Way back in '37 a group of scared first graders started on a long Journey:
Among the shining faces were Judith Pruitt, Peggy Arnold, Gene Deweese, Rachel
Lisby, Vera Ross, Noble Tharp, and Kenneth Carpenter. This group, with the
exception of Kenneth, who lived a few months in Quincy, continued through the
twelve years of school in Fillmore school.
Thomas McNeil, the wizard of Oz, joined the rowdy group in the fourth
grade. That year Gene Deweese played Santa Claus, to the high school in a
Christmas play. Gene made a fat, jolly Santa!
In the fifth grade everyone seemed to be bad nkiddies.n Mr. Buis, the
teacher, had his hands and corners full all the time. Wilma Wilson, and Ethel
and Don Thompson joined the group and proved themselves ready to be in on all
the mischief, they kept up with the rest of the group.
The first class party was enjoyed by this group while they were in the
sixth grade. Everyone felt grown-up, but they didn't act as if they were any-
thing but brats! A treasure hunt climaxed the afternoon. The prize was a big
bunch of oranges which the winning side enjoyed-much to the other side's
The next fall they took the dreaded, yet longed for, journey upstairs.
After acting like chickens, who had lost their heads, for a couple of weeks,
they learned the routine.
Miss Meredith had the pleasure C?J of being the first to tame the class.
As helpers the class chose: Thomas McNeil, president, Judith Pruitt, assis-
tant, Vera Ross, secretary, Kenneth Carpenter, treasurer.
On April 6 and 7, the home economics girls gave a tea for their mothers,
senior girls, and women teachers. The boys drooled for a week!
Then they advanced a tentative step into the eighth grade. Kathleen
Kendall entered from Greencastle this year.
Miss Thomas, who later became Mrs. Goodman, was the sponsor, and with her
help were chosen: Ethel Thompson, president, Mike Alexander, assistant, Jud-
ith Pruitt, secretary, Gene Deweese, treasurer, Thomas McNeil, reporter.
Then the Wgreenn stage. There were thirty members of the class this year
and from th m were chosen as officers: Marvin Miller, president, Gene Deweesq
assistant, Wilma Arnold, secretary, Peggy Arnold, treasurer, and, last but not
least, Anita Selsor, reporter. Mr. Smith had the honor C?J of taming th m
during the year. '
On Sept mber 2l, the sophomores deciding the freshmen were du b, and
wanting to get revenge, initiated them. That night they shook in their shoes
and almost lost them! Later on, a weiner roast was really enjoyed.
On the fateful day of November 27 they had their very first high school
party. Most of the evening was spent in playing wink and by the members stuf-
fing themselves on sandwiches and cokes.
Noble Alexander, Wilma Arnold, Harry Custis, Madonna Goss, Pat Henderson,
Roland Neier, and Florence Pell joined the ranks from Center, Anita Selsor,
the redhead of the class, came from Spencer.

SENIOR HISTORY, Continued
The Cardinals from the class were: Roland Neier, Gene Deweese, Don Thomp-
son, Noble Tharp, and Kenneth Carpenter. Kenny played on the baseball team,
too. My, they were proud to be on the team!
Mrs. Davidson worried with the group their sophomore year. Roland Neier,
president,. Lloyd Nichols, assistant, Bob Rigdon, secretary, Don Thompson,
treasurer, led the class in their activities.
On September 27, the sophomores get their revenge and showed the freshmen
they were even 'greener' than they thought.
On January b, they gathered in the gym to do justice to their sophomore
class party. They did!!!
In the county contest in algebra, Fillmore won first as a team, Wilma
Wilson won first, Ethel Thompson, second, individually.
Then the next Sept mber they grew a little more and were juniors.
They breathlessly got their class rings. For days everyone held hands-
the only really good chance, and the only good reason they ever had!
Mrs. Goodman was stuck with them again while Roland Neier, president,
Kenneth Carpenter, assistant, Judith Pruitt, secretary, Ethel Thompson,treas-
urer, Thomas McNeil, reporter3gave her moral support.

