"TH SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
EPTEMBER, 1926! Four hundred timid freshmen
made their way upon the Tech campus for the first
time. They blinked at the huge Main Building and ad-
mired the Arsenal, they found delight in the great cam-
pus and were pleased with the fountain, Did they feel
awkward and inferior? Assuredly. But these young
people were destined to grow in mind, in spirit, and in
body, and to become the pride of Tech. They had
within their souls the spark which soon kindled into
eager hte, they possessed that great virtue, ambition.
As these freshmen awkwardly fitted themselves into
their proper place, they envied the sophomores, admired
the juniors, and revered the seniors. How they longed
to be seniors! September, 1929, seemed far distant, but
they set out on that fascinating journey toward grad-
uation with earnest zeal.
Although there were many pitfalls on this journey
and a few dropped by the wayside, the ardent students
persevered and, with ambition as their password, stead-
ily walked the road that led through the first three years
to the senior year which now brings its final triumph-
a diploma from Technical High School.
From the beginning our class showed a diversity of
talents and this became more marked as the years
passed. Some members early developed into writers,
and, after taking the course in journalism, became re-
porters and editors on the CANNON staff. Our artists
have displayed their talents in exhibits, our musicians
have joined bands, orchestras, or vocal groups, our
more robust members have helped win many honors in
athletics, our stenographers and typists have become
proficient and are now ready to enter the business
world, our academic students have been leaders in club
work, and our speakers have gone into the city churches
where they have made interesting talks. Also, a few of
us have won outstanding individual honors: Daniel
Shattuck was the second tenor in the quartette which
won first honors in a national contest, Robert Hammer
won the Navy Day Essay contest and was awarded a
trip to Washington, and James Baker won the grand
prize in the Model Home contest.
During the sophomore year came the great organ
fund campaign and our class entered into active par-
ticipation as the members vied with one another to see
who could obtain the most money for the fund to equip
the auditorium with a fine organ. As a result of this we
now have the splendid instrument which graces our
auditorium and fills the building with soul-inspiring
By the time our junior year came, we had learned to
appreciate Tech and its ideals. We valued the sweet
companionship of friends among both students and
teachers. We adored the beautiful campus alive with
trees, bushes, blossoms, and birds. We loved the stately
Arsenal proudly lifting its grim clock tower so tall fas
the song runsj high into the skies, its time-honored
steps worn by the feet of thousands of successful Tech
And so, the Senior T 1930 class paused at the end of
its junior year to glimpse its most successful one.
September, 1929! Seniors at last! An ambition real-
ized! With dignity did the seniors stroll about the cam-
pus in the anticipated self-conhdent groups which are
the fear of freshmen, the admiration of sophomores,
and the envy of juniors. With dignity did the seniors
mount the steps of the aged Arsenal on their way to
senior roll rooms 1, 2, and 4, where commenced the
slow process of organization.
As a first step in this organization, the senior roll
rooms, under the able supervision of their sponsors,
Miss Axtell, Miss Harter, and Miss Welch, elected
Ryan Hall, Robert Babcock, and Arthur Shumaker,
chairmen of their respective rooms. This led to the
important business of furthering friendships, raising
ideals, and determining purposes for the last months at
Tech. These were embodied in the constitution which
was read through senior rooms until all were familiar
with the contents.
During the fall the seniors helped all they could in
the formal dedication of the auditorium. Four pro-
grams were given to show how this one building can be
used as an auditorium, a concert hall, a theatre, and a
gymnasium. Contrary to former custom, the "A" and
"TH divisions of the 1930 class combined their funds
and as the class gift presented to the school a number
of chairs to be placed in the principal's box and a plat-
form fund whereby unusual speakers and musicians
may be brought to Tech. As a result of this fund, the
student body has already enjoyed hearing speakers
such as Thomas Skeyhill, musicians such as the Cos-
sack Chorus, and dramatists such as Gay MacLaren
who gave the program on Dad's Night.
In November, the class enthusiastically elected the
officers who have guided us through the year. The three
nominees for each office, made by open ballot, gave in-
teresting talks before the roll rooms. As a result, our
ofiicers are: President, Ryan Hall, vice-president, Eu-
genia Fittz, treasurer, Robert Stone, secretary, Doro-
thy Arnholter, sergeant-at-arms, Robert Babcock. In
March, Marjorie de Vore won the contest for the class
song and Fay Barnes won the contest for the class poem.
The officers appointed Arthur Shumaker, historian.
The class officers early appointed the several com-
mittees and the "Tv 1930 seniors worked busily and
efficiently at their duties. The cases in the south corridor
held a display of photographers' works of art. The
Voorhis studio received the large majority of votes,
then began the much discussed ordeal of being
"snapped" It was difficult to choose the most beautiful
color combination from the number of lovely ones sub-
mitted by the committee, but in the end the class chose
that of coral, peach, and jade. Soon after the beginning
of the semester there was a senior auditorium. After
the meeting each senior emerged from the building
wearing the insignia of the "Tn 1930 class. From the
mottoes submitted by the committee the class deter-
mined to be guided by the idea that "A quitter never
wins, a winner never quits." During February and
March respective committees made arrangements for
ordering pins, rings, and announcements.
Many individuals in our class continued to receive
honors in the Hnal year. Our athletes, Eugene Behmer,
Robert Babcock, Earl Campbell, and jack McLaugh-
lin, helped win many games in football and basketball,
while Mildred Thixton and Louisa Scudder once again
participated in basketball. Ryan Hall became co-maga-
zine editor of the ARSENAL CANNON. Ellsworth Eberly
was appointed lieutenant-colonel in the R.O.T.C. Mary
Hall, Giltner Knipe, Fabra King, and Arthur Shu-
maker, as members of the Demagorian Club, continued
to speak on Sunday evenings in the city churches.
May second marked the evening of the senior play,
'QA Little Journey," by Rachel Crothers. Seniors de-
lighted in trying-out for this appealing comedy, and
after hours of suspense, it was learned that Gene Port-
teus and Ernest Schaefer had won the leading roles.
These were ably assisted by a supporting cast of Vir-
ginia Stephenson, James Baker, Robert Hammer, Mary
Alice Burch, jane Williams, Eugenia Fittz, Edward
Lambert, Robert Hively, Elizabeth Hughes, Marie
Fear, Arthur Shumaker, Everett Kuhn, Paul Strie-
beck, Ralph Lett, Gerald Deer, and Ralph Proud. Un-
der the competent direction of Miss Ryan the play was
patiently rehearsed and successfully presented.
On May twenty-third, we cast away all trouble and
gathered in the gymnasium for our class party. Long
shall we remember the fun we had there. Its success
was due to the Senior Day committee with Fabra King
as chairman. This committee also planned the Class
Day program on june fourth. At this time we held our
final business meeting and received some of our awards.
Vesper service, newly instituted at Tech, was held
Sunday, June eighth. It was at this time that we real-

