They work together to make this school what it is: solve its problems, advise the students and faculty and bring the school and community closer together. There has been a change in the school officials since last year. Mr. Scott has become Superintendent, and our new Principal is Mr. Copeland. The School Board, whose members are the same as last year, represent the citizens of Elwood in decisions of school policy.

Why, it seems as though it were only yesterday that we reported for our first classes in El wood High School. Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years passed quickly, and suddenly we were Seniors! In our Senior year we had so much to do that we really had to work fast. Plans were made for a class trip, and many a senior worked hard selling magazine subscriptions to raise funds for that big event. All in all, though, we had a good time in high school, and it is with mixed feelings of pride and sorrow that we plan for graduation.SENIORS GEORGE ACRES Senior Class President Panther Den President, 1947 Home Room Officer, 4 years Varsity Football Track E-Men’s Club JACK ADAIR Home Room Officer Freshman Basketball and Track Mixed Chorus CHARLES ALLEN Track Dramatic Club DONALD ALLEN Junior Class Play Intramural Basketball Projection Room Home Room Officer PAUL ALTHERR Voc.

In the football and basketball lineups several junior boys were to be found. In the bleachers, the girls of the class were important members of the cheering section of the Boosters’ Club. Not only were juniors prominent in athletics, but in all the other school clubs and organizations. The junior-senior prom and the class play were new experiences for the class members, and wearing the class rings and sweaters was a high light of the year. Along scholastic lines we find several juniors have attained the distinction of being selected as probationary members of the National Honor Society. Even though this year has been an important and memorable one, all the juniors are eagerly looking forward to a senior year of accomplishment.JUNIORS FLOYD ABERNATHY DICK ADAIR LOWELL ALEXANDER BEATRICE ARNOLD MARILYN AUSTIN CLEMENCE BAKER FRANK BANNON BARBARA BAXTER DON BOHLANDER MARY BORING KENNETH BOURUFF EUGENE BORUFF LOREN BOYER RICHARD BRENNER JACK BREWER AMBERS BRIGHT RALPH CARPENTER JOHNNY CARROLL JACK CASE DORIS CHAMPION RICHARD CLINE PHYLLIS CLOUD NANCY CLYDE GENE CLYMER BILL COLLINS JOHN CONWELL MARIANNE CONWELL LESLIE COURTNEY Thirty-threeJUNIORS MARY CUNNINGHAM MARILYN DARROW LEON DAVENPORT MARILYN DAVIES MARILYN DOVERSBERGER WILFRED DUDLEY WILLIS FERN RICHARD FISH RICHARD FRENCH JOYCE GARDNER KAY GIBBONS CAROLYN GILL LOUIS GILLESPIE JACK GIPSON EDMAN GOODRICH DOROTHY GOOTEE JACK GRAHAM GEORGE GREEN RICHARD GREEN BILL GROOVER JAMES N.

