WENDELL L. WILLKIE HIGH SCHOOL ELWOOD, INDIANA CRESCENT 1962ALL ALONG MAIN Elwood, like many typical American communities, has a main street; and, like most main streets it is lined with churches, homes, and a school . . . Wendell L. Willkie High School. Such is the foundation of a community fathered in the heritage and tradition of "The American Way of Life." From a small farm village in 1852, Elwood has grown to a progressing town of 11, 793. Standing at the corner of Main and Anderson, one can see the ever-increasing patterns - -the squares of modern homes extending their parental influences marking the center of an active and progressive community.ALL AROUND THE TOWN5LLUCCCO .. ' - ■ a □□qin a r Mw m -mFROM 16TH TO 18TH ON MAIN The school, if properly used, can help to mold the character and personality of the individual. Within these walls friendships are formed which last through the years. One learns to cooperate with others as well as to accept responsibility along with failure. Without education we would not be able to communicate with our fellow man. The vocational demands placed upon the individual are higher today than ever before. Thus Willkie High strives to meet these demands. 7Mr. Burton gives his typing class a timed writing. Through counseling with Miss House, J. Burwell and C. Kincaid plan their schedule for their future years at Willkie. 8INTO OUR DAILY ROUTINES There is much to be learned in all of the classes at Willkie. A typical schedule might include English, a foreign language, math, science, social studies, and one of many electives. Not only are there classes in the fall but also there are classes conducted during the summer. These classes are in session long enough for the students to receive credits for one semester. If a person applies himself he can leave EHS with a well-rounded education. Genius at WORK! Anxious students wait for Mrs. Barr to unlock her door after lunch. 9ALL ALONG MAIN AND Driving to school creates a parking problem for B. Bozell. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is a recognized factor at EHS. To compensate for this there are various extra -curricular activities. There is the den on Wednesday, club and organization meetings to be attended, parties to plan and go to, and of course ball games to yell at. One of the newest activities is the Y-Community center where you can dance or play different types of games. All in all a student at EHS has a well-rounded education both academically and socially. The public library is especially handy during the noon hour. Here students catch up on their homework. Up in the air for two points against Sheridan. 10ALL AROUND WILLKIE The Latin, French, and Spanish clubs combine customs for an evening of fun. Interested parents view plans for new school at open house, which is a big event at Willkie. 11The Homecoming court is (1. to r.): Misses Susan Scea; Pauletta Burton; Sue Clouser, 1960 Homecoming Queen; Diana Usfo; Jane Marty; and Mickey Beasley. WITH OUR FIGHTING TEAM AND GORGEOUS QUEEN WE PRESENTED OUR 1961 HOMECOMING Tearfully accepting her crown from Sue Clouser is Miss Pauletta Burton. She is escorted by Gary Burton. A fall brings football season, bright leaves, and roaring chants; it also brings the memorable Homecoming. On September 16, 1961, we all recall our surprising defeat by Alexandria. Although our team was behind, it did not defeat our spirit. During the half-time ceremonies we waited to see whom the Cinderella slipper would fit. Then as our 1960 Homecoming Queen, Miss Sue Clouser, crowned Miss Pauletta Burton 1961 Homecoming Queen, the robe was placed on her shoulders for a year. 12MISS PAULETTA BURTON 1961 HOMECOMING QUEEN 13Always ready to leave when the air got a little thick was Eddie. Watching silently are J. T., Cliff, Velda, Sylvia, Grant, and Mable. CLASS OF ’62 HAD SUCCESS "Stranger in the Night, " a three act comedy-mystery, was presented by the class of '62 on April 13, 1961. The play primarily involved Sylvia Lee, the attrac- Eddie swings Nona around as Mable looks on. tive manager of a hotel gift shop, Mable Crane her business partner, and Grant Terry a newspaper reporter. The story centered around the gift shop where a murder was to take place with the victim's name hidden in one of the gifts. Eventually everything turns out all right with the victim revealed and everything safe and sound. The play was directed by Mrs. Sharp and the student director was Jack Armstrong .

