I I ' A K the key ter 194C published by the senior class in which we leek at pecple« places—and thins and thus it was written MAY OUR DREAMS BE BRIGHT " And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts ” — -Longfellow. Memories are fun. And the memories of school life form an intricate pattern which grows more brilliant, more sharply defined with every tick of the clock and every beat of the heart. Lighted corridors, darkened cor¬ ridors, snow against the windows, laughter, chewing gum in waste paper baskets, long walks in the rain, pencil boxes, black and white pages from multicolored books, a hand on the shoulder, and the hale comradeship of youth. We once saw a sundial bearing the inscription, ”1 count only the sunny hours.” Perhaps this book, like the sundial, counts, too, only the sunny hours of high school life and only the brightest of associations. But in the mind of every reader, the other half of the memory pattern is equally visible. For every note of laughter there is a chord of sorrow, and for every moment of joy there is a corresponding touch of pathos. They have become entwined, each with the other. If we have planned our lives well and erected our ideals upon a sound base, the moments of joy will become sacred and the moments of pathos become beautiful. As we read this book, may the faces which smile at us from the pages be the faces of our friends. May the places depicted here be those which have become most tender through long association. And may all our dreams be bright. Quiet, unassuming, she has entered our hearts through her kindness and understand¬ ing. In humble appreciation of her guidance and aid, we, the senior class of 1940, dedicate this work to her, RUBY SHULTZ in humble appreciaticn in iiieitii riciiii ROBERT LEE CRAIN March 6, 1922 June 1 , 1937 He walked among us for so short a time, and yet the memory of his smile has never dimmed in our hearts. To him we dedicate this page, in humble appreciation of his contributions not forgotten. We, his classmates, extend our sincere sympathy to those, his family and intimate friends, who were privileged to know him best and to whom his going was the greatest loss. Here stands the institu¬ tion that has helped us gain the ability to face life squarely. It has prepared us to meet the great adventures which lie ahead along the road of life. Page Seven superintendent For fifteen years Mr. Es- trich has filled capably the office of superintendent of Angola High School. Not only has he assumed the responsibility of executing the official duties of the school, but he is also the physics instructor. The students have come to look upon Mr. Estrich not as a master, but as a friend always willing to discuss their problems and cooperate in any projects which they may undertake. In 1932, Mr. Elliott ac¬ cepted the office of principal of the high school. During his service here, he has proved himself ex¬ ceedingly able, both in a teaching and in an admin¬ istrative capacity. Much of the smooth-function¬ ing Angola High School life is due directly to his capable leadership and his thorough knowledge of student-age children and their problems. principal Page Eight John L. Estrich, Superintendent; Edward C. Kolb, President. Leland Ewers, Treasurer; Ray Alwood, Secretary beard of education When a play is produced, not much is said about those who work behind stage—the light man, the stage hands, the book holder and others. We all know the play could not be given if these people did not give some of their time and talents to the cast and producer. In school we have much the same thing. We have " the men behind scenes” too—our school board. With¬ out their cooperation and aid our school could never exist. They are the men who solve the problems, that we, the students, raise; they give advice; and they settle hundreds of small items too numerous to mention. We, the seniors, should like to thank the members of our school board—Mr. Alwood, Mr. Kolb, and Mr. Ewers—who, along with Mr. Estrich, have so faithfully and wil¬ lingly rendered their services in making Angola High better than ever before.

Since the era of the hickory stick and the old log school, readin’, ’ritin’, and ’rithmetic have been con¬ sidered the basis of juvenile education. A thorough background in these humble fundamentals is still essential to the youngster’s well-being as he climbs the proverbial educational ladder through grade school, high school, college, and into the complex business world of today. The men and women pictured above are those who make seven apples from four apples and three apples. It is they who establish the ABC’s and 1492 as vital in the lives of every young American. It is they who form the nucleus of the educational structure. To them is due all credit. they make the little things count Page Twelve friends in need - friends indeed " Wonder what Mrs. Borne is cooking today; sure smells good.” " This door is locked again. Find Uncle Bert and get the keys.” " Whew! It’s stuffy in here. Have Vern see if the ventilator is working.” These are some of the familiar phrases heard each day while one is passing through the halls of Angola High. Our janitors are good friends to everyone and we seniors shall never forget the kindly gentleman whom we call " Uncle Bert” and the tall lean fellow with the black moustache, Vern Fifer. Along with the friendly and obliging janitors, we find Mrs. Borne, our faithful cook in the cafeteria. She can certainly fix a tasty meal. Then, too, we shall always re¬ member the caretaker of the gym, Vern Easterday.

