I 2 vp-nv xv— I m HHZj V POIhTF OF ' 45 Pl EL 5HEt EY THE 5En OR LW5 OF EMOR TO -Eh TOR riii onecu ncC In these days of rationed tires, rationed gas, and rationed butter, we, the Class of 1945, wish to share with th e readers of " Points of ' 45 " our hopes, our ambitions, and a complete picture of Garrett High School life. It is the Seniors ' purpose to create a memory book of their high school days and to place before the public a picture of student activities, student abilities, student philosophies, and student sharings in making this publication possible. ecUcatca t To serve our country many of our class associates with whom we have shared happy school days have left. Some of them were players on our football and basketball teams, others were active Teamsters in various school clubs and in classroom projects. We think of each of them as a fun loving school pal. Together with them in our school participations we learned the meaning of freedom, but little did we realize its full significance until we saw these youths of Garrett High transformed into heroes of World War II. It is, therefore, with sincere pleasure that we, the Class of ' 45, ' dedicate our yearbook, " Points of ' 45, " to those who are serving on that larger and greater team. May they who are sacrificing so unselfishly accomplish the task for which they were called — the bringing about of a lasting world peace in our time, for our gen- eration and for the generations to come.

THOMSON BOARD OF EDUCATION The task of rationing materials, jobs, and budgets, that they may efficiently meet the civic, the social, and the educational desires of our community and of our nation, rests upon the diligent efforts of our Board of Education. The members of this group spend many hours of their valuable time in order that we students may gain in point value. We thank them. O. p. A. OF G. H. S. MR. PAINTER MR. MINNIEAR MR. PAINTER and MR. MINNIEAR Mr. Painter and Mr. Minniear are the O. P. A. of our G. H. S. To them we look for precious points on advice, council, and in- spiration. It is they who frequently issue the final ultimatum about the ways in which we are rationing our time and our talents. We are grateful for the priceless tokens which they have made available for us. RATION BOARD Mr. Flora — " Nothing so be- comes a man as being hu- man and understanding. " Miss Gump — " Gracious to all, to none subservient, without offense she spoke the words she meant.

" Mr. Rahmer — " Possessed of de- termination to succeed, he succeeds and achieves his desires. " to supervise and attend student evening programs, dances, and parties. The teachers were always aware of student problems; and through personal counsel and advice helped to create and to establish in the minds of the s ' .udents ideals and standards that will make the experience of " Life Abundant " more possible. Mrs. Fouch — " No gift is more precious than good advice, the gift she well could give in a pleasing way.

Each used stamp holds a definite memory of some school experience. When we were ' Too Young to Drive " our thoughts were directed toward the time when we should take our place as the class of 1945. When we set out on our high school journey our tank of energy registered full, and we were willing to tackle all obstacles and barriers which might occur on our trip to success. Goals were set, standards were established, and successes were anticipated. As " A " book holders, we won distinct ion as the first sophomore class of G. H. S. to have funds in our treasury. This resulted from our patriotic efforts to help in the national scrap drive. To celebrate the success of this drive, the class sponsored a Victory Dance which helped to cement school loyalties, and class and social relationships. Our Junior Variety Show of 1944 was unique in idea, and the first show of its type ever presented by a G. H. S. class. Con- sisting of an operetta, a one act play, and a minstrel, the Varieties was an entertainment which set a precedent for future junior clsses. Highlighting the year of advancement and training was the Junior-Senior banquet, which was built around a nautical theme, and which featured the music of Jack Rollins and his band. " C " books were ours when we become seniors, and we have tried to make the most of the opportunities to which these books have entitled us. Scholastic honors, athletic recognitions, and leaderships in various activities were roles achieved by the different individuals of the class. Editing " Points of 1945 " is an outstanding accomplishment of our class. Each member faithfully and diligently gave his time, talent, and knowledge toward trying to make the yearbook a true panorama of the classes, activities, and athletics. We are proud of our yearbook and set it as an example for future senior classes of Garrett High School. As we conclude our high school experience, we definitely realize that we are facing graver and sterner responsibilities. We appreciate the sympathetic understanding, the patient con- sideration, and the constant efforts of our school officials and teachers to make us more able and more worthy to combat life ' s problems and to attain our next goal. 17 B BOOK HOLDERS ' ■w ' iJBBL vm 9k ' flMk fli SA ' hh »JiSi fi m Left to right.

