A graduating Class 'of 1929 .numbers forty-seven students.
lheie are thirty two girls and fifteen boys.
't""ii The Class of 1928 had nine pupils born in the month of Septeml er.
The Class of 1929 has one born in that month. The month of August
with nine birthdays leads the list for the class of 1929. There is one pair
of real twins and there are two other graduates born on the same day,
December 20, 1911. All other birthdays are so scattered that no general
statement can be made. Birthdays do not fall on important holidays.
One pupil celebrates January 1. another February 12, while two others
celebrate Christmas on December 26 and 27 respectively.
According to India.na custom, most pupils enter school about the age
of six years and spend twelve years in school, providing they complete the
high school, hence the average student graduating in 1929 should have
been born in 1911. Of this class, one was born in 1913, eleven in 1912,
twenty-six in 1911, six in 1910 and three in 1909.
The average age of the girls is 17 years, 9 months, 11 days.
The average age of the boys is 18 years, 0 months, 29 days.
The girls of this class graduate 5 months and 4 days younger than
the girls of last year's class, the boys graduate 1 month and 14 days
younger. The .oldest member is a boyg the youngest a girl, age 15 years,
11 months and 14 days.
Sixteen members of this class have been absent less than tive days
during the four years in high school. Attendance honors go to Lester
McCuen, who has been neither tardy nor absent. Next in line is Howard
Field who has been neither tardy nor absent during the two years he has
been enrolled in Nappanee High School. The other fourteen in order ol'
least absence are: Virginia Coppes, Carlyle Mullett, Kathryn Knobel, John
Stauffer, Ruth Barnhart, Oscar Kline, Verna Herr, Evelyn Yarian, Opal
Brumbaugh, Chester McCuen, Julia Welty, Ferril Miller, Lillie Crow and
The class of 1929 put on their own commencement.
The class play was entitled "The Genius".
The Salutatory was given by Chester McCuen.
The Valedictory was given by Virginia Coppes.
Commencement date, May 24, 1929, Place, the city Auditorium.

we tell our high school history, let us name those who
Ni , had a part in educating us in the grades. First, Miss Bessie
" 4" Brown, second, Miss Frieda Price, third, Miss Edith Johnson,

In September, nineteen hundred and twenty-five, a group of seventy-
three students, seeking more knowledge, entered Nappanee High School
and were named the "Class of '29."
Regardless of the tortures inflicted upon us by the more experienced
students, we thoroughly enjoyed our Freshman year. We were permitted
to attend the high school Hallowe'en party and we had two parties of our
own: one, a picnic in the baseball park and the other in the gym.
Mr. Trabue was our class advisor, Chester McCuen was president,
Wilma Abell, vice president. and Helen Frederick, secretary-treasurer.
Sixty-two returned for our Sophomore year. It was a pleasant sen-
sation to hear the underclassmen called "green" rather than us. Mr.
Trabue was again selected to be our advisor with the assistance of Mrs.
Bartholomew. Chester was reelected president, his twin, Lester, was
elected vice president and Helen Frederick was again secretary-treasurer.
We had a skating party at Blosser's park during commencement week.
Then came the Junior year with less leisure than before. We selected
Lester to be our captain, Chester, assistant, Maxine Wright, treasurer,
and Julia Welty, secretary. Miss Iffert and Mr. Longfellow were our
class advisors. On December 13, we gave the play "Miss Somebody Else"
and were well pleased with the results.
Then we gave the Seniors and the faculty a Japanese reception.
Geisha girls from the class of '30 were our waitresses.
We had two parties at Blosser's park and would have enjoyed another.
The Seniors entertained us at a Hallowe'en party at the park.
Our Junior class enrollment was fifty-seven. Ruth Weber, Kathryn
Knobel, Launa Beechley, and Howard Field became new members of the
Y Page Twenty-six 1
And now, in our Senior year forty-six have returned to complete
their course. Three of our members, LaDoris Yeater, Edna Gooch and
Lawrence Yeater, graduated from the New Paris High School this spring,
and Willa Walker graduated from a high school in Defiance, Ohio. Madge
Miller was added to our list this year.
We again chose Lester for our president. Mr. Yoder and Mr. Abell
are our class sponsors.
Our class has been well represented in the athletic activities as well
as in the band, orchestra, glee club, and music memory.
The play "The Geniusw was presented.
We were splendidly entertained by the Juniors.
Our course has not all been a bed of roses nor has it been all thorns.
We have tried to deserve our diplomas. To you, who have fallen from our
list, we are sorry that you cannot enjoy commencement with us. We feel
that you have missed a goal worth striving for.
This completes our class history. That which we are now awaiting is
graduation. Tomorrow we will have left Nappanee High School, and our
places will be taken by the underclassmen. These treasured days will
have gone but they will not be forgotten. They are written in our Golden
Book of Memories and even Father Time cannot erase them.
We are reminded of one hundred years ago of the famous "class of '29"
when Holmes and many other prominent men were graduated from Har-
vard. We hope that from our list will arise similar geniuses.
We hope that the future will not disunite us from our classmates but
this is only a class history and you must consult our prophetess concern-
ing our future.

'F-nu long ago-Back to our memory rushes the good old days of
., 1926, when we, a class of 98, entered the Nappanee High School.
' iw- -of Bashful and meek were we, but those days are gone forever. With
Ivan Yoder as president and Mr. Roose and Mrs. Bartholomew as advisor,
we passed through the first year unharmed.
No so long ago-We came back with only 73 to our number. "Pete"
Moore was given the honor of the presidency with "Ike" Phillips as vice
president. Mr. Martin and Miss Lantz were this time chosen as our advisors.
Two skating parties at Blosser's park were the main events of the year.
No bones were broken but many bruises were acquired.
Now-Well, we are back again with a decrease of twelve which leaves
only sixty to the 1930 class. "Newey" Troup our president, Ralph Mitchell,
vice president, and "Max" Clouse pays our debts. Miss lffert and Mr.
Schuler are telling us what not to do this year. The N. H. S. basketball
team consists of only six Juniors and the second team boasts of several of
our boys, also. We showed our excellent talent by the class play which
paid for the exceptional reception we gave the Seniors. We also had a
lively party at John Early's home.