I-IAN D SALUTE
U UILQTV, commanded Sergeant Pruett. whacking
his desk with a battered dowel-rod. The clear,
ringing tones of his powerful voice penetrated to the
farthest corners of the big room under the Arsenal, cut-
ting through the noisy hum and babble of conversation
as a sharp knife cuts through butter. Instantly the
cadets ceased talking and turned to face the speaker.
"Ye gods o' war!" exclaimed the Sergeant, disgust-
edly. "Chatterl Chatter! Chatter! You're worse than
an old ladies' sewing circlel Now cut out this talking
and get down to business. just because itis raining and
we can't drill outside is no reason for you to take a holi-
day. We've got only three more days of this week and
five of next week before the big annual inspection, and
if you expect to win, it, you'll have to improve a lot.
"I have noticed that you're all more or less inclined
to overlook military courtesy. That's no way to prepare
for an inspection. If I find anyone else failing to pay
the proper respect to his superior officers, Iyll certainly
make things hot for him . . ."
Every one of the hundred and sixteen boys assembled
in that room knew that the last statement quoted was
not a threat, but a promise to be carried out to the letter.
The Sergeant's words found varying receptions with
the cadets. For instance, they aroused little emotion in
Harold Tanner, for Harold was the cadet colonel and
consequently had no superior officers within the school,
excepting Major Schroeder and Sergeant Pruett, who
are members of the regular army. Furthermore, he had
no fear that anyone would refuse to respect him, for he
was popular and well-liked by his fellow cadets.
Bertram lVIclVIasters, on the other hand, welcomed
the ultimatum enthusiastically. At last the buck-pri-
vates and non-coms would have to salute him, whether
they liked it or not! In the past they had all too often
felt an overpowering urge to look away, pretending not
to notice him, when he appeared on the scene. To them
Bert was a pest-the bane of every soldier's existence-
a conceited second lieutenant. Bert knew this, but the
knowledge made him even more determined that they
should recognize his rank. He had frequently reported
cases of insubordination, but the offenses had contin-
ued. Now, with the Sergeant definitely on his side, Bert
believed he could see victory ahead, and his self-con-
tented soul rejoiced.
Friday, the day of the weekly inspection, arrived. A
few minutes after eight o'clock Bert entered the Wood-
ruff Place gate and proceeded along the broad cinder
path, past the Barn, toward the north end of the Main
Building. His luxurious boots and Sam Browne belt
gleamed in the morning sunlight. His spurs and saber-
chain rattled importantly. Knife-edge creases ran down
the sleeves of his coat and the flaring legs of his
breeches. In short, his magnihcent appearance belied
the single round button which he wore on each shoulder
as the emblem of his rank.
As he strutted up the path amid leisurely-strolling
students, always on the lookout for admiring glances,
he encountered several cadets who wore the pistol-belt
and wrap-legging of the lower ranks. All of them
saluted, grudgingly and half-heartedly. They recog-
nized this lieutenant as an officer but not as a gentle-
man. However, Bert was not troubled by this distinc-
tion, he was satisfied that they had saluted him. He re-
turned their salutes in his "snappiest" manner and
just as he reached the broad cement walk which con-
nects the Main Building and the Auditorium, Harold
Tanner walked into view, past the farther corner of the
Main, escorting Bert's "best girllv The two were en-
gaged in conversation. The girl seemed to be very much
interested, but Harold's face wore an expression of
embarrassment, boredom, and annoyance combined.
Neither of them at first noticed Bert.
Bert stopped short and stared in astonishment. His
girl-I Then Harold glanced over his companion's head
full into Bert's eyes. Bert instantly recovered his com-
posure and executed a perfect salute. To his extreme
surprise, Harold made no response! The colonel's face
became scarlet, he glanced down at the girl, and then
turned his eyes straight ahead in a useless attempt to
pretend he had not seen the other officer. The pair
moved on, the girl still unconscious of Bert's presence.
Bert stamped into the Main, growling beneath his
breath. His pride had received a severe blow. "Walk
with my girl and then refuse to salute me, will he? The
big crook! Well, he can,t get away with it! I'll-I'll-I"
When Bert's company assembled for inspection on
the path beside the West Residence, Bert approached
Sergeant Pruett, who was standing on the broad cement
steps. "Sergeant, Colonel Tanner refused to return my
salute this morning," he reported.
Bert had frequently-a bit too frequently-reported
privates and non-commissioned officers for this offense,
but a colonel-that was different.
i'Tanner!n called the Sergeant.
"lVlclVlasters says you failed to return his salute this
"Er-er-yes, sir, that's true," Harold stammered,
in great confusion.
Harold's explanation produced a mighty roar of
laughter in which the Sergeant joined. Bert never fully
recovered from the shock.
'tYes, sir,,' said Harold. "You see, that girl--I was
walking with a girl-she's always following me around,

