We, the Class of ' 56, have been greatly helped by this reading material, and so in our memories ice shall cherish the Public Library across the street. 1 J.»PJMi Owl tjifmnaAwm, We have passed through these gym doors many times during our high school years. We remember the many times we cheered our team on to victory and held our heads proudly even in defeat; we remember the classes in physical education and the many games which we played so hard; we remember the sock hops when we danced to the music of records played over the public address system. These memories will be with ns throughout our lives. ,§mtr 3 0i w ijoL Through the keyhole of our yearbook ue present to our readers a year at A. H. S.

We, the Senior Class of 1956, ivish to express our sincere appreci- ation for the efforts of Miss Eunice Reed, our sponsor, and Fred Philipp, our president, who with patience, tact, and unfailing good humor have guided our class through four years of high school. They were always there with a helping hand and a cheerful word when prospects looked bleak and were the first to give us a word of com- mendation when things were bright.

We were proud of ourselves and we hoped to make a suc- cess of our four years of high school. In our sophomore year we were getting better acquainted with the other students and we took part in many different activities. Our junior year was a great credit to us. We presented our junior play, " Ghost Wanted, " which was a great success. We received a plaque for topping the previous record in magazine sales Our Junior-Senior Banquet was a never-to-be-forgotten af- fair, with all the rustling formals, the gala colored decorations, and the Eiffel Tower earning out the Paris theme. And then we were seniors! It was a marvelous year! We began with the senior play, " George Washington Slept Here. " Our patriotic program was a thrilling ex- perience for all of us. We had a marvelous senior trip to New York City. A very pleasant memory for us was the Junior-Senior Banquet. Then it was time for bac- calaureate and commencement. We walked across the stage to receive our diplomas with mixed emotions, as this was good-bye. We were ready to take our places in the world. We had been well prepared for the future by our teachers, parents and friends. The memories of our twelve years of school will remain in our minds and hearts for- ever. —ANITA McCLELLAN SHARRON COFFMAN MARILYN KOCH Page Thirty Jhom, J Aj2AkmML Jo S nitfiA.

H. S. It con- tains news, feature stories, editorials, exchanges, gossip, jokes, sports and other interesting materi- al. Its existence goes back to 19 IS, when it was called " The Key " as well as the yearbook. In 1934 it was renamed " The Spectator, " a title which lasted only one year. The name " The Hornet " was suggested by Mr. Druckamiller in a contest the next year, and so the paper has been called since then. In 1949 " The Hornet " staff was admitted to membership in the Quill and Scroll, the Inter- national Honor Society for High School Journal- ists. The members of the staff also belong to the National Scholastic Press Association. The members of the staff this year included: Editor-in-chief, JoAnne Ulmer; associate editor, Kay Fry; business manager, Jane Brokaw; art editor, Nancy Stevens; sports editor, John Maloy; exchanges, Arleen Kaylor; news writers, Lois Lonsbury, Bob Andrew, Mac Mclntyre; feature writers, Carol Wilsey, Mary Nelson, Marilyn Koch; posters, Sharron Coffman and Sandra Leatherman.

The Angola chapter is a member of the state and nation- al organizations and is a branch of the Y. W. C. A. Our ideals are well stated in our slogan, " To find and give the best is our purpose true, earnest, hon- est, and our slogan — to face life squarely too. " We met every other Monday after school in the Study Hall. Any girl who had attained the rank of sophomore was eligible to join. A wonderful Y-Teen year was enjoyed by all members. The sock hop which we held in the gym- nasium was a huge success. In November a student from Tri-State College came to speak to us about his native land, India, and later we gave a program at the County Old People ' s Home. On December 23, we sponsored the annual Christmas Prom, " Crys- tal Fantasy, " with the Hi-Y. The school elected Gary Griffith as " King Cris " to reign over the dance. In January we held a Friendship Tea for the Fremont Tri Hi-Y. In February Helen Seidel came and spoke to us on the meaning of Y-Teens. In April the Pa- Ma-Me Banquet was given by the Y-Teens and Hi-Y. The officers for the year were: President, Nancy Stevens; vice-president and membership chairman, Katy MacFadyen; secretary, Kay Creel; treasurer, Mary Jane Hamma; program chairman, Janie Cle- land; social chairmen, Jane Brokaw and Cynthia Willis; service chairmen, Nancy German and Pat Walsh; finance chairman, Sally Snow; song leader, Mary Lou Miller; pianist, Roberta Brokaw; chap- lains, Ellen Wicoff and Jane Brokaw.

