The line that marches on with silver cry That ages past, that future days will ring In ears of men, while hopes in man still sing. To plant the wheat that bread may fill the bowls, And hyacinths, that men may feed their souls. To depose Folly and make Wisdom King, To build anew that which shall never dieg Pity and peace, And War's surcease, Friendship's bond and love's increase, This be our pledge, this our farewell cry. -Leona La France fDardanian 1 ,Seniors juniors .-91m-.m,1.m4....nunl l ?2l ws. 0 0 O C eu:'Q'6 0 Q 0 0 1.m1m.1m,,..m.-my1m,-.W1 1 11-. .-.mg-.m..m QYCISSQS I 'Z' 1 1 I 4 Sophomofres qreshmen I9 fDardanian 28 Senior Glass ,Salutatory O our parents, our teachers and our friends, the Class of 1928 gg extends a cordial welcome. Today we close behind us another of the gates through which We all must pass. It is the gate of Youth. Tomorrow we shall join the throng of those who are striving to reach that evasive goal, success. Some of us, perhaps, will grasp the goal and shout, "I have conquered!" And we, their classmates shall rejoice with them. A few will sink, unable to combat the forces set against them. But, today, we all are conquerors and it is but right that our teachers. who have patiently suffered our shortcomings, that our parents who have willingly sacrificed that we might continue our preparation for life, and that our friends who have always encouraged and supported us, should share with us the pleasure of this day. We Wish to express to you our gratitude for the faith you have placed in us and extend to you, once more, our welcome. "R Fourteen L9 Tardanian 28 Glass ,Song Music and words by Bertha Hyde I.

If success in business depends upon quietness and efficiency, Ethel certainly will be a great asset to the Business world. Much luck, Ethel. ROBERT ANDERSONg 2357 Sixth Avenueg School 5. Classicalg Undecidedg L. C. F. "Bohn Anderson is our "beloved rogue." Though Bob has a slight tendency to procrastin- ate, his striking personality and his talent outweighs it. We anticipate our '5rogue's" success. 141. Cicero 131, Hi-Y 141. WILLIAM ARAMg 192 Tenth Streetg School 14. Classicalg Undecidedg Hi-Y 121, Circus, Manager Baseball, Basketball 141. "Billy" Aram represents spirit and enthusiasm to all of us. Now and then our young "bantam" shows a little "Grew when obstructed in his work. but one is generally sp'rited when one has "s irit." We need more like 'SBill ." P Y EDWARD APPLE:, 171 Second Streetg School 10. Academicg Undecidedg Band 11. 2. 3, 41g Orchestra 11, 2, 3, 43. lndustry, vitality and sociability are but a few of '6Ed's" good qualities. His sociabilily makes him well known, but his many acquaintances would like to know him better. for every- one desires to be acquainted with talent such as "Ed" possesses. AGNES BAINQ 316 Fourth Streetg St. Mary's School. Commerciulg Undecided. Agnes is the girl who simply couldnit decide whether her chestnut tresses should be long or shorn. But we see she has had them clipped. We always see Agnes friendly and sweet. It seems that trouble never comes her way. Eighteen IQ 6Dardanian 28 GRACE BAUER CARL BECK FLORENCE BEEKER WILLIAM BENNETT HELEN BOYNE GRACE BAUER, Averill Parkg Dist. No. 7 School. Classical, New Paltz Normal. Cicero 135. We certainly hope that this writeup will not be S'beastly" or 'sperfectly horriblef, Even though those are her pet words, Grace is very generous, and her good nature wins her many friends. CARL BECK: Sand Lakeg Sand Lake No. 8 School. Classical, Undecided. Web 13, 433 Cross Country 12, 3, 47, Tau 13, 41, Track 13, 45. Carl has always been a conscientious, enthusiastic worker. In extra-curricular work, he has always centered his ambitions around a few activities and has always proved a success. FLORENCE BEEKERQ West Sand Lake, Sand Lake No. 4 School. Home Economicg Undecided. Glee Club 13, 41. Florence is so very quiet that we had to look up her registration room to find out if she really were in school. However, there are many nice things said about quiet people, and we're sure that Florence deserves all of them. Don't be too quiet all your life, Florence, for we shall like to hear from you often.

Bill is a very popular fellow. especially with the girls. Another asset of Bill's is his unconcerned air which has gotten him out of many a scrape. HELEN BOYNE, 440 Tenth Streetg School 1. Home Economics, Samaritan Hospital. Inglenook 12, 3, 4-lg Art Club 143. Helen is one of the nicest girls we know, but she is so quiet that very few people really know her. She's bubbling over with fun, friendliness, and good-comradeship. We wish her the best of luck. Nineteen IQ 'Dardanian 28 t i I THELMA BRAND KATHERINE BREWER NETTIE BROWN MARGARET BULGER GRACE BURKE THELMA BRANDg 107 First Streetg School 10. Commercialg Undecided. Senior Circus. Another girl of whom we hear very little, but when one is acquainted with Thelma. she is heard often. Her heart is over-Howing with generosity and a gentle word for everyone. KATHERINE BREWERg 171 Oakwood Avenueg School 1. Classicalg State College for Teachers. Glee Club Isl, 2, 3Pg Tri-Y 1433 Cicero, Sec. l3ig L. C. F. fflbg "Purple Parrot" 4419 Dardanian Boardg June Hop Committee 43lg Debate 133g Senior Dance Committee. "Katy" is our all-around girl. Ready for work. ready for fun, and ready for companion- ship, she has been very prominent in class affairs. We hope that Katy's capability will always he with her. NETTIE BROWNg 131 River Streetg School 10. Commercialg Undecided. Gregg 13, 43. Nettie is another quiet member, but the saying "Still water runs deep." applies to her perfectly, for she is an exceptionally good student. Besides her scholastic ability, Nettie is friendly and capable. and everyone who knows her will admit her ability for anything she may undertake. MARGARET BULGERg 86 Albany Ave., Green lslandg School 1. Classiculg State Col- lege for Teachers. lt is evident that Margaret has devoted so much time to her studies that she has found it impossible to enter extra-curricular activities. Good luck. Margaret. GRACE BURKEQ 577 First Streetg School 12. Classicalg Slate College for Teachers. '6Phi1" 143g Cicero 133g Gregg 121. Although Grace is not the noisiest of girls, neither is she the quietest-but she is the uhappy medium." She has an abundance of common sense, cheer and charm, which charac- teristics go to make one of the best girls of '28.

With such a strong foundation. he cannot fail to achieve a bright future. ARLENE CHAMBERSQ 13 Frear Avenue: School 1. Commercialg Undecided. Gregg. Treas. 141g Senior Circus. Arlene's another commercial prize. We've high ambitions for our Arlene. Reserved. un- assuming and jolly., Arlene is one of our 'Lnice" girls. MARY CHAMBERS3 13 Frear Avenueg School 1. Home Economicsg Undecided. Inglenook 131g Art Cub 141g Senior Circus. One girl of the Senior Class who is seen and not heard. What would have happened at the Circus without Mary's needle and thread? We predict that many will receive the most tender care in her patient charge. GEORGE CHOQUETTEg 323 First Streetg St. Jean de Baptiste School. Academicg Undecided. George is a quiet fellow who does not take a very active interest in his classmates. ALTIE CORCORANg 413 Ninth Streetg School l. Classicalg State College for Teachers. "Phil" 13, 43: Tri-Y 141g Glee Club 141g L. C. F. 143. When Alt'e laughs. everyone else has to stop and laugh with her. We are glad that some- one can make us laugh at something we know nothing about. What would happen to Vergil class were it not for Altie and 309 at noon? Twenty-one IQ 'Dardanian 28 .1 A.

The fact Illilt 5'Dent" is enthusiastic will make him successful in future enterprises, while his conserva- tive manner will aid him greatly in making friends. LESLIE CURTHOYSQ 40 Sheridan Avenueg School 12. Cicero 133g L. C. F. 1415 "Web" 14lg Senior Executive Committee. Leslie is a quiet, brilliant, light-headed 1tow-headed! youth, who seems to be Martha's rival in Mr. Kru,-:is room. ELMER CURTINQ 2 Curley Avenue, School 16. Commercialg Undecided.

Irene is one of those girls who looks so peaceful and quiet in class that her real jollity is never suspected. But, get her at noon hour or after school, and her quietness has all disappeared. We hope Irene will always keep her ability to laugh. Twenty-two IQ fDardanian 28 EDWARD DENISON NORVILLE DOWNIE HAZEL DUNHAM THERON EMANATION SAMUEL ERICKSON EDWARD DENISONQ Lathams, N. Y.g Lathams District 10. Industrial Artg Undecided. Edward takes things as they come and shows little outward feeling. "Ed" merely smiles calmly at the situation he is confronted with and devises a plan to deal with it. His calm nature is admired by all of us. NORVILLE DOWNIEg 33 Campbell Avenue: School 12. Classicalg Undecided. Cicero 131. Norville is bound to be a success in life because of his diligence and vitality in work. He is trustworthy, energetic and to most of us, reserved. Nevertheless, to his intimate friends, Norville expresses himself. HAZEL DUNHAM, Cropseyville. Classicalg Barnard College. L. C. F. 1453 Glee Club 12, 3, 41. Hazel is known throughout T. H. S. for her marked aptitude for giggling. Nothing is too subtle to call forth a smothered "Heel Heeli' from her. But our "Zami" is not always giggling. She knows how and when to he serious, and uses her knowledge to great advantage. Here's luck, Hazel. THERON EMANATIONQ 221 10th Streetg School 14. Academicg Undecided. Tau 1413 Bus Committee, Hi-Y 13, 413 Pi 143g Football 13, 41. "Andy" is a very popular fellow. This helps to make him one of the best ticket sellers in the class. "Andy', is congenial and one of Troy Highis social stars. SAMUEL ERICKSONQ 183 Congress Street: School 5. Industrial Artsg Undecided. Sam possesses such a peaceful, humorous smile, and such self-restraint that he is envied. His self-restraint, however, makes one think that he is tacit, but "Sam" is just the opposite of taciturnity.

