: N ' •b ' . ' ■ PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF GARRETT HIGH SCHOOL GARRETT, INDIANA Pcif c 1 C .Cr- 2 - If a school system were compared to the work- ings of a delicate watch, the balance wheel for the school would be its administration. The administra- tion, like the balance wheel, is the unseen force that controls the entire movement and program of the school. It keeps the system running smoothly and provides the motivating force behind the scenes, which is not understood or appreciated by most students. Therefore we, the class of ' 37, desiring to show in some manner our appreciation and gratitude for the benefits we have so received, dedicate this Aeolian to " the men higher up " Our Administration. D P I) J fi i] s BALANCE. What does this word mean to you? It is at once one of the least appreciated and most valuable words in the English language. The value of a balanced life cannot be over-estimated. A person v iiose life is not properly balanced cannot be successful or satisfied; if it is so balanced, he cannot be otherwise. In view of this importance of balance in living we have attempted to present in this Aeolian the various divisions of the school as a closely knit system, each part serving as a neces- sary unit in making a perfect balance. £ D i r D in i] I Page } I ADMINISTRATION Board of Education Superintendent Principal II CLASSES Seniors Underclassmen III ACTIVITIES Clubs Organizations Musical Activities IV ATHLETICS Football Track Basketball fi 1) J] T £ J] T ij Puae 4 THE MOTIVATING FORCE BEHIND THE SCENES The Board of Education is one of the most vital factors in main- taining an efficient, smooth-running school system. Garrett is fortu- nate in having as members of its Board three of the best qualified business and professional men of the city. Although their connection with the school is not realized by most of the student body, the de- cisions they make affect each pupil every day of the school year. These men give their time and services for very little remuneration and are always counted upon as among the real civic leaders in the community. DR. J. W. THOMSON Prt ' siclcuf DR. J. A. CLEVENGER Sci ' n-fary D. B. VAN FLEIT Treasurer Page 5 THE SCHOOL CITY ' S CLEARING HOUSE A unified, co-ordinated, balanced, and progressive school system is the ideal of our superintendent. There is almost no end to the varied activities necessary for the accom- plishing of this objective. Early and late, winter and summer the superintendent is on the job. A few of his frequently recurring responsibilities include an almost daily check-up at the School Bookstore; making sure that janitors and engineers are on duty at each of the buildings; providing substitutes in the absence of regular teachers; a careful check and analysis of the attendance reports from each of the various buildings; the ironing out of problems with regard to contagious diseases; and so on almost without number. The superintendent must have frequent and varied conferences: Conferences with pupils who have matters which must go to a final " court of appeal " ; conferences with parents; conferences with teachers; conferences with principals; conferences with the building architect; conferences with the building foremen; conferences with the Board of Education, conferences with State officials; conferences almost without end. Likewise upon the superintendent falls the responsibility of managing the school on a solid business basis. He must plan the school budget in such a manner that the needs for a whole year ahead will be amply provided for; he must find ways and means for raising the budget; and he must keep up to the minute on the school ' s legal business. Such are some of the activities of the manager of the community ' s most vital enter- prise. THE HIGH SCHOOL ' S NERVE CENTER Yes .... Sure .... I ' ve been here since a little past seven. You bet; I ' ll see that it ' s taken care of. " . . . Thus begins the Principal ' s busy but interesting round of activities. But it is not the end. A little mouse crept in the office one day and here are some of the things it heard . . . " Good morning, Mr. Painter . . . Hello, Marge . . . Hello, Lucille . . . Yes, you may use the telephone. . . . Why were you absent yesterday? . . . Have you the grade sheets copied, Lucille? .... Marge, how many haven ' t paid their fees yet? .... Lucille, I would like to see John J., Mary S., and Harry F., etc., etc., during the next two periods; will you send them in? . . . Your attention for announcements, please. Miss Gump, will you please see that the folks in 12 stop typing while these announce- ments are being made? .... Lucille . . . Walker K. wants a job in the G. E., will you make out his credit record while I ' m having my third and fourth period classes? .... Well, I am back right on schedule, 12:15, I must check up on the ratings of the seniors this afternoon Lucille, I wonder why there is no grade here for Charles E. in typing. He needs that to graduate. You say Miss Gump didn ' t have it on her grade sheet? You better bring him in Well, there are the last two Parent-Physician certificates to send to the I. H. S. A. A.; you had better get them in the mail this afternoon. And so, ad infinitum But somehow he manages to keep a big broad smile and a cheery word for everyone. Page 7 MR. PAUL BATEMAN B. S. A.

