These scholars shown at the right and
below are just a few of the whole stu-
dent body. Of the 550 students of our
school: a few are excellent, some are
good, the majority are average, and a
few are poor. This combination is what
constitutes our school system. Yes, the
report card is what determines our rank
at the end of each six weeks. It is not
only a record for the present, but also a
sign of how the individual may progress

The Seniors' dedication and the proms are big events that will linger in our
memories forever. The path of Aeronautics has been paved in our school by the
presentation of an AT-6 Trainer Airplane.
Then there was the Senior Prom which was every senior's dream come
true-a chance to have a formal dance all their own. The first big event for the
juniors, of course, was the lunior-Senior Prom. Who will ever forget the attrac-
tive decorations and Wonderful time we had that night? Don't you Wish that it
were all to do over?

Different things about different people are what make up the little events to
be remembered this school year. It's really a wonder that some one didn't get
hurt the way we rushed out at the close of a busy day. Little events like study-
ing were necessities, but one will always remember the hours we spent poring
over our books. Then the after-game dances provided relaxation for each of
us after a strenuous and exciting game. Little and Big events alike are what
make up our school life.

The Pep Committee
The Pep Committee is a fairly new organization in our school,
but already it has proved its value. lt has created new yells, ern-
phasized the importance of good sportsmanship to the student
body, and it has given us better, well--organized pep sessions.

functioned wonderfully well in aiding the athletic program of our

occupations as woodworking, foundry work, and metalworking.
Under the capable supervision ot Mr. House, these boys have

be proud of the fact that these boys can learn such useful trades
in our school.

The Girls Athletic Association
The Girl's Athletic Association was organized in
November, l946. The aim of this organization is to
promote interest among girls in athletic activities,
health, and sportsmanship. Membership is open to
all girls who are interested in athletic activities. We
offer seasonal sports such as, softball, tennis,
basketball, volley ball and volley ring. We also
hope to work in badminton and tumbling. After in-
structions and practice, we choose captains and
organize teams for these different games.
The G.A.A. meets on the average of two nights
a week. We went swimming several times during
the year at the "Y" pool in Anderson, and we had
a "play day" for girls from other schools to visit and
play games with us.
We have a membership of about fifty girls now
and we hope to increase the size of our organiza'
tion. We have very few business meetings because
our main idea is to learn to play the games well
and, as we all know, practice makes perfect,
Officers elected for the school year of l946-47
were: Edna Simpson, Presidentg Maraueena Kiefer,
Vice-President: lacqueline Guard, Secretary: Martha
Davies, Treasurer: and our sponsor was Miss Marian
Lalpuze, the girl's athletic director.
Mr. Keith Scott, Principal, Mr.
C. C. Hillis, Superintendent.
Back of any institution there must be some individual, some
organization, some power that makes it qo. We have steadily
plodded along the time-worn path of advancement. And who
have been our backers? Our superintendent, principal, and
faculty. Assuredly, they deserve every bit of praise that can
be qiven them.

Facts About The Faculty
We're ready to admit.
We have some lively Faculty.
From D. B. down to Harry House
We'll certainly say they're IT.
The-re's dear Mr. Bridges,
That "Sporty" fan,
Who never does get mady
Although the crowd in HR. 205
Can surely act up bad!
We respect one, Mr. Black
llfor he's so very wisell
Afraid to venture near the Lab.
For fear we'll "ionize."
Next, there's Miss PeqQfY Lee
Who is always very gay.
She guards her auto robe
That it will run away!
Miss LaFuze is a mixer!
She's just chuck full of fun.
She's crazy over basketball
But sure hates B. Leisure's gum.
The most girls are taking shorthand!
fAnd typing, if they mayl
Oh, we know what the "attraction" is
l'll just venture to say!
Coach Allen has a peppy job,
We'll say he does it neat.
He trains that winning team of ours
That seldom tastes defeat.
Miss Digel guides the Freshies dear
fYou know they are quite greenll
When she warns them to mind their P's
lt's really quite a scream!
Of the Faculty we're very fond
For all the good they do,
And though WE sometimes aggravate,
They aggravate US, too.

