Copeland Ruth Buck SE IOIl Thoroughly worthy of the thunderous applause they are receiving, the Seniors of 1946 step into the center ring of the big tent to begin their five-star performance. Seasoned troupers now, the Seniors weren't quite so polished in the fall of l942 when they entered A. H. S. Their only activity that year was a dance after the Pendleton basketball game. They didn't get above watering elephants in the ninth grade. Like all good workers, they were promoted, and during their Sophomore year were allowed to sell popcorn during the main show. Still rather slow about out-side activities, they did man- age to sponsor one dance and a Halloween party. Their class picnic was held at Mounds Park. VVe hear they bogged down in the mud! Really smooth operators fthey thoughtj as they became Juniors, they began looking for- ward to the time when they would be Seniors and all the classes should say "Allah, Masters" to them. They were in for a big let-down. They now performed in the end ring under the big top. Some of the features of this year's work were a dance after a football game with Wabash, victory over Seniors in class tourney 32-30, and another day at Mounds. Some of those happy picnickers had their fried chicken a' la gravel-clumsey! Give them time. Now-now-the band gives a fanfare-the spot-light beams on this none-the-worse-for-wear class of 1946! Y VVilbur Rubrecht steps into the ring as president with the following assistants: vice presi- dent-Bill Stewartg Secretary-Martha Imlerg treasurer-Leroy Sayre and student council members-Anne Bailey, Gene Ankrum, and Elmer Maynard. The class executive committee and sponsors, Miss Allen and Miss Kerlin, planned a full schedule of activities to last un- til graduation. 'v. . . . ff, 9. Since their class treasury needed a boost, the Seniors started i in to make money. They began by selling hot-dogs and pepsi- ff ' colas at football games, and Miss Kerlin with the aid of joan Q 0 , Carnahan, Betty Walker, Don Peck, and Jim Montgomery turn- .. '. ' ed this venture into a big success. Maxine Jones was chairman C1 of the committee that sold ice cream and pepsi-colas at all the Q home basketball games. . . X. A n' Sp Ov I' .I 1 SENIUB Real hep-cats themselves, these Seniors were chief dance promoters all year. The dances not only made their bank account fatter, but provided lots of fun. Among Seniors who helped make these dances possible were Anne Bailey, Jo Brown, Peggy Seybert, Dick Cartwright, Bill Stewart, and Frank Jones. ' In November the Seniors were measured for their costumes for the Grand Finale, caps and gowns-dark blue with white silk tassels that can be added to other reminders of Circus days. One of the biggest pre-Christmas events was the arrival of Senior rings in December-lovely rings-plain gold, onyx or pearl. Of course, they created quite a sensation. It wasn't long until several, Senior boys had given theirs to their "steadies," and that accounts for the heavy rings weighing down the fragile hands of some "slick chick." Still trying to pad their treasury, the Seniors presented the play "Rip Van XVinkle" given by some professionals. Some say we have better talent here in A. H. S. VVho knows? Time will tell though, because it was right after Christmas that the dramatics class began work on the Senior play- Miss Hieatt directed the group in "Come Rain or Shine," the three-act comedy, presented to an audience of 900 people January 18 at 8 p. m. in the gym. The play was a huge success, and added over 515250 to the class treasury. We didn't know the Class of '46 was so talented. The really star-spangled event of the year was the all-school Spring Prom sponsored by the Seniors on March 23 in the gym. It was quite a gala affair with an orchestra to furnish the super-special dance music. Though their days were chuck full of extra activities, the Seniors found time to plan a Senior trip to Chicago, a slightly solid class day program, and a grand Senior banquet. But the day approaches, the day all have looked forward to, some joyfully, others with a few tears. This is the final show, 'I the last performance, the culmination of four years of study, Ifun, ' and hard knocks. But it was wonderful-every minute of it. f 0 The commencement audience is hushed, each graduate is his throat, the silence is filled with many thoughts. This is it.

Three new teams came into the Central Indiana Conference this year-Monticello, Hartford City, and South Side of Fort Wayne, thus brightening the gym with new pennants. Booklets were sold at the games which gave all the information about the C. I. C. teams and incidentally brought money into the club. The membership was limited by amending the constitution to read as follows: There will be ninety mem- bers, forty seniors, thirty juniors, and twenty sophomores. Twenty-six new members were taken in this year and went through rough initiation at the Hagerstown game. At the Elwood game the girls wore red and yellow sweatersg the red sweaters formed an "A" with the yellow sweaters to outline it. Tiger Club members are looking forward to the annual banquet to be held in the gym sometime in April. The president will act as master of ceremonies. Lettermen of football and basketball will be named and the cap- tain of each team will give a short talk. In case one person is captain of both, another boy is asked to talk. New oflicers will be named for the following year. THE MUSIC DEP BT - The background for many activities at AHS this year was furnished by the Music Department under the su- pervision of Carroll H. Copeland, band director and a new faculty member. The high school band composed of sixty-live members played for nearly all the home football and basketball games. They marched in the Navy Day parade in Muncie and in the American Legion parade at Indianapolis. Their special programs during the year included public concerts on December 18 and March 20 and a Spring Music Show the Hrst week in May. Several new band instruments including a sousaphone, French horn, piccolo, saxophone, bassoon, and two alto horns were bought this year. Also purchased were two cellos and one violo to be used in the school orches- tra that will be organized next fall. In order to give each music student specialized training on his instrument, an instructor for brass instruments and one for reeds were hired to give private lessons to those desiring them.

