FROM AN ARSENAL, 1865,
TO A SCHOOL, 1954
Yesterday, the seventy-six acres that we
know so well were an Arsenal of war, an
Arsenal ot powder, rifles, tools of battle.
Today, too, our Tech is an Arsenal - an
Arsenal of learning. Its tools are the
tools ot progress - books, ideas, the
budding minds of youth. Yesterday's
Arsenal is only a dim memory - the Tech
of today is a stronghold for the future.

yy THE OLD BARN EXCHANGES
E-E FEED BAGS FOR FIDDLES
.' .,- NV
THE Orchestra arouses memories of our Barn's early days when it plays "Turkey in the Straw."
OUR music library aids the ambitious.
NOT feed bags, but fiddles!
What a story our old barn
could tell of the days when
it housed horses and shiny
carriages, when rows of feed
bags lined its walls! Today,
music fills the Barn. Stately
rows of bass fiddles replace
the feed bags, for the Barn is
the home of the Orchestra.

Ever since its birth in the grim Civil War
Clays, the Artillery Building has had its
own distinctive sounds and odors. Perhaps
it was the cruel, metallic clank ot artillery,
or the sharp, acid smell ot bullets which
made the young Union soldier shudder a
bit as he stacked supplies in the new
Artillery. The Artillery of today has its
familiar sounds and scents, too -the hum
of machinery and tattoo of hammers in
bustling shop rooms, the lunchroom chatter
and clatter, the aromas of pine, paint,
and mashed potatoes. Today's
Artillery is a cheery, busy place.
THE, ...C BA.RR.AC'KS. ... STILL Ecu-so TO MILITARY COMMANDS
' , Years have passed, bringing many changes
M., to the grounds which once throbbed with
military life, and yet the Barracks remains
T unchanged. The other buildings, like people,
have nearly forgotten their past, the
Barracks alone remembers. Here, rooms
still ring with military strategy, and young
men, wearing not Civil War, but RCTC
uniforms, climb the high porch steps and
tread the old halls which echo with
memories of an age gone by.
JUST AS in Civil War days, the American flag is raised and lowered each day by young cadets.
ONCE the Commandant's kitchen, this room now houses the yearbook staff.
Candle-lit chandeliers glistened, flames danced
in the marble fireplaces, and servants labored
over the kitchen cook-stove on the long-ago
evenings when the West Residence, home of
the Commandant, was the scene of many a
gracious party. Although the lights of the West
Residence, today the home of the Arsenal
Cannon, are now electric, dusk often finds
them aglow as harried iournalists strive
to get the paper out "on time."
THE bustling city room of our
weekly staff was a dining room.

TECHITES STROLL WHERE CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS MARCHED
What did they think about, those
soldiers who stepped briskly
along the tree-shaded paths of
the old Arsenal? Did they speak
in hushed, worried tones of
the war's outcome - of the
future? Today, as we stroll in
merry groups down the same
paths, our conversation is full
of basketball, vacations, proms,
tests, parties. And yet, we,
too, think of the future.
TECHITES take time to lounge on the quad-
rangle in the shadow of Stuart Hall.
IT'S time for the bell! Ponting Techites scurry
in and out of Treadwell Hall.

PLEASANT LIBERTY GROVE IS A FAR CRY FROM

RELAXING in the warm sunshine, tour Techites share an interesting book.
"What is it?" are the words
of many a green freshman as
he gazes at the huge mound
of earth between the stadium
and baseball field which
hides the old Powder
Magazine. An air of secrecy
still hovers about the thick
walled building, once a
storage place for powder,
where soldiers, wearing
rubber-soled shoes, walked
softly to avoid explosions.

woodland where Mother Nature rules, and
science students view her handiwork.
Although the Pogue's Run of today
hardly resembles a battlefield, an
atmosphere of conflict and excitement
is often present only a stone's throw
away in our modern football stadium.
Here the thrill of matching wits and
abilities with an opponent is felt, not only
by our plucky teams, but also by the
crowds, whose cheers echo along the
banks of Pogue's Run.

