At graduation the seniors pass for the last time through these same doors which they en- tered twelve years ago. This will mark the closing of one part of their lives and an embarking upon def- inite careers. Page Three IN APPRECIATION To Air. Certain, a real friend, always fair and devoted to the weljare of his students, the Seniors express their sincere appreciation and hate to say " Good-bye " .

Page Eight AMERICANISM TbioHgh the hitdership of the faculty we have itr ' ned to become better students and citizens. Page Nine JOHN L. ESTRICH Superintendent of Schools 1925 - 1944 School Heads The response of American Youth to the national emergency commands the admiration of all. If there ever was any doubt as to the type of citizenship being developed in America, it has been dispelled by the wholehearted, intel- ligent, efficient service now being laid on the altars of our country. In the perplexing days ahead America may continue to rely on the same high quality of consecrated service from the young people of our fair land. — John L. Estviclj. Our boys — Angola boys, are on battle- fronts in every corner of the world today. They are fighting to preserve certain principles and inalienable rights in which all Americans be- lieve. Among these are: respect for individual rights, religious liberty, equality of opportunity, economic independence, and wholesome living conditions. We designate these as " democratic principles " . They are gifts which are ours by virtue of our citizenship. Only as we use these rights and privileges for the betterment of all mankind are we living examples of American- ism. American citizenship is a gift. American- ism means sharing the ideals of this gift with the world. —Clayton H. Ell off. CLAYTON H.

It is one of the barriers that stands between us, the American people, and a t)Tannical form of government. Education perpetu-ites a democracy. When a people are well-informed, and well- educated, no one person or group of persons can lead them into a road at whose end lies only destruction and decay. By the word " education " , we should not necessarily mean 12 or 16 years of school- ing, with a diploma to show for one ' s work. While that is very important, the real meaning of the word has a deeper significance. A person can continue his education as he goes through life by keeping a clear and open mind : by being ready at all times to accept facts even though they had heretofore been strange or different to him; by showing a great tolerance and broad understanding of other peoples and their problems. It is the realization of this fact that is so valuable to ever) ' individual. We, the graduating class, are going to have a hand in the shaping of a new world after this war. And this world is going to demand some solid foundations. We cannot afford to blunder through such an important and vital step. We must be clear-headed, and straight-thinking m all our plans. Before us lies this enormous task of building anew. We can promise you this, that we will make our greatest effort to face courageously the job that must be done. We are confident that the education we have received, and will continue to receive throughout our lives, will be of great help in solving the problems which lie before us. — Joanna Bartley. Page Twenty-four aluiaioi V YOUTH We, the youth of America, have a stupendous task before us. We have on ever) ' side conflicting statements sucli as these: We shall have the burden of the war on our shoulders, heav)- debts, unemployment, and over all depression beyond anything the world has ever seen ; and in contrast, we shall reap the fruits of technological develop- ment, utilize the inventions, discoveries and skills developed by the war. It is up to us which of these suggestions will shape our course. The poet says: " We have no time to sport away the hours: All must be earnest in a world like ours " We must keep our youth. Youth is courage, seeing clear, living clean, loving with- out greed, giving without regret; Youth is keeping alive the truths of life. As we develop our individual talents, so will we be able to contribute our full share in the building of future America. Emerson told us that we must build our own world. " Hitch your wagon to a star, " he said. How can we be idealistic in times like this, you ask. Right ideas alone are success- ful. There is always a place for these ideas and they bring their fruitage with them. Our ideas and ideals are our own individuality. This we must develop. A little boy who had won first place in a flower-growing contest, on account of his large and beautiful speci- mens was asked how he had raised such blossoms, for it was known that he had only a small and unfertile plot on which to grow them. He answered simply, " I saw the blossoms when I planted the seeds. " We must see more of the blossoms. Do not they typify that springtide of the heart, when one rejoices in the dawn of Iiope and faith in the future.