THIS IS AN AGE OF PROGRESS IN MANY
FIELDS INCLUDING EDUCATION. IN THE
PAST PROGRESS HAS BEEN SHOWN IN OUR
SCHOOLS IN MANY WAYS. THIS YEAR,
HOWEVER, THE CONSTRUCTION OF A MOD-
ERN GRADE BUILDING OPENS FOR US A NEW
ERA OF PROGRESS.
THE STAFF OF THE I939 "INDIANIAN,"
WHEN SEARCHING FOR A PHYSICAL SYM-
BOL OF THIS SPIRIT OF PROGRESS, COULD
FIND NOTHING SO APPROPRIATE AS THE
RADIO. THUS, THE RADIO WAS CHOSEN
FOR THE THEME OF THE I939 YEARBOOK.

-THE SENIOR CLASS OF l939
ig gfocwlcadf of 39
This, my Triends, is a broadcasT
From The Class oT '39.
And since iT's To be The lasT one,
We wanT iT To be Tine.
We seniors have The hardesT Times
OT anyone in school.
We work and slave
And Try To behave:
Our Time we musT noT Tool.
ln agriculTure The boys learn how
To reap and sow The seed.
They musT waTch The crop,
So iT won'T be a "flop,"
And hoe ouT every weed.
And when iT comes To Civics Class
WiTh all Those horrid TesTs,
We heave a sigh
And say, "Oh my,
These Teachers are such pesTsl"
And SaTeTy Class is noT so safe
As iT's "cracked up" To be:
We all musT beware
For erasers in air
Make a "Shiner" noT lovely To see.
BuT Public Speaking Class, you see,
Makes up Tor all These woes:
lT's The liveliesT class,
YeT The hardesT To pass,
For we musT always be up on our Toes.
When we come ouT wiTh The band To sTruT,
Across The baskeTball Tloor,
All eyes are Turned,
WiTh envy They're burned,
And we hear whispered commenTs galore!
The Library is supposed To be
The quieTesT place in school,
YeT a mouse one day
To The desk did sTray,
Making Walker TorgeT ThaT rule.
IT The Senior boys are looking Tor wives,
To Home Ec. class They go:
The girls are good cooks
And noT bad Tor looks,
BuT They're always aTTer The "dough."
Well, This concludes The broadcasT,
Once more iT comes To an end.
We all haTe To leave,
BUT iT's no use To grieve
For we have made many a Triend.

MONTPELIER TEAM EKES OUT
VICTORY IN CLOSING
SCORE WAS 32 TO 31
Double Foul Shooting in Closing
Seconds Put Pacers in
Montpelier's tall, veteran Pacers eked
out a hardfought 32-31 victory over
Coach Joly Barr's up and coming Aire-
dale outfit in a thrill packed opening
game before a packed house in the new
gym here Tuesday evening.
Hitting consistently from all angles
of the court, the Pacers had complete
command of the situation up until the
closing minutes when the fighting Aire-
dales made a gallant rally to overcome
what was once a ten-point lead and send
a crowd of some 2,000 into a frenzy.
Well earned as the Montpelier victory
was, the Hartford City fans were sent
away with no regrets for they saw the
smaller Black and Gold forces go down
fighting to the last ditch.
Trailing once by a 27-17 count, in the
last quarter the Airedales made a great
rally to go to the front with a 31-30
lead with a minute and a half left to
play only to see it wiped out in the
closing seconds by a bit of steel nerved
foul pitching by Evers, blond headed
Montpelier forward. With the crowd
howling to the high heavens at his back,
the Montpelier veteran toed the foul
line with victory or defeat in his hands
and nonchalantly swished both tosses
through the net to give his team the
final 32-31 margin.
So great was the frenzy in those
closing minutes that the ofiicials had to
call a halt to the game at one time be-
cause their whistles could not be heard
above the tumult.
First Defeat At
Albany Sat. Night
A capacity crowd of 320 people Wit-
nessed the first defeat of the year for
the Pacers Saturday night by the Al-
bany team on their fioor. The Pacers
were handicapped to a certain extent, as
they were playing for the first time this
year on a small floor like Albany's.
Montpelier Pacers were unusually un-
lucky on their basket hitting and lacked
the drive to penetrate the defense of
the Albany team.

MONTPELIER WON EASY OPENER
AT BIG FOUR TOURNEY BY
THE SCORE OF 33 TO 25
Montpelier was most fortunate in
drawing the Roll Red Rollers for the
opening tilt of the tourney held Satur-
day afternoon. Although many of the
fans felt that the opening game was
somewhat one sided as Roll had failed
to win any victories during the entire
season while Montpelier had only suf-
fered one defeat, that by Albany on
Montpelier played to the largest
crowd ever to witness the afternoon
session of the Big Four Tourney in this
city Saturday afternoon. The game
started very slow but became more in-
teresting as it progressed. Montpelier
was the first to score when Markley hit
a tip-in shot to put the Pacers in the
lead. Roll then hit to tie the score and
went into the lead on a shot by H.
Johnson. Yates increased the lead for
Roll when he hit one from the side of
the Hoor followed rapidly by H. Johnson.
Speece connected for Montpelier and
Pugh hit a charity toss to bring the
Pacers within one point of Roll.
Pierce then hit a basket at the free
throw line to give Roll a three point
lead, but Markley hit two charity tosses
to end the scoring for the quarter. Roll
8, Montpelier 7.

MONTPELIER TEAM VICTORIOUS
OVER DUNKIRK FOR FIRST
TIME IN 13 GAMES
The Montpelier Pacers defeated the
Dunkirk Speedcats in the most thrilling
game of the season Frdiay night at the
local gym when they stood off a last
quarter drive led by Hatch, speedy for-
ward of Dunkirk. Montpelier opened
the scoring when Roger Speece counted
the first basket of the game. Hare
scored the first basket for the Dunkirk
team, then Bremmer hit a charity toss
to put Dunkirk ahead for the only time
that they were ever in the lead. Mark-
ley then countered with two charity
tosses to put Montpelier back in the
lead and from then on led the entire
Be Praised For
FANS SHOULD REFRAIN FROM
CONDEMNING TEAM FOR LOSS
AT TOURNEY. WON 16, LOST 7
Since the sectional tourney many
comments have been heard around the
various business places as well as on
the streets, 3 few of which have praised
the members of the basketball team,
while others have been nothing but con-
demnation for losing the sectional. How-
ever, there is no team found anywhere
that is not subject to criticism when it
It might be well for some of the fans,
who have resorted to nothing but criti-
cism, to take a few moments to review
the record of the Pacers during the sea-
son just closing. They have won a total
of 16 games and have lost only seven.
This is a fine record and the boys have
3, right to expect praise for it, as this is
the best record that has been made for
several years, if not the best. The next
highest record was that of 15 games
won in 1927.
One of the outstanding and most gra-
tifying results of this year is that the
Pacers were able to defeat the Hartford
City Airedales this year as well as last,
making two consecutive years that the
Pacers have defeated their most bitter
rivals. This fact alone should be worth
praise for the Pacers. We all agree that
the outcome at the sectional might have
been better and that we all would have
appreciated a sectional victory, but
such was not the case and the boys are
entitled to much credit for the entire
It is hard to tell what the team will
be next year as six of the first 10 play-
ers will graduate this year. A basketball
team cannot be made in a year or two
and the fans may be much more disap-
pointed next year than they have been
this year. The coach as well as the team
should receive the support of all fans
even though they suffered some defeats
which are certain to occur.
A part of the reason for the Pacers'
downfall at the sectional was that they
were playing without the services of
Sholty who was on the sick list and
Evers who saw little action due to a
previous illness. This alone might be
the reason for their defeat.
The upset experienced at Hartford
City by the Pacers was not the only one
in the sectionals held over the state, as
Huntingburg and Jefersonville were
picked as sectional winners, but both
were defeated. The fans should not con-
demn the Pacers too severely as they
no doubt did the best they could under

Ridgeville hit their stride and started
wearing the Pacers lead down to where
they were in shooting distance and at
the end of the third quarter the Pacers
held a margin of only two points, 23-21.
At the beginning of the final period
the Pacers lost Retz via the personal
foul route and from then on it was any-
body's game. Ridgeville tied the score
and then went into the lead with only
two minutes left to play.
Markley then hit one for the Pacers
and the score was tied, and with only 50
seconds left to play Dallas Cope tipped
one in for his team and went into the
lead, the Pacers tried hard to knot the
score but failed in a desperate attempt.

CHESTER DEFEATS ROLL IN CONSOLATION TILT
The Montpelier Pacers proved victors'
over the Pennville Bulldogs in the
championship game of the Blind Tour-
ney that was played at the local gym
Saturday night. This was the Pacers'
first victory since 1934 when they were
successful in defeating the Warren
team by the score of 21 to 19.
In many ways the Montpelier Pacers
were very fortunate in playing Penn-
ville for the championship game due to
the fact that the Bulldogs experienced
a hard-fought game in the afternoon
when they met Chester Center.
Although this was the championship
game, it was not the most outstanding
game of the tourney because the Penn-
ville-Chester game was much more
closely contested, having had the score
tied twice. The Pacers were never in
danger of losing this game from the
first quarter on to the finish.

CLOSE SUCCESSFUL SEASON BY
DEFEATING LIBERTY FOR
The Montpeier Pacers closed a Very
successful season Friday night in de-
feating the badly crippled Liberty Cen-
ter Lions in a rough and tumble game
by the score of 36-23.
The Liberty Center team came to this
city to play the Pacers without the use
of two of their regulars, Fiedler and
Johnston. The Liberty Lions grabbed
an early lead and it looked for a minute
as though there might be an upset. The
Pacers battled the Lions up to the very
last second of the quarter but were un-
able to overcome the lead they had
built. Lions 11, Pacers 9.
The Pacers came out for the second
quarter and regained their usual stride
and went on a scoring spree and were
ahead at the half, Pacers 20, Lions 13.
The Pacers had accomplished very much
by holding the Lions to a lone fielder
and garnering 11 points for themselves.

only two regulars in the lineup. The
two teams played on even terms the
early part of the quarter, but Warren

FRIDAY'S VICTORY WITH DE-
CISIVE SCORE OF 44 TO 30
The Pacers, back in their usual stride
Friday evening, defeated the Chester
Indians 44-30 on the Montpelier floor.
Both teams lost no timelin getting
started as each scored seven points in
the first minute of play. Each team
showed considerable scoring power in
the first quarter as the totals for both
teams came to 28. The Pacers led at
the quarter, 15-13.
The Pacers were wearing their new
socksg this is the first time the Pacers
have worn socks this year. The socks
set the Pacers off in fine style, and
make them one of the best dressed
teams in the state.
