PROPHECY OF CLASS OF '29
ONLY eleven years from that memorable day on which we, the seniors of 1929, had
forsaken high school for the greater things of life, I set out for New York for the
purpose of tracing the careers of some of my fellow-graduates. As I got out of the
train, I noticed a sign near the station which read, "Hutchings' Hot-Hound Hut.', Be-
ing somewhat hungry , I made my way to the place. In the midst of one of the dogs
I recognized the waitress as Irma Good. After a long chat, she told me that Harold
Hutchings was the owner of the place and that Blanche Bunner worked there also.
I asked her to direct me to a good hotel near the station, and she told me how to get to
the Krosse-Armes, New York's newest and classiest.
Scarcely had I gained entrance to the Krosse-Armes when two bell-hops, whom I rec-
ognized as Nick Mentis and Dale Roach, started fighting over my grips, but when they
became aware of my identity they both dropped them with a thud. Infuriated, the
manager came to stop the commotion, but when he neared me, he too stopped in his
tracks, for it was Murray McDavitt. After many greetings, Murray led me to the
desk where George Silence was the clerk. I was given a room on the ninety-eighth story
of the hotel and was taken up in the elevator by another member of our class, Wayne
Finley. After a short rest I had dinner with Murray in the main dining room, Where
Mary Bennington was in charge. Mary told me that Jennie Bell Bloom was a maid at
the same hotel. After dinner we went into the lobby and bought cigars from Doris Fell.
Murray insisted that I attend the theater with him that night. We were greeted at
the door by Bob Cochrun, doorman, whose lusty salutations were reiterated just inside
by the ticket-taker, Ruth Edwards. Ruth took us to the manager, Ray White, and
after we had talked for a long time with him, Edith Crist ushered us to our seats. Edith
told us that Alice Coats was also an usher and that Morton Pazol was the owner of
the chain of theaters of which this one was a member. The feature of the evening was
a talking picture with Dorothy Brown and Ivron Farmer, and a personal appearance of
Dorothy. After the performance, we went back stage for a chat with Dorothy, who
told us that besides her and Ivron, Gwendolyn Hamilton, Martha Perdieu, and Albert
Schram were engaged in acting, that Norman Harris was a famous producer, Chester
Newman, a director, Dale Poffenbarger, a photographer, Mary Louisa Garrison and Fred
McClellan, voice specialists, and Alex McGalliard, Leonard Potter, and Robert Sharp,
The next day Murray conducted me in his car on a sight-seeing tour about the city,
but before we had gone two miles we were arrested for speeding by Hubert Nay, a traffic
cop. Even after Hubert recognized us he made us come to the station. In the court-
room, Tom Hyatt was judging a divorce case. Ralph Livingston was the attorney for
the defense, Earl Barlowe was the sergeant, Mahlon McCammon, the bailiff, and John
McClellan, the jury foreman. After the trial we all had a long talk, and Murray
and I escaped our charge.
We next dropped into a barber shop where George Snyder was head barber, and john
Laughlin was his assistant. After a shave, a hair-cut, and a long talk, we were manicured
by Margaret Bechtel and Edith Johnson. They told us that Tierney's Tea Tabernacle,
which was just across the street, was run by Julia Tierney, and that she employed as
the waitresses Ruby Wray, Marcena Allison, Mary Huddleston, Virginia Rankin, and
Mary Ruth Winebrenner.
We left the barber shop and drove a short distance to the Osterhoff Building. ,We
found that Harold Osterhoff owned the square, which was built by Dale Mitchell, con-
tractor. In the building was an Automat Book Shop run by Helen Williams and Lois
Thornburg. After we had made ourselves known to the proprietors they cold us that
most of their best sellers came from the publishing house of French and Judy. Philip
and Bob, our old classmates, were the heads, and Sara Chalfant was the script reader.
Some of the books were Esther Conger's Tbc' Little White Cof, Marilouise Green's How
To Bc' Thriller! Though Tfyirfyg one by Catharine Phillips on How To Lir' Ifzfclligerzflyg
The Modern Muse of Poefry, an autobiography by Helene Hawk, and a Pulitzer prize
novel by Bob Waldorf.