MEET MR. PCDPULARITY, OUR FRIENDLY PRINCIPAL
He's "Mr, Popularity" on the Tech campus!
The most important senior may often pass unnoticed
among busy Techites, but everyone, even the
newest freshman, always recognizes our principal,
Mr. Anderson. What is the magic quality that causes
Mr. Anderson to be loved by students and faculty alike?
A freshman might first be captured by his wisdom and
dignity, but it takes only one glimpse of the twinkling
smile, one cheery "Hello," to convince a new little Techite
that here is a pal, a trusting friend. Mr. Anderson's
secret is a youthful heart!

OUR TECH HAS EVERYTHING
If we were asked to describe our Tech in
iust one word, we would probably say, "lt's
impossible! How can we say that our school
is really many different schools in one -
academic, vocational, technical? How can
we explain that Tech offers its students all
that other schools offer and much, much more
as well? ls there a word that says all
these things?" According to Mr. Webster,
there is. The word we want is "comprehensive,"
and it means "including much." Certainly no
word can better describe Tech where each day
finds students hard at work preparing
I themselves for the time when they will enter
every vocation every profession, every walk

A FRIENDLY greeting means
everything to a new teacher.
When the "freshie" teachers
stood in line to be welcomed by
more experienced faculty
members at the fall tea, they
felt right at home, now, they
are an established part of
our congenial faculty.
HERE'S iust a part of the long receiving line of new
teachers at the fall tea given in their honor.
THE attractive tea table is a popular place, Mrs.
Kilborn, presiding at the punch bowl, soon finds
out, as she serves Mr. Sare and Mr. Swenson.

See that boy in the blue suede shoes who's coming
this way, the girl sunning herself on that
bench, or the fellow lounging on the library
steps? The chances are great that all of these
Techites studied some form of Language Arts
this year. Language Arts is a combination of many,
many different subiects. Our friend in the
suede shoes undoubtedly believes that Latin IV,
starring Julius Caesar, resembles no other course,
and yet Latin, as well as German, French,
Spanish, and our own familiar English are all a
part of Tech's modern Language Arts courses.
So, whether we learn to say, "Si, Senorita,"
"Oui, Mademoiselle," or "Jawohl, Fraulein,"
we're really gaining the same skills. We're learning
to read better, to write and speak better, and
to understand better our fellow-men.
LATIN, withstanding thousands of years of wear and
tear, remains a favorite in the Language department.
DISPLACED teen-agers from other countries, although they are familiar with the
German language, find it interesting to further their knowledge of the language
as they work with young Americans in Mrs. Susanna Underwood's class.

