The object of this staff was to present a book, each page of which you 
might be pleased to read. The presenting of this book to you is our pleasure.

To whom it may concern 

T HE time has come, the speaker said, 
to touch on many things, on chewing 
gum and sealing wax, on cabbages and 
kings. With one eye on the calendar 
and the other on the clock, this reminds 
us of the wonderful advantages that 
we seniors and our fellow students have 
received and are receiving from the 
patrons of our school. Through the 
abundance and wealth of our rich agri¬ 
cultural and industrial center, they are 
making it possible for each and every 
one of us to achieve our ambitions by 
furnishing us with an academic educa¬ 
tion in preparation for our life work.

H AGERSTOWN is mounted in an exquisite 
setting—that of the valley. Upon entering 
or leaving the town, visitors are greatly im¬ 
pressed by the rolling, fertile land, the peace¬ 
ful scenery, and the obvious beauty which 
Nature, in her kindest mood, bestowed upon 
the district. Many of the shaded streets have 
the same appeal to the stranger that the misty, 
remote, cobbled lanes of the Old World have 
for the admiring foreigner. Unlike the small 
European towns, Hagerstown is a community 
which was destined not only to thrive and 
prosper, but one whose latchstring was al¬ 
ways to hang on the outside and whose 
atmosphere of welcome was ever to linger 
within the verdant valley. 

With the vanishing of the wilderness, the 
spirit of progress steadily increased and its 
keepers were wont to hand it down as her¬ 
itage to the coming generation. 

Hagerstown’s importance, in the early days, 
was vested in the fact that it was the terminal 
of the well-known Whitewater Canal, which 
extended from Cincinnati. The old baseball 
held of the Perfect Circle Company was the 
spot where the boats turned around. 

Lake Whitewater and Camp Wapa Karne- 
ga, gracious gift of Ralph Teetor and haven 
of Boy Scouts, was formerly the source of 
ice for the Crystal Ice Company of Cincin¬ 
nati, and still affords great fun for the youth 
of the town when King Winter blows his icy 
breath across its beautiful surface. 

“Books are friends. Come, let us read.” 
That is, indeed, an appropriate sentence in 
regard to the modern, well-equipped library, 
which was a gift to the community from 
Charles N. Teetor and family. Hagerstown’s 
citizens evidently have intellectual leanings 
as evidenced by the circulation of books of 
the library. The total circulation for 1933 
was 30,968. There are 7,113 books in the li¬ 
brary and approximately thirty-eight differ¬ 
ent kinds of magazines. The library is visited 
by both young. and old, and it is a fitting 
monument to the unselfish interest in the 

community and the deep concern for the wel¬ 
fare of its citizens. 

The greatest industry that Hagerstown has 
ever known is the Perfect Circle Company, 
manufacturers of Perfect Circle Piston Rings. 
These rings are sold in every state in the 
Union and are available in fifty-seven coun¬ 
tries of the world. The company’s name is 
familiar everywhere, and its new radio pro¬ 
gram, “Rings of Melody,” broadcasts its 
fame into many homes. 

Upon retirement from the Perfect Circle 
Company, Frank Teetor purchased the Light 
Inspection Car manufacturing division and 
designed a motor car which has proved su¬ 
perior to other cars of its type, because it is 
light, practically free from vibration, and 

The cause of such proud and pleasant ex¬ 
pressions on the faces of Hagerstown citizens 
is due to the new and modern post office 
which was made possible by the increased mail 
of the Perfect Circle Company, interested 
citizens and the work of an up-to-date post¬ 
master, Charles F. Porter. Hagerstown is the 
smallest town in the U. S. to have had a first- 
class post office, and approximately 7,000 let¬ 
ters of first-class mail go through the post 
office weekly. The building is the object of 
much admiration to everyone who sees it. 

Someone has said, “We are all overgrown 
children,” and since Abbott’s Candy Shop is 
as popular with adults as with children, there 
is truth in this saying. Abbott’s delicious 
cream chocolates, butterscotch and English 
toffee are treats that are most welcome in 
every home. The popular candy shop is not 
only patronized by local residents but has 
much business in other cities. 

The life of any town is not complete with¬ 
out its clubs. In this respect Hagerstown is 
well served, judging from the number of well- 
organized and worth-while clubs for both men 
and women. The League of Women Voters is 
an active organization which is interested in 
politics, and it offers many opportunities for 
the study of present-day political problems. 
The Psi Iota Xi sorority is a state organiza¬ 
tion. It has received the cup for two years 
for having the most achievements. 

The Progressive Club is the donor of the 
cup presented to the outstanding senior girl. 


Both it and the History Club are active in the 
interests of current affairs and accomplish 
much in educating their members in the mod¬ 
ern way of overcoming vital problems. 

The Business Men’s Club, which is an out¬ 
growth of the Lions Club, is a most worthy 
organization. It meets weekly for luncheon 
and discusses problems of the business world. 
It is rapidly advancing and is doing much 
for the welfare of the citizenry. 

The worthiness of the church is treasured 
in any city and it is necessary for the well¬ 
being of any community. Hagerstown’s 
churches are exceedingly active in the reli¬ 
gious life of the city, and they are recognized 
as strongholds of the community. 

The schools are quite different from those 
of the “good ol’ days.” A modern program 
of education is taught to the 600 students 
by well-trained instructors. Rural students, 
instead of walking, ride to school in busses. 
The beauty, neatness and cleanliness of both 
grade and high schools have added local 

charm. The attractive and well-kept grounds 
are the subject of much favorable comment. 

A golfer’s paradise is the Hartley Hills 
country club. The location is one of natural 
beauty, with rolling fairways and wooded 
spots which prove more than interesting to 
the golfer. In its third year of existence, it 
was pronounced by visitors as one of the finest 
and most interesting courses of the state. The 
clubhouse is one of attractiveness, and it is 
a very desirable place for parties and dances. 

The boys’ and girls’ 4-H clubs and the 
active Farm Bureau are important factors in 
the agricultural development of the district. 
There are many modern, up-to-date farm 
homes and farmers who are wide awake to 
the present needs in agriculture. 

Therefore—to Progress—the development 
of every potential power—the advancement 
of every practical science—the achievement of 
every desired aim—the nineteen thirty-four 
Epitome is dedicated.

Craciousness Adds Charm 

G IRLS chatting in an amiable manner with 
one another, but seemingly impatient for 
the meeting to be called to order, eager to go 
on with their quest for knowledge, right, and 
sincerity, listening attentively to every pro¬ 
gram.—That’s the Girl Reserves! 

Like the Christians, who many years ago 
traveled to the Holy Land under the banner 
of the cross, the Girl Reserves are engaged in 
a Crusade. Their purpose is to “Follow the 
Gleam of Christ.” 

The Initiation service, held on October 
fourth, was very solemn and impressive. Each 
girl, “following the gleam” of a lighted can¬ 
dle, pledged herself as a Girl Reserve to the 
following code: 

Gracious in Manner 
Impartial in Judgment 
Ready for Service 
Loyal to Friends 
Reaching toward the Best 
Earnest in Purpose 

Seeing the Beautiful 
Eager for Knowledge 
Reverent to God 
Victorious over Self 
Ever Dependable 
Sincere at All Times 

The code was clearly explained by Rosa¬ 
mond Brooks at the first meeting. There 
were 16 new members at this meeting, making 
a total of 81 members in the organization. 

The annual Mother-Daughter tea, held 
Wednesday, October 4, was enjoyed by many 
of the girls’ mothers and teachers. 

Approximately two hundred and forty at¬ 
tended the annual Mother-Daughter banquet 
which was held January 16 in the high school 
auditorium. Mrs. Harriet Bard, from Con- 
nersville, gave a book talk on “Little Wom¬ 
en,” and Eugene Teytor entertained with 
marimba solos. 

'■'H" ?. 

During January and February each girl 
had a chance to appear in the programs given 
by each class. Two events which occurred late 
in the club calendar were the Regional Girl 
Reserve Conference, which was held at Rich¬ 
mond, and the “Farewell” to senior members. 




Look for Leaders in Hi-Y 

A NY organization is not complete without 
its deal of fun. Of course almost all of 
this fun is gained from the accomplishment 
of work, planning of programs, and many 
other activities included in the routine of 
organizations. The Hi-Y club of the high 
school carried out its work in a worth-while 
manner, and yet its members will keep in 
their minds the remembrances of the good 
times they all experienced during the year. 

Under the leadership of Virgil Heniser, 
this year marked one of the most progressive 
years of the Hi-Y since it has been established. 
The club was first organized by Mr. W. J. 
Stahr on October 7, 1923. 

The success and progress of the club were 
probably due to the fact that its purpose and 
the slogan were stressed in all of the programs 
given during the year. 

At the first of the year each member who 
came into the club pledged to create, main¬ 
tain, and extend throughout the school and 
community high standards of Christian char¬ 
acter, and to stand for clean scholarship, and 
clean living. At the beginning of the year, 
the club put on a book sale, which was very 
helpful to those students needing books. 

The months of November and December 
were busy ones for the club. On November 
20, the Father and Son Banquet was given. 
The speaker for the occasion was Dr. Frank 
Slutz of Dayton. At Christmas the club, with 
the Girl Reserves, gave a very interesting 
chapel program. Logan Smith, Eugene Drake, 
Jim Stamm, Eugene Foust, Lowell Lester, 
Irvin Miller, Jim Butner, and Mr. Heniser 
attended the Older Boys’ Conference held 
December 1, 2, 3, at Michigan City. In March 
the club entertained the Regional Older Boys’ 

April marked the close of a very success¬ 
ful year under the direction of the following 
capable officers: president, Gene Drake; vice- 
president, James Hartig; secretary, Lowell 
Lester; treasurer, Harold Allen.

Perplexities a Pleasure 

I ATIN—how varied are the thoughts which 
flash through our minds when that word 
is mentioned! No doubt most of us who have 
never familiarized ourselves with this ancient 
language have a mental vision of the diffi¬ 
culties of it as portrayed by the expression 
on the faces of those who have studied the 
language and experienced its perplexities. 
Such expressions of mental agony were absent 
from the faces of the Latin classes this year, 
because they gained a thorough understanding 
of the language and thus enjoyed it very 

There were sixteen students enrolled in the 
Latin classes, eight in the first year class and 
eight in the second year class. The first year 
class enjoyed its study to such a degree that 
most of the students plan to enlarge their 
scope of the speech of ancient Rome by tak¬ 

ing second year Latin. They discovered that 
much of the English language is derived from 
Latin and this fact made their work more 

To facilitate the learning of this language, 
the class made posters on the conjugation of 
verbs, declension of nouns, and use of prepo¬ 
sitions. These posters, according to the mem¬ 
bers of the class, proved very instrumental in 
helping to keep previously learned Latin in 

The second year students were fortunate 
in having for their use a new book written 
by Berry and Lee, in which they studied the 
mythology of the old countries. The story of 
the Argonauts, continuous story of the ad¬ 
ventures of Jason, was especially enjoyed. 

The opinion of the second year students 
concerning Latin was that it was much more 
difficult than first year work, but this is true 
of anything worth while. Miss Alida Morris 
was the Latin teacher. 




Wonder in Dreams 

B EGINNERS are thrilled, as are shorthand 
students, for now they have a new means 
of communication. Everyone who finds that 
personal letter cannot read and understand it. 