On the next floor of the building, they told us Belva Huey ran an Automat Eat Shop,
and was assisted by Mildred Hudson. Bernice Drumm was the chef and Herbert Helms
was dishwasher. They told us also that Charles Fisher was manager of the North-
western Insurance Company in the same building, and that he employed David Curd,
Ray Lightfoot, and Wendell Pierce as salesmen, and Mary Ellen Elmore as stenographer.
Our next journey was to a dime store nearby. Andrew Sipe, the manager, was over-
joyed at seeing us, and made us known to his assistant, Gene Hopping, and his clerks,
Margaret Carmichael, Virginia Irwin, Mary Wallace, Charline Nibarger, Martha Coff-
man, and Lola Mae Martin, with whom we talked over old times.
We went for lunch to a cafeteria about a square away. Pauline Staley and Wilburta
Webster were the proprietors, Mary Stetter, the cashier, and Anna Lois Wallace and Vir-
ginia Tucker, the waitresses. They told us that Virginia Turner and Myrtle Yates were
running a beauty parlor, and that Veda Wliite assisted them.
Murray next took me to a large hospital where he said I could get a line on many
more of our graduates. We talked to Bob Zimmerman, the head surgeon, who told us
that Ralph Mixell and Ernest Elliot were internes, and that Vera Frances Rozelle, head
of nurses, had under her Dorothy Beath, Montrew Isenhart, Margaret Rector, and Dorothy
Shellenbarger. He told us also that Eloise Bird was in school at Brynn Mawr, on a schol-
arship, and that Jane Smelser was a dean there, and Margaret White, a teacher. He said
that Reginald May was the owner of a Bowery Cafe where Charles Brady was the bouncer
and Nadine Myers the pianist, and that Bob Full was a professional hobo.
We next visited ,the House of Bowman and Garrett, interior decorating establishment.
Arlene Bowman and Grace Garrett were the heads, Philora Schuster the buyer, and
Gladys McWhirt, Eleanor Sadler, and Clara A. King were on their staff.
At a bank in Harlem we found Willie Foulkes, president, Geneva Curd was the book-
keeper, Lois Taylor the cashier, and Alonzo McAllister the teller. They told us that
O'Dell Grant was dean of men and Gladys Sims dean of women at Tuskegee College,
and that Addie Shelton taught Latin there.
We then went to the editorial offices of Tbe New York Sun and talked to George
Gentry, editor. On his staff, he said, were Daphne DePoy, proof reader, Dorothy Downs,
editorialistg Mary Jane Easton, society reporter, Fred Harvey, sport writer, Lloyd Jarrell,
humorist, Fred Meeker, reporter, and John Pence, business manager. George told us
also that James Connelly owned a haberdasliery, Where Horace Martin and Don Duval
clerked, and Mary J. Hoover was cashier.
After dinner at the hotel, Murray and I went to the Zirgjiela' Follies. Charles Phillips
and Dorothy Alvey were starred, with Harry Hagerty and Vivien Livingston furnishing
After the performance we went to a night club where Eunice Brinson was hostess
and Virginia Garner, Lorraine Canaday, and Ora McCutcheon were dancers. In the
orchestra, which was led by Evan Combs, were Charles Mixell, trombonist, and Ray
The next day we had dinner at Murray's club, the Ritzbitz. Tom Hastings was
president and Howard Largent general secretary, while Ralph Carmichael was doorman
at the clubhouse.
That afternoon I took a train for home, satisfied that in only two days I had traced
the careers of many of our graduating class, and hopeful that in a few years I might
look up the rest. On the train I met another member of the class of '29, Bob Barnet,
who was travelling for a hair tonic company of which Fred Keesaer was president. He
told me that Emery Skinner was running a showboat on the Mississippi and that Mary
Catherine Garr and Charles Davis were in the troupe as dancer and animal trainer, re-
spectively. Bob told me also that Carolyn Brunson was a portrait painter's model in
It was ten years later that I had occasion to cross the "puddle" I was taken to
New York in a Zippy-Zeppelin piloted by Alford Heath, who told me that Donald
Reed was the owner of a chain of Zippy-Zeppelin transportation companies throughout
the United States. He said that Reed also employed Layton Doster and Paul Lowery
as pilots, and Nimrod Good and Richard Rankin as mechanics.
