Kuehne Miss Catherine Ball M f' - 1 The Technical igh School has provided for its students unusual opportunity to secure counsel and advice, not only in choosing courses of study or a suitable college, but also in the selection of a life job and the actual securing of a local job. The Counselors' office, in charge of Mrs. Henderson and Miss McEvoy, can advise parents and students on the comparative value and suitability of shop courses, commercial courses, art courses, or general academic courses. Requirements for graduation and for college entrance may be explained here. This office undertakes to straighten all program tangles and to make special partftime programs for the boy or girl whom economic necessity forces to work part of each day. The Bureau of Vocational Guidance, under the direction of Mr. H. K. Kuehne, performs two interrelated functions. One of these is to counsel students, both individually and in groups, with a view to aiding the stu- dents in the selection of vocations. The other function is to make surveys of the businesses of the city for the purpose of ascertaining what types of work are being done in the city, or are likely to be done during the next five or ten years, and the kinds of training desirable for the various occupa- tions. The cumulative findings of these surveys will serve as a substantial basis for making the further changes and additions, which are sure to be made in the curriculum of our new Technica-l High School, already unique among high schools of the country. The Placement Bureau, under the supervision of Miss Ball, is the connecting link between the school and the business world. By keeping constantly in touch with the industrial and commercial life of Dallas, this bureau knows what the local possibilities of employment are. In the near future, after a survey is completed, this bureau will furnish data on kinds and possible number of junior positions open in Dallas, the general requirements of these jobs, and the possibilities for promotion. Positions with definite futures are sought for graduates not going to college and for any other students who must leave school permanently. The securing of part-time work makes it possible for many to remain in school who need to help with support of families. The Bureau endeavors to secure for Technical High students the choicest employment opportunities for which their respective personalities and training fit them. l8l N FACULTY BALL, KATHERINE C.

With the closing of the iirst year, the new school has become a real technical high school. Several departments are maintained especially to give technical work which is not available in other schools. In the industrial department there is a print shop, a machine shop, an auto mechanics class, a sheet metal shop, a foundry, a wood shop, and a drafting room. In the commercial department there is a typing room, a machine bookkeeping room, a general bookkeeping room, a stenographic room, a business practice room, a commercial art room, and an art pottery room. In the home economics there are two cooking and three sewing labor- atories. ' All pupils entering the school as freshmen are required to spend the first two years in getting a general knowledge of several of the activities in one of the three departments. In addition, about half the time is spent in the regular academic work of high school, such as English and mathe- matics. Beginning with the third year, the pupil makes up a course to suit his needs, specializing in some line such as printing, machine shop, commer- cial art, accounting, or any of the others prescribed above. - The aim of Tech. High is two-fold: lirst, to help pupils choose the work they can best dog and second, to prepare them to be good citizens and to earn a living in their chosen work. Illl TECH.

