From the very first day of school until graduation pupils find themselves meeting new challenges, facing new problems, confronting new tasks. It is the " take-off " that counts most in these efforts; every further action is built upon the original ground-work. May 20 is graduation day for the Class of 1948. These youth will leave behind them the schoolrooms, blackboards, and books of high school. Before them will be college, jobs, and homes. But the facts learned in the twelve years of student-training will not be cast aside; all of this will be the impetus for the start of a greater period in the continuing flight of life. They ' re off — to dreams unfulfilled, to plans unfinished, to hopes set high. Ready? Contact! Roger! ! ! THE C€NTC€L TCWEC The " ofifice " — focal point of school activities — is familiar to every student and teacher; it is here that plans are made and administered to coordinate the many phases of life at Garrett High School. Long hours of hard labor are needed to make our school program operate smoothly. The superintendent and principal use their foresight and knowledge to determine the course that is to be taken. There is also an untold amount of intricate detail work to be done — tabulation, checkups, and reports — which are all a part of the duties of the school secretary. A gen- eral acquaintance with school laws and activities combined with personal traits of prompt- ness, dependability, and leadership have made the secretarial efficiency of Miss Nell well known throughout the twenty-four years which she has served Garrett Public Schools. Thus, the staff of the AEOLIAN takes pride in dedicating this book to Miss Nell, a dependable chief operator in the G. H. S. " control tower. " EI IEriNG A familiar sight to every one at Garrett High School is the study hall in room eleven. Hours of preparation are carried on in this large, well-equipped room which doubles as a library offering top-notch reference and study material as well as a variety of books and magazines for reading enjoyment. A group of girls in the home economics class, below, enacts a real " dinner. " They eat th eir own cooking and like it! At right, a portion of the mechanical drawing class is shown at work. These boys realize the job opportunities available for skilled draftsmen. r€UTH STUDIES r€C Often times — in the hustle and bustle of assignments, class discussions, and tests — we may lose sight of the actual purpose of school. Perhaps we ' ll have to reach our destinations in life before the real values derived from education can be fully realized. It doesn ' t take a grown-up, though, to understand that in this age of atoms, radar, and jets a well-rounded education plus practical experience are indispensible to anyone who expects to take his place in community life. Youth find it difficult to picture them- selves as the leaders of tomorrow, but through training and experience these students are preparing to pilot the world a few years hence. Top left. Future secretaries — Joan Carlin, Joan Bleck, Sharon DePew, Fannie May Rowe, Carolyn Stroh, Martha Bloom, and Margaret Weideman — peck away in first year tj ' ping class.

