to the many people who have contributed toward making this book what it has finally become, we gratefully dedicate this annual.
administration faculty seniors juniors sophomores freshmen activities athletics gobs of fun
we, the members of the senior class of 1936, acknowledge our indebtedness to the many persons who have contributed toward making this, our senior year in the high school, both pleasant and profitable, it is our purpose to commemorate in this book some of these services, and, by doing so, show in part our appreciation for the benefits we have received.OUR SCHOOL BOARD
The success of our high school depends largely on the school board of which Mrs. Wesseler is the president, Mr. Boston, secretary, and Mr. Barnes, treasurer.
The members of the school board are constantly confronted with problems of finance and organization, and they are giving their best efforts satisfactorily to solve these problems. In all things they try to remember that they are representatives of the people and work for the good of all. Their work is difficult but very important, for the future success of the world largely depends upon the proper education of its citizens.
It is hard for us to show how much we really appreciate their efforts, but we want to extend to them our most sincere thanks for what they have done. Especially do we wish to thank them for their interest in getting for us the new gymnasium and community building which the high school has needed so badly during the past years. Although we regret that this addition to our school will not be completed in time for use before we graduate, we are happy to know that the other students of our school may enjoy its use during the many years to come.
Many of us do not know these people personally as well as we should like, but we feel in some manner their great influence in making our school the splendid school it has become. We realize our great indebtedness to them for many of the opportunities which we have enjoyed during our years in this school. Now that we are about to graduate, we hope that we can show them by our work in the future that we are deeply grateful for all they have done for us.

SUPERINTENDENT AND PRINCIPAL
It would be difficult, indeed, for us to express our full appreciation for the services rendered us by our Superintendent and our Principal. They are the organizers and directors of the work of our high school and all for which the high school stands before the people of the community. They are the leaders, advisers, inspirers, and friends of the teachers and pupils. Amid all of their various duties they have made the interests of the boys and girls in the school their chief care.
Under their inspiring guidance the Plwood High School has reached a higher standard than ever before. We all appreciate the good will they have shown in their contact with the student body. They have performed their duties in a most efficient manner, and we have profited by their actions. We are truly grateful to them.

By this time most of us have become fairly well acquainted with the faculty. We have found them quiet, forceful, unassuming yet resolute, respected by all for their leadership and understanding, striving always to do the best, and setting before us only the loftiest of ideals.
We, the students, cannot begin to repay our teachers for all they have done for us, but we can show our appreciation by really trying to accomplish what they ask us to do. We can try to make the ideals which they have instilled in us come true. By following
their instructions we can make our lives successful.
We must realize that we are the coming generation, and in a few years the work of the world will be left to us, the students who are in high school at the present time. We know in the next few years the world will depend on us for its laws, for its inventions, and for its great men and women. We cannot accomplish much without the guidance of our teachers. We thank them for their sincere efforts which they have given us.
SixteenmTHE SENIOR CLASS
After four years of work in the High School, the enthusiasm of the members of the Senior Class remains undaunted. During this period of time they succeeded in accomplishing many tasks of which they are justly proud.
The sponsor of the mid-year class is Miss Foote. The officers of this class are as follows: President, Mary Alice McDaniel; Vice-President, Donald Chance; Secretary, Pauline Bohannon; Treasurer, Ruth White.
Miss Nuzum is the sponsor of the spring class. The officers are: President, Herbert Dickey; Vice-President, Henry Schrenker; Secretary, Olive Burdsall; Treasurer, Jack Burwell.
During the present school year the members of this class have taken a very prominent part in the many activities of the school. The class was represented on the Annual staff by Ruby Love, Cora Byus, Rita Dauenhauer, Hilda Havens, LuCynthia Kightlinger, Leo Kurtz, Howard Locke, Phil McKnight, Herbert Dickey, and Raymond Rigor.
The Seniors of this year's debating teams were Irene Hurd, Sue Wilson, Kathryn Knotts, Betty Klumpp, and Robert Bohlander.
The Seniors are especially proud of their members who are in the band, orchestra, and in the musical organization known as the Senior Syncopaters. The Senior members of the band include the following pupils: Herbert Dickey, Howard Locke, John Hershey, Phil McKnight, James Drake, Everett Singer, Robert Bohlander, and Charles VanBriggle. The members of the class in the High School orchestra are: Herbert Dickey, John Hershey, James Drake, Christina Goins, Frank Moore, and Robert Bohlander. The members of the Senior Class forming the Senior Syncopaters are: Dorothy Stookey, Her-
bert Dickey, Everett Singer, James Drake, John Hershey, Phil McKnight, James Bell, Charles VanBriggle, Howard Locke, Christina Goins, and Robert Bohlander. This organization has achieved considerable fame.
The Seniors made up the majority of power of our athletic teams. In both football and basketball many of the Senior boys earned their share of praise. Walter Manis, John Hershey, Henry Schrenker, Richard Mullin, and Harry McPhearson were outstanding members of the football squad; while Leo Kurtz, David Hartz-ler, Howard Locke, Ollie Mutt, and Charles VanBriggle played prominent parts in basketball. John Brown, Merrill Bryan, Ernest Cling-enpeel, Harold Etchison, and Howard Harting were members of the Vocational Agriculture team.
The Vocational Agriculture Class and 4-H Club also achieved much fame during the year. Robert Meyer and Donovan Foust gave demonstrations in testing milk for butterfat and received the first award in the county contest, first in the state contest, and sixth award in the national contest at Waterloo, Iowa. Robert Meyer won the State 4-H Club achievement honor, and succeeded in many other enterprises.
During the year the Senior Class sponsored several programs and auditoriums. At Christmas they set the fine example of presenting the school a beautifully decorated Christmas tree to stimulate the feeling for the proper observation of holiday festivities. This year they sponsored the Christmas program.
The record of the activities of the Senior Class is one of which every member of the class has just reasons to be proud.

