OUR book for '37. The staff of the 1937
Magician is presenting for your approval an
ultra-modern, streamlined year book-your
book for '37.
Through the medium of our theme, the
camera, We have tried to portray both pictori-
ally and verbally our conception of these last
three years in Central.
By the use of "stills" and "action" shots We
have tried to capture all of the moods of the
students. They reflect sorrow, happiness, joy,
and, in some extreme cases, hilarity.
From the pages of our' book - the year book
for '37-fair-haired damsels and beau brummels
beam at us with coquettish glances which We
shall always remember.
To the seniors- from the staff, the faculty,
and the world - "Best Wishesf'

UNDEVELCDPED N EGATIVES

FOLLOWING the first dip in the
developing solution, the junior
negatives began to take on the form
of a campaign chapel. After a brief
time exposure, the elections were held,
and Lee Williamson and Betty Roeger
became the class oflicers. An execu-
tive committee consisting of Joe Led-
lie, Jim Carnes, and Jackie Hamilton
was appointed. Mrs. Helen Cross,
junior social sponsor, was the director
for these activities.
The class officers later sponsored a citizenship chapel. Bill Dearborn, Jean Schott,
Principal Paul Addison, and Mrs. Susan B. Nay spoke on the subject of good citizen-
ship. Some of the ideas put forth in this chapel have undoubtedly led Central High
School students to better school citizenship and to participation for their school.
In November, a cast of junior actors presented the play, "Guess Again." Miss
Jewel Standerford directed the exposure, which was a success from the entertainment
as well as from the financial point of view.
Several convocations were presented during the year. Dr. Hildebrand of DePauw
University spoke at one of these. The Business and Professional Women's Club pre-
sented Mr. Ralph Ross, who spoke to all juniors, and Mrs. Sharley DeMotte, who spoke
to the girls of the class. These convocations were followed by one in April and one
in May. The same organization entertained all junior honor girls at its civic dinner
on March 15.
The Junior-Senior Prom was held on May 7. Those on the committee were Tom
Larrabee, Nancy Sacksteder, Dorothy Spurgeon, Ann Kallmeyer, Jim Harrold, and
The class counselors were Miss Mary E. Wade, Miss Blanch E. Tuhey, Mrs. Nay,
and Mrs. Cross. ,

GN a September day last year, light
was first thrown on a new soph-
omore class which was to be exposed
to Central for the first time. Follow-
ing a few words of welcome and in-
structions, the first snap was taken,
and the new sophs were sent on their
way to the developing rooms.
One of the major activities for the
sophomores was the mixer at the Hrst
. . . .
"' of the year in the gymnasium. This
was well attended, and contests, dancing, and refreshments were enjoyed.
Other activities have included special convocations sponsored by civic clubs, a
mothers' tea, the Exchange Club dinner for honor pupils, and some business meetings.
The Sophomore Council is composed of the oiiicers of the class and the officers of
the various sophomore home rooms.

IN ORDER to provide for the students a voice in the school govern-
ment, the Student Council was formed. Here we have a candid
shot showing the group during one of their numerous business meetings.
The main object of the Student Council has been to promote citizenship
among students and teachers. One of the Council's greatest successes
was the Pan-American Day Chapel. On this day, a school pledge was
presented to the entire student body. The Student Council has been
doing fine work this year, and we sincerely hope for their future success.
Members of the council are Jim Carnes, Bob Fell, Jackie Hamilton,
Julia Ann Harris, Ruth Huffman, Jack Keppler, Philip Lacey, Joe Ledlie,
Fred Luzader, Betty Roeger, Howard Rice, Jeanette Rivers, Nancy Sack-
steder, Walter Shelton, Gene Smith, Delphine Williams, Lee Willinnmsoim,
and Norma Winters.
HE top exposure shows the Magician staff at work. The staff members adjusted
lights, timed the exposures, and prepared, the film in order to bring to life a
true picture of the work and play of Central High School.
At the left, below, the sales staff makes a check-up to test the' progress of the
sales campaign. The work of perfecting the picture editorially was rewarded by the
efforts of a competent crew of business agents. They made this different and unusual
book a success. The staff not only sold books to students, but they conducted a
campaign among merchants.
The view at the right, showing the editor and business manager in conference, sym-
bolizes the union and cooperation which has been necessary to make this book a suc-
cess. The editorial heads and business heads have carefully planned and executed the
best and most practical ideas submitted. Thanks must also go to Fred Bogart, instruc-
tor, for his help on the undergraduate pictures, and to the Advisory Board consisting
of Paul Addison, Miss Kathleen Meehan, Mrs. Gladys Townsend, and Miss Maude
Michael. Most of the group and athletic pictures were taken by Roger Lingeman, of the

