X A X Arsenal Technical Schools is the "School of Tomor-
row," TooAY! A school with every phase of a well-rounded
learning-to-live education . . . the kind of an education which
encompasses yesterday, today, and tomorrow! With a past of
which to be proud, a future endowed with success, and a pace-
setting present, it comprises one of America's few truly comprehensive high schools.
On Tech's seventy-six acres of wooded campus are thirteen buildings, housing a school
which offers two hundred eighty-three courses ranging from the classics of art and literature
to the skills of a modern aircraft shop. To teach these varied curricula are two hundred forty
top-notch faculty members.
In addition to the broad course of studies is an equally diverse extra-curricular realm.
Whether it be cheer-leading or presiding over the senior classy taking part in sports or acting,
singing, or dancing in the "Sketchbook", playing in the dance band or publishing the weekly
news-magazine: broadcasting from Tech's own radio studios or joining a departmental club,
each of the four thousand learning-by-doing pupils can Hnd just what he or she wants to do with
It all began on September 11, 1912, when Milo H. Stuart, founder of the Arsenal Tech-
nical Schools, with a teaching staff of eight and a student body of 183 boys and girls arrived to
lay the foundation of a comprehensive high school!
Prior to that first day of school, Mr. Stuart, who was then principal of Emmerich Man-
ual Training High School, had been asked to inspect the buildings on the thickly wooded
acreage out on East Michigan Street. Manual and Shortridge high schools were too crowded,
relief was needed. Mr. Stuart realized these grounds would be ideal for the progressive type
of school he envisioned.

On the grounds stood ten rusty-red brick buildings. Each had been a structure of a

Placed before the Indiana Supreme Court in 1912, the case pended action until 1916.
At last on May 22, 1916, the land was deeded to the School City of Indianapolis for use
forever as a technical school. Tech's future was assured!

Topped by the Power House smokestack, the Shop Building sprawls along the west campus area.
DeWitt S. Morgan, Tech's Hrst vice-principal, became the leader. He had come to Tech in 1916
as a history teacher and soon was made head of that department. From his first day at ATS, Mr.
Morgan worked steadily with Mr. Stuart for the advancement of the school. Mr. Morgan's
theories of education gained national acclaim. In 1937 he was named superintendent of the city
schools, and another Tech pioneer took the helm.
On the quadrangle, east side border, stands Treadwell Hall, first of the Magonigle Plan buildings.
Hanson H. Anderson, now principal, was one of the eight original faculty members. His
path has led from teacher to head ofthe Mathematics department to vice-principal to principal.
It has been during his administration that a national publication named Tech as "The School
of Tomorrow." His has been the difiicult task of maintaining such a standard through a second
world war which threatened to end all tomorrows.

building is distinctive be-
cause of its inlaid floors,

Some of the future which Mr. Stuart envisioned has arrivedg it has fallen to Mr.
Anderson to project this comprehensive high school even farther.
So that the world may glimpse the workings of such a school, the staff of the 1949 ARSENAL

The Arsenal Technical Schools is a comprehensive
high school. But, just what is a comprehensive high school?
Mr. Hanson H. Anderson, principal, answers this question.
"A comprehensive high school is one which gives full
WM B vfaiv regard to meeting the varied needs, interests, and abilities of
all youth who are entitled to its privileges. It follows, therefore, that the offerings of such a school
must be of such breadth that they may serve best the needs of each individual, fitting him for
normal participation in the social, industrial, civic, and family life of the community, as well as
for advanced formal educational training."
A plan for each individual's Iilldl-'llfdlllflf desires is the educational foundation of ATS!
For the student interested in college-preparatory study, Tech provides a plang for the student
who contemplates employment immediately following graduation, Tech provides a plan, for
the student whose future demands he learn a vocational skill in high school, Tech provides a
plan: for the student who is uncertain how to reach his future goal, Tech provides a plang for
any student who desires to derive the fullest amount of benefit from a well-rounded, study-
work-play high school life, Tech provides a plan!
Technical High School's chief method of directing the student through its comprehensive
organization is by a decentralized guidance and counseling plan, which utilizes every faculty
member as a guidance counselor.
Technical High School's Guidance Office, as the co-ordinating agent of the guidance
program, strives to serve the individual and to plan experiences which will adequately prepare
him to meet his onrushing future.

