The noble forests which sheltered them, long ago succumbed to the acts of the settler and the clear water of the beautiful St. Joseph instead of reflecting dense forests and painted savages in bark canoes now reflect the tall smokestacks and massive walls of mills and factories in great variety which resound with the hum of industry. It was about the year 1800 when Samuel Bibbens visited the present site of Elkhart. He found only two white men and they were French traders who were temporarily here for barter with the Indians. It was not until 1827 that white men settled on the site of the present city. Early in that year Jesse Rush and Andrew Naffsinger with their families settled on the northwest bank of the St. Joseph in that part of the city now known as Riverside. Early in the year 1831 Dr. Havilah Beardsley coming from Ohio purchased of Pierre Morain, a Potta- watomie chief a square mile of territory. iimniiiiiiii " . ' ■ ! ' iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.iniiiiiii — 5 — SI rnrrn min i m i .llllllllllll llllll: 1 ■ -liTffl D The Old Elkhart High School The first survey for a town site was made for Dr. Beardsley by George Crawford in 1832. The first manufactury was a saw mill erected by John Huntsman. The first house in town was built by Horace Root, the second was built by Samuel Beebe on the corner of Main and Jackson streets. For several years the Post Office bore the name of Pulaski and rceived and dispatched mail once a week. George Crawford was the first Postmaster. In 1836 the village had only 200 inhabitants. Samuel Beebe opened the first mercantile establishment on the site now oc- cupied by the Hotel Bucklen. Other early merchants were Brodrick Defress, Crawford, Davenport and Elijah Beardsley who are almost without exception represented by descendants in or near the city at the present time. The city was given its present name by Dr. Beardsley because of an island at the confluence of the two rivers which resembles the heart of an Elk. iiii ' .imiiiiiiiiiTT iiniiiiiimiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiimiiiiiiiiiiinr — 6 — q i ii iii ii ii iiii ii i ii iii i ii i iii i iiii ii i i ' i i i i i i i i iiiiiiiii iiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiim iniiiiniimiimmm f i Familiar Scenes in Old Elkhart rx ii i i iiiiiiiiiiii i ii i iiiiiiiiiiiiii ii i iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii i i i iiiiii i iiiiii im i mii iii ii i i i iii ii i C 7 — fe lil ' ll ' , ! .

Elkhart early became a railroad center and has remained one. d gggg -i ' iitiii-- ' ;!iiiiinn-imnTTm iiiiiiiiniiniiiiTTm £3- , B = C.G.COKN. Founder of C. G. Conn. Ltd. PROF. WD.THOMAS, H. V,.

