With this in view, let us peer into the past history of this institute where " Knowledge is Power. " The first school house, a one-story frame building, was built in 1838 on the east side of Second street, between Jackson and Washington. Six years later this building burned, and for four years, until a new building was erected on the original site, the three-story building, known as Tammany Hall, was used for school purposes. In 1S41. a long, foui ' -room, frame building was Iniilt on tlie corner of High and Second streets, where the High School now stands, and this was used until it became so old and shaky that people began to doubt its safety. This building was destroyed by fire in 1867. The next year a new four-story brick building was constructed on the same site, at a cost of forty-five thousand dollars. Many people denounced this as a piece of extravagance, and predicted that it would always be too roomy tor the number of children in Elkhart. It some of those people could have had a glimpse of the future, and seen the crow-ds of pupils come thronging in and out of Central building and High School today, it would have seemed incredible. Sixteen years later the High School needed more room and an addition of eight rooms was built adjoining the Central build- ing on the west. In the new building the High School and reci- tation rooms w-ere on the first floor, the upper grammar .grades occupied the second, and the library, museum and superintend- ent ' s oflice were in the room connecting the old and new build- ings. The dark and poorly ventilated rooms in this building, and the crowded condition of the rooms made it necessary to provide better accommodations To meet this demand, it was planned to . erect a new High School building at the .iunction of Vistula and Lexin.gton avenue, which was then Pigeon street. While this new- building was being built, the High School held its sessions in the fourth story of the Central building. After climbing those lon.g flights of stairs, the pupils felt that theirs was a high education in spirit and in truth. It was but Seven ppttnattt 192B Ammal fitting, however, that they should do physically what they were compelled to do mentally — climb to unusual heights to meet their teachers on a corresponding level. The new building (now the Samuel Strong School) was dedicated in January ol ' 93, and the class of that year was the first to graduate from the new school. Some of the most notable changes in High School work, which began to manifest them- selves then, and which we still adhere to, were the prominent - place given to history and literature, the high standard required for graduation, and the introduction of new branches of study. At this time, the grammar grades were removed from the High School and the building was devoted entirely to High School work. New teachers were also secured, making a total of ten for the High School. The assembly room with a seating capacity of over two hundred, and four recitation rooms constituted the second floor, while four more recitation rooms, with cloak rooms adjacent, the library and superintendent ' s office occupied the first. A chemical laboratory and a physical science room were fitted with the necessary appliances for studying those subjects in a mod- ern and systematic manner. This building was heated and venti- lated by the Smead system and lighted by gas. This school was used until 1912. the last class to graduate from it, being at that date. The present building was occupied in September, 1912. The dedication exercises were held in a session room. Friday eve- ning, November 22, 1912. Because of the lack of a large audi- torium, the exercises were to be simple, until the auditorium to the south could be completed, in which event there were to be larger and more formal dedication exercises. During the past two years there have been additions to Elkhart High School which are outstanding to us. The first really big event was the completion of our Gymnasium, one of the finest in the state. We will all remember how much this was needed and how thankful we felt when it was really fin- ished. The next outstanding addition was that of our Audito- rium, which was dedicated Thursday evening. April, 1925, by the School Board. We also realize how fortunate we are to have this work of art and beauty which has been needed for so many years and which we all agree is the finest and best in northern Indiana. We hope and know that Elkhart High School will continue to grow and improve and have the very best success that such an institute well deserves where " Knowledge is Power. " —LOTA WEBB.

COMPTON F. W. GAMPHER J. L. HARMAN Through the fine co-operation of our school board, E. H. S. has steadily grown in size and spirit. Due directly to the efforts of these competent men we now have a fine athletic field, Rice Park, a gymnasium, the best auditorium in the Middle West, and a new field house. The student body realizes the earnest endeavors of these men and wishes to thank them most heartily for their ceaseless efforts in behalf of E. H. S. Fourteen f nnattt i32fi Annual J. F. WILEV, Superintendent. A.B.. DePauw University. A.M., Illinois University. Mr. ' iley is a man of sound wisdom who has given encouragement to e ery progres- sive movement predominent in the schools and city. There is a sense of security about the welfare of E. H. S. — a security that can be directly attributed to the calm judgment and practical wisdom of our superintendent. During his six years here Mr. Wiley has been held in high esteem by the people of the city and in educational circles throughout the state. Mr. Wiley ' s ability ma}- be judged to his credit by his accomplishments alone. J. W. HOLDEMAN, Principal. Graduate Indiana State Normal. A.M.. Indiana University. Mr. Holdeman has never been too busy to grant an interview to any student, nor has he ever done anj ' thing less than his utmost to help one in need. During his administration there has been a steady and pronounced growth, a broadening of the inner life of the school and a reaching out for those things that make a better and a more rounded school life. ]Mr. Holdeman came to us as a very competent leader, and now, in his sixth year as principal, we find him one who has not only gained the admiration of students, faculty and alumni, but of all who come in contact with him.

Cutler Twenty-nine pennant i92fi Annual MARIE ACKLEY " An excellent student with time to be popular. " Jlember Rah Rah Girls and ilusic Club; Social Chairman. lA: Social Committee, IIA; Social Committee, Rah Rah Girls, IIA; Junior Class Play. Marie has been one of the most popular members of the class — as well as one of the class ' s best workers. Whenever we wanted some hard work done we called on Marie, and we were alwavs answered with a " Sure. I ' ll do it. " Marie ' s success in many lines has proved that she is able to do things, and she leaves E. H. S. with the admiration and best wishes of her many friends. The best of luck to you, Marie, EDWARD BARWICK " I dare do all that may become a man, who dares do ' more is none. " Ed hr-s helped our class in every way he thought fitting:. Through the four years of high school experience he has stored away many ideas that he feels will help him in later years. We are very glad to be able to have " Ed " graduate with us because he has had a fine spirit for E. H. S. Ambition will always help a student, and we know that he is ambitious. We are wishing him luck in whatever he de- sires to do after leaving the halls of E. H. S. GRACE ARTLEY— " Dimples " " There is a kind of character in thy life, That to the observer doth thy history fully unfold. " Grace is a girl who likes to eat candy and go to shows. She has not attended many of our class parties, but wherever she has been we know that she has made someone happy. She is a true friend and an an:iiable companion; her happy spirit has been a source of joy to all who know her. Aniatever Grace ' s mission in life may be, we know that she will fill it with the same success that she has shown in E. H. S. CHARLES ARTHUR BEURLE— " Art " " It is to work, but not too hard. " Social Committee, ' 22, ' 21;; Basketball, ' 22, ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26. Of Art ' s likes he says: " I can ' t decide which one I like best. " His .motto is: " I came, I saw. I conquered " — (this applying to any- thing but lessons). But " Art " is an " all-round " fellow, always ready to do what he is asked and to do it well. He intends to go to school in Iowa next year. Bon voyage, " Art " — you cannot fail. GLADYS ARCHER " It is the tranquil who accomplish much. Gladys is one of the few who has supported the class functions to the best of her ability. If he had been with us the full four years we know she would have taken more than her share of class work. We are not sure what her future career will be. but we know that Gladys will have the best of luck and be a grand success. Thirty f ttnant i92fi Annual AARON CHISS— " Cheese. " " Who mixed reason with pleasure and wisdom with mirth. " Freshman Baskt-tball. Aaron was one oX those fellows who made friends wherever he went and always found plenty of time to participate in class activi- ties. History proved to be his most interesting subject and was the source of many of his arg " uments. Aaron is famous for his humor and good nature. His ambition in life is to sit behind a polished desk and dictate to others. We wish you luck. Aaron. MARTHA L. BERRY — " Mart " " Keep your face ever toward the sunshine And the shadows will fall behind you. " Girls ' Basketball, ' 22. Our ilartha seems to say, " So this is Paris. " by her clothes. However, her pep and enthusiasm outshine everything else. " Mart " is guing to Miami University next year and after gradu- ating she is going to be an interior decorator. We ' ll all support you, " Mart. " when it comes to decorating our homes. There are three guiding stars in Martha ' s ambition: To receive a diploma, to be an interior de ' .orator. and. in the land of Romance, to acquire a title. ROLAND CROFOOT— " Smuck " " He who trains, shall succeed. " ' arsity Football. ' 24. 2: ■. Interclass Easkcll; all, 2r . His name will echo in the halls of E. H. S. for many a day. for he was a member of our famous Blue Avalanche that tore its way to State Championship. For his impressive work on the field, he was selected as All State guard. Roland ' s humor made him hundreds of friends. If his ambitions become a reality, we ' ll probably hear of him in later years, as a famous engineer. CECILLE F. BRADLEY— " Ci " " Speech is great, but silence is greater. " " Ci " is one of our members who has labored for the class all four years. Although she did not push herself into the li,me-light, we know she did her share of the class work. " Ci " loyally supported our class parties and activities. When she becomes a private secretary we know that she will refer with pride to E. H. S. where her expe- rience began. JOHN POSEY " A star once seen, always remembered. " Basketball— ' 22. ' 23. ' 24, ' 25: Tra.k— -23, ' 24, ' 25; Football— ' 24, ' 25. John takes his place at the head of our class as one of our lead- ing athletes. In every line of sport he has shone as a star. We all remember and v. ' ill remember his two years at football. Especially his ' 2G year. During the last four years he has played a wonderful game of basketball and now is outdoing his previous records. Also for three years he has been a prominent track star. We do not know of a more all around athlete or well-liked fellow in High School than John. Xext year at Purdue he will uphold the name of E. H. S. Good luck to you, John. Thirty-one pennant la fi Annual HELEN L. CUTLER " To those who know the e not, No words can paint, And those who know thee, Know aM words are faint. " Chairman Service Committee, ' 26; Dramatics Club; Rah Rah Club; Junior Class Play; Annual Staff; Pennant Staff. ' 2G. In her two years in E. H. S. Helen has made a host of friends, both among the students and the faculty. She has combined work and play successfully in her high school career and has proved herself one of the best students K. H. S. ever had. Helen ' s charming per- sonality, keen sense of humor and sympathetic nature make her a real pal. She has been a hard and earnest worker in all our school activities. We thank you, Helen, and wish you eyery happiness. LA VERNE DISNEY— " Dizzy " " Greatness is achieved only by hard work. " Annual Staff; Chairman Mutto Committee; Social Committee, IB; A ' ice-President, IIB; " Maid and the Middy " . ' 21; Freshman Inter- class basketball. La Verne has always been one of our most loyal supporters. He seems to have Midas ' " Touch of Gold. " for everything he attempts turns out a success. He has been a very popular me,mber of the Class of 26. and is most generally seen with " Cheese " and Harold. " Dizzy " has come to our rescue many times by his ability and willingness to do whatever is asked of him. Whatever La Verne ' s rhosen life work may be. we know that he will make his mark. MARY ESTHER DU N M I R E— " Teddy " " A quiet tongue showg a wise head. " Here is a girl that put itluck into her work and was rewarded for it. Her quiet manner with us mean.s that she is busy at some- thing that shall be well done. Esther has been busy with activities outside of school, but even those did not keep her from being a faith- ful E. H. S. student. We are sure her ambitions of going to Goshen College and making a happy home for some one will come true. A girl of good intent will always win. JOSEPH EUGENE FOY — " Mercury " " Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well. " Flower and Color Committee, ' 2. " ). Anyone who has been in tht south end of town knows " Mercury. " the speed demon at sodas. He liked our class so well that he has decided to graduate with us. We are sorry that we didn ' t meet " Mercury " earlier as he would have been a great help to the class. His next stop will be Notre Dame and then we hope he will become the greatest architectural engineer in the Middle West. We ' re all betting on you, " Mercury. " EDNA M. ENDERS— " E.d " " One in many . ' ike her. " Service Committee, ' 20. Outward appearance is sometimes deceiving. At least it was in Cdna ' s case. To most people she appeared to be a very shy maiden ).ut to those who knew her. she did not seem to be shy. Her grades showed that she was fond of school work and besides she found time to be a loyal supporter of the class. Edna could nearly always be . ' een with Elaine. Thirty-two Jp nnant i92fi Annual MILES W. H. JONES— " Smiler " " As happy as the day is long. " Art ( ' !uli. ' 2o, 24. " Z ' r, j n-aniatios Club. ' 24. ' 25; Social Commit- tfe. :;3. " 24. ' 23; Pennant Staff. ' 20; Annual Staff; Interclass Basket- ball. ' 24. ' 25. " Smiler " is our " human jr.ke book " who is always ready to join in any fun. His enthusiasm and spontaneity are always enjoyed and called for by his class mates. " Smiler " has always been a loyal and hard wnrker in all our school activities, and his friendly disposition has made him very popular with everyone. So here ' s to Miles — may he carry all through hfe that optimism and enthusiasm which has made him a popular member of the class of ' 2t3. V. LORENE NEU " A good disposition is more valuable than gold. " Ijorene is one of our ' ery in ■ere members. She is al va " s ready to do what is asked of her, and to do it v -ell. Wei find that she likes studying and playing- the piano. Her ambition is to become a pri- mary teacher. " When she is at North Manchester College we know that she will be an honor to our school. Lorene, we all wish you success and happiness throughout your life. ROBERT G. KILMER— " Bob " " A small spark makes a great fire. " Pennant Staff. ' 25; Secretary and Treasurer Hi-Y Club. ' 25; Fighting Foity; " Maid and Middy. " " 21; ' Treasure Island. " ' 21; " Cratchets Christmas " , ' 21. Bob was one of the most active members of our Hi-Y Club. He was a good student and always active in class affairs. At class meet- ings, parties, etc.. Bob was always " Johnny on the Spot. " His pep was never hindered by his smallness. Whenever anything worthwhile came up. Bob was one of the first to g:ive it his support. He has ambitions to become a drugist. Good luck to you. Bob, we know that you will achieve your ambition. GLADYS RUSSELL " Com ' mon sense is not a common thing. ' ' IIB President; Ring and Pin Committee, ' 24; Announcement Committee, ' 25. Gladys is a member that has never failed us in any work as- signed to her. As president of IIB elass she guided our ship of learn- ing: most efficiently. Work of this kind did not seem to interfere with lass work, for we could count on Gladys for good grades. Goshen has held .many interests for her. but she has not forgotten Elkhart Hi for which we are truly thankful. We know Chicago U. will be glad she chose to come there for further education. WALTER KOLLAT— " Soup " " My joy lies onward, my grief behind. " Basketball. ' 25. This year our roll call has been honored by the name of Walter KuUat. " Soup ' s " place, it seems, is more in some line of athletics than in school work. We are sorry he hasn ' t been more active at class functions but his reasons are probably better than some of our older members. Whatever " Soup " sets out to do. ne does it, and we are sure that is the way his a.mbition to become a Basketball Coach will develop. We hope he will succeed and come back to Elkhart High as Coach. Thirty-three pnnmtt inse Annual IRENE CASSELMAN— " Rene " " All women are naturally ambitious " Rene ' s chief hobbies are dancing and in general to have a good time. Although she never gave much time to class activities, she always remained loyal. Rene plans to take tip stenographic work. Maybe we ' ll find her secretary to the President so,me day. DONALD C. CLIPP— " Don " " Success crowns labor. " Donald was one of our very indu.striuus students. He was usually too busy studying to participate in class activities. His favorite hobby is going to school. His ambition is to sometime become Presi- dent of the United States. That ' s a long journey. Don, but don ' t give up the ship. Donald plans on taking up engineering at Purdue. MARY CHRISTOPHEL " A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance. " When there was a class meeting to attend Mar " Avould always be there. She " was quiet about everything she did. although her interest in school activities was ever keen. Mary wishes to attend the Elkhart Business College, then take up office work. If she is as faithful and steady there as she has been in E. H. S., she will have a pleasant career. A steady, well determined spirit always wins; a smile goes a long way toward success. HAROLD FIRESTONE— " Sticks " " His drums speak volumes though his lips are silent. " Band and Orcliestra. Harold was another one of our silent members. However, he was not so silent that no one ever heard of him. for he proved himself quite a drummer while playing in the band and orchestra. He dreams of being an aeronautical engineer. We look forward to great things from Harold in the future because he is of the type that succeeds. ANNA LOUISE CU LP— " Shortie " " No duty could overtake her. No need hep will overrun. Whatever our lips could ask her — Her hands the work have done. " Vice-President. lA; Service Conunittte. IIA; Social Committee. IIB; Dramatics Club. ' 26. Shortie does not make a fuss over the work she does — we all know she wMll do it and very well. A spirit for E. H. S. that never wavers. Here ' s a character of sincerity, loyalty and understanding, all combined with the spirit of youth. Chicago is her favorite city. She says her hobby is going back there for visits. We know her am- bition for doing something worth while will be realized — maybe at Purdue next year — who knows? Anna Louise, you have the good wishes of all for every success. Thirty-four f j nnant la e Annual EDITH ERICKSON " The world is no better if we worry, Life is no longer if we hurry. " Did you ever see Edith when she was not in a liappv-go-lucky mood? The most pressing things of life this child casts a ' side. She will get there just the same. Edith is cheery and true. While in our halls of learning, she chose to take the Commercial Course and was seen in the type-writing room most frequently. In some office she will prove herself very useful, a.s that is her aim. We are wishing her the very best of good luck. HOWARD FOX— " Foxy " " Great hopes make great men. " ■■Foxy " has made his inark in the class through hard work. He did his work in a quiet, reserved way, but nevertheless, he did it well. He likes to study, especially Geology, which is indeed his hobby. ■ ' Foxy ' " is going to Wisconsin University next year where be is going to study to be a corporation lawyer. Our best wishes to you. Howard. We know j ' ou will succeed. HARRIET FRASER " A good disposition is more valuable than gold. " Announcement Committee. Harriet has made many friends in E. H. S. because of her ready smile and friendly disposition. Among her many good characteristics perhaps the outstanding one is her unfailing good nature, and because of this genialit.v, we all hate to see Harriet leave us. She is always ready for fun, yet never forgets the scholastic side of school, toward which she is steadily striving. Good ' ishes to you.

