' N OTHER year has coine and gone.
Another crew of never-tiring sea-
farers sail into the turbulant waters of
actual conflict. Central has been the
training-ship of that determined, loyal,
d ever-ready crew. As the pirates
ought unceasingly for their booty, so
will this hearty band of '28 have to
fight gallantly for success, the prize of
ll noble lives.
We hope that for years to come this
" book will help to recall the friendships,
ideals, and spirit of Central High
,X School. If it fulfills its purpose, our
X9 forts will have been well spent.

As an expression of our appreciation
ana' esteem for Mary L. Kibele, who
as captain of the good ships MAGI-
CIAN ancl MUNSONIAN has braved
all storms and troubles to guide
tlaem safely to port, we dedicate
this edition of tlae Central High
School Yearbook. A

CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL
HE first high school in Muncietown was organized in
1867 in the basement of the old Universalist Church.
Approximately thirty pupils were enrolled. Hamilton S.
McRae was chosen as the first superintendent and Miss
Emma Montgomery as the first principal.
In 1873 the school moved into a frame building stand-
ing where Central now stands. The average enrollment
was fifty. In all, four teachers were in charge, Mrs. Mar-
tha Ivins being one of the force. Some months later, Miss
Emma Cammack was added to the faculty.
In 1880 the old frame building was replaced by a three-
story brick structure. It was indeed a large school for a
town the size of Muncie, but the constant increase in pop-
ulation brought about the necessity for a larger and a
more adequately equipped building. In 1914 our own
Central High School was erected.
It has an elastic curriculum. A student seeking to
broaden his general knowledge, to prepare for college, or
GIRLS' SEWING CLUB
to acquire specialized training has countless opportuni-
ties to develop himself into a citizen Well equipped for
In our high school one can major in any of the follow-
ing courses: college preparatory, general, bookkeeping,
music, shorthand, art, applied electricity, Woodwork,
printing, home economics, drafting, and machine shop.
In the college preparatory course stress is laid
quate foundation work in English, mathematics,
and foreign language with a View to meeting the
ments of the first-class colleges.
The general course is planned for those persons
not certain what vocation they expect to follow.
the basic requirements of so many courses that

girl a Well-rounded conception of the subjects contrib-
uting to the welfare of the home and help her to find her
place in the world.
A few things emphasized in the bookkeeping depart-
ment are the study of proprietorship, partnership, and
corporation accounting. After completing this course one
should be able to put the knowledge gained into practice.
The shorthand course is so organized that the pupils
will be able to do intelligently and efficiently the work
required by the best business offices. The fourth semester
is devoted to office practice.
The music course of Central High School offers two
different types of study. The first gives the student who
desires to major in music a definite course of study. The
second offers an opportunity to develop a greater under-
standing and appreciation of music without detailed study.
The course in applied electricity not only prepares the
boys directly for a professional career, but also for con-
tinuing their training in higher institutions. This course
is valuable for young men who are planning to follow en-
gineering work in college.
The carpentry department should be praised for its
Wonderful Work. Since 1925 three modern homes and six
garages valued at 529,000 have been built as a result of the
labors of this group. The fourth house is now being con-
structed. At present Central High School has the best-
equipped electrical laboratory and most extensive carpen-
try department in the middle West.
Printing is undoubtedly one of the most valuable of our
departments. It is both a manual and a cultural study.
At the same time that one is acquiring knowledge in spell-
ing, English, arithmetic, art, and designing, he is also learn-
ing the art of manipulating the presses. In practical Work
the student becomes acquainted with all of the types of
Work of the modern print shop. The setting of type, press
feeding, designing of advertisements and display cards,
proof reading, and news items are handled in detail. In
this department our weekly, THE MUNSONIAN, is printed.
Drafting is a very beneficial course. It deals largely
with the designing of materials and machines, their details
and assembly. The drafting department assists various cit-
izens and firms of the city in making house plans and
Since the metal trades in Muncie employ more men than
any other industry, the machine-shop practice course pre-
sents a field of unlimited opportunities. Ready employ-
ment and the assurance of advancement spur the boys on
to their best efforts.
In order to avoid haphazard choosing of one,s high
school courses, an advisory system has been instituted by
means of which every pupil receives advice in regard to
the subjects which will best fit him for his chosen trade
If the plans of the board of education are carried out,
beginning with next September the junior high school or-
ganization will be, in a measure, perfected and Central
Will offer only senior high school work. Every effort is
being made to make our school efficient and up to date.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF '28
IT was in September of ,24 that the children who were
to become seniors in '28 were ushered into room 324
of Central High School by Mrs. Nay. Their ignorance be-
ing a source of embarrassment to themselves, they studied
hard. In their second year in Central High, Miss Hutzel
was in charge of their assembly, 221.
The next year, Miss Jamieson took the scepter of au-
thority over them in 306. The class elected oihcers. Those
destined to rule that year were Fred Van Skyke, president,
Merill Smith, vice-president, Mary Ellen Kuhner, secretary-
treasurer, Robert Hodupp, sergeant-at-arms. The class
did great things. It won the pennant offered by the Boys'
Pep Club for the largest class delegation in the school pep
parade prior to the Elwood-Muncie football game, it had
a dance, and produced an extremely successful play, "Bab.',
Last autumn saw the class in 206 with the Misses Tuhey
and Lewellen in charge. After a stirring campaign, Fred
was re-elected president. The first activity of the year
was a gypsy dance. Then in the centennial parade the
senior boys won a pennant for the best display of marching
ability. One of the memorable events of the year was the
tea for mothers of seniors. The class play was "Mrs, Part-
'Twas June 7 when the freshmen of ,24 walked out of
Central as graduates, cherishing memories of the happiest
days of their lives, their high school days.

