LOGAN Out of a deep feeling of admiration and respect, as a token of our appreciation for the generous patience, kindness, wisdom, and high standard of living which he has shown to us, we dedicate this Rosennial of 1938. Page five ftf From the grades through junior high and finally to high school, many a student has tread his way. Much knowledge he has gained and many friendships he has won. Thus as he gazes upon these snaps of former schools, memories of by-gone days flow freely to his mind. Page six ' " V ' - i ;fe " zi FACULTY %s CONTROL E. J. LLEWELYN Superintendent For twenty-one years this truly great per- son has held the office of Superintendent of Schools. Through his able supervision and untiring efforts, the Newcastle schools have found their place among the best. His under- standing, enthusiasm, and sense of humor have made for him many friendships that will not die. However, no man can work alone. It has been only through the efforts of the mem- bers of the School Board that he has been able to accomplish these feats. To these persons, who have quite aptly controlled the affairs of the city schools, all students owe a vote of thanks. RAY L. DAVIS President As a man of talents, ability, and fairness, who is held in great esteem by all who know him, he aptly fills the office of President of the Board. CLAUDE STANLEY Secretary Efficiently but effortlessly, persistently but patiently, this great business man, who has given loyally of his time and wisdom, continues his years of service with enthus- iasm and understanding. MRS. W. H. BOYER Treasurer New therefore bubbling over with ideas; A woman therefore under- standing of lesser prob- lems; A mother therefore in sym- pathy with the students ' needs; Everyone hopes her career will be long and happy. Page eir ht GUIDANCE Joseph A. Greenstreet " A just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations, " such is the advice of Joseph A. Greenstreet, a grand person who at all times lives with the benefit of oth- ers foremost in his mind and works toward that aim. A friend, indeed, to every one, Mr. George C. Bronson leaves a word with each sen- ior, " Consisting of more soul than substance, more ideals than realities, with hopes, joys, and sorrows we paint the picture called Life. " George Bronson R. H. Valentine Principal In nineteen hundred twenty-one an ear- nest young man assumed the duties of prin- cipal of Newcastle High School. Down through the years his patience and wisdom have made him a true friend to all. He, together with the cooperation of the deans, has been able to guide many students through their four years of high school, and out into the world. To these five leaders go three cheers and a vote of thanks for their assistance. Clara Westhafer Miss Clara Westhafer, for- ever proud of, forever work- ing with her girls and boys, gives this final advice to the seniors, " Be thankful every day that you were born an American with all that word entails. " Always ready, willing to be of assistance, whether it be with advice or with wisdom. Miss Fern Hodson says a parting word to each senior, " Live up to the best that is within you.

Page twelve CLASSES Page fourteen Candid Camera shots of seniors! Myth of " dignified " seniors exploded. Intimate views of the unsuspecting victims. Here ' s the human side revealed to the world ' s startled gaze. Seniors have informal moments! They are really not much different from the rest of the students of N. H. S. OFFICERS President Charles Ken- nedy was chosen because of his all ' round popular- ity and ability. Secretary Betty Mahin is everything a secretary ought to be and some- thing more. Vice-President William Guyer is dependable, steady, and willing to do his share. Treasurer Martha Lea Field is capable, trust- worthy, and a real busi- ness woman. R. H. VALENTINE, Senior Class Sponsor In the fall of ' 37 Mr. Valentine assumed the responsibility of directing the class of ' 38 to the finishing line. The four officers, representing the class, and he have brought us to a place where we have now finished to begin. All of us have known him for years, yet our acquaintance measures but a small part of his total service to N. H. S. During his eighteen years as principal he has gained experience and sympathy which is always at our command. He has been a real friend to us always, but talents we had not known cams to our attention when he became our class sponsor. He brought to the senior organization that finest kind of leadership — sug- gestion, not command, speaking only when necessary. He made it our organi- zation. He brought, too, a font of new ideas, the inspiration to blaze new trails. He presented to us many plans, new to N. H. S. senior organization, that he had gathered from commencement activities in other places. We wish to thank him, here, for three years of general guidance that made his office a place where students were given helpful advice for continued improvement, not a scolding good only for temporary discipline; three years of general supervision, and one year of close cooperation which made, we believe, the Class of ' 38 one of the best of senior classes.

