The Crescent —1944 EL WOO II UIOII SCHOOL. ELWOOII. I.MIIA.WAMERICA At this time our great country is at war We have fought for more than two years, and many lives have been lost. Though through the rest of this book nothing is mentioned of war, we haven't forgotten it; each write up and picture signifies it. Until the blessed day of peace arrives, let us all pray for it.DEDICATION To the student body, we dedicate this book To the students who make up each class, who participate in all activities, and who work to keep up morale, standards, and attendance, we offer this tribute. This book is built around you, and for you.This scene represents the friendliness and co-operation of Ehvood High School students.Service Men BOVS FROM CLASS OF ’44 IX SERVICE Roy Hutcheson, Jr. Elmer Wiegert Robert Grant Davis Edward Moschell Graduates of Elwood High School killed in action: Harlan Moore Eugene Bricker Parke Moore Probably before the Crescent conies out there will be. other boys from the classes that have left for service. Unfortunately since we didn’t know who they would be, we couldn't include their names; but to all the boys who go, we pay tribute, and wish them lots of luck. We can all feel assured of the final outcome of the war when we stop to realize just what kind of boys make up our soldiers. Boys all over the country are the same as the boys from our school—loyal, ready to win, and confident. They have proven to us they hold these qualities by their participation in athletics, school government, and general attitude.We like our teachers in Elwood High. There seems to he a friendly understanding between the students and teachers. Our teachers are represented here bv Miss Whitesell, Mr. Ashton, Miss Grosswege, and Mr. Baker.SCHOOL OFFICIALS John E.

SENIOR CLASS This year's graduating class holds many superior qualities. They were the first to do many things, and what they did was done well. Many of the members have been lost to the Armed Forces, but in spite of that their enrollment still stands at 107. In future years we expect big things from many members of this class.Class of 1044 FRANK ADAMS JUANITA ALBRIGHT ERNEST ALEXANDER RICHARD BAN NON CAT HER IN A BAUBY WILLIAM BERRY DOLORESBLANKENSHIP LEO BOYER CATHERINE BRANDON PETTY BURTON .

When saying it. it doesn't sound like such a long time, but remembering hack over the years a lot has happened.—Xow. in our Senior year, we seem to be good friends, to have a mutual feeling which has been obtained by our contacts with ono another. It seems rather funny remembering Bud Moschell as the fat. awkward boy of our freshman year, compared with the good-looking, smooth boy of the senior year.—And who could ever forget the constant trouble which went on between the Jinx Sub-Deb Club and the U. F. H.. all wasted effort really, since now they're combined into the Q. B. Q.!—doesn't it seem like a miracle when you realize “Gabby” Wesseler has talked at the same speed for four years and still hasn’t run out! Our sophomore year was the first year our boys began to show what they had in the field of athletics; everyone was surprised and hopeful and the boys didn’t let them down! This year was also our first year to organize; Lyle Clapper was our president. Isn’t it amazing when you stop to think liow Delores Blankenship has kept her record for scholary achievements? Who could forget our junior year, when the “St. Joe" students came in our midst, to add to our class in achievement and ability? That was the year Fettig and Justice began their long era of "steady." Through these years the tide gradually changed from the female crave for older boys to the realization of what their class held for them along the line of men! The junior year brought another election, with Clapper still as president. Then came the big year, our senior year, with “John” Green leading in excitement for the new "find.” After that had calmed down. Dick Bannon proved to be the next victim; we all saw Sonja Henie this year also; and were there any of us who didn’t feel important because we had inherited the middle section of the auditorium ? Incidentally, Clapper was also our Senior president! Most of us began to realize that we were almost through school and we started to make plans for our future. Speaking of the future, it should be a safe job for anyone who would like to make campaigning for Clapper for Mayor his vocation!JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS. Mike Justus, President; Mary Frances Robertson, Vice President; Basil Blackburn, Treasurer; Sarah Alice Dudley, Secretary. JUNIORS The juniors have passed their two years of being underclassmen. In fact they have nearly caught up with the seniors. When the seniors move out this spring the halls will be waiting for these juniors in their dirty red cords and shirts to take over. We are sure they will make good—so more power to them and the best of luck!Class of 1!)45 Anna Acres Waiter Anglemeyer Lula Ballard Joyce Balser Ralph Beber Clara Beck .