Members of the staff have worked unceasingly to make a better
MAGICIAN than ever before. In order to accomplish this, some new fea-
tures have been added which are expected to improve the book. In the
1928 yearbook there is a description of Central and its progress since it
was the first high school in Delaware County, included also are the class
prophecy and the history of the class of '2 8. Besides the added features,
an effort has been made to identify the pupils appearing in group pictures,
and color has been added to the pages. The staff hopes that its time
has been well spent.

MAGICIAN BUSINESS STAFF
More than one thousand MAGICIANS were sold this year through the
combined efforts of the boys, and girls' sales teams. The girls, team,
Marjorie Pearson, captain, sold over one hundred more annuals than did
the boys' team, Willis Palmer, captain, and was therefore banqueted by
the boys. Both teams were aided by the publicity manager, Paul Icerman.
Junior Marx, Arch Prosser, and Ed Malnoski, advertising solicitors, sold
enough advertising to permit THE MAGICIAN, though containing features
that added to its cost, to be sold at last year's price.
Members of the girls' sales teams were Marjorie Pearson, Harriet Cra-
bill, Mary Elizabeth Colvin, Edna Casper, Sara Chalfant, Dorothy Downs,
Emily Durst, Catherine Hofer, Phila Johnson, Doris Kinzie, Mary Ellen
Kuhner, Florence Ludington, Emily Lyons, Jane Ryan, Bethel Williams.

i GIRLS' PEP CLUB
The Girls' Pep Club was organized in 1924 with Miss
Florence Wilson as sponsor. The club since its organization
has endeavored to promote better spirit and comradeship
among the girls of Central High. It has always stood for
what is highest and best in athletics. Central's teams have
been no more loyally supported by any group than by the
Girls' Pep Club.
Throughout the past year the club has been well repre-
sented at each game and has proved itself worthy of the
name "pep club." The present members hope that in the
coming years the club will continue to function, and that
members of the future will ever be as faithful and loyal
as past members have been to dear old Central High.

1 MUNSQNIAN STAFF li
THE MUNSONIAN is the weekly paper edited and published by the
pupils of Cenaral High School. It was begun ten years ago as a five-
column paper, although at that time it was not published every week.
Later, when it was published weekly, its size was reduced to three col-
umns. It has grown until it now consists of five columns. Thirty or Q,
more issues are published in the school year of thirty-six weeks. E.
The motto of the paper is "Central First and Last." It acts as sponsor
for all school activities, including athletics and high school organizations.
It brings to the pupils of Central the interesting incidents which happen
in their school. It has well-written news stories, editorials, and humor. -
The staff members who are graduated each year are replaced by mem- A
bers of a class which meets daily for one semester to learn the funda- 3,
mentals of newswriting and to contribute a few articles to the paper. i
Admission to the class is by tryout only. i

THE "M" CLUB
The "Mn club was first organized in 1898 for the pur-
pose of representing fair play and clean sportsmanship. It
is composed of a group of athletes who, in winning the
monogram of their school, must have put forth a stren-
uous eifort to bring honor to Central High School.
An alumni club of "M" men also exists. Its members
are leaders among the Bearcat boosters of Muncie.

