'Glue winged Uictorg
p reproduction of the famous winged Victory of Samothrace is
the first object to greet the eyes of the student as he ascends the
front stairs of the high school building. The location of this work of
ancient art is an appropriate and significant one. It is the symbol of
intellectual achievement, toward which every school should lead.
Though to some the Winged Victory may be only a plastic encum-
brance, to others it bears a symbolic interpretation.
The Winged Victory, or Nike of Samothrace, was discovered in
1862 on the island of Samothrace in the Aegean Sea. It was one of the
many erected by the Greelzsto Nike, the goddess of victory, and the
winged messenger of Zeus and Athena. The original is now at the
Louvre, in Paris.
To be the possessor of- even a facsimile of this famous piece of
Grecian sculpture is no mean privilege. To be the possessor of an in-
ternal urge to rise out of one's old self--to refuse to be hampered by an
undeveloped mentality--that is more than a privilege: it is a genuine
The emblem of mental advancement is the Winged Victory--or
would you prefer the Laocoon?

THE foundation for the first commissioned high school in Elwood was laid in 1888
under the administration of Herman F. Willkie, who was then the superintendent.
In 1890 the high school consisted of 42 students and a course of two years duration
under the leadership of T. F. Fitzgibbon. In 1891 there were approximately 52
students. It was at this time that Mr. Fitzgibbon sent in a petition for a state commis-
sion for the Elwood High School. L. H. Jones, at that time superintendent of the
Indianapolis schools, was delegated to visit the classes of Elwood in behalf of the State
Board of Education. He reported favorably and in the fall of 1892 Elwood High
school received its commission. At this time a four-year course was adopted and the
courses of study were greatly enlarged. In 1893 it was decided to erect a new building
which was suited for the anticipated growth. The classes were then held in the Linwood
building while the new building progressed. There was an unavoidable delay in the
creation of the new building, and the classes were then held in the Odd- Fellows' hall.
The facilities were scarce and at times, owing to the cramped position, a few classes
were held in a barber shop. On February 1, 1895, the new school was completed and the
students were installed in the new building, and took up their work in what is now the
Central building. It was then regarded as the finest in the county. The high school
and grades were both in this building until September, 1915, when the present up-to-date
building was completed.
This present building is under the supervision of Mr. Smith, and the leadership of
Mr. Hillis. The courses that can be pursued by the students are the ones preparatory
for .a college entrance course, a business course, a vocational or an industrial course
The faculty is composed of a fine teaching staff, and, under their guidance, the students
are making great progress in their everyday school life. The school is well equipped

HN visualizing a man of tomorrow we shall not allow our imaginations to run rampant
and produce a Frankenstein--a superman with an abnormal intellect. Instead we
shall remain within the range of human possibilities and attempt to picture an average
man of a future civilization. We are concerned with the man himself, his personality
and the things he will do to attain the fuller and more meaningful life.
His Hrst great characteristic will be self-reliance, and as a result of this, his mode
of living will be on a higher plane than ours. He will believe in himself, in his own
thoughts and emotions, he will follow his own code of living. In this code he will place
his own ideas foremost, but at the same time will not be intolerant of other men's in-
N l S
telligence. His perfect understanding of himself will aid in the understanding of the p
cares and trials of his fellowmen--the scales will fall from the eyes of Justice, he will
I judge all deeds by the motives behind them and not by the exterior effect produced. -.U pl, f

Senior Class fl-listotg
ENIORS! What a lot of them! A hundred and eleven to be exact. A noisy bunch.
A peppy bunch, yes, and a brainy bunch, too. Such are the words of a senior. Ser-
iously, it has been a class Elwood High School might well be proud of. Their achieve-
ments during four years have left a fine record, one which every class will have to work
hard to equal. They have enthusiastically entered every field and with enthusiasm
accomplished their tasks.
' I O
Not once during the last year has the honor roll been without the name of one
senior or more. The class has had for four years a fme record of intellectual ability.
The debating team was composed of four seniors out of the team of six. Four sen-
iors entered the Discussion League which was open to all who wished to participate.
One senior by his oratorical ability succeeded in winning the county and district ora-
torical contests. These facts speak well for the class of '32.
The senior class play, "Junior Sees It Through," was a splendid recommendation for
their dramatic ability. The Bicentennial celebration was for the most part carried out
successfully by them.
Their ability has not been confined alone to scholastic achievements, but has spread
to athletics. Three seniors did their part to add to our fame on the basketball floor and
six seniors fought their fight on the football field.
The last evidence of senior ability is the year book of '32, directed and carefully A
edited by the seniors.

Special to the United Press:
BLWOOD, INDIANA, Dec. 19, 1952-The details of the class reunion, recently
held by the Class of 1932, E. H. S., are at last ready for the press. Until the smoke had
died away, it was not possible for anything to be learned, and though the reporters
swarmed about the schoolhouse for several days, it was not until today that anything
definite could be found out. The complete details of the reunion are given as they ap-
peared in the minutes of the meeting.
The reunion of the class of '32 E. H. S., was called to order by Pres. Barnes, in the
auditorium, Dec. 10, 1952. A report of the activities of the secretary, D . m ell,
in rounding up the Aiumni was read. The report is as follows: IM i
"Senator Jackson nformed me, Aug. 10, 1952, that a reunion of the class of '32
might be appreciated by the -rbpemlfrs and asked my co-operation in making the said
reunion a success. I Immediatbwt set Rout to find as many as possible of my old class-
mates and inform them of the impending aHray.W .
"My search took me iirst to Elwood, where Bill Wright and his Esquimoes were
playing daily to capacity houses in the new and greater Princess Theatre. Directly
across the reet I found the Klienbub Beauty Shoppe. Upon entering, I was accosted
by M:: rel, who would have immediately touched up my somewhat bedraggled
permanent, had I not politely but violently desisted. I
"From the beauty shoppe, I staggered to Leeson's Hardware and encountered Bruce
Allen, president of the Madison County House Thief Detective Association. Having
first searched my person for a stolen house, he consented to accompany me to the Police
I . Q - pdvrnff'
Station in an attempt to persuade Chief Courtney to attend.
"Leaving the Police Station behind, we swung into the spacious thoroughfare that
was Main Street. Down Main to Apgerson, thence to the offices of the Water Co.,
I. U 44" ' 'Y . . . .
where G orge Barnes and "W'alt,' Murphy held sway. We were invited to sit in on a
poker game but declined.
"At the library, our next stop, we found "Frosty" Mu ay acting as librarian in the
absence of Le ie. Proceeding to the school building, we d1SCOVCf6d Principal
Harrold in conference with Commercial Instructor Bishop.
The canvass of Elwood being completed, Anderson next received our attention
In the Anderson High School, we encountered Miss I-Iettmansperger, head of the Phy-
sics Dept. and Prof. W. R. Smith, teacher of Chemistry.
"In the Post Office, we interviewed Miss Phipps, U. S. Internal Revenue Collector.
She put us on the track, of fRipj Yohe, lately made Warden of Sing Sing.
"We wired a report of our efforts to Senator Jackson, who caused Washington, D.C.,
to reveal the whereabouts of Verl Dietzer and Lawrence Hirschinger.
By running an ad in the personals column of the New York Times, we brought to
light the Wilson brothers and Joe Brogdon. A similar ad in the Chicago Tribune
brought a letter from Ray Legge, Mayor of Cicero, Illinois.
"Even with our almost miraculous success at finding the missing members, a great
number of them still remained at large. Reading a newspaper one day, I chanced upon
a picture having a familiar look. Consulting my Crescent, I found it to be none other
than Bob Wesseler, millionaire oil man and partner of the original Weldon Shickley.
"This concludes the report of the efforts of myself and the United States Dept. of
Justice to notify the members of the class of '32 of the impending reunion. I thank
you." fapplause, applause, applause, applause, and still more applause.j
A sharp disturbance, instigated by Billy Frazier and concerning peanuts, was quelled
with difficulty. i
Suddenly t-here came a knock on the door. Sergeant-at-Arms Brogdon, accompan-
ied by Warden Yohe, answered the summons and discovered a very small and apparently
feeble man of great age, leaning on the arm of a Boy Scout. The octogenarian proved
to be none other than C. C. Hillis, he having been the victim of an unsuccessful opera-
tion, intended to make him once more eighteen years of age. The Boy Scout was Basil
I-Iosier, who had had the same operation performed with an exceptional degree of success.
By this time the crowd had become large enough to occupy all the seats in the bal-
cony and at least forty were sitting on the steps. The doors had been left open to
provide a sufficiency of air, ventilating facilities in the Auditorium being fully as bad
as in '32.
The next attendance report was given by Ed Clark, the niffy veterinarian, owner
of a dog and cat hospitable at Windfall. His report follows, ad verbum:
"Residing in Windfall are: Alton Gray, 'Beth' Ackerman, Ralph Robinson and
Bob Evans, the great cartoonist.
"From Windfall I went to Kokomo, where I found Jack Lehr and Paul Faulstick
trying to teach John Gmurk how to lay bricks. I became so interested in this spectacle
that I seated myself on the brick pile to await developments." fno applausej
2-3 ,fix ,ll
After the report by Mr. Clark, followed a song and dance number by the five
Somphy Sisters, the team which had been noted on Broadway for two years, consisting
of 'Lou' Morehead, Eileen Langston, Audra Day, Peg McDonald, and Kitty Dyer.
Charlotte Fihe and Lucian Weddell had collaborated in writing a life history of
George Huntsinger, but had not completed it, due to local interference from Deo Hinds.
Next on the program was a "Did you know" number by the famous successor to
R. L. Ripley, Dean of Women Butler of I. U. Miss Butler brought out the following:
That Lois Ault is a hostess in a night club? M
That Francis Baily is in the movies?
That 'Vi' Baker has had her face lifted?
Martha Becket is an aviatrix?
Dick Boggess runs a butcher shop?
Fanny Cook is a prominent chemist?
Harold Cricler is a minister?
'Buster' Curless raises hogs?
'Kate' Morgan is a barber?
Mauriettia McMincls raises chickens, and
Bill Frazier raises Cain?" i
By this time the meeting was getting rough and 'Rosy' Hasecuster suggested that
we sing "My Country 'Tis of Thee." Jean Leisure led with the piano and a hush fell
upon the crowd, since no one knew the words.
Pete Lewis gave a sample of an elocution lesson, to which the house responded with
huzzas, boos and cat calls. By this time the crowd was becoming unruly and the scene
became more and more like one of the old-time class meetings, so much so in fact that
Anna Harding sniffed and wiped her eyes with her handkerchief, because of the mem-
ories of old times. Q
Emily Loser appeared on the stage and asked that the crowd quietly proceed to the
gym, where they-would be served hot coEee and doughnuts. Q
As we were seated about the gym, mostly on the floor, Mike Kennedy made himself
toastmaster and called for after-dinner speechesf Clifford Drake, Russell Grose, Carl
Gross, Evelyn Moore, Bob Ormsby and Marguerite Persinger responded. They met
with some success, but not too much.
With ravenous appetites somewhat satisfied, the crowd sauntered back upstairs for
the rest of the program. A stirring, strong speech was made by H. Peters, president

