It is our fondest hope that the officers, faculty and governesses will continue to advise, each knowing and appreciating the Worth of the other, and Wending their Way through the years to come, happy and contented in each other's company. We, the class of '29, graduate, recognizing the Value of our education, and appreciating our friends' kind assistance. THE RETROSPECT To Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Cortner We have had many teachers and friends, but valuable and kind as they were, none have ever done as much as you have done for us in starting us on the road to education. So as a token of our gratitude for your helpfulness, and also for your friendliness in the past year:-1, we dedicate this annual to you. 'Q' LQ lf il " 9 5, if -f ef . ..,- 41 l '3 4..

S HELEN CANAULTY MARGARET KELLEY THE RETROSPECT Class History In September, 1924, Freshmen, confident that they had developed about as much as they ever would, were given their place in the high school nursery. They were very green and were given great care by the teachers, but the older plants in the nursery paid little attention to the small seedlings, little knowing that they would some day be as valuable as they hoped to be. When the first year ended the Freshmen knew they had developed a little, but also knew they had more to learn. lluring the summer self-pruning took place. Several of the class deserted their niche in the nursery. However, this gave the remaining members ot' the class of '29 a better chance to develop since they had been crowded. At the end of the second year, the sturdy seedlings had developed suc- cessful Ca-sar and Geometry bearing twigs. Again pruning took place. Five boys left because they considered themselves able to get along without the aid of the caretakers. To the grief of all remaining, one ol' the most promising drowned. Another who wished to develop more rapidly left our group and joined the Senior class. As jolly Juniors we qualified as saplings. We had many scars: some left by history which showed development and maturing: some by English which gave us our exalted posi- tion, etc. In the Senior year, now young, but more sturdy saplings, we were transplanted to a new high school and were given new caretakers. The atmosphere was inspiring and today the saplings are to be again transplanted. It is to be hoped that we shall develop and prosper in our new location as well as we did in the old. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. Ten Years From N ofw It was one of those beautiful Spring days in May when one's mind Wants to Wander. I sat in the assembly gazing at my dignified Senior classmates, wondering of their future ten years from now. Then, very strange as it seems, my head nodded, and my eyes were closed in a deep slumber. Arising out of the mists of sleep, I was standing in a deep jungle in Africa surrounded by bushes. All at once a clump of bushes parted and a famil- iar figure stepped out. It was none other than "Bob" David- son. In his hand he held a large magnifying glass, and he ex- claimed, "At last I have found it!" Noticing me standing there he said, "Hello, Helen, I've found Apqrixyzifgm, an in- sect, for which botanists have been looking for centuries." You would have thought that I had been there with him for these past ten years. He then told me what he had been doing. Just as I Was about to relate my past the mist rolled up again and revealed a huge theatre in Europe. I Was pres- ent at one of the greatest operas in the world, and you could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw "Fat" Ray- nor Walk on the stage in a gorgeous gown. One of the most Wonderful solos I had ever heard was rendered. As the cur- tain Was drawn and the lights went on, the orchestra was heard playing softly, and, looking in the direction from which the music came, I noticed to my astonishment, that the direc- tor was none other than Lettie Mae Peele. After the opera was over I rushed back stage and embraced my old classmates. Mary told me how Lettie and she had started working as stenographers and had paid their Way through a Conservatory of Music. They invited me to come to their apartment. I accepted the invitation because I was anxious to know what had become of the rest of my class mates. We went outside THE RETROSPECT and were ushered into an aeroplane. The girls told me that Roberta Pierson and Martha Woodruff had bought the Rue de la Paix Tea Room in Paris, and that 'Mickey" Kelley, since she was so well known for her famous musical readings. was at the Tea Room to entertain on the opening night. I next asked about Quelda Frederick and Norma Fletcher. They told me that Quelda was Secretary of State at Washington. and that Norma was editor of the "New York Tribune." Mary told me that Charles Talbott had married one of the girls from the class of '30 about five years after he had finished school and was very happy. She said that she didn't know where "Jim" Godschalk was, but she knew that he was mar- ried. On arriving home, Lettie suggested going to the Rue de la Paix to see Roberta and Martha, since I was planning tore- turn to America the next day. Roberta and Martha were charming hostess at the Tea Room. Martha said that she had received a letter from Quelda who told her that "Jim" Gods- chalk had bought the Taggart Haking Company. I knew "Jim" would do something like that because he made such good bread when he worked in the bakery at the llome. That night as we were returning from the cabaret the chauffeur lost control of the aeroplane and CRASH!!! What was that?????? I started, raised my head, and looked around in a dazed way. Then everything came back to me. I gath- ered my books and went to my next class exclaiming, "Gee, I'm glad that was the buzzer calling me to class instead of an aeroplane accident." Helen Canaulty '29. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. Last Will and Testament I, Martha Woodruff, bequeath my art pencil to "Fish" Wilson providing he will make an A when his Book is com- pleted.

