 The Crescent PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF THE EL WOOD HIGH SCHOOL VoL XL 1927Time lias brought us all into our present status in Elwood High School. Time is speeding onward and is swiftly drawing our high school days to a close. Time will gradually force these happy days farther and farther in the obscurity of distance. Other memories will assail our minds and cause high school incidents to fade into a somewhat dim but fond background. In order to bring that pleasant background into happy relief the staff has prepared this book, attempting to depict a year of high school life. Now, completed we raise the curtain upon “The Crescent” of 1927.To the business and professional men and women of Elwood, in appreciation of their assistance and encouragement of our every activity, we, the Class of ’27, do dedicate this 1927 issue of “The Crescent.” i I to .The Contents Book 1—Administration. Book II—Classes. Book III—Literary. Book IV—Activities. Book V—Athletics. Book VI—Jokes and Advertising.Arthur Noble Mildred McCarty Dan Johns Ralph Broyles Robert IIopp Theodore Higgins Carrol Heath Marjorie Monroe Ruth Huff Robert Ilumke Jeanette Nuzum Harold Sowash Joseph Pihe Sarah Griffiths William Jones Bernice Beaty. Virginia McDermitt Robert OsbornEver Increasing Let us pause a moment to consider tlie significant1 of those two words. First, “ever,” which means continually, at all times, without ceasing. Next is “increasing” which signifies growth or expansion. Now, putting the two together we catch a glimpse of their true import. Can we quite grasp the meaning of continually growing, of expansion at all timesV jmicii activity must be the cause of unlimited progress. Yet for several years tne “Crescent” has been living up to that motto. Its growth and expansion has been continual. It seems that a better motto could not have been found. Since the “Crescent is a chronicler of high school events, it is evident that the progress of the annual would naturally go hand in hand with the progress of the school. Midi has been the case. In enrollment, in cirricular, in athletics, in activities, in practically every phase oi her existence our oiu school has been “Ever increasing.” Even the size oi the building is increasing. From the entrance to the exit of our high school life we are increasing and expanding our knowledge. Along with our studies we are gaining a broader and fuller outlook upon life. Our intellectual conceptions during ihis time are ever increasing. The motto “Ever Increasing” is adaptable we see not only to the “Crescent but to almost every phase of our school liie. May we strive to maxe our lives trorn now on as much in accordance witn this motto as the nave during our high school days. —Arthur Nobie. Well, here is the Crescent of 1927. You may like it, and then again you may not. Whether or not please remember this; no staff can make a successiui annual without the co-operation of the laeulty and student body. 'Tins year that support has been forthcoming. Yve wish to here take the opportunity to thank each and every person who has in any way aided us toward making a successiui annual. The affiliations with the liarnden studios, 'The Fort Wayne rmgravmg Co. and The Eiwood Call Leader; have also done much toward making a better Crescent. So here it is for better or for worse. If you like it, congratulate the staff, and the persons who have helped them. If you don’t, why then somebody is to blame—I wonder who? Page Ten Arthur Noble, Editor-in-Chief.AimtiniatratumThe foundation of the school is found in these people who are always planning something better for this educational institution of ours. The present board is a very capable one and have shown their ability in many ways. They are: Mrs. I. A. Holton, President. Dr. Wayne Dean, Secretary. Mr. Lee Landon, Treasurer. One of the most important actions that they have brought about this year is the constructing of the new addition to our school building. This is one of the most needed, and when finished will be the most appreciated work that the Board of Education has given us for some time. Page Thirteen) ) FACULTYMr. Huff Mr. Huff, our principal, under whose watchful eye the school carries on its work, is a most efficient man. We all, especially the Seniors, have much to thank him for. It was he to whom went as Freshmen to get set back on the right track. lie has guided us through the ensuin' years of our High School life. May his fine leadership, an good work continue! Mr. Smith Mr. Smith, our beloved and popular superintendent, enjoys to see other people happy. No school event is complete without him. We wish that he could be with us more. By his untirin' work he has made Elwood High one of the best schools in Indiana. We hope that we may en joy his presence here for man; more happy years. Page Fifteen“School is out,” the laddie cried; “No more of books for me!” “I’ve graduated,” said the youth, “And taken my degree.” When looking backward two-score, he said, “Experience cost me dear.” But what was once a mystery dark, “Seemed now to him quite clear.” The old man said. “There’s much to learn.” When age had touched his brow. “Tf lifp vvere tnine to live asrain, I’d know much better how.” For all of Life is but a book And school days never o’er. We turn the pages day by day And over lessons pore. Some pages show a picture fair. Aligbt with goodly pleasure— Wpl.oarned sn»p«ss. sweet victories won, Or blessings without measure. And then a page is stained with tears As failure meets our gaze. For we have e’er a Teacher wise, Who leads in devious ways. We sometimes break the bidden law. Then smart ’neatli chastening rod. We seem so wise, we fain would walk Without the help of God. But they who live in simple faith And eon their lessons well. Will strive to learn from all they see, And all with whom they dwell. And when at last the book is closed. And lessons all are learned, They’ll hear the Teacher say, “Well done.” And take the prize they’ve earned. —Lena M. Foote. Page SixteenThe Faculty of EFHi The principal of El-IIi is Mr. Huff, His main hobby is watches and we think that’s enough. Mr. Harsh is the main supervisor in English today, He tells the same old jokes over, so we’ve heard students say. There’s Miss Cox, who in History gives us no rest, Because she’s so short, and so hard are her tests. Miss Grosswege we hear is