SCCIAL STUDIES CCURSES WIDEN OUR HORIZONS
HAROLD Vaughn, "president" of the U.N., finds that it is not as easy as some
might think to conduct a meeting with eager young "delegates" anxious to
express their opinions on vital questions brought before the assembly.
THE famous United Nations Building, New York.
When we overheard at the Flower Pot "Vishinsky
got a little hot under the collar in his argument with
Lodge," and "He certainly did!" we wondered whether
the United Nations had abandoned its New York
post in favor of setting up headquarters on our
campus. Then we realized that these are the
observations of two Techites who have just witnessed
our version of the UN in action in Miss Katherine Book's
Problems class. Instilled in us by experiences such as
this are an understanding of the UN, the hope of peace
for a world in turmoil, and a love of our priceless
heritage, freedom. We pledge our support to the UN.
We accept our responsibility of maintaining the
American way of life.
"HUNT AND PECK" SYSTEM
GIVES WAY TO PROGRESS
"Take a letter, please." These are the worcls that many
Tech girls - and boys, too, hope to be hearing after
graduation when they take their places as part of
today's busy commercial world. These Techites know
that in our ever-growing nation, keeping the wheels
of business moving is a thrilling iob. Yes, being a
secretary, a typist, or a bookkeeper is exciting, but
such a iob requires careful preparation. Tech's future
secretaries need not worry, however, for they have
priceless opportunities to become skilled in many
phases of clerical work. The Commercial department
trains not only those entering secretarial fields,
but many wise college-bound students as well.
A GREAT many boys take typewriting for, like
Jimmie Beeler, they know that men are con-
stantly in demand as typists in local offices.
OBLIVIOUS of the photographer boys and girls who will undoubtedly be occupy-
ing responsible positions in many downtown offices in a few years are concentrat-
ing on the fundamentals of bookkeeping, under the tutelage of Mr. J. C. Harger.
CURIOUS to know much more about the earth's surface, Carol Frisbee, Raymond
Kriese, Charles Wolfa, James Swain, and Donna Kennedy study contour map
models showing different stages of physiographic development of the land.
WE 0 Where did our earth come from? What causes
mountains, valleys, and canyons? What materials
make up the air we breathe? These are the
questions which are answered for the Techite who
takes one ot the Physical Science courses.
Mixing strange-smelling substances is a regular task
ot chemistry students. Pupils in physics labs
tackle the study of matter and energy, while
physiography students study the earth's surface.
We often see a band of them wandering over the VV E N D
campus, gathering handfuls of leaves, or scouting
the Nature Preserve, field glasses in hand, on
the trail of an elusive brand of Warbler. Who
are they? They're Tech's biological science students,
and they're busy learning about life and living
creatures. Tech students have a choice of three
Biological Sciences: botany, the study of plants and
the services they perform for mankind, zoology,
the study of animals, and biology, a combination
of botany and zoology.
MR. RUTHERFORD is ready to offer advice and Thomas Farson, Norma Lucas, and
Adrienne Gasaway watch with interest as Ronald Meek starts to dissect a fish.
SPEAKING in the language of X's and Y's, Miss Dorothy Carey guides her
algebra class in its daily struggle to master hard-to-solve equations. -
ARCHIMEDES HAD NOTHING ON OUR MATHEMATICIANS
Some of the Techites who enroll in courses offered
by the Math department plan to be engineers.
Others dream of becoming certified public accountants,
and still more simply enjoy working with numbers.
No matter what their goal in life, mathematically
inclined Techites can find courses to suit them on
the sunny first floor of Stuart Hall. Here, Techites,
aided by skilled instructors, ponder problems
ranging in difficulty from the simplest freshman
arithmetic to the deepest brain-teasers tackled
in trigonometry and college mathematics.
CASTLES AND CAMS BEGIN
IN OUR DRAFTING LABS
Designing of homes and machines of tomorrow
is in the hands of boys in today's drafting
classes. Here the universal language of
drafting is taught in three phases: Mechanical
Drawing which lays the basic foundation for
future development, Architectural Drafting,
where boys, working with their own ideas
for home designs, make blue prints, and
Machine Drafting, where problems are the
designing of intricate machine parts. Although
students may not make drafting their
vocation, they find advantage in knowing
the basic ideas of design. Yes, our world of
tomorrow is already being formed in the
minds of our young draftsmen.
MR. N. L. Schneider explains the intricacies of machine
design to Joe Payne in Machine Drafting I.
MR. CLARENCE Rosell helps Donald Stevens perfect
a floor plan in Architectural Drafting IV.

Stewart is always painting posters

FINE STUDENTS STUDY THE FINE ARTS
Tech has an ear for good music and an eye for fine art
Musical and artistic students find Tech a veritable
paradise on earth because it offers almost all courses
in the fine arts field. We put our hearts into our
class work in everything from freshman vocal music
and composing to freehand drawing and ceramics.
Our teachers are most patient for they struggle right
T along with us from the time that we make our first
i feeble efforts as freshmen until we have proved
ourselves successful artists and musicians.
WHEN BOYS and girls in the harmony class, taught by Miss Rosemary McGuire,
complete their course, they will be trained in fundamentals of musicianship.
SPRING chapeaux in the very latest styles are being fashioned in the Millinery class
by Sandra Purcell, Artie Durham, Betty Jo Easter, and Constance Gagen.
We find that keeping hubby

economical budget, and
tailoring suits or dresses in the
latest style are no problems
for a new bride who has

VOCATIONALLY-MINDED YOUTHS LEARN MANY TRADES
"It's amazing!" This comment is a frequent one
among visitors to Tech when they tour our huge shops
and see students learning skills in almost every
vocation imaginable. Even we Techites, who cross
the campus many times each day, often do not realize
the vital job our school is doing for the community

It's hard to describe the thrill of pride and
ioy of a iob well done which wells up in the
heart of a senior when he learns that he has
received membership in the Tech Legion. What
is so wonderful about this honor? It's more than
the material part - the shiny green and white
Legion pin. It's more than being presented
before the school at the Legion assembly in the
fall. It's the satisfaction of knowing that
the three years of doing hard work and doing it
as well as possible, even when the going got
rough, has finally paid off. For those who
receive it, the Tech Legion pin means a dream