The Arsenal Technical Schools, comprised of Technical
High School and the vocational schools, has three basic curricular
divisions: .Jz'11a'e111if, Teflzlziffzl, and Ifjfflffllllfll.
For those students preparing for college, Tech's academic
curriculum offers studies expressly intended to meet the most rigid
'Elkay prerequisites of any university. Its English, mathematics, language,
history, and science foundations are strong, throughout Techls history, each year, these and
many other departments have repeatedly won state and national awards.
For those who contemplate high school graduation, but who are uncertain of a college
career, a combination program of academic studies plus technical information and skills is
offered. journalism, child-care, millinery, office practice, R.O.T.C., stagecraft, music directing,
aeronautics, drafting, and numerous industrial courses are a fevv of the Work fields available in
Vocational courses make up the third grouping. Every Techite is presented with the
opportunity to gain comprehensive training in the automotive, building, electrical, metal, avia-
tion mechanics, and printing trades. Upon completion of the required credits in these specialized
courses, plus academic requirements, the student is awarded a Vocational Certificate.
The three-division plan of the Arsenal Technical Schools is effective in meeting the
individuals needs and desires.
liach Techite has a three-way study option: to take only college preparatory courses, to
combine a technical curriculum with a college preparatory program, or to combine vocational
studies with required academic ohferings.

tative cross-section of ATS curriculum offerings.
Tech's job is to present its four thousand stu-
dents with an education for living! lts expansive
curriculum affords the basis for doing this job.
ln 1948-49, as in every advancing year of
Tech, innovations, improvements have taken
place, along with varied departmental and indi-
vidual class projects and curriculum changes.

boys voluntarily formed a military
training unit, calling themselves the
Arsenal Guards. They used Woodruff

Cadets participate in many things in addition to
class work. This year they stood guard at the Indiana
NVorld VVar Memorial for the U40 and 8" car, sent to
Indiana from France on the "Nlerci Train." Later,
they had the honor to stand guard in the Memorial
Room in Stuart Hall for the three days the Tower

the history of Tech. They marched in the Armistice
Day parade and the color guard took its traditional
part in the all-school assemblies. On Army Day,
April 6, the unit was inspected by Lieutenant-Gem
eral VVillis D. Crittenberger. May 3 climaxed the
year's activities with the annual Federal Inspection.

,. "i?eFFF-1"" It is the goal of the Arsenal Technical Schools to teach
its four thousand citizens the art of livingg therefore, in addi-
' tion to classroom curricula, a broad program of extra-curricu-
lar activities is presented so that Techites may meet, Work, and
play in life-like competition and companionship. Extra-cur-
ricular participation adds that pinch of salt which properly
seasons a well-rounded high school life.
Sports claim the limelight. ATS football, basketball, track, baseb-all, golf, tennis, and
wrestling teams maintain a fine average of wins in city and state competition. Not to be outdone,
girls have their program of basketball, volleyball, and archery, plus the annual Play Day With
its contests and awards.
Clubs supply the activity-minded Techite with the chance to succeed in groups which are
outgrowths of classes and which seek to develop specific interests, talents, and hobbies. Club
programs range from the studying of mathematics in everyday life to bird hikes, chemical
explosions, "ham" radio stations, and the planning of social affairs.
For those students preferring the show world, the Division of Program Production offers
work comparable to that of ally professional theater. Members of this division produce school
assemblies and the annual "Sketchbook.,'l build sets for campus and class activities, and maintain
a modern radio station.
Providing an opportunity for leadership development, Tech's Student Affairs Organiza-
tion, representative body comparable to a student council, sponsors such activities as campus
clean-up drives, underclass days, and orientation assemblies.

