Muncie Central High School Muncie, Indiana 1928FOREWORD
NOT HER year has come and gone. Another crew of never-tiring seafarers sail into the turbulant waters of actual conflict. Central has been the training-ship of that determined, loyal, and ever-ready crew. As the pirates fought unceasingly for their booty, so trill this hearty band of ’28 have to fight gallantly for success, the prize of all noble lives.
We hope that for years to come this book will help to recall the friendships, ideals, and spirit of Central High School. If it fulfills its purpose, our efforts will have been well spent.' cAIiss Marij KiheI(L,
As an expression of our appreciation and esteem for Mary L. Kibele, who as captain of the good ships Maci-cian and Munsonian has braved all storms and troubles to guide them safely to port, we dedicate this edition of the Central High School Yearbook.

CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL
(j HE first high school in Muncietown was organized in J 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 standing where Central now stands. The average enrollment was fifty. In all, four teachers were in charge, Mrs. Martha 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 population 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 toGIRLS’ SEWING CLUB
to acquire specialized training has countless opportunities to develop himself into a citizen well equipped for a career.
In our high school one can major in any of the following 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 on adequate foundation work in English, mathematics, history, and foreign language with a view to meeting the requirements of the first-class colleges.
The general course is planned for those persons who are not certain what vocation they expect to follow. It meets the basic requirements of so many courses that one can readily change.
The courses in the home economics department give the girl a well-rounded conception of the subjects contributing to the welfare of the home and help her to find her place in the world.PRINT SHOP
A few things emphasized in the bookkeeping department 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 understanding 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 continuing their training in higher institutions. This course is valuable for young men who are planning to follow engineering work in college.WOODWORK
The carpentry department should be praised for its wonderful work. Since 1925 three modern homes and six garages valued at $29,000 have been built as a result of the labors of this group. The fourth house is now being constructed. At present Central High School has the best-equipped electrical laboratory and most extensive carpentry 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 spelling, English, arithmetic, art, and designing, he is also learning 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 detailsMagician
and assembly. The drafting department assists various citizens and firms of the city in making house plans and blue-prints.
Since the metal trades in Muncie employ more men than any other industry, the machine-shop practice course presents a field of unlimited opportunities. Ready employment 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 or profession.
If the plans of the board of education are carried out, beginning with next September the junior high school organization 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.SCHOOL BOARD

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ’28
T T 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 being 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 authority over them in 306. The class elected officers. Those destined to rule that year were Fred Van Skyke, president; Mcrill 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. Partridge Presents.”
’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.

MAGICIAN EDITORIAL STAFF
Members of the staff have worked unceasingly to make a better Magician than ever before. In order to accomplish this, some new features 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.
Positions on the staff are as follows: editor-in-chief, Ralph O’Dell; advisers. Miss Mary Kibele and Miss Clare Hilling; senior pictures: Mary Elizabeth Colvin, James Hoffer, Leo McAllister, Mary Ellen Kuhner, David Meeks; organizations: Marian Jump, Mary Wallace, Robert Full; faculty pictures: Hiima Dawson, Wilma Hutto; underclass pictures: Mildred Ryan, Edna McCreery, Johnetta Ellison, Phila Johnson; snapshots: Doris Kinzie, Dorothy Bradford, Horace Martin, Paul Hickman, Florence Ludington; calendar: Marjorie Pearson, Joe Reed, Carl Noble; art: Esther Weir, Eunice Martin, Walter Keever; athletics: Dick Owens and Hays Young.Top Row — Frank Litchfield, Ed Keevcr, Junior Marx, John Graham, Arch Prosser, Edward Malnoski, Margaret Jane Ryan, Phila Johnson.

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 Crabill, 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.

The Central High School band was first organized in 1920, when it was a voluntary organization.
The band gave its second annual concert, April 19. It was a faithful support to the Bearcats during football and basketball seasons and has played before many of the civic clubs of Muncie.
The band has complete instrumentation, including flute, piccolo, oboe, clarinet, alto clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoons, saxophones, french horns, bass baritone, trombones, cornets, drums, and tympani. There are forty-five in the band.

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 represented 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.Magician

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 columns. It has grown until it now consists of five columns. Thirty or more issues are published in the school year of thirty-six weeks.
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 members of a class which meets daily for one semester to learn the fundamentals of newswriting and to contribute a few articles to the paper. Admission to the class is by tryout only.Top Row — Everett Johnson, Charles Brady, Kenneth Killin, Keifer Crawley, Alonzo McAllister.

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 Christmas party, a potluck supper, a one-act Christmas play, the annual spring play, and the annual dinner closing the season of 1927-28."THE YOUNGEST”
"The Youngest” was presented by the members of the Dramatic Club in the high school auditorium, November 11, 1927.

