Willlcie took up his duties as superintendent of the Elwood schools. At that time the schools were not graded. The other teacher was Daniel King. In 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. Willlcie 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 heinc fifty-five enrolled. Mr. Meeks was made principal in '91 assisted hy Super- intendent Fitzgibbon in teaching. In October. 1891. asked for a commission. In replv to the reouest Ti. H. -Tones. superintendent of the Indianapolis schools visited the classes. He recommended the school for a commission.,complimentinfr the work of the Senior class in Geometry and Iiatin. Elwood secured its cf-inmissioon in the Fall of '92. 1 V 'II-I-' A small huildinrr ot eifrht rooms served first as a Hioh School and Grade school.

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 without effort. Indeed the motto of the "Crescent" 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, even as the "Cres- centl' 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 lncreasing ? ' ' Our year book has been increasing in value each year without increase in. price, it has set a standard, it is anideal. liiet us resolve that the motto "Ever lncreasiiig' will not only be the ideal of our High School annual but will lead us on to higher and nobler aims in our moral, intellectual, and religious careers so that the 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 Class 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 alld 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. I Joseph Hiatt-Editor-in-Chief. Page Twelve I Q 0 0 5511 4,- 131-anon The Board of Educatron The mainstay of the school system is the Board of Education. This re sponsible group claims little publicity, but it is 11ot always they that talk the loudest, whose influence is felt the most markedly. buch 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 affectinar the business of Education. 'lhc members of this board are: Mr. Luther Grose, presidentg 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 much-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.

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 uu- fathomable extent for the successful completion of our school life. MR. HUFF Fort the past three years Mr. Huff has steered us through the deep seas of our High School career in an extremely commendable manner. lle 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.

"Station E. H. S. broadcasting-" a voice announced, and we eagerly waited to hear what this familiar broadcaster, Supt. Smith, might have in store for us. t'At the time of this announcement Mr. Huff is abroad, making some rare collections in Venice. Harold liehynier, a substitute member of the faculty is capably filling this position as Principal. "Mr, ,llarsh has given up teaching and is 110W a famous director of plays -his most sensational work continues-"The 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 in a period. "A contest in French and Latin between Misses Beeson, Reese, and Foote, and lVlrs. Logan-Records, was to be held in the auditorium a few days ago, out Miss Foote nnew so many different languages that she was held ineligible and the contest was accordingly postponed until she has time to forget some of them. "Mr, liratli and Mr. Noble have perfected an experiment that enables communication Wltll Mars-they are now regarded as world famous and their resignation is expected in the near future. "Athletics still hold full sway over El Hi and Mr. Phillips, although now old and grey, is worliing 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. 'i "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. fContinued on page 1175 Page Nineteen ll 'K f S Q , 64" 45 ming IllllllIIllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllll lllllllll CRESCE NT 192, Q V 5 ' ire.

Our Faculty Tlllle speeds on, unhalting, unhesitating, taking as its companions, His- tory and Memory, each helping to make thc minds of 111911-S01ll9 great. some small-but each an individual masterpiece, dependent upon these essentials. To the Seniors, the precious time spent in the portals of our Alma Mater, has developed a sacred memory of our faculty, a cherished chapter of our life's history. Perhaps in previous years we would have hesitated to voiee sueh senti- ment, when-at times the grim hand of terror clutched at our hearts at the very thou,Q'ht of that staunch group. Then as we advanced in age and wisdom, we became conscious of the fact that our truest friends were among the faculty, and adviee was appree ciated when voiced by a faculty member. e Frequently, when during the course of our voyage on this sea-a storm would overtake us, and our frail bark would be tossed, bewildered and alone. until a beacon light guided us safely ashore. Then we realized the faculty was our friendly port. Now as the future is shining for our imaginative minds, we hesitate- desiringr to linger-to say one last Farewell-Godspeed, and thank you to the faculty, for having made success so apparent. We have fondest hopes that during' life, all friends may prove as true as you, our guides-our Faculty.

