INDIANA. IIIGIII SCIIOOL 1924 X'! I Eg E?: df 11 N TIIIRTEENTII ANNUAL EDITION , f if Foreword Listen, folks-just a minute before you begin reading this Hoop-Pole, of which we're proud. Of course we realize that Irving Bachellor or O. O. M'lntyre probably would't own this book on a dare, but all the same, simple amateurs that we are, this thirteenth edition of the Hoop-Pole is the pride of our hearts. We've burned gallons of midnight oil working on it in- stead of cramming for tests twith the sad results, sometimes, as far as our grades were concernedj 5 we've discussed covers, pic- tures, write-ups, and such every day, even to the extent of "bolting" our lunch and forsaking the rest of the crowdg we've dreamed of this 1924 Annual instead of the customary sugar plums. In other words, we've toiled and we've moiled on this piece of literature, and with the kind assistance of the business men of Mt. Vernon and the co-operation of our class and school., we've been able to overcome the "hoodoo" of that number thirteen. And now we take great pleasure in presenting our Annual to you, and we hope you enjoy it as much as you have the twelve preceding ones all put together. Dedication To one who has always endeavored to as- sist us in our quest for education, who has in- creased the efficiency of our school to the best of his ability, who has striven to fulfill his vision of training us to be better, wiser and more appreciative Americans and who has been our sincere friend and adviser during our entire high school career we gladly dedicate our An- nual. This, we think, is the most appropriate token of our undying gratitude that we can present to Mr. Painter who has become our creditor for the remainder of our lives. 4 U W. S. PAINTER A. B.

I THE Hoop POLE IMWEI Here's the feature of this whole almanac- the pictures of the Seniors! Codfish and cinna- mon seed-There's some formidable array of them! Formidable is exactly the right word, for these Seniors look like "they want what they want when they want it" and if, by any chance, they don't get it, they make you think that they're the goblins and "they'll get you if you don't watch out." As far as ingenuity and cleverness is con- cerned, this bunch isn't any shining light, but if they ever find out that you undergrads said that, they'd skin you alive for they think they're just about the "brainiest" gang on the face of this old earth. Well-while you have your own opinions of these condensed forms of all the world's knowledge, you'll have to respect them, for some of these days you're going to have to fill their shoes. Now take a peep at them! Page Slxteen QINWEI THE H DOP POLE FLORENCE WILLIAMS HOVEY npwoddyn "Graceful and slim and prettily sweet, "She trips along on dainty feet."

Look!" cried a Senior girl, as the Zeppelin, ZR-1, enroute from New Jersey to St. Louis, passed over Mt. Vernon. "I can see nothin ," re lied a Freshman, who was gazin-1' hewilderedl l 1 6 lo the skies. "There it goes. I wonder why they are dropping those pieces of paper," exclaimed the Senior with more enthusiasm. The Freshman, more perplexed than ever, looked at his upper classman and said, "Your imagination works Hne, for I can seen nothing unusual." It was not her imagination, but as a distinguished Senior, it was her privilege alone, to see the passing dirigihle. Leaving the Freshman still standing in wonder at her unsolved actions, the Senior so aroused by curiosity, began to gather up the small pieces of descending paper. As she read the first slip, the following words were found neatly written: Anne Bernd after a leisurely trip around the world will return to her own home town where she will become a Domestic Science teacher. Getting more inquisitive, the Senior eagerly continued to read the papers. Florence Hovey will he the founder of a dancing school, which will be built where Weilbrenner's store now stands. This location will permit her to keep her eyes constantly upon the Democrat Ohice and the Hawkeye Station, run by Alexander and Son. Henry Stock will step right out in the midst of society. He will be ex- ceedingly popular with the opposite sex, due to his unusual eyes and red hair. William Tischendorf will be the world's greatest Tennis Champion.