But then, my good folk, since the spring air is balmy and my head feels the same way, I'll oblige you-oh yes! And how- To begin with, since there is not a gleam of silver in my palm, my eyesight may be dim as rega-rds the future, but here goes. Ah, methinks I see a tall and stately figure, pacing slowly before a tent on the battle field, his bosom covered with ribbons and medals, that man is John Graham, and he won his medals by making a goal in the Army-Navy game after sinking a battleship on the football field. , No, no, that can't be right-but I said-the silver. Ah, all right- , Our obese friend, Effie Cumings? Ah, her journalistic actvities were such that she now fills-yes, fills-one of the most famous chairs in the land, that of editor of the Whiz Bang. Ah, I see another face in the crystal, Isabelle Rochelle playing oppo- site Gelert Hughes in "Her Last Chance." Sarah Edge has been disap- pointed in love and is now spending her time in fasting and prayer. Carol Mansfield, the second "Calvert", will visit his beloved, Velma Maxwell the dancer, some time in the near future. My stars, the shapes come crowding around! Dallas Tech. must have been the cradle for the famous of the land. James McClung, Army Lingo Expert, is now commandant of the Clung's Heights Military Academy at Mesquite. Edith Miers, in Paris, is vainly trying to convince her irate parent that her drawings are pure art. Royall Meroney and Joyce English have taken themselves to the stage where they have become quite proficient in the adagio. . They are visiting the city with Roy Fair's great show, "Fair's Follies." Frazier Edmonds is the costume designer with the troupe, and all the mechanical details of the production are faithfully attended to by Gladys Pringle. Roy Hargrave, the scientist, has discovered a process by which the leaves of trees may be transformed into women's clothing. He says he will run the cost of high living down by clothing his wife, the former Allena Barrett in the same. Roy Smith and Warner Harper are co-editors of Printer's Ink. Louis Kersey, nicknamed the "Cub", is now known as the "Tobacco Volstead", because he tried to make smoking illegal. Gordon M. Martin, Ken Mooney, and Vincent Ondrunshek, the unbeat- able trio of lawyers, are engaged at present in trying to assuage the hurt feelings of Howard Reed. Mr. Reed is suing Mildred Newman for heart balm. Allie Merle Gill decided that two could fiy as cheaply as one, I19l 4A SENIOR PROPHECY-Continued so she and Murray Milner have made their way via airplane to Paris, where Madame Milner buys her frocks from the American modiste, Helen Dindore, who can out-French the French in manufacturing American gowns. Jamie Barnesis a missionary in Africa, and they say her philosophy of religion is so powerful that everything in Africa save one tse tse fly has been converted. She'11 get that one yet. John Baxter, the tin plate king, has a new advertising agent with new ideas, none other than Philip Bosco. Mr. Bosco wrote some admirable copy, to Wit: "Crown hubby with a plate-it pays." Unfortunately, Mrs. Baxter, the former Frances Hodge, took it to heart and crowned hubby with a plate, but it wasn't tin, and now John is nursing a cut on his right ear. A Willie D. Bomar turned detective. She tried to figure out the cause of music haunting Robert Gerlach, the McKinney band leader. She finally decided that he murdered it. Herbert Hahnl and Alline Haswell are in China trying to compute the number of dishes of chow mien consumed per hour. William Russ and Floyd Smith are playing in the Dirty Spoon Cafe in Matamoras, Mexico. Bereaved by the sudden marriage of Murray, Mose Thyfault deter- mined to end 'it all. He decided to fly across the Trinity river, a virtually impossible feat. He thought he'd never reach the other side, but he did and became a hero. Logan Smith, the mathematician, has been figuring the mileage ever since. Dorothy Boyd, Madeline Peacock, Lucille Powell and Lois Miller are giving concerts before the crowned heads of Europe under the managa- ment of M. E. Hendricks. Horace Hood is commandant of West Point, and his old friend, Char- les Word, is the Secretary of War under President Wells. Annie Ragsdale and Ramon Franco are operating a travel bureau and Ralph P. Walker, the playwright, has given -them full charge of his tours to the cities of the world. ' The crystal is blank again, as blank as my mind. But now, my friends, the silver-the silver, here in my palm? No? Such is fortune, my friends 3 she is fickle. E201 4B SENIORS WILLIAM :ADDINGTON Born August 1, 1911, Quinlan, Texas.