For life is love and love is God.
KEEN observer requires no great length of time to
discover whois who in our family circle, it's self-
evident. No member of this little group has the power
to command and enforce as does my younger sister.
Wfhen she wishes, she can send a glow of sunshine
through all the house. She also can bring upon our de-
fenseless heads a severe mental fand verball storm.
One of the tender points of her affections is her black
and white cat. The other day the beast bounded into the
room looking very much like a disreputable floor mop.
Her usually immaculate breast and face of snowy white
bore dingy evidence of her excursion to the coal bin. QI
have no words to suggest how filthy she appeared to
me.l I made a dive for her and would have extermi-
nated the wretch, but, like a lightning flash, my kid
sister shot across the room toward me. "You let my cat
alone!" she thundered. Her blue eyes grew black with
fury, and as for me, well, I dropped the cat.
This youngest member of our illustrious family is
also quite an accomplished pugilist. Recently, when the
leaden skies were sifting snowflakes and the ground was
thickly padded with this covering, a friend and I took
our sleds and Bernice to Brookside Park to coast. Chil-
dren, mostly boys, thronged the hill which proved ideal
for our sport. My sister decided to commence action.
She made a perfect take-off, guiding the sled well. An
impish boy saw a chance for some fun, he took off at an
angle and hit Fleet Wing, her sled, upsetting a less
timid girl than he evidently supposed my sister to be.
Both picked themselves up and brushed off their
clothes, then Bernice raised her hand threateningly.
The boy tore across the hill, dodging oncoming sleds,
slipping here and there, regaining his footing, and rac-
ing ong Bernice pursued, biting the tip of her tongue as
hard as she could fa trick she invariably does when
angryl . Most of the crowd stopped to watch the chase,
which grew exceedingly amusing. My young fighter
finally got her man, however, and, without the slightest
regard for her status as a lady, banged him unmerci-
fullyg then she calmly recovered her sled, climbed the
hill, and renewed her sport. This time her descent was
Although she possesses these warlike characteristics,
Babe also has at her disposal a sweetness and helpful-
ness which endears her to all who discover it. When I
am studying hard, it is she who anticipates my wish for
a drink of fresh waterg it is she who gets my book or
pencil for me. Her dark blue eyes, which sometimes
blacken with anger, also shine with love. Perhaps she
dries the dishes for mother or dusts for me. Maybe she
sweeps the front porch or pokes the fire. In some way
she finds a means of expressing her affection by helping
us now and then.
She is like an April day whose clouds obscure the sky
for a moment, then scurry past, leaving an azure heaven
and a smiling sun.
IGHT furniture made grotesque shadows in the dark,
close room. Someone breathed heavily. Slowly the
door opened. A figure entered quietly, then the door
closed. A shadow crossed the room. The wardrobe door
opened. Clothes rustled and hangers jingled softly. One
by one light pieces of clothing were tossed from within
the wardrobe to a big chair by the door. The figure
worked silently and swiftly. On leaving the wardrobe, it
advanced cautiously to the jewel case on the dressing
table. The jewelry tinkled and rang as a hand plunged
into the costly depths in the darkness. The figure
stopped, listened, closed the box, and turned to the win-
dow. After opening it carefully as far as it would go, the
figure started toward the chair where the clothing had
been thrown. With a piercing crash that resounded
through the quiet house, tiie Chinese brass incense
burner on the desk below the window banged to the
fioor, and rolled noisily across the room. Its echoes had
not died before a deep voice thundered from another
part of the house.
The figure stood rooted to the spot. In voice trem-
bling with fear it responded, "I, fatherf,
"What time is ir?,'
Not daring to lie, the figure again answered in a
quavering voice, "One-thirty.'7
'eYou promised to be home by twelve. No more dates

Tees olf with a lusty swing,

A line reward for a pretty fling,

A TRAGEDY IN THE LUNCH ROOM
The fairyland of cherry blossoms,
Moonbeams on snow-capped Fujiyama.
The incessant jargon and chatter,
Silver temple bells a tinkling.
To see, to hear-
The Nile, pyramids, ancient temples,
Vast stretches of sand meeting the golden sky.
Curiosity for musty ages,
Thrill of mysterious atmosphere.
To view, to experience-
Ivy-grown manors with rolling lawns,
Grim, staunch, old castles of bygone times.
All poets in Westminster Abbey,
London from Temple Bar to Soho Square.
To visit, to know-
But first to roam-
Fields, woodlands, rivers, mountains, cities,
The States from Maine to California.
Wall Street and Fifth Avenue in New York,
Each Main Street in little "one-horse" towns.
And always to roam, to walk-
The United States.

