Text from Pages 1 - 212 of the 1924 volume:

OPPORTUNITY I am thf I ' citter (if human fate, Molder of laughs and sighs; All of the world I penetrate — Master of dreams am 1. Often uncalled 1 fashion the clay, Mould a new gladness of fame; Often rejected, vanish away — Seldom to come again. To Miss Van Nuys, for many years a member of the faculty of Elkhart High School, whose untiring efforts in behalf of this institution, has won her the highest esteem of all those concerned, we dedicate this Annual. Page Three Published by Senior (Jass of Klkhurt High School Elkhart. Indiana 3[or luorb In editing this volume we have tried to show school life in an illustrated and printed manner. We know it is impossible to please everyone but we have tried to please the majority. For this reason neither time nor effort have been spared in composing this book. So in the following pages of this Annual the Class of ' 24 has endeavored to leave a remembrance of " those days that are gone forever.

" Are we glad that he is a memher of riur (.lass? " Yes. " Tom likes golf and raditts. He calls himself a little hug. Tom ' s amI.)itions are to make the team at college and to invent a liiirlor foothall game as interesting " as the real thing. Xo. Tom. it can ' t he done. ' f thought you knew that football had to have more light than that. ALICE HOSTETTLER " Let us be merry while we live. " .Mice has an " Ulie Oldsniobilc " that . lie surcl can race. The only wonder is that the " eiips " haven ' t taken it away frmn her. Put with one of her smiles focused on them would be hard. " We suggest she take up " racing " at lndianap " ljs t.i m.ikc that pile of mo(ic ' hich she desires. Page Twenty-five ' - 1 w EARL SMITH " Oh, this learning, what a thing it IS. uur eli. mi.st is Earl, who is always seen (Iring up something for rheniistry. He is another one of those rare persons who will help one out when in a tight pinch. I know for I was in his Physics class. RUTH POYSER— •■Rufus " " She has an eye that can speak though her tongue were silent. " Ruth is always ready to start something. She puts life into the dead at our cUis.s parties. Ruth likes nice dates and nice times. She is destined for a great future, she wishes to become a costume de- signer or a director in domestic arts. Ruth seems to he going pretty steady just now, so we would advise Domestic Science in place of the Domestic Art. CHARLES LOCKTON— " Chuck " " Know more than others if you can, but do not tell them so. " President; A ice-President. " Chuck " is one of those rare persons who always comes to class meeting. He is never seen at parties hut is probably occiipied at dancing and other interests. ERMA SUPER— " Erm " " Victory belongs to the most persevering. IIA President; IIB Chairman of Social Committee; IB Vice-Presi- dent; ID Treasurer; Member of Announcement Committee, Annual Xominating Committee, on Annual Staff. By the looks of the number of offices " Erm " has held, you " would think she was sure some hustler. Well, she was and still is and most likely always will be. You should have taken a glance at her report card. It looks like a Penmanship practice in E ' s. Erma likes almost everything and her ambitions are to become a private secretary of some government official. EDWARD CHANDLER— " Ed " " A power for good among his fellows. " IC. IB and lA Social Committee; IIB President; Fair Committee; Annual Staff. Here we have the famous funmaker of our class. Ever a loyal supporter in everything our class does. His favorite pastime is telling jfikes at class parties. He particularly delights in telling the joke about the " dollar and ten cents. " But we have never found out the answer to that one. Ed says his ambition is to get more sleep. My. arf-n ' t he and Lewis Arnold a good pair? Pag ' ; T enty-six MARY ESTHER MILLER " Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low.

Sli.- leaves us in the dark as tn " hat her ambition is. hut Vf know shi ' will aeeomplish much. FRANK NEWELL SH A V E R— ■■Slade " " The mildest manners and the bravest mind. " SoTne of our class never knew Frank and. not knowing; him. missed a great deal. He was an ardent disciple of Physics. He cr uld tell you most anything about Physics but his chief hobby is horseback riding. Frank wants to take up civil engineerin.s. Here ' s to Frank, we ish him luck. KATHRYN LON GSDORF— " Kitty " " Untwisting all the chains that tie The hidden soul of harmony. " IIB Social Committee: Annual Staff. " Kitt ' " is the Paderewski of our class. A ' e all kn ' «. " she can ] lay jiv .y. as We have had the pleasure of dancin.s to it at our class parties. One miglit see " Kitty " most an.v time industriously talking. I guess she would rather do that than anything. She wants to attend the State Normal School and be ome a si-hool marm. LEWIS ARNOLD " A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men. " " Lewif " ' is anutlif r nu-nilter tliat tnust ha ' e lieen sea ft c J . .ni. l-ft- always came to class parties and thfn of a suddfn we had im " hr ic.

This brilliant, wide awake. ev..r acti f t ' iin : man ' s hobby is to sleep and his ambition is t » get more sleep. ' i . MILDRED OAKES— - ' Mid ' " It ' s faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living. " Assistant for Motto Committee: Assistant for Iling and i ' in Com- mittee. Mildred is not only entliusiastic about something- but abiait tnany things. She is especially keen on going ' to basket ball and football games. She is another one of the quiet members of riur class but just the same, we all think a great deal of her. Page Twenty»se n « - t T 1 " ( X K CARL SEILON— " Swede " " The reason why a man who minds his own business succeeds is because he has so little competition. " Another une of ()ur class heroes. We expect great things ,f him -= " me day. Swede like?? vacations, swiiiiniing and eating. M ' e Ijelievo Swede has a most prospective future, he intends to be come a morti- cian or, for the benefit of those that do not know what a mortician is and don ' t wish to take the bother of looking it u]). he intends ti become an undertaker. Carl always did like to put things over on peopl e. " WILBUR MATER— " Mater " " The blush is beautiful but often inconvenient. " " Mater " is a lo ' al member when it comes to class meeting ' s, but wlien it comes t i parties he is not so good. Ho ' ever. A e can account for his absence at parties. His hr)l3by is to be with a certain l Iue- eyed girl, ' e d ' in ' t know what liis amliitit)n is. I)Ut i)erhaps e ean guess. MARY HALLIBAUGH brown -eyed — a dark coquette — But the kmd we like to cherish. Mary just joined our class this year and, sorry to say, she lias not attended any party. It seems as though she always has a date or some social affair when e have a part ' . Alary ' s hobby is tripping ihe light fantastic toe. We hear also that she is quite fond of Lim- liurger cheese. I wonder? FRANK PHILIPS— " Speed " " A light heart lives long. " Chairman tjt Social Coromittee UA. Frank is one of the peppiest members of our class — in for every- thing and an all-round good sport. He is always seen at our parties and class meetings. I should say by the grades he received in f ' liysics he is to liecome a well known ph sicist. HOWARD SNYDER— " Howdy " " A man of sound and composed mind. ' Presideii t Januar.v in .i mie ' ' 2 ' - : Member of Motto C " nimittee : ' inljer of Prom. Committee; IJusiness Manager Pennant Weekly; ack ' 22 and ' 23; Stage Manager of Junior Class Play. Howard, as you can see from the offices he has held, has lleen ery tic;tive member of our class. He is one of these petqile who U do most anything anyone asks of him. t: ne may find " Howd.v " )st any time in the " Pennant Office " just wasting time. There is o a rumor around that he has been taking frequent trips out on airie street. J wonder why? He says he either wants to be the esident of the T ' nitcd States or a scientific Wiz.