I arrived on the roof of the Krosse-Armes Sunday morning in time to go with Murray
to the Hyde Park Church. Francis Black was the pastor and Mary Bond a soloist with
the choir. After the sermon, Francis told us that Ralph Keesaer was the pastor of a
Methodist church in Boston.
That afternoon we went to a branch library near the Krosse-Armes, where Marian
Hutto, as head librarian, was assisted by Evelyn Tilford, Thelma Wilkinson, and Carrie
Chamness. Martha Louise Newport was in charge of the children's department. They
told us that Kate I-Iofer had become Governor of Wyomingg that Helen Newbold
was in a marathon dancing contest in California, and that Ruth Leeper and Nellie
Newlin were staging a sister act on Broadway.
Since I was not to sail until Monday evening, we went that morning to a point on
the Hudson not many miles from the city where William Long was conducting a
floating university. His professors were Harry Cartwright, professor of insectologyg
Ralph Erwin, sociologyg Lintner Clark, chemistryg Amy Morris, Englishg and Margaret
Gaskill, mathematics. They told us that Lynn Hazzard and Joseph Bock had gone into
the automobile manufacturing business with Frank Litchfield as draftsmang that James
Myers was playing professional footballg that Harold Cosby was an undcrtaker in
Boston, and that Charles Pieroni was a broker employing Charles Reece as clerk and
Veda Radabaugh as secretary.
That evening I sailed for Europe and was pleasantly surprised to find that the cap-
tain of the ship was Ray Dowling. He took me to Leslie Titus, the first mateg Forrest
Finney, the stewardg Wade Kerr, the purserg and Ruth Chapman and Clara King, stew-
ardesses, all of whom promised to help make my tripenjoyable.
The next morning I recognized several of a group of people on board as members of
my class. They were Beulah Graham, Marion Leakey, George Maple, and Ralph Satter-
lee, representing America in the Olympian games. Lillian Lundberg and Adrian White,
their trainers, told me that Beulah and Marion would be placed in the 100-yard dash,
that George starred in the high jump, and that Ralph represented swimming.
I next recognized a classily dressed person as Walter Trissell, who, when he realized
my identity, told me that he was on his way to Paris. His valet, Fred Allison, told me
that Walter was a national diplomat and that Mary Rector was his secretary.
A stately young woman with pince-nez next approached me and made herself known
as Marian Bilby. She told me that she was bound for Europe in search of material
for a new romantic novel.
Marian took me to a women whom I recognized as Lucille Devoe, but she was re-
introduced to me as the Countess of Deauville. She knew me at once and told me of
her titled marriage.
Bernard Freund, who was on his way to Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship, also recog-
nized me and started talking over high school days with Marian, Lucille, and me.
All four of us went to dinner together, and after dinner we went in search of other
classmates who, they told me, were on board. The first one we met was Elizabeth
Huffman, who said she was going abroad to purchase antique furniture for her em-
ployer, Esther Guthrie, who had become a connoisseur.
We next saw Irene Moody, who told us that she was going to Siam to be a missionary.
She told us that Sara Props was editor of Vogue, back in America, and that Leona Powers
was an illustrator for the same magazine.
Martha Ann Ogle was the next person we met. She told us that she was an evangelist
and was set on reforming the world. She told us also that Florence Reynard and
Lillian Schram were partners in a date agency at an American college and that Dorothy
Seiple was a government meteorologist.
Grover Voyles made himself known to us as the United States Ambassador to France,
and told us that Paul Wilhelm was director of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra
and that James Wallace owned a candy shop in New Orleans.
We met Ralph Pence also, who had a large tailoring establishment in Pittsburgh and
was on his way to Paris for advance styles. He told us that Bob Tolan was a famous
astronomer and that Philip Underwood was his right-hand man. He told us also that
Alton Wade and Glen Wolfe had formed the clothing establishment of Wade and Wolfe.
