Although some of you may have had identical programs while here, it was merely a coincidence, as we have tried to arrange your work so that each one was given those studies best fitted to your needs. The possibility of your association with members of the faculty, which has been reduced from 120 teachers to 80 teachers,has been greatly re- stricted. Although we cannot fully compensate for this loss, we have given you a special consultation period each day, so that any of you could have become better acquainted with any of your teachers. We hope that when you go out into the world you will continue to develop as individuals and not as members of a group. The enjoyable daily contacts here with your fellow students, representing about thirty different nationalities, must have developed in you a spirit of tolerance. You have worked amicably together here during the last three years, I hope that you maintain the same friendly relations with your fellows during the rest of your lives. Each of you has equal opportunity to de- velop to the limit of your ability. The future of this country depends upon the ability, the industry, the loyalty, and the cooperation of its citizens. We look to your generation to supply this need. Sincerely yours, J. E. Tanis. . 49147 8 In a contest neither the participants nor the spectators are satis- fied With a forfeit. The spirit of DOING the right thing is uppermost in the minds of playersg the desire to SEE the right thing DONE oc- cupies the minds of the onlookers. To the onlooking world Detroit symbolizes the will to do and to do fairly. But by Detroit one does not understand merely a geograph- ical subdivision, -rather he thinks of the people therein. The con- clusion for each of us is plain: if Detroit is to be progressively dynamic, the doer must not only have the will to do, but must also will to do in fairness to his fellow beings. For we can ALL be happy life-actors only if EACH has the urge to be individually helpful. A happy community results solely from the happiness of all the individuals, for all the individuals, by all the individuals. Your part in this plan is self-evident: do not fear to follow it, but follow it in all its three phases. A. L. McGrath. C1.L.m54..o1fi. Mr. McGrath.

TO THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1939: THE Viking may fairlybe regarded as a demonstration of what Northern students are capable of doing. It must not be understood that this is merely a literary project. Advertising, for ex- ample, presents one of the major problems. The Skill of the mechanical drawing group is required in laying out the pages. Art students contribute their share. Much planning has to be done along other lines which call for various kinds of abilities. For these reasons, then, the selection of people to carry on this work must be regarded as no empty honor. Too much credit can not be given the members of the staff for the time and en- ergy which they contributed to the task. F. H. WHITMER, Chairman. 16 JUNE g VIKING g 1939 CLASS COMMITTEES PLAY COMMITTEE Richard Gauthier, Chairman Shirley Hermann Margie Lyman Arthur Urbin Hazel Milliken' Seymour Rapp Gwendolyn Harkless Irving Epstein SOCIAL COMMITTEE Grace McKiddie, Chairman Virginia Moore Elayne Whittington Joe Fee Douglas McLaughlin Fairy Beaver Norman Freid Lillian Gurian MEMORIAL COMMITTEE Bill Menzel, Chairman Martin Winokur Leah Levitt Donald Morton Alba Paparelli Geraldine Partin Herman Halprin Betty Bergmann FINANCE COMMITTEE Harold Gales, Chairman Clinton Canady Kathryn Beattie Sidney Resnick Julius Sigman Charles Kennedy Lois Waldron Anna Petranovich CAP AND GOWN COMMITTEE Nina Schoichit, Chairman Fanny Neuman William McLaren America Diaz Jacob Silverman Knox McCardell Marie Johnson Nellie Seligson 17 LEONARD ROBBINS President JACK PEARLMAN Vice-President we r, .g,. l VIRGINIA BEALE Secretary ROBERT SILVER Treasurer The executive positions is a natural one for Leonard Robbins, amiable and popular president of our graduating class. His sparkling personality, scholastic attainments, and oratorical ability have been responsible for his acquiring four different presidential offices, presiding over clubs, the house, and our class. 5 A keen sense of humor and ready intelligence mark Jack's pleasing personality. As president of the Physics Club, he has shown his capability as an officer he now fulfills as Vice-President, for throughout his school career, Jack has been a bulwark of efficiency and dependability. Exercising her proved ability as Secretary, vivacious Vir- ginia has played an important part in school affairs. Athleti- cally inclined, she plays basketball and field hockey with the boundless energy that has made her so Well liked. With an ever-ready smie, Virginia has brightened every task she has so capably undertaken. In his usual Workman-like fasion, Bob has executed his duties as Treasurer with results above reproach. Dependable, ever-conscious of the Work before him, he has been a model of scholastic diligence. Characterized by a pleasant person- ality, Bob's geniality is just one of the many splendid tributes of his character. 18 JUNE g VIKING g 1939 PRESlDENT'S MESSAGE TO-DAY may mean farewell to all that has been common ground for us, but it is ground or which we may take firm footing. The bell ending our final high school class has rung finding us ready for our next step forward in life. Our graduation will soon become a distant memory, but from the education behind it we are inseparable. Coming into high school as "freshies," untrai ned, with minds yet unbroadened, we have found Northern a greatly beneficial means of physical and intellectual growth, a means that has trained us up to the present time for an efficacious career. As broadened men and women now, we look forward to the life ahead of us, keen and eagerg for we feel secure that this wealth of educational background we now command will greatly enhance our opportunities for future success. However,we must be careful not to regard this training as a compact, completed unit of education, but rather use it as a cultural foundation upon which to build the skills that we will find necessary for our vocational development and general enrichment of living. At the same time, we must remember that only by applying as great effort to the work of the future as we have to that of the past can we hope for a similar amount of success. Before ever arriving at the supreme moment of graduation, we have realized that any achievement we may gain in the future is partly the result of the exacting influence of those very good friends we have made here, our teachers. The generous assistance rendered us by these experienced guides has left its indelible stamp upon all of us. Let us not forget the bene- fits of their training and experience. Indeed, many of our habits and even our lines of think- ing have been formed during our stay here in Northern. Let us retain those that are desir- able, and dispose of those that seem detrimental, for our success and happiness will be largely determined by this personality development. Some of our paths will lead us to further education and others into equally-important in- dustrial fields. The demand for capable men and women in industry to-day is just as great as the cry for college-trained people. Let ambition be our guide in this world of opportunity, and our intent a resolve to show the lasting value of our parents, our friends, and our school. l9 0 W JOE ARDAGNA 0 Italian Club Corridor Squad House Handball MILDRED BAIRD Q Viking Typist House Basketball Northern Girls Detroit Business Institute KORA BA SMAJ IAN CARL ALTMAN CORALIE ANDERSON ANNE AUKSKALNIS HUGH BAKER 0 Bowling Club VIRGINIA KATHLEEN BEALE 0 12A Class Secretary House President Student Council Varsity Basketball '- is Q llllrl eo 191' MARY L.