The Dramatic Club resumed activities this year with
the purpose it has had in previous years- the promoting
of dramatic ability among Central High School pupils, the
development not of a select few, but of a great number
of pupils so that a more representative group of members
may in this way be secured. The club does not aim at the
betterment of dramatics alone, however, but attempts to
foster a greater spirit of amiability among pupils of Central.
The Dramatic Club has been unusually busy this year.
Activities opened with the annual fall play, followed by
a Thanksgiving play given for the Kiwanis Club, a Christ-
mas party, a potluck supper, a one-act Christmas play, the
annual spring play, and the annual dinner closing the season

The Hi-Y Club was organized in February, 1921, with the purpose in
mind of creating, maintaining, and extending throughout our high school
and community high standards of Christian character. The aims are:
clean living, clean speech, clean athletics, and clean scholarship. The
members believe that hard work is the only thing that ever produces
Worthwhile people and that it pays worthwhile dividends. The sissy, the
coward, and the rowdy are despised. Boys who "toot their own horns"
are not wanted, because they are too busy 'ttootingu to work.

THE 1927 FOOTBALL SEASON
The 1927 Bearcat football season was true to tra-
dition. lt was one of the most successful gridiron
seasons Central High School has experienced since the
innovation of that sport in our school.
The squad began its training activities at the
Muncie Y. M. C. A. football camp, Camp Crosley,
along with grid athletes from other high schools:
Goshen, Shortridge of Indianapolis, Rochester, Bryan
COhioQ, Portland, and Wabash. At camp the boys
were put through vigorous workouts by coaches Pete
Vaughan of W'abasl1 College, Heze Clark of Ruse
Polytechnic, Gaumy Neal, former Washington and
jefferson star, and M. W. Tarelock, ex-Indiana grid-
man. Muncie's new coaches, Walter Fisher and Nor-
man Durham, made their introduction to the Bearcats
at the camp and started the purple-and-white gridders
on the Way. Knute Rockne, football coach of Notre
Dame, visited the camp and gave the assembled ath-
letes zi very interesting talk. The famous coach also
gave the Muncie squad some individual attention.
The Muncie squad brought home first honors in the
football field day and the track and aquatic meet.
Red Myers, Bearcat backheld ace, won a loving cup
for making the highest number of points in the foot-
ball Hcld day.

scheduled opponent, whom they defeated, 13 to 0.
It was a hot day and the field was dusty. The game
was slowed up considerably on this account and both
teams were penalized frequently.
The bearcats tasted their only defeat of the season
in the second game when they battled the more ex-
perienced Emerson crew from Gary. The score was
0 to 6 against them. The Golden Tornado's only
score came towards the end of the third quarter when
a yellow-jerseyed Emerson warrior trundled over the
Muncie goal line. It was a hard-fought game on a
Held of deep mud.

Linton came to Muncie as one of the most danger- l
ous elevens in southern Indiana and went away with ,f
the short end of a 20-to-6 score. The contest was
full of excitement and was featured by many spec-
tacular plays. Incidentally, Linton tied with the Bear-
cats as champions of the Big Ten Conference.
Muncie's purple-clad gridders subjugated their time-
honored rivals, the Giants of Marion, by the score of
19 to 6. The Bearcat line was considerably improved,
and it tore gaps in the Giant line through which the
backs went at will. The game was played on the
Marion field. '

ln the Bearcat home-coming game the purple-
jerseyed Centralites met the strong Mishawaka Cave-
men and succeeded only in tying them, 6 to 6. The
Bearcats threatened the vistors' goal several times,
but a pentalty and the timer's gun cut thm from pos-
sible victory. The game was scoreless until the final
quarter when both teams tallied. The Bearcats, touch-
down came in the last few minutes after a series of
successful forward passes.
Elwood furnished the opposition in the last game
of the season on the purple's card. The score was
33 to 0 in favor of the Bearcats.
Muncie tied with Linton as champion of the North
Central Conference with a percentage of .800, for
which she received a beautiful silver football trophy.