Our first year here was essentially one of discovery, fitting us for our future roles in this school. The next fall we came back sophomores, now acquainted with the demands of our school world, and ready to take our places in school life. The following autumn we returned, worked through another year, and this spring we had the honor of becoming the first junior group in the history of Newcastle High School to become organized as a class. Under the able spon- sorship of Miss Fern Hodson and Mr. Fred Goar, three hundred twelve of us voted and selected the following officers: Morton Goldberg, president; Bob Modlin, vice-president; Mary Phyllis Scott, secretary; and James Richey, treasurer. This is the history of the class of thirty-nine; we may well be proud of our record; but let us make sure that our future surpasses our past. JUNIORS Reading from top to bottom.

During our yesterday we struggled and suffered in that most lowly of all positions — freshmen! But that struggling and suffering toughened us, and lowly beginnings lead to good foundations; so we did not suffer long. We soon learned our place and determined to make the most of it. We conquered those problems of programs, unknown teachers, and home rooms; and gathering up all our courage, we proceeded to get acquainted. When we looked around us we found that this school was a good place to be, so we earnestly worked to become good citizens of our high school. Last fall we returned with a feeling of coming home — not invading a foreign land. We chose our places in the various school activities and set about im- proving ourselves and our surroundings with that boundless enthusiasm of the sophomore. Two hundred sixty-eight of us have survived the various tests and trials of our years here. Our work in this school is but half done, so we look to our tomorrows for the fulfillment of our plans and dreams of today. Superior Sophomores! No one need worry about them, every face shows a student who, half way through, knows just what he wants, and some of them think they have it. In other words they ' re just know-it-alls, getting al- most unbearable. We would do some- thing about them but we are going so soon. We ' ll leave them to N. H. S. They ' ll get along.

In fact, we were generally ignored and left to find our own way about this huge and confusing building. But time moved on and we freshmen lost our shiny, new look; we finally reached the place where some people actually confused us with sophomores! After this we relaxed and turned to more advanced matters; we dared ask for library permits! By Christmas vacation we felt truly experienced. We compared notes on the teachers and planned what we would do next semester. In January we received our first report cards from the high school; and the next day we grinned at the new lot of freshmen, but the new ones learned quickly, too, and with this now seasoned addition we number three hundred twelve. We are looking forward to and planning for our next three years in this building. Watch for us! Shy freshmen come out and pose! Of course, they aren ' t exactly dignified, no- body expects it. Here they are, presented in the un- changed, uncensored, un- touched snapshots. The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! Judge for yourself their first appear- ance in the Rosennial. Bash- ful ways, little sense, but you do get fond of them. FRESHMEN Page thirty-three Reading from top to bottom.

H. S. activities are found both educational and entertaining groups. The Choral Singers, the girls ' basketball team, and typing groups are three types featured here. Part of the Rosennial Sl ff is found at one of their many tasks. In the activities of N. H. S. every type of ability and interest can find some outlet. y ACTIVITIES Shortly before the close of the first semester, Miss Rucker, newly appointed faculty advisor, chose the members of the Rosennial staff. Almost immediately things got underway; senior meetings were held and arrangements were made. With the beginning of an amateur snap contest, which was sponsored in order to secure more pictures for the Rosennial, all students became " amafotog " conscious. The scratching of pen- cils and clicking of cameras soon told that work had really begun, and the book took a definite form. We, the staff, representing you, the senior class, have finished our job. With you and your ideals fore- most in our minds, we ' ve tried to make an annual of which we hope you will be proud. But now our work is done. The Rosennial is yours!

" The name of this chapter shall be The Newcastle High School Chapter of the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools. " Such is an excerpt from the Constitution of the National Honor Society. The object of this chapter is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, stimu- late a desire to render service, promote worthy leadership, and encourage the development of character in the pupils of Newcastle High School. The local chapter is now five years old and its memb ership this year was eighteen. Miss Westhafer, as Dean of Girls, serves as its efficient sponsor. Although during the past year the Honor Society has enforced the hall patrol and sponsored the big brother and sister act, this organization is more honorary than active.

