Text from Pages 1 - 118 of the 1922 volume:

INTRODUCTION Alexander Pope said, “The glories of a nation shrink into a coin," and likewise “The glories of our High School shrink into an Annual.'' but wc sincerely hope that they .have not shrunken beyond recognition, rather do we hope that our unseeniing “glories” have shrunken to oblivion and that our unquestionable glories remain, between the cover of this book, undefaced coins of intrinsic value.

CLAUDE WRIGHT SAMUEL AURELIUS The Board of Education TO THE READERS OF THE 1922 CRESCENT: It is with genuine pleasure that this short greeting is written. our support of this enterprise of the Senior Class and of all other High School activities is highly appreciated and has been the effective means of giving us the success we have achieved. We hope for a continuance of this support and promise that we shall strive to merit it. The High School itself has had a most amazing growth, increasing from 350 to 500 in five years and requiring the services of twenty-two teachers where formerly fifteen could easily take care of the work. Some new dpart-ments have been added, including Vocational Agriculture and Commercial subjects. These have amply justified their introduction. A large number of young men are being instructed in the better methods of scientific farming and encouraged to become and remain tillers of the soil, an occupation which is becoming more and more attractive. At the same time the Commercial Department is acquainting both boys and girls with a kind of practical knowledge which not only fits for commercial occupations, but also helps in all other walks of life. There has been much improvement in the. academic work. Never before hav so many young people been interested in literary work. The Debating Club has increased in popularity and effectiveness. A Dramatic Society has been organized and has begun to function. The prospect is good for a live literary society to foster the creative genius in poems, essays, and other literary forms. Much can be done with the help and encouragement of the patrons. We are gratified to know that a new gymnasium is to be built by the citizens and hope for more classrooms for our High School. We know that you will give us these improvements when you realize our need. With best wishes, ARTHUR W. KONOLD, Superintendent.8 THE CRESCENT, 1 !) 2 2 ARTHUR W.

When, in that ancient time oi 1919, we entered the portals of higher knowledge, we were determined that nobody would play any of those tricks which we had been warned against. The Sophomor s sagely told us that we would soon get used to it but the Seniors looked at us as if they wondered what their school was coming to. Socials, class meetings, et cetera, have been just about as frequent as marriages in this class. Hut this is not to be considered as a sign that the members are backward for there are many of the class who get their lessons occasionally. There are also a few in the class who are actually going to school to get enough enlightenment to at least be able to show their altruism when interrogated by a fellow mortal concerning the weather. in the days when we were Freshies our class had several members but because of the teachers, spring fever, and other hardships—yea, verily, indeed the faculty is a hardship—the class has almost become extinct. There are fifteen members who will graduate. At the graduation of this class the E. II. S. will lose a small but intensely loyal group of boosters. Ever true to the Red and Blue, we sincerely hope always to be considered loyal and unswerving in allegiance to our high school, we remain, the 4B class (until promotion).THE DAILY SCANDLE Vol. XIXIXIVII.