Vernon High School has once more gained the prestige which it formerly had back in the days of 1910 and 1911 when the local foot ball team was known and feared throughout the Southern portion of Indiana. This year the Red and White warriors were crowned the Southern Indiana State Cham- pions, succeeding Central High of Evansville who has had the honor for the past three years. Mt. Vernon won every one cf its Indiana games, tied the Western Kentucky champs, and lost its only game of the season to the Morganfleld eleven. This defeat was avenged however, when the locals held Henderson, who had de- feated Morganiield by the score of 48 to 0 the week before the local game, to a 6 to 6 tie. On September 3, in answer to the call of the pigskin, thirty husky boys donned the moleskins and reported for the initial practice at the athletic field. The suits were issued and the practice was then begun in earnest with Coach Turpin in charge of the work. During the first three weeks, the recruits were taught the fundamental principles of the game. Then came the signal practices, formations and scriinmages until the opening game with the Francis Joseph Reitz High of Evansville on September 29. Mt. Vernon will have another fast team in the field next year for there will be more experienced men left with which to build the team, than there were in 1924. Collins, McFadden, Rowe, Stiker and Scheller will be lost by graduation this year. Burks and Statz have moved to Evansville. Those remaining who will be the nucleus of next year's team are Crowder, Starken, Lowenhaupt and Black- burn. Besides these there will be two other star players, Emmick and Wade, who were ineligible last year. Although the chances of a championship team next year are not as favorable as they were this year, the 1925 foot ball team will be one of which we will be proud. Schedule of the 1924 season is as follows: Sept. 29--There-Mt. Vernon, 145 Reitz, 12. Oct. 6--There-Mt. Vernon, 65 Morganfield, 13. Oct. 13--There-Mt. Vernon, 253 Boonville, 7. Nov. 3--Here -Mt.

In the first game of the season he was laid up with a "charley horse" which kept him out of the two following games. Despite his injury he was always ready and eager to hit the line and carry the ball whenever he was called upon. This is his last year in high school and his absence will be keenly felt next year. CLAYBORNE BURKS-"Bus"-Fullback Standing out alone in a class by himself is Bus, the hardest hitting line plunger and fastest field runner in Southern Indiana. Mt. Vernon's opponents met their Waterloo many times due to the work of Burks. He is one of the greatest backtield men that Mt. Vernon High has ever produced. He was the only Mt. Vernon man to receive a position on Heze C1ark's mythical all-state eleven. LOUIS STARKEN-''Manageru--Quarterback The "Manager" at quarterback was the brains of the team. He ran the team like a veteran and picked his plays wiih exceedingly good judgment. Starken is a powerful defensive men. He is the only backfield man that will again don the moleskins next year and with a little more training will make an invaluable man. CHARLES McFADDEN-''Charlie"-Right l-lalfback Charlie made a specialty of end runs, and after being tackled he always managed to twist, squirm and wiggle his way for several yards more. In the game when the signal was called for an end run and Charlie was given the ball, his team mates felt safe for they knew that he could be depended upon to make at least five yards at one smash. This was his first and last year on the team. HARLEY ROWE-"Hector"-Right End Hector not only played the right end to perfection but was even shifted to backfield on one occasion. If it had not been for his educated toe in the Peters- burg game the result would have been a tie instead of a victory for the locals. His tackling was of the best. This is Rowe's last year in high school. VIRGIL SCHELLER-''Midget"-Left End The left wing of the line was held down by the midget of the team. Although small in stature, Scheller was very fast and hard to stop. Getting down the field under punts and stopping the receiver in his tracks was a trait that came natural to Scheller. This is Virgi1's last year in school. RAYMOND STIKER--"Bristles"-Left Tackle The mainstay and most consistent player in the line was Stiker. He was one of the fastest tackles that Southern Indiana has ever produced. "Bristles" was noted for his cool-headedness throughout the entire game, and no defensive player was able to keep him from smashing and tearing through the line. The 1924 season was his first foot ball venture, and on account of graduation he will be lost. IMORTON LOWENHAUPT-"Bulldog"--Right Tackle A tackle has one of the most difficult positions on the team and Morton was one of the mainstays. He did the punting and when the enemy was advancing too far into Mt. Vernon's territory he was always called upon and never failed to boot the oval out of danger. He has played on the first team two years and still has one year to battle for the honor of M. V. H. S. ALLEN BLACKBURN--''Berry"--Right Guard When Berry pulled himself into position of right guard, the space was very well filled. He was the strong man of the team and although this was his first year, he proved to be a stone wall for the opposing team. His best game was against the strong Henderson, Ky., eleven. CARL STATZ-"Speed"-Left Guard In Statz, Mt. Vernon had another valuable man and he proved that he could fill his position to perfection. Although he was a little inexperienced at the open- ing ot' the season he soon became acquainted with the game. He was also a good de- fensive man. and his opposing linesman always knew that he was in the game. CHARLES CROWDER-''Satchel"'-Center With Crowder to lead the pigskin warriors for Mt. 'Vernon next year, another winning eleven should be developed. Not only did he pass the ball to perfection but he also played a real game on the defensive. Playing against an All State man in the Princeton game, Crowder showed his real stuff. ALBERT HOFMANN-"Dyna"-Sub Linesman Although Dyna was not a regular he did his part of the work by reporting for practice every day. He could play every position in the line. As a rule a sub must be as good as a regular and this rule held true in his case. He graduates this year. KENNETH SIMPSON-"Simp"-Sub Backfield Simp was a sub backfleld and when any of the backs became injured in a game 116 WHS BIWHYS ready and eager for the fray. He also will be lost by graduation.

