With a qreat display of brawn and
might these qame freshmen twice conquered
the sophomores in the annual tuq of war to
get a final decision. lt seems the sophomores
would rather keep their feet dry than live up
to last year's record.
Heartened by their victory, freshmen at-
tacked their studies for the coming year.
English, bioloqy, algebra, physical education,
health are required: and from band, industrial
arts, home economics, aqriculture, and Latin
one elective may be chosen. Among the
honor students are Richard Reiss and Maxine
Azimow, who won the American Leqion
awards last year.

Even though they had a rather low season this year 1t would be wrong to say that littl
was accomplished. Next year s football team will be much better because many unfavorable
factors have been changed. The squad will be larger and have more experience and reserve
strength. Facilities for care of equipment dressing and first aid have been greatly improved
Graduating seniors are:
Lawson, Kean, DiRuzza, Sul-
livan, Plackard, and Richard-
son, each made an excellent
showing at his respective po-
sition. Returning lettermen
are: Gipe, Rohn, Etchison,
Ewell, Nacoff, Trice, lim Wil-
son, R. Lewis-the nucleus of
next year's team. Players
who, although they clidn't
make their letters last year,
should see plenty of action
next year are: I. Hughes, R.
Jones, I. Riggs, R. Stelter, P.
Lewis, lohn Wilson.

With the idea of promoting good will
the 8Al's formed a home room club
called "Upanattem." A formal constitu-
tion was drawn up, and officers were
elected. In this home room they had a
ping pong tourney. Richard Cartwright
was the victor. To do their bit for the
Red Cross the eighth grade girls knitted
a small ambulance blanket.
Class activities are carried on during
home room period. Committees appoint-

Washington's birthdays were celebrated
by appropriate programs. Mr. Spear's
English class Wrote a great many plays,
one of Which, their own version of Pino-
chio, was presented in Senior High. Mary
Reiss's performance of Pinochio, which
she played from under the assembly desk,
in that squeaky voice of hers, will not
soon be forgotten.

Since the building project has been completed, the commercial classes have been moved
into two new rooms north of the gymnasium. Both are large and well lighted. A window and
door between the rooms make it possible for one teacher to supervise two classes.
Mr. Spore and Mr. Graham direct the commercial department. Salesmanship and con-
sumer education are new commercial subjects taught by Mr. Foster.
The beginning shorthand class, taught by Mr. Graham, had a writing contest with a
party for the winners. Advanced typing students who have attained the highest speed are
recognized by stars placed on the board to represent each individual's achievements. One
beginning class encourages typing skill by posting the names of the fifteen students with the
At Mr. Graham's suggestion, a bi-monthly school paper was published by the office
practice students. The editor-in-chief was Dorothy Bowers and the assistant editor, Hildreth
Mcliowen. The first edition came out on October 17, 194l. Although the students were han-
dicapped by poor equipment, the results were satisfactory. Since there is now a paper
shortage, the publication has been discontinued as a patriotic sacrifice.
The Industrial Arts De-
partment under the direc-
tion of Mr. Hinds has ex-
panded beyond all expec-
tations with the completion
of the new addition. Fif-
teen courses are offered in
the department at the
present time. A class in
blueprint reading was of-
fered for the first time this
semester. An industrial
arts course for girls may
be organized next year.
New equipment and
machinery have been ad-
ded to all areas of the
shop. New machinery for
t h e woodworking a n d
drafting classes was pur-
chased with the proceeds
from the selling of obso-
lete and worn-out machin-
ery. New machinery and
equipment were pur-
chased by the federal
government to carry on
the Defense program.
Courses in shop mathematics, drafting, machine
shop practice and blueprint reading are offered by
the Defense program. Two hundred forty men en-
rolled in these courses in the past year. By giving
its complete co-operation to the Defense program,
the school has received and has on order approxi-
mately 5B5,000 worth of machinery and supplies
purchased by the federal government.
The shop library has increased from a few out-
of-date books to two hundred rental and reference
books and approximately five hundred publications
of related subject material.
Mr. Hinds gives much credit to the boys in this
department for the fine cooperation that they have
shown in helping to organize and put into operation
the different divisions of work.
Most of these improvements would have been
impossible had it not been for Mr. Hinds. His clear
thinking and foresight did much to secure from the
government this new equipment and supplies. His
planning and utilization of all possible space in
the new addition saved much money and made
possible such an industrial arts department as we
We are very fortunate in still having Mr. Hinds:
for people of his ability are much in demand in
industry under present conditions.

