THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
stage of life, the Gods have en-
dowed some talent, some ability,
which is analagous to a diamond,
as it is found, rugged and dull, in
the rawness of nature.
Similarly, as this gem must un-
dergo the cautious process of cut-
ting and polishing before it emerges
a brilliantly smooth jewel of un-
estimable value, it is necessary for
the training of an individual to be
just as diligently exercised before
he may be capable to stand forth
and outshine his rank and Hle com-
Some few diamonds are more
outstanding and have a greater
value than others because of their
natural beauty and quality, while
a great number of them, no mat-
ter how particularly they are pre-
pared, refuse to become anything
but slightly more than insignifi-
cant brilliants. Likewise some
persons are naturally more accom-
plished than their neighbor who
has had the opportunity of unlim-
To what fact is the underlying
cause of this indifference due?
What made is feasible for a lowly
peasant girl, joan of Arc, to be
the crisis upon the outcome of
which hung the fate of a nation?
To those few who have been en-
abled to contribute to posterity
was given the gift of gifts-gen-
ius, the token from the Gods!
The average individual may
have a gem of remarkable apti-
tude for some special pursuit, but
it is an impossibility for everyone
to become a genius, and then au-
tomatically famous. It is the hap-
py balance between the geniuses
and the ordinary character who
contributes his small bit to hu-
manity, that maintains the pro-
gressiveness and the efficient func-
tioning of the world.
After the departure from the
workshop, the diamond does not
cease to be an object of' exquisite
beauty, it is really merely begin-
ning its gorgeous career of com-
The student's success in later
years leans upon
his acceptance of
the gift from the
Gods, after that,

BOARD IS SEVERELY TAXED BY
Foremosf Business Men Con+rol School Plan+
Each year the Board of Education is
faced with new and more perplexing
problems which require untiring effort
and efficiency. We are confident that
these five local business men have weighed
each situation with equal consideration
for the school and community, and to
further our interests.
They have enabled us to carry on our
studies and have made it possible for us
to graduate from a Hrst class high school.
We Seniors especially should attempt to
show our appreciation of these efforts, it
being so paramount to us, at the time we
are to take our places in the world.
We should also appreciate their effort
more because their only compensation or
recompense is the satisfaction derived
from their knowing that they have per-
A. J. Brown
formed their tasks efficiently, and the
knowledge of our appreciation for the
regard and kindness they have displayed.
Montpelier should realize the worth
of this group who have managed and
controlled our school system.

SUPT. H. S. MOFFITT
The high standard held by our school
is due to the dynamic personality and
seasoned wisdom vested in Supt. H. S.
Moffitt. Ten long years he has served
both school and community faithful
and well, always considering the needs
and desires of his students before act-
ing. His actions show decisiveness and
fore-thought. We are indeed proud

MODERN TREND OF EDUCATION
Free public education is the foundation
upon which our nation is built. It is the
rightful heritage of every American child.
It is fundamental to social welfare and to
national morale. Only through education
may we hope for an orderly solution of
our social and economic problems.
Our general welfare demands that the
American program of education be main-
tained and improved. This program pro-
poses to provide education suited to the
needs and capacities of all boys and girls
through the period of childhood and
youth. It is concerned not only with in-
tellectual achievement but also with
physical and mental health. It should
offer that variety of opportunity which
will make possible a maximum of achieve-
ment for children who vary greatly in
physical and mental capacity, in interests,
and in ambitions. Its goal is the achieve-
ment of equality of opportunity. This
is our fundamental American philosophy.
Educational aims and procedure must
meet the new demands and conditions of
a changing social world.
We have outgrown the scope of the two
present major objectives of education,
namely, that of self-preservation, which
includes the development of bodily vigor
and the accumulation of wealth, and that
of the search for truth, which is provided
for by the "three R's" and the various
The Fine Arts constitute the most ef-
fective medium for this process of emo-
tional enrichment and control. Music,
painting, sculpture, architecture and all
the minor arts of decoration and adorn-
ment, which embody the laws of harmony
and proportion and set forth the ideals
of beauty, are now indispensable in any
well-rounded, adequately conceived pro-
gram of education. The absorption of
their harmonizing and controlling prin-
ciples and influences is absolutely essential
to insure the full unfoldment of the per-
sonality and the characterof our future
citizens and leaders.
What is required in our present schools
is more time, more energy and skill de-
voted to the teaching of the arts so that
the third great objective of education,
that of developing the spiritual of ob-
jective self, may be fully realized.
The school diploma of the future will
attest to the student's ability in providing
for his bodily needs, to his industry and
accuracy in finding truth, and most im-
portant it will attest to his possession of
an enriched, controlled emotional nature,
a quickened sense of beauty and the
ability to express the subjective self.

