The singing has already begun, so join us in
our hit parade of 1947.
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'

Sooner or Later
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

Oh, they're big kids now . . . these sophomores. 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

"It's a Good Day"
Freshmen are portrayed as the babies of high school. 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.

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

"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
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.

"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.

"The more they get together," the merrier they are! 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
.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

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.

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.

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
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.