As freshmen we were the ones to be picked on, but now we have left all that behind. We are the ones who delight in misleading this year’s freshmen. We really don’t want them to get a bad start, so we hope that our class will set a good example for them to follow. Until a few years ago sophomores were not even included in the class organization of our high school, but they now hold a prominent place. The first election of class officers is held in the sophomore year. We hope to perform the expected duties and make this school year one of the best for ourselves and the rest of the student body.SOPHOMORES JAMES ACRES JUNIOR ABPLANALP JOHNNY BADEN HALFORD BAKER NORA BALLINGER DICK BEACH CLARA BEEMAN JAMES BORUFF JACK BOUSLOG RICHARD BRADLEY JEAN ANN BROYLES FLORENCE BURCHETTE BONNA CLARK ROBERT CLARY DIXIE COLLINS PATRICK COOK DAVID COPHER NANCY COTTON CAROLYN COX JACK COX MARTHA DAVIES BILLY DAVIS DONALD DAVIS MYRNA DELONG TOM DOTY JOHN DUFFITT CHARLES DUNN CONSTANCE ELLIS FortySOPHOMORES PAULINE EVANS BETTY FARR JAMES FETTIG PATRICIA FIHE CAROLYN FINCHER EARL FOLEY CHARLES FRAZIER DALE FRENCH ROBERT FRENCH DAVID FULLER RICHARD GILL ROBERT GILL LOIS GILLESPIE ROBERT GISELBACH KATHLEEN GRAHAM DORCAS HAHN BONNIE HARTING NANCY HARTLEY NANCY HEFLIN NEVA HENDERSON MICKEY HENNEGAN MORRIS HERKLESS DONALD HILL MARILYN HIMELICK JACK HOBBS MARGARET HOLT LOIS HOSTETTER EUGENE HUFFER Forty-oneSOPHOMORES DONALD HUGHES ROBERT HUNTSINGER RAY JACKSON JERRY KARCH GROVER KELLEY WILLIAM LANGE JACK LAUB PHYLLIS LEGG DAVID LEISURE BILLY LEWIS WILLADENE LYNAS GENE MALEY DARRELL MILLER JOAN MOODY PATRICIA MURPHY JAMES McELFRESH WILLIAM McGUIRE JACQUELINE McGUIRE RICHARD McMAHAN vivan McQueen BOB McQUITTY LARRY NOBLE EARL NOEL CARL NOEL RONALD OGLE MYRON ORBAUGH WILBUR PERKINS PATRICIA PHILLIPS Forty-twoSOPHOMORES KENNETH PURTEE DICK ROBBINS LINDA ROBINSON DELORES ROBERTSON JAMES ROCKHILL ROGER ROE JEAN ROLAND RALPH SCOTT JEANNINE SANDERS MARTHA SCIRCLE PAUL SHALLENBURGER JAY SIMMONS JEANNINE SINGER BARBARA SKILLMAN JOHN SLAYTON BETTY SMEDLEY HERBERT SMITH MARGARET SMITH PHYLLIS SOSBE CAROL SOWASH WILLIAM STONE JERRY TAYLOR CHARLES THORNBERRY HELEN TYNER CARL UTTERBACK PHYLLIS WALKER JOHN WARD BARBARA WATSON Forty-threeSOPHOMORES BILL WAYMIRE JAMES WEBB LEO WEBB JERRY WHEELER ROBERT WHITEHEAD WILLIAM WIAND MARILYN WILLIAMS ALICE WILSON JOYCE VAN BRIGGLE EUGENE VAN NESS SUE ALVEY GLELAND COLLIER JOE DURR DAVID FULLER JACK HOBBS MAX McCORKLE JANE RILEY GENE DOCKTOR Forty-fourA Sophomore’s Point of View Seniors! Last year when I was one of those poor lost souls called freshmen, I regarded seniors as a sort of monster. This year I know them as elated persons who parade around using self descriptive adjectives such as “almighty,” “dynamic,” and “all-powerful.” They’re really not so bad though. But as for senior cords, those things!! Still the seniors are really proud of them. I wonder why Some of them are covered with writing and pictures and look as though they’ve never been washed—principally because they haven’t. Another thing about seniors, if you look closely, you can see little dollar signs shining out of the corners of their eyes. They’re always asking you to buy something; a dollar for this, two dollars for that. Poor money-mad souls. As for the juniors, I’ll make it short and not too sweet. They seem to think they’re even better than the seniors—if that’s possible. From the end of May to the beginning of September, they change into completely new individuals. When you were a freshman, they knew you; now they have to get acquainted all over again. I wonder why they chose red for their color. Could it be to attract attention? All I have to say for the freshmen is that the green they wear so often goes well with their complexions. Fanfare!! The sophomores—we are a very brilliant, talented, and skillful group of individuals. Our cords are red and blue. The blue is because of our demureness in spite of our ability. The red to keep unthinking people from overlooking us. There are in our midst many wonderful people—heroic football and basketball players—future state champions, brilliant intellectuals, talented artists, etc. We have come through half of our high school years. We, of course, look forward to being upper classmen; however these first years have not been idle ones. You have heard a lot from us and you will hear more. This has been my opinion of the other classmen. What do you think of us? Or should I ask? William Stone Forty-fiveF R E S H M E N FRESHMAN REPRESENTATIVES MARY LOU SCIRCLE, TOMMY HAINES, PAT VANGETS FRESHMEN CLASS The freshmen sponsors this year are Mr. Forney, Mrs. Jones, Miss Koons, Mr. Bridges, and Miss Earnes. No school could get along without its freshmen. Even though they don’t have any class officers and aren’t