Those appearing at the games were: Bert Tom- linson, jo DeaKyne, Anne Baker, Dixiana Gross, joan Farquer, Sybil Swindcll, Joyce Etchison, Beverly 0'Bryant, and Shirley Wells.

' This year a regular journalism course has been ollered. The class meets one period a day back by the closely guarded cabinet in room 18. Miss Hicatt is their supervisor. The class, composed entirely of Seniors, gained experience through the publishing of newspapers and a magazine. The students gathered their in- formation and material for these publishings from the student body of the entire school. Late in December, the journalism class began work on the Spectrum. By the last of February they had completed the work on the Spectrum and began to look forward to the publishing of more school papers. E Q3 Q UNIIIB Into the big tent step these proud Juniors. This act started in 1943 with 132 performers. Although they have dwindled to 78 members, these juniors are putting on a great acl, an act that is worthy of the applause they re- ceive. J The juniors are typical of circus performers. Life is not all play, and just as circus people, these students have had to work, learn and train for the future. Through this hard work, training, and ever increasing effort the Seniors of 1947 are already seasoned performers. One reason for their success is their worthy administration-president, Bus Sizeloveg vice-president, Barbara Evansg secretary, Phyllis NVhitmang treasurer, jerry Little. Student Council representatives are Helen LeRoy, Jean Ann Hendryx, and Harry Buckles. Miss Frazier, Mr. Buck, and Mrs. Butler are their sponsors.

On January 19th of this year the class sponsored a successful all-school dance in the gymnasium. Not to be caught lagging, the Juniors wanted something to do in the month of December.

These 10th grad- ers arc an active, loyal bunch who have planned for the time when they too will be Seniors. ' Leading these rushing Sophomores is K. Rayle, who has been elected president for the second straight year. Duane Knotts is vice-president and jimmy Arnold is secretary-treasurer. Barbara Savage and Joanne Tuerlfs are the Student Council representatives, while Miss French, Miss Hull, and Mrs. Buck act as class sponsors. Our ears pick-up the pleasant voice of the barker as he begins telling the audience of the activities of these energetic Sophomores. He tells about a successful Halloween party held in the junior High building. He gives us information on the january l5th skating party in Anderson and the report on the amount of money these Soph- omores have made in less than two years, A smile breaks on the barker's face, and he tries to keep from laughing, but he has just made the statement that the Sophomore treasurer should take some of their well-earned money and buy twenty of their boys some bathing suits. You see, they met defeat in the Tug-oflvar against the Freshmen. This was the first Tug-of-War to be held in several years, and the first one in which this class was a participant. Hard workers these 10th graders are, and they have nearly worn us out gathering this information.

FBES The highest grade in junior High eagerly jumps into the center of the tent to begin their act. These Freshmen are a working, aggressive bunch who get done what they want done. No wonder they are aggressive, for look at their class officers-president, Ann Bakery vice-president, Patrick Donahueg secretary, joe Goldeng and treasurer, Mar- jorie Benson.

UNIUB HIGH Out come thc still growing 7th and 8th graders. To them an act in the big tent is the thrill of a lifetime, though they have to admit, they were a little worried and nervous at first. To guide these two grades carefully for the future is a hard job, but it is made easier by the helpful advice of their class sponsors. The 8th grade have as sponsors, Miss Cox and Mr. Holmes, while lhte 7th grade have acquired the aid of Miss Brannon and Miss Keller. The Eighth grade oflicers are Lois Ann Hon, president, Betty jean Edwards, vice-president, Teena Overpeck, secretary, and Judith Frye, treasurer.

The Seventh grade had a Christmas party in the junior High building. These youngsters like sports, that's why they are such model gym students. The Eighth grade had enough boys interested in football to have a team. They had several tussles with the Freshmen in fall practice. just as last year, Mr. Holmes is the Junior High and Freshman basketball coach. The 8th and 7th graders leave the ring, thus our performance comes to an end. tile have enjoyed giving you this show, for it is a show about you and your friendsg a show that you will not forget in a long, long time.

