TABLE OF CONTENTS
On the two following pages will be found the Pennant "Whos Who" section.
The Seniors chosen for this honor: Catherine Ort, Pauline Young, john Pettit, Clare
Randolph and Rexl Lloyd, were selected because of their outstanding attainments during
the four years of their school career, Every kind of activity has been taken into considera-
tion. Loyalty to school and class, participation in all activities, and a willingness to do
whatever has fallen to their lot, are the things that have decided their presence here.
The under-classmen, Marjorie Mathias, Inez Levin, Clarence Peterson, Robert Paulson
and james Neale, were chosen both for their attainments and their possibilities.
We realize that in a school of eleven hundred, to choose ten students as representative
of a whole student body is a somewhat ticklish job, but we feel that in selecting the above
mentioned ten that we have chosen those who fully justify the honor.

ELKHART SCHOOL BOARD
F. W. GAMPHER H. A. COMPTON
J. L. HARMAN
The student body of E. I-I. S. certainly owes a great deal to these three men. Under
the able direction of the present school board, E. l-l. S. has grown steadily in size and spirit.
Due directly to their efforts, we now have a fine athletic field, Rice Park, a new gymnasium,
and the best auditorium in the middle west. The student body surely appreciates the earnest
efforts of these men in its behalf and thanks them most heartily.

J. F. WILEY, Superintendent
Mr. Wiley came to the head of the Elkhart city schools at the beginning of the Fall
term in iozo. During his five years with us, he has been a constant booster of all school
activities. Under his competent leadership, E. I-I. S. has launched into a broader and better
campaign of scholarship and activity than ever before in its history. The Seniors wish to
thank Mr. Wiley for all that he has done for our high school,
JOHN W. HOLDEIVIAN, Principal
Mr. I-Ioldeman has successfully filled the honored position of Principal of E. l-I. S.
for the past five years. I-le has been one of the greatest factors in putting high school in the
high place that it now occupies. Mr. Holdeman has held high school first, in all his interests.
The success of his leadership is pointed to by a new athletic Held, a new gymnasium, and
a new auditorium. Mr. Holdeman has raised our standards of scholarship while he has
been here, and we hope to have him with us for many years more.

JANUARY, '25 POEM
E1 EI El
CApol0gies to William Shakespeare and Anne
O, would ye learn, ye student throngs,
Where all your hearty praise belongs,
The source from which merits greatly thrive?
Behold the class ofjan. 'z5.
lt knows the way, and needs but try
The hosts of upstarts to defy,
To crave the knowledge, win the day,
In every stunt it hath a way.
Talk not of classes that aspire,
The verdant Frosh., in loud attire,
The junior staid, the Soph., more gay,
Talk of the Senior class-I-Iooray!
It hath a way upon the field,
That makes the other fellow yield,
Its brains doth, haply, match to brawn,
It leads the way and shouts, "Come on."
And could you doubt who wins the race,
Where 'tis Twenty-five that sets the pace?
O' 'tis not to my good pen given
To rate their charms, tho long I've striven-
But let their laurels speak for me.
Their whole career spells victory.
Of athletes they've at least a scoreg
They've artists, authors, 'learned in loveg
They're on the top in every fray
Does that not prove they have a way?
MARY ELLEN SASSAMAN-"Min' '
"We heard a long and drawn out moan,
Twas Minnie on her saxophone."
IB Vice-Presidentg IIB Secretary.
Min has been with the class all through High School and is one of the few
that have taken an active part in class affairs. Whatever the class did, Min
was found back of it. Min has a charming personality and knows how to put
life into a party. She was talking or laughing all the time except when she
was in a class room-and often then!
" 'A man is what he eats," said an old philosopher. Does that make
Howard a hard-boiled egg?"
' junior Class Playg Social Committee '13-'1.4g Track Team 'ug Football
13 lvlonogramg Dramatics Clubg lnterclass Basketball 'z3.
No. we fear that Howard isn't half as bad as he lets on he is. although he
tries ever so hard to make us believe that he is vurr bad. Howard has gone
out for many things and appears by the above to be sort of ajack of all trades.
But he has proved himself to be the better adapted to dramatic work. For
Ah girls, wasn't he a wonderful Adam in "Adam and Eva?"
"To be womanly is the greatest charm of women."
Carol has not been with the class during all of its journey and not all have
become acquainted with her charming personality as she seems a little shy.
She has not taken much part in class activities although she tries todo her
share. Carol always had a smile and a cheery greeting for all her friends.
THEODORE ZFISH-' "fed"
"Short and Snappy."
lA Bandg IIA Operettas.
This modern Boy Blue. blew his horn in the band. However. this lung
power was not what put him over as Class President as he is the hardest
worker and best salesman in the class. His ability to put things over will be
of much value in life. We will surely miss 'led and his ready laugh while he
is at N. Manchester.
DOROTHY KINTZEL-' 'Dot' '
"The sweetest voice on earth, a woman's tongue."
IIC Secretaryg IB Chairman Social Committeeg IA Vice-Presidentg IIA
Social Committee. -
Dot and Min could usually be found together and they were surely a good
pair, always laughing and talking, Dot has been a helpful and faithful member
of the old clan during our four years journey and has helped to make our class
parties and any undertaking a success. Dorothy has made many friends and
is admired by many for her cheery nature and smile.
joe will be remembered by E. H. S., his class and team mates of the cham-
pionship team of ioz4 as the all-state tackle who worked with the powerful
right side, One of the greatest if not the greatest tackle ever to represent
E. H. S. on the gridiron. is often said of joe. His work in Basket Ball was
high-class too. as his membership on the All-County will witness. Every one
has a good word for big smiling joe. A good student. a good fellow, a great
athlete and his name is joseph.
"One in a million like her."
Treasurer IIB. IA. llAg Annual Staffg Pennant StaHg Forum, junior
Class Playg Secretary, Rah Rah Girls.
Always on hand to do the class a good turn, Lillian was indeed a valuable
member of the class. Supporting class doings was among her hobbies. Am-
bition - Ability - Success. so we know whats coming to her.
"Demosthenes couldn't compare with him."
The class had another worthy donation when it was about two years "out"
at sea. This was made in care of Howard Coombs, He has the artistic tem-
peramentg also as he is not one of those fellows who believes in living and dying
without making himself known. he has great opportunity offered him and
has made good use of it.
ROB ERT GARRETT-' 'Bob' '
"I think, therefore, I am"
Bob was one of the heartbreaking, sleek-haired, goggle-eyed shieks of our
class, He is generally seen with Helen and we hear he has a desire to be an
interior decorator. Good luck.
NOR MA ISABELLE WHITEMAN
"When found make note of-"
Norma has minded her own business. in her own deliberate way. so well
during our past four years of struggling fmore or lessj that few of us are ac-
quainted with her. But it is not only the prominent who possess real worth
She has always paid her dues promptly. always backed the class and faithfully
attended class activities.
Q23 cgnnuczl .A
GILBERT GROOTVELD-' 'Gilly' '
"He who falls in love with himself, has no rivals."
President IIC Class. f
At a class dance or party you could depend on Gillie and lvlarion for support.
They would be there. Although not a football star Gillie was quite a track
man in his ability to successfully catch the female of the specie. However.
beneath it all Cvillie's a real fellow and we wish him luck.
ETHEL MAY HEIDER
"Sensibility is the power of women."
Quiet and modest are the main characteristics of Ethel. She is another
one of our members that has not been with the class during all of its journey
and is not known by all the class although we are sure if she had been with
S lgnger she would have done more for the class. Ethel is usually seen with
RUSSELL VAN DUSEN
"Fate made him what he is"
Here. fellow students you behold another of our worthy shieks, You have
all doubtlessly heard the clank and crash of Raymond's famous stride. He
always appears to be intent upon arriving somewhere-but we wonder,
STANFORD SPOHN-' 'Stan' '
"His heart ran away with his head."
While not so active in high school life as he could have been. Stan, the
living joke book, has our best wishes for a happy cruise on the Zeppelin of life.
SARAH ELIZABETH JOHNSON
"A pound of pluck is worth a ton of luck."
Sarah has journeyed a long way with us-in more ways than one. First
she came over from Central with us-and has kept right in step-if not a trifle
ahead of the rest of us. Secondly-think of the long way she has to walk to
come to school. That is ambition and that kind of ambition and perseverance
surely will win something great.
HELEN SWINEHART A
"Her fame was never widely spread, but her qualities of heart and
head I never, never doubt it."
Quiet and shy-these are Hclen's main characteristics. but those who
know her declare her to be a most congenial friend. Helen has a smile for
every one. Although she has not taken a very active part in class aH'airs
her contributions are greatly appreciated. Helen is one of the few of her sex
that hasn t the heart to give up her long hair.
THEODORE MORRIS-' 'Ted"
"Ignorance is niine enemy."
That boy is a worker, Steady and independent, he stands by what he
thinks is right. We could use many more like him. No one need wish him
success. he will bring it on himself.
"We acquire the strength we overcome.
Clarence only joined our class this last year and so we have not had the
opportunity to make him work. But we hear he is a real worker when hc gets
started. and we are sorry we couldn t have claimed him sooner.
. VELDA WATERS
"The prettiest little damsel."
What a world of wealth. Velda. always calm and serene. never had so
very much to say but yet she is one of the most valuable members ofthe class.
When we think of her. we associate her with pleasant things-and Art. She
is our artist and the class feels proud to be the lucky possessor of so fair a
genius. Velda was made to succeed.
"'I'm one of this curious kind of chaps-that you think you know
when you don't-perhaps."
jay has always been too busy or too bashful or too something to attend
class parties. or any other class doings. However, there is a lot of good hard
work in him. as he has provezl to be an excellent student. Also he has helped
on committees-in order to put thinis over big-though he didn t always come
to share the benefits. He plays t e piano marvelously and some day will
prololably be a second Paderewski-unless the radio bug gets too strong a hold
on im. '