Will anyone ever forget our initiation into the Elite Club 1' We were the greenest of green freshies, and ate our appetizing wormsf '25 without a murmur. Our twenty-four members were peppy and happy, and even though we were somewhat abused. we all lived through the ordeal. The year of 1927-28 was our Red Letter year. Sopho- mores are always said to be the most unruly. We did our part in the mischief but we also did some acts worth honorable mention. As you all know, the boys and girls as well, had an inter-class basketball tourney. We were very proud of our record, both teams having won the tourney. Every boy in our class was in the band. In baseball we were Well represented. In fact, everything that took place held at least one of our number. This year we felt more sedate, but yet we enjoyed our school term. We have marched with Caesar and his legions through Gaul, and one girl, Gertrude Moore, took him through two contests successfully. Geometry is a source of trouble for all of us, but it wont be long until we can put away Geometry and Cwsar forever. As Seniors we hope to keep that proud old name up to its usual high standard.

'Our .class then numbered thirty-two, and we still have twenty-two sailing along. WAS Freshmeni we mdilil gently bent to the work of getting the most out of our studies. English, Civics and History were not so bad, but the "Dreaded Algebra" was terrible, or we thought so until we were cast upon the raging Sea of Geometry in the Sophomore year. We sailed through the many storms such as the Theorem of Pyth- agoras, and came safe to port in Geometry, also English, Latin and History. In contests we had our representatives. In oratorical work we had William Raynor, Walter Baker and Robert Miller. We feel we had a very able contestant in Robert Miller, al- though he did not win. Gladys Critchfield also did good work in the Bible contest. We have excelled in other activities. In our Freshman year we put on a minstrel show for Grand Army Day. We have had actors in the plays and Cantatas of the High School. We have several members in the Glee Clubs and Choir, and an exceptionally good singer is Margueriette Cressler. ln ath- letics we did our full share by providing able members for both baseball and basketball. In baseball Cork was at third, Fletcher at second, Bybee in the field, and Titus behind the bat-all Sophomores. Basketball included Titus, Cork and Fletcher as the defensive aces of the squad. Bybee, Mays, Thacker and Baker showed promise on the second team. We are very proud to say that according to the highly dignified upper classmen, we are not as green as we used to lie.

During the year we faithfully shirked our Civics and Algebra to the best of our abilities and behaved as green freshies should. We proved there was something in us around contest time when a freshie girl won first place in the Bible contest and third place in the oratorical contest. This made the other classes open their eyes. They had taken us as "just green freshies," but proving ourselves their equal in this school affair, they had to change their opinion just a little bit. We didn't show up so well in basketball as the team was made up mostly of veterans, but as we forge to the top we expect to be there going strong. Wherever the blue and white moves you will most generally find freshmen as in the band, baseball, choir, plays, etc. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S Q Lb. Industrial Class 5 E R IC 'I' R x MORTON MEMORIAL H. S.

