Our school as we know it today is built upon a com-
bination of ideals. These ideals are the culmination
of the efforts and the contributions, the visions and
the aspirations of the many students and teachers
who have entered its doors, passed through its halls,
and received its influence. On leaving, they have be-
queathed to us the will to attain still higher stand-
ards, the desire for increased wisdom, and the en-
thusiasm to keep high that spirit which is Flora. To
this heritage, we dedicate the i956 Florian.

School life is a difficult thing to put into
a package because it can have many
different meanings for many different
people All of us at Flora High School
have shared a great many experiences
during the years of our school life We
hope that you will find much packed into
this 1956 Florian that has great meaning
for you The package will last and in the
future you can open it and examine its
contents again and again
Sixty years ago when the first class was
graduated from Flora High School is
the beginning of our story Unlike to
day school then lasted only six months
ln the Class of 1896 there were four
graduates three girls and one boy These
students were Celesta Cromer Eva Drake
Emma Lyon and Merle Sandifur Celesta
Cromer was secretary to John L Lewis
of the United Mine Workers until her
death in 1930 Eva Drake Agnew is now
a semi invalid in Miami Florida Emma
Lyon taught at Flora for three years she
died in 1906 After teaching at State
Normal in Oklahoma City Merle Sandi
fur is now retired and is living in Cali
The varied interests of the students has
been manifest through the years and
the success of their endeavors has been
evident many times Being Hoosiers f
course one of the first activities we
think of is basketball An excerpt from
the 1924 Paradeisos recalls the game of
Our fursr graduating class Left to right Eva Drake Emma Lyon Merle
Sandifur Celeste Cromer
For many years basketball has been the maior
sport of Flora High School. It was introduced
in 1908 but was then considered a play-ground
game rather than an inter-school game. Only
one game was played during the first year.
During the next two years many of the schools
of the county started playing and it steadily
gained in popularity. ln these early years Floras
leading rival was Wheeling with honors about
evenly divided. At first all games were played
outdoors with backstops constructed of rough
boards. The teams were equipped very differ-
ently from those of today-school clothes or a
baseball suit were generally used in the games.
In 1910-11 both indoor and outdoor basketball
were played. The E. M. Eikenberry building was
rented. The place was an improvement over
the outside court although there were two
posts in the middle of the playing floor and
very few provisions were made for the comfort
of the fans. During this year F.H.S. defeated
every team in the county. The next year the team
was unable to secure a hall' therefore played
only outside ball.
In the fall of 1912 a new era in F.H.S. basketball
began. The Mayhill building was secured and
this made possible a larger and much better
playing floor. The seating capacity was about
one hundred and fifty. Basketball suits were worn
by the players of F.H.S. for the first time. During

flrst year and Cutler the latter year
ln 1914 the F HS team was wtthout a home
because the merchants complalned of the nonse
the boys made whsle playlng When the season
was about over the room above the water works
was secured but nt was too late to develop a
good team Basketball was at such a low ebb
durlng this season that every team In the coun
ty wuth the exceptton of Camden defeated
Flora one or more tnmes
ln 1916 an addutnon which Included a gymnasl
um was bullt to the school house Although It
looked more luke a swlmmnng pool than a gym
F H S was proud of nt and It became the scene
of many a thrnlltng battle In comparlson with
the other teams of the state Flora probably had
the best team nn her htstory Both Logansport
and Frankfort were defeated Overconfrdence
lost the Sectional Tournament Durrng the next
three years FHS was represented by fatr but
not outstanding teams In 1920 the furst County

returned wuth a tune sheepsktn trophy ln 1921
and agatn un 1922 Cutler won the champlonshnp
but In 1923 F H S was vlctorlous and this time
won a silver cup

athletes ot F H S The Communtty Building spon
sored by the Flora Community Club gave F H S