T. with Velda breathing a sigh of relief. 14Confusion continues with Margaret, Miss Booth, Carla, a policeman, Miss Baker, Mr. Barnard, Jeannie, Puff, Dan, Jackie, and Roger. WITH TWO CLASS PLAYS Amid gleaming footlights and the smell of greasepaint, the class of '62 made their second effort at high school dramatics. They very successfully presented "The Perfect Idiot, " a three-act comedy by Eunice and Grant Atkinson. The play was well directed by Mrs. Barr, aided by Sue Smith. Although this was the first play Mrs. Barr had directed at Willkie High, it proved to be a great success. The play centered around a boy genius, who by a bit of bribery started a campaign to make himself the most popular boy in school. The seniors showed a great wealth of talent and thoroughly delighted their audiences with their final high school dramatic presentation. PLAY CAST Meredith Wisler--Dan Tennyson Sharon Lilly--Linda Barnard Larry Hocker--Jackie Tennyson Phil Johnson--Puff Witomski Mickey Beasley--Carla Mell Morris--a policeman Kathy 01dag--Miss Booth Patty Kiefer--Margaret Tennyson Ann Walker--Rhodora John Laudeman--Walter P.

Ross, R. Tam, and L. Huntsinger as J. Justus and C. Meyer look dumb-founded. HAY AND CORN - SADIE HAWKINS "On your mark!Get set! Go!" This was the battle cry of the senior gals at the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance held on November 22, 1961, in the Panther Den. The chase was on and all the perky fellarswere runnin' wild, up and over the ramps, back and forth on the Den floor and around several bails of hay stacked on the floor. Of course the gals were not far behind, runnin' just as fast as they could to catch their man. The thrill of the evening came when everyone purchased their kissing licenses and at the end of the chase "Marryin' Sam"--alias Kit Frazier--was waitin' at the alter to hitch all the hill-billies. Ears of corn and bails of hay provided a fitting background for the chase, and the refreshments seemed to add to the gaity of the evening, one that the seniors will long remember. Making sure she gets her man is S. Ross as she drags J. Justus to the "alter."One of the larger scenes of the Variety Show was the Indian scene. STIRRING MUSIC BEGAN VARIETY SHOW An array of bubbles and stirring music set the scene for the 1961 Panther Band Variety Show. The show was divided into three main parts: the golden era which took you back to the 1920's, the sounds of America which transported you to various places and the winter wonderland which featured a 25-foot lighted Christmas tree and was the climax to the show. The feature performers were: Mr. Clifford Brugger, Mr. Rex Jenkins, Susan Allen, Robert Doan, the Varsitonions, Dixie-land band, majorettes, and the Panther Band. Ending up the show was the Christmas scene with Mike Wilburn singing a solo.V- Co-chairmen v Pauletta Burton. May 12, 1961, was a night never to be forgotten by the class of 1962. This was the night all their dreams and plans came to life. From an idea, to a drawing, to mass confusion came Bali Hai'. All the hard work seemed a little price to pay for such a beautiful evening. Descending from the deck of a ship, everyone found himself on the misty isle of Bali Hai’. Stars filled the sky; at one end of the island was an erupting volcano and at the other dreamy music drifted out from a quaint hut. Misses Robin T am and THE DREAMY ATMOSPHERE OF Crowning lovely Miss Susan Peters is Ronnie Klein, Junior Class President.Couples take time out to enjoy refreshments in the misty atmosphere of Bali Hai'. BALI HAI’ WILL LONG BE REMEMBERED Refreshments were served by Hawaiian dancers by the side of the sea. The lighting was so exquisite that a person felt he was sitting in the moonlight. Some ventured from the seashore with their refreshments up into a beautiful flower garden lined with roses, and still others found themselves out on the terrace. As everyone present eagerly watched, Miss Susan Peters found herself seated on a lovely throne which was a pink tropical flower resting at the base of the volcano. Yes! To her and the classes of 1961 and 1962 Bali Hai' will always call. Enjoying the evening while being chaperons are Mr. and Mrs. Copeland. 190 R G A N 1 Z A T I O N S(1. to r.) SEATED: S. Smith, J.

There were deadlines to be met, pictures to be cropped, copy to be written, and a yearbook to be finished. The top three jobs on the yearbook were maintained by Verona Wesley, Editor-in-Chief, Sue Smith, assistant Editor, and John Laudeman, business manager. They did not go into this blindly, because they attended a workshop in the spring and spent two very busy weeks during the past summer at the Journalism Institute at Indiana University. We were also greatly aided by our sponsor, Mrs. Hilda Chapman. This book is a recollection of the many memories of the past year and will be especially precious to the class of 1962. 22"Who Says deadlines are fun?" asks Verona Wesley (editor) and Sue Smith (asst, editor).

