The Senior Class
Muscatine High School
Business Manager-Mgron Brower

To the old high school building, with its colorful background of mem-
ories and associations, we dedicate this 1939 .'Xuroran.
As we pass through the halls and examine the awards in the trophy
cases and the pictures of class groups, many memories come to us, memor-
ies of victories, defeats, joys, sorrows. State basketball champions of 1926-
27, state cross-country champions of 1930, state basketball finalists of 19311-
31, and Bill Roach, whose friendliness and sportsmanship are perpetuated
by the trophy bearing his name, all pass in review.
ln the class groups are many faces which recall happy experiences. 'lihere
are many Who Were instrumental in bringing outstanding records and troph-
ies to the halls of Nluscatine High School. There are others who have
brought honors to Nluscatine by their achievements since graduation.
Changes may come, but they cannot be so great as to erase the mem-
ories and associations of this old building, which has formed the background
for the high school experiences of Muscatine people since 1896.
'lio the new high school building, presented by the people of Muscatine,
we give our salutations. In the picture below we see last minute prepara-
tions being made for the coming of those who will make this building their
ln the fall of 1939 Muscatine High School students will know the
thrill of beginning' their year in one of the finest high school buildings in
iowa. They will experience great pride in the beauty of their library, au-
ditorium, and gymnasium,
'lihe youthful occupants of the new building will know greater joy and
satisfaction in their high school life, particularly those who have known the
crowded conditions and limitations of the old building. ilihey will delight
especially in the better facilities for extracurricular activities such as plays,
speech work, music, and publications.
School activities of 1939--Hi will soon form the background of experie
ence necessary to make this building our school home. 'lio our future in
these splendid new surroundings we look forward with hope and enthusis
The top picture shows Principal Fred
G. Nlessenger with Nlyron Brower, pres-
ident of the Student Council, discussing
plans for the Student Council in the new
building. Perhaps lV1yron entered the
principal's office with the idea of telling
him about a council trial held for some
honor study hall offender, but no doubt
lVIr. hlessengefs conversation soon sides
tracked to the honor study hall and li-
brary that are in store for the Student
Council to manage next year.

Assistant Principal Marinus Jensen
was giving admit slips to Keith

class, students had to get admits from

too often they had to serve several
eighth periods at eight o'clock in the
morning . , . lVIrs. Ma1'ie Ruthen-

The board members pictured above were making one of their many
tours of the new school building. After securing a P. VV. A. grant for 4-5
per cent of the cost of the school, they put the question of granting the
remaining funds to the people for a vote, which carried more than four to
one. Before they received bids and awarded contracts for the general con-
struction, the material, the plumbing, and the electric wiring, the board
rearranged their plans for the building and made them definite. From
time to time they had meetings concerning such problems as labor costs and
types of materials to be used.
The final plans provide that the building have two wings, with each
room self-ventilated. Mastic floors reduce noise to a minimum in the
chemistry laboratory, the library, and the first floor rooms. There is a gym
which will seat 2500, an auditorium with a capacity of 1387, a cafeteria
accommodating 200, and a study hall and library combination seating
around 200. The building contains rooms for specialized activities such as
music, art, publications, and dramatics.
Uflicers of the Board of lfducation this year were Ray Dunker, presi-
dent, August Altenbernd, vice-president, Paul Geibel, secretary, and Glenn
Ered Messenger, principal of Muscatine High School, and A. A. John-
son, superintendent of schools, may well be said to have been partners this
year. Mr. Johnson has been busy attending to details that will make the
school in readiness for next September, and Mr. Messenger has been mak-
ing plans for administration in the new building.
The students and faculty will need to make many changes to adapt
themselves to new circumstances. Next year the students will hold their pep
meetings in the gym and other assemblies in the auditorium. They will be
required to take one hour of physical training a week. Mr. Messenger is
already reorganizing the Student Council to fir the needs of the new study
hall, which will seat more than twice as many as A-24 and operate in con-
junction with the librarian and the teacher in charge of the study hall in the
next room. Students will have access to open shelves of books around the
XVhen the public address system is installed in the high school it will be
possible to broadcast the bulletins, special announcements, and programs to
each room. Another new feature for next year will be the public concert
series. Three programs will be presented to the students during morning
assemblies and to the public in evening concerts.