" To fulfill this purpose the club participated in the fol- lowing activities during the year: Sent officers to both the fall and spring conferences, sponsored sev- eral charity projects, and held a Pa-Ma-Me banquet with the Y-Teens. The club also sponsored the " WOWO Record Hop, " and with the Y-Teens, the Christmas Prom, " Crystal Fantasy. " The club meets every other Monday afternoon or evening. The meetings are called to order by the president and the Lord ' s Prayer is given in unison. The programs consist of talks by outside speakers, panels, films, and discussions of interest to the mem- bers.

A Meeting in Progress Katy Gives Her Views Vlodwncd. ?Conoi, Sorisdij. One of the highest distinctions which can be given to seniors of Angola High School is to be selected for membership in the National Honor Society. Fifteen per cent of the class are eligible. They are selected from the upper third of the class, ranked according to scholastic records, and chosen by the faculty on the basis of citizenship, service to the school, and character. Those who received the honor this year are Kay Creel, Pete Dick, Katy MacFadyen, Roberta Brokaw, Fred Philipp, Nancy Stevens, Ellen Wicoff, and Cynthia Willis. The officers for the 195 6 group are: President, Cynthia Willis; vice-president, Katy MacFadyen; secretary, Roberta Brokaw. Mr. McCutchan is the treasurer. The local chapter of the National Honor Society was established in 193 5 and the membership is now 2 5 2. A scholastic fund was set up in 1938. Each member contributes one dollar to the fund each year for the first five years he is a member. The money is used in the form of a loan to help send a graduate of Angola High School to college. Pa K e fifty Student founciL The Student Council was organized in 193 2 to promote co-operation between stu- dents and faculty, provide opportunities for student self-direction, foster all worthy school activities, and create and maintain high standards for citizenship.

It is in this group that the parents of the community place their faith that their children will get to and from school safely. With Captain Jim Wyatt and Lieutenant Junior German assigning each member to the post he or she is best fitted for, we can expect the patrol to function smoothly regardless of the weather or anything else that might interfere. D, R. Graham was the patrol supervisor this year. Va e Fifty -two J juhiML J ach AA. of} ChnohkcL The John L. Estrich F. T. A. Club was organized in 1949 for students who have an interest in the teaching profession and think they would like to become teachers. In the club these students have the opportunity to discover whether or not they have the necessary qualifications for successful teaching. They are encouraged to develop such qualities so they may pursue their interests. During the year the members hold meetings on alternate Wednesdays, and the club activities are planned. Student teaching was a service of the club in which members showed their abilities to teach. The club plans an annual tea for the faculty and a campus tour of a favorite college. They sponsor dances and take part in conferences and programs. Officers for the year were: President, Shirley Miller; vice-president, Jane Brokaw: secretary-treasurer, Anne Burns.

After it is fixed up, Newton finds out he needs $5,000 to keep the place. Annabelle Full- er, who didn ' t like the house, sympathizes with Newton and realizes she likes it after all.

In order to meet their son ' s accusations about the lack of unity in the home, Mr. and Mrs. Miller decided to have an old- fashioned family get-together one evening. Their daughter was compelled to break her date with her boy friend, who decided to remain also.

The twirlers are JoAnne Ulmer, Norma Law, Bonnie Page and Sandra Shank. The band played at all home basketball games throughout the year and presented a special Christmas program at the Salem game.

They also completed another year of the weekly summer concert series played in front of the Court House. These concerts have attracted the attention of many summer visitors as well as the local citizens. Because of increased enrollment in Angola High School, the band and the other musical organizations are now in the classification of class BB for the first year. This means that the music the band prepares for contest work must be more difficult. This year ' s District Contest was held in Angola. The selections played for this year ' s con- test included " Symphony in B Flat " by Fauchet-Gillete; " Eroica Overture, " Skorn- lcka; and " March of the Spanish Soldiery, " Smetsky-Fahl. Angola won a superior in the District Contest and an excellent in State competi- tion at Kendallville. They won a superior in sight reading at the state. Page Fifty-nine OAch AihjOL The fastest growing musical organization in Angola High School is the orchestra, now consisting of 37 members. The orchestra performed for several dramatics productions, including both class plays and the three one-act plays. They also received superior ratings in both the Dis- trict and State Contests in the spring of 19 5 5. A superior rating was won this year by the orchestra in the District Contest held at Angola on March 24. The organization won an excellent in the State Contest at Kendallville on April 7. The only orchestra ensemble which will be broken up this year is the string quar- tette composed of: Violins, Mary Lou Miller and Linda Gentry; viola, Cynthia Willis; cello, Karen Brokaw; and string bass, Roberta Brokaw.