"Bill" has been one of the leaders of his class. "Bill" is interested in everything. although he ikes a certain young lady best. Bill's headwork has been quite useful, in lots of ways. Impromptu Oral 'LComps,, are his best achievements. while typing is next in order. H's otlter accomplishments are too numerous to mention. IOLA M. FILEQ Cropseyvilleg Dist. No. 4 School. Home Economics, Undecided. We would not know she were around, were it not for her physical presence in the class- room. Probably she thinks "Silence is golden."

RUTH F0055 Watervliet Arsenalg Leavenworth High School. Classicalg Vassar. Tri-Y 13, 433 Cicero 133g Delphic 143g Senior Circusg "Purple Parrotw 143, Valedictorian. "Rufus" is never daunted by anything 1Chemistry includedl, and because of her fear- less spirit, exuberant jolliness, and straight thinking, has won for herself an abundance of true friends and good marks.

Outside of ornamental talent, Ada possesses many more attractions: a lovely voice. an attractive manner ,and the gift of dispelling gloom. We hope she will have the same cheery influence in the world outside. HELEN FREDENBURGHQ West Sand Lakeg Dist. No. 4 School. Commercialg Unde- cided. Glee Club 1433 Gregg 13, 43, "Phil" 143. The Senior Class is overflowing with quiet girls, and in Helen we find another onc. Shc is a blond' with large blue eyes. Like all the Fredenburghs, she is a singer. lt is difficult to discover her thoughts, for she keeps them to herself. FLORENCE GABAUERg 19 Kinloch Avenue, School 16. Classical, State College for Teachers. L. C. F., Vice-Pres. 1433 Cicero 133g Debate 1433 Senior Circus. All the adjectives in Webster's Unabridged Dictionary could not express the real worth of our Florence. so it can readily be seen what difficulties mere classmates are up against. A brilliant student, a hard worker, and a loyal friend, Florence has won, and always will hold, the love and respect of her friends of '28.

Sweet and mannerly: quiet, yet congenial. This is only a sketch of our "Lottie.,, We are sure that she would be a true friend. GRACE GOETZQ 116 Maple Avenueg School 16. Classical: Undecided. "Phil" 444. L. C. F. 444. Grace looks very quiet here, and that is very unusual. because Grace loves to talk and have a good time. Everyone likes Grace and that is not strange, for she is a good friend. When Grace goes to college, we hope that she will be as well liked as she was in high school. MILDRED GRAVESg Lathamsg School 10. Home Economics, State Normal. Ingle- nook 43, 44. Glee Club 434. Mildred is another "silent partner". However. underneath all her quietness, is a love of fun and a capacity for friendship. If Mil's prophecy comes true, we wish her the best of success and patients. SHIRLEY BLANCHE GREENBERGQ 118 First Slreetg Manchester Center High School. Commercial, Undecided. We hear very little of Shirley. She seems to like her own company better than anyone's else.

John has the hearty wishes and cooperation of numerous friends in any enterprise he make undertake. JOHN HAWLEYg 1590 Broadway, Watervlietq District 7. Academicg Udecided.

In other words, we were admitted to the beloved portals of that great X ' institution of learning, Troy High School. Harsh, indeed, is the life of a freshman. We were ushered unceremoniously into regu- lar sessions. To add to our sorrows the crafty sophomores harassed us mercilessly in every conceivable manner. We sought vainly for the library on the fourth floor, we spent small fortunes buying reserved seats for the assembly and cafeteria, we were forced to submit to the humilia- tion of the annual soph-frosh rush. fWe still claim victory in, that struggle.J But such genius as our class contained could not be restrained. Gradually we found our way out of the mist which had enveloped us during the first few weeks and settled down to the routine of high school life. For a whole year we applied ourselves more or less diligently to our books, and took little part in extra-curricular activities. June arrived, as usual, and we staggered through the much dreaded examinations. The next September, now fully recuperated from the strain of the previous year, we appeared, a smaller but surely a more intelligent group, on the second step. Since the desire for revenge seems to be innate in human nature, and this desire was not lacking in our class, wel humbled the lowly freshmen to our heart's content. Soon after school opened we elected our class oflicers. We chose Jack Spain for President, Martha Young for Vice President, Richard Prendergast, Secretary, and Leonard Rosenthal, Treasurer. This year found many members of the class taking an active part in school affairs. The faces of many of our classmates were seen on the athletic teams, in the various societies, in the drama club, the orchestra and the band. One of our classmates, Harold Saperstein, obtained the distinction of Winning second place in the school oratorical contest. The great dramatic sensation of the year was presented by a sopho- more English class. This modern version of "The Merchant of Venice" made dramatic history in dear old Troy High School. Later in the year the class of 1928 scored another success. This time with a motion picture, depicting the struggles, hardships and ultimate triumph of our dear friend, Oliver Twist. 1. ' ' Fifty-three Y .. IQ 'Dardanian 28 We thought that by this time we were old enough and wise enough to choose our class colors. Therefore an assembly was called and several combinations of colors were presented. After a few days of heated argument a vote was taken and our colors became purple and white by the great majority of one. As the year neared its close the athletic warriors of the basketball season received their numerals. June' had approached again without warning and we were forced to scrawl on examination papers the result of two years of good, bad, or indifferent work. -WILLIAM BENNETT .ill- THIRD AND FOURTH YEARS We took our third Step and we were up in the world, for had we not attained a place of honor in the upper regions and were we not "high and mighty juniors"'? We acknowledged our high rank by immediate action. We called for election of officers and in answer had William Bennett, President, Martha Young, Vice Presidentg Bryant Kirkendall, Secretary, and Robert Campaigne, Treasurer. With these noble oflicers to lead us, We began our successful third year. We soon decided that as sophisticated sophomores we had been a little too wise in selecting for our class colors, purple and white, and after much discussion and little agreeing, we decided that the glorious blue and white should do the honors. It was not long before many of our members, both boys and girls, credited themselves as being great athletes. As to scholastic abilities, we were honored that two of our classmates, Harry Hollins and Lawrence Patrie, starred in the Oratorical Contest. And, in the debating team, we were "It," for the honorables, Martha Young, Harry Hollins, John Halli- gan and Henry Ott composed, we dare not say better half, but we will say half of said team. Then as we neared the completion of our third step came the eventful June Hop, where with the cheery colors of red and white, we juniors cer- tainly gave the seniors a very nice dance-even they said it was nice. - Having fearfully, but successfully, survived our exams, we were allowed to ascend to our fourth step. We stood there a little awed and yet delighted, for we had really become seniors. As such we began the Fifty-four .7 I9 'Dardanian 28 all-important process of elimination to select our ofiicers, with the result that John Halligan, Presidentg Martha Young, Vice President, Bryant Kirkendall, Secretary, and Elmer Curtin, Treasurer, became our leaders. A To say the least, we were original as was proven by our "homemade circus," where everyone enjoyed the fat lady, the clowns, the pink lemon- ade and the hot dogs, while the steady inflow of nickles and dimes greatly enlarged ourdepleted purse. The faculty saved us the trouble of the annual Frolic by prohibiting that event, but we, being original and incidentally in financial need, decided to give an Easter Dance. We did, with the result a social and financial success. Once more we proved ourselves unusual by the successful publication of a school paper, the well-known "Purple Parrot." We participated in the scholastic events of debating and oratory and had a prominent part in the unusually victorious basketball seasong while a further remarkable accomplishment was the making of a "bigger and better" Dardanian, finer than that of any other year. C?J ' With these many events crowding our time, June crept upon us all too soon and we realized that we were about to complete our fourth and last step. As that month drew to a close we completed that step and arrived on a broad platform. We gazed about and discovered that two paths stretched before us. To the right, was one which led to the business world, to the left, higher education. We realized that those four steps Valedictorian. . . Salutatorian. . . English.. .... Latin ....... French.. .

The two unknown fliers mentioned in last evening's paper have been recognized as one Jack Spain and one Bertha Taylor, who, having been designated in the year 1928 to write the Senior Prophecy, started in that year on a trip around the world to get Atmosphere, Unity, Coherence, and Emphasis. They have been traveling tMiss Nellie M. Casey, Patronessj for fifteen years, looking for a suitable airplane in which to make their trip, and until last week, had not found it. Then, out of a clear sky, came the famous inventor, Ed Weinberg, in his new airplane, looking for a chance to display his masterpiece. The two fliers then began their delayed trip, and completed "Le Tour du Monde" in two days. The machine car- ried with it magnifying and X-ray arrangements, together with radio and telephone connections. The trip has broken the record set by the once- famous Lindbergh last week, who made a similar flight, but required twenty minutes longer to complete it. to the Pirrple Parroit, Troy High School. obit, i lik Q 7 l .

