LEONARD PARIS Editor-in-Chief JOHN PENCE Business Manager Jhe O AGICIAN 1929 Published by THE SENIOR CLASS CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL Muncie, IndianaFOREWORD (j 7HE name of our book, THE MAGICIAN, alludes not to J the Hindu charmer, the gypsy conjurer, or the American slight-of-hand performer, but to the literary exemplification of Muncie’s magic growth overnight, and of her development from those hectic gas boom days to the present time. We have given our efforts to the completion of a pictorial history which we hope will prove a lasting memoir of the city and of Central High. Throughout the book we have attempted to show a definite relationship between the old and the new, as one may observe on the division pages. The first of these, heading the section called "The School,” portrays the old and new high school buildings. The division page for the administration section shows the old and new court houses, symbolizing administration. Since the teachers are the guiding influences of the school we have chosen for their section the old and new city halls where the leaders of our city have their offices. Considering libraries, like classes, to be organizations for the improvement of the mind, we have placed at the beginning of the section for classes, pictures of the old library, which was only a room in the old city hall, and of the new library, which is one of the city’s most attractive buildings. The postoffices, the ideal of organization, we present to you on the organization’s division page. Pictures of the old and new gymnasiums head the athletic section. The old gymnasium is located in the west wing of our high school building. For features, picturesof an old street car with its dummy engine, and of a modern bus are used to show two stages in the solution of the city’s transportation problem. The crossed torch borders which are found predominant throughout the book, and the torch design on the cover are decorative interpretations of the torches which dotted the city’s streets in the busy days of the boom. The fly leaves show six stages in the development of Muncie from the Indian village of Munseytown to a thriving city of about 52,000 people. In the first stage, the white man in his covered wagon invades the village. In the second stage, after settlements were made, transportation by railroad is shown, with a station in a hollow tree trunk. In the scene at the time of the gas boom the countryside is dotted with derricks and tanks. The next phase, which deals with education, shows an old time Hoosier school house. The modern city on the horseshoe bend of White River is the scene of the fifth stage, while the sixth scene is a visionary image of the future Muncie. All of the art work in the book has been based on the general theme of progress. We wish to express our thanks for suggestions, for pictures, and for the use of valuable books: to Miss Gertrude Schwab of the Muncie Public Library, to Mr. Tate Wilson, a dealer in antiques, to Mr. Frank Claypool, who was the president of Muncie’s first Commercial Club, and to the school board of the city of Muncie.DEDICATION JO the future Muncie High School we dedicate this year book. It is our hope that the growth of Muncie and her schools will be as distinguished in the future as her progress in the past has been.CONTENTS FOREWORD DEDICATION ADMINISTRATION FACULTY THE SCHOOL CLASSES ORGANIZATIONS ATHLETICS FEATURES ADVERTISEMENTS WILL F.

This work had its beginning in 1901 in the Roosevelt School, under the leadership of the instructor, Miss Belle Thomas. The value of this instruction was soon recognized, and from this one small shop in a basement room the idea of "learning by doing” has grown and spread into every junior high school in the city and also into the Central High School. Paralleling the growth in the number of shops has been the growth and enrichment of the courses themselves. For a number of years instruction was given only in woodworking, but instruction is now given in a wide variety of subjects, including metal work, printing, electricity, mechanical drawing, woodworking, pattern making, and foundry. This diversification of work has been adopted in order to give all students a broad experience and familiarity with various trades and manufacturing methods, and also in order that all boys may leave our schools with a genuine appreciation of labor and a general understanding of the conditions under which the various tradesmen work. At the same time that students are becoming familiar with these various trades they may also find through actual experience and participation that which they wish to choose as their life work. In a similar manner the Vocational courses offered in the Central High School are, comparatively, only a recent development. The first course of this type was organized in 1915. At this time a shop was equipped for the teaching of applied electricity. From this there has grown a variety of courses all of which are planned to give trade instruction to boys who plan to enter these trades when they leave school. At the present time courses are offered in applied electricity, drafting, machine shop, printing and carpentry. Carpentry Class in New Vocational and Physical Education Building.One of the features in which our school has been a pioneer among all schools in the country has been the building of a complete modern home by the carpentry class each year. At first, the class constructed a garage each semester but, after several successful efforts, the school officials and instructor decided to attempt a house. Each spring the carpentry class starts a new house; at the close of the first semester this year they exhibited at a public opening the fourth Roy-Built House No. 3 "Boy-Built Home.” The pres- ent class is now engaged in the creation of the fifth project of this kind. A good idea of the magnitude of this undertaking can be gained from the fact that the combined value of the houses built in the last four years is estimated at forty-five thousand dollars. The completion of the new Vocational and Physical Education Building marks another step in the progress of vocational training in Muncic. The vocational shops will now be housed in large, well-lighted rooms designed specifically for this type of work.

