" I speak what I sincerely believe to be the truth " seems to be his life motto. Recognized throughout the school by his complete knowledge of all his pupils and much good humor added to all his classes, he is saluted by us, the Class of 1937, and to him we pay our tribute, the dedication of this annual.

Practically all of these young people are either in col- lege or are regularly employed, most of them in An- gola or vicinity. When we add to these 417 the hun- dreds of young people previously graduated since 1877 we see what a large proportion of the work of the community is being done by alumni of our high school. Much of this work is prosaic, but none the less useful and worthy of respect. Not only do our alumni fur- nish the backbone of the community but many have gone out into Lu ' ger fields of en- deavor than could be furnished by the home community, and of these also we are proud. Following are a few who have won special distinction: Willis Uhl, 1902 — Dean of the School of Education, University of Washington, Seattle. Author of educational books. Charles Honess, 1908 — Member of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Scien- tist and writer. Florence Parsell, 1909 — Teacher of Art in Grand Rapids Public Schools. Artist and illustrator. Arthur Honess, 1909 — Scientist. Decorated by the French Academy of Science for research in crystallization. Lynn Elston, 1910 — Surgeon, chief of statf, Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne, Ind. David Palfreyman, 1912. Moving picture executive. New York City. Assistant to ' Will Hayes. Gaylord Metzgar, 1916 — Executive General Motors, Body Department. Henry Waller, 1926 — Professor at George Washington University, awarded Ph.D. on original research in biology. — JOHN L. ESTRICH. Mr. Estrich always is willing to take his work with a smile. Max Tucker is having real pleasure getting a few tips on today ' s physics lesson. Page six ecrion? on zua ents " tc CLAVTOX H. 1 l.Lk)TT Priuc lhil As time marches on it is only natural for people to look for changes in habits, attitudes, and ideals of high school pupils. But is there much actual change? An optimistic defender of modern youth says, " Well, our pupils are not angels but they don ' t tear things upside down now with school-color lights as we used to do. " Then the skeptic counters with the annoying " Oh, no? " and relates, " Why just the other day I saw — " and then adds, " And didn ' t you hear about that — ? " And so the argument continues, apparently never won. Each side can offer convincing proof. Perhaps high school pupils can be compared to a violin string. The whole string vibrates — extreme in each direction, and is easily visible. This is like the " best " and " worst " pupils — quickly observed by the public but relatively few in number. The string also has numerous, smaller, overtone vibrations which give quality to the sound. These represent the great mass of " ordinar) ' " pupils, balancing the ex- treme types and giving the school quality and stability. The vibrations of a string are controlled by the violinist and the sounding board. Teachers are violinists and the community is the sounding board. The tone quality of pupils changes as the others change. The responsibility is a challenge to all. —CLAYTON H. ELLIOTT. Mr. Elliott might be said to live a life of service — never refusing to help students. Dean Rose is " it " right now, probably getting some agricul- ture instruction.

KOLB Students of Angola High School and citizens of the community appreciate the advice and service the members of the board of education have given the Angola Schools this year and throughout previous years. Gary E. Govell, president, is completing his eleventh year with this organization. He was formerly a teacher. Ray Alwood, secretary, is serving his second year. He was appointed to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of G. E. Beatty. Edward C. Kolb, treasurer, is serving his seventh year.

Max Tucker 9?in wi 3 iU i he a99 o 937 The great dramatic achievement now showing at the Angola High Theater, depicting the scholastic career of the present senior class is " Passing with the Class of 193 7. " The main stars of the cast were fourteen timid boys and girls, out of this group of forty-four seniors, who entered the first grade in Angola in 1925. They were: Jack Ritter, James Watkins, Ray Becker, Bill Butz, Gale Carver, Louise Helme, Bob Kolb, Harley Mann, Jack Shumann, OreLlana Ewers, Josephine White, Leland Nedele, Robert London, and Charles Purdy. The first act of this play represents the " Freshman Year, " which was guided by our faithful companion and leader, Mr. Dygert. This year was the beginning of the Studying — well!!!; " Why, Glenn — six of ' em; Bob and John; Editor Kiess; Lawrence Tibbett .second; Why Mina!; Dee. Handsome t ' iiinnann ; Luella; Class of ' 37 in their advancement in secondary school learning. The one thing most outstanding in the memories of the class concerning this year is the freshman initiation sponsored by the sophomores. The second act takes us to still higher learning, " The Sophomore Year. " This year our activities were directed by our capable leader, Miss Reed. Though we were staid and steady since we had passed through the freshman notch, the class still needed great assistance which was given by our sponsor. This year we retaliated for past indigni- ties by giving the freshman class a good initiation. At the end of this year we had obtained a steadier grip on the activities of the high school. For act three the scene is laid in the home room 312 and the " Junior Class. " This year the class had a different sponsor, whom we considered very capable and pleasing, Miss Young. The greatest achievement of the year was the preparation of the junior- senior banquet in honor of the seniors. Since we were considered upper classmen we led the lower classes and told them " what ' s what. " The final and most important act is the year as " Dignified Seniors. " Plus the fourteen boys and girls that spent all twelve years here, there are thirty more to make the total number forty-four, who will end these four wonderful years at Angola High School. Mr. Druckamiller served as director for the last act. Our one great achievement this year was the presentation of the senior class play called " What Happened to Jones. " Then came the junior-senior banquet which was given in our honor this year. With these activities over and .ill our courses completed, the class is ready for the final day or " finale " whch has now arrived — commencement. — ROBERT HALL.

