To the boys and girls of our school who
strive to take advantage of the many edu-
cational opportunities offered them, we re-
spectfully dedicate this, the 1959 Crescent.
That the happiest period of our lives--the
high school age-may he recalled more
easily now and in later years, the staff of
this book has sought through the medium
of pictures and type to build for you an
everlasting memory book,

"The children of today are the voters of tomorrow, and to prepare them well for
their duties is the opportunity of the State. In no other country have the people worked out
so fully the purpose of making a system of public education good' enough for rich and
poor alike, and with equal opportunity for all, and in no other country have the results
shown forth to better advantage in the general intelligence, poise, good judgment, and
productive capacity of the people."-Ellwood P. Cubberley, Public School Adnzifziftra-
lion, page 12.

THE JUNIOR CLASS
Many of the Juniors, as well as the Seniors, are
participants in the school activities. Ted Linder,
Tom Hartzler, and Lewis Hickner did quite well
in football last fall. Junior basketball players who
will give the opposing teams considerable oppo-
sition next year are Tom Hartzler, Paul Davis, and
Some of the capable debaters in this class are
June Havens, Joyce Wentz, and Martha Nell Scott.
Edsel Yarling, Virginia Shaw, and Robert Hin-
shaw are members of the Junior class who are on
the Crescent Staff.
Among this group we find some talented mu-
sicians, also. Leonora Nelder, Alice Bambrough,
and Adelma Bell are in the Concert Choirg and
Kent Dawson, Robert Hinshaw, and James Burns
are in the band.
Several Juniors take part in dramatics. Some of
these are June Havens, Jeanette Harpold, Joyce
Wentz, Nellie Mike, and Martha Nell Scott.

THE SOPHOMORE CLASS
Our school is fortunate in having such an
energetic Sophomore class this year. Some of the
ictive football players are Edward Courtney, Ralph
Eollier, William Davies, and Robert Moore. Then,
if course, there is our basketball hero, Mulf Davis.
t is too bad for opposing teams that he does not
graduate this year.
This class of "41" has musical talent also. In
the concert choir we discover capable singers,
such as Lucille Johns, Ann Whitenack, Jahree
Snyder, and Gloria Bell. Lucy Digel is interested
The Sophomores who take part in dramatic
activities are Betty Davis, Martha Brunson, and

The Senior Play, "Little Geraldine," under the direction of
Mr. Lindley, was given on December 13. This play concerned
the initiation of a Freshman girl into the ways of a coedu-
cational college. She had lived in Europe mostly, and her
mother had taught her the things she herself had been taught
as a girl. Soon after her arrival, Geraldine overheard and
revealed to the football star of the college a plot perpetrated
by members of a rival school. This plot would have rendered
Bus, the star player, unable to participate in the main game
of the season. Little Geraldine's act prevented the catastrophe,
and the great football hero himself took her to the prom. So
our little Freshman "goat" turned out to be a swan.

The Panther gridders started the 1938 season
under a new regime. The resignation of Mr. Shinn
brought about the arrival of Mr. Guenther as
head football instructor. Mr. Guenther formerly
starred for Hanover College.
Hard luck pursued our Panthers. Ineligibility
and injuries took a heavy toll on the fortunes of
our boys. The Panthers lacked experience, which
meant more misfortune. True, the season was any-
thing but successful, but the real purpose of any
sport is to make better persons out of the boys.
The Panthers did achieve that.
We opened the season with Clark of Hammond.
The up-staters downed our Panthers 18 to 0.
Anderson took a heartbreaker from us, after the
boys had the LIPPCI' hand all the way. Marion and
Wabash provided the next two defeats. The
Kokomo game saw the first Panther scores. The
strong Kokomo eleven was forced to a 20 to 12
win by the Panthers. After losing to Cathedral of
Indianapolis and Peru, the boys won their first
victory in defeating Noblesville. The Panthers
rolled over the Millers to the tune of 19 to 7. In
the season's finale the boys dropped a game to the
powerful Muncie Bearcats.
' The line play of Co-Captain Ora Hittle, Bob
juday, Tom Hartzler, and Bob Moore was out-
standing throughout the season, as was the back-
field work of Co-Captain Mickey Carmody, who
won honorable mention honors in the Central In-
diana Conference. Those Seniors awarded sweaters
were Mickey Carmody, Ora Hittle, Bernard Mang-
helli, james Fouch, Robert juday, Robert Whit-
tinghill, George Ball, and Harry Updegraff. Tom
Hartzler, Robert Moore, Robert Wright, Ted Lin-
der, Bill Davies, Fred Nash, Lewis Hickner, Ed
Courtney, Ralph Collier, Ted Robbins, and Horace

THE 1938-'59 BASKETBALL SEASON
The 1938-'39 edition of the Elwood High School basketball team proved
to be one of the best teams we have ever had. We faced perhaps the most difii-
cult schedule ever drawn up for an Elwood team. Some of the outstanding
aggregations that we met were South Side, last year's champions, Frankfort,
the outstanding contender this season, Burris of Muncie, and Central of South
Bend. We did not win all of our games, but we made a showing worthy of
P We started off the season in high gear, winning the first six games by handy
margins. Our first loss occurred against Burris in the 4-Team Invitational
Tournament held on New Year's Eve. The feature of this early part of the
season was Mulford fMuffj Davis's 31 points against Tipton. That particular
feat drew praise and astonishment from all corners of the State.
The rest of the season was one tough team after another. Our record at the
end of the season stood at ten won and twelve lost. However, one glance at
the caliber of teams that we faced is sufficient to offset any discouraging
The biggest event of any Hoosier basketball team is the March tournament.
We were paired against Lapel, which had the pleasure of upsetting our boys
the year before. When the gun barked its ending, our boys had their revenge,
beating Lapel 34 to 26. Anderson was our next foe, and it proved to be a
fitting ending for our net season. The Indians were heavy favorites to win, and
after the first half, it appeared as if they would win, the score standing at
15 to 3. The last half was an entirely different story. During this half we
played Anderson off their feet, so to speak, and only by queer quirks of fate
did we go down in glorious defeat, 31 to 28. It was the nearest an Elwood

Harold Dickey, Senior, forward, height six feet two inches, weight 172
pounds. Harold was one of the sharpshooters on the squad. He had a very
peculiar shot, but he could hit the hoop. His follow-in shots helped greatly
to secure the fine record of the team.
Maurice Miller, junior, forward, height hve feet ten inches, weight 150
pounds. Maury was the first of three boys to come from the "B" team to a
place on the varsity. He is a good shot, and will be counted on to make
plenty of baskets next season.
Mulford Davis, Sophomore, center, height six feet one inch, weight 182
pounds. Muff was the outstanding player on the team. Besides being high
scorer of his own team, he won the Central Indiana Conference scorin
title. He has two years of eligibility yet, and should become a truly grea
player. He was acting captain this year.
Raymond Nuding, Sophomore, guard, height six feet, weight 148 pounds.
Ray was the third reserve to become a varsity man. He saw much action in
the last games of the year. Calm, cool, and collected describes him aptly.
Robert Brown, Senior, forward, height five feet eleven inches, weight 165'
pounds. Brownie was the mainstay of the Panthers for three years. Thi
year he was hampered by illness, but by sectional time he proved his tru
value. His excellent playing will be missed sorely.

aul made up in scrap what he lacked in height. He was the regular run-

oack next year to continue his net warfare.
Michael Carmody, Senior, guard, height five feet six inches, weight 136
ounds. Mickey fought his way from an obscure place on the bench to a
osition on the starting five. His claim to fame was his last-second winning
asket against Tipton. He was a very hard worker.
George justice, Senior, forward, height five feet nine inches, weight 142
pounds. George spent most of his time as a reserve. He was one of the first
to see action when help was needed, however. He was a member of the
isquad for two years.
lBruce Robbins, junior, center, height six feet two inches, weight 155
pounds. Bruce also worked his way up to the varsity. He is a tall lad and
has the correct build to become a fine player. He proved to be a high scorer

Coach Francis will lose four boys by graduation
this year. They are Bob Brown, Harold Dickey,
Michael Carmody, and George justice. All received
jackets. Those members of the tournament team
who received letters were Mulford Davis, Paul
Davis, Tom Hartzler, Bruce Robbins, Ray Nuding,
and Maurice Miller. These players should form
the nucleus of an even better team next year.
A word of praise should be given Bob Brown,
departing Senior. He was a regular for three years
and each year made the all-sectional team,
"Brownie" will be sorely missed when the team
takes the floor next year.