Wilma Wilson, Kenneth Carpenter, Thomas McNeil, Pat Henderson, Roland Neier,
Ethel Th mpson, Noble Tharp, Peggy Arnold, Noble Alexander, Anita Selsor, and
Vera Ross were the characters. The plot centered around the bookstore in a
hotel and the person who was to be murdered. No one knew who it was until
Grant Terry, a young detective, solved the mystery. Mr. Paul Pruitt directed
Kenneth Carpenter, Roland Neier, Noble Tharp, and Don Thompson were the
Cardinals from the class, they really 'shone' since there weren't any seniors
on the team.
The class was greatly saddened by the death of Marvin Miller. He and
Dave Waltman were killed in an automobile accident in Coatesville. .
The climax of the year came with the Junior and Senior reception, held in
the Wabash Room of the Terre Haute House. The theme was that of a circus and
it brought much fun in the course of the evening. The orchestra kept everyone
dancing until midnight.
In the county contests, Wilma Wilson tied for first with Betty Ratcliff
of Bainbridge in typing, Rachel Lisby won first and Madonna Goss, second, in
shorthand. As teams, Ethel Thompson and Wilma Wilson won third in mathematics,

the gym. The decorations were holly, mistletoe, streamers, and candles.
Everyone danced on everyones' 'barking dogs' and had to say, 'Excuse me!'
about every five minutes. Several learned to dance, though. Punch, cake and
candy were served later. The orchestra had many pretty dance pieces and every
one enjoyed it very much.
January 22, the Fillmore Cards made history by winning the Wabash Valley
preliminary fro Roachdale. Among the proud Cards were Noble Tharp, Gene
Deweese, Kenneth Carpenter, Don Thompson, and Roland Heier. At the Terre
Haute semi-finals they won their first game but lost their second.
In the annual D.A.R. good citizenship selection Ethel Thompson was chosen
as D.A.R. representative from Fillmmre High School. The class chose Ethel Thampr
son, Judith Pruitt, and Rachel Lisby. From these three the faculty elected
Ethel Thompson by a very close margin. The D.A.R. is chosen for dependabil-
ity, service, leadership, and partiotism. Jeanette Tippin, from Bainbridge

On February 2b, 25, and 26, the Fillmore Cards played in the Sectional

the team. They lost their second game in the Regional, however.
The senior boys--Noble Tharp, Kenneth Carpenter, Roland Neier, Noble
Tharp, Gene Deweese, and Harry Custis--received awards at the basketball sup-
per given in the boys' honor on March ll, in the Fillmore school house. Ethel
also won an award. After supper a magician entertained with tricks.
On March 18, the seniors sponsored a St. Patricks Day Hop in the Fillmore
gymnasium. The gym was decorated in the traditional green with white trimming.
Everyone enjoyed everything, from dancing to refreshments.
Three senior girls--Wilma Wilson, Anita Selsor, and Vera Jean Ross--went
to the county contests to represent the advanced typing class. They won sec-
ond as a team.
A guidance conference was held at the Greencastle auditorium on March 21.

or this coming fall, Those who went from the senior class were: Ethel Thomp-
son, Rachel Lisby, and Judith Pruitt.
On April 2h, Baccalaureate Service was held at the Methodist Church. The
twenty seniors were attired in suits. Reverend Robert Robinson was their
speaker and gave a very interesting talk. The high school chorus furnished
Thursday, April 28, the seniors gathered together at the Christian Church
for what would probably be the last time. The girls wore white dresses, the
boys,suits. Dr. John Haramy was the speaker of the evening. An ensemble from
the Lyons Music Company of Crawfordsville presented several enjoyable selec-
tions. The twenty seniors proudly received diplomas to signify that they were
graduates after twelve years of hard toil for them--and the teachers.
On April 9, the Alu ni Banquet was held at the Fillmore school house.
Several attended and all had a nice time, especially the seniors since this
was their first year. It is hoped they all may be there in years to come.
Another high-lite of the year was the junior and senior reception, held
in April. All the seniors who went enjoyed the evening and thanked the jun-
iors for their last prom.
The group, including seniors, teachers, and others, left for a nine day
trip on April 30, at 6:00 a.m. They saw Washington, D.C., Annapolis Naval
Academy, New York City, Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls, and Canada. Happy
but tired they returned home on May 8. Those who were missing were: Anita
Selsor, Patty Henderson, and Noble Alexander.
This ends their history for now, but it is hoped that their future his-
tory will be marked with success and outstanding events. It is also hoped
that future years will be as happy as the past twelve years have been for them.

