The eyes of the world are turned toward youth expecting its ideals and hopes to be carried out by the on-coming generation. Should we not feel sorry to see the blossoms of a rare flower fall to the ground and wither while it is yet opening? Alas, for the premature death of one of great promise who might have enriched the pages of history. Well liked by all was Richard. He was always the possessor of a cheerful smile and was ever ready to render aid to those who desired it. Sportsmanship and sincerity were manifested in all that he attempted. His death was truly a great loss to his friends and family. There is a vacancy in the classroom no other can fill. Many fond memories of Richard still linger though he has passed on. . -Wilm4 St4r1' 4' s H ' ' - '- ,lj I "fit, Y ,Q 5 7 .fr .V Y 1 In Memory of Mary Boskey Like 4 flower th4l hlaonzr, then witherr 4u'4y, A trne friend h4J lived, dll!! left nr t0tl4y, In th4t rtill, quiet hour, when Deizthlr Cllfldltlf rele4re, Gently flaring over 4 Jonl rerting in peare.

The reason for this is that it can be used for so many functions. It was not built for basketball alone, although it has an excellent playing floor and the best equipment. It will prove to be a real community building for years to come. The possible uses of the new gymnasium are many. It may be used for musical entertainments given by famous musical companies which tour the country playing be- fore high school students and other people. It may be used for general musical festivals such as are being given in many schools each spring. In some cities all of the schools participate in these affairs, singing and playing the music they have learned in music classes, glee clubs, orchestras, bands, and other organizations. These affairs are, of course, usually public and are always well received. The gymnasium may be used for baccalaureate and commencement exercises. Until this year, there had never been a room in Elwood large enough to hold the people who wished to attend the exercises. The new school building makes a large attendance possible, Large banquets can be served by means of a dumb-waiter, installed in the gymnasium for that purpose, which connects the kitchen in the basement with the playing floor. The new floor is large enough to hold indoor track meets, which, no doubt, will be held before many years. Also, school parties and dances can be held in it. Altogether, the entire town is grateful for the op- portunities the building offers. The gymnasium was very well planned. A stage occupies one end of the playing floor. The floor itself has a very fine finish. The building is equipped with the newest scoreboard. In the basement are locker rooms, shop equipment, and a kitchen. The building adequately suits the purpose of the school. With these things added to ath- letics, interest in school activities will be increased. IMPORTANCE OF ATHLETICS Probably the foremost thing in the minds of the average high school student is athletics. At first thought Mr. Taxpayer might shake his head because his money was wasted on facilities for play. He would say it benefited too few. If he really thought this through, however, he would soon see benefits derived by the entire student body. Nothing goes further toward developing good sportsmanship throughout the school. Backing one's team builds good school spirit and a willingness to back other activities. It brings neighboring schools closer together. Although a spirit of rivalry results, it is friendly and serves as a stimulant in making each school strive to excel. It gives the student who takes no part in extra-curricular activities a feeling of use- fulness because he is necessary to boost his team. It brings closer relationship between the school and the people of the city. It offers another source of amusement and recrea- tion for everyone. Seven N THE WINGED VICTORY A reproduction of Nike, the famous Victory of Samothrace, is in the front corridor of our high school building. The goddess is represented standing on the prow of a vessel as if leading the fleet to success. Her attitude expresses the sense of exhilaration from the rush of the wind in the face of one borne along on a moving vessel. The proper inter- pretation of this work of ancient Grecian art makes its presence in our high school both appropriate and significant. It symbolizes victory-victory, we hope, for all of us not only in our school work but throughout life.

CIBSSCS The classes of our high school are the foundation upon which the school is built, and their success determines the success of the school. The school may be considered as a factory producing a chain which extends out into life. The graduating classes are the links. The value of the combined chain depends upon the quality of these links. Should one link be weak, the chain would also be weak to that extent. But, if all the links of this great chain are strong and dependable, the combined links will form a chain that will be valuable un- der any circumstance that may arise. Every student, therefore, should do his best to make his class develop into a strong linkg and each class should learn to cooperate to make a strong chain. -Pufriciu Couwell SENIOR WEEK I think Senior week is one week that will be remembered by all the Seniors during the coming years. I like to see the students wearing their caps and gowns. Since I have been a Freshman, I have dreamed of wearing a cap and gown, which to me are symbolic of knowledge. During Senior week there are many activities in which to participate. There are treasure hunts, wiener roasts, breakfasts, and many other activities. Reception night is a very exciting night, especially for the girls. How exciting it is to put on a new, long evening gown! I imagine the boys are excited, too, but will not admit it. There is a sermon given at a church for the graduating students. This sermon gives the graduate a very serious feeling. It is very impressive to see the students in their caps and gowns march down the aisle to their seats. The last week is also sad for some of the students. I have seen many with tears in their eyes as they left the school forever. They were thinking of the good times they had had. The school and its routine had become a part of them. Our school days are our happiest days. Most of us do not realize this, but it is true. -Senior Girl WHAT A DIPLOMA MEANS TO ME A high school diploma means a great deal to me. I intend to go away to a college or university, and a high school diploma is required. However, this diploma means more to me than merely an aid in entering a university. It represents the good times I have had during my high school career. It also represents the studying I have done, and it recalls the various school activities in which I have taken an active part. In time to come this diploma will bring back fond memories. If for some reason it is impossible for me to attend a college or university, I shall expect to find some kind of employment. The chances to find work are much better for a person who can show a high school diploma. Numerous concerns will not hire a young man or young woman who has not completed the required high school work. I am looking forward to receiving my diploma, and I shall treasure it as one of my greatest possessions. -Anollaer Senior Fourteen . a IZER unaa SENIOR HISTORY We entered high school back in '33. We were a brilliant class of budding geniuses. Even as Freshmen we proved our superintelligence by never going up the "down" stairway, running down halls, or being late to classes. However, there wasn't much for a Freshman to do in those days-no chorus or clubs and not much of a gymnasium. Our pleasantest memory is that of running all over town catching butter- flies for an insect collection. Yes, the first year was uneventful and we were not sorry to be- come Sophomores. As Sophomores, we became organized and prepared to run the school. Teachers and upperclassmen refused to recognize our leader- ship ability though, so we settled back and quietly started to build up a reputation on our own merits. Our junior year was marked by our real debut in school activities. As Juniors, we de- bated, we worked on the Annual staff, we took part in the Dramatic Club play, we acted as librarians, we served as monitors, and our boys played on the varsity in both football and bas- ketball. The school had at last realized our great and wide-spread talents. Then we became Seniors. Our supremacy was finally established. The school authorities must have recognized our athletic ability for they built a new gymnasium. Our dramatics were unexcelled. Our class parties were better and more frequent than those of any previous class. In fact, our class has become almost perfect. But all good things must come to an end, so we graduate. However, we are sure that whatever success our members make in this world, a great part is due to Elwood High School. "A great line, Senior, that's what they all say," murmurs each underclassman as he vows to make his class the best.