Your Future Read." This was the Wording on the neat sign I saw tacked on the door of a house as I was Walking along the street. I secured an appointment with the Professor, and then asked him to give me the low-down on my former classmates. He glanced at the names, pawed among the mass of papers on his desk, made some calculations, and then began: ' "Well, Eric Robert is now captain of the Texas Rangers, and is assisted by his aides, Jack Collins, Horace Hood, Winifred Relf, and Wil- liam Addington." "Sol Herman is still collecting medals for his private collection and his representatives to the various parts of the World are Ruth Karnes to the Fiji Islands, Louise Clift to China, Lewis Fetzer to Fort Worth, and Nell Fleming to Siberia." 77 "Well," I inquired, "What has become of Jesse Frick? "Oh," said the Professor, "he is an English teacher at Dallas Tech. and is a Wonder at punctuating sentences, While his secretary, Eleanor Fatheree, has great hopes of his becoming principal. "Then J. M. Lee," he continued, "is captain on the steamer plying between Dallas and Fort Worth, on that beautiful river, the Trinity." "By the Way," I asked, "Who is responsible for that improvement in the river?" "Oh, Thomas Mason, Harold McFarland, Lester McKeg, and Clarence Pittman were the brains of the organization that did this great Work. I23l 4B SENIOR PROPHECY-Continued "In the big building that they built on the bank of the river is Obie Norton's studio. He is now one of the greatest actors of the talkies, and he and his leading lady, De Etta Dishman, are to be married next week. The Reverend Sid Dunken will tie the knot. "His typist, Virginia Buckley, recently won the world's speed test with 200W words a minute and Rosalie Autry was third with 2981 words a minute. 'iRuth Davidson, Mable Pritchett, and Bobby Short recently won the bathing beauty contest held at White Rock. Pat Fletcher's hot dog stand there does a thriving business and is chieiiy habitated by Carl Davis, Lorine Bourland, William White, and John Surrat. Kirby Blakeney had an amphibian plane there until Nena Louise Day passed by. He ran into a tree, as he couldn't look two ways at once. His sawbones, Jake Gold- stein, wanted to take his appendix out until he found that it had been re- moved ten years ago. "Billy Allen," the Professor continued, "who recently ran 90 yards for a safety, has been chosen All-American tackle twice. His Wife, Nelle Price, is very proud of him. Their nearest neighbors, Mary Lou Thomp- son and Frances Melton, have gained much fame by their life-sized port- raits of white elephants." "Where is Bertha Russ ?" I inquired of him. "Bertha is now a famous hula dancer in Kenneth J ones' and Clyde Forshee's night club. Their chef is Joe Moifitt, who is a ha-sh expert. His chief assistants are T. L. Hall, Abelardo Rodriguez, and Benny Lawrence. Ralph Stovall, Rosa Schwarz, and Victor Correa give exhibition skating there each night, while Spresser Wynn conducts the orchestra for their performance. George Thornton plays the drums and hopes soon to be able to play the 'Anvil Chorus? He wants to become a blacksmith. The orches- tra also has: Jack Selby, flute player, Lucian Spann, cowbell player, Francis Wilson, Jews harp player, and J. D. Touchon, bird-imitating whistle player. Beatrice White sells cigarettes and candy there, and her best customer is Harold O'Neal. The Professor paused here, scratched his head, made more calcula- tions, and then proceeded again: "Helen L'Roy ran for Mayor and received one vote-she voted for herself. The ticket was also made up of Charles Marsh, Dog Catcher--he was chased by two dogs and withdrew, Curtis Andrews, Water Commis- sioner-the voters thought he was all wetg Willard Johnson, Finance Com- missioner-he made the mistake of asking for a loan of five dollarsf' As the last name was checked off, the Professor sighed, and stretching himself said, "Well, that's that." KIRBY BLAKENEY. it E241 JUNIOR CLASS We are the Juniors, neither so far down the line that We live in the future, nor so far up that We live in the past. We are the medium, the future commanders, pace makers, and path makers. You, Who are the Seniors, perhaps Wonder Who Will take your posi- tions in the far high places of the school, Who will rule Where yfou have ruled, and do as you have done. What, you say, have you as a basis upon which to base your claim and your prophecy? This and these: El Circulo Hispcmico: Vivieene Tallal, secretary, Jack Ball, treas- urer. Library Council: Catherine Wright. Military: Spresser Wynn, Henry Spencer, Edison Good, and John Heard. Ofrchestra: Vivieene Tallal, concert master, Spresser Wynn, student director. Both in All-Southwestern Orchestra. THE SENIOR SPEAKS Ah-I am tired of prating fools, Yellow men, trembling tools- I am tired-tired of mirthless giggles, Painted clowns and Worthless Wiggles- Give me a boy Who can laugh, And a girl Who can smile, A boy that can fight, And a girl Worth While- Give me a Junior! -Effie Cumings. l25l SOPHOMORE CLASS What could be sweeter than the Sophomore class? Honest and truly, they seem more important than the Seniors. Don't they chew their gum harder and "just a little longer" than anyone else? When one gets to be a Sophomore, he or she has reached the point 'where he is "supposed to fall in love"g or at least, he seems to think so. The Sophs are always doing something, too. They help to win tro- phies that make dear old Tech. proud of them. They iiock in the detention rooms, and buy the football tickets, too. It takes the Sophomores to keep the head of the school in the air and keep up the arguments among their classmates. They are all so proud when they have started their second