PRINCIPAL H. M. SHAFFER
Mr. Shaffer is the refuge of the trou-
bled and the advice seeker, for in him
one recognizes the outstanding quali-
ties of kindness and impartial judg-
ment, together with the sternness nec-
essary to maintain discipline. His deep
affection for children and his thorough
understanding of their nature have
obviously warranted success in his role
as our school executive.
School-Heidelberg College, Ohio
The civilization which we are permit-
ted to enjoy today, complex as it may be,
offers many things for which we should
be thankful. The gifts that are ours de-
serve to be guarded with all the zeal and
energy at our command. The past and
the present reveal in no uncertain manner
the human weakness to err and forget are
most precious gifts, the home, the church
and the school. That these institutions
are the foundation stones upon which so-
ciety in the past has prospered and upon
which our present society rests, there is
general agreement. Yet, to prove that
security, faith and peace, products of the
home, church and school, have grown to
any appreciable degree would be contra-
dicted by the events not only of the past
but the present.
The Greeks, developing a civilization
whose literature, philosophy, and art have
never been surpassed fell by the wayside.
The Romans, a practical, unimaginative,
executive type of people, contributing the
fundamentals of our legal system, suffered
a similar fate. Indeed, the Greeks and
Romans must have perished had not Chris-
tianity come to energize and save them.
The task which Christianity performed
cannot be measured. History reveals that
as the Greeks and Romans were being con-
verted, great hordes from the north, the
Barbarians, had to be conquered and civ-
ilized. So great and destructive were
these invasions that the priceless gifts, the
home, church and school all but ceased to
exist. Finally there came a renaissance,
and construction in place of destruction
began to control men's minds and souls.
Today finds these institutions as well
as all other institutions called to account.
The entire world seems torn by strife and
dissension, surely not a gift or the will
of the Gods. No, slowly yet surely we are
admitting that greed, vice, and selfishness
in some form of material personal gain
was the thought uppermost in our minds.
The schools taught it, thinking somehow
that materialism was the whole gain, the
end in itself. Today we not only see the
errors of our ways but are attempting to
correct them. The problems are as gi-
gantic as those of the dark ages, as vast
as humankind itself. Let the courage 'and
faith that prompted our ancestors of old
to fight for the principles, beliefs 'and
practices which have made these institu-
tions honored and respected rise again
Let us finally remember that these re-
spected and revered institutions are ex-
ponents of the philosophy which recog-
nizes that human progress rests upon gen-
eral education as its greatest constructive

SENIORS WEIGH MERITS AS END APPROACHES
Class Undaunfed by Handicaps Anficipafe Successful Future
As the end of our school career is fast approaching,
we have experienced both difficulties and pleasures
together, are better able to appreciate the unlimited
opportunities and aversions that the divine powers
have seen fit to bestow upon us during those four short
years that must now come to a conclusion. Thus
we wonder if in our endeavors we have succeeded in
broadening our mental horizon so as to have more
firmly established a foundation upon which our in-
dividual abilities and faculties might be more fully
developed since we first started our journey as Fresh-
Having met the sufficient requirements we proudly
bore the name Sophomores, still little realizing the
seriousness of such an undertaking as was ahead of us.
just as nations are classified according to their ad-
vancement in civilization, the same holds true with
Now being more capable of visualizing the future
we become juniors. This year proved a tremendous
one and we thus adapted ourselves to being held re-
sponsible, assisting with the annual Junior Senior
Banquet for our comrades who were about to start
their journey upon the Highway of Life. Then too,
our play entitled "Clarence" well merits mention
since fortunately it met with such profound approval.
As we look back upon the past three years it is with
happy buoyancy, nothing to detract from our mutual
happiness except the regret that some of our Wayfar-
ers have not seen fit to complete the journey with us.
Perhaps such was not the will of the Supreme Being
or it was merely their personal neglect, but may they
too succeed in their life's work.
As we gained admittance into our Senior year we
were aware of the numerous duties it held for us, but
we realized we must put forth our best efforts and
master that which comes our way, regardless of its
difficulty and the reward we will receive in return.
The most outstanding project of this year was the
annual publication of "The Mirror" and it is with
greater disappointments, demanding more strenuous
cooperation than ever before that it has been made
possible, due to the hnancial crisis. With the guid-
ance and advice of Miss Burns, our advisor, we have
been able to succeed in such an accomplishment and
the Class of '33 extends its sincere appreciation to her.
Our journey draws to a close, our goal has been
reached and the time has come to bid adieu to M. H. S.
Thus we leave it to the oncoming conquestors to fill
our place and may we go our separate ways always
doing justice to the standards of our motto, "Nothing
Without Divine Guidance."

