"What is a building," I have been asked, "hut an inanimate thing of
steel and wood and stone? It cannot speak or think or feel g it cannot hate
or love, it cannot scorn or sympathize. The building is nothing but an
example of architectural engineering."
That is true, too true, when one thinks in material terms. One might
say the same of a medal, a book, or of our own fiag. But my school is
more than that to meg its meaning to me transcends description but I
know it is more than sticks and stone. H
My school is a house of memories. Friendships fkept or forgotten 1,
mischief, flirtations, classes, new thoughts, entertainments, ambitions-
all go marching by in delightful disorder when I think of MY SCHOOL.
Don't tell me it is lifeless stone and steel, when every room and every hall
is alive with remembrances.
When I went away, I took with me some of my school but left as
much as there had been before. I feel that it is a part of me and of all
of us who have been there, for it gives of itself in abundance with always
the same to give those who may come after.
To be sure, my experiences there were not all of them pleasant, but
the painful hours have been forgotten, leaving only happy, wholesome,
delicious memories. 4
Steel ana' wood and stone? Yes, ana' a thousand memories that are
vivid and alive: that's MY SCHOOL.

EL. HI. SPIRIT, DEAD OR SLEEPING
just what's wrong with our high school? Everyone is complaining, but no one has
found the exact cause of all the fuss. While each of the students claims the ability to
put his finger on the sore spot, not one has suggested any sort of a remedy.
"It's the team,', say a few quitters.
"It's the high school spirit," says the team.
Who's right? does the team make the spirit or does the spirit make the team? Maybe
it's the spirit. Spirits come after death and it's a sure cinch something's dead. Where's
the pep-ziz that we used to have? Where's the loyal crowd that used to follow the
team? What's happened to that something that used to make the head giddy and the
lungs ache when we heard those words: "Everybody up!"? And where's the blame to
It surely is not the school in itself. We have here so many things of which to be
proud. This new library is to be looked into. our debating squad is not to be sneezed at,
and our new system is certainly worthy of notice. Everything spells order and efficiency.
Consider this book. You'll have to admit it becomes better every year. We have a fine
building here too, nice location, and there's no doubt that we're blessed with a wonderful
faculty. We have such a wide variety of courses offered that even the "choosey" are
satisfied. Elwood High School has a high scholastic standard and she's always repre-
sented in any race-academic or athletic. .
As students we have a lot for which to be thankful. Old El. Hi. doesn't require
a final exam. of you!
But on the other hand we don't have a gym, and it's been made outstandingly
fmostly standinglyj plain that our auditorium is no longer large enough to accommo-
date all of our flock: We don't have many entertainments such as Dr. McClain furnished
us, and no desire to be unusually good in decorum because of inner influences. Some-
We "razz" and "boon our school. We take up precious seats at yell practice and
refuse to cheer. We "cut" classes day after day. We laugh at our instructors. We
agree with anyone who says our school is a lot of "hooey."
Here's what's wrong. We're all a pack of cowards-low sneak cowards who fail to
realize that there is any such thing as loyalty and stick-to-it-iveness. Instead of shoulder-
ing the Red and Blue, we're yellow. We don't yell because we're afraid of being laughed
at. We are not courteous to visitors and above all we do not feel that Elwood High
School is "then school of the state.
Here's an appeal. Let's snap out of it. Say good-bye to the "razzberry,' days. Buck
up! Fill our lungs and cheer for the school. Live school, talk school, and when necessary
back her to the limit! Wake up that feeling of "She's my school and I'm for Her,"
that's sleeping beneath a hard-boiled surface. Let's all be Elwood High men and backers!
How about it?

SUPT. WM. F. SMITH
Devotion, Loyalty, Respect.
Such words express our feelings for Mr. Smith.
Men of his wonderful character and ability are
always welcome to this world of ours. It not only
ll't'1l'0llIl'.l such men-it demands them. Those being
that is why we respect our superintendent so much.
Mr. Smith, holding the position he dow, naturally

His deep understanding of the students and their
problems-his seeing all sides of every question and
his willingness to help in time of difficulties-makes

sociations with Mr. Smith, our superintendent, the stu-

PRIN. C. C. HILLIS
Human nature, as a rule, is opposed to leadership.
It is natural for people to feel a bit envious of, and
therefore rebellious toward a leader. Persons in com-
mand of anybody or anything are usually thought
overbearingly proud, snobbish, and stubborn.
But Mr. Hillis, as a leader, is an exception. We are
proud and happy to be led by him-proud, because
of his upright eharacterg happy, because he makes us
feel at ease in his presence. Although he is Hrm in
everything he says, his demands sound as though he
were asking favors.
Our principal's absolute kindness and sympathy
make him heroic looking in the eyes of all of us, and
we wonder if we shall he able to get along without
his guidance after we leave school.
Our last wish is that Mr. I-iillis will not forget too
soon those who have admired him so.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Doubtless everyone of you have heard of stories with parallel plots. If you, however, are one of the
unfortunates for fortunatesj who has not, your education along that line will be completed when you are
able to say that you have finished the English 8 course. But why all this fuss about parallel plots?
We have here one such story. The characters consist of the members of two classes, the 4A's and
4B's, the length of time covered, four and one half yearsg the line of action is almost exact in both in-
stances and both plots end in one great event-Commencement fa queer word with which to make a
finishj and Graduation.
We are concerned first with the plot involving the 4A's, the first of the two groups completing the
four year course.
Back in January of '27 forty-seven students hurried inside Elwood High School and shut the door
against the wind that threatened to put them through school in much less than four years. As the upper-
classmen at the head of the stairs looked down upon the little group huddled at the door they realized
that what it lacked in numbers, it certainly made up in pep and determination. True to predictions, these
freshies survived a terrible first year and became sophomores, tried and true members of a large E.H.S.
family. On March 13th they organized and after going into another huddle emerged with the following
results: President, Mary M. Barnes, Vice-President, Madeline Goodwing Secretary, Zelma Ballard, and
Treasurer, Paul Humlte, motto, "Not at the Top but Climbingng class colors, purple and gold, and flower,
the purple and gold pansy.
juniors-and still climbing. When the September election was over Madeline Goodwin was President,
Aubrey Cleveland, vice-president, Beulah Murphy, treasurer, and Loren Lindley, secretary. Mr. Forney
and Miss Morgan won the laurels as sponsors. Under the guidance of these two, the class, when 4B's, put
over one of the cleverest and most original receptions in E.H.S. history.
The only change made in the last election was in the position of vice-president. Charles Cooper was
chosen. The story was almost ended with an hilarious Senior week and a wonderful reception. Commence-
ment finishes all of it.
All in all, a wonderful class and a good story.
The second plot concerns the 4B's, or the spring class. These students breezed into high school in
September of '28 and soon made it clear that their accomplishments were as numerous and as varied as
autumn colors. But to their abilities they soon added a few sly tricks they learned while innocent freshies.
Then they became sophomores-believe it or not. And along with electing Howard Lamb as president,
Robert Hunt, vice-president, Henrietta Douglas, secretary, Dorris Bishop, treasurer, and Mr. George Smith,
sponsor, came the business of learning that each member was not quite as important as he seemed. Their
colors, lavendar and green, their flower, the sweet pea, and their motto, "Courage, Loyalty, and Service,"
they retained throughout the following years.
At the next election the class chose a complete new set of officers in Dale Noble as president, Harry
Wire, vice-president, Carolyn Fihe, secretary, Raymond Stokes, treasurer, and Mrs. Mary Records, sponsor.
And so passed a happy junior year.
When this mighty group of students became seniors they suddenly realized that there was a trying
job ahead of them, none other than giving a reception. But, with Carolyn Fihe as president, Howard
Lamb, vice-president, Ruby Foland, treasurer, Zelma Ballard, secretary, and Miss Leah Clymer as sponsor
they certainly did the job up "brown." Their "Arabian Knights" reception was a fitting climax for a
successful four years.
But even good things must end.
And just as june brings the roses, May brings Commencement and the beginning of the end of the
class of '31 and of a story with parallel plots.
Good-bye, all. Don't forget us too soon.