year on that long and rugged road to High School Education. And one other word, "Don't forget they are also happy because they are no longer the minnows or the bait for the upper-classmen to pick on eternally? FRESHMAN CLASS Recipe for a Freshman class: Select only prime, innocent youngsters from each of a dozen or so schools, scrub well behind the ears, sprinkle liberally with bewilderment, turn loose in the high pressure melting pot of Dallas Tech. and await results. This recipe was used with the greatest success a few short months ago and produced that marvel of the school, the current Freshman class. Just how dull the life of the Sophomore would be without his unso- phisticated little playmates is a matter for the school psychologists to thresh out among themselves. Certain it is that the noble Junior would expire of pure ennui, and the mind of the Senior become even more atro- phied were it not for these interesting beings nearby. For weeks they supply entertainment for all the military officers, as any mortal near the windows at drill periods can testify. But for all the laughter and slight feeling of superiority that each class feels, there is a warm place in their hearts for this, the youngest class. They earnestly long to guide and help, smooth out the rough places, iix things so that the Freshmen can travel on a higher and better plane than they. Whatever the victories they have annexed to themselves, they are but the stepping stones for the Fish, the rungs in the ladder that leads to the top. And so, wolf cub, realizing this. they take off their hats to you -you, the leaders of the pack tomorrow. Prove yourselves! i26l SPECIAL CLASSES The Special Classes of Technical High School are made up of boys and girls who have dropped out of school on account of work or illness, or who have gone to school in small towns. We have grown from three classes to six this year and almost doubled in number since the first term. There are no grades, but the work is so divided that no pupil need be held back if he can do the advanced work. A number of our students from the first term are taking part high school work while doing special class work. The boys enter Military, pottery classes, and shop work. The girls enter classes in Foods and Clothing, pottery, gym, and music. T We are especially proud of this work because Mr. Cauthorn found on his trip East this year that no other city in the U. S. is doing this 'kind of work. AN ACROSTIC What has made my term's work worth while? S-tudy C-arefulness T-ruthfulness P-atience L-abor E-arnestness E-nthusiasm A-ttention C-oncentration C-onquering myself S-chool spirit H-igh ideals I-nitiative S-tickability A-pplication H-onesty L-ove T J I-ndustry The January graduates from the Special Classiwere: Jack Abramson, Joe Evans, Vernon Grant, Al Dobbs, Billie Mays, Alvin Fisher, O. B. Suggs, Boyd Goodman, Monroe Hinton, L. C. Hogue, Carl Abel, Thomas Wideman, John Pearson, George Rosser, William Bishop, Wilson Bond, Neil Flemister, Cecil Harris, David Hart, Edwin Kinser, J. C. Liansford, Leonard Lindsay, John McKinney, Frank Richardson, Sidney Moore, Rob- ert Morgan, Vernon Tipton, Marie Moore, Exa Andrews, Katherine Bris- tow, Eura Mae Dillard, Josephine Goodman, Edna Lee Ruse, Margaret Wright. ' BLOWING OUR HORN A careful check on the marks given by the high school department to these special pupils who were partially promoted shows that out of 52 marks only six were below passing the first semester. Josephine Goodman, a January graduate, made an average of 89.5 per cent. on her work in IB the first semester. A little over five per cent. of our boys and 20 per cent. of our girls are partially supporting themselves by part-time work. Earl Canada received 335.00 from the P.-T. A. for turning in the largest sum of money from the sale of picture show tickets. E271 SPECIAL CLASSES-Continued Jack Bryan was awarded the efficiency medal for Tech. High at the last government inspection. Company "C" has won parade line three times in succession. Many Special Class boys are in this group. Mose Thyfault is captain of the company. Edward Martin realizes quite a nice income from the sale of his com- mercial drawings. Walter Herrin has established a flourishing business in the way of a florist shop. Edward Vencil is the youngest aviator in Texas. George De Marcus studies four hours each afternoon in a Greek school. , Willard Weaver is ex-president of a harmonica club at Travis School. Charles Greeves is starting a pigeon business at Lisbon. He is spe- cializing on Homers. He won third prize on his pigeons at the last Fair. Joe Sanders was asked to play the harmoncia at the Adolphus on one of their dinner programs. Two ex-special boys have just completed a course in Commercial Art in New York and are now designing for two wholesale houses in Dallas. Another ex-special boy has been given a good position in the auditing department of the Western Union. Two girls in Mrs. Bryan's History class have organized a History Club which meets once a week. At each meeting we study the lives of two girls who became famous in American History, then have an interesting program. Louise Smithermon was elected president, Mattie Louise Green, vice-president, May Jeanette Woodward, secretary, Gladys Lobb, treas- urer, and,Fae Bell and Gladys Mabry are the program committee. Some of the pupils whose report cards carried home too many red grades at the end of the first six weeks have adopted this resolution: Early to bed and early to rise. Work like smoke and watch our grades. Rise, rise, rise. One of our mottoes: "The elevator to Success is not runningg take the stairway." E281 Organizations 1. R. O. T. C. 2. R. O. T. C. Stai 3.

