rebuilding the football team for future years, The Tigers won two games, one
from Delphi 14-13, and one from Greenfield 19-13.
Several sophomores and juniors played regularly this year, and gained
experience that will be valuable in years to come. Prospects look good as
Coach Dick loses only five members from this year's team.
The Tigers, although the record might not show it, proved that "ALEX
Playing five games this season the Alex Freshmen tied three and lost
two. The team seemed unable to break the '4tie" jinx. They had two games

on the 29th of October 12-12. They also had a game on October 20 with

Though defeated continually, our varsity played fine ball through the
season of 20 games.
Called the 'tFang1ess Tigers" they were within sight of victory several
timesg once with the powerful Huntington Vikings and once with Noblesville.
Both were lost in the last seconds of play.
The Tigers participated in the tourney at Elwood on the 30th of
December. In a hard fought battle, Burris of Muncie defeated the Tigers
during the second game of the afternoon. In the first game of the evening the
Tigers were defeated by the Hartford City Airdales.
Let us say the Tigers were down but never out, for we are sure they
will spring back in the near future with a bigger, stronger team that will surpass
many of our rivals.

This year seemed to be a year of "firsts" for the Hi-Y. For the first
time in the history of the Alexandria Hi-Y, they have been host to a district
conference, held March 13. Twenty-two high schools from ten counties were
represented. Four different schools led discussion groups about race, religion,
the nation, and boy and girl relationships. Rev. Paul Boyer from the Christian
Church, led the boys in a song fest. An evening banquet was served with
Rev. Edgar Williams of the Church of God as speaker. A mixer dance was
held at the Kanteen in which Y-Teen members participated.
The first constitution of the local Hi-Y was drawn up this year. Pro-
visions for initiation were included.
April Fool's day was celebrated by holding a square dance. Mr. J. B.
Duff, state Hi-Y secretary and an authority on square dancing, was the caller.
Hi-Y also sponsored a yo-yo contest last fall as well as a "Guess the
winner of the Sectional" contest in February.

Busy as any band can be. From the first strains of
a football march till the last notes of the commencement
recessional, Mr. Copeland and the band are working.
Out went the field nights, on went the cap lights, and
we saw the letters U S A. That was only one of the maneu-
vers performed during football halves.
"Hucklebuck" and "Ain't She Sweet" were just two
of the popular band numbers played at basketball games.
K'Fight On" acquired more pep and spirit played in our own
Popular, classical. marches, and even be-bop numbers
don't stump our band, They play them all at just the right
time. We really mean it when we say "There's Something
About a Home Town Band That Makes You Want to Shout"!
"Let's harmonize" could well be the theme song of
the A.H.S. choir. The harmonizing started early last fall
when several members took part in the State Choral Festival
at Indianapolis. Their first puhlic performance of the year
at the Fall Concert, when Miss Francis Fowl. a student
teacher, directed the choir.
Let's have some fun! After caroling, the choir held a
Christmas party in the choir room. They played games,
drank hot cocoa, and naturally, harmonized.
Another Copeland! Director for the group during the
Winter Concert was Miss Phyllis Copeland. And so during
the year, the choir performed at the Christmas program,