" Feck " has long " been noted for his ability as a banjo player, being " one of the best around this neck of the woods. We are sure " Peck " will do big " things at Illinois next fall.

IIA; Treasurer Rah Rah Girls, ' 25: Junior Senior Prom Committee, ' 25; Annual Staff. Alice is one of the smallest .members of our class but she has the personality and pep to make us all love her. " Red " is noted for three things: her giggling " , her ability to do whatever she undertakes, her great popularity. She has done much toward making " the class of ' 2G the best ever, and we all wish her as much success in the future as she has had in E. H. S.

Blynn has been a very popular fellow in the Class of ' 26, being one of the leaders in everything that happened. Ht was at the bot- tom of practically every prank that was played, and suffered to a certain extent for a few that were uncovered. AVhile Blynn was a lover of fun, he did not let this interfere with his dates with Lucille — no, never! He is the type of a fellow that you are always glad to have for a friend, and one of the first faces that will be recalled to mind in the future will be that of Blynn Lauby. DOROTHY RUSSELL— " Pokie Dot " " By the work one knows the worker. " Chairman King and Pin Committee; Social Committee, IIB; Chairman Flower and Color Committee; Band, ' 24, ' 25; Dramatics Club, ' 25; Rah Rah Club. Did you ever see Dot when she was not in a hurry? You could not because she has been one of the busiest members of our class. During her four years Dot has made many friends because of her cheerful and pleasing attitude about the halls. We could always plan on her to be at all of the parties, and to help us enjoy them. She was an ever faithful member to all school activities of E. H. S. Dot says she wishes to becoine a secretary in Y. AY. C. A. work. If her ability of friendliness, good cheer and untiring " energy will help. Dot may be assured a place. We know she. will always do her best, espe- cially in Indiana next year. Good luck. Dot. EVERETT WEYBRIGHT " To do easily what is difficult for others is a mark of talent. " Football, ' 24.

Ev is a modest chap and would never tell you that he was our main stand-by on the football and basketball teams, and that he is an excellent student — getting E ' s from sonie of these teachers who seeni perfectly impossible to everyone else. Ev has been one of the most popular fellows in the class and has built up a record for good sportsmanship that will stand for years to co.me. The college that gets him not only gt-ls an excellent athlete aiid student but a mighty nice fellow. Thirty-six f nnattt 192H AnttMl EUGENE HUGHES— " Sheeny " " Would there were more like him.

He has not only been one of our athletic stars, but has also taken a very active part in the social activities of the school, and has been an excellent student. By his friendliness, wit. ability and enthusiasm, Eugene has won the admiration of the entire school. We aJl join in predicting for him a future with lots of success and happiness. ELAINE KIME " Modesty — it is the witness still of excellency. " Elaine is so quiet and sinct-ru at ht -r work that she puts some of us to shame. AVhen there is studying to be done that is Elaine ' s first duty, her name appearing regularly in the Honor Roll. However, she was always seen entering in the fun at our class parties. She is ever modest, being true to those she has learnd to trust. ' e wish there were more Elkhart students with her spirit. HOWARD JOHNSON— " Howie " " In athletic sports he does excell And since the mark he hits so well His aim in life — ah, who can tell? " Football. ' 24. ' 25. Step up and see our plucky little quarter-back. Our team would not have been the true E. H. S. line-up without " Howie. " He al- ways plays the game well, not only on the football field but in the class room. too. He makes friends easily, is pleasant to be around and is always in the fun. " Howie " is steady and dependable at any task, therefore, he has been valuable in our halls for four years. A gt-ntleman at all times, we are proud that he wears an " E " . MARGUERITE MARKEL " The hand that hath made you fair, hath made you good. " Marguerite is a girl who .an ivt- good ruunsel and sjieak com- fort to all who need it. These qualities with ambition, abilitv and conscientiousness are going to take Marguerite a long way. In school she attended class meetings and parties very faithfully. The activi- ties of E. H. S. could count on her for support and interest. She tilans to attend DePauw University to study law. We think this a delightful goal for such a girl. We expect to hear more of you. Marguerite.

' 23, 24; Junior Class Play; Band and Orchestra. It takes a mighty man to blow a flute. Art was an artist at it. He proved himself quite a matinee idol when he gained much recog- nition by his acting in " Come Out of the Kitchen. " He was one of the few who really could dance the Charleston and last but not least he was a real fellow and supported the class to the limit. We hope you make good at Purdue, Art.

We are proud to call Margaret a g raduate of the class of ' 26. because she is a conscientious student, a factor in every student ' s enterprise, and a girl of sterling character. She is going to DePauw next year, and after graduating from there she hopes to become a private secretary. With these attributes and ambitions she will no doubt achieve great things. HARRY MITCHELL— " Curly " " Great hopes make great men. " Harry was one of those fellows who always seem to be silent but are always cheerful. Cheerfulness goes a long ways nowadays in helping a person reach the highest point in life — success. Harry has an ambition to become a writer. Good luck, Harry, we are sure you will prove a success. BESSIE BUTRICK " She has many nameless virtues. " Bessie has stood the trials of school and has come out with great success. She is the kind of a girl who considers tlie rights of her friends first and then those of herself, and has. by this kindness, won a place in the hearts of all who know her. Bessie has not been seen at many of our class parties but we are sure that with her pleasant smile and friendly attitude to all, she is bound on the road to success. May the future bring her every happiness. JOE NOLAN— " Joe " " I strive for the highest goal, success. " Interclass Basketball. In some cases humor and school work don ' t mix. Joe ' s case proved an exception to this, because he was a good student and still very humorous. It ' s too bad Joe didn ' t take up dramatics in school, for we are sure he would have made an excellent actor. Maybe the stage will claim him yet. Cleverness helps a person get through many tight places. That was one characteristic which made Joe so well known and so well liked. We know that you will surely reach the point you strive for, Joe. BEATRICE NOFFSINGER " A heart full of gladness will banish sadness and strife, So look for the sunny side of life. " Beatrice has enjoyed her stay with us until graduation because she has always been interested in E. H. S. At athletic games we could count on her to give loyal support to the team. A sunny speech has ever been hers to help her through the four years. If Beatrice had made herself known to more of us we would have enjoyed it very much. But then she was always busy about something so we can not blame her for working. May the very bes t of luck follow with you always.

Margery has been one or the most popular members of our class. Her true worth and the esteem in which she is held by her class may be judged by her accomplishments and offices. Her managing- ability and originality have been invaluable to her class and school. While social chairman her novel ideas and initiative have given us .many unique and interesting parties. Marg has always been willing to help in anything worth while. Marg expects to go to Lasell in Boston next fall. We are certain they will be as proud of her there as we are in E. H. S.

" Bill " is our Football and Track star and our class is surely proud of him. There is no need to remark about his athletic ability, as everyone knows his career on the Gridiron. Since " Bill " has been in the class he has attended almost every class .meeting and party. We did not heap class duties upon him as we felt that he had enough work to do outside. " Bill " is going to Purdue to become a coach in years to come. We, the 1926 class, wish liim the liest of luck. MABLE SCHULTZ— " Irish " " It is tranquil people who accomplish much. " Secretary. IB. A more faithful member is hard to find. She has a record that few othfrs have succeeded in making, that is — she has paid her class dues all four years which is remarkable. Mable and the " gang " attended the class parties, whenever it was possible, and always joined in with the real class spirit. Wf know she cannot help but be a very successful private secretary " . RAYMOND MARKWALDER— " Ray " " I ' m running over with ambition. " Football. ' 25. Ray.mond was another one nf our very industrious students. He was nearly always studying l)ut in between he found time to go out for football and other activities. When there was anything to be done. Ray was always ready to lend a helping ha nd. He plans on taking up electrical engint-ering at Purdue. Big things are in store for Ray. EMMALINE SHIRK " Quiet her voice, too her eyes, And sweet her ways of laughter and grace. " Emmaline has been with us for four interesting ' ears. She stud- ied hard, but it was in the sewing department she did excellent work. With a keen interest always for her work, Emmaline will have pos- session of much of the valuable training that E. H. S. offered. When she sat to a task, she worked until it was finished. We can only wish there were more with that spirit. Whatever you choose to do, we are wishing you the most success possible. Thirty- nine. f nnattt X32B Mnml JOHN NEWMAN— " Andy " " My friend is my radio. " Here is a classmate who stars at radio. He has had the fever for years and is still at it.

We know you cannot help but have success in life, John. BERTHA ZIPSER— " Bert " " Although she keeps silent, her silence is more expressive than words. " Bert never made a great deal of racket in our halls but her keen pair of eyes were ever busy. She was one of our hard-working Commercial students. She had to work hard so she would be able to be a capable bookkeeper in a big office. That is what Bert told us she was going to do. We are certain she will succeed. JAMES C.

" Jim " is the possessor of that lucky trait, leadership! Through his ability and hard work the class has risen to its greatest height. When there was hard work to do " Jim " did more than his share and completed it in record time. His novel ideas always helped to put over our class parties, and his fine business head helped to make them financially possible. One year of school was spent in Florida, where he also took a very active part in the school life. We realize that the college that gets him will surely speak highly of E. H. S. MARION M. SWARTZ— " Pete " " Woman is always a changeable and capricious thing. " Flower find Color Committee. II A. To this little fair-haired maiden goes our very best wishes. Pete was always quiet in the halls and class rooms. Those eyes will not be so quiet as they have seemed in E. H. S. She was an ever-present member at all our athletic contests, and was always anxious as to their outcome. She wishes to become a private secretary. We know she will prove very valuable in some office. May your wishes come true, Pete. DONALD RUSSELL— " Don " " Sensibility it the power of man. " Annual Staff: Pennant Staff, ' 2o. Behold our business man!

M e ' re betting on you, " Howdie. " VESTA WALKER— " Peggy " " Gentle is she and of good intent. " " P ggy " knows her business and goes about it in her own quiet w ay.

He made himself a name in high school athletics by becoming important as a relay and dash man on the track squad. In class events and activities he never plaj ' ed any special part but still his loyalty was not lacking. Chet was one of those quiet sort of fel- lows but of the kind that succeed.

He is usually seen walkins: around the halls with his girl, and his only ambition, he says, is to marry. FLOYD LOTT " Plunge until you make your goal. " Football. ' 24. 2u. Floyd is a product of the Roosevelt District. During the two years that he has been with us he has attended our class meetings and functions regularly.