A. Jones ' diary Nov. 18, 1970) Today the snow has fallen for the first time this year. The winds howled and the snow flew, but Wife and I and Johnny, that ' s our daughter Mary ' s boy. huddled up around the fire place and spent a pleasant evening nevertheless. Wife and I talked over old times, of our days in and out of school, and of the experiences each had had in teaching school. Some people think a person is growing old quickly when he begins to think of the past, but our review of events that happened when we were young had just the opposite effect with us. Some of my happiest thoughts as I recall my younger life was the remembrance of a class I was sponsor of for four years. On June 22, 1923 a group of boys and girls came into high school and scarcely a one knew what to do with himself or where to go. For about four and a half months they just wandered and wondered. Then there was a vacation of three months and there was no school. When they came back to school the next fall they were called one day to the old gymnasium by Mr. Holdeman, the principal. Mr. Holdeman thought these boys and girls would like to be like the other people in high school. They assured him that they would like to and so they elected officers. The President they elected was George Peckham, and Vice-President — Virginia Burkhardt; Secretary — Clyde Steele. The manager of the money was to be Edwin Compton, and Marva Long was chosen from among several candidates to plan parties for the group. Oh, yes! I was to be their sponsor. Now these boys and girls were organized into a class like the other people in high school were. These officers served faithfully for over four and a half months. The class met again on Feb. 12, 1924 to elect some more officers. George Peckham was re-elected as President, Elloween Jones was elected to help him out as Vice- President; Helen Santord was chosen to keep the secretary book up to date, and Edwin Compton to take care of the money. Howard Godfrey was awarded the job of taking care of the social affairs of the crowd. On Friday, April 4, 1925, about twenty members went to the " Little Theatre ' ' again to enjoy a party planned by Howard. Mr. Osbun, Mr. Noel, Miss Martin and Miss Cunningham and myself chap- eroned the crowd of youngsters. It seems queer that I should remember so many minute details but I can ' t forget how odd Henry DeShone looked when he received the prize for having pinned the tail on the donkey. His prize was a little tiny rabbit. Miss Cunning- ham won a big candy Easter egg for finding the most eggs. Dainty refreshments in keeping with the season were served. At various times throughout the year these people sold candy and various other articles to make money. The next fall after they had had a long vacation they came back to school to elect some more officers. The President this time was Virginia Burkhardt; her assistant was Elloween Jones; Wallace Carlson became official secretary, and Phyllis Stewart was chosen social chairman. Evidently Edwin Compton was a good treasurer or no one else wanted his job because he was again elected treasurer. A Hallowe ' en party was given at Edwin Compton ' s home the week before Hallowe ' en with about fifty persons there. Everybody came in outfits that would make the soberest person laugh. Everything from a beggar to a minister was represented. The Misses King, Estlick, Walls and Burns and Mr. Jones chaperoned the fast growing youngsters. (The Students had a good joke on the faculty that night. I was the only one of the faculty to be let in on the joke. Wish I could see them together some time and then I ' ll tell for the first time that secret.) Two other parties were held that semester but I don ' t remember very much about them. immiiiiiiiiii- .:mrrn 40 swil l " ' .. Illllllll 1 • " " rrrrmn lllllllllllll rrnrrrrm U2 Then on February 4, 1926 they were called to the gym, (it was the new gym this time) and at this time some more officers were elected. By this time these pupils were lB ' s. Phyllis Stewart was elected to pilot the ship this time and had Elloween Jones as the Vice-President. Robert Personett took over the job left by Wallace Carlson. Edwin Compton still had the honor of handling the money. Virginia Burkhardt became social-chairman with a unanimous vote of those present. On April 2, the class met to talk over plans for a party they were going to have. Raymond Van Dusen said that the class orchestra consisting of six members of the class had been practicing twice a week and on Mav 1, they would play for a jitney dance in the gym. On April 25, about 25 members had a skating party at Blosser Park over at Goshen. The crowd left school at 6:30 with Miss King, Miss Estlick and Mr. Noel and Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Stewart as chaperones. Some of the folks fell down but that did not hurt. Aubrey Dunn had the worst time one could possibly imagine trying to keep his feet under him At 9:30 everyone received a box of cracker jack and a lolly pop. Mr. Noel didn ' t like his lolly pop but there wasn ' t any other kind left. Once more we find that these pupils have been in school long enough to give other pupils a chance to hold offices. Edwin Compton no longer had an opportunity to care for the money, for now he has become president of the class. That was on Sept. 18, 1925. Elloween was again elected vice-president; Raymond Van Dusen became secretary and Robert Lowery treasurer. Virginia Burkhardt had served faithfu lly as social chairman and accepted this office again. Because the class needed some money it was decided to elect Phyllis Stewart chairman. The Chairman of the social committee urged every one to be present at the Halloween party at the home of Edwin Compton on the following Thursday night. Then came the memorable party. Every one had to come via the back way up dark stairs and was met at every corner by some ghost or an old witch. One never knew what to expect next. Mr. Milliken, Mr. Anderson, Mr. Heestand. Miss King, Miss Estlick and Miss Kelley chaperoned. The eats consisted of cider, doughnuts, and candy. On January 11, 1925, a meeting was held in room 301 at which time Raymond Van Dusen, Elloween Jones, and Margaret Fetters were appointed to work with the IB class in selecting the Junior Class play. It was decided to have a party with the lB ' s in the future. This party took place in the form of a banquet on Jan. 21, 1926. The banquet was prepared by Mesdames Pancost, Gampher, Burkhardt, Jones, Stewart, Fields, and Delancey. The dinner consisted of chicken and biscuit, mashed potatoes, salad, rolls and ice cream. The Juniors and some teachers danced for a while and then came to the " Little Theatre " . Miss Cunningham, Mr. Sproul and Mr. O ' Hearn showed the students that night that they were not dignified, strict teachers that many had the idea. The program was in the form of a broadcast from station J-U-N-I-O-R at E. H. S. The Peerless Quartet was received with great applause. Miss Cunningham took charge of the games in the gym and everyone had a good time. The chaperones were Mr. and Mrs. Holdeman, Mr. and Mrs. Gill, Miss Flauding, Miss King, Miss Cunningham, Mr. Sproul and Mr. O ' Hearn. Last night I found an old Pennant in an old history book in which I found this article — " Edwin Compton is reelected president of the 1A class. " The other officers were vice-president, Harry Elliot; secretary, Phyllis Stewart; treasurer, Clyde Steele; social chairman, Virginia Burkhardt; chairman of the ways and means committee, Elloween Jones. This group of officers had an unusual lot of responsible work on their hands to do. The Junior play Junior and Senior Prom were the main events. ' You and I " and the lllllllllii ' ■IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIT 41 Qiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiniiiii miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiirra The Day of Days, Prom Day at last. Chicken and everything that goes with it was ours that night. Time passed on and no orchestra and many began to worry. But at last Art Hareon and his jazzmaniacs on deck and everything went smoothly until the balloons came on the floor. I really believe anyone who did not know what was going on would have thought the world was coming to an end for all the noise he could have heard. Favors of all kinds were given the dancers that evening so even Eva and Phyllis thought their day had not been spent in vain. Many of the Seniors declared the Juniors knew how to en- tertain better than they. That made the committee feel better. Vacation again. Most of the pupils liked this time of the year best. School once more and again officers had to be elected. Edwin Compton was elected President again with Virginia Burkhardt as Vice-President. Vern Garst received the secretary book to keep IIA notes. Harry Elliott had the job of collecting dues and paying bills and Phyllis Stewart to plan the parties. These officers were elected on Friday, September 17, 1926. Early that fall the IIA ' s had a skating party over at Blosser ' s Park. They had supper that night too, I believe. Yes, they roasted wieners and toasted marshmallows and had apples and rolls. On Oct. 29 about 75 IA ' s and IIA ' s came to the gym for a real for sure Hallowe ' en party. Each Senior had to bring two pictures as an entrance fee. The entire gym was decorated in Hallowe ' en colors and the students and faculty came masked. Surely that night made one think of all the Saints. The class prophecy was enacted and caused much mirth. At the grand finale this group, somewhat smaller in number, met in the " Little Theatre " for one grand banquet. There were some fifty there and such a fine time. As we entered the dining room large Christmas candles were burning. Each one had a grand scramble to find his place (each person had a pretty little place card) and everyone found his place but Dale Teeters. He declared that he looked everywhere for his place card except beside the teacher and he was afraid to look there. But oh, such eats. It was a three course dinner; fruit cocktail for the first course; creamed chicken, biscuit, mashed potatoes, string beans, fluff salad, olives and hot rolls for the second. Last, but not least, came the ice cream and sunshine cake. That cateress could surely cook. Then Virginia Burkhardt took charge of affairs as toastmaster. The theme for the toasts was ships. Mr. Holdeman was to have been the admiral but he was unable to attend so all the rest of us who made speeches paid a tribute to him anyhow. Then let me think, Oh yes! I was captain. I talked about what all happened my first year in that school. I shall never forget that first year in school. I became the sponsor the first year I was there. Edwin Compton, as Pilot made a nice speec h too. Elloween Jones as first-mate got so happy she had to yell. Harry Elliott gave his toast as a member of the crew. After the dinner the dignified seniors went up to the track and played Bunco. The prizes were awarded to Mr. and Mrs. Baker, Virginia Burkhardt and Miss Estlick. (The latter received the boys ' prize). Almost all of the group then went to the gym to dance to the music of the " Hoosier Merry Makers. " Santa visited that night with gifts for certain members of the class. Nearly all the members danced and everyone went home declaring the banquet the most successful affair of the entire year. Scarcely anything more happened in this group until January 6, 1927, when the last big day of the semester came around — Senior Class Day. The girls dressed up in their Sunday Best — and the boys — I don ' t believe any group of boys looked as nice as they — strutted around the building with a beautiful corsage of sweet peas and baby breath decorated with little fine ferns. A comic presentation of our four successful school years was rehearsed by members of the Class at as- sembly that afternoon, planned the fourth period that morning. Oh my, I ' m so sleepy. I wonder what that group is doing tonight. S3 .riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ' iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiniiiiinimiiiiiiu p i January Class Prophecy Land ahoy! Towers in sight! First, we saw the Statue of Liberty then the lofty skyscrapers of New York. " America at last! " we said simultaneously. " Our own dear United States is the best place after all, isn ' t it, Phyllis? " " Merry England and the sunny fields of France are all right to travel through but America seems much more like home. " iany thin g s lave chant ?d du ring our years absence, remar ked " I wonder if Phyllis. " One never can tell, " I answered. As delighted as we were to land, yet we regretted leaving the good ship, ' Homeward Bound ' , with her worthy captain. Dale Teeters, a member of our own graduating class in ' 27. As guests of the Captain ' s table, we had enjoyed jolly good times — never to be forgotten. Our first newspaper, after we landed, chanced to be ' The New York Sun " . As we glanced over the columns our eyes fell on a heading. ' Gerald G. Miller is New Editor of the Sun ' . After much discussing and recalling, we concluded that this must be our own Gerald Miller, Business Manager of our Annual of ' 27. The first evening upon our return was spent at a musical comedy, where we discovered that Fannie Foster, and Helen Daugherty were chorus girls in a troupe of ladies directed by Harry Elliot, all of whom were also, graduates of ' 27. " By the way " , said Phyllis, " did you recognize the lady who was in charge of our hotel, ' The Martha Washington ' ? " ' No, " I answered, " I didn ' t. " ' I believe it is Erma LeCount, also of our dear old high school class, " she When we returned to the hotel, we found it was she. Our stay in New York was not long for the next day we took the 11:10 passenger plane, piloted by Clyde Steele, for Buffalo, where we were to make an extended visit with Mr. and Mrs. Howard Johnson having been Lucile Dunn of former days. We arrived in due time, with a hearty dinner awaiting us. Phyllis and I soon related the pleasures of our trip to Howard and Lucile but our thoughts gradually turned to our school days in E. H. S., fifteen years ago. Lucile informed us of some of the graduates in our class of whom we had not heard. " Donald Kintzel, " she said, " has become a wealthy ten-cent store magnate residing on Long Island. " Juanita Benton and Guy Losee are happily married and are living in Miami, Florida, the city which was damaged so, by a hurricane the fall when we were seniors: Do you remember it? " " Yes I do. " " Tracy Garda is private secretary to Edwin Compton, the president of the Compton Motor Corporation. You recall too, that he was our capable class presi- dent while we were Juniors and Seniors? Emma Blessing and Lois Mangold are commercial teachers in high schools at Cleveland. " At this, I interrupted, " Donna Gardner is also teaching in a Denver school, and Ruth J. Miller is art director in the city schools of our own home town. " " Too " I said, " while we were in Paris we met Vern Garst who is becoming famous as a great sculptor. — 43 c ili! iMnilll! ' " - ' r ' ihllUllr ' illllllllllimiliUl.ii: .-- Lucile remarked. " Harry Markey, another of our class, took part in the Olympic Games this year. He was one of our good track men, wasn ' t he? And Ruth Stickler is secretary to her father in his Chicago office. Clark Dougherty, one of the blue and white avalanche men, is coaching football at the University of California. His team is a remarkable one for it has been champion for the last eight successive years. " Wallace Carlson is head of the Hertz Pilot-ur-Self Airplane Co. in Elkhart and George Menges is practicing dentistry in the same place, we informed her. We enjoyed the first evening with them listening in on Johnson ' s radio, the latest out, a ten tube Hydrophobidyne set . The first we received was station WACO broadcasting from Wawasee Lake, Indiana, from the Godfrey and Crow Casino, which has won world-wide fame as a great radio station. Frederick Blessing and his Moonlight Serenaders furnished dance music for the entire evening. " Seems to me, " said Phyllis, " that this must be the Fred Blessing who was in our class, too. Is it he? " " Yes, it is, " replied Lucile, " During the last year he has become the best known dance and orchestra leader in the country . Oh yes! and last week we heard Margaret Fetters give several violin numbers from the station COD at Portland, Ore. " This reminded me to ask what had become of Aubrey Dunn since graduation. Howard broke in, " Aubrey has a great knowledge of electricity and is working in the General Electric works at Schenectady. He is considered the marvel electrical wizard of today, as was Steimetz, twenty years ago. " Our visit with the Johnsons was exceedingly pleasant but all too soon we had to leave for home. The first evening upon our arrival in Elkhart we received a telephone call from Bob Chandler asking us to rush over to his house as soon as possible! We could not imagine what had happened. Alas! and behold! what did we find but a reunion in progress of all resident members of the class of ' 27 with Virginia Burkhardt as the guest of honor. She was home on her first vacation from her missionary duties in China. After exchanging fond embraces we all quieted down to listen to her many experiences. One, especially, which she told so excitingly, was about the thrilling time she had being chased by a vicious armed, chinaman. How relieved we all were that she had escaped injury, having been rescued by a gallant American tourist, Robert Scarlett. Then she told of her meeting with two of the absent classmates, Helen Smith and Carol Markel who had married naval officers and were living in Honolulu. Tales of our journey followed. Over the banquet table came more reminiscenses of the classmates and of our many good times we had had together in the old days of E. H. S. A toast was given to the success of our class brought about by the high ideals and the persistent efforts of our teachers who are remembered through the years with love and gratitude. Were we older? yes, by fifteen years. Were we changed? Not one bit, for we still en- joyed the same, good, old, hilarious times. ■: ii I.: il ■■ i. ' i. ), ' ' :.