superior, and specializes in math. And says when our books get dirty to give them a bath. Mrs. Records’ aim mieux le francias and piles on dictations hard But when we get through with our French, we know we have a trump card Miss Foote as we say is the opposite. She is kidlike herself And in Latin when it comes time you must remove your book from the shelf. There’s Miss Welborn who teaches Economics and no one could be sterner Than she is when she takes from a book a quotation from a man they call “Turner. ” Miss Thurston teaches mathematics and loves to fun at you poke But when you pull something over her eyes it’s not such a big joke. Miss Spencer, a teacher of English, likes the boys so it’s said And when she gets started to talking she makes the wheels whirl in your head. She teaches Commercial, does this Miss Sneed, We know these are subjects which we all need. While Davis, lie teaches the boys from the farm How to make the crops grow, and to do varmints harm. Mr. Ashton teaches history in room thirty-eight, Where he doth sojourn from early till late. Mr. Brown, another teacher of English; he is nothing like the last He is so bashful and hearty and will not stand to be sassed. Mr. Forney a teacher in math, and chewing gum he does detest. And when he sees some in your mouth it seems he can’t peacefully rest. And there is Mr. Noble, Science teacher in EUTi And for co-opration he says, “Go to Mr. Kratli-” Messrs. Phillips and House run together as like as two seeds in a hop One is an athletic director and the other one works in the shop. Mr. Champion knows his onions, that’s what 1 hear them say And we hope he remembers that blossoms bloom in May. Misses Miller and Koons in school are at opposite doors Teaching the future wives of the men how to sewing and cooking adore. Miss Jackson “Supervisor of Music” stands with her baton Tn front of a student audience and says, “Now let’s go on.” Miss Benedict is a marvel in Art, and paints pretty pictures they say She may be a Raphael tomorrow but let it be what it may.

Our Faculty We all, when we enter high school regard the faculty as a necessary evil. They seem to cause the students more worry and fretting than all other troubles combined. They seem to have the idea that a student should work while in school. And then there are so many harmless diversions forbidden in school, such as chewing gum, writing notes, etc. As we travel on through our eight semesters we come to have more and more respect for our teachers, and less awe. They help us when we are in trouble, and want to see us succeed. The fact slowly dawns on us that they are humans. We begin to see their problems in a different light, and only then do we appreciate them. We feel that the faculty of E- H. S. have given us their best, and that they deserve much praise. We wish to tell you, teachers, that we appreciate everything that you have done for our benefit and help and we thauk you one and all from the bottom of our hearts. May your good work continue! Page Twenty-oneJtOfTftfr y um (ClassesSenior Class History In nineteen hundred twenty three the Seniors of ’27 entered this building of ours, commonly known as Elwood High School. They had four years of hard work ahead of them, and they knew it, so it didn’t take long for them to buckle down to good hard work. During the first year most of them did study quite a great deal. The fall of ’24 came and no longer were we Freshmen. High School began to mean something else except a place for work only. The class organized for the first time. The A class chose Lawrence Goodknight as president; Vivian Gallager, as his assistant; Louise Kincaid, as secretary, and Winifred White as custodian of finances. The spring class' elected their leader to be Kalph Broyles, with Barbara Smith in second place. Uda Adam;, was to record all happenings and Arthur Noble was to hoard the shekels. When the Junior year rolled around the class was fast coming into its own. Our boys were winning places on the athletic teams, we were piaymg a more active part in all phases of school life. We then began to see that E. H- S. would not get along very good if it wasn’t for us. Why, we would be Seniors in only one more year! A few changes were made in the officiating line up for this year, Bennett Lamb taking his place in the chair of the nudyead ciass; Winitred White was made secretary-treasurer of this group. Dan Johns ascended to the presidency of the spring class, and Kalph Broyles became vice-president. Then came the Senior year! This was our year of years. We began to feel very sorry for the High School after we were gone. We were the honored class. It was members of our class who held most of the honors around school. We were the athletes, the dramatists, the debators, the musicians of El- ii. We might have been proud or dignified if we had been so inclined. But we weren’t, ask the Freshies if you don't believe me. The officers for this last year were: For the mid-year class Bennett Lamb, president; Louise Kincaid, vice-president and Winifred White, secretary-treasurer. The officers of the spring class were as follows: Marjorie Monroe, president; Kobert Humke, vice-president; Henry Lesko, secretary, and Dorothy Kantner, treasurer. The members of both classes have now brought their high school days to a close. We only hope that in our sojourn here we have helped dear old El-IIi to progress ahead just a little farther. If we have then we are satisfied and we leave her with a sigh of regret, wishing that we were not departing so soon- Page Twenty-fiveThe Class of 27 Musicians, artists, and poets. Whichever the case may be; Debaters, speakers, and players Entered in ’23. We entered only as freshies, To make for ourselves a name, And in every line of work We acquired both glory and fame. We chose “old rose and silver,’’ To blend with the red and blue, For to our Elwood High Each was loyal and true. “Tint your own skies,” And the modest little “sweet pea” Were chosen by this Senior Class Long famous for fuu and glee. The parties and receptions; The fun of our Senior year, Hut all too soon the time has come, Ah, Yes! Its drawing so near. IIow fast the days have passed; Those days so cherished by all, Yes! friends, teachers and lessons We now so fondly recall. Alas! the day is here When we must say good-bye, We, the Class of ’27 Who now must leave El’ Hi.’ —Lucille Dalton.