Page 9 DeVeny THE SENIOR NOBODY KNEW This Senior boy attended G. H. S. for four years without once being absent or tardy. Everybody saw him, but nobody recognized him. He madg a creditable record in all courses and will be graduated with honors, but his name will not be on the roll of graduates and he will receive no diploma. Do you know him? What would thirty-four boys look like if you could put them all together and get the medium — like Mr. Minniear does with his grades? Well, here ' s the answer. This picture, which contains some of the characteristics of each of the thirty-four senior boys, is a product of the ingenuity of Mr. Sheets, Aeolian photographer. This type of picture is a rare thing even among those most skilled in the art of photography. It was not made by taking parts of the individual pictures but by printing each negative in turn upon the preceeding ones. Very little retouching was done except on the coat lapels and tie. This picture represents a balanced senior boy in respect to facial features and serves as a striking illustration of the theme of this Aeolian. . 0 J -{ 0 It is in our classes that we achieve the first and primary purpose of education. This division forms the dominant and central point in a balanced school program. It is here that the mind is trained and developed; preparation for life ' s work begun and a foundation laid for a cultural background. The necessity for this knowledge is greater now than ever before because of the keen competition in trade and the overcrowded conditions in every profession.

Page 2} SENIOR CLASS PLAY " The Novel Princess, " starring Virginia Fratila and LeRoy Drews, directed by Mrs. Ivan Fitch, was presented at the gymnasium May 13 and 14 by the Senior Class. The production is a romantic farce with several musical numbers and proved to be a great success. Sonia, Princess of Danzibar, has become en- amored of American ideals and men through read- ing American novels. Finding herself a rebellious pawn in affairs of State, she attempts to flee the country, abetted by the American book-salesman and her favorite Lady-in-Waiting. The entire Court is thrown into consternation. The country is in an uproar. International complications de- velop. American tourist trade, chief source of revenue for Danzibar throughout the depression, . is in confusion. Arac, the Lord Chancellor, promptly thrown a military cordon about the city, and Sonia is trapped within it, almost in the very shadow of the palace walls. In her disguise as a scullery maid she would have been safe mdefinite- ly, but her own tumultuous nature flings her from one complicated situation into another. Then she falls in love, with riotous results. The plot is swift, tense, full of sudden surprises. The lines are modern, sparkling, witty, yet the tone of royalty has been preserved even in the most farcical situation. Suspense is sustained, mounting to the last curtain. The play has color, glamour, mystery, romance, action.

" ;j A • , .-o Our school-sponsored clubs, parties, and social functions form an important part of the balanced school system. Personality, that indefinable some- thing which sets every man apart from his fellows, is created and developed by these activities to an extent not available elsewhere. They give training in leadership, cooperation and in the various social graces. Although these activities are not widely thought of as connected with education, they have an invaluable place in the up-to-date school life. Paxe 25 MAROON AND BLUE STAFF Under the supervision of Miss Evard, the Maroon and Blue Staff has completed a very successful year in the journalistic field. The paper was published every two weeks and received " A " rating from the National Mimeograph Exchange. The platform which was decided upon by the Staff at the beginning of the year and printed in every issue was as follows: 1. Better support of athletic contests. 2. No smoking on school grounds. 3. Guidance program cooperation. 4. Courtesy in the hallways. Miss Evard, sponsor; Jean Redman, assistant editor; and Elsie Yarde, circulation manager; attended the National Mimeograph Conference at Danville, Indiana, where Miss Evard was in charge of the Business Managers division. The Staff visited the News and Sentinel plant and the State School at Fort Wayne. Merle Childers, sport editor, attended the Medill Press Conference at Northwestern University April 3 and May 1.

