I SIIENIMOIIR IIPQDSW Il'L'9 ill!
One fine spring morning about four years ago, Mr. Head Gardener
stepped out of his office in the School Board. Looking west, he noticed the
crowded nurseries and decided that it was time for transplanting, so he
set about to choose a site upon which to plant a young tree. After due
consideration he selected a spot where a newly transplanted tree might
obtain ample light and air, that wide expanse of land just west of
Belmont on Washington Street. He gave orders that the hole be dug and
that experienced gardeners be chosen. Finally everything was ready and
the sturdy sapling, George Washington High School, was planted. It had
been given every care as it had grown up in the nearby nursery, and now
was ready to begin its upward growth, expanding and developing each part
to make itself a tree of which the whole city might be proud.
The interested community watched daily while the sap of the school
spirit rose, quickening the plant and promoting growth in every part. The
feeder roots, the Civic Quest and Latin Club with their educational pro-
grams, and the support roots, the Girl Reserves, Camp Fire Girls, and the
Hi-Y Club, having outside interests yet supporting the school, set to work
to establish themselves firmly in the soil. They grew rapidly, extending far
and contributing food for growth.
The Student Body making up the trunk, which supports every part from
the largest bough to the tiniest twig, branched off into the various depart-
ments and organizations of the school. The Usher Club was a unit in itself,
yet by ramifications it extended into every other club.
As bark, the Surveyor and the Senior Post covered every activity of the
growing tree. Many companies of leaves made their appearance.
During the course of time, birds came to grace this tree. The Girls'
and Boys' Glee Clubs warbled every kind of song, while the modest Doves,
the Choir, lent beauty and dignity with their sweet voices. The young Ro-
bins, the Junior Orchestra, learned to trill their first notes after hearing
their elders, the Senior Orchestra. Along came the wind, as the wind usu-
ally does, in the person of the Band, and it, too, played through the leaves
and sent joyful music throughout the whole community.
After several years, an adventitious bud, the Stamp Club, developed.
Inspired by this, the aerial shoot, Aircraft Club, sprang forth.
Each year, beautiful blossoms burst forth, the Washingtonians and
Minute Men. Throughout the season they developed until the time ap-
proached for them to leave their means of sustenance. Out into the world
drifted the Graduates, the fruit of this glorious tree which shall ever con-
tinue to prosper and send forth fine fruit to make glad the hearts of the

A PEACEFUL SUNDAY
If we could have foreseen the disastrous events of that memorable trip
to Brown County, I am sure we would have stayed at home and eaten a
peaceful Sunday dinner. As it was, however, our branch of the family tree
set forth with light hearts in our noisy and rather dilapidated Junker
All went well until Mother insisted on a safe rate of speed, thirty-five
to forty miles an hour. Like most mothers, she is an ardent advocate of
moderation in speed, which is rather fortunate for pedestrians. Tut, the
above mentioned vehicle, emits somewhat doubtful and peculiar sounds when
she speeds over rough roads. These noises might be described as a cross
between an erupting volcano and a volley of machine gun bullets.
As I look back bitterly on that expedition, I must confess that the scen-
ery was all we expected -in the Way of hills. I particularly remember one
hill. After a sharp curve, we found ourselves shooting down what seemed
a small mountain, at the base of which a cemetery was most appropriate-
ly situated. - -
It was Mother's idea to spread our lunch just off a little by-road and eat
under the quiet and solitude of sheltering trees, or something like that. I
don't know how many "by roads" we explored, but I am sure' that many a
farmer's quiet and solitude was destroyed by Tut's noisy advent up his
privatedrive way. Indeed, I have often noticed the expression of amazement
and incredulity written on the faces of the unsuspecting country folk when
Tut streams by. Finally, in despair of ever finding the perfect lunching
place, we spread our table in what seemed to be a private orchard. We en-
joyed the food immensely until Mother became doubtful about the good
nature of an approaching farmer who carried a large rifle in arather men-
acing position. He didn't even notice us though, and Mother, greatly re-
lieved, peppered the radishes with great gusto.
After our frugal meal we decided to lounge about and read for a while.
This was a most advisable course it developed, for Mary had eaten a quart
of beets to get to the pickled egg at the bottom, and, as aresult, did not feel
as well as she might. Moreover, she was sulky because she was forbidden to
read the fifty-second installment of a love story she had brought.
Altogether, we were in a bad humor when we started for home, a con-
dition which wasn't improved any when Tut developed carburetor trouble
and refused to climb hills. Up to that time, Ihad been very well satisfied,
but I bitterly remarked that I didn't mind at all walking from the south-
ern part of the state to Indianapolis, but I did resent having to lug a ton
of boulders most of the way. You doubtless know the system. One per-
son gets out of the car, and places a large rock behind a rear wheel at