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 arc despised. Boys who "toot their own horns" are not wanted, because they are too busy "tooting" to work.

THE 1927 FOOTBALL SEASON
The 1927 Bearcat football season was true to tradition. It 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 Croslev, along with grid athletes from other high schools: Goshen. Shortridge of Indianapolis, Rochester, Bryan (Ohio), Portland, and Wabash. At camp the boys were put through vigorous workouts by coaches Pete Vaughan of Wabash College, He .e Clark of Rose Polytechnic, Gaumy Neal, former Washington and
Jefferson star, and M. W. Tatelock, ex-Indiana grid-man. Muncie’s new coaches, Walter Fisher and Norman Durham, made their introduction to the Bearcats at the camp and started the purp!c-and-whitc gridders on the way. Knute Rockne, football coach of Notre Dame, visited the camp and gave the assembled athletes a 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 backficld ace, won a loving cup for making the highest number of points in the football field day.Magician

Upon returning home, the Muncie squad had two weeks of practice before meeting Newcastle, the first 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 experienced 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 ycllow-jerseyed Emerson warrior trundled over the Muncie goal line. It was a hard-fought game on a field of deep mud.
Linton came to Muncie as one of the most dangerous elevens in southern Indiana and went away with the short end of a 20-to-6 score. The contest was full of excitement and was featured by many spectacular plays. Incidentally, Linton tied with the Bearcats 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.
Coach Fisher’s boys trampled over Tech of Indianapolis on the Tech gridiron by the overwhelming score

of J1 to 0. The line showed up wonderfully well, and the backs often made ten and twenty-yard gains on line bucks.
Brazil visited the Bearcats at the North Walnut Street Ball Park one beautiful autumn afternoon and the Bearcats rolled up a score of 32 to 0 on them. The count at the half was 12 to 0.
In the Bearcat home-coming game the purple-jerscycd Centralitcs met the strong Mishawaka Cavemen 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 possible 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 scries of successful forward passes.
filwood furnished the opposition in the last game of the season on the purple’s card. The score was 3 3 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. The Bearcats, however, hold a 20-to-6 win over Linton.
Two Bearcats — Sol Boston, end, and Captain Ky Wcdmorc, quarterback, received positions on the mythical all-state eleven, while Paul Hickman, guard, and Gene fiber, fullback, received honorable mention.

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 participant 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 grapplcr 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 cither pin his opponent’s shoulders to the mat for three seconds (fall, 10 points) or he must have the greater time advantage (be behind his opponent longer). 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 (six points).
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 opponents. 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-pounder; Green, 135-pounder, and Leaky, heavyweight, won the third-place medals of their divisions. Litchfield, 135-poundcr, 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.BASKETBALL

THE 1928 BASKETBALL SEASON
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 quintet had battled its way to the annual Hoosier classic.
Muncic’s 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-Andcrson game in the second round of the state tournament; 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 shield.
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, December 2, it was rather a ragged-looking crew that
bettered Huntington 29 to 19. The purple nctters were given their first real test two days before Christmas when they beat their friendly enemy, Newcastle, 3 5 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 3 3-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 o-20 win over the Rose City lads.
The sectional tournament proved to be of little difficulty 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.

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 fifteen points.
The Muncie thiniies lost their first 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.