Wrestling was added to Central's list of sports this year and a team was organized
under the tutelege of Coach Walter Fisher. The advantage of this historic sport over
other types of athletics is that weight is neither an asset nor a liability, since each par-
ticipant competes only With those in his own weight class. Wrestling is a wonderful
body developer and every muscle of the body is exercised to the full extent. A grappler
must train faithfully and work diligently in order that he may build up strength and
endurance for match competition. A match is eight minutes long and the winner must
either pin his opponent's shoulders to the mat for three seconds Qfall, 10 pointsj or
he must have the greater time advantage Qbe behind his opponent longerj. The winner
of a match in which neither of the participants is pinned is determined by a decision,
the man having the greater time advantage winning Qsix pointsj.
Central's wrestling team engaged in six dual meets-two with Wabash, two with
Bedford, and two with Bloomington, but lost each meet to their more experienced op-
ponents. They amended these matters, however, by placing fourth in the state grappling
meet. Davidson, 175-pounder, Won the championship of the light-heavyweight division.
Thornburg, 100-pounderg Green, 135-pounder, and Leaky, heavyweight, won the third-
place medals of their divisions. Litchfield, 135-pounder, and Ransopher, 155-pounder,
won fourth places in their divisions. Incidentally, Ransopher weighs 135 pounds but
fought in the 155-pound class.
Hats off to these Bearcat grapplers.

THE 1928 BASKETBALL SEASCN
STATE CHAMPIONS: p
The 1927 Bearcat basketball team recorded the first
state championship in the annals of Central High
School athletics. It was the fifth time a Bearcat quin-
tet had battled its way to the annual Hoosier classic.
Munciels victory fulfilled years of expectation and
came as a result of the old traditional Bearcat fight
and determination. To be crowned the champion of
seven hundred and forty I. H. S. A. A. teams is a
wonderful honor, especially when the competition is
as keen as it was in 1928. For instance, the Muncie-
Anderson game in the second round of the state tour-
namentg Anderson led Muncie for twenty-nine and
one-half minutes out of the thirty and at one time
by twelve points, but the characteristic Bearcat rally
could not be checked and Muncie won the game,
38 to 37. Again, in the final contest, our boys came
through and downed Martinsville 13 to 12 in the last
forty seconds of play, cinching the championship
A title thus won is truly deserved.
Practice was started the first of November and
sixty-three boys answered the first call. At the close
of the football season the squad was strengthened by
candidates from the gridiron. In the first game, De-
cember 2, it was rather a ragged-looking crew that

bettered Huntington 29 to 19. The purple netters
were given their Hrst real test two days before Christ-
mas when they beat their friendly enemy, Newcastle,
35 to 34. The Bearcats displayed their best brand of
basketball at Martinsville and trounced the Artesians
45 to 40. Bedford presented a crafty brand of ball
but the Purple vanquished them 26 to 21. In the
first game of the new year the Frankfort Fighting
Five fell by the wayside with the small end of a
33-to-24 count. Evidently the Bearcats hit a slump
in the middle of January, for they were defeated
twice in succession. Vincennes pulled the unexpected
and beat them 38 to 32, and Logansport's strong
quintet dropped the Muncie team 32 to 30. At Gary
the Bearcats won a last-minute victory over Emerson's
Norsemen with a score of 28 to 26. The Centralites
conclusively proved their supremacy over Newcastle
when they turned in a 35-to-20 win over the Rose
The sectional tournament proved to be of little
difiiculty for the Bearcats and they won it easily.
The regional tournament, however, furnished some
opposition. Newcastle was a little stubborn, and the
Magic City boys were forced to subdue them 23 to
17. Mt. Comfort fought hard, but the purple-and-
white-clad warriors succeeded in overpowering them
33 tO 28.