Couargc, loyally, and scrzfic'c-how essential are these qualities in the accomplish-
ment of the better things of life. No matter who we are, we can never do anything in
this world Without courage, it is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor. A great
deal of talent is lost in the world for want of a little courage. Much valuable time is
lost in waiting, doubting, and in consulting with particular friends and then there is no
more time to follow their advice. The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth
doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump
in and scramble through as well as we can.
Loyalty is that quality which prompts a person to be true to the things he under-
stands. It supplies power, poise, purpose, and works for health and success. Success
hinges on loyalty. Loyalty makes the thing to which you are loyal, yours. The only man
who goes unharmed is the one who is loyal to himself by being loyal to others. Nothing
but your best is good enough. Stick! and if you quit, quit to tackle a harder job.
The pathway to success is in serving humanity. The secret of happiness is not in
doing what one likes, but in liking what one has to do. By service to another and afford-
ing him happiness, the greater happiness do we derive from it.

JUNIOR HISTORY Y
Another class is onxrthe verge of assuming the all important task of becoming seniors.
They have been an organization for over a year and realize the task that is before them.
Since their organization in 1929 their progress has been easily noticed. From this class
have come individuals who have participated in all divisions ,dflactivities including
Debating, Annual work, Athletics, Music, etc. To deal With, the cgclary of this class
a division must be made. The Mid-year group selected asytheir grand wielder Virginia
Lamb, with Wm. Brogden to take the chair in Case of absence or death. Beatrice Tomlinson
records important matters and Jane Hackett carries the pocket book. They have the
combination of sapphire blue and silver for their colors, with the slogan, "Perseverence
is the Road to Success," for their motto. To show their ability as a capable class Miss
Nuzum was the one who steered their ship, and did it very efficiently.
The Spring Class has flizabeth Ackerman as main character. Maxine Phipps is her
honorable cohort who assisis her in the strenuous duty. George Barnes tabulates current
events and Dorothy Higgins handles the coin. With this the ruling body they have
made a noticeable headway this year. To spur them on in time of need they chose as
their motto: "Never Be Flat, Always Be Sharp." The sponsor of this body was Mr.
Hosier, who performed his duty to the highest degree.
Both the spring and mid-year classes co-operated in every respect and great things
may be expected of them in the future.

THE SCHOOL AT WORK
Scene 1. Here we are in the commercial room where future typists are "pecking
away" for dear life. A number of capable students have come from this department of
our school, which is ample proof of its efficiency. Mrs. Neese, instructor in commercial
subjects, has done some very capable work with the students who have come to her for
training in these lines of activity.
Scene 2. Now let us step into our new library. In spite of the fact that this is
only the second year of our school lib:ary's existence, you can see that the shelves are
already amply filled with books. The library is equipped with new shelves, filing cabinzts,
and reading room furniture, and is beautifully decorated with bas-relief sculpturing
which is partly visible in this photograph. Miss Elizabeth Cox, new with us this year,
is our very efficient librarian.
Scene 3. This is room 200, the study hall where, as you can sez, there is a group
of apparently industrious students preparing their assignments. Gerald Smith may be
szen in the foreground, moving his head as if in doubt about some stupendous problem.
Seen: 4. Sh-h-h-! Let's sneak into Gsor e Smith's roam and see his math. class
n -...- 8 n 4
in action. Foiled again! He is making them study, just when we wanted to hear his
melodious voice Hring questions at some meek "freshie." Yx7ell, we'll see you later, Geo:ge..
Scene S. This is not a dairy in spite of all the bottles, or a brewery either. lt is
the Chemistry laboratory, showing some of its equipment but minus the brain power.
If we only had Bill Wright in the foreground pouring H 2 O in a IESK tube, the picture
would be complete.
Scene 6. Look who's here: "Grandpa Brogden' actually at work in a class room.
There is a reason, for it's in Mr. Forney's History class. Unfortunately Mr. Forney is not
in the picture. Perhaps he was occupied at the time in keeping Howard Peters from
amusing the class while he was taking the picture.
A Scene 7. Miss Foote's Latin class, 4th period, the most industrious class of the day,
for in this picture we see Tom Lindley seated back by the door where he can get out
quickly Qin case of firej. Do you see the empty seat on the left of Saba? It wouldn't
have been unoccupied if Dot Higgins had not been too modest.
Scenes 8 and 9. Miss Allen's English class, asleep and awake. This room is sup-
posed to be for physical geography which accounts for these English students looking so
out of place in it. How do you like the boy's hair cut here in front?
Scene 10. At last we arrive in the sewing room where future housewives are learn-
ing to sew on future buttons. "Girls, get your work out on the table," said Miss Koons
as out handsome photographer entered the room.

The present KB class began its eventful high school career in January, 1929, when
the members of that class were given a great send-off from Junior High by the classes
there, and Miss Roxie Brumfield, who was our sponsor then. Her last words to us were
those which sank deeply into the minds and hearts of many:--"Upward and Onward."
There were several members of the class that made resolutions that they would always
keep those words in mind.
After several embarrassing 'days as the greenest of "Freshies" our class settled down
to business. After some time we learned to leave Miss Nuzum's first period assembly
when the proper bell rang, and not to stay all day, as some did a few times. We found
out during our "baby daysn that that all-powerful body of privileged characters-the
SENIORS-can be utterly merciless at times Qin fact, most of the timej.
Under the guiding hand of Miss Grosswege, we blossomed out into 1A's almost
before we realized that, in the words of Miss Nuzum, temjms fugif. Mr. Brown, trying
hard to teach us the rudiments of proper English, nearly succeeded in turning himself
grey-headed struggling over our poor spelling. Miss Grosswege also guided us through
this trying period in our existence, and finally gave up all hope when we were passed
into the 2B class.
Realizing that now we were entering a new period in our long career through high
school, we now took it upon ourselves to organize into a regular class, and at last to
enjoy some of the privileges of the Seniors! Having chosen for our sponsor Mrs. Pearl
H. Miller, we then elected officers, the result being: Anna Harting, president, Burl
Heflin, vice-presidentg Harvey Smith, secretary, and Mary Elizabeth Stevens, treasurer.
Under this competent regime, we progressed in grand style for a whole semester. All
our dreams of manhood and womanhood soon being reached, were thoroughly shattered
by our esteemed principal, Mr. Hillis, when he passed the judgment that sophomores
were too young to have parties on the last day of school, all by themselves. However, it
was just as well that our little party was called off, for several love affairs might have
increased in intensity by a day's outing.
One year later we again elected officers. This time the new ruling body was: Anna
Harting, president, Martha Ruth Montgomery, vice-president, Mary Elizabeth Stevens,
secretary, and Harry W. Campbell, treasurer. Mrs. Miller having left her position in
El. Hi., We were forced to cast about for another sponsor, and were rewarded by securing
Mrs. Records, a famous individual who has made a name for herself in the attendance
department of our school. We wonder how many permits she has marked "Unsatis-
factory" in her capacity as attendance officer.
After considerable delay, our motto and colors were chosen, green and gold having
the majority's vote for the latter, and the motto being "Labor Conquers All!" Our only
hope, and the hope of many of our teachers is that the motto may not be forgotten in
Well, our high school course is more than half done, and as time goes on, we look
back on our first years here with a regret that they are gone forever.