THE HOOP POLE QMVHS1 Boys' Basket Ball At the opening of the 1923-24 basket ball season Coach Turpin had a hard task, having only one regular and tive second string men from which to build his team. Three weeks of practice were necessary to decide which players would represent the local school. Finally, after trying several combinations, Turpin selected Simpson and Henderson as forwards, Tischendorf, center, and Low- enhaupt and Blackburn as guards. This line up started the season but soon it was found advisable to shift Captain Lowenhaupt to center to replace Tischendorf, and Hofmann to floor guard in Lowenhaupt's place. Simpson and Henderson made a nice working offense and were ably assisted by Low- enhaupt and Hofmann. Lowenhaupt was the star dribbler of the squad. Hofmann was the best guard. Blackburn played the stellar game at back guard. During the middle of the season Lowenhaupt resigned from the squad and Simpson was elected captain. Tischendorf regained his position at center. The pivot man of this combination was Hofmann. All tive of the men who played until the season ended will be lost to Mt. Vernon next year. Among the "ice men" who showed up well were C. Simpson, Yunker and Woodward. These men will help in the building of the next year's team. Using the number of games won and lost as the basis of statistics, the 1923-24 season was not a success. Using sportsmanship as the basis, it was very successful. Wins over Newburg, Reitz, New Harmony and Tenny- son comprised the games in the win column of the local boys. Mt. Vernon took part in two tournaments, the county and the sectional. The county was lost to Poseyville in the first game. ln the sectional they won their first game from Tennyson, but lost their second tilt to the.Boon- ville team. Their entire season record is fifteen defeats and tive wins with Nov a percentage of .250. BOYS' BASKET BALL SCHEDULE Here . Vernon Wadesville, Mt , Nov. Here Mt.