This class with the splendid examples set before it by preceding classes, has grown in strength and spirit as it has decreased in number. Sophomore year with its opportunity to put into concrete form the spirit that filled each one, was all that this or any other class could wish. The efficient and popular officers who made this possible were: Ralph Bundy, President; Virginia Blake, Vice President; Marian Downs, Secretary: Elva Ilolton, Treasurer. Under their leadership this class conducted a full season of social affairs. And now, holding true to the Old Rose and Gold, may they show to the world and their school that their motto is “Deeds Not Words." 3B Class History The 3B class, being a Midwinter class is smaller by comparison, but indeed this has not hindered it from participating in school and class affairs. As Sophomores this class displayed its wisdom and understanding by electing: Ilerschel Kinsey, President; Pansy Merritt, Vice President; Paul Osborne, Treasurer; Luton Cook, Secretary. They arranged and carried out several enjoyable socials which will always be remembered. In a pleasing fashion the first half of the Sophomore year passed. The new term brought them back as 2A's with a clearer conception of their school. They chose as leaders in the task before them: Gladys Jackson, President; Pansy Merritt. Vice President; Harlow Carpenter, Treasurer; Wylie Tomes, Secretary. These officers continued for the Junior year. Perhaps this class ranks highest in endeavor, but whatever its standing it’s “strong for Elwood." The Junior Class has shown that it is the A1 class in athletics. Will Easty, Line, Fisher, and Ash bP soon forgotten? The Junior class basketball team has done enough to secure them a place. Last year as Sophomores they won the interclass tournament. With great prospects for a Senior team, they look forward to the last honor. May all success attend them.38 T II E C R E S C E NT, 1 !) 2 2 40 T II E C R E S C E N T, 19 2 2T II E C R E S C E N T, 19 2 2 41 2A Class History This battalion enlisted in a good cause in the fall of 1920. They did not come “tripping happily to school" but crept up and peered into Assembly 1. The:, they sank without a ripple into the stream of daily routine as all of their predecessors had done. Hut that isn’t all; we are sorry to say they found that they were not mastercraftsinen in the art of learning, but fairly entered upon their apprenticeship. Nevertheless all of us make common mistakes and profit by them. And so they learned many things as they grew older. But that isn't all. In due course of time they became Sophomores and are still Sophomores. The officers chosen were: Ed Griffin, President: Paul Delbauve, Vice President; Ruby McGee, Treasurer; Carl Winings, Secretary. They were scheduled to serve two terms but the Treasurer was pardoned and Alice Clark was awarded tile position. The social season started in a rush with a party at Massey’s but somehow received a stroke of paralysis and has not since recov-( red. This class has opportunities before it and has but to grasp them. But that isn't all. 2B Class History In January a legion with smaller numbers but with no less larger hat bands signed up a long-time contract for diplomas. Like the rest they found that they could not make much headway by floating so they began to paddle, and have paddled ever since. Their line-up for the second heat was: Edmund Jones, President; Ethel Jones, Vice President; Louise Faust, Secretary; Max Bodkins, Treasurer. But that isn't all. These Sophomore classes are extraordinary. They have Marconis, Web-sters, Garricks, Kreislers, Paderewskis, Sousas and many others of variagated fame among them. Perhaps this is because so many of them are from the country. That is all for this time.42 T II E CRES C E N T, 1 9 2 2FRESHMEN!THE CRESCENT, 102 2 45 Essay on Freshmen There are tilings of choice and things of necessity—Freshmen are of the latter class. A person is a Sophomore because he used to be a Freshman. Since one tiling leads to another, a person who is a Freshman eventually becomes a Senior, if he does not eventually become something else. Freshmen are very interesting to study, that is if they can be kept quiet long enough. There is a strong tendency to make them the subject of jokes but this is an unpardonable mistake for they are not at all humorous, except in plan of countenance. When they try to be humorous they are ridiculous. When occasionally a Freshman attempts a Harry Lauder or Ilarrold Lloyd before an upper-classman, the observer casually says something and the ambitious amateur quickly wilts. Everything should be done to keep each Freshman in his own stall, or