GRONEMEIER AMBROSE W. I-IARBERT Superintendent MAURICE N. O'BANNON It was not until their senior year that the class of '30 realized how much Mr. O'Bannon had done For them., They now Fully appreciate the Fact that he has Followed their activities closely during their high school days and that he has been able to guide each one most helpfully in selecting his vocation. Our Superintendent was graduated from Indiana University in I9l7 with an A. B. degree and received his M. A. degree from Columbia University in l925. I-Ie has also done graduate worlz at the University of Chicago. Secretaries To Superintendent To Principal KATHERINE HOGAN DORIS LIMBERGER G. S. Rust Principal When the Freshman Class of '27 enrolled in Junior High School, Mr. Rust was their principal. Three years later when this same class enrolled as the Senior Class of '30, they were glad indeed to Find that Mr. Rust had also advanced and was to be their new principal. Mr. Rust received his A. B. degree from Indiana University and will Finish worlc on his A. degree this summer at the University .of Chicago. f.'xa.'.!f.i In the same efficient manner in which she supervised the three preceeding annuals, Miss Bradley made the First magazine edition of the l-loop-Pole a success.

Seventh and Eighth Grades Class Will To whom it may concern: In order that we shall not be forgotten, we, the Senior Class of Mt. Vernon I-Iigh School, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and thirty, being adjudged of sound minds feven those who know no better do not think so J do herein will and bequeath our property, beloved and otherwise, to those who, to us, seem most deserved. To wit: I, K. Bernell Alldredge, will to Mr. Pence all of the shoes I have worn out, walking unnecessarily in the halls, as a happy remembrance of my high school days. I, Opal Alldredge, will to Esther Carroll and Kenneth Millspaugh a book entitled "I-low to Fall In Love." I, Ruby Marie Alldredge, will Room 3l to any Junior couple who can take care of it at noon as well as Frederick and I have. I, Thelma Alldredge, will my popularity to Lila Katherine Rich in order that the schooI's popular girl may still live in my community- I also will my beau to any one who is "Abell" to get him. I,Olis Allyn,will my place in the Footlight Performers to John Hames with the sincere hope that he may learn some of the technique of acting from Miss I-loward,and so that he may be successful in Hollywood. I, Clara Allyn, will to Katherine Allen my latest book on "I-low to Lose Flesh." I sincerely hope that she may use it with more success than I. I, Wallace Bishop, will a pair of my famous heel plates to Alvin Mix so that he may attract as much atten- tion as he walks through the halls as I have. I, Georgia Blackburn, will to Elizabeth Riecken a bottle of " Golden GIint" so that EIizabeth's hair will be sure to stay red. I, Erma Boatman, will to Anna Blake my violin, which after twenty or thirty years of practice, she may learn to play. l, Norman Bokelman, will a rope to Louise Weilbrenner so that she and " Perk " may pull together, and, if " Perk " refuses, she may threaten to hang herself. This will surely make " Perk " do right. I, Mildred Bottomley, will a record of all the times I have been sent to the office to George I-lessler so that he may profit thereby. I, William Breiner, will Leo Weir to Mr. Jacques so that Mr. Jacques will have someone smaller than himself to wrestle with. l, Robert Carman, will the remainder of my last plug of tobacco, since my graduation I am swearing off, to anyone who thinks he can use it. Don't all rush up at once. I, Joseph Carroll, will some of the ribbon and some of the medals I have won in iudging contests to El- wood Benthall, since I realize he will probably never win any. I, Guy Ellsworth Cleveland, Jr., will Emma Louise Oliver to the Faculty, since they are the only ones who can take care of her as well as I have. I, Arthur Merle Cline, will the keys of the I. G. A. Store to Wilson Given with the sincere desire that Wilson stop in some time and see a food store. I, Eloice Coleman, will a book of passes to John Bauer so that he can go to Evansville more often. I, Edward Culley, in order to show that I still love my dear teachers, will a Iollypop to each one of the Faculty. These lollypops are to be left at Weckesser's until next fall so that the teachers may spend a pleasant summer in happy anticipation of my treat. I, E. Pauline Curtis, will a bottle of Sloan's Liniment to Forrest Sewell since I am afraid he has sprained his wrist by writing me so many notes. I, Clyde DeFur, will a letter to Beniamin Kermit Seifert in order that he may have at least one letter when he graduates. "M" brought forward: envelope given to Beniamin. l, Frances Denbo, will to I-lerschel Aud, a green comb so that it can be company for the one he borrow- ed from me a few years ago. "Will" Continued on Next Page I I, Wilson Dickhaut, will my Caesar pony to Paul Gene Scheller, who finds it difficult to get through without a ride. I, Aaron Dunn, will all the extra time I shall have next year to next year's editor. I