To that man who during
our life at the Tech has so
willingly given of his artis-

To portray the activities of the school,
To picture the lzfe in the classroom,
To perpetuate the ideals of an ever greater Tech
Such is the aim of the I 928 TECHOES.
' TECHOGSO '
ORANGE AND BLACK
On the banks of the Mississippi
Where the waters gently How,
Stands a noble granite city,
Which was founded long ago
It has in its realms a High School
Which fame did never lack:
For it always stands defender
Of the Orange and the Black
lt's had noble teams in baseball,
In basket ball and track,
All their glories we're recalling,
How soon they all come back! A
It has won the honored medal,
Of the famous Northwest Pack,
And it plays the good old football
'Neath the Orange and the Black
Tho the passing years shall part us,
And we roam in foreign lands,
Our hearts shall be together,
Tho we are on different strands.
We shall miss the good old High School
And old friends we shall lack,
But we'll cheer our Alma Mater,
And the Orange and the Black.

AT THE TECH IN 1927-28
With an approximate enrollment of 670 the Tech started the school year of l927-28
on September 7. The freshman class headed the list with 2l2 members, 87 boys and 125
girls. The seniors had I29 members, the girls outnumbering the boys 76 to 53, the juniors
came second with l53 enrolled, 65 boys and 93 girls, the sophomores had nearly an equal
distribution of boys and girls, 94 to 90, giving a total enrollment of 299 boys and 384 girls.
During the summer, the Tech athletic field was enlarged to include a regulation
football field and four tennis courts. A retaining wall was erected on the east side and the
fence was extended around the north end. The tennis courts were made possible by funds
received for that purpose from the senior classes of l925, I926 and I927.
The approach to the entrance of the building was greatly improved by the construc-
tion of a flight of wide steps opposite the main entrance. These concrete steps, eleven in
number, are flanked by stuccoed retaining walls, capped with a broad cement coping. At-
tractive flower urns, the gift of the Tech's faithful friend, Mr. Clustaf Liljedahl, were placed
on the coping at each end.
The curriculum for the year remained unchanged.
A definitely organized program in extra curricular activities is a vital part of the school
curriculum. As an incentive to general participation, credit by points is given to the pupil
according to his degree of activity in the major and minor groups. Major activities include
the School Newspaper, the School Annual, Clee Clubs, Orchestra, Library, Football and
Basket Ball, Debate, Declamation, and Dramatics. The minor activities are Baseball,
Track, Swimming, Tennis, Clirls Athletics, Chorus, and Special Clubs.
Through a program of personnel work, a very earnest attempt is made to help the
individual plan his high-school courses toward a definite end, and to point out vocations
that he may reasonably follow. '

SENIOR CLASS OF 1928
May each of you enjoy a long, happy, and useful life. May your mind and body
rejoice at having tasted the essence of weariness from purposeful, worthwhile work, filling
your heart with happiness in a personal consciousness of your ability to resist the strains
of turmoil and adversity.
"Work without hope draws nectar in a sieve,
And hope without an object cannot live."

Poetry is the expression of the soul.
ln this, our book, we aim to give expr we hold most dear
among our high school memories. It is a d measure. There
is the rhyme that tells of new friends ni 5 trueg the steady,
even beat of class routine, and the battle 1 rd our teams on to
victory or defeat, but always cheeringg and t .... Q gay, lilting melody
of fun and pleasure that the Tech has given to us, its students.
We are about to leave the Tech for fields where the poems may be only battle hymnsg
we have been taught to sing thefn, yet we have learned that there are other poems. These
will be our inspiration as we go on in life.

l-low The Class Of l928 Earned Their Diplomas
Once upon a time in the year l924, and during the administration of President Cool-
idge, a new people emigrated from the land of the Grade Schools to the promised kingdom
of Tech High. When they arrived in this territory, they stood very much in awe of the
ruler, King Paul R. Spencer, and his Prime Minister, Lady Elizabeth Clark, fyou see,
even in those times there was woman suffrage, my childrenlj
- Nevertheless these aliens were greatly inspired by the fact that each year the sub-
jects of this kingdom advanced to a higher station in life. It seemed to them that such
opportunities as this land afforded could not be overlooked so they organized themselves
into a band known to the other subjects as "The Freshman Class." They chose as their
leaders three of the stout-hearted group, Carl Erickson, Crayce Axell, and Genevieve Barr.
At first this band was looked down upon by the other Techites. l-lowever, they showed
their determination to gain higher ranks and titles, as time went on, they not only accom-
plished well the tasks imposed upon them by the Royal Attendants but assisted ably in
affairs of honor for the kingdom, namely athletics, forensics, music, and dramatics.
As a token of their appreciation and as a welcome to the Freshman class, the Sopho-
mores entertained most regally, in honor of this band at a Freshman F rolic to which all the
subjects were invited.
Finally at the end of the year King Spencer at the recommendation of Prime Minis-
ter Clark. bestowed the title of Sophomore Class upon these Freshman people as a reward
for their labor and loyal support of the kingdom. -
After a brief vacation in foreign lands the Sophomores returned and found a new
ruler had ascended the throne of superintendency, King Robert H. Brown. They took
up their work with light hearts and appointed Lester Rose, Donald Binnie, and Irene John-
son as counsellors.
It was this year that they, remembering how they had enjoyed the friendly frolic
prepared in their honor the year before, gave one for the newcomers who were following
in their footsteps. Again the Sophomores were well represented in all activities of the king-
dom that were open to them as lower subjects.
Spring came and once more the friendly band parted to travel the various highways
of leisure or labor. Returning the following autumn as Juniors, another step higher up,
they revelled in their recently acquired privilege, that of dining at the banquet-board be-
fore under-brothers. Oh, and who does not rejoice at being served first after long and
wearisome toil? It was not only as epicures that these people of rank excelled-indeed
not! They distinguished themselves in other fields-Irene Trieschel was eminent in debate
and declamation, Mark Doane, Ted Ahles, Lester Rose, and Alva Torrey were well to the
fore in both football and basket ball, the sports most favorably looked upon in the kindgdom.
Baseball and track also had their aspirants from among the valiant juniors. Various clubs
organized for the support and glory of the kingdom coveted such active members as Dorothy
Kilbourne, Helen Smith, Jeanette Cross, Florence MacDonald, Carl Erickson, and Irene
johnson in their number.
Near the end of the year a most brilliant affair was prepared which was called the
junior Ball. There was much beauty. All the ladies of the land came attired in the most
gorgeous court gowns in their possession, and all of the ladies with their lords danced in
the midst of an old-fashioned flower garden.
+ 'YECHOGS '
When they made their departure from the kingdom that spring, it was with a little
more hesitation and regret than in former years. ,They realized that only a few short
months would remain to them after their return as Seniors.
Now as the most honored subjects and the leaders of the land-Seniors, they had
attained the position dreamed of as Freshmen.
Before attempting any great feats they chose their leaders Helen Smith, Lester Rose,
and Genevieve Barr. And then the great football games were played. Mark Doane
captained the mighty eleven which broke the state record. After that came basket ball
games with Alva Torrey as Head Man of the team that won the district tournament. Donald
Binnie won the greatest favor in this kingdom and also in other kingdoms for his declama-
tion, and Irene Treischel, Carl Erickson, and Irving Whitney proved to be fluent debaters.
All the events of importance in the domain of Tech High were heralded to the public by
the Tech of which Eugene O'Connor was Editor-in-Chief, and by the Techoes edited by
As in former years there was much rivalry among the ladies as they prepared for the
Finally when all was finished, Seniors, attired in gray caps and gowns, received their
diplomas, bid farewell to King Brown and Prime Minister Clark, turned their backs on
their beloved kingdom, and faced the world in which they would search for success.
Jeanette Cross '28
Everybody carries with him
Something that will mold his life
ln grief or happiness.
It is this which helps determine
Who our friends shall beg
It is this which helps to make us
The kind of friend we'll be.
If this something is much stronger,
Wide will be our path of lifeg
But if it should be the weaker,
Harder is our life-long plight.
Be it hard to mix with people,
Or through life's dull curtain see,
Let this something be our passport:
It is personality. -

