During this year the name Wendell L. Willkie High School replaced the familiar E. H. S. Page Slx months old Seventeen years His Spirit Marches Un What prophet among us could have foreseen some forty odd years ago that here in Elwood was beginning a brilliant career which was destined to know no national boundaries nor to recognize any international barriers? Yet here in our very streets and parks, churches and schools was laid the foundation for a Iife's work which was to take Wendell L. Willkie far from the limits of his small, midwestern, farming community even into the far corners of the globe. ' Through Indiana University to a teacher's desk in a Kansas High School we follow the trail of our favorite son. Back to an Akron, Ohio law office his footprints lead us and from there to the firm of a corporation lawyer in New York City. Next we stand with him at the nominating convention of 1940 in Chicago and watch and listen as he leads us through a vigorous presidential campaign across the nation. Even defeat for the highest elective office in the land could not dampen his indomitable spirit. We cheer when he offers full cooperation in governmental matters and in the war effort. We fly with him on a 'round the world trip during which he walks with kings and eats with the common man. We read his thoughts, his warnings, and his dreams in ONE WORLD. Humanly speaking, WiIIkie's trodden path comes to an end in a cemetery near Rushville in his native Hoosier State. Here the personal side of the humble world leader rests. But men like Willkie never die. They live forever in the hearts of all who knew them. Their ideals are passed on from generation to generation. These heroes, become more respected in death than in life. Memory of them comes to be eternally enshrined in memorials and monuments throughout the world. In keeping with the spirit of remembrance, our schools have been official- ly renamed the Wendell L. Willkie Junior and Senior High Schools. Tributes of this kind bear little weight, however, in perpetuating the undefeatable courage of Wendell L. Willkie. History and time alone will inscribe in the lasting record his true worth. Already his spirit was present at the council tables of Dumbarton Oaks. lt has again been felt at the council tables at San Francisco. It will again be harkened unto in the coming peace con- ferences when the guns of this war will be forever silenc- ed. His spirit willlnot be pushed aside. It will stop only when all nationsf clasp hands in a friendly and peaceful ONE WORLD. wfourlsry of Mrs, Frrznlr Willlril' Second row: Wendell Willkie is second from the --Vuurlscy ofEdg1r1r li. Hull right, Edgar Ball is second from the left PRESI DENT'S TRIBUTE "The nation will long remember Wendell Willkie a. a forthright American. Earnest, honest, wholesouled, he also had tremendous courage. This courage-which was his dominating trait-'prompted him more than once to stand alone and to challenge the wisdom of counsels taken by powerful interests within his own party. In this hour of grave crisis the country loses a great citizen through his untimely passing." LEditor's Note: This tribute is published with the permission of the late President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and was sent to The Crescent directly from the White House, Washington, D. C.l .s..g..-. He grew to manhood from an humble birth, Through boyhood days he walked the common way, Building a life of sterling worth As on he toiled through each weary day. Building, ever building, Reaching for that star Of high ideals for all mankind He had visioned from afar. A statesman, great among the great, Noble of soul and mindg Striving to bring unity, Freedom, and peace to all mankind. Great though he was, he loved to walk The path with the common man -f To talk with him, be friends, with him According to God's plan. God rest you, Wendell Willkiel You've fought a noble fight, Holding high the banners Of a cause you knew was right. You were sent a while to help us To face reality, A noble soul from ageless realms Of immortality. Orville Bowers Page Seven Page Eight The American Way of Life "The American Way of Life." These five words mean something different to each and every one of us. To most of us the meaning takes the form of a tangible reality such as the coke at the Sweet Shoppe, a ride in the country, or trip to visit friends. No matter what it means to you, there is one basic word in this philosophy of life that includes all- FREEDOM. Freedom is not an abstract quality, but an intimate part of our life. lt is the church we attend, the books we read, the vote we cast. lt is ours to hold and to defend. It was the word freedom that set the course of the seventeenth-century sail boats towards the West. This freedom was handed down to us through the tears, laughter, and speeches of our forefathers. Patrick Henry was aware of the full force of the meaning of liberty and many others followed him in his cry for liberty. This element is ever present in our songs, nature, and even our breath of life. Let us remember that this freedom is created in sunlit streets of America, in children's play, in the sound of church bells, and in the right to stand up and speak the truth as we see it. Someday we hope that people all over the world will know the meaning and strength of freedom. Americans, take up the torch of Freedom today, light this darkened world, and make it a better world for tomorrow. Mr. Zeiger Miss House Miss Helmbock Page Nine ADMINISTRATION ni, C. C. Hlllls, A.