They are a loyal class and have a good spirit—They should go far. FRESHMAN Freshies have always been ribbed and this class is no exception to the rule! But we do admire their sportsmanship and loyalty to their school.Class of 1940 erna Jean Adair Vaughn Alexander Pamela Auxter Janies Babbitt Gerald i n e Baldwin Jeanette Ballard Mary Ballinger Joanne Bozell Ruth Bradley Billy Brunnemer Howard Bull Marjorie Cain Jean Cloud Jack Cole Rosemary Collins Marion Commons Gene Conwell Max Corbett Robert Courtney Robert Daugherty Lucille Davies Beatrice Davis Robert 1 Dean Tames Demos Lloyd Diehl Carl Dillen Jacqueline Elliott Wayne T.Ilyson Harold Elzey Daniel Evans Beverly Fisher Richard Fox Lenora Franklin Robert Hartley Ramona Gardner Ted Gardner Wilbern Gillam Xedra Gray James Green Barbara Gross Donald Guard Frank Hancock Frederick Hartley Florence Ellen Hiatt Hubert Hook Nellie Hughes Joan Wuntsinger Liudall Jarret Billy Johns Carrel Jones Marilyn Jones James Juday Melvin Kleyla Doris McMinn Emmagene Knotts Charles Leaky Billy Leavell Kathryn Leeson Mary Legg Richard Leisure Robert Lillyrrj Jerome Loser Theresa Lytle Ralph Maley James Mays Robert Mettlen Eugene Miller James Miller Ray Miller Louis Moschell Marilyn McCorkle Herbert McFall Joan McGill Eleanor McWilliams Richard Lewis Patricia McIntosh Jeannine McIntosh Rosemary O'Haver Wilberta Xaden Rebecca (Irbatigh Doneta Ozenbaugh Lois Pennington Leatlia Phillips Mary Pierce Charlene Pollock Donna Lee Price Christal Quick Phyllis Quick Eudora Reichart James Rich Xolan Rittenhouse Max Robertson Dennis Robinson Thomas Rood Floyd Schimmcl Robert Scircle Herman Scott 1 Jillie Lou Silvey Carolyn Sparling Joyce Spitzmesser Xorma Statu Alma Stockdale Joyce Stone Sharlene Strangeway Phyllis Summers Phyllis Tharp Mary Tomlinson Clarence Van Horn Steele Vest Eugene Vinson Dan Walsh Edward Way mi re George Webb Roland Webb William Whisler Mable Whitenack Edward Williams Onda Wilson Mary Ellen Wire Wilbert Wise Dwight Wittkamper Eugene WoodClass of 1047 Clias.

It would take a page and even more to tell of all the achievements, and all of the good she did while on this earth.

From occasional appearances. it has developed a flair for being present at any and all times, focusing the attention of the town and school upon its highly interesting activities. Part of its attraction comes from the uniformed band. This band came from 32 members to 74 members during the past 3 years. It makes its appearance at every football and basketball game; it participates in the work of the cheering section; and it represents the school in parades and public functions. To uniform this ever growing group, a loyal, civic minded person, O. X. Hesler, underwrote the contract for $2000.00 necessary. Many other parents, patrons, and citizens helped also. The FI wood High School Band will now endeavor to give its best to its community. As part of their attempt to show their gratitude the band presents three concerts each year for the music lovers of Elwood. At the winter concert this year they added the pleasure of a trombone soloist from the U. S. Marine Band, Musician Dale L. Harf-bon. To the student body they brought again Dr. Otto Schact for his third successive year. Such contributions to the community and school are possible only because the Music Department is now functioning as a well organized department. The change is due to the merit system by which students participating may develop their initiative, and musical abilites. The merit system is a way by which their efforts are rewarded, and at the end of their school career they are given awards for their efforts. Elwood High should be proud of their band and should pay tribute to them. They have helped bring enjoyment and achievement to our school.Twirlers Carolyn Sparling Gloria Gilmore.

So all we can do is humbly thank you Mr. Johnson, Mr. Bridges, and all of you boys who have put forth so much hard effort. You deserve a lot of praise.COACHES Mr. Johnson, Mr. Bridges MANAGERS Gene Conard, Russell Courtney, Floyd Hastetter. YELL LEADERS Beatrice Kane. Ann Martin Jane Fettig COACHES Elwood High School was very fortunate this year in having the services of two very capable men, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Bridges. Mr. Johnson has been our head coach for two years now, and has made excellent progress in our athletic program during this time. He has drilled some of the finest E. H. S. has ever had. Mr. Johnson has the good will of the boys and is well liked by all the students. We wish him all the success in the world in his future years of coaching. Assisting Mr. Johnson is Mr. Bridges. He is a very dependable and sincere man. He has showed his coaching ability in directing the team during the absence of Mr. Johnson. We hope Mr. Bridges enjoys coaching as much as we enjoy him as a coach.Football This year's edition of the Elwood Panther football team was one of the scrappiest ever to don the regalia of E. H. S. They were hard fighters and never knew the meaning of the word “quit." The team ended the season with a record of four wins, two losses, and two ties. The defeats, however, were given Elwood by two of the few teams that were undefeated throughout the season. This year’s team also shared honors with Warsaw as the C.I.C. Champions. Two of this team were named all-conference and one all-state. The 1944 Crescent salutes the football team of the 1943 season.