VERA L. FOSNAUGI-I-' 'Flos."
"A woman's nay stands for naught."
Vera has not been with the class all through her High School career and
is not known by all the class. Those that know her Find she is a good scout.
She is one of the many members of the class that do not get called upon to
take an active part in class affairs, although she tries to do her share when there
is any work to do.
"Sloth maketh all things diiiicult-industry, easy."
Band and Orchestrag Senior lnter-Class.
M As a member of the band, Lloyd and his trained drum-which could say
Uncle --were much in evidence. He earned his numeral in inter-class at
center. A genuine good fellow. and we look forward to hearing "Lloyd and
His Syncopating Sisters" about lo1.8.
CATHERINE ROY-' 'Babe"
Girls Inter-Class Basket Ball.
Catherine and her near-twin were always seen together until moved to
South Bend. Catherine has never been quite the same since. However. Ca-
therine has been able to round out her high school course without her which
shows that she possesses grit.
DELOS THRAPP-' 'Dee' '
"It isn't what a man stands as for what he falls."
Although 'iDee" has not always been connected with us through the four
years of strife and gathering up knowledge Ccoming from the great refrigerator
cityj we consider him a welcome addition to the class. Dee is generally seen
and also heard in his famous "Buick" which he is trying to use as a racer and
his name will probably appear at the races at Indianapolis this coming year-
we mean with the car-but we are afraid the car won't stand the test "Dee"-
also "Dee" is what is termed as somewhat of a la:ly's man.
"Sweets to the sweet."
Thelma is one of our notable musicians who helped compose our classy
band this year. We're proud of 'em all. but especially those from our own class
and we know what the band and orchestra is losing when Thelma receives
her diploma. We're sorry E. H. S. is losing her. but glad she is a member
of our class. Thelma is one of the shy maidens of our class. although she
isn't quite as shy as she would have you think. Her ready smile and good
humor make her loved by all who know her

a class member. Clare has a happy faculty of first being happy. Not only
has he been 'a success in football. but also in several dramatic productions,
and besides all that he had time left to be a helpful supporter of class activities.
"His mother's pride, his father's joy." '
Vice President Fighting Forty: Varsity Forwardg Vice President llC Class
During the basket ball season of 102.3-'24 Ramsey showed his ability to
such advantage as to rank as one of the best forwards in this section. Although
his life has its ups and downs: Charlie runs an elevator: Ramsey is a happy,
jolly good fellow which same nobody will deny.
LUCILLE YODER-' 'Lucy' '
"Small, cute, and musical."
Size has nothing to do with the power of world wise Seniors. Lucille has
been with us for ages-we mean our four years. and she has successfully
gathered quite a store of knowledge. However. if silence is golden Lucille
must be very wealthy because she has kept most of her thoughts to herself.
Perhaps she saves the energy required to talk for her music because she is a
line musician. V
"She has an eye that can speak although her tongue is silent."
Inez is another member of the class that has not been with us during
all our journey. She is a quiet member of the class who doesn't have much
to say but willingly goes ahead and does her share of work. Inez is usually
found near the art room. She is one of the few maidens of our class that has
decided to wear long hair.
"Worki Where have I heard that word before."
Varsity Footballg Trainer.
Every night for two months Berger was on duty at Rice Field and we
wish to say as a hard-working trainer. Berger takes the prize. Berger is a
type of fellow that we like to have around. and when Dame Fortune hands
out her luck may Berger get a double handful.
Q25 Manual A
JESSE A. STARNER-' 'Doc"
"A man of sound and composed mind."
jesse has been with our class since the time he entered E. H. S. as a lowly
Fresh until his graduation as a dignified Senior, Although he has not been
very active in class affairs, jesse has not been asleep and is one of our class
supporters, always willing to do his part to see that everything would come
out all right.
. GOLDIE MAY NETTRO
"Pleasure postponed is pleasure lost." .
Goldie is very quiet around school but whether she is outside we cannot
tell. She has not been with the class all through high school. although we
are glad she,is with us now. She has not been very active in class affairs but
we are sure if she had been with us longer, she would have done more.
LULA REPLOGLE-' 'ja ck' ' N
"When duty and pleasure crash,
Let duty go to smash."
junior Play Committeeg Annual Staff.
Lula has been with the class all of the four years in High School and is one
of the members that has taken a more active part in class affairs and one
of their most ardent supporters. Lula has always been "among those present"
at class parties. Lula has a sweet disposition and is very lively. She has made
many friends and is liked by all.
RUTH HUF F-' 'Huffy' '
' 'Little but mighty. ' '
We remember that one of our beloved instructors once said that some
people never spoke unless they were personally invited to do so. What a
blessing. We didn't have a good opportunity to solicit Ruth's help as she
just honored us with her presence during our last year. But we know that if
we had called on her she would have responded graciously.
MARY ELIZABETH FETTERS-"jane"
"C1oudless forever is thy brow serene."
Glee Clubg Music Club.
We have not heard very much from Mary during our past four years of
gathering knowledge. except from her cello and piano. She has been an ardent
member of the band and orchestra. So perhaps while the rest of us have done
the shouting-and worrying-she did some splendid collecting of intelligence.
and has given her contribution to High School through her very worthy music.
"Simplicity is the real key of the heart"
Esther is an old member of the class, having come over from Central
with us if we remember correctly. She has never had so very much to say
but she has been a willing helper when called upon.
"The simple., silent, selfless is worth a world of tonguesters. ' '
ln the four years that he has been with us Irvin has always been a steady
sort of person. Quiet and self-controlled. he was not as prominent as some
but when he was wanted he was always ready to help. He is one ofthe promi-
nent musicians of the class, and we hope that he will succeed along this line.
MARION F. SURLS-"Mama"
"Oh, this learning! What a thing it is!"
Marion is our bashful shiek and is not known by all but he is considered
an excellent fellow by all who know him. Marion has not been in the class
"lime light" any during his High School years. nevertheless he has been with
us not only in person but in spirit, and we have enjoyed his associations with us,
DOROTHY ELLEN FISHLEY-"Dot"
"Oh, Well Done! I oommend your pains!"
Dot seems to be a shy maiden to many people but she is not really as
shy as she appears to be. Dot has not taken an active part in class affairs.
although she has willingly done her share of work whenever the class did
anything. Dorothy always has a smile and a kind word for every one. Lula
and Dorothy are usually seen together.
HARRY NIEMAN-' 'jack' '
"The very substance of the ambitious is merely the substance of a
Harry is usually seen at the class meetings although he did not have much
to say or to do. He is a very conscientious student who minds his own business
-a trait which is rare enough to receive special mention. Although he has not
partaken in class affairs. we are glad to have Harry among our number.
THE jANUARY CLASS HISTGRY
Having entered E. H. S. in january our class was rather small. However this did not
deter us from arranging for a party which was held in the Domestic Science rooms, Friday
evening, April 15. Games formed the chief diversions of the evening. In music, Ernest
Norris played a pleasing violin solo with the accompaniment by Dorothy Kintzel. The
latter also played for a solo dance given by Miss Gladys Roush. Light refreshments were
served consisting of ice cream and cake. The chaperones were our sponsor, Miss Walls,
Mr. Caylor, and Mr. Ivogood.
The class officers elected for the term were: President, Mac De Shone, Vice President,
Bob Frederick, Secretary, Katherine Hall, Treasurer, john Morgan, and last but not least
Sponsor, Miss Walls.
A short business meeting was held November 17, the 5th period, at which time the
cl-ass adopted several plans for making money. A jitney dance was planned and candy was
to be sold in the halls and at basketball games.
The jitney dance which the class gave was attended by a fair-sized crowd. The Oliver
Harmony Five furnished delightful music and the dancers enjoyed themselves very much.
The class held a meeting in Room 317, February 13th, and elected the following officers:
President, Edith Lord, Vice President, Mariellen Sassaman, Secretary-Treasurer, john
Snyder, Chairman of the Social Committee, Leigh Schroeder. '
The new term was opened with a party Thursday evening, February 16th, in the
Domestic Science rooms. About go students and teachers spent the evening in dancing

Mr. and Mrs. Caylor and our sponsor, Miss Walls.
A class meeting was held in room 317, February 17th, to discuss the plans for a jitney
dance to' be given in the gym the following evening. A candy sale was also planned for

greatest number. Many delightful fortunes were foretold by Mrs. Derby. Dancing, to
the tune of Norris's famous orchestra was enjoyed in the gym. Confetti and streamers
added to the hilarity. Tasty refreshments were served after which Mr. Noel ofhciated