MIXED CHORUS The Mixed Chorus, Hke the Girls ' Glee Club, is an industrious organization, having appeared in the Christmas program, the annual concert, and the county music festival. Unlike the Girls ' Glee Club, both boys and girls are enrolled, and sing many beautiful and harmonious songs. GLEE CLUB The Girls ' Glee Club is one of the most active organizations of the school. During the current school year, the club participated in a Christmas program, held an annual concert, sang in the an- nual music festival, and at the commencement exercises. A period each week is spent in learning to read and understand music, and sing it in two and three-part harmony. Fuse 2 S INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC The band and orchestra, under the direction of Fred Casner, participated in the annual Spring Music Concert. The band, newly uniformed this year by the Elks, played for all home football and basketball games, for the corner-stone laying at the new Post Office, for the Physical Education Exhibition, the Pointer-Setter Club program, a Democratic rally and for the convocation at which the Lieutenant Governor addressed the en- tire grade and high school student body. In conjunction with the band and orchestra, instrumental classes have been organized to build material for these musical units. The band will attend the State Convention of Elks held in Logansport in June. They will be in the parade there, representing the local lodge and city. A picked ensemble from the orchestra will furnish music for the Senior Class Play and for Commencement. Upper group — front rou: Marcella McCorkel, Joan Umbenhower, Margaret Stansbury.

Pafie)) Pilar H • ■ A ;- The proper balance in modern education is not complete without physical education and athletics. A good mind and personality are seriously handi- capped by a weak body. Through the many sports and exercises the students strengthen their bodies, develop coordination and many vital instincts which will be of inestimable use in later life. Not only do the participants have instilled in their minds the principles of clean living, fair play and sportsman- ship but also the onlooker may absorb those same qualities from watching the contests. Page 3 5 1936 FOOTBALL SEASON Under the capable leadership of Garrett ' s new coach, Cameron Parks, the football team enjoyed a quite successful season. The Railroaders won three games, lost three, and tied one. The three victories were rung up on the strong Howe Mili- tary Academy eleven, Hicksville, Ohio, and Bron- son, Michigan. Garrett suffered defeats at the hands of Portland, Columbia City, and Central Cathlic of Fort Wayne. In the final game of the season, the Auburn Red Devils played the Parks- men on the local field. After a very hard fought game the two teams walked off the field with a 6 to 6 tie to store in the Garrett-Auburn records. Nathan McCully, senior guard, was elected captain by his teammates. This was McCuUy ' s first year as a regular player.

Pane } 6 1936-37 BASKETBALL SEASON A basketball eam that wasn ' t defeated until the final gun was fired, was the kind of a team that Garrett High School had this year. The Rail- roaders had one of the best basketball teams this city has ever known. They won the Sectional tournament at Angola, and at Auburn, they were defeated in the finals of the Regional Tournament by a strong Warsaw five, 41 to 3 8. Warsaw de- feated Wabash in the Super-Regional at Muncie, only to be turned back by Central of Fort Wayne in the finals. One of the strongest rallies ever seen by many was made by the Railroaders when they came back after the score was 21 to 8 in Kendall- ville ' s favor late in the third quarter to steal the game from the Comets ' by the score of 29 to 2 5. In the regular playing season, Garrett won 17 games and lost only three. They were defeated by Waterloo, Kendallville, and LaGrange. Two of these defeats, Kendallville and Waterloo were re- venged in the Sectional and Regional tournaments. In the blind tournament at Butler, the Parks- men won one and lost one. In the Sectional at Angola, Garrett won four games. At Auburn, in the Regional, the Railroaders won one game and lost one to make an all seasonal record of 23 wins and 5 defeats. Donald Painter, senior forward on the Garrett team, was elected captain in mid-season and held that honor throughout the rest of the season. This was Don ' s second year on the varsity.