- ' It is vitally important for us to maintain a joyous outlook, a kindly attitude, and the daily expectancy of good if we would bring them into our own experience. James Russell Lowell left these beautiful lines for us: " New occasions teach new duties; Time makes ancient good uncouth; They must upward still, and onward, who would keep abreast of Truth: Lo, before us gleam her c.imp-hres ! we ourselves must Pilgrims be. Launch our Mayflower, and steer boldly through the desperate winter sea. Nor attempt the Future ' s portal with the Past ' s blood-rusted key. " — GUniia Mje Golden Page Twentv-five j ad Will anc) ledament Be it remember that we, the Class of of 1944 of Angola High School, situated in the town of An- gola in the Count)- of Steuben in the State of Indiana, being in our usual unsound state of mind and mem- on, ' , but mindful of the uncertainty of this life, and our approaching dismemberment, do make, publish, and declare this our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by us made. After the payment of rll our just debts, funeral charges, grudges, and expenses of administration, we dispose of our estate as follows: To our Principal, Mr. Elliott, who has been our faithful guardian for four years, we give the ex- treme pleasure of getting rid of us. May he never have another class as trying as this one. To Mr. Estrlch we bequeath our share of pencil marks on the school walls, and our equity in every stray cat and dog which his encamped on the school property during the past four years. To Mr. Druckamiller, our athletic coach, and Miss Risk, our commando instructor, we bequeath all sprains, brujses, broken noses, teeth and legs, cuts, kicks, and black eyes we will not be around to take personally after graduation. To Mr. Druckamiller, we also bequeath the school gymnasium and baseball diamond, which we do not need and, furthermore, which we do not own. We hope they will have many successful athletic teams now that we are going. Without us, anything may be possible. To Mr. Dygert, our skilful teacher of mathematics, we give and beque.tth every bad word we uttered m our hopeless attempt to master algebra and geometry. With his natural ability added to the possession of our natural vocabularies, he should be able to make mathematical wizards of all his future mathe- matics pupils. To Miss Reed, our linguistic teacher, we give the magnificent collection of translations we have so laboriously writtten into ail the school Latin books. Her future classes will seem smarter with less effort than we expended, although we do doubt their ability to expend less effort. To Mr. Handy, teacher of history, we bequeath the Civil War, Alexander the Great, and the Tower of Babylon History may repeat itself. But in matters of discipline, Mr. Handy did not repeat himself. X ' e always heard him the first time. To Miss Shultz, instructor of English, we endow our liberal supply of slang. With it we offer the free advice that such picturesque slang i s only appropriate when accompanied by a large chew of plug tobacco. May she master both arts during the coming years. To the Junior Class, we give and bequeath our seats in the senior room, including such of our initials as are inscribed upon the desks, and our erasers, pencils, spitballs, pieces of chalk, and cuds of gum which we neglected to remove in the haste of our departure. May these small tokens help them to while away a year of senior learning as they have us. To the Sophomore Class, we bequeath such grudges as the faculty of this school may still hold against us for our sins of commission and omission May they bear the brunt of these grudges in a meek and humble spirit to which they have not already become accustomed. To the Freshman class, we have nothing left to bequeath but a lot of good advice. Do not study Page Twenty-six too hard, for it will make you sick and unhealthy, and no future employer wants a sickly graduate any more than a horse thief desires to take an unsound horse. If you would obtain good grades without study, then laugh heartily at all your teachers ' jokes even though you are hearing them for the hundreth time, ask your teachers questions about the lessons after class, and give each of them a red apple every morning, and a valentine on February 14. Always carry a lot of books with you to and from school and classes but never look within their covers. The inside pages of your school books are laden with microbes from the contaminatmg use of former classes. Whenever you are caught in any offense look very scared and sorry and your punishment will be light. If you will obey all these rules, then three years from now you will be occupying these places of solem nity and dignity with a minimum of effort and wear and tear. In addition to these bequests we wish to dispose of some more personal items as follows: I, Gloria Aldrich, do hereby will and bequeath m.y flat feet to Mary Jean Kohl. I, Robert Andrews, do hereby will and bequeath my marvelous ability to stay awake in civics — most of the time, to David Smith.

