Let's look back a little and see what has been buzzing during the past year in our high school, foverlooking, of course, the daily buzz in the study hall.l First of all, there were four newcomers to our faculty during the year: Miss Stauffer, who is leading the English students through the intricacies of that subject and the would-be Span- iards through the even more intricate mazes of Spanish, Mrs. Walsh, who is ably carrying out the duties of Miss Pippz Miss Tucker, who protects the roof of the lab. from her zealous chem- ists, and Mr. Sims, who is teacher of bookkeeping and English classes. There have been big doings among the facultyll Miss Pipp is wearing a uniform now and talking navy-style-she's now an ensign in the Waves. An event which we shall long remember is the dedication of our service flag. The Music Department furnished a number of musical selections and several men from George Field spoke to us. Russell Trimble blew taps for the two boys from our school who had given their lives for their country. The flag now hangs in the study hall to remind us of the 496 boys and five faculty members who have gone out from our high school to take part in the war. Our boys at home have been doing right well by themselves, too, because our basketball team took a sudden jump for the better at the end of the season and shot that ball straight through to the sectional game, where they were eliminated after a hard fight. There has been the usual number of parties this year, and the Iuniors have been quite energetic about giving Friday-night dances. Since the food situation prevented a banquet in the usual Iunior-Senior tradition, they compromised with a dance and a picnic. The Debate Club also had a dance fnstead of their banquet. A As we look back over our activities of the past year, we see that it has been fun-every minute of it. We who are under- classmen are looking forward to what next year will bring, and we wish the Seniors of this year the best of luck! Ann Reinhardt.

By Margaret Ieanne Flanders. FUHEUJURD This issue of the Sibylline appears during a crisis in the history of our country. Here at Mt. Carmel High School life goes on much the same as usual, but in distant lands grim bat- tles are being fought to preserve our Ameri- can way of life. The Work in this book, as to motif, empha- sizes the contrast between War scenes and school scenes. May all students appreciate fully the sacrifice, hardships We are sharing, and may We realize as students We can serve our country best by co-operation in school projects, being dependable, and putting our very best effort into our school Work. si f Q ' I Q i " .fi Q ' 71, , ,f law -- A x K L , -K , ' ' W 1 , In k Q 1 ,1-sg ,,,f..,,..,: ., YV? 4 5 5 Q ,Vg '- ii Y 1 L i S 'lf s , , 5 .

Carmel High School, seeking higher achievements in the vast World of education. As our leaders for our first year, we chose Helen Carrell as President, Donald Fisher, Vice-President, Yvonne Carlton, Secretaryg and Doris Lewis, Treasurer. We chose Mr. Garrett and Mrs. McLaughlin as our guiding sponsors. We entered into the social world by having an April party and a Gypsy breakfast. As Sophomores we elected Robert Kling, Bill Waddle, Elizabeth McLaugh- lin, and Bill Wolf as our class officers, and Miss Mignonne Cheesman and Miss Elizabeth Cheesman as our sponsors. We were becoming more bold this year and ever mastered the art of passing notes. Our social life of this year consisted of a class party and a picnic at the end of the year. Then came the real test of our career-shouldering the numerous responsibilities as Iuniors. Under the capable leadership of Miss Elizabeth Cheesman, Miss Mignonne Cheesman, and Mr. Warren, We learned the laws of finance in order to make possible the lunior-Senior Prom and the picnic at the Country Club. We presented the play "Good Night Ladies" which met with great success. To help us fulfill the events of our crowded calendar for the year, We chose Mary Everett, Robert Kling, Dan Elkins, and Bill Waddle as our class officers. We had then reached the highlight of our school career. We were now Seniors, brimming with knowledge as Well as many fond memories of the preceding years. We were guided through our final year by Miss Tucker and Mr. Sims and our class officers, Bill Bastnagel, Robert Kling, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and Harold Rademacher. Our Senior play "Professor, How Could You!" met with great success and brought out hidden talents in many of our classmates. An outstanding feature of our social life Was the Iunior-Senior Prom given by the luniors. May 31 was the date of Commencement, after which was the annual commencement dance. All of these events We will long remember' as providing some of the happiest moments of our lives. Our class has been well represented in musical work, the various clubs, and athletics, as Well as scholastic Work. We have gained much from these associations and wish to thank all our teachers and friends for making our school life an accomplishment and a very happy remembrance.