Bottom left; Mr. Woodcox explains the operation of the lathe to interested onlookers, Bill Hofferman, Bob Schurr, and Bill Leech. Bottom right: Esther Stevens watches the reaction of this chemistry experiment as Roland Cole adiusts a Bunsen burner. Above: " Nutchuck " tells of his life in Eskimo-land, and the Cole puppets are snapped during a dramatic moment of a plavlette called " The Tinderbox. " Classrooms aren ' t the only sight of learning; assemblies offer factual information plus entertainment. This year there were many outstanding assemblies with a variety of talents being displayed. Negro tenor Emanuel Mansfield and his accompaniest, Leo Rusmo, topped the card of professional talent. The robust singing so captured the hearts of the student body that three encores were demanded. Simon " Nutchuck " Oliver, a native-born Eskimo; Joan Bishop, a former Quiz Kid; Dr. Arnold Young, an English author and lecturer; and the Coles, puppet artists, completed the roster of stellar enter- tainment. This outside talent is paid for by the efforts of the students themselves, who raise the necessary funds in an annual magazine sales campaign. Seasonal holidays and sports events are the nuclei for annual student assemblies. The musical department of the school is featured in the Thanksgiving and Christmas com- memorations, while all add their enthusiasm to such get togethers as the pre-Auburn foot- ball game pep session. Throughout the year several recognition assemblies were also held to honor students who excelled in their various activities. Top magazine salesmen who led in earning money for the Assembly Fund are shown receiving their certificates from Miss Evard. Left to right: Gareth Reese, Mary Lou Clark, Joyce Getts, Susanna Nicholas, Dorothy Long, Bill Putt, William Stevens, Donald Gentry, Richard Best, and Evan Roberts. WARMING LP Every piece of machinery needs a frequent checkup. Many adjustments and repairs have to be made. New parts must sometimes be added. Top left: Mrs. Faulstick sells supplies at the bookstore. Top right: Those smiling individ- uals in the office seem to be there only for a routine checkup. Large-scale refueling is in effect each noon hour as these students ( bottom left) well illustrate. At bottom right, Shirley Baker and Marjorie Barrels undergo a " paint job " in the girl ' s lounge. What ' s the scramble at right? Thirsty stu- dents are crowding the drinking fountain in an effort to whet their whistles. CLCLD nCPPECS After spending hours in class- rooms, students rusli the concession stands, operated by various school organizations, to buy a candy bar or an apple or perhaps a shaker or a pennant for the game in the evening . . . , . . where the athletic contests offer thrilling entertainment to the as- sembled fans. Joyce Barnes leads the cheering section in a yell . . . . . . there are even music and re- freshments at the victory dance following the game. Swing your partner! Where there are youth, there ' s fun. Banquets, parties, picnics, and proms provide entertainment en masse ' . The formal events make students feel " grown- up " , important; the casual parties, free. Above: Mr. Minniear, Marilyn Heinlen, Joe Brokaw, and Bill Ervin wait for dessert at the 1947 Junior-Senior Ban- quet. " Mysterious Brown " entertains with his magic beneath the circus big top. Left: " Line forms to the right! " as students get refreshments at the " Autumn Shadows. " Messrs. Martin, Bush, Carlin, ' Weideman, and Owens are serving. Below: Leading the Grand March at the " Winter Wonderland " are Queen Joan Sell, King Norval Withrow, and court ( below right, standing) — Marilyn Haffner, Sharon Helbert, Shirley Baker, George Wappes, Bob Dawson, and Tom DeWitt. STUDENTS V€Cr IN CCMMUNBTy Not all cf students ' time is spent at school. Neither are all after-school and Saturday hours spent in leisure; students take advantage of job openings at local business concerns to earn extra spending money. Youth takes pride in doing a job well. They develop qualities cf depend- ability and persistence which will aid th-sm to better fulfill their life-time jobs. ' ■IP ' " !

Below; Crowded around the bell, which is be- ing donated to an Oklahoma mission church, are the students who helped to finance its purchase. Bottom: These church youth are shown in their pro- duction of a comedy, " Your Face Is Familiar. " Teen-agers realize the importance of the more serious side of life. Through youth organizations in the churches, young people promote worthy projects, cooperate in performing plays and pro- grams, sing in choirs, serve as ushers, and enthusiastically share the responsi- bilities of many other activities of the church. The world of tomorrow will be in good hands, for the youth of today are preparing well in all fields of endeavor. Above left: Principal John E. Flora writes checks, and Superintendent E. V. Minniear (above right) has just laid aside an educational magazine to pose for the staff photographer. C PCCIENCCD MEN ACE IN CHACeE CE CEECATICNS The administration has the herculean task of formulating the course of action that is to be followed by the school. The responsibilities of operating a public school system require the skilled planning of well-trained men. Although this is the first year for Mr. Minniear and Mr. Flora to hold their respective positions, the success and progress of the school program is tangible proof of their ability in the field of school administration.