WINNERS OF SCHOLASTIC HONCDRS
All members of our class have been giv-
en the power to reason and think. Some
have used this gift and have developed it
in such a way that they have excelled
their fellows. Needless to say, the cease-
less efforts of these students have neces-
sitated that they be duly recognized.
Their predominant characteristics of be-
ing able to perceive the deeper things has
given them outstanding significance.
Their courage, perseverance, and intel-
lectual abilities have accorded them befit-
ting honors. Those who have excelled in
the arts of learning have taken advantage
of the little things in life. They have
improved every opportunity which has
faced them and have even made oppor-
tunities come to them. Always they have
had a burning zeal to increase their scope
of learning. They have acquired the abil-
ity to solve the most disturbing difficul-
ties and problems of life.
Because they have broadened their
minds, they have challenged the admira-
tion of their classmates. All have cov-
eted their conspicuous ascendancy above
their fellowmen, but they have reached
this pinnacle only through diligence and
It is only fitting that those who have
attained the highest standards of educa-
tion should be awarded for their unceas-
ing energy-thus we dedicate to them
POSTGRADUATES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DEPRESSION
Although the post graduate is the small-
est department in our school, it is perhaps
one of the most important. After we
leave high school we sometimes hnd it
necessary to wait for a year before we
can enter college or pursue our life's work.
Taking a post graduate course is one way
of making the most of this time. All
departments in our school are open to
these students and so anyone can select
work which will help them to be a success
in their chosen field.

JUNIORS TAKE INVEN-
TORY OF ASSETS TO
Prepare Elaborafe Farewell for
Class of '33
The realization that certain
ones of us have special abili-
ties came to us, even before
we entered High School-
when we were confronted
with the problem of choosing
a course of study. Having
carefully considered our in-
dividual abilities, as well as
our deficiencies, we started
into High School with lofty
hopes and ambitions. Our
first year was mostly one of
introduction and adaptation
to the new ways of higher ed-
ucation. We soon realized
that if we were to continue
for the remaining three years,
hard work and perseverance
Not until the Sophomore
year did we begin to realize
the true value of the training
which we were receiving ev-
ery day and to gain an impres-
sion of the seriousness of
high School work. XVhenever
a problem confronted us, our
helpful advisor, Miss West,
who had been our guide in
our freshman year as well, was
always on hand with a timely
word of advice. We closed
our Sophomore year with
eighty-six of the original one
hundred and five.
And now we are the Junior
Class. Happily, we still have
with us our desires. Two
years of hard work have not
dulled our determination to
reach our goal.
This season has brought
with it a greater burden of
work and responsibility than
we had known in former
years. However, we were
fortunate to have as our
friend and helper, Mr. Faben,
who we chose as our advisor.
His ready encouragement and
advice have been a great fac-
tor in our welfare. Under his
leadership we have carried
through a number of success-
ful enterprises, the most out-
standing of which was the
qlunior-Senior banquet at the
close of the year. Another
important project was the
Class play, a comedy-drama
entitled "Widow by Proxy."
Besides these, we have spon-
sored a candy sale, a movie,
and a bake sale.
One more year of High
School remains to us. Then
we must regretfully close this
period of our life and go out
to face the world with the
gifts God has given us. If we
have done our best in these
four years to develop our tal-
ents to the utmost, success
will then await us.

Many Scholasfic Honors Won
We, the sophomores, as a
class have little history, and
what there is seems very or-
dinary and perhaps slightly
monotonous. We entered el-
ementary schoolg we entered
junior high, We graduated,
we entered high school. Yet
this covers one of the most im-
portant periods of our lives.
We are building a foundation
for the future. We, like dia-
monds, are being cut. The
faculty is attempting to bring
forth the best in us and to dis-
card the rest.
We are young, we are un-
polishedg we are a long way
from being educated. It is
true that our high school ca-
reer is half over, but there is
far more to education than
earning a high school diplo-
ma. The name commence-
ment was wisely chosen for it
marks the commencement of
our education. The first
eighteen years of our lives are
merely preparation, after
those the true training of our
mental faculties begins. It is
then we enter the world as in-
dividuals and it is then we are
classified. We may be dia-
monds or stones of lesser or
even inferior quality. We are
no longer judged by what we
did in the past but by what
the past did to us. Did it
teach us to be reliant, ener-
getic and honest, or did it
teach us to use as little am-
bition and as much of our past
record as possible? Of course
natural ability enters into this,
but without the proper back-
ground and without the prop-
er development it is next to
We cannot all be geniuses,
that is not human nature, but
we can all be successful. Suc-
cess is not holding a high po-
sition and earning a large
wageg it is the realization of
your ideal, and even more
than that, contentment. Our
purpose is to make an ideal,
no matter how lowly, and to
realize it, for, "He can who
thinks he can."
Our ideals will varyg our
positions in life will vary.
Some who are outstanding in
their classes and in school ac-
tivities may be experiencing
the only limelight they will
ever know, while those who
are now in the background
will rise to the heights. Time
alone can tell.
This all goes to prove that
the formative period through
which we are now passing is
of little importance to our
future success or failure, ex-
cept as a base upon which to
build, and in any structure
what is more essential than
the base? Hence it is neces-
sary to obtain sufficient edu-
cation so that when we go
into the world we shall have
something with which to
start, a foundation on which
to build. It is preparation
plus aptitude that marks the
genius. Therefore it is our
duty to ourselves to make this
preparation as complete as
we are qualified to do.