always accustomed to the ways of the school, they are certainly a vital part. The freshmen are always helped by the upper classmen who are so eager to show them where to go. Before long, though, the freshmen become wise to the helpful hints and begin to look forward to the day when they can help some other freshmen. The remodeling of the Panther Den prevented the Student Council from having a welcoming party for the freshmen, so we would like to take this opportunity at the end of the year to say, “Welcome freshmen and good luck in your coming sophomore year.”FRESHMEN CARROLL ALEXANDER JANET ANDERSON ELIZABETH ARNOLD MARGARET ARNOLD MARY ASHWILL JERRY AULT EUNADINE BALDWIN SALLY BANNON FLOYD BARNES REX BEACH MAX BEEMAN EMMA BENNETT BARBARA BERGEMANM SHIRLEY BIDDLE BETTY BITNER NORMA BREECE JOSEPH BREWER CAROLYN BROWN CLIFTON BURTON RALPH CALDWELL EMMA CARLILE CAROL CARPENTER HAROLD CASTOR PHILLIP CHAMPION JANE COLLINS LAWRENCE COPPOCK RICHARD COSTON CAROL COTTON Forty-sevenFRESHMEN ELBERT COTTON ROBERT CROCKETT RUTH DAUGHERTY LUELLA DAULTON DAVID DAVIES RAY DAVIS REVA MAE DAVIS MARTHA DEHNER DAVID DELLINGER JAMES DICKEY BETTY DOWLING MARY DUFFITT BETTY EVERLING ROBERT FARR ELIZABETH FETZ JOHN FIHE WILLIS FRYE GENE GALLATIN JACK GALLATIN NANCY GARDNER HAROLD GERARD HAROLD GILL JILL GIPSON RAYMOND GISELBACH AGNES GLOTZBACH EDWARD GLOTZBACH VIOLET GLOTZBACH DANNY GOOD Forty-eightFRESHMEN SHARON GRAY JACK GREEN BEVERLY GREEN RAYMOND GREEN LAWRENCE GROOVER THOMAS HAINES ROBERT HANCOCK MAX HANKLEY CHIQUELA HARRISON PHILIP HAYNES JANICE HENDERSON BARBARA HERSHEY DALLAS HESTER DONALD HIGHT JAMES HILL BONNIE HINDS NANCY HOLTSCLAW JAMES HOOSE WILLIAM HUNTSINGER WANDA HUNT LUCY HUBBARD ROBERT JORDAN JOSEPH JUDAY JOE KELICH JACK KIPHART BEVERELY KNOTTS RAMONA KNOTTS MARY LAUB Forty-nineFRESHMEN PATRICIA LASTER SARA LEE LEGG BILL LEWIS THOMAS MANGHELLI JANE McCARTY thomas McCarthy Patricia McDaniel JEAN McNEELEY RAYMOND McPHEARSON DALE McQUEEN JOAN McQUEEN MARY MEYER FREDERICK MILLER PHILLIP MILLER JIMMY MITCHELL GENE MOON JOHN MOORE REBECCA MORGAN FRED MORRIS PATRICIA NASH MARTHA NEELEY GEOFFREY NEIGHBORS DORA NICCUM FRANKIE PARROTT LOIS PENN DON PLAKE DANNY PORTER CLARENCE LUSE FiftyFRESHMEN ROBERT POWELL MERRILL QUARLES MARLA ANN RAY BARBARA RETHERFORD JO ANN ROCKHILL TEDDY ROWE LEONA ROSS BARBARA SCHMIDT MARY SCIRCLE MADALENE SEAL MARYBELLE SHIVELY STEPHEN SIZELOVE JOYCE SKIRVIN MARY JANE SMITH RONNIE SOUTHERN RICHARD STAFFORD JOE STEVENS BEULAH STOOKEY CHARLES SYKORA ROBERT TALLEY ERLE TOMLINSON NETTIE TOWNSEND ORVILLE TRANBARGER PATRICIA VANGETS JESSE VAN HORN MYRON VAN HORN CAROLYN VAN NESS WILLIAM WALKER Fifty-oneFRESHMEN BETTY WATSON HAL WAYMIRE CAROLYN WELLS LOUISE WHITAKER BILL WHITENACK EUGENIA WIDNER SHIRLEY WILBURN LEONA WILLIAMS DON WIRE KARLEEN WISLER GLENDA WOOD MARILYN YOUNG SARAH FOWLER JOHN HOLLIDAY CARL MUNNS JACK WALSH JOYCE HOLLENSBE DAVID HOLLIDAY MARY LEEVER GEORGE NOEI E Fifty-twoBROTHERHOOD As I bowed my head in prayer, I looked about to see The people of other races, who were going to pray with me. Beside me stood a negro, his black hands gently pressed Against the heart so full of praise, that beat within his breast. Behind me stood a yellow lad, with slanted eyes upraised, And looking on the other side, a Hindu I saw there Her eyes were closed, her head was bowed in silent, fervent prayer. And then I saw before me a fair haired Swedish maid 1 he eyes of blue were filled with tears, and we together prayed, “Our Father”— Written by Shirley Donley at the Cleveland Conference January 2, 1948 Fifty-threeA What would happen if we didn’t have our activities? Without them we would lose some of the foundation of our school. Just think of the many extra-curricular activities with which you are concerned. Think them over slowly in order to realize their true value. First, there is the Student Council. This is really one organization to which you can be proud to belong. It is the backbone of our school—the seat of democracy in our school. Then there is the Booster’s Club. What would our yelling section do without this loyal group? And have you noticed how pretty the Booster’s Club looks? Also there are the football, track, and basketball teams whom we shouldn’t forget. Good participation is always shown in these particular activities. We give our thanks to the Dramatic and Projection Clubs for keeping us out of that Latin or Algebra class. Of course, those pictures and plays were good, too. The Megaphone, with representatives from all classes, keeps us in contact with all current events. The Annual helps recall many passing memories of good old times at W. H. S. Student participation in these and many other organizations not mentioned here promote co-operation and leadership as effective citizenship training.