for the year l927. Each year by vote of the student body and the faculty one boy and one
girl are chosen as representative students of the Tech. The election is based on the follow-
ing points, honesty, character, service to the school, and scholarship.
Public commendation of good school citizenship was started at the Tech in l923.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
The Student Council is composed of thirty one student members, each one elected
by a home room group, and two faculty members appointed by the principal.
To bring matters of all-school concern before the home room group and to pro-
mote, in all ways, the best interests of the school are the purposes of this organization.
This year the Student Council has arranged for and managed the sale of the Student
Activity Tickets, has sponsored several pep meetings including the Homecoming meeting,
gave an all-school Christmas party, and put on several movies.
The Student Council is now in its fifth year at the Tech. Each year it has done
more and more toward uniting the student body in carrying on many worthwhile projects.

SIGMA SIGMA CHI
Character, service, scholarship, and leadership, the key-words of the National I-lonor
Society, are the basis for election to membership in Sigma Sigma Chi, the local chapter
at the Tech.
A faculty council selects members for this organization from the upper fourth of
the Junior and senior classes each semester Only four members of the Chapter which
was organized last year returned to school to carry on the work during I927 28 At the

GIRLS ADVISORY BOARD
The Cirls Advisory Board was organized in the spring of l927 to act as big sisters '
to the incoming freshmen and to all out-of-town girls. This group of sixteen junior and
senior girls were hostesses at a "Get-Acquainted Team early in the fall. New members
are chosen in the spring by the Board and must be approved by their adviser, who is the I
Dean of Girls.
A feature of the club is the monthly luncheon meeting at which the girls carry on a T
round table discussion of some social condition at the Tech.
The Girls Advisory Board brought Miss Elizabeth Mitchell to speak to the high
school girls on her recent trip to the Orient. The Board also assisted Superintendent and
Mrs. R. I-l. Brown in the giving of an all-faculty tea before the Christmas holidays.
Plans are being made at the present time for an old-fashioned ice cream social to be ,
given on the high school grounds in May.
Five junior and six sophomore girls have been selected for membership and will be
initiated at a special meeting in May. i
Definite plans are being made by the Board to better serve the "new ones" at the
Tech next year.

TECH RANKS THIRD AS SUCCESSFUL YEAR CLOSES
TECH RATES THIRD AT
THE PRESS CONVENTION
Receiving several high ratings and
an office in the association were the honors
Carl Erickson and Thelma Graven were
privileged to carry back to the Tech Stali'
after the annual convention of the M. H.
S. P. A. This gathering was held Novem-
ber 4 and 5 at the John Marshall High
School of Minneapolis.
Thelma Graven, a Tech junior and
associate editor of the Tech was elected to
the office of treasurer of the association.
The Tech paper placed third in Class
B, which is made up of high schools with
600-1000 enrollment. Albert Lea High
School won first place, with its publication,
A sports story by Carl Erickson was
awarded first place, and a news story
written by LaVerle Mulligan was given
first honorable mention.
The convention was made most help-
ful to the delegates by its round table dis-
cussions and its lectures by prominent
journalists. Each publication was criti-
cized, and the faults were discovered as
well as good features praised.
Florence MacDonald was a third
delegate, representing both the Tech Stafi'
and the Techoes.
REPORTERS SHA TTER
"Slaml Bang! Whack!" Oh, how
penetrating were the sensations the neo-
phytes underwent as carved shingles came
into personal contact with bodies of new
reporters, and their knees palpitated in
perpetual motion at the annual Tech Staff
initiation, January 9. The victims were
very properly attired "backwardly" in
their c othes, and caused many a glass eye
to crack because of the weird sight.
After marching prisoner style they were
forced to choke down enormous portions
of buns, salad, cocoa, ice cream, and wafers,
with handles of forks. Several silver-
tongued orators made their first public
appearance as they delivered after-dinner
The editor then cruelly forced the
"cubs" to admit their pitiful state of ig-

administered the oath of office.

FIRST TECH ISSUED
OF MR. C. F. SCHROPP
Great was the surprise experienced
by students of the Tech when, one morning
in 1917, the instructor of printing, Mr. C.
F. Schropp, and his classes published as
their project a newspaper called "The
Tech". This publication was only one
page, nine inches by five inches, and re-
corded in its rather limited space the school
affairs for a portion of the semester. The
students so appreciated this undertaking
that soon it became an established custom,
and appeared at least once a month.
When, in 1917 it was decided to en-
large The Tech, a new policy was introduced
which helped to cover the cost of publica-
tion. This was the plan of commercial
newspapers, that of printing ads. This
new idea was developed by Miss Elizabeth
Clark and Jack Coates, a sophomore. At
that time the paoer was printed at the
office of the "Sauk ,Rapids Sentinel."
In the year of 1918 Miss Eunice Smith
organized the Tech Staff, but it was not
until 1924 that a class in journalism was
formed by Miss Marjorie Sawyer, English
teacher. At the present time Miss Eveline
Broderick conducts the class between the
hours of 10 and 11. This class corrects
stories of other reporters, rewrites articles,
writes original stories, and heads.
Much credit is deserved by the mem-
bers of Mr. Chapman's printing classes for
their assistance in "setting-up" heads and
editorials. They likewise hr-lped with the
make-up of advertisements.
PRAISES TECH WORK
"The Tech is the best paper of its kind
in the state," is the opinion of Mr. Harold
Schoelkopf, city editor of the Daily Times,
who urges that it be made a weekly pub-
lication. This place is deserved, he be-
lieves, when judged on the basis of what it
contains. and how it is compiled and pub-
lished. The fact that it is printed in the
Tech print shop and that the staff solicits
its own ads is the outstanding feature that
gives it such a high rating. Mr. Schoel-
kolf also was very much pleased and inter-
ested iri the practical experience and educa-
tional facilities of the Tech Staff work. He
feels that it gives the student a practical
experience in the field of journalism.
EUGENE 0'CONNOR WITH
STAFF AID ISSUES PAPER
Eugene O'Connor was editor-in-chief
of-The Tech during 1927-28, and Carl
Erickson served as managin editor.
Thelma Graven and Adolph Ngesenberg,
associates, worked in the editorial and
printing departments respectively.
At the beginning of school a series
of elimination try-outs were conducted
when twelve new reporters joined the staff,
which included, Mary Bach, Eleanor Four-
net, Jeanne Hunter, Mary Gans, Gladys
Harrell, David Granahan, Thelma Graven,
Jeanette Gross, Eileen Hanson, Corrinne