One lovely spring day, a friend and I were walking down an old country
lane. It was the end of April, a time much loved by tired students who are
ready for vacation. Although we had graduated many years before, our thoughts
had returned to old Fillmore High, and we were discussing our friends and old
class mates. Just then, we spied what seemed to be an old junk pile, by the
side of the road. Out of curiosity, we stopped. 'What is that?n my friend
asked, pointing to what seemed to be an old teapot. We walked toward the ob-
ject, and picked it up for closer inspection.
nMy, but it's dirty,H I remarked, and proceeded to rub the dirt from it.
At the same moment, a dark cloud immediately descended upon us, and when
it had cleared away, a little man stood before us. -nWhat is your wish?n he
asked in a quiet voice.
My friend and I went into a huddled conference. We agreed that we surely
had found Aladdin's Lamp. NI know what we can requestlu My friend turned
back to him, and said, nShow us the members of the class of 'h9!U
WSo it shall be,N he answered.
The next thing we knew, after a rush of wind in our ears, we were stand-
ing in front of Sonny Alexander, in his office. Before we could say anything,
a man in a uniform with the words, Sonny Side Trucking Company, came in. "Mr.
Alexander, the load is ready to go. Will you give the final 0.K.?N he asked.
Sonny signed the papers, then turned to us. HOne of my best men,N he
said. NI am going to put him in charge of my Omaha office, soon.n Yes, Sonny
Alexander had come a long way from truck driving for the Fillmore Elevator.
We were just ready to ask him a question, when there was that rush of
wind in our ears, and the next thing we saw was a lovely, white country home.
UGo up and knock,N we were instructed. We did as we were told, and who should
open the door, but Peggy Arnold--Oh, pardon me, I mean Girton. Peggy told us
that after graduation, she worked as typist for a firm in Indianapolis. How-
ever, when the- Marines landed, she gave up that job, and took over another
one--that of homemaker and housewife.
HWhy don't you go see Wilma Wallace next?n Peggy said, when we told her
that we couldn't stay long. She gave us the directions, and we were soon
walking up a long drive, which led to a large house, surrounded by trees, and
a beautiful lawn.
A maid opened the door for us, and told us that Mrs. Wallace, the fonmer
Wilma Arnold, would be down soon. Wilma came in, and we talked for awhile.
She told us that she and Irvin were married the summer after graduation, and
they started a cattle fann which is now thriving. Just before we left, the
school bus stopped, and deposited Irvin, Jr., a dark, curly headed youngster,
who bounded into the house and headed for the refrigerator.
Indianapolis was our next stop, for there, we were told, we would find
Kenneth Carpenter, who coaches a very prominent team in the city.
Luckily, we found him at home, and he was happy enough to tell us of his
ascent to his present position. Upon graduating, he entered I.U. to come
through with flying colors. We met his wife and also his five year old son,

who already was practicing foul shots in the back yard. Kenny said he wasn't
sure just where we'd find Harry Custis, but he supposed around Fillmore some-
where, so back to Fillmore we came.
Sure enough! We found him! By the way, does anyone know of an eligible
girl who would like to marry a well-established farmer? Harry said he had
been looking for the past eight years, but to no avail. If you do, contact
We had no trouble at all finding Gene Deweese. Everyone knows what a
great actor he has turned out to be, but we wanted to find out just how it all
came about. So we turned toward Hollywood, and in a matter of seconds, we
were standing in front of his dressing room. He let us in and gave us his
story. Gene started his career as a professional loafer, but his work was in-
terrupted when a talent scout saw him loitering on a corner in New York City,
and signed him up as a stand-in for Gregory Peck. Junie, upon hearing the
news, immediately rushed to his side. But, when she met Greg, she switched
her affections. Gene is still a bachelor.
To see Madonna Goss, we returned to Greencastle, and went directly to the
hospital. She was on a special case and couldn't see us im ediately, but we
waited. We knew that she had taken nurse's training at Indianapolis, and, as
Madonna told us later, was offered the position she now holds at Greencastle.
Although she isn't married, she pointed out a good looking young doctor that
has been dating her for s me time.
Wasson's, our next stop, was where we found Patty Henderson. Quite a
career girl, we discovered! Starting in as a clerk, she worked her way to her
present position, the head of the purchasing department. Patty is happy at
her work, and the people working under her say they couldn't have a nicer
we had no idea at all where we would find Kathleen Kendall, but our guide
took care of that, and we found ourselves in Kathleen's living roam. She told
us that 'Skippyn gave her no peace until she consented to marry him, so now
she is ssed in her home, husband, and two lively boys.
nHo your hats!n our guide told us. nThis next trip is a little dif-
ferent.n e did as we were told, the wind rushed past,whistling in our ears.
When we finally stopped, we looked at one another in perplexity.
WWhere are we?N we asked.
'China,W our guide answered.
we were going to question him further, but just then whom should we see
walking toward us, but Rachel Lisby! She met a young minister at Butler, who
was taking post-graduate work. In the course of time they saw quite a lot of
each other. Upon completing their work, they were married and are now doing
missionary work in China.
After another breath-taking ride, we found ourselves again in the United
States, and in the city of Washington, D. C. Our next stop was in front of a
tall building, which contained Thomas McNeil's office. We were directed to
his office, and upon entering, were met by his secretary. Not until she was