A IA TERM
This semester the class elected the following officers: President, Theodore Fish, Vice
President, Dorothy Kintzel, Treasurer, Lillian Shreiner, Secretary, jay Winer, Sponsor,
The first meeting of the semester was held in the Gym, january 3oth. Plans were made
for a candy sale at the Goshen Game, February Ist, to raise some needed funds.
At a meeting in Room 215, March 4th, the class was again given an opportunity to
display its talent as salesmen, as candy was distributed to everyone, and tickets were given
out for a theatre benefit. Miss Walls also estimated the number who would appear for the
tryouts of the class play "Adam and Eva."
The last meeting of the semester was a joint session of the IA and IIB classes. A com-
mittee was selected consisting of Gilbert Grootveld, Howard McCluckie, jay Winer, john
Pettit, Karl Vetter, and Bob Lloyd to elect the editor in-chief and business manager of
next years Annual.
The officers elected this term were: President, Theodore Fish, Vice President, Bob
Garrett, Secretary, jay Winer, Social Chairman, Virginia Verbarg.
On October 3rd, the class was called together and schedules were given out for the
taking of the Annual pictures. A party was also considered, upon which the social committee
was to deliberate. i
A joint meeting of the IA's and IIA's was held to announce the selection of the invita-
tions and to give individuals a chance to get their cards engraved.
' A week later the two classes met for the purpose of distributing tickets for a theatre
benefit. A class debating team was also discussed with much pep. Our class also discussed
the class flowers, colors, and the motto.
The extensive affairs of the two classes necessitated another joint meeting on December
oth. A short business meeting followed in which a report of the Senior banquet committee
was given by I-Ioward McCluckie. The party was held December 18, in the Domestic
Science rooms. Ed Olivers Orchestra furnished the dance music. A vaudeville stunt was
pulled off and an all round good time was had by everyone. Bob Lloyd gave out the Annual
subscription blanks at this time.
The last class meeting, closing the career of our class in E. I-I. S. was held january 5th.
The meeting was called for the benefit of getting money tio buy flowers for Miss Burns'
Mother who passed away on the 4th ofjanuary. Following the joint meeting the january
"flour" committee held a short meeting. Plans were made for Wednesday, january 14th,
to be held as flower day for all january Seniors.'
On December 18th the IA and IIA classes held their annual banquet in the Domestic
Science Rooms. The banquet was one of the major events of the year. I-Ioward McCluckie

even the most dignified of Seniors did full justice to that spread. "john" Pettit most capably
flied the office of toastmaster.
"Parking Limit, Four Years", was the subject of Karl Vetters talk while Miss Walls
spoke on "No Left Turn," and i'No Stop Signs" by Miss Lillian Shreiner. Next came the
vaudeville which consisted of "Magic Movements" by Cecil Neale, a clever black-faced
sketch by Arthur Ware and Howard Coombs, Doll Dance by Betty Kilmer and jane Did-

' CLASS OF JANUARY 1oz5.
By Gilbert Grootveld.
JANUARY CLASS PRGPHECY
After receiving a telegram, reminding me of the Physicians and Surgeons Convention
in New York, I hurriedly packed my bag and was soon standing at the Chicago terminal
of the Cleland Berger Aircraft Lines. In a few minutes all passengers were aboard and the
giant craft was leaving Chicago behind. As we passed within sight of Elkhart strange
thoughts surged through my mind. It seemed only yesterday that I was among the proud
and happy seniors that wore their class flowers, though it was fifteen years ago. I wondered
where they all were, and decided to find out about them.
I went into the Smoking Room and the quest was begun for there sat Theodore Fish.
It was sure a happy meeting. I told Ted that I was going to New York to a Doctors Con-
vention. He said he was a buyer for Marshall Field 82 Co. Then the conversation drifted
to the january class of 'z5.
I asked Ted if he knew where any of the members were. He said Robert Garret had
gone into the racing game and was going to enter at Indianapolis Decoration Day. He is
looked upon as the probable winner of first place in the goo-mile classic.
"Whom do you think I saw at Hollywood?" asked Ted.
"I haven't the slightest idea." I said.
"Gilbert Grootveld, in person, and he has signed a contract with the Paramount Com-
pany." replied Ted. "He is going to take the leading part in the modern presentation
of "The Sheik", Ted continued.
"I was told that Arthur Kellogg is a professor in a certain college in Iowa. Is it true?"
"Yes," replied Ted, "but I never expected to see Art in a place like that."
"Say Ted, what has become of Vera Fosnaugh? I have seen her only a few times since
"I haven't seen her Very often either, but the last I heard of her she was running a
curio shop in South Bend." .
Pennant ggi, cgnnuczl
"I haven't heard ofjoe Dellinger since he started coaching at Indiana U."
"He is still coaching," said Ted, "but not at Indiana. He is the Sophomore and assistant
varsity coach at Notre Dame now."
By this time New York was in sight so I bade Ted good-bye and went to get my bag-
gage. The station being near Broadway and myself craving food, I decided to follow the
bright lights to the first restaurant and satisfy my hunger. The first place I came to was
the "Kuppernus Cafe". I wondered if the owner of this cafe was the same person I recalled.
My thoughts were soon confirmed, for as I went in the door I saw the same Clarence Kup-
pernus of the old school days.
Glancing around at the different tables my eyes cames to rest upon the one at which
two young looking ladies were seated. I immediately recognized them as Ethel Heider
and Goldie Nettro. I went over to their table and after greetings were exchanged, we asked
Clarence if he would join us and we would have a little class meeting.
He accepted the invitation so I acted as vice-president and called the meeting to order.
A question was brought before the House concerning the whereabouts of the other members,
None of us could answer the question fully but we could all help a little. First we told
about ourselves of which you know, except of Ethel and Goldie.
They had been with the Ziegfield Follies but had recently signed a contract with the
Metro Picture Company, A .
Goldie said she had heard that Carol Gummer was chief-of-police in a small town
named Hartford in the northeastern part of N. Y. Carol was very active in the Woman's
League of that town and had been appointed to fill her present position by Mayor Theodore
She also told us that Esther Holdeman was in Paris attending a culture school.
Ethel said she heard rumors that Owen Myers was boss of a big bootlegging gang,
She told us Charles Mack was working for the government. He had been in several
different fields of government work and at present he is supervisor over a large land re-
clamation project in the swamps of Florida. His assistant is Lillian Shriener.
"You remember Sarah johnson, don't you?" asked Ethel.
"Yes," we replied.
"Well, I'll bet you can't imagine what good fortune had befallen her," said Ethel.
None of us knew so we asked Ethel to tell us what had happened to Sarah.
"About six months ago she inherited two and a half million dollars from some lost
relative. Sarah immediately made preparations for a trip to Europe because she was afraid
she would awaken and find it was all a dream."
Then Clarence was called upon. He said Howard M'cCluckie had bought the Swan
Steamship Lines, Howard had been superintendent for a number of years, now he is both
superintendent and owner.
"And Inez Long is just down the street a short distance," continued Clarence. "She
is manager of one of the most exclusive ladies wearing apparel shops on Broadway."
I told them of the members whom I had learned about from Ted. When I finished
talking about Joes work at Notre Dame, Goldie said football recalled the whereabouts
of another member.
"Clare Randolph is spending his time in a noted artists school in Italy," said Goldie.
"I-Ie expects to become a great painter some day."
"Another member is studying paints too," said Ethel. 'AMariellen Sassaman is head
of the Chemistry department of the American Cosmetics Company."
By this time we had appeased our appetites so we bade each other good-by and vowed
to keep track of our members a little better in the future. Having plenty of time and not
far to go I started leisurely in the direction of the convention hall. I bought an evening
paper from a small news boy and proceeded to extract the few scattered bits of news which
it contained. I was glancing over one page and was about to turn to the next when a familiar
name attracted mylattention. The article was headed thus: .
Makes New Altitude Record
Pennant Q23 cvqnnuczl W
Further along in the article it explained that Lieutenant Donald Sigerfoose was testing
and experimenting with one of Henry Fords latest types of Aeroplanes. Don had a little
Ford Sedan in the days of E. I-I. S. but it wouldn't fly, although it made great attempts.
On the society page an article informed me that Miss Virginia Verbarg and Miss Velda
Waters were among the guests at a surprise party, which was given by Mrs. I-I. C. Livingston
for her daughter-in-law, Norma Livingston alias Norma Whiteman.
Turning to the sport page I discovered what had happened to another one of our
Van Dusen Looms Big
As Title Contender
This was the heading of the article I was reading. Mr. Russell Van Dusen or K. O.
Van Dusen as he was called, was one of the promising contenders for the Light Weight
Boxing Title. ,
When I turned to the comic page I saw a series of cartoons which were very interesting
I had never seen these before so I looked for the authors name and there above the cartoon
was the name I-Iarry Nieman in large print.
When I finished reading the paper I was standing directly in front of the building in
which the convention was to be held. I went in and asked a fellow, who was standing near
the door, which floor the convention hall was on. I-Ie replied, "Me no speck United States."
I looked around and soon found by the directory that the hall was on the ninth floor. The
elevator was out of order so I went over to the stairs and began my upward climb. As
I passed through the corridors I read the signs on the doors. Several which interested me
Mr. Marion Surls
Building Contractor ,
Room 31 Phone I3
Miss Lula Replogle
Room I4 Phone III
Mr. jay Winer
Room IOQ Phone 314
Miss I-Ielen Swinehart
Room zo1 Phone Q34
I located the convention hall very easily. There were several physicians and surgeons
already in the hall. One I knew very well, Dr. Stanford Spohn. I asked him if he knew
there were so many of the old class located in that particular building.
"Yes," he replied, "but I have lost track of the others."
I related all that I knew about the other members of the class. When I had finished
Dr. Spohn said, "The class is sure a great success isn't it? And after all the teachers efforts
were not all in vain."

