Wk£C P J P - y- FOREWORD ' THE FUTURE is constantly unfolding into the present, just as the present is ever revert- ing to the past. All too soon our high school life will glide into the land of memories. It is our desire that through this book this land of memories be one of sunshine rather than shadow. If, in the future, so full of opportunities and adventures, we realize the gratification of our ideals, let us remember the foundations of these ideals originated during the years we spent here. Therefore, we have attempted to record and portray such events and scenes as will afford the choicest memories of this past year. 3 ?

P -i P CLASSES SENIOR CLASS SONG There ' s a school that shall live on forever, As the years fade away in the gloam. Yet its mem ' ries grow dearer and fairer, As away from its class-room we roam. No poem could be more inspiring Than the sight of that stately old school ; Just a spot in my heart that ' s undying That Muscatine High that is mine. Tho ' we must say goodbye, a lingering adieu, To your pleasures and spirit, too, Musky High we all love you; Just a song from the hearts of the class of ' 28, No other class so large is known. ' Till we come back to you — old school — to you, We ' ll dream of your friendships good and true, But now it ' s farewell; God bless you and keep you safe Until we meet again.

After inquiring about the quality of the show, he was ushered to his seat by Maxine Field. It seemed almost mythical to meet so many friends at once. She told him that Louise Johnson and Marjorie Bowser were ushering in the tenth balcony. In a few minutes the electric sign announced Jimmic ' s Jazzy Jazz- Hounds.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY " Among Our Souvenirs " It was snowing and blowing outside, but Julia Spickler and Ferris Warman sat. comfortably beside the jircplace in Julia ' s home. " Do you know, Ferris, that it has been seven years since we graduated from Muscatine High School? I surely wish just thousands of times that I were back, struggling- and blurring my way again. " All this from Julia, who sat with a reminiscent look on her face. " Yes, " sighed Ferris, " we certainly had some wonderful times in dear old M. H. S. However, we didn ' t realize it then. Why, Julia, sometimes when I ' m home alone I get out my memory hook and look over all my souvenirs from my high school days, and the memories they bring back are worth a fortune to me. " " That has given me a bright idea ! I ' m going to get out my box of high school souvenirs, and we ' ll look through it. " Julia hurried away and soon returned with a large box, " chuck " full of ribbons, paper caps, clippings, pictures, and favors. " What ' s this: " Julia stooped and picked up a little piece of white paper. " Oh, yes, it ' s my schedule slip for the first day I was in high school. That was in 1 92+, w as n ' t it: Will you ever forget that miserable feeling of being so dumb and, at the same time, feeling quite grown up? And did I get into the wrong rooms that first day ; The blunders I made were positively dreadful ! " " Oh, dear, " laughed Ferris, " can you remember our first Slouch Day: Did you e er see so many crazy outfits in your life: Why, here ' s your fa or from the freshman party — our first high school party — how we worked to make the Old Woodman Hall look presentable for the big event. Remember the little play some of the girls gave, in which Twila slipped into profanity, and " Sis " Musser had to learn to talk with a corn-cob pipe in her mouth ? " " Ray Tucker was our class president that year, wasn ' t he : " " Yes, and Buck Mclntyrc was our sophomore president. " " Oh, look ! Ferris, this is my napkin from the first all-high school parly. Didn ' t w e have a good time at the Armory Hall that night: Say, wasn ' t it in our sophomore year that all the boys wore overalls to school and the girls put on aprons and hair ribbons: The high school looked like a country school. " " I know something else that happened during that year. We joined the literary societies — ' and what " cruel " initiations we were given ! See, here ' s my Aeolian pin. That seems to be-all of my souvenirs from my sophomore year, so let ' s go on to our junior year. Ray was president again, wasn ' t he: " " Oh, yes. I lere ' s your program from the Junior Class play, ' Miss Somebody Else ' — a roaring comedy well given. That was something new introduced into the school to make some money so the expenses for Junior-Senior Banquet wouldn ' t be so grca . It certainly helped out a lot. " " Oh, look! " Julia