the class of " '31" entered old N. H. S. last year very timidly
and felt that we were in a much more responsible position than
previously and rather doubted whether we could make good our
trusted positions as Freshies. But, the gracious Sophs, helpful Juniors,
and the consoling Seniors bestowed upon us their parental affections and
gave us some sound advice on behavior, etc., which gave us new courage
and soon we started on our "Voyage of Learning."
We had one party last year which was held in the gym. Popcorn,
apples, and cider were served as refreshments and-by the way-dates
afterwards to those who were still hungry.
This year we are fifty-eight strong-not so strong in numbers but in
mighty works and deeds. We are trying hard to live up to our cla.ss motto:
"Teil conquers all things."
As for our social program this year we had a Hallowe'en party with
the other classes of the high school. Later on we had a hardtime party at
the home of the Price twins to which all came for a jolly good time and
weren't disappointed by not having it.
As the close of school draws nigh we happily bequeath our seats in
the assembly to next year's Sophs and willingly accept the gift of as-
sembly seats from the Juniors for next year's use.

the fourth day of September, we entered the Nappanee High
School as green Freshies. After wandering about the corridors
.lei-U m. trying to find our classes we became accustomed to the ways of
the upper classmen.
At the beginning of the first semester there were sixty students en-
rolled as Freshmen. Later, Ruth Felter and Richard Linvill enrolled, but
at the end of the second semester seven students had left our class making
our enrollment fifty-five.
We elected the following class officers: Lowell Mullett, presidentg
Robert Miller, vice presidentg Glen Field, secretary-treasurer. We also
chose Mr. Roose and Miss Smith as our class advisors. Crimson and
white were chosen as our class colors and the red rose as our class flower.
Our party and also one in which the whole High School participated
was the HalloWe'en party. The prinicpal feature was a play given by the
Hi-Y and Girl Reserves, and another was a stunt given by the Freshman
class. Refreshments of popcorn, apples and cider were served.
peared that everyone had a good time.
A few of the Freshmen who have received notice this year are: Charles
Lehman, one of the "Pups", Glen Holderman, the gum-chewerg Marion
Rensberger, the "Sonny Boyg" and Robert Blosser, the Freshman, with the
coat of many colors.

Feeling fine and dandy we entered the eighth grade with Mr. Stiyckei
to guide us along our way. At the beginning of the term, we elected the
following officers: President, Wilfred Troup, Vice President, Carolyn Mul-
lettg Secretary-Treasurer, Evelyn Walters.
Although the high school pupils thought we were green, we think our-
selves to be quite big as we have a wonderful basketball team with Fritz,
Lamar, Willie, Reed, Newcomer, who had quite an inspiration in a certain
girl in our class, we are toldg also Karl Freese, the two Bills, and Max who
made a snappy player. We won an overtime game from Roosevelt Junior
High of Elkhart.
We also had quite a brilliant girls team with Madeline and Ruth tip-
ping the ball. All the girl teams in the High School had a tournament in
which we won several games.
Wishing to do the seventh graders a great favor, we invited them to
our Hallowe'en party.
A member of our class had a perfect score at the music memory con-
test for which she received a medal.
We will always remember Mr. Strycker as having been a true friend
and helper throughout the seventh and eighth grades and even when out
of school we'll never forget dear old N. H. S.

Last fall when the seventh graders first came into the building, they
were amazed and bewildered by the new way lto themj ol' getting an edu-
cation by passing around to different rooms and receiving their education
by having it handed to them as if it were so much food. They got in jams
in front of class-room doors that would take an experienced traliic cop to
extricate them. Whenever some one was seen to run in the hall for fear of
being late to class, you would hear some one say, "Another seventh-

At last we have completed this volume of the "NAPANET"-the hard-

Annual ever published by a Senior class of Nappanee High School. Each
member of the staff has worked hard in making this Annual what it is.

T our ceremony of initiation which took place last November,
twenty-five girls were recognized as members of the Girl Reserve
k'1llUll'v':j club. Our mothers attended the ceremony and helped us spend a
happy evening afterwards.
Our club purpose this year is: "As loyal Girl Reserves we shall en-
deavor to help others in fulfilling their obligations to themselves, their
friends, the world, and to God, and to assist them in developing their
lives physically, socially, mentally, and morally."
In our programs for this year we have tried to follow the idea of our
code as representing the life of Christ, Whom We have made our example.
When possible, such programs were given as would lend to the appropriate-
ness of the season. The club is divided into three "interest groups"--the
art group, the sports group, and the dramatics group-in which the girls
may find an outlet for their various interests.
An occasional social meeting was held to relieve the intellectual strain
of our study. Some of these were: a gypsy supper, at which we enter-
tained the Elkhart Girl Reservesg a banquet with the Hi-y Club, an even-
ing party with the Elkhart Girl Reserves and Hi-Y at Elkhartg and a hike
and weiner roast.
At the installation ceremony held in April, a very capable group of
girls was installed as the cabinet for next year's club, and we hope for
another year as successful as the last has been. The officers for next
year are as follows: Wilma Stose, presidentg Wanda Minard, vice presi-
dentg Mary Pippen, secretary: Kathryn Metzler, treasurer.
CODE Eager for knowledge,
Gratious in manner, Reverent to God,
Impartial in judgment, Victorious over self,
Ready for service, Ever dependable,
Loyal to friends. Sincere at all times.
Reaching toward the best, To find and give the best.
Earnest in purpose, SLOGAN
Seeing the beautiful, To face life squarely.

Twelve new members were taken into the club this year, which made
a membership of twenty-seven. The regular initiation was given at the
school building and then the candidates were blindfolded and taken to a
church about three miles from town. There they were told to wait for
further instructions. They finally found their way back to town.
OLDER BOYS' CONFERENCE
Fourteen members of the club accompanied by the sponsor attended
the eighth Older Boys' Conference, which was held at Muncie, Nov. 30th
and Dec. 1st and 2nd. There were many interesting and inspirational ad-
dresses and the boys reported a good time. The conference next year will
be held at Elkhart.
We enjoyed a bean supper on March 13, which was served by the mem-
bers of the cooking class under the direction of Miss Nada Wright. There
were several short speeches by members of the club, singing, and a short
talk by the principal, Mr. O. J. Yoder.