Then, too, the study of Spanish is in it¬ 
self interesting, for the lessons are beautiful 
descriptive stories and legends of old Spain. 
They remind one of that old refrain, Air Cas¬ 
tles in Spain. 

The plan to “learn your Spanish” which 
the second year students enjoyed most and 
derived the most benefit from was the three 
and five minute informal talks given by them 
to the class. These talks were unusual. Sub¬ 
jects which were chosen were the activities of 
farm, grocery, home, meat market, fruit and 
vegetable stands, library, and school. Con¬ 
versational discussion then took place about 
the talk just given by the student, all of which 
was, of course, in Spanish. 

As someone put it, “You either get or you 
don’t get Spanish”; therefore it takes time 
and study to be a fiuent speaker of this lan¬ 

Looks of doubt, smiles of uncertainty, and 
a satisfied “I know” expression could be 
found during class recitation. 

Songs played a prominent part in the mas¬ 
tering of this subject. Some really beautiful 
old tunes and rhymes were among those 
taught. Favorites seemed to be “La Paloma,” 
“La Golandrina,” and “Marchita.” Good 
voices were found in the class and several 
harmonious combinations were worked out. 
Not only did the students sing them, but also 
studied them for their historical background. 

Always an enthusiastic group start Spanish 
I but Spanish II is more quiet until it is 
well started and then others wish that they, 
too, had taken the second year of that an¬ 
cient, yet widely used, dependable language 
of today. 

Principal Joe R. Craw was the instructor.

Make Ourselves Attractive 

T HE old adage, “Experience is the best 
teacher,” is very applicable to the Home 
Economics Class. The students who enroll in 
this class have not only the advantage of 
gaining knowledge from the authorities who 
have written their textbooks, but they have 
also the pleasure of putting this instruction 
to a practical use in the kitchen and sewing 

This was especially true of the four special 
advanced students. These four senior girls 
studied special problems in reference to home 
economics and as a result increased their abil¬ 
ity to the extent that they became capable 
in this work. These girls carried out projects 
in the following manner: 

They went to Indianapolis and purchased 
their commencement clothing; they made 
health posters to encourage better health 
habits; they helped the advanced class in man¬ 

aging the cafeteria; and thus learned how to 
prepare well-balanced lunches. 

They conducted a health drive in the third 
and fourth grades in order to see whether 
the girls and boys were the better observers 
of good health rules and—here’s a point in 
favor of the weaker sex—the girls won the 
drive by a few points. 

The Freshman Class was divided into two 
sections, which gave a class party, November 
18, at the high school. This class gave a play 
in chapel, and if the examples given in this 
play were followed by the student body, 
every person’s manners would be improved. 

The advanced class took field trips to Cam¬ 
bridge City, Richmond, and to a canning fac¬ 
tory. These trips were of interest to all. 

The 34 students enrolled in these three sec¬ 
tions under the leadership of Miss Gertrude 
Adams made rapid progress and gained thor¬ 
ough understanding of the following appro¬ 
priate quotation: “The beauty of the home is 
order, the blessing of the home is content¬ 
ment, and the glory of the home is hospital¬ 




Constructive Planning Is Our Job 

/''UDDAP Nic, Haw Maude, Gee Jim, we’re 
in a hurry—it looks like rain and this 
corn has to be plowed. Yes, this is the agri¬ 
cultural class. 

Under Mr. Spuller’s patient guidance the 
boys’ time was occupied by doing several dif¬ 
ferent projects—everything from building 
trailers to studying the life habits of insects! 

Thirty-seven boys enrolled in this course, 
twenty freshmen and sophomores, and seven¬ 
teen juniors and seniors. They gave three 
demonstrations, enjoyed educational trips to 
Cincinnati, Richmond, and Indianapolis, kept 
farm records on 1,680 acres, raised 114 acres 
of corn, cared for 600 feeding pigs, and kept 
monthly production records on 85 cows, be¬ 
sides many other interesting projects. 

In the shop work the boys fitted handles 
in axes, hammers, hatchets, etc., gummed and 
filed saws, and repaired several sets of har¬ 
ness. The boys were very busy and deserved 
great praise for the quality of the work. 
They saved “Dad” many dollars by the shop 
work; consequently “Dad” approved of the 
department and all of its economical policies. 

Forty-nine boys were in the 4-H Club with 
a 94% finish. The freshmen and sophomores 
kept production records of their poultry, 
corn, hog, and cattle projects. Some kept 
records of their entire home farm while others 
kept charts of the daily livestock market. Be¬ 
cause of the NRA codes and plans the farmers 
had time to attend the night school, held in 
the high school building December 6 to Febru¬ 
ary 7, conducted by Mr. Spuller and vocation¬ 
al boys. The school offered courses in farm 
shop work, soil improvement, liming, legumes, 
and fertilizers. It was a treat to the farmers 
to be permitted to bring samples of the soil 
from their farm and have it tested for acidity, 
and also to bring farm tools to the shop to 
repair them. The farmers who attended ap¬ 
preciated the expert instruction given them.

United We Help Print a Paper 

W HEN you’re feeling sort of blue, nothing 
else to do, just read what somebody else 
is doing. The task of furnishing you this news 
was the work of the Exponent staff. 

Editor and assistant editor were at the head 
of this group of students who were character¬ 
ized by “Tell me all you know,” “What did 
3 T ou do Wednesday night?” “Be sure to have 
that written by Tuesday,” “Oh, won’t you 
please write that?” “It’s your duty, you 
know.” “You say ‘Yellow Shadow’ is the 
name of it?” “Gee, that should make an 
excellent write-up,” “Remember the feature 
stories that were written for ‘Applesauce’?” 
“Don’t forget to mention the number who 
took that tour to Indianapolis, you might 
even list their names,” “Is this the correct 
way to spell your name?” 

When it comes to feature writing even the 
revered Webster didn’t have so much on this 

group in the matter of unique words that just 
completed the unusual description to a “T.” 
Feature writing, you see, was one of the spe¬ 
cial hobbies of the staff members. Some good 
stories were turned out too, for instance about 
Hirshburg and his pictures, doings of the 
Epitome Staff, better speech class, and even 
about the combined odors resulting from the 
redecoration of our Alma Mater and those 
wafting through the doors and up the hall 
from the—you guessed it—the kitchen. 

Society news was an old stand-by. Of course 
not any high school news is complete without 
athletics, so old Hagerstown was “Johnnie on 
the spot” with her tiasliy report of the suc¬ 
cessful as well as, shall we admit it, losing 

The Girl Reserves, Hi-Y, Home Economics 
and Agriculture, in addition to each class, 
had its representatives on the staff. Just a 
moment, the typists were there also. They 
mean so much in any literary undertaking. 

The staff seemed to be one of the best ever, 
for an average of nine articles was printed 
in the Exponent each week. 




Roll Call a Success 

I F you are interested in the work of schools 
in foreign countries, in relief work in case 
of emergencies, such as fires, floods or earth¬ 
quakes or in the annual roll call, just ask 
any member of the Red Cross organization to 
tell you about them. The members have been 
especially active, and if the size of a club or 
organization is one test of its merit, the Red 
Cross might have a right to feel the ‘‘least bit 
conceited” because 78 students joined at the 
beginning of the school year. 

Many shoes were in need of repair at the 
close of the roll call for senior Red Cross 
members, which was held from November 11 
to November 30, because the loyal members, 
under the direction of Miss Alida Morris, 
canvassed the entire town and solicited mem¬ 

bers. They obtained 124 subscribers and sev¬ 
eral donations, making a total of $186.85, a 
new record. 

In the early fall, a Red Cross council was 
appointed. Officers of this council were: 
president, Elizabeth Bruce; vice-president, 
Anne Faurot; secretary, Betty Teetor; and 
reporter, Effie Foulke. 

The Red Cross is truly a worthy organiza¬ 
tion in any school. It has many benefits for 
the members. For instance, in the case of roll 
call soliciting, the student learns the proper 
way to approach a prospective member and 
how to clearly explain why he should join. 
He also learns the satisfaction of a subscrip¬ 
tion and the disappointment of a refusal. 

The real worth of the organization was the 
satisfaction and happiness gained from know¬ 
ing that, as a member, each contributed his 
share to the welfare of the nation. 


Wig 1934 

Can you imagine someone saying they 
can’t read their own writing? Well, it’s not 
surprising to the shorthand class at all. You 
can make the funniest looking little curly- 
ingques and yet each one has a meaning. The 
trouble is remembering the meaning of the 
little dash, curve, etc. 

At the beginning of the second semester. 
Miss Van Horn dictated letters to the ad¬ 
vanced class of 120 words a minute. It doesn’t 
seem possible that you could get every word 
that was said. 


Accuracy Always 

W E ’LL bet our best hats that not a waste 
paper basket in the school fills up as 
quickly as the one in the typing room. If you 
should step into the room and see a student 
completing an exercise, you would think he 
was doing it for a slow motion picture. But 
we can’t even begin to describe them when 
they’re on the last line of the exercise and 
then make an error. That’s when one’s Span¬ 
ish and Latin come in handy. My, and the 
noise they do make! In fact there’s so much 
noise that one class didn’t hear the fire bell 
ring. But there’s one good thing about that. 
You can make a lot of noise and points aren’t 
taken off. 

Ready, go! Those were the words of Miss 
Van Horn when a contest was held for the 
advanced students in order that they might 
show their ability and efficiency. Pins were 
given as rewards. 

Whenever you feel like doing something 
accurate, just do a little bookkeeping. It’s 
just loads of fun until you try to balance 
your books and find they’re out of balance 
about $143.27. You would think that some of 
the seniors were first-graders when you see 
them counting on their fingers. But they 
usually get them right, unless they see double 
or count one finger twice. The one thing that 
Miss Van Horn stressed in the commercial 
course was ACCURACY! first, last, and 



Ch oose a Feature Here For Y our 

Everything from radium to radishes is 
studied in the science department of the high 

In room 22 every day except laboratory 
day you could see students of the Physics 
Class feverishly trying to understand the 
theory of light or other physical phenomenon. 
Some were poring over the penciled agonies 
of former students, or others were studiously 
reading the explanation of the author. On 
days in the laboratory, the scene was quite 
different. Test tubes here, electric motors 
there, calorimeters, magnets and other scien¬ 
tific paraphernalia were being experimented 
upon to see why they behave as they do. 
Students in groups of four worked at separate 
tables and under the capable supervision of 
Mr. Ileniser, looked forward to days in the 
Physics laboratory. 

The argument, that we have to live; there¬ 
fore why not learn how to live an enjoyable 
life was carried out in the Health Education 
Class. This course deals with the structure, 
function, and hygiene of the human body, and 
special stress was placed on the prevention 
rather than the cure of disease. From the 
laughs that issued from Room 21, this course 
which was aLso taught by Mr. Heniser must 
have been entertaining as well as instructive. 

A reorganization of the Physical Geography 
Class took place this year. It became a study 
of the physical, economic, and regional con¬ 
ditions of the earth and also included a sur¬ 
vey of the U. S. Science in the study of na¬ 
ture. Since we are invariably associated with 
nature, it proves beneficial to have a knowl¬ 
edge of any phase of science. The students 
enrolled in the science courses in the high 
school will not, of course, all be future 
Edisons, Einsteins, or Burbanks, vet they will, 
in a measure, enjoy life more fully because of 
the fact that they understand what was for¬ 
merly unsolvable mysteries of nature.