"The last class to graduate from the old
high school" will be the method of referring
to the class of 1939. "Fortune favors the
brave" was the motto the group chose to
guide them, the American Beauty rose was
their Hower, and rose and silver, their colors.
The record of oflicers shows that the class
divided honors among a comparatively small
group of people during their four years in
high school: freshmen, Bill Narvis, presi-
dent, Ruth Romann, vice-president, Marvin
McConnell, secretary, and Fred Nesper,
treasurer, sophomores, Fred Nesper, presi-
dent, Ruth Romann, vice-president, and
Betty Martin, secretary-treasurer, juniors,
Myron Brower, president, Betty Martin, Vice-
president, and john Davidson, secretary-
treasurer, seniors, Grace Petersen, president,
Marvin McConnell, vice-president, and john
Dramatics and parties will be outstanding
in the memories of many of the graduates. As
sophomores they presented "The Man from
Brandon", as juniors, "Applesauce", and as
seniors, "The Youngest." Miss June Lingo
was their director in all of these productions
and Miss H. Margaret Kemble was in charge
of the stage crews.
As freshmen and sophomores the class of
1939 had parties in the game rooms at the
high school. An amateur program featured
their first-year party and a "question man"
broadcast and pictures of the members of the
class as infants furnished the fun in their sec-
ond-year frolic. As juniors and seniors they
turned to the less dignified pastime of roller
skating for their gala events.
Seniors on the opposite page all received
special honors from faculty and students.
Practically all of them were active in the eX-
tracurricular life of the school. Dorothy
Ziegler, Mary Etta Fulliam, and Bonnie
Watters were prominent in the music depart-
ment. Dorothy attained national recognition
when she entered the national music contest
as a piano and trombone soloist. Bonnie's
chief contribution was her violin work in the
orchestra and Mary Etta's was the accompani-
ment of vocal groups in their numerous pub-

Ruth Romann, Myron Brower, Ruth Mc-

Dorothy Ziegler, and Betty Brossart were all
instrumental in the success of publication
work. Theresa was general manager, Ruth
Romann, managing editor, Myron, business
manager, and Sarah Marie, copy editor. Ruth
McCaffrey directed the work for the editorial
page, and Art was the sports editor. Dorothy
reported music news for the weekly and Lysle
wrote about the activities of the Future
Farmer organization, in which he was especi-
ally active. Betty Brossart spent long hours
typing for the weekly before she accepted the
position of assistant secretary in the high
Sarah Marie's outstanding honor in high
school was that of being Valedictorian. Wes-

astic member of Chemistry Club.
Five other seniors in this group represent
a variety of activities. David Altenbernd de-
voted his extracurricular interest to Chemistry
Club, of which he was the president the first
half of this year. Grace Petersen and Miriam
SyWassink were prominent in declamation.
Miriam added the presidency of Seco to her
duties during the Hrst semester. Marvin Mc-
Connell represents the athletic interests, hav-
ing been prominent in both football and bask-
etball. Last to be mentioned, but not last to
be heard, is John Davidson, whose main in-
terest in life is playing the drums with swing
orchestras. Wherever John is there is fun-

Myron Brower, the representative senior boy, has a record of which he
may be proud. His activities indicate the variety of his interests: Student
Council, Auroran, Musky Letter Menis Club, Chemistry Club, Hi-Y, and
golf. His oflices indicate his popularity: president of Student Council and
of National Honor Society as senior, class president as junior, and Hi-Y
treasurer as sophomore.
lylyron has received outstanding honors: In his junior year the faculty
selected him for National Honor Society and the publication sponsor gave
him Quill and Scroll honors in recognition of his Work as business manager.
A fondness for sports, mathematics, and science marks Myron as a typ-
ical boy. His interests outside of school centered in sports. He was captain
of the golf squad this year and one of the most Valuable players. Basketball
and ping-pong were also often on his game calendar. His friends know his

Graduates of 1939 Present Representative Girl
Grace Petersen, the representative senior girl, impresses all who meet
her with her friendly personality and charming poise. She endeared herself
to faculty and students alike by the Willingness with which she accepted
responsibility and the efliciency with which she carried out her duties.
Speech work was her favorite held of activity. A superior rating for
her oratorical declamation, "Three Small Nations," in the Iowa Nine con-
test Was the high light of her efforts. Music also received a share of her
attention. She was a member of the girls' sextet as a junior and sang with
the chorus for three years.
Grace received other outstanding honors before her selection as repre-
sentative girl. Her senior classmates chose her for their president and her
schoolmates elected her for the Student Council. In her junior year the
faculty selected her for the National Honor Society. In her contributions
to high school activities Grace proved herself Worthy of the acclaim of both
students and faculty.

