The staff of the 1941 Crescent has decided to publish
the news of the present school year by television. This
broadcast, by word and by picture, is the twenty-fifth an-
nual broadcast of our high school. It originates in the High
School of Elwood, Indiana, which is located in the heart of
the Middle West. As the various scenes andactivities de-
mand, we are going to transfer you from our central "send-
ing" room to various other points, both within and without
this building "to catch" the various phases of student and
faculty life. '
Dorthy Dellinger, our editor-in-chief, will carry on the
program from this point.

THE SENDING ROOM
Hello, everybody. This is Dorthy Dellinger, editor-in-
chief of the 1941 Crescent, introducing this, the yearly edi-
tion of the Elwood High School Annual.
In this twentieth century broadcasting is one of the
great achievements in science. Because of theimportant part
brwdcasting plays in our lives, we propose to show in this
edition of the Crescent, the possibilities of broadcasting
the activities of the students and faculty of the Elwood High
We of the Crescent staff ask you to join us as we pre-
sent, by word and picture, an imaginary broadcast of the
events and happenings of the school year of 1940-41.
As my first duty, I have the privilege of giving the dedi-
cation of our book.
To the earnest students of the Elwood High School, who
by their faithful work promote the general well-being of our
school and .elevate it to a higher standard of success, we, the
Crescent Staff ,of 1941, respectfully dedicate this annual.
The American flag proudly waves above our studio doo
ELWOOD HIGH SCHOOL
Dorotha Ann l-lancher will now give you a description of our high school.
Thank you, Dorothy, and good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, It is my great
pleasure to usher you through our high school. The structure looks so magnificent that
I am sure you wish to stop to see the inside.
The lawn is spacious and very beautifully dressed in its green grass with the proud
trees and shrubs lending more beauty. Over all of this splendor the flag waves majes-
The front of the building consists largely of windows with glass doors marking the
entrance. The wide stairway leads into a friendly hall with a floor covered in dark red
and green. At the top of the stairs loom two large oak doors leading into an auditorium.
Over these doors hangs a beautiful white statue the "Winged Victory." On either side of
the auditorium doors are cases. One is the trophy case displaying the trophies the school
has won. The students look on this with pride. The other case is used to display class
projects and many other items. One thing that seems a spot of interest is the large bulle-
tin board. which has everything on it from notes someone has found, to class announce-
ments. The office of the principal and attendance keeper is over the front stairs with
two short stairways on each side over which are small statues done in white. We are
especially impressed by the method we employ in using the main stairways. The one on
our left is the "up" stairs and the one on the right is the "down" stairs. This is done, as
we know, to insure convenience while changing classes.
The most impressive room of the building is the library, which is found near the au-
ditorium. It is a large, many windowed room filled with comfortable tables and chairs.
Nearly all of the three walls are lined with books ranging from science to romantic
novels. In the wall to the right, above the shelves, is a beautiful frieze also made of
white. Around the room are busts, statues, and pictures, which all go to make up this
beautiful well-kept room.
Nearly all of the rooms and the study halls are the scenes of much gaiety and
study. The chemistry room is interesting with all of its mysterious bottles and appara-
tus. Across the hall from the chmistry room, we find a room completely dark. This is
where classroom movies are shown. We are also proud of the shop, where boys learn
many things about wood and metal craft. The sewing and cooking rooms, where girls
were learning to sew and to make delicious goodies, are also interesting.
The last place we shall take you is to the old gymnasium. This is where parties and
dances are held. It is an excellent recreational room.
Now that you have seen our high school, we hope that you feel that it would be a
great pleasure to attend school here Where the building looks so magnificent and in-

Mulford fMuff1 Davis will now speak concerning our gymnasium.
Thank you, Dortny. In 1891 Dr.Naismith originated the game of basketball because
he wanted to make a winter sport for his physical education class. Ever since that year
there have been hundreds of gymnasiums built all over the world. These gymnasiums
are built primarily for basketball and physical education classes, but the gymnasium is
used for many other purposes too. Gymnasiums are used for political rallies and for
school and community gatherings, so that a gymnasium is a very important building in
Like thousands of other towns all over the world. Elwood has a gymnasium of which
its citizens are proud. Nearly every gymnasium is built on a different pattern. We see
some gymnasiums with two, three, four, or even five doors. We see some with windows
on two, three, or perhaps four sides of the building, but, no matter how they are built,
the one purpose of the gymnasium is to take care of the crowds which attend the dif-
Our gymnasium is a brick structure with cement pillars around the top of the
bricks and, also, over the four entrances. We have two sets of doors at each entrance.
Our gymnasium is built with bleachers all around the floor except on the south end of
the floor where we have a stage fifty feet long and twenty-five feet wide. We have a
regulation size floor. We have our school letter painted in the center of the floor. The
steel structure overhead is made up of right and forty-five degree angles. On these
structures we have pennants of other schools of the Central Indiana Conference. We have
two large press boxes on the east side of the playing floor. We have ticket offices at
three of the four entrances. In the southwest corner of the gymnasium we have an ele-
vator which is used in lifting articles from the basement up to the main floor.
I have been in the dressing rooms and basements of many gymnasiums all over the
state,and I have not seen any that are better than ours. We have six or seven fine dress-
ing rooms. They all have windows opening to the outside. They all have showers which
can be run very easily. We have a hall which goes all the way around the basement of
the gymnasium. We have fourteen rooms which open into this hall. We have equipment
rooms, coaches, and janitors' rooms. We have four entrances to our basement. Our gym-
nasium is connected to our school building. We can reach the gymnasium through the
shop room. This is very nice on rainy or cold days, when we have to go to the gymna-
sium from the school building.
We wish to show you at this time four other
school buildings not shown on the two preceding
pages. These are our grade buildings known as Wash-
ington, Edgewood. Osborn, and Linwood. These four
buildings, enrolling pupils in grades I to VI, together
with the Central School grade building shown at the
right of the Senior High School and the Gymnasium
comprise the Elwood school system. These grade
buildings are important because many of our high
school students received their early school instruction
in them and later enrolled as high school pupils. The
approximate enrollment at the present time in our
schools is as follows: Washington, 125g Edgewood,
1653 Osborn, 1403 Linwood, 2853 Central grades I-VI
300-Junior High, 300g and Senior High, 600. This
makes a a total enrollment of over 1900 pupils.

OUR SCHOOL OFFICIALS
We wish to present to you the members of our school board, our superintendent, and
our principal. These people are important because back of each school there must be a
governing' body. The members of our school board are Mr. Tom D. McCarty, presidentg
Mr. E. W. Drake, secretaryg and Mr. Ray .I. Nudingr, treasurer. The force of these men,
who are especially wide-awake and progressive, is behind every worth-while school
Two other men who are very capable and who exercise direct authority over us are
Mr. C. C. llillis, principal,and Mr. William F. Smith, superintendent. We feel that these
men have wisely directed us during our high school career. We are fortunate in having
them as officials of our school.

