper-Bessemer engineers know how to apply the most economical gas or Diesel engine to EVERY KIND of pumping drive. Ask our representative to estimate the sav- ings you can make.

Although all of these were not easy to climb, the class of lSl38, gaining recogrnitiou on the way up, is prepared to make the last and fatal leap. During 0u1' first three years, we have had many of our members active on scholarship teams, school committees, in plays, athletics, operettas, clubs, and the various musical or- granizations. Under the direction of Miss Domigran, our class displayed to the public, some of its talent in Noel Coward's success, "l'll Leave it to Youf' Later in the year they entertained the sen- iors at the f'ountry Club with the annual Junior-Senior prom. lt is the desire of our class to stand so firmly on the last rung of the ladder of high school education, that when it is finished we may go on to the extension instead of dropping off.

Now that time has come, we are realizing how IllllCll we have learned and also how much there is yet to be known. NVe are proud of our classmates, and our achievements are many. The scholastic standards ofthe class of 1937 are high. Good leadership is found with the newly organized clubs of the school. Athletics are well represented, and our drainatic abil- ity was shown in our junior play, "The Importance of Being' Earnest," the senior play, and the Music Masquer's shows. Our social life has been cliniaxed at many points-first as the host to our predecessors at the Junior-Senior prom of last year, next as the guest of our successors at the Junior-Senior Prom ot' this year, and finally our own Senior Proin. We are drawing to a close perhaps the happiest days of our lives-days for which we are grateful not only for the friendships with our teachers and claseznlates but also because of the preparation they have given us for the days ahead- it's up to us, now!

