SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
e, the "sophisticated" seniors of Garfield High School, started on our career as a united
group in the fall of 1941. Being unorganized until late in the year our activities were hamper-
ed and we spent most of the year adjusting ourselves to high school life. ln December a suc-
cessful Christmas party was held in the hall, and in the spring the following officers were
elected for the year 1942-43: Pete Varda, president: Bob 1-lemeier, vice-presidentg Shirley Ham-
rick, secretary: Louise Paitson, treasurer: and Miss Latta as our class sponsor.
Back again in September, 1942, we started on an enjoyable and profitable year. Be-
sides supporting the Student Council, Victory Corps, and Red Cross drives, we enjoyed varied
social activities. As a starter we had a skating party on February 26 at the Third Avenue
Rink. In April we celebrated the first with an appropriate party, and again on the twenty-
third we enjoyed a "Sweet Sixteen" Party.
The year 1943-1944 began with the restoring of a Garfield tradition, the Royal Purple,
under the direction of Miss Becherer. Alex Balu, presidentp Dick Nicoson, vice-president:
Dorothy Pickett, secretary: and Warren Brewer, treasurer, proved successful executives. ln
April the popular junior show was called the "Manhattan Manhunt." june brought the
annual junior party and the social event of the year, the junior-Senior Prom and banquet held
in the Mayflower Boom, june 3, with Fred Cizek's orchestra furnishing the music.
At last, in the fall of 1944 we attained the long-awaited title - seniors. Our officers were:
pesident, Pete Vardag vice-president, Barbara Abbott: secretary, Marilyn james: and treas-
urer, Stuart Chestnut. The senior class play, "Family Reunion," was successfully presented
November 1, with a capacity audience attending. Other activities included a sock dance in
the gym, December 5, and the senior Christmas party, December 22. The january seniors
culminated their graduation week with commencement at Woodrow Wilson, january 17. Sen-
ior talent was again displayed in the senior revue held on February 7. A Shamrock party
was given March 16 in Lange Auditorium for seniors and their guests. Almost before we
knew it, june graduation activities were at hand f a picnic, senior breakfast, baccalureate
and finally commencement in the traditional formals of Garfield.
As the end of our four years at Garfield draws near, we wish to express our sincere ap-
preciation to our sponsor, Miss Marie Latta, and the faculty for the patience they have shown
and the help they have given us. May we bear proudly the title - Garfield alumni.
LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
e, the Class of '45, of Garfield High School, having attained the feeble old
age of four years, declaring that we are of sound -mind not acting under the
influence of red F's swallowed from the hands of the faculty, are now ready to
depart-from the cruel, cruel world, bounded' by the walls of this noble institu-
tion. We hereby declare this to be our last ,will and testament, summarily re-
voking all previous documents of like nature witnessed and signed by us.
We do will and bequeath:
To the school - tBeing of particularly generous nature, we feel that we
cannot be governed by past classes in limiting our bequests to a single article.l
a juke box, purple and white striped with a gold eagle inscribed on the speak-
erp a telephone booth so that future students of Garfield may not suffer as we
have by having their conversations censored: pencil sharpeners, not pencil
chewers: better sports write-ups in the Terre Haute city papers.
We do will and bequeath:
To our class sponsor - Miss Latta, another class with the ability to talk
its way in and out of anything and everything.
We do will and bequeath:
To the faculty - Our deep sympathy in the loss of such an exceptional
class with the hope that they will bear up well under the strain.
To the Class of '46 4 The headaches, the heartaches, the pitfalls of being
To the Class of '47 -- Money! CThey have looks and brains.l ,
To the Class of '48 - Immunity from picking up the bad habits of seniors.
To the janitors 4 Some new brooms to sweep out the old "dirt" left by the
Class of '45.
We do will and bequeath:
To the new senior president - The traditional polka-dot shirt.
To Mr. Kehrt -4- Another Wabash Valley Championship team, this time
with FIVE All-Valley players.
To Mrs. Sankeyf- Success for her new textbook.
To Pat Welch - Matt Burns' allaround ability as an entertainer.
To Miss Ross - A saw to cut her dead timber.