Basketball Season We began this basketball season with a new coach, a new gymn, and the hardest schedule we have ever had. With only two men gone from last year's squad, we started training with a string of veterans. Our line-up at first con- sisted of Adkins-center, J. Talbott-forward, C. Talbott- forward, Bower-floor-guard, and Titus-back-guard. This was later changed to Cork, guard, with Bower replacing J. Tal- bott as forward. This combination proved to be more effec- tive. There was plenty of promising material but it needed developing with time and practice. We were learning a new style play, delayed offense, and it took us some time to become accustomed to this system. Our first six games were defeats but were bitterly con- tested. Our first game with Morristown showed our lack of team-work, but we managed to hold them to a 28-15 victory. Our next game with New Salem, county champions, showed a decided improvement since we were defeated only by a four point margin. The next game with Morristown was our dedi- cation game. It was also a defeat, the score ending 30-17. In our next three games we were also defeated, but we were making steady improvement. The majority of the scheduled games which followed were victories for Morton. Evidently Coach Bowen's plan was to work the team up to tip-top for the tournament, regardless of the games lost or won. From this year's team we lose only C. Talbott. Talbott has worked hard this last year and has excelled in every phase of the game. He usually captained the team, and his adapti- bility in victory or defeat, many times turned the tide in our favor. As the end of the season approached he proved the main-stay in most of our games. THE RETROSPECT Most of the team will be with us next year and we expect to make an impressive showing. Adkins, our hard-working center, will probably be here securing the tip-off. Bower, all county forward, and high scorer of the county tournament will be working with J. Talbott, another fast man, next year. I-Ilue, Wilson. and DeF'rees will also be on the front line, and as material for our defense, we have Cork, Titus, and Fletcher, as good as can possibly be desired in their line of work.

As our record was not impressive, we were not picked as strong contenders for the cup. We soon convinced them that we were "after big game" when we beat Carthage at 17-3. In our second game, which was with Moscow, we won through our defensive style of play. The final score was 18-14. This game put us in the finals, and we were due to play New Salem. defending champs, that night. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. In the first half of the final game the team took it easy, playing a nice defensive game and conserving their strength for the final half. This first half ended with the score 9-3, in favor of New Salem. In the second half our team made a come-back that came within two points of tying the score With New Salem. New Salem was given seven chances at the char- ity line and this proved their salvation, for they made them all. SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT In the sectional tournament our first game was with Mil- roy, who also had a good strong team and were in the pink of condition. They had proven our Nemesis the year before, and although we longed for vengeance, We were defeated in a clean but hard game by a score of 28-19.

Not much attention was given them until they defeated the Arl- ington Juniors in a curtain raiser to the final game at the Rushville Invitational County Tourney. Then We became aware of their possibilities. This was their first appearance in a scheduled game, but they readily became accustomed to the crowd and, making a great come-back, defeated the more experienced Arlington team by a score of 21-20. In their next game at Carthage they were beaten by a one-point margin in a double overtime game, their only defeat for this season. Later, in the Raleigh Invitational tournament they en- tirely redeemed themselves by smothering all opposition and bringing home the pennant as tourney Winners. Their game with Raleigh, although rather close in the first half, was a walk-away in the second, the boys Winning 25-15. THE RETROSPECT The final game with Center proved a greater victory for the Morton Juniors and the score ended 48-8. Buckler, Har- ris and Miller were the chief scorers in these games with Buckler clearing the path and Miller following through. They all showed the result of Coach Bowen's training. The line-up was as follows: Harris, center: Miller, forward, Chillcott, for- ward: Buckler and Carpenter, guards. Subs were Walker, Blue and Wimmer. We are expecting mighty deeds in Bas- ket Ball from these men in a few years to come. THE SUPER VARSITY The Super Varsity, dubbed Tiger Kits, made an enviable record this season, winning twelve out of their thirteen games. These were the men that gave the varsity the stiff com- petition necessary to get into tournament condition. David- son, a senior, playing center, secured the tip-off from many taller opponents. Godschalk, also a senior, played forward and was the chief scorer of the team. Mays, Godschalk's mate on the other side of the floor, was especially valuable for his team-work and his ability to come through with a field goal in critical moments. Bybee was a real asset at floor-guard and did his bit in the scoring. Decker, back-guard and captain of the team, more than once saved the game for Morton by his guarding maneu- vers. Thacker, Patrick, Smith, and Raynor also saw plenty of action and usually cleaned the floor with the opposing team. Sweaters were awarded at the end of the season for the first time. Major letters were given to Adkins, Bower, C. Tal- bott, Cork, Titus, Fletcher, Blue, and Godschalk. Minor let- ters were given to J. Talbott, DeFrees, Wilson, Decker, Bybee and Davidson. We hope to continue sweater awards in future years. DATE MORTON MEMORIAL H. S.

MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. Baseball Season A much better start was made in baseball than in basket- ball. Our first game, April 5th, with Center was a decisive triumph. Our boys, although a trifie ragged in their fielding, were good hitters, and showed that when the raggedness had been drilled out of them, they would make a tough combina- tion to beat. Our next game with Bentonville was a hard fought battle between two fine teams, but Bower's pitching and the team's excellent fielding finally won for us. When we met Lewisville, April 16th, in our third game, we found that we had more than our match, for we were defeated by six runs, the score ending 7-1. April 19th, we met New Salem, our conquerors in the Rush County Tournament, and it gave us much pleasure to defeat them in a closely drawn game by a score of 8-6. April 24th, Bentonville vanquished Morton on their own diamond. This game was played on a wet day and the dia- mond was in poor condition for a game. Due to errors in the first inning, they scored three runs. Morton settled down and held them scoreless the rest of the game. The game ended Bentonville 3, Morton 2.

During the first semester the Freshmen girls played sev- eral games with the Center girls. As the games were not scheduled, they didn't count, but nevertheless, upper class- men couIdn't stand so many defeats. Several girls went to Miss Kemp and asked her if she would coach a high school team. Luckily, Miss Kemp was interested in such an organization, and asked for candidates for the team. Several answered and went to practice with great eagerness. With but one practice the girls played Center, December twenty-first. This was one of the first girls' games in this vicinity, and several confused spectators attended. This con- fusion was caused by the addition of the sixth player to the line-up. During the first half both teams were rather timid, but when that wore off, there was much scrambling for the ball. The first half ended with the Morton girls hanging on to Center team 8-8. At the second, our team weakened, and Cen- ter girls forged steadily ahead, making the final score 21-14. This defeat only served to encourage the girls. They practiced with renewed vigor, and when, January eighteenth, they played Center again, they showed much more skill. The game was very exciting, Center immediately tying the small lead Morton had gained. However, Center slowed during the second quarter, and Morton took advantage of this. Center made a frantic effort to gain, but Morton made a last spurt which only served to strengthen their already obvious lead. The game ended with a final score of 15-5. After the game, members of the team were not so inter- ested in basketball, except as a form of recreation. They had accomplished what they had sought, mainly-to defeat Cen- ter. MORTON MEMORIAL H.

Two years ago the band entered the State Band Contest held at Elkhart, and won a beautifully engraved drum-major's baton, and last year at the District Contest held at Marion, we won a silver director's baton. The band is known all over this state and many others. Frank G. Starr, an ex-pupil of the Home, who resides at Salt Lake City, Utah., has sent nearly one hundred selections, including overtures, novelties, and marches which the mem- bers of the band appreciate to the greatest extent. The band has new uniforms which were purchased this year of '29, These consist of white trousers, blue coats, and red and blue capes. Two drum-major's suits, one for the senior drum-major and another l'or the junior drum-major, were also purchased. A great surprise was given us when the band was SLID- plied with a new sousaphone. We hope in years to come that the band will have as much success as this year has turned out to be under the direction of Mr. Wright. The band has enjoyed filling engagements during the last year at the following places: Morristown, Dublin, Cambridge City, Richmond, Martinsville, and Indianapolis. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. Orchestra The orchestra which consists of twenty members is one of the best produced in several years. This year Mr. Wright took unskilled violin students into the orchestra and gave them thorough training. Their progress is almost unbelievable. The other members are veterans, but they too, have improved under the skilled baton of Mr. Garver C. Wright. Selections are varied, as is well indicated by the engage- ments filled at meetings of various clubs, lodges and other organizations. A trait of the orchestra admired by all is the appropriateness of selections for the varied occasions. About the biggest "hit" the orchestra made this year was at Manilla Where the County Oratorical Contest was held. The Home girl Won first place, and as the orchestra filled the intermission successfully, several remarked "Morton can't be beat!" May the orchestra of next year successfully fulfill their mission.

