Keiih Rose DEDICATION Our school as we know it today is built upon a com- bination of ideals. These ideals are the culmination ,:h,. 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. CONTENTS OUR STORY C oPage 7 Many parts ot our story took place in this building which was destroyed by fire.

Wi? 'ls lr 44 H- 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.

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 by Churubusco. ln 1947 the Flora Livestock Judging Team par- ticipated in the International Livestock Show in Chicago.

STUDENT COUNCIL 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 sectional ticket. Top: The old timers Cformer gradsD advised upperclassmen on college preparation. Bottom: On Silence Day, Deanna Pressler confesses that Mr. Cooke was the cause of her most embarrassing moment. f' 1 l 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. Top: The Christmas motif was used in the decorations at the first initiation of the National Honor Society.

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. Top: The Hi-Y boys sponsor the printing of basketball schedules and hang them via a human ladder.

SUN RAY 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. Top: lt looks as though Frances Scott is snitching a doughnut at the Sun Ray "Come-as-you-are" party.

Uniforms are prsesed until they could stand alone. Caps are set at a cocky angle, for this gang really knows its business. A hep- cat pep band has been setting the crowd wild with souped-up jazz. Man, they're so good they would give Count Basie a run for his money! Top: Gerald Clingenpeel leads the pep band in the school song at pep session. Bottom: "A-ten-shun!"

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 sales.

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.

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. Opposite page Left to right: Angle, Stonebraker, J.

"B" TEAM 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.

Among us we have some promising young ball players, and we hope to prove valuable in future years. Front row: D. Clingenpeel, R. Beckner, J. Thompson, B. Burns, B. Graf.

BASEBALL 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 good season.