THE CLASS PROPHECY
ood afternoon, ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience. This is sta-
tion WBOW broadcasting the dedication ceremonies of the new Garfield.Sta-
dium, a dream in the mind of former coach, Donas Dischinger, which today
becomes a reality. Our thanks to Ioy Abbott, maker of Abbott's King-size
cigarettes for donating the money which makes this program possible. This
afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, you are going to listen to one of the most un-
usual broadcasts of a football game ever heard on the air. Instead of telling
you about the game, we're going to tell you about the spectators. Aside from
being the fiftieth annual battle between the Garfield Purple Eagles and the
Wiley Red Streaks for the bronze turkey, today is homecoming for the class of
'45. lt has been seventeen years since the class of '45 received the title of
Garfield Alumni and we are glad to welcome them back.
You might be interested to know that Coach Pete Varda informed me just
before we came on the air that the Garfield fellows are in top condition and that
victory for the Eagles is certain. Since there are still a few minutes before the
kick-off, let's listen to Frances Thomas. "Drink Coca-Cola, the only drink that
makes every pause the pause that refreshes. Remember, Alyce Adams, the
dietitian at the Union Hospital says Coca-Cola is good for you."
It's time for the kick-off, ladies and gentlemen, and here come Bettie Io
Smith and Ioy Wright in their helicopter with the ball. They're flying low over
the field - they're dropping the ball - and there's the kick-off.
Now Matt Burns, who was recently voted the most popular radio star, will
take you down into the grandstands to talk to some of the class of '45.
"First of all let's get the officials lined up. Rudolph Cseszko is the referee:
Wilbur Adams, the field judge: Donald McKee, head linesman: and the umpire
is none other than Gene Stokes - the shirt is beginning to get a little ragged.
Take a look at the covers of the programs. They were designed by Barbara
Cronk. There's Norma Haxton, girls' athletic director: and her assistant, Char-
lotte Snow: Mary Ann Holmes, dean of girls: Madonna Burns, social studies
teacher: Marilyn King, who took Mrs. Richmond's place: Henrietta Sorenson,
physics teacher: and Rebecca Shedd, the registrar: sitting down near the fifty
yard line. Right behind them are Bill Gregory, the dean of boys, and Charles
Nickles, who is back at Garfield since he is the only one who can manage the
stage equipment in the new auditorium.
There is Dorothy Keelor who designs shades for Revlon, and Mary Scrog-
gins, star of a new dancing show on Broadway. Speaking of dancing, I heard
that Geneva Killion won the dancing marathon, remarkable at her age. Shirley
Hamrick, the new truant officer, is checking up to see if everyone is here. Here
comes Ruth Carnes and her husband, Pat Hayward, with their twins. With
them is Louise Paitson, who just finished a piano concert tour of South Amer-
ica. Look at the beauties coming in. Marilyn Iames, Virginia Thomas and
Margaret Kieth are all Powers' Models. And there's Margaret Church, star of
M. G. M. and Dorothy Pickett, famous clothes designer, with her seamstress,

I UNIOR CLASS HISTORY
he juniors may well live up to their pronounced declaration of being jolly for that is
indeed what we are. But we may also live up to the title of ambitious because in that too,
we shine. just to prove it to those who fail to believe, behold our progress for this year.
We stopped the football rolling by giving a dance right after the game with Robinson:
all who could walk and crawl came. We knew that after this dance, success was just around
the corner. We had a little trouble, however, finding which corner it was, but at last we dis-
covered the right one. Proof of this was the Turkey Trot which followed immediately after
the Turkey Day game, November 23. '
Although we tied for the game, we didn't tie for the most beautiful float and queen. Our
contribution toward beauty was june Boyll. Need we say more?
The junior class soon received the honor of publishing the school paper, The Royal
Purple. This was made a success like all of our other things by our sponsor, Miss Dorothy
Becherer. She has juniors on her fingers and on her toes and we'll love her always wher-
ever she goes. The Royal Purple was very popular and very gladly received when those
certain Fridays rolled around. Our staff worked hard and were rewarded by a banquet held
in their honor.
The class rings arrived and we're not sure who was more pleased - the juniors who
got them or the ones to whom they gave them,Vanyway, at last we had ample proof that we
belonged to the Class of three-year-olds.
Then a few of the stars who had been watching our progress decided they wanted to
share our glory so they dropped down. Thus was formed the "Star Parade." This too was
an example of our initiative, and mighty pleased we were over the success. The date for this
Startling revue was Wednesday, March l4.
Our events for the year were closed by a banquet and prom given on june 2 in the
We should like to thank all who have supported us and have helped us in our events.
We have worked through this year, and we leave our place for the next year's students. May
they have as much fun as we and may they live up to being "jolly juniors."