bluscatine was fortunate enough this year to have a successful football
team, one which finished in third position in the Little Six Conference.
After long, hard practice under the capable training of Coach Skip XVeber,
the Little bluskies proved their ability by piling up a string of victories.
Coach YVeber's boys opened the season with the defeat of Lone Tree,
38 to 6, after which they went on to defeat five of the Little Six teams.
Opening the Little Six against Keokuk, they won to the tune of a I3 to U
score. They defeated Fairfield, 24 to 12, and Burlington, 7 to 6. The
Little Muskies blanked Vilashington and Mt. Pleasant, trampling the for-
mer 2+ to O and the latter 38 to 0.
The last two games were heartbreakers. After such a successful season
the Little Muskies lost their two remaining games: one to the lit. Nladison
Bloodhounds, 6 to O, and the last one, 13-12, to the Ottumwa Bulldogs
after the Muskies had pushed across two touchdowns on the unscored-upon
The Little Muskiesl success this year aroused new interest in the fall
TYinning their final game, the Muscatine B squad football team ended
the 1938 season with one victory and two losses. Despite this unimpressive
record, the -ll hoys who reported to Coach Lefty Schnack gained the experi-
ence that is vitally necessary if they are to become good material for the
varsity team. They scrimmaged the A squad second and third stringers
regularly. The B squad schedule consisted of one game at home with the
Tipton reserves and two out of town, the VVilton homecoming and a game
with Mt. Pleasant.
Using its superior weight to good advantage, the Tipton outfit scored
three touchdowns in the first half and defeated the Muskies, 21 to 0.
Although Muscatine opened up in the second half to outplay their oppo-
nents, they were unable to score. Coach Schnack's charges dropped the next
game to VVilton, who rolled over the Muscatine team with a score of 19 to
9 in a night game.
After losing two games in a l'OW, the Muskies finally hit their stride,
downing Mt. Pleasant, 18 to U. Going to work early in the game, the ,u',,fV
Muskies piled up thiee touchdowns, Junior Lange scoiing two and

The selection of Texas Kidd, Musky guard, and LeRoy Jones, center,
for the first Little Six basketball team ended a highly successful year for
Coach Bob Kinnan's A squad. Little Six authorities also placed Glen Bloom,
forward, on the second conference team and awarded honorable mention to
Harold Riggs. ln addition to Little Six recognition, Texas also received
the honor of being named on the second all-state Des lVloines Register
team and on the third all-state Iowa Daily Press Association team.
For each game Coach liinnan appointed a temporary captain, and at the
end of the season the boys elected an honorary captain for the year. Play-
ers Whom the squad lost through graduation were John Sprouse and Nlarvin
McConnell. Since 1Vlarvin completed his high school work in january, the
team was Without his help during the second semester.
lVIusky Cagers Tie for First Place in Little Six
Proof of Coach Bob Kinnan's amazing ability to produce a good team
year in and year out was the 1938-39 basketball team. The Muskies ended
their regular season in a tie with lit. bladison for first place. After a bad
start and only a fair season, the Muskies won first place by playing good
basketball and getting a little help from l.ady l.uck.
XVith two games to play, the Little Nluskies were in second place, with
Ift. Madison in first with a two-game lead. The I.ittle Muskies defeated
Keokuk .U to 26 as lfairlield snapped Ift. bladisonls winning streak. The
next week, the Muskies scratched over lfairheld, 31 to 30, as lieokuk de-
feated lft. Madison.
Faced with the loss of offensive power in forming his team, Coach liins
nan utilized his defensive men by introducing the zone defense into the
Little Six games. This maneuver proved to be the factor which put the
Little Muskies on top as usual. High lights of the season were the victories
over lfranklin of Cedar Rapids, Z6 to 20, and Davenport, 24- to 17. lfrom
the latter victory the Nluskies received the Des Moines Register and Tri-
bune traveling trophy, which became their permanent possession when they
successfully defended it until the end of the regular season.

