Twas '49 our ship set sail,
The sea was very rough,
Our little boat was frail,
For a journey so long and tough.
Now 'tis the year of '53,
Our boat is nearing shore,
Fine sailors now are we,
We've.conquered the sea and more.
This log we did prepare,
So that you might know,
The many things we did dare,
And the places we did go.
As you leaf these pages through,
From the beginning to the end,
May this log bring to you,
'Happy memories, too, my friend.

School Days! School Days!
Good old Forest School Days!
For some, the days are almost done
For others, the days have just begun.
Let us pause for a moment here,
With some of the memories we hold dear.
Oh, the secrets within those walls,
Romances that started in her halls.
There were parties, pals, and performanc
And besides the fun some work to do.
As time goes on, these memories will be
Far more precious to you and to me.
Let's stop and utter a little prayer,
For those who still will journey there,
And for thee, whose walls still stand
Our Forest School and its people grand.

Senior Class Sponsor
The 1952-1953 school
year has been a successful
one and many victories have
been won. A victory is an
accomplishment worth while
and can be obtained only
through the mutual endeav-
ors of individuals without
any thought of self-glorifi-
cation. heir rimary aim
must be to achieve some-
thing worth while for the
group as a whole. This re-
quires team work with the
Rroper spirit. School spirit
as been good this yearg and,
as a result, we have been
successful in the class room
work, in athletics, in the
publication of the annual, in
our class plays, in our music
activities, and in our school
parties. Our thanks to the
students, teachers, and
community for making this

On October 18th the Band went to Indiana University and par-
ticipated in the High School Band Day. It was a colorfu , interest-
A Band-Parent's Club was organized this year. They made
plans for purchasing new band uniforms. The Band was very
pleased with the new lack and Gold uniforms. In fact, the whole
community is proud of Forest's Band and Twirlers.
The Music Department chose as their annual production "Mar-
ryin Marion" by Geoffrey Morgan and Fred Rose.
The story was a typical rollicking American tale with plenty
of surefire comedy and tuneful fast-moving songs.
Up to the final lines of lyrics and music, this seemed to be a
most delightful musical comedy with the audience bidding farewell

NORTHERN INDIANA SCHOOL BAND, ORCHESTRA AND VOCAL
ASSOCIATION SOLO AND ENSEMBLE FESTIVAL
Twenty-eight members of the Forest High School music de-
partment participated in the N. I, S.B. O. V. A. Solo and Ensemble
Festival on Saturday, February 7, 1953. These pupils, who con-
stituted the twenty-six entries, brought home six sutperior ratings
and twelve excellent ratings in the solo events an six excellent
ratings in the ensemble events. This is considered very good be-
cause of the Z, 200 contestants from all over northern Indiana only
440 received either first or second ratings. This is only ZOZ as
compared to our 9372.
Havin won superior ratin s in their respective events will
entitle Dicgk Davis and Allen Miliurn both seniors, and Harold Orr
to participate in the state finals on February 21 at Butler Univer-
sity. All three boys sang baritone solos. They will be accom-
panied by Berniece Lineback, our music teacher. A
This is quite different from a few years ago. In the school
year of 1947-1948, there was only one entry, Rosalie Creagor,
daughter of a former music teacher, Orville Creagor.

HOUSE FOR SALE--HAUNTED
Miss Oletha Lenhart, spinster, is collecting true host stories
for a book she is writing on psychical phenomena. she visits the
Haunted House one weir stormy night with the object of buying it
because of its alleged ghost. She is accompanied by Edwina, her
niece, Liz her hired girl, and Zeke her negro gardener. Also
included in the party are Gracie, Edwina's bosom friend, and bi
handsome, blustery Tug Ralston, a newcomer from the city, wits
whom both girls are smitten.
Next, H1 Lowe and Snorky Snodgrass, the jealous boy friends
of the girls arrived. Then all sorts of weird characters from a
nearby carnival start dropping in, the Gypsy fortune-teller, the
snake-charmer, the tattooed man all willing to buy the haunted
house--they say--because of the house shortage.
And now the haunting starts. Everyone was convulsed at the
mad, ridiculous antics of Liz, the hired irl, and Zeke, the darky
gardener, who are both scared silly at tge weird goings on.
Finally at the peak of everybody's terror, comes the denoue-
ment and the whole mysterious business is cleared up.