Billy Rauch and Harold Hodson are the rep- resentatives on the student council. For the beginning class the officers are: George Blackburn, president, Richard Wann, vice president, june Dailey, secretary-treasurer, and Miss Allen, sponsor. Irma Balser, Robert Harman, and Mary Alice Magers are on the student council. The debaters from the junior class are Mur- tice Renner, Dean Shankland, and Ruby Hurd.

Among the Panther basketball players are the following: George Blackburn, Ralph Ste- vens, Billy Holtsclaw, Richard Riser, Harold Hodson, Billy Rauch, and Teddy Robbins. SOPHOMORES The Sophomore class of this year is very fortunate in being represented in every type of activity, and in the next two years should be- come an outstanding Senior class. The officers of the advanced class consist of Mayo Coiner, president, Wayne Drake, vice president, Madonna Padfield, secretary-treas- urer, and Mrs. Records, sponsor. Judith Wright and john Strecker represent the class on the student council. For the beginning class the officers are: Doris Cloud, president, Donald Etchison, vice presi- dent, Bertha Nell Sigler, secretary-treasurer, and Miss Snider, sponsor. James White and Elizabeth Smith are on the student council. Martha Nell Wallace and Betty jane Hiatt are on the debating squad. Robert Brown, James Fouch, Donald Etchi- son, Billy Thomas, Rex Dunlap, and Harold Dickey are members of the Panther basketball team. We must not forget that Elwood was repre- sented in the Division II of the Latin contest held at Alexandria. Elizabeth Smith placed first, and James White placed fourth in this contest. Several boys and girls are in the glee clubs which were organized last semester. FRESHMEN It is only natural for everyone else in the high school to think of Freshmen as children. We will have to admit some of them are small. With the other three classes setting examples for them, we know they will be a great asset to our high school. Although the Freshman class is not organ- ized, it is represented in many of the activities of our high school. Leonora Nelder is on the debating team and should be a top-notch debater later. Kent Dawson, Robert Hinshaw, Adelma Bell, Joyce Wentz, Lucy Digel, Gloria Bell, Glenn Locke, and Lois McCarty are either in the band or orchestra or both. Thomas Hartzler and Adelma Bell will be on the basketball team next year and are very promising.

The chosen members meet and elect a president and secretary. The main duty of the student council is to choose monitors for a six weeks' period. This is done by the members suggesting per- sons whom they would like to represent their respective classes. These people are then voted upon. The list of monitors selected is then taken to Mr. Hillis for his approval. Each member of the council should check carefully on the conduct of the monitors. If they are not performing their duties prop- erly, the members of the council should re- port them to the president, who has the power to discharge them and appoint others in their places. Our student council and monitor system is the most important student organization in our high school. Due to the monitors, the school halls are kept orderly at most times. On the whole, the monitors prevent much disorder in the corridors. Students from other schools have remarked how orderly our halls are as compared to those of other schools. The student council and monitor system is a representative organization of the classes. The students of Elwood High School have a wonderful organization of which they should be proud. THE FOUR-DAY COMMUNITY INSTITUTE Mrs. Grace Sloan Overton, the principal assembly speaker of the year, was very enter- taining as well as helpful to the Elwood High School students. In her series of talks based on youth and community life she brought out the fact that there was not enough recrea- tion provided by the public for the young people of today. Most of the present-day crime, Mrs. Overton asserted, is being committed by youths from fourteen to twenty years of age, because of the improper use of their leisure time. Mrs. Overton also stressed the fact that individualism is the trait most desired in people at the present time. People today are not living as hermits to do as they please, but must meet and work with other people, there- fore they must be law-abiding, cheerful, and cooperative individuals. Mrs. Overton gave to the Elwood students many helpful hints for the success of their future. She will be long remembered by them. The institute was sponsored by the Elwood Depart- ment Club, Ministerial Association, Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, Elwood Parent-Teacher Association Council, and . . . 5 Pl different sororities and Sunday-School classes.