Phyllis Ray Sec.-Treas Mary Phyllis Scott STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council was organized in 1925 for the purpose of fostering self government in N. H. S. This government is composed of representatives chosen from each home room by the vote of their fellow students. The representatives meet with the sponsor and faculty adviser, Mr. William E, Jones, for the purpose of sug- gesting and enforcing any necessary improvements that would promote inter- est and spirit in our school. These officials also endeavor to create a better understanding between the faculty members and the student body Page thirfy-nine m MUSIC HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR The newest organization in our nnusic department is the Choir, consisting of both boys ' and girls ' voices. One of the main req- uisites is that each student be a member of his or her respective Glee Club. The Choral Singers, a group of twelve girls, are also members of the Choir. Among their public appearances during this year, were con- certs at the Baptist Church and the State Choral Festival at In- dianapolis. According to the critics, this is the most outstanding choral group in the school, and has very good prospects of becoming more so in the future. They even have a waiting list. They are accompanied by Sarah Ellen Cluggish. SENIORS Elinor Brown Sarah Ellen Cluggish Dorothy Garner Jack Hayes Charles Kennedy Martha Lewis Rosalie McWilliams Mary Polk Ruby Ridgeway ORCHESTRA In the instrumental section of our Music Department, the High School Orchestra is most outstanding. This group, under the direction of Miss Dorsey, is called upon to furnish music for our leading school activities. It provided entertainment for the dramatization of " The Hoosier School Master " , and " The Whole Town ' s Talking " , the Senior Class Play, besides playing for other Senior activities and the Christ- mas Program. A small group from the orchestra included among its activities, a concert for the Riley School Commencement exercises. The Orchestra is looking forward to a large program next year when there will be several additions from the Junior High Or- chestra. DEPARTMENT BOYS ' GLEE CLUB For the first time in the history of N. H. S. our mascuJine vocal- ists have been organized into a Boys ' Glee Club. They were or- ganized at the beginning of the first semester when the music department was enlarged. The Glee Club is now composed of twenty voices. The first public appearance of the Boys ' Glee Club was made at the first meeting of the High School P. T. A. They are antici- pating many more such occurrences as they are rapidly improving. This group, as are all of our musical organizations, is under the direction of Miss Dorsey. They are accompanied by Martha Lewis. SENIORS Elinor Brown Sarah Ellen Clugglsh Wanda Connerly Pauline Eilar Elsie Frampton Dorothy Garner Charles Kennedy Martha Lewis Rosalie McWilliams Mary Polk Dorotha Shortridge Martha White Sarah Jane Wooten GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB Besides being the largest group of girls ' voices ever to be pre- sented by N. H. S., this Glee Club has better voices, in general, than ever before. The Girls ' Glee Club, consisting of ninety-three voices this year, sings annually for the Senior Baccalaureate Services. An- other one of the girls ' annual appearances is at the Music Festival at Ball State Teachers ' College in Muncie. An innovation this year for the club was its featured appear- ance at the newly organized District Choral Festival at Knights- town in May. The girls, under the capable direction of Miss Dorsey, were accompanied by Sarah Ellen Cluggish and Dorothy Wayman. Page forty-one PHOENIX STAFF The members of the Phoenix Staff of the first semester, 1937- 1938, completed their work with satisfaction because they up- held the ideals of Newcastle High School through their literary efforts. In October, Mary Polk, Mary Katherine Ashton, Mildred Reed, and James Chance were sent to the Indiana High School Press Association convention held at Franklin. When these students returned, they had secured much valuable information that aided them in the publication of the Phoenix. Questions and sugges- tions of the staff members were welcomed by their advisor and sponsor, Mr. Greenstreet, whose never ceasing aid also contrib- uted largely to their success. To the best of their ability they emulated the standards set forth by the Indiana High School Press Association Code of Ethics.

All the student journalists who worked ear- nestly in an effort to publish a paper equal to the high standards set before them by the first semester Phoenix Staff feel that they have succeeded in every way. The Staff believes that it owes what success it has attained this semester to the splendid cooperation of both the student body and Mr. Greenstreet, faculty advisor, who has at all times showed his efficiency and his devotion by his unlimited services to the journalists. Page forty-two BOOSTER CLUB With a boost from the Boosters, the Trojans acquired a great fighting spirit. The Booster organization is one of our " pep " groups which puts more life into our school spirit. From this group of feminine athletes comes our often-vic- torious girls ' basketball team. Their win over Sulphur Springs was their first victory. There has been a Booster group in Nl. H. S. for a number of years, but this is the first year it has joined the list of N. H. S. clubs. They met in September to elect their officers and yell leaders. Since that time, they have taken an active part in school affairs.

