History ot Elwood High School
In 1888 H. F. Willkie took up his duties as superintendent of the Elwood
schools. At that time the schools were not graded. The other teacher was
Daniel King. ln the winter of 1889-1890 Mr. Willkie filed an application for
a commission. The high school did not come up to the standard and it fail-
ed to receive a commission.
In the fall of 1890 F. F. Fitzgibbon succeeded Mr. Willkie as superin-
tendent. At that time the high course was of two years duration. Mr. Fitz-
gibbon was the sole instructor of the forty-two High School students,
In 1891 and '92 the total enrollment had increased thirteen. there beiwr
fifty-five enrolled. Mr. Meeks was made principal in '91 assisted by Super-
intendent Fitzgibbon in teaching.
ln October. 1891. asked for a commission. Tn renly to the reouest Tl.
H. -Tones. superintendent of the lndiananolis schools visited the classes. He
recommended the school for a commission.,comnlimentinfr the work of the
Senior class in Geometry and Latin. Elwood secured its commissioon in the
fall of '92. H Ti '
A small building oF eicfht rooms served first as a HlU1l School and frrado
school. The high school classes were held in the uooer corridor which was
nine feet wide, with a stairway in the center and a stove at one side.

......... CRESCENT 1915
In the great battle of life, Success is measured in the strides taken to-
ward the fixed goal. The person who is ambitious, works hard, and who
faces his problems in a straightforward manner will eventually succeed. One
must have a breadth of vision, that is he must view a situation from all
angles in order to judge the good and bad qualities of it. Success does not
come to the idle dreamer. The one who makes his place in the world, dreams,
and then strives to accomplish that which is his ideal, the idle dreamer
dreams of greater things and then blames his luck that they do not come
Indeed the motto of the 'iCresccnt" is not to be taken lightly. It has
a deep and underlying meaning. lt is something to uphold and to emulate.
lf one would make it his motto and strive to carry it out he would succeed.
Today in the hurried life of America, Success does not come at will, but'
is the product of those excellent qualities of thinking and working toward one
end, Education, we are told, is the key to Success-then, CVGII as the "Cres-
cent" sheds an ever increasing ray or light upon the universe with such a
beneficial effect, should not the student stop and consider-is he really get-
ting the value from his High School education, is he making the most of it,
is his conception of learning and the value of his education to him "Ever

Our year book has been increasing in value each year without increase
in price, it has set a standard, it is anideal. Llet us resolve that the motto
"Ever lncreasing" will not only be the ideal of our High School annual
but will lead us 011 to higher and nobler aims in our' moral, intellectual, and
religious careers so that tile results from it will radiate to the "four corners"
of the earth from our Alma Mater-Elwood Hi. -The Editor.
The passing of one more year has occasioned the producing of another
volume of the Crescent which honor and responsibility is necessarily thrust
upon the Glass of '26. '
The Staff has worked with a will and although it has had bitter disap-
pointments they only make the result more appreciated. The Class is truly
grateful for the many outside helps and suggestions. The advice andhelp
of Miss Welborn throughout the course of production was invaluable. Mr.
Krause took care of the photography most efficiently, and the Fort Wayne
Engraving Co. did its work in a very commendable manner.
We have made mistakes-every Staff does.. We can not be perfect-
no Staff can. We do not know whether this book will find favor, but we are
solaced in the thought that we have done our best and have tried to uphold
its motto of "Ever Increasing." If you don't like the Crescent, blame the
Editor, if you do, blame the Staff.

The Board of Education
, Q ,Hmm lllllllll umu: l92,6
The mainstay of the school system is the Board of Education. This re-
sponsible group claims little publicity, but it is not always they that talk the
loudest, whose influence is felt the most markedly. Such a board cannot
be chosen at random nor with disregard for executive ability.
Many duties are placed on the shoulders of the chosen few, Whose judg-
ment stands supreme in matters affecting the business of Education. The
members of this board are: Mr. Luther Grose, president, Mrs. I, A. Holton,
secretary, and Dr. Wayne Dean, treasurer.
One of the most appreciated things done this year has been the effort
made to install the mach-needed lockers in the high school. This topic has
been one of current interest to all students, for some time and the fulfillment
of this need is a great benefit to all concerned.

