INDIANAPOLIS, BROAD RIPPLE HIGH SCHOOL R 371805 r v vt I f i ( THE RIPARIAN OF BROAD RIPPLE HIGH SCHOOL INDIANAPOLIS - - ( MAY 26, 1937 BROAD RIPPLE HIGH SCHOOL Stands for Education and Culture of the Individual Student Enrolling m here, Offering Him Opportunity for a " Broader, Richer, Human Service. " ?Q ' anfit Two THE RIPARIAN A t YESTERDAYS OF FOUR YEARS By TOM HINES THE senior graduate meditates. Recollections of high school years appear before him. How " green " he was when he entered as a freshman with his seventy-four classmates four years ago. A new sense of the seriousness of things enveloped him, as he listened to instructions. Timidly he had entered the auditorium on that first of his high school days. He had paid close attention to the words of that tall, important, but kindly man as he gave directions concerning study-slips, lockers, lunch hours, room numbers — all of which were bewildering to him. He was determined to make good. — Classes the next day. The teachers didn ' t scare him; he really liked everything. — The first school party; he wished he could dance; his mind was in such a chaotic condition. It is amusing now! But he had made friends. It was during this year also that the grand football field opening took place. What a thrill when the ban d played the school march and everyone stood and sang! Then the weeks drifted by, being filled mostly with mental effort and report card records, punctuated only by brief moments of recreational activities and sports. Gradually, he became used to it — then came Christmas vacation; after that his first cram- ming for tests, — and suddenly the fall semester ended. The next term was a dream — warm days, strolls on the campus — by the river — hours on the tennis courts, and lazy, lazy days which too soon brought that semester to an end. Autumn introduced a more confident person, one who could bear more responsibility. But responsibility was needed, for the tasks were harder, when studies included geometry, world history, and Caesar. — Good times were enjoyed at parties in the gymnasium — recrea- tion room which had been made from the old auditorium. It was disappointing that the gym wasn ' t regulation size, so we could hold games here, but as Coach Diederich said, " It ' s a fine social room. " Games were attended elsewhere, grades were made and another year closed. The third year brought an increase in the extra curricular activities, — he could be a member of the football and basketball varsity teams — a renewed interest in studies; he began to see now how much he would like to learn. Perhaps this keener delight in every- thing was caused by the beautiful addition to the west of the building- — somehow the school was more inspiring in its new appearance. A home economics cottage was opened as the pride of the school — the only house owned by a school in Indiana, where home- rnaking is taught. Reluctantly, the old East Hall has been discarded. It was of no more use — only as a pleasant memory of days past. This year marked the fiftieth in the history of Broad Ripple High School, and the " Golden Annual " was published as a symbol. The class was organized with the election of officers — Ralp Kelly, president; Doras Cranfill, vice-president; Maxine Roberts, secretary; and George Clark, treasurer. Preparations for the Junior-Senior Reception were fun-busy days! — far more interesting than those of the past. The Southern Plantation party held at the Riviera Club in honor of the 1936 class is one of the most beautiful memories. But all good things must end, and this year was no exception. Then came year four, bringing busiest moments yet, for now he was a senior! Problems, problems, and more problems! Work, work, and more work! Expenses, expenses, and more expenses! The election of class officers, selection of class colors, class motto, having the annual pictures taken! Publishing the year-book and financing it — work, but fun. The rehearsing and practicing for " Guess Again. " The Junior-Senior reception, — this time as a guest. And, oh, yes, — new faculty members during these years, Mrs. Stuart, Mr. Baird, Miss Johnson, Mr. Stahl, and Miss Dauner. Where could choicier persons be found? Class Day! Last time as pupils to play and dance in the gym where so many happy times have been enjoyed. May 30, a real Memorial Day, — our baccalaureate services; all of us sitting together as a class, to sing and think as the minister spoke words of advice and wisdom. Then the big day — hours of nervous waiting, rehearsal, diplomas, scholar- ships, the tense moment — and then it was over! He and his contemporaries are now pre- pared to meet life and its troubles, and assuredly, they enter the world, no longer expecting protection — they are prepared. A t Nineteen Thirty-Seven Three THE BROAD RIPPLE SPIRIT By BETSY BOWEN The spirit of friendliness, informali- ty, kindliness and good will pervad- ing Broad Ripple Hgh School is due to the work and personality of the beloved principal, K. V. Ammerman. Mr. Ammerman is a man of high ideals and deep human feeling. His understanding kindness always has made him endeared to the student body and teachers. During the fourteen years of his principalship, the enrollment in the high school has increased from nine- ty-four to more than five hundred; the teaching staff from nine to twen- ty-two. In 1935 a twelve-room addi- tion was added to Main Hall, and the cottage was opened for the use of home economics classes. The office which is always open to pupils is sought voluntarily by many because of their desire to seek Mr. Ammerman ' s advice. During lunch periods, pupils enjoy his ming- ling with them in the halls and gym- nasium. He is present at all of the school activities. He is able to call every student in the high school by name. Several years ago Mr. Ammerman gave a motto for the school, which dwells actively in the mind of each teacher and each pupil, " Broader, Richer, Human Service. " ' When his advice at the beginning of each se- mester is added to this, " Be where you ought to be, at the time you ought to be there, doing what you ought to be doing, " a philosophy for happiness and success in life has been given each person passing un- der influence of Mr. Ammerman. 72004K ( f •V SENIOR CLASS 1937 FIRST ROW— Left to Right SHIRLEY TALBOTT— A frank but retiring young lady who speaks well and does much.