Middlebrook, Warren Goehrs, and Warren
Circulation was managed by Donald
Binnie and Vernon Anderson.
All typing was done by Helen Smith,
Mildred Jung, and Ethel Anderson.
Misses Eveline Broderick, June Cry-
sler, and Georgia Scott and Mr. C. S.
Chapman served as faculty advisers.
THE TECH ISSUES TWO
The Tech this year made two very
popular extra editions, one at Home com-
ingtin November and one later in April, a
November 4, Home coming day, thc
Tech appeared printed on orange paper.
There were several cuts which would be of
interest to the alumni, to whom the edition
was dedicated. This paper marked the
beginning of a series of interviews with
early settlers of St. Cloud, the column be-
ing called "Pioneer Reminisences."
In April the junior class issued its an-
nual publication of The Tech. The junior
class staff which was appointed included,
Thelma Graven, editor-in-chiefg associates,
Natalie Hoyt and Mary Bach: sports
editor, Henry Hansen. The members of
the junior class did all writing of stories
and make-up work, and the journalism
class wrote the heads.
The reporters for the junior issue were
Mary Bach, Eleanor Fournet, Thelma
Graven, Natalie Hoyt, LaVerIe Mulligan,
Harriet Nelson, Eleanor Niskern, John
Swan, Evelyn Wadhams, Henry Hansen,
Eunice Nelson, and Vera Walters.

I ' The Masquers is an organization made up of junior and senior students. The mem-
bers are chosen because of their ability and interest in all phases of play production, such
as stage carpentry, stage lighting, costuming, and acting. The tryouts are held early in
September. The Masquers are going to present two more one-act plays in addition to the
contest play. The Club purchased a set of Hats and other scenery which will be used in
the Senior Play.
Miss Mary Anderson and Mr. L. C. Ramsland, as advisers of the Masquers have
had charge of all dramatic work at the Tech. Each member of the Masquers assisted in
some production during the year. Valuable cooperation by the Art, Woodworking, and
Clothing Departments made possible some very effective stage work. The throne scene of
"Rollo's Wild Oat" was the culmination of many pupil's efforts. The striking arrangement
and color scheme used for "The Goal" received favorable comment from the critic judge.
Adolph Mesenberg, Warren McQueen, and Daniel Schwab have been capable and
dependable stage hands. Dorothy Kilbourne was an efficient seamstress. Natalie Hoyt
and Jeanette Gross served as costume mistresses and property managers.

One of the most colorful and picturesque class plays ever presented at the Tech
was Monsieur Beaucaire, the choice of the class of '27 with Arline Nussbaum as Lady Mary
and Donald Bohmer as Beaucaire.
As an artistic production the play was a pronounced success from the viewpoint of
acting, costuming, and staging.

The older C-irls Clee Club has shown its ability several times this year. This group
appeared at the C. M. E. A. meeting at the Teachers College, at a Washington School
Mothers Club, and at the Christmas Community Sing. An auditorium program was spon-
sored by the group just before Christmas, and they assisted in the Christmas Cantata.
When the Kiwanis Club visited the school, the organization rendered several songs.
A library system has been arranged by which a different girl is appointed librarian
each six weeks period. Her duty is to take charge of the music sheets.
The Cilee Club will enter the music contest in the spring with "Lift Thine Eyes"
by Mendelssohn and "Happy Song" by Pike. Harriet Sharpless a member of the club will
enter as a piano soloist with "Romance in D Flat" by Sibilius. l-lazelle Koertner will enter
the district contest with the soprano solo "Wake Up" by Phillips.
A group from this organization is serving as a nucleus for the Chanting Chorus which
is singing for the senior class play.

musical organization in the school. The club has taken part in various social events, in-
cluding singing at the Washington Community Club, the Parent-Teachers Association,and
the Christmas Cantata. They are working hard at present on the selection "Duna" in
preparation for the district musical contest. Besides this number by lVlcCill they are
preparing the "Gypsy Wind" by Woolver. ln last year's music contest, the boys ranked
first in the district and so entered the state contest.
The Boys C-lee Club is a valuable addition to the Chanting Chorus for the Chinese
play, "Princess Turandotf'
The boys meet daily in regular school time for practice. The range of voices is farily
good with bass and tenor about equal and the baritones stronger.
A great deal of the effectiveness of the glee club work is due to the accompanist,

Under the leadership of Miss Jessie Smith and Mr. Theodore Steinmetz, the orchestra
appeared several times in important programs. In March a vaudeville act was given,
which included dancing, music, and dramatic readings. Music for the Fargo-Tech game
was furnished by the orchestra.
At the annual G. A. A. Circus the club maintained a booth at which the customers
might have portraits painted.
This year the orchestra had an unusual variety of instruments of all types. There
were over thirty members.
Several members will enter the state music contest as soloists, as well as in the orches-
tra as a unit. Thus far Fred Schofield is the only entrant. He will play a clarinet solo,
"Conzonetta" by Godard. The selections which the orchestra will play are "Minature'

The main function of La Clique Francaise is to give the members an opportunity
to make use of the language they have learned. The club started its activities this year
by an initiation of the newly accepted members, and a truly French banquet. The little
programs given at the monthly meetings are quite beneficial. Roll call is responded to in
French in some unique manner. Short plays, readings, and descriptive talks on French
customs, people, famous historical characters, books, music, and, in fact, anything that
deals with life in France make up the programs. These are prepared by the members
and given in French.
A very important and successful undertaking was the production of a play "La
Surprise d' lsidore" in the French language. The club also sold French Christmas cards
which added to this year's success.
With the proceeds from the play the club bought a picture for the French room.
It is a print of the Seine showing Notre Dame in the distance.

LIBRARY CADET CLUB
The Library Cadet Club. under the ,supervision of Miss Ledahl, school librarian,
is composed of students who are or who have formerly been assistant librarians.
Each year the club puts on one good, educational movie having some literary value.
This year's production was "The Old Curiosity Shop" by Dickens.
The proceeds from this movie are to be used in buying some permanent possession
of decorative nature for the library.
The club meets every Monday to discuss problems relative to the library. Such
as making the library more attractive, the better use of books, the kind of books for
a school library, have come up for discussion.
Arrangement of books on shelves and their grouping has been given attention.
The group is planning a banquet as the social meeting for the last semester this year.

