" June is Busting Out All Over " In Memoriarn ” ' Mid youth and song, feasting and carnival. Through laughter, through the roses, as of old Comes Death, on shadowy and relentless feet ' Virginia Chittenden started her high school career with us as a freshman, pursuing the College Preparatory Course. She participated actively in class room projects and made many friends about school. We regret that we are not privileged to list her as one to complete the senior year with us. 16 Class History As we star performers, the Seniors of ' 46, stop to view the pass¬ ing parade of events in G. H. S., we think of the pleasures and ex¬ periences of our previous acts, of our successful ventures and some failures, and of the new acquaintances we have encountered. When we were punks and amateur performers, we struggled through our preliminary training, ever looking forward to our part as star performers. We were welcomed into the Big Top as Kinkers with a party given by the Sophomores. During this act we organized our class and school program, carefully keeping an eye on our expectations in future performances. Graduated to the Joey act, we found ourselves in the full swing of things and gave ourselves a " Sophomore Spring Splash. " As Stand-Ins we tasted the first real test for our ability to keep the show going. During this performance we chose class rings, presented a comical “Junior Chautauqua " . By selling candy at noon; pop, potato chips, and hot dogs at games, we were able to highlight the close of this act by financing and presenting a " Junior-Senior Banquet " in a gay way-out-west style. Beginning our fourth and final performance in the G. H. S. Big Top as Star Performers, we were confronted with the usual Sen or problems. We chose our class motto, " For all your days prepare and meet them ever alike " ; flower, scarlet carnation; and colors, scarlet and gray; selected class sweaters of scarlet and gray; made year¬ book plans; and successfully presented a class play, " Second Fiddle. " Ending our happiest, most eventful performance in G H S. was a banquet given for us by the Junior class. Now as we prepare to go out into an even bigger performance of making our way in the world, we fully realize the importance of our school days and acquaintanceships. We find our experiences to be happy memories and we are wholly reluctant to leave the G H S. " Big Top. " Side—left to right: Is there water in that tub, Mary Louise? . . .

