In his passing we have lost a much loved and valued instructor. We hold a great respect for him and feel that what he has contributed to our education could never be replaced. Were there need to repay him, it could never be adequately done, but in an attempt to make a simple return, we dedicate this book.

John Green was the leader with a 3.68 rating, followed by JoAnn Baldwin and Shirley Dickinson, tied at 3.61. The others, Harold Soudah, Joan Rimmell, Kaye La- Follette, and Bonnie Schortgcn, are in that order. These students can be justly proud of their accomplishments—they were made possible only by hard work and a determination to succeed.

Student Council The student council is a school or¬ ganization through which students may participate in the democratic administra¬ tion of their school. Our G. H. S. Student Council has fulfilled this oh ligation. It has carried on many activities thi.s year. It staged two campaigns for better school behavior. These were orderly conduct in the halls and in the g ym¬ nasium. It sponsored the Tuberculosis C ' ln- paign, the Red Cross Drive, and work¬ ing along with Civil Defense, procured " dog tags " for G. H. S. students. The Student Council under the guid¬ ance of Mr. Flora provided for better student-teacher relationships which bene¬ fited not only the school as a whole, but each student individually.

It increased its membership and bought new uniforms and equip¬ ment. The band room was sound-proofed, among other improvements. The band began the 1952-5,3 year by playing at home football games, providing half-time enter¬ tainment for all spectators. In November the band began playing at basket- bill game,-;. At these games our baton tss ' irlers appeared costumed at times as Indians, cowboys, and Santa Clauses, generally in tread with the t n ' .e or season. The band played for the annual Christmas program and in January they began playing Sousa’s marches. After seeing the movie, " Stars and Stripes Forever, " all band members were greatly " inspired. " One of the biggest events of the year for the Page 12 Row 1; Janet Malcolm and Johanna Heinzerling.

Twirlers I, band was on February 19 when it gave an eight- minute performance between the halves of a pro¬ fessional basketball game at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. On February 21, Joan Rimmell, witli othei members of the music department, went to the baton twirling contests in Indianapolis. On March 5, the tympani finally arrived. They were the first tympani ever owned by a G. H. S. band. Alice Faye Brand, with the help of Mr. Cole, played the tympani and added much to the overatures and other concert music. In order to provide funds for improvements in the band, the annual Tag Day was held, and then on April 11 the big day finally arrived—the dis¬ trict band contest at Kendallville. The last time the Senior members of the band performed was at the last event of the year. Commencement, on May 21, 1953. TWIRLFRS Kneeling: Marlene Feick and Margie Hilkey.

Aeolian The 1953 Aeolian staff began to get down to work in November, 1952. Editor Jo Ann Baldwin, with the help of Mrs. Sweeney, faculty advisor, got the production staff off to a good start. First the theme was chosen and then artist Dorcas Parker drew ' our cover. The real work then began. Business Manager Kay Walton and Mrs. Schlea kept the business staff busy with money matters. They solicited all the business and professional people of Garrett, and secured advertisers and subscribers. Harold Soudah kept the school bright with the glare of his flashbulbs, and Sports Editor Allen Brand was busy throughout the season gathering all the sports news and pictures. Kaye LaFollette and Bonnie Schortgen made sure that every person in G.H.S. was " featured” in the 1953 Aeolian. Milgie Howard gath¬ ered all news about the faculty, and Jannette Votrie " looked up” the 1952 grads. Finally all copy was ready for typist Gwyneth Manges and the Aeolian went to press. We were all sure, then, that we would put out a book. Althimgh all had special jobs, everybody w ' orked to¬ gether until the whole task was completed and the books were distributed to the students.

Maroon and Blue Streamliner A total of 350 subscriptions, the largest subscription number ever, marked the Maroon and Blue s past year In this campaign, the staff strove for 100 per cent home room subscription. Home Room 5, seventh graders, was the first to achieve the goal. Other home rooms came in 100 per cent within a Short time. Many alumni, businessmen, and teachers also aided in making this cam¬ paign a success by subscribing. Behind the scenes, many things took place in the tremendous job of publishing a paper: inter¬ views, soliciting merchamts, proofreading, putting the baby to bed,” and circulation of each issue. The staff also found time to ' sponsor a presidential popularity contest during the national elec¬ tion between Eisenhower and Stevenson. Eisenhower won by a sweeping majority. Tournament time found the journalists in the midst of sponsoring a doping contest.” The prize was money equivalent to the cost of a regional ticket. Under the competent leadership of Miss Evard and the efforts of the journalism staff, the Streamliner was a success as a mirror of the activities and the daily life around Garrett High School.