A FOREST FIRE .
Immediately after our arrival at Lake Sawyer in northern Wisconsin,
we unpacked and were just taking an inventory of the cabin when we noticed
smoke almost covering the southwestern part of the sky. A forest fire, which
supposedly had been put out by the rangers, had been blown into quite a
blaze by the strong wind. The campers, rushing from their cottages with
all sorts of strange things, jammed them into already overpacked auto-
mobiles. Little chipmunks came hurrying from their homes to run down to
the edge of the lake. A porcupine came lumbering along, and growling to
himself about the queer humans who got everything turned end for end,
halted by the water's edge.
I don't know whether they put on shows like that for all Hoosiers, but
itvcertainly was exciting. Finally, we, too, moved out for we had not the
slightest notion of what a forest fire would do. After we had placed the car
with our belongings on the road through the cultivated fields, my father
and I went back to see how the fire had progressed Without us. It seemed
to have done quite well, for the air was full of black eye-stinging smoke. The
sun seemed simply an orange,colored disk in the smoke. The whole scene
was flooded with fantastic light which made people take absurd, grotesque
shapes through our tear-filled eyes. The forest rangers stood along the road
with shovels to put out any sparks that might be blown across. One fire fighter
had a little hose affair that might have been effective in .putting out ciga-
rette lighters but nothing much bigger.
Climbing a hill to where I could see the forest fire as a whole, I watch-
ed the occasional pines in the .birch forest flare up suddenly in an extraor-
dinarily bright mass of flames. The flames gained momentum and swept to
the top of the old veteran of the forest. A bird's nest was somehow dislodged
and went streaming towards Mother Earth, in a self-made halo, for all the
world like a great meteor. Meanwhile the needles on the pine had burned
away and the tree now stood naked, its limbs pointing upwards, a ghastly
skeleton of its former self. And as far as the eye could see there appeared to
be trees with gnarled and leafless branches standing guard over the ashes
of departed comrades and relatives. Smoking logs bore mute evidence of the
recentness of the disaster. Only people who have lost their all in some bank
failure can appreciate how the squirrels felt as they saw their homes, their
food supply, and their tree friends burned in a fire caused by human care-
That night we came back to our cottages and smoke-filled rooms. How-
ever, even the excitement of the day and the smoke could not keep weary
lids apart. Soon everyone slept. -

THE OLD CIRCUS GROUNDS
Several years ago, a little girl in a starched gingham frock trotted ecstat-
ically along with her aunt, en route to the circus grounds. Having reached
their destination, they entered a huge white tent, from the top of which ban-
ners fluttered gaily in the breeze. Animal trainers were scurrying around
and small boys were watering the elephants. A barker, shouting and ges-
ticulating wildly, was exhorting the mob to see the big show. However, the
side shows were open, and beckoned the eager child to gaze upon theirmyster-
The snake charmer attracted her first. How fascinating it was to see
the reptile dance to the weird tune of its master's reed. Then she saw the
marvelous sword swallower. The way he slipped the gleaming silver down
his throat made a chill travel down her spine. After she had watched him
eat razor blades and needles for dessert, the small girl's attention was
drawn to the skeleton man. All of his vertebrae could easily be counted
and even his floating ribs were distinguished without difficulty. Whenever
he took a step, his bones clattered. Next, was the tatoo artist, whose body
was covered with hieroglyphics. -
Whisked along by her aunt, she now entered the main tent. The circus
started. Pausing only to buy some peanuts and an ice-cream sandwich, she
clambered to a seat near the center ring. The calliope shrieked, as she took
her place. Soon a bevy of clowns tumbled about the ring, shouting and
shooting. The little girl was so frightened by the noise of the guns that she
tried to crawl under the seat. '
The pompous ring master raised his hand, and a hush fell over the
assembly. After his announcement was finished, the way was cleared for
the stars, the trained seals. The tiny maiden gleefully watched them spin
bright balls in the air and heard them sing. When this act became rather
monotonous, she looked at another ring, where the trapeze performers were
daringly leaping through the air. She gasped with fear as one nearly fell.
When the big show was over, and the applause had faded, the people
crowded out into the sunlight.
Dubiously, the heroine of this tale sought the dimmed interior of a gyp-
sy's tent. The Romany seer phrophesied many great events which almost
overcame her with awe. The smoke of incense curled silently upward and
in the faint glow, the little girl listened to the mystic chant.
"It is several years from now. I see a little girl, clad in white broadcloth,
walking sedately to a high school on this very spot. Having entered hesi-
tatingly, she sees teachers traversing the corridors in a hurried manner. An
usher at the auditorium door is urging students to go in there. However,
unexplored regions appear more inviting to the girl and her companions.