Should you ask me whence these legends. Whence these stories and traditions, I would answer, I would tell you From the lips of my own classmates, From the records of the teachers, From the things I, too, have witnessed; In the class that here is gathered There are twenty-four youths and twenty-six maidens. Four long years we’ve worked together, Worked and played and planned together, Proud we’ve been of this our high school. This our school in Angola; Thankful to each one who helped us, Parents, teachers, friends and classmates. To complete a four-year school course. Some may ask why all this labor, All this money spent upon us. They will make our lives the broader, Make them all the more worth living. Shall I tell you what we’ve learned here? For so few have heard our classes, Ever been inside the class room. We can measure planes and solids, Tell of earth and air and water And some rules that they do govern; We’ve learned something of our bodies, How to care for them and feed them, Of the soil and how to keep it In condition for our planting, Of all the ancient countries, Of their manners, laws and customs, We’ve read in Julius Caesar, How he came and saw and conquered, And Napoleon we’ve followed On his march right o’er the mountains; We have studied many authors, Both our own and in far countries, And the ways of doing business, In shorthand, typing and debating. We have learned to cook and handle Plane and saw and rule and hammer, Paint and sing and sew and whisper; We have reached now our Commencement, Finished all our years in high school, And a gladness and a sadness Mingle as we leave these places, As this chapter now we finish Of this wondrous life we’re living Soon our prophet will inform you Of the great things now before us. —Margaret Ellen hnus Standing: Jeanne Preston, Wauneta Shoup, Mary Ellen Kice, Pearle Roberts, Leona S ' haull, Lily Mae Welch, Dorothy Homan, Evelyn Stage, Maxine Rhinesmith, Donelda Bell L-ois Mae Latson, Betty Lynn Mvers, Marcella Berry Betty Keekler, Ellen Green, Norma Hull.

Just imagine my surprise when I found that the great commercial artist, Norma Hull, was aboard, and that the captain of the liner was Roscoe Nedele. His pretty wife, the great American actress, Eileen Erbe, was traveling with him. The first and second mates of the mighty liner were Eddie Carlson and Morris Whitlock respectively. That evening as I went to dinner I saw Robert Porter of Wall Street dining with his secretary, Barbara Reese. At the table adjoining me was the ship’s doctor, John Harvey. Nice going, Johnnie! And nurses, Bettie and Billie Bassett, who were associated with him, were also there. In a far off corner of the dining room was Max Moore, title holder of the Open Golf Tournament of 195 8-59. Music those few evenings was furnished by Bill Hopkins’ Rippling Rovateers with Betty Keckler and Bob Seely as featured soloists. Donn Laird was his first trombonist. The next morning as I was in my deck chair for a bit of fresh air along came some of the sailors and, believe it or not, they were no other than Don Osborne, Jack Bryan, Robert McKinley, and Ora Sierer. In the amusement room a foursome of school teachers, including Esther Ferrier, Marguerite Moor, Donelda Bell, and June Rothenbuhler of the class of ’40, were engaged in a game of bridge. Wauneta Shoup, Evelyn Stage and Ellen Green, all three secretaries on vacation, were looking for a fourth for a game of deck tennis. At the swimming pool I saw Marge Imus, swimming instructress, endeavoring to teach some passengers the mermaid’s art. I lunched with Louise Griffiths, who was in charge of the ship’s beauty salon; her assistants were Iona Huntington and Margaret Fast. Mary E. Agner was the buyer of new crea¬ tions for the exclusive dress shoppe of Jeanne Preston and Madolynn Myers in New York. They were all three going to Paris. Nice going, kids! The ever famous chemical research engi¬ neer, James Mitchell, was aboard going to Egypt, and Dick Bender was enroute to Oxford to coach athletics. By this time Elden Kelley and David Hall had become fa¬ mous furniture designers and makers and both were going to Europe to design furni¬ ture for the Buckingham Palace. Of course there is always a group that marry rich men and get to travel for their own pleasure; those were Joanne Shoup, Bette Mounts, Virginia Kauffman, and Hazel Wells. Wasn’t that grand! Leland Morrison and Devon Reese were crossing with their new plane, taking it to England for a test flight. The All-Amer¬ ican Baseball Team was going across also and two of its distinguished members were none other than