Though this class is not large in number it is considered an exceptionally brilliant class. It has, as a whole, been willing to do its part for the betterment of Elwood High School. To show its very efficient ability during a class meeting in the year nineteen hundred twenty-six, it chose for sponsor of the class Miss Hanna. The Lily of the Valley was chosen as the class flower, and gold and silver for the Class colors. Their motto is ‘Rowing not Drifting.” The following officers were chosen: President—June Patchet. Secretary—Mary Daniel. Vice President—Louise Riobbins. Treasurer—Christine Patchet. There were a few changes made for the year 1927- It was voted upon to keep the same officers for the coming, year. The Lily of the Valley is still looked upon as the class flower. Green and white are now the class colors. It was agreed by the class to keep their motto. The class chose Miss Clara Nuzum as their sponsor for 1927. Under her capable leadership the class is rapidly progressing. Page Forty-twoJunior History In September, nineteen hundred twenty four, the members of this great class passed through the portals of Ehvood High School. By gazing upward it seems they could but dimly see the top step on the Ladder of Learning but this became brighter as they conquered the obstacles of the first year and gained the first step on th« ladder. As Sophomores they organized, assuming the responsibility of caring for themselves. These chose Virginia McDermitt as their leader. Charles Snodgrass was chosen secretary, and Joe Mesalam, treasurer. The class flower selected was the American Beauty Rose and the class colors, rose and silver. Their motto was “Simplicity, Sincerity and Service.” The time soon came again to elect new officers. Pauline Tolle was elected president, and Worth Dellingch her assistant. Charles Snodgrass was chosen secretary-treasurer. Pauline Tolle resigning as president at the end of the first semester, Worth Dellinger became president and Virginia McDermitt was elected his assistant. The social event of the year was a Hallowe’en Party- The top step of the Ladder of Learning becomes brighter still as these students are now entering on their last year. Truly, the great happiness comes from the knowledge of a task worth while well done, therefore, let us continue toward it! Page Forty-three3 Sophomores This group of illustrious pupils who entered the portals of El-IIi in ’25 compose our present second year class of Sophomores. This group as you have probably already observed is no ordinary assemblage of individuals, which fact was quickly brought to light soon after their arrival as Freshmen, the Seniors acknowledging this fact to the degree of omitting the customary Ritual Rites of Initiation. These distinguished persons upon serving their “probation” year and promoted to the degree of Sophomore, assumed tlie air of lord toward vassal and demanded due recognition from the humble Freshmen, which they received in awe and wonderment from this downtrodden race. To lead them on their pompous journey the fall class elected Anne Lois Hiatt president; Geraldine Wiles, vice-president anti Mary Francis Johnson, secretary-treasurer. The mid-year class chose as their dignitaries Helen Powell president, Joe Warner vice-president, Clyde Kochman secretary- and Byron Tubbs as treasurer. This class will compose our graduating class of ’2!) and our dignified Seniors for the same year. We feel that they have made a very fine start in preparing themselves for this exalted degree and to be the guiding lights of our institution. Page Forty-sevenFreshman This is not a class history. How could it he when the Freshies have no history? They are for the present and the future only, as far as we are concerned, they have only been with ns for the past nine months. They simply are. We don’t know much to say about them except that they, like every Freshman class since the beginning of our notice, are the largest, most promising, most studious, class etc., etc. There are a lot of other things in which they are the most proficient, according to a Senior, but we’ll refrain from mentioning those things. We will say that they far excel the upper-classmen in conduct and studiousness, but they will get over that along with the rest of their faults. As a matter of course we suppose they will be Sophomores next year, and then their troubles will begin (they will then have a class of Freshmen to look down upon). Well, good luck to the class of ’30! Page Fifty-oneiLitevaru3 No More Skating for Minnie Minnie was a small jrirl weighing about 250 pounds. Her beau had convinced her that the only way to reduce was by exercising. She decided skating was “all the rage” so she determined to learn. It was on Sunday afternoon when she entered the skating rink. “Where can I get a pair of skates,” she inquired. “I’m the fellow you’re looking for. Are you an experienced skater or do you need an. instructor?” inquired he. “Well,” said Minnie, “I have never skated before. As it is Sunday I thought I would come and take a few lessons.” When Minnie entered the rink, she was much astonished to see how so many of the girls were learning to skate. “Oh, it will be quite easy,” she said, as the man fastened her skates to her feet. The man politely lifted her to her feet. “Oh, I’m slipping! Catch me quick!” she cried. “Now, mistress, just remember that I am right at your assistance and you’ll be skating like the rest in a little while.” It did look easy but of course everything isn’t as easily done as it looks. While Minnie waited to be helped to the circle of skaters her instructor was called away. She was left standing alone. Just then one of those “feather bed lames,” much larger loan ner»eu came nutiering by. As she passed Minnie, she gave her a push. Minnie did not know what to do. She began yelling at the top of her voice, “I’m losing by equilibrium.” A small boy who was passing by said, “Never mind, lady. Maybe you can skate better without it.” At that instant the floor came up and met Minnie with a “bang.” A man standing by went to her assistance. With much exertion he pulled her from the floor. He was getting ready to teach her to skate, but she said. “No, thanks, mister, no more skating for Minnie.” —Margaret Taylor. Page Fifty-nineThat Awful Dread It was Saturday evening at dusk, and Lorna tired, and restless was leaning idly over the front garden gate. Darkness was fast approaching and the sun was slowly sinking beyond the great western horizon. A twig snapped, and tlie soft pit-a-pat of feet came slowly on. Nesta robed in clinging white, parted the boughs, waved and called to her friend. 