D X TI-IE SPECTRUM f FOREWORD We, the SPECTRUM staff of 1932, publish our SPECTRUM, know- ing that you who read it will fully understand and appreciate just what we are trying to portray to you. We Seniors, having finished four years of high school, years full of laughter and tears, happiness and disappoint- ments, are leaving behind us a book of memories that we hope you'll like. As a true heritage, each one of us carries away with us a deep affection, loyalty and gratitude to A. H. S., our Alma Mater. As a theme for our book we have chosen that famous old city, Alex- andria, Egypt. Our own Alexandria, "Not on the Nile, but just as worth while", is equally famous in the hearts of every student in A. H. S. Cleopatra's Needles, drawn as an outline of each of the division pages in the SPECTRUM, were two magnificent Egyptian obelisks of red syenite and originally stood before the Temple of the Sun at Heliop- olis. They were removed to Alexandria in 14 B. C. One has been set up in London, and the other in New York City. The latter is sixty-nine feet thick at the base and weighs 200 tons. It rests on four bronze bases. The sides bear inscriptions of Thothmes III. and Ramses II. The Administration page portrays an Egyptian Pharaoh and his tokens of authority, a whip and a staff. An Egyptian drawing of a bird, said to be a god, makes up the division page of Classes, and the Activities page pictures another queer-look- ing god. Another drawing, that of the Features page, portrays the famous lighthouse which stood oi the coast of the rocky island Pharos. The great lighthouse, resting on a base 100 feet square and of great height, stood for nearly 1,600 years and was regarded as one of the seven wonders of the world. It was finally destroyed by an earthquake in the fourteenth century. 1 The last division page in the SPECTRUM, introducing Athletics, shows an Egyptian drawing of a king. And so we come to the end of our book of memories. We hope you like it.

With his hand on the wheel steering the school affairs away from the rocks of failure, the waves of discontent, and the undertow of discord, Mr. Victor M. Evans guides the good ship A. H. S. with precision attained only by experienced "skippers". He has been principal of the Alexandria High School for two and one-half years, coming here in March, 1930, from the Oakland City High School. With the co-operation of the faculty, the students, and the school officials, he has made these two years stand out as harmonious, successful ones. Mr. Evans was never too rushed to explain to some inexperienced Freshman, or some more learned Senior, just what would be the best route for him or her to choose to overcome some difficulty or problem. Sophomores and Juniors also found Mr. Evans a real pal in times of in- decision. Never too Worried to tell a witty joke, or too forgetful to spring unexpected tests, or too busy to give advice, he has earned the name of being a "swell fellow", which means a great deal in present day slang. To the staff of the 1932 SPECTRUM Mr. Evans has been particularly helpful. Realizing the needs of the staff for financial aid in every way possible, he has shown his co-operation by giving us all the possible oppor- tunities for raising funds for the publishing of the Annual. And so we, the staff, take great pleasure in dedicating the 1932 SPECTRUM to our principal, Mr. V. M. Evans. f fff,fsXfe.f.f1fefs.. 1 93 2 ffxfsfsfWv,f!XjNW.

These students have learned many lessons, some from books and many from expe- rience, which make them better able to cope with the future and whatever it may hold. The class of '32 is the largest class to graduate from the Alexandria High School, the total enrollment at the close of the Senior year being sixty-three. Little was accomplished during their Freshman year, partly because of the "Freshies' " apparent greenness. George Whaley, Genevieve Wood, and Marjorie Lane were the class officers this year, and Mr. Orner was the faculty advisor. Mr. Hugh Townsend, the sponsor during the Sophomore stage, found these stu- dents more experienced. They won the tug of war again, and social events were the outstanding features of the year. Keith Fuller, Ruth Prewett, and Louise Miller served as class officers this year. The Junior year was truly a busy one for them. The first important event was the Junior play, "S10,000 Reward". Then came the most important happening of' the year, the Junior-Senior reception, when the Juniors entertained the Seniors in the gym, which had been transformed into a rock garden. Mr. Williams was the faculty advisor this year, with Keith Fuller, Wilmer Shaw, and Louise Miller serving as class officers. The faculty advisor for the Seniors in this last year has been Miss Hieatt, who has directed them in their important projects of publishing the SPECTRUM and in the Senior play, "Sound Your Horn!", presented on May 10. During the year the class sponsored a lyceum course and several other projects for financing the publish- ing of the Annual. In addition to the class officers elected to serve, Vernon Welcome, Geneva Aldridge, and Keith Fuller represented the Seniors on the Student Council. fr!XfsfXf-!XfsA.jVy 1 9 3 2 ff,,f1W,ffyfsA1fsfx, Page thirteen ffrff A! f sste f ef THE SPECTRUM fAff1ff1,fo-A, ' GENEVA ALDRIDGE Home Ec.