The two fliers have consented to review their trip for these columns, inasmuch as they have seen so many of the Troy High Alumni all around the world. Their own account follows: "Friday morning, just as the sun was peeping over the top of Hoosick Street hill, we climbed into our plane. The pilot started the engine, and the huge machine began to soar higher and higher, missing Mr. Krug's chimney by a bare few inches. Flying low over Hoosick Street, we dis- cerned a red light at Fifth Avenue, but for once in our lives, we did not have to obey the trafiic signals. Waving madly to the cop, whom We knew to be the impressive Billy Aram, we continued our flight over the roof of Cluett's. Our plane then turned southward, and we traveled over the mighty Hudson. Fifty-six.. IQ 'Dardanian 28 "It took only apfew minutes for us to reach New York City. Our great altitude enabled us to hear very plainly many things which, in reality, were far less noisy than others. Above the din of the city, we heard a jerky, yet somewhat methodical, banging, interspersed quite frequently with exclamations whose character forbids their repetition. Gazing through our X-ray machine, we saw that in a large -office building, Bill Farrell was exercising not only his typewriter, but also his remark- able vocabulary. Telephone connections were poor, so we didn't find out whether he was still a reporter, or merely a big business man without a stenog. "Our magnifying apparatus showed us Elmer Curtin counting fifty- cent pieces for a Federal Reserve Bank, Sadie Rosen doing slum Work, and Harry Kentzel doing human fly stunts on a building erected by Loux, Miller, and Hawley, carpenters and electricians. At Coney Island, we could see Marney Vollmer staging marvelous side-shows, and Shirley Greenberg and Nettie Brown promenading on the beach. From our position, we could see, rather vaguely, Caius Hoffman in Paraguay teach- ing advanced mathematics, Mil Hess in Panama, looking for a lost history report, and Grace Burke in Florida, writing musical comedies. We read one in no time, even from our height, and found it nearly as good as "Hamlet" We watched Carl Beck out on a cross-country run from Har- per's Ferry to Tipperary. Then we began our flight across the Atlantic. "At Bermuda We saw Elva Nealon, the mistress of a large onion plantation, enjoying all prosperity. Then, on a small island farther to the south, we beheld Walter Schwebel, the United States Ambassador, negotiating peace with a group of natives who, in all probability, might cook him alive at any moment. Thinking that perhaps we might be of some slight assistance to him, we threw down a grappling hook, and, catching him by the collar, we deposited him safely on a neighboring island, on which We had seen Robert Van Blarcom trying to catch sea gulls by a new method which involved salt and angle worms. He certainly looked the part of a great biologist. On a larger island to the north, we could dimly see Al Lipsky, teaching Eskimo children how to play a saxo- phone while standing on their heads and chewing gum. On the southern shore of Greenland were Pete Makian and George Toomey trying to make an iceberg melt into lemonade, and trying, at the same time, to keep ice in the lemonade. On various other islands were Dot McCabe, doing Green Cross work, Helen Mclsaac teaching Bogart to orphans, and Marge Shea, looking for a handsome husband. 'fAt length we were flying over the mainland of Europe, but from our position we could plainly see Africa, England and Ireland. In Africa, we noticed and unusually large bump in the Sahara Desert, and after having F ifty-seven IQ 'Darclanian 28 connected the magnifying machinery to the X-ray apparatus, we were able to see that the bump was none other than our noble John Halligan, who had found at last a place in the world that was drier than Troy High. There was no one around to argue with, so we thought that he must be lonesome. Accordingly, we sent him a message, asking him all about his life since he had left Troy High, but he cabled back that our message was "out of order." We left him there. In the south of Africa we saw Joe Ryan, looking for a genuine wild man. He had become so interested in them at the Senior Circus in 1928, that he wanted to see a real one. He wouldn't pay any attention at all to us, so we didn't bother him, either. "Turning our machineryy to the north, we saw Len Rosenthal in Ireland, trying to edit a newspaper in French. Florence Gabauer and Ada Fredenburgh were in England, doing suffragette work, and Bea Snyder was in Scotland selling fancy- perfumes. In Denmark, we saw Oz Fish, but we couldn't find out what he was doing. He seemed to be experimenting with a string, a piece of steel, two buttons, and a doughnut. We expected an explosion any minute, but evidently he knew what he was doing. In Norway, we saw Grace Younghans and Thelma Brand running an aviation field for bald-headed soldiers. . "In France, Bill Bennett was running a night club, and Ruth Hubbell was looking for her husband, or at least another one. Ada Howard and Marie Pollock were chorus girls in a musical comedy, and Norville Downie was delivering orations to the French peasants. In Spain we found Char- lotte Gillespie and Marion Costello teaching Greek, while in Portugal was Arlene Chambers conducting a law school. Switzerland had claimed Ida Henderson who was becoming famous for her dancing class for yodelers. Some of her pupils had mastered even the Bowery dance. Choquette and Curley, makers of fine cheese and lace, also attracted our attention. "Focusing our X-ray on Poland, we were more than astounded to see Agnes Bain and Ethel Amadon running a Girl Scout Camp there. Al Streever and Marge Wall were taking part in the Olympic Games as the United States' representatives in the fancy nose-diving contest. Henry Holzhauer was Postmaster-General in Czechoslovakia, and Bertha Hyde was head music-maker to Mussolini in Italy. Stanley Woolman was look- ing for ads on the shores of the Dead Sea, while Ruth Wheeler and Irene De Freest were raising chickens in Ukrania. Irwin Taplin was an insurance agent in Germany, and Sam Erickson owned a chimney estab- lishment in Berlin. In Greece, were Henry Ott, teaching chemistry in the Athens High School, and Margaret Moore teaching Chinese basketball at the same school. Mary Jacobs and Mil Peck were on a tour of the world and we saw them last in Bulgaria. Norma Weir and Caroline Sicley were in the League of Nations, representing Guam and the Philippine Islands. Fifty-eight IQ 'Darclanian 28 "It was rather dark when we were flying over Russia, but by the light of the bombs we could see Anna Yaletchko studying Russian art and Ann Fogarty running a beauty parlor with Walter Wilder as head barber. On a country road was Jack Riley, head of a flourishing cut- flower business. Our plane was now flying in total darkness, and it be- came necessary to use the huge spotlight with which our machine was equipped. The noise of the bombs had died down somewhat and we heard faint music, sounding strangely American to us. Employing our X-ray we saw Helen Lawlor getting married to a Russian Count, with music by Frank Patoka and Co. When the music became inaudible, we heard a loud giggle from the direction of north-eastern Africa. Focusing both our light and our Xeray, we saw Pauline Raymond playing with her pet alligator and ostrich. Evidently Pauline had become a trainer of ferocious beasts. We had always longed to see Turkey, but we doubted that we could do so by night, but our equipment was so efficient that we saw not only the Sultan but also Rosemary Leonard, the Sultan's chief dancer. Ruth Morse, we noticed was the Sultan's head fortune-teller. We were accustomed by now to seeing Troy High students in all walks of life, so we became ever so watchful for the rest of our trip. "We soon found out that Europe had claimed a few more of our old friends. Our light soon picked up a small city in the southeastern portion of Russia, where we located, by means of our X-ray machine, Ed Apple conducting the city's jazz band. It was a hot combination and Ed was brandishing a burning baton. We observed several huge billboards in the same city and being anxious to interpret the printing on them we con- sulted a dictionary we had brought, of the Bulgarian, Italian, and Russian languages, edited by our friend Margaret Bulger. We were overjoyed when we found out that they advertised the appearance of "Happy" Howard Halligan, the Varsity Drag and Shuflle champion of Europe, in the local vaudeville house. We then took a look towards the north, and on the outskirts of the city of Moscow we noticed a caravan of automo- biles. Each car bore a huge sign and, with the aid of our dictionary, we were pleased to read "Elect Robert Anderson sheriff of Vodasko County, and place your government in capable hands." Good old Bob seemed to be the same sort of hustler, we thought. 9 "Our attention was then called to a burning store inside the city walls. Seeing a painted sign over the entrance, we quickly interpreted it to say "Messner and Gibson, Novelty Shop." We were anxious about the plight of our former classmates for a while, but the hard-working firemen allayed our fears by getting the fire under control in quick order. We noticed an ambulance in the vicinity of the Ere, it was standing ready in case of an emergency. We could see a nurse seated in the front, and by close exam- . 4 Fifty-ning IQ "Da'rdanian 28 ination, we recognized her as Mil Graves. Looking far off to our left, we were lucky to locate Dr. Walter Wilson, the leading dentist in the northern hemisphere, lecturing a learned group in the city of Leningrad. Sitting on the rostrum with him was Elisabeth Leibach, the model in Dr. Wilson's tooth paste advertisements, and known the world over as "The girl with the ivory teeth." Farther on we could discern the stormy North Sea. A lonely vessel was cruising its waters. In the main cabin of this vessel we recognized the captain as no other than Ab Walker, the famous tar of our high school days. There seemed to be some confusion in the radio room where the operator was working savagely over the dials and knobs in front of him. Suddenly he stopped and turned around. We did not seem to know him at first but when a smile began to trickle over his mouth, we knew he was good old Bill Wright. Beyond the sea stretched the long Scandinavian Peninsula. Far up in the northern part of this strip of land, we noticed a crowd gathered around two skaters. The pair turned out to be Zina Lewis and Marjorie Herbold, famous Olympic figure- skaters, who were always good skates back in our high school days. In the southern extremity of the peninsula, we noticed a large theatre advertis- ing the appearance of Mary Ryan, the queen of Hollywood, in her latest production. We were glad to see that Mary's acting had carried her fame abroad. Inside the theatre we noticed the imposing figure of Miriam Weaver, who was not of that name now, but rather the proud wife of a Nordic prince whom she had met soon after her high school days ended. By this time our plane was nearing the eastern border of ,Russia. As we passed over the Ural Mountains we were surprised to see a lone hut on the tallest peak. Within the hut was the solitary blond figure of Larry Patrie writing his long promised book, entitled The Truth About Philos- ophy, and My Opinion. He hadn't changed a bit. "We soon left Europe behind us. Continuing over Asia, we noticed the presence of several former friends in a large city of Turkestan. There was a large crowd assembled at a rich looking house. The center of attraction was a pair of dancers who proved to be the famous team of Murray and Morrison. They were executing a series