Sometimes our rhythm was wrong, perhaps our notes, but the music continued and has come to successful harmony. Music has brought many hours of relaxation and brightened for us our years in AHS. We hope our songs will always head your list of pleasant memories. Q THANKS TO YOU, CARROLL COPELAND for the memories of our years in AHS. You gave us the music we longed for and encouraged us with the strong faith you had in us. Thanks too, for the memories of your ragtime music, broken batons, and open band room windows. Even these have helped to make this year well worth singing about and your sunny disposition has made you truly "a jolly good fellowf' WE ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE MADE THIS SPECTRUM FOR YOU - WE WORKED ON IT TWO SEMESTERS Sianding, left to right: Bob Benefiel, Helen LeRoy, John Reehling, Gene Swindell Jean Ann Hendryx, Charles Almquist. i Sealed: Jane Frye, Sue Carpenter, Shirlee Wells, Joan DeaKyne, Lou Owen, Lynn Russell, Judy Mobley.

JUNICRS F5 X it 'X Snphumnr-G5 Sooner or Later X ,A cmurs S i K' X Freshman K !! The juniors introduced the year by electing reserved but capable John Carver as presi- dent and Barbara Savage as vice president. Competent Vianna Wilson served as secre- tary and treasurer. , The juniors, because they are so independ- ent and because they felt they could earn money in other ways, decided to save Vianna ai lot of trouble and not have class dues. They made money by sponsoring a skating party and dances after games. Few students at AHS were left at Christmas time without cards to send because the juniors were always there, urging them to buy cards from them. December was spring when they blossomed out in green and white sweaters. They also got their class rings this year. They were directed very successfully by Sponsors Miss French, Miss Bagby, and Miss Hull.

They,re in senior high. f They've no time to squander on petty freshmen. They started out with a bang by electing go-getting Pat Donahue as president and jovial Mary Lee Johnston as vice-president. Philip Blake kept the minutes and Phyllis Hess took charge of the money. Unlike most sophomores, these became immediately acquainted with senior high, and some became very well acquainted with senior high girls. This was a money making year. With the help of Miss Yargar, Miss Allen, and Mr. Oberholtzer they sold popcorn at games, sponsored a skating party and a super magician show. They showed their originality by having the first hayride of the year. We are proud of these sophomores who fear nothing . . . not even the newness of senior high. i Fred Aldridge Mildred Allen Robert Ankrum Janet Arnold Keith ASl'1l3y Pete Auler Anne Baker Jeaneen Beeman Elmer Beeson Jean Bennie Margaret J.

They sup- posedly have very little thinking ability and even less poise. They are, we might say, 'green". Now, let's look at this year's freshman class, the seniors of 1950. Edwin Baker, Buddy to us, proves that freshmen do not possess these qualities- Upon Buddy has been bestowed the oflice of president. Patty Lewis, who disproves the theory that freshmen have no poise, serves as vice-president. Marilyn Jo Fuller is secretary of the class and Robert Imler takes his place as treasurer. This class went further to defend their true nature by selling magazine subscriptions and they did very well . . . so well that they had a party which was open to all freshmen. They danced and played games. Of course, the ones who sold the most subscriptions had one slight advantage over the rest . . . they paid no admission. Freshmen do not take all the credit for their success. Their spon- sors-Mrs. Slone, Mrs. Harlan, and Mr. Welborn -went a long way in proving that our seniors of 1950 are not the babies of AHS but are willing to accept responsibility and take their deserved place in AHS. f 4 ?' 45 i f- ,- 'N or 4' Fm' ., - Z it . -l Freda Auler Keith Auler David Auth Edwin Baker Hobert Ball Inita Beaty Doris Beilhartz Richard Benefie .Tack Blockson Mary Bogue jackie Bowers Barbara Brewer Paul Brewer Marilyn Brobst Robert Cleaver Shirell Collis Duane Cox Arlene Cummings Jerry Cummins Phyllis Cunningham Marvin Davis Phil Lea Davis Beverly A.

This organiza- tion, which seems at its peak now, has been kept busy giving concerts, marching at football games, and playing at basketball games- The twirlers play an important part at the games. This is the first year for some time that the band has entered the annual band contest. Some of its members also enteredi the solo and ensemble contest. Mr. Copeland has kept the band a democratic organization as much as possible. Officers elected by the band were Judy Mobley, librarian, Shirlee Wells, student directorg Jim Arnold, set-up manager, and Lou Owen, concert mistress.