All who live find adventure profitable if they make good use of it, constructive if they choose wisely, futile if they make it so, but always interesting. We come upon obstacles which we cannot always overcome. There is no assurance that what we do will lead to a certain end, but one may plan and enter into this great adventure with hope. Vision is the first essential of this great planning. If we are to get any place in the world, we must not wander around spending our time at other things. We must look ahead to what we want and make our goal high enough that when we reach it we are on the top. No one was ever a success in life without some sort of vision of what he wanted to do or what he wanted to be. But having vision, we must also have faith in ourselves. We must be sure that what we are doing is worth doing, and that wc can do it well. Vision and faith are not all that are needed, for we must have action in order to progress. A quality necessary to action is courage. We must have the courage to keep going even though our vision fails or our faith is shattered. Having all these qualities is not enough; we must combine them into one force, energy. Energy is human horse power; it is not a virtue in itself, but the application of virtues. We see our goal; we believe that we can reach it; we have the courage to go ahead in the face of ditficulties — the outcome of all these is our going ahead to attain our goal. The greatest adventure in life is, of course, living. Many of us, who are now fin- ishing our school careers, wish that we might be able to have a second chance. Many of us would do better a second time. We think we should do a great deed or find time to do things which we had plenty of time to do but never did do. A number of things that are not pleasant happen in life; we have done things which we are ashamed of; we are guilty of things unworthy of us; we are the victims of unfortunate circumstances. If we had a second chance all this would be changed, but there have been so many pleasant times, so many nice people, so many satisfactions. These are the things we should like to live over again, not the chance to do better a second time. The threads of opportunities lie broken along the path of our school days. But our joy comes, not in regretting what might have been, but in making the most of what yet may be. During the past twelve years our teachers have guided us and helped us to pick up these opportunities. To them we are grateful. But now we are beyond the jurisdiction of our teachers; we are faced with the task of making our own decisions and finding our opportunities. We regret that we arc at the end of one great adventure, our school days; but we rejoice that we are at the beginning of another great adventure, finding our place in the world. A new world lies before us with numerous opportunities. We must have the vision to see our advancement, faith in our own ability, and courage to carry out our plans. These will make our own success in life — a great adventure. — Mary Catherine Lippincott. Pa e tticnly OPENING DOORS In the past school years we have had placed before us many opportunities which may be interpreted as so many doors; these may be opened in many different fields of work. The teachers and instructors who have supervised our learning may be called " locksmiths. " At first these doors were simple and made up the foundation of the future we are now facing. But as time went on the doors became more complex and elaborate. Now the doors which lie before us are for our own choosing and of course, we must choose the ones through which we are best suited to enter. The first door we must open is the one of opportunity. The head of a world- famous university once said, " The greatest opportunity that can ever come to you will be no greater than your preparation for it. " This statement sums up in a few words what we have been working for all these year s. After opportunity comes another door; namely, the door to a vocation. It opens into a vast room of many professions. The decision of which vocation to choose is a hard one to make. Probably most of us have not decided definitely about this door yet. Another door that has been partially opened for us by the " locksmiths " is the door to religion. Religion is of major importance not only to us but to everyone. This can- not be stressed enough for sooner or later we must all recognize it. All during our school life we have associated with religious principles and we must carrv them through all time to come. Closely related to religion is the door of service. In the various organizations in which we have participated we have had the ideal of service held up before us. We cannot evade the fact that this constitutes a primary factor in our adaptation to the future. Of course there have been times when we have forgotten the idea of service but to be successful we must pass through this portal. Along with the others there is a door to be opened called health. We have always been taught the rules of good health and in order to reach our goal those rules must be followed. In the athletic prograna of the school we have practiced good health and clean living. To attain the highest achievement we must always seek good, clean living. Another door we shall meet is that of leisure time. When I mention leisure time, this question arises: Are we going to spend this leisure time in a profitable way or are we going to idle it away? We were instructed to use it to the best of our advantage. In the Hi-Y and Girl Reserve clubs opportunity was given to us to use our leisure time in a profitable way. I feel that we shall carry this habit out into life. Challenging us to open it is a door, which in my mind, is considered very im- portant. It is the door that opens into the room of social standing, in other words our associations in society. We aspire to associate with the more responsible people in the community. Shall we always feel this way? Shall we combine this door with others and develop a high Christian character? Our characters will depend upon the " Open- ing of the Doors of Life. " I speak for the whole class when I say that we desire to open all of these and enter into the successful phases of life. I feel sure we shall attain the goals which have been placed before us by the " locksmiths " (the teachers) in the school, ' e shall try, and I am sure we shall find a place in the world to render the service for which we have been prepared. Thus shall we show our appreciation to the community and to the teachers by whom we have been guided. In conclusion I want to express our happy and sincere welcome to you and to the life we are about to face. — Max Tucker. Pii; i ' uciit -oiic trssT " ' rmmanmimmssm ' MWW " ■PBXH! I was sitting in social science class the other day trying to stir up some interest in Congress and the affairs of the government. Finally I gave up and started talking to Bob London about the plans of the seniors after graduation. We completely forgot our surroundings and imagined the time twenty years from now. 1 asked, " Bob, how are you getting along in the business of calling cattle on Mark Grain ' s ranch? I always knew you would commercialize on your voice. " He said he was paid very well because everyone was in the market for a cowhand with a loud voice. " And say, " he said, " Julia is writing an advice to the lovelorn column in the Chicago Tribune. She conhded to me that she had just received a letter from Dee Reese asking for some advice. He is in love with two women besides his wife and they are both suing him for breach of promise. James Crankshaw is handling the case for him so he shouldn ' t be so worried. Malinda Pendill is his private secretary. Jimmy has just finished writing ' A Thousand Ways to Spend Your Leisure Time ' . " I told Bob I had seen James Watkins ' Rhythm Band the preceding week in New York and he was really a sensation. Louise Helme is the featured dancer and the fans say she is " tops. " " I hear Donald Elliott is a famous psychologist now. He is at present trying to discover what makes his children so mean, " I went on. Bob volunteered, " Jack Shumann has taken up aviation and until yesterday when he knocked Bill Butz off the statue on the mound in Angola, Bill was the champion pole sitter. " Harley Mann is an undertaker but says that business is slow since Junior Sheets, chief of police, started a campaign against fast driving. " I asked if he knew what had happened to Gale Carver. He answered, " She has an art studio with Mary Wells and Garoll Zimmerman. They are trying to make a new color for the labels on Bob Kolb ' s foot medicine. He is a famous specialist, you know, and wants something different. Kolb always was a little different, remember? Ruth Kiess is assisting as his trained nurse. " Bob said he wondered if Robert Hall were still interested in golf. I told him that he was always on a golf course. He and John Stage are running a combination golf and bowling club. It makes a good game because it doesn ' t take so long to play it when you can pick up the ball. Jack Ritter is their personal adviser and coaches Big Ten games as a sideline. " I wonder what ' s happened to our own dear Angola High School, " I continued. " Eddie Griffith was so fond of it that he decided to take it up as his life ' s work. He is now principal of A. H. S. and is following in Mr. Elliott ' s footsteps, " Bob told me. " Mary Catherine Lippincott is considered the best dancing teacher in the world. It is said that until recently she could make anyone go into the dance. She is afraid that Ray Becker and Ralph Thobe will be the first black marks on her record. " Labor conditions certainly are getting bad. I don ' t know what will happen if Glen Huntington doesn ' t stop conducting sit down strikes. It seems that he and Leland Nedcle could come to no agreement. Leland just won ' t pay his mechanic, Russell Rit ter, enough for putting his Super-Charged Nedeles together. You can ' t blame Russell ' s men for wanting better wages, though. " Ilo Blosser is said to have a bad case of writer ' s cramp since she has gained such a reputation as a journalist. Jyle Millikan is her private physician and prescribes a few trips abroad. " " By the way — did Violet Butz ever become the beauty operator she spoke so much about? " I asked. " Well, yes and no, " he said. " She has dyed her hair bright red and is one of those operators who says, ' Number please, ' whenever someone lifts the receiver of a telephone. Violet Eisenhour is selling a new beauty creation which is guaranteed to remove wrinkles. Paf e twenty-two " Margaret Morse and OreLlana Ewers are still trying to decide upon a vocation. We should have been taught that in high school, don ' t you think? " he concluded. " Have you seen any good shows lately, " I queried. " Yes, " he said. " Roleyn Saul is a hit in ' Golddiggers of 195 7, ' even if she is get- ting slightly grey around the temples. Max Tucker has taken Robert Taylor ' s place — -the girls just won ' t let him alone. They say Marcella Fanning came to America just to play chop sticks in the new show. She is a concert pianist at heart. " Charles Jacobs is with Ringling Brothers Circus and has a company of trained fleas. He reports that they have more intelligence than most humans. Gertie Abram- son, Luella Parker, and Josephine White have surpassed all former trapese artists. " " Charles Purdy is hunting wild game in Africa, " I told him. " He always did go in for that sort of thing. He has hired the great author, Wava Rose Williams, to write his animal stories for the kiddies ' hour when he returns. " Bob said, " Remember how you used to kick up your heels and talk about being a ballet dancer? " " Yes, I remember, " I answered, " and I haven ' t given up yet. Maybe when I get a little older! I ' m only thirty-seven, you know, and life begins at forty. " " Why-ah. Well, you see — uh, I ' m sorry, Mr. Handy, er — a — I didn ' t hear the question. " ELEANORE BAKSTAD. WELL ! WELL ! WELL !