in his own pasture. Freshmen are growing smaller every year. That is a very serious proposition. Are they underfed or is it a natural phenomenaf If they continue to decrease at the present rate, by 1930 they will be vest pocket size. Can we tolerate pygmies within our midst. It is evident that a campaign for larger Freshmen must be promoted. It is the hope of many that the time will come when Freshmen will be ♦ no longer a necessity. It will be a glorious Millenium when that name is stricken from the lists. It is useless to change the name for as it stands it is as fitting as any other. Freshmen and synonomous terms must be obliviated. But, on the other hand, we must not expect too much from them. They are put in the harness unbroken—the breath of common school is upon them. They must be handled with patience and care. Give thanks that there is Evolution in nature, and let it take its course. YE EDITORS.46 T HE CRESCE N T, 19 2 2 The Prize Winners Last fall the Crescent staff offered to the class in Junior High which would sell the most annual pledges an opportunity to have their picture in the Crescent. As this opportunity had never been offered to the Junior High students before they became interested and in the end, the 8A 3’s carried away the prize and are now appearing at the top of this page. This class promises to be a real “boosters” class for Elwood High and when they enter the E. H. S. may they take up the true patriotic spirit and advance E. H. S. in the opinion of other high schools of the state. The Radio Club The world is growing smaller every day. Radio is doing a great deal toward making East, West and West, East. It is a “grand an' glorious feelin’ ” to sit and listen to one’s neighbors over in little old New York, up in the Windy City, or out in Missouri. Sermons, lectures, orchestral and vocal music, market reports, general news—anything a person wishes, can be “tuned in.” With Radio the ether is made to give up the messages which pass through it in all directions—almost like bringing order out of chaos. A few boys have felt strongly the spirit of the coming age of electricity and have installed a Radio receiving set in the High School. At first they obtained poor results but this contributed to greater enthusiasm among the amateurs. so ultimate success resulted. They have “listened in” on everything of interest that has happened to bump into their “antennae” and have informed the public of same. If the public does not take advantage of this opportunity of getting in harmony with Radio activities it will be sorrowly disappointed in the near future. Here's hoping for a larger and more influential Radio Club next year.MUSIC48 THE CRESCENT, 1922 ORCHESTRA NOTES. T here were about fifty members this year in the large orchestra, showing the greater interest taken in music since 1918 when there were only eight on its role. 1 his orchestra played at almost all the Music Memory Contest concerts and was well received at each appearance. The special orchestra was about twelve in number. It played at the Reception and at the Comic Opera, “Priscilla.” Both orchestras played popular and classical music. The “movie” orchestra was another addition this year. It played lighter music than did the other two. A thing to its credit was that it was entirely composed of hoys. THE H. S. BAND. The band was organized in the fall of 1920 to provide music for football games. At the end of some weeks it was discontinued hut the idea of a band lived on. In the fall of 1921 the band was again started upon its course by Mr. Kratli. Later in the year Mr. Burt, reconstructed it until at present it is composed of some twenty pieces. All through the foot hall and basket ball seasons the band has been in attendance to boost our boys. They have also been able to give a very successful concert this spring. The band will steadily grow and in another year we all hope it will be one of the best H. S. bands in Indiana.T II E C R E S C E N T, 1 !) 2 2 4!) “Priscilla” The Boys and Girls Glee Clubs were organized some time after high school had begun in the fall. They presented the comic opera, “Priscilla,” which was the first attempt at anything of its kind ever given in the high school. The main plot of the opera was centered about the love affairs of Priscilla, John Alden, and Myles Standish. Of course, everyone remembers the story as portrayed by Longfellow, but he forgot to tell about the humorous characters: Iliggins, Resignation and Gov. Bradford, who were all presented in the opera. The music itself was of such a diversity that it appealed to all. Priscilla John Alden Myles Standish Gov Bradford Hatebad Higgins ..