MORE AND MORE THE
NEED OF HIGHER
Varied Aciiviiy of High School
Life Proves lnieresfing
Genius is present in every
school, in every group, and in
every individual of that
Every year new Freshmen
have been entering the school,
bringing with them new tal-
ents and making them known
in a new atmosphere. They
had been developed and prac-
ticed in the eight years in Ele-
mentary school, which led
them to the point whereby
they might be able to advance
through four more years of
labor in high school.
Thus far, in our High
School career we have discov-
ered many who will become
leaders in their particular
field, with but little help on
the part of teachers and fel-
This year, as well as other
years, the gods have descended
and distributed fine gifts
among our Freshmen stu-
dents. There are various
types of genius- mental,
physical, mechanical and oth-
ers. Some enter the athletic
field, while others take up
musical and literary studies.
The Freshman Class has
been well represented in all
activities and forms an im-
portant body in all of the
clubs and societies. Two
members of our class received
distinction when they were
awarded football letters. One
was as highly honored, receiv-
ing a basket ball letter. It is
no wonder that we are proud
of our athletic ability and feel
honored to be members of thc
class of which these students
are a part.
At the present time, the
class as a whole is leaning to-
ward science. Several of our
classmates have advanced in-
to this study with great zeal
and are making considerable
progress. As this is an age of
scientific development, we
feel their ability will be a
great advantage to them.
Our schools today give the
student an opportunity to
take up any line of study he
may so desire and thus de-
velop his special talent or
genius, instead of being forced
to take up a few selected
Some possess a great many
talents and others iust a few
perhaps only one, but all can
develop these talents so as to
make their lives worth-while.
All are endowed by the gods
with some genius.

HI-Y ORGANIZATION OFFERS FINE TRAINING TO
BOYS OF HIGH SCHOOL
50 Boys Avail Themselves of Religious Culture
Character, directly or indirectly be-
comes the fundamental block in the con-
struction of every individual human
frame. Upon this block other character-
istics are molded in the sense of a deriva-
tive. The stimulant produced through
the laying of such a cornerstone regu-
lates the efficiency of the structure and
likewise determines the individual's pos-
Through this medium of understanding
the Hi-Y has attempted to moderate the
jeopardous life of a high school boy.
ln analyzing this primary block of the
foundation there are found simple yet
vital contents: clean speech, clean sports-
manship, clean scholarship, and clean liv-
ing. Each one individually or coopera-
tively endeavoring to create, maintain, and
extend throughout the school and com-
munity high standards of Christian
The Hi-Y contributes an interesting
program each year within and outside of
the organization. In cooperation with the
Girl Reserves they sponsored the annual
"Girl Reserve-Hi-Yi' mixer in the audi-
torium and gym.
One aim of the Hi-Y is to send as large
a delegation as possible each year to Camp
Nelson Dodd and to the Older Boy's Con-
ference, which was held this year at Co-
lumbus, Ohio. These two conferences
perhaps, do more to connect the youth to
his problems and to Christianity than any
other branch of the Hi-Y.
Elwin Ritchey and Eugene Kimmel
were sent to Camp Nelson Dodd during
the summer of '32 where they enjoyed
camp life and took part in helpful dis-
This same work is carried on at the
yearly "Older Boys' Conference" where
we were represented this year by Millard
jackson, Don Neff, Paul Bowers, Burton
Blue, and Lowell Martin. Hundreds of
boys from every section of the state pre-
sent their problems at this conference, and
then relay them to their club, thus intro-
ducing new methods of correct living and
acquaintance with God.