Although in Major Carrico the cadets and the student body lost a friend and confidant as well as an admirable and well-beloved command- ant, they have found that loss somewhat repaired and that feeling of emp- tiness somewhat relieved by the presence of another well-known individ- ual, Sergeant Wm. F. Foster. Led capably and well by this gentleman, they believe themselves to be able to cope with any situation and feel ade- quately prepared to "carry on." A Few students ever realize the importance of the R. O. T. C. Corps to the school. By its excellency it brings honor and respect as surely as fame follows the winning teams home to roost. The R. O. T. C. is invaluable. That it trains boys to think we know well, but even more important-it gives them the ability to lead, the power to command. Sergeant William Foster, our present commandant, entered the serv- ice of the United States at 22 years of age. He has seen active service in four wars, including the Spanish-American, the Philippines, Border twice, and the World War, and was retired from active service May 22, 1921. For the last four years he has served in the R. O. T. C. 'of the Public Schools of the city of Dallas. Wounded twice, with a long, iine record behind him, Sergeant Foster is a valuable addition to our faculty group, and Dallas Tech. is glad to renew his acquaintance and hopes for a long, mutually pleasing friendship. l30l R.

O. T. C. Its head and guardian is the command- ant, Sergeant Foster. While a purely military club, it does not foster the "Junkers" spirit, but rather, makes for a better democracy by teaching the young men of the school to be at once courteous and helpful, obedient without subser- vient, resourceful but not rebellious, commanders by virtues of having been commanded. Constantly on the qui vice, this club strikes an inter- esting note in the school.

Baby Bone CMascotJ The Bonehead Club was organized February 28, 1929, by the home room group of 221 under the supervision of the teacher, Mrs. Storms. The club was organized to awaken interest in programs and home room activi- ties. Most boys do not enjoy the usual type of program. The Bonehead programs must be altogether comical to be accepted. To get into the club one must do some very, very comical act or stunt in front of the group. The first two groups to prepare stunts perfected the organization and made and adopted rules and by-laws. All others joining must be initiated. Every boy in the room is now a member. The spirit of the group has been commendable. Meetings are held each Thursday morning. Dues are collected at each meeting, and with them the club intends to have parties, wiener roasts, and other forms of entertainment. The club has adopted a password. The emblem of cross bones and Skull appears on the club rings. s The Bonehead Club has a separate project in the thrift enterprise. Woodrow Wilson is the chairman. Tuesday's programs are serious. The group try conscientiously to carry out the home room idea. The club idea is working beautifully. The boys enter into the spirit of the program in a fine Way.

Hi-Y was formed under the sponsorship of Mr. J. S. Henry. From a small beginning it has grown mighty. Now, everywhere in the school the blue tie with its crimson letters is the recognized symbol of sportsmanship and the insignia of clean manhood and Christian character. The activities of the club are many and varied. Besides the regular business meetings held every week there is the social side of the club. En- tertainments given in its name are renowned for their clean quality and, as a reporter would have it, "a good time is had by all." The value of the work itself, value, whether to the city, state, nation, or to the boy himself, can never be measured in mere words, and no artist was ever born who could paint the beauty of the close friendships between boys fostered by this club.