' CLASS HISTORY
In the fall of '29 approximately one hundred seventy-five students crossed the bridge between old
Junior High and the unconquered High School and entered the unavoidable role of green but willing
freshmen. Then began life's greatest troubles. Such things make history. Miss Grosswege tutored them
along the lines of conduct befitting their position. In spite of continuous "gall" and bad advice from
upperclassmen they have lived and thrived.
Today finds them organized into a large but efficient class. As proof of their intelligence they
chose none other than Mr. Smith for their sponsor. Kelton Goodwin wields the gavel with Tom Lindley
as understudy. Little, but mighty, Maxine Haskett chalks up the absence marks and reminds members
of what happened at the previous meeting, while Hazel Hoggatt is sole possessor of the key to the
just as all underclassmen do, they prefer meek pink and green as their colors and the timid sweet
pea as their flower. However, they'll soon learn. Next year they'll be juniors--then watch their dust!
This school year was not without sadness, however, for death took from among them one
of their most beloved members, Miss Juanita jones.

The beginning of a new era that will end sometime in '3S. And a very good begin-
ning, don't you think? Quaking with agony and embarrassment because of their unim-
portance, these little students shivered into high school and stood helpless in a mad
scramble for lockers while they gazed with terrified eyes at "sure-footed" upper classmen.
They are our usual crop--and nothing new in the way of freshies-except that per-
haps they are "easy to look at" and must surely have intelligence in them. At least none
of it has come out yet. Fearfully they walk in the paths of right conduct for their grades
and skins' sake. But surely this goodness will not follow them unto their senior year. As
soon as the freshness wears off, these solemn-faced youngsters will be slyly placing bent
pins in temporarily vacant seats and Miss Grosswege's counsel will be remembered only
by the subconscious mind. Their most earnest work will be in developing lung capacity
for high school yells, and their greatestcare, in leaving something to be remembered by
even if it is only initials on assembly room desks.
Be that as it ma , we're ex ectin reat thin s from them. We want them to make
U Y a P s g s G
this next four years of cheering, the loudest and snappiest ever. We want them to shame
the other classes into going to the games and giving the Visitors a rousing and glad-
handed welcome. We want them to use the most i antic 'acknives ever handled and
. . . g S l
carve the grandest 1n1t1als ever seen. And, of course, they must not forget to buy annual
pledges, make the honor rolls, and try out for debating-fwhen they grow upj.
In other words, we're asking them to be hard-working, clean, wholesome sports.
Frosh, pull Elwood High out of the slump. Carry your innocence and great ideas
into your next three years. Make this an idealschool to attend. Realize your responsi-
bilities. And when you're teased by upperclassmen, consider the sourceg then you can
grin and bear it manfully.
You're all ri ht, and we're for ou!

You all realize to some extent the necessity of traffic regulations. It is a common
practise in large metropolises to have systematic orders that adequately regulate their
conjested districts. Moreover, the inhabitants and participants of such orders or cities are
willing, as a whole, to accept these rules as a benefit to themselves.
But not so with our own locality. Although we have a serious condition of affairs
at present existing around us, I am afraid, that we shall not be able to remedy it till a
tragedy has befallen our fair school. No one else but the student body is responsible for
our complicated confusion, and no one else desires to take the necessary measures to elim-
inate this impediment of our generally consistent and illustrious progression. The student
body as one voice should protest against this abominable condition that has been allowed
to develop in our educational institution.
If a similar condition existed in all positions of the system it might be excusable,
but for us to let one group of our student body to overpower the rest and gain control
over our property it is as stated before, abominable. The vitality has seeped out of our
veins and We are now docile individuals, who, having arrived at the point of complete
subjection, are willing to submit to anyinconvenience that may be infposed. Of course,
if this practice was just a spontaneous outburst from a certain 'distinct class, known as
Freshmen, it would be different, they might remedy it themselves. i 74'
But personally I know that this condition has been in existence for four years and
has been developing at an astonishingly large rate. It is surprising that no more students
are crippled than there are. If we let this condition continue to exist in two more terms
we may expect to have a tragedy at last once a week in our conjested transportation
hallway on the lower floor.
You all have attempted to pass through this carnivorous cavern at meal time when
all these ferocious females are on a mad rush for nourishment of some order. It is not only
improbable, but well nigh impossible to traverse through this "Hall of Fame" and emerge
at the other end with a shine still on your shoes. More probable it is that the shine will
be on your eye.
If this condition is to continue let us equip each student with a black jack and a
coat of mail-and may the best man get to class unwounded.

A INGLISH STOODENT SEZ:
CNote: The views expressed in this column are not necessarily those of the editorial department of
this publication, but the personal opinions of the undersignedg so we assume no responsibility for the
remarks made herein.J
As the years rolls by and the freshmens comes and goes, hurring throo the halls
pretendin as if only a minit wuz aloud between bells, we the moer ejicated skolars, offen
wonder what their consepshuns of various topics of the day is, espeshully some of them
that has been taxing are brains for some time, such as tring to conseev how mister Ashton
would look with a wig on or mister Fourney with a bow tie.
We cant imagin how mister Lindley would look with his hare combed like mister
Noodings or mister Nooding with his hare mussed up like mister Linleys. jist how dirty
wood mister Houses car git if them boys didnt wash it for him after school? Did eny
one ever see O.c. in a derby hat?
The most purplexing problem of them all, the one which girls have bin staying
awake at nites trying to solve is: how wood miss Mary e. Cox look with her hare babbed?
XVE allso Wunder how miss Grossweg would look with a wind bloan. latin stoodents
have long bin attempting to picture miss Foote in a Romen togy and sandels fmaybec
sheed look like hister hillus in kiltsj. Another mistery that has tickled the curiosety
of the girls is: duz mister smith eat his peez witha nyfe or a spoon las if they should
have some reasom for wanton to knoj?
XVhat wood mister Kratlye ressembul playing a violin or a accordian? Vfoodnt it
be edicativ to see miss Allan out on a nature hyke with nickers on or miss Minik jist
after she had discovered one of them rarest, cutest little bugs? Jyst why is missez nees
sick a strick gardeen of the teachers bulliten bored!
How is a stoodent gona keep up on his skool wurk when he has to keep up on libery
roals? Maybec next year theyl put the libery rools in book form with too colors. Another
thing whats worryin me is why theres so much chewin gum on the hall floors when were
not allowed to chew it in the building. we heared there wuz a freshy boy got mired down
in chewin gum in the west hall on washingtunz burthday and they didn't git him out
till after spring vacation.
A freshmen has gotah learn a lotta things. Hes gotta learnta spell and punktuat
like we uppur classmeng hez gotta learn the difurence between UP and downg hez gotta
learn how to be abul to meet his girl between every class like bill meets milly.
Even you freshies have gotta learn thet teechers standin in the halls at mornins an
noons are not there tu beautify em. And youv gotta learn thet the peepel on Annyul
Staff aint neer so buzy as they let on. I'll probly lose my job fer sayin this about em so
I better say solong till-nex yere.