WENTY-TWO. My time had come! Trembling from
head to foot, I walked to my fate. I heard nothing,
I saw only the wall where it was to happen.
I became weaker, and my knees failing me alto-
gether, I slid limply down, blindly groping for a sup-
port. My searching fingers found "something or other"
projecting from the wall, and I dropped thankfully
upon it. No one noticed my actions. No one cared as
to what was happening to me. Was there no mercy?
I took one glance at the batteries trained upon me
and resigned myself to my inevitable fate.
I dimly remember, "Lift up your headlv
"Yes," I thought, "I will take it like a man." Then-
"Ready?" the same voice inquired. Repulsing a demon-
ical urge to laugh, I stiffened, threw up my chin, mois-
tened my lips, and nodded, "Yes." Moments stretched
into hours. Would he never shoot? "Next. Twenty-
Oh, girls! wasn't it just too thrilling though, and

E WERE sitting at a crowded table in the old lunch
room. The usual lunch-hour noises-the metal-
lic clatter of trays, the rattle of dishes, the scraping of
wood against concrete, the chatter and hum of carefree
conversation, merry laughter-met our ears, but my
companion did not hear them. He stared down at the
tray before him with eyes that saw nothing. His face
wore a look of worried, puzzled concentration. His eye-
brows were drawn down, as were the corners of his
mouth. His left elbow was propped on the edge of the
table, and his cheek lay against his fist. With his free
hand he toyed with the straw which protruded from a
small milk bottle, now empty. His shoulders drooped,
his legs were drawn up under his chair.
"What's wrong, old fellow?" I asked, consolingly.
"Lessons worrying you?"
"Naw,,' he muttered. "Can't decide whether to eat
pie or ice cream first."
ooo noses are my hobby-probably because I
havenft one. They have always been objects for
speculation at any gathering, social or otherwise. Even
study halls furnish a variety of specimens.
Ar present there is a very long, irregular, prying,
blonde nose in the seat in front of me. It gives me a
profile view quite often inferring that it is really worth-
while. A Roman nose several aisles to the right is slight-
ly bent over Tennyson. When that individual frowns,
which he does frequently, the nose becomes more Roman.
If I judged people by noses, and I do, I would have
a great dislike for the blonde nose. My judgment would
denounce the person as shallow and as a follower of
the line of least resistance. The other nose is not quite
so disgusting in my estimation, for sullen people quite
often are justified in their sullenness.
The nose of my ideals is straight, neither broad nor
thin, humped, curled, or turned up. It fits a balanced
face with regular features. I see it every day, but even
if it were mine it wouldn't fit my face.
HEN the day is gone
And the setting sun
In the golden west,
When cares are done,
Your treasures won,
And the birds
Have gone to rest,
You, too, will find
In the twilight time
Sweet peace and happiness.

A REVIEW OF TRACK
NDER the direction of Coaches Paul Nlyers and
Reuben Behlmer, the titanic, triumphant, terrific
tricky Tech track team has made and is making a
With only Hall, Russell, Freeman, and L. Smith, the
remaining letter men from the preceding season, Coach
Myers, with the assistance of Coach Behlmer, has
turned out a fine track aggregation. An average of
eighty boys has turned out for nightly practice. Of
these, twenty are freshmen, and twenty are varsity
tracksters. The following boys have done well in their
particular events: Lowery, shot putg Hall, high jump,
Reed, hurdles, Freeman, in the quarter mileg and Rus-
sell, half-mile. The freshman outfit showed real ability
and promises a well all-around developed team in the
WINS FIRST MEET
Cn Friday, April eleventh, the team opened its
schedule in approved style by spilling Kokomo, 52 to
47, at the Wildcat town. Bill Reed of Tech led the in-
dividual scoring with eleven points.
Muncie came up for slaughter Friday, April eight-
eenth, when Tech invaded the Bearcats' field and hum-
bled them, 57 to 42. Tech copped six out of eleven first
places of this meet.
Following this battle, the boys grabbed third place
with fourteen points in the Greencastle Relays, held at
Greencastle on Saturday, April twenty-sixth. Eleven
schools participated in this meet. Malcolm Hall set a
new record: five feet, eleven and three-fourths inches
in the high jump.
Tech, Warren Central, and Lebanon met at the
Tech field on Monday, April twenty-eighth, for a tri-
angular meet. The Green and White collected fifty-
three points, while Warren Central and Lebanon won
thirty-eight and eight points respectively. In this con-
test the hosts "went to town" by placing in every event
and by copping seven first places. Behmer of Tech was
high-point man, having collected thirteen points.
Bloomington journeyed to Tech on Friday, May
second, and tripped the home team, 71 to 28, for the
Green and White's first individual defeat. However,
the visitors did not meet with serious competition, since
Coach Myers had withdrawn from the lineup fifteen
varsity men, with the intention of saving them for the
Greencastle Relays. Smith, by winning the half-mile
event, brought in Tech's only first place.
At Greencastle the Arsenalites tied with Peru for
third place. Malcolm Hall again set a new carnival
high-jump record of five feet, eleven inches.
Kokomo Relays: Kokomo, 27, Brazil, 20, Tech and
Big Ten: Kokomo, 39, Tech, 325 Anderson, 252.

NVIT1-I THE BASEBALL BOYS
ELLO, gang! I-Ierels a thirteen-year resume of Tech
baseball. In 1917 Tech won the state. In the final
games the following scores were made: Tech 5, Ander-
son 0 fforfeitl g Tech 7, Manual 3, Tech 12, Kewanna 2.
Stay in there and pitch, Lutz
In 1918 most of the boys were playing a bigger game
of life-the World War. Tech had no team.

1919, but this did not prevent it from winning the city
The old eye, Payne
Coming to bat in 1920, the boys drubbed all of the
city teams for another city title. The team also won five
games and lost two.