The young lady in question, Agatha Kent, is determined that she will not give up her farm and is further determined that she will, by hook or crook, rent rooms in the rambling old family house. A young man, Burton Forbes, blinded 'in eye and heart, comes to her house in response to an Had." Since he believes her to be her own Great Aunt and she must act as such, the situation becomes more complicated when Ridgely Warren, a gentleman who has eyesight and a taste for beauty, arrives on the scene. To Ridgely Warren she becomes Hepzibah Diggs. Meanwhile, throughout the play, the difficulties in the love affair between Aunt Zaida and Jim Doolittle and Deacon Wiggins comes to light. But the Deacon marries a Sara Jones and the affair between Zaida and Jim comes to a happy close. But Agatha in having tenderly guided Forbes around and in writing letters to Julia, has uncovered his love for her, and her cruel indifference to him. In a scathing letter in her own namegto the lady in question she makes statements that bring Julia down to the farm, where, becoming cruelly sarcastic, she enlightens Forbes as to who Agatha Kent is. Disil- lusioned, Forbes is determined to leave, but Ridgely Warren, by shocking him, restores his sight and sends Agatha to him. All ends as it should. Lucille Powell as Zaida Finch and Jack Selby as Jim Doolittle, plus John Baxter as Deacon Wiggins, are a crack comedy team. Agatha Kent is played well by Beatrice White, and Murray Milner as Burton Forbes is gay and pitiful as the part requires. Algie Wells and Alline Haswell are all they could be in their parts of Howard Kent and Phemie Tidd. And as Ridgely Warren, Mose Thyfault is happy, carefree, and much in love. As Mrs. Knox, Willie D. Bomar makes the part as aristocratic as that lady was in real life, and as Julia Studley, Isabelle Rochelle is sarcastic and beautiful. l42l "ENTER THE HERO" Anne Carey ...., .

Wanda Coleman This one-act play, which was entered in the One-Act Play Contest by Dallas Tech., is a comedy touched with melodrama. Anne Carey has believed and imagined herself in love for so long with Harold that she doesn't wish to be otherwise. Harold, returning home from South Amer- ica, finds the neighbors gossiping about his love affair with Anne, one he doesn't know anything about. Anne tries every psychological trick on the market to make Harold her husband. All in vain. At the curtain Anne still is writing pseudo love letters in hopes Harold will some day return. Wanda Coleman as the mother showed just the right amount of maternal concern, and Obie Norton as Harold was sufficiently bewildered about the letters he didn't write. As Anne, Merle Smith could qualify any day as a writer of romantic love tales, and as a young romantic slister, Kathleen Terry would be admirable. "THE REVOLTN "The Revolt", a one-act play by Ellis Parker Butler, was presented to the entire student body by the members of the Dallas Tech. Little Theater. This is a story of a girlwho goes to an Academy of Household Science to work out her tuition. She is very ignorant and doesn't understand the other girls at the academy. Grandma Gregg is at the head of this acad- emy 5 she is a very meek and kind old lady, who is striving to make good, sweet, home-loving women. She has many difficulties trying to make home-loving wives out of the girls. This play showed up some of the talent of the Little Theater.

To do this quietly and eiiciently requires some effort, much good will, and a great deal of earnestness. Because of this fact, only those students who have a beneficient influence on other students, who have character and ability, and who stand high in the estimation of the other students are chosen, and any member failing in one subject faces immedi- ate exclusion from the group. Two members act as presiding officers each period, thus leaving Mrs. Walraven free to attend to more important business. Since this work not only helps the school oiicials but also trains the members of the council in leadership, it is important in the school and marks an upward step. TECH. REVIEW The Tech. High Review was held in the school auditorium, Thursday evening, April 18. This was a four-act comedy. The funds went to the music department of the school. The program was as follows: 1.

