Four years we have been in EKvood High School and this time has not passed alone, for many are the memories of that accompany it, events which will play an important part in the making of our characters, and to the faculty we owe a deep debt of gratitude for their unselfish guidance. Our high school days are over and the future is before us into which we shall carry sacred memories of faculty associations, and fondest hopes tor friends who will prove as loyal as you, our leaders, our partners—our faculty.SUPT. WM. F. SMITH We wish to congratulate Mr. Smith, the Superintendent of Public Schools, on his remarkable understanding and ability to cope with every situation. Mr. Smith, in his former positions of Instructor and Principal and his present position of Superintendent, has given to the school system years of successful service that are above material measurement. PRIN. C. C. HI!.LIS For one year only have we had the pleasure of being with Mr. Hillis. We, in graduating this year, feel the loss keenly in not being able to be with him longer.

Ball State Teachers' College Teacher of Mathematics and EnglishSENIOR CLASS HISTORY Five hundred youths were present on that bright September morn in 26, and all were jubilant and enthusiastic; but even a casual observer could have noticed two different groups of students. The first group—confident, noisy, and seemingly at home in their surroundings—these were former students resuming their studies. The second group, curious, timid, and apparently frightened—formed the Freshman body who after four years of school life at Elwood High, now proudly lay claim to the title of Seniors— the Class of '30. Sophomores—ah! the time when we felt we knew all there was to know. Our great business ability was recognized by the organization of our class with the following faithful heads as officers: President, Miriam Hawkins; Vice-President, Horace Mays; Secretary, Robert Gritton; Treasurer, Lucile Rankin. The colors chosen were Silver and Crimson, and the motto, "Rowing not drifting.” The officers for the mid-year class were President, Helen Powell; Vice-President, Mable Paddock; Secretary, Richard Creagmile; Treasurer, Claude Kochman. Then came the Junior year. Many of the students were active in various activities and we were proud of them. The class officers for the year were: President, Miriam Hawkins; Vice-President, John Byus; Secretary, Regis Higgins; Treasurer, Lucile Rankin. Officers for the mid-year class were: President, Mable Paddock; Vice-President, Robert Jones; Treasurer, Richard Creagmile; Secretary, Claude Kochman. When classes were resumed early in the fall of 1929, the students returned with added zeal, ready to add their names to the list of those who had gone before them—the graduates. The class plunged heart and soul into the work (we hope they did) and with abundant ability to do things under able supervision, accomplished unprecedented successes. The officers for this last year showed excellent ability in performing their many duties. The mid-year class officers were: President, Robert Jones; Vice-President, William Lewis; Treasurer, Minerva Jane Evans; Secretary, Claude Kochman. The spring class selected: Regis Higgins as President, Miriam Hawkins as Vice-President, Horace Mays as Treasurer, and Beulah Perkins as Secretary. Thus closes our history in Elwood Hi-school and the beginning of our history as alumni.i ROBERT JONES Reserved in manner. A quick and accurate thinker.

(Continued on page 136) •'CTIVITI ACTIVITIES It is an undeniable fact that activities play a large and important part in the high school life of each of us. During the past year the interest in extra-curricular functions has developed to a point past criticism. Compulsory membership in clubs combined with a greater number of different types from which to select one’s choice have greatly increased interest in our scholastic organizations. Besides these we have the Staff, Band, Orchestra and the Debating Teams of which we are justly proud.THE STAFF There is little left to be said concerning this book or staff. You have the book and can judge for yourself the work which this group had to do. We, the staff, wish to thank you all for the excellent cooperation which you have so willingly given us, for without this we could not have attempted to publish the Crescent. Especially, we want to thank Donald Ackerman who has given to us, and you, his time and ability to the printing which is found in the art sections of this book. We wish you all good luck and many more happy years such as this one has been.