We are given the assistance of well-trained instructors. Our working conditions are as suitable as can be afforded. We are given the fullest support in our activi- ties, and are extended every educational advantage in their power to offer. They have prepared and advanced for us several courses of study with a wide range of subjects. Lastly, they will award diplomas of graduation to those of us who will meet their requirements of graduation. Thus we are given the opportunity to prepare ourselves for the higher institutions of learning, as well as for the actual work of life. -Freilerirk McCord OUR SCHOOL BOARD The Board of Education is a very im- portant factor in our school, yet very few of the students know much about it. This board is appointed by the city council on recommendation of the mayor to repre- sent the city government and citizens of El- wood. Its task is by no means an easy one, and many hours of difficult labor and worry are spent by these members trying to find the best and most efficient way to educate the Elwood youth. Let each of us, for the moment, put our- selves in their places. One of our duties will be to balance the budget. Many things are enumerated that we did not know existed. We soon find ourselves sitting up burning the midnight oil, wishing Uncle Sam had money of rubber so it would stretch. After many hours, we find that task fin- ished. Now we must select books for the coming year. We must see that all teachers' contracts are correct, and the day for school to start set. After school starts, we have to sign checks, pass on bills, set holidays, read state school news, and plan a balanced program. Now you see this board is very important, and the students of Elwood High School should recognize the great value of its board members and their work. Our present Board of Education consists of Mrs. Benj. F. Wesseler, presidentg Mr. R. T. Boston, secretary, and Mr. Perry H. jackson, treasurer. They meet with the Super- intendent of Schools in his office every month. Mixs. BEN 1. F. WESSELER MR. R. T. BOSTON MR. PERRY H. JACKSON Thirty-eight MR. C. C. HILLIS Principal MR. WM. F. SMITH Sulberinlendent BASKETBALL OF TODAY During recent years interest in basketball has grown rapidly, and now today we lind that in Indiana, basketball playing is taken so seriously that some sports writers have gone so far as to say that, "It's a religion in 'The Good Ole Hoosier Statej " and that we "start them tossing 'em up at the basket as soon as they step from the cradle." It is true to a certain extent that players should be started young. Give them a good founda- tion to stand on, and they will produce. Some critics like to condemn our system of building ball teams in Indiana, but right down in their hearts it is nothing but a condition of jealousy that exists with them. You will find college coaches from all sections of the United States at our State Tourney looking the boys over and hoping that they may be able to convince them that they should attend such and such a college or university. They are securing boys who are versed thoroughly in the game and they know it. With interest in the sport growing so rapidly, it has become necessary during re- cent years for the schools to build gym- nasiums which adequately seat the people and also which have regulation playing Hoors and are equipped with all the necessities for sponsoring the game. Today practically every school in Indiana does have a gymnasium, and most of these gymnasiums are modernly equipped and have enough seats to take care of their crowds. The boys of today have the privilege of playing in fine, modern-equipped gymnasi- ums with all equipment, transportation, meals, and other necessities furnished. The finest of material is none too good, and no expense is spared in giving them the best Tl1i1'ly-nine there is to be had. Practice equipment as well as game equipment is furnished to each of the players. The clothing is laundered regu- larly, and at no time is a boy allowed to wear clothing or equipment that is not sanitary. The game itself has been made over so many times that it is played on a strictly scientific basis. The game today is funda- mentally made up of speed, mental alert- ness, physical fitness, determination, courage, and a good understanding of the game com- bined with a good knowledge of funda- mentals, and then molded into a team that will function as a unit and work mechan- ically. The game itself has become standardized. The rules governing the conditions are the same in one section of the country as in another. The size of the playing floor for high schools is standardized, and the same holds true of colleges. Competent officials, paid by the school, handle the games with fairness to all. All participating schools in Indiana must be members of our Indiana High School Athletic Association, which has certain rules and regulations that each must follow. Forty Starting in March each year several tour- neys are conducted so as to determine the state champion, The tourneys are as follows: Sectional, Regional, Semi-final, and Final. The Final Tourney is held each year at the Butler University Field House in Indian- apolis. Up until a year ago there were six- teen teams that always went to the Field House to battle for supremacy, but with some contention being aroused that three games on a final day were too much for a high school boy to participate in, a move- ment was started to eliminate the sixteen team or two-day tourney to the present day system. Many are the opportunities offered the boys of today who participate in our greatest fall and winter activity. Hundreds and hun- dreds of boys have been able to help them- selves to an education in some leading col- lege or university through their ability as players. Personal contacts and acquaintances made by competing against other teams from various sections of the state have proved helpful in more than one instance. It helps the boy both physically and mentally. It develops him into a better thinker and also gives him a better understanding of human nature. --jzznir P.

We have plenty of students who can testify in favor of the faculty's capacity for action. The members of the faculty are all right. We like every one of them. They are good sports, and work hard for the best interests of the school. We sin- cerely appreciate their efforts toward our betterment, and we wish to ex- press our thanks for the help they have given us. -Mary Lee Cavan FACULTY Mary M.

Indnminl Am Ray Waymire Football Coach Biology i IJ X f A .1 ' ' X 'r'rv"'iY . . X, F orly-lhree A FAN'S PERSPECTUS At the end of each season a team has developed to a degree of perfection. Plays and individuals work as a unit so that one sees a fine example of hard and ambitious work gratined. Then the unit is broken apart by graduation, some parts are removedg others have to be changed over to lit in where those have been lost. We start all over again: checking each running of this new unit, making changes, building to it until again by the end of the season we have the parts assembled properly, the unit run- ning smoothly, again to be torn down and reassembled. Of course some units work bet- ter than others, depending on the way the parts are fitted together, the polish and smoothness, the strength and sturdiness. Then, too, something can happen to this unit even after it is running smoothly and near perfection. Parts can become defec- tiveg they can become affected from the out- side and change the entire outlook for the unit. Even when only two or three parts are new, it takes time to assemble and have a perfect running unit. Some of our interested fans are very un- just and quick to criticize. This is because they end the season with the teamg then Fony-four when the next season starts, they want to continue on from where the team finished the preceding season. They fail to start all over again. They forget and do not want to realize that some of the parts are lost and that the unit has to be another reas- sembly. Oh! they admit the team is new, but they cannot bring themselves to start again back at the beginning. There is not one of us that enjoys having his work torn down and having to begin over again. It would be more enjoyable to see this unit continue on and ong but the world isn't made that way, so we assemble and reassemble. Critical fans are very noticeable. When teams have good seasons, the fans have a hard time bringing their perspectus of the team back to normal. They are disgusted with everything. Nothing seems to satisfy them. It is even hard for them to see parts begin to form into shape. They often can- not see that some of the parts lack sturdi- ness. The remedy, as I see it, is a better under- standing of the units produced and a more detailed understanding of the working parts. -Vern Sbime Basil R.

Slowly one activity takes the place of another as the clock ticks off the seasons. New champions come into view but only for a few minutes in the march of time, because their footsteps are soon followed by other champions in an entirely new field of the sporting world. Time waits for no man. This old say- ing holds true to form ever in sport activities. Almost in a perfect circle one sport overlaps another from one spring to another. Baseball, tennis, swimming, football, basketball, track, and golf are the most outstanding in the sport cycle. Every school offers at least two if not all of these activities for students who are interested. -Dorothy Lickezrbaugh Janis P. Francis OUR BASKETBALL COACH This year has brought to us one of the ablest basketball coaches in Indiana. Mr. Francis came from Jelfersonville, Indiana, where he advanced to the State Finals with two of his ball teams. In 1934 his team advanced to the semi-finals of the State but was defeated by Technical of Indianapolis. Entering the final play-off again in 1935 undefeated in regular season games, his team was defeated by the Anderson Indians in the final game for the only loss of the season and the State title. Mr. Francis has done a great deal for our school towards athletics. He has helped to secure for our boys the best equipment possible. He has instilled in every boy's mind the necessity of displaying good, clean sportsmanship in our games. Although we have not had a very successful season in bas- ketball, we see great possibilities, and we hope next year to have one of the best ball teams in the State. OUR FOOTBALL COACH Mr. Shinn is our most able football coach. This year is the fourth year that Mr. Shinn has been an active member of our faculty. He is a former graduate of Ball State Teachers College, in which he played a very important part in athletics. Our football team seemed to be greatly handicapped in several ways this season: flj by lack of weight, QQ, by lack of age, and Q33 by lack of experience. Although we were so very unfortunate, we had a team full of pep and vim, a team that always gave their opponents a good, hard battle. Mr. Shinn is a teacher of mechanical drawing, health, and physical education, in our school. We are very proud to have Mr. Shinn on our teaching staff as well as on our athletic staff. We sincerely hope that Mr. Shinn will enjoy many more happy and successful years in the Elwood High School.

