Days, like pages of some great classic, were savored and turned, enriching the reader, and though impressions, recollections, mementos, and friends faces may fade, these memoirs will revive old visions— for this is the Remembrance of Things Past.

The Epic of Our few steps around the halls of GHS take us through many walks of school life. As the bell rings, a student dashes into the hall. He glances at a boy, smiling at the girl whom he favors in the q ueen contest. He hears the clatter of slam- ming lockers. He rambles on. A junior high boy whizzes past, anxious to sell his share in the annual magazine sale. Ignoring him, the student ' s Magazine sales for the 1958 campaign were han- dled by Meg Williams, Blue captain; Linda Harman, general manager; and Mary Haynes, Maroon captain. PTA QUEEN CANDIDATES.

Friendly greetings, flashing smiles, and banging lockers contri- buted to the atmosphere surrounding Garrett High during the year. an Era steps quicken. The smell of food from the cafeter- ia reaches him, but he forgets this as he nears his classroom. Maybe his thoughts are on a test- maybe on an assignment that will put him on or off the honor roll, his objective. Nevertheless, he enters, and takes his seat. The minutes pass--the bell rings. Again the student dashes into the hall and takes the few short steps of school life.

Mr. Bogardus fascinated assembly goer as he slung, slapped, massaged, and molded clay into realistic characters. Colonel Larson, an all-American cowboy, gave an outstanding assembly by displaying his ability to do tricks with six shooters. As is tradition, the band played at the Christmas program under Mr. Cole ' s direction and he led students in singing hymns. We ' re Entertained Assembly programs have always been antici- pated events and this year was no exception. Hilarious moments were enjoyed with Mr. Bogardus, the mudslinger, and Mr. MacKenzie as he experi- mented with the phenomenon, liquid oxygen. Mo- ments of inspiration were found during the Thanks- giving and Christmas programs. " Science Fun and Facts provided moments of spine-tingling sus- pense with the witty Mr. McLean. These programs are now enjoyable moments to remember. m : H 1 llF ! 1 i James Whitcomb Riley ' s Hoosier poems came to life at an assembly given by Prof. George Davis of Purdue. Seniors in the foreground, add another page to their final book of memories. Complete in pickaninny outfits and pigtails used in the Auburn Minstrel Show, the Teenettes entertain at the CTA dinner. Members of the group are Carole Johnson, Renee Obendorf, Mary Haynes, Suzanne Stroman, Charlene Lovette, Olivia Cleland, Deanna Dillon, Sally Kelham, Peggy Hunter, Eleanor Thurm Judith Tooman, and Linda Harman. We entertain GHS students have been entertained, not only by others, but by entertaining others. The Teen- ettes and Boys ' Vocal Ensemble gained popularity in singing for civic, school, and religious groups. The two combined their talents to provide music for the community sunrise service on Easter Sunday. The band held the spotlight during ball games as they gave performances for the occasion. Enter- taining others has left many entertaining moments to remember. The boom of the mighty bass and the schuffle of syncopated feet announce to enthusiastic football fans the arrival of the band for the half. The Boys ' Vocal Ensemble earnest- ly practiced its part of the Christma concert. Members of the group are Oston Roop, Robert Cattell, David Vanderbosch, Russell Rowe, Hans Heinzerling, Ronald Murphy, Edward Allen, Kenneth Flora, Robert Anderson, James Getts, and Gordon Holmes (not shown). Queen Nancy Shafer with Peggy Hunter and Judy Tooman, her court, reigned at the final victory dance by decree of Athletic Club members. A snake dance led fans to the Will Frank ' s grounds for a fiery rally before the Auburn football game. Coach Capin proudly displayed the N. E. I. C. football trophy as he carried it through the halis of G. H. S. Football (N. E. I. C.) champs leave the season-ending parade to begin dancing and eating on an evening of recognition by Garrett organ i zation s. Sessions Frenzy Fans Sch ool spirit was at its height during this year ' s successful season on the gridiron. Pep sessions gave the team support for the coming games and put the student body in an uproarious mood. The snake dance before the Auburn game stirred the spirit of the loyal fans. A party for the jubilant team and school fans climaxed the record-breaking season of gridiron action. Senior girls in the Pep Squad, preparing for the last basketball tournament at which they will yell, put up a sign in the west hall of the school building. For Frantic Victories As autumn turned into winter, the excitement of football turned into the " Hoosier Hysteria ' 1 , basketball. The roar of cheering students in pep- sessions became even more deafening during the games, as competition arose with the opponents ' cheering sections. Moments of frantic yelling were followed immediately by seconds of intense silence, as fans held their breaths in hopeful watching. Basketball fans have many moments of thrillpacked action to add to their hours of mem- ories. Presenting the Railroaders for 1958! The first basketball game of the season began with a formal introduction of the varsity squad. Mr. Hudson, host principal, awards the Holiday Tourney trophy to Garrett ' s Jake Maggert and Jim Getts, senior co-captains, as net-crowned champs. Garrett ' s Pep Squad begins an eye-catching routine that will con- fuse members, inspire players, and fortify cheering fans, in one of Garrett ' s eighteen victories. 10 2 3 The head table was the center attraction at ' Sunset on the Orient.