Not Jazz But Music 

G ET tuned up now.Saxophones, we’re 

playing classical music not jazz.get 

those tone volumes balanced.What? you 

say you broke a violin string? Well, now’s 
a fine time to have something wrong with it. 

.All ready now.One, two, one, 

two.A piercing crescendo of violins 

joined by the lower note of other stringed 
and wind instruments, then the roll of a drum 
and that’s an hour of orchestra. The com¬ 
bined orchestra shown below consisted of 
thirty-six members, twenty-five senior high 
school members and eleven junior high school 
members. The orchestra studied various in¬ 

strumental selections in an effort to cultivate 
their musical outlook. 

The spirit of the club Avas that of coopera¬ 
tion and joy in working together and was 
perhaps the nucleus of their splendid prog¬ 
ress. The work has been exceedingly interest¬ 
ing for the members, and their productions 
have been much appreciated and have no 
doubt enriched the lives of the members. 

This orchestra, an important activity of the 
cultural curriculum of the school and, under 
the baton of its able leader, Miss Flossy Neff, 
played on a number of occasions for Farm 
Bureau meetings, class plays, and chapel pro¬ 
grams, and took part in the annual spring 

‘ ‘ Lightlier move the minutes edged with 
music. ’ ’ 




A Treal for Public Performance 

T IPS—tongue—tip o’ the teeth um pa pa, 
mi-mi-mi-do-mi-sol-clo — This is probably 
unintelligible to you, but to the members of 
the chorus those tuning up exercises were a 
highly valuable means of getting their voices 
in tune and harmony for singing. It was also 
one of the ways to avoid that short sentence, 
“Oh, you are flatting in that song,” which 
issued from the lips of Miss Neff, when a song 
was being sung the a ’cappella method, a very 
difficult type of vocalization without accom¬ 

The three songs, “America, the Beautiful,” 
“Who’s That A’calling,” and “Shortnin’ 
Bread,” a humorous negro selection, which 
were presented in the Thanksgiving program, 
were the results of several hard practices by 
members of the chorus. But there was fun 

in each practice, particularly in the one when 
the train whistle entered into competition 
with the sopranos as they were attempting to 
reach high “c.” 

In contrast to the joyfulness of the Thanks¬ 
giving program, the Christmas cantata, which 
was presented on the evening of December 
twenty-first, was one of impressive dignity 
and was beautiful both in rendition and set¬ 
ting. One of the features of the program was 
the candle light procession. 

The personnel of the chorus included four 
tenors, ten basses, eleven altos, twenty so¬ 
pranos, and Eleanor Romine, the faithful and 
patient accompanist, making a total of 46 
members in the chorus. 

Perhaps each member of the organization 
was more interested in conversing with his 
neighbor than in his love for music at the 
beginning of the year, but this was gradually 
remedied and resulted in a harmonious, co¬ 
operative group of young singers.

to Rollo Jenkins, an industrious young man 
who looked carefully at every penny before 
he spent it. 

Obstacle number two was in the form of 
Hazel’s father who happened to be well 
pleased with Rollo. As might be gathered 
Hazel and Rollo had a spat about Bill with 
the result that the spreader of a little sun¬ 
shine won the girl. The scene in which Bill 
played up to the enormous cost of married 
life and talked Rollo right out of his engage¬ 
ment was extremely comical. He married the 
girl with just six dollars in his pocket and 
the grim belief that two can live as cheaply 
as one, for talk is cheap, and Bill was no 
lazy linguist. This amusing play scored a 
great hit for it contained many a laugh and a 
treat or two. 

You Don't Want to MarrX) That Girl 

E VERYONE has experienced that unde- 
scribable “chill” or thrill running up 
and down his spine when the curtain begins 
to rise on a play. No doubt the actors and 
actresses in the play undergo more chills than 
they do thrills, especially if they have not had 
the advantage of an excellent play coach. 

The cast for the senior play had the bene¬ 
fit of the capable coaching of Miss Delight 
Collins and as a result, produced a play of 
merit, and entertainment for the audience. 
The play “ Applesauce ” was presented on 
Wednesday and Thursday evenings, Novem¬ 
ber 8-9. It was a three act comedy written by 
Barry Conners. It was originally produced 
by Richard Herndon at the Ambassador 
Theatre, N.Y. Bill McAllister was that serene 
and envied type of youth who could get 
along quite well without working. His chief 
stock in trade, “applesauce” managed to get 
for him all the essentials of life, even a girl. 
The main obstacle for Bill to overcome was 
the fact that Hazel was engaged to be married 

Acts one and two took place in the Robin¬ 
son’s living room. Act three was in Hazel 
and Bill’s home over the drug store. The 
cast for the play was as follows: Ma Robin¬ 
son, Audrey Marlatt, Hazel Robinson, Marion 
Hartley, Jenny Baldwin, Mary Hall, Pa 
Robinson, Myron Simpson, Rollo Jenkins, 
Mark Werldng, Bill McAllister, Eugene 
Drake, Matt McAllister, Logan Smith. 




You re All Under Suspect Notv" 

THE Yellow Shadow, in all its mystery made 
1 its debut Wednesday, February 14. The 
outstanding part about it was that it took 
well enough to draw a large audience the 
second night, Thursday, February 15. Of 
course it was the juniors’ initial attempt at 
producing a play and “congratulations, old 
pals” are due them. Let us in giving best 
wishes remember the coach, Miss Delight Col¬ 
lins. My, the patience with which she did her 
part during those weeks of practice! 

Clark Willard is credited as the originator 
of the gilley-loo bird, lady coroners, and se¬ 
cret hiding places, meaning the yellow shadow. 

Outside, it was one of those dark, rainy, 
and stormy nights; inside was an old house¬ 
keeper, who talked in morbid monotones. 
Shots were heard and a murdered man was 
seen lying on the living room floor of the old 
Viewcrest Lodge. Such was the impressive 
curtain-rising scene. Soon the heiress and her 
friends arrived. Hot on the trail was the 
coroner and the sheriff. One might think that 
with all of the authorities and friends the 
mystery would be solved, but not so. 

More complex and unsolvable events oc¬ 
curred. A Chinaman presented himself. More 
things happened than the Sherlock Holmes of 
the play could comprehend. With Jed’s out¬ 

bursts of “creeping crocodiles” — “leaping 
lizards”—“yellow shadows”—“racing rats” 
—“We are made of clay, ashes, and dust”— 
we will skip over the girls’ screams and tell 
you how it all came out. The murdered man 
proved to be none other than Gerald Lloyd, 
reporter for the Seattle Tribune, who had 
been secretly connected with Herbert, a co¬ 
reporter. If you were present at either per¬ 
formance, you might have heard something 
like this: 

Mrs. Knose: “Betty, dear, how did you 
do it?” 

Betty: “Why, mother, didn’t you see my 
knees knocking?” 

Mr. Lester: “Son, I’m proud of you.” 

Lowell: “Thanks, dad.” 

Annabelle: “Well, Lloyd, I would not have 
thought it of you.” 

Lloyd: “Thanks, sis, that’s all right.” 

Mr. Cain: “They were exceptional for ama- 
tures, weren’t they?” 

Mr. Lester: “Yes, that was pure acting.” 

Mrs. McCurdy: “Yes, and did you notice 
how clever and harmonious the stage was 
set ? ” 

Miss Collins: “I know it. They certainly 
did work hard to have it just exactly proper.” 

The cast, ushers, stage managers, advertis¬ 
ing staff, and property managers, too, deserve

Sure! You’ve guessed it—It’s the Girls’ 
Glee Club tuning up for class. And what 
times they have! Isn’t it funny how girls can 
stop talking long enough to sing ? Maybe they 
think they can express a little of their charm 
—in a sing songy method instead of the 
usual rattling off—(wonder if they know 
there’s very little difference?) 

You can get the number of this club. It’s 
easy to remember—sure, you’re right again— 
it’s seven. It happens that there are seven 
first sopranos, seven second sopranos, and 
seven altos. From these a clever quartet was 
organized. The quartet consisted of Rosamond 
Brooks, Eleneida Craig, Elizabeth Bruce, and 
Marian Brumback. They sang two numbers 
on the Thanksgiving program, “From the 
Land of the Sky Blue Waters,” and “Praise 
Waiteth for Thee.” 

They did some very cooperative work with 
their instructor, Miss Neff, to contribute a 
part in the annual spring festival and the 
singing for a number of other special occa¬ 

Each member of the club had a chance to 
show his individual ability. Whether they 
thought it was a good way or not, we cannot 
say for certain. Anyway, whatever their 
thoughts were, each one was responsible for a 
part on a program to be given in the club 
every two weeks. Some interesting and very 
well-planned programs were given during the 

The clnb gave proof of the high aim of the 
leader and its members in a cantata they 
presented on a Thanksgiving program, No¬ 
vember twenty-seventh. This cantata “In 
Woodland,” which consisted of six parts, had 
for its subject the charm of the forest in its 
varying moods. 

Who knows but that some day some of us 
may attend the opera and hear one of the 
members of this club as a prima donna? 




“Vive L'Amour ' 


^TJOME, Home on the Range” we’ll give 
“ you three guesses. Yes, that’s right. 
You guessed it the first time. Those are 
usually the opening words of the Boys’ Glee 
Club. They selected this song as their theme 
song. It was one song of which almost all 
the entire group knew the words. Maybe it 
was because it made a big hit on the radio 
just recently and was sung by every one. 

The boys had a good time preparing their 
parts op a program. For in this club as well 
as in the Girls’ Glee Club and Chorus, special 
programs were given within the club every 
two weeks. The boys asked only one favor 
from their leader, Miss Neff, in connection 
with the special programs to be given, that 
no audience was to be allowed. Wonder why 

they suggested a thing like that? You cer¬ 
tainly didn’t have to be in the same room 
with them to hear them sing. 

The vocal chords were in fine shape the 
year around. But no kidding, these boys did 
wonderful work with their instructor in cul¬ 
tivating their voices and perhaps unconscious¬ 
ly achieved the effect sought by her—that of 
perfecting a freedom of expression. 

This group kept the aim of the club in 
their minds, and as they were interested in 
making the club a success, they had a very 
successful year. On the Thanksgiving pro¬ 
gram they sang a beautiful, old college song, 
Vive L ’Amour, ’ ’ which received much favor¬ 
able comment. They presented excellent per¬ 
formances on both the Christmas and spring 
festival programs. Various types of music to 
broaden their musical knowledge were studied 
and songs of old masters and folk songs of 
various nations, as well as more modern selec¬ 
tions, were subjects which they studied.

To Construct and to Repair Is Our 

W HEN you walked past the south side of the 
building, did you often wonder what that 
peculiar noise that sounded like a tempera¬ 
mental fire whistle was, or what that din was 
that resembled an army marching out of step ? 
That was the noise making department of the 
school, in other words, the manual training 
shop. Noise, however, was not all that was 
manufactured, because the students who 
worked there constructed many useful and 
valuable articles, such as, towel racks, fun¬ 
nels, corn poppers, table lamps, inlaid checker 
boards, porch chairs, and numerous other 

This was also the repair department. They 
helped Santa repair his toys; the cooks fa¬ 
vored them, because they fixed the electric 
stoves; and the artists were their friends, be¬ 
cause they made a potter’s wheel and waste 
paper baskets for the art room. 