Miss Beelar deserves much credit for the successful appearance of the Boys and Girls Glee Clubs in their special songs and selections. Senior String Quartette This was made up of the same members as last year: Lois Albright, first violin; Violet Hall, second violin; Clyde Evans, third violin; Ray Winter, fourth violin. It gave an excellent number, “Miniature Suite” at the Madison County Musical and two selections before a very appreciative audience at the Discussion Contest.50 THE CRESCENT, 1022 The Roosevelt Debating Club 1 he Roosevelt Debating ( lub claims the honor of being the oldest organization in dear old E. II. S. From its gallant struggle in the dim past, it has grown to its present membership of thirty-four students interested in the art and science of debating. That every member may take part in three debates, the members now hold weekly debates. The club has been a very active one this past year. Every debate has drawn a large audience, and all have gained approving comments from El-wood's newspapers. A noteworthy event in the club’s career was the debate given before the Kiwanis.Club, in which Donald Brown, Frank Norris, Byron Avery, Joe Green, Raymond Reed. John S. Grimes, and Herschel Moore represented the club. Four club members, Clifford Bull, Jo,. Green, Chester Matchett, and Harley Anderson, spoke in the annual High School Discussion Contest, Clifford Bull winning first honors and representing Elwood in the district contest at Winchester. For the fall term the club elected the following officers: Donald Brown, president; Byron Avery, vice president; John S. Grimes, treasurer, and Ruth Rapp, secretary. For the spring term: Donald Brown, John S. Grimes and Ruth Rapp were re-elected, while Frank Norris was chosen new vice president. The Debating Club gives valuable training in self-confidence, clear thinking and speaking, and true sportsmanship. There are no restrictions upon membership, the club’s idea being that all have a right to the training and may become creditable and perhaps eloquent orators with time. It has the hearty support of parents, teachers and students. We may expect even greater things from it in the future. in ......... n, iH|pli|i|||||l|l|l l l»l|i )ltll|HI 11 1 111 HMj I hMUj 1 lllUin|iV 13936404T HE CRES C E N T, 10 2 2 Bible Study Bible Study is a new subject in El wood High School, having begun in the fall semester of this year. The course is a semester subject and is open to Juniors and Seniors although some Sophomores are taking it by special permission. It is taught by Mrs. Mills, and is supported by the Ministerial Association. The class is held from 8 o’clock to 8:40, in a room at the Library. One credit is given to any student who takes the course and passes an examination given by the state. The Bibb is studied from a literary, historical and geographical point of view. The Din of Dining Dinosauria (By Orville Cliements) (Editor s note—Mr. Clements is-one of our new contributors. We believe that this gripping tale of pre-historic adventure will establish for him a reputation to be envied, and we hope that our readers will appreciate bis humor which is suggestive of his departed namesake). I remember one hot summer day, several years ago, when 1 was no more than a boy, that, after a hard week’s work ending on Friday afternoon, I took a sudden notion to take a fishing trip. 1 decided to start at once if I could find one of my friends whose occupation did not demand his presence on Saturday morning. I made a complete round of all of them, but they all had to work on the following day. I began to be oppressed by the vision of myself spending the next two days in the dusty, hot, busy city. After a while 1 decided that, since I could find nobody to keep me company fishing, eating and sleeping the next two days, I would assert my manhood by going alone. Thus decided, 1 got my cooking utensils and a bundle of bedding and sallied forth to walk the eight miles to the little log shack on the banks of Lake Martinee. After two miles of walking under thirty pounds of camping outfit, sweateing under by collar, and swearing under my breath, I arrived at the lake ready to eat anything I could catch that wouldn’t bite me first. When I was through arranging my bedding in the bunk, hanging my coat on the wall, building a wood fire outside, and chasing a pig out. of the cabin; I took my casting rod and went to catch my supper. In an hour I had caught enough of the bass, with which the lake was filled, to supply an ordinary family for a week. Since by appetite was all with me, I figured that this would be plenty for my evening repast if I would eat sparingly. Eating is one of my favorite pastimes, so I ate and ate and ate. When the fish were all gone I felt as full as a Dutch Patroon. Of course after eating so much it is a rule of nature to become drowsy, which rule was not suspended at this time. I have always believed in saving time. With this end in view I pasted the Lord’s Prayer near my bed. As I climbed into the bunk I pointed to the piece on the wall and said, “Lord, them’s my sentiments.” Then I immediately went to sleep leaving my dishes and ears unwashed.