As " B " book holders, the class of " 46 " ranks second among the classes in G. H. S. This group of students has successfully undertaken responsibil- ities and carried out the duties which are usually expected of juniors. From the beginning of school, the juniors to whom the candy case was rationed have been faithfully lug- ging it through the halls that the spare bars may be available to the sweet toothed students. When the basketball season began, the juniors again accepted their rationed inher- itance of catering to the appetites of the fans to whom the thrifty sales- people sold soft drinks, potato chips, and popcorn. To the students and to the school patrons, the juniors presented " Chautauqua, " a clever program which boosted the class prestige Climaxing a successful school year, the juniors honored the seniors with a festive banquet, unique in its plan- ning, from decorations to program and social enjoyment. Whether it were scholastic activi- ties, extra-curricular projects, or com- munity drives, the members of the " Class of ' 46 " showed their willing- ness to learn, to work, and to co-oper- ate. The seniors are indeed pleased to have the members of the junior class as their worthy successors. We feel that they deserve " C " books now instead of " B " books. Carrying on the business affairs for the juniors were: Harold Ross, president; Grayson Tuck, vice pres- ident; MaryRuth Van Fleit, secretary- treasurer. 18 BOOK HOLDERS Left to right.

In these days of gasoline rationing, " A " books are issued by ration boards to every one who has an automobile and who is license to drive. As " A " book holders, the Soph- omores are comparative beginners in high school life, but after han- dling school activities and classes for three years, the members of the class will be entitled to " C " books and the responsibilities and happi- nesses that go with them. Installation of officers afforded a time for the three sophomore home room groups to meet jointly. The pro- gram for the occasion was based up- on a patriotic theme and gave mem- bers of the class a chance to show their talents. Sophomore home rooms ranked first, second, and third in the total amount of money turned in dur- ing the Junior Red Cross drive held throughout the school. This is a fine showing from the underclassmen and worthy of recognition. Freshmen were treated to a skat- ing party given by the sopohomores at the Silver Moon. A good time was afforded for all and co-operative re- lationships between the classes were firmly fixed. To share the Yuletide spirit during the Christmas season, the sophomore English classes pre- sented, before the student body, a delightful Christmas program. Officers of the class are: Richard Drews, president; Gerald Johnson, vice president; Mary Lou Smith, secretary; and Audrey Lazenby, treasurer. 19 TOO YOUNG TO DRIVE Left ;c :::j;.!

Freshmen hold a very definite po- sition in Garrett High School life, and if they were " Too Young to Drive " they were learning the ways of high school life and how to ration their time and talents to the best advan- tage. When they become ration book holders, these freshmen will know how to make the best use of their op- portunities and will further the glory and sportsmanship of G. H. S. Everything was very different to these newcomers, when they enter- ed high school, and they were per- haps awed by what they saw and by what they were to do. Never before had they to contend with what x • — • v — 2 equals, or with how many legs a centipede has, or with the meaning of " memoria teneo, " but these stu- dents learned fast and have become masters of many situations. Guid- ance periods gave the freshmen a time to discuss useful topics among themselves and with their advisers. Some of these topics were: " How to Study, " " What is Good Citizenship, " and " The Qualities of Real Friend- ship. " Throughout G. H. S. freshmen have blended into the atmosphere of student life, and have established themselves as up and coming citi- zens. Freshman girls sold war bonds and stamps, freshman boys played on Garrett ' s athletic teams, and the band was well supplied with fresh- men. Mr. Woodcox, Miss Macklin, and Miss Haffner were sponsors of the class; and Joyce Barnes, Edwin Mor- torff, and Ned Schlosser were home room presidents. 20 8 POINTERS Left to right.

With two years of Garrett Junior High behind them, the " 8 Pointers " are preparing themselves for high school entrance. They have concen- trated much time and effort toward planning their high school courses, which are based on the type of study and work they wish to pursue. To these students a number of courses and subjects are available. Their choice depends largely upon the interests and abilities they have shown during previous school years. A College course prepares students for advanced training, including more mathematics, language, and science than the other courses. To acquaint students with business life, Garrett High School ' s Commercial course affords a chance for them to gain a knowledge of shorthand, typ- ing, and bookkeeping. Industrial Arts course equips boys with knowl- edge and skills in manual arts and mechanical drawing. In the Home Economics course, girls are taught cooking, sewing, and the fundamen- tals of home management. As a pro- gressive measure, the Agricultural course provides careful study of the best and latest methods of farm care, and production. Students are advis- ed and directed individually by their teachers in maki ng choices of their courses. With these years as " spares " com- plete, the eight pointers look forward to entering the Senior High School, where they will ration their interests not only scholastically but also socially. 21 7 POINTERS Left to right.

In these days of rationing, seven points are comparatively few, but evaluation increases with time and demands. As seventh graders, these pupils still have much to attain, but by the time they are full fledged ra- tion book holders they will have gained the experiences and knowl- edge necessary for the tasks con- fronting them. When these spares registred as junior high students, they met new worlds to conquer. With diligence, conscientious efforts, and sympathet- ic guidance they have approached one point nearer their goal. Many of them have demonstrated various abilities and qualities which lead to success and happiness. In the intra-school athletic contests the junior high teams learned the value of team work, cooperativeness and good sportsmanship. In their classroom activities, not only did they acquire subject information and abil- ity to think and to reason, but also did they discover the values of ac- cepting responsibilities, thus prepar- ing themselves for the days when they will become book holders. 22 23 fciiawiiiiinwmtiim CALENDAR HIGH AND LOW POINTS OF THE YEAR SEPTEMBER 5.