DONALD PAINTER — Don was elected captain by his team- mates. He is a Senior and has been on the varsity for two years. He had a very een basket-eye and could hit from under the basket and from far out on the field. He is six feet two. Don played forward. EUGENE PORTER — Red has played on the varsity for two years and is a Senior. Red played two positions this season, center and guard, and was very effective at both of them. He had a very good basket eye and scored many points for the Railroaders. He was the tallest man on the first five, six feet three. MERLE CHILDERS — Although this, his senior year was his first on the varsity, Spike took Charles Hamm ' s position in mid-season and performed like a veteran. He always kept a cool-head and was an excellent rebound man under the basket. His guarding was one of the high spots of the zone defense of the Railroaders. He is six feet two. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN— Although Ben is a Junior, he will be lost to the team for next year. He is moving to Goshen. Ben has been on the varsity for three years. He played guard this season and although he didn ' t score as consistently as some of the other players his defense playing was excellent. When it came to taking rebounds, he was a master. Ben is six feet tall. ROBERT TRASTER — This is Buckshot ' s first year on the varsity. He Is a Senior and played reserve guard. Buck was very adapted to long-shot shooting and was very accurate. Buck was hurt the first part of the season and therefore didn ' t get in many games until the middle of the season. lUick is six feet one. GLENN KISTLER — Klssy is the smallest player on the first five. He is a Junior and has been on the varsity for three years. Kissy scored the highest number of points in this part of Indiana this year In the regular playing season and added quite a few more on to that total during the tournament. He was the fastest man on Garrett ' s squad. He is five feet eight. JAMES REDMOND — Toar was the big man on the team. He is six feet four. Toar played on both the first and second teams this year. Because of his height and his accurate shooting eye he scored very consistently. This was Toar ' s first year on the varsity. He is a Senior. JOHN GRIMM — Johnny is a Sophomore. This is his first year on the varsity. He played on the second team most of the season and played very well. Johnny was fairly ac- curate on long shots and scored many of his points from there. He, also, was effective on one-handed shots. He is five feet eleven. EDWARD RUNYAN — Tony is a Junior and has been on the varsity only one year. Tony was high-point man on the second team this year. He has his own way of dribbling to go around an opponent to score a basket. Tony is five feet nine. Much is expected of him next year by not only the rest of the squad, but from the Railroader fans as well. MURLAND ANDERSON— Andy is a Junior and this was his first year on the varsity. He was a very good shot from the field and scored high in every game. He played on the second team most of the season to gain experience for the tournament. Andy Is five feet nine. i iKC i .V YEA - GARRETT Garrett High may well be proud of the school spirit which prevailed this year throughout the football and basketball season. Win or lose, the crowd was behind the team to the finish. The many encouraging comments which were made about the Railroaders last fall and winter seemed to add to the enthusiasm of the boys for hard, clean playing. Much credit is due " Kate, " " Kay " and " Mac " who gave gener- ously of their time to lead the crowd in backing up Garrett ' s suc- cessful teams. Although less in evidence, much credit is due Garrett High ' s two student managers. Herzer and Snook were always on the job to help the boys train, to get them into shape for the game, to check equipment — in fact to do whatever needed to be done. At the close of the season with all basketball and football equipment put away, the sweet taste of good sportsmanship and support of the team still lingers into the other sports. In later years the influence of this year will make the school want to live up to the standard already set. A New York man says he spent $10,00U on his son ' t education and got only a quarterback. If all students who sleep in class were laid end to end .... they would be more comfortable. Helen Jones (driving Buck Traster ' s car) : " Buck, that little mirror up there isn ' t set right. " Buck: " Isn ' t it? " Helen: " No. I can ' t see anything but the car behind. Merle Childers: " I ' m thinking of asking some girl to marry me. What do you think of the idea? " Sally Carlin: " It ' s a great idea, if you ask me. " Glenn Kistler in bed with .i cold was told that he had a temperature. " How high is it. Doc? " he asked. " A hundred and one. " " What ' s the world ' s record? " Left to right: Kathleen Hendrick- son, James Herzer, Katherine Frank- lin, Gilbert Snook, Margaret Mc- Kinley. Page 3 9 G. H. S.