GIRL RESERVES DEVELOP A SPIRIT OF FRIENDSHIP AND
May Fine Cercease of Care in Religious Ac'rivi'Iy
Before we may have the beautiful
sparkling gems, whose richness beams forth
to all, we must cut and polish them to a
Each year the Girl Reserve Organiza-
tion goes through the process of polishing
and shining a group of these precious
stones until their radiance of friendship,
beauty, dependability, graciousness, good
judgment, service, high ideals, and Rev-
erence to God is seen by all.
During the past year a great number
of these stones in the making have entered
our circle, some have not been polished to
their highest extent, while others have
been more successful, participating in the
many activities of the Club.
At Thanksgiving and Christmas they
worked with the Red Cross in helping
those less fortunate than themselves, dress-
ing dolls for little girls who may some-
time become jewels in this same Club.
Together with the Hi-Y they sponsored
a beautiful Easter Chapel Program, and
the Girl Reserve-Hi-Y Mixer for the
Freshman at Halloween.
At the end of the year a Mother-Daugh-
ter reception was held. A farewell to the
seniors, as they were sent forth to spread
and keep their high ideals wherever they
may be in life.
Our sessions are di-
vided into three parts,
that of Devotion,
Business, and Social.
We endeavor to plan
a discussion, for each
the problems every
girl must face, and
to bring a challenge
to them for better

The Annual Board has one sole purpose and that
is to-produce a yearbook which contains school
life and happenings. Every senior has a certain
particular duty and when each has been completed
the book fits together like .1 eloek. The students
not only have enjoyment in producing such a
project but also derive many educational benefits.
It takes leadership, managing, sacrificing, planning
and plenty of good hard honest work. The class
of '33 was very fortunate in being endowed with
such types of people from which there could be
chosen persons which could assume the responsi-
bility of such important positions. But due to the
fact that it was very diflieult to secure funds we
were able to receive an overwhelming number of
wonderful ideas of which we were unable to place
into our yearbook.
A wail and cry was heard not only from seniors
but the maiority of the public as well. W'e thought
that we needed to continue this worthy activity,
that memories which prove so interesting to every
mind might not be lost. So many demands were
made that school authorities deemed it necessary
to continue this project.

La+in S+uden+s Appreciafe Srudy of Dead Language
Our Latin League was formed eleven
years ago for the purpose of accentuating
our interests along this line, and possibly
to make our work a little more interest-
ing. To the majority of us our monthly
meetings prove inadequate, for the time
is insufficient to enable us to accomplish
our work to its utmost capacity.
Several generations ago the classics,
Greek and Latin, formed the basis for the
high school curriculum. For numerous
reasons Greek has gradually been excluded,
but the study of Latin has so many inter-
esting divisions that it is not difficult to
understand why it has held its popularity
in the prescribed courses of study through-
out the years. There are tales of virtue,
loyalty, self-sacrifice, courage and ro-
mance to interest every age.
One of the greatest geniuses in our
course of study is the Roman, Cato, who
was the censor and guardian of public
morals, Caesar, whose genius lay in the
leading of men, is another of the interest-
ing figures we study. He edited the first
form of newspaper nearly 2,659 years ago,
and because of his genius became the fore-
most man of his time and an outstanding
character for posterity.
Besides giving a cultured background
Latin is the language on which all the
sciences are based. Since it is a dead lan-
guage, and cannot be changed, its funda-
mentals are used in medicine, zoology,
astronomy, biology and many others. It
is also the basis for all the romantic lan-
guages, which, because of our rapidly
growing commercial Contact with these
countries, is becoming immensely im-
Under the able direction of our ad-
visor, Miss Richey, we have completed
another very successful year, and hope
she may remain to continue her inspira-
tional guidance of our Latin League Club.

enrollment of forty-five, which convenes
every third Thursday in the month, under
the supervision of our most capable lead-
er, Miss Weekly.
The aims of the organization are many.
Perhaps the greatest is to develop latent
talents. Our various abilities are never
known until they are tried, and the Lit-
erary Society provides an opportunity for
this test. When the talents are discov-
ered, they are developed.
Another aim of this society is to create
a love of arts. Various selections of liter-
ature are studied. We also become better
acquainted with the musical and theatri-
cal world. The most important works of
art are studied.
The Literary Society replaces the little
theater movements found in the colleges
and universities. An opportunity is also
given to develop one's forensic powers.
The programs this year have been va-
ried. A review of Shakespeare's "King
Lear" was given and a portion of it was
dramatized. "Italian Literature" was the
theme of the Chapel Program sponsored
by the Literary Society. There was an
interesting debate-Resolved: "That Mod-
ern Machinery is the Cause of the Present
Day Depression." At our last meeting we
discussed 'iGreat Figures of the Stagef'
Our future programs will be devoted to
the study of the great works of art and
the World's Fair at Chicago.
Many benefits are derived from the Lit-
erary Society. One of these is poise.
There are instances in everyone's life when
he must meet the situation face to face
and in the proper manner. One must
possess this quality in order to be a suc-
cess. This organization enables the stu-
dent to overcome timidity by having him
speak and appear before his fellow stu-
Undoubtedly, the greatest benefit re-
ceived from the Literary Society is a de-
sire for more knowledge. It promotes the
use of correct English, encourages learn-
ing, and creates a love for literature and

