WENDELL DYGERT Wc, the Senior Class of 1947, u ' ish to dedi- cate our aniiuaJ to Mr. Dygerf, our former class sponsor, who so successfully guided us through our first three years in high school. At this time we want to express our gratitude and tell you, Mr. Dygert we think you ' re grand. Page Four Ut apAx eclatlo In appreciation of his helpful- ness and the interest he has taken in us, ive the Senior Class of 1947, wish to thank Mr. Rose for taking over our sponsorship during our last year of high school. T y vSL Miss Shultz has gone about her duties on the annual unnoticed year after year. We decided to take this opportunity to thank her for all of her swell ideas and unineasurable it ' ork. Without her co-operation and help we realize it would be impos- sible to tackle a year-book. Page Five " Ob, give me something to remember you by! " Our school has done jusf that. We have fond friendships, few sorrous and many happy moments. Our school has contributed to help us and our community. May we go out and prac- tice ivhat ivc have learned. Page Six 044 1 tecuUije U. For the past four years we have been ably assisted by our facility, the life center of school. Through the adminis- tration we have enjoyed the benefits of a very successful curriculum. 644, efUnten(lte4it Military men have found that the best marksmen come from among boys who have been reared in the open country. One of the factors accounting for this is that these boys are accustomed to viewing objects at con- siderable distances. It is equally true that those young people who most consistently register " bull ' s eyes " in life are those who keep an eye on the distant future; who are concerned not only with what they are doing tonight, to- morrow, and next week, but also with what they hope to be doing in five 3 ' ears, ten years, twenty-five years hence. Why not cultivate " far sightedness " in life? — -John L. Estrich. John L. tsTRicH fl Utclfli cd I listened to a man give a very short impromptu speech this evening. He had missed several meetings of his Club — he ' d been in a hospital. But he was cheerful and grateful because he ' d been remembered while away. He concluded by saying — " And I want to attend regularly because I wish to be of service to others. " It impressed me. I talked with a boy today, in a friendly sort of way. He had a problem. The solu- tion? " Do a little more for others than you ' re expected to do. It ' ll work wonders. " This idea of service for others must more and more permeate our daily living if life is to have purpose and meaning in this materialistic age. I sincerely believe this ideal is a big motivating factor in the lives of the people who make up Angola High School. It is evidenced repeatedly in " a day at school. " — C. H. EWioH C. H. Elliott Vage Eight i-aoAci ojf eJULcatioit We, the senior class, wish to extend our sincere thanks to the mem- bers of the Board of Education for the help they have given in forming the general school policies. We appreciate the need for an efficient school organization. CORNEAL R. BRAXTON Mr. Br.itton is the presi- dent of the Angola Bo.ird of Educition. He h.is served faithfully for the past six years. As the executive head, he presides over all monthly meetings. When he is not at work on the board, Mr. Brat- ton may be found as manager of Golden ' s Garage. HAROLD STEVENS Mr. Stevens is the new-, est board member. This is his first year and he is secretary of the organization. He keeps all the records of the meet- ings and handles all the cor- respondence. " Steve " is pro- prietor of the Lakeland Radio Shop.

There are many people that are necessary fcr the smooth running of the pubhc schools. The most important group is the faculty. The grade teachers help the children learn the elements of arithmetic, English and science. The high school teachers prepare the students for their future lives in college, in business, and in the home. The custodians keep cur school building clean. Thev help to surround us with the right atmosphere for study. Ralph Freed joined the staff last March. We could not get along without the cooks. The) ' prepare well balanced meals for the students who are not able to go home for their lunches. Nor do we forget the friendly Police Officer Purdon in front of the building. 1 " " We wish to pay tribute here to the memory of Theodore Hopkins, police chief, who endeared himself to the pupils of the Angola schools while he for two years guarded their safet} ' in crossing Wayne Street in front of the building. As his efforts were untiring, so our fond memory of him will be everlastijag. Vern Easterday Ray Freeman Fiarry Sowle Mrs. Wm. Kunkel Mrs. Chas.