S. was organized January 30, 1922 under the direction ol Mr. Shaw, teacher of English in the upper classes. The thirty-live members were picked carefully from about three times that number of students who desired membership. These members are required to have a high grade in each study as well as ability in the dramatic line. Officers were elected and they, with the willing aid of all the members are working to make the organization a success. Robert Blume was chosen president, Paul Delbauve vice president, and Kathleen Galloway secretary-treasurer. 1 lie play, " Martha-by-the-Day,” given April 6, was received with delight, by the many friends of the club members. The audience gladly followed "Martha, a lovable Irish woman in her attempts to make everyone happy. The members are now working on a series of one-act plays which will be given soon. “Wild Willie” or “The Folly of Fools” Time: 6:00 A. M. Scene: Country barn yard adjacent to kitchen door of farm house. Characters: Cow, chickens, hog, a rheumatic farmer, a tin pail, and Ma-tildy, the hired girl. Scene I.—(Curtain goes up squeaking and hesitating). (Enter sun rising over barn). Chickens—Moo-o-o-o-o-o! (low—Woof! Woof! (Enter old rheumatic fanner with side burns, oxfords, silk shirt, skull cap and horn-rimmed spectacles). Parmer—“Good morning! my children.” Tough Rooster (from back stage)—“Sneak with that.” (Enter stage hand with cow on wheels. Farmer begins to milk). Farmer—“So-o-o, gentle one.” (Cow’s head falls off. Stage hand rushes in and puts it on upside down), (Enter Matildy from kitchen door). Matildy—“Breakfast is served, sir.” Farmer—“What’s the menu?” Matildy—“Olives and oysters.” Farmer—“1 will wait until dinner.” (Exit Matildy.). (Orchestra begins to play and animals exit dancing. (Enter messenger boy on roller skates, becomes over-balanced, falls into footlights and gets arm caught in trombone). Farmer (Reading note)—“Entire Annual staff of FT FI. S. stricken with insanity.” (Much weeping, Sun fails from sky with considerable clatter, and animals off stage begin singing, “Wabash Blues.”) (Asbestos Curtain falls on Messenger boy, audience begins bombardment and lights go out).56 THE CRESCEN T, 1922 Cartooning Someone lias said that he could not picture a Diety who had no sense of humor, for of all the saving graces left ns humans, he figured the ability to laugh as best of them all. Whether we agree with the above idea or not, the fact remains that a sense of humor is a safety-valve that has turned many a seeming defeat into victory, and helped many discouraged individuals to see life’s passing show from a much more optimistic angle. The powerful influence of an appeal to the sense of the humorous or ridiculous can hardly be overestimated. If a newspaper comes out with a cartoon which effectively displays the weaknesses of a political candidate, that same cartoon often proves to be the deciding factor in the succeeding election. In some schools there are a few who have no use for cartoons in the school annual. They look upon them as a foolish waste of effort. Yet, in spite of that, one will find that eighty per cent, of the students will look for and get more pleasure from the aforesaid cartoons than from all the rest of the illustrations or reading matter. Many boys, who can draw, believe they are coming cartoonists, and will spend much time furtively sketching funny pictures. Why not take this almost irrepressible desire and direct it in the right channels? Students can soon be shown that the best cartoonists are not only able to evolve interesting “funny” drawings, but that they understand the principles, of good art. A student, who will study cartooning from the standpoint of art principles, his work will begin to have the “punch” and attractiveness that characterizes good cartooning. School life seen through the eyes of the student is full of cartoon possibilities. The cartoon, while causing amusement and interest, at the same time, is bound to preach a much stronger sermon than ten times as much serious matter would do. MISS HELEN BENEDICT. THIS YEAR'S LIMERIKS. There once was a girl among those Who had a small verse to compose, She thought and she thought And she finally wrought, But it wouldn’t pass, even for prose. There was a young man named Gish, Who was very fond of cold Fish. He awoke with dismay When he heard the doc say, “I believe I’ll recover the dish.”58 THE CRESCENT, 192 2 The Noise Makers BURTON SMITH BOB WITTKAMPER "The old series E-L-W-O-O-D, Make it big” and we break loose with everything we’ve got. We can always