The Paint Box is a group of students organized this year to further artistic interests
at the Tech. The membership is limited to twenty boys and girls who have had one year
of art and maintain a "B" average in the work. Meetings are held on alternate Wednesday
evenings in the Art room. At the present time, the group is busy planning the scenery
to be used for the Senior Play. Because of this work additional meetings have been held
each week. The designing of curtains and the painting and designing of the more exacting
pieces of scenery has taken the time of the individual members. Each meeting closes with
a short social hour. A

l-IEC TEC CLUB
One of the most active and popular groups of this school is the l-lec Tec Club made
up of junior and senior girls who have proved by their work that they have some knowledge
o' home economics.
A business meeting and a social meeting are held each month.
The club conducts pie sales, candy sales, and hot-dog sales and assists at the foot-
ball and basket ball banquets. '
This year a very successful bazaar was held before the Christmas holidays at which
home made candy and Christmas gifts made by the girls found a ready sale. A silver tea
was given by the club on the same afternoon.
This year the I-lec Tec Club affiliated with the National Home Economic Associa-
tion and each member now wears the pin of the national organization. New members
will be elected in the spring and will be entertained at an "Initiation Picnic" before school

any of the homemaking courses. The members are elected into the organization.
This year the girls sold "St, Cloud" buttons and also hot-dogs at the games, and as-
sisted in giving a silver tea and bazaar. The group plans to rearrange the fitting room
for the sewing classes. As their first project they will select and make curtains forthe room.
They have already purchased a small attractive table and a magazine rack.

To foster high ideals, to initiate and promote school spirit, to show visiting students
and teams good times, to make for better cooperation between the student body and the
faculty, in fact, to make Tech High a bigger and better institution in all respects is the aim
of the Peppy Techs.
The Peppy Tech Club is an honorary organization of ten senior boys who have dis-
tinguished themselves at the Tech. Members for the following year must each be unani-
mously elected by the present club.
For Homecoming this group of boys took active charge of decorating the field and
entertaining the alumni at a dance. During the winter holidays the Peppy Techs held
their annual banquet at the Breen Hotel.
To the juniors, winners of boys' class basket ball the Peppy Techs presented a trophy.
Each year they give a medal to that student who has shown himself to be best all-round
school citizen. Earl Gerard received this honor in l927.

Twelve Neucleatical Techites is the name of this club composed of twelve senior
girls. The members, selected by a unanimous vote of the preceding club, are those who show
prospects of being representative seniors.
The purpose of the organization is to arouse more interest in the activities of the
school and to promote school spirit.
This year the club was very active in all preparations for Homecoming and acted
as hostesses at the Alumni Tea on that occasion. They have given two pep fests, a tea
after the regional debate, and have been active in other school programs.
Alumni members are welcome at the meetings which are held twice a month. After
the business meeting an informal discussion of student problems follows. These help the
group to carry on their program of a "better Tech".
Plans for the spring include a picnic for old grads and the taking in of new members.

When he first came to St. Cloud from Grinnell, Iowa, in 1925 to undertake the work
of athletic coach in the high school, Guy H. Nichols won the confidence of all St. Cloud
athletic enthusiasts. Because of his pleasing personality and his directness in dealing with
the boys he won the confidence and respect of the teams which he coached.
Throughout his years at the Tech Mr. Nichols has not only shown the sport fans that
he is a great coach, but he has also aroused in the boys that quality of cooperation and in-
dependence to carry on work whether he is with them or not. He has through persistent
effort and hard work made great teams out of what is termed "no material."
Mr. Nichols has won a place in the hearts of the entire student body and faculty
for the interest which he takes in every activity. It is with good humor and intensive
work that he builds powerful athletic teams and instills in them good sportsmanship and
enthusiasm. All success to him in years to come!
l 92 7 Football
With sixty-one pros-
pective gridders appearing
for the first practice ses-
sion, outlook for the l927
football season was con-
siderably brightened. Of
this number there were
only four lettermen a-
round whom Coach Nic-
hols could build his machine.
VERNON MILLER Captain-Elect
Captain Mark Doane, Alva Torrey, Ted Ahles, and Lester
Rose were the only veterans on the squad. An extremely strong wealth of material was
available in the reserves, however.
To develop his charges more thoroughly, Coach Nichols held spring football practice
previous to the regular fall grind. This proved very satisfactory in selecting the 1927 team.
Although hampered by intensively hot weather in the early days of practice last
fall, a desirable lineup of men was shaped in time for the first encounter with Foley on
September 23, a comparatively early date.
Captain Mark Doane-"l'm sure that if the men play as good football as they are
capable of, the I928 team will be a good one."
Captain-Elect Vernon Miller-"Every able-bodied fellow ought to come out, and
if they do we'll have a real team."
Throughout the entire season a versatile squad of men was kept busy, but at game
time it was usually the old reliables starting. Those whose names fall under this group
are in the backfield, Captain Mark Doane, Alfred Hendrickson, Norman Wyvell, and
Donald Daubanton. The line from end to end started in this manner: Lester Rose,
Alva Torrey, R a y m o n d
Michaels, Carl Erickson,
Giertz Petersen, Vernon
Miller, and Ted Ahles.
Special mention must be
given Winston Welsh, Roy
Stelzig, John Bensen, David
Granahan, and Edward Hein-
zel for their ability to act
superbly in the replacements.
Going through the
octave without a defeat is the
measure of the aggregation
which Coach Nichols whip-
ped into shape for the Tech-
ALVA TORREY nical High School.

Opening its season Sep-
tember 23 against a stranger
on Tech football schedules,
the Tigers won from Foley
I8 to 0, at St. Cloud. A com-
paratively well rounded Tech
team performed remarkably in
the hot weather which ham-
pered superior play. The first
half found the Techs leading

ly benefiting from the intermission, the Tigers came back in the last half to clinch the vic-
tory with two more touchdowns.
LITCI-IFIELD 0-TECH 32
St. Cloud's next opponent fell by the wayside with a 32-0 knock-out blow. It was
Litchfield who appeared here in the second home game of the season on October l. Pre-
senting a somewhat stronger team than in former years, Litchfield forced the Tech to exert
itself strongly to assert its power. The Tigers, however, displayed fine football in turning
the victory. They played a much improved brand of football compared to the initial tilt.
WILLMAR 6-TECI-I 20
Tech met its first difficult opponent at Willmar on Friday, October 7. Willmar
started a march to the goal which would have been reached in the very early moments of
the game had not Hendrickson, Tech halfback, scooped up a Willmar fumble and raced
for the first score of the game. That took the Willmar team off its balance, and Tech rode
to its 2lst straight victory on a score of 20 to 6.
LITTLE FALLS 0-TECH 46
Playing its easiest game
of the year, Tech romped to a
46-0 score at Little Falls,
October l4. With Captain
Mark Doane and Alva Torrey
out of the lineup because of
injuries, Coach Nichols gave
experience to a few reserves:
and they did well. At no time
in the game did the Falls team
threaten to score-due partly
to Ted Ahles' superior defen-

Displaying its most
ragged exhibition of foot-
ball during the season,
Tech managed to eke
a I5 to 6 win at Monte-
video, October 2I. The
first four minutes of the
game were great with
Tech marching straight
down the lot for the first
RAYMOND MICHEALS touchdown. The hot NORMAN WYVELL
Guard weather worked to hinder Halfbafk
a snappy game, and from then on Tech was in danger of a defeatg but the game ended
I5-6 after Tech scored two touchdowns and one safety.
STILLWATER I3fTECI-I I3
Fifteen seconds to play!
Figuratively speaking, the game had been won: the score stood I3 to 7 in favor of
St. Cloud: but an intercepted pass scored the touchdown that made Stillwater famous
for breaking the great string of victories without ties which the Tech possessed. Aside
from that one misplay, the Techs displayed the greatest form of the year. Stillwater was
leading at the half 7-Og but Tech came back to get the I3 to 7 lead, only to be tied by a break
of the game, which truly was a kind adapted more to fiction than to reality. It was a moral
ALEXANDRIA 0fTECI-I 33
Alexandria presented the opposition for the first home game in four weeks. Tech
smeared the Alex crew quite handily in the Homecoming battle with a 33 to 0 score. Be-
tween the members of the backficld there was a division of the scoring, all of the ball carriers
figuring in the counting. A large crowd witnessed the battle between the ancient enemies.