" ( ' buck " - as you can see. is a very iirominent meniln-r of our class. He is also the most enthusiastic and interesting " laborer in everything: he undertakes. His hctbby is athletics and it surely looks as if it were. His aiiibition is to hecome an engineer. I ' 3ver Iiody wishes him just loads of lu»k. PAULINE BOWLBY " It is good to lengthen to the last, a cheery mood. " President of English Club. Here ' s a girl that we are proud to say is a member of our class. She doesn ' t say a whole lot but she makes this up by doing it. She ' .- a real good girl, but every niee little girl has her defects, for instance she likes to flirt with chaperons at tlass jiarties. The mean thing. Her hobbies are dancing, traveling, good times and cutting up In general. She ■ants to l econu- an old dry Latin teacher. It ' s all vours. Pauline. RICHARD LOCKTON— --Dick " " A bold, bad man. " You all know " Iiick. " He is one of tliose grave and reverend (? Seniors who cannot keep a permanent seat in the Session Room. Dick is very fond of the fairer sex and 1 suppose that he will be captured by one of them sooner or later. MARY HARDEN — " Mig " " I can ' t help that I am small. " .Mary is a ir.ember of the Girls ' Glee Club, t)rchestra. Band. Music Clulp arid Annual Staff. She likes most to play in the band and orchestra and to attend the games. We are sorry to say that she has a great dislik- for the male sex. She was in the operettas " The :Maid and the Middy " and " The i ' aptain of Plymouth. " Some day she will play I ' n the chautaiiqut platform and we kno v she will not be a fail.ure. CHARLES FORRY— " Chuck " " I ' m framing an artist. Art hath decreed To make some good and others to exceed. " " Chuck " having joined our class lua this year lias been veiy faitliful in .attending meetings liut not so g»iod for parlies. He .says he likes eating, of course that ' s natural Ihave you ever seen a man that didn ' t like it ' . ' ), but we know he would rather draw. He hopes to become a famous cartoonist some day. Page Twenty-nme M V. MARY BEMENDERFER " A good disposition is more valuable than gold. " Social Committee. Mary joined our class just lately and she has heen coming to parties. She is one of the class who will devote her life to enlighten- ing- the ignorant. Yes. Mary is to be a Domestic Science teacher. HELEN HEGE— " Red " " Though i am always in haste I am never in a hurry. " 2B Treasurer. Red has the prettiest hair you ever saw, but that isn ' t the best thing about her, she ' s been a great help to our class. She always attends the parties and is usually the last one away. She has an ear for music although she doesn ' t know one tu ne from another. She adores cream puffs, movies and cheap stories. She intends to become Ford ' s secretary if he wins the ofRce next election. JUNIOR DANFORTH— " June " " Faint heart never won fair lady. " However, if June ' s heart ever ceases to be faini and he enters upon the pursuit he will persevere, yea, verily until the task is com- pleted. He is a very careful, conscientious student who minds his own business — a trait which is sufficiently rare to receive special mention. His ambition is to become a pharmacist. BERTIS BERRY— " Bert " " A lion among ladies. " Social Committee HA. The " Shiek " of our class. Might always be seen with the women. But just the same " Bert " is the most faithful member of our class when it comes to going to parties. His hobby is girls. " Bert ' s " ambition to to be a commercial artist in Paris. MILTON BRUNK— " Mitt " " Have something to say; say it, and stop when you ' re done. " Member of Forum. " Milt " is the yuiet member of our class except when he is at a. class meeting. He is possessed with a good nature and is willing to work. We hope to see Mr. Brunk at the head of a large banking concern. P?go Thirty CECIL BENDER— - ' Cece " " Look before you leap. " " Cece has been a rather quiet member nf our class but neverthe- less his intentions were good. He attended nearly all of our class meetings and was full of pep at our parlies. He failed to tell us his ambition but we understand that he is a working man already, so he has a good start. PAUL MILLER— " Pee, Bee, Em " " Enjoy the present, whatever it be and be not solicitous about the future. " Treasurer HE Class: Basketball ' 2(i and " 23; Class Basketball ' 2tt. Paul is a peaceful chap. He is one of those fellows that show up at a class party in a Ford and usuLilIy has a date with some young damsel afterwards. Paul is a very talkative lad and very thoughtful. Just listen, his ambition is to be a success, and be happy, but not at the expense of others. He likes athletics, grand operas and fanf ' dancing. We advise him to stick to athletics and leave fancy dancing and grand operas alone. ANTHONY MAYS— " Tony " " When one runs after wit he is sure to catch nonsense. " " Tony " , one of the chemists of our class, must have been taught that " children should be seen and not heard. " judging from his activi- ties in our class. His ambition — well, not knowing we cannot say but — we imagine be " ll be the head chemist of some big university. BERNARD KIRBY " It ' s the good reader that makes the good book. " This quiet member of our class has probably read more books than any other one in our class, and yet he is by no means a book- worm. He always attends parties. He is a minister ' s son. Maybe that is why he is so quiet. He is a good fellow, a hard fighter for his principles and ability to win. What more is needed fipr success? MARGARETT OG I L V I E— " M arg " " Not born for the admiration of ail, but for the love of only one. " ID Social Chairman: HP Social Committee; 11I Social Committee; Xom Com.; Annual Staff. Well, to begin with, " Marg " is a real nice girl. This is probably due to her father being a preacher, but " Marg " would lie a good girl anyway. " Marg " is one of those pleasant individuals that like everybody but there is one thing she loves. It ' s an Overland Sport Model. I have heard it said that it isn ' t so much the sport model that she loves as what ' s in it. A hint lo the wise. Page Thirty-one 19. ' 3? e n II ci II t nnudl 1 I ,! JANUARY GLASS HISTORY mtd AM just a wnni-uut minute l.)ouk. Fur four lung ' ears i have ser ed my class faithfully l)ut nuw m} ' daws uf usefulness are abuut over. 1 have been referred to. leafed u er. vritten earned tu meetings, and. } ' es. perhaps, lost mure than any hook in my acquaint- ance. I can remember when I first entered high school. I had been lying in Timmins ' show- case for al)uut a veek and such inacti ' ity was uK.ist nerve-racking to me, especially since 1 had never lain idle previously. But, alas, i soon learned what it meant to lie quiet for one and sometimes two months at a time. Ga -le Helman was the high school girl who selected me frcjm all the other com])et- ing books arranged on each side of me. On m - first page was written the date, Friday, October l. ' l920. Below it: IID Class and then the name of the class sponsor, Mr. Edward Murphy. On my second page, dayle told af;out the first meeting and jr- ganization of the class, and aliout the elec- tion of r)fficers. Since I haxe kejjt these records for man - 3 ' ears, 1 may as well let you see some of them here. The President of the class was Arthur Kellogg; Vice- President, Chas. Lockton ; Secretar}-, Gayle If elman ; Treasurer. Erma Super and Chair- man of the Social Comminttee, Pet Drudge. The class was, then, like a ship without a rudder, fcjr it had no constitution; so Eve- l}nn Mills]jaugh, Chas. Haring, Bob Gar- rett. -Marjorie Evans and George Schuler were a]j];ointed to draw up the constitution. On my ne.xt ]jage. Gayle made note that a meeting of this committee was held at Eve- lynn ' s where the constitution was prepared. The next entr ' Gayle made in me was alifjut another ineeting in the ] " reshman Session, on o emljer 11, when the consti- tution was read, corrected, a few amend- ments made and then accepted. . bout a week after this meeting. Gavle ' .vas walking down the hall with me under her arm. when she met her friend. Peggy Cullins. and such chattering! I really could not make much out of it. onl} ' now and then the words, " .Vrt Kellogg, " " half dollar, " " Sid IMiompson, " each one emphasized by a giggle. But that afternoon, from what J read in Gaxle ' s notes, there had been a l)arty at Evelvnn Millspaugh ' s the night be- tore, where thirty-five members of the class spent the evening in dancing and playing games.

He saicl he had located all of the Class of januar - ' 24 in the stars and that he wrnild show them to me if. 1 cared to see. 1 certainl - did as I had lost track of most of them, so 1 stayed. Shortly after dark we ent to his (tbservatory. Under his magic sjiell I soon began to see more than 1 had e er imagined was in the stars. In the first one I saw a man standing in front of a great, large audience. seemingl in a church, . fter studying 1 made out the face of liernard Kirb ' . one of the brightest members of the class. He seemed to be holding his crowd spell-Iiound and Tony said he had seen him many times before un- der the same conditions. The ne.xt jjerscm was Ross Ort who had cince saved the babies ' lives when he discov- ered that there was milk in the nnlkx " a ' and a way of getting it. The scene then changes and 1 see a large liouse and Ruth Kendall just leaving it with her family in one of Ed Chandler ' s fliv er airplanes. h " ,d has come to ))e to the airplane what l ' " or(l was to the automi )bile. .Ve-xt we see a large college stadium pack- ed with people and a footliall game going on. It is the annual game between Vale and Harvard and we see Coach Tommy Ste- phenson of Vale in anumg his ])layers on the side lines with a contented smile on his face at the way his team is cleaning up Harvard. . nthony then calls my attention to one where a man is just alighting from a fancy limousine on a very crowded street. ' e recognize him as R ert Rierry. and the sign (m the front ot the store into which he goes says " The llerry Chain Stores. Xo. 11. . " . ery liright one then attracts (jur atten- tion and we see Charles Forr}- as owner of the Forry Studios which takes up most of Holl w (lod. , t his desk beside him ve see Frma Super as his private secretary. Looking through the studios we see such renowned stars as Mary HoUibaugh. Charles llaring and .Mice llostetler, all playing the leading roles in their resjjective pictures. We next see a large high school building and in the principal ' s office behind a big fine desk we find Chester Teterson. a princi])al who has achie ' ed a state-wide notoriety. Among some of his statT we find Cecil P)en- der, f ' auline liowlby. Xanal ( ' .arl and Milton r.runk. .M ' attention is then called to a star in which I see Margaret ( Igilxie and Kathr n l.ongsdorf at a small mission school far in- land in China. The ' ha e a large group of people around them and seem to be doing Wonderful things. I next see one in which I find Richard l ockton as the leading man in one of the latest I ' .roadway hits. Xe.xt we see one showing Paris and then we see in one of the music studios and there find Mary Hardin, the best i: upil of Prof. Hanforth. the man wlio made all Paris take Page Thirty-seven ■ i Pe 11 n d 11 1 1 U nnucu 1 1 ,;♦ notice. Also in another Iniilding we find EYel} ' n Millspaugh and her partner, Mildred Oakes. established in a style center and showing- the Parisians how to do things with true American thoroughness, in an- other room in the same Iniilding vc find Helen Hege an l her assistant, Mary Tlmnip- son, in the finest Beauty Shop in i ' ai-is, spoiling the business of all the other artists of the trade, much to their joy and lionor of the Class of January ' 24. Xext we see one in which we again see a church and there we find Charles Lockton as a most Reverend minister of the Oospel and working under him we find I ' aul Miller as the superintendent of the Sunday school and Carl Seilon as one (jf the teachers. I ' aul seemed to be making a great success of his work while Carl held a class of small Imas s]jeechless with his stories. Jn the ne.xt one we see a large loop IkjIcI and there we find L}nton h ' ield as the head bell boy of a large grouyj of ambitious boys all sitting in the lobby, letting the guests take care of themselves. It seems that when the bell rings they argue so long, the guest decides to find the room himself, so their services are not needed. It seems that L ' n- ton got his job by being the laziest one there as he was sleeping when we saw him. Jn the next one we see Frank Sha er as a successful farmer in Illinois. Mis educa- tion was nuich ridiculed when he first ar- rixed theie but now he has turned the tables and he gets a chance to laugh as he has made his land so jiroductive that the other farmers in his neighborhood are beginning to ask him for advice, and Frank, in his good-natured way has helped out all he ci luld. I then started looking for more but . n- lhon told me 1 had seen them all and asked my opim ' on of them. F told him that though the Class of Jan. ' 24 was small it had been mighty in the afl airs of the world and that idd I ' " ,. IT. S. had nothing to be ashamed of in the class it had put out way back in Janu- ary, 1924. Howard Snyder.