Also, they have given programs for many organizations outside of Elwood. These girls hope to continue their group into next year. Willkie's dance band, the Varsitonians, was active this year especially around the time for spring proms. They were also a part of the Variety Show. They are under the direction of Mr. Clifford Brugger, who plays saxophone with the Varsitonians. Another part of the music department and one which is especially liked by teenagers is the Dixieland.

Paul Rice, a Projection Club member, shows a movie in the auditorium. 39Officers are: Tom Pearson (secretary), William Stokes (president), Jerry Hocker (treasurer), and Lou Gerig (vice-president). THE NEWLY ORGANIZED KEY CLUB This year a new club was organized. It was the first one of its kind for E.H.S. It is the Key Club, and it was sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Elwood. They carry on the service tradition of Kiwanis. Besides their regular officers they have three prospective members on the Board of Directors: R. Martz, L. Stage, and L. Hocker.

This year they introduced "red and blue" day and "dress-up" day. This helped to boost the school spirit. Most of die students observed these two events that came once monthly. Officers (1. to r.): Mr. Dudley (Sponsor), Jane DeLong (treasurer), Larry Hocker (president), Jerry Justus (vice-president) and Pat Dooley (secretary).o — rnO n Of all the different subjects offered each year, English seems to rate as the top required subject. It can become rather difficult at times and yet very rewarding. The student must take at least three years of English consisting of three semesters of grammar and composition and three semesters of literature. There are also many special approaches to the study of English. Speech class teaches students the art of public speaking, and journalism puts to work the students' knowledge of writing as in "Willikie World." Andrea Hughes receives aid from Mrs. Fugitt in English class. ENGLISH WAS NEVER MORE IMPORTANT Participating in a panel discussion in speech class are M. Wooten; J. Stout; M. Wisler; L. Henn; and R. Sparks. 44Flash cards are used in Latin by Mrs. Sharp assisted by M. Scea and G. Stevens. FOREIGN LANGUAGE IS POPULAR AT EHS Getting aid from Mrs. Colcord in Spanish class is R. Jackson and G. Burton. The echoes of "bonjour," "amo te, " and "adios" throughout the halls are sure evidence of the influence of foreign languages on our students. Ask any one of our language connoisseurs and he will tell you how much of a help and a pleasure his days spent in the study of another culture have been. Yes, our school would be very dull without the languages and their teachers. 45The DCE Club sold Panther pins this year. Shown assembling them are the members of the first period class: T. Riggs, M. Koons, B. Neese, M. Holtsclaw, N. Fleenor, J. Clabaugh, M. Nichols, B. Gootee, and R. Osborn. EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER Among the many subjects at Willkie is Diversified Cooperative Education. This subject helps those enrolled to get a head start on a possible vocation, as well as to aid them in building a sense of responsibility . DCE students, by gaining work experience, are better oriented to the problems of full-time employment than the average student. The DCE program at Willkie is sponsored by Mr. McVicker. The members of the DCE club also displayed the real spirit of Christmas this year by collecting toys for a needy family. Shown are B. Rodgers, D. Elledge, R. Towner, B. Bozell, B. Pearson, K. Brunson, D. Gillum, S. Davenport, K. Rivers, D. McCorkle.EHS GETS US READY TO EARN OUR BREAD AND BUTTER The commercial course increases each year as more boys and girls decide to enter the business world. Our high school is qualified to meet these needs. Students wanting to do secretarial work, or enter the personnel or selling field, are just a few who take the commercial course. Typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, general business, secretarial training, selling, office machines, and business law are the required subjects offered to the business student. There is also a wide variety of electives. This knowledge will enable the student to choose his occupation in the business field. Working on the bookkeeping machine are A. Wood and K. Lee. Practice sets require sound thinking as this bookkeeping class finds out. 47Greg Willnitz explains a first-year algebra problem as Mr. Smith and J. Curtis look on. MATH GIVES US ALL THE ANGLES In this day and age the stress placed upon mathematics is important to our daily living. Certain courses in high school mathematics are required in practically every field in which today's graduates decide to further their educational knowledge. More so today, mathematics and sci- ence go hand and hand in the exploration of our vast extending universe. As a result, more classes in higher mathematics are being offered at Willkie. They include algebra, plane geometry, trigonometry, advanced algebra, solid geometry, and general math courses. Mr. Manis stumps R. Chase during a second-year algebra class.SCIENCE FROM AMOEBA TO NUCLEAR FISSION To meet the increasing demand for top-notch scientists, a good solid background is a must, and Willkie is prepared to meet this demand. There are opportunities in such fields as physics, biology, chemistry, and physical science. Each one is guided by a teacher who strives to make the course both interesting and educational . Don Wisehart and M. Caldwell take a look at the shell collection before their biology class begins. Observing a chart in physics are C. Meyer and P.