Its work has extended through the school to the general public until it has awakened them to the value of this unit of high school, and has finally brought them to the realization that the members deserve no small amount of praise. It is divided into parts, A and B. Under the direction of Miss Jackson each has progressed very nicely. The talent of the orchestra has been displayed at many high school functions.

The time was in the colonial days, the days of the pirate infested seas; the place was aboard a ship. Amusement was afforded by the "peace time" bravery of the policemen. Terror and fear were produced by the presence of the bold bad pirates.

Since the first returns of their efforts much progress has been made in that the quality has multiplied four-fold as has the interest and support the students have shown and given. We have had at each debate a fine representation of the students. It is difficult for us to express our deep appreciation and genuine pride in the two teams which represented our school in the state contest held at North Manchester College in April. For their conscientious and intensive preparation they will deserve the many distinguished honors which have been conferred upon them, both individually and as a group. Moreover, we wish to acknowledge, as they do, their singular good fortune in having coaches of such superior ability as Mr. Lindley and Mr. Brown—they too worked and sacrificed. Even though they didn't win the state honors, it is consoling to know that being for the first year in the Debating League they reached the finals along with several other schools, from a field of sixty-seven. And more years are coming! Teams Affirmative—Antoinette Filiatreau, Paul Schrenker, Jack Campbell, and Dale Noble. Negative—James Hunt, William Harmon, Regis Higgins, and Earl Noble.

The thought, carried through is that, although it may seem otherwise, our white and yellow races should not, in fact, cannot blend without destruction coming to each, but that purity of purpose and of heart can be found in either race.

Coach Naugle is the Ideal, always respecting and revering him the students know that he cannot fail them, as they know the team fights for "Jerry.” But in victory or defeat everybody knows that Coach Naugle is behind his guns. Very few coaches in the state can boast of the record he has attained. The players, too, vouch for Naugle, and even though they may not escape the verbal lashings and hard drivings that only Naugle can give; nevertheless, they play with the knowledge that they are glad to battle to the end for their School, and Jerry.FOOTBALL SQUAD Top row—Davis, Goetz, R.