PAULINE OSBORNE " Doing your best is doing all. " Pauline has done her l est in rlass work, meetings and social functions and the result is that she has accomplished many things during her four years with the class of ' 26. If Pauline had devoted znost of her time to our class activities we are sure she would have become a leader. Because of her ability to finish a task that is given her we are sure that she will succeed in whatever she undertakes. The class wishes her the best of luck in the following years. LOUIS SHIRLEY— " Lewie " " Success comes only through hard work. " Service Committt-c.

Be- cause of his never-failing desire to work we are sure he is destined to succeed in whatever he undertakes. We give him our best wishes for the future. GUY LONG " When trouble comes along, just smile. " Guy always has a ready smile for everyone. This characteristic has made many friends for him in our class during his short stay with us.

JOHN WILLIAMS— " Jiggs " " ' Tis said on some unknown subject, he is authority of good repute. " Jiggs is a little man, but then o was Xapoleon. During his school career he was a very valuable quarter-back for the Blue Avalanche during its championship year. In basketball he did equally as well. The friendliness of Jiggs won for him many friends in our halls as games on the gridiron. A bright or clever saying was Jiggs ' sure reply to most of our questions.

" Freda ' s pleasing: personality, ready smile, and willingness make her the kind of a girl whom we all like to know and know weW — • that ' s why her circle of friendships is so large.

Bill ' s ambition is to be National Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., and as he has been one of the biggest factors in the Fighting Forty and Hi-Y, we are sure that he will succeed. Much of the success of the Fighting Forty and Hi-Y can be attributed to Bill ' s energetic devotions. Whatever he begins he finishes. Here ' s success to you Bill! GWENDOLYN ALBR I GHT— " Billy " " Oh, how she can dance! " Billy has hem with us but a sliort time but we have come to admire her very mucli. She says her hobby is swimming and her ambition is to become a second Pavlova. If her work continues we are sure that her ambition will be realized. Gwendolyn left us a short time ago but she couldn ' t stay away and so came back to graduate witl. the class. " We can only hope that her feet will continue to dam c. and that tht-y will never be slowed by sorrow. GERALD WARNER " Be ready for the opportunity when It comes. " We ' ve often wondered if Gerald is as quiet as he appears — maybe he is, maybe not! Anyway, he always seems to be very busy, al- ways having something to do and a keen intention of accomplishing it. Gerald has always attended all class and school activities, enter- ing into our work as well as our play. Whatever he chooses to be. We know he will make his mark. Forty-four f j nnmtt la B Annual January Class History Only yesterday we were Freshmen, today we are Seniors, tomorrow we will join the Alumni. It was only yesterday that we were making out our programs in E. H. S. for the first time. How anxious we were for our first class meeting! We waited patiently — or impa- tiently — through the whole first semester, and waited in vain, for we had no class meeting. Our patience, or impatience, was rewarded on September 28, 1922. It was on this day that we held our first class meeting. We elected the following as our class officers for the semester: Marjorie Mathias, president; Karl KoUar, vice-president; James Olson, secre- tary; Robert Paulson, treasurer; and Harold Weiler, social chairman. Miss Wineland was chosen class sponsor. During this semester the IID ' s became a well organized class, eager to take up their work in E. H. S. On Friday, October 27, we Freshmen of yesterday had our first class party. Our spon- sor. Miss Wineland, was assisted in chaperoning the party by Miss Stanton, Miss Burns, and Mr. and Mrs. Boone who saw that all his football men went home from the party at an early hour. For the IC semester Marjorie Mathias was re-elected president; James Olson, vice- president; Louis Shelley, secretary; Robert Paulson, treasurer, and Karl KoUar, social chair- man. May 15th marked the date for the first skating party of our class, at Blosser ' s Park. The IC and IIC classes turned out ninety strong for the " weenie " roast and skating party. Despite a number of tumbles we all had such a good time that it was decided to make the skating partv an annual event. We all secretly hoped that next vear there would be fewer " spills " . The election for IIC class oflicers resulted as follows: Robert Paulson, president; Ver- non Martin, vice-president; Eugene Hughes, secretary; William North, treasurer; Russell Rosentreter, social chairman. Upon the resignation of Miss ' ineland, Mr. Osbun was se- lected class sponsor. An unusual Hallowe ' en party was held in the Domestic Science rooms on October 20. 1923. The unraveling of a mystery ball proved the most entertaining of all the games. Hallowe ' en refreshments were served by the social committee. A Chri ' stmas party was held December 14, in the Domestic Science rooms. A large Christmas tree added to the Christmas atmosphere. Some of our classmates added to our enjoyment by telling Christmas stories. The officers selected to guide us through our IB semester were: Robert Paulson, presi- dent; Vernon Martin, vice-president; William Xorth, treasurer; Harold Weiler. social chairman. Our class joined the IIB class in the annual skating party at Blosser ' s Park. W e all had a good time, even better than last year, since fewer of us fell down. The IIB class officers were: Glad3 ' s Russell, president; La Verne Disney, vice-presi- dent; Mable Schultz. secretary; Bob Paulson, treasurer; Marjorie Mathias, chairman of the social committee. On October 12, 1924. we had a candy sale in the corridors. We showed our eagerness to work for our class as we did when we were IID ' s, and the sale was a success. The spring skating party was such a success that we decided to have one on Oct. 18th. After scurrying around trying to find cars enough to take us to Blosser ' s Park, we left the school about five o ' clock. Everyone reported " A good time. " Ofiicers for the lA team were elected as follows : Robert Helfrick, president ; Anna Louise Culp, vice-president; Robert Paulson, secretary; Margaret Luke, treasurer; Marie Ackley, social chairman. It was decided to ha -e a class partv with the June, 1926, class. This party was held at Forty-five f nnant i b Annual the Scout camp at Eagle Lake. We played games ' hile we were waiting for the crowd to gather and, incidentally, waiting for the social committee to arrive with the " eats " . After supper we gathered around the camp fire to enjoy stunts and games. (jur last party with the June, 1926. class occurred May 12, at Blosser ' s Park. As usual, all who went had a good time. This was the last skating party that both classes would par- ticipate in as organized classes of E. H. S. May 22 ' as the date of the 1925 Junior-Senior Prom. Dinner was served at the Chris- tiana Tavern and the remainder of the evening was devoted to dancing. The music was furnished b y the Bell Hops of PI}-moiith. E ' eryone enjoyed the evening and acclaimed it a complete success. James Olson was chosen as president to help us on our way to tomorrow, wlien we ' ll he Alumni. Howard Roderick was elected vice-president; Margaret Luke, secretary; Bob Paulson, treasurer; and Marjorie Alathias, social chairman. These officers gave us a most successful and enio3 ' able semester with which to end our high school career. The honor of being the first class to sell candy and " hot dogs " in the booth erected at Rice Athletic Field was ours. CJur efforts met with financial success. There were two parties with the lA ' s; a skating party at Blosser ' s Park and a Hard- Times party in the gym. At the Hard-Times party we dignified Seniors left our dignit} ' at home with our good clothes. We were divided into three groups, Rags, Tatters and Patches, for contests. The ])arty as voted the success of the semester. On December 17th the January and June classes of 1926 held a Senior Ban(|iiet. The bancjuet was served in the Domestic Science rooms. James Olson, president of the January class, acted as toastmaster. Toasts were given by Kenneth Fields, Inez Levin and Stanley Raymer, with responses by Robert Paulson, Miss Sherrick, Miss Burns, and Mr. Holdeman. After the bancjuet the following program was given in the auditorium : Saxophone solo by Marjorie Brannan ; piano solo, Harriet Ferris; puppet play, Dramatic Department; read- ing, Ruth Grootveld ; and inlin solo. Madonna Farren. The remainder of the evening was devoted to dancing. The Junior-Senior Prom was held at Christiana Tavern just a few weeks before we were graduated. The Prom was one of the most successful in the history of E. H. S. Now we say yesterday I was an E. H. S. student and today I am an E. H. S. Alumnus. January Class Prophecij " Station P LAB broadcasting from the roof garden of the new Hotel Jones at Elkhart. Indiana. " As I heard the name " Elkhart " announced, I said to Marie, whn was listening in with me, " Why, I didn ' t know there was a station at Elkhart. Just think it ' s fifteen years since we graduated from old Elkhart High. That must be our old " Smiles ' Jones ' new hotel that e heard about. Then we sat up to hear the announcer say : " The next selection on this evening ' s program will be .Art John- son ' s latest song hit entitled " The Charleston Don ' t Appeal To ' Me Now, " played by Peck Kollar ' s Jazzites. Harold Firestone, KoUar ' s novelt • drummer, will sing the words to this appealing ballad. " After listening to this, Marie and I decided to call some of our old friends who were now living at Coral (jables, to come over and enjoy ' ith us the news of our old home town and our former classmates. Jim Olson, our successful Florida realtor. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Helfrick, who were merely vacationing at Coral Gables, Marian Swartz, Bill Stemm and Helen Cutler, all came over to join us. The last, but not the least, to join us was our old football man, Howdy Roderick who now owns a large theatre. W e remem- bered how said Howdy always used to like to sit in the front row at the Lerner and watch the chorus girls. Now he stands behind the stage and has a little company all his own. Forty-six pennant ig s Annual We all sat do n aruuncl our new Sui)er-hyclroneulralic set, which, by the way, is the result of Joe Foy ' s latest tinkering; in the radio laboratory, and is sold with niueh success I)}- the Harold Wei ' ler Radio Shoppe, and listened in again to Station .BLAl!. " Xext on this evening ' s program will be this afternoon ' s football scores. The Elkhart Bearcats defeated the South Bend Whirlwinds 27-0 -with Roland Crofoot starring for Elkhart ' s professional team. " " Oh, yes, " Jim said, " I remember reading in the paper that l lk- hart had some fine professional football players. Sheenie Hughes is coaching them and they are having a very successful season. He has John Posey, Billie Miller and Howard Johnson in his backfield. so we ' r iS i oL know they ' re good. ' ell, anyway they get good pulslicity as old Bob Paulson is our sport editor. We also ha e another newspaper man developed from our old class as I hear that Donald Russell is advertising manager of the Chicago Tribune now. " I am glad you folks came over, " Marie said, " as I lo ■e to hear of our January class of ' 26. We were small but might} " , weren ' t we? And it has been ages since I heard ( )f an} " of them, the " ha e been prett} " successful on the whole. " " Yes, " said Boli, " and among some of those that found success outside of dear Elkhart is Dorothy Russell. Doroth} " is Secretar - of the A " . W. C. A. at San Francisco, Calif., and Bob Kilmer is at the head of Elkhart ' s big V. M. I knew that all those fine speeches we heard during our Senior year ould put the " V " sjiirii into someone. . nd Margaret Luke is President of the National League of ' on " ien Witers. She told me that there were some speeches broadcasted tonight l.iy members of her League. " Just then Station BLAB announced that Miss Alarguerite Markel would now give an address concerning the coming elections, wherein she is running for representative to the House from Indiana against Miss Elaine Kime. ' e listened to them both but we were entirely impartial as they were both popular memliers of our dear old class. " What ha " e you heard of others of our friends? " Bill Stenim asked. " We had some good athletes. " " L )idn ' t you know that Floyd and Chester Sparr had gone to the ( )lympic games this spring? They are the new Xurmis and Joie Rays, 1 guess. Also we have another member of our class in Europe. Annalouise Culp married an English nobleman and is living in Lon- don. Her friend Cecille Bradley is her husband ' s private secretary " . I heard that both girls like England ' . We certainly turned fiut some good office girls. Grace xArtle} " is now secre- tary to Arthur Pieurle who is a Professor in the Indiana Agricultural College. " " The only two l:)oys in the class whom I thought chose exceptional careers were La erne Disney and Edward Barwick. La erne is a minister and Ed is now " superintendent of a Burns Detective Agency office in Chicago. Remember the da " he almost captured Durkin? Vell, I hope he does as well now as he thought he did then. " We sat up very late that night listening in on the radio and talking about our old class- mates. We found that that old rascal Joe Xolan was with .Vrthur ' are in a new comedy on Broadway, written b}- the celebrated playwright, Ray Mark v-alder. Inez Shreiner is happily married as we all expected, and is living somewhere in Illi- nois. " I am certainly " ery glad that ' ou i)eople came over, " I said, as we finished talking. " I hope you will come again and we will tune in on Elkhart and keep in l etter touch with our former classmates. Marie and I shall be here another month, then school will open and we must get back to Illinois, and to our classes. You know we are both ' school maams ' now " . " Just then we turned to hear a oice saying, " Station BL-VB. Elkhart, Indiana, signing ofif at 1 :00 A.M. This station w " ill broadcast a similar program tiimorrow evening at, the same time. " And we knew " that we w " ould have a chance to hear from Elkhart again. Forty-seven p nnmtt ihsb Annual Jdnuary Class IPill We, the January Class i)f 1926, being of sound mind and body, realizing that the time of our departure from this institution is fast approaching, do herewith ofTer this, our first, last, and only will and testament. To the faculty we becjueath the fond memory of the loving children just released from their tutelage. To the Juniors we will and bequeath our dignified mien and our quiet attention at class meetings, also our front seats at Assembly. I Iay they cherish this bequest. To the Sophomores we leave the memory of our good times during our stay under this hospitable roof which they have to look forward to. Everett Weybright also leaves them his name that they may bring joy to the faculty. To the Freshmen we will and bequeath the love and tenderness that the teachers have bestowed on us this past year and the profit of our combined wisdom and experiences. To one Jim Neale, Edna Enders, Esther Dunmire. and Vesta Walker leave their quiet manners in hope that they will be used to increase his shyness. To Raymond vSykes, Harold Firestone wills his drums to further that boy ' s capacity for noise-making. To the " Banes Twins " Bill North leaves his height, to he divided equally. To underclassmen Eugene Hughes leaves his surplus of good nature (we know there will be more than enough to go around) and to the same ones Alice La Brie leaves her power to start an argument for use — on Monday mornings only! To all future managers, class presidents, etc., is bequeathed ] Iarjorie Alathias ' " manag- ing ability. ' ' Marie Ackley and Bertha Zipser having everj-thing from A to Z, will their choice ses- sion seats to those desiring them. Mary Christophel and Marguerite Markel leave their seriousness to Charlie Schutt ; Charlie is in need of more. To Phyllis Gampher is bequeathed Miles Jones ' studious habits that she may win more of the coveted " E ' s. " To Lillian Oliver, Dot Russell leaves her horn. Good care must be taken of this legacy. To Mr. Jones is left the memory of the dear children in his first and third hour Civics classes. May they ever be the example ! Inez Shreiner leaves her supply of refreshments ' in said class to those needing food for thought. To Mary WinterhoiT, James Olson bequeaths his ability to conduct a class meeting (Mary will have better success next year with this added possession), and to future Annual staffs his executive ability and good-will. To all those living on the South Side is willed the use of the Martin and Aliller taxi — prompt service guaranteed — if lost, notify the owners. To Edson Fish, Art Johnson bequeaths his " Charleston Steps " that this lad may suc- ceed in his terpsichorean endeavors. To Gordon Johnson is bequeathed John Posey ' s eye for basket-shooting. With this plus what Gordy has E. H. S. will have an " Ail-American. " To Elmer Albaugh, ' esta Walker wills her " energy and perseverance. To Margaret HeTfrick, Martha Berry wills her permanent wave for use for the next six weeks — after that Margaret will auction it; the high est bidder receiving the prize. We hope the recipient will not suflfer from headaches caused by the waves rising and falling. To future Class Committees we will the willingness of Gladys Archer and Irene Cassel- man. Having this made our bequeaths we hope that any remaining ones will be divided equal- ly among the beneficiaries. Therefore, we do hereby set our hand and seal in the year of our Lord — nineteen hun- dred and twenty-six and appoint our faithful sponsor, Miss Bernita Burns, executrix of this, our last will and testament.

