In the fall of 1931, sixty-five frightened
little first graders entered the huge halls
of Anderson Township School. This
large school not only included the first
eight grades but also four years of
The first grade of 1931-32 was divided
into two sections as it was too large for
one person's supervision. The two
groups were under the supervision of
Miss Helen Davis and Miss Helen
Wingerberger. After struggling with
crayons, paper lanterns and the like,
we were finally promoted to the
Our second grade advisers were Miss
Katherine Etzel and Miss Virginia Long.
This year we had a toy band. This was
under the direction of Miss Stienle.
After having two years at Anderson we
were now becoming accustomed to the
things that were required of a student.
Our third grade advisers were Miss
Gertrude Carlson and Miss Mary Laugh.
The next year, along with our reading,
writing and arithmetic, were added
geography and English. This was quite
a step in our young lives. Under the
instruction of Miss Nancy Foster and
Miss Elsie Harmon we completed this
Now we made a really big step in
our school life. We were to be on the
second floor. That made us feel rather
superior. Our home room teachers were
Miss Eleanor Powers and Mrs. Besse
Ayer. Instead of having one teacher for
all our subjects, we now had a different
one for each subject. Our sixth grade
advisers were Miss Marjorie Sturm and
Mrs. Georgia Ayer. After a year we
were then promoted to junior high. Our
seventh grade advisers were Miss
Nancy Foster and Mr. Harold Obee.
During this year we had a junior high
Our eighth grade advisers were Miss
Gertrude Addicott and Mr. M. I. Ellis.
They were not exactly strangers to us
because in the previous year they had
taught us English and science. Our
junior high boys had the champion
basketball team in the -county. We
sponsored a show at the Elstun Theater
called "The Hoosier School Boy." We
now had more money than we knew
how to spend so we decided to take an
educational tour of Cincinnati. We were
the first class to take such a tour. Now
the biggest day of our lives arrived:
graduation from grade school into high
school. This took place in the spring
Our freshman advisers were Miss
Ruth Perin and Mr. David Drake. The
sophomores gave us a delightful fresh-
man party and initiation. The next year
we were sophomores and now upper-
classmen. Our advisers were Miss Vera
Nash and Mr. Gordon Duvall. This year
we gave the freshmen a party. As
juniors we had for our advisers Mrs.
Mary Struke and Mr. Charles Brown.
We gave a successful class play, "Miss
Collegiate." We gave the seniors, in the
way of farewell, a prom.
This account brings us up to the
present. Now we are seniors and are
completing our education at Anderson.
Of the group of sixty-five first graders
we now have fifteen students who have
been here for the entire twelve years.
They are: L. Meier, S. Rusk, D. Shell-
abarger, I. Truitt, I. Owens, I. Bruce,
L. Nielsen, B. Thomton, W. Iohnson,
W. Maxstadt, R. Burns, I. Dumont,
H. Wittmeyer, D. Bartels and K. Merten.
