Two things we will take with us, our newly-received diplomas-and our memories of the past four years. So many things have happened in our high school life that comparatively few can be recorded here. Our first year was also the first year of the school and so we had a share in the forming of school ideals and traditions. We took part in about every school activity there was. When the Student Council, the Orchestra, the G. A. A., and the Broadcaster, were organized, many members of our class were chosen for active positions in them all. It is interesting to, recall that the name: The Broadcaster, Station U. H. S., chosen for the school paper, was the one suggested by Wilbur Muehlig from our grade. At Christmas time two new traditions were started, the Christmas Procession and Play. In March the school participated in its first Purple and Gold Meet with our own Underdowniat the head of the Purples. Then a little later came Project Day with its interest and novelty.- With the coming ,of spring, our thoughts began to wander away from school and studies lwe had studied ,a .little bit during the year just for a change now and thenl. Finally we had the brilliant inspiration ofa class,picnic at Delhi! Of course we had a perfect time. Do you remember the baseball game between the boys, and girls when the boys had to do everything witlrtheir left hands? Hardly had that carefree time be- come history when we had to concentrate strenuously for exams. Soon our first assembly for the awarding of the U's had come and gone. Never before had we had such an opportunity of beginning the history of an absolutely new school as we had that first year and because of it, the University High School will probably always "belong" to us a little more than it might have otherwise. The next year things were pretty much the same, in the main. More of the boys came to school wearing long trousers. thereby creating rather more of a sensation than they appar- ently wished to. When Arbor Day was celebrated, we took the occasion to plant a class tree at the south side of the school entrance. At the suggestion of Buck Yost. who later left the class, it was christened "A1gy II" after the Ford car Miss Hoyle operated at the time. We again decided to have our class picnic at Delhi. Some of our amusement consisted in shaking up the ginger ale and falling into the river. The following year we were proud Juniors looking forward to the time when we would become still prouder Seniors. Mr. Ryan had arrived on the scene, not to take Dr. Schorling's place but rather to create a place all his own. The First important class event of the year was the choosing of our class rings. Another, and possibly even more interesting activity was the presentation of the two plays, "In the Spring a Young Man's Fancy," and "Station 'Y Y Y Y." Every member of the class helped in some way and we had a very exciting time. Incidentally we acquired a bank account. Another outstanding memory of our Junior year will probably be the Junior-Senior Dance given by ns to the graduating class. Never had the library looked so beautiful as it did that night decorated with palms, fiowers, and our class colors, blue and white, in combination with the rose and gray of our guests, the Class of 1927. This party and the final assembly when we moved into the Senior seats in the auditorium, made us realize that it would not be long now before we too would give them up to a succeeding class. . At last we had become full-fledged Seniors! But what was our dismay when we learned that the class was to be separated into two home rooms. VVe had rather prided ourselves on the unity of our class. However we soon found that we could be just as much of a class as before and by the new arrangement we gained a new and valuable class member, Miss Olson, home room teacher of the Senior girls. In October not long after school had started, occurred the only real loss to our class. Horace Richard Gingerich, affectionately known as "I-Iorsief' Perhaps the highest tribute we can pay him is that he was a "good sport" in the best sense of the word. We like to remember him as he was in "Station YYYY" because there he represented what he was, a regular American boy with all the qualities that endear him to his many friends. Toward the end of the semester the class presented "Clarence" by Booth Tarkington which proved to be very successful in all ways. In May the Council established a Senior Privilege Day which is recent enough to be easily recalled. Arrangements were made for Class Day and Commencement, and a class memorial chosen. The Junior class entertained us at the second Junior-Senior Dance and we all had a lovely time. In this manner we have come to the present. It is fitting that, having looked back over the past, we should now turn our faces to that which lies in the future. Whatever it is, wherever it is, may we always take with us the motto of our class, "On! Sail On l" 'I 15 CLASS WILL We, the class of 1928, being of more or less sound mind, memory, and understanding, do hereby make, publish and declare the following to be our last will and testament: We, Benjamin Bailey and Jack Bunting, do will our positions as class electricians to the two Juniors least easily shocked.