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
e, the class of '47, entered the halls of dear old Garfield in the fall term of September '43,
over 100 strong, and quickly gained the reputation ot one of the flashiest freshmen classes
ever to enter these stately portals.
To Miss Helen Reitzel we gave the honor of the position of sponsor for our class and we
also chose class officers for the following year. With the exception of a few unusually green
blunders made by no few members of the class, this was all of importance taking place during
our freshmen year.
We came tripping back to school, ready and willing for work C?l in the fall of '44, We
now became the Class of '47, lnc. lDon't worry, nothing new was added. "lnc." just sounds
more dignified, and, people! do we need dignityll
With our newly gained rank as sophomores, we decided to take life seriously for a while
- at least long enough to enter whole-heartedly into the various school organization and war
programs. The sophomores also had their share of glory when two of the class members
played on the Wabash Valley Champs team. Too, we were the class with the best rating so
far as honor roll was concerned.
The outstanding beauties of the class were well represented when Pat Smith was chosen
as our attendant to the football queen.
We decided the next way to make history for our class was to make money. iAn un-
usual accomplishment for ANY classll So we did, at a Christmas Party given in the lower
hall on December 21. However, money wasn't the only thing gained at this party. The soph-
omores turned out full force and a regular brawl was had by all!
ln the spring along with our spring fever, we had another party in the Lange Audito-
rium. This party was a little on "the shabby side" and was appropriately called the "Shab-
by Shamblesf' The sophomores dressed up for the occasion in jeans and plaid shirts. So
happily ended the second year of our long-to-be remembered climb to the summit of gradua-
tion in '47.
l-lere's hoping that next year as "jolly juniors," we shall be able to turn in as credit-
able a performance as Cwe think? we have this year!

freshmen, along with a representative from each home room, started its year's work under the
following leadership: Madonna Burns, president: Bob Iamison, vice-president: Charlene Beres-
ford, secretary, Rudolph Cseszko, treasurer: and Miss Kelly, sponsor.
Our major accomplishment of the year was drawing up rules concerning the activities
of the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, and after passing the approval of the student
body, they became a port of the Student Council constitution.
The council presented a film play assembly in order to make money for service around
Garfield, did our share in all salvage drives, worked with and contributed to the Red Cross,
and backed the new first-aid station.
JUNIOR RED CROSS COUNCIL
he Iunior Red Cross Council Was organized last tall under the sponsorship ot Miss Kelly.
The council was made up ot the representatives ot the first-period classes and the following

Virginia Combs was elected to serve as President of the Vigo County lunior Bed Cross.
The work of the Garfield Iunior Red Cross has been mainly to assist with salvage drives.
One ot the big projects tor the year was that of giving gitts to soldiers ot Wakeman General
Hospital at Christmas. The money Was obtained by having a "tag day." When the pupils
contributed to the drive they were given red and green tags. The amount received tor this
protect was 338.
On Valentine's Day a drive was made to obtain money to give to the National Chil-
dren's Fund. The slogan ot this drive was "Have a heart." Each contributor received a little
lacy valentine to wear. The amount collected at this time was approximately 335. We gave
32.50 to the Senior Red Cross and 350 to the National Children's Fund.