XXX MAY IT NOT BE CHANGED! The class of 1937 may be the last to graduate from this school as Broad Ripple High School. Much is being said concerning a change of name.

Nineteen Thirty-Seven Eleven SURVEY OF YEAR Fiftieth Anniversary On the evening of November 1 1 , city school officials, alumni, par- ents, former teachers, and friends paid tribute to the fifty years of Broad Ripple ' s service as a high school. Four of the class of ' 90 were present. Girls dressed in " costumes of the years " greeted the more than 500 visitors. In the receiving line were Principal Ammerman and Mrs. Ammerman, Ralph Kelly, president of the student council; Mrs. A. R. Chapman, president of the Parent-Teachers ' club; Mrs. Stella Richardson, an alumna and teacher; and Edgar Stahl, presi- dent of the alumni association and now teacher at Broad Ripple. English Two new courses have been included in the English course at Broad Ripple. An advanced com- position cl ass was organized in January with Miss Dauner as teacher. Students enrolling have attempted all forms of creative writing. The other new course is one in remedial reading for first year pu- pils, and is taught by Miss Carter. Virginia Menikheim won the school ' s contest, sponsored by the Hayward Barcus Post of the Am- erican Legion. The work of three students was accepted for publication. Poetry of Harless Wagoner and Marion Wilson was printed in the India- napolis Star and " The Scholastic, " and an interview by Ralph McCoy was used in " The Indiana High School Press Review. " The library has been in charge of Mrs. Stuart. Many books were given this year by Miss Winifred West, Miss Helen Jacoby, Mrs. W. W. Thornton, Mrs. Fred King, Mrs. George Edwards and Mr. E. S. Westervelt. Librarians were: Virginia Men- ikheim, Margaret McAnally, Vir- ginia Millis, Pollyanna Thomas, Juanita Robi nson, Phyllis Hyde, Virginia Brown, Jane Stettler, Lucia Burrows, Jeanne Gass, Mar- tha Cubert, Jeanne Smith, Irene Westervelt, Sarah Crooks, Dorothy Steck. Mathematics A change in the mathematics program went into effect last Jan- uary. All students entering high school are enrolled in general mathematics. The classes are then divided according to progress of the pupils. One class continues in general mathematics; the other takes more algebra. Increased interest is being shown in higher mathematics. This may be due to the plans of students to enter business fields, such as architectural design, busi- ness administration, and all kinds of engineering. History The United States history stu- dents have enjoyed for the past year the use of their weekly news- paper " The Weekly News Re- view. " During the political cam- paign months, recitations became quite heated over major problems of the day. Scrap books of cam- paign literature were kept. In the social studies classes, speakers from the Kiwanis Club spoke to pupils concerning var- ous occupations about which they wished to learn. Latin Students of Broad Ripple for the first time entered the state Latin contest, winning second place among the schools of Marion County. Pupils making best class records, thus earning the right to be the school representatives were: Rebecca Irwin, Frances O ' Con- ner, Jane Brown, Dick Minnick, Wayne Thompson and Thomas Wood were elected chief consuls, with Dick Minnick, Kenneth Tres- ser, Martha Kemp, Joe Dawson, Catherine Blackwell, Jane Brown, Phyllis Pennington, Murray Rudd, Tom Mitchell and Mildred Synder as assistants. Romance Language This department has increased in number of classes and number of enrolled students. A beginning French course was offered this last semester. Science During this past year students have enjoyed moving pictures presented in the school by the Chevrolet Motor Company. Mr. McGhehey anticipates the purchasing next year of a moving picture machine which will be available to all departments. There is also a plan for pictures to be developed in the school. The botany department has added equipment and has en- joyed many field trips. Art The art department held a con- test during Ripple Round-up. Rib- bon awards were made for first, second and third places. The beginning classes worked on seascapes and landscapes in chalk, made historical designs stressing color harmonies, and prepared the circus strips, six feet (Continued on Page 13) IH B .

