PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
|We take great pride in the
fact that we have an enlarged and increasing alumni who are putting their
impress upon the commercial life of this and other cities, and asserting
their usefulness wherever they go.
We always like to hear of the manifold successes of these pupils of former days, not only because they are proving their business efficiency, but the knowledge of their achievements serves as an inspiration and encouragement to those who are now taking the same course which they have already completed.
Reports come to us from all over. In every large firm there are employed several of the alumni; many are holding Civil Service positions; again others are pursuing their studies still further, by attending universities.
President George DANKWERTH, whom the Western Union Company proudly claims as one of its employees, reports that a meeting of the Alumni is to take place during the first week of April for the purpose of planning a dance.
Taking it for granted that you all are interested in knowing the whereabouts of former students, we shall begin by talking about our last graduating class.
First in order comes its president, Harold WEULE, who is working with his grandfather. "Schmooie" has not entirely departed from our midst for he lends his presence to us every afternoon by reporting for dramatics.
"Vic" HARTLEY, vice-president of the Senior Class, past president of the Student Body, editor of the December '16 Journal, etc., is working on his uncle's ranch in Vacaville, preparatory to entering the Davis University Farm. We hear from him once in a while. Both he and Gilbert BROWN will join Bill GLAS who is completing his first year's work at the Farm.