While filling the position of principal of Elwood lligh everyone regarded
Professor Smith an unusually capable executive, but not until he became
Superintendent were his true accomplishments realized. Ile is taking his M.
A. degree at Columbia Universitiy, and with his educational facilities we reit-
erate that Mr. Smith is capable of retaining an office of a much greater de-
gree of importance.
Occasionally we are given the opportunity to hear a few words from him.
for which we are exceedingly grateful. Mr. Smith indirectly guides us over
the pathway of our educational career and to him We are indebted to an un-
fathomable extent for the successful completion of our school life.
For the past three years Mr. Huff has steered us through the deep seas
of our High School career in an extremely commendable manner. Ile has
settled our questions for us, both trivial and important and is ever ready to
aid one 'in distress.
His aim is to train the student to give to the world the highest and best
of which he is capable, to develop us into the future leaders of our destinies
-men and women who will stand out as noble in thought, in word, in action,
in the eyes of our fellow men-as citizens of the fairest land, whose freedom
we enjoy and venerate, and to whose eternal existence we have pledged our
all, We know that Mr. Huff is working for our good. A

The Future Faculty
On a clear, Winter evening, many years after our high school career had
been completed, several Alumni members of Elwood High School were en-
joying the entertainment of the radio.
"Station E. II. S. broadcasting-" a voice announced, and we eagerly
waited to hear what this familiar broadcaster, Supt. Smith, might have in
store for us.
"At the time of this announcement Mr. Huff is abroad, making some
rare collections in Venice. Harold liehymer, a substitute member of the
faculty is capably filling this position Principal.
"Mr, ,Harsh has given up teaching and is now a famous director of plays
-his most sensational work continues-"'l'he Whole Town 's Talking." Miss
Spencer has been promoted to his position as head of the English depart-
ment, with the understanding that she will not talk more than forty minutes
111 a period.
"A contest in French and Latin between Misses Beeson, Reese, and
Foote, and Mrs. Logan-ltecords, was to be held in the audito1'iun1 a few days
ago, out Miss Foote lsnew so many different languages that she was held
ineligible and the contest was accordingly postponed u11til she has time to
forget some of them.
"Mr, Kratli and Mr. Noble have perfected an experiment that enables
communication witn Mars-they are now regarded as world famous and their
resignation is expected ill the near future.
"Athletics still hold full sway over El Hi and Mr. Phillips, although
now old and grey, is worlging his men hard. A game with Notre Dame
University is scheduled for next Saturday. Mr, ,House and Mr. Koontz are
the efficient mascots of the team.
"Some dispute has arisen regarding the value of pi, and Mr. Forney,
Miss Grosswege, and Miss Thurston are in consultation this afternoon. Their
verdict will be announced later.
"Miss Welborn at this time is Writing a book entitled "Pounding His-
tory lnto Sophomoresf' Mr. Ashton is sorely displeased because it is
whispered he wished to Write a. book of the same theory.
"You will remember Miss Cox. She is now listed as a famous Senator,
and it is said she is very diplomatic--as usual. At this some seemed surpris-
ed, while others have an 'I told you so,' gleam in their eyes." The program
continued and we devoured each word.

I have been traveling for about a year and a half and everywhere I went
the natives asked me if I had visited the oracle in South Africa. As a matter
of fact I had not and furthermore I did not care to. When one of the natives
of India heard this he looked at me in astonishment, in fact he looked at me
until I' blushed violently. When I asked one of the more educated fellows what
was wrong with that fellow over there, he replied that he probably thought
it strange that I would not be interested in visiting the oracle when it answer-
ed any question that might be asked it. "Any question?" I asked in astonish-
ment. "Questions that concern people in far off America?" "Any question,"
replied the native. I inquired about the safest route to Africa and was on mv
way before nightfall.
When I got my first glimpse of the oracle. I shrank within myself. I don 't
remember ever seeing so horrible a creature. I sidled slowly up to it and ask-
ed in a trembling voiice if it would answer a question for me. I waited breath-
lessly for its answer. It nodded in the affirmative. Receiving a little more
encouragement but still trembling I asked what had become of the class of
'25. In a deep coarse voice the oracle replied, "You can only ask one ques-
tion, are you sure that is the one you want?" HI want to know that, .above
anything else," I replied pleadingly. "Very well," said the oracle. "Pay