A GENTLE LAVATION
'One of the most amusing and diverting sights I have ever witnessed is
that of my small brother washing his face before going to school. I say
before going to school because he never washes his face in the morning un-
less he does have to go. His method requires the least amount of soap and
water possible. First, he buttons up his shirt collar. This is done so that,
should the wash cloth slip on his neck, it would pass harmlessly over his
collar and not Cheaven forbidl get down to restricted territory on his neck.
When he is ready to begin the dreadful operation, he handles the soap as if
it were dynamite, the water, carbolic acid. Having managed to moisten the
wash cloth slightly and get a little soap on it, he screws his face into a knot
as he touches it lightly with the cloth. In Washing his eyes, he grimly closes
them and, with the cloth on one finger, makes a few gentle strokes. Eyes
still closed, he tenderly touches Whathe considers the important points of his
countenance-his forehead, nose, chin, and perhaps his cheeks. His ears are
included only on special days. When he opens his eyes, they look shadowy
like that of the refugee on a "Near East Relief" poster. What the wash cloth
didn't get, the towel tries to get, and what it misses, stays for another day.

A PEACEFUL SUNDAY

certain stages of the caris progress up the hill.
As I had repeated this operation for what seemed to be several hours, I
wanted something to eat and said so. As the others felt the same way, we
rummaged through the baskets. Our search was rewarded by finding an-
other quart of beets and a few cookies. I took the cookies, and offered Mary
the beetsg but, with a scornful look, she turned her back on me.
- It was growing dark by then, so I took up my rock and started dogged-
ly to work. The next hill wasn't so steep, and Ithought that we must surely
be to the paved road. But no such luck. We were confronted by a hill of such
appalling height that I felt like giving up. How we got over that, I don't
know. It wasn't until after we had nearly backed down over the side ofthe
road that we were miraculously saved by a bale of hay that chanced to have
been left in the way.
Such was our triumphal return to civilization, and I'd just as soon stay

LOVE AMONG THE KACHIQUELES
On the shores of the beautiful Lake Atitlan lives an almost extinct tribe
of Indians, the Kachiqueles. The Kachiqueles boys and girls marry so young
that a girl over twenty is considered old. The unmarried girls wear ribbons
around their heads to distinguish them from those who are married. This
ribbon means as much to them as an engagement ring. When a boy falls
in love with a girl, he does not propose, but he takes this ribbon from the
girl's head. If he succeeds in removing the ribbon, they are engaged.
However, this is not as easy as it may seem, especially when the girl does
not like him. To begin with, the boy has to stand for many hours every
day close to where the girl lives, and when ever she goes out for groceries
or to the fountain or river for water, he follows her. These Indians can run
very fast, so as soon as the girl is aware that she is pursued, she runs and
he must try to catch her. This will last several days, and both seem to en-
joy it very much. Sometimes they call each other names or laugh, at other
times, pretending that she dislikes him, the girl throws things at him, or
if she is close to the fountain, water. Finally she tires of it and allows him
to take the ribbon. In case she does not like him, she buys a new ribbon.
Now that they are engaged, the boy must be tested to see if he will be a
good husband. He must live with the girl's parents a year and work for
them, bringing in the wood and water, building up the fire and helping the
girl all he can. When the year is over and the parents of the girl think he
is a good worker and will be a good provider, they begin the preparations
for the wedding.
The wedding day is greatly celebrated. All the relatives and friends of
the bride and groom must be present. The bride prepares the big dinner,
the favorite dish being the "tayullos" boiled in water. Liquor is drunk by
all, but not until the ceremony is over. When everything is ready, they
form a line and the bride and groom lead the procession to the church.
After the ceremony, all come back to the girl's house. Now the girl must be
tested to see if she will be a good wife. Everybody stands around the girl
watching her as with her bare hands she takes the "tayullos" from the boil-
ing water, and serves them to the guests. While she is doing this she must
neither cry out, nor make a face, no matter how much she burns her hands.
The guests must know that she is not afraid of work. Now that all the "tay-
ullos" are served, the real celebration with its drinking, dancing, singing
and even the burning of fire works begins. The music consists of two instru-
ments, the "chirimis" Ca wood instrument resembling a piccolol and the
"tum" Cdrumsj. The celebration which lasts two or three days, ends with the
"midnight son", a dance in which the parents, grandparents, and great-
grandparents of the bride and groom take part.

My garden gives me greatest joy.
Most people think me silly
To slave to make the flowers bloom
And love the Tiger Lily.
My garden cups a wee fish pond.
Around it twine marsh marigoldsg
Like saffron stars they shine and seem
Such happiness to hold.
The musky-scented mallow stands
Against the fence in deepest shadeg
And patches of forget-me-nots
Whose memory will never fade.
My garden's just a common place.
No rarest plants are there.
But it is mineg I helped it grow -
In strength and beauty through my care.
THE OLD CIRCUS GROUNDS

"For some unknown reason, they wend their way to the biology room.
They marvel at the snakes and frogs, the bugs and butterflies. But the
little girl is especially fascinated by a reptile coiling his shining scales.-
"Suddenly a bell rings, and the students rush pell mell down seemingly
unending stairs to the cafeteria. There they pounce on plates, and grab silver-
ware. When they reach their tables, they ravenously devour the lunch, in
much the same way that the lions consume their daily portion of raw meat.
Before the lunch room is vacant again, some of the knives have disappeared.
One of the sword-swallower's grandchildren is in the crowd. Another bell
rings and the little girl goes to the physiology room. Charts of skeletons are
hanging on the walls. After she has thoroughly examined the bones, she de-
parts for the gymnasium. Acrobatically-inclined youngsters are jumping over
horses and bucks, instead of the bucking broncos their parents were accus-
tomed to ride.
"Others are playing basketball, while the assembly roots for them. After
the game is finished, rings are let down, and the skilled gymnasts perform."
Thus the seer spoke. Did she prophesy truly?

Once made and placed by careful hands,
Out on the snow-covered lawn he stands,
And as the sun shines day by day
He becomes smaller and smaller and melts away.
So it is with us people who may,
As We know, have only a limited stay,
We should be cheery and smile at our foes,
And make the best of all that comes and goes.
IMPRESSIONS OF A CONCERT
AS SEEN FROM THE BALCONY
The orchestra quickens and moves,
The colossal audience lulls
Like a flock of murmuring doves.
A whispering of strings,
First the overture starts
As the curtain quivers and parts
On the dwarfed figure of a man,
As he stands,
Violin in hand,
Ready to voyage to the land
Of the most perfect of beauty.
The house is tense,
The quiet dense,
Pouring out and up
From above and below
Come the notes, like drops of April
The silvery chords echo, are gone-to
And We hear the wind complain
In the pineg
The bird on the vine
Pours forth his song soft and flutey.
The instrument sobs and croons
And howls, like the dog at the moon.
The Artist swaysg
His bow bends and frays
As higher and higher the swell
Of tone, like the song of a bell
Pours forth in the darkened room
To be lost in the gloom.
'Tis the end. Then a pause-
A burst of applause-
A tribute to the master of beauty.

CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Just as the hands of the hall clock stood at the hour of midnight, a key
turned silently in the lock, and a heavy door was slowly pushed open. Into
the dark of the hall slipped a man. With quick, noisless, steps he passed
through the darkened rooms until he came to one farthest to the rear. En-
tering, he firmly but quietly closed the door behind him. He groped over
the walls for a button, and finding it, snapped on the lights.
After a hurried glance around the room, he pulled the blinds, and cross-
ing swiftly to the far side of the room, swung open the massive door of a
cabinet standing against the wall. Into its interior he thrust a hand. An ex-
pression of disappointment crossed his countanence. At that moment a
dull thud broke the silence as if some heavy body had fallen to the floor.
As he slowly withdrew his hand, he discovered that his fingers were stain-
ed with red. Shifting his glance from his hand to the floor of the cabinet,
his startled eyes beheld the source of the red stain. A silent form lay there.
A slowly increasing pool of red gathered about it. The man strove to turn
his eyes from the sight. Suddenly he jumped up from his crouching position
in front of the cabinet, as a woman arrayed in white entered the room.
Slowly the woman spoke, "John, what are you doing in the refrigera-
tor at this time of night, and how in the world did that bottle of catsup
get upset?" 4 f X -"5 F

He rushed madly back and forth cross th room, pulling first this
drawer out and then that one, throwing ents to the floor. Where
could it be? He wrung his hands nervously, perspiraton covered his face. He
looked wildy under the table and then turned despairingly away. How
could he be so careless! He knew that he would be held responsible. He sank
down into a chair only to spring up the next moment with a smile on his face.
Ha! He would fool them, at last he remembered. Hurriedly he dashed into the
next room and looked on a shelf. There it was! He seized the elusive brush
and began brushing the small particles of steel wool which had clung to
his R. O. T. C. belt when he had been polishing the metal on it.

Our first year in High School was entirely different from that of any other class in the
school's history. Everyone, teacher and student alike, was a freshman. Even the upper
classmen blundered into the wrong rooms or were likely to forget the location of the gym.
We were the only real Washingtonians enrolled. The class of '31 had no interest in any
school colors but purple and white, in any school song but "We're Loyal to You, Washing-
ton", in any football team but the Continentals. The upper classmen, however, had had
connections with Manual, Shortridge, or Tech. Instead of choosing our organizations, we of
'31 helped to create them. In place of being asked to join the Civic Quest or Science Club
we aided in writing their constitutions and shaping their programs.
Our first year passed uneventfully, as freshman years are wont to do, but in the soph-
omore year, six members of our class, Raymond Martin, Edward Hubbard, Harry Sanders,
Garland Burris, Worth Pullen, and Emil Unser, were on the football team, and one of them,
Emil Unser, was givena Purdue Alumni Award. Marion Ratcliff received her seventh John
Herron Art Institute Scholarship. -
- During the winter both boys and girls of our class played basketball. Of the girls,
Hazel Jones, Louise Kauffman, Mary Moorman, Ernestine Neal, Helen Peters, and Neva
Wright won awards. Marcella Beaman, Shirrell Richey, Maxine Hart, Eunice Vestal, Helen
Kunkel, Karl Stevens, Mary Rocap, Elizabeth Wimer, and Doris Poteet Wereon the Surveyor
staff. In the spring, Marshall Smith won third prize in his division in the State Latin Con-
test, while Virginia Miller won the discussion contest held at school.
On Honor Day,the class '31 was well represented. We had the following honor roll pupils:
Ray Allen, Corinne Gingery, Irene Gross, Nell Hollingsworth, Robert Jacobs, Helen Kunkel,
Jack Loudermilk, Hazel Jones, Bernice McPeek, Helen Marolt, Muriel Melvin, Ralph Mid-
daugh, Virginia Miller, Lillian Montenegro, Emma Perkins, Marshall Smith, Doris Poteet,
Emil Unser, Elizabeth Wimer, and Anna Wolf. As a special honor, Emil Unser, who with
Garland Burris had received a block "W", was given a placque by the George Washington
Club for being the most valuable man on the football team.
Then came our Junior year. Time passed quickly. Well represented on the football
team by Ralph Middaugh, Harry Oliver, Herbert Land, Raymond Martin, Worth Pullen,
Emil Unser, Frank Luzar, Garland Burris, Ishmael Lawlis, and 'Norman Parnell, we
followed the schedule with great interest. We considered it a great honor to have one of
the players, Emil Unser, as captain. At the State Fair, Washington won first prize for her
art exhibition which John Blankenship, Carl Yorger, Emil Unser, Doris Poteet, and Marion
Ratcliff had helped to prepare. Hazel Jones and Marion Ratcliff were awarded scholarships
to the John Herron Art Institute. Muriel Melvin and Virginia Miller were elected R. O. T.
C. sponsors. Karl Stevens, Harry Sanders, Shirrell Richey, Lawrence Leonard, and Donald
Baldwin received commissions while, Clarence Neilson was chosen drum major. In the play
given to mark the school's second birthday, Edward Hubbard, Louis Fullen, and Ray Allen,
had leading roles. Marcella Beaman, Helen Kunkel, and Marshall Smith, were on the Sur-
veyor staff. At Thanksgiving time, as Juniors, we sponsored a campaign for baskets for
needy families. We also shared in the, basketball honors and supported our classmates,
John Blankenship, Harry Sanders, Clarence Hogue, Harry Lewis, and Worth Pullen, loyal-
ly. 'In the state Latin contest, Marshall Smith and Virginia Miller received first prizes. We
starred in athletics, having Harry Lewis, John Blankenship, Garland Burris, Worth Pullen,
Raymond Martin, Ralph Middaugh, Ishmael Lawlis,and Herbert Land on the baseball team,
and Anthony Smith, Casper Cox, John Turk, John Erlick, Loren Duif, Frank Luzar, Paul

Football: Washington has always made a good record in football, but
this year the Continentals covered themselves with glory when they won
the School Board cup. Of the nine games played during the season, they
won seven, having been defeated in one and tying the other.
The Manual game, an overwhelming victory for us, the first ofthe city
series, was played at the dedication of our new athletic field. Shortridge
was a trifle harder to combat, but Washington pulled through with a score
We wrecked Technical's chances for the championship when we de-
feated them 14-0. T
Of the forty-eight boys who signed up for football, nineteen received
letters: Baumback, 'kBloemer, Carlstead, Dunbar, Eastwood, Haus, Hedge,
3"Land, iLawlis, "'Lewis, Long, lLuzar, McTarsney, iParnell, XPullen "'San-
ders, ,'Unser, 'fWade, and Warren.
Those chosen for the all-city team were Bloemer, Lawlis, Luzar, Pullen.
Basketball: The 1930-31 Varsity did not prove as successful as the foot-
Due to several handicaps, the Continentals won only four games. Many
of the others, however, were very close.
There were a number of underclassmen who will form the nucleus of a
strong team next year. From these boys, together with those who were on

The following boys played on the varsity team: 'fBlankenship, Bright,
Foudra.y, "'Hogue, Hedge, iLewis, xPullen, 'fSanders.
Track: The boys' track team had a fine turnout at the first meet.
Twenty-nine competed actively, out of the many who signed up. Seven
meets were scheduled for the season, besides the sectional and the Green,
castle relays. The track squad was composed of the following boys: Akins,
Bean, Benson, Cassell, Cherry, Cox, Dove, Duff, Erlick, Foudray, Harden,
Kemp,Lemen,Long,Mears, Mills, Minor, Otto, Pryor, Sartar, Smith, Stanich,
Thompson, Totten, Turk, Unser, Wade, Warren, Yovanovich.
The following boys made up the Top Ten of the track squad: Cox, Duff,
Foudray, Harden, Lemen, Long, Minor, Smith, Turk, Unser .
Girls' Basketball: The girls' basketball team won two games out of
the six played this season. They gained experience and a great deal of pleas-
ure from their trips to other schools.
Girls' Hockey: Nearly a score of girls went out for hockey, but only
one game was played. This was lost by one point to Shol tridge on their field.
The Washington team enjoyed the visit to Shortridge very much, and hope
to have more games next year.

Baseball: The baseball team got off to a flying start, without losing
the first five games. They had fine weather for playing, and for good, long
practices. Although a few Seniors will be lost through graduation, the team
has a splendid group of experienced players for the next season. Howard,
tl1e new pitcher, developed this year, gives promise of strength for -next year's
team. The scores were run up by the following boys: Baumback, Blanken-

THE FRENCH DOLL
The Christmas production this year was a musical drama. The opening
scene took place in the Mulvaney kitchen. The washerwoman, Dorothy Teepe,
and her six children, Jackson Livingston, Mildred Morrow, Lowell Seaton,
Virginia Tapp, La Dana Thompson, and Frank Zakrasek, led a very drab
existence until the two neighbor children Josephine Halbing and Karl
Stevens, moved next door. The mother of these two had to go to the hospital,
so they came to live with the Mulvaney's. Christmas did not seem a very
bright outlook to them. 'li
The climax came when the children attended a Christmas Eve service at a
wealthy church. The Freshm n Chorus took the part of congregation, the
choir gave the processiona ' e Glee Clubs were singing actors. This part
of the play was cleverly combined with some fine singing. Of course, there
was a happy ending with a serio-comic twist to the church scene.

Dancing, music, drama, and comedy were all combined in the presen-
tation of the Junior-Senior Vaudeville. Grim tragedy stalked in the "Word-
less Romance" which depicted the hopeless love that Dido lavished upon
Aeneas. Relief from the seriousness of this touching episode was supplied
by the clowning of the official jesters of the show, Harry Oliver and James
Doneifg The Wishy-Washy Washingtons provided musical comedy, singing
and dancing their way through a schoolroom scene, portraying the behavior
of students during the absence of the teacher. Dramatic interest was cen-
tered on the play, "The Medicine Shown, which pictured the laziness of two
typical small town loafers and a shiftless country doctor. A special added
attraction featured Madame Gargilis, mind-reader, who answered many
questions for members of the audience, concerning their personal problems.
A band of gypsy fortune-tellers, imported for the occasion, prophesied con-
cerning the whereabouts, after a period of ten years, of certain members
of the Class of '31, "Rhyme and Rhythm," a number featuring the chorines
of the school, rounded out the program. Music was furnished by the or-
chestra and the Dark Town Strutters.

Finally that long summer vacation ,came to an end, we were Seniors. We suddenly be-
came distinguished personages, at least in our own minds, privileged to wear Minute Men
and Washingtonians pins. In the girlsfclub, Eunice Vestal was elected president, Gladys
McMann, vice-president, Helen Kunkel, secretary, and Ruby,Brown, treasurer. The Minute Men
chose Marshall Smith,president, Lawrence Leonard, vice-president, Robert Jacobs, secretary,
and Emil Unser, treasurer. The first event of real importance, at least for the girls, was the
Parasol Parade,which preceded the dedication ofthe football field. Virginia Lascu was awarded
the prize for the most cleverly decorated parasol, Virginia Miller, for the most artistic, while
Pauline Clark and Corinne Gingery received honorable mention. Then came the freshman
party when each Washingtonian assuming all her senior dignity, showed these newcomers
the proper way for a high school girl to behave. All this time we were fretting because we
were still in our original session rooms. Finally, however, Senior Roll Room for '31 was or-
ganized. How proud we felt to saunter into 219 every day and nonchalantly take our seats
wearing our ,class colors, nile green and silver. At the election of class officers we went anti-
suffragist, and elected all boy officers. Emil Unser, was elected president, Harry Sanders,
vice-pre ident, Worth Pullen, secretary, Donald Baldwin, treasurer, and Casper Cox, ser-
Under the leadership of Captain Luzar, and with the help of other veteran seniors,
including Frank Bloemer, Worth Pullen, Ishmael Lawlis, Harry Lewis, Harry Oliver, Nor-
man Parnell, and Emil Unser, as well as underclassmen, Washington was awarded the City
Football' Championship. In addition to this, Frank Bloemer, Worth Pullen, Frank Luzar,
and Ishmael Lawlis, were given Purdue AlumniAwards. Robert Jacobs was chosen student
manager for the athletic department, and Louis Fullen was selected as one of our yell
Soon after the close of the football season, the senior jewelry arrived and we went,
around with our chests swelled out, or our hands extended so that all might see and ad'
mire. At Christmas time, the Washingtonians sponsored the annual Doll Contest. Of the
two hundred dolls donated, Virginia Roth solicited forty. Soon after the first of the year,
we had our Senior party, given in the school gym.
John Blankenship, Harry Lewis, Clarence Hogue, Worth Pullen, and Harry Sanders
were outstanding in the boys' basketball, while Hazel Jones, Catherine Hoover, and Helen
Peters did splendid work on the girls' team. Virginia Roth, Florence Dunbar, and Credella
Campbell were on the Surveyor staff.
At midyear the Class of '31 elected Harry Sanders, president, Worth Pullen,vice-pres-
ident, Helen Kunkel, secretary, George Mock, treasurer, and John Blankenship, sergeant-
at-arms. The Washingtonians' new president was Nell Hollingsworth, vice-president,
Pauline Townsend, secretary, Dorothy Schwab, and treasurer, Marguerite Kersey. Ray Allen
headed the Minute Men, Casper Cox was selected for vice-president, Shirrell Richey, secre-
tary, and Karl Stevens, treasurer. This last organization put on the annual Senior-Faculty

WHEN OUR PARENTS WERE YOUNG
What our parents did when they were young has always been some-
what of a mystery to me. It seems that whenever we wish to do anything
we are always met with the same remark, "I would never have thought of
doing that when I was young," or, "My parents would never have allowed
such a thing". No doubt their parents told them how goopl they were as
children. When we try to slight some task we're alwaysltold how prompt
they were to do their work. Fromfthese we must concludedalat our par-
ents were the most well-behaved children possible and that they were nev-
er allowed to do anything Cwe would like to doj. Probably they would
often worry about what they would do with their wings. It is a different
story, though, when we listen to a group of men talking. It is interesting
to hear of the tricks they played to get out of some slight task, or how
they would often come sneaking in late at night from a meeting of the
neighborhood gang. Perhaps you have listened to your grandfather tell
stories of his childhood. It's quite different from what our parents relate.
I read an article recently by a well known newspaper writer. He told
of how all the boys would gather at the old covered bridge Cwhat neighbor-
hood didn't have one then?D to watch the young men, out showing their
"best" girls good times in a buggy, drive through. It seemed that a young
man would drive for five miles just to go through it with his companion.
I don't know what the attraction of these bridges was, the writer didn't
say, but it tells a somewhat different story from that our parents told us.
I have come to the conclusion that we know and will know only what
our parents wish us to know of what they did when they were young.