The Class of '48 has now reached its junior year, and very
proud of itself it is, too. Ever since this class entered Wendell
Willlcie High School, it has shown a fine school and class spirit
in everything it has done. As individuals and as a group the
present junior class has always endeavored to be helpful and
useful ciiizens of our school, and to do all in its power to uphold
the regulations which govern it. As seniors this class will, of
course, continue the good conduct and traditions which have
As the iuniors rise in the school rating it is only natural that
This year they sponsored a class
play, class parties, the prom, and other activities which were
enjoyed by many, and which gave promise of what should be
enjoyed next year when the Class of '48 will no longer he
their activities should increase.

Morning, A cold, cheerless dawn in which there is no hope or future,
Tlne misty drizzle ot rain that is talling almost obscures the view ot the
cfcsilate plain. But not altogether,
Wlna' is that that looms so ominously behind the curtain ot rain? It
beccrres clcarer now. lt is the walls ot the state prison. Solid grey stone walls
that rise bleakly from the deserted plain and seem to reach up to the dark
overcast heavens. The entire scene is one ot ccmplete, hopeless desolation.
Suddenly a shadow at the base ot the wall detaches itself from the
surrounding darkness and darts into the protecting cover ot the rain and
m:sts Surely it is imagination. No one would be roaming the plain at this
Eut it is a person, not merely an imaginary shadow outside the prison
walls, tor almost immediately the lang, drawn-out whine ot the siren cuts
thrcugh the thick, murky dusk ot dawn, A prisoner has escapedl The search
lights pierce the sheets ot rain with their long tingers. Soon the gates swing'
slowly, almost reluctantly, open, and guards pour through them, eagerly
locking tor the tugitiye,
The burly guards also disappear into the shielding curtain ot rain, Almost
too soon, it seems, they reappear dragging the recaptured convict with them
Slowly they approach the grim, foreboding walls which seem unwilling to let
cyen one poor inmate escape. As the last man disappears inside the wall, the
nassiye gate swings creakingly shut and closes with a tinal desolate clang
Within the hated walls the turmoil dies as the prisoner learns that there is
no cscape tor him
The oyer-hanging clouds appear to settle more closely to the earth The
mists and rain are thicker now, and once more the walls are practically

Looking back over previous annuals, we found that in 1890
there were no sophomores. The three years of high school were
freshman, junior, and senior. How could the school get along
without the sophomores? That is the question. After all, when
you are a freshman, you are nothing: but when you are a sopho-
more, you begin to come up in the world. During this year, class
cfficers are elected, because the chief reason for electing officers
is to promote a feeling of unity, friendship, and class spirit among
the members. The sophomores certainly have not let the school
get along without them this year.

Have you ever been conscious of the eyes which
loo': at you each day? Notice those big, brown eyes
of the boy in English class, the laughing blue eyes of
your best girl friend, and the serious, grey eyes of
your teacher. All through life you must look at the
eyes which watch you each day. Always the laugh-
ing eyes, bright eyes, serious eyes, crying eyes, sad
eyes, and frightened eyes cf other people will watch
Some people can express fear, anger, hate, and
many other emotions with their eyes. f-laven't you
known some persons who talked with their eyes?
When angry, their eyes cloud up and immediately
their anger becomes obvious to all the people
As you walk down the street the next time you
are going home, watch the eyes of the people about
you--the wistful eyes of the little girl who is stand-
ing in front of the candy shop, the merciless eyes of
the man who is standing on the street corner, and
the kind, generous eyes of the middle-agecl woman
who is getting on a bus. Become aware of them!
There are no two people in the world who have
exactly the same kind of eyes, for behind every
pair of eyes is a different brain with different
thoughts. These thoughts show in the eyes of hu-
l hope l have made you aware of the eyes of
the world. Notice them. Learn to tell what they are
thinking. 'Nho knows?