It ' s a Barnum and Bailey world when all the Juniors get together with the idea of " starting the ball rolling. " Looking toward their future as star performers, these G. H. S. Stand-ins wisely set up their money-making routine. After long hours of ardent work for the success of their first important task, the Juniors satisfactorily presented to the spectators their musical comedy, ampaign by selling their " pink lemonade, pop-ampaign by selling their " pink lemonade, pop¬ corn, and peanuts " at football and basketball games and at noon during the lunch hour. With the cooperation of every Junior trooper and under the advice of their gaffers Mr. Bateman, Mrs. Sweeney, and Mr. Lewis, the Juniors were able to present the Seniors with a unique banquet, entertaining and pleasing to the last minute. The executives of their group, Gerald Johnson, president; Richard Drews, vice-presi¬ dent; and Beverly Haffner, secretary-treasurer; were largely responsible for the cooperative spirit of the class as a whole as they helped to " carry the show on " all through this year. With such " Stand-ins " to fill their shoes, the Seniors are proud and willing to relinquish their part under " The Big Top " as star performers to such a deserving group of troopers. 18 Joeys Without " joeys ' ' in the parade of the " Big Top " things just wouldn ' t be complete, for pleasure has its part in school life just as work. Although the Sophomores have a reputation of being full of fun and mischief, they also have their times of getting down to business. Cooperation in all school activities was one of their characteristics. Early in the year, they entertained the Freshmen with a skating party. Next year these active " kinkers " will get their real taste of entertainment for they will step into the shoes of the Juniors. Helping to make their class " tops " have been the class officers, Norval Withrow, presi¬ dent; Charles Hartle, vice-president; Jane Owens, secretary; Joyce Barnes, treasurer; and their sponsors, Miss Johns, Miss Evard, and Mr. Rose. 1st Row—Glen Nodine, Gerald Carper, Lee Cook, Emmett Traxler, Robert Treesh, lames Ferguson, Dale Schulthess, George Pearson, Roy Creager, Ned Schlosser. 2nd Row—Charles Argubright, Lloyd Myers, Robert Panning, Marjorie Newman, Joyce Barnes, Rosa Bloom, Marjorie Zoll, Barbara Simpson, Evelyn Smith, Gloria Meyers, Clarence Smith. 3rd Row—Frank Tuttle, James Garrison, William Ballentine, Dale Olinger, Robert Sliger, William Johnston, Joseph DeVeny, Richard Ober, Vincent Bartlett, David Grimm, Robert Mossberger, Thomas Leeson, Ballard Leins. 4th Row—Jane Owens, Phyllis Beck, Barbara Krider, Mary Sue Laign, Nora Dennis, JoAnne Sell, Diane Hop¬ kins, Marilyn Heinlin, Margaret Smith, Margaret Weideman, Esther Stevens, Irma Stohl, Dorothy Martin, Margaret Traxler. 5th Row—William Ervin, Norval Withrow, Ross Howey, Earl Schlotterback, Edwin Mortorff, Howard Simp¬ son, Richard Hollis, Richard Haynes, Franklin Damman, Donald Eldridge, Marion Souder, Charles Davis. 19 Kinkers With four years of work ahead of them, these " kinkers " stepped easily into the position left to them by last year ' s freshmen and set out to accomplish their freshman duties. There was no false " make-up " in their way of entertaining the spectators for they all took a special study program in personality from such advisors as Mrs. Fouch, Mr. Harmon, and Mr. Woodcox each eighth period on Tuesday during their guidance program. Promoting their debut, the " kinkers " pushed themselves into third place as salesmen in the Magazine Drive, thus entitling them entrance in the " marquee " instead of the back- stage door. Helping their class into the " headlines " of G. H. S. life were the freshman offi¬ cers: James Moses, president; William Mavity, vice-president; Janet Engle, sec ' y-treasurer. There is no reason for failure in the program of the " Big Top " with these " kinkers " following closely behind. 1st Row—Jimmie Schramm, Arnold Dose, Joe Myers, Norman Runion, William Turner, Robert Donley, Kess Crager, Theron Tuttle, Kenneth Sliger. 2nd Row—Mary Maggert, Delores Boester, Marcine Ashenfelter, William Mavity, Blaine Peters, Bobby Rott- ger, Billy Hofferman, Jack Thrush, Charles Waterbeck, Billy Putt, Ronald Williams. 3rd Row—Martha Bloom, Ann Greenwalt, Erma Haffner, Joan Gilbert, Joanne Bleck, Florine Bush, Joan Hel- bert, Margaret Fee, Donna Shirk, Marjorie Bartles, Dorothy Day, Marilyn Brown, Doris Silberg, Susanna Nicholas, Benjamin Pulver. 4th Row—Jeannette Fenstermaker, Marilyn Conner, Gle.nna Snyder, Deloris Luttman, Bertha Peterson, Esther Davidson, Kathleen Murphy, Elnora Smith, Sarah McCarter, Eula May Freeman, Janet Engle, Fa.inie May Rowe, Carolyn Stroh, Shirley Grimm, Wilma Godwin. 5th Row—Warren Hall, Basil Rowe, Dale Yarde, Frank Sarpa, Richard Kruger, Freddie Gingrich, James Travis, Melvin Diederich, Dwayne Harris, John Walter, Tommy DeWitt, Martin Woodcox, James Moses. 