He len Junio rlllass Histnru The faculty opened its eyes on that sleepy morning in September of 1940 to see 167 pairs of eyes staring at them blankly from behind a like number of green faces ffiguratively speaking, of coursei. Ever since that date, the class of 1944 has been doing things in a BIG way-B for Brilliance, l for Initiative, and G for Genius. During our first enlightening but trying year Miss Moore and Mrs. McLaughlin guided us through the maze while Clarence Mullins, Ann Rein- hardt, Elaine Glick and Mary Pat Brines became familiar with the class offices. ln keeping with the rank of the class, we had a "Kid Party" in early spring and another redeeming entertainment in April. While the majority of our present Iuniors were Sophomores, Frederick Wood, Ann Reinhardt, Norman Canedy and Paul Iones were the responsible students who held the class offices. Mrs. McLaughlin and Mr. I-Iowerton steered our course as we sailed through our second, merry, active year. First we had a "Li'l Abner Party" in which we Sophies literally let down our hair. We had it back up for the other party in which all the classes were represented. We were so well pleased with our sponsors of the other two years that for our most important year we chose all three to help us. The class offices were passed around to Paul lones, Keith Coleman, Fred Wood and lane Blood who, with the sponsors, passed out the committee chairmanships to twelve capable Iuniors. Now pardon us for a moment as we expound upon the merits and activities of the class. We take pride in the showing our boys have made in all the athletic activities of the year-more power, speed and accuracy to you gentlemen in the future. Prom our numbers have come noticeable per- centages of all the music organizations. With a mere one hundred eighteen in the class, we have made ourselves known in all the clubs but two-those exclusively for Seniors. Many of our girls realize what it means to see which wears out first-the stadium and bleachers or their feet-after all the training they got while selling popcorn and ice cream. As you will remember, the play we presented was a hit. To show all the classes a good time fand to raise rnoneyl we sponsored an "All School Dance" each month. Those who heard Marilyn Skiles sing for one of the dances will realize that we showed the comers more than "fun for all". Then as a climax of our activities, we put everything we had into giving the Seniors a prom that they would remember for the years ahead. ln between the time we spent on all these matters we took time off to put a few lucky people on the honor roll to hold up our scholastic record. So now we shall hang up our hats for a leisurely three months and be ready to start next year with even more pep. Carry on, all you Sophomores, it is your show now? I. A.

Carmel High School as wonder- ing and awed Freshmen. We learned the typical high school customs and passed through all the stages and antics that are credited to the "Freshies" with Iames Cleary as President, Patricia Carlton as Vice-President, Iackie Case as Secretary, Katie Ruth Farley as Treasurer, and we were kindly guided by Miss Moore and Mr. Arrick. We had only one party, which was a Friday the 13th party, but everyone had a very good time and no bad luck resulted. This year as "Sophisticated" Sophomores We elected Iohn Rafferty as Presidentg Betty French as Vice-Presidentp Phyllis Skiles as Secretary, Theda Tyler as Treasurer, and Miss Mig- nonne Cheesman and Miss Cantrell as sponsors. We had two parties which were both great successes. Our class is well represented in all sports and organiza- tions, such as basketball, band, and A Cappella Choir, and in almost every club in school. We may not have a lot in numbers, but We do have something that will make M.C.l-l.S. proud of the class of '45, Phyllis Skiles. 35 freshman Class Ufficers FF I FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Virginia Sweeney ----- Vice-President Vera Baird - - - Treasurer Doris Fischer - - Secretary lack O'Donnel - - President 36 Freshmen J . nv 6- imr je: kk I s H' 'i A ,y I Y if-. xl l J L J ' X .0 .Q 'firm ui, er.