For nine of the regulars, the 30-0 win over Staples in the finale of the season, brought
to a fitting close their high school football careers. Those nine football stars not to return
next year are Captain Mark Doane, Lester Rose, Alva Torrey, Carl Erickson, Ted Ahles,
Giertz Petersen, Raymond Michaels, Donald Daubanton, and Norman Wyvell.
The game as it was played presented no difhcult situations for the Tech, as Staples
had a comparatively green team. Many substitutions were made to find material for next
year. It can be truthfully said that these nine men ended their careers in a blaze of glory-
that blaze kindled by Staples.

To develop material for the Tech varsity football elevens, a regular schedule is carried
out by the reserve squad. Each year the Tech second team books games with surrounding
small towns for the benefit of deriving knowledge of football that will be necessary for Hrst
team membership. Underclassmen comprise practically the whole reserve team. Of the
seven games played this year four were won, two were lost, and one tied. Mr. A. D. Nelson
was in charge of the coaching of the reserve squad.
Opening the season with an impressive 6-0 win over Sauk Rapids, the reserves put
their abilities before the fans. Sauk Rapids is always a formidable enemy for the reserves.
The seconds continued their wins with a victory over Paynesville. They won handily
ln meeting Sauk Rapids the second time, the reserves were defeated 6-0 in a battle
that was waged throughout with neither team having any decided superiority.
On the Holdingford field, October Zl, a scoreless tie was played. Neither team was
particularly strong as the score might indicate: several penalties on the Techs prevented
Opening up a barrage of end runs, passes, line bucks, or whatnot, the reserves cap-
tured a 71-0 runaway from Monticello in the first encounter between the two teams. The
game was on the Tech field.
The following week found the Techs at Monticello. Although compiling a smaller
score, the reserves amassed 39 points to win.
Melrose proved to be the stumbling block in the reserves making a glorious finish.
At Melrose the reserves lost a 6-0 game that was anybody's the whole way through. But
they ended a season that was entirely successful from all viewpoints.
The following men composed the reserve outfit: Eugene Rengel, Malcolm Doane,
Glen Anderson, Raymond Shoebottom, John Schirber, Elliot Armstrong, Rolland Shield,
Harold Powelson, Ralph Huston, David Cranahan, Virgil Chirhart, Henry Carlson, LaVerne
Bauley, Sylvester Reinardy, Lloyd Halstrom, and Edmund Kramps.
Spring football, a newly instituted practice routine was staged with great success
this year. With 38 men answering the first clarion note issued by Coach Nichols, a likely
looking group of footballers appeared. Spring football was tried most successfully last
year, and it is a good way of sounding out material for the fall team.
Besides Captain Vernon Miller and Al Hendrickson as lettermen, there are numerous
huskies who can be depended upon to produce wins. I-leading this list are Winston Welsh,
Roy Stelzig, Lloyd Halstrom, Eugene Rengel, Rolland Shield, Henry Carlson, Mac Doane,
and Edward Heinzel. Most of these men showed their worth on the reserve team this year.
The fundamentals of football are drilled on with the greatest care with scrimmages
in vogue at times. The spring training will last until May 4. Much benefit is derived
from these practices for it enables the coaches to estimate the strength of their charges.

Having played basket ball which at times was of bright hued colors and at other
times not so bright, the Tech cagers emerged from a regular schedule of I2 games, a good
basket ball team. Continuing basket ball, the Tigers played through the district tourna-
ment winning the championship title game with Sauk Rapids. Being beaten by Appleton
20-I9 in the first region game, the Techs were eliminated from further running. Five
games were won and seven lost of the regular schedule.
With Captain Alva Torrey and Mark Doane the only veterans, Coach Guy Nichols
had to draw upon his last year's reserve material, Rose, Halstrom, Mac Doane, Ahles, and
Erickson. Daubanton was a new man on the Tech squad this year.
EXCELSIOR 2I-ST. CLOUD I7
Coach Guy Nichols secured for his first opponent Excelsior, the runnerup in the l927
state tourney. Excelsior won from the Techs in an overtime period 2l-l7. The allotted
time ended at I7 all, but in the additional period the rangier men from the south scored
two goals to cop the contest. With Captain Torrey playing a sturdy game at guard, and
Carl Erickson leading scoring, the remainder of the team played great ball for an initial
BRAINERD 29-ST. CLOUD 8
Receiving one of the worst defeats a Tech team ever suffered, the Tigers were humi-
liated 29-8 by a fast Brainerd team, january 6. In this game the Techs were decidedly off
color and thereby the result. At no time during the tilt did the Techs display any semblance
of good basket ball.
BUFFALO I7-ST. CLOUD 26
At Buffalo January I3, the Tigers came crashing through with their first scalp. In
defeating the Bisons 27-l7, Tech unearthed its actual ability as a team. This win boosted
spirits in the Tiger camp for the time being. Halstrom scored half of his team's points to
be leading man.
WILLMAR 30-ST. CLOUD I0
ln meeting one of the strongest teams in the state, the Techsters suffered a 30-I0
submission at the hands of Willmar. Played on the Willmar court, the game presented
certain difficulties forthe Nicholsmen. Willmar's team was of the finest calibre yet seen
in Central-Minnesota circles. Ted Ahles, substitute guard played the best game for the
LITTLE FALLS I7-ST. CLOUD ZI
Having experienced enough deterrments, the Tech men aspired to gain a win, and
they got it from the ancient enemy, Little Falls 2l-l7. The game was played on the armory
floor. The score quite deceives the actual difference of the two teams. St. Cloud had a
much larger advantage than the count would indicate. Tech play was not entirely polished,
however: and Little Falls had a fighting team. Torrey and Doane played good defensive
games for the Tech. -

ALEXANDRIA I2-ST. CLOUD I8
Two wins in a row resulted when the Tigers won an I8-I2 game from Alexandria
January 27. Rough play featured the game at Alex, but disregarding that point both teams
exhibited unusual form with the Tigers having the edge at all times. Halstrom was again
the big point getter.
WILLMAR 34-ST. CLOUD I3
Another one of those serious drubbings came around February 3 when the old ancient,
Willmar, took a 34-I3 verdict. This 'game was played at St. Cloud. Here again did the
Scandinavians prove their stuff as basket ball players. They had the charge and drive
that is characteristic of a great team. At no time in the contest did Tech have a look in,
but they went down to defeat in a fighting mood. It must be said that Willmar was de-
BEMIDJI 23-ST. CLOUD 22 A
A game featured by not a single foul being called on Bemidji resulted in a 23-22
loss for the Techs in the first game of their road trip. The game was played February IO.
With the score I6-8 against them at the half, the Tigers came back to within a nigh
win. St. Cloud outscored the Bemidji cagers from the field, but free throws spelled defeat.
The entire Tech team worked in unison with no one man carrying off big honors.
BRAINERD 28-ST. CLOUD I6
The second game in two days was lost to Brainerd 28-I6. I-lampered by a restricted
area on which to play basket ball, the Tigers found difficulty in registering their shots. A
well played floor game, nevertheless, by Brainerd proved enough to beat the Techs.
LITTLE FALLS I9-ST. CLOUD 27
ln the second encounter with Little Falls, a better Tech team won 27-I9. The game
was played Tuesday, February I4, and was one of the best pieces of work done by the

Before the contest was over, Halstrom, Doane, and Daubanton had been ejected on fouls.
Don Daubanton played a whale of a game at center.

