As the Class of '36 made its debut at Mount Baker High School in September, 1932,
is was little more than a disorganized group of frightened freshmen. After the first
few weeks in which they were duly initiated by wearing short dresses, carrying dolls
and the like, we settled down to the serious business of studying. From an unorganized
group we became organized with Ross Ha.m1in as president, Anna Henderson, secre-
tary, and Miss Garland and Mr. Olmsted as advisers.
To start our high school career out with a bang we almost immediately presented
the skit "An Old Fashioned School" as our part in the Hi-Jinx. The rest of the school
year went along without any special events for the freshmen until eighth grade
visiting day when we presented our first program and Class Day when we became
At the beginning of the second act almost all of the stage fright which we had
experienced in the first act had disappeared and we enjoyed watching the mistakes
of the frosh.
Our leaders for this act were Eugene DeVisscher, president, Shirley Rogers, secre-
tary, and Miss Kirby and Miss Garland, advisers.
We again entertained the eighth graders with an amusing program, the main
feature of which was a play, "The Dummy," featuring Bill Wilkins, Percola Kope, Joe
Von Euw, and Dorothy Champman.
So we became Juniors.
As the Class of '36 appeared for a third time we were under the leade1'sl1ip of John
Scutvick, president, Bob Brockway, vice-president, Jeanette Nyland, secretary, and
Miss Nelson and Miss Kaufman, advisers.
The evening of December 7 we presented our highly successful play-"Seventeen,"
by Booth Tarkington. The play portrayed the life of a seventeen-year-old boy, WVillie
Baxter CEugene De Visscherj and his love affair with the "baby talk lady," Lola Pratt
CNVilma Hoffmanj. Willie's perplexed parents were Bill VVilkins and Persola Kope,
while Jane, Willie's little sister fAlice Caleyj, made Willie's life miserable by always
appearing at the wrong time.
May 3, the Class of ,36 entertained the Class of '35 at the annual Junior-Senior
banquet and prom, carrying out the Dutch idea with flowers and windmills.
So ends another act!
Our last act began uneventfully except for the usual freshman initiation which even
we dignified seniors enjoyed. Our directors for this act were James Snitzler, presidentg
Eugene Sumner, vice-president, Alice Miller, scretaryg and Miss Schlauch and Mr.
Our class has been well represented in all of the activities. The A. S. B. President,
Stanley Gibbs, the vice-president, Eugene DeVisscher, and the business manager, Bob
Brockway, are all from our class. We have been equally well represented in athletics,
both boys, and girls'.
On April 17, we presented our senior play, "It Pays to Advertise." Mr. Martin
fJames Snitzleri, a wealthy soap king, made a wager with his rival and friend, Mr.
Clark, that his son, Rodney fEugene DeVisscherl could make more money in a year
than could Ellery Clark 6Pat Rileyj. Mary Grayson CLucille Grenierl, Martin's secretary,
invents a scheme to make Rodney want to work-and does it succeed! VVith the
help of Ambrose Peale tJack Ruchtyl a great advertising campaign is conducted. The
French countess fPercola Kopej complicated matters for awhile, but by the time the
play ended every one agreed that "lt Pays to Advertise."
The future holds a Pirate banquet iso we hearj, Class Day, Baccalaureate, and
Thus the curtain closes on the Class of '36, XVe have had a very successful four
years, and we are looking forward to even greater successes as We continue on our
separate stage careers.

Many occasions during this busy year found the orchestra ready With
interesting and appropriate selections. All assemblies called for a repre-
sentation of this group, the basketball games used its brass and tympanio
selections, and the "Good Will Touri' used various groups from the
organization to enliven representative programs.
The Beacon Staff did a very fine job of collecting and printing
news of work around the theater this year, and kept the stars well

The Usher Club has twenty-four members. The members of the
faculty choose eight girls from each of the Senior, Junior, and Sophomore
sections. They must be not more than five feet four inches tall and have
a pleasing personality. These girls must be capable of making the custo-
mers of our theater feel that we really appreciate their patronage.
The stage force, under the direction of Mr. Gilbert, had charge of
all scenery arrangements for the Junior and Senior plays, the Hi Jinx,
and the Operetta. While each member of the force did his work well,
the efforts of Toddy Gritch were particularly outstanding and deserving
of Commendation. His artistic ability had much to do with the pleasing
stage appearance noted at each production of the year.

