If I could go a sailing in a ship, 

I'd watch the water rippling swiftly by 

And as I listened to the gull's shrill cry 

The winds sharp breath the Hying sails would whip. 

I'd feel the cold air stinging on my cheeks 

And sec the sun shine bright in clear skies 

I'd watch the waves that quickly fall and rise 

And sail the seas for countless thrilling weeks. 

Hut if there was to come a sudden storm 

That rocked the ship and tossed it to and fro 

Then I would wish that I could quickly go 

Hack home where everything is safe and warm 

And yet, it seems a shame that all for fear 

I'll miss the days at sea when all is clear. 

Freda Pyle. 

The Porthole 






Phoenician Ship 

From the earliest time down almost. to the 
Christian Era the Phoenicians with a real 
Senilis for sea commerce and warfare, 
led all others afloat. They were great 
navigators and their exploits remained 
unequalled till the days of Columbus. 
They voyaged for tin to Cornwall in 
Britain and their influence had its effect 
upon early navigators of the North. 


To the Spirit of Adventure which has made 
man reach out to grapple with the unknown, which 
has made possible the evolution of the giant am- 
phibian, from the rude hewn-log canoe of prim- 
itive man, and which will always continue to urge 
men on to seek and to discover, we, the Senior 
Classes of Shore High School do dedicate this 


In compiling the 1931 Porthole, we have tried 
to include as much of the daily life and activity of 
Shore as it has been possible to put in these few 

We hope that in the years to come, this annual 
will bring back pleasant memories of days spent at 
Shore. If so, we shall be amply repaid for our time 
and effort.

Roman Galley 

The Romans, while they were not a race 
of natural seamen, were admirable ship- 
wrights. After the Punic Wars with Car- 
thage they developed vessels that must 
obviously have been seaworthy and not 
unhandy to manage. The same ideas of 
organization and discipline for war that 
made Rome s legions invincible were 
applied to the fleets of Rome with the 
same results.

Viking Ship 

About the time of Caesar's invasion of 
Britain the Vikings were building vessels 
remarkable for strength and seaworthy 
qualities. It is no exaggeration to say 
that no people in the course of history 
have been able, within the limits of their 
size and purpose, to improve on the 
Viking models, and no lover of ships can 
withhold his praise of these beautiful 


Ship of Columbus Time 

The period of long-voyage seafaring had 
begun and new types of sea-going vessels 
had to be built. Caravels (beautiful form) 
were the most popular ships between 
1490-1 510. In the ever-thrilling accounts 
of his voyages that Columbus himself has 
left to us, are many lights on the behaviour 
of these Caravels.

THE PORTHOLE • Nineteen Thirty-one 



Our genial, kindly chief executive, Mr. Wilbert A. Franks, has been 
well known and respected by this community for eleven years. This 
period has seen great changes and improvements in our educational 
system; additions to the buildings have been built, and new and modern 
equipment has been installed. He has spent much time in the careful 
study of Euclid schools, and the results have been many and excellent. 


Mr. Daniel E. Metts is in his thirteenth year as the principal of 
Shore High School. A small building, housing twenty-two Senior High 
pupils has grown, under his steady careful guidance to a large and 
beautiful school with an enrollment of which he is very proud. His 
influence has been growing with the school and his kindly advice is 
eagerly sought by every pupil.

1841 is the date set for the beginning 
of a period that saw the fastest sailing 
ships ever built in history. We are apt 
to think that this is the age of speed, but 
there are no vessels of the present time 
that can equal under sail the records that 
were made between 1850-1870. The 
clippers exceeded in speed and beauty 
anything that had ever been seen pre- 
vious to their time.

Steam Ships 

In the middle of the last century experi- 
ments were going on in the application 
of steam to ocean shipping. The navy 
men did not like steamships, or believe 
much in them, but they could not very 
well shut their eyes to the advantages of 
such vessels in war. 

"The Great Eastern", considered one of 
the wonders of the world, was about 
six times the size of the largest vessel 
that had ever been known, and con- 
sequently caused a great sensation.

THE dream of many a by-gone business manager was realized this 
year when tbe subscription of the Breezes went over the top with 
four hundred and twenty-five subscribers. 

The Shore Breezes, the weekly four page publication of Shore High, 
and often, as the calendar dictates, a twelve page edition in holiday at- 
tire, was founded in 1921 by various members of the English Classes. 
Since then the Breezes has passed two very important mile-stones; 
Miss Swartz, a former member of the faculty, established journalism as 
a full credit subject in 1929, and Miss Boucher, tbe present faculty ad- 
viser, introduced the svstem of a journalism class separate from the 

The Breezes has succeeded in maintaining a high reputation among 
Greater Cleveland high school papers and was represented at the Na- 
tional Scholastic Press Association Convention, recently held in Cleve- 
land, by five staff members.