The work of the club this year has been very commendable but there
is room for improvement, and we who are leaving hope that the members
will support the new officers in a loyal manner and hold the standards
high. The club gave twenty-five dollars toward the library fund and fif-
teen dollars for the teaching of religious education in the p-ublic schools.
Last spring th Hi-Y gave a gold basket-ball to the boy, on the first
ten players, who showed the best sportsmanship throughout the year. The
club also gave a jeweled Hi-Y pin to the member of the club who had the
highest scholastic standing and also on sportsmanship. The basket-ball
was awarded to Wayne Best and the pin to Lester McCuen. The club plans
to give these awards each year.

March 26, 1929 marked the second year of the Nappanee Music Ap-
preciation team's entering the District Contest, and the fifth year of en-
tering into any contest. Because other county teams failed to enter the
County Contest, it was forfeited to Nappanee. The District Contest was
held at Knox, Nappanee taking first place, with a lead of seven points.
On March 30, the team journeyed to Indianapolis and, in reality,
took fourth place as last year, but on account of three ties, we were
obliged to take sixth.
Because of the team's success last year, honor sweaters were award-
ed them. The team graduates this year, one of the team having been in
for five years, one for four years, and one for two years.

in events of the 1928-29 history of the Girls' Glee Club. Their efficient
participation in other programs throughout the year is a result of diligent
work under the auspices of Miss Lantz. A theater party at South Bend

The Qtr iBrinne
A SWISS STORY
SHABBY little plaid skirt with a tightly woven green sweater
formed the dress of sixteen year old Alice, who was the daugh-
ter of an American mother and a Swiss father. She inherited
a love for literature from her educated mother and a very deep love for the
Alps from her devoted father. She was alert, and quickly advanced in her
lessons, which she took daily from her mother. She was very active and
extremely boyish in her manner. Her ability to climb Mount Kertiz within
three minutes of the time it took her experienced father, won for her much
admiration. Alice Wa.s capable of handling the farm when her father
guided tourists through the Alps, and was fond of making cheese which
she sold, saving the money toward her college fund.
Alice lived ten miles from the nearest village on the family farm,
which consisted of a. three-room hut, a stable, and a cheese house. The
buildings were substantial, although they were not very attractive. This
unique spot is at the beginning of one of the most noted trails through
the Alps. At the very back door of the hut rose Mount Kertiz five thou-
sand and five hundred feet above sea. level. Cattle grazed on the side of
the mountain under the protection of Alice who was a sheperdess as Well
as a farmer.
Mr. Cavock had been confined to his bed for several days with a severe
cold which he had contracted on the last tour, and Alice's mother had taken
a party on the tour and left Alice to care for her invalid father.
Mr. Cavock improved rapidly under the diligent care of his daughter
and was able to journey to the village to transact some business within a
few days after his wife's departure.
Alice had completed the domestic duties inside the hut and was work-
ing in the cheese house. The ingredients which she was using were very
expensive and she had invested the college fund in them. If the cheese
turned out well, it meant a tidy sum for the fund, but on the other hand
the least little mistake meant a great loss to her. As Alice worked, she
thought about her sum hoping to get enough to enter college in two years.
The cheese had advanced to the most tedious process, and Alice was think-
ing of nothing, then she looked up Mount Kertiz and could faintly see a
light. Alice started up the mountain side at full speed. After a while she
saw a man, face downwards, who wore a scorched coat. About twelve feet
away an airplane was burning so rapidly that Alice feared the flames
might reach the limp body of the young aviator. She carefully but swiftly
pulled him away from the burning plane, realizing that she must summon
aid. Alice ran down to the hut and called her dog. "Here you must make
1929 f '
Page Si ty A
speed and carry this to Grandpa White, Browny. Please hurry. Then
bring the message back and up to me if Grandpa sends one. That's a
good pall Hurry," breathed Alice between pants. She ran back to where
the young man lay and gave him a little water which she had carried
back with her for that purpose.
In half an hour Browny came up the mountain side and looked into
the eyes of his mistress for a word of praise. Alice patted him and praised
his speed. But Browny was yet unsatisfied. He tried to show something
to Alice and she could not imagine what it was. Finally she noticed the
note tied to his collar. It read, "Doc is on a mission at Gluten. Will not
be back before evening. I am coming with my liniment.
"The dear old thing. It's always liniment," said Alice to herself. "But
we must get him to the hut or he will catch cold in this damp atmosphere."
Alice had an idea, and even Browny sensed that it was a good one.
She ran to the hut and gathered up a quilt and then looked for Grandpa
White. Yes, she could see him coming. When he arrived, they hurried up
the mountain with Browny following. Browny sniffed at the body and
then whined until Alice scolded him so severely he walked off with his
tail between his legs and his head drooped.
Staggering under the weight, Alice and Grandpa White bore the body
of the aviator for a distance of half a mile before they stopped to rest a
few minutes and then resumed their journey to the hut. Alice hurried
about and made ready a place where they might lay the man to administer
aid to him until the doctor should arrive.
It was ten .o'clock the same night and the young man was sitting with
the Cavock family in the little living room. He was relating his story of
how he had been sent to make pictures of the Alps for the Geology pro-
fessor of Oxford and how he had been searching for a place to land as it
was impossible to make pictures in such dense fog. He told of seeing a
Hash and said that he did not remember anything from that moment until
a few minutes ago when he awoke and found himself in the midst of such
a charming family.
It was Alice's turn next, to tell of the rescue and to inform the aviator
that his plane was burned. She expected him to take the news very
seriously, but he only smiled and said he had discovered something dearer
to him than any pictures which he might have found or than his airplane
which could be replaced. He looked into the eyes of Alice and asked if
she would not return with him to Oxford. Then he cast an eye toward her
father as if to ask his permission. Just then Grandpa White made his

