Frankfort-on-Prairie Creek THE CAULDRON OF 1946 FRANKFORT HIGH SCHOOL . . FRANKFORT, INDIANAF R ArN KFURT-AM-MAINThe Frankfurt of the Old Frankfurt, Germany, has often been called “an old picture in a new frame.” The original plan of the city which was laid out in the early twelfth century consisted of the old Gothic buildings and the narrow streets winding in and out; the new portion was built on the same pattern. In 1152 the city became the coronation center for the kings of Germany. Since then, it gained in literary importance. Music was the outstanding art of the city. Its opera house was one of the most famous in all Europe. Frankfurt soon became one of the leading cities of Germany, in art. culture, and philosophy. For centuries she held an enviable place in the German state. When the Nazi party came into power, Frankfurt turned all her efforts toward helping its cause. Once again Frankfurt became the center of the philosophy of the country, Nazism. The Youth Movement, introduced by Hitler, was centered in Frankfurt, where youth was indoctrinated in the philosophy that the German race is a master race. Hoys and girls from all over Germany were brought there for regimentation and instruction. Because it was a Nazi center and a great industrial city, it now is a pile of rubble. The people are without work and most of them are without food. There are no schools. Boys and girls are roaming the streets trying to find food and small sticks of wood for fuel. They know nothing of social life. Behaving horribly, they dart into punched-out doorways to live under tottering walls, much like countless restive ants who have been disturbed in their anthill. Such is life in Frankfurt-on-Main today. The medieval culture of that city, influenced by the Hitler Youth Movement, is now as faint as a picture on a burned postal card blown out of an ashcan.FRANKFORT ON PRAIRIE CREEK.The Frankfort of the N Frankfort, Indiana, is a typical American town. Founded in 1826. it was then a pioneer village in the West. In 1875 it was finally incorporated as a city in the state of Indiana and became the county seat of Clinton County. Frankfort is noted for its fine system of public schools. The original high school building was burned in 1922. but a new one was soon built within the old walls. To house and encourage education for boys and girls. Central Building. Science Hall. Band Hall, and Howard Hall were erected across the street. In addition to its being an educational center for elementary and secondary school youth, Frankfort has become an outstanding inland depot for a network of railroads. When the war started, Frankfort turned all its efforts to meet the emergency. Its factories began turning out pieces for airplanes and different machines used in the war. I he schools maintained their high standards, yet aided the war effort with stamp and bond drives, paper, tin, and scrap-iron salvage drives. Former students, numbering 1.438. joined the armed forces. The youth of Frankfort has always known utter freedom in endeavor, attitudes, and speech. Cultural opportunities in the vein of literature, art, and music have been offered to all. Athletics to build strong bodies and teach cooperation and sportsmanship has been their advantage. « A wholesome, comfortable home life has encouraged them to a full social life, filled with the pleasures of dancing, laughter, and gaity. Food has always been in abundance. Never have they had to worry about shelter. And, instead of scurrying around like startled ants, they meet in their favorite “hangout” for a coke and to talk over the day’s happenings. This is America, a democracy, where the American way of life recognizes the dignity and rights of the individual. 1 his is Frankfort-on-Prairie Creek.HONOR ROLL Those Who Died in tht :e of America H illiam Adams Frank A.

Young The Young Dead Soldiers By Archibald MacLeish The young dead soldiers do not speak. Nevertheless they are heard in the still houses. (Who has not heard them?) They have a silence that speaks for them at night And when the clock counts. They say, We were young. We have died. Remember us. They say, We have done what we could But until it is finished it is not done. They say, We have given our lives But until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave. They say, Our deaths are not ours, They are yours. They will mean what you make them. They say. Whether our lives and our deaths were for peace and a new hope Or for nothing We cannot say. It is you who must say this. They say, We leave you our deaths, Give them their meaning. Give them an end to the war and a true peace, Give them a victory that ends the war and a peace afterwards, Give them their meaning. We were young, they say. We have died. Remember us. —Reprinted by permission of the author. ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★Frankfort High School's administration staff directed the school through one of the most difficult periods in history. The faculty supervised the various departments which follow in the next section. The faculty acted under the direction of Dr. Waldo ood, superintendent of the Frankfort schools, and the school board, which consisted of Mr. Lance Harland. Mr. George Goodnight, and Mr. Claude Maxson. Mr. J. C. Rice, principal, along with Mrs. Oma Heaton, dean of girls, and Mr. Raymond Rohrabaugh, dean of boys, directed the school affairs. The student body under the direction of the faculty experienced an increase of knowledge and a broadening of horizons during the school year. The faculty was encouraging, inspiring, and stimulating in their work with the students.Front Row—Mr. Dorwin Dick. Miss Marie Van Horn. Mrs. Edna Wilson. Mrs. Virginia Coats Second Row—Miss Jane Lewis, Miss Inez Nixon, Miss Louise Le Hew. Miss Doris Knox Third Row—Miss Hilda Kearns. Mrs. Melba Padgett. Mr. James Davis.