H. S. history. The class colors, black and white, were carried out in the class sweaters purchased early in the year. Mrs. Katie C. Slone was the Juniors' faculty advisor during this busy year, and each Junior feels that he owes quite a bit of his success to her. The class officers and Student Council members were selected at the first of the year to serve the class in executive functions. Four of the Juniors were elected to the National Honor Society at the close of the school year. During the year the Juniors worked very hard to get enough money to finance their activities. Previous to the opening of the basketball season they purchased a pop corn machine and treated the fans at the games to "nice, fresh, hot pop corn". Eskimo pies and "drum sticks" were also sold by the Juniors at the games. Their efforts were successful, for in spite of present economic conditions, they made enough profit to entertain the Seniors at a lovely reception in the gym on May 20. The Junior play, "Digging: up the Dirt", was ,qiven on March 29 before a packed house. The play centered around the efforts of two boys to disguise themselves as Indians after an encounter with a skunk had ruined their only clothes, and the arrival of their "girl friends" further complicated things. Freddie Fuller, Howard Slone, Cletis Redding, Wilfred Meyer, Crystal Thomas, Mary Skehan, Doris Hurst, Jennie Goodwin, Jane Laidle, Irvin Harman, and Charles Roach made up the cast. The Juniors have been conspicuous in sports, too. In the boys' inter-class tour- ney they defeated tho Seniors in the finals, thus winning the coveted trophy cup. Juniors were valuable members of the track and baseball teams and the girls' basket- ball team. In the inter-class field day the Juniors carried off several awards in all divisions of the meet.

The Sophomores elected their class officers and student council members at the first of the school year after spirited elections. Mr. R. F. Daly was chosen as their faculty advisor, and has served in this capacity for the entire year. The Sophs were fond of social events, as they had more parties during the year than any other of the classes. A Wiener roast and hike during October proved to be quite a success, although some of the Sophomores dreamed of cold feet and didn't go because of the chilly weather. In the sports of A. H. S. the Sophomores were "right there with the goods". The veterans of last year's champion Freshman basketball team showed that vacation improved their speed and playing ability, as several of them got on the first and second squads. The Sophomores found the Seniors too experienced for them in the inter-class tourney, but in the consolation game the Freshmen fell before the Sophs' superior playing. In track and baseball Sophomores were prominent and they showed that they are rivals to be feared.

H. S., and especially the teachers, were astonished to see so many new members added. to the Alexandria High School in 1931. There was some doubt as to how and what this new addition of students would change the school, but after a year of contact with the Freshies the upperclassmen are confident that these yearlings have proved to be a valuable and worthy addition to the student body. The Freshmen were socially-inclined this year, so they had several parties. The first one was during the last of October, when they were entertained with a Hallowe'en frolic in the gymnasium. Another party was at Christmas time, when the Freshies entertained in the Kappa rooms, with Mr. Ihne in charge. These Freshmen seem to have quite a lot of confidence in them- selves, probably inspired by their victory over the Sophomores in the tug of war at the first of the year, when the Sophs were treated to a wet time in the creek. In the inter-class basketball tourney the Juniors proved too powerful for the representatives of the Freshmen, but these Frosh have the making of a fine team, so they issue this warning: "Beware, for we have three more years in which to win the coveted trophy cup."

