In reality, each day, each hour, each minute, down to the most insignifi- cant measure of time, is carefully budgeted to ac- commodate the different phases of studies and extra- curricular activities. (circled ike L iock . . . ... So goes the day at Ripple. From the first bell at 8:45 to the last second of ninth hour classes, stu- dents absorb a variety of knowledge from the conju- gation of " to be " to the formula for trinitrotoluene. Late afternoon sends Rip- plites scurrying from after school club meetings home- ward, eagerly awaiting to- morrow ' s hours at Broad Ripple. 3l80(i: DL 1944 f i r ciPiun -Xrj tne rJ au (I3e i e eaind , . Peals of laughter, whistles and shouts greet each new day as the students of Broad Ripple start eight more hours of readin ' , ' ritin ' , and relaxation. On rickety bikes and in old tin lizzies, in bright orange busses and swaying street cars, they come. Armed with books and a bit of wit, they laugh at the rain, snow, and hot weather, as they recall the occurrences of yesterday and anticipate the events of another day at high school. They joke and chat, shout, and boast as they come. Early morning finds them with the same warm spirit of cordiality that is Broad Ripple. Some are sleepy, with eyes swollen and voices squeaky, but all is gaiety and fun. With the glee of carefree youth, they come, wel- coming another day with fond friends, another day of fun and enlightenment, another day at Broad Ripple. " Work House! " calls out the street car conductor as lads and lasses unload, eager to start the school day. Looks as if It must be a good joke Doris Howard and Patty Smith have at their locker. Margaret St. Clair carries an early morning message from the office. lanet Scofield applies to Miss King for an excuse blank. Satisfactory, Janet? " Sorry, unsatisfactory! " Inevitably as first hour bell, teachers are busied each morn- ing supplying excuse blanks for students who have been absent on previous days. Originating on the home room teacher ' s desk, the little white office slips have a strenuous day, passing into many hands until they reach their ultimate desti- nation, the office files. Margaret Augustine, Robert Dunn, and James Harris put government lessons into practice by drafting a student constitu- tion, directed by Mr. Beaman. Smiley, Roesch, and Stadler study the intricacies of elec- tricity. English Vlli ' ers await inspira- tion as Miss Carter oversees their literary efforts. a ciAS in i ippiited ywbdorb nowiedi w T The principal aim of Miss Carter ' s advanced literature class is to give students a foundation for college English, The different periods of English history are studied in regard to the influence they had on the writings of authors from that country. Some grammar was included and some compositions close to master- pieces were produced. At the present time with the United States fighting for the principals which our nation upholds, Broad Ripple ' s government class has taken on new importance. Knowledge of the functions of our national, state, and local governments is necessary to every high school student since they are the future law makers of America. For a definition of such terms as dynamo, rotary motors, and specific weights, ask this semester ' s twenty-one super scientists. They ' re from physics class and may be expected to turn the con- versation to Madgeburg hemispheres any time. During the autumn of 1943, the shop carried on regular repair work for 75 model planes for the navy. In January they went back to the rudiments of machine shop sheet metal and wood work instruction. Mr. Cooksey demonstrates the fine art of operating a milling machine to Carl Brooks. i iuSd in S c eddLon Sharing the semester for nine weeks with Home Nursing, the Nutrition class, taught by Mrs. Rich- ardson, offers girls the most recent information on proper diets, function of food essentials, and the conservation of food in wartime. Given: One geometry class To Prove: Student plus theorems equal geometric knowledge Plan : Daily tests Proof: Ripple ' s mathematicians excel with highest grades at the end of the year after a course of many angles and circles. Stress on physical fitness is the wartime and all time activity of B.R.H.S. gym classes. The Home Nursing class, designed to give senior girls the Red Cross emergency training, enables them to treat minor injuries and illnesses at home. The instructor is Mrs. Wamsley, the school nurse. " A stitch in time saves nine " , so goes the old adage. Ripple ' s clothing classes not only abide by that rule, but also do some ad- mirable creative work. Under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Johnson, the girls learn and practice sewing, becoming costume design, and color harmonies. After diligent and energetic effort the girls may proudly say, " Yes, I made it myself. " If a picture could produce noise as well as height and width, the shot of a typing class would undoubtedly release a bevy of tap- tap, clickety-clack, and the scrubbing of many erasers. Miss West, Miss Schaufler, and Mr. Harvey, commercial teachers, have worked so patiently with students that the latter never t36 6y495 x In gnd sflnb nimd mdhx (translation: get their fingers on the wrong home keys). That Spanish is the coming language is proven by the senores and senoritas enrolled in Ripple ' s Spanish classes. The Pan- American drive for greater unity between our country and South America is backed wholeheartedly by these students. yrli J reieni " Attention, please, " requests E. Stahl as Merrald Shrader mans the control board and Joan Freyn and Tom Grey await cues in Ripple ' s Monday-through-Friday broadcast, the home room an- nouncements. Miss Connor can always be found directing from the sidelines. 10 an d.,,.Arccounleci for . . . 11 K. V.