The National Honor Society is a nation-wide
aganization. Members are chosen from the
xippcr ten per cent ot their class, and member-
ship is based upcn four aualitiesffcharacter,
leadership, scholarship, and service. Probation-
ary membership has been granted to a group
ct juniors and seniors, but permanent members
may be chosen only upon graduation. Lifetime
membership is then bestowed upon those who
aualify. By honoring Worthy students and pro-
moting worthwhile activifies, the N a t i o n al
Honor Society is definitely an asset to our high
The Honor Roll is a method by which our
school honor students strive for and attain a
goal worthy of recognition. These students
have maintained an "A" average tor the
semester in at least four solid subiects. Scho-
lastic attainments should not be underesti-
mated, and we hope more names will be added
to the Honor Roll.

Our Debate Society is one of which we should
all be proud.
The question debated this year was, briefly:
That the government should institute socialized
medicine. Those on the affirmative "A" team
were Amelia Hollingsworth, and Thursa Beav-
ers. Those on the negative team were
lack Parker and Kay Cotton. Charlotte lNay-
mire served as the only alternate.
ln 387 BC., Plato, the great philosopher,
was responsible for the first idea of student
government. He organized an Academy com-
posed of teachers and studen's. This was the
first time students were given the right of hav-
ing self-government. Down through the years,
many people have contributed to this idea un-
til it has grown into a nation-wide organization
with the purpose of teaching self-government.
In our high school, we have a very efficient
and progressive student council. The members
have been doing commendable work, and
much credit for the fine management of the
student council should be given to its sponsor,

Sunshine Societies are established in many
communities throughout the nation. All girls of
high school age are eligible for membership.
The Elwood chapter was organized in l943
and in November, l946, the district convention
was held at the Willkie High School with three
hundred girls in attendance.
The Society has high ideals and its goal is
t'o help the needy, bring cheer and comfort to
shut-ins, and share happiness with others. At
Christmas time the girls help the less fortunate
in their community. A very important project
of the society is the Riley Fund. Each chapter
makes an annual pledge which is sent to the
Riley Memorial Hospital in lndianapolis.

The Megaphone staff belongs to the Indiana
High School Press Association and each year
members attend the press meetings at Frank-
Everyone appreciates the Megaphone be-
cause it is our school paper for the students,
by the students, and about the students.
Under the capable supervision of Miss Mary
Allen, the sponsor of the Megaphone, the staff
is able to produce one of the best school-papers
in the state of Indiana. We feel sure that our
fine paper is the result of the tireless effort on
the part of every staff member.
The Megaphone is a sixesheet newspaper
which contains editorials, book reviews, ac-
counts of school social activities and several
feature articles. A new column, "What Do You
Think?" has been added to the paper. ln this
column any student can express what he or
she thinks about any subject. Many students
have already taken advantage of this oppor-
tunity for expressing his views. Shirley Ellis's,
"Rabbit Tales," provides the hurnor. lack
Parker writes the sports page which always
proves interesting-especially to the boys. The
articles, "For Men Only," and "For Girls Only,"
give both sexes knowledge of the latest fash-
ions from a student's viewpoint.
No paper is complete without a gossip col-
umn. Our gossip column, called "Off the Rec-
ord," is written by Rita Robbins. Next comes
the "Den Drollery," written by Carol Southern.
This article tells about what happens in the
Panther Den. Our Megaphone does a fine job
of reporting all activities.

to increase in the coming years with such an
able leader and sponsor as Mrs. Tones. She
has already encouraged and helped the Latin
Club members. They now have their pins. The
initiation tor the new members was the high-
light of their activities. They also entertained
at a Christmas party.

the Latin class but also those who have had
Latin in previous years are admitted to mem-
bership in the Latin Club.