9 SCHOOL OFFICIALS
The teachers who form the instructive basis upon or from which we students carry
on nearly all school activities are very important. Esther Gill will tell you something
Thank you, Dorthy.
A few weeks ago the teachers came to school all dressed up. They were all smiles
and in a very good mood. They knew, as we soon discovered, that they were making
preparation for this great broadcasting event by having their pictures taken.
I am glad to present such a fine faculty, and I feel that the school is more than jus-
tified in being proud of them. Our teachers are very well fitted to the subjects they
teachg therefore, we have able and efficient instructors. Miss Grosswege is teaching al-
gebra to her classes from a work book of her own composition which makes her distin-
guished in this field, Public speaking, being synonymous to stage fright, would be
greatly slighted by many students if it were not for Mr. Brown's ability and personality
which make the course very popular among the students. We pride ourselves also in
having one of the best equipped high school chemical laboratories in the, state. This
equipment together with a very capable teacher make this science very popular.
No department of school activities has been abused by employing incompetent in-
structors: Our athletic division, which plays no minor part in school life, is moving for-
ward' under its present supervisors, Miss McCammon Mr, Cauldwell and Mr. Francis.
The co-operation of participants in these sports commands the .interest and loyalty of
the student body. We have a fine music department, which is steadily progressing under
the direction of Mr. Gillkie. Our band and chorus are assets to our school.
The English teachers have been very successful in their corresponding activities
such as coaching our debating teams and directing plays. Mr. Nuding has very success-
fully supervised the publishing of this, our Crescent.
Every teacher will long be remembered bv some individual trait that clearly distin-
guishes him or her .from all other teachers. Mr. Ashton's story of the "Chief Bone of
Contention" is almost as traditional as "Miss Cox's Basket." Miss Allen surely knows
all the important dates from the time of the cave men until the present dav. Probably
the only dates she does not know are those best remembered by the girls and boys. Miss
Nash knows not only how to record cash receipts, but, according to the "Senior Trip
Fund Barometer," how to bring cash in.
You, no doubt, have fondly gazed in admiration at the men who have .excelled in
book knowledge and who then have marchei on into higher realms of technical profes-
sions. Those men may be great, but we, the students, feel that greater honor is due to
our teachers who have risen in various fields of learning but have turned, and re-
traced their steps to the high school, that they might direct us in laying the founda-
tion for our future lives.
We sincerely appreciate the ability of our instructors in the various subjects they
teach and for the cooperation and interest that is a common factor in their attitude to-
ward each pupil.
I shall conclude my introduction of the teachers by inserting a poem of my origi-
nal composition. I have entitled this poem "The Modern School Ma'am."

THE SEN IORS
Seniors are an important part of our school. For that reason I wfill now present as
a part of our program, a senior, Elizabeth Sage, who will tell us just what has been ac-
complished by her class during their high school career. Carry on, Elizabeth.
Thank you. Dorthy, I am very happy to represent my class.
Here we are drawing to the close of our high school career. When we entered El-
wood High School in 1936, we did not realize that we would ever be those dignified sen-
iors which we had heard so much about. Now we find that we are in the same position
as those seniors we so admired. We hope that we have set a good example for those un-
der classmen who perhaps look up to us now.
We have a very illustrious group of students in our class. When we were freshmen,
we w-ere very self-sufficient-at least in our own eyes. Our real activity as a class began
when we were sophomores. It was in this year that we chose our sponsor and organized
as a class.
As juniors, we set out to make a name for ourselves, and won fame in all scholastic
activities. Th-roughout those three years we had been struggling to gain recognition for
ourselves. This we eventually accomplished.
Our class has made a brilliant showing because so many of its members have been
engaged in many of the school-activities.
We realize that many of these oppotrunities would not have been ours had they
not been made possible through the help of the faculty. To them we now proffer our
To you, under-classmen, we give the responsibility of carrying on. Our hope for you
is that you, like us, may gain much from your high school experiences.
Four years we trod within your realm,
Oh, School, as students true g
Faithfully labored near the helm,
As we were passing through.
We love the trail you've led us o'erg
Your codes and rules have been
A patriots wealth and even more
To every citizen.
Toward your lofty ideals we've pressed
With courage you inspiredg
That noble standard you've possessed
W'e've ardently admired.
Let our talents and virtues be
Guides for those remaining,
In our efforts may they see
Assets worth obtaining.
If we've added to your gladness
As you've made our joys increase:
It's with fond remembrances
These golden days will cease.

has decided that the members will make almost as .good seniors as her class has. She
'gilll now tell you something about the achievements of the junior class. Carry on. Rose
Thank you, Dorthy. The members of the junior class have a great responsibility be-
fore them. They must take upon themselves the work that will come to them as seniors.
T'hey realize the magnitude of their responsibility and feel that they are qualified to
Three years ago when they entered high school as freshmen, their school life was
rather uneventful. When they became sophomores, they became a more definite part
of our school. During this year they elected sophomores and officers.
Now we find that they as juniors have accomplished a great deal. They take part -in
many activities. On the basketball teams we find Thomas Davis, William McQuinn,
Donald Powell, Robert McGraw, and Harold Lambert. On the football 'team we find
Thomas Davis, William McQuinn, John Kelich, Andrew Kincaid, Robert Alder, Robert
Davis, Jack Copher, Robert McCan, and Richard McCullough.
There are other activities in which juniors participate. In the music organizations
we find several juniors. The following are members of the band: Helga Blumenthal,
Lauranell Carter, Jack Copher, Richard Hughes. Richard McCullough, Eliybeth
Ploughe, Dorothy Wesseler, Louise Wittkamper, and Elsie Wood. The following juniors
belong to the high school chorus: Rufth Bell, Mosie Harmon, Margaret Kiefer, Richard
McCullough, Ruth McDaniel, Mary Louise McNeal, Mary Belle Manis, Elihbeth
Ploughe, J oeanna Sharp, Lando Reichart, Marjory Smith, Dorothy Wesselefr, Helen Wal-
lace and Elsie Wood. ,
Joan Everling, Esther Dellinger, and Rosemary Blair afre members of the' Annual
Staff. , ,
This is a brief resume of the history of the junior class. We feel sure that next year
there will be much to write about concerning this class. '
Hail to our high school, the pride of our youth,
A symbol of loyalty, knowledge, and truth.
Its purpose and duties have set it apart
And made it the theme of each student's heart.
Its inanimate structure is silent and stillg
It stands without life or motion, until,
An enlivened soul of girls and boys
In assembly and classroom it employs.
Its pupils are making steady progress,
Youths who are building for tomorrow's success,
As a monument it will ever stand,
To those who've made it the best in the land.