We 'can make our lives sublimeg And in parting leave behind us: Footprints upon the Sands of Timefi With these words of Henry Wadsxs'ortl1 Dongrfellow in mind. the Seniors of '26 entered Elwood High in nineteen hundred and twenty-two endeavor- ing to accomplish that task. The first year they. as Freshmen, were practically disregarded by the upper classmen after the merriment of the first few days was completed. Hut with the dawn of the Sophomore sun, life changed-the entire atmos- phere appeared different to them-for then they were permitted te orfranize as a class and Pllliflip their own leaders. The 2A's chose frreen and white as their class colors and the sweet pea as their flower. Tn turn. the followinfr semester the 2l2's selected the sweet pea and Chinese red and white Tn the course of this year the male members of the class won for it the distinction of class football champions, by defeating the strong Senior eleven in an exciting game, By the time the rank of Juniors was attained they considered themselves exceedingly important and set about to accomplish many extraordinarv feats. One of the most eminent was the winning of the class Rasketh-ill tournament. P i Y' Several social events were enjoyed by both elasses while at the same time each was furnishing a major portion to the activities of the school as well as reaping the honors of scholarship. Then they entered upon the Senior year and the name of dignified seniors was attached to them. The mid-year class chose George Haviland as president. Paul Pugh. vice president. and Vera Thatcher. secretary and treasurer. while the sprint: class selected Arthur Harrell. president. Joseph Hiatt, vice president. Marjorie Downs, secretary, and Dottie Castor. treas- urer. T in--' New their course has been completed. Their high school days are past. Each one must bear his own burdens now and it is with remorse that they say "Good-Bye." So in parting there is not a doubt but that their goal has been attained and that they "in parting leave behind them foot prints on the sands of time."

In the far distance the glittering realms of knowledge were barely vis- ible, but with great sincerity and enthusiasm they determined to master all obstacles that they wou'd encounter in reaching this promised land of know- ledge. With this unsurpassed school spirit they attained the rank of sophomores and the whole, of their responsibility was thrust upon them. Finally it became evident that they needed officers to care for their business a11d very capable officers did they choose. Time rolled on and they became Juniors, having acquired much ability along the line of debators, chemists. Lea Rah Yea Boosters, agricultural stars, history stars, Wrestlers, etc. They chose Mr. Koontz as their sponsor to guide them through the wild- erness of class parties, selecting class jewelry, and putting oil on troubled waters in class meetings. They elected Dan Johns as their leader, Ralph liroyles, his assistant, and Arthur Noble to care for the wealth of the class. ln athletics they were enthusiastic participants, furnishing a number of hard fighting men.

Half a year gone and it wasnlt so bad For now there were some much greener than we, So we studied, looked wise, and we got past The first milestone on Life's "Turbulent Sea." We gathered together in September, Oh, there was never a class so brainy, At hookey we played on sunshiny days And at home on the days that were rainy. l'm telling you now of the Sophomores "Beautiful but dumb" as the saying goes, But somehow most of us managed to pass But how-not one of us knows. Juniors are smart alecs, least they are now, But last year was an exception, of course. They put lots of pep in all the school clubs, And at athletic games shouted 'till hoarse. l've related how dumb most of us were, lt wouldn't be right to not mention these Those who have been our class maintays, The pupils who have garnered 4 E's. At last we come to the best of all, QAS all must know it's the Senior Classj "The best class that ever went through the school." He who says "Nay" has a lot of brass.

S., entered into our trials and duties of Freshmen late in the year of 1925 and now that the end of the school year is here there is nothing to do except give to the public the history of our worthy class. To many, especially our upper classmen, this history is already known, and like the facts learned under our faithful instruct- ors, will never be forgotten. 'But for the benefit of futu1'e generations we deem its advisable to tabulate the facts as they appear. We started in with a "vim" and a f'hang" like all other Freshmen amidst jokes and teasing, but we were told and would almost have been heart-broken had we not experienced the fun. Beneath the outward attitude of our loyal upper classmen there was extended to us a feeling of good fellowship and real sportsmanship which caused us to wake up and take notice that we would be the future admin- istrators of the E. H. S., hence our motto, 'iWll6T9 there is life, there are Freshmen," has characterized our every move throughout the year. We have endeavored to show the school as a whole that we have an interest in athletics which we consider was not surpassed by any other class. First, we furnished a number of worthy men for the teams who have proved to be very successful in their beginning career of athletics. Secondly, we have shown a worthy showing at the games to boost our athletics and have been faithful builders of sportsmanship. So with the hope that the Freshmen class of next year will 'do as well, we do this day lay down the name of Freshmen and take upon ourselves the more dignified name of Sophomore. lt is our fondest hopes that as Sopho- mores, we may lead all classes in every respect.