Twenty-eightTHE JUNIOR CLASS
In 1933 the Junior Class entered the Elwood High School. Learning the lessons of teamwork, cooperation, and service, the Juniors worked enthusiastically at all they attempted to do. Several members have held important executive positions during the past year. Many more, of course, were engaged in the less publicized side of extra curricular activities.
Miss McDermitt is the sponsor of the spring class. The officers are: President, Phil Copher; Vice-President, Andy Cook; Secretary, Wilma Scott; Treasurer, Lois Sizer. Andy Cook represents the class on the student council.
Miss Beaman sponsors the mid-year class. The officers are: President, Rosalind Klumpp; Vice-President, Mary Alice Tyner; Secretary, William Thumma; Treasurer, Parke Moore. Margaret Goetz represents this class on the Student Council.
Everyone, however, cannot be a class officer, and there are some organizations in which teamwork is essential. The orchestra, band, debate, football, and annual staff are all examples. Out of the fifty musicians in the band and the orchestra twelve are Juniors. These are Martha Laudeman, Phil Copher, Marjorie Smith, Andy Cook, Martha Ruth Bambrough, Ralph Cooper, Robert Johnson, Louise Tucker, Wilma Scott, Louise Reichart, Wayne Lceson, and Raymond Whitehead.
In sports, teamwork is essential. Representing the Junior Class in football were Bob Silvey, Phil Copher, Dick Gustin, Richard Alte, Aaron Hartzler, Lendall Mock, and George Ellis.
Then came the hilarious basketball season with all its thrills and spills. Fighting along gallantly with their fellow players were Aaron Hartzler and George Ellis. These two Junior stars are expected to add much to the future basketball scores of our Alma Mater.
Active participation in sports develops both physical and mental abilities, but debating tends to create more mental activity. Debating attracts many, but one must be very capable before one can become very important in this activity. Junior members of the debating squad are Marjorie Smith, Martha Laudeman, Lilly Fitzgerald, Janet Kimmerling, and Robert Yoder.
When the staff for the 1936 Crescent was chosen, Robert Johnson, Eliza Jane Little, William Thumma, Robert Yoder, and Rosalind Klumpp were selected from the Junior class.
William Thumma, a Junior, represented Elwood High School in the geometry contest last year.
The Junior Class is one of much potential ability, and will be a strong and splendid Senior Class that will carry on with much glory the fine spirit and traditions of E. H. S.