Junior- Senior Banquet On Friday evening, May 2, Juniors, Seniors, and faculty were entertained at " Sunset on the Orient. " The rickshaw parked in front of the ori- ental garden at the entrance to the auditorium was the first clue to the splendid decorations. In the auditorium, murals were painted to rep- resent Japanese gardens, temples, gods, land, and water scenes. Some of the main attractions in the auditorium were the sunset, the Buddha, and the wi shing wel I. Jimmy Stier ' s Orchestra provided the Japanese Doll Dance music. The Al Stile Review entertained with tap dancing and vocal music. After the banquet the Elks sponsored a square dance; the Gala Theatre provided a show; and the Eagles furnished a breakfast. Much pride was taken by these Japanese servers to find costumes. Here they look very content before they had to cater to the requests of the Jur their guests, the Seniors. The most long-awaited event of the day was the potluck supper held in the pavilion. Songs and laugh- Junior-Senior Picnic Warmly dressed students enjoyed themselves at the annual picnic at Pokagon State Park. Soft- ball, volleyball, and football were played while others watched the action and excitement of these games. Also, hikes were taken through the adventurous trails of the park. Jokes and wise- cracks were mingled with laughter throughout the day. Later, teachers and students feasted over the potluck meal served in the pavilion. As dusk descended, weary but happy, students headed for home. This is another event that will go on the list of memories of " the good ole ' school days. ter were heard while this hungry-looking bunch of juniors and seniors had to wait in line. If Mr. Capin could have abandoned his pet turtle for a while, the rest of the teachers would have liked to have a lively game of tennis. This action-packed Softball game was played by the junior and senior boys in the afternoon. These boys look as if they were really fighting hard in orde for their team to win. 11 " Oh, papo!

" The Play ' s the Thing " Senior Class Play " Where do you think you ' re taking that lamp, young man, " says Clint to George as Susan nervously watches the happenings. On April 9 and 10, the stage of the gymnasium was set for the Senior class play, " The Unguided Miss, " a three-act comedy presented by twelve cast members under the direction of Miss Schooley. " The Unguided Miss " is the story of a typical teen-age girl, Susan, who becomes convinced that her boyfriend, George, is more interested in cars than he is in her. Tumult really arises when Susan ' s parents bring an Italian exchange student to live with them. A series of amusing, but seri- ous, incidents provided the audience with fun and entertainment. 12 " So you stole a car, " states the judge, Hans Heinzerling, as Carlos and Susan listen while the probation officer, Olivia Cleland, keeps order.

The faculty and administration had hard-work- ing, but more or less, enjoyable hours in the 1958-1959 school year. The new members added to the school board in January were George Wade, who replaced Harry Heinzerling, and Gene Yarde, who replaced Harold Dannenburg. Meetings of the Classroom Teachers ' Associ- ation were held monthly. Two big dinner parties, in December and May, were attended by adminis- tration, school board, and faculty members with their wives and husbands. Current officers are Raymond Cole, president; Sarah Eldridge, secre- tary; and William Lake, treasurer. Four new teachers were added to the GHS faculty last September. Mrs. Pugsley came from Riverdale, Mr. Stackhouse previously taught speech in Riverdale, Miss Reba Stemem taught in Larwill, and Mr. Steward had just graduated from Ball State Teachers ' College. Several members of the faculty aTtended spe- cial conventions or were officers in a profession- al organization during the year. Raymond Cole and David Jones went to the I.S.T.A. convention. Hildreth Sweeney was CTA salary chairman for Garrett; Cale Hudson was president of the NEIC; and Ben Simpson was elected chairman of the Citizens ' Legislative Committee. 15 tfUU VLcJ i L.