Much can be said about the pleasures a boy or girl receives while attending high
scho0l+.However, according to Ann Lois Leeson, high school life has its problems as well.
One of these problems with her is that of getting to school on time. She will now tell
fWritten by one who knowsj
Punctuality is a wonderful quality to have-how well I realize that. Every New
year, and sometimes when it is not New Year, I make this resolution: "I resolve to be
on time for school every day." But, as New Year resolutions go, so goes mine.
It is a dreadful feeling to know I am going to be late. It is 8:13. Running up the
school walk, I have all kinds of thoughts flying through my mind, and finally, when I
know the fatal minute is drawing close, I even resort to praying: "Oh God, please let
me make it this morning. I promise to be on time tomorrow."
It is 8:14. I discover this disheartening news when I give a quick glance at the clock,
while running past to bound up the steps three at a time. My coat and hat are throvsm
at the nearest hook, and I run to my locker. Of course, my lock will not open the first
time I try to work it-it just will not at a time l-ike this. And when it finally does open,
the books I so hastily jammed in the night before fall out. This is the last straw! In
hurrying, my fingers are all thumbs, so for each book I pick up, I drop another. All
hopes of reaching class on time are vanished, and the next instant the fatal bell rings.
As Caesar would say, "The die is cast." There is no turning back-the only direc-
tion I am going is forward-forward to the office!
"Good morning, Mr. Hillis,"l I say very brightly, and then add meekly, "I am
"What, again?" comes the reply. "This is getting to be a habit! Well, the next
time . . ."
It is a relief to finally have a permit to get into class.
Then comes 'the next step, that of going into class, knowing that everyone knows I
am late. I feel about as important as a splinter in the floor and would gladly be one
rather than to have to feel those eyes following me across the room and back again.
But what must be done must be done, so I draw a deep breath and walk in to face
All in all, it really would be better to be on time and save myself all the bother.
You need not tell me I should practice what I preach: I know it!

Heflin, Chester Paskell, Thurman Runyan, Walter Moore, and Paul Lindley.
The following sophomores are members of the band: Johanna Burton, John

still better than they have as sophomores. '
THE, SPICE OF SCHOOL LIFE
When the happy hours of school days
Grow monotonous and blue,
When the day begins to lengthen
And seems as long as two,
When chemistry or English
Is more difficult to learn,
And the teacher' is not liberal
To give unless we earn, ,g
There is always some small recompense
That makes our joy abound,
For in all the school activities
The spice of life is found.
Tests and examinations are
Quite fair and sane, I know:
But how unfair they seem to be
When our grades drop too low.
In classes where we ought to shine,
Forgour lessons are easy to get
We silently sit and watch the show
Put on by someone's pet.
But there is something to ease
The pang we so sharply feel,
The dividends that school life pays
Is the spice of life that's real.

The beginning of anything is usually the hardest. All freshmen discover this very
soon after they enter high school. It is not the subjects that make it hard for the
freshies, but the mere fact that they are new, green, and innocent fany other word
you wish to usel. Even then things would not be so bad if it were not for the
upperclassmen. These help things along by passing out words of wisdom, such as
not to be late to classes, not to date seniors, not to walk too.fast down the hall,
not to walk up the "Down" stairs or vice versa, plus a few dozens of other warnings.
You can see what a strain every freshman must undergo. Of course, this does
not last long, for after a time the innocent freshies become,"stale." By "stale",
we mean that the more advanced students lose interest in them as beginners.
The freshmen class this year is capably represented in music, debating, dramatics,
and sports. Barbara Kimmerling, Jenester Noland, and Frances Parker are on our
debating teams. In sports we find Richard Bannon, Lyle Clapper, James Hook, Roy
Hutcheson, Robert Justice, Howard Lambert, David Locke, and Elmer Wiegert.
Seven freshmen are members of the band: Robert Champion, Walter Franklin,
Dorothy Havens, Oliver Haynes, David Locke, Earl Reasoner, Juanita Snyder, and
Cathryn Wesseler. The following are members of the high school chorus: Ernest

THERE IS SUNSHINE UP THE WAY
Does life seem a disappointment?
Are the skies bedimmed with cares?
Does it seem that all is hopeless?
Not even answered seem your prayerst
Does your load grow more than heavy
As you travel day by day?
Be not discouraged. for I am sure,
There is sunshine up the way.
Have the flowers of this life,
That bloomed with hope and joy,
Withered and faded from your sight,
Only your pleasures to destroy?
Has that overflow of victory
Left your soul to stay?
Be not discouraged, for I am sure.
There is sunshine up the way.
Do the valleys seem more numerous,
Than even the smallest peak?
Does every added trial or test.
Cause your strength to become more weak?
And are not even the angels near you,
When you kneel to pray?
Be not discouraged, for I am sure,
There is sunshine up the way.
There is light :midst the darkest clouds.
There is hope in the saddest hour.
There is a rainbow coming from
The sunshine and the shower.
Arise and shine, God hears your prayers.
Dont pass your time in sad dismay.
Be not discouraged, for I am sure,
There is sunshine up the way.

Have you ever heard someone say, "Why I'm an E student ?" and then have
you taken a good look at him? Usually his appearance belies an E student.
There is no tradition about these select pupils which is seldom broken. It
seems that they are eccentric in manner, peculiarly dressed, and unusually
oddbgmking. Think of your favorite honor students. Are they not as I de-
Why cannot all super-students be placed in a class by themselves ? Now in
every class I am in, there is an E student. Now, of course, we all acknowl-
edge their brilliance, but do they have to know all of the answers. Just
after I have thought and thought and finally hit upon the answer, there
they are, just a second before me, and, of course, they are always right!
Have those students never made an M or P, or even a lowly G? It does
sound fine to say. "I've always made E's," but that seems so monotonous and
uninteres-ting. As we are only human, we have a better liking for people
who are not too superior. Think of all the hard studying they have done, the
books they have carried home, and, most of all, the fun they have missed in
life. Think of the times they have said, "Sorry, I can't go to the show, I
have to study." They may get enjoyment from having their lesson the
next day, but I will bet I get more happiness from going to the show.
If you are an E student, what have you to look forward to when your
report card comes? Just another string of E"s! How boring! The average
student has the suspense of wondering what grade he will receive, and the
j-oy of seeing that he has improved a little.
These E students form a problem which will have to be linked with un em-
ployment, fires. and storms as unsolvable.
Thchers, please note. I was only joking about what I said about the "E's" and'the "E"
students. Please, please be liberal with the "E's" when you put the grades on my card.
I am worvdrlng how it would feel to get all "E's". I am sure I could survive the shock.l

Thank you, Dorthy. Our 1940 edition of the Elwood Panthers was without a doubt
the smallest group of gridsters that have worn the Elwood colors in the last ten years.
Even though the players were small, they made up for this in their fight. They went
into every game with a determination to wing and this characteristic gained for them
the admiration of the fans, opposition and local alike.
The greater number of this year's teams were underclassmen, and those returning
will be a fine nucleus for next year's team. There were several sophomores and juniors
who earned for themselves by hard work a position on the first eleven. Also next year,
Coach Cauldwell will have a very good freshman eleven to add to his list of veterans.
Though this season was not so successful from the standpoint of games won and
lost, it was a great improvement over the previous year. The locals were held scoreless in
only one game this year and often outplayed larger and more experienced teams only
to lose by a break in the game.
The Panther schedule was one that would have given trouble to any team in the
state, and, considering the caliber of the opposition, the Panthe1's have a very good ac-
count of themselves. If fighting spirit, alone, had decided the final outcome of the game,
our team would have ended the season undefeated. A greater number of reserves on
the other teams and a few breaks decided the games in the favor of our opponents.
This year six seniors are graduating, and their places will be hard to fill. Those
graduating are David Ross, Gerald Burton, Paul Burton, Urban Altherr, Dale Smith and
Bill Davies. We will miss these boys and sincerely wish they could be with us for an-