Now is the hour when we must say goodbye To our Alma Mater, dear old Garrett High. Happy the years that we have spent with you. Dear are our mem ' ries as we bid adieu. We are the class of 1948. We say farewell now as we graduate. Forward together on pathways ever new. Loyal and faithful — hail! Maroon and Blue! (This may be sung to " Notf Is The Hour, ' Maori Farewell Song.) 16 CI asses The course of learning is endless. It is in school that the mind is trained and developed, preparation ■ for future flights is begun, and a foundation for cultural development is laid. The way is made more pleasurable by the fellow travelers on each flight — the friends we knew, our classmates. rLienT 48 Forward Ever, Backward Never CLASS OFFICERS, left to right: Top, David Grimm, president; Ned Schlosser, vice-president; below, Joan Sell, secre- tary; Margaret Smith, treasurer. Seniors have reached one destination in life ' s long journey; the class of 1948 chose as its motto, " Forward Ever, Backward Never, " to serve as a guide for future flights. May twentieth will be graduation day for these youth. They will receive their " wings " as a symbol of twelve years of preparation successfully completed. But, as they leave the halls of G. H. S., each will have inscribed in his mind and heart fond memories of days gone by " . . . Our first high school social affairs as freshmen — tea dances, sport dances, and those ever-popular skating parties . . . the highlight of our sophomore year, the Sopho- more-Junior Barn Dance.

Four bloomin ' Henglishmen in one cast — two real and two as real as possible. Up goes the price of monocles and tweeds! Bloaters and marmalade for breakfast! My word! But that ' s not all. Oh, my, no! There was Sol Messer, the movie magnet, and Lulu, the big- league newspaper columnist, and Renee Lamour, one of Hollywood ' s most ambitious chiselers, and " Soak- ' em-Hard " Pratt, the dastardly villian about to foreclose on poor old Grimes, the hotel pro- prietor, and Waldo " No appreciation " Fitts, porter and general nuisance, who could play any part ever invented, and Mrs. Skinner, who was as 1890-ish as the law will allow, and her fresh young insurgent of a daughter, Dora Mae, and Olive Ordway, who ate raw cauliflower and was ready on a moment ' s notice to teach you the Uplift Walk, and Janet Moore, the comeliest of college sweethearts, and Bill Douglas without a dime but with a head full of ideas — mostly about Janet, and Marcella Jenks, an ambitious but none-too-shrewd news hawk, and — but why go on? Anyone who saw the 1948 senior class play, " GUESS AGAIN, " met all of these hilarious characters in person. And none will forget Lord Wiggleton. Four Lord Wiggletons! Yes, sir — four! 25 rLienT 49 Forty-niners strike it rich CLASS OFFICERS, left to right: Tom De Witt, president; DeWayne Harris, vice-president; Marcene Ashenfelter, secretary-treasurer; and Marilyn Conner and Warren Hall, business managers. Wherever you go — there ' s a junior! The projects and activities of the junior class keep its members running errands and fulfilling duties on a ' round-the-clock basis. To raise funds for the traditional Junior-Senior Banquet the class sells candy, ice-cream, and soft drinks before and after school and at athletic contests. This year the basketb all tournaments offered unusual opportunities for raising funds; and the seniors reaped the benefits at another " super ' banquet. The class sponsors — Mrs. Sweeney, Mrs. Faulstick, and Mr. Bateman — contributed much to the success of the projects through business instruction and through actual labor.

The juniors also sponsored after-game victory dances and a school skating party. The class of 1949 is zooming toward graduation. Their course is set full speed ahead. Happy Landing!

Sophomores — the class of 1950 — are some of the most active students in Garrett High. Rob- ert Dawson, president; Pat Owens, vice-president; Judy Clark, secretary; Jerry Campbell, treasurer; and Roberr Schurr, program chairman, kept their class activities humming though business and program meetings and at social activities, including the Valentine ' s and the April Fool ' s parties. Under the supervision of Miss Evard, Mr. Berry, and Mr. Rahmer, valuable programs were presented by the home rooms on alternate Tuesdays. The sophomores gave their whole-hearted cooperation to school and class activities; the traits of leadership and cooperation developed by these students will be indispensible next year when they will undertake the many projects of the junior class.