We rounded a corner and at the first door Knocked three times and then once more. The door slowly opened, two eyes peered out. That this was Joe, we had no doubt. We told him our mission and showed him our cash. He supplied us with coupons as quick as a flash. Then off to the corner gas station we flew In our shining helicopter of maroon and blue. With a filled tank and a clear sky ahead We set forth to find where our future paths led. We flew and we flew for a night and a day Till in year fifty-five we decided to stay. Down, down from the sky our helicopter came And settled in a town. Token Center by name. There we descended to the main thoroughfare And warmly were welcomed by Greenwood, the mayor, Attended by Julia, his sweet secretary, Still undecided as to which man to marry. Flowers were given by Irene Poyser to all. Inviting each at her floral shop to call. Whizzed off in a taxi by June Ballentine, We sought Wiler ' s restaurant in order to dine. Rooms were reserved at Laign ' s tourist home Before we began the city to roam. From Connor ' s bctnk we secured a loan. Then through the business district we were shown. We went off to McCorkel ' s Five and Dime, Managed by Dorothy Gentry — when she has time. Passed Betty Weaver ' s pawn shop for rings And on to Mcintosh ' s radio station, where Helen Oliver sings. Editor Brumbaugh, hearing of our arrival in town. To secure a story, sent her reporter right down. The story went in over Jo Ransom ' s phone, Acclaimed by all nation ' s to have the best tone. Dill ' s Matrimonial Bureau furnished first aid For any old bachelor and any old maid. To provide the rings for such an event Jones ' jewelry store was a place heaven sent. After bruises and bangs at Williams ' Dance Studio, To the morgue run by Whirledge one and all go. Behler, the barber, a man of renown. Supplied all the gossip and news of the town, Wilbur, the owner of Simpson ' s Hall, Furnished billiards, bowling, and a recration for all. For every young person, thirteen or above, O ' Brien ' s Canteen is a place they all love. No more they had " Hoimans " — now they have Hector. Tom Muhn has succeeded as garbage collector. By Ed ' s " little woman " he ' s considered quite nice. Vaughn ' s the man who delivers their ice. For puddings and pastries and things good to eat, With Jenkins ' bakery none can compete. No ration points needed, no blue points or red. Trade at DePew ' s to be money ahead. For new clothes of the moment, see Hughes ' display. If old ones need cleaning, contact Harry today. For feminine hair-do all try Elmo ' s Shop, He can give new life to any old mop. Rivets and bolts came from Kleemon ' s hardware, Harold ' s still grinning under wavy blond hair. At snapping pictures, " Bugs " Souders is best. His poor old camera has no rest. Jeannette Hays supervises the local Red Cross. Of the Children ' s Day Nursery, Hillegass is the boss. At McKinley ' s show, the ladies swoon, Sinatra and Crosby are still able to croon. Dr. Wilma Smith cures pains and ills. Patients receive red liquids and pink pills. Griffith, Dawson, and Worman are her nurses. They hold patients ' hands and recite clever verses. 26 PROPHECY Joan Gorrell is Jay ' s right arm, She keeps the budget for Yarde ' s Dairy Farm. Don Chittenden supplies Token Center with fruit. His big, rosy apples can ' t fail to suit. Kenneth Fitch, the police chief of the town. Has shown his skill in the thieves he ' s run down. Dick Wise, who prosecutes the thugs and crooks. Obtained his knowledge from Bush ' s library books. Ellington ' s playing is welcomed by all. She can be heard from Carnegie Hall. At Left-Handed Art School Moats and Lung can be found. The work of their pupils the world does astound. Magnesium is produced at Howell ' s plant night and day, His new method has lessened both the smell and the pay. Hoover and Stiles make old gum like new. They guarantee i t will crack in an instant or two. Marshall Hall serves as the town ' s veterinary And dances around for both cow and canary. Sunday morning at dinger ' s church finds a crowd; One rule for attendants: No snoring aloud. After skating around at Freeze ' s Roller Rink, The gang stops in Best ' s Drugs for a coke to drink. The swank country club owned by the Lewis twins Is kept busy each day after summer begins. Ashenfelter and Hassett, contractors for hire. Built T. C. H. S., a place all admire. Don Winebrenner, superintendent of schools. Has for teachers and pupils some very strict rules. Harold Custer, the coach of each athletic team. Produces boys who in their class ore supreme. Leola Sechler, who directs the band. Charms all with her music, which is much in demand. Roger Leeson, the fire chief, has men in command Who, w hen playing checkers, are the best in the land. For those who hunt wild game out of season, Paul Bloom has a fine if they don ' t have a reason. To know all the gossip and hold a job that ' s not hard, Lloyd Turnbull the mailman, reads each post- card. For him who owns a gun and can drive a car, Helen Leeson ' s club is not very far. Alice Foote as a diplomat served in each foreign court And was home for a rest in Burtch ' s summer resort. To sell us insurance, Maxine Snyder did strive, Against harm and loss on our return to the year forty-five. To make our helicopter all spick and span, Sullivan, the mechanic, was truly our man. We climbed aboard and to all waved goodbye, Before leaving Token Center for our flight through the sky. Back, back, o ' er the years in our helicopter we sped, Till the bright lights of Garrett were seen straight ahead. We quietly landed and went off on our way. Not forgetting a moment where our future paths lay. 27 JOKES NEWS OF THE STOCK MARKET Razor transactions sharp during the past week. Elevators fluctuating tre- mendously, with sudden rises and drops.

