On September 5, l955, l22 freshmen entered Alexandria High School, and vowed
they would never be like any of their predecessors. Unfortunately, they broke
their vows, and started at once to get lost. Within a few weeks after the begin-
ning of school, this class lost its timidity and pulled the Sophomores through
Pipe Creek in the annual tug-of-war. This was only the beginning.
The same group, as Sophomores, was able to make its imprint on the minds of
the lofty upper classmen by acting a little less green and using a little more
common sense. Several attempts were made at having class parties, but they didn't
meet with much success. There was a decrease in class membership to lOS students.
In September, 1957, the foremost thought in the minds of the Junior class num-
bers was the Junior-Senior Reception. Class officers for this year were Bill Hale,
president, Barbara Nay, vice-president, Fred Trueblood, secretary, and Dorothy
At the beginning of the school year, plans were made for several money-making
schemes and under the guidance of R. W. Ihne, and Miss Emma Phillips, sponsors,
enough money was made to give the Seniors a reception and still have money for the
next year. Several Junior dances were held and although they were mainly for mak-
ing money, they also helped to bring the entire school together. A revival of the
indoor carnival was staged by the Mothers' Club and the Junior class. Bingo, a
fish pond, cake-walk, and side shows were featured. NIt's Papa Who Pays' was the
play given by the Junior class. The main event of the year was the Junior-Senior
Reception, held at the Roberts Hotel in Muncie.

This year, B8 seniors are graduating. Everyone of them is eager to get start-
ed in life, yet a little reluctant to leave Alexandria High School. The officers
of'the class are president, Fred Schmidtg vice-president, Warren Shirley, secreta-
ry, David Reevesg and treasurer, Bette Prewette. Student Council members are Olive
Oliver, Jack Beemer, and Bob Rothinghouse. Contrary to the custom of former years,
the graduating class took over ice cream, coca cola, and candy sales in order to
make enough money for a trip. A benefit show was held the 25th of April and on May
1, the class play, "Button, Button", was presented. The last mile was drawing to
a close May 21, when Baccalaureate services were held. On the 23rd of May the Crm-
mencement marked the end of the reign of this class in Alexandria High School.

A class of eighty-Seven freshmen began its high school work in Septem er 1956. The
members were all eager to show the rest of the high School that they were ma.e of the kind
of stuff that would get them someplace. Led by Enid Durziisky, Eddie Yclinnis, and Jim
Vogel, as president, vice-president, and secretary-treevurer, respectively, they had num-
ereur Swccessfwl parties. They, in their turn, pulled the fcphumerv. of tiet year into

The sophomore class, having withstood their freshman year, moved into the second year
of high school with great delight and esteem. Their greatest pleasure waw'found in making
the lives of the new freshman miserable, but ala , they met their waterloo, at which time
a few fell overboard, when they were pulled through the creek at the annual tug-of-war.
Following their period of fun, the sophomores settled down to
their officers and student council members. Mr. Stuckey and Yiss French were app
be faculty advisers.
Feeling the need of some money, as well as pleasure, the class sponrorei
party at the Anderson rink, which proved to be a successful venture.
With two years of high school behind it, the sophomore class, which is me
only of brains but brawn, has added much to Tiger squads, will probably bring m
to A. H. S. before its departure.

The Student Council is the connecting link between the student body and the fa-
culty. Four members ere selected by the teaching staff and six members are elected
by the students.
At the beginning of the school year the Student Council forms a schedule for
the yearly activity programs. Because of the crowded conditions in our school, it
was necessary to hold most of the programs in the ugymnasium. Among the outstanding
speakers was E. A. Rowell, who spoke on 'Marijuana and other Drugs.' The exhibition
of folk dancing, tumbling, and track work, given by the physical education classes,
was also much enjoyed.
A school handbook, published by the Student Council this year, has proved very
helpful not only for informing newcomers of the rules and customs of the school but
for collecting and recording information that is often needed about personnel cour-
ses, credits, and organizations.
In an effort to improve the condition of the building, the council has supere
vised bulletin boards and arranged for a series of posters suggesting neetness,
cleanliness, and order. These posters were made by the art class and exhibited in
By selling pop corn at ball games, members of the Student Council earned money

Earl French, Bob Fraundorfer, Lillian Orme, and June Muey.