Page Twenty-one ilte dyUffufUt li ne sjcUeJt This is the story of one of the most famous groups of explorers that ever set out to chmb the mount of education in the Angola Schools. CHAPTER I It was a tired but happy group which assembled at the base of High School Mount. A census of the population of the Eighth Grade community showed that 54 boys and girls had successfully explored Grade School Valley and were ready to attempt to scale Mount High School. CHAPTER II At the first landing, called Freshman Inn, on the long ascent of Mount High School there were 62 boys and girls in the party. It was here that they picked up Mr. Dygert as an adviser to the group. His aid proved valuable and under his guidance the group made steady progress toward the top. The ascent was carried on in a scientific and educational manner. The group was given periodical tests to determine their ability to continue the climb. It was here the individuals found they had to stand on their own two feet. CHAPTER III When our group arrived at the overnight place called Sophomore Lodge, there were 60 members in the party. The air became too thin for some of the group and they dropped out along the way, but the party was joined by members from other expedi- tions. It was here that our group lost Catherine Combs, Matthew Crooks, Fred Nelson, Ralph Northup, Margaret Owens, Roger Parsell, Carlton Rinehart, Kathr ' n Randol and gained Peggy Fletter, Joan Kundard, Douglas Cox, Dean Luke, DeWayne Richmond, Laurel Richmond, Don Sell and Carolyn Bush. CHAPTER IV When the group came to rest on a platform known as Junior Paradise, they could see the summit ahead. It was during this resting period they gave their Junior Play, held their Junior-Senior Banquet, and attended the May Dance. When the group was ready to journey on, they left behind Dick Barnes, Leonard Bloomfield, Joyce Cox, Edyth Gilbert, Mary Preston, Donnalee Stage, and Dean Luke. They took on additional mem- bers who were Loren Heckler, Red Loomis, Dale McClellan, Leonard Mitzman, and JoAnn Tribby. CHAPTER V The climbers were on the last lap of their four year climb now. They took with them new members Gearld Pearson, Margaret Owens, Bette Griffin, Kathryn Doudt, and Mr. Rose as adviser, and dropped a few of the veterans by the wayside. They were our sponsor, Mr. Dygert, Bud Jones, Loren Heckler, Patricia Lampman, Mary Lou Wolfe, Carolyn Bush, and Ronald Wells. The climb became more steep now and the Vage Twenty-two Fii-st niw; First grade — Cluiek Sheets, Dick Fiomero, Ed Jackson, Patsy Cremean, Crystal Parrisli, Margaret Owens, Leonard Ott, Barbara Bratton.

Numerous times the group stopped and took mental survey of their position before they reached the summit. As a reward for the accomphshments of the brave group who had spent twelve years in educational exploration, the Angola High School held a public program and each member of the exploration received a high school diploma. As the group basked in the glory of their accomplishments they looked toward the future and new summits to attain. —BILLY WARREN, Jr. Page Tivciity-tlxree tUz itoAA. Would you like to know what is in the future for the Class of ' 47? Well, wonder no longer for having consulted the stars, moon, and a few comets for good measure, we feel that we have mastered astrology and can give you a first class report on the future. Let ' s take a look into the year 1957! Of course, the first place that takes our atten- tion is Angola, which is really booming since Don Sell started an automobile factory nearby. He is aided by his private secretary, Angela Foutz. " Sell ' s Mighty Midgets " have outsold every other car on the market. Shirlee Allen is also interested in cars; she is making a fortune buying and selling antique models. Another addition to the city is a beauty salon. The El Pompador, owned by Lois Leman and Rose Marie Ashley. Patsy Cremean, Crystal Parrish, and Kate Doudt are also living in Angola. Patsy decor- ates windows at the Golden Garage; Crystal teaches bookkeeping in high school in place of " Pop " ; and Kate is the future house mother of Alpha Lambda Tau Fraternity. At Tri-State we find Lee Sutton coaching basketball and football. Corky Johnson is busy designing a new skyscraper, even