H. S., broken in body and spirit hope that our decay- ing remains will be buried with due respect and dignity in the skull orchard beside the river. We, in leaving give to you what we may and what will be of use to your most unintelligent beings, and we, humble as we are, give to you all that we don ' t take with us. To Wilbur " Buck " Jones, our beloved sponsor, we will two cap guns to aid him in throwing the " bull " ! To our faculty, whom we have so much appreciated during our four years we will our abnormal intellectual qualities to aid them in enlightening the freshies. Aubrey Dunn wills to Wayne Howard his ability to expostulate andl his excess length so Wayne will cease to be looked down upon. To " Rosebud " Bar ger, Junior Crow unselfishly gives a dozen bananas so Conrad may slip thru school on the peels without a pension. Harry Elliott sez: " I ' ll give Jimmy Neale some fertilizer so he can grow into a blooming idiot! " (A lad after me own makin ' ). To Millicent Bitters, Virginia Burkhardt wills her ability to make speeches, so that E. H. S. may boast a second Patrick Henry. Bob Winslow wills to the important undergrads his unusual ability to over- step his four year sentence in school so that the school may benefit by their pro- longed visit. Lucille Dunn says she hasn ' t a thing to give unless some kind soul would deprive her of her beautiful golden tresses. Ed Compton wills his theory that " applesauce makes the world go ' round " and his Paderewskian ability to whom it may concern. To Ruth Dennison, Phyliss Stewart wills her unusual gift of yodeling and making toot-prints in the sands of time. To " Dinny " Meeker, Elloween Jones wills her dramatic ability and may Shakespeare quake in his grave. Esther Schultz wills to Ray Sykes (our future Chief of Police), a map by which he may clean up the town. Vern Garst, the mental genius, gives to Hazel Bright his intellectual powers so Hazel may become Bright by name and bright by nature. John Miller wills to Bobby Hayworth a cow-bell so that little Robert may not mysteriously disappear amid the shufHle of the halls. To Carroll Ball, George Menges wills his vocal ability. (Guide that gift Carroll, it ' s your chance of a lifetime.) I, Bob Chandler, will to the Juniors my big feet so they may have a sufficient " understanding " of the difficulties of graduating. This sad and pathetic instrument made and declared legal this month of January in 27th year after the beginning of the 20th century. In witness whereoof, I have hereunto set my hand and our seal this day and year above mentioned. iiiiiiiiiiim iiiiiiiiiniiiiiif d 3 =1 | 45 a i ' iiiiiiiii ' iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuniinHn E June Class of 1927 Class Colors — Coral and Lavender.