These and many other questions were answered by student librarians and Mrs. Sweeney during the past school year. Being a librarian is a job of gieat responsibility. Not only must the librarian be accurate in her information, be able at a moment’s notice to supply this information, be cordial and encourage students to use the library ' s facilities, but she must also be able to cultivate usage of good books and urge that books be returned promptly. Besides a well-stocked jsupply of fiction, non-fiction, and reference books, our school library has a varied collection of informative magazines which are kept on file for reference use. With the use of part of the annual magazine-sales-campaign funds, filmstrips ami a projectoi ' have been purchased for use in Room 4, the audio-visLurl center of our school, also under the Supervision of the library.

Y-Teens I he Y-Ieen Club of 1952-53 was quite active. They carried out social activities for their own members and they combined with the Blue Triangle in campaigns to benefit all girls in Garrett High. They also sent aid to foreign countries to make the year a highly successful one. One of the biggest projects of the year was the " Good Personal Appearance Campaign. The Blue Triangle was asked to co-operate and all junior high girls were invited. The program began with a film on good grcKimmg which was followed by a fashion show and panel discussion. The goal was to eliminate slacks and pinned-up " hair from the halls of Garrett High. One of the primary of Y-Teens is to provide a social program for its members. In accomplishing this end, two parties were held. The first was a semi-formal dance, " Make Believe Island.” A god and goddess of " Make Believe” were selected. They were Duane Lepard and Shirley Dickinson, both seniors. Mr. Dean Bechtol was featured on the pro¬ gram, giving an interesting chalk talk. " Cokes Me In,” a sweaiter-.sock hop, was our other party given March 6. All enjoyed this party even if they did go home with " calloused soles.” Mr. Pugh gave his unique rendition of " Midsummer Night’s Dream,” as a highlight on the program. In order to " foot the bills " the (ilub unilertook three money-making projects. They were two highly successful sandwich sales and one bake sale. The Y-Teen spring conference was held at Elkhaft. Several Garrett representatives attended and enjoyed the day. Miss Jean Davidson of Scotland addressed tbe group aiul was interesting to all. The Y-Teens of 1952-53 were a successful club and owe this success not only to co-operative members, but also ro Miss Gump and Mrs. Faulstick, our able and enthusi¬ astic sponsors, who supported us in every undertaking.

The Blue Triangles opened the year with an initiation party in place of the old initiation ritual to welcome new freshmen members. The girls were blindfolded and made to walk on macaroni, a pan of skinned grapes, a pan of ice cubes, and then wet sponges. The girls were given a piece of macaroni to eat and then told it was a worm. The worst being over, games were played, and refresh¬ ments were served. All, sophomores as well as freshmen, found that the party was much more enjoyable than the former initiatinrt rites. The annual Christmas card sale was launched in No¬ vember and proved to be the most successful ever held in the history of the Blue Triangle. Credit for this success goes to the co-operation of all the girls and efficient man¬ agement of Virginia Souder, treasurer. The Club’s Service Committee launched its annual charity program by making 35 dolls and raking them to the Allen County Children’s Home. All who volunteered to make a doll were given the same materials, a sock and a plastic face. The completed doll was the product of each girl’s imagination and proved most clever and interesting. These dolls were delivered on December 18. There were enough dolls for all children of the toddler age in the Home. One of the most interesting programs held during the year was a dress designing contest. The girls were divided into groups, and each group was given a newspaper. From this paper they made a dress. After the dresses were com¬ pleted, they were modeled and judged. In February a joint meeting of Blue Triangle and Y- Teens was held. The Triangle Club staged a fashion show of dresses from the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. Many interesting ’specimens” appeared, some dresses very long, some very short, but all typical of their time. The biggest project of the year was the adoption of of Fvrylkia Ivanidou, a ten-year old Greek girl. Both of her parents are dead, and the Club has adopted Evrykiia for one year. The application was filed in January, and in March the adoption was completed. The Blue Triangle girls earned the money to pay for the adoption by .‘ ' e lling Christmas cards. The girls write to Fvryklia and send her boxes of clothing and soap. Many children such as she have been given a new start in life by the efforts of organ¬ izations like the Blue Triangle. The annual spring party for mothers was held in May. This affair, the climax of all the activities of the Blue Tri¬ angle, ended a very profitable and enjoyable year.

