As one who cons at eueninq
o'er an album, all alone,
And muses on the faces of
the friends that he has known,
So I turn the leaves of BEN NU,
and there creeps into mg mind,
The memories of those old school
daqs, that I have left behind.
Apologies to J.
MARY E. lVlcCREA
To lVlary E. lVlcCrea,
whose interest and untiring effort have helped
to make our school days so pleasant and profit-
able, we, the Seniors of l928, respectfully
dedicate this Beneclictus.

Historq of the Class of '28
In the fall of '24 an army of twenty five determined youths stormed into high school.
Organizing at once with Miss McCrea as sponsor, we set to work. We chose Blue
and Old Gold as our class colors: "B sharp, B natural, but never B flat" as our
motto: and a' Pansy as our class flower. However death claimed one of our members,
Miss Pauline Symonds, much to the sorrow of the class.
'25 found us as brilliant Sophomores, rough and ready. We again organized with
Miss McCrea still sponsoring, much to our great delight. We had to lose, however,
George Fehrenbacher, Aline Mason, and Rosina Geisslemeng but added to our midst
Maxine Yeager. After eight months of sincere study, we were pleased with a long
looked for vacation.
Vacation over, we sallied forth again. This time as Jolly Juniors, twenty strong.
This year Mr. Harmeyer was chosen as our sponsor: but to our regret, he accepted a
position at Central, and so was lost to us. We were fortunate, however, for Mrs.
Bernice Karnes Hickrod assumed his place.
This was a very successful year, both in school work, and in activities. Thanks to
the aid of Miss Gladys Webb, we were able to put on the class play entitled "Cousins"
which drew a larger audience than any preceding play. This enabled us to throw a great
reception for the Seniors.
The fall of '27 finds us as dignified, and honored Seniors. When the enrollment was
taken we found that two of our members were missing, Marjorie White and Lydia-
Rahn. Determined to make the best of it, we reorganized. This time we changed
our colors to Red and White, and our motto to "Excelsior." Our class flower was
an American Beauty Rose. This year we had the honor of having our Superintendent,
Mr. E. Hemmer, as our sponsor.
We have been well represented in all school activities, which we will always remem-
ber. Now that graduation is drawing near, we are just a trifle sorry to say farewell
to our old school. We appreciate what our faculty, and fellow-students have done
for us, and to you we owe a vote of thanks.
We are as a small but mighty army ready to go forth and battle life. having only
best wishes, and fond remembrances for our dear old Fort Branch High.

Prophecq of Class of '28
Home againl It sure seems good to be home again after one has traveled all sum-
mer. But this summer has been a very enjoyable one.
Now I must tell you about my trip. It was early in May when I received a letter
from an old friend of mine whom we knew in our school days as Kathryn johnson.
Kathryn married a former Oakland City man and is now living in Chicago. She
wanted me to come and spend a month with her, so I decided to travel the remainder
of the summer.
Kathryn met me at the train. It sure seemed good to see her again. On the way
to her home we talked of the days we spent together back in Ft. Branch. She had
received a letter from her mother telling her that George Sollman had married Lydia
Rahn and was preaching out east of Ft. Branch. Imagine George as a preacher. We
laughed quite a bit about it.
While I was in Chicago a very well noted chautauqua came to the city. The com-
pany was fortunate in having with them a great singer whom they advertised very highly.
On attending this I found the singer to be Josephine Laib. I had quite a long talk
with Josephine and found that she had been disappointed in love and started traveling
with this chautauqua. But she likes her work fine. She said that she heard from Lo-
lave Brenton very often. Lolave married Tommy Haley from Mackey and is now
coaching a basket ball team in the Mackey school. Josephine saysthat coach Haley
turns out the best team in the country.
I also had the privilege of attending a basket ball game between Chicago University
and Purdue University. To my surprise I found that Jess Purcell was coaching the
Chicago team. Jess seems to be satisfied with his job and he sure is proud of his team.
The latter part of May I started on my travel. I hated to leave Chicago and
Kathryn as I had learned so much about my old friends. My route took me through
Ohio and I stopped off in Cincinnati for a while. I learned that Helen Mills was at
the head of the Music Conservatory. Helen told me that Opal Singleton- was in-the
east, and was Dean of a girls' boarding school.
I could only stay in Cincinnati a short time and so continued my journey on up into
New York. While on the train I bought a newspaper bearing these head lines. "New
York Heiress Sues Husband for Divorce." On reading this account I saw that James
Wallace was the young husband and Ralph Mattingly was his lawyer. I went around
to visit james and he seems very unhappy. He had such an easy life but what will

it be now? James told me thatiUna Jay studied to be a nurse and is now nursing in
Then I made my way southward. While riding through the country I noticed a fine,
large dairy farm and a sign reading, "Michel's Dairy. I wondered if this was the Henry
Michel I used to know and at the next station I was informed that it was Henry Michel
and his wife Muriel Shelby. I didn't have time to pay them a visitiialthough I wanted to
While I was in Florida I soon found that Joseph Laib was a very successful real
estate agznt. Joe took me to his home and there was his wife, Marjorie Stone, all
smiles. It sure seemed good to see Marjorie again. joe and Marj like the sunny
I had to be on my way so I just spent a few days with Joe and Marjorie and then
left for the west. I stopped off in Denver, Colorado, and the first thing that caught
my. eye was a large sign reading as follows, "Come I-lear The Great Mr. Lewis Lec-
ture on Prohibition." Could this be Floyd Lewis? I attended the lecture and sure
enough it was. I could hardly imagine Floyd as a lecturer but he certainly is good. He
loves his work and he seemed very glad to see me.
Then I went to I-Iollywood, California. The first person I met was Dorothy Mc-
Kean. I couldn't believe my eyes. My, how Dorothy has changed. She is now an
actress and her stage name is Dixie Trevis. Dorothy and I had lunch together and
she told me that Luetta Singleton had married some sailor boy and was living some-
where in California. Nobody ever hears from Geraldine Slinger but Dorothy says that
she is at home on the Carter farm west of Ft. Branch.
The summer was about ended and I had to get back to my work. But I never
will forget that summer of travel which brought back all those happy days which we
spent together in Ft. Branch High School. ' i .