As a branch of the National Y. W. C. A., the Girl Reserve Club has a definite aim and goal in life. " To face life squarely, " and " To find and give the best " are the objectives. Each girl is proud to be a Girl Reserve and tries to keep the " valuation " of the club high. This year was a full and active one, with two dinners, a sand- wich sales, and a bake sale being the financial activities. Under the leadership of Miss Thrush and Miss Macklin, each of the fifty-five members had an enjoyable year. Some of the " points " of social interest were the novel Sadie Hawkins ' Day party, the Silver Moon Skating party, the G. R. - Hi-Y Valentine party, the May Day Ceremonial, and the mother-daughter dinner party. You ' ll find " a word, a smile, and a winning way, " a phrase from a favorite G. R. song, to be a description of what G. R. ' s like to be, and you ' ll find that " G. R. spirit, pep, and go, " are definitely not rationed. 30 BLUE TRIANGLE First row: Marjory Strock, Delores Gilbert, Evelyn Smith, Marjory Newman, Helen Ransom, Donna Mollis, Phyllis DePew, Barbara Simpson, Leah Malcolm.

Blue Triangle, the junior organization of Girl Reserve, is valid for all freshman and sophomore girls. The club fosters the learning of good conduct, the creating of friendly and cooperative attitudes among its members, and the preparing for active partic- ipation in community affairs. Variation from week to week in the programs makes the club both interesting and worth while. The major project for the year consisted of selling war bonds and stamps at the red, white, and blue booth in the school hall. Another project, in which the girls did not ration the use of shoe stamp three, was the selling of cards and wrappings. Some of the social activities sponsored by the Blue Triangle girls were the mother-daughter tea, the Hallowe ' en party, the roller skating party, the after-the-basketball dances, and the spring ceremonial. Officers for the school year were: Marjorie Fenstermaker, president; Mary Hall, vice president; Mary Lou Smith, secretary; Carolyn Lewis, treasurer; Mrs. Meier, sponsor. 31 H I Seated.

These days are days of rationed oppor- tunities and equal sharing for everyone, and so it is in the Hi-Y Club, where opportunities, experiences, and Hi-Y ethics ore shared for the benefit and enjoyment of the club mem- bers, student body, and faculty. The Hi-Y ' s purpose and slogan were stamped permanently in the minds of the new boys who were initiated into Hi-Y this year. Not only club members, but also all G. H. S. students caught a little of the Hi-Y ' s spirit when they saw the new members bow- ing to the older boys and heard throughout the halls, " Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Scholarship, and Clean Living, " the slogan of the Hi-Y, and " To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and com- munity high standards of Christian charac- ter, " the Hi-Y ' s purpose. The members sold basketball schedule pencils not only to add to the Hi-Y treasury, but also to present to the student body a 32 convenient reminder of the games. To foster good sportsmanship and to share social enjoyment, the Hi-Y sponsored the first " After Basketball Dance. " We shall cherish the memories of numerous dances, parties and get-togethers. In January the club had a party for the boys who left for the armed forces before the end of the school year. And who could forget the " G. R. - Hi-Y Valentine Party, " or the " Me and My Gal Banquet " held at the Presbyterian church, or the " Send off Party " that the Junior members rationed to the Seniors? True to one of our traditions, the Hi-Y boys again presented messages to the student body during the Lenten period. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Rose and the leadership of Thomas Muhn, president; Don- ald Winebrenner, vice president; Kenneth Fitch, secretary, and John Behler, treasurer, the Hi-Y club enjoyed a prosperous and pleasant club year.