Rice, Mr. Harold Barnett FACULTY Those who have reached the top of their high school career should pause to appreciate the faculty, who have been the guiding and inspirational light of their high school years. It was to the teachers that they turned when they needed help or assistance in activities that demanded a firm hand. These students looked to the teachers’ experience and wisdom for advice when they wereFront Row—Mrs. Gladys Brandt. Miss Lorene Orr. Miss Harriett Gallup. Mr Andrew J.

Chaperoning dances, taking tickets at the ball games, sponsoring social organizations, and many other tasks were commonplace events which students expected of their teachers. Through their many successes and failures, trials and tribulations, conquests and defeats, the students have been guided into the proper channels by faculty members. It is to them that the seniors, going out to face the world problems, owe a debt which can be repaid only by following the democratic way of life, which they, without fear of retribution, have taught.CHEMISTRY If one were to walk into chemistry laboratory, he would see the students working together in pairs of two cn some kind of experiment. Each student is assigned his own desk and also his own equipment necessary for all ordinary experiments. The first semester is devoted to learning essential laboratory procedure, fundamental reactions, equation writing, and the structure of matter. During the second semester students study various elements, their compounds and uses. The program also allows for some individual study during each grading period. Individual problems may be done in consumer chemistry, chemical mathematics, chemical analysis, organic problems, and so forth. BIOLOGY As two credits in biology are required for graduation, every freshman is enrolled in the class. With the guidance of the teacher they invididuallv explore the plant and animal world in laboratory experiments by studying the collection of preserved specimens and using the many textbooks provided. Many of the spring and fall class periods arc spent in the fields with the instructor learning the names and habitat of trees, shrubs, and weeds. A collection is made by each student. Each specimen is classified and learned and the student is graded. A complete study of the human body is made by dissecting a frog and studying the parts and functions of the body.The mathematics department offers a year and a half of algebra, a year and a half of geometry, and a year of senior math. This course is of special interest to all boys who are interested in engineering. MATHI That point about Shakespeare’s plays or one of Burns’ poems becomes a little less involved when the teacher takes her book in hand and explains the finer points to the senior English class.N U w Language and custom of their neighbors to the south will no longer be a mystery to these Spanish students. The class subscribes to several Spanish periodicals, and this material is used in addition to the textbooks.I'or the annual Christmas festivities the chorus, robed in blue and white, presented a very impressive program. The main feature was a Cantata. “The Babe of Bethlehem,” sung by the girls' senior glee club and two boys from the quartet. Those who sang solo parts in the pro-oram were Mary Alyce Carmichael, Betty Schisler, Joan Anson, Ramona Thornton. Norma Lipp, Robert Parker, and Robert Smith. The chorus singing “O Come All Ye Faithful” entered from the back of the auditorium and marched in two abreast. Each carried a lighted candle and put it in one of the two candelabras which were in front of the stage.This fifth period class is typical of all the afternoon art classes since they are kept working basically on the same group studies. These students are pictured while working on an architectural problem. The art students also drew portraits with chalk of those participating in the senior class play. Each student was given a picture of the person he was to draw. These pictures were hung in the halls to advertise “A Case of Springtime.” Annually an exhibit of art work from the ward and high school buildings is displayed in the halls of Central Building.SOCIAL SCIENCEO M M E R C E Such is tiic life of a history student! Finding all the unknown places that war introduced to them can be an interesting but exacting assignment. Students in world history classes find maps and globes a welcome help. On the opposite page is a view of the U. S. history classes. High school typing classes concentrate chiefly on speed and accuracy. They haven’t even time to look up and smile for the photographer. Students use all their free time to work bonus. Typing classes have at least three time tests a week. Each student is required to pass at least one time test in a six-weeks’ period in order to pass.SHOP Vocational Shop classes operate various machines during the half-day classes. Machine, wood, and metal shop are taught and the boys get much practical experience. By far the outstanding project of the year was the erection of dressing rooms at the football stadium.HOME ECONOMICS Girls choosing a career in the field of Home Economics gain valuable experience from their training. The activities of the Senior Special Problems class included: Decorating the Sunshine rest room, planning the set decoration for the senior class play, learning to knit, and to do other fancy work. First and second year classes learned the mechanics of sewing and cooking while engaged in home relation study groups.I his year s graduating class elected Pat Rowe for president, John Cohee for vice-president, Jim Walker for secretary, and Barbara W oods for treasurer. Miss Doris Knox. Miss Kearns, and Miss Thomas were chosen as sponsors. As freshmen the class sponsored the first Friday night record dances to be held in this school. In cooperation with the war effort the class held a paper drive in ’44. Also they ordered their class sweaters in colors ot gray and red. The class won first place in the paper drive sponsored by the High Life when they were juniors. But the event of the year was the Prom. “Southern Mansion” was the theme the committees carried out. In this section are the senior pictures followed by the pictures of other classes. These students are the future citizens and leaders of this community who will associate with the less fortunate citizens of Frank-furt-am-Main.Frankiort High School '46 . . . Remember F. H. S.

Organized in 1933, the society has elected a total of 308 students to membership on the qualities of character, leadership, scholorship, and service, and a place in the upper third of the class. The membership this year was thirty. Elections were held twice; one in the fall which elected seniors and one in the spring which elected juniors and seniors. Members are governed by rules and regulations set up by the national constitution. Working with Miss Verda Knox, the sponsor, were officers, James Walker, president; Bill Stephens, vice-president; Bill Schultz, secretary; and Jeanne Long, treasurer.

During their freshman year Boyce Lucas was president, and the class sponsored one school dance. As sophomores the big event of the year was selecting the colors of their class sweaters. After considerable debating the colors of kelly green and white were finally chosen. Due to the post-war situation it was impossible for them to order their sweaters for some time yet. Also this year the class sponsored one school dance. Mr. Barnett, Miss Hinman, and Miss Bond were sponsors of the class. Class officers, top to bottom—Jack Leininger, Bob I rick, Dalton Mangis, and Kenneth Ayres. 11B CLASS Front Row—Patsy Lucas, Betty Applegate.

In this section of the Cauldron will be found a record of student activities throughout the year. So great a part did these activities play along with classroom work that they will live in the students’ memory forever. Clubs and various other organizations participated in presenting interesting and educational meetings during the year. It is only in Frankfort on Prairie Creek that freedoms such as these are allowed in such great abundance.s u N S H I N E SOCIETY One of the oldest clubs in the high school, the Sunshine Society, was organized in 1911. The society is a service club whose membership is open to any girl in the senior high school. The purpose of the society is to promote friendship and better understanding among the girls. The Frankfort chapter was the third chapter to be organized in the state. Ice cream and candy always taste better when sold by a pretty girl! The Sunshine girls working at a basketball game are pictured above as follows: Rosemary Wainscott. Jean Snell, Donna Doane, and JoAnn Ferrell. Below: Maryalice Patchett, Laura Jo Young, Barbara Pearcy, and Jean Scripture.This year approximately 265 girls were members of the Sunshine Society. A candle light initiation service was held at the beginning of the first semester for all new members. The business of the society was carried on by an extensive system of committees which were appointed at the first of the school year by the officers and the sponsor. As many girls as possible were used on these committees so that every girl could feel that she was both needed and wanted. This year the society took on a rather remarkable project. The money in the treasury and the money earned by the girls during the year was used to purchase a Hammond Electric Organ for the school. The girls felt that this gift best expressed the feeling of good will between the girls and towards the school. In addition to selling candy and ice cream at the basketball games the girls added to the treasury by sponsoring three Friday night dances. Meetings were held once each month. After the business meeting, the program committee took charge. The programs followed the outline given in the state program booklet and dealt with some subject that was of special interest to the girls. Dues of twenty cents were collected for the year. This money was used to pay the state dues of the chapter and the chapter contribution to the Riley Hospital. Last November six girls represented Frankfort at the district meeting held at Rossville. At Christmas the society continued its annual custom of putting two decorated Christmas trees in the halls. On December 21 the society was in charge of the pep session. They gave a short play telling of Santa Claus’s visit to the school. "With love in my heart and forgetting self... ” This year Miss Hattie Campbell compl eted her twenty-sixth year as sponsor of the Sunshine Society. The officers this year were: Patricia Rowe, president; Barbara Spray, vice-president; Dorothy Knox, secretary; and Barbara Woods, treasurer.H I - Y Hi-Y Club was very active this year. Mirrors that were ordered last year were installed in the boys’ rest rooms. The Hi-Y Chanters gained recognition. They appeared on programs of many clubs and civic organizations. George Campbell, a group song leader from Cincinnati, appeared at convocation through the courtesy of the Hi-Y Club. Returned service men and prominent Hi-Y leaders spoke at Hi-Y meetings. Their talks were very inspirational to the members. Delegations from the club attended Hi-Y meetings held at Terre Haute. Motion, and Crawfordsville. These meetings helped the members to improve the club. The membership was increased. Heretofore, only fifty members were permitted to belong. Members must be either juniors or seniors. Applications are received and voted on by the club. Officers who are elected each year in the spring are installed in the fall. Each month the Hi-Y Club attends church in a body. On Mother’s Day flowers were sent to the mother of each member of the club. Amendments were made to the constitution which will give future clubs a promising outlook.