And the answer is, "Serving in the armed forces of their country." Stop and think. Does this mean something to you to have a friend fighting for you or do you take it as "just one of those things of life?" No one really and truly wants to fight, but when called upon to serve his country, he willingly answers the call. He faces dangers many of us refuse to think about. Why this willingness to sacrifice? Here is the answer. These friends of ours believe in "The AmericanWay of Life" and the ideals it stands for. They believe in it so whole-heartedly that they will die for it if necessary. Our fighting men are carrying out this doctrine on every battlefield in all parts of the world. They do not stop to ask questions such as these: "From whom were you descended? What are your politics? Your religion? Your general beliefs?" Instead of de- bating on these questions, they stand united in one cause-to make a better world for future generations. Willkie High School graduates are joined in this struggle for a free world. In nearly every corner of the globe touched by the cursed con- flict, our former students are sharing their everything for us. Many of the boys with whom we joked, studied, and played only yesterday have today made the supreme sacrifice. Continually this roll of honor grows. Daily more stars are added to Elwood windows. In this spirit the Class of '45 has given its full share of boys to the cause of liberty and freedom everywhere. There will be many vacant chairs at Commencement this year. Anything we could say becomes mere idle words as we attempt to honor our boys of this year and former years. The American language does not contain suitable words for such tribute. Recognizing our short comings, therefore, we sincerely and reverently devote this page to our service men and women wherever they may be. May your efforts be not in vain. May your hopes and ambitions be realized in bringing about a truly ideal One World.

Missing from the picture is Shirley King, President. Four years--that seemed like a long time, practically an eternity, when it lay before us, but now it is like a dream. From the first, we never experienced a dull moment. During our freshmen year we had our usual round of parties and in addition to our social life, representatives of our class helped in the writing of the Student Council Constitution. As sophomores, we organized under the leadership of Jack Squier. We became business people that year by taking over the concessions at basketball games. Our junior year was a very successful one with Mike Justus as our President. ln early spring we presented the play, "Laff That Off." Later, we gave the first Junior-Senior Prom., "The Apple Blossom Ball." We worked very hard decorating the new gym, but the beautiful result and evening's enjoyment were well worth the effort. We also enjoyed a skating party and believe it or not, there were no broken bonesl Now, it doesn't seem possible that we are seniors. It is our turn now to confuse underclassmen and initiate freshmen. Yes, we have had many good times. Remember how silly we all looked and acted at the Sadie Hawkins' Party? More of us will probably remember the impressive "Rhapsody In Blue", and who will ever forget the play? "Here Comes Charlie" was one of the best received plays ever presented. Much of the credit for the success of this year goes to Shirley King, President. However, we can not enjoy the fruits of success without the hard work and co-operation of the mem- bers of the class. We have had just this and the members of our class have also worked with equa' zest in other activities of high school. With Senior week and graduation just around the corner, we can look back and be sorry that we are parting. Many of us will go the to armed forces, others will go to college: but wherever we are, we will always remember our days at high school and with the hope that we have left it a better school for our having been there.

Which means we are upperclassmen at long lastwsomething we have dreamed about since our freshman year. Since then, too, we have all given our best to uphold the standards of our school. We cannot say it has been easy, but we can say it has been well worth it. We have done well as individuals-and as freshmen that is mostly the way we did things. Then came our sophomore year. We were given the right to organize and to elect officers. We chose officers who very ably represented our class to the rest of the school. Beverly Fisher was our Presi- dent. Our sophomore year was a memorable one for it was that year we learned the meaning of co-operation: of the phrase "united we stand." This year, our junior year, we chose to follow James "Spud" Mays. We are all grateful for the fine leadership of our well chosen sponsors. Our dances, parties, and other social functions always proved very successful. The juniors are well represented on the Crescent, the Megaphone, Debate, and all other school activities. Never has a six weeks passed without some junior names on the honor roll. Nor have all our achievements been scholastic. We have faired well in athletics-football, track- -and who made up the basket- ball team this year? Four juniors played practically every game. The junior play "Gabriel Blow Your Horn" was a huge success. Later the cast formed The Dramatic Club, a thing that our school has not had for many years. Yes, our junior year has been something we can be justly proud of. But perhaps the best thing of all is the fact that we still have another year to add to our record. Let's hope it will be as success- ful as the past years.