Besides the excellent programs which they have contributed at games and school functions, a concert was given on April twelfth. The band this year has been under the direction of J. C. Lucas. Last year they placed second in the district and fourth in the state band contests. This is a good rating, considering that fifteen points were deducted on account of inadequate instrumentation. This year, most of this inadequacy has been made up.

DRAMATIC CLUB Catharine Hofer _________________ President George Gentry ______________ Vice-President Dorothy Downs _ Secretary-Treasurer Tom Hastings _ ____________Sergeant-at-Arms Miss Eleanor Bly____________________Sponsor PHE DRAMATIC CLUB started the season of 1928-29 with an informal dance at the Dragon’s Den. The first play of the year was Honor Bright, which was given in the high school auditorium. A Christmas play was given before the Kiwanis Club and at the Christmas convocation. The club entertained The Woman’s Club, also, with one of its productions. The third of May has been selected for the spring performance, but the play itself had not been chosen when Thf. Magician went to press.  THE PATSY pROM the first crocodile tears shed by Mrs. Harrington to the final and characteristic embrace we seniors sat enrapt! The Patsy develops the theory that the worm will turn. Dorothy Alvey played the Patsy delightfully. Her sympathetic and affectionate father. Bill Harrington, alias Harry Hagcrty, romped through the part of the wise-cracking travelling salesman just like himself; while his wife, Bernice Drumm, sobbed refined retorts to his snappy repartee. Mrs. Harrington had a decided preference for her eldest daughter, Grace. Sara Props personified the hard-boiled young society girl perfectly. Grace was much in love with Bill Caldwell, a boy above the Harringtons in social station, but, judging from his devotion to sharp-tongued Grace, slightly below them mentally; let it, however, cast no slur on his name that he played the part convincingly. Murray McDavitt was the handsome, shy hero, Tony Anderson, and disarmingly pathetic in the misunderstandings his love affair got him into. Eunice Brinson, Ivron Farmer, and Reginald May portrayed interestingly three of those who pass, Sadie Buchanan, Francis Patrick O’Flaherty, and Trip Busty the taxi driver, all of whom merely served as provocations for more quarrels in this quarrelsome Harrington family. "IN THE NEXT ROOM” Lorna Webster, Gonda Platt played a charming part very satisfactorily. In one of the most thrilling moments of the play Robert Maxon, as Colonel Piggott, alias Gauchard, who threatened to kill Godfrey if Lorna revealed his identity, was outwitted. Isabelle Connolly, as Mme. Charriere, played the French aristocrat convincingly and appealingly. Her attendant, the mysterious Julia, was played by Geraldine McCaffrey. The death of Philip Vantine was con ■ vincingly horrible as portrayed by Henry Barnes in one of the most difficult performances in the play. Providing comical relief, Allen Usher, in the butler part, was a marked departure from the amateur. Tough Grady, played by Tom Hayworth, smoked a convincing stogy. David White revealed a hitherto unsuspected ability to register distraction. Earl Milner as Simmons played the poker-faced detective necessary for efficiency. Credit for the biggest laugh of the evening goes to Robert Yeo who stumbled over the corpse to the amusement and amazement of the audience."HONOR BRIGHT” of those comedies that is complicated by a white lie or two and some circumstantial evidence, Honor Bright, by Meredith and Kenyon Nicholson was presented as the first Dramatic Club play on November ninth. As Honor Bright, Helen Williams interpreted the witty, pretty book-agent competently while George Gentry, playing Richard Barrington, acted like himself in a most satisfactory manner. Mary Stetter put over the part of Tot Marvel, a chorus girl, most convincingly, showing real artistry in her make-up and costumes. Leonard Paris as the hand-rubbing minister brought forth many laughs, unintentional in the majority. Robert Fee played a most outstanding part as Bishop Carton. He surprised and delighted the audience with the maturity of his acting and appearance. His wife, Grace Carton, was played charmingly by Josephine Wininger. Bill Drumm, Tom Hastings, a loud speaker press agent, managed to shock everybody and especially Mrs. Barrington, Dick’s mother, interpreted with much dignity and understanding by Martha Marsh. James Connelly acted the Butler Watts, with a most convincing "high-hat,” while Ivron Farmer as the chauffer, Harry Hagerty as the gardener, Jennie Bell Bloom as Annie, the maid, and Bernice Drumm, as Maggie, the Irish cook, all succeeded in difficult character parts. Simpson and Jones, particularly obnoxious policemen, sported the derby and the stogie and provoked much laughter. c5 t3ir£ie? ATHLETICS X I HAGigANJ X THE ATHLETIC COACHES RAYMOND JOLLY Basketball