presence known by helping the aviator out. "Let her go!" he said. "She
can read all kinds of books and she's happier reading than doing any other
thing. Why, it is just like the story she read to me when I was sick last
winter. The Princess rescues the Prince and he takes her to his castle
where they live happy together."
"Well, if your mother consents," said Mr. Cavock slowly.
Between sobs Alice choked the words, "Oh, she will! She will be so
"Q9n writing Qu Cheap"
"Between now and the end of the semester, I will require each of you
to write and hand in three essays."
When my English teacher uttered those terrifying and detestable
Words, she seemed, to me, to be a very cruel person who delighted in mak-
ing the lives of other people as unhappy as possible. This was a most
abominable sentence and held more terrors for me than any which might
be inflicted on me by a judge for any misdemeanor or breach of the peace.
It will go down in the annals of history as being worse than the ten plagues
infiicted on the Egyptians by God.
Never-the-less, I resigned myself to my fate and considered about
what I should write. At first I thought it would be easy to write an essay,
because I could write about anything from tin-cans to fairy-princesses,
however, it was this vagueness that was the proverbial monkey-wrench
thrown in the machinery. I pondered and pondered, accepted and rejected
different subject matters until a week had passed and I then didn't have a
single or even a married word written, and as I am writing now, it still is
more or less of a mystery to me about what I am writing.
This, the first essay, in which I am now endeavoring to elucidate my-
self-no, I do not know the meaning of "elucidate", but I heard my
English teacher use it one day, so, it ought to be good enough for me-it's
all for a good grade anyway, so what is the difference? However, as I
was about to say, before I rambled off the subject, as I often do-but it is
on account of the subject, for, surely, it couldn't be my fault, there, I
wandered off the subject again but what I aimed to say was that, the first
essay, this one, was to contain from three to four hundred words.
I think, however, that I will compromise and put three hundred and
fifty in mine-that ought to be enough to get a good grade. I wish QI am
going to put this in and maybe I wonit have to write any more essaysb, I
wish that this were the last essay instead of the first.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet iiowing breast
A tree who looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray
A tree who may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair
Upon Whose bosom snow has lain
Who has lived intimately with rain
Poems are made by fools like me
But only God can make a tree."
Have you ever followed, day by day, the same route to your work, and
suddenly discovered an object, though you have passed every day, which
seems suddenly new and unfamiliar? Something you have perhaps looked
at yet never really seen. This had been my experience.
Every day for three years I had passed the long row of pine trees
which grew on Mrs. Linton's lawn, and had looked at them unconsciously
each time. Then one night I saw them for the lirst time. I was coming
home from my work, and as I drew near these trees I suddenly stopped and
stared. They were suddeny changed from just trees, to a thing of beauty.
They were dignified yet seemed friendly, almost human, with their stately
slender limbs spread out, dark against the twilight sky. Oh, they were
beautiful, these trees.
From then on I studied trees but my favorite tree was the big maple
outside my window. It stood tall, spacious, and motherly, with its broad
arms outstretched as though offering protection to all. In among the
branches birds had expertly built their nests, and sang happily to me each
morning at sunrise.
In the summer my tree was calm, cool, and green-looking, and after
a hard day in the hot city I loved to sit beneath its soothing branches
with my favorite book, and rest.
Then comes autumn and the tree puts aside its cool green for the
warmer colors, glowing reds, yellows and oranges to cheer me, and make
Page Seventy-two l
me forget the approaching winter, to make me forget my cares and come
out and enjoy nature, to forget I am growing old. It seems as though it
is trying to be unusually bright to make up for colorless days which are
Winter! In winter my tree stands big and bare, outlined against the
cold bleak sky, but there is even in this picture a beauty about the tree.
It has a gracefulness about it which strikes us. Then sometimes in winter
its branches are laden with snow, bent and glistening white.
Again spring comes. It is wonderful to watch the tree develop. First
tiny buds appear, they grow, larger and larger, until there is the tiny leaf.
Again my tree is green.
It is not hard to understand the feelings Joyce Kilmer must have felt
when he expressed his thoughts in the words-"But only God can make a
Glluriusitpz Zin Qsset
Webster defines curiosity as "a disposition to inquire into anything
especially something new or strange, often implying meddlesomenessf' It
is only by being curious that we learn. If we are not enough interested
to be curious about a. thing no one is going to be able to teach us. They
may tell us and explain to the smallest detail but we have not heard, or
if we hear have not been sufficiently intelligent, to comprehend the greater
part of it.
Some people naturally have a larger capacity for learning than others,
and some develop a large capacity. If you have ever observed any learned
people, one of the first things you will notice is the fact that they always
show a great deal of interest in anything with which they are not perfectly
familiar. It is not an idle curiosity but a desire to learn something which
may be of future use to them.
Children are especially curious, and for the first five or six years of
their life they learn almost entirely by asking questions and by their own
experience. What is this but a disposition to inquire into something that
is new to them? Some of their questions show a, great deal of in-
telligence and forethought, although at times they may be quite embar-
rassing to their parents. For instance there is a well known story of a
small boy who sat and watched his mother's callers-of whom one was
famous for her remarkably long discourse. When there was a lull in the
volley of words he asked, "Mrs. Brown is your tongue loose at both ends ?"
"No, why do you ask ?"
"Well Dad said it was loose at both ends and wagged in the middle."
1 Page Seventy-three
Evidently this boy was curious because of a fact stated by his elder.
He could not doubt his father's word, yet he must have proof of the state-
ment before he could accept it as a truth-a habit we would all do well to
But what of the last part of our definition, that part which says
"often implying meddlesomeness ?" Would we advise anyone to cultivate
this as a part of his character?
The common gossip and town busy-body are public nuisances and
should be treated as such. More harm can be done by a gossip than most
people realize. It is a fault of which anyone may be guilty and of which
most are at some time or other.
I once knew a man who was remarkably free from any tendency to
put others in a bad light. When he was asked why he so seldom said
anything against others he told them his motto, which had been his
mother's before him, was "If you can't say something good about someone,
don't say anything." If more of us would only follow his rule curiosity
would always be an asset and never a defect in our character.