THE BENEDICTUS i
JOSEPH LAIB-Joe was a forward on our basket
ball team. He was a fast lad and had a knack for drop-
ping' in longs excessively when needed. He is a Sen-
ior and we hate to lose him as a captain the same as
we hate to lose him as a forward.
' HARRY JOE ENGl..lSH+,Ioe was our other for-
ward who has played this year on the first five for the first
time. If Joe doesn't make any freakie shots none can be
made. He is a Sophomore.
JOHN VICKERY DELONG-Vickie was our
center who has a good eye for the basket, although he is
very different when playing basket ball than he is in
school. He has playedthis year for the first time onthe
first five. He is a sophomore.
ROY WARREN-Lefty was our running guard
who could play center as good or better. He was the head
work under the basket. Also he could drop in a long
one now and then past center. He is a sophomore.
.. - .. - .. .. - - -......-,...........-...-...4...-...-..........,........- - - - - - - - ...
HAROLD CARNAHAN-Felix was our depend-
able back guard. Nothing much is ever said about
"Felix" for he is always the same, "just a real good back
guard." He is a freshman and by the time he is a senior,
look out, "Oh ye forwards."
RONALD HOAR-Percie was our first sub as
a guard. He plays a very neat game and is very "spunky"
for a small lad. He has great things in himself if he will
just show them. He is a sophomore.
KERN HARMON-Curly was our first sub as a
forward. He is one of the fastest lads on the squad and
he has fight and plenty of it. He also has a keen dribble
and passoff. He is a Sophomore and was eligible after
JESS PURCELL-Bunco was our first sub as cen-
ter. Bunco was good on the tip off and fast on his feet.
He has been a help to the team in many ways. He was
also a substitute as forward when needed. He is a
age Twenty Thr
1 JAMES WALLACE-Jimmie was a pretty good
l player for his experience which-consists of only one year.
He was a hard little fighter and was another one of our
subs who knew the game well. He is a Senior.
' HAROLD JOE WILHITE-Mary was our last
letter man, who is a sub guard. This is his first year. We
expect great things of him, although he differs in speech
and basketball. He is a Freshman.
DARWIN STONE--True Love was a substitute as
a forward or guard. He was a nice little rough player
and he had a temper as big as any barrel. But Dar-
win, outside of that, was a good sport and handled
himself fine. He is a freshie. I
JUNIOR ROTHERT-Junnie was another substi-
tute as a forward. He nor Darwin were letter men but
just the same their work was acknowledged. Junior is not
very big and his motto is, "The bigger they are the
harder they fall." He is a Sophomore.

Mable McKee-Mac is one of the smallest girls on the team. This was lVlac's
first year as a regular. She was a fast and skillful player and handled the ball with
the ability of a veteran. Next year's team is fortunate, indeed.
Josephine Laib-Jo is our tall center and it is very seldom that ,Io goes up against a
center who gets the tip-off from her. She proved her ability as a basketeer in her
first game on the local Hoor. She graduates this year and her loss is a great one.
Kathryn Johnson-Pat is another one of our sextette. She is a very steady player.
Also besides being so steady she has an "educated toe" which she uses to advantage in
her playing. She was a real sport and proved an asset to our team. Pat, we hate
to lose you.
Lolave Brenton-Shorty was one of the mainstays of our team. True to her nick-
name she is short and this seemed to be her only drawback, as her job was to guard
the tallest, the "center," How she did it we don't know but that center usually did
very little in a game. This ends her four years of Basket Ball.

Girls' Athletics-Concluded ,
Fern Robinson-Pete was our tall guard. She was always there to catch the ball
at the critical moment! She always plays a hard game and very often she uses up
her alloted number of "bumpings" and has to finish the game on the bench. We
hope to see her in the games next year.
Pauline Reynolds-Penney has one more year on the team and great things are
expected of her. She is one of our fighting guards, that never gives up, never stops
regardless of how the score stands. She is a clever and skillful player and plays with
her heart in the game.
Thelma Kell-Kelly, our sub guard, was called upon to fill the vacancy marry
times and she proved a valuable player. She has had experience that will serve her
well and we welcome her back next year.
Helen Mounts-Kitty was a sub and this being her first year she did not get to
play in very many games. Although her smiles never failed to give encouragement to
the team. She is to be commended on her good work.
Nova Hooker-Hook played on the second team the whole year, but that was no
sign she couldn't play basket ball. She is only a Sophomore and in two more years
she should be able to make the best sit up and take notice.
Velva Harmon-Dimples was rather handicapped by her size, but she made up
the balance by her lighting spirit. This was Dimples' first year, but she developed
and learned basket ball rapidly. We expect great things from. her next year.
Thanks must be given to Ethel Newton, Ida Utterback, Louise Mills, Violet Wells,
and Lillian Harmon for their help this year in practicing with the team and being'
faithful even if they weren't regulars. More will be expected of them next year on
the regular team.