" In 1901 it made its first appearance in the form of a booklet published by the seniors at the end of the year. In 190 5 the name " Spectator " was given this booklet. Looking closely at the pictures, we notice ribbons in the girls ' hair and mustaches worn by the boys. During the World War the annual was smaller. In 1919, the year in which most of us 1937 seniors were born, the name " Key " made its debut, and is still in effect. Each senior " strutted his stuff " on one whole page. The main editorial of this issue ended thus: " Let everyone boost for the erection of a new school building. " The new building came in 1933. Finally, skipping over to the year 1933, we find the annual and periodical were combined in magazine form. In 1934 a change was made back to the other style. The annual of 193 5 was marked by its artistic touch and the one of 1936, by the clever headings on the various pages. Looking over the parade of year books, we do not find two annuals with the same layout — new features are added; others dropped. May all issues in the future be as entertaining as the former ones, put out by staffs lacking modern equipment. This year ' s staff is as follows: Editor in chief, Ruth Kiess; assistant editor, Mary C. Lippincott; business manager. Max Tucker; assistant business manager, Bob London; art editor. Gale Carver; assistant art editor, Caroll Zimmerman; snapshot editor, Julia Jane Jackson; assistant snapshot editor, Eleanore Bakstad; boys ' athletics, James Watkins; girls athletics, Violet Elsenhour; music, Wava Rose Williams; calendar, IIo Blosser; alumni. Jack Shumann; dramatics, James Crankshaw; organizations, OreLlana Ewers; jokes, Bob Kolb; classes, Roleyn Saul. Pa e thirty-six one? " b oners ' In 193 5 when Angola High School became a member of the North Central Asso- ciation of High Schools and Colleges, the local chapter of the National Honor Society was formed. The highest honor that can be awarded to a pupil in Angola High School is mem- bership in this society. This honor is granted because of a pupil ' s high rating in scholarship, service, leadership, and character. The candidates must be in the upper third of their class and their school must be a member of the North Central Associa- tion of High Schools and Colleges. The number to be chosen is determined on a percentage basis, fifteen per cent of the senior class being eligible, and the members are chosen by the entire high school faculty. Because of the fact that a student must be outstanding in more than one characteristic, election to this society is considered a very great honor. This year there were seven pupils from the graduating class of 193 7 who were awarded membership in this society. Those chosen were: James Crankshaw, Donald Elliott, OreLlana Ewers, Ruth Kiess, Mary Catherine Lippincott, Max Tucker, and Wava Rose Williams. In 193 5 six students were selected for this honor. They were: Thomas Crain, Herschel Eberhard, president; Janet Elliott, secretary; Robert James, Gerald King, vice- president; and Willis Roberts. Four are attending college this year. In 193 6 eight students were selected for this honor. They were; Max Kemmerling, president; Wilbur Simpson, vice-president; Mary Kathrj ' n Orwig, secretary; Aileen Casebeer, John Duckwall, Carolyn Hull, Marvin Green and Margaret Pence. Three ai ' e attending college this year. This third chapter was organized on March 3 0. The officers are: Max Tucker, president; Mary Catherine Lippincott, secretary; and C. H. Elliott, member of the faculty council, treasurer. T ▼ T Top row: James Crankshaw, Donald Elliott. Max Tucker. Front row: Wava Rose Williams, OreLlana Ewers, ilary Catherine Lippincott, Kuth Kiess. Page thirty-scien ;;»£ »?; ;s Five years ago Angola High School felt there was a definite need for student participation in school government as did other progressive high schools. Because of this need Mr. Elliott presented to the student body of the high school a plan for student government, which provided for the student council. The aims of this organization are to promote, in every way possible, the best interest in the high school; to regulate certain matters of student conduct which do not fall under the jurisdiction of the faculty: and to maintain the ideals of the high school by presenting a means for the students to express their opinions concerning the management of student affairs. During the last year the student council has accomplished many things beneficial to the school. They are as follows: Selection of cheer leaders, planning of part of chapel programs, urging more supervised study, taking charge of the information desk, part management of patrol court, and providing a means by which the student body could have a part in the school government. The constitution requires that the council be made up of two representatives, one girl and one boy, from each home room. The members according to the classes are as follows: Seniors — Roleyn Saul and Robert London; juniors — Mary Booth, James McNeal, Stephen Ransburg, and Lana Zimmerman; sophomores — Robert Craig, CaUsta Creel, Thomas Hansclman, and Virginia Care; freshmen — Betty Keckler, Norma Hull, Roscoe Nedele, and Robert Crain; junior high school — Kimsey Dole, Daryl Wilson, Annette Morse, Corrine Saul, John Sanders, and Phyllis Care. The officers for this year were: President Robert London; vice-president, Roleyn Saul; secretaries, Stephen Ransburg and Calista Creel; reporter, Roscoe Nedele.