Out of the fifty-six members of the class of ' 5 6, twenty-one played in the band. The sen- iors were very active in ensembles, and some of the groups which will be broken up by their graduation include drum en- sembles, a flute trio, woodwind trios, clar- inet quartettes, and various brass ensembles.

VOCAL ENSEMBLES Three vocal ensembles will be broken up this year because of graduating seniors. They are the Boys ' Barbershop Quartette, the Girls ' Barbershop Quartette, and the Senior Girls ' Trio. All of these groups have performed for various meetings, and have entered the Solo and Ensemble Contests. The members in- clude — Boys ' Barbershop Quartette: Dick Geco- wets, Paul DeRosa, Gary Forbes, Mike Erick- Girls ' Barbershop Quartette: Kay Creel, Roberta Brokaw, Mary Lou Miller, Nancy Stevens. Girls ' Trio: Cynthia Willis. Donna Strite, Kay Creel, MUSIC PARENT S ' ORGANIZATION The biggest attractions of the music de- partment this year probably are the new pur- ple robes with reversible collars purchased last spring by the Music Parents ' Organization. This active group consists of the parents of the students in all the music groups of the Angola Schools. This year ' s officers were: President, Clyde McClelland; vice-president, Mrs. Donald Creel; and treasurer, Mrs. Stephen Slanina. The meetings are held on the second Tuesday night of each month. The money earned by the Music Parents from pancake suppers and exhibit night sup- pers is used for Senior Awards, uniforms and contest entry fees. Boys ' Barbershop Quartette Girls ' Barbershop Quartette Girls ' Trio U)Jwwv c Jfau} °$o HIGH SCHOOL ENSEMBLES This year the judging of the Solo and En- semble Contests was much stricter than it has ever been before. Nevertheless, Angola man- aged to send a good percentage of her con- testants to the State Contest at Indianapolis. Sixteen soloists and nine ensembles qualified for state competition, and out of that group eight soloists and four ensembles received su- perior ratings. A new project of the Band Parents ' Or- ganization this year has been the recording of solos and ensembles for use as dinner music for various service clubs and organizations. This project has proven very successful. En- sembles and soloists have also performed in person on the programs of these clubs. TWIRLERS AND DRUM MAJORETTE A colorful addition to our band is our twirlers, Bonnie Page, Sandra Shank, Norma Law, and JoAnne Ulmer. They appeared on the field at the Purdue High School Band Day. They twirled when the band presented a Christmas program at the Salem game, De- cember 16, in our gym. They also took part in other programs and whenever there was an all-band parade. Cynthia Willis has been a faithful drum majorette throughout the year. She led the band in maneuvers at Purdue, at the Christ- mas program in the gym, and in all-band pa- rades. She served as student director for many band selections during the basketball season.

Next they traveled to Con- cordia, where the Cadets ' height was a little too much; the Hornets went down fighting 5 3-44. An- gola had a poor shooting night as they lost a home game to LaGrange 54-46. At Ligonier the Angoli- ans managed a 49-44 victory. Back home again Angola dropped a close 3 7-3 6 decision to Edon in the last minute. Over at Butler the boys had shooting trouble again and were beaten 60-48. Avilla, one of the best teams the Hornets faced, defeated Angola on Angola ' s home court 77- 6 5. A game South Whitley team came from behind to eke out a 68-67 verdict in Angola ' s gym. In the last game before Christmas the Hornets easily whipped Salem Center 81-29. In the holiday tourney at Garrett, the Hornets crushed Fremont 69-5 5, but lost to Garrett in the championship game 64-41. After the holiday break Angola played Garrett again but lost to the tall Railroaders 63-49. Angola made 36 foul shots to defeat Montpelier S6-43. The first of four road games produced one of the sea- son ' s best games as the Hornets beat their long time rivals, the Auburn Red Devils, 61-5S. In an after- noon game on Saturday the boys defeated Berne 60- 56. At New Haven it was a different story as An- gola lost to a tough New Haven team 71-51. Fremont turned back Angola to avenge an earlier defeat, as the Eagles came out on top 76-67. The Hornets put up a good fight, but the Decatur Yellow Jackets downed them 43-39 on the Angola floor. Also on the home floor the Hornets defeated Elmhurst to the tune of 5 9-49. The last game on the regular playing schedule was with Kendallville there and the Hornets won 51-47. The Hornets fought hard but were downed by the Auburn Red Devils 48-44 in the first game of the Sectional at Churubusco. Thus ended the 195 5- 5 6 season. Page Scicnty-sc (fouplcL S.Q.QA. The Bees, who are the future Hornets, gave the fans some exciting games to watch this year and everyone was proud of them. Waterloo defeated them, however, in the first game 40-34 and Concordia dropped them in the sec- ond 47-42. The Bees won the next three, defeating LaGrange in an overtime 34-3 3, and downing Lig- onier 34-29 and Edon, Ohio, 57-22. Butler won the next contest 37-3 5. Angola took the next three defeating Avilla 57-37, South Whitley 44-31, and Salem Center 52-15. Garrett defeated the Bees 49- 45, as did Montpelier 42-37, Auburn 53-29, Berne 46-32 and New Haven 60-3 8. Angola beat Fre- mont 41-34 but lost to Decatur 40-3 5.

