Before passing forever from the halls of Nappanee High School the
class of 1938 wishes to pause to pay tribute to, and to acknowledge our debts
to the faculty of this school. We stop in the hurry and hustle, the mad rush
of our last year in school and submit our vote of thanks to them.
Throughout our four-year sojourn through high school they have given
of the best of their talents to us that we might have a better education, that
we might learn to recognize, enjoy, and practise the better things in life.
lf we, the members of this class of 1938, fail in these points we will concede
that we, ourselves, are at fault.
True, it is their life's work, it is their job to teach, but we feel that here
at Nappanee High School we have as teachers men and women who are not
only fitted in a technical way to teach, who are not only efficient instructors
in mathematics, science, music, and the various other curricula, but who im-
part something else besides these cardinal points. We are able to find that
intimate association with the members of the faculty which larger schools
cannot do. Each member of the faculty has left his personality indelibly
stamped upon some class member, and in after years, when faced by a
problem, we will think back and consider how this or that teacher would
have faced and solved it.
We are proud of our teachers and the class of 1938 salutes you

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
In the fall of 1935 seventy-eight self conscious students entered the
mysterious realm of high school as freshmen. The honors of president, vice
president, secretary-treasurer, and Student Council Members were given to
Carlyle Frederick, Ruby Calbeck, Catherine Mullett, Gwendolyn McCormick
and Tilson King respectively. The usual skating party was held in November.
In 1936, we returned for more knocks and more fun. Our leaders
were president, Glen Stillsong vice president, Arthur Sharp, secretary-treas-
urer, Catherine Mullett, and Student Councillors, Tilson King, Carlyle
Moore, and Martha Wagner. Mr. Foulke and Miss Hoover guided us. The
annual skating party was held February 23. All of us yelled ourselves
hoarse at basketball games, because two of our members, Tilson King and
Robert Rensberger, were on the varsity squad. Time rolled around until
Junior-Senior reception night came. In the kitchen of the church eight boys
and eight girls anxiously awaited a sign. At the signal, they burst forth.
They were the nervous Sophomore waitresses and waiters. We did very well,
but fplease don't let anyone knowj Tilson King spilled pie on Mr. Rooseis
In 1937 there were only 60 of us left. We assumed new responsibilities
under the guidance of Miss Blank and Mr. Byers. A Weiner roast at Geyer's
Dam was held October 15, with a record attendance of fifty-five. We are
proud to have five members on the varsity team. They are Tilson King, Bob
Rensberger, Glen Stillson, James Green and George Price. Donivan Hall
was chosen to represent our district at the State Hi-Y Conference. Although
it is only February, we are planning for the Junior-Senior reception. It
will be hard to rival the reception of last year, but we are sure we shall

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
ln the fall of l936 we, as Freshmen entered Nappanec High School.
The taunts and laughter of the upperclassmen soon subsided when they were
completely ignored by the Freshmen who were determined to allow nothing
to hinder their progress.
During the year two skating parties were held at the skating rink under
the supervision of our sponsors, Miss Shively and Mr. Dickey.
Time marches on! On September 13, 1937, sixty-six dignified Sopho-
mores strutted proudly down the aisles of the assembly with an attitude of
superiority, for we were starting on the second lap of our high school career,
and felt that we now occupied a place of importance in Nappanee High
School. Mr. Robbins and Miss Shively served as sponsors and contributed
much toward our successful year.
DeVon Hall was selected president, David Stalnaker, vice president,
and Mary Nola Roose, who has done an excellent job of handling our finan-
cial alfairs, was retained as secretary-treasurer. Frederick Pletcher, David
Coppes, and Robert Arnott were chosen to represent us in the Student
Our class party was held in November at the skating rink.
lVe have been well represented in the various school activities with two
members composing the affirmative debate team, a great number in the band,
and many in the Girl Reserves, Hi-Y and G. A. A.
As the year draws to a close we can look back with pleasant memories
of the success and pleasure we have enjoyed as Sophomores and we are look-
ing forward to even greater success in the future. t Q

the good old N. H. S. Airline, the destination being graduation from our
We chose Richard Pippen as our senior pilot to lead us through the first
stretch of high school, Robert Stump as our assistant pilot and steward. Our
money-holder remained the same, Carolyn Gentzhorn.
We stopped off at Ceyer's Dam one October evening to have a Weiner
roast and marshmallow bake. After this stop we continued on our way.
Our chief pilot says we have another stop in view. We are proud to
have four passengers on the second team in basketball. Four of our girls
are librarians and a number of our girls belong to G. A. A. and the Jr.
Girl Reserves. Thirteen passengers belong to the band, and some to the Clee
Part of our honor for this first trip belongs to Miss Kivett and Mr. Best,
All aboard! We, the class of 741 are off for three more years of our
trip before arriving at our destination.