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF FOREST
This information was collected from several books, pictures,
and persons, but George McAdams and Helen Huffer were our chief
source of information. We would like to take this opportunity to
The idea originated in Latin Class when we were studying the
originof Rome and its earlyhistory. The seniors inthe class ac-
cepted the responsibility for developing the early history of Forest.
The dates and data stated in this treatise are only approximate.
It is, also, impossible to arrive at an absolute certainty in regard
to the details surrounding some of the events related.
About a century ago a landscape' of woods and swamps, popu-
lated by the Miami Indians, occupied the region which is now called
Forest Township. A man named Alter from a large German set-
tlement in Pennsylvania had come into this region. Seein the
possibilities of this region, he made a deal with the Miami clgiief,
who consented to sell a large tract of the land. Alter then return-
ed to Pennsylvania and came back to this territory with an ex-
plorers' party. These Germans soon had a number of farms es-
tablished, but they were not responsible for the town of Forest.
This was officially done by a Mr. Morrison, who came from
Frankfort. The year was 1874, according to the only printed re-
cord known to exist. A town had been started earlier at the cross-
roads a mile south and a short mile east of Forest. Some say
that the name of this town was "Martinsville", and others say it
was "Mortonsville". It seems that the town had a post office, a
church, a school, two or three stores and a few dwellings. Soon
Martinsville or Mortonsville was extinct, and the town of Forest
came into existence.
Forest lay in two townships, Warren and Johnson, when it
first existed. Soon Forest was larger than Scircleville, Hillis-
burg, Middlefork, and Beard, so the residents of Forest began a
petition for a township. This new division was created by taking
a part from each of the other townships. The new township was
named Forest Township, after the town itself. Forest township,
as apolitical unit, has existed since about 1880. It had two towns,
Forest and Russiaville. In 1890, when the court house was built
in Frankfort, Russiaville wished to withdraw from Clinton County.
because of the increased taxation. They created another political
unit under the name of Honey Creek Township, and it was incor-
porated into Howard County.
One ni ht in the late 1890's the whole business section of For-
est was glestroyed by a fire of undetermined origin. The two
blocks forming the south side of the present business sectionwere
erected. Four frame buildings, which have disappeared in the
meantime, were built on the north side.
At one time there were ten grade schools inForest Township,
Union, Center, Beechwood, Vencil, Possum Trot, Iles Corner,
St. Paul, West Point, Bolsby, and one in the town. All had been
abolished by the fall of 1925, except Union, at an angle across
from the Union Church, West Point, two miles east of Forest,
Iles Corner, three miles east and about two miles south of Forest,
and Beechwood, one mile north and about one-fourth mile east.
The Forest Methodist church was created by the transfer of a
Methodist congregation from Olive Branch, a rural church, which
stood one mile north and about two miles west of Forest. A church
was located on the present site of the gym, but there seems to be
no certainty regarding its denomination. It may have been a U-
nited Brethren church. At any rate, its first congregation had
disbanded and the building was acquired by the Baptists. It burn-
ed down one Sunday morning in 1906.
In 1910 the interurban line was put throu h. The work-crew
consisted of Negroes and ltalians, hired by time Northern Indiana
Power Company. The interurban line extended from Marion to
Frankfort. Cars ran each way every hour and twenty minutes,
beginning at the crack of dawn and continuing until midnight. Its
career was short lived, for the last car made its trip in 1930.
Forest received a commissioned high school in the early
1900's. The grade school moved into the same building. The
grade school building stood on the corner where the Baptist church
now stands. After bein abandoned for educational urposes it
was used by the Baptisgs for church services, until Y917, when
the Baptist church was erected, after the old school house had
been torn down.
Forest probably had its booming period between 1910 and 1920.
The town was graced with a bank, a furniture store, three hard-
wares, a jewelry store, two barbershops, a department store
with every imaginable kind of merchandise, a bakery, a res-
taurant, a theater where the skating rink is now, a watering sta-
tionfor trains, a drug store with a registered pharmacist, a huge
livery barn where horses could be rented, two doctors, two black-
smith shops, a garage, three rocery stores, a post office, a
cement-tile factory, an undertaier, a hotel, an elaborate band-
stand, a newspaper, and a meat-market.
During this time Forest had a concert band. The men were
clad in expensive uniforms of purple broadcloth adorned with heavy
gold and black braid. On Saturday afternoons, weather permit-
ting, they would march through the town, and on Saturday nights
they would present a concert. Traveling theatrical troupes were
hired to give plays in "Mowery's Theater" on several occasions.
Movies were shown two nights weekly.
A recession began to manifest itself about 1923, and Forest
presented a very dismal appearance during the general panic be-
tween 1929 and 1933. Several houses were empty and some store-
buildings were also unoccupied. The four frame buildings on the
north side were eventually torn down, creating a barren sight.
About 1935 the town took a new lease on life and gradually develop-
ed to its present status. Filling stations were erected onthe north
side. The town is looking up, as we might say, but in all pro-
bability it will never again experience the measure of prosperity