To start the Crescent drive, a program in which all members of the Crescent staff participate is usually presented shortly after school starts in the fall. Then salesmen are assigned to every homeroom, and, from then on until publishing time, the Crescent room is rarely deserted. The make-up staff must prepare a dummy of the Crescent in order to decide just where all the pictures and articles should go. Then those hundreds of pictures have to be sorted, identified, and put in the proper places in the dummy by the Picture Staff. The Literary Editor must decide upon the length of all the articles to be written and assign those articles to the members of the Literary Staff. Those members, in turn, must try to think of something to write before the rapidly approaching deadline. When all those articles aie finished and corrected, they are typed exactly as they will appear in the Crescent. At length this work is completed and the finished model is sent to the publishers. The staff then is able to sit back and know that it is now only a matter of waiting until those nice, new Crescents arrive.

Latin Club The consuls for the Inter Nos Latin Club for this year were Jack Gipson and Virginia Haynes who alternated in presiding over the bi-monthly meetings. The activities of these meetings ranged from contests, songs, and special reports to short plays. This school year marked the first Latin Week for the local club, high lighted by a formal initiation of new members and a program presented to the student body. This year also marked the affiliation of Inter Nos with the Junior Classical League, a division of the American Classical League. Each year on Honor Day the club presents awards to three members with outstanding scholastic and achievement records. Lib rary Assistants Although the library assistants form no official organization, they are an indispensable group in our high school. Under the direction of Miss Allen, the librarian, these pupils help to keep our library in order and assist in the handling of books and magazines. Each of the students works in the library during his study periods. Our school library is always a pleasant room in which to study—a room always kept in perfect order and one which contains well-organized shelves of books. Miss Allen and her library assistants are to be highly commended.

