The advance of girls and women into the world of work has brought about the demand for vocational courses for girls to prepare them to enter this comparatively new worldGToday, according to the l93O census, one woman in four in Toledo is gainfully employed outside the homes Varying degrees of skill are required to enter the occupations open to womeno Our social and economic structure has made it more and more impractical or unprofitable for the employer to provide op- portunity to acquire skill needed to enter industrye More and more schools, both public and private have been assuming this responsibility. Vocational education for girls wishing to enter the prom fessions has become a regular pert of' our educational system., The Vocational High School for Girls aims to prepare girls for wage earning occupations on the high school level.The courses are of the Trade Preparatory type. But students must remember that learning is never donee New methods are invented, new skills must be acquired by the worker who has already entered industry. She cannot expect to complete school on a given date fully prepared with all skills necessary to keep pace in the world of occupations. Some course, then in Vocational schools are trade extension courses. To these come the worker who has had or is having experience in some given occupation. No vocational school can say to its students, NToday ycu.are a graduate. You have completed the course.W Rather it should say, 'We have prepar- ed you as best we-dan, according to your ability, to ,enter an occupation.W Girls should enter that occupation humbly, prepared to learn at work or to return to school for further skills needed. Vocational education for girls cannot be built with ta static plank New courses must be added as new needs arise, old courses be discontinued when they no longer serve a pure pose. The class of 1939 is opening the door into the newer educational opportunities for girls and women in ToledoQThey leave the Vocational High School for Girls as its first reps resentatives. Upon them falls the responsibility of the school'S initial contact with industryg Vocational education for girls must build up a program of selection, preparation, placement, follow-up so that each succeeding year will find lts graduates more able to meet competition and find work. 5 FACULTY Principal......

There are twenty-six girls who have been accepted as students in this course. The first of the year, before the equipment arrived, all the girls were taught how to handle knitting and Crocheting needles and how to do fancy stitches of embroidery work. The class is now divided into departments under the titles: Wom- en's Wear, Childrenfs Wear, Undies and Men's Furnishings. The girls are not allowed to make their own clothing during school time but instead they take orders from their friends and teachers. The uniforms of the Food Shop girls, the nurse's uniforms, the linens and bedding for the first aid room and also the curtains for the lavatory were all made by the girls of this shop. Pattern drafting is a required subject. In this class, students design and draft patterns used for slips, dresses, and uniforms. After completing the product, it is put on display for a short time in the hall or in Miss Wooden's of- fice. A style show is planned for May to display to parents and students what has been accomplished by the girls in this shop. , , Trips have been' made to King Manufacturing Company, Standard Garment Company, Advance Glove Company and Redfern Coat Company. Knowledge of different machines to be used in the future are gained from these visitsc Doris Heckert is the representative of the class in the Student Council and Betty Huss the Girlsft Association repre- sentativeq Ulu the future,H Mrs. Von Hoff states, Wwe hope to make coats and suits for men, women and children. All the sewing work for the new Vocational High School for Girls will be taken care of by the girls of the Clothing Shop. We have already drafted patterns for the uniforms to be used in the cafeteria, beauty parlors, and the infirmarycu THE COMMERCIAL ART SHOP Mrs. Henrietta Riter leads the Art girls in their deter- mination to acquire skill and knowledge of commercial art. Work for Commercial Artists includes GRAPHIC ARTS, which is the study of lettering, page lay-outs, design, perspec- tive, freehand sketching and fashion illustration used in the make-up of newspapers, magazines, books, and display cards greeting cards, package goods, and advertising literature, and INTERIOR DECORATIGN, which aims to instruct the students in appreciation of the fundamental principles of art as ap- plied to the furnishings, arrangements and color selections for different types of homes of varying incomes. Trips are frequently made to the Toledo Museum of Art, Some of the exhibits the girls have seen include Swedish Prints, Decorative Craft Work and the Great Lakes Painters' Exhibit. They also saw Mr. Abramofsky, Buffalo artist, exe- cute an oil painting, , The girls have visited the home of Mrs. H. 0. Cameron where they saw the application of design to glass and wall surfaces Cmuralsl . A course of lectures at the Art Museum is on the list of afterwschool activities for all girls of the school who are interested in attaining an art background. The aim of these lectures is to acquaint these girls with art and civilization of other countries. ff, f T 5' 'Q -' -T s a- io THE FOQD SHOP ' The Food Shop, supervised by Mrs. Emily Leister, opened the first of the year with an enrollment of twenty-one girls The subjects taught in relation to this shop are: Eng- lish, Science, consisting of fundamentals of chemistry, biol- ogy, physics and mathematics and Art. ,The girls have different jobs which are to be done on different days, Two days a week their laboratory work con- sists of experiments with different foods.