convinced that we were old friends, did she let us see him. Thomas told us
that he had attended DePauw after receiving a Rector scholarship and had
graduated in 1953. He now has a job with the government, working to develop a
peace-time use of atomic energy.
We found Roland Heier, Susie, and the five little Neiers, all boys, sit-
uated cozily on a farm north of Fillmore. Roland is busily engaged in his
work as county agent, and Susie is kept busy separating the youngsters. Fill-
more fans have high hopes for the future, when the five Neiers will take their
place on the basketball team.
While still in Putnam County, it was suggested that we call on the former
Wilma Wilson, now Mrs. John Danberry. we found th m living in Greencastle.
Wilma, who started in a finm as bookkeeper, still holds her job, while John
works in Indianapolis. John plans to start his own business in Greencastle.
We quickly recognized the city of Indianapolis as our next stop. Our
guide led us to one of the city's well known department stores, where we found
Florence Pell working as a model. She was just ready to leave work, so we
left together, and found a quiet eating place where we talked over old times.
Florence didn't act too happy, so we tried to cheer her. Finally, she told us
her trouble. It seems that one day during a fashion show, a handsome and
eligible millionaire caught her eye and chanmed her into accepting a date.
They were getting along nicely, when he suddenly disappeared! We walked back
with her to the store, and on the way, met Don Thompson. He said he had been
looking for Florence for he wanted to ask her some questions.
We found that he was working on the case for Florence. As an F.B.I.
agent, he had access to more fields of infonmation, and he said that he was
progressing nicely. He hoped to find the fellow in a very short time, for he
said he was sure it was a kidnap case, and that someone just wanted to get his
Upon completing their business, they turned back to us, and we talked of
happier things. Don told us that he was married to a lovely young girl, and
that they had a two year old daughter. His home, he said, was in Washington,
but his work took him all over the country.
After seeing such a complicated situation, we were happy to return to
Fillmore, where we found Ethel Thompson teaching in the school. Upon gradu-
ating from State Teachers' College, she decided she liked the home town best
of all, so she accepted the position of algebra teacher. But that's not all!
She also is a house-wife. You know Ethel--she never could resist a dimple and
a smile. Well, she married one of her students, and now is helping him
Next we found ourselves in an entirely different atmosphere--that ofthe
wide-open spaces, and the oil country. We were standing in front of a
beautiful, country home, our guide told us to go up and knock at the door. A
butler met us and asked us whom we wished to see. UAsk for Noble Tharp,n our
guide instructed us. We did so, and were finally conducted into a large room,
a library obviously, for the walls were lined with books. Noble was busily