BETTY BERGMANN Treasurer MARY GAMBLE HOUSE COME along and step right in line with the girls from 207. We have kept in step with the march of youth, While an- other group of enlightened 12A's has passed through the portals of our beloved house. Leading the industrious and popular girls this year was our scholarly and athletic president, Virginia Beale. The position of vice-president was aptly filled by LillianAGurian. Martha Jane Bramley took care of the secretarial duties of the house, While Betty Bergmann proved to be a capable treasurer. We feel We have reached most of the goals we set for ourselves at the beginning of our varied high school careers. Our girls proved outstanding in many of the school activities. Some of them received major roles in the senior play. Others gained recognition in the field of sports and in senior activ- ities. This year a prominent, well-informed member of the Varsity Debate Squad was Mariam Chylinski. Our house team has been one of the most outstanding through the years since our school became renowned in debating. We have held the cup this year for the champion team. If the team, Ann Barris and Sylvia Cohen, Wins it again, it will take a permanent posi- tion amongthe trophies of 207. Once again We held the scholarship shield which is given each semester to the house with the highest scholarship rat- ing. Remembering the kind and steady guidance of our genial house principal, Mrs. Jessie Ward, we are better fitted to go out into a new world Without fear of facing its obstacles and opportunities. The deep understanding method which she used in dealing with the problems and joys of her girls will long remain with the passing seniors. 40 'igi' ALLHAH STUDENTS 12-B'S ACTIVITIES MR. BROWN LEONARD ROBBINS President MARTIN WINOKUR Vioe-President PHILIP STERNFELD Secretary LOUIS RICHWERGER Treasurer THOMAS EDISON HOUSE THE House of Thomas Edison concluded another traditional- ly successful semester this term under the tactful guid- ance of Mr. Brown and the House Council. The house offic- ers, selected by the Council, as follows: Leonard Robbins, president, Martin Winokur, vice-president, Philip Sternfeld, secretary, and Louis Richwerger, treasurer. The second hand book store was again opened and under the leadership of Harry Vinacow was run very efficiently. The House Council also has taken steps to beautify our house. The boards are being classified, and a constitution, under which 208 will be governed, is being formed. House 208 dominated the senior class this semester by taking three of the four senior offices: Leonard Robbins was elected president, while Jack Pearlman was the students' choice for vice-president, and Bob Silver became treasurer. Major roles in the 12A play went to John Rieger, Leon- ard Robbins, and Seymour Rappg while Warren Wallace, Ar- thur Urbin, Leonard Penslar, Don Taylor, and Sid Resnick were cast in minor parts. Active members on the Light staff this semester were John Rieger, editor-in-chief for the second successive termg Warren Wallace, literary editor, Louis Richwerger and Charles Rhead, sports editorsg and John Waller, news edi- tor. Other members of the staff were Don Taylor and Isa- dore Rosen. Contributors to the Viking were Louis Richwerger, Leon- ard Robbins, and Dale Woolfenden. In athletics, Ed Solomon won recognition by taking two places in the city track meet. A system, in which a monitor is elected for each hour to take care of the grade room, has been adopted by the house this year. House 208 extends its wishes for the greatest happiness and success to the graduates. is 42 ALL "A" STUDENTS 12-B'S ACTIVITIES : 5, QQQ if .,.. . .. . ,... ........, ,.,, ,..,, Q . . .. ..W.....,g..

Fave, the John Marshall House has, this semester, kept up its fighting spirit and had advanced in scholarship and athletics. The new boys that entered House 224 from House 308 last semester, due to the reorganization of houses, have be- cme a very definite and important part of House 224. They have all shown themselves to be fine students, and many of them have shown great athletic prowess. Also, our 10B class promises to be one of the finest in a long time. House 224 has long been known for its participation in school activities. On the basketball court, House 224 has been well represented by Eli Kaplanski, the varsity captain, Tom Hubbard, and Herman Jaffee. The swimming team was greatly aided by the proficient services of Co-captain Clovis McDonald, Jerome Katz, Dick Martin, Charles Hopkins, Fred Noffert, and Herman Oleshansky. Alex Moore and Archie McLelland will be House 224's contribution to the golf team, and Charles Kennedy will lend his services to the tennis team. House 224 will be well represented in baseball also, with Tom Hubbard, star pitcher, and many others. Harold Isaacson, Gerard Nefcy, and Martin Loey are lending their respective talents to the Viking staff. The House Council has as its members Harold Isaacson, Presidentg Victor LaBolle, Vice- Presidentg George McMartin, Secretary, and Marien Meritt, Treasurer. On the 12A committees, House 224 has Bill Menzel, Chairman, and Donald Morton, Memorial Committee, Irving Epstein, Play Committee, and Knox McCardell and William McLaren, Cap and Gown Committee. Wesley Insko and Clovis McDonald are cast in the senior play. May this house continue to be a prominent factor in Northern activities, athletics, and scholarship. 46 ALL "A" STUDENTS 12-B'S ACTIVITIES MQW-liebe! MISS SUTHERLAND BETTE WARHOL President NINA SCHOICHET Vice-President NETTIE SELIGSON Secretary MURIEL SWETKA Treasurer CLARA BARTON HOUSE "AS long as the rivers flow into the sea, as long as the shad- ows encompass the rounded masses of the mountains, as long as the sky feeds the stars, always your name, honor, and praises will remain with me, whatsoever lands may call me." We of 307 quote these famous lines from Virgil's Aeneid to Northern. House 307 had its decorations done this semester by Frances Patterson, Nettie Seligson, Gertrude Strauss, Elaine Whittington, Helen Yoscovitz, and Mary Zeigler. It is the only study hall in Northern to have a House Congress, the idea of Miss Sutherland, our ,skillful and helpful principal. Among the duties of the congress are the establishing of rules for 307 and deciding the fates of its law offenders. Thus, 307 was put on a self-ruling basis, for it also had its House Council consisting of senior officers, officers for next term, and class representatives. The officers for next term are: Veronica Slick, president, Irene Rivais, vice-president, Flor- ence Stein, secretary, and Margaret Skinner, treasurer, and the class representatives are Jean Sherman, 11Ag Carol Zack, 11Bg Virginia Sulatycki, 10Ag and June White, 10B. This capable staff conducted a house party, brought 307's twenty- year-old scrapbook up to date, and made a complete collection of college and business school catalogues for the house mem- bers. Besides house activities, members of 307 took part in sports. The most outstanding basketball players were Doro- thy Thompson, Geraldine Spare, and Isabelle Smith. Among the mermaids could be found Muriel Swetka, Victoria Sula- tycki, and Mary Beth Starrett. In debating, Nettie Seligson and Shirley Sleeper repre- sented 307 excellently. In 12A activities - Viking staff, graduation play, and committees - graduate members brought honor to our study hall. ' Thus, Miss Sutherland had as much cause to be proud of her pupils, as her pupils had to be proud of her. I 48 ALL QA" STUDENTS I2-B'S ACTIVITIES , sy. vf , ff . it MR. BLANCHARD get if N ORMAN BREYER. President HAROLD GALES Vice-President "ln-if K Q1 . WILLIAM CANUP Secretary EUGENE FISHER 'Treasurer BENJAMIN FRANKLIN HOUSE TO the citizens, scholars, and athletes of House 308 these words extend a challenge: "Live, and love life, grow in honest strength, serve with charity for all." From this shrine Franklinites gain inspiration for the achievements with which they enrich the school, and around this motto they, of diversi- fied races and creeds, rally in common unity. This slogan represents the spirit by which Mr. C. H. Blanchard, counselor, stimulates interest in school and study hall advancement. Northern has been aroused by the liveliness and aggres- sive spirit of Franklinites who have been active in baseball, football, and tennis, while the house trophies of track, swim- ming, and basketball testify to further athletic achievement. As the culmination of a broad and rapid growth, an aver- age of 79.99 per cent won the boys' scholarship award and seriously threatened the school trophy. To the large number of honor students goes the credit for this gratifying success. In every field of activity, Northern enjoys House 308's co-operation. The spirit of organization and improvement characteristic of Benjamin Franklin asserts itself in the Light, Viking, 12A Play, R. O. T.