Coach FLOYD RAISOR Assistant Basketball Coach 1929 ■ 7—r FOOTBALL 1928-1929 FOOTBALL THE season for our team began as usual, at the training camp, Croslcy. Pete Vaughn of Wabash College was the chief coach. Gaumy Neal worked the linemen. Other coaches were: Julius and Goldsbcrry of Shortridgc, Phillips of Goshen, Bow from Washington High at Indianapolis, Walter Fisher, and Raymond Jolly of Muncie. At the field day held the last week of the camp, points were given for passing for distance, passing for accuracy, punting for distance, drop-kicking for accuracy, one hundred, fifty, and ten yard dashes in football suits. Red Myers of Central made the most points. Muncie was awarded the silver cup for winning the field day. The Bearcats are noted for upsetting dope, usually by routing teams that have been picked to win, but, during the 1928-1929 season they upset the dope in both directions, losing to weaker teams and defeating the strong outfit. During the season the Bearcats won five games and lost four. Muncie’s points total 63 against 71 for the opponents. The first game was called September 22 at the new recreational field. The Bearcats, playing a poor game, were defeated by Clinton 6 to 0. In a non-conference game with Newcastle, September 29, the Bearcats showed improvement. The score was 12 to 6 in Muncie’s favor. Muncie played its first game with Linton October 6 on their field. O. McAllister saved the day by making the final marker in the last quarter of the play. The game ended 10 to 6 in favor of the Bearcats. The game with the Marion Giants was a part of the dedication ceremonies of the new Ball Recreation Field, October 13. The game was close; it resulted in the Purple and White having a one-point lead. The score was 13 to 12. October 20 Technical of Indianapolis furnished the opposition. The game was a struggle. The Techmen, who were too much for the Bearcats, won the game 9 to 0. October 27, the Bearcats journeyed to Wabash to defeat the Hill-climbers 20 to 6. Mishawaka, one of the strongest foes that the Bearcats played this  meiciAN) y x x y y year, met the Bearcats on a muddy field at Mishawaka, November 3. The Cavemen proved to be stronger than the cats. They defeated the Bearcats 13 to 0. The game with the Tinplatcrs of Elwood was played on November 10, as a part of the Armistice Day celebration. The field was a sea of mud. The game ended 13 to 2 in Elwood’s favor. The last game of the 1928 season was played with Evansville, November 17 at Muncie. Evansville was defeated by the Muncie eleven 6 to 0. This game was the last for several of Muncie’s players who will be graduated next June: Leaky, Litchfield, Fowlkes, Alonzo McAllister, and Meyers. : fS29 HACIC.AX ' ,:)t WRESTLING Muncie 6 Wabash 32 Muncie 7l i Bedford 2ll 2 Muncie 16 Bedford 22 Muncie 8 Bloomington 21 Muncie 10 Bloomington 27 fUNCIE placed fifth in the state wrestling tournament. Ludington and Leakey went to the finals, Ludington winning second place in the 165-pound, and Leakey winning second place in the heavy-weight class; Barteau, wrestling in the semi-finals, won third place in the 115-pound class. TRACK J HE 1928 Bearcat track crew, coached by Walter Fisher, was one of the best that has represented the school in many years. Among the most outstanding accomplishments of the season were the lowering of the state century event—the 100-yard dash—from 10 seconds to 9.9 seconds, by Willie Fowlkes; the setting of a new national half-mile relay record, time 1:31, by Fowlkes, Graham, Swift, and Johnson, and the winning of the Greencastle relays meet ahead of such teams as Alexandria, Bosse of Evansville, Greencastle and others. The purple squad placed second in the sectional meet, fourth in the state meet, and fourth in the Big Ten meet. Tech was the only school to take a dual meet from Muncie. Dedication of New Vocational and Physical Education Building December 6, 1928  THE 1928 -29 BASKETBALL SEASON A 1.THOUGH Raymond Jolly’s Bearcat nctters were defeated by the strong Washington quintet in the first round of the state finals meet, and hence did not retain Hoosier championship honors for 1929, the team went through one of the most successful seasons in Muncie High School’s basketball career — successful not only because of the large percentage of games won and the third consecutive capture of the North Central "Big Ten” Conference title, but also for the wide-spread interest in the game itself, for the good sportsmanship displayed by both players and fans, and for the great increase in attendance, made possible by the completion of the new field-house. In the opening game on November 23rd, played against Hartford City in the Ball Gymnasium, the Bearcats made a fair showing, defeating Hartford City, which had begun its season several weeks before, by the score of 19-16. Washington, also with several games to its credit, toppled the Purple and White in an overtime affair, 36-32, in the second game of