The Angola debate team this year set the best record of all preceding teams in the history of debating in Angola High. By defeating Warsaw and losing to Elkhart, who went to the state, the debate team placed second in the northeastern district confer- ence. Before being able to enter the district, they won the county contest held at Angola, the first county tourney won b) ' Angola in three years. The subject for debate this year was, Resolved: That all electric utilities should be governmentally owned and operated. The members of the varsity team this year were Beth Brown, junior, and Robert Craig, sophomore, affirmative; and Donald Elliott and James Crankshaw, both seniors, negative. Other members of the club who partici- pated in non-decision debates were. Burton Kolb, Ruth Kiess, Gale Carver, David Hall, Mack Hosack, Marguerite Baker, Richard Zeigler, and Jim Zuber. The discussion work this year was based on the same subject as debate. James Crankshaw represented Steuben County in the district meet at Fort Wayne, April 1, taking the negative view of the topic. In order to make possible the trips taken by the debate club, a play, " The Blunder- ing Herd, " was given October 19. The three-act play was a side-splitting comedy and proved to be the best ever presented by the debate class. Mack Hosack led the cast as Walrus, a real western cowboy. Others in the cast were Don Elliott as Pappy; James Crankshaw, Timothy Tynan; Bob London, Zip; James Watkins, Gordon Rogers; Richard Zeigler, Shoo-Hi; Gale Carver, Peggy Houston: Ruth Kiess, Ruth Bell; Jane Buck, Miss Herring; Marguerite Baker and W ' ava Rose Williams, Sylvia and Mildred. Another production of the debate class was the one-act Christmas play, " A Sign Unto You. " Those having roles were James Crankshaw, Beth Brown, Ruth Kiess, Gale Carver, and Robert Craig. During the entire year splendid co-operation and guidance was given by Mr. Handy in both debate and dramatic work.