20 Amateur Performers 1st Row—Robert Stiles, Gareth Ree:e, Douglas Shull, Kenneth Strock, Royce Higgins, Howard Hicks, Ken¬ neth Treesh, Howard Bonnett, Raymond Hauck, Wayne Diederich, Maynard Clark, Donald Gentry. 2nd Row—Sue Ann Rowe Phyllis Leech, Patricia Smith, Patricia Bartlett, Sharon Rahrig, Beverly Barnhart, Pamela Freygang, Patricia Steward, Jeanne Snyder, Gretel Heinzerling, DeVeta Miller, Joyce Scofield, Cleota Rodebaugh, Barbara Treesh. 3rd Row—Jacqueline Roberts, Marilyn Wyatt, Barbara Klinger, Marilyn Haffner, Anita Dills, Janet Limpcrt, Patricia Owen, Audrey Kelley, Barbara Bechtol, Patricia Griffin, Martha Oliver, Glenna Jean Fuller, Nancy Hays, Barbara Engle, Mary Wilson. 4th Row—Douglas Zimmerman, James Smurr, Robert Schurr, Robert Diederich, Orville Fletcher, David S er- ling, Jack Clark, Raymond Hammond, Donald Woodward, Jack Clady, Robert Foulk. Well on the way to “stardom " are these rollicking, likable “amateur performers " under the “Big Top " . Although amateur performers usually do not help build the show, but this group certainly did its share in putting over the Christmas program and the Magazine Drive. With such efficient leadership from Mr. Coble, Mr. Manges, and Mr. Dunkin, who was succeeded by Miss Biggerstaff, it is no wonder that these " amateurs " were good boost¬ ers in school programs and activities. 1st Row—Gary McPheeters, George Mayfield, William Stevens, Ronald Beebe, William Leech, Bernard Mey¬ ers, Henry Snyder, Leslie Harper, William Rowe, Patrick Lonergan, Robert Baumgardner, Richard Best. 2nd Row—Mary Lou Clark, Colleen Williams, Ann McBride, Donna Steininger, Berneice Stroh, Jeannette Andrews, Lily May Deal, Marilyn Beebe, Alice Griffin, Artie Mae Hopkins, Gwyn Wade, Katrina Heinzer¬ ling, Jo Ann Mitchell, Bonald Cole, Ned Zimmerman. 3rd Row—Richard Dame, Hudson Hays, Franklin Mossberger, Melvin Treesh, Richard Furnish, Dorothy Crowl, Delores Hollis, Dale Loutzenhiser, Paul Perry, Dean Wolfe, Jessica Lewis, Judith Schulthess, Betty Andrews, Evelyn Wilson, John Feagler. 21 Punks 1st Row—Oscar Day, Howard Nott, Richard Harding, Richard Bickel, Gerald Beebe, Jerry Needham, David Laign, Donna Bon- nett, Barbara Bickel, Larry Baker, Don Getts, Duane Lepard, Tommy Hendrickson, Dean Scofield, Albert Smith. 2nd Row—Kent Gordon, Jimmy Hammond, Evan Roberts, Shirley Cramer, Betty Cleland, Cleotha Andrews, Leotha Andrews, Shirley Butler, Kay LaFollette, Rita Hopkins, Violet Deal, Sarah Andrews, Betty Weimer, Larry Lantz, John Waterbeck, Glenn Warfield. 3rd Row—Treva Greenwalt, Gloria Gilbert, Gwyneth Manges, Judy Burtch, Madelin Miller, Mary Jane Fletcher, Shirley Fuller, Josephine Clark, Joyce Getts, Norma Kugler, Carolyn Withrow, Betty Deal, Beverly Travis, Carleen Barnhart, Joan Rimmell, Phyllis Safewright, Thais Ervin, Marceille Beebe, Caroline Nodine. 4th Row—Jack Rahrig, Raymond Siders, Robert Weimer, Wilford Esselburn, James Zumbrunnan, Richard Laign, Thomas Diederich, Robert Hammond, Robert Sleek, Guy Watson, Thomas Jackson, Dick Rimmell, Jack Williams, Robert Grimes, Samm Easterday, Max Bock, Luther Dennison, Robert Howey. 5th Row—Carol Miser, Thelma Dennison, Donna Jean Rose, Delores Nodine, Carolyn Simpson, Gloria Mossberger, Irma Died¬ erich, Thelma Bartels, Iris Shipe, Betty Hofferman, Marlene Porter, Rosela Rimmell, June Stiles; Patricia Diederich, Violet Shipe, Donna Myers, Shirley Koepke, Sharlie Shull. 1st Row—Jancil Reasoner, Mary Louise Jones, Patricia Miser, Dolores Tague, Jacqueline Brunson, Georgia Zoll, Judith Reasoner, Dolly Esselburn, Kerin Feagler, Beverly Beebee, Karin Karr, Ellen Grimm, Nancy Sithen. 2nd Row—John Hicks, Alan LaRue, Darrell Thompson, Danny McPheeters, George Griswold, James Witherspoon, Maurice Getts, Lester Miller, Roger Weimer, William Fletcher, James Rahrig, Frederick Roberts, Raymond Andrews, David Travis, Jerry Brown, Eugene Farrington, Don Potter. 3rd Row—Glenn Helbert, Marvin Woodcock, Robert Rowe, Robert Hensinger, Harold Nott, William Wyatt, Lawrency Lantz, Gary Shafer, Roman Rowe, Thomas Treesh, Nixon Lawhead, Harold Howey, William Starner, Thomas Leech, Larry Barnes, Shirley Eastes, Kay Feagler, Virginia Stiles. 4th Row—Sandra Luttman, Barbara Busz, Connie Schumaker, Janice Mooney, Carolyn Brown, Mary Ann Cramer, Alvin Jones, Robert Haynes, James Carroll, Lynn McConnell, Sharon Cole, Nancy Jackson, Virginia Bartels, Roma Diederich, Aunita Schlot- terback, Sally Zimmerman, Shirley Oliver. 5th Row—Nell Manges, Beverly Schurr, Eleanor Newman, Virginia Souder, Wanda Baker, Susan Warfield, Janice Faulkner, Norma Butler, Lois Beebe, Martha Best, Evelyn Garen, Dorothy Carper, Kay Cramer, Sally DeWitt, Barbara Crow, Anita Grimes, Matilda Dennison, Barbara Curie, Janice Bleck, Inez Davis, Mary Lou Nodine, Sharilyn Haynes.