Did you Know: , -
HE juniors are a very ambitious group. From the time they entered the high school
they have striven hard to uphold its standards and add to its good name by their
own efforts. Of course, as they can easily say, it has not all been easy nor have their
achievements been accomplished without a struggle.
There are several outstanding members in the class who have added to the class
honor by their individual efforts. However, it takes more than individual effort: it
takes cooperation on the part of the other members of the class to really do the things
which will be remembered by those classes which have not yet risen to the height of
being called juniors. Their progress has been sure and steady from the very insig-
nificant freshmen to aspiring juniors. They have taken an active part in all high school
activities including athletics, debating, annual work, and music.
The class has been organized now for almost two years and have shown themselves
very capable of choosing their officers and conducting the business of the class.
Thus far they have been very successful in all that they have undertaken and so
should be fully prepared for the serious business of being a junior. NWe wish them fur-
ther suceess in the path still before them, the path that leads to their goal-a high school

Why do you aspire

Always question your neighbor's English lesson. It uses the time and saves the
rest of the class the anxiety of reciting.
Tear your notes into the tiniest pieces possible. They are sure to fall on the floor,
flutter hither and yon, thereby creating an astonishingly artistic effect.
Hum in an undertone in class. You'll be surprised at the disturbance it causes.
When someone drops a pencil, do likewise with yours. This sound system is de-
lightful, and teachers will single you out for their attention.
Trip a classmate who might be passing your desk. This promotes gracefulness.
Spill as much ink as possible on the floor,--bluish-red floors furnish a modern touch.
Take charge of the window shades. They make excellent playthings. '
Speak low when reciting so as not to disturb the others who might want to sleep.
Furthermore, if you happen to make a mistake, it won't be noticed.
If you want to make a hit with the girls, try shooting bent pins. This will make
When passing someone, push him gently. It sweetens his disposition. i
Go up the stairs two steps at a time. It saves the stairs and give monitors work.
Drop the chalk on the floor. Then there'll be enough for everybody.
When bored, try yawning. It's catching, and amuses everyone. '
If the students take note of these rules of school etiquette, I am sure the school will
more smoothly. At least, it will be a pleashnt place for pupils.

He may be so reluctant about becoming a high school freshman that he lingers long
in the gradesg but at last, by an accumulated courage or a well meant push he takes the
plunge. In some ways it is unfortunate that the freshman year cannot be ignored and
a person entering high school become automatically a sophomore, or worse.
But here they areg so let's make the most of them. Let us contemplate their uncer-
tain future by numbers' CNO reflection upon our institution.j
Numbers one to fifteen will ride the crests of honor rolls and honorable mentions
through a blaze of glory in '35. i
Numbers sixteen to one hundred will struggle along somehow and accept their
diplomas as shamelessly as numbers one to Hfteen. H
Numbers one hundred to one hundred five will postpone graduation till '3 6, so are
not to be considered here. .
Numbers one hundred five to one hundred seventy-five will draw blanks without
ribbons wrapped around them. '
Numbers twenty to thirty-five will be athletes.
Numbers thirty-six to forty-eight will debate.

Number thirteen will lose his Senior Week. '

of the Board of the Elwood Lumber Co., and candidate for national forestry commis-
George McMinn, president of the noble Society of Letter Carriers, gave an address
on the post office and its place in the home. How the post office was to be placed in
the homes he did not choose to reveal.
Eva Ford, head nurse at Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, told of a few of the
nurses who had come from the class of '32. Mentioned by Miss Ford were: Marjorie
Lee, Jessie Moore, Trula Owen, Madonna Reigel, and. "Jo" Sharp.
In the business world, according to a report by "Dorn Higgins, were Martha Sav-
age, jane Hackett, Mina Sprong, Gretchen Tobias, and Helen Leaky.
Senator Jackson took the floor, following Miss Higgins, and gave the names of the
persons of the class of '32 residing in foreign lands, as furnished by Joe Fogerty, the
consul in Shanghai.
'- Chas. Heaton-Alaska.
Loretta Hockersmith-Berlin, Germany.
Post cards from these members were read by Max Moore, postmaster of Indianapolis,
and therefore the best post card reader of all those present. Post cards were read from
Harvard Reynoldsg Lena Robinson, Macon, Georgiag Edna Rounds, Gary, Indianag
and Mildred Hennigan, Ft. Smith, Arkansas.
Mildred Hackett, as delegate from Remy Electric Co., at Anderson, read the roll of
Delco-Remy employees who were unable to attend because of work. They were Mari.
jones, Bob Sillery, Lavonne Tubbs, Francis Whetstone, and Wilbur Webb.
Kathleen Yarling, successor to Sid Smith as the creator of "Andy Gump " favored
the meeting with a chalk talk and drew a souvenir portrait of Bob Woellwerts, division
superintendent of the P.C.C.C. 85 St. L.
Eugene Poole, "Eddy" St. Clair, Doris Thrawl, Margaret Gee, Roberta Hamm and
Clark Budd danced the minuet.
Bee Tomilson took the floor and commenced an address on the development of our
kindergarten educational system. After two hours of this all were asleep except the
Writers, Ruth Noble, Virginia Lamm, Dallas Smock, Helene Sizelove, Josephine Stevens,
Roy Hamm. Bob Kochman, Max Moore and Sam Courtney. Our reason for being
awake was the fact that we had two tables of pinochle going and we were playing it
tournament style, to determine the best player.
Dr. Campbell, seeing the shameful state of affairs, slipped out into the hall and
rang the fire bell. Thus the meeting was effectively adjourned.
A complete report and definite estimate of the damage will be available in a few days.

Q s the fable goes, there was once a high school principal who, very gravely, sum-
moned to his austere and awesome office three freshmen. To each of them in turn
"What is a school?"
The first freshman, who was a timid little boy with glasses, knee pants, and a very
correctly knotted tie replied hwith deliberation:
"A school is a building divided into class rooms in which there are teachers who
teach you much knowledge." .
The principal smiled faintly and turned to the second who was a vivacious little
blonde with red lips and that very frequent "fun before all" attitude. She seemed rest-
less and very slightly bored. In answer to the principal's question she heartily disagreed
with the little boy.
"A school's not a place to come and work yourself to death. It's the place to come
and have fun and meet lots of kids and see oodles of good-looking fellows, and have
dates and make dates to go to the parties and write notes and--and--enjoy yourself a lot.
That's what a school's for."
This time the principal smiled broadly, for the girl had presented a somewhat amus-
ing picture of optimistic adolescence. She stood on one foot and then the other' ges-
ticulating, and making free use of interpretative facial expressions.
The principal turned to the third who also was a girl. She had made good grades
and was at the same time very popular. Without the slightest hesitation she made her
answer to the question.
"A school should not be all fun and nonsense--neither should it be a clubhouse for
bookworms. A school should be part work and part play and should be the richer for
the union of the two."
As you may have guessed, the third reply was correct--and so a school should be.
As a well-known doctor states it, "A well-rounded day consists of enough work, enough
playg some use of the muscles, some use of the mindg some solitude and some companion-
ship." While the school does not occupy all of the student's day it occupies a major
portion of it and has a great influence on the student's life. Thus it should not benumb
him by too much work or spoil him by too much play. i
In "Activities" the many extra-curricular activties of the school are pictured.
These constitute the play side of the well-rounded school program and make it balanced.
Che y Staff
T last! Elle est fini. And what a relief! The making of the annual has been a
i 'steady grind all year. It's taken much time and patience. But, as any of the staff
members will say, it's been worth it.
The staf wishes to acknowledge the efforts of all those who cooperated in making
possible the publication of the 1932 Crescent and heartily to thank them.
This book is merely another edition of the Crescent and will pass and be forgotten
soon. But if we can catch and hold your attention for a moment by its contents we
shall feel that we have accomplished our purpose.