Because it is the oldest experiment in Democratic Government now existing, we come to believe that what has been, will always be. This is blind un- reasonable faithl Important as faith is, faith alone cannot keep democracy living. Our form of government is most vulnerable. It is constantly open to attack-forever fighting for survival. However much we may wish this struggle did not exist, it is unavoidable-one of the necessary evils of Constitutional Democracy. I would like for you to think with me for a while about the enemies of democracy. There are three types-the enemy from without, the one in our midst, and the enemy in our own hearts. The enemies from without are those forms of govern ment that are not democratic and which are conducted in a manner unlike our own. Three such forms of govern ment are known as Monarchies, Totalitarian states, and Communism. All three have been notorious in their opposition to democracy because their principles and our principles do not coincide. Each has WANIDA WALKER felt, at different times, that democracy could not exist in a world with- in itself and they have tried to stamp it out. In the American Revolution we fought the soldiers of a monarch in order to gain our independence. Shortly thereafter, the French followed our example. In modern times we have the monarchy of Japan, who really has a combination of a holy emperor and a military dictator. The Japanese hate democracy, they hate us because under our Constitutional Democracy we have become the most powerful people in the world. We are fighting with them now to see which form of government will survive. THE JAP DIES FOR HIROHITO, BUT THE AMERICAN BOY DIES FOR THE PRESERVA- TION OF FREEDOM THAT OUR CONSTITUTION HAS RECORDED AND THEREIN LIES THE BASIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A VASAL AND A FREE MAN-BETWEEN THE SERF ON BENDED KNEES inlilzgll-'LEJMAN WHO CAN STAND UPRIGHT AND LOOK SQUARELY INTO THE EYES OF ALL Dictators are just as bitter as monarchs in their enmity. Hitler has made it only too clear in "Mein Kampf" and other utterances that democracy must go out of existance. Mussolini has echoed his master's sentiments. Why do dictators despise us? Because our privileges and their total regimentation are at opposite poles. Under our principles the rights of every individual citizen are supreme. Under theirs the Fuhrer and the state are supreme. Their homes, churches, schools, industry, and everything are subversive to one leader. Totalitarian states can thrive only upon slavery, but democracy is nourished upon freedom. The second enemy is the one in our midst. He may take one of many forms. He may be a sabo- teur, trained in the process of espionage and who by physical means tries to handicap our wareffort or, by more subtle devises, tries to undermine morale. Or he may profess to be a citizen while aid- ing the enemy in some way. Such a person is a traitor and 3 Spy, and when apprehended he can receive the most severe punishment man can give.

Wise foolsMthat's the meaning of Sophomores, but we would rather be wise fools than green freshies again. Being a Soph has its advantages, though, for we no longer get those awful stares from the Seniors and we can do our "good little deeds" for the new freshman. We also have a priori- ty on the seats under the balcony--no more upstairs for us. The Class of '47 functions smoothly under the leadership of Katherine Fetz. We are well rep- resented in sports, scholarship, and other activities. In fact we have in our midst the only student who holds the gold award for scholastic ability. I guess we're trying to live up to the part about being wise. The best part about being a Sophomore is that the next year we will be Juniors, upperclassmen the year in which we give our first play, our first prom, and will be envied by the new Sophomores. Yes, our daydreams will soon come true and we will be out of the "awkward age."

STUDENT COUNCIL A new sponsor, Miss Digel, together with a new group of student representatives, did a splendil job this past year in Student Council. One of the most important things the Council did was to get the Panther Den started. They can be congratulated for the fine work they did. The Council also has kept the Service Board up to date and has added one gold star to our Ser- vice Flag. Still another thing accomplished this year was a discussion of the Honorary Society and the completion of some further details pertaining to that organization. The most important job of all came with the preparation for Award Day, which was started in Willkie High School in 1944. On this day each year all those receiving awards of any kind are honor- ed. The Student Council hopes to make this event a yearly tradition of the high school. The members of the Student Council are as follows: Marjorie Bohlander, Dorothy Merritt, Shirley King, Joyce Scholl, Frederick Hartley, James Babbitt, Richard Fox, Ralph Maley, Perry Mangas, Don Green, Margaret Bohlander, Marjorie Waymire, Louise Bell, Victor Seright, Gloria Gilmore, Alyce Kaye Hughes, Joan Stone, James Mays, Eugene Vinson, Virginia Haynes, and Jack Parker. lEd. note Owing to an accidental exposure over which the staff had no control, it is impossible for us to present the Student Council picture here.J Page Fifty PROGRAM COMMITTEE Thursday activity periods are reserved for assembly programs. Only a small percentage of these are staged by school organizations and students, the remainder are planned by the high school Pro- gram Committee which at various intervals during the year gives students a taste of outstanding talent and personalities. F- remost among these renowned individuals who have appeared this year was Holmer Chaillaux representing the American Legion and who dramatically showed us what citizenship really is. An- other enjoyable period was presented by George Davis of Purdue University whose fine art was read- ing and personifying the poetry of James Whitcomb Riley. Newsman, humorist, and philosopher "Dusty" Miller returned this fall and held us spellbound by one of those addresses for which he is always welcome at W. H. S. Nelson Covey's first hand ac- counts of a life that refound itself climaxed the auditorium card. Members of our student body are formulating a program for VE Day. Plans are now being made in advance to lessen the confusion when that day arrives. The group is working and co-operating with other organizations throughout the city. Standing Qleft to rightb-Gloria Glimore, James Babbitt, Joyce Scholl. Seated-Mr. Davis, Mrs. Records, Mr. House. Page Fifty-one STAMP COMMITTEE As every student knows, Tuesday is Stamp Day in Willkie High School. You hand your money to your home room representative and think nothing more about it until the stamps are handed back to you. But what goes on behind the scenes? Stamps and bonds must be purchased, records kept, and percentages figured. It's not an easy job. The committee, under the leadership of Mr. Forney, I.:'s done much to boost the sale of war bonds and stamps in W. H. S. Top row wleft to rightl- Doneta Ozenbaugh, Mr. Forney, Marjorie Bohlander.