Struggling in the arms of Morpheus, I finally became aware of the
fact that my mother was standing by the side .of my bed. "It's so cold,"
she said, "that I brought this hot chocolate up for you to drink so that you
will be warm while you are dressing." Blessing this admirable fore-
thought, I hastily swallowed the contents of the steaming cup she pre-
sented to me. "Oh, don't be in a hurry," my mother said. "It's only
seven-thirty. Take all the time you want. I'll write you a. good excuse if
you are tardyf' I rubbed my eyes, for I was sure I was asleep, but no,
there stood my mother, smiling at me. I hastily dressed, owing to the
gooseflesh which persistently crept out on me because .of a. low ther-
After a hearty breakfast of ham and eggs, I started for school. The
first period passed uneventfully, except for one thing. Mr. Quinn stepped
into the assembly and his advent caused an awful secret to be disclosed.
The door leading to the fire-escape was banging and, as he crossed the
assembly to close it, the wind came in, in an enormous gust, which blew off
his toupee. He was very much embarrassed and hastily left the assembly.
Soon after this incident, the bell rang and I went to Chemistry class.
Mr. Yoder was rather late to class, but when he arrived, he pulled
behind him a large ice-cream freezer, which we soon discovered to be filled
with Eskimo pies. He told us that he did not think we understood the
P g S vcmty-four
f 1 xx
ls .1 A 5
Eskimo pie, judging by the way we bought them at ball games, and that
the best way to get knowledge was to experiment on the subject, so he had
ten ordered apiece for every Chemistry student. Eating ten Eskimo pies
greatly helped us to appreciate them, and before we were through, we
understood them thoroughly.
When the third period came I went to English class. The first thing
Miss Smith said was "I want you to write an essay." This announcement
was greeted with a variety of groans. She then withdrew from her desk
a five pound box of candy, said she would pass it around and that we should
take all the candy we wanted and then write an essay from three to twenty-
five words on the merits of the candy. She said that she would have eaten
it herself, but she was trying to reduce so she gave it to us.
The two hours following English were spent in eating and sleeping.
When the second period in the afternoon rolled around, I wondered what
would happen. Miss Iffert had not assigned a lesson and I wondered if
she might spring a, test on us. As the bell rang, Miss Ifert approached a
victrola which she had borrowed from the music room, and, as she put on a
record, told us that she had observed that many of her students were not
very graceful and she had decided we needed to dance, while she personally
instructed us in that gentle art. To the tune of "There's a Rainbow Round
My Shoulder," we were soon dancing, or what we thought was dancing,
around the room.
After this enjoya.b1e period, I hated to go to Civics, but when I got
there, Mr. Trabue told us that we would spend the period riding around in-
specting the gas pipes. He would provide popcorn and apples in case we
might get hungry. I rose with a shout of joy to get my wraps when-
"Where am I?" I dazedly inquired.
"That five ton truck nearly gave you your everlasting," said the white
capped nurse. "You have been unconscious for two days."
"I might have known itj' I muttered, and turned over to enter into
that glorious day dream once more.
Essay. Wilma Abell '29.
Betty Carton had taken a commercial course, and now she was the
private secretary of Mr. Grey, who was a member of a large business firm
in Boston. Betty lived in an apartment building where she had rented a
few rooms, and she had furnished them to suit herself, because she just
had herself to please.
Betty was an orphan child, and at the orphanage she had been treated
very kind and gracious by her matron, because she was more willing to help
her than the other children. When she was fifteen years old, a beautiful
lady came and took Betty with her. The lady was not kind to Betty, so
she had not found a real companion. Betty then to.ok a commercial course,
and now she was a private secretary of Mr. Grey.
Betty had completed her home work on this morning, and soon she
was ready to go to her job. The office was about a mile distant, therefore
she always took the street car. Betty didn't have any particular friend,
so on this morning she was rather surprised to find a young lady who
seemed to want to have a conversation with her on the street car.
The young lady was Jane Smith, who worked in an office just about
two blocks from where Betty worked. Jane had just moved to that part of
the city, and of course now she looked for a new friend. Jane thought per-
haps Betty would be a good one. Betty was beautiful, attractive, and re-
fined in manners, so Jane thought that she would make a good friend.
The girls went to and from work every day together, after their first
meeting. The girls became good friends, and one day just as Betty was
getting off the street car, Jane said, "I am going to have a. party in a couple
of weeks. Don't be surprised if you get an invitation."
These words kept rolling around in Betty's mind, because she wished
that she would get an invitation to the party. Betty had never gone to
parties very much, as she didn't have any friends till she met Jane.
One day as Betty returned from work, she noticed that several letters
were in the mail for her, and to Betty's amazement there was an invitation
to the party.
Betty said to herself, "Well, I'm going to get a new dress, new slip-
pers, a.nd other things, so that I shall look halfway respectful to others."
On the next day Betty was busy shopping for the party. She had
saved quite a bit of her money and now she had plenty to spend for her
Betty went to the party that night. She had never gone to very
many, so she was rather surprised to find the house decorated as it was.
The house was decorated with lots of flowers and crepe paper that har-