That night, all the members of the class of '29 aboard the ship made whoopee in the
It took us only a day to cross the ocean in the 1945 steamship. Immediately upon
landing, all bound for Paris were transported in airplanes. In a few hours we were in
Paris, and Grover, who had promised to conduct me about the ctiy, took me at once
to the capitol where I was presented by Regina Barbieux, the French Premiere's yes-man,
with a crown of laurels because my name, too, was Paris.
The Hrst place we went was called Nelsone Nifte Nooke, a dress shop whose pro-
prietresses were Rosalyn Nelson and Emma Williams. They made us known to their
mannequins, Ellen Nichols, Virginia Clouse, Bernice Curts, and LaVercia Fields, and
their designers, Virginia Pearson and Martha Bordner. They told us that Annabelle
Kabrick had married a millionaire and was Paris' best-dressed woman and that Harriet
Rouse was now a marquise and that she employed as governess for her children, Garnet
Not far from Nelsone Nifte Nooke was a sign which read: "Cranor et Masters, Print-
ers Extraordinairesf' We made for the shop and found it was a printing establishment
owned by Harry Cranor and Harold Masters and that their secretary was Ruth Elliot.
They told us that Marjorie Shroyer had become a nun, John Walburn had a dancing
studio in Greenwich Village, and that John Wallace manufactured cigarettes in an im-
mense factory near Paris.
After lunch, Grover took me to L,Ecole Pour Les Enfants, a kindergarten run by
Evelyn Ramsey. Evelyn employed as teachers Laura Wilkinson, Wilma Clark, Katha-
ryne Denny, and Mary Poffenbarger, while Keefer Crawley was her attendance officer.
Evelyn told us that Madalyn Parker was Paris' most famous magazine editor, that
Josephine Wyninger had written two universally accepted histories of France, and that
Marciel and Martha Worl were faking a Siamese Twin act in theaters all over Europe.
On a street corner not lmore than a block away we heard a French Salvation Army
hitting up a tune. Investigation showed us that Lowell Stephens was the head of the
group, Lorraine Cox and Mildred Gallimore were singers, and Julia Moore was the
tambourinist. They told us that Raymond Irelan, Donold Knecht, Luther Miller, and
Charles Platt had joined the Marines and were in China.
After dinner Grover and I went to L,OLbz'm dr' Russia. The leading parts were sung
by Louise Fisher and Bob Fee, while two girls from our class, Jama Freeland and
Dorothy Jane Pfeiffer, were in the ballet. The symphony orchestra was composed en-
tirely of women, with Martha Marsh at the piano and Frances Dean, the violinist.
The careers of all my classmates had been traced and I felt that the time I had
spent had been prohtableg so I bade them all goodbye and went in search of material
for another novel.

PROGRESS OF THE CLASS
TO go through four years, looking only ahead, little noting the inevit-
able changes Time brings about, then to be called upon suddenly to
look backward for a space, the view is scarcely recognizable. No other
small period of life packs so much development into it as does the high
Only four short years ago the class of '29 came into 324 as freshmen.
This position was then considered an inglorius one, and they worked hard
to become sophomores in the fall of 1926.
The next year an important step in their high school career was taken,
when they came into 306 under the sponsorship of Miss Jamieson. Don
Knecht was elected president. The class gave a circus dance before
Christmas, and, later, another dance at the Hotel Roberts, the ballroom
being decorated to represent a Japanese garden. Leonard Paris, versatile
member, composed a new school song. From all reports, the play,
You and I, was one of the best of junior performances.
Last autumn brought the freshmen of '25 into 206 as seniors, in charge
of Misses Siegwart and Jamieson. The first activity was the nomination
dinner at which the candidates gave their acceptance speeches. The re-
sults of the election were: Tom Hastings, president, John Pence, vice-
president, Vivien Livingston, secretary-treasurer.
A memorable event of this year was the dedication of the new gym-
nasium. The senior class was in charge of refreshments at the Marioil
game, and received hfty per cent of the returns from sales. The advisory
periods were made more interesting for seniors by monthly programs.
The class presented the extremely popular play, The Pafsy, and also suc-
ceeded in giving 206 a new picture.
It was in June that the class left Central, four years of progress behind
it, and remembering well its motto: "Failure to prepare is preparation

ORTY years ago the Ball Brothers Com-
pany 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 l'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 coun-
try, and probably in some not so civilized.