i THREE FRIENDS
qMa.Xine Maekp i
Without a solitary friend in this world except his yellow puppy, Sport,
little Mickey inquired for work at the race horse staables of Mr. Linton. He
was just a freckled faced, red headed, bare legged boy looking for work.
Upon securing at job there, soon the smell of horses, the yelping and playing of
the dogs, the excitement of the races, were life to Mickey,
And Miss Dorothy, Mr. Linton's daughter with sweet and smiling eyes,
was soon a goddess to Mickey. He had worshiped her ever since the time she
had taken him in her arms and called him a brave boy, after he had saved
Sport from the clutches of aibull dog. Somehow when he thought of her he
always thought of angels. As for Sport he was just a lean lanky, typical dog,
a real companion for a lad like Mickey. '
At first Mickey had shown no preference for any particular horse, but
later his affections seemed to center on Prince, the most vicious horse in any of
the stables. He was feared by all, and not one had succeeded in making friends
with hjm, so it was little wonder peoplegmarveled at the strong friendship that
grew up between these three-Mickey, Sport and Prince.
Mr..Linton had almost decided to sell Prince, because he had such a bad
temper, but finding that Mickey could handle him, he reconsidered and gave
the boy 'charge of him. A few weeks later Prince ran and won in a canter.
From that time on the three were inseparable. What a queer trio they made--
the great black'horse with flaming red nostrils, the little red headed boy, and
the yellow dog.
But after a while Linton began to have bad luck. Things went from bad
to Worse. One by one the horses were sold and boys and jockeys dropped
away. Finally, Prince 's stable door was given the sale poster. It was a crisis
in the little lad's life and with quivering lips and twitching face he threw him
arms about the horseis neck and cried as though his heart would break. Miss
Dorothy who was looking for her father, happened to be passing, and leaned
over the stall window and watched them. Mickey soon saw her, wiped his
tear-stained face on his sleeve and ran to greet her.
"Oh! Miss Dorothy, yer not a. goin to sell my Prince, are yer?"
"I have to, my boy. I am very sorry."
"But he's entered for the Indiana race and he will win. I'll ride him.
He 'll win for me. Honest, I know he will, and it will mean a lot of money if
yer'll only wait until the race is over. Say yer will, please, Miss Dorothy."

And, although she had stecled herself against it, Dbrothy had to give in
to the broken pleadings of poor Mickey, and he was made happy again. He
exercised Prince daily, gradually increasing the workouts in length and speed
until at last Prince was in perfect trim.
But there was one person who looked upon this little jockey and his horse
with malice and hatred in his face. It was Pete, o11e of the jockeys who was
jealous of the boy 's skill in handling the wild horse with Whom he had tried to
,make friends. After he had thought some time he smiled sneeringly, "Perhaps
it would work! Any horse trained for a raceiis a delicate piece of mechanism,
He recalled many instances when just the slightest thing had killed the chances
of a high-strung horse. " 'Tis my hope, I'll try."
The next morning Sport was gone. Mickey searched in vain for him. That-
night Mickey could not sleep and Prince was restless. In the morning he miss-
ed the yellow snappy bundle of rough hair beside him, yelping and barking
for sport. Poor Mickey. And now Prince was'nervous and fretful and kept
looking as if expecting something. That second night neither Mickey nor
'Prince slept. The morning for the Indiana race arrived. All was a tussle and
excitement. Prince was fed and watered and later given the last look-over to
see if everything was all right. Then Mickey led Prince out through the crowd
over to the scales. The numbers were given out and the little fellow mounted
the great horse, who pawed and kicked, and his heart sank as the horsei reared
and plunged and became almost uncontrollable, but he had to Win.
The whistle blew, the barrier lifted, they were gone-but the last of them
all, Mickey leaned over Prince. '
"Go it, old pal! If you only win this race I will love you forever. You
must-You got to. A
The horse responded. He leaped forward. They passed- one, two, three.
They continued to gain until only Pete who was riding Beauty was ahead.
Mickey knew Prince well enough to see that he was doingihis best, and he
could not win, strive as he would. Suddenly something came through the rail.
Only a long, yellow-haired dog, barking and leaping. Prince saw and heard.
Mickey felt the horse give one bound. saw his head stretch out, -and falling
on his mane, he knew no more until hands seized him and he was hoisted in the
air. The first person he recognized was Miss Dorothy.
"You know, Miss Dorothy, I think God must have been watching the race
and He didn't- want to see our family, Prince, Sport and me, separated, so hc
made all three of us winners.
Margaret W.-"That's a pretty loud tie that you are wearing."