1 he girls set about hastily to make some tea and another enjoyable evening soon passed away. Once more the girls were strolling down the lane to the old oak tree where they always parted. “Oh! Lorna, I’ve a surprise, such a lovely surprise for you. Marilyn is giving a lawn party at six o’clock and we’re both invited.” ‘‘Oh! Nesta, I’m so glad, but—but 1—” Giving a startled look at Nesta she disappeared into the darkness. Nesta wondering at her unusual actions, turned, and proceeded homeward. In the meantime Lorna had rushed down by the weeping willow where she fell with a sob. ‘ Why couldn’t 1 go just once. Oh! why?” At length she fell asleep amid the frightful visions that were hovering over her. All was quiet in the woods, and the moon alone, seemed to be watching over Lorna. Something swept across her face, only a low branch yielding to the gentle breeze. She awoke with a start, where was she? She remembered, ah! that dread. She arose and slowly wended her way back to the house. Avoiding the dreaded room she quietly slipped up the little back stairs to her room. She began to inspect various garments in her cedar chest. There was a lovely lace dress that would be ideal for the lawn party. ‘‘Could there be no possible means for escape?” Lorna was the eldest of eight children and very pretty with lovely chestnut curls and big blue eyes that matched her soft fair skin. But why was she pretty? It only made it harder for her to be content in this dismal room. Wanting to get as much rest as possible in case some unforeseen luck should aid her to escape she turned out the light and went to bed. Sunday dawned a beautiful day and the melodious chirping of the birds awakened Lorna from her troubled sleep. She had even dreamed of that Page Sixty3 awful dread, there were so many of them. She arose and assisted with the morning work, always careful to dodge the room she dreaded. Ten o’clock found her again in the little room but now she was heading over some old love letters. Even this could in no way help to console her. As the time for the party drew nearer and nearer her inward grief became greater. She looked at her watch, it was new two o’clock. She had cried, she had prayed and she had hoped. Could it be that no oil" was coming to her rescue? The time surely was flving, for it was five e’cleeP and still nothing t" brighten her young life. She walked over to the window and looked out. She could only visualize the gaiety of the lawn party. Six o’clock came. The suspense was too great for Lorna. In desperation she threw herself on the bed and gave way to tears. That awful dread was becoming more menacinar everv minute. “Oh” thought Lorna, “If T could escape, for only once.” Hut the terrible consequences seemed inevitable. Then Lorna’s mother entered the room. “Wliv. Lorna, you haven’t begun to get ready yet! Ilurrv up, and T’ll do the dishes.” Lorna jumped up with a joyous cry, and threw her arms around he" mother’s neck. The unexpected had happened For once she was freed from “that awful dread.” —Lucille Dalton. Springtime and School The season that comes first of all the year, Ts nature’s time for her annual rebirth. A little rivulet is trickling near, So free and full of bubbling, care-free mirth. The grass and flowers peep out so green and gay. And all the outdoor world seems calling me. But in the schoolroom I must bravely stay, Until the ’lectric bell rings half-past three. Compar’d to nature’s beauty, very bare Doth seem the schoolrooms, and so hot they gro— While outside is the cool and fragrant air; And yet I guess in school I’ll stay, for lo— With study and in knowledge more mature, I can more enjoy the beauty of nature. —Robert Dickey.

As to writing sonnets—I can’t do it! Some people can sit and write some lines, Some pretty and up to the times, But I have to sit and moan and sigh For I couldn’t write sonnets if I were to die! So T’ll cast my genius in some other way, Perhaps with my Science the world I will sway, But there’s always one thing to be left undone, And for me sonnet writing will be that one! —Mary Constance Stine.

T’m happy in the school room, I’m happy on the street, I’m happy with my dear old friends No matter where we meet. I always will be happy This is the reason why Because of all the dear friends In good ol’ El wood High. T love the name of Elwood It’s always been my home, And should I ever go away I’m sure again I’ll come. Right back to dear ol’ Elwood This is the reason why— For it is always “Springtime” In good ol’ Elwood High. —Bonnie Harrell. Page Sixty-seven3 Ye Olde Tyme Pome ’Twas long ago, When ships were slow; That Pete, the Shiek, His love did show. His maiden fair. With curly hair, Her subtle charm, a false alarm Was but his share. Across the stream, Lived his sunshine beam; A beauty indeed, but going to seed. Of her he dreamed. His wife had died Upon the tide. And now his love, his turtle dove, Would be his bride. The stream he crossed, He must be tossed On a nest of loveliness. And by her be bossed. He took her hand. And slipped the band. “Now you and me. in company, Will take our stand.” With force she said, “No line you’ll spread. My answer’s, No, you’re not my beau.” Then he dropped dead. ■—Theodore Higgins Page Sixty-eight i rtitiitics3 And here we are to our activities! What would life be in “El Hi” without them? I’m sure we would think it very dull at times- True, they put the spiee in our school life and season our school routine which otherwise seems flavorless. To be sure there are some of us who become so absorbed in our studies that we would be more satisfied without these extras. But for the great majority of us, we enjoy them almost (notice I say “almost”) as much as we do our Latin, or Math, or Physics. Interest in extra curricular activities has been growing for several years. This year has been no exception. Compulsory membership in clubs was one of the big factors in causing such a rise of interest this year. A new system, inaugurated at the beginning of the school year, provides that each student belong to one, and only one club. The clubs meet during a special short period, about every third Wednesday morning. This system has proven very satisfactory and bids fair to continue in use. The French Club was the only new club organized this year. It has had a large membership from its beginning and is one of the most flourishing clubs in school. Then we have the five older clubs; they being the Radio, Booster, Dramatic, Debating and Latin. Besides these clubs we have our music consisting of the Band, Orchestra and Choruses. Also a couple of three act plays and an operetta have claimed a share of our attention. All these together with our contests, parties, and other things too numerous to mention have gone together to make a fairly active nine months- And, Oh yes! I forgot--------but well I can’t tell it all here, so proceed! Page Seventy-oneThe Staff Here they are. Look them over. To this "roup of students fell the honor and privilege of working together on this publication. The Staff has no more been perfect than can an individual be without fault. Hut the prevalent spirit of the entire staff has been one of co-operation. With pictures to be taken and mounted for the engraver, copy to write, pledges to sell, advertising space to lease, and one hundred and one other odd jobs to be done there has been plenty of work for all. Each member of the staff lias willingly done his part to make this year’s “Crescent” a success. I only hope that the “Crescent” will prove as enjoyable to you as the making of it has to us. —Arthur Noble. The Personel MILDRED McCARTY ARTHUR NOBLE DAN JOHNS Asst. Editor. Editor-in-Chief. Asst.