'HE Student Council, under the leadership of Mr. Metts and Miss 
Falberg, have a membership of twenty-six this year. Members of 
this organization are elected by the different classes and home-rooms, 
for the purpose of promoting and furthering the ideals of good citizen- 
ship in our high school. Each year the Council sponsors several pro- 
grams. The most outstanding ones this year were the Installation of 
Class Officers, The Armistice Day Program, Senior Assemhly and Na- 
tional Honor Day Program.

T is evident that every organization must be advertised to be suc- 
cessful. In 1924, the Advertising Committee was organized with that 
thought in mind, and Shore High has seen that "it pays to advertise." 

Since then the committee had become indispensable to the school. 
Not only does it advertise, but its members sell tickets and collect them. 
This is a very thankless job, but these loyal advertisers take it upon 
themselves without grumbling, and are glad to help make all games the 
big successes that they usually are. 

Mr. Spangler, the sponsor, selects persons of reliable character for 
this committee and insists that they have no failing grades. 

This committee is the power behind the success of many of Shore's 
important activities. Whatever the weather, rain or shine, these 
Shorites of the Advertising Committee are seen on the football field at 
every game. They have also been of valuable assistance during the 
basketball season.

UNDER the baton of Mr. John F. Beck, director, the orchestra of 
Shore High has just completed one of its most successful years. 
The outstanding achievement of the music department in the past 
live years has been, undoubtedly, the formation and equipping of this 
twenty-three piece organization. The orchestra has studied and rend- 
ered such difficult compositions as selections from "Carmen" by Bizet, 
and "Mignonette" by Beethoven. The group is striving to further ad- 
vance music appreciation and cultural entertainment at Shore.

ND here it is, the Band! Capably directed by Mr. John F. Heck, 
the band consisting of twenty-five members has succeeded in the 
past four years in establishing for itself a place of importance among 
school activities. 

With the air of collegians and the dignity of marines, their martial 
strains have stirred the spirit and amplified the pep of each individual 
present at foot ball games and school rallies.

THE Girls' Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Rehberg, has had 
a successful year. The club has fifty members, most of whom are 
new. The girls made their first appearance at the installation of of- 
ficers. At Christmas the Cleveland News sent out photographers to 
Shore to take pictures of the members and to get a story on the tradi- 
tion of Christmas Carols, which the club render every year for the high 
school and lower grades. The Glee Club has been in existence sixteen 
years. The production on which they worked this spring is the light 
opera, H. M. S. Pinafore.

THE Boys' Glee Club, under the leadership of Miss Barbara Rehberg, 
has been very fortunate this year in that half of its members are 
"old timers." The boys sang at the program for the Installation of 
Officers at the beginning of the school year and also for the February 
class graduation. Much of their time has been given to the production 
of the spring opera H. M. S. Pinafore. The Glee Club has a membership 
of thirty.

THOUGH not yet in existence two years, the Hi-Y of Shore, sponsored 
in the past by Mr. Grubb, former Y. M. C. A. assistant, and under the 
present guidance of Mr. Pohto and Mr. Karris, manager of the North- 
cast Branch of Y. M. C. A., has developed into one of the most enter- 
prising clubs in school. 

Any hoy of the upper three classes in high school is an eligible 
candidate for membership. Because the membership quota is limited 
to twenty-five members, the system of voting members into the club was 
adopted this year. This latter factor suggests that in the near future a 
second Hi-Y chapter may he organized. 

The purpose of the club is first to be of service to the school and 
community, and second to create and maintain a high standard of 
Christian character. 

Meetings are held every Monday evening, with a dinner preceding 
the business meetings of the alternate Mondays. Numerous social func- 
tions have been sponsored this season by the club.

THE Friendship Club, which was begun at Shore as Girl Reserves in 
15)28, has flourished this year under the able direction of Miss 
Havens. The membership roll has reached fifty girls, all of whom have 
earnestly tried to carry out the principles of the club which are to ren- 
der service and to carry into daily life the improvement of spirit, mind 
and body. 

Group meetings were held each month at which programs were 
given and discussions held. Various social meetings have also been 
held. Chief in interest in the activity of the club has been the work 
of the Ring group under the leadership of Helen Horwitz. Members of 
this group worked for rings, the winning of which was considered an 
honor and a privilege. 

During the year the club has worked to accomplish deeds of serv- 
ice. Baskets were distributed at Thanksgiving to several families. 
Carols were also sung at Christmas. The girls, wearing white dresses 
and carrying lighted candles, symbolized beautifully the spirit of the 
holiday season. In order to learn more of the ideals of the parent 
organization, the Y. AY. C. A., representatives of the Friendship Club 
attended conferences during the year, the most important of which was 
the Conference held at Lakewood, March fourth and fifth.

THIS play, the first mid-year play ever given, turned out to he a howl- 
ing success. Howling is right too. It showed us some hitherto un- 
known talent in the line of acting. The ever-blushing Rob is the one 
who surprised everyone by his natural performance. The entire cast 
gave a very admirable interpretation of this side-splitting farce. 