Page Thirty-one Senior Progress Time marches on — so goes the old saying. And with tlie passing of time a new generation is born. Let us look at this new generation and watch the process by which they grow to be young men and women through education. Thus started this great race of seniors in the civilized world, changing and shaping into new and better men and women until they reach maturity. Always eager to learn something new each day to strengthen their education, they began their progress. After their first foot-step on the soil of the school campus they groped and strug- gled and pushed forward. They blundered from one grade room to another, slowly unlocking the door to education and moving on their way toward the time when they too might become seniors. From there they join many others in the strife to reach the top. The years seemed to fly by and time marched steadily on, to the tune of the tramp- ing of the class of ' 44. Their first experience in the grades had gone by leavmg only memories behind. Now looking ahead they .see mysteries of the unexplored plains of the coming high school days. The first pilgrimage was to be in the Freshman land. This siege was longer and harder than the ethers and time wroughr h.irdships on the seniors. At the beginning of this year they numbered 49; they gained Robert Reed and Robert Dygert. They lost Ernest Boulware, Joan Griffiths, Gaylord Kope, Richard Miller, Helen Morse, Barbara Murphy, Eugene Nichols, John Rinehart, Keith Ritter Anita Straw, Dale Ickes, Lafe Shively, Mickle Henry, and George Myers. At the be gining of the second year their number had decreased to 37 ; they gained Anne Austin Joanna Hartley, Patricia Drummond, Ilene Fordyce, Harland French, Don Fulton Eleanor Hagerty, Onedia Halsey, Max Moor, Evelyn Pence, Mike Pristas, Jack Sharpless. Yavonne Wolfe. They lost Patricia Drummond, Eleanor Hagerty, Jack Sharpless, Frank Fast, Harold Green, Edward Jackson. Marching steadily forward, they came to their third year with the number 44; they gained Connie Curran, Donna Herb, Mary Kelly ; they lost Anne Austin, Onedia Halsey, Max Moot, Warren Bennett, Norman Cook, Lois Pence, Betty Varner. The most important year of all, their fourth year, had come at last, giving them a start with 40 ; they gained Edward Jackson and lost Harland French, Mike Pristas, Yavonne Wolfe, Arnold Bell, Keith Castner, Marjoric Forbes, Robert Lee, Marilyn Thumm, Connie Curran, Donna Herb, Mary Kelly. By this time the faculty, underclassmen, all, along with the seniors, were awaiting the inevitable time when the seniors would receive their diplomas and leave the portals of A. H. S. One day the graduation exercises came; but instead of cheers and applauding, there were many solemn, unhappy, forgiving faces left behind. Another class of seniors has passed the test and graduated into their place in the outside world of success or failure. Hail to the seniors! Page Thirty-two It All Comes Back To Me Now Who can forget those shy Freshman days when we were in school ... Oh yes, and what ambitions we had — we were going to be great — maybe even president - tsk! tsk! Such optimism. ' ! . . . How bright and eager we were each morning to come to school ... We met new friends each diy and worked (we were Freshmen then!) with them in class and played with them outside dc A few months went by and the sun csme up over hundreds of times . . . What a difference that made in our character, attitude and sense of humor!! From those green Freshmen we became those wise Sophomores who " knew it all " ... so we thought . That ' s the year most of us worked the hardest and barely had any extra time . . . well anyway, SOME people worked hard. That was the year Lynn Garn started as Class President . . . Heil Charley!!! In that year a Mr. Johnson came to our school . . . remem- ber him? . . . that ' s enough sighing, girls ... And isn ' t that the year we got stabbed in the back by the Japs. ' . . . Well, we showed them . . . How. ' .?. ' Well, we collect scrap iron . . . bought stamps and bonds . . . Anything for victory! Two years went by and then we were full-fledged Juniors . . . only one more year of struggling left . . . groan . . . Charley was our President and Bob Andrews our vice- president . . . Remember the Junior Senior Banquet. ' ... Oh Boy!!! Did we have a swell time ... it was worth promismg to cut our neighbors lawn all summer because we borrowed his car. . . . Well, here we are . . look at us . . . We ' re running the school now and if you classmen don ' t like it, well ! ' !I , . . Yes, we ' re all " big shots " now ... But thank goodness we haven ' t become so self-centered that we don ' t know our friends any more ... By now our life has been just chosen for us — if we could only start over again. We ' d do it the very same way!!! Charley was our president this year— yep!!! held his office three years!!— And who can forget that performance of " Junior Miss " for our Senior Play. ' . . . Nope you can ' t even compare it! . . . well, how about after play practice . . . have any fun. ' . . . Well, let ' s see what we got this year . . . calling cards, invitations, evening gowns, and ... and .. . just loads of things . . . How did we pay for them. ' ... oh, we just sent them C.O.D. . . . Call on Dad !!!... Oh boy!!! . . . There ' s the Prom . . . Every time you see someone in the hall your heart starts " palpitating " to swing time ... you know what I mean . . . That night will live long in our memory . . . Everything except what Pa said when we come in like a culprit at a. m. . . . Well, it ' s time to go, friends . . . Commencement ' s here ... and you can h.ear the faculty breathe i sigh of relief . . problem children, weren ' t we . . . and I thought they ' d be sorry to see us go . . . From school some got educations, others got experience . . . some got heart trouble ... a few got A ' s . . . many got special Repo ' rts . . . But we all have our memories.

The Angola Giri Resen-e Club was first organized in 1927 under the direction of Miss Kathryn De " ees. Its program has expanded during the years and its activities have been carried on with ever increasing interest. At the meetings this year many interesting talks were given by outside speakers, among whom were the Reverend Humlreys. Mr, Estrich. Mr. Shank, and Mrs. Metz. At Christmas a group of the Girl Reserves sang tor the people at the County Farm as well as taking them a treat of oranges. The Hi-Y boys entertained the Girl . Reserves at an ice-skating party at Little Center Lake on Janu- ary 10. Refreshments of hot chocolate and doughnuts were served and a good time was had by all. On March , the Girl Reserves returned the favor and invited the Hi-Y ' s to a party held in the school build- ing. The students enjoyed ping-pong, square dancing, and round dancing After a floor show two door prizes were given and refreshments were served. The annual Pa-Ma-Me banquet was held at the Christian Church on March 28. The theme of the banquet was " The U.S.S. Friendship " which was carried out in table decorations, favors and toasts.

The Angola chapter of the Hi-Y club was org,ini2ed in 19-2 by Mr. Estrich, and was the first Hi-Y club to be organized in the state of Indiana. The purpose of the club is " To create, maintain, and extend throughout the community high ideals of Christian character. " A large number of the weekly meetings, held on Monday evenings, were devoted to discussions, led by Mr. Estrich, on " Knowing Yourself. " Among other activities members of the club enjoyed were an ice skating party held at Little Center Lake with the Girl Reserves and members of the faculty as guests, and a party at the school buildmg given by the Girl Reserves. The club also played three basketball games with the F. F. A., being victorious the first two times, and losing to the Future Fanners in the third game At the beginning of each meeting a chapter from the Bible was read. This was fol- lowed by all members standing and repeating the " Lord ' s Prayer. " The meetings ended with the reading of the " Whangdoodle " , the club scandal sheet. Every member had a chance to write and read the " Whangdoodle " sometime dur- ing the year. The officers for the year were: President, Jim Keckler; vice-president, Ralph Martin; secretary-treasurer, Carl Strait; sergeant-at-arms, Allen Boyer, Mr. Estrich was the adviser.