There is a great deal of truth in the saying,
"Ball Brothers made Muncie."

DISCARD FROM WEAKNESS - STRENGTHEN YOUR BUSINESS HAND
Time flies. Conditions change. I-Iigh-geared production machinery has chased
its slower, antiquated brother to the scrap heap.
Now, seemingly unproductive modern oflice furniture lifts its head to be recognized. Old
odices, assemblages of misfit pieces, are rapidly giving way to Standardized Fine Oflice Suites
which stimulate executives to more constructive thinking and planning.
Eine Orhce Suites are indicative of home comfort and freedom, harmonious in appearance
and feeling. Like well-groomed men they inspire confidence in ability and organization. They
promote Good XVill and have a definite share in the sales work.
A Fine business olhce-private or gentral office-is visible evidence of success. It estab-
lishes credit, builds prestige and a feeling of responsibility-factors necessary to the growth
of any organization. It encourages friendship, one of the foundations of any sale.
The company that employs scientific sales methods never overlooks the favorable mental
impressions to be created where no effort, only a little thoughtfulness, is necessary.
A Hne business oHiice is a sound business investment.
For executives whose present-day success has outgrown their earlier-day surroundings, the
Boyce Otiicc Engineering Service creates ensembles of gracious dignity--stately, rich and
correct in every detail. Such complete office ensembles are outward expressions of success-
symbols of achievement.

INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION
IN THE MUNCIE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
THE progress and growth of Industrial Arts instruction- given in the seventh, eighth,
and ninth grades, has been one of the outstanding features of the Muncie Schools.
This work had its beginning in 1901 in the Roosevelt School, under the leadership of the
instructor, Miss Belle Thomas. The value of this instruction was soon recognized, and
from this one small shop in a basement room the idea of "learning by doing" has grown
and spread into every junior high school in the cityi and also into the Central High
Paralleling the growth in the number of shops has been the growth and enrichment
of the courses themselves. For a number of years instruction was given only in wood-
working, but instruction is now given in a wide variety of subjects, including metal
work, printing, electricity, mechanical drawing, woodworking, pattern making, and
foundry. This diversification of work has been adopted in order to give all students
a broad experience and familiarity with various trades and manufacturing methods,
and also in order that all boys may leave our schools with a genuine appreciation of
labor and a general understanding of the conditions under which the various tradesmen
work. At the same time that students are becoming familiar with these various trades
they may also find through actual experience and participation that which they wish
to choose as their life work.
In a similar manner the Vocational courses offered in the Central High School are,
comparatively, only a recent development. The first course of this type was organized
in 1915. At this time a shop was equipped for the teaching of applied electricity. From
this there has grown a variety of courses all of which are planned to give trade instruc-
tion to boys who plan to enter these trades when they leave school. At the present time
courses are offered in applied electricity, drafting, machine shop, printing and

creation of the Hfth project of this kind. A good idea
One of the features in which
our school has been a pioneer
among all schools in the country
has been the building of a com-
plete modern home by the car-
pentry class each year. At first,
the class constructed a garage
each semester but, after several
successful efforts, the school of-
ficials and instructor decided to
attempt a house. Each spring
the carpentry class starts a new
houseg at the close of the frrst
semester this year they exhibited
at a public opening the fourth
"Boy-Built Home." The pres-
ent class is now engaged in the
of the magnitude of this under-
taking can be gained from the fact that the combined value of the houses built in the
last four years is estimated at forty-live thousand dollars.
The completion of the new Vocational and Physical Education Building marks another
step in the progress of vocational training in Muncie. The vocational shops will now be
housed in large, Well-lighted rooms designed specifically for this type of work.

HE name of our book, THE MAGICIAN, alludes not to
the Hindu charmer, the gypsy conjurer, or the American
slight-of-hand performer, but to the literary exemplification
of Muncie's magic growth overnight, and of her development
from those hectic gas boom days to the present time. We
have given our efforts to the completion of a pictorial history
which we hope will prove a lasting memoir of the city and
of Central High.