' 1 believe in the future of farming with a faith born not of words, but of deeds ... " are familiar words to every F.F.A. member in not only our local chapter, but throughout the United States. The Future Farmers of America is a national organization that reaches from the state of Maine to Puerto Rico and from Washington to Hawaii. The chapter carried out several co-operative activities which included a pest contest, selling garden seeds, schedule pencils, and milk at noon. A registered Berkshire gilt was also purchased and given to one of the members to encourage pure-bred swine production. An eighth grade party was sponsored by this group to acquaint pupils in rural areas with high school life. Several boys also entered in the state contests and five worked for the Hoosier Farmer Degree— the highest award offered by the state. Mr. Bateman is our advisor. Ofhcers include: Gordon Bloom, president; Clyde Warstler, vice- president; Jerry Clark, secretary; Tom Smith, treasurer; Max Wappes, reporter; and Dale Kennedy, watch dog.

Scout club , Be Prepared " — ' Fills is the motto that every Boy Scout tries to live up to. ' Phis idea has been very well demonstrated by the scouts as busy leaders in community activities and through their group projects and good deeds. During Boy Scout Week they showed their leadership ability by taking charge of the city government for one day. An annual pilgrimage to the Lincoln Life Plaza in Fort Wayne on Lincoln’s Birthday was also one of the many activities that the dub participated in. Most of the time rhis year was spent in working toward Merit Badges. ' Phere are I’ " ! that can be earned. These Merit Badges are for the purpose of helping boys to choose different occupa¬ tions and hobbies or pastimes. Those that the Scout Club has worked on this year include wood¬ work, w( idturning, woodcarving, pioneering, painting, metal work, leathercraft, carpentry, bas¬ ketry, ind athletics. A Star Scout must earn five Merit Badges to get this rank, a Life Scout ten, aiul an Eagle Scout twenty-one. first aid . . . handicraft . . . signaling 1 Chicago Trip Those members of rhe United States History class who boarded the bus, with Chicago as its destination, will never forget the experience shared by all. At three o’clock in rhe morning our Indiana Railroad bus was loaded with cameras, cookies, newspapers, magazines, comic books, and thirty-five sleepy, but excited, travelers. Our early start and the sacks of cookies enabled us to reach Walkerton before anyone was ready for breakfast. This was our first stop and after eating, we were on our way once more. We got a view of rhe giant steel mills and other points of interest along the highway before we " hit” Chicago. Our first host was rhe Chicago Museum of Natural History. The entire morning was spent viewing the things about which we had previously studied in class. Everyone enjoyed the tour through the museum and also rhe lunch served in the museum cafeteria. On our way to the Museum of Science and Industry, we spent an hour at Lincoln Park Zoo. The Museum of Science and Industry was found to be very interesting and many claimed it as the best part of the trip. Everyone was disappointed when time of departure arrived. Our next stop was at Chinatown. Souvenirs, Chinese newspapers, and strange customs struck everyone’s