larger than the Hotel Hendry. It will be used for a radio station. A correspondence school has sprung up in Angola also. It is being conducted by Jim Neukam and DeWayne Richmond, and their main course is " How to Make Atomic Bombs in Ten Easy Lessons. " Many things will be happening in the areas surrounding Angola. In Flint, Joan Kundard and Barbara Sanders are starting an exclusive school for girls. Patty Harman has set up a series of ice cream stands from Angola to Coldwater. In Coldwater Margaret Owens and Lorna Waite are conducting a date bureau for the convenience of Angola girls who wish to spend their spare time in that city. Burton Whitlock is competing for the championship of the 100-meter dash in the Olympic Games which will be held in Pleasant Lake this year. Another sports event of the year will occur when the ZoUner Pistons of whom Ed Jackson is the captain, will play the Angola Hornets. Looking in on our nation ' s capital we find quite a few of the members of our class. We find Congressman Laurel Richmond being criticized for monopolizing the debates in the Senate. Dale McClellan is Secretary of the Navy under the new RepubUcan pres- ident, Andy Emerson. Clifton Nilson, who is Secretary of the Treasury, has announced that he has secured the advice of Carolyn Bender, mathematics expert, on how to lower the national debt. Turning our attention to New York we find Mac Arnold playing the part of the wolf in the Broadway production, " Little Red Riding Hood. " Willa Mae Sutton is the Pa e Twenty-jour « • hair dresser of the famous dramatic star, Peg Fletter, who is also starred on Broadway. In one of the large New York radio stations we find Betty Feagler as a featured " Boogie Woogie " pianist on Betty Miller ' s radio program. Betty Miller is the successor to Joan Davis. Bob Williamson is putting his talents to use as an auctioneer for the American Tobacco Company on " Your Hit Parade. " In the newspaper world we find Red Loomis editor of the sports section of The New York Times. Jean Miller and Harriet Rose are also in New York. They are preparing a sequel to their best seller, Adiice On Married Life. Bill Lemley practices medicine on swanky Fifth Avenue. He says his beautiful lady patients declare him the greatest medico that ever held their hands — to take their pulses! In Chicago Bill Warren and Jerry Pearson are running a Super Grocery and Meat Market. All their products are grown especially for them at a huge farm in California owned by Dick Shank. The products are shipped to Chicago by an airplane piloted by Dick Romero who is employed by the American Transport Co. Bob Walter is also in Chicago. He is the manager of the shoe department of Sears, Roebuck and Co. In Hollywood Barbara Bratton is playing in the movies opposite Roy Rogers. Their latest picture is " The Wolves of ' 57. " Ben Weldon is competing with Harry James on the trumpet. A movie short is being made by Jean Boyer and Bette Griffin demonstra- ting the powers of mental telepathy. Doris Kyle and Donna Stevens are great artists working for Walt Disney. Some of the members of our class are not settled in any one place. Leonard Mitz- man is gaining fame as a Russian dancer. He has appeared in Paris, Moscow, London, and other capitals of the world. Chuck Sheets and Leonard Ott are singing salesmen going from house to house sellng Ott and Sheets ' Perky Pink Pills. Junior Ewers is preparing to make a trip around the world on a motorcycle run by jet-propulsion. LaVerne Easterday is taking a trip to Alaska in a new Pontiac and Bonnie Kessler, cap- tain of the world ' s greatest women ' s basketball team, is traveling through the United ' States with the other members on an exhibition tour. Well, that ' s what the stars say, and if it doesn ' t happen, blame them, not us. — xMARILYN SERVIS GRETA BODIE Page Tuenty-five lait aUU We, the Class of ' 47 of Angola High School, situated in the city of Angola, in the county of Steuben, in the state of Indiana, being in an unusually sound state of mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this our last will and testament, leaving our cherished possessions, which we have accvimulated during our four years of high school, to the underclassmen and faculty.