Although freshmen are often called " greenies, " this year ' s class has done much to prove that they are capable of accepting responsibilities and challenges. Under the leadership of Mrs. Schlecht and Mr. Woodcox, the freshmen have developed into a well-organized group of students. The guid- ance periods were spent in learning to use correct etiquette and in acquiring a knowledge of dif- ferent vocational fields. Having also been instructed in the laws of parliametary procedure, the class elected officers. Several interesting student discussions concerned inferiority and superiority com- plexes, chains of habits, and humor. Not all of the time was spent on intellectual development, however, for the freshmen class held an enjoyable old-fashioned barn-dance! The freshmen have already proven their worth; they are ready to fill the positions as sophomores in ' 49. FIRST ROW: Ralph Baker, Keith Anderson, Frank Dennis, Ronald Beebe, Kenneth HoUis.

" 31 TLIGHT G» Junior high Nedslings eye hish school life The 1948 nine-B ' s hold the distinction of being the last class of mid-year students to enter Garrett High School. These pupils ha- already had a taste of high school life and are eager to continue their flight onward and up i. As sponsor, Mr. Rose guided the " half-freshmen " in discussions of current events, schoo ' ., and other topics of interest to them. The eighth grade, under th: ■. ecti ' ;.! of Mr. Baker and Mr. Harman, was a very active group. Each semester Mr. Baker ' s home room elected officers who led their classmates in the presentation of plays, games, blackboard drills, and, during the first semester, in reading parts of " Treasure Island. " The guidance activities of Mr. Harman ' s home room included pantomimes, mock trials, music appreciation, and discussions. The eighth grade and the nine-B ' s combined their efforts to sponsor two hilarious parties. The thrill of being real high school pupils will be realized next fall by these energetic fledglings when they will take over the controls of the freshman class — heading straight for 1952!

Si SCL€I$T$ Will Franks School where new worlds are opened to young minds Six years old! and the first day of school — the day to which every child looks with eager anticipation, the day to which those who are older look back with fond recollection. How well we all remember those first few days — days which suddenly leap into years. Learning to count and to know which color was which . . . the thrill when you could spell your own name (last name, too! ) . . . the parties, plays, and programs . . . spelling- bees, arithmetic, nouns and verbs — the memories are unlimited for the tasks were many. School — where we met so many new friends and new ideas. Each year, one more step toward that final graduation into adult life. And so ... a salute to the youth who are just beginning that long, long flight toward their senior year! May they prepare well so that their journeys may be smooth — that their destinations may be reached successfully. There are many special events which this year ' s students in the Will Franks School will long cherish. The pictures, stories, and singing made school fun instead of work. Fifth grade students received " travel letters " which were read and then illustrated by student drawings. Many students made appropriate pictures and posters which were dis- played in the Public Library during Good Book Week. The Christmas season offered many opportunities for classroom projects. Each room had its own gaily decorated tree, and the pupils exchanged gifts. Mrs. Stuck ' s class produced a beautiful cut-work picture of the Bethlehem scene, while the children in Miss Hall ' s room made plaster of Paris plaques of their hand prints for gifts to the mothers. All the grade students saw two technicolor movies — one about the birth of Christ, and the other about Santa Claus, Indiana. Throughout the year were also several classroom plays and a magician show. The children helped boys and girls in other lands by collecting over 300 cans of milk for the " Friendship Train. " The pupils also took an active part in gathering clothes for a local family whose home was destroyed by fire. Each forenoon milk was served to the children — a project carried on again this year through the courtesy of the Sigma Phi Gamma. The students cooperate by bringing boxes of crackers to be eaten with the milk. i Posing at the dedication of the new music room are (left to right) : Mr. Ober, Mr. Minniear, Miss Ellert, Miss Gilbert, Mr. Manrow, Mrs. Crow, Miss Sil- berg, Miss Hall, Mrs. Stuck, Miss Dean, Mrs. Peters, and Miss Cobler. During National Education Week the pupils invited their parents to attend school on a special " visiting day. " The new music room was decorated with waxed fall leaves and various weeds painted by the children. Here the pupils served punch, wafers, nuts, and candy to the ninety parents who attended. Mothers of the first grade students formed a special club whose monthly meetings served to better acquaint these parents with the problems and pleasures of the children who have just started their school careers.