The Class of Nineteen Twenty-eight. 16 CLASS PROPHECY tWith Deepest Apologies to Longfellowl Should you ask me whence these stories, Whence these prophecies and legends, Of U. High School, in Ann Arbor At that ancient seat of learning In the State of Michigaumeeg I should answer, I should tell you From the Senior class so famous For its scholars and its athletes For its actors and musicians. I foretell them as I learned them From the Oracle at Delphi. Should you ask me what our Helen, Chieftain of our Student Council Shall be doing in the future, I should answer, I should tell you To the multitudes assembled She will give a wondrous lecture How to educate our students, Keep them working at their lessons Make them diligent and happy Keep them out of all their troubles. Marjorie after college studies Learned to answer urgent questions Where the doctor was at present. That was what we all expected. But l'm sure the rest will startle, For her books of Physics problems VVorry now the helpless student. Dot will no doubt in the future, Marry someone of great learning Someone knowing bugs and beetles, All about their haunts and habits, She will search the world to find him, Entomologists they call them. What his name, I cannot tell you For the vision fades and darkens, But it points to Who's Who's pages. I can hear the murmuring prophet. Whisper of two famous seniors, Albertine and lithe Virginia VVhirling, twirling, now on tip-toes Smiling, famous, gracious dancers. High above the mighty forests O'er the palisades of pine trees, Circles high a fearless airman Fearing naught from wind or weather Rival of the mighty eagle We behold our johnny Wagner. 'Who will aid the suffering people, And allay their 'pains and fever, Wilbur, Jack and also Pearson With their knives and saws and scalpels Ever eager to apply them To our tonsils or appendix. 'I'here's no doubt Pauline will aid then1 As a nurse she'll be on duty Calm, possessed, and most efficient Taking temperatures and pulses, Often giving anaesthetics. Cathelia all her days will squander, In pursuit of art and learning Making rugs and things artistic Dying scarves and prints and batiks Painted like the leaves ot' Autumn, Colored like the sky of morning. Now she thinks it very thrilling If she might become a doctor, But it's safe to say for certain Art will conquer in the long run. Plastic surgery would suit her Building Greek or Roman noses If the features were deficient. If Fred East gets old and crippled, Who will train the winning heroes, Future teams of basket-shooters? No one else than Chief Coach Billy. After tooting all through High School, With aim to be a virtuoso On the flute or maybe oboe, Ben gives up half way through college Takes to building dams and bridges, Undertakes such mighty projects. That if "engineer" is mentioned Bailey's name is always thought of. Delphi's Oracle has pictured, Jazz shall undergo improvement, At the hands of Mildred Reading So that future generations, Looking for the true beginnings Of the art of syncopation Shall ascribe it to our class-mate. XNhile in High School, Betty Covert, Dreamed of long devoted service To the old, the sick, the needy. In the noblest of professions That a woman ever enters. She became a Red-Cross worker ln the army of her country There she met a dashing captain, And the rest, you can imaginef Classmates three, engaged in business, Rose and Agnes with Guy Miller Rugs and Oriental splendors Brought from Turkey and far Persia So successful was this business Soon all three were very wealthy But the lure of book collecting Captivated Agnes' interest, So she sold her share in business Leaving only Rose and Miller In this gainful occupation. At the Lantern shop a waitress, Used to earn her extra pennies In the days when we -were school-mates Recently she's been promoted Now she is a charming hostess ln her own pretentious mansion How it happened I will tell you. Came one day, a striking fellow, Quite the pinkest of perfection Said that ne'er a single maiden Stirred his heart to palpitation Till our Ruth he saw and straightway Took her off to grace his table. Ginny Ladd and Betty Wheeler. Two young ladies well acquainted With the vanities of women, Knowing well the constant effort Needed for a perfect coiffure Purchased with their hoarded earnings All the well known aids to beauty. Soon Miss May and Jeannette Schremser Bored with teaching restless pupilsy Bored with disciplining children Joined their class-mates in this venture. Now all four spend many hours Manicuring and marcelling, Bobbing hair and giving facials. H. H. Ryans' chair was vacant Till the Board of Education After months' deliberation Found our class-mate Milton suited To the Headship ofour High School. That of course, when,he completed Some months sojourn up at Jackson. Serving time for too much speeding. Orville is as rich as Croesus. He can always lend a penny. He owns all the A. and P. stores In United States and Europe Bought from Orville's stores unequalled All your goods are two cents cheaper. VVe remember Frances Thornton C"Cora"j in the class play "Clarence," All her trials, tribulations All her hopes and aspirations Blighted by the heartless hero. Many parts she now is playing Not