R GCe?J's 1BeIIutn Shoes
Ted was a large, young man of the Western type. But he was unusual
in having very small feet. He was a member of Troop 10 and had the small-
est feet in the Troop. However he was one of the most popular young
men in the Troop and was liked by everyone.
He received a new pair of shoes on the day that he had to ride over
to the Rolling R Ranch on an errand. He discarded the old ones and put
on the new ones because he knew he would meet a certain young lady who
always examined his uniform in detail and commented freely on it. The
shoes were gaudy yellow things that stood out as if conscious of this in-
The country was beautiful, with the sun shining brightly from the
clear blue sky above. White mountain tops shone in the distance, and in
the opposite direction the green prairie stretched on to the horizon. The
silvery Santa. Cruz wound its way through the vast stretch of land. Here
and there bushes and groves of cottonwoods dotted the land along the
river. However, new shoes are new shoes, and need a gradual acquaintance
with the foot to promote good feeling. By the time Ted reached the Santa
Cruz, his feet were aching terribly. So he decided to ,dismount beneath a
cottonwood and remove his shoes and stockings. Then he went down to
the river to soak his feet and to give his horse a drink of water.
When he returned to the cottonwood, his shoes and stockings were
gone. He began to look around among the other trees for them, but could
not find them. The sand was hot for his bare feet, and walking around
was not very comfortable. After an unsuccessful search, he started back
to the tree where he had left his horse. To his utter amazement his horse
was gone. "Must be the heat has affected me," he said to himself.
But upon reaching the place he found that his horse was really gone.
This made him angry and he started out, with his gun out of his holster,
to look for tracks of the thief. It was indeed an unusual situation. Here
he was stranded on the plain without shoes and stockings and without a
horse with which to travel. However, he walked down along the bank of
the stream. Since there were a great number of bushes and trees along
the river, it was possible that the thief had gone upstream and then over
With this in mind he went among the bushes and found some tracks
which he knew were the ones he was looking for. But after following
them a ways, they led down in the stream and he was as much in the dark
as before. Thinking that the thief might have crossed the river, which
was very small at this place and could hardly be called more than a stream
he crossed over and began searching in the bushes on that side.
It was not long before he heard a low moan somewhere in the bushes.
Looking a little further he found a horse exhausted and foamy with sweat,
which indicated that it had been ridden until it just dropped over. It was
now plain to Ted that the thief had left the exhausted horse and had taken
his. He did not know what to do, so he walked on a ways but decided that
since the horse was in such agony and misery it would be better to make
an end of him. Suiting action to his thoughts he went back and shot the
horse. Almost immediately after the shot there was a great sound of
galloping horses and before he hardly knew it, he was covered by half a
dozen black muzzles. After his first gasp of fear and amazement Ted
noted that they were White men, at least, but were by no means friendly.
"What do you know!" cried the leader. "A white man, and a soldier
"Sure made good work of your horse, Bill," said another. "Rode him
out and then killed him."
"Wait a minute," said Ted. 'Tm no horse thief. The man that owned
this horse stole mine and finding this horse in such misery I killed him."
"Say, there is something wrong herej' said the leader. "This is not
your saddle is it, Bill?"
"No, but he might have changed it," answered Bill, unconvinced.
"Keep it up! Waste time and let him get away!" retorted Ted bit-
terly. "He changed saddles and now he's beat it."
About this time they noticed Ted's bare feet, which caused great
Ted appealed to the leader. "Say, let me tell you how it happened,
will you ?"
"All right, go ahead."
Thereupon Ted related his story of losing his shoes and horse.
"Why didn't you tell that in the first place," said the leader unreason-
ably. "The kid's telling it straight," he said impatiently to his followers.
"Come on, or Mike will be across the border in a short while."
Horses were gathered. The riders were off.
A rush of wings sounded and Ted saw a great vulture against the sky.
It had scented the dead horse. Ted left the place and started upstream.
Upon coming out of the willows he was brought to a standstill. A horse
and rider had come around the upper bend of the river. There was no
mistaking the animal. It was Ted's horse.
A wave of admiration swept over Ted for the cleverness of the horse
thief. He had doubled back on his track. As he approached, the horseman
was using his senses. Two more vultures had joined the first and were
sweeping in great circles above the dead horse. The horseman stopped
and gazed at the great birds. If they settled to earth, there was no dangerg
Pq s ty gh: T
if they stayed a.loft it would either be because the feast was not ready or
that man was near. Ted decided to remain motionless and wait. The
minutes passed-hours they seemed to Ted, until at last the vultures set-
tled down to earth.
Ted glanced at the horseman and saw that he was coming on toward
his hiding place. He could discern no weapon on the approaching rider,
but noted that he was exceedingly sturdy. Furthermore his feet were
encased in Ted's bright yellow shoes. As the rider came along, his
shoulders were on a level with the bank and with Ted. Ted saw the huge
sombrero marching toward him and heard the soft thud of horse's hoofs
in the sand. Now was the time. Ted took several running steps and
launched out into space.
The horse thief fought desperately, but the sudden attack took the
heart out of him. In a few moments Ted had overpowered him and had
An hour later the band of horsemen returned and were open-eyed

Character is a structure which everyone is unconsciously building by
words, actions, thoughts, and deeds. If each moment We are careful to
build our lives with noble, upright and pure deeds, when the moments have
become years we will have erected a beautiful edifice that will always en-
dure to our praise. Likewise, one mean, dishonest, or discourteous word or
action will leave a, mark on our character that is likely to remain forever.
It can be erased only at a very high cost. It is extremely important, there-
fore, that much emphasis be placed upon the value of character so that in
later years the past will be a beautiful dream rather tha.n a tormenting
and regrettable memory.
Truthfulness is one of the foremost principles toward forming a good
chara.cter and greatness. No man has ever been too honest. Everyone
admires the person who always proclaims truth in his words and actions.
Too many of us find pleasure in using exaggeration or small particles of
dishonesty. Frequently this becomes a habit.
One desiring a noble character must bestow due respect upon his
parents and friends. He must defend himself courageously, he must gra-
Y Y - Page Seventy-'n1"rL
ciously receive criticisms and in turn, should be very careful in criticising
or making any unkind or destructive remarks.
With respect comes kindness. A kind word and a pleasant tone of
voice are gifts which are very easy to give and are worth much more than
money. We should be liberal with them. We can write our names with
kindness on the hearts of persons, and we will never be forgotten. No one
can resist continued kindness. Never put off a deed of kindness: perform
it right away rather than a. day too late. We have seen some noble na-
tures whose very presence carries sunshine with them wherever they go.
How much such a face enlivens every other face it greets! A smile is like
radiant sunshine after a rainy day: it brightens the world. We have
learned that the flower is made by the sunshine, not by the cloud. Smiles
and kindness are like roses: they scatter sweetness on everything about
One's manners and sportsmanship help in determining chara.cter.
Good manners are always in order and clean sportsmanship is honored
and encouraged everywhere. A good sport never really loses.
One with a noble character takes adva.ntage of all available oppor-
tunities through which he my endeavor to help someone or make himself
more noble. If he should fail in an attempt, he does not lament about his
loss but begins again with more courage and a greater aim to accomplish
something worthwhile. Although he may have few opportunities, the
small things that he does are well done. If he receives much fame and
honor, he will not beoome haughty and wear a robe of pride, he will share
his happiness tif it may be called suchj with his friends, and consider
himself the same small being that had been fortunate enough to gain
treasured friendships in previous years.
Persons with character containing the above qualities, are to be found
in almost all parts of the earth, but too frequently they are not realized
and appreciated. When you meet such a person, he is as an inspiration
to you and can never be forgotten. The thought and memory of him will
make difficulties seem pleasures. His noble deeds, words, and actions will
linger with us always and we know that all the Wealth in the world could
not take such a priceless friendship from you.
We, too, are being judged every day by our words, actions, deeds, and
thoughts. Our character should be such that we are truly worthy of the
greatest possession man can obtain-the possession of friendship.