BEING THE COMPLETE "ScHooL or Toxtoaaowf'
Tech has a well-rounded program of sports. As in any
other all-American high school, football holds a
major spot in the ATS athletic array.
Tech's pigskin pushers of '48 comprised three
squads with Five coaches: Mr. George Sprague and
Mr. VVilliam Treichler, freshmang Mr. George Kli-
hal, reserveg and Mr. Howard Longshore, head var-
sity coach, assisted by Mr. VVayne E. Rhodes.
lt took the Greenclad varsity squad more than half
of the season to squeeze into the winning berth. How-
ever, near the end of the season, the Big Green
handed a favored Cathedral team its hardest victory
of the season. After that, the Green lVave was on the
warpath to stay, first running over the XVashington
gridders, then upsetting its traditional rivals, the
Blue Devils of Shortridge.
Although the official ledger of seasonal scores put
the varsity booters "in the red" bv only three wins in
ten games during the season, their never-give-up-till-
the-game-is-over attitude dubbed the Greenclads as
one of the fightin'est teams in the '48 goalpost circuits.
Next year's gridironmen, under the reserve team
coach, George Nlihal, converted into victory three of
their Five encounters in city competition, and in the
process gained some much-needed experience.

games, the Little Greenies. the freshman eleven.

1949 Indianapolis Sectional Crown was brought
home to Tech this year by Coach Herman Hinshaw's
well-balanced, scrapping varsity basketball team. lt
was Techs first crown since 19-lo and its tenth alto-
gether! The Greenclads, composed of two seniors,
seven juniors, and one sophomore, fought their way
through four games, knocking off NYashington, Short-
ridge, Crispus Attucks, and Southport, before haul-
ing down the precious Butler Fieldhouse nets.
Then came the Regionals, and the Greenclads
found themselves without baskets enough to stop a
strong Summitville team in the opening game. Tech's
spirited tourney play capped an excellent season rec-
ord of thirteen wins and only four setbacks.
The 'liechmen were also city champs, losing their
only city game to XYashington in an invitational tour-
ney at 'l'ech's gym. The mythical city crown was the
third for the seven juniors. ln their reserve and fresh-
man years, they took the city title both times!
The smallest of the '49 Greenclads were the fresh-
men, under the first-year coaching of Nlr. .lames
Stewart, assisted by Klr. Cieorge Nlihal. Handling
the middle-sizers, the Reserves, for the second
straight year, was Nlr. Powell Nloorhead.
The six-won, six-lost record of Coach Stewart's
"players of tomorrow" was good. The team quality
was high, and some future talent was uncovered.
The Reserves, who play their games as a prelimin-
ary to the Varsity's, didn't have too much to complain
about. Coach Nloorheads aggregation DUI together
eleven wins against only six losses.

cal Schools, Supreme Day, for an entire week previ-
'ous to the official date of its founding, has become a
tradition among students and faculty.
ln the spring of I9-PS, from Nlay I7 through Nlay
Zl, the campus saw a life-size, exact-scaled replica of
the Freedom Train, including facsimiles of its his-
toric documents: an all-student Stuart Tower exhibi-
tion of work from departments, called the Guild
Fair: and a hobby show, displaying some of the teach-
ers' avocations. All were part of the spirited celebra-

tion culminating on Supreme Day, the annual observ-
ance of Techs real commencement as an Indianapolis
high school, although it had been founded four years
previous. On Supreme Day outstanding students re-
ceived awards at the l-Ionor Day assembly.
Each fall the l-1-O underclass and senior sponsor
rooms vie for the position of top roll room for having
filled the most -lunior Red Cross boxes, packed and
ready to go to European children for Christmas.
Supreme Day week and Red Cross box-packing
come once each year: the very most is made of each.
Art, shop, drafting, and publications exhibits formed the
center of the 1948 Guild Fair exhibits in Stuart Tower.

lXlEETING INFORMALLY EVERY OTHER WEEK, Book
Club members took turns telling about favorite books
or stories they had read recently. This year they dis-
cussed many well known stories such as THE SNAKE-
PIT, AFTER BIANY A SUMMER DIES THE SWAN, and
RoMEo AND IULIET.
By discussing current and past literary favorites,
they strive to become better acquainted with different
literary styles and to stimulate interest in good books.
The fall semester, the club participated in the an-
nual Music Carnival by sponsoring a fortune-telling
booth. Spring semester, a dramatic reading of Shake-
speare highlighted spring activities. Later, a picnic
was held so club members could really "get acquaint-
ed." Miss Susannah Milner is the sponsor.