the season. After taking the Huntington Vikings, to the tune of a 29-23 score, the Bearcat squad made ready to receive Coach Staggs men on December 7th, in the new fieldhouse, just completed. The howling Indians, thirsting to revenge their last-minute defeat in the quarter-finals of last year’s tournament, were snatched by the scalp-lock and neatly disposed of, 35-24, in Muncic’s first exhibition of real basketball. The game was played before a capacity crowd of 8,000, gathered for the dedication of the long-needed structure. With Christmas drawing near, the Jollymcn entered upon the first of four games to be played within two weeks with the four most feared teams on the schedule, and, playing true to form, outplayed and outpointed Newcastle’s Green and White warriors, Muncie’s hereditary foes, 22-13. Next, Glen Curtis’ netters from Martinsville came to Muncie, to go down before the Purple and White, 29-21. The outcome of the game was never in doubt. Then, the Friday after Christmas, the Bedford Stonecutters, the only team the Bearcats met throughout the season which they were not favored to de- feat, welcomed the squad to their fair city, and in a forty-minute affair took the ’Cats to town by the margin of six points, 43-37. This was the first game in three years in which Muncie was outpointed from the field. Howling and tearing, the Jollymen tore into Everett Case’s All-Indiana Hot Dogs from Frankfort, now state champs, and, after a hectic affair in which the score was eight times tied, emerged victorious, 40-39. Francis Reed sank a long one from the center of the floor in the last minute of play to win for Muncie. Confident, after this wonderful battle, the Bearcats came jauntily onto the hardwood to romp through Morton of Richmond’s Red Devils, who had, to date, the inspiring record of two games won and eight games lost. Some forty minutes later they stared dazedly at the score-board, the reverberations of the final gun ringing in their cars, to sec placarded in bold white characters: Richmond, 35; Muncie, 3 3. There was no mercy shown the next night; for the Alices from Vincennes, who last year upset the ’Cat in mid-season, were completely annihilated, with the final score 32 to 18. Cliff Wells’ Loganberries were the next to tumble before the Purple and White. After fighting the Logansport quintet on even terms during the first half, the Bearcats forged through to win 40-28. Kokomo fell before Muncie, 3 3-24, in an uninteresting contest in which the Bearcats' lead was never threatened. In the next four games the ’Cats romped through Lebanon, Marion, Rochester, and Jefferson of Lafayette with the scores 33-27, 47-24, 34-20, and 23-18, respectively. Lebanon’s team was rangy, but could not stand up before the Purple and White machine. Marion, which had the week before crushed Martinsville, weakened by the suspension of its star players, 39-11, did not offer the opposition expected. The game with the Rochester Zebras cinched Muncie’s hold on North Central Conference title. Although the Jollymen still had a clash with Hooker’s Trojans from Newcastle, they led the field, win or lose. The bucking of the Lafayette Bronchos was not violent enough to even jostle such experienced horsemen as the Bearcats. With the tournament three weeks distant, the Green and White quintet from the Rose City came to Muncic with 2,000 fellow-townsmen to repay Muncic for its former 22-13 defeat. But the Jolly-men were inprcgnablc in defense, and invincible in offense. Revealing state championship form they whirled through the Hookermen to pile up a 41-25 victory. In the return tilt w-ith Marion, Muncie chalked up its largest score of the season, 51 points, while the Taub-coached crew ran up 3 5. South Side of Fort Wayne, on their diminutive playing floor, almost gave the ’Cats too much to chew in the last scheduled game, holding them to a one-point margin, 36-35, which was gained in the last 20 seconds of play by a long one from Swift. Then came the tournament------ Beginning with a 68-23 victory over Harrison Tow’nship, the Purple machine advanced through the sectional, and on into the regional, to emerge regional champion with a score of 30-19 over Middletown. Only in the Eaton and Winchester games did the Bearcats falter, being held in each case to a six-point win. The scores were: Sectional — Muncic, 68; Harrison Township, 23. Muncie, 25; Eaton, 19. Muncic, 66; DeSoto, 18. Regional — Muncie, 26; Winchester, 20. Muncic, 30; Middletown, 19. After that came the game with Washington, w’ith the giant Dcjernct towering black and grim beneath his own basket, to snatch out time and again at the flying ball, and shove it effortlessly through the hoop with the machine-like precision of an automaton; with our boys fighting, fighting hard, but unable to make the connections with the goal which meant victory; with the Muncic stands yelling, hoarsely, "Fight, team! Fight! Fight! Fight! —oh, FIGHT!” But the whistle