For years elasses have eonte and gone, pilgrims on the road to Education
and the Land of .lJtt?ll'llll1gl'. Many have been brilliant, but none so intelligent
as the present Junior elass. '
In September, nineteen hundred and twenty-two, the students of this class
passed through the portals ot' Elwood High School, and entered a land un-
known to them. ln the far distanee the glittering realms of knowledge were
barely visible, as il' against the horizon. lint with great sincerity they become
determined to overcome the obstaeles which they would encounter in reaching
At first they were frightened and bewildered, Many were lu-'ard to ask,
"Where are our brazen vows of a few days a.go?'i The first year was unevent-
ful. l'nder the gruidanee ot' Miss G1-osswege they gained eomposure and be'-
Then at the elose of the year. when they attained the rank of soplioniores,
the responsibility of caring- for themselves was thrust upon them. The glitter-
ing realms of learning' now beeonie more distinct and no longer seeined far off.
As their leader they seleeted Arthur Fllarrell. who was to be assisted by Oral
lee. lllarjorie llowns beeaine secretary and liueille Fiekle. treasurer. The
elass flower ehosen was the Aineriean lleauty Rose and the elass eolors. blue
and gold. The outstanding soeial features were a kid and Valentine party
held at the High School and a lawn party at the home of Marjorie Downs.
The tiine soon ealneto again eleet officers. Arthur Harrell was re-eleet-
ed president, but his assistant beeanie -loe lliatt. Marorie Downs retained
her position as seeretary and Franees Ilettinansperger beeanie treasurer. The
social events during this year inereased and eanie to surpass all reeords.
These students are now entering on their last year. One more short jour-
ney and the vietory will have been won, the goal toward whieh they have been
striving shall be attained. Truly, the greatest happiness eom-es from the know-
ledge ot' a worth-while task well done. i

In the Year ofV0ur Lord, September, 1923, a great a.nd motly host went
under the portals of Elwood High1School. They were known as Freshies, a cer-
tain green speeies which all must be before attaining the coveted cap and gown.
Miss Gl'0SSW6g6 said, "Get thee into Assembly I." There she ruled over
them with an iron rod, fo! verily they needed it- They were all: at at loss in the
great temple of knowledge. After being up-stairs to manual a few times, they
learned not to believe all that was told them. Card time came for the first
semester. The class was weededfout and all strong' ones placed in the class of
1A's. Time rolled on and card time camefor the second smester.
The next year, all those who passed were summoned by Arthur Noble to
Assembly Il. Their goal was coming preceptibly nearer. The whole of their
responsibility was thrust upon them. Finally it became evident that they had
so much business that they were forced to do something. So they said, "Let
us choose one great and wise, so that he may guide us through our second
year." And so accordingly Ralph of the house of Broyles was chosen. Bar-
bara, the fair daughter of Smith, was appointed to preside when he was absent.
Arthur, of the house of Noble, was entrusted with all the money in their vaults,
while Uda, daughter of Adams, was selected to record all happenings.
Time has rolled on bringing marvelous changes. The Sophomores still
maintain their high standing. Thus is the history of the greatest Sophomore
class ever enrolled in Elwood High School.

The largest and also most promising class that the Elwood High School ever
had entered in September in the year one thousand, nine hundred and twenty-
four, Anno Domini. "What class are they?" you ask. Why, our Freshman
class, of course. -
When these received their final cards xaiich mid that they were privileged
to come to Elwood Hi, they made vows that they would prove their worthiness
of this privilege. However, these when they entered 'under the portals of E1-
wood Hi were awed by the irnmensity of this great seat of learning. And they
were surprised by the great multitudes which they saw there, so they said,
"He who said 'all roads lead to Rome' was wrong. It should be this road
leads .to Elwood Hi." And so they wandered' through the halls innocently un-
til Miss Grosswege glared at them so sternly and said, "Get i11to A. R, I," and
so they did. f
There they stayed and studied. Many looked with hate upon the seniors,
others with envy.
Time passed and they received their cards. for the first six weeks. ULU,
they said, "we are no longer as dumb as the Seniors think we are. 'We are
coming nearer and nearer to our goal."