Regardless of long hours of toil,
We've had some time for fun,
Our parties have been of the kind
That interest everyone.
The gym was where we held the first,
Such eats! and then, what's more,
Our baby faces on the screen
From those old days of yore.
Then, since we were athletic,
We had a picnic in the park,
After playing games, and eating,
We adjourned before 'twas dark.
As Sophs, we wanted something different,
So to Goshen We did go,
At Blosser's park we went a-skating,
Did someone fall 'Z Well, we don't know.
Then, when to Juniors We did rise,
The Seniors told us this:
"Be on the scene on Hallowe'en."
Of course, We did not miss.
Reception next came to our list
And then, as ne'er before,
We entertained the Senior Class
And the Faculty, what's more.
Twice we went to Blosser's park
As the Junior sea we did sprang
And tho' we're stately Seniors now,
We're hoping to go again.
If you don't like the style of this,
Don't cast it on some shelf,
Just leaf on to another page,
And there amuse yourself.
At a certain time every year, Juniors begin to carry mysterious look-
ing packages, and the Seniors begin to wear knowing expressions and say
with a wink, "You can't put anything over on us. We know everything
you're doing." But when the long looked for time actually arrives, the
real thing far exceeds their expectations. Naturally the Juniors wish to
keep everything a secret, but since the Reception will be over by the time
this is printed, they have permitted us to print the program and menu.
The program will be as follows: Welcome-Newell Troup, Response-Les-
ter McCuen, A warning-Wilma Stose, Chorus-Girls, Sturdiness-Max-
well Clouse, Girls Trio, Thrift-Gwendolyn Richmond, Reading-Robert

follows: Salted nuts, olives, fruit cocktail, creamed chicken, gravy, peas,
mashed potatoes, fluffy salad, jelly, hot rolls, butter, angel food cake, ice
cream and coffee.

The High School Hallowe'en Party was held in the gym on the night
before the day after. The guests received a fine reception at the hands of
a committee appointed by the student council. The guests assembled in
the gym and amused themselves by trying to find out who every one else
was, and at the same time concealing their own identity. Meanwhile, Miss
Newby, assisted by Miss Smith, was telling the fortunes of the guests at
the cost of four cents per fortune, regardless of whether the fortune was
good or bad.
Prizes were awarded for the best and queerest dressed. After this,
the different classes and clubs of the High School gave plays and stunts.
We were then served with apples, doughnuts, and cider, much to the pleas-
ure of all.
jllileoano botietp Banquet
The Medano Society thought the year would be incomplete without a
banquet. We had heard that the girls in the Advance Domestic Science
class were good cooks, so we arranged with them to serve us a two-course
luncheon in the Domestic Science room on Wednesday, March 27.
The color scheme carried out in the decorations was purple and white,
the place cards being in the shape of rabbits.

The toastmaster, Carlin Felter, had an interesting program arranged
with Easter as the theme. A reading was given by Isobel Geyer, talks on
various Easter subjects were given by Ira Phillips, Howard Clouse, Gwen-
dolyn Richmond, Evelyn Yarian, and Marjorie Walters, Blanche Jervis
and Katheryn Knobel furnished piano and violin music. Impromptu
speeches, which we enjoyed very much, were given by our invited guests,
Mr. Abell, Mr. Yoder, and Miss Iifert.
The Shorthand Class, after finishing a word-sign contest in which Launa
Beechley and Violet Pippinger were captains, were entertained by the los-
ing side at the home of Hilda Phillips. The invitations and place cards
were written in shorthand. A two-course luncheon was served, after
which games were played. Mr. Quinn gave a short talk during the luncheon.
latin Qlluh Banquet
Monday evening, March 25, the Latin Club held a Roman banquet in
the Domestic Science dining-room.
The tables were decorated with artificial iris and with some molded
copies of parts of the Roman Forum.
A three-course dinner, consisting wholly of food prepared and served
in Roman style, was served by Freshman girls and boys dressed as Roman
slaves. A program was given between courses.
The banquet was attended by twenty-eight members .of the Latin Club
and their advisor, Miss Newby. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Abell, Miss
Smith, and Miss Wright.

Girl ilieserhe Gypsy Banquet
In the fall, the Girl Reserves entertained the Elkhart Girl Reserves
in the Domestic Science room with a banquet and peppy program. The
girls who waited on the tables were dressed as gypsies. After the ban-
quet the girls went to the gymnasium and there gathered around a sup-
posed-to-be campfire as in a gypsy camp, and sang Girl Reserves' songs
and many .others. Miss Smith gave a reading. The two clubs enjoyed
their association together and everyone made at least one or two new
friendships for which they may cherish the memory of their happy time

Two Girl Reserve Ceremonials were held this year. The first one,
when new members were taken in, was held last fall, in the gym. After
the beautiful candle-light service, the girls were taken to the Domestic
Science room where all kinds of good things to eat awaited.
The other ceremonial, when the new officers were installed, was held
this spring at the Presbyterian church. After the bountiful pot-luck sup-
per, the new officers were installed. A short program was then given,
which consisted of a pantomine, "Bluebeard's Seven Wives" readings by
Gwendolyn Richmond and Wilma Stose, and a piano solo by Virginia

All the former G. R. and Hi-Y Banquets had been such a success that
we had a hard time thinking what kind of a banquet we could have this
year that would outshine its predecessors. At last some one thought of
having a snow frolic, and this idea was carried out. The room was decor-
ated so as to carry out the idea, with Christmas trees, covered with icicles,
snow flakes, etc., sprinkled around the room. The tables, likewise carried
out the idea. During a dinner that would have satisfied the best of epi-
cures, we sang many of our favorite songs and after the banquet, were re-
galed with a program, short but sweet. Maxwell Clouse gave a short talk
on Icicles, Wanda Minard on Snowflakes, and Carlyle Mullett on Snowmen.
Miss Smith gave us a reading, Virginia Coppes played a piano solo and a
song was sung by Wilma Abell, Helen Frederick and Miss Smith. Every-
one said this was one of the nicest banquets that the Girl Reserves and
Hi-Y have held together-perhaps because they got out early.