Mary Morgan, Helen Opdyke, and Martha Reed are awaiting orders from Mrs. Miller. Cooks and Custodians Audrey Hotlis, head cook, and Helen Miller, supervisor, are deciding whether it is to be barbeques or chicken sandwiches.

This experiment will prove to them that light the workings of a camera, as explained by their student travels in a straight line. Science Wonder and Discover In a chemistry class, accuracy is the by-word. Use of the graduated cylinder and funnel help Dale Feick and Bob Cattell measure solutions to the milliliter. The dissection, examination, and written report on an animal is occupy- ing the minds of these freshmen. 22 A future winner of the Nobel Prize in science may be receiving his preparatory training amidst the shadows of Garrett High. This young scientist would take biology, chemistry, and physics. In biology he would collect insects, dissect a frog, worm, fish, and other animals to gain more knowledge about them. He would also learn why insects, animals, and plants are important to him. He would participate in many interesting and exciting episodes in chemistry. These episodes would take place while he is experimenting with all kinds of materials to determine their composi- tion and chang es which they undergo. To receive a knowledge of light, electricity, nuclear physics, mechanics, heat, and sound, he would take physics. This would help him under- stand what makes his automobile run, how a radio works, and many more things. First-year algebra students, Esther Warstler and Virginia Leech, traveled to Angola to participate in the Regional Algebra contest. One of the projects of the solid geometry class is the constructing of various geometric shapes and forms Math Like Virtue, its Own Reward " 3-2-1-0—The launching of a rocket into outer space was successful. " A future mathematician from Garrett may help in the launching of the first rocket to the moon. This student would receive his basic training in algebra, geometry, and trig- onometry in Garrett High School. In algebra he would learn that you can sub- tract four from three and obtain a minus one as an answer, multiply or divide a minus four by a minus two and procure a plus eight and a plus two, re- spectively, as answers. Proving two equals one by the use of algebra would seem impossible to him at first, but he would receive the knowledge to accomplish this feat in advanced algebra, a continuation of first- year algebra. " Prove it by geometry " would become his motto while taking plane geometry, a study of one- dimensional figures. He would prove postulates and theorems, and construct triangles, perpendic- ulars, and parallel lines, and different kinds of angles while studying plane geometry. In solid geometry he would study three dimen- sional figures. Cubes, pyramids, cylinders, and spheres would be constructed by him. His conclusive course in math in high school would be trigonometry. He would study the vari- ous uses of the right triangles.