Three years ago, Hugh Innis, then a sophomore in the Home school, organized a troop of Lone Scouts. He immedi- ately gathered a large following, which ilourished for some time. Mr. Innis was an able leader, and had been experienced in that line of work. For some reason, however, the movement fell through. Undismayed, Innis introduced the Boy Scout organization to his fellow-students in March, 1927, and called for volunteers. Mr. E. A. Peden took the post of Scoutmaster, and was assist- ed by Mr. Gorman, also a Home employee. Soon the leadership changed hands, as Innis directed his attention to new Helds. For sometime the scouts were engaged THE RETROSPECT in local work, and were not included in scout activities in other cities. Through the kindness of Arthur Wolfe, treasurer of the Board of Trustees, uniforms were purchased for one full patrol, which was named after him. Many other large dona- tions were given by the American Legion and its Auxiliary, the War Mothers, and other organizations. The scouts were also able to purchase equipment by running stands, selling paper, candy, and ice cream. On Scout Day at Bloomington two years ago, the local troop attended the Michigan State-Indiana football game, and were conducted through the campus of the Indiana University. lt was through some difficulty that engagements were made, until they came under the Anderson Council in November, 1928. Since then the Scouts have had a full program with scout rallies, courts of honor, etc. One of the most notable ol' these rallies was a big Two Ring Circus, held at Anderson which we won by a large margin. The Circus was attended by all troops in the Anderson Council. Scoutmaster l'eden has expended valuable time and effort to give the troop the success which it enjoys today. The scouts now have an enrollment ol' forty-three and many more are delinitely considering the taking of this step which will mean so much to them. A Scout Band was organized in Feb- ruary, and. since many members of the Home Band have joined this world-wide organization the proficiency of this group can easily be seen. Charles Shedd, carpenter, has accepted the position of assistant scoutmaster, while Charles Bray, Elmer Johnson, Bert Larson, Loren Helms, and Lonnie Messick hold the posi- tions of committeemen. Marion Lemon has attained the post of Junior Assistant Scoutmasterg William Gibbs, Senior Patrol Leaderg William Raynor holds a position as scribe, while Edward Wilson is quartermaster of the troop. A num- ber of the scouts are well on the road to the Eagle award, hav- ing seventeen of the twenty-one required merit badges. The Scout movement has done much to interest and stimulate the work of the boys and those who have already joined the local Scouts do all that is possible to impress upon others the im- portance of this step. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. Contests BIBLE The annual Bible contest was held the 4th, 5th, and 6th of February. This year in the preliminary contest, twenty-one contestants were chosen from the three divisions, which were, High School, Intermediate and Primary. The Primary contestants were given general questions while the High School and Intermediate students were given questions concerning the Book of Acts. In former years, competition was not so strong. This year only four of the Primary contestants could be eliminated. In High School and Intermediate groups it was quite a while before one was obliged to take his seat. However, it is gener- ally known that everyone could not win, and as the questions grew more difficult, there were only three answering. These three were Lillian Decker, who took first place, Mary Starkey, second, and Margaret Kelley, third, in the High School group. Those winning in the Intermediate, were Louise Brock, first, Irene Moore, second, and Herschel Harris, third. Mr. Wolf oEered prizes of money to both groups and they also greatly enjoyed a movie at his expense. The Primary division enjoyed a lovely party given in their honor. BIBLE ESSAY Rev. Guyatt, of Carthage, had been conducting Sunday services for a number of years in our school. He had given his best, and when he decided that he must leave, he wondered just how much we had gained from his work. So he spon- sored an essay contest, the subject of which was, "The Value of Chapel Services to the Institution." It was judged by three English teachers of this school on points of originality, tech- nique and neatness. Rev. Guyatt was well pleased, as were the judges