Megaphone The Megaphone, our school paper, has quite an interesting historical background. The need for a school paper was first realized in 1923, a staff was organized, and plans were laid. Aided by teachers, patrons of the school, business men and its sponsor, Mr. Emig, the staff produced in January, 1924, our first school paper, "The Forge.“ Although it was small, it satisfied its readers not only giving them news of school activities but also other interesting and amusing features, such as a gossip column. After several years of inactivity, the paper was reorganized in 1941 under the direction of Miss Cynthia Demaree. The first small mimeographed edition of the Megaphone was a far cry from the professional appearing publication we look forward to reading today. The Megaphone staff is a member of the Indiana High School Press Association and attends press meetings which are held each year at Franklin, Indiana. Under the capable supervision of Mrs. Barr, the sponsor of the Megaphone, the staff is able to produce one of the best school papers in the state of Indiana. As you know, no school paper is better than the staff behind it. This explains why the Megaphone is outstanding. Fifty-nineJUNIOR AND SENIOR GROUP Sunshine The Sunshine Society is such a large organization that it has been divided into two groups, the freshmen and sophomores and the juniors and seniors. These two groups meet on alternate Mondays under the sponsorship of Miss Esther Koons. FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE GROUP SixtyDramatic Club "E” Men The Dramatic Club has again proved itself capable of providing the school with excellent entertainment. Much of its success is due to the leadership of Mr. Brown, the sponsor. The first play was given before Christmas and three one-act plays were successfully presented during the second semester. The Dramatic Club also assisted in producing the junior and senior class plays. The E-Men’s Club is the representative body of our high school athletes. Since its organization three years ago, it has been the goal of attainment for the football, basketball and track hopefuls. The club, with its roster of thirty-five members, is sponsored by Mr. Ward and presided over by Scott Lasley. Sixty-oneThe Senior Class Play Have you ever wondered what would happen if the man you intended to marry suddenly decided that he didn’t want to marry you? That is exactly what happened in the senior’s lovable comedy—“The Groom Said No.” The groom, Steve Cameron, had been in World War II and had been treated in a hospital for a leg injury. He could not help but fall in love with a certain nurse by the name of Shirley Anderson, but when he came home, he found to his dismay that he was to be married to Clara Curtis, an old high school flame. What could he do? As he had been in a hospital, he decided to act as if he were a psycho - neurotic. Shirley came to his rescue as his very pert, but alert nurse, and then there was Steve’s sister, Patty, who helped their love life along. But also there was his Mother who was very much determined to have Clara, and not Shirley, for a daughter-in-law. We mustn’t forget Father who was a good natured, easy-going man with a keen sense of humor. Everything seemed to be very complicated until Ed Smith came and stole Clara away from co-operative Steve. Naturally, there was a happy-ever-after ending. Some side attractions were a little flirtation between Steve’s sister, Virgie, and her boy friend, Willie and Mrs. Sorenson, a determined neighbor, who added comedy to the play. The little girl next door, Mary Alice (who couldn’t keep a secret), helped in making this a play to be long remembered. Although the cast had a great part in making the play a success, there was also the production staff which was made up of many students. The play was given under the excellent direction of Mr. Donald Brown, dramatic coach, and Anita Beckett, assistant. The prompter was Dolores Commons; stage manager, Charles Hasecuster; property, Dolores McCan; costumes, Betty Beilhartz; make-up, Shirley Krebs; publicity, Burvia Anderson; tickets, Joan Stone; and programs, Francis Kelly. The cast included Ava Lee Wisler, Barbara Shaw, Louise Bell, Amelia Hollingsworth, Jo Ann Ault, Maurice Fettig, Richard Sivert, Catherine Davies, Louis Benedict, Martha Parr, Phyllis Hiatt, Darle Lou Transbarger, Betty Morris, Patty Benedict, and Burvia Anderson.