H. S. Territory, a land unkno wn to them but, nevertheless, very alluring. During the first half year every colonist worked hard, making friends with the Algebraic, French, History, and Latin Forces, exploring new lands and building his cabin of recogni- tion. On March 2, 1924, we joined with our fellow settlers in an organized colony. Fortunately we enjoyed self-government from the first, and the only requirement for membership was four acres of land. (4 credits). By a majority vote of all colonists present, Mr. John O ' Hearn was made the reverend Elder of our promising colony. To all our future undertakings Elder O ' Hearn pledged his loyal support. At the same meeting we chose Madonna Farren for our first Governor and John Holdeman for our Lieutenant-Governor. Lillian Mahn became our Scribe and Mary Winterhoff our Tax Collector. Of course our colony had to have some good times, so Hazel Dougherty was put in charge of all social activities. The colonists met regularly to discuss matters of common interest and soon we had formed a constitution and chosen our colors and flower. Although by this time every loyal colonist had paid his taxes, it was thought that we needed to earn more money. Therefore various members met in serious council and soon the Mock Trial to be given by the Colonists was a topic of conversation not only in our own colony but over the entire E. H. S. Territory. (At the appointed time, a great number of eager colonists assembled to hear the case of Miss Misfortune vs. Mr. I. M. Dumb, tried in the court presided over by the Honorable Boob McNutt.) Now we began to add social activities to our work and the first great event was a " Kid Party. " Our Puritan maidens were there with shortened skirts and wearing big bows on their hair while our John Aldens, sturdy lads, donned short trousers for the occasion. Even Elder O ' Hearn dropped his dignity and joined us. In the latter part of May a group of thankful colonists spent an en- tire day at Christiana Lake. We were thankful for having escaped with so few deaths from the exams which had invaded our colony with their deadly French, Geometric and English powders. In the following Fall we reorganized our colony. Vernon Pancost became our second Governor and Joe Vetter our Lieutenant-Governor. Louis Losee was made our new Scribe, Raymond Gregg our Tax Collector and Hazel Dougher- ty was again given charge of the social functions. Our growing and prosperous colony celebrated " All Saint ' s Eve " with much feasting and merry making. Joe Moore, a colored boy from the south, entertained us and it was said that all the " John Aldens " lost their hearts to a beautiful maiden who when masked proved to be Esquire Sillon. We feasted royally on candy, popcorn and pumpkin pies which our Honorable Scribe deemed " personal " pumpkin pies. To enrich our general fund we now planned for two entertainments, The Burglar and the Afflicted Man. In this many of our winsome maidens and sturdy lads showed promising talent. In January, Farmer Day fixed up three bob sleighs and our colonists along with those of a neighboring colony set out through the snow to a little cabin in the woods. It ' s true on the way home one of the sleighs did break down and its occupants had to walk back, but that did not disturb our sturdy puritans. IHIIIllllllllllllllllllllllltllllllllllllllllHlllllllHII,!lllll — 73 — mi urn 11 iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiimiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiinmiHiiiiiiii Then, as was our custom, we elected new officers for the latter part of the year. They were: Governor, Mary Winterhoff; Lieutenant-Governor, Margaret Helfrick; Scribe, Cleo Barrett; Tax Collector, Dorothy Pancost; and Social Chairman, Louis Globensky. As Easter time approached, our Puritan maidens worked for days preparing good things for a feast to be given for all the colonists. After we had feasted, Elder O ' Hearn, Miss Flauding, and Adeline Horwich, in grave and serious discussion proved to Mr. McCracken, Mary Rowe, and Isabelle Sanders that our cabins burn down instead of up. The loving " tin " cup was, with the consent of all, given to our honorable Elder who proved his belief by most solemnly quoting from the Holy Scriptures. After our summer months of inactivity as a colony, we chose Mary Winter- hoff as our Governor; Kenneth Fogel our Lieutenant-Governor; Raymond Soren- son our Scribe; Robert Lockton our Tax Collector and Phyllis Gampher our Social Chairman. In the early part of October we went to a nearby forest, built a fire and roasted fresh meat for our supper. Afterwards Daniel Policoff and Jim Whitney showed great talent at fancy skating. In another gathering in Jan- uary, Dale Teeters proved to be a model gold digger. In February our next election was held with these results: Governor, John Holdeman; Lieutenant-Governor, Mary Winterhoff; Scribe, Raymond Sorenson; Tax Collector, Phyllis Gampher; Social Chairman, Madonna Farren. On April 23, our seven hundred colonists were delighted with a play " You and I " given by the 11B and 1A colonists. It was rumored that " You and I " was one of the best plays ever given in E. H. S. Territory. Again we planned to roast our supper in the forest. At the last minute the meat, which we had prepared, could not be found. However this did not mar our good time as Elder O ' Hearn with a few of our sturdy lads set out through the forest and soon returned with a fresh supply of meat. Just before the end of our third year in E. H. S. Territory we gave a Prom in honor of an older colony who was about to leave us. For the following year our Governor was Raymond Sorenson; Lieutenant- Governor, Madonna Farren; Scribe, Lillian Mahn; Tax Collector, Phyllis Gam- pher; Social Chairman, Dorothy Pancost. In October, two nights before All Saints ' Eve, the 1A and 11A colonists gathered in the Gym which had been decked in a new crepe dress of black and yellow for the occasion. Now, having spent nearly four years in E .H. S. Territory, our colonists feel that they are now able to stand upon their own feet and so will soon withdraw from the helpful and happy union of E. H. S. As I pen these facts, I can see many future activities in store for us during the remainder of this year in celebra- tion of our withdrawal. And now, we, the Representatives of the June Colony of ' 27 in these records asse mbled, appealing to the good judgment of our fellow colonists for the rec- titude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of The Good People of this Colony regretfully publish, and declare, that these June Colonists of ' 27 are, and of a Right ought to be, Free and Independent Graduates. And for the support of this Declaration, we, the youngest of the Alumni, pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our loyal Fellowship. iniiiniiiiiniiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiTTTT — 74 — E iiiiiiiiiiin iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiirn ihiiiiiiiiii THE DAILY MIRROR Vol. 13 Elkhart. Ind.. Nov. 3. 1944. Member or the disunited press 3 O ' CLOCK EDITION HOLDEMAN- ELECTED HOLDEMAN ELECTED PRESI- DENT OF THE UNITED STATES Elkhartan Next Resident of the White House First Woman Candidate Defeated Associated Press, Wash. D. C. Nov. 3. The result of yesterday ' s presidential election shows the closest margin in the history of the nation ' s election of its chief executive. The former governor of I ndiana. Holde- man. the G. O. P. champion is vic- torious with a vote of 266 to his feminine competitor ' s 265 votes. Another oddity of this year ' s election is that the president-elect and Miss Phyllis Gampher. his Democratic opponent, were former schoolmates and both graduated from the High School of Elkhart. Indiana, in 1927. Miss Gampher. who last year won nation wide fame by stuffing an um- brella down the throat of Representa- tive James Whitney of Indiana when he criticized a bill which Represen- tative Gampher wanted passed, re- fuses to comment on the outcome of the election. She remains in se- clusion writing her book on Darwin ' s theory utilizing her observations while in High School. Mr. Holdeman, who as governor of Indiana waged incessant warfare upon the various criminal elements in that state, practically exterminat- ing the bootlegging and gang organi- zations, declared that as president he will embark upon a nation wide crime war following his Indiana plan. HIGH SCHOOL INSTALLS NEW FIRE ESCAPES Principal Robert Proctor of the High School recently invented and had installed in the High School building, slides leading from the various rooms to the outside, to be used as fire escapes. Yesterday af- ternoon the project was given its first trial. School will be closed until Tuesday to allow the students to regain consciousness and their other personal effects.

Mr. John O ' Hearn, the elderly patient, before the operation was crippled with rheumatism and was blind in one eye. He called on Dr. Barrett, begging her in some way to relieve him. Dr. Barrett decided to risk the brain operation and now. due to its miraculous powers. Mr. O ' Hearn is a vigorous young man devoid of any symptoms of rheumatism or blind- ness. EXTENSIVE ILLICIT LIQUOR TRAFFIC UNCOVERED Deputy Sheriff Geraldine Olson assisted by officers Evelyn McFadden and Eleanor Reynolds of the city police force, last evening captured one of the largest bootlegging gangs ever captured in Indiana. Three stills, five hundred gallons of moon- shine, and several barrels of mash were confiscated and approximately fifty bottles of liquor had been broken before the officers gained entrance. The offenders, said to be connected with a large organization in Canada, are being held in the county jail at Goshen. FORMER ELKHART GIRL MAKES SPECTACULAR SWIM- MING RECORD Dover, England. Nov. I.

Editorial HOW TO RAISE MONEY The auestion of raising money is one of the most outstanding in im- portance to churches and other or- ganizations in which money is neces- sary to the furtherance of their various causes. Paper money is more easily raised than silver, but either is usable. By placing the money on the palm of the hand and slowly moving the hand upward, any a- mount may be raised. However a block, and tackle is helpful when raising an extremely large amount of money. SOCIETY Farren-Drake Nuptials The union in marriage of Miss Madonna Farren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Farren. of 223 Manor Avenue, and Mr. Ted Drake also of the city, is one of the most out- standing events in this season s society program. Miss Farren an accomplished violinist, and Mr. Drake , a city traffic policeman, are both well known in Elkhart as well as in the surrounding cities. The impressive ceremony was solemnized in the basement of the new home which Mr. Drake has prepared on Harrison Street for his bride. The furnace, which served as the background for the pretty affair, was covered with corn stalks and cabbage leaves, entwined with beet tops. The bride wore a lovely orange burlap gown, trimmed in red cro- cheted lace over which was grace- fully draped a green canvas bridal veil. A colonial boquet of cauliflowers and skunk cabbage, and red galoshes completed Miss Farrens striking attire. The groom wore a green muslin tuxedo and pink rubber boots each of which had a lovely carrot painted on the toe. The bridesmaids. Miss Margaret Fields and Miss Susan Rust were attired in brown buckskin gowns and green pic ture hats. Miss Farren on the arm of her father and Mr- Drake accompanied by his best man, Mr. Stanley Mon- teith, met at the altar where the Rev. John Kensil read the marriage vows, while Miss Inez Shriener softly played " Yes we have no bananas on the organ. Mr. and Mrs. Drake after an ex- tended journey to Jamestown, will be at home in their new Harrison Street residence. Entertains At Bridge Miss Mary Rowe, the society belle of the city, entertained at bridge last evening in her new home on Greenieaf Blvd. The event was staged in Miss Rowe ' s spacious con- servatory which was fittingly decor- ated. The red and yellow streamers which festooned the tables formed a striking contrast to the pea green lattices which supported Miss Rowe ' s famous squashes and lima beans. Dainty refreshments consisting of ice cream, dill pickles and tooth- picks were served by the hostess. Bridge honors were won by Anna Coll- ins, Bernita Mast and Carol Markel. The Bachelors ' Club The weekly meeting of the Bach- elors ' Club was held in Bachelors ' Hall last evening at 7:30 with thir- teen members present at the com- bined business and social meeting.