Vernon Saturday, February the twenty-third was the reddest of red letter days for Mt. Vernon High. That was the day of the Posey County Tournament, which was held in the Armory under the auspices of the Posey County Athletic Association. All the true sons and daughters of M. V. H. S. were aglow with hospitality and school loyalty as they greeted our guests from Poseyville, Wadesville, Stewartsville, New Harmony, Cynthiana and Griftin. Each group of representatives seemed determined to show all the other em- bassies what real pep and sportsmanship meant, and all of them succeeded, too. Hats off to Posey County, and also to Poseyville, the victor! A substantial sum of money was cleared, which dispelled for this year, at least, the annual nightmare of frenzied finance which has harassed us at the end of each basket ball season, from time immemorial. Some of the more enterprising students, under the leadership of Miss Page and Miss Clements, sold sandwiches, "pop," candy and popcorn-and never, as long as the tournament itself is remembered, will the memory of Miss Clements sedately drawing some kid's "sure 'nuff" wagon loaded with Eskimo pies and chewing gum be forgotten. Just as ludicrous was the sight of Zim, Mort and Miss Page and others stoically bringing up the rear. Sweet memories! Immortal as the State Champs shalt thou be! Page Forty-Four A INWEI THE Hoop Pote IMWEI Girls' Basket Ball Under the coaching and direction of Mr. Allgood and Miss Clements the Mt. Vernon girls developed into another Championship squad. Although the girls did not achieve their highest goal, that of being the State Cham- pions, they were the undisputed Champs of Southern Indiana by virtue of their victories over the Owensville and Reitz sextettes. Hal Berges, in pick- ing his feminine all-sectional team gave to M. V. H. S. four places on the first team, two places on the second and one honorable mention. Coach Allgood and Coach Clements deserve much praise for the way they instructed their cohorts. Without them the team this year would probably not have made such a glorious record. They were not only coaches but advisers and friends. They explained to the girls the funda- mental principles of the game and taught them the technical points which are very vital to a winning aggregation. The season started with a bang, Stewartsville being the first victim by an overwhelming count. Next to fall in line under the mighty onslaught of the Red and White was Wadesville. Two defeats at the hands of the Mt. Vernon girls were enough for the up-county sextette. Stewartsville then went down to defeat for a scond time. A victory over Alumnae and then the first defeat of the season was administered to the locals by the Turner Club of Evansville. The Champs then took the Newburg six in tow and later lost to the Huntingburg girls. Reitz tied Mt. Vernon once and lost to them once. Owensville, Newburg, Boonville, First Bethany of Evansville, and New Har- mony lost to the Mt. Vernon girls. After playing the schedule with only one interscholastic game lost, the Champs issued :1 challenge in The Indianapolis Star. Sullivan was the only team that answered. The State Title was the honor which would fall to the winner. Sullivan defeated the locals 22 to 16. Pauline Short will lead the girls next year, and with the following girls McGregor, Freimiller, Grabert, Wade, R. Blackburn, a very fast fighting lit- tle team will represent the Mt. Vernon high school.

She managed to drop in the winning counters in several of the big games. In the pinch she always displayed her cool-headedness and calm manner. These factors, combined with her cheery disposition, made her the best forward and all round player on the squad. By graduation this year the school loses "Zim" and the best little player that has represented the school for quite awhile. Berges selected her for first place on his all-sectional team. FLORENCE HOVEY-Forward At the beginning of the season Coach Allgood had a hard time finding a run- ning mate for Zimmerman. His choice for the first games was Hovey. "Foddy" plays a fighting game all the time she is in the