of whirls and swings. Iva was holding the pivot while she twisted Jim around like a semaphor flag. Music was being furnished by the well-known girls' band, McGrath's Merrymakers, with Mary leading. There was Mary Shannon, famcls Victor Record artist, at the pianog Dorothy Pollock, fresh from a concert tour of the New England States, playing the violing Helen Fredenburgh, internationally famous Xylophone soloist, and Eleanora Strohecker, famous southern banjoist. Spotting the Himalaya Mountains directly in our course we marvelled to see three Hgures, Ned Tymeson, Dudley Van Arnam, and John Zimmer on Mt. Everest's summit. What a triumph Sixty , LQ 'Dardanian 28 they had accomplished! The first men to ascend the great peak. They did not seem to be very elated over their success for both Tymeson and Van Arnam were sound asleep while Zimmer was perched on a rock humming "I'm Sitting on Top of the World." The sun was quickly penetrating the early morning mists and soon we put away our giant searchlight. We cast an eye to our rear and in far-off Arabia caught sight of a beautiful castle surrounded by a great domain. On the door of the castle was inscribed the Latin words Dux Feminct QThe woman is the leaderl. Within the castle was a long hall at the end of which was a crowd of several hundred women at the foot of three elevated thrones. Ruth Foos, Martha Young, and Leona LaFrance were seated on these thrones. It dawned on us that we had found the hiding place of these three "Women's Rights Crusaders" who had retired from civilization to found a refuge for Women. Previous to their withdrawal from the world they had startled all nations with their novels and plays that dwelt on the theme of woman's independence. Nearer to us, in an ancient city of Persia, we saw Andy Emanation and Ralph Link, dressed in the garb of Persians. They were dragging a cart full of provisions, evidently for their camp, for we had information before we left that they were searching the whole of Persia for clues to the whereabouts of Ralph's ancient ancestor, Missing Link. There was no more trace of friends in back of us so we continued ahead for the Pacific. As we passed over Siam, we saw below the figure of Denton Crawmer astride a horse. We remembered having read of his lone expedition to find the lost city of Cheza. Our speed was terrific now and in a jiffy we were well out on the Pacific. Looking far south we saw Leslie Curthoys doing missionary work among the natives of Australia. In the Fiji Islands, were two lone figures. They quickly proved to be Dot Uline and Paul Hickey still strolling around making sheep's eyes as they used to do back in old Troy High. The great expanse of water would have been hard to conquer if we had not seen Katy Brewer teaching the Romance lan- guages in the University of Hawaii and Helen Boyne as the head of the large Y. W. C. A. building in Honolulu. The sight of a pair of former classmates away out there redoubled our courage. "As we came to the shores of California, we saw a giant aeroplane set out from San Francisco. We recognized the pilot as Herman Rosen- thal. Jack Parks was seated in the observer's seat. As we came closer Jack climbed out and did some hair-raising tricks on the top of the plane for our benefit. Herman sent us greetings via the radio, as we swept by him like a Hash. We got a hasty glance at San Francisco and saw Eliza- beth Schlegel, the renowned political reformer, at the desk, as Mayor of the great city. In the outlying district of the city was a great mass of buildings marked by a large sign: "Dick Prendergast's School for Boys." ' Sixty-one IQ fDa1danicm 28 Dick had evidently established a school along lines he would have liked his old high school to follow. "Far to the north, in Seattle, we noticed a splendid hotel known as the Corcoran House. Altie had been successful in establishing a chain of hotels in the far west, and this was her latest structure. In the kitchen, we saw the famous chef, John Homan. John turned out to be an imposing figure, with his white mushroom hat and pointed mustache. We saw several old chums in Hollywood. In a tall building on the main street We noticed an office sign, "Hoyt and Vishner, Movie Scenario Writers." Many recent successful productions had been written by this pair, and We were very proud of their friendship. Nearby, was the famous Hollywood Ballet Theatre. Inside, an afternoon rehearsal was being held, and who did we see as the instructor but Betty Oskanian. Betty had started her career in the famous Senior Circus almost fifteen years ago. Outside the city were the picture studios. One especially caught our eye. It was called the "Wood's Comedy Corporation." Jim had at last reached success. Inside the plot they were making a comedy. The nationally-known idol, Wells, was performing before the camera, making one of his million dollar pictures. A little farther on, we saw Bob Campaigne, the austere Judge of the Reno Courts. Since Bob had been on the judiciary board, the repu- tation of this city had suddenly reversed. "Not until we reached Salt Lake City did we catch sight of any more friends. There we saw Iola File practicing law in a large office building. In the same city, Marge Flynn was head of the Freshman Language Department in the University of Utah. There was a huge cylinder out in the center of Great Salt Lake and many pipes were leading to several points along the shore. We surmised that this must be the contraption for taking the salt out of the Water and converting the Water into drinking purposes, invented and installed by Henry De Celle of our own high school class. "We were yet to see one more friend in the person of Maud Wynne, who was an eccentric dancer in the Salt Lake City Vaudeville House. She was enjoying great success. We soon left the west, and increased our altitude to clear the Rocky Mountains. When Well above the moun- tains, we recognized Jack Ide as cartoonist for a national comic magazine in Denver. Looking to the south, we could see the international tennis championship between France and the United States being played on neutral courts in Mexico. Bill Kelly seemed to be ably defending his already five-times-won crown. Soon we were over the city of St. Louis. We could see the deciding game of the St. Louis National-Cleveland Indian World Series. As we passed by, Jack Evers, Cleveland second baseman, was leaving the ground to snare a hot liner from the bat of Bryant Kirken- Sixty-tugo L9 'Dcwdanian 28 dall, St. Louis pitcher, to check a St. Louis rally and win the game and series for Cleveland. In this same city we noticed the advertising of Grace Bauer, the great woman naturalist, who was to lecture this week on "The Origin of Speak-Easiesf' She was to be introduced by Florence Beeker, famed modernist minister of the West. Our eyes roved down the Mississippi as far as New Orleans, where we recognized Mary Chambers directing the laying out of the grounds of her new estate according to the plans of her friend, Marjorie Marshall, who had recently published a book on Landscape and Faire Escape, Settings. Following our eyes up the river, we beheld Art Rosen, the well known Little Rock astronomer, busy in his observatory developing negatives of pictures of celestial bodies. A large gunboat caught our attentiong it was sailing north on the great Father of Waters. Through careful scrutiny we saw Milton Weinstein aboard conducting a rehearsal of his famous Marine Band. They were playing Weinsteins famous march "Here Comes the President." As the music was going on someone shouted out, "Here he comes!" The door of the pilot house opened and a short fat figure stepped out. He 'looked to the right, and to the left, and dofiing his hat, raised his red, smiling face to the sky. We quickly recognized Walter Moloney, the President of the United States. It was our proudest moment of the whole trip when he waved his hat at our plane. He called to a man who hurried out, and when he looked up, we recognized him as Harry Hollins, President Moloney's legal adviser, and present senator from the State of New York. Chicago was the next object of our scouting. Here we saw Grace Goetz, in her office reading the many letters of advice-seekers who patronized her column on advice to the love-lorn. On the main street of Chicago we wondered at the beauty and stateliness of a 48-storied building. C We were surprised to see that it was the building that contained the Chicago Security Trust Company, and that Agnes Maloney was the President. The last 12 floors of the building were turned over to the Helen Mahoney School of Commercial Accounting. Helen had also opened up a corres- pondence department in her school. It was evident that she and Agnes were working in cooperation. Near by was the Chicago Opera House where Hazel Dunham was advertised as the prima donna. She was to sing a leading opera of Oral Swingle's this very night. Both had made their marks as opera singer and composer early in life. We cast a glance to the famous Chicago "tough district" and we were surprised to see Betty Simpson working energetically among the poor of that section. Our speed was reaching its maximum now since we wished to break Colonel Lind- bergh's record, so we quickly reached Cleveland where we noticed the advertisements of Mary Simmons' World Famous Cookies and Doughnuts. Our greatest surprise here was to read of the appearance of Jack "Heart Sixty-three I9 'Dardadian 28 Crusher" Hurd, the modern Shakesperian interpreter, at the Cleveland Theatre all next week. Jack never forgot his love for Shakespeare since his High School days, and his interpretation of the thunder in the cauldron scene in "Macbeth" was his best effort. In a little quiet cottage in the suburbs of the city, we caught sight of the modest Ruth Rifenburg, who is the famous novelist who wrote Ten Nights in ci Drug Store, and Sarsaf- parrilla, Its Cause and Cure. A, glance to the south brought to our eyes our dear friend Frances Rosensweig leading a pack of competitors in the famous Pittsburgh to Philadelphia puddle-jumper race. Frances had an old 1934 Model K Phord car that maintained an average speed of 73 miles to keep her Well in the lead. In a quick glance we saw Walter Denison pleading his cause before the Pennsylvania Legislature at Harrisburg to pass his proposed law on the banishment of cornet and Calliope players from the state. "The remaining moments of our trip were uneventful. We directed our course due east till We were directly over dear old Troy. There Was yet a few more gallons of gas in our tank, so we circled the surrounding country several times, and then decided to bring the plane to rest at the Fancher Airport in Eagle Mills. Our trip was over, and we had broken the record set by Lindbergh." BERTHA TAYLOR JACK SPAIN Sixty-four ig' fDan1anian 28 Glass Qriticisms Robert Campaigne-Bob says he likes old songs best of all. N o doubt his favorite tune is an old-timer called Ida. Are we right, Robert? "Len" Rosenthal is another boy quite musically inclined. He has just composed two songs. One is a sentimental little number called, "Where is My Marcia?" and the other is entitled, "Have You Got Your Copy?" It is a bit difficult to criticize John Halligan. For one thing, John is almost above reproach. It took John quite some time to start Usteppin' out," but of late we hear he's quite socially inclined, especially at the tele- phone where he is very efficient at exchanging rings. "Bill" Aram sure knows how to arrange schedules-nothing incrimi- nating, Bill, we mean baseball schedules. Remember the serious mistake you made in regards the Lansingburgh game. Please be careful in the future, and don't mix your dates. "Milt" Weinstein is just another one of those boys