This was the opening night in the new gymnasium. We certainly are justified in being proud of this new addition. Nearly two thousand people attended the game. These boys of ours needed practical experience such as can be obtained through strong opposition. We were well pleased with the showing made by the Panthers. PANTHERS NOSED OUT BY THE TIGERS. ELWOOD 274PERU 32. The Panthers played a clever and determined ball game, but were finally nosed out by the Circus City quintet. The visitors took an early six to nothing lead, but were out in front only three points at the close of the first quarter. The Elwood boys tied the score at 14-all. Thus the first half ended. The locals then took the lead, but were trailing at the end of the third quarter by a score of twenty-three to nineteen. Although the Panthers lost the game, they showed marked improvement. DRAGONS CONQUER PANTHERS. ELWOOD 20fWINDFALL 23. The boys got off to a very slow start, but eventually began to find the hoop. By the end of the first half the Panthers had the score knotted at 13-all. The teams then battled on fairly even terms, but a final scoring spree by Windfall clinched the victory. Our seconds came through to win 36 to 17. ELWOOD LOSES TO CATHEDRAL OF INDIANAPOLIS. ELWOOD 14'-CATHEDRAL 40. This was the first out-of-town game of the season for the Panthers. Those Irishmen enjoyed one of their best evenings of the season. During the last quarter they connected eight of thirteen shots from the field and reaped a total of sixteen points. In direct contrast the Panthers were experiencing one of those off nights when they could not find the hoop. Forty-nine FRONT ROW: Paul Davis, Adelma Bell, Leroy Barmes, Donald Etchi- son, Rex Dunlap. BACK ROW: Billy Thomas, Ora Hittle, Harold Morehead, Thomas Hartzler, Howard Warner. AGAIN THE PANTHERS SUFFER. ELWOOD 23eWABAsH 39. The Elwood boys really made a brilliant showing in this game despite the wide margin in the score. During the first half the Wabash squad piled up a comfortable lead. As far as score is concerned, the teams battled on fairly even terms during the last half 5 however the Elwood team showed much more iight and determination. The Panthers proved to us in this game that they were perfectly capable of playing first-class ball. BURRIS HAS WINNING STREAK. ELWOOD 7-BURRIS fMUNCIEJ 16. This game surely merits the blue ribbon for being unique. All of Elwood's points were made from the foul line. Both teams frequently missed easy set-ups. The score at the end of the first half favored the Owls eight to six. By the end of the third quarter the Panthers had cut their lead to eight to seven. However the Owls Hashed forth with a bit of good fortune during the closing minutes and doubled their score. PANTHERS ROUTED AGAIN. Erwooo 14-PENDLETON 35. Oh, 21 points dif- ference, that hurt. To start the game the Pendleton boys collected several baskets and were soon far out in front. The Panthers hnally began hitting, and promised to take the lead, but the efforts were almost fruitless. The floor play of the Panthers was some- what under par but by no means bad. The fact remains that the Pendleton boys repeat- edly connected with the hoop, while the Panthers continued to miss. ANOTHER SCORING SPREE. Etwoon 31-BROAD RIPPLE 35. The Panthers went down, but they showed a marked improvement in basket shooting. Silvey and Hodson led the scoring with 12 and 10 points respectively. Elwood led at the end of the half but was trailing by four points at the end of the third period. The Panthers then tied the score at 28-all with three minutes to play. The Broad Ripple squad then turned loose a volley of shots and emerged victorious by a four point margin. Fifty ELWOOD'S INITIAL VICTIM. ELWOOD 35-LAPEL 26, Hats off to the Panthers. They certainly proved a long contended point in this game that the reason they have been losing is because of the inability to register under pressure. The locals collected six points before the Bulldogs from Lapel seemed to get the idea of the game. At the end of the quarter the Panthers led by only one point. In the third quarter the Lapel defense broke down somewhat before the Panther charges as Elwood climbed to a 29-22 advantage. The final quarter was fast and tense. AGAIN THE PANTHERS SUFFER. ELWOOD 20-ALEXANDRIA 35. The entire game was one smashing bang-up contest from beginning to end. The Tigers led I3 to 6 at the half, but the Panthers kept gaining speed and cutting down the Tiger margin. With three minutes to go the Elwood squad was still behind 20 to 23. The final result of the game was a thirteen point defeat. THE PANTHERS WIN ANOTHER. ELWOOD 25-NOBLESVILLE 24. We won again, but the score certainly was close. The Millers led 15 to 8 at the half. During the third period both teams lost their basket eye and failed to register from the field. The Panthers went into the final period with 12 points against the Millers 17. The local quintet soon tied the score at 17-all. A series of lead reversals then took place. With the game only seconds to go and the Panthers trailing 23 to 24, Rauch came through with a field goal and put the locals back on the sunny side of the score. THOSE PESKY BLUE DEVILS AGAIN. E1.wooD 16-TIPTON 17. The Panthers took an early lead, but the Blue Devils managed to tie the score at 8fall to end the first quarter. The Panthers trailed 10 to 14 at the half. During the last half some remarkable FIRST Row: Howard Warner, Howard Ballard, Wendel Wood. SECOND Row: William Lawton, Harold Dickey, Richard Riser, Lendall Mock, Aaron Hartzler. THIRD Row: Billy Rauch, Ora Hittle, Harold Hodson, Dannie Austin, Robert Silvey. BACK ROW: Richard Alte, George Ellis. THE HEI! CLUB Fifty-one offensive plays were executed but defenses of both were even better. Tipton scored but three points in the last sixteen minutes. Incidentally, the Panthers gathered only six. The final minute was unusually tense. Tipton held its breath as Silvey and Brown fired away at a seemingly fate-sealed hoop-thus we lost. ELWOOD WINS AGAIN. ELWOOD 31-SUMMITVILLE 17, The locals took command at the opening tip-off and were never threatened. During the first half the Elwood squad collected only ten pointsg however, the Goblins fared even worse with but one lone field goal. The Panthers continued their triumphant march with comparative ease and led 18 to 7 at the close of the third quarter. The Goblins in the closing minutes boosted their total to 17. The Panthers had climbed on to 31. Holtsclaw earned the scoring honors with five field goals. Good work, boys, ANOTHER LOSS. ELWOOD 22-LEBANON 42. What a fog! Bad as the weather was, it was still a much nicer subject to discuss than was this ball game. Those Lebanon lads scored from any point on the floor, at any time, and apparently at will. The bewildered Panthers were unable to seal up their ragged defense and displayed very little offense, Lebanon led 19 to 8 at the intermission and scored even better during the second half. WON ONLY BY A MARGIN. Etwoon 26-FRANKTON 25. We nearly trifled with those Eagles too long. The Panthers, however, managed to finish on top. During the first quarter Elwood sailed out into a 5 to 2 lead. The Eagles ran wild and collected sixteen points in the next period. The Panthers entered the second half at an 18 to 12 disadvantage. The Elwood squad then slowly overcame the Eagles. Rauch claimed the scoring crown with eight points. ON THE WINNING SIDE AGAIN. Etwoon 28-HUNTINGTON 26. These Panthers showed the stamina and power of a real ball squad on this occasion. The locals gained an 8 to 4Alead during the first quarter. Huntington tallied fourteen points during the second quarter. The third period closed at 25 to 22 against us. The Panthers tightened their defense and limited the Vikings to one point, while Stevens came through with two field goals to tie the ball game at 26-all. A tense and furious battle followed until the ball went into the hands of Silvey, whose last minute attempt found its way into the net and decided the contest. LOCALS DOWNED, Etwooo 25-HARTFORD CITY 56. The boys made a beautiful showing the first half. The game got under way and became a nip-and-tuck affair imme- diately. The Airdales led by two points at the first rest period. The Panthers had cut this CLASS TOURNAMENT TEAM: Vincent Roop, Howard Warner, Billy Frazier, Billy Rauch, Ralph Stevens, Harold Hodson, jack Pace, Richard Riser, and Richard Orbaugh.