LTHOUGI-1 Elwood's debating season was not overwhelmed with victories, yet in
view of all facts it was a successful year. As we know, the real purpose of debat-
ing activities is to get as many interested in discussions of this kind as possible, thus
fostering speaking ability and a broad-minded view of public questions of the present
day. The largest number ever in the history of debating in Elwood High School pre-
sented themselves at the beginning of the season to participate in the discussion,
"Resolved: That the several states should adopt by law a system of compulsory unem-
ployment insurance." Many preliminary and extra debates were scheduled so as to give all
an opportunity for speaking. Elwood's Hrst team consisted of: Harry Campbell, Maxine
Phipps, and Howard Peters, Aflirmativeg William Harmon, Arvona Dowell, Woodrow'
Meyer, and Mary Jo Palmer, Negative. Others debating were: Betty Brown, Frances
Harrold, Moses Wittkampei', Harriet Lindley, Dorothea Culp, Josephine Sloan, Alice
Vinson, Marion Yohe, Eileen Rockafeller, and john Redmond.
Elwood's first team tied for second place in the District debate organization.
Since so many of the debaters this year were undcrclassmen, we feel sure that Elwood will
will accomplish great things in this Held in the future.

HIS year in Jungletown a new policy was adopted and just as any new policy does,
it met with criticism as well as applause. We of Elwood High have always main-
tained we were fair-minded in no matter what it be. For years the feeling of true
sportsmanship has been displayed in our battles on the Held or on the hardwood. Now we
were to have the greatest test of all, and how many of us measured up to it? We not
only attempted, but we succeeded in installing in our domain a movement that has
been prevalent among others of our kin throughout the Jungle, that of Student Gov-
ernment. From each class two were chosen to represent their group. They met with
approval of their group and also of our advisors. Their purpose was to show that we
were able to govern ourselves, not to be ruled by others, and for this purpose the monitor
system was put into effect. Of course, we all honor our school and hate to harm it,
yet there are some among us who continually break its rules. The monitors were not
spies nor "stool-pigeons," nor anything that some of the less fair-minded saw fit to call
them. They were merely helpers, helping you to understand the school rules and not to
violate them. The Student Council is yours, students of Elwood High School, yours
to make a success or failure. It will succeed only through your efforts and eo-operation.
The members who have ably guided the Student Council this year are: Frances
Harrold, president, Dorothy Higgins, vice-president, Harry Campbell, secretary, Max
Moore, Bruce Allen, Maxine Phipps, Mary McCarel, Helen Ruth Purtee, Dortha Yohe,
Alice Terwilliger, Bob Houser, and Bob Foster.

Oratortcal and Essag Contest
ARRY CAMPBELL was selected to represent the school in the county Oratorical con-
test to be held at Anderson. This contest is sponsored every year by the State
Bar Association and all schools are invited to participate. Campbell's oration was upon
"Personalities in the Constitutional Convention" and was extremely well delivered.
He was adjudged best at the county contest over entrants from Anderson, Pendleton
and Frankton. From this he went to the district where he won from the Greenfield
speaker. In the zone discussion he was defeated by Marks from Shortridge High School
of Indianapolis by a one point margin.
Miss Lena Wi1lkie's essay upon "The Privileges and Duties Under the Constitution"
was sent to the County Essay contest, which is also sponsored by the State Bar Associa-
tion, where it received first prize. Miss Willkieis essay also won over other entries at
the District and was given Honorable Mention at the Zone Contest.
Although neither of our entrants reached State we are very proud of their records
and congratulate them both upon their ability.

Hli Dramatic Club of lilwood High School presented the three-act comedy. "Noth-
ing But the Truthu on lfriday evening, April 22, to a large audience. The charac-
ters were well chosen and the whole play was extremely clever.
The entire play was based upon the observation that our social and business structures
are dependent upon a certain amount of deception and that any person who really told
the truth and "nothing but the truth" would be a social outcast.
As the story goes, Robert Bennett tries to prove to his employer, li. M. Ralston, that
he can tell the truth about anything for twenty-four hours. A bet is made, and as a
result, Bennett becomes involved in many amusing as well as absurd situations, including
a quarrel with his sweetheart, Gwendolyn Ralston. which almost results in an estrange-
ment, but all is finally brought to light and the play ends happily.
The cast is to be congratulated upon the success of the play as is also the production
staff and Mr. T. B. Lindley, who directed and coached the entertainment.

N essential part of every school is the band. Following the team, serving at home,
sacrihcing self in the interest of the school, the band is one of our organizations
which deserves a great deal of praise. Although our band is not a large one, it is never-
theless capable of making much melody upon demand, and our visitors have been im-
pressed by the support which this worthy organization lends to the games. Next year
We hope to see them marching down the field in a blaze of sound and glory, exhibiting
the crux of perfection in both harmony and marching technique. Witli an unexcelled
director and plenty of support by the students, our band promises to go far. Though
not large, the players are all talented and expert players on their various instruments.
Calm, capable, and digni-
Hed, this man is the instigator
of all the noise that our band
puts forth, and very pleasing
noise it is, too. In addition
to directing our band, he has
many added responsibilities
since he is also our instructor

of wind instruments. A tal-
ented musician, 21 perfect gen-
tleman, and a good friend to

success and coordination of
our Alma Mater.
El-fl-li's music makers
Norsk the careful supervision of Miss Edna B. jackson, a number of our students
have been engaged for the past year in the study of the best music of the best com-
posers, and have presented some very creditable,performances, both before the general
public and before the student body.
The orchestra, being divided into two groups, the "A" and the "B" group, has been
meeting several times weekly since soon after the beginning of school. Numerous
technical compositions were undertaken by these groups, and mastered by diligent prac-
tice and excellent direction. Many new members having entered our musical realm
since last year, some of the work was difhcult for all but the veterans.
Among the outstanding performances of the year was the Bicentennial program
held April 14, at which the combined orchestras, composed of thirty-two members, ren-
dered several well-appreciated numbers. In addition to the orchestras as groups, indi-
vidual members of the orchestra have at times given excellent account of themselves
before the public. Remember the day the Bell Trio showed up a group of professional
musicians, with a performance that far outdid that which we had paid to hear a few
days before? Each of these three students is a member of the "A" orchestra, and we
are certainly proud of their ability and willingness to appear before us. At the Bicen-
tennial program the String Quartet appeared with some dance pieces of the days of
Wfashington. Even though their wigs didn't lit, we are grateful for their spirit which
prompted them to share their ability with us.
Several of our veteran players are leaving us this year and are leaving some newcomers
to carry on. We hope they will carry on in the same spirit in which the orchestra has
been conducted for the past year. To these who are about to leave us we say, "Good-
bye and good luck," and to the ones who will compose our orchestra next year we say,
"Go on, and play as did the Orchestra of l932."
"Belle of 'Bagdadv
Y Y SSST-DEATHl,, and "Lucky Birdl' were only two of the popular phrases which
were heard echoing and re-echoing through Jungletown, after the operetta, "The
Belle of Bagdadf' had been given. The operetta was a big success as all those who saw
it will say. For who of us did not wish we might have been the fearless prefect, the
awe-inspiring Caliph, the oriental dancer or even the dainty "Belle" herself?
Fair day in Bagdad is marked by the arrival of various visitors. These, upon being
presented to the Caliph, and his daughter jewel, learn that an assassin is abroad who
carries a bomb concealed in a camera and for this reason, all persons with cameras are
to be shot immediately. Dick Taylor arrives by airplane from Hollywood accompanied
by his two mechanics in search of a lovely girl known only as the l'Belle of Bagdadf,
whom they are seeking to engage as a movie star. The only way they can identify her
is by some small photographs they carry and by an ancient amulet that she wears.
Therefore in order to make sure they bring a large camera with them in order to make
pictures of all prospects.
Dick meets Jewel, who welcomes him cordially, but the two mechanics, Bob and
Bill, meet Ali Ben Mustapha, the chief of police, who, upon seeing their camera, orders
them to be executed at once.
In order to escape, Bob and Bill resort to disguise: first, as dervishes, and afterwards
as members of the Caliph's bodyguard. While in this latter disguise, they manage to
capture the real assassin, and in return for their valor the Caliph orders jewel to present
Dick with the sacred amulet. This identifies her as the Belle, and Bill and Bob, with the
aid of the American consul, her daughter and her daughter's friend Anne are freed, and
the story ends happily.