The story dealt with an old professor, who thought he had dis- 
covered the elixir of youth. He persuades the old general, who wants 
to marry the professor's young daughter, to take the elixir. The profes- 
sor leaves the room for a while and when he returns the general is 
gone and a baby is in his place. The elixir is spilled and there is only 
one conclusion to be drawn. A general mixup follows, in which the 
daughter seemingly becomes a baby again because of the taking of the 
youth-growing liquid. Well, everything turns out splendidly, but if you 
missed seeing Rob and Scott rocking the babies and singing to them, 
you missed the best laugh of the year. 


THIS play, a dramatic mystery drama in four acts, will be presented 
by the June Senior Class. Much opportunity is given for clever act- 
ing and dramatic situation and members of the cast have excellent op- 
portunities for splendid acting both individually and in groups. 

These few words give briefly the thread of interest in the plot: 
Tbe Vulture, a super crook, is the first to score in the contest of wits. 
His arch-enemy, the police inspector, is mysteriously murdered. The 
crime is committed in an isolated farm house, where the murdered man 
has been invited. Everyone in the house falls under suspicion including 
the maid, the brutal victim of the vulture, the two lovers, and a pre- 
tended French maid, as all have good reason to hate the murdered man. 
A correspondence-school detective, who specializes in finger prints and 
is just brimming over with bright ideas, finally helps the police detec- 
tive solve the crime. 

Staging of this play will be under the direction of Mr. Raumer. The 
cast will have to work hard to equal the play "Second Childhood" which 
was so well given by Shore's Mid-year Class.

H. M. S. Pinafore, a comic opera, was given at Shore High School, 
March twentieth, by the combined glee clubs. This was the first time in 
the history of Shore, that the clubs have presented a comic opera. The 
success of the production was due to the untiring efforts of Miss Rehburg 
and Mr. Reck, and to the splendid scenery and lighting effects arranged 
by Mr. Case and his group of student assistants. 

Ralph Rackstraw (Otto Longo) is a common sailor of the lowest 
rank. As fate would have it, he is desperately in love with his captain's 
daughter Josephine (Rernadine Koman). Rut Josephine's father (Rob- 
ert Rurgert) has other plans for his daughter, and has made a match 
between her and Sir Joseph Porter (William Clymer), the ruler of the 
Queen's Navy. Josephine, however, returns Ralph's love, and when 
Sir Joseph becomes aware of this, he has both the captain and Ralph 
thrown into a dungeon. Little Ruttercup (Jane Witmer) interferes, and 
confesses that when she was a young and charming nurse girl, she 
mixed two babies of very unequal rank. 

The high-born babe was Ralph, the other was the Captain himself. 

So in spite of the pessimistic predictions of horrible Dick Deadeye, 
(John Himpleman) the romance ends happily. 

The production of "Pinafore" marks an achievement at Shore due 
to the increased difficulty of "Pinafore" over operettas of previous 


THE Music Appreciation course has been offered at Shore High School 
for two years. Recently it has been decided to give credit toward 
graduation providing the student has a unit or more in music. 

The course helps students appreciate the work of the Glee Clubs, 
Radio Programs, and musical works. It includes the history of music, 
lives of famous composers, and learning to recognize tones of instru-

Steamships increased to a degree un- 
dreamed of, in size, in speed, and in 
luxury, until the World War came to 
throw the commerce of the nations into a 
confusion from which it has not yet 
entirely recovered. The day of the crack 
liner, the ocean "Greyhound " was here. 
These years have been a time of rapid 
progress in the detail and the inner

Megaphone Club 

NEW organization putting plenty of zest into the pep meetings this 
year was the Megaphone Club. The entire club was seen many 
times during the football season, but preference was given to seniors for 
leading the cheers. Next year the underclassmen will take their places 
ably for they have been well instructed by the seniors. The club has 
done much in its first year. With Mr. Pohto as a sponsor, they intro- 
duced new yells, tried to organize the rooters at basketball games, and 
gave instructions to would-be-cheer-leaders. Copies of all the yells and 
songs were mimeographed and distributed. The cheerleaders also led 
songs this year at rallies, putting more life into them. 

It is hoped that the Megaphone will put even more spirit into Shore 
athletics in the future.

When in the distance burns the 
foliage in splendor 

Above me 

I can see 

Through tangled lace of twigs 

The blue of sky dream softly 
down in languor. 

Then do the crisp leaves rustle 
and stir 

Beneath my tread, 

And overhead 

Through sweet-scented drying 
wood, the whir 

And Hash of hidden wings. 

Nothing to you, these things, per- 

To me, the mad riot of a year 

Before it doffs its summer clothes 

To battle with the winter snows. 



Cold, fog drenched nights; 
The dripping, lisping whisper 
Of rain on leaves. 