BOTTOM Row: Left to Right-Emmett Lowery, Clarence Jones, Earl Overman, Robert Babcock, Eugene Behmer,
TOP Row: Left to Right-Robert Loser, Frank Baird, Frank Reiszner, Earl Campbell, Kenneth Payne.
ASKETBALL-our great Hoosier hysteria which has
been resting for nearly three months among the
solid cement portals of the giant Tech gym and which
will not revive itself until late this year-is never a for-
gotten spirit of our modern sports world.
Tim Campbell, a moulder of finer young men, began
his third season as head mentor on the hardwood floor
with only three veterans from his 1928-29 edition of net
stars, in the personages of Emmett Lowery as floor-
guard, Frank Reissner at center, and Robert Babcock
at backguard, capable of changing to floorguard or to
a forward's position when needed.
These three athletes were calloused in the funda-
mentals of the game and had but to add to their tech-
nique, it was these boys around whom was built a team
which gave every fan a thrill when it trotted on the
floor ready to battle to a finish with its opponents.
In order to initiate the new gymnasium in true Tech
fashion, Mr. Gorman, athletic director, scheduled the
graduating members of the 1928-29 state runners-up
team to play in the dedicatory contest which the alumni
won by squeezing out a 25-to-24 victory.
During the lean Christmas month, the Campbellmen
got off to a good start by scoring three victories out of
four starts, winning, 29 to 19, from Rochester's Ze-
bras, 31 to 20 from Greenf1eld's Tigers, and 43 to 27

ECI-i's varsity understudies, the reserve players, es-
tablished a marvelous f78.6QQj record.
The seconds set the pace for the varsity by drubbing
Arlington's varsity combination, 34 to 7, in the season's
opener. But things didn't go well at Muncie, and the
Bearcat cubs emerged victorious, 21 to 15.
Then began a long period of seven victories which
started during the second week of December on the
night following the Muncie defeat, when the Techmen
toppled the visiting Greenfield netmen, 23 to 11. Leba-
non fell next, 27 to 14, Kokomo followed, 24 to 13,
Martinsville fell short by one point, 23 to 22, Frank-
fort couldn't get the ball and dropped by the wayside,
20 to 10, Rushville did as bad and the result was 21 to
10, Connersville was listless and the score was 12 to 8.
But Newcastle felt like Muncie did, and again the
score was 21 to 15 against the Arsenal men. The An-
derson papooses snatched a 21-to-20 victory out of the
To finish out February and the season in a blaze of
glory, the scrubs spurted and drubbed Broad Ripple,
38 to 18, took Washington flndianapolisl , 19 to 10,
and squeezed out a 27-to-21 win in the year's finale
against the Shelbyville youths.
This record speaks for itself-quality and quantity,
both, are in abundance in this group of underclassmen,
all of whom should be available for next season's team.
RECORD FRESI-IIE GAMES
WAS I GYPED?
ECH's finest crop of freshman basketball players
turned out last fall for the yearling squad.
These first-year boys continued through nine con-
tests, ending their campaign with a bang. They
swamped Broad Ripple, 56 to 19, knocked out Manual,
33 to 19, subdued Washington, 27 to 155 drubbed
Shortridge, 39 to 11, squeezed out a 14-to-13 victory
over Manual in a return contest, again thumped Broad
Ripple, 43 to 11, more than tripled the score on Wash-
ington in a return engagement, 25 to 7, doubled the
score on Shortridge in another return game, 26 to 13,
and ended their schedule with a decisive triumph over
Southport, 48 to 11.

King Basketball staved off the spinal meningitis
epidemic long enough to stage a battle at Kokomo in
which the Wildcats were shaded, 38 to 37. But the
epidemic finally got him, and he didn,t recuperate until
two weeks later, when Martinsville rallied to a 26-to-25
victory, and Frankfort followed suit and stopped a gal-
lant rally in time to win a 25-to-21 decision.
Then came the city tourney and Tech triumphed,
31 to 10 over Manual, and 32 to 12 over Shortridge
to win the city championship.
A slump followed and Rushville scored with a 20-to-
13 total, Logansport fought uphill to a 32-to-26 ver-
dict, Connersville drove and pounded its way to a
30-to-24 conquest, and Newcastle raced to a 19-to-7
It was high time someone called a halt to this slaugh-
tering, and so the Green and White players were given
a lay-off during which they regained their confidence
and then came back to finish the season with a rush.
Anderson, Vincennes, and Shelbyville fell before their
onslaught 29 to 23, 27 to 17, and 26 to 23, respectively,
while Richmond caught them off-guard and admin-
istered a 23-to-17 beating.
The sectional tournament proved that the cream of
Indianapolis had prepared carefully, as the victories
piled up: 36 to scrappy New Bethelis 12, 30 to weary
Acton's 3, 20 to spirited Washington's 2, and 38 to
fighting Manualis 5 points.
But Tech met its Waterloo the following week when
Anderson's Indians cool, confident, and defiant, baffled
the men of Indianapolis throughout their contest and
secured the latter's scalps with a 20-to-13 victory.
Here the season for the Eastside courtmen ended.
They proved to all the fans that they were fine, clean-
cut young men, upholding the ideals of true sportsman-
ship at all times and places.

ticket for the state track meet in order to see our

HOLLAND, were in position at the stand with ORVAL
RUCKER, the staff sports correspondent. The starters,
FRANCES DEZAREK and CLIFTON FULK, had the run-
ners in line, ready to start. But wait-who is in that
line-up? There seems to be some question among the
Ofiicials as to whether or not they should let ELIZABETH

220-yard relay against DANIEL SHATTUCK, Tech, and

All the trouble wasn't over then for, when the finish
came, it proved that CHARLES GUFFIN was the Dark
Horse of Tech and won by a hairis breadth over WIL-
BUR LEMASTER, one of the Stars. Just think of all the
tears and wet handkerchiefs we girls had because our
loyal Techites had changed to a high school which they
thought excelled Tech. LIZZIE and AL, ain't you
ashamed of yourselves?

dropped all thoughts of the ill-fated winds when my
live-saver, LEONARD THOMAS, came past, selling life-
saver mints. LEONARD was not to be surpassed, though,
for our gallant MR. NEAL PIERSDN was distributing
free Eskimo pies to the girls.
After this short intermission, the tracksters again
were in action. The shot-put was being contested by
DELBERT DARINGER, MILTON JONES, and CHARLES
MADINGER. The high hurdles were being taken by
MARGARETTA LEIBEL, MARTHA MCCOMB, and DORO-

as low hurdlers.