TRACK There always comes a time in athletics to build up teams for the fol- lowing year. This is exactly what we are doing this year. With the mate- rial Coach C. A. Bryant has this year he should easily turn out a champion- ship team next year. In our first meet with Highland Park, Sunset, and Oak Cliff we came out second with 31 points. Henry Wilson was the individual star of the meet with 14 points. He came out second in the 100- and 200-yard dashes, first in broad jump, and second in the high jump. J. P. Lee won the high jump and was second in the discus. Kenneth Jones won second place in the low and high hurdles. Mose Thyfault won third place in the javelin throw. I The track team entered the S. M. U. relays and the Stock Show meet at Fort Worth. In these two meets track teams from all parts of the state were represented. Tech. showed up well with the other tams. The following men are on the track team: Henry Wilson, J. B. Lee, O. H. Britain, Mose Thyfault, Murray Milner, Thems Matthews, ,George Boedeker, Kenneth Jones, Philip Anton, Herm Thornhill, Abelardo Rodri- guez, G. W. Guthrie, and Robert Shepard. BASKET BALL With scant material and very few players with experience, Coach Davis and Assistant Coach Bryant undertook the stupendous task of shaping a well-balanced basket ball team to compete in the city basket ball race. Disregarding those obstacles, Coaches Davis and Bryant managed to form what was called "The Fighting Wolves." Due to the illness of two stellar players, J. B. Lee and J. W. Gann, Tech's. showing in the first game of the season was rather poor. As the season progressed she was improving with each game. Her third best game was with Woodrow Wilson High. Shel gave the Wildcats the scare of their lives, but due to the lack of experience lost the game by the narrow margin of one basket, 2 9to 27. Milner, center, and Lee and Wilson, guards, were the outstanding players of the game. Three out-of-city games were played, the first two with Terrell High. Tech. succeeded in winning the first two, but the third game, with Canton, she lost, 19 to 16. When the season ended Tech. was at the bottom in standing, but in spirit she was leading, because she had given all she had to the game and played fairly and squarely. . l45l ATHLETICS BASKET BALL TEAM TRACK TEAM TENNIS TEAM I 461 Features 1. Story, Poems, Jokes 2. Farewell 3. Autographs E471 CORA CORDELIA An independent young woman, warm hearted, worldly wise, master of herself and her mechanics-that was Cordelia. Great was she, great in mind, soul, and body. She was smart, honest, and sincere. She was a leader. It had ever been thus and so. But never had she had an intimate friend, and in life as in school, she was destined to stand somewhat apart, a pine upon a hill casting its beneficent shadow across the valley in the heat of day, object of love and admiration of which she was unaware. Some Grecian lad, touched by the beauty that springs from all things that are wise and good and human, gave her that other name that it pleased all her people to call her-Cora Cordelia, "Cordelia, the salt of the earth." Her story thus far was as short and brilliant as her rise was rapid, for Cora Cordelia was young. With all the school against her she had taken up shop, majored in math, English, and science. Many-sided, ver- satile, she had carried off the highest honors the school could bestow, and went forth, a lone wolf, into the world. She obtained a job in a tiny repair shop at a wage next to nothing. She practically slaved from dawn to darkg practice strengthened her knowledge of theory. Then there was a job on a larger plane and rapid promotion. When other girls, wearing fragile, beautiful dresses, went to dances, she wore overalls and grew confidential with carbon encrusted in pistons and coaxed what she called the "rheumatic pains" from ancient and well nigh obsolete cars. There was a miniature shop of her own that grew so robust it burst its quarters. There were larger establishments, and then this-this dream came true, this fairy place of shining glass and modern equipment on Motor Row. It now stood completed. It awaited its mistress. Q And, next door, in a quiet office fronting on the private street that ran between these two large automobile concerns, sat a quiet grey-eyed man. Humorously, he rubbed his chin and stared at the green door that guarded the entrance to the main shop across the way. He was small and neatly built, a little man Whose personality magnified him and made him stand out in bas-relief. He was a go-getter and head of the sales depart- ment of the -l Motor Company. But this morning he felt his sense of humor slowly deserting him. Lately-Well, he seemed to be losing his selling powers, his persuasive talent, or his personality, or something. Here now, he felt like a dish rag wrung until it was not only squeezed dry but also torn. He let his eyes fall to the papers on the desk, but the figures blurred crazily. He raised his eyes and a thrill shot through him like an electric current. In the green door, as in a frame, stood the mistress of the estab- lishment next door. With that indescribable feeling settling in his heart of hearts the little man gazed. Her proud head on its strong shoulders