The grey fields laced 
With broad, hoary disks: 
Spider webs. 
Each filmy thread 

Behind that tree, 

In that darkling spot, yonder, 

Just now, I thought I 

Saw sheathed in gloom 

A dim form drifting. 



The trees are muled harps of the 

In the flaming dusk of sunsets in 


The black and somber boughs and 

Sigh and swing in melody; re- 

The tender, misty green of leaves 

And dream softly on, in Novem- 
ber, November. 



On a bleak day in December 
The biting, icy blasts whip 'round 
And blow dead leaves about; 
Stony hard and frozen ground 
(1 rasps in mighty hand 
Shivering weeds and oak trees 

And over all, cold-lighted, waning, 
The frigid sun in bleakness 




When the first warm wind 

Tickles the sleeping buds 

And makes them burst laughing 

The gray and ancient apple tree 
Awakens too, 

And beauty surges over it, 
Like a tide 

And it holds its branches wide 
To bear a sea of stars, misty, 

Dainty pink and white, perfumed 
With the dreams of an awaken- 
ing year. 

Underneath the tree, 
The frail stars float 
In pools of swaying grass: 
Reflections in green water.

Scoti did exceptionally good 
work at tackle after being shifted 
from center. He was as good a 
tackle as he was a center. He was 
always reliable and sturdy. This 
is Scott's last season at Shore, and 
his loss will be keenly felt by the 
squad next year. 

"Art" was one of the biggest 
men in the line this year. He was 
there to make a hole in the other 
line to gain the extra yards. Art 
was one of the reasons why our 
line was so much stronger than 
last year. At charging and block- 
ing he was a master. His ability 
will be greatly missed as he will 
he graduated in February. 


"Dick" was the steady player 
and teammate he has proved to 
be in the past. When his serv- 
ices were required at another post 
he fulfilled the expectations. This 
was proved by his marvelous 
game as fullback in the Bedford 

Eli took over the reins of the 
center from Scott and proved to 
be equal to the call. Eli was a 
mainstay in our lines and on the 
offense he worked hand in hand 
with his partners. Playing a 
steady game he had no chance 
for the limelight, but we know he 
was "there".

"Duane," although a sopho- 
more, is an old letter man. He is 
one of the few that have earned 
his letter in his first year. He 
played a steady game, which 
shows great promise for the com- 
ing years. He has speed, weight, 
nerve, and "football brains." 

"Mona" played his first year of 
football, but by his performance 
he showed his ability on the field. 
Gerard still has a year to play 
and we can be sure that he will 
continue turning in his usual good 

"Rob" was the other half that 
furnished us with excitement. He 
played his best game this year 
against Bedford, in which he gave 
an exhibition on the best way to 
block punts, run, and tackle. " He 
blocked a punt that started 
Shore's scoring machine. Rob 
has always played a steady game 
that has put a punch into the

All Steve lacked this year was 
a few pounds of brawn, although 
he was not lacking in grit and a 
willingness to learn. He will re- 
turn next season and we can be 
assured he will fit in the football 
machine as well as last year. 

"Ralph" was one of the new 
guards this year. He still has 
another year to play, and we are 
all sure Ralph will do just as well 
— if not better — next year.

GILL "31" END 
"Jack" was substitute end for 
Latour, and has earned his letter 
this year. Because he lacked 
weight, he had to make it up by 
his grit and nerve. Although this 
is Jack's first season as a regular, 
he will be graduated in February, 
and we all will be sorry to see 
him leave. 

Mcdonald "33" guard 

"Mac" was another lightweight. 
He hasn't had a chance to show 
us how much he can do, but we 
expect a lot from him next season, 
for he is only a sophomore, with 
two more years of service before 

"Carl" proved to be a real 
probe to the nerves of the team. 
He displayed his wares on many 
occasions and most noticeably at 
the Brush and Madison games. 
He was an ardent student for any 
improvement and we all regretted 
his departure from Shore. 

"John" surely did his part. He 
furnished thrills time and again 
on sweeping end runs, which 
usually ended over the goal line. 
Intercepting passes was his spe- 
cialty. He was third highest point 
scorer in the E. G. C. C. this year. 
He was a good back, and we will 
regret losing him. 

Angelo was our "g r o u n d 
gainer"; he usually added yards 
time after time by his reckless 
and daring plunges. He was the 
"main spring" of our team in the 
Shaker game and thrilled us by 
his brilliant returns of their 
punts. We shall see him again 
next year.

MONG the fifty-eight candidates reporting for basketball were 
found three lettermen from the 1929-1930 varsity: Dick Latour, 
forward, Carl Testa, forward; and Ex-Captain Crampton, center. 

After the Shaker game, the team was somewhat revamped and fin- 
ished the first round of play with Carl Testa and Art Brown as forwards, 
acting-captain Scott Crampton at center, and Dick Abbot and Wesley 
Bonnema as guards. This combination won two of the five first round 
games, the most notable of which was the sound lacing handed the Cen- 
tral team on the Central floor. The team scored an average of 18.8 
points per game as against 25.6" for its opponents. 