This is the first class of its kind in several years, and the SPOTLITE is the only newspaper published by the school except for the CRIMSON AND GOLD of 1927. The SPOTLITE, a four-page sheet, appeared semi-monthly and sold for three cents. Demand for the SPOTLITE has been so great that often it has been difficult to hold back enough copies for the advertisers. The large number of feature columns, among them Minnie Mumbles, Tiger Growls, Public Opinion, and Don't You Believe It, help to account for the popularity of the SPOTLITE. At the beginning of the second semester an insert was added to the SPOTLITE. Seniors sold the ads for this and the profit Went to the SPECTRUM fund. Five feature editions were published during the year, one at the beginning of the year to boost the operetta, "Oh, Doctor!", one for Lin- coln's birthday, another in honor of Washington's birthday, one when the Tigers Won the sectional, and the fifth one, the Blue Edition, which Wakened much interest for "All Fools' Day". lfvi fsx 1 9 3 2 f-fy-Af-fysfxfwx age 11' y-szx f f f f 1 I f f THE SPECTRUM fs-fs ff-ef fwfsfw Front Row: Rebecca Azimow, Sophomore editor, Don Underwood, Doris Watcher, joke editors, Misses Elizabeth Roop and Evelyn llieatt, faculty advisors, Louise Miller, editor-in-chief, Charles Welborn, Ruth Edwards, business managers, Charles White, Don Jones, John Wilhelm, associate business managers.

Tl-IE SPE CTRUM STAFF When the first volume of the SPECTRUM came out in 1922, the staff had some real obstacles to overcome. Each succeeding staff has met some of the same problems and difficulties in addition to many new ones. Among the new difficulties the most outstanding one was the presence of the depression. Financial conditions were such that the staff decided it would be unwise to solicit advertising from the local merchants, and as advertisements have been the greatest source of income of former annuals, the staff trusts that readers of this book will understand the reduced size of the Annual. The Fort Wayne Engraving Company did the engraving of the pictures, The Benton Review Shop of Fowler printed the books, and Ed- wards' Studio did the photography. Misses Evelyn Hieatt and Eliza- beth Roop were the faculty advisors for the staff. Mr. Evans and Mr. Medsker also gave their counsel on matters which proved difficult for the staff members to understand or decide. Louise Miller headed the editorial staff, Ruth Edwards and Charles Welborn directed the business department, Richard Rosenberger with his Junior associate, "Billie" Sim- mons, prepared the sports section of the book. f f f 1 f f f f f f .S 1932 fifsfffisfsfiyjPfxfifv Page thirty-seven ,fsfxffx f1fXfXfX TI-IE SPECTRUM ff-,fAf fer! ft, Front Row: Mary Margaret Ross, Mildred Shaw, Catherine Zellers, Doris Watcher, Lula Mae Fennimore, Margaret Emmons, Mary Frances Swindell, Helen Washburn, Marguerite Smith, Willis Montgomery.

THE CHORUS The chorus is the organization of all the students taking glee club and chorus Work. Miss Vela Travis, Supervisor of Music in the city schools, was the director of the group. , "Oh, Doctor!" was the operetta presented by the entire membership of the chorus on November 18. The action of this musical comedy takes place in the sanitarium of Dr. Drinkwater, who believes that a drink of Water there is a "sure cure" for all diseases. Involved in the plot of "Oh, Doctor!" are the rich young heiress disguised as a nurse, the lisping, handsome Dr. Cuttem and his romantically-inclined patient, Dr. Drink- water himself and his patients, a mixed group who all hope to be re- stored to perfect health by his remedy, and several others, including nurses, the friend and sweetheart of the pretending "nurse", the "bold, bad robber", and the several choruses. Outstanding members of the chorus appeared in musical programs in other cities, at the homecoming banquet and the bi-centennial pageant. ffX!VX!VX!VNffN 1 9 3 2 f-Nffxfskfvvvx Page thirty-eight f f f f-ef fe-ffy, THE SPECTRUM!X.fifX l Front Row: Irvan Harman, Alleen Whipple, Doris Watcher, Mildred Girton, Eleanor Sherman, Marguerite Zink, Elleen Schmitz, Crystal Thomas, Karl Hennenfent, Back Row: Don Underwood, Cletis Redding, Richard Rosenberger, Marguerite Smith, Miss Hieatt, Louise Miller, Carolyn Hieatt, Leon Etchison, Keith Fuller.

A try-out was held at the first of the school year and the members of the club were those who successfully passed the try-out.