The class in commercial art made twenty-eight posters for the Bell Telephone Company. Three students have done ad- vanced work in oil paintings. Ger- aldine Millikan, Richard Nieman, and Quentin Biddinger. Home Economics A combination apartment din- ette-kitchenette was furnished by the Broad Ripple American Legion Post. Here girls may learn house- keeping along " modern " methods. The school cafeteria was man- aged the last semester by Mrs. Gladys Richey, with Mrs. Richard- son as supervisor. The home economics cottage has been a popular social center, where tea, luncheons and " Cozy Hours " have been enjoyed. An early American bedroom suite has been added to the furniture. Business Increased production in the commercial department has been its outstanding feature this year. Twenty-five hundred tickets, 1,500 programs, a nine page Eng- lish paper, 20,000 copies of mime- ograph sheets, duplicated typing, and script for operetta have been included in the output. The secretarial training class took a field trip to well-equipped offices. The commercial department now has thirty-two typewriters. The classes entered the state contest, in which the Shorthand I class won third place. Girls ' Physical Education The girls ' gymnasium classes have increased greatly in num- bers during the past year. The intra-mural basketball league was the outstanding feature of the year ' s extra-curricular activities. Four teams captained by Helen Stewart, Adele Lobraico, Maxine Roberts, and Lucia Burrows played weekly games. Ping-pong was also popular. Freshmen girls, unfamiliar with basketball were instructed by sen- ior girls in a special after school class. This plan will be followed next year. Shop So large was the enrollment for mechanical drawing, that a new class was formed this year. Mr. Wann states that another will be organized next year, for the study of mechanical and architectural drawing. He expects a blue-print- ing machine for the class. This year Mr. Wann appointed two student assistants in shop and has found this plan successful. The helpers were Lowell O ' Brien and Robert Allen. The Social Program All-school parties, popular as in past years, included a Hallowe ' en Frolic, sponsored by the Orange Aid; Christmas Call with journal- ism class as hosts; Hearts and Circles, planned by pupils of science and mathematics classes, and the Dublin Fair, the money making project of the journalism department. Several after-schooi dancing lessons were offered free to those pupils, desirous of learning " to trip the light fantastic. " Dramatics The dramatic activities of the year opened with the " Bean Fam- ily Reunion, " October 16, spon- sored by the music department and was a program of comedy and good music. Reid Chapman, in an Uncle Ezra disguise, was Master of Ceremonies. A short one-act play entitled " Who Says Can ' t " was given by the speech class. It was given in the school auditorium. Parts were taken by Martha Cubert, Walter Remy, Lucia Burrows, Bradley Reid, Tom Hines, and Opal Shell. The Ripples of ' 37, a vaudeville, was instituted this year. It was given February 25, in the John Strange Auditorium. Six skits, each organized and directed by a student with the help of a faculty sponsor made up the program. The first act, entitled " Cafe of the Little Onion, " was directed by Jay Boyer. The second, " Ripple Coed in King Arthur ' s Court, " a mock court scene, was planned by Dor- othy Jansen. Betty Alice Metsker organized " Yesterday and To- day, " a dance number. " Tumb- ling Toms, " a presentation by the girls ' gymnasium classes, was di- rected by Lucia Burrows. Mar- garet Smith was student director for the " Garden Party, " a girls ' chorus group. The last act, " Star Dust, " was a dance skit, directed by Dorothy McCleaster. Reid Chapman was in charge of enter- tainment between acts. An operetta entitled " A Planta- tion Romance, " written by Mrs. Milo Stuart and featuring the music of Stephen C. Foster was given April 16. One hundred pu- pils of the music classes took part. Parts were taken by Robert Glau- bke, Jeannette St. Clair, Jeanne Gass, Betty King, Jack Cork, Reid Chapman, Mary Ann Deupree, Harry Walter, Betty Hartzell, Sam- uel Dungan and Ruth Snyder. (Continued on Page 14) Fourteen THE RIPARIAN SURVEY OF YEAR The senior class play, " Guess Again, " by Glenn Hughes was the last dramatic presentation of the year. It was a comedy with a small California hotel for the set- ting. Max Shelhorn and Doras Cranfill, as college boy and girl, played the leading parts. Other seniors acting were: Albert Herr- mann, Tom Hines, Robert Robin- son, Margaret McAnally, Virginia Menikheim, Betty Hartzell, Robert Glaubke, Jack Cork, Margaret Smith, Elmer Spencer, Helen Jan- sen, and Elsie St. Clcir. Miss Johnson coached the play- ers. Orange Aid The Orange Aid Club this year sponsored the Cozy Hour, a dis- cussion club for girls. Meetings were held once every two weeks, at which teachers spoke inform- ally on matters of interest to all the group. Miss King was director. The Orange Aid had three par- ties for all the girls of the school and sponsored an all-school Hal- lowe ' en