blew', and the game was over and lost, and the crowds went home. The Bcarkittens, composed of second-string men, had a successful year also, meeting the strongest secondary teams in the state, and losing but two games.GIRLS’ BASKETBALL IRLS’ basketball this year was ended March 28, at the annual Play Day. Several games were played during the season, but none of these were inter-scholastic games. Bernice Drumm and Vivian Hughes, as co-heads of basketball, had charge of the hardwood activities. Several soccer games were played last fall at McCulloch Park. However, practice was ended abruptly on account of the bad weather and wet playing ground. Norma Conger, head of soccer, directed this sport. ■1029 •; “7— -7-V—  PROPHECY OF CLASS OF ’29 Y NLY eleven years from that memorable day on which we, the seniors of 1929, had forsaken high school for the greater things of life, I set out for New York for the purpose of tracing the careers of some of my fellow-graduates. As I got out of the train, I noticed a sign near the station which read, "Hutchings’ Hot-Hound Hut.” Being somewhat hungry , I made my way to the place. In the midst of one of the dogs I recognized the waitress as Irma Good. After a long chat, she told me that Harold Hutchings was the owner of the place and that Blanche Bunner worked there also. I asked her to direct me to a good hotel near the station, and she told me how to get to the Krosse-Armes, New York’s newest and classiest. Scarcely had I gained entrance to the Krosse-Armes when two bell-hops, whom I recognized as Nick Mentis and Dale Roach, started fighting over my grips; but when they became aware of my identity they both dropped them with a thud. Infuriated, the manager came to stop the commotion, but when he neared me, he too stopped in his tracks, for it was Murray McDavitt. After many greetings, Murray led me to the desk where George Silence was the clerk. I was given a room on the ninety-eighth story of the hotel and was taken up in the elevator by another member of our class, Wayne Finley. After a short rest I had dinner with Murray in the main dining room, where Mary Bennington was in charge. Mary told me that Jennie Bell Bloom was a maid at the same hotel. After dinner we went into the lobby and bought cigars from Doris Fell. Murray insisted that I attend the theater with him that night. We were greeted at the door by Bob Cochrun, doorman, whose lusty salutations were reiterated just inside by the ticket-taker, Ruth Edwards. Ruth took us to the manager, Ray White, and after we had talked for a long time with him, Edith Crist ushered us to our seats. Edith told us that Alice Coals was also an usher and that Morton Pazol was the owner of the chain of theaters of which this one was a member. The feature of the evening was a talking picture with Dorothy Brown and Ivron Farmer, and a personal appearance of Dorothy. After the performance, we went back stage for a chat with Dorothy, who told us that besides her and Ivron, Gwendolyn Hamilton, Martha Perdieu, and Albert Schram were engaged in acting; that Norman Harris was a famous producer; Chester Newman, a director; Dale Poffenbarger, a photographer; Mary Louisa Garrison and Fred McClellan, voice specialists, and Alex McGalliard, Leonard Potter, and Robert Sharp, electrical technicians. The next day Murray conducted me in his car on a sight-seeing tour about the city; but before we had gone two miles we were arrested for speeding by Hubert Nay, a traffic cop. Even after Hubert recognized us he made us come to the station. In the courtroom, Tom Hyatt was judging a divorce case. Ralph Livingston was the attorney for the defense, Earl Barlowe was the sergeant, Mahlon McCammon, the bailiff, and John McClellan, the jury foreman. After the trial we all had a long talk, and Murray and I escaped our charge. We next dropped into a barber shop where George Snyder was head barber, and John Laughlin was his assistant. After a shave, a hair-cut, and a long talk, we were manicured by Margaret Bechtel and Edith Johnson. They told us that Tierney’s Tea Tabernacle, which was just across the street, was run by Julia Tierney, and that she employed as the waitresses Ruby Wray, Marccna Allison, Mary Huddleston, Virginia Rankin, and Mary Ruth Winebrenner. Wc left the barber shop and drove a short distance to the Ostcrhoff Building. We found that Harold Ostcrhoff owned the square, which was built by Dale Mitchell, contractor. In the building was an Automat Book Shop run by Helen Williams and Lois Thornburg. After we had made ourselves known to the proprietors they told us that most of their best sellers came from the publishing house of French and Judy. Philip and Bob, our old classmates, were the heads, and Sara Chalfant was the script reader. Some of the books were Esther Conger’s The Lillie White Cot, Marilouise Green’s How To Be Thrilled Though Thirty, one by Catharine Phillips on How To Lie Intelligently; The Modern Muse of