Sure it's my favorite spot and I'm tops as a guide because, you see, I'm that unusual fellow, B the Bearcat. Oke? Then let's meet the Jills and Jacksons who throng the halls, classrooms and the front steps at Central. 4 . Y. ' , Q ,. 1, ,. .r . limi. js ,....

At Central, the top drawer is definitely reserved for those super Quiz Kids, the seniors, who have been answering questions, as well as asking them, for three years. In fact, many of them are so good that they've shortened that three-year period to two-and-a-half and even two, by carrying extra work and attending summer school, And in addition to their school work, I'm proud to relate that more than three-fourths of them have held part-time jobs after school and on Saturdays. How's that for a record? What's more . . . some of them are already in uniform, too, as you will see. These J's and J's also know how to have a good time, believe me. The lighter side of school life was off to a swell start with the allwschool dance held at the Field House on Friday, October 6, after the Tech game. The evening definitely wasn't spoiled by the 33-O Cat victory. These versatile seniors later demonstrated their skating abilities at a party held Wednesday, December 6, at Gibsons Of course, during the evening some of them showed they could skate on and off their feet. You could guess that this outnt wouldn't be satisfied with less than the best, so you won't be surprised to know that a class play was given for the Hrst time since 1942. Completely disregarding the calendar, the seniors gave "June Mad" in January. And a fine start it was for Central's theatricals, 8 The 1945 Magician if 'Ir 'Ir 'A' ir 'Ir uk ir . In a more serious mood, the Eorty-fivers joined with Muncie civic clubs in sponsoring the very successful Senior Career Conference, attended also by seniors from Burris and Delaware County schools, On April 17, they were again hosts to their fellow seniors at the annual College Conference Day. School days came to their usual welcome and yet-lamented close with the pre-Commencement activities-Mothers' Tea, Class Day, Class Banquet, Baccalaureate, and Commencement. Working always with the class officers and council have been the senior sponsors headed by Miss Blanch Tuhey, whose photo appears on page 48. When Miss Tuhey became ill during the second semester this year, Miss Eleanor Jean Bly became acting class sponsor. Others who have worked with the class include Miss Katherine King, social sponsor, and Robert Colvin, Hnancial sponsor. Teachers who have served as counselors for this class since the sophomore year include the sponsors and Miss Mary E, Wade, Miss Ella Hollenback, Miss Margaret Ryan, Miss Charline Jamieson, Mrs. Helen Reed Pennington, Dr. W. L. Howard, Miss Dorothy Kreiger, and Harold V. Anderson, CYou'll find them at their best behavior on page 49.j You betcha . . . I purr with pride when l think of the Class of l945.

Although they've had to take second place this year, they'll make up for it later. Peppy and definitely in the groove, the juniors have had their share of school activities planned by class oflicers, council members, and sponsors. An all-school dance on November 2 was their Hrst contribution to Central's social side, That same month the class assembled to hear Miss Inga Blumenthal, a German-Jewish refugee, speak about life in Nazi Germany. A 'Bubbles Concerto," presented on March 19 in cooperation with the seniors, was a .bubbling success Couchlj. "Brother Goose," the class gift to the hilar- ity of Central, played to appreciative audiences in March. Dressed in their slickest, juniors played host to the seniors on May 26 at the annual Prom held at the Masonic Temple. Digni- ned and serious as belitted the occasions, juniors ushered at Baccalaureate and Commencement. Class sponsors include Mrs. Helen Pennington, chairman: Miss Ella Hollenback, social sponsor: Paul Carmichael, financial. 36 The 194 5 Magician JUNIORS Row l-Paul Abrams, Dale E.

The youngest Centralites are the sophomores, but they aren't too worried about that because they know they'll be seniors bye and bye. As the newcomers to the school, they had to learn the customs of the school-f'rinstance, some of them thought that each absence slip cost five cents, and others tried to Hnd the elevator, However, they caught on . . , but fast! Early in the fall, they elected their representatives to the class council. Oilicers were then named by the newly-elected members. At the meetings held the second period on Tuesdays, class plans were made, All officers, council members, chairmen of standing committees, and sponsors were presented to the class at the first sophomore meeting. Mr. Shaffer also discussed the Central customs and traditions. Later Mr. Zetterberg gave a demonstration of plastics and other materials at a sophomore assembly. Sophs also held skating parties, Ralph E. Conelley is chairman of sponsors, and Mrs. Jessie Hoffman and Martin J. Han- sen assist him as social and business advisors, respectively. 4.0 The 1945 Magz'c1'an SOPHOMORES Row l-William Abercrombie, Jim Acton, Bob Adams, Mary Martha Allred.