The " punks” in the " kid top” are the future stars of G. H. S. They are quickly learning the fundamental " ropes” and ways of circus life through the reading of books and the active participation in their different class room projects. Under the capable guidance of their " ring masters”, Mr. Ober, Miss Cobler, Miss V. Hall, Miss Dean, Miss A. Hall, Mr. Coble, Mrs. Bateman, Miss Ellert, Mrs. Iordan, and Miss Gilbert, they are assured the best luck " on the road.” 23 BILL BOARD The circus grounds were crowded and bright, As the people came in on the very first night. First in line was Mary Lou Schlosser, Followed by Schulthess, Lazenby, and Fisher. We were greeted by Worster, selling ducits for a yard . Who find that cake-cutting isn ' t very hard. Anna ' s juice joint stands inside the markee , Its location in front makes it easy to see. While waiting in line we see Anderson, the bug man , Selling his chameleons as fast as he can. Before us a tram act comes into view, Featuring Hill and Cook, a team that is new. Florence Travis gives Annie Oakleys to all she knows, And tells them to hurry to see the best of shows. Coming out of the keester is Brinkman, the gaffer . Followed by Lewis and Hays carrying some paper . Entering the big top we sighted in the blue , Hazeltine and Brandenburg sitting in their pew While next to them is seated Bond and Busz, Calmly enjoying popcorn and fuzz We spotted something looking just like a rabbit, But finally decided it was Lester Babbit, Along with lamison, Tuck, and Bowmar, Acclaimed for their clownability wide and afar. Turning our heads a little to the right, We see the windjammers coming in sight, At the head Marian Engle is still their leader, Followed by Jeanne Dills blowing tones even sweeter— 24 ADVERTISEMENT Than has ever been heard by us before, While Chub Van Fleit upholds the drum corps. Around the midway to the kidtops we go. In hopes that we won ' t miss any sideshow. We notice that Allman and Kelly at last, Are making Swamie Whirledge ' s Milt Joint fast, And Shanty Royer with his helper Fred Haffner, Is working hard amid all the laughter— Which from the fun house does loudly come, Where speeler Dick Smith is far from mum. Geek Seidel sitting by her big worm , Is really making that slimy thing squirm. So that Shipe, Waterbeck, and Panning, As thistle-chins think the show exciting. Ashenfelter the bag guy is selling his cherries , And helping direct everybody to Mary ' s . We follow the main stem to the tent, Where the animals are readied for the big event. Doris and June famed riders of rosin backs , Are followed by Bohls leading the bull , Max. Now come the cats with Ellis their trainer, Ahead of the convicts guided by Gerner. The gravediggers and old folks are next in line, Headed by Greenwalt, their tricks should be fine. Ringmaster Ross now appears on the scene, His features are sharp and his wit it is keen. So we ' ll leave you now and go right on in, The signal has sounded for the show to begin. 25 Top—left to right: These Senior girls ... Our honors. . . Shop boys ... We were little once ourselves . .