basketball game, at which time the '31's fared no better than had the classes of '29 and '30.
All during this year our class has been outstanding in the Military department. Harry
Sanders was made major of the battalion, Lawrence Leonard, Shirrell Richey, and Karl
Stevens ranked as captains, and Ray Allen, Donald Baldwin, Louis Fullen, John Fidger,
Robert Jacobs, and Harold McHenry received lieutenancies. In the minstrel show "Axin
Father", Ervin Scott, Shirrell Richey, Marshall Smith, Harry Sanders, James Rankin, and
Eurgil Crawford had roles.
During the second semester, all of the final preparations for graduation were made. We
initiated the custom in the school by voting of wearing caps and gowns for graduation. We
decided to hold our commencement exercises at Cadle Tabernacle. Both the Junior-Senior
Vaudeville and the Senior play were presented.
Finally came the rush of graduation. Class Day was observed and the Senior party
given. On the Sunday before graduation our Baccalaureate sermon was delivered by Rev.
Stuart. And so came the climax-that which we had labored for, for twelve long years-
graduation. Our diplomas were presented by Paul C. Stetson, Superintendent of the Indi-
anapolis Schools, and the address was given by Dr. Frank D. Slutz, of Dayton, Ohio. At
last the time for us to bid farewell to our dear old Washington had arrived, and the period
through which we had come together was at an end. The history of the class of '31 was a
finished product, ready to be placed in the annnals of the school as the first class to spend
its four years of high school at George Washington High School.

SENIOR PLAYS I
The three one act plays, Bargains in Cathay, The Most Foolish Virgin,
and When the Horns Blow, presented by the senior class, afforded a great
variety in setting. The audience was taken from the hustle and bustle of a
thriving department store to the beautiful courtyard of a mythical palace,
and then brought back to a very modern studio in New York City.
In the first play, Emily Gray, a salesgirl in Williams' Department Store,
and Thompson Williams, a young poet and son of Emily's employer are
very much in love. Mr. Williams is deeply opposed to his son's writing, but
he agrees to help the boy in his work, if anyone in his right mind will buy
a copy of the poems. Emily, by expert salesmanship, sells three copies of
the book, one to Mr. Williams himself, and so the young couple receive the
The Most Foolish. Virgin tells the story of Zonula, a slave girl. Both
her mistress, Princess Mela, and another virgin, Valleria, are hoping to
become the bride of a young man coming to their country to select a wife.
When he comes to the palace, unexpectedly, he is welcomed only by the
slave girl. When the others learn of his arrival, they hasten to seek his
favor, but the bridegroom chooses Zonula because of her beauty and gen-
It is New Year's Eve, the time When the Horns Blow, and Julian, a
well-known but youthful artist, plans to celebrate ata party given in his
honor by Kay Norton, a vivacious young heiress. Before he leaves, Mary,
a winsome little dress designer from Julian's home town, visits his apart-
ment, intending to have supper with him. When he tells her of his engage-
ment for the evening she is deeply hurt and taunts him regarding the num-
ber of ladies in whom he is interested. In addition to Kay, he numbers among
his friends a noted Spanish diva, a very beautiful but dumb model, and an
excellent cook and housewife. After visualizing life with each of these,
however, he suddenly relizes that it is Mary that he loves, and, just as "the
horns blow", she consents to marry him.
The following students were included in the cast for these productions:
Marcella Beaman, Thelma Berry, Corinne Gingery, Maxine Hart, Edith
Herreman, Nell Hollingsworth, Helen Kunkel, Helen Marolt, Muriel Melvin,
Margaret Miles, Doris Poteet, Marion Riedel, Mary Rocap, Virginia Roth,
Mary Evelyn Rushton, Mildred Schuch, Evelyn Shroyer, Dorothy Teepe,
Anna Vielhaber, Ray Allen, Lloyd Forthoffer, Louis Fullen, Edward Hub-
bard, and Karl Stevens. The plays were directed by Mrs. Wright, and the
costumes and stage settings were designed by the art department under
thesupervisionof Miss Whitmire and Miss Failing. Mr. Stacy and Mr. Hard-
ing, as usual, were in charge of the lighting effects and stage properties.