The second semester found Bob ('dark supplanting the graduated 
Crampton with Steve Fox and "Mona" Montana along with Bonnema 
and Abbot generally rounding out the first quintet. 

This new varsity, captained by either Montana, Abbot, or Bonnema, 
failed to win any of the remaining games, although offensively they were 
more consistent, averaging 19 points per game, although defensively 
they were somewhat inferior to the first semester varsity. 

(ierard Montana was elected honorary captain for the season.

THE 1930-31 season in wrestling was very successful. With Mr. Pohto 
in charge, the team joined the Greater Cleveland Interscholastic 
Wrestling Conference. 

In this league, which includes some of the largest schools in Greater 
Cleveland, Shore was victorious in five meets, losing to three — Univer- 
sity School, John Marshall and John Hay. 

The Green and White also won a surprising 28-13 victory over 
Euclid Central in their inter-city meet. 

Three members of the team placed in the finals of the Greater 
Cleveland Wrestling Tournament which was held at West Technical 
High School on March 11-12, 1931. 

Captain-elect William Whalen received a gold medal for winning 
the Conference Championship in the 95 pound class. Captain Eli Fox 
received a silver medal for second place in the 135 pound class, while 
Hud Keller received a ribbon for third place in the 125 pound class. 

The members receiving Varsity letters were: Captain Eli Fox, 
Captain-elect William Whalen, Hud Keller, John Henning, Joe Whalen, 
George Morris, Rudolph Nosse, Dick Latour and Jack Gill. Joe Hold 
was awarded the manager's emblem. 

Of this group the team will miss Captain Fox, Jack Gill, Dick 
Latour and George Morris when the season opens next fall.

THE light weight team playing its first regular schedule in the Eastern 
Conference deserves especially to be mentioned. The final stand- 
ings show that they missed a tie for first place when they lost to Bedford 
here in a hard fought contest, losing 25-24. 

To Shore light weights goes the distinction of defeating the Brush 
team for the first time since 1928. 

Shore light weight team was generally represented by John Brigleb 
and John Tippen, forwards; Wilkomm, center; Parenti and Lauderback 
or Charles Wick, guards; Bed Wohlgemuth, Ivan Garapic, and Melvin 
Biehe distinguished themselves toward the end of the season. 

Angelo Parenti was elected honorary captain.

LTHOUGH there were only three letter girls hack from last year, the 
season proved fairly successful due to the fact that there was good, 
new material availahle for the coach to develop. Shore Girls came in 
third in the conference, winning three games and losing three. How- 
ever, two non-conference victories and one defeat can he added to the 
list, making the season total — 6 victories and 4 defeats. 

Captain Ruth Nason, a veteran from last year, played center during 
most of the season. Her lack of height was a handicap, but in spite of 
this she outjumped most of her opponents. Ruth's accurate shots made 
her high-point scorer in most of the games and also for the season with 
a total of 111 points. 

"Flop," our diminutive and agile forward, developed from a sub 
last year into a regular forward. She too put a high percentage of her 
shots through the loop, placing her second in the season average. With

the floor, kept down the opposing team's scores by playing in the posi- 
tion of basket guard. Her height was a great asset in intercepting passes 
and preventing more than one basket during the course of a game. 

Gretchen Schwan, the other veteran, played the greater part of the 
season and could be relied upon to keep her forward in check. She was 
quick and especially good in intercepting passes. Her services will 
be greatly missed at the end of another semester. 

Betty Ann Camplejohn, a second Marian Moffett in height, guarded 
both at the basket and on the line. Starting out as a sub, she rose rapidly 
to the first ranks, preventing many a score for the opposing team. She 
deserves much credit for being able to earn her letter in her Freshman 

Marne Crampton, sub forward on the team, started out the first 
game of the season on the second team, but worked herself up as a 
regular first team sub, playing in the greater part of the games. Marne, 
however, is only a Sophomore looking forward to the coming two years. 

The two "Dots" on the team had much in common. Both were new 
to the squad and Shore this year and both started the season guarding 
on the second team. At the end of the season, however, both were play- 
ing on the first team as line guards. "Dot" Petrie will be back next year, 
but "Dot" Larick is graduating. 

Agnes Palko earned her letter as our cheerful, efficient manager. 
Scoring all the games, refereeing the majority of practices, constantly 
checking equipment, "Aggie" proved a most able assistant to our coach.

T this early stage of the season it is rather difficult to get 
any definite idea as to just what type team we are going to have. 
From last year's successful team, we have hack, Stephen Fox, Eli Fox, 
Duane Stewart, John Brigleb, John Wilkomm, Edward Wilms and 
Angelo Parenti. The outstanding new men are Charles Wick, Joe 
Whalen, Edward Kazmarek, Buster Stewart, Gerard Montana and Al- 
hert Lucas. Judging from the early form displayed by these men they 
bid fair to win regular positions. 