JUNE CLASS POEM
We salute thee, of Fountain of Knowledge,
I-low time has Hown, It seems but a day
That our tiny feet first crossed your threshold,
Filled with importance we strove to display.
We came to you as potter's clay
For you, the potter, our lives to mould.
Your work was to shapen, to fashion and build
Until perfected, we were turned from your fold.
Ready to face life's strenuous duties,
Employing the skill that now is ours,
So like a mother you imparted to us
And fit us to master the unseen powers.
Oh, building of stone, how silent you stand
You seem so unapproachable, so stern
But we, your children, know your tender love
And how, like a mother, over us you yearn.
With bitterness in our hearts we fought you
In repentance we sought you, the breach to mend,
Youthful and unlearned we came to you
Skilled and polished we leave you, our friend.
We have watched you in battles and victory
And have seen you climb to fame
We've fought for you, encouraged and cheered you
Till, in the annals of history, you carved your name.
Now we are parting, Old Pal, forever
In our heart theres a tear, on our lips a sigh
We'll miss you, old building of mortar and stone,
But the time has come when we must say good bye
The greatest trials are the partings of friends
Those who have been loyal and true
And teachers who've inspired and encouraged us,
Now we must break from the old and form new.
A toast to you, Monument to Wisdom,
As you are left by the class of twenty-five
Success to you, dear comrades and friends,
And toward the top let each of you strive.

No. not Betty -She means business! She is the type of girl that one always

seen doing one of two things. either laughing or studying. but when he studies
he studies, and when he laughs he laughs. Therefore he is not wasting his
time when he is laughing nor is he a soured student. He has never been par-

' JOY LUCILLE McLAUGHLIN
"A blush is beautiful., but sometimes inconvenient."
"Cile" was one of the most quiet, bashful members of our class. She was a
diligent student, especially in the last two years she started reaping in the "E's."
She was a constant attendant at our business meetings, so we know she is a
hard worker, but never to any social affairs we had-for this reason this modest,
hard-working girl was known to very few people in school, outside of our class.
"He was a scholar, a ripe and good one"
"The Elkhart Truth-all about the big wash out". these are the oft quoted

Boy Scout. We know you are a good little boy, "Roosey".
"A demure maiden of pensive mien."
We don't know why, but Evelyn never was found guilty of attending
any of our class parties, but just the same we are proud to have her a member
of our class to help boost it. Evelyn just delights in arguing in law class,
especially if she doesn't know her lesson-but you can't fool the "Profs,-

She's very seldom, if ever, seen rushing madly along the halls shouting a
"hello" here and there like some of us more childish upper classmen. although
she's very amiable any place one happens to meet her. And that's a very
lovable accomplishment, so we'll forgive her most heartily for being dignihed.
"It is tranquil people who accomplish much."
Archie is not the most talkative member of our class. l-Ie very seldom
volunteers in class but invariably recites when called upon to do so, and of
course that's what counts. He is not often seen in the halls just hanging
around. nor does he waste his time in the sessions-that's the big secret of
Archie's intelligence in his various classes.

One who does her work well with very little to say about same is a decided

jollity and good nature. because there seem to be an abundance of both in her.
She is often seen, several books under her arm and a hunk of candy in her

JUNE CLASS HISTORY
Four years ago one bright September morning, a group of bright and eager freshmen
boarded the good old ship E. I-I. S. bound for the port of graduation. For the first lap of
the voyage they wandered about aimlessly, deciding at last that united they would stand
divided they would fall, they held a meeting in cabin 224 and elected the following officers:
President, john Pettit, Vice-President, Iris Walley, Secretary, Bob Lloydg Treasurer,
Claude Wilhelm, and Social Chairman, Malissa Smolinski. The officers decided
that what was needed was a party thus the following week a peppy party was held in the
gymnasium. Among the chaperones were Miss Burns, the class sponsor, Miss Walls, Miss
Clark, Mr. Murphy, and jim Griffin. The evening was spent in childish games and dancing.
Refreshments were served by the social committee. A weinie roast was held a few months
later, April 3o, at the Oaks, Christiana Lake. This party ended the social events for the term.
Three months later in cabin 217 the IC class elected for their officers the following:
President, Karl Vetter, vice-president, julia Larick, secretary, Robert Lloyd, treasurer,
Betty Miller, social chairman, Claude Wilhelm. The first party, a I-Iallowe'en costume
party was held in the gymnasium, which was prettily decorated in keeping with the occasion.
The witch, Ava Vollmar, foretold the fortunes of the guests. Pauline Rose took first prize
for the cleverest costume and President Vetter took the prize for the funniest. Cider and
pumpkin pie were served by the social committee. The party was chaperoned by Mr. and
Mrs. Boone, Miss Burns, Mr. Carpenter, Mr. and Mrs. Larson and Miss Fritz.
The IIC class met with their Admiral, Miss Burns, Feb. 1, 1o23, in cabin 224 for the
purpose of electing officers. The noble mates elected were President, Karl Vetter, Vice-
president, Malissa Smolinskig Secretary, Margaret Williams, Treasurer, Wayne Steimer,
Social Chairman, Eleanor Waterman who appointed the following committee: Edith
Winer, Hilya Swinehart and Ava Vollmar. It was also suggested that the members pay
their dues as promptly as possible. Plans were discussed for a party to be held May 18.
The party was held in the little theatre room chaperoned by Miss Burns, Miss Fritz, and
Miss Walls. The evening was spent playing snappy games and dancing. Ice cream and
wafers were served by social committee. About forty members were present. A very
important meeting of the IIC's was called May 15, IQ23 in cabin 205. Tickets were dis-
tributed for the ticket benefit on May Z2 and 23. The selling of the tickets was to take place
between two opposing sides. john Pettit and Betty Miller were chosen captains and tickets
were distributed to those present.
About sixty members of the june class of '25 together with their sponsor, Miss Burns,
met in the gym Thursday, September 18, IQZ3, for election of officers. The results were as
follows: Malissa Smolinski, President, Betty Miller, Vice-President, Karl Vetter, Treasurer,
Rex Lloyd, Secretary, and Robert Littrel, Social Chairman. Hugh Brannon was appointed
chairman of a committee to secure permission to sell candy at a home football game. The
IB class met in the gym October Q, 1o23, with about thirty members present. The first
part of the meeting was held in joint session with the lIB's to vote on the acception of
class pins and rings. Karl Vetter reported a profit of 317.85 on the sale of candy at the
Coldwater game. Claude Wilhelm reported that we, the juniors, had carried off the honors
for selling the most Association tickets, and as a reward were to sit in the "E" section of
the grandstand at the dedication of the Rice Field.
Officers of the IIB class: President, Robert Littrel, Vice-president, Rex Lloydg Sec-
retary, Grace Ranking Treasurer, john Pettit, and Social Chairman, Betty Miller. A
meeting was held in the gym Monday,- February 4th, 1924. The Treasurer reported a
balance in the bank of fl'3Q'5.2O. At a meeting of the IIB's, March 18, in room 224 the president
made known the following committees: Play committee, john Pettit, Richard I-Ioldeman,
and Verna Putt. Members of the Prom Committee were Wayne Stiemer, Betty Miller,
and Miles jones. The Social Chairman, Betty Miller reported arrangements were com-
pleted for the IIB dance Friday, April 22, music to be furnished by the E. I-I. S. I-Iarmonizers.
The IIB's and IA's held a joint business meeting May 13, in room 224. Plans were made
for the Prom to be held Saturday May 24. john Pettit, Karl Vetter, Theodore Fish, Bob
Lloyd, and Gilbert Grotveld were nominated for editor and chief of the IQ25 annual. At

last came the social climax of our junior year, the much anticipated junior and Senior
Prom. The guests arrived about four o"clock at the Tavern, Christiana Lake. Music and
games furnished the diversions until time for dinner. At 6:30 an elaborate chicken dinner
was served. During dinner word was received that our Track team had come in second at
the state meet. This news was greeted with rousing cheers. Ed Gliver and Kent Swayne
furnished music throughout dinner. After dinner the guests asseembled in the pavillion,
which was beautifully decorated with flowers and japanase lanterns. Stiemrich's orchestra
furnished the music for the evening.
The IA Class held a meeting in room 224, officers elected were as follows: President,
Rex Lloyd, Vice-President, john Pettit, Secretary, Karl Vetter, Treasurer, Helen
Wise, Social Chairman, Catherine Ort. October the zgrd, the class had a weinie roast and

seemed to be having a good time including the chaps who made brave attempts to skate.
Among the chaparones were Miss Burns, Miss Sherrick, Miss Nordlind, and Mr. Osbun.
The Senior Banquet was held in the little theatre room December 18. Toasts were given
by Karl Vetter, Miss Walls and Lillian Shriner, john Pettit acting as toastmaster. After