Learning to raise crops and to care for live- stock for which points are paid, is the pri- mary function of the F.F.A. organization. Other purposes of the club are to develop leadership, to improve country life, and to build a more permanent agricultural foun- dation for our nation. No other organization in Garrett High School has done so much as the Future Farmers toward the war effort. This group of boys disregarded all ceilings of endeavor in their efforts to help in the war emergency. With the installation of an agricultural shop the boys repaired broken parts of irreplace- able farm machinery and restored the imple- ments to working order. On the national milkweed pod drive, which was for the pur- pose of collecing essential material for life preservers, Garrett ' s F.F.A. group went over the top in the number of pounds that they collected. When the Class of ' 45 sponsored a scrap drive to earn some money and to " Get in the Scrap, to Slap the Jap, " again the Fu- ture Farmers were all hands out to make the project a success. The club hatched pheasant eggs and distributed the birds throughout the rural areas as a part of the conservation project. In the hunting season these birds furnished targets for ambitious hunters who were a little low on meat points. Roller skating parties, ice skating parties, wiener roasts, and basketball games offered recreation throughout the year for the club members. The highlight of the recreational activity was a Donkey Basketball Game which left a deep impression on the minds and, in some instances, on the bodies of the boys. The F.F.A. club is under the advisership of Mr. Bateman, and the leadership of Harold Custer, president; Harold Kleeman, vice president; Joseph Hasset, secretary; and Howard Ashenfelter, treasurer. 33 THE BAND Front row: Gareth Reese, Robert Foulk, Joyce Barnes, Darrelene Bragenton, Rosemary Smith, Pearl Gerner, Sylvia Wor- man, Howard Hicks, Margaret Weideman, Dorothy Brumbaugh, Raymond Souder, Janet Engle, Jimmy Ho-ward, Harold Diederich, Doris Yarde, Richard Ober.

The Music Department of Garrett High School consists of the Band, the Girls ' Glee Club, and the Boys ' Glee Club, all of which are under the capable direction of Miss Stemen. These groups have been the source of many fine programs throughout the school year. The Band ' s peppy selections aroused much school spirit at the home basketball games. The impressive flag-raising ceremony creat- ed an atmosphere of loyalty and strength. The drum major and majoretts were high- lights of interest whenever they exhibited their twirling ability.

Commencement, and Baccalaureate. Officers of the chorus were: Betty Weaver, president; Joan Elling- ton, vice president; Dorothy Gentry, secre- tary-treasurer; Sylvia Worman, librarian. The highlight activity of the Boy ' s Glee Club was its presentation in the Junior Chau- tauqua of the special feature, " The Barber Shop Quartet. " The boys also united with the Girl ' s Glee Club in presenting the an- nual programs. Officers of the club were: Harold Custer, president; Gerald Whirledge, vice president; Marshall Hall, secretary- treasurer; Thomas Muhn, librarian. These organizations furnished opportunity for students to place their talents before the public, thereby stimulating the development of personality and character. The members of the organizations were honored by the Tri Kappa Sorority in having tickets presented to them to attend programs of outstanding concert artists with the Fort Wayne Civic Symphony. 35 BIBLE STUDY CLUB First rovv- Lois Davidson, Ruth Deihl, Ilien Bloom, Elmo Simpson, Marilyn Greenwalt, Mrs. Pelchrzim. Second row: Winifred Lewis, Carolyn Lewis, Philmer Anderson, Donald Eldridge, Vera Howey. To develop a greater interest in Bible reading and to gain a better understanding of the Bible, the Bible Study Club, under the direction of Mrs. Pelchrzim, has been an influence among the " Points of ' 45. " With the motto, " God ' s way is the best way, " and the verse, " He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is Love, " the mem- bers of the organization discussed Bible questions and studied outstanding characters of the book. They concentrated much of their interest on the Book of John in their weekly meetings. The club united with the American Bible Society in encourag- ing nationwide Bible reading from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Officers of the club were: Marilyn Greenwalt, president; Elmo Simpson, vice president; Ruth Deihl, secretary-treasurer. 36 LIBRARIANS Front row: Miss Macklin, Virginia Chittenden, Belty Brinkman, Grace Bush, Mary Bair, Donna Wiler. Second row: Joanne Sell, Eulalee Busz, Colleen Miller, Dorothy Brumbaugh, Alice Foote. Third row: Jean Dills, Carolyn Lewis, Martha Schulthess, Vincent Bartlett, Elmo Simpson. Useful " points " is the term to apply to the librarians who as- sisted Miss Macklin in handling Garrett High School ' s voluminous selection of books. These students not only checked the books in and out, but rendered service in keeping the shelves neat, mend- ing books, helping other students to find specific materials, and handling new books as they came in. The librarians were graded on their work and received a credit a year if they served a period each day in the library. 37 BOOSTER CLUB First row: Marilyn Connor, Betty Brinkman, Raymond Souder, Patricia Owens. Second row: Loren Ashenfelter, Patricia Van Lear, Dorothy Martin, Miss Hafiner, Wilma Smith, Henry Zecca. The Booster Club has a " high point valuel " It has shown its colors many times during the year. Booster Club members were selected from all the classes in school with Miss Haffner as the sponsor. There were " nine point- ers " at the beginning of the year, two representatives from each of the three upper high school classes, and one representative each from the freshman class, the eighth grade, and the seventh grade. The membership boomed near the first of December, when other students had a nopportunity to join. As " tokens " of member- ship , maroon and blue emblems were given to each new Booster. Proving that the Boosters deserved this high " point evaluation, " they made a record sale of tickets for Garrett ' s first home football game with Portland. They cooperated to the fullest extent in the Junior Red Cross drive by making worthwhile announcements and collecting contributions from the various home rooms of the school. " Point value " went up with the return of the basketball season, for the Boosters aided in the sale of one hundred thirty basketball season tickets. As the club continued its work throughout the year, it proved that its helpful ideas and cooperative spirit were not " rationed. " In its third year of existence it stayed a " high pointer. " 38 QUILL AND SCROLL First row: Betty McKinley, Betty Weaver, LeAnna Freeze, Dorothy Brumbaugh, Miss Evard. Second row: Marjorie Burtch, Julia Reynolds, Joan Ellington, Thomas Muhn, Donald Winebrenner, Pat- rick O ' Brien. The Quill and Scroll Club, sponsored by Miss Evard, consist- eed of members of the journalism class of 1943-44. The officers were; president, Joan Ellington; vice president, Betty Weaver; secretary-treasurer, Pat O ' Brien. This " ten-pointer club " with the cooperation of the " O.P.A. " of G.H.S. was able to have a full and happy year by sponsoring several parties, general assemblies, and by getting into the swing of several other projects. The members met every Monday the eighth period and co- operated with the journalism class in their work. The Quill and Scroll originated in 1942, when the Panorama was organized and appeared in the Garrett Clipper. Robert Weideman was the first president, and in the very beginning this club was a " high-pointer " with a " high valuation. " The first con- stitution was adopted in April of 1942 and the preamble reads, " We, the members of the Quill and Scroll, in order to form an or- ganization to foster the ideals of better journalism, do adopt this constitution for the Panorama Chapter of the Quill and Scroll of the Garrett High School. " " Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you " is the motto of the club. The colors are maroon and blue, the school colors. The white rose, which is a token of justice, is the flower. 39 rrmwTgBiinrmnTTm ATHLETIC CLUBS First row: Mr. Harmon, Mr. Flora .DsWayne Warstler, George Pearson, Allen Souder, Raymond Souder, William Johns- ton, Bernard Pence, Clarence Smith, Ned Schlosser, Mr. Bateman.