depend upon them, winning or losing. “Smitty” only had a half year and “Dutch,” Raymond Halting was elected to the leadership. “Dutch” and “Bob” sure could raise the roof.T II E C It E S C E N T, 19 2 2 59 FOOT BALL WABASH, SATURDAY, SEPT. 24. E. H. S. opened the foot ball season with the strong Wabash H. S. team which was last year’s State Champions. Wabash retained 11 out of the 15 champions and was thought by the outside world to be a formidable aggregation. The E. H. S. team with the exception of three men was composed of recruits. The game was played on the Wabash gridiron and after the first 5 minutes of play it was plain that the E. H. S. had a smooth-running machine and certainly had the edge on Wabash. At the end of the first half the score stood, E. II. S. 13, Wabash 0. But in the last half the E. II. S. backs and ends were unable to halt the end runs made by Marks, the W. II. S. 180-pound, 10-second man. The little 140 pound E. ,H. S. aggregation weakened in the latter periods but this alone did not spell defeat. The 23rd man on the field was a “Hoodoo" to Elwood. Final score—E. ,H. S. 13. W. H. S. 19. SHORTRIDGE, FRIDAY, SEPT. 30. On Friday, Sept. 30, our team journeyed to the capital to stack up against the Shortridge High team. Due to the fact that there were about 2,000 spectators on the side lines of the big Butler gridiron, the team was nervous when it went upon the field and Shortridge romped over the goal line before they recovered. Elwood worked the ball to the scoring zone many times but lost on (Continued on Page 62)60 T HE CRESCE N T, 19 2 2T II E C R E SCENT9, 1 9 2 2 G1 CAPTAIN RAY LEWIS T9, ’20, ’21—Senior. Ray was sure a hard hitter and one of the best half-backs Elwood has had for a period of years. He leaves us this year. COACH PHILLIPS Our coach came to E. H. S. from Martinsville in the fall of 1920. Ho improved our teams wonderfully and much credit is due him for our better sportsmanship. LINCOLN JOHN 20, ’21—Junior. Our star fullback, is still stepping: high, wide and handsome. Link’s greatest enjoyment is stepping thru an open field. He is our Captain-elect. VERN SHINN '20, '21—Junior. “Shinnie” was a quarter-back this year and he could sure make his opponents look foolish with his assortment of plays and his ability to throw forward passes. YON EAST '20, ’21—Junior. “Windy,” a member of Heze Clark’s Mythical Eleven. At Greenfield—“O! Boy! watch that guy pick those passes out of the air.” Eastie will be back at his same old tricks next year. FRANK SWANFELT 21—Sophomore. “ ‘Swede,’ you certainly can hit that line.” Frank has two more years yet. “Who made that touchdown?” ED ROGERS '21—Senior. Ed played a fine game at Greenfield and took a special delight in spilling his opponents. CLAY PHIPPS '21—Senior. “Who’s making all that noise?” This was “Phippsie’s” first and last year. He played an excellent brand of ball at center this season. “Here’s to you for success at DePamv.” CLYDE KING ’21—Freshman. Clyde, the husky Freshman certainly made a record for himself this season in the New Cnstle game. He made the record of the most tackles in any one game—IS. "Kingy.” our eyes are on you. ROBERT BLUME ’21—Junior. “Hick" played end and he showed Shortridge how to make end runs. He has one more year in which to play. RAYMOND MEUCCI '21—Senior. Meucci was one of our big men. He played a steady game at guard and could always be depended upon to make a hole when one was wanted. CHESTER BAXTER ’21—Junior. “Chet” was a new man this year and played “some game” at tackle. He is a real man, if he is little. EARL WIMER ’20, '21—Sophomore. Earl received honorable mention by Heze Clark at Peru. “That boy certainly can tackle.” He holds the second best record for tackles in any one game. He made 13 in the Peru game, and has two more years to pick them off. CLARENCE SMITH ’21—Sophomore. “Smity,” our future center did his duty at Greenfield where he, had to take all responsibility of center. This was his first game. EDMUND JONES 21—Freshman. "Jonesie” was little but mighty. He proved to us that a little man can play football just as well as a big man—ask Peru.62 T II E CRESCE N T, 1 9 2 2 fumbles. After the first 5 minutes E. II. S. had no chance to score. Kilgore was the big noise of the day. He was a big man, fast and shifty. Final score—S. H. S., 7; E. H. S., 0. TECHNICAL, SATURDAY, OCT. 8. Our team met Technical of Indianapolis here. This was our first game at home and a large crowd of rooters turned out. The game started at 2:30. All during the first half the teams were about evenly matched. At the