Sigucd: THE SENIOR CLASS fcr: Forrest Lionel Johnson Jr. fagc T unity -seven {MueJUctoA OUR FUTURE Youth has always looked forward to the future. Children of four and five are always eager to enter elementary school. Tomorrow holds for them a brilliant future. Their thoughts, though they cover a comparatively short period of time, are very important. It is then that they first form a basis of personality and may I say — their future? Elementary school is a training period. Through classes in the grades a student learns to study, to be attentive and most miportant of all — to plan. What the student learns here adds to his personality. His attitude toward school, gained in the grades, will mainly determine his scholastic ability and record in high school. Our high school training will undoubtedly play a great part in our future. The greatest single factor which determines one ' s personality is perhaps his association with others. He learns from this association in high school. By the time a student graduates he has positively formed the basis of his future. From high school we have learned many things. The ability to work with others comes from the athletic program. The ability to work alone and rely upon one ' s self comes from the various courses studied. These two abilities are very important. Students have learned them in varied degree according to their aptitudes. This, in turn, is a determining factor in our future. There are many factors which should be considered. The training received at home is vitally important. This is influenced almost entirely by the parents. I do not believe that this can be overstressed. The religious aspect is another very ' important, and too often overlooked, part of our education. These three parts of our preparation form a triangle, personality, formal education, and home training combined with religious training. Like a triangle, the whole is dependent upon the completion of all its parts. Today we are skeptical; yesterday we were eager. What does tomorrow hold for us? For many it holds success, happiness, prominence, and all of the good things of life. As we approach our graduation we realize how large and formidable the world really is. It is, today, in a very unstable condition. It has not yet recovered from the ravages of war, starvation, and inflation. Even after many years these memories will live on. All of these thoughts lead us to wonder just what the future holds for us. Perhaps life will be a bed of roses; more than likely, however, the roses will also bear thorns. We must take these troubles in our stride. When our parents were graduated from high school, the world was in a worse state than it is today. They were undoubtedly full of perplexity and wonder. From them we gain encouragement. We feel that the conditiorr-of the world has never been so bad that it could not have become worse, nor has it ever been so good that it could not have improved. Nevertheless, the world has always held a future for youth. Shall we live in pomposity or in necessity? That is entirely up to the student. May we remember Henley ' s famous lines: " I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul. " I am convinced that our future shall be what we make it. —DALE McCLELLAN fage Twenty-eight 6 cdutata EDUCATION, A NECESSITY FOR DEMOCRACY We, the senior class of the year nineteen hundred forty-seven, are about to step out into a new world. We have spent the previous twelve years of our lives in school, gain- ing an education. It is said that an education is needed by our future citizens to prepare them for the way of life in a democracy. One may ask, " Just what do you mean by the word, education? " The dictionary gives the definition: EducaLion is the knowledge and abilities gain- ed through the training of the moral and intellectual faculties. This definition has a broader meaning, however, and it may be expanded to meet the needs of our present day society. This does not mean that schooling alone will impart knowledge; it means that one must have constant practice in applying what he has been taught. The war that has been fought and won in the last few years is finished as far as the actual hostilities are concerned. But this is only the first part of the great task that faces us today and there are many lessons yet to be learned. We must now try to secure an everlasting peace for the whole world. This may sound like a note of optimism, but peace can be obtained on one condition. That is, if the people of the world are educated sufficiently to