ELWOOD 0; KOKOMO 6 To the Kokomo-Elwood game goes the honor of being the curtain raiser for the 1929 season. Both teams showed plenty of fight despite weather conditions. The only score chalked up was by the forward pass route with only 30 seconds of the first half left to go. The Panthers came back hard the last half but failed to put the ball across the last white line. According to signs those Panthers look plenty good and have the makings of a strong team. ELWOOD 6; CLINTON 6 Introducing night football into high school circles. The Panthers held the strong "Kelly Kids” of Clinton to a 6 to 6 tie. Outweighed and handicapped on every side, the team matched the brawn of the coal miners with the strategy, and fighting spirit of Elwood High School, and came out in front, not only tying the score but returning home with a moral victory under their belts.EL WOOD 0; TECH 0 Tech of Indianapolis with its strongest team in years failed to penetrate or even dent the forward wall of the fighting Panthers. This game brought out the fact that Elwood ball toters on this occasion were in a slump, but it can't last. So look out, Marion! ELWOOD 27; MARION 0 The offensive and defensive power of the Panthers in this game was superb. The Elwood backs rode roughshod over their opponents and repeatedly crossed the Giant's goal line for points. While Marion was held without score. ELWOOD 58; NOBLESVILLE 0 Coach Naugle turned his pack of untamed Panthers loose for a little romp this afternoon. They engaged in a slight scrimmage with the boys from Noblesville. The Panthers had not been fed for a week, but satisfied their appetites to the tune of 58 to 0. ELWOOD 13; SHORTRIDGE 13 Shortridge, expecting a line plunging, end running cage of Panthers from the tinplate city, were greatly fooled by the overhead exhibition the team put on for their benefit. Shortridge did not wake up to the fact that they were playing football until the Panthers were 13 points to the good. Shortridge came back in the last quarter to tie the score. Those Panthers look better every game. ELWOOD 33; ANDERSON 13 Our ancient rivals, Anderson, here with a great team and high hopes of victory. Those hopes were swelled when the Indians marked up 13 points to our 0. Those hopes went down with a crash, and then a sigh, for eleven more redskins bit the dust, and were trampled there by the thundering charge of eleven lithe Panthers. ELWOOD 6; MUNCIE 0 With the invasion of Muncie, Elwood ended its 1929 football season. This game was a fitting conclusion to one of the greatest seasons Elwood has ever known. Completely outclassing the Bearcats in every department of the game the Panthers rung down the curtain in a blaze of glory that will long be remembered in the history of Elwood High.t RAYMOND GOETZ (Captain) Captain Goetz piloted his team through one of the most successful seasons Elwood High School has ever known. Goetzie certainly put pep into his teammates. Good luck, Ray. KARL DENNIS "Greek” Karl was our big dashing tackle, and when he settled down to business it was just too bid for the opponents. Dennis will lead the Panthers next year. Play hard, Karl! HARRY DAVIS "Heze” 'Harry, who was voted to have his name on the cup, was our hard plowing fullback; not very big, but "he sure had a sweet disposition when carrying that potato". So long, our high school hero. PAUL SCHRENKER "Pauley” Schrenker, our most consistent player. Big, boisterous, and "plenty tough." Wonder if we ll ever find anyone to fill his shoes— Afraid not. JAMES SNYDER "Jimmy" Jim certainly played a wonderful game at end. And as for catching passes he was always the one to do it. Ask Shortridge. JOSEPH WARNER "Flatfoot" Joe played at end in great style. He might have flatfeet, but he could get down on those punts. Catch passes? Well I should say! Be good, Joe. REGIS HIGGINS "Reg" Reg directed the team from the quarterback position. His strategy and quick thinking contributed greatly to the success of the Panthers this season. JAMES J. HUNT "Jim" Jim was another one of our ends. His speciality was snagging passes when they were most needed. Jimmy leaves us this year and all of us hate to see him go as he was ready to fight anytime for Elwood High.I ANTONE STINE "Tut” Always smiling in the thick of battle and fighting all the time. He surely plugged up those holes at Marion, playing the best game of his career. Sorry to lose you, Tony. DELBERT ETCH ISON "Hoi Shot” Hot Shot” played a steady game at guard all year, and when a pass was to be had it could be found by Delb. AUBREY CLEVELAND Aubrey played himself into a guard position in this, his first year out for the team. Aubrey is back next year and we expect to see our happy-go-lucky on the field playing as hard as ever. ROBERT DOERMAN "Bob” Bob was our small but mighty quarterback. When Bob did get in a game he showed his caliber by knowing what plays to use at the right time. ALBERT SCHUCK "Hero” Schuckey, an import from St. Jo High School. He proceeded to play football in great style and we’re banking on the Hero” next year. JOSEPH ESHELMAN ”Joe” Joe is one of the lightest men on the team, but he made up his lack of weight in fight. His passes from center were unerring and his defensive game excellent — Fight hard, Joe. HAROLD OWEN "Farmer” Owen was one of our big guards. During his second year on the squad, he showed great improvement. We re expecting great things of him next year. ROBERT HUNT ”Scrump” There are none better than Scrump when it comes to kicking or passing a football around any gridiron. Just ask Muncie about this triple threat man.HOWARD LAMB "Lambie" This is our Deluxe model of a human express train. Can he run around those ends? Watch him next year and see for yourself. WILLIAM SMITH "Bill” Bill played at guard and was the heavyweight of the squad. The opposition almost lost hopes trying to gain through Smitty. Lots of fight next year. Bill. BLTRI. HEFLIN Burl, though only a freshman, showed real class for his first year. With three more years to go he promises to be one of the best backs El wood High has produced. Keep it up. MAURICE JACKLEY Jackley was one of our dependable ends playing a very consistent game when in the lineup. He also will be in there next year fighting for all he’s worth. RAYMOND BERRYMAN Ray was one of our tackles, always putting his best into the game and fighting until the final whistle was blown—Watch him go next year. JOSEPH BRODGEN "Ba tleaxe” Big. fast, and shifty—that's Joe. He didn't get that name of Battleaxe for nothing. When we needed a few yards this good old Panther could always get them. There are two more years for Joe. MIKE KENNEDY "The Pest" Folks, give this little boy a great big hand.

We are expecting you back next year and lots of luck to you. WILLIAM CREAGMILE "Mabel” Creagmile the only senior on the entire squad and will be greatly missed by his teammates. Mabel was another of the long shot artists of which the Panthers boast. JOSEPH BROGDEN ”Industrious” Joe was the fellow who always had as much pep when the final whistle blew as when the game started. Joe’s opponents were aware of his presence. ROBERT HUNT Captain Hunt’s versatile and stellar playing placed him on the first all-sectional team. Bob's game throughout the season was very steady and he could always be counted on to ' swish the draperies’’ when necessary. Under the basket his height made him a most valuable man. Lots of luck next year. Bob. WILLIAM HUNTSINGER ’Pete" Pete played his first year for El wood High, and did a very neat job in holding down the center position. We’re banking on Bill to keep up the fight next year. KARL DENNIS "Greek” Karl w'as the handy man of the Panther aggregation. Dennis could fill any position and did, playing everything from backguard to center. Dennis has another year. Watch his smoke.EVERETT HAVENS "Coach” Coach was one of the very few small members of the squad. A half pint in size, but a gallon in determination. Nice going. Coach. HOWARD LAMB Lamb was the shifty young fellow who played floorguard. Swiftness and a good shot from far out on the court were Lambie's main assets. And this is not his last year. LUCIAN WEDDLE "Flaming Mamie” Lue, the elongated center, was the “sky scraper" of the Panthers. His height made him a very valuable man especially to get the tip oft. Were banking on you to be bigger and better next year. Lue. WILLIAM DeHORITY "Bill” Bill was another of the underclassmen. Being a Freshman he will be back for the next three years and we hope he keeps up the good playing. BURL HEFLIN "Peacock” Burl, although just a Sophomore, started playing good ball from the very first of the season and continued until the end. Watch him go next year. MIKE KENNEDY (Student Manager) Hey! Where's the other ball? You guys quit messing around here. Where're those shoes? Leave that alone.” And that is our old friend Mike on the warpath in the dressing room.Top row—Robert Gritton, James Hunt, Richard Creagmile, Mr. House, Coach, Harry Davis, Horace Mays. Bottom row—Aubrey Cleveland, Joseph Beaty, Maurice Jackley, William Downey, Antone Stine. CLASS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS The class basketball championship was won by this great little team. The Seniors, coached by Mr. House, came through the first round of the tournament in great style-eliminating the Juniors, thereby earning the right to mix with the Freshman in the rinals where they toppled off the underclassmen in a bitterly contested game.ADVERTISERS We appreciate greatly the coopertion of Elwood Business and Professional men who so readily responded to our efforts for our ’30 Crescent.

Shall it be said of our school that it backs only the teams that win? We wonder how many of our faculty ever had "to stay in for conference.'' There ought to be a warrant out for anyone caught singing "Sonn-e-e-c Boy.” Yoyos have gone the way of plaited pigtails and bicycles built for two.

(OPERETTA Continued) For the "All's well" ending of this clever operetta, responsibility falls upon the fairy queen who with aid of a magic wand changed the sad plight of affairs for the voyagers and punished the pirates by forcing upon each the curse of a muse, namely, each must be a poet. To Miss Jackson and Miss Clymer is due the credit for the success of "All at Sea” for it was because of their efforts that it earned the phrase "best yet.” To Miss Lyst, Miss Grishaw, and Mrs. Miller is due the credit for the clever art work, the painting of the scenery and designing of the costumes.