Poetry, an autobiography by Helene Hawk, and a Pulitzer prize novel by Bob Waldorf. On the next floor of the building, they told us Belva Huey ran an Automat Eat Shop, and was assisted by Mildred Hudson. Bernice Drumm was the chef and Herbert Helms was dishwasher. They told us also that Charles Fisher was manager of the Northwestern Insurance Company in the same building, and that he employed David Curd, Ray Lightfoot, and Wendell Pierce as salesmen, and Mary Ellen Elmore as stenographer. Our next journey was to a dime store nearby. Andrew Sipe, the manager, was overjoyed at seeing us, and made us known to his assistant. Gene Hopping, and his clerks, Margaret Carmichael, Virginia Irwin, Mary Wallace, Charlinc Nibargcr, Martha Coffman, and Lola Mae Martin, with whom we talked over old times. We went for lunch to a cafeteria about a square away. Pauline Staley and Wilburta Webster were the proprietors; Mary Stctter, the cashier, and Anna Lois Wallace and Virginia Tucker, the waitresses. They told us that Virginia Turner and Myrtle Yates were running a beauty parlor, and that Veda White assisted them. Murray next took me to a large hospital where he said I could get a line on many more of our graduates. We talked to Bob Zimmerman, the head surgeon, who told us that Ralph Mixell and Ernest Elliot were internes, and that Vera Frances Rozelle, head of nurses, had under her Dorothy Beath, Montrew Isenhart, Margaret Rector, and Dorothy Sheilenbarger. He told us also that Eloise Bird was in school at Brynn Mawr, on a scholarship, and that Jane Smelser was a dean there, and Margaret White, a teacher. He said that Reginald May was the owner of a Bowery Cafe where Charles Brady was the bouncer and Nadine Myers the pianist, and that Bob Full was a professional hobo. Wc next visited the House of Bowman and Garrett, interior decorating establishment. Arlene Bowman and Grace Garrett were the heads, Philora Schuster the buyer, and Gladys McWhirt, Eleanor Sadler, and Clara A. King were on their staff. At a bank in Harlem we found Willie Foulkes, president; Geneva Curd was the bookkeeper, Lois Taylor the cashier, and Alonzo McAllister the teller. They told us that O’Dell Grant was dean of men and Gladys Sims dean of women at Tuskegee College, and that Addie Shelton taught Latin there. We then went to the editorial offices of The New York Sun and talked to George Gentry, editor. On his staff, he said, were Daphne DePoy, proof reader; Dorothy Downs, editorialist; Mary Jane Easton, society reporter; Fred Harvey, sport writer; Lloyd Jarrell, humorist, Fred Meeker, reporter; and John Pence, business manager. George told us  also that James Connelly owned a haberdashery, where Horace Martin and Don Duval clerked, and Mary J. Hoover was cashier. After dinner at the hotel, Murray and I went to the Ziegfield Follies. Charles Phillips and Dorothy Alvey were starred, with Harry Hagerty and Vivien Livingston furnishing comedy relief. After the performance we went to a night club where Eunice Brinson was hostess and Virginia Garner, Lorraine Canaday, and Ora McCutcheon were dancers. In the orchestra, which was led by Evan Combs, were Charles Mixell, trombonist, and Ray Cranor, cornetist. The next day we had dinner at Murray’s club, the Ritzbitz. Tom Hastings was president and Howard Largent general secretary, while Ralph Carmichael was doorman at the clubhouse. That afternoon I took a train for home, satisfied that in only two days I had traced the careers of many of our graduating class, and hopeful that in a few years I might look up the rest. On the train I met another member of the class of ’29, Bob Barnet, who was travelling for a hair tonic company of which Fred Kccsacr was president. He told me that Emery Skinner was running a showboat on the Mississippi and that Mary Catherine Garr and Charles Davis were in the troupe as dancer and animal trainer, respectively. Bob told me also that Carolyn Brunson was a portrait painter’s model in Greenwich Village. It was ten years later that I had occasion to cross the "puddle.” I was taken to New York in a Zippy-Zeppelin piloted by Alford Heath, who told me that Donald Reed was the owner of a chain of Zippy-Zeppelin transportation companies throughout the United States. He said that Reed also employed Layton Doster and Paul Lowery as pilots, and Nimrod Good and Richard Rankin as mechanics. I arrived on the roof of the Krosse-Armes Sunday morning in time to go with Murray to the Hyde Park Church. Francis Black was the pastor and Mary Bond a soloist with the choir. After the sermon, Francis told us that Ralph Keesaer was the pastor of a Methodist church in Boston. That afternoon we went to a branch library near the Krosse-Armes, where Marian Hutto, as head librarian, was assisted by Evelyn Tilford, Thelma Wilkinson, and Carrie Chamness. Martha Louise Newport was in charge of the children’s department. They told us that Kate Hofcr had become Governor of Wyoming; that Helen