SUMMARY OF FOOTBALL GAMES
PANTHERS DROP INITIAL GAME OF' SEASON. Anderson 18-Elwood 6. A small
inexperienced Elwood eleven held a strong Anderson team for the final quarters after
the Indians had tallied twice in the first quarter of the game. Collier scored for the
locals near the end of the second quarter on a line plunge. Our boys really showed a
great improvement over the previous year and gave promise of having an improved
WABASH TAKES THRILLER. Wabash 20-Elwood 6. Our boys played on equal terms
for the first half which ended 6-6. In the last half the Wabash reserve power began to
show itself, and they pushed over a touchdown in each the third and fourth quarter.
Our only score was made by Tom Davis in the second quarter.
MARION GIANTS DOWN PANTHERS. Marion 35-Elwood 12. As the season wore on,
it became more and more evident that the Panthers needed more reserve power, As in
the other two games this was a good game at the half 5 but Marion seemed to grow
stronger as the game progressed, while Elwood weakened. This game did bring ouft one
thing, our passing threat G. Burton to Moore. Moore scored both of our touchdowns in
t is way. '
PANTHERS LOSE AGAIN. Kokomo 44-Elwood 0. After three good games our Pan-
thers were due for a let down, and the game with Kokomo -was the one. Kokomo, after
having been held down during the first half, came with a rush the second half and made
the game a rout. It w'as the only game of the- season in which the locals did not score.
IRISH DEFEAT ELWOOD ELEVEN. Cathedral 27--Elwood 12. After a let down in the
last game, the Panthers came back to play a much improved game. The gamefwas much
closer than the statistics showed. The boys all played hard. In the final quarter Colliei
received a leg injury which hampered him greatly the remainder of the season. Ou'r two
touchdowns were scored by G. Burton and P. Burton.
ELWOOD-ALEXANDRIA BATTLE TO A TIE. Elwood 6-Alexandria 6. It seemed for
a while that this was to be the locals' first victory of the season but Alexandria tied the
score on a pass and the game ended that way. All of Elwood's gains were made through
the air 3 and if the running attack had been up to standard, it would have meant a victory
for the locals. Bob Alder scored our touchdown on a pass from Gerald Burton.
WEST LAFAYETTE AND ELWOOD TIE. West Lafayette 7-Elwood 7. This was
without a doubt the locals' best game of the year. They completely out-played their opl
ponents who out-weighed them considerably. Elwood had many scoring chances but
failed to capitalize on all but one of them. West Lafayette scored first, and the Pan-
thers tied it up in the second half. Tom Davis scored the touchdown on an end sweep. Bill
'McQuinn scored the extra point on a pass.
NOBLESVILLE NOSES OUT ELWOOD. Noblesville 7-Elwood 6. If ever a team de-
served to win a game, the Panthers deserved this one. They played the Millers off their
feet for the greater part of the game, and then lost out before a last half rush of the
Miller . Elwood scored first and then scored again but were called hack because of a pen-
alty. oblesville scored in the fourth quarter and made good the extra point which
proved to be the margin of victory. G. Burton scored on a reverse in the second quarter.
SOUTII SIDE TRIUMPHS OVER PANTHERS. South Side 33-Elwood 7. After this
game it became evident that the Panthers were worn after a long, hard season played
almost entirely without reserves. Although the team was being out-played, the players
never gave up and even managed to push over a score on a pass from G. Burton to
Bob Moore, Burton scored the extra point on an end run.
ELWOOD DEFEATED IN FINAL GAME OF SEASON. Peru 25-Elwood 6. The last
game of the season gave everyone a chance to play and uncovered a few things that
show well toward building a team for next year. Peru was too strong for the scrappy
but small Elwood team and the game was never close at any time. Chester Pascal,
junior fullback, scoredlthe Panthers' touchdown.

Charles Myers Jack Remingtor
The real unsung hero of the athletic depart-
ment of any high school is the student man-
ager. He is the little fellow who does all of the
dirty work, runs all of the errands, and gets
nothing in return except a calling down when
he does something wrong. Indeed, the life of
the student manager is no pathway of roses.
This year Elwood was fortunate in having
two boys who were very efficient in this work.
These were Jack Remington, a senior, and
Charles Myers, a junior. These two boys per-
formed their tasks all season with efficiency
and speed. Charles was connected with both the
football and the basketball squads, while Jack
confined his activities to the basketball squad.
This job, though little known to the general
public, is one of the most important jobs con-
nected with athletics. These boys deserve all
the applause they receive.
Bill Davies 1571, senior, tackle-Bill is one of the hardest hitting
lineman on the beam. He won all-conference honors in his junior year.
His graduation will leave a hole that will be hard to fill,
Robert Alder 1411, junior, end-Bob was one of the regular ends
and will be back again next year to carry on his fine defensive work.
Robert Moore 1871, senior, end-Bob is without a doubt one of the
hardest hitting ends to ever don an Elwood uniform. For the past two
years Bob has been elected on the Central Indiana All-Star team. He
will be greatly missed.
Cedric Wise 1721, iunior, center-This large husky boy will be back
again next year to fill the regular position he held this year.
John Kelich 1761, junior, tackle-John earned his varsity berth at
mid-season and held it for the rest of the year. He should be valuable
Paul Burton 1751, senior, halfback-Paul's left-handed passes fooled
many a defense and his crashing blocks cleared the path for many long
Thurman Runyan 1431, sophomore, tackle-"Thurm", who was in-
jured last year, will be back next year to try to earn a starting position.
Ernest Reichart 1631, junior, guardfErnie was the mainstay on
defense during the last season. His power and fighting spirit got him
many a tackle. He is an ideal running guard.
Jack Copher 1711, junior, tackle-"Ollie" was a tower of strength
on defense and opened many holes for the backs on offense. He will
be a mainstay next season.
Thomas Davis 1431. junior halfback--"Tom" is a shifty open-field
runner with plenty of drive. He gained a great deal of yardage this
year. He should be a mainstay next year,
Ralph Collier 1741, senior, fullback-Ralph was noted for his terrific
plunging and great work in backing up the line. He also did a great
share of the kicking duties.
Urban Altherr 1911. senior, center-"Urb" fought his way up from
the reserve team and gained- a varsity berth. His fight inspired the
team in many tight places.
Robert McCan 1371, junior, halfbackwBoh was the blocking back
last year and it is upon his shoulders that most of the work will rest
next year.- "Mac" will do the passing and kicking along with his back-
field duties. He is a real veteran and the best blocker on the team.
Carl Scott 147v, junior, guard Carl is a rough and tough watch-
charm guard, who will make plenty of trouble for the opposition. He
should be a regular guard next year.
Dale Smith 1783, senior, end -Dale was the reserve end who always
played wr-ll when called upon. He always showed plenty of fight.
Walter Moore 1813, sophomore, guard--Walter was an obstacle when
it came to piling up the plays of the opposition. With two years to go,
he should be a real star.
Gcrald Burton 1733. senior, quarterback'-On GeraId's shoulders rested
s great portion of this year's work. The scrappy little field-general did
the passing. shared the kicking duties, and was one of the most elusive
runners on the team.
Andrew Kincaid 4793. junior. tackle -Andy is a thorough, hard-work-
ing boy who is very dependable. He should get a chance to play during
the coming year.
Robert Davis 4533, junior, tackle-Bob, with all of his size and
weight, was very valuable in the line this year and should be even better
next year. A
Richard McCullough 1333, junior, quarterback--Dick is a small but
elusive runner and a deadly tackler. He should be valuable during the
John Robert Davis 1773, senior, tackle--John was a capable reserve
who was used as a utility lineman. He was always in there fighting.
When called upon he always responded with a well-played game.
David Ross VI03, senior, end--Dave didn't see much action, butbwhen
he was in the game he gave a good account of himself. A hard worker,
Dave gave all he had while in the game.
Chester Paskell 4233. sophomore, fullback-V-Chet is the champion run-
ner of the team. He hasi a world of speed and is a good pass receiver.
His speed makes him a valuable asset to the team.
William McQuinn 1313, junior, halfback-Bill won his second letter
in football and will return next year. Bill will probably do some of the
passing. His seriousness makes him a likely candidate for a regular