They provide outlets for personal talents and give opportunities for meeting people and building character. Through club activities, students develop traits of leadership, cooperation, and initiative. €N THE CEAM Activities add flavor to the three R s The Y-Teen Club strives to attain the high purpose, " To find and give the best. " Heading the club ' s many activities were the annual sandwich sales, tea dances, and the sale of stationery and Christmas cards. The club also sponsored the colorful Winter Won- derland Dance at which the elected King, Queen, and Court reigned. One of the most outstanding of the bi-weekly programs was a lecture by Mrs. Hartman, probate officer of the Fort Wayne Juvenile Court. In February a delegation of the girls attended the North- ern Indiana Conference at Gary. Mrs. Beulah Faulstick, although previously unfamiliar with Y-Teen work, capably accepted the reins of sponsor from Miss Marie Thrush, who resigned after having given sixteen years of devoted service to Girl Reserves and Y-Teen. Helping to lead the club were Margaret Smith, president; Shirley Baker, vice-president; Marcine Ashenfelter, sec- retary; Margaret Weideman, treasurer; Jayne Owens, program chairman; Joan Helbert, service chairman; and Dorothy Martin, song leader.

To create Christian ideals and good fellowship in the home, the school, and the community is the purpose of the Hi-Y Club sponsored by Mr. Rose. Pertinent topics concerning problems of youth are discussed at the weekly meetings. This year the club stressed pencil and pennant sales to raise its pledge for the YMCA Rehabilitation Fund. The Hi-Y boys also sponsored several welfare drives in the school and a high school skating party. Many members attended and participated in the Third District Hi-Y conferences at Ligonier and Waterloo. The president of the club was Richard Ober; Charles Hartle, vice-president; Joe DeVeny, sec- retary; Marvin Sherman, treasurer. The Bible Club is organized for pupils of senior high school level who are interested in in- creasing their knowledge and appreciation of the English Bible. In accordance with the provisions of the Indiana state course of study, elective credit is given to those who wish to pursue the study for sufficient time. Each year a different phase of the Bible is studied — this year ' s topic being " The Life of Christ. " The study group is under the guidance of Mr. Sherman.

The Blue Triangle club — like its big sister, Y-Teen — has as its purpose " to find and give the best. " Through participation in the various club activities, each girl has an opportunity to develop her talents and to enrich her character and personality. Special Blue Triangle projects included a clothes collection for Polish relief and the annual sale of Christmas cards and wrappings. A Mother and Daughter Tea, a Valentine party, and a full dress Halloween part ' highlighted the social activities. Leaders of the club were Mrs. Schlect, sponsor; Sue Ann Rowe, president; Jacquelin Roberts, vice-president; Janet Limpert, secretary; an d Patricia Bartlett, treasurer. " More and better readers ' is ths year library slogan; and Mrs. Sweeney, school librarian, has worked diligently to help carry out that idea. Helping her with the many tasks — such as checking books, collecting fines, and helping students to locate bocks — are a group of high school students each of whom serves as librarian during her study period. Every student has a keen appreciation for the services these librarians render to our school.

The F. F. A. club combines leadership and practical experience to help interested boys to be- come better trained in the principals of farming. Through the sale of apples and chocolate milk to students, and seeds to farmers, the club raises funds which it uses to purchase new equipment for the " ag " shop. The club sponsored several judging teams and also a club basketball team. The officers were Richard Haynes, president; Karl Sliger, vice-president; Donald Eldridge, secretary; Lee Cook, treasurer; Dale Yarde, reporter; and Richard Ober, sentinel. The club is spon- sored by Mr. Bateman, head of the agriculture department. The basis of the Scout Club ' s activity is its motto, " Be Prepared. " Preparing for future life, the Scouts better their school and community through group projects including the " good deeds " at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Various Scout tests and merit badge and leadership programs are held throughout the year to broaden each member ' s knowledge of Scouting. The Scout Club is under the capable leadership of Mr. Woodcox, sponsor; Edwin Mortorff, junior assistant scout master; and Martin Woodcox, senior patrol leader. FIRST ROW: D. Gordon, R. Grimes, D.

Everyone likes to hear a good song. Girls " Glee Club and Mixed Chorus are two of the or- ganized groups which strive to make good music. Girls from all four high school grades compose the Girls ' Glee Club, while the Mixed Chorus is a blend of both male and female voices. Both groups performed at the Twentieth Century Club during the Christmas season, at the Spring Con- cert, and at the Commencement and Baccalaureate services. The Mixed Chorus also presented spe- cial numbers at the Thanksgiving assembly. Mr. Gilbert Coble is director of both organizations.

This year was eventful for the Garrett Band. Membership was increased to sixty and the talents were greatly improved. Piloted by Mrs. Soudah, the band completed a successful mission with in-between stops at football and basketball games, the Auburn fair, the Halloween parade, the County Concert at Auburn, and the Spring Concert. The twirlers, whose superb performances en- livened the half-time activities at athletic contests, were (below J left to right: Marlene Partee, Sue Stephenson, Patricia Owens, and Joan Rimmel. Because of its enlarged financial reserves the band was able to purchase new hats, braids, belts, and music stands. The Band Parents ' Club was highly instrumental in this project. Those serving as officers of the band were; Marvin Sherman, president; Jayne Owens, vice- president; Florine Bush, secretary; and Marilyn Brown, treasurer. The Boys ' Quartet, a new member of the music department this year, acquired the reputation of being able to add a delightful bit of music and comedy to many high school and community gather- ings. The numbers varied from humorous skits to classical selections and Negro Spirituals. The members were (below) left to right: Ted Fletcher, and Marvin Sherman, tenors; Dick Ober and Joe DeVeny, basses; and, at the piano, Phyllis Beck. Mrs. Soudah directed the group. 47 SEATED : Frank Dammann. Carol Kessler. Phyllis Beck, Miss Evard, Jayne Owen , Charles Argubright.

Throu gh the efforts of Miss Evard and staff, the Maroon and Blue Streamliner was again published. The paper, giving a complete coverage of all Garrett High School news, was pre- sented to the eager subscribers every two weeks. Highlights of the paper were its special issues emphasizing sports events, the Christmas season, and graduation. The AEOLIAN staff has worked long and hard to compile this view of life at Garrett High School. This could not have been accomplished without the careful supervision of Miss Thrush, literary advisor; Miss Gump, typing supervisor; Mr. Sherman, business advisor; and Mr. Berry, photographer.

They gain ideas of teamwork, fair play, and sportsmanship, plus the thrill of winning in competitive contests. Loyal fans boost the teams as they win laurels for Garrett High. rLTiNG men . . W- - T The teams zoomed on and on Coaches Harman, Parks, and Bateman. Seldom in Garrett High School ' s athletic history have Railroader teams been so outstanding in both football and basketball the same year. The county and sectional basketball crowns, eight straight football victories, an admirable track squad, plus a top-notch cross-country team are enough to make any coach happy and proud. The coaches have had the responsibility of training and de- veloping the squads into smooth-running teams. With the support of the fans, led by six energetic cheerleaders, the Railroaders have spelled victory, victory, victory!

Garrett High School ' s 1947 football team completed one of the most successful grid- iron campaigns in the history of the school. The team compiled a record of eight straight victories while it lost only the season ' s final game to a great Auburn team. Garrett team members who placed on All-Conference and All-State teams were: Ned Schlosser and George Pearson, both placing on the NEIC first team as well as receiving AU-State hon- orable mention; Jack Clark, placing on the NEIC second team; Jim Moses, Bill Putt, and Norval Withrow receiving NEIC honorable mention. Starting the season with only four regulars returning — Schlosser, Pearson, Simpson, and Withrow — Coach Park ' s forces gained strength through the experience from each contest. The Railroaders opened the season by journeying to Portland where they eked out a 7-6 win over a veteran Panther eleven. The Maroon and Blue clad gridmen made their first home and conference appear- ance a victorious one as they beat back a smbborn crew of Yellow Jackets from Decatur, 7-2. Against Warsaw the Railroaders came from behind with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to take a thriller and a conference game from the Tigers, 39-29. Pre- cision passes, long runs, and superb blocking highlighted the evening ' s play. Entertaining Columbia City in an NEIC game, the Railroaders made the Eagles victim number four by a 29 to 18 score. The following Friday night the team met a de- termined group of Cadets from Concordia. The locals ' ability to convert their extra points decided the issue 14-12. Returning to conference play, the Railroaders trounced the New Haven Bulldogs 25-6 for their sixth straight victory. At Bluff ton the Railroaders kept their winning string alive at seven as they came from behind in the last half to grind out a 14-7 triumph over the Tigers in a hard-fought contest. In less than a week the Rail- roaders played host to Mike Sapp ' s Hicksville Aces and handed the boys from the Buckeye state a 33-0 licking in a speedy aerial attack. 61 Eigiit victories . . one defeat October 31, Halloween night, in the final game of the season, the Railroaders met Auburn — which team likewise had, until then, an un- defeated season. Thus, the conference title was at stake. During the first half, before the Rail- roaders could harness Auburn ' s devastating pass- ing attack, the Red Devils built up a 26 to 6 lead. The last half revealed more of the type of game that was to be expected as the teams battled on even terms, with Auburn scoring once more late in the game. The Railroaders ' one consolation was that they were the first and only team to score against the Red Devils during the 1947 season. Eight victories and one defeat is a record of which any team may be justly proud! The GHS reserve football squad completed a five game schedule in the 1947 season which in- cluded games with Decatur, Columbia City, Howe Military Academy, and two games with Auburn. Though the records reveal that the Railroader " B ' s " gained only a tie with Columbia City against four defeats, the true value that these under-classmen gained in experience will be shown next year when these boys step into varsity positions. 1947 — Football Record — Garrett 7 Portland 6 Garrett 7 Decatur 2 Garrett 39 Warsaw 29 Garrett 29 Col.

TOM DBWITT — Jr., HB, 1 yr. — " Tommy ' s " running and passing will be of great value to the 1948 team. 51 SECOND ROW: HOWARD SIMPSON— Sr., G, 3 yr.— " Cowboy ' s " rough tactics kept the referees constantly on the job. RICHARD OBER— Sr„ T, 2 yr.— " Dick " will be remembered as the red, white, and blue boy — and many a foe were " blue " because of him. NORVAL WITHROW — Sr., C, 3 yr. — " Nonnie ' s " chatter and fight did much to keep the team alive. BILL PUTT — Jr., G, 2 yr. — " Putter " was the little boy with a big grin.

BILL ERVIN— Sr., G, 1 yr.— " Willie " was the come- dian of the squad, but once upon the gridiron, it was all seri- ousness. KARL SLIGER — Sr., G, 1 yr. — " Slinger " was the farmer boy who threw tackles like he threw hay. They come through with flying colors Garrett High School ' s sparkling hardwood demons turned in a record of twenty victories against six defeats. The Railroaders en- hanced their basketball prestige by copping the DeKalb County and the sectional championships, besides lasting in the regional play until the final round when they bowed to the strong Monroe- ville Cubs, 37-25. Statistics reveal that the Maroon and Blue cagers hit for 1,032 points in their twenty-six games — an offensive average of nearly forty points per game. On the defensive side of the ledger, the " Parksmen " limited their opponents to a total of 832 points for a fine defensive average of only thirty-two points per contest. The GHS fans matched the team spirit with support un- equalled in many years of Garrett ' s athletic history. Displays m downtown business houses, a community pep session preceding the re ' .;ional, and a cheering section fully bedecked in railroader re- galia added much color and spirit to the regional games. The coaches and principals of schools in the NEIC gave fitting recognition to the Garrett team by selecting Ned Schlosser as an all-conference first team forward, and Meredith Poer as center on the second team. In addition, George Pearson received honorable mention as forward, and Jack Clark received honorable mention as guard. We Opponent They We Opponent They :m ....Decatur 31 52..

The 1948 track squad was built around eight returning lettermen — Schlosser, Clady, J. Clark, Argubright, Hartle, Mortorff, M.