" ICverett is one of our bashful lads, but when it comes tcj dr;i ving he ' s a top-notcher.

THEOPHIL HAUSMAN— " Captam Ted " " Love is master of the wisest. " Ted has won two monogranis. and as many letters in football, being captain of this year ' s eleven. He has been one of the most consistent players on the team and it will be a good man that fills his position, tackle, next year.

CLIFFORD EMMERSON M A N N— ■ ' Cliff " " Every man has his gift and the tools go to him that can use them. " Clifford i.s one of our most studious memJters. He says that one of his hobbies is " getting good grades " but we believe that if we ever got half as many " E ' s " as Clifford has, we would make it a little stronger than " good grades. " Besides getting " E ' s " his hobbies iivv farming, and bookkeeping. His ambition is to be come a certified l ublic accountant. LOUISE DENISON— " Fritz " " Be thou fair — M ankind adore thee! Smile and a world is v eak before thee! " l-,ouise joined our class lien we were IJ ' . ' s and since then she has proved our friend and taken an active part in all our class undertakings. She is a member of the Music Study Club. Oh. yes! " Fritz " adores to dance and swim. We have been trying to picture her without her wonderful smile — but it really can ' t be dor;e. Some day Louise wants to be a social secretary, and with her pleasing ways we are sure she will succeed. OBER KEEN E — " Arms and Legs " " The tall, the wise, the reverend head. " Ctber is another one of our " high " minded friends (something like nine or ten feet, so the guards on opponents ' basketball teams lell us). He says he likes basketball, track, sleep, horseback riding, and more sleep. Ober intends taking up electrical engineering at Purdue next year. lONA FOY— " lona Buick " Yes. lone owns a Euick and what ' s more, she uses it.

" Page Fifty ELEANOR PROCTOR— ■•Freckles " " Most valuable articles come in small packages. " Eleanor is one of the class ' smallest members but by no means the least important. She is very peppy and clever and has helped make it possible for the class to have many of its good times, being on the Social Committee during: her Freshman and Junior year. Eleanor is always seen talking and giggling with Carmen around school — but when out of school it is almost always George. She has many fascinating ways and has proven herself able to act. as wa, ' shown by her representation of " Miss Good English " in one of our little plays given during good English week, also in one of the one- act plays given by the Dramatics class, called " America Passes By. " MARION COX— " Coxie. " " A youth there was of quiet ways. " Coxie joined our class at the beginning of our Senior year and since then he has endeavored to show us what Talma, Indiana has lost and we have gained, by being a lirm supporter of all our activi- ties.

Evelynn has not been at the head of all the schoors activities, but she has been the head of a great number of them. She has started almost e " erything in our class and we will not hesitate to give her the credit for ending them. We also give the major part of the credit t ' j her. for the unexpected success of our IIB Fair. In all we can truthfully say Evelynn has been " the " worker of the class. Anyhow. Evelynn isn ' t all work, she likes good times and good eats, and just take it fnnn us that she sure handed out the food at our class parties. Evelynn. without a doubt, will become secretary to the President. How do I know? Well, she says so. RALPH CORNER " Every man ought to know his own business best. " Ralph, although a big fellow, has not been in the " linie light " much during his high school years; nevertheless he has been with us not only in - person but in spirit. His hobbies are talking and eat- ing (?). and his ambition is to be an engineer. MARY ANITA U L E RY— " Molly " " By the work one knows the worker. " Molly is a new member of our class, but she ' s just like all the rest of the girls — she likes to eat chocolates, study physics and go to ■ hurch. Oh yes. and she says she likes to see football games when We win. Ve hope Molly sees a lot of victorious games. Her ambition in life is to go on the Chautauqua platform and become a famous violinist. Here ' s success to you Molly. Page Fifty-one MABEL RUTH ELLWOOD " Sensibility is the power of woman. " Mal»el Rutli is a very ([uiet j irl amund scliool. Yet, she has made herself recognized by her splendid grades. She likes studying reading- and swjmniing — tht-se all go to show that she is a real girl and she sure has good judgement. She was Secretary of our class when a IC and very successfully fulfilled this office. Her one ambi- tion is to g ' o to college. DICK W. PUTT— " Spider " " Behavior is a mirror in which everyone displays his image. " i ick has always l een one of the bufiie.st and most dejiendalde members in the class: never did he say he would do something and then fail to do it — " no, not Dick " — he means business. He served on the social coTiimittee during his Junior year, was head of the HB theatre beneht. which i»roved very successful under his capable man- agement. Dick was in the Junior class play and he was also in the one-act play, " America Passes By. " He was president of the Senior class during- both the lA and IIA terms guiding it skilfully to success. He was also business manager of the Annual. His best hobby is " to be busy " and he ' s always at it we ' ll admit. His an-ibitions are " to be popular with the ladies " — and has lie realized them? Well, we ' ll say he has! MARGARET H AWO RTH— " Peg " " Only one in a million like her.

" We all know that she a.s we ' ve seen her name heading " " Four ' !j1 ' Students. ' has to study hard to get them but there is something about her doing it that makes us think that she really and truly enjoys doing it. That ' s the real spirit and we wish more of us could have it said aljout us. Margaret was on the Annual nominating committee and also the Annual Staff. Her hobbies are laughing, eating, talking with Audrey (Bennie) and going- to basketball games. Her ambitirm is to becoiiiH some specie of a teacher. MARLIN BEAVER— " Dutch. Chapter VII " " He ' s a boy of high and noble aims, but slightly timid when among fair dames. " Martin has Ijeen waiting for four years for K. H. S. to put (»ut a liaseball team, and right now it looks as though he would at last get a chance to do his stuff. He ' s a southpaw of no mean pitching abilit ' . But listen. " r)utch " , if you are going- to train for said team, you ' ll have to avoid certain hall lockers. Shame on you. Martin, maybe you aren ' t as timid as we thought — - " but when you get him alone. you ' d be surprised. " Is that it? Marlin says he likes playing baseball, going to basketball and football games and driving his brother ' s ■ " Buick. " His ambitinn is to ride a bicycle to the top of Washington ' s monument. ESTHER Mccormick " A perfect woman, nobly planned, to warn, to comfort and command. " Quiet, sweet and lo able are only a few of the words that de- scribe I ' lsther. and although we are leaving much to the individual taste, we are sure that there are no objections. She is a very good student and is guilty of the hobby, " dieting. " also dc.ncing and going to movies. Ji sther is a great lover of music and can play beautifully. She is a member of the music club. With the intentions of becoming a Domestic Science teacher or of playing in the Chautauqua we are sure Esther has a brilliant future ahead.