More job openings have become available to students interested in this field, which has resulted in an increase of enrollment in industrial courses. The principal courses available are industrial arts, machine shop, and farm shop. Woodworking, blue print reading, mechanical drawing, electricity are a few of the classes available. The home economics department offers a capable staff plus modern equipment to our future homemakers. Sewing, cooking, child care, and interior decorating are among the selective courses offered in this department. Setting up a screen and printing programs are J. Hocker, D. Hartman, R. Nance, and J. Bene-fiel. WHETHER IT BE MACHINES OR POTS AND PANS THEY MUST BE KEPT CLEAN Hurry girls! Mrs. Tolle encourages A. Pullen, M. Moore, E. Anthony, B. Hartsock, M. Noone, B. Crouse. 51Mrs. Sullivan, using the new vision tester, checks the eyes of the underclassmen in physical education classes. OH! CALISTHENICS - AGAIN TODAY To the EHS student physical fitness should be one of Ms most important assets . To help us maintain this asset physical education classes were offered to underclassmen. Not only do these classes maintain this, but they also of- fered relief from tensions of the day. We often hear that maintaining good health is one of the basic rules in living a full life. This along with first aid, personal habits, appearance, and bodily processes were studied in health classes. Listening to a lecture is die boys' health class. 52Directing the choir is Mr. Stites a new teacher at EHS. MUSIC AND ART DEVELOP TALENTS Our music department increases in quality and quantity each year. This department includes the Panther Band, advanced choir, girls' glee club, Varsi-tonians, and the newly formed combo. Our music department is one of the most outstanding in Indiana. Every culture has its art, and the students of our high school are no exception . Colorful and clever displays in the front hall and library were just one of their projects. Without the art classes, our curriculum would be lacking. Sandra Hanshew looks over Richard Graham's shoulder as he paints. 53s p o R T S“V”-“V”-VICTORY (1. to r.) D. Usfo, P. Burton, S. Lilly, A. Walker (Polly Panther), M. Beasley, K. Oldag, varsity cheerleaders and school mascot, instilled us with school spirit. "Let’s go big team-- ve're backing you!" was the cry of many Panther fans as they watched the mighty Panthers battle for victory. This year's varsity cheerleaders were Seniors; Sharon Lilly, head cheerleader; Pauletta Burton; Kathy Oldag; Mickey Beasley; and Diane Usfo. A familiar sight at both basketball and football games this year was "Polly Panther," Ann Walker. Leading cheers for the B-Team this year were: Cheryl Lewellen, head cheerleader; Jackie Rudig; and Elaine Etchison. These gals busied themselves giving the B-Team the support they needed. Starting a possible career as yell leaders were Freshmen; Dorothy Forst, head cheerleader; Diane Maley; Debbie Hughes; and Martha Oldag. Give me a "P" was just one of the many yells put together by our Varsity cheerleaders.“VAR”-“VAR”-VARSITY (1. to r.) Energetically E. Etchison, C. Lewellen, and J. Rudig back the B-Team. "Peppy" well describes the freshman cheerleaders. They are (1. to r.) M. Oldag, D. Forst, D. Maley, and D. Hughes. 57With such shouts as "you can do it big, team, you can do it" the Booster Club supported the Panthers. BOOSTER CLUB, E-MENS, AND PEP "Let's go, Elwood!" is one of the familiar sounds of the Booster Club. Whether the score is higher or lower than their opponent during the game, the one-hundred girls of the E.H.S. Booster Club back their team all the way. The pep committee is responsible for planning pep sessions and for selecting King Red and Blue. Among their many activities this year the E-Men purchased blue caps for the varsity cheerleaders. All three of these groups helped boost the school spirit of E.H.S. throughout the year. Booster club officers are: (1. to r.)Mrs. Watson, (sponsor), Norma Hardebeck (president), and Anne Harris (secretary-treasurer). 58FRONT ROW: S. Lilly, D. Usfo, K. Oldag, C. Lewellen, N.