Tachine, bench, Vocational Arts Have Skill, Will Profit Mechanical Drawing II provides much college preparation through the study and construction of architectural designs and blue prints. In the school kitchen girls pre para for the future by amassing Knowledge that may save a life. America ' s future farmers, homemakers, and industrial workers are given basic training in Vocational Arts in Garrett High School. Boys planning to pursue a career as farmers may take from one to four years of agriculture. Three years of homemaking are offered to girls who want a knowledge of good grooming, family living, cooking, sewing, and child care. A boy who is interested in becoming a skilled industrial worker can receive his preliminary training in an Industrial Arts course. This in- cludes four years of shop and two years of me- chanical drawing. During his last two years of shop he is trained in working with wood, plastic, electricity, metal in machine, bench, or foundry. 24 Coin collection, the most popular history project, seems far from this student ' s mind as he displays his own interest. History and Business Ed A variety of subjects is offered under the heading of Social Studies. They are geography, Indiana History, World History, U.S. History, and Civics and Economics. World History reviews all periods of civiliza- tion from prehistoric to modern. It is a required course for Academic students only. All students who graduate are required to take U.S. History. It teaches us the development of democracy. All seniors are enrolled in a semester each of government and economics. Learning to file income tax returns is one of the lost practical projects in the study of government. Living and Reliving Would you like to be a secretary or work in an office? If so, a business course is the one for you. Business Geography is the study of the main regions of co mmerce in the world, and Business Law associates us with laws of modern business. Bookkeeping explains the fundamentals of keeping a set of books. Two years of Typewriting and Shorthand offer final preparations for office work or business college. Fascinating rhythms pour out of room 19 every day as the furious fingers of frantic typists pound out their daily assignments. 25 Emphatic gestures are practiced in Mr. Stackhouse ' s speech class, the scene of oratory, debate, quips, and short addresses. Thomas Baldwin and Lorraine Tarlton, Latin I Students, and Susan Smith and Diane Miller, Latin II students, represented Garrett in the Regional Latin contest. English and Foreign Languages Quoth the student . . . Nevermore A mother-daughter combination of languages now offered in Garrett has combined the age old Latin with its modern counterpart, Spanish. Any student availing himself of the opportunity to study either or both of these languages will have a better understanding of the English vocabulary and its usage. The knowledge of a foreign langu- age will prove beneficial to businessman and world travelers and will improve international understanding. Through speech, journalism, literature, and grammar classes, the student learns to analyze carefully, to speak correctly, to think intelligent- ly, to read appreciatively, and to write coherent- ly. Such classes help open the door by which the student gains the knowledge necessary to prepare for a career, to better know himself and others, and to formulate his opinions and ideas. Members of the senior literature class discuss literary works as was once done in English Coffee Houses. 26 GHS art classes, in keeping with the yuletide sea- Making mobiles, lettering, and sketching are a few son, made ornaments and trimmed the tree in the library. of the varied projects of the art class. Music and Art Art for Art ' s Sake If anyone is artistically or musically inclined, he is given a chance to develop his talents while still in school. Art I is the first step in the art field. It is created to introduce the beginner and make him feel at home with the materials. Advanced art educates the student in special- izing in any field that may interest him. Band teaches students to play musical instru- ments; and also teaches co-ordination, and some of the finer qualities of music. The public appear- ances of the band makes it an important part of our school. Chorus is wonderful for those students who enjoy singing. While they are developing their vocal talents, they are also beginning to develop poise and self-confidence by appearing before the public in various programs and concerts.

But locals proved that fans had viewed a " diamond in the rough " against Goshen that became highly polished as the season progressed, winning the following eight games and going un- scored upon in the final five. Magician Capin, assisted by wizards, Don Steward and Ward Smith, added ingredients of speed, desire, power, and skill to a pot of con- ditioning, know-how, scouting, and psychology to brew a tempest that was called Garrett ' s best in 25 years. Th eir sorcery won the NEIC Conference Championship and ranked them 22nd in the state. The champions looked the part and won their success with finesse. A scoring punch in Holmes, Short, Culler, and Kobiela was conjured to accom- pany Garrett ' s traditional stonewall defense. Desire sparked a lightning attack on the ground and in the air to overpower opponents from the be- ginning of a contest as they scored up to three TD ' s in a first quarter and set a scoring record Varsity Cheerleaders Donna Dee Buckles, Jeri Snider, and Sandra Dickison, varsity cheer- leaders, fire up fans at a snake dance just before well-backed Railroaders beat Auburn in football. against Bluffton. Alertness for fumbles and pass interceptions was highlighted by lineman Stein - metz ' s scoring recoveries against New Haven and Kobiela ' s interceptions in the Concordia game. In their finest hour against Concordia, the Rail- roader ' s rousing goal-line stand and offense ex- emplified the style and thinking that impressed spectators and set records. No single player can be credited with the team ' s success; rather, each regular made invalu- able contributions as situations arose and were dispatched. Statistics and record books recount proficiency, but books don ' t remember defensive QB Feick ' s squad, who held some opponents to minus yardage, or a razmataz backfield, typified by Culler ' s run- ning and passing that rewarded linemen s efforts with flashing scores. Youth served up a delectible nine courser, with the fine red wine of Auburn ' s defeat drowning the memory of a tastless appetizer. 32 John Kobiela, senior, comes from wing-back on a 34, comes over to give another example of Garrett ' s wide end run to again outstep and outdistance the Baugo secondary for a long gain, as Dan Schumaker, superlative downfield blocking. Against Auburn, as against every opponent, our bench watched from the immediate sideline, whole- heartedly backing those playing. A serious Garrett squad listens to some final advice by Coaches Capin and Smith before beating Auburn. Seniors, playing their last game for GHS, lead the charging first eleven through the paper-covered goal post on their way to quench fiery Auburn in the final game of the season. 33 Row I: Bob Cattell, Carson Culler, Melvin Maggert, Bob Fee, Tom Burtch.