The service committee has been very active this year. At Christmas the Blue Tri sent a
box of gifts to a girl at the Riley Hospital in Indianapolis. Some girls rnade favors for Wake-
man Hospital, and others sold Tuberculosis seals and stamps downtown. Books were also
collected for Torner House Library.
Garfield Blue Tri as a whole has donated money to the Community Chest, World Fel-
lowship, Glasses Fund, U. S. S. Terre Haute Library, and Red Cross War Fund. '
The Ways and Means Committee has worked hard to provide sufficient funds for the
treasury. During the football season the girls made and sold pom poms and lapel pins. Our
most steady source of income has been the selling of candy at noon in the halls of the school.
Several girls attended a tea at the Y. W. C. A. at which Miss Boss, foreign secretary
from Syria, was the speaker.
Vanita Ramey, a very active member of Blue Tri, participated in the Christmas Eve
broadcast and the Y. W. C. A. Review. She has since moved to California.
The programs for the regular meetings were quite interesting and have shown the result
of careful planning.

he Girls Cabinet, organized five years ago by Miss Grace DeVaney, consists of four sen-

with worthy projects for the school. We, the Girls Cabinet of 1945, have tried to continue the
cabinets good work.
Again this year, the Girls Cabinet sponsored the big and little sister program for students
entering Garfield for their first tirne. We provided each new girl with one of our own books,
"So You're a Freshman." These books were revised by two of our members this year. This
book, as proved in the past, is a great help to the new girls.
ln addition to this worthy project the girls sponsored a dance called "The Iinx" on Friday
the thirteenth and "The Hatchet Hop", which was very appropriate for the month of February.
Both dances were enjoyed by the student body and were highly successful.
A new venture this year was remembering each member of the faculty at Christmas
time with a beautiful holly corsage. We hope that this will become traditional with the cabi-
We, members of the cabinet, feel honored and privileged in serving in this worthy or-
ganization and in doing so, helping our school.

he various groups of Garfield's Music department have had a very busy, as well as a
very successful year. Consisting of band, orchestra, glee clubs, and choral club, it has ac-
complished much during the past school year.
The band, under the direction of Mr. Gilley, has added enthusiasm to pep assemblies
at school, and to the many football and basketball games at which they played. It has con-
tributed greatly to Garfield's spirit.
The orchestra, under Mr. Gilley, played for the senior class play and various scholastic
activities. The students have been working very hard and their group is progressing splen-
The glee clubs have gained in popularity and have had an increase in enrollment.
Their beautiful arrangements, combined with hard Work and skilled guidance, give promise
of a bigger and better music department.
The choral club has had a very busy year, furnishing programs for school assemblies
at Garfield and several other schools, including Woodrow Wilson, Otter Creek and Clinton,
singing for service clubs, many churches and other organiaztions.
Winning for the second consecutive year, a first division rating in the Indiana State
Music Festival proves the quality of the choir as Garfield's most outstanding musical organ-
As a result of its performance the choir has built up a reputation as a Well-organized

job of living up to that motto in the producing, acting and staging ol plays this year.
The club activities opened last September with a pot luck supper, followed by dancing
in the lower hall. Meetings began in earnest by the end ot the month, and a program was
given each time by the members of the organization, or by talent from the college. The pro-
gram all proved most interesting.
The final social event was held May ll, in the auditorium oi the school. Supper was