The yearbook st:tff this year has shown exceptionally fine teamwork in the putting together of this Key Annual. They all cooperated with their Editor-in-Chief, and did their best work at all times. The main thought of every senior during the last few weeks in February centered around the Key Annual. Some rypical snaiches of conversation were: " I ' ve just got to get this in by Monday. " . . . " Did you bring your baby picture this morning? " . . . " Now I want that article centered like this. " . . . " She wants this typed double-spaced. " . . . And so, far on into the schoolday. After a good deal of rushing around, the Key Annual was finally assembled and sent off to the printer. It was the desire of the staff to put out a Key Annual that would portray school life to its fullest extent. This we have tried hard to do, and we sincerely hope that, in the eyes of the student body, we have succeeded. Page Forty-four Student Council The Student Council was founded in order to promote closer relationship between active organizations. Each year it has operated with greater finesse and has led the school on to greater achievements. The Student Council was founded in order to promite closer relationsip between the students and the faculty, to provide opportunities for the students to become good citizens and leaders, and to improve school conditions by increasing school spirit and scholarship. This year ' s sponsor was Miss Frantz, who guided the council through a successful year. Some of the activities of the council wereT Supervising the election of the cheer- leaders ; decorating the high school gymnasium for the county basketball tourney ; securing the second semester ' s chapel programs; and setting dates for school parties.

Page Forty-six Senior Play The Senior class this ye r presented the broadw.iv hit [unior Miss " in our auditorium, February 6 and 7. 1944. The play aroused not only the interest of the high school students but that of the entire community. This was probably due to the popularity of the stage play in New York and London as well as our well-organized publicity campaign. With one of the most beautiful stage sets in this commurdty for some time and unique portrayal of all characters the play was definitely a success. The cast will never forget scripts, late rehearsals, belated lunches, no classes, sleepless nights, and the evening performances. The play was under the direction of Charles Edwin Shank. The cast included: Harry Graves, Ralph Martin; Josie, the elevator girl, Shirley Erbe; Grace Graves, Evelyn Pence; Hilda, Sue Zane Goudy; Lois Graves, Mari-Jean Chaddick; Judy Graves, Gloria Aldrlch; Fuffy Adams. Mar|0rie Yoder ; J. B. Curtis, James Keckler; Ellen Curtis. Billye Nell Certain; Willis Reynolds, Allen Boyer; Barlow Adams, Walter Richardson; Western Union Girl, Lois Weaver; Merrill Feurbach. Lynn C. Garn; Sterling Brown, Edwaid Jackson: Albert Kunody. Robert Andrews; Tommy Arbuckle, Robert Dygert; Charles, John Carver, Henry, Ronald Rose, and Haskell Cummings, Don Fulton. The play dealt with the activities of the two girls, Judy and Fuffy, who through their .scheming and planning to help the family out managed to get a romance started, caused Judy ' s father to lose his job, created the impression that an uncle was an ex-jailbird, and drove the family almost to separation. All was cleared up though when Judy, through no fault of her own got her father a junior part- nership in the firm and all lived happily ever after. Page Forty-seven Junior Play The Junior Class presented the play " Don ' t Take My Penny, " a comedy in three acts, on Monday, December 6. The story revolved about the efforts of Penny Pringle, a movie struck school girl, to get the lead in a new movie, " Stars in Her Hair. " Her devoted chum, Joanna, was concerned only with Penny ' s welfare. Also interested in the movie part was Sally, a former child actress, who posed as a maid in the Pringle household. Kerry, Penny ' s long suffering boy-friend, and his pal, Greg, attempted to turn Penny ' s attention to the coming tennis tournament. How they, with the help of Penny ' s grandmother managed and at the same time solved the trouble of the other members of the family, provided the fast moving plot of the play. The cast was: Sally, a maid with a purpose, Mary Elizabeth Kyle; Norman Porter, a publicity man, Raymond Kiess; Penny, a pretty Httle maid. Donna Zimmer; Caleb, ' her absorbed father, Roland Hughes; her farm minded brother. Dean Dygert; Mavis, her attractive sister, Barbara Myers ; Lydn, her busy mother, Martha Warren ; Joanna, ' her loyal girl friend, Delia Fisher; Kerry, her resourceful boyfriend, William Van Wagner; Greg , his pal with ideas, James Troyer; Gram, just herself, Trois Wagner; Mousieur Henri, a French designer, Don Brooks ; Claire, Elsie, and Lucile, pretty young models. Sue Sims, Noreen Wells, Mary Lou Martin; Red, a delivery boy, Ronald Jackson; Harrison Day, a young author, Carlos Randolph. The play was a big success and enjoyed by all. It drew an enthusiastic audience. The play was under the good direction of Russell F. Handy and the music before the play and between the acts was provided by the Angola High School band under the direction of Miss Mary Catherine Lippincott.