engrossed in the latest novel, but he jumped up with a shout of delight when
he saw it was someone from the home town. Naturally, we were curious as to
how he had come so far in so short a time, so he told us. Being of the adven-
turous spirit, he decided to go west after graduating. One day while explor-
ing creeks for fishing possibilities, he noticed an oily substance on the
water, and decided to investigate. Yes! it was oil! Now, he is the head of a
large concern, and is living in one of the show places of America--the home he
built for his wife when they were married.
UWhom will we see next?W we wondered, we settled down for the ride.
Our guide soon led us into Marshall Fields of Chicago. We were instructed to
go to the beauticians department, and there we found Vera Jean Ross,in charge.
She told us she had studied under Pierre LaRue, the famous beautician from
Paris. She is doing quite well, and is happy at her work.
By this time we were quite accustomed to the methods by which we would
suddenly arrive at some destination, so, after this visit we just settled back
and soon were in an office. We were rather surprised to see Anita Selsor--
Whitehead--walking toward us, for we expected to find her in a farm home. She
told us, however, that she was working with Ted, who has his own program on
the radio now. They have been married for some time, and, as Anita told us,
are now busily engaged in building their new home.
'Well, just one more visit,n our guide told us. WAnd do you know who
that is?U '
Wwhy of courseln we answered. NWe haven't seen Judy Pruitt yet.n
Whoosh! And the next thing we knew, we were on an airplane which was
somewhere over the Atlantic. WWhy are we here?W we wondered, but just then we
spied Judy, sitting by a good looking gentl man.
uWell, helloln She greeted us and asked us to come over. we found that
she was buyer for a New York fashion store, and that she was on her way to
Paris to have a look at the new spring fashions. Judy told us too, that she
graduated from Purdue, where she met Baron von Castle. They seemed to hit it
off all right, but after two days of married life, she found that he was a
fake. In her travels all over the world, perhaps she will find someone who is
more satisfactory, anyway.
Once again we were whirled away, but almost immediately we found our-
selves walking along that peaceful, country lane. nWhy are you holding that
dirty old teapot?U my friend asked me. I felt a little hazy. I looked down
at it and then up at her.
WI don't know,n I answered, and gave it a toss. We continued on our

JUNIORS COMPLETE THAT UNEXT TO THE LAST' YEAR
In September 1938, twenty-nine m mbers of last year's thirty-one sopho-
mores came back eagerly to Fillmore School. June Thomas was not among the
group as she had moved to Greencastle. However, there was a new member,
Wilborn Kendall. Lloyd Nichols was also placed on the class roll. Before
'Christmas, the class lost two members, Dorothy Kelley, who quit, and Lloyd
Nichols, who left for the army.
On September 17, the juniors were especially happy because the long-
awaited class rings had arrived. Hands fluttered all day!

officers: president, Wilborn Kendall: vice president, Norman Custis, treas-
urer, Coleen Phillips: secretary, Dick Jones: reporter, Rose Ellen Ruark.
The last weeks of September wereA busy ones for the juniors. They had
a magazine subscription drive and how the sales flew! Their goal of 5700 was
reached and passed. The 'Sad Sacksu sold more subscriptions than did the
'Hep Cats' and were guests at a party given by the losers. Christmas cards and
wrapping papers were sold, also.
On March 10, the class play, nThe Boarding House Reach,' was finally pre-
sented. Due to the illnesses of two members of the cast, the play had been

Nichols, Donna Bailey, Russell Harcourt, Coleen Phillips, Beverly Huber, Mar-
lene Newkirk, John Charles Sears, Geneva Dozier, Wilborn Kendall, Leon Arnold,
Dick Jones, Noble Sutherlin, Betty Eastham, and Rose Ellen Ruark. Noble Tharp,
a senior, took the part of a detective since Bill Long was not present.
The pride of the junior class were the boys who were members of the
Cardinal team. They were: Leon Arnold, Russell Harcourt, Fred Girton, Dick
Jones, Nonman Custis, Noble Sutherlin, and Maynard Miller.
On Friday, March 18, the school paper staff was selected for l9h9 and
1950. Members of the staff will be Leon Arnold, editor: Maynard Miller,
associate editor: Joan Cunningham, business manager: Mary Alice Nichols and
Bill Long, editorial writers: Dick Jones and Rose Ellen Ruark, advertising
managers: Donna Bailey and Betty Eastham, art editors: Coleen Phillips and
John Sears, sports editors: Marlene Newkirk, feature writer: Geneva Dozier,
exchange editor: Beverly Huber, departmental editor: Wilborn Kendall, circula-
tion manager: Fred Girton and Norman Custis, mimeograph operators.
On March 21, three girls from the class won individual and team honors in
the county typing contest held in Greencastle. Beverly Huber won first: Rose
Ellen Ruark, second: and Joan Cunningham, third: as individuals. They won
first as a team.
The climax of the year was the junior-senior reception which was held at
the Deming Hotel in Terre Haute on Saturday, April 23. The whole group became
'Forty-Niners' to c mmemorate the 100th anniversary of the historical 'Gold
Rush' of l8h9.
In'their next and last year, the group look forward to many new fields to