Ncwbold was in a marathon dancing contest in California, and that Ruth Leeper and Nellie Ncwlin were staging a sister act on Broadway. Since I was not to sail until Monday evening, we went that morning to a point on the Hudson not many miles from the city where William Long was conducting a floating university. His professors were Harry Cartwright, professor of insectology; Ralph Erwin, sociology; Lintner Clark, chemistry; Amy Morris, English; and Margaret Gaskill, mathematics. They told us that Lynn Hazzard and Joseph Bock had gone into the automobile manufacturing business with Frank Litchfield as draftsman; that James  Myers was playing professional football; that Harold Cosby was an undertaker in Boston, and that Charles Picroni was a broker employing Charles Reece as clerk and Veda Radabaugh as secretary. That evening I sailed for Europe and was pleasantly surprised to find that the captain of the ship was Ray Dowling. He took me to Leslie Titus, the first mate; Forrest Finney, the steward; Wade Kerr, the purser; and Ruth Chapman and Clara King, stewardesses, all of whom promised to help make my trip enjoyable. The next morning I recognized several of a group of people on board as members of my class. They were Beulah Graham, Marion Leakey, George Maple, and Ralph Satter-lee, representing America in the Olympian games. Lillian Lundbcrg and Adrian White, their trainers, told me that Beulah and Marion would be placed in the 100-yard dash, that George starred in the high jump, and that Ralph represented swimming. I next recognized a classily dressed person as Walter Trissell, who, when he realized my identity, told me that he was on his way to Paris. His valet, Fred Allison, told me that Walter was a national diplomat and that Mary Rector was his secretary. A stately young woman with pince-nez next approached me and made herself known as Marian Bilby. She told me that she was bound for Europe in search of material for a new romantic novel. Marian took me to a women whom I recognized as Lucille Devoe, but she was reintroduced to me as the Countess of Deauville. She knew me at once and told me of her titled marriage. 0 Bernard Freund, who was on his way to Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship, also recognized me and started talking over high school days with Marian, Lucille, and me. All four of us went to dinner together, and after dinner we went in search of other classmates who, they told me, were on board. The first one we met was Elizabeth Huffman, who said she was going abroad to purchase antique furniture for her employer, Esther Guthrie, who had become a connoisseur. We next saw Irene Moody, who told us that she was going to Siam to be a missionary. She told us that Sara Props was editor of Vogue, back in America, and that Leona Powers was an illustrator for the same magazine. Martha Ann Ogle was the next person we met. She told us that she was an evangelist and was set on reforming the world. She told us also that Florence Reynard and Lillian Schram were partners in a date agency at an American college and that Dorothy Sciple was a government meteorologist. Grover Voyles made himself known to us as the United States Ambassador to France, and told us that Paul Wilhelm was director of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra and that James Wallace owned a candy shop in New' Orleans. We met Ralph Pence also, who had a large tailoring establishment in Pittsburgh and was on his way to Paris for advance styles. He told us that Bob Tolan was a famous astronomer and that Philip Underwood was his right-hand man. He told us also that Alton Wade and Glen Wolfe had formed the clothing establishment of Wade and Wolfe. That night, all the members of the class of ’29 aboard the ship made whoopee in the ship’s cabin. It took us only a day to cross the ocean in the 1945 steamship. Immediately upon landing, all bound for Paris were transported in airplanes. In a few hours we were in Paris, and Grover, who had promised to conduct me about the ctiy, took me at once to the capitol where I was presented by Regina Barbieux, the French Premiere’s yes-man, with a crown of laurels because my name, too, was Paris. The first place we went was called Nelsone Nifte Nooke, a dress shop whose proprietresses were Rosalyn Nelson and Emma Williams. They made us known to their mannequins, Ellen Nichols, Virginia Clouse, Bernice Curts, and LaVercia Fields, and their designers, Virginia Pearson and Martha Bordncr. They told us that Annabcllc Kabrick had married a millionaire and was Paris’ best-dressed woman and that Harriet Rouse was now a marquise and that she employed as governess for her children, Garnet Rees. Not far from Nelsone Nifte Nooke was a sign which read: "Cranor et Masters, Printers Extraordinaires.” We made for the shop and found it was a printing establishment owned by Harry Cranor and Harold Masters and that their secretary was Ruth Elliot. They told us that