the Alumni Equipment Committee places the
gym on an equal basis with the larger gyms of
the state The building has a seating capacity of
about 1400 which makes it possible to hold
sectional and county tournaments here
As the years passed the teams steadily gained
fame climaxed by being qualified to participate
in the state finals in 1946 Flora surprised every
one that year and was the peoples choice
right up until the time they were defeated
the state finals by Fort Wayne Central The
Trester Award was won by Robert Cripe that
year After such a splendid performance Flora
was able to schedule many of the top teams in
the state such as Crispus Attucks Kokomo L
gansport and Gary Froebel When the Hoosier
Conference was formed in 1948 Flora was a
member In 1953 54 the Badgers crowned their
achievements by winning the conference cham
pionship They have also claimed the Holiday
4 Way Tourney title the last three years
Flora and Bringhurst High Schools were con
solidated in 1927 but were still under manage
ment of a school board until 1931 when the trus
tee took over There were many heated dis
cussions over the pros and cons of the merger
The Bringhurst patrons hated to loose their school
but the advantages of consolidation won out
Disaster struck on February 4 1933 when fire
demolished the school building Making the best
of a bad situation however classes resumed im
mediately by moving into the Community Build
ing ln 1935 the new building was completed
and was surely appreciated after two years of
make-shift facilities. A new addition containing
a long-desired auditorium was built onto this
school in 1950.
The Flora High School orchestra of 1929 was
The ruins remaining after the b g fre
something of which both the school and com
munity were lustly proud They won first place
at the district contest which was held in Kokomo
From there they went to the state contest at
Indiana University where they met with equal
success By participating in the national contest
at the University of lowa they put Flora on
the map in nattonal orchestra circles After
meeting with such success the first time ever
entering competition the orchestra with the and
of the Community Club and school bought new
instruments amounting to S1400 including ma
chine tympany two string bass a sousaphone
and a bassoon
ln 1941 in the district contest at Delphi the
Flora High School band was awarded first hon
ors for playing The next year they really brought
home the prize however when they walked
off with the Sweepstakes Award in the district
contest at Monon. This indicated excellence in
all respects-playing marching etc.
Organized debating was stated at Flora in 1929
and the first year the team tied with Frankfort
and Lebanon for district honors. In the triangular
tie-breaker Lebanon won. A tie with Kokomo
the second year saw Kokomo emerge victorious.
ln 1932 they were even more successful. The
team coached by Madonna Barnes included
Mariorie Niccum Minnie Lou Chittick Virginia
Hawkins and Mabel Ridenour. As members
of the State Debating League they won their
sectional district and zone debates but were
defeated in the semi-finals of the state contest
ln 1947 the Flora Livestock Judging Team par-
ticipated in the International Livestock Show in
Chicago. They were qualified because of placing

The Student Council was composed of four seniors,
three juniors, two sophomores, and one freshman. '
The following organizations were also represented:
the Honor Society, Sunshine, Hi-Y, and the faculty.
They work together under the guidance of our prin-
cipal for the improvement of our school. A hush fell
over the school on "Silence Day," one of the events
the Student Council provided for a change in school
routine. The teachers were amazed by the peace and
quiet throughout the halls. Those who did not abide
by the rules had to give a two-minute speech on
such things as "How to can dill pickles." This day
proved successful and amusing to the students as
well as the faculty. Another new. and interesting project
was "Color DayI" Those who wore the brightest and
least harmonious colors had a chance to win a free

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
For the first time a chapter of the National Honor Society
was organized in Flora High School. Twenty-four mem-
bers were initiated into the organization by the Delphi
chapter. The Honor Society members were chosen for
these qualifications: Service, Leadership, Scholarship, and
Character. Meetings were held every three weeks. The
iuniors and seniors were active members and the sopho-
mores were probationary members. Various projects
were discussed and carried out. New officers were chosen
in April for the following year. In the future, members of
the Honor Society hope to uphold their standards and to
bring in more new members.

Boys of all shapes, sizes, and description-s make up this
organization, but each has one desire-to make a bigger and
better Hi-Y. One of our protects was the collection and re-
pair of toys for Christmas gifts which would give a bit of
joy to some small child. Also many of the boys who received
toys from the Christmas grab bag donated them for this
purpose. Special Hi-Y pins and tie clasps were purchased
for the first time this year. Spectator Creed Cards were
passed out at the first home basketball game. These cards
stressed sportsmanship and proper conduct at games.

To advance from Sun Ray to Sunshine is the desire of the
seventh and eighth grade girls. Under the leadership of
Juanita Pugh the Sun Ray organization met every month.
Many proiects were completed during the year. One of
their main ones was selling crutches for the Polio Fund.
The members enioyed many social activities such as a
"Come-as-you-are" party, a Christmas exchange, and a Val-
entine party. The main ideals are to strive to meet and to
uphold the standards of a typical American girl.