versation which carried to the other passengers one would conclude that they were bound
for Chicago on a business proposition of some importance. I
The ever-unfolding scenery was beautiful at this time of year and while the two gentle-
men seemed apparently engrossed in their conversation, nevertheless at various intervals
they turned an appreciating eye toward the colorful july landscape of fields of corn and
wheat, here and there a farmhouse.
Suddenly at the opposite end of the car the conductor appeared. "El-cart next stop"
he drawled with that indifference that is peculiar to train conductors.
"By jove!" exclaimed the younger of the two, "It's funny it never occurred to me that
we would have a short stop over at Elkhart. You know, I was graduated from Elkhart
High School, let me see, I7 years ago, and have never been back there once. I have always
intended," he went on, "to go back some day and see some of my old friends, but they say,
you know, a New Yorker forgets about the rest of the world", he added with a laugh.
His companion turned to him and said "Why don't you stay over in Elkhart tonight
and come up to Chicago in the morning?"
"I believe I'll do that," he replied enthusiastically, "may as well kill two birds with
one stone. " . '
By this time the train began to slow up and the younger man rose and with a boyish
air said, "See you in the morning," and hurriedly departed to get his bag.
h The train pulled in to the old familiar station and a smile lit his face as he stepped off
t e train.
"Cab! Yellow Cab!" Chorused the drivers. A cab driver stepped forward at his nod
and took the bag. He immediately recognized him as Royal Hughes, an old classmate of his.
"If it isn't Eugene Russel," exclaimed the driver. A sight for sore eyes in this town."
After shaking hands he asked to be taken to the Hotel Elkhart and during the short trip
exchanged a few remembrances of old school days. They soon drew up to the Hotel and
Eugene, after paying his fare went in to the hotel. It was decided, however, that Royal
was to call for him next morning on time for the 8 o'clock train.
He stepped up to the desk and arranged for a room. As he was crossing the lobby on
the way to his room he spied Wayne Steimer seated in a leather covered chair. They both
recognized each other at once and the meeting was much the same as two brothers long
separated. It seems Wayne is traveling for a wholesale grocery concern in Chicago and
possessed enough nerve to sell his goods in his old home town.
As Eugene went to his room he thought to himself, "I believe I'll call up "Hip" Pettit.
I heard that he is now editor of the Elkhart Truth."
He picked up the telephone book and looked down the line. Petty-Pettycord-Petty
john-Pettinger-Pettit-''Ah, here we are" Greenleaf OZ4I. He called the number and a
woman's voice answered.
"Greenleaf oz41 ? May I speak to john Pettit," he inquired.
john Pettit was not home but Mrs. Pettit-Mildred Werman of school days-assured
him that john would be more than glad to see him and invited him out to dinner which
invitation he accepted.
At a quarter past six he arrived at the Pettit home and the meeting of the trio was a
warm one. n
The dinner was a credit to Mrs. Pettit and the conversation varied frequently. Indeed
the happenings of I7 years had to be covered in this short evening. "Do you remember way
back when's" and school days were the main topics.
"The characters that led in the comedies and tragedies of High School 'days now have
their own tragedies and comedies enacted in real life," Mr. Pettit philosophized.
"Are you still in the brokers business?" asked john, turning to Eugene.
"Yes, I am on my way to Chicago now. Our firm is arranging for thegfinancing' of

Allen is a big rangy linesman who knows his

HowE GAME I
Continuing their victorious march of the three preceding Saturdays, Elkhart triumph-
antly walked all over l-Iowe Military Academy, 54-o. Although the cadets were reported
to be a strong eleven, the Boone men found no difficulty in scoring against them, nor in
stopping their advances. l-lowe never once threatened to score to any great degree. It
was just a question of how big the score should be.
The line performed in a fine fashion throughout the game. They opened huge gaps
in the line and formed interference that made the backs irresistable in their attack. The
fierce onslaught was led by the elusive backfield star, Capt. Peterson, who squirmed, twisted
Penncznf gzwfnnual A
and straight-armed his way to the l-Iowe goal line-and overffive times. Brannan, Steimer
and Miller each added a touchdown. Williams added six points to the score by his kicks
after touchdown. .
After the I-lowe team had fallen 54-o it was evident that Boone had moulded together
a fierce-lighting, hard hitting eleven that could not and would not be defeated. The
team worked together like a clock and with well oiled machinery "clicked" off yard after
yard during the entire game.
lt was no dishonor to l-lowe to be smothered in defeat by this powerful eleven. The
milgary lads were as good as the usual run of high school teams, but they met their superiors
MICHIGAN CITY GAME
Michigan City was the next victim to fall before the fast advancing Blue and White
avalanche. As with most of the others, the Gillmen went down fighting, but when hostilities
ceased, the Elkhart team had amassed 47 points and at the same time had held the prison
Michigan City had a team that was easily better than the average high school eleven
and it put up a stiff fight, never once slackening its efforts even though Elkhart was rolling
up touchdown after touchdown against which the Gillmen must have known they could
Captain Peterson was again the outstanding star, as usual, behind almost perfect
interference. Brannan, Steimer, Williams and Miller contributed greatly to the ground-
gaining of the Elkhart team and accounted for seven touchdowns in the afternoon work-out.
The team showed great strength on offense and stopped the lakesiders on defense with
all the appearance of a college eleven. Coach Boones unceasing efforts to better the team
were largely responsible for the overwhelming victory scored against a highly-touted eleven.
The line minus the services of Allen and Hughes, two dependable men, who were
playing regular, gave a good account of itself and showed improvement.
Meeting their ancient rivals, Goshen I-ligh school, on Rice Field the first time, this
year the big Blue and White championship team gave the Crimson and White a warm
reception that they will not soon forget. The 7 to 6 defeat handed them by the Goshenites
the preceding year rankling in their minds, the Boone men went into the contest with a
do-or-die spirit, with the result that the Grater-coached boys were'trounced 52 to o. It
was the severest defeat handed Goshen by Elkhart in many years.
The contest opened with a determined fighting, Crimson and White grid team playing
above their heads to offset the tide of victory for the Blue and White. With this dogged
determination holding out till the half, Goshen held the Elkhart lads to a 7 to o lead. Worn
out by their forced efforts during the first period, the Goshen team was unable to stand the
still fiercer onslaught of the big Blue and White machine during the second half. Their
defense crumbled and the Blue-clad warriors ran through the Goshenites at will for seven
more times. Although the Crimson and White gave everything she had, she, like those before
her, had met Elkhart's "irresistible force." Goshen was simply outclassed.
The Elkhart football team played as they had never played before during the last half
of this game. The line was a power, always advancing forward and forward. The backs
were elusive, hard to stop men. Peterson, the f-litting spirit of the championship team, ran
for long gains. "Tuffy" Brannan played a good game at quarterback, scoring four of the
touchdowns on quarterback sneaks. b
' FORT WAYNE GAME
Elkhart journeyed to Fort Wayne the following Saturday for no other reason than that
of whipping the Fort Wayne Central eleven as had been their custom since the start of
the season. The score was S4-O and a very creditable afternoons work at that.
Pennanf gzggcvqnnuczl A
Elkhart showed improvement over the Saturday before and especially did Elkhart's
gains by the aerial route look good. Several passes to Peterson were the principal ground-
gainers in that department of the game. Elkhart scored in the opening minutes of the game
when a lateral pass to Peterson, who ran oo yards for the goal accounted for the touchdown.
From then on Fort Wayne never had a chance to score and their defense was wholly insuffi-
cient to cope with the splendid offense that the Blue and White uncorked.
Fort Wayne had a good line plunger in the person of Ramsey, the fullback. Ramsey
was repeatedly thrust at the Elkhart forward wall and the ease with which the Elkhart
linesmen turned him back with gains of but two and sometimes three yards went a long
ways to prove the great strength of the forwards.
Peterson got away for several long runs and Steimer, Miller and Williams added many.
good gains to help in the avalanche of scoring. Brannan at quarter back rounded out the
And then came a fighting, determined Mishawaka team to our battle-ground to make
a bid for the title with fond hopes of taking the heart out of Elkhart.
And a strong bid it was at that. 24-7 doesnt sound close but after Elkhart's top-heavy
scores in other games, those at the game will testify it was close enough.
When we say determined we mean determined. Mishawaka fell victim to Elkhart's
fast traveling backfield and Elkhart scored early in the first quarter. The try for point
failed. lt was then that IVlishawaka's fight stood out. Undaunted by the lead, the Maroon
took the ball to Elkhart's go yard line from where a long pass, Lindzy to Brady, scored
a touchdown, the first time a team had crossed a goal line at Rice Field and the first score
made against Elkhart's wonder team this season. lvlishawaka made good the point after
touchdown, and for the first time this season Elkhart was on the small end of the score.
But only for a time. The Big Blue and White team began to function with all the vim
and pep it has shown and the result was the same old story, a powerful, fast-moving, hard-
hitting superior opponent against an opponent battling for every inch of gain.
Elkhart was not to be denied. A pass, Peterson to Stoner, put the Elkhartans in the
lead again and the half ended IZ to 7.
The second half found the Blue and White still working hard and the score at the end
was 24 to 7.
Mishawaka possessed a team of sportsmen. A hard-hitting team and a snappy outfit.
What more tribute can be paid to them. They fought hard and they lost. At least they
BICKN ELL GAME
At last, the championship football game of scholastic Indiana. Elkhart, champion of
the north and central part of Indiana and Bicknell, the pride fo the Wabash Valley, took
the field on a cold, raw afternoon for the crucial game of the season, and the hopes and
hearts of many thousands of fans all over the state went with one or the other. All Indiana
was interested in the game.
Five thousand fans were on hand long before the whistle started the game. But at last,
the field had been partially cleared of the snow which had fallen during the night and the
battle was on.'
Elkhart took the oval and began a steady smashing line drive that carried them within
the so-called scoring distance of the Golden Tornado's goal line. But a break of the game,
a slippery ball, a bad pass, and Keith, a Bicknell half, grabbed it out of the atmosphere
and dashed for the goal, the Elkhart goal this time. But a Heet Elkhart back had him
stopped. Turnock brought him down on the three-yard line. But Bicknell was not to be
denied now. IVlcCrary carried it over on the next play. The try for goal failed.
Again Elkhart was trailing an opponent and in a championship game this time.
Pennanf , gzwcflnnual A
The thought struck horror to the hearts of eleven men representing Elkhart Hi. Elkhart
would not-must not-be defeated now!
Again Elkhart's line-hammering, end-running offense brought the oval far into Bicknell's
territory and this time did not stop until it had pushed it across.
The second half opened with the score a tie, 6 to 6. Elkhart scored early in the half
when Peterson on fourth down, plunged his way over the goal.
At last came the end, but not before Elkhart had pushed two more touchdowns over
the goal and Peterson had made a beautiful field goal from the go-yard line.
The 'Golden Tornado, the Pride of the Wabash Valley, had been turned back with