l43l filled his eyes with tears and the whole clean limberness of her filled him with rejoicing. He had seen her, he thought, somewhere before. And then he knew. He had seen her in Carthage when Dido was queen, in Rome when Zenobia stood captive before the throne of Aureleus. Oh, I tell you, Cupid got in some rapid work the brief second that the living picture stood in the dark green frame. She walked away, and to the little man it seemed that she had taken the sun with her, and the moon. He sat there dazed and certainly suder- ing until the floor man told him there was a wealthy customer to see him. He tried his best. His words were halting, but all went well until he tried most earnestly to tell the la-dy with the pretty blue eyes that the color of the automobile would set OH her lovely dark eyes and waving black hair. Now, the lady was a blonde. But she was wise and kind, and noting and recognizing his condition and realizing that it was spring, she bought the highly expensive car, to aid, she said, a worthy cause. For a long time, Cordelia never knew of her mute worshiper across the way. But you can hide nothing from a good mechanic, not even if you are a high-powered salesman. So it was through these wise things that Cordelia was casually informed of her admirer. After that, with uninten- tional cruelty she smiled every time she faced the green door-and his window. After many weeks exquisite bouquets made their appearance. They were unsigned. Cordelia said she wasn't sure where they came from, but she had an idea-. Well, even if she didn't, what of it? The mechanics did, and after a long period of an avenue well paved with the friendly overtures of flowers, her mechanics managed to abduct that gentleman, bring him over and introduce his shy majesty, and for their pa-ins were called devils and angels in the same breath by the gentleman concerned. But they understood, and with the perversity that belongs only to women -and mechanics-left him to the tender mercies and majestic beauty of Cordelia. Never let any one tell you that mechanics are not matchmakers. After that it was fairly easy to coax him over and casually abandon him in her vicinity. They were well rewarded, for thereafter Cupid counted them in as his aides, as they were indeed. Interested "grease hounds" are fine diplomats and gallant gentlemen. Later on, say around June time, when the moon, a luminous crescent of beauty, calls all her devotees outdoors and the south wind weaves his witchery in the swaying trees, the benevolent "knights of the grease" sat upon the roof and meditated. "What shall we give her ?" "Why," said the lad from Greece, "give her a set of flawless crystal, as flawless as she, our Cordelia, 'the salt of the earthf " -EFFIE CUMINGS. I 49 l School Sick. Four happy years I've spent with thee, Dear fellow students true, But now there comes the parting day And I am feeling blue. Las night I was a care-free boy My play was life, my life was play, No future called, from day to day I laughed and romped and lived-a day. But now another day I see, A day to do with as I will, Shall it be fraught with good or ill? What message does that day bring me. Now life calls me to a quest, To love, to laugh, to work, to play, To serve, to sacrifice, to pray, He calls and he shall find me there. To think of parting makes my heart sad, After the many happy times I had, With my dear friends who attended Tech. I cannot help it, but it makes me sad. "But why should I feel blue?" say I. "For really we're not parted yet, This good old class of '29 Will always stick as one, you bet." "Cheer up," say I. "Forget the blues, We part for just a while, For when we go on the field of life, 'Twas but the second mile." Many good souls have helped us through In all the battles we've fought and won. We certainly want to thank our Profs. For everything that they have done. -Ramon Franco. lei Tech. High. As on life's way we go, on our journey here below, We shall praise thee, our dear Tech.

We have all passed your tests, and learn- ed your virtues best, With our hearts joyous and gay, And with dreams of days of yore, press- ing onward to the fare, As we go on life's pathway. Now as Father Time departs, giving mankind all his arts, What is greater for us to do Than to love and cherish thee, making others by virtues see Our own Tech. High we are for you. -Allena Barrett.

The equations she hath given me I now must make with men, And play the game of life and death Gallantly within my ken. -Eyfie Cumings. LOT Life.

For his kindliness and patience with all of us, words would be empty and powerless to paint our gratitude. To Miss Dora Flack, the Sponsor of this volume, goes the sincere thanks of all the Seniors. Without her the staff would have drowned in a sea of inefficiency, and this editor would have died a premature and unnat- ural death. To Miss McEvoy we extend hearty good will and good wishes, and then we shall fall silent, for we realize that no number of profuse thanks and mere words can adequately express our gratitude for her efforts in our bhalf. To Mr. Kadel we express our thanks for the art scheme, to Mr. Good- rich for the direction of the printing, and to Miss Jones for the successful direction of the Senior play.