Party. They filled and dis- tributed four Thanksgiving bas- kets, gave toys to Mission children for Christmas, and contributed to the Junior Red Cross Flood Relief program. Officers were Lucia Burrows, president; Mildred Crimans, vice- president; Maxine Roberts, secre- tary; and Mildred Snyder, treas- urer. Miss Carter is club sponsor. Hi-Y The Hi-Y club has been revived under the sponsorship of Mr. Wei- gel. Reid Chapman was chosen president; Vance Wilkinson, vice- president; David Woods, secre- tary; and Albert Herrmann, treas- urer. Student Council The Student Council, this year, organized and developed a sys- tem of awards for yell leaders and student managers. They also insti- tuted several new clubs, two of these are the " Model Ariplane Club " and the " Camera Club. " Officers were: Ralph Kelly, president; Dorothy Jansen, vice- president; Maxine Roberts, secre- tary; and Carrol Combs, treas- urer. Other members elected were: Mary Marie Miller, Fred Miller, Phyllis Ferguson, Irene Wester- velt, Phyllis Pennington, Ray Hoy, Wallace Scott, Harry Duncan. Mr. Stahl sponsored the group. Lettermen The Lettermen ' s Club was or- ganized this year with the officers being as follows: Carol Combs, president; Frank Reese, vice-presi- dent; Ralph Kelly, secretary and treasurer. In September the Let- termen entertained all the fresh- men boys and explained the op- portunities of Broad Ripple for sports. At the interscholastic games, the Lettermen served as ushers. To end the years ' activ- ities, the boys enjoyed their an- nual " feed. " Mr. Stahl is club sponsor. Junior Class The junior class was organized this year with Miss West as class sponsor, and officers as follows: Wallace Scott, president; Harry Duncan, vice-president; Phyllis Pennington, secretary; and Thom- as J. Wood, treasurer. The junior- senior reception was given in the Calvin Prather Lodge Hall, on May 22. Music The number of pupils in the music classes has been larger than ever before. More emphasis this year has been placed on in- strumental work. At the beginning of the fall se- mester, a trio was organized and instructed by Miss Dauner, Mar- tha Cravens, pianist; Irene West- ervelt, cellist, and Lois Rusie, vio- linist. This group has played for many public performances. During the second semester, Miss Dauner had charge of the orchestra also. They gave excel- lent performances at the operetta and the senior play. Members are: violins, Lois Rusie, Mary Ann Blessing, Adele Lobraico, Mary Martha Seeright, Lee Wood, Rob- ert Frost, Frank Cooper; cello, Irene Westervelt; bass violin, Reid Chapman; clarinets, Doris Haupt, Marion Hesler; trumpets, Charles Ingles, James Henry; trombone, Robert Haupt; piano, Martha Cra- vens. The band has made marked progress during the year, instruct- ed by Mr. Hall. Many first year students enlisted and will make excellent material for the next few years. The band ' s playing at the athletic games added much spirit to those contests. Members are: trumpets, James Henry, Charles Ingles, Robert Glaubke, Theodore Westervelt, Helen Stewart, Glen Hart, William Ashley, Joe Doser, Charles Schmidt, Dale Jaynes; clarinets, Marion Hesler, Doris Haupt, Betty Murnan, Evelyn Jones, Herbert Jourdan; saxo- phones, Arthur Gemmer, Thomas Smith; French horn, David Hyde; trombones, Robert Haupt, Jack McGhee, Robert Allen, Robert Herrin; baritones, Robert Raynor, William Robinson; tuba, Roy Gil- lum; drums, William Deupree, Wallace McKelvey; cymbals, Max Faucett. Reid Chapman is student director. More than 100 pupils enrolled in chorus work for each semester. A girls ' glee club was organized for the fourth period. Besides the emphasis on good tone quality, Mr. Hall has placed stress on cul- tivation of pleasing public appear- ance, the gaining of poise while singing. For the Christmas program the chorus classes were dressed in white choir robes, donated and made by the Parent-Teachers ' club. The high light of the year was the operetta, originated by Mr. Hall and written by Mrs. Stuart. The title " A Plantation Romance, " was given for the story which served as a back ground for the immortal songs of Steph- en C. Foster. The Negro camp meeting scene was a par- ticularly fine scene, at which a boys ' chorus was featured. Those students selected for the Golden Singers are: Edgar Hoy, Jay Boyer, Thomas Herrin, Reid Chapman, George Stevens, Crisella Maple, Juanita Robinson, Ar- mand Mauk, Betty Hartzell, and Margaret Smith. Betty Jane Sweetman is pianist. % X X PICTURES SHOWN ARE: 1 . Operetta 2. Golden Singers 3. Band 4. Orchestra 5. At extreme left in bottom row; trio 6.

The team was light, with only four returning lettermen. In spite of this fact, the Rockets won two games and tied one, los- ing five. Chenille awards for the season ' s play were earned by Bill Pryor, Edward Todd, Albert Scott, George Stevens, Harold Ross, Max Shelhorn, Jack Cork, Wayne Thompson, Wallace Scott, Don Wendling, Frank Bailey, and Dick Foxworthy. Other important squad members were: Gene Meishner, Ralph Kelly, Edgar Hoy, Ernest Schenk, Vance Wilkinson. Max Shelhorn and Jack Cork were both mentioned on the all- city squad.

The varsity won five of their sixteen scheduled games, and defeated Manual in the first round of sectional play. Numerous injuries hampered progress, and consequently many games were lost by small margins. These otherwise might have been placed in the win column. Ralph Kelly, who would have played his fourth year on the varsity team, suffered a knee injury in football, and his services were lost for the entire season. Robert Perkins, regular guard, who sprained his ankle several days before the opening game, was kept out of action for the first eight games, while Frank Reese, diminutive guard, was forced to the bench with a leg in- jury for five games. The varsity squad members were Carrol Combs, Richard Fox- worthy, George Clark, Frank Reese, Robert Perkins, Don Wend- ling, Harold Hamilton, Harry Dun- can and Wallace Scott, the first five named being the regular five. Combs, Foxworthy, Clark, Reese, Perkins, Wendling and Hamilton are the departing seniors, and their places will be hard to fill. Combs served on the varsity for four years and was the leading scorer in his senior year. George Clark earned the gold basketball for accuracy of free throws.

P. McGhehey, maintained a fair season record and will furnish good material for next year ' s var- sity. The squad was made up of Ernest Knipe, Fred Miller, Bill Wendling, Dick Minnick, Bob Dawson, Gene Meihsner, Charles Carpenter, Bill Taylor, Bill Bowen, Clifford Burger, Wayne Thompson, Joe Dawson, Eugene Traylor, David Hyde, Edward Todd and Alex Christ. Ernest Knipe, sopho- more, was the leading scorer of the team. These Go-Get- ' Ems defeated Manual, Westfield, Zionsville and Carmel. The freshmen team coached by Frank Baird and Leroy P. McGe- hey established an excellent sea- son record, and tied for the City Freshmen Championship with Shortridge and Tech. They won seven games, losing only three. Much is expected of them in the future. Those who were members of the team were: Alex Christ, David Hyde, Dick Minnick, Bill Taylor, Joe Dawson, George Cor- nelius, Kenneth Tresser and Rob- ert Goff. Christ was the leading scorer of the team. Baseball A revived sport came into the limelight in the spring of ' 37, that of baseball under the direction of Mr. Baird. Games showing plenty of promising material for the com- ing year at Ripple were played with Park and Indiana State school. The diamond, west of the main building, was handmade but very satisfactory. The seniors took many a good thumping at the bats of the varsity in their practice games. The Broad Ripple cheer leaders did a fine work this year. By com- petitive try-outs, directed by the Student Council, Frank Cooper, Vance Wilkinson, and Fred Kur- man, won positions. They prac- ticed regularly and, as a result gave the school excellent perform- ances in new yells and old. Harless Wagoner served as student manager and performed such efficient service that he was given a gold basketball as a medal besides the B. R. letter.

Eighteen THE RIPARIAN THIRTY CENTS By REBECCA IRWIN IF ONLY I have enough, " breathed Tom as he shook a few pennies out of his bank. One by one they fell to the rug. Three five-cent pieces fol- lowed, and then there was no more thin clinking of sounds. Tom had emp- tied the small iron bank entirely. " One, two, four, five, " continued the boy. " Oh, shucks, five pennies and three nickles! I thought sure there was more than that! Let ' s see. " And he rummaged through his pockets, pil- ing a heap of boyish belongings on the bed. A ball of twine, a scrap of paper, a stubby pencil, two nails, a key, a clip, a notebook, a pen-point, a knife and one shiny dime. " I knew I had some more money some place. That ' s the dime Mrs. Graham gave me for minding the baby yesterday. Thir- ty cents. Well, that won ' t buy much. And Mother ' s Day is tomorow. " Tom placed the miscellaneous articles back in his pocket, but carefully transferred the money to a separate one. Then he walked slowly downstairs and wandered out into the kitchen. He found his mother baking and cooking. Somehow, the sight of Mother rolling out cookies and moving about so gracefully in the bright kitchen brought a lump to Tom ' s throat. Thirty centsl Tom called to his mother, telling her that he was going down the street. " I ' ll be back real soon, Muz. " " All right, son, " smiled his mother, as she care- fully set a tray filled with hot, brown cookies on the table. " When you come back, these will be cool, and you may have some. " " Thanks, Mother, " said Tom, almost inaudibly. He fumbled for the latch on the door. Thirty cents! Thirty cents and Mother. The boy sauntered down the shopping street. His troubled eyes peered longingly into each window. There were lots of pretty things, $2.50 and up; $5.00 down, $1.00 a week. Tom saw the candy shop. He could get a quar- ter pound of milk chocolates that Mother liked. But a quarter pound was so little. For thirty cents he could buy about a pound of those licorice baby candies, but then, he liked them and Mother didn ' t. Tom looked at the silk stocking window a minute. They were out of the question. And even the pretty, fancy garters, with ribbon and rosebuds were fifty cents! " Mother would adore those, " yearningly Tom sighed. Suddenly a sign flashed before the boy ' s eyes. Flowers. Tom knew his mother loved flowers. She always had a nice garden in the summer, and dur- ing ' the winter she nursed along a plant or two, coaxing them to bloom for her. Tom walked boldly up to the window. Red roses! Red roses for love! That ' s what he wanted for HIS Mother. A blue- eyed girl came to wait on him. " How much are roses? " he asked carelessly, thinking to himself, " At a dollar a dozen I can get Muz three, and some sprays of baby-breath to go with them. " " Roses are three dollars a dozen, " the girl said. Tom ' s grin faded. " Well, how much are sweet peas? " If he couldn ' t have roses, . he would take sweet peas. Mother liked them. " Seventy-five cents a bunch. " " Well, haven ' t you anything cheap- er than that? " " We have some small plants. What did you want to pay, sonny? " The girl smiled understandingly. " These be- gonias are nice; they are twenty-five. " " Muz has two begonias now, " mourned Tom. " Haven ' t you anything else? How much are those pretty red plants over there? " The geraniums? They ' re forty cents. " Tom ' s heart sank. He fingered the thirty cents in his pocket nervously. Turning away, he said, " I ' ve only got thirty cents. " The girl looked at the disappointed face. Then she turned questioning eyes to the proprietor, who nod- ded his he td ever so slightly. " Oh, sonny, " called the girl, " I ' ll let you have the plant for thirty cents, if you want it. " " Oh, " he gasped, " will you really? I think that ' s great! I ' d like the red one, if you don ' t mind, please. Mother likes red flowers; she says they brighten up the house so. " " Yes, they do, " agreed the girl. " Here ' s a nice one, with two extra buds, " and she was about to wrap it up. " Oh, er, Charlotte, " spoke the proprietor, " just put one of those crepe-paper covers on that plant, will you? " " All right, " smiled Charlotte. " I think a green one looks best on this. " " Boy, that looks fine! " exclaimed Tom. " But I can ' t pay for that! " " Well, you see, " the girl said, " These are ten cents — usually; but not to you, since this is for your moth- er. " " Oh, thank you, " and Tom gripped the plant tightly. " It ' s awfully nice of you to give it to me. " " Muz, oh, Muz! " called Tom excitedly as he ran into the house. " Muz, see what I have for you. " (Continued on Pago Twenty-nine) Nineteen Thirty-Seven Nineteen SWEET SIXTEEN By VIRGINIA LANG ELOISE flounced across the room and flung herself headlong onto the couch. Promptly, she buried her chubby little face in a nearby pillow, kicked her feet high in the air and sobbed. Her young should- ers heaved convulsively as she hugged the pillow to her tear-stained face. Mrs. Adams gave a deep sigh and with a mourn- ful nod of her head, turned her attention to a towel she was embroidering. In a few minutes, she stole a slight glimpse at her daughter and at the sight of several fat tears wallowing lazily on the pillow, said sharply. " Eloise Adams, enough is enough! Crying won ' t get you anywhere. No sir, not with me, it won ' t. You think I ' ll take pity on you, and I usually do; but no, siree! not this time. Now listen here, . . . you might just as well sit up and talk sense, because you certainly are getting nowhere. Don ' t you realize that girls your age " . . . but Eloise, with a sudden alertness that had not been visible for the three hours, jumped to her feet and shouted, " I am six- teen! " Mrs. Adams wagged her head, returned her be- loved daughter ' s glare, and said, " Now, don ' t shout at me, young lady. No use your having a tantrum and going into a fit of rage. I know you are sixteen; (goodness knows you remind me of it often enough) I know you like a good time. Who doesn ' t? But I also know that your father told me to tell you that you either come in at 11:30, or you don ' t go out! He means 11:30, too, Eloise, and not 11:35. " At the conclusion of this speech, Eloise rose and made her way steadily to the door. Once there, she whirled about and with frantic swishing of her arms yelled at her mother, " Sweet Sixteen! I don ' t see anything sweet about it. All I ' ve done and heard since my last birthday has been, ' But, Eloise, dearie, you ' re only sixteen ' . Well, I ' m sick of being sixteen! I ' m sick of being preached at about what time I should come in. Why, mother, I don ' t see how you can sit there and so placidly say those cruel things to me! Don ' t you realize (I don ' t suppose you do though), that they never serve the eats at a party until 11:30; and don ' t you know that the really hoi music is never played until then? " Why, mother, that ' s early. Just because Dad goes to bed as soon as he reads the paper is no sign I have to, is it? " With brown eyes filled to the brim with stormy tears, hands clasped tightly together at her breast, she ran across the room and knelt at her mother ' s feet. There she turned those pleading eyes upward until they reached her mother ' s level gaze. Mrs Adams bit her lips, made a crooked stitch in the hem of her towel, and turned her gaze elsewhere. Eloise, having noticed this sudden change, droned on. " Now really, mother dear, you wouldn ' t want me to stay home all the time, would you? You don ' t want to ruin my whole social career, do you? Of course you don ' t because if you were my only daughter, I couldn ' t possibly say those things to you; and I wouldn ' t make you come home just when the fun begins, even if you were only sixteen. " By this time Mrs. Adams hands were fondly cares- sing Eloise ' s bright curls, and she was murmuring, " O course not, dear, " every time her young daughter paused for a much needed breath. Meanwhile Eloise was aware of the soothing and understanding effect her words had produced on her mother; so she cuddled closer and pleaded again with those pathetic brown eyes. " Mother, dar- ling, won ' t you please talk to Dad? " And Mrs. Adams just on the verge of saying she would, was rudely interrupted by a noisy outburst. Jimmie was home! With a deafening roar he shouted for his lunch and, in the same tone, demanded Eloise ' s where- abouts be made known. As his shouts penetrated the walls, Eloise rose, cast a disgusted look in the direction from which his voice was rising, kissed her mother and said, " Please, Mother dear, ask Dad for me. " Just as she reached the door, it was flung back, and in marched Jimmie. His hair was plastered with mud, and in his grimy fingers he held a luscious fishing worm. At the sight of Eloise pressed against the wall, he gave a whoop of joy and advanced maliciously toward her, dangling the worm proudly in the air. When she screamed, he shouted even louder and laughed delightedly. Mrs. Adams rushed into the room, separated a squealing Jimmie and a very angry Eloise. " Eloise Adams, " she shouted, " Don ' t you ever let me see you slap your little brother again. Go to your room immediately. And furthermore, you either come home when your father tells you to or you can stay home! " Eloise looked in bewildered surprise at her moth- er ' s back, and only at the sound of Jimmie ' s taunting voice did she realize what she had said. The battle was lost. With a look in which icy-fury and mar- tyred self commiseration struggled for supremacy, she walked slowly and silently up the stairs. Twenty THE RIPARIAN MY GRANDFATHER As you sit there in your wicker chair, Arocking all day long, Now saying nothing, eyes a ' dreaming, Then humming an old love song — I sometimes wonder what you think, When your mind ' s so far away; Are you thinking of times when you were young. Or of loves of a by-gone day? Are you dreaming of old Kentucky, And the places you love so much; Are you dancing again to the music From an old-time fiddling touch? I, too shall grow old in the future And sit in my rocking chair, And then I ' ll know what you ' re dreaming As you sit arocking there. —DORAS CRANFILL. (Cut by Betty Applegate) FUTILITY For having failed to be a friend, Make me to spend the lonely hours. For having failed to see the beauty in the sunset, Take from me my sight.

Nineteen Thirty-Seven Twenty-one ▼ V V W V " JUST YOU " You came when skies were cloudy: You made them all look bright; You made me want to live again; And do just what was right. You awakened music in my soul- True happiness I could feel, But somehow I would always ask, " Could all these things be real? " You taught me how to live and laugh; You smiled and I was gay; Could there have ever been a time When all the skies were gray? And now my heart is singing, With a song of pure delight, For you ' ve changed my life com- pletely From darkness into light. —DOROTHY McCLEASTER. HOW I KNOW! Spring is herel How do I know? It isn ' t the robin that tells me so, It isn ' t the buds on the tr ees, or the sap, It isn ' t the grass waking up from its nap. It isn ' t the flowers peeping up through the ground, Or all nature changing to green from the brown, It isn ' t the sun or the warm, balmy breeze, No, I can assure you it is none of these. But in through my window, there comes a loud call, And it bursts on my ear, the cry of " Play ball! " The thud of leather, the crack of the bat, A bystander shouting, " That field- er ' s a gnat. " So it isn ' t the flowers, the grass or the buds, It isn ' t the breeze or the usual spring floods, It isn ' t the birds, or the songs that they sing, But the cry of " Play ball " that tells me it ' s Spring. —FRANK REESE. WHAT THE SCHOOL BELL SAYS It is wonderful what unlike things The school bell says to boys, when it rings; For instance, the laggard, who drags along On his way to school, hears this sort of song. Oh — say — hum, Why did I come? Study till four — Books are a bore! Oh, how I wish I could run off and fish! See! there ' s the b ook, Here ' s line and hook. What ' s that you say? Hurry away? Oh — hum — ho! S ' pose I must go, Study till four. Books are a bore! Then the boy who loves to be faithful and true, Who does what his parents think best he should do, Comes bravely along with satchel and books, The breeze in his whistle, the sun in his looks, And these are the thoughts that swell up like a song, As he hears the bell with its faith- fu l ding-dong: Cling — Clang — Cling I ' m so glad I can sing! Heaven so blue, Duty to do! Birds in the air, Everything fair; Even a boy Finds study a joy! When my work ' s done I ' m ready for fun. Keener play For the task of the day. Cling — Clang — Cling — I ' m so glad I can sing! These are the songs which the two boys heard, When the school bell was ringing, word for