S ' s. dreams of a new Trophy case are still unrealized, but anyway, a Trophy case could do no more than " gild the lily " for E. H. S ' s. Trophies are the kind that would look good and mean a great deal if they were to be kept in the alley. In the office and scattered through the halls are 13 Trophies, 4 of which represent State Athletic Championships. We wonder if the students have thought these trophies deserving of more than the casual " once-over " . We doubt it. That is why they have been given this space in your book. Most of these trophies have been given to us for athletics but that does not mean that we excell only in that branch of school activities because there are more cups given for athletics than for other things. A loving cup was presented to E. H. S. by the Rah! Rah! Girls. On this cup are engraved the names of state championship teams since 1924. The names on the cup are Mile Relay ' 24 and Football ' 24. There is a cup bearing the names of individual state champions. These names are: R. Stahr, Basketball, ' 16; M. Evans, 440, ' 21; O. Keene, 440, ' 24; C. Peterson, Football, ' 24; J. Delinger, Football, ' 24; V. Martin, Football, ' 24; D. Teeters, 880, ' 24. The mile relay team in ' 24 won a cup at the state meet. The cup was pre- sented by I. H. S. A . A. The names of the men who made up the team are: Ober Keene, Dale Teeters, Wm. Miller, and Mason Evans. Elkhart won the Goshen Relays in ' 26 and we have a very pretty cup to prove it, too. Our Mile Relay Team stepped out and won at the St. Joseph Valley meet in ' 26. Elkhart tries to be hospitable to visiting opponents, but when it comes to letting them win track meets that Elkhart herself sponsors she draws the line; so we have a cup to show that we won the Elkhart Hexagonal meet in ' 21 and another for winning the Half Mile Relav in the same meet. Both cups are inscribed with the names: E. Anderson, M. Evans, H. Schacht, E. Brown. There are plaques in the halls that represent: State Champion Mile Relay Team, ' 26; Northern Indiana Athletic and Oratorical League in 1910, and one for the same affair in 1911; and one for St. Joe Valley Tennis Tourney, ' 26. We won the cup given by the Y. M. C. A. for having the largest and best Bible Study Class in 1924. In 1912 the Class of 1910 presented E. H. S. with a cup and said that it was to bear the names of E. H. S. orators. The names are: Dorcas Dyer, ' 11; Mar- gerite Wilson ' 12; Marie Burhans ' 13; Millard Flemming ' 14; Lora C. Ziesel ' 15; Gladys McClintick ' 16; Elizabeth Jane Stahr ' 17; Christmas Carol Miller ' 18; Norman Hostettler ' 19; Helen Grace Carpenter ' 20; Lois Elizabeth Fleming ' 21; Inez Pearl Hood ' 22; Inez Elinor Levin ' 23; Ruth Grootveld ' 24, ' 25, and ' 26.

THE 1926 SEASON Coach Boone had only two lettermen around which to build a team this year. The team would undoubtedly be green and Elkhart fans were rather pessimistic. Gordie Johnson, quite capable at either end or halfback, and Lockton, an end, were the two lettermen from last year ' s squad. However Dougherty. Gerald Johnson, Forney, and Losee, had gained valuable experience the previous year as members of the second team. There were several who had shown varsity calibre in the spring practice and who were expected to fill the vacancies left by the many regulars who had graduated. Under the able direction of Coach Boone, who was splendidly assisted bv Everette Weybright. a team, of which Elkhart may be justlv proud, was put in the field. Seven games were played and five were victories. Elkhart lost to Goshen and Mishawaka. The defeat at the hands of Goshen, while a bitter remembrance, was undoubtedly quite atoned for by the splendid showing made against Mishawaka the following week. Two men were awarded all-state positions by an Indianapolis sports writer. Hoffman was awarded a halfback berth on the third team and Danielson was placed at guard on the same team. mn TTTTT1 HlllllltHIIIIITTTTT cm T T — 95 — gram I ■MlllfTTTITTTn HHIIi ' i ' ' mmm I ' mimnmuiTT SENIORS 1926 Up and down, left to right: Carrol Danielson, Guy Losee, Homer Brown, George Pe Whitney, Edgar Gor don.

THE KENDALLVILLE GAME Displaying a brand of football that was rather unusual for the first game of the season. Elkhart ' s supposedly green team handed the Kendallville aggregation a severe trouncing in a game that was unexpectedly pleasing to the host of Elkhart fans who assembled at Rice Field to see just how well Elkhart was to be represented on the gridiron this fall. Elkhart kicked off to Kendallville but secured the ball by recovering a fumble on the third play. Then started a drive that netted a touchdown when Johnson plunged over after but eleven plays. The Blue Team soon scored again when Dougherty booted a beautiful field goal from the 35 yard line. Shortly before the half ended Danielson recovered an enemy fumble placing Elkhart in a posi- tion to score its second touchdown. Gaining confidence with every play the Blue Team rushed goalward and over five times in the second half and might have boosted the total still more had they not been relieved by the seconds, who, although prevented from scoring by costly fumbles, more than held their own with the visitors until the end of the game. The work of Gordie Johnson, Dougherty. Hoffman, Lockton, and Danielson was outstanding. The final score was 47 to 0.

THE WARSAW GAME Backed by the confidence and experience gained from the Kendallville en- counter, the Blue Team, displaying a stronger line and a smoother working back- field, experienced little difficulty in downing Warsaw, 53 to 0. Elkhart scored soon after the kickoff, and with Hoffman, Johnson, and Dougherty reeling off brilliant runs around the ends and through the gapping holes opened for them through the splendid work of the line, seven more touch- downs were accounted for before the regulars were withdrawn from the fray to allow the seconds, and even thirds, to show what they could do if given a chance. THE PLYMOUTH GAME Although somewhat handicapped by the soggy condition of the field, and sur- prised by the stubborn defense of the home team; Elkhart fought her way to the goal line three times to subdue the Pilgrims, 21 to 6. Elkhart kicked off to Plymouth but soon obtained the ball when the Pilgrims punted. The Blue Team then started a drive straight down the field and made a touchdown. Dougherty kicked goal. Plymouth came back with a determined passing attack that baffled the Elkhart team and netted a touchdown. Not to be outdone, the Blue Warriors launched a passing attack of their own. Gordie Johnson grabbed a pretty one and sprinted 70 yards through a broken field for Elkhart ' s second touchdown. The third touchdown was also the result of accurate passing varied with a little running by Hoffman, Dougherty, and Johnson. ll.