Thirty issues are published each year and are distributed
throughout the United States. The paper is printed in the

fundamentals of editing a paper.

particularly interested in parliamentary procedure,
debating, mock elections, current events, and
other social science activities. Meetings are held
twice a month.
Membership in this club is limited! to fifty, and
one must have average scholarship to be approved
by the members. They assist the Delaware His-
torical Society and cooperate with all other school
organizations. To promote interest in a museum
is one of the club's aims.
This year for the second time the club will give
a social science award to a senior who they feel
best represents their aims and has the most possi-
bilities of future success in the field of social
LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
MEMBERS of Le Cercle Francais are
puzzling over the French names for
some of the articles on the table, in this
action photo. The purpose of the group is
to stimulate interest among pupils for con-
tinued work in French. Informal meetings
are held in which all pupils who have studied
French for at least one year participate.
One of the highlights of this year's activi-
ties was the banquet, at which a short
French play was given and popular French
songs were sung.
A great deal of valuable information is
gained through this club by listening to
outside speakers and learning about French
background and customs.

friendship which gives mutual beneiit,
scholarship, loyalty to school, and service.
During this school year the club has spon-
sored social hours after school, sale of pen-
cils, a mother-daughter banquet, and the
provision of Christmas and Thanksgiving

UQXIHERE were you the night of January sixteenth?" This was
the question directed at witnesses in the senior mystery drama,

HIGH SCHOOL BAND
COMMENDABLE improvement has been
made by the C. H. S. band during the
present year. New uniforms for the drum
major and color guard, a beautiful new
American flag--presented by the local
American Legion and Auxiliary, plus an
attractive C. H. S. banner-designed by
John VanMatre, Mildred Wfiley, and Miss
Hollenback, add to the already snappy ap-
pearance of this marching unit.
Flarshy maneuvers and peppy music con-
tribute zest to the real Bearcat spirit. The
band sets the pace for the cheering hosts
at games and pep sessions. The group will
also add beauty to the commencement ac-
tivities by a concert at that time.
Other special activities in which the band
participated were weekly Friday morning
broadcasts, a Sunrise Easter Concert, and
the Ball State Music Festival.

cists, who have spent much of their time
in individual research and in the prepara-
tion of interesting projects for presentation
before the club as a whole. They have pre-
sented programs on "Fluorescence" and "Gas
Engines" during the current year.
The members of the club, representing
the chemistry, physics, and botany depart-
ments, are devoting their interests to a field
which has made many contributions to our
modern life. The purpose of the club is
three-fold: to increase the interest, to af-
ford opportunity for individual research,

HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR
HE blindfold plays an important part in the initiation ceremonies of
the music club. The only requirement for membership in this organ-
ization is an interest in music.
The purpose of the club is to develop musical interest and to give
students the opportunity to appear before an appreciative audience. The
club sponsored the chapel concert of Giovanni Sperandeo. Splendid
programs and social events have marked this a banner year. The annual
banquet will be held in the spring.
HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR
AS Central's robed choir marches ahead, it bears high hopes for the
future. Much energy and unusual interest was displayed in obtain-
ing these purple vestments for the vocal group.
The choir carried out a most successful program with its participa-
tion in the Community Sing, Ball State Music Festival, Music Depart-
ment Program, and commencement activities.
The climax of this year's work consisted of an Easter cantata, 'The
Seven Last XVords of Christf, by Dubois. This inspiring program was
presented to the students and the public in two performances. Much
dignity is added to choir programs by the use of the Fred Kirselman
HESE happy members of the Friendship Club believe in "facing life
squarelyn and in working earnestly as they render service to the
school and community. Among the activities through which they aid
in sending representatives to Camp Sing-A-Long are the operation of a
check room, the sale of used books, and the sale of holly.
Group singing is one of the activities in which these girls join whole-
heartedly. Well-planned meetings, programs, and activities have been
arranged by the club cabinet. Several lively parties, a tea, a weiner
roast, and a ping-pong tourney have been given. The Friendship Club is
one to which every high school girl may belong. Members endeavor
in every way "to find and give the best."