by notable writers. '
Peterson was chosen half-back on all mythical elevens and was described by 'iHeze"
Clark as the best high school back of the last decade. K
Dellinger and Martin were picked as the tackles on Clark's team and were given credit
for much of Elkhart's success. Dellinger was also picked by Dick Miller of the Indianapolis
News as tackle.
NEXT YEAR'S SQUAD
Again Boone has provided for the future in developing his second string players. Al-
though we can hardly expect as successful a season next year, still we can be satisfied that
with this bunch we won't be far from the top.
Hughes, Stoner and Roderick, all ends, Martin and Lambdin, tackles, Crofoot, Virgil
and Allen, guards, and Miller, fullback, are all left from this year's first string and should
be able to carry the main bulk of the season. Weybright and johnson are quarter-backs of
good ability who should go big next year. Gordon johnson is a dependable man, and Deloe,
Fogle, Platt, Lott and others should develop to round out a strong eleven for the Blue
and White. -

Tribute to the King! The wizard of the West. Coach Boone at the beginning of the
season said little but went to work in a quiet manner and moulded together an eleven which
dashed through a hard schedule with comparative ease to a state championship.
The work of the "Big Blue Avalanche" which swept aside team after team in its march
to victory was guided by his steady hand. The record of the team is about as great a tribute
to Boone as could be given. Nine games won, none lost and five men on the All-State Eleven
tells the story.
Any man that can turn out a team that registers 414 points in nine games, 46 points
every 50 minutes of play-and that is about as close as Michigan ever came to a point a
minute team-certainly has a system that can be depended on not only one season but
The defense was the best in the state, only I3 points being scored against his proteges.
There was no star, except the brilliant Peterson who couldn't have helped but stand
out in any company, but a powerful machine that functioned with an irresistable regularity
all the time.
Then, too, he developed a cluster of substitutes who could step in at any time and fit
in the machine almost as well as the man whose place they had taken.
Coach Boone has developed a team that will never be forgotten. Most of the team
graduate, but it is the system rather than the players which grinds out the victories. And
Boone has that system safely stored away for another "Big Blue Avalanche." i
just as long as we have Boone and his system we'll have football teams that will grind
out victories, perhaps not by as large scores as the wonder team, but victories nevertheless.
Long Live the King!

THE BASKETBALL TEAM
By KARL W. VETTER
Producing a Sectional and Regional championship team out of a squad boasting of
but two regulars from last year, is but another feat which spreads far the fame of the revered
name of C. C. Boone.
Winning its way to the state championship contest at Indianapolis, the Blue and White
basketeers completed a brilliant season on the hardwood, even though Elkhart lost its first
game at the state to Evansville Central. The team made a record under many handicaps
which is the best in years.
Coach Boone was forced to send his squad of 25 boys through thin paces in the cramped,
box-like Beardsley School gymnasium for the first month and a half of the season, A very
late start caused by the football season afforded the quintet but a little more than a week
of practice before the Blue took the floor against the Michigan City net-men at the lake-side
city. Playing a fast, quick game Elkhart eked out a bare Z5-24 victory in its first start.
Traveling homeward with one victory securely held, Coach Boone took his warriors to
the county seat the next evening and there the Blue and White looked like championship
material with a hard-earned 42-12 victory over the Crimson of Goshen.
QContinued on page IIOD
Pennanf Q23 cvflnnuczl ll
"Click" is the only member of the squad who
has played four years on the varsity as a regular.
Peterson was an important cog in the great
basketball machine which represented' E. I-I. S.
so well this year and it is only to be regretted
that the "Swede" was handicapped by bad ankles
in all tournament competition this year. Elkhart
may be justly proud of "Pete" for his basketball
ability even though he had never seen a football
field and never touched a cinder track.
John was the smallest member of the big Blue
and White Avalanche but none the less note-
worthy for that, "Jiggs" without much other
preparation made the varsity and won the hearts
of our fair co-eds with his brilliant playing quali-
ties. Like Stoner, "Jiggs" was also at his best
and won a place on the mythical all-Regional
five. This was John's last year on the team.
As 'AJiggs" is a reason 1 for the name of the
Big Blue Avalanche, so "Stupe" does full justice
to the title. Being the largest man on the squad
didn't hamper Joe's movements and he was one
of the fastest guards in the northern part of the
state. Joe's ability as a guard went far in paving
the way for Elkhart's victories in the Sectional
and Regional tourneys. This was Joe's second
and last year on the varsity.
Pennanf gi? cflnnuczl
WAYNE STE I MER
Although being high scorer for the team is a
story in itself-to let that one fact stand under
'ASti's" name would be doing him a great injustice.
"Sti" had more than a good eye. He was fast,
a good passer, and possessed of that never-say-die
spirit which everyone admires. Steimer, like
Peterson, has played his last garre of basketball
under the colors of E. H. S. and has served the
school gallantly, bringing much honor to it.
J OI-IN POSEY
"When duty whispers low, 'Thou must,' the
youth replies, AI will!' If being a steady player
meant everything, "Jahn" would have been the
star of the team. Posey had a habit of stepping
in at the opportune time and save many a good
ganfe for E. H. S., and oh, yes, wasn't it he who
put the long shot through the hoop at Michigan
City and turned defeat into victory at the last
moment? And wasn't it he who took "Pete's"
place when that worthy was disabled and carried
the colors of the Blue and White so admirably
in the Sectional? None other. john has another
year to play.
A'Clif" is only a Soph but already has played
two years on the team. A hard worker. Stoner
always has deserved the praise of the student
body. His play improved as the season progressed
and he was at his best in the Fort Wayne Regional
where he was so well thought of by the sport
scribes that he was placed above all others centers
in the tourney.
Perlnanf y Q23 oqnnuczl
Another one of those small but efhcient guards
which Elkhart boasted of, "Ev" made the team
and a letter for himself with his knowledge of
the game and his willingness to learn. "Ev" was
a good dribbler, and his whirlwind performances
on the Seconds earned for him a place on the
varsity tournament squad. Everett has another
year of competition.
"Tuffy" was a valuable sub on the team this
year and made his presence felt whenever he
managed to get into the line-up which wasn't
infrequent. Possessing excellent guarding quali-
ties, "Tuffy" was used on many occasions to
watch the star of an opposing team, and it must
be admitted that he Hlled this not easy position
in good shape. I-le is a senior and so will be lost
to future E. I-I. S. teams through graduation,
Of all the basket ball "eyes" on the squad,
none were better than those which MSoup"
' directed. Walter was a good man and played in
quite a few games. This was "Soups" first and
last year on the varsity and perhaps in years
when Elkhart was not so prosperous, "Soup"
would have rated a regular berth,
l Pennant aw cvqnnual
If ability to hit the hoop in practice meant
everything, Lloyd would be a regular, Experience
was a thing which Wallie did not possess and
was often too excited in the second team games
in which he participated to allow his "eye" to
get working. Wallace played but two minutes
in a varsity game but was a valuable man on the
reserve list on the tournament squad.
"Bill" is an addition from Goshen where he was
a regular in his first year. Although he failed to
make a regular berth he made the squad with ease.
Amdsen was a dangerous relief man and a good
player. He should be a good man next year.
"Gordie" was nothing but a Freshman, but oh,
what a game he could put up. Coming into high
school from Central where he had played for two
years, johnson went after a berth with deter-
mined efforts and was rewarded at the end of the
season after playing with the seconds most of the
time. I-Ie was a bit inexperienced but should be
a valuable athlete in the three years which he
has yet to play.