Musky Athletes Hold Golf, Tennis in High Favor
Golf rose high in favor with Muskies this year, both boys and girls
having displayed increased interest in the sport. The low price for high
school students at the Mad Creek Public Golf Course encouraged more of
them to learn to play the game.
VVith ranks swelled by several of the boys who learned to play golf last
summer and fall, the squad practiced daily at the Mad Creek course under
the supervision of Bob Fenton, the new coach. Coach Fenton built his team
upon the returning veterans, George Kammerer, John Havercamp, and My
Brower, last year's letter winner and this year's captain, and upon three par-
ticipants in the junior city tournament, Lawrence Korneman, Richard Klink,
and George Parks. Every boy interested received help in improving his
F. Howe, Muscatine tennis coach, had bright prospects for a success-
ful season after the enthusiastic response to his call for practice. Two
returning letter men, Captain Glen Bloom and diminutive George Parks,
were the nucleus for the 1939 team. Other veterans who reported included
Darrel Miller, Henry VVinslow, Kenny Schlipf, and Jack Davidson. Albert
Goss, a southpaw player with experience in the Muscatine Tennis Club,
and Jack Toussaint, husky sophomore, also played with the team.
Coach Howe scheduled matches with Rock Island, Burlington, and
other high schools. Tennis enthusiasts showed renewed interest this year in
securing all-weather courts, in order that Musky teams could play on an
equal basis with those of schools with asphalt courts.
Although track has fallen in importance since the advent of baseball
into the spring sports picture, it is still the best sport for building up speedy
football and basketball players, for it develops especially the legs and lungs.
livery boy can take part in some form of track work, for the physical re-
quirements range from speed and endurance in running to muscular strength
in hurling the shot put.
In the Little Six Indoor track meet, the most important contest which
Nluscatine entered, Kenneth Church won first place in the high hurdles.
Ostrander and Tierney were two outstanding members of the team not
present when the picture was taken.
The third season of baseball since its return to Muscatine High School
activities had a dismal beginning. The job of constructing an almost entirely
new team faced Coach Bob Kinnan, for nearly all of last year's A squad
had graduated. His greatest problem was scarcity of material for the bat-
The Sprouse boys from Conesville comprised the battery for the first
game, Junior pitching and Don catching. Junior pitched a no-hit game
against Letts, but lost 2 to 0 by walks and errors. Other pitching prospects
were Fred Nesper, a last year's letter winner, who could also play infield,
Harry Hindahl, a husky freshie, and Vernon Hoffman, a left-handed
twirler and last year's letter winner. Other returning veterans included
Tex Kidd, Bob Nlohnsen, Don Milholin, and Richard Rueckert.

lVIusky Letter Men's Club Aids Athletic Program
One of the most active clubs in the high school this year was the newly
organized Nlusky Letter lVlen's Club, recently revived after some years of
disbandment. Quite different from earlier groups, with their grueling
physical initiations to mark them as distinctive, this organization proved to
be a great aid in the athletic program. During the fall their outstanding
contribution was that of directing the crowds at the football games. They
also saw to it that spectators kept off the field during the playing and bei
This organization sponsored the chief athletic event of the year, at least
from a faculty viewpoint. On this occasion the instructors succeeded in de-
feating the letter men at basketball by a score of 16 to 12. Such stars as
Principal F. G. Messenger, Assistant Principal Marinus Jensen, "Professor"
lValter Satterthwaite, Bob Fenton, Bob Kinnan, Lefty Schnack, and Skip
XVeber upheld the honor of the teachers against the members of the letter
club not playing on the basketball A squad.
The club began its year of activities by electing the following members
for officers: president, Kenny Gunnarson, vice-president, Bob YVeber, and
secretary-treasurer, Glen Bloom. During the football season lVlyron

Things happened thick and fast this year in the Girls' Athletic :Xssocif
ation under the able leadership of the new physical education director, Miss
Genevieve Millett, graduate of XVilliam Penn College. The purpose of
this club is to give each girl in high school an opportunity to broaden her
education by participation in some favorite sport. Because the program
offered more activities than formerly and utilized the sixth period, more
girls than ever before, 200 in number, reported to the gym at the Y. XV.
A swimming play day at Iowa City arranged by the Seals' Club of the
University of Iowa and a held play day at Davenport sponsored by Davens
port High School girls climaxed the year's programs. The schedule started
out with a volleyball tournament, in which the team headed by Alyce Breed-
love won the honors. Later a ladder ping-pong tournament took place, with
Margaret Ann YVagner emerging the victor.
The awarding of school letters and state pins was based on a merit sys-
tem in which a girl received four points for every hour of participation in
some sport. A member could also earn points by ofhciating at some school
tournament. Letters rewarded the attainment of 5110 points, and state pins
represented 10470 points.