President Manual Roth President Robert Modlin Vice-President. .Arthur Turner Secretary-Treasurer. Don Mastin THE VARSITY CLUB The Varsity Club was organized during the fall of 1 937 under the auspices of the various coaches of Senior High School. The club consists of all boys who have been awarded " N " ' s as a result of their long and persistent work on the gridiron, hardwood, and cinder path. The purpose of the club, as is stated in the constitution, is " to promote a closer union among the members of the varsity squads of each sport. " Election of the officers is held on the first Monday in January of each new year. Meetings are held once every month. Page forty-three SCIENCE SOCIETY In its successful efforts to educate the students of N. H. S. scientifically, the Science Society has brought to the school many interesting programs. These educational and entertain- ing features, consisting of three motion pictures and several interesting lectures, have been attended by many students and teachers. This organization has been carried on for several years in the high school under the sponsorship of Mr. Bronson, head of the Chemistry Department, and Mr. Hodson, head of the Physics Department, and Mr. Hodson, head of the Physics Department. Membership in the Science Society is open to all high school students. SCIENCE SOCIETY President Martha Lewis Vice-President Thelma Allen Secretary Jack Grunden Treasurer James Forrest LEATHER LUNGS President Dick Kessler LEATHER LUNGS Among the outstanding clubs of our school is a group of boys known as the Leather Lungs. When this organization was created in 1926, it aroused much interest among the students and has continued to do so up to the present time. The Leather Lungs has for its chief aim " another victory for the Trojans. " The boys and the sponsors, Mr. Fessler and Mr. Leslie, are always ready and willing to back the Trojans with vocal as well as moral support. Another outstanding fea- ture of this club is its willingness to cooperate with all other clubs in boosting the Trojans — our boys. Page forty-four TRI-HI CLUB The Tri-Hi Club — now in its fifth consecutive year — was organized in December of ' 33 by a group of ' girls with Miss Elizabeth Phillips as sponsor. They are now sponsored by Miss Vivian. The club membership is now to full capacity with every member render- ing her best toward the club ' s ideals which are to develop each member mentally, spiritually, and physically and to render school and community service. The Tri-Hi members are willing workers and true boosters for N. H. S., rendering community services by helping with Red Cross Drives and similar local affairs. One example of their true charity spirit is seeing that many unfortunate little girls receive dressed dolls at Christmas. The Tri-Hi ' s are a lively and progressive group of girls interested in girls and their welfare. TRI-HI CLUB President Martha Lea Field V.-Prcsident... Joanna Archibald Secretary Jean Myers Treasurer Helen Schuffman Hl-Y OFFICERS President Bill Guyer Vice-President Joe Payne Secretary Charles Kennedy Treasurer Jack Hayes HI-Y CLUB The New Castle Hi-Y Club was organized in 1928 with the purpose of creating, maintaining, and extending throughout the school and community high standards of Christian char- acter. The code is " Clean Speech, Clean Living, and Clean Scholarship. " Under the able leadership of the two faculty sponsors, Mr. William E. Jones, Mr. Fred Goar, and the Y. M. C. A. sponsor, Mr. Whittenbracker, the club has accomplished many out- standing things this year. The boys made money by selling refreshments at the foot- ball games. Come one! Come all! Have your portrait drawn by this industrious art class. While you are pos- ing, the cooking girls will serve you or the boys will make you a foot stool. The home management girls are here to ma ke you comfortable, and the sew- ing girls will entertain you with their style show. The first aid girls are here to aid the amateur cookers. VOCATIONS HOME ECONOMICS MANUAL TRAINING In line with the modern trend to empha- size the practical phases of education, Home Economics was made a major subject this year. Classes met daily instead of weekly and thus, much more was accomplished. Full credit is now given in Foods, Home Manage- ment, Hygiene and Home Nursing, Clothing, Textiles, and The Selection and Care of Ready-to-wear Clothing. These many departments are under the capable guidance of Miss Wright and Mrs. Fisher. At the beginning of the second semester, 1938, Manual Training was made a major subject instead of a minor. This is only one of the many opportunities that are to be given to the boys of N. H. S. This new technical expansion program that is being planned for the boys will more than likely be in effect in the near future and will include a new up-to-date printing course, agriculture, and others. This expansion program is under the di- rection of Mr. Pitcher. Page forty-six Do you care for a play or an address? In our N. H. S. " Little Theater " may be found exotic her- oines and handsome heroes in many exciting scenes. Or if you prefer, when the stage has been cleared, there may be " silver tongued " orators who will appear and give you the address of the evening. Or perhaps you would like two debate teams to decide some im- portant question of the day. My, what an excit- ing evening! SPEECH DEPARTMENT The year 1937-38 has been one of the most active years of the Speech Department, the major activity having been the celebration of the Horace Mann Centennial. The Dramatic Section sponsored, as its main feature in the Centennial pro- gram, " The Hoosier School Master " , a three-act dramatization of Edward Eggleston ' s novel of the same title. This play was under the direction of Miss Rucker and Mr. Burr, with Mary Polk and James Forrest playing the leading roles, supported by a cast of twenty-seven students. Mr. Burr ' s dramatic classes gave twelve public productions during the year, including " Fiat Lux " , " Two Gentleman of the Bench " , and " Sweet and Twenty " . The Public Speaking Section entered several contests throughout the year. Among these were the Rotary contest in which Joseph Payne placed third in the district. In the State Oratorical Contest at Wabash, Morton Goldberg placed second, giving him the privilege of participating in the National Con- test at Wooster, Ohio. The contest in honor of Horace Mann was won by Morton Goldberg, Page forty-seven The spirit of N. H. S. smashing relentlessly forward across the chalked greensward, fighting courageously up and down the hardwood, straining to the last ounce down the stretch, triumphing with the grim swish of racquets, driving with marked determination along the fairway, heralded in victory, honored in defeat: This is THE SPIRIT OF N. H. S. Page forty-eight v.A ' H ATHLETICS COACHES Stephen " Grix " Baker Wilbur " Strings " Allen The versatile member of our coaching staff. He oversees the fortunes of the thinly dads and capa- bly takes the responsibil- ity of Trojan football and basketball reserves. " Strings, " a Trojan hardwood luminary of old, guides the destiny of our basketeers with a cool mind, steady hand, and a calculating foresight. The faculty and student body of Newcastle High School are duly proud of those individuals who comprise the coaching staff. An enviable aggregate of coaches is ours. We are fortunate in having one of the most capable and well- known groups in the state to represent our athletic department. Their diligent and cheerful work, combined with high ideals of sportsman- ship, has resulted in a record of success and achievement. Always overcoming the many obstacles that confronted them, always reaching for a higher goal, they have instilled in their proteges an extremely valuable spirit of persistence. Their untiring efforts and con- stant spark of enthusiasm, their eagerness and willingness to co- operate are fundamental factors of their success. Perseverance tempered with patience, the desire to win over- shadowed only by their desire to play the game to the hilt and play it fairly. A great responsibility is in the capable hands of these carefully selected few. The task of building character in unison with cham- pions is a difficult one, but we feel confident that this end will be maintained and fostered in the forthcoming years. This is the Trojan heritage. 1 4 , .. Gertrude Vivian A tennis player of great note. In conjunction with her admirable coaching qualities, she has received and maintained the re- spect and admiration of all her charges. Donel Smith A former N. H.

Amassing a total of 135 points against their opponents ' 69, win- ning 6 games and losing 2, with one scoreless tie, they compared equally with the championship aggregation of ' 35. The men of Troy opened the season by crushing a highly vaunted A iderson outfit, 27-6. After completely outplaying Muncie in the first half, the Bearcats unleashed a devastating onslaught that swept the fighting green under to their first defeat. The Trojans rolled to a 35-0 victory over the hapless Rushville Lions. Displaying a concentrated attack, they rode over the Red Devils of Rich- mond, 19-7. The team then rose to the heights as they outplayed and outfought a highly- favored Marion team. They followed this triumph by dispelling a stubborn Connersville eleven, 15-7. The Jeff Broncos, Conference Champs, eked out a heart breaking 7-0 win on an early break. The men of Troy had to be satisfied with a 0-0 tie as Richmond played inspired ball. The team climaxed a brilliant season with an easy and farcical victory over the gallant Noblesville Millers. The job of student manager is a thankless one. Versatility is a requisite; labor is their lot. Behind the scenes these boys are an important cog in the wheel of progress. The plaudits of the crowds are never meant for their ears. When the game is over, their work begins: sorting and cleaning, arguing and