a wee trifle too heavy for light work. "Milt" doesn't mind this. He says he's one of the "Four Horses of the Apocalypse." We wish to thank Milt at this time for all the fine dinner music he has supplied the diners in 112-b for four years. Too bad it was all gratis, eh, Milt? Despite the fact that Van Blarcom has often been told that Troy High would not miss him, "Van" knows better. In fact, we know that in years to come, the class of '28 will assemble often to sing "Oh, How I Miss You Tonight" for the benefit of "Van." We know one person who will miss this daily visits of Van is Mr. Robinson. George Toomey is a thoroughbred from Saratoga. We hear he's quite an actor. Have you ever seen him portray the Lover King in the "Hamlet" production? He's quite proficient, and why shouldn't he be? Pauline Raymond is his coach, critic and leading lady. According to Everett Curley, there are plenty of reasons for being absent besides sickness. All of these reasons are owning an automobile. Whenever Mr. Fancher wanted Curley to be absent, he served one Bogart straight. "Ed" Weinberg is a boy who has already brought much credit to his school. We expect that some of the marvelous concoctions mixed in our labratory will bring fame and glory to his old Troy High and '28, Secre- tary Kirkendall, you are hereby instructed to write a letter of Warning to Prof. Einstein warning him of competition by scientist "Houdini" Weinberg. Sixty-five IQ fDardanian 28 Shakespeare said that men who think are dangerous. Wilson must be quite meek. Don't be down-hearted if you don't cop the French honors, Walt. ' Edward Denison-Denison says "I donlt know" so effectively that Mr. Fancher gives him 50-50 more than he deserves. He knew enough to pass, however. Stanley Woolman-One day while coming home from school, we saw Stanley Woolman sitting and Cwhat shall we sayb talking to a beautiful girl in a Stutz roadster. We certainly were surprised at first, but on further investigation, we found that a merchant of Troy had promised "Stan" a S10 ad in the Dardanian if he could snap Stanley's picture in such a sitting. We all know Stanley's scruples, but in answer Stan said, "Business is Business." Walt Moloney-It is said that gentlemen prefer blondes. Whether or not Walt Moloney is a gentleman is a question. One thing we're sure of: Walt sure does prefer blondes. Henry Holzhauer-It has been reported that our "Heinie" has been seen in the wee small hours of the morning, and he wasn't in a milk Wagon, either. John Homan-One of Troy's famous Spanish athletes. If he had sense enough to go to Spain, he would be a national hero. How he can throw that bull! Jack Hurd-Here comes J osh-hey, boy! We have heard some mean stories about these country boys. Stick to the straight and narrow, Jack, old boy. Denton Crawmer-When one thinks of bankers, one's mind naturally turns to Mr. Denton Crawmer, Esq. His knowledge and experience in banking have been largely responsible for the success of a new sport in T. H. S. extra-curricular activities-Economics. Samuel Erickson-Special notice to the edition of The Dardaniafn. Please publish ---- F.rickson's picture with write up. He has never been early since he first entered school. Mr. Krug, kindly verify. Jack Ide-J ack Ide is very proficient in French and in ? If you want to know what the question mark standsfor ask him about the system of transportation and communication in French homework. Evers, please explain the latter. Jack Spain-Perhaps all of you don't know that Spain never had to take a girl home in the rain. Never mind, Jack, you'll slip and fall, someday! S ixty-six IQ 'Dardanian 28 Bill Bennett-Question: "Why doesn't Bill Bennett ever need an over- coat?" Answer: "That's easy g he's never out in the cold." Now what else do you want to know? ' Henry Ott-Everyone wonders what Ott will look like when he comes out of his shell. We all have our conjectures, however. Walter Schwebel-Schwebel has many ideas, we know, but, alas, they are never expressed. Al Streever--A certain Al Streever has not been heard from since last September. That's too bad, but they say that stillwater runs deep. How about it, Al? Oral Swingle-Can you imagine Oral Swingle getting a 98 in Chem- istry. Well don't worry folks, there's no danger. Irwin Taplin-Remember the time Irwin Taplin found himself in a beauty parlor, looking for an "ad"'? Well, to tell the truth, he forgot all about the Had." Carl Beck-Carl appears to be a rather sleepy fellow, perhaps a dreamer. His success as a runner has not seemed to 'stic' him up. We suggest a blonde as an eye-opener. George Choquette-We really don't know what to say about George. He seems so aloof. Perhaps this can be taken as a criticism by itself. Bill Farrell-Martha Young has a peculiar longing for jewelry-and how-she wouldn't let Bill have even his Hi-Y pin. Jack Parks-Parks has high ideals, super mundane, in fact. If you don't believe this, just ask Miss Treanor. How about it, Parks? Roy Miller-Ever since Roy Miller began to "step out," he's been known for his speed. Oh, boy! Peter Makian-Makian, well, well. For the "luv a Pete," who ever said that Darwin was wrong. Step right up, folks. Charles Loux-Loux is affected by some magnetic influence on the outside, and I don't mean maybe. Anyway, we have no fear for his being out of place when he encounters the cruel world in June. Bryant Kirkendall-Kirkendall is well known for his smile, and oh, how she can smile. That right, Kirk? Elmer Curtin-It's a good thing that Shakespeare never heard about Curtin, or the world would never have heard about Shylock. Never mind, old dear, chasing shekels is a fine habit. Keep it up! Sixty-seven IQ fDa'rdanian 28 Jack Evers-When you think of "marryin'," you should consult Jack Evers for expert information. Ask Dad, he knows. Outside of this, Evers is all right. Andy Emanation-Poor Emanationg last September he was in per- fect health. Now he's all broken up. lt's too bad he had that bad "fall" so early in the spring. "Oz" Fish-If you ever are confronted With a big, perplexing prob- lem, just ask "Oz" Fish to philosophize about it. Can he, and how? Abbott Walker-Contrary to popular opinion, Ab. Walker doesn't live in South Troy. I mean not yet! But one never can tell, strange things will happen. Ralph Link-Long ago it was prophesied that Ralph Link would some day be "missing" No danger of that now, you can stumble on him any- where. "Larrie" Patrie-Patrie seems to have some queer ideas. That's all right Larry, We predict that you'll be O. K. before your married twice! Frank Patoka-In Patoka, we have a diligent and conscientious worker. Keep it up Patoka, you'll be a great help to your mother some day. Zina Lewis-Zina Lewis excels in two things: giving oral comps. and selling Hi-Y supper tickets. Just what would Hi-Y do without good- natured Zina? "Dick" Prendergast-"Dick" Prendergast believes in blondes, and they believe in him. Yes, Dick, we realize the Freshman corridor needs your Senior influence. Caius Hoffman-We all hope that Hoffman will continue to use Palm Olive. You see, Caius, we want you to keep that schoolgirl complexion. Paul Hickey-Paul Hickey would make an excellent husband, we are sure. So would someone else. He is particularly fond of "Babies" Wow! that's a deep one. "Art" Rosen-We hope that sometime next September, "Art" Rosen will know what the Dardanian is all about. Up till now, it seems to be the least of his worries. At least, we hope to get a good Dardanian. John Zimmer-In Zimmer we find a perplexing problem. He has threatened to ruin our class by leaving us several times in the past few years, but now We see that he has stuck it out for four years for is it six?J and is still with us. Sixty-eight IQ 'Dardanian 28 "Joe" Ryan-"Joe" Ryan, poor fellow, never can get enough sleep. In fact, that is his main excuse for not doing any homework. He excels every one else in our history class-in sleep, I mean. "Bob" Anderson-Anderson believes in a strong foundation for all classrooms. That's why he's always at the bottom. What would our Virgil class have done without him? Edward Apple-Apple seems to excel in keeping himself out of the way. Don't mind this, old boy, this isn't bologna, it's just apple peal. William Vishner-Wee "Willie" Vishner will never be a football player, we're sorry to say, but a lawyer maybe he'll be, someday. He's got a good start, we mean the portfolio. What do you carry in it, Willie? Herman Rosenthal-Herman J. Rosenthal or Him, as he is better known, is Mr. Heister's right hand man by mutual consent of-Weinstein and Apple. "Herm" has a tendency to forget his books, but we think this fault must be corrected by this time. During basketball season Herm wrote an article in the Parrot stressing the fact that the students should learn the words of the Alma Mater. The article was so convincing that the opposing team began to sing during the halves. "Walt" Wilder-"Walt" Wilder has spent much time and energy in illuminating T. H. S. Note-We don't mean the classes or the subjects, we mean the auditorium for Senior Dances. We hear Walt is working on a new invention, a banjo that play by electricity. We're glad to hear it, Walt. Harry Kentzel-Harry read the "ad" by Billie Burke-"I love a man who smokes a pipe." Has anyone fallen yet, Harry? Ned Tymeson-Ned Tymeson spends from two to three hours daily, thinking up excuses for not doing his homework. Eldridge Wells-Wells, well, well! That's the plural of well. Now run along, little boy, you're all wet! James Wood-Ruth Gibson was sensible once upon a time. Then she met "Jimmy" Wood. Nuf sed, folks, but we surely feel sorry for Jim. Howard Halligan-Last year Howard Halligan was late eve1'y other day. This year sees him reformed, however. Now he's late every day. John Hawley-In Hawley we find the futiire German Philosopher. As an assistant to Wilder and as a pupil of Mr. Host, our genial friend Hawley is unsurpassed. Norville Downie-Alas, for our dream baby. In every class we find N orv1lle Downie painting beautiful air castles on the windows. Let's hope you visualize them some day, Norv. Sixty-nim I9 fDardcmian 23 Leslie Curthoys-Enter Leslie Curthoys, the boy Wonder, folks, he's alive! In the past few months he has come to be essential to the 4th fioor and especially in Physics "Lab." Oh, boy, what would our Physics Class do Without our Leslie? Jack Reilly--A man is known by the company he keeps. Alas, then, for Reilly for who is his inseparable companion but "Oz" Fish? Company 'Z We'll say and howl Harry Hollins-Hail to our most conceited Senior! that is, speaking theoretically. Actually, Harry is an orator and as such, has upheld his dignity by refusing to submit to the wiles of the women. John Ide-Boy! how Jack can sleep! He became drowsy with the Revolutionary War and was sound asleep when the World War was being waged in all its fury. He should have been chosen the class sleeper. William Kelly-Here we present the runner-up to the most bashful boy in the class. Hero as he is, Bill has managed to maintain his high ranking in tennis mainly through his inaffability to women. Helen Fredenburgh-Have you ever noticed what a popular place Sand Lake is? One of the reasons we hear, is that Helen lives there. Irene DeFreest-When Irene was in English class she certainly made good use of her time. We hear she used the period trying to acquire Coyne. Helen Mahoney-Helen certainly is some athlete. We hear the wheels of the boy friend's car are all bent. We didn't think you were as athletic as that, Helen! Iola File-We can't say much about Iola, she's so quiet and unassum- ing, but we hear she's putting something over on us and has quite a shiek. ' Mary Simmons-Mary used to love to go into Second Period, Business English class because she