Lenore Gentry JUNE g r VIKING 3 1939 SENIOR PLAY "LIGHTNIN," by Winchell Smith and Frank Bacon was the name of the play chosen by our competent director, Charles S. Lewis. The setting was the kind that suggested many enjoyable moments, it being Hotel Calivada, situated on the state line between Nevada and California. The play disclosed how John Mar- vin, a clever young lawyer, saved the Joneses from having their hotel stolen. Clovis McDonald and John Rieger shared the hero part of John Marvin, with Betty Meiser and Patricia Gratton as the young and attractive Millie Buckley. Mr. and Mrs. Jones, play- ed respectively by Wesley Insko and Edsel Forsythe with Frances Cody and Sally Frick held equally enjoyed character parts. Millie and John did not carry on the only love affair, as the judge, Leonard Robbins and Richard Gauthier, ended up by marrying Margaret Davis, a danc- er, well portrayed by Virginia Moore and Shirley Hermann. The ingenious divorcees, Betty Jean Warhol, Betty Needham, Sarah Finkelstein, Gertrude Hoberman, Lois Waldron, Ilma Findlater, Dorothy Thompson, Margaret Perkins, Louise Shank, and Marjorie Lyman, added feminine charm and life to the proceedings. n Mrs. Harper, Ruth Opp and Hazel Milliken, and her husband, Mr. Harper, Don Taylor and Douglas McLaughlan, are always coming and going, with Freda, Lenora Gentry, Mrs. Harper's maid keeping close on her heels. The part of secretary of the court was taken by Dorothy Beal and Fairy Beaver. Fred DeNike and Hilliam Canup played the villain part of Raymond Thomas, a dishonest lawyer. Zeb Crothers, a friend of Lightnin', Warren Wallace and Arthur Urbin, proved an amusing character. If you can, imagine Sam Gluck and Robert Silver as a hard-working liveryman, Lawrence Rosenthal, as the hotel clerk, and Irving Stein- man and Norman Levy as ace-number-one reporters. The remaining cast, Seymour Rapp and Irving Epstein as Everett Hammond, Leonard Pensler and Charles Kennedy as Nevin Blodgettg Henry Dahl and Alex Avrin as Oscar Nelson, Joe Fee and Harold Gales as Fred Peters, and Sidney Resnick and Morris Galfond as Walter Lennon were of importance for they gave the leading characters excellent support. The audience which assembled on the nights of May 12th and 19th to witness the dra- matic ability of their fellow students showed the cast by their applause that the play was an all-around success. 59 "LIGHT" STAFF THE Northern Light has been subjected to new and revolutionary changes under the editorship of John Rieger III and the faculty supervision of Mr. H. C. Kolbe. The new streamlined typography and features, such as the crossword puddle and the comic serial, have modernized and increased the reader appeal of the publication. Irene Rivais and John Waller, News Editors, attained remarkable news coverage, to make Light readers the best informed students of Northern. Literary Editor, Warren Wallace, worked assiduously on new and interesting typography and features for the literary page. The Sports Editors, Louis Richwerger, Charles Rhead, and Helen Anderson, wrote up schol sports with well- directed punch. Art Editors LeRoy Brown, Alex Moore, and Leonard Alkon clutched knives and pens to hack out varied and attractive linoleum cuts and drawings for most occasions.

Under the able coaching of Mr. Tilchin this team became runner-up for th city championship with a record of Winning all of their debates but one. Northern debating activities are a branch of the MichiganForensic Society in Ann Arbor under the direction of the University of Michigan which chooses the questions for debate. The debaters are idle this semester because there is no debating in the Forensic Society during the spring term. The team is still lamenting the graduation of Mary Jenkins and will sustain another loss this semester in the fozin of Leah Levitt, who will be graduated in June. Next Septem- ber the veterans will be Isadore Shulman, Miriam Chylinski, and Joe Lissan. Mr. Tilchin is also to b praised for taking over the position of coach when Mr. Lewis left and guiding his first team to second place in debating in the City of Detroit. Front Row-L. Levitt H.

To make all this Wealth of books and periodicals accessible to the readers is the purpose of our Library Staff. This staff which consists of approximately twenty members is trained under the guidance of Miss Lyon. Systematic arrangement, marking, and cir- culation of books are all included within the scope of its work. Probably many do not realize that this work going on in the pleasant surroundings of our library with its attractive exhibits, artistic paintings, and refreshing plants has much to do with the actual training of students contemplating librarianship as their vocation. The possibility of being helpful to others when Working for one's own improvement in a chosen field is the great privilege of our Library Staff. One may readily see that the circulation of eleven hundred books and the attendance of thirty-three hundred students at an average a week is the fine result of this activity. WWW R. Hart, E.

To climax the association's calendar of events, there will be the semi-annual dance held in honor of the newly-acquired alumni of Northern High School. In obtaining the newly graduated students as members of the alumni association, there will be that continuance of goodfellowship that is imperatively vital in rela- tionships as existing outside the walls of Northern High School. They will come to realize that the purpose of this group is to preserve that spirit of life acquired in three years of school activities and to con-tinue to hold an interest in the Welfare of the school. In behalf of the Northern High School Alumni Association, the officers wish to extend their sincerest congratulations to the members of the Class of June, 1939, in the gaining of their diplomas as symbolic of their newly acquired status as men and women of Detroit. 67 JUNE 3 R. o.

This legend inscribed on the seal of Detroit was writ- ten when the city lay in ashes, destroyed by the fire in 1805. It now signifies a hope fulfilled: a promise kept. This fire brought destruction of property, homes, labors, and hopes, but it also cleared the way for a better planned city and laid a foundation for the suburbs "even as far north as Grand Boulevard." In 1805 Detroit was a pallisaded, overflowing community. The town Cincorporated in 18021 consisted of wooden houses crowded together and enveloped by a cramped cluster of dwellings clinging tenaciously to the shadow of its protecting picket walls. The town's tinder box propens- ities were recognized and steps taken for fire prevention. In 1798 the village acquired its first fire engine. This affair pulled vigorously to the scene of a fire and hastily attached to the nearest cistern would avenge its broken solitude by laming the backs of the town's huskies with treacher- ous hand pumps. Each householder was required to maintain a full barrel oi water, and to have two three-gallon buckets, and a chimney reaching ladder. Every male resident was drafted into the community fire department and was liable to fines, should he shirk his duty. A watch- man situated inthe belfrey of Dr. Duffield's Church, which stood on the present site of the J. L. Hudson Company, continually conned the city for wisps of smokey should he espy one, he would ring the church bell, pealing forth the harem-scarem fire brigade. Dr. Duffield's tall steeple seems to have menaced the public well as much as the fires, for its swaying with the breeze thwarted the best of chain anchors. Regardless of all this, the day of June 11, smote Detroit, and with its falling, flames rose above the city. John Harvey, Detroit's "Mrs. O'Leary's cow," having finished his day's baking, set out for May's Creek to replenish his supply of flour. He hitched up Bess, and while driving from the barn he emptied his pipe, striking it against his wagon. The brisk wind blew a spark to the haystack and the haystack, the barn, and the whole town Went up into some passing cloud. The citizens put up a good fight, but it wasn't the day for their little fire engine. After a fire-break failed, everyone went for a swim, thoughtfully taking any cherished' household goods with him. After the con- flagration had eaten itself out of life, the hungry former Detroiters poked about the ashes for some semblance of food, when to the surprise and gratification of all, Jacques A. Girardin, another baker, found in his ovens several loaves of well-baked bread Thus the cursing of the baker's trade was somewhat abated by the star-roofed citizenry. A few days later when Michigan's first governor, Governor Hull, arrived with other officials, including Judge Woodward, the sight of a few blackened chimneys and an unimportant warehouse saddened him. However, aided by the farmers along the river, the homeless Detroiters rebuilt their city, using Judge Woodward's plan, which was a modification of the planning of Washington. Instead of having a single point of convergence of the main thoroughfares, Judge Woodward's plan had a series of such centers, and the number of the same could be augmented as the city grew. Each center was to be used for a civic purpose. In 1818, the Judge being absent, this plan was alt- tred, which accounts for Grand Circus Park being a half-circle, and Woodward Avenue and the streets north of Adams Avenue being so narrow. -Arthur Urbin. 72 JUNE g VIKING g 1939 BELLE ISLE - ISLAND OF ROMANCE AT night the sight of the bridge connecting the mainland with Detroit's Isle of Romance, Belle Isle, is spectacular. Its long rounded arches, outlined by twin rows of lights, are reflected in the black water below like many large distorted moons. The water seems a continued sky, only to be distinguished from the real one by the occasional ripple on the surface. The silence is not depress- ing, but enveloping and soothing. Dimly outlined by twinkling lights, not far from the foot of the bridge, looms a dark structure, the shelter of the canoes. Winding through the center of the island are dozens of tiny rivulets, dotted here and there with miniature tree- shaded spots. One purpose of these streams is for canoeing, and the islands reward those who pause with the soothing effect of the rhythmic sound of the paddles as they dip in and out of the water. For recreation during the day, sports were not forgotten when entertainment was planned for the island. A common sight is the stylishly dressed couple swinging their tennis racquets as they come on the court and get ready for action. Behind the tennis courts, Winding trails shaded by tall trees, are the bridle paths where the faint clop-clop or the horses echoes through the woods. Not far off are the many swings and slides, which are often used by others besides the very young. The non-athletic type will surely visit the flower house. There the exotic perfumes of the various flowers carries one off into strange and mystic moods. If one is in favor of active, rather than still, life, the wonders of the animal and fish kingdoms may be viewed in the Zoo and Aquar- ium. The animals and fish are placed as nearly as possible in their natural surroundings, and does not take much imagination on one's part to believe that he is in the jungle or on the ocean floor. As twilight draws near, a crowd begins to gather around the large familiar Shell. In a few minutes a hush falls over the audience as the inspiring strains of symphonic music float out on the air. The audience relaxes from the day's cares and worries and loses itself completely in the mus- ic's enchantment. Leaving the Island, by way of the winding roads through the dense wood, cool refreshing breezes bid us good-by. Again we come to the lighted bridge which will lead us away from our Island of Romance. 1Anne Stockser' 73 JUNE 2 VIKING 2 1939 DETROIT - AT THE TURN OF THE CENTURY DETROIT of the so-called "Gay Nineties" was truly an outstanding city with towering trees, spreading shrubbery, and colorful flowers. Avenues, such as Cass and East Jefferson, with their stately mansions and rambling, green lawns, added to the charm and distinction. When a resident, visiting another town announced that he was from Detroit, immediately someone would exclaim, "Oh, that beautiful city!" Above all, Detroit was quiet and peaceful. The soft, muffled clop-clop of horses hoofs, the grinding of carriage wheels on the cobblestones, and the occasional putt-puff-sputter of a passing new-fangled, horseless carriage were heard. None of the present day noises of automobiles, factories, and street cars were in existence then. Bicycles were the fad, and both rich and poor gaily rode through the streets. A large sized wheel could be purchased for as low as 540, but the ambition of every young man was to own one of the new "Victors" at 8100. The greatest pleasure of the younger set was derived form organiz- ing a "bike party." Groups of young ladies and gentlemen rode to Belle Isle or to the suburbs of the city for picnic lunches, which the fair damsels had prepared for the party. Beautiful Grand Boulevard was then considered the best possible place for a gay, young blade "to take his gal a-ridin'." Near the close of the nineteenth century, the people of Detroit were awaiting the new century with eager anticipation. On January 1, 1900, Mayor Maybury and other city officials placed writ- ten statements in a strong box which was in the city archives. The contents of the box are to be revealed on January 1, 2000, and if we live, we shall learn what the statements are. -Harold Gales. 74 JUNE 2 VIKING 2 1939 THE LEGEND OF THE FOUNDING OF DETROIT ITHIN the grand old castle of St. Louis, Quebec, on the evening of March 10, 1701, a banquet W was taking place. Around the table, displaying costly silver and glass, sat a group of French officers. Among them was the young Monsieur La Mothe Cadillac, who had just returned from France, bringing with him the grant for a tract Of land fifteen acres square, wherever on "le De- troit" he should see fit to locate a colony and build a fort. Cadillac entered service at sixteen and became a lieutenant at twenty-one. He was stationed at Quebec and later he was in command of Mackinac for five years. Several times, when passing thorugh "The Strait" QDetroit Riverl, he had noticed the advantages it possessed. During the dinner party, a servant announced than an old woman, outside, desired to tell their fortunes. She was tall and dressed strangely. On her shoulder was draped a black cat. When she approached Cadillac, he announced that he desired her to tell him about the future in- stead of the past. Gazing at his hand, she said, "Monsieur, yours is a strange destiny. You will soon undertake a dangerous journey, and you will found a great city, which some day will have more inhabitants than New France now has." She paused, and Cadillac, interested, told her to go on. "Monsieur, I wish you had not commended me to go on, for dark clouds are risingq The policy you intend pursuing in selling liquor to the savages, contrary to the advice of the Jesuits, will cause you much trouble and eventually ruin you. In the coming years the Indians will be treach- erous, and the English will struggle for the possession of your city." Cadillac left Quebec with his expedition. On June 20 they reached St. Claire River, and on July 24, 1701, the expedition rounded Belle Isle, and soon landed at the foot of what is now Gris- wold Street. The Indians rushed down to Welcome themg soon a new fort was erected, and a store house built. The new structure was christened Fort Ponchartrain. Thus the great city of Detroit was founded. -Joan Donaldson, DETROIT . By the inland sea a giant city stands, Where Vulcan's forge gives roaring birth- From sand and rocks, and Wood and earth- To chariots for the world to ride. Chariots whose driver now commands Half a hundred reckless steeds, The awful strength of cosmic breeds- For here the modern wizards bide. In that energetic smoky pall Whose myriad descending fingers reach Their tips unto a thousand chimneys -- each A pillar to the sky upon whose tall, Straight form the hands of beauty fall- A quiet lies. This shape might teach To man some doctrines nver bound by speech Or other mortal means. Life is not all ' A search for gaily superficial things. The wraith of cities broods with power which brings Thoughts of dark human force. Pause Upon the point, whoever mourns decrease Of cheer: As consolation, take the cause, The smoke, symbolic in a sullen peace. -Warren Wallace. 75' JUNE 2 VIKING 2 1939 VIGNETTES DETROIT is a city of beauty, grime, blatant automobile horns, sublime man-made effigies, disil- lusionment, bathos, and pathos. It is a great metropolis where men satisfy their selfish yearn- ings, inveigle the gullible, murder and rob the Weak and destitute. It is also the city of philanthropists, the men who make life worth living. They tread among the unfortunate in benevolent anxiety, ministering to their wants and dire needs. Magnificent and colossal buildings dot the horizon, the symbol of progress and plenty. In the very shadow of these monstrous works, stands the dilapidated, vermin-infested, sight-repellant wrecks which are the homes of fellow men. Here thousands of under-nourished, under-vitalized Americans live, eat, sleep, and seek diversion, in this breeding place of outcasts, derelicts, crim- inals, and struggling individuals. Q Luckily enough, we may strike a happy medium between these two extremes - the happy, law-abiding citizen, who leads an average life in an economical semi-modern, or shall we say, ultra- modern home. Here in this favorable atmosphere, young Detroiters who are to be the great of tomorrow live and thrive, contented and usually oblivious to the suffering and meagerness of life about them. This man of average means and intellect strives to better his city, his state, his country, and his home. Detroit is the sanctuary for the opulent industrial magnate, who established the motor car, the force which has elevated this city to fame and renown as one of the greatest communities the world has ever known. These great factories are the driving force behind the existence of literally thous- ands of inhabitants, who toil in their clamoring, strident, enveloping fastness in order that they may extract a living from the insatiable hunger for luxuries. The sordid, the glorifying, the good, and the bad make Detroit a great city. These elements are predominant in any locality where men congregate and exist for the supposed betterment of all. They are inevitable in varying degrees in any community, but there must be a balance. These are the characteristics which make our lives varied and interesting. This is the balance which endears our city to its inhabitants, who seek to better the morals, fortitude, and ideals of the rising gen- eration through the more thorough education of young men and women. -Irene Rivas. 76 JUNE 2 VIKING Q 1939 BELLE ISLE BELLE Isle, an island in the Detroit River, is Detroit's most beautiful park. Before the coming of the white man, the Indians called it Swan Island because here was the favorite resting place for migrating swans. This is one of few islands that can boast of a legend, one that was responsible for its second name, Rattlesnake Island. Long ago, in 1620, a stone image stood on the site of old Detroit near the bank of the river which the Indians worshipped as a Great Manitou. In shape the figure resembled a man and was decorated with native paints to make the likeness more striking. The superstitious Indians believed the image to possess great power - the voice of Manitou was heard when the storms came. the Winds blew when it was angry. Later the missionaries broke the idol into a thousand pieces, threw them into the river, and planted a cross in its place. The legend further maintains that, when the Indians next visited their Manitou and found only the few scattered stones, a deep, powerful voice floated across the water giving them instructions which they faithfully carried out. Each Indian took a portion of the broken idol and paddled his canoe to Swan Island, the refuge of the spirit. The voice bade them scatter the stones along the shore. As soon as this was done, each stone changed into a rattlesnake and became a sentinel to guard Manitou's retreat. The rattlesnakes remained in control until late in the eighteenth century, when the residents of Detroit, wishing to make the island habitable, placed large droves of hogs on it to destroy the snakes. Then the island was called Isle au Cochan, "Hog Island." As time pased, the land went from one owner to another until Barnabas Campau purchased it for five hundred dollars. Although the island was now private property, the city continued to use it as an isolation hospital, a dueling ground, and a place for picnics. On July 4, 1845, a picnic party named this beautiful spot a more appropriate name, Belle Isle, in honor of Belle Cass, daughter of Governor Cass without the knowledge or consent of the owner. Mr. Campau's family finally sold it to the city for S2000 in 1879. At that time it contained 768 acres, but today through reclamation of land, the park has 975 acres valued at 832,000,000 Thousands of people from many parts of the world admire this beautiful island annually. -Geraldine Partin.

The new officers were Sally Frick, president, Patty Gratton, vice-president, Marjorie Snyder, recording secretary, Erma Sewell, corresponding secretary, and Barbara Hyde, treasurer. Because of the good time that was had during the last house party at Woodbridge's cottage in Kingsville, it was decided that another should be given. It took place on January 20 at Betty Webb's cottage. Here, our party enjoyed its usual success. At present the girls are busy making scrapbooks and garments for the patients at the Child- ren's Hospital. We were honored on March 9 by Mr. Lewis and Mr. Whitmer, who gave a very interesting talk on their bicycle trip through Europe. The talk was accompanied by some excellent photographs. Plans were made for other interesting speakers. We are all very happy to have as our new members, Jean Athey, Jewel Waltman, Marge Cole, Ilma Findlater, Elizabeth Rieger, Tina Fee, Ann Evans, Nancy Povah, and Jean Sherman. Some of the girls who have acted as hostesses this year are Nancy Arbury, Lois Waldron, Sally Frick, and Tina Fee. Miss Voorhies and Miss Lamb have greatly aided us again this semester in their capacity as sponsors. We wish to express our sincere gratitude for their invaluable assistance. 82 THE NORTHERN GIRLS' CLUB THE Northern Girls' Club, one of the oldest clubs in Northern, is one of the many Girl Reserve Clubs related to the Y.

Under the guidance of Mrs. Cone, the club has added another semester to its excellent record. Philodendroi has many varied activities, such as movies, lectures, reports, and term projects. Among the programs of the past semester were movies taken by Mrs. Cone in the West. Travel re- ports and discussions of the various industries were given during each meeting. In April, the club will attend the Annual Flower Show. Several other excursions have been planned for the future. The group will visit the Wayrie Biology Department, the Museum of the Cranbrook Institute of Science, one of the leading creameries, and later the annual club picnic will be held. At these places the club will obtain a greater understanding of the biological principles. Mr. Ricardeau, President of the Detroit Herpetology Association, will be with us again this spring as guest speaker. ' , Chosen as this semester's project is a dictionary of biological terms, which is being made for the purpose of eliminating the difficult words found when using a dictionary. Active membership for this year consists of the following students: Betty Dobrovich, Philip Gannon, Shirley Lucow, Edsel Forsythe, Constance Chambers, Betty Batchko, Walter Kobe, Shir- ley Razzman, Armand Picon, Betty Ann King, Charles Rhead, Marie Oulette, Jack Esson, Mary Louise Zeigler, Donald James, Lillian Betz, Milton Cohen, Charlotte Touber, Harry Overstein, Rose Tamburro, Sarah Dobrovich, Martha Rives, Rochelle Holtzman, and Charles Rhead. The members wish to express their gratitude to Mrs. Cone for her kind sponsorship and guid- ance of the past. 84 ELLEN H. RICHARDS THE Home Economics Club of Northern High School, one of the many to have been organized throughout the country, honors one who has been one of the most important leaders in the United States, Ellen H. Richards. Mrs. Richards' leadership in the home economics movement was her greatest achievement. In 1899, she organized the Lake Placid Conference, which later became known as the American Home Economics Association of which she was the first president. The Ellen H. Richards Club of Northern High School has made this term one of the most enjoyable, under the leadership of the following officers: Grace Clarke, President, Geraldine Part- in, Vice-President, Virginia Robenault, Secretary, and Penelope Chiavaris, Treasurer. The activities of the club have been varied, including trips to Borden's and Greenfield Village, a picnic at Palmer Park, and a bingo party. They are proud of the fact that they had the pleasure of selling candy at the senior play, an undertaking which proved successful. The club is always anxious to lend assistance to the less fortunate, and for several semesters they have made contributions to some worthwhile cause. As usual, the fine reputation of the club has been retained throughout the term. A pledge is taken by each member to uphold the code which stands for: Service, Health, Courtesy, and Friend- ship. The club wishes to extend their sincerest appreciation to their sponsors, the Misses Trumbull and Holloway, for the co-operation they have showng and they also wish to bid good-bye to those who are leaving and may they always maintain their high ideals.

Under the capable sponsorship of Miss Russell and the guidance of the officers: Ruth Coult- er, presidentg Betty Bergmann, vice-presidentg America Diaz, secretary, and Victoria Sulatycki, treasurer, the club has promoted interest in the customs and language of Spain. At the regular meetings the club has traveled from Peru across the ocean to Alcazar in Spain and back to Mexico in the discussions. Miss Russel has enlivened these meetings with personal reminiscences of her experiences with our South American neighbors. The terpsichoreans of the club have learned the rhumba, the tango, and other traditional Spanish and South American dances. The gym has proved a means of recreation after the business meetings. A song fest of Spanish tunes concluded each session. On Pan-American Day the club presented a program of songs, poems and skits typical of the Americas. The initiation party did not completely uphold the motto of the club, for apparently the new members did not thoroughly enjoy themselves. On its outdoor fiestas the club toasted weiners to the accompaniment of Mexican melodies and munched sandwiches to the rhythm of the rhumba. At parties a Latin-American attitude was assumed and satisfaction was found in playing Spanish games and consuming chile con carne and tortillas. This year the members bought pins of Spanish design. Many bought Spanish dictionaries, which they find useful in translating modern literature. 86 DABBLERS DER the excellent guidance of our sponsor, Miss Bain, the Dabblers enjoyed many activities this year, including a variety of meetings. Our artistic work included sketches of decorative head compositions, fashion drawings, and out-of-door sketches. On open sketch days, everyone interest- ed in art was invited to attend meetings and draw in any medium he wished. When warmer weather greeted us, we had several field trips: the ones which proved to be the most interesting were to the Art Museum, the Artists' Mart, and the Pewabic Pottery. Our bicycle party in Palmer Park was an occasion for much rnerriment when Miss Bain proved to be a better cyclist than some of the members. The Dabblers will welcome any new members who have an interest in art, as well as artistic ability, and at least one year's study of art. The Dabblers are proud to say that much of ther work has often been published in the Vik- ing. 'Efficiently serving the club this term were Marcia Dubrucq, presidentg Leonard Alkon, vice- presidentg Betty Stambaugh, secretaryg and Mary Jane Hays, treasurer.

Adler Jack Pearlman President Sally Frick Vice-President John Rieger Secretary Dale Woolfenden Treasurer PHYSICS CLUB IN September of the year 1938, students in the physics classes began agitating for an extra-curric- ular gathering of classmen having a common interest in physics. Mr. E. C. Rolfe, physics teacher and sponsor of the Physics Club of 1937, when approached as to the feasibility of reviving the club, warmed up with, "Go ahead: but do your own planning." And so the Northern Physics Club was launched anew, floated on the enthusiasm of its mem- bers, navigated by its founders and officers, and headed toward the goal of furthering the interest in physics by a three-fold program. The officers laid out a course of two-Week meetings includ- ing Q11 lectures by outside speakersg Q21 tours afield: and 131 experimental demonstrations by its members. This loosely-knit organization proved popular and attracted an eager following. By the end of that semester, the Northern Physics Club was firmly entrenched as a school organization Earlv in the next semester, the capable officers having been popularly re-elected, a constitution was drawn up. The officers for the past year have been: Jack Pearlman, president' Sally Frick vice presi dentg John Rieger, secretaryg and Dale Woolfenden, treasurer. A full schedule of bi-weekly pro: ggilitlls Was lift to a chosen committee acting upon the suggestions of the members. Activities 0 . . . . D e semes er inc uded experimental demonstrations, tours of commercial laboratories to observe principles of physics in practice, and lectures by eminent physicists. The Northern Physics Club stressed the value of the physics curriculum in hi h h l h i u u g sc oo ast e stugly clf tri? practical application of all mathematic and scientific principles encountered previous o e we th grade. In order that the club may continue as a permanent instltutlon of Northern, all physics students are urged to inquire into its activities. . 88 FRENCH CLUB E Cercle Francais experienced a busy and successful year in 1939. The capable officers elected at the first meeting served their terms well. They were as fol- lows: President, Alba Paparellig Vice-President, Bessie Glicksteing Secretary, Martha Jane Bram- ley, and Treasurer, Clarence Ambrose. The advanced students served on a general committee with the officers, planning the meetings and social activities. The interesting and unique feature of our club lay in the fact that only French was spoken during our gatherings. At some of the meetings French plays were presented by the students, and an imaginary trip was taken through France with pictures and talks in French by the members. At various times we learned to work French crossword puzzles, jig-saw puzzles, and to play anagrams. We enjoyed singing French songs at the conclusion of several meetings. At an open meeting, a French film was shown on France, French life, and customs. The informal initiation of the new members offered amusement to all present. Among our numerous activities were trips to the Cinema Theater to see some excellent French movies. At our spring outing, a picnic, we had a grand time trying to put our French to good use. Miss Lutz, Mrs. Brown, and Miss Ward take turns sponsoring our club. This semester Miss Lutz was our gracious sponsor, and it is to her guidance that we owe much of our success.

Under the sponsorship of Miss Clawson, Miss Elliott, and Miss Teninga, the girls are continuing their policy of a full year. A dinner was given early in the season, at Peggy Snelgrove's home, for Trideal members and Alumni. Games followed the long and varied conversations over the table. W Last winter's snow may have caused grief to some, but to club members it meant an enjoy- able house party at Hickory Island. Trideal joined forces with Euterpe at Betty Webb's cottage and enjoyed winter sports of every color and description. The club this year extended its membership to include the following girlsf Elaine Richert, Jane Amos, Nancy Brown, Marlyn Braun, Jayne Cole, Ann Evans, Betty Upson, Maxine King, Eleanor Robison, Priscilla Eisman, Ann Webb, Joan Crews, and Pat Richardson. President Frances Cody has added new spice to Trideal with her suggestion of a club pin. It was agreed to have a triangular pin, representing the three ideals of Trideal: Friendship, Schol- arship, and Service, and a gold "T" on a background of black enamel. The season would not be complete without the traditional Trideal-House of Representatives dance. The SS Swing III was held in May and because of excellent management on part of mem- bers of both clubs was a huge success. l 90 HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES THE House of Representatives has added another semester to its many years of progress and growth. The officers, who did much to further the activities of the club, for the 34th session are as follows: Dud Brown, President, Joe Fee, Vice-President, Doug McLaug,hland, Secretary, and John Rieger, Treasurer, and Bob Pfaff, Sergeant-at-Arms. Many debates and speeches on public questions were given during the semester. During the Spring vacation, the members had a highly successful house party at LeRoy Brown's cottage on Lake Erie, and the session ended with a closed banquet at the Detroit Boat Club. The annual Spring dance with the Trideal, entitled SS Swing III, was a huge success marked by much gayety. Among the members who were prominent in other fields were Dud Brown, Art Editor, and John Rieger, Editor-in-Chief of the Northern Light. In athletics, Doug McLaughlan served as Co-Captain on the tennis team. Joe Fee, John Rieger, and Doug McLaughlan also did their bit for the Senior play. The House was honored during its past season by Mr. Whyte, who gave a very interesting talk on photography as well as a demonstration on photography itself. Mr. Simpson also furn- ished the members with an excellent talk on economic problems and the world crisis, a timely topic. . Mr. Kolbe's amiable sponsorship was Well received by the entire club.

'f CAMERA CLUB THE Northern Camera Club took huge strides forward this year under the able leadership of its sponsor, Mr. Whyte, and the president, Victoria Sulatycki. The vice-presidency was held by Victor La Bolle, with Ruth Coulter recording the minutes and Kennon Kay handling the finances. At the regular meetings, which were held every other Thursday, members discoursed on how to develop and print film. The latest cameras, films, exposure meters, light filters, portrait at- tachments and other paraphernalia were discussed and commended or condemned. Mr. Whyte lent the club his camera, which was greatly appreciated. Many snapshots of school activities taken by members appeared in the "Light" and "Viking" Early in the season the club visited the General Motors Research Laboratory and learned many educational facts concerning cameras, films, and such photographic necessities. At Palmer Park a novel treasure hunt was held which necessitated the use of cameras. Activities involving cameras, such as picnics, a hayride, and a trip to Greenfield Village constituted the other recrea- tional diversions. . The Camera Club feels it has accomplished its purpose of teaching its members the full use and value of their cameras. 92 S gi 1 'iw 53 I -,C Coach: Powers Captain: Eli Kaplanski First Row-S.

Graham Second Row-Coach Powers BOYS' BASKETBALL NORTHERN suffered its most disastrous basketball season in several years when it could win only three of its nine league games, two of which were won by one point. One consolation, how- ever, was the Eskis' upset of Hamtramck. Northern lost most of last year's team through graduation, and Coach Powers had to rebuild. The only veterans were Herman Jaffee, Clinton Canady, Eli Kaplansky, Tom Hubbard, and Sam Wisnitsky. Northern opened its season by losing to Northeastern by a score of 28-20. The Eskimos follow- ed this with their most brilliant triumph of the season - over Hamtramck. After a nip and tuck first half, Northern faltered in the third quarter and fell into a seven point deficit. But in the last period the Eskis scored fourteen points, three of which were produced in the last five sec- onds by Irv Cohen to clinch the game. After the Cosmos tilt Northern suffered a relapse and dropped its next five games, the con- querors being Denby, Highland Park, Southeastern, Eastern, and Commerce. It was the first time Northern had lost to Commerce in a good many years. The Eskimos closed the season by downing Miller and Pershing on successive Friday nights. Northern will have most of the team back next year and Coach Powers has uncovered poten- tial stars in Bob Fezzey and Irv Cohen. Cohen scored twenty-nine points in his last three games. Eli Kaplansky was high scorer for the team With fifty-two points.

Those returning are: Don Royston, catcherg Tom Hubbard and Al Applebaum pltch ersg Ray Copley and Mik Semionov, outfielders. Coach Dierkes will have to build h1s infield around new talent since there are no varsity infielders returning Mr. Dierkes is banking a lot on Tom Hubbard, who pitched a no-hitter against Cass Tech last year and was the mainstay of the pitching staff.