But don ' t get the impression that Kenneth is a bad boy at heaft. We l.ielie " e he is Quite the opposite. His ambitions are to graduate. tra " el and later be a draftsman. GLADYS SWARTZ— " Happy " " Love all; trust a few; do wrong to no one. " Few members of the class have really become acquainted with Gladys ' charming personality, but those vho have had the pleasure can assure the others as to what they have missed. Gladys is a great reader and she is also some swimmer, the latter being her favorite l astinie. She intends to either become a ci ' oking teacher or a music composer and we think she ' d be a great success in either. GERALD DORIOT— " Doc " " Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it. " " Doc " has been with us all four years of our career in E. H. S. He is one of the few who have the esteem of their teachers. He likes to work (isn ' t that odd ' . ' ) and he is also fond of music. He liasn ' t decided whether his ambitions are to be a musician or a pri- ate secretar.v — possibly he ' ll be ' ooth. Time vi tell. MARTHA JANE LIPPINCOTT — " Marse Jane " " There is an unspeakable pleasure attending the life of a voluntary student. " Driving a Studebaker is one of " Marse Jane ' s ehiefest hobbies, liut that isn ' t all, because ilartha has always studied cooking, she loves it and intends some day to be a Domestic Science teacher. Martha is a verv athletic girl, loving to swim, canoe and play tennis. She is also one of the teams most faithful supporters, being present almost all c f the football and basketball games. She is a member f.f the Rah-Rah Girls. ANTHONY J. DEDARIO — " Tony " " Silence is golden — I ' m silent. " Tonv is a verv quiet sort of fellow — short and plump — the kind that always makes " vou feel good because of the sort of hidden humor and kindness that is charact eristic o£ his type. He has a queer sort of hobbv — studying Latin — not many of us care enough about any subject to call studying it a hobby. What? His ambition is to study Daw at the University of Michigan, and were sending all our wishes of good luck along with him. Page Fifty-three y « i(0- ,:r , Jfa ' l GRACE HUMMEL— ■•Skeezix " " Magic in her very glance, Grace in every motion. " Grace has been with us all four years but, although she has never been very active in class alTairs, she is quite well known and exceed- ingly well liked. Movies are her favorite pastime and reading a novel or two afterwards, for Grace never sleeps much, claiming- it doe.sn ' t agree with her. She wants to get excited sometime over an auto- m obile race and to make a lot of money in her bright awaiting future. RALPH TSCHABOLD " An opening won ' t come to one, but one must go to it. " Here is a fellow of few ord.s but a great mind. He is an excel- lent student who enjoys stud.ving his lessons, but he gets the reward when report cards come out (?) I wonder! His hobby is playing tennis and his ambition is to be a chemical engineer. ERMA HURST— " Curly " " As wise as she is fair. " Erma is a member of the Glee Club and she had part in the ' Maid and the Middy " and also in the " Captain of Plymouth. " She likes to read good books but even it she does she isn ' t the quiet sort, rather we always like to go places with her ' cause she ' s so full of pep. Erma wants to be someone ' s private secret ary or. better still, teach kindergarten. She says she really prefers being an old maid liut Erma, ve fear not. JULIAN HOLMES— " Julie " ' Silence is wisdor I am silent then. " " Julie " is a charter member of our class, and, although his class activities did not have the marked vim which characterizes many of our members, his membership was valued nevertheless. The entire class extends its sympathy to Julie, as we understand he is another victim of the merciless " Radio Bug. " Julian is also fond of all kinds of athletic sports, both winter and summer, and we w ill not be a bit surprised if the news reaches us sometime in the near future that Julian is a manager of the Giants. CHARLEEN CR E I G HTON— " Charley " " From sweet lips smooth elocution flows. " " Charley " is a very industrious girl — through her school -ears she carried high grades and has learned to express her many thoughts ver.v fluently. She has acquired a large vocabulary and keeps it always at her instant command. " Charley " , although ne ' er having held any special offices, has helped the class in many respects. Of course she is perfectly human and therefore has man ' hobbies — a few of them are dancing, parties, and eating dill pickles. She has a very good ambition, which is to be the best stenographer in Elkhart county.

Beulah hopes t ' ) Ipeconie a private secretary. Here ' s to your success Beulah. KENNETH K L I NGL E R— " Kenny " " Consistency, thou art a jewel. " Kenny has been another of nur nld stand-bys. having been a faithful member of our class since the day of its creation. His hobby is radio, like most up-to-date fellow ' s, and his ambition is to be a civil engineer. We are sure that he will realize his ajnbitinn if he goes after his college work with the vim and drive ihat has charac- terized his High School work. VERA JANE JUDSON— " Jayne " " A rosebud set with willful little thorns. " .Jane just jf iined our class tliis year, having been a student of " loshen H. S. of previi;)Us years. However, during the short time she has been with us. she has won many friends and has pro ed herself very useful in many of the classes ' activities. She was a member of the Social Committee during lA term, and with her clever suggestions she lieljjed much t ) make our parties a success. Her hobbies are dieting and " horseback riding, but her ambition for the future is rather unde -ided as she inffirms us that she would like to be a designer, journalist, or dramatist. ELMORE BEEHLER— " Fuzz " " A man ' s task is always as light as his heart. ' ' " Fuzz " is our football player, receiving a letter in both his .lunior and Senior years. Although he was usually on the bottom of the pile, he usually came up. possilily with a limp, but always with a smile. Besides playing football and winning a monogram in basket- iuill " Fuzz " has found time to do credit to the offices of IIC Treas- urer. Vice-President lA and TIA Social Committee. He tells us his hobbies are: driving for " Chuck " , athletics, playing signals, and wailing for a dark-eyed girl, and from what we ' ve noticed, he won ' t have long to wait.

" Marie hay been a staunch supijui ' ter of our clasK since we first entered the sacred portals of K. H. S. She dotes on driving Ford roadsters and is always present when it comes to having- a good time. Bert says that, she is trying to decide whether she shyll be a trained nurse or a private detective. We ' d hke her in either role. RAYMOND STAUFFER— " Ray " " He looketh wise, nor doth deceive his look. " " Doc " was a faithful member of our class from its infancy to maturity. Touring this time he established himself high in the es- teem of his teachers and classmates. His hobbies are good grades- music. and work. He intends lo carry his hobbies through life and become a competant Ijusiness man and musician. LUCILE WEAVER— " Lukie " " A word in earnest is as good as a speech. " Yes, we all know Lucile, for she is one of us and that isn ' t all. No, she has always had to fight hard for what she got. She was reporter for the Pennant at one time and when she was a HB she imp rsonated with great success the well known character of Aunt Sarah Peabody. who was one of the characters in the fair. She has many hobbies, a few of the most important are " trying to look wise without success.

(Anyway, she has our utmost desire that some day it shall l)e realized.) LAUER E. ENOS— " Perk " " Empty your purse into your head, and no man can take it from you. " ■■IVrk " lielongs to us and we are proud of it.

She loves to skate, dance and doesn ' t mind a bit going on sleigh-ride parties or for a horseback ride occasionally. She and l-Zthel are great pals and we don ' t see why they couldn ' t be partners in the business world as well as in school. She hiipes to be some- one ' s stenographer — for a while at least.

" Wo never have found out the connections between Lloyd and his nickname " Derby. " Perhaps he does most of his talking through that particular part of his apparel. T ' erby hiis always been " .luhnny- on-the-spot " at all class activities, especially thr.se at which there were eats. His hobbies are skating, swimming, dominoes and tiddle- dee-winks. We dare say that his choice of indoor sports is gond. Lloyd also distinguished himself in varsity basket-ball during the season ' 2:1 and ' 24. and as " Alford AVilson ' in the .lunior class play. " (.)tficer llCi;. " He was 11:1 and IIP. Treasurer and lA t ecretary of the class. MARY FLAUDING " It is work, but not too hard. " Mary is one of our lirilliant students, always (.oming to school early and staying late. .She is most always seen stud.ving and has acquired that which many of us lack, the " power to concentrate " .

Page Fifty-seven LILLIE ROWE— " Bud " " Indeed she was never known to frown. " hilli - is iiur roniinercial student. She i.s usually seen with Betty and Jane, and they certainly make a hapi.»y trio. Li Hie has always helped in our class undertaking ' s although not a very prominent mem- ber of the class. She wants to become some great personage ' s private secretary in the near future. DAVID TURNOCK— " Dave " " A little learning is a dangerous thing. " auv Dave is on of the iiiusl i rominent nienibers in the class.

He was leading man, Travers Gladwin, in our Junior class play " officer ijfii! " and he also was in the one-act play " )p o " Me Thumb. " As for beC(jming a success in the world l!)a e does not worry, l)ecause he has alread ' establislied himself in that role. He is going to be a ver - Well known law er and the class joins in wishing him luck. ESTHER TERRY— " Est " " The future is purchased by the present. " Esther ' s pleasing ways ha e won her hosts of friends. We always associate her witii Gladys and r.ertrude. possibly because they are usually- seen together. She likes going to shows and band concerts and her amliition is liccome cither a sewing teaehcr or a First Grade teaiher. EDWARD GRIEB— " Eddie " " Fortunes favor the brave. " This aspiring young pharmacist is another member of the class wlio has always been there and ready to help. His hobbies in school have been mainly to get good lessons and judging from reports we ha " e decided that he has been nuite successful In the future Eddie hopes to Vie owner of a large chain of drug stores and. of course, he will succeed. LEON A ROTH— " On ie " " Sweetly and stately, and with all the grace of womanhood. " Leiina joined our elass when we w ere lA ' s and now we kno ' what we missed, because she is one of those girls with that sweet disposition that you read about. She has always been an enthusi- astic onlooker at basketball and football games, but classes, studying as a hob) y. This is evident from her card which is found with an unusual number of lO ' s. Leona ' s lone ambition is to teach music or I ' r.nch and e ' ve no doubt as to her success. Page Fifty-eight LYNTON FIELDS " What should a man do but be merry.

MINERVA WEAVER— " Minnie " " She is made for the admiration of many. " IMinerva alwaj s was an industrious student and gi es stud ingr ' ■r typewriting as a hobby. Xothing matters to Minerva if she has I ' hnty of candy t j eat. for she ' d rather eat candy than do nirist any- thing else, except typc rite. She has quite a choice of ambitions. thi. ugh not much variet . We know she ' ll be someone ' s good secre- tary or stenographer. LLOYD E. WHITCOMB " It is a great deal easier to go up hill than down. " Lloyd is one of these boys that always appears to be very busy. :tlways having something to do and a keen intention of accomplishing it. He always makes high grades and stands therefore as one of our c-r-ditable students. His hobbles are camping, arguing and fussing with gun.s — " bang.

HAROLD JONES— " Hal " " Be ready for the opportunity when it comes. " We ' ve often wondered if Harold is really as quiet as he always appears— maybe so. maybe not! He says that photography is his main hobbv ' and he also likes swimming and library permits. Some day Harold wants to be an aviator and. of course, he will make a good one.