Shaffer, Principal Under the leadership of friendly Mr. Shaffer, Central High has worked this year to do its part in a War-World. Topping all else was the establishment of the R.O.T.C. unit. ln the Words of the army the general object of the program is 'iprimarily to lay the foundation of intelligent citizenship by inculcating in the student habits of precision, orderliness, courtesy, correctness of posture and de- portment, leadership, and respect for, and loyalty to constituted authority: and to give the student basic military training Which Will be of benefit to him and of value to the military service if and when he becomes a member thereof." More than two hundred boys signed for the Work, which was under the direction of Harry Kemmer, professor of military science and tactics. A group of civic leaders became members of the advisory committee, while the Junior Chamber of Commerce assumed active sponsorship. At the beginning of the second semester, C. J. Quinlan, a veteran of World War II, took over the work when Mr. Kemmer asked to be relieved.

He became ill in October, but his condition was not serious until a week before his death. I-Ie was a graduate of Central High in 1918 and com- pleted work on his A.B. degree at Ball State in 1923. He was a teacher in the Muncie Schools for twenty-five years, beginning in 1920 as a teacher of manual arts at Garfield. The next year he came to Central and remained here until the Trade School was opened. Mr. Wellinger was noted for the success he achieved in providing actual construction work for the boys in his classes. For a number of years his classes built a house each year, Garages were also constructed, and when the Trade School was planned, much of the work of re- conditioning and rebuilding was done by his students. Last summer he supervised the build- ing of the new Blaine School Cafeteria and at the time of his death he was in charge of work on the new cafeteria at the Trade School. A ine teacher has left us, but there remain the accomplishments of the boys whom he taught to despise shoddy work, a worthy memo- rial for a life of service. Clyde Wellinger Death also came this year to a figure long familiar to Centralites, when Arthur Williams, custodian, was stricken Thursday morning, November 30, 1944, as he was doing his morning work, preparatory to the beginning of the school day. He died as he would have wished, on the job, for he was a conscientious worker, as well as a friendly man with a cheery word for both students and faculty. Arthur Williams The 1945 Magician 57 The versatility of Centralites is shown by the activities presented in this section. See why I proudly twirl my whiskers when I talk about them! Or maybe you'd rather throw out your chest as do the R.O.T.C, boys across the way. Anyway, all of them have a lot of fun as they work and play at Central. V335 5559521 A , 'Y 7 if ' we-L.

Look, now they're acting, and I don't mean the kind seen when a student who forgot to prepare his lesson tries unsuccessfully to convince his teacher that he has. I mean the kind of acting done behind footlights and greasepaint. For the first time at Central, the usual class play was taken over by a dramatics class under the direction of Miss Henryetta Brandt. Seniors enrolled for the class during the fall semester. By the end of the term they had presented two one-act plays, 'ADarkness" and "The Birds' Christmas Carol," as well as the three-act "June Mad." Members of the class were in charge of make-up, costumes, sets, and lighting, too.

This Hrst-period class gave them a fine start for the day. They, too, prepared the annual class play for presentation, and a fine job they did of "Brother Goose," which twice oH'ered evenings of pure escape. They also presented several one-act plays and made a number of appearances before school and community meetings. They liked the work so much that if there had been time, they probably would have Wanted to join a USO unit or try for some amateur-night contest.