CHOIR We "hear those angel voices calling" when our sixty-five voice choir sings. These people, who love to sing, have performed at concerts, minstrels, Crescendo Varieties -- actually in every musical performance of the year. Outstanding in this year's music was the Easter performances of Dubois "Seven Last Words of Christf' The Cantata was made doubly impressive by new robes, worn by the choir. Joan Girting and Lou Owen were librarians. Shirlee Wells and Anne Baker were accompanists for the fifth period choir and Rebecca Clark and Carolyn Huebner played for the fourth period group. The new spinet piano, bought this year, makes their playing especially enjoyable. E j GIRL'S TRIO That's not T. Dorsey you hear . . . It's the AHS Dance Band. It is made up of twelve students who are strictly solid- senders. They have played for dances, minstrels, Crescendo Varieties, and even for dinner music. Miss Bagby has started something new this year by supervising the girls' swing Q Urio. They stick -strictly to popular jive tunes and, with her as arranger and ac- companist, have acquired a fine reputation.

TIGER CLUB "Fight 'em, team, fight 'emf' The purpose of the Tiger Club is to help the team by backing them with yells and promoting good sportsmanship. We see the club at each game in its own section, cheering the Tigers on to victory. Although the Tiger Club is not an organization which makes a profit on its activities, it must have money to carry it through the year and to Hnance the banquet at the end of the year. Many girls in AHS were sporting large white bandanas which had the name of the school written in large letters. C- I. C. books were also sold. The Tiger Club originated the new sectional seating plan, which was first used this year. The work was successfully carried out under the leadership of President jean Ann Hendryx, Vice-President Gene Farquerg and Secretary-Treasurer Lynn Russell. The executive committee was composed of Joan Bennett, Wayne Morgan, and Joanne Tuerffs.

STUDENT COUNCIL "Clean ,em Out" was the slogan when Student Council members made posters to remind students to keep their lockers clean- One needed only to turn a corner in the hall or pass a waste basket to be confronted by one of these bright posters. Instead of looking at the clock in front of the assembly, students were distracted one day by a huge tiger skin. This was part of the display of a speaker from India who was presented by the Student Council. The council, with the help of Mr. Evans, also presented a musical program which fea- tured part of the dance band. Committees were appointed to communicate with all absentees, and to make scholarships available. The Student Council is composed of eight members, some chosen by students and some by the faculty. According to custom a senior always serves as president. Verle Wright held the position this year. Eddie Teague is vice-president. Ina Ellingwood was elected secretary, and the treasurer is Christine Johnston. Slamfiug, Ivfl lo rigbl: Patrick Donahue, Philip Young, jimmy Arnold, Charles Almquist. Sealed: Max Jones, E. R.

These sixty-six members of the Hi-Y come from each class in high school and with the help of Mr. Buck, have formed probably the merriest club in AHS. They began their year by electing Max Jones as president, John Carver as vice- president, Pat Donahue as secretary, and Charles Almquist as treasurer. Phil Young was Sergeant-at-arms, and Jim Arnold served as chaplain. They have had a year filled with activities. A supper followed formal initiation. fPerhaps the rough initiation last year was just too roughly They also had a semi-formal dance. y .ygThere was simply no excuse for a student's not having a pencil. Pencil machines were installed in both buildings by the Hi-Y. Incidentally, this was one of the methods of making money. The club also had dues. t S0 ends a year of fun, fun, and more fun for the Hi-Y of AHS. S1a1m'i11g, 'left fo rigbf: Joan Bennett, Vianna Wilson, Helen LeRoy, Orpha Hannah. Srafed: Jean Ann Hendryx, Roxanna Frazier, Barbara Evans. Y-TEENS There have been some changes made' this year- The all-girl organization of AHS is no longer called the Girl Reserves. The reason for this change, according to National Headquarters of Y. W. C. A., is that Y-Teens shows more of a relationship between this group and the Y. W. C. A. This seemed the year for speakers at Y-Teens. Two war brides, one: from England and one from Belgium, and a U. S. Army Hostess spoke before the group. Y-Teens pins, bracelets, and buttons were made available to the club. Those who led the girls through this year of changes are Jean Ann Hendryx, presidentg Barbara Evans, vice-presidentg Joan Bennett, sccretaryg and Vianna Wilson, treasurer. Miss Frazier was adviser of the group. Sfamfirlg, Ivff fo rigbl: Joan Prentice, Duane Knotts, Philip Young, James Judd. Sealed: Charlotte Chambers. Mariorie French, Madonna Heartbarger.