sat in front of a certain tall youth whom Mary thought she could-er-win. Dorothy Pollock-They say that good looking people take a very poor picture but when we saw Dorothy's we knew that there's certainly an exception to every rule. Marjorie Flynn-Have you heard of Marge's proposed trip around the world. We know that wherever she goes, she'll never forget Spain. Ida Henderson-Ida armed herself with Cupid's arrows and went to war. She won the whole Campaifgne. Leona LaFrance-Leona took a deep breath one day and called him. She certainly Ccmldwell. Seventy L I9 fDa'rdanian 28 Helen Mclssac-Helen will never worry about being an old maid. She's had a Husband for some time. Beatrice Snyder-Beatrice just loves wild animals, especially lions. She does! Just ask her about Leo. Margaret Moore-Margaret Moore is awfully quiet but we don't take much stock in that for, you know, still water runs deep. Marjorie Marshall-"Marge" Marshall is one of the few people left in the world who can blush. Just compliment "Marge" or make her the center of attraction and you'll see an honest-to-goodness, old-fashioned blush. ' Rosemary Leonard-Rosemary is one of the peppiest people in High School and without her around, life would certainly be one dull affair. Ruth Wheeler-Ruth came from Montreal with her golden head and merry laugh and walked right into our hearts where there'll always be a special place for her. Miriam Weaver-Miriam won the French prize last year and she may yet win a bigger French prize for we hear she has a boy friend in France with whom she corresponds. Margaret Bulger-Margaret doesn't say much but she doesn't have to-that gorgeous red hair of her's makes her noticeable everywhere. Florence Gabauer-Florence is supposed to be a man-hater but we're 'very skeptical about this,for when a certain Prince Charming comes along we know that Florence will throw all her good resolutions to the winds. Mary J acobs-We know several boys in Troy Hi who are rather in- terested in Mary, but alas and alack, Mary's interests are centered in Manhattan. Ann Rose Fogarty-We hear Ann is interested in Freshmen. She certainly believes in getting and training them young. Ruth Foos-We always wondered why Ruth took but a passing in- terest in the boys of Troy Hi. Now we know. She goes in for bigger and better stuff at the R. P. I. , Ruth Morse-Ruth is certainly getting high hat. She doesn't care for local boys, she goes in for these New Yawkahs. Agnes Maloney-Agnes is one of these people whom everyone likes to see around. She is one of the most accommodating, efficient and best loved girls in the Senior Class. Mary Alice Shannon-Poor Mary Alice-don't you pity her? She has to ride on the trolley cars now that her Chrysler is in New York. ' ' 1 Seilcnty-one I9 fDardanian 28 Florence Beeker-Florence is very fond of classical poets, but her favorite is Milton. Iva Morrison-Iva might be one of these bigger and better people but she'll always Want to get what she's Worth. Elva Nealon-Elva used to wear socks and curls, but since she's pulled up her socks and done up her curls, she's become one of Troy Hi's famous heartbreakers, for when she rolls those blue eyes of hers-why even presidents fall. Betty Simpson-Betty is our artist and she sure can sling a mean paint brush. Dorothy McCabe-"Dot" sure believes in that old idea that Seniors loved to be gazed at with awe by the lower classmen. Did you ever see "Dot" down on the second floor with her ring of masculine admirers? Betty Oskanian-We always thought Betty was hiding something from us by that look in her eyes, but we never knew her likings ran toward traveling salesmen. Thelma Brand-We thought Thelma didn't like boys but she certainly was a fast worker on the ride back from the Schenectady game. Mary Chambers-Mary will make a good wife for some lucky man. She can cook, sew, bake, 'n everything. Marie Pollock-We wondered why Marie took such little interest in the Troy Hi boys for with her beautiful face she certainly has many ad- mirers but now We know-we've heard her name linked with a certain Andrew, and Andrew sure drew a prize package. Mary McGrath-Mary is another attractive girl of Troy Hi Whose interests are centered elsewhere. We hear she has lost her heart to a certain young man from Catholic Hi. Pauline Raymond-Pauline is supposed to be very quiet, but we wouldn't be surprised some day if she flared up, for people with hair the color of Pauline's C according to Elinor Glynj aren't generally so passive. Maud Wynne-Maude Wynne with her gently ways has won every- one's heart. Arlene Chambers-We wondered why Arlene was so cold and dis- interested in all the boys--now We know. She has informed us that she likes "older men" better. Margaret Vollmer-Margaret's favorite song is "Let a Smile be Your Umbrella" for the weather might get Vedder you know. Seventy-two 5 9 'Dardanian 28 Frances Rosensweig-If you're ever walking along the halls and you suddenly hear someone exclaim, "Tell me another!" just look around and you'll be sure to see Frances surrounded by a group of "intimates." Caroline Sicley-Caroline used to be an ardent admirer of Henry Ford, but since Henry's made a Lady out of Lizzie, Caroline has turned to Elsie Chevrolet. Ruth Rifenburg-We hear Ruth is going to be a nurse. I suppose Ruth got so used to the hospital she can't bear to leave the dear old place. Bertha Taylor-Clever, active, tom-boyish, jolly and good-that's Bertha summed up in adjectives. Elizabeth Schlegel-Elizabeth loves to play Jacks but not jack-stones. She plays Jacks with hearts. Helen Boyne-You know Spark Plug's baby's name is Ookey and Helen's nickname is also Ookey. Can it be possible that there's a con- nection? Ruth Hubbell-When you hear Ruth talking of an Abbott don't think she means a monk, but someday she might connect him with a clergyman. Sadie Rosen-Did you ever notice the stunning shoes Sadie always has? We often wondered if the boy friend was a shoe salesman. Ada Howard-It's easy for Ada to keep her silph like figure, for that walk she takes back and forth to school every day would keep any- one down to a "perfect 363' Marjorie Wall4Most people like fish on Friday but Marge likes Fish everyday. Elisabeth Leibach-Elisabeth is one of the reasons Why the boys on the Rochester basketball team thought Troy was such a nice place. Margaret Shea-Margaret is the other reason why those Rochester boys thought Troy was so nice, for when she rolled those Irish blue eyes of hers, the boys fell as hard as the Troy boys do. Ada Fredenburgh-We always wondered why Ada was always run- ning out of car checks-by the way. Now we know-there's a big attrac- tion up in the United Traction office. Mildred Peck-"Mil" doesn't weigh much but she's certainly missed when she isn't around for she sure is a Peck of fun. I Corland Hoyt-Corland doesn't look like a mosquito, but oh! what a little pest she is. Seventy-three IQ fDardanian 28 Katherine Brewer-One day we heard "Kate" singing "The Watch on the Rhine." We knew she wasn't German, so we asked her why she liked that song. "Oh," she said, "it isn't the song, especially, for Rhiner no Rhine, John is mine." Martha Young-Martha ought to make a good banker-she's had a lot of experience in handling Bills. Dorothy Uline-"Dot" is supposed to be the baby of the class but we doubt this, for when time Pauls, Dot writes letters in French to a certain handsome admirer of hers. Isabelle Messner-Even if Isabelle is about the most quiet girl in the Senior Class, she is one of the brightest, too. Grace Goetz-Grace is a very doubtful person. If you tell her any- thing she'll always say, "Honestly?" Eleanor Strohecker-Eleanor is one of the reasons why "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." Charlotte Gillespie-Charlotte should be given a leather medal. She's won the heart of the Class Treasurer who used to be an avowed woman hater and now she'll always have a Curtin to hide behind. Hazel Dunham-Hazel is supposed to be a good mathematician and she certainly lives up to her reputation. At a party one night, she had to count the spokes in the wheels of the boy friend's car in the game of "forfeits," and declared that there were 25, only to have it revealed, to her chagrin, that there were disc wheels on the car. Bertha Hyde-No wonder Bertha has such a sunshiny look-she has a little Ray around her all the time. Anna Yaletchko-Anna's favorite password is "Let's Go!" and she certainly does go ahead and makes quite a name for herself in both athletics and art. Mildred Graves-Don't let Mildred's name mislead you for she's anything but what her name implies. Greenberg, Blanche-Blanche ought to make a success in life if she's has as conscientious about the rest of her work as she is about Shorthand. Altie Corcoran-Altie can certainly hide things from people. She never told us about that certain boy friend of hers who went skating with her so much last winter. We hear he tried to teach her to skate back- wards, but we can't quite figure out why. Seventy-four I IQ fDa'rdanian 28 Mildred Hess-If Mr. Wrigley is giving any more prizes he ought to give one to "Mil" for she chews more gum than anyone else in Troy Hi, but we always wondered what became of all the gum poor Mil had to throw away in Shorthand Class. Mary Ryan-Mary forged ia chain for her beaus, link by link. But one was missing, what was she to do? She looked around-and Ralph stepped up and cried, "I am the Missing Link!" , Marjorie Herbold--Marjorie is certainly some heart breaker. She's had all kinds of men at her feet, Tall men, Short men, Fat men, Scrawney men, and still they come! But sh! don't breathe it-we've heard she's fastened herself to a Bob and is coasting merrily along. Grace Bauer-Grace was supposed to be the wild woman in the Circus but she resigned because they couldn't find a man wild enough for her-why, Grace! Grace Younghans--We hear Grace is thinking of building a house and she's sure that there's going to be a Hall in it, too. Nettie Brown-Nettie is certainly going to be a credit to Miss Calla- han some day. For efficiency Nettie could Win all the prizes. Ruth Gibson-Ruth doesn't claim to be a luniberman, but she's very particular of the kind of Wood she likes. Seventy-five IQ fDa'rdanian 28 Glass will We, the Class of 1928, considering the uncertainty of our future existence, declare this to be our last Will and Testament: First-after we have humbly begged the faculty's pardon for our mischievous pranks and marked propensity to procrastinate-with malice toward none, and charity for all, we give and bequeath To the Freshman, the desired berth on the second iioor with its easy access to the bookstore, where a reproduction of the "Tempest" may be procured free with every illegal absence. To the Sophomore, the long awaited and cherished gift of becom- ing a Junior, and the first to be sold tickets for senior activities. To the Sophomore, the right of receiving one of the new lockers on the third floor, so that he may discard at times the assumed role of dignity, when his books fall from said locker at ten minutes to nine. To the Junior, a grant of numerous Bogart reports, limitless activi- ties, a few studies Cas extra-curricular workl, and a swelled head. CWe advise as a remedy for the latter, either a good cold cloth or any member of the Faculty.J To the Junior, the right to listen to "Come in and decorate the blackboardsf' "You can't be doing that," "Is they another thought?" and "Go home and think it over, you're young yet." To Mr. Robinson, a chance to enjoy Heaven after the devils have departed. b To the entire student body and Faculty, our support in the devel- opment and maintenance of the ideals of Troy High School. Signed: The Class of 1928. ' Likewise, we make and appoint Mr. Irving E.