The Flora chapter of Future Farmers ot America has
thirty-two active members. The local group compete in
various contests and activities on a local, district, and state
basis. The FFA. is a national organization of young men
taking vocational agriculture. The emblems ot F.F.A. are
an ear ot corn because it stands for one of the most
important crops, a plow which symbolizes the labor and
tilling of the soil, the rising sun which stands for the
rapid growth of the organization and to point the way
to a new day for agriculture, and the owl which stands
for knowledge and wisdom and therefore is the main
emblem of F.F.A.

Mondays and Thursdays during our twenty-minute break
Cbetter known as the activity periodj chorus was held.
Out of this group a select number were chosen to form
an ensemble. They sang at the following events: Art and
Garden Club meetings, the P-TA Christmas program, and
the Combined County Institute at Purdue. Mr. Maxson
had many new songs such as "No Man ls an lsland,"
"Sipping Cider,'l-Rand "Bonnie Lassie" which v
hearsed in preparation for the County Music F I held
at Camden on March s-r. Zi As the year drew to a

Last year was the first time the Florian received a first-
place rating from the Columbia Scholastic Press Associ-
ation of Columbia Universtiy. This was a great honor
for any yearbook, and we sought to uphold the stand-
ard. After the staff members were chosen, the proiect
of making a bigger and better Florian got underway.
The sales campaign was started with a special convoca-
tion given by the Florian staff. Members of the class
who bought the highest percentage of annuals in a
stated time were treated to sodas. Many study halls,
noon hours,- and after-school hours were consumed in
order to meet deadlines for the 1956 Florian.
Top: Don Collins was the television announcer on the program to promote Florian
Bottom: Editors and sponsor take a breather.

From the time that subscriptions first went on sale,
the School Daze staff has labored long and hard to
bring the news, as well as lighter literary efforts, to
you. As deadlines approached, the commercial room
hummed with activity. Finally, with production-line
technique, the pages were assembled and were ready
for distribution. The Scholastic Roto, a high school
rotogravure paper, was a bonus publication which
accompanied our paper free of charge. At the Novem-
ber P-TA meeting, staff representatives explained their
duties as well as the entire procedure in publishing a
mimeographed school paper. With last years' first-place
rating by the National Scholastic Press Association of
the University of Minnesota in mind, we hope to live
up to those standards which have been set for us.

Frank DeBruicker, our new coach, has piloted us
through the rugged '55-56 season. We have
played one of the toughest schedules that has
been known to a Flora team. Although we have
been lacking in experience, we have made up
for it by showing the fight and desire to win.
We have dropped some of our games to out-
standing ball clubs, however, we have been able
to defeat several of the tough teams that we have
been up against. We won the Holiday Tourney at
Brookston, making it our third consecutive lnvi-
tational Tourney victory. Good performance by
the Badgers made it possible to bring home a
fine-looking and well-deserved trophy. We ended
the conference schedule with a three and three
record which was considered fairly good for the
quality of the competition we met.

Badgers keep eagle eyes on the Teams scramble for the ball in the final Victorious Badgers cut down the nets at the
ball as they warm Up, seconds of the West Lafayette game, Holiday Tourney at Brookston.

We little Badgers were assigned to Assistant Coach Pitts, who has taken over this position for the
first time. We were inexperienced, but yet we showed the spirit and desire it takes to win a game.
Although we dropped some of our games, we drew a great interest from the crowds by winning
some exciting and close contests. We will be experienced for next year's schedule and give sup-
port to the team to come.

With Dick Pitts as our mentor, we freshmen turned in a creditable record for the season. We prob-
ably could have had better success in freshman basketball if it were not for the necessity of playing
on the "B" team, too. Since we are somewhat lazking in height, we must make up for it with good
ball handling and fine shooting. Among us we have some promising young ball players, and we
hope to prove valuable in future years.

Interest in baseball has been increasing and Coach
Frank DeBruicker has put forth much effort to promote
it into a major sport in the school. In the '55 season,
we dropped only one game-to Burlington by a score
of 3 to 2. We won the county baseball championship
for the third consecutive year and added another tro-
phy to our collection. We are more experienced now,
and will work even harder to bring about another

Bob Spivey was assigned to be our baseball coach this
season. Because of the experience gained in the Little
League last summer, we were quite confident and
ready for the play to begin. We were backed by good
pitching and infielding, which accounts for the vic-
torious season. Although we were defeated once, we
held our position in the county by ending with a three
and one record.
