Mr. Robert Shepard, Mr. Louis Rutan, Mr.
Edward Emery, and Miss Alberta Denk keep the
musical notes rolling at Washington.
There are many music groups in our school.
These include the Boys' Glee Club, Girls' Glee
Club, Advanced Choir, Concert Band, the Orches-
tra, and the Colonial Chorus.
During the Christmas season the halls were
filled with beautiful music furnished by the Snow
Carolers, who are members of the Colonial Chorus.
Mr. Emery has charge of this group. '
Mr. Rutan directs the band. This group usual-
ly plays for all the home football games, and they
also march with the R. O. T. C. for the annual in-
Miss Denk leads the orchestrag and they, too,
furnish the school with many hours of musical
entertainment. The two Glee Clubs and Freshman
Girls' Chorus supply music for any special occa-
sions. Mr. Emery also directs thes-e vocal groups.
And so, "Merrily, we roll along, roll along---"
The print shop is always a place of busy
workers. They are constantly on the go either
getting the Sufrrveyor ready to meet the publica-
ticn date, or printing programs and forms need-
ed for the student body. These boys also do a
splendid job each year of printing the year book.
Some of the other shop classes in which the
boys can prepare for a job after school are elec-
tric shop, metal shop, and wood shop. These
classesphelp the boys gain vocational training
while being of service to the school.
With pins in mouth and scissors in hand,
these girls start their day. Ready to take a piece

teachers who direct their skills in a guiding way.
When these girls graduate, they will really ap-

Other members of the Art Staff are: Riley Ber-
tram, Mary Jane Spiehler, Bill Stoneking, Marco
Tasich, Marilyn Simmons, Marjorie Trammel, Ra-
chel Ratcliff, and Donna Barrett.
Last and certainly important, is the person
who directs the art work on the yearbook, Miss
LaVon Whitmire. Her untiring efforts are apprec-
iated by the staff.
Now we find our 'l,.9er roaming through the
halls again. He has made his way to room 104. . .
Wait! What was that horrible scream! Now some-

In March, Shirley Waltz, a member of Mrs.
Wright's English III Class presented a number
of "Civic Pride" speeches. Bill Haines, a member
of the Speech Class, entered the American Legion
Oratorial Contest. His speech was entitled, 'tOur

And with these good things in mind we take
our '4.9e'r on down the long halls. . .
"Come on team, fight!" This is
just one of the many cheers that
may be heard at the sport events
frcm the Booster section. This club
also plans pep sessions which get
everyone in the proper spirit to
win a championship game. From
this club come our cheerleaders
who put a great deal of time into
the perfection of our cheers. Mrs.
Hine, Miss Lindley, and Mr. Otto
are the sponsors.
These students are interested in
the different commercial subjects
at our school. They meet each we-ek
with Mrs. Freundt to plan Ways
which will stimulate their interest
even more in this vast field. Com-

or girl the training necessary for
that first job.

S. Barnes was injured during a practice session
last year when he broke his leg running into a
bench. Due to this injury he played only defense
because of his slowness as a running guard.
There were other injuries to hamper the Con-

his leg in the second game of the year and was
out for the season, Joe Patterson dislocated his
shoulder in early season and was out for the
rest of the campaign, Fred Keers was injured
with a slight brain concussion during the Short-

during the South Bend Central game, and Jack

heroes," were Jack Smith, endg John Lahne, tac-
kle, Fred Keers, guard, and Charles Scalf, at
center, on the right side were Lowell Thomas at
endg Charles Peterson, tackleg and Capt. Barnes
and Joe Toscano, guards.
The juniors of the team command a great
deal of respect for their chances for next year's
team. Junior backfield men were Mike Purichia,

ry Maschino, the guards.
The "B" team, coached by Frank Luzar, went
all the way for the third straight year for a "B"
team championship. The team played all the season,
until the last game, without being scored on, then
a boy from Tech went through tackle and guard
for a 65 yard run to have the honor of being the
first Washington B team opponent to taste pay
The Freshman team won 2 and lost 4 games.
The team is coached by capable John Williams.