There were two reasons for this, one was on account of the differences in the abilities of the musicians; the other was because of the increasing size. The “A” orchestra appeared before the public several times and each time won the warmest praise from the audience. In order to please all tastes in music both classical and semi-classical music was included in their repertoire. Some of the most difficult of selections were successfully rendered by this organization on each occasion of their appearance. Though the “B” orchestra never appeared before the public they practiced faithfully and were ready at all times to give their aid in any way possible. The school was represented at the State Teachers’ Association Meeting by having seven of our musicians in the All-State Orchestra. To Miss Jackson, the director, belongs a very great share of the credit due to this body. She has developed the various persons into a harmonious ensemblege, which would surely be a credit to any school. On the evening of April 22, the people who love music in Elwood were entertained by the Chorus classes of the High School. A musical comedy in two acts was presented. The name of this pleasing play was ‘'The Bells ot Beaujolais. ” The scene was on an isle just off the coast of France. Beautiful girls and fickle boys in an American party started things going and the audience was very much interested until the final curtain dropped. This year the Elwood High School sent four members of the Chorus to Indianapolis to take part in the all-state chorus at the state teachers meeting- This is the first time that Elwood was ever represented in the all-state chorus. Those who went to Indianapolis were: Kaymond Brisco, Alma McDaniel, Katherine Wilson, and Charles Snodgrass. Page Seventy-fiveThe Band In the last few years the High School band has grown rapidly and lias become one of the organizations of the school on which the eyes of all the people in Elwood focus. When the band strikes up a martial tune either on the march or on concert it seems to make every one listening have a feeling of pride to realize that such an organization is part of the High School. The band has become the most distinctive group of students in the school. At all inter-school contests the band is there rain or shine. There it is the sustainer of pep and enthusiasm, it puts fight in the players. In this way the band is doing its bit toward winning the game. Mr. Hirt, the always smiling band master, has much to do with the success of the band and to him goes much of the credit. Such a band as Elwood’s is an asset to any school. Page Seventy-six VUAV4 - Hd I3 “Miss Honor Bright” “Miss Honor Bright” was the title of the three act drama, presented by the Senior class November 18, as the annual Senior Class Play. The cast was well chosen and their rendering of this popular play was very creditable. The play was directed by Mr. Harsh, and to him belongs much of the credit for its success. The cast was as follows: Mrs. Barrington Richard Barrington Bishop Carton Mrs. Carton Rev. James Schooly Honor Bright Bill Drum Tot Marvel Watts Poster Michael Marjorie Monroe Bennett Lamb Arthur Noble Uda Adams Theodore Higgins Jeanette Nuzum Raymond Harting Cecelia Werline Tudor Morgan Russell Elmore Dan Johns Page Seventy-eight (Continued on page 116)On the evening of March loth, the three-act farce “Second Childhood” was presented by the Dramatic Club in the auditorium. The play was one of the most successful ever seen by Ehvood audiences, not only in the abundance and quality of its comedy, but also in the excellency of the cast. Each one of the cast did their part in providing the spectators an evening of wholesome laughter. The play was coached by Mr- Harsh with the aid of the other sponsors of the club, Misses Thurston, Welborn and Minnich. The cast was as follows: Prof. Reives i Phillip Stanton Sylvia Relyea Mrs. Wellsmiller Gen. Burbeck His Daughter-in-Law Judge Sanderson Mrs. Vivert - Her Mother Lucille Norton Sheriff Johnson Deputy Sheriff Stoker Music furnished by the High School Orchestra. Robert Osborn Clarence Young . Anne Lois Hiatt Helen Griffin Theodore Higgins Ruth Larimore Joseph Fihe .. Bonnie Harrell — Madge Foland -----Estella Rav ----Charles High Chauncey Frazier Page Seventy-nineRoosevelt Debating Club This club claims the honor of being the oldest organization in E. H. S. At present there are about thirty-five members of the club, all very interested in the art of debating. Every Thursday evening this year a debate was held in the Auditorium before the public. March 8 the club held a dual meet with Alexandria. The subject debated was “Resolved That There Should Re a Department of Education Organized with a Secretary in the President’s Cabinet.” Tudor Morgan, Lois Wiggins and Charles Mills represented the affirmative side, while Dan Johns, Mary Morton and Minnie Morse upheld the negative. Our negative won at home, and the affirmative lost at Alexandria. The officers of the club are Tudor Morgan, president; William Baxter, vice-president; Ernest Meucci, secretary, and Lois Wiggins, treasurer. The teachers who sponsor this fine body of pupils are Donald Brown, C. B. Noble, Harley Ashton and R. L- Phillips. Page EightyDramatic Club This club of over a hundred members enjoyed a very successful year. At an early meeting the following officers were selected: Dan Johns, president; Winifred White, vice president; Cecelia Werline, secretary and Joyce