THE HOWE GAME This year Howe was represented by a team that was far superior to the teams that Elkhart has been accustomed to meeting from the Cadet school. This year ' s game had more than its share of thrills and only after a desperate rally in the second half was Elkhart able to down the fighting cadets. Howe scored after only three minutes of play, when Capt. Metz stood on the Elkhart 40 yd. line and sent a pretty dropkick between the uprights. Elkhart re- ceived the following kickoff but failed to make the required yardage. Howe took the ball and advanced it to the 5 yd. line in two plays totaling nearly 45 yards. From there it was but a matter of seconds until Elkhart found herself on the short end of a 9 to score. It was a determined Elkhart team that took the field for the last half. With a varied attack the Blue advanced the ball to the 13 yd. line where a place kick by Dougherty failed. Elkhart soon obtained possession of the ball again and with Hoffman and Dougherty carrying the ball, 35 yds. were soon accounted for. A touchdown followed after about three plays. The score now stood 9 to 7. The fourth quarter saw Elkhart twice prevented from scoring by costly fumbles and penalties, and determined defensive work on the part of the Cadets. Things looked bad, with but little more than five minutes to go, until Dale Hoffman, standing on the Howe 55 yd. line, received a punt and streaked down the sideline and across the goal for the second and winning touchdown. The remaining minutes were breathless ones for Elkhartans, for the Cadets twice forced their way inside the Elkhart 20 yd. line via the air. The final score was 14 to 9. lll l ll ll l l l l lhl ll lll l l lll l Ml l l ll l lllllllllllllll ll lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllliiiiil i i iii i iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii i u THE FORT WAYNE GAME Fort Wayne Central came with what they thought was the best chance in years to defeat the Big Blue Team. But they were surprised. The Big Blue Team played brilliant football and trounced the would-be-avengers 34 to 0. The performance of the team was very commendable. Every man played well, doing his part to make the broken-field running of the fleet footed Hoffman as brilliant as it was. Elkhart kicked off to Ft. Wayne. The ball changed hands several times on punts. Hoffman got loose on several brilliant runs but Elkhart was unable to score in the first quarter. The first touchdown came early in the second quarter when Hoffman dashed 24 yards to the 3 yd. line, from which Dougherty plunged across. With Hoffman again carrying the ball behind splendid interference the pigskin was advanced into scoring territory and 6 more points were soon added to the total which now stood 10 to 0. Elkhart soon obtained possession of the ball after the start of the half, and the goalward march was resumed. With Hoffman and Dougherty carrying the ball another touchdown was made. The Blue Team did not score again until the final quarter. A short pass, another excursion by Hoffman, and a plunge by Dougherty accounting for the fourth touchdown. The final scoring came near the end of the game. Dougherty plunged over after two beautiful runs by Hoffman had placed the ball on the 3 yd. line. THE GOSHEN GAME Goshen was represented by a team this year that was thoroughly seasoned, they had won and they had lost. Their spirit was high and it was a determined team that took the field against Elkhart that afternoon, a team to which all respect is due. Elkhart was defeated. No alibi will be offered. Both teams battled more or less evenly in the first quarter. Goshen had an edge on the punting that stood them to good advantage. Elkhart was unable to gain with any consistency. Goshen scored a touchdown in the second quarter on a break. A costly Elkhart fumble was scooped up by Warstler, the speedy Crimson back, who ran to the 3 yd. line before being downed. The Blue line braced and resisted the attack for three downs but crumpled on the fourth and the ball was carried over. The Big Blue Team was expected to come out of their slump and stage a comeback in the second half. True, they did fight harder but to no avail. In the third quarter Tully of Goshen, made a field goal from the 35 yd. line. The score now stood 10 to 0. The fourth quarter was a repetition of the first and the game ended with no further scoring. THE MISHAWAKA GAME Mishawaka tied for the state championship this year. Their team was superior to the one that so severely trounced the Blue and White the year before and another overwhelming defeat was looked to from the Cavemen. Elkhart did lose but the defeat was far from overwhelming. Both teams averaged nearly the same yardage on runs, passes, and punts and the Blue Team showed that they were capable of playing better football than they had the week before. In the first quarter both teams relied on straight football and played safe, usually punting on the third down. In the second quarter an Elkhart punt was blocked and recovered by the Cavemen. Several passes and runs advanced the ball to the 4 yd. line where Krieder plunged over. Rogers kicked goal. Mishawaka scored again in the third quarter on a long pass to Doyle over the goal line. Rogers again kicked goal. The score: Mishawaka 14, Elkhart 0. Elkhart was aroused and playing straight football took the ball 60 yds. down the field for a touchdown. Dougherty, who made the touchdown and point after uchdown, and Hoffman and Johnson were the ball carriers. The game ended. ' ■ 1|4 to 7 in favor of Mishawaka. — 3 — 100 i ' : ' ...

The Blue and White opened the season with a fast and furious game with the LaPorte Slicers. The game was ever in doubt, but ended 31 to 29, with Elkhart on the long end of the score. The next night the scrappy Blue quintet met the strong seasoned Nappanee team, but lost out in the last few minutes of an over- time game, 21-17. Bristol, the next opponent, held the advantage until the second half, when the Bratton ' s Blues opened up and came out on top, 51-22. The following Friday night Elkhart met New Paris, with one of the best teams in years. The Parisians proved to be no slouches and Elkhart won 39-27, only after a hard struggle. Brazil, one of the southern fives, was the next victim of the spirited Blue team which piled up 30 points while the downstaters were getting 15. The following Tuesday, Waite High of Toledo met the Elkhart five, which held the advantage until near the end of the game when Waite converted the Blue team ' s attempt to stall into an offensive that netted five baskets and the game, 33-27. Another downstate five. Alexandria, failed to show much and fell before the Blue quintet, 43-24. Then Nappanee made it two when they handed the blue and white a stinging, 27-13 defeat in the small Nappanee gym. Next came Plymouth. Elkhart played listlessly until the last five minutes when a rally brought the score to 33-25. The next night Elkhart came out of its slump to administer a 30 to 24 defeat to Warsaw. Then the big Maroon team from Mishawaka, with its highly touted offense functioning right experienced little difficulty in downing the fight- ing Blue team, 34 to 23. Kendallville followed, and they won 25-24 after a des- perate rally by the Blue had netted five points in the closing minutes of the fray. Elkhart made it two from LaPorte, when, playing in a complete reversal of form, the team subdued the Slicers 39-34. South Bend was next, and although Elkhart played well and led most of the way, the Benders rally proved too much and they won, 36-25. Playing true to its Saturday night form, the Blues next overcame Auburn 33-24 in a well-played game. Then Elkhart met the Crimson f Goshen, and lost 30-17, in a rough and fast game. The following night Milforc I fell before the furious last half offensive drive of the Blue team, 24-20.

Determined to make a showing against the undefeated Froebel (Gary) team, the Blue team played as good a game as they had all season and succeeded in holding the Blue Devils to a 32-19 victory. The next night Elkhart exhibited the same fight as they had the night before and playing a superior brand of basketball rounded out the scheduled season with a 39-31, victory over South Bend.

In fact our track record compares very favorably with the enviable record established by our foot- ball teams of the past few years. As yet Elkhart ' s record on Rice Field is unsullied. Elkhart has never been defeated on Rice Field. Track boasts of more star individuals than any other sport. Each year there have been men who have won the coveted star by virtue of their performances at the state meet. This year was no exception. Teeters, for the second time, won a star by a victory in the half mile. He was also a member of the winning mile relay team. The other members of the mile relay team, Yoder, Steele, and Trautman, were also awarded stars, boosting the total of all state men in track to seven. MICHIGAN INVITATIONAL Although competing against the best that Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio had to offer, Elkhart made a splendid showing in the second annual Michigan Inter- scholastic track and field meet. Teeters placed second in the half mile after forcing Burson of Waite High, Toledo, to a new meet record. Markey finished third in the mile and Steele fourth in the quarter to boost Elkhart ' s total to 6 points. Elkhart tied for fifth place with Highland Park and Waite High. NORTHWESTERN MEET Through the efforts of Capt. Dale Teeters, star half miler, who placed third in this event, Elkhart secured a tie for tenth place with Emerson of Gary and Rockford, 111., in the fourth annual Northwestern Interscholastic track and field meet. Markey took fourth place in his section of the mile. STATE MEET Thirteen men qualified to take part in the State Meet. Capt. Teeters finished first in the half mile in excellent time. Yoder, although boxed three times, fought his way to a close second in the quarter mile. The mile relay team, Yoder, Traut- man, Teeters, and Steele finished first in its section, after a thrilling race with Kokomo. The meet was won by Kokomo, for the second time in as many years. 105 TRACK LETTERMEN 1926 Neale, student representative. First Row: Piatt, Denz, C. Ball, Capt. Teeters, Yoder, Trautman, Markey.

Johnson, Coach Miller, Wallace, Olson. TENNIS SEASON Tennis has never had a very enthusiastic following in E. H. S. The general lack of interest in this sport may be due to the fact that few realize the calibre of the teams that have represented Elkhart on the courts for the last few years. Our team has made an enviable record. Nine of the ten matches played were victories for E .H. S. The only defeat, at the hands of South Bend, was later avenged in the return match. Sorenson was the star of the team, and through his splendid performances was given all-western ratings in both the singles and doubles. Wallace, Olson, and Johnson were the other singles aces and in the doubles the afore-mentioned and Crawford represented E. H. S. Mr. Miller was coach and manager. The Spring singles tournament was won by Crawford; the Fall singles tourna- ment by Ernie Johnson, and the Fall doubles championship by Sorenson and Neale.