Marjorie Shroyer had become a nun, John Walburn had a dancing studio in Greenwich Village, and that John Wallace manufactured cigarettes in an immense factory near Paris. After lunch, Grover took me to L’Ecole Pour Les Enfants, a kindergarten run by Evelyn Ramsey. Evelyn employed as teachers Laura Wilkinson, Wilma Clark, Katha-ryne Denny, and Mary Poffenbarger, while Keefer Crawley was her attendance officer. Evelyn told us that Madalyn Parker was Paris’ most famous magazine editor, that Josephine Wyninger had written two universally accepted histories of France, and that Marciel and Martha Worl were faking a Siamese Twin act in theaters all over Europe. On a street corner not more than a block away we heard a French Salvation Army hitting up a tune. Investigation showed us that Lowell Stephens was the head of the group; Lorraine Cox and Mildred Gallimore were singers, and Julia Moore was the tambourinist. They told us that Raymond Irelan, Donold Knccht, Luther Miller, and Charles Platt had joined the Marines and were in China. After dinner Grover and I went to L’Opcra de Russia. The leading parts were sung by Louise Fisher and Bob Fee, while two girls from our class, Jama Freeland and Dorothy Jane Pfeiffer, were in the ballet. The symphony orchestra was composed entirely of women, with Martha Marsh at the piano and Frances Dean, the violinist. The careers of all my classmates had been traced and I felt that the time I had spent had been profitable; so I bade them all goodbye and went in search of material for another novel. LEONARD PARIS, Prophet. PROGRESS OF THE CLASS TO go through four years, looking only ahead, little noting the inevit-1 able changes Time brings about, then to be called upon suddenly to look backward for a space, the view is scarcely recognizable. No other small period of life packs so much development into it as docs the high school days. Only four short years ago the class of ’29 came into 324 as freshmen. This position was then considered an inglorius one, and they worked hard to become sophomores in the fall of 1926. The next year an important step in their high school career was taken, when they came into 306 under the sponsorship of Miss Jamieson. Don Knecht was elected president. The class gave a circus dance before Christmas, and, later, another dance at the Hotel Roberts, the ballroom being decorated to represent a Japanese garden. Leonard Paris, versatile member, composed a new school song. From all reports, the play, You and , was one of the best of junior performances. Last autumn brought the freshmen of ’25 into 206 as seniors, in charge of Misses Siegwart and Jamieson. The first activity was the nomination dinner at which the candidates gave their acceptance speeches. The results of the election were: Tom Hastings, president; John Pence, vice-president; Vivien Livingston, secretary-treasurer. A memorable event of this year was the dedication of the new gymnasium. The senior class was in charge of refreshments at the Marion game, and received fifty per cent of the returns from sales. The advisory periods were made more interesting for seniors by monthly programs. The class presented the extremely popular play. The Palsy, and also succeeded in giving 206 a new picture. It was in June that the class left Central, four years of progress behind it, and remembering well its motto: "Failure to prepare is preparation to fail.” JOSEPHINE WININGER, Class Historian.

Conditions change. High-geared production machinery has chased its slower, antiquated brother to the scrap heap. Now, seemingly unproductive modern office furniture lifts its head to be recognized. Old offices, assemblages of misfit pieces, arc rapidly giving way to Standardized Fine Office Suites which stimulate executives to more constructive thinking and planning. Fine Office Suites arc indicative of home comfort and freedom, harmonious in appearance and feeling. I.ikc well-groomed men they inspire confidence in ability and organization. They promote Good Will and have a definite share in the sales work. A fine business office — private or gcntral office — is visible evidence of success. It establishes credit, builds prestige and a feeling of responsibility — factors necessary to the growth of any organization. It encourages friendship, one of the foundations of any sale. The company that employs scientific sales methods never overlooks the favorable mental impressions to be created where no effort, only a little thoughtfulness, is necessary. A fine business offiicc is a sound business investment. For executives whose present-day success has outgrown their carlicr-day surroundings, the Boyce Office Engineering Service creates ensembles of gracious dignity — stately, rich and correct in every detail. Such complete office ensembles are outward expressions of success — symbols of achievement. BUSINESS EQUIPMENT DIVISION A. E. BOYCE COMPANY MANUFACTURERS Loose Leaf Devices, Forms, Bound Books.
