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.

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. itll I i Q n t ' K . :Aw , ,iv Q.: .

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 acting. 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 his vocabulary. l0l ! f7J " 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 an oasis! 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 Strouse, treasurer. 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.

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 world citizenship. 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. gioj 7 w E111 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. llllflllnfllll llll lulfllu llllfllll 'Wllll llll 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.

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. nur mr- :auf un nuinn. . un nn' nu? 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. I14l E151 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 typewriter tables. 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. fnnfnn--nn -unfuu nu nninun-' nuTnn 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. nn nu - nn- -lnufnniun :minus nnfnn, 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. E161 1171 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. E131 hyat., A f 47.31 f' ,R in if Gan, E191 IMULATE LOAD! Ready! Aim! Squad! Fire! The R. O. T. C. department of this school has gone beyond just being an honor school and is rated as the best unit of four states. At the annual inspection of the government honors were bestowed upon certain boys. The staff is com- posed of Colonel Francis Howell, Adj-Captain Ray Wheeler, Major Robert Cole, Adj-Lieutenant John Macy, and captain of sponsors, Hazel Chapman.

They gave entertain- ments during the year and presented a medal on awards day to the best non-com- missioned ofhcers. The president was Robert Cole. 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. , , unfnuinn nnllni nnmnumnnf 1-nf, lm- 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 were lieutenants. l20l Q . - H, ' . .

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 itself creditably. 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." Sergeant Wolff I 22 l aft?

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. may . uufnn unnfnufnll lmlnuf' un un: 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. nufnn nu nufuu unit un: . nn, .nufuuf THE REGULAR track season closed Friday, May 4, with a victory over Warren Centi al, May 5, Ben Davis, 22, Southport, 20, Washington, 73, April 14, Wiley, 46, Washington, 71, April 18, Frankfort, 243 Washington, 853 April 20, Sheridan, 193 Manual, EBM, Washington, 8316.

E241 E251 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. .1191 In ' 'nn win: nu uuflu--uilfurwz BULLEYg Ground-Sticks, Ground-Sticks, Ground-Sticks, Crash! The girls' hockey 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. E261 5 MPVEQ '35 ,Q ,ww , 2'.- 1.

UNO-D7 Something similar to this happens every morning in the school clinic on the first floor. There is an average of thirty-five calls a day for everything from mumps to measles. The greater number of injuries are, however, minor cuts, burns, bruises, and sprains. In a record book are kept the name of each patient and the report of his illness. In a file is a record of every call made to the clinic during the pupil's four years in higih school. These files are kept by student helpers who aid the nurse in treating minor cases. What a comfort it is to have a nurse and a clinic in time of distress! , nufnn uuinnl4nllllnu-.uni nninn-un 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 Workman. 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. I28I Tfiiu. E291 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. The Freshman club sponsored a convocation,a talk given by a traveler in old Mexico. The officers: Marion Drago, presidentg Anna Cornwell, vice-presidentgThelma T l Kostoff, secretary, Dorothy Wolfe, treasurerg Catherine Burton, sponsor, and Betty Sullivan, program chairman. Y nu un--nu2.nn. - iulfnnufunmunnuinn nu 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.

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.

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, sergeant-at-arms. 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. un nu--un nn . nninu nn nuiun lm 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 of Music. nn uulnlnfun nuinufnunf nniun . . nu, L 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. un nu Y- nu mmf nnjnu nnfnuiun lm 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. l42l ah 74901 ai' I if va V 'MW -'49 tk- -.
