After a season of strenuous
training, these valiant soldierettes
bravely marched onto the field of
battle to meet the oncoming foe,
Shortridge. This small army of
hard fighting volunteers used
many strategic maneuvers to out-
wit the resisting force. Both de-
fensive and offensive units, form-
ed of Washington's Continental
Coeds, fought hard hand-to-hand
battles with warriorettes from
Ending their season with a mor-
al victory, the Coeds stored away
their equipment and began pre-
paring for training in other phases
of their "health defense."
Another phase in the Continent-
al Coed's "health defense move-
ment" is training in aerial accur-
acv and combat.
The aviatrix squadron were
given basic ground training before
being allowed to take to the air.
After their ground work, they
were taught aerial fundamentals,
and were permitted to start work-
ing towards their "wings"
Several of the trainees put in
many hours of "solo flight" before
the aerial combat with the "flyers"
from the Indiana State School for
Although the local cadets fought
a fast battle, the Silent Hoosiers
bested our Coeds during the en-
suing "dog fight."
Coach llenry Rogiu-'s 1940 pig-
skin toteis played eight ball
grannies, winning three, losing' three,
and tying two.
Although they failed to win the
city title, the Continentals captur-
ed the South Central Conference
Several of the boys received
berths on the All-City teams, and
liill Keers was nominated to the
Danny Roth, quarterback, eup-
tained the 19.10 a5ry.51'egation
There have been teams in VVash-
ington history which have bwasted
more enviable recorls, but this
year's squad showed the tiqhtinf
spirit and the will to win, which
is the characteristic of all Washing-
ton athletic teams.
"Lady Luck" snulabed Washing:-
ton's 1940-41 net snipcrs, but des-
pite all the had breaks, the Con-
tinentals set Greencastle back on
their heels to the tune of a 34-25
shellaeltingr. This was the only vic-
tory of the entire campaign for
the Jonesboys, hut it was a well-
ln the elty tourney, the Contin-
entals succumbed to Tech, and
Sin-edway's Sparkplugs eliminated
the Joneshoys in the local section-
"l'arlie" Veterehetl' led the team
and deserves all the credit which
can be bestowed upon him.
Several heartbreakers were lost
by Coach Rowland Jones' charges.
Cravvfordsville nosed out the Con-
tinentals in the last 20 seconds of
play, and Franklin came from
behind in the last quarter to rob
the Jonesluoys ot' another victory.

A supposedly weak tarack team
turned out to be a champion as
Washington's 1941 track squad
found victory in five of six meets.
Led by their stellar captain, Har-
old Rickenback, the Continentals
bowled over Southport, Franklin,
Manual, and Howe in dual meets.
Ben Davis and Warren Central
fell before the Continental on-
slaught in a triangular meet.
The only mar on the Julianman's
record was an STVZ to 2919 shell-
acking by Wiley fTerre Hautel.
Washington finished fourth in
the city meet. as Don King be-sted
Techls Lowish in an exciting 440
yard dash, in :53.7 seconds.
The Continentals also finished
sixth in a field of 21 teams.
W'ashington's 1940 cross coun-
try aggregation experienced one
of its most unsuccessful seasons,
losing all of its scheduled meets.
However, the record is not as
black as it may at first appear, as
many of the meets were close.
Harry Sullivan, captain, Bill
Smith, Ray McKay, Ralph McKay,
Harry Miller, Chester Posey, and
Lloyd Posey formed the team.
The Continental harriers fell be-
fore Manual, Ben Davis, Howe,
Southport, Warren Central, and
In the state cross-country meet,
Harry Sullivan won a medal for
placing tcnth in a field of runners.

lVashingtonians is a senior girls'
club under the leadership of Miss
Johnson, dean of girls. This organ-
ization has done fine work for the
school in the past years.
Every semester members of this
group plan a party for all incom-

In the fall of every year it is
customary for this organization to
sponsor a. parasol parade. Prizes
are awarded for neatness, artistic
ability, and for originality. To dis-
play these renovated umbrellas,
the girls march in formation on
the football field between halves of
one of the games.
During the Yuletide season, the
Washingtonians encourage the
dressing of dolls for invalid child-
ren at the Riley Hospital.
Many cheers of delight arise
from the young patients upon re-
ceiving the dolls. This activity is
not limited to senior girls, for any-
one may enter in the contest.
Prizes are awarded for neatness
originality, and for artistic merit.
A climax to a host of activities
is the Mother's Day Tea. This tea
pays tribute to the greatest friend
a girl may ever have, her mother.
The Washingtonians have com-
pleted a successful year under the