Throughout the book we have attempted to show a definite
relationship between the old and the new, as one may observe
on the division pages. The first of these, heading the section
called "The School," portrays the old and new high school
buildings. The division page for the administration section
shows the old and new court houses, symbolizing administra-
tion. Since the teachers are the guiding influences of the school
we have chosen for their section the old and new city halls
where the leaders of our city have their offices. Considering
libraries, like classes, to be organizations for the improvement
of the mind, we have placed at the beginning of the section
for classes, pictures of the old library, which was only a room
in the old city hall, and of the new library, which is one of
the city's most attractive buildings. The postoffices, the ideal
of organization, we present to you on the organization's di-
vision page. Pictures of the old and new gymnasiums head
the athletic section. The old gymnasium is located in the
west wing of our high school building. For features, pictures

week, and the other staff the following week. A pupil
is enrolled in the newswriting class as the result of a try-
outg after a semester's work in newswriting he is admitted
to the staff.
The paper comes out every Thursday, making a total
of thirty-two issues throughout the year. It is printed
as well as edited by the pupils of Central High School. It
is now a five-column paper, twelve by eighteen.
All school activities are supported by the paper. THE

The crossed torch borders which are found predominant
throughout the book, and the torch design on the cover are
decorative interpretations of the torches which dotted the
city's streets in the busy days of the boom. The fly leaves
show six stages in the development of Muncie from the Indian
village of Munseytown to a thriving city of about 52,000
people. In the first stage, the white man in his covered wagon
invades the village. In the second stage, after settlements
were made, transportation by railroad is shown, with a station
in a hollow tree trunk. In the scene at the time of the gas
boom the countryside is dotted with derricks and tanks. The
next phase, which deals with education, shows an old time
Hoosier school house. The modern city on the horseshoe
bend of White River is the scene of the fifth stage, while
the sixth scene is a visionary image of the future Muncie.
All of the art work in the book has been based on the general
theme of progress.
We wish to express our thanks for suggestions, for pictures,
and for the use of valuable books: to Miss Gertrude Schwab
of the Muncie Public Library, to Mr. Tate Wilson, a dealer
in antiques, to Mr. Frank Claypool, who was the president
of Muncie's first Commercial Club, and to the school board
of the city of Muncie. -

present. The Daubers have presented many beautiful pictures to the

FULFILLMENT of their motto, "Service to school and Community," has been the aim
of the Central High School Band. Besides the excellent programs which they have
contributed at games and school functions, a concert was given on April twelfth. The
band this year has been under the direction of J. C. Lucas. Last year they placed second
in the district and fourth in the state band contests. This is a good rating, considering
that fifteen points were deducted on account of inadequate instrumentation. This year,
most of this inadequacy has been made up. When Sousa,s band gave a concert in Muncie,
the high school group was directed in one selection by Lieutenant-Commander Sousa,
and was presented by him with a silver loving cup.

HE DRAMATIC CLUB started the season of 1928-29 with an in-
formal dance at the Dragonis Den. The first play of the year was
Honor Brigbf, which was given in the high school auditorium.
A Christmas play was given before the Kiwanis Club and at the
Christmas convocation. The club entertained The Wonzazfs Club, also,
with one of its productions. The third of May has been selected for the
spring performance, but the play itself had not been chosen when THE
MAGICIAN went to press.
FROM the first crocodile tears shed by Mrs. Harrington to the final
and characteristic embrace we seniors sat enrapt! The Patsy develops
the theory that the worm will turn. Dorothy Alvey played the Patsy
delightfully. Her sympathetic and affectionate father, Bill Harrington,
alias Harry Hagerty, romped through the part of the wise-cracking
travelling salesman just like himself, while his wife, Bernice Drumm,
sobbed refined retorts to his snappy repartee. Mrs. Harrington had a
decided preference for her eldest daughter, Grace. Sara Props personi-
Hed the hard-boiled young society girl perfectly. Grace was much in
love with Bill Caldwell, a boy above the Harringtons in social station,
but, judging from his devotion to sharp-tongued Grace, slightly below
them mentallyg let it, however, cast no slur on his name that he played
the part convincingly. Murray McDavitt was the handsome, shy hero,
Tony Anderson, and disarmingly pathetic in the misunderstandings his
love affair got him into. Eunice Brinson, Ivron Farmer, and Reginald May
portrayed interestingly three of those who pass, Sadie Buchanan, Francis
Patrick O'Flaherty, and Trip Busty the taxi driver, all of whom merely
served as provocations for more quarrels in this quarrelsome Harrington
"IN THE NEXT ROOM"
AS Lorna Webster, Gonda Platt played a charming part very satis-
factorily. In one of the most thrilling moments of the play Robert
Maxon, as Colonel Piggott, alias Gauchard, who threatened to kill God-
frey if Lorna revealed his identity, was outwitted.