As in everything else, " Toad " proved himself to be rig:ht there when it came to football. He knows that all work and no play make Jack a dull boy and he also knew the other side of the story. Walter intends to warm the Purdue gridiron and we feel certain that he will make things real hot. EDITH L. CAMPBELL— " DeDe " " Rich in common sense. " Edith ' s holiby is driving " a Studebaker, which we know that she does with skill and ease. While she is a quiet girl, she isn ' t afraid of any traffic officer that ever gave a signal. Her ambition is to be a secretary and next year will find her working in some office. Good luck to you.

" Ted has always been a faithful and dependable member of our class, and has always been right there whenever there was anything doing. He says his ambition is to be a real estate man, and we have been thinking that it he can make deals as fast as lie can run and carry the ball in a game, that Xub will be on easy street before very many years. Of course Xub intends to join Marjorie at Michigan next year. We wish j ' ou the best of luck, Tedl W. C. A. HARRIET E. STAUDT— " Speck " " I ' m not afraid to state my views.

TRAUTMAN " We are not all able to accomplish the same things. " Track — Letter. ' 25. George says he likes " Track " ; he has made one letter and Is out for another one. Weill — " Persistence always wins. " George intends to go away to school as soon, as possible and judging fro,m his ambi- tion to be a mechanical and electrical engineer, and the fact that George is a peach of a kid. we know he ' ll succeed.

" Gabe is one of the sailors of our crew whom we seldom see, but we know that his heart is with us. He says his hobby is " Keeping- still, " but we are sure that he has other, more interesting ones. Well, we have our suspicions! Those who know Gabe say that he has a very pleasing personality. Just the same, we wish you luck. JUANITA JENKINS " A good disposition is more valuable than gold. ' ' Juanita, whom we all love, is ever modest, yet full of pep. She is true l)lue and stands for the highest ideals. Juanita intends to enter business college in the summer and later be someone ' s private secre- tary. We all know that her future will be a wonderful success, bringing her happiness and many friends. Sixty-two fwMttt 192B Annual JOHN RHODES— " Dusty " " What a boy is depends upon what he does when he has nothing to do. " When we think " Dusty " we think " Dun " , for they aiv usually found together. Many a time the session room would have been dull if it hadn ' t been for " Dusty " and his continuous, shall we say, " talk- ing " or making " unnecessary noise? John says he likes wrestling and hunting:. Hunting what? John will be at Purdue next year. MARGIE E. STEMM— " Shorty " " It IS good to be merry. " Dramatics Club; " ilahttr Will ot .Stratiurd. While " Shorty " may not always be seen, nevertheless, she can usually be heard arguing. Cracking jokes or doing almost anything that pertains to fun. ilargie is another one of the niany whose aim in life is bound to be successful at any thing she attempts, be it " teach- ing " or " learning. " X. EDGAR HARTMAN " Look before you leap. " Edgar is another one of our worthy class-mates. He was not often seen at class parties. l:iut we like him very much, and only wish that he would have attended our parties, for he doesn ' t know what fun he missed. Edgar loves to play baseball and has the desire to be a tea her some day. Good luck. Edgar. PURDEN THOMPSON " Formed by thy converse happily to steer From grave to gay, from lively to severe. Correct with spirit, eloquent with ease. Intent to reason, or polite to please. " When Ve think of I ' unlen we most iii ' arial ' l ' think of Daisj ' , for they are nearly always seen together. Purden see.ms to be a firm believer in having " fun from the looks of all the good times she has and helps .many others to have. She is one of our peppiest girls and likes everybody and everything " . We wish Purden much success and are confident she will make herself valuable in whatever pursuit she engag:es. JEANETTE JON AS— " Jeanny " " Quiet, but full of wholsome fun. " Jeanette is usually seen talking witli Elaine or Gladus. She has always been a faithful member and enjoys having a good time. Jean- ny says that her ambition is to be a musician; and next year she is going to Michigan to work for that end. Knowing her to be a studious and anibitious girl, we know she will attain her ambition and be a success.

Rah Rah Girls; Mathematics Club; " Master Will of Stratford " ; A ice- President. ' 26. Thinking of Dramatics and Oratorical ability, " vve think of Ruth, for she has both. She won the Oratorical Contest twice in succession. Forgetting ' her exceptional ability in this, Ruth has been very popular and has attended all the parties, dances and games. When we asked Ruth her hobby, she replied saying. " Oh, ridin ' the rough in the Buick and seein ' folks. " This is all true for rarely do we see Ruth without the Buick. Ruth is going to Purdue next year and study Home Economics. We can hardly imagine her cooking, for she has far too much pep for that, but here ' s to you, Ruth. GEORGE GRUBER— " Bud " " The mould of a man ' s fortune is in his own hands. " Football, ' 23. ' 24. ' 25. You all know George, for he has been with our class since the time he entered E. H. S. as a lowly Freshman. George was a loyal member of our class when it came ta class meetings but not so good about going to class parties. His ambition is to be a big success. " We hope that you will be, George. DOROTHY HELENE H ITESM AN— " Dot " " If music be the food of love, play on. " Glee Club; Operetta: Orchestra. Dot is well known by everj ' one because of her talent as a pianist. We also learned that she had a great deal of vocal talent when she took the lead in the operetta. Her snappy eyes and welcome smile greet her many friends everywhere. She intends to be a primary teacher in the days to co.me, and we know that because of her win- ning ways she is bound to succeed. THOMAS F. COLLINS— " Tom " " Oh! Such Hair! " Commercial Club President, ' 2ti. Tom is another one of our four-year men. and has always been on deck. He nearly always attended our class parties and did his share in making them a success. He says his hobby is swimming — but we couldn ' t very well figure out how he could go all winter with- out a hobby; and so Tom said " Getting my trial balance. " Sounds pretty much as though Tom ' s ambition to be an accountant will be realized. And we feel sure that it will. Next year we will probably find this member of our class working — and then 1927 — college. Good luck to you, Tom. RUTH MARGUERITE HOSTETTLER " As happy as the day is long. " Here is a dependable girl, happy, willing and always on hand! Ruth always attends our class parties and is willing to lend a helping hand whenever there is any work to be done. Some day she intends to study music in Chicago, but next year she says that we will find her laboring as a stenographer, and as we have often heard of her fxceutional ability as a typist, we know that she will make good. Sixty-four f wnattt 1H2B Annual HARVEY GREENLEAF— " Harv " " A little backward about coming forward. " Harvey has always been a little ;-hy about mingling with people, but when it comes to music he can play in six different languages. Harvey will probably g-o to the University of Chicagro. but we don ' t know whether we can trust him alone in the big city. Those who know Harvey say that he is a fine fellow, and we agree with them. JOYCE PIPPENGER— " Joy " " Those graceful acts, those thousand decencies that daily flow from all her words and actions. " Quiet and shy — these are Joyce ' s main characteristics but those who know ht-r intimately tell us she is a most jovial friend. Joyce nearly always attended our class parties until her Junior year when suddenly she was absent from them. Joyce, we are led to believe the worst on account of this strange action. Joyce has left us in doubt concerning her ambition, but whatever she undertakes we know she will succeed. FRED A. HOLTZ— " Fritz " " He who toots his own horn is a success. " Band, " 22 to ' 26; Orchestra. " 22 to ' 26; Glee Club. " 24 to ' 25; Chorus. ' 23 to ' 25; Social Committee, ' 23; Operetta, ' 25; Service Committee. ' 22. Fritz is our musician. We have depended on him a great deal when it comes to band, orchestra and playing for class parties: and Fritz has always been Johnny on the spot. He says his main hobby is to play his cornet (or we would say " any kind of a horn " ), but from what we see. it looks as though being with Marie was his chief hobby. Well, anyway, we admire your taste. Fritz. Next year Fritz says we may expect to find him at Notre Dame where he will con- tinue his music. HELEN RICHEY " One of those girls who is a friend to all. " Helen is one of our loyal E. H. S. fans who follows all the games. Sports of any kind give Helen a big thrill. But for an indoor sport she likes reading. She will spend several years at college taking a general course and then she intends to study music. DOROTHY MERKLING— " Dot " " She has many nameless virtues. " One of the few lucky ones with her curly blond hair! We have found that she simply adores dramaiics. and so. if you promise not to t ll. we have learned that she and her sister are writing an opera which will be given at the Lerner in the near future. And incidentally she likes to dance and is quite proficient in that art. We are sure that Dot has a bright future in store for her. and we all wish her the best of luck. Sixty-five P nnmtt la B Annual MARVA LONG— " IVIarv " " I ' d rather wear out than rust out. " Juno Write-ups; Pfunant Annual; Rah Rah Girls; Exchange Editnr Pennant Weekly. L ; Joke Editor. IIA. This is the girl who wants to be the first woman president of the United States. I say Horatio, get out the pen and let me vote a straight ticket. Dancing and peppy times make Marva giggle with joy. However, she can combine business with pleasure for she has proven herself an excellent student and worker. She hates raisins, liut how about raisin ' cain? — Q. E. D. JOHN ROY MILLER— " Jinks " " A good disposition is better than gold. " Treasurer of " ' lass IIB; Commen -ial Club. Johnny is quiet, but always a dutiful member of our class. His hobby is going to dances, and we can verify that staten-,ent because we happen to know that the fairer sex just love Johnny ' s dancing. He is seen quite a bit with his brother " ' BiU ' " of wham we have heard he is is quite fond. Next year he expects to go to Chicag;) U. and he hopes in the future to be a public accountant. Knowing Johnny as we do, wi are sure that with his good quaUties he will be a success at college next year, and an excellent accountant. ISABELLE LOSHBAUGH— " Loshy " " The girl with the golden hair, as wise as she is fair. Isabelle is one of the bright .members of our class, and has done us credit since her entrance into E. H. S. She is usually seen driving around in the big Elcar. and she tells us that to drive is her delight. She intends to be a kindergarten teacher and is planning to attend school next fall to prepare herself for that work. We wish you suc- cess. Isabelle in whatever you may undertake to do. CHARLES N EH ER— " Charlie " " It is tranquil people that accomplish much. " Dramatics Club; " Master Will of Stratford " ; Fighting Forty; IID Service Committee. Charlie is an ambitious boy. He intends to sojourn at North- western University for several years and then he will co,me forth into the limelight as a business manager. Charlie sa ' s his hobby is going to games but we believe the games he attends are in a town not far south. DOROTHY LORD — " Dot " Some think the world is made for fun and frolic, and so do 1. " I-Jand: Orchestra; Dramatics Club; " " Master Will of Stratford " ; Annual Staff. Page the Smith Brothers, Adolph, for " Dot " announces that her liobby is cough drops and her ambition, more cough drops. They seem to serve a lubrication to her vocal organs, for does she talk? t ' h. well, we have her in spite of her failings and there must be someone to niLike noise. Dot is brimming over with pep and keeps (he crowd awake. Keep it up, Dorothy, laughter is better than tears.

Pep and the ability to g:et things done, combined with genuine sincerity make Thelma a fine and lovable girl. She is right there to help when help is needed. Her chief ambition is to dance and to run around with the girls. Next year, letters for TheLma may be addressed to St. !Mary " s. We ' re for you, " Shortie. " (B:c ' STANLEY MILLER— " Stan " " We acquire the strength we overcome. " Stanley is niie ni ' the mtnibers of uur class who doesn ' t say much. He has the peculiar habit of " star-gazing " . Quite romatic. isn ' t he? " Stan " intends to study at Goshen college next year, and intends to be a teacher. We wish you success, Stanley. x ?. f HAZEL MARTIN— " Marty " " A prim and proper little lady. " HiTzel is out of our (iuit.-t niemijers. yet there is more behind that silence than one knows. Life Is full oi surprises, isn ' t it. Hazel? She is a whiz at working ' Geometry and we know that she will be equally as good when she becoines a bookkeeper and t " pist. Hazel will cause adding machine companies to go bankrupt and then we will have to go to night school to learn to count above ten. ERNEST GORDON MAY— " Gordy " " The less men talk the more they think. " Dramatics Club; " Jlaster Will of Stratford. " tJordon. we might say. has " stuck to the ship " all through the four years of sailing- and has been a good sailor working for the class in his own way. " Gordy ' s " future will be spent in doing a building contractor ' s worlt. HELEN LAPP " A companion who is cheerful is worth gold. " Helen ' s disposition and pleasant manner around school created for her a host of friends, but she is most generally seen with Clyde. She is one of our best typists, and is often seen in the typewriting room. She always has a pleasant .•--mile for everyone and apparently not a care in the world. She can well afford to smile though with the record she has made for herself in her scholastic efforts, constantly getting E " s.