Athletics in Garrett High School have risen gradu- ally through the years and no-w are approaching the ceiling of athletic achievement. The Athletic Cluh has endeavored to further the knowledge of athletics and to develop interest in all sports throughout the school. Programs designed to achieve the Athletic Club ' s purpose have been presented to the club Talks on rulings handed do-wn by the I.H.S.A.A., data on the tournament teams, movies showing the part ath- letics plays in the war effort, and other phases of athletics, are a few of the high points. Mr. Minniear gave the boys a few points on eligi- bility for athletes as set down by the Indiana High School Athletic Association. Eligibility is only a small part of the athletic set up in Indiana, he point- ed out. Mr. Minniear said that Indiana ranks high among the states in athletic management and super- vision. Mr. Harman, Mr. Bateman, and Mr. Flora are the sponsors of the Athletic Club, and the officers are: Marshall Hall, president; Harold Custer, vice presi- dent; and John Behler, secretary-treasurer. Playing basketball was the main activity of the G-A.C. this year. Wholesome fun and clean revelry were practiced in their evening league games. The leaguers were captained by Helen Leeson, Martha dinger, Lenore Lewis, Mary Lou Schlosser, Helen Hill, and Marjorie Burtch. To conclude the year, the losing teams held a party for the winning teams. The officers were: president, Wilma Smith; vice president, Martha dinger; secretary-treasurer, Betty Weaver; and sponsor.

Stamped as an organization where things are accomplished, the Scout Club has lived up to the reputation. Learning to build fires, mapping, pathfinding, and first aid technique are just a few of the activities which are de- serving of merit badges and personal recog- nition for a Boy Scout. Mastering as much training as possible in order to prepare for future life is the purpose of scouting. At periodic times throughout the year, a Court of Honor is held and those scouts who deserve advancement and those who have earned merit badges are given their awards. District Camporees for scouts in the Anthony Wayne area are held annually, and the boys in Garrett ' s Scout Club will be well repre- sented this year. In the past, Garrett ' s Scouts have proved themselves very capable and have carried off the highest honors. This year will prove no exception, because the boys work hard and have a will to learn. Collecting waste paper throughout the community is one of the major projects. By gathering up used paper at a time when paper is hard to obtain, this club helps in the war effort. Older boys, who once were scouts and who now are in the armed forces, have told how much the training in this club has help- ed them. Some things these boys have learn- ed which hav e proven of assistance in the armed forces are: to cook under bad condi- tions, to guide themselves by the stars, to tie knots, and to make the best of the materials at hand. Scout activities and the Scout Club are under the guidance and sponsorship of Mr. Woodcox, with Kenneth Fitch, Junior Assist- ant Scout Master, and Raymond Souder, Senior Patrol Leader of the club. 41 ■ ai YEARBOOK STAFF Front row: Raymond Souder, Julia Reynolds, Thomas Muhn, Joan Ellington, Richard V ise.