BACK ROW: James Heflin, Harry Balser. lead to one point by the half. The local attack then collapsed as the Airdales ran wild. Holtsclaw was our scoring ace with Bob Brown his chief aid. TIGERS CAME TO WIN. ELwooD 14-ALEXANDRIA 33. There certainly was a packed house to witness this game. After making such a gallant stand against the Tigers earlier in the season, the Panthers were expected to go down Hghting, if they went down at all. The Panther squad apparently decided to rest up for the coming Fairmount fray. Incidentally the Elwood boys at this time stood eighth in the Central Indiana Conference. PANTHERS LACK DEFENSE. ELWOOD 10-FAIRMOUNT 26. No, the Panthers weren't on a sit-down strike. Perhaps they intended to pull their punches in the sec- tional. The entire game was a story of a defenseless Panther squad that could hit every- thing but the inside of a basketball hoop. The reserves received some good practical experience. DEFEAT AGAIN. ELWOOD 8+SOUTH BEND 31. The Elwood invaders held their own during the opening period and were tied 3-all when it closed. They then offered a very feeble assault. Silvey alone showed a little fight, but was replaced because of his inability to connect. Dickey saw action when he relieved Stevens. There is little need of comment for the score is self-explanatory. We're off for the sectional. WIN IN DELAYED RALLY. ELWOOD I9-SUMMITVILLE 15. The Panthers allowed the Goblins to gain a 11-6 lead during the first two periods of play but came back onto the floor in the second half to hold their opponents to four points. Two points in the concluding minutes of the game gave Elwood its slim but decisive 19-I5 win. Aaron Hartzler's pair of field goals and charity shot accounted for the most scoring of any one Elwood player. Harold Hodson was successful in garnering four points of two field Fifty-zbree Panthers, Bears battle in air for sphere. A rebound-ball always brings forth plenty of scrambling in the air by opposing courtmen. This picture, taken in the second quarter of the Elwood-Central fSouth Bendj game, is a good example. attempts. Jim Fouch, who was brought up from the reserve team ranks, raked in three points. PANTHERS PUSH ANDERSON TO LIMIT QSECTIONALJ. ELwooD 6-ANDERSON 14. In this game Anderson had their hands full chiseling out a 14 to 6 victory. Elwood threw an impregnable defense around Anderson's basket up until the last two minutes of play in the first half when Clemons and W. Davis crashed through for the only field goals scored. The Elwood defense could be rated next to sensational. In the first quarter Elwood followed the ball in an enthusiastic, slashing manner. Free throws by Goss and Clemons were all the Indians had to show for their troubles. Had we been able to connect with a fair percentage of the nine free throws allowed in the game, in all probability the psychological effect would have been very noticeable to both teams. The last three quar- ters were very slow, with the Panthers maintaining their sole purpose of keeping the Indians from scoring. Panthers, we commend you on your fine showing. CLASS TOURNAMENT. 4B's 26-4A's 14. The 4B class won the class tournament this year by defeating the 4A's by a score of 26 to 14. The first round of games resulted in victories for the following classes: 5 B's and 4B's, 4A's and 5A's. In the second round the 3B and 3A squads were eliminated. The final game between the 4B and 4A squads resulted in a victory for the 4B's. Fifty-four THE PANTHERS' DEN Elwood's new gymnasium, which was erected at an ap- proximate cost of one hundred thousand dollars, is a well- constructed building of ample size to take care of the ordinary needs of the sd1ool. Its com- pletion has provided grkoppor- tunity for the Elwood schools to be of much greater service to the pupils. 11005 ON GUARD BMCKBUR G UARD ILVEX F OR RA UU7 f'0l?iMAM9 FOUCN cffvrff?