HERE'S TO ACTIVITIES!
A is for Activities as you can plainly see.
C is for the Clubs that we will always need.
T is for the Teachers who show us the way,
I is for the Interest that we need all the day.
V is for the Vim and Victory
If we win or if we lose.
T is for our Thanks sincerely
In having a school we love so dearly.
E is for our motto "Ever Increasing."
S is that we were Sincere when we put them
all together and made ACTIVITIES,
a word which stands for pleasure and
Activities have been considered the "spice of our high school life" for so long that
the ekpression has nearly become synonymous for the word. It was late before clubs
organized this year, but when they did they swept everything before them. New intefest
in the entire school curriculum became apparent and more than one person lamented
the fact that he could belong to only one club. And each club seemed to compete with
the others to see which could put the most work into Activities.
The motto of our school and Crescent has carried over into the activities, for each
passing year sees the founding of new organizations and the growing and strengthen-
ing of the old. Again this year each student was required to join one of the clubs, but
this is a ruling that no one in Elwood High finds hard to enforce, for every pupil looks
forward to the day when clubs meet and all petty worries are pushed back in the
lockers alongside our books. Then comes a glorious period of entertainment and general
Besides the clubs, which we immediately think of when Activities are mentioned,
we have the Band, Orchestra, Choruses, Plays, Operetta, and Debating teams. Each
student feels duly proud of all these and will long cherish in his memory the brilliant
victories and fine appearances they always make. A lv
But I must let them speak for themselves, so here's to Activities! May each student
of El. Hi. give his best to their progress and further development.

The Senior Class presented "Green Stockings" on january the eighth in the H.S. Auditorium. The
play was a success in every way and proved the assertion of "talent in our midst."
From beginning to end the spectators were interested and wondering what was going to happen next.
W'e shall all remember "W'obbles" as the one who made the play lively by his peculiar manner of making
others feel uncomfortable. Also the "Miss" showed her ability to be ready to face any emergency.
Nevertheless, these two would have made little progress if they had not been furnished the proper
support by all the east, so to the entire group goes the honor of presenting a good play-in a good way.
Mr. T. B. Lindley and Miss Mary Allen were sponsoring this play and we can not but compliment
them on their excellent efficiency.
In years to come we expect to hear of Elwood receiving fame in the theatrical world because of her
wealth of actors and

Sousa's rivals and our E.H.S. noise makers.
The Band has always played an important part in high school life. And anyone
who is unfortunate enough to be in the building after four o,clock on Tuesday and
Friday evenings can hear them practise and without half listening can tell that they
Most of the members of the band have been playing instruments since Junior High
days and are really accomplished. We're proud of them for they play those mighty
compositions with jaw breaking titles.
Of late their endeavors have been confined to playing the high school song between
halves at the games, but we know that under the direction of Mr. Bert the members are
capable of more than that. Why not have a band concert about once a month?
What's happened to the boys who used to march majestically out across the playing
floor and proudly flaunted the old Red and Blue in the face of the visiting fans?
We miss the pep and fire that we used to get from the band. They set the stride
for us. Let's take big steps while we're at it.
We sense that the band feels mistreated and probably unappreciated. The number
of members has gradually decreased until at present there are only a few noise-makers.
If you know of anyone who plays, or if you play yourself, let's make the band larger.
The more players, the more noiseg the more noise, the more pepg the more pep, the better
the school will be. I-lbw about it?
Let's hear more of the band!

On the night of Friday, january 23, 1931. the tribes of the 4B and 4A classes assembled in the lower
hall of the Central Building to be entertained at a reception, that was well planned and most successfully
carried out by the members of the -WB class.
An inner feeling of curiosity prevailed among all the guests from the time the invitations were received
until that eventful night. These invitations themselves foretold a mysterious adventure. Arabian-does
that not arouse a feeling of mystery, adventure, and romance?
XVhen the guests had assembled, there was a great noise from the interior of the spacious hall and
Aladdin himself, appearing within the reception hall, bade us all to "enter within and await the many
pleasures in store-and may the memory of this night long remain as a treasure in your heart." We were
ushered into the banquet hall and beheld the splendors of the land of enchantment and surrendered to the
power of pleasure from a dream come true of a magic Arabian Night.
Tables for eight, with a hostess at each, were cleverly and artistically arranged in the banquet hall.
Suspended from the ceiling were large magic lamps illuminating the hall, together with two long tapering
candles on each table. Oriental rugs and tapestries decorated the walls,
Xve were no longer in Elwood but carried into a far off land witnessing the wonders performed by

This talented organization under the supervision of Miss Alacltson has appeared in puhlie to assist in
many school events and many outside activities. The Orchestra broadcast over the radio from Anderson
in October, it played for High School plays, Parent'Teaehers' meetings, Lyceum Ciourse numhers, and also
it furnishes music at eyery commencement exercise. They have exerted an effort to malte the public realive
that the presence of music is necessary to greater social development. The time spent in practise was for
learning concert programs including selections from operal, minas, etc. Also Semi-popular music was
practised to fulfill the ditferent requirements from all the pupils. This organivatiou is another of those that
are elective and the pupils that are in it are there for a purpose: that of learning music and hy their
playing the last year it appears as though they have accomplished that: we are now wondering how m.my
of the Seniors will continue in their musical careers after graduation. The High School Orchestra is a
wonderful help to anyone interested in music, but it should not complete .1 murieal learning: only serve as
a stepping stone. Don't quit, Seniors, struggle on and perhaps some day' you will bring a great honor to
yourself and indirectly to your school! Keep practising and perfection will come. Xve all appreciate the
playing of this group, hut we would hate to see them discontinue it as soon as they get their diplomas.

"IT HAPPENED IN HOLLYXVOODH A
The Dramatic Club Play, "lt Happened in Hollywood," was presented the fifteenth of May. lt was
quite a success, the eharaeters all portraying their parts very efficiently. The play was supervised by Mr.
Lindley, sponsor of the Dramatic Club. It was a elever three act comedy, very entertaining, full of action
It opens with Aloan Pembroke and a school friend of hers, Princess Delores, arriving home unexpectedly
from a girls' school abroad. Carolyn Fihe took the part of joan and Carolyn Fornshell, the Prinee-as. Mrs.
Pembroke, who was impersonated by Dorothy Higgins, not expecting the girls for some time, had left on a
trip abroad, leaving the home in charge of the butler, jarvis, who was portrayed by Robert Doerman.
.Iarvis in the meantime not expecting the family to be home for some time, had rented it to two gentlemen,
who it seemed had just eome to Hollywood, Mr. Alan Tremayne and Tom Garraghtyq Raymond Stokes
taking the part of alr. Tremayne and l'larry Campbell, Tom Garraghty the reporter.
The girls find that the house has been rented, and they eannot stay, so they dseide to pass as servants
and stay. .loan as Mehitable, the maid, and the Princess as Aunt Sarah, the cook.
-lust as this time news is circulated around that runaway Prince has come to lrlollywood to prevent
being rushed into marriage with a girl he has never seen. Naturally everyone suspects the stranger Mr.
Tremayne, to be the Prince.
lmmediately he is rushed with news-reporters, contracts for the movies, ete. Kathleen Yarling takes
the part of a very wide awake reporter named Phyllis. liven the two servants, Mehitable and Aunt Sarah,
believe him to be the runaway Prince. The part of messenger, a rather impudent little boy, who lends much
of the humor to the play was taken by Billy Fravier.
The play beeomes more eomplieatedfalr, Tremavne hires a new ehautieur who has just come to
llollywood. lrle is a foreigner and seems to have manners better than the ordinary chauffeur. The part of
the chauffeur was taken by Tom Lindley.