Champions all of them as far as I'm concerned, but then l'm prejudiced. Football, basketball, Wrestling, track, base- ball, golf, intramurals-the Bearcats do 'gem all. And what's more, they do 'em well. P lv-Q4 l . l .VW-'K' arm ',.b h w .. 4 ,,,V ky N. Li Q, N 4-fl V' av P a,,. Left Halfback Field House Walter E. Fisher In all the years l've watched Bearcat warriors take the field, I've seen some of the best since the coaching job was taken over by that sterling fellow, Walt Fisher. Although he is known as the gloomiest coach in the business, he has managed . . . just barely managed . . . to annex the North Central Conference championship for the past Hve years. Al- though the Cats have been conference members for thirteen years, their luck wasn't so good the rest of the time . . . they had to share the title three years. But Mr. Fisher just shakes his head and mutters that the boys will have to do better or things will be pretty dismal. tiff Ettore Antonini The tall man with the infectious grin is Coach Antonini, the Purple and White wrestling mentor. ln his spare time he also acts as assistant football coach and track coach. I suppose you could call him a 'Atriple threat" man, couldn't you? Under the direction of this former All-American football player, Central fellows are going places in the field of sports. The 1945 Magician Arthur E. Beckner Well, he and his boys did it this year! For the nrst time since 1938, the basketball quintet annexed the sectional title. And what's more, those fellows weren't stopped until the final game of the semi- Hnals. Not bad for a second year at Central! But, of cours-e, since Coach Beckner used to wear the Purple and White himself as a star player on the Bearcat five, it's no more than I expected of one of my namesakes. I tell you, these Bearcat fellows of mine certainly make the grade. Who Wouldn't, now that I think about it, with me as an inspiration? There I go. acting too modest again. 'A"k'ki' Alvy Havens The newcomer to the coaching staff is this World War II veteran, who came to Central upon the com- pletion of his naval chores. I-Ie has taken over the intramural league, which completed one of its most successful seasons this year. I-Ie also supervises the large gymnasium during the noon hour and aids with other athletic problems around Central.

This year's Bearcat powerhouse took not only the North Central Conference title for the fifth straight year, but laid claim to the myth- ical state championship for the second time in the school's history. They did it by taking all nine games on the schedule, piling up the amazing total of 392 points to the 57 scored by the six teams able to cross their goal-line. Their average point total was 43.5 to their oppo- nents' 6.3 per game. Are you surprised to know that I had to buy myself several new hats during the season? Did I say the Cats laid claim to the state title? Well, Jim Mitchell, AP sportswriter, gave it to them at the end of the season. In his words, 'AThe Bearcats, in the humble opinion of this scribe, proved themselves deserving of the crown by the manner in which they disposed of their nine opponents . . . So-it's hail to Central of Muncie, holders of the mythical 1944 Indiana prep grid championship because the Bearcats had no ties and no narrow squeaksf' Not only did the team reap honors, but acclaim came to individual members of the team. Jackie Adams, the will-o-the-wisp left halfback, was picked for that berth on Heze Clark's 1944 all-state high school team. Fisher also places him with Central's greats, because he was given that position by Fisher and the faculty committee which chose Central's All- Honor Team, 1927-1944. His speed, broken-Held running, passing, and kicking made him a "four-threat" man. Two of the others who rate top honors, as well as honorable mention on Central's all- time team, are now doing their stuff for Uncle Sam's Navy. Captain Ed Bird and Harold Sulkey are two of the boys who have exchanged football togs for Navy blues. Bird, center on the team, was the backbone of the Cat defense. He played a head's-up ball game and was always in there when needed. Sulkey, fullback, fulfilled all expectations by turning in a superlative job. His sheer power and ability to drive made him one of the outstanding line- plungers in high school football. He and Adams scored most of the Bearcat touchdowns. Capt. Ed Bird Jack Adams Harold Sulkey Center Left Halfback Fullback The 1945 Magician 83 Bob Kuhns Bill Fisher Gene Dance A. J. Hall Don Wood Roy Bradford 84 L The backfield was completed by Gene Dance, quarterback, and A. J. Hall, right half. Both men did excellent blocking for Adams and Sulkey, ball carriers most of the time. Dance sparked the team with his all-round ability and quick thinking. That versatile fellow, Senior President Hall, demonstrated his ability to do many things well by playing a 'line game throughout the season. The backiield was always a joy to watch since perfect block- ing cleared the way for the line plunges. Precision and smoothness characterized the work of these men. H However, don't think that the team had only five stars. That Bearcat line, while not signaled out for state attention, was nevertheless a powerful factor at all times. One of the linesmen was another member of Central's all-time team. Of Bob Kuhns, left end, Coach Fisher says that he is "the best pass-receiving end I ever had." Throughout the season Kuhns was always there to take them right out of the air. CPoet, am IU At the opposite end of the line Gerald Marsh and Charles Spence al- ternated at right end. Both were good blockers and football stalwarts. Guard positions were held down by Roy Bradford and Don Wood. The former's two-hundred-pound bulk formed a big obstacle for anybody with ideas about get- ting through the left side. Wood also gave an equally good account of himself. The line was completed by Elwood Wege- sin and Bill Fisher, tackles. Both these scrappy Cats carried on the Bearcat tradi- tion. The latter is now in service, by the way. The 1945 Magician E While the regular starting line-up changed only occasionally because of in- juries or other causes. the Bearcats who substituted for the first-stringers had plenty of ability. They played an excellent brand of ball whenever given the opportunity, as in the Elwood game. Among the senior reserves who have doffed the Purple uni- forms for the last time are Otis Edwards, Cieorge Yingst, and Max Cox. Cox, who is now in service, decided to complete his work this year when it was found possible for him to do so. He had been counted as a starter for next year's squad. This year's team was truly an unbeat- able combination. The fellows formed a huge, well-trained aggregation that didn't know what it meant to give up. Each man contributed his own brand of football magic at the same time that he also knew his work as a cog in a machine full of power and drive. This ability to play as a unit and yet to use special abilities when the occasion called for them is another rea- son why the 1944 team scored such a suc- cess, And many people found their work a joy to watch because record crowds at- tended all home games. Against better-than-average teams, the Cats downed such outfits as Bloomington. New Castle, Kokomo, Central of Port Wayne, and Tech of Indianapolis by a 38.3 margin of victory. The narrowest margin was the New Castle score of 27 to 7. Certainly the season was any coach's dream. As for me, I purr proudly when I think of all those fellows who made up PIU the team that gave me the best season in Otis Edwards George Yingst man ears .