In the fall of the year 1942 a group of green self- conscious Freshmen entered the halls of Mt. Carmel High School to begin a most enjoyable stay of four years there. The upper classrnen were entirely indifferent to the child- ish goings-on of the Freshmen, but as time progressed, a few became more widely known through football, basketball, scholarship, music, and other activities. The class elected as its officers: President, lack O'Donnell, Vice-President, Virginia Sweenyg Secretary, Doris Fischer, Treasurer, Vera Baird. The sponsors were Miss Goedecke and Miss Elizabeth Cheesman. The night of February 26 the Freshman class had its first party of the year, and what fun it wasl Games, dancing, eats, and an honest-to-goodness fortune teller. Our first year has had its good and bad moments as they all do, but the good ones are the ones which will lead us all back next fall for our Sophomore year, to which we are all looking forward.

Again the annual exhibit of the various types of projects gives a visual measure of the progress and developments made in the school shop this year. Thirty models of Army and Navy planes were our quota for this year. This is twenty less than the quota for last year. However, the total for the two years was 80 different models of the various allied and axis nations. The boys and teacher heartily hope that their efforts spent making these models have made a contribution toward making the war a shorter one. Many boys, who are now ready to use their mechanical drawing knowl- edge, have expressed their disappointment that they did not take advantage of the courses offered while in school and those who could came back for' a reviewing brush-up. This keen interest in mechanical drawing has spurred the shop boys to accept the drawing courses more seriously, for which we all have spent some time in mastering the fundamentals. Other interests were field trips of industries and a hike to study timber and its relation to the lumber industry. Because some materials and equipment are not available for the shop use, our work has had to be adjusted to present time conditions.

Later they ran up a score of 26 to O on the Fairfield Mules and won their first conference game. Then after a few more defeats they won the most exciting and pleasing of all the games this year by defeat- ing the Lawrenceville lndians l3 to 7 before a home crowd. Although winning only 3, while losing 4 and cancelling 2, we count this a very successful season. At the close of the football season letters were awarded to 7 Seniors: lohn, Flademacher, Finn, Fisher, Elkins, lenkins, and Kirkman, to five funiors: Gray, l-lack, L. lohns, Hockgieger, Henry, three Sophornores: William Malott, Collins, and Bufkin, and to two Freshmen: Nelson Malott and Lucas.

They got off to a good start by winning this game, but then they began one of their losing streaks that made the schedule, in reference to av- erages, one of the poorest for quite a few years. Wlien the schedule had been finished, it showed The Aces had lost lfl games while winning 5. However the Aces showed themselves to be a tournament team by making very good showings in the three tournaments in which they participated. The first was the Big Pour Tourney, held at Robinf son on New Years Day, Here the Aces defeated Bridgeport to advance to the finals, but took only second place when defeated by Robinson in the Championship game. Their next tournament was the Regional Toure ney on their home floor, ln this tournament the l'vv'r-tt flask Cltlierice Mullins t i fimioi lenkms Robert Fischer Aces redeemed themselves for their poor schedule, winning a first place trophyg defeating Carmi in the finals for the Regional Championship. This ad- vanced them to the Sectional Tourney held at Rob- inson. ln the first game of the tourney however, the Aces' season came to a close as they were de- feated by Salem, who later took third place at the State Tourney. The personnel of the team this year was made up of three Seniors, funior lenkins, Raul fohn, and Robert Seibert, and two funiors, Clyde Millhorn and Everett Hack.