" Included in the memories of the past year are the initiation of new girls, the tea dances sponsored by the adult council, the fall weiner roast, the Mother-Daughter dinner, the G. R. Hi-Y party, and the Spring Ceremonial. Various methods were used for making money such as the Chicken Noodle Dinner, Sandwich sales, and the Chile Dinner. Under the direction of Miss Thrush, as advisor, and the following officers, Myrna Whirl- edge, president; Gloria Van Derbosch, vice-president; Mary Bair, secretary; Helen Hill, treasurer; Eulalee Busz, service chairman; Virginia Hall, social chairman; Mary Ruth Van Fleit, program chairman, the club experienced a happy and successful year. 28 Blue Triangle The Blue Triangle, the " little sister " organization of Girl Reserve, had a membership of 56 girls. In their program they prepared themselves for " Life Abundant " by developing leader¬ ship and ability to work with other people, by emphasizing ways and codes of life, and by presenting parties, teas, and other social enjoyments. Some high-lights of the social activi¬ ties were the initiation of freshman girls, the fall weiner bake, skating party, Valentine party, and Mother-Daughter Tea. The selling of Christmas cards again this year boosted them to the top rung of the ladder, financially.

This club not only stresses citizenship, and sportmanship, but emphasizes training in Christian fellowship. Initiating new members into the club was the first activity of the new year. In their ini¬ tiation, the new members learned the club slogan, " clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship, clean living " and the club purpose " to create, maintain, and extend through¬ out school and community high standards of Christian character. " The club sponsored two skating parties, took up collection for tuberculosis drive, and sold pencils with basketball schedules printed on them.

Other than just to teach the fundamentals of farming, this club stresses co-operation, citizenship, and other everyday essentials. The F. F. A. members appear in many places around school following their various projects. They may be in the shop repairing parts of broken machinery, or in the lunch room selling milk to students, or in Room One deeply engrossed in an agriculture book, or on some field trip. Then, too, there is the part of the club activities to which the members eagerly look forward which includes weiner roasts, skating parties, the Donkey Basketball game, and social parties. The F. F.

The High School Band, Girls ' Glee Club, and Boys ' Glee Club, under the capable direction ol Miss Stemen, formed the " musical ring " in Garrett High School. The band with thirty-seven members added zest and spirit to the performances under the " Big Top " . Taking part in the 4-H Achievement Program, the DeKalb County Fair, and many other civic events, the " circus band " became well known. Star performers in the band were: drum major, Marian Engle; twirlers, Helen Hill, Mary Bair, and Pat Owens.

" Leaders of the club were: Myrna Whirledge, president; Helen Hill, vice-president; Mary Ruth Van Fleit, secretary-treasurer; Margaret Smith, librarian. An entertaining part of the circus ring was the Eight Man Act which had a unique way of presenting songs.

Headmen in the act were: Harold Ross, president; Richard Smith, vice- president; Loren Ashenfelter, treasurer; and Miss Stemen, director. 32 Glee Clubs 1st Row—Martha Bloom, Delores Boester, Marcine Ashenfelter, Marjorie Newman, Margaret Fee, Florins Bush, Evelyn Smith, Ann Greenwalt, Marjorie McIntosh, Helen Ransom, Marilyn Brown, Rosemary Smith, Marjorie Fenstermaker, Miss Stemen. 2nd Row—Anna Woodcox, Pearl Gerner, Myrna Whirledge, Mary Ruth Van Fleit, Mary Sue Laign, Jane Owens, Phyllis Beck, Joan Helbert, Joyce Barnes, Marian Engle, Helen Hill, Fannie Mae Rowe, Bertha Peterson. 3rd Row—Mary Bair, Leah Malcolm, Glenna Mae Snyder, Catherine Kern, JoAnn Sell, Diane Hopkins, Mar¬ tha Fletcher, Marilyn Heinlin, Elnora Smith, Jean Dills, Deloris Luttman, Jeannette Fenstermaker, Margaret Mankowski, Patricia Van Lear, Barbara Krider. 4th Row—Sarah McCarter, Margaret Smith, Margaret Weideman, Louise Covelli, Eulalee Busz, Phyllis Castle, Shirley Grimm, Colleen Miller, Virginia Hall, Esther Stevens, Dorothy Martin, Beverly Haffner, Gloria Van Derbosch, Doris Burtch. 1st Row—Miss Stemen, Loren Ashenfelter, Harold Ross, Richard Smith, Normand Higgins. 2nd Row—Philmer Anderson, Edward Howard, Richard Ober. 33 Scouts 1st Row—Robert Stiles, Maynard Clark, Ronald Williams, Douglas Shull, Royce Higgins, Gareth Reese, Donald Gentry, Mr. Woodcox. 2nd Row—Howard Hicks, Billy Hofferman, William Mavity, Lloyd Myers, James Garrison, Douglas Zimmer¬ man, Blaine Peters. 3rd Row—James Moses, Martin Woodcox, John Walter, Edwin Mortorfl, Richard Hollis, William Ervin, William Johnston, Robert Schurr. In the parade of organizations of Garrett High School, the Scout Club is one definitely recognized for its creative activities. Its members are known not only as trailblazers and fire-builders, but also as leaders in community projects and as an outstanding representative body of young men in our school. Shop activities such as woodwork, leathercraft, and metalwork are not only school projects, but im¬ portant factors in earning merit badges. Pioneering is another activity in Scout work. In this work the Scouts make model signal towers, bridges, huts, and rafts all fastened together by lashings. The Scout Club and activities were under the guidance of Mr. Woodcox, with Edwin Mortorff, junior assistant-scout master; William Ervin, senior patrol leader; Martin Woodcox, scribe and treasurer of the club. Librarians Handy men on the grounds were these librarians. Always ready and willing to help, these students under the supervision of Mrs. Sweeney did a fine ' ' act.