One evening after school in May, 1928, the members of the Hi-Y Club
enjoyed a treasure hunt which led them to Wawasee Lake. At four o'clock,
two groups of Hi-Y boys started to follow two different trails which had
been made by the sponsor and several of the boys. Both routes led to
the same destination and both covered the same distance. There was
much rivalry between the groups to see which could find their instructions
and be first to get to the end of the trail where a grand prize awaited them.
Carlyle Yarian succeeded in finding the prize, which was a necktie and a
pair of sox. Wood was gathered and a large bon-fire lightedg we were then
served with rolls, weiners, bananas, cookies, pickles and marshmallows.
After all the food was consumed, a game of indoor base ball was started.
After many arguments and much heated discussion with the umpire, CMr.
Quinny the game was called on account of darkness. About seven-thirty
every one started home and according to all reports every one had a
mighty fine time.
Let it never be said that the Sophomores are not a brave bunch, for
they held a skating party at Blossers' Park, when it looked more like
"Santa Claus" was coming, than "Ol' Man Sunshine." 'Tis said that cer-
tain Sohpomores seemed to like the floor much better from a sitting pos-
ture than a standing one. If anyone got hungry, there was plenty .of ham
sandwiches with which they could assuage their appetites. All of the
Sophomores looked as lively as ever the next day, so evidently no ill re-
sults came from unlimited physical and digestive exercise.

KX Q 'x
The foundation of successful athletics in a high school is a good
physical training program. Fortunately for Nappanee, something has
been done for all boys and many of the girls above the fourth grade
during the past five years. Our physical training program needs to be
enlarged, however, during the present school year our gymnasium has
been in use 11-15 of the school day or school week and almost every eve-
ning during the week. The average patron or citizen thinks of a gym-
nasium being used for basketball teams only and that not during school
hours, but after school hours. It is true that all team drill is outside
school hours, but the physical training program is part of the regular
school program the same as English, history, or mathematics. Physical
training and health are now both required subjects in high school. Nap-
panee with her small gymnasium will be handicapped in attempting to
teach physical training to all high school pupils. Let us hope better
quarters will soon be available.
From a basketball viewpoint, the secretary of the I. H. S. A. A. has
come in for a great deal of criticism, but our secretary needs our sup-
port, not our criticism. When two teams along with their fans can
hardly play a game under two expert officials without faultfinding, the
question naturally arises how any man could manage eight hundred
teams and seven hundred thousand fans without criticism. Ironclad
rules must be made and enforced. This wonderful state organization
has done much for physical training, athletics and sportsmanship in
Indiana. It should be given credit for the requirement that every boy
and girl is entitled to a good course in physical training while in high
Locally, we have had five good years. Nappanee is the smallest
school in the Northern Conference, and yet is never found in the cellar
or near the cellar, despite the fact that we have no track at all and the
smallest gymnasium in the Conference. Our city is well known through-
out the Conference and most of the state as a basketball town, and words
of commendation are heard about our boys wherever they are known.
This brings us to sportsmanship. Every boy and girl and every
citizen is solicited and urged to make sportsmanship our highest goal.
It is better to lose than to win on any basis but the best sportsmanship.
It is easy to shout and sing when teams are winning, but a good team
needs your support when losing much more than when winning. The
Napanet Staff wish for our school and teams victory, but we wish also
that sportsmanship may ever be uppermost in the minds of our school

Basket ba,ll seasons may come and go and in the course of a short
time recollection of many thrills and anxious moments during the sea-
son's performance soon fade into the realm of forgotten experiences.
Granting that it is a human characteristic to forget, still there are many
outstanding experiences in the course of events that leave their scar for-
ever within the memory of the human mind. I dare say that there are
certain features of the Nappanee high school 1929 basket ball season
that will remain forever as treasured memories in the hearts of the many
Taking an inventory of the basket ball events, who is it that can for-
get that this was the first real test of Nappanee's basketball team as a
member of the N. I. H. S. C.?g that a team dwarfed in size, practically in-
experienced, handicapped by the disadvantages of a small gymnasium
which necessitated the playing of every game upon a foreign floor, repre-
senting the smallest city in the conference and sharing the cellar position
with Mishawaka, Elkhart and Michigan City, rallied to win six of its re-
maining conference games on the h.ome stretch of the championship race,
which resulted in placing the team in a triple tie with LaPorte and Ham-
mond for second division honors.
Who is it that can forget the thrilling moment in that overtime game
at Mishawaka when "Ike" Phillips stepped to the foul line and succeeded
in putting his team in the lead and incidentally giving Nappanee its first
Then .on the following night the boys journeyed to Gary to play Hor-
ace Mann, undoubtedly the strongest team in Northern Indiana and one
of the sixteen teams to play in the finals at Indianapolis. Who is it that
can forget the happy experience of such joy and surprise when they
heard the news announced over the telephone that Horace Mann was
forced to play an overtime to beat the "Scrapping little Naps ?"
Who is it that can forget the last half comeback at Elkhart to win 39
to 36 after trailing at the half 14 to 21? And then only a week later these
same two teams met again before a capacity crowd. Elkhart, inspired
by a brilliant victory over Valparaiso the night before and the return of
Peterson to bolster the line-up was heavily the favorite. Who is it that
can forget the complete, decisive and almost unexpected victory 56 to 20
in favor of Nappanee? One cannot deny that Nappanee displayed its
best exhibition of basket shooting and skill in handling the ball during

The biggest surprise of the season, I believe, was our victory over
Emerson of Gary. This victory together with the fine showing made
against Horace Mann gained respect and admiration for the little Nap-
panee team in the hearts of the Calumet fans and I am positive that when
the name Nappanee is recalled in Gary, basketball fans will not forget to
associate with it the name of Lehman, whose uncanny basket shooting
was unquestionably the cause of Emerson's downfall.
That final game-long will it linger in the minds of the many specta-
tors who witnessed the desperate struggle between Nappanee and Goshen
in the feature game of the sectional tournament at Elkhart. Who can
forget it? Such excitement. Goshen favored to win-three-fourths of
the spectators in sympathy with Nappanee-score at the half 21 to 11 in
favor of Goshen-Nappanee's desperate struggle in the second half and
shower of baskets that brought them within two points of victory, only
to be let down by the final crack of the timer's pistol, 26 to 28. It was a
great game. How can any one ever forget it?