The annual F argo-Tech battle resulted in a win for the North Dakotans 25-I6.
The school which boasts a runnerup in the national tourney had stiff opposition in the Tech
Regardless of the defeat, Tech played its best game to date. The passing game

BUFFALO I6-ST. CLOUD 29
As the curtain dropper of the regular schedule, the game with Buffalo at St. Cloud
resulted in a 29-I6 win for the Techites. Buffalo failed to live up to its reputation, while
the Techs were going big enough to cop any contest. Captain Torrey, Daubanton, and
Doane led the assault on the fighting Bisons.
THE DISTRICT TOURNAMENT
Entering the twelfth district tournament as favorites the Techs came through with
the first championship a Tech team has had since the regional system was established.
Throughout the entire tourney the Tech aggregation showed the perservence and endurence
of a tournament team.
To qualify for the semi-final play, Brooten, departmental champs, had to be beaten.
The Techs came through on the skin of their teeth in a 26-24 battle that looked as though
it might be won by Brooten. Decidedly poor basket shooting by the Tech accounted for
the close score. Lester Rose rose to great heights when, as substitute he pulled the game
out of the fire with his Il points.
The semi-final game was played Saturday morning, March 3, with Maple Lake.
This game fell easily to the Techs in a 28-ll score.
The final game played with Sauk Rapids, one of the best seen on the armory floor,
ended with a 22-I4 count.
Mark Doane and Donald Daubanton were awarded guard and center positions on
the honor all-district five. Captain Alva Torrey was presented the district championship
THE REGIONAL TOURNAMENT
The first Tech team in four years to travel beyond the district made a remarkable
showing at the Alexandria meet. Four teams were entered: Appleton, Brainerd, Glen-
wood, and St. Cloud.
ln the first game St. Cloud played Appleton, a contender in the semi-finals of the state
tournament last year and winner of the regional honors. The most remarkable showing
of this Tech team, and it would have been a splendid showing for any team, was registered
in the game played with Appleton. Techs were eliminated 20-I9.
After running the score to I2-3 in the first quarter the Tigers lagged and Appleton
came to a i3-I0 score at the half. In the second half, Appleton showed great form. A
half minute before the end of the game the score stood I9-I9, but a foul called on the Techs
proved the disastrous element.
The consolation game was won by Glenwood 24-I6. In the final game of the meet
Brainerd was defeated by Appleton in a pretty game that ended 25-20.
Playing I74 games throughout the season, the Techmen won eight and lost nine.
As district champions the Tech team had the distinction of being the first St. Cloud outfit
to enter the regional tournament.

RESERVE BASKET BALL
Realizing that to have a strong varsity team weathered material must be abundant,
the coaching staff of the Tech arranged a regular schedule of games for the reserve team.
Each year the coaches depend upon the second team to yield some members for the next
Winning only three games during the season, the reserves were rather in a slump
throughout. Wins were garnered from Big Lake, All-stars, and Belgrade.
The men who played on the reserve team were Elliot Armstrong, John Benson, Joe
Tessari, Gene Rengel, Edward Heinzel, Marlin Peterson, and Clemens Rosemark.
At Big Lake the Tech reserves had no trouble in subduing the Lake team under a
20-2 score. The Reserves showed flashes of basket ball characteristic of first team perfor-
Led by Rolland Shield and Eugene Rengel, the Reserves made a sweeping win of
their first game.
On January 20, the Reserves journeyed to Cold Spring to take a severe beating.
The score was 35-I4 for the Springers. Bell, for Cold Spring, squirmed his way through
the Tech defense to score at will. Again Shield and Rengel put up the best game for the
' YECHOES '
As a preliminary for the Tech-Little Falls battle January 24, the reserves lost a 26-I7
game to Foley. Displaying a markedly strong defense, the Reserves were, however, lacking
in offensive power. The score at the half was tied at I4 all.
With Lester Rose and Mac Doane of the first squad playing for the Reserves the team
put up a great battle.
At Foley the following Friday another defeat was charged against the understudies.
Foley won the second game 43-l8. Playing without the services of Lester Rose and Mac
Doane, the Reserves suffered a much more humiliating defeat than in the previous contest.
Armstrong and Rengel scored all of Techs points, but the defense game was poorly played
by the entire team.
In the return game with Cold Spring on the armory floor February 3, the Techs
were again defeated. This time with a smaller margin, the score was I7-4. Armstrong
tallied the' only field goal for the Techs, the other two points having been made on free throws.
His guarding game was of fine calibre. Gene Rengel at forward also was a big gun in the
attack of the Nelson machine.
Playing one of Paynesville's strongest teams in years, the Reserves lost their tilt
43-l3 on the Paynesville court February l0. Repeatedly did the Techs shower the back-
boards with shots, but none connected. The defensive game was poorly played for Paynes-
ville's forwards had no difficulty in slipping in for baskets.
Staging somewhat of a comeback in this second game with Paynesville the seconds
lost by a 2l-I2 count. The St. Cloud team displayed much better basket ball than in the
first meeting of the team. Joe Tessari, a newcomer on the Tech squad displayed remark-
able form in the second encounter with Paynesville.
An All-Star class team composed of veteran men of the class teams of the Tech were
donors of the second win to the Tech Reserves. The seconds won the game 2l-7. The
size of the armory floor hampered the class players. Swedelius, G. Anderson, V. Anderson,
Huston, Slaney, Lee, Benzon, Skinner, Pung, and Stelzig composed the All-Star squad.
Playing a fill-in game in the departmental tourney at the Tech February 25, the Re-
serves romped over Belgrade 37-5. No competition whatever was afforded the Tech team.
They did not, however, remain in the running for the championship. Mac Doane, Lester
Rose, and Gene Rengel looked best for the Reserve team. Doane and Rose, however, were
members of the first team squad.
' 'YECHOGS '
CLASS BASKET BALL
The junior class won the annual class basket ball tournament held during the current
season. Each class was represented by two teams, "A" and HB". Both teams played
games with its division in every other class and the standings of any one class were deter-
mined by the accomplishments of both teams.
During the year each class played I7 games. At the close of the regular schedule
a tie was found to exist between the juniors and seniors. Two more games were played
but still a tie remained. A final game was played and the total number of points garnered
by the "A" and "B" teams determined the champs. The juniors totaled 42, the seniors 39.
The sophomores and freshmen ended in a tie for third honors.
The members of the junior teams are, of the "AH: Loren Wolter, Byron Schram,
Rolland Shield, Donald Fung, Glen Anderson, Roy Stelzig, and Winston Welsh: of the "B"
Lawrence Larson, LaVerne Bauley, Rolland Willenbring, Alois Yaeger, Clarence Gruber,
and Melvin Christian.
The Peppy Tech trophy symbolic of class basket ball championship was awarded
to the junior class. Glen Anderson accepted the trophy. This is the first year it has been
given, but it is to be an established custom that to the team winning it for three consecutive
years, it will be awarded as a permanent possession.
This was the first year that tennis tournaments were held at the Tech. The boys
who entered the tournament were paired for the first tilt, and elimination games were played
until two remained for the finals, Howard Luther and Vernon Anderson. Howard was
champion by virtue of winning two sets out of three. Another tennis meet is to be held
in the spring of the year. Mr. L. C. Ramsland has charge of boy's tennis.
Tennis at the Tech has taken on the proportionality of a major sport among the
students, and if the Athletic Board of Control deems it advisable those worthy of recogni-
tion in the sport will be awarded letters.
Especially during the spring months has tennis flourished at the Tech. Inter-school
competition was provided for both doubles and singles. The result of the regular school
tournament and the outcome of the various inter-school contests were not available at the
time of publication.
Varsity baseball was supplanted by class baseball at the Tech this spring, because
it was felt that there was not enough interest to have the regular school team. It was,
however, decided that if enough enthusiasm was shown a varsity team would be organized.
Captain Les Rose anxious to perpetuate the game of baseball at the Tech was the
leader of the senior nine. Alva Torrey and Donald Daubanton were the only other letter-
men among the seniors. Harry Fowler was chosen as junior class manager. Another
letterman of last year, Eugene Rengel, again was ready to don uniform and manage the
sophomore team. Elliot Armstrong was freshman manager.