A club composed of actors. In this club we have any character from civil war
veterans to society butterrhes. It's certainly queer what a little grease paint can do, and
it's equally as astonishing what wonderful results this club has in everything it attempts
whether it is ticket selling or play presentation.
The Dramatic Club is chief booster of the debating team.
Mr. Lindley is sponsor and his success in directing the presentation of "Green
Stockings" proved his ability to supervise in Dramatics.
Mary K. Higbee wields the gavel and Ray Stokes acts as vice-president, while Karl
McCann lends his talent to writing up minutes and Ann Hurting collects and banks the
The meetings consist of initiation of new members and execution of dramatic read-
ings, pantomines and plays.

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
Some of these girls, we feel sure, are to be held partly responsible for all the torture
and agony in Room 304 at about the close of the third period. The tantalizing ordors
that oozed through two floors and reached the nostrils of students who had denied them-
selves a breakfast, were stirred up in sauce pans by these future housewives.
Misses Koons and Grishaw sponsor this group and teach the girls how to sew a
straight seam as well as how to prepare and serve appetizing old and new dishes in a
delightful way. The food value of many preparations is emphasized and the girls are
rather thoroughly prepared for that strenous job of house-keeping.
Dorothy Avery presides.
If you can hear above the click of the typewriters, listen to this one. Mrs. Neese
is sponsoring a club that means business. By joining this club each member has signified
that he is interested some way in the commercial world. They plan to visit factories and
study surrounding business conditions.
Dorothy Gritton is "her honor, the president," with Eva Ford as next in line for
the chair, and Roberta Hamm makes use of her bookkeeping ability in her position as
Tune in on this one. When we say that here's a club that is really worth while
you'll.have to admit that it's not all static. When this club was organized there were
new distances to conquer in the radio world. At each meeting they discuss radio projects
and listen to that Wizard, Mr. Champion, who is sponsor. The mystery of the radio is
still unsolved. Who knows but that some day one of these pictured above may astound
the world with some theory that is greater than Einstein's? When the course of meet-
ings is over each member should have an idea as to how to set up a radio. Isn't that

It's for the members of this outfit that we have our E-E-E-L-XV. Each of these
now has earned his letter in either track, basketball or football. "Heap Coach" Naugle
sponsors the group by virtue of his position as athletic coach. This club forms the
nucleus of the high school spirit. Teams founded on academic subjects have their places,
but it takes fellows such as these and the flash of the Red and Blue to put the real feeling
into the student body. This club produces clean sports and the makings of good citizens.
Burl Heflin, who is also one of our local "Hot Blasts," is the president, with Robert
Hunt seconding the motion, and Bill Wright paralyzes members with the mighty words
he uses in his minutes.
Yes, they're a wonderful organization.
BOOSTER CLUB 5
Here's what puts the Rah Rah in the Elwood Locomotive. These leather lunged
Boosters devote a considerable amount of their meetings to yell practice. Proper initia-
tion of new members is absolutely necessary. They are all for clean sportsmanship and
die hard fighting. Firm believers in giving the team "a pat on the back" they do not
willingly succumb before the prowess of alleged "booers." Wm. "Bill" Brogdon pre-
sides in the uproar with "Well-done." Shickley as next best. Quiet Ray Berryman
pockets the nickels and dimes and keeps tab on former meetings.
The boys of the high school are better acquainted because of the Boosters, and a
more "hail fellow" spirit is noticed in the halls.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC CLUB
There may not be a Stella Walsh or a Helen W' ills in this group, but it's certainly
there when it comes to selling Eskimo Pies at the games. Miss Clymer controls this
group of hefty athletic young ladies. They firmly believe in exercise and clear school
girl complexions. They certainly ought to make a Wonderful basketball team. Why
not have one?
When it comes to clean sportsmanship and fair play this group of girls is equal to
the mighty Booster Club. Watch them grow. Juanita French presides while Fances
McDermitt is efficiency itself in the position of secretary.

This group of boys represent a new Held in the way of outside activities. They are
a glee club organized from a chorus class under the leadership of our music instructor.
Miss Jackson. After forming into this group, Carolyn Fihe was selected as their pianist
and they have made a few public appearances this year.
As this is the first club of this type to be instituted in the school, of course, we
cannot boast of its great achievements. XVC will say that through the efforts of these
boys, We hope the public will recognize the accomplishments of our music department
and We promise with your support that many such glee clubs will start, giving Elwood
a higher rank as a school of talents in many different outside activities. These bays have
the honor of being the first "Musketeers" and we hope they will more often in the future
malie us willing victims of their muslietry.

Elwood High School's Knute Rockne of football.
Every year Mr. Naugle puts out a Winning football team,
4 and the student body fails to realize thc amount of work
1 and tireless energy it takes to keep the fight in his players.
He has instilled in each man a desire to play the game to
i the Hnish and this with the natural supply of high school
Q spirit makes our team rank among the "hard hitters."
He strongly believes in making each man do his hun-
dred yards as punishment for late hours or a bar of candy.
Out of a usual group of athletic boys he has developed
fine young men of hard muscle, steady nerves, and a well-
balanced sense of right and wrong in clean playing.
' Quiet but efficient we find Naugle "on the spot" in
X everything the school attempts.
We'll back him through thick and thin.

ROBERT HUNT KARL DENNIS
1 Captain Dennis led the Panthers through a very successful season. Winning eight
l out of ten games is a mark to be praised. In years to come all of us will remember the
team of '30, not because of the outstanding ability of any one playerg but as a team
that worked together in every game. Dennis has been a regular player on our squad
two years previous to this and was a veteran on the line. He was a sincere fighter for
N the Red and Blue. '
Robert Hunt had his name engraved on the Sellers cup this year. It is not the fact
of the engraving that should receive mention, but what it signifies. This is an acknowl-
edgement of the entire squad that "Scrump,' was the most valuable man to the team
this season. "Bob" is a four year man and we feel that he deserves the credit given him.
Every year a player receives a similar award as a reward for service, loyalty and sports-
manship. This practise has been in existence since 1924 when the Sellers Company
, donated a cup for this purpose. Here is a list of the different players who were chosen
by their own squads as the one worthy of this honor:

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL SEASON
SEPT. I2-ELWOOD 27: WESTFIELD 0
The Panthers opened their football season by trimming Xvestfield before a crowd of two thousand
under the new tloodlights. Elwood was one of the first in this section of the state to take up night foot-
ball. The lights cost approximately three thousand dollars, and have a fifty-four thousand watt power.
Not once did the Greeks threaten to score. Elwood made two touchdowns in the second quarter, the last
one the result of two well placed passes, Hunt to Huntsinger. In the final period, with three minutes to
play, Brogdon, the fleet-footed fullback, made the most sensational play of the game, when he snatched
a Wfestfield pass from the air and ran seventy yards for a touchdown. That red and blue line promises to
develop into a stone wall, while the backfield shows plenty of speed.
SEPT. 19-ELXVOOD 21, KIRKLIN 0
Another night game! The Kirklin eleven came to Elwood with high hopes, remembering their victory
in "Z8." After a punting duel in the first quarter, the Panthers scored early in the next period, taking
advantage of a break when Captain Dennis blocked a punt.
In the second half the Nauglemen, using line bucks and trick plays, crossed Kirklin's goal line three
times, one of these not counting, because of clipping by a Tinplater, as Doerman crossed the goal line.
After the game, one of the opposing players is said to have remarked, "If Elwood doesn't win the state
I'1l eat my hat."
SEPT. 26-ELVVOOD 193 TECH 0
The team was accompanied to the City by a large delegation of fans. The Panther machine did not
Click just right in the First half, although the pig skin was advanced to within one foot of the Tech
goal line. Three center plays failed and the gun went otf before a fourth play could be attempted. Coming
back strong, using a combination of the running and passing game, the Elwood eleven chalked up nineteen
points, while Tech was held without a score. The Panther goal line is yet to be crossed.
OCT. 3-ELWOOD 143 MARION 12
The Marion eleven proved toube a tricky, fast team. In the second quarter, a dusky Giant end
intercepted a pass and ran ninety yards for a touchdown. A few minutes later they pushed over another,
as a result of an Elwood fumble on the twelve yard line. In the second half the Panthers played straight
football, taking the ball through the Marion line on center and off-tackle plays, scoring two touchdowns
and both extra points. The attempts of the Giants to score again were in vain.
OCTOBER 10-ELWOOD 6, SHORTRIDGE 13
The failure of the Panthers to score, after advancing the ball almost to the last white line, in the
first few minutes of play is probably what cost them their first defeat. The Panthers were unable to
make their claws stick onto Bulliet, the Shortridge star, who really is a bullet in football shoes. Shortridge
crossed the Elwood goal line in each the second and third quarters. The Tinplaters scored in the final
period, when Hunt threw a long pass to Huntsinger.
OCT. 18-ELWOOD 64 KOKOMO 6
Elwood and Kokomo have fought on about even terms in the last three years. In "ZS" Elwood won
6-Og in "29," visa versag and now in "EIO," neither team acquired a scoring margin. It was a cold bitter
day and there was fumbling on both sides. Kokomo scored in the first quarter, advancing the ball on end
runs and line plunges. A few seconds before the half ended, I-Ieflin was put out of the game with an injury
which laid him up for the rest of the season. In the third quarter, the Panthers advanced the ball deep
into the enemy's territory on a long pass. Brogdon plunged it over the goal line.
OCT. 25-ELWOOD 05 VVABASH 0
The game was played on a very dusty field, at times so dusty that it was difficult to see the players.
The Panthers defense was strong but their offence was not up to standard. The backfield was weakened
considerably without Lamb and Heflin. Elwood threatened Qto score in the first quarter, but lost the ball
on the fifteen yard line. In the fourth quarter, Wabash pbnted and downed the ball on the one yard
line. Hunt kicked it back out of danger. Both teams tried many passes but without much success.
NOV. 1--ELWOOD 195 ANDERSON 7
Again the redskins were trampled under. The contest was close in the first half, the Panthers scoring
late in the second quarter by a pass, Hunt to Brogdon. Coming back with their savage blood aroused, the
Indians pushed over a touchdown and also made the extra point. Score-Elwood 6g Anderson 7. The
Indians did not enjoy their lead long. In the same quarter Doerman, that fleet Panther quarterback, behind
beautiful interference, ran back a punt fifty yards for a touchdown. The Panthers scored again in the
fourth quarter. Muncie is next.
NOV. 8-ELWOOD 73 MUNCIE 15
The Panthers invaded Muncie with the expectation of bringing home the bacon, but the Bearcats,
with one black cat in their midst had no bacon to spare. The Panthers got the breaks in the first quarter,
but were lacking in the extra punch to enable them to score. The Muncie eleven worked line plunges and
tried trick plays which netted them two touchdowns. Muncie got a safety when Hunt, Elwood punter,
stepped out of bounds on a kick. The Panthers came back strong in the fourth quarter, but were able to
score only one touchdown. '
NOV. 15-ELWOOD 16, BLOOMINGTON 12
The finish of the 1930 football season was done up in great style, the Panthers defeating the college
town boys on our home field. There was much "raking and mud throwing" as the field was wet and
soggy. The Panthers were more superior to the Bloomington eleven than the score would indicate. "Rip"
Yohe played a great game in his new backfield position, while Hoeffer starred at end.
NOV. 21-ELWOOD 7g ALUMNI 0
This is the game that proved that the present generation is as good and better than the older. This
game was played between the fighting Panthers and the ex-Panthers, and the receipts taken went for the
benefit of charity. It seemed that the old members had lost their teeth and were unable to bite. Thinking
that the boys of '30 were rather tame the Alumni were prepared for a short practise. Before the game
was well under way, it was apparent that who ever won would know that they had done'something.
Wm. Brogdon discovered that his little brother "Joey" could tackle if he tried to get past him with
the ball. All the way through this game was very interesting because all the bystanders knew both groups.
In the third quarter the squad of El. Hi. crossed the goal line for a touchdown. This was the score at
the end of the game--sad, sad, that bitter wail! We Seniors feel sure that if such a game is held next
year that the Alumni will have better success!

playing the rest of the
season. He had plenty of
fight and was always
ready to carry the ball.
We're expecting great
things from him the next
Owens served at the
guard position. Not so
fast, but he played a con-
sistent game. Raise lots
of hogs, "Farmer," for
we want bacon next year.
Besides knowing how
to handle the women,
"Bob" can handle a foot-
ball equally as well. He
was injured during the
season but will be there

THE SEASON'S RESULT
NOV. 26-ELWOOD 20g NOBLESVILLE 30
Defeat was suffered by the Elwood High School basketball team in its Erst game of the season at the
hands of the Millers. The Panthers lacked practise while their opponents had already turned back Frankton
and Lebanon. Havens, Panther floorguard, was high point man, caging four field goals and two fouls for a
total of ten points.
DEC. 5--ELWOOD 283 BROAD RIPPLE 30
Hunt started the game off with a long one from the middle of the floor. This lighted the fire works
which lasted throughout the entire game. The score was tied at the half 14-14. In the second half the
score was tied at 17, 22, 25, and 26 all. In the last two minutes Broad Ripple rallied a little to win the
game by sinking two field goals. The scoring for the Panthers was well divided, Hunt leading with six
DEC. I2-ELWOOD 193 SUMMITVILLE 16
The Panthers broke into the lime light by defeating the Goblins who boasted a long string of victories.
Elwood led at half-12-7. The Goblins came back strong, but were unable to wholly recover the five
point difference. A long field goal by Brogdon and a neat shot from one side of the floor by "Pete" Lewis
won the game.
DEC. I9-ELWOOD 9, SHORTRIDGE 20
Shortridge added another victory to their string. The game was one sided but at that it was better
than many Elwood fans expected it to be. With Burns, six feet and four inches, as their center, Short-
ridge controlled the tip the entire game.
.1 DEC. 20-ELWOOD 11, ATLANTA 25
It was quite a surprise for the Elwood fans to hear that the Panthers were defeated, and by such a large
score. The Atlanta five had their plays down to perfection on their small floor, and once they got ahead,
which was in the first few seconds of play, they did not stop.
V JAN. 2-ELWOOD 16: WINDFALL 21
What a game! We don't wish to make excuses, but if the gun had been shot sixteen seconds sooner,
Elwood would have won. With only fifteen seconds to go, and the Panthers one point in the lead, a foul
was called on Elwood. This tied the score and made it necessary to play an overtime. In the extra period
Elwood made two points while the Bulldogs scored seven points.
JAN. 3-ELWOOD 16: SHARPSVILLE 33
At half it looked like another close one, like the Windfall game the night before. Perhaps that's what
the Nauglemen thought when they had broken even on points during the first half, the score being 12-12.
However, it was a different story. In the second half Sharpsville rained them in from all angles. It was in
this game that Joe Brogdon helped Albert Shuck in his cause to improve the dentistry business in Elwood.
JAN. 9-ELWOOD 16g TIPTON 27
Again the Elwood basketball team was defeated with 16 points as their score. Tipton led at the half
with a five point lead, which piled up considerably more in the second half. L. Pearce led the scoring for
the winners with a total of 13 points. Benedict, with two field goals and one free throw, led the Panther
JAN. 16-ELWOQD 23, PENDLETON 19
It was the second win for the Panthers out of nine starts. "Scrump" Hunt "got hot" and swished the
draperies for a net score of eleven points. Big "Ben" was notvfar behind him with ten points.
JAN. 13-ELWOOD 199 FRANKTON 15
N Elwood had numerous under-the-basket shots during the first half which were repeatedly missed.
Frankton could not break through the Panther defense except fora lone field goal, making the score at
half time, Frankton 2, Elwood 5. At the beginning of the third quarter Elwood was leading 13-3.
Frankton rallied to push their score up to fifteen. The Panthers, however, tallied five points to stay in the
lead. - 1,