EIGHTH GRADE HISTORY
Early in September, in the year 1936, fifty-eight young, budding,
geniuses came from near and far to enroll as members of the seventh grade.
As was to be expected we had a hard time keeping out of the wrong room.
After a rough initiation, which we happily survived, we were finally
able to settle down and enjoy ourselves. In November of this year we had
a united skating party and in spite of the few bumps it went over, a big
We had several members on the Junior High basketball team which
won all but one gameg also we were well represented on the track team.
September soon rolled around again and now we were the more digni-
fied eighth graders, who could go about their duties with greater confidence
than they could in the previous year.
Our activities of this year broadened out considerably and we placed
several members in the band and on the safety patrol. We also held a

Although there have been many new things to learn, and in spite of the

have made a good beginning in making our class a credit to the school.

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
To the student with a keen, and alert and wholesome attitude, a course
in Nappanee High School means much more than just preparing the studies
required of him by the state board of education. It means more than the
usual routine of classes from day to day which was the condition existing in
former years. Today the student may choose one or more organizations and
activities in which he may participate.
The value of these extra curricular activities to the student is inesti-
mable. It is certain that they create, among other things, leadership. It
is in these additional activities that certain pupils become recognized as lead-
ers, students who will take and shoulder responsibilities. Also the extra
curricular program uncovers talent in various ways. Were it not for the
band or glee club, for instance, musical talent would be inhibited and go un-
discovered. They contribute to correct mannerisms and Christian character,
and develop good social relations as we fellowship together in inter-club so-
cial functions. It is through these activities that we are able to put into pracf
tise the philosophy of life as taught us by our faculty, for where, in the regu-
lar school curriculum, can we learn to match wits as we can on the tennis
court or on the debate team? How better can we learn to develop poise,
grace, and culture than by practising them in our various activities?
Requiring students to have a specified number of extra curricular points
before he may graduate is a relatively new idea, but it is hoped that through
this medium more students will be encouraged to take part in school
To those students who have given of their best in time and talent, and
who have assumed their full share of responsibility, is due the present high
level in every extra curricular activity.

All things must eventually come to an end, but we members of the staff have often
wondered if the work on this thirteenth volume of the Napanet would ever be finished.
However, at last, after months of denying ourselves, after months of hard work we have
completed what is undoubtedly the greatest task our class has yet undertaken.
Not all of the work has been fung neither has all of it been drudgery, but we
gain our compensation for our work with the satisfaction gained from the knowledge
that we have done our best.
We oHer this book to you for your approval with every conhdence that it will sat-
isfy your most exacting requirements.

As the curtains draw to a close for another year of band work, we con-
sider ourselves very fortunate in being one of the members and of having
such a successful year.
During the year there have been many accomplishments achieved. A
set of tympani and a bell lyra have been added to the instrumentation of the
band and as the highlight of the year, beautiful new uniforms were pur-
chased in time for the concert and contest.
Through the co-operation and support of the people of the city, school
officials, Civic Clubs, by having bake sales, giving concerts, etc., we have seen
what has been accomplished.
At the district contest, held at Goshen, luck was again with us and we
placed in first division of the Class B schools, thus making us eligible for
the state contest which was held at Huntington.
Several soloists in Junior High and Senior High placed in first division
along with our Brass Quartette.
Although we have been successful in many ways, we realize that only
under the direction of Mr. Busche did we attain with such pleasure these
We are wishing the band and its conductor, the best of luck and musi-
cianship in the state band contest in the years following.

This year an A Cappella Choir was formed as a part of the work of the Mixed
Chorus. To be in the Choir, you have to pass a rigid voice test given by our director,
Miss Lantz, which only select voices can pass. There are only twenty-five of the forty
members of the Chorus in the A Cappella Choir.
Several programs were given by the Mixed Chorus among which were the spring'
and fall concerts, the program over WTRC, the Baccalaureate and Commencement pro-
grams, and several programs in the assembly. Several of our members were sent to
sing in the combined chorus at the North Central Indiana Teachers' Association.
Under the capable direction of Miss Lantz, and with the help of our talented ac-
companist, Rosemary Roose, the club has been a great success and much pleasure has
been derived, in addition to the knowledge gained, from our hard hours of study.