word? Which do you think was the truer song? Which do you hear, as you ' re trudging along? —BETTY MURNAN. XXX THE RAIN DROPS Little drops so crystal clear Are music to the Dreamer ' s ear. Ah! to go to bed and sleep, And listen to the dark skies weep. In spring the rain drops patter fast, To let us know that winter ' s past, To make the grass so smooth and green, To serve as a carpet for nature ' s queen. —SHIRLEY TALBOTT. XXX LIFE, LOVE, AND DEATH Living and loving and dying, Life is complete in the three; Smiling or sobbing or sighing, All are for you and for me? Hoping and struggling and striving, Dreaming success by and by; But whether we ' re driven or driv- ing, We live and we love and we die. CHARLES WEISENBURGH. r w w v v T Twenty-two THE RIPARIAN THE WORLD A UNIVERSITY By GEORGE STEVENS II TTENTION of Broad Ripple pupils for " many years has been attracted to a man who twice daily passes the school house, riding an old-fashioned motorcycle. Compelling thought convinced me this man had interest. He is William H. Rhoades, 1581 North Rural street, who teaches draft- ing and mechanics at the Indiana State School for the Blind. Living excluded from other people, Mr. Rhoades is a difficult person to locate; so his cheery " Come in " to my knocking at his back door was indeed a welcome sound, after an hour had been spent in searching for his residence. My host was found seated at his desk in a small room where boxes surrounded him on three sides and a wood stove was at his back. He lives in only one of the five rooms in his house. It is furnished with the above men- tioned articles plus a folding bed and one chair. In the cabinets were bottles contain- ing chemicals and a number of scientific instruments. In the brief beginning to a four hour con- versation, Mr. Rhoades revealed himself as a world traveller and nature enthusiast. His motorcycle, a " Ner-o-car, " has carried him all over the United States where he has collected 10,000 plants that he has mounted and placed in boxes which are stacked to the ceilings. The other four rooms are used for housing his collection, including specimens from many foreign lands. One of the rooms is called his herbarium, and it is truly named. He had built shelves all around the room from floor to ceiling. On these and in the middle of the floor arfi the plants. Many have been sent from ac- guaintances traveling in far places of the world. When asked if he had had this hobby when a boy, Mr. Rhoades replied, " No; as a boy, I was too old for my age. I didn ' t care for such things then. " In another room are cabinets filled with stones and shells, 1,900 different varieties, each classified and named. This self-de- veloped scientist has a high-powered mic- roscope and 1,000 slides. He places no money estimate on his collection, but thinks his plants could be sold for seven to ten cents each. The theory of life motivating all of this is that the world is a great university and its people can be learners as long as they live. Mr. Rhoades cares little for what most people care much. He has attended in his life-time one movie and three dances and has smoked only one cigar. To his guestion, " Now that you have seen the old hermit in his cell, what do you think of him? " I would reply, " A kina of men. " His use of beautiful English, his practice of human psychology, his knowledge of life, on the earth, in the ocean and in the heav- ens left impressions which made me real- ize what are eternal values. The four hours and twenty-five minutes spent in his home are the most inspirational moments I have had. A FRIEND TO MAN He was just a country doctor. He was no more than that, nor did he pretend to be. How vividly I remember the visit I paid him, when I was just a small girl. I can see his musty old library, lined with fat old books. I remember his spotless medical room, filled with curious bottles and delightful odors. I remember the doctor himself. He impressed me as being a jolly, highly educated old gentleman. In his rambling old house at the crossroad, he served one and all. Stray dogs and cats, ragged beggars weary farmers, and even some of the town people came to him. He strove to serve all, rich or poor. His kindly advice strengthened many. He was known for this wisdom, as much as for his doctoring. He died two years ago, leaving pleasant memo- ries of his lifelong service. He was indeed a friend to man. —JEANNE GASS.

Oh, pardon me, why our seats are here; What ' s all that noise, it must be a cheer. Are we real sure we ' re at the right game? After all, this seems to be rather tame. What ' s that contraption; oh, they ' - re headgears, They wear them only to keep warm their ears. By the way, do you like my new hat?

The trees above, that stood aloft Were gingerbread, both brown and soft; The snow so white and clean and clear Was made of sugar all the year. The stream made up of many a creek V as all of syrup smooth and thick; The moon above so full and white Was made of cookies round and light. - 9 I wish these things would only stay The way I dreamed, for just a day. It would be such a funny treat To have the trees and moon to eat! DOROTHY NIEMAN. Scotten ' s C afeteria 5373 COLLEGE AVE. o o o We Appreciate Your Patronage o o o OPEN EVERY DAY 7 A.M.- 7:30 P. M.