One of the first meetings of the year was a weiner and marsh- mallow roast at Fox Lake. Thirty girls enjoyed the organization at the formal initiation on October 12, and they have taken active part in the work during the year. The outstanding topic this year in the Girl Reserve meetings has been the study of " Vocations. " Later topics studied were " Youth and World Peace " and " Hobbies. " Outside speakers were Mrs. Oreon Keeslar, Ed Willis, the Reverend John Humfreys, Professor Hoke, Mr. Certain, and Miss Rapp. The district conference was held here this year on October 18. Girls from Garrett, Butler, Kendallville, Waterloo, and Salem Center attended, m aking about two hundred in all. The theme, " What ' s New, " formed an interesting program. The stage setting featured various topics for study such as hobbies, music, and fashions. Centerpieces for the luncheon tables were little ships — half cocoanut shells painted black with white sails. The luncheon was held at the Methodist Church. Ilo Blosser gave the talk on " Music " as our part of the forenoon program. Miss Elaine Estrich was the afternoon guest speaker. Wava Rose ' illiams was conference president. Members of the club attended a party given in their honor by the Girl Reserves of Salem Center in December. Games were provided and delicious refreshments served. One of the most enjoyable events of the year was the Girl Reserve - Hi-Y hop which was held in the Armory February 3. The members and advisers of both clubs and the faculty of the high school were present. The annual Pa-Ma-Me Banquet was held at the Angola Christian Church April 20. The circus theme was carried out in decorations and program. Judge Carlin was the guest speaker. The officers and cabinet for 1936-37 were: President, Gale Carver; vice-president. Wave Rose Williams; secretary ' , Ruth Kiess; treasurer, Ilo Blosser; finance, Louise Helme; social, Roleyn Saul; service, OreLlana Ewers and program, Julia Jane Jackson.

Pa)(e forty BsiiaiasLsaBHBtBiiUiiiiiUs SB gy The Hi-Y Club this year emphasized more than ever the three-fold jf purpose of the organization, to develop the physical, mental, and spiritual Mr sides of life. The programs during the year were arranged to fit in with these aims. In following the mental side of life there were several vocations carefully presented by men capable in their fields. There were also some interesting and worth while dis- cussions on such items as alcohol and tobacco. To stress the phsysical side several gym nights were arranged for the boys. The spiritual side was developed by a prayer in unison and the reading of the Bible at the meetings. Mr. Handy aided the club by giving the meaning of the scripture reading. The discussions were entered into by all members and helped to give the boys training in leadership. At the annual Halloween festival the club gave a very interesting minstrel show in the auditorium. The boys participating were: Stephen Ransburg, James Watkins, John Stage, Dee Reese, James Crankshaw, X ' endell Aldrich, Lyle Kiser, Don Weaver, Harley Mann, Bill Butz, Darl Johns, Robert Devine, Bob London, Jack Ritter, Robert Hall, Max Spangle, Mark Aldrich, James McNeal, Jack Shumann, and Ray Becker. Mr. Trumbull directed the minstrel. The second outstanding event of the year was the armual father and son banquet held at the College Inn. Dale Cole took the honors for shooting the most rabbits. The speaker for the banquet was Charles E. Shank. The boys entertained their mothers also at a banquet at the College Inn. The three sides of the Hi-Y trangle were described for the mothers by Donald Elliott, Wen- dell Aldrich, and James Crankshaw. The programs were very effectively made out by semesters ahead of time by the inner-circle committee. This was composed of the officers of the club and one member from each class. The officers this year were: President, James Crankshaw; vice-presi- dent, Max Tucker; secretary and treasurer, Wendell Aldrich. The members from the classes were: Sophomore, LaMoyne Saul; junior, Darl Johns; senior, Leland Nedele. Guidance and the sponsoring of the club were vested in Mr. Handy. Top row: Jlr. Handy.