This was the Fifer-Barker-Kuhns-Douthitt-Irwin combination, ive evenly-matched fellows who played a whale of a game when they really started clicking. Each of them starred during the season but they shone best as a team, Fifer was high-point man by the close of the regular season. When the boys took to the floor for the first time, it was Friday, November 17, at the Field House against a fighting Union City team that gave them plenty of trouble. The game was a battle all the way, with Union City leading when but seconds were left. Sulkey hit a foul shot to make it 28-27 just before the gun was fired. Evidently they hadn't caught their breath yet by the time they met New Castle the next week. On November 22, the Trojans handed them defeat on a 29-22 platter.

Left-Bob Barker, Rex Leeka, The Cats began to click two days later when the El- wood Panthers tangled here in a cat-and-cat iight. Pifer scored l7 of the team's 54 points, while the losers settled for 23. An old foe of long standing was downed on December l when the Cats gobbled up the Frankfort Hot Dogs, 27-19. Richmond was the next victim when Fifer again sparked the boys to a 39-27 victory. The unde- feated Anderson Indians maintained a still unblemished record the next night when they downed my boys by a 32-27 count. With four wins scored on the home Hoor, the Purple- clads added a Hfth victory on December 15, when the Lo- ganberries came to time. Life was just a bowl of cherries for the Cats, 4l-28, as they broke Logansport's winning streak. That old last-second jinx jumped up to plague the feline warriors the next night on the Shelbyville court. One of the Bears tossed in a foul shot with thirteen sec- onds to go . . . result, 37-36. The final game of 1944 went to Fort Wayne on December 22, when a long and high one was dropped in the basket by the Fort Wayne quintet. This last-second stuff was beginning to get mo- notonous, if you want to know. The Fort Wayne tally, 42-40. Hosts to the annual New Y-ear's Day tourney in the Field House, the Bearcats remembered Emily Post and per- mitted their guests to take first and second places. Frank- fort downed Marion, 38-31, and Jeff of Lafayette repeated the idea by dropping Central, 28-24, ln the consolation game the boys downed Marion, 3l-23, while Jeff went The 1945 Magician Above-Vaughn Smith, Denver Wooten, Bill Bogart.

Cats tangled with Kats on January 5, but the wild ones from Kokomo took a 38-32 victory. Sulkey was gone from the line-up since he had enlisted in the Navy. Then the boys snapped back into the win-column seven days later when they went to town at Marion, 38-25. Still winners on January 17, the local boys took the Tip- ton battle, 34-26, in a strictly team-victory. In great form two nights later at Lafayette, the Cats lassoed the Bron- chos, 38-27, a fitting revenge for the January l defeat. The Anderson Indians had to buy new headdresses after their game with us on January 26, since the Cats plucked them of the very last feather in their war bonnets. For, lo, the poor Indians, 49-27. That last-second grem- lin popped up again and allowed Tech of Indianapolis to pull the game out of the fire in the closing seconds, 37-35. Alexandria was added to the losing side on February 3, in a slow 32-23 victory. The Cats had bounced back into fighting trim the next week when they made the New Castle quintet call A'Uncle" after a 40-32 count. And then, before we realized it, the last game of the season was here. And what a thriller of an overtime contest with Richmond, won by the boys, 42-40. Then the tournaments! Sectional winners, regional winners, and on to the semi-finals! As I said once before, boy, oh boy, what an outfit! Nice going, fellers.