Fight, determination, hard work and time help to make our Panther team. They battled for every yard on the grid-iron. Again this year we had a fine coaching staff. At the helm of the "Mighty Panthers" was Coach Jim Lods. This year the team worked most of the time drilling on a new device used in football training called the "iron horse." 62We were hampered by the loss of three lettermen; Larry Hocker, Chuck Loser, and Jim Adams due to injuries. Our team sparkled while tromping over Madison Heights, slaughtering West Lafayette, and running over Hartford City. El-wood had its depressing moments when bowing to Noblesville, Alexandria, Monticello, and Marion, and while tieing Tipton and Peru in a 0-0 deadlock. The men who put the spark behind the team are Dick Merritt, Les Klein, and Jim Lods, head coach. FOOTBALL SQUAD Senior Members of the Varsity Team: (1. to r.)

Lack of experience made the difference between a good season and a great season, for the Elwood nine. With loss of only three lettermen, the future looks exceptionally bright for the Willkie team. 65Cross Country: (FRONT ROW) S. Coryell; T. Fogerty; G. Burton; D. Goings; R. Martin; and M. Hankley. (SECOND ROW) C. Robinette; B. Odom; R. Cannon; D. Richwine; and Coach Burton. (THIRD ROW) A. Gardner; D. Harting; W. Boruff; and S. Pierce. CROSS COUNTRY HAS LOSING STREAK Cross Country is not a main sport but requires endurance and ability. They ended the season with a 0-10 record. This season the losses were partially due to the loss of Ed Huntsinger. However, his position was adequately filled by Mike Hankley, a freshman. The team participated in the annual sectional, and Elwood's top three runners were Dave Harting, Alex Gardner, and Tom Fogerty. They were coached by Mr. Burton, a new coach at Willkie High. Passing an opponent at a Cross Country meet is Ed Huntsinger. 66Track Team: (FRONT ROW) B. Parker; J. Sizelove; J. Werline; R. Drake; J. Adams; J. Conners; D. Wiseheart; B. Garcia; G. Burton; D.

The track team had a better season as they finished with a 5-4 record. Larry Hocker, Ward Sherman, Chuck Loser and Tom Fogerty were able to break a twelve-year mile relay record while Ed Jones broke his own record of 11-foot pole vault. Jerry Robison qualified for the regional and the mile relay team. The team placed fourth in the sectional and fourth in the regional with almost every runner scoring at least one point. 67TffisfflSs steam- (fFlMMlT M2W)) JL | ffltireg G„ (Gaifeeir, E.

Two points are added to the scoring sheet during the Sheridan game. 70The Mighty Panthers started the season off right as they clobbered Sheridan. No one suspected that later our hopes for a winning season would be thwarted by an eight-game losing streak. After absorbing a drubbing at the hands of the Kokomo Wildcats the boys sailed through three straight opponents. The Peru game was the start of our downfall. The loss at the hands of the Tigers was followed by seven more in succession. However, half of the losses were by no more than four points. In the Holiday Tourney at the Madison Heights gym the Panthers again dropped a one-point decision to Noblesville, but our boys came back to knock off the host team. Prospects for next year look good as several underclassmen gained valuable varsity experience. While the senior members oftheteam will long remember this season , the younger boys undoubtedly look toward the future. Charlie Bock goes in for two points at one of the home games.