WE SENIORS FACE COMMENCEMENT
WITH MIXED EMOTIONS
THE YEAR? I953
We seniors have a tendency to
exclaim, "I just can't wait until
I graduate!" How we regret
this idle comment though, as
we, with tears in our eyes,
leave Commencement and Tech
behind forever. Perhaps on
our way to the Senior Prom,
we will fall silent amidst the
gay chatter of our companions,
as we think back upon our
days here, and we will
give unspoken thanks to the
Tech that has prepared us
so well for life.
ITIS difficult for those who have never attended a Commencement at sunset in the
Tech stadium to visualize the beautiful scene as the seniors, in green and white
caps and gowns, march onto the field to music by the Concert Band.

MR. C. S. Stewart, who has been instrumental in plan-
ning the 40th anniversary exhibit of student work and
the Craftsman's Guild, pauses for a minute to view
the completed project with Principal Anderson.
DR. HERMAN L. Shibler, general superintendent of
Education, turns his attention from the exhibit to
accept from Betty Jane Reed a copy ot the Tech Book
which her iournalism class has revised.
FOLLOWING the monthly principals' luncheon, Mr. Wil-
bur Barnhart, Mr. Joel Hadley, Miss Florence Guild,
Mr. Anderson, and Mr. J. Fred Murphy visit the alumni
art exhibit, arranged by Mr. Richey in Stuart Hall.
SUPREME DAY WEEK..
The date was May 20-22, l953, the
place was the Boys' Gymnasium, and the
occasion was our memorable Fortieth
Anniversary Exposition, an event which
we will recall for many years to come.
Remember the cleverly arranged exhibits,
showing every phase of our life at Tech?
Remember the English department's display
ot top-notch themes and essays, the Math
department's exhibit with its brightly
painted cubes and spheres? Everyone
oh'ed and ah'ed over the huge center
display, a replica of the Tech of
Tomorrow, mounted on
IT TOOK OUR EXPOSITION
MATH, music, history, Craftsman's Guild, all are part of the panorama of displays,
teachers, students, and parents examine to gain a better understanding of Tech's
philosophy and the extensive field of its studies.

a huge turntable. Equally fascinating were the
turntables to the north and south ot the
center which depicted "The Flight to Fancy -the
pursuit of man after an idea," and "The
Master of His Craft." Another highlight ot
the exposition, which was planned and directed
by Mr. Sy Perszyk, was the Crattsman's Guild
Fair, recognizing skilled Techites. The Art
department's contribution was a special exhibit
ot paintings and sculptures by Tech alumni.
FASCINATED by the turntable which illustrates a
"Flight to Fancy - the pursuit of man after an idea,"

"STRIKE UP the band" call the crowds lining the street as the Tech Marching Band advances in
the Centennial Parade, celebrating "One Hundred Years of Progress in Education."
IT'S SPRING, I953
The coming of spring usually means
exciting special events, and last
year was no exception. Two of the
biggest events were the Centennial
Parade and Style Show. In the
parade celebrating the hundredth
anniversary of Indianapolis Publi:
Schools, April 23, Tech not only
had a float but our ROTC unit and
band marched. Then the Home
Economics department staged a
beautiful style show that illustrated
the changes in fashions from
T915 to 1953.
CIVIL War veterans and teen-agers of today, with the Arsenal
Building and the Spirit of Tech as the center of interest, comprise
Tech's float in the mammoth Centennial Parade, featuring 75 schools.
"PRETTY as a picture" are the
girls who parade across the
stage in their spring ensembles
in the 'I953 style show of the
Home Economics department.
WE ARE always thrilled when we see the ROTC on parade at the annual Federal Inspection.
STRIKE UP THE BAND! lT'S FEDERAL INSPECTION TIME
ROWS upon rows of khaki-clad boys march proudly onto the field each
spring for the Federal Inspection of the ROTC. This year the 32nd star
for honor rating, won by last year's unit, was pinned on the flag.

council enjoy the food served them at the luncheon.