That ' s Our Cry Lacking exceptional speed, height, and exper- ience, Coach Ward Smith ' s Railroaders pulled de- sire, hard work, and strategy out of a hat and made the finest basketball record in the history of GHS --18- 2, had the school ' s longest winning streak- ten straight— and stretched the number of consecu- tive victories on the home floor to 34, making the five-year season home record 56-2. Jim Getts and Jake Maggert, seniors, were the only returning regulars. Six lettermen were back for this campaign, which opened with victory at home against Ashley. Garrett was on its way to the victory record, dropping tough veteran clubs, and winning the Holiday Tourney trophy for the fifth straight time with hot shooting and a fast break. After a nerve-calming upset by Bluffton, the single conference loss, locals began sailing over opposition and stayed on top until Busco capsized them, to leave the locals with a record that sweetened the bitterness of Butler ' s win over Garrett in the Sectional Tourney. The fast break and scoring that won games centered around Jake Maggert, guard, who led the NEIAC scoring with 152 points in six games, set a school season scoring record with 442 points, and was named to the all-conference team; and around Carson Culler, guard, Ron Beeber and Bill Knott, forwards, and Jim Getts, center, who dragged down rebounds and hit with the consis- tency that made winning a habit. Fellow players were the security that must back every quintet. Statistics verify the year and team ' s success. The memory of sparkling play, hot shooting, and exciting strategy will remain with players and fans. 34 THEY Nov. 11 Ashley 50 14 Huntertown 58 21 New Haven .... 54 26 Waterloo 49 28 C.

Tired Railroaders found strength to cut down nets and carry away the Holiday Tourney trophy after de- feating Angola to win the tourney for the 5th straight time.

Amazons Marcia Gingrich marks another name off the list of G.A.A. girls as the captains choose their teams. Those girls who were elected captains are Janet Hewitt, Marcia Gingrich, Susan Smith, Linda Mitchell, and Eleanor Thurman. A far cry from the usually thought of petite and domesticated female is found at Garrett High School under the heading of the Girls ' Athletic Association. Members of this organization are girls from grades 9 to 12 who can, and do, hold their own in the one time male-dominated field of athletics. First semester found the eager ladies engaged in furious combat known as volleyball, and during the second half of the school year the gymnasium was the scene of pandemonium as the " Mastered Misses " tried their luck with basketball. Aside from their regular muscle misery-making activities, they participated with other G.A.A. groups in sessions known as " Playdays. " During these times the senior mademoiselles demonstrat- ed their knowledge of modern dance, tumbling, and not so square square-dancing. G.A.A. Captain Janet Hewitt, extreme right, led her team through an undefeated season to take first place honors. 40 Jackie Gingrich bats one over the net as tean mates lend moral support in a typical gymnasium scene during the GAA volleyball. Volleyball captains draw gymnasium courts and opponents from Karen Shenk ' s hand to initiate anothe season-ending tourney. Captain Sue Wilmot, left fore- ground, is backed by her team after they beat Tooman ' s champs in the first tourney game and won the GAA volleyball tourney title. Another volleyball goes back where it came from with the help of Jeri Snider and fellow GAA netters. A ten-game winning streak and an undefeated season won the GAA volleyball championship for Senior Judy Tooman ' s team. 41 Members of the 1958 golf team were Tony Kolbe, Dick Rowe, Tom Beeber, Lynn Sebring, Bruce Nason, and Coach Paul Bateman. Golf Fore! ! ! In the fourth year of GHS golf, Garrett ' s team, coached by Mr. Bateman, experienced another successful season, winning eight, losing four, and tieing three. The local team placed second to Kendallville in the conference. Tony Kolbe was the only letterman on the 1958 team. Nason, Sebring, and Cleland are returning veterans and several newcomers should make 1959 worthy of the past record. The golf team begins practice in late March and works out every afternoon at the local course with Mr. Bateman. Team members furnish their own equipment, and the school furnishes the golf balls used in the meets. Transportation to the meets is supplied by Mr. Bateman.