Carlton Wells, pitcher, and David Sowle, first baseman. Franz Wells was going to Ireland to fish off the coast there and Lucille Hubbell was going on an European tour giving piano concerts. Another well known figure on board was Secretary of State Burton Kolb enroute to London. There is the review of the Class of ’40, all in action in 1960. Some were doing what they had planned in A. H. S. —GLORIA DELLER. Page Twenty-three valedictcry A SKY FULL OF STARS Two men stood in the Colosseum at Rome. The first, thrilled by the atmosphere per¬ vading the most famous arena at that time, turned to his friend and said, " Think of the men who have been here, the men who have walked this very soil.” " No,” replied the second, turning to him. No, my friend. Think rather of the men who will walk here through the years to come.” We, Angola High School’s graduating class of 1940, stand here uncertainly, about to take the first toddling steps which will lead us into the business of every-day living. Like a group of modern Aladdins, we are about to exchange old lamps for new. Today, our personalities are basically very much the same. We wear the same clothes, eat the same food, read the same books, and sing the same songs. We are the sons and daughters of the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker. We are part of that great classification known as " children” in general and " high school students” in particular. Tomorrow all this will be changed. Tomor¬ row we shall have begun the business of living for ourselves, and we shall have begun the molding of our own personalities. In not too many tomorrows in the future, we shall ourselves have become the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker, the doctor, the lawyer, the merchant, and the chief. We cease to be students and become people. But the elder butchers and bakers and can¬ dlestick makers will be pessimistic, indeed. This business of living, they will warn us, is a hard row to hoe. On every hand, men and women of ability equal to our own will be competing with us on our own ground, ready to take the bread from our plates and the hope from our souls. We who are younger are not afraid. Like the man in the Roman Colosseum, we must not worship those great men who have walked before—we must think, too, of the great men who are yet to live, the men who will walk the earth with us. We will sing the song to be found in the lines of Tenny¬ son’s Locksley Hall: Yearning for the large excitement that the coming years would yield, Eager-hearted as a boy when first he leaves his father’s field. And his spirit leaps within him to be gone before him then, Underneath the light he looks at, in among the throngs of men; Men, my brothers, men the workers, ever reaping something new; That which they have done but earnest of the things that they shall do. We who are being graduated are ready to accept the challenge. Someone has said, " Invent a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door.” There is always room in this great business of living for those who are honest in purpose and sincere in ideals. The sky is still full of stars. —NORMA HULL. Page Twenty-four salutatory SUCCESS Today we, the class ' of 1940, are completing twelve years of preparation for life. Tomorrow we must step out into the world and take our places in society. Of course we plan to enter varied and different fields of work. We have different specific goals. Undoubtedly, those who wish to be engineers want to design the longest bridge, the most efficient turbine, or achieve some other great engineering feat. Those who wish to be statesmen want to pilot the ship of state to still greater heights. Each of us have probably set some goal for himself. These specific goals are different, but the great general goal of all is to live suc¬ cessful lives. , ...... . , If our foremost aim in life is to be successful, we must have some definition of success. The dictionary gives this definition: " The act of succeeding, or the state of having succeeded.” Of course, this is a general definition and so one must make a definition to suit his individual case. Different people have different ideas of what a person must do to be successful in life. I should say that a truly successful person is one who leaves the world a better place in which to live than it was when he entered it. This is my aim. . . . . but how is one going to achieve success. One cannot buy a ticket to it. All the money in the world cannot purchase it. One may become wealthy, popular, or even famous; and still he may not be truly successful according