She says she ad ires writing notes (but not letters), picnics, parties and swimming but she doesn ' t like to work and wash dishes. Of course she will sooner or later over- come these dislikes. Her ambition at present is to go to college and after that to be a success in life. We can wish her nothing better. JAMES LAWRENCE— " Jim " " The man who masters himself is free. " Janus is another )nenil)er that gets a lot of " E ' s " . How? Oh. Ill- does if with ease. (Ha! Ha! " V ' ' e laugh for you). Jim likes radio. ili.wing gum. candy and working, but getting lessons and girls (no. not getting girls, just girls) are listed as his main worries in life. 1 1 is ambition is to dig an alimentary canal. MIRIAM L. MOVER— " Mi n " " Serene and kind with a steadfast mind. " Here We have one of those silent, little creatures. Ijut sonjehow a er ' likeable person who always has a smile hich is about lialf hidden; but when it comes out it is full and real. She is the kind of girl that likes to do school work, especially studying science and iOngiish. Of course she has plans for the future but fails to make lln.ni known. RALPH CLOVER— " Ling " " Good character is property. It is the noblest of ail possessions. " Whenever there has l een any class doings, " Ling was always among those present. We usually associate him with Kenny, pos- silily because they are usually seen together. Hi-: hobby is the national game of pinochle, a pastime indeed worthy of a youn° " man ' s attention. His ambition is to become a heating and ventilating engineer. HELEN CHARLOTTE MILLER " Secure whate ' er she gives, she gives the best. " Helen is our Homes tic Science girl.

His ambitiim is to go to West Point and we all join in wishing hiro luek in the realizati in of that long cherished dream. y DOROTHY McMANUS— " Dof " A maiden x --jQr bold of spirit — still and quiet. ' " Diit " is a girl who claims she has a dislike for th i.ppi.site sex. but we wonder.

Page Sixty-one AUDREY BENNER — " Bennie " " Nothing is so difficult but that it may be found out by seeking. " Audrey is a very studious girl, carrying very high sTradns throufili lur school year. But whenever you thinlt of Audrev vou do not iH-cHssarily think of gradns. lor she is most always seen with :MHrga- ret. Audrey ha.s been a very faithful member of the class being on tht- Junior Pin and Ring Committee, and also on the Annual Staff. Sh ■ not only filled these offices favorably but was a very heerful worker. She belonged to the Forum during her Freshman and Suph(.more yeans, and was a member of the Rah -Rah Girls. Audrey ' s main hobbies are reading, playing basketball, and going to " ootball games.

' AGNES SMITH— " Smitty " " As wise as she is fair. " 1- ss ' ntially -i studt-nt. Agnes has devoted her time exclusively to h.T studies, tht-reby carrying mostly all E " s through her high school i-ars. Slie Unds time, however, to get in orchestra and Ijand pi ' ac- tiir. which she enjoys very much. She is also a very good violinist ;md a member of the Music Club. Being a very brilliant Latin stu- d( nt slie has carried it four years with wonderful success. Agnes has a very sweet disposition and is very much liked by the girls - she never cared much for the boys, and we girls are sure that they have missed a lot. She informs us that she hopes to be a Latin teacher or a concert violinist, and we are sure with her many ad- a n t a ge s she is bound Xn win. JOHN WERNER— " Johnnie " ■ ' It is not work that kills but worry. " In the years to come, when anyone wants, or rather needs, the work of a good dentist, all he will have to do is look for our " Johnnie " Werner, then Dr. " N. Howell " Werner, P.D. (Painless Hentist). John lias not be en very ai ' -tive in class work, but we have always found lie is " there " when he is needed. We ' re for you. Johnnie. THELMA GRANDSTAFF " Her- voice was ever- soft, gentle, low — an excellent thing in woman. " ' riH-lnia is another meni) er of our class who is always ready to ■push " when we want to put sitmething over. She likes sports and iii. thing else up-to-date! After graduating she wants to see tlie , olid Br.n soy age, ' I ' lit-lma. Page Sixty-two ALICE TUTHILL— " Tuf ' " Laughter floweth from her lips. " Alice, often called " Tut " is seen with Esther a great deal. She is a very jolly, good-natured girl and very much liked by all her friends. She. like many of us. has a good time in the study halls. Trying to study dramatics is a rather difficult task — isn ' t it S ' l. " Tut " ? But Vf will say she took her part very well in the play " ' Op o " Me Thumb " given in the Little Theatre. Alice ' s hobbies are dieting, dancing, and dates — and her ambition is to be a wonderful designer — she has already made arrangements to go to T-ake Erie Girls " school next year. r CHESTER PETERSON— " Chef ' " Nothing ventured, nothing had. " diet hasn ' t Itet-n to man " of our cla.ss parties and we ha ' en ' t been flattered by many of his appearances at our class meetings but we are sure that our class would have improved greatly if he had only enlisted more of his time to it. Chet has high ambitions. He wishes to become an electrical engineer or a high-class aviator. RUTH WELTER— " Peggy " " True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it be lost. " Ruth has never made herself very well known but she has always been i resent and with a smile for everyone. She likes best to go " riding " and go to f htjws and some da ' shi ' intends to become either a cooking teacher or a primary teacher. EARNEST NORRIS— " Earnie " " Boldly ventured is half won. " The class of January ' 25 lost a good member when " Earnie " t iund he had enough credits to join the June ' 24 class. He was al " a ' s " there " whenever called upon, and has helped furnish " jazz for the jazz-hounds " at not a few of our parties. He says his hob- bies are playing the " slip horn. " studying History and Botany, and. in fact, ajiything but " Latin. " " Earnie " says he intends to " hang out a shingle " and " sling pills " when he gets to be a " big man. " ZENA MOSCZENKO— " 2ek ' ' m " Victory belongs t o the most persevering. Zena always had her card full of " E ' s " but yet she doesn ' t mrn- tion studying as a hobby; then we must conclude that she ' s just naturally bright. She likes to eat candy, play tennis and it ' s evident that she doesn ' t hate to laugh. Zena played her rolt- well in the " :Maid and the Middy " and also in " Captain of Plymouth. " Her one and only ambition is to be a secretary in the commercial line and we know she ' ll be a tine one. Page Sixty -three DOROTHY HAVLISH— " Dot " " A light heart lives long. " " Dot " iy another member who has always been " there " at all our class activities. She is usually seen deeply interested in a magazine (Snappy Stories) and energetically chewing gum. Outside of school she is almost always ' ound at the " Pollyanna Shop. " Some day she hopes to have a real " Elite " Beauty Shoppe of her very own. RUSSELL KIDDER— " Skeet " " The iangtiage of truth is simple ' llussell has never been very active in i-Iass affairs but he was rather active in athletii-s and if it hadn ' t been for his injury received in the Mishawaka game he W(»uld have made a very creditble show- ing. His hobbies besides athletics are banquets and all their trim- mings. Some day Russell wants to be a civil engineer and. of course. we wish liim lurk. HELEN HORN— " Peg " " She is not made for the admiration of many but for the happiness of one. " Whenever Helens name is mentioned we always think of " Bob " , of course there is nothing wrong with that, because when one finds someone they like it just can ' t be helped. Ho ever. Helen is studious. Itecause wlien she ' s not thinking of Bob t here is just one other thing to do, and that is study. She is one of the very few girls who has not yielded to the temptation of getting her hair bobbed—some girl — yesl Her hobbies are jnnochle, dates (what kind?) and dancing. She uishes to be a stenographer in the future and u e wish her success and happiness. PAUL OHMER " Labor is the law of happiness. " Paul is another lad who like:s to cut eain-rs. He says he wants to strike oil but we ' re sure he doesn ' t mean anything as bad as that —you know, it used to be said. " The early bird gets the worm. " but now they say, " The oily bird gets the hook. " Better lay off of Teapot Dome. l aul, better let us change your ambition to playing your " shaxaphone " for Isham Jones; we believe you ' d have better luck, at any rate the class is with you in anything you undertake. FRANCIS HOLLAWAY— " Frankie " " With volleys of eternal babble. " Francis always lias a smile for everyone — that is when she can stop talking long enough to smile. She says she likes pinochle, pull- ing taffy and parties. We don ' t know about the other hobbies, but we know she likes parties. " Frankie " N ' ants to be " pri ' ate secretary to someone.

Eunch ' i and most anythinsj to have a good time. JOHN RABER— " Big Boy " " Truth is courage. " John is about to step into the lime-light in the role of an up-to- date dairy farmer. He is one of the non-talkative members of the elass. but when it comes to amusements such as radio, sleeping ' (?). eating iV). and hunting, we find that he is i|uite human. GLADYS SH INN — " Shorty " " Small but mighty. " Through our high sehool dayt; there has been a certain girl that always greets us with a smile and has a pleasant word for u. ' — none ■ ither than " Shorty. " Gladys intends to be a History teacher and we know that she will make a srood one. EL DON PORTER— " Port " " The first years of man must make provisions for the last. " We think of Kldon and then of eourye we tliink of basketball — he is one of our l:)est athletes anil he deser es much credit for the hard and eonstant " pluck " which has won him a name for which he should be proud and we sincerely hope that he does not regret the time and efforts he put forth to win these honors. He played on the football team in ' 2 . on the basketball team in " 24 and was out fnr track in ' 22 and ' 2:i. His great ambition is to graduate from Purdue— and we surely wish him success. GERTRUDE FE RGI SON— ' " Gerf ' " Her lovliness I never knew imtil she smrled on me. " " Oert " is another one that is eager to mention show.s as ipne of lier fa ' orite hobbies, and mentions horseliack riding a close sei-ond. We all know Gertrude by her smile for everyone. Sometimes We ' re apt to think that that smile is perpetual. Can you imagine anyone that you ' d rather have take care of you? Gertrude ' s ambition is to go to Chicago to train as a nurse. Page Sixty-five . — CLEVE J. HOFFMAN " Men are oftener led by their hearts than their understandings. " Cle H i.s iiiw nf our rhrtjiiii; um-chew ers.