Sixty-five boys were enrolled in the four 
enterprises, which were mechanical drawing, 

sheet metal work, woodwork, and electric 

One who is enrolled in the mechanical draw¬ 
ing shop must have steady nerves and should 
be neat. Two admonitions, ‘ ‘ Keep your pencil 
sharp” and “Do not bother the draftsmen,” 
were heard from Mr. Sedgwick, the teacher. 

Many fingers were burned with hot solder 
in the sheet metal shop. Several boys expe¬ 
rienced the difficulty of cutting on a line and 
finding correct measurements on a ruler. 
Above the noise of hammers and saws in the 
wood shop, lamentations and exclamations of 
the following type were heard. “Ouch! I hit 
the wrong nail.” “All the planer marks are 
not sanded out.” “I didn’t get this sawed 
off square.” 

Electrical terms, naturally, were flying 
through the air of the electric shop. Electric 
bells, two-way switches, batteries, anything 
in the form of electricity was studied. 

A variety of articles all the way from 
cookie cutters to table lamps were made in 
the shops. Mr. Theodore Sedgwick is to be 
congratulated upon the progress made and 
worth-while things accomplished by this de¬ 
partment of the school.

them was named after him? 

Green Dogs a Novelty 

OANG! Another Red Skin hit the dust. 
^ Only this time it wasn’t a Red Skin. It 
might have been a dog, elephant, pig or the 
such like. Maybe we should explain ourselves. 
The art class did clay modeling for a while, 
and in order to get the proper shape for some 
of the animals’ ears, tails, legs, etc., they were 
instructed by their teacher, Mrs. McCurdy, 
to throw them on the floor a while. You had 
to watch your step when this was going on, 
for, unless you were good at dodging, you 
might have been soaked in the ear with a 
pig. Wonder what they would have done if 
some visitor should have stepped through the 
door and should have been hit in the eye with 
an elephant? 'We can’t even imagine; so you 
just guess. If only some of our well-known 
artists could have seen the color scheme they 
used! Can you imagine an orange pig, dotted 
here and there with blue spots or a green 
elephant with orange eyes? Even though the 
colors were exaggerated, one thing was cer¬ 
tain, the articles were so good that they didn’t 
have to be labeled. Some of the dogs had 
the cutest names. Wonder if Henry Clay 

The class arranged a display of art objects 
from foreign countries in a glass case in the 
hall. This gave students an opportunity to 
enjoy arts and crafts from such countries as 
Japan, China, Mexico, Italy, Egypt, India, 
Germany, Spain and Palestine. The objects 
were loaned by members of the faculty and 
others who were interested in promoting art 

Other interesting subjects the class took up 
were pencil sketching, water color scenes, oil 
pictures, Christmas greetings, oriental wall 
panels, portfolios, perspective, tie-dye and 
batik work. The junior high did some very 
successful work also. They studied color 
theory and its application to craft problems, 
designing for covered boxes, lettering, posters, 
cartooning, greeting cards, design books, block 
printing, soap carving, and crayon wall hang¬ 

Who knows but that some day one of us 
may walk into the Chicago Art Institute and 
see a very beautiful painting by—Let’s say— 
You Guess. Then our memories will go back 
to the little art room in the Hagerstown 
school where they had tippy chairs and where 
they decorated pigs, orange with blue spots.

Best Epitome Ever? 

W RITE-UPS, engraving, cover design, 
theme, printing, pictures—these are only 
a few of the many things to be considered in 
the publishing of a school annual, which is 
the greatest undertaking of the senior class. 

The Epitome conversations at the begin¬ 
ning of the year are full of optimism. Each 
person is sure of a better annual than that of 
the last year, and it is this confidence which 
is carried over into the actual work and makes 
the annual a success. 

In the early fall, an editor is elected by the 
class. The editor, class president and sponsor 
in turn choose staff members from names 
given to them by seniors who wish to be on 
the staff. The class chooses the photographer, 
group and senior pictures are taken, and work 
gets under way. There are three people who 
are indispensable to the success of the year¬ 
book—the photographer, engraver, and print¬ 
er. Reliable firms must be chosen for this 
work because the failure of one firm to do 
good work results ordinarily in the impossi¬ 
bility of good work from the remaining two. 

Representatives from these three agencies 
confer with the sponsor and staff members 
and agree upon arrangement of the book, type 
of printing, and other important phases of 
the work. 

All the staff members are important to the 
completion of the annual, and they have co¬ 
operated with the sponsor to the fullest ex¬ 
tent in spite of many little aggravating details 
of their respective offices. Those poor literary 
editors—how abused they felt after they had 
completed what they thought was a “peach of 
a story” only to have it handed back to them 
with this paragraph marked out or that one 
changed, but they willingly rewrote the ar¬ 
ticle without any complaint. There, too, were 
the advertising editors, who after two futile 
attempts had failed to convince a pessimistic 
business man that he should buy an ad and 
were told that they must return for the third 
time with a new sales talk and get an ad, 
which they usually did. The typists came in 
for their hard work but the above were only 
a few examples of the splendid cooperation 
or harmonization of the entire staff. When 
you examine this book, please remember that 
it is not the work of only one or two persons 
but the combination of the efforts of all staff 




Dependable Monitors in School 

U7HAT a job the members of the Board of 
” Control have! They have the responsibil¬ 
ity of caring for the money that comes in and 
goes out of the treasuries of the classes and 
different organizations of the school. Each 
member’s books must check with those of the 
treasurer of the Board. 

They have a grand time keeping their 
books in balance (oh yeah !) , and they should 
be honored in that they know how to handle 
money. What a time they do have when they 
try collecting class dues from the students. 
The most popular phrase at that time was, 
“I forgot,” 

If you don’t know the members on this 
board, here are two good points that might 
help you to recognize them: 

1. If you see a student dashing ’round with 
a small box and you hear its contents jingle, 
well, if you don’t have any money it might 
be a good plan for you to start dashing, too. 

2. The most precious thing they value is a 
little notebook with a list of names and the 
words, “Paid” or “Not Paid” after them. 

The purpose of the Board of Control is to 
handle all the school’s money in one banking 
account at the bank. All payments are made 
by checks, written by the treasurer of the 
Board. This makes it easy to check up on the 
money that is going out or being spent by the 
classes and organizations in the school. 

1 he treasurers of the classes and organiza¬ 
tions in the school make up the Board of Con¬ 
trol. They are the following:

Miss Van Horn and Helen Smith. They 
have certainly worked out an efficient 
method in doing this. If they hadn’t, 
probably all they would get done would 
be to check books. The other members 
of the board have helped in that they 
have kept their books up-to-date and

Our Board of Directors 

Appreciated Managers 

A BANK, sturdy and stable, trusted for its 
years of service to the people, is a fitting 
synonym for the school board of the Hagers¬ 
town and Jefferson Township schools. This 
board of education is as busy as the prover¬ 
bial bee, a fact which is proved by its activity 
at any time. The three people who serve on 
this board have many responsibilities, the 
greatest of these being the selection of a super¬ 
intendent of schools and through him choosing 
efficient and capable principals and teachers 
for the schools. This task has been ably ful¬ 
filled as was evidenced by the progress made 
by the schools under the leadership of the fac¬ 
ulty during the past year. The other duties 
of the board include supervising the budget¬ 
ing of funds for various school expenses, ever 
keeping in mind the taxpayer and the effi¬ 
ciency of the schools, the change of school 
textbooks, the buying of new equipment for 
schools, employing of drivers for school buses 
and many more problems too numerous to 

The members of the board are as follows: 

Mrs. Leora 
Waltz, township 
trustee, has 
served on the 
school board for 
eight years and 
has given proof 
of her capability 
for this position 
by her untiring 
work and effi¬ 
ciency in accom¬ 
plishing every¬ 
thing worth while 
for the better¬ 
ment of the 

Mr. T. S. Wal¬ 
ker has shown in 
his two years of 
service, an inter¬ 
est in the schools 
which has been 
instrumental i n 
promoting to a 
greater degree 
the high stand¬ 
ards and ideals 
for which t h e 
schools have al¬ 
ways stood. 

Mr. Clarence 
Stout, who has 
been a member of 
the board since 
last August, has in 
this slior t time 
been an ever de¬ 
pendable source of 
help and has con¬ 
tributed to the wel¬ 
fare of the institu¬ 
tion of learning 
over which he has 
partial control. 

As a sound and 
dependable bank 
must have its board 
of directors, made 
up of people who 
work for its gain, so must a school, in order 
to be successful have an efficient board of 
education. This board of education has very 
successfully managed the schools, and it is 
with pleasure that we, the pupils of the Ha¬ 
gerstown schools, take this opportunity of 
thanking them for their earnest efforts. 

Clarence Stout 

T. S. Walker 





Frank M. Cory 

The teachers and students honor and re¬ 
spect the one who guides the destiny of our 
school. In him we find the ideal student, 
teacher and citizen. We refer to Mr. Frank 
M. Cory, our superintendent. 

He is a good leader. Perhaps the reason for 
this is that each and everyone, whether he is 
a beginner or a graduating senior president, 
receives the same cordial, sympathetic, and 
considerate attention from Mr. Cory. 

Mr. Cory earned his A.B. degree from 
Indiana University, and his Masters degree 
from Columbia University in School Ad¬ 
ministration and Supervision. 

Mr. J. R. Craw is assigned the task of help¬ 
ing the students fit into the action of the 
school. This task lie performs well, aided by 
his six years of experience as principal of the 
school, and by his knowledge gained from ob¬ 
taining an A.B. and an M.A. degree at Butler 
University. With such a manager, the school 
moves efficiently onward as does a well oiled 

Mf. Craw is also the teacher of the Spanish 
and English classes, and sponsor of the Epit¬ 
ome. With all his varied tasks he finds time 
to reveal definite interest in art and science.

time “tripping” to strange 
places and there meeting new 
people. Our enthusiastic and

If economists or historians 
we would be, Miss Martha

The tilling of the soil, an

under the excellent supervi¬

A candid friend, no doubt, 
but one whose frankness 
brought admiration instead 
of antagonism. Smitty was 
always there when she was 
Avanted and was liked by 
everyone. She Avas a mem¬ 
ber of the G. R., Red Cross, 
and Epitome and Exponent 



Marian came to join us as 
a freshman. She brought her 
A’oice Avith her and Avas a 
valued member in all musical 
organizations. Hers were not 
all musical interests, hoAV- 
ever, for she Avas a member 
of the G. R., and Avas typist 
for the Epitome. Yet Avhen 
she sings, just sit back and 


As dainty as a curling 
Avreath of smoke, as invigor¬ 
ating as an ice-filled coke— 
Avhat could better describe 
Mid than those tAvo phrases? 
Her activities for the four 
high school years included 
membership in chorus, glee 
club, Epitome staff, Red 
Cross, G. R. and Art. We 
will never forget Mid as 
“Patsy” in the junior play 
of that name. 