to my definition. Whatever one does to make the world better must come from his own mind; therefore his motto should be Think. Incident¬ ally, this is the motto of one of America’s most successful business men, Thomas J. Watson, who, as pres¬ ident of International Business Machines, makes nearly half a million dollars a year. Although one cannot follow any set road to success, there are several traits of character which, if developed, will greatly increase one’s chances of being suc¬ cessful. Roger W. Babson, a noted economist, in his book, " Making Good in Business, has classified all the requisites into six basic character traits. They are: Industry, Integrity, Intelligence, Initiative, Inten¬ sity, and Inspiration. If these are the keys to success, they certainly are worth consideration in some detail. Industry: Everyone knows what happens to the lazy individual. Ele, figuratively, dies on his feet. A lazy man can’t get ahead today because there are too many energetic people trying to get the better positions. In these days of intense competition, one must be " in there plugging” all the time in order to get ahead. Integrity: Nearly everyone has heard the old maxim, " He who cheats, cheats only himself.” This is more true today than ever before. With the modern ac¬ counting systems of business, no one can go on cheating long without being discovered. Many promising men have fallen by the wayside because they lacked the most important of all characteristics, integrity. Aside from the criminal aspects of dishonesty, it is obviously true that no one can do his best without a clear conscience. intelligence: Intelligence does not mean mere book learning. Intelligence is judgment, which is the ability to think clearly, justly, and courageously. Al¬ though intelligence is to some degree inherited, one can improve it by the development of other charac¬ teristics, such as honesty, courage, and resourcefulness. Initiative: One can be happy without initiative, but he can never be successful. Initiative is the driving power of life. It is like the gasoline in a motor. A person can have a good brain, a good character, and a good personality, but still fail because he lacks initiative, the driving power. Intensity: Today, the day of specialization, one must concentrate on doing one thing, and doing it well. You have all heard of the jack-of-all-trades and master of none. To be successful, one must decide what one thing he can do best, and study that one thing un¬ til he knows as much or more about it than anyone else. Then he can " lead the field.” Inspiration: This is the trait which stimulates the other fire. A great musician cannot write a note of music without it. A poet can’t attempt a single verse without it. Inspiration is the characteristic which sets one’s mind in motion. So if one has devel¬ oped industry, integrity, intelligence, initiative, and intensity, all he needs is one vital spark of inspira¬ tion; and he is well on his way to success. It is my sincere wish that this class, hiving acquired most of the traits requisite to successful living, may go out into society and in the years to come, improve that society. In doing this, they will be truly successful. —BURTON KOLB.

The annual is growing bigger and better as the years go by. The change is remarkable. In 1905 the first annual of A. H. S. came into existence. It was called " The Spectator” and was a small book containing the record of the year’s activities. . The 1911 and 1912 issues were outstanding for the number of features which appeared for the first time. Never before the 1911 edition had the seniors had mottos under their pictures. The salutatory and valedictory addresses, the class will, and art work made their first appearances in the 1912 issue. The next year the class prophecy was added. The year 1919 marks the beginning of a new name for our annual. " The Key” took the place of " The Spectator.” It was published bi -monthly and editorials appeared for the first time. The seniors’ individual pictures were placed on one page. The other three classes had group pictures. Group pictures of the orchestra and chorus, the basketball team and the Key staff also appeared for the first time. A whole p age was devoted to snapshots. In the 3 0’s the Key had developed better covers, and it seems as though the future annual staffs will have a hard time finding improvements over the past issues. . The members of the staff of the 1940 an¬ nual were: Editor in chief, Norma Hull; assistant editor, Marguerite Moor; business manager, Burton Kolb; assistant, Roscoe Nedele; circulation