N memory of the two-hundredth anniversary of George Washington's birth, four
programs dealing with some phase of his life were given by members of the student
body of Elwood High School. Each program, in a splendid manner, added something
to the memory of those who heard it concerning the father of our country. The music
department, the Girls' Physical Education Department, the Public Speaking Depart-
ment, and the History Department each contributed their bit to the storehouse of his-
The first program was presented by the senior girls in the Physical Education De-
partment under the supervision of Miss Leah Clymer. The program consisted of a
prologue written by Anna Harting, showing the dances of Colonel Washington's day
and a play entitled, "History Doth Repeat." The dances and acting were cleverly done
and met with the approval of the entire student body. All parts includingithe male
roles were portrayed by girls. By popular request the play was repeated before the
P.T.A. a few nights later and met with the same response here--one of hearty apprecia-
The Public Speaking classes next elected to present a program of six talks developing
Washington's life from his birth to his death. These talks, contrary to the usual run,
were interesting and instructive and held the student's attention from beginning to end.
Music of Washington's time, under the direction of Miss Jackson, came next in the
series. Patriotic music, popular songs, minuets, marches of revolutionary and post-
revolutionary period were given. Again the talent of the music department was ably
shown and the students might have congratulated themselves on having the opportunity
of participating or listening to the splendid activities of the department of music.
As was the first program, this was likewise repeated before P.T.A.
The last of the series was given by the Civics and Economics classes under the
supervision of Miss Cox. Excerpts from Washington's life were written by members of
the classes, and compiled, organized, and presented. The George Washington tableau
consisted of seven scenes: Washington's boyhood, Washington the Lover, Washington
the Soldier, Washington the President, and the people's idea of Washington and Grand-
father scene. As had been the others, this likewise was accepted with approval.
Miss Cox is to be praised for her direction of such a lengthy and numerous cast.

HI, vocational education law of Indiana was enacted in 1913. In this law, voca-
tional education is defined as "any education, the controlling purpose which is to
fit for profitable employment," and agricultural education is defined as "that form of
vocational education which Hts for the occupation connected with the tillage of the
soil, the care of domestic animals, forestry, and other wage-earning or productive work
on the farm."
The purpose of vocational agriculture education as expressed in the Federal Voca-
tional Education Law, known as the Smith- Hughes Act, which was enacted in 1917, is
"to Ht for useful employment .... designed to meet the needs of persons over fourteen
years of age who have entered upon the work of the farmer or of the farm home."
The aim of vocational instruction in agriculture in high school is to prepare the
pupil to meet with growing efliciency and happiness the progressive vocation of farming
Our own Vocational Agriculture department under the capable supervision of In-
structor Palmer xl. Davis has been ably filling the requirements of the Smith-Hughes Act.
The accomplishments of the boys in this work is ample proof.
THE 4-I-I CLUB
In order to carry out moi'e fully the aims of Vocational Agriculture and the hap-
piness of the farm, the 4-H Club was formed as a national organization.
The 4-H Club of the State of Indiana is sponsored by our only agricultural college,
Purdue University: and it is through its auspices that 4-H work has been successfully
More than a million boys and girls have been members of the 4-H Club and the
projects that it sponsors. Its widespread influence on farm boys and girls is being felt
more and more each year as they go about to "make the best better."

gpgjlf fReception of '82
tg HOY, there! Neptune, god of the sea, welcomes you to an evening of merriment
in his mysterious realm deep under the waves of the blueff Thus began another
reception--given by the classes of '32. Neptune, "mere maids," and their escorts all
enjoyed an evening of pleasure in the kingdom under the sea.
The scene was fifty fathoms down with the customary sand-bars, rocks and fish.
This unique entertainment was presented in the gymnasium for the seniors and the
illustrious facultyland was heartily enjoyed by all. The classes of '32 are the first to
inaugurate the idea of one reception instead of two. It is hoped and also expected that
the classes of the future will follow the precedent that the senior class has set.
THE Elwood Model Airplane Club was reorganized the last of March under the name
of the Elwood Air Cadets. It is part of a national organization. It does not func-
tion with any branch or meet any requirements, however. The club holds tournaments
every month and prizes are awarded to the winners. '
The purpose of the club is to be a means of occupation and entertainment for boys
outside of school hours. It teaches the principles of aviation and the fundamentals of
flight. The boys pick up most of the familiar terms of aviation. They learn the names
and types of the most familiar ships.
The Hrst tournament of the Cadets was held May 2, in the gymnasium. Due to the
low ceiling no long flights were made. The models were restricted to a fifteen-inch
motor stick. The tournament was divided into a junior and senior group. The junior
group included boys under sixteen and the senior group were boys from sixteen to
twenty-one. The results of the tournament in the Senior division were:
First: Lawrence Hirschingerg Second: George Huntsingerg Third: Herman Wed-
dell. Winning time: thirty-two seconds.
Junior Division--First: Francis Hendersong Second: George Sohn.
Winning time: twenty-four and five-tenths seconds.
The second tournament is to be held the first of June. It will be an outdoor affair
in the afternoon and there will be two types of planes, the tractor and the twin-pusher.
,A glider was built last year by high school students, and in the summer was taken to
the Clyde Owens' farm and tried out by a licensed pilot from Chicago. The ship proved
air-worthy and had but few minor mistakes.
After a few lessons from the pilot, the club took up self-instruction. Within four
days they were taking short hops, and after a month flights were undertaken, acquiring
an altitude of twenty to forty feet.
They moved the plane to a larger farm, and the members began trying to gain alti-
tude and making thirty to ninety degree turns. The glider made' about six hundred
flights during the summer without a single accident to anyone, although there were a
few unpreventable accidents to the ship. -
The club organized with the idea of acquiring elementary training in flying and to
produce a practical problem for students in aviation by construction of the glider.
To the active club members it proved a rare sport.

'rHLET1cs have been a subject of much debate in high schools in the state of Ind-
iana for many years. Their place has been questioned in the routine of the school.
But in most cases their intrinsic value has proved its benefits.
Athletics in the high school have tended to furnish a means of exercise for various
students who are able to take part in them. They not only have furnished mental and
physical exercise, but also have developed students' moral understandings. They have
taught the student to think quickly, be decisive, and be exact in his decisions. In many
cases athleticsvhave developed boys to better manhood and helped them to be respected
more by their fellow class-mates.
When a student reaches the required age of sixteen years, many decide to discontinue
their high school education. Athletics will encourage many of these students to con-
tinue their school Work. Several students, after leaving school, are urged by their
chance in athletics to return. However, the mere taking part in athletics does not ful-
fil the requirements of a pupil. These persons must attain certain standard grades set
by the schools, and they must conduct themselves as all other students. Thus athletics
are a means of helping students to finish their high school course.
Enjoyment cannot always be found in the high school curriculum. Students some-
time become tired of their daily routine of studies. Athletics furnish the light and
enjoyable study needed by boys of high school age. In athletics cooperation is an in-
dispensable factor, and all contenders are taught it and its value. The athlete not only
exercises this in his games but also carries it into the school room and into life in general.
This helps him to gain mutual understandings with instructors and students. When he
leaves school, he takes this with him and uses it in whatever occupation he may under-
As students of a high school, we see the necessity of athletics for proper education.
We know how school spirit, advancement, and success would be hampered by the dis-
continuance of athletics, and we see how large a gap would be apparent if athletics
were to be taken from the high school.

R. NAUGLE is our Football Coach and an excellent one. He has been with Elwood
M High School for three years and has made a great deal of progress in our athletic
program during this time. Jerry is always "right there" when it comes to having a good
squad and he certainly knows his football. To some he may appear quiet, but those of
us who know him admire his ready wit, keen sense of humor, and his cheery philosophy.
He came to us with splendid recommendations as a coach which he has more than ful-
filled and as well has showed us his ab'l'ty as a physical education director. O. C. 's al-
ways calm--he never gets exc'ted but he does hittle rather rapidly somet'mes at an
important game! H's teams may not w'n every contest but they have a organ'zat'o
that only Naugle can attain.
So here s to you erry!