Their duties are to help students find books, check out books, and put away books at the end of each period. Miss Allen requests that the members know the shelf numbers so that books may be put away quickly. The assistants agree that it is not hard work but a lot of fun.

DEBATE Undoubtedly you have heard some heated discussions on the topic "Resolved that the legal voting age should be lowered to eighteen years." This is the National Question for debate throughout the United States. Of course, there are two sides to every question, the affirmative and the negative. On the A team Qaffirmativeb are Shirley King and Thursa Beavers. On the A team inegativei are Kay Cotton, Pamela Auxter, Florence Hiatt, and Ray Miller. All other members make up the B team. Mr. Brown is the advisor of this organization and handles it very capably as this year's meets have shown. In inter-school competition, Elwood had Fairmount here for debate and a banquet. We then iourneyed to Rushville to an invitational debate tournament where we lost two and won two. Marion was the next invitational meet. The affirmative won their debates here. On Saturday, March 10, the District Debate Tournament was held at Marion. The different schools entered were Marion, Peru, Wabash, Sharpsville, Fairmount, and Elwood. Elwood represents the Fifth Congressional District. We tied Marion, each having won four debates. Elwood now had excellent chances of winning the State Tournament which was to be held at North Manchester. However, because of lack of transportation, our team had to forfeit our debate. To be eligible for an award, one must participate in an elimination contest. There are gold pins for the seniors and silver pins for underclassmen. A reward for all is the celebration of the year's achievements. A secretary is their only officer. Kay Cotton holds this honor for 1945. The Debaters maintain their organization by publishing basketball programs. Money is obtain- ed from the merchants' ads in these programs. Elwood is a member of the Indiana High School Debating League which enables them to partic- ipate in sectionals, regionals, and other debates. Mr. Brown states that there have been an extra large number of pupils interested in Debate this year. We hope the future Debaters have as much success as they have had this year. Page Fifty-three NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY This organization, composed entirely of seniors, is selected by the faculty from the upper fifteen per cent of the class. They are chosen not only for their scholar- ship, but also for citizenship and all around desirable qualities. Standing--Richard Sacksteder, Paul Sloan.

SEMESTER HONOR ROLL The semester honor roll is made up of those having a semester average of not less than four A's. We are proud to have such a fine group in our high school. Page Fifty-four SUNSHINE SOCIETY Perhaps one of the ablest organizations in our school-and certainly one that has been doing some fine workfis the Sunshine Society. The Society is established for girls of high school age in many communities throughout the nation. Their goal is to help poor people, bring sunshine and good cheer to the less fortunate, and to share their happiness with others. The Elwood Chapter was organized in September of 1943. On several occasions our girls have sponsored candy sales, the profits of which go to the Riley Hospital in Indianapolis. They have also crfrrierl out other projects to help the needy and the ill, especially at Christmas time. The members have elected officers and meetings are held semi-monthly. The officers of our chapter are: President, Phyllis Summers, Vice-President, Norma Stam, Secretary, Doneta Ozen- baughg Treasurer, Mable Whitenack. Tom rmzv lleft to right?

TRAYS AND BUCKETS CLUB Pop corn, ice cream, soft drinksl What would we do without them at a basketball game? If it hadn't been for the Class of '45, we would have been minus refreshments at the games. Two years ago the upperclassmen decided they did not want this job, so when offered to tho sophomores, they accepted. We are glad now that such a fine group of students took over. As juniors they really went to town. At the end of the season, this group organized and became an all school activity. They set up a constitution and decided upon the name of Trays and Buckets. This group not only served at ball games but did other things, such as buy trellis for the school for use at dances. This year they are taking care of the coke bar at the Panther Den two nights a week. The officers for the past two years are: General Chairman, Paul Sloang Chairman of Supplies, Patricia Bowman, Chairman of Sellers, Martha Mort, Chairman of Equipment, Walter Franklin, and Secretary, Margery Coats. For the past year, Sarah Alice Dudley has been C 1 rm un of Panther Den coke bar, and Miss Swengel has been the sponsor. Page Fifty-six PROJECTION CLUB Whenever Willkie High students enjoy a film or the public address system is used for a program you can bet that this was possible because of the Projection Club. We do not realize all the work it has taken to prepare the equipment. Mr. Waymire has done an excellent job training these stu- dents to be operators. Let's give them a hand.