The Angola High School orchestra, maintaining the success it has had for the past few years, went to the state contest at Elkhart last year and won in first division, thus becoming eligible for the 195 7 National contest which was held in Columbus, Ohio, May 13, 14, and 15. This year we have a new director, George W. Trumbull, from Port Washmgton, Wisconsin, who has very successfully carried on the work of the music department. The required contest piece for this year was Symphony Miniature, No. 2 by John- son. Other favorites were Gypsy Trail Overture by Fischel and Selections from Mika- do by Sullivan. A Thanksgiving concert was given November 24 and a Sunday concert was pre- sented February 21. Several of our members played for the program of the North- eastern Indiana Teachers ' Association last fall. Our orchestra has forty-five members. The officers are: President, James H. Wat- kins; secretan, ' , Julia Jane Jackson; student manager, Mary C. Lippincott; and librarian, Ray Becker. It will be remembered that our orchestral success was launched by Mr. Oakland in 1931-32 when we were victorious in the district contest held at North Side of Fort Wayne. The following year the orchestra went successfully through the district con- test at Columbia City, the state contest at LaPorte and entered the national contest at Elmhurst, Illinois, where we were given the title of the National Champion Class C high school orchestra. In 1934 we victoriously emerged from the district contest at Huntington and the state contest at Crawfordsville, but because of the distance we were unable to enter the national competition. However, in 193 5 the orchestra march- ed on to victory in the district competition held at Goshen, the state contest at Evans- ville, and the national contest at Madison, Wisconsin. Last year the orchestra under the direction of Mr. Lekvold had success in the district and state competition at Peru and Elkhart respectively. Page forty-luo ito ufical M emone?

The com- MUSIC MEMENTOS The Angola High School band first entered contest work in 19.) 4, under the direction of Mr. Oakland. In that year the organization was successful in the district contest and won state honors at Crawfordsville. The following year it again placed in first division in the district contest at Goshen and also the state contest held at Evansville. Last year, under the direction of Mr. Lekvold, the district contest at Peru and the state contest at Elkhart were won and the band was recommended for the national contest but was unable to make the trip. This year the band maintained its enviable record district contest at Columbia City and again the state ments of the judges at the state contest were: " Good tone quality. " " Good intonation. " " Clean cut per- formance. " The membership of the band numbered thirty- three. Ray Becker was the president of the organi- zation; Jack Shumann, vice-president; Robert Hall, secretary; Ruth Kiess, librarian; and Burton Kolb, student manager. Jack Shumann was the drum major. The required contest piece was Southern Over- ture, and the selected numbers were Prelude from Suite Ancienne by Hadley and Penora Overture by Holmes. The band played at every home basketball game and led the pep session. A joint orchestra and band concert was presented April 21. The inembers made a fine showing in their uni- forms which consist of purple capes lined with gold, purple and gold over-seas caps with the high school emblem on the side, purple sweaters, and white slacks. The colors of the drum major ' s uniform are just the reverse of those of the other uniforms. Pa°e forty-three -y..

It has sixty-one members, who were presented in concerts on December 22 and April 21, and who also appeared on the alumni program. Several of the chorus selections are " Hallelujah Chorus, " " Speedwell, " and " Hark ' Tis the Signal. " THE STRING QUARTET The String Quartet was first organized in 1933. This group has been very active this year, playing for concerts, vespers, banquets, and Parent-Teachers Association. Its membership consists of: First violin, Alvena Certain; second violin, Ruth Kiess; viola, Marsella Shank; and cello, Mary Jane Damlos. POINT SYSTEM Two years ago a point system whereby orchestra and band members might earn awards was inaugurated in the music department. Points were given for various performances and duties such as participating in contests, playing at public functions, taking private lessons, doing practice work, and playing in church orchestras. A system of demerits for tardiness and unexcused absences was installed and has been very effective in helping to keep discipline. At the close of the year, if a student ' s total number of points minus the demerits is 800 or more, he is given a purple and white letter. If he is a member of both organ- izations and has earned 1000 or more points, he is given a " double letter, " purple and gold, to sho w active service in both. At the end of the year a prize is given to the person earning the greatest number of points, and also to the senior who has rendered the greatest service to the music department, determmed at the discretion of the director. lI ' Ht. ilar - Koutli.