She attended most I ' f the social functions and always backed the class in whatever it took upon itself to do. " Gerry " although never on any special com- mittees, has done much for the class and we wish her abundance of success in whatever her undertaking in life may be. LAMAR M ILLER— " Shiek " " Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice. " LaMar is our Tifem High. Hit ' em Low " boy. He has done some good work along with " Claudie ' . His hobbies seem to fit pretty well with his job. They are: iJaking lots of noise, driving a Ford and arguing in Civics class: the first two being practically the same thing. LaMar intends to go to an engineering school and find out hww it feels to be " studious. " LUELLA LEHMAN " Labor is the law of happiness. " l aMar is ur Hift-ni High. Hit ' em Low " Ix.y.

GERTRUDE BLISS— " Gert " " A light heart lives long. " Gertrude, recognized by many as " Gt-rt the Flirt. " is a very care- free, happy-go-lucky girl, but she gets her lessons of course— that ' s expected of everyone. She is always laughing and seemingly having a good time. She finds many people she likes and those who are fortunate enough to Ijc her friends, will surely agree with nie when I say that she is a " real girl. " Her ambition is to become a private secretary, and she has the best wishes of the class in her future work. DOROTHY NASH— " Dot " Sweet girl graduate in her golden hair. On Ring and Pin Committee. Another auburn-haired member of our class. She is at ninyt of our class parties and at all of its meetings.

Her amldtinns are to do secretarial work. NANAL GARL " If thou wouldst profit by thy reading, read humbly, simply, honestly. " Nanal is a memlier of thf Forum. She is one of the few who lists studying as a hobby, and she says that she also likes Kconomics but she has a great dislike for History and washing dishes. She hasn ' t decided whether she wants to be an Economics or a Science teacher, but we know she will make good at either. Page Sixty-seven V f IRMA CARLSON " Who would resist such charms? " Irma is one ot " the most charming " girls :)f our acquaintance, although we have never become intimately acquainted with her. She dotes on reading books on character analysis and playing her violin. She is a member of the Art club and hopes that some day she will become a real artist. Irma is assistant art editor of tbe Annual. RAYMOND KELLY — " That Boy is Irish " " Laugh and the world laughs with you. " Did you e ' er hear ii reguliir rip -tearing. r .)Oi ' ' - raising " roar of spontaneous snickers, chuckles, gargles and explosions, sometime the fifth or sixth period, that shook the old school from the " auditorium " to the flag-pole? Didja? Huh? Know what it was? Huh? " Well, ' twasn ' t nobody else but our own drawing " class going " into convulsions and hemorrhages and such over the antics of our own little Raymond. Raymond likes to draw and despite the fact that he can always find time to pull a wise crack, he is usually about a yard and a half ahead of us less gifted students. Kelly intends to become a draftsman, and we are sure he will succeed. FLORENCE E N G E L HA RDT— " Fleece " " Gentle words are always gain. " Treasurer IIC Social Committee, .Member Cirls ' Glee Club and lUrls ' Rooting " Club. Florence likes basketball and football games, parties, dates, and dates (the other kind), pop-corn and " most any- thing " to have a good time.

Horace hasn ' t taken a very active part in our school activities, although he always attended the games, etc. To some he seems rather " retired " but we assure you — knowing him as we do — that he ' s a jolly good fellow. Among his likes he lists sleep and " banana pies. In the latter he intends to break the present marathon eating records. Next fall will proliably find Horace entering- some college. VIVIAN HOYT " A demure maiden of pensive mien. " Vivian is one of the shy maidens of our rlass, although she isn ' t quite as shy as she would have you think. We can ' t imagine the class or class parties without her, as she is always " there " and ready to help. Vivian likes best to eat. dance and have a good time in general. We do not know just what she intends to do in life but we know she will not be a failure. Page Sixty-eight NOBLE DEFREESE— - ' Jack " " Only those live who do good. " Xolile iti one uf lh(.t.st quiet fellows seldom .seen at class parties — liut we know tliat he really lias the right good spirit.

Some day Xoble aspires to become a ci il engineer and of course he will realize his aspirations. DARRELL MAY — " Jimmy " " Every man is the architect of his own fortune. " Darrell has never been noted for his boldness, in fact he is rather reserved, but he will soon overcome that. He. too. is quite a radio Ian. but we are sad to relate that he is " g " irl-shy " . a seemingly only fault. His ambitions are to conquer Science and Mathematics and he (luite easily does that. LOIS JEAN ABEL— " Bugs " " I can ' t worry and be glad at the same time — so, Tm going to be glad. " Bugs has always been " among- those present " at our class par- ties.

Her one wish i. to enter " Vassar " and we hope she gets it. S i ETHEL ATKINSON — " Midge " " A work of real merit finds favor at last. " When we think of Kthel we always think vf her raven eurls — of course it would be quite iniiHis.sible to think of one and not the other. Ethel has always been willinp: to help others get their lessons — a good habit indeed! Her nuiin li..bby is reading novels and her ambition is to become a nurse.

Dessie Loucks was chosen as leader, with Bun Hansen to act in her absence. Mary Flauding was duh ' elected as record keeper, while Dorothea Farle} ' took care of the money (such as it was). The only social e ' ent was a picnic supper in the Domestic Science rooms, on March 4. Sophomore Year. We were Freshmen no longer but had reached the place where n(jw we could look down on the inexperienced youngsters. We were at last really Sophomores. A class meeting was held and again Dessie Loucks was elected president, with Bun still assist- ing her. and Mabel Ruth EUwood the secre- tary, while Mar}- Flauding was advanced to the position of treasurer. The most important event of the year w-as a Hallowe ' en party at the home of Pauline Isbell. October 27. We all dressed up like " what we ain ' t " and a motley crew we were indeed. But that didn ' t spoil the fun, but added to it. Junior Year. Again advanced. K.■ thcr Templin is seen at the helm. David ' J ' urnock acting as first mate; Margaret Brumbaugh was the re- corder r,f the precious big and Lloyd Bart- let guarded the money. I- ' irst of all we had a wienie roast at Studebaker park. Septemljer 29. and it was rumored that some of the boys vied with each other to see who could eat the most marshmallows. - ' s a result some of the la- dies were without them and had only " hot dogs " to eat. Although we were " grown up " we donn- ed our childhood garments and had a rous- ing " kid " party October 27 in the Domestic Science rooms and the gym. But we had other things to think about besides parties. We had to make money! So on l)ecend)er 7 we had a candj ' sale in the halls and we had a start! We d id so well that on February 16 we again tempted the candy eaters. But the crowning event of the year was the Junior-Senior Prom. This was looked forward to by everyone, especially the Ju- niors, to whom a Prom was a new expe- rience. - nd we all had a fine time even if we did have to foot the l)ill. The Prom was held at Christiana I ake June 4, ' 23. A won- derful banquet, followed by a dance, were the main features (especially the banquet). Senior Year. We have almost ended our sojourn in the land of E. H. S.. and a happy one it has been. W e have at last reached that goal to •ard which we have all looked since that Fall of ' 20. This time Dick Putt was elected presi- dent; David Turnock. vice-president; Lloyd Bartlett. secretary, and Edith Lord, treasur- er. Miss Stanton was chosen sponsor. ( )n r)ctol er 4 we had a wienie roast on the banks of the r)ld St. Joe at McXaugh- t(jn Park and had a wonderful time. Then, on November 2, the " dignified " lA ' s laid off their cloak of gravity and partici- pated in another " kid " party in the Domes- tic Science rooms and gym. After dancing we were filled up on animal crackers, lolli- pops and ice cream cones. () Course, we must leave something be- hind to tell of the famous Class of ' 24, and that thought has occupied our hearts and minds from the beginning. Charles Haring was chosen editor-in-chief of the Annual at a meeting on Monday, September 24; David Turnock. managing editor, and Dick Putt, business manager. We ' ll let the book speak for itself.

A feature of this sort is now running, with Jliss Ruth .M. Fuller as the " actress. " The ver- satility of this young lady is remarkable as she features six entirely different acts in an eve- ning ' s repertoire. The ex- periment is meeting with great success. ZIEGFELD FOLLIES GREAT SUCCESS The " Follies of 1943 " were a great surprise to all who witnessed the " first night " perform- ance. For the last few years they have been be- low the standard but due to the terpsicliorean abil- ities of Miss Grace A. Arbogast they are far above this year. Also the dance numbers of Miss Madelynne Arthur and Lois Abel scored a " l ig hit.

