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. E4.. Presentation '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 school home. 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 asm. 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. Messenger, Jensen, Mrs. Marie Ruthenberg Confer with Students In the second picture to the left, Assistant Principal Marinus Jensen was giving admit slips to Keith Thomas and Bill Block. VVhen late to class, students had to get admits from the ofiice, and if they repeated this act too often they had to serve several eighth periods at eight o'clock in the morning . , . lVIrs. Ma1'ie Ruthen- berg, in the lower picture, was going over some reports with Lucille Burke, one of her assistants. As secretary, lVIrs. Ruthenberg's duties were many. VVhenever in doubt, students Went to her. 'CHI' ln the circle is a picture of Paul Geibel, sec- retary of the Board of Education, as he checked over Hgures concerning supplies with Ernest Liebbe, custodian of the high school . . .

Planners 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 Barnard, treasurer. ..g.. 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 library. 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. Partners FRED G.

"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 Davidson, secretary-treasurer. 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- lic appearances. Theresa Gallaher, Sarah Marie Young, Ruth Romann, Myron Brower, Ruth Mc- Caffrey, Art Talkington, Lysle Eichelberger, 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 school office. Sarah Marie's outstanding honor in high school was that of being Valedictorian. Wes- ley Hazlett w-as salutatorian and an enthusi- 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- and noise. Graduates of 1939 Present Representative Boy Q, 45J,J,f,47l ' I 4 Myron Brower, Junior 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 "Hi, joev as a greeting from one who is unusually loyal to those Whom he likes. Graduates of 1939 Present Representative Girl Grace Lenora ' Petersen 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. l Class of 1939 Follow Careers of Engineers i r saw ,f 1 ' ,. f' ff' Maid?

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 league-leaders. The Little Muskiesl success this year aroused new interest in the fall sport. - -43.. 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 Myers one.

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 skill. 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. -- 54.- 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- tery. 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.

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 tween halves. 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 Brower was acting vice-president.

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. C. A. 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. G. A. A.

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 Musky girls. 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.

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- ing secretary. ..62L 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 close. 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.

National Forensic League Is Small but Actlve .-g,3,- 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 and sophomore debates at Mount Pleasant and the annual girls' meet at Muscatine. Other debates during the season were dual debates with Mon- mouth, Illinois, lowa City High School, University High School of lowa City, and Maquoketa High School.

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.

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 XVeber. 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.

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 headlines. 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 M. 70 - 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. I"ir,rf Rocca' Clyde Lucas, Charles Colvin, David Berger.

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 travel talk. 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.

It was the girls Who invited their boy friends, asked for dances, got their partners' refreshments, and held the drinking fountains. At their Christmas party for the poor kiddies, the girls had fun Watching Santa Claus present Wide-eyed youngsters with practical and eng tertaining gifts bought or made by Hi4Tri members. The second annual dad and daughter banquet and a picnic in honor of the graduating seniors featured social activities this spring. Miss Hula Downer, dean of girls, Was the faculty adviser of this club, which was the largest in school. The members met for programs and busi- ness at the Y. XV. C.

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 Klein, vice-presidents, Betty Martin and Dottie McCullough, secretaries, lylaribel Green and June Jacobs, and treasurers, Carolyn Ruthenberg and Betty Grensing.

"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, Curia Regia is the oldest cluh in high school. This year the memlwers ohseryed the twenty-seventh anniversary of the organization.

Business Man, we present your future workers." The students 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.

Junior Ad Club Members Train for Future Jobs "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 were David Altenbernd and VVesley Hazlett, vice-presidents, YVesley Hazlett and Myron Brower, secretary-treasurers, Miriam SyVVassink and Paul Hankins.

"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.

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. Dramatlsts Present Plays for Festival, Class ln the snaps below, John Havercamp, the Camera artist, recorded eons trasting methods of amusement ..., HX t the upper left are two well-known people about school, who were registering curiosity as to what was going on: Ruth Romann and Marian Roth . . .

Game sales were habitual entertainment for Auroran staff members, three of whom appear at the lower right: Hvelyn Smalley, Juanita YVecksung, and Marian 'l'homas. Penny Dances, Prof, Game Sales, Sundaes Furnish Amusement ...37- Auroran advertisers hope that their ads create student interest. lt is ready enough proof that their ads have at- tracted attention When the students go into the places of business . . . Miss VVil- letta Strahan of the Nluscatine Junior College Was trying to interest Bob Schmalz in junior college, but from the look on Bob's face she Wasn't making much headway . . . Ruth Romann Was hoping to better her score at Bently's Bowling' Alleys. Auroran Advertisers Offer Opportunities To Musky Shoppers A place of business that concerns both young and old is the bank. Bob Barry was about to enter the Musca- tine Bank and Trust Company's bank when John Havercamp clicked his camera . . . To the right, Nlarla Gets tert, clerk at the C. Penney Store, was attempting to sell Helen Stevens son a swing skirt . . . Students are good buyers, and any store that can start a fad that becomes popular with either boys or girls is sure to please the stue dents as well as make a profit for the store. In the circle is a picture of John Havercamp, advertising manager of the Auroran, as he conferred with YValter Hendrickson, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce . . . Dr. Jerry Hathaway, secretary of the Muscatine County Dental Society, and Dr. XValter Norem, presi- dent of the Muscatine County Medical Society, were conversing with Minnie Blaesing and Muscatine High School Receives Loyal Support Of Business Men Jeanette Teeple ahout the services of their re- spective associations . . .