FRESHMAN FOOTBALL SQUAD
This year's edition of the Panther football kittens is one that would gladden the
heart of any football coach. Speed is a great asset in itselfg size is one thing' a football
team must haveg and football sense is as necessary to the production of a good team as
the ball is to the game. Any one of these three things is a great asset fora team to
have, but for a team to have all three is something that coaches dream about. The re-
serve team for this year had all of these assets.
Next year will prove whether these assets will stand up under varsity competition.
If the players show up as well in varsity competition then, as they did during this sea-
son, they will make plenty of trouble for their opponents.
Under Carl Renner and Harry Bridges these boys have learned the fundamentals
that are necessary for all football players to possess if they are to be of value to their
team. Their size, ability, and love of the game along with the coaching they will receive
from Coach Cauldwell should develop this group into one of the best 'football aggrugae
ions that have ever donned the Panther uniforms.
VARSITY BASKETBALL SQUAD. Front Row: Glenn Locke, Gerald Burton, George
Shaw, Tom Davis, and Harold Lambert. Back Row: James Copeland, Raymond Nuding,
Jack Blankenship, Mulford Davis, Thurman Runyan, and Robert McGraw.
This season's quintet, playing under handicaps most of the year, ended the season
with the feeling of a good job well done. It is true that from the standpoint of -tourna-
ment play it was not a successful season. During the regullar season the Panthers won
and lost eleven games. However, neither of these facts shows the real result of this
Playing in severe competition from beginning to end, the Panthers always put up a
fight and never gave up. The greater part of the season was played with at least one
player on the bench or too sick to play his best game. When the whole team was in good
shape, they played excellently. They won some and lost some, however, win or lose,
they always fought to the end.
The season started out with a win, and from then on the games were won and lost
in turn, until at last the season ended with a record of eleven won and eleven lost.
Playing in the strong Central Indiana Conference, the Panthers finished in second place
with a record of seven wins and two losses.
This year's team was mainly a veteran outfit, with six seniors on the varsity. These
senior boys gave all they had at all times, and the school will miss them very much.
The graduating seniors are Mulford Davis, Raymond Nuding, Gerald Burton, Glenn
Locke, Jack Blankenship, George Shaw, and senior student-manager, Jack Remington.
Though it will be hard to replace these boys, Coach Francis and the fans can look
forward to a large group of under-classmen. Robert McGraw, James Copeland, Harold
Lambert, Thomas Davis, and Thurman Runyan are left over from the varsity, while
Donald Powell, Don Heflin, Eldon Floyd, William McQuinn, Bobby Williams, and Howl-
ard Lambert are ready to come up from the reserve squad.