" Previous to 1934 all the printing had been done at the printing office but from then on the paper has been mimeographed at school. The next year, 1935, the name was changed to " The Hornet " and has remained the same since then. The course in journahsm is t.uight to give students experience in interviewing people and in writing articles for publication. In addition to publishing " The Hornet, " the journtlism students write all the articles for the column of " Angola School Notes " in the Steuben Republican. The Hornet usually appears each month with a bright and different colored cover and with lots of news and jokes. Until this year " The Hornet " staff was composed of juniors and seniors of the student body, but this year it was composed of four sophomores, three juniors, and two seniors. In February a tournament edition of " The Hornet " was published by members of the sophomore class. On the cover appeared pictures of the varsitj ' squad and Reserve team. The issue contained basketball news of all kinds. Each year " The Hornet " staff tries to vary the issues and make th;m a little better than the preceding ones. May the future Hornets continue to measure up to the standard set in the past! Miss Shultz was the faculty adviser of the publication.

For angels love to sing. I want to be a senior And never do a thing. TUNE SONNY BOY When there are translations I don ' t mind the translations You ' ll pull me through My Pony . Caesar may lose a battle Let him lose a battle I ' ll depend on you, My Pony. You come from the angels And I know your worth You ' ve made my Latin The easiest thing on earth And then the teacher suspected Took vou away from me, I need you m, My Pony. ■ ■ MEDITATIONS OF A SENIOR Now that I ' m a Senior I have that carefree way; I look down upon the others. And always have my say. My chest has grown three indies; My hat ' s too small for me; I walk to school all ego. As if owning all I see. Juniors are naught but silly. Sophs but skin and bones, Freshies are nothing at all, Numerous as pebbles and stones. I should be addressed as Mister, And not as Jack or Jim, For you sec that I ' m a Senior The cream and not the skim. Seniors to right of us, Seniors to left of us, Seniors in front of us. Hurrah for the Seniors!

Mr. Handy (very angry) : " Not a person in this class wi!! be given liberty this afternoon. " ' Voice: " Give me liberty or give me death. " Mr. Handy: " Who said that? " Voice: " Patrick Henry. " Did you ever wonder whether Mr. Handy knew what all those big words are he uses? A pedestrian is a man who has a son in high school. " Guess I ' ve another pupil, " said the professor, as his glass eye rolled down the hall. Miss ShultE: " Any questions? " Freshie: Yes, what class is this? " If all the students who sleep in school were placed end to end, they would be much more comfortable. " You must find bookkeeping a tiresome course. " " Oh, I get exerci. e running up the columns. " Desperate Senior: ' Who will shoot me a nickel.- ' " Freshie: " I ' ll shoot Mr. Certain. " Senior: " Here ' s a dollar. Go shoot the faculty. " I ' d have taken that girl to a bascketball game if she hadn ' t said something. " ■ Wh.« did she say? " " She said, ' no ' ' " He who knows not and knows he knows not is a freshman — Teach him.
