Editor, JOHN GRIMM PROMOTED PILOT IN MEMORIAM It is the hope of each one as he reads the words of Kipling ' s immortal " L ' Envoi " to become, eventually, part of that picture. Only three short years ago a Railroader of the Class of ' 39 took his orders unflinchingly, and traveled a new road. He joined THAT picture. What higher tribute to his memory could we pay than to think of him as one worthy of being promoted to the position of PILOT. To us, through the years, the memory of his good sportsmanship, cheerful friendliness, and beautiful Christian character has been a constant force in bringing us to visualize that: " When the one great Scorer comes To write against your name. He writes not that you won or lost, But how you played the game. " Chalmer Recktenwald 1920-1935 L ' ENVOI When Earth ' s last picture Is painted, and the tubes are twisted and dried, When the oldest colors have faded, and the youngest critic has died, We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need it—He down for an aeon or two. Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall set us to work anew! And those that were good shall be happy; they shall sit In a golden chair. They shall splash at a ten-league canvas with brushes of comets ' hair; They shall find real saints to draw from—Magdalene, Peter, and Paul; Tney shall work for an age at a sitting and never be tired at all! And only the Master shall praise us, and only the Master shall blame; And no one shall work for money, and no one shall work for fame: But each for the joy of the working, and each. In his separate star. Shall draw the Thing as he sees It for the God of Things as They Are! —Rudyard Kipling. 5 CLEAR THE BLOCK Guiding us over Board of Directors, hinder our progress, gerial ability " clear more traversed roads is the No danger or obstruction will for their foresight and mana- all blocks " . 4 Secretary 5 FULL SPEED AHEAD Having received the " right-of-way " the Chief Dispatcher, supported by the General Superin¬ tendent, issues final orders.

The plot of the plav centered around Caroline Van West, a spinster, who invited all of her relatives to the Van West mansion to help her make her will. As the story pro¬ gressed, a costly string of pearls was stolen, which placed suspicion on all the guests. A legend that the house was haunted provided a mysterious atmosphere throughout the entire play.

" Music”, someone has said, " is the fourth need of man.” Food, clothing, shelter— then MUSIC. Life is made richer and better if its influence has been admitted. Addison wrote: " It wakes the soul, and lifts it high. And wings it with stiblime desires, And fits it to bespeak the Deity.” One of the chief aims of Garrett High School is to offer the opportunity for a study of music through our Band, Orchestra, and Glee Clubs. ft-.

Since the day we started, to the end of May. We have made so many friends tie cannot count them. We have learned so many things we did not know. We have made some errors, yes. But not many tie confess. And we’ll remember G. H. S., where’er we go. Through the years we’ve had our share of fun and frolic. We studied hard and still had time for play. Now with the ending year. We’re closing with a tear. And hope you miss us each and every day. —Virgiene Benzel. 39 YEA! RAILROADERS Long have men of brain and brawn kept Gar¬ rett ' s " Railroad Tradition " brilliant In the annals of transportation. Equally brilliant have been the achievements of the G. H. S. Railroaders In the annals of athletic conquest. Boys ' League Champs " Let me think.

The high point of the season was the defeating of Auburn and Kendallville on successive week ends. Previous to this time, Garrett had defeated the powerful Columbia City and Decatur teams. Graduation will affect the ’3 9-’40 team little, for eight of the first twelve will be returning. Front Row: Dale Hart, Bill VanFleit, Joe Gcyer (Capt.), Clyde Lewis, Joe Leeson.