eye. After a stroll past oriental buildings and through the strange streets, we were back in the bus headed for a walk down Maxwell Street. Hawkers and owners of bargaining stands were found everywhere. Many of us were glad to get back in rhe bus and away from the clamor of the busy street. A ride past the University of Chicago and a short stop ended our stay in the Windy City. A feeling of tiredness began to creep over our bus load and many were too exhausted to stay awake. We arrived back in Garrett very tired, but with many memories—memories that will live and be told over and over again. Pa e 24 .fi J i UMl P. r ll 1 f 389 fi FH ' ■1 Mister Co-Ed The three-act farce-comedy, " Mr. Co-Ed, ’ was pre¬ sented April 9 and 10 by the senior class. It was the story of how a young cowboy, eager for an education, found him¬ self in a comedy of errors on the campus of an exclusive girls’ school. Some of the high points are shown in the accompanying pictures. Larry Lantz (Lotus, the cowhand) arrives on the ' pas¬ ture” of Cedar Hill College and loses no time in discovering one of the advantages of higher education. Kaye La- Follecte (Emily, the scholarship student) pretends, without much success, not to notice. Here helping to do the less spectacular but very neces¬ sary work behind the scenes are Dorcas Parker, posters, Gordon Bloom, publicity; Carolyn Miller, props; and Max Bock, stage manager. Kay Walton (Miss Hayworth, the owner of Cedar Hill if you don’t count the mortgages) worries over her bills; Bill Byanski (Oliver Lee Oliver of the Oliver Academy) worries over how ' to buy Cedar Hill; and Kent Gordon (Homer, the uninhibited and unpaid janitor) worries not at all. Jeanne Todd (Mrs. Colgate-Brewster, who holds the mortgages) finally gets enough of Clyde Warstler (Gilbert Glyer, the famous English poet who composes poetry with spaces”) and throws him out. Gwyneth Manges (Bernice), Joan Rimmell (Carol), and JoAnn Baldwin (Ginny) warm up the sch ool spirit at the beginning of the school year with a verse from the Cedar Hill Loyalty Song, while Donna Bonnett (Ruby) throws cold water. Or is it cold shoulder? In the accompanying pictures, Mary Kay Hollis (Miss Carr, a teacher of English) thrills to the lure of poetry, while her athletic colleague, Patricia Diederich (Miss Pooley of the physical education department) expounds her theories of body building. Mrs. Schlecht directed the production. Mrs. Sweeney and Mr. Allyn, co-sponsors of the senior class, assisted. 1 11 Ke ‘M Junior-Senior Banquet On May 3, 1952, all Juniors and Seniors entered into “The Realm of King Neptune Under the Sea.” All found it was worth all the time and money spent by the Junior Class. We met mermaids and saw all the monster of the deep sea. We found Pirates and their sunken ship full of treasures, and finally we met King Neptune himself. The entire evening was one which all of us will remember for a long tim. Page 27 On May 18, all Juniors and Seniors, midst fog and rain, donned their play shoes and set out for Pokagon State Park for the Junior-Senior Picnic. A few of the daring went swimming and others played ball, rode horses, or went boating. Of course, the main event of the day was the potluck supper in the pavilion. At the close of the day, all were sure that the weather hadn’t dampened their spirits or ruined their day.