"Tubby" Jones was very short, very fat, a very jolly, and a very likable
boy of eighteen years. Because he was always "cracking" a joke or playing a
prank he was the "life" of every party or picnic that he attended. "Tubby"
had a round face, rosy cheeks on each side of a laughing mouth While over-
crowning all was his coal black hair,- always sleek and parted in the middle.
One spring day 'tTubby" and twoiof his friends were loitering around the
country store when "Tubby" said: "Hey, guys, let's each put our name and
address ou each egg. May be some fair Chicagoian will see it and write to us.
This they did and the eggs were put in a case with many others and shipped
to Chicago. -
After an hour or so the boys each went to his home. Johnny Ogle, slow-
ly turning a plot over in his mind. The conclusion he finally came to was, in
brief, the following:
He had a cousin, Mary Tobias, who lived in Chicago. He proposed to write
a letter to Tubby acting as though he was a. girl who had found Tubby's name.
This he would encase in a larger envelope and send to his cousin. He would
have her take out the small envelope and mail to Tubby. Also. when she re-
ceived a letter from Tubby she would in like manner forward it to him. To
make it possible for her to distinguish letters from Tubby, Johnny .gave Tubby
a large box of stationery, with Tubbyis name on every envelope, for a birth-
day present. All this was necessary to make Tubby believe that he was writ-
ing to a girl in Chicago.
Johnny first consulted Mary, however. She agreed to do it, Johnny pay-
ing her for her services.
After a while he wrote to Tubby. In the letter he told Tubby that he was
a blue eyed, brown haired, laughing lass of eighteen. He asked Tubby if he
knew Johnny Ogle, his cousin, or of course "her" cousin as Tubby thought.
The correspondence continued for some months. Tubby sent a picture and
requested one. The reply was that he would have to wait until he saw her to
find out her looks. Tubby asked Johnny how she looked. Tubby went away
very well satisfied for Johnny 's description tallied with the one she had sent
Tubby, strange to say, fell in Cwhat he thought to bel love with this un-
seen girl. ,His heart pounded violently when he thought of his picture on her
dresser. Alas! if he had but known that Johnny had laid it in a secluded cor-
ner of the attic months before.
A letter in the spring notified Tubby that Miss Tobias was coming to
spend the summer with the Ogles. How Tubby made plans for that summer!
He was elated when he found out that Mrs. Ogle was giving a party, in honor
of her coming. t

Tubby waited impatiently for Mary to come down the stairs. He had
pressed his clc thes, combed his hair, and had spent more time Hdolling up"
than he ever had before. Would she be favorably impressed? What would
she look like? These and a thousand other questions raced through Tubby's
mind. Meanwhile the crowd wondered at his seriousness.
Then Tubby realized that he was perspiring. He stepped outside for a
moment to cool off. He heard the hum of conversation cease suddenly. Mary
was coming down the stairs. ,He stepped to open the door to look at her. He
fell back stifling a cry. There instead of a girl in the bloom was a woman who
from all appearances had no teeth, who was also stoop shouldered and
forty-five or fifty years of age. At first glance one could tell that she was
an old maid.
Tubby walked outside into the darkness, his hopes destroyed, his dreams
shattered. For 'ten minutes he sat studying. Then he walked back into the
house-beaten and knew it-but smiling. He motioned for Johnny to come
His smile vanished when his back was to the crowd. Out in the dark-
ness Tubby said, "Johnny you got me. I don 't see how you did it. Now get
in there and enjoy yourself. l'll get you some time, l'll not say how, but don't
worry and be careful!"
A GOOD AME
It is ever to be kept in mind that a good name is in all cases the fruit of
personal exertion. It is not inherited from parents, it is not created by certain
advantages, it is not the result of noble birth, wealth, talents or station in life
but the results of one 's own endeavors, the fruit and reward of good principles,
made by a course of virtuous and honorable actions, However humble his
birth or obscure his condition, a. man 'has Ollly to fix his eye on the prize and
press toward it, in a course of useful and virtuous conduct, and it is his.
A good name will not come without being sought. In information of char-
acter, personal exertion is the first, second, and third virtue.
It is of the highest importance that you have a commanding object in
view, and that your aim in life be elevated. Set your standard hi.gh and you
cannot fail to rise higher than if you had aimed at some inferior excellence.
You may be whatever you resolve to be. Aim at excellence and excellence will
be attained! "I cannot do itl' never accomplished anything. "I will try," has
accomplished wonders. There is in many cases, a steadiness of aim, which
holds one to his object and makes success certain.

For many years, the need of 'a newspaper in the high school has been keen-
ly felt, and the advisability of instituting one has been seriously considered. -
Mere thoughts are of no material consequence unlets converted into physi-
cal activity. The realization of our hopes appeared in the form of an eight-
page paper, issued January 11, 1924. It was published by the staff with no
assistance of any kind from any outside source, and any credit that may be