The Junior Homemakers Club, a member of the state organization, was formed in A. H. S. in November, 1936. Miss Mary Ruth Rapp was the instigator of the club in the high school and its adviser until the coming of Miss Janalyce Rouls. The purpose of the club is to secure higher ideals for home vocations and to promote friendliness. The club ' s colors are black and white. The work is guided by a written constitution. The meetings are held every two weeks. The pledge is as follows: " I pledge not to speak erroneously of another member of our club, to be loyal to the club, to help other members and to conduct myself so as to be a credit to the club and to the school. " The motto is " We Live for Each Other. " The club had several different kinds of programs. At one meeting Mr. Willis was the speaker, his topic being " Jobs for Girls. " The club members had a chili dinner and two pot-luck dinners, one being a farewell dinner for Miss Rapp. At the Christmas meeting a gift exchange was held. A scandal sheet is read at each meeting. One of the most pleasing social events of the season was the George Washington birthday party given to entertain the F. F. A. boys and their adviser, Mr. Elliott. The decorations were red, white, and blue. Different games were played and refreshments were served. Other parties of the season were an April fool party, a mother and daughter banquet, and a picnic. The officers were: President, Virginia Care; vice-president, Violet Eisenhour; sec- retary, Mary Wells; treasurer, Pauline Frazier; and reporter, Margaret Carr.

The sparkling comedy, " " hat Happened to Jones, " by George Broadhurst, was produced by the senior class of 1937. and was based on the adventures of Jones who traveled tor a hymn book company. As he seems the expected bishop in Professor Goodly ' s home, the professor ' s wife falls for his line till the climax while his daughters, Minerva and Marjorie, cause some trying moments for the bewildered Jones. Richard Heatherly is Marjorie ' s lover. A rare bit of humor develops when Alvina Starlight makes love to the wrong Bishop of BaUarat. Holder, the policeman, makes his pres- ence very plain as does also the ser -ant girl. Helma. The professor ' s ward, Ciss) ' , finally catches up with Jones, ' " illiam Bigbee amuses the audience with his Indian pranks, but the keeper of the sanatorium, Henr ' Fuller, finally catches him.

COMEDY IX THE MAKING Pj f forty-eight ATWLCTlCS Page fort) -nine Emery Druckamiller, our coach, who for the past nine years has instructed us not only in athletics, but also in the art of clean living and good sportsmanship, was born in Syracuse, Ind. He fin- ished high school there and also played on their basketball and base- ball teams. The basketball team went to the state finals in 1921. Druck was selected as one of the Ail State forwards, along with Wil- liams of Anderson, Vandivier of Franklin, Robbins of Rochester, and Nyikos of South Bend. He entered Indiana University in 1922, and played three years on the varsity basketball and baseball teams. During his college career, " Druck " was a member of the baseball team that won the Big Ten title undisputed, and during his senior year, he rated as the best second baseman ever to play at Indiana U. In 1929, after two years ' coaching at Syracuse, Mr. Druckamiller accepted the position of coaching and teaching at the Angola City Schools and has achieved a very fine record. " DRUCK ' S " NINE-YEAR RECORD AT ANGOLA Basketball: 143 Games won; 81 lost. 6 County championships. 2 Sectional championships. Defeated five times in finals of sectional.

THE TEAM The team has greatly developed in speed in spite of the generally small stature of the men this season, and as time advanced, they were play- ing a fast and clever brand of ball. Their chances looked promising to win the sectional of which we were hosts this year; but after the sea- sonal grind and the work leading up to the sectional games, about four hours before the starting whistle, we were informed that through misinterpretation of the rules, we had played too many games. Thus our labors went for naught, and to our disappointment the 1937 squad, five of whom wert- seniors, were barred from the sec- tional tournev. Standing-; Cuach Druckaniiller, r,obert Hall.

BILL BUTZ— fonran ■■Rutz " was one of tlie cle " erest ball handlers on the team, his passing made many baskets possible. Bill had a banner night against Au- burn, passing them dizzil " . He was very good at taking the ball out of a scrimmage: this is his secontl year on the varsity liard-wood. Senior. MAX TUCKER— foriran " Tucker " was one of the most con sis tan t players. He had a keen ability to pick the veakness of our opponents. Lack of height " was a great handicap to Max, but we could always count on liim to fight the full game. He has been on the arsity two jears. Senior. OWEN MOTE— Civi cr " Mote " was the key man on our offense. It was around Owen practicall.v all our plays were built. He did a very line job of making the plays " click " . His specialty was taking the ball off the back board to start a fast break. Mufli can lie expected from Owen as tlii is his first year on the varsity. Sophomore. ROBERT HALL— foriiflr " i iib " played ■er ' good basket ball for An- gola this year, and it was due to his shooting ability that the LaGrange and Ashley games were won. Hall always tried to do what he was told and was very reliable. He has been a var- sity booster two years. Senior. JAMES WATKINS— G; an " Jim " was one of our main cogrs on the ba-sketliall team.