Not Pictured — Jim Johnson, Ray Carter, and Jack Ewing. Student Council was composed of prefect council, a student advisory council, and a faculty advisory council. The prefect council consisted of three representatives of the sophomore class, four from the junior class, and five from the senior class. The student advisory council consisted of the president of each home room, the class presidents, and four representatives of the senior class. The faculty advisory council consisted of three teachers who were appointed by the principal. This year the council was composed of Mr. Rice, Mr. Rohrabaugh, and Mrs. Heaton. The organization has twelve groups under its supervision, including a chairman, who is a member of prefect council, and his committee. These committees functioned under the supervision of the chairman and with the advice of the officers and sponsor. The twelve committees were as follows: Auditorium, Social, Athletic, Scholarship, Extra Curricular, Campaigns, Citizenship, Publications, Public Welfare, Elections, Finance, and Impeachment. This year the Student Council sponsored six dances. Each Friday evening that an organization or class did not schedule a dance, the Student Council automatically sponsored it so the students would be assured of a place to dance. The Social committee, which was composed of twelve students, was in charge of these dances. Under the Social committee were also four sub-committees: chaperone, ticket, coke, and music. These committees each had a chairman and they functioned separately. Since this was the “money making” body of the club, it was decided to put a special teacher in charge. Mrs. Oma Heaton was appointed. Many new records were bought by this group during the year. The Publication committee took charge of the Blue Book, the school handbook. Students worked on the book during the summer in order that it might be finished by the opening day of school. This committee was composed of six students with Pat Rowe as chairman. Student Council sponsored several convocations this year. The Auditorium committee was in charge of planning the programs. It was decided to present a list of possible convocations to the clubs last year and let them choose some of the most interesting ones to be presented this year. The plan worked very successfully and it was decided to do this each year. One of the convocations sponsored by the Student Council was the Ritz Trio who brought their musical program to Frankfort on December 5. Mr. Ben Ritzenthaler, Miss Jane Haines, his assistant, and Miss Geraldine Teater, the accompanist, presented the interesting musical program. Mr. Ritzenthaler is known nationally for his versatility in playing wind instruments. He demonstrated this byJUNIOR HI COUNCIL playing the saxophone, bassoon, clarinet, and trombone. Jesse P. Robertson, the next convo sponsored by the club, was presented on February 25. Mr. Robertson, dressed in Palestine shepherd garb of Biblical times, demonstrated to the students how many of the musical instruments of olden times were played. Cleveland Grant, the last convo sponsored, presented a very interesting program on birds. The Athletic committee sponsored a drive to sell booster buttons to the student body this year. The round button was white with a blue cheerleader on it and the words, “Yea Frankfort.” Seven hundred of these pins were sold to F. II. S. pupils. Charles Paddock was in charge of the sales. Charlie, being chairman of the committee, also was responsible for the outstanding pep sessions presented this year. During the month of January a huge clothing drive was carried out under the supervision of the Campaigns committee. Raymond Carter, chairman, made the arrangements for the collection depots. He also had charge of the Infantile Paralysis drive which netted $158.25. The Public Welfare committee, with Clarence Lipp as chairman, repaired the recreation room with the help of Mr. Rice and the shop boys. A wooden board was put up all around the room to prevent the chairs from damaging the walls. The metal furniture was also mended. The Student Council presents a medal each year to the boy and the girl of the graduating class who are deemed most outstanding in allround school citizenship. The selection is made by a committee of underclassmen and faculty members selected by the Student Council. Jeanne Long was president of the council during the 1945-1946 school year. Bob Cook was vice-president and Bill Stephens was secretary-treasurer. Student government for the eighth grade was ably managed by the Junior High Student Council. Council members were chosen from their respective home rooms and officers were elected from the membership. For the ’45-46 school year Sam Triece was elected president; Barbara Witsman, vice-president ; Harry Major, secretary; and Joe Bill Clossin. treasurer. The sponsors were Mr. Wayne Gregg, Miss Edna Miller, and Mrs. Edna Wilson. The activities of the council included buying checkers for the tourneys, helping with the Red Cross drive and giving a Christmas party to get eighth grade students acquainted. The council not only helped members learn parliamentary procedure but also began the teaching of student participation in government.