Some of the opportunities for girls after graduation are: assistants in production work in kitchens, preparing salads, desserts, pastries, vegetables, meats and short orders, retail selling of foodsg food demonstrations, hosts esses and waitresses, catering and counter work., ' Girls who have taken part in the outstanding activities in their groups ere: Genevieve Lewandowski, the Shop presi- dent, Dorothy Randall, Vice-Presidentlof the shop and re- porter of the Gi-Vo-Hi Gazette, and Betty Mae McDonald, Reps resentative of the Student Council. yi' 7, 5 'xx S ' 2 ff V 'K P H ll OFFICE PRACTICE SHOP The Office Practice Shop is one of the oldest shops in the Vocational program for girls, having been established in 1934, at the Old Vocational High School. Approximately 100 girls are enrolled as Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. There are three instructors: M s. Hartnett, Mrs. Buck, and Miss Machobert.

Bartlow under the joint sponsorship of the Toledo Board of Education and the State Board for Vocational Education, rec- ommends provision for preparation for work in the'fields of cosmetology, domestic and institutional service, laundry and dry cleaning service, and some preparation for work in those semi-skilled factory operations open to girls andiwomen in Toledo. The new building is planned to house all such prep- eration.

Power machines to do a variety of jobs will be available. The Commercial Art Shop will have sufficient equipment. With the na w office equipment available it will bexpossible to prepare girls to operate a variety of office machines as well as to enter secretarial practice.

The course in household management will provide preparation for work in homes and institutions on a semi-professional level. A unit of related laundry work will be available to girls in the clothing, food, household management, and pos- sibly in the retail fields. Girls desiring to specialize in laundry service will be given an opportunity to do so. The new shops'will have equipment not only for prepar- ation in the skills of the trade, but also for food and textile testing laboratories. Hygiene and health education will be provided and courses in related work will be added or strengthened. 14 fwf gxfxsm if SOFHGMORES-FOOD A CLOTHING SHOPS ETHEL MAE BERKEL----------Big things come in little packages JEANETTE DUFFEE--ef-ff --4i-----: trees!--:Q-:fee-Oranges squirt JSANETTM FEHGUSON--- ---- '--s- ----- -----Wake up Jeanette ROSELLA FLAUGHER---f,---- ef---4:---fe-2:----Loves cream puffs MARY JEAN GORMLEY----- --Q- -The Baseball fan of the class DOROTHY HOLTONef:-:fee1--ee+--:-ff:- -f:---- -Swing-your partner IRENE HORVATH------- ------ ----Me-4Our little sweet potato EVA HOWELL----------- HELEN MARY JncoB----- -1- --e--- -----The apple of our eye --we--Meat loaf is her favorite dish ELEANOR KUSZ:-f-f:fe-feee--ed---asQ--1-0-H-we-Always on the go GENEVIEVE LEWANDOWSKI-----ee------sew-M--The class jitterbug BETTE MAE MCDONALD----m------- ---- --4--- Cream of the crop ETTA MIXON--e--------e-- PHYLLIS PAEPKE------- WILLE MAE PEARSON------ -Always cooperating with everyone --As quiet as a peanut in a shell --Q-----A Poet and doesn't know it DOROTHY RANDALL------O-----She cooks as well as she sings BETTY RANGER--e------- ---------A--A------Our cream puff MARIQN RICEees ---- ees:--e ee ee :Shrimps and rice are very nice ELEASE susnsosueeeeffe--effeee1:e-:e-- ---- ------Smart Girl DOLORES VOGELSANG------N-------Sugar is sweet and so is she LILLIAN ANSELM ---e- - ---- ------Where did you get those shoes?