Page fifty-iuo yJacK? oj " the |_Ji(5imond After school had taken up but a few weeks. Coach Druckamiller picked his boys to pkiy in the county tourney eliminations. In the first game Angola defeated Pleasant Lake in a close tilt, the score being 11 to 10. This being the first game, there were many errors made along with several erratic mis- takes. In the next game Angola dropped a close tilt to Fremont by the score of 1 to 0. Fre- mont was more settled in the closing frames and an error by Angola was costly. The Hor- nets then journeyed to Flint to swamp them by the score 22 to 0. Angola seemed to be hit- ting their stride in this game and pounded sev- eral Flint pitchers. Angola rallied in their fourth game to de- feat Orland 6 to 4. Orland made several er- rors in the closing innings and lost a sup- posedly won victory. Angola next met the strong Scott nine who defeated them in the early innings. The Hor- nets couldn ' t overtake them and dropped the contest 5 to 4. In the last game during the season Angola played with Metz. Angola went out to take a 3 to lead and held it until the last inning when Metz shoved across four runs, winning the game and also eliminating Angola from participating in the county tourney.

The boys who succeeded were: Bob Hall, LaMoyne Saul, Wendell Aldrich, and John Stage, with Owen Mote as alternate. These boys usually play in about the same score with an average of about 82 for eighteen holes. They have played together last year on a caddy team that had nine wins out of nine games played. A summary of what a golf team goes through is as follows: First, a team is organ- ized; then games are scheduled with other schools nearby to be played during April and the first part of May. On the first or second Saturday in May the State High School Golf Tournament is held. Any school that is registered may enter without any fee. Each team plays 1 8 holes on the Speedway Course at Indianapolis and the team having the lowest total score wins the tournament. A prize is also given to the boy who has the lowest score. The schedule was: May 6, Auburn there; May 7, Huntington, here; May 11, South Side of Fort Wayne, here; May 12, Huntington, there; May 1. , Auburn here; May 14, South Side of Fort Wayne, here; May 22, State Tourney at Indianapolis.

Sa j5L f -f. : - it A „4 n emoricyim TEDDY " Old Teddy " — my old pal — is no more. Sometimes it really touches me just thinking of him. I distinctly remember it: One day as I was coming to school, I sud- denly felt a warm creature panting beside me. Looking down — not very far, for after all he really was a large dog — I beheld Teddy just trotting along — trying to make friends with me as he always did with everyone else. " Well, hello, old pal! " was my immediate response to his soul-felt greetings. " How are you today, anyway? " Inside, I could almost hear him give his reply, so human was this creature. Teddy and I walked on for nearly two blocks and — " My word; here we are, almost at the school house. Look, Teddy! See all the little children out there playing? Dear little things, aren ' t they? " It was too much for the town ' s best pal, so away he scrambled to assist the children in a ball game — as well as renew his glorious friendship with them. And such was Teddy — my friend — everyone ' s friend.

It is a gala affair at which the girls wear colorful gowns and the boys are resplendent in those new spring suits. This year the banquet was held at Potawatomi Inn on May 27. " The Super-fliver " was the theme for the program, decorations, and place cards, black and white, the senior class colors being used. Robert Holderness, president of the junior class, acted as toast- master. Wendell Aldrich gave the welcome, using as his subject " Headlights. " Max Tucker, senior president, responded with a toast on " The Horn. " " The Engine " was the subject of a toast to the board of education, given by James Crankshaw. " The Transmission " was described in a toast to the faculty by Stephen Ransburg. Mr. Estrich discussed " The Steering Wheel. " Beth Brown gave a toast, " The Bumper, " to the class sponsors. " A Flat Tire " was the subject of a talk by Miss Shultz. Virginia Goodrich played during the meal. June Kohl reigned as queen of the prom. The Baron of Blues or- chestra provided music for the dancing, the major entertainment of the evening. The event was one long to be remembered by the class of ' 38 and ' 37. G. R.— HI-Y HOP One of the big social events in the Hi-Y — Girl Reserve programs is the annual party. This year it was a delightful dance at the Armory Hall. Novelty dances included prize dances and a balloon dance, in which every girl tied a balloon around her ankle, and while dancing everyone tried, by hook or by crook, to burst it. The fact that a person has been dancing for years or never before makes no dif- ference at the G. R. — Hi-Y hop. Everyone dances! — and enters into the fun! The decorations were of the two clubs ' colors, blue and white for the Girl Reserves, and red and black for the Hi-Y. Crepe paper in these colors adorned the three main pillars. The archway was garbed in crepe paper, draped from the center downward to form a large bow on either side. The punch stand was similarly draped in red and white. Music for the occasion was furnished by the Revelers, who played just the type music young people delight in. l ' a: l ' fifty-ci- ht yjar - ♦ ♦ Seni I r-.H 1 " inki sj.n 1 s l ind Noi ma Pal !

" Mr. Elliott: " I expect to learn the date of the banquet. " Julia Jane Jackson: " What ' s the idea of staying an hour after school tonight? I wouldn ' t think of doing that.