North Central Conference Champions
Track is Central's main spring sport. The first event of the 1927
season was the inter-class track meet. The sophomores led the field with
the seniors, juniors, and freshmen following in close order. Fowlkes of
the sophomores was high-point man of the meet with five first places.
McConnaughy, a senior, placed second for the individual honors with
The Muncie thinlies lost their Hrst interscholastic meet when the
Technical High School trackmen of Indianapolis outpointed them 48 to
42. Central garnered six first places to Tech's four, but the Capital City
crew took more second and third places. Newcastle was Muncie's first
victim and they were defeated 58 to 41 on the Newcastle oval.
In a triangular meet with Muncie, Richmond, and Union City com-
peting, the Bearcat cinder artists again came to the front and won with
58 points to Richmond's 30 and Union City's 11. In the Greencastle in-
vitational meet the Central tracksters came second to Manual of Indian-
apolis who copped the blue ribbon honors.
At the district track and field meet the Bearcat scanty-clads came

PROPHECY OF CLASS OF 1928
"All aboard- last call 'fore leaving!" Thus greeted, I dashed madly-desperately,
down the dock to throw myself upon the deck before the S. S. Magician rode out of
the New York harbor on the crest of the out-going tide.
In my frantic haste to make the deck I slid into a portly chap, who sat upon me
with an ejection of "Erif-f! What a niz-Z-z-e soft cushion-plenty!" I scrambled
to my feet to find myself gazing into the ruddy, smiling face of the greatest authority
on monkey glands, Herschel Austin.
Still puffing from the exertion, I introduced myself and in a short time we were
throwing a line of gab. -
Here it was 1940, and I hadn't heard anything of the crowd within the last ten years.
Hersch, being a much-travelled fellow, slipped me this dope concerning a few of
the gang he had come across during his wanderings:
"I took a notion to have a cup of tea at the Yankee Coffee Shop in London, and,
being a man of leisure, I stepped in, and guess whom I saw,-Harry Alley, Howard
Davis, Kenneth Davis, Ivan Calicoat, and Herbert Piepho, who were entertaining the
topers with their music. A dance was headlined by Reba Atkinson and Vera Bane,
who were soon known as The Sweethearts of London. Wilma Lyons, Florence Manford,
Genevieve Warfel, and Erma Longerbone were waitresses and stockholders of the Coffee
Shop, and Genevieve waited on my table. While engaged in a brief conversation, I
learned that the manager of the place was Paul Hickman, that old hold-back on Cen-
tral's Eleven. Imagine him a head-man in a muddy water shop on the Mall! Paul was
able to ease me some dope on a few class members of whom I had not seen or heard.
" 'You remember George Adams?' " he asked. " 'Well, he stopped the other day
and gave me his card with the appellation Rear Admiral of the Dirty Neck Republic,
attached. He's running a five-hundred-ton tramp, ably assisted by First-mate Walter
Tyler and Second-mate Harold Dull. They always pick the most inopportune times to
search for the missing cylinders of the ship engine, an engine run by personal magnetism,
designed and patented by Everett Johnson. V
" 'Howard Birt and Glen Tinkle have gone into vaudeville, headlining in York-
town, Daleville, and Chesterfield. Howard sings mezzo-tenor and Tinkle sings terrible
" 'Heedlie Cobb, silver-tongued orator of '28, is doing evangelistic work through
the country. His doctrine is: Go to church on Sunday and save the money you would
spend on shows-quite economical and logical even though Billy Piner does follow
each sermon with the plea: Spend your money now and save your pockets to keep your
" 'Luther Butler and Art Davidson have joined company and under the name of
the Hoosier Heavy Hurlers have taken the continent with twists and jerks. They are
ably bally-hooed by Bob Hodupp, and George Hoover pulls down two bits a quid clear,
as manager of these tough babies.
" 'Hugh Daugherty is going over big in the cake business. The secret of his success
is that he furnishes a chisel and hammer with every package. Walter Keever and Mar-
garet Grooms hitched strings and their little Keevers have been ably tutored through
their tender years by Pauline Baldwin, Allene Lamb, Marie Cross, and Thelma Donovan,
who have a kindergarten at S10 per lesson and points up.
" 'Bob Ray is an entrant in the 1942 Olympic, to race with Sleeping Beauty, the
tortoise who at present is given three-to-one odds.
" 'Iantha Tyler has started a bigger and better cap and gown factory for high
schools and kindergartens.
" 'Helen Zook is in Paris buying draperies and laces for the Fifth Avenue Fashion
Shop, operated jointly by Agnes Dowling, O al Venable, Ella May Meade, and Vera