The next week-end found Elkhart at Milford, facing the whirlwinds of the peppermint
valley. Milford, even one of Elkhart's friendly competitors committed an unforgiven act
when the Blue and Gray administered a 3q-33 trouncing to an indifferent Blue and White
team. Things went from bad to worse. The next evening Elkhart went down before Burn-
ham's Blue-clads at South Bend, 43-28.
Two more defeats added to the chagrin of the team and Boone, and to the consternation
of the hopeful fans. La Porte found the Blue and White easy with lame fortune smiling
on the fortunes of the Leitzman-coached team. Boones' players battled the La Porte
warriors on even terms during the game but the accurate basket-shooting of the winners,
often approaching the so-called sloppy shoping was too much for Elkhart and as far as
that goes, for any team. The score was S2-ZQ. Mishawaka then broke the hearts of Elkhart
rooters in twain with a 27-22 win in the first game in the new gym which had at last been
Five straight defeats were registered when again Elkhart lost to South Bend at Elkhart
in a listless game, 44-31.
The county tourney came next and after a week of hard, determined practice, the
Blue quintet pulled into the county seat for the finish game Saturday morning with Goshen
furnishing opposition. A battle-royal resulted. Elkhart maintained a light lead until near
the end when through the Goshen wild, unaimed shots which proved good, the Elkhartans
lost out 31-25.
Six straight defeats and two victories looked bad, very bad, for Elkhart, and the next
week-end Elkhart took a fast game from Nappanee 43-3o. Elkhart appeared to be hitting
on all six and the victory was a foundation upon which Elkhartans began to build hopes.
Going at the fastest, surest, deadliest pace of the entire season, the Blue and White over-
whelmingly defeated the strong Warsaw team. 47-2o the next evening. Many consider
this game the one in which Elkhart showed the most stuff during the season.
Elkhart took two more games the following week, Mishawaka falling 32-ZQ on Friday
and the Goshen outfit taking a like fate 30-26 on Saturday.
ln a special Alumni game to raise funds for the fieldhouse at Rice Park, Elkhart I-ligh
trod mercilessly on the former stars 4Q-26. On the next Saturday, Elkhart reviewed matters
with La Porte with a brilliant 35733 victory over the Leitzman-coached lads.
Plymouth was Elkhart's next opponent and broke the Elkhart string of six straight
victories with a 46m3S win over the Blue and White. Elkhart finished its regular schedule
with an impressive victory over New Paris, 56m23.
ln the sectional tourney, Elkhart romped off with the championship. Three hard-
earned victories played between the hours of II A. M. and Q P. lvl. Saturday. Elkhart
defeated Millersburg, the county champs 26-7, downed Nappanee in the semi-finals, 34-21,
and then chalked up its third victory of the season against Goshen, when the Crimson proved
but a stepping stone to the Regional before the terrific, relentless charges of Elkhart. The
score was 35-IQ.
At the Regional, Elkhart looked even better and it was on the showing of the locals
there at Fort Wayne that many predicted that Elkhart would "go far" in the State Tourney
the next week. South Whitley fell before the Blue and White in the first game, 32-18,
and then succeeded in handing the highly touted Auburn five a 30-I8 drubbing in the finals
for Elkhart. 1
At the State meet, Elkhart's first appearance in that fast company since 1916, the
performance of the Blue and White was marred by but one thing-Elkhart lost. But
the story is not half told by that. Elkhart played Evansville, one of the hardest, fastest,
and tightest games the down-states saw during the year. The game was one of the closest
and hardest-fought of the tourney and Elkhart need not hang her head in shame because
of the adverse 2o-14 score. With Peterson crippled it is no wonder that Elkhart failed to
function smoothly, but even so Elkhart played a great game that day.
Elkhart's success at basketball fell but a bit short of the phenomenal foot-ball string
of victories. Elkhart's record includes I4 victories and 8 defeats besides' the winning of the
Sectional and Regional championships.

t The year IQ25 was a notable one in many respects for E. H. S. and not the least of
them was the completion and opening of our spacious new gymnasium.
The gym was first used when the Elkhart first and second teams met the lvlishawaka
teams, but was not formally opened until the following week-end when the South Bend
teams had the honor of meeting the Blue-clads.
Mr. A. L. Trester, secretary of the Indiana High School Athletic Association gave the
dedicatory speech of the evening and was enthusiastically received by the i8oo fans who
were present. Preceeding Mr. Trester, Superintendent j. E Wiley made the presentation
speech and john Pettit made a speech of acceptance for the students and Principal j. W.
Holdeman for the faculty and community.
The gymnasium is the latest word in construction, seating accomodations, and Hoor
space. There are places for i8oo people and zooo have been crowded in at different times
this year. 670 reserved seats with backs, and bleachers on the south side provide for the
seating. Folding chairs around the track take care of many more fans and standing room
makes it possible to take care of two thousand or more.
The floor is entirely separated from the seats by a wall running around it with steps
leading down from the east and west ends. The Hoor measures 76 by 56 feet and is of hard-
There is ample locker room space provided on both ends and under the main entrance
doors and seats. The boys' lockers occupy the west end where two spacious locker-rooms
and two showers take care of them. There is extra locker space under the seats on the north
side. The girls' lockers are on the opposite side of the gym and are entirely adequate.
A running track encircles the gymnasium above the floor and seats. The track is one
of the best in this part of the state. It is 135 yards around and is cork carpet on hardwood
with the curves rounded sufficiently to allow runners to make the turns at top speed.
INTER-CLASS BASKETBALL CHAMPS
As usual, the contest to decide which class had the best basket tossers was held again
this year. At the close of the season, the juniors and Seniors were found to have a tie in
their percentage. And so a final game was arranged between the two to play off the tie.
The Seniors easily defeated the near-grads and acquired the inter-class championship
crown for the second time in their career, having won it the first time as Sophs.
The Seniors had a very favorable season, dropping but two hard fought games, one
to the juniors and one to the Freshmen. The Freshmen gave the biggest surprise to the
league by defeating the over-confident Seniors in the last games of the regular schedule.
The percentages of the league were:

CLASS A POST SEASON CHAMPIONS
Por the third year, the Class A basketball tournament was organized to decide a cham-
pionship. The regular varsity basketball men chose their teams from eligible high school
men, The winner, Brannan's five, won the championship by three straight victories. Peter-
son's team, the winners last year, were the runners up for the title, defeating two of the
strongest teams in the contest and then falling, in a hard game, before Tuffy's team.
The Class A tournament always affords a great deal of excitement and also aids the
development of future stars.
The players on Brannan's team were Vetter, Carlo, Oakes, Rose, Fields, l-Iosler and
Peterson's squad was composed of Lambdin, johnson, Paulson, Pettit, O. Wilhelm,
Roderick and l-loldeman.

Since the opening of the new gymnasium some thirty or forty girls have been enjoying
its advantages on Tuesday evening from 5 :3o to 7 and Friday noons from 11:30 to 12:30,
Basket ball was the only sport organized and about a dozen girls composed the Varsity
team and subs. The girls made a very good showing in the three games played although
they were not able to defeat their opponents, due to lack of practice and the fact that for
several years no games have been played. The girls are already planning for next years
activities and are looking forward to a more successful season.
The girls not making either first or second teams organized into teams and have played
a series of games. A great many beginners were initiated into the arts of basket ball.
At the end of the season the first team girls, as captains, chose teams from among the
others and played a series of tournament games.
The purpose of the whole organization has been to furnish the girls of Elkhart High
School a period of wholesome recreation and fun.

THE NEW AUDITORIUM
A long looked for day has come! The Auditorium is now a reality! For ten years or
more, the student body of E. H. S. has looked forward to the time that they could declare
themselves proud possessors ofan auditorium and certainly, with such a one as is ours,
no one need be ashamed to call it his own.
If waiting for so long has had anything to do with the building itself, it was certainly
worth while to wait. On Thursday evening, April 2, the School Board formally presented
the Auditorium to the students. lt is hoped that the users of the building will realize to the
fullest extent the meaning of such a fine meeting place, and will show their appreciation
in the future.
Elkharts' Auditorium is said by many to be the largest and most beautiful for the size
of the city, of any in the middle west. And this is by no means an exaggeration. The Audi-
torium is a large room, with a balcony and has seating accomodations for nearly two thou-
sand. The decorations are exceedingly beautiful, and the lighting effects are remarkable.
Most of the interior work is done by hand, and consists of artistic stenciling on walls and
ceiling. Hanging chandeliers furnish the light, along with wall brackets.

but George doesn't approve of his painting. Olivia tries to help out, by telling George
Brian is a nice fellow. A Mr. Pim comes to George on a business matter and incidentally
says something about a Mr. Telworthy, CO1ivia's former husbandj Of course, things are
all in a muddle for quite a while until lVIr.,Pim, comes to the rescue. I-le hadmerely confused
two names. Olivia fmally persuades George into letting Dinah and Brian get married.

'LADAM AND EVA"
The Captain of lndustry, Mr. King, can not manage his two daughters Eva and julie.
The daughters, together with Clinnie, julie's husband, and Doctor Delamater, persuades
Mr. King that he needs a trip as he is ill. Mr. King and his manager, Adam Smith decide
to exchange places, and Mr. King takes a business trip to the Amazon and Mr. Smith
is father of the King family. The family rebels, because they wanted to spend a lot more
money and not be under any authority. Mr. Smith faked up a story to the effect that Mr.
Kings Rubber Company has gone bankrupt and their jewels have been stolen. They all
go to New jersey on a farm, the old boyhood home of Mr. King, and raise chickens. The
family has learned the worth of money, and after they have made a success of the chicken
farm, Mr. King comes back unexpectedly. I-le is surprised and very grateful to Adam when
he finds out that he has made something worth while of his children. Adam and Eva fall
in love, and although Eva is engaged to Lord Andrew, when he discovers the fact, Lord
Andrew remains just a friend of the family and Adam and Eva become engaged.