Morgan, treasurer. Very clever programs were presented at the regular meetings. At a meeting of the Parent-Teachers’ Association members of the club prsented a one-act play entitled “The Fiddler.” “Christmas in a Day Coach” was presented to the student body just before the holidays. The club’s crowning achievement of the year, however, was “Second Childhood,” a three-act farce presented to the public on March 15. Mr Harsh sponsored this organization together with Misses Welborn, Thurston and Minnich.Le Circle Francais Le Circle Francais was organized last fall with eighty-five members. It was sponsored by Mrs. Records, Miss Koontz, Miss Miller, and Miss Sneed. At the first meeting the following officers were elected: Jeanette Nuzum, President; Evelyn Powell, Vice-President; Dorothy Kantner, Secretary and Treasurer. The purpose of the club is to acquaint the students of French with the life, customs, and culture of the people of that country. We should be interested with these people since the war. The programs are varied. Sometimes talks are given on various phases of French life. Occasionally French games are played. Two plays were given. One was given (Continued on page 120) Page Eighty-two Societas Latina The object of this club is to study the life, customs and laws of the old Romans, and thus promote a more extensive interest in the study of Latin. This club, organized in ’24 has grown rapidly ever since and is now one of the largest of our clubs, having ninety-five members. There are four sponsors: Miss Foote, Miss Nuzum, Miss Koons and Mr. Forney. Officers of the society are: William Jones, President: (succeeded in the second semester by William White); Worth Dellinger, Vice-President, and Wilma Heflin, secretary. Mary Alice Lamm is chairman of the program committee, and Wilma Wisler, Virginia Clymer, and Durmond Wann are guards. (Continued on page 120) Page Eighty-three The Radio Club At the beginning of the school year the Radio Club was reorganized with a membership of one hundred-four (104 boys, who were interested in the science of radio. Giles Hiatt was elected President, Robert Leavell, vice-president, and John Cain, secretary-treasurer. Ralph Mays was appointed reporter. Mr Champion, Mr. Kratli, Mr. House and Miss Hanna are the sponsors. Some fine radio sets were made by some of the boys in their homes. The regular club meeting periods were taken by by different boys who gave talks on the invention and development of radio. Mr. Champion led discussions on the possible troubles of radio sets and their remedy. Page Eighty-fourYea Rah Boosters The Booster Club was organized in October, 1926, under the supervision of Misses Cox Spencer and Grosswege. Election of officers were held the same day. Mildred Alexander was elected President; Ada Duncan, Vice-President; Mariam Hawkins, Treasurer and Mary Belle Moschell, Secretary. There are 110 members. The purpose of the club is to boost all activities carried on by the High School and to work for the betterment of the school. The Boosters have played a large part in the selling of all tickets sold by the High School. They have helped to carry over the plays, games, operettas and lyceums. The entertainment committee thhoughout the year was composed of: Blanche Miller, Helen Higbee, Lydia Frazier, Louise Kennedy, Lenora Carmody, Hester Walsh and Mildred Safford. This committee entertained the club at several meetings with pleasing programs.3 The P. T. A. was organized for the purpose of bringing the parent and the teacher into closer relationship for the good of the pupil. The entire student body has profitted from this acquaintance of the parent with the teachers’ problems. A eo-operation has been born which has always worked for the good of the school. Although many students look upon this organization as a great peril to their well-being and happiness, the greater majority appreciate the work that is being done for their benefit. Every year the organization has become more and more active and we hope will continue to do so. The officers for this year are: Mr. Bruce Johnson, president; Harley Ashton, vice president; Miss Thurston, treasurer; Mrs. Patchett, secretary. Latin Contest This year as usual, Elwood sent two people from each division in Latin to the county contest at Alexandria. Of these three emerged winners and were privileged to represent the county in the District Contest held at Mun-cie on March 26. These were Oval Duckworth, division III, Claude Koch-man and Wilma Evans, both of the 1A division. Of these only Claude was able to win a first. Accordingly he competed in the State Contest at Bloomington on April 8. This was the first time an Elwood student ever succeeded in getting to the state, and we are proud of him, even if he did fail to win one of the first three awards. Page Eighty-sixIVtljlcticsMr. Phillips, our coach and Mechanical Drawing teacher, is well liked by every one in our school. He has turned out many winning teams for Elwood in football, basketball and track. In the seven years that Mr. Phillips has been with us, he has instilled the fight and spirit into our teams that has made Elwood known all over the state. Besides being a wonderful coach, Mr. Phillips is a fine Mechanical Drawing teacher, lie puts the same “keep trying” spirit into his classes that he puts into his teams. We are certainly lucky to have a man like It. L. Phillips for our coach and we hope that he continues to do his fine work in Elwood.

Johnny Byus Page NinetyLament of a Fallen Warrior Alas! Sad world, despair lias filled my heart. All joys, all hopes are trodden underneath. Cruel Destiny has rent my soul apart And makes me long to leave this desolate heath. The fray is o’er. In the annals of Time Are written the glories that I have lost. Nipped as the bud in ethereal clime By the curse of an insidious Frost, While fighting with a will to win or die, Came Catastrophe with all her might, To seize the Trophy when Victory was nigh And cheers of the Victors rang through the night. For Elwood has lost and Lapel has won, The Panthers lay vanquished, the battle done. •—Bernard Schuck. Page Ninety-one3 Football Elwood High had only a mediocre season in football this year. The fellows fought hard in every game hut were too light weight in comparison with many of their opponents. Elwood teams are noted for their fighting ability and this year’s team was no exception. The team improved a great percent during the season. This is shown by the fact that Elwood showed up so much better in their second game with Tech than in the first. Jarrett, Lesko, Broyles, Richards, Hocker, Meucci, Marvin Gardner and Wilson have played their last game for Elwood High. Next year we wil’ have the same backfield again. The problem confronting Coach Phillips is that of turning out a good line If he is successful in doing this, and we are confident that he will be, Elwood has good prospects of a very successful season next fall. Page Ninety-twoRALPH BROYLES ’25, 20 “Boils” Ralph played every position on the line but center during the season. Every game that Ralph was in he went into with that fighting determination which made him so well liked by his team-mates In fact he was so well liked that his name will be engraved on the Sellers Trophy. DAVID RICHARDS ’25, ’26 “Di.” “Goat” "Di” was center and captain of this year’s team. The hard luck that “Di” had last year seemed to have followed him this year too, for he was kept out of the games nearly all season by injuries. El wood El wood El wood El wood El wood El wood El wood Elwood El wood Elwood ERNEST GARDNER ’25, ’26 “Sam,” “Ernie” “Sam” started the season out rath er slow, hut staged a comeback later on. As a result of his fine playing he is our coming captain. May you have a winning team.

Look out for "Greenie” next fall! WILLIAM BAXTER ’25, ’26 “Bill” Bill was shifted to half-hack this year. He put the same fight and spirit into the game from this position as he did last year at guard. Bill has two more years. Keep it up. Bill. MARVIN GARDNER ’25, ’26 "McKeesport” Mac played guard this year. He displayed some very heady playing and was a very popular fellow with his team-mates. This was his first year and we would expect some great things from him if he were to he with us next year. But alas! he will graduate. ERNEST MEUCCI ’25. ’26 “Meuc,” "Bananas” Ernie enjoyed the season at the tackle position. He was a determined player and must have been pretty slick; anyway, all we heard at Gary was, “Murphy, get that man!” HENRY LESKO ’25, ’26 "Heiny,” "Hen” "Heiny” played end this year. When he had the ball he was almost stop-proof as he had speed to burn. "Heiny” has played his last game for Elwood High and we sure hate to see him leave. JOSEPH HOCKER ’26 "War-Horse” Joe decided to play football this year and played a spectacular game at tackle. His fighting determination stopped many ambitious half-backs. Ask Kokomo. ROBERT BAMBROUGH ’26 “Tubby” • Tubby was a new man this year. Although rather slow, we look for him to become an excellent player at the guard position. Tubby has one year yet to shine. Show your stuff! VICTOR WILSON ’26 “Vic” This was Vic’s first year. However at end, he put the "ocean wave” on the backs so hard that they got sea-sick. We hope we have you next year Vic. Pago Ninety-fivePage Ninety-six3 WAYNE KING ’25 26 “Kingy” Kingy was one of our sub halfbacks. Kingy is rather light but he made up for that by his grit and determination. Kingy has two more years and we look for him to become a valuable player in the next two seasons. JOE HAAS 26 “Haasy” Joe stepped over from the Parochial schools this year and went into the quarter-back position in great style. His steady head-work saved several drives for us. We are expecting great things of Joe next year. JOE MORRIS ’25, ’26 “Joey” Joe started the season in great style. In the Kokomo game he was a veritable “human plow.” He is an excellent full-back and we are very glad that we have him for two more years. PAUL JARRETT 25. ’26 “Pickles Pickles finished his football career in a blaze of glory. Being always a determined player the center was well-night impregnable. May he always stand as an example for future players. BERNARD SCHUCK ’26 “Bernie” Schuckie stepped over with Haasy this year too. In the games he played, he certainly looked like he will be a valuable player next year. We are certainly glad that we have him again next season WILLIAM BROGDEN ’26 “Bill” “Bill” was our hard hitting fullback. When Bill started he meant business and it took more than one man’s attention to stop him He put all he had in every game and we expect great things of him the next two years. GEORGE WERSHING ’25, ’26. “Buck” "Buck” was back at guard again this year with more fight than ever. “Buck” had a habit of getting in front of every play that the opposing team started, and it was hard to get past him. “Buck” made the all-state team, and he still has two more years. Page Ninety-sevenPAUL JARRKTT ’25, ’26. ’27 “Pickles” Pickles was our back-guard this year. With Pickles under the has ket the opposing team was “out” of luck when it came to getting close-up shots. Because of his efficient work under the basket and fine attitude at all times. Pickles will have his name engraved on the beautiful Citizens’ Bank Trophy. Page Ninety-eightThe Panthers Ehvood enjoyed a fairly successful basketball season. The Panthers came out fifty-fifty in their games during the season, winning ten and losing the same number. The team finished the season strong, winning the last three games by overwhelming scores. With these came Tipton, our time honored rival. In this game we defeated them by a 37-34 score, thus avenging our earlier defeat. The Panthers entered the tournament at Anderson with high hopes of winning. These