Griilin Stephenson, art instructor, aided Dick Head in the designing and
constructing of the elaborate scenery for this production.
Membership is acquired through a successful try-out giving evidence
of the following qualifications: voice, stage presence, dramatic ability,
and school citizenship.

Assistant coach to Mr. Fisher and also to Mr.
jolly in basketball is VICTOR DAUER, Qinset,
leftl, a product of I. U. Although hc has been
at Central only one year, "Vic," as all the boys
call him, has already carved his niche in our
hall of fame. His ready smile and youthful un-
derstanding have been invaluable assets to our
teams. Everyone looks forward to many more
years with "Vic"
WALTER FISHER, Qinset, rightj, head foot-
ball, track :md wrestling coach, has enjoyed
good seasons consistently. He has thc ability
to take a mediocre group of boys and weld them
into a winning machine. This ability is duc to
the love and admiration that every Bearcat has
for Mr. Fisher. While fighting for his beloved
school, each athlete is also fighting for the
coach, who has managed to instil in him the
true Bearcat spirit.
HE scrappy little Bearcat football team of 1936 had a great season, ranking among
the very top notchers in the state. The Bearcats started off rather slowly by
taking the tough Noblesville Millers, 6 to 0, on a punt blocked by Captain Dick Jones
and recovered in the end zone. The boys then began to pick up steam by trampling
both the Newcastle Trojans and the Anderson Indians, 13 to 0. Keeping up the
same pace, the Bearcats took the speedy, golden clad Wildcats from Kokomo over
the rocky road, 20 to 0. Then the big green wave from Tech of Indianapolis moved
into Muncie and took a real heartbreaker from the Bearcats on a safety, during a pour-
ing rain, 8 to 7. Spurred by their defeat at the hands of a lucky team, the Purple
and White avalanche gathered force and rolled over the Richmond Red Devils, 21 to
0. In the game upon which hinged the North Central Conference championship, the
Bearcats took it on the chin from an inspired Marion team on the Marion field, 12 to
7. Aroused by their defeat at the hands of the Giants, the 'Cats smothered a highly-
rated Wabash eleven to the merry tune of 32 to 6 on the Apaches' home field. Our
bruising Bearcats then wound up a highly successful season by hanging one on the
Elwood Panthers, 20 to 6, at the annual homecoming game.

on SCVCl'Ill 0CCilSl0l1S.
DAVE JONES, the Bearcats' best defense lineman, was rated
anion the top notch guards in the state last year. The oppos-
ing offensive thrusts seldom gained over his position, and he was
instrumental in breaking up many plays through other parts of
' ' ' l l
the line. Offensively, weak-side plays were always partncu ary
effective with Dave as the spearhead.

BLAINE BURRES, an unusual cutbaclt artist and one of the

JOE BRENNAN one f h
, o t e team's most valuable assets, was
one of the hardest blocking and tackl' l'
. . ing memen on the team.
Combined with his brilliant playing ability is a splendid per-
sonality which gained for him the respect and friendship of everv
member of the team joe will he
. remembered as one of the
finest players ever to wear the Bearcat colors.
PAUL TEAL, whose rugged physique enabled him to stand
up under the toughest competition, played a good game at tackle
for the Bearcats. Although new to the team in his junior year,
he soon caught the splendid fighting spirit of the Bearcats and
earned a position on the varsity in his senior year.

during the season. Fisher will I-ind '

JOHN HALL, one of the toughest wingmen to iight for the
Cream and Purple in recent years, was not only a sure pass re-
ceiver and splendid blocker, but also a constant threat to the
enemy oiensive. It is no wonder that a good coach's hair becomes
prematurely gray trving to fill '
I vacancies left by the graduation
of such players as Johnny.
HERB HOLADAY, hard hitting reserve fullback whose smash-
ing line plunges and stout-hearted defensive plays have mad: him
an important and extremely desirable cog in the Bearcat ma-
chine, still has another year with the Cream and Purple. You'll
see him ripping many an opposing line to shreds next season.
AARON NVILLIAMS, all around end and yet only a sopho-
more, has already played his second year with the Bearcats. A
splendid defensive game and bang-up blocking made him a deadly
threat to the opposing teams throughout the year.
JIM CARNES, a fine pass receiver and an aggressive defensive
wingman still has another year with the Bearcats. Next fall he
should be one of the toughest problems to confront the opposing
teams. He is one of the splendid trio of ends who turned in such
splendid performances last fall.
CECIL GOENS is a flashy halfback whose thrilling speed and
running ability made him a real threat to the opponents' defensive
wall. Although a member of the varsity team, he still has two
years to go and should be an extremely valuable wearer of the
Purple and White in the future.
GENE SUTTON, speedy running guard and stalwart defensive
man, with still another year to play for the Cream and Purple,
should be the linesman to keep an eye on next fall. His ability to
mow down the defensive backs was instrumental in keeping the
Bearcat offensive machine clicking smoothly throughout most of
BOB FELL, lighting Bearcat pilot, directed play cleverly
from his position at guard and was in many ways responsible
for the splendid basketball of the sectional and regional tourna-
ments. Bob's pugilistic Bearcat spirit kept the boys scrapping
despite the tough breaks encountered throughout the season.
CHARLES BROVIN, dependable Bearcat reserve, is an ex-
cellent prospect for next year's team. Wlhenever called upon
by Coach jolly, "Sonny" earnestly and faithfully did his part.
JIM CARNES, reliable junior forward, because of a keen
basket eye and splendid defensive ability, was and will be
a very annoying ily in any team's soup. His splendid attitude
made him respected and popular not only among his team-
mates, who chose him as co-captain for the '37-'38 season,
but also among the opponents and fans.
BILL CAMPBELL, diminutive junior guard, who makes up
for his lack of altitude with amazing speed, played commend-
ably whenever an opportunity presented itself. He'll bear
watching next year, not only by the fans, but by the op-
ponents as well.
JACK COMER, diminutive Hoorguard, is the only sopho-
more on the Muncie team. His determination, coolness under
fire, and love of basketball should earn him a niche in Cen-
tral's Hall of Fame during the next two years.
BILL BLAIR, Bearcat pivot ace, has held down the center
position to a remarkable advantage. With his long arms, Bill
not only drew the toughest guarding assignments, but also
found time to become one of the highest scorers on the Mun-
JOHN FISHER, after a season with the Bearcats, can be
expected to come through in great style next year. Through
his determination to win he has worked his way from second-
team substitute to an important berth on the varsity.
BILL FLAHERTY has been a sturdy and dependable Bearcat
reserve. After one year with the varsity he has a good chalice
of becoming a first-string player next year.
JOHN HAI.L'S three-year record in a Bearcat uniform will
long be remembered by Muncie fans. His lighting spirit and
great offensive play will be missed greatly, but his fine example
will be an inspiration to all future Bearcat teams.
MERLE LONGFELLOWHS three years of basketball for Cen-
tral will cease with graduation, but his fighting spirit will go
on. A reckless ball hawk with an accurate shooting eye, Merle
was one of the most valuable utility men on the team.
BILL MYERS, co-captain for '57-'38, a bang-up, all-around
floor guard, played a splendid defensive game throughout the
season and also did his share of the offensive work. He will
still be tossing baskets for the Cream and Purple next year
and will do plenty toward keeping the opponents' tallies to
HENRY YOUNG, a Bearcat for two seasons, has still an-
other year ahead of him. His great height and playing ability
should make him an important member of next year's team.

COACH RAYMOND "PETE" JOLLY
This year marked the close of ten successful years of basketball coach-

Coach Jolly received his education at Purdue University, where he
starred in football and basketball. Immediately after graduation he took
over his first and only coaching job as head mentor of the Central High
Durin his ears in Muncie he has reduced two state cham ions.