SOCIETAS LATI A
The Latin Sfllli0l1fStil0llg,2'il they are studying a so-called "dead language,"
are alive with ambition, and in Uvtolwr, 1924, organized the clnh known as
Ugoeietas Latina." The new o1'g'anizatim1 was 1't-ceived with enthusiasm and
increased its enrollment to one hundred within a few days, althongli mem-
bership was limited to volunteers from the second. third and fourth classes.
As indivated hy the 4-onstitntion which was adopted at the November
ineetingr. the- purpose ot' this organization is to study the life, laws and customs
Oi' the Roman people. whereby the inelnhefrs hope- to increase their knowledge
and interest in the field of Latin,
Aetive nn-nihership is confined to those who maintain an average of E
or G in class work. Others may atteend meetings as associate ine-inbers. The
Club has a meeting every nionth in which a play or prograni is given. The of'
fieers as ele-etc-d at the first mee-ting were: President, Dorothy Stieglitzg Vive
President, John Stoker: Secretalry-'l'reasu1'er, Helen Hall: Guards, Rilillll
Broyh-s and Arthur Noble. Prograni eommittee, VVillard liatson. Frances
Hettniansperger, Louise Fields, Edward Wislai1', Orpha Nnznni and Minnie
Auerbach. chairman, Miss Foote, teavhor of Latin. is the sponsor for the r-lnh.
As the time passes on, eaeh year brings new and greater things to inan-
kind. The world is ever progressing. henee the many elianges, One of the great-
est agents in making' us a wiser humanity is the wonderful revelations of the
seientifie field. From the eave man who started his fire with fraetion of rocks,
we have guardaully ascended the never-ending ladder of knowledge. Looking
down into the blackness of the past, we eau still vaguely see our ancient pre-
decessors. Then we stop for a moment and review the past up to the present
day. where seienee is in it's most lustrous bloom and greatest progress,
'l'hroug'h seienee, many heretofore impossible aehievenients have become
mere trifles in the hands ot the people. Through experiment after experiment,
seienee has enabled us to get into toueh with other eountries and plaees far
away, and it has even beeome possible for sound waves to be eolleeted from
the air by means of radio.
The sehool has beeome a plaee for obtaining information in seienee as well
as the many other subjeets. lt has even beeome so enthusiastie in the encour-
agement of the study of this great work. that it has permitted organizations
to be formed for the purpose ot' presenting branches of the work of seientists
to the student body. Proud we are that sueh an organization as the Radio Club
eau exist and do some real work for our high sm-hool.
Some years ago. this organization startrd and flourislied sueeessfully, bc-
eoming more praiseworthy and aetive eaeh year, This club has made our
sehool alive to the events ot the day. and has aeeomplished a purpose for whieh
we feel more gratitude than ean be expressed in words. llere's to this fine
organixation. Never was there a better one.

DEBATIN G CLUB
In a Democracy, it is essential that we have citizens with the ability to ex-
press their opinions. No school organization is better fitted to give this train-
ing than the debating club, for it not only broadens our views and gives to us
the fundamentals of better thinking, hut it also tends to widen our vocabulary
and improve tl1e quality of our speech.
Little can we realize what. course in life each student will take after step-
ping' from the door of learning. lint with the aid of various branches of mental
culture, the school equips each student with material which he can use to his
Our country depends solely upon the opinions and decisions of a few peo-
ple in whom we place our confidence. They have been trained and fitted for
this purpose. Without, this training, the United States today would be declin-
ing. Witll this in mind, the school has brought, into existence, the debating
club, which is and will ever be an outstanding feature of our school,
Our club this year is the best in the history of Elwood High School Hlld we
appreciate the fact that it is striving' to make our high school a iz-lace of
interest and enjoyment as well as a place of education. A debating club is one
means by which the school prepares us for the responsibilities of later life, and
sends us forth from its jurisdiction as solid rock upon which our country may
build a stronger and better nation.
THE BOOSTER CLUB
The l-iooster Club, which has grown to be one of the largest and most im-
portant organixations of this institution, was organized only one year ago.
Since then it has gained publie recognition as well as the respect of the School
and has beeonie very influential i11 the life of Elwood High.
This group consists of titty of El-Hi's "peppiest," best known and faith-
ful girls. They not only boost athletics, but indulge in them also. Tennis
clubs are organized to play in the spring and fall. while basketball affords the
winter enjoyment. At every game the l-Roosters may be found on the sidelines,
giving to the teain all that they possess in the way of yelling and thus help
spur them on to victory.
The offieers elected for the past year were:
President .................... Urpha Nuzuni
Vice-President ............ Dorothy Dipboye
Seeretary-Treasurer ........, I-iergitta York
These have proven very efficient and have niade possible the innnense sues
cess of the past terui. Miss Cox, their advisor. has been just as enthusiastic and
lively as the girls at their meetings and has served as a "guiding star" for
them throughout their period of organization.
Probably the greatest feature of the past year was the Cliristnias party
given for the poor children ot' the eity. The general public was exceedingly
pleased with this act and the girls felt as if they were performing a deed worth
while and one to be appreciated. I
The Booster Club is certainly gaining more and more regard which assures
its sueeess for the years to come.