SOPHO ORES HAVE BUSY YEAR
Q ? Q X- -92?-W
Eighteen 'silly sophomores' entered high school in the fall of 'h8. On
the thirteenth of September, Dorothy Everroad increased this number by one,
and it remained nineteen until January 21 when she withdrew.
It was on September 10, that the sophomores had their chance to get even
by 'taking it out' on-the freshmen at initiation. The freshmen were forced to
eat eyeballs Cskinned grapesl and other odd things. Also the freshmen had
the biggest shocks of their lives. Ham salad sandwiches, cokes, and potato
chips were served as refreshments.
With the assistance of Mr. Davidson, the class sponsor, the class elected
the following officers: Donald Ruark, president, Stanley Smith, vice presi-
dent, Jeanne Tharp, secretary, Norris Webster, treasurer, and Joyce Boatright,
A skating party at Hazelwood near the first of school was much enjoyed by
all. Everyone, who didn't fall down, had fun skating. All drank pop for re-
At the class party on January lb, weiners, potato chips, candy, and cokes
were served. The group thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and games which follow-
ed. The party lasted from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.
On February l, the sophomores gathered in Room L, and without a quarrel
or trouble, they selected their class rings.
Now as the year ends, they are happy to give their corner of the study
hall to the freshmen. Good luck, Freshmen!
Thanks are due
To the following few.
Johnny Bob Zeiner was sure a hard worker,
He wrote his class history and wasn't a shirker.
Joyce Boatright and Jean Selsor did slave
And to this, our annual, their history gave.
The junior class history wasn't easy to write,
But Mary Alice Nichols wrote it all right.

'GREENW FRESHMEN RIPEN
Twenty-nine ngreen' fresh en gathered in the halls of Fillmore High
School on August 27, l9h8. These included the old group plus one, David Car-
rico from Cathedral High School in Indianapolis.
On September 10, the sophomores, in a ceremony called initiation, shocked
the new freshmen Qwith the aid of a six volt batteryl into the realization
th t they were new full-fledged members of Fillmore High School.
As guides, the class elected Shirley Sue Merritt, president, Jimmy
Walton, vice president, Joyce Arnold, secretary-treasurer, and John R. Zeiner,
reporter. Mr. Smith was the class sponsor.
Of the twelve boys in the class, five--Gary Newman, Max Zaring, Herschel

team in basketball. Joyce Ellen Arnold was elected yell leader.
November 10 was the date of the class party. It was a success, and
everyone had a delightful time.
After a full year, the freshmen have definitely Wripened' and are all
ready to replace the soph mores next year.

SENIOR CHORUS HAS BUSY YEAR
The senior shorus is composed of advanced singers in high school. This
year it included six boys-Noble Tharp, Roland Neier, Thomas McNeil, and
Wilborn Kendall, tenorsg and Kenneth Carpenter, and Donald Thompson, basa
Alto voices were Jeanne Ann Tharp, Mary Ann Cash, Marlene Newkirk, Cornelia
Sears, and Linde Shipman. The sopranos were Donna Bailey, Jean Selsor, Joyce
Boatright, Audrey Walls, Barbara Kelley, Joy Ward, and Betty Lou Lawson.
During rehearsal time, which was the first period in the morning, there
never seemed to be a lack of amusing incidents to break the monotony of drill
and practice. The group started the year with vocal exercises and an exten-
sive analysis of Tschaikowski's Nutcraicker Suite--both from the standpoint
of the music and the composer.
Religious numbers were presented at the Christian Church revival. During
the Christmas season the chorus entertained at the County Farm, and climaxed
the evening by carolling at various homes in Fillmore. In spite of the brisk
winter air and a little car trouble, a fine time was had by all,-with candy
and cookies offered at every door!
Between acts of the junior play the chorus again perfonmed, singing three
semi-popular numbers. Later in the spring a choral program, which featured
popular, classical, and novelty selections was presented. Baccalaureate
music culminated the year's activities.