Volleyball, basketball, tumbling, and bowling were favored sports for
Musky girl athletes this year. Miss Genevieve Millett, physical education
instructor at the Y. VV. C. A., was in charge of all their classes and teams.
The girls heralded basketball and volleyball with new interest and devel-
oped greater skill through weeks of practice. Intramural contests and
tournaments with employed girls' teams featured activities in both sports.
Badminton, deck tennis, and shuflieboard were also on the game lists for
The pyramids of Cheops have lasted for centuries, but those attempted
by the amateur girl tumblers generally lasted but a few seconds. They
often resulted in grand spills and mix-ups of arms, bodies, and legs. How-
ever, the girls learned through practice to build difiicult formations,
Bowling was a new sport introduced to Muscatiiie High School girls
this year, and one which became very popular. Enough girls turned out to
form five teams of about five members each. The teams and their mem-
bers with highest averages were as follows: lflreshies, Mary Keating, 98,
Butcherettes, Ruth Romann, 101, Pla Mor Ramblers, Mary McConnell,
108, Spooks, june Jacobs, 100, Strikers, Lucille Eaton, 100.
Miss Millett has made plans to conduct interest groups throughout the
summer in which girls will meet for activities such as swimming, tennis,
kittenball, hiking, and bicycling.

Students of Muscatine High School who have participated in dramatic
and forensic work are eligible for membership in the Speech Arts Club. The
faculty advisers, Miss June Lingo, Miss H. Margaret Kemble, and G. Brad-
ford Barber, recommend the outstanding participants in dramatics, stagecraft,
and forensics for membership in this organization.
Speech Arts members had a regular business meeting on the second
Thursday of each month and evening social hours twice during the year.
Other social functions generally include entertaining the visiting exchange
play casts. During the past year the high light of these activities was the
banquet for the lowa City one-act play cast and 40 members of the Iowa
City speech club. Features of the program for this event were the after-din-
ner speeches and a "man on the street,', who asked humorous questions both
of the local representatives and of the visitors.
During the hrst semester the officers were Sydney Thomas, president,
Derrine Bieber, vice-president, Rosalie Tuttle, secretary, Leland Swalford,
treasurer, and Ruth Romann, recording secretary. During the second se-
mester Lyle Lupton was president, Emma Klein, vice-president, Marian
Thomas, secretary, Dayton Howe, treasurer, and Dorothy Powell, record-
One of the smallest groups in Muscatine High School, yet one of the
most active, is the National Forensic League, a national honorary forensic
organization. Students who participate actively in interschool competition
in debate, declamation, extemporaneous speaking, and oratory receive credit
points which apply toward their membership. During the past year the
membership increased from six at the beginning of the year to eighteen at the
As students advance in the organization they receive diliierent degrees
according to the number of points they have earned. Three of the local
chapter, Derrine Bieber and Annette Lewin, juniors, and Albert Goss, a
sophomore, have received the 150 points required for the degree of distinc-
tion, the highest offered by the national organization. lalsther Schultz and
Dorothy Powell both have the degree of excellence, representing lllll points.
Everett Plageman, Leo Baker, Sydney Thomas, and YValter Berg have
earned the degree of honor, having received 50 points in competition.
The principal social function of this orgzzniration is its annual spring
banquet, at which time a pin with the proper iewel is awarded to the out-
standing speaker of the group. This year Albert Goss received the pin.
The ofhcers were Annette Lewin, presdent, Dorothy Powell, secretary, and
Albert Goss, corresponding secretary. Faculty advisers were Miss H. Mara