WE TALK THINGS OVER AT
OUR I.F.S.C. CONVENTION
Everyone admits that even though teen-agers
are for the most part gay and carefree -
they do have problems. Tech and our S.A.O.
Board played host to fifteen delegates from
each city high school when the Indianapolis
Federation of Student Councils conducted an all-day
conference to discuss teen-age problems on our
campus, October I4. Our own James O'Dell,
president of the I.F.S.C., presided at the meeting.
Features of the conference were a talk on
student councils by Dr. Merle Ohlsen of the
University of Illinois, a tour of the campus, a
luncheon, study groups, and a student mixer.
NEW ORLEANS HASN'T THE
ONLY MARDI GRAS
New Orleans Mardi Gras has
nothing on ours! At this year's
Mardi Gras, sponsored by the
Music department September 26,
we played musical chairs until
we never wanted to see another
chair, ate candy until we gained
two pounds, bought more White
Elephants than our closets could
hold, and had more fun than we'd
ever had before. Climaxing the
evening, Mr. Anderson crowned
Phyllis Miles and Stanley Rice,
both radiantly happy, Miss Treble
Clet and Mr. Bass Clet.

the Grand March.
CROWNING OF KINGS
Why are Tech dances so much fun?
Perhaps it's that air of "Everyone's
having a good time." Our dances are
no place for the "sit in the corner" type
of guy. Our teens are the dancingest
and laughingest in town. We crown the
prettiest queens and the handsomest
kings. After the last dance has been
danced, the last corsage has been
pressed, and the last dance program has
been pasted into a scrapbook, we still
have our dreamy, star-dusted memories.

"The show must go on" seems to be the motto ot
Tech's Music department where taiented
Techites are constantly on the go, planning,
rehearsing, or presenting first-class programs.
And because their presentations are the best, our
special music groups receive many invitations, eac
new adventure. Choir members are still bubbling
over their Illinois University trip, and the
Madrigal Singers found Chicago tops!

AND SO ARE OUR LARGE AND SMALL VOCAL GROUPS
We Techites cannot imagine
football without our colorful bancl
and its spirited marches. All
year long, band boys and girls
find themselves in a whirl at
concerts, programs, contests and
parades. Our orchestra, one
of the state's best, is another
busy group. Those who attended
school dances this year waltzed
to many a "cool" number,
played by the Dance Band. We
were "proud as punch" when
both our Brass Ensemble and
String Quartet received top
ratings in statewide competition.

IT'S FUN AND IT'S WORK EDITING A YEARBOOK
Meet the likable "know-it-alls" of Tech's campus!
These Techites aren't the usual brand of "know-it-all,"
for it's their iob to see, hear, and know about all
the many happenings on our campus. lt's a big
iob, a iolo that often keeps typewriters pounding
and the "midnight oil" burning in the Cannon office
long after classes are over for the day. It takes
many types of writers, each a whiz in his field, to
make up the staff of the weekly Cannon.
Some staffites have a "nose" for a news story, some
have a knack for writing editorials with a punch,
clever, chatty school columns, or eye-catching
feature stories. Still other "Cannon Kiddies" have
the iob of recording, in pictures and words, the
year's memorable events on the pages of the
yearbook where they will remain, a part
of the history of Tech.
STICKY with glue Phillip Roberts and Dick French
wrap the 200 Cannons which are mailed each
week to subscribers and exchanges.

And certainly the boys who write sports
have a breezy style all their own too,
even if they do have trouble sometimes,
remembering those scores! The top-notch

two years are already hard at work
as cub reporters in the iournalism class.

A WONDERFUL SHOWING
Hoosier Hysteria hit Tech full force this year
as we saw our varsity roundballers turn back
Crispus Attucks in the final game of the City
Tournament to become City Basketball Champs.
The Greenclads won twenty of twenty-four
tilts to complete the season record. North Central
Conference foes Lafayette and Logansport
each handed the Greenclads a setback, and
city rival Crispus Attucks stung twice: the
second time being the final game of the
Indianapolis Sectional. Greenclad starters were
team captain Don Sexson, forward, Bob
Kretz, forward, Oscar Ammer, center, Dave
Huff, guard, and Bob Taylor and Carl Meditch
alternated in the other guard position. Not
to be outdone by the varsity, the Reserve and
Freshman teams also became the medium and
small roundball champs of the city. Their
records show a fifteen win and five loss record
for the Reserves, and an eighteen win and
two loss record for the freshmen. Our
'roundballers were truly champs in all
sizes this year.