JAMES "REU, MYERS '
James "Red" Myers frightj is a newcomer to Central's coaching staff
this year. He was responsible for about twenty boys who constituted
the third team, known as the "C" team. Coach Myers, a Muncie boy,
graduated from Central in 1929 and in 1934 completed a four-year
course at Ball State, where he starred in football and baseball. He
turned in a most successful season, winning ten out of twelve games
and skillfully training many prospective Bearcats.

HE 1937 Bearcat wrestling team opened the season with a close vic-
tory over Peru in an exciting match. After a short rest the Purple
and White grapplers engaged the strong Southport Cardinals in a dual
meet. Victories by Southport in the heavier divisions enabled them to
take the Bearcats' measure by the small margin of two points. Clark
of Hammond was the next visitor to Muncie but was unkindly received
and returned home on the short end of a 25-11 score.
In a return match at Southport the Muncie matmen demonstrated
their fine improvement by defeating the Cardinals easily. In the last
regularly scheduled meet Central again defeated Peru, this time by a

Hal Warren, Central's tennis coach, had practically all of last year's
team, which included Bob johnson, Bill O'Neill, George Brickley, George
Novick, Bob Stanley, Joe Lake, and Melven Gilpen, from these boys he
built his '37 squad. Honor letters were given this year to boys who
have participated in tennis for two or more years and have won more
than half of their matches.
Matches were held this season with Huntington, Dunkirk, Mishawaka,
Marion, Newcastle, Richmond, Decatur, Hartford City, Elwood, Ander-
son, Kokomo, Tech of Indianapolis, and Burris. The boys also com-
peted in the second annual invitational doubles tourney which includes
The golf team, coached by Pete Jolly, opened the season against Ander-
son on April 20 at Anderson. The team included Jim Harrold, Bill
Horton, Bill Wade, and G. Stout. The rest of the schedule was as
follows: April 28, Anderson, here, May 16, invitational Big Ten tourney
at Marion, May 19, Newcastle, there, May 29, State Tournament at In-
dianapolis, and May 31, Marion, here.
Since six players remained from last year's teams, the proverbial silver
lining shone strongly through the dark clouds for Pete Jolly's '37
The starting lineups were chosen from the following players: Bill Dunn,
pitcher, Huffman, third base, Bill Campbell, shortstop, Studebaker, second
base, John Fisher, first base, Jack Keppler, Joe Brennan, Bob Johnson,
Merle Longfellow, and Francis Carpenter, outfielders, Tomey and Carter,
Games were played with Portland, Gas City, Winchester, Anderson,
Yorktown, Richmond, and Tech of Indianapolis.
HE intramural athletics program, which has been in operation at
Central since 1931, has steadily increased in scope until, at the pres-
ent time, over three hundred boys participate in the activities offered.
Its purpose is to give the boys who may not be able to make the grade in
varsity competition an opportunity to participate in their favorite sports.
The individual award offered to each winner is a ribbon and one unit
toward the intramural medals-three units entitling the individual to
a bronze medal, six to a silver medal, and nine to a gold medal. Fred
Taylor is the only Centralite who has won both the silver medal and
a gold one.
The activities and their winners during the school year of 1936-37
are as follows: touch football, won by a team composed of Harold Col-
lins, Bill Campbell, Richard Tesch, Richard Norman, Mark Ross, Joe
Hickey, Fred Taylor, Fred Collins, Joe Johnson, Gene Collins, Charles
Oliver, and Don Ertleg basketball, won by Harold Collins, Arnold Stokes,
Taylor Rife, Gene Collins, Fred Taylor, joe johnson, and Fred Collins:
and the ping-pong tournament, won by Jimmie Duffy. The remaining
events of the school year were volley ball, soft ball, and horseshoes.