IT WAS. . .MURDER l
Henry Wesley, better known as "Hank", sat listlessly on the edge of his cot, mus-
ing at the ily crawling up the dull gray wall. Somewhere near, the chapel clock tolled
out the hour, 9:30. Just thirty minutes more, and. . . The thump of marching feet grew
louder as two long columns approached and shuffled past his door. Others, like him-
self, no longer men, just numbers. . . Yes, three months he had been a number. He had
said those figures over and over again until he no longer had to look, . . .no, . ..he
knew it by heart. . .3746. . .That was- all he was to anyone! Just. . .3746.
He'd always been a good boy. He'd always said nothing could lead him astray. He
remembered well his first day 'at school, how, from the very first moment he had seen
her, he had felt a tickling sensation around his heart. Of course, he did1n't understand
many things then. He remembered how proud his mother had been on his graduation
from grade school. Then she began to take in washings. He never knew until his senior
year at Middletown High that it had been so that he could continue school. Poor Moth-
er had worked so hard, and this was the way he was repaying her. Even with his
younger brother to look ,after her, she needed him so, now that she was bedridden. . .
six months :it was . . . but now. .. And Sue. . .but he might as wiell put her out of his
Sue Bradshaw, whom he had hoped to marry, had turned against him, too. But
that had been before this had happened. He hoped she didn't know about it. It would
be better that way. But then, she could have read it in the papersg how horrible it
must have been to read it! He began to wonder what her thoughts could have been
when she first learned that he had. . ., but there he was thinking of this drastic thing
about to happen. He must get it out of his mind: These last few minutes must be
peacefull. . . Sue had eloped with a sweeper salesman from the city, Ned Scuppernong.
She didn't believe him when he told her she was marrying a dude... She had slapped
his face when he said Ned was bald headed and wore a tofupe. She had begun to sus-
pect, though, the night they had the taify pull, and taffy had stuck in his teeth. Sue
had had to hide him in the sewing room until he scraped them clean. She didn't know
that everyone there knew what had happened.
Later they had eloped. Sue was too embarrassed to marry Ned in public.. . He
had wanted to marry Sue so, ...but it was better for her, perhaps, the way it was.
She'd never have had her little white bungalow, with the rose garden, and the winding
drive if she'd stuck by him.
Suddenly he heard the padded sound of foot steps in the distance. He suddenly
realized he couldn't have much time left, for the old chapel clock was tolling out the
hour, 10:00. The sou-nd of the old clock sent a feeling of warmth through him. He had
learned to listen for the sound of the old clock at all hours of the day. It was company
to him, but this was to be the last time he would hear its old familiar gong.
Just as the last gong sounded, the door opened and a hard looking, disciplined
man in a uniform entered. Hank jumped up and stood at attention, waiting for the
verdict. The uniformed 'man rea.d the order: "Fall in outside and form ranks at the
WHO STARTED THIS DRAFT, ANYWAY ?
WITH TIME TO WRITE
TWO LETTERS TELL A STORY
Today, and to all parts of the country, messages are flying to thousands of homes
from United States Defense camps at which are stationed our American youth-Iearn-
ing the principles of Armed Defense.
Somewhere in America
Life in camp isn't so bad after all. It has been a lot of fun so far. I've met some
interesting fellows, and we get along swell. I've got to tell you about them.
First, there's Bob Green who is a regular guy. He's one of the cleanest and most
honest fellows I've ever met. . .I like him a lot. . .Though he only lives down at Edge-
wood, I probably would never have met him but for the draft.
The life of the camp is Elizah Gooch, from Kentucky. He never before wore a
pair of shoes after April nor again until December, until he came to camp...and
they have a hard time making him wear them now. . .The gang keep kidding him by
saying that they have to be made especially for him. But he doesn't mind. . .To him,
"Hit's a swell life."
Well, there's Sam Hines, just out of college. He was crazy to get married at first
but his girl likes him so well in a uniform, he wonders why he didn.'t join up soon-
er. Dick Rhone, who got married to avoid the draft, is here with the rest of us...
plus a family of in-laws that are always coming to visit. They're driving him crazy.
"Slippy" is the type of fellow that you wouldn't trust with your back turned. . .means
well, though. "Goggs" is always ready to fight...with his glasses on. "Bo" is the
shortest man in camp. They're all a lot of fun.
How are things at home?. ..Has Joe been taking care of the house the way I
told him to? See you soon.
Well, goodbye, Mom...I'll write again Sunday...Take care of yourself
It's just an ordinary letter from a son to his mother...simple and matter of
fact. But do you stop to wonder how many mothers upon reading their sons' letters
recall days when they were reading very different letters from their husbands abroad?
Phil's mothe-r does. She keeps the letters from both of her men near her. And when
she received this lettetr of Phil J unior's, she paused to reread it and compa.re it with
this one of 1918.
Somewhere in France
I'll be leaving soon for the Front. . .and after that there'll be no telling when I'll
be able to write you again.
Life here """'L"". It makes me """""""'sometimes """"""" to look about me and see the
wholesale destruction of buildings that took centuries to build. . .and the morale of the
people """"""" after this war is over. I'll be thankful when I can come home again to
you and Phil, Jr.
Right now I am stationed at ""'it"'i'. If you should chance getting a letter through
to me, you can write there. I might get it.
All the fellows I came across with seem to be rather "down-in-the-mouth", to
quote old Sam, a fellow I came across with. They don't think this is any fun. . .They
all want to be at home with their families. . .but we have to make the best of it for
such buddies as young Phil.
This will probably be the last siege of the war. . .I really believe it won't last
much longer. . .then we can be together again.
Right now I am working in the """"""' with """""""f' and """"'if"' dangerous.
Old Sam is going to take this letter through for me. . .he had a family of his own
I'll write you as soon as I get back from the Front. Tell Phil Jr. I said "Hello",
Take care of yourself. . .
Two different letters. . .two different lives. . .and two different endings: Phil Jr.