The Yearbook Staff, with the cooperation of the entire class, . has worked ardently to make this book a reality. Long hours of careful planning and of diligent work on the part of those who were elected to assume the various staff positions were unselfish- ly consumed. The supervisors of this project. Miss Thrush, Mr. Flora, and Miss Gump, deserve much recognition for their time and efforts. Miss Thrush, who served as literary and compilatory adviser, was always considerate and pleasant to work with. As business man- ager, Mr. Flora carefully organized materials and sought econ- omical methods. His enthusiasm and good humor were always in evidence. Miss Gump managed the task of getting the copy typed in its last analysis. Her quick eye for catching errors made ac- curacy count in the Aeolian. It is with great satisfaction that the staff presents the " Points of ' 45 " to the students and patrons of Garrett High School. 42 43 irm nnnimiTnTTninwiWMiiwTi VALUABLE BLUE POINTS " C - - i- - vf;:ff ' Front row; Charles Davis, William Johnston, Nerval Withro-w, Ned Schlosser, Clarence South, Gerald Johnson, Richard Sarber, Henry Zecca, Gene Custer, Bernard Pence, Robert McKinley, David Grimm, Stanley Bonnett.

At the beginning of the football season, prospects for turning Garrett High School ' s valuable " Blue Points " into an unbeatable aggregation seemed highly favorable. The Railroaders stamped themselves as a smoothly working team. Opening the season at home, Garrett stopped a good, but somewhat young and inexperienced team from Portland, 20-0, and the number of points on " Victory " was one. Traveling to Bluffton the following week, those " Blue Points " really earned their ration books as they played a heavier line and back- field from Bluffton off their feet and stamped home with a 20-0 win. " Victory " was raised to two points and everyone was happy. Either Garrett wasn ' t get- ting the proper amount of vitamins, or Warsaw knew of a good " Black Market, " for those Tigers kept the points on " Victory " the same as they hoarded the ball and earned a 29-0 win. Disaster floated into the " Blue Pointers " camp as the Railroaders won from Columbia City, 25-7, but lost the services of Lloyd Turn- bull, who threw his " meathook " out of place and was laid up until the Auburn game. Anyway, the points on " Victory " went up to 3, for which everyone seem- ed happy. Before the Decatur game, Lawrence " Cotton " Bowmar met with a serious automobile accident and left G.H.S. without a quarterback or left half. Coach Harmon shifted his lineup, putting Fitch at quarterback, and Whirledge from end to a halfback spot in time to hand Decatur a 18-0 defeat and raise the points on " Victory " to four. Central ' s " B " team almost upset the dinner table at Garrett by coming within six points of Garrett as Coach Harmon and Assistant Coach Bateman used the second stringer. Final score was 26-20 and points on " Victory " climbed to five as the student body licked its chops in preparation for a tasty season. Playing Goshen ' s team off its feet the second half after fall- mg behind 14-0 at the half way mark, those breadwinners from G.H.S. played in Goshen ' s territory the remainder of the game and the score ended 14-0 in Goshne ' s favor. " Victory " remained five points. Auburn ' s Red Devils capitalized on a break in the second quarter and pushed over a touchdown; then they rationed out the points sparingly and the game ended 7-0 in Auburn ' s favor. Both Garrett and Auburn played clean football and much comment was ex- pressed by both coaches and players on the sportsmanlike way the game was played. Garrett High School ' s football record was five wins and three defeats and it appeared as if the ceiling price on " Victory " was five points. 44 VALUABLE BLUE POINTS LETTERMEN JOHN BEHLER— Sr., fullback and quarter- back. Captain " Pete " usually called the plays for the team. His wise selection of plays, plus his speed and drive, made him a valuable player. Three year letterman. WILBUR SIMPSON— Sr., guard.

Back row; Mr. Harmon, Gerald V hi lodge, Edwin Vaughn, Kenneth Fitch, Marshall Hall, Haroldean Kelly, Mr. Bateman. TOM MUHN— Sr., 6 ft., forward. Co-Captain " Tom " could score from any position, but one handed close shots were his specialty. Three year letterman. EDWIN VAUGHN— Sr., 5 ft., 10 in., forward. Co-Captain " Edard " was known as the player who never made a common shot. Re- gardless of how he shot, " Ed " could be counted on to make baskets. Two year letter- man.