understand their own needs. An educated man must have an open mind; he must be willing to listen to reason; and he must act with confidence in himself. This doesn ' t mean he is gullible and accepts the first argument that sounds as if it could possibly work, but he collects all the facts, weighs them with the utmost care; then, and only then, he comes forth with an intel- ligent decision that will benefit all concerned. In a democracy there is no room for prejudice. Prejudice is an emotion, not the result of right education. It causes blindness to the facts, and the results of such blind- ness may bring hardships to untold numbers of innocent people. Racial prejudice and political prejudice are two of the greatest enemies of democracy. They can not be over- looked, for they are not matters that will right themselves if they are left alone. We must make studies and then effect compromises which, if carefully planned and carried out, will bring satisfactory results to all. The right to vote is a weapon of democracy, although it is often abused by ignor- ance. People can be persuaded to change their vote if the promise or reward is big enough to justify the means. If people will do their own thinking, they are using their education to the best advantage. But if they listen to only one side of the story and guide their acts by emotions, they are throwing away education and its advantages. Some of us are planning to go on to college after graduating, in order to gain technical knowledge for our future jobs. This additional training that we will receive will better equip us to take our place in society and be useful to our associates. Education does not stop when the schooling stops; it continues through life. If a person will keep his mind clear and be alert to his surroundings, he will learn some- thing new every day. Education is part of the process of growing up and one ' s mind can be constantly improved if the individual himself really has the will to learn. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Albert Einstein are all examples of well educated men. They were all specialists in different fields, but each, in his own way, gave something to the world. We can ' t all be as great as these men, but by educating ourselves to the best of our ability, we can be worthy of our great democracy. —BILL LEMLEY ' Pave TiLcnty-nine Top row: Angela Foutz, Shirlee Allen, Jean Killer, Rose Marie Ashley, Don Sell.

It ivould be impossible for us to hare a day at school without our team. IHHBfefe. r " mil ei Uo-n,i e.ti 1 -PHIL HULL — Junior — Phil was the rebounder on the team; though not very tall, he made a competent center because of his aggressiveness and fight. He was one of the leading scorers on the team and should be hard to stop next year. DEAN SUTTON— ; « or— " Deanie " was the tallest member of the Hornet squad and proved mighty handy at the forward position helping Phil rebound. Deanie had a great one hand shot that was hard to stop, which netted him the honor of second highest scorer on the team. BRICE CLARK— ; ;7ror—Bnce led the Hornets in scoring this year. Brice, though small, was very fast and had a good push shot. Brice will long be remembered for his 2 3 -point scoring splurge against Concordia. MAC ARNOLD — Senior — Mac was the steadying in- fluence on the Hornet attack. He was captain most of the games and handled the team in a stern but commendable way. He was always in the thick of the fray and has many good games to his credit. ED JACKSON — Senior — Ed was another hard driv- ing guard who was plenty fast and a value to any team. Ed had many good games this year. Ed was a good defense man and a scrapper all the way. He will be hard to replace. ROD ROALERO — Senior — Rod was another big boy on the Hornet squad. Rod was usually sent into the game when Phil wasn ' t going well, and he gave several good relief roles. He was big and hard to keep off the back- boards; he would be an asset to any team. WOODIE DYGERT — Junior — Woodie is probably the most improved player on the Hornet squad. He ad- vanced from a sub en the " B " team during his Sophomore year to a prominent role on the Varsity. Woodie isn ' t as much the offensive type of player as he is the feeding and rebounding type. LEE SUTTON — Senior — Lee has the most dangerous long shot on the team and also was a great free throw artist. He had his best game against Fremont, scoring eleven points in the Hornet 59-29 win. JOE DOUGLASS — Sophomore — Joe started the sea- son on the " B " team, but was soon promoted