ROBERT HARMON frosh-soph. coach junior-high coach Athletic Department The Athletic Department has striven for more and better sports throughout the ’ 52 -’ 5 . year. The t hree main sports, football, basketball, and track, were still maintained, but these were on a much larger scale than in previous years. The Athletic Department furnished enough equipment, coaches, supervisors, and time so that every boy in high school could participate in any sport he desired. For boys who did not make the varsity basketball team, a newly organized noon-league was formed. This was the first time that such a league was carried out, but it proved very successful. These thirty boys who made up the league learned better sportsmanship, had supervised recreation, and gained a closer relationship with sports through the efforts of those who made this league possible. Enough football equipment was available for any boy who wanted to participate. The number of coaches was such that every player in high school and junior high could receive a firm foundation of football fundamentals. The Athletic Department also carried track ac tivities out on a large scale. Much time was spent teaching the trackmen good track habits. All boys who wanted to be on the track team were issued equipment and given individual coaching instructions. The Athletic Department feels that offering a place in sports for all will create better athletics in G. H. S. The exact success of the program sponsored this year cannot be tabulated wholly, but it is certain that the work, time, and effort put forth this year has developed into a sharp increase in sport participation. This added increase will never die due to the untiring efforts of our Athletic Department.

Practice started two weeks before school began, and after many hours of hard practice, it looked as though the Railroaders were going to have a strong team. Hopes of a good team were raised higher when the Railroaders shut out the Portland Panthers 24-0. The visitors never penetrated Railroader territory until late in the fourth quarter, while Garrett’s back field lugged the pigskin over the goal line four times. ' With a first game victory under their belts, all eyes were turned to a crucial game with a good Warsaw team. Garrett slapped a touch¬ down on the Tigers, but four injuries were taken advantage of by the visitors, and they romped to a 53-7 victory. Injuries seemed to be the G. H. S. football player’s lot for the second straight week when they were defeated at Decatur 21-6, but when they traveled to New Haven, rhe Railroaders defeated a good Bulldog team 18-14 for their first conference victory. Unorthodox plays had the New Haven players confused throughout the game. This victory boosted the morale of everyone to a large extent, but losses to Columbia City, Bluffton, Concordia, and Marion deflated Garrett’s hopes for a string of victories. The pre-game tension that always goes with the Auburn game was running high throughout Garrett. The two teams clashed on the Railroaders’ home field, and the Red Devils faced a determined bunch of Garrett gridmen. The final score was 13-0 for Auburn, but everyone agreed the Rail¬ roaders ended the season playing a good gante. Although the victories weren ' t as many as the defeats, the boys who were on the team gained many assets that could only be obtained on rhe football field. Many prom¬ ising underclassmen gained experience and poise. Others learned good sportsmanship, co-operation, and daily contact with other members of the team. A nine-game schedule was introduced this year for the first time. The team as a whole showed the kind of scrap, even in defeat, that marks a good team. Success is not always measured in the number of victories, but also in the amount of benefit the players realize. The players and fans hail the " never-say-die” spirit throughout the season.

Junior High Football This was rhe second straight year for the Junior High to be active in football. Under the leadership of Coach Harmon approximately thirty-five boys received a football background that will make them much better players when they try for varsity positions. These boys were taught fundamentals, but the experience gained through hard practice has developed a self-confidence which is one of the greatest assets in any sport. Because rhe participation in Jr. High football was strictly voluntary, the participants were those who were sincerely interested in football. By proper coaching this interest was used to train the boys practically the same way as they will be trained for the varsity. These thirty-five boys practiced the entire football season and played one game. In this game they defeated the freshmen 6 to 0, to climax their second successful season. Each boy received a letter for his participation, but the real award was in rhe coaching, added interest, and ability to get along with his teammates. These four awards will make football a better sport for Garrett in the years to come. The success of the team this year should convince all that Jr. High football is here to stay.

Mr. Dean had just two seniors to begin the season, but several underclassmen began to gain experience as the season moved along. The Railroaders started the season with a victory over the Ashley Aces but couldn’t seem to hit their stride for several games. They didn’t give up, but kept on plugging and gave many other ball clubs a scare be¬ fore the final gun sounded. This " never say die spirit’’ enabled the Railroaders to finally catch afire just after the county tour¬ ney. Their first victim of revenge was the Waterloo Wildcats who had pushed them out of the tourney with a three-point win. They easily tamed the Wildcats and in the same week knocked down the high-flying Columbia City Eagles. Three point losses to Fort Wayne Central Catholic and Concordia didn’t slow the Rail¬ roaders down when they met Avilla and Albion. They conquered both and fought Decatur, N.E.I.C. champs to an overtime. Hopes were high as sectional time rolled around, but inexperience led to a defeat by the Angola Hornets. Page 36 Larry Lantz Wayne Reed Lawrence Lantz Tom Leech This year’s basketball team can be con¬ sidered a success in several ways. The ex¬ perience gained by the underclassmen will help to develop stronger teams in the fu¬ ture. With only three seniors leaving the team, the prospects for next season look good. The will to win and the ability to never give up are two factors which carried the success of the team high. The boys who played on this year’s team can be proud of the things they learned that will help them while they are playing the big game—life. If they stick to the rules they have learned this year, they will win that all important game. t m i 1 1 1 Page 39 FRESHMAN TEAM Row 1: Danny Fuller, Ken¬ neth Severson, Richard Warn¬ er, Louis Easterday, Will Eastes.

Page 40 r A tull schedule of nine track meets and tlie leturn of ten lettermen set the scene for the ' 53 track program. The success of the team was de¬ veloped by each member of the squad because track is up to rhe individual. Many long hours of practice were spent by each individual to en¬ able him to further the success of the team. Mr. Capin was head coach this year, and he gave ex¬ cellent instructions for keeping each boy in tip¬ top shape. The Railroaders faced a tough sched¬ ule, but faced each encounter with poise and con¬ fidence which makes any team a good one.