manager, Bob Seely; art editor, Esther Ferrier; assistant, Gloria Deller; feature writer, Jeanne Preston; assistant, Madolynn Meyers; snapshot editor, Bettie Bassett; assistant, Mary E. Agner; classes, Iona Huntington; assistant, Donelda Bell; boys’ athletics, Bob McKinley; girls’ athletics, Margaret Fast; music, Betty Keckler; calendar, Margaret Imus; alumni, Billie Bassett; dramatics, Eileen Erbe; organizations, Robert Porter; jokes, Donn Laird. Each year finds the Key with new features added and some old ones dropped. May the Keys in the future be as good as those in the past. with paste pet and pencil Page Forty student council At the beginning of the year the Student Council started its eighth consecutive year of activity. It was guided this year by its faculty adviser, Mr. Dygert. It kept its highly esteemed aim of creating opportunities for closer cooperation between the students and faculty, providing opportunities for student direction, fostering all worthy school activities, providing a forum for discus¬ sion of questions of interest to the student body, and creating and maintaining stan¬ dards of good citizenship in Angola High School. Among the many activities of this body throughout the school year, the most important are: Setting up a more direct method of selecting cheer leaders, planning the last semester chapel programs, maintaining an information desk, sponsoring an anti-noise campaign throughout the school, and spon¬ soring several school parties. The council had its membership from the classes as follows: Seniors—Eileen Erbe, Norma Hull, Donn Laird, Roscoe Nedele; Juniors—JoAnn London, Miriam Simpson, Kerger Gartner, Harold Nelson; Sopho¬ mores—Lita Kiser, Mary Jane Summers, Frank Barnes, Don Ritter; Freshmen—Londa Rothenbuhler, Virginia Smith, Jack Weaver, Wendell Zimmer; Eighth Grade—Glenna Mae Golden, Allen Boyer; Seventh Grade—Beverly Stevens, Billy VanWagner. The officers were: President, Donn Laird; vice president, Flarold Nelson; secretary and treasurer, Miriam Simpson; reporter, Lita Kiser.

Second row: Billy Benson, Carl Sunday, Mr. Handy, David Sowle, Emerson Imus. The Angola High School Debate class did no formal debating this year but confined its activities mainly to dramatics and informal discussions. A three-act comedy entitled " New Fires” was presented early in the fall to help finance the year’s work and to be used for equipment needed by the speech class. Two chapel programs were given in the first semester. The first, a play, " Thanksgiving Family Style,” was presented shortly before Thanksgiving, and the second, " A Day on the Radio as the Debate Class Sees It” was presented in the latter part of the semester. The second semester was given over entirely to speech work. The class was increased by nine new members: Lewis Ott, Donald Morse, Charles Spangle, Frank Sanders, DeVon Reese, Dolores Nelson, Janet Kyle, Har¬ riet Carver, and Kimsey Dole. As was the custom in previous years, the speech club was formed at the beginning of the second semester. This year’s club was called " Handy’s Pansies” with black and blue as its colors. " When You Flave to Blow, You Have to Blow” was the motto and the pansy was the official flower. The speech class presented " Elmer,” a one- act play, in chapel in the forepart of the semester. The year was terminated by a picnic and weiner roast at Lake James. All dramatics and speech activities were un¬ der the supervision and guidance of Mr. Handy. Page Forty-two gavel and gab eirls athletic club The Girls’ Athletic Club was organized the first week of school. The club met every Thursday night after school. The officers were: President, Leane Kling; secretary, Dolores Nelson. The activities for the year consisted of basketball, tumbling, volley ball, table tennis, soft ball, archery and hikes. A very good exhibition of tumbling was presented by the G. A. C. girls at the Halloween festival in the gymnasium last fall. On May 1, the physical education depart¬ ment including both boys and girls put on an Athletic Demonstration. Both boys and girls illustrated what they had done throughout the school year. The G. A. C. girls put on something new this year, A Modern Dance Demonstration. Numerals and letters were awarded to girls who have been members of G. A. C. for this year and previous years for attendance and participation in activities.

The Girl Reserve club was first organized in Angola High School under the direction of Miss Kathryn Dewees in 1927. The membership has increased each year and any girl in the sophomore, junior or senior class is eligible for membership.