Raymond Nuding 111, senior, forward-Ray was the consistent player of the team. For
the first half of the season he played guard and then was shifted to forward to fill that
Jack Blankenship 121, senior, center-Jack was the tallest player on the team. He
used this height to advantage all through the season. He scored many points on tip-ins.
Gerald Burton 131, senior, guard-Gerald, called "Punk" by the members of the team,
was a fighter. He saved several games and scored many points on fight alone. He im-
proved all the time and was at his best late in the season.
Mulford Davis 141, senior, 'forward-"Muff" ended four years of basketball at E. H. S.
just as he started, in a blaie of glory. He became twenty before the season ended, which
made him ineligible for any high school athletics. He will be missed greatly by the
fans and followers of the team.
Glenn Locke 151, senior, guard-He, along with Gerald Burton, formed the latest Pan-
ther edition of "pony guards." Though small, he proved dangerous when one basket was
needed. He shot few times but usually scored when he did.
Thomas Davis 161, junior, forward-Tom was a capable reserve, who did not see much
action 'until late in the season. He showed promise of being one of the Panther main-
stays for the coming season.
Robert McGraw 171, junior, forward-Bob proved to be one of the real "finds" of the
season. He came from last year's second team to lead the team in many of its fights
to victory. '
George Shaw 181, senior, forward-George was the capable, dependable reserve who
was used in any position at any time it was necessary. He played a good brand of ball
all the time,
James Copeland 191, sophomore, forward-Jim fought himself up from the second
team to earn himself a berth on the varsity. He is one of the boys to watch next year.
Thurman Runyan 1101, sophomore, center-Thurman is another second team member
who earned a place on the varsity. He was a hard worker. His size and weight make
him a valuable asset to the team.
Harold Lambert 1111, junior, guard-Harold will probably be the varsity guard for next
year. Because of his size and experience he will be very valuable to the team.
RESERVE BASKETBALL SQUAD: Donald Powell, Eldon Floyd, William McQuinn
Don Heflin, Thurman Runyan, James Copeland, Tom Davis, and Harold Lambert.
SUMMARY OF BASKETBALL GAMES
PANTHERS WIN OPENING GAME. Elwood 44-Frankton 31. The Pan-
thers showed up well in their first game of the season and seemed destined
to go places. Bob McGraw, junior forward. showed that he was to be one
of the mainstays of the team. Muff Davis, reliable high-scorer, also showed
that he had not lost his basket eye by scoring 14 points.
IRISH DOWN PANTHERS. Elwood 23-Pendleton 33. Elwood was forced
to play this game without the services of Muff Davis who was forced to
the sidelines by sickness. The locals played a very good game and lost only
because of their inability to hit the basket. Jack Blankenship, Panther
center, Played 2 Very fine game and led the team in scoring.
PANTHERS LOSE TO KOKOMO. Elwood 23-Kokomo 53. Our first game
against a member of the North Central Conference proved to be a very ex-
citing one. This game was lost because of a lapse in the Panthers' defense
and some uncanny shooting on the part of the Kokomo players. Gerald Bur-
ton played a fine floor game before going out on fouls in the third quarter.
Ray Nuding led the scoring with 16 points.
ELWOOD WINS SECOND GAME. Elwood 28-Alexandria 19. This game
marked the first Panther win in the Central Indiana Conference. It was a
slow, uninteresting game with neither side able to hit with any regularity.
It was not until late in the fourth quarter that Elwood was able to pull
away for a victory.
LOCALS WIN THRILLER. Elwood 29-Tipton 28. This proved to be the
most exciting game of the season up to date and the locals played a very
good floor game during the entire battle. Tipton led at the half but the Pan-
thers caught up with them and finally passed them in the final quarter.
It was our second C. I. C. victory of this year. ,
TROJANS DEFEAT PANTHERS. Elwood 27-New Castle 41. The old
story of too little defense again proved too much for the Panthers. After
holding the highly touted Trojans to a three-point lead for three quarters,
the Panthers, defense fell apart and the Trojans led by Marshall Koontz
soon piled up the overwhelming lead.
ST. MARY'S- LOSES TO ELWOOD. Elwood 40-St. Marys of Anderson
39. Playing a very weak team the Panthers suffered from the old menace,
over-confience, and were forced to overcome a ten-point deficit late in the
fourth quarter. Muff Davis led a last-quarter rally which gave the locals
their margin of victory.
APACHES BOW TO PANTHERS. Elwood 48-Wabash 43. Playing one of
the stronger teams of the C. I. C., the Panthers played one of their best
games of the year. Elwood went ahead in the first quarter and held a com-
manding lead during the entire game which was never threatened until the
final few minutes when Wabash started a belated rally. Bob McGraw led
the locals with 19 points most of which came on tip-ins.
PANTHERS LOSE IN NEW YEARKS DAY TOURNAMENT. As in the
previous years the Panthers refused to play ball in this tournament and
were defeated in theirffirst game with Tipton. It seems as ifrthe Elwood
teams never can get started in this particular tournament. As a consola-
tion, however, the Panthers managed to eke out a double overtime victory
over the Alexandria Tigers.
ELWOOD LOSES FOURTH GAME. Elwood 32-Lebanon 33. The Pan-
thers snapped back from a let-down in the New Year's Day Tournament
and played a brilliant brand of basketball and were defeated only in the last
few minutes of play. The locals moved the ball well and showed no signs of
the lethargy that held them in the Tournament. Muff Davis got back into
form and led the Panthers in scoring.
LOCALS WIN FOURTH STRAIGHT IN CONFERENCE. Elwood 28-
Rochester 26. Another conference victory was marked, up by the Elwood
team in an uninteresting game which was marked by many fumbles and
wild passes on both sides. It required a last-minute basket for the Panthers
to eke out their slim victory. Muff Davis added the winning basket in the
last thirty seconds.
PANTHERS TAKE OVERTIME BATTLE. Elwood 28-Southport 27. This
was another overtime victoryi for the Panthers. Southport led all the way
and was not overtaken until the last minute of play. This was another
poorly played game which lacked excitement and interest. Jim Copeland
with 8 points led the Panther scoring.
BURRIS GIVES PANTHER.S FIRST CONFERENCE LOSS. Elwood 24-
Burris 38. Playing against one of the strongest teams in the state the
Panthers made a remarkable showing until late in the third quarter when
the Burris reserve power began to show itself. The game was much closer
than was shown by the score. It was the first Conference loss for the Pan-
thers this year.
FRESHMAN BASKETBALL SQUAD. Front Row: Richard Bannon, William Sigler,
Elmer Wiegert, Robert Justice, Jim Hook, and Jesse McFall. Back Row: Howard Lam-
bert, Jack McQuinn, Max Wilson, Robert French, Eldon Birkinbine, Paul Lindley, and
AGRICULTURE BASKETBALL SQUAD. Kneeling: William Danner fstudent man-

ard Boyd, Curtis Hobbs, and Mulford Davis fstudent coachj. Back Row: Warren
Dailey, Howard Welches, James Hackett, John Kelich. Fred Stoner. and Mosie Harmon.
ELWOOD NOSES OUT ALEXANDRIA. Elwood 31-Alexandria 28. Like
all the other Elwood-Alexandria games this one was a thriller. The Pan-
thers pulled ahead only to have the Tigers fight their way to a tie. The Pan-
hers, however, had enough staying power to end the game with a three-
PANTHERS BOW TO SOUTH SIDE. Elwood 24-South Side 35. After a
long, hard trip the Panthers seemed worn out and played one of their worst
games of the season. Elwood led the first two quarters, but was completely
snowed during the last half. It was merely an example of a whole team
having an off night.
PANTHERS RAP VIKINGS. Elwood 46-Huntington 40. Muff Davis com-
ing back with a vengeance led the pepped-up Elwood team to a victory over
a very strong Huntington Vikings team. Huntington led the entire first
three quarters and was not defeated until a late Panther rally caught them
midway in the final quarter. Nuff Davis with 22 points led the locals in
HOT DOGS TOO HOT FOR PANTHERS. Elwood 36-Frankfort 43. An
unbelievably hot Frankfort five defeated the Panthers in a thrilling game
at Frankfort. The Panthers after spotting the Hot Dogs a thirteen-point
lead at half time, rallied to cut this down to a one-point lead at the three-
quarter mark, but a last-quarter spurt by the Frankfort team put the game
out of reach. Muff Davis with fifteen points led the locals in scoring.
LOCALS TRAMPLE PERU. Elwood 48-Peru 32. Muff Davis in playing
his last game for E. H. S. led the Panthers to an overwhelming victory over
the speedy Peru Tigers. Elwood led by two points at the half but pulled
away in the final sixteen minutes to win their seventh conference game
in eight starts. M. Davis's twenty points wer-e high for the Panthers.
AR SPANGLED BANNER
ELWOOD LOSES SECOND IN CONFERENCE. Elwood 29-Tipton 38.
Playing without the services of Muff Davis, star center, Elwood lost an ex-
citing game to the Tipton Blue Devils. The Panthers played their best floor
game of the year but experienced difficulty in hitting the hoop. The game
was played on even terms in the first and fourth quarters and Elwood out-
scored their rivals in a fast third quarter g- however, an overwhelming ma-
jority by Tipton in the second quarter gave them the victory. Ray Nuding's
twelve points led the Elwood team.
CAVE MEN BEST PANTHERS. Elwood 17-Mishawaka 26. This was a
game where both teams were off, but one was a little worse than the other.
Neither team could hit, and the Panthers were particularly cold. The pass-
ing and floor work was also ragged and the result was a poorly played
game. Nuding with eight points led the Panthers.
CENTRAL CONQUERS PANTHERS. Elwood 39-Central QSouth Bendj
41. The Panthers, playing against a very unorthodox team, made a very
good showing and fought all the way to the final gun. The Bears were hit-
ting and their uncanny ability on some wild shots proved too much for the
Panthers, and the game ended as it had started, with a burst of speed.
IRISH ELIMINATE PANTHERS IN SECTIONAL. Sectional Tournament.
In their first game the Panthers were forced to give all they had to fight off
a scrappy Summitville quintet. G. Burton and McGraw staged a last-quar-
ter drive which ended in a victory for the Panthers. The final score was 36
to 33 in favor of the Panthers. In their second game of the tournament the
Panthers were defeated by a strong Pendleton team. The Panthers
never really got going, and the result was an easy 40 to 31 victory for the