S. has been represented by a wrestling team. This sport which is to occupy a permanent place in Elkhart High School athletics, has already proved popular and will undoubtedly rank favorably with our other sports. Elkhart ' s first opponent was the veteran Wabash team, which secured six pinfalls and three decisions from the wholly inexperienced Elkhart team. Elkhart got one pinfall, this by Wright in the 115 pound class, who accounted for Elkhart ' s 10 points. Wabash scored 78 points. Strengthened with the valuable experience gained in the first encounter E. H. S. next met LaPorte and showed much improvement. In the heavyweight class Dougherty won a decision. Virgil in the 175 pound class secured a pinfall. LaPorte scored 5 pinfalls and 3 decisions, giving them 68 points to Elkhart ' s 16. With four weeks training and the experience of two meets, Elkhart entered the state meet at Indiana University and placed sixth with 5 points, in a field of fifteen entries. Raber scored 4 points with a second in the 165 pound class. Dougherty took third place in the heavyweight class for 1 point. The season closed with the L. I. H. S. Conference Championship Meet at Michigan City. E. H. S. tied for third with LaPorte with 26 points. Dougherty won the championship of the 175 pound class with a pinfall. Blessing, Chaffee, and Raber each took second in the 108 pound, 125 pound, and 165 pound classes respectively. Wright, Podawiltz, and Virgil each placed third in the 115 pound, 145 pound, and heavyweight classes respectively.

BOONE Director of Athletics Coach of Varsity Football, Track, Wrestling Boys Physical Training Mr. Boone ' s reputation as a coach of merit is firmly established. He has accomplished much and his system has proved successful. It is only necessary to glance at the record of the well organized athletics of Elkhart High School to substantiate this fact. RUSSELL L. BRATTON Coach of Varsity Basketball Junior High School Physical Education Mr. Bratton is a graduate of Indiana State Normal, Terre Haute, Indiana. He has had two years of experience with the Scott Junior High School at Terre Haute and one year at Edenberg, Indiana. He turned out a good team there and then accepted a call to Elkhart. This is his fourth year of coaching and he suc- ceeded in turning out a very good basketball team for E. H. S. THEODORE H. MILLER Coach of Tennis Through the efforts of Mr. Miller tennis has become a more popular sport in E. H. S. Undoubtedly much enthusiasm has been created by the popular singles and doubles tournaments held each spring and fall under the direction of Mr. Miller. E. H. S. has made a truly fine record in tennis the past few years, hich, in itself says a great deal for Mr. Miller. mrm inn IIIIII IIIMIII — 118 — rrmrTT MUSIC QIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIi,: ' 1 .

" Tuesday evening " Cinderella Married " and " Indian Summer " were presented to the parents of students and to invited guests. Wednesday evening both plays were given in a single program. The admission for this was twenty-five cents. In both evening performances. Madonna Farren played several violin solos during the intermission. All were unanimous in their praise with regard to the painting of The Little Theatre, the new curtains and other improvements. Miss Sherrick, with the very valuable assistance of Miss Cole and the Art Department, have worked very hard to complete the work and they surely deserve much credit. Elkhart High School can now say that it has one of the most beautiful Little Theatres in the state of Indiana. iiniiin mi milium mum inn i!:. ■ iiiiiiiiiiimiiJiiiiiiiiiiiminiirTTTTnTTTtT gi — 125 — ' : gAii mi i ' iiiiiii ' .ii i ii i i i i i i i im i ii Qiin mnna CINDERELLA MARRIED The fantastic little play taken from the famous fairy tale. As the fairy tale is made very idealistic so this sketch is made very realistic. Cinderella, a rather fleshy girl who likes cinders, sausages, and milkmen. Her princely husband tries in vain to have her become more dignified like his Arabella, the girl of royal blood that he almost married before he went to the ball and met Cinderella. Cinderella is just plain, simple Cinderella and by the assistance of her maid Nanny is able to keep to her old customs of eating sausages. The Prince arrives at a very inopportune time and Cinderella has to confess. CAST Cinderella . Virginia Burkhardt Ladies in Waiting .

They call a meeting of their servants to see just what they think of this plan and find the servants think that they are being imposed upon. Each one in his turn voices his opinion on what would be the more tactful way to go about it. They find fault with the mistress ' plan until they almost drive her insane thus giving the play a very humorous touch.

The entire play takes place in the living room of the Winslow home. It is a late June evening. One gets the idea that the two big brothers of the big, rather old-fashioned family, Oliver and Mark (Walter Compton and Morris Tut- hill) just about run things since the death of their father. Oliver especially, with his blustery big business man air, seems to override the others with his own ideas of how things should be done. Nancy Blake, (Phyllis Helfrick) of the Blakes of Long Island is coming to visit the Winslows as a house guest, and one has the first intimation that Richard, the youngest, (Wilbur Templin) is somewhat deficient in his family status as the other members unanimously and unhesitatingly decide that Nancy can take Richard ' s room and he can go someplace else. Mark takes a delight in twitting his younger brother and he is ably supported by the rest of the family. Augusta Winslow Martin (Josephine Anderson), the married daughter who is still hanging around with her lawyer husband, Alan Martin (Ralph Miller), " puts in her oar " more than her share of times in riding the youngest youngster, and with her winning sarcasm manages to make herself the most disliked member of the family. The younger sister, Martha (Genevieve Rinehart) has some sym- pathy for Richard, but it all seems to run to the humorous and thus doesn ' t provide much balm for poor Richard. Richard Ovves about 99 and 44-100 percent of his trouble to the fact that he has the misfortune to have literary ideals and ambitions while his illustrious = ' •■: . . ' ZZZZ 128 I mn iiiiiiiiiiii u miniiiii! IIUIIHIIIIIIIft father, grandfather and brothers are lions of industry in the pin-manufacturing business. Richard would rather write than work. Alan Martin behaves like a fairly docile son-in-law, while dear, sweet Mother Charlotte Winslow (Ruby Johnson) doesn ' t seem to know what to do about it all, and she gratefully turns over the family management to the officious Oliver. Nancy arrives, trim and smart, and obviously a very sweet little girl. Sym- pathetic, of course, with Richard. She just despises unfairness! She believes that she can transform Richard so that in a short time the family will be at his feet rather than on his neck as is in the first act. Martha doesn ' t think so, and she makes a wager with Nancy to that effect. Then the plot begins to ferment. Before the curtain falls Nancy convinces Richard that there was truly the labor of love in her efforts to emancipate him from family subservience, and so every- thing ends happily, and Richard allows the rest of the family to continue to live in " his house " . Each of the young Barrymores performed excellently. Much credit should go to Miss Sherrick who coached the comedy drama so successfully. The Elkhart High School Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Cheney furnished music before the play and during the intermision. WISDOM TEETH This little one-act play has for its setting a Dentist ' s office, a place where some go to get acquainted and others go because they have to. Mrs. Hill takes her only nephew and heir to her large fortune along with her. The atmosphere almost makes one ill but the scene changes when a quite nice looking lady comes into the office. She is about to tell her name when the attendant calls her in. Henry feels that he simply can ' t go until he finds out her name. He takes such unheard of methods to prevent his aunt from going that the situation becomes very humorous but every thing turns out alright when Henry finds that the unknown lady is his Aunt ' s new Secretary.

Aunt Letitia tries to comfort him but it is not until the arrival of Uncle Nathaniel that Jonathan is really encouraged. Uncle John protests and at this time a tramp comes along and Jonathan decides to run away with him. The second act is the dream that Johnathan has. He dreams that while attempting to get away he fell out of the window and broke his back thus making him a hunchback. He tries in vain to tell who he is but no one believes him. His Uncle Nathaniel has always told him that when ever he feels in despair to just go up on top of the hill back of the house and look at the whole world. In his dream he decides to do this and at this time he wakes up to find that he has been in a deliri- um. His uncle tries once more to make him go into this sensible business that he has been prescribing all along but Johnathan packs his suitcase and when about ready to leave Uncle Nathaniel decides to adopt him. Uncle Nathaniel tells Johnathan that he (Nathaniel) has been a very successful actor and playwright and that when John protested some years ago he ran away from home too.