REVIEWS TENNIS SEASON
NDER the tutelage of Mr. Paul Foltz, Tech's tennis
team encountered a successful season, having de-
feated some of the best outfits in the state. Five boys,
Emmett Lowery, Jack Yule, Norman Worth, Lee
Loman, and I-larry Martin, swung the racquets for
Tech. They opened their season by blanketing the
Shelbyville outfit, 5 to I. In a gruelling contest at the
Hawthorne courts, the Green and White was bested,
4 to 2, by Shortridge. Nevertheless, the boys came back
and overcame the Anderson aggregation, 5 to 1, which
placed them on a 2-to-1 basis on all games played.
On Saturday, May tenth, the Green and White were
host to several visiting teams at the annual Tennis
Conference. In this meet Lee Loman of Tech won the
right to be called "singles champion" for 1930.
LAY DAY, the girls' annual spring carnival, held
May twenty-first on the Tech athletic field, brought
to a close the girls' track, volley ball, and baseball sea-
sons. Many unusual features were included in this three-
fold meet. The 50-yard dash, the basketball throw, the
high jump, and broad jump were outstanding events.
A contest between the two strongest volley ball teams,
the baseball throw, a cage ball game, relay, and a base-
ball game completed Play Day.
oRTY girls reported for volley ball practice when the
coaches, Miss I-Iazel Abbett and Miss Grace Green-
wood, issued the first call, early in April. A league,
consisting of four teams, was organized, and the girls
played an intra-mural tournament, on Monday and
Thursdayafternoons, throughout April and May.
FTER a successful series of intra-mural games played
by the four girls' teams which were organized early
in the basketball season, Miss Abbett and Miss Green-
wood sponsored a tournament which included these
Miss Abbett's Green and White team won the tour-
ney when it defeated the Blue and Gold sextette, 42 to

Seventeen girls were chosen and organized into two
teams to compete in a game to decide the season's
awards which were presented by Mr. Stuart March
twenty-eighth at the athletic award assembly. Mildred
Thixton, Nlartha Caskey, Dorothy Milliron, Bertine

and Thelma Berry received monograms. Dorothy
Cheezum, Lillian Tomson, jane Kelley, June Kramer,
Louisa Scudcler, IVIary Hall, Eva Lorentz, Betty Jean

this season has been different from the plan used in
former seasons in that no inter-school games were
THE GOLF TEAM
FTER several elimination contests, Coach Thomas
Campbell was able to cut a large group of ambi-
tious golfers to four, who have constituted Tech's team
for this year. These four, James Munro, Tony Petric,
Walter Chapman, and Cecil Bolding, have had a suc-
cessful season, having defeated Shelbyville, Shortridge,
Lebanon, and Anderson in their first four engagements.
Games yet to be played when the CANNON went to
press were with Manual IZJ , Lebanon, Shortridge, and
Shelbyville. All home games were played at the Pleas-
ant Run golf course.

WITH THE MILITARY UNITS SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
HE ARS1'INAL TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL R.O.T.C.
unit was organized at Tech in September, 1919.
Since military training was compulsory, Tech had a
unit that consisted of 1,965 boys. The department was
placed under the command of Colonel Westmoreland,
who was assisted by an able staff of officers which in-
cluded Captain Perry, Master-Sergeant Short, and
First-Sergeant McCarthy. Later in the year, three more
sergeants were ordered to Tech. In 1920, Sergeant
Chester Pruett was assigned to Tech, and has devoted
his time to the R.O.T.C. department ever since. The
year 1921 saw Major Edwards at the helm of the Tech
unit, with Sergeants McCarthy, Pruett, and Short as
assistants. This year military training was made elec-
tive, but Tech still boasted a unit that numbered 1,400.
In 1922, Sergeant McCarthy was replaced by Sergeant
Gustaf Wolff, who remained at Tech until his re-
moval to George Washington High School in 1927.
For the first time since its establishment, the R.O.
T.C. cadets were inspected by government officials in
1922. Tech was proclaimed honor school for the first
In 1923, Captain Schroeder, later Major Schroeder,
was sent to replace Major Edwards who had asked to
be relieved. Again in 1923, Tech won the inspection
in the fifth corps area, and repeated this performance
in each of the following years. Under the guidance of
Sergeant Pruett, and under the command of Major
Schroeder, Tech has established herself as one of the
outstanding secondary schools of military training in
The activities of the unit have been numerous and
varied. The cadets have taken part in numerous parades
and demonstrations. They also have taken part in city
competitive drills, and have been successful in winning
every one of them.
In 1927, the Tech cadets aided in patrolling the tor-
nado-stricken east side area of this city. Ralph Schooley
and Wright Cotton brought additional glory to Tech's
R.O.T.C. unit by winning the distinction of being the
best cadets in the city in 1928 and 1929 respectively.
This semester the cadets concentrated their efforts
toward the inspection which was held on April twenty-
fifth. Tech made a remarkable showing under the
command of Cadet Colonel Frank Reissner, who had
an excellent staff of officers to co-operate with him. The
inspecting officers this year were Lieutenant-Colonel
Bowman and Major Guyer, both from the fifth corps
area headquarters at Columbus, Ohio.
Created in accordance with the National Defense
Act, the Tech R.O.T.C. department has not only de-
veloped and trained the youths to be prepared for mili-
tary emergencies, but has also trained the youths to be
physically fit, mentally alert, and self-reliant, prepared
to-.face the manifold problems of every-day life.