Mary was one of our senior 
girl athletes. Basketball Avas 
an important issue Avith her, 
and she was also athletic ed¬ 
itor on the Epitome staff. 
Polly, as she Avas affection¬ 
ately known, Avas our faith¬ 
ful librarian, and Ave hope 
that in the library of Time 
her services will be as ac¬ 
curate and complete as they 
haA r e been in our little school 


Did you ever see Howard 
when he wasn’t grinning? He 
was a member of the chorus 
and the Hi-Y club. Howard 
says, “Bervare, I might do 
something startling yet.” 


Nothing could be harder 
to imagine than Thelma 
AA r ithout a smile on her face, 
and her usual repertoire of 
jokes. She figured in the ac¬ 
tivities of the G. R. club and 
was on the Exponent and 
Epitome staff. With her wit, 
Thelma had an appreciative 
audience everyAvhere she 




Mary prefers quietness and 
is polite in every respect. 
One could almost always 
find her either in the sew¬ 
ing room or cafeteria, be¬ 
cause she took an active in¬ 
terest in home economics and 
was a special advanced stu¬ 
dent in this work. Mary was 
often seen but seldom heard. 


She blows her sax with 
mighty vim, and everyone’s 
heart she’s sure to win. Mar¬ 
guerite displayed an unusual 
interest in music and was a 
loyal member of the orches¬ 
tra. She also belonged to 
G. R., and was art editor on 
the Epitome staff. Curly 
hair and eyes of brown, 
time’s never dull when she’s 



Introducing — oh, why 
bother, everyone knows Gin 
Harlan. She could very ef¬ 
fectively show her emotions 
by facial expressions and it 
was this fact that was the 
cause of so much mirth in 
speech class. Her activities 
include membership in Red 
Cross and G. R., Exponent 
and Epitome staff. 



Paul has a heart of gold 
and spends all his time try¬ 
ing to cash it. His interests 
have been mostly agricul¬ 
tural, yet he was a member 
of the Hi-Y club. The whys 
and the wherefores do not 
worry Paul. 


“Never a care in all the 
world” is Jack’s attitude. He 
was interested in agriculture 
and very earnestly applied 
himself to the task. He was 
full of fun—always ready to 
laugh or make someone else 
laugh. Perhaps you didn’t 
know it, but he was poeti¬ 
cally inclined. 


When June’s name is men¬ 
tioned, everyone thinks im¬ 
mediately of this peppy lit¬ 
tle blackeyed, black haired 
girl who never lets time 
bother her, because, she says, 
it passes anyway without her 


Herman was one of our 
agriculturally inclined boys 
at H. II. S. He took an ac¬ 
tive interest in this subject. 
He was a member of the 
Hi-Y club. “Everyone has 
to look up to Kid Canaday.” 


Dorotha is another girl to 
be admired for her versa¬ 
tility. She was editor of the 
Exponent staff, a G. R. and 
Red Cross member. She has 
very definite moral stand¬ 
ards and adheres strictly to 
them, a fact which causes 
us to admire her. Dot took 
a tremendous interest in 
speech class. 


#- 1934 


Mary’s interests have been 
mostly musical ones, but she 
was also a G. R. member. 
Her sunny personality won 
for her innumerable friends, 
a characteristic which she 
and the famous Henry have 
in common. 


It is difficult to under¬ 
stand one who is so quiet, 
but Frank evidently needs 
no one’s assistance to be 
happy. He has the excellent 
virtue of minding his own 
business, and he gained 
friends because of this. 



Brown of eyes, and blond 
of hair, with never a worry 
and never a care — that’s 
Esther. She was a member 
of the G. R. club and Epit¬ 
ome staff, and in her high 
school career was actively 
engaged in commercial work. 
“Day by day in every way, 
she types and types away.” 


It can hardly be said that 
girls are Clyde’s foes, be¬ 
cause he’s fond of them (per¬ 
haps we should say her), 
and also fond of clothes. He 
was interested in agricul¬ 
ture and was on the basket¬ 
ball team. 


Evelyn is very quiet, yet 
there is always that mys¬ 
terious air about her which 
reveals that she, by being 
a good listener, can learn 
more than a more active par¬ 
ticipant in the conversation 
learned. She was on the 
Epitome staff and was a 
G. R. member. 


Estelene is a rare com¬ 
pound of oddity, frolic, and 
fun, and she relishes a joke 
and rejoices in a pun. As lit¬ 
erary editor on the Epitome 
staff she was very compe¬ 
tent. She was also a very 
active G. R. member. Her 
only fault was that she made 
too many A’s. 


During her three years at 
Hagerstown, Luva has di¬ 
vided her interests among 
the G. R. club, chorus, and 
as a member of the Epitome 
staff. Tall and slender, laugh¬ 
ing and blushing, Luva has 
won a place in the class 
of ’34. 


Many of the activities of 
H. H. S. have found Aud an 
active and loyal member. 
She was a member of the 
Epitome staff, a Red Cross 
and G. R. member, and was 
in the cast of the senior 
play. Audrey seems to say 
to the world, “I’m glad to 
be alive! Aren’t you?” and 
her many friends associate 
this thought with her. She 
has indeed an attractive per¬ 




Mr. Spuller’s agriculture 
class evidently didn’t lack 
for senior boys, for here’s 
another who was an active 
participant in that class. 
Mark had other interests in 
high school which were di¬ 
vided between the Hi-Y club 
and Audrey, and proved that 
he was competent in these 
tasks—just ask Audrey. 


Everyone likes Ethel be¬ 
cause of her abundant good 
nature. She is quite beyond 
compare, with her black and 
curly hair. She was another 
whose interest was in com¬ 
mercial work, and who was 
a G. R. and Epitome staff 




Mary’s interests in high 
school have been many and 
varied — everything from 
Sophomore boys and class 
play roles to G. R. and 4-H 
club presidents and advertis¬ 
ing editor of the Epitome. 
We marvel at her ability to 
be an honor roll student, and 
because of this she is nat¬ 
urally a member of our 
“senior intelligentsia.” Gay, 
lovable Mary was a familiar 
figure around school. 


Margaret is the enviable 
combination of good sound 
sense and an amiable dispo¬ 
sition. She was a member 
of the Exponent and Epit¬ 
ome staffs and G. R. club. 
Perhaps she should be a 
photographic model because 
Hirshburg considered her as 
good material. With her 
friendly disposition, Marg is 
a welcome addition to any 

Thelma is small in stature 
and her face is fair, she has 
a soft voice and a quiet air. 
Her main interest in high 
school has been home eco¬ 
nomics. She did very good 
literary work on the Epit¬ 
ome staff. In the future, 
perhaps, Kenny will appre¬ 
ciate the domestic training. 
Who knows? 


Jim has the firm belief 
that a handful of common 
sense is worth a bushel of 
learning and he evidently 
practices what he preaches. 
He has been an active mem¬ 
ber of the Hi-Y club and has 
been interested in agricul¬ 
ture. Depend on him! 


Howard, with the help of 
Mary, talked many a busi¬ 
ness man into buying that 
coveted bit of advertising 
space in the Fpitome. He 
was a Hi-Y member and was 
in the junior play. If life 
were nothing but to sing and 
dance, Howard would win 
without a chance. 


Jane flavors everything; 
she is the vanilla of society. 
Her interests, other than her 
regular studies, have been 
centered around Red Cross, 
G. R. and Epitome staff. Jane 
is always merry and believes 
that a bit of nonsense now 
and then is cherished by the 
best of men.

To be most versatile in 
general knowledge, good 
books and speech, foreign 
language and travel, nature 
and science, poetry and fic¬ 
tion is a rarity. Choose the 
topic, give June paper and 
pencil, and she will write 
the article. Popular and ap¬ 
preciated, she has found her 
coveted position in the senior 


This shy little brown eyed 
girl is by preference no 
longer included in the en¬ 
rollment of H. H. S., yet 
while she attended school she 
was very quiet and unassum¬ 
ing and in this way gained 


Diminutive yet dignified— 
these adjectives are descrip¬ 
tive of Wilma, who has 
proved that small stature is 
no 'hindrance. The G-. R. 
club claimed Wilma as one 
of its actives and she also 
was an Epitome staff mem¬ 
ber. Just now Wisehart is 
her name, but Maurice thinks 
Mitchell better, and she 
thinks the same. 



It seems that Simp’s in¬ 
terests ran more to the so¬ 
cial than to the studious life 
in high school, but with his 
apparent motto, “Yesterday 
is gone, forget it. Tomorrow 
hasn’t arrived, don’t worry. 
Today is here, but you’ll get 
by,” has been his stand-by. 
He was a member of the 
Hi-Y and played roles in the 
junior and senior plays. 


Mattie, the girl who made 
friends by being one, re¬ 
gretfully moved from Ha¬ 
gerstown at the end of the 
first semester. Although she 
has been here only a year, 
her dependability and effi¬ 
ciency could be counted 


Agriculture and mathe¬ 
matics! Doesn’t that sound 
like a formidable combina¬ 
tion? Evidently Logan didn’t 
think so, for those were his 
favorite subjects and ones 
that he mastered well, a fact 
proved by the A’s he made. 
He was a member of the 
Hi-Y club and Epitome staff. 


Nature, in doing her little 
bit, gave this girl a won¬ 
drous amount of “it.” Bert, 
as everybody knows her, was 
a member of chorus, glee 
club, Epitome staff and the 
G. R. club. She is very in¬ 
dividualistic and she’s fair, 
she’s bright, she’s popular 
and all right. 


Shorty’s absence was in 
evidence more than his pres¬ 
ence the last year, but his 
congenial attitude was ever 
on display. Y T ou hardly real¬ 
ized he was around until he 
laughed. Here’s a boy with 
a heart and smile. What he 
lacks in size, he makes up in 
style. He was in the cast 
of the junior play. 




Rosamond is one who is 
not careless in deed, confused 
in thought, nor rambling in 
words. She, too, has had 
extra - curricular activities 
which included membership 
in all musical organizations, 
G. R., Red Cross, and Epit¬ 
ome staff. She has black 
hair and eyes, yet she is 
fond of Gray. The sincerity 
of her friendship is undenied. 


Thomas, who came from 
Dalton, maintained a silence 
which fooled no one, for in 
occasional bursts of eloquence 
he revealed his true self. He 
displayed an interest in agri¬ 
culture, and the 4-H club 
found in him a loyal sup¬ 



The girl of the sophomore 
boys’ dreams and a friend 
to all was Marion. She was 
in the east of the senior 
play, on the Epitome staff 
and a G. R. member. She is 
indeed “dainty, demure and 
well poised.” 


Black hair, black eyes, and 
a heart as pure as gold is a 
fitting description for our 
Mary. She seems to have 
acquired effectiveness through 
her motto, “Why hurry? 
The world will wait.” She 
was a G. R. and Red Cross 
member and was on the Epit¬ 
ome staff. 



Naomi prepared for a busi¬ 
ness career, since she was 
enrolled in all commercial 
courses that the school of¬ 
fered. Although Naomi has 
been in H. H. S. only one 
year she has made many 
friends and she is evidently 
“silent but certain.” 


Rena was a spe¬ 
cial advanced stu¬ 
dent in home eco¬ 
nomics and was 
active in this work, 
and also in the 
G. R. organiza¬ 
tion. She’s a jolly 
good sport and 
her nimble tongue 
w a s entertaining 
to all. 