Coach Myrle Rife's Crimson and Gold Netters composed
mostly of seniors and sophomores opened their 1941-1942
Basketball schedule by winning two of their first three games.
Enthusiasm built up by the new gym and dressing rooms
hardly offset the disadvantages of last season when the team
had been without opportunity for practice at home or on a
floor of regulation size. This affected the team more than the
average tan can comprehend. The Tigers usually played cr
brilliant first half but during the final periods failed to main-
tain their power. The most thrilling game oi the year was the
Elwood overtime game which was lost by one point. From an
official viewpoint the record was not outstanding but the stu-
dents of A.H.S. feel strongly that Coach Rite and his Tigers
deserve their enthusiastic support. The schedule was a tough
one this year including tour teams that went to state semi-
finals-Burris, Frankfort, Huntington and Tipton. The first two
of these were contenders for the 1942 championship.

The high school library contains about
two thousand three hundred books with
a yearly circulation ot approximately tive
thousand. This is a "live" collection, that
is, new books are continually being added
and old ones discarded.
Current magazines and a pamphlet and
picture collection supplement the books.
They are accessible to all students tor
study and recreational reading.
Routine work is done largely by stu-
dent librarians, trained and directed by
Miss Hieatt. These students receive one
credit per year tor their Work. The present
start includes: Phyllis Glass, Phyllis Gos-
nell, Yvonne Suits, Marjorie Tuxtord,
Bette Dodd, Pauline Peck, Norma Wheel-
don, Mary Million, and Beatrice Le Roy.

This Ianuary the addition to the high school building was completed. A soundproof band
room, connecting commercial rooms and two other class rooms have reduced congestion and
taken most senior high classes out of the Central building. Not only were the basketball
court and gymnasium greatly increased, but the facilities of the whole physical education
program were much enlarged and improved. Concentrating those activities in the new part
of the building also makes possible the convenience and economy ot using that portion of
the building without having the rest open.

Every girl in senior high school is a member of this Girl Reserve Club. Last spring
officers for the next year were elected. At a banquet at the Colonade, Lillian Orme, Phyl-
lis Gosnell, Bernice Buttle, Betty K. Arnold were installed as president, vice-president, secre-
tary, and treasurer, respectively.
Early in the year a mixer was planned to get each member acquainted with her fellow
members. Miss Hash directed the games assisted by Miss Frazier, the sponsor. The girls
made plenty of noise and some made new friends.
ln November Miss Lucille Cook, National Girl Reserve Secretary, visited Alexandria.
She gave many helpful suggestions and promoted the organization of junior high Girl
The freshmen elected Nancy Emswiller, president: Iune Castor, vice-presidentp Minerva
Ann Cook, secretary: and Maxine Azirnow, treasurer.
Miss Hash is the sponsor. Once a month they have a party or special program. They
have enjoyed a skating party, chili supper, and a recreational party in the gymnasium.
Miss French talked to them about the "Ideals of Girl Reserves."
The girls' physical education classes,
under the direction of Miss Harsh, have
had several weeks oi baseball and bas-
ketball practice. Volley ring and volley
ball have added pleasure to the athletic
activities. To help in the proper carriage
of the body and promote better muscular
coordination, a series of strenuous stunts
were added. In connection with this,
Brace's motor ability test was given to
each class to test the balance of the girls.
The new dressing rooms, equipped with
showers, made for greater comfort and
cleanliness. Four new mats were bought
to replace worn out and dirty ones.
The freshmen ended their
season by winning their last
three scheduled games rover
teams which had defeated
them by rather top heavy
scores earlier in the season.
The remaining four losses were
taken at the hands of two
The young Tigers shared
with their elders the handicap
of being without a gym last
year. This prevented them
from having any junior high
Among the players Iacobs
was depended upon heavily
for his offensive drive, while
Mottweiler, Porter, and Iim
Swindell contributed to both of-
fensive and defensive play.
Donahue efficiently filled the
back court position most of the
season. Mohler, Clegg, Nelson,
Hand, Benson, and Muey all
saw action that helped to make
a successful season for the
freshmen team of l942.
Thirty-five players, a combi-
nation of the seventh and
eighth grade boys, formed the
pool from which future Tiger
teams will be drawn. Coached
by Mr. Prichard, they worked
hard and enthusiastically and
showed definite improvements
in their playing. They lost only
five out of eleven games and
succeeded in defeating Orestes
twice and Cunningham once.