The organization also sent gift boxes to children in Europe and gifts to the Yanks. ' i ' ' Amid cheers and applause the high school band played at the Veterans' Hospital in Marion. The trip was financed by the Junior Red Cross. Tomlinson, Clarke, and Junior High scho-ols were permitted to carry on projects, and the Junior Red Cross paid for them. Marjorie French is Junior Red Cross supervisor and Joan Prentice is chairman of the council. The only other officer is Charlotte Chambers, who serves as secretary and treasurer.

Our football team was beaten the first game by a heavy and experi- enced Elwood eleven. The next two games were defeats, but the team made a much better showing when they defeated the Hartford City team. The Tigers were not beaten for three more games, including a tie with Portland, and victories over Noblesville and Tipton. In the last two games the boys were beaten by the overwhelming weight of the Peru Tigers, and were out-scored by the Elwood Panthers. In some of the games the Tigers may have been out-tackled, but they were never out-fought. The team next season will miss the seven seniors on the squad but will have fifteen lettermen returning. Boys who completed their football career this year are: Captain Bus Sizelove, Jerry Little, Verle Wright, Rolland Allen, Max Jones, Royce Beeson, and Dick Hughes. Other lettermen are: Etchison, Bob Montgomery, joe Songer, Robert Clear, Larry Clegg, John Carver, Bob Ankrum, Bill King, Phil Young, Faris Boston, Armitte Gosnell, Eugene Street, Hubert Patz, and Joe Golden.

Our Tigers started their season with a bang by trouncing the Gaston Bulldogs 72 to 32. After two hard fought defeats the Tigers whipped the Albion five 47 to 34. They suffered several straight defeats, but made good showings against such highly-rated teams as Elwood, Gas City, Huntington, and Tipton. In a thrilling overtime the team was back on victory road by out-pointing the Noblesville Millers 43 to 40, but they lost to Burris of Muncie. After leading most of the way in the second Elwood game, the Tigers were beaten out in the last few minutes 43 to 39. After winning three games in a row, the team was defeated in the final game at Wabash. In mid-season Head Coach Ronald Treesh resigned and school officials chose Don Dick, who has capably filled the position. In the sectional at Anderson, Alexandria drew Markleville, the team that led the county standings, and was eliminated by a slim margin, 43 to 42. Basketball prospects for next year are good, as only one player is lost by graduation. Cf course basketball fans will miss Jerry Little, redheaded guard. This 5 foot 9 inch senior was team captain, leading individual scorer and a very good defensive player. Returning lettermen expected to start next season are: Duane Knotts, K. Rayle, Jimmy Arnold, and Edwin Etchison, all juniors. Sophomore veterans are: Armitte Gosnell, Joe Golden, Harold Thompson, and Fred Aldridge.

The title page lists the usual editors. As adviser I'd like to add a last word. Usually a Spectrum represents the ideas of the editor, more or less modihed by suggestions from the staff. Though Bob Benefiel acted as editor during the last vital weeks, and did it well, others had shared the responsibilities usual to the job. Such is true of most of the other work. Illl be a long time forgetting by what difhcult process We decided on song titles for seniors-how often Sue shuf- fled the lay-out--how everyone loved the S of snaps fWhose idea was that anyhow?j -how patiently Gilbert mounted pictures, and John read proof--how Bob Mont- gomery, our lone junior, saved the day for the sports section---how often Janie got everyone's opinion about an idea, and joan offered to type-how jean Ann drew and redrew our picture language for teachers. I'l1 recall, too, how interrupted much of our work was by Tiger's Tale, essays, minstrels and vacations. Most of all I'11 recall a successful project in group action, on-e of my happy experiences- Y PRESS OF Scorr PRINTING COMPAN Muncie, Indiana - -- ' ' ' 'z - n ,,-.. M, ,,. , , R' KA