AEOLIAN PRODUCTION STAFF Row I: Mary Haynes, Charlene Lovette, Judith Detrick, Connie Malcolm. Row II: Suzanne Stroman, Hans Heinzerling, Larry Leisure, Gordon Holmes, Eleanor Thurman. The 1959 Aeolian has been written for you in rememberance of things past by the Senior Class under the direction of Mrs. Sweeney. The dummy yearbook was completed before school started. Then, with school, the real work began. Pictures were taken; copy was written and rewritten in frantic efforts to meet deadlines. As it took shape, the Aeolian went from the dummy of mere lines to a book of vivid pictures and sparkling copy. This book is part of you. It has been written by you, for you, and with you in mind. This is your book—your Remembrance of Things Past. Maroon and Blue Staff Row I: Renee Obendorf, Charlene Lovette, Sandra Wilcoxson, Phyllis Boyd, Eleanor Thurman. Row II: Olivia Cleland, Dora Deihl, Nancy Shafer, Connie Mai colm, Peggy Hunter, David Vanderbosch, Hans Heinzerl ing. A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and deadline missed Searching for news, writing and rewriting stories, collecting ads, and frantically meeting deadlines has been the semi-weekly occupation of the hard-working members of the Maroon and Blue staff. Last fall around twenty cub reporters enthus- iastically tackled the jobs and problems which befall a school newspaper. One snowy day they turned Eskimo and washed cars; another time they became the sellers of Booster buttons, displaying versatile talents to earn the capital needed to continue their work. As the year continued, these amateur news- papermen gained knowledge and experience by constantly striving to fulfill a newspaper ' s duty-- to inform, instruct, and entertain. The Maroon and Blue was edited by advisor, Kenneth Richardson; feature editor, Hans Heinzerling; sports editor, Dave Vanderbosch; news editor, Eleanor Thurman; and co-editors, Dora Deihl and Olivia Cleland (seated), and fellow journalism students. Members of the journalism staff ready to collect advertising are Gordon Holmes, Ronald Conrad, John Kobiela, James Getts, James Helbert, Gail Ewert, Marcia Shreve, Mary Haynes, and Tina DePew. One of many versatile Blue Triangle programs is this one featuring original hat designs, modeled by their creators in competition for prizes. The geometry hat, holding geometric construction tools and designs, was judged to be the most clever. Blue Triangle Ready to serve . . . . Fellowship is the overall feeling of the Blue Triangle club. The freshmen and sophomore girls who make up this organization learn to live togeth- er, work together, and play together in harmony. This year the girls participated in many activ- ities. They sold cards at Christmas and held a Christmas program; they conducted a party for the members of the club and their mothers; and a spe- cial hat contest; and they sent the usual gifts to their adopted friend in Greece. The fellowship that the girls experience leads to the growth of ideals for personal and social liv- ing and helps them to strengthen their personal faith. Meetings are held on Mondays under the direc- tion of Miss Miller and Miss Eldridge. Freshman girls, without lipstick, wearing signs and clashing plaid and striped clothes, were often seen on their knees before attentive Sophomores dur- ing Blue Triangle initiation. 46 iLJ The roster of Blue Triangle officers for the ' 58- ' 59 club year is Vicki Sithen, president; Diane Miller, past devotional chairman; Susan Hipskind, new program chair- man; Meg Williams, secretary; Sherrill Terry, new devotional chair- man; Marcia Gingrich, past program chairman; Donna Buckles, song leader; Verneda Fields, treasurer; and Susan Smith, vice-president. Did you realize we had so many sets of twins in GHS? Actually, these are Blue Triangle girls competing for prizes in a twin contest, only one of the many stunts performed during the club ' s weekly meetings. In keeping with the Christmas spirit, the Blue Triangle presented the play " Christmas In Her Eyes for the combined Y-Teens, Blue Triangle clubs. Here the " hometown girls engage in a lively discussion about their old friends ' unspirited attitude toward Christmas. 47 Mongo Congo Bongo Bums, Dale Feick, Hans Heinzerling, and Danny Schumaker, entertain the Y- Teens with their renditions of popular tunes. Fashions from Hillbilly Haven vere featured as a program for an afternoon meeting of Y-Teens. Y-Teens Building a better world . . In a Y-Teen meeting, these girls presented a play in which they thought they were sitting in the office of a medical doctor, but the medical doctor turned out to be a tree surgeon. Girls of the Y-Teens are in unison whether they are working or singing. This year the Y-Teen members were active in several campaigns that added a touch of color to the school and money to their treasury. During the holiday season the girls made and sold corsages and pins, and several times the auditorium was the scene of mass confusion as students spent their lunch hour, and lunch money, buying the candy, cookies, and other delicacies sold by the girls. In a setting of snow flakes and sleighs, the Y-Teens and the Hi-Y presented the semi-formal Christmas dance, " Sleighride Serenade. " The " Foursome " filled the auditorium with music as couples danced the time away. Miss Schooley and Mrs. Roberts were the ad- visors for the Y-Teens. 48 The officers guiding the Y-Teen club during the year were Judy Tooman, song leader; Marcia Shreve, program chairman; Linda Harman, vice-president; Carolyn Ridenour, secretary; Linda Shilling, treasurer; Christine DePew, president; and Naomi Warstler, devotional chairman. Dave Vanderbosch and Peggy Hunter rode in the head sleigh as king and queen of " Sleighride Serenade " . Following them as their court rode Jim Helbert, Sandra Herendeen, Tom Burtch, and Susan Smith. " Pass the glue! " " Who took the sparkle? " These comments were frequently heard as the Y-Teens tackled the job of making Christmas pins as one of their money-making projects. 49 Row I: Mr. Jones, Richard Burtch, Charles McNall, Daniel Van Zile, James Kelham, Thomas Steinmetz, Glenn CI axton, Thomas Baldwin, David Helbert, Rick Kneisley, Douglas Grueder, Harold DeMint, Eric Bickel.