The Torch Honor Society is made up of those students who have
achieved a certain high scholastic standing. Those who maintain their
high standing throughout the four years are presented upon graduation
with the permanent Torch pin.
This year the cross-question type of debate was used entirely by
our debate team on the state debate question, Resolved: That the several
states should enact legislation providing for a system of complete medical
care, available to all at public expense.
Mt. Baker placed third in the Debate League this year with two
debates won and two lost. They held scheduled debates with Sedro-
Woolley, Anacortes, Lynden, and Arlington, and practice debates with
Meridian and Anacortes.

NVith a. record of three games won, one tied, and one lost the Mountaineers of 1935
turned in their best football season to date. And it was injuries to two regular players
that prevented a still better record. As usual the team was built around the seniors
who had received some football experience the year before. These included Gibbs, Dunn,
Scutvick, DeVisscher, Bjerke. Olson, Snitzler, Kline and Brooks. Their loss will be
In contrast with the showing made in football, the 1935-36 basketball squad turned
in their poorest season record in several years. To partly make up for this showing
the boys managed to take third place in the county tournament, defeating two teams
to each of whom they had previously lost two games. They then won a place in the
district tournament by defeating Friday Harbor. The Mountaineers failed to place in
this tournament, losing to Everett and Edison. Gibbs, Dunn, De-Visscher, and Olson
will be missed from the team next year.
Due to the late date of the county tennis tournament it is impossible to give any
of the results at the time of this writing. These boys seem likely to 1'epresent Mt.

The largest squad that ever represented Mt. Baker reported for tryouts for baseball
this spring. Practice began in the gym earlier than grounds or weather would permit
outside play. These sessions limbered up the body muscles, quickened the eye to follow
the ball, and schooled the squad in some very important parts of baseball play.
The squad shows an improvement in team spirit and playing ability over any
spring tryout heretofore.
Our record of last year showed six wins to two defeats. There are high hopes to
surpass that mark this year.
Track prospects at Mt. Baker have not seemed especially bright for the 1936
season, although the Mountaineers will have strength in some events, particularly
the dashes and the shot and discus. The following have very good chances of placing
in the county meet: Gibbs, Harkness, Ruchty, and Brooks.

The Letterman's Club received the following new members during
the year: Brooks, T. Haddox, Kinderman, Cooper and Mariotto, who
played the required five halves in football, Odegard, who met the re-
quirement in basketball, and Leen, Pettigrew, Rose, Syre, and Hawley,
who played the necessary fourteen innings in baseball. At this time of
writing it is not known who will be the new members to receive their
letter awards in track and tennis.
The Yell Staff, through their cheer leading and song leading at
pep rallies and at the various games, did much to create an enthusiastic
following among the members of the student body for each Mountaneer
team and thus aid materially in making possible each good showing.

The girls enjoyed a most successful basketball season this year, losing but one
game and winning the eastern division championship by a safe margin.
Ann Henderson, captain and sharp shooting forward, starred in every game.
Shirley Rogers and Marcella Jeans also played forward, Lorna Campbell, speedy side
center, and Dorothy Boren, jumping center, kept the ball at our end most of the time:
and Pauline Niles, Alice Miller, and Henrietta Kline. guards, held the opposing forwards
The girls have started their 1936 baseball season in an impressive manner by
winning both games played so far.
Our pitcher, Lois Tollum, is speedy and accurate, and Grace Guckert and Marcella
Jeans very capably handle her fast balls. Ann Henderson, at first, and Jean Galbraith,
at second, have turned in some sparkling fielding, Alice Miller, shortstop, and Lorna
Campbell, third, are steady, reliable players: and Shirley Rogers, Dorothy Boren, and
Flora Mariotto can be counted on to guard the outfield.