Studies department in November, 1936, the Social
Science Club, at one time called the History Club,
has throughout its comparatively young history main-
tained its purposes of enriching and adding interest
to Social Science courses, broadening the contacts
which pupils with Social Science problems have, de-
veloping leadership, and promoting good fellowship.
Meeting during the fall semester on alternate Tues-
days, with Mr. William A. Kimberlin as sponsor,
club members reorganized their club. They amended
their constitution, planned special club meeting pro-
grams, and took off-campus Held trips to points of
interest about Indianapolis.
Because Mr. Kimberlin was transferred to Broad
Ripple High School, the club disbanded in the

Each morning in the Arsenal basement, a small
group of students came together to join in daily
prayer and fellowship with Mr. Arthur C. Hoffman,
sponsor. Besides their daily worship, the Bfible Study
group held a regular club meeting weekly so that
members could take time to study and discuss the
Bible and to learn to interpret the teachings of God.
During 1948-'49, in its second year of existence, the
club membership increased greatly.
After election of officers in the fall semester, the
club experienced a successful year, sponsoring pro-
grams including such speakers as Reverend W. F.
Bruckner, pastor of the New Bethel Baptist Church,
meeting to sing religious songs, and discussions con-
cerning the Missionary Conference at VVinona Lake.
Greatest club undertaking was the collection of
Bibles and Bible texts to be sent to foreign lands.
"Sal1'f'le, amirz' et Ill7ll.lTll'fH was the greeting of
Latin Club members as they met on alternate Tues-
days of every month with their sponsor, Miss Irene
Each semester the club plans special lectures and
programs aiming to acquaint Latin students with
Latin literature and civilization. Keeping these aims
in mind, the group presented a technicolor film, pre-
pared specially by the American School of Athens, at
the annual party for Latin Club seniors. In recogni-
tion of National Latin Week, the club sponsored a
lecture by Professor Bruno Mienecke of the Univer-
sity of Nlichigan who is nationally known for his
work with the classics. Professor Mienecke's topic
was "Music Among Ancient Greeks and Romans."

Any boy or girl interested in nature is eligible to
join the Nature Study Club. This group strives to
promote greater knowledge of and love for birds,
llowers, trees, and other forms of nature.
This past year three students have completed proj-
ects which may be displayed at the Indiana Junior
Academy of Science next fall. The club has collected
and mounted wild flowers and insects which will be
inter-changed for similar collections with other
schools. One school in Dallas, Texas, and two in
South America have expressed interest in this project.
Club members learned even more about nature
when they took hikes during the different seasons.
Mr. Howard Cook is sponsor.
XVith an enviable itinerary, the Home Economics
Club has been a traveling club, this semester, having
made interesting visits to Butler University, local
hotels, local department stores, the Bell Telephone
Company, Scottish Rite Cathedral, Union Railway
Station, a Pullman coach, and the Indiana Medical
Center. The purpose of these visits has been to ac-
quaint members with the systems of organization.
As a club, this group strives to help in school proj-
ects, to advance the ideals of the department, to pro-
mote worthy social life, and to promote high
standards for home life and young womanhood.
Members of this group are girls who have been en-
rolled in home economics courses.
As the welfare project for this year, the group pre-
sented an Easter basket to each of the pre-school-age
children in the Guardianls Home.

The Music Club has branched into two groups,
this past year: the regular Music Club and the new
"Record Roundersu Club. The original club spon-
sored faculty' and student recitals, and delved into the
mysterious realms of music. The group also aided in
the success of the Music Carnival by selling tickets
and maintaining a booth "on the Midway."
Meeting every other week, the Record Rounders
gather to listen to their favorite records.
Top project for the year was the collection of con-
tributions from music students for music stair paper
and pencils which were sent to Bremen, Germany.
Sponsor of both groups is Miss Louise Swan.
Extending its services beyond school hours, the
Service Club sponsored or took P2111 in many projects.
Comprised of students who spend one or more pe-
riods each day acting as messengers or doing "school
service," club members meet every other XYednesday
to plan such ahfairs as the "Freshman Mixer."
Other projects included the packing of overseas
gift boxes for the junior Red Cross which Miss
hleanette Tobey sponsors: and, as their part in the
Music Carnival, sponsoring several boorlqs. During
the year this group conducted llower sales with pro-
ceeds going to special projects of the school.

club had received its license for an amateur radio sta-
tion from the Federal Communications Commission.
This past semester, members who held radio opera-

room, and made contacts with stations of the world.
This past semester, movies were shown demonstrat-
ing the functions of radio transmitters and receivers
in order that club members could receive a better