Something new has been added! Mr. Brown
is the new sponsor of the Dramatic Club. Since
he knows and understands public speaking so
well, he was indeed very capable in directing
our plays. Our first production was the Christ-
mas play which was given by the Dramatic
Club this year instead ot the senior class which
has heretofore had charge of the Christmas pro-
gram. This year the Dramatic Club showed its
ability not only in assisting in the dramatic pro-
duction of the junior and senior class plays,
but also in successfully presenting three one-
act plays during the second semester. These
plays revealed unexpected talent among those
taking part in them.
This club met during activities period on
THE SENIOR CLASS PLAY
This year the seniors made an excellent
choice for their annual play. lt was an ex-
ciing mystery called The Red Spider.
Early in the year tryouts were heldy soon
seniors began disappearing into the auditorium
to practice behind closed doors. The subject
matter of the play was eagerly sought by the
uninitiated, lout the secret was kept success-
fully. Suspense was heightened loy hairy red
spiders crawling over the study hall slates.
Members of the cast went around chortling
evilly to themselves, almost driving their friends
mad from curiosity.
The teachers were nervous, the students
were on pins and needles: but finally the "Day
of Presentation" arrived. Yet before the high
school could see this thriller, junior high school
had to be satisfied. So all morning the tense
high school sat in classes and study halls
listening to screams, groans, and shcts. At
last everyone filed in to his seat. The lights
dimmedfwent out. The curtain drew Lack
slowly fthe play was on!
The last curtain closed. All sat back limply
in their seats, realizing that The Red Spider,
the first mystery ever to be given by a senior
class of Elwood, was a SUCCESS!

out books, and to be able to put them away
quickly, They must know the shelf numbers
and be able to place the books correctly.
Scphomores, juniors, and seniors who wish to

to work in the library. These students must be

One ot the least publicized, but most im-

The Projection Club is one of our most
popular clubs because during the year it brings
Lis many films of interest which are helpful in
our education. The club also brings us a few
films for pleasure only during the year. This
year there are thirty boys in the club and they
have a new projector with which they have
done a very good job under the direction of
their president, Kenneth Free, and their spon-
sor, Mr. Smith.
At the basketball and football games we
always notice the ushers Wearing their attrac-
tive uniforms and doing their various iobs.
They direct the spectators to their seats: they
protect the lrasketball floor and pass out pro-
grams. We also see them at the football games
where they handle the crowds.

ELWOOD HIC-H SCHOCL BAND
The history of the Elwood High School Band
began in 1921 when the band was organized
with Mr. Robert Burt as director. Mr. Cole re-
placed Mr. Burt in 1937: Mr. Watkins succeeded
Mr. Cole and in 1938 Mr. Gilkie took over Mr.
Watkins place as director of music. At that
time effort was concentrated upon symphony
Work with a small band of thirty-eight mem-
bers. ln 1941, the music department was taken
over by L. Rush Hughes. Now in 1946, we have
another new music director-Mr. Clifford
This year the band has marched and
worked up various formations on the football
field. Also after each basketball game, the
band remained in the gym and played until
all of the people had gone.
Concerts were presented by the band on
Sunday afternoons during the year for the en-
joyment of the public.
Another thing that has been added for the
goal of the band is the "challenge system."
Every six weeks Mr. Brugger goes through each
section of the band, hears each person play
individually, then places him where he is best
suited. Also the band has a twirler, lo Ann
Ault, and a drum major, Max Iordan. Their
efforts have helped greatly in making the
marching band a great success.
The citizens of Elwood, as well as the stu-
dents of the Willkie High School, are very
proud of this band and of the work they are

Before 1943 there was no lunior High School
Band. There was only the high-school band
which Was made up of grade, junior-high and
high-school students. In 1943 Mr. Hughes, our
former music director, organized a B-band, now
called the lunior High School Band, which con-
sists of students from the fifth to the eighth
Mr. Brugger now leads the lunior High Band
which practices three days a week during ac-
tivities period. This organization has an award
system much the same as the high-school band.
Mr. Brugger has stated that he is well-pleased
with this group.
In previous years the Iunior High Band has
participated in almost all of the concerts given
by the high-school band. This year, however,
the Iunior High Band presented its own concert
in the Junior High Auditorium.
This group is giving not only its own con-
cert, but also is furnishing the music for the
junior-high basketball games. These students
will take part in the Spring Concert presented
by the music department.
This organization helps to train students
coming into the high school band to fill vacant
places left by graduating seniors.
ln contrast to the marches, college songs,
and lively music played by the band come the
softer cmd sweeter selections played by the
high-school orchestra. This organization is the
oldest in the school and it was at one time the
principal mainstay of the entire music depart-
ment. Our orchestra has both junior high and
senior high-school students.
The orchestra will not participate in the
concerts presented by the high school band
this year, but it will present a program in the
Spring Concert which will be given by all of
the music department.
The orchestra furnishes music for the junior
and senior plays, and also for commencement.
Mr. Brugger and the orchestra believe that
much of the success of the orchestra is due to