JAN. '24-ELWOOD 8g ALEXANDRIA 13
Elwood led 4-0 at the end of the first quarter, but made only one point to the eight points made by
Alexandria in the second quarter. In the second half both teams scored one field goal. Alexandria made
three free throws while Elwood made only one. The Panthers' foul shooting was very poor. They made
only 2 out of 11 free throws. Alexandria made 5 out of 9.
ELWOOD 29 Cconsolationjg FRANKTON 11
The Panthers proved their superiority over the Frankton five in the consolation game. Elwood fought
hard the entire game. During the last quarter the first five was substituted.
JAN. 30-ELWOOD 145 ALEXANDRIA 30
The Panthers were unable to break up the slow offense offered by the "Ornermen." Alexandria has a
unique set up for their offense. Instead of playing three men down the floor, with one on the foul circle,
they use only two men in offensive territory with three men back. This seemed to work very effectively.
FEB. 7-ELWOOD 325 FAIRMOUNT 16
This is the kind of a game the supporters like to see, although it was not a very evenly matched contest.
The score at the half was 13-7 with Elwood leading. In the second half "Scrump" Hunt caged six field
goals and one free throw for a total of sixteen points for the entire game. It was sweet revenge for the
38-39 defeat last year.
FEB. 13-ELWOOD 20g LAPEL 30
The Panthers went good in the first quarter leading by four points: Elwood 8g Lapel 4. At the end
of the half the score was 14-11 with Lapel leading.
At the start of the second half, A. Havens tied the score at 14-14 with a field goal and a free throw.
Then Lapel ran the score up to 28 before Elwood made another point.
FEB. I4-ELWOOD 17g ALEXANDRIA 24
The game was more closely contested than the score would indicate. Alexandria started out in the lead,
but the Panthers knotted the score at the end of the first quarter, 6-6. Then the Tigers took the lead
and were not headed throughout the game.
FEB. 20-ELWOOD 275 TIPTON 23
For the second straight year the Panthers defeated the Tipton five on their own floor after losing to
them on our floor. It was much like last year's game. After trailing at the half, 16-9, the Panthers came
back strong to tie the score at 22 all, and then forged into a five point lead before the final whistle.
FEB. 21-ELNVOOD 145 WINDFALL 16
The scoring was unusually low for the first quarter, only a field goal being scored on each side. In
the second quarter Elwood was held scoreless, while Windfall boosted their score to 7. Huntsinger was the
star of the game, having made 10 of the 14 points made by the Panthers.
FEB. 27-ELVVOOD 223 PERU 25
The boys of "Circus City" expected a set-up, but the Panthers hit their stride to give them a close
tussle. Elwood led 13-8 at the half, but were unable to stay in the lead as the game continued. They had
a one point margin on Peru at the end of the third quarter. From then on it was nip-and-tuck with Peru
winning in the last few seconds of play.
FEB. 28-ELWOOD 355 SHARPSVILLE 40
The Panthers fought hard to avenge the severe beating administered by Sharpsville in a previous
contest. The Sharpsville five usually took the tip, and scored on it numerous times. Seventy-five points
were chalked up, the largest number scored during the year.
MAR. 14-ELWOOD 24g SUMMITVILLE 31 fSectionalj
It was a repetition of the act staged last yearg defeat the Goblins during the season, and then get
beaten by them at the critical moment.

William "Pete" Huntsinger was selected as being the player, who was more respon-
sible in holding the team together than any other member of the squad. As in foot-
ball, the basketball members make this choice themselves and the player that receives
the award has an honor that deserves mention. Although not an outstanding star, "Bill"
was a consistent and sincere worker. He was always at practice and was very conscien-
tious in keeping training. The school always regrets when they lose this type of player
and we wish that El. Hi. has many more like him in the future.
When the Sellers cup was presented to the school another was presented by the
Citizens State Bank. The one member of the basketball team each year that was classi-
fied as best, was to have his name engraved on this cup. In the seven years that this
practice has been followed the following players have received mention.

He was right there when it came
to tipping the old ball into the

Perseverence receives its re-

for "Coach," who struggled for
four years to gain a name as a
basketball player. He "strutted
his stuff" during this season.

His heighth made him a valuable
man on the foul line, where he

THE CLASS TOURNAMENT
The drawings for the Class Tournament of 1931 were made in the usual way, the
Freshmen playing the Sophomores, and the Juniors playing the Seniors in the first games.
The first games were evenly matched, but it was evident that the winners of the Junior-
Senior game would be the Class Champions.
The Freshmen and Sophomores opened the tournament with a closely contested
game, the Freshmen finally rallying to win. At no time were the victors sure of winning
the game. The Freshmen scored the first point but the Sophomores soon retalliated. The
scoring was about equal, being tied many times but the team work of the Freshmen was
superior to that of the Sophomores. The Freshmen rallied in the last minutes of the
game to win by a score of 23-19.
The game between the Juniors and Seniors was expected to be a close one and so it
turned out to be. The game had progressed only a few seconds when Charles Heaton,
a guard for the Juniors, made a long shot count. Then the Seniors started playing a
cool-headed, hard-driving game. There was little scoring done the first quarter, but
before this period of the game was up Mills and Brogdon had been put in the Senior line-
up. The next quarter was one of heavy scoring on the part of the Seniors, Eschelman
taking the tip at center with Brogdon and Mills scoring quite often under the basket.
The Seniors had gained a comfortable lead of 14 to 7 at the half period.
The last half of the game looked quite differently, however, when Heflin, the star
player for the Juniors, began a series of hard drives. The strength of the Junior team

THE CLASS TOURNAMENT
QContinued from page 1061
was due to the ability of Heflin as a basketball player, who, although he was guarded
closely, scored 7 points, a very good percentage of their total score. The Seniors couldn't
get started and before the end of the third quarter the score stood 16-15 in favor of
the Seniors. The remainder of the game was a hard fought one with the Seniors winning
by a mere one point margin 18-17.
The Hnal game was played the next afternoon with the Seniors conident of a victory.
The game was interesting but a little one sided, the Freshmen being at a great disadvantage
because of their size. The Seniors held the Freshmen scoreless for several minutes, the
count at one time being 15-0. The Freshmen worked together like veterans while the
Seniors played a more or less careless game. Mills was the high point man for the Seniors
while jack Baxter starred for the Freshmen. Jack looks like a future basketball star.
The Seniors won by a score of 28-11.
The teams were coached by the following teachers: Seniors-Mr. Ashton, juniors-
Mr. House, Sophomores-Mr. Brown, Freshmen-Mr. Champion. The Senior Class
team has been coached by Mr. Ashton all four years. The boys and Mr. Ashton under-
stood each other and co-operated in a fine way. Good luck to you, Mr. Ashton, and
may your basketball teams in the future continue to win.