Bows and Girls Glee Club'-
Music can be traced back to the beginning of time. In the Bible there-is
continual mention of singing and playing of harps, It is one of-the foremost
arts of humanity. . '
A In music, joy adn sorrow are expressed, also tragedy and humor may be
revealed. through music we can disclose our inner feelingsg on the other hand
our emotions rdpond to music.
Good music is characteristic of life, for it represents happenings that oc-
cur heie on earth. Each single strain calls out a story of its own which We,
when so trained, can understand as something real and entertaining. A low
type of music actually degrades the morals, while the best music exalts and
inspires one better This is the kind of inusic the choruses are learning-
. The boys' and girls' glee clubs are encouraging the better styles of music
and more tliorough interpretation of its meaning- They are bringing before
the citizens selections of classical composition. Through these clubs the school
is endeavoring to cultivate a keen appreciation of music,
Our glee clubs keep the student body industrious and ambitious and fills
otherwise dull atmosphere with brightness and content.
As We listen to these budding artists we see a beautitul meadow upon
which the sun throws its glistening rays We hear a strain of nifusic, and
glancing before us is e see a thron of spn it like forms singing' a carefree song
lNow the spell is broken and ue arouse ourselves only to have the scene fade
from our sight Thus music controls our thoughts and energy and We act in
accordance with its influence

Board of Education
Of all the organizations connected with this institution, this group is the
less noticeable around school, but yet the most important. The School Board
is composed of three members, each serving a term of three years, taking office
the first year as Treasurer, the second as Secretary, and the final year of ad-
ministration as President, At the present time llr. VVayne Dean is President,
Mr. Luther Gross, Secretary and Mrs. I. A. Holton, Treasurer. l11 August of
this year, Dr. Dean 's term of office will have expired, and he will be succeeded
by Luther Gross. A new member will be appointed by the City Clouncil who
will become Treasurer, Mrs. Holton having advanced to the capacity of Secre-
This organization is actually the head of the school since it has practically
entire control over its management. The members have many vigorous and im-
portant duties placed upon them which are essential for the operation of the
school. For instance: they have the authority to employ teachers, to arrange
for the payment of their salaries and to dismiss them from their duties if not
efficient and desirable. They have charge of the construction of buildings for
educational purposes, school furniture and fixtures are supplied only through
their influence, text hooks are selected and in fact, all things pertaining to the
operation and success of the school are executed by this group of three per-
sons. No educational, financial or political statis is necessary for appointment
to this Board. To this organization we owe a very great deal for without them
our school would begin to fail and finally perish.

Co-operation is a promoter of success, If it had not been for this, the
United States would have never gained her freedom from England. If it had
not been for this we could not have been victorious in the world War.
Although co-operation has been surprisingly slow in gaining a foothold
in the school, it has at last found a hearty welcome in E. H. S. The high school
is interested in furthering the acquaintance of parents and teachers.
Our school has been benefitted greatly despite the short time such an or-
ganization as been in existence. The parent-teachers association has brought
the teachers and parents into a mutual understanding and consequently the
students have profitted- The school as a whole has outgrown the stage in which
the teachers pull one direction and the parents another. In place of that, they
are now pulling together with one aim, to further the education of our young
generation and to promote interest and welfare of the school, in view of the fa-
vorable effect 011 the future generation. The officers of this year are: Presi-
dent, Mrs. Cotton. Vice-President, Mr. Emigg Secretary, Mr. Johnsong Treas-
urer, Miss Mary E. Cox. .

In the Autumnal season of '24
Several bi beefers, a dozen or more,
Stepped out on the field and played- a game,
To redouble their muscle as well as their fame.
.Well, they set a wee pig in the center th' bunch, v
Crouched on the line with their backs in a hunch,
Wherewith they tore loose and they ripped and they dashed,
And for nigh on two months they fought unabashed.
Well, about that time it got pretty cold,
And out came some more boys a feelin' bold.
They looked pretty smart and they felt the same way,
They got hold of a pumpkin and started' to play.
Well, they cut loose like sixty, at a gas meter rate, I
Each one had four cylinders, but they all hit on eight.
They shot and they dribbled, they banked and they fought,
They reversed and they traveled, they fumbled, they caught,
And about the same time there came a team, -
That hugged like bears at sweet sixteen.
T ' They rolled and they tumbled, and they pulled and they kicked,
And they never found ,out whether they won or was licked.
Well long towards spring it getspretty warm,
So they all don spikes and come out in a swarm.
' Well, some of them, ran, and somefried to trot,
But some didn 't know a dash from a dot. t
And when school was ended. they assembled the gang,
And they stood on the corner and saintly they sang'-
Football, Basket Ball, Wrestling and Track,
Perpetually calls for the strain of the back,
Our necks will stretch, and our ribs. will bend,
But we've had more fun, since I do11't know when.