ized keenly that the closing days of high school life had
come. As we lingered on the campus after the service,
we sorrowed that this life was passing.
And now there remains only commencement. This
year the exercises will be different from those of other
years. The Senior "A" 1930 class will receive their
diplomas on Tuesday evening, June tenth, while the
Senior "T" 1930 class will receive theirs on Thursday
evening, June twelfth. We, the "An and "T" 1930

Goodbye, dear Tech. For four years you have guided
us, you have showered us with opportunities, you have
been our Inspiration, our Open Sesame to the better
way of living and to the life that awaits us in college
or civil communities.
Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors-in the coming
years, at some time, steal away to some shadowy spot
on the campus or stand before the Arsenal in the twi-
light and let your imagination open your hearts to the
past. Perhaps you may see our shadows as we seem to
gather in happy groups to talk over our past achieve-
ments and coming ventures, for though we be absent
in body, though we be scattered to the four corners of
the earth, our hearts remain here.
A SLEEP IN DUCER
NE, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine,
and ten, over and over again until your subcon-
scious mind carries it on to the hundred mark and back
again, only to race along the same track once more and
on into the hundreds and thousands. That's just an old
trick long practiced by human beings suffering from
that terror, sleeplessness. You may go to bed, worn out,
but with that ever-increasing fear, "I shall not be able
to sleep." Then as you lie there, staring into the inky
blackness, thinking, "I can't sleep," you unconsciously
begin what hundreds of others have done before you:
One, two, three, four, and so on far into the night.
Now, many, many times have I done this very thing,
and I know what it means, so, after years of effort and
thought, I have at last come upon a satisfactory means
of counting myself to sleep. I-Iere it is.
Wiggle carefully around into a very uncomfortable
position, begin a long and unwinking stare at some
favorite spot on the ceiling, and then begin to count as
fast as you ordinarily do: Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco,
seis, siete, ocho, nueve, y diez. Keeping up this same
rapid speed, continue on to one hundred and then go on
toward a thousand! Ciento, ciento y uno, ciento y dos,
on and on, and I guarantee that long before you reach
"mil," you will be floating peacefully in the land of
dreams-thanks to "uno, dos, tres."

IN THE CRYSTAL GAZING BALL
s THE crystal gazing ball slowly revolved, I saw
CHARLES MANNING, the desert sheik, poised on
his fire-shod steed. FABRA KING then came into view.
He was a night club entertainer who, at the moment,
was warbling, "I Ain't Got Nobody." As I gazed,
LOUISE BOGK skated by with HERBERT BRANHAM. In a
crowded auditorium, MARGARET DUNLAP was deliver-
ing an address on "Why Study Expression."
HENRY KER and LLOYD REED, nicknamed "the Kol-
lege Kut-ups," rattled by in an ancient Hivver in the
company of LUCILLE NEWTON and LOUISE SHELLA-
BARGER. RALPH PROUD, the latest movie hero, EFFIE
WILLEY, his leading lady, and GORDON SCI-IUMAN,
the villain, coasted by in a Rolls Royce. Their manager,
ERNEST SWEET, accompanied them. Suddenly my ball
halted, and the misty veil again surrounded it. My
glimpse of the future was cut off!
SENIORS HOLD PICNIC
OW that spring is here, I feel myself about to fall
in love again. It's a terribly general kind of loving.
Everyone that crosses my path already begins to be
pretty, wonderful, splendid, and glorified.
I have in mind now a girl-blonde, sky-blue eyes that
shine like-let's see, what do they shine like? Oh, well,
since I can't think of anything else, say the pants of a
blue Serge suit. Wfhat could be more shiny than that?
But she is not the only one. Let me give you warning:
it is a good idea to avoid meg to duck into a doorway Or,
safer yet, jump into an elevator shaft, for I am getting
disgustingly happy and always ready, as I said before,
to fall in love all over again. Blondes, brunettes, and
even red-heads, it makes no difference.
Now isn't that peculiar? I dislike red-heads all year
around except in the spring. I haven,t anything against
the girls themselves, it's just their red hair. Perhaps it
is because I went with one Once and-but why go into
that? You would just laugh.
This spell of loving usually lasts until June, and
while in it fthe spelll I positively break out with ex-
uberant rashness, even to the extent of red-heads.
So beware of me or woe to you.
A zealous reporter interviewed fifteen illustrious sen-
iors of the "Tw division of the 1930 class. He asked

TECH'S KINDERGARTEN XVI-IERE IS IT?
HIS is station A T S, broadcasting the gala opening
of the special senior nursery in the south wing of
the Main. The seniors are beginning to arrive now and,
while they gather, I want to say just a word to describe
this lovely room. The walls are tinted a pale blue with
pictures of Mother Goose characters as a border. There
is a little fellow all dressed up in a blue shirt, a red tie,
orange sox, and yellow pants. Let's see-yes, it's JOSEPH
VENEZIA, I thought so.
Heavens! LoUIsE WELCH is pouring the water out
of the goldfish bowl and getting it all over her pretty
pink rompers too. Well, well-no, it isn't either-
MARY ROCHE has pulled LOUISE SUMMERS, hair ribbon
off and that young lady is sitting in the middle of the
fioor howling. Now over in this corner we have some
little cots. These are for the kiddies who take a nap
every afternoon. just now FLORENCE PAVEY is sleeping
on one. Oh! Good gracious, ROBERT TUCKER is stuck
in the waste basket, and IRENE HARKER has run into
him on her kiddie-kar. What an uproar!!!
Now a scooter race has started among HARLAN
HICKS, MARY LOUISE SMITH, and FLORA HENSLEY.
HARLAN is dressed in blue and white checked rompers
and just looks too cute for words. Oh! Bam! He ran
right into MARTHA SCHIVIIDT, and now there is a mass
of blue and white and yellow with several arms and legs
sticking out. Oh, goodness-GEORGE PEED is drawing
pictures on the wall, letls see, what is that under that
funny looking one? Radio announcer! Say, someone
stop that child! The teachers are beginning to put them
all on the little cots for a short nap. ALEEN WASH-
BURN is hiding behind a chair over in the corner.
We now return to the oflice studio where we will
hear a talk on "The Educational Value of Mother
Goose in the Lives of Our Youngsters."