The Nappanee Hi-Y is an active organization consisting of thirty-five members,
each striving to better the conditions of his school and community. T-his organiza-
tion is afliliated with the state Y. M. C. A. through other local organizations-.
The purpose of the Hi-Y is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school
and community a high standard of Christian character based on clean living, clean
sports, clean speech, and clean scholarship.
The meetings are held bi-weekly during the school year. At these meetings, aft-
er the business. session, a program arranged by the vice president is presented. Other
activities of the club are mostly social, such as the annual Father-and-Son Banquet.
To become a member of the Hi-Y you must be approved by the advisory board.
After "due" initiations, you become a full-fledged member of a worthwhile organization.

In 1925 the Elkhart Y. W. C. A. organized a Girl Reserve Club here with Miss
Hazel Dickey as sponsory Miss Dorothy Smith was her successor and she in turn was
succeeded by Mrs. Coppes. Mrs. Swihart was the sponsor in 1936 and Miss Lantz and
Miss Kivett are our present sponsors.
The club consists of Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors, and meetings are held every
two weeks on Tuesday morning.
The rough initiation was held October 14 at the school and the serious initiation
was held at the school October 25 with Mrs. U. J. Shively as guest speaker.
Several parties were held during the year and several joint parties with the Hi-Y
were enjoyed. Fifteen members and Miss Kivett attended the G. R. Confer-
ence on March 19 at the Elkhart Y. W. C. A.
The interest and co-operation of the club members and sponsors have made the club
an even greater success than ever before.

The club is made up of seventh-grade, eighth-grade, and freshman girls. It was
organized in 1925 by Mrs.. Georgia Miller Replogle as a branch of the Senior Girl
Reserves. Miss Shively is the present advisor.
On November 2, 1937 the new members were received into the club through the
Recognition Service and one evening during the same month they were given the
"rough" part of the initiation.
At Christmas, the Junior Girl Reserves together with the Senior Girl Reserves
purchased Christmas baskets.
Then on February 14, 1938, the girls had a combined potluck supper and valentine
party. Thirty-four members were present and all enjoyed the party immensely.
The bi-monthly meetings are usually given by the girls. Sometimes we have a
guest speaker. Marilyn Stahly, the chairman of the program committee, and Joan
Mellinger, our song leader, have done much to contribute to the success of our meetings.

The Student Council is a more or less democratic organization, as it allows the
students to help in framing school laws and codes.
This year's Student Council entertained the council from Wakarusa, and much of
the time at this meeting was spent in discussing the functions of each respective
In addition to its routine of making laws, regulations, etc., it maintains the Lost
and Found Department, which, as its name indicates, helps to locate articles which have
been lost, and return them to their owner.
An amendment passed this year states that a new member shall be elected each
year as follows: When a class enters the seventh grade they shall elect one mem-
ber, who shall be carried from year to year, and hence by the time they were seniors
they would have six members on the council.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY OF SECONDARY SCHOOLS
This is the third year for the National Honor Society of Secondary Schols in Nap-
panee High School. The Charter was granted to the Nappanee chapter March 25, 1936.
Membership in this organization is determined by the high school faculty, and is based
on character, scholarship, leadership, and service. The membership is limited to fifteen
per cent of the Senior class, and five per cent of the Juniors.
All the members of last year except Eldon Pippen and Mary Osborne were
lost by graduation. Last fall the membership was increased by the election of the fol-
lowing: James Miller, Donnabelle Farrington, and Doris Davidhizar. In January, 1938
it was again increased by the election of the following: Martha Chamberlin and
Marilyn Miller, Seniors, and Gwendolyn McCormick, Catherine Mullett, and Rosemary
Roose, Juniors. Thus, the entire membership is composed of seven Seniors, which is
fifteen per cent of their class, and three Juniors., which is five per cent of their class.
This year the organization took charge of the Concert given by the Indiana Uni-
versity Men's Glee Club. Although the members have not taken a very active part in
school activities as yet, they hope to do more in the future.