Whether we go to college, enter the business World, or stay at home, we shall soon be con- ",L fronted with new responsibilities. We earnestly hope that during f'.f"-4 our high school years we have learned to bear responsibility and to adapt ourselves to new conditions. To the citizens of Troy, to the school board, to the faculty, and above all, to our parents, we now give our most grateful thanks for their generosity to us. Classmates, the time has come for us to say farewell to our beloved school. We must part from our teachers and from our schoolmates. Our class, which has worked and played together for four years, forming close-knit bonds of affection and understanding, now will be dispersed, perhaps never again to be fully reunited. Let us, as we leave, consecrate a resolve in our hearts that our school shall feel nothing but pride in us, her sons and daughters. Seventy-seven fDa'rclanicm 1 6 i Seven ty-eight IQ 'Dardanian 28 junior Qlass The Junior class during 1927-1928 was very active. -It furnished ushers for the Teacher's Convention last October. In December the class presented its annual entertainment, a motion picture, "The Three Musketeers." An unusual event of the year was the purchasing of class rings. Other years the rings were purchased during the Senior year but the Class of '29 deviated from the usual course and bought the class rings. Early in March the committees for the June Hop were appointed. Earl Hutchinson was elected editor-in-chief of the "Purple Parrot" for the coming' school year.

It has endeavored to keep up, throughout 1927 and 1928, the admirable work which was begun by its founders. In the early part of the season the club was forced to give up its club room to the Purple Parrot, and consequently has been considerably handicapped in its research work. The club, however, has held weekly meetings on Wednesday, every member has been benefited by the scientific talks which have been given at every meeting. The club "put on" a side- show at the Senior Circus. No one who visited the "show" regretted the spending of his dime. Under the capable hands of the hrst and second term Executive Committees, the Club has been able to make many worthwhile trips to places of scientific interest. Among these trips were those to Gurley's, N. Y, Telephone Co, Hudson Valley Coke Co., General Electric Co., Beech-N ut Packing Co., Burden Iron Works, and the Ford Plant. The first term Executive Committee was: Van Arnam, Chairman, Wood and Fish. As the constitution provides for new ofncers to be elected each term, the club chose the following second term Executive Committee: Fish, Chairman 5 Van Arnam and Riley. In the inter-club basketball league, the club entered one of the best teams. Though the club will lose many of its members by graduation, there will still be some to carry on next year.