Chasuable. During the Hallowe'en P. T. A. carnival the Thespians staged a pan- tomime called "And the Lamp Went Out". Two casts put on the act alter- nately, and the "skit" was afterwards put on during an activity period for the entire high school. Thespian Club members have also held important parts in the casts ofthe operetta, and in the Junior and Senior plays. ffffff ff ff 1932 ff ffff ffsff Page fhiriy-11i'nc ff X fssfspfsefyfsesfm THE SPECTRUM ffJWfAfA.. l Front Row: Charles Welborn, Woodrow Whetsel, Charles White, Billie Simmons, VVillis Montgomery, Bob Windsor, Don Underwood, Elmer Fink, Edgar Wells.

HI-Y The Hi-Y Club is the largest boys' organization in the high school. The purpose of this club is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community a high standard of Christian character. The Hi-Y group initiated the Junior and Senior members of the An- derson Hi-Y Club in December. In return the Anderson group carried out the initiation ceremony at our school the first and second semester. Club meetings are held every Tuesday. Discussions are given on various topics of interest by individual members. Several business men gave them talks during the year. For the first time in the history of this organization the Older Boys' Conference was held in the Alexandria High School. The two principal speakers for this occasion were Joe Devadanum, a native of India and B. A. Schnell, state Y. M. C. A. secretary.

The purpose of the club is "to find and give the best" and to foster high ideals for Christian living. The programs for the year consisted of a speaker and a discussion group alter- nating with each meeting. A Martha Washington tea, the Golden Jubilee celebra- tion, hikes, and a party for the Hi-Y boys were the outstanding social events. At the Christmas season, about 125 stockings filled with candy were distributed to different children of the city.

Faculty Advisor The purpose of this club is to get more girls interested in home eco- nomics and thus secure a foundation for the duties of housekeeper in their later life. The meetings are held every other Thursday at 3:30 and usually a party is given every month. They do not cook and sew at their club meetings, contrary to popular belief. Parties are planned and given for unfortunate children and clothing is made for other small unfor- tunates, and subjects of interest and value to themselves are discussed. This year the club was affiliated with the State Home Economics Association and five delegates were sent to the home economics conven- tion at Indianapolis. jvyfefxfvxfsfxfr-A 1 9 3 2 frfysfxfxfxfvxfw Page forty-three fsAfsA,fsAf1A, THE SPECTRUM fA!vi,f1Af-fx First Row: Clifton Perry, Rebecca Azimow, Louise Freestone, Lucille Hart- ley, Eva Ruth Metcalf, Joseph Zettel, Ruth Stahlhuth, Martha Montgomery, Zelpha Mottweiler, Eleanor Sherman, Howard Underwood.

ORCHESTRA The high school orchestra directed by Miss Vela Travis is one of the important essentials of the school, as they play for most of our activ- ities which need music to give them the proper atmosphere. An operetta is given every year by the members of the orchestra and Glee Club. The operetta given this year was "Oh, Doctor!" and the orchestra played an important part in making it successful. It also played for the baccalau- reate services, school plays and activity periods. Only sixteen members joined the orchestra the first semester but at the opening of the second semester nine members from the 8-A Class of Junior High joined. Orchestra meetings are conducted three days a week and during this time the members work on marches, overtures, a few popular num- bers and several well-known classical numbers. ffxfWffXfWfofX 1 9 3 2 fefsf1fXfWfdfs-fsf Page forty-four TENWURE5 5 f K X . ,llII.9'ia'lllg L T J xii..

THE VARSITY The Senior class of 1932 of the Alexandria High School wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the outstanding success and loyal work of the 1932 Tigers, Coach Orner, and Manager Evans. We realize it has required the unceasing efforts and cooperation of all to make this yearls team the most outstanding basketball team in the history of Alex- andria High School. This team is the best team that has ever worn the crimson and gold, and the splendid record established by this year's Tigers will be an example for future teams to follow. The sectional tourney will never be forgotten by any member of the graduating class. Although our hopes were realized last year when a band of determined Tigers invaded the Wigwam and triumphed over the Indians in an agonizing triple overtime battle, the winning of this year's sectional crown brought more glory and fame back to A. H. S. because they proved it could be done again. In the regional tourney a great Tiger team went down fighting at the hands of Tech, but the enthusiasm never ceased because the Tigers had accomplished their one desire, to beat ANDERSON. The Tigers' schedule this year was one of the most difficult ever ar- ranged for an Alexandria team, but these boys faced these trials like men and mastered them well. This team was made up of clean boys, both physically and mentally, and their sportsmanship was never lacking. They played the game fair and square, and these two factor alone helped them again to win the sectional title. f-fxffyfxf eescii f'fXXfhfX 1 9 3 2 f fe. ff e...g f fxfsfx f fs, Page sixty-two f Af of-.1 fs from THE SPECTRUM fskf-AfvAfvy Left to Right: Kenneth Stafford, V.