T hirl)-threeTHE SOPHOMORE CLASS
The Sophomores are an up-and-coming class. Their scholastic standing is high. They are already making a name for themselves in the outside activities. Their pep and enthusiasm are unbounding, and they willingly accept responsibility.
Harold Hodson is President of the mid-year class; Carolyn Fetz is Vice-President; Billy Rauch, Secretary; and Murtice Renner, Treasurer. The fall class elected Dannie Austin, President; Willard Moore, Vice-President; Helen Plichta, Secretary, and Richard Wann, Treasurer. Miss Allen is sponsor of this class, and Miss Snyder is sponsor of the other.
Sophomores in the band are Vernon Floyd, Meredith Yarling, Cedric Benedict, Billy Rauch, Richard Orbaugh, and Dorothy Longerbone. Catherine Jane Handier, Mary Lee Cavan, anti Vernon Floyd play in the orchestra.
Debaters include Barbara Nell Ashton, Mur-
tice Renner, Ruby Hurd, George DeHority, Dean Shankland, Dorothy Longerbone, and Carolyn Fetz. Most of these took part in the interschool debates during the season and made a fine showing.
Football fans have a promise of a great many thrills in the next two years from such boys as Richard Riser, Dannie Austin, Harold Hodson, William Lawton, and Charles Brockman.
George Balser, James Johns, George Blackburn, and Ralph Stevens were members of the E. H. S. second team, while Billy Rauch, Richard Riser, and Harold Hodson were on the main team. These boys will probably go to the finals in the state tourney next year. Howard Warner, trainer, is also a Sophomore.
In individual activity Mary Lee Cavan placed .first in the second division of the county Latin contest; Maxine Burdsall placed fourth.
This space is sincerely dedicated to the memory of one of our classmates
"Let ns not bewail the seeming loss
Of what we love, nor think what might have been; For what we see below is simply dross
To what in realms above still lies unseen.”

Thirty-sevenTHE FRESHMAN CLASS
After the members of the Freshman Class entered the doors of the Elwood High School, they soon learned that high school work afforded them a real opportunity to get a preparation for the demands of life. Besides their regular class work, many of these pupils found other school activities of interest. As debaters, athletes, musicians, and scholars, they rapidly pushed their way toward the top.
Two loyal Freshman supporters of the debating team were Betty Jane Hiatt and Martha Nell Wallace, Perley Deal, George Hartley, Samuel Laudeman, Jack Booher, George Knopp, Robert Dellinger, Vern Rose, William Thomas, Frank Alte, Annabelle Cochran, James White, and Jack Hook are members of either the band or the orchestra.
The Freshman Class had more students than any other class posted on the honor roll for the first semester of the present school year. These were Claribel Allen, Mayo Coiner, Bertha Nell Sigler, Madonna Pad-field, Judith Wright, and James White.
Basketball stars of this class were Earl Sloan, James Fouch, Howard Warner, Donald Etchison, Harold Dickey, William Caldwell, Stephen Lewellyn, Kenneth Denton, Billy Thomas, and J. Edwin Locke.
Doris Cloud won the free 1936 Crescent offered for writing the best answer to the question in the question and answer contest.
With these early starts in scholarship, leadership, debate, athletics, and music, the class of 19 0 will no doubt prove to be one of the best and most successful classes ever to enter • our high school.
Whenever there is work to do,
Go do it with a grin;
Stick with that job, until it’s through,
And you are bound to win.
Don’t wait till someone else will take The job that’s meant for you;
Be brave, and face the task, yourself Stick with it, till it’s through.
And then you’ll find that you are proud, To know you’ve done no less Than others who are now endowed With every true Success.