The catching will be well taken care of by the four candidates, Eli 
Fox, Rudolph Matko, Allan Koons and John Wohlgemuth. The pitching 
candidates — Joe Whalen, Edward Wilms, Duane Stewart and Stephen 
Fox — show promise of developing into a formidable mound staff.

EARLY in the season it was rather difficult to offer very much authen- 
tic information concerning the track team and its prospects. 

Captain George Morris, Angelo Parenti, Bill Daw, John Palko, 
Francis Wall, Ivan Garapic, and Boh Clark are the only members of 
last year's squad who reported for early practices — of which only the 
first three were lettermen. 

Coaches Case and Pohto worked hard to round out the team and 
developed a formidable outfit from such as Harry Davis, Hahrle, Weber, 
James Palko, Rudy Nosse, Conrad, Yoger, Calwell and Daw, Freshmen; 
Whalen, (Hark, Wall, Keller, and Maxwell; McCahan, Parenti, Hartman, 
Abbot, and Garapic, Juniors; and Andrews, Morris, Triman and Zook, 

Last year's team finished fourth in the league meet and hope to do 
better with hard work and added experience this season.

THE Leader's Club, composed of students in the Girls' Physical Edu- 
cation ('lasses, had been laboring, very successfully, to reach the 
standard set by previous clubs, although only a few of last years mem- 
bers were left, and a new sponsor, Miss Alhrecht had undertaken to 
keep it going. 

The club started three years ago under the sponsorship of Mrs. 
Mary Walker. It is open only to Junior and Senior girls and in order 
to have a harmonious group, a unanimous vote is recpiired for member- 

The organization has helped Miss Alhrecht, the teacher of Physical 
Education, with the gym exhibition and has created a greater interest 
in gym work. The girls have had many good times socially too. Be- 
sides occasional parties for themselves, they entertain Euclid Central's 
leaders, and are entertained by them once each year. 

]P^EBATING, as a school activity was organized this year under the 
*^ direction of Mr. Baumer, after having been suspended during the 
past several years. Much interest has )een shown in this activity. Sixty 
students responded to the call for debaters. Teams were organized for 
class activity, but it is anticipated that another year will find Shore de- 
baters in contests with other schools. The Ohio State Debating League 
includes this school in its membership, although active participation 
was not taken this year. Discussion of public questions have occupied 
the attention of debaters. One of the questions was the frequently dis- 
cussed controversy — Besolved that Chain Stores are detrimental to the 
best interests of the United States public. Great things are anticipated 
for another year, as excellent beginnings have been made. 

OODNESS! where could LeRoy be going? Dashing madly down the 
hall knocking people down in heaps and not even pausing to walk 
around them, he was creating quite a sensation. Close in his path fol- 
lowed Bill Clymer just as unheeding of the rest of us plebians as was 
our editor, if not more so. 

Determined to find the cause for this mad rush, I followed, dis- 
creetly and very silently. Tracking them down to Miss Vernon's room, 
I stealthily opened the door. But the shock was too great! LeBoy with 
a fiendish gleam in his eyes was madly dashing about trying to listen to 
the reports of ten franzied staff members, reading proof, write the dedi- 
cation, and tell Irma that her picture was just beautiful, all at the same 

Then came the dawn ! All material was to be in the hands of prin- 
ter's that day. And me with a dozen more articles to get! 

Well, one more staff' member was madly tearing her hair and leav- 
ing victims strewn in her wake. 

Was it worth it? Why, we'd do it again, ten times, to make our 
Porthole a big success! Esther Gehring.

Nothing could so well typify the modern

THE PORTHOLE • Nineteen Thirty- one 

WAS seated in the "Cleveland Proper" Dirigible on that cold winter 
day in 1944. It had been eight years since I left Cleveland to teach 
American children in France. As I waited for the dirigble to start, I 
idly leafed the pages of a January Saturday Evening Post and behold 
—there was a beautiful sketch of Doris Smith, advertising tooth paste. 
I wondered who the artist was? I looked in the left corner and saw the 
name of Olga Zetterloff. How interesting— Olga was using Doris for her 
model in advertising "Use It" tooth paste. On the opposite page I saw 
"Macey Vacuum ('leaner Cleans It." So Jimmy was the inventor of a 
cleaner. After turning three pages I beheld a grand picture of a blonde 
— oh! oh! Stuart Miller. I read down and found him to be with the 
Hart Shaffner Marx and was an authority on "What the College Man 
should wear." Just like old Stuart. 

Just then the dirgible started and I could hardly wait to reach 
home. I would see my old classmates of '31 again! 

To take up time I opened my Cleveland P. D. and in the lower 
corner I read an account of stars — why Edwin Judkins was the head of 
Cleveland P. D. scientific page. With his scientific knowledge I won- 
dered not. 