USHERS Those attractively "sweatered" boys who stretch the ropes around our gym floor at basketball games and other athletic events are members of The Ushers Club. Protecting our playing court, however, is merely one of the many tasks of this group whose chief duty is to direct spectators to their correct seats and to handle auditorium crowds. Page Fifty-seven THE MEGAPHONE STAFF 1945-year of achievementl Certainly this is true with regard to the Megaphone, our school newspaper. And that's just what it has been this year. Several changes have been made, the most important being the change from a mimeographed paper to a regular printed type. The mimeo- graphed type had been used for the past four years. Advertisements have also taken their place in the columns of the Megaphone. All these achievements have been made possible through the very capable supervision of Miss Allen and Miss Barnes, the sponsors. The Staff also deserves a great deal of recognition for the faith- ful way in which they have performed their duties this past year. The Staff is made up of: Editor ,,,, ,,.. . ..

"Gabriel, Blow Your Horn" was a huge success. lt was every junior's dream come true. So many girls tried out for the play that a double cast was chosen. By giving the play four times, each girl was able to appear twice. The play was a three act comedy which told the story of the troubles of three South Carolina mountaineers-Gabriel Pennington, Zerusia, his wife, and Daisy May, their daughter. The audience was kept laughing from beginning to end by these three and their utter bewilderment when they were invaded by the "city folks" for whom they were caretakers. The "city folks" included Miss Thelma, owner of the cottage, Janet, her niece, and a party of house guests. Also involved in the general mis- understanding were Herbert Brown and his son, Herbert Jr. Yes-there was romance, two to be exact. One was of the long lost lover type, the other, the eternal triangle of which one of the guests, Harold, was a perfect third party. "AIl's wel! that ends well" and the play did just that. A great deal of credit and thanks goes to T. B. Lindley for his very able direction of this play. Without his contribution the play would not have been the success that it was.

Sounds of much talking fall on my ear. "She said," "he said," and words like that Were all I could hear from where I sat. Everyone's excited about the dance Formals, flowers, and, of course, ROMANCE 'Twas quite beautiful, it is true For it turned out to be "Rhapsody In Blue." Yes, the Senior Prom was a success but only because of much planning and hard work of the committes. But on the evening of January 19th, the Panther Den, decked out in blue, was ready for the occasion. Bob Connors and his Orchestra journeyed from Wabash, Indiana, to provide our musical background. During the evening Wilberta Naden and Florence Ellen Hiatt played a duet arrangement of Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue." However, like in the story of Cinderella, the en- chantment ended at twelve. Page Sixty-om' Juvenile delinquency? A little, maybe, but you can bet your last pair of bobby sox that it won't be a serious problem now that we've found the answer. "Panther Den"f-that's our solution and our challenge to any community in the United States that moans about the bad boys and girls milling in its streets. Students, faculty, and townsfolk alike combined to bring us a model recreation center. Finally, after weeks of impatient waiting, we could harldy believe our eyes when we flocked into the completed project for the first time. How that "old gym" was changed!! Words can't describe the beauty of the newly painted walls and matching drapes, the galaxy of United Nations flags along the south wall, the new padded booths and other furniture all around W-'not to mention the spectacular "coke bar." And the lounge? Perfectly superefireplace and all. Now each Tuesday and Saturday nights members of the "Den" gather to chat, dance, shoot a game of pool, try a hand at ping pong, play any one of hundreds of new, games, or merely to meet and talk things over. Best of all, this form of entertainment can be enjoyed here all summer. Yes, there may be other youth centers and kid kanteens, but there's only one "Panther Den." Page Sixty- two THE SWI NGSTERS We can make auf: dudfionef' mic Page Sixty-three MUSIC HISTORY Back in 1921 the Band was organized with Bob Birt as director. Mr. Cole replaced Mr. Birt in 1937, and in 1938 Lesley Gilkey took over Mr. Watkins' place as director of music. At that time effort was concentrated on symphony work with a small band of 38 members. An Acappella Choir broad- cast from Indianapolis proved to be the outstanding achievement of that era. Then came the revolutionl In 1941, L. Rush Hughes took over. New Horns, new music, and a remodeled music room started us on our next key. As a result, we now have a High School Band of 75 members, a High School Boys' and Girls' Glee Club, and an Acappella Choir. Rhythm and Tonette Bands have been started in the grade schools. Shirley Whitesell Smith now supplements the vocal work and during the past year has won much acclaim with her Acappella group. Under the leadership of Mr. Hughes, the Glee Clubs have presented several minstrels complete with black face, jazz bands, and straw hats. Since 1941, moreover, two dance bands-The Overtones and the Swingsters by name-have sprung up. During this time, also, the entire Music Department has been placed under a merit system which has been tried and not found wanting. Student directors, captains, and their officers- chosen by us personally give us the feeling that the musical organizations are really our own. No longer are these groups formal, cold, and lifeless. -1944-45- DALE HARPHAN Appearing too late in the season to make last years' Crescent but worthy of more than mere honorable mention was Dale Harphan, former pupil of Mr. Hughes. Now a member of the United States Marine Band, Dale presented a program before the student body on January 9, 1944. He is one of three trombonists in the WORLD who can play four tones on the instrument at one time. sBAND ACTIVITIES! Highlighting the current year in band music, Willkie High School took part in the Central 'A- Southern Indiana Band and Orchestra Contest held at Terre Haute. In this contest we distinguished ourselves by coming home with five first-place honors, five second-place awards, and one third- place win. Something new in the line of merit acclaim was bestowed upon our Band this spring when it became the only high school band to present entertainment programs to service veterans in various army hospitals throughout the state. Sponsored by the local Elks as their part of a state-wide Elk "war effort" movement, this musical series will be continued through the summer months and wil take us to a return engagement at Camp Atterbury, Ft. Billings, the Veterans' Hospital at Marion, and other places to be determined. ln writing up the first visit of the group to Camp Atterbury, newspapers stated that this had been the first time that entertainers had consented to present a program to last longer than the original schedule had called for. The press also commented that it was also the only time that the entire audience had remained at an entertainment there until the last number had been presented. This season the Band marched and worked up formations on both the football field and the basketball floor. Between halves of the Tipton game, which came just before Christmas vacation, the entire band of 75 members formed a huge human Christmas tree, and, with lights on the cap of each member, presented a medley of Christmas carols. Three concerts were presented by the Band during the year. Each of the Sunday afternoon programs were well received by the public, and will be held annually to correspond to the three seasons Fall, Winter, and Spring. -CHORAL FESTIVAL- On Friday April 20. boys and girls from Summitville, Frankton, Pendleton, Alexandria, Markle- ville, Anderson, and Elwood assembled here to take part in the Eighth Annual Madison County Choral Festival. This was the first time we had served as host school for the occasion but compliments still continue to pour in concerning the efficient way in which every detail was handled. After each chorus had presented two vocal numbers, Guest Conductor J. R. Paxton, of Technical High School, Indianapolis, directed the Mass Chorus of 500 voices in singing "Onward Christian Soldiers," "Way Over Jordan," "Nocturne," and "The Song of the Jolly Roger."