Isabelle Connolly. as Mme. Charriere, played the French aristocrat
convincingly and appealingly. I-Ier attendant, the mysterious Julia, was
played by Geraldine McCaffrey. The death of Philip Vantine was con-
vincingly horrible as portrayed by Henry Barnes in one of the most dif-
hcult performances in the play. Providing comical relief, Allen Usher,
in the butler part, was a marked departure from the amateur. Tough
Grady, played by Tom Hayworth, smoked a convincing Stogy. David
XVhite revealed a hitherto unsuspected ability to register distraction. Earl
Milner as Simmons played the poker-faced detective necessary for ef-
ficiency. Credit for the biggest laugh of the evening goes to Robert
Yeo who stumbled over the corpse to the amusement and amazement
of the audience.
QNE of those comedies that is complicated by a white lie or two and
some circumstantial evidence, Honor Brigbf, by Meredith and Ken-
yon Nicholson was presented as the first Dramatic Club play on Novem-
As Honor Bright, Helen Williams interpreted the witty, pretty book-
agent competently while George Gentry, playing Richard Barrington,
acted like himself in a most satisfactory manner. Mary Stetter put over
the part of Tot Marvel, a chorus girl, most convincingly, showing real
artistry in her make-up and costumes. Leonard Paris as the hand-rubbing
minister brought forth many laughs, unintentional in the majority.
Robert Fee played a most outstanding part as Bishop Carton. He
surprised and delighted the audience with the maturity of his acting and
appearance. His wife, Grace Carton, was played charmingly by Jose-
phine Wininger. '
Bill Drumm, Tom Hastings, a loud speaker press agent, managed to
shock everybody and especially Mrs. Barrington, Dick's mother, inter,-
preted with much dignity and understanding by Martha Marsh.
James Connelly acted the Butler Watts, with a most convincing
"high-hat," while Ivron Farmer as the chauffer, Harry Hagerty as the
gardener, Jennie Bell Bloom as Annie, the maid, and Bernice Drumm, as
Maggie, the Irish cook, all succeeded in difficult character parts. Simpson
and Jones, particularly obnoxious policemen, sported the derby and the
stogie and provoked much laughter.

THE 1928 - 29 BASKETBALL SEASON
LTHOUGH Raymond Jolly's Bearcat netters
were defeated by the strong Washington quintet
in the first round of the state finals meet, and hence
did not retain Hoosier championship honors for 1929,
the team went through one of the most successful
seasons in Muncie High School's basketball career-
successful not only because of the large percentage
of games won and the third consecutive capture of
the North Central "Big Ten" Conference title, but
also for the wide-spread interest in the game itself,
for the good sportsmanship displayed by both players
and fans, and for the great increase in attendance,
made possible by the completion of the new field-
ln the opening game on November 23rd, played
against Hartford City in the Ball Gymnasium, the
Bearcats made .1 fair showing, defeating Hartford
City, which had begun its season several weeks be-
fore, by the score of 19-16. Washington, also with
several games to its credit, toppled the Purple and
W'hite in an overtime affair, 36-32, in the second
game of the season.
After taking the Huntington Vikings, to the tune
of a 29-23 score, the Bearcat squad made ready to
receive Coach Staggs' men on December 7th, in the
new fieldhouse, just completed. The howling In-
dians, thirsting to revenge their last-minute defeat
in the quarter-finals of last year's tournament, were
snatched by the scalp-lock and neatly disposed of,
55-24, in Muncie's first exhibition of real basketball.