Virginia Pattison. Also in that crowd is Grace Petty, who is drawing petty
girls. Mary Lou Hayhurst and Rosemary Smith, professional ticket sellers, are
helping out down at the gate this afternoon, and they've had quite a problem
on their hands. They can't decide whether to let Mary Alma McConnell and
Betty Shoaf in for half price or charge them the full amount.
"The Garfield band sounds pretty smooth under the baton of lim Sellers.
Look there! Rex Riggs is sitting over on the Wiley side, he always did go for
the Wiley girls. lt's interesting to note that everyone is wearing corsages from
Imogene Faris, the Fancy Florist. Do you know who raises the finest fruit in
the country? Why, it's Ruth Ann Apple and Charlotte Coffenberry. Be sure to
ask for Apple and Coffenberry fruit the next time you go shopping. I just spot-
ted Warren Brewer. They tell me that he's the President of the Smoke Abate-
ment Club. I guess he's been working for several years and so far hasn't
accomplished much. Bob Hemeier and Stu Chestnut are here doing some
scouting for the University of Southern California. Speaking of scouting -
Winifred Myer, Director of Personnel for Douglas Aircraft, just flew in from
Colorado to look over this year's graduating seniors to see if there is any
material Douglas can use.
There's Ruth Vanderbilt down at Bill Spence and Norman Wall's conces-
sion stand. Ruth inherited the Vanderbilt millions and is busy spending them.
Someone was just hurt on the field. I believe - why, yes, it's little Billy Gies-
man. There goes his dad, Wayne, out on the field. Wayne is principal at
Garfield now. Here comes the ambulance. You can't imagine who's driving
- Charlie Reed. Sally Dill is the doctor and her nurse is Bill Smith. Marion
Dunlap is holding back the crowds so the doctor will have space to work. Doris
Stone just arrived: she's quite busy now since she took over the Quaker Maid
plant. And there's joan Minger. I hear that she has only one more ninth
period before she gets her diploma. No doubt she'll feel just like a bird out of
a cage. Governor lack Gordon just flew in with his air hostess, Beverly Alexl
ander. He's going to make an address during the intermission.
There's the Garfield float, decorated by Marjorie High and Dorothy Riggs.
Hmm - the queen looks familiar. Oh, I know! She's the daughter of Dick
Nicoson and Barbara Abbott. Barbara Toth, Terre I-Iaute's leading photo-
grapher, is now taking pictures of the queen and the float. Here comes the
drum and bulge corps. They are doing nicely under the leadership of Mary
Heyder, who has taken over Warren Henderson's job.
"Ladies, do you find that you never have time to make doll dresses for
your little girls? Then buy them from Valera Downing, who makes 'dresses
for dolls for dollars.' The boys are going back on the field with last minute
good wishes from Basketball Coach, Alex Balu.
Wayne Thorlton and Theresa Greene flew in from the North Woods where
they have been trapping. Bill Everson took time out from his ice fishing to
come down here and see the game and sell fish sandwiches. Vanita Ramey
and her husband, Maver Gibbs, just Walked in, and with them are Harriet

DeLisle and lack Pfrank. By the way Mrs. Pfrank is new single's tennis cham-
pion. We might mention here that Charlotte Morgan and LaDonna Moore
recently won the doubles Olympic tennis match. Two of our girls went into
the business world. Betty Hills bought Hill's Snappy Service jthe only thing
snappy about it is the comebackl. Helen Schultz is special hamburger trier.
Iean McCrocklin is now manager of Root's third floor.
lean Handley and Mary Rouse just flew in from New York, where they
have a group of pictures on display at the Museum of Modern Art. Oh, there
is Bill King, who just flew in from Brooklyn and is extremely happy about his
purchase of the Brooklyn Bridge. He's talking to Gloria Bedino, who is running
a kennel, raising chows. Terry Iohnson is also talking to Bill. Terry, you
know, has revised Einstein's theory. CFormer teachers are amazed?
Congratulations are in order to Rosemary Iones, who won the 500 mile
race at Indianapolis. Also, to Anne Syester, who was recently voted the most
popular blues singer.
While we're passing orchids let's not forget the reporters who are covering
the game. Bill Evans has come from New York: Pat Monroe, editor of the Post-
script page ot the Saturday Evening Post, is helping out too: and Barbara
Compton is pounding away on her typewriter right now. Leo Everett, district
manager of the paper substation of the Terre Haute Tribune, is down in the
press box. lane Wells and Betty Wonders are still swooning over the Bobby
socks hit, not Sinatra, but Paul Thompson.
Maxine Butts and Rosalie Perkins are home for a short vacation from their
missionary work in japan. While there they ran into Warren Martin and Bill
Hawkins, who are now majors in the army of occupation.
We neglected to say at the beginning of the program that the stadium
was designed by Allen Schmidt, architect of world renown, and also a member
of the class of '45. j
All during the game Helen Brown has been passing out oranges from her
ranch in California and Laura Price has been passing out grapefruit from her
ranch in Texas.
"Do your curtains hang crooked. Then use Bevra Culver's Crinkley
Curtains. They're guaranteed to hang straight."
Anne Waggoner is modeling hats for Frances Detrick, who owns the "The
ln case you need a new secretary, just see Doris lean Skitt, who is pres-
ident of Skitt's Secretarial School.
l'm taking this opportunity to announce the new officers of the G. Men's
Club. President, lim Pendergast: Vice-President, Bob Scott: their Secretary,
Marjorie Woodward: Treasurer, Don Russell. The celebration of the election is
to be held at Dorothy Hall's pop-corn stand, which now occupies one complete
block in Twelve Points, and the members of the class of '45 are to be special
guests of the G. Men's Club.
This is lack Knox, your announcer, from WBOW signing off.