helping, praising victory, consoling defeat. Their tireless efforts are worths unrecognized, yet valued requisites to the teams ' success. James R. Keys Earl Cable Poge fifty-one Taking a place among the greats of former years, Man- uel Roth, a stellar, hard- driving tackle, was at his best when the odds were greatest. His was an out- standing will and determina- tion to win. John Bryson, captain and quarterback, furnished the spark that drove the team. He was a canny and inspiring leader. Junior Poling, a willing and efficient worker, was always a stalwart lineman with an- other year to play. Robert Fletcher, an excep- tionally good offensive wing- man, fought his way to a regular berth in his junior year. Pass catching was his forte. Robert Modlin was always a steady and reliable snap- per-back. Reserve a place in the hall of fame for " Bob " next year. Ernest Tidrow, tough as they come, will undoubtedly be a shining light in the Tro- jan forward wall next year. Alva Murray, driving the team to its fullest extent while at the helm, was an- other hold over. " Never say die " was his by-word. James Turner, the out- standing halfback in this part of the state, will reach un- precedented heights, we pre- dict. Kenneth Keckman, handi- capped by injuries, neverthe- less proved his mettle as a wearer of the Green. We lose him this year. Page fifty-two Donald Mastin, a speedy running guard and stalwart defensive man, shone in many games this season. He should go places in his senior year. Sammy Owens capably and efficiently took over a half- back position vacated by in- jury. A vicious ball carrier and blocking back, he re- turns to the fold next year. David Hays, a big bruising sophomore tackle, has two more years to show his wares. A great deal is expected. John " Silent " McDaniels, slowed down by early injuries, came back with a vengeance. This top-notch guard will be hard to replace. Rex " Romeo " Wilkinson proved himself to be an ex- tremely valuable asset to the team. Operating irregularly as guard. Rex displayed a de- sire to play the game. We ' ll miss him. Charles " Pookum " Roper provided the comic relief. The Joe Louis of the gridiron, or so he says, will gallop again next year. Arthur Turner, a big farm- er boy who made up for a lack of reasoning by his pun- ishing plunges through the middle, has two years more of competition. John Rifner, another ripping back, has great prospects for the future. His stout-heart- ed offensive play was re- warded with a promotion to the first string reserves. Francis Good, whose splen- did defensive game and bang-up blocking made him a constant threat to all op- position, is another of the few seniors. Page fifty-three Pha Woods was a sturdy replacement in the forward wall; his continued effort and perseverance made him an outstanding reserve. Robert Bender, an under- study at center, big and will- ing, forced the regulars to extend their utmost in order to maintain their prestige. Back next year. Lawrence Woolf covered the gridiron at a roving guard assignment. His slashing tackles more than made up for his slight stature. An- other holdover luminary. Paul Simerly, after four years of constant trying, fin- ally reached his place in the sun, took over a regular tackle assignment in the mid- dle of the year, and proceed- ed to prove his merit. Kenneth Martin, a big re- liable tackle, although handi- capped by injuries, proved his worth by several sparkling performances. Levi Bunch has that one great attribute, patience. When Levi was needed, he was right there doing to the best of his ability what he was told. More could not be asked. George Williams. When " Goggy " started plunging, the team started rolling. This smashing fullback returns next year. Charles Hays was a senior letterman who just missed. His constant plugging was always an inspiration. Page fifty-four When a team goes down in de- feat, it is not too bitter when you know that that team gave ALL it had in an effort to win. When a team fights to the last ditch, fights until weary limbs can go no more, fights on sheer heart and courage alone and yet the pall of defeat drops again, then thcjt team is not to be con- demned. Disaster struck early in the camp of the Green and White netters. With the unexpected resignation of three letter men, Allen was faced with the huge task of rebuilding the team. Slowly he built, with an eye to the future. The team lost with regularity as teamwork and co- ordination were painstakingly drilled into them. Then sudden- ly, led by Captain Ernie Tidrow, they found themselves; they be- gan to click, beating Logansport 22- 1 7, for their first victory in seventeen starts; then Green- field; finally risin g to the heights by trouncing the State Champion Anderson Indians in a thriller 20- 18. The first ten are all under- classmen. They learned to lose this year and next year they ' ll learn to win. Aided and abetted by a promising second team the future holds great promise.