THE BOOSTER CLUB
The Booster Club is an organization of a hundred seventy leather-
lunged students under the sponsorship of Mr. Forney. Since its organization
at the beginning of the '38 and '39 basketball season, this club has formed
the nucleus for all cheering at pep sessions and at basketball games, Regular
yelling practices were held after school.
The club has activities other than that of cheering. lt sponsored a tour-
nament dance after the 4-Team Invitational Tournament, December 31. To
this dance were invited members of the three other schools entered in the
tournament: Burris, Alexandria, and Mishawaka. The latest undertaking of
the club was card stunting. The stunting was done by means of red, white,
and blue colored cardboards. The club members would hold the right
colored card above their heads and form different letters. The card stunting
added color to the games and provided entertainment for the fans during
The club did remarkably well in uniting its voices and spirit. It is some-
thing which the Elwood High School students have needed for some time.
The ofhcers for the past season were the following fsee picture below, left

The Shop Foundry l
The development of foundry work is the latest addition to the higl
school shop course. In our shop foundry, aluminum or brass is melted ar
poured into molds made of sand, which produces a metal casting. ,
Before any article can be cast from metal, a pattern, or duplicate, of tl
desired article must be made from wood or metal. This pattern is then moldc
in sand in such a manner that the pattern can be removed from the sar
leaving a hollow place in the sand of the same shape as the pattern. Moltc
metal is then poured into the mold through openings previously made in tl
sand. Wlien the metal has hardened, it is removed from the sand, whc
cold, the waste parts are removed. The casting is then cleaned and finishc
on a polishing head by using a scratch brush and a polishing wheel.

GEORGE DENNIS LURA BLACKBURN CLARIBEL ALLEN
SOME OUTSTANDING PUPILS
Elwood High School is very proud of its talented student, George Dennis. In the
spring of 1938 at the convention of the Indiana Federation of Music Clubs held at
Indianapolis, George won first place in the vocal bass division. He is a member of the
Concert Choir, and was one of the leading characters in an operetta recently given by
the music department.
Lura Blackburn won the Latin contest for the county this year. This contest covers
the Latin taught up to and including the "Commentaries" of Caesar. The contest was
held in Alexandria. We are wishing Lura luck in all the contests including the State Hnals.
Claribel Allen is shown here as a worker in the Call Leader' office. She is one of
our outstanding students and has always been a great help in the many undertakings she
has shared with her schoolmates.
The Student Council is composed of members of the Sophomore, junior, and Senior
classes. The members shown here are Mary Flowers, Edsel Yarling, Leonora Nelder,
Elizabeth Sage, Betty Davis, Mayo Coiner, Nellie Mike, Merl Smith, Joanne Vinson, and
Geneva Sides. Billy Harney and james White are members also.
In order to make the Honor Roll, it is necessary for a pupil to make at least four E's.
The first semester Honor Roll students were John Strecker, Velma Perkins. Wayne
Drake, Elizabeth Smith, james Hackett, Betty Davis, and Mayo Coiner.

Stephen is one of the most all-around boys in
our school. He is one of the cheer leaders, an
Eagle Scout, president of the Senior class, and a
good student. He is the chief photographer on the
Crescent staff. The picture shows him working in
the dark room at the studio.
Betty Jane Hiatt won the Madison County
American Legion Americanism oratorical contest
this spring. Her subject was, "Our Hope--the Con-
stitution." We all knew Betty was a good speaker
and were pleased to have her win.
George Knopp is one of our finest pianists.
Whenever we want some good swing music, we
call on George. He never disappoints us.
Did you know that we have the "Swingsters,"
an excellent group of entertainers, in our very
midst? This group provides music for sorority and
school dances, and for the Country Club. It also
fills numerous out-of-town engagements. The
members consist of the following: Robert Hinshaw,
saxophoneg George Sides, trumpet, Perley Deal,
drum, Geneva Sides, piano, and Alberta Brier,
vocalist. This group was organized about four
We of the Crescent staff are especially proud
of our sports editor, james White. james decided
long ago that he wanted to become a sports writer,
so he applied for a position on the staff of the
Call Leader. The first name of his column was

name from time to time to suit the season. He