Across the headlines I read "Crampton Wins Debate in Senate." I 
read on and found he was now a Republican senator and had just won 
a debate, which gave U. S. school children the five day week privilege. 
Wasn't that like Scott? Oh well. I knew he would make good with a 
line like his. In the next column I read, "Lowder Wins Fifth Divorce, 
Claims Chorus Beauty Fickle." So Bob had been married five times — 
and yet I was not surprised — not after the way I knew him at Shore. 

At this point I looked around me and there was Selma Lipman ask- 
ing Jack Gill how much spinach to eat. So Jack was a doctor now. I 
soon opened the sport section and saw a large picture of Art Gezann — 
who was now head football coach at Michigan. Three cheers for Art! 

As I looked up there was Rachel Cameron and Libyan Stephanovich 
entering the dirigible. Lilyan informed me she was now a dietitian in 
Cleveland and Rachel, although as quiet as ever, said she was superin- 
tendent of Euclid Public Schools. They informed me Antoinette Water- 
wash was giving lectures in the Cleveland Public Hall on "Women's 
Rights." We all agreed her many reports in Shore must have helped 

I then resumed my reading and found the headlines, "Hicks and 
Longo, Blues Crooners, claimed best in U. S." So Adele and Otto were 
singing together over the Radio — well with voices like theirs was it 
any wonder? 

The dirigible was stopping and I hurriedly gathered my belongings. 
As I paid my fare I saw Carl Wicliern. He told me he was now a pastor 
in Willoughby with a parish of 2,500. He said Stanley Marshaws was 
now the sole owner of Euclid's only Ice Company. He had bought out 
McDonald. So Stanley held true to the statement he made long ago! 

At last 1 stepped on soil so familar in days when I was a student at 
Shore. But at this period I realized I had either read, seen or heard 
about even, the members of the Mid-year Class of '31. Oh how quickly 
times change — and yet I felt proud for had we not all turned out to be 
of some account in this huge world? I leave the question for you to 
answer. Lucille Reddell.

<( A ^^ °^ y° u ncai about Bernice?" "Gee, but I'm glad to see you 
i\ again, it's been fifteen years since we were graduated!" 

These remarks were all heard at a re-union of the June Class of 
1931, held in 1946 at the mansion of the former Freda Pyle, who has 
been married to a famous English poet. 

After greetings were passed about, everyone wanted to know what 
had happened to everyone else and here is what they discovered:

best tap-dancing teams on the stage.

Bernice Armocida has just completed her book on "Why Cheers 
Aid Your Team." 

John Palko has taken Knute Rockne's place at Notre Dame. 

Freda interposed at this point and insisted that her guests eat be- 
fore going on. 


Just as the meal was half over, Esther Gehring breezed in. "I just 
finished interviewing Jane Witmer for the Plain Dealer. She's down at 
Keith's Palace this week and can't come till her act is over. Funniest 
thing — Leroy Collins is playing on the same bill this week. He's be- 
come a famous internationally known violinist you know. Oh yes! I 
have two letters here. John Zook is down South now — he's a great big 
business man from the South. The other letter is from Ruth Witt. She's 
touring the country, giving lectures to Ladies' Aid Societies. 

Virginia Wegman entered the scene at this moment and said she 
had had an engagement to meet Bud. As usual! 

After the meal, the rest of the class told of their various occupa- 

Dick Redden's book, "My Ten Years Spent In College" has proven 
one of the '46 best sellers.

O fellow men and classmates. 
Pray hearken to my woes, 
To the dark and deadly secret 
Which 1 will soon disclose. 

Engleheardt and Harretter, 
(If such he your mystic name) 
Since you have written Algebra, 
Not a one of us is sane. 

Now in my childhood 1 have learned 

That four plus five make nine, 

But if you take those symbols queer 

And about them you entwine 

Question marks, parentheses. 

And many a mystic sign, 

Then Lo! your four plus five 

No longer will he nine, 

A jumbled mass of exponents. 

And yet a different sign ! 

You bite your nails, 

You tear your hair, 

You thumb the pages fast, 

You wonder vaguely in your mind 

When the period will be past. 

And of such, fellow boys and girls, 
Consist these dreadful woes, 
And how correctly to unriddle them, 
Only Engleheardt knows! 

Daniel Amioich.

It's hard enough to go to sleep, 

With all the noise out in the street, 

But it's harder still, to sleep in bed, 

While Latin words swim through my head. 

Great flocks of adverbs, verbs, and nouns, 
Go strutting through the Roman towns, 

They haunt me, till I'm sorely tired. 
And in them I am deeply mired. 

As there I lay and would forget, 

I am seized with vain regret. 
That 'ere I ever studied Rome, 

For we've a language here at home.

THE PORTHOLE • Nineteen Thirty-one 

On Being The Youngest 

\H, MUSES, inspire me that I may have words to express the 
laments of the youngest member of the family! 