One cannot imagine a smooth-running train with no one to build the bridges, repair the roadbed, replace broken rails, or sweep out the switches. It is likewise difficult to imagine a smooth-running school without someone to provide proper heat regulation, clean the rooms, wash the windows, clean the walks, and a hundred and one other seemingly small but very important details of comfort. The “H” may well represent the high quality of the service rendered by the janitorial staff. Upper Left: ' ' Willing Wilson” demolishes obnoxious weeds on the right-of-way. Upper Right: " Bustling Bob” makes the windows sparkle " like new”. Loii ' cr Left: " Smiling Jim” runs his man-powered hand car many miles a month gathering students’ discarded efforts at thought. Lower Right: " Care-free Coony”, everybody’s friend, receives a beautiful electric clock from the faculty and administration upon his retirement from active service. It takes a good clock to be as punctual as Mr. Schomberg. 48 Let’s make the " S” toj’etlier; It will be a lot of fuii. ' X ' e’ll give you a good beginning, Then you complete the pun. Three big smiles On three Garrett lads, They’re proud to be called Just plain " Post X ' hat spoils soup if it isn’t in it? You can think if you try a minute. It’s rather hot, but rhymes with Willy; X ' e knew you’d guess it. Sure it’s Me who tries hard always wins. " hy don’t you try To name these . . . Can you think of a word To rhyme with wiggling? They’re always at it; It must be It isn’t stud) ' ; It isn’t play and Comes out today. They’re going away. But it’s all in fun; They’ll soon be back; It’s the country run. Charley McCarthy is only a dummy. Joe says it himself, " Chili went to my .. They’ve been bit by a bug. Both Thais and " Doug”; They’ve been given a shove. So this must be He’s good looking and quiet. And seldom is seen Unless he is busy; ’ ' X’e’re all for you. We must come to an end. And believe it or not, X ' e had other good poses. But they were too hot. 49 CLASS PROPHECY Only once in a generation do the stars form the sign of the polecat. At this time Mammy Yokum is able to conjure a vision of the future. Strolling along one evening we met her just as the stars were forming the sign. Lucky! I guess we were because she consented to conjure up a vision of the 1949 reunion of that dear old class of 193 9. Into our mind enters her very thoughts so we’ll tell them to you—Bright lights! A wonderful city comes into view—Garrett!! We are carried to the Ritz Hotel in a taxi owned by Dean McBride and Company. William Kock welcomes us—although this is a little out of the way for the hotel manager to do, still he wants to see his old friends. Dorothy Wagner and her Accordion Band have come from the Rainbow Room in New York City, where they are playing nightly. That wizard of the drums, Freda Chester and Betty Wise, that glamorous torch singer, are featured with Dorothy’s band. Joan Hyler and her troupe of French ballet dancers, in their tour of the world, have stopped for an evening’s engagement. Can that be Miss Betty Abram who has just crashed the movies—yes, it is! And there’s Richard Likens, noted aviator, who has just circled the globe in record time. Incidentally, Audrey Feagler was his lovely stewardess. Nearly everyone has arrived while we’ve been talking so we’ll try to glance over the crowd and tell you about all of them. We notice as Lillian Rowe, society editor of the New York Times, turns the pages of her scrap-book that we can find Winifred Davis, the song bird of the South, at NBC along with Harold Seidel and Edward Schneider who are Radio City’s great technicians. Skipping out to Madison Square Garden we find Frank Eldridge’s circus. Joseph Geyer has just joined the circus as the lion tamer. He has recently arrived from the jungles of South Africa with many prizes. Corinne Traxler is a great artist! She has just received a prize for one of her famous paintings. On Fifth Avenue Betty Stonestreet, Norma Smith, and Doris Hassett are the proprietors of their famous beauty salon. Joan Kelham has just made her debut in Carnegie Hall as concert pianist. Maxine Bowman and Marguerette Anderson are on their vacation from the Jack Dempsey restaurant where they are waitresses. The next celebrity to enter the hotel is LeRoy Stoll who informs us that Earl Schulthess is captain on the S. S. Roosevelt, and Virgiene Benzel has received recognition by English critics for her great works of poetry. " My wife buys all