Fifteen fellows have worked under the direction of Coach Ettore Antonini this year. While the record of two wins and four losses does not sound too promising, you'll appreciate some of a coach's difficulties when I tell you that some of the boys who began the season are now wrestling with army and navy problems. Since many of the present squad are under- classmen, I can always look forward to the future with confidence. The Bearcats were hosts to the little state meet in the Central gymnasium on February 16 and 17, with the first and second places going to Crawfordsville and Bloomington. The lo- cal boys came in third. In the state meet held at Crawfordsville, Central placed sixth with a total of 28 points. Capt. Ray Reason won iirst place in the 154-pound class to annex our only individual state championship. He bested an East Chicago boy counted one of the best athletes at the meet. Other state placements were made by Charles King, second in the 103- pound class: Bill Abercrombie, third in the 138-pounders. These boys train constantly without gaining too much public acclaim from local fans but that doesn't prevent them from doing their best for Central. Three cheers for my Bearcat wrestlers! 90 The 1945 Magician l945 Schedule April lO H Central-Anderson, April Zl H Muncie Relays April 24 H Central-Richmond April 28 T Kokomo Relays May 4 T Big Ten Meet CTech of Indianapolis, hostj May ll H Sectional Meet CBurris School, hostj Spring and the usual call for trackmen found several veterans answering Coach Antonini's summons. Among the men who had participated last year were Jack Adams, low hurdles and half-mile relay: Fred Randall, 440-yard dash and half-mile relay: Jim Saunders, dashes, Gene Martin, 880-yard run and mile relay, Vaughn Smith, pole vault and high hurdles: Bill Abercrombie, mile. Since these boys were members of a team which took the sectional meet and placed third in the North Central aifair, prospects for this year were promising. The track season started out with the annual interclass meet, winners to name the Relays Queen. In spite of Jack Adams and his 26M points, the seniors were edged out by the jun- iors, who scored a total of 46 points. Nominations for the queen's role were made by the junior contestants, and when the voting was over and counted, Beverly Armstrong, a mighty pretty little brunette, was the reigning monarch, Her attendants were Annabelle Halliday and Shurley Lee. They made a very pretty trio as they presided at the Muncie Relays and handed out smiles and trophies to all the winners. I don't think any of the boys minded a bit, either. Of course, I expect the boys to garner plenty of wins this spring, For when it comes to athletics, those Bearcats of mine are pretty good, even if I do say so myself, Row l-Karl Mudge, Bob Shively, Art Langdon, Gene Dance, Herman Margell, Diamond Hays, Gene Cole- man, Bob Pouch.

Intramural Basketball Not all the Bearcats are on the varsity squads, for here are boys who participate in Central's intra- mural basketball program, directed by Coach Alvy Havens. Twelve teams began league play this winter, and when the end of regular play was reached, four teams were tied for first place. The Whiz Kids, the Speed Kids, the Bluebirds, and the Bingo Five each had won nine games and lost two. To decide the champion of champions, a four- team tourney was held. ln the semi-finals the Bluebirds lost to the Whiz Kids, while the Bingo Five took the count from the Speed Kids. The final game saw the Kids victorious, 31-26, with a record of ll victories and 2 defeats for a per- centage of .846. The champions appear in the top photograph. Mike Elliott and George Madix are in the front row. In the second are Dick Penny, Jack Adams, Bob Cunningham, Bill Hanks.