Wil- liams, coach, and James Richardson. THE SECCND TEAM The Kittens come in for their share of praise, since without their cooperation it would have been impossible to produce a Tiger team as the one produced this year. It is the Kitten stage of a Tiger that is the hardest, because then they are taught the fundamentals of the game and receive the hard knocks that it takes for them to learn the game. It is in this stage that a Kitten must prove himself' worthy of becoming a Tiger. The Kittens have a fair record this year, winning eight games and losing eight, all by very close scores. They opened their schedule by taking Lapel and Gas City into camp. The locals met defeat at the hands of the Palpooses, the future Indians winning by a margin of three points. In a hectic game with Cicero the locals emerged victorious but lost an encounter with Mt. Comfort. Hartford City, Winchester, and Marion tamed the locals, but the Kittens' claws were too sharp for Frankton, Summitville, Wabash, and Lapel. In an overtime battle Windfall eked out a one-point victory, but the locals got revenge by defeating Markle- ville the following night. In the last game with Tipton the seconds could not hit the hoop and were defeated by the Tipton netters. This group of boys were hard workers, filled with the spirit and desire to win. They are clean, sportsmanlike boys, ready to fight when the time comes, and always prepared. These boys will make up next year's team, and these qualities speak well for the season of 1932-33. f Af fs, f A f xg f-fs, 1 9 3 2 furytfxf-Af-tfxfefx Page sixty-three fwfvwfxfvx THE SPECTRUM AA-.fsfxffxfsfx THE TIGER RECORD ALEXANDRIA 18, LAPEL 16 The Tigers started good by eking out a two-point victory over Lapel.

INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT Seven teams responded to Alexandria's invitation to compete in the fourth annual invitational tourney. On Saturday, January 9th, Markle- ville, Pendleton, Selma, Frankton, Summitville, Middletown, and Dale- ville came to town with high hopes of winning. Alexandria conquered Markleville in the morning round and Frank- ton, Middletown, and Daleville won their games to play in the semi- finals.

The Tigers went on a scoring jag to swamp the Bronchoes in the final tilt, the score being 35-17. THE SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT Again the Tigers hit the trail to Andersontown and invaded the hunting ground of Chief Case and his warriors with the same determina- tion and fight as the year before. The Tigers showed power by taking the Elwood Panthers into camp by a score of 29-20. Then came the big game of the tourney, the Tigers and the Indians. The Tomahawks proved the mightiest the first three quarters of the game, but the Tigers kept fighting and finally clawed the Indians to win, 14 to 13. Then the day came to a perfect close when the Tigers knocked the gravel out of the Lapel Bulldogs in the final game to win, 19 to 15. THE REGIONAL TOURNAMENT As a result of winning the sectional, the Tigers journeyed to Indian- apolis to compete in the regional tourney. The first game, the Tigers met the strong Tech of Indianapolis team. After a see-saw battle, the Capital City quintet managed to score just as the final gun cracked to win, 18 to 16.

Graduation ends his career in . . . ROBERT BLAKE-"Bob". Our big center whose jumping ability, basket shooting and defense has baffled many opponents. "Bob" will be one of the veterans from this year's strong Tiger team and we expect many things of him next year. EDGAR WELLS-"Ed". A forward, and the "Dead-Eye Dick" of the team. . His cleverness, speed, ability to elude his man and his long shots have been a thorn in the side of the Indians since 1930. "Ed" is a Senior. GEORGE WHALEY-"George". A tall boy with the fight it takes to win any kind of a game. His clever defense and floor work have made him an outstanding player. George has made his last stand for A. H. S. ELMER FOLAND-"Johnny".