As small as " Runt " is, he is never lost and has always man- aged to be in all activities. " Runt " is always around either teasing or " causing- a big commction. " He expects to be an athletic coach and intends to study either at Michigan or Indiana University. Tou have all heard the expression " small but mighty. " We feel that this applies to " Runt. " rh- RUTH YODER ' One in a million like her. " iluth is one of tlie hard working i-ommercial students of our class. ' e don ' t often see ht-r but Ruth probably is busy with other things. She is one of the very few who has not cut off her long locks — but of course one never can tell when that will happen. Being a Commercial student, Ruth ' s ambition probably is to be a secretary. We know she will make a good one. OTHO B. YODER— " Oats " " What would I do with size when I do so much without it. " Football Monogram, ' 25, ' 2t); Track Monogram, ' 24; Track Letter, ' 25, ' 26; Interclass Basketball, ' 26; Annual Staff. Otho says his hobby is athletics and from Otho ' s attempts we are sure it is true. In addition to these accomplishments Otho is an ex- ceptionally good student. Next year Otho goes to Purdue and will study to be an engineer. We wish you the utmost success. Otho. FRANCES E. PESTOW— " Fanny " " A loving heart; a dash of fun; a brilliant mind compose this one. " Frances is one of the sunny members of our class, for she is usually seen smiling. We don ' t see much of her at our class parties, yet we know she is a worthy member. Finances says her chief hobby is to read and her ambition is to be a teacher; her fondness for read- ing will come in quite handy then, especially when it comes to grad- ing papers. Perhaps not quite so interesting though. Anyhow we are sure that Frances will make a mighty good teacher and we wish you luck at Chicago Normal. VIOLET YOUNG— " Vi " " Always willing and ready to do. " Violette is one of our quiet members who seldom came to a class party. She spends a great deal of time studying because she wants lo be a successful bookkeeper. Violette likes to sing and dance and she is right there to help every one have a good time. Sixty-eight pennant 1320 Annual DOROTHY CLARK— " Dottie " " What ' d you say? " Riding in Ruth ' s Buick is Dottie ' s chief diversion and there is always a big argument over who ' ll sit in the front seat. By the out- come we would judge that " Dottie " always wins as she can usually be seen riding down Main street next to the pilot. " Dot " is going to businee.s college next year and in the future we have hopes of hear- ing of " Dottie " Clark. ERNEST BECHTEL— " Ernie " " I am not in the role of common men. " Ernie is the midget nf the cla s. Krnle has not been very active at our class parties but has always attended our class meetings. Ernie is going to be a great scientist (a second Prof. Frost). He says the only thing he lacks to make himself famous is six or seven inches of William North ' s height. DAISY E. COLE " With her ' twas natural to please. " Art Club : Commercial Club ; Motto Committee. Daisy and " Prunes " are always together around school and our class parties, and you could alwavs sec her at all the games with Catharine. Daisy says she loves popcorn and simply adores to travel. We might suggest a traveling salesman, but indications point strongly to a certain Purdue attraction. Aren ' t we right? ROBERT F. BATCHMAN— " Bob " " Silence is wisdom " — I am silent then. Bob is a staunch and steady supporier of his class. We would say that Bob will be a great engineer and we hope he will succeed as well as he has during his journey through school. Bob did not attend many of our class parties, but we believe the blame for tha circumstance may be attached to a Chevrolet and a nice young lady- JESSIE CUTLER— " Jess " " Greatness is not measured with a yardstick. " Jessie is one of these eonstrvative people in that her hobby and ambition are one and the same. To dance, to sing and to have a good time, are Jessie ' s ideas of a happy life and who can blame her? We ' ll say that she has good taste. In spite of such light and frivolous pa stimes. Jessie Mitends to be a school teacher and she will go to the University of Pennsylvania to get her " learning " . Sixty-nine f ttnant i92fi Annual GUY LAMOIN ULERY " What should a man do but be merry? " Fighting Forty. Guy could not be classified as a " ladies ' nian " or a " ballroom lizard " , but he has a way with the women. Guy is always at all of our parties and enters in all activities. And even then manages to get grades seemingly without any work, perhaps he has a way with the faculty. Guy ' s ambition is to be a ceitified public ac.ountant. PAULINE M. ROSE— " Polly " " Gaiety is the soul ' s health, sadness its problem. " Dramatics Club; " Masttr Will of Stratford. " Happy and peppy are " Polly ' s " main characteristics. The one thing she ' d rather do than anything else is to dance and to go to Goshen. " Polly " has hopes of life as a private secretary to someone really great. She is going to a secretarial school next year in Chicago. I What 3E E. MANGES — " Happy " for care! A fig for woe! I can ' t pay — why can ' t 1 owe? " George is our one member who never seems to worry over any- thing at any time. To hunt and to fisli seem to satisfy him and he lias never been known to suffer from " disease of the lieart. " but then we don ' t l now everything:. Happy is always seen on the football field before eacli game. No — he isn ' t one of the mighty football war- riors, still he wears a uniform. Curious? Well. " Happy " plays in the Band and gives his .support in that way. FORSEE MILLS— " Peggy " " One of wit, work, wisdom and a dash of wickedness. " " I wanna dance and I waniia .swim. " says Forsee. and she does both with the sliill nf a professional. She wants to be a private secre- tary and someone will be lucky for Forsee is very competent. When we become rich, will you work for us? Yes? We thank you. CLAIRE K. PARKHURST— " Skinney " " You were born for something great. " Track, ' 24, ' 2l , ' 26; Basketball. ' 26. Claire is one of the unassuming members of our class. He is not " socially inclined, " so that is the reason why we have never seen liini at any of our parties. " Skinney " says he loves athletics best of all. and we can believe that for he is one of our star pole vaulters. Claire intends to go to an industrial scliool next fall and take up printing. We all hiipe that you will be successful, Claire. Seventy f nnant i ae Annual MARJORIE BRANNAN— " Marj " " The prettiest little damsel. " Iiramaties Club; Band; An c ' lub; Rah Rah Girls. Marj ' .irie has many friends and has been an e ' er faithful member of our class. " Marj " has loads of pep and is always willing to use it.

" Marj " is going to enter Bush Con- servatory next fall. Here ' s to your success, Marjorie. ETHAMAR A. ALLEN— " Eth " " A daring athlete, fearless and bold, Admired by all, so we are told. " Football, " 22. ■2:S. ' 24. 2.:; Tra-k, ' 22, ' 2. " .. Speaking of Kthamar, vc tliink of football. " Kth " was one of the star players on our team. He was also a loj ' al supporter of our class. He says that some day he hopes to be a Doctor of Medicine, and ha " ing heard that Ethajiiar has great ability in science, we hope that he will be a great doctor in the future. He says his hobby is football and dances — quite a contrast? But it is rumored that he is equally as good on the dance floor as he is on the football field. Detroit U. may have Ethamar as one of its students next year. VEVAH BOYER— " Vev " " She multiplies words with knowledge. " ' evah has been a ciuiet but valuable member to our class. Slie was one of the few who paid her dues and came to the class meetings and parties. ' evah excells at cooking and sewing and she surely was a star in the Physics class. There is no doubt that Vevah has a very bright future before her. WILLIAM AMSDEN— " Bill " " I can ' t worry and be glad at the same time, so I am just going to be glad. " Football, ' 24, ' 25: Basketball, ' 2:.; Track, ' 23, ' 24, ' 2,5; Dramatics Club, ' 26. If you ever want an hour of just good ordinary joking just look up Bill and he will supply the necessary patter to fill the hour wi humor. Nevertheless Bill ia a member of our class whom we all will remember favorably. Bill has a horror of notebooks and final exams, but we mustn ' t forget his ability as an athlete. Above all his shrewd wit made him a great favorite among those with whom he associated. t)ur best wishes are with you in the future. Bill. EDNA W. BIDDLECOME — " Biddie " " To do easily what is hard for others is a mark of talent. " Edna has been with us only one year coming here from our old rival school, Warsaw. We have enjoyed having her here a great deal, our only regret being that it was one year instead of four. " Biddie " is very fond of .music and next year will probably find her at North- western specializing in that art. Seventy-one pnnant i ae Annual AMY E. CLOYES " It is a great thing to win love. " Amy ' s ready laugh and sparkling eyes are known everywhere in the school. She has always been a faithful member of the class, and always proved herself a help. Amy tells us that her main hobby is collection poetry and quotations. She is quite industrious. I ' d say. Amy intends to attend Purdue University to prepare herself tor teaching home economics and home nursing. We wish you luck. Amy. RUSSELL C. BILLS— " Russ " " A little learning is a dangerous thing. " Tennis, ' 23. Russ has been a faithful member of our class ever since the long rocky journey started. He is one of the best tennis players in the city, and we hope that he wins the championship sometime soon. Russ has always been a very good student, and yet has not spent very much time on his lessons, for he is usually seen with a bunch of fellows. His ambition is to own aj flivver, at least that is what he tells us. but with his remarkable printing ability it looks as if he is going to have more than a flivver. Here ' s to your success in life, Russ. PAULINE CRIPE — " Paul " " A happy disposition is a gift of nature. " Pauline is (ine of our students who can write a prize essay. She won high honors in a contest conducted by a real estate firm and we think that she stirely earned her reward. As well as writing essays Pauline can typewrite and she has earned a profhciency certificate, which is more than we have been able to do. She is a perfect ex- ample of the old saying, " Labor reaps its rewards. " DORSEY BELT " And still the wonder grew That one small head could carry all he knew, " Track, ' 25. As a quiet and unassuming fellow Dorsey has taken his place in the Senior class in a manner quite in accord with his nature. He has passed his four years here in making his impressions upon our minds through his gameness and interest as a track man and student. He is truly the kind of person who goes far towards making the world better. LOIS FRIBLEY " A welcome addition to the school. " Although Lois is very quiet, she is the kind of girl upon whom the foundation of our class rests. When Lois came to E. H. S., she put her shoulder to the wheel and helped to carry things forward. If. in her future life she does this, she is certain of a very happy life wiiich we are sure that she will have. Seventy-two f nnattt 1326 Annual -.i ALDEN CHARLESWORTH— " Aldie " " I ' ll have my say. " Junior Class Play; Dra.niatic.s Club; " Master Will of Stratford " ; Cheer Leader; Football, ' 25. Aldie! talking again? or arguing? ' ' ell. anyway, whether it is an argument in recitation, class meeting, or class party. Aldie de- mands a hearing and usually has the last word. Just the same. Aldie is one of the peppiest members of our class; his sociability and good nature have furnished a lot of fun, not only at our parties but also around school. He says athletics is his chief hobby, and believe it, because he is usually playing football or basketbal during his spare hours; and he has served E. H. S. being one of our faithful yell leaders for the past two years. He isn ' t sure where he will be next year — Illinois. Purdue, or maybe, Michigan. Well, wherever he goes, we are sure Aldie will prosper. MARTHA LA MAR FOST E R— " Mart " " Sensibility is the power of a woman. " Martha has been an ever faithful member of our class for four years. She tells us that her main hobby is reading mystery stories, and that her great ambition is to be a physician and surgeon. She intends to enter the Vanderbilt School of Medicine, and with an am- bition like that. Martha is sure to be a success and a credit to our class. RAYMOND BURNSTEIN— " Ray " " What he will to do, he does with a will. " " Ray " thinks that there is nothing better than dancing and we used to say that we think the way he thinks. " Ray " has always sup- ported the class by coming to the parties. Although he likes dancing, he is a chemistry shark and we don ' t mean except. " Ray " is going to be an osteopath and we Avish him success. NELLIE GARMAN " The mildest manners and the bravest mind. " Xellie is another meml.ter of our class whom we will all remember most favorably. She is one of the prudent beings that inhabit this earth and believe in being seen and not heard. But whenever Xellie does open her mouth, something worth listening to comes out. We are very proud that our class has the honor of graduating such a girl as Nellie. f yh , ll (J O ' " A work of real merit fincJs favor at last. " Elmo is admired and respected by all who come in contact with her because of her many good qualities. She has always been a very good student, and especially likes to study science.

" Katy " is very studious, but nevertheless, whenever Mr. Goodtime knocks at the door " Katy " is right there to enter in the festivities. O y ALVIN ARNOLD— " AI " " Every man ought to know his own business best. " Alvin can be boasted of as one of the class ' best students, in fact you could nearly always find him studying or reading some book. He is one out of a tliousand who likes everything and everybody and dis- likes nothing in particular. Who could ask anytme to l)e more agree- able? We hope, and really expect to hear of Alvin winning some big " case some day, because he will probably be a noted lawyer. RUTH BABCOCK " An inborn grace that nothing lacked. Of culture or appliance — The warmth of genial courtesy, The calm of self-reliance. " Ruth has always been a g K.d, faithtul servant, loyal to her class, and will ever be true to the Alunmi.

" Darrel is i)ne of the more quiet niembers of r.ur class, although he is always present at all the class parties, and always wants to know afterwards when we are going to have another one. So it is evident that he has a good time. He was always a loyal suppi ' rter of athletics and could always be found at the games. Also he was a member of the football squad in ' 2.5. Rarrel says sometime in the future you will find him at Purdue. HERMOYNE WH ITM EYE R— " Polly " " Winning in her way and pleasant in her smile.

