Almost every one of these 741, although nota one would admit it, had been anxiously awaiting this moment since 3:31 p.m., Friday, June 1,--three hot, humid, months ago. Of this total there were 226 bright and shining freshmen who tried desperately to keep out of the path of any one of the 160 seniors who just happened to be around every comer, eager to greet them with a hardy, "Well look, another one." The other 355 was made up of 166 juniors, who were not to be classified as upperclassmen, and 189 new sophomores who were no longer the little green freshmen. All were quite busy either trying to re- member the combination to their locker, or if they did remember, cleaning out the mess which they just did not have time to do the last day of school. But the excitement of this year had just begun, for there were still 180 busy school days ahead of them Here we see a few of the 741 students after they have entered the doors of the school eager to begin their first busy day at Will lue I-hgh 3 :fi t 3 I s.

If you miss one, there's sure to be another along soon . Actually, MEN ARE LIKE STREET CARS was the name of the humorous play pre- sented by the Junior Class on April 28, 1956. Jan, a sixteen year old girl and the star of the play, described herself as "Besides being almost a blonde with a milky white complexion who knows how to wear clothes, I am of a naturally kindly disposition." How- ever, she seldom forgot her class motto which was "Ev- ery Girl for Herself." Jan has a line which she claimed, when used cor- rectly, worked all the time. This line could be used to help tonguetied girls like her cousin Joy get a boyfriend. But, when Joy applied the line to Jan's boyfriends, Jan wished she never had invented the line. The play en- volved an entanglement of comical incidents. Mr. Brown directedthe play, and Larry Myers assisted him. The entire cast at the dress rehearsal. , l j ti ' ca- 4ff?f7.,f" A. 4?

One laughable situation followed another in "Take Your Medicine", a farce in three acts which was pre- sentedby the 1957 senior class on November 23, 1956. The play revolved around Bill Jackson, a college professor, which meant he really could be called "Doc- tor," and his fiance,Angela Warren, who had a wealthy cranky uncle who liked medical doctors but was strong- ly prejudiced against professors. When Angela brought Bill to meet Uncle Henry at the hospital and introduced him, Uncle Henry thought he was a surgeon . . . and no one corrected him because he promised to give Angela and Bill 350,000 for the first life Bill saved. JohnBess, Jonathon Puckett in the play, and Richard Harney, acting as the cranky uncle, lead the play to a Dodson proves adiificult patient for the head nurse and rela tives. Cast Henry K.

This honor was bestowed upon Miss Sandra Beasley, a pretty senior, by the junior class president, David Car- mer, as he presented to her a crown and a huge bouquet of roses.

The three familiar initials D. C. E. represent Diversified Co-operative Education, a program recently introduced into our school. Students, by sharing their time between school and work, learn easily by ac- tual experience how to solve the difficulties arising in commercial relations. This worthwhile course has proved itself to be a valuable asset to our educational system.

With no exceptions to previous years , the Crescent staff is one of the busiest organizations in Willkie High. There is always copy to write, pictures to take, lay-out to arrange, and deadlines to meet. Also typing and proofreading is an important factor in producing a good yearbook. To finance the Crescent the business staff has to work very hard get- ting as many ads as possible.

Under the guidance of Mary Records, the editor-in-chief Richard Hamey and his industrious staff comb the classrooms, corridors, and Den to secure vital information for publication. Several new articles have been introduced this year, among those are Fads and Fancies and Career Comer.

Culture in Two Ways Strike Up Our educational system would not be complete Without the music departnient. Through music stu- dents can express themselves, boost the athletic teams, and promote a cultural side of school life. The seventy-six members of the band, led by Mr. Brugger, presented many programs on the football field, during basketball games and at special musi- cal concerts throughout the season. The marching band executed precisioned maneuvers while playing for parades and half-times. The concert band along with several solo numbers, performed equally as well. 4 F ls' 7 iff The Band The pep band and dance band both being new this year, work very hard at nightly practices. The pep band substitutes for the concert and marching bandg the dance band plays forWi11kie High dances as well as for out-of-town school activities. Another new attraction to the band is the feature twirlers, Winnie Shaw and Marianne Swenson. 8 S Wy? - Se cg f Left to right: Karne Dooley, Amiie Orbaugh, Carolyn Brewer, Kathy Riggs, Ann Kincaid, head majorette, Dixie Clark, Dorothy Helping, Ann Wolf.

Jerry participated in the 880 yard run and Marvin participated in the broad jump, high jump, 440 yard run and mile relay. Track, as a major sport in Wendell Willkie High School, advanced in popularity last year as a result of many contributing factors. A new and m ore difficult schedule made track a more interesting and spectacular event at Willkie High. A bigger and b e tt er talented group of men that ever turned out for a track season in Elwood was another success of track. Last, but not least, Mr. Bollinger, last year's track coach, was perhaps the biggest contributing factor of all. As a result, the best track season was recorded at Wendell Willkie last year.