Fifiy-nin e THE VALUE OF INTRA-MURAL LEAGUES One opportunity for building successful future athletic teams which should not be neglected is the intra-mural sports program which has for its purpose not only the build- ing of good basketball material but also to give every boy a chance to participate in the game if at all interested. Many boys never develop into varsity material while others do, and those who do not, get a great amount of mental and physical good out of it, which is a benefit to them. Each player who participates acquires a better understanding and knowledge of the game. Here the players are taught to co- operate with one another and to sacrifice. This training is important to them not only during their athletic career but will be of great importance to them in later life. Rules of clean living and sportsmanship are given them, and these eventually become part of the boys themselves. The Elwood schools have three leagues operating with approximately two hundred and twenty-five boys taking part. In the lower grades is a league called the Kitty League, which is composed of boys of the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. Boys of all the city grade schools take part in this league which meets every Saturday morn- ing. Teams from St. joseph also have boys in all three leagues. There are eight teams in this league with eight boys on each team. Next is the International League, which accommodates the boys of the seventh and eighth grades. There are twelve teams in this league with eight boys on each team. Sixty Our third league is the National League, composed of boys from the Freshman, Sophomore, and junior classes. There are eight teams in this league with eight boys on a team. Both the International and Na- tional Leagues play twice a week. All league teams are named, and regular round robin schedules are played off during the winter. The games are properly super- vised and are played according to the rules of the game. The percentages and standings of games won and lost appear daily in the newspaper as well as the schedules, so that the players themselves along with their friends and parents may follow the program. Our league play starts about the middle of November and ends about the same time in April. After the completion of the round robin schedules, the players engage in league tourneys. With the tourney decided, the three teams that win the regular league schedules are given a banquet. Little awards are given the members of the winning teams as tokens of appreciation for their cooperation and efforts rendered in making the league a suc- cess. A program of this kind takes much time, of course, but will pay dividends over a period of years. It educates the players to the right style of play, and furnishes a source of supply from which the school will eventually get its varsity material. One of the chief problems in the coaching profession is keeping well supplied with good material from which to build athletic teams. Intra-mural athletics solves the prob- lem and pays dividends in time to come. -Janis P. Francis FIRST ROW: Dannie Austin, Harold Hodson.

This year our first game was played at home. The Panthers were a little slow in getting started but began click- ing in the second period. The Sheridan ag- gregation was unable to stop our end runs, line smashes, and aerial thrusts. In the beginning of the second quarter, Wood shot a beautiful pass to Hodson for the first touchdown. The extra point failed. Ellis returned the kickoff nicely, and Austin plunged from the four-yard line for the sec- ond touchdown. The third touchdown was the result of two beautiful passes, Wood to Copher for a twenty-yard gain, and Ellis to Copher for fifteen yards. Copher eluded the Sheridan tacklers for the touchdown. The extra ,point failed again. During the final period the game was all ours. Through the efforts of Riser, Ellis, and Austin, Elwood placed the ball on Sheridan's one-yard line. Austin plunged for the touch- down, and Ellis scored the extra point. Coach Shinn then substituted freely for the rest of the game. ANDERSON TAKES THRILLING GAIVIE. ELvcfooD 7-ANDERSON 8. The second game for the Panthers showed promise of future victories. There was much difference in the Sixty-one two teams, ours being much lighter than that of Anderson. It seems as if chance de- cided this exciting game. During the first quarter the Anderson Indians scored two points on a safety, Early in the fourth quar- ter, Riser scored a touchdown and Wood scored the extra point to make the score 7-2 in favor of the Panthers. During the last few moments of the game Anderson forced the ball over our goal line to win the game 8-7. WABASH APACHES DOWN PAN- THERS. Euvoou 12-WABASH 35. Up till this game the Panthers showed very good defensive and offensive work. In this game, blocking was very poor, and the Panthers seemed to have very little driving ability. During the first quarter the Apaches scored twice and both extra points were good. The Panthers then made a sixty yard march for our first touchdown. The Panthers and Apaches both scored in the second quarter to end at half time, 21-12. Wabash started in the second half all afire again and scored two touchdowns, holding the Panthers scoreless. Wabash won 35-12. Sixly-two MARION GIANTS WIN OVER PAN- THERS. ELWOOD 6-IVIARION 26. McFar- land, big Marion Negro, seemed too speedy, flashy, and skillful for the Panthers. Austin scored our only point in the first quarter. McFarland scored twice for the Giants in the second quarter, and once in each the third and fourth. The final score was Marion 26 and Elwood 6. PANTHERS LACK SCORING PUNCH. ELWOOD 0-KoKoMo 12. The Elwood Panthers went down again in a hard fought battle on a slippery field by the Kokomo Wildcats. Due to the slippery field the game was strictly a defensive game. Copher and Woods were outstanding for the Panthers. The Wildcats scored in each of the first and third quarters of play. PANTHERS AND CATHEDRAL TIE. ELWOOD 7-CATHEDRAL 7. The Elwood- Cathedral game was played in the Butler Bowl. The Panthers always seem to have punch and drive when we play the "City Lads," and therefore we held them to a tie. Cathedral's only successful goalward drive was made in the second period of play. The try for point was successful. In the final period the Panthers scored their touchdown as the result of a fumble. Riser scored the extra point. ELWOOD DOWNED AGAIN. ELWOOD 0-ST. HEDWIGIE 20. The trip to South Bend was a long, hard trip for the boys. The game was played on a rolled, bare field. The night was very cold and foggyg there was no crowd, and the lights were very poor. A fumble by us due to poor lights and fog, paved the way for their first touchdown. Riser, Austin, and Pace were outstanding for us. South Bend used many spinners and hidden ball plays. With fine blocking, they won 20-0. MILLERS DEFEAT ELWOOD ELEVEN. ELWOOD 7 - NOBLESVILLE 24. The final home game for the Panthers resulted in de- feat for us. Riser scored for the Panthers the first touchdown of the game, which was very encouraging. Ellis gave us the extra point. The Panthers, however, were unable to stave off the Millers' attacks and were unable to score again. The Millers exhibited a strong offensive attack, scoring four touch- downs. The final score was 24-7. PANTHERS DROP FINAL CONTEST. ELwooD 6-MUNCIE 27. The final game of the season for both Elwood and Muncie ended with the Panthers on the short end again. Our boys displayed plenty of fight and courage but not enough to daunt the Bearcats, who scored a high spot in State High School circles when they defeated the previously undefeated Wabash eleven. The Bearcats scored in the first quarter, Austin scored for Elwood in the second quarter. The Bearcats pushed on to a final victory of 27-6. sw 'W Sixty-flares Aaron Hart2ler,Ler1da1lM0ck Eldon johnson, Jack Pace, Ellis Johnson I Robert Kennedy, and Glen Freeman. ATHLETIC AWARDS The following athletic awards were given at the end of the current season: Football: Gold footballs were given to the following boys for the reasons given: William Lawton for the best notebook in skull practice. Donald Etchison for the coach's choice for sportsmanship in practice and playing. Aaron Hartzler for the best tackling. Danny Austin for the best blocking. The following boys received stripes for foot- ball and basketball: Lendall Mock-two stripes in football. George Ellis-one basketball and two football stripes. Aaron Hartzler-two stripes in basketball and footballg also, a captain's stripe in basketball and football. Richard Altegtwo stripes in football. Phil Copher-two stripes in football. Wendel Wood was elected honorary football captain. Basketball : Robert Silvey-two stripes in basketball. The two largest and, perhaps, best known of the trophies in the possession of the Elwood High School are those given by G. I. Sellers and the Citizens State Bank for sportsmanship in football and basketball, respectively. Each year a boy is elected by his team mates to have his name en- graved on one of these trophies. This year Lendall Mock and Aaron Hartzler received these honors. Billy Holtsclaw was awarded the honor of hav- ing his name carved on the York Foul-shooting Trophy. When this annual went to press, it had not been decided whose name was to be engraved on the Miller Trophy. GOLF TEAM Perhaps too little has been ,said of the golf team. More than likely most of the student body and faculty are not even aware that there is a golf team representing our school. The team is coached by Mr. Hillis, and the members are Ellis Johnson, Robert Kennedy, Eldon johnson and jack Pace. Glen Freeman is alternate. All the members excepting Freeman are veterans. Sixly-four Last year the team defeated and was defeated by Marion. This year's schedule includes home and return matches with Anderson and Marion, and others if possible. The boys will also partici- pate in the high school tourney at Marion and the State opening at the Indianapolis speedway course. The home course of the team is the Elwood Country Club course. .wg . qv-58,9 . , ,., Q ,g 'u 0 . 'A FG' ' .- . Nr . "Q 1, 'R 1 if! t .W 4525?