contest and her guard has a hard time keeping her under cover. She gets honorable mention with the all-sectional sextette. Florence graduates this year. SARAH KATHERINE McGREGOR-Forward "Skeezix" is one of the most artistic and graceful young players in "The Pocket." She is full of fight and knows the game from A to Z. On the foul tosses she seldom fails. Her size enables her to slip away from her guards. She and Hovey alternated at forward. She was chosen as forward on the second all-section- al team. Berges says her inexperience is all that kept her from the first. She is a Sophomore and should do great things for M. V. H. S. in the next two years. VERYL STALLINGS-Center One would never guess that Stallings was the star center of the Mt. Vernon High unless one knew her record. She has caged more baskets than any other player on the team. She scored as high as twenty baskets in one game. Besides being good on the offensive she is a whizz on the defensive. She ranks with "Zim" on the first all-sectional. Veryl graduates this year. PAULINE SHORT-Guard "Shorty" began the season as a forward but Coach Allgood soon recognized her guarding ability and shifted her to that position where she played like an old timer. She plays a steady game and holds down the third position of the three girl defense in great style. "Shorty" was selected to pilot the 1925 team and a very capable captain she will make. She was ranked on the all-sectional second team. She has one more year to represent the Red and White on the hardwood. MYRA BLACKBURN-Guard In Myra M. V. H. S. had a real guard. She held her opponents scoreless dur- ing the first live games and during the season she allowed her opponent forwards but few baskets. Myra thinks that every point that her opponent makes is her fault. That's the right spirit! Berges places her on his all-sectional first team and says she should rate the mythical all-state. Myra graduates this spring. EDNA DEXHEIMER-Guard Also in the line ot' star basket hall players, stands "Dex." She followed the ball all the while, and was ready for it when it came her way. Her close guarding prohibited her forwards from scoring. "Dex" also won a berth on the first all- sectional. BETTY FREIMILLER-Utility Player "Betty" wa.s one of the most important players this year because she could play every position on the team. At center she was good. At forward she was better. But at guard she was at her best. The opposing forward could not get around her for very many field goals. "Betty" played in several of the big games this year and showed up like a comet. She is a Sophomore this year and will be with the school 'two more years. CORA BOKELMAN-Sub Guard ' With "Bokf' at guard, subbing, the defense work went on just the same. No more field goals were made witl1 her than would have been made with the regular player in the contest. She was always ready to play when her time came and she played to win. "Bok" was always smiling no matter how the game was going. She will surely be missed next year. Page Forty-Seven IMVHEI THE Hoop vote IMVHEQ TRACK One of the -most successful track seasons that the Mt. Vernon High School has ever had was the season of 1023-24. In this year the cindermen held two triangular meets. The tirst one was with Wadesville and Owens- ville High Schools. The locals carried off nearly all of the honors winning the meet by a total of 62 M points. Wadesville made 172 and Owensville, 14. The second triangular meet was between Mt. Vernon, Central and Reitz. Mt. Vernon did not show up so well against these teams but was not out of it altogether. Reitz won with 45 1-3 points, Central second with 28 1-3 and Mt. Vernon third with 25 1-3. Among the high point men for the locals were Collins, Green, Klotz, Wallace, Dieterle,Russell, Hofmann, Causey and McFadden. Causey was the only local man in the district meet at Evansville. He won a third. Those who remain for this year's team are C. McFadden, H. McFad- den, Hofmann, Causey, Tennison, Collins, Dieterle, K. Simpson, Woodward, G. Russell, C. Russell, T ischendorf and Yunker. Page Forty-Eight 2 ' v Q-5 P IWW!