National Forensic League Is Small but Actlve
Debating Attraets Unusual Number of Students
Debating this year attracted more than the average number of students
into the held of interscholastic activities. During the entire season Z0 high
school students participated in a total of ll-I- debates with other schools
in southeastern lowa and central lllinois. The climax of the season was
reached at the National lforensic League tournament held at Uskaloosa,
Iowa, on April 15 when atlirmative and negative teams Won the unanimous
decisions, thereby earning the right to enter the National Speech Tournae
ment to be sponsored by the National lforensic League in Beverly Hills,
California, June 19 to 23.
During the seasonls activities debaters from M. H. S. participated in
nondecision tournaments at Mount Pleasant, lowa, and at Coe College,
Cedar Rapids, lowa. They also entered the following major decision tour!
naments: Newton, lowa, Augustana College, Rock lsland, lllinois, subdisw
trict, lowa City, district, Burlington, lowa Nine, OttumWa5 and the Nae
tional lforensic League, Uskaloosa. Minor tournaments Were the freshman

Grace I'etersen's superior rating i11 the Girls' Iowa Nine contest for her
oratorical declamation, "Three Small Nations,', was the most highly prized
victory i11 lVluscatine High School declamation this year. lVIiriam SyVVas-
sink and Rosalie Tuttle received ratings of good in the Girls' Iowa Nine,
and Archie King, Gordon McLean, and Sydney Thomas rated good in the
Boys' Iowa Nine.
Another outstanding victory for lVIuscatine was that of Albert Goss in
extemporaneous speaking. He placed second in the district contest a11d
fourth in the state. Sydney Thomas, Everett Hageman, and Albert Goss
entered the quin-city extemp contest and tied for sixth place among 38
I11 the state series Grace Petersen, Theresa Gallaher, and Adaline Per-
ki11s, who had won the school elimination, won second place in the prelim-
inary. In the county contest Marie VVeikert, Iimma Klein, and Anita
Schmidt earned the right for Muscatine to keep the county trophy for the
eighth consecutive year.
In the dual contest with Davenport Muscatine was Nllt so fortunate. The
boys lost and the girls broke CVCII for honors. Out of the six Muscatine
boys who entered the oratorical division of the quin-city declamation con-
test, Albert Goss reached the finals.

"lVIeatballs for allv was the slogan
of the Hi-Y boys. They might add
that they waited for no one5 so late-
eomers were out of luck. At their
noon meetings the boys sometimes
abandoned their gentlemanly man-
ners. One member would just as soon
help himself to his neighbor's por-
tions as not-especially to his dessert.
However, when there was a guest
speaker present the boys usually acted
a little more dignified. At the time of

been a guest present-or else the Y's

National Honor Society Signifies High Achievement
The highest honor given by the faculty was the achievement of the 22
members of the National Honor Society. The teachers judged junior and
senior students who ranked in the upper scholastic fourth of their class and
with whom they had had personal contact, on the basis of leadership,
service, and character.
The six graduates who received the honor as juniors were Myron
Brower, Theresa Gallaher, Grace Petersen, Ruth Romann, Sarah Marie
Young, and Dorothy Ziegler. jean Vlligim, the seventh junior chosen by
the faculty last year, moved to California. In January the faculty selected
eight additional seniors and eight juniors. The seniors were David Altens
bernd, Betty Brossart, Lysle liichelberger, Mary litta lfulliam, Ruth Me
Calfrey, Arthur Talkington, Miriam SyVVassink, and Bonnie Wlattersg the
juniors Were Lorma Gallaher, Margaret Heitz, Dayton Howe, Annette
Lewin, Carolyn Ruthenberg, Evelyn Smalley, Sydney Thomas, and Bob
The initiation of the new members of National Honor Society formed
the most effective part of the class day program. lf. Ci. Messenger and stu-
dents Who Were members in 1937-38 conducted the ritual. Officers selected
this year were president, lVlyron Brower, viceepresident, Dorothy Ziegler,
secretary, Theresa Gallahcr, treasurer, Sarah lNlarie Young, and historian,

"The choice of the people" appears in the group ahove. At the hegintf
ning of the year the students in each of the tirst tive periods in the honor
study hall elected tive students to constitute the Student Council for the
school year. The main task of the council was to conduct the honor study
hall. The governing group made rules for the students to follow and held
trials for those that hroke the rules. If the defendant was proved guilty,
he gave up his place in the honor study hall permanently and entered a
study hall supervised by a teacher.
Another duty of the Student Council was the supervision of the halls.
l"our years ago the student governing group instigated a system of corridor
permits which was still in use this year. Hall monitors appointed hy the
council checked the numher of minutes students Were out of classes or study
halls and marked those that were overtime. A Student Council memher
reported for eighth periods those Who had taken more than their allotted
time. Officers this year were Myron Brower, presidentg Ruth Romann,
vice-president3 and Arthur Talkington, secretaryetreasurer.