"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 "Erff-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 Central’s Eleven. Imagine him a head-man in a muddy water shop on the Mall! Paul was able to case 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.
" 'Howard Birt and Glen Tinkle have gone into vaudeville, headlining in York-town, Daleville, and Chesterfield. Howard sings mezzo-tenor and Tinkle sings terrible tenor.
" '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 hands warm.
" 'Luther Butler and Art Davidson have joined company and under the name of the Hoosier Heavy Hurlcrs 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 Margaret 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 $10 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, Opal Venable, Ella May Meade, and VeraMagician
Wolfe. They often receive great write-ups in the New York Moon by Ophelia Nelson, 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 Tharpc is managing a chain of five and ten cent stores in Paris.
" 'Kathleen Williams has set up exclusive jewelry stores next to these five and ten cent stores, but competition has almost put her on the rocks.
" 'John Grace and Eob 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.
" 'Rolland Thomas is the champion cross-country walker and president of the antibunion commission.
" 'Mose Clark has a leading part in the new musical comedy, Handsome Harry.
" '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 1. 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 Miilspaugh, 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 ’2 8. 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 right jowl.
"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.
"Clinton Martin got tired of working for the Western Onion and bought it. Ghlee Hiles is the women’s candidate for president with her motto, "Bigger and Peppier Dances.”
"Junior Marx runs a chain of food supply stores for hungry moths and grasshoppers.
"Ward Middleton is still announcing prize-fights, the last one being a bout, between Donovan Losh and Bob Pershing for the championship of the Cooky-Pusher’s Club.
"Willis Palmer is pulling down a big salary as advertiser for the Wiggley Chewing Gum Company.
"Dick Owens has, after many years of study, perfected a fire-extinguisher which will extinguish a fire instead of the user.Magician
"Juanita Hiatt has been named head of the Children’s Suffrage Commission since the recent publishing of her great book called How to Spank the Child.
"Wilbur Small is in Madrid as yell leader at the bull fights. He is working in cooperation with Kenneth Tuttle, who is the idol of Spain.
"Carl Hays has become a great traveling cartoonist and is exhibiting his skill while acting as advance agent for his wife, the former Miss Emily Lyons, who is now traveling the European continent as an impersonator of Greta Garbo.
"Alice Everett is a successful telephone operator with four out of five, wrong numbers.
"Ed Malnoski and Harold Masters are running a cabaret on Main Street, in Muncie, Indiana. Their business took a slump about the middle of the year; so they sent out an S. O. S. for publicity which was promptly answered by Katherine Rink, Ruth Tuttle, Garnet Nihart, Madonna McAuley and Lorena Grieswcli. They introduced a new and cheap dance known as the George Washington Two Cent Stomp. Walter Tilford started a cigar store and hired Charles Stevens to do some sky-writing for him, advertising a new brand of cigarettes.
"Joe Kerr and Jack Ball went together and wrote a book called The Tragedy of The Flea.
"Wendell Ellison has succeeded Walter Damrosch as director of the New York Symphony. After his promotion to directorship he made a few valuable additions to his orchestra, Leo McAllister, Harold Stanley, and Chalmers King as cornetists, Carl Noble, pianist, Roger Nottingham as drummer and tympany player, John Winebrenner at peck horn, Albert Rickert, kazoo, Thomas Spann, violenette, with Bill Hubbard giving vocal refrains.”
Eber and the gang had to return to the theatre. I could not attend the evening performance for I had to make the eight o’clock boat the next morning for the States.
My next trip took me to Afghanistan to procure an order of cat’s eyebrows from the ruler. As I went into the office at Kabul, the capital, 1 saw Fred Flaherty. He was selling tickets and dictating notes on Salesmanship to his wife and stenographer, Mary Elizabeth Colvin. I asked Fred if he knew anything about the old gang. He said that Helen Arnold and Helen Buchanan were teaching home economics at the night school in Kabul. They were having fine attendance; with Bill Gibson and Henry French as assistants the women were bound to come. Paul Bunner and Ted Bender were selling finger nail files to elephants in the East Indies.
"Hallie Bechtell has ably played in Gilda Gray’s show as The Shining Wonder of the World.
"Bob Bibler and Kermit Biesmeyer are down at the equator selling coal to the natives during the winter.

ORTY years ago the Ball Brothers Company was moved from Buffalo, New York, to Muncie, Indiana. The first plant covered only ten acres and employed about seventy-five men. It was, incidentally, the first factory located in Muncie after the discovery of gas.
The "Ideal” and the "Perfect Mason” the Company’s chief products, are known the world over. Hardly a port or depot there is that has not at one time or other handled a shipment of Ball Fruit Jars. Thus Muncie is represented by the product of one of her greatest industries in every civilized country, and probably in some not so civilized. There is a great deal of truth in the saying, "Ball Brothers made Muncie.”

The Amusement Pride of Muncie — ?
HE Rivoli Theatre was not
built for today only, but constructed in the hope that it might be a monument for years to come and a credit to the community even when the city is many times its present size. To that end the attractions which the theatre presents promise to be in keeping with the magnificence of the playhouse.
The Rivoli combines a vaudeville and picture policy, showing the best stage attractions obtainable, in conjunction with the finest achievements in photo-plays.

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 MooRest bed springs come in. These perfect springs are constructed so as to make possible perfect relaxation and therefore the maximum benefit from slumber. MooRest springs are the product of The Moore Company, one of Muncie’s chief industries for more than seventeen years.Whatever Is Worth Doing
Is Worth Doing Well
9HE printing and binding of this book is the work of the Scott Printing Company, a home concern which has been identified with the progress of Muncie for more than thirty years. Since the days of the "Zetetic,” back in 1896, when the linotype was in its infancy; when every type was set by hand, and the presswork was done on a small job-printing press, every annual issued by this school has been the work of this same concern, whose growth has been parallel with that of Muncie High School and the city.