Later: The men in the Trojan horse had nothing on the Cats tonight as they invaded New Castle territory time and again to score 33 points to the 9 scored by their opponents. Nice start for the year, I'd say. ' Activity-ticket books go on sale today. And what a line-up of eventsl Seems to indicate a busy year. After a rousing pep session, the first of the year, the Cats clawed the Redskins from Anderson to the sweet tune of 46-7. Are those boys going places, or are they? 'Long about here I ought to take time to mention those vocational carpentry boys of mine who spent the summer working on the new Blaine cafeteria. They've finished a lot of the work but still have a few more things to do. Bearcats shine in many activities, didn't I always sav? October The seniors might just as well have named their all- school dance after the Tech game tonight the "Victory Parade" instead of the "Pigskin Parade." For it was a parade, as the Cats defeated the Indianapolis team by a 33-0 score. The birthday of James Whitcomb Riley, Indiana's own, was observed today with a special assembly at which Dr. George Davis of Purdue spoke. He recited a number of Riley favorites. During the fifth period today. one of the activity-ticket numbers was given by Dr. A. B. Keeler of Mexico City. who discussed our southern neighbor and showed an interesting film of life south of the border. The Bearcats are going at such a pace, so I suppose that's why we took time out today to attend a Fire Prevention program. Centralites give generously to the Community War Fund and the total is S21 1.74. Not bad, says I. The first of the R.G.T.C. uniforms appear in our halls. The fellows look as if they were ready to lead a fashion parade of their own. Hope those shirt-buttons are sewed on tightly because I've noticed a lot of mighty puffed-out chests today. "To the Ladies," the story of the WACS told in film, was shown to Central senior girls by local WAC recruit- ing ofhcer. Local CAP oliicials were in charge of an Air Force pro- gram held today for boys between 17 and 18 years of age. 20. Hearing and vision tests given to Centralites today. Have to see that these people are healthy and full of vim and vigor. Twenty-five Red Cross boxes for children in the liber- ated countries were filled by Central students, one-half by the modern living classes and one-half by the senior class. Wait a minute . . . half of twenty-five is twelve and a half . . . does that mean when each group did half, it also did half of another box? Or . . . oh, well, the big idea is that twenty-five boxes were filled. CAP tests given today, too. Number of Central boys sign applications for air combat crew training in the U. S. Navy. 27. Guess what happens now? The teachers go to In- dianapolis, and the students . . . go about their own business. except for the Robed Choir members who go to Indianapolis Friday night to sing with a statc choral group.