His complexion was rather florid and a brilliantly tinted nose graced or rather nestled in an enormous coffee strainer-but this has nothing to do with the story. lt was a midsnmmer night and a hot one. There were no customers in the saloon, so Beermugr took a little nap. "Yes Tt was right here where my sister met her death." Reermugr could dimly hear the words but he couldnit see any thinar.

Beermug grinned delightfully, He settled bael: and soon was fast asleep again. Thus was acknowledged the workings of Fate. The mosquitoes dropped to the blood-bedewed nose of Beermugr Bronson and were smashed in the awkward posture of their falls. The flames of their lives expired. and Death and Decay and Beermug Bronson held illimatable dominion over all. -Herman Helpling.

Some were perched on the arms of chairs, others draped gracefully over the staircase, and still others sat on the floor. All was dead quiet and each one seemed plunged into a deep, dark study. After a lapse of some fifteen minutes, one of the com- pany yawned loudly- "Ho, hum, hasu't anyoueaany ideas after all this time devoted to thought? Wllat a dumb crowd, Well, as for me, T'm going home. Every- one is dull company. Why can 't we find something interesting to do? Oh, well, no use to moan. Well, tra-la-la, everybody." 'Before anyone could stir, a veritable whirlwind came into the room in the shape of a small towsled person, with a face flushed with exercise and cheeks wet with rain. She excitedly scanned the bewildered faces around her and then, unable to keep her news a moment longer. she cried, "Well, are you all turned to stone or something? Why don 't somebody ask me what has happened?" "Oh, Gay, now don't get neeved. We haven't unite recovered from your unexpected appearance. Why all the hurry? Out with it. Bet a thousand, you 've got something up your sleeve." "'Course T have, silly. 'I'hat's the proper spirit. Gather closely and T will unburden my soul to you.

Hark ye, T crave the presence of eaeh and every one of you at my domicile on Thursday evening, dressed for hiking and don 't forget to take heavy sweaters, because it is bound to be chilly before we get back." 'Oh, Gay, I thought that you had a IIGXV idea. Gee, an old hike's no fun -besides we've had several already this spring." Gay whirled around until her eyes met those of a boy squarely and then she said with considerable heat, "All right, Ray Reed, you do11 't have Page Sixty-five I 4 'Y' ll " if mn-gnnunnnv nmnun I n I umm lfjlb 173 A 0 to come-but you will be cheating yourself out of a mighty good time." Four o'clock Thursday evening found a merry crowd assembled in front of Gay Liambert's home. As usual, Gay was the center of the laughing mob and her spritely tongue was in action also. For any jollification, Gay was always the one to be consulted, for she was the life of the crowd. The crowd started out in high humor and before the first mile was reached, all were singing hilariously to the metalic twang of' the banjo-ukes of various musically inclined members of the crowd. The hilarity was at its height when Gay sang out the order to stop. They had halted before a picturesque old brick house of marked colonial style. The old walls were thickly covered with ivy. The surrounding grounds gave evidence to the fact that it had been deserted for some time. Gay was already upon the stoop and turned around to her companions, "Right here is where we are going to have a party, isn't it the most ro- mantic-lookiiig spotlll' An hour afterward found all evidence of the feast cleared away and all the members of the party gathered in a little group around a blazing tire. ln the middle of a very tortuous solo being rendered by one of the aspiring young men, a dreadful crash sounded trom the next room. ln a moment all were on their feet and all crept toward the center of the room. Une of the boys got to the door before the rest of the party and Ilung open the door. Absolute darkness ,greeted the eyes of the fright- ened group. A flashlight was produced by one of the more resourceful youths and soon the interior of the room was bathed in light. There in the middle ot the room, sto-od a cat in the midst of the ruins of an old Water pitcher, staring snainefacedly at her discoverers. :shrieks or laughter rang throughout the old house, whose walls had known silence so long. That evening, on the road home, Gay said to the crowd, in an "I told you so" voice. "Well, l guess that was plenty exciting. You'll remember that to the end of your days. And what's more, I guess our "spook" put an end to the old bogey 'Boredom' for all time to come." -JEANETTE BABBITT H. S. Dictionary.