G 'First came rings and pins for those who had not ordered them as Juniors. The Yearbook committee made fast and furious attack on the problem of a yearbook without benefit of the boys. The first social activity took place on Friday, March l7, Saint Patrick's night, at Macomher High School. K The affair was appropriately called, nThe Shamrock Shag,W ' On Thursday, April 27, our senior girls and senior boys of Macomber enjoyed themselves at a banquet served in the Macomber Cafeteria, An impromptu dance was held afterward. Then on Friday, May 19, the jitterbugs attending the prom held at the Trilby Log Cabin danced to the lilting music of Lou Waterman. Once again our fair senior maidens and the gallant young men of the Macomber senior class got together on a major activity. But don't think that these diversions were enough to satisfy the girls who were to leave the old Alma Mater very soon. They were determined to have at least one more good time before commencement, so they joined all the other senior classes in the city, and went for a boat ride. This took place on Thursday, June 1. A great day for all, with no sea- sickness. A Finally the night of nights, Commencement. 25 SENIOR PERSONALITIES Here follows e list of the graduating class of 1939, together with the character traits in whioh we see the be- ginnings of interesting personalities.

Angeline Duda, an exfair stewardess who married the pilot resides in California. From there I continued to Oregon where our talkative little Vir- ginia Kornet is happily married CI wonder if she talked him into the ropes.2 In South Dakota I found Josephine Recinow- ski having taken up the job of being a farmerfs wife. In Chicago our little Social Problem of 1939, Kathleen Cameron, is teaching Social Problems and writing books about the sub- ject. The greatest surprise of all came in Detroit where our class president, Virginia McNeil is married to that beau of 1939 with whom she broke her engagement. In my hometown, Toledo, many of the girls are still residing. June 0'Reilly and Betty Pierce have organised a popular dancing school. Esther Brandle, a wer widow is looking for someone as tall as her first.c Genevieve Bailey has been one of the town's leading socielites for years, while Eleanor Weiser manages her own interior decorating shop. Jean Raymond manages her own dress shop on Madison Avenue. Evelyn Schroeder is mar- ried to her boss of 1939. Recently Virginia Meyers was elected a member of Congress and is doing things for Toledo. when I walked into Lasalle's I noticed that Dorothy Smith was still at the orange juice counter. My trip then took me to Buffalo where Betty Druin is married to a meek, little Soul who loves to listen to his wife talk. Jeanne Franke, an ex-model who married the artist, is living in New York City. Rosalind Radeff, is also there, h ving recently ac- quired fame with a book even more famous than 'Gone With The Wind' of 1939. Arnetta Johnson and Rita Dudley have a mime- ograym in downtown New York. At a well known library shop in Boston was Naomi 0'Neil as s librarian. Sudden awakening! No Million! No more visits! But I know the rest' of the class are living up to their Dreams. 29 smxon Au'roaP.APHs ' 30 V' M 3,5 , 'W 4 W 4- 7- ' 1 4 S L 5 3 f lx? 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 F 4 THE OLD VOCATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL f 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 e4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 'Iii -ll' 'I--R' Q i4:i4444444i"444444ii+44444444g:4: 4 444 44 44 444 4 444 44 44 444 -4 444 44 4- 44 444 4 444 44 44 444 4 444 44 44 444 4 4 4 4 4 4,4 4 4 4 4 4 4-4 4 4 4 4 4 The Toledo Vocational High School as we once knew it is no moreg instead, Macomber Vocational High School for Boys was opened last fall, and the steam shovels are even now busily engaged in pre aring the way for the new Girls' school which our classmates'hope to enter next year. The history of the old school was a varied one. Beginning in 1853 as old Central High School, increased by the Scott Manual Training School in l885, the two became known in 1919 a Woodward Technical High School. Nine yeags later in 1928, the Board of Education designated the building as the Vocational High School, to provide training in skilled occupations to the boys and girls in Toledo. The oldest of our present shops is the Commercial Art Shop, begun in 1926, open to both boys and girls. Retail Sel- ling became a separate shop in 1928, when students, mostly girls, were registered for the Retailing Courseg' Five years later the Office Practice shop opened its doors,and has always had to turn away as many applicants as it accepted. In Septem- ber,l938, our two new infant shops appeared to carry on a pre- carious existence until equipment and supplies could be foundq Exciting and momentous memories we carry away of those last few weeks before Christmas,when we packed our possessions in boxes and drawers to move out from the old building. We may watch with regret as we see the old walls come tumbling down, but we thrill with pride that ours is the first class to graduate from the New Vocational High School for Girls. 31 S September Gotober November December SCHOCL CALEHDEB School beginsf 'Gee, itfs lonesome without the boysc Student Council and Girls?