Dunkin the first semester, and Miss Biggerstaff the second, these stu¬ dents met each Thursday the eighth period to read aid discuss various chapters of the Bible. Students who were members of this club for two years earned an extra credit in elective English if they passed a creditable examination over the course which the Bible Club presented. Officers of the club were: Ruth Diehl, president; Vera Howey, vice-president; Lois Davidson, secretary- treasurer. Quill and Scroll The Quill and Scroll Club in the hands of their trainer, Miss Evard, and her assistants, president, Betty Brinkman; vice president, Anna Woodcox; secretary-treasurer, Pearl Gerner, did its bit to make the parade under the " Big Top ' a success. The ciub consisted of members of the Journalism classes of 1945 and 1946 who were interested in journalistic work of various types. Meeting each Monday the eighth period, the members wrote several articles for the high school paper, the " Panorama. " Although the club maintained a fairly inactive status this past year, it sponsored several very inter¬ esting and entertaining assembly programs throughout the year. 1st Row—Mary Louise Strock, Betty Brinkman, Anna Woodcox. 2nd Row—Thais Seidel, Martha Fletcher, Mary Ruth Van Fleit, Pearl Gerner. 3rd Row—Louise Covelli, Doris Yarde, Harold Ross, Le.nore Lewis, Miss Evard. 35 Girls’ Athletic Club 1st Row—Martha Bloom, Marjorie Zoll, Marjorie McIntosh, Helen Ransom, Reba Ellis, loyce Barnes, Helen Hill, Marjorie Fenstermaker, Miss Johns. 2nd Row—-Pearl Gerner, Marian Engle, Betty Brinkman, Jeannette Fenstermaker, Marilyn Greenwalt, Mary Sue Laign, Diane Hopkins Jane Owens, Mary Ruth Van Fleit, Mary Lou Smith, Margaret Smith, Mar¬ garet Weideman. 3rd Row—Lucille Bond, Elnora Smith, Myrna Whirledge, Phyllis Castle, Thais Seidel, Virginia Hall, Jean Dills, Mary Lou Schlosser, Eulalee Busz, Marilyn Heinlin, Louis Covelli. 4th Row—Mary Hazeltine, Martha Schulthess, Winifred Lewis, Carolyn Lewis, Colleen Miller, Waunieta Walt, Dorothy Martin, Lenore Lewis, Gloria Van Derbosch, Patricia Van Lear, Margaret Mankowski.