DRAMATIC CLUB PLAY
QContinued from page 765
In the meantime Mrs. Pembroke arrives home-she takes the whole affair as a joke
and lets the girls continue their disguise. The Prince's uncle, Sir Humphrey, played by
Dallas Smock, arrives and seems very anxious about the marriage of his nephew. Sir
Humphrey takes the wrong girl to be his nephew's fiance and the girl believes the Mr.
Tremayne to be the real Prince. Sir Humphrey tells her he will go speak to his nephew
immediately about their marriage.
In the last act the whole affair is untangled. The movie actress finds that Mr.
Tremayne, her supposedly Prince, is no' other than a young fellow who is trying tof
make good and get into the movies. He has used all this publicity as a means of becoming
a star. When Miss Downing finds he is not the Prince she is no longer interested and
leaves. During this time the Princess Delores had fallen in love with the chauffeur who
was really the Prince, both having run away to Hollywood to keep from meeting each
other. And Joan, while playing the part of Mehitable, had become very interested in
Mr. Tremayne. Alan Tremayne decides to give up the movie job and to go back home
and take Joan with him. The play closes with a happy ending.
The entire cast deserves much credit for their ability and splendid cooperation.

At last the magic word was spoken and Seasame, the rock, was suddenly thrown
and any form of entertainment that Aladdin wished was revealed. We beheld a play
entitled "Aladdin's Wife"g different groups of choruses, and numerous speeches. Glanc-
ing at the program we noticed that a Big Surprise, an entertainment by the Nobility was
listed and it was still a mystery. While we were wondering about this Aladdin announced
that this would all be explained if we would follow him. We were led from the school
building to the Mack Theatre where all attendants of the reception were admitted to the
midnight show, "The Royal Family of Broadway."
This concluded the program that had been entertaining from start to finish. The
Arabian spell having been broken, we departed taking with us memories of that event-
ful night, that will stay with us forever.

Our commercial department made .quite a name for themselves in the inter-school
contests. A district meet was held on April 18 at Anderson, Indiana, with fourteen
schools represented. With only three teams Elwood made second place and Anderson
who was Hrst had five teams entered. The members which composed our teams were as
follows: Typing-Dorothy Gritton, Evelyn Leisure, and Eva Fordg Shorthand---Martha
Jane Hackett, Martha Karch, and Evelyn Leisure, Book-keeping-Trula Owen, Martha
Beckett, and Mina Sprong. The typing team gained first mention, consequently they
were in the State Finals at Muncie on April 25. The book-keeping team came in second,
while the shorthand team rated fourth. For many years Elwood has gone to the state in
the commercial contests and it is to some extent due to the efficient training the students
receive during the school year. Mrs. Neese, the instructor, should be complimented on
her good work. She has given much extra help in order that the contestants would make
the best possible showing. All the members are willing to share with her the honor be-
stowed upon them.
A mathematics contest sponsored by the Indiana University Extension Bureau and
the Mathematics division of the State Teachers' Association was commenced this sem-
ester. The procedure was similar to all such contests with a local elimination, then a
district, and last a state final. Only first year algebra students were eligible for entrance.
In the local contest Edward Boggess placed first and Robert C. Smith second. Those
boys journeyed to Muncie to compete with other schools for district honors. This was
on March the 28th and we were defeated there. Edward got fifth, and Robert seventh.
This was the first year for the Algebra contest and we hope that in the future Elwood
will have the privilege of going to the state. However, the school should feel proud of
the distinction that these boys made.
Along with other school activities the melodious division should not be overlooked.
All of us remember the chorus class that caused so muchnoise the fourth period every
day. From this class of singers four were selected to represent Elwood in the State
Chorus contest held at Indianapolis. These four people were given the honor after a
careful consideration of the talents of the various students: Mary McCarel, Florence
Springer, Rex Lineberry, and Eldon Ashton. Perhaps we will have a state trophy next
year because of our vocal abilities.

Each year a contest is held in the various counties to determine which school has
the boys that are the best judges of livestock. This affair is sponsored by Purdue Uni-
versity and the winners of the county meet represents that county in the state final at
Purdue on May 5-9. In Madison County the contest was held at the farm of Michael
Meyer, in Duckcreek Township.
There were teams composed of five members each entered from Alexandria, Sum-
mitville, Pendleton, Anderson, Lapel, and Elwoodl The team from Elwood was Howard
Peters, Clifford Curliss, Woodrow Meyer, and Ralph Freeman. Elwood placed first and
these boys will go to the Purdue "round-up" to compete for state honors.
Another distinction was gained for the school by this department last fall. A
Holstein heifer entered in the State Fair, won first. This calf was the property of Dan
Clymer and this rating gave him the right to enter the calf in the International Stock
Show at St. Louis, Missouri. Here the prize heifer placed seventh. This is quite a show-
ing when stock from all over the world is at the show.
The State Latin Contests were organized in 1924 at Indiana University, at the sug-
gestion of the State Latin Teachers' Association, for the purpose of stimulating interest
in the study of the classics.
Our esteemed Latin instructor, Miss Foote, is a member of the State Latin Com-
At the state contest in 1927, 285 schools were entered. The contest in 1930 spon-
sored 400 schools.
There were two representatives from each of the five divisions frepresenting four
years of Latinj. From Elwood High at the preliminary contest, held February 12, four
representatives were sent from the preliminary to county contest, held on February 28.
The district contest, on April 3, was held at Indiana University at Bloomington.
In former years we had contestants to enter the State contest, but'this year we
were eliminated in the district.

THE PSALM OF WILLIAM HOBBS
Miss Grosswege is my teacher, I want no moreg she maketh me prove mine prob-
lemsg she leadeth me to exposing ignorance before the classg she maketh me get my les-
sons for my grade's sake. Yea, though I study all night, I shall gain no algebrag the
problems anger meg the decimals provoke me. She prepareth a test for me in the pres-
ence of mine enemiesg she giveth me a poor grade, for my work runneth not over. Surely
zero and failure will follow me the rest of my days, and I will dwell in E. H. S. for ever,

LOCAL POET BREAKS LOOSE
My heart is filled with joy to-day
And why it is I can not say,
It might be love-it could be-yes,
And th:1t's as good as any guess.
All that I know-I'm filled with bliss,
For I have just received 21 kiss,
A kiss which leaves me very weak
A kiss of snowflakes on my cheek.