She has been in a number of Little Theater plays and also will be re- membered by her very successful part in the Junior Class play. Polly hopes to be either a. Dramatics or an English teacher in the future, and judging from the way she can act we think she will be a good lone) Dramatics teacher. You had better decide that way. Polly. Seventy-five f nnanl ih b Annual June Class History ' e hereby attempt tu write the history of this the June Class of ' 26, the records hav- ing been lost. In the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and twenty-two, we started our peritid of pageship in the castle of E. H. S. The first fall nothing but studj-ing was attempted, liut in mid-year we chose our first leader and representatixes to the Court of E. H. S. : Chief Page, Stanley Raymer; Assistant Chief Page, ' inifred Stahly; Scribe, Charlotte Barger; Shecklekeeper, Harvey W ' eippert. We enjoyed a few social events, although as before, Ave spent most of t)ur time in study in order to obtain a good foundation for our after life. After three short months of vacation we started another year. This was to be the last of our pageship. It was time to elect our leaders again. They were : Chief Page. Stanley Raymer; Assistant, Ted Piatt; Scribe, Winifred Stahly; Shecklekeeper, Reeve Emmons; and Jollification Chairman, Alice LaBrie. During this year we enjoyed a party given in the Banquet hall of the Castle of E. H. S. We were honored liy the presence of Baron Xoel, Baron Osbtm, Duchess Boone, Lady Cunningham, and Lady Nordland. The Jollification committee planned a delightful evening. In mid-winter, we were allowed a vacation from our duties. After two weeks we took up our tasks again and re-elected our representatives; Kenneth Fields to be our leader, Stanley Raymer his assistant, Charlotte Barger the Scribe, Reeve Emmons the Shecklekeeper, and as head of the Jollification Committee, Alice LaBrie was again chosen. Although there were a few social events, the records were among those lost. At last the eighteen weeks passed and also our preparations to take final examinations to determine our ability as pages. A ' e now return to the Castle as Squires. Un September 16, 1924, we elected as our of- ficers ; Kenneth Fields to be our leader in the affairs of state ; Reeve Emmons became his assistant of state ; ] Iary Ann Culp the Scribe ; John Miller was given charge of the Exche- quer, and Mary Alice Timmons became the leader of the Jollification Committee. As we were in need of a new director. Princess Sherrick was chosen. It was understood that we must make some money and the possil ility of a play was discussed. The play, " Come Out of the Kitchen " was soon given, and it was proclaimed a success by everyone. The Jollification Committee entertained us at a Hallowe ' en party on October 24, 1 24, at the " Boy Scout Inn. " There was a large supper aiting for us when we arrived. ' e were again honored by the presence of Baron Xoel, Baron C)sl)un, Lady Cunningham and Prin- cess Sherrick. Nothing more happened until January 9, 1925, when a bolisled was obtained and twenty-five squires and mistresses with Marquis Jones, Princess Sherrick, Lady Martin and Lad} ' DePew rode to a chateau at Dunlap where a hot kmch was served. Just before the close of our first year as squires we enjoyed a joint party with those in their last year. This was one of the famous " Prom ' s, " held at the " Tavern " at Christiana Lake. A banquet was served and afterward dancing was the diversion. So came the close of another year of both servitude and pleasure. Once more we took u]i the duties of squires and mistresses onl}- to hasten to the end of our journey through the four years at the beloved Castle of E. H. S. Once again our par- ties and studies were resumed. The first fun of the year was a party given in the gymnas- ium, a " Hard Times Party, " at which there were all kinds of beggars and tramps. Soon came the Senior Banquet, the last of the joint parties for the two Senior classes. At this Squire James Olson, of the older group, took us far into the future for an aeroplane ride. As the close of our servitude drew near, we were royally entertained by the Squires serving one year below us at the " Prom, " the greatest and most brilliant social affair of the season. It is now time for our class to go out as full-fledged knights, to enter the great strug- gle of life and to find and gi ' e our best. Seventy. six June Class Prophecy People were hurrying here and there. This was the turmoil of vacation season in the Grand Cen- tral Station of New York. Breathlessly I shoved my way to the ticket window for 1 was Elkhart-bound. I laid my hard-earned money on the counter and as I looked into the face of the ticket agent. I beheld the countenance of Kenneth Mikkelson. " Well, " said Kenneth, " you couldn ' t resist the lure of the band instrument city any more than I could. I just returned from spending two weeks there and I certainly found a change. When you go there don ' t fail to eat at Ernest Cornetet ' s waffle shoppe. " Taking my ticket, I wended my way slowly toward the gate. Once settled in the Pullman I looked up at my traveling partners and they were none other than Thelraa Keyser and Betty Proctor. After enthusiastically exchanging embraces and greetings, we settled down to talk of our activities since we left E, H. S. Both girls were just returning from abroad where they had made a suc- cess in Chariot ' s Revue and were now planning a concert tour of the United States. Thelma was still the same laughing girl and Betty had not changed at all. Between Betty ' s outbursts, Thelma managed to tell me that Blynn Lauby and his wife, who was formerly Lucille Fritz, were on the same boat on which they had returned. Blynn had invested in real estate and had made a fortune. Thelma then showed me a beautiful bracelet which she had bought in Paris at a shop run by Thelma Skahen. Betty interrupted with: " Did you know that John Rhodes had attracted considerable attention as an artist? Vivienne Scoles and Edgar Hartman are also studying at a Parisian art school. " Before we had reached Elkhart we had planned to have a reunion of the 1926 June graduates. When we arrived in Elkhart, I was made a guest at the Keyser home There we completed the plans for the reunion which was to be held the following evening. Among the first to arrive were Stanley Raymer and Leon Schmidt. I learned that Stanley was a noted lawyer and was still prominent in dramatic circles. Leon now was a science teacher in E. H. S. Another of the guests was Arthur Johnson. He is still eager to get a good partner to do the old dance craze, the Charleston. Needless to say. he was seen with Betty and it seemed like old times sake to see them dance together. Music was furnished by Dorothy Heitsman, Fred Holtz. and Raymond Van Dusen, all of the E. H. S. Syncopators. Dorothy wore a beautiful gown, de- signed by Ruth Hosteller. While we were talking, some one tapped me on the shoulder and I looked around to behold Marva Long. Marva wanted to make a speech for the Anti-Saloon League and we learned that she had made a success in Wakarusa and other cities. Just then Robert Winslow claimed me for a dance. He had to return the next morning to Hollywood where he was fulfilling a contract with the Pass- more Film Company. Robert is to play the leading part in " Love ' s Labor Lost, ' by Jeanette Jonas. One of the features of the evening was a dancing contest, won by Harvey Greenleaf and Gwen- dolyn Martin. John Miller and Alice Homman won second place. Fred Miller presented the winners with a loving cup. About 10 o ' clock George Trautman and Gabriel Smole phoned that they would be unable to come, as their motor had broken down. When the guests were leaving I had the opportunity to talk with Tom Collins who is the director of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. Later I met Gerald DeLoe who is the owner of the DeLoe Drug Company and he told me that Richard Virgil had become famous as a geologist and that Cleo White was his assistant. He also told me that Vernor Farley owned a bakery and was so famous for his pies that Charley Chaplin used them in all of his pictures. But, as the poets say: " Life is short and time is fleeting. " And as I jour- neyed back to New York the short glimpses of the ' 26 graduates became a happy memory which I was long to cherish.

This is the June Class of 1926, broadcasting from Station E.H.S.

" Our men of the battlefields, both football and basketball, being not a little proud of their success in the past years, and having survived the effects of the fudge furnished hv a certain member of the fairer sex, do becpieath to the coming athletes their strength that the future team may win both state and nation-wide chaiupionshij) in the years to come, ])romis- ing loyal support from the June Class of 1926. Well, well, some more telegrams; a few personals by the way. Here are some of them; Ethamar .Allen does bequeath to one Gordon Johnson his " strength of an ice-man " and his " form of an aesthetic dancer " so that one may also become a great football ])layer as well as the captain of our basketball team. Miss Betty Proctor being a thoroughly thoughtful and unselfish soul wishes, liefore she ends her life and career as " Charleston Dancer " of the school, to bequeath one little share of her Xotre Dame " thrills " t(j Jannet ) erlease, a bright-e}ed girl of one of the under- classes. After a ■erv lengthv argument e ha e induced our own Dorothy Lord to liequeath her shiek to the highest bidder of the under-classmen. Don ' t crowd, girls. Ability to write very neat and even readaljle minutes of the Class is willed away by our charming ladies, Charlotte P arger and Mary Ann Culp to . deline Horwich. for her class has valualile minutes. For the P.anes twins our own Dottie Clark says she ' s willing to be scalped in order that the twins might di ide her beautiful curly locks between them and hoard them to their ery graves. Long live the twins! Folks, if you hear static, it is only .Alden Charlesworth }-elling at me to tell you that as cut-ups he and Bob Passmore will their al.iility to Ijilly Hill and Jimmie Neale, thinking they are a little too reserved. We. as our class, being so heaxily burdened wish now to will away a little excess talent. For instance IMarjorie Brannon says that any one who wants her sax may have it since her mother will not let her play " Jazz. " Poor Marj ! And our man of words, Stanley Raymer. bequeathes his ability to make speeches, to Charlie Schutt. in order that that one may really say something when he talks. ])oli Chandler, Lavon McDowell and Nile Fergison do bequeath their artists ' skill to Louis Globensky, Ruth filler and ' ern Garst respectively hoping they being alread}- en- dowed with some talent, will make a great name for themselves. Kenny Fields, our president, wills his ability to pilot a class to Edson Fish. Lse it with care, Edson ! As our concluding item, the June Class wills the right of being executors and execu- trixes, of this our last will and testament to our patient and loving faculty.