however, at the Whitney For her hame is more than local. Recognition of her genius Keeps her now in New York City. Babby, since her early childhood Ever thrilled by tight rope walkers Yearned to go with Ringling Brothers. So upon her graduation Joined the three ring aggregation If you wonder how she prospered See the gaudy colored posters Where the great delights are pictured Of the Troupe that thrills beholders In the limelight 'neath the canvass. Lois Graves and Ada Cooper Went to Oberlin to college. After that they stuck together Till Dan Cupid came between them. Now they're neighbors in Ann Arbor And the yard between their houses Echoes with their children's laughter. Margaret, after four years study, Went to Cleveland in Ohio, Mourned so constantly however, For a certain boon companion For Miss Ladd, the one called Lisse, That she saved up all her pennies CFor she had a grand allowancej Bought a ranch in far Montana Learned to use the rope and lasso Un our circus Hrst had practicej Caught with it the Ladd I've mentioned Now they run the ranch together. Herbert Kent became a dentist Tinkers now with plates and bridges Fills our canines and bicuspids Drills and grinds with heartless vigor Telling us it will not hurt much. Ellen Reeves and Joyce were rather Much inclined to matrimony Didn't care to be school teachers Or to type the bosses' letters. So they just "came out" and entered On a whirl of fun and pleasures In due time each caught a husband One a widower with children tLuckily with lots of moneyj One a bachelor distinguished For his kindly disposition. As a sentence for completion Needs the littlest thing to end it just a Dot for its conclusion So our Bob, our famous bug-man To complete in fullest measure All his fondest hopes and visions Took unto himself a helpmate Not the biggest in creation But a fascinating creature Not surpassed by any beetle. Marcel waves belong to ladies, But the men sometimes may have them When by Nature it decreed it, In that case they turn misfortune Into asset-ever golden. Freddy Wiselogle had suffered From his likeness to a flapper Till he vowed he'd be an actor Play a part like Valentino. All the girls soon raved about him, To the movies flocked to see him And his share in each production Mounted in to many millions. Thus I saw within these visions All the secrets of the future Of the distant days that may be Saw what is to be but is not. Now the Oracle is silent Now my story is completed.

As members of the junior class we can certainly commend ourselves with gitantity as well as quality. Although we have at various times been involved A1n dreadful scrapes, we have survived enough so that we can truthfully state that we constitute a large part of this school. A Let me first call your attention to ourhonorable president who captained the first basketball team, and as a freshman was elected president of the Student Council. As an athlete he is superb and holds the height championship of the University High School. As a matter of fact most of the basketball team this year was made up of junior boys, including captain-elect Jim Dale. As eighth graders, the girls spent their homdlvroom periods playing ball and on some occasions went so far as to bring water pistols and rubber balls filled with water. This was of course very pleasant for the faculty member in charge, who left after two years of enforced labor. On various occasions certain victims have been cruelly ejected from the Library and back in the dark ages many a poor citizen rather suddenly left the dear old music class. As Sophomores Mrs. Solve's home room was distinguished by receiving the citizenship and scholarship cup, and astounded us all by winning a tardy contest for which they were awarded a magnificent prize. Miss McKinney's home room is overworked to lose the high honor as they had been completely beaten and so decided if they could not be distinguished by being the best they could surely be extinguished by being the worst for tardinesses and have succeeded won- drously. But now that we are juniors, things have changed as we have assumed a more dignified air preparatory to becoming significant seniors. Now we go about the halls with grave expressions on our long lean faces. We spend all our days in classes and all night with goggles on our noses hovering over lessons and type- writers. Our old class has always been noted for extraordinary things, so as May came we relentlessly abandoned books for a while and turned to high heels and "Green Stockings." Not until the junior-Senior Prom did we realize how short our stay in this school would be, and though we are exceptionally fond of the dear old place, we hope that we can still keep our extensive reputation by having the largest graduat- ing class. At last we are ready to step into the Seniors' boots and see how it feels to be uppermost upper classmen, and have the thrill of wearing mortar boards as we march to graduation exercises with haggard expressions. Now we can rejoice and gloat over the Seniors, for next year they will be starting all over as mere Freshmen-while we are bustling, busy, Seniors! 22 Aigler, Betty !XIlClCl'SUl1, Jean Atwell, Ralph Bird, Dorothy Howdish, Isabelle Brokaw, Roscoe Brooks.