POPULARITY CONTEST QUESTION AND ANSWER CONTEST
Below are some of the answers given to the question, " What can I do that will be most helpful to my school?” The first answer won the prize of a free 1936 Crescent.
I can be most helpful to my school by cooperating with the student body in its every undertaking, by being loyal to its standards, and striving to make them higher.—Doris Cloud.
That which I, the student, can do which will be most helpful to my school is uphold its principles of honesty, sincerity, and cooperation.—James Edward Gray.
To be most helpful to our school we must show cooperation, self-control, self-reliance, tolerance, and perseverance. We must be honest, loyal, pure, ambitious, just, and courageous.—Margaret Bebee.
By giving full cooperation to the school in all its activities and having a good school spirit, I shall be doing that which will be most helpful to my school.-—Donn Yoder,
Forty-fiveRobert Bohlander, Betty Klumpp, Mr. Brown, Mr. Bindley, Martha Laudeman, Irene Hurd, Janet
Kimmerling, and Carolyn Fetz.
We are very proud of the fact that Elwood High School had the largest debate squad that it has had in its eight years of inter-school debating. The affirmative debaters were Robert Bohlander, Betty Klumpp, and Irene Hurd. The members of the negative were Martha Laudeman, Janet Kimmerling, Carolyn Fetz, and Marjorie Smith. The reserves were Barbara Nell Ashton, Lilly Fitzgerald, Betty Jane Hiatt, George DeHority, Dean Shankland, Martha Wallace, Ruby Hurd, Dorothy Longcrbone, Murticc Renner, Katherine Knotts, and Sue Wilson.
Our preliminary debates started with the debating tournament in Anderson. Elwood was represented by six teams composed of sixteen students. The affirmative teams won from Knightstown, Frankfort, Lafayette, Lebanon, and Rushville. They lost one debate to Rushville. The negative teams won from Rushville and lost to Lebanon twice, Technical, Rushville, and Wiley.
In the Butler Triangle, which consists of North Vernon, Wiley of Terre Haute, and Elwood, all debates were won by the affirmative teams, resulting in a tie. This was the first time in five years that Elwood has not won the Triangle.
In the district debates, Elwood affirmative and negative teams defeated Anderson and Eaton. Elwood won four debates and lost none; Eaton won one and lost three; Anderson won one and lost three.
From this point, the decision was based on the joint work of the affirmative and negative teams.
In the sectional debate, Elwood defeated Dunkirk. Professor Myron Phillips of Wabash acted as judge.
In the regional debate, Central of Fort Wayne defeated Elwood by a close margin. Professor Lull of Purdue University was judge for this debate, which closed the season for us.
Forty-sixSnow and sleet were responsible for cancellation of a number of practice debates. One non-decision debate was held with Tipton.
The early season record does not compare favorably with that of 1935. This is, in large part, due to the large squad. This prevented as much intensive drill and experience as is possible with fewer debaters, but the benefits are as great in that more students are gaining experience. With the start of the district debates, the negative team has rapidly improved until we have a well balanced team on either side of the question.
Elwood has won the sectional four years out of the seven that it has belonged to the debating league.
It is our sincere wish that students will remain interested in debating and that each squad will be bigger and better than the last.
DISCUSSION LEAGUE CONTEST
The Annual Discussion League Contest, made possible through the Extension Department of Indiana University, was held in Elwood, March 26, 1936. This was a county contest and two representatives from Anderson were our competitors. Janet Kimmerling and Betty Klumpp were Elwood’s representatives and won first and second places respectively. The subject for discussion was the same as the debate question— Socialized Medicine. Miss Coble of Tipton acted as judge.
The District Contest was held April 8, 1936, at Muncie, Indiana. Mr. Lindley, one of our debating coaches, who was district chairman, presided. Three professors from Ball State Teachers College were the judges. Janet Kimmerling was our representative and placed third in the contest.

u IOUR NEW GYMNASIUM
Our new gymnasium, which is being erected on the lot adjacent to the Senior High School addition at North A and Sixteenth streets as a Public Works Administration project, will be 35 by 106 by 132 feet in size.
The structure will be erected of brick, steel, and concrete and in addition to numerous class rooms and other facilities, will have a basketball court, 50 by 75 feet in size. It will be equipped with stadium type seats or bleachers. The building will have seating accommodations for approximately 2,500 persons. A stage or platform, 221 2 by 33 4 feet in size, will be located at the south end of the basketball court.
Excavations under the seats and platform will provide ample space for the establishment of dressing rooms, showers, class rooms, and rooms for general storage and drying. There will be corridors circling the building below the bleachers.
The new structure will be heated by steam provided by the present heating system of the high school. Heating coils similar to those in use at the new store of the R. L. Leeson and Sons’ Company will be used. AH windows will have steel sashes.
The plans for the new school unit were prepared by the firm of McGuire and Shook, well-known Indianapolis architects, who prepared the perspective drawing of the building shown in the section of views, pages 58 and 59 in the 1936 Crescent. The building is being constructed by the Arthur J. Wolf Construction Company of Logansport at a total cost of over $80,000.

THE PANTHER TOURNEY TEAM
Panther rooters lent staunch support to their team during this year’s basketball tourney held at Anderson. The boys on the team showed their appreciation by putting every ounce of fight they had into the game. An important reason for the additional spirit was due to the fact that our team played those biting, scratching Alexandria Tigers. Elwood had won over Alexandria in a fast game played a short while before tire tourney but were not quite so fortunate on the big day, being downed 19 to 25.

Volley ball is second only to nine-court basketball as a preference of all games for the girls that take physical education in Elwood High School. Promotion of team play, cooperation, good sportsmanship, and enthusiasm enter into the game.
For this game, special teams are chosen, and a class tourney is played. Three out of five games determine the winner. There are usually two or three teams in each class. These teams compete in playing the five games, unless one team wins three games before thc five are played. Since there are two second period classes and two third period classes, matches are arranged between the winners of the same period classes. A final game is played between the winning teams of the two periods to determine the champion team.
A league team in each class is formed. It consists of the best players from the losing sides. The second period league teams compete, and the third period league teams compete. Then a final game is played to decide the winner.
The pictures of the champion team (page 68) and of the winning league team (page 69) in this annual give the results of the first semester volley ball tourney of 1935. We hope that the girls taking the physical education course next year will take up this game with as much competition and enthusiasm as was done by the girls during the present school year.