Opening the season against Elk River at St. Cloud April 22, the Techs suffered a
l0-6 defeat. ln the very first frame of the tilt Captain Fred Williams clouted out a four
bagger, but Elk River plugged steadily and won.
ln a practice game with St. ,Iohn's University, the Techs lost their second game of
the season 7-3.
ln its third trial of the season the Tech nine pleaded guilty to manslaughter but
won the verdict by a I3-0 decision over Monticello on the Tech field April 29. Bohmer and
Rengel performed well on the mound for the Techs.
With Don Bohmer making records as a high school pitcher in hurling a no-hit no-run
game, the Tech baseball added another victory to the string with an 8-0 win over Melrose,
At Elk River on May I0 the Tech team lost 7-l in a loosely played game.
St. Cloud won its next game from Monticello May l6. Monticello was decidedly
weak and the Techs had no trouble in annexing a 5-I win.
Melrose provided another feast when the Techs won l5-4 in the next to the last game
The final game, played with the Tech faculty, went to a draw after darkness came on.
The game ended in the ninth inning 7-7 with the varsity having quite the edge.
The season ended then with four wins, three losses, and one tie, but Coach A. D.
Nelson knew that his team wasn't the worst in its line.

The state meet was held at the University of Minnesota lVlay Zl with the Tech
making a creditable showing.
The final event of the season was the invitational meet at Hutchinson May 26.
The Tech team placed seventh out of nine entries,
The class track meet was won by the sophomore class with Hendrickson doing
the major part of the work. The juniors finished second, seniors third, and freshmen last.
Hendrickson was high point man for the entire meet.
As the track aspirants for this spring's session groomed themselves, they had in mind
the four big events of the season. A schedule similar to last year's was drawn up by Coach
Nichols with the Hamline Relays, May 5, Hutchinson Triangular, May l2, State meet,
May l9, and the Hutchinson Invitation, May 26.

The hiking season opened in September with a ''get-acquainted-weiner-roast," at
the "Rocks," on the banks of the Mississippi. A list of the various ways of earning points
for membership into the Girls Athletic Association was read. One point is earned for
every four miles of hiking. A
During the year various other hikes were taken by means of which many girls earned
The hikes are organized by the C.A.A., but all girls in the school are invited and even
urged to join them. A-
A great deal of interest was shown in tennis, an entirely new sport at the Tech. We
are now enjoying four new tennis courts, a gift of the class of I927.
Classes offering instruction in tennis were held after school, and anyone interested
could attend. Miss Margaret Stewart explained the general fundamentals of tennis and
helped girls with their individual problems.
A tournament in singles was played off with eighteen girls entered.
Eleanor Niskern, Caroline Smith, Vivian Barker, and Margaret Weber reached
Caroline Smith and Margaret Weber played off the finals, which Caroline won. The
set scores were 6-2 and 6-3.
Basket ball practice started, this year, directly after Thanksgiving vacation. Each
class elected a manager, whose duty it was to keep a record of all the girls out for practice,
and the individuaI's attendance. V
A new method for playing the class tournaments, was started this year. This was
to have every class team play every other class team, making a total of six games instead
of the usual three. The class having the greatest number of victories won.
The first game of the season was forfeited by the sophomores to the freshmen. On
January 26 the seniors won the second game from the Juniors with a score of 30 to 24.
The next game was between the seniors and freshman. Although the seniors fought
hard, the freshmen carried the score, I8 to I3.
The seniors played the sophomores winning with the score I4 to 9.
In the freshman-junior game, the score was 24 to I6, in favor of the juniors.
The juniors also won from the sophomores by a score of I9 to I2.
This resulted in a tie as the freshman, juniors, and seniors, had the same number of
victories to their credit. By using a "bye" the tie was played off with the seniors as victors.
This entitled the seniors to the silver loving cup which is presented each year by the G. A. A.
to the team winning the tournament. Last year the freshman class won the cup.
Miss Clara Anderson and Mr. George Peterson refereed the games.

There was considerable interest shown in life saving tests.
TRACK AND BASEBALL l927
Although there was very good material for baseball teams, no inter-class tournaments
were played, because of lack of playing space.
The class of '29 won the track meet which was held on Play Day. Evelyn Hendrick-
son, '29, came within a few inches of the world's record in high jumping.
G. A. A. BANQUET
Announcement of the "all-star" team by Miss Margaret Stewart was the most im-
portant event at the second annual G. A. A. banquet held March 7 at 5:30 at the Tech.
The referees found it diflicult to select an all-star team because of the wealth of material.
This team is made up of the following: forwards, Ellen Peterson, senior, Florence Marshall,
freshman, Evelyn Hendrickson, junior, jumping forward, and guards, Helen Cidmark,
senior, Madge Patterson, juniorg Katherine Gruber, sophomore.
An interesting program followed: Nell Nichols gave a reading "jimmy The Un-
afraidf' Madge Patterson gave "A Real Lady" and Dorothy Harrell gave "Joyce Gets
Ready For Sunday School." Florence DesMarais sang "My Blue Heaven" and little
Daniel Kiklas sang two songs. Between courses several class yells were given and many
clever songs sung.
Dorothy Putnam, the C. A. A. basket ball manager gave a short talk compliment-
ing the teams on their good sportsmanship. Madge Patterson, captain of the junior team,
gave a talk on the same subject from a good sportsman's point of view. Clara Anderson,
'27, spoke briefly and lead the cheering. A yell was given for the boys' basket ball team,
which was to play in the regional tournament the next day.
G. A. A. CARNIVAL
On Saturday evening March I7 the C. A. A. sponsored its annual carnival. The
gym was lined with booths conducted by the various clubs.
A treasure hunt, bowling alley, beauty parlor, family album, picture gallery, and The