Shirley Rossmore is the daughter of a supreme court judge who is about to be removed
from office, because he has rendered decisions while fair, were against John Burkett Ryder,
a king of finance. Mr. Ryder schemes against Judge Rossmore and the Judge is about to
be removed from office, through the influence of Mr. Ryder in the Senate. Shirley has
just returned from a trip abroad, and does not know of her fathers disgrace. On thesteamer
she meets Mr. Ryder's son, Jefferson, and they fall in love. The daughter tries to save her
father, who is very ill from worry, by pretending to write Mr. Ryders' auto-biography.
While at his house she finds letters dealing with the business, and which will help Judge
Rossmore very much. Through her efforts, Shirley is able to break Mr. Ryder's self-willed
pride and thus save her fathers life, honor and position. lt is needless to say Jefferson
and Shirley become engaged.
"The Lion And The Mousen was presented on the evening of April 4, in the new audi-
torium under the very capable direction of Miss Sherrick. The Dramatics Club had been
working on the play a long time before its presentation so that a very pleasing and unusual
success was the result. '
Catherine Ort, John Pettit, and Clare Randolph carried the brunt of the play. The
work of these three was well-nigh professional in its interpretation and appearance. They
are deserving of a world of commendation for their achievements in the histrionic art.
Outstanding among the rest of the cast were Rex Lloyd, Polly Young, Art Ware, and
Kenneth Mikkelson. CP. K. NOELJ A
"The Unseen," a very clever one-act comedy by Alic Gurstenberg was presented by
the Club several times. Jeffery Baldwin, a young architect draws plans for a model city.
His wife Lois helps him save by doing the housework with the help of l-lulda, the Swedish
maid. The plans of the city had been narrowed down to three contestents and Jeffery
expected a telegram, telling him of the choice. But no telegram came and a week later
when l-lulda dusted, she found the telegram she had mislaid, and forgotten to give to
Jeffery. The telegram stated that he had won the contest and that he was to reply at once,
or else it would go to another contestent, a Mr. Parker. Of course, Jeffery has lost the con-
test and l-lulda her position. Just before she leaves, they see by the paper that Parker was
killed while enroute to the new city and thus Jeffery's life is saved. l-lulda is called an angel
and is told she must live with them forever. '

was returned to the Truth. The subscription price was 5oc a semester.
ln addition to the regular edition, a football extra was published by the Pennant.

The junior Music Study Club has been one of the most popular and beneficial clubs
of E. l-I. S. this year. lt has enlarged its membership to go active members and I2 associate
members. Regular meetings are held monthly in the various members' homes, where pro-
grams are given by the members. Business meetings are held in school whenever needed.
In November, eight members represented the club at a District Meeting of the State
Federation of Music Clubs, at South Bend, where a report of the club was given by the
president. In December, thirty members went to the Mishawaka Orphans I-lome and made
the little folks happy with gifts and musical selections. In january the best talent of the
club was selected and a program given for the Matinee Musical at the Womens League
I-lome. ln April the club gave a japanese Musical Tea in the Little Theatre, which proved
a big success. ln May a musical program was given at the County Farm. During Music
Week free concerts were given in the school for anyone who wished to attend. Every other
month the club has given a program in the Music Room, the proceeds of which go in the
club treasury. The club has organized a saxophone sextet, a string quartet, two string
trios, and an orchestra of twenty-five pieces.
Next year the club is planning to bring the Oberlin Cilee Club and some great artists
to Elkhart, as well as to put on their own evening concerts and an operetta.

The purpose of the Forum is to stimulate interest in oratory and all branches of public
speaking. This organization is composed of twenty-five members, Six from each class and
one at large. Every applicant must be able to present a good speech before he can be
admitted to the Forum. The debate teams were backed financially and morally by this
organization. The school was well represented by the President of the Forum, Niemann
Brunk, in the county discussion league contest which he won easily. The Forum at the
end of the term will present a silver loving cup to the member winning the most points
in Public Speaking. Mr. Nebergal is the sponsor of this organization.

Both affirmative and negative debate teams have been very successful this year. The
affirmative winning two and losing two, and the negative winning all four debates.
The affirmative team was handicapped by sickness and inelegibility. Niemann Brunk
was the only one remaining on the team throughout the season. Other members of the
team were Edith Mac Alavy, Victor Spathelf, Adeline Horwich and Stanley Miller. The
clever rebuttal speeches of this team have been a stumbling block to its opponents.
The negative team was composed of Aubrey Dunn, Inez Levin and Howard Coombs.
These three showed splendid team work in all four debates and their forceful speaking
tore to pieces the arguments of the opposition as the scores show.

Much credit is due lvlr. Nebergal, the coach, for his efforts in turning out such debate
teams as represented the school this year. Mr. Gill sponsored the team which remained
at home on the night of the debate. Deverne Steihm deserves no small amount of credit as
alternate for the negative team. At the eleventh hour she would have been able to step
in any speaker's place and give a good account of herself.

Our Dramatics Club was organized for the First time last fall, under the direction of
Miss Dorothy M. N. Sherrick.
Under the able supervision of Miss Sherrick, all the Club members have shown their

the time so spent.

The aim of the Club was to produce a series of interesting one-act plays and at least
one long, serious, worth-while drama during the year.
It is the hope of the present society that the spirit of really gaining something,-in
the way of self-assurance and poise, and at the same time giving pleasure and enjoyment to
those who are interested through some really good plays will be perpetuated in E. H. S.
by the members of the Dramatics Clubs to come.

Another year has rolled by and finds "The Livest Grganization in E. I-I. S." closing a
most successful season of meetings and parties.
The sponsor and officers who so capably "piloted the ship" through the year, are
responsible in no small measure for the success of the organization. The first semester
Marjorie Mathias was elected captaing Marjorie Sanderson, First Mate, joe Butler and
Mary Alice Timmins carried off the duties of writing the members and collecting money
from the crew. The second semester Marjorie Mathias was again at the head of the stern.
joe Butler was elected to run the ship when Marjorie Wasn't about. Mary Alice Timmins
and Marjorie Sanderson able assitants.
The Rah-Rah organization of this year is deserving of much credit for the immense
part they had in the school activities.
The Mass Meetings staged by them, have earned them much attention not to be quickly
The organization has also distinguished itself by, its successful parties. The most
successful social masterpiece in the history of the organization was the foot ball party given
in honor of the i'State Champs."
The hall was beautifully decorated and appropriate favors were given out, refreshments
were served. The most enticing strains of music kept the dancers' feet awhirl. lf l were
to write from now until vacation, I could tell you only half the things and fun that was had
at the foot ball party. When it comes to staging successful parties the Rah Rah organization
rises to perfection.
As a means of helping to fill the organizations coffers it was decided to sell balloons,
in the shape of foot-balls, at one of the games. The demand became so great that every
member was busy. Even if the supply was less than the demand, the profit obtained was
quite a comfortablesum. Oh yes! The Rah-Rah's sold pencils, badges and pennants too.
No wonder they could afford to "put on" ,such snappy parties.

Pennant Q25 cflnnuczl
Of the social events in E. I-I. S. the junior-Senior Prom seems to be the most successful,
this being given by the juniors of 'z5.
On Saturday of May 24th the year 1oz4, over zoo of us,,a1l arrayed in our best Sunday-
go-to-meetin garbs, gathered at the Senior door of the "House of Knowledge". From there
we all motored to the Tavern at Christiana Lake, where, upon arriving,-with the helpful
hands of the male class, the Tavern was made nice and cozy. Then to our great dispair
who should we see but one of the smallest members of our class, but,-not the least Cguess
who?j, come in all shivering, from the cool waters of the Christiana.
We then made ourselves useful by dancing to the harmonious strains of the player
piano and by gossiping, until--the word 'lEats" was heard and then you can imagine
what happened, Yes, we all rushed to the Dining Room, and Ch, Boy, such eats, they sure
were good. After this part of the program was over, CSh!-this was probably the best part
of all for the boys,j we all went down to the beautifully decorated pavillion where we again
danced, but to the most striking dance music by the famous Steimrich Orchestra of Elkhart.
Everybody seemed to be having a gay time throwing confetti and blowing up balloons
'neverthing, then before we knew it, it was time for our party to end and everybody went
home with an expression of a good time on their face, never to be forgotten.

IFE would be pretty drab and M
commonplace were there no X
music in the world. In our '
hours of sorrow there is comfort in
sweet music, and no joy is com-
plete without its accompaniment
To you who are about to leave your
schooldays and join in the worka- A -
day world we commend music as li K
a cheerful companion andapower-
ful friend. In college, at home, ,
at business luncheons-wherever
you go the man or woman Who x I
can produce music is always in 'I
demand, always respected and always favored.
You need music in your lives-music of your own making
-because it gives vent to pent-up energies and yields
inspiration during those dull moments that come oc-
casionally to everyone.
Learn to play a wind instrument. A wind instrument is
not difficult to master, and may be easily carried any-
where. The few months spent in acquiring the ability to
play, will be repaid a thousand times as you go through
life, repaid in countless hours of pleasure, in prestige
among your fellows, in self-satisfaction.
And when you choose the instrument that is to be your
life companion, be sure to choose well. Buy the best the
market affords. It is built right here in your home town,
and is engraved with a name which for nearly fifty years
has been the acknowledged leader of the musical world.

William had become the proud owner
of a pig and insisted on caring for it
himself. After a few weeks in which the
pig did not thrive very well the father
"William I am afraid you are not
feeding your pig enough, I notice he is
not fattening up."
"I don't want to fatten him up yet,"
answered the young stockman, "I'm
waiting till he gets as long as I want him,
then I'll widen him out."
Mother-'iWhat kind of a show did
daddy take you to, Buddy?"
Buddy-"It was a dandy Mother.
The ladies were dressed in stockings up

HIS Spring shows a decided change in the easy
fitting styles. The broad shoulders are there.
The loose effect. The straight wide trousers,
but these new coats are snugger at the hips,
their effect is more athletic. Buttons are lower, too,
a long, rather wide lapel is the thing. Cut in just the right
manner. The new suits for spring are most striking style, the
most appropriate for vigorous young American business men,
that we have ever seen. We have this suit in the best looking
and most masculine version - SOCIETY BRAND. The fabrics,
too, strike a bold note this spring. There's a wonderful array of
light colors, rivaling the popularity of the more conservative
shades hitherto dominant. We have an extensive assortment of
SOCIETY BRAND CLOTHES, famous for their correct cut, made
up in the choicest fabrics, many of them to be seen nowhere else.