Both negative and affirmative teams were entered. On January 3, Jack Parker and Amelia Hollingsworth, negative; Betty Pietz and Charlotte Waymire, affirmative, journeyed to Wabash to win five out of six debates. This was the second straight year in which Elwood teams had won the Wabash tourney. On January 17, a debate tourney was held in Elwood with 13 teams participating besides our own. Concordia won the tourney—with Elwood teams “A” winning two, losing two, and teams “B” tying for first place. Several other trips were made by the teams during the school year. Their record has been extremely good. This year’s team is made up of students with two, three or four years in debating. Those students who have debated in the various tourneys are: Betty Pietz, Charlotte Waymire, Jack Parker, Amelia Hollingsworth, Joan Cotton, James Hamilton, Carl Utterbach, Myrna DeLong, William Stone and Jack Gibson. At the Ball State tournament Joan Cotton and Jack Parker entered the extemporaneous speaking contest. Jack won the rating of excellent and Joan was rated good. The hopes of these debaters were very high when it came to the sectional, regional, semi-final, and final state debate contests.

National Honor Society The National Honor Society is a scholastic organization recognized throughout the nation. Members are chosen from the upper ten per cent of their class, and membership is based upon four qualities—character, leadership, scholarship and service. Probationary membership is granted to a group of juniors and seniors, but permanent members may be chosen only upon graduation. By honoring worthy stuudents and promoting worthwhile activities, the National Honor Society makes good citizenship and outstanding scholarship in high schools a matter of distinction.

STUDENT COUNCIL Members for the Student Council, the governing body of the school, are chosen by the members of each home room. The Council meets once a week to discuss all problems which concern the school. Many of the pleasures and privileges we now enjoy in our school were brought about by members of the Student Council through our own suggestions. One fine example of the Student Council's work was getting the Panther Den started. The building of the new cafeteria was also brought about largely through the efforts of the Student Council. Another duty of the Council is compiling and revising the little book about the high school which proves very valuable to freshmen and to other pupils in selecting a course and in finding out about clubs and awards. One of the most important annual events is Award Day. This was started by the Student Council. Each year the Council spends several weeks planning and forming committees to find out who receives awards, to arrange the seating of those who will, and to set a date for Award Day. Each year the members of the Student Council elect a sponsor and Student Council officers. This year the officers were as follows: Alice Huntsinger, president; Max Summers, vice-president; Jo Ann Ault, secretary; and David Pace, treasurer; Mr. Copeland, sponsor.

Fred Tyner has acted as head usher of this efficient group the past year. The Pep Committee was organized for the purpose of creating new yells and planning the school’s pep sessions. In contrast to the former plan of having only six members on the committee this year a representative from each home room and the four yell leaders make up the committee.