' AMONG MY SOUVENIRS
When I consider how I spent my time
While I was going to school,
I wish that I could relive the rhyme
That's found in the golden rule.
I remember now, how I used to recite
When the teacher called on me.
I always said what I thought was right,
And I always got a HD".
I never got credit for what I did
Or at least, that's what I thought,
The teacher treated me like a kid,
And whipped me when I talked.
As I recall those happy days,
I see where I made a mistake.
I realize now why she mended my ways
In an attempt to control my fate. l
Now, as these things come back to me,
I find I have no fears
Of placing these thoughts with memories,
Among My Souvenirs.
THE SPIRIT OF I928
With Helen Smith as pilot,
Of the Spirit of '28,
Carrying nigh l30 passengers,
And a great deal o' heavy freight,
No wind nor stormy weather,
Could stop that sturdy crate.
There was Mark, the par'chute jumper,
Who, with his football team,
,lumped over all State records,
And made them look sort o' lean.
The ballast of the ship was Carl,
The best I 've ever seen.
From debate to dramatics swinging,
With an energetic will,
Was Irene Treischel, acrobat,
Who never could stay still.
And all were piped to victory
By the nimble-Hngered Mil.
Yes, Helen was the pilot,
And Les was ready too,
As assistant pilots always are,
Alert, their share to do,
While Gen, with pen and paper,
Kept track of all the crew.
Mac propelled the Techoes,
A book most wondrous great,
If you've forgotten when it happened,
Look there and find the date.
The bills-well, Daniel 'paid them,
And got us discounts-all first rate.
Oh, it wasn't all clear sailing,
There were tailspins and many a drop:
But ambition and will to do
Nosed the plane up, on up, to the top.
Till now, with all records broken, .
The Spirit of '28 comes to a stop.

f 'YECHOES '
DAY OF EXAIVIS
'Twas the day of exams and all thru the school
Not an object was stirring-not even the pool.
The students were seated at study intact,
ln hope that the test would be mostly fact.
The pupils were waiting all set for the strain
While visions of flunking arose in their brains.
When out in the hall arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the door I ran like a flash
Threw wide the portals and made for a dash,
The light from the windows upon the stair
Illumined the objects ascending there.
And what to my tired eyes did appear
But the eleven o'c!ock lunch line advancing nearg
With a Hip of my head and a dancing eye
I knew that the eating time was nigh.
More rapid than eagles, the eaters they Hew
Whistling and shouting and calling Yoo-Hoo!
Hey, Gen! hey, Helen! hi Cully and Les!
On, Edith! On, Jean! on, Cay and the rest!
To the head of the stairs, to the lunch room door
They clamoured, they pranced, they fell to the floor.
As dry leaves before the autumn winds fly,
They fluttered and blinked with a hungry,eye.
Up to the counter they wended their way,
With a rattling tray and a giggle so gay.
Then in a twinkling, their trays, they were filled
With many a victual, hot and chilled.
Upon the counter they put pennies rare
Running down the hall with an eye to their fare.
Down they did sit, their food to devour,
With an eye to the clock for the forthcoming hour.
Their eyes, how they dilated, their lips how they shook,
And every fair brow was drawn up in a frown
As they took a last look, their efforts to crown.
With a sigh of anxiety, and a heart heavy as lead
They awaited their fate with exceeding dread.
They spoke to each other with hope to review
The important points most probably due,
Then taking their trays they hastily rose
And hurried down stairs without powdering a nose.
They entered the room of their prospective exam.
Seated themselves, threw their books with a slam,
As the tests were passed out and working began,
The excitement abated while each problem they did scan
When all was finished with a sigh of relief,
They sat and moaned and nursed their grief.
But Hurrah! report cards now have vanquished all fears
And they ended the year with a chorus of cheers.

Now ne'er guilty of misdemeanors-
Were helpless little infants all,
Each so shy, and each so small.
Many may not believe it, so
Here some evidence we'll show,
So that one may not believe
That we are trying to deceive.

THE MODERN HAMLET
To do, or not to do,Hthat is the questiong
Whether 'tis easier for me to avoid these contracts
Or to take wits against this sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To shirkg to put off,
No moreg and by shirking to say we end
The work and long hours a scholarly
Student is heir to. 'Tis a privilege
Devoutly to be wished for. To shirkg to put offg
To put offg perchance never to do, ay, there's the rub.
For on that fatal day of report cards what marks may come
When we have shuffled off the enclosing envelop,
Must give us pause. There's the respect
That makes study of so long life,
For who would bear the symbols and formulas of chemistry,
The graphs of economics, the themes of English,
The maps of London, and the speeches of public,
When he might his ease and comfort make
With mere procrastination? Why would students bear
To sweat and study under a weary life,
But that the fear of something after marks,
Those unknown quantities from whose disappointment
No student is exempt, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather study than trust
To the mercy of the markers, who have none?
Thus marks make cowards of us allg
And the sacred wish for an easy life
Is sicklied o'er with the slight glimpse of a contract,
And moments of great joy and revelry
With these regards are thwarted,
And lose the name of bliss.

The Principal's secretary, Ruth by name.
ls noted at Tech as one of fame.
Up and doing every day
She charms us all with her cheerful way.
Work is her diet, at typing and hle,
And she flies about with a genuine smile.
She calls to the office both sinner and saint
And listens each day to many a complaint,
Be that as it may, all Techites will raise
To Ruth Peterson the glad hand of praise.
Doane Cheese Pill Co.
l must thank you for your marvelous compound which has brought boundless joy
and contentment into our home.
I am fond of toasted cheese sandwiches, which my husband, who at one time ate
too many, detests. Now I sprinkle several of your cheese pills on the sandwich and he can't
distinguish cheese from lettuce or date fillings.
Mrs. Horace Hollmeyer.
The Blotter-Retentive: absorbs a great deal.
The Desk-Receptiveg likes to be leaned upon.
The Typewriter-Extremely versatile: can write a wrong, or wrong a write.
The Scissors-Very cutting: ever willing to separate by sheer force.
The Paste Jar-Persistent: perseveringg possesses the faculty of sticking to things.
The Pen-Likes to be held: makes very pointed remarks.
The Waste Basket-Frequently gets full and has to be carried out: fond of scraps.
The Calendar-Always up to dateg often takes a month off.
The Master Key-Of a probing natureg fits any lock.
Tardy Bell-Carrying commanding voiceg not popular among freshman.

Your next year will be a greater strife
And we grant you'll have success in life
If you follow this advice!

Then do it!
Hitch your wagon to a star
Keep your seat, and there you are
Only, stick to ir!

5 1 The ideal of service has never been more nobly exemplified than by Jennie Lynch. For a full half cen-
Q tury she taught in one school in New York City.
2 To her perseverance, patience, kindliness and honor, and to her keen sense of duty, thousands of her
Q pupils who have grown into mature life, owe to her a debt of gratitude which they will never be able to pay.
Z Serving others, whether it may be in the school room, in the great professions or behind the counter. and
Q doing it just a little better day by day, is always worthy the best that is in us. g