Wlihe bunch that was in everything" Was the Auroran stalT. lt had
members in practically every club and activity that the school offered. Per-
haps they made a practice of participating in the alifairs of various organiza-
tions so that they could cover all the news. Students on the staff had a
varied experience. They Wrote editorials, news, features, and sport stories,
and they read copy and proof before the stories were ready for the printer.
liditors of the pages had practice in planning the make-up and in Writing
The business staff members had valuable training. Those on the adver-
tising staff contacted business men and tried their selling power. After sell-
ing the ads they made up the copy for the print shop and arranged the
advertising dummy. They also kept records of their advertising accounts
and collected bills monthly. The business manager and his assistant took
complete charge of paying bills and keeping an accurate account of all finan-
cial alfairs of the publications.
The Auroran stall published the Weekly paper and the yearbook. The
Weekly received support from the activity ticket and advertising. The year-
book income included the money made from selling at the games as Well
as that from club payments, advertising, and subscription.
Auroran Staff Members Have Varied Experience

Auroran Cubs Prepare for Staff Positions
"The little bearsv was the title that Auroran stall members often gave
the Auroran Cubs, freshmen and sophomores who were interested in pre-
paring for future positions on the regular fluroran stall. During the year
the "little bears" made a study of various types of writing and of exchange
papers published by other high schools.
The group carried on a number of projects. David Berger kept a rec-
ord of how many times each student's name was mentioned in the weekly
in order that the stall could know how well they were representing the
student body. All of the group studied journalism books and kept notee
books of clippings of various types of news leads and stories. Toward the
latter part of the year each cub selected the particular type of writing in
which he was most interested and attempted stories for publication.
Mary Ann Hakes, who joined the cubs after the picture was taken,
served as assistant to the regular exchange editor by arranging exchange pa-
pers for display and writing articles for the paper. Myron Brower, busi-
ness manager, trained Stanley Howe, another latecomer, to be a valuable
assistant to him. Mariaii Kautz, another cub, spent many hours assisting
Theresa Gallaher, the general manager, in yearbook work.

The theme of Hi-Tri for this year was friendship. it each meeting
the leaders built a worthwhile program around this central idea, featuring
either international relations or personal friendships. At the November
meeting Elmer Nelson discussed current alfairs. lfior another program four
girls from the M. H. S. debate squad staged a debate. In October Miss
Marion Musser, appearing in native Austrian costume, gave an interesting
Hi-Tri members learned to be better friends through other programs.
ln December, girls of the advanced sewing classes under the direction of
Miss Helen Sweet presented a style show. "lt's Nice to Know How" was
a playlet given at one meeting by members of Hi-Tri and I". lf. A. Per-
haps one of the most interesting programs centered around the subject of
vocations. YYomen with actual experience in varied types of work spoke

Hi-Tri Members Enjoy Soclal Work, Partles
f'The secretary will now call the roll" sounded the call for Hi-Y club
members to forget meatballs and turn to more serious considerations. Voa
cational guidance speakers appeared on a number of the programs of this
organization this year, discussing the good and bad points of various pro-
fessions. The boys had one joint dinner meeting with the Phalanx and Y's
Menls clubs to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the local Y. M. C. fl.
liour out-of-town events varied the Hi-Y schedule this year. A num-
ber of the group went on two educational trips, one to the state hospital at
Mt. Pleasant and the other to the John Deere plant at Moline, Illinois.

