In Memory of Thomas Richard Gusfin
The glory of a nation is its youth that blossoms out in all its ability and individuality.
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.

The memorier of her .rtill linger on.
THE NEW GYMNASIUM
The new gymnasium is the biggest asset that the school city has recently acquired.
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
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.
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.

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
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
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-
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
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
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.

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.
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 STUDENT COUNCIL AND MONITOR SYSTEM
The student council of the Elwood High
School is composed of two representatives
from each class chosen for a period of one
year. 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
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
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. KREB5

The administrative officers of the
Elwood High School give us a genuine
opportunity to read about, to study,
and to understand life at its best. 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.
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

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
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-
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
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
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. Francis

Our faculty certainly has mental ability.
It would not be so successful if it did
not. 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

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
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-
The remedy, as I see it, is a better under-
standing of the units produced and a more
detailed understanding of the working parts.

We are pleased to add the pic-
tures of these two teachers to our
faculty division: Mr, Hosier, for
his past services in our schoolg

tion as supervisor of music.

As the seasons pass, so do the various
sport activities. 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
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
We sincerely hope that Mr. Shinn will enjoy many more
happy and successful years in the Elwood High School.

HIGH-LIGHTS IN BASKETBALL
THE BASKETBALL SEASON OPENS. ELWOOD 17-TIPTON 33. 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.
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.
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

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

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
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

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.
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.

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.
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.

HIGH-LIGHTS IN FOOTBALL
ELWOOD DROPS SHERIDAN. ELWOOD
25-SHERIDAN 0. 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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
Aaron Hart2ler,Ler1da1lM0ck Eldon johnson, Jack Pace, Ellis Johnson I
Robert Kennedy, and Glen Freeman.
The following athletic awards were given at
the end of the current season:
Gold footballs were given to the following
boys for the reasons given:
William Lawton for the best notebook in skull
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
Aaron Hartzler-two stripes in basketball and
footballg also, a captain's stripe in basketball and
Richard Altegtwo stripes in football.
Phil Copher-two stripes in football.
Wendel Wood was elected honorary football
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.
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.
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.

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
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 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.
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
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.

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.
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

The activities of a school make its life
well balanced. 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.

End of a glorious vacation. School begins.
Nothing exciting happens but the usual an-
tics of Freshmen.

The Senior play was given Friday
night, May 14. 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
By accident and by conspiracy, the
ordinance begins to grind and around
this plot, the fate of several are de-

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."

THE 4-H CLUB

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."
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-

advertisements and jokes
The people who have advertised in this
annual have contributed much toward the
financial success of our book. 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
The jokes have been collected for your