The girls were organized into six different teams with the following captains: Jeanne Dills, Pat Van Lear, Mary Ruth Van Fleit, Lenore Lewis, Pearl Gerner, and Gloria Van Derbosch. Before their basketball season started, the girls played volleyball and baseball. The Senior volleyball team was exceptionally good. Playing games every Monday night, the girls ended their season with an elimination tournament. For a grand finale, the losing team entertained the rest of the club with a party. Senior girls received chevrons for each year that they were members of this club, and those with a four-year record received honor pins. Officers of G. A. C. were: Mary Lou Schlosser, president; Helen Hill, vice-president; and Marian Engle, secretary-treasurer. 36 Aeolian Staff Compiling a year book at any time is no small task and due to unfavorable weather con¬ ditions and too much goo , the staff of the 1946 Aeolian had to give them Brown ' s cow in order to complete their job. Credit and appreciation is duly paid to Mr. Flora, the business manager, for his effici¬ ency and ever-ready tack hammer , to Miss Thrush, the literary advisor, for her untiring patience and quick response to our Hey, Rube , and to Miss Gump, managing the typing department, for her efforts in getting things done. The performance of each was largely re¬ sponsible ior keeping the show rolling. It is with a great deal of pleasure that the staff presents to the performers and specta¬ tors under the G. H. S.

The " Big Top ' s 1946 Football season was of a mediocre billing, producing three wins, five losses, and one tie. Coach Parks combined the two returning " top performers " with his " amateurs ' ' , giving the team experience for future years. Due t o several accidents at the beginning of the season, some of the boys were unable to play until the last few games. The Garrett Railroaders were hard fighters making their opponents work in every game. The boys were well known for their ability to keep going regardless of the odds. With only a few seniors leaving the line-up, next year ' s team should prove even more victorious.

Cotton, the spirit and pep of the team, managed several spectacular runs this year. Pre¬ venting more than one touchdown, he proved his defensive ability. 2 Haroldean Kelley—Sr., end, two-year letterman. Pinky was very adept at dumping opposing blockers and at slic¬ ing through to upset the runner. 3 Bill Worster—Sr., halfback, one-year letterman. Willie was a good ball hand¬ ler and his speciality was throwing a running pass. 4 Allen Bohls—Sr., tackle, one-year let¬ terman. Bobo, the largest man on the squad, gave our team psychological ad¬ vantage and was a hard hitter. 5 Julian Allman—Sr., tackle, one-year let¬ terman. Duan accomplished two of his main ambitions—a football letter and a good linesman. 6 Lester Babbitt—Sr., halfback, one-year letterman. Les was the " fast " man on the team. Wide end runs were his spe¬ ciality. 7 Lorin Cook—Sr., center, one-year letter- man. Playing football for his first time this year, Lorin was a hard tackier and a good linesman. 8 Richard Smith—Sr., end, one-year let¬ terman. Due to a bad ankle, Dick ' s sea¬ son was short but hard fought. 9 Gerald Johnson—Jr., halfback, one-year letterman. Fast-stepping Jerry had a fine throwing arm which he used to the team ' s advantage. 10 Earl Clark—Jr., end, one-year letterman. Because of his uncanny ability to snag passes, Earl was one of the great offen¬ sive threats on the team. 11 Edward Howard—Jr., halfback, one- year letterman. Whitie was a fast and shifty back who could carry the " pack " through the line or around the end. 12 Donald Cleland—Jr., fullback, one-year letterman. Don, the power of the team, specialized in making his own holes if there wasn ' t one there. 13 Richard Sarber—Jr., center, one-year letterman . Ric was a big factor in mak¬ ing holes for his own team and putting up a stonewall when on defense. 14 Stanley Bonnett—Jr. guard, one-year letterman. Stan was a small but mighty man with plenty of power behind him. 15 George Pearson—Soph., guard, one- year letterman. Georgie teamed up to bring down any line plunge or off tackle runs. 16 Howard Simpson—Soph., tackle, one- year letterman. Simp loved a good game. Much is to be expected of him in the next two years. Others who earned varsity letters were: Allen Souder, Norval Withrow, Ned Schlosser, William Dawson, Edwin Mor- torff, Henry Zecca, Carl Wetoskey, and Gene Custer. 43 Basketball 1st Row—Ned Schlosser, Howard Simpson, Gerald Johnson, Haroldean Kelley, Donald Cleland, Earl Clark, Bill Worster. 2nd Row—Coach Parks, George Pearson, Richard Sarber, Robert Treesh, Allen Souder, William Dawson, Mr. Bateman. Beginning the basketball season with only two returning lettermen, the Railroaders were up against great odds. After eight straight losses, these boys showed their pep by defeating Avilla and later going to the final game in the county tournament. After con¬ quering Salem Center in the sectional tournament, the Railroaders were forced to bow out to Auburn for the second time during the year. Although the season was not a victorious one, the team displayed fine sportsmanship and put up a good ' ' clem ' ' in all their games.