Y. May 15, 1951 Miss Betty Riley Miss Julia Delporte Riley Mission School South Africa Dear Betty and Julia: I've often wondered what had become of you two girls until 1 met Nancy Jeanne Budd, the other day, and she told me she had read in the paper that you had gone as missionaries to South Africa. Nancy is fast becoming a verj important artist. She said she had just finished the illustrations for Virginia Tulloss' new book of "Bed Time Stories for Children." Nancy went abroad last summer to study and she said she was greatly pleased upon meeting sev- eral old classmates of our dear old alma mater on her way across. That tall handsome Wendell Hart, with his charming wife, the former Mildred Kile. were on their way to Africa, to do a bit of big game hunting. Imagine! and Millie used to be afraid of spiders. Nancy said she appreciated the music on the ship and upon close inspection recognized the orchestra leader, Dick Gross- man, and his accomplished musicians, Anna Mason, with her squeeze box, Josy Baxter, Lowell McCoy, Harry Tripp, Gerald Blue, and Gladys Woods also Witl her squeeze box. Martha Turner and Ralph Baldwin were doing the vocaliz- ing. Nancy said she took a peek into the kitchen one afternoon, and there to her surprise, stood Jack Van Voorhis a11d Fred Bair mixing salads as non- chalantly as you please. Who would have thought they would have ever been chefs? Just before Nancy left me to keep an appointment with Evelyn Wool- ard, another rising artist, she said, "Oh, yes, I forgot to tell you that Murray Lockard is captain of tl1e ship." his wife, the former Marjorie Lohr, makes her home on Park Avenue, here in New York. I hadn't heard from anyone in Mt. Vernon for a couple of years until I received a very interesting letter from Verna Crider which gave me a vivid picture of our old stamping ground. Verna said her IIome Nursing class at the high school had increased rapidly in the last two years, and that she was planning having an assistant teacher, probably Helen Byers. She said the faculty, 'consisting of some of our old class mates: Paul Mossholder, history: Helen Gamble, bookkeeping, Howard Thomas, coach, Rose Morris, lating llob McKay, choir, Betty Humbert, Home Ec., Elma Bell, typing, Helen Bricker, gym and Dot Gatton, English Lit., are planning a shower for the prin- cipal, Charles Tarr, and his lovely bride-to-be, June Fox. From Verna's let- ter it seems that several of our friends are keeping the home fires burning in the old home town. Mary Buzzard has married and lives in Gambier. Charlie Van Aman, an automobile salesman, has set up a business on VVest High Street with Robert Underhill and Eugene Rogers as his mechanics. Charles Chann- cellor, janitor at the high school, and Cecil Rouse are very happily married. Page Ninety-eight ' 4 .41 L at . I . are 'G A e Vesta Sherman and Betty Phillips are working in a lawyer's office down town while Elizabeth Scott, Eleanor Sharp, and Betty Sheffer are working at the court house. Betty Van Rhoden and Glenn Hamer have at last become friends and are giving dancing instructions. The D. Brown and R. Bond market has become a very enterprising business. Miriam Spohn and Constance Simmons are operating the Old Maid's Confectionary on South Main St. Their most consistent customers are Alice Mills, Anita Cochran, Grace Ann Black, and Inez Smith. Next door to the confectionary is Cowen 8: Blake's Shoe Shine Parlor. Every morning Guss Hall and John Fowler stop for a shine on their way to work. They are floorwalkers in the large department store owned and operated by Howard Chester, VVillis Crider, and Louis Grant. Geraldine Swain, and Lillian Hickman are bookkeepers for the store while Anne Ad- ams, Dorothy Allison, Lucille Koontz, and Charlene Beckholt are still sales- ladies. The Hunter sisters, Iona and Miriam, have a hat shop on Main St. Dana Cline writes an "Advice to the Lovelorn" column for The Republican-News. which is now published by Ben Jadwin and Phillip Robison. Gerald Tyson brought suit against Dana for giving some advice that didn't work out and with the aid of his able lawyer, Harold Strouse, won it. Verna said that the Memorial Theatre still has stage shows once in a while and that the last one was especially interesting, for among the performers were several persons whom she knew: the famous dancing trio, Marguerite Chester, Florence Wey- ant, and Marguerite Giansanteg Paul Swain, the strong man-he's also the world's champion flag pole sitter, and Becky Anderson and Jeanne Gueulette. stooges for the Master of Ceremonies, Vincent South. You've probably been wondering what l've been doing since we last sau one another. Margaret Nolin, Jerry Parker. and l took n11rse's training cour- ses and are all on the staff of Bellevue Hospital, here in New York. Charles Seibold is also on the staff here. He's becoming a very important brain spe- cialist, probably trying to find out why women change their minds so easily and often. Marjorie's name is still Wilkins. She has made a name for herself on the stage and she's afraid her career and marriage won't mix. Mrs. Don- ald Jackson, formerly Mary E. White, has proved that they will mix. While Don continues his work in his brokerage office, in New York, Mary dashes out to Hollywood and makes a picture. They seem perfectly happy. Mrs. Morey Lewis, the former Peggy Upham, flew to New York from her home in the South to do some shopping. l happened to meet her and took her to one of my favorite dress shops on Fifth Avenue, operated by Avis Yarger. She does most of her own designing. Margaret Bricker, Antoinnete Rossi, and Ruth Little modeled some very lovely gowns for us. Dorothy Cornelius and Mary Hiles work in the alteration department. Before going on to Chicago to visit Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Brunner QAnn Harrisj Peg visited Bette McKen- zie's famous beauty salon, on 42nd St. Her assistants include Phyliss Bair, Doris Baldwin, and Hilda Bricker. At Kathleen Williams' smart hat shop, Peg added three stunning models to her already overflowing wardrobe. While we H Page Ninety-nine were in the shop Dan White came to take some pictures to illustrate a maga- zine article which Gerald Beeman, now one of the well-known fashion experts. is writing. Dan informed Peg and me that Richard Lynde, Charles Lawrence, and Owen Leonard were operating "The Charm School" next door to his studio. The evening paper tonight had several items in which you may be inter- ested. Mr. Dunbar Terry has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his Thesis on "Modern Dancing." Amelia VanDevelde and Helen Hoovler have signed new movie contracts. Speaking of movies, Glen Keigley's neva picture, "Beautiful but Dumb," is worth seeing. Almina Knepper plays oppo- site him. On the sport page I notice several familiar names: John Payne, who has been playing professional football for some time, has just signed a long! term contract. Myron Matheny is playing professional baseball. His eraser throwing in French Class evidently did him some good. Isabel Dubinsky and Esther Brown became disillusioned soon after leav. ing school and upon the advice of Rev. Worm Weaver, pastor of a large church in Cleveland, entered a convent. Willie West, an important radio announcer, is still free, white, and al- most thirty but from the look in the eye of that cute blond that he was danc ing With at the Biltmore last week he probably won't enjoy his freedom long. E,m'mett Lybarger and John Glaros have invented a mechanical horse which is fast replacing the tractor. Don VVatson's new comic strip has be come very popular with the children. There goes the bell! I must report for duty. Sincerely, Helen Moore. lil Page One Hundred I LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 1937 To Richard Byrd we leave Johnny Payne's ability to "kick that gong around." To "Jerry" Bogardus, Howard Chester leaves his title of "God's gift to the VVomen." Florence Wey'a11t's notorious "swinging it', we leave to Faith Poat. Charlene Beckholt's daintiness goes to Eleanor Barcus. Helen Hoovler's giggle goes to Harriet Graham who doesn't need it. Ben Jadwin's pencil is handed over to Marcia Hall as a reward for her fine penmanship. Ralph Baldwin's thumb is to be hung on the bank at Utica, for the use of any unfortunate stranded there on Sunday night. "Worm" W'eaver's intermittent lethargy goes to Don Dowds in the hope that he will use it frequently. Marguerite Giansante's stentorian voice to quiet little Jack Brown. Gerald Blue's persistent arguing to Helen Frances Hopkins. To Coaches Snyder, Prech, and Robeson, is heaped Dick Grossman's pub- lic address system. The remainder will be stored into room 40, to be used in case of emergency only. Almina Knepper's stature is transferred to Vest Keyes so she can reach her locker. Jack Van Voorhis leaves everything he doesn't want to Houston Schlosser. Mary W'hite's "come-hither" look is mercifully given to Miss Domigan, for the benefit of the gumchewers she catches. The seniors on the Forum staff regretfully leave the typewriter to George Thayer. To Buck Lechliter goes Willie West's mysterious gift to get along with the faculty. ' P Dan NVhite leaves Brownie Ransom to a better IIIHII. Charlie Seibold and "Snookie" Wilkins leave their daily quarrels to Dicl' Stull and Barbara White. Dizzy Dubinsky's "hot stuff" goes to Jane Jones who is already too dangerous. Harry Tripp leaves his comb and Janet to a better man who will probably be Harry Tripp. Murray Lockard leaves his bass treble to Bob Hayes. Margaret Nolin leaves her Mona Lisa smile to Paul Stein. Warren Ward leaves his pet sheep to Hugh Gower, to ride to school. To Mile. Michael, Nancy Jeanne Budd leaves her sweet temper, to lessen the impending wrath on the juniors when they can't get their "college length" lessons. To Hank the seniors leave the playground, on the condition that he buries some of his jokes. .Dunbar Terry's freshman craze is given to Bob Squires to protect the seniors. Lowell McCoy leaves his horn to Clyde Deem. The seniors of 1937 leave the school to posterity, whatever that is. Page One Hundred Ono THE CAST "I'LL LEAVE IT TO YOU."