This year the Overtones played for several dances in Anderson as well as in the Panther Den assembly programs. For several years Jack Squier, Oliver Haynes, David Locke, and Rosemary Scott had been work- ing to get such an orchestra started. In 1942 Mr. Hughes added new members and they became known as the Overtones. Each student paid so much to finance this organization. Music, stands, and other equipment were bought with this money. The personel is selected by Mr. Hughes and changes on graduation of the members. Only high school students may belong to this orchestra. The organization is now completely self supporting financially and is well past the growing pain stage. BAND OFFICERS Officers of the band are elected each year in April at the first regular band meeting. They take office on May 1st. Members of the band understand the choice is by majority vote and they must abide by the rules set up by these officers. The treasurer of the Music Department is chosen by the Director. B BAND From 1920 to 1943 the High School Band was made up of grade students, Jr. Hi and High School students. In the fall of 1943 Mr. Hughes formed a Jr Hi or B Band of students in grades from 5 to 8. ACAPPELLA CHOIR In 1943, the acappella choir, directed by Miss Whitesell, was organized with 18 members. Since this group sings unaccompanied, they must have perfect harmony of tones. This organization meets one evening a week after school and they have appeared on two programswthe Christmas chapel and an assembly program. No credits are given. BOYS GLEE CLUB The Boys Glee Club was organized in 1941. Three boys responded to the first call for members. With the co-operation of Coach Francis, Mr. Hughes was successful in getting a membership of 23. The boys have appeared in two minstrel shows and at the local Lions and Kiwanis Clubs. They have also taken part in County and State Choral Events. As yet this is a one semester course, the second semester being combined with the Girls Glee Club to form a mixed chorus. GIRLS GLEE CLUB The Girls Glee Club has been directed for the past two years by Miss Whitesell. They have sung for chapel services and various programs in the city. They have added to the success of two Min- strels. Keep up the excellent workl ORCHESTRA In sharp contrast to the typical band music-marches, college songs, etc.-come the softer and sweeter selections of the Willkie High School Orchestra. Of all our music organizations this is per- haps the oldest, having been at one time the principle mainstay of the entire department. This year the Orchestra has carried on its tradition. Not only have the members presented various programs in concerts here. but they have been in demand for providing music at various schools outside the city. Music for our own Commencement was also furnished by our Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Hughes.

