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.

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.

Sixteen THE RIPARIAN •»▼▼▼▼▼▼ SPORTS REVIEW Football At the first call in September, thirty boys appeared for football practice with Mr. Diederich for their coach. 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 season record of the Rockets follows: Broad Ripple Broad Ripple Broad Ripple Broad Ripple Broad Ripple Broad Ripple Broad Ripple Broad Ripple 14 19 Plainfield Seymour Sheridan Rushville Manual Westfield Shortridge State Deaf 12 19 6 20 27 34 6 Broad Ripple 33 Opponents 124 Won 2; tied 1; lost 5.

Wallace Scott — Junior Half. Frank Bailey — Junior Half ... . ..Dick Foxworthy — Senior Full Don Wendling — Senior Basketball Much was expected of the 1936- 37 basketball squad under the di- rection of Coach Frank Baird, and while the season record of the team was not overly impressive, few of the many followers were disappointed. 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. (Continued on Page Twenty-Seven)