THE SPANISH CLUB A new club, the Spanish Club, has been added to our organizations. The purposes of the Spanish Club are: the practice of Spanish, the study of Spanish customs—especially those of Latin America, the study of various aspects of the culture of Spain and Latin America, and the promotion of friendship with Spanish-speaking peoples. Some of the members are now corresponding with students of Latin American countries. The club is sponsored by Mrs. Records, who has taught Spanish to each of the members. This year the officers were: president. Phyllis Hiatt; vice-president, Larry Noble; secretary, Gloria Gilmore; and treasurer, Louise Bell. PROGRAM COMMITTEE The program committee scanned countless entertainment advertisements to select the best so that our auditorium programs might always be interesting and enjoyable. This committee selected entertainment of the highest and finest type. The programs which they chose for the student body this year were the kind that they thought everyone would enjoy. “The Roamers,” a group of four talented vocalists, sang music representing a crosscountry tour of America. Jack’s Xylophone Band not only presented unusual musical entertainment, but also many talented entertainers. The Latin Club and the Spanish Club each presented an appropriate program. Mr. Hazard, the Canadian artist, fascinated us all. Our frequent Chapel programs were all very beautiful and impressive. The public speaking classes gave two sparkling programs. An unexpected magician enthralled the auditorium. A fine Awards Day program climaxed the term.

It was organized by Jacqueline Guard and Barbara Hutchison under the leadership of Mrs. Sowers, the ait teacher. Alpha Rho Tau, the Greek letters which spell art, was selected as the club’s name. This club was organized for those art students interested in outside art work, such as contest entries and visits to different exhibits. The club also has plans for bringing traveling exhibits to our high school.

PROJECTION CLUB The Projection Club, under the direction ot Mr. Smith, meets once a week in the projection room to assign a visual education film to all operators who desire to show one. This organization is also responsible for the public address system which is used at all of our home football and basketball games. The officers of the club are Verlin Quick and Jim Lasley. TRAYS AND BUCKETS This organization is important, at least for the enjoyment of basketball fans. In addition to providing refreshments at home games, this group strives to develop executive ability, sales ability, and cooperative spirit among the members and to do anything to promote the best interest of the school. The present officers are: Rosemary Mc-Elwee, president and chairman of the sellers; Beverly Mort, secretary; William McGuire, manager; Bob McQuitty, assistant manager; and Miss Digel, sponsor.

During its many years of existence, it has grown into the fine organization which is now ably directed by Mr. Clifford Brugger. Much of the success of the orchestra is due to the efforts of Mrs. Zimmerman, the instructor for stringed instruments. The orchestra furnishes music for the junior and senior plays, and for the past few years has played for commencement. It has also become a factor in the community, its members having appeared on various programs sponsored by civic groups. Through its willingness to serve both the school and the public the orchestra has gained the appreciation it well deserves. SeventyMIXED CHORUS FIFTH PERIOD LABORATORY CLASS IN CHORAL MUSIC SIXTH PERIOD LABORATORY CLASS IN CHORAL MUSIC Seventy-oneBAND Our high school band was first organized in 1921 with Mr. Robert Burt as director. From that time until the present the band has been an important part of our school life. For the past two years the band has been directed by Mr. Clifford Brugger. A new attraction, the twirlers who have performed at football and basketball games and in public parades, has been added to the band. These six girls have become skillful in the art of twirling. During both the football and basketball seasons the band plays at all of the games, working up various formations and playing additional selections during the intermissions and after the game. Wherever it plays the band adds greatly to the spirit of the occasion.

There are many good reasons why we have the right to be proud of the young men in our student body who participate in athletics. Participation in football, basketball and track develops the co-operation and follow-through that make for success—not only )n the playing field but long after graduation. Through the training period and the vigorous exercise of active participation in sports are developed the wholesome, healthy men and women who are a basic asset of our democracy. By means of athletic contests not only those actually playing but also the entire student body are able to express their loyalty and pride for their school. When victory is achieved each of us feels that it was his school and his team that won it. We are all proud of that team and of the fine members who compose it. Still victory is not always possible and although defeat does occur at times, it is this cycle of victory and defeat which gives athletes their greatest lesson—good sportsmanship. This important quality becomes impressed in the minds of all athletes and without sportsmanship no one is properly prepared to live in our modern world. Yes we are proud of our athletes—of the games they play, of the men they are, and of the good citizens they will be. FOOT 4. 1. Scott Lasley—Quarterback and fullback; 2. Roland Brown—End; 3.