The Professor CDavid Lockel Was in the predicament of becoming dean. Predicament? Yes, for Professor Perry, whose only love was Cleopatrag for he had to have a wife in three days to become dean. Vicky Randolph CMignon Fromanl, having bribed her way into the pool for the Winning selections, joined in the search. Her candidate Was Valerie 'Whitman CMary Elizabeth Mclsaughlinl, a southern bombshell. Priscilla Morby fHelen M. Risleyl, a pretty secretary, was chosen by Iohn Appleby CBill Bastnagell. Miss Tootsie Bean, CBarbara Sullardsl, her lemon chiffon pie having been described by Grandma Perry lNadine Comptonl, was chosen by Boggins CDonald Fisherl, the butler. With the aid of Grandpa Perry fRobert Klingl, complications set in which were finally unravelled by fohn with the aid of three children KMGIY Lou Camp, Donnie Dean, and limmie Painterl. Tootsie's brother, butcher-boy Bean Hoe Grayl, added to the merriment. But finally even with all the excite- ment, the Professor realizes that Vicky, Grandpas secret candidate, Was the Wife for him. Not only do we want to congratulate the cast upon their fine performance, but We especially want to thank Miss Tucker and Mr. Sims on their splendid directing. 52 the Band First Row: Keith Coleman, Danny Elkins, Paul lones, Mariorie Reeder, Yvonne Carlton, Anna Mae Kling, Betty Stanstield, Ieanette Sager, lane Blood, Mignon Froman.

Among these are the National Club and the Student Director Class, and Oh, Yes . , . not to forget those swinginf swayin' rhythm boys, those boogy-woogy men from Borneo, none other than our own Campus Cadets.

The respective glee clubs give an opportunity for anyone interested in the vocal art to receive experience and training, while the A Cappella Choir is a more select group, composed only of the true artists?? This year, although a Campus Revue was not possible, the Music Department combined its efforts to present its annual spring concert. And, of course, who could forget that trip to George Field Where we contributed to the war effort by entertaining the soldiers? These are only a few of the memorable events of the year. And so to our director, Mr. Perkins, upon whom rests the respnnsibility for all of our success, We give our hearty vote of appreciation. lack Hill. 56 Junior Class Pla GOING PLACES Ask any lunior if he is "Going Places" and he will reply that his class certainly did on November 2Uth, 1942. With a minimum of prodding, he may tell you that Miss Moore and Mrs. McLaughlin directed the farce so well that the audience demanded a curtain call for the surprised cast. Ann Reinhardt and Norman Canedy exerted their wits trying to get foe Gray, a Texan football wonder, into Dartford College. Aleta Marx was also quite anxious about his passing an Ancient History exam in which Bob Cowling had alreadv flunked him. The president of Dartford, Clarke Stein, was afflicted with such a miserable cold that he appeared to be more stubborn than usual about allowing the football star to enter. Largely responsible for the one hundred thirty-five chuckles were Gladys, the maid-oops sorry, Elizabeth Pye, the student-and the highbrow cousin, Rupert Finegold, who took Chuck's exam, the blame, responsibility for cram- ming Chuck for the exam and also Gladys to the dance. The president and his wife, Rose Dyehouse, met three Miss Malloys, the Texans millionaire aunt. The first, Helen Weisenberger--a feature writer, jumped out a window giving Gwendolyn Wieler the opportunity to imper- sonate. Chuck recognized lane Blood as the real aunt, After passing his exam and her endowment of a new library, Chuck was admitted to the college midst the shouts of congratulations from all, lane Blood. 59 ue and Gavel First Row: Elaine Glick, Yvonne Carlton, Barbara Sullards, Helen Carrell, Mary Lou Coleman, Mignon Froman, Miss Reincke.

The local chapter of the National Honor Society for Secondary Schools is sponsored by Mrs. Clara McLaughlin. The object of the organization is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote Worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character. Students of the senior class are selected annually by the faculty as meme bers of the organization. Membership is based on the four cardinal principles: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. A very impressive initiation was performed before the entire student body on April 22, and a banquet was held on May l7th. To be selected as a member of the society is the highest honor any high school student can receive. Dan Elkins, a member of this years organization, is attending Purdue University the second semester. 63 Iiehate Club Of all organizations, debating is among the most popular, One reason for its popularity is the ability of our sponsors, Miss Pipp and Mr. Sims, to provide variety at our meetings. Under the leadership of our officers, Bill Waddle, President, Helen Carrell, Vice-President, Mignon Froman, Secretary, and l-larold Bademacher, Treas- urer, we are nearing our goal. Most of our programs were spent in discussing our national debate topic for the year which was the post-War world, ln between times, we sharpened our wits on both humorous, serious, and extemporaneous debates. Our program for the year was interrupted when our sponsor, Miss Pipp, heeded her' country's call to become a WAVE, Mr. Sims, in turn, heeded our cry for help by promising to be our sponsor. Due to the shortage of food, We are looking forward to a formal dance this year instead of our annual debate club banquet.