hopes were shattered by Lapel, who led by Anderson, their veteran forward, administered a 2-18 defeat. Jarrett and Humke, backguard and forward, respectively, will he the only regulars lost by graduation. This leaves eight of the first ten for next year’s squad. These eight, every one of whom have had at least two years experience- should prove to make one of the best teams Ehvood ever had. Page Ninety-nineWILLIAM BAXTER ’26, ’27 “Bill” Bill was back at center again this year. Besides his fine jumping at center. Bill has all the tricks of basketball “down pat.” Bill was a consistent scorer all season and still has two more years to go. Let’s make the best of them, Bill. ROBERT HUMKE ’26, ’27 “Bob” Bob became a regular in the Lapel game. By virtue of his uncanny playing he was a great find. Bob was well liked by all the spectators. At Tipton he swepjt the fair sex off their feet Bob was a great player, and we would certainly like to see him in a suit next year ROBERT CARTER ’26, ’27 “Bob” Bob won one of the regular forward positions this year. Bob played a consistent game all season. He always contributed his share to the points. Bob was a “dead eye Dick" on shots near the basket. Bob also has another year to play. JOSEPH MORRIS ’26, ’27 “Joe” Joe was our fast little floorguard. Although Joe is rather small he made it up in speed and fight. When Joe went dribbling through he usually made a basket. Joe has two more years. Watch him burn the floor up! Page One Hundred ERNEST GARDNER ’26, ’27 “Sam” Sam played forward this year. He certainly showed up good in many of the games. When it came to “sticking” a man, or to tipping them in under the basket. Sam was there with the goods, year. ROBERT GLOVER ’27” “Bob” Bob played either center or back-guard. He came to Elwood from Carthage. His tallness plus his basketball ability made him a valuable man to have on the team. We look for Bob to earn for himself a regular position on next year’s team. HENRY LESKO ’26, ’27 “Heiny” Heiny was our substitute back-guard. He was certainly a bear on defense. Heiny seldom shot, but he was good on dribbling down the floor like a flash and then feeding the ball to a forward. We are sorry that we are losing Heiny Sam has another WAYNE KING ’26 ’27. “Kingy” Kingy worked his way to the top this year, for he was one of the first eight. Kingy’s specialty was to dribble down the floor with his right hand and then shoot over his head with his left. Kingy has two more years to go. LOUIS SULLIVAN ’25, ’26, ’27 “Louie” Louis played forward this year and he certainly is fast. Louie could pick up more passes than any other fellow on the team. Although Louie did not go to Anderson this year, we are expecting some great playing from him next year. Page One Hundred OneWRESTLING ‘27 This year although we did not have a coach we had a very good wrestling team. The team was organized at tne beginning 01 me seconu semester. Ernest Meucei, a member of last year’s team- was made Student Coach. On account of his illness Ernest Moore was selected to take his place. Henry Nauman was the efficient trainer of the team. After practicing every night for about six weeks a meet with Wabash was arranged. The boys although they fought hard were defeated by the superior coached Wabash boys. The next week, the 25th of March, they took part in the State Wrestling Championship Meet at Bloomington, t hey tie-fended their championship which they won last year under coaching of Mr. Koontz. The boys who represented El-IIi there were as follows: 100 lbs., Wui. Lewis; 108, Harry Davis; 115, Mike Osman; 125, Clinton Parker; 125, Geo. Osman; 145, Walter Greene; 155, W. King; 165, Mike Mesalam; 175, Wm. Baxter; Jleavyweight, Robert Bambrough- Mike Osman was the only State Champion on the team. George Osman, Green, King, all won second place in their respective weights; and Baxter took third place, gaining for Elwootl a total of 23 points and THIRD PLACE in the State!3 Track Only in the last few years has track came into its own in El wood. It now is one of the big sports and is interesting more boys each year. Last year Elwood had a very successful track season, but only succeeded in sending one man, John .Lesko, to the state meet. This season we have some very promising track material and ought to enjoy an even better season than last year. About thirty-five boys responded to Coach Phillip’s call this spring. On the afternoons of March 29 and 30, an inter-class track meet was held at the Callaway Park. The Juniors carried off high honors with 39 points. The Seniors were second scoring 31 points. The Sophs brought up third place. The Freshmen also received 4 points. Let’s go gang and make this a real track year! Page One Hundred Three3 Yea Sophomores This year the class basketball honors went to the class of ’29. This was undoubtedly a big upset of the dope bucket. The Sophs defeated the Frosh in the opening game of the tournament. The Seniors then proceeded to take the Juniors over in a hard fought battle- Then came finally the finals. At the armory that night both teams fought a real battle. The teams were nearly evenly matched and the outcome was doubtful many times before the final gun was fired. Fate seemed to be against the Seniors and the Sophs won 25 to 24! The following were members of the Sophomore team: Frazier, Wann, Smith, Armstrong, McDermitt, Hurd, Williams, Austin and Noble. Frazier was the high point man, scoring 17 of the 25 points. Mr. Bridges is to be complimented upon bis work in leading this team to victory. Ilis coaching had a great deal to do with the winning of the championship.

Its courses have never been included in the curriculum of our Public Schools but the lessons it has taught have done much toward the development and progress of this vicinity. Thrift and money-value are its subjects and through constant contact with its patrons it has encouraged the one and demonstrated the other. Without Thrift and a knowledge of the value of money little will be accomplished by the mere acquirement of an education. We invite every student in this vicinity to have a savings account with us. Deposits can be made in it at any time and in any amount either in person or by mail. This is the first step toward success-all must take it eventually, why not now? Wayne Leeson, President. 0.