In the girls’ gym classes the thoughts of the girls are not on sports alone but center on that all important spirit of fair play. The girls are taught from the beginning that what they play is not nearly so important as how they play it.
When the girls enter the gym class, the first lesson assigned them is to become acquainted with each girl in the class, call her by her first name, take her into a game as a partner, and make her feel at home. It is here that barriers which have formerly existed between a girl and the hundreds of other students in the school are broken down and she becomes a part of the school, sharing with her fellow students both work and play. It forces, not against her will, any girl who has lived in her own narrow, selfish world, to become less of an individual and more of a group.
It is not hard to find that spirit of fair play that prevails in the gym classes, bringing that feeling of relaxation through sturdy, healthful, and cooperative play.

SeventyFRESHMAN DAN’S DIARY
Mundee: This morning in English class Miss Allen told us kids that nearly all grate people kept a diary. I wanten to be great asked Olive Burdsall what a diary was and she haven been with some other gurls out to Bob Bohlander's said a dairy was a lot of kows. Not seein what kows had to do with grateness, I asked John Haase what he thought a dairy was. John knows everything, and he said it was writen down the things that happened to a feller. Being only a freshman and wanten to be a seenyur as soon as Mr. Hillis will let me, I decided to write on seenyurs.
Twozdee: This morning 1 was hurryen up the stairs that says down coz it was getten late. When I got to the top, I looked to the one that says up and saw Cora Byus a tumblen again on the floor. Cora is a smart gurl. When she wants to take her exercise, she tumbles upstairs to keep from getten hurt.
Wenzdee: While I was in the library today, I saw Jack Jeffries, Ollie Mutt, and Ernest Clingenpecl all awigglen their ears. I looked around but did not see any one looken at them so I think they was just wigglen their ears to keep them from being roosten places for flies.
Thursdee: This morning as I was hurryen to school coz I was almost late I passed Marian Foster with her shoes untide. I felt better then feelen that I was not the only one not haven enough time to dress for school. This afternoon Mrs. Records sent me to Room 304 with a note for the teacher. Looken ahead of me I saw a pair of shoes with nothen in them. Then I saw that Marian Foster’s feet were not in her shoes. I asked David Hartzler what Marian dun this for and he said she was starten a new fad. David said that one-day the fire gong was sounded and Marian was fast asleep with her shoes off. It would be turrible if a real fire would break out and all the gurls were like Marian.
Frydee: This weak Herbert Dickey has been a tellen the seenyurs to get their pictures took, but he said I would have to wate me being only a freshman which made me feel purty bad. I heard Aileen Courtney a tellen Herbert that she could not get her picture took coz she had an offul bump on her mouth which she said was cozed by a milk bottle, somebody hitten her el-bo. Mr. Lindley said he bet the bump was cozed by Aileen getten home too late early in the morning. Poor Aileen.
Satitrdee: This afternoon as I was starten to leave the Pubiik Library, I saw about 20 gurls standen on the steps. Suddenly they began to scream and started runnen toward Main Street all excited like. Thinken there must be a fire, I looked after them and saw them climben into Phil McKnight's new limoseen which he had driven near the city building. Phil is now a very popular gi with the gurls. I wonder if he would sel the bus, me wanten it.
M tndee: 1 was in the study room this morning worken out a problem in addishun for Mr. Smith tryen to get the same answer twice, not doing so. Looken up I saw Teresa Gill with her pencil poken a fly which was lyen on her desk with its feet up in the air kicken, and James Bell and Martha Jane Kratz looken on. I think Jim is goin to be a doctor and Teresa and Martha Jane are tryen to be nurses, but they lost their first payshunt.
Twozdee: As I passed the assembly room I looked in and saw Mary Maxine Coston and LuCynthia Kightlinger each a sitten on a foot. 1 told Dick Wright about it, and he said that that was nothen. He said he’d bet he could sit on both his feet. This afternoon I was sent to the library by Mr. Waymire to get a book on Buggs. There I saw Dick with a sickly look of desparc all over his face perched on a chair sitten on both his feet not daren to move on account of Miss Beaman a watchen him. Dick said

afterwards that the last part of the period was not so bad coz his legs were numb but at first it was an offul pane. Wenzdee: This P. M. I heard offul sounds coming from the Publik Speaking Room. Thinken that something turrible had happened, I peeped in and saw Pat Stine jumpen up and down, waven his arms, and shouten at the top of his voice. Later on I asked Betty Klumpp what was the matter with Pat. Betty told me that Pat was only a telien the class that it was no use for them to ask him to be the President of the United States coz there was no room for advancement. Well, we all have our littel odyties.