SPRING BRINGS MEDLEY OF WARBLERS
Blending of Tones Proves Fascina+ing +o Girls
Many, many ages have past and gone in
which music has been the most important
factor in the history of man. God has
intended this masterful talent to be the
purest of fine arts and to be recognized as
such among the many people in this vast
world of ours.
The Girl's Glee Club has very willingly
given their choral ability to the pleasure
of all those who are lovers of music.
Under capable supervision we have in-
creased our repertoire, with new and in-
teresting songs. W'e have learned to de-
velop expressions, to use our voices cor-
rectly and to appreciate classical Music.
We entered the 1932 Annual County
Contest well represented. The alto so-
loist, singing "Pirates Dreams" won hrst
place. The girls quartet rendered a num-
ber for the Community Institute, which
was received by an appreciative audience.
Various other public appearances have
created interest and enthusiasm.
Arrangements are in progress for a pro-
gram to be broadcast over station WOWO,
Fort XX'ayne. We also are preparing for
the 1933 Annual County Contest in which
we hope to retain our former standards.
Few realize the value of the cultivation
of music and it is our desire to bring be-
fore our public its real worth. Music
tends to brighten the deepest feelings of
sorrow and loneliness. It depicts for each
and everyone of us a sweeter and more
glorious world in which to live.
Wfithout this source of genius so nec-
essary, we might consider ourselves with-
out life-long friends that we need.
XVe're hoping to acquire greater perfec-
tion, in that we might be a greater asset
to our school.

MUSIC PROVES WORTH WHILE RECREATION
Glee Club Makes Tremendous Sfride During Currenf Year
In order to be cultured one must have
a true appreciation of the arts, one of the
most expressive of which is music. To
instill this appreciation in its members is
the primary object of the Boys Glee Club.
To really appreciate good music it is not
necessary to be an artist yourself, but a
ground work of practical understanding
will tend to create an admiration for the
work of real artists. In the Glee Club, the
fundamentals of harmony and expression
are stressed. Every great musician at some
time in his career was affiliated with a
group of musicians, either vocal or instru-
mental. This organization may be the
birthplace of a musical genius, so its ef-
forts are not in vain.
The Boy's Glee Club has been in ex-
istence for a number of years, being hrst
organized in 1924 under the direction of
Miss Dorthy Cozad. For the last several
years the organization has been dormant,
but this year it staged a remarkable re-
incarnation under the able supervision of
Miss Lattanner. The membership in-
creased by a large per cent and a novel
organization plan was innovated. A
president, secretary and librarian were
chosen. The president has charge of all
executive duties, the secretary checks the
attendance, and the librarian cares for the
music. The plan has worked very well
and brought order out of chaos. Under
such a plan and leadership future Glee
Clubs should make a fine display of har-
The members of the Club have shown
remarkable talent for the short time spent
on voice culture. It is unfortunate that
the Montpelier High School does not enter
the Literary Contest held throughout the
county. I am sure that through the com-
bined efforts of the Boy's and Girl's Glee
Clubs many prizes and trophies could be
won. This would serve to intensify the
interest shown in this work. Many stu-
dents who do not care for athletics would
wish to enter this field.
To Miss Lattanner's untiring efforts our
success is due. She has been patient with
us when most directors would have given
up in despair. Her remarkable musical
ability and choice of selections served to
make the Glee Club rise from its lethargy
and give it added impetus.
The Glee Club has appeared in several
programs and in conjunction with the
Girl's Glee Club has offered a musicale.
Each time favorable comment was be-
stowed upon them. The prospects are
very bright for talent the coming year
and the Boy's Glee Club should surely be
one of the most active school organizations.

