First ot all We enter the school buildinq about 8:30 a. m, Then before qainq back to the Pan- ther Den to dance at noon, we usually like to drop-in at Sarn's tor an ice-cream cone.

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?

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. Left -A daily occurrence.

Do you suppose one of this same Unusual class will find his name lnscrihed within some future hall of fame? 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. loe Fritz has be en the able leader of this committee which has functioned wonderfully well in aiding the athletic program of our school. Shop Shop courses, directed by Mr. Harry House, provide an ex- cellent opportunity tor high school boys to learn such industrial occupations as woodworking, foundry work, and metalworking. Under the capable supervision ot Mr. House, these boys have made everything from small electric motors to boats. We should be proud of the fact that these boys can learn such useful trades in our school.

To prove this statement just rest your eyes upon the wide-spread smile of joy on the faces of Bill Mos! chell, Charlie Copher, and Dick Hobbs. 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. THE 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. School Board Ralph Stevens, Secretary: Mel- vin Robinson, President, Mark Noble, Treasurer. ADMINSTRATICJN Iarnes Allen, B.S.

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 fQuite Petitel Who is always very gay. She guards her auto robe For fear, 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 and Q'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. tf " V , W, Q Vawfi i ' 'K -:ix M ' h "' ,Ig 4 ,- V?

Willkie High School we have many thoughts about the wonderful new world in which we are to have so great a part. Never before has a senior class had such chal- lenging opportunities. On all sides there is talk ftalk about atomic power, talk about a third world war, talk about the U.N.O. Out oi all this talk there must be something definite involved.. And on our shoulders this most important task must ultimately tall. Vlfe must avoid the utter darkness of despair. We must strive for the peace and happiness which is waiting. Not until We have dispelled the darkness will we have proved Worthy of our heritage. Thus, as we, the graduating class of 1947, leave school days behind us, we go into the World to become Builders of Peace in a bright new World.

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 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. juniors.

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. David Pace .. P e id rt Richard Brenner Vice Presidert ludy Sloan. ,. , .

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 you. 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 around. 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- man beings. l hope l have made you aware of the eyes of the world. Notice them. Learn to tell what they are thinking.

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 school. 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.

Some of their ac- complishments are: Non decisional debate with Fairmount. Two day debate conference at Purdue Uni- versity. l2 team invitational tourney at Laporte. Didn't place. Victory at the Wabash invitational tourney. T6 won, none lost.l Debate sectional. Another victory-T4 won, none lostl. Defeated Richmond and won the regional! The debate team now advances to the state finals at North Manchester College where they will compete with seven other re- gional winners. 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, Mr. Scott.

SUNSHIN 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.

In addition, they are given an hour's instruction daily in Sunshine activities. A very beautiful and impressive candle- light service was held in the auditorium this year when both old and new members were initiated. Regular meetings are held once a week and officers elected for this year were: President, Carol Kurtz: Vice-President, Betty Heaton: Secretary, Kay Gibbons: Treasurer, Iudith Sloan: Corresponding Secretary, Mar- garet Bohlander.

MEGAPHONE The Megaphone staff belongs to the Indiana High School Press Association and each year members attend the press meetings at Frank- lin, Indiana. 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.

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. Not only students who are now members ot the Latin class but also those who have had Latin in previous years are admitted to mem- bership in the Latin Club. we students ot Vfendell Willkie High School wish "o thank the program committee tor its good work this year.

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 alternate Tuesdays. 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!

LIBRARY ASSISTANTS The duty of the library assistants is to check 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 lfecomo library assistants may ask Miss Allen to work in the library. These students must be passing in all subjects, and have one tree period a day. One ot the least publicized, but most im- portant, organizations ot the school is the Trays and Buckets Club. Hard-working members of this organization are seen at every home basketball game selling potato chips, popcorn, ice cream, and soft drinks to those students who have worked up an appetite cheering the team. Another place you can always find these energetic people is in the Panther Den, taking care ot the coke bar every Tuesday and Saturday night.

The club also brings us a few films for pleasure only during the year.

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. This year there are eighteen members in the club directed by one head usher, Donald Benefiel, who was elected by the group. We are proud of this club and its sponsor, Mr. Davis.

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 Brugger. 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 doing.

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 grades. 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. ORCHESTRA 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 the efforts of Mrs. Zimmerman. Mrs. Zimmer- man is the instructor for stringed instruments. She teaches violin, cello, bass viol, and viola. Our sincere thanks to you, Mrs. Zimmerman.

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.

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. LEE CLUB C 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 Kiwanis Clubs. HORUS 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, l946, .W ff -z if Q 'Q M ' 'Rd' B2 T5- 'mal L .,., ,4.

VARSITY FOOTBAL 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."

FRESHMAN FOOTBALL The freshmen football team made but few appearances upon the local gridiron last season, but when they did play, they per- formed in a promising way. As a whole the team was fast with Acres and Kane supplying the spark in the backfield and a hard- charging line. Frank Bykowski coached the yearlings through a fair season.

RSITY BASKETBALL 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.

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

Phil Arnold faired well in the middle distance races and Bob Courtney in the broad jump. The Panthers had a crack half- mile relay team composed of Davis, Summers, Coulter, and Courtney as anchor man. Because of the fact that the Crescent goes to press before the l947 season is over, no story will be carried concerning this season.