S. and rivalry was plentiful when the annual school classic, the inter-class tour- nament was staged on October 29 and 30. The gymnasium blossomed out in bright colors representing the different classes. The drawings were made and everything was in readiness for the opening whistle, with each class having hopes that their respective teams would win the coveted championship cup. In the opening tilt Williams' Junior quintet downed Orner's Freshmen tossers, 29-12. The Frosh put up a hard battle but lacked enough ex- perience to overcome the splendid teamwork of the Juniors. The second game brought together the Seniors and Sophomores. The Sophs surprised the dignified boys by having the better of the bar- gain most of the time, but the Seniors pulled themselves together in the last quarter and began hitting the hoop to win, 34-21. The final game between the Juniors and Seniors was a battle royal. Both teams fought with determination to win and the winner was in doubt until the last few minutes of play, when the Juniors made two baskets to cinch the title, 23-20. In the consolation game the Sophomores downed the Freshmen, 34-12. fs!-,fsf sscx X-fvfsfX.ffX 1 93 2 fp, Page sixty-eight ff Q' J Af ff f , THE SPECTRUM f f 1 ft X K I-fxjvx Front Row: Jean Baker, captain and jumping center, Opal Myers, forward, Louise Fraundorfer, forward, Carolyn Hieatt, guard, Mary Painter, guard.

THE GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM The girls' basketball team under the direction of Mrs. Evelyn Grahame became a new feature of A. H. S. last year, when the team played two games with outside schools. The Tigresses expected to have a full schedule of several games with other schools for the 1931-32 season, but it was impossible to complete this schedule, due to I. H. S. A. A. rulings which made games not worth while. The Tigresses played only one game during the year, one with the Freshman lassies as a preliminary to the Kappa-House of David game. The seasoned varsity girls won by a wide margin, although the Fresh- men put up a good fight. All the Freshman and Sophomore girls of A. H. S. are required to include physical training in their curriculum. These classes give the girls a chance for physical development in addition to the mental develop- ment secured from books. A proportional development in both of these respects is necessary for a true education in the modern definition of edu- cation. The courses include gymnastics, including corrective exercises of all kinds, natural dancing, and the playing of basketball and volley- ball. ! f f ftj ft f fs f fs 1 93 2 f ff-f,fXf..f f cf fn- Page sixty-nine ff X fc-X f K fvx THE SPECTRUM f fa! fsfsfkfcfx First Row: Jerry Smith, Billie Simmons, Robert Franks, Robert Windsor, Ken- neth Stafford, Walter Vogel.

Tl-lE BASEBALL TEAM For the first time in several years Alexandria High School was represented by a baseball team. At first it was decided not to renew the sport in the local school, but such a keen interest was shown by the boys to organize a team that plans were forwarded and tryouts were held. Most of the boys were experienced players, having played on various teams before the high school organized one. Getting a late start, the lo- cals played three games with some of the strongest nines in the county, winning all of them. The team was reorganized again this spring and several games have been scheduled with some strong teams. Two games have already been played this spring. The local diamondmen defeated Tipton, 2 to 1, and Pendleton, 8 to 4. Two games with Tech of Indianapolis and return games with Tipton and Pendleton have been scheduled.

TRACK TEAM The 1932 track team has had a fairly successful season this year, although several veterans were lost by graduation last year. Most of the boys who are new to the squad have progressed rapidly under the direction of Coach Orner. Robert Blake has been the outstanding point getter of the team, taking first place in the shotput in every meet par- ticipated in this season. Blake broke the indoor state record and tried in the state outdoor meet. In the first meet of the season held at Notre Dame, Blake took first in the shot put to give Alexandria 5 points. In the indoor state meet Blake broke the state record by heaving the iron 5115 feet. Blake also took first in the shot put in a meet at Muncie, with Vogel and Besley also placing. The thinly-clads took part in the Kokomo relays, with Blake again placing. In a triangular meet at Marion, Blake, Thias, Vogel, Walker, and Bosley placed. The mile relay team, composed of Quick, Fink, Bender, and Montgomery took third place at this meet, and the half-mile relay team, made up of Walker, Vogel, White and Bosley took second in this meet. In the sectional track and field meet held at Kokomo the locals failed to place except in the shotput, which Blake again took the honors.