GIRLS C-LEE CLUB
Again this year the girls glee club is com-
posed oi girls from the fifth or sixth period study
halls. Mr. Brugger is using a laboratory method
which simply means that the girls are learning
the basic principles of music.
They sang for the Yuletide Echoes Decem-
ber l5, and the Spring Band Concert. Several
Glee clubs have been in existence in our
high school for many years. The present boys
glee club is composed of nineteen members
who meet two days each week in the high-
school auditorium. Miss Lee is the director
and the accompanist is Gloria Gilmore.
This glee club has steadily improved dur-
This group, which is now known as Mixed
Chorus, has taken the place of the Acapella
Choir. lt is under the leadership of our music
director, Mr. Brugger, and accompanied by one
of its student members, Berneta Wittkamper.
The chorus is made up of four-part harmony
-soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. lt consists of
fifty-four members, who meet on Tuesday and
members sang in the solo contest at Blooming-
ton. The members of the music department also
participated in the Campus Comedies of 1946
which was given in April. The school has ap-
preciated the good work and cooperation given
by the glee club and we hope that the future
glee clubs will be as progressive in their work.
ing the year. Much new music has been pur-
chased and many new selections learned for
special programs. The boys sang for our
Christmas program and during chapel hours
for both junior and senior high schools. They
appeared before the Elwood and Alexandria
Friday mornings during Activities Period.
Because there were more girls than boys,
the girls were tested for their vocal ability and
the ones best qualified were selected so as to
maintain an equal number of boys and girls.
The chorus presented its first performance
to the public on the Sunday of December 15,

Last years Panther football team was one that will be re
membered for a long While.
The members of the team were all willing to give their best
to win every game. The back field was easily the answer to any
coach's dream. 'To top that, they had a line in front of them that
could make holes big enough to drive a truck through.
A few tough breaks fell the Panther's way. loe Fritz suffered
a broken leg and was lost for the season after the West Lafayette
game, and Zip Davis has a recurrence of an old injury that put
him over with the water bucket for a set of games. However, loe's
shoes were filled by lim Merritt while lack Coston, Willie Wise,
and Scott Lasley all took a sling at Zip's spot.
Yes, as a whole the Panthers were tough, but there's still
another side to the story. A team's only as good as its coaches,
and did we have a pair of good ones! When you put Bykowski
on the line, and Allen with the back field and ends, what else
could you have but a tough team?
Yes, we can all say that the Panthers had "it" and they surely
knew how to use what they knew even to the student managers
who are the best in the business. But now all that is left in the
minds of those seniors who ended their high-school football career
is memories of "the good old days."

This season's basketball team ran up against the toughest
list of opponents of any team in the country. Despite this fact,
the boys established a name for themselves that was feared by
all their opponents.
While dropping games to such teams as Southport, Hunting,
ton, Rochester, Froebel of Gary, Anderson, and Tipton-all highly
regarded in press polls throughout the season -fthey were able to
step over Marion, Walztash, Peru, Plymouth, Alexandria, Hart-
ford City, and Burris.
On the whole we say, "Hats ott to the Panther BB. boys!"

Even though they didn't produce any sterling performances during the
season, they did get that necessary experience needed to have winning teams

as Anderson, Tipton, Frankfort, Alex, and Lapel.

Although we don't hear much about the
agriculture basketball team, it is an outstanding
athletic attraction tor those boys who are tak-
ing an agriculture course. The boys who make
up this team play exciting games and have
good times just as the varsity players do.
These athletically inclined boys have prac'
tice at designated times during the Week in co'

times and successful games to their sponsor,
The agriculture team had no specific sched-
ule tcr the season. lt just played the Ag. team
ct any other school who wished to compete
with it. Although the boys were beaten by
Alexandria and Anderson, they rolled over

team had a rather good season.