The annual championship banquet to award the North Central Conference trophy to the Bearcats was held at the Y.M.C.A. tonight. Suggestions made that the Bear- cats be given a permanent award so that the crowd could go to one of the other towns for a change. Members of the senior council named today. Now, watch the seniors begin to make the fur liy .... On second thought, I don't like that figure of speech. Mr. Cooley dedicates the music department Service Flag at the first performance of the department's fall concert held tonight in the auditorium. Naomi Fisher. editor of the Munsonian, explains plan to send a special Christmas edition of the paper to all Centralites now in service, the cost to be met by pro- ceeds of the fall concert in its second performance tonight. Basketball takes the center of the stage as the Cat quintet meets Union City at the Field House tonight. A nip-and- tuck affair with the Cats coming out with a two-point margin, 29-27. First R.O.T.C. Corps Day. Are those boys somethin'! Students in the speech and music classes present the annual Thanksgiving program today. 25. Thanksgiving vacation. Otto Schact, pianist, is heard in a lecture-recital today by activity-ticket holders. Local R.O.T.C. advisory committee holds an important meeting in Mr. Allman's office. The community co- operation and support for our newest organization is certainly appreciated by me and all the rest of my outfit. December Senior dramatics class presents the one-act play, "Dark- ness," before a 9A assembly. Could you say they threw some light on the subject this time? All right, I only asked. Seniors skate at Gibson's from 7 to 10 o'clock. And that was too long for some of them, who grew so tired of skating in the usual fashion that they tried their own style . . . a slightly backward one, if you ask me. Gosh, I bet I never manage to get out of bed tomorrow morning. . Dauber Club presents the excellent Paderewski film. "Moonlight Sonata," for members. Strange to think that the shadow still continues to play the living music. The Honor Society holds its first initiation of the year. Art students finish wrapping more than 200 Red Cross packages destined for hospitalized service men in Indiana hospitals. Senior class jewelry arrives! And it seems to me that some of it changed hands-or fingers-mighty quick. Some of the girls also became pinups, too. Senior dramatics class presents "The Birds' Christmas Carol," previously given for an AAUW' meeting. The old familiar story still has a wide appeal. Members of the Munsonian staff mail many hundreds of the Christmas issue to Centralites in the armed forces. Vocal students combine forces to present the Christmas oratorio, "The Messiah," in the High Street Methodist Church. Students gather to sing Christmas carols from 8:15 to 8:30 in the auditorium. Griffin Stephenson, art Christmas music on the Kitselman Memorial organ this morning. School closes today for the annual two-week Christmas vacation. See you all next year. teacher, plays a program of January School opens again. Can't say I'm sorry, either, because I like to be with my friends. Definitely it's a new year because the senior committee to select Commencement invitations made its choice today . . . just think, only five months more. . . . Certainly Commencement is on its way, for today seniors were measured for caps and gowns. Pretty soon senior photos for the Magician will be taken, and then I'll really be aware of flitting time. Archibald Gilchrist, an Australian newspaper man, speaks to the students about the role of the Pacific in the post- war world. Since the Rotary Club sponsored his appear- ance, I wonder if I should have spelled it "roll"? CI hate myself when I write stuff like that.j Dauber Club opens an exhibit of paintings by Francis F. Brown, Ball College art teacher. The school was saddened to hear today of the death of Clyde Wellinger, a member of the Central faculty for shock it will be to those twenty-five years. What a former students of his, now in the services, with whom he corresponded. 20. Seniors present two performances of the annual class play, "June Mad." Girls were awarded Red Cross certificates in nutrition today in a special assembly at which Dr. L. A. Pittenger, president emeritus of Ball State, spoke. James Ellingwood, New York state secretary of the Y.M.C.A., speaks at a special assembly. No Young Park, Chinese author, is the second in the Rotary-sponsored panel to be heard by Centralites. i'Two times two is four . . . or at least I hope it is . . ." just about describes the state of mind of the seniors today as they took the regular math tests to see who gets to stay after school for the next several weeks. First semester ends. Only eighteen more weeks until I see the end of another school year. Second semester opens and for the first time in many years, no new l0B's. I mean, we have them but they've been here for a semester so that sorta takes the newness off, doesn't it? . . . Mrs. Nay, after twenty-live years at Central, takes a leave of absence for this semester .... Mr. Anderson, assuming all attendance supervision, moves to expanded quarters on the first floor in order to take care of all new customers. 30. The 9A's entertain with their class play, "Are You Mr. Butterworth?" Well, are you? February Seniors dance at the Y.W.C.A. tonight. If Mr. Dailey seems distracted these days, remember he just became a father yesterday. l5. Music students appear in their annual extravaganza, "Musical Moods." Cats close basketball season with a 42-40 win over the Richmond Red Devils. They end up in fourth place in the North Central rating. Not bad, says I. The first Senior Career Confe'rence Day is held for local seniors and those from Burris and Delaware County schools. Through the cooperation of Muncie civic clubs and other organizations, an imposing list of speakers was presented during the day. Seniors were unanimous in declaring it one of the most important events on the calendar. Sectional opens tonight, but Bearcats play first game tomorrow morning .... Salom Risk, the Syrian Yan- kee, came to Central for a return engagement today. THEY DID IT! THEY DID IT! THE BEARCATS TOOK THE FIRST SECTIONAL SINCE 1938! WHATTA TEAM! Now that I've caught my breath, I can add that they defeated Center, Yorktown, Burris, and Royerton to annex the title. At first I couldn't figure out why everybody was whis- pering around the school this morning. Then when I tried to talk, I discovered I had no voice either. That last game with Royerton did it. I yelled myself horse . . . Imean, hoarse. March AND THE CATS TAKE THE REGIONAL! YIPPEE, OR SHOULD I SAY MEOXV? Richmond fell by the wayside by a 39-25 score in the afternoon and Lewisville took the count that night, 4l-29. On to the semi-finals, fellows. MTMM, Y, YV 5-9. During the annual Red Cross Drive, Centralites contrib- 10. 12. 16. 19. 20. 21. 23. 22 26. 27. 28. uted a total of 3282.10 The boys take Auburn during the afternoon game of the semi-final. But Huntington proves too much to handle in the night game . . . score, 37-42. But those fellows deserve the name of Bearcat all right. And I'm doggone proud of them . . . or should I say I'm catgone proud of them? I don't like that word "dog." C. E. Belzer does some interesting experiments for the science classes. Sophomores hear firsthand account of the war from Miss Hilda Beal, a teacher from England. If you see students frothing at the mouth for the next few days, don't be disturbed . . . they're just trying to blow some bubbles of their own after seeing 'iBubbles Concerto" today. Today is the first meeting of Central's rehabilitation committee, named CI quotej "to make plans and devise procedures for aiding discharged service men who come to Central for help with problems of rehabilitation" fclose quoted. Mr. Anderson heads the committee. The Central Athletic Board announces that 515,000 from receipts of Bearcat athletic contests has now been set aside for the building fund to be used to construct a stadium on the east side of the North Walnut Street Field. See what the Bearcat warriors accomplish! Students contribute to the three-day sale of Easter seals sponsored by the Society for Crippled Children. -23. Juniors present their version of "Brother Goose." Spring has nnally arrived. Just look at the faraway expressions! Anna Bird Stewart, authority on Shakespeare, speaks at an activity-ticket assembly. She also speaks to several classes, and when several would-be writers heard that she revised one manuscript more than forty times, they definitely decided to be wrong and not write. More pencils were forgotten or lost or misplaced today! But we are told that the new pencil machine installed by the Munsonian did a rushing business. Miss Edwards wanted to see how it worked, too. 28-30. Hi-Y sponsors highly successful pre-school services 29. 30. from 7:45 to 8:05 each morning as a part of the Central observance of Holy Week.