The Alexandria Camera Club, in its second ye-r of activity, har delvei deeper
into the fundamentals of the fascinating hobby--photography. The clui began the pre-
sent term with work on the developing and printing of ordinary sn prhotr. Following
this fundamental work, the membezr learned tc u.e a photographic enlarger, with
which it is possible To reproduce picture: several Li er their original size.
Through the experience and knowle ge of Miss Catherine Immcl, faculty aiviser,
the members have learned much concerning the composition and background of a good
photograph. In learning this, the member: experimented with table top pictures and
special lighting effects, which proved to be very interesting.
This work and knowledge has been put to a practical use in the production of
the SPECTRUV, the contribution to which has been one of the gre tort activitier of
the club during the year.
The officers are: president, Warren Shirleyg vice-prerident, Bill Erving secre-
tary-treasurer, Robert Rothinghouseg purchasing agent, Eugene Hrobst.

HIGH SCHOOL BAND
Last year the band, in class D competition, placed first in that division at
the spring district contest held at Greenfield. As an awarl, the band was presented
with a beautiful wooden plaque inscribed with gold letters. There are four classes
for bands: A, B, C, and D. The first three are determined by enrollment in the indi-
vidual schools, but class D is for those bands which have been organized less than
one year. Under the competent guidance of Mr. Claude Musselman, the band participa-
ted in the contest which was held this year at Rushville on April 15. The band
worked toward having a spring concert after the contest.
The band played for all home basketball games and had been invited to play at
the Alexandria-Muncie game, which was cancelled because of the influenza epidemic.
Because the band was a good marching organization as well as a concert bend, it was
in great demand by political organizations for parades and campaigns. Money earned
in this way was used for new music.
The instrumentation has been increased only slightly by the addition of new
drums. Plans for the band to earn funds for sousaphones, a bassoon, and possibly a
bass clarinet are in progress.
Although there are a greater number of students interested in band work, a
group of twelve have been holding weekly orchestra meetings with Mr. Musselman. Be-
cause of the scarcity of string instruments, it was necessary to keep this group
small. Its members work more for the enjoyment of finer music than for public per-
Many students have taken up stamp collecting as a hobby through interest in the
Philatelic Club. Not only do they learn about the stamps themselves, but they get a
background of historical, geographical, and artistic knowledge from their stamp
The members learn to classify stamps and to determine watermarks and perfora-
tions. To keep up with the stamp news, the club subscribed to the Mekeel's Stamp
News, which tells of the issuance of stamps from other nations.
Meetings are held once a week at the noon hour in room l2. Under the direction
of Mrs. Katie Slone, their sponsor, the members obtained special first day covers
for many new stamps. Among these were those commemorating Will Rogers, and covers
from the San Francisco Fair and the New York Fair.
An exhibit of stamps commemorating the constitutional celebration was held last
winter. About ten different nations put out special stamps for the celebration of
the constitutional anniversary.
The club has no dues and has open membership and meetings. The present officers
are: President, Harry May, Secretary, Betty Jo Millspaugh.

On January 25, nine girls attended a joint conference of Girl Reserves and Hi-Y

World. The principal speaker war Dr. E. C. Cline, who spoke on the subject: Youth
of Tomorrow and their Encounters.

In the week spent in the camp, the girls learn how to make their club more success-

There are two divisions of the French Club this year because of the large clas-
ses. Meetings are held once a month during the regular class period. Almost every
member has a foreign correspondent. In this way it is hoped that the club can help
to promote a friendly and more understanding spirit toward all foreign countries.
A novel Christmas banquet was held in December according to French customs. Mm-
demoiselles Balmin, Paldiouras and Malliet, French friends of Miss Emma Phillips,
faculty adviser, sent recipes for French dishes, and Monsieur Juan Noriega, maitre
d'hotel on the S. S. Champlain, furnished a French cook book, La Bonne Cuisine. The
dinner was prepared by the Home Economics class, under the direction of Miss Foster.
With the assistance of Miss Catherine Immel, unique place cards were made by the
The club participated in two activity programs. The first was given in December
and consisted of the singing of French Christmas carols, among them
Il est ne le devin enfant
Jouez hauts bois, resonnez musettes,
Il est ne le devin enfant
Chantons tous son avenenant
Depuis plus de quatre mille ans,
Nous le promettaient les prophetes
Depuis plus de quatre mille ans
Nous attendions cet heureux temps.
The second activity program was the play, 'La Faim est un Grand Inventeur.'
The group has worked extensively with puppets. They have made their own dolls
and stage, and have presented numerous shows, the most outstanding being at the an-
nual art exhibit.

Albert Hughes, secretary of foreign correspondence, Paul Jackson. The second divi-
sion officers are: president, Martha D. Boyleg vice-president, Gene Richardson, se-