The first chiss team made ii a successful ear. the tremendous support showed it to he a record year, the jierfect new athletic field prosed It a liig ' year, and the nation-wide po])ularity of the gridiron sport grew just as the local interest did — h}- good teams, jjlayers, cnacii- es. games and suiiport. Coach Boone developed a fast, hea y team, composed of deadly tacklers, fierce blockers, and hard fighters. It was an ex])e- rienced ele en that started the season and a more experienced one when t)ur hard sched- ule had been played. It was a team that knew and played high calibre footliall and wa.s one of the leading elexens of the state. More Athletic . ssociation tickets were sold than ever before. This shows how our home games were attended. .At oitr •isiting■ games Elkhart hafl more rooters than the home team. The Rah Rah Girls, the Fight- ing h ' orty, and the whole school backed the team to the limit. The yells and yell lead- ers, the mass meetings, snake dances, ban- quets, and the band, orchestra, and The Pennant helped to keep up the e ) and spirit. The new athletic field is a wonder, and an honor to the ' 2i team. There ' s none better in the state and very few as fine. . ' (j hi.gh school could wish a better gridiron, track, grandstands and bleachers, a more up-to- date athletic fielcl. complete in ever - detail and so well planned and situated than the one owned solelv b ' l ' ' ,lkhart High School and named Rice Park. Uur record is four games won. two tied. and three lost. We won every game on our new field, tied all on our old. and lost those away from hrime. In addition, no o|)ponents scored on our new field, while we scored on both ends in every game. We scored 140 jjoints to our oponents ?iO ])oints. FOOTBALL FOR 1923 THE GAMES The Coldwater Game. Score, ii-( . -V slow game liecause of hot weather and the first for our team wdiich fumbled much and lacked smooth team wiirk. Coldwater ' s second game so the} ' w jrked together better and had less fum- liles. Ivlkhart was o er-confident at first. Coldwater scored near the end of the first (juarter with straight f(. otball and Elkhart used the same tactics in scoring in the third (piarter. Many penalties were called which helped to slow up the game. Captain Haus- man picked up Cokhvater ' s fumble for a thirt - ' ard run in the last quarter. Plaved at Driving Park. The Gary Game. Score 6-6. Elkhart improved greatly. Hot weather but a very exciting, fast game was ])layed. Froebel scored in first of game, but a shoestring jjass, Stephenson to Peterson brought our score at beginning of second rptarter wdien the " Swede " ran 40 yards for a touchdown. Other passes worked as well, liedenkop caught short and long ones, making a record of completing 7 out of 9. Pio th teams tried drop kicks near the end of the game but our two chances missed and . llen blocked their one try. The outcome was gratifying to many w ho considered the (lary game the hardest on our schedule. Played at l)ri ing Park. The Mishawaka Game. ( )ur first defeat seemed like another tie game because of the equal strength of both teams throughout the whole game. Roth teams fought up to their knees in the gravel of 1 )odge Field with such fierceness that it Page Ninety-four 19. ' 3? e 11 a d w f 3uZ n 11 u d i, ' THE FIRST TEAM Front Row — E. Porter. J.

Ve hnxcved around their 20 and 30 ard line the whole game hut lost the ball and the chance to score time after time by fumbles. Xo breaks were with us that game but we wouldn ' t ha e needed them had we pos- sessed some scoring ' ]iinich when we needed it. The Renssalear Game. This game was the most im]Kirtant game to us because on it depended the success of the dedication of our splendid new gridiron. I ice Park. The team was unbeatable that da ' ;in l in the first five minutes the team enabled Peterson to make the first touch- down on the new field. Renssalear came back and put up a strong defensive game which held our fighting team time after time in Renssalear ' s danger territory, ' i ' he second half brought us another touchdown when Kaufman fell on a lilocked kick behind the line. Thus we retrieved the 1922 defeat handed us at Renssalear and dedicated our magnificent athletic field with a l.VO vic- tory. The Michigan City Game. The second game on Rice l " " ield brought another victor} ' . Again we scored in the first five minutes and . nd - ( ill ' s team held us to the si.x |)oints for the remainder of the half and came back strong in the second half with a bewildering forward pass attack which carried the liall too close to our goal to be comfortalile. Hut ( )rt finally intercepted one of their comjjlicated passes , ' ind Klkhart soon carried the ball to the other end ol the held where Martin scored a safety which cinched the exciting game with an 8-0 score.

Ijack on our new field, old in reputation, the team worked together and individually almost perfectly.

A stdT game was expected and the seniors on the team had resolved to keep our record on the new field clean no matter how hard the game.

Two mono- grams and (ine letter were awarded him, THAYNE BEDHXCOP— Football. Basketball. " Heanie " made the team in both sports this year. Both games were played by him with consistenc} ' . .Vt end he starred at catching jiasses, and getting his men out of the wa ' in making interference.

He was also a member of last ear ' s football squad, until he broke his arm, and was on the basketball squad. Two letters and one monogram were awarded him. ELMORE BEEHLER— Footl)all. " Fuzzy " had good luck this year. Exery game saw our sterling center playing oppo- site the " biggest beef " on the other team. This suited " Eleanor " and the way he han- dled the liig boys, suited our backfield. " h ' uzzy " also starred on defense, where he was the first to tackle the runner and the last to let go. He made the first tackle on the new field, w hen we kicked ol? to Rensse- laer, fie also placed center on last year ' s football team and was a member of this year ' s basketball s |uad. He earned two let- ters and one monogram. CLELANl J I! -. iC. b:R— Footliall. Berger has done his share in making the good record of the last two years for E.H.S. football.

Last year the first team " imparted " to Charley, who was a second team hero, the knacks and knocks of football. This year he imparted the same things to the opponents and he (lid not do it gently. Boone could depend on him to keep the play inside his end or get the player inside his grasp. Memljer of Senior Championship Interclass Basket- ball Team. One letter, two monograms and numerals.

' J " he " rep " comes from the good showing made 1) ' the teams under his supervision and training. Since he has taken charge of !{. M. S. Athletics, his football teams have won eigiit games, tied three and lost six. The) have scored 204 points to their op- ])onents ' 81 points. His basketball teams lia e wun 28 and lost 18 games. They ha e scored a total of 1276 points, while their ti])p(inenis were getting 1027 points. His ' 23 irack team had a successful season (written u] in this issue of the Annual), as his ' 24 team is expected to have. The first-class coach has learned the art by pla ing, studying and coaching since 90( till the present time. He played foot- ball at Franklin (Prep, and College, Captain 1917) and at Ohio State; in all six years of it. lie has taken four courses in coach- ing, two at Illinois and two at Wisconsin, lie has coached high school and college teams all these years. The future e en looks better than the past with I ' xione at the head. It takes years uf dexeldpment in installing and learning and perfecting a good system, like all good coaches empl(.)y. The teams thus far have imjiroNcd each year with this system and the}- will keep impro -ing under Boone. NEXT YEAR ' S SQUAD First Row — C. W. Miller, W. Stiemer. H. Brannon, Capt. -elect C.

RICE PARK DEDICATED l " (ir many ears Klkhart High Schuul has useil tlic old Drixing- I ' ark as its athletic field. Many are the histe)ry-inaking conflicts that ha e been waged there by the sons of our good old school. On some occasions it has been the scene of great rejoicing, on others, dismay and defeat have stalked about. Rut the old Driving Park has had its da ' . Long since the supporters of high school athletics ha e realized that its day of usefulness has passed. It was totall}- inadequate in all its facili- ties. Crowds had to stand and jostle one another about to see the game. It was in- con enient of approach and this kept man}- away. It hindered the team sume. too, in its practice. It isn ' t so nice to rush down- stairs after school, jump into your togs and rush up town to catch a ricket}- old street car to get to practice on time. The field was ])ot)rl - drained, the track was poorly suited to its purpose, and no liaseball or tennis facilities could be arranged. We say that the supporters of athletics realized the total inadequacy of the Driving I ' ark and had been doing their ])est to rem- edy matters. Several } ' ears ago their oppor- tunity came through the philanthrophy ot James Addison Rice. Mr. Rice gave to the cit ' some 04 acres of ground which he designated shoulfl be used for a park or sim- ilar purposes. Through a petition of the School Board about twelve acres were given to them by the city. Part of this has been used for our present Rice Park. It has Cost a great deal of time, effort and money to give us the park as we have it today. Xo little credit should be given to E. C. Rowe, a former teacher, and Coach Boone who together had a large share in the planning and development of things. Mr. Wiley. Mr. Holdeman, and the School Board deserve a great deal of commendation for their work and co-operation in the mat- ter We pass on. however, to some ol the details of construction and description. The park is located just west of Goshen a -enue between Jackson and Middlebury streets. It is in a very picturesque vallc} " . surround- ed 1) ' l(jft ' trees and the winding Klkhart river. The football field is, of course, the center of attraction. The drainage is taken care of by the grading — an eight-inch slope from center to sides. The base of the field is sand xvhich is co ' ered with good soil. The field has been carefully sodded and should have a fine surface next fall. The goal posts are firmly set in cement and the field is marked by lines every five yards and markers are provided along the sides. The field runs north and south and this prevents the sun from bothering the players. Supplementing the playing field is a permanent, -well-built grandstand, -ith a seating capacity of 1800 Page One Hundred Three 19. ' ,P e n II ci 11 Tc: ' 11 11 U cl h ' ' to provide a suital)le view to all spectators of track in the spring and football in the fall. Seats for 600 are provided on the east side of the track by a set of knock-down bleachers, which will be used for football in the fall and baseball in the spring. The field has been planned to give our patrons the best view obtainable and yet provide the players with an unobstructed place to play. A heavy wire fence, topped with barbed wire has been put around the whole piroject tf) handle the crowds on a paying basis, anrl a good fence surrounds the play- ing field to keep r)Ut tlie ton ardent s])ecta- tors. The track is copied after the standard track used by the Big Ten. the arcs having a 90-ft. radius and the tangents or straight- aways being 374-11 100 feet long. The quarter-mile track is 28! 4 ft. wide from the ' tart of the 220 around turn and straight- away. This furnishes eight lanes for all dashes and hurdles up to and including the 220-ya rd e -ents. The remainder of the track is 21 feet wide. The track was com- posed of three different layers of cinders, 12 inches deep in all. The first layer con- sists of nine inches of coarse, steam-boiled cinders, c impactly rolled. The second layer is two inches deep and consists of well rolled half-inch mesh wire. One inch remains for the third layer consisting of coal ashes screened through a j4-i ' ich mesh wire. This last layer acts as a binder and makes the track the fastest, driest and easiest kept of all tracks. A concrete curbing four inches wide and fifteen inches deep lines the track on both the inside and outside. This not onl} ' adds to the appearance of the track but keeps it from merging and holes every ten feet in the inside curb help to drain it. The track drains toward the inside, the out- side being three inches higher than the in- side. . mple space has been provided in the center of the field at one end of the football field for jumping pits, runways and other necessary arrangements for all field events. Page One Hundred Four %f 3 en lid 11 t ji; ' Annual i Although baseball is not a major sport in E. H. S., a first-class field has been laid out east of the track. The infield has been cov- ered with two parts clay and one part soil, while the outfield has been covered with the soil only. It is to have a grass infield and outfield with base lines of clay and built according to Major League specifications. The ground west of the track has been leveled in preparation for a football prac- tice field, tennis courts, and parking space for automobiles. . ser " iceal)le cinder road leads to the park. Rice Park was formally dedicated on Sat- urday. October 20th, 1923. After the crowd had gathered the formal dedication began by the raising of the Stars and Stripes over the field while the spectators stood at atten- tion. As the flag reached the top of the flagpole, the E. H. S. band played America and the people sang enthusiastically. Mr. Harman, a member of the school board, gave a short but appealing address asking the students and citizens to thank and respect the late IMr. Rice in his fore- sight in granting to the city land which should be used for the betterment of the citizens of Elkhart. Shortlx ' after the team appeared, . fter a brief warming up, Capt. Hausman -alked to the side lines where he received a ne ■ ball tossed to him by Stiperintende nt ' iley. Then began the game of dedication which was a fitting climax to this great day in b ' lkhart ' s history. With the acquisition of Rice Park, E.H.S. can Ijoast one of the finest fields in the state. Our heartfelt gratitude should go to Mr. Rice, the School Board and to any and all who have made possible this fine monu- ment to the spirit of E. H. S. Athletics. Page One Hundred Five 19.