To the Booster Club belongs the credit for the school's many splendid programs, as well as its lively pep sessions. Billy Mann, as yell leader, was also an important factor in the boosting of our school. The otiicers of the club were elected at the beginning of the school year and held their ofice for one year. They are as follows: President, Joseph Collins, Vice President, Alfred Kiltzg Secretary, Helen Joestg Treasurer, Sarah K. McGregor, Yell Leader, Bill Mann. The program committee is: Chairman, Pauline Short, Assistants, Margaret Brinkman and Harold Ranes. Page Forty-Niue: A WWE! THE Hoop POLE.

A rather large number of the boys responded to the call and the work went on splendidly under the leadership of Rev. Jones. The Bible Study besides be- ing a good thingj in itself has enabled the students to further their knowledge in its study. The boys who participated in the activities of this club gained, not only an excellent knowledge of the Bible, but also credit if they passed the state examination. We hope that next year a larger group of boys will take ad- vantage of this splendid opportunity. The following ofticers were elected: President, Harold Ranesg Secre- tary, Richard Hurley.

Your ability to solve them properly will determine your success or failure. The tests are sure to comeg will you measure up to the respon- sibility? The answer is with you.

THE Hoop Poke lMVH5l Seniors Everywhere Onre summer during harvest time my Uncle John Hargrave, my cousin Harry, two of my chums, James Goodwin and Jack Hartley, and l decided to visit an uncle of mine, for a vacation trip. We had completed oll our preparations and had Hlled the baggage carrier with the camping outfit. We were all ready to go. "All-yn Boyce," called Uncle John. We all piled in and were off with a hurrah. "There's one thing sure," called Uncle John, "we'll be bothered with neither-Sutt-ner Sand-ers Cinders,l because this car doesn't burn coal and our trip will be over improved roads." After a few hours travel we passed an old building covered with Vines, and Uncle John' fsjson said, "Dad tell me what that is.' ' "I Wil-son," he replied. Before he could answer the question Jack cried out, "Why, that's a Haus-man." "Oh, I know that," replied Harry, "but I mean that thing there by it." 'tOh, that's a corn-Schellerf' Uncle John then remarked, "There surely isn't anyone living there now as there is no Stock around, but that certainly would be a Rair-den for rob- bers if it were not located on such a public road." V We soon left the old building behind and a very prosperous looking farm came into view. Upon seeing some horses in the barnlot James called out, "ls that a Coult-er horse? " "Why, that's a young colt," replied Uncle John, "but he surely is Given some of the other horses a merry chase, and there's a Hog-an some chickens, and look how funny that Hen-dri qnl ks water." As we neared the house we heard a woman Collin' some one. When she saw us she ran out and waved her hands frantically. As the car stopped she told us that her husband had Bernd himself, and asked if we would come in and help her. We entered the house and found that her husband had a Blackburn on his arm. We dressed the wound quickly and for our kindness they asked us to remain for dinner, to which we readily consented. While waiting for dinner Jack said, 'fCome on boys, let's go out and watch that Fellemende binder." After he had completed the repair we fol- lowed him into the field and watched the men shocking wheat. We heard one of the men say, "Kapp-'er-man, you don't need any more bundles in that shock." Jim asked, "What does he mean by capping the shock? " Uncle John explained that they spread two bundles over the top of the shock. He then Page N inety-Four i WHS: THE Hoop note lMVH5j f told us that some Miller would take the wheat and make it into flour, and that we might sometime eat this same wheat in bread. After dinner we thanked the people for their hospitality and continued on our journey. As we were leaving the house, we almost ran over a hen, which was trying to Nesler chicks, but with a Russell and a flutter they man- aged to get out of the way. ' A little farther down the road we came upon a little boy sitting by an old cart crying. We stopped and asked him what was wrong and he said. "McCart-y's not much account and is about to break down." We pushed the cart off to the side of the road and took him to find his father. Our first r,ight's camping was delightful since a pleasant Breeze blew all night which ,made sleeping very comfortable. V The next morning we decided we wanted a chicken for breakfast, so James went to a nearby farm house and began to Barter for a springer, but he thought the price of 731 was too much and offered SOC, then 60c, then 65c and yet could not come to an agreement. Finally he said, "Now this is my Forthoffer. l'll give you 75c and no more." James won for he came back with the springer which together with hot coffee made a very tasty meal. . The last day's journey was uneventful and in the evening as we drove into a small town we passed a large playground, where several young people were playing Tennis-on croquet. We stopped to watch the games for awhile, but one impudent young fellow called us "hayseeds." We concluded that we would rather drive on than to raise a Rowe, but before leaving we had the satisfaction of hearing Uncle John say to Harry, loud enough for the smart fellow to hear, "He's nothing but a Simp-son, and doesn't know any better. " ' We were compelled to stay in an old hut our second night on account of Ranes. The thjUt-ley in the edge of a large wood and afforded a nice shelter from the storm. The next morning when we were ready to leave we missed Harry. Just then we heard a shot and presently Harry came into view with a fine young squirrel dangling from his belt. His father called to him, "Hurry up, and get in the Car-son, we must be on our way." The road that we were following led through swampy land which was being improved. When this land is All-dredge-d and drained it will be valu- able because of its fertility. The third night was spent on the banks of a beautiful little stream. The next morning Jack, who had awakened earlier than the rest of us, brought in for breakfast a ine cathsh held by a string which he had run through its Gill. When fried, this fish made a very appetizing dish. This day's travel concluded our journey and late that evening we reached our destination. Page Ninety-Five WHS!

He realizes the only monopoly which is sound and sure is the monopoly of universal friendship. Like pigmies or like dwarfs do those men of today appear who seek a business slogan which is "clever," or which has a "punch," or which makes an ingenious "tie up H On the other hand, what is more inspiring than the thought which today's business man is adopting--the thought that if he wishes to suc- ceed, he must first see to the welfare of others. lt seems to us that those dreamers who talk of the millennium are not such clreamers after all. It seems to us that nothing on earth can be finer than a civilization where success must rely on the square deal where it is practical to give rather than to take. You, our young friends, are entering a new world. We want you to be happy and prosperous as you journey through life. We know and you will learn that real happiness comes from giving to others and help- ing the other fellow-whether he be a friend, a foe, a competitor or a stranger. lt is for this reason that we give you this message. lt is only a humble contribution to the glory of that greatest Business Man of all, who, nearly two thousand years ago, gave the world that immortal slo- gan which we hope you will carry with you each day of the coming years--- "Do unto others as ye would have others do unto you."