The Bucket Boys
The basketball team maintained for Washing-
ton a top spot in inter-scholastic basketball. The
Continentals won 8 and lost 12. In December, the
"Big Five" took the City Tourney, defeating Tech
for the championship.
The quintet was defeated by Tech, 42-40, in
the first game of the Sectionals.
The Speedway game was considered the best
played because of Theofanis' oifensive, Crittenden's
rebounding, W. Dittemore's defensive, and Smith's
fighting spirit in defeating the County Champs.
Theofanis was high point man with a total of
259 points for the season and an average of 12.6
points a game, and he was also chosen forthe All-
Sectional Basketball Team.
Crittenden, Theiofanis, W. Dittemore, Smith,
Sellers, Badger, and Overton are graduating, and
the returning Lettermen for next year are Lowery,
Schroeder, Tillery, B. Dittemore, and Border.
Coach Dave Hine, an alumnus of Washington
High School, is in his first year of coaching the
cagers. We congratulate Coach Hine and wish
him luck in future years.
Meanwhile the B-Team coached by Mr. Amos
Slaton, did well with a record of 13 victories and
6 defeats. Chief point-getter in the basketball
campaign was Larry Masterson, with a total of
John Williams' freshman squad ended their
season with 6 wins and 9 losses.

Once more as spring comes a young
man"s fancy turns to baseball. Washington
lost all their lettermen but one. Chris Theo-
fanis, one of last year's stars, will con-
tinue his career in college. Last season,
Chris' one-hand stab saved the game
against Ben Davis 2-1. The best game of
the year was at Victory Field when we
played Broad Ripple. Dennis Jent signed a
contract with the New York Yankees.
Wilhoite got an extension on his contract
with the Dodgers to go to college. We came
in second for the City Championship.
Now for this year's team. Coach Luzar
says the team will only be as good as the
catcher. Don Leppert, the only returning
letterman, is playing this position, and the
coach says he has the makings of a fine
catcher. Bob Bell will pitch. He had some
experience last year. As this book goes to
press, everyone is eagerly awaiting the
beginning of the baseball season.

2nd row: Assistant Coach R. Jones, E. Brower, R.
Bell, W. Dittmore, D. Leppert, J. Lee, G. Theofanis,
D. Edwards, mgr., and Coach Frank Luzar.
Don Leppert stands ready and waiting for the
pitcher to pitch the ball. Winfield Dittemore is ready
to catch it, too. Winfield was a relief catcher. This
is Leppert's third year to play ball under Frank
Luzar. Winfield played last year. There are 18 boys
working hard and hoping to be one of the starting 9.
C. G. A. A.
The Continental girls went out for sports in
a big way this last school year. As a result, the
C. G. A. A. had a larger than average membership.
There were enough girls interested to organize an
intramural "round-robin" basketball tournament.
The six teams and their captians were: "Howe,"
Barbara Vargog "Tech," Rosemary Whiteheadg
"Shortridge," Lois Coyg "Manual," Joan Gribbleg
"Broad Ripple," Elizabeth Moore, and, "South-
port," Patricia Bishop. Only one team, "Howe,"
was able to survive the rugged tourney withouta
At the close of the basketball season, lst and
2nd teams were chosen to compete as a curtain
raiser to the annual Senior vs. The World game.
These 16 elite "femme hoopsters" put on quite a
show, and proved their proficiency at the sport by
piling up a 36-26 score, in favor of the lst team.
After the "Hoosier Madness" had worn off,
the girls turned to volleyball and baseball in
which sports they again proved themselves cap-
able and had a swell time doing it.
"Now, your next aim is to do two forward rolls
on the mat. After you can do this, go to the balance
beams and practice another aim I" Where have those
words been spoken? Why, in the girls' gym classes,
of course, and probably Miss Eckel, Mrs. Segall, or
Miss Loehr have uttered them.
Aims in these gym classes are parallel to the
work assigned in other subjects. A set of aims,
which usually includes work on me mats, ladders,
horses, rings, balance beams, exercises, rhythmics
and the sport then in season is made up for each
class by the teachers every six weeks.
After sufficient time is allowed for the learn-
ing of these aims, pupils are graded on them. This
is done on a point basis, five points being the per-
As you can see, this system is fair to the
student for the aims grades, plus some other re-
quired work, produce a clear picture as to the
grade a girl deserves on her report card.
