The hand that follows intellect can achieve.
HE HAND controlled by the mind
is responsible for the achievements
of the George Washington high school
during the seven years of its existence.
Therefore, We have used hands as the
motif for our yearbook. We have grouped
school activities with the departments
sponsoring them, and have tried to show
the progress which has been made and
to give an idea of the personality of our
school. With the hope that you will
like this record, the senior class of
1934 leave to you their review
of the past year

i CHOOLS exist in order that teachers may instruct
pupils. So far as the relation of pupil and teacher is
concerned no administration is required. When pupils
move from one teacher to another, a course of study makes
it easier for the teacher to find out what a pupil has
studied. When several teachers occupy the same building,
questions of schedule, assignment of pupils, promotion,
and the like arise. The school also must have relations
with the public from which it receives its support, its
patrons, and the approval of its program. It employs
workers and purchases equipment and supplies. These
problems call for the administrative staff. In this school
the administrative staff consists of the principal, who is responsible to the Super-
intendent of Schools, and through him, to the Board of School Commissioners, the
assistant principal, who acts in the principal's absence and who has direct oversight
of attendance, tardiness, and discipline, the dean of girls who supervises extra curricular
and social activities and does special problem work with both boys and girls, the chief
clerk and bookkeeper who is responsible for office routine and also handles all money
arising from the school's activities, the attendance clerk and registrar who keeps student
records, and an assistant clerk and stenographer who acts as counter attendant, answers
telephone calls, receives mail, and does stenographic work.
During the seven years of the sc-hool's existence, the enrollment has grown from
eight-hundred and sixty-three pupils to over two thousand, the number of teachers from
thirty-six to sixty-five. The present building is seriously over-crowded and the need for
building relief is imperative. Courses designed to meet all the important needs of pupils
from this community have been incorporated in the curriculum. This school has become
a community high school with a cosmopolitan curriculm. It has been granted a first
class continuous commission from the Indiana State Department of Public Instruction
and is on the accredited list of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary
Schools. Both ratings are the highest awarded by the standardizing agencies mentioned.
The policy of the school is to so organize its work that it will give to each pupil
the greatest return for the time spent in school whether he remain to graduate or with-
draw at an earlier date. To that end, pupils are given the largest amount of freedom
of choice and self direction compatible with their ability to assume responsibility for
their actions. This freedom and responsibility are gradually increased as the pupils
advance with the hope that on completion of the high school course they may be able
to assume in society the positions of young men and young women capable of self
direction and independant action.
All the great fields of human interest are represented in courses offered in the
school. Exact studies represented by the languages, science, and mathematics train in
accuracy, and in rigorous thinking in addition to opening the doors to a vast dicipline in
intellectual achievement. Music, the arts, and literature are presented both from th?
standpoint of appreciation of the accomplishment of others who have excelled and from
that of the novice who needs oppo1'tunity for creative endeavor either to discover or
cultivate latent talent. History and social science offer an understanding of man's past
attempt at the solution of' his great problems together with a modern interpretation of
the application of their principles to present day citizenship. Commercial and industrial
arts courses are designed to combine familiarity with fundamental skills and processes
with an appreciation of the value and significance of the products of industry. Physical
training, health courses, and athletics aim at the development and preservation of
physical vigor, coordination and efficiency, and the f'ormat'on cf attitudes of sportsman-
ship toward the difficult problems of life.

ICTURES of the Canterbury Pilgrims, Sir Francis
Drake, Ann Hathaway's cottage, scenes from the le-
gends of King Arthur, and a poster advertising atrip
to Ireland-all these decorating our Walls convince us that
even a required subject can be interesting. English is one
that is. Three years of it are required for graduation, but
this is not such a heavy sentence as it seems, for the
courses are largely what the Mock Turtle called "reeling
and writhingf' Technical work alternates with literatureg
and the necessary drills in grammar are followed by plea-
sant and proiitable books.
The chief purpose of studying English is to gain
skill in speaking and writing, and to become acquainted with the masterpieces of
literature. The historical development of the language and the correct present day
usage are studied, of course, the latter includes some emphasis on parts of speech and
punctuation, the structure of sentences, paragraphs, and themes. During the time
devoted to literature, the classics and modern prose and poetry are studied. For the
students who have completed the required three years, there are a number of inter-
esting electives. These are courses which deal with specific or specialized parts of the
preceding required units. The electives are advanced grammar and composition, the
history of English literature, and journalistic composition.
One of the most valuable courses given in high school is speech. The purpose of
the course is to teach the student to express ideas, improve the quality of the voice,
and develop the body as an agent of expression by gaining poise and self-control before
an audience. Fundamentals taught in speech classes are phonetics, expressive reading,
and speaking in groups. Speech prepares a pupil for public speaking, reading, and
Delightful plays are given at Christmas time and the senior plays in May. ln
this way the students of speech and dramatics have a chance to try out what they have
learned. On several occasions, the speaking choir, a unique group, have given programs
at school and elsewhere.
The Christmas play this year was The Light upon the Way, the story of
Christ's return to earth.
The senior play was The Cradle Song, a beautiful story of mother love, written
by a modern Spanish dramatist, Martinez Sierra.
Another elective course in the English department is the class in journalistic
composition. Here the student becomes familiar with the technical terms used in jour-
nalism, and learns to write various types of articles. The Surveyor is the product of
this class. Writing for publication affords an opportunity for actual experience in apply-
ing the principles studied in composition work. It is a real incentive to a student to see
his own ideas in print, and he realizes the value of studying grammar and of increasing
" HAT big antennae you have!" exclaimed a new student
in the science department. It was later revealed that
he was not telling the story of' Little Red Riding Hood,
with variations, but was really shocked by the immensity of
the feelers of a monarch butterfly lying under a micro-
scope. Such fascinating things one sees in this department!
Huge wasps' nests with their groups of accurately built
cells, beautiful colored plates of various birds, silk worms
dining on mulberry leaves, and even a palm tree shading
The science courses are among the most interesting
and profitable in the whole curriculumg furthermore they
seem to be very popular, for over one-third of the total number of students enrolled
are taking advantage of them. The department has equipment which makes it possible
to perform many interesting experiments that greatly add to the enjoyment of the
courses. General science is offered for freshman only, with the idea of preparing them
for the more advanced courses. In it experiments embodying the fundamentals of all
the science offered in the school are given. Students of biology grow and study bacteria
and moulds, as well as make insect collections. The botany classes study plant life in
the laboratory and on field trips. They use microscopes to study the structure of portions
of plants. The physics students, besides performing their regular experiments, are
devising a public address system for use in the school. The system, which has been
successfully used in other schools, makes it possible for the daily bulletin to be broad-
cast by the principal instead of being printed.
The Science Club is an organization which promotes interest in the science
courses. Its program includes many worthwhile lectures and demonstrations by members
of the department, students, officials of public utilities, and persons engaged in some
type of scientific work. There is no special sponsor for the club. Each teacher in the
department is given two meetings to preside over. The officers of the club are: Robert
Hoff, presidentg Kent Parks, vice-presidentg Doris Meyer, secretaryg and Thomas
NO, THOSE figures in the mathematics room aren't
diagrams of the wheels of industry, the city of the
future, or the nervous system, they are merely figures
showing in a decorative way the fundamental facts of the
science. An innovation in school room decoration which has
attracted much interest is being carried out by the math-
ematics department. On the walls above the blackboards
are graphic descriptions of some of the higher mathemat-
ical functions, representations of various trigonometric
figures, and a chronological list of eminent mathematicians.
These decorations were desigened by the mathematics
department, drawn by the mechanical drawing classes,
and painted by the art students. The courses in this department prepare a student for
college and provide the foundation for engineering and the sciences. Work in math-
ematics is not only valuable as preparation for advanced study, but gives training for
certain vocations, broadens the mind, and develops reasoning power.
The mathematics department offers ten different courses in six of which depart-
mental tests are given each semester. Awards for first and second place determined by
competitive examinations are given to the outstanding students in these courses. Plans
are made to organize a Math club either this semester or next.

through the transoms of the rooms dedicated to the
study of foreign languages. How delightful it is to be able
to translate a foreign phrase encountered in one's reading
and not to make the faux pas of landing from shipboard
on terra cotta. The study of foreign languages helps a
student to understand the grammar and vocabulary of
English. Students acquire also a knowledge of the history,
literature, and customs of other countries. It is hoped that
the students may acquire a reading knowledge and the
ability to speak the language, if only in a limited Way.
To give the student a sympathetic understanding of the people whose language we
study is the aim of the courses in this department. This is a very definite training for
In order to become acquainted with the best German literature, songs, amuse-
ments, and general culture, a German club was formed. Among many interesting
programs, one of the best was a motion picture and a lecture given by Mrs. Albert
Metzger, who recently toured Germany. Officers of the club are as follows: Mary
Liebenderfer, presidcntg Matilda Sparenblek, vice-presidentg Betty Sullivan, secretaryg
and Valentina Stroy, treasurer.
The Latin Club is open to all students studying Latin. Heretofore speakers from
the outside have addressed the club, but this year the club has been depending upon the
talent of various members for interesting programs. At a recent meeting Senore
Mysteryio, famous history-turner-backer, tuned in on station P-A-S-T and the club was
entertained by Caesar and Marcus Tullius Cicero. Once every term, a party is given
for the members. The officers are as follows: Evelynne Lewis, presidentg Elmer Koch,
vice presidentg Doris White, secretaryg and Hyden Rahm, treasurer.
Le Cercle Francais was organized in 1932 in order to stimulate interest in the
language and history of France. The club meets once a month and closes the year with
a party. Part of each meeting is conducted in French, such as the reading of the minutes,
but the business part is in English.
At the April meeting, the French club entertained the Washingtonians. A tea
was given for Miss Elizabeth Renard, the guest speaker. In February, the club held
a Valentine party, at which French games were played, and French songs were sung.
All students who are studying French or who have studied French in the past are
eligible for membership in the club. Officers are: Lucy May Powell, presidentg Nina
Brittain, vice-president, Ruth Fletemeyer, secretary and treasurer.
USSIA chose a five year plan to build up her country,
but the social science department of George Wash-
ington high school is able in a four year plan to
offer a sound basis for good citizenship. In this department
seventeen subjects are offered, which range from general
courses such as social studies to the more specialized ones
of economics and sociology. With the present tendency
towards effective group action and emphasis on the social
unit rather than on the individual, such courses are timely.
Many people contend that the present adult gen-
eration is unable to solve the economic and social prob-
lems of today and that the youth of the country will have
it to do. There seems to be much truth in this contention, but it places a great respon-
sibility upon the coming generation. It definitely means that more young people should
take a deeper interest in courses that deal particularly with our present social and
economic order. Sociology and economics give us a general idea of how our social and
economic problems have evolved and how they should be conducted in the future.
Sociology deals especially with society-social groups and institutions-while econ-
omics is a social science dealing with Public finance, production, and consumption.
The subjects in this department are broad in scope and varied in interest. The
first study on the list is social problems, a one-semester, haH-credit course for fresh-
men. The purpose of this study is to orient the beginner and aid him to map his future
school program. Social Studies I and II are also freshman courses and give the pupil
a knowledge of group and occupational life. World history may be chosen by students
who desire a brief survey of world events. This offers a fascinating preview of the whole
field. European history is especially recommended for students majoring in history,
for it gives a detailed account of world events and leads up to a study of the history
of the United States, a required subject.
In the fall semester of each year economics, English government, and Indiana
history are offered to upper classmen. During the spring semester, sociology, American
government, and recent European government are taught. These special studies are
open to seniors and postgraduates because such subjects are more difiicult, and a good
background of history is necessary to understand them. English government, however,
is open to juniors, seniors, and postgraduates.
There are two club afliliated with the Social Science department, the Civic
Quest Club, and the Stamp Club. One way to keep up with the world is to join the Civic
Quest Club, the little congress of' George Washington high school. Not many world
events are missed by this group and every report given is one worth hearing. Besides
student speakers, distinguished guests have addressed the club. Members forgot their
serious side at the Chirstmas party. The initiation was a stiff test on the American
government. At the next to the last meeting the new ofiicers were installed.

THE HOBBY of all hobbies seems to be stamp collecting. The recently organized
Stamp Club can prove this by the widened interest in the collection and discussion
of stamps of the world. Besides being a pastime for leisure hours, it gives one a greater
knowledge of the world socially as well as geographically. At each meeting various
stamps are placed on display and their histories discussed. Through these meetings
members find it easier to exchange and bargain.
One of the rarest stamps owned by a Washington student is a Japanese stamp
which is claimed to be the largest one in the world. Another is a Japanese tuberculosis
stamp. Old coins are also introduced and displayed at various times. All in all, stamp
collecting is an interesting and useful way to spend spare moments.

TAP-tap-tap-whir-r-r-r-is it a gym class or the shops?
Guess again. That's it-the commercial department.
Earnest students bend over their typewriters pecking
away to the tune of the Victrola. And in the corridor the
comptometer machines are more popular than Thompkins's
on a hot day. In this department students are trained to
be eihcient office workers by studying shorthand, typing,
business organization, and bookkeeping. The class in office
practice turns out neat and accurate tests and lists and
innumerable cards for other departments and roll rooms.
All of the work in the commercial department is practical
and exceedingly useful.

THE ART DEPARTMENT ofers continuous double per-
iod courses in art throughout the four years of high
school. In addition, one-period classes in show card and art
appreciation are included. However, as our school has de-
veloped, the demand for special courses in commercial
art, stage craft, and costume design has grown. It is hoped
that these may be included soon.
The work in the general courses from Art I through
Art IV meets the needs of students whether having special
art ability or not. It is planned to give a wide range of
work in various mediums providing a continuous release
of creative powerg to familiarize the students with the best
products of the past and present, and to develop an appreciation and power of discrim-
ination involved in the various fields of observation and selection in everyday life. Art
V through VIII continues this plan, but also gives an opportunity for the development
of those especially interested in the subject for a future vocation. The art department
also has sponsored several exhibits this year.
The students interested in furthering art interests outside of classes formed the
Art Club. The members are recognized by a symbol of art, a tiny gold palette with
stones representing colors. The club members have taken trips to see several exhibits.
During the year Mrs. Walter Mitchel gave a talk on ceramics. At Christmas, the club
contributed cheer to the sick and crippled children at the Riley Hospital by creating
miniature decorative fiowers made from scraps of colored paper, tooth picks, and corks
to be used on trays. The Art Club was sponsored by Miss Whitmire this year. Officers
for the first semester were Janet Ernst, president, Harvey Slaughter, vice presidentg
Beatrice Wright, secretary, and Cleatis Wright, treasurer. The officers for the second
semester were Harvey Slaughter, president, Emery Creekbaum, vice presidentg Cecelia
George, secretaryg and Beatrice Wright, treasurer.
l WHEN OUR boys graduate after a four years' course
in the shops, no one is better qualified than they to
step into a job in the industrial world. The increasing num-
ber of enrollments shows that the four practical arts are
rapidly growing in popularity.
Mechanical drawing is a highly skilled art that
requires mathematical exactness in the production of con-
struction plans and blueprints. Plans for everything from
doll houses to two story structures are made here by the
boys. In fact, they have undertaken to furnish plans for a
home for one of our teachers.
Metal work is a four semester course consisting of
three main divisions: sheet metal, forging, foundry, and machine shop. Sheet metal
and forging are covered the iirst semesterg the second, foundry and bench machine shop.
Lathe work is learned the third semesterg and the fourth covers milling machine, shap-
er, and advanced machine work.
In the Woodshop the boys do miraculous things with rough pieces of lumber.
From lathe and turning equipment countless numbers of articles are turned out which
rival in workmanship the best that commercial manufacturers can put on the market.
Wood Shop IV has accepted a contract from the commercial department to make fifteen
The printshop is of great service to the school because all the forms used in the
school, the school paper, and the school annual are printed here by the boys who at the
same time get their necessary training. A linotype course is one of the features in
printing. This course teaches the modern methods of rapid typesetting employed by all
large printing concerns today. Most of the boys who elect four years of printing con-
tinue in the printing business. The school may well be proud of the fine work turned
out by all the classes in industrial arts.

THE AIRCRAFT CLUB, which meets weekly on Friday after school, was organized in
1931. The purpose of the club, to stimulate an interest in aviation and its possi-
bilities, has been furthered by studying new types of planes, theories of flying, and
statistics of fiight, and by building model planes. These models have won a number of
competitive prizes in Indianapolis.

BATTER UP! First down-er-I mean Swan's Down. No,
this isn't an athletic contest. It's the boys' home
economics class. This year not only the girls are being
taught to cook and set the table, but the boys also have a
class in cooking. Rolls, pies, and cakes made by these future
chefs have been sold to appreciative customers. We under-
stand that the boys are earnest and enthusiastic, and very
energetic about scrubbing up. Caps and aprons give them
a trig and nifty appearance. Of course, there are classes
in foods for the girls also, in which they learn not only how
to cook and serve meals but how to plan menus for a lim-
ited budget. As a part of the course, the girls serve lunch-
eons for some of the teachers, the men's club, and the oliicers of the parent-teacher
association. In the clothing classes, matters of color harmony and design are studied
besides the practical problems of cutting and making all sorts of garments. This ye ir a
number of garments were made for the Red Cross also. Costumes for the speaking
choir and the plays, and the curtain for the new picture of George Wallington were
made by this department.
USIC FOR EVERY CHILD, and every child for
music .... " Although some students might resent
being called children, this motto of the national
music supervisors accurately expresses the aim of our
music department, as it gives everyone an opportunity to
play or sing.
The department is divided into an instrumental and
a choral section. The primary purpose of the instrumental
division is to teach pupils to play wind and string instru-
ments. Through these classes, the Junior Orchestra and
band are organized. The more advanced students are admit-
ted to the Senior Orchestra, which provides music for
school entertainments and organizations. Gold pins are awarded to those who complete
four consecutive semesters in the orchestra.
A newly organized orchestra provides novel entertainment for scholarship dances,
junior vaudeville, and the gym exhibition. Another group consists of a girls' violin
quartet with piano accompanist. They played for luncheons and teas, thus acquainting
"outsiders" With Washington high school's music department.
The Freshman Chorus, made up of four groups of freshmen, gives those
interested in singing an opportunity to display their ability immediately upon entering
school. This method has brought to light some very good talent which would not other-
wise have been discovered. The next step from the Freshman Chorus is the choir, which
features religious selections and anthems. Besides singing at convocations, it furnishes
music for the Baccalaureate exercises.
The Colonial Chorus consists of the Glee Clubs and is the representative choral
organization of Washington. Only advanced students in vocal music are eligible to enter
this group. The chorus, besides appearing on programs here, provides music for
churches and schools. Awards similar to those given to the Senior Orchestra members
are given those who complete four consecutive semesters of work.
Other courses offered are harmony, voice, and appreciation. The advanced har-
mony class Wrote a new pep song for the school and an aria for the senior play.
Students of the classes are taught composition of vocal and instrumental music. The
voice class is for those interested in further vocal study. In this class individual instruc-
tion is given and several first class singers have been discovered. In the music appreci-
ation class, the students learn about famous composers and study the masterpieces of
music. Our music department is a credit to the school and an excellent advertisement
of the fine work done here.

The primary purpose of the Washington Rifles is to aid the government and the
Red Cross in time of need. To be a member of the club the candidate must be a military
student with a grade average of HB".
The Drill team was composed of those students who were exceptionally fine in
their manual of arms. They competed with the other schools and the companies among
themselves. The team was unexcelled in the annual inspection.

Looking at the year's program of the senior band, we feel that band music does
not lack popularity. The band performed for football and basketball games, convocations,
the annual inspection, city parades, concerts, and the all-city music festival.
Awards of gold pins were given to senior members, awards of silver pins to
juniors. The unit was captained by Alvin Spanglerg Albert Terhune, and Willis Stearns

I HEADQUARTERS, R. 0. T. C.
G6 HE MISSION of the R. O. T. C. is to awaken in the
student an appreciation of the obligations of citi-
zenship, to prepare him to discharge his duties as
a citizen, and to qualify him as a military leader. This is
a tremendous undertaking and the R. O. T. C. acquits
The inculcation of the principles and obligations of
citizenship probably receives more attention than any other
phase of the R. O. T. C.'s instruction.
I do not believe that there is any young American, of
age sufficient to be a member of an R. O. T. C. unit, but is
beginning to think in terms of 'just what is American citizenship?
The R. O. T. C. answers this question. Many people are under the impression that
the R. O. T. C. deals with a citizen's duties only in event of a national emergency.
Nothing could be more erroneous than this.
Citizenship, as analyzed in the R. O. T. C., resolves itself into a study of the
duties of the ordinary citizen in time of peace.
If our system is to collapse and decline, it is the disregard of these common-
place obligations which will precipitate the fall.
R. O. T. C. concerns itself with disciplineg and what more is discipline than a phil-
osophy of life? Any young man about to leave school with the thought that all criticism
is censure, and respect and obedience to superiors, servility, will not find himself helped
by such an attitude.
It is shocking when one becomes aware that this is the attitude of some of our
young men toward our American prerogative. Much of this can be traced to a mis-
conception of what Americanism really is.
If everyone understood that laws were made for the protection of the majority,
there would be less difficulty in enforcing the lawg and there is no organization wherein
one becomes so thoroughly aware of the rights of others as in an R. O. T. C-. unit. Drill
exacts the highest type of teamwork. The fact that the standing of the unit is dependent
upon the conduct of each individual strengthens all.
In the R. O. T. C. a young man's health is the object of special attention. In case
of a minor deformity or disorder his parents are apprised of that fact, so that a cor-
rection may be effected.
Cleanliness of body and dress is the object of special attention. Each Friday
accouterments are inspected. Habits of personal cleanliness are encouraged.
And still, I have not mentioned an item of incaculable valueg the comradeship
among the fellows in an R. O. T. C. unit. Many friendships are formed in a unit which
endure for life. There is a closeness, a camaraderie in the military which just isn't
present in any other organization."

l 52-45-47! HIKE! A promising start was made by the
Purple and White football squad with a 14-0 victory
over Marion on our home field. In the second game of the
season we were humbled by Bloomington 7-2. The follow-
ing week Southport turned in a 27-0 victory at our ex-
pense. "Hank" Bogue's boys drew out a 27-0 score from
Shelbyville at their stadium at a night tilt. In the first
city series game the Continental warriors traveled to the
Shortridge field to lose a tight game, 7-0. The following
week the squad hit their stride and humbled Sheridan 13-0.
This seemed to encourage the boys, and they repeated
their success the following week with a victory over Tech,
in the tightest and most interesting game of the year, with a score 7-6 as the final
gun sounded. The Continentals finished the season at the south side field with a 7-0
triumph over Manual. This series ended in a three way tie with Tech and Shortridge,
and the City Championship was retained for the season. Three of our lads scored high
honors on the all-city team. They were center, Harry Greeley, guard, Louis Luzar, a
two-year all-city man, and fullback, Harry Cherry, making the '34 season his third
time to be on a Purdue all-city team.
Coach Rosasco's freshman football and basketball squads had enviable records,
winning all of their football games and losing only two net encounters. We congratulate
Coach Rosasco and his squads.

GET THAT tip-off! The Continental basketball team ended a fair season this year
with an average of .50-Oi, in baseball language, by splitting even on the scheduled
games, winning eight and losing eight. The purple and white lads lost to Plainfield,
Mooresville, Southport, Danville, Ben Davis, Manual, and Cathedral, but retaliated with
victories over Greenwood, Noblesville, and Brownsburg.
In the city tournament Coach J ones's squad defeated Broad Ripple in the second
round but were humbled by Tech in the finals. The Purple and White team drew the
favorites, Tech, in the sectionals, and were eliminated 31-15 in the first round. Cherry,
Continental forward, one of the all-city teams and Howard, center, made the all-
sectional third team. The highest individual scoring honors went to Lafayette Hooser of
the "B" team, who scored a total number of 104 points.

PEAKING of Greek athletes, they had nothing on the
Washington high school femmes who organized an
Athletic Association in January under the sponsor-
ship of Misses Loehr and Workman. The pledge was taken
by one hundred girls, now charter members. The club gave
banquets for basketball and hockey players at the close
of each season. In the spring, the organization entertained
other high schools with play days which included regular
gym work, volley ball, games, and contests.
Members of the organization who earn 400 points
in athletics will be given a monogram, 1000, an old English
Wg and 2,000, a C. G. A. A. sweater. The purpose of the
organization is to stimulate interest in athletic activities and health work. The initial
ofiicers elected were: president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, health manager,
yell leader, hockey manager, basketball manager, baseball manager, tennis manager,
volleyball manager, track and field manager.
The girls' basketball team played one game this season with Shortridge and was
defeated 21-13 in a fast game. The team was chosen from members of the "A" league
which is made up of experienced players. The "B" league consists of beginners and those
having little experience. These leagues are divided into teams which have tournaments,
and the winning teams are presented with silver ftinj cups at the annual basketball
banquet. This year the season ended with a junior-senior game, won 25-14 by the seniors,
who rallied in the last half after trailing in the first two quarters.

team broke into action with fifty girls answering the call for hockey last fall. They
were divided into four teams captained by Nancy Baumhoffer, Jane Fletemeyer,
Margaret Groff, and Reva Wright, and an intramural tournament was held. Nancy
Baumhooffer's team won the tournament, defeated the other three of the four teams. The
Shortridge and Washington teams traveled to Richmond to play the opener for the
Chicago-Earlham game. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. After the game the girls were
entertained with a tea by the Earlham girls. At the end of the season a hockey banquet
was held and the "A" and "B" teams were selected. With ice underfoot the "A" and
"B" teams play to a 3 to 3 tie, which was the final decision. Josie Brisnick was elected
next year's hockey manager.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION is one of the most important courses in school. It strength-
ens both body and mind, and makes us fit for other studies. The girls are divid-
ed into four classes, the Gym I's, Il's, III's, IV's, and advanced, and have definite
aims for each class. There are certain activities common to all classes such as basket-
ball, volleyball, baseball, track, tumbling, and apparatus which vary in diiiiculty ac-
cording to classes. Dancing is grouped so that the Gym I's have rythm, Gym II's folk
dancing, Gym III's tap dancing, and Gym IV's and advanced, a combination of all these.
The athletic activities are rather seasonal. In autumn we have the annual tennis tour-
nament, and hockey: in winter we have basketball, which is the only sport at that time:
in spring we have baseball, volleyball, tennis, track, and field. This is the fullest season
in the school year. The gym exhibition is given by the girls and boys, and is usually
divided into three parts: first, the girls doing tumbling, rhythm work, and exercises:
second, the boys: and third, folk and modern dancing in the native costumes. This year
the girls formed an athletic organization under the sponsorship of Miss Loehr and Miss
The boys' gym classes have a series of activities common to all of the classes.
Naturally, the more difficult stunts are given to the advanced students. The gym classes
have tumbling, apparatus, exercises, contests, and games. They play class basketball
and volleyball, and in the spring they go outside for baseball. Each year the boys
have a track meet of all the classes combined, and ribbons are awarded to the out-
standing boys. In the annual gym exhibition, the boys show these activities as they are
done during classes. They show beginning and advanced tumbling and apparatus, and
different games and contest.
T THE Girl Reserves of George Washington high school
hold their meetings at Hawthorne House on Monday
evenings. After the meeting there is usually a program
given by members of the club or a speaker from the
Y. W. C. A.
Every year they have a Christmas and Valentine
party at which they exchange gifts and valentines.

TRAILS, steep trails, rugged trails, rocky trails, are the ones followed by the Camp-
fire Girls. This may sound difiicult, but the girls really enjoy the work so much that
the trails seem to be merely shady paths. This summer they are going to organize a
new camp near Morgantown. The girls that go to camp will have the privilege of making
the trails. This organization plans many projects during the year. During the Christ-
mas season old dolls were taken to the Campfire workshop and repaired. Afterwards,
the girls dressed the dollsg and a prize, which was a week-end at Camp, was oifered
for the best dressed doll. The prize was won by a Washington girl. Last winter, two
hospitality courses were given at the Banner-Whitehill furniture store, at which the
preparation of attractive salads and sandwiches was demonstrated under the spon-
sorship of Miss Edna Purvis. The group at Washington high school have learned to
makle some beautiful purses out of wooden beads which came from Czechoslovakia.

EVERY SATURDAY between 11:30 and 1:00 the members of the Hi-Y club have a
gym period at the Y. M. C. A. Also, the regular weekly meetings of the club are held
at the Y. M. C. A. every Tuesday evening at 7:30 and are preceded by an hour of recreat-
ional games and sports. This year the Hi-Y also sponsored a skating party that was held
at the Y. M. C. A. An Older Boys' Conference was held at Michigan City, Indiana, to
which two delegates from Washington were sent. The club was also represented at the
State Y. M. C. A. Conference at Kokomo, the State Hi-Y Officers' Conference held in
Indianapolis, and the annual Hi-Y Field Day in Bloomington.
The club was responsible for two convocations this year. These were the ones in
which Mr. Arthur C. Ruth spoke to the freshman class on "The Value of Hi-Y Organ-
ization and its Work" and the one in which Dr. Herman Chen-En-Liu addressed the
school about conditions existing in China.
The object of the club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school
and community high standards of Christian character.

"School days, school days, Dear old golden rule days."
I THE GAIETY of school days ends with the seniors de-
parting to enter college or the business world. As our
graduates look back over their four years at Washington
high school, they remember most clearly the festivities
of the senior year. We, therefore, think it appropriate to
devote a few pages of this year book to senior activities.
Our senior colors are grey and scarlet. The January
officers were: Edwin Howard, president, Laverne Burns,
vice president, Helen Greeley, secretary, Mary Wood,
, treasurerg and Frank Cassell, sergeant-at-arms. The June
officers are: Frank Cassell, president, Edwin Russell, vice
presidentg Reva Wright, secretary, Harry Greeley, treasurer, and Sam McCormick,
Two senior parties were given, one at the close of the first semester and the other
on class day. At the class day exercises, the senior gavel was presented and also a
program which included the prophecy and will. A local pastor delivered the farewell
address at the annual Baccalaureate program. Beauty and originality were the keynote
of the commencement of the '34 graduating class. It was one of the most picturesque
exercises ever given by a high school. The four student speakers were Doris Smith,
Edith Carter, John Dunn, and Frank Cassell.

THE GEORGE WASHINGTON chapter of the National Honor Society, which was
formed in 1931, has for its object the furthering of scholarship, the rendering of
worthy service, and the encouraging of the development of character in pupils of George
Washington high school. The members are drawn from the senior and junior classes who
are in the upper third of their respective classes and have been voted on by the entire
faculty. The club has many active alumni. Among the club activities the present chap-
ter compiled and printed the Gist, a freshman guide. For the benefit of the school the
honor society arranged for a convocation to be given by the Arthur Jordan Conservatory

THE WASHINGTONIANS, a senior girls' organization, is for the purpose of pro-
moting interest in school activities and entertaining the freshmen. Some of the year's
activities are the Hallowe'en party for freshmen, the parasol parade, the doll contest,
a Valentine party for freshmen, the mother-daughter reception, a style show on correct
dress for graduation, and a talk by Mrs. Gaul. The doll contest this year was a bigger
success than usual. The dolls were taken to the Juvenile Court, the Riley Hospital,
and the Irvington Orphanage.

THE SENIOR boys' organization, the Minute Men, gave a banquet to the major sport
teams and took a leading part in other activities. This club donated a case for
athletic trophies to the school. To keep Minute Men graduates in touch with the club
and their Alma Mater, plans for an alumni Minute Men Club were approved by both
the club and the alumni.
To obtain membership any boy of senior standing must have a grade average of
"B" and a written statement approving his election, from four members of the faculty
including his session room teacher. The members give unselfish service in school affairs
such as selling candy at football and basketball games, aid in the sponsoring of the
junior-senior basketball game to finance the banquet to the major sport teams, and
other projects. Officers were: John Dunn, president, Mike Stanich, vice-president,
Hayden Rahm, secretary, Alvin Spangler, treasurer.