The only trouble they encountered was from Wabash and Marion. The team had one of the deciding factors of a winning combination—spirit. Not 3nce through their campaign were they in low spirits. Their offensive power was much stronger than was their defensive. Much of this offensive force was generated by Phil Arnold, all-state and conference halfback. No definite tragedy struck the Panthers except for a few achin’ backs and legs, or bloody noses, until the Noblesville game. It was then that they lost much of their reserve line strength when Bill Morgan suffered a broken right leg. Coach Frank Bykowski had the right type of material for a successful team and with his fine leadership and able help of his assistants, John Ward and Pat Patterson, a winning combination was soon reached. At the end spots they relied upon Dave Peters and Roland Brown, the tackles were filled with big Bud Livengood and Jack Parker. The guard spots were occupied by George Acres and “Buck” Wheatley, or Bennie Wells. Willis Fern held down the center spot most of the time. The backfield was one to be proud of as most of the “rompin’ ” was done by Phil Arnold, Joe Cannon and Scott Lasley. The signal backer’s position was ably filled by Bill Hocker. There are other boys, too numerous to mention, who were always trying to break the line up—such as Jack Cos-ton, Don Kane, Jim Acres and Jim Hamilton, but they’ll be around next season. Moe Fettig and Don Doty scarcely saw action due to the effectiveness and ability to last a whole game on the part of Dave Peters and Roland Brown, but they were there when called upon. All in all, the Panthers were something to be proud of, and W. H. S. says, “You did a big job, and we’re proud of you.” ■ Seventy-eightFRESHMAN FOOTBALL -j. ‘ 'i - Tommy Manghelli, Rex Beach, Jack Green.

VARSITY BASKETBALL The most eagerly awaited period in the school year is the basketball season. This 3rear, as usual, we had very good attendance at all of the home games, for one would miss seeing our team fight their hardest to make Elwood victorious. School spirit at all of these games was very high; and even though we were some-imes defeated, it was only because of the overwhelming odds the team had to face. When I asked Mr. Ward what he thought of the team, he replied, “I have never had a finer group of boys to work with. They were very cooperative and there was never any problem of discipline.” Each of the beys, I am sure, enioyed playing under Mr. Ward’s fine supervision, and we of the student body wish to thank him for the fine team he produced this year.

TRACK When Spring comes around each year, there is always a group of high school boys who will go to the cinder path to pursue their hopes of being a track man. Track is the most highly individual sport in athletic lines. There is no one to pass the ball; no one to run interference; the winning or losing is a personal responsibility. Last year’s Panthers specialized in dashmen, pole vaulters, and high jumpers. Among the outstanding men of the ’47 team were: Max Summers, Phil Arnold, Jack Scott, Jack Schaffner and Vemard Skinner. Because of printer’s deadlines, the track results of the ’48 season cannot be carried.

Although the Girls’ Athletic Association is a relatively new organization, it has provided a long felt need for a girls’ athletic activity.

Ralph Bohlandcr placed first among the 169 boys who participated in the county contest. In the District, our team of four boys placed sufficiently high to attend the Purdue Roundup along with the crops team and participated in the judging of dairy cattle in the state contest. This team placed among the highest teams at Purdue University and were made eligible to attend the Indiana State Fair and judge again in the State contest. Here they placed third in their class, which is a distinct honor. The crops judging team is composed of four boys who have been trained by Mr. Davis in the technicalities of judging corn, oats, wheat, clover, and alfalfa hay for quality. This year’s crop team is one of the best Elwood has ever known. The boys brought several samples to the agriculture department, and judged them by score card and comparison judging. By doing this, they were trying to acquire perfection. The team placed second in the Madison County contest held in late March of 1947. They also placed at the District Contest held at Knightstown and Richmond early in May. Their placing was high enough to warrant their attendance at the state contest for judging held at the 4-H Club Roundup at Purdue University. Ninety-oneA bN PSHUT JOHN CAMPBELL C. JARRETT, P.