A L s 7
4,34 This was the first home game of the season, and a large crowd witnessed it. Mr. Hos-
f' ' Q ier announced the game through the new dynamic speaker, a great improvement.
I" I Westfield's gridders were greatly outclassed from the start. The Panthers marched over
. A their goal line twice in the first quarter and the shock troops played the second quarter.
f ' Qi!! When the second half started, the first team resumed their playing and immediately
fi: scored two more touchdowns in the third quarter. Westfield took advantage of a few
N hx errors by the second teamers, and scored two touchdowns and one extra point with a
li. . place kick. The Panther Cubs were almost ready to score when the game ended.
. . K sept. zs ELWOOD, s TECHNICAL Qlndianapolisj, 6
After a rainy day the field was filled with mud and puddles. A pack of Panthers
came onto the field with a roarg chins thrust forward in the "do-or-die" expression so
familiar to Elwood fans. Elwood received the first kick-oif and punted on the first
down. Tech's safety man fumbled and we recovered on the eight-yard line. After
pushing it over in two downs, the drop-kick failed for the extra point. Immediately on
the kick-oH Tech was backed to the wall and their punt was blocked, rolling over the
goal line and out of bounds, scoring a safety. With the score 8-0 against them the Tech
gridders plowed and slid through the light Panther line making the score 8-6 before
the half ended. The second half was a punting dual, and Tech started passing too late
to do any good.
Oct. 2 ELW'OOD, 7 MARION, 14
After the Technical game, a large delegation of fans accompanied the team to
Marion, feeling confident of victory. Marion did not beat us by luck. We can truly
say that they had a good team. At the end of the second half, Marion led 7-0 as the
result of straight football, and immediately scored another touchdown at the opening
of the second half. The Panthers then started their aerial attack and made Marion
tremble for fear a long pass would be completed any minute. just such an occurance
put the ball on the five-yard line. The Panthers plunged to score six points, and passed
to score the seventh. The game ended, and more than one Panther resolved to "trim
those Giants next year."
Oct. 9 ELWOOD, 0 KOKOMO, 7
From every standpoint, the Elwood-Kokomo game promised for weeks beforehand to
be most exciting. In '28, Elwood won 6-0, in '29, vice-versa, and in '30 a tie, 6-6.
The Panthers' pick-up was slow, and they couldn't seem to hold the Wildcats. Marion

"Goodie" was one of our
steady line plungers. Also we
became accustomed to seeing
him rip 0E a ten or twenty-
yard gain. He will be back
again, better than ever.
"Chuck" was one of best de-
fense men, and was no piker on

necessary. He leaves us this
year. Would that we had more
EDWARD MALEY "Ed"
Alvey is one of our main-
stays, and we expect much from
him during the two more years
he will be with JIS. An athlete
and a gentleman--a credit to
Here's a man who will iight for El Hi with
all he has. A very good example of that slogan:
"Little but Mighty." The opponents won't make
gains through the center of our line so long as
Ed is there. One more year to go--keep it up!
RALPH WARNER DONALD KINCAID
Ralph always looked on the
bright side and kept on fighting
no matter what the odds. He
seldom let an opponent circle
his end, but drove them back
into the middle of the line.
If they ,did get to him, he nail-
ed them to their tracks. Watch
him the next two years.
Bob didn't get into many games, but those few
were samples of his good work. This is
year, and we all hate to see him go.
"Shookie" was another of our
light guards. Nevertheless .hed
had grit enough to lill a lot of
big fellows. Ve'll miss his
cheery smile on the field next
"Red" was light for guard,
but we always pitied the line-
man opposite him. He had
tough luck when he broke his
shoulder in the Marion game,
but he will be back for two
"Pot" didn't get to play very
much, but he was always to be
depended upon when we needed
a good substitute. Grit and
stamina will speak well for him
the next two years.
Another of our dependable
subs. At halfback he could
boot as well as carry., We lose
him this year. Best of luck,

Howard is a freshman, and
shows plenty of promise to en-
courage him for the next three
years. He played little this year,
but he's the never-say-die kind
that we need.
3 s g- 4-:S,f
"Hon" was one ofxthe boys
who kept up the spirit in the
team. He was always in the
thick of the fray, fighting for
all that he was worth. A senior
that we hate to lose--we know
he'll make a place for himself.
Q Tackle J
Give "Pete" a little interfer-
ence and a broken Held, and he
is nothing less than a whirl-
wind. He never has been known
to miss a pass or punt. We wish
you could stay with us, Pete.
I With plenty of! speed, and unlimited fight and
grit, he showed us how a warrior behaves when
he broke his linger in the Marion game, and play-
ed the rest of the season in spite of injury.
A Man on a Man's team. He has two more years--
Small, but with plenty of
grit, as was proven when he
came back after having his
shoulder broken the year before.
He will be, with us again, and
you will hear more of him.
"Bill" could not only call
signals but could carry the ball
as well. We expect big things
from Bill next year. One more
year to go-we know it will be
Although "Bill" didn't get into so many games,
he could always be depended upon to do his part.
Big and powerful, we hate to lose him. He grad-
uates with two stripes on his sweater.

As captain, "Grandma" man-
aged the team well. He could
pass, plunge, or skirt the end
with remarkable effectiveness.
A steady player for four years,
we owe joe a lot of praise.
Fast, shifty, and stubborn
about getting out of anyone's
way, Jim opened the holes for .
many a gain.
Opponents lose downs every
time they hit Jim's line. Two
more big years.
This boy's motto must be,

never circle HoeKer's end. He

0 start the season this year we had a varsity squad the most of whom had had little
Tor no actual football experience. The outloolg was not encouraging. In Apart it was
very disheartening. However, later in. the season the inexperienced got some experience
and the experienced got more experience, which helped matters greatly. N
At the end of the season the squad had developed fairly good teamwork and a good
background in fundamentals for next year. This is the last year our grand old man
of football, Joe Brogdon, will be with us, and itiis with regret that .we watch him take
his leave. ' i
Freshmen in Football W
It looks like a Freshman year! Not only did the freshmen win the class basketball
tournament, but they also had sixteen members out for football which heretofore was
an unheard of thing. In two or three years they should develop into a smooth working
touchdown machine that will re-establish Elwood on the map as a football town.
Jack Baxter and Walter Waters promise to cause Elwood's future opponents plenty of
concerning the backfield. Paul Courtney will certainly make a tough center,
while Howard Caldwell and Chester Wolf, tackle, look good at their respective positions.
All wecan offer then is luck and a hope that they all aren't stricken with the "big-hat-
band disease"-so bon voyage, Freshmen!

Arcadia here. Excitement the crowd wanted and excitement they got when
the Panthers swished an overtime game which ended in victory at 24 to 21.
Hopes ran high, but the Hot Dogs gave the Panthers the cold shoulder at a
fast rate. Frankfort, 343 Elwood, 11.
Broadripple here. The visitors were fast and the Panthers could hardly stay
ahead--but they did. Elwood, 17 g Broadripple, 16.
At Sharpsville. If you can't remember what happened at Sharpsville, ask
someone about it. Sharpsville, 295 Elwood, 28.
Markleville here. Maybe the Arabians had been riding their camels too hard.
At any rate the Panthers clawed them up to the tune of 26-23.
The Fairmount Quakers practised on their brotherly love methods by beat-
ing the Panthers 25-16.
Tipton here. Those Blue Devils must have a jinx on the Panthers. This isnft
the first time they have beaten El Hi at home.
At Windfall. Dragons are dangerous, but Panthers proved to be a little bit
more so. Elwood, 275 Windfall, 24.
At Marion. Somebody said "Giants"--and they were right. The Panthers
were forced to bow to a 27-21 score.
Lapel here. All we can isay is that Lapel really had a good team this year.
Lapel, 163 Elwood, 13.
Windfall here. The Dragons came back for revenge, I but were defeated
worse than before. Windfall, 22g Elwood, 28.
At Wabash. The Panthers drew an off night for the Wabash game. We hated
to lose when we knew we were better than they. Wabash, 25 g Elwood, 17.
At Frankton. The Frankton Eagles were flying high, but the Panthers pulled
them down. Elwood, 30g Frankton, 26.

it was back when there were he-men and she-women Qthat period of time when
the males wore the family pantsj, a man made for himself and posterity, a basketball.
However, be it so insignificant and unimportant, this so-called basketball was not called
a basketball. Nor did it look like one. It was just a ball, a ball of rags or fur or
string or some other by-product. But it served its purpose. It imparted an inoculation
of happiness and gaiety to all humans who gazed upon it or touched it, or flung it, or
kicked it, or caught it or thought about it. From that time on, it was the symbol of
recreation and sport.
One day the inventor of the ball thought up a game in which to use his ball. It was
as follows: A number of the village "hot-chas" were placed on each of two teams.
Each team by means of passing and running with the ball, attempted, whether in vain,
or not, we know not, too keep the ball away from the opposing team. But as most
students of psychology would say, "That would soon become monotonous, there being
no way to decide the winner." And it did.
S0 the man who had invented it again seated himself and stared into space in an
attempt to find a way to restore interest in it,--the basketball. For the purpose of
breaking the monotony, he drew forth his chewing-gum and hurled it lazily at the
waste basket. Missed! Nerts! Next a pencil. Missed it again! Nerts!! He took
his feet off the desk to get a better aim. This time an inkbottle. Hoorray! SUCCESS!
"Say," he said out loud. "Why not try this on my basketball?" He reflected a
moment, or moments probably. "It's a go," he said, as he patted himself on his al-
ready much calloused back. And it was. Thus we have the game basketball.
And even so with very little ado it has penetrated our own school. And everybody
plays it, including some of the teachers, who indulge on Monday nights. Even the
classes. And, clever idea, they've decided to have annually a tournament, and this year
was no exception.
The "Sophs" looked good, the juniors plenty hot, the seniors superb, but the fresh-
men won. They did it like this:

UR Alma Mater is exceedingly proud of the many fine athletes which have sprung
from the contests of prowess on the field and floor. To these outstanding men we
owe the honor of cherishing them in our memory for years to come. The most efficient
means of accomplishing this purpose is to devote a section of the "Crescent" to those
men who have made El Hi famous and feared throughout this region. Each year there
are two representatives of our teams who have been chosen for their ability and scholar-
ship, coupled with sportsmanship under every circumstance, to have their names en-
graved on the two large trophies: the Sellers Football Trophy, and the Citizens State
Bank Basketball Trophy. To these men we are proud to do honor, and we congratulate
them upon their success in the Held of high school athletics. These men are living ex-
amples of the type of youth we have in our school, and to them goes the honor of having
their names indeliably engraved on the two beautiful trophies which stand in our front
cases. Years from now, ambitious athletes will be found gazing at those names wist-
fully, just as these two boys did four years ago, and above their everyday lives will rise
a dream, an ambition to be like the boys of a few years ago. There are many trophies
in our cases, but the outstanding ones are the two honor trophies. Our children, when
they are students in Elwood High School, will come to us and say, 'Tm glad to be a
student in a school which produces men such as those Whose names are on the big cups."
We will remember, with a thrill, and a little fragment of joy clutching at our hearts,
that two of those men were our class-mates, deserving examples to the youth of to-
morrow of the value of clean living, sportsmanship, study, and SCHOOL SPIRIT.
To these men, Robert johns and John Lewis, we the "Crescent" staff do heartily
extend our best wishes for success and happiness throughout their lives--may they win
their battles in life as convincingly and as justly as they have won for their school.
Above all, may we have more such as they.

used bunched interference plays during the first half with disastrous effect. As a result
the Wildcats scored seven points in the second quarter. The Panthers fought harder
than ever the second half, but could not score. They have promised to do better next
year, and we hope they succeed.
Oct. 21 ELWOOD, 6 Wabash, 6
It seems, from the results of the last two years playing, that Elwood and Wabash
are in a real deadlock. This game brought forth the third successive tie between these
two rivals. The Panthers didn't seem to claw just right in the opening quarter, when
Wabash intercepted a lateral pass and scampered across the goal line just twenty yards
away. This served to infuriate the Panthers, and they fought and plunged and passed
their way over the east chalk line. The ball went back and forth in the center of the

Held during the fourth quarter. The game ended with Wabash's attempt to complete
a pass from the thirty-five yard line, but it was intercepted and downed just before
the gun cracked.
Oct. 30 . ELWOOD, 6 ANDERSON, 18
Sad, sad, that bitter wail! For the Hrst time since Elwood and Anderson have been
opponents, the Indians defeated us. They kicked oif to a group of confident Panthers,
who, after blocking an Indian punt, scored before the end of the first quarter. Every-
thing looked easy, but we had not seen the offense of the redskins yet. They opened
with a series of passes and criss-crosses that fooled fans and players alike. At the half
the score stood 12-6 in Anderson's favor. The second half was played close but the
Indians scored again when one of them blocked a Panther pass, and another caught it,
stepping across the goal line, just ten yards away.
Nov. 6 ELWOOD, 0 MUNCIE, 13
Most people say that this was the best game in several seasons. Rating Muncie as
the best team the Panthers would have to meet all season, most fans expected us to
take a sound drubbing. But no such thing happened. Although the score showed a
decided win, the Panthers gained about the same amount of ground as did the Bearcats,
but failed to score after marching up to the ten or fifteen yard line repeatedly. At the
half the score stood 6-0. The Bearcats added their second score in the opening of the
fourth quarter. Elwood tried several passes and completed half of them. Muncie tried
only one pass, and failed to complete it. '
Nov. 14 ELWOOD, 13 BLOOMINGTON, 6
The score does not at all indicate the true strength of the two teams. Our Panthers
completely outclassed the Bloomington Panthers. On a very slippery field Elwood
began a passing and end-run attack to score their first touchdown in the second quarter.
Bloomington's line held the Panther's offense stubbornly during the third quarter, but
was trampled under in the fourth. A place kick was successful for the extra point.
Late in the last quarter, Bloomington completed a few passes to score their only touch-
down of the game. Q

It's football season!
Thirty or forty boys, clad in golden khaki pants, bright red jerseys, and jet black
helmets stand in a circle around the coach-Their faces eager, their attitude that of
alert attention-they listen attentively to what the coach is saying.
"Scrimmage today .... lots of drive and power - - - backs forward and driving,
fighting for every inch - - linemen low - - - get contact - - - charge them back ten
yards. Stay with them! All right--two teams 'line up and run signals--remember, I
want to see some fight and stamina--that's all."
They crouch in formation, bodies tense and eyes
The teams spring into positions.
ahead. The quarterbacks bark out the signals with a snap and sting that cracks and
ripples across the Held, floating on the clear air.
They drive to the other end of the field and back with flawless rhythm and boundless
power. Now they breathe deeply and the sweat runs in rivulets.
The coach: "First string--take the ball on the fifteen yard line--you're deep in
your own territory--get it out to midfield--use safe power plays--no double or triple
passing--punt on third down if necessary--try to advance that ball out of coffin cor-
ner. All right, snap it up! That's all."
The defense lines up. Determination. Grit. Fight. "They shall not pass!"
' Crisp October . . blue skies . . fresh mornings . . exhilerating air . . pep . . snap . .
vigor . . sunshine. It's football season!
Gray skies . . dreariness . . cold benumbing winds . . dreariness . . despair.
The last practice.
The squad has dwindled to a mere twenty what with grades and injuries. They
stand around the coach listlessly paying attention to what he says only for courtesy,s sake.
"We've got to win this last game . . . there's no sense in letting this team beat you
. . . you're on' even terms with them in weight . . . you've beaten teams that beat them
. . . you look better in offense . . . you're a much better team than they from all indica-
tions--but youive got to play football to beat any team--you'll have 'to fight and con-
quer them in the first quarter--all right. This is the last practice, for tomorrow will
be the last you seniors will ever play for the school. Make the most of it--run a few
signals and then we'll have dummy scrimmage.
The teams line up. They walk to their positions leisurely. No enthusiasm, no ex-
Never to play for the school after tomorrow.
"Regular 6--4. Jim back," this from the quarter. "Shift, 1--2--3---4." the ball is
snapped, Jim grabs it sullenly. He charges low one or two steps then raises up and trots
the rest of the way. No speed--no energy.
What a drear and dismal day for climax to the last season. It begins to rain slightly.
The evening drags on into darkness. The rain makes things shiny and unreal. There is
an air of despair and gloom surrounding the squad.
Never to play for the school after tomorrow.
Drab November! Gray skies .... The last practice.

Above all else in the world, never train. It's bad for the digestion, and often causes
one to miss important events that happen while one might be training .
Be sure to drink copiously of water all during the game to say nothing of between
halves and before the game. This makes one feel satisfied at being able to drink
at any time or anywhere in spite of prohibition.
When the coach is demonstrating a play or showing you some of the mechanics of
the game, never pay any attention to him for it will tend to cramp your individ-
uality and lessen your glory. I
When you take sox home to wash them be sure and forget to bring them back.
This will necessitate your borrowing a pair from the coach fwhich you must also
forget to bring back.j In time you will have quite a collection of sox. Some of
the greatest sox collectors in the country are inhabitants of Elwood High School.
To observe proper locker room etiquette, be sure to leave the showers running if
you're the last one out of the shower roomg be sure to be the last one dressed, find
some minor injury each day, to worry the coach with, and, above all, lose some
of your equipment at least every other day. -
Beforea game never eat the prescribed poached eggs and toast. A menu admirably
suited to the case is:
Veal steak, Stewed mutton, Fried chicken
Noodles and Dumplings
Potato salad frich and gooeyj
Watermelon Pumpkin pie
Fruit salad with whipped cream
Hot rolls and butter fplenty of butterj
Tea and coffee
fAnyth1ng else to drink you can getj
When speaking to the coach never address him as "Mister." Always say, "Hi, Mug,
how s tricks?
When the coach orders calisthenics always think evil and hatefulthoughts while
doing them This will tear down your mental attitude and tend to counter-balance
any benefit derived from the calisthenics
Profanity is the best means of expression and is one welcomed by all coaches. The
coach will think you re tough if you swear frequently and at opportune times.
And lastly and by no means leastly miss as many practice sessions as you possibly
can without getting kicked off the team This will most assuredly strengthen the
coach s opinion of your importance