with the efforts of a number of students. Of these contestants Norma Fletcher received a prize of five dollars for the best essay, Mary Raynor was honored second, and Helen Canaulty, third. THE RETROSPECT LATIN On Feb. 8th the Local Latin Contest, sponsored by Miss Gartlein, was held to select the two Cmsar and Beginning Latin students who were to participate in the County Contest at Rushville. William Raynor and Dorthea Welker were the contest- ants in Beginning Latin. Carl Decker and Gertrude Moore were the Caesar contestants. At the County Contest Gertrude won Second place in Caesar and received a beautiful silver medal while Carl Decker placed fifth. In Beginning Latin William Raynor placed third and Dorothea Welker, fourth. The students who won first and second places were to represent Rush County at the District Contest which was to be held at Greenfield March 23. Here Gertrude placed fourth in Caesar. ORATORICAI. This year the contest was sponsored by the Rush County lioard of Plducation in the interest of' better speech. The ora- tions were standard selections, and were judged by interpreta- tion rather than content. Owing to the large number of students which entered, a preliminary elimination was necessary. Twelve contestants were entered in the final local contest, which was sponsored by Miss Geraldine Gartlein. Norma Fletcher won the honor of representing Morton Memorial at Manilla, where the Coun- ty Oratorical contest was held. James DeFrees, received sec- ond honors, while Lillian Decker received third. Mr. Wolf gave prizes for first, second, and third place in the local contest and promised Norma to match the ten dollar prize should she win the County contest. At Manilla, Norma Fletcher again took first place over six other contestants representing the County schools. Her total prizes were twenty-three dollars. MORTON MEMORIAL H. S. Dmmatics Interest in dramatics has been greatly increased by the dramatic genius of Prof. Beriault of the School of Expression, Indianapolis, who has visited our school twice this year. Miss Geraldine Gartlein, a pupil of Prof. Beriault, has directed most of the dramatics this year. "SIX WHO PASS BY WHILE THE LENTILS BOIL" CHARACTERS Queen .....S. Margaret Kelley Dreadful Headsman A - - James Adkins Ballad Singer - D Genevieve Stevens Little Boy S Edwin Burton Mime S Charles Talbott Blind Man - James Godschalk Milkmaid .... . - B Bernice Parmerlee You ..--..a Juanita Hendricks Prologue by Marie Sego and Bernice Parmerlee SYNOPSIS A queen who was to be beheaded by the Dreadful Heads- man, escaped and was hidden by a little boy. Several people passed on the way to the decapitation among whom were the ballad singer, a mime, a blind man, and milkmaid. The queen was saved owing to the fact that the clock struck the hour for her execution. It was against the law to execute after the specified time. The dreadful headsman was punished for his eagerness to behead the queen, while the little boy was granted several wishes. The G. A. R. and Auxiliary for whose entertainment it was given, enjoyed the performance, as the characters por- trayed their parts very well.

As they were about to leave the house, ilolgar noticed an old woman sitting by their iireside, and he gave up the pleasure of attending the services in order to care for the old woman. Meanwhile at the church, the High Priest was accepting the gifts of a number of wealthy and selfish people. The chimes refused to ring. The king even offered his crown, but the chimes did not ring. The people were about to leave dis- appointed when Holgar walked to the altar and gave the priest his two pennies, all that he possessed. The chimes rang, be- cause of the unselfishness of a kind and thoughtful boy. Directed by Miss Gartlein MORTON MEMORIAL H. S.

Pressed for an explanation of his prejudice, he begins the story of some- thing that happened fifty years before. There is a "Hash- back" to the period in which Cartaret and one Jeremiah Wayne loved Moonyeen Clare. She chose Carteret, and Wayne, jealous and quite drunk, forced his way into the house the night of the wedding, shot at Carteret, and accidently killed Moonyeen. Remembering this, Carteret continues firm in his opposition until the spirits of Moonyeen Clare and Sarah Wayne, mother of Kenneth, get a message across from the other world, softening the subborn heart. Then he dies and joins the spirit bride while the lovers are free to marry. Music by Home Orchestra, directed by Mr. Wright. her MORTON MEMORIAL H.
