31 Manhattan Thespians This is the first time in several years that M. H. S. has had a drama club. Having no precedents to fol- low, its members have made an organization which is uniquely their own. The membership was determ- ined by a series of tryouts held before a committee of members who had previously been accepted as possessing the necessary qualifications by Mr. Ron- ald Hopkins, their enthusiastic sponsor. These people were Sara Winklep, Dorothy May Summers, Jeanne Jaccard, Martha Baird, Merrill Peterson, and Bill Hines. The officers of the club are Dorothy May Sum- mers, presidentg Betty Ann Faubion, vice-president, Betty Boone, secretary-treasurer, and Merrill Pet- erson, program chairman. The twenty-seven mem- bers as they appear in the picture are first row, left to right, Mary Margaret Arnold, Virginia Holmes, May Louise Johnston, Martha Baird, Barbara Bouck, Virginia Yapp, Jeanne Jaccard, Sara Wink- ler, and Mr. Hopkins, second row, Donis McKeeman, Jean Babcock, Mary Louise Emery, and Betty Boone, third row: Betty Ann Faubion, Patti Mul- ler, Doris Mead, Betty Gross, Thelma Bouck, Mar- garet Mack, Dorothy Kistelman, and Dorothy May Summersg fourth row: John Whitnah, Robert Smith, Valjean Lumb, Paul Engle, Bill Hines, Merrill Pet- erson, and Bill Packer. The climax of the year's activities was the group of one acts given jointly by members of the Thes- pians and dramatic students. The purpose of this entertainment, inaugurated in 1938 by dramatic class members, was to give students interested in this field an opportunity to appear in a production other than one of the full length plays which are given three times a year. The profits made by the offering are used to buy stage equipment. E I Etta Keftte Experiencing its third successful year under thc sponsorship of Miss Lelia Barber, the Etta Kette Club elected the following oflicers: Edith Hanna, president, Barbara Bower, vice-president, Helen Stagg, secretary-treasurer, Ruth Kretzmeier, pro- gram chairman. This year's programs which developed the theme of personal charm and attractiveness, proved to be of great interest and value. Each program empha- sized one or more points essential to the make-up of an attractive individual. Especially enlightening was a talk, "Voice Culture", given by Marianna Kistler, M. H. S. grad, '36, and at present a stu- dent of K. S. C. Emma Caster, from the Primp Shoppe, played up to the girls' interest in cosmetics by demonstrating, with Joanne Aubel as model, the art of applying makeup. The currently popular "Professor Quiz" program-idea was not slighted by this club, as it conducted a "Professor Quiz" con- test at one of its meetings. From the club dues, money was contributed for the buying of Emily Post's latest Book of Etiquette which was placed in the school library. Membership, which was again limited to senior girls, consisted of the following thirty-nine girls: Joanne Aubel, Barbara Bower, Jean Carle, Dorothy Chapman, Evangeline Cerrillo, Althea Conwell, Mar- garet Collins, Mary Dane, Edith Dawley, Martha Emmons, Connie Faith, Martha Goheen, Charlene Gillilan, Leona Hassebroek, Edith Hanna, Harriet Hoffman, Mildred Johnson, Helen Jones, Ruth Kretz- meier, Lela Kortman, Alice King, Rosemary Kelly, Clara Belle Kientz, Claudine Lee, Betty Lancaster, Betty McLeod, Grace Meredith, Helen Miller, Viola Olson, Darlene Parrick, Marian Penley, Eva Smith, Helen Stagg, Esta Schneider, Wilma Jean Shull, Jean Scott, Ileen Schmitt, Patty York, Ruth Yaege.

Later in the year, they had a Christmas party at which time all the girls who hadn't been initiated had to do the clean- ing up, and the dishes. The members have enjoyed many hikes and pic- nics throughout the year. Before a girl can get any awards she must full- fill several requirements, and she must have a cer- tain amount of points.