The juniors make line hosts, Alan Hoff and his band play at the Masonic Temnle, scene of the dance, V-E Day! One more to go. Those music students again, this time with their spring concert. Now, I know graduation is near for today the seniors entertain their mothers at the annual tea. Today, the annual Honor Awards assembly sponsored by the Honor Society is held. And a mighty fine showing do all the honored Centralites make! Decoration Day . . . and I can't prevent myself from thinking of the graves of the Centralites scattered all over the world. June The seniors dine at their annual class banquet. School days are over for the seniors as they gather to hear Dr. Henry Hitt Crane of Detroit, the Commence- ment speaker. School closes for the rest of us, but it'll only be three months until most of you return. I'll be waiting for you! B THE BEARCAT.

If I weren't a Bearcat, I might be getting a little tired just now, too. But when did a Bearcat ever give up anyway? Besides, I want you to meet the people who helped me to show you around the place. COh, they assisted me just a litt1e.j Chief helpers on this trip are the four you see here with me. The three fair young ladies fyuwekumj formed the board in charge of editorial Work. The young man CHiya, Jack- sonlj was the busy, and I do mean busy, business manager. Lucille Rhinehart and Florine Stoner directed the general editorial staff, while Nadine Benne was the artist who did my por- traits, helped to plan the layouts, and designed the cover. Jack Munson headed the business staff.

Since all copy is prepared by the editorial staff, you can see that the editorial trio kept mighty busy. Some of those nights when they worked until 10 o'clock, I thought I wouldn't be able to keep up with them. When they had to work during spring vacation . . . well! And the work-scheduling, re-scheduling, checking, re-checking, identifying, typing, editing, planning layouts, pasting, trimming photos, running here and there, and lastly, sometimes eating ham sandwiches. While Lucille, Florine, and Maxine were doing that, Nadine was busy at her drawing board. Of course, I spent a lot of my time posing, but I kept an eye on the others, too. Other students who worked on the editorial staff included Maxine Mapes, editorial assist- ant: Betty Young, Georganna Harmison and Margaret Simpson, senior picture schedules and underclass pictures: Joanne Beatson, Barbara Sherman, Caroline Wilson, snapshots: Tommy Lou Ware, calendar: Mary Ann Slinger, organizations: Charles Van Cleve, sports statistics: Al Weil, some organization writeups. Juniors who helped senior staff members were Jane Jackson, Martha Banta, and Naomi Fisher. In my spare time I dashed oi? the continuity. Jack Munson, the business manager, also had a number of helpers. Working with him on advertising were Marjorie Pierson and Don Beaman. Zola Benner took care of the bookkeep- ing, and did a swell job, too. Bette Devers headed the subscription salesmen: Joann Bragg, Clarence Vardaman Che sold books before he left for Uncle Sam's outfitj, Violet Booher, Jeanne Furnish, Mary Katherine Grover, and Jo Ann Kinzie. Faculty sponsors were Miss Jewel Standerford, editorial: J. Carl Humphrey, business: Griffin Stephenson, art.