The activities of the club this year were to send news letters to servicemen and women and to study mathematics and math instruments. The officers were Charles Kirkpatrick, president; Don Milne, vice-president; Jack Darby, secretary; and Bill Barnett, treasurer. To promote parliamentary law procedure was the aim of the Forensic Club. The club’s two social events were their annual formal initiation and covered dish supper, January 28, and a dance.

During the first semester it was possible to meet only once each week. This did not allow sufficient practice to prepare programs for public performance. At the beginning of the second semester orchestra was scheduled for four days each week. Two days the strings practiced alone, and the other two days the wind instruments were included. The orchestra met at the same hour as the band and used the auditorium for rehearsals. The Band and Orchestra Parents Association purchased for the orchestra white blouses in order that the group might have uniform dress. These were available for the Spring Concert. In the future they plan to purchase blue skirts for the girls and blue trousers and white coats for the boys. March 15 the annual Spring Concert was given. At this time the grade school orchestra and the high school orchestra presented a program with solos, duets, and quartets participating. The orchestra also played for the senior play on the evenings of April 25th and 26th. The string quartet composed of Beth Disinger, first violin; Bernadine Shepherd, second violin; Betty Gunion, viola; and Shirley Grafton, cello, presented programs during the school year for the following groups: Kiwanis Club, Band and Orchestra Parents Association, Junior Fin de Seicle Club, and the Home Economics Club. The quartet also furnished background music for a radio program broadcast over Kokomo and Lafayette stations. On March 23 this group competed in the State Solo and Ensemble Contest at Terre Haute. Two members of this quartet were eighth graders and two were ninth graders. During the next three years they should be of even more service to the school and community. David Friend played many violin solos in the community during the school year. These were presented at the Clinton County Teachers Institute, Kiwanis Club, Band and Orchestra Parents Association, Junior Fin de Seicle Club, Home Economics Club. Presbyterian and Methodist Churches. David also entered the Solo and Ensemble Contest at Terre Haute on March 23, as did Beth Disinger.Standing—Wanda Duncan. Ernest Owen. Anna Mae Huff.

Miss Kearns, the faculty advisor, worked out a plan for a rotating staff whereby each student had a chance to plan and edit his own page. This gave the student experience in both news and feature story-writing. This year Barbara Woods served as editor-in-chief with Jean Mei-feld as assistant editor.LATINA CURIA Front Row — Ward Edwards. Conrad Hibbitt. Phil Harker, Bill D o s s e t t. Jack Killian.