The next year the name was changed to " The Hornet” and has remained the same since then. It has been the custom for the journalism class to edit this paper. It gives the pupils experience in interviewing people and writing articles and editorials for publication. This year several members of the class interview¬ ed different outstanding people of our town. Those interviewed were Judge Clyde Carlin and Miss Alice Parrott of the English department of Tri-State College. There was also a special tournament issue which contained pictures of the first and second teams and other basketball information. The Hornet usually appears each month with a bright and different colored cover and with lots of news and jokes. Each year the Hornet staff tries to vary the issues and make them a little better than the preceding ones. May the future Hornets continue to measure up to the standard set in the past.

THE SEASON IN REVIEW The Hornets started the season right by winning two straight victories, over Wolcottville 3 8 to 32 and Butler 23 to 22. Then the strong Kendallville team defeated Angola 44 to 28; Waterloo edged us by a 27 to 25 score; New Paris nosed us out 2 5 to 21; and Garrett edged us 27 to 2 5. After losing four straight games the Hor¬ nets broke into the win column by defeating Fremont 44 to 14, and Albion 32 to 12. Edon, Ohio, edged the Hornets in a heart-breaker 3 1 to 29. LaGrange built up a sub¬ stantial lead in the first half and beat Angola 3 8 to 28. The Hornets started another win column by edging Ashley 28 to 27. Then Angola went into the county tourney as a dark horse and won their way through, beating Metz in the final game 3 8 to 3 2. The Hornets journeyed to Auburn and were defeated 41 to 25. South Bend (Washington) gave the Hornets a trouncing 34 to 24. Angola defeated Salem 27 to 15; Avilla edged the Hornets 3 5 to 28; Bryan, Ohio, trounced Angola 44 to 29; and Butler finished the season by winning over us 28 to 26. Angola was defeated in the first round of the sectional by Garrett 54 to 3 6. After winning from us the Railroaders went on to win the sectional. Thus the curtain was lowered on another great Hornet basketball team. Page Fifty-eight yearlings take me cut tc the ball same l This year Coach Hall called baseball prac¬ tice very early. Holderness, coming out for his first year received the right field posi¬ tion. Brown, a newcomer in school as a freshman, received the first sacker’s job. Most of the games were pitched by Wells and Harvey did the receiving. Coach Hall had a contest to see who would be the heaviest hitter. Whitlock proved to be the big slugger of the team by edging out Wells. At the end of the season he received a bat for his reward. This year the team finished with a record of five wins, four losses, and one tie. In the opening game of the season Angola bowed to Metz 1 to 7. The first part of the game was fast with Angola getting the only score in the first four innings. In the fourth Metz collected two runs and five more in the last two. , , ... , TT ,, , After a little more experience the Hall boys trounced Scott 18 to 3. Wells was the big gun for Angola, getting two triples and a double.

Cheer leaders are a great aid to the school not only because they give the game more pep, but also because the players on the floor receive inspiration from the yells. This year Lois Kiser and Johnny Keckler, our cheer leaders, did an especially fine job. They origi¬ nated many new yells and made our cheering section outstanding at all the games. For their work we extend our wholehearted appreciation. ;rs, ■ v JOHNNY KECKLER, LOIS KISER county tourney The Angola Hornets won the county bas¬ ketball tourney in very close and thrilling games. The Hornets played Pleasant Lake in the first round and won 3 0 to 21. In the second round Angola met Fremont and gave her a beating to the tune of 3 9 to 17. In the finals Angola played Metz and al¬ though Metz had the height Angola emerged the winner with a score of 3 8 to 32. Since the county tourneys began in 1927 and including 1940, Angola has won the title of Steuben County Basketball Champions ten different times.

The first party of the year was given by the Student Council and was a skating party at Silver Moon. The seniors sponsored the first school dance in the orchestra room. Ping pong, shuffle board and other games were in the recrea¬ tion room under the auditorium. Refreshments were served. One of the most unique parties of the year was the " Junior Carnival.” The music was furnished by the high school dance band. Very clever concessions were arranged and the refreshments were weiners and pop. The last party of the year was entirely dif¬ ferent from the others and was sponsored by the freshmen and sophomores. It was an outdoor party and the main sources of entertainment were archery, baseball and other outdoor games. The scene was Hamilton Lake.
