The new high school was to be called George Washington High School, the site was to be on Washington Street, the old Cumberland Road, and was to cover twelve acres. The final location, as decided upon, extended south from Washington Street in the twenty-two hundred block to the Big Four Railroad property. The plans for the school met with approval of the City School Com- missioners. Actual construction began in 1924, and the school opened in 1927 under the supervision of Walter G. Gingery, Enrollment Increases The greater number of the new pupils and teachers transferred from Manual Training High Schoolg however, pupils of all the city high schools were given the oppor- tunity to signify their desire of enrolling in Washington High School. The members of the faculty coming to Washington from Shortridge were: Mr. Gingery, as principal, Miss Dorsey, as head of the English departmentg Mr. Bruce Morrisong and Miss Marie Sang- ernebo, who is now Mrs. Wilcox. From Manual came: Miss Amy Keene and Miss Bess Sanders Know Mrs. Wrightj as members of the English department, Mrs. Browning and Mr. Jones, math departmentg Mr. Money, head of the history department, Mr. Bock, head of the language department, Mr. Van Dorn, science departmentg Miss Elizabeth DeHass Know Mrs. Randolphj, home economics departmentg and Miss Loehr, physical education department. From the city grade schools came: Mrs. Ethel Hightower and Miss Myrtle Johnson, English departmentg Mrs. Head, language departmentg Miss Moder, history departmentg Mr. Harding and Mr. Muterspaugh, industrial arts depart- mentg and Miss Mary Cammack, home economics department. The following appointments brought the total number of the faculty to thirty-five: Mrs. Ina Gaul, as Dean, Misses Clarice Hedrick, Margaret Quinzoni, Alice Treat Know Mrs. Shultzj, Kathryn Smith Know Mrs. Schakelj, Alice Koehne, Ruth Hasely, Mary Laatz, and LaVon Whitmireg and Messrs. Knight, Schell, Shepard, and Bogue. Miss Walls was appointed secretary with Miss Forsch as her assistant. Twenty-eight of the original thirty-five charter members, to whom this book is dedicated, still retain posi- tions on the faculty-loyal stand-bys to the "Washington" cause. Nine-hundred and eighty-three students enrolled the first semester in a building designed to house one-thousand. By February, 1937, the number on the faculty was in- creased to seventy-two and the munber of the students to twenty-two hundred. The only increase in housing facilities has been the twelve portable rooms, used to house the overiiow of twelve-hundred students. We owe our success and progress to the splen- did cooperation of Mr. Gingery, the faculty, and the community leaders. School Ranks High George Washington High School has been the means of solidifying the West Side into one great community. The school has been granted a first class continuous com- mission from the Indiana State Department of public instruction and ranks high on the accredited list of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Both ratings are of the highest awarded by these standardizing agencies. Gifts The school has been the recipient of many gifts from prominent and noteworthy or- ganizations and individuals. The Major Harold C. Megrew, Auxiliary No. 3 of the United States Spanish War Veterans presented thirty-six U. S. fiags which are now placed in the various classrooms. J. K. Lily was the donor of the valuable painting of George Washington on the Field of Trenton, which hangs in an honored placed on the west wall of the auditorium, an inspiration to every student in our school. A silk flag was pre- sented by the Cornelia Fairbanks Chapter of the D. A. R. The bust of George Washing- ton, which stands in the main entrance hall, was given by the H. Lieber Company. The plaster cast, the Pageant ot' America, vvall decoration which hangs in the front vestibule, was designed, made, and presented by Mrs. Sangernebo. The Junior order of the United American Mechanics gave us the beautifully bound pulpit Bible and the large American fiag. These we use on ceremonial occasions. Hugh McLandon presented the bicentennial plaque of George Washington. Among the many autographed books which are a part of our library, are these autographed first editions: George Ade, Fable in Slangg Sabitini, Scaramoucheg Barrie, Little Minister: Hervey Allen. Anthony Adverse. Eleven hundred and fourteen copies ot' other books were donated to our library the first year. Today that number has increased to a total number of seventy-four hundred and thirty-seven volumes. Since 1928 each graduating class has presented a gift to the school, one from which they thought the incoming students would gain the most benefit. The class of '28 presented the picture of George Washington which bangs in the main ofliceg the class of '29, a thirty-five mm. moving picture machineg the class of' '30, the stage lightsg the class of '31, the clock which hangs in the main corridorg the class of' 332, the picture in the main corridor just outside room 104g the class of '33, a sixteen mm. picture machineg the class of '34 and '35, also sixteen mm. picture macbinesg and the class of '36, twelve library tables and chairs. Scholastic Records Scholastic ability and achievement has grown along with the enrollment. With each year Washington High gains greater prestige as her students and alumni conquer in their various chosen fields. Our alumni have carried on for Washington, as they have maintained honor-standing workin their various colleges. Our students have brought home to Washington many cups, medals, and plaques through their superior scholastic and athletic activities. The trophy case in the main hall stands as a mute reminder of our achievements. Sports Washington made her debut in the field of sports in her first home game with Crawfordsville. The score: Crawfordsville, 22: Washington , 6. Our football, basketball, and track teams have also contributed their share of trophies to our notable collection. Extra-Curricular Eight clubs had their origin the first year. By 1935 this number had reached the thirty-seven mark including three adult and alumni groups afiiliated with this school, Alumni Association, Parent-Teacher, and the Washington Men's Club. Ranking fore- most among our clubs areg the George Washington Chapter of the National Honor Society, Civic Quest, Minute Men, and the Washingtonians. The purposes of the clubs are to act as advisors of the freshmen boys and girls, respectively, and to promote civic and social life in the school. The clubs, as a whole, promote a loyal spirit in the school and in the community. Tenth Year This year has marked an unusual year of accomplishment and achievement. We have conquered in the field of sports as well as scholastically and have added an un- usual number of trophies to our trophy case. The school board has accepted a set of preliminary plans for a new addition. iYe have had our first alumni return as members of the faculty in the persons of Messrs. Ludlow and Luzar. We have established a beneficial exchange of faculty members with England. May the next ten years be as profitable and progressive as these iirst ten years have been, and may Washington continue to graduate students capable of assum- ing in society the positions of young men and women of self-direction and independence. is Q1 r o a 8 3 1 i 1 K 5 i f i v 1 .

WASHINGTON MEN'S CLUB The George Washington Men's Club is composed of the business and professional men of the- com- munity. It was organized for the purpose of promoting in- terest in the school. The club is a medium of contact and makes for better understanding of the school by the community. It serves to create public opin- ion in favor of George Wash- ington high school. PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCI- ATION The Parent-Teacher Associ- ation was organized- to create harmony and cooperation be- tween the parents and teachers of the school, and to provide funds for school needs and for child welfare. Four general meetings are held each year. At these times, clubs of the school furnish the programs. V D I 5 i 4 1 , .-. .. FOOTBALL The Continental football squad saw one of the most successful football seasons in ten years of competition. Under the leader- ship of Coach Henry Bogue, the team tied for the City Cham- pionship along with Shortridge and Tech. l In all, the Boguefmen won 6, tied 1, and lost 1 by the score of 7 to 0, scorng 190 points to their opponents' 19. BASKETBALL The Jonesboys under Coach Rowland Jones also carried on where the football team left off. They won a total of 19 games, including the City Champion- ship, and lost 3. First row, left to right: David Meyers, Rich- ard Pottenger, Capt. James Hardin, Gerald Eagan, and Mar- ion Carter. Second row: Coach Jones, Harry Short, William Mil- ler, Louis Leerkamp, and Mgr. McKenna. BASKETBALL The members of the reserve squad under Coach Frank Lu- zar are as follows: First row, left to right: Mgr. Tucker, Charles Coats, Harold Dowdin, William Beasley, Jack Peyton, and Mgr. Treager. Second row: Ray Jones, Ralph Canter, Ro- bert Kersey, Coach Luzar, Don- ald Beuke, David Redinbaugh, and Robert McCalip. TRACK The 1937 edition of thinley clads trekked out under Coach Thomas Britton, former DePauw speedster. Britton occupied the position vacated by Cleon Davies, now an exchange teacher in Cal- ifornia. The returning letter- men were as follows: James Stewart, Gilbert Bruning, Bill Johnson, Robert Kersey, Mar- ion Carter, Orville Menchoifer, Frank Dolan, Roland Sanders, Willis Milam, and William Beaumont. ! GIRLS BASKETBALL First row, left to right: Mir- iam Pottenger, Gladys Beckert, Ruby Kearns, Dorothy Welch, Beatrice Brittain, Marjorie Mey- ers, Martha Goodlet, Doris Pot- ienger, Miss Loehr, Second Row: Elnora Agnew, Georgia Mae Enyert, Rebecca Nerston, Virginia Williams, Stanis Stroy, Lois Miller, Mar- garet Haase, Lorene Schenk, Ethel Hudak. HOCKEY Hockey season for the girls corresponds, in more ways than one, to the football season for the boys. However, the "blood and thunder" must appeal to the female support of Wash- ington, for this sport draws a large number of the fairer sex. Any girl in school is eligible for either the A or B team. The varsity squad is selected by the instructor and by captains of the teams. GIRLS TENNIS TEAM First row, left to right: Be- atrice Brittain, Marjorie Katter- henry, Lorene Schenk, Elnora Agnew. Second row: Miss Loehr, Mir- iam Pottenger, Louise Lieben- derfer, Doris Pottenger, Mar- jorie Meyers, Stanis Stroy, Ka- therine Jones, Mrs. Hatfield. C. G. A. A. The purpose of the Continen- tal Girls' Athletic Association is to stimulate interest in phys- ical educationg to provide an or- ganization that will coordinate sports activities with an athlet- ic association, to develop lead- ershipg to foster a spirit of co- operation and friendliness: and to provide opportunity for girls to form worthwhile social con- tacts. CONTINENTAL SPORTS REVIEW, 1937 Another tradition has been upheld. The Continental athletic teams have made their impression in the sports world during the school year of nineteen-thirty-seven. Our athletic season opened with the "pig-skin toters" taking their first three games. The Boguemen downed Bloomington, Shelbyville, and Cathedral before being held to a scoreless tie by a powerful Southport eleven. Then the Continentals downed Kirklin and Shortridge, and it looked like a city championship for the West Side. But on the next Friday an outfit from Tech came to visit the Boguemen. A touchdown pass from Weaver to Crofts spelled doom for the Continentals. Tech won the ball game, 7 to 0, and the West Siders were forced to share the city crown with Tech and Shortridge. Our cross-country team finished on the right side of the ledger under the tutelage of Thomas Britton, new track coach. The distance-men captured four of their meets, while losing three. The 1937 edition of the Jonesboys hung up the best record in the history of the school. In the regular season, the City Champs gained decisions over the following teams: Mooresville, Beech Grove, Broad Ripple, Danville, Alexandria, Greenfield, Manual, Ben Davis, Noblesville, Peru, Cathedral, Bainbridge, and Warren Centralg they fell victims of Crawfordsville, Southport, and Plainfield. In the City Tourney, which the Continentals captured for the second time, Broad Ripple, Manual, and Shortridge fell before the speed and deceptive plays of the West Siders. During the Sectional play at Tech, the J onesboys beat Oaklandon but were eliminated by a fast quintet from Decatur Central. In the regular season, Carter was the high point man with 185 points. Leerkamp col- lected 142 points, Miller, 1173 Hardin, 823 Pottenger, 52, Short, 283 Eagan, 103 and Meyer, 3. At this writing, the track season has not yet begun. But with seven returning lettermen, and promising material from last year's freshman squad, the prospects of Coach Britton's building a winning aggregation are exceedingly bright. This year the thinly-clads meet: Wiley of Terre Haute, Ben Davis, Broad Ripple, Greenfield, South- port, and Warren Central, besides participating in the city, sectional, and state outdoor meets at Tech. The purpose of girls' athletics is to provide opportunity to play games, develop physical powers and dexterity in the various sports, and, also, to teach the fundamentals of good sportsmanship. The sports season for 1936-37 opened with tennis. Winner for the season was Lorene Schenk, with Francis Featheringill as runner-up. The second sport of the season was hockey. Captains of the A League were: Margaret Haase, Helen Cox, Elnora Agnew, and Jean Roberts. Helen Cox's team won the majority of the games played among the intramural teams. One inter-school game was played. Our hockey team de- feated Shortridge with a score of 3-0. The captains on the B League were: Helen Stans- bury, Marietta Tucker, Lyndell Dickerson, and Victoria Stevenson. The winning team in the B League was captained by Victoria Stevenson. The girls selected for the varsity were: Evelyn Bonesteel, Beatrice Brittain, Helen Cox, Georgia Enyert, Martha Goodlet, Ruth McHugh, Marjorie Meyers, Lois Miller, Doris Pottenger, Miriam Pottenger, Mary Saboff, Lorene Schenk. Basketball followed hockey with Rebecca Nerston, Margaret Haase, Doris Pottenger, Ruth McHugh, Elnora Agnew, and Gladys Beckert acting as captains of the A League. Captains of the B League were: Marietta Tucker, Betty Schuck, Victoria Stevens, Evajean Siddons, Joanne Tennery, Mary Ferguson, Mary Miller, and Juanita Montgomery. The spring sports include volley-ball, baseball, and track. Miss Loehr and Mrs. Hatfield are the coaches. e W' 1" : ' ., , 4, lk 'f-55 . 3,,,1f5-gy 'K 'NT N: 1- 1, 1 i 'Kwai 4, 3,5 X sg W, , K Q, ,. -- -f -:IM wg, ,. . 1.

Thomas Carlyle has said, "An educated man stands, as it were, in the midst of a boundless arsen- al and magazine, filled with all the weapons and engines which man's skill has been able to devise since the earliest time." Never were trurer words written. He who has knowledge, and with it wisdom and understanding, controls the thoughts and deeds of men. It is rather simple to acquire knowledge. The libraries, newspapers, and mag- azines are full of it. Just to read, hear, see, and remember is all that is needed. But a fully educated man, one who holds the "arsenal," must have wisdom and understanding. This was Gods' gift to Solomon. It is, for the taking, his gift to us. After we have learned facts and theories, we must be able to apply our knowledge to everyday living. We must make that knowledge a part of ourselves. Truly educated men have done this, and in doing have acquired wisdom and understanding. The world is full of half-educated men and women--those who have only knowledge. Their condi- tion is worse than if they were ignorant. But there is a scarcity of fully-educated people. Humanity needs those who are educated. Let us make use of the tools which time has laid at our doorstep, which our ancestors worked so hard to fashion. In doing this we will be able "to make the world a better place in which to live, for our having been in it." -Eugene Leak WHAT SIGNIFIES OUR WORK? Through the four years of high school we have taken our work, more or less, for granted-as a matter of routine, just as we do any other phase of life. But now that we are Seniors, we ask ourselves this question: "How has our education helped to benefit us?" As we consider this question, we begin to realize that education has brought out and cultivated certain qualities in our character, which otherwise would have remained secreted deep within ourselves, hidden by a rough exterior. We may not all be educated to the same extent as we leave our classrooms, but we all have, undoubtedly, developed some degree of leadership, dependability, initiative, and self-confidence as a result of our efforts there. We have learned that cooperation between classmates, teachers, and ourselves was essential to maintain the best interests of our school, and that cooperation created a desire in us to do things better. By means of extra-curricular activities and convocations, we have had opportuni- ties to develop and enrich our own lives, while at the same time rendering a service to the school. Although we may have finished our scholastic education, we have only begun our life's education. So we see that high school is a stepping stone to a higher and better life through education. -Robert Graham EPIGRAMS Bar Claws Beaumont, from yon hiyrh hill Is special guard to our friend Bill. 10 seconds Hardin rates the fame For winning the city tourney game.

Senior Class. NEWS BROADCAST, 1950 Good evening, faculty, alumni, and all the studes at sea, let's go to press! Flash! Sam Mouron, youngest genius of the time, has again astounded the scientific world with an invention. This time it is a television newspaper. You can actually see the news as it happens. Your reporter wonders how many people will miss the "funnies." should this invention become practical. Flash! Hollywood, California: Miss Dorothy Welch, recently of the Federal Players, has flopped in another one of those super-colossal productions which Hollywood puts out in her off-moments. It is a shame, too, considering the fact that three Olympic swimming stars, Howard Krick, Strother Martin, and A1 Rust, were also in the picture. Flash! Ruth Cunningham, foremost hair stylist and owner of the La Ruthie Beauty Salon, today announced that this season milady will die her hair to match her costume. Flash! Paul Short, biologist, has discovered a new germ, the kind that makes people sleepy. He has also discovered a way to kill it. The first person to be treated was . . . the roll! Flash! Mary Ann McRee of the mountain country has just completed a book on negro folk lore entitled Den Man Spoke Up. Flash! The dignified Colonel William iBar Clausel Beaumont of Kentucky stated yesterday that he had at last found why his horse, Wildfire, hasn't won any races. It seems that the horse wasn't a horse at all, but Bill Johnson in disguise. Mr. Johnson said, when discovered, that he was merely trying to keep in training for track. Flash! Mike Mates was arrested yesterday for taking candid snaps of Miss Freda Marvel, lovely stage actress. It seems that Mr. Mates caught Miss Marvel in a very off- moment. Flash! Totten and Scotten, the two funny men of vaudeville, have started an am- ateur hour. Some of the very first try-outs were: Helen Carter, who did an imitation of Al Jolsong Bud Davis, baritone, and Maxwell McCoy, ballad singer. Monk Rogers was the first to get the gong. Flash! Aaron Eugene Leak, American essayist, has just returned from a most successful lecture tour of the British Isles. He arrived last night on the Queen Mary which is now captained by Sir Robert Fidger. Flash! Miss Margaret King was voted the most perfect secretary, yesterday, by three of her former bosses, Charles Rupert, Willis E. Milam, and Harland Money. As a prize she will get two weeks vacation at Atlantic City with all expenses paid. Flash! Clarice Kanalac, of the Kanalac Charm School of Correspondence, has taken Jeanette Dudley in as partner. Flash! James Hardin, sports announcer, left yesterday for Santa Anita to broad- cast the races. Before leaving, he told your correspondent that this year he was picking James Waddell's "Ducky" and Don Wright's "Sweet Williams" as sure winners. Flash! Out at the Yankee stadium yesterday Carroll Perry pitched a good game. He struck out the great home-run king, Roy Green, no less than three times. Flash! Major Robert W. Gingery, on his return flight from the Gobi Desert, met with an unexpected adventure when his plane caught fire in the middle of the Atlantic ocean last Friday. The fiames were hastily put out, however. Major Gingery's only re- mark about the mishap was, "Well, it was just a case of 'Water, water all around me, and not a drop to put out the fire.' " New York: Don Darland of the movies--in case you have forgotten-was forced to stay in his hotel room last night, because every time he went out he was surrounded by reporters-and women. George Sullivan of the Daily Slam succeeded in gaining admit- tance into the apartment by bribing the house boy, Willie Tee Wyne. However, he was very unsuccessful in securing an interview. 1 Robert Staub, cowboy from the West--side, who won the Cowboy Song-Writing Contest sponsored by Lester Cain and Richard McKenna, is, for the first time in his life, seeing the sights of old New York. When your reporter last saw him, he had just re- turned from Grant's Tomb and was planning a trip to the Aquarium. "Coney Island," he said, "isn't much bigger than Riverside back home." Half-wits Delight, now in its third year on Broadway, has netted over a half mil- lion dollars for its author, Robert QSherwoodi Schaub. Geneva lFountaini Miller and Carroll Roberts, leads, will play their 800th performance next Thursday night. Flash! William J. Graney of Dupont last week announced to the astonished world that he has invented a formula for invisible celephane. h"I'his eelephanef' he says, "will revolutionize industry and architecture with windowless windows, doorless doors. and houseless houses." A great boon to salesmen. John Niermeyer, the cynic poet, has published a book ot' poems entitled Swails and Swallows. To date three books have been sold ...... all in the family of couise. BY WAY OF THE HIGH SEAS . . . Milan, Italy: Norma Whited, recently of the "Met" is in the midst of a success- full concert tour. With her are the rest of her sisters acting as financial advisors. You know, they tell her how to spend her money. Paris, France: It was learned today that the lovely continental dancing star, Mlle. Mary Saboff is planning a tour of the United States with the comic accordion player, Robby Rothman. Vladivostok, Siberia: Paul Hubble was sent here after a few Russians heard him play "Honeysuckle Rose." The Russians evidently appreciate music. Paris, France: Ralph McComb's new showing of spring styles was lauded by all who Saw. Berlin, Germany: The Violin Twins, Sara Beth Brown and Mary .Iayne F1-oyd. played the "Bee," here, before a large audience last night. ODDITIES IN THE NEWS . . . The famous race driver, Louie Haboush, was arrested for slow driving by Onicer Robert Facker. Dan Ellwanger, who has just finished a booklet entitled Why Boys Cut Class lfor vice-principalsj, has been elected president of the Anti-Truant Club. Flash! Louise Glover has just stated that she is planning to participate in the Sheflield-Cumberland air races between San Francisco and New York. And now for the mail that the time will allow. We reply to the following: Mr. Robert Graham of Indianapolis: Yes sir, Phyllis McTarsney was the woman reporter who got the exclusive story on the Bill McPeek get-away from the G-Men last April. Miss Helen Schwartz of New York: No, Miss Schwartz, I don't believe a chorus girl has much of a chance in burlesque. Kenneth W. Bennett of Newark: Lowell Baurley, not Roy Green, was the person chosen Mr. America, 1950. He got his start in beauty contests at George Washington High School where he was elected May Queen. Mr. 'Thomas McKeon: The star of the hit play, "The Perfect llratf' is Verna Madsen. They say the part Hts her perfectly. Mr. R. J. Schaub of Chicago: The author of the book, entitled "Blown by the Breezef' is Carl Windisch. And now, with oceans of love, I 1'emain your Washington Correspondent, Wash- ington Watchall, who thinks that this world would be a better place in which to live it people counted their enemies' noses before they acted. - - -fn, Y - f-,, -A .- - I 4 l - 1 I llUIUWIlllWNl!!lUNlUlllllllllNNllUlllllNlIlWlNl 1-1 ,il ---1 -.1-1 - ...1- .1- ,li -- ai il ...lg ,-1-1 as ,i-1 i -l l nu- 1 vs 1 .il -.111 in qn -1. 1 ii- ans .- ,ilu ii- u-. gi-1 .11- i