The Nappanee High School Debate Club completed its third year of debating under
the supervision of Kenneth Mitchell.
At the opening meeting seventeen members were present. Meetings were
held each Monday and Wednesday night after school in Mr. Mitchell's room.
In the first part of December Mr. Mitchell and eleven members of the club attended
the Eighth Annual High School Debate Conference held at Purdue University. Follow-
ing this trip several members dropped out.
Throughout the season practice debates were held at the following schools: Elk-
hart, Ft. Wayne, La Porte, and Central of South Bend, where the two teams met
several different schools in the state. Also several schools came here, including Riley
of South Bend, Warsaw, and Columbia City.
On February 5 and 12 the district conference tournaments were held at Wakarusa
and Goshen respectively. At Wakarusa we defeated both Goshen and Concord. At
Goshen we won over Jeiferson but lost to Wakarusa, which eliminated usfrom thie
tourney. Elkhart won first place, Nappanee and Wakarusa tied for second, and
Goshen and Middlebury tied for third. Others participating in thle tourney were
Concord and Jefferson.
The final debate teams consisted of:
Betty Phend Joy Pippen
Jack Byers Christine Frederick
Anna Culp served as alternate to the aiiirmative team.
The question debated throughout the season was, "Resolved, That Indiana should
adopt a system of unicameral legislation."

In the school library there are now approximately 2,300 books and twenty weekly
and monthly magazines available to the students, both of which cover various interests
including those of nature, athletics, science, religion, health, current events, and num-
In order to insure a fair chance for reference work to each student, books for
reference reading are placed on the reserve shelf to be used only one hour at a time
by any student.
The librarians, each who earn extra curricular points, are expected to be familiar
with the library and aid those who are not acquainted with it. Other duties include
checking in new magazines, keeping a record of all books taken out, cataloging books,
and collecting fines on over due books. The fine is one cent a day on general books
and five cents an hour on reserve books.
A new rule, requiring the student to prepare a written excuse before using the
library, has resulted in the eliminatin of the students who used the library only to
visit and loaf.
The librarians and their supervisor appreciate the fine spirit of cooperation shown
by the entire student body during the past year.

The Fi-Kem science club was organized in 1936, largely through the efforts of Mr.
Foulke and several students, to encourage and create an interest in chemistry, physics,
and other fields of science.
Last yea1"s members included Hobart Blosser, Gerald Mulletft, Burnett Martin,
Ernest Pletcher, Harvey Miller, Robert Sharp, Glenora Hall, and Eldon Pippen. To
become a member one must have, among other things, an average of "B" or above in
both grades and citizenship, and must have studied some science for at least one year.
Meetings are held bi-weekly between the hours of seven and ten in the science
room of the school building or at some members home. Programs are 'given by the
club members or some outside speaker is often invited to appear before the club.
The activities of this club have been somewhat limited because of the small
membership and other contributory factors, but it has taken several trips to points
of interest and this year's club has laid plans to visit the Field Museum at C-hicago.
Because of its high entrance requirements and because of the generosity of its
sponsor, Mr. Foulke, this club has been quite successful and thoroughly enjoyed by

The activities of the Future Farmers are not confined entirely to the school sea-
son. This summer, on August 28, a camping trip was held at Indian Hill. There were
about 12 members and guests present. We started on Saturday morning and returned
Sunday. The time was spent in fishing, swimming, playing ball, and archery.
Shortly after school began seven new members were accepted and initiated into
the Green Hand degree.
To enrich the treasury, the chapter decided to sell candy at noon, to students.
When the basketball season arrived, we organized a basketball team to give the
members an opportunity to participate in this sport.
A local corn husking contest was held and prizes were furnished by the Nappanee
'Business Men's Association. A representative of our chapter was sent to the district
A pest killing contest was held between New Paris and our chapter. We, the losers,
gave a party for them in the high school gym.
The annual Father and Son banquet was held on Tuesday night. March 15, 1938,
in the agriculture room of the new building. A pot-luck supper was followed by
several short talks, and motion pictures.
The chapter tested seed corn for the nearby farmers and themselves. The money,
above expenses, was placed in the treasury.

Miss Kivett discussed "Art in Home and Clothing," while Mr. Busche in his program
stressed the value of music in the home. "Old and New Kitchen Utensils," was inter-
esting as given by Mrs. Chas. Byers. Last, but far from least, was the fine display
of Spring fashions modeled by the girls under the direction of Mrs. Wayne Best.
The girls and the public heartily cooperated in a successful cookie and cake sale
for St. Valentine's Day.
The club this year has been a social and instructional aid to the girls and has
improved in many ways upon former yers.

On November 16 and 17, the Speech Class, under the direction of Kenneth Mitchell,
presented the three-act comedy "Bashful Bobby," which was a decided success. Robert
Downing, as his nickname indicates, was an extremely bashful high school graduