the beauty and fascinating charm
of that country.

An air of mystery pervades the Municipal Airport. Some twenty youthful
travelers are waiting with an ill-suppressed anxiety. The information desk is
besieged by curious ticket holders. To each is vouchsafed the same answer,
"There's to be a ceremony of some kind in a few minutes." The minutes drag
on. As the clock shows five minutes to eight two important things happen: the
door opens to admit a party of Steinmetz teachers headed by Principal
O'Hearn, and a new, huge plane is maneuvered into place on the runway.
The youthful travelers can no longer restrain their excitement and, with a brief
greeting to the faculty party, dash to the plane and climb aboard.
Precisely as the clock points to eight, Miss Adams steps to the prow of the
sleek plane, in her hand a bottle of something or other, maybe ink, Mr.
O'Hearn motions for silence and, with the words, "I christen thee Silver Streak"
Miss Adams smashes the bottle on the side of the cabin. The motors start, idle
a moment, burst into a deep roar and the Silver Streak staff is off to gather
the information which has made possible this volume.
With pride and joy We-dedicate our
second annual to Mr. Gifford who
guaranteed our happy landing in
Mexico. Naturally this theme was
inspired by his yen for things Mex-
ican. To you, Mr. Gifford!
MR. DANIEL F. O'HEARN
Two years ago we didn't know you at all. One year ago we regarded you
with a good bit of awe. Now, on the eve of leaving Steinrnetz, we think of
you as a kindly gentleman who makes rules only when rules are necessary
and then enforces them with a srnile, one who is never too busy for a pat on
the back to a deserving student or a word of friendly counsel to a bewildered
one. We like you, Mr. O'Hearn, good-bye.
This first mid-year edition of the Silver Streak is an expression of our
pleasure in the continued and splendid development ot the Steinmetz Spirit
in' our beautiful high school. The faculty and I commend the students and
thank the community for their fine initiative and loyal, steady aid in develop-
ing and fixing our new ideal of "Service for Steinmetzf'

The open road,-a goal,-the spirit of "I will."
What more is there to Want? What more to

The graduating class of Ianuary, l936, has
plenty ot musical talent. All the musicnurnbers
of their commencement were rendered by gradu-
ating pianists, singers, and chorus of the entire
body. It has been gratifying to see the program
Harriet L. Robertson.
Only yesterday a busy Loop business man,
who was a student oi mine ten years ago recalled
some interesting experiences from my class room,
-which makes me hope that members of this
fine class may remember our association for a
long time, as I certainly will.
To speak little but not small is my virtue. To
you all l say "Be loyal". On you graduates I
urge "Know thyself".
The graduates of l936 have my best wishes.
It has been pleasant to work with these interest-
ing and ambitious young people. I hope that their
sincerity, courage, and perseverance will bring
them success and happiness.
You have proved to be a loyal, sincere group
of young people and my Contact with you has
been a very happy one. -

May our Seniors on leaving us carry continuing memories of Steinmetz Silver and Green.
May their high resolves continue to "gre-en" and grow while young and yet when their hair is
"silver." May they grow deservedly famous in character and scholarship among their fellows
keeping Steinmetz tradition "green" and may Steinmetz "silver's" high conductivity convey
freely the warmth of their good and true hearts to needy companions on'life's journey. '
A well disciplined mind,
like any treasure, is acquired
by hard work and kept only
by constant watching. This,
we trust, is among the things
you have learned during your
four years in high school.
Best wishes for your future
H. A. Iackson.

"What men need today in this
time of trouble is not a way out
so much as a way ot high and
manly living within."MLewis.
May thinking clearly, and
acting with honest unseltish

lives, as these ideals have
governed your best leaders in

minutes more and the Ozarks are beneath us, our first mountains. Oil wells
welcome us to Oklahoma and the more observing of the passengers report an
Indian now and then. Now it must be Texas. Sure, there's Dallas where a
World's Fair is being prepared. Miles and miles of Texas and there, glistening
in the evening sun is the Rio Grande. Too late to cross, however: so we land
and prepare to try out our Mexican language on the inhabitants of Laredo.
Morning finds us uneasily awaiting the take-off. Wonder if we'll see a fiesta,
or a bull-fight, or a revolution. Maybe the R.O.T.C. should have come with us.
We're off again cmd this time we'll be landing on foreign soil. Immigrants, so
to speak. What of it? So were our parents or parents' parents somewhere
along the line.
The Senior Class
ot Ianuary, 1936
When the members of the class ot lanu-
ary, 1936, elected officers in April, 1935, they
began to show their good sense, capability,
and enthusiasm for doing things.
Under the leadership of the Senior Class,
the clubs and athletic teams have taken
many strides toward their single goal, "Serv-
ice for Steinmetzf' Because they have let
no obstacles stop them in their determination
to have a prom, their plans have been com-
pleted to that end and at this date, it prom-
ises success. Other social functions-such
as the dance given for the lune '35 Class
and the 4A Christmas dance this year have
meant enjoyable hours for the Seniors.
All in all, the Senior Class has done its
very best to be the guiding star tor the under-
classmen, and although it remains to be
seen whether they were or not, certainly no
class that follows will ever try harder to tit
the pattern set by the former classes. Now
the Senior Class ot lanuary, 1936, leaves
Steinmetz, but will not pass into oblivion,
because the year and a half spent at Stein-
metz has proven that every member has
the necessary requirements to achieve a
favorable termination of anything attempted.,

. Saddle Back mountain indicates our first stop, Monterey. We're thrilled, of
course. No bandits, no revolutionaries greet us: instead a delegation of busi-
ness men who escort us to a luncheon prepared in our honor. A right good
luncheon it is, too, though we don't have the best of technique in handling the
"tortillas." A drive through town, to the Bishop's Palace and to Horse Tail Falls
fills the afternoon. The evening is spent at a concert in the Plaza. A night at a
splendid hotel and We're ready for more sight-seeing. A rather hurried trip
to Saltillo, famous for its "zerapes", occupies the forenoon and then it's "On to
One of the most beautiful cities on the American continent greets our eyes.
We find accommodations for the night, stroll for a few minutes in the business
streets and have dinner in La Gruta, the famous underground restaurant.
There's so much to see and so little time to see it that We're a little bewildered.
Over the dinner table, however, we map out the plan for tomorrow. Some
of us will go to the floating gardens of Xochimilco and take the boat ride
through the canals. Others wish to see the Pyramids of San Iuan Teotihuacan
and other sights of an archeological nature. The remainder of the party ex-
press a preference for Mt. Popocatepetl, the smoking mountain. In the evening
all who will attend a fiesta given in our honor.
Parting Words of the February Class of l936
"All aboard," cried a suave-looking steward in neat uniform, standing in
the cabin door of the Mexico limited, Silver Streak Plane. Last minute good-bys
were hastily said. Meanwhile a host of late comers scurried aboard, Louis
Papandrea among them. With a soft whir the plane took off.
"Whee," he gasped as he sank into a seat and wiped his brow, "l almost
forgot to 'will' my megaphone to the new cheerleader before I left. l hope he
can take it-I mean the way the kids tease us poor cheerleaders at games,"
he added, reilectively.
"Speaking of games, I left Canadeo the job of being football captain in my
stead." This from a husky lad, namely lames Dickstein.
Your past experience should be useful, if you decide to take up bull-fighting
in Mexico," laughingly spoke loe Koop. "But l really shouldn't pull those
cracks anymore, since l left my gift of gab to Bob Hawley."
"He should be twice as loquacious as before," put in Ioe Munson in his usual
polysyllabic vocabulary, but hastened to change the subject. "l hope the flies
aren't as plentiful in Mexico, because l left a battery of anti-aircraft guns to the
R.O.T.C, to ward off those bothersome classroom pests."
ln the meantime Dolores Boelke and Margaret Balk, peering through the win-
dow, became quite excited at the sight of a gaucho astride a straggly burro
below. "l hope they're easier to ride than horses," said Dolores with expecta-
tion in her voice.
"Oh! l forgot to tell you that l left some padded classroom seats to our fem-
inine equestrian enthusiasts back home." This from Margaret.
"Yes," reflected Emma Robisch sadly, "and we're leaving the whole G. A. A.
behind with the fun of its hikes, rollerskating parties, and ping-pong games."
"Cheer up," broke in an anonymous history student, "we also left volumes
of history references for Mr. Bjornson's tuture history classes." Deep sighs at
the remembrance of past studiousness.
Meanwhile, Mr. Biornson's former division was raising quite a rumpus in the
the back of the plane in their customary fashion. Charles Wilhelm, warding
off a barrage of rubber bands, managed to interject a few words. "To Mr.
Bjornson we bequeath a division of serious-minded girls to atone for our boister-
ousness last semester."
Gladys Deacon, disdaining the hilarity from this noisy bunch said, "To
Mr. O'Hearn we leave Steinmetz and all it represents: the football team to
crash more goal lines: the Dardanelles to stimulate more school projects: the
Honor Society to maintain standards, the student body to keep Steinmetz
beautiful, the faculty to lend a helping handy and the beautiful building to
remind us constantly that a thing of beauty is a joy forever."
This thought was interrupted by "Lunch will now be served," to which every-
one heartily responded. '
Prophecy of Class of 1936 .
Time: 1950 '
Place: Mexico City, Mexico.
Dirty, ragged, hungry-looking children playing in the dirty, cluttered streets
-a hot bright sun glaring down-garlic permeating the air-vendors shout-
ing their wares-lazy peons lounging in doorways. Yet in the distance ma-
jestic mountains pierce the clear blue haze. Mexico! Land of romance and
golden adventure. Land of heartbreak and song. Land of gay dancing feet
and midnight street brawls. To this emotional crazyquilt, we of 1936 have
come to hold our class reunion.
lt seems that the program committee, Lorraine Halawith, Mae l-leitschmidt,
Bruce l-lelwig, and Dorothy Hofmann have planned a harmless little bull fight
for the afternoon and a dinner dance afterward at one of those native Mexican
lt is time for the bull fight and we are wending our way with difficulty to
the arena. The streets are narrow, and the directions painted upon houses are
hard to find, we have lost our way many times. ln our travels, we have met
Ellen Beck, Margaret Lopachuk, and Stella Gotaas, who have blossomed into
the most straight-laced spinsters. They are being chaperoned by Bee Mealins
on their trip from the Old Maids' Institution to the reunion.
By the River San luan de Dios we spy some women grinding corn for tor-
tillas in a metate. And what a picture it is! Dorothy Stott, Grace Wohler, and
Grace Wolters, are bending laboriously over their crude utensils, although
they seem contented with their lot in life. Close by on the other shore, content-
ment is personified by the Misses Schrom and Pierce seated on the bridge,
snoozing peacefully with fishing poles in their hands.
Near the bull fight arena, a handsome bcrrker with a goatee is captivating
the great unwashed populace of Mexico. He is George Kind. His wild hand-
waving and convincing tone have attracted those alarming young ladies,
Alice Blake, Virginia Butler, Gladys Deacon, Evelyn Dembski, Marie Dillman,
lennie Pogach, Esther Pick, and Hilda Boll.
Greeting their former classmates are Ed Lutz and Shirley Manheim. They
are business partners and, among other enterprises, are the successful owners
of the arena. Their names appear on the sign at the entrance.
Close by, a group is playing Mexican Ping Pong. They are identified as
Uno Gustafson, Norma Narwood, Marcella Gill, Ruth Babe, l-lermina Wild, and
Geraldine Smith. Another crew of boys, loe Notardonato, Lester Nelson, and
Michael lamrock are standing by with hot tamales for sale.
The crowd is clamoring to get in. We push our way to our reserved seats
but, to our surprise, we find them occupied by Lillian Andersen and Winifred
Thime, who exit graciously after gentle persuasion.
What a jubilant affair it is! Dark-eyed, coquettish senoritas, brilliant, blind-

odor of hot tamales, dozens ot events occurring at the same instant! There is
the marimba band ready to start the iestivity. Dashing Chuck Wilhelm, attired
in a zarape and sombrero is leading Rita Strudeman, Mildred Hoglund, Ann
Raitael, Margaret Balk, Lorraine Nelson, and Lorraine Foss, and Myrtle An-
Atter this bit ot entertainment an expectant hush comes over the audience.
A tlash ot red satin and the contest between man and beast is on. At this
critical moment we burst into undignitied giggles, tor we have just recognized
the toreador. He is none other than Vernon Anderson. Clothed elegantly in
the gaily colored satin raiment ot the toreador, he is unaware ot our laughter
as he uses his powers of concentration tdeveloped at his alma mater? on the
bull's eyes. A
We see Lillian Criel and Violet Baddatz stationed at the gate of the arena.
Marion Berkowitz, sitting in an adjacent seat, tells us that they are agents ot
the Daly Pullman Insurance Company. lt is their duty to stand by with
stretchers in case the toreador cannot keep at least one step ahead ot the

We glance up just in time to see the last tew dramatic moments ot action.
The bull is conquered and a cheer from the happy' Crowd greets the victorious
matador. A shower of roses from the lovely senoritas falls into the arena, and
to the loud music of the band, the hero ot the hour is carried to the adjoining
building, which is the meeting place oi the elite.
ln the exodus is -seen Helen Iagielko, Martha johnson, Irene Kaminski,
Dorothy Kettleson, Helga Lint, Vivien Koch, Florence Matthei, and Lucille Maz-
zuchelli. A loud, enraged voice belonging to a very plump, slightly bald indi-
vidual, who is gesticulating wildly, commands our attention. The man is
demanding his money back, insisting the performance was not worth the
peso. We are not astonished to learn he is joe Koop. ,
While passing, we had a short conversation with Emma Bobisch and Helen
Ptosit, owners ot a pastry shop in San Francisco.
Louis Papandrea, former cheer leader, is engaged as gigolo, ushering his
wealthy patroness into the cafe.

4A's Take Part in Steinmetz Drama
Three of the characters in "The Millionaire," presented by the Green Curtain
Players in lanuary, l936, were played by members of the graduating class.
The old Woman, Aunt Adeline, Was played by luanita Richardsong the hero,
Gideon Heath, played by Charles Nomellini, and light-headed Lottie Pringle
Was played by Verna Lithander.
A starry-eyed youngster slowly ascends the stairs, but with a glance at the
"Down" sign, retraces his steps. l-le repeats his question for the third time,
and doubtfully walks down the hallway, scowling at the room numbers.
Finally, with an expression of heavenly relief, he darts into Room 312,
thankful for its appearance. A dozen or more similar incidents occur each
day to these promising youngsters-the Ereshies. Gradually, as homework
becomes burdensome and books become heavier, We find the Freshmen being
absorbed in the general routine of school.
With difficulty they get their Algebra, with scorn they correct their grammar,
with a touch of crudeness they form their foreign language verb charts, but
with a burst of pleasure they shout their motto:
"Green but growing." Edna Fenton.
With grateful smiles, the "had been" Ereshies bid good-bye to their first
division teachers and to their "green but growing" pains. Happily, they wel-
come the arrival of their second year.
They have partly overcome their shyness and uncertainty of a year ago.
They regard their teachers as a bit more human, but still tremble at their
They succeed in hitting the volley ball over the net.
They are admitted skeptically into the dances.
They applaud at the Wrong time during assemblies.
Yet, they are good sports especially in regard to homework, about which
they meaningly remark, "We're green but groaning." Edna Fenton.
With a hearty grin, the erstwhile sophomores resume their studies as Iuniors.
There are no slackers among these third-year students for by this time they
have been Weeded out. These people are "in love" With their studies. With
two years to go, they are Willing to work diligently. Most of them are making
their debut in activities. Dardanelles is open to the intelligent girls of the class
and Sigma Quad offers equal privileges to the interested boys. A dance a
semester is at their disposal, proceeds of which remain in the class treasury
until commencement. Things can be discussed intelligently with them. On a
whole, their intelligence is increasing and one might say, "they are green but
coming OUT." Eleanor Hansen.
The Sayre Branch of
Steinmetz is glad to
have a place in the
finest of annuals, the
Silver Streak. We are,
all of us, very, very
proud to be a part of
such a fine institution,
and our students look
forward to the day
when they will move
over to the main build-
ing and get into the
swim. We are proud of
Steinmetz, and it is our aim to make Steinmetz proud of us.
William E. McBride.
On September 16, l935, the Sayre Branch of the Steinmetz High School
opened its doors to the hundred and sixty-two of us Clrreshmen and Sopho-
moresl in order to provide space for the overflow at the main building. Since
our quarters are on the third floor, it behooves us, the guests, to be quiet over
the heads of our hosts, the elementary pupils. The turmoil of the opening week
was rapidly checked by the efforts of pupils and teachers alike. Before many
days our routine was functioning as smoothly as the delicate parts of a watch.
Although the curriculum offered here is smaller than that of the main building,
we have, besides the three "R's" three languages, sewing, cooking, shop, art,
gymnasium, music, and numerous commercial subjects. l
Besides the regular class work we have organized a basketball squad under
the coaching of Mr. McBride, the big fellow with the bigger smile. We have
also had a Halloween party with vaudeville and dancing combined and a
Thanksgiving charity show where Mr. McBride, as Major Bowes, announced in
his own inimitable way, the various features of the program.
Since the ideals of courtesy, obedience, and cooperation are held constantly
before us, we hope that our elder brothers and sisters will be proud some day
to welcome us at Steinmetz.

othy Coleman is pulling her unfaithful spouse, Chester Shepanek, by the

cafe, witness this old Mexican custom.
just then a very unladylike scream comes from Elizabeth Uclry. She is
astounded at the presence of the famous professors, Helen Harzheim, Mildred
Holub, Mary Millan, and Olga Garryluck, who are developing "bigger and
better cactus for Mexico." Evelyn Owen and Al Lustig are also engaged in
scientific pursuit. They have nearly perfected a species of non-buckable
The Mexican atmosphere is complete. Lawrence Erickson, the head waiter,
and his staff, Genevieve Horynchuk, Sylvia Millville, june Rettke, Dorothy
Mortrude, Charlotte Laue, and june Matthisen, over whom he exerts his
dictatorial powers, all speak fluent Mexican. We are flattered to be served
by the head waiter but are completely defeated by the menu:

With the help of Lawrence, we were able to struggle through the meal.
During our entanglement with these Mexican epicurean delights, Virginia
Michalski and Lillian Galazkiewicz, scandal mongers for Excelsior, Mexico
City's leading newspaper, have been relating the details of Rae Berry's
untimely departure from the court of justice. Fred Benson and Albert Ander-
sen were the culprits who tired of his Student Council tyranny and Horace La
Rock, Steve Eybak, Leonard Kwiatkowski, Kenneth Foster, Paul Mielke, Wer-
ner Leavitt, George llman, Bob Schultz, and George Wittenburg, the U.S.
marines, have been appointed to bring justice to the fore.

Buchholtz, Robert Craig, and Edward Garstka escorting Grace Paukner, Alice

flowing gowns, entered, creating quite a stir.

The day thus planned is a huge success. With the tinkle of guitars cmd the

short as possible," signed, Faculty and students of Steinmetz High School.
So, with minds full of regrets about sights missed and with pockets full of
Mexican jumping beans, we start at once. It's a non-stop flight this time. With
luck We'll make it by division time. "Adios," Mexico, "hasta la vista." Greet-

Qne Semester with the Dardanelles
"Have you bought your school spirit pin yet?" On October 28th and 29th
this query greeted you as you entered the building, was popped at you in the
corridors, interrupted your course between classes, and even followed you to
lunch. The instigators of this campaign were the enthusiastic Dardanelles who
sold two thousand pins before the end of the second day.
The Dardanelles' initiation ceremonies brought them into the school spot-
light a second time. Here and there in the halls and in classes, prospective
members Cand there were many, since the constitution was revised to admit
juniors? were seen adorned with paper hats, cardboard owls, olives, miniature
brooms, and small wads of cotton. lnquiring students gleaned no information
from these curiously decorated girls who were pledged to silence for the
Then came Thanksgiving and the Turkey Trot Carnival. Dancing, palm
reading, handwriting analyzation, trinket sales, an auction, refreshments, and
an assembly added to the festivity and helped swell the Thanksgiving
The Christmas collection also found active supporters in the Dardanelles.
ln raising funds for this project they were aided by the newly formed Sigma
Quad, a boys' club similar to the Dardanelles. Evelyn Bauerle.
There are two dramatic classes at Steinmetz. ln Dramatics l, the history of
the drama, pantomime, and voice are studied. It is in this class that the
sketches used in assembly programs are written and produced. ln Dramatics
ll, pantomime, voice, and the modern drama are emphasized.
This semester brought about the formation of an honorary club, The Green
Curtain Players, for dramatic class members. Any member of the dramatic
classes who has earned one point for services either as an actor in a sketch
or play, or as a member of the costume, publicity, or stage committees, is

proposition, the members prefer travel slides and Miss Sechler's interpretation
of French plays and poetry. But seriously speaking, they really are an ambi-
tious lot, and hope to perfect their French before making their reservations on
The Lettermen's Club has opened its first year as one of the leading organ-
izations of the school. The first officers are Louis Papendrea, president, Frank

Mr. Havlicek has been acting as sponsor and is known as a real pal and
leader among the boys.
Each semester a banquet is held in honor of the new members. At the
banquet the "S's" are given to the boys who have taken part in making the
name ot Steinmetz tamous.
The letter "S" is a symbol of an accomplished athlete and is the goal for
which every boy strives.
The'main purpose ot this club is to acquaint with each other the young
men who have earned a letter. lt upholds the fine practices of the school and
is one of the best liked of all the organizations in Steinmetz, chiefly, probably,
because of its sponsor, Mr. I-lavlicek, who feels that the club is the most
important in the school, as the members have all contributed so much to the
Steinmetz spirit. Frank Pikrone.

into our told.
Fraulein Brindl, and Frau Purcell, our sponsors, help us to understand that
healthy, vigorous, Warm-hearted race, the Germans.
Through an acquaintance With O, Tannenbaum and Die Lorelei, the Rhine,
Heidelberg, Berlin, the Spreewald, and the Rathskeller, We get to know how
the Germans really live, feel, and think. The club has endeavored to portray
these things to us in place ot subjunctives, tuture tenses, and gerunds.

There's a burst of applause as the stage curtain closes and an admiring
crowd slowly leaves the auditorium. Everyone is filled with the one hope of
being admitted to the club so highly esteemed that its annual initiation is an
occasion for an assembly. December l7 was the day set aside to congratulate
the new members of the Steinmetz Chapter of the National Honor Society.
Scholarship, initiative, and service characterizes this select group. Naturally
everyone who aims for the happier things of life is rating the National Honor
Society as the first step in this direction.

We have all heard bulletin announcements about the P.T.A. but how many
of us know its real purpose? The organization has a definite aim, the bringing

teachers who are devoted to the interests of American youth. Together they
Work for the common good ot the students.
Many activities are carried on by the organization to benefit the needy. At
present the group is conducting a series of tours, one each month, for which
a small fee islcharged. The proceeds go to the Student Aid Fund. Some of
the past tours have included visits to the Wieland Dairy, Chicago Lighting

being planned to the Boys' Court and an ice plant.

R. C. T. C.
The Steinrnetz R.O.T.C., under the supervision of Sergeant Carl Christoffer-
sen, U.S.A. and its own student officers, is progressing rapidly since its incep-
tion this September.
Cadet First Lieutenant Ioseph Munson is in command of the Battalion with
Cadet Second Lieutenctnts George Kind and Robert Levin as Adjutant and
Plans and Training Officer, respectively. Classes in Rifle Marksmanship are
carried on regularly, and proficiency in the use of the rifle is being realized.
The unit, numbering l75 this term, is divided into three periods, each under
the command of ct competent officer or Non-Commissioned man. The activities
Within the unit include squad competition for both neatness and efficiency,
the selection of a "crack" rifle squad, the awarding of medals and merit bars
for neatness, efficiency, and recruiting.
The first medal ever to be awarded a Steinmetz R.O.T.C. cadet was given
to Cadet Sergeant Clyde Iames, Second Period Commander, for enrolling the
highest number of recruits, 28, in the unit during the term.

