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 thanks--the faculty. DR. W. E.

3 TIME HONORED 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 education. 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- tory.