end of the half the score stood 7 to 7. The second half started with a bang and before the Capital city team knew what had happened “Swede ’ punched the line for a touch down. Johns kicked goal, and this quarter ended Elwood 14. Tech. 7. During the last few minutes of play Tech, scored a touchdown by a pass but failed to kick goal. The game ended with Elwood 14, and Tech. 13. PERU, OCTOBER 15. This was one of tin fastest games of the season and perhaps more football strategy was used than in any other game. Peru was a bunch of good sports. Let’s show them a good time next year. Wimer was the big man of the day with thirteen tackles to his credit. Final score—P. II. S., 7; E. II. S., 17. NEW CASTLE, OCTOBER 19. The New Castle game was played on Wednesday and was to be our “big game of the season." The II. S. formed a parade and marched through the business district. The first half cf this game was witnessed by one of the largest crowds that ever attended a football game in Elwood, but at the beginning of the second half a hard rain drove everyone to shelter. During the first few minutes of the game East romped over the goal line for a touch down and John kicked goal. A minute later our hopes went glimmering when Captain Lewis, one of the most experienced back field men broke his right leg. The second half was on a wet field and New Castle averaged 160 pounds to our 140. We had little chance through their line and the aerial route was very risky. Jolly of New Castle scored in this period for his team. Final score—N. II. S., 7.; E. H. S., 7. GREENFIELD, OCTOBER 29. The team journeyed to Greenfield through a downpour and stacked up against a team that was as heavy as some college teams. The game was played on a muddy field in a down pour of rain. Shinn deserves much credit for his accurate forward passing in this game with a wet ball. East deserves the same credit at the receiving end of the pass. Six out of the eight attempted passes were completed, which was a remarkable record for a muddy field. Four of E. II. S.’s best men, three of them on crutches, watched this game from the side line. Final score—G. II. S., 12; E. II. S., 6. NOBLESVILLE, NOVEMBER 19. Game cancelled.T H E C R E S C E N T, 1 !» 2 2 63 BASKET BALL FAIRMOl’NT H. S.—NOV. 23—HERE.

FRANKTON H. S.—NOV. 30—HERE. This game started with a rush which kept rushing. The visitors were permitted one field goal. E. II. S. 21—F. H. S. 7. FA1RMOUNT ACADEMY—DEC. 2—HERE. The fast Acadamy quintet came here and carried away the long end of the score. McCombs was largely responsible. E. H. S. 17—F. A. 21. TIPTON H. S.—DEC. 7—THERE. We went to Tipton with high hopes but had extremely hard luck on basket shooting. E. II. S. 6—T. II. S. 45. (Continued on Page 66)THE CRESCENT, 1922 63 VON EAST 20, 21 ’22—Junior. “Eastie” led the team in grand style and was a member of the all sectional second team. He will be back next year at his old position and captain again. MR. PHILLIPS He has proved that he is a real coach by the team he sent to the tournament. WAYNE FISHER ’21—Junior. “Kid” sure has an eye for the loop and can make them from all angles of the floor. Judging from the account he gave in the Shortridge game he will make a real player. Fisher was an all-sectional player. ED VIRGIL ’21—Freshman. Ed was our long, lean, lanky man. He could reach over everybody’s head and put the ball in the basket. He is a member of the all-sectional team. CARL WININGS ’21—Freshman. Carl is a new man in the squad this year. Although he was rather light, he was mighty fast and could hit the basket when need be. EARL GRAY ’21. ’22—Senior. “Gowze,” our midget player is a wonder when it comes to guarding a man. He leaves us this year. MERRILL JONES ’21—Senior. Our long, slim center could certain-lv hit the basket whenever he tried. Merrill was coming good when he took sick and was unable to play the full season. HAROLD BAKER. ’22 Freshman. Harold was a new man at back guard but he played like a veteran. At center he was a wonder for a new man. LINCOLN JOHN ’21, ’22—Junior. “Line,” our fighting floor guard was a feature of our team. His good heady playing and basket shooting got him a place on the all-sectional first team. HUGH GREEN ’22—Sophomore. “Greenie” was right there with the goods under the basket and will surely make a real player as he has two more years. REA CLABAUGH ’22 Sophomore. Clabaugli was perhaps our best “all around" player. As a floor man his improvement has been so amazing that fans are already making predictions for next year.GO TIIE CRESCENT, 1922 SUM MIT VI LEE II.