In the sched-uled games of the year the first team of the University High came out very successfully, winning eleven out of thirteen games. One of the losses was to Belleville, a team which U. H. S. had beaten earlier in the year and the other to Dundee. This record for scheduled games is very different from the one made last year, in which the team emerged from the majority of its encounters on the low end of the score. The first year was finished more suc- cessfully than it was started, however. The team seemed to protit by its experi- ences, winning both the Districat' and the Regional tournaments. This year the team not only won the District and Regional tournaments but got partly through the State Tournament at Detroit, being eliminated in the semi-finals by noless a team than St. Michaels of Flint who became Class C champions the next night. Three men leave the Hrst team this year: Capt. Bill Howell, Milton Under- down, and VVilbur Muehlig. However, there is a strong reserve supply, to fill their positions and we all hope and expect the team to have many more success- ful years. Those who will be back next yeariare: jim Dale, guard,lcaptain- elect for 19293 Bob Cummings, center, captain for 19275 Bob VVesterman,i -for- ward: Bob Carson, guardg Bob Fouss, forwardg and XValter jotter, guard. ' f ln the office may be seen four basketball trophies won by the team and also a cup which the supporters managed to win, the ticket selling cup. All. dur- ing the year the school has given the team excellent support and this, in.part, may be the reason for their success. A large part of the credit, however, is due to the wonderful coaching of Mr. Fast, which 1 am snrethe team ,and the school have greatly appreciated. FIRST BASKETBALL TEAM RECORD V U.

XYheeler thinks that possibly "he will have a good in- fluence" on his family. However. he seems only to make things worse for every one falls in love with him, even the maid, Della. Hut in the last act every- thing is straightened around. Mr. and Mrs. VVheeler are reconciled: Clarence wins the governessg Miss Pinney, and Cora and Bobby are sent away to school. The play was coached by Miss Ruth Ale. '28 of the U. of M., under the general direction of Miss Edith Hoyle, of the History department ofthe U. H. S. Between the third and fourth acts of the play, Orville Churchill gave a ven- triloquist act. He showed true ability and kept the audience in continual laughter. The attractive scenery was designed by John Wagner, and thanks are due Mack and Co. by whom the furniture was loaned. Mrs. Martyn ...........................

Will Smith Ransom's "In the Spring a Young Man's Fancy," and "Station Y Y Y Y," another play by Booth Tarkington, were given the evenings of May 6 and 7, 1927. A In Ransom's play, Dickey Trent, a very impressionable young man, falls in love with and proposes in turn to all of five girls who are travelling in Europe as well as to their chaperone, Mrs. jack Hilliard. The girls meet, compare notes, and, to cure Dicky, all six plan to accept him. However, he manages to get out of the scrape with good grace and returns to the United States feeling there is only one girl for him after all. V "Station Y Y Y Y" shows how Mr. NVinstead, a radio Bend, who has refused to allow his son, Herbert, to go to a summer camp, is ingeneously per- suaded to give his consent by Herbert's trick of disconnecting the radio, attach- ing a garden hose to it and giving several authoritative talks on the values of T h ni h ra He received by boys and summer camps. Herbert also puts in several words on the subject of matrimony, for which he has been paid by Roger Colby who is in love with his sister Anita NN'instead. The play .ends happily, Herbert being allowed to go to a camp, and Roger winning Anita. "Station Y Y Y Y" was directed by Kenneth King '27 and "In the Spring a Young Man's Fancy" by Margaret Lord, '27, The Cast of "In the Spring a Young Man's Fancy"- Mrs. jack Hilliard ......................

Margaret Pulfrev. . MUSIC lx X i?fdiiepasdQ.sfgaso1i for the Girls' and liovs' Glee Clubs, has been an unusually .. 4 . A K . t . . successful one. Tliekiiiipettis from the many activities from the year before en- abled the girls to staiffoff auspiciously with several performances in :Xssembly. The Boys' Glee Club. which had not the experience of' the year before, never- theless showed their musical ability both in Assembly and in programs by the Music Department. , The most effective undertaking of the Glee Clubs was the liaster cantata presented by the combined societies. The "First Easter" was given twice. once in a public performance and once in Assembly. The last appearance of the Girls' Glee Club was in June when they presented "The Fays of the Floating lsland" a fanciful cantata which brought the musical year to a close. The seventh. eighth, and ninth grade music classes have contributed much to this year's musical reputation giving a very creditable performance at the No- vember concert. The Orchestra has also had a very active year. lt has made a large number of public appearances, playing once at the Masonic Temple. several times in As- sembly, in the November concert. and at both junior and Senior plays. The success of the classes and organizations has been due mainly to Miss Uls0n's ability and perseverance. The Seniors wish to express their appreciation of Miss Olson's training in the past two years and hope for her further success in the years to come. 39 II H lil utograplws .I I --l X ' N ' f V ff!