My first recollections of being familiarized with the term was 
years ago when I was present at one of those family affairs. You all 
know the kind, when you see people such as Aunt Bertha, Uncle Ben, 
not mentioning the "gohs" of cousins you've never seen before. How 
well I can see the tahle now! How large it looked to me! Oh, such good 
things to eat ! 

"Come on, folks — just he seated". Thus spoke my grandmother. 
There was a general rush, and, of course, even though I was but six 
years of age, I was just as anxious to eat as were the rest. Alas! What 
did I hear but my maiden aunt say, 

"Ahem — there ain't enough chairs, so the little children will have 
to wait for the second table." 

With regret and torture did I try to play with my little cousins, 
watching every few moments my brothers and sisters munching their 
food with delight. Such were my experiences for many of these "happy 
family affairs". 

Years elapse. 

Then came the night when I had my first "date". I was all a-tlutter 
and all during dinner I ate little. 

"Where are you going, sis?" asked my eldest f rater. 

"Oh — she and her 'hero' will probably walk to the neighhorhood 
show," thus chimed in my sister. 

"I am not. He drives a machine". Valiantly I uttered the words. 

"Poof — machine? That 1919 model? Glad I don't have to ride in 
that rattle trap." These cruel words were from my other brother. 

"Children — please !" My mother came to the rescue. 

Ah, me! When eight o'clock came, I was all excited. My cheeks 
were burning and my heart going pitter patter. At last he came and 
I said, 

"Er — I'll he ready in a second. Won't you be seated?" 

"Sure — thanks." Thus spoke the cause of my excitement. 

All was perfect until my big brother came on the scene. 

"Oh — so you're taking my little sister out, eh? Well — you know 
this is her first date, so have patience." 

The cruel wretch, telling that it was my first date ! He at least could 
have been more considerate, hut no — that's what you have to expect 
when you're the youngest ! 

Plainly do I recall recently when my sister was going to a very 
lovely dance. More plainly do I remember her coming to me. 

"I'm going to wear your blue chiffon tonight." 

"Oh, no, you aren't," I said. 

General confusion. She went to mother, I was told the dress "wasn't 
my type," I went few places. What use did I have for that dress? Draw 
your own conclusions. She wore the dress. 

Oh, yes — it's been a jolly time, this being the voungest. I wish I 
had been born twins! Lucille Riddell

THE PORTHOLE ® Nineteen Thirty-one 

Upon Senior Year 

1935 — .lust sitting here reminiscing as I see the students trudging 
back to school; yes, the majority of them are actually trudging! I 
wonder if we trudged in 1931. Of course, we strived to be nonchalant 
and sophisticated and a Senior wouldn't trudge. My goodness, no! We 
were too busy rushing to the many tasks which we thought could not 
he accomplished by anyone hut ourselves. 

The first few days of school were thrilling ones. My! We saun- 
tered through the corridors with a newly-acquired condescending man- 
ner, and could imagine the under-classmen nudging one another while 
viewing us with wide-eyed admiration. How soon were we to learn that 
a Senior is only a person three years older than a Freshman! 

The new teachers were a source of diversion for awhile. "Ah," 
thought we, "here are some more on which to try our time-worn 
pranks." The laugh was on us when we discovered that they knew all 
of ours and told us about many that we had never thought of. 

Eventually the excitement of football, basketball and various holi- 
days passed. School began to grow monotonous and it wasn't so funny 
being a Senior when all the trouble about announcements, cards, and 
the problem of clothes needed our attention. I'll never forget those 
class meetings when keeping order was next to impossible. Finally 
Kid Day arrived, but if we hadn't been dressed up we wouldn't have 
felt any differently because we had already readied that stage when 
we thought a Senior could act anyway he pleased. We had resorted to 
our childish actions again, for it was too much trouble trying to act 
dignified all the time. The Senior play was another event to arouse 
interest, and what an interest! Some were so disappointed when they 
didn't receive a part, and some were really surprised when they did. 
The play caused a lot of friction, but, nevertheless, it was a success. 
One by one the days slipped by until the month of May had passed and 
we were ready to be graduated. 

Commencement! The memories that word brings back! The girls 
were scared to death that their ankles would turn on the new high 
heels while they were tripping those many miles across the stage to 
receive their diplomas. Nothing that tragic happened, but everyone 
was so self-conscious and could not walk naturally. 

Four years have passed and I've just been graduated from college. 
It was just another four years of high school in the sense of the various 
stages through which we pass, but, of course, I've learned a lot more. 
All through life I'll go, going through more advanced stages, but always 
conscious of the fact that they are never as precious as my high school 
days were when I thought I was sitting on top of the world.

Her face so fair 
Upturned to his, 
Bespoke the truth, 
And he with subtle care 
Her thought did share, 
A shriek! A whizz! 
He had the tooth.