Marshall Koontz has been a freshman of great merit; we predict an outstanding career for " Coon Dog " . Arthur Turner came up from the reserves to develop into an important cog in the Trojan machine. He has two more years of competition. Alva Murray has been dribbler deluxe, whose smashing offensive thrusts always netted results for this junior basketeer. Ernest Tidrow, captain and guard, a stellar defensive man, exhibited extreme pro- ficiency in holding the en- emy " hot shot " to a mini- mum of points. He is a junior. Robert Fletcher, a lumin- ary on offense, shot his way to a place in the North Cen- tral Conference scoring race as a junior. Sammy Owens, a consist- ent ball hawk and a steady- ing influence when the going got tough, returns next year. David Felix, a persistent and capable player, whose fight was an inspiration and whose effectiveness will un- doubtedly reach a new peak in his junior year. James Turner, a speed merchant and clever ball handler, is another junior. Warren Lewis, whose pot shots were his specialty, and whose spectacular shooting often pulled the team out of a tight spot, is a sophomore with a promising future. Page fifty-six GOLF Under the tutelage of Griz Baker, golf received an unusual amount of interest this season. Attracting a large group of prospective " divot-diggers " , with the return of last year ' s top men, a successful sea- son seemed apparent. The roster of " mashie-wield- ers " was headed by " Dick " Hufford, closely followed by Walter Ruby and " Dick " Kessler. A corps of promising underclassmen, including Kessel, Mor- rell, and Copeland, enhanced the season ' s outlook. Improving teams are gradually bringing golf to the fore. TRACK TENNIS The largest number of boys in the annals of the school responded to the first call for track. Formerly a secondary sport, it is now taking a place alongside that of football and basketball. Its ranks, aug- mented by such sterling performers as Turner, Mc- Daniels, Seike, Roper, Watkins, Staley, Martin, and Felix, promise a season of great achievement. Built around a nucleus of underclassmen. Coach Smith will undoubtedly produce one of the greatest track and field aggregations ever to represent the Green and White. Tennis is a relatively new sport in the athletic program of Newcastle High School. Reinstated only within the last few years, it has taken great strides toward attaining merited popularity and success. Under the capable supervision of M ' ss Vivian, an aspiring squad of netters worked out daily on the Memorial Park courts in anticipation of a successful season. Paced by " Don " Mastin, " Bob " Modlin, and Cortis SeIke, prospects for a victorious campaign, present and future, are in evidence. Page fifty-seven There they go, out of N. H. S.

Page fifty-eight V ■% FEATURES PRESIDENT ' S ADDRESS Friends and Classmat-es: Today, we, the members of the Class of 1 938, have reached the culmination of twelve years spent in the pursuance of knowledge. Our journey has been one on which we are able to retrospect with pride. Scarcely having reached the age of reason, our minds began to absorb and piece together bits of knowledge, gradually organizing those bits into logical and connected thoughts. As we progressed our minds began to assimilate and develop these thoughts. We were becoming educated. In the elementary years our education was extremely general in its scope, and it was not until we began our high school career that we found ourselves leaning toward some form of specialized training. Today is truly an age of specialization. We find those who advocate that too many are being gradu- ated from our universities each year to fill the available positions; however, I believe you will agree that the individual who possesses the essential attri- butes and is properly trained will find his place in the world in his chosen profession. Education does not consist merely of absorption of book knowledge, but it involves the training of the mind to think coherently and logically. Education involves the building of a character that insures reliability, and the develop- ment of a personality that will place the individual ' s chances above those of the average person. In a broad sense education includes all the experiences by which intelligence is developed, knowledge acquired, and character formed. In a narrow sense it is the result of work done by such agencies as the home, the church, the school, and the community. The home is primarily the nursery of the school, which fosters education, and of the church which establishes high standards. A child is born, grows, and enters a school to learn the civic duties of a useful life. Thus, the school and the home must cooperate in the formation of this necessary intelligence, knowledge and character; likewise, the church and the home must cooperate in the maintaining of the high living standards. Then community life, which is the proving ground for the work done by these other agencies, provides many opportunities for the graduates. Our educational institutions have done their part in providing us with the necessary information, and the developing of our minds and bodies to the extent that we are equipped to go forward and take our places in the community. Now, reviewing the twelve years which we have just completed, we find that many sacrifices have been made by our parents teachers, and by our citi- zens in order that we might be here today in cap and gown. To our schools which have trained us, to you citizens who have supported us, and to our fam- ilies who have loved us and labored