Steinmetz, the Silver Streak has
done its very best to portray
the activities ot the classes,

"Courtesy is one of the most enthralling subjects ever. Whole books have
been written on it. I realize now that even my own paper, The Chicago
Tribune, publishes each Sunday an article on etiquette and people spend
much of their lives learning how to learn it as well as the performing of
any duty. Henry Vaughn has said: 'There is always a best way of doing
everything, if it be to boil an egg. Manners are the hCI1fJ19Y way of doing
thingsp each one a stroke of genius orof love, now repeated and hardened in
usage.' To grow up into courtesy one must acquire these traits in the home.
Anna Steese Richardson has said in her book on social graces: 'Social success
or failure is founded upon family relations and manners in the home. No
finishing school can supply and no amount of money can buy, the habits of
consideration and courtesy, the ease and graciousness acquired naturally in
daily home life.' l asked Miss Bartlett, our etiquette editor, to write me some-
things l could read to you about courtesy. Here is what she said: 'Observe
personal and property rights of others. Perform the most graceful way possi-
ble. Cultivate poise, self-assurance, and confidence. Remember 'good sports-
Not the least of the many attractive features of Courtesy Week was Phil
Maxwell's assembly address, excerpts of which appear above. Mr. lVIaXwell's
remarks climaxed a week of campaigning for courtesy in all its phases, habits
at home and school, social customs, and a broader understanding of culture.
Daily we were reminded to become "socially conscious," as we viewed
dramatic sketches, and heard student and faculty comments. Each assembly
impressed upon us the close relationship of courtesy to our Steinmetz Spirit.
Naturally, we were glad to hear Mr. O'l-learn proclaim Courtesy Week as the
beginning of Courtesy Year at Steinmetz, and to thank the committees and
advisers for its initiation.

PROPHECY OF CLASS 'OF 1936
fContinued from Page Fortyl
The room is filling guickly. Laughter and the tinkling of glasses add to the prevailing noise.
lames Dickstein, the star beef-heaver of the gridiron, has just entered. He is now star beef-heaver
of the local stockyards, the one, incidentally! that furnished the bull for the entertainment this
afternoon. "Stein" is making his way through the crowd toward a table where sit Ioe and
Lorraine Munson Cnee Hazuchal, Herb Friemuth, Mildred Kropp, and the bachelor banker president,
There is trouble brewing as Ruth Priebe makes coguettish glances at the gentlemen farmers.
lt is a very comical sight. Ruth is dressed in a charming costume, and is selling cigarettes to
wide-eyed Robert Nottke, Clarence Wanhatalo, Paul Iaccino. Their domineering senoras, Ruth
lllg, Olga Horodny, and Helen I-loroba, naturally resent the advances.
There's a loud drumming sound-then crash. The master of ceremonies is asking for our atten-
tion. lt's Charles Nomiline and he's up to his old tricks. "In a few moments, Senors and
Senoritas, a magnificent performance will be staged, far exceeding your expectations. May I
present Senorita Ella lean Woodward and Senor Vernon Roudbusch in scenes from 'Rio Rita'?"
Following this delightful combination, a group of dancers holds us spellbound as they unravel
their tango. The group is composed of the following members: Ruth Williamson, Kenneth Willis,
Harry Swanson, Harriet Wey, Arthur Schwab, Elsie Werderitch, lohn Yarema and Ladis Tomasie-
wiz, Ralph Zappel and Lenore Swiontek. A grind organ and monkey act followed which merited
great acting ability on the part of Norman Derrig, Ray Gats, Uno Gustafson, Frances Dudziak,
lune Brown, Alice Andreason, Eileen Kitch, and luanita Richardson.
The grand finale was a Mexican Chorus -composed of Margaret Ftottman, Gwendolyn Stott,
Lucille Smetana, Lorraine Wedman, Eleanor Penner, Iune Eidnes, Ervin Bradoc, Lloyd Blue,
Charles Fuller, Waler Sweiteck, and Clifford Ring. The impressive Rumba orchestra was composed
of Rose Pheiffer, Mary Nikifarow, Alborg Orlid, Dorothy Qunadee, Frances Rindt, and Bernadine
Too quickly the merriment for the evening ended, "hasta la vistas" were said, and our burros
were brought to the door for the journey home. into the night we rode with Vaya con Dios still
ringing in our hearts.