"And so," concluded Bob Davis, president of the Boys' Pep Club, "each member is
to give five dollars at our next monthly meeting to help buy equipment for our club
house. We have agreed that this is not too much, for all of you boys are working, and
are able to pay this in a month's time. All in favor say 'Aye'."
A chorus of Hayes" came from the lips of six eager boys huddled around the old
stove, their eyes fixed upon their leader.
"Say, fellows, I am sorry, " began Tom Holt, "but I guess you'll have to count me
"Why? What's the matter, Tom?" questioned freckled-faced Tubby.
"Well," stammered Tom, "I haven't the money to spare."
"You haven't the money to spare?" Six pairs of eyes stared in bewildered surprise
at the speaker.
"You, the son of the richest man in town, and can't afford it! And you have your
own allowance at that! Boy, that's rich! Now let me tell one!" shouted Dick Harrison.
"I know, Dick, but you don't understand. I am in earnest." One look at Tom's
face assured the boys he was not joking.
"Yeah? I understand perfectly. You are just too stingy to give up a little money
to do your share. I didn't know you were turning out to be such a cheap-skate."
Amid the hisses and cutting remarks of the boys, Tom escaped from the old shack.
Slowly he trudged toward home, pain written on his honest face.
During the following weeks, Tom stayed away from the club. He missed the boys
and the intimate gatherings at both school and the club house. Even Bud, his closest
pal. failed to come past for him to go to school. Everyone seemed to be against him.
One evening after school, Tom ran eagerly out of the building to catch up with
Barbara Dean, a pretty girl of seventeen, and the ideal of Tom's youthful heart.
Hello, Barb," he said breathlessly, as he caught up with her.
Oh, hello," the girl responded cooly, quickening her pace.
"Why, Barb, what's the matter with you?" asked the boy in dismay.
I am wondering what is wrong with you?"
With me? Why nothing is wrong with me. I still like you!" Tom answered
"Well, I don't like you. I think you're mean and horrid and stingy. Dick, wait a
minute and I'll walk home with you," she added to the boy ahead of them.
"I'd like to punch him in the nose," declared Tom with boyish wrath, as he saw
Dick and Barbara walking up the street together. "And I wonder what she meant?
h, I know now, and Dick has told her!"
2 fl , l
Tom's mother and father were sitting in the library reading that evening when Tom
opened the door and walked in.
"Are you going anywhere tonight, dear?" asked his mother.
"No, I just came in to get a book I have been reading," Tom answered, picking up
the book and walking out.
"John," Mrs. Holt addressed her husband, "I don't know what is wrong with
Thomas. He does nothing but stay home of evenings, and he never goes to their club
house any more. I wonder what the trouble can be?
- "Probably just love sick," Mr. Holt responded, smiling. "You know I was just
Tom's age when I met you." '
"Oh, john, do be serious, Tom is nothing but a mere boy!" j
Time passed and still Tom stayed away from the club. Almost every evening after
dinner the boy disappeared into his room. Even Mr. Holt began to notice these queer
actions, and so one mild winter evening he decided to 'go down to the club house.
"Good evening, boys,', he said, as he walked in and sat down on a creaking, pro-
testing chair. .
"Good evening, Mr. Holt," Bob greeted him, showing no surprise at his presence.
"Is there anything we can do for you?" A
"Well, I just came down here to get a little information. I want you boys to tell
me Why Tom never comes down here any more." '
All the boys looked at each other with an uneasy glance. Should they tell the truth?
Mr. Holt noticed their hesitancy and said: "Out with it, boys. What is it?"
' "Well, sir, it's just like this," Bob began, clearing his throat. "We boys decided to
buy some new equipment for our club house and each agreed to pay five dollars. That
is, everyone agreed but Tom!" A
"Go on," Mr. Holt urged as he stopped.
"Tom said he couldn't afford to pay it," Bob concluded.
"Couldn't afford to pay it! My son told you that? What has come over that young
rufiian? It's the first time I knew we had any one Scotch in our family. Just wait till I
see him! Here's ten dollars to help you out," Mr. Holt finished, as he handed Bob two
five dollar bills.
"Thanks, sir. I am sorry we had to tell you-" began Bob.
'Never mind, never mind! And I'm glad you told me," Mr. Holt interrupted as he
went out the door, slamming it so hard that the window glasses were threatened.
"Maybe its a good thing Tom turned out to be a tight-wad after all," began Dick.
"Shut up," shouted Bob, giving him an angry glare. '

"Tom," said Mr. Holt the next morning, "I want to see you for a little while."
"Yes, sir," said Tom as he followed his father into the old-fashioned library.
"The boys tell me," Mr. Holt said, "that you refused to donate five dollars to the
club. Is that true?" I
"Yes, sir," said Tom, hanging his head.
"Just what are you doing with your money?" his father flung at him.
'Tm sorry, sir. But I'm afraid I can't tell you."

"You mean to say you won t tell me? asked Mr. Holt.
"You see, Dad, I can't tell you," and Tom looked his father in the eyes. "I promised
on my word and honor I would not tell." " '
"I can't tell you that, either."
"If you don't tell me, I'll find out somehow," Tom's father bellowed in rage, "and if

William, Tom's elder brother, came home from college for over the week-end. As the
two boys sat in William's room, Tom said, "Say, Bill, I'm afraid I can't get any more
money. Dad's .stopped my allowance."
"Stopped your allowance? What for?,' Bill asked in great alarm.
"Oh, just some trouble at the club house and Dad found out," and Tom dismissed
it with a shrug of his shoulders.
"Well, looks like you could have thought of someone besides yourself when you got
into trouble! You know I need your money, too," Bill said in heated anger. -
"I'm sorry, Bill. But I'll try and get the money some way," Tom tried to reassure
One Saturday morning Mr. Holt accosted Bill.
"Young man, what is the meaning of this? I thought I gave you enough money to
pay your debts." And he waved a handful of bills. '
Bill turned white and sank weakly into one of the nearest chairs. It was coming!
"And especially this one," Mr. Holt continued. "A bill' for the damages you did
when you wrecked Professor Barnette's car. And this notice and fine for reckless driv-
ing and operating a machine while intoxicated!"
"Well . . . uh, you see, we fellows had a little party and I guess I had a little too
much to drink and ..... " '
"Evidently you did," his father rudely interrupted. "So it's you, now, is it? First
Tom goes and gets kicked out of the club because of his selfishness and now you'll get
kicked out of college for some wild tricks of yours."
"You mean they kicked Tom out of his club? What for? He never mentioned

"Yes, they did just that. And I don't blame them the least bit. When he said he
couldn't donate five dollars to help out, I'd have kicked him out, too. And worse than
that, he even refused to tell me what he was doing with his money, so I just stopped
his allowance!" '
"He couldn't afford to pay five dollars, Dad," and Bill, in shame, hung his head.
"What's this you're telling me?" demanded Mr. Holt.
"Tom has been taking his weekly allowance to help pay my debts. I hoped we could H
get them all paid and you wouldn't know anything about them. But when you cut off
Tom's allowance, I didn't have any money to pay them and the creditors became im-
patient," confessed Bill.

"But why didn't Tom tell me?" '
"Because I made him promise on his word of honor that he would not tell a soul.
I was afraid you would take me out of college."
"So that's the reason he wouldn't tell," said Mr. Holt as if to himself.
just then the door opened and Tom thrust his head in.
"Pardon me," he said, "I didn't know anyone was in here."
"Wait a minute, Tom," said Mr. Holt, as the boy started to go out.
"My son," said the boy's father, "I am proud of you."
What now?" asked Tom, darting a quick glance at his brother.
"I just found out the truth of matters?
"You mean Bill told you?"
"Yes, William confessed everything. But why didn't you tell me?"
How could I betray Bill and still keep my honor when I had so faithfully promised
not to tell?" protested Tom.

and in our school does not especially apply to all. I realize however that nothing can
be of greater value to human nature than to be told how we might improve This is
especially true when we are told by one who does so in the right spirit.
Maybe I seem a little radical in some of my statements. I can not say that I am not.
I realize that many of our actions are not intentional but are an outgrowth of the
excitement which we experience when we desire to win. This can in some measure be
forgiven for can anything be more satisfying to any human being than the experience
of having overcome an obstacle' of having completed a given task to his own and other
people s satisfaction? Of course our opinions will differ.
I think that to the heart nothing can be more stimulating and exhilarating than
victory. What a dark and uninteresting world this would be if it were not for this

element of opposition. If there was no striving for victory and the higher ideals of life,
each person would continue to do his daily task without the enthusiasm and joy that a
person should get from his work-and the ultimate success and victory which he
But to the heart and conscience, is anything more desirable than victory? Is there
anything that can be more worthy of our exertion and unstinted effort? Of course you
see the point. Sportsmanship and fairness are the keys to our personal satisfaction. They
are necessary in all of our undertakings-in our school life and in our later life. It is
easily seen when sportsmanship is lacking in our competitive sports. It is also very
noticeable when it is present. If anyone who takes part in any of our activities with
other schools conducts himself in a sportsmanlike way, he has a self-satisfied feeling.
It is no disgrace for a debater to be defeated by one who is a better talker than himself g
nor is it a disgrace for a football team to be out-generaled and out-guessed. If all were
sportsrnanlike, they couldfeel and enjoy victory, either for themselves or for their op-
But consider another angle of the question. What if we have played fairly against
unfair opponents and lost? Technically we have lost, it is true, but theoretically we
have won. We are satisfied in our minds that we have played fairly, therefore, are we
not the victors? p
When a team knows that it has played an unsportsmanlike game against fair op-
ponents, what are the reactions of the players? Each can think of some incident in
which an opponent showed sportsmanship. For each of these he can think of three in
which he was unfair. Is he satisfied? Decidedly not! His mind and conscience trouble
him because he has won unfairly. P
In Elwood's competitive sports which do you think a player values more, victory or
sportsmanship? I believe that you will find that sportsmanship is always paramount.
Nothing can really defeat a team which puts all it has into the game in an honorable
way. What if their opponents do score a few more points and come out ahead in the
end? If the team did its best in a sportsmanlike way, one more victory has been added to
their schedule, one more game has passed into history with themselves as the moral
I have noticed several fine examples of sportsmanship which I think worthy of note.
One happened during a football game between Elwood and an Indianapolis high school
team three years ago. It was a very hard fought game and at the end our opponents
were ahead. As the teams were leaving the field, that team gathered in a circle and gave
us a yell-"Yea-Elwood! Yea-Elwood! Yea! Yea! Yea!" I don't believe any team
could have done a finer thing than that. Of course, it might have been different if
that team had lost the game, but this incident leads me to believe that the players would
have been just as fair, even if they had lost.
I have noticed that many schools always welcome a visiting team by playing that
team's high school song. This is a very good example of courtesy and sportsmanship.
I think that the student body of Elwood High should strive to become more sports-
manlike. We want our school to be at the head of all activities. Why not be a cham