Although we then considered ourselves martyrs to the cause of education, we can now look back upon those days as care free existence. We, who once considered our teachers as tyrants now realize what true friends they were. We are now embarked upon the Sea of Life left to direct our own course, alone. Some of the blind optimism with which we once surveyed the world has vanished and we can now see things in bare reality. The world is beginning to realize more and more each day the importance of an early training and are widening the opportunities. Grasp opportunity while at hand, for it may never be so near again! May we place ourselves in the roll of advisers for present and on-coming high school students? Your ideals can never be too high nor your aims too lofty. “Hitch your wagon to a star.” That little case of yours, which seems so all-important now, is really only as transitory and ephemeral as those we have survived and now look back upon as farces.

The fourth period I sit in the same big room starved to death. Fifth period, have Latin. Why was Latin ever invented? Sixth period I recite Physical Geography and the seventh I sit in the big loom and wish I was a senior so 1 could sleep. Wednesday—The singing- teacher tested voices. Didn’t no how to do, but the way you do is to sing la, la, la, up and down. She says I sing Alto. Thursday—Nothin’ happened. Friday—My stool slipped in Mr. Hargraves room. Monday—Had singing class. Sang America, Star Spangled Banner and When you and I were young Tommy or Susie I forget which.

He looked so sorrowful when I said I didn’t believe I cared for any, that I bought one. Tuesday—Wonderful day. Had 1 Algebra problem right and a Latin sentence translated right. Wednesday—Saw Mr. Smith eating peanuts. He ate them like they were so good that I got me some. Thursday—Thought perhaps folks might want to see me studying Latin so I have done my best. Friday—Went to sleep last period and dreamed I was a Senior. Monday—A week has passed. Been a terrible week. Had a test every day but one. Tuesday—Got my paper from Algebra. Got 75. Happy day. Wednesday—A red cheeked senior came racing in the room and asked me to buy an annual pledge in flourishing tones, search me what an annual pledge is, but I paid 75c for a little peace of paper with mine and his name on it.

I stretched, yawned, and arose from my bed in the crotch of the tree where I had spent the night. 1 descended warily to get my breakfast of roots of the flags in the nearby swamp. .Just before I reached the ground 1 heard a noise in the thicket a few feet away, instantly 1 was silent. A great animal like a wild boar came from the underbrush, his long tusks gleaming as he snorted and grunted. Seeing me as I made a slight move, he began to try to reach me. I reached up and seized a bough which 1 broke off with one twist, then hanging by my hand-like feet I hit the beast again and again on the head and snout. At last I drove him away. Then I descended cautiously to the ground. I heard a grunt of welcome and turned and saw another creature like myself. 1 know how I must have looked at that far-distant age by the appearance of my playmate. Short body, prehensile tail, hand-like feet, hairy body, long arms, low forehead, big ears which moved about so as to catch all the noises, and eyes close together.

They were made by the dinosauria, huge lizard-like reptiles with great white teeth, hooked and sharp. Slowly and cautiously we slipped into the shelter of the gigantic ferns and club mosses, but ray fellow-ape caused a stick to crack as he crawled under the long frond of a fern. With terrifying hisses the nearest dinosaur, espying us, lumbered after us hissing and lashing his tail. We ran for a high tree but my friend was too late. As I trembled high in the foliage of the tree, 1 heard his screams, then the crushing of bones. The din of a dining dinosaur! When he had finished, he stuck his head up near me forty feet from the ground, and his wicked little eyes gleamed. He placed his front feet on the (Continued on page 103) S. I). MILLSPAUGH CO.