Minniear Garrett is noted throughout Northern Indiana for its fine school system. This would not he so were it not for the fine and able leadership of our most capable Superintendent, Mr. E. V. Minniear. We are grateful to him for the many privileges we enjoy every day because of his efficient way of formulating and administering educational policies. Throughout every operation of school policy, the trusted leadership of Mr Minniear is plainly evident. Our schools owe him much for his constant guidance and rhe time and energy unselfishly giv¬ en to continue our rank in educational leadership. Principal Mr. John E. Flora Mr. John E. Flora, our highly esteem¬ ed and understanding principal, has been a true friend to the students of G. H. S. Mr. Flora takes a personal, as well as a business, interest in the school and student body. He always has time to spend with the students no matter how busy he is. His main concern has al¬ ways been student’s problems. The Student Council, which gives the students a voice in rhe school govern¬ ment, operates under the guidance of Mr. Flora. He acts as moderator at the meetings of the Council and helps the members settle their problems. Mr. Flora has helped students con¬ siderably in regard to vocational guid¬ ance. His advice, wisdom, and experi¬ ence are an invaluable source for all those seeking help. Page 44 Mr. D. L.

Corporation has just completed its first year of existence. It was formed in August, 1952, and has proved to be a great advancement to our school system. The responsibility of the school board is that of determining the policy of all schools in the district, seeing that it is carried out, and meeting its financial obligations. Since the organization is a completely new one, many new policies have been formed. In addition to changes already made, the Board has many plans for the future, not the least of which is the construction of a new grade-school building. While many may have reserved their opinions upon formation of rhe new corporation, everyone is now wholeheartedly in support of its objec¬ tives, and we are all looking forw ' ard to great advances in our school system during the next few years.

Senior History Foot-Prints Made by Seniors from 1949 to 1953 As freshmen the Class of “53” started its high school career with its best foot for¬ ward. We learned to co-operate and get along with our schoolmates and teachers. As sophomores we followed in the footsteps of the class of “52” and bought our class sweaters. They were green with white letters. Also as sophomores, we had a class party and for the entire school, a roller skating party. In our junior year we put on our working shoes to make money for the banquet and to carry over into our senior year. You could always see a junior at football and bas¬ ketball games, noon hours, and after school selling pop, ice cream, candy, and popcorn. ' We also donned our traveling shoes and made our trip to Chicago. We were the first class to take such a trip, and we will remember it always. Finally the big day arrived and on May 1 we donned our dancing shoes for the Junior-Senior Banquet and all-night festivities. As Seniors we came to the end of our high school years at G.H.S. It was a busy year with editing the Aeolian,, choosing name cards and announcements, having class pictures taken, presenting “Mister Co-ed” and preparing a picnic for the juniors. The Class of “53” will always treasure the friendship of the students and teachers and the education we have received at Garrett High School. Page 50 T li I , I SARAH ANDREWS . . . " sarah” . . .

" Mister Co-ed.” George Viets, a senior at Garrett High School, met an un¬ timely death resulting from a train accident, December 20, 1952, at Gary. He came from Willard, Ohio, to Garrett in his junior year. George was taking a commercial course and was planning to attend Indiana University next fall. During the time he was at Garrett High School, he partici¬ pated in many activities. George was very enthusiastic about journalism and the school paper. Other activities as a senior included singing in the boys’ quartette and the double quartette. George was a member of the 1953 Aeolian production staff. As a junior, George participated in many class projects. Among these were working in the concession stand at football and basketball games and helping with the junior-senior banquet. George will long be remembered by his classmates and teachers. . . . football concessions OFFICERS: . . . banquet plans being made Kay Cramer, Secretary; Barbara Busz, Treasurer; Tom Leech, President; David Ferguson, Vice-President. Junior Class Inspired members of this year s junior class, set out early to attain their goal — the best junior-senior banquet ever. Under the lights of the first football game, juniors got off to an am¬ bitious start. Never once during the season did the students in gold and black sweaters fail to meet the task at hand. The basketball season found them working even more fevorishly than before. Almost every junior set to work and carried cokes, ice cream and candy bars, potato chips and other refreshments during the many exciting games. Each took his turn selling concessions mornings before school, noons, and nights after school. Very successful after-game dances were sponsored also by these ever-active juniors. Then the great day arrived on May 1, the night of the banquet, the goal they had been striving for so long. Under the competent leadership of the president, Tom Leech; vice-president, Dave Ferguson; secretary, Kay Cramer; and treasurer, Barbara Busz, the juniors closed one of the most I successful, and truly one of the most memorable years in their life.