As ELEANOR MULLEN was walking across the cam-

reached up and caught two butterflies. As he threw
them down, they acquired human form, and proved to

just then a squad of janitors came up, pole-vaulting

TTENTION, hunters! No longer do you need to seek
the dark forests when you don your hunting cap
and shoulder your gun. The Tech campus has an am-
ple supply of ugamef' DEER, LYONS, and a Fox can be
found in the ranks of the senior HTH class itself.
Unless you object to the absence of antlers, GERALD
is as fine a DEER as you have ever seen. DEFORD, also,
is an excellent LYON and can even roar when occasion
demands. A smarter Fox than FRANCIS is hard to find.
If you become tired, you may recline in the shade of
one of the many trees and listen to the birds, especially
the MARTINS, ROBERT and WILLIAM.
Any hunters who wish to make use of this opportu-
nity must hurry for the season closes in June.

ES,,, remarked Miss RUTH KRUG, designer, to
MISS THELMA HINSHAW, Chief of the Women's
Traffic Police Corps, of Indianapolis, "our titles are
rather changed from those we used fifteen years ago
in dear old Technical, aren,t they?7,

HOWARD DU KATE was in one of my classes once-
"Oh-but guess who I saw yesterday-LILLIAN
ALLEN and EVELYN ADCOCK. They own the A. 86 A.
Beauty Parlor, and from all reports they,re making a
great success of it. CRYSTAL JUDKINS, another of our
old classmates, was there having a manicure. I talked
about an hour with her and heard some of the most
interesting news. She had just finished reading a new
book, 'Banta's Banishing of Bashfulnessf You re-
member MAURICE BANTA, don't you? Then, too, she
told me about LLOYD WEDDLE and MADGE POEI-ILER.
Who would have thought we had such celebrities in
our class? Lloyd did take American Government-
now he's the U. S. Ambassador to Spain-and he's so
young, too. Madge Poehler is in the movies. We all used
to think she looked like Barbara La Mar. Her screen
name is Retta La Mond-that's why we didn't recognize
her. RAY ANACKER has become a second Rudy Vallee.
He was always singing silly songs around and about-
and, oh yes-DALE POWELL-you know-the fellow
who was always so crazy about math and peanuts-has
gone to South America to superintend the building of
a great bridge."
"Speaking of Rudy V allee-did you know that
MARY VESTAL has the singing lead in the latest musical
comedy, 'Humpty Dumpty,' and that HERMAN BURN-
STEIN is the villain in that same comedy?"
"Oh, how interesting," exclaimed Jean, "and I can
add to that list. Do you know the Arrow Floral Com-
pany? That company is owned by MARGARET BERGER
and INA MAE CARoTHERs. Besides that, they have a
branch in Chicago, run by CARRIE I-IENNINGER. FLOR-
ENCE MUENCHEN has charge in Detroit, Michigan, and
ALICE WHITINGER runs a similar shop in Cincinnati,
"I'm so glad I had the opportunity to hear about
these people, Jean, but now I must go. You see, one of
my officers just reported that three directors of the
First National Bank parked their cars in a zoned space.
Their names are RALPH SCHEIDEGGER, WARREN
BOULTINGHOUSE, and THoMAs BERTRAND. Their
names sound so familiar rhar I'm investigating the case
myself. I'll let you know how it turns out. Goodbye."
JAMES LIGHT-HHS six ages, metamorphical, patho-
logical, intellectual, chronological, train, and street car.
HATE to ask my older sister or any upperclassman
from Tech about the R.O.T.C. for I can just hear
their cackles and visualize their sneers at my dumbness.
Many things have been told to me about this organiza-
tion, however, I am still in the dark about some points.
The initials, I have been told, mean "Rotten Old Tin
Cans" but this doesn't seem probable, so I guess they
must be "Rookies On Tech Campus." Another thing
that troubles me is IHS on each uniform. After no-
ticing that all are without the cross for the "T," I have
decided that a mistake must have been made.
Then I wonder why some of the R.O.T.C. boys wear
chains on their belt, spurs, boots, and gold buttons. The
spurs are the queerest part of the regalia because I
haven't seen one horse on the campus. Most all of my
friends have uniforms that don't fit and have those
funny-looking collars that turn up. Maybe my friends
went to the wrong tailor and werenit fitted properly.
The other day as I was coming from the library I
saw two most unusual sights. In front of the West
Residence, Walking back and forth, was an R.O.T.C.
boy carrying a wooden gun. This puzzled me for he
seemed to be guarding the building, now of what use
would a wooden gun be in an emergency? Then over
by the Portables I saw a sign with "Magazine" and an
arrow pointing east painted on it. Since I had just come
from the book store which seemed the logical place for
magazines to be bought, I still feel that a mistake has
been made on that sign.
Well, I'm just a freshie, so I have three more years
to learn things of this sort.