G. H. S. vs. Linton
With perfect weather, the Purple Eagles ishered in their season by Winning their first
G. H. S. vs. Sullivan
In a thrill-packed game Garfield met defeat at the hands of a pass-minded Sullivan ag-
gregation. Q y
G. H. S. vs. Brazil
A crippled Garfield team was upset by the Brazil Red Devils at Brazil. Victory was With'
in the grasp of Garfield when the Eagles completed a pass in the end zone to Stu Chestnut,
but illegal use of hands was called by the umpire.
G. H. S. vs. Clinton
Clinton, making only 4 first downs and being across our 35-yard line only once, defeated
us by a score of 6-0. The breaks of the game!
G. H. S. vs. Tech
The Tech Black Cats gained revenge for last year's defeat by capitalizing on an inter-
ference penalty and scoring the only touchdown of the game midway through the first quar-
ter. Score 6-0.
G. H. S. vs. Georgetown
Playing the first half with reserves, Garfield had a 6-0 deficiency at the half. The regu-
lars by the end of the second half made the final score 7-6, breaking a four-game losing streak.
G. H. S. vs. Robinson
Playing on a field that more nearly resembled Lake Michigan than Memorial Stadium,
the Wabash Valley champions from Robinson pasted Garfield 20-0. The most spectacular
play was made by Steele of Robinson. Backed up 7 yards behind his goal line in punt forma-
tion ready to kick, he fumbled the ball, picked it up, slid, splashed, and swam 107 yards for a
touchdown. Needless to say the weather was rainy.
G. H. S. vs. Oblong
This game was a complete rout for the Purple Eagles. The first team played only 19
minutes of the 32, and in this time they scored 38 points. Final score 38-0.
G. H. s. vs. wney
In probably one of the best-played Garfield-Wiley football games in many a year,
Wiley pulled a "Pearl Harbor" to tie Garfield 13-13. lust before the third period ended Gar-
field lost possession of the ball on a fumble and a quick whistle by the official. Brewer's
70-yard touchdown dash and Hawkins' superb catch of a pass from Nicoson together with a
place kick by Hansel accounted for Garfield's scoring
.T.. o i
At the close of the season, Pete Varda and Bob Hemeier were elected co-captains of the
Varda, a power on offense and defense during the entire season, rated a berth on the
Tribune-Star All-Valley eleven. Chestnut gathered a second team spot, and Hansel a third.

The first Wabash Valley Basketball Championship in the history of Garfield -thats the
claim to fame for the '45 Purple Eagles. Garfield fans will long remember this team, in top-
notch physical and mental condition, well-balanced, well-coordinated, playing through seven
games of stiff tournament play, winning practically every game by a comfortable margin tak-
ing the victory like the true champions they were:
We salute . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The Valley Champs.
Individual high scoring honors for the season went to Stu Chestnut - Stu also picked up
the high scoring title for the newly organized West Central Conference. To Chestnut, too,
went the Zimmerman Award as most valuable player of the season. Co-captains Balu and
Chestnut added to their laurels by rating berths on the Tribune-Star All-Valley team.
Alex Balu had his name engraved on the G Men plaque for making the best percentage
of free throws, 68.572,

Have you ever stopped to think what Democracy means?
Well, I have!
Democracy is boys playing in cool, clear streams:
It's lovers with the wonder of new-old dreamsp
1t's planes climbing a path, strange and high:
It's our flag against a space in the sky
It's people going to church - the one of their choiceg
It's the high and the low speaking together in a fearless voice,
It's a free press. lt's a city skylineg and it's country scenes.
Have you ever thought what Democracy means?
Well, I have.
-Written by IACK KNOX.
The willow hows in the morning sun,
Shaking away the glistening dew drops.
She nods to the river as the dew drops form
Interlocking rings of ripples.
Stretching her roots,
Wiggling her toes in the mud,
Drinking her fill,
She washes her long hair in the river and
Dries it in the sun ana' bzreeze:
Then sings and dabbles her fingers
In the current
While she listens and watches
The water flow.
-Written by VIRGINIA THOMAS.