H. S. Art Classes under the tutelage of Miss Eva Cole, although not an outstanding group in school activities, have been accomplishing a great deal for the various departments, outside of their regular class work. The most outstanding achievement of the classes is undoubtedly the making of the plates in this and subsequent annuals. All of the drawings included in this volume were made by members of the Art department under the direction of Ruth J. Miller, Art Editor of this edition. The artistic part of the setting for the operetta, Pinafore, as well as the plan- ning and execution of the redecoration of the " Little Theatre " is due to the efforts of members of the Art classes. Also each of the class plays necessitates some work for the arrangement of the stage settings. The department has donated its services to the Athletic Association by making signs, placards and drawings for printed posters for use in advertising and for the various athletic events in which the school takes part. Also the greater part of the publicity work needed during class play and Dramatics club ticket drives, Pennant weekly, Pennant Annual, besides the Y. M. C. A. drive was furnished by the Art classes. The menus and place cards for the various faculty banquets are all arranged for by the Art department and the Art students and room are always a willing source of artistic information open to all those who ask for it. The Art Department is a self supporting department, all materials used in its work being purchased by means of a fee paid by the students each semester. 142 — ' J " v, $ i 7TT ill ihtt J0L1TCNAUISM s ., 5 A iiiiMi ' Uiii!r:i;iiiiihiiiiMiiiiii l ' i!ii:iiiiiiiiiMMiiiiiiiiiir iii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiu THE PENNANT nrm inilli. ;. . llllllllinilllllMlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllil ' lil ' lillllIlM =3 i r 143 S] .■■Miiiiiiiiiiinnm mm Miiiiiiiiiniiii THli PKNNAM HillllllllinilllTTTTf lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll ' lllllllllllll Q — 144 K :iiiiiiiii;i!iii!;i; ' " T i Hillll il l l U2 PENNANT OFFICERS (First Semester) Editor-in-Chief Madonna Farren Managing Editor Phyllis Stewart Business Manager Edson Fish Ass ' t.

JOINT HALLOWE ' EN PARTY The entire Senior Class met in the Gym for one grand party. Almost every- one was masked for the occasion. Three snap shots of Seniors, their High School friends, or anything pertaining to the school was the only admission fee. During the evening there were some real peppy stunts among which was a prophecy written by Phyllis Gampher, worked out by the committees. Dancing was started by a grand march led by Mr. Jones and Miss Flauding. The Gym was decorated in black and orange. All the posts were decorated with pumpkin faces or cats. Any Senior there that night can tell what a good time he had.

All communications must be accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope, and the sucker fee of twenty-five cents per boob.) Lonely Hearts: I am a quaint, shy, little maiden of sixteen summers, and would like to cor- respond with some brave man who lives out in the great open spaces where men are men and women are governors. I enjoy riding immensely, just discarded my kiddy horse last year. Won ' t some kind hearted man of iron hear my plea? Send your picture and I ' ll mail you one of mine — They say I look like Pola Negri. Hazel Dougherty. Lonely Hearts: I am a big, bounding, baby, boy. Next year I will be a Senior in High School. I want to write to some girl that lives away off. The fellows here all kid me — but I think they are jealous. I am quite a boy because I am in most everything here at school. I belong to the Hi-Y, the Boy Scouts, the Pennant Weekly, the Orchestra, the Commercial Club, the Forum, the Debating Team, the Home Economics Club, the Art Club, and I am an usher at church and take the collection. I don ' t know but I think they are going to pledge me to the Rah! Rah! Club. I don ' t belong to the band but I can toot my own horn. Oh, yes I was in the Pinafore 1 5-6 nights — I was miles away for a few minutes one night. Someone who wants an active little dickens had better write me. Edson Fish. Lonely Hearts: I am very sad. Life seems not worth the while. I am a good clean boy, willing and cheerful — Yet I am misunderstood. I am around girls all the time, yet they seem so far away. I thought maybe it was halitosis, you know — that insidious thing — but I drank two bottles of Listerine and only got indigestion. I need someone badly — if there is an aching heart that wants company, write to me. I ' ll pay the postage. Daniel Policoff.

Gentlemen: I was always frail and sickly and no one was ever attracted to me. I noticed your ad, " have you ironed today? " and bought me several little rusty boxes of your raisins. I am going to tell you of an experience I had yesterday. I was never known to have an iron constitution, but while walking near the iron mill, I felt myself suddenly lifted into space and upon glancing around I was suspended from a huge magnet. At last I feel that I am attractive. Ironically yours, (Joe) Moore Iron. " Sir, you ' re trying to kiss me! " " Exactly. Now that you know, suppose we quit assaulting one an- other and co-operate a bit. " Two inmates of the Jackson asy- lum were overheard talking things over on one of the recent warm days. " Gee, this is a swell day, " said the first goof. " Wouldn ' t it be great to have a lot of beer, a beautiful girl, and a shady place to picnic? " " You better shut up " cautioned the second loon, " or they ' ll put you out of here. You ' re talking sense. " " So you want a position as a ste- nographer, young lady? What are your qualifications? " " Well, my father is a bad shot. " Was it cold? Boy! I ' ll say it was. Why it was so cold that day that the sunlight froze on the pavement and we had daylight all that night. " Greenhorn — " And how can we tell when we ' re near an elephant? " Bored Companion — " You ' ll de- tect a faint odor of peanuts on his breath. " Hippity hop to the tonsorial parlors after maybe a nickels worth of horseshoe nails. Along came an spider and sat down in front ' er And Jill wasn ' t far behind maybe. " Ask Me Another " The Pennant, desiring to keep up the educational work now taking form of questions and answers found in all good and Christian pe- riodicals, has concocted a few brain developers that have been contri- buted by H. L. Mencken, Senator Borah, Aaron Sapiro, Marion Tal- ley, and John Stahr. They follow: 1. Why does the water come so close to the shore. 2. Why do Packards, Rolls- Royces, and Pierce Arrows cost so blame much more than Star touring cars? 3. What is in chop-suey? 4. What ' s the matter with Nica- ragua? 5. Why can ' t the Pennant Week- ly make money when no one sub- scribes? 6. Why is Nature grand? 7. Give five reasons for your suc- cess in life. 8. Now give five more telling why you gave five reasons for your suc- cess in life when you know blame well you ' re a prune? 9. How old is Anne? (ask your Ma and Pa this one). 10.

How To Be A Gag Writer In Four Simple Lessons Lesson I. Write a skit ending as follows: " That wasn ' t no lady, that was my wife. " This lesson is absolutely es- sential and must not be ommitted. Lesson II. Write at least three jokes about the closeness of the Scotch race. These are guaranteed to go over big. Lesson III. Complete the following exercises by filling in the blanks. She was only a ' s daughter, but she . She is so dumb that she thinks is a Lie ' s so good he could sell to a Lesson IV. Write a skit beginning in a very serious, passionate, suggestive or tragic way. Spoil the whole effect in the last sentence. The more sug- gestive the beginning of your skit is, the better it will be. If you have carefully followed the above instructions you are now a full-fledged gag writer, and you are ready to take your place on the staff of a college comic or any other publication devoted to clean, whole- some fun .

The father wrote to Sandy — " I don ' t want to hear another appeal for help from you. " The next month this letter came: " Dear Dad: This isn ' t an appeal. I only want to report to you that I have no pants. " " If you can ' t get up the ladder of success on your own feet, don ' t grab the coat-tails of the feller a- head.

" " Then where, " said our friend, " do all the cigar and cigarette stubs come from that I see about me? " " From gentlemen who didn ' t ask about the law, " the monk replied mildly. 3 3 llllllllllllllllllllllllllllli ' :.

But the boys went to college, and the second house was sacrificed to pay tuition fees, etc. " The children will appreciate what we have done for them, " the father said. " They will help us out a little in our old age. " But the children died and the parents were forced to spend their declining days in a Charitable Institution. The finest thing a young man can do is to contract for a policy of life in- nsurance large enough to replace in the old age fund of his parents, the money they expended toward his education. J.