Mr. Phillips, since his arrival at Elwood Hi, has encouraged and promoted
the principles of clean athletics. lieth the team and the school have begun to
show the real spirit. The courage to persist in getting the best of the oppon-
ents iii a winning way has come forward. He has made teams that have gone
forth and brought us many victories and each one has been clean fought and
greatly desired. ln the years that he has coached our athletics they have been
at their height- His work is well appreciated by the school and, by the players.

Not less spirited, were the efforts of Mr. Koontz, whose' conscientious ef-
forts toward keeping our athletes in trim, and keeping away the aches and
bruises, were nothing short of miraculous. While being trainer, Mr. Koontz
has also directed the wrestling team which has made wonderful progress. Oui

YELL y LEADERS
To yell, you have to have a erowd. We had that. To make them yell,
you have to have yell leaders. We had that. Their names are: "Mike,"
"Swede" and "Cliff" They made everybody throw away their enlbalmers
license and snap out of it. i
They injected pep into every human being that got in front of them, and
boy! How they could do it!
Yells, this year have been better than ever before, and were made that
Way, only through the conscientious work of these boys.
VVe have never had as good yell leaders before, and doubt if we'll ever
have better. Vtle think they are deserving of one of their own ovations.

vote of the squad. and will have his name engraved
on the loving cup.

Basket Ball this year was a huge success.
The largest crowds that ever witneessed an Elwood basket ball game,
were erowded into the armory this year.
Games were played with the eream of eomtpetition, and always Elwood
showed that she was able to eope with the best of them.
Elwood teams have gained a reputation of being- fighters every minute
ofthe game, and they not only held up that reputation this year-they boosted
Vietories were won over such teams as Huntington. Lapel, and Gary,
which certainly speaks well for our boys.
Hy tournament time, our boys were in the pink of condition and fought
their way to the finals of the sectional tournament, where they were defeated
by Lapel- Nevertheless, our boys went down fighting all the way, and deserve
the unbounded praise of our fair eity. I

OLLEGE and High School Annuals have
come to be recognized as an institution.
Year by year they are growing in import'
ance and number. They are growing, too,
in beauty and character, so that many high
school annuals now excel the books issued
s i from colleges a few years ago. In this ad'
vancement we have had no small part. For more than twenty'
five years we have been helping create representative annuals
for schools thruout the middle west and south and thru our helpf.
ful cofoperation have won a position of recognized leadership
among annual engravers. Last year three of our annuals won four
first and second prizes in state and national contests-a testi'
monial to our service of which we are proud. This is one of 154
annuals, published in eleven states, that bear the Indeeco imprint
this year. Not content to rest on laurels won we have worked
out plans to make our service to 1926 staffs more helpful than
ever. Editors, business managers or faculty advisors are invited
to write and give us opportunity to explain how Indeeco Service
can help them publish the best annual they have ever had.

lessj than the colossal size and weight of the elephant, man is
a mere mouse, but compared mentally, the elephant is a tumble-
A few grams of gray matter make man the master of the
elephant, the governor of servants, the controller ot' situafmns,

Therefore, it is the intellect. not the bo11e frame covered
with flesh and skin, that really counts in the last analysis.
And now that we have located the important item, the next
step is to firgl out what this man-intellect is actually doing. Is
it working for you or is it wo1'king against you? Is you brain
twisted toward just having a good time or is it working for you
and with you on a plan to be more and have more of the worth-
while things of life?
If your brain is busy trying to go through life having noth-
ing but fun you will find this '4fun" distressingly expensive
before you die. lf you have decided to work very hard and
have no "fun," you will always work.
The intelligent plan is to get so interested in your work
that it seems only "fun," and when this feeling comes creep-
ing over you, success is Just 'round the corner.

Your Income Goes Farther
4- If You Pay By Check -F
A checking account is absolutely necessary for effi-
cient handling of personal or family funds. In many
ways it helps you to get the most value from the
money you earn-helps you save.
First it removes the chance to lose money, to make
errors in change, or to pay bills twice. as a check is
always a receipt. Checks stop unnecessary, thought-
less purchases. They save time which is another Way
of saving money- They always show Where you
stand. And they alone make it possible to handle a
budget of funds. T
Then they give you the respect and valuable friend-
ship of a good Bank. And finally earn for you the
respect of the business people. Those are powerlful
aids that you can not afford,to overlook.
N o man or woman sincerely determined to get ahead
can afford to do without a checking account today.
The banker is one of your best friends. See him--
discuss it with hi1n. You are welcome in this Bank
whether your account is large or small.