FOOTBALL When the future stars of Willkie High School reported for football this fall, it was a small and aggressive squad that faced the new coach, Jim Allen. The first couple of days the workouts re- sembled a track meet more than a football practice, but as it came time for the season to open against our friends lHal Hall, the Anderson Indians, we realized how this helped and prepared us for our first taste of blood. You all remember the fateful season but here goes a bird's eye sketch of the glories and achieve- ments of WiIlkie's warriors fin other words the Panthersm. Anderson-39, Elwood -0 As the Panthers came out on the field some fans remarked that they looked like Notre Dame as the first four teams ran out and the snappy workout before the game began. The Panthers are a spunky team and though from the start it looked like an Indian victory, they fought and never gave up plugging. Few will remember that it was in this game that Hughie Hank injured his shoulder. Page Seventy-two Wabash-'40, Elwood-6 The first game on an out-of-town field and a beautiful field at that. The boys were all strung up at the beginning of the game and for the first half they didn't even resemble the team which had opposed Anderson the Monday before. At the half the score was 34A0 and things looked gloomy, but the Panthers came back the second half and played the Apaches to a 6 to 6 tie. Noblesville-49, Elwood-0 This was the first of a group of incidents which caused the fans to think of these rather than the improvement which the team made during those eight weeks of football. It was in this game that Hughie Hook broke his leg. This didn't break the boys' morale and they continued to fight all dur- ing the season. Muncie Central-70, Elwood f0 This was the only game in which we were really out-classed. Several boys showed their valor particularly in this game. There isn't much to say about this game except that both teams were the finest sportsmen and that they got along just fine. Kokomo-32, Elwood-0 Again the Panthers went to foreign soil. It wasn't the Kats that beat us but it was a pair of 6' 4" ends which caught anything in the hemisphere. Even so our line-backers did a wonderful job in holding them down as good as they did. This credit goes to Bob Courtney, "Zip" Davis, Howard Martz, and the other boys who knocked passes down all over the lot. In this game Dick Gregg lost three teeth and got the "Smile of Beauty, Use lpana" IAII comments made in this annual are not indorsed by the people that sponsor it.J Alexand ria-32, Elwood412 Alex sure knew that they had been through a meeting that night after the game. The team has really improved this season and it was in this game that they showed it. At no time were the fans sure who would win. Howard Martz made a beautiful touchdown and Bob Courtney kept the Tigers worried all evening along with "Zip" and Fred Hartley. H untington-37, Elwood-0 It was partly because of this game that "Big Moe" and Gene Vinson got mentioned on the C. I. C. team this year. Marion-19, Elwood-0 This was the final game of the season and the Panthers really did right by themselves. They hit like they never had before and looked like a first rate team. In summarizing, I would like to remind you of the vast improvement the varsity made this year. Also while giving credit where credit is due, a lot of it should go to the valiant efforts of the senior lettermen and the untiring improvements of the underclassmen. In closing I would like to submit this poem: The Panthers they had might, But the team it was light. Just watch them next year No team will they fear.

BASKETBALL From November to March our fair city along with the rest of Indiana, caught a contagious disease, Hoosier hysteria or basketball. Elwood was well represented in this epidemic with a varsity, second team, freshman outfit, junior high squad, Palmer Davis' Ag quintet, and Mr. AlIen's intra- mural boys. All did not go well in the opening weeks of the Panther varsity season, but, believe me, even Jess says he can't remember when such remarkable improvement was shown all in one year. How can we explain? Simple --and without apology too. Until the Fairmount game our varsity was made up of all juniors and sophomores. Finally Dick Gregg's leg injury healed enough to permit him to come back into the line up. Things began to change-and fastl Elwood looked exceptionally good in splitting with Tipton, and what a heartbreaker that last one was. And that photo finish of the season! Bang. Bang. Bang. Down went Peru, Burris, and Alexandria in that order. All this after Burris had beaten us on their own floor in a dead heat. But the feat that climaxed the season was our thorough cleaning of Alex in the sectional. For a team that had been beaten twice by the Tigers to come back and trim them by a margin of eight points is truly a feat of great morale and of skillful rin the basketball sensev im- provement. When one adds in, for good measure, the overtime contests, the games lost by one point, and those ended with only a one-bucket deficit iwell, you look them up, I can't bear tor, it really has been an up and coming. progressive season. For a short resume of the highlights of the battles en route, well let's look back to the gal- lant warriors who fought for us throughout the season, especially "Slugger" Beeman. Oopsl Sure let that one slip. Now take the Fairmount game for instance. Nope'. Ed Johnson took that one, didn't he? Oh well, "Life's not a bowl of cherries." Keats said that, or was it Joe Slayton. A good round of applause should be given Mr. Allen and Mr. Bridges and to their helpmzet Mr. Stuffle. But when all's said and done, its the boys themselves who build the reputation of WilIkie's teams in the future. I almost forgot the most important fellow. To Mr. Zeiger something should be given nNo, not the frying pan! for finally learning to stop the clock when we were ahead. As they say in French, "Adieu" or is it "aw foo," anyway "good bye until next year."