MONTPELIER BAND NEEDED ASSET IN COMMUNITY
, Broadcasts Over WOWO
There are many different types of
genius which can be bestowed upon us,
but no other can be more beneficial than
that of music. God has given us music
to enable us to see the sunny side of life
and forget our troubles.
Six years ago Mr. C. C. Broderick started
with an unexperienced group of students,
and in a few years has perfected their
playing until they have developed into one
of the best bands in Northwestern Chic.
Although they have dwindled in num-
bers, their programs are welcomed by all
and the citizens of Montpelier should be
proud of such a fine group. Last Septem-
ber they en-
tered the Pub-
lic School Con-
test at Angola,
this event they
win first prize
placed second. Later they broadcasted
over WOXVO, Fort Wayne. This was
their third program from this station.
Much of the success of the organization
may be contributed to the Montpelier Band
Association, which was organized a year
ago last June, and has proven to be a
worthy idea. It has solved all problems
pertaining to the band, one of the most
important being the financial question.
It has also provided the band with social
entertainment which had made their
work more pleasant.
We can readily agree that a band is of
much value to a community. Conse-
quently all should be willing to contribute
their share to its maintenance.
The Junior Band which was organized
over a year ago has made rapid progress.
It was able to secure second place in the
junior Band contest at Angola, after a few
months practice. The members of the
Senior Band wish Mr. Broderick all the
success possible with his new students.
We also appreciate his untiring devotion
in devleoping what little genius of music
we may possess.

MANY TAKE ADVANTAGE GF ORCHESTRA TRAINING
More Sfring lnsfrumenfs Needed
Music has for centuries played an im-
portant part in the course of human des-
tinies. It was popular in Bible times both
as a recreation to afford relaxation and to
soothe tired nerves. But the harmonious
combination of many and varied instru-
ments is a comparatively new idea which
Handel did much to develop.
This type of organization has entered
the public schools and affords fellowship
and training to those who are musically
inclined, besides bringing enjoyment to
the general public. Special instructors are
engaged to develop other Gifts of the Gods
and though Miss Lattanner is a new teach-
er in our ranks the twenty members of
the orchestra have done well under her
The half hour period every Tuesday was
devoted to practice and eagerly welcomed
by the orchestra. Training of the mind
and hands are not the only advantages
gained here but again burdens are lifted
and hearts sing as of ages ago. On Wed-
nesday mornings the orchestra furnished
music for our chapel programs.
More students seem to have taken ad-
vantage of the opportunity to join our
worthy organization this year than ever
before, thus benefiting both themselves
as individuals and the school as a unit.
junior High is also represented here and
we wonder why more from our own build-
ing do not recognize the golden oppor-
tunity offered them to become members,
especially those who play the stringed in-
struments so sadly needed here.

FUTURE NEEDS ANTICIPATED BY CULINARY ART CLASS
Spend Much Time Masfering Social E+ique++e
The Theta Epsilon Club has been a very
important part of our high school curricu-
lum for ten years and we feel that it is
a very worthy organization.
Not every girl is gifted with the art of
sewing and cooking, therefore they feel it
necessary to take a course in home eco-
Cooking is in the course for Sopho-
mores. It is said that, "the nearest way to
a man's heart is through his stomach."
Take heed, girls, some day you might want
to know how to cook. XVC learned the
fundamentals of cooking but there are
many other things to know as proper table
settings for different occasions.
Along with our two classes, we felt
that we needed a club organization. So
the Theta Epsilon has continued to live,
proving that it is a success.
Our program at each meeting is educa-
tional as well as entertaining. A great
deal of our time was spent in discussing
etiquette of school functions and dances.
The questions asked were perhaps very
amusing, yet, at the same time a great
help. lt is the smaller things that count
as well as the larger ones where etiquette
Some people are so gifted as to know
how much to say and at the right time.
Others unfortunately do not. We all
gained a great deal from these questions
and discussions on etiquette.
XVe regret that we do not have more
time in school for this subject because it
is of great value and very interesting.
Our advisor, Miss Townsend, proved to
be a very efficient and capable directress
of the Theta Epsilon throughout the

RURAL NEEDS ARE SCIENTIFICALLY DEVELOPED
Numerous Proiec+s Promoted
Every person is endowed by their Creator with
a certain task to perform and whether this be
great or small he should catch the spark which
will enable hiin to go ahead and study this vo-
cation that he might give his best.
ln the past, farming has been considered as a
work that docs not ned much education but the
increase in population and of city dwellers has ne-
cessitated the use of more scientihc methods. The
farm problem is becoming more complex and the
need of educated men in this field is necessary.
lt is with good purpose that vocational agricul-
ture has been adopted in the curriculum of the
high schools. It enables those boys who are in-
terested along this line to get training and ideas
which are of great value to them when they begin
work for themselves. In addition to learning to
do things pertaining to farm life. a spirit of in-
dividualism is created, they learn to cooperate with
others, and a desire for reading articles along
this line is formed.
The Future Farmers organization meets on the
th Thursday of every month. At this time they
discuss problems confronting them or if fortu-
nate in obtaining a speaker listen to his message.
The new members are taken in as Green Hands
and are made Future Farmers the second year.