Russell seemed to prefer 
freedom from scholastic af¬ 
fairs and for this reason dis¬ 
continued relations with the 


Mary Alice was 
domestically in¬ 
clined because her 
main interest in 
high school has 
been home eco¬ 
nomics. She was 
an Epitome staff 
and G. R. member. 
She is one who 
thinks it is not 
wise to be wiser 
than necessary, 
but we think her 
wisdom is d i s - 
played quite well. 
She has a smile 
for everyone. 

The sentence, “Men of few 
words seldom suffer defeat,” 
is very appropriate in de¬ 
scribing Leo. As a high 
school student Leo has 
worked exceptionally hard 
to accomplish something 
worth while and his purpose 
has not been de¬

Thrilled at the Expectation 

J UNIORS, dressed in their latest best, ar¬ 
rive via feet and bus at knowledge factory 
station. Greetings over, they journey to the 
assembly where principal of education, Mr. 
Craw, tells them that they must interview 
course for the year in order to board the study 
train which will convey them, providing they 
use time and teacher’s patience correctly, to 
the station promoted to senior year or eight 
credits earned. 

Dues (Tickets) for the trip cost two dol¬ 
lars plus dining car fee of either food or fifty 
cents for mother and daughter banquet. 

Study train first stops at Junior meeting 
where Juniors elect conductors Cain and Van 
Horn to help guide them to credits earned. 

Two of the most interesting points of 
education which study train passed through 
were typewriters and shorthand. Miss Van 
Horn was the guide at both places. 

Study train passed through the green and 
yellow gold tunnel (rings). Juniors were 
both happy and sad when thinking of ap¬ 

proaching this wonderful tunnel, for it took 
nearly eight weeks to reach it. Meanwhile 
they rode many bumpy coaches trying to 
raise, earn or borrow six dollars and seventy 
five cents to receive a pass from Conductor 
Cain to Yellow Gold Tunnel. 

By this time study t7'ain was so exhausted 
after four months of steady pushing forward 
that it had to stop at eleven day rest at Christ¬ 
mas holidays. Parties and general merrymak¬ 
ing were enjoyed by the passengers during 
this stop. 

Hush! All is quiet. The Yellow Shadow! 
Mystery appeared and with him, comedy. 
Yes, five girls and five boys entertained the 
study train passengers and others on the 
nights of February 14 and 15. 

Reception was the last important and most 
brilliant colored station which was passed 
through. The passengers even purchased 
new clothes to entertain their guests— the 
Seniors and Faculty at this place. Everyone 
enjoyed the fine hospitality and excellent 
program given at reception. 

After this gala stop, study train came to 
credits earned where each passenger de¬ 
scended the steps with a final salufe and 
started with books for home. 




At the Foot of the Mountain of 

| ONG, long ago in the year of 1934, on a day 
in September (the exact date wasn’t re¬ 
corded), a gronp of fifty-nine students, who 
declared their names to be Sophomores, 
started on a journey beginning at a place that 
is well known to all of us —the brain crammer. 
They chose as their leaders Richard Warfel, 
Hariett Fosnight, Mr. Virgil Heniser, and 
Miss Martha Castle. This group, insignificant, 
never-ready-to-study, still a little green from 
their freshman year, gayly started out to con¬ 
quer the giant despair and to find the parch¬ 
ment called diploma that was hidden in the 
mountain of knowledge. 

Their first stop was at the valley of work, 
where they gathered enough equipment that 
would last them for a year. Also, they were 
given instruction as to the responsibilities 
each must have and the effort each must put 
forth in order to meet the difficulties that 
might be along the way. 

They were compelled to travel over rough 
and uneven paths. Latin and Spanish mons¬ 

ters loomed up before them, and gave them 
the fright of their lives. Some of those who 
had to deal with the Latin monster said, “I’m 
afraid I’ll have to turn back, I can’t even get 
around this brute. ’ ’ But along came one of 
the wise ones in the group and said, “When 
you’re in Rome, do as the Romans do.” So 
being encouraged with this, the tired “La- 
tineer ’ ’ pushed on. 

Many had to enter the den of geometry. The 
many little insects in the form of propositions 
tormented them so that if it hadn’t been for 
their patient guide, Ruth Dutro, many of 
them would still be trying to kill insects that 
have the power to produce propositions. 

Along the brighter and more even path, 
some took part in a game called basketball. 
Before entering this game, they were com¬ 
pelled to have certain standards in their 
work. How they ever did their work so that 
it was brought to the standard is something 
that is not recorded in their history. Never- 
tlieless some of them did so and they became 
outstanding players of the game. After eight 
long, weary months of hard travel they came 
to the foot of the mountain of knowledge. 
There they were told that their next trip 
would not begin until the year of 1935, and 
that this trip would take them halfway up 
the mountain to a station called Juniors. 



Bewildered and Delighted 

•- Vie 1934 

F RESHMEN, unobtrusive Freshmen join 
the throng of upper-classmen. Yes, ’tis 
the start of books and teachers. 

They, Freshmen, seemed very meek at first, 
perhaps for a certain purpose! Anyway, 
upper-classmen didn’t “duck” them in the 
brook. They evidently remembered their first 
boat ride and decided to let the Freshies spill 

Captain and First-Mate for the up-stream 
voyage to sophomore harbor were Miss Ger¬ 
trude Adams, and Mr. Clarence Spuller. 

Passports for the trip were twenty-five 
cents, in most cases secured from home. The 
gangplank was rather tiring to climb; espe¬ 
cially so when the captain, First-Mate or any 
member of the crew were near, for the four 
flights of stairs had to be ascended one step 
at a time. 

The captain’s office was on the third deck. 
At this often visited office he gave out not 
only advice pertaining how to ride the waves, 
but also that of how to live on the land—that 
of farming and all its accessories. 

Miss Adam’s stateroom was characterized 
by walls lined with books and magazines, up- 
to-date books and magazines, too, they were. 
The Freshmen girls enjoyed this housewife 
reference library. 

Every month currents would come sweep¬ 
ing (swiftly or gently) down the river, and 
the passengers would tug and study for power 
to ride the current. Nevertheless, the cur¬ 
rents never failed to come each month. 

All passengers thought it would be soothing 
to the ever-present seasickness to drop anchor 
on the evening of November 18 for a night 
of real fun. The party was held in the lobby 
of the boat, otherwise known as the gymna¬ 
sium. Evidently the night of entertainment 
was beneficial for most of them were strong 
enough to ride successfully the flood which 
came when they were halfway to the much 
hoped for Harbor. It was at this time that 
the time-worn motto, “If at first you don’t 
succeed, try, try, again ! ’ ’ was adopted,—a 
very inspirational motto for such a group! 

Because everyone was so intensely inter¬ 
ested in reaching the Harbor, all were busy 
during the last lap of the journey. 

With thanksgivings, joyous sighs, and hap¬ 
py tears, they sighted sophomore harbor. 



Current of Final Examinations Passed 

TUFTY-SIX small and disturbed students 
* went on a lengthy voyage into a mysterious 
realm called the Eighth grade. In September 
they secured their passports from Secretary 
of State Craw, and went on board the huge 
ship called study. This ship study had many 
staterooms, namely: English, Spelling, Arith¬ 
metic, Music, Art, General Science, History, 
Home Economics, Manual Training, and Agri¬ 
culture. These rooms were all very difficult 
to secure and required much concentration 
and hard work to do so. On the way across 
the ocean of Junior High School, some be¬ 
came seasick and were unable to continue 
their voyage without help from kind assistants 
called teachers. At the end of each month of 
the voyage, slips of white paper called report 
cards were given to the passengers and always 
excited much comment, favorable and unfav¬ 
orable. In the course of the trip, Miss Neff, 

who had charge of the stateroom called music 
required each occupant of the room to take 
part in a program presented every week. 

The Stateroom, General Science, was the 
home of several young and inspiring scientists 
whose program, Scientific Magic, revealed the 
true extent of the benefit they derived from 
the instruction of Mr. Sedgwick, another 

The girls in stateroom Home Economics, 
under the leadership of Mrs. McCurdy, had 
their first realization of the duties of home¬ 
making when they were required to do a cer¬ 
tain amount of domestic work within a limited 
time. Near the end of the journey, the ship 
Study, with colors flying high, reached the 
current of final examinations . If the entire 
list of passengers failed to come up to fixed 
standards, the ship had to remain in quaran¬ 
tine for another year, but they were allowed 
to pass through this current into the Harbor 
of Promotion, where they remained until the 
following year. 



Sea of Wilderness 

B EGINNERS crossed the stormy sea of 
wilderness to just one small island which 
they laboriously explored for days and days 
and carefully tucked away all the information 
gained in the upper story to be remembered 
for their future voyages. 

Even before arriving at the edge of the sea , 
the Beginners had to travel through thickets 
of entangled underbrush. The trails were 
often traveled the wrong direction; conse¬ 
quently the Beginners often ran into the 
wrong rooms. 

In order to thoroughly derive the most bene¬ 
fit expected from the island , the Beginners, 
after enrolling for the expedition course, dis¬ 
covered that the thorough mastering of the 
scientific knowledge which the Guides offered 
required so much time that they did not have 
time for the between-morning-lunch or 
school-out recreation. Besides this, recreation 
time was not set aside or called for in 

•- Ifie 1954 

Inner control was an ardent principle. The 
Beginners showed this unusual trait of char¬ 
acter, especially when a Guide or Guides were 
attending to other camp duties. Special 
memo pads which were kept by the guides 
were more commonly known as points off and 
detention. Beginners were so delighted to find 
that Guides who also taught upper classmen 
taught them. 

During the eight months’ stay at camp, the 
Beginners met several new unheard-of-before 
friends, Home Economics, Art, Music Ap¬ 
preciation, Industrial Arts, and Physical 
Education. In addition to these, two friends 
over whom they were very enthusiastic were 
Basketball and Baseball. You should have 
seen them play Basketball. My, my they al¬ 
most became professionals! ! ! ! Some saga¬ 
cious and honored friends were also intro¬ 
duced to these people by memory passages. 
By the time they had become well acquainted 
with friends, the Beginners were almost ready 
to “thank” the authors. However, a true and 
worth-while acquaintance never does harm. 

After a most pleasant year, the Beginners 
packed keepsakes and joyfully crossed the 
sea to safe land— Home once again.

Point Winners on Display

It’s not the number of points recorded

Rules of the Came 

THE popularity of games is demonstrated 
A by their almost universal occurrence in the 
history of the human race. Evidence of their 
benefit is furnished both in peace and in war. 

No more valuable preparation is obtainable 
for the “Game of Life” in general than by 
participation in vigorous games during youth. 

The success or failure of a basketball season 
cannot be counted by the number of games 
won or lost. The game, whether won or lost, 
always has its qualities, either advantageous 
or to the contrary. Basketball, considered as 
the outstanding activity of a school, always 
possesses certain qualities which may be 
termed good. 

Clean sportsmanship and fair play are the 
most prominent and valuable ethical and so¬ 
cial characteristics requisite for and resultant 
from robust games, but at the same time 
these attributes are among the most important 
qualities involved or manifested in any and 
all of the varied situations and experiences 
of human life. Girls and boys need to learn

through practical experiences the rules of fair 
play; generous treatment of rivals and oppo¬ 
nents ; merging oneself in groups and cooper¬ 
ative efforts; loyalty toward fellow players; 
concentration of power; and tending of all 
energies toward an objective goal. 