Deftly manipulating the many " strings " attached to the inner work- ings of Broad Ripple, he is responsible for, among other things, the smooth running routine of extra-curricular ac- tivities.

We were eagerly fac- ing a new life, an adventure; this was high school. The dreams of becoming leaders sped through our active minds. The frosh cindermen showed their ability early when they won the interclass track meet. Next fall, after that verdant shade which typifies freshmen had worn off, we returned to Ripple as sophomores. The fellows gained places on the varsity squads in major sports, and later in the season proudly received their BR ' s. Everyone was giving his all to extra-curricular activities and studies. A number of sophomore names filled berths on the high honor roll. There was just one blot on that year, the infamous day of December 7, 1941. During the second semester of our junior year, the whole class met in Home Room 1 to organize. After a vigorous campaign, never to be equalled, we elected Gerald Huff, president; Betty Jean Barnhill, vice president; Mary Schreiber, secretary; and William Green, treasurer. The junior skat- ing party, our first financial venture, was a big success and fun for everyone. On May 28, graduating seniors were our guests at the big event of the year, the Junior- Senior Reception at the Riviera Club. Seniors — and just one year left at Broad Ripple. How full that year has been. We were school leaders, some with the respon- sibility of being class officers, club heads, and staff members on the Riparian and yearbook. January saw eighteen seniors leave our midst, in the first mid-semester graduation in the history of our school. With pangs of pride, but still sadly, we watched some answer Uncle Sam ' s call for men. These past days have flown by in rapid succession. There have been the Senior Play, Mother ' s tea, yearbook, the reception (guests this time) and bacca- laureate and graduation. As we remove our caps and gowns and step into a new world we, the Seniors of 1 944, look back on our high school days at Ripple as the happiest days in our life. 15 PAUL AAMOT JACK ADAMS ELINOR ALLSWORTH BEITY JEAN BARNHILL ROBERT E.

" Standing room only " was the ushers ' refrain as Broad Ripple presented its annual vaudeville, the " Ripples of ' 44 ' on March 24, in the high school auditorium. A variety of colorful and amusing acts was headed by " Round Up Ranch " , a musical western directed by Elinore Allsworth and Rhea McGoldrick. " Mystic Interlude " , an amazing and enter- taining magic show by James Zervas, followed. A review of important events at Broad Ripple for the year was seen in " Animated Headlines " , written and directed by Joan Yarian and Mary Jane Coleman. " Miniature Minstrels " , a black-face review, with Jackie Lawson and Betty Jean Barnhill as student directors, provided a fitting climax for the school ' s yearly theatrical venture. Throughout the show, music was furnished by the pit orchestra, directed by Carolyn Harvey. 40 uu6e6 ime Jo to be C ntertaineci , . What was a huge success on May 1 9? Why the Senior Play, of course! " Tish " was written by Alice Chadwick and directed by Mrs. Ruth Herin and stu- dent-directors Rose Marie Steinbach and Mary Jane Coleman. The leading part, " Tish, " was taken by Betty Barnhill. Lizzie and Aggie, her sisters, were played by Elinor Allsworth and Imogene Klein- schmidt, respectively. The supporting cast was composed, in part, of Rhea McGoldrick, David Pfleiderer, Wilma Hutchinson, and Fred Verderosa. 41 RIPPLITES EXCEL IN MUSIC, TOO The band, directed by Mr. Owen Beckley, strutted its stuff dur- ing the halves of the football games last fall. In their snappy uniforms they lifted the spirits of the " Black and Orange " fans. They also supplied the musical background for several audi- toriums. The orchestra, also under the baton of Mr. Beckley, provided accompaniment for the " Ripples " and was featured in the Spring Music Festival, given to boost the Spring War Loan Drive.