to make our education possible we owe a debt which can only be repaid by a similar service to others. As future citizens and parents we pledge ourselves to that task. But above all, we owe it to our- selves to grasp our opportunities and direct our efforts toward the develop- ment of clean lives and successful careers. Thus, truly, we finish to begin. Charles J. Kennedy Page sixty HISTORY Colors: Turquois and coral. Motto: " Finished to begin. Flower: Briar Clift Rose. In the fall of nineteen thirty-four, three hundred thirty-four freshmen entered the halls of N. H. S. to start their high school careers. After a year of the common freshmen trials, two hundred eighty-eight survived to become sophomores. This year was hard, for still more fell by the wayside. Only two hundred thirty-four became juniors and had the fun of staging the Prom In the fall of nineteen thirty-seven, one hundred forty-six dignified seniors met to organize the class of nineteen hundred thirty-eight. This year Mr. Valentine was sponsor of the senior class, continuing the guidance that he had so ably given us during our junior year. The following officers were chosen to represent our class: president, Charles Kennedy; vice-president, William Guyer; secretary, Betty Mahin; and treasurer, Martha Lea Field. Committees were appointed to advise the class in its selection of motto, color, and flower. The following chairmen were named: motto, Francis Good; color, Helen Schuffman; and flower, Sarah Ellen Cluggish. This year Miss Juanita Jane Rucker was chosen as sponsor of the Rosennial. She appointed Martha Ellen White as Editor, and Walter Ruby as Business Manager. " The Wh ole Town ' s Talking " , our class play starring Cecil Cunning- ham and Mary Polk, was directed by Mr. Horace Burr, Jr. We leave behind us, we hope, a record of work well done, of time well spent, and of friendships well made. We take with us memories rich in their story of happy hours spent in this building and of knowledge gained here. Whatever our future may bring, our years here will never be forgotten. POEM GOODBYE As we come to the end of our High School days, We say " Goodbye " with a tear To our happy and carefree ways And our teachers and classmates dear. So forward into Life go we, Classmates of ' 38. We ' ll sail like happy ships at sea Onward to meet our fate. So carefully our course we ' ll steer By the chart of lessons learned, The storms of life we ' ll never fear And hope for rewards well earned.

" The Whole Town ' s Talking " concerned the daughter of a well-to-do manu- facturer in a small Ohio town whose father wished her to marry the junior partner in the firm. In order to escape this alliance, the manufacturer invented a fictitious love affair with a moving picture star. This affair set the whole town talking and was climaxed by the appearance of the film star in person. I ' age sixty-two JUNIOR PROM Friday evening. May 21, the class of 1938 entertained the class of 1937 with the annual Junior-Senior Prom. As usual the queen and her attendants were chosen by popular vote of both classes to reign over the affair. This year the honor was bestowed upon Betty Mahin, queen, and Sarah Ellen Cluggish, Mabel Danley, Rachael Durham, and Jean Myers, attendants. From the high school gymnasium, which was bedecked with rose and gray streamers in keeping with the senior class colors, flowed the strains of sweet music played by the Campus Club Orchestra. In the program suggestive of the coronation in England, Pierre Long, Presi- dent of the senior class, presided as King with the Queen and Royal family, which included Wanda Mae Stewart and Don Mastin as Duke and Duchess of Kent; Vivian Wolverton and Bob Branson as Duke and Duchess of Gloucester; George Denton as the Earl of Harewood; Margaret Thompson as Queen Mary; Mary Polk as Princess Louise; Rex Chadwick as the Duke of Connaught; Mar- ian Bowyer as Wallis Warfield and Bill Barnard as the Duke of Windsor. A royal parade, in which the King, Queen, attendants and all other members of the royal family participated, preceded the Grand March in which every one was invited to take a part. A seven ring circus, with Francis Good as ring master, was presente.d for entertainment. The various skits were titled: " Such is Life " , " Riley School- house Scene " , " Believe-lt-or-Not " , " The Penny Scene " , " The Wedding Scene " , and the " Clown Scene " . Those who took part in the entertainment were Mabel Danley, Levi Bunch, Viola LaBoyteaux, Kenneth Heckman, Marion Reavis, Vivian Wolverton, Doris Sullivan, Rosalie McWilliams, James R. Keyes, Charles Kennedy, George Den- ton, Bill Bailey, Bob Branson, Charles Hayes, Crystal Mae Covalt, Willard Davis, Jack Hayes, Thelma Cross, Martha Ellen White, Lucille Harvey, Wanda Mae Stewart, Janet Bergin, Margaret Thompson, Helen Schuffman, Richard Kessler, and Paul Rector. Throughout the evening refreshments were served. MAY FE STI VAL One of the newer senior traditions in N. H. S. is the May Festival on the first Sunday in May, which is sponsored by the Business and Profes- sional Women ' s Club. This year it fell on May 1 , and the gayety of the occasion was enhanced by colorful decorations carried out in the class colors and flowers. An elaborate program in- cluding a May Pole dance, music, songs, and folk dances followed the crowning of the May queen who, together with her attendants, was chosen by popular vote of the senior girls. This year the queen was Margaret Wrights- man. Her attendants were Rachael Durham, Dorothy King, Martha Bland, Sarah Cluggish, and Faye Virgne.