Home economics courses offer girls practical training for home making. A full four-
year course would include, in the first year, planning well balanced meals, considering
food stuffs and calories. Principles of balanced design, color harmony, and rhythm are
stressed in sewing classes. One simple article is made.
During the second year advanced foods and canning are taken up. Home nursing
and care of the child includes study of diseases, first aid, making beds, and taking
temperature and pulse,
The third year deals with house furnishings and budgets. Clothing design, textiles
and colors are studied in connection with sewing in the second semester. Usually each
girl makes two dresses or a suit. When completed these are put on exhibit in a style show.
The fourth year student chooses the subject on which she wishes to specialize, and
makes a more thorough study of it.
Early this year the junior class chose Donald
Dickey, president: Bill Poppellwell, Vice-presi
dent: Dick Lewis, secretary: and Harold lar'
rett, treasurer. Lillie Hysong later replaced
Bill Poppellwell who withdrew from school.
Skating parties and a dance after a basketball
game were among the activities of the class.

lointly the Red Cross and the
school city provide for the services
of Mrs. Meyer as school nurse. She
has filled this position for ten years.
One of the important factors of her
job is early correction of physcial
defects. Campaigns against com-
municable diseases which urge im-
mediate immunization are part of
her work. Hearing tests which are
required by state law were given
this year with audiometer and pitch
One of the projects ot the Iunior

of two knitted ambulance blankets.
The club, under the supervision ot
Miss Hieatt, made the six inch
squares according to Red Cross spe-
cifications and sewed them together.

The Student Council is the connecting link between the faculty members and student
body. Some of the duties of the council are to promote a better school spirit, create a respect
for scholastic achievements, and promote the general welfare of the school.
This organization may regulate and direct school drives, charter organizations or clubs,
sponsor school activities, and promote school spirit and sportsmanship.
ln the past the council worked for adoption of the home room system. This year the
organization provided the devotional period in which, every two weeks during home room
period, a different church is represented.
A self-serving coca cola machine was a source of profit for the Student Council and for
a general fund for the school. Other money making activities were a dance and intra-
mural basketball tourney.
On December 5, 1941, the Student Council attended the fifth annual meeting of the lndi-
ana Association of Student Councils in Anderson. About twenty-five schools were represented
by more than 200 delegates.
The officers of the Student Council are: president, Harrel Laney vice-president, Patricia
Smith: secretary, William Hicksg and treasurer, Betty Fuller. Dorothy Bowers, lohn Lane, Betty
Arnold, and Eugene Ludlow complete the membership.
Two freshmen, Bill Muey and Bus Almack, serve the ninth grade as the regular council
does the senior high.

Although track and field athletics are the oldest known sports, they are seldom much
publicized in high schools.

What is the matter? Don't you like the Way the book is arranged? We
didn't expect all of you to. You will have to admit it is different. We pre-
ferred the unconventional in yearbooks. Our idea was to portray a year at
Alexandria High School. You seniors that are disgusted because you are
in the back section, remember seniors are buzzing around and showing oft
more in the spring than fall. ln the light of this We hope you will reconsider,
TO SPECTRUM STAFF AND ADVISERS:
We have thoroughly enjoyed making this book. Without the aid of Miss
Hieatt, Mr. Hinds and Mr. McDaniels it would have been entirely impossible.
Special credit and thanks are due Dick Lewis, the snapshot photographer,
and Mr. Esley, who did the formal photography.
Lillian Orme, editor,
Raymond Griffin, business manager.
