Board of Education:
The Board of Education, through its con-
siderate planning and assistance, has played
an important part in the history of the sen-
ior class. Those who served on the Man-
hattan Board of Education during the school
term of 1938-1939 are Mr. P. J. Newman,
presidentg Mr. Ray H. Pollom, vice-presi-
dent, Mr. R. W. Babcock, Mr. C. H. Guth-
rie, Dr. K. F. Bascom, Miss Clara Spilman,
and Dr. W. E- Sheffer.
The class of '39 extend to the Board their
sincere appreciation for all the help and
cooperation it has given them during their
entire schooling in Manhattan schools.
To the Faculty:
In years to come, we of the class of '39 shall
remember, not the petty details of learning,
not the events which are so all important
to us now, not the books which we've read
or the things we've seen--but people. And
high in our memories of people we have
known and liked will be our teachers, be-
cause they are the ones who have led and
guided us. They are the ones that helped
make our school years happy and full of
meaning. They are the ones that inspired
us to become better citizens and great men
and women. When we look back upon our
school years we shall have cause to be glad
that we had so manv teachers for our
guides and friends.
And so the class of '39 remembers and

Superintendent of Schools

The particular appropriatness of dedicating the
Blue M to Mr. Earl G. Darby is threefold: it lies
not only in the fact that Mr. Darby has been a
teacher in Manhattan High School since 1923, and
has during all those years given excellent training in
all kinds of wood-working and in mechanical draw-
ingg but alone because he has been a definite instru-
ment in character building among the students who
have worked with him, and in his shop, but also it
it fitting that we extend him this honor because he
is a product of Manhattan High School, and what's
more, a member of the first class to attend classes
in this building.
This being the twenty-fifth annversary of the
first commencement held in this building f1914J,and
this BLUE M being an anniversary issue, makes the
staff proud to dedicate it to one who has been con-
nected in such a splendid manner with the develop-
ments, the successes, and the general improvement
of Manhatta High School.
It was in the fall of 1913 that Mr. Darby entered
Manhattan High School. Working his way through
school delayed his graduation some, and a year in
the navy intervened between high school and col-
lege. He taught one year during his college career
and upon being graduated from K. S. C. in 1923,
obtained a teaching position in M. H. S. In the
sixteen years since that time, Mr. Darby has seen
many things happen in M. H. S.g has known many
boysg has been an instrument in developing self-re-
'iance, enlarging capacities and instilling qualities
f sterling character in the lives of countless num-
bers of individuals in a most effectual manner. Mr.
Darby understands youth and puts into practical
ope1'ation very workable theories regarding their
His shop one of the best equipped wood-working
shops in Kansas is always open for anyone's use:
his knowledge and skill as a master workman he
glady shares with those who ask him: he has the
knack of letting those who come to him he they stu-
dents or adults do their own work all the while chal-
lenging them to do the best they can with the job
at hand. Evidence of the effectiveness of his inspi-
ration among his students are the large and elab-
orate pieces of furniture they make now. Five years
ago for a student to attempt the construction of a
bedstead a vanity dresser, a desk or a gate-leg table,
to say nothing of buffets, dining tables, and many in-
tricacies such as in-lay work, was the unusual-al-
most the unheard of thing. Mr. Darby's own con-
struction of entire suites of furniture, and the dem-
ocratic spirit of individual choices and development
which pervades his shop have resulted in the mak-
ing of many beautiful pieces of work as a regular
feature of the achievements of his boys.
Mr. Darby has the respect of his students, he has
their friendship, he is a true teacher in every sense
of the word, and we are proud here and now to do
him the honor of dedicating this Blue M to him as
a gesture of recognition of the many years of fine,
constructive work he has done among students in
Manhattan High School's twenty-five years of his-