Giving Christian training to future members of the Hi-Y club is the mission of the Jr. Hi-Y. This organization is composed of freshmen and sophomore boys whose goal is to build char- acter and gain awareness of true Christian living. Jr. Hi-Y made its appearance at Garrett High in 1957. Since that time many gains have been made, spiritually and socially by its members.

After devotions and the minutes by Scott Simpson, chaplain, and Carson Culbr, secretary, the club ' s attention would turn to business discus- sions of a club-sponsored record hop, candy sale, or of finances from these money-making projects. Business was followed by film stips, speakers, debates, or panel discussions of current interest. Hi-Y co-operated with Y-Teens in sponsoring a semi-formal dance, " Sleighride Serenade , December 20. For the first time in years, live mus- ic by the " Foursome " , a dance combo, was fea- tured for the sixty-one couples. Patience and understanding marked adult advisors, Mr. Flora, Mr. Steward, and religious advisor, Rev. Myers, who lent an experienced hand in times of need. So went Hi-Y, " striving to maintain and ex- tend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character.

Chess Club Knights of the Board Years ago, in the countries surrounding Jerusalem, a game called chess became very pop- ular. This was not just a game, however; it was a contest that often settled disputes between nations. Whenever any trouble arose, the leaders of the in- volved countries would play a game of chess and the winner would be declared victorious in the dis- pute. Thus, there was no blood shed. This year chess was introduced at G. H. S. as a means of helping students to concentrate more fully and develop logical reasoning. The club is composed of twenty-eight students under the lead- ership of Reverend Peter Soudah, a native of Jerusalem. When the fundamental moves of the game were learned, a tournament was held. The victor of this engagement received a solid ivory chess set, val- ued at $150, presented by Electric Motors Corpora- tion. Jfc_«0 A 1 Derbies, Shirts, Senior Skirts—and NOISE Fall in—Begin " --these words were heard at the games as the cheerleaders and Pep Club led off with a new yell. The club, whose membership numbers about one hundred, displayed many new formations at the games. With their blue and white shirts, they spelled out various words. Their activities were many and varied as tourney time approached. Three evening meetings were held. During these meetings the club learned new yells and practiced the old ones. The week before the tourney, the school build- ing was divided into four sections with each class being assigned a section under the leadership of the Pep Clu b. On the walls of the hall and auditor- ium there appeared figures and names of members of the basketball team. Blue and white shirts, white felt " derbies " and white gloves were the attire of the club for the tourney. 53 Pep Squad Serving the Pep Squad as officers for the 58-59 basketball season are Eleanor Thurman, president; Adele Miller, secretary-treasurer, and Jackie Gingrich, vice-president.