This year it is under the advisorship of Miss Gladys Armstrong. The following are the officers for the year: Madeline Joseph, President Phyllis Kornacki, Vice-President Jane Borkowski, Secretary-Treasurer Rita Durst, Reporter Our officers were chosen at the beginning of the year at a meeting held at the Y.W.C.A. Later, at the home of Betty Druin, nine new members were initiated into the club. Miss Anna Schwertzler, our past advisor, entertained the girls at her cottage in Lakewood. Mrs. Lynette Langenderfer, another past advisor, and Mrs. Weizer were also present. This was the first activity of the year. The girls entertained the Hi-Y Club of Macomber with a dance held in their activities room. Miss Ethel Wooden, Principal , played hostess at a :party held in her home honoring the club. A luncheon was served and Chinese Checkers were played and enjoyed by all who were present. i The club plans a farewell party for the Seniors in May.

' Despite the inconveniences 'and handicaps of the year, the members of the first staff of the Ginvo-Hi, under the able leadership of their editor and advisors, have been able to organize and produce e paper which they hope has been sa- tisfactory to students and teachers. e Since this base been the first year, their chief aim ha been to inform students on activities, both scholastic ind social, of the shop groups and to acquaint the students, by way of interviews, with the principal and teachers. Q The name of the paper, GieVowHi, is e word coined from the phrase nVocational High School for Girlsof It is both suitable and original and was chosen by the GiMVcmHi staff, Due to the efficiency of their -editor, business and circulation managers, they have been able to distribute the paper at a price which enabled all students to subscribe. It is of general opinion that in spite of difficulties which always occur when starting an organization, the Gi-Vo- Hi has progressed rapidly, The students, as well as the staff and advisors, are assured that the GirV0-His will attain still greater success in the future. , f i,um.,.

The foundation for a splendid organization has been firm- ly constructed. The purpose of this club is for internation- el understanding among the youth of this and all other civi- lized countries.

The active 'members representing the Girls' Vocational High School are: Margaret George, Betty Wiseman, and Viola Kennedy. I ' THE MUSEUM CLUB The Museum Club, an after-school activity, was formed through the efforts of Mrs. Riter to supplement our regular school work. Every Friday afternoon, from four o'clock till five, Miss Eula Lee Anderson, of the Toledo Museum of Art gives us a lecture on the art and customs of ancient and me- dieval civilizations. The first two lectures were about Egypt and Greece. There are twenty-three members in this growing club. Ruth Raitz is the reporter and Marjorie Fuller is the assist- ant reporter.

THE GLEE CLUB The Glee Club of the Vocational High School for Girls first came into origin in January l939. The girls joined in large numbers at first because they thought that it would be fun. Later it was realized that the club was not all play, but also hard work. In the end5 only girls who were realky interested stayed. On February 17, 1939, officers were elected and work was begun in earnest. Meetings are held every Friday at 3:00 in the library, where the girls sing with Mrs. Doris Dressel as their competent leader. The meetings are presided over by the president of the club, Stella Wasylyk. Mrs. Kate R. Gailey made e contribution of music books which had been her own during the previous years.