They must be on hand at out of town games as well as home games. It is not an easy task to to make the student body quit booing or keep them yelling, but our yell leaders have certainly done a good job. Let's give them three cheersl J ESS Jess Warner probably does more for the basketball boys than any other person except the coach. He keeps the floor in A-1 condition and also gives our boys a word of encouragement when it is most needed. I don't know what we would do without Jess for he is tops with all of us. ATHLETIC DIRECTORS Something new was added around the Athletic Department this season when Jim Allen put in his appearance as head coach and director of physical education. fAsk any of the boys about those Gym Classes. Whewlm Not exactly a newcomer to the sports world, Jim stepped via Central Normal College to Danville High School, to Hobart, and now to the beginning of a successful career here. Assisting "The Boss" this year were two work horses, Harry Bridges and Roy Stuffle. ln the hands of these two maestros was placed the destiny of the Freshman and Junior High lads. Watch us next year when their patience and efforts bear fruit.

Willkie. Wendell L. Willkie was born in Elwood, Indiana, February 18, 1892. He served as Lieutenant in the 325th Field Artillery in World War 1, retiring as Captain. The fol- lowing degrees were conferred upon him: A. B. Indiana Uni- versity C1913D, LL.B. C1916Jg LL.B. Birmingham-Southern Col- lege 119445, LL.D. Indiana University 419385, Colgate Univer- sity 11939, Dartmouth College, Yale University, Bowdoin Col- lege and Rutgers University C1941l, Union College Q1942j, Boston University and Oberlin College C1945-BD, and Sc. D. Stevens Institute C1941J. He was a member of the Bar in Indiana, Ohio, New York, U. S. District and Circuit Courts and of the U. S. Supreme Court. He practiced his profession con- tinuously in Indiana, Ohio, New York and in the Federal Courts except during his presidency of The Commonwealth Sz Southern Corporation C1933-19405. He was the Republican nominee for President in 1940. He died October 8, 1944. No better Ameri- can survives him. Wendell L. Willkie was an able, far-seeing, loyal, magnetic and courageous American, known to and respected and admired by the peoples of the earth. He attained a high place among powerful men in national and international af- fairs and all lovers of peace and freedom in this "One World" will ever revere his memory. This corporation's personnel was fortunate in hav- ing years of close contact with a professional and business leader whose counsel and ability in managing the system's operations and protecting its property rights, whose generous good fellowship with all his associates and whose consideration of the rights of employees and his especial personal regard for them, endeared him to all. He married Edith Wilk, January 14, 1918, who, with their son Philip Herman Willkie, a graduate of Princeton University and now a Lieutenant in the U. S. Navy, survives him. We condole with his widow and son in their irreparable loss which God alone can temper. Justin R. Whiting, President. E. E. Nelson, Secretary. Page Eighty-four ffm- .

SELLERS 8: SONS ' CUMPA Y SELLERS KITCHE FUR IT RE PRIZE WINNING ORATION Vonlimwcl from page 31, More dangerous to democracy than the saboteur is the otherwise well-meaning American who seeks special privileges from our govern ment at the expense of others, or who is so selfish and intoler- ant that he fans the fire of racial and religious hatredsg and it is he who believes that laws have been made to constrain the rights of others and that he is immune. It is he who thinks that in this man's world it is everyone for himself and he says, "l'm a free man so I can do as I please." Such a person has not yet learned that the privileges guaranteed in the Bills of Rights are not permits to disregard the general welfare. Finally, let us consider the third and most dangerous enemy, the one that can lurk within our- selves. lt may be termed complacency, indifference, or what you will. The American who has it is a menace to the democratic privileges he has been enjoying. It is complacency that keeps us from the polls on election day and that causes us to cash in all our war bonds to pay for non-essentials. It is indifference that permits us to accept every act of our government without question, that re- strains us from active service in our own community and causes us to believe our contributions, our blood, our aid would be unnecessary when others are giving. This last enemy is the hardest of all to defeat because it must be conquered by the individual who harbors it. We can't hang complacency and we can't send it to jail. We can only drive it from our heart with the strength of our own will. The enemy in our hearts comes to us unannounced, but once we have given it refuge, it will feed on rumor, indifference, and doubt. Like Frankenstein, it becomes our master and only a moral revolt or a spiritual awakening can make us again that true citizen of democracy. Yes, Constitutional Democracy is vulnerable. Like all other good things in this world of ours, it is hard to get and harder yet to keep, but also like good things, it is worth the struggle. It was so much better said by Thomas Paine in his famous pamphlet, "The Crisis," which was often quoted by George Washington to his men: "WHAT WE OBTAIN T00 CHEAPLY, WE ESTEEM TOO LIGHT- LY, IT IS DEARNESS ONLY THAT GIVES EVERYTHING ITS VALUE."