This year marks the end of "Muff" Davis's high
school life. Elwood High School can be justly proud to
say that he has been a member of our student body.
Muff is not just another student. I-Ie is, rather, a
combination of a good student and a very good basket-
ball player. I believe that everyone feels that Muff
will not end his athletic career upon graduating from
the hiizh school.
Let us see what he has accomplished and what
awards he has won in basketball during the past four
In his freshman year he was hiyzh scorer on the
team. He made ninety-nine points in the conference
names. In his sophomore year he won the conference
scoring: and was chosen for the all-conference team.
His award for this honor was a gold plaque.
ln his third year Muff won another gold plaque
for again hz-im: chosen for the all-conference team.
Along with this award, he won two gold basketballs.
One of these was for being chosen all-state center: the
other was for being on the conference championship
CH EER LEADERS
The nimble jack-in-the-boxes who are always jump-
ing around and loading the yells are as important to the
world of athletics as the spice is to the pudding. This
year Elwood was very fortunate in having two peppy
young.: gentlemen. who with their enthusiasm, led the
crowd in the yells that often threatened to tear down
William Coburn and Joe Braun are these two men
und many thanks fro out to them from all members of
the athletic department. Without their good work it is
doubtful if the team would have enjoyed such successful
seasons. lt is not easy to find two boys who will de-
vote as much effort to this activity as these. It re-
quires much time and effort to become efficient at this
type of work. Many evenings after school were spent
hy tht-se two in perfecting the different yells and acro-

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
The student council of our high school is composed of sixteen members. These
members are selected by the officers of the various classes. Each mid-year class is al-
lowed two members, while the spring classes have three. The student council, like other
governmental UIYg2lTliZ2ltfl0l'lS, has officers. The president must be a member of the junior
or sq-ni0r class, The president this year is Elsie Woodg the secretary is Charlotte Ward-
wellg and the sponsor is lV.r. Ashton.
This year we have a very efficient and progressive council. Although the members
meet only once or twice a month, they have been doing commendable work. One of their
principal duties is to select the monitors. This in itself is a great task, for they have
the orderliness of the school at stake. Thev must select students who will uphold the
standards of the school, and those who will fit into the different monitor positions.
For some time this year, the members of the council have been trying to give the
student body something interesting. They have talked of having clubs, recreational
hours, and school entertainments. One of their special undertakings was presenting a
movie. This project received marked approval. -
The student council is a very commendable step toward selfegovernment. To the
minds of most of us, mention of the council brings only one thought, the monitor sys-
tem. It should do much more than that. It should make every student think of those
few people who represent them in they vital affairs of their school life. The student
council is the medium between the average student and the faculty and school offi-
cials. Its purpose is to teach self-government. These facts should be kept in mind and
respect should be given the decisions of this important organization.

Last September, a group of people we"e made happy by the announcement that
they had been selected for memberhip on the high school annual staff. For some, this
was a great surprise. Each person in 'high school hopes that he may, in some way,
merit a place on the staff. Each one who is finally awarded that honor feels proud of
the fart and hopes that he may enjoy the work and benefit greatly by doing it.
For the past several years, Mr. Nuding, a member of the English department,
has supervised the students in this work. Many are the problems that have to be
solved in making such a book.
This year we have a staff that compares favorably with those of the -past several
years. The following students sponsored this yc-ar's annual:
Assistant Editore-Lillian Tanzilli.
Literary Editor-Lura Blackburn.
Assistants-Elizabeth Sage and Rosaline Beach.
Business Manager-Raymond Nuding.
Photographers-Merle Wann and Betty Hinshaw.
Advertisements-Gloria Bell, Esther Dellinger, and Rosemary Blair.
Artists-Joan Everling and Robert Davis.
Joke Editor-Glenn Locke.
Typist-Rose Nell Pace.
Advisor-J. A. Nuding.
The production of an annual requires considerable work. It is the wish of the staff
that the pupils of Elwood High School will enjoy and cherish this book. Granting this.
the members of the staff will consider their time well spent.
DEBATE AND DISCUSSION. Top Row: Don Noble, Paul Lindley, and Barbara Kim-
merling. Bottom Row: Mr. Brown fcoachl,Jenester Noland, Frances Jean Parker, and
DEBATE AND DISCUSSION
This year's debating teams, the youngest in the history of Elwood's inter-school
L rnpetition, got away to a slow start. After practice debates with Greentown and Un-
ion Township, they went to the Rushville invitational tourney on February 1 to win
only against Salem and to lose to North Side of Fort Wayne, New Albany, and Hamil-
ton, Ohio. On February 5 the teams travelei to Hagerstown, where the negative won
and the affirmative lost. On Saturday, February 15 the teams went to Butler to par-
ticipate in their annual fray against Wilev of Terre Haute, only to lose again.
Before the sectonal eliminations, there'ore. the affirmative and negative teams
had been declared winners in but one contest each. Paul Lindley, a sophomore, was the
only debater with any experience. Of the other affirmative speakers, Don Noble and
Barbara Kimmerling, the former was but a sophomore and the latter a freshman.
Both of the negative speakers, Jenester Noland and Frances Jean Parker, were fresh-
men. All in all, our chances of winning the sectional crown looked rather dark.
On February 22 the teams went to Albany to the sectional tourney. It was El-
wood's first time to enter such a contest w'thout some experienced senior or junior
debaters. However, the Elwood team won over Fairmount, Albany, and Sweetser to
carry off the sectional honors without a single defeat. They had won when it really
The regional was held at Butler University, where our teams met Hagerstown
again. This time Hagerstown's experience proved too much for us. With two or three
more years to compete, our debaters should develop into a powerful squad.
DISCUSSION LE AGUE CONTEST
Another activity which has not had much publicity is the Discusson League Con-
test, which is sponsored by Indiana University. The theme of the discussion for this
year was "Trade Barriers." Two schools in District 9 participated: Selma High
School and Elwood High School. There were six contestants wlho met at Salem, Indi-
ana, to discuss the chosen subject. Elwood's representatives were Barbara Kimmer-
ling, Elizabeth Sage, and Don Noble. The winner of this contest was Don Noble, who
as a reward won the chance to compete in the state finals at Indiana University. The
winner of the state contest, if a senior, will be given a scholarship to Indiana Univer-
sity. The winner of the state contest, if a senior, will be given a scholarship to Indi-
ana University. We wish Don good luck.
Both debating and discussion are under the direction of Mr. Brown.
SENIOR CLASS PLAY
The senior play, New Fires, was one ol' the big events of this school year. Each fall and spring dur-
iniz the past years a play was given in which the seniors took an active part. So far these plays have
been very successful, and the play this year was no exception. Some of the parts of this yeai-'s
play were hard to portray, but the people chosen for the cast did vi-ry effective acting. The play
centered about a typical American family and dealt with the problems of everyday life.
The leading characters were as follows: Olive Santry--Helen Dennis, 1131: Phyllis Santry
Rosemary Houston 1111: Stephen Santryf-William King 181: Sir Sperry --Medford Shively 141:
Jerry Sperry William Danner 161: Dick Santry--Vern Ostimz 1171: Mary Marshall Gloria Bell 11211