GERALD WHIRLEDGE — Sr., 5 ft., 10 in., guard. " Herk " took over his position well when needed. His specialties were left-hand- ed shots and long shots. One year letterman. 46 VALUABLE RED POINTS Garrett High School ' s " Red Points " began the basketball season looking a little rusty on shooting and passing, but after the kinks were straightened out, the Railroaders went on to defeat some worthy opponents and to fix themselves as a point value to be reckoned with, when the price of victory was at stake. Ashley invaded the Railroaders ' court for the locals ' first game and those " Red Points " stamped victory number one in the book as they beat Ashley 44-31 . Garrett ' s passing and basket-shooting proved very faulty against the Decatur Yellow Jackets, but the boys from Decatur were off on their shooting also, and the Railroaders stamped victory number two in the book, as they won their first N.E.I.C. game of the year by a score of 38-23. Huntertown ' s Wildcats were " out after bear " as they played the " Red Points " to a standstill and went home with a well deserved 32-25 victory. Staving off a last half rally of the K ' ville Comets, the Red Points scraped by with a 40-39 win. Traveling to Butler, the boys in Maroon and Blue couldn ' t hold a lead over the Windmills and lost 29-30. Coming back strong against Fremont, Garrett scored fifty points and whipped the Eagles 50-29. Those Red Points kept on rolling and swamped Angola ' s Hornets 50-33 and victory number five was in the book. Berne ' s Bears came to town and went home victorious by a 37-42 score. Avilla ' s Panthers came back fighting in the second half and lost an uphill battle 41-37 as Garrett sank two buckets in the closing minutes. Kendollville went down to defeat 39-35 at the hands of the Railroaders for the second time in a season. Garrett couldn ' t stay with the Red Devils from Auburn and they lost 29-38 for the Red Points ' worst defeat of the year. Without the services of John Behler, regular Garrett guard, the Angola Hornets avenged an earlier loss and they won 36-45. Bluffton ' s Tigers proved too tough on their own floor, and coupled with Garrett ' s inconsistency at the basket, the Tigers won 37-47 and Garrett had lost three in a row. Hitting from all angles and everybody scoring, the Red Points defeated Waterloo ' s Wildcats 42-31. Colum- bia City also went down to defeat the same week, 45-37. Butler lost Bellamy and Garrett won by a wide margin, 42-32. Making the long trip to Hartford City proved no obstacle and G.H.S. won 48-32 as the boys finally began to pour in the baskets. John Behler left a day before the Avilla game to enter the armed services, but Garrett finally edged out a 22-20 in an uphill battle. This season ended with G.H.S. having a won and lost record of twelve wins and six losses. Tournament play brought Butler and Garrett together for the third time and Garrett won 32-22. Playing again in the evening and looking a little tired, Garrett fell before Angola 33-42, and therefore bowed out of the tourney. Auburn eventually won the sectional and regional but lost to Muncie Central at Muncie. 47 SPARES Sitting: Robert Treech, Howard Simpson, Charles Argubright, Nerval Withrow, Clarence Smith. Second row: Gerald Carper, Ned Schlosser, Joseph DeVeny, Charles Davis, William Johnston, Gerald Johnson. Third row: Alan Souder, Lester Babbitt, Earl Clark, Beryl Lewis, Richard Sarber, William Worster, George Pearson. Basketball teams that win is Garrett High School ' s goal, and to accomplish this, a supply of " Red Points, " which will be valid at a future date, is needed. G.H.S. ' s second team has shown by its early season games that definite basketball material is at hand, but that teamwork, which is all important for a winning combi- nation, is still lacking. Playing together and many practices will gradually lead to a bet- ter working organization. Much is expected from the boys in the future. Beryl Lewis, senior, plays center on the varsity this year and when called upon, he is always ready and willing to do his part. Earl Clark, sophomore, plays a center po- sition and he is developing into a good re- bound man and offensive threat. William Worster, junior, plays forward and his one-handed push shots keep Garrett in the win column. Lester Babbitt, junior, is a forward on the second team and shows that he will be ready to take over a first team spot when needed. Alan Souder, sophomore, is a one hand push shot artist and he can be counted on to deliver needed baskets. Richard Sarber, sophomore, plays back guard and can stop opponents ' baskets with a good degree of success. Gerald Johnson, sophomore, is a scrappy ball player and has shown that he can be counted on for future years. All the other members of the second team saw action and gained experience needed to develop into valid " Red Points. " Mr. Bateman and Mr. Flora ably coached the second team and taught these boys the fundamentals of good basketball. 48 TRACK Sitting: Kenneth Fitch, Harold Custer, Wayne Creager. Standing: Charles Kinsey, Donald Cleland, Gerald Whirledge, Harold Ross, DeWayne Warstler. Hampered by a lack of material, G.H.S.

Dick was most generous with the use of his voice and " Dawn " and " Pat " always display- ed enthusiasm along with good sportsmanship. Bouquets to the yell leaders for their fine teamwork in stirring up pep from the boosters. 50 51 WILL We, the members of the senior class of Garrett High School, Garrett, Indiana, do hereby will our foolishness, silliness, and all other high school possessions to the under- classmen.