In the Track season of 19 5 5 the Hornets showed good promise for future years — the building program is in full swing. Although the Cross Country and Track .un- essentially young sports much credit and recognition is due graduating seniors on both squads. These boys were responsible for some outstanding performances and did a fine job of teaching the underclassmen a good team spirit and a few tricks of the running game.

PAoph a It is the year 2006 A. D. The class of ' 56 have met for their golden reunion. Where? On a rocket ship headed for outer space! We have chosen this place of meeting to prove the faith we hold in our motto, " The higher we rise, the broader the view. " And truly great heights have been reached by many of our classmates. Let ' s take a look around the ship and see some of its occupants. First we must get out our teleceiver, a little gadget by which one may watch anyone within a radius of 100 miles by mere- ly spelling out his name and pressing a button. And who was the inventor of this ingenious device? None other than our own Rex Barton, who first invented it for the sole purpose of keeping an eye on Mar- lene Aldrich. ' And no one could blame him, be- cause Marlene has become the nation ' s leading model, and has been having quite a social life! Among her recent escorts have been Carl Unger, recently voted the world ' s most eligible bachelor, and Dick Gecowets, the newly elected president of the A. S. B. Q. B. L. (American Society of Barbershop Quar- tettes with Bass Lead). As our teleceiver comes into focus we see Fred Philipp, who has united all of the countries of the world into one nation over which he presides. He is discussing lecture points with his chief consultant and campaign manager, Pete Dick, better known as The Golden Throat. Taking notes on this dis- cussion is Fred ' s private secretary, Sally Snow. One of the chief projects completed under Fred ' s ad- ministration has been the total annihilation of ju- venile delinquency in the world. This job was spear- headed by Jane Brokaw, with assistance from Ro- berta Brokaw and Ellen Wicoff, who have cul- tivated the musical interest of the children of the world to such a great extent that they now prefer classical music to bop. What is this that our tele- ceiver is picking up? It ' s a scale model of Fred ' s White House being shown by Kay Creel, who has been assigned the job of redecorating the interior. Also, near by, is Ligia de Oliveira on her way to Mars to learn their language, the only known one which she has not so far mastered. What is this gale of laughter we hear? It ' s coming from none other than the comedy sensation of the world, John Maloy. So far he has replaced Jackie Gleason, George Gobel, and Red Skelton. The reason for this great outburst was a joke strip writ- ten by our own Willy Nelson known as Willy ' s Wows. Glaring at John ' s pleasure is Willy ' s rival creator, Larry Deller, known for Larry ' s Lulus. It has been hinted by Carol Wilsey, the new Lu- ella Parsons, that a law suit is in the making between these two famous joke writers, and that Larry will be represented by the world ' s greatest lawyer, Katy MacFadyen. It is a well known fact that she has never lost an argument. Both of these joke strips are examples of the feature attractions of the Solar Star, the most widely read newspaper in the world. The editor-in-chief is Cynthia Willis, and on her staff are Lois Lonsbury, who writes the love-lorn section, and Mary Nelson, who has been writing many articles in an attempt to revive the song, " Davy Crockett. " Recent headliners in the Solar Star have been Shirley Miller, recently voted the most beautiful school teacher in the world, and Mary Jane Hamma, named the world ' s most effi- cient school principal. Also headlining has been Kay Fry, the outstanding WAC of the year. Oh, what is this? A flaming meteor appears! It ' s heading for the ship! To the rescue! Richard McIntyre, Eddie Klink, and Ned Fifer sound their " charge " yell, for which they have become famous. They have been hired by some of the world ' s greatest race horse owners. The greatest of these owners, who puts complete faith in this charm, is none other than Marilyn Koch, who together with Sandra Leatherman and Sharron Coffman runs the greatest horse and pony farm in the world. Sharron ' s job is to groom the horse and pony tails, and she has created many new styles in this field. Sitting next to Marilyn is her neighbor, Bob An- Pa%e Eighty-four tfla A. (p