Out in the daisy-field she sat Witli her hair of shining gold, Pluckingr the petals of a daisy Having' her fortune told. He loves me, ah, he loves me not She repeated as she plucked them, And pulled the petals one by one Away from their slender stem. He loves me, ah, he loves me not And oft' had she repeated, A shame it was that one fair maid Could be so much conceited. A non she plucked the last fair one She now must yield to fate, For she had counted leaf by leaf And this was number eight. The maid then 'rose from this lone spot To find one much rarer, Off to a place where she could find A daisy's face much fairer.

The meet was good training for them too for the coming dual meet with Manual 'l'raining High of Indianapolis April 10. The Seniors had very little diffi- culty in winning the interclass affair. Elwood lost both the Manual meet and the triangular one with Technical and Shortrulgc but came back strong and won the triangular meet with Muncie and Alexandria. by 20 points. 'l'he first Madison Vonnty Track Meet was also won by Elwood by 25 points, taking the shield and a cup in the meet, Elwood then entered the Gary ltelays but her speed was not up to stand- ard. llowever, Edmond Jones entered the half mile race in which SP3 other prominent runners were entered and won first. The Reilly team also e11ter- ed the Kokomo Relays, but was defeated. The sectional was held here May 16. Elwood won first. with 29 points against fourteen other schools. Jones tmile and half milej, Virgil thigh and 10W hurdlesj, Mays Qquarter milej, Stoker tpole vaultj, lung Qshot putj, and Murphy, Haas, Jones, Virgil Qrelayj, qualified for the state meet. ln the state meet N lrgil scored 8 points for his team by placing second in both high and low hurdles.

And the skill that he had to heal their aches and pains will never he for- gotten by the athletes. 'l'l1e wonders that he has accomplished in wrestling is a miracle. Com- ing to a school that had never taught wrestling before, he turned out such a team, as had never been known in this part of the state. ln fact, so good was it that it won the State Championship of '26, He has 11ot only shown his ability as a coach, but as a teacher, and as an "all round good fellow." He is a teacher of English in Elwood High. By his good nature, his keen sense of humor, his practical mind, and his general heartiness, he has made a niche in our hearts that will never he forgotten.

All was set for an auspicious opening Saturday, September 10, with Kokomo as the victim. Although handicapped by a muddy field the locals made a fine showing. Kokomo made her only score on a place kick. Blume and Hyde accounted for Elwood's scores. Richmond, 143 Elwood, 0. Elwood lli journeyed to defeat Saturday, September 19. Because of the intense heat many time outs were called. Riehmond's scoring came only in the nirst half. The second half was played on even terms to a Oi-0 score. Mooseheart, 62, Elwood, 0. The above two teams clashed at Moosehcart on Indiana day, September 24. The trip took the form of an excursion fourteen coaches strong, but Elwood could not repeat her performance of last year, and the boys were outclassed, hut not defeated. Emerson, Gary, 17, Elwood, 0. Although again defeated the Red and Blue showed marked improve- 111e11t and held the state champs scoreless for three-quarters of the game. A fumble in the first quarter proved costly. Iresko made a touchdown for Elwood but it did not count as Elwood was caught holding. Page Seventy-six f aff' Jil' ,P A CRESCENT 192.6 W2 ' ' "ln Shortridge, 20, Elwood, 13. The last ininnte of play was disastrous for ltllwood. Striker ran sixty-five yards for a touchdown on the t'irst kiek-off. l4llwood's passing: was very good in this granie. The last quarter started with a 13-lil deadloek. Scoring on a pass in the last minute won the g-anne for Shortridge. Technical, 135 Elwood, 9. This game was played in a sea of mud and since only straight football could be used, the Tech advantage of weight won tln-in the granie. Elwood made many good gains and her defense was good. VW play tln-in again. Let's fight. Greenfield, 7g Elwood, 0. The Raed and Blue nlayed Greenfield, October 21. lfesko and f'lvde were out with injuries and King' and Morris were given a ehanee.

"Hayneck," '23, '24, '25. "Hayneck" was our fighting tackle. He was always first through the line and had a reputation for getting hi man. The squad voted him the most valuable player and his name will be engraved on the football lov- ing cup. RAYMOND HARTING. "Dutch," '24, '25. "Dutch" is our pass snatching end. Very few end runs were made around his end for he was a terror. He has another year. VVatch him go. JOSEPH CLYDE. "Joe," '24, '25. "Joe" was the hard hitting plough- ing little fullback who was known all over the state. On backing up the line he was a wizard. "Joe" also played tackle at times, where he fought hard. EDMOND STRIKER. "Eddie," '24, '25. "Eddie" was one of our strong half- backs, though light in weight he made it up in grit and hard fighting spirit. He was best on open field running where he was clever-ask Shortridge. JESSE THATCHER. "Jess," '25, Although a very small man for his position, "Jess" was a wonder on defense, and could also snatch passes when called on. He has a grim de' termination and fighting spirit which is sure to win. Ml, i WILLIAM BAXTER. "Bill," '25. "Bill" was one of our fast guards. Although a Freshman and inexperi- enced, he won for himself a place on the all state third team. He cer- tainly has lots of fight. Watch him next year. GEORGE WERSHING. "Buck," '25. "Buck" was the other big guard on Elwood's line, and he too is a Fresh- man. He had plenty of fight and a hobby of recovering fumbles. "Buck" did his part in establishing Elwood's reputation for Freshie guards of cali- ber. f-- .0 0 WILLIAM SEWARD. V. "Bill," '25. "Bill" was a small but mighty quar- terback. His headwork was clear and he pulled the team out of many holes. He was a close friend of "Captain Ha.yneck" and they were' always planning for the good of the team. DAVID RICHARDS. "Di," "Goat," '24, '25. "Di" broke his arm in the first game this year and his loss was felt keenly. He certainly was a wonder rt roving center, and has been named captain for next year's team. JOHN LESKO. "Eva," '24, '25. "Johnny" was handicapped by an injured knee but his fighting spirit carried him on. He was noted for his long swinging end runs-ask Gary. He wasvery fast and once sta1'ted was hard to get. Page Seventy-nine Page Eighty PAUL JARRETT. "Pickles," '25. When Richards was injured at the first of the season "Pickles" jumped right in and took his place in fine style. He was light but made it up in fight. He has another year- watch him go. ' RALPH HIGH. "High," '26. "High" is a Senior but made an able substitute this year at guard and tackle. At Greenfield he played a nice game. Would that he had an- other year. HENRY LESKO. "Hen," "Hiney," '25. "Hen," Oh, "Hen" get that man, well he usually was underneath with his man firmly in his power. He made a mighty good man at tackle this year and has another, so that we expect great things from him. WAYNE KING. "Kingy," '25. "Kingy" was our substitute half- back and he ripped off some nice end runs. He is a Freshman and one of next year's promising men. JOSEPH MORRIS. "Joe," '25. "Joe" is another of our promising Freshies. He was substitute fullback this year, Where he showed up nice- ly, playing like a veteran. Three more years "Joe."

"Bill" was our center and although smaller than the most of centers he got the tip on the best of them. He swished the draperies with the ease of an "old timer." Billy-boy has three more years. Let's go. JOSEPH CLYDE. "Big Joe," '25, '26. "Joe" was the main cog in this year's quintet and can be rated as one of the best backguards in the state.

Here are no wise, old men with beards of gray, But High School students blithe and gilyi Nor do they in solemn conclave sit To dole out words of wisdom and of wit. They oft may seem on nought but frolic bent. Yet work, mayhap, is with their mischief blent. For they are busy folks with studies grave, Yet from their labors, many minutes save To spend in fruitful effort on "their book," Where on their fellow students oft will look With thanks to them, for hoarding thus the treasure Of busy High School days, with all their pleasure, In after years will call again to mind The talents, pranks and Winsome ways that bind Fond memory to friends of long ago Ere age had given the feeble step and slow.

As every one knows, thisvis strictly a high school project, lts object is to print items of interest to the students. The paper has been highly successful all the year and, through the hon- est efforts of the faculty adviser Mr. Myers, and the hearty co-operation of the staff as a whole, it has been possible to get the paper out every two weeks Without fail. A good circulation among other schools has been built up and E. H. S. is known in many prominent schools all over the state through the paper. The code has been fair and square dealing with all people concerned. The object of the Forge has been to furnish a record of the happenings that will some day mean a lot to each student. Many obstacles have presented themselves, but through the unceasing labor and good will, they have been overcome. Such a record is one of which to be proud and should be a source of pride to every student.. Page Ninety-two ff N ' N-,N-,vi ,x,. N g f 3 gl'A5I5jgj J fn.

Page Nine-tyt-six The Radio Clulb There are, within the gates of our sehool, some organizations of which little is heard. This tact. however, makes them none the less important. The first of these is the Rradio Fluh. As may be gathered from the name, it was organized for the purpose of delving into the mysteries of the air and learning more definitely about certain puzzling: facts. Not: only for this reason did this group of enterprising' young men or- ganize, but also to get whatever pleasure that they eould from this source of work. At first, Mr. Kratli was sponsor of this eluh, then with the Cllllllllgl' of Mr. Champion, the club was handed over to him. Not much is heard ol' them hut they report fine progress with their work and are content to pursue their activities with very little publieity.

As has ever been its custom, the music has been rendered true to form, in a splendid manner. lt has been the aim of this organization to devote its time to the study of the works of the masters and to learn to give th em with all the expression possible and to attain as near the degree of perfection as is in their power. It has also been the desire of this organization to please all classes of people. For this reason, both classical music and semi-popular selections were within the scope of these musicians.

Improvements along every course are made in like manner along with the regular branches of our school of learning. These changes are essential as we become more modern as time goes steadily on-on to the Sea of Eternity. Probably the most recent achievement, along our regular academic course, is the class which has been organized in Public Speaking. This class, under the direction of Mr. Myers and Mr. Harsh, has made splendid pro- gress during its brief period of duration in our school. Another branch of modern essentials is our class in Commercial. These classes are under the supervision of Miss Marcia Sneed who gives attentiml to all commercial subjects. Advanced Shorthand, Typewriting and Commer- cial Law are the most vital in connection with this work. A large number of eligible students entered these classes and are making use of the splendid opportunity of preparing for life in a truly business-like manner. The "Tillers of the Soil" are educated in an individual manner as well as any other type. There is a large class in Vocational Agriculture. under the direction of Palmer -T. Davis. This is a complete course and requires the extent of several periods a day. while various experimcnts are conducted. According to the different seasons, Projects are chosen by the students. each individual having a definite project in mind and following it accordingly. ln order that this work be made very interesting, field trips. as well as laboratory research. form very important parts in the regular schedule. At the close of each year the classes in vocational. of the various neighboring counties. compete in a. conference, that is similar to a fair. This has proven very beneficial and has promoted friendly rivalry among the schools. Along with such special educational classes, our class of Manual Train- ing is very commendable. Advanced shopwork, supervised by Mr. House. has been the most prominent improvement during the past year. The shop work of this course is very educational to the boys who make use of the advantages offered. Practical as well as artistic pieces of ftrniture are constructed, and each year many of these are exhibited to the piblic. Such a course is vital to the common education of any youth, and consequently there is a very large class in this department. The classes of Home Economics, for the girls, run parallel to the classes of Vocational and Manual Training. No science is older than that of cook- ing and none is more fundamental to the human welfare.