THE LUCK OF THE IRISH Stirring the student body up at the sectional pep session were the senior members of E Mens. Fogerty shoots against Pendleton. 72A rousing pep session, led by Jerry Justus, King RedandBlue, sent the Mighty Panthers into the Anderson sectional against the Pendleton Irish. That night a band of Irishmen subdued our Panthers 65 to 54. The Panthers could not quite penetrate the sticky zone defense thrown up by Pendleton. The backing by the student body was to no avail as the boys just could not seem to get going. Mr. Manis worked that evening as he tried to come up with the right combination, but nothing seemed to stop the Irish. This was a hard sectional, particularly for the seniors. This was the one which they really wanted to win, because this was their last. The underclassmen took the loss hard too, but they looked forward to next year.

This year was an outstanding one for them as they received their class rings, presented the junior class play, elected class officers, and selected the junior steering committee. They also played host to the Junior-Senior Prom. A new phase of their high school career has been seen by the sophomore class. They have advanced into a newphaseof electing class officers and ordering their class rings. They have seen that the year was occupied with hard work. In order to pay for the prom, they worked hard at bake sales, paper drives, and car washes. Although the freshman class is not permitted to organize, they can, however, be represented by the freshman student council representatives.

(SECOND ROW) Ronnie Klein, Robin Tam, David Alexander, and Phil Johnson.Seniors display the traditional senior cords. On September, 1958, the Class of '62 entered the halls of Wendell L. Willkie High School as "green” freshmen. Student Council representatives were Mickey Beasley, Kathy Oldag, and Jack Armstrong. Miss Robin Tam was chosen as our first Homecoming candidate. There was also our initiation at the Panther Den along with the many pranks of upperclassmen. As we started our sophomore year, we elected our first class officers. They were: Jack Armstrong, president; Ronnie Klein, vice-president; Cheryl Lewis, treasurer; and Sharon Lilly, secretary. Pretty Miss Kathy Oldag was chosen as our Homecoming candidate. Then came the winning of the Sectional. Entering into our junior year we realized that we would be a very busy class. Our class was under the capable leadership of: Ronnie Klein, president; Glenn Underwood, vice-president; Sharon Ross, secretary; and Robin Tam, treasurer. Decorating for Yogi Bear Homecoming was just one activity. Anxious juniors finally received long-awaited class rings. "Stranger in the Night’ was presented as our first class play. Cheering the Panthers on were five Varsity yell-leaders from the junior class. With the financial responsibility of the prom on our shoulders came bake sales, car washes, paper drives, candy sales, and the sale of Panther heads and buttons. The beautiful and enchanting "Bali Ha'i" summed up our junior year. The climaxing year of our high school life finally arrived as we became Seniors. As officers of our class Dave Haskett, president; Tom Fogerty, vice-president; Susan Scea, secretary; and Sharon Knopp, treasurer were responsible for our class leadership. Pauletta Burton was presented the "glass Slipper" making her the Cinderella of Homecoming. The comical three-act play, "The Perfect Idiot, ” was presented. The Sadie Hawkins party is another memory for Seniors. We also carried on the tradition of gaily decorated Senior cords and the annual Christmas tree. The Junior-Senior Prom, Senior week, Baccalaureate, and Commencement finished our activities at E.H.S. 103JACK ARMSTRONG SAUNDRA JOHNSTON To pursue his career in medicine Jack is in- Saundra's high grades and scholastic ability have led her to terested in the many phases of science. this position.

The wheel, the lever, the automobile and the space ship were all equally dependent on the inquiring mind. Progress expands with research. ■ Here at Delco-Remy, for example, our research interest was largely concentrated on automotive applications a generation ago. We could have contented ourselves with just making better starting, lighting and ignition systems. ■ But what we wanted to do was provide electrical energy for the needs of motion—all kinds of motion. At our luncheon tables these days, the conversation is likely to swing from semiconductors and transistor ignition systems to new devices for missile control or electrical power supplies for outer space. ■ We have a new ultra-modern research and engineering building nearing completion. In it, our scientists and engineers will find the most favorable environment possible for imaginative research. ■ What are the rewards of a scientific career? The opportunities are virtually unlimited. But there’s something else equally important, we think. It’s the tremendous satisfaction to be derived from contributing to human progress. ■ If you have an inquiring mind, it's a FROM THE HIGHWAY TO THE STARS Division of General Motors • Anderson, Indiana7 7 THE GOED CREST Congratulations to the Class of 62 Eiwood VENTOURA CORPORATION CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 1962 HOOSIER HOME IMPROVEMENT CO., INC.