PHYSICAL EDUCATION FOR GIRLS The physical education course for girls in our high school includes games, exer- cises, folk dancing, stunts, tumbling, contests, relays, first aid, and other related activities. Physical education is not a course of physical values only, but there are social and mental values as well, Our periods are not entirely spent in activity. The periods spent in discussion are devoted to such subjects as cleanliness, honesty, good sportsmanship, health articles and many topics of direct relationship to physical and health education. Some of the minor games played are dodge ball, captain ball, Mother Carey's chickens, black and white, and volley ring tennis. The major games enjoyed are nine- court basketball, basketball, volley ball, and softball or playground ball. Mat work includes stunts, tumbling, and pyramid building. Relays and contests create a great amount of fun and competition between groups or teams. The spirit of "fair play" and "may the best team win" appeals to each individual. Specific exercises are given with directions, and effects are discussed. First aid is a course in itself, hence we try to take into consideration the cause, prevention, symptoms, and treatment of sprains, strains, bruises, bleeding, and other cases with which we may come in contact in the gymnasium. We also discuss seasonal cases, such as freezing and sunstroke. Our course is a course of many activities and games, of definite value. We hope to help each girl attain a finer and happier life. FOLK DANCING Folk dancing plays a definite and important part in our program of education in physical education. Folk dancing consists of dances given us by different people. "The Virginia Reel" and "Pop Goes the Weasel" are English dances, the "Highland Fling" and the "Highland Schottichel' are typical of the Scotch dances. The art of dancing has definite mental, physical and social values to give. It is the most democratic of arts because it is the only art easily accessible to everyone. It is cherished because its recreational values lie in the joyous, wholesome, and natural means of expressing the rhythmic instinct. It is a means of developing poise and grace. Rhythms should help children appreciate and love good music. This expression carries with it all the beneficial physiological results of rational exercise, Through folk dancing children learn to appreciate the fine things different peoples have given us, for man has always danced. He jumped and leaped into the air, he skipped and hopped and gestured even before he had any written language. Every important phase of life was portrayed or celebrated in the dance. They danced to call the rain spirits to water their crops, to bring food in time of famine, and to give COll1'3g6 to warriors. Folk dancing is spiritual, and once one can capture this attitude, it proves of mental and spiritual refreshment. Each dance portrays the customs, char- acteristics, and the spirit of the people that gave it to us. Sixty-nine GIFTS TO OUR SCHOOL Gifts received by our high school this year prove that an excellent spirit of good will exists between the people of our com- munity and those of the high school. Among the gifts presented to the school are included an E blanket, megaphones, a trunk, zipper bags, trophies, and a flag. These gifts are greatly appreciated. The gifts and their donors are as follows: E blanket and three large megaphones by jack Mangas, proprietor of the Elwood Sweet Shoppe, Trunk and live large zipper bags for the athletic department by the Montgom- ery Ward Department Store, Fifteen medium-sized zipper bags by the R. L. Leeson and Sons, Company, Free-throw trophy by Milton York, Miller trophy by Dallas Miller, manager of the local A. and P. Store, Large flag, six by ten feet in size, for the new gymnasium, by the Women's Re- lief Corps, Number 117. The free-throw trophy is intended to serve as an incentive toward better basket shoot- ing from the foul line. The name of the player making the highest percentage of free throws, with a minimum of ten shots, is awarded the honor of having his name en- graved on the trophy. The Miller trophy was given to the school as an incentive toward developing those personal qualities desirable in good basket- ball players. The name of a player is to be engraved on the trophy each year. The bas- ketball coach and principal of the high school are to select the best qualified player, basing their decision on attitude, sportsmanship, scholarship, leadership, value to the team, and other desirable qualities of the players. Miller Trophy Free Tlarouf Trophy HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTED NEW WOOD LATHE In return for services extended them by manual training students of Elwood High School, the Montgomery Ward Department Store presented the Industrial Arts depart- ment of the school with a 30-inch, 8-inch swing, wood turning lathe. Some time ago the local store asked for cooperation of a number of the students in demonstration of wood-working machinery. Seventy The call was answered by Mr. Harry House, department instructor, who sent a group of students to the store. They demonstrated the various uses of the lathes and jig saws. Selected for the job were Vern Rose, Phil Copher, Harold Simmons, Robert Marley, Richard Reveal, Jack White, and Robert Yohe.