Reason: look at the score! Rockets soar over their oppon- ents. 44 i ik With several returning lettermen forming the nucleus, Coach Ed Diederich ' s Rockets came through a ragged football schedule with five wins and three losses. Ripple opened the season with an impressive win over Richmond, 18-0, but lack of size lost the battle the following week to Sey- mour by a 19-0 score. Sheridan and the Deaf School fell before the surging tide of the Black and Orange as they won by scores of 26-0 and 18-0, respectively. Flack ' s ninety-five yard run against the Deaf School was one of the season ' s highlights of offensive play. Ripple administered one of the upsets of the year as they con- quered Cathedral 6-0. Bill Green scored the Rocket ' s lone touch- down, but the game was highlighted by the wonderful perform- ance of the Ripple line as they turned back the Irish time and again. Manual stoppe d the Rockets ' winning streak, however, gaining a 12-0 verdict. Ripple bounced back to take the War- ren Central Warriors in stride 26-0. The long-awaited contest with our North Side rival, Shortridge, proved disappointing as the Blue Devils won without trouble, 27-0. Ripple fans regret the loss of Jack McGail, Bill Green, Harry Lay- field, Joe Hoberman, Ralph Meckling, and Bill Kurman through graduation, but prospects for next year ' s team look even more promising. Don Laurimore, junior tackle, has answered Uncle Sam ' s call. 45 Varsity basketball squad. Row I — Allen, Chafee, Chapman, Mc- Cloud, Danielson.

Chafee, and The ' 43- ' 44 edition of the Rocket hardwood squad hung up one of the most impressive records in recent years, winning twelve out of eighteen scheduled games. The losses were to such teams as Tech, New Augusta, Noblesville and the traditional rival, Shortridge. High spots in the hardwood program were a 35-24 victory over Howe, the sectional champs; the 23-21 triumph over Lawrence Central, and a 45-32 win over the Southport Cardinals, conquerors of Tech and Shortridge. The Rockets concluded the hardwood season with a sectional defeat, by a powerful Tech five, that ended 35-29. Ralph Chapman led the Rocket quintet in scoring, with 134 points. Losing only two seniors, John Martin and Bob Danielson, the hardwood five is expecting a very successful ' 44- ' 45 season. Although beset by mid-year difficulties, this year ' s team truly came through in real Ripple fashion. 46 ina l J usheibuit i eiand . .

" The Rocket nine, under the direction of Coach Baird, took their usual con- ditioning exercises this spring as they rolled and raked the west lot in prepa- ration for the diamond season. Spring rains proved to be even more of a handicap than usual, but the boys, led by Dee Baker, came through with a fair season. " ON YOUR MARK, GET SET . . . " Enjoying the largest turnout in the history of the school. Broad Ripple cinder men, under the direction of Coach Mordie Lee, turned in a most successful season. With the exception of Bill Miller, the only returning letterman, the major portion of the squad were inexperienced underclassmen. Considerable ability came to light, however, which gives promise of success in the next few seasons.