to the Var- sity. Joe played some good ball until he was injured in an automobile accident which put him out for the duration of the season. As he is only a Sophomore much will be ex- pected of him in future years. JOHN ELLIOTT — Junior — Johnnie, though very small, is fast, and possesses a good basket eye. We look for- ward to seeing him play next year. BILL LEMLEY — Senior — Bill was a dependable, con- sistent reserve who was ready for action any time and whose cooperative spirit will be greatly missed. JUNIOR EWERS — Senior — " Breezie " was another tall boy who helped out a great deal. He played forward. He also was injured in an automobile accident and was forced to quit in mid-season. Page Forty-two tke 6 20 04 ii n.e4Mje4AJ- The season ' s record of seven wins and twelve losses included wins over LaGrange, Fremont, Garrett, Howe Military, Avilla, and Salem Center and losses to such fxjwers as Auburn, Kendallville, Fort Wayne Con- cordia, Waterloo, Coldwater, and Garrett. And yet with their poor record the Fiornets outscored their opponents over the season. The Fiornets compiled a total of 745 points to their opponents total of 697. The first four games were at home with some of the toughest competition th; Fior- nets had to face all season. Kendallville, who won their sectional and had a season record of 18 and 3, was first and they handed the local five a .3 2-2 5 defeat. Waterloo eked out a close 3 3-32 decision in the second en- counter. Concordia handed the Fiornets their third straight loss but only after a free-scoring battle, 65-52. Auburn was the last of the first four home battles and the Red Devils finally won out 47-43 after hav- ing the Fiornets down 18-6 shortly after the beginning of the second quarter. The Fiornets then hit the road to de- feat LaGrange 6 5-29. Garrett came here to absorb a 34-32 licking. Back on the road the Fiornets lost to Butler 37-34 but won at Fremont 59-29 in their best display of of- fense and defense. Still on the road the Fior- nets placed Fiowe Miltar ' on their list of victims, 33-30 but lost to Garrett 41-40. Fremont caine here and was beaten 43- 3 0. The Fiornets traveled to Waterloo and were beaten a second time 41-32 at the hands of the Wildcats. Then came the big upset of the season as Salem Center caught the Fiornets on their heels and beat them 30-21. Avilla was next to be defeated 43-39 here. The Hornets then traveled to Cold- water to lose 49-42. Butler and Berne closed out the regular season schedule in the local gymnasium and both came out victorious. Butler won 40-3 5 and Berne 3 5-33. Coach Emer - Druckamiller closed a highly successful coaching career dturing the 1946-7 season. " Druck " " was promoted to the athletic directorship after twenty-one years as a mentor. This includes five years at Tri-State College, two years at Syracuse, and fourteen here at A. H. S. His overall record for high school was 260 victories against 120 defeats for a .684 percentage. This includes thirteen county championships, three sectional wins and nine times in the finals of the sectional. Members of the squad will not forget the grand work of our cheerleaders. Chuck Sheets and Mary Ellen Red- ding. They could be depended on for a real boost when the chips were down. Chuck was in his second year as a cheer- leader; Mary Ellen was enjoy- ing her first in the honored position. Top ntw: Eugene Eastercla " , .Joe Beck, Fi-ed Romero.

Its name was changed again in 1934 to " The Spectator, " and in 193 5 ' it was called " The Hornet. " The front and back covers of The Hornet this year were printed by the Steuben Printing Company. They had pictures of some of the school organizations, as the music groups, the first and reserve teams, cheer leaders, and action pictures of the games. The first issue had a picture of the school building on the front cover. The inside pages of the paper were mimeographed here at school. One of the outstanding issues of the year was the Christmas issue. The fronts of the paper were done by the art classes, under the direction of D. C. Brown. The cover picture showed the shepherds pointing to the star. The back cover pictured the activities of the art department. The course in journahsm gives the students experience in writing. As well as pubhshing The Hornet, they wrote articles for the " School Notes " in The Steuben Republican. This year ' s journalism class consisted of twelve members, seven seniors, three juniors, and two sophomores. The work in the journalism department is under the supervision of Miss Shultz.