School life at times be- comes dull, drab, and uninteresting, but with participation in some form of ac- tivity, the interest is again revived. Activities is a broad term including all kinds of sports, entertainments, and fun. If the student is willing to put forth a little effort and cooperation, he can find some activity that will hold his interest. The student who can find nothing in an entire high school course to attract him in the Way of activities is the student who is bored with life and his fellow associates. Every student should participate in some activity that is altogether different from his regular routine and make his existence a more cheerful and useful one. -Mary E. Hurd DIARY SEPTEMBER End of a glorious vacation. School begins. Nothing exciting happens but the usual an- tics of Freshmen. It seems as if everything is off to a good start. We beat Sheridan 25-0 in the first gridiron game of the season. Anderson beat us 8-7. They won on a safety, but they won. When one good thing comes, another goes away. A new coach comes and then Mr, Hosier, mathematics teacher, leaves to join the ranks of the old home town, Anderson. It never rains but what it pours. We weren't satisfied so we went up to Wabash and played around with the team. But the twins played too rough. Elwood 12, Wabash 35. OCTOBER McFarland, the colored boy on Marion's team, scared our boys so badly that they made a touchdown right at first, but they forgot to make any more. More football, and more coming out on the short end of the score. Kokomo 12, Elwood 0. Silence reigns. CARDS. Bob Harmon, our efficient band master, did very well with the boys this afternoon.

Wabash 37-23. Not so bad the last half. Those Yarnell twins are a jinx to us. Vacation begins. Now for good times. JANUARY New Year. Pendleton 35, Elwood 14. Noth- ing more to be said. Christmas and all its good tidings are all over and once more we trudge up stairs and down stairs to all our classes, Debaters win 5 out of 8 practice debates in Anderson. Hip, Hurray. We won a game, we beat Lapel, 35-26. We decided to pay a little visit to Alex- andria. We were not wanting to cause trou- ble, but there was something fishy about the game. The referees were not particularly well liked. Beat Noblesville 26-25. Two baskets in the last 15 seconds! Nice work, Billy. Once more our old jinx, Tipton, defeated us, but not so badly. No, not so badly at all, in fact, by only one point, 17-16. Due to mid-term graduation 27 students are through with high school. Vacation begins. Alas, alack, another eighteen weeks of school ahead. Beginning of a big adventure for Freshmen, and beginning of the end for our Seniors. Cheers and halleluiah! We won. Summit- ville 17, Elwood 31. Fog, fog, fog-just ask Dick Keller.

Seventy-three DEBATING The 1937 debating team has upheld the tra- dition of our school and has enjoyed another suc- cessful year. Under the very excellent supervision of Mr. Brown and Mr. Lindley the teams won the sectional, the district, and the regional de- bates, defeating Anderson at Butler in Indian- apolis, Ridgeville in our own high school before a full house, and Greensburg at Butler. These three debates made the team eligible to enter the state debates. Due to graduation, three of the debaters will leave this year: janet Kimmerling, Martha Laude- man, and Marjorie Smith. This will leave as a foundation for next year's team Dorothy Longer- bone, Murtice Renner, Dean Shankland, Ruby Hurd, june Havens, Betty jane Hiatt, Leonora Nelder, and Martha Nell Wallace.

This is another Kava- naugh play, and requires an unusu- ally large cast to produce. It is a farce and is based on a freak ordi- nance passed by the City Fathers in an effort to break up the practice of young people spending late hours in the park. It was decided that any couples found in the park after ten o'clock would be required to marry at once. By accident and by conspiracy, the ordinance begins to grind and around this plot, the fate of several are de- termined. CAST Dinah, Negro servant,.Mary Louise Short Prunella, maiden aunt .,....

THE MILLION-DOLLAR BUTLER The Dramatic Club play, "The Million-Dollar Butler," another Katherine Kavanaugh production, was given to a large audience on March twelfth. It was typical of this author's stylefmistaken identities, sudden surprises, and snappy dialogue. Beaumont Spencer, who unexpectedly inherits a large fortune, is beset by blackmailers, and he, his friends and employees become engaged in a lively plot in a quarantined house. All's well that ends well, and even the butler marries his German "Gook." Memories and Hashes: "Just look at that hat-my feet hurt." "For Sophie's sake." "Bool boo! Hi Yi!" "Yes, sir. Thank you, sir." K'Why in Africa," "Darkest Africa-Hooey!" "Midnight, and I'm thinking of you." Where did Rosanne Evans say she kept her love letters?

THE 4-H CLUB "A person without an aim If like a cloth without handy, AJ ttseteyr, if it goes, AJ if it ,ftamdxfi The 4-H Club is a great national organi- zation with clear-cut purposes and ideals and a program in which all boys and girls may have a chance to share. Participation in one or more of the major phases of this program trains the boys and girls for farm life and for the duties of citizenship. The emblem of the 4-H Club is a four- leaf clover with an H on each petal. These four H's are to represent the head, heart, hands, and health. The club pledge is: "I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger serv- ice, and my health to better living, for my club, my community, and my country." Eighty-four Colors of the club are green and white, and their motto is, "To Make the Best Better." Each fall when the projects of the mem- bers are completed an exhibit is held. One purpose of this exhibit is to determine the winner in each class or department. In this way successful 4-H members are rewarded and encouraged for their efforts and the scope of their opportunities enlarged. The 4-H Club also teaches its members to work by themselves and to cooperate with others. It also teaches thrift and provides additional opportunities for the members to develop their talents and ability in leader- shi . E is with great pride, that we are able to say that we have such a fine club repre- sented in our own high school by our local 4-H boys.

Many of these advertisers have bought space in the Crescent annually for the past several years. By doing so they have proved them- selves to be alive to students' needs and enterprises. Our debt to them is one that can be best repaid by giving them our hearty patronage. The jokes have been collected for your enjoyment. If some are not quite to your liking, we ask that you will pardon us. All were collected in the spirit of fun and good will. We have placed them in our annual with the belief that good jokes are enjoyed by all. --Annual Staff Mr. Shinn fsafety classj: "Harold, what happens when a person strips the gears in an automobile?"
