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 ALWAYS FIGHTSX' Tlxirly-eight FRESHMAN FOOTBALL 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 with St. joseph of Elwood end in ties one on September 22 13-13 and one on the 29th of October 12-12. They also had a game on October 20 with Elwood end in a 6-6 tie. The freshmen made a good showing against a strong Tipton B team but lost 35-6.

Jack held down a for- ward post all season and always played his heart out for the Tigers. JOHN HARON . . . This jack-of-all trades played both forward and guard throughout the year and did a good job of it. He scored more points than any other player on the team. JAY RINGER . . .

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.

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.

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 A.H.S. Way. 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"! f"1'fly-.vim CHOIR "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, the County Choral Festival, Crescendo Varieties and the Easter Cantata.