One of the busiest groups on the Garrett High School scene this year was the Future Farmers of America, They undertook hectic but beneficial projects which helped the club members gain in knowledge and, at the same time, raise money. The boys began their active year with a pest control contest in which two teams, headed by Ray Burniston and Bill Knott, vied for honors in exterminating harmful insects and animals. Learning the fundamentals of Parliamentary Procedure became the next project for the group, and they received fourth place honors in the Par- liamentary Procedure Contest at Fort Wayne. Whenever the weather permitted, the young farmers went on field trips to various dairy farms, and participated in baseball and other sports on game days. The club ' s financial problems were well taken care of when the members sold candy and spon- sored a record hop. 54 Row I: Cynthia Sanderson, Kathy Slater, Janos Ratrie, Annetta Davis, June Harding.

Science Club A Successful Reaction As we observe Garrett High School through a giant microscope, we discover that a new sub- stance has been added. Looking closer we find this substance to be the Science Club. Affiliated with the Science Clubs of America, this organization makes it possible for students with an interest in science to get a better know- ledge of it and get experience in various aspects of that field. The club is divided into two levels; the high school group known as the " Concentrated Acid Eaters " , and the junior high, known as the " Dilute Acid Eaters " . Among their many activities this year were individual and group projects, field trips, and numerous experiments. The featured trip of the year was taken by members of the junior high on November 22, when they visited the Museum of Science and Industry at Chicago. 55 Row I: Chalmer Tuttle, William Carlin, Jerald Chisholm, Theodore Christlieb, Dean Young, Richard Reynolds, James Tharpe, Dennis Whittington.

With the Thanksgiving program the chorus opened another year of fun and harmony under the direction of Mrs. Flora. As usual, programs high- lighted the year for audiences and singers. Novel- ty songs, spirituals, minstrel numbers, ballads, popular music, and the favorite medleys from " My Fair Lady " , " Flower Drum Song " , and " South Pacific " by Rogers and Hammerstein, were presented in a Christmas program for PTA, the spring concert, and Baccelaurate. Special groups -- boys ' vocal ensemble, the senior quintet, Teenettes, junior girls ' ensemble, and Mary Haynes, soloist-- rounded out song fests and competed in contests. The Teenettes and the quintet entertained in out-of-school shows; the Teenettes took laurels when they sang in the Auburn Lions ' Minstrel show. Chorus members practiced singing and theory two periods a week. Special groups worked morn- ings, activity periods, and after school. To the singers, the time spent was enjoyable and added sparkle to an otherwise humdrum existence. " The music ' s not immortal, but the singers make it sweet.

For a warmup this artistic group marched at the Auburn Fair, taking fourth place. They then journeyed to Ball State Teachers ' College for Band Day; to the district twirling contest at Columbia City; and to the state twirling contest at Indianapolis. Sharon Claxton, drum majorette, twirled her way through the regional s and went on to state where she received first place, Class B, for a flag solo. Students and faculty were entertained by the " musical mights " at the Christmas program, and at the same time, sports lovers were being calmed by the melodious group at the games. The band filled the air with music at the Spring Concert, and the finale came with their participation in graduation-week exercises. 60 Row I: Sunny Dickison, Verneda Fields, Diane Miller.

Formed to serve the community and the school, the student council has made many contributions during the past year. A constitution was drawn up as a guide to future student councils; records were purchased for the noon recreation program; assembly programs were selected for the next school year; and a bul- letin board was erected in the south hall. Their main money-raising projects were the " Relaxession " , held during the holiday tourney, and the annual Aeolian Hop. Profits from these dances were used to purchase pins for members of the council and to finance council activities. The student council is under the guidance of Mr. Lake and Mr. Stackhouse. 62 CLASSES Judith Tooman and Robert Cattell Dora Deihl and Olivia Cleland Honor Students Suzanne Stroman, Charlene Lovette, Louise Fields Linda Shilling and Judith Derrick Senior Class Officers Seniors John Kobiela, vice president; Jim Getts, secretary; Hans Heinzerling, treasurer; and Dave Vanderbosch, president (seated), led the energetic group that was the class of ' 59. 64 EDWARD ALLEN Math., Science, Soc.

" Music, music, music. " Even the younger pupils of Garrett High are becoming victims of that symphonious sound of which the older idols have long been prisoners. This year the Junior High Band held their own in this land of adventure known as music. They marched by the side of their " big brothers " at the Auburn Fair; they participated in the money-making at the Kendallville basketball game; and they starred in a feature role at the Leo game. Jeanne Menges, twirler for this group, entered the district twirling contest at Columbia City and won first place in Group 3. Yes, the mysterious power of melody is every- where. You need only listen in our halls or gym to become its slave.