The unusual array of an apron, a rolling pin, two diiierent shoes, a
red letter S on the forehead, and a big hair ribbon that marked the ap-
pearance of new Seco members was only a part of the initiation the girls
received. After a day of fun the initiates laid away their freak costumes
and began to profit from the more serious program of the organization.
Seco aims to meet the needs of girl students who are interested in home-
making activities. The scope of the work of the organization is much broader
than that suggested by the name Seco, a combination of the lirst two letters
of sewing and cooking. This year the girls profited from varied and inter-
esting programs on such subjects as good grooming, care of the health, artis-
tic flower arrangement, and methods of judging good hosiery.
The meetings of the club occurred on the first Tuesday of each month.
Social events were a Christmas party and a farewell picnic for senior mem-
bers. Presidents for the two semesters were Miriam SyXVassink and Emma

"l"riends, Romans, and countrymen." Here is a cluli that was orf
ganized to develop a greater appreciation of the Romans and the Latin lan-
guage. The members were Latin students classified as sophomores, uniors,
or seniors. Miss H. Margaret Kemhle, Latin instructor, directed plans for
their meeting on the first Wlednesday of each month. The cluli initiated
niemlaers in the fall and spring at impressive candlelight services.
Various interesting subjects featured the monthly programs. ln the fall
the group turned their attention to mythology. Later in the year they made a
study of the life of Julius Caesar and of the social life, architecture, and
army of the Romans. To illustrate these topics they used slides,

that made up the Junior .Kd Club were those interested in going out into
the business World and getting jobs. The organization is patterned after
the Senior Ad Club, which is composed of business men of this city. In the
fall it was the pleasure of the Junior Ad members to be the guests of the
Senior Ad at one of their lVednesday noon meetings. Junior Ad gave a
return luncheon in the spring. On their program they had speeches, a
playlet on the correct and incorrect methods of selling shoes, and a "man
on the street" broadcast.
Under the capable supervision of their adviser, l". ll. Howe, the club
met on the first and third Thursdays of each month for programs featuring
discussions of correct advertising, selling, store management, and business
affairs in general. Presidents for the two semesters were Ruth Romann

"Use sodium bicarbonate and sulfuric acid to produce carbon dioxide
and water vapor plus sodium sulfate," said VValter Satterthwaite, adviser
of the reorganized Chemistry Club, as he performed a spectacular experi-
ment as a portion of the program of one of their meetings which marked
the third Vllednesday of each month. The Chemistry and Camera clubs
decided to combine this year, but since there were more chemistry enthusi-
asts than camera fans the group devoted the maj ority of their programs to
chemical subjects. However, spurred on by such camera lovers as John
Havercamp, the group did turn their attention on occasion to photography.
A number of the members of the Chemistry Club were also members
of the chemistry class taught by Mr. Satterthwaite and famed for its num-
ber of "bright-witted" seniors. As proof of their brilliance he can tell of
some of their "punny" puns and pranks. Presidents for the two semesters

"Twenty, twenty, who'll bid twenty-Five? Do l hear twenty-Eve?"
would be apt to be what one would have heard if he had stepped into a
Stamp and Hobby Club meeting during a regular stamp auction. Besides
auctioning their stamps the members also did considerable trading. lf one
had a French collection, for instance, he would put out his stray stamps for
other French stamps.
The purpose of the organization is to promote interest in various hob-
bies, but the majority of the members this year had their interest centered
on stamps. ln fact, the nucleus of the organization of this club in the fall
of the present school year was a group of students who had been meeting
to exchange stamps, under the direction of Clark Brown. ln order to
achieve a more definite program he organized the group into the Stamp
and Hobby Club.
Presidents for the two semesters were Esther Schultz and Darrel Miller,
vice-presidents, Herbert Toussaint and Esther Schultz, secretary-treasurers,
Paul Carpenter and Herbert Toussaint, sergeants at arms, Chester Rhodes
and Thomas Young.

their annual Watermelon feed at Rotary Lodge, with the county eighth
grade boys as guests. Other activities were the judging of livestock, a corn-
husking contest, and grain, fruit, and vegetable shows.

For their class play, the juniors presented "Take My Advice," a three-
act comedy. The proceeds Went to help meet expenses of the junior-senior.
The plot of the play centered around the Weaknesses of the members of the
Wleaver family. Ma's failing was numerology and Pa's was fraudulent
stock salesmen. The stage bug had bitten the daughter, Ann, and a local
vampire had almost proved the undoing of the son, Bud. It was Professor
Clement who finally rescued the family from the several rackets.
"Babbitt's Boy," the one-act contest play, received a rating of good at
the Iowa City play festival. The setting of the play, which portrayed the
troubles of a typical American family, Was the Briggs' breakfast room on
Sunday morning. VVilliam Briggs, home from one year of college, was
putting on a high-brow act before his family. lt took the realization that
he was losing his girl friend, Louise, to bring him out of his conceit.