Mr. Treesh is a strong believer in the "T" formation and tutored the squad on the "T" exclusively. Although some players had minor hurts, and Hall, Sayre, Knotts and Morgan were lost at different times through injuries, the Bengals came through to score 77 points despite the fact that they lost eight games. Although the football team did not win many games, they proved themselves an aggressive eleven. This team usual- ly rallied in the later stages of the game. Against such teams as VVarsaw, Plymouth, and Peru, they overcame command- ing first-half leads and fcll short of victory only when the gun ending the game halted their drives. In winning the Connersville tilt, the Tigers won in the last half against a large Spartan eleven. The high-light game was the finale of the season played against Elwood on the local gridiron. After leading at half-time, the high scoring Tigers were edged out one touchdown by the Panthers. Among the notables lost by graduation will be: Hurst, C. Clegg, Stewart, Kane, Sayre, Rubrecht. Gipe, Howerton, Morgan and Hall. Some of the underclassmen who are expected to see much action next fall are: Little, Allen, Knotts, litchison, jones, Beeson, Kelly, Montgomery, Sizelove, Songer, and L. Clegg. FO0TB LL LET TER Dick Hurst-A light, fast, Senior left end who waited till his last game to make a touchdown. Bill Stewart-Big Bill a rugged tackle was always in there fighting no matter what the score was. He got honorable mention in the C. I. C. Charles Clegg-A heavy Senior tackle whose l90 lbs. was felt by opposing linemen. YVilbur Rubrecht-A Senior that rotated at guard and quarterback. WVas a Une blocker. james Kane-Two-letter man who played guard and will be missed next year because of graduation. Leroy Sayre-Sayre got out his senior year and won a varsity position as center. His weight was a help in the center of the line. joe Howerton-A three letter man who was named on the all-conference team and also elected honorary captain of the Tigers. Mighty tough to stop as a plunging right half. jerry Little-junior end that did most of the pass receiving and will be back next year. Rolland Allen-A junior that saw much action at tackle and should prove valuable next year. Royce Beeson-Royce was a heavy lineman at guard and will have one more year of football. Bob Montgomeryeliob developed late in the season and saw some action. Since he is only a sophomore, big things are expected of him. joe Songer-joe did a Hne job of playing fullback after injuries had hit the squad. He is a bright prospect for the next two years. Robert Gipe-A left half who won four letters while running touchdowns for Alexandria. He will be missed very much. Larry Clegg-Handled the ball as quarterback on the "T" formation. Fine defensive man and will return for two more years. Loren Sizelove-He alternated at left half with Gipe and will play again next year. A little spark plug standing 5' Harry Hall-The team was hurt when Harry broke his arm after the second game. He had shown great promise as a fast fullback. Duane Knotts-As a Sophomore, Knotts saw much action at an end position before injuring his back. Richard Morgan-Dick was a rough and ready guard who, although handicapped by injuries, still saw much action as a Senior.

But not being the type of boys to "throw in the towel" after the first hard round, these Tigers kept pounding and punching until they had 21 taste of sweet victory over Elwood, 43-42, December 5. A winning streak came the first of February as the Tigers began to warm up for the sectional. In a thrilling over-time game with Elwood, February 2, the Tigers put on a great show of team work and once again were the victors, 48-45. One of the most surprising upsets of the year was the Alexandria-Lapel game in the Anderson gym, February 5. Trailing 10 points with two and one half minutes left in the game, the Tigers trotted olf the floor with a one-point victory, 44-43. The following Friday, Gas City fell before the onslaught of the Tiger's offense. Although our score-card doesn't show too many wins for A. H, we are happy to say that many of our de- feats were by Z1 narrow margin, and every team had to light to win over our scrappy Tigers. The not-to-be-forgotten Tiger cubs won 14 games out of 19. These boys have shown much ability as basketball stars. They won the invitational second-team tourney in our gym. Alexandria drew the bye in the sectional at Anderson this year, and played I.apel in the third game lfriday night. Although they tried hard for the same outcome as their other tussle with Lapel. our Tigers were defeated, 45-38. ASKETB LL ET Sayre-Forward-In his linal year of basketball for A. H. S, Sayre distinguished himself as a lille bankboard man along with his speed and "Dead Eye" aetxuracy for the basket. Knotts-Forward-One of the most valuable men on the Tiger squad. He had natural ability as a bankhoard man and will be back for future victories next year. Little-Forward-A fast moving little forward who is an "Eagle Eye" on long shots. jerry got into enough games to show great promise for his senior year. Ryan-Guard-Speed, deception, and accuracy made Ryan one of the 'l'iger's big guns this year, His ability to control the ball will feature his playing in the next two years. Arnold-Guard-A small, speedy player, with an adept eye for hitting "longs", who will add much power to the team in the next two years. Rubrecht-Forward-Though he started the season with a broken wrist, lVilbur recuperated in time to be a valuable man on the team. His defensive strength will be missed by the Tiger team. He is a senior. Rayle-Center-A lanky sophomore, Rayle's 6' 4" were a great asset in "under the basket" work and at center he was rarely out-jumped. Howerton-Guard-A hard-driving, "nexer say die" player whose high scoring ability will be sorely missed by his graduation in the spring. XVith four years of varsity competition he is one of the "lightenest" Tigers A. H. has known. Not pictured: t Hand-Center-In his lirst year of basketball he showed defensixe ability and was valuable under the basket. He graduates this spring. Several boys are able to graduate from Alexandria High School this year through special arrangements of one kind or another. Harold Barnes and john Hughes are ex-servicemen who have enrolled in high school and are taking thc rc- quired work for graduation. jack Brenner and Charles Curtis are servicemen who received enough credits through Army regulations Lu graduate. jerry Pruden and jay Stelter, through outside work,are also graduating with us.