It was presented on April 25 and 26 in Central Auditorium with a double cast. The characters were as follows: Bob Parker .................. Keith Strange Mr. Parker ................... Bill Stephens Mrs. Parker ................ Barbara Coplen Mary Alyce Carmichael Betty Parker.................. Patty Aughe Sarasue Paddock Dickie Parker .............. Jim Robertson Gwen Anderson..............Peggy Wainscott Beverly Brown Joan Abernaker .............. Greta Pickard Betty Schisler Eddie ......................

Margaret Blunk Laura Jo Young Louella .................. Ramona Thornton Barbara McKinney Plainclothes Man ............... Bob Parker Miss Bright .........................Jessie Hackerd Margaret Hauser The student director was Barbara Coplen, and the faculty director was Mrs. Redmon. The faculty business manager was Miss Doris Knox. The story took place in the living room of the Parker home in the early spring. Bob was a somewhat Henry Aldrich character, who performed magic tricks to impress Joan, the principal’s daughter. He was in trouble thru-out the play, trouble which kept the audience in laughs during the entire play.The spirit that drives the team on to the end in an attempt to score the winning touchdown, the ability that drops the basketball through the hoop time and again, the endurance that is shown as the miler struggles those last few strides to the tape—these are the things that have and still are turning out champions at Frankfort. These are the qualities which have made possible four State Basketball Championships, that made possible the winning of games against great odds—yes, these are the qualities possessed bv Champions. The spirit of good clean sportsmanship, along with that never-ending fight, has been deeply imbedded in the heart of every student of Frankfort on Prairie Creek.

Under the coaching of Wayne Shockney and Howard Pace, the frosh footballers did much that had not been accomplished by other freshman teams. The team was light but what they lacked in size they made up for in speed. Because of this speed, the team used the “T” formation and did lots of passing or running trickey plays. N'o one boy or group of boys deserve all of the credit for the team was well balanced with the line doing as much for the team as the backfield men. However, some of the boys stood out among the others. The boys who stood out in the backfield were Stine, White, Shanklin, and Given. In the line Ricker, Sheets, Emery, Harker, Hodge, and Dean were outstanding. A new trophy was awarded to the outstanding player on the freshman squad. This is the Jimmy Brown award. The winner of the trophy for 1945-46 was Richard Stine, who played fullback on the team. This is the record of the team’s five-game season: FRANKFORT 6...............

The “B” team was composed of boys irom the freshman, sophomore, and junior classes. This team played a schedule that was as near like that of the varsity as was possible to arrange. Facing teams from North Central Conference schools as well as competent county teams, this year’s “B” team completed the season with a final record of six games won and thirteen lost. The entire team showed improvement with each game, but the starting players stood out in their accomplishments. The boys who played most this year were Rice, center; I rick. Leiu-inger, forwards; Ransom, Van Tylc. Ayers, guards. The season’s record was as follows: Frankfort 11 ................. Rossville 21 Frankfort 18 ................... Jackson 19 Frankfort 15 .................... Kokomo 31 Frankfort 19 .................... Muncie 34 Frankfort 19 ................... Lebanon 15 Frankfort 24 ........

Bob Irick, Carlisle Gardner Second Row—Donald Collins, Grover Smith, Bob Fudge, Tom Rice, Everett Smith, Bill Ransom, Phil RandolphBASKETBALL This year the freshman basketball team was coached by Howard Pace. The team played games both here and at other schools. Playing a total of eleven games, the frosh came out on top by winning six and four. Four of the five games that were lost were three points or less between scores. During the season all the members of the squad saw action, but the burden of play was carried by Ricker, Huffer, Goodnight, and Marker, forwards; Stine and Rash, centers; Baer, Mechem, Nice, Sipe, and Villars, guards. Although the team was rough and tumble at times, the play was generally very good. All of these boys will return next year to play on the “B” team and should have another successful season. This is their year’s schedule: Frankfort 17 ........... Jeff (Lafayette) 40 Frankfort 20 ..................... Kokomo 17 Frankfort 22 ..................... Delphi 14 Frankfort 26 ....................