As a result several of them have come to light. At the beginning of the year Mr. Myers has chosen as sponsor for this worthy body of energetic young people. No better choice of sponsor could possibly have been made and all members were more than satisfied. Owing to many difficulties, the club has not been so active this year as in preceding years. This, however, does Il0t indicate lack of inter est, merely lack of time. Such a society as this is almost a necessity in any school because it fur- nishes the pi mper kind of instructions necessary to become a clear thinker and speaker The members, of the society are greatly attached to it and will always be interested in its progress. Many of the members are Seniors and will be leaving' soon. Despite this, they will have the interest of the club at heart at all times. .

Tl1is worthy society has increased its activities and covered a larger field tha11 in any one of the five in which it has been an important factor in the school. The purpose of such an organization is primarily to bring: teacher and par- ent together. After this is achieved, the result will, undoubtedly be a new and greater understanding' between these two factions. Each of these two groups are vitally interested in the lives that are being fashioned under their care and guidance. In such a society, the interests of teacher and parent blend and become as one, The splendid things accomplished this year are too numerous to men- tion. After all, such deeds have no need to be enumerated, for they are not to be soon forgotten. The Choruses While speaking of Music, we must not omit the choruses, for they have been quite important. The fine music that they have made merits much praise. Harmony is the thing to be attained in any good musical organiza- tion and they have worked diligently to master that necessary factor. We are forced to admit that they certainly have done splendid work. Page One Hundred Three 51 41111 62 nmmnl 'u""""' ""'l"' Uur Alumni Among our most treasured memories are the friends we l1ave had. In our high school life these friends are spoken of as the alumni. Some of the proudest events in our lives are associated with these people whom we are unable to forget, though many are far away from us. Elwood High School has tried to keep in touch with her former charges as best she could. Most of them have been sufficiently interested to write and let their whereabouts and occupations be known. The school has set up certain standards throughout the years. These standards have been before the eyes of students at all times. lt is a source of much joy and pride to the instructors and officials to know that mem- bers leaving the school have tried to uphold the teachings of the institution in which the formative period of their lives have been passed. Many of our alumni are doing good work in their various lines of activity. ln this, the instructors have not been disappointed. Our bright and shining stars in class are now the bright lights in the business life, teaching profession and several other fields. An unforgetable fact about these ex-students is that they are all vitally interested in the school and its doings and problems. We owe much to our alumni and we that soon will be listed among them can only hope that we may be as fine as they have been. Page One Hundred Four .i-, .

" 2.., Our Advertisers We truly appreciate the splendid co-opera- tion of the Elwood Merchants and Profession- al Men as shown by their ready response to our efforts to obtain advertisements for the '26 Crescent. But Why do business men advertise? For much the same reason that one puts gasoline in a Ford. To make it go. Then can they not reasonably expect returns from their invest- ment? Therefore, students of E. II. S. since the Crescent is your book make it your duty to show your appreciation by patronizing those merchants who have helped make its publica' tion possible. Page One Hundred Seven CRESCENT vnu ff " CRESCENT l9?.o MORE OR LESS TRUE, A man is unreasonable. ,He will expect his wife to thank him for help- ing wipe the dishes after he has dropped and broken three of her best china cups. Now and then we meet a couple who make use wonder how the heck the laughing hyena happened to mate with the gentle little lamb. Intuition may enable a woman to ,judge a man, but it d0esn't help her any in judging' time. The woman who has an expensive clock in every room of the home never arrives any more promptly than the woman who depends upon the alarm clock on the kitchen shelf that hasn't been wound for a week. What the mother of a couple of flapper daughters would like to know is what they mean by talking about slavery having been abolished. A man who has his hard-boiled mother-in-law living with him is willing to admit that women are as tender-hearted as the executioners during the Spanish lnquisition. A house doesn't need painting more than once in five to ten years- and that, in our judgment, is often as most girls should be. That the hard jobs lead t.o the soft snaps. --" Dutch" Goodknight. Ei.