These newcomers always have one strike against them as soon as they enter high school, and thatis because they are freshmen. They have to be very good sports to be able to accept all of the pushing around they receive from upperclassmen. Going up the "Down" stairway and down the "Up" stairway and being in wrong classrooms are the usual characteristics of freshmen. They have the makings of very promising students of Willkie High. ur us We shmen " ff? A ak F Xa fir? sis, 4 f-:snip 5-x...i..,,"e W1 rf!

The Junior class has certainly been one of the busiest in school. First, Homecoming had to be planned in a hurry and although they did not have the honor of sponsoring the queen, they had a very lovely candidate. Decorating for the prom was another project well done by the entire class. The Juniors also made a fine showing in all phases of athletics this year. The election of officers this year gave Lendall Mock the unique privilege of being president of the class for two consecutive years. All in all, the Juniors were really busy people all year. ut usy -tl-uniofs .1 -'- X OJ' - l - J aff full ul' -e-,J 35' .X ,gin lun 10' ..-J' "7 Hr 4 f rv' 1 e .--fr Q X C7 .av 4-0 47 Junlors Donald Alumbaugh Darlene Amos S andra Armle Judy Barley Dav1d Balser Ronald Beasley Jerry Beeman Bob Blckel Tom Blckel Carol Borst Sue Bourff Robert Bragg Carolyn Brewer Larry Brewer Carol Brobst George Burdsall Allen Clark Larry Clymer Rxchard Coates Manon Cole Dav1d Cooper Marvm Coryell Lo1s Cox Ramona Cox Judy Cum Lmda Crosswarte Sandra Hayes Carl Danner Martha Darrow Tom Davxs Anrta Day Judy DeLong Soma DeVaney Roberta Dlcke Charles Drake Lmda Duckworth Dav1d Evans Jerry Everlmg Charlotte Faulstxck Mrchael Fowler Beulah Galbreath Ida Gardner Ronald Garret Rosahe Garnson Larry Gerencser Marcxa G oodnch R1chard Gross Barbara Hahn 0 . bv ,, ii L I pa - 4, ,fa 5-A A , . - - -a v fs? . - F Y rm Lf' . ,ay 1.-jp 7 ,, - 4 ,iz - A' Q 'V' -6' , I N 5 ' ' B VY 'il '.

Representatives from this class could be found in nearly every phase of school life. On the gridiron, on the basketball floor, on the cinders, and on the baseball diamond, the class members excelled. In the classroomsthey were outstanding. They were one of the few classes to have two candidates chosen as Homecoming Queens and two chosen as Track Queens. These last few years have been fun for all, but plenty of work went along with the enjoyment. We all hope that thistime spent has successfully prepared us for the future.

The Long-Awaited Sectional Crown Elwood went wild! The moment the final gun went off the fans charged out on the floor in joyous, exuberant bedlam. Amidst cheers and hurrahs, the coach and team members were hoisted onto shoulders and paraded throughout the gymnasium. Back in Elwood thousands flocked to the school grounds, waiting with eager anticipation to greet and congratulate the team. Horns blared and whistles blew long into the wee hours of the night. The next two days were filled with activities in prep- eration for the forthcoming weekend. Store fronts were redecorated with red and blue, slogans adorned the win- dow, and automobiles galore boasted streamers and signs to boost the Panthers to victory. With two more games to play, Elwood returned to the Wigwam. The Panthers defeated Highland 69-54 in the afternoon, and went on to outscore Frankton 57-50 that night. Elwood had won its FIRST SECTIONAL. Again Elwood rejoiced. Hundreds of people surround- ed the huge bonfire at the baseball field to celebrate the victory. The crowd then went to the gym where the coach and other community members gave short talks praising the team.

The forty-one years of tears and heartbreaks diminished into nothing with the supreme happiness of this one blissful night, brought about by a handful of wonderful boys and 1 great, great coach. Elwood's First Regional Try The Elwood Panthers, accompanied by a caravan of 225 brightly decorated cars, joumeyed for the very first time to ButlerField House in Indianapolis to participate in regional la . P The Panthers slewthe Dragons from New Palestine 80-68 in the fast, exciting aftemoon game. The Elwood fans were jubilant and confident that 1957 would be the year when the local team would win two crowns--the sectional and the regional. The evening of March 9 the tension was high. The Cripus Attuck Tigers, the defending state champions, took an early lead and although the Panthers played hard and tried their level best, they could never quite overtake their opponents. The game ended at 78-68 score. It was a per- fect game--both teams played beautifully. Forward Ronnie Beasley chalks up two points for the Panthers against the Cripus Attucks Tigers. x B w 1 1 V' .1 1 x H x S K! N N , Af I , Krx K , I I . . ' V 'x N W'- 4' xl .' ' f 1 A A , .