Vagc Fifty- five ' ' 6ia(fe cloo4. rr " Stage Door, " a comedy in three acts by Edna Ferber and George Kauffman, was presented by the senior class on Thursday and Friday evenings, March 17 and 28. The action takes place in the Foot Lights Club, somewhere in the West Fifties in New York City, and the story deals with the girls who live there and their friends. The ambition of every girl there is to become an actress, and many are the appli- cations at all the casting offices, which the girls visit daily. Sometimes the girls are given minor parts and the shows fold up within a week, or parts as understudies, with the leading actresses never becoming ill. Pat Devine gets a job as a night club entertainer. Terry Randall gives recipes on a radio program and later resorts to selling blouses at Macey ' s. The life of Kaye Hamilton ends in tragedy because of no work and accumulated debts. Jean Maitland is offered a part m a moving picture and goes to Hollywood. She returns a year later to appear on Broadway and as she is followed by reporters and cameramen, she is lionized by the girls at the Club. Much of the interest is centered upon Terry Randall, who admires a young play- wright, Keith Burgess, and helps him write a play. He secures a producer who refuses to hire Terry to play the leading role. Keith later succumbs to the demands of Holly- wood. Terry is also offered work in moving pictures by a producer, David Kingsley, but he gives her his personal advice to remain true to the legitimate stage. Later Mr. Kingsly brings another producer, Adolph Gretzl, to the Footlights Club to have Terry try out for a part. He declares her incompetent, but David buys the play from him and secures Terry for both his leading lady and his bride.

The costumes were verj ' colorful. Much credit for the success of the play should also go to the stage crew and Vern Easterday and to the students who worked on committees. The complete production was under the skillful direcction of Charles Edwin Shank. fagc Fifty-six a daie uaUU JMflLf rr " A Date With Judy, " a three-act comedy, was presented by the junior class on February 5 and 6, to very appreciative audiences.

It is under the leadership of its president, Marilyn Kling. She is assisted by vice president, Bonnie Kessler. The gals that keep the records are Jean Boyer, the recording secretary, and Denie Corner, the corresponding secretary. Pat Harman is the banker. Miss Rees, the physical education teacher, is the sponsor and executive head of the or- ganization. You have all heard the old adage, " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. " The same thing holds true for Jill. The Girls ' Athletic Association provides such games as basketball, baseball, volley ball, and many other sports. Every Friday night from 4 till S o ' clock you can hear strange noises (squeals, shrieks, ohs, and yells) in the gym. Yes, if you would investigate, you would find the girls in the midst of an exciting game. They also have tobogganing parties, skating parties, and other outside entertainment. The girls have a business meeting once a month. The purpose of the organization is to stimuate the girls ' interests in variuos sports, to promote good sportsmanship and cooperation, and to develop character and ability. Membership is open to all high school girls. The organization must abide by laws of the National Girls ' Athletic Association concerning the point system, awards, and the constitution, but the members of the local organizations choose their own sports and the amount of dues to be paid.

Estrich an- nounces the close of his years of service in the Angola public schools. Dviring his admin- istration many important developments in the school property and the entire school system have occurred. Mr. Estrich came to Angola as a teacher of mathematics and science in 1920 and became high school principal in 1921. He succeeded Heyman Allman as superintendent in 1924. Outstanding in the physical development of the Angola Schools during his admin- istration was the construction of the present splendid school building. It was erected in 193 2. With the increased facilities came the transfer of all pupils from Pleasant Town- ship and an increased teaching staff. During Mr. Estrich ' s administration the Hi-Y club was established in 1922 and the Girl Reserves, now the Y-Teens, in 1926. These clubs have accomplished much in developing finer qualities among the students who have belonged to them. The high school activities accounting system, a combined school finance plan for societies and activities engaged in by the students was inaugurated by Mr. Estrich. A system similar to that later was adopted by the state throughout the schools generally. Improvements in the playgrounds and the acquisition of additional grounds east of the building, now being conditioned for the use of the pupils, have been outstanding accomplishments. Also of great significance, 1200 young people have been graduated from the schools during Mr. Estrich ' s administration. The school and the community owe much to the untiring efforts of our faithful superintendent. The students will also greatly miss the services of Mr. Handy, history and biology instructor; Mr. Rose, mathematics; and Miss Lippincott, vocal music.