The Latin Club is now the oldest club in the school. lt was organized to further an interest in Latin and to learn more about Latin customs. The officers this year are: First Consul, Ann Reinhardt, Second Consul, Helen Carrellg Scribe, lane Blood. The club meets twice every month on Thursday evening. This year two initiations were held, one at the beginning of each semester. At the meetings the entertainment is varied. Several plays have been given showing the use of Latin in English, discussions have been held on mythology, and contests and games are played in Latin. Occasionally Latin songs are sung There have been three parties this year. A part of the dues is used for refreshments and entertainment and a part is used to promote some Worth-While Latin Club project.

Twenty-two new members successfully lived through that horrible ordeal, and started to take part in the club activities. The Science Club now has thirty-eight members. The purpose of the club is to make it possible tor students to use and advance their knowledge of Science. The meetings were held every Monday night, and the programs included interesting talks and experiments on all branches ot Science. The yearly party was held on lornuary twentyfninth. The new sponsor this year, Miss Tucker, was always ready to give timely advice and helpful suggestions.

The class- es are not restricted to any one age group, but are open to Freshmen, Sophomores, luniors, and Seniors alike. The Foods class during the first part of the school term studied the preparation and food value of foods served for breakfast, luncheon, and dinner. During the latter part of the year, wartime nutri- tional meals were planned with the uses of meat extenders, vegetable extenders, and meat substitutes.

There are 85 students taking first year Typing and 43 taking second year Typing. In the first year Short- hand class there are 43 students and in the second year class there are 31 students.

Yes, the Army Air Corps is victorious once again and our boys creep away one by one to plan a counter attack and the rescue. Waddle, his ego deflated, joins his comrades with a longing glance, as Patty, Who, completely under the power of one of the George Field raiders, dances by. Yes, the long threatened raid had come. It certainly had, 500 strong. Even Pepsi and Pete had succeeded in this deal, but Pop viewed the situation with an utterly lost and woeful countenance. His school over-run by soldiers and his own boys beaten at their game of convoy with the girls. But it was his own fault. lf he only had not resisted the urgent appeals of the air raid wardens to tum off the lights. But no, he had insisted that dancing in the dark was not respectable and the school, the prom in full swing, had remained a target and a beacon to the coming raiders. Ah, and there are Pat Lance and Bob Crum. That's one lucky fellow who didn't lose his girl to a uniform. Maybe it could be because she already had one. Dry those .tears Dutchy, the fleet will be in soon. But now, will a soldier do for that one and only sailor? You're not particular. Even the timid, bashful teachers are not neglected and many are tripping on the light fantastic toe. Furlough, Miss Pipp? Do Waves attract men like that? Seems as if Miss Fteincke is busy and all smiles too, for don't you see the crowd she has mustered about her? The dancing continues, and to the rhythm of La Conga, Vera leads on. But into the midst of this plunges Gordon. Eager to redeem his family honor, he snatches Mary from the arms of a burly soldier who, white with fury, chases him. But above all this a shrill whistle penetrates the din and con- fusion. All stop dead in their tracks as if frozen with fear. Then they are gone, one and all. The planes zoom overhead and wing homeward. For that was the tardy bell after taps. The gym seems deserted, but one by one the couples again enter. The peace and happiness is restored to all and fun goes on as the evening continues. Tom is again telling Mary Elizabeth that the mud on her skirt, caused by gas rationing, lends to her charm. CThat walk from Bellmont, you knowl. lack and Rodger the perfect couple restored. Rex swinging his partners once again. Careful there, that arm is pretty swift. You might miss the catch. Betty French, woefully bewailing the fact she was so fickle in time of crisis, sits on the side watching her numerous admirers, who, anxious to regain their self respect, dance with one and then another just to show her she isn't the only good-looker around.