Although the Ripple cagers won only three out of the games • scheduled, a few natural athletes were discovered. In football, however, the story was a bit changed. The Frosh romped up and down the gridiron to the tune of three wins and two defeats. Winning from a strong Southport squad and de- feating the Manual Redskins twice, two mighty clashes with Tech and Shortridge ended in a disheartening defeat of the freshmen. In track the freshmen were outstanding this year, Joe Daniels being one of the leaders. He broke the school shot put record and the 440-yard dash. Also among the freshmen track team accomplishments was the breaking of the half-mile relay record at the Southport relay on April 26. 49 FRESHMAN BASKETBALL Left to right — Kneeling — Coach Peters, E.

THE EXOTIC COMMONPLACE I nestled down, a book in hand, And read, and dreamed, and wondered too: Exotic was that other land. While mine was common; charms were few. The rain still fell; the trees were bare; While heart ' s rarest child dwelt there. Then suddenly my book I dropped; I stared, and gazed, and gasped, amazed. The fire before me cracked and popped, (Strange beauty in the light was mazed) I heard the snap, and hiss, and roar, Saw flames leap up and gray smoke soar. The colors were of brilliant hues; Amber, and red, and dazzling white, Purple, and gold, and glorious blues, Swirling and dancing with delight. Pine needles glowed, then limply fell Like tinsel balsams know so well. The tantalizing incense cast Its mystic spell with weird, strange powers. ' Twas then I learned the charm, at last, Of lands I ' d thought so like ours. I had indeed come face to face With the exotic commonplace. BETTY McKINLEY ENGLINSH VIII A RIDDLE I am the beginning of all man-made things — All the good things, the great things, the gallant things men do. I am the power that makes men to act — To create, to discover, to construct, to compose. I am the first thing a great man must find. To inspire him with courage; to incite him to invention. For man is the doer of his deeds every day, And 1 am the one who dares him to do them. I am an idea. SAM NEWLUND ENGLISH VII 50 A WAR BOND IS A WEAPON Even in the days of King Arthur with his magic sword, no one ever dreamed of a weapon that could be handled by every man, woman, and child; one that would serve to unite all the people; one whose use would create a spirit of intense loyalty, challenging every citizen to give his best to his country; a magic weapon, with power to create contentment in time of peace. Here and now America has this marvel. A War Bond is that weapon. It is the cannon announcing the opening of a battle in the South Pacific. It is the bomb which blasts the German Empire. It is the pistol, the rifle which the sturdy American " Yank " carries at his side. It is the gas-mask which protects him from the hazards of chemical warfare. War Bonds are the battleships manned by the greatest Navy in the world. War Bonds are the jeeps; they are the tanks; they are the " Flying Fortresses " and " P 38 ' s " . A War Bond is a tool. It is the hammer used by the Seabee as he drives a nail into the framework of a lookout tower on some faraway island in the Pacific. It is the machette used by the Marine as he cuts his way through the dense jungles of the world. A War Bond is the instrument panel which guides the flyer into some un- known landing base at night. It is the parachute which carries him to safety. It is the " walkie-talkie " , the radar, the sound detector of a submarine, the logometer of a great battleship. This weapon is an effective source of defense on the home front. It can be handled easily by small children, who by its use, learn early the lessons of thrift and loyalty. With it they defend themselves against selfishness and ignorance. This weapon effectively combats the feeling of utter helplessness felt so strongly in war time by those who have a burning desire to go out and do something, but are forced to remain at home, it is a source of consolation to wives and mothers left alone. It offers a chance for them to participate in the combat. When the treaty of peace is signed, a War Bond will be the one weapon which will not be laid aside. It will be used to guard America against that deadly enemy " Depression " which can ruin a nation ' s whole financial system if left unhindered. Every loyal home will draw it forth to combat anxiety and want. To utilize this weapon now is not only the duty of Americans but it is their high privilege. Let every man, woman and child who wishes freedom to achieve a speedy victory, rejoice that he may have a part in it. A ten-cent stamp or a $1000 bond, on the battle front or at home, in the hands of a strong man or a tiny child — a War Bond is a weapon.