Around the cinder path this spring was seen the " Big Top’s " 1946 track team, deligently practicing and training. Material from last year was lacking in quantity and the team had to be built from scratch. Despite the spirit and cooperation shown, this year ' s team lacked experience but put up a good showing in each meet. The overwhelming response to the first call to practice gave Coach Parks high hopes. Assisting Mr. Parks by handling the field events, high jumping, broad jumping, pole vaulting, and shot putting, was Mr. Lewis. The increase of interest in track events produced a better track team this year, and should give the " Big Top " an even more promising group of cindermen next year. Schedule April 2 ...

The six " Barkers " , Marjorie Fenstermaker, Martha Fletcher, Jeanne Dills, Pat Van Lear, Joyce Barnes, and Marilyn Heinlin, have succeeded in their task of keeping up the school spirit and eagerness of the students through the football and basketball seasons. Starting out as an entirely new group with only one veteran, Pat Van Lear, they have organized themselves fully and have held pep sessions before many games. Although this has been a slack season in basketball and football, the " Barkers " deserve much recognition and many compliments for their splendid work. 48 Top—-left to right: It must be cold outside These silly seniors . .

Featuring Juniors and Seniors alike, this show played an important part in helping along the Junior finances. Lending their voices in the choruses, the Girl ' s Glee Club added spirit and zest to this comedy. Starring Mary, Harold, Jerry, Phyllis, Gloria, and Dick (top picture) the play also included a quaint old- fashioned dance with Marjory, Benny, Caroline, David, Pat, and Gene (second picture). The Juniors deserve all the credit they received for producing such a fine, successful musical comedy. P9 Top—left to right: The grade school . . .

RUBE! HIGH SCHOOL First year—Emerald. Second year—Soapstone. Third year—Grindstone. Fourth year—Tombstone. The high school paper is a great invention. The school gets all the fame, The printer gets all the money, And the staff gets all the blame. " What ' s the matter with your pen, Dick? " " It writes like a paint brush. ' ' Freshie at the end of first semester, " Teacher, may we take our algebras home, now? " Mr. Flora, " Electricity doesn ' t kill you, it ' s your heart that stops beating. " Mr. Rose, " What is " N " cents?” Loren A., " What you put in your house to make it smell good. " Mrs. Meir, " What term is connected with assault? " M. Greenwalt, " Pepper. " Teacher, " You eating something, Haroldean? " H. Kelley, " No, teacher, I am soaking a prune to eat at the noon hour. " When asked why he was taking public speaking Julian Allman replied, " So that I will always have something to say. " (AS IF HE DIDN ' T ALWAYS.) The best excuse for being absent from school was given by M. Engle. She said, " I was fixing my dad ' s income tax.” Miss B., " Give me a sentence with an ob¬ ject. " R. Smith, " Teacher, you are beautiful. " Miss B., “And just what is the object there? " R. Smith, " A good grade. " Early to bed and early to rise, Keeps the red out of the whites of your eyes. Flattery is 90% soap, and soap is 90% lye. Laugh and the world laughs with you. Laugh and you laugh alone. The first joke was your teacher ' s The second was your own. " Lester, have you got enough suckers to go around? " asked Mrs. Meier. " No, but you can take turns on this one. Miss Stemen, " This experiment should be done under a hood. " F. Jamison, " Put on Your Old Gray Bonnet. " If onions fry, will Loren Cook? If sewing machines hum, will Grayson Tuck? If mosquitoes sing, will Eulalee Busz? Jeanne, " Did you ever read " Lion in the Street? " Chub, " No, I read sitting up in bed. " Dawn and Cotton at a ball game: Cotton, " I think Bill Worster will be our best man. " Dawn, " Oh, Cotton, this is so sudden. " Mr. Lewis, " Of course, I know that those slips of paper that most of you have in your books are merely book marks, but I would much prefer you wouldn ' t use them. 58 Index of Circus Terms Annie Oakley .