A CANDID camera managed by Miss Katherine King has caught members of the
Girls' Athletic Association in eleven exposures during the year's activities.
The Erst picture is underdeveloped, as only a small group turned out for volleyball
in October. Volleyring was on the stage for the first November snapshot, with a
get-acquainted party for girls interested in athletics under the spotlights in a third print.
Our enthusiastic basketball players appeared in an action snap taken just before
Christmas vacation. Then there is the picture of a tense moment in the Burris-Central
volleyball game from which Central emerged the victor.
When sports were revived in January, a new one, ping-pong, made a dramatic en-
trance. Rosemary Walters got into the picture as singles champ.
Basketball practice again flared up in March. In our album of photos we find a
snap of the Wabash-Central fray, which ended 29-15, Wabash. Here we also see a

How right was that immortal sage-
He who said, "All the world's a stage."
For no matter what our lot may bring,
No matter if we're child or king,
We must act when fate pulls the string.
As seniors we have played our parts,
And now we leave with saddened hearts.
Our time has coineg we end the role
We've learned toilove with all our soulg
Sad, yet glad we've reached our goal.
We leave our little school-life drama
To join Life's great panorama.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
THE lens of our candid camera was first focused
for the moving picture of the class of '37 on
January 29, 1934, when more than one hundred
bewildered sophomores emerged from behind the pro-
tecting curtains of the McKinley, Blaine, and Wilson
Junior High School lots to enter the Central sound
stage. The actual shooting of the sophomore reel
began with the orientation of sophomores in room
204 under the careful direction of Miss Maude
Michael, who has also directed the cast during the
junior and senior reels. Since the first half of the
sophomore reel proved successful, Exchange Club
members entertained the star performers at 'uncheon
at the Hotel Roberts. On September 10 of the same
year, more sophomores arrived on the Central High
School lot, eager to continue with the picture. One
of the main characters arriving in September was
Principal Paul Addison, who has since been considered
a star in the cast of '37. During this scene, ,joe Lake
posed as sophomore chairman, and acts which figured
brilliantly toward its success were two lively com-
edies, "Who Says Can't" and "Weiners on Wedimes-
day," in which jim Turner took a leading role,
and the party given by the Honor Society for honor
The first important picture brought before the
lens during the shooting of the second reel was the
choosing of junior ofiicers. Under the able leader-
ship of Gene Smith and Norma Nvinters the cast
functioned perfectly, and our picture series was one
step nearer completion. Some of the important
snaps on this reel showed the election of several
members of the cast to Central's Honor Society and
several interesting chapels sponsored by the Rotary
Club. The scene of the junior stage production,
"A Million Dollar joke," starred Ruth Huffman and
Kermit Hummell with an excellent supporting cast.
The closing scene of the junior reel was the gala
junior-senior prom. '
Page N ine! y-.tix
With the candid camera running perfectly, the
lens was set for the shoot'ng of the final reel of
the senior scene. The first prominent affair was the
senior campaign supper, the results of which showed
jack Keppler as presidentg Ruth Huffman, secretary,
and Phil Lacey, treasurer. Follow'ng this scene came
the announcement that several members of the cast
had been elected to membership in the Central High
School Honor Society. Interesting informal pictures
on this reel were the mother-daughter banquet spon-
sored by the Girls' Service Club and the father-son
banquet sponsored by the Hi-Y Club. -.
During spring vacation a number of the cast
members temporarily deserted the Central High
School lot to engage in the shooting of some scenes
En the vicinity of Wfashington, D. C., our nation's
capital. Upon their return, the who'e cast eagerly
looked forward to the shooting of the spring activ-
ities, the first of which was the senior play, shrouded
with mystery, and under the direction of Miss jewel
Standerford. Other stellar activities pictured were
the mothers' tea, the junior-senior prom, senior dance,
class day, with special convocation, and the annual
inspiring baccalaureate service. The last social func-
tions of the cast were the senior banquet and picnic,
after which the set was in readiness for the com-
mencement service, which was unique in that no
outside speaker was present, but that outstanding cast
members were in charge of the program. This scene
made an impressive picture as two hundred eighty-
one senior cast members solemnly promenaded down
the long ais'e at the fieldhouse in gray caps and
Now our three reels have been developed, and the
finished picture is ready to be shown to the world.
The picture has been made-it cannot be changed.
We are the net results of all our yesterdays.