As before, everything was left to Coach Boone to put a team in the field that ■ ' ould at least come up to the expectations of e ' en the most pessimistic of the Elkhart fans. Miller, Martin, Allen. Crofoot, Stoner. and Hughes weve the regulars left, around which Boone had to mould a team that cotild at least hold the prestige in Indiana High School cir- cles that the Big Blue Avalanche had established in the preceding- year. Out of the nine games played Elkhart won eight and lost one to the Maroon team from Mishawaka. AMien the situation is analvzed it amounts only to this much: In the opening game of the season against Logansport the team as liound to uphold the honor of the school and played a hard, fast game of football; the result was another overwhelming vic- tory for what seemed to be another Big Blue Avalanche, j ' rom that day the team seemed to lay down and the pep and drive that thev exhibited in the initial game did not show up for the remainder of the season. Elkhart, however, can be proud of the team this year be- cause its record is one that can be en ' ied bv other schools. N inety-eight f nnattt 132B AnnMl CAPT. EUGK.XK HL " ( ;HES Kiley was there when the opp ' n- ent started artjund his end of the line. He could lie depended upon to turn in any runner. Sheeney captained the team in a way that showed his abilitj " as a leader. In the Port ' Wayne Central game Eugene injured his arm. leaying his position to be tilled by CroJ ' oot as oaptaiA and Allen as end. This is Kugene ' s third year as a varsity man and everyone agrees he is one of the best wing men E. H. S. has ever turned out. CLIFFORD STUXEK Clil¥ was moved from liis end position to halfback this year and he proved to be a steady ground- gainer throughout the whole sea- son. Stoner was injured in the Warsaw game and he wasn ' t in the moleskin often for the rest of the season. Cliff is a deadly passer and he has the ability to sail into the ether after a high one. Last year Stoner was given honoralile mention on the all state team and we are expecting great things of him in his remaining year. THE LOGANSPORT GAME Ha ' ii ' ig had only t V(i weeks oi practice together, nnthing pheiidinenal was expected of the Bhie team. Elkhart fans, ho ' wever, were due for a surprise, for with Aliller. Posev, Stoner and Weybright skirting the ends and sprinting through large holes made bv the Blue forward wall. Elkhart ]iiled up 71 points on a team that finished high in the Southern con- ference and were supposedly strong contenders for the State Championship this rear. -Mthfjugh no new stars were uncovered it looked as though Boone had formed a back- held that was strong on offense and equally powerful on defense. . nd the line, nearly all experienced men. o])ened gaping holes in the Maroon wall and held the Logansport backs to only one first down. Posey, a new backfield man. jdayed a good game in his first varsity fracas by running, plunging, and twisting his way to the goal line five times, and Miller, the veteran fullback, came up to all expectations and was the backbone of the powerful Elkhart offense. N inety-nine f ttMttt 132H Annual ETHAMER AEEEX. Guard. " Do as you would be done by. but do it first, " that ' s Eth ' s motto, and he held good to it for the four years that he has been in high school. Eth was handy with his mitts and if a man p:ot near him he must have crept up to him from behind. Eth was always there when an opponent tried to break through the center of the line and when a hole was needed, Eth was always on the ,mark to open it. This is Eth ' s second year as a reg- ular and his fourth season on the SQuad. VERXOX MARTIN. Tackle. Vernon is the big- boy of the squad. His 19U pounds enabled him to pile up four letters in football — one niore than any other man on the squad. Last year he was cho- sen by different writers as one of the best tackles in the state. He was one of the strongest and most dependable of all the linemen. He could open a hole when it was most needed and he was a power- ful cog in the Blue machine. ROLAND CROFOOT. Tacklf. " Smuck " is another of our old faithfuls. Although this is only his second year on the squad he has been able to hold down a first team berth both seasons. More than once Elkhart ' s opponents have been disappointed when trying to make a gain off tackle. In the Mishawaka game. Crofoot was seriously injured and was unable to play with the Seniors in the final game of their career. Last season " Smuck " played guard and several prominent sport writers gave him a position on their all state teams. THE KENDALLVILLE GAME The fulluwing- week Elkhart ' s pigskin warridrs tra eled to Kendalhille and, inspired by their success, they assumed the confidence of a seasoned team. Confidence is a great asset to a team but over-confidence is sometimes fatal as it nearly proved to be in the case of Elk- hart vs. Kendallville. Elkhart received the first kick-oft and started a powerful vet ineffective drive against the Scarlet forward vall. With Schaefifer, the giant Kendallville center, and Jones and Pren- tice, t o speedy backfield men stopping the Elkhart ball-carriers dead, Weybright had to resort to ground-gaining liy means of the air route which pro ed equally inefficient. The scoring started when Prentice intercepted a pass that was meant for an Elkhart end and dashed 60 yards for a touchdown. Prentice kicked goal and the Blue team -as on the short end of a 7 to score. Elkhart again recei ed the kick-ofl: " and started a determined flrive toward the oppon- ents goal from their own 30-yard line. End runs, and plunges by Posey, Miller and Stoner brought the pigskin to the four-yard line where Stoner plunged over for Elkhart ' s first score. Posey kicked goal and tied the count. 7-7 . The second half was a repetition of the first period with Elkhart ' s last score coming when Posey netted a touchdown on a reverse. The Blue stock has taken quite a slump. One Hundred pnnant 192a Annual WILLIAM MILLER. Fullback. Bill is perhaps the most consist- ent ground gainer that the Blue team possessed. He could hit the line like a battering ram and skirt the ends like a deer. This is his third year as a letter man and in his Junior year he was rated as one of the three best fullbacks in tlie state. Several times this year Bill was shifted to halfback and he showed his ound-gaining ability in that position as well as in the fullback job. , GORDO ' S JOHXSOX, Halfback Gordy is perhaps tlie youngest man on the squad but although he lacked in experience he took after his Scandinavian ancestors and proved himself to be one of the best ground-gainers that Coach Boone could find this year. John- son plays either half or end and he is equally good in both positinns. Gordy has two more years and we are hoping " to see him come out strong in the rest of his high school career. KEXXETH P-IELDS, Halfback. Kenny was the dark horse of the squad. He came out for football with a determination to .make the team and he did. His long--range punts saved many a touchdown for E. H. S. and his ability to " steam roller " liis opponents gained a great many yards for the Blue team. This is Kenneth ' s Senior year and although he has repre- sented Elkhart for only one year. We know that he will not be for- gotten. THE WARSAW GAME In the third game uf the season against the Tigers at Warsaw the l hie team was de- termined ti) atone for their poor showing made against Kendallville the ])rece(Hng week. During the early part of the game it seemed that Elkhart had not vet come out of the rut into which it had fallen, but late in the third quarter things began to happen and Bill Miller carried the ball over for the first counter of the game on a fake buck from about the 50-yard mark. From then on things began to move more rapidly and with Posey. Johnson, Wey- bright and Miller carrying the ball through the line and around the ends the Big Blue Ava- lanche put the pigskin over the tiger goal line three more times before the period ended. The second half started with the reserves carrying the battle to their opponents. They fought the Tigers on even terms but failed to score until early in the last quarter when Lockton, substitute end, kicked a field goal from the 18-yard line. With about four minutes to play the first string was sent into the fray and shoved the l)all acriiss the chalk once more, making the score .V to 0. Blue stock is again back to par. One Hundred One f nnattt i92fi Annual RICHARD VIRGIL, Guard. Dick came to us from Kendall- ville and we certainly were g " lad to get him. Last year Virgil was a reserve and this season he was able to step right into a first team position. In Virgil and Allen, Elk- hart can claim the best pair of guards in the northern part of the state. Virgil proved to be a tower of strength on both ofTense and de- fense. He never failed to open a hole and in the Mishawaka game he turned back the Maroon ' s best three times on the one-yard line. It will certainly be hard to fill Dick ' s shoes next year. KVERETT WEYBRIGHT Quarterback. Ev was the pilot of the 1925 machine and not once during the whole season did he fail to come through with a wise selection of plays or a little bit of strategy when it was most needed. This is Ev ' s first year as a regular, but nevertheless he held the i osition like a veteran. Although he was lacking in size he proved to be a dangerous runner and gained many a yard by his clever footw irk and his accurate passing. GEORGE GRUEER, Center. Although rather small to fill the pivot position George made up for it in fight. This is Bud ' s first year as a regular and even though he lacked in experience he Avas able to hold his own with the best. He thought that it didn ' t depend on the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog, and he held fast to his creed the whole season and gave the biggest as much as he received. THE HOWE GAME Then, from the little town of Howe comes a powerful Gray eleven to contest Elkhart ' s claim for the state championship. It was a determined team that faced that formidable Cadet line and although they fought like demons they failed to score during the first quarter. The second quarter started with Elkhart holding the l)all on the 30-yard line. Miller, Johnson and Stoner hit the line and skirted the ends for long gains and before the half ended the Blue team had torn the Gray line asunder and scored three touchdowns. During the entire third quarter the Elkhart reserves were on even terms and at the start of the fourth period Daugherty plunged over for a touchdown. The first team was again sent into the fray and immediately afterwards Posey, the drop-kick artist of the squad, boot- ed a prettv fiield goal from the 38-yard line. The score now stood 31-0 in favor of Elkhart. The remainder of the game was a see-saw affair in the middle of the field, both teams relying on the forward pass. The Howe team proved to be very efficient in the aerial game and as the game ended the ball rested on the 10-yard line. Blue stock is steady. One Hundred Two f ttnattt i92fi Annual GERAX.D DELOE, Guard Gerald is another of the faithful Seniors. Although this is only Jer- ry ' s second year on the squad he proved tu be an apt pupil and was pushed up the linf until finally he was given a first-teani berth. When Allen was shifted to end Gerakl took his place and when a few ex- tra yards were needed he never failed to open a hole. And if the other team needed a few yards they always failed to find a hole where Deloe Vasn ' t supposed to be. His ISU pounds proved to be a great defensive factor in the line of the Blue team. J()HX POSEY. Halfback Although John didn ' t play much aftfr the Kendallville game, he came through the season with al- most as many points as any other man on the team. In the first three games he ran wild but was injured in the Kendallville game and was unal)le to play much the remainder of the season. John is the field goal artist of the squad : his field goals always came in handy to pep up the team or to help pile up the score. This is John ' s last year and if Elkhart finds another backfield man f his ealilier they will cer- tainl. lie fr " ft.trtunate. HOWARD RODERICK. End. Howard is another of our six- footers. His size enabled him to reach high into the ether after a pass or break through the inter- ference and bring d :)wn a runner. This is Howard ' s second year as a letter man and the experience that he gained from being knocked around last year by the first team enabled him to earn a first team berth this season. He is a wing- man that is hard to take out of a play and never fails to open a hole when he is called upon to do so. FORT WAYNE GAME Out of the smoke of Fort ' ayne comes an undefeated lilue team to contest lilkhart ' s claim for the state championship. Captain JJaker kicked off to We} Ijright on his own 10-}-ard Hne and he returned the liall to the 30-yard hne. Then, with Fields. Miller and ' e l)right carrj-ing the ball, the Blue Avalanche rapidh " nioxed toward the opponents ' goal line. Elkhart scored the first touch- down after seven minutes of play. Elkhart kicked off to the down-staters and Baker re- ceived the ball behind his own goal and ran it out to the 25-yard line. The Blue Avalanche held for three downs and Baker kicked to Weyliright on his own 45- -ard line. A lateral pass, Weybright to Hughes, netted 30 yards. Another pass. Fields to Roderick, added 15 more yards and Miller plunged the remaining distance for another touchdown as the half ended. The score was 21 to in favor of the Big Blue Avalanche. The second half started with Fort Wayne in possessicm of the ball on their o ' n 40-vard line. Elkhart held and Baker kicked to Posey who returned the ball to the middle of the field. I ' osey made 10 yards around the end and Miller added four more. Fort Wayne held and Posey dropped back to the 45-yard line and booted the leather Ijetween the goal posts for a counter. Elkhart kicked off to Fort Wayne and a long pass, Baker to Jasper, netted a touchdown. Elkhart again kicked to Fort Wayne and after four more passes the Blue team scored another touchdown as the game ended. The final score was 31-13. One Hundred Three pennant lasfi Annual GERALD LAMBDIN This is Gerald ' s first year as a letter man. He has been on the squad for three years and the ex- perience he gained through his per- sistency won him a letter this year. He was a steady and dependable player and could be relied upon to open a hole in a line when it was needed. His own logic ran true to life for he claimed that although large bodies move slowly, when they light they leave an impres- sion. This is Gerald ' s last year and he moves out of the realm of high school athletics along with the rest of the Seniors. TED PLATT Ted is the smallest man on the squad and also the fastest. His motto is, " I may be down but I ' m never out. " He ' s here and there and everywhere. This is Edward ' s second vear on the squad and he has been a valuable reserve both years. Tt.:d ' s great love is toward elongated ends who reach out over his .lead and pull down a thirty- ynrd pass. But nevertheless Ttd n-.akes up for the lost ground by gaining back about three times as much. ROBERT LOCKTON Bob is one of the youngest mem- bers of the snuad and was a valu- able reserve all season. He is an end hard to take out of a play and very seldom fails to turn a play in. Bob ' s only failings are cutback and reverse plays, but with a little more experience we know that B(tb will he a powerful cog in the 1926 machine. THE HARRISON TECH GAME Having had an open date on the 25th, Coach Boone decided to take on one of the powerful Chicago team which was rated high in the City League Conference, and Harri- son Tech fell the victim. Harrison was the first to score when SuUixan, the speedy Chicago flash, broke through the Elkhart line and dashed 50 yards for a touchdown. Elkhart A -as again on the short end of a 7 to score. The Blue team became desperate and threw passes till the air was black. Several long passes took the ball to the 5-yard line vhere the cleverness of Weybright, the Elkhart quarter, saved the da} ' . There was but 20 seconds to play before the half ended and Weybright started an end rim in a final effort to score. The interference became smothered and as the whistle blew, ending the half, " Ev " tossed the ball across the goal line into the waiting arms of Fields. Crofoot kicked goal tying the score at 7 and 7. The second half • •as a repetition of the first with the Windy City boys fighting stub- Ijornly but slo vly weakening under the hard-hitting of the Elkhart backs. During the final quarter Miller plunged over the chalk mark twice more, making the score 19 to 7 in favor of the Big Blue Avalanche. Elkhart ' s stock still at par. One Hundred Four fj nnattt 192a Annual FLOYD LOTT Floyd is one of the most faithful of the Senior Warriors. For three years he has stood the buffeting of the first string and finally, in his last year, his dreams of a coveted " E " have materialized. Floyd play- ed end and fullback and he held down either position like a veteran. He was able to hit the line for long- gains with amazing regularity and when shifted to the end posi- tion, he never failed to turn the runner in or smash his way through the interferente and bring him down. THE GOSH Each year it seems that the Elkhart fans ancient rivals — the Crimson of Goshen. Des Blue and White rooters flocked to Forman fie to defeat the Goshenites. The game was played in a sea of mud vi Early in the first quarter Daugherty had a ch slippery ball caused him to fumble and when inches from the chalk mark. Goshen kicked failed Fields broke k)Ose and carried the ball three downs and ] Iiller fumbled on the next Early in the second quarter Elkhart gain steadily down the field for a touchdown. Po The Blue team ' s second score came in the through the Crimson line and ran 40 }-ards fo the game and the rest of the period was a line- in the mud. Elkhart ' s stock is beginning to wobble. HOWARD JOHNSOX Howard played his ftrst varsity game this year at quarterback and when he wa.s sent to replace We. •- bright he held the pilot position in a jiianner that inspired confnTence in his team mates. Howdj ' ' s pet peeve is to have a backfield man run into his arms. He likes for them to put up a little opposition so that he can get the joy of bring- ing them to earth with a thud. Howard broke his arm in the lishawaka game and was unable to finish the season along with the rest of the Seniors.

THE MISHAWAKA GAME For two years Elkhart ' s teams had run over nearly e er}- other aggregation in the northern part of the state with little opposition, liut Mishawaka put a team on the field that was skillful in every department of the game. They had a whirlwind otiense and they were equally good on defense. During the earlv part of the game the Blue team fought the : Iaroons on even terms, gaining perhaps a small advantag e. Mishawaka held the Blue team for downs and Fields punted 60 vards to Lindzv. Several short passes, Brady to Lindzy. netted 30 yards and a long pass, Bradv to Webster, added 30 more more. The ball now rested on the Elkhart 10- yard line. Two more plavs and D, Brady took the ball over on an off-tackle play. Elkhart elected to receive and Bradv kicked to lohnson who was downed in his tracks. Elkhart couldn ' t gain, so Fields again kicked to Lindzv. Smashing off tackle and sweeping around the ends the Maroons again carried the ball to the 5-yard line where A . l rady plunged across as the half ended. During the second half Elkhart plaved a reckless game of football, throwing passes and playing ' an offensive game. The last quarter finally became a ri.it. The Blue team fought to the ' last scrimmage but it was hopeless — thev were bettered. , , r , c i n The Maroons possessed a team of fighters and true sportsmen. 1 he hnal score was 54-0.

THE GARRETT GAME Having suffered a severe defeat at the hands of the Maroons the week before, the Big Blue Avalanche was determined to atone for it. Nothing was known of the strength of the Tiger team but a hard game was expected by all. Hollopeter kicked to Miller on his own I ' O-yard line and he returned to the 35-yard line. .■ lateral pass, Weybright to Hughes, netted about 25 yards and a long pass. Fields to Rod- erick, added 15 more. Line bucks by Miller and Fields carried the ball to the 7-yard line where Johnson took the ball over on an off-tackle play. Garrett kicked off to Miller who returned to the 50-yard line. Weybright gained 15 yards on an end run and the remaining distance Miller plunged in a number of plays for the second touchdown. Elkhart kicked off to Keith who was stopped in his tracks. Garrett held on their own 20-yard line as the half ended. The second half started with the reserves in the game. Garrett kicked to Piatt who ran it back 40 yards. From then on with Daugherty and Forney bumping the line they scored another touchdown. The first team was again sent in and Miller scored two more touch- dowiis as the game ended. Blue stock is sold. One Hundred Seven f nnmtt i92fi Annual COACH BOONE During the time Coach lioone has spent in E. H. S. he has esta1)hshed a reputation as coach of exceptional alsihty. This fact was e ' en more thoroughly confirmed l v the hrilliant record enjoyed by our teams this past year. Our football team under his able directit n carried our colors to victor}- in eight out of nine games, and our own field is at yet unsullied 1i " an opj)onent ' s victory march. Our basketball team, though they suffered slightl}- this year, came through with a num- ber of brilliant victories over strong teams. In track we showed wonderful development, and the record of f e wins and only one defeat speaks for itself. Athletics, under Coach Boone ' s direction, ha ' e come to the foreground in our school program. One state championship in football, a strong fiid the following year for that same championship as well as a basketball team representing us at a state meet for the first time in ten years, and a second place at the state meet in track speak for his ability and knowl- edge as a coach. The Annual can only hope that Elkhart will retain his leadership and enjoy as many vic- tories in the future as they have in the past.

