To the Class of 1957 lnspired by the thought ot employment after school days are over you entered Whitney. Business was your goal. You came here for business training but undoubtedly busy-ness has pulled you through to success. You have learned to do better those things you will do anyway, because most work is made up of a multiplicity of simple skills. As the class of 7957 goes into the busy world, the good wishes of the faculty go with you. We trust that busy-ness will not keep you so occupied that you will not return to us with the story of your success. Meanwhile remember in the words of the famous English bard, "To business that we love we rise betime and go to't with delight." Ethel Wooden Principal

ibeokcafion The class of 1957 lovingly dedicates their First Lady to one of Whitney's pioneers, Mrs. Elizabeth VonHoff. ln Rheinland, Germany, lived a large family of thirteen boys and one girl. The only girl in this family was Elizabeth Hoppe, only two of the boys are now living. When Mrs. VonHoff was four a grandmother taught her to knit and crochet. During summer and winter after classes between the ages of six and fourteen, she attended a finishing school. There she studied needle- work for two hours a day. German boys and girls go to school six days a week with four weeks' vacation during the summer. The hours are from eight o'clock in the morning until twelve noon and from one-thirty in the afternoon until four. Saturday school was only opened a half day. Mrs. VonHoff concentrated on handwork, art, nature study, and getting ac- quainted with others. After public and high school, Mrs. VonHoff attended Froebel Seminary and Frederick Wilhelm College in Berlin. Later she served one year as an apprentice in Cologne. Mrs. VonHoff was married in Germany and has a daughter Lieselotte Adelheid Cordier. The Cordiers have a four-year-old, Lisa, to whom Oma is devoted. In November, 1916, the VonHoffs came to Toledo. She taught at the Young Men's Christian Association and Ursuline Academy. Her first job for the Board of Education in 1919 consisted of teaching adult education at Scott, Gunckel, Libbey, and a total of twenty-eight other schools and has taught night school since 1923. For three months in New York she studied drafting, pattern making, and designing, and obtained her vocational de- gree at the University here. Mrs. VonHoff is truly a pioneer, having been with us ever since there was a Whitney. She taught in the old Vocational Building lwhere the library now standsl, Webster, and moved to the present edifice in February 4, 1940. Needle work, traveling, and flowers make up Mrs. VonHoff's hobbies. She prefers living flowers to cut ones. Traveling across the ocean fourteen times always taking a different route, she has enioyed revisiting her mother and homeland. Three years ago in December, taking her first plane trip, she returned to Germany for a final visit with her mother, who has since passed away. Busy teenagers do not see how Mrs. VonHoff, teaching school lday and nightl, can do so many other things. May the graduates of 1957 profit by her example of a good life well spent and may Mrs. VonHoff enioy years of well-earned leisure to pursue her many interests.