The game was played before a capacity crowd of
8,000, gathered for the dedication of the long-needed
With Christmas drawing near, the jollymen en-
tered upon the first of four games to be played with-
in two weeks with the four most feared teams on the
schedule, and, playing true to form, outplayed and
outpointed Newcastlels Green and White warriors,
Muncie's hereditary foes, 22-13. Next, Glen Curtis'
netters from Martinsville came to Muncie, to go
down before the Purple and White, 29-21. The out-
come of the game was never in doubt.
Then, the Friday after Christmas, the Bedford
Stonecutters, the only team the Bearcats met through-
out the season which they were not favored to de-
feat, welcomed the squad to their fair city, and in a
forty-minute affair took the 'Cats to town by the
margin of six points, 43-37. This was the first
game in three years in which Muncie was outpointed
from the field.
Howling and tearing, the Jollymen tore into Ev-
erett Case's All-Indiana Hot Dogs from Frankfort,
now state champs, and, after a hectic affair in which
the score was eight times tied, emerged victorious,
40-39. Francis Reed sank a long one from the cen-
ter of the floor in the last minute of play to Win for
Confident, after this wonderful battle, the Bear-
cats came jauntily onto the hardwood to romp
through Morton of Richmond's Red Devils, who had,
to date, the inspiring record of two games won and
eight games lost. Some forty minutes later they
stared dazedly at the score-board, the reverberations
of the final gun ringing in their ears, to see pla-
cardcd in bold white characters: RfL'lJlII0lIlf, 353
There was no mercy shown the next night, for
the Alices from Vincennes, who last year upset the
'Cat in mid-season, were completely annihilated, with
the final score 32 to 18. Cliff Wells' Loganberries
were the next to tumble before the Purple and White.
After fighting the Logansport quintet on even terms
during the first half, the Bearcats forged through
to win 40-28. Kokomo fell before Muncie, 33-24,
in an uninteresting contest in which the Bearcats'
lead was never threatened. In the next four games
the 'Cats romped through Lebanon, Marion, Rochester,
and jefferson of Lafayette with the scores 33-27,
47-24, 34-20, and 23-18, respectively. Lebanon's
team was rangy, but could not stand up before the
Purple and White machine. Marion, which had the
week before crushed Martinsville, weakened by the
suspension of its star players, 39-11, did not offer the
opposition expected. The game with the Rochester
Zebras cinched Muncie's hold on North Central Con-
ference title. Although the Jollymen still had a clash
with Hoolter's Trojans from Newcastle, they led the
field, win or lose. The bucking of the Lafayette Bron-
chos was not violent enough to even jostle such ex-
perienced horsemen as the Bearcats.
With the tournament three weeks distant, the
Green and White quintet from the Rose City came
to Muncie with 2,000 fellow-townsmen to repay
Muncie for its former 22-13 defeat. But the Jolly-
men were inpregnable in defense, and invincible in
offense. Revealing state championship form they
whirled through the Hookermen to pile up a 41-25
In the return tilt with Marion, Muncie chalked up
its largest score of the season, 51 points, while the
Taub-coached crew ran up 35. South Side of Fort
Wayne, on their diminutive playing floor, almost gave
the 'Cats too much to chew in the last scheduled
game, holding them to a one-point margin, 36-35,
which was gained in the last 20 seconds of play by
a long one from Swift.
Then came the tournamenti
Beginning with a 68-23 victory over Harrison
Township, the Purple machine advanced through the
sectional, and on into the regional, to emerge regional
champion with a score of 30-19 over Middletown.
Only in the Eaton and Winchester games did the
Bearcats falter, being held in each case to a six-point
win. The scores were:

But the whistle blew, and the game was over and lost,
and the crowds went home.
The Bearltittens, composed of second-string men,
had a successful year also, meeting the strongest sec-
ondary teams in the state, and losing but two games.
GIRLS' basketball this year was ended March 28, at the
annual Play Day. Several games were played during
the season, but none of these were inter-scholastic games.
Bernice Drumm and Vivian Hughes, as co-heads of basket-
ball, had charge of the hardwood activities.
Several soccer games were played last fall at McCulloch
Park. However, practice was ended abruptly on account
of the bad weather and wet playing ground. Norma Con-
ger, head of soccer, directed this sport. ,