GIRLS' SWIMMING TEAM WITH Miss Giddings as coach, the girls' varsity swimming team opened their season by having a triangular meet With Eastern and Southeastern on February 15. The final score was South- eastern 7 8, Northern 40, and Eastern 26. Other meets and their scores are as follows: February 28, Northeastern 66, at Northern 533 March 1, Northern 37 at Highland Park 805 March 15, Northern 49, at Central 68. , S The outstanding group of the season was the unbeaten medley relay team consisting of Mary Bet. Starrett, backstrokeg Muriel Swetka, breaststrokeg and Carolyn Clayton, swimming the crawl. ' I Peggy Meehan, Marjorie Love, Mary Thompson, and Nadia McKay proved to be a well-organ- ized free style relay team. A The diving was carried on in excellent form by Mary Beth Starrett and Madelyn Crites. Miss Starrett, diving for the team for her second year, took two first places, one second place, and two third places. . Miss Crites, during her first year of diving for the team, took one second place and one third place. The team as a whole wishes to extend its thanks for the loyal support of the fans, who turned out in great numbers to witness the two meets held at Northern. The season was rounded off by both-the girls' and the boys' swimming teams holding forth with an enthusiastic splash party on Wednesday, March 29, and a picnic at River Rouge on Friday, April 28. 96 TRACK TEAM NORTHERN'S weakness in the distance events prevented them from having one of the best track teams in the city this year. The Eskis won all but one of their dual meets and split a triangular meet with Hamtramck and Cass. In dual competition, the Norsemen were victorious over North- eastern, Pershing. Denby, and Miller, While losing to Cass Tech. In the city finals, Ed Soloman was the only Eski to place. He captured a second in the low hurdles and a third place in the dash to take five joints. Ray Copley, Northern's ace shot-putter, placed in the East Side Meet but faltered in the finals. Leonard Alkon Won the 220 yard event in the East Side Meet and seemed well on his way to a city title when he was informed that he was ineligible because he had transferred from another school Without changing his address. Although Northern will lose James Lewis, Croxton, Ray Copley, and Donald Morton, the re- turn of Ed Soloman and Leonard Alkon's reinstatement should give Northern a strong squad next year. g -.4 is 1 f . r, 'Y g ' rim Row-B.

Moore GIRLS' BASKETBALL THIS year has been no exception in the long line of good teams at Northern. All the girls were experienced players from last year. The firsteam lineup was as follows: Virginia Beale, Mar- jorie Holmes, Dorothy Thompson, Betty Fabac, Geraldine Spare, Dolores Bathey, Idabelle Smithg with Virginia and Dorothy as co-captains. The season began with an easy victory over Eastern, 23-13. Fast shots by Virginia Beale and good guarding by Idabelle Smith helped to cinch the game. Our girls showed lack of practice against the Highland Park six with a 25-17 defeat and against the undefeated Northwestern team, 29-18. The two most exciting games of the season, with Hamtramck and Central, were won with scores of 21-20 and 18-16. Betty Fabac's speedy baskets and Geraldine Spare's elect guarding saved the game for the Eskimettes. The undefeated Central girls were a little baffled by the long shots of Dorothy Thompson and the exceptional defense of Dolores Bathey. According to tradition, the girls, in the garb of the "Dead End" kids, met the boys, in skirts, sun-suits, and painted faces, in a game of outstanding comedy and little basketball. The Eskimettes closed their season, bowing again to Highland Park, 6-2, but defeating Redford, 16-3, on play day held at Northwestern. Although graduation will take most of the team, the exceptional coaching of Miss Delaney will soon produce another winning team for 1940. 98 !

Let's go to press! Robert Barry, ace United Press cameraman, sailed last night on the S. S. President Roose- velt to risk his life in the filming of the new native revolt in Tibet. Virginia Beale, last night at the Madison Square Garden basketball exhibition shot 97 baskets out of her hundred chances, which showed immense courage on her part. She play- ed with a sprained wrist. The Stork Club this week is featuring a new act, Beaver and Rieger, between whom we see a definite split before long. It will be Rieger's IIIrd failure. Of all the playboys, Charley.Derr, who had ben losing money constantly has decided to take a big chance. He is buying the former "Crosby CBing1 Stables." What are his chances for success? Bidwell of Kennelworth, English airdale, owned by Miss Joan Donaldson has been found in the City Pond. Tales are wagging again. An American art student in Paris, Marcia Dubrucq, has been honored by the French Gov- ernment in placing an exhibition of modern art in the noted French Saloon. The Mary J. Evans Shoppe of Fifth Avenue is featuring the new Uwhiffle cut," new hairdress for women which eliminates combing. Fanny Neuman, a small town bu'tcher's Wife with aspirations to be a writer, has astounded literary critics with her latest attempt, "Yes, My Darling, Slaughter!" Clovis "Apple" McDonald, who has entertained us for years with his eccentricities, drowned early today in the "National Bobber's Contest." The Monte Carlo Ballet has opened a new season with a show at Carnegie Hall. Their premier ballerina who reminds us of the famous Vera Zorina of another decade, Marjorie Lyman has started divorce proceedings again show, "I Married A Devil!" , 106 JUNE 2 VIKING Q 1939 GRAD GOSSIP The last time Lester Russell, our local Casa- nova, asked his "steady," an alumna of 1938, if she liked "simple things," she asked if he was proposing. Lawrence Rosenthal thought he might pick up a little summer-time job afer graduation and therefore applied for one. He asked to be given work in his line provided with the proper equipment. The prospective employer asked what his trade was. "Rosie" answered, 'Tm a capitalist." Ruth Tracy had her infant sister out for a bit of a walk the other day. She told Shirley Parr that she had been walking since she was eight months old. "Parr" replied, "Really? She must be awfully tired 2" At a recent dance, while Shirley Hermann was dancing with Billy Menzel, she remarked that the floor was awfully slippery. "Sweet William" replied cautiously that he had just had his shoes shined and that the dance floor had nothing to do with it! Dale fWoof-Woofj Woolfenden was shaving for about the first time when Eddie Sinclair came over to "heckle" him. Eddie noticed the empty safety razor and asked Dale why he did- I i 1 1 i 1 I i l l n't put a blade in it. Dale cried, "What, use a blade and cut myself!" Jayne Cole in one of her 'tpunny moods" was discussing the "movies" and their abundance of "Westerns" of late, she said the producers must be Usage-struck!" Eleanor Robison went shoe-shopping the oth- er day for a comfortable pair, which would also be "good-looking" and stylish. When she told Maxine King about her desire, Maxine King said, "Yeh, I know, the kind that are small out- side and large inside." Billy Ryan bought a verb blank for his French Class, and right away Billy Parr asked him what he was going to do with it. There were no pictures in it! A rumor has gotten around that John Rieger III was broughtup on the memoirs of Casanova instead of Mother Goose! Ruthie Opp gave Nancy Arbury her only rea- son for calling the "thing" she had on her head a hat. She said it must be one because she bought it at a milliner's. Leonard Robbins walked into the chemistry lab with an ax the other day ready for a lesson. Peaceably, Messrs. Schmidt and Warner tried to tell him that splitting the atom called for a more subtle approach.

OUR SENIOR CLASS Listen to me and you shall hear Of the model class of this school year, Of students mor clever than those of old, And each one worth his Weight in gold. They're studious, honest, brave, and true, Polite, upright, and intelligent too. They know their lessons from stem to stern And all special assignments they easily learn. They're never found empty-handed, And lessons are always done Before they're demanded. They shine in studies, Work and play, Golly, I wish We really were that way! BROWN CREAMERY CO.