pionship school in respect to sportsmanship and school spirit? It will be easy to- do.
Not many other schools are so very much superior to our own. You know that the
teams play their best to make the school superior in sports. Do you do your best to
make the student body outstanding? '
The student body can do much to make our school a state champion. If the pupils
hoot and cat-call at the oiiicials of a game when a penalty is called, or if the players and
fans of the visiting team are insulted, a wrong impression is created. If we have a truly
sporting student body, we can have some of the outstanding teams of the state, otherwise
the student body will hold the teams back. They will be responsible for the team's
A little support when your team is in a tight place, a little sportsmanship when the
other team gets a break, all help to win. If you are a true sport, the other team carries
away a good impression, the officials feel at home, and they enjoy coming to Elwood to
referee a game. All of this helps your own team. Be true sports and your players will
feel proud of you and will be glad to give their talents to you and your school. You in
turn must give the team plenty of backing. Therefore, you see that a team alone can
not attain a championship. The student body is a big factor when all is considered.
How can you show that you are backing the team? We have a pep session before
every game. There is your chance to show the team that it has your support. I think
that this is one of our glaring weaknesses. Our pep sessions should be more enthusiastic.
If true pep and spirit could be transmitted to all in our school, much would be gained.
Don't you think that we could have backed all of our teams more than we did?
The players represent you, they are our best, so help them along. Give your team a
little help, back the players, show that you appreciate them, gather a little pep and en-
thusiasm, and we will be on our way to a state championship!

AS I THINK OF YOU
Listen, my friend, if you have timeg
I know you're good and true,
It's information I'm looking for-
I'm talking straight to you.
I've always found you on the square
And seldom feeling blueg
So tell me, do you think the same
Of me as I do you? .
No doubt you've always been the same,
With life so full and free,
You are a wonder, I'm proud of you-
Think you the same of me?
Your friendliness has answered yes:
You're all right through and through,
I'll always try to make you think
Of me as I do you.
I lifted my eyes to the sky above
And marveled at His perfection
But I thought I knew one flaw He made
So I asked this simple question:
"If there is nothing new under the sun
And we can not make or destroy,
What use to the world is a gifted man
Cr the brawn or the brains of a boy?"
Then there came from somewhere out of beyond
A message of wisdom and worth:
"A new joy is found when we realize
That God is King of the earth.
"We shall have new hopes, new goals to reach
From now till the end of timeg
And love that hides in the heart of man
Finds new expression' in rhyme."
CAN"I' YOU UNDERSTAND?
Bread? No, thank you. Butter? Meat?
Oh, tomatoes! Well at least they aren't sweet
No bread since Sunday, no pastry for weeks,
But still they all tease me about my fat cheeks.
I've bent and I've rolled,
I've drunk my hot water,
I've gone without rolls,
Browned golden in butter.
I walk and I run, I swim and I jump,
But still people tell me I'm pleasingly plump.
I leave the table and go to my room
To suffer my hunger in silence and gloom.
The door-bell rings. It's a package forlme.
What can it be wrapped so carefully?
Woe unto me-'Tis some chocolates and tarts.
My favorite sweets. Resolution departs,
Will power melts, determination flees, Q
And I pay no attention to anyone's pleas.

When you sit through lonely moments,
And you're feeling mighty blue,
It's not the world that's painted,
It's the way it looks to you.
If you will change your viewpoint
You may see the sunshine, too,
For it's not the world that's paintedg
It's the way it looks to you.
' -CLIFFORD M. DRAKE
As I sit and listen to the radio,
My mind wanders
And I think
Of many things.
My history book gets blurred-
"Here is a melody-"
Oh, that radio!
But I know
I must get busy.
60+ x does not :60x
I worked that once -
Without help, too.
What about her, anyway?
Rocking to and fro,
How fast the evening goes.
' -CLEDA BETH
I had just got inside
And was making for the stair
When I heard a gruff voice
Call out, "Wait a minute there."
I knew it was my father,
And he knew that I was late,
And I trembled as I whispered,
"It's only half past eight." -
"Well, I'm sure that I know better,
And you needn't lie to me.
If you do I'll have to go and trim
A big limb off the tree.
Now, young man, where have you
Been until this hour of two? '
Have you been drinkin' and a'
Smokin' or maybe had a chew?
Well, go on upstairs, but
Remember what I've said,
And the next time this thing happens
I'll-well, go on, get to bed."

HE school board for 1932 is composed of Mr. R. T. Boston, Presidentg Mr. Charles
Barnes, Secretaryg Mrs. Georgia Wesseler, Treasurer. These three people have done
everything in their power to better the school in all ways and to give to us the greatest
educational advantages possible. They have given a great deal of time and thought to
the needs and problems of the school, and the smoothly working school system gives
evidence of their splendid efforts and cooperation.
They are the link between the school and the public. Although they are "laymen"
in one sense of the word, they have shown a keen appreciation of the school projects
and have backed them to the utmost.
We will always remember their kindness and wish them as much success in their
different walks of life as they have achieved as members of the board of education.

william P. Smith, Superintendent
UR superintendent, Mr. Smith, is noted for his pleasant smile, his ability to manage
the affairs of the school, and his quiet ways. Mr. Smith has served us well during
our high school career, and has guided and directed us faithfully through the many
difhculties which confronted us. His has not been an easy task, but he has shown him-
self capable of Hlling well this position.
That the students of Elwood High School look upon him with a great deal of affec-
tion and hold him in the highest regard is not surprising to those who know him.
It is not often that we have the pleasure of hearing our superintendent, but his
occasional appearances are greatly enjoyed by the entire student body.
Mr. Smith has been with us for thirteen years, four years of which he was our prin-
cipal. In 1923 he became Superintendent, and he has since filled that position with
great efficiency. l

Clgde C. 'fl-lillis, fPrincipal
HREE years have done much toward strengthening our admiration for our prin-
cipal, who came to us with an already well-established reputation in the adminis-
trative Held of education. There are principals who have dignity without personality,
and there are those who have personality without dignityg but in Mr. Hillis we find a
union of these qualities. His quiet, yet firm, leadership, his unfailing sense of humor,
and, above all, his confidence in the student body as a whole as well as individually have
helped us to raise our standards.
He is our leader, yet is one of us-and we feel free to seek his advice on any problem.
He is honored and respected by all of us, and we, with all the others to whom he is
known, wish him the luck and success which we realize is due one of his untiring effort
and great ability.

oP'riM1sM IS NOT 'DEAD
How much too often have we heard it said that
"Business has gone to the dogs", "Everything is rot-
ten", and "It is needless to advertise"! When you
are ill and want to feel worse, concentrate on your
painsg don't try a remedy. When business is bad, and
you want to make it worse, moan about ity don't
advertise. Nobody goes to an invalid for health hintsg
and nobody likes to buy from a merchant who adver-
tises his troubles instead of his goods.
If you patronize the businesses and trades advertis-
ed in this book, you will be patronizing optimism.
Because' there are people who have faith in themselves
and believe that the world will "wobble right", the
CRESCENT doubly appreciates their patronage. P

Loyalty That Pays
Community loyalty isn't an expense. In the long run
it's an economy.
Loyalty and local pride may prompt you to buy and
bank in Elwoodg but when you do so, you help to build
up the only town whose prosperity is of direct benefit to
you. Good business judgment says--"Keep your dollars

WHY NOT? FAMOUS LAST WORDS
QPublic Improvement No. 1234567891
Why not install individual loud speak-
ers in each room of the new addition for
the purpose of aiding weak-voiced stu-
dents to be heard above the roar of the
shop planer? Or, better still, organize a
hog-calling class for such students and
make it compulsory.

GENIUS IN OUR MIDST
Bob Johns is the smartest boy in school.
He knows the answer to the chicken-and-
egg problem. He argues:
"The chicken came first. I firmly be-
lieve this and am confirmed in my decis-
ion. If ya don,t believe me, come around
We "went around". We told him that
we doubted his theory. He continued:
"The chicken came first", he repeated.
"I see no other fashion or manner in
which it could have happened. Therefore
I see no reasons for promulgating my
esoteric cogitations or explaining the un-
affiliated gastronomic axioms of the lep-