It is through the philanthropy of James Addiscui Rice and energy nf uur present Schoul ISciard that we ha e our new t()(jt- 1)all field. Mr. Rice was hurn July 1 ' , 1845. in the state of New ' (lrk. . t an early age he nioxed with his parents In h ' .lkhart. which w a.s his Imnie until his death, lie ' as a graduate of Hobart College. 1 le stud- ied for the niinistr}- hut later took up the practice of law. Mr. Rice gave to the city Some ' H acres of ground wdiich he desig- nated should be used for a park or similar purposes. Through a i)etition from the sch(]ol board about t ' elve acres ere given t ' l them by the city. Thus ■as made ])ossi- ble our new fielfl which is known as Rice Park. Mr. Rice died on July 2S. I )2,v I ,e- .sides this gift, he also gave the city 40 acres for a cemetery and ga ' e $2700 to the Gen- eral Hospital fund. We cherish the memor ' of this good man.

The ictory was the mtist decisi e seen on a local field for } ' ears. ' J ' he score by no means shows how far the lilkhartans out- classed the Red and Black. The forward wall broke thr iugh the westerners " defense time after time and threw the Rensselaer backs for big losses.

The Klkhart backfield showed the best ground-gaining ability so far this year. P rannan. the new cjuarter-back. played a fine game and ill probably be seen there the remainder of the season. The outstand- ing star of the game was " Click " Peterson. The slippery Swede playing only his second game at half-back, was a sensation. His broken field running was the best seen since the graduation of " Slitz " Anderson. He had everything, he side-stepped, changed pace. stift ' -armed and even after being tackled woidd go whirling and twisting on for a few yards more. Boone ' s reconstruction of the team was a master bit of strategy. W ' ith Ort back in the line, Stephenson at full, driving through opposing lines for big gains. Peterson for sweeping runs and taking punts and Brannan directing the play at cpiarter, the offense is strengthened about two hundred percent. The line will take care of itself and the new backfield Satur- day demonstrated its effectiveness. The lo- cals bump headgears with the Michigan Cit) ' leather pushers next Saturday at Rice Park and a great game is expected. Page One Hundred Six 19.

The Athletic Association The Athletic Association started the year successfull} ' with a record sale of associa- tion and season tickets. It had a successful season financially, generously supplying nione - for the purchasing of athletic equip- ment, vhich was of the best quality and sufficient quantity. Jt paved for some elab- orate banquets for the pla}ers at the close of basketliall, football and track seasons. All expenses connected with athletics which are big and many were handled. The asso- ciation had charge of the pep meetings. A diich were handled by the President or given over to some organization. The abundance of gate receipts kept the treasurer busy, not only at the games all the time and required a considerable amount of hard work. ]t also arranged schedules for next sea- son ' s games.

However, in spite of the fact that no out-of-town games ha ' e been sched- uled the blue and hite lassies have spent many hours in practice both for their own amusement ami that they might be in trim should any local team challenge them. Of no little interest were the class games staged on Wednesday nights from 5 :, 0 till 7 ■. 0. From this fra - the Seniors emerged ictorious, ha ' ing won four and lost no games. The lianner winning team was composed of — Dorth} ' Pletcher, Forward. — " Dot " has been shooting baskets for E. H. S. for the past three years. Dot is one of these girls that pla} ' every position so well that she is put where she is most needed hich is usu- ally forward.

Page One Hundred Sixteen FELLOWS WHO WEAR THE " E Page One Hundred Seventeen THE WINNING OF INDIANA John Ware was a ranger of the northern Indiana forests. Two years before he had come west Avith his father and had helped liuild the fort, their home, on the Kankakee river. He was now the best shot in the settlement, so it was his uork tu supply the family with meat. One day while out hunting he heard a splashing in the river; on investigating he found Running Fox, the aged chief of the Shawnee Indianas in quicksand up to his chest. John hurriedly dragged a long grapevine to the edge of the river and threw one end to the Indian, while he pulled on the other. At last Running Fox lay on the bank, ery weak and wet. l ut sale. Running F " ox then explained Ikjw in tr}-- ing to cross the river after his drifting canoe he had Ijeen caught by the ever changing quicksands. He then gave John a small round stone with peculiar markings on it, and told him that if he was ever in trouble with Indians to show this and he would be safe. He then turned arminil and silently disappeared into the forest. Se cral eeks later John left fur the set- tleuKMit at Cincinnati to get powder and shut. He journeyed southeast till he came to the (Jhi(j ri er and then followed it up to the little tuwn in southwestern Ohio. He had not been there a week till news came in that the Indians were making a final stand in west-central Indiana under the great chief Tecumseh. At the same time General Harri- son was organizing an army to exterminate them. He joined the ami}- as scout and with se ' eral others started on ahead of the army to guard it against surprise attacks. The whites marched along ()hio and eastern Inrliana, dri ' ing the Indians before them and burning their villages, till at last they were com].)elled to stop because they were surrounded by a much larger force. One day while scouting alone. John saw an Indian I ing apparently dead on the bank of a small stream. He walked up to the body and bent o er it to see what had killerl it when other Indians rushed out of the bushes at his sifle and the apparently dead Indian jum]jed up, and between them the ' managed tfj bind and gag him. They then marched him to a small canqi where they tierl him to a tree to -ait for darkness when they -would torture him and then burr: him at the stake. John tested his bonds and found that they would break un- der a hard pull. He then waited for it to get dark so he could escape. As it was growing dusk the Indians came for him and as they were leading him to the stake he gave a sharp pull and the rope laroke. He hastily ran his hand into his pocket and then held u]) the stone that Running F(jx had given him. The nearest warriors sprang back a step w hen they saw what it was. and then flock- e l around him again, all talking at once. The chief of this band then sprang up from where he was sitting and came forward, mo- tioning the others back. He then spoke to J(]hn. in broken English, and told him that the ' were mistaken and would not harm anyone who carried the medicine stone of the great chief. Running Fox. However, he would have to remain in cam]) for the pres- ent. John was amazed at first that the stone was of such -alue, although he had hoped for as much. He was then led into a wig- wam where he was to spend the night. Hardl} ' had he got into the tent when it started raining and in a little wdiile it was ])ouring down. IMie Indians all rushed for shelter and the camp was deserted. John then slit a hole in the back of his shelter and craw led into the bushes and finally es- caped. Before daylight he was back at the army camp. The next morning General Harrison at- tacted the Indians along the Tippecanoe ri er and defeated them. John was in the thick of the fight and many Indians went down, either from the smashing impact of a bullet or from a blow with his gun. . fter the battle was over and peace was restored. John left the army for his home on the Kankakee. As he was nearing the jilace where the Shawnee camp had been, he saw a sight that filled him with sadness. The village was in ruins and a very small number of Indians were packing their few- belongings and turning west, leaving behind them the land of their ancestors. Thus passed the red man from northern Indiana, and the last ones are but faint memories to us. When we think of these noble warriors we feel the pathos of all that the Indians have had to } ' ield to in the march of ci ' ilization. Elston Booth. ' 24.