Phil Harker, George Goodnight, Joe Dean, Max Emery, Mervin BaileyBASKETBALL This year the Frankfort Hot Dogs were under the direction of Mr. Dorwin Dick, who was coaching his first year at Frankfort High. This year's squad played an 18-game schedule. Of these 18 games the team won seven and lost eleven, and in the sectionals they won two while losing one. This gave them a total of nine games won and twelve games lost. The six hoys who played most of the time were Clark. Sibray, Allen, Hamilton, Green, and Miller. Stephens also was a regular until he was forced to leave the squad because of injuries. The other boys who played on the squad during the season were Pogue, Gardner, Sipe, Boso, Conrad, Gosewehr, and Ayers. This season the Hot Dogs began slowly, and it was not until the middle of the season that they began to hit their regular stride, and at the last of the year they were playing along with the best of them. With Clark, Allen, Hamilton, and Green doing most of the scoring, and Miller and Sibray playing great defensive ball, the 1945-1946 team began to shape up into a good tourney team. It was at this time that the Hot Dogs lost to a fine Rossville team. This is the record of the 1945-1946 season: Frankfort 28 ...........................

Tom Rice TRACK After all of the excitement of basketball was over for F.H.S., and the first signs of spring weather rolled around, Mr. Dick, also our track coach, immediately began to organize a complete new track team for the ’46 season. About forty boys responded to the call for this year’s track candidates, but of course this number was reduced when the varsity squad was chosen. The prospects for a good team were excellent this year. On the squad were a few of last year’s letter-men, along with some who participated in many of the ’45 meets. Among these were Tom Rice, who placed third in high jumping in his sophomore year at the State Meet held in Indianapolis. Tedford, a veteran shot-putter of last year’s squad, along with Rash and Stine, showed good signs of a keen competition with other teams in the state. Best prospects for the hurdles were Boso and Blickenstaff, both of whom made a good showing in the first meet. In the dash events, Richard Ricker, a freshman this year, showed great possibilities of making F.H.S. a good runner in years to come. Other top dashers were Fuller, Paddock, and Rush. The relay teams were well composed with Fuller, Paddock, Tedford, Rush, Blickenstaff, Pogue, Rice, and Boso carrying the batons for F.H.S. Sipe and Boso were top pole vaulters for the squad. In the broad jump, Rash, Thompson, and Schultz used their top efforts to give Frankfort a good representation in this event. The first meet of the season was with West Lafayette. Other meets were held with Lo-gansport, Jeff of Lafayette, Delphi, and Fowler. Frankfort also participated in the Kokomo Relays, Attica Relays, North Central Conference meet and the Central Indiana meet.Tedford gives the boys a workout in calisthenics for a warmup at track practice. They take many different exercises at every practice to keep the muscles of their bodies in top shape for the meets. This picture shows the hoys drilling for a quick take-off when the starting gun is fired. Many races are determined by the quick, accurate start of its contestants, which is one of the main factors in racing. fw %| Outstanding track men for the Blue and White were Richard Ricker, a freshman whose 53.4 quarter won the sectional. John Robison and Bob Boso qualified for the State meet in the mile and high hurdles. Pictured here are Jimmy Pogue, a 2:08 half mile, and Tom Rice, whose best high jump was 6 ft. 1 in. Tedford is shown practicing correct position for the tossing of the shot-put. Correct form is a main factor determining the distance that the heavy metal ball is thrown. Tossing the shot is quite strenuous and requires great skill.GIRLS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION The Irish Lilt, one of the more strenuous types of folk dancing, was presented by a group of eight girls. The Highland Fling, a Scottish folk dance, was given by four girls in Scottish costumes. Pictured here arc Bonnie Varner and Rosemary VVainscott. The shrill blast of the whistle immediately draws the attention of the girls in the blue-clad suits to their leader. After taking the roll. Miss Lewis or Miss Lei lew started the class by a marching drill which was followed by a series of exercises such as push-ups, squat thrusts, and deep knee bends or dancing. The girls this year learned the basic steps for tap dancing, besides learning the folk dances of many different countries. Resides this education, physical education provides mental relaxation and creates good sportsmanship and team spirit in competitive sports. The goal for this year’s physical education classes was the gym exhibition. On April 12, 1946, in Howard Hall, the girls’ physical education department of Frankfort High School presented to the students and public a demonstration of their various activities. The finale was a sports parade pageant demonstrating all the great American spo»ts in which girls and boys partici- pate.School life in Frankfort didn’t end with the bell at four o’clock. Projects, clubs, dances, parties, games, luncheons, hobbies, skating parties, and recreation of all varieties kept the halls resounding with the clamor of busy, happy students long after the last class-room door had closed. School life mirrors the life of the community. Responsibility, leadership, character forming, and hard work all played a major part in the every-day life at school. Students learned to cooperate with each other while participating in these various activities. Dancing was one of the most frecpient and important of these activities. It brought the students in contact with each other and helped them to have a better understanding of human nature.S C H O O Upper Left—Halloween conies but once a year and to celebrate this occasion Janet Kemp had an informal party. Pictured below are the girls who were present. The boys were helping to take the pictures. Along with dancing and refreshments there were of course a few Halloween pranks.