wpdt a drew. Together with Mike Hantz and Eldon Gurtner he has developed the first farm completely mechanized by robots. Jim Taylor and John Book helped to weld these robots. We next direct our teleceiver in the direction of our classmates who have gone into medical fields. First we find Dr. Ronald Steenerson looking over his dentist journals. He is believed to be the first completely painless dentist, but we know his secret. When the patients enter his office, he treats them to a dish of " rocket royal delight, " created by the great food specialists, Doreatha Carpenter and Arleen Kaylor. After eating this out-of-this world treat, the patients are able to remember only the pleasant thoughts for a period long enough for Dr. Steenerson to perform the necessary task. There are three other class members who have become suc- cessful in the field of medicine. Susie Caris and Rosemary Lower have become nurses, and at the present time are working in Lue Anne Eff ' s new million dollar nursing home. We now focus our teleceiver on Tim Culver, another classmate of whom we are very proud. While mixing prescriptions in his drug store, Tim came upon the sceret of Dr. Jekyll. He is now work- ing on a method of controlling his discovery with the aid of Ned Cook, who is serving as his guinea pig. Sitting next to Tim is Don Waite, who has recently taken over Crooked Lake for the develop- ment of promising young athletes. Our teleceiver is momentarily blanked out while we stop to let John Weiss off at the moon. Here he plans to gain positive proof for his theory that this satellite really is basically made up of cheese. After a refill at one of the stations in Lee Schaeffer ' s chain of overhaul space ports, we are off to Mars! Here we must leave off Mary Barlett, who will be the first missionary to try to convert the Marsmen, and Ligia. We shall also pick up an- other passenger, Kenny Do well. Kenny has found a satellite near Mars which closely resembles an is- land in the South Pacific, and here he lives in com- plete luxury. What is this commotion in a corner of the lounge? It seems that the tremendous gravitational pull of the moon on our takeoff has caused one of our more delicate passengers to faint. Donna Strite, our space ship stewardess, appears on the scene to aid Pat Walsh, the second Amy Vander- built. Quick! Help her into one of the contour chairs invented by Alan Waltenberger. We find that Alan has introduced these chairs into the school rooms of the world. Standing around Miss Walsh we find JoAnne Ulmer, the leading wed- ding consultant, and Mary Lou Miller, famed Metropolitan Opera soprano. We notice that both of these girls and Miss Walsh are wearing colored hair styles to match their outfits. This fashion was promoted by Nancy German. Looking through the teleceiver, one might won- der why after fifty years everyone seems to look just as he did in ' 5 6. This is a result of the invention of the rejuvination machine by Dave Ralston and Gene Maxton. This invention has been voted one of the most valuable of the century. And now let ' s go into the control room to watch our approach to Mars. Here we find our pilot, Nancy Stevens, giving directions to her co-pilot, Anita McClellan, for the landing. Near by is Janie Cleland, who has been keeping a poetic journal of the entire trip. Our stop on Mars has been completed, and it is time to go on — On into space and on to new " heights " for the class of ' 56!!

Paee Ninety-one JhwuqpL JJvl TJmaa, One to eight and nine to twelve, Thus go the years we treasured so. The yearbooks stacked upon the shelves, The friendly faces come and go. The rising early in the morn. The dirty shirt, the dress that ' s torn From playing with blocks and then the crayons, To junior high wearing slacks and rayons. We then progressed; how we did grow ' T would be one year till we would know The freshman joys, the petty fights, Trying to live with senior rights! This year passed quietly and slow; The time was near we soon would go. Our sophomore year was full of fun, Band and vocal medals won. Our junior year we worked and slaved, For our class trip the money saved. But still the time crept swiftly by; Our senior year came with a sigh. We toiled and stayed up late at night Trying to bring our grades up right. Graduation! the day did come. The joyous day our hardwork won! These few small hours we ' ll remember well, For years to come to live and tell. We ' re on our own, secure positions. Teachers, dentists, and physicians.