her gowns at the Eoley Gown Shoppe in Paris where Rose Marie Dreher and Mary Jean Grant are her favorite mannequins,” states Mr. Stoll. Mary Erickson is designing for the shoppe. Dale Haffner has extended the Haffner stores to South America. Erom Hollywood comes Raymond Saxer, with his " Gift of Gab” and it comes in handy now for he has just announced that William Stonestreet and Harvey Hochstetler are producing a new version of " Blondie and Dagwood” in which Jane Schulthess and Robert Cramer have the leads. The editor of the Chicago Tribune, Sarah Rensberger, has just approached the " mike” and tells us of the great success of Beverly Barnes and John Grimm in Chicago. Beverly, professor of Chemistry in Chicago University, is breaking test tubes to stimulate business for John’s glass factory. Eor tempting food in Chicago visit " Irene’s Bakery Shop” owned and operated by Irene Muzzillo. Nurses in the St. Luke’s Hospital are supervised by Harriett Bohler. The University of Chicago’s librarians are Barbara Ereeze and Prudence Freygang. Ruth Kern, a well-known society woman has her yacht on the Caribbean while the Rentoo Airport provides headquarters for the world’s great aviator, Joseph Brinkerhoff. 50 The " mike” is now lurned over to Alexander Yanus eski, radio announcer lor VC ' OWC), l ort W ' ayne, who tells us that Udna Kleeman and lierneice Koepke own and operate the skating rink at Trier’s Park, lie also states that the manager of the Paris store is Hetty Hall, while Ottilee Hall is the head buyer in the ready-made department. 1 lead of the weather bureau of Port W ' ayne and vicinity is the shark Ralph W ' oodcock. Next we see, striding forw ard, Ronald breeze, noted president of the Garrett Univer¬ sity. He tells us about many of our number who have made a name for themselves in the " Old Home Town”. The great economist, WY ' ndell Poffenberger, is professor of Economics in the university. Virginia Reneman is dean of girls in the Y. W ' . C. A. On the corner of Randolph and King is the famous Dari-Har owned by Ruth Lewis. Remember the good old days! The recent Garrett High School’s state basketball champs were coached by Clyde Lewis. The million dollar new Royal Theater, owned by Ken¬ neth Kruger is featuring the world’s favorite comedian, Eugene Starner. Robert Vanl.ear handles funds of the Garrett Metropolis at the Garrett State Hank, receiving a salary of s.V),00t) a vear. North of the city are Indiana’s two largest dairy farms owned by John 1 laynes and Ralph Tuttle who are still trying to out-do each other. Then from our midst steps Mary Helen Hyde, reporter for a Detroit paper who an¬ nounces that Hetty Smurr and Lois Lane are head specialists in the Detroit City Hospital, and Louise W ' oodard is the hospital’s leading nurse. In the First National Hank in down¬ town Detroit is none other than well-known Hetty Neighborgall holding the position as linguist. Pht llis Stuckman is the beautiful wife of a Detroit High School coach, who is a graduate of North Manchester. George Talley’s swing band has just made a tour of the United States. James Herzer can be seen stepping very proudly around the Ford Automobile Plant because he is general manager. Our last city of recognition is Washington, D. C. Here in an exclusive apartment we find Margaret Stansbury who is Secretary of State, and Juanita Brinkman, printing dollar bills in the United States Mint. Looking over the society list, 1 found that Jeanne Brennan is the city’s leading societ) ' woman. W ' e are prone to stop for the sign of the polecat fades and as it does, so goes the vision of Mammy Yokum. Looking up we hear the president of the class say, " May the meeting of the Senior class of 195 9 come to order?” SONG OF THE CLASS OF ' 39 (Tune—Alexander’s Ragtime Band) Come on and hear, come on and hear Garrett High School’s latest band; Come on and cheer, come on and cheer For the best class in the land; W ' e can play and we can work; W ' e are timid but we’ll go Out in the world to meet either friend or foe; That’s just the lesson we have learned. Garrett High, Thirty-nine, Thirty-nine, Your diploma you have earned; Maroon and white. Oh let us fight " To be rather than to seem”. And if you care to hear the Seniors shouting their last farewell. Come on and cheer, come on and cheer. Graduation time is here. —Dorothy W ' agner. 51 BOOSTERS CONGRATULATE SENIORS Griest Barber Shop Juanita Beauty Shoppe Stern Clothing Company Garrett City Coal Co. Dr. R. M.