am sure whoever it is will need the time and I shall surely have some extra time since I shall not have to work on the maga- zine. I, Elizabeth Edmonds, will a talking picture of myself to the school so that my presence will not be miss- ed so much. I, Casper Eilert, will to Mr. Jacques an International Tractor to be used in demonstratlon work in the Agriculture classes. lCasper surely knows where his bread and butter comes from.D I, Frank Fessenden, will all of my extra-curricular activities to Frank Henderson so that he will not have time to get into mischief. I, Harry Gerber, will a book of violin selections to Paul Wehr. These selections are very easy. Paul should be able to play them well if he practices at least sixteen hours per day for 23 years, II months, one week, 6 days, and I5 hours. I, Martha Gonnerman, will to Ruby Vines a piece of ice with the advice that Ruby take this as a model when boys make eyes at her, since this is the way I have so successfully resisted Cupid's advances. I, Dorothy Grabert, will to Angelo Stephens my book entitled "How to Tiptoe Through High School as a Pretended Genius," which tells how to get a great big kick out of school life and still stay in the good grace of all the "Captains of Pretended Knowledge," in other words, teachers. I, Louise Graf, will my hair to Marie Kapperman so that Marie will not have to spend so much time curl- ing her hair. I, Marie Meinschein Green, will several of my personal letters to Mr. Gough, so that the commercial classes may have some interesting letters for dictation. I, Mary Gulledge, will my wig to Lillian Riecken so that Lillian Riecken will not have so much trouble in keeping her hair back. We, Florence Hageman and Myrtle Harbert will a book on "How to Get Along" to Frances Vines and Emma Oliver so that they may get along as well as we have. I, Ruby Hames, will to Mr. Pence another aquarium in which he is to put some of the poor "fish" he is always talking about. I, Viola Hartman, will a complete record of my days absent since being in High School to Elizabeth Harris, so that Elizabeth may use it as a model. No days absent, therefore no record. I, Charles Hix, will my position as chief monitor to Sampson Klotz, Jr., because Sampson is the only person who, in my opinion is physically fit for the strain of the position. I, Alma Lourene Holler, will my height to Agnes Utley so that next year she may be tall enough to get the tip-off in class basketball as I did this year. I, Esther Knoop, will to Herbert Schafer the exclusive right to be with Janice Redman as much as I have, since Janice and I may be parted next year. I, Dorothy Faye Layer, will to Esther Carroll the wedding ring left me by a member of the class of '29 hoping it will be of more use to Esther than it has been to me. I, Stella Marie Mann, will my horse and buggy to Frederick Sills so that he will have a safer way to come to school. Apparently he needs this since he seems unable to handle his Ford as it should be handled. I, Loretta Fern Miller, will Emily Greathouse my book entitled "Overcoming Backwardnessn and I hope she will profit from it. I, Jobie Oliver, will to Richard Caldemeyer all of the jokes, in which my name has been used, in the Hoop-Pole so that he may not have to look for any new iokes while he is editor of the Hoop-Pole. ' I, William Oliver, will the l93l cooking class a box of prunes. I, Elizabeth Peters, will to any Junior typist my position as typist in Mr. Rust's Office. I have found this quite an advantage, since I have first access to Mr. Rust's Civics and Economics reference books. I, Janice Redman, will my diploma to Mr. Hames, because I feel that he deserves it after all the help he has given me in chemistry.

" PROP!-IECY When I tuned in on my radio last night I got some queer results. I got station M. V. H. S. and Mr. Rust was delivering his speech to the class of '5O. His speech ran similar to this:- " Fellow students, I wish with all my heart that you may make a success of life, such as the class of '30 has done. I shall now point out each one individually and show you how he or she has succeeded. Bernell Alldredge runs a grocery at Solitude, where he lives with his father-in-law. Opal Alldredge married Lee Alldredge and lives at Upton on a farm. Ruby Alldredge has married Frederick Sills and has been swimming around in the Wabash bottoms ever since. She still resem- bles a grandmother which she really is. Thelma Alldredge married Malcolm Abell and is now living very happily. Clara Allen is the largest woman in the world. She weighs seventeen hundred pounds and goes with a circus. Otis Allyn is still hunting a wife. The poor fellow sings and dances, but does not seem to be able to attract the opposite sex. Wallace Bishop invented a new kind of heel plate which has made him wealthy- Georgia Blackburn married William Breiner who directs a thriving business in his general store at Farmersville. Erma Boatman is a popular movie star. In most of her talkies she plays opposite Casper Eilert, who is also a famous movie star. Norman Bokleman teaches Vocational Agriculture in Mt.