Its mem- bership is open to all students who acquire an average of 80? for two consecutive months. During the 1927-28 year several interesting meet- ings were held. These meetings consisted of debates, dialogues, and discussions. In November the Gregg and French clubs held a dance. A Christmas party was given in December. Soon after this the mem- bers received their pins, the seal being two "Gs" intertwined. In Feb- ruary an afternoon social party was held in connection with the Cicero and French clubs.

It is a fundamental aim of this club to promote and arouse school spirit. This year the club has done much toward arousing spirit in the student body. It has promoted several pep meetings 3 it has provided transportation to all football and basketball games, and, when there was a possibility of our winning the basketball finals, the Tau Club provided those "Beat Albany" and "Beat Schenectady", signs which aroused so much enthusiasm. Men of Tau are elected to membership not because of popularity or scholastic standing but because of atheltic ability, as only men who have earned the coveted "T" are eligible. In fact, all letter men are automatic- ally members of Tau. This year there were 42 letter men, and conse- quently 42 members. OFFICERS President ...... .........................

The year opened with the initiation of eighteen girls, all of whom survived. At the literary meetings discussions were held on different phases of etiquette and on psychology. The reading' of modern poetry was another feature that was much enjoyed. Social meetings were held each month in the library. One of the most outstanding social affairs of the year was the one held at Christmas time when Delphic entertained Phil. On Febru- ary eighteenth, the Delphic-Phil Valentine Dance was held. It was enjoyed by the members of the alumni as well as by the members of both MEMBERS societies. President .... . Vice-President. . . Secretary. . . . . Cor. Secretary. . Treasurer. . .... . . . . .

In the fall about twenty new members were elected into the Society. There followed several interesting debates, and before the Christmas holidays, Pi was challenged to a debate, which it did not accept. In 1928 Web played a tie basketball game with Pi, and also lost to Pi. We hope that as the succeeding classes appear on Troy High's horizon, they will support this Society, revered for more than thirty years by the scholars of our High School. The President of the Senior Class, the Editor-in-Chief of The School Paper, Editor-in-Chief of The Dardanian, five entrants in the National Oratorical Contest, and four members of the Debating Team, as well as the Captain of the Track Team, have lived and worked in Web throughout the year. Thus we see that Web has been and, we hope, will ever be the nucleus for the executive, the scholarly, and the literary talent of dear old Troy High-that it will go down in our history as the Society which helped in making the Class of '28 what it is!

At Christmas time Phil greatly enjoyed the party given by its sister society, Delphic. In February the Phil-Delphic dance was a very successful and delightful affair. Phil gave Delphic its annual party on St. Patrick's Day. An amusing feature of the program was a miniature musical comedy, "Rose-Marie," written by Bertha Taylor. Through- out the year Phil had several literary meetings at which poetry, essays, and short plays were read. During the year Miss Treanor, who has been the faculty advisor of the society for several years, resigned. Miss Flynn was chosen in her place. OFFICERS President .... . . .... .... . . . ....

"Pi" takes pride in the fact that the captains of the three major sports, the presidents of Hi-Y and Tau, and the first Editor-in-Chief of the Purple Parrot are Pierians. So, although as a unit "Pi" has accom- plished little, its individuals have contributed largely to this season's school activities. Oyjicefrs President ..... ......... . . .

At many of the weekly suppers, the members of the club have enjoyed talks from prominent men of this vicinity. The club sponsored a dance at the Y in November and a sleigh ride in February. The annual Inter-City Hi-Y Dance held at the Domino Club, April 27, was a great success. The Hi-Y play, "Too Many Parents," was presented on May 11. The play was a dramatic and financial success. The influence of Hi-Y has been extended among the boys of the Junior and Senior classes by the induction of many new members. At intervals during the year, letters, telling of the activities of the Hi-Y and of school, were sent to the Alumni of the club. President ...... Vice President .... Secretary .... . . Treasurer ....

Starting the season with a light, unexperienced squad, Coach Picken had to send his team against two of the strongest teams of the season in our opening games. This was one of the worst "breaks" of the year. Not only did this lower our morale, but the fact that we had to play teams all season which were far above our calibre weakened us considerably. One colorful example of the spirit of the Purple and Gold warriors is the defeat rendered Cambridge, a team which last year made the only points scored against our champions. Though we were outclassed in most of the games, the fighting spirit of our players is not forgotten, for, whether defeat or victory faced us, the Purpel and Gold eleven always fought on. - Those who won their letters are: Jack Spain QCapt.J Dan Cillis Jack Evers Bill Bennett Jack Hurd Theron Emanation Jack Riley Edward Mesrobian fMgr.D Henry Holzhauer Ozro Fish Arnold Weinstein Louis Eldred Jim Donnelly Harold Weisberg Bob Campaigne Clement Miller Charles Crowley GAME SUMMARY Opponents Troy 12 Johnstown 6 30 Gloversville 0 0 Cambridge 30 2 R.

Closing the season with eleven victories out of nineteen starts shows the splendid advance the team made this year under the watchful guidance of Coach Picken. The season stands full of many colorful examples of the stern qualities of our Purple and Gold quintet. The team boasts of having never been defeated on their home court in any inter-scholastic game. Lansingburgh, although not in our league this year, went down to defeat before our near-champions twice in the last season. There is more glory to the team when we think that the team, namely Albany High School, who defeated us for the championship was one of the leading contenders for the New York State championship. For the first time the basketball team took an extended trip. Although defeat came to our lads on the memorable trip, Troy High's name will stand aloft. Dartmouth Freshmen were given the hardest game of the year by Troy High's court men. "Dick" Prendergast star forward of this year's outfit lead the scoring list with 114 points in nineteen games while Captain Jack Hurd was next with one less game played, his total points amounting to 112. Those who received their letters are: Jack Hurd, Capt. Ray O'Bryan Bill Bennett Harold Altus Jack Evers Edward Flynn Dick Prendergast Earl Johnson Abe Gordon Bryant Kirkendall, Mgr. Leonard Rosenthal One Hundred Fifteen IQ fDa'rdanian 28 Senior Girls' iBoc5lcetl9all Cfdeam., The Senior Girls' Basketball Team has had a very successful season, losing the championship of the school by only one game. The team Will, as teams of previous years, receive a Basketball Emblem from the school. We Wish to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to Miss Clohessy, Physical Director of Girls' Athletics, for her deep interest and hearty support. Agnes Maloney, Dorothy Uline and Anna Yaletchko were the cap- tains of the three basketball teams. The members of the teams are as follows: Senior I Senior II Serniorr III Dorothy Uline, G Agnes Maloney, F Anna Yaletchko, F Ruth Wheeler, F Helen Mahoney, F Margaret Moore, F Elizabeth Schlegel, F Elisabeth Liebach, F Ada Howard, G Marion Costello, F Ruth Gibson, G Mary McGrath, G Marjorie Herbold, F Frances Hourigan, G Mildred Hess, G Bertha Taylor, G Eleanore Strohecker, G Mary Jacobs, F Mildred Peck, G Mildred Graves, G Marjorie Wall, F One Hundred Sixteen IQ 'Dardanian 28 Gross Gountry With but a few veterans left from the last year's squad the Cross Country team was somewhat handicapped because of the lack of mater- ial. Nevertheless those who did report as candidates practiced faith- fully under the tutelage of Captain Lawrence Patrie. The team opened the season by gaining seventh place in the Inter- scholastic meet at R. P. I. Roy Miller, veteran runner, distinguished himself by being the first high school runner to finish in the Albany Marathon. The work of the team throughout the year was performed creditably and with Robert Young and other good runners left for the next year's team Troy High should stand high in Cross Country ranks. Those who received their letters are as follows: Lawrence Patrie, Captain Arthur Daly Arthur Rosen, Manager Fred Scott Robert Young Carl Beck Roy Miller One Hundred Seventeen I9 'Dardanian nv llurulrml Eighteen IQ 'Dardanian 28 Cigmck Captain Roy Miller, led a very promising pack of runners in the daily workouts, but the field department of the track squad did not appear any too formidable for the season's campaign.. The squad, nevertheless were very lucky in acquiring as coach, Marty McDonaugh, a well known track coach and mentor of the R. P. I. harriers. Under his supervision the team should develop to the peak of perfection, capable of carrying Troy's colors to advantage. Manager William Connors compiled the following schedule: May 2-Inter-Class track meet. May 12-R. P. I. Triangular meet. May 19-Interscholastic Meet at Chatham. May 26-R. P. I. Interscholastic. June 9-Dual meet with Chatham High. Those who show promise of making good this year are: Roy Miller, fCapt.J William Luby Carl Beck Edward Worden Robert Young Walter Wallrad Walter Maloney One Hundred Nineteen I9 fDa'rdanian S 1 One Hundred Twenty IQ 'Dardanian 28 iBaseball The Purple and Gold nine started off the season with a promise of fulfilling one of the best seasons ever. Defeating some of the best teams of this section, Troy High went against Lansingburgh High School twice, emerging victors in each game. Our league this year consists of Albany, Schenectady, Lansingburgh and Troy high schools. Captained by Jack Evers, veteran player of Troy High, the team went through the first month of its long schedule gaining the long end of most of the scores. Drury High School is again on our schedule this year, thus giving our players the opportunity to distinguish themselves by playing one of the best teams of Massachusetts. Under the leadership of Coach Picken, renowned leader in athletics, the team is sure to make a good showing throughout the baseball season. Manager "Bill" Aram has compiled the schedule. The score of the games played to date, is as follows: op.T.u April 17 Country Day Here 2- 9 April 20 Hoosick Falls There 14- 9 April 24 Country Day There April 27 Albany Here 5- 3 May 2 Lansingburgh Here 7- 8 May 4 Hoosick Falls There 10-15 May 7 Watervliet Here 10-13 May 8 Country Day There 6-15 May 11 Schenectady There 4- 1 May 12 Rensselaer There 7- 8 May 14 Rensselaer Here . 1- 13 One Hundred Twenty-one The letter men are: IQ 'Dardanian 28 ,Soccer The Troy High Soccer team ended this year's field sport success- fully in spirit if not quite so successfully in material results. Under the coaching mentor, Boyd Williams, the team was sent against some of the strongest teams of this section, and out of four starts two were defeats and two were tie games played with Waterford High School. Most of the veteran players of the former season were lost by gradua- tion and Captain Jack Parks was forced to lead a practically new team on the field this year. Jack Parks, Capt.