Although their victories were rather spasmodic and bunch- ed into one or two week-ends we can still say that we are proud of our team. They fought to the last whistle and often came from behind e -en though the odds were massed against them. With only two weeks of practice Elkhart went up against the strong seasoned Xappa- nee team and gave them a tough hard battle but were unable to ox ' ercome the 11 point lead which the hite and Pdue boys had piled up. Then the Elkhart cpiintet made its way to Kendalhille and upset the dope by winning from the crimson team by a close score. Ken- dallville had downed the LaPorte Slicers and little hope was held for a ictory there. The following week-end Elkhart fared much better and won both its games, one from Bristol and another from the ' arsaw Tigers. After that the Blue clad boys became more confident and the next Friday night thev met that school of unhappy memories — Mishawaka. Alisha- waka had a tall fast team and they defeated the Elkhart cjuintet by a large score. Worn out by their strenuous grind against the Maroons the}- next gaxe battle to the flashy Mil- ford five. Elkhart led up until the last three minutes when Miller, a substitute guard, rang in two baskets beating us by three points. Possiblv a little discouraged by two successive defeats Elkhart then journeyed to LaPorte, but the Leitzman s} ' Stem, was too much for the Blue team and they fell before the Slicers, 46-26. The following night Bristol shipped its highly touted team to Elkhart and b}- plaving a hard fast defensive game they were able to gain a victory over the Blue Blazers. Elkhart found itself falling into a slump and the next night, although they held little hope of a victory, they met the strong South Bend team on their own floor. The Bears were evidently over-confident and before they were fully aware of the fact the Blue had piled up 10 points to the Bears 3. Then the South Bend defense tightened and the remainder of the half Elkhart was held to only 6 markers. The last half was a repetition of the first with Elkhart fighting stublxTrnl}- to hold their 4-point lead. ' hen the gun cracked the Blue team was on the long end of a 25-22 score. Then fron-i down south came a strong Auburn team confident of a victorv over the Blue Blazers. But they were due for a surprise for Elkhart played the same brand of ball that they did the previous night and Auburn fell, 27-24. It seemed as though Elkhart had come out of the slump into which it had fallen and the next Friday night they again met their ancient Crimson Rivals frcjn-i C.oshen. The Blue team was bound to atone for its last defeat and they went into the game determined to -vvin. Goshen battled them through the first half Init finally their spirit broke and Elkhart piled up a 13-point lead and came out on the long end of a 33 to 20 score. The following Saturday night the peppern-iint valley boys made their -way to the E. PI. S. g}-m and handed the Blue team its second defeat at their hands. Then to Mishaw-aka, w-here the sterling defense of the Maroons pro -ed too strong for the Elkhartans downing them 32-12. Back to their old stamping grounds again Elkhart met the LaPorte Slicers for the second time in the season. The first half the Leitzn-ian 1)oys went wild and amassed a 10-point lead. But the second period was a different story; Elkhart rallied with Lirkey leading the group and held the Crimson clad boys to 7 points and scored 16 themseehes. Wlien the whistle blew ending hostilities, Elkhart was only two points short of a victor -. The following week was possibly the most discouraging of all. ( )n Friday night Elkhart met defeat at the hands of the Plymouth C|uintet and Saturday the Blue team fell before the South 1-iend Bears jtutting an end to the 1925-26 scheduled season. In the opening game of the tournament Elkhart met the Bristol five and defeated them after 30 minutes of hard fighting and bad breaks. And in the semi-finals P ' lkhart lost its final game of the season to the Crimson and White Goshen outfit. One Hundred Eleven f nnattt 192H AmtMl Second Team. 1st Row — Stephenson, Uanielson. Lockton, I ' ersonnett, Hoshaw. 2nd Row — Proctor, Sorenson, Crawford, E. Johnson, Neale, Coach IJoone. THE SECOND TEAM ' S SEASON The second team this year proved to be one of the l est that E. H. S. ever enjoyed and their season ' s record seems to be sufficient proof of their cjuality and calibre. Out of nineteen games played they only dropped two; one to Mishawaka and one to Nappanee and in l30th of these contests the score was close. In place of the re gular county tournament held each year, a second team tournament was planned and held at W akarusa. There were 12 teams entered, one of which was Xap- panee. In the first game of the tournament the Blue reserves downed ' akarusa Ijy a large score and in the semi-finals they bested Goshen and met Nappanee in the final game. Nappanee had defeated Elkhart in their first game and a battle royal was expected. The Blue Seconds were all keyed for the game and after the first half they proved that they were far superior to the down-county boys, and won a glorious victory to cop the county championship. The second team squad consisted of Neale, Stephenson, Danielson, Lockton, Person- nett, Hoshaw, Proctor, Sorenson, Crawford, F. Johnson. Art Buerle, who had plaved on the second team up until the time of the tournament and Bob Lockton were honored by being placed on several mythical All-County teams.

Markey fighting every step held fifth place at the finish. The mile relay team finished second, and Piatt and Steimer finished sixth just outside of the point winners. The great feature of the State Meet was the record of Walters of Kokomo, who made 10 points alone, and broke two records. KALAMAZOO RELAYS In the Tenth Annual Kalamazoo Relay Carnival, Elkhart made a good showing against high-class teams from Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio, by gathering in a second, a third, a tie for third, and a fourth place. The Elkhart medley team, composed of Teeters, Miller, Lowery and Markey, lost by a scant three inches after leading most of the way. The half-mile team, composed of Piatt. Houghton. Sparr and Peterson, took a third, although the baton had been dropped. The sprint relay team, Stoner, Piatt, Peter- son and Miller, took a fourth place. Blynn Lauby t ied for third in the pole vault at a height of 10 feet 9 inches, and drew fourth place medal on the draw. Both Verne Garst and Wayne Steimer won their heats in the 220 hurdles, but their time was too slow to qualify for the finals.

Among these various organizations was the Alumni asso- ciation which did more than any other group and really made the Rice field house possible. With the help of the High School students and the Athletic association, the Alumni were able to raise the $16,000 with which they might build the structure. The dedication took place on September 26, 1926, at 2:30 o ' clock, when Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Wiley, introduced the speaker for the occasion, Mr. R. E. Proctor. Mr. Proctor, in his address, said: ' ' The dedications at some of the big universities, such as Notre Dame, Michigan and Illinois, have been marked bj defeat of the home team, but we will have no jinx with us today, for I shall dispell it with a move of my hand. " And Mr. Proctor was as good as his word, for the Blue and AVhite Avalanche, by downing Logans- port 71-0, had dispelled the well known jinx. The field house is a two-story structure, entirely fire-proof and equipped with showers, lockers, and heating plant, all of the finest quality. There are four large rooms, two on the upper floor and two on the lower floor, and three smaller rooms for storing equipment. The field at one time was a swamp, but lately a drainage ditch has been dug from the railroad track and winds around the field, then emptying into the river just back of the fieldhouse. At the end of the lane there are three clay tennis courts which are open to all High School boys interested in tennis. Surrounding the field is a quarter-mile cinder track, one of the hardest and fastest in northern Indiana. At the south end of the field, just inside the turn, are four pits used for all field events. The Elkhart High School field house is one of the finest in northern Indiana. It is a combination of beauty, service, and convenience. It is a fitting complement for the splendid Rice athletic field of which we are justly proud. The students of Elkhart High School once again desire to thank all the organizations who made possible our athletic field and field house.

Clul) meetings consist of a business session and a program. Talks are given on diflfer- ent specimens of Art by members and outside speakers. The purpose of the club is to give a broader knowledge of fine arts and civic improve- ments to its members. The clul is endeavoring to earn entmgh money to l u • an original painting for the school. The . rt Club came into the lime-light this }-ear especially when they staged one of the largest successes of the year — " The Fun Revue. " In this the club not only showed their ability in artistic designing and arrangement but in excellent dramatic talent. AVith a club composed of such capable and enthusiastic members, we are looking for- ward to seeing the school ' s first original painting hung in its halls quite soon. One Hundred Forty-two f nnant i92fi Annual THE COMMERCIAL CLUB President Thumas Collins Vice-President Lota Webb Secretar - Inez Levin Treasurer John Miller Reporter Marjorie Vright Sponsors Miss Melvin and Miss Kirkland The Commercial Club, which organized a little late this }-ear. has a membership of 80 commercial students. The aim of the Clu1i is to make the Commercial Course more desirable for those enter- ing school and more enjoyalile for those selecting it. The club has accomidished man}- things and expects to do more in the future. The club with the Latin Club sponsored the presentation of a play, " The Mislead- ing Lady, " by the Garrick Players of the Lake Forest College, April 6. Lender the direction of Miss Melvin and Miss Kirkland of the Commercial Dept., si.xteen schools entered into a district contest, held in our school April 24, 1926. Amateur and novice typewriting, beginning and advanced shorthand, beginning and advanced book-keeping and penmanship are the subjects in contest. Winners are sent to IMuncie to the State contest and the Commercial Clul) pavs the ex- penses of those going from our school. In 1924 and 1925, ' hen we sent students to com- mercial contests, we have ranked high and did not feel content with district winnings, but carried oft honors in the State contests. At the state contest, in 1924, Richard Miles received the bronze medal in typewriting and the amateur typewriting team took second place. In 1925, Verna Putt received a bronze medal in t}-pewriting, the novice typewriting team took second place and the advanced shorthand team took second place. ' e expect to do as well or even better in this year ' s State contest. The social committee this year was Lota Webb, Margaret Fetters, George Bock, Tracv Garda and Marjorie W right. One Hundred Forty-three mtmtt 192H Annual DRAMATICS CLUB The Dramatics Club has been organized only two years but in that time it has become one of the most important clubs of the school. AVe think ]Miss Sherrick. our director, is the best director we have ever had. We just have to do our best for her. Officers of the organization are as follows: Last Semester President and Director Miss Sherrick Secretary Dorothy Lord Treasurer ..— Stanley Raymer Stage Managers and Property len — Robert Paulson and Kenneth Fields Publicity Inez Levin Present Semester President and Director Miss Sherrick Secretary- ..Marjory Mathias Treasurer ..Thelma Keyser Publicity Betty Proctor The aim of the club is to give one long, worthwhile drama and a series of one-act plays. These short plays have provided much entertainment for the students this vear. It is safe to say that none of the members will regret the time spent. Those after us must not expect to play, because it requires good, hard, earnest work to be a success. One Hundred Forty-four f nnattt 192a Annual Alumni " They had been friends in youth.

In the afternoon games were played and a few of our lirave Seniors, in spite of the cold weather, had the courage to take a swim. Then it seemed such a long t ' me to wait for the dinner Ijut the delicious dinner that - vas served was worth the wait. During the dinner several talks were given. After the dinner the Plymouth Bell Hops played for the dancing. During the dance favors were given and everyone had a glorious time. We all returned home then in the ■ vee hours of the morning, but one little boy could not find his girl and he had to retur " without her, but it seemed that she got home all right.

Pedestrians don ' t like it and the lots will some day be used — thereby breaking up j ' our childhood memories. 3. Always chase a ball across the street. Wonderful practice for broken-field run- ning. . 4. Never roller-skate on the sidewalk. There are no vehicles to hold on to and you will lose speed. 5. Always hitch on antes, trolleys and wag- ons. You cover much more ground and often give ambulance dri ers a little work. 6. Alwavs coast where trollexs and autos go. Great practice — stars are made that way. 7. Always play around autos and ])ress all liuttons and levers possible, some dav one will start and you will be rewarded. 8. Alwa} ' s touch all kinds of wires.

Ten years older than their Alma Mater, " The Old Reliable " has served — directly or indirectly — the interests of their parents and their grandparents; and we are happy to say a number of the present graduates themselves have alrfeady become patrons of this bank.

Commencement Day will slip quietly into the past, and Elkhart High School can claim ycju no longer as students. Where do you go from here? Some of yiiu will go to college or uni- versit}- next fall; others, through chtiice or necessity, will start immediately into the responsibilities of manhood and vomanhood. In the years which are to come some representatix es of your class will reach the high places iif fame, honor and fortune. Alany roads are be- fore iU. yours it is to chi)0se. We cannot help you make your choice, nor do we wish to. ' hile we know that many have won their va ' to wealth and fame through their work in music, there are many others who. by tal- ent and inclination, are bet- ter fitted for some other calling. Music as a profession is well worth while, and there are other professions equally worthy. But whatever } ' ou do. wherever }ou go from here, there is much that music can do for YOU. Xot financially, jjerhaps. but social- Iv, or in the upbuilding of your own charac- ter. The man or woman who can play an instrument is never on the outside of any grtiup, but its invariably welcomed to the inner circle. There is nothing so stimulating to the mental processes as the study of music. Those of you who go to college will C(jme ni)on the need of music perhaps sooner th;in }our less fortunate classmates. First of all. you will want to make a good fraternity or sorority. We do not say that ability with a saxophone or trumpet is the open sesame to a " bid. " but we do know that it helps, tremendously. Xot because the pla} ' er is a better man or woman, Init because he or she is a better comrade. W ' e like those who entertain us, and we do not like bore.s — jieopile who can neither do or say anything interesting.

Indianapolis College of Pharmacy INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA © Vernon Pancost seems to take the sour pickle. He asked the drummer in the E.H.S. band if he could play the Parker House roll. The portly lady had accidentally taken a rear seat reserved for smokers. With un- concealed indignation she watched the man beside her fill his pipe. " Sir, " finally came her frigid tones, " smok- ing always makes me feel sick! " " Do it now, ma ' am? " asked the man as he carefully lighted up. " Then take my advice an ' don ' t smoke.

Months of labor, hours of friendly conference, the joy of working beside students who are interested in seeing a job well done, are all to be brolien because a tasJi has been completed, and it is with a tinge of deep regret that we watch tJie presses gradually grind out the finished copy of the 1926 Annual We feel that we might have done better if we had only — but what ' s the use. The joy in life is not in hav- ing a thing but in the process of getting it. Our worJi is finished and the feeling is not one of joy but rather one of temporary relief. For a while this will satisfy but soon we will grow tired and seek newer fields, thus the wJieels of progress move on. Even as the sun, the rain, and the soil contribute to the success of the harvest, so the photographer, the en- graver and the printer contribute to the success of the book. In their plants are countless numbers of human laborers whose time and thought have made this book possible. To them the Annual Staff is sincerely grateful. With these things in mind we trust that in after years this book may awaken in your mind some memory of days spent in E. H. S., and should this be so then the staff of the 1926 Annual shall realize that their work has not been unrewarded. One Hundred Ninety-nine pnnant i b Annual Two Hundred