exclaimed. " These are the clippings from the newspapers telling about the State Basketball Champions. Will you ever forget what a wonderful basketball team we had that season : We were the Little Six champs that year, too. As long as I live I don ' t believe I ' ll ever forget all those thrilling games, and the final celebration. We had a parade in the afternoon and the big bonfire and the dance in the evening. " " Oh, Julia, here ' s your favor and dance program from the Junior-Senior Banquet in ' 27. How we worked to make the ' Circus ' a big success. I think everyone had a good time that night. Do you remember how lovely the dining room at the Elks ' Club looked with all the balloons, little tents, aid streamers of all colors: It did look like a big circus tent, didn ' t it : " " Now for our Senior Year. That was by far the best year of all, wasn ' t it ? What wonder 1 ul times we did have that year. The senior class of ' 2S was very congenial. Everyone seemed to be everyone else ' s friend. Wasn ' t that last week wonderful: It will hold its own in the heart and memory ' if every senior. " " The night of Baccalaureate all the seniors marched in, looking very solemn and w rt ery. Remember? " " I ' ll never forget that. And here ' s your program from the Junior-Senior of ' 23. The juniors certainly showed us a good time that night. " " Everyone seemed to have a good time at the senior picnic that year, too — and what good eats we had. " 11 Is this rose from your corsage : The one you w ore to the Alumni Dance : " ' ' W-s.. That ' s the one. " " Last of all came Commencement. How sad everyone looked that night. Our high school days were over and thoughts of the future prevailed in our minds. We were all setting sail upon the sea of career that night. " " That completes my collection of high school souvenirs. I wonder where all the seniors of the Class of ' 28 arc and w hat they are doing now, " mused Julia. THE SENIOR CLASS PLAY The Senior Class Play, " The Hoodoo " , was a three act tarce centering around the approaching marriage of Brighton Early to a young heiress, Amy Lee. Amusing complica- tions developed when Early ' s only relative, Professor Spiggot, came to the wedding party and gave as a present an old mummified beetle, which was said to have the power of bringing good to the owner, provided it was buried in the ground twenty-four hours before being worn. Brighton disregarded the instructions, and the disfavor of the great god, Osiris, fell on the members of the household. More trouble was forthcoming when Dodo, an actress and an old " flame " ot Early ' s, showed up and threatened to expose him if he did not give her thirty thousand dollars. To top all this, a burglar appeared and had the entire house- hold in a commotion. The amusing situations, coupled with an air of mystery, tended to make " The Hoodoo " an excellent comedy and a laugh provoker. ♦o« " THE HOODOO " Brighton Early Bernard Evcrsmeyer Billy Jackson Walter Hunn Professor Solomon Spiggot Clarence Hebard Hcmachus Spiggot ■ Martin Weiss Mr. Malachi Meek Harold Timm Mr. Dun Byron Beitel Miss Amy Lee Helen King Gwendolyn Perrington-Shine Helen Shields Mrs. Perrington-Shine .■ Bernice Evcrsmeyer Dodo DeGraft Beatrice Vetter Mrs. Ima Clinger Lucille Sawyer Angelina Julia Spickler Miss Doris Ruffles ' Wanda Schwandkc Mrs. Semiramis Spiggot Twila Anderson Eupepsia Helen Berg Miss Longnccker Ferris Warman Lulu Ruth Reesink Aunt Paradise Genevieve Phillips ? « g gf ?-ifP £P r P , . ? yifej 7 Z Z gD PJ J .-J .

FORENSIC LETTER CLUB Previous to 1928 Muscatine High School has entered various contests, but heretofore there has been no local organization. However, this year has seen great advancement in our forensic work. The Forensic Letter Club, to which all those having either major or minor literary letters may belong, has been organized. The purpose of this organization is to pro- mote forensic activities and to stimulate an interest in them.

LETTER CLUB The Letter Club is composed of men that have gained the coveted " M " by virtue of participation in the various athletic fields. The letter, a six-inch block, is made of purple chenille on a gold background. The major letter is, in most cases, very hard to earn. It takes months of work and train- ing, and yet it is worth far more than that. To earn a letter in basketball the possessor must plav five halves in five Little Six games. In football he must play over half the games on the schedule, and in track he must place in any one meet. William Mclntyre William Havcmann Harry Loren .