They are: Jeanne Long. John Cohee, Mrs. Heaton, and Gloria Goodnight.S C H O O LIFE As soon as the noon passing bell was heard, there was a general rush for the daily line-up at the school cafeteria. The cafeteria was under the general supervision of Mrs. Chester Pitman. Besides having charge of the cooking and buying, Mrs. Pitman assisted Mrs. Gladys Brandt in making out the menus. The book-keeping was in charge of Mrs. Virginia Coats. This year several new improvements were made. One of these was the new dishwasher. Also, this was the first year that Mrs. Pitman had adult assistance. Her assistant this semester was Mrs. Eileen Roth. Only grade A lunches were served in the cafeteria. To be classed as type A, the lunch, which might be hot or cold, had to be complete with meat or meat substance, a vegetable, and a fruit. It also provided from one-third to one-half of the days’ nutritive requirements. Since the food cost more than the student paid for it, the government reimbursed the cafeteria for the difference in cost. SCHOOL LIFE Through her pleasant and interesting way of teaching. Miss Hutchings has taught many students of the eighth grade to love and appreciate good music. She explains thoroughly to the students the life of the composer, the history of the times and of the country, and the story of the recording —the artist or artists who make the recordings—connecting all these points in every way possible and thus enabling the students to fully understand the music being played. For so many years, the eighth grade took more or less of a back seat when it came to convocations. But for the first time in three years. Miss Hutchings made the eighth grade well noted for their many convocations, and thej' most certainly did not take a back seat—far from it. The convocations consisted of chorus work and group singing led by Miss Hutchings. Different students of the eighth grade entertained with their personally chosen musical selections. These gatherings proved to be very successful, and it is sincerely hoped that they will continue in the coming years.SCHOOL LIFE A Sunshine Tea was held April 24, 1946. General chairman of this tea was Fat Leininger. The first tea, which is held annually, was originated approximately ten years ago. It's given to acquaint the mothers with each other and to give Miss Campbell and the officers a chance to meet them. Several times a year, it is customary in all the Spanish speaking countries and in every home however humble to have a nativity scene. These scenes are usually worked out very elaborate. Mrs. Heaton instructs the Spanish Club officers who were: President, Harold McMurtrey; Vice-President, Don Milne; Secretary, Dalton Mangis; Treasurer, Laird Jacoby. On December 21, 1945, the Sunshine pep session was held. It was in keeping with the Christmas spirit. This was the first time a school organiza ion had ever taken over a pep session. The presentation of two girl yell leaders was the climax of the pep session. These were the first girl yell leaders in the school’s history.SCHOOL LIFE Office girls, the secretariat of the school. Misses Bonnie Smith and Martha Greene, arc well trained and very efficient in the art of office management. They take care of all office and school correspondence, check the school attendance, help students work out their programs, mimeograph tests for teachers, prepare the school bulletin, take all incoming phone calls and answer a million and one questions asked by students who, with a little thought could answer them without help from anyone. Those who attended the unique Coronation Ball given by the High Life staff elected Charles and Sarasuc Paddock, who are twins. King and Queen. Two boy and two girl candidates were nominated by each class and the voting was held at the dance. Climaxing this original “dress up” dance was a Grand March led by the King and Queen while the orchestra played a medley of college songs. The Big Broadcast of 1946 was held on April 5. The Broadcast was sponsored by the F Club under the direction of Mr. Raymond Rohrabaugh. The student directors who assisted Mr. Rohrabaugh were Jeanne Long and Jean Scripture. Keith Strange was chosen Master of Ceremonies. This was the tenth annual Big Broadcast.