He developed into one of the best defensive ends E.H.S. has ever known. He will be back next year. End-—Rod Shaw—Junior Rod was a newcomer to the squad, but played a very dependable football. He was switched to tackle in the last game, and played very well.. End—Bon Justice—Senior Bob was the one that was on the receiving end of many of Lambert's touchdown passes. We hate to lose Bob. Tackle—Mike J ustus—Junior Mike was a hard working, hard driving tackle. He did bully work in that line. If the armed forces don’t grab him, we expect great things from him next year. Tackle—Elmer Ewing—Senior Elmer was the man-mountain of the team. He was always in there scrapping and was the bulwark of our line. We're sorry he won’t be back next year. Tackle—Dick Gregg—J unior Dick is one of the very good dependable subs. He is an excellent scrapper and likes to play. He’ll be back next year. G uard—Bob McGill—J unior Bob was one of Elwood’s small guards, but was tough. He always tried his best, which is really what counts. Guard—Dana Hocker—Junior Dana was the second of the two Elwood pony guards. He did outstanding work in the Anderson game and was always in there pitching. Guard—Milton Gough—Senior Although, this was his first year of football. Milt did very well. He was always ready to go. Center—Bun Moschell—Senior "Bud” was the man that got those tackles, for he backed up the line. He did a good job and we regret that he has to leave. Back—Dick Bannon—Senior Dick was little but mighty. He blocked and tackled like a 200 pounder. Sorry to see him go. Back—Howard Martz—Junior Howard was the speed demon of the team. He was a hard driver and always a scrapper. His stiff arm was tough. He’ll be back next year. Back—Jim Bill Hook—Senior Jim was a very good blocker and tackier. He also did most of the kicking. The best of luck, ‘‘Jim Bill.” Back—‘‘Pig” Lambert—Captain, All Conference, All State— Senior Pig was the backbone of our team. He was excellent passer, kicker, and runner. We hate to lose him.Basketball This year’s edition of the Elwood Panthers didn’t have such a good record, but this doesn’t mean they weren’t good. They were hampered by injuries and tough luck all year. The team was composed of veterans of last year’s squad, but the reserve power—well there just wasn’t any. But nevertheless the team was good and never gave up. We salute the Elwood Basketball players of 1943-44. Varsity First Row: Courtney. Second Row: Hook, Justus, Lambert, Gregg, Justice. Third Row: Bannon, Shaw, Coach Johnson, Hook. Beeman. "II” Team First Row: Vinson, Davis, Hartley, Hook, Beeman, Courtney. Second Row: Morgan, Williams, Tranbarger, Dean, Bollinger, Merritt. Third Row: Trick, Jordan, Bridges (coach), Beck, Wise.Basketball Squad Forward—“Pig” Lambert—Capt. I’ig is a veteran of last year’s team and was then high scorer. He’s helped us win and we only wish he could he with us next year. Good luck, “Pig.” Forward—Mike “Butch” Justus “Butch” is a good defense man and plays a fine pivot position. He was good last year, better this year, and there’s still one man year to look forward to. Forward—“Rod" Siiavv Rod is one of those hard working subs and is always ready to go in the game, when he’s needed. He’ll be on our first five next time basketball season rolls around. Center—Dick Gregg Havin’ a bad knee doesn’t bother Mr. Gregg; he plays a fine game of basketball anyway. E.H.S. expects great things from him next year. Guard—Jim Bill Hook Another good defense man with speed as his middle name. We’ll he sorry to see him leave as he can really handle a basketball. Guard—Bob Justice An all around good player who thrills us with those long shots. He’s always there when the going gets tough. This is Bob’s last year at High School basketball. Guard—Dick Bannon A newcomer to our basketball team, but a good man to have around in tight spot, especially on the defense. This is Dick’s last year. Basketball Scores E.H.S.

The greatest point getters of last year’s team were: Howard Lambert, shotputter; Jack McQuinn, dashman; David Locke, dashman; Harold Evans, half-miler; Elmer Wiegcrt, dashman; Joe Braun, pole vaulter; and Locke, McQuinn, Evans, and Wiegert, who made up the mile relay team. Evans, who was the mainstay of last year’s squad, went to the state finals and captured the half-mile honors. Wiegert also went to the state, but failed to place. Wiegert and Braun are not shown in the picture because they are serving in our armed forces. We expect great things from the future trackmen of E.H.S. Track Team: Evans, Lambert, McQuinn, Locke. Ag.

Early in October our staff was organized ; then we divided into departments; Business: Russell Courtney, Bonita Warner, and Joyce Scholl. Clerical: Karla Loyd, Lenamae Wardwell, and Patricia Bowman. Literary: Donna Wardwell, Mae Myerley. Make-up: Margery Coats, Martha Boyer. Photography: William Frye, Garth Day. Art: Margery Coats and Martha Boyer. Co-Editors: Alice Elmore and Lilma Sides. We were all under the capable supervision of Miss Clara Nuzutn. First of all we tried to find out what you wanted in your book (which wasn’t hard to discover). Then we built up our program for the opening drive around these wants. After our three day drive we knew you were behind us! So we made our dummy and sent it in. After revising it only once, we thought we had an annual you would like and be satisfied with. We hope you are!This book was engraved by the Indianapolis Engraving Co. 222 East Ohio Street INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA
