' ' —Whittier 2 In Remembrance " There is no Death! what seems so is transition; This life of moral breath Is but a suburb of the life elysian Whose portal we call Death. " Longfellow. In memory of Dr. John W. Thomson, a great benefactor to humanity through the services of his medical profession, as well as an efficient and in¬ tellectual promoter of the welfare of the Garrett Public Schools and of our whole community, we Seniors affectionately pay tribute to him for his gener¬ ous contributions of time, energy, and thought. 3 F oreword We, the senior class of 1947, in publishing this book, wish to present to our fellow students, and to the inter¬ ested people of the community, pic¬ tures and accounts of happenings which we experienced on the foot- trails of the Garrett High Reservation. It is our hope that the Aeolian will help the seniors to retain the cherished memories of the triumphs and defeats which have enriched character, and that it will help other readers to have a better understanding of life on the Reservation. 4 Dedication To W. S. Painter, who has been our guide, counselor, and friend through our high school trek, we, the seniors of Garrett High School, respectfully and gratefully dedicate our 1947 Aeolian. The class of ' 47 is the last class to have the privilege of being under his supervision, for with the termination of this school year, Mr. Painter is retiring after having gloriously and ardently worked and served with untiring vigi¬ lance the Garrett High School for twenty-one years. We hope that in the future he may enjoy many years of pleasure and contentment, and that he may attain the many blessings which he so rightly deserves. 5 Chiefs MR.

Long had we looked forward to the time when we should have completed this arduous migration, and should have won the glorious title, warrior. In the beginning, that time seemed so very far away, but tern pus fugit. Now that we are about to conclude this journey, we are prone to review and to m_eas- ure our spoils with a feeling of mingled joy and sorrow; joy because of the any conquests which have been ours, and sorrow because we must leave the happy familiar associations and move on to nev hunting grounds. How eagerly, yet, how trepidatly we entered our first year of high school. With the keen eye of the Owl, the cautious step of the runner, the super strength of the Eagle, and the courage of the Braves, we have continuously been participants of the many new adven¬ tures which the reservation has afforded. All along the trek have been new class room sub¬ jects to conquer; new conquests with which to battle; new tribesmen with whom to play and to work, and from whom to choose special friends. Many were the spec ' .acular and high light experiences all through the moons; but especially do we like to reflect upon the time during which we were full-fledged Braves. It hardly seemed possible that we had come so far so quickly. What fun planning for the big ceremonial dance, the Junior-Senior banquet. Preparing for it took time, work, and ef¬ fort. But we felt amply repaid, however, when we stepped into the soft glow of the candle lighted gym and heard the strains of the inviting dance music from Richard Pepple ' s or¬ chestra; and saw the beautiful hand-made roterpieces, the girls in their brightly-colored for- fence, the tables with their lovely flower centerpieces, the girl in their brightly colored for- mals gracefully dancing with the festive attired Braves and Warriors. Too, this was a year of great moment at the reservation for the athletes. Some of them were on the first team and won those flashy maroon sweaters; several won letters, the symbols of hard- fought battles. Then the class-rings came, shiny, gold glass-rings with our initials on the inside. They, too, were symbols of accomplishments; we had worked moons to accummulate enough victories to merit the privilege of wearing these rings. At last came the final camp¬ fire, the Junior-Senior picnic. At that we played baseball, took hikes, swam, talked, and ate. How we did eat! Yes, those wonderful times are to be remembered always. Looking back over our high school life, it is now that we can really see how much fun has been ours. Growing in fellowship with our classmates, learning to be good sports, and remembering that our boys were out there doing their best whether they won or lost a game. Yes, we regret to leave the G. H. S. Reservation. Our Senior year is especially one to be long remembered. Conquering new class room subjects, getting our black and white class sweaters; choosing class colors, flower, and motto; working on the Aeolian; getting measured for caps and gowns; producing the class play; looking forward to another won¬ derful banquet; reading the school paper; these are the things that will linger in our memo¬ ries forever. To the teachers who have so generously guided, encouraged, and maybe at times, forced some of us to victory, we extend our most sincere thanks and appreciation. So it is now, that we say goodbye to you, the Reservation, the chiefs, the tribal chiefs, and to the many tribesmen. May your days of walking the foot-trails and attempts at conquering the variable forces of the G. H. S. Reservation be as happy and profitable as ours have been. 12 Warriors MARY BAIR— " Bair " Commercial Blue Triangle 1, 2; Y- Teen 3, 4; Sec. 3; Song Leader 4; Quill Scroll 4; Girls ' Glee Club 1, 2, 3; Seniors ' Girls ' Chorus 4; Band 2, 3; Aeolian Humor Editor.

This much-looked-forward-to name was finally attained by an ambitious and courageous tribe of redskins, as they re-entered the G. H. S. Reservation last fall, ready to don their war paint and war bonnets, and ready to learn the manly art of battle. As " braves " their new responsibilities were many. Two new important activities in the lives of these braves Avero the choosing of their class rings, and the putting on of the ceremonial, the Junior-Senior banquet. To put on the banquet they must have " wampum " and plenty of it. Thus, during the football and basketball seasons they set up consession stands at the games, selling hot dogs, pop, ice cream, potato chips, etc. Each day at the noon hour they sold candy. Maroon and Blue beanies, with the name Railroaders and the well-known symbol on them, were also sold by the Juniors. After the basketball and football games the victors and losers enjoyed the peace dances which the " braves " sponsored. Under the guidance of their chiefs, Mrs. S .veeney. Miss Johns, and Mr. Bateman, and with the cooperation of every brave the final ceremonial v as a joyous and spectacular event. The warriors and tribal chieftains enjoyed the gay decorations and fine entertain¬ ment, and graciously joined the braves in an evening of peace, harmony, and gaiety. Leaders of this tribe were David Grimm, president; Ned Schlosser, vice-president; Joyce Barnes, secretary-treasurer; and Gerald Carper, business manager. The success in carry¬ ing on the activities of the class was due to their cautious preparations and diligent ef¬ forts. Through the past school year these " braves " have had many experiences, and have learned to handle their weapons well. We seniors feel that they have proven their ability and are now ready to walk down the last winding trail of the reservation as " warriors. " 19 Eagles First row; Warren Hall, Tom DeA Vitt, Freddie Gingrich, Martin Woodcox. Second row: Ronald Williams, Charles Waterbeck, Jack Thrush, John Virden, Richard Hurd, William Mavity, James Moses, Billy Putt, Blaine Peters, Robert Panning. Third row: Martha Bloom, Marilyn Brown, Florine Bush, Ann Greenwalt, Doris Silbert, Mari¬ lyn Connor, Jeanette Fenstermaker, Dorothy Day, Irma Haffner, Susanne Nicholas, Donna Shirk, Beverly Shutt, Joan Gilbert, Annabelle Warstler, Mary Maggert. Fourth row; Marcine Ashenfelter, Delores Boester, Eula Mae Freeman, Shirley Baker, Sarah McCarter, Elnora Smith, Sue Stephenson, Janet Engle, Fannie Mae Rowe, Carolyn Stroh, Wilma Godwin, Margaret Fee, Alvina Malargic. Fifth row: Joan Bleck, Bertha Peterson, Arnold Dose, Robert Donley, Kess Crager, Kenneth Sliger, Dale Yorde, Donald Steward, Donald Jordan, Bobby Rottger, James Shramm, Esther Davidson, Joan Helbert. Sixth row; Joe Meyers, Dwayne Harris, Richard Kruger, Meredith Poer, John Walter, Melvin Diederich, Frank Sarpa, James Travis, Norman Runion, Basil Rowe. After a year of experience in the Senior High Wigwam these eagles were well aware of what was expected of them, and they were going to do their best to live up to these expectations. As the year commenced, this tribe soon got into the spirit of things with Mrs. Schlecht, Mr. Rose, and Mr. Harmon as their tribal chiefs. It was decided that each member of the tribe should pay fifty cents to be used for refresh¬ ments at the various activities during the year. Interest in school events was shown as they attended the war dances after the games, were always well represented at the pep sessions, patronized the junior concession stand, and participiated actively in other activities of the reservation. Roller skating parties were special features of the eagle class, and " happy hunting grounds” were to be found by all those who attended them. To lead other eagles around the foot-trails, William Putt was chosen as president; Shirley Baker, vice-president; Joan Helbert, treasurer, and Basil Rowe, secretary. 20 Runners What a great thrill these Runners had as they first set their moccasin-clad feet on the Garrett High campground. They had looked forward to this experience for many moons; and now that the time had really arrived, they were ready to grasp with all their might the tasks which lay ahead. To distinguish the different beats of the tom-toms, to learn where all the tepees were, to ferret out the complicated combinations of the lockers, and above all, to be ready to participate in the many activities of the camp were a few of the tasks. Too, they were old enough to attend the fellowship ceremonial dances which were held after the games. No group can accomplish much without leaders, so under the capable direction of the experienced tribal chiefs. Miss Evard, Mr. Sherman, and Mr. Woodcox, the following principal runners were elected; Jacqueline Roberts, president; Janet Limpert, vice-president; Robert Dawson, secretary-treasurer. To best prepare themselves for an understanding of their opportunities and obligations, and to enable them to participate in the affairs of the reservation, many ways and means pow-wows and ceremonials were held. Now that these people have become accomplished runners they are looking forward to a bigger and better year as Eagles.

Upon re-entering the Reservation these young and ambitious tribesmen advanced one degree and were to be known as “owls " . Under the wise guid¬ ance of Mrs. Fouch and Mr. Rahmer, these owls have kept their eyes open and their minds ever alert to what v as going on about them, for they must prepare themselves for the ceremonials vrhich -will admit them into the Senior High Wigwam. Part of the guidance periods every Tuesday was spent in discussing the subject of citizenship. Outstanding citizens of Garrett were studied during that time. This helped them become acquainted with citizens of their com¬ munity, and at the same time gave them materials and patterns from which to copy and to help plan their future. " Like father, like son, " and so the saying goes in the tepee of the owls. With only four years to go their time is short in which to learn the ways and means of society. However, it must be learned if they expect to take part in it, and through their curricular and various social activities it shall be learned, and they shall eagerly look forward to the future. What will come no one knows, and only the passing of many moons will tell. But whatever it is, these " redskins " will be prepared to face it. 22 Scouts Under the watchful eyes of their chiefs. Miss Krutza and Mr. Coble, the seventh grade " scouts” go forward to the G. H. S. Reservation. From their small tepees to the tribal chief ' s tent they come, eager to take up the tasks of heap good " scouts. " The future holds much for these hardy youngsters. At this reservation they are given a chance to delve into many adventures, to learn the various intri¬ cacies of nature and human nature, and to cope with problems and situa¬ tions of our complex society. By their diligent efforts as loyal, courageous ccouts, they may win many decorative medals which will symbolize their achievements and character growth. With five more years of meticulous trail-blazing these scouts will leave their imprint in the sandy ground of the reservation. On their shoulders rests the responsibility of blazing a good trail on which the scouts to come will be able to follow. Heap many pow-wows to come are in store for the scouts, on this.

To assure them of health, wealth, and v isdom, their especially trained chieftains continuously guide, encourage, and keep :hem on the ad¬ venturous trails. To help fortify these young citizens for the day ' s events, and to develop heap big warriors and squavrs for the reservation, each morning gl rest period they enjoy a half-pint of milk and some crackers. Activities are ai no end for the young ' uns. Besides receiving instructions in readin ' , ritin ' , and ' rithmetic they enjoy educational radio programs, picture programs produced from their own film-strip visual aid machine, and an opportunity to participate in their own stage productions. The little theatre room in the basement of their school affords them great fun and many opportunities to develop their talents in lead¬ ership, citizenship, and good sportsmanship. During National Education Week, a tea was held for the parents of the papooses, bringing the parents, children, and the school into closer relation¬ ship and understanding. The annual spring concert was also an event in which these young citi¬ zens displayed publicly their efforts and talents. In future moons from this wigwam will come the big chiefs, the warriors, and the squaws of the Garrett High Reservation. Their accomplishment belts will be full of the scalps of good doings.

Y-Teen, formerly known as Girl Reserve, is a national organization affiliated with the Young Women ' s Christian Association. The changing of the name Girl Reserve to Y-Teen was a national movement undertaken during the past summer. Y stands for the Y. W. C. A., and the " teen " signifies that it is for teenagers, both boys and girls. Although the name has changed, the purpose " to find and give the best " , remains the same. An eventful year was anticipated when intitation of new " squaws " into the tribe took place. Among the outstanding activities of the year was the " Mistletoe Frolic " , a formal Christmas dance. A king, queen, and their court were elected by popular vote to preside over the ceremonial. Earl Clark was chosen as king and Marjory McIntosh as queen. At¬ tendants in the court were Joyce Barnes, Norval Withrow, Joan Helbert, Tom DeWitt, Marilyn Haffner, and Bobby Dawson. As the evening progressed a crowning ceremonial was held, during which the king, queen, and their court were presented with appropriate gifts. Refreshments were later served by the Adult Council. The gym was beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree, mistletoe, holly, and balloons. What fun it was to dance amid the swirling snow. And the mistletoe! Ah—the mistletoe! How exciting it was to dis¬ cover unsuspecting victims tarrying under the mistletoe. We wonder if Mr. Painter and Mr. Flora were really so unsuspecting. Other activities of the club were sandwich sales, chicken-noodle supper, tea dances, Mother-Daughter dinner, and installation services for the new chiefs for the 1947-1948 school year. Last summer Mary Lou Smith and Gloria VanDerbosch were se.nt to Camp Mack for the summer conference of the Northern Indiana Girl Reserves. While there they obtained many new ideas to help them in guiding the activities of Y-Teen. In October a pow-wow, the district meeting, was held at Pokagon State Park, with the Angola club acting as host. Marilyn Heinlen, Jayne Owens, Miss Thrush, and Miss Cobler represented the Y-Teen club at this pow-wow. Four committees, composed of ten girls each, were appointed to prepare interesting and entertaining programs for the weekly meetings. Some special features of these were talks and dmonstrations given by representatives of Warner Beauty College of Fort Wayne; sports talks by Mr. Parks and Mr. Harman; a talk o.n mother-daughter relations by Mrs. Pittinger; a talk about health by Dr. Bonnett Souder; and a Valentine party by the Cabinet. Through the efforts and excellent leadership of the Y-Teen chieftainess, Miss Marie Thrush, and the following officers: Mary Lou Smith, president; Jayne Owens, vice-president; Marilyn Heinlen, secretary; Carolyn Lewis, treasurer; Gloria VanDerbosch, program chair¬ man; Mary Bair, social chairman; and Margaret Smith, devotion chairman, the Y-Teen had a successful and delightful year. 30 Hi-Y To carry out the activities of the reservation there must be ambitious groups to lead and direct. Among the leading organizations of the high school is the Hi-Y, which is com¬ posed of warriors, braves, and eagles. Each member has sought to maintain the club purpose, " to create, maintain, and ex¬ tend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian characters " , and the slogan, " clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship, and clean living. " Among the activities in which the Hi-Y boys have participated were skating and to- baggoning parties, school and community drives, such as drives for used-clothing, tubercu¬ losis, and " March of Dimes”. To build up their treasury the boys sold pencils with the Garrett High basketball schedule printed on them. Short speeches were given each day throughout Fire Prevention Week, and each week during the Lenten period. In all these activities the members have helped to further the purpose and slogan of their club. On March 5, the District III Hi-Y meeting was held in Garrett, with Mr. Rose and Richard Drews acting as sponsor and president, respectively, of the meeting. Representa¬ tives from other schools participated in the opening ceremonies and in the discussions on the general topic. Democracy. This part of the day ' s program took place at the Methodist Church. Later the conference group went to the Presbyterian Church for dinner and for afternoon activities. Under the able leadership of Richard Drews, president ;Richard Ober, vice-presiden.!, Normand Higgins, secretary; Joe DeVeny, treasurer; and Hi-Y chief, O. B. Rose, lii-Y had a prosperous year, holding weekly meetings which were both interesting and entertaining as well as educational.

Blue Triangle, a club for freshman, and sophomore girls, is similar to Y- Teen and it carries the same purpose " to find and give the best. " As mem¬ bers of this tribe they learn to shoulder responsibility, by acting as chair¬ man or serving on committees for the weekly programs. This aids in develop¬ ing leadership, and establishes among the girls a cooperative attitude. When they advance to braves and warriors they will find that these abilities or characteristics are two very important factors. During the course of the year these squaws have engaged in many social activities such as skating parties, a Valentine party, and a Mother-Daughter tea. This tea was the most promient event of all, for at this time they were able to present to their mothers a program made from their own talent and in¬ genuity. Sending clothing to a Polish family of nine was a special project under¬ taken this year. The clothing was sent directly to the family. In order to build up their treasury they sold Christmas cards and wrap¬ pings. This is an annual wampum-making scheme, and has once again proven to be successful. Tribal leaders were Miss Johns and Mrs. Schlecht, sponsors; Bertha Peter¬ son, president; Marcine Ashenfelter, vice-president; Sarah MdCarter, secretary; and Elnora Smith, treasurer. 32 Bible Club Among the many active clubs of the Reservation, the Bible Club has played an im¬ portant role. The purpose of the club is to study and to learn more about the Bible and to help teach others. Participation in this club gives an opport unity for group discussion about what various verses in the Bible mean; affords a chance to exchange ideas about Biblical questions; and helps to establish beliefs, patterns, and principles of living, all of which are so vital in the building of a well-rounded character and personality, and make life so much more abundant. The study program began with the interpretatiton of the shortest book of the Bible, 111 John, and continued with the interpretation of the other books in order of their length. Emphasis was placed upon the techniques of expression of the different authors of the Bible, upon the purposes and occasions for writing, upon the codes of living, and the per¬ sonalities, as well as when the social and civic laws, customs, and mannerisms that are pictured. A three-dimensional map, which the club purchased, helped greatly in the study of Palestine. The group enjoyed a few parties during the year, the last of which was a May-day picnic. The Bible Club, which added much to the general status of our school, met the eighth period every Thursday, under the leadership of Ruth Deihl, president; Lois Davidson, vice- president; Beverly Barnhart, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Sherman, the club advisor, a person of great appreciation and deep understanding of the Bible was an inspirational influence to the club. We regret that he was ill and could not be with us the entire year. Mrs. Walton, however, very ably helped us to carry on our study and to make the work of the club profitable and enjoyable.

The moundbuilders, chief trailblazers, and firebuilders of Garrett High School ' s reser¬ vation are the Boy Scouts. The purpose to " be prepared " is fully carried out by these " in- juns " as they take part in activities of the school and community. Scout work helps train and prepare these boys for future life. Known for their creative work and good deeds, these " injuns " have received many high honors and awards. During the year they held three courts of Honor, at which time those " heap good Scouts " who deserved advancement or merit badges received their awards. Many activities were entered into this year such as the Fall County Roundup, of which Garrett ' s troop was the only one qualified for achievement; periodic paper drives; ice-skating and Hallowe ' en parties; and observalion of Boy Scout Week. During Boy Scout Week it is an annual event to elect scouts to city offices and let them take over the city for a day, running the affairs of the city in the manner they think they should be done. This year a sizeable sum of " wampum " was taken in for fines, and was donated to the March of Dimes. When Garrett was faced with destruction, caused by sleet and ice, the Scouts did a commendable job in helping to clear the streets and walks of falling debris. Through these activities they have proven themselves ready and capable to some day being active leaders on the reservation, and in the community. The Scout Club and activities ore under the eagle-eye of Mr. Woodcox, with Lloyd Myers as active assistant scout master, Martin Woodcox, patrol leader, and William Loomis as scribe. Group Patrol Leaders are Warren Hall, George Mayfield, William Loomis, Wil¬ liam Stevens, and Joe Dietrick. 34 Boys Chorus Music, the product of inspiration and sometimes called the fourth need of man, is one of the finer arts, and is given a definite part in or Reservation With its elements of rhythm, harmony, and melody it tends to lift our minds above the more ordinary things and helps to make our days more nearly perfect. Included in the Music Department are the Band, Baton Twirlers, Boys ' Chorus, Girls ' Glee Club, and Senior Girls ' Chorus. Members of these organi¬ zations strive for advancement, and in so doing take heed to the old adage " practice makes perfect. " The members of the Boys ' Chorus, under the animated guidance of Mr. Coble, who so efficiently blended the numerous discords into concords have won a greater love and appreciation for music. Through their weekly practices and sings, the boys came to realize more the inward peace and joy that music holds in store. The officers of the club are: Edward Howard, secretary-treas¬ urer; and Normand Higgins, librarian. Leader; Mr. Coble.

Other exhibitions of this group ' s accomplishments were displayed at the annual Halloween cele¬ bration, the Spring Concert, and Commencement. In the early part of the year the band members were privileged to hear the Marine Corps ' Band at Fort Wayne. If during the year a member of the band earned fifteen hundred points he was awarded a music-lyre emblem. Points were earned by practicing, serving as president or librarian, playing in ensembles, concerts, and at home ball-games, solos, having a B grade average, and having no de-merits. This group has been under the inspirational direction of Mrs. Soudah and the leadership of Marjorie Fenstermaker, president; Jayne Cwens, vice-president; Mary Lou Smith, secretary-treasurer; and Robert Foulk, librarian. Working with the band are the majorette, Sue Stephenson; and the twirlers Patricia Cwens, and Jacqueline Roberts. Their twirling routines, dis¬ play at parades and basketball games, were delightful and highly com¬ mendable. This year the Girls ' Glee Club, comprised of first and second sopranos, and altos, has exhibited talents while appearing in the Spring Concert, Com¬ mencement, and Baccalaureate services. At Christmas the members enjoyed a festive pot-luck dinner party. Serving as officers of the club were Margaret Wiedemen, president; Jayne Cwens, vice-president; Marcine Ashenfelter, sec¬ retary-treasurer; Elnora Smith, librarian; and Mrs. Soudah, director. Through the generosity of the Tri Kappa Sorority and through the soror¬ ity ' s desire to promulgate cultural inspirations and interests, many students from the Music Department have had the privilege of hearing accomplished artists who appeared in the Fort Wayne Civic Symphony.

A new addition was made to the Music Department this year with the organizing of the Senior Girls ' Chorus. Because these senior girls had had at least three years experi¬ ence in cho rus training, and because the high-school chorus group was so large, it was desirable to make the division. The first public appearance of these worrioresses was made at the Presbyterian Church, where they sang for the twenty-fifth anniversary celebration of the Delphians. At Thanksgiving a program was given for the school in which they sang " Glorious Forever, " and " Prayer Perfect. " Several weeks later they sang these same numbers at the Methodist Church. One of their most striking performances was given at the annual Christmas pro¬ gram presented for the school. A cantata, entitled " Yuletide Memories " , which included the Hallelujah chorus from Handels ' famous " Messiah " , was beautifully sung by the girls. They spent a great deal of time in preparing for this program and they were generously rewarded with praise for their fine work. Christmas caroling, singing at the Spring Concert and Baccalaureat services were other activties of the Senior Girls ' Chorus. Included in their social activities was a long-to-be remember picnic. Directing the playing for the chorus are two large factors which helped the girls to perfect their singing. Under the competent direction of Mrs. Soudah, and the skillfullness of the pianist, Ruth Deihl, the chorus progressed. And last, but not least, are the officers, Beverly Haffner, president; Phyllis Castle, vice-president; Gloria Van Derbosch, secretary- treasurer; and Virginia Hall, librarian, who deserve honorable mention for their shore in making the work of this club possible, enjoyable, and profitable. 38 Librarians During each school period two students from the library study hall are in charge of the incoming and outgoing books. One takes care of the books that are allowed out for two weeks, while the other is in charge of books on the reserve shelf, which are to be taken out for one period or overnight. Several other duties are delegated to these librarians such as keeping the books in order and in good shape, seeing when and what books are overdue, and collecting fines. They also assist other students in finding books and refer¬ ence material. " No overdue books” is the slogan of the librarians this year. Thanks to Mrs. Sweeney and her assistants for having done a fine job throughout the year.

Quill and Scroll, a part of the National Honorary Society for outstanding work in the journalistic field, met each Monday the eighth period. In coopera¬ tion with the journalism class this group presented to the different tribes the important events that went on in the various wigwams of the reservation by publishing the Maroon and Blue Streamliner. The pounding of typewriters, red-letter days, proof-reading, and planning the layout are some of the " behind the scene " activities unknown to many who see only the finished copy every other Tuesday. Special editions were put out for the Auburn-Garrett football game, the Sectional Tourney, and Graduation. Each member of the club made a special st udy of a person whom they thought was an outstanding journalist. Later a report was given about this person. Another very interesting activity was a visit to the Fort Wayne Journ¬ al-Gazette office. While there, the members learned something about how a large newspaper office was run, and how the paper was printed. From this experience they brought back with them many ideas which helped to perfect their own paper. A Doping Contest was sponsored by the club, at the time of the Sectional Tourney, the winner receiving a Regional ticket. To belong to the National Society of Quill and Scroll is quite a privilege, as this is the only Honorary Society in our school. This year several mem¬ bers were recommended for membership. To be eligible for this a person must be in the upper third of his class, be of Junior or Senior standing, and must have done outstanding work in the journalistic fie.ld. Through the efforts of the staff, and the immeasurable patience of Miss Evard, the paper was a huge success. 40 Aeolian Staff We, the Aeolian staff of 1947, present to you the recordings of our four years ' sojourn within the Garrett High School Reservation. To us was given the task of putting into words and pictures these varied and multi-colored elements which make up the numerous phases of our school life. By our signs and pictures we give to you the tale of our glorious adventures, studies, sports, and pastimes. Many members of our class now face uncertain futures. Some will go on to further their education, while o hers will take positions in various lines of business; but whatever they do, it is our desire that this Aeolian, represent to them the happy carefree days spznt in Garrett High School. We have tried to show through the Aeolian pages our appreciation for these truly great years of our lives. We, the staff, express our thanks to our advisors. Miss Thrush, Miss Gump, and Mr. Flora, for their guidance in helping us through the many difficulties v hich confronted us during the making of the yearbook. Acting as literary advisor. Miss Thrush ' s unlimited patience in compiling the material for the Aeolian is worthy of recognition. Without Mr. Flora to figure out where all the wampum was to go, and Miss Gump to take charge of getting the copy typed, our yearbook could never have been completed. All of us have enjoyed our work upon the Aeolian; now may you enjoy the Aeolian itself. " In those days said Hiawatha, Lo how all things fade and perish! From the memory of the old men Pass away the great traditions. The achievements of the Warriors, The adventures of the hunters, All the wisdom of the Medas, All the craft of the Wobenos, All the marvelous dreams and visions. Of the Jossakeeds, the Prophets!

To learn to cultivate good crops and to till the soil so that their fellowmen may be provided with food, the Reservation has organized the Future Farm¬ ers of America. Its primary function is to teach the boys the fundamentals of farming; other purposes are to develop leadership and co-operation. This year the F. F. A. members took part in many activities such as ex¬ hibits at the County Fair, where several of the boys procured ribbons for their exhibits; visiting the Chicago International Livestock Show which proved vitally interesting as well as entertaining; a Pest Contest which was held be¬ tween the members of the north and south side groups. Providing their treasury with the necessary wampum did not prove too difficult as they sold Railroaders T-shirts, and apples and chocolate milk at the noon hours. For recreational activities, the boys formed a basketball team. During the course of the season they met F. F. A. teams from surrounding towns, and Garrett ' s Freshman-Sophomore aggregation. The F. F. A. is under the advisorship of Mr. Bateman, and the leadership of William Dawson, president; Gene Custer, vice-president; Richard Haynes, treasurer; Donald Eldridge, secretary; and Robert Sliger, reporter; and Rich¬ ard Ober, sentinel. 42 7 Yell Leaders Marjorie Fenstermaker, Mary Lou Smith, Doris Burtch, Colleen Miller, Martha Fletcher, Joyce Barnes. Fight ' em, team, fight ' eml Go get ' em Railroaders, go get ' em] Beat ' em team, beat ' em! These are only a few of the yells that helped boost the team through their hard-fought battles on to victory. These “war chants " were ably led by G. H. S. ' s six " squaws " . The three veterans of the group were Joyce Barnes, Martha Fletcher, and Marjorie Fenstermaker. Elected by popular vote, Doris Burtch, Mary Lou Smith, and Colleen Miller were chosen to fill the three vacancies. Throughout the year these girls have promoted good sportsmanship and school spirit among the boosters of our tribesmen. Before each football and basketball game a pow-wow was held to practice old yells and to learn new ones. One of the most spectacular activities, and a long to be remembered occa¬ sion in which these leaders proved their art was the ceremonial dance, a major part of the dedicatory program for the newly lighted football field. Six cheers to these girls for doing such a fine job. Girls’ Athletic Association To promote fellowship and good sportsmanship is the purpose of the Girls ' Athletic Club, and membership is open to all girls in grades nine to twelve. Basketball has been the outstanding activity of the year. Each Monday night the girls meet to play, displaying a friendly rivalry in all their games. At mid-season a shooting tournament was held, and at the end of the season a championship tourney. This year there were six teams, the captains being Carolyn Lewis (Jake ' s Lulus), Jayne Owens (Dej ' s Doj ' s) Margaret Smith (Rocket Maiden), Louise Covelli (Louise ' s Teases), Doris Burtch, (Burtch ' s Birdies), and Colleen Miller (Cokie ' s Sinkers). Other activities of this club included making maroon and blue shakers for the County Tournament. Also a banquet for the winning team of the tourney was held, at which time awards and presentations were made. Each Senior received a chevron for each year of ac¬ tivity, and if she participated during all four years she was presented with a basketball pin. The other outstanding av ard made was to the girl displaying the best sportsmanship throughout the year. Also an all-star team was chosen. Under the guidance of Miss Beula Johns, and the following officers: Pa.ricia Van Lear, president; Evelyn Smith, vice-president; and Marilyn Connor, secretary-treasurer, the club had a successful and entertaining year.

With the opening of the football season, Garrett Railroaders donned their war-paint to revenge their losses of the former year. The battle ground for the opening game was staged at Garrett. The Railroaders marched to victory over an unexperienced Portland team 25-0. Still determined by their precious victory, the tribesmen swamped the Deca¬ tur Yellow Jackets 40-3, to capture their first N. E. 1. C. victory. Playing for the first time under lights on their home field. Railroaders fought to the last min¬ ute, but bowed out to the Warsaw Tigers 13-6. Schlosser in the closing min¬ utes, injured his ankle, which ended his football season. The tribesmen more determined than ever, conquered the Columbia City Eagles 8-0 in a rough and tumble affair. The " Buckeyes " , under the leadership of " Mike " Sapp, met defeat at the hands of the Railroaders 25-12. Garrett paced the New Haven Bulldogs to the tune of 34-6, using second team tactics. The veteran warriors spent most of the game listening to the Army-Michigan thriller, while trying to escape the flood. The Railroaders stuck to the ground while trounc¬ ing the Bluff ton Warriors 19-6. A determined Red Devil team invaded the Rail¬ roaders territory for the first time, leaving a battle-scarred team in defeat. This match proved a thriller to the largest crowd ever entertained at the Gar¬ rett field. The Railroaders matched the Red Devils ' touchdown for touchdown until time ran out leaving the Red Devil in a short lead of 25-19. These Railroaders came through with a fine record of six wins and two defeats. 46 Tribesmen GERALD JOHNSON—Sr., quarterback. Captain Johnson ' s ability to pass was a continuous threat.

Defeat was first met at the hands of a fast moving Huntertown aggregation, downing the tribesmen 32-21. The Kendallville Comets launched a vigorous attack defeating the Railroaders 39-30. For the first time the Railroaders left friendly territory to invade the Butler Windmills camping grounds. This proved an unsuc¬ cessful encounter for the tribesmen who were downed 33-23. The third conference game then loomed into the dusk and was met head-on by the tribesmen. They proved their worth by downing the New Haven Bulldogs 42-28. Moving to new grounds, the tribesmen met a balanced Angola team. A last minute stand proved fruitless for the tribesmen, who dropped this encounter 34-32, but did not give in until the gun fired. A fourth conference game proved relentless for the Railroaders, who dropped this 35-32. This made a .500 aver¬ age in conference games. The Railroaders then met their all-time rivals, the Auburn Red Devils. This proved to be a very close battle. The score at the end of the quarter was 7-7, and at the half 14-14. Then the Railroaders took over and built up a lead which could not be overcome, the final score being 37-36. This was a third conference win fo rthe Rail¬ roaders. They then took to the war-path putting up a brilliant stand to prove one of Ken- dallville ' s toughest games of the season. A last minute rally came seconds too late and ended in defeat 45-41. The Railroaders then took to the county tourney, with great determination. A strong aggregation from St. Joe was the first opponent. They were downed 35-29 in a defensive battle. Then after an overnights rest Butler, an early season loss, was to be our opponent. In a last quarter rally, the Railroaders defeated the Windmills 35-30. The finals were to be played between Spencerville, who had won 15 straight games and Garrett, who had a broken record. The Railroaders won a very closely matched game 31-29. This was a de¬ cided victory, after a last minute rally. The Railroaders, still in good form, won over the Angola Hornets, 41-40, only to take to the road the following week and lose a conference game 42-38, to Bluffton. The Railroaders still in a slump, lost to Waterloo 39-35. They then trimmed Columbia Citq 40-34, after trailing the whole game. Next they traveled to Fort Wayne to be downed by the Concordia Cadets 47-37, although it was a nip-and-tuck battle until the last period, when the Cadets staged a rally. The Railroaders then beat the Butler Windmills 32-31, and moved to Avilla to snatch another quick victory 48-42. A predicted loss for Garrett was turned into a lop-sided victory for them, winning easily over Albion 46-30. The sectional tourney then loomed into the dusk. The Railroaders moved easily through the toughest bracket until the final game of the tourney. Their first opponent was Waterloo, who was easily downed by a score of 46-26. The second team saw much action in the initial games. The next opponent was Butler, who presented a very hard-fighting team, earlier in the season, but was overcome 40-28. Then came a battle between county champs, Fremont and Garrett. Fremont proved its worth, but was not as aggressive as the Rail¬ roaders, who won 35-28. This brought Garrett into the finals with the opponent, Spencer¬ ville, who had great determination. The Red Raiders played brilliantly, while Garret played the worst game of the tourney and were defeated 38-29. This left the Railroaders with a record of fifteen wins and ten losses, which included brilliant basketball in two tourna¬ ments and a very fine record in playing and sportsmanship. SECOND TEAM The boys of the second team made their first appearance defending their court against the Ashley Aces. They proved their power by downing the Aces. They went undefeated downing Decatur and Huntertown, but were upset by Kendallville. The mid-season slump came upon them early for they lost the following four games. Not yet had they gained their prestige when they entered the county tourney. They were then defeated by Butler, who had beaten them earlier in the season. They raised to the height of their power following the tournament winning three games, and then losing to Concordia by a small margin. JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM The fast moving midget team of the junior high turned in a record of five losses and three victories. In their first game the Auburn Red Devils defeated them but in a return match the Railroaders defeated the Red Devils. They were then entertained at Butler to meet with defeat, but again defeated Butler on their own floor. The Junior High was then de¬ feated by Fremont and also by Kendallville. They turned in a decisive victory over Fre¬ mont. The record of this team does not justify its worthiness. The boys were over powered by height, having only one tall man. 49 Basketball Reserves First row: Joe Meyers, Norval V iihrovr, Edwin Mortorif, Meredith Poer, Jack Clark, Charles Argubright, Tom DeWitt.

Hooray!! 61 Senior Prophecy In writing this prophecy, to seniors are told What foot-trails and war-paths their futures will hold. We won ' t spare scalps, our tomohawks are bound, To send you soon to the happy hunting ground. Drews, the smartest warrior of our tribe, A pretty paleface he soon will bribe. With love-herbs from medicine girl Hall, The silly red-skins think she cures all. When Custer ' s squaw is tilling the ground. He ' ll sit and watch her on the mound. But this treatment Phyllis will not stand. And she will take him well in hand. So she ' ll look real sweet for her red-skin, Mary Bair takes off in a run, Down to Cokie ' s and Mac ' s beauty shop, ' Cause she wants to get her hair done. On the way there, she stops a minute it seems. To look in on the champion basketball teams. There ' s Chief Clark, still raising the score, While Vondy ' s on the sideline yelling for more. Blueprints for wigwams. Smith will draw. And in them there will be no flaw. For the construction is up to Carl and Bob, And watching them will be “Warstler, the gob " Papooses, Winnie is planning to teach. And this goal, she will surely reach. For she, like her cousin, Mrs. Joke, Seems to have just what it will take. We Indians get food from Dietrick and Haynes, And good crops they do grow. Just ask Norris who eats from them, ' Cause he certainly ought to know. On worship days, you surely will see, Davidson and Deihl teaching Christianity, To Whitey, the red-skin, who seems to be bad. For he teases the pale-faces until they get mad. At Podunk Inn, good food you will find. Run by the Howey sisters from seven till nine. It is cooked by Russell, and prepared by a squaw. Whose name is Leah, and she serves one and all. When our war supplies run very low. We go to Heinies, which is run by Joe, With his helper, Sliger, the vrork gets done. Two seem to work much faster than one. If Hays is in " heap trouble " , he uses the phone. Picks up the receiver, and hears a loud moan. But it ' s only Ransom, trying to tease. For she gets tired of saying " Number Please " 62 Senior Prophecy To give the tribes much enjoyment, Are the songsters, Walters and Burtch; They sing Saturday night with all their might. But on Sunday, they go to Church. War drums are beat by Margie, and Kate, And this frightful sound, the Injuns hate. For against the pale-faces, they must fight. So they paint their faces, till they look a sight. A camp fire Westfall has actually built. Around which Maggie will dance. In the middle stands Stroh, who likes to blow. Whenever he gets a chance. Grinding corn is quite a task. And this of Jordan, we do ask. He grinds it for the squaw, DePew, Who in her family, has quite a few. Smoke signals are sent across the plains. To tell the tribes all the news. It is done by relayers, Louise and Bev, Who belong to the tribe of the Sioux. " Heap good " hunters are Rick and Don, And they hunt from morn till night. To get lots of meat for their tribe. And the quantity we can not describe. While looking at the lake one day, Some swimming beauties we saw, Robinson and Myers looked " heap good " And when we saw ' em we said, " Some squaw. " The clothing store, run by Hollis and Strock, Is really quite a sight to behold. For it doesn ' t matter about your age. They have things for young and old. In charge of the sports are Jerry and Bill, And the red-skins they do teach. For they ' re really quite good, and also heap strong. And they practice what they preach. When Souder ' s plays ball for Oklahoma, He is attracted by a gardenia aroma. Waunieta sells them amidst her kin. But she gives them away, if the team does win. Photographer Higgins, as he is known. Takes pictures of all his friends. Sometimes they ' re so surprisingly good. That as presents to them he sends. The pale-faces who wrote this are Mousie and Pat, And we ' ve enjoyed our work a lot. Don ' t take our scalps, for it was all in fun Of the things that will happen in days to come. 63 Medicine Men To the following medicine men, we extend our appreciation for the many cures and helps which they have administered to our various needs; The Garrett State Bank R.