PLAY PROMINENT PART IN SCHOOL LIFE
Mr. Alfaffer Sfimulafes lnferesl in Many Ways
It still continues to be a disturbing
problem to many that every child physi-
cally able must be required to take ninety
minutes of athletic training per week.
just how many of these parents are
aware that during the War our nation
was found deplorably weak in physical
strength, and if this were true, need it
not be stressed that the oncoming gen-
eration certainly needs exercise iitted to
develop this weakness.
This department provides for the de-
velopment of talent hitherto unseen. The
work consists of gym work, interclass
basket ball, tumbling and other indoor
work. In this work you are able to de-
velop your body to a healthy status and
thereby increase your mental capacity.

between teams that are chosen in each
class. Those who rate highest in their
respective classes are to compete in a con-

SOCIAL CALENDAR BRILLIANT WITH MANY EVENTS
Frolic and Fun Prevail in M. H. S.
"The old adage all
work and no play
makes Jack a dull boy,"
cannot be said of our
student group this
year, for in these most
critical times, we have
been able to cast our
cares to the winds and
enjoy the festivities.
Welcome Freshmen! Early in the year
the Girl Reserves and Hi-Y clubs sponsored
the annual mixer, and happily welcomed
into our midst our incoming classmates.
Imagine the curiosity and excitement of all
attending when they suddenly discovered
that they were to be entertained in a broad-
casting studio by the many favorite stars
of the air! The impersonations were ren-
dered by Mary Alys Roode as Kate Smith,
Roger Hodson as Bing Crosby, who very
ably waved the baton to the rhythm of
his Freshmen orchestra of lids, pans and
toy pianos. The McCrea sisters favored
us with a vocal duet, after which Ted Ihrig
as Uncle Neil took charge of the Birthday
Club. Then Joyce Butler, Jack Moran
and other Seniors, precented a dramatiza-
tion of "Rip Van Winkle," which took us
back to the Revolutionary days of a home
with a lazy man and a furious wife. Later,
in the gymnasium, a delicious luncheon
was served while an orchestra rendered
music for dancing.
In December, the football boys were
amply rewarded for their untiring efforts
on the gridiron. Led by the coaches and
faculty one and all appeared upon the scene
and took their places at the beautifully
decorated tables. The most unique phase
of the evening was the eats-chicken, po-
tatoes, Florida sweets, gravy, pie and
A Wedding Parfy
All Montpelier was excited when Mr.
Faben returned to resume his school teach-
ing, accompanied by his new bride. They
were most delightfully entertained by the
Swansons at a "wedding-bridge" and were
the recipients of a useful gift.
Faculfy Enferfains Newlyweds
An Alumnus returned to our school as
one of our teachers. In November, he re-
alized the need of a helpmate and took unto
himself a wife. An enjoyable party was
given in their honor at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Hosler and a beautiful gift was
Lafin League Parfy
The Latin League Club was delightfully
received by the Freshmen on March 6. The
program took us back to those Roman
days when Pyramus was courting the love-
ly Thisbe. The play was well presented
and the surroundings and atmosphere com-
bined to make the scene very impressive.
Then musical strains were heard and all
enjoyed the dance. A delicious lunch was
served at the end of an evening filled with
The Seniors were sumptuously enter-
tained at a party given by the losing side of
a Mirror Contest. We were conducted to
the gym where beautifully set tables in
keeping with St. Patrick's Day were pre-
pared for the guests. An excellent chop
suey dinner was served. After the dinner,
swaying partners replaced the tables and
chairs and those who did not care to dance
indulged in the famous jig-saw. The clock
struck the hour of parting and we depart-
ed with never to be forgotten memories.
A most glorious night of happiness! A
heaven of dreams! An earth of gladness
and joy! Surroundings as of Egypt! Dain-
ty frocks on dainty girls with all colors of
the rainbow. We were very graciously led
to the gymnasium where the soft lights re-
flected beautiful decorations on the tables
that were so artistically set. No one with
any sense of wonderment could help but
look with bewilderment at the decorations
which were made by the hands of the Jun-
iors, which shows very keenly their am-
bidexterity. Delicious food that just
melted in our mouths was prepared by the
Junior mothers. After the dinner the
tables were removed, chords of music call-
ing for us to dance were heard.
Each year the Girl Reserve Club spon-
sors a formal reception for their Mothers.
A beautiful and im-
pressive service is plan- ,
ned, when girls not yet
members are initiated
into the club. During
the service our advisor
award the emblem to

"For what is your life" was the text chosen by
Rev. Clay to bring a very inspiring and helpful
message to the student body. Several striking
thoughts were that each person is responsible for
his own work and life. No one makes mistakes
wilfully. Be sure you are right, then go ahead.
Be honest and trustworthy, follow the eternal
truths that are set examples. Heed not to tempta-

mankind, we must follow the divine teachings of

last tribute to a class which was so endowed with