Some of the minor points which should be 
considered are: first, cooperation of team 
members to the making of a real team and co¬ 
operation of student body in supporting the 
team; second, the joy of participation in a 
game, by the actual playing, and by rooting- 
on the side lines; third, development in the 
individual team members of a mental alert¬ 
ness, a healthy body, mental and physical 
self-control and self-confidence. 

Basketball is a major school sport which 
both team members and student body often 
over-emphasize, to the detriment of studies 
and general attitude. In considering indivi¬ 
dual players, over-strain in this game can 
bring physical impairment, either through 
improper care of oneself or accident. 

Athletic games should be played out of 
doors whenever possible. The physical envir¬ 
onment should be in every way sanitary. All 
of the human influences should be the highest 
degree wholesome. Further, these games will 
be greatly increased in interest and value by 
the development in the methods of individual 
and group effort.

Loyalty Is Necessary 

Paul Earl Harris — “Harris” was small 
but speedy, and kept his opponents guessing. 
(2 years) 

Morris Foutz —“Foutz” surely put pep 
into the team, and was a fine player. (1 year) 

Eugene Drake — “Ducky” showed them 
how to play center. (Graduates) 

Herman Cromis — “Cromis” started with 
the “kittens,” but was given a berth on the 
regular squad early in the season. You can’t 
keep a good man down. (2 years) 

Harvey Bennington — “Bud” was a valu¬ 
able man on the team. He could be depended 
upon to do his share, and he was also one of 
the most consistent scorers on the team.

Forty-seven boys answered the first call for 
basketball practice. Of this group only one 
had had any varsity experience. The basket¬ 
ball season was not a great success in games 
won. Only one boy will be lost from the first 
team which means that there is wonderful ma¬ 
terial remaining for next year. This year’s 
team was very small but what they lacked in 
size they made up in fight and determination. 

Richard Oler — “Oler surely gave 
his opponents plenty of scrap. He was 
one of the best defensive men. (2 years)

Do We Like Sports? 

THE girls’ basketball call was answered by 
twenty-six girls who had the overwhelming 
spirit which is necessary for the production 
of an outstanding team. 

The girls were rather downhearted when 
Coach Castle first said that she had not been 
able to schedule any games. At the next 
practice, when it was announced that two 
games with Centerville had been scheduled, 
one might have thought that a miracle had 

The girls did some hard practicing and 
much was accomplished. Miss Castle spent 
much time and labor in making the team a 
success and she has built up a splendid cur¬ 
riculum of girls’ sports which larger schools 
might envy. 

For practice play, three teams were organ¬ 
ized and out of those three teams a first team 
was chosen. 

Members of these teams were: 

Mildred Parsons 

Rosanna Roth 

Mary Alice Harlan 

Helen Waltz 

Elizabeth Bruce 

Harriet Fosnight 

Frances Adamson 

Dellamay Metsker 

Marjorie Reed 

Maxine Gray

Were Clad to Give 

W E, the senior class of 1934 hereby acknowl¬ 
edge the wonderful power of the school 
constitution. (To say that its power is won¬ 
derful is not doing justice to the constitution, 
because it has prevented, by moral strength, 
the seventh and eighth grades and the high 
school students from wrecking the building 
in the twelve years of its existence, and for 
that reason it should be recorded as one of the 
greatest documents in all history.) But there 
is a provision in all constitutions which allows 
for growth of the organization, as such growth 
is inevitable, and to make a long story short, 
we are going to take advantage of this pro¬ 
vision by adding an amendment to this great 
unwritten constitution of H. H. S. It is as 

Inasmuch as our example to, or influence 
on underclassmen has been so great that they 
no longer need such a cruel form of punish¬ 
ment, we wish to abolish the Detention System 
—and if we succeed, we request the Juniors 
to erect, in Room 9, a monument to our 

We hereby bequeath to the Juniors our 
superiority in all classes, athletics, organiza¬ 
tions, and activities offered in the curriculum 
of our Alma Mater. 

To individuals we bcs'ow the following: 

Esther Allen, after a year of bookkeeping, 
wishes to bestow Practice Set No. 2 upon Ina 
if she will study the contents and keep her 
mind from Waltzing. 

Mary Alice Allen, the girl with the yen 
to use jaw breakers instead of simple words, 
bequeaths to any of the literary editors for 
next year’s Epitome, her fondness for the 
task of getting the write-ups in on time. 

Mary, our Tigress goal shooter de luxe, 
tosses her winning determination in basketball 
to her sister, Betty, to keep the Brown spirit 
in H. H. S. 

Marian Brumback obligingly donates her 
dislike for domestic tasks to Marjorie Brown, 

and warns her not to let the broom break her 

Thelma Brumback willingly wills her sport 
shoes to Thelma Keeling, and encloses the 
tried and tested recipe for maintaining their 
odorless interior, colorless exteriors, and the 
dejectiveness of their general appearance. 

Rosamond regretfully gives Clyde Gray to 
Blanche Paddock and wishes to recall to her 
mind the old adage, “Still Brooks run deep.” 

Paul Bowman adds the superfluous what¬ 
nots on his De Soto to the depleted collection 
of thingumabobs on the limousine of Carl 
Davis. The combination of above articles will 
constitute the makings of a Model T Ford. 

Ethel Cordell grants the natural tendency 
of her hair to abandon the straight and nar¬ 
row way to Josinah Allen who, if she accepts 
this donation, will be one of the greatest ene¬ 
mies of the beauty shop. 

Herman Canady, the hero of Freshman 
girls, condescends to loan his winning ways 
to Naomi Personette. (How can a day be 
dreary with Herman around.) 

Rena Davis benevolently bequeaths her 
time-honored position in the cafeteria to Betty 
June Knose, whose nose she knows will not 
deceive her when the soup is scorching. 

Leo Dumford sympathetically donates his 
fear of speaking in speech class to any Junior 
who has difficulty in finding the extent of his 
verbal powers. 

Evelyn Dennis, Dalton’s blond, tenderly 
gives her Romeo, Clifford Weaver, who is as 
outstanding as her permanent, to Julia Bee¬ 
son, if she will consider an occasional loan. 

Thomas Dennis, another Daltoneer, thank¬ 
fully bestows his resemblance to Slim Sum¬ 
merville to anyone who cares to take the re¬ 
sponsibility of living up to the name and 
wishes to add that he is not acquainted with 
Zasu Pitts. 

Eugene Drake turns the job of business 
manager of the Epitome over to Jimmy 
Ilartig with all the hard work, responsibility

Cidap Old Dobbin 

C HUBBY LOWELL isn’t so well but bow- 
legged Boguey feels her best. The two fu¬ 
ture Brigadiers don’t see what it’s all about, 
but they will some day. Betty Lou can keep 
a secret. Let’s trot, to the right-hand corner. 
Gidap old Dobbin, Gidap, Gidap. Looks like 
rain, Alida, treed, remembers Dobbin of yes¬ 
terday. The row of bench warmers and the 

solemn cornerette gals hardly like this mode 
of travel. Some, though, who gaze through the 
fence enjoy the sport. 

Bobby says, “It’s ok, I have a pony me- 
self.’’ Tiny Jane isn’t concerned—she isn’t 
long enough for a Pressel, but she is an Alice 
of Wonderland. Little Miss Beeson sat on a 
stump, she wasn’t eating anything and no 
one gave her a bump. But my! just look at 
the other gals at the bottom of the picture. 
Really, it’s natural they like basketball boys, 
that’s why they’re so close to the huddle.

Classify Yourself! 

T TEAVENS! Sixty minutes in the study 
* *• hall. That sounds like sixty days in the 
“bug house” to some students who have a 
study period during the day. 

The following is the story of an indolent 
student who has a study period: 

He rushes into the assembly just as the 
sound of the bell dies away, looks back at his 
“pal” and winks—as if to say, “Just got 
here in time, didn’t I?” He walks heavily 
to his seat, slams his book down on his desk, 
gives the guy in front of him a hit on the 
back, and finally decides to sit down. He 
glances at the clock and figures out the time 
the period will be over. Gosh! fifty-five more 
minutes in this place. 

He opens one of his books, glances at a 
picture on this page and then turns on, maybe 
he’s within a couple of chapters where his 
lesson is supposed to be. He hears a sound 
like an airplane motor, and on investigation 
he finds that it is. He hastily gets a pencil 
from his pockets, hurries over to the pencil 
sharpener and looks out the window. All he 
gets to see of the plane is the tail—too bad. 

Oh, well, there’s a gym class outside. Still 
sharpening his pencil, he watches them a few 
minutes. At last he happens to glance down 
and sees there’s hardly anything left but the 
eraser. After taking his seat, he decides he 
had better start in playing a game of basket¬ 
ball. By the time he’s played the game, he 
happens to think about the clock. He looks 
up and sees that there’s only a half an hour 

He starts in wondering what he’ll do to 
pass away the rest of the time—sure, ask Mr. 
Heniser if he can go into the library. He 
goes up to Mr. Heniser, argues with him for 
about fifteen minutes. When he doesn’t get 
permission to go to the library, he mopes 
back to his seat and gazes out the window— 
daydreaming. Someone comes into the assem¬ 
bly and that brings him back to earth. His 
eyes follow the person that comes in until he 
leaves again. Looking at the clock he finds 
there’s only five minutes left. So thinking, 
lie writes out a pass to the basement. When 
he comes back, the first bell has rung and he 
hurries to his seat, closes his book and waits 
for the second one to ring. While he’s wait¬ 
ing, he might push someone else’s book off 
the desk or throw a paper wad down the 
aisle. There goes the second bell. At last, 
the study period is over and the student goes 
to his next class with a heavy heart, for you 
see, he didn’t have time to get his lesson

because Ducky has paved the way to a new

Anne Faurot languidly bestows that air of 
dignity, boredom or “anything just to be

that Barbara refrain from using despicable 
“Anna Lou” when addressing her. 

Howard Farmer consents to add one inch of 
his lengthy fingers to those digits of Glenn 
Ramey in order for him to become the world’s 
champion typist, but insists that the prize 
money be equally divided. 

Howard Fosnight, senior sheik will impart 
the secret of his popularity to Henry Reece 
if Henry will promise to carry out to the full¬ 
est extent the instructions given to him. 

Mary Ford gives her trusty sax to anyone 
who can become accustomed to its tempera¬

Thelma Foutz, our future homemaker, be¬ 
queaths her experience in home economics to 
Irene Troth and gives her all the accumulated 
literature of this four year course to be filed 
for future reference. 

Clyde Gray pitches his “sweat clothes” to 
Bobby Jack Brower and hopes that they do 
not put him in the same “Gray” mood when 
he is warming the bench. 

June Huddle hands her improvised brief 
case crammed with Epitome papers to a 
Junior who has enough moral courage to sort 
the papers and see what it’s all about. She 
also includes a derrick for lifting it from its 
final resting place in her locker. 

June Harty, minute but mighty, cheerfully 
wills her unbroken record of perfect attend¬ 
ance to Mildred Hilbert with the expressed 
desire that she must keep up the good work. 

Marguerite IJarcourt, our saxophonist su¬ 
preme, consents to let the placid, placating 
tones of her voice be imitated by Dorothy 
Fouts, but suggests that Dorothy talk more 
rapidly since she is in possession of such a 
slow lingo. 

Mary Hall leaves her irresponsible fresh¬ 
man ways and her cradle roll to Georgia Scott 
and demands that she continues to wear the 
small hair ribbon as an emblem of kinder¬ 
garten age as Mary has faithfully done. 

Marion Hartley takes her Sophomore mas¬ 
culine admirers by the hands and leads them 
to the outstretched arms of their feminine 
classmates who have so patiently waited for 
her graduation. 

Virginia Harlan, who has a passion for a 
coke, wills, her brilliant recitations in speech 
class to Elizabeth Bruce and says that she has 
some more suggestions as to speech making 
if Elizabeth cares to drop around some time. 

Naomi Heimlick will give her experience as 
a new student to any of the Millville, Dalton, 
or Jacksonburg freshmen if they will accept 
her good advice as to the proper appearance 
to present to the teachers, students, and others 
in this strange world. 

Luva Smith donates the chameleonic ability 
of her cheeks, when an embarrasing situation 
is present, to Helen Waltz, said ability to be 
used when nothing else is effective. 

Frank Keizer wills his extraordinarily loud 
voice to Eleneida Craig to be used in the U. S. 
government class to save Miss Castle the 
trouble of reminding students to exercise their 
vocal powers to a fuller extent, 

Mary K. Lannard modestly wills her lady¬

Mary Myers bashfully bequeaths her any¬ 
thing but bold ways to Amarentha Wescott

to Robert Hogue. 

Margaret Talbert wills her soft pleasing 
drawl together with her often-mentioned 
photographic modeling ability to June Black. 

Miriam Smith who loves to be on the nega¬ 
tive side of any conversational debate bestows 
her popularity as to being the “Girl about 
school” to Maxine Hoover. 

Jane Pressel leaves to Frances Lee her art 
of fluent conversation and her ability to press 
much desired information from an unsuspect¬ 
ing person. 

Dorotha Rhinehart, the girl who can quote 
famoLis personages as readily as she says 
“Good Morning,” wills her ability to lead 
devotions in G.R. to Eleneida Craig. 

Herman Roth gives his seldom occupied 
place in Physics Class to anyone who has the 
capacity to understand that ‘ ‘ Impenetrability 
is the inability”-oh, well, why bother? 

Logan Smith wills his optimistic hopes of 
a tax-free Utopia, which was an oft-discussed 
topic with him, to Lowell Lester. 

Myron Simpson, the boy to whom “All the 
world’s a stage,” gives his dramatic ability 
to Charles Hormel. 

Estelene Stamm, who peppers the sameness 
of everyday things with her ready wit, donates 

Roberta Ulrich grants her abundant popu¬ 
larity, which consists of a dash of common 
sense, a sprinkling of humor and a generous 
amount of friendliness, to Marjorie Ilaisley. 

Mark Werking wills—whom do you sup¬ 
pose?—Audrey, of course, to any fortunate 
boy who can withstand the onslaught of com¬ 

Wilma Wisehart bequeaths what is the most 
natural thing for her to give away—her small¬ 
ness, to anyone who cares to be the smallest 
member of the class of ’35. 


May this, our will, be executed in the full¬ 
est, letter for letter, from beginning to the 
very end. 

This 25th day of April, in the year 1934 
we the undersigned do set our (name) (seal).

Salt of the Earth 

OCHOOL spirit, like salt, is often lacking 
^ where it is most needed. Many excellent 
undertakings, either in the educational, politi¬ 
cal, or the business world have failed because 
of the utter lack of enthusiasm, an essential 

In the political world, enthusiasm plays an 
important part in the success of a new admin¬ 
istration. Much depends upon the attitude 
and confidence of people who are being served. 
It is in a like manner that cooperation is 
needed in a school undertaking. School spirit 
must be prevalent if there is to be harmony 
between teachers and students or teachers and 

If there were no followers, there would be 
no leaders and it is in this respect that elusive 
thing called school spirit again comes to the 
rescue. In many functions of the school, stich 
as banquets, plays, club meetings, programs, 
and many others, there must be a leader or 
leaders. Inadequate obedience to that leader’s 
instructions results in a backward instead of 
a forward movement. In many high schools 
there arises the problem of overcoming the 

lack of cooperation because of rebellion 
against leaders who antagonize other students 
through their tactless leadership. This rebel¬ 
lious attitude has been entirely lacking in 
Hagerstown schools and the absence of this 
malignant factor has been a stepping-stone to 
the path of success. 

Many people think of school spirit only in 
connection with athletics. The rooting of 
fans along the sidelines of an exciting basket¬ 
ball game is, of course, a spectacular display 
of this desirable element. 

But on the other hand it is as nobly dis¬ 
played in our various groups, such as Hi-Y, 
Girl Reserves, Exponent staff, and others. We 
would not be without it. It is our life, our 
abiding sustenance. 

Perhaps it is because we, as the staff of the 
1934 Epitome, realize the needed cooperation 
from the student body and faculty in the 
publishing of an annual that we think the 
most splendid example of school spirit lias 
been shown in the manner in which they have 
responded to our every request, and it is 
with pleasure that we thank them for their 
services. With a feeling of regret we say 
farewell, but in our thoughts there will always 
linger the memories of the enjoyable times we 
have had in the halls of our Alma Mater 
during our high school career. 


Four years we worked together, 

Now our work will soon he o’er. 

We have come to a glorious finish, 
This class of thirty-four. 

We always held together, 

As we worked along the line, 

There’s been many days of hard work 
And often a jolly good time. 

But now we’ve come to parting, 

No more will we stand side by side 

But soon we’ll be scattered, 

Over this earth so wide. 

But we always will remember, 

And look back with joy and more, 

On the days we spent together, 

In the class of thirty-four.

“To be sure, Insure’ 

“To be sure, Insure” 


The class address to the Hagerstown High School Class of 1931 was given by Doctor Schutz, 
Professor of Sociology of North Manchester (Indiana) College. Very lengthy and so intensely inter¬ 
esting as to hold one intent unto the very last word. Its view was intensely dark and mercilessly 
discouraging. We expected him to finish by turning and giving us a glorious picture of dazzling light 
against that dark background, but he uttered not a* single sentence or even a word of encouragement 
or cheer. When he had closed, we yearned to say a few words to the class. As we sat by the stove 
after getting home, we picked, up a scratch-pad and relieved our feelings of dissatisfaction by writing 
what we felt that we would like to say. Really we thought then to write copies and mail one to each 
member of the class, but we could not recall the tetrastich about “Jim Dumps” and being unable to 
find the copy we tossed the scratch-book aside and forgot the matter until recently. On finding and 
re-reading it we were so pleased with it that we decided to hand it to our school. It follows: 

Young people—Members of the Class of 1931—We have just heard a very interesting address. For 
nearly two hours a gentleman who is a careful student and exceptionally well posted on social economy 
has been telling us outstanding incidents and giving us carefully ascertained figures along that very inter¬ 
esting line. He has told us that there are many great problems before the people of the world today, 
and that of these he has set before us three, but without giving any answers—without giving answers 
because he has no answers to give. 

As he is a student blessed with exceptional opportunities to obtain information we very naturally 
accept his statements as true, and infer that as he does not have answers, answers are not obtainable. 
He leaves us with the sickening impression that before us is a bottomless abyss, that there is no chance 
to go around it, no chance to get over it and that we must go forward. For instance he tells us that 
you are going out into the world to look for a job and that there are no jobs.—That within our own 
country there are more than seven million citizens willing to work and unable to find it.—That the world 
does not want men and women.—That continuously there are machines being invented and installed that 
do the work of numbers of individuals.—He mentions one that takes the place of eighteen girls. Alto¬ 
gether his picture is a dark, cheerless, discouraging outlook. It seems to your friend that it is not fair 

to leave this picture alone before you. Your friend does not doubt the accuracy of his statements, does 

not doubt that they are true and only a very few of the like instances that could be cited. Your friend 

knows of many such truths, but with our esteemed Hoosier poet, James Whitcomb Riley, we see and 

so we say, 

The inner side of every cloud, 

They say is bright and shining. 

So we turn our clouds about 

And wear them with the inside out: 

That folks may see their silver lining.” 

When you were told that a machine took the place of eighteen girls, you were given the impression 
that those eighteen girls were left without a means of making a living. And tha.t is the case if those girls 
are brainless machines—but show us a girl that is brainless and we will show you a thousand girls that 
are not brainless. 

For illustration we will take it that those girls were writing addresses and that an addressing machine 
was set in. If those girls are brainless they at once become useless junk. That is just what will become 
of this machine. When addresses are no longer needed, or a better addressing machine is invented, this 
machine will be JUNK. NOT SO WITH THE GIRL. Within her cranium is the gray matter of a fertile, 
wonderful, mighty brain. Her usefulness is not ended just because a machine has taken up the addressing. 
SHE can still write. Maybe she will turn to writing letters, writing statements, writing cards, writing 
advertisements: and, by the way, writing advertisements is a limitless field. Take for instance, breakfast 
food. Almost every home in America uses some brand of breakfast food. The first one was “FORCE.” 

‘To he sure, Insure” 

“To be sure, Insure” 




‘To be sure, Insure” 

“To be sure, Insure” 

“FORCE” was one of the jokes thirty years ago and the source of learned articles and merciless tirades 
in business journals about the time that we first wrote 1900. But "FORCE” was advertised.—The ad¬ 
vertising ran the entire gamut from catchy, silly jingles to educational booklets. We were just going to 
repeat one of those jingles, but we do not quite recall it. It began about a man whose mental and 
physical condition made him “Jim Dumps” and ended “Until FORCE made him Sunny Jim.” 

One of the booklets was “On the Road to Wellville” which reviewed much of our school physiology 
and explained so carefully how “Force” met one’s every requirement in the line of food that one felt 
that he could go through one hundred years of life and never need a doctor if he used “Force.” In a 
year or so it leaked out that a couple high school girls over in a country school in Ohio were producing 
the advertising, that the girl who wrote the booklets was drawing two hundred dollars a month and that 
the one who wrote the jingles and made the harmonious pictures was drawing nearly twice as much. And 
in those days few men drew a salary of a hundred dollars per month. There was probably not to exceed 
a score of hundred-dollar salaries in our own Wayne County, at that time. 

We have said enough. You have listened to a long address and are tired. We are aware that it is 
an imposition for us to take your time. You have been so courteous and attentive that we thank you 
very much. We hope that you have caught our idea and that you will go into life, not as machines— 
not as dumb, driven cattle or as slaves, but as individuals. Members of the human family—made in the 
image of GOD and each a master of his individual fate. Limited only by the diligence with which you 
use THE BRAIN with which an All-wise Creator has endowed you. 

“To Be Sure, Insure

In NOTARY work and in INSURANCE writing, as in other means of obtaining a 
livelihood, one may be “A Dollar Getter” without conscience or thought of the irritation 
and trouble caused by carelessness and ignorance. 

Or, one may be even worse than that—may be without thought or effort of giving 
value into the world in return for the value received. Just offering something on the 
ground that it is “cheap.” “Cheap” wares are always the most expensive wares that 
one can buy. 

Or, one may be intelligent, honest and careful to give a thoroughly thought out 
service, service that avoids future disappointments and trouble. Service of this latter 
class is not costly at any price. 

Such we earnestly strive to give at all times. Consult us as to your Notary needs 
and Insurance wants. It will not be the cause of future grief.