12111: Make-up Mr. Smith 12111 Costume Miss Allen 1221: Director Mr. Lindley 1231.
The result of the united efforts was a very fine presentation of the play,
In addition to the Senior play, the English department sponsored a series of en-
tertainments as follows:
On March '7 a one-act comedy was presented. The title was "Suitable for Char-
ity." This play was coached by Miss Demaree and was presented by the following stu-
Hazel Greenway-Martha Miller, Morgan Greenway-Avery Smithg Clarie Green-
way-Lilma Sides, William Greenway-Rolland Patton: Ralph Hamilton-Earl Rea-
sonerg Ellen-Donna Wardwellg and Clarence--Garth Day.
On April 4 a farce was presented, the title being "Rickety, Rackety, Radio."
The cast. coached by Virginia Warner, includedithe following:
Grapefruit-Rosella Bambroughg Gridleak-Elmer Eisamang Aarongas-Marjory
Hefling No Nothing Jones-Delbert Fowler: Applejack-John Kelichg Cresote-Mary
Ann Biltzg Radio Voice and Ghost-Bernard Carr.
On April 18 an illustrated lecture was presented. The lecture was given by Dr.
George Schumacher of Butler University. The subject of his lecture was "Indiana Au-
April 9 was the date of another comedy, "Utter Relaxation." The cast was as
Wilbur Edmonson-William McQuinngAmy Edmonson-Harriett Scott, Ella, the
Maid-Rosella Brillhartg Emma Froswick-Virginia Warner, Arthur Clement-Robert
Davisg Joe McGrath-Robert Adams.
The stage managers for the plays were Helen Dennis and Patricia Ballard. Both
wge very efficient workers.
Our high school library is rather large, and for that reason Miss
Allen, the official librarian, feels she needs some student helpers.
Each semester students volunteer to help her in her library work, and
from these volunteers she picks those she thinks are best qualified for
Each period two students help Miss Allen check books in and out,
put the books on the shelves, return the magazines to the rack, and
put the room in order. All this straightening takes place. after the
warning bell at the end of each period. Thus we see that 'the work
these students do really consists of an apprenticeship as librarian.
This practical experience may be very helpful in later life.
The students who have filled these positions this year are Jane
Ann Havens, Mary Irene Allen, Willetta Locke, Martha Blair, George
Shaw, Betty Mae Williams, Lando Reichart, William McQuinn, and
LIBRARY ASSISTANTS Front Row: George Shaw. William McQuinn, and Lando

THE MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION
TURN ON THE LIGHT!
What would you think of a person who went hunting for something on an inky-
black night, and who carried a powerful flashlight in his hand but didn't bother to
turn it on? You'd say he was simply an idiot, and you wouldiit be far wrong.
But a lot of boys and girls are guilty of a similar piece of foolishness almost every
day of their lives. For instance. you see them sitting in school, not bothering to pay
attention to the teacher's words. Do you see the similarity? The object they are hunt-
ing is knowlcdge. The flashlight is their minds, their attention-and they don't bother
to turn it on. Instead, they stumble along in darkness, learning nothing.
You can't learn anything by going to school and just sitting. Of course, you may
be one of 'those poor creatures who don't care whether they ever learn anything or
not-but in that case, you are hopeless. If you do want to learn, think of the parallel of
the flashlight, and turn on the switch!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The staff of the 1941 Crescent believe it to be well worth while to dedicate this
page as good food for thought. We believe that the church notice at the top of this page
is worthy of careful consideration. In order to make this page as valuable as possible,
we are adding two editorials taken from recent issues of the -Indianapolis Sunday
About this time every year a lot of boys and girls begin wondering if they
shouldn't quit school when the term ends next summer and take that job they think
they can get. "Look at Mr. So-and-So," they say. "He quit school when he was 12,
and now he's one of the most important men ,in town."
Well, talk to Mr. So-and-So. He's the only one who can tell you how much farther
he might have gone with a little more education. Perhaps he can explain how much
more easily his success would have come if he'd stayed in school awhile longer, or how
he spent evening after evening in a library, digging out the hard way the knowledge he
could have obtained quickly and conveniently in school.
If you must help out at home, see if you can't get an after-school and Saturday
job. Perhaps you can go to night school or arrange your class hours so you can
work and go to school, too. When the time nnaily comes for you to leave school
for good, you won't have to spend the rest of your life in a job with no past, pres-
ent, or future. .

RULES OF ETIQUETTE FOR E. H. S. STUDENTS
fBy Rosaline Beachj
1. Walk on the school lawn. This will help make a path which will serve as a short
cut to the building for the over-worked seniors.
2. Be late to school whenever possible. This will serve as a good reason for com-
ing early the next morning to make up time.
3. Always enter your recitation room at the last possible moment. This will cause
the teacher and pupils to notice you.
4. When a freshman is lost, introduce him to a senior and let the senior direct
him to his class.
5. Take two or more steps at a time on the stairs,this keeps the steps from wear-
ing out and also saves shoe leather.
6. Always turn on the fountain for your friends when getting a drink. By the time
it is vour turn, the water will be cool.
7. Run up and down stairs between classesg this will keep the monitors busy.
8. Be generous. When you have any gum or candy, offer your friends and teachers
some. fThey will get it anyway.J
9. While walking down the hall, knock the books out of the hands of your neigh-
bors. You will be surprised at the disturbance it causes.
10. If you are fortunate enough to have an upper locker, be sure to take your time
in getting your books. This enables those with lower lockers to get their daily ex-
11. When getting tickets for school functions, be sure to shove and push ahead of
the others. This will draw everyone's attention to your strength.
12. Always have plenty of broken pencils on hand. Pencils always serve as good
reasons for going to the pencil sharpener to look out of the window to keep up on the
13. Carve your initials on your desk. Carvings help to decorate the room and make
it more attractive.
14. When a fellow student drops a pencil, drop yours too, thus attracting the
teacher's attention to you so your friend will escape all possible embarrassment.
15. When reciting, never speak above a whisper in any class because you might
disturb a sleepy neighbor.
16. Spill ink when you get a chance. Spilled ink gives the rooms a colorful atmos-
17. Stuff old notes in the study hall desks. These wiill give the pupils who are in
the room the next period something to read.
18. When you leave a recitation room, be sure to overlook your purse or a book.
This will serve as an excuse to return to the room to see who is there.