who has made a name for herself as a reporter. Alice Goodwin has become a famous
novelist and literary critic. Marceyl Evans is leading model for Red Rose Shampoo,
while Olive Dawson is the head advertiser for the Long Life Hair Tonic Corporation,
owned and operated by Joe Osborne, Earl Graham, and Rollin Jenney.
" 'Jack Brazier and Kenneth Mills, tired of ushering, now own a string of theatres
from coast to coast.
" 'john Graham is teaching trig to the natives in Africa,s innermost regions.
" 'Nelle Tharpe is managing a chain of Hve and ten cent stores in Paris.
"'Kathleen Williams has set up exclusive jewelry stores next to these Hve and
ten cent stores, but competition has almost put her on the rocks.
l"John Grace and Bob Durham started in the wholesale piano business. Their
motto was, "Send a Piano to Your Friend by Wire." Eunice Martin was one of the
first to order a piano. She is now teaching music in the New York School for the
Deaf and Dumb.
" 'Marie Schlenker is selling music in Tin Pan Alley.

"'Roger Pelham is running air transports from New York to Liverpool, ably
assisted by the better-half, once known as Florence Andres.
" 'William Wedmore is doing eccentric dancing in Broadway's largest cabaret, being
ably supported by Nina Tinsley and Alberta Trego.
" 'Beanie Gallivan has gone over big in Scotland, hailed as savior and hero since
his recent innovation of non-breakable tooth-picks.'
"With this last statement, Hickman passed out and so did I. After we revived
somewhat," Hersch continued, "I made my adieus and stepped over to the Royal
Theatre where I took in the matinee performance of The King's Opera, which was
written by Rosalind Scranton and directed by James Hoffer. In a large headline across
the top of the program was emblazoned the name of Eugene Eber as' lead. He was
supported by Hilma Dawson, Rosemary Dakin, Emily Durst, Thelma Curry, Phila
Johnson, Margaret Millspaugh, Harriett Crabill, and Mary Johnson. 'As soon as the
matinee was over I dashed back stage and soon was in the midst of the gang with
whom I suffered back in '28, We talked for a while, then all motored to Paul Grundy,s
Sandwich Shop for a bite to eat. Eber, fresh from the States, had a lot of news for
the crowd and proceeded to dish it out after he had deposited a Grundy Special in his
"Lawrence Ammon and Joseph Reed have become lawyers of great repute. Their
greatest case was that of Wendell Austin against that of Bob Moffitt. It seems that
they were competitors in a long sleeping endurance test and Bob out-snored Wendell
two-to-one, thus gaining what he called a false decision.
"Clara McCaffery, Madonna Hobbick, and Evelyn Sherry are running a school for
dancing on Third Avenue, Chicago.

will extinguish a fire instead of the user.

Not How Long,
But How Well You Sleep
ID you ever stop to think how important
sleep is? Do you realize that one-third of
your life is spent in bed? Science has proven that
it's not how long, but how well you sleep that
really counts--and that is where the MCDORFST
bed springs come in. These perfect springs are
constructed so as to make possible perfect relax-
ation and therefore the maximum benefit from slum-
ber. MOOREST springs are the product of The Moore
Company, one of Muncie's chief industries for more
than seventeen years.

Whatever Is Worth Doing Q
Is Worth Doing Well Q
HE printing and binding of this book is the
work of the ScoTT PRINTING COMPANY, a li
home concern which has been identified with the il
progress of Muncie for more than thirty years. !
Since the days of the "Zetetic," back in 1896,
when the linotype was in its infancyg when every
type was set by hand, and the presswork was done Q
on a small job-printing press, every annual issued l
by this school has been the work of this same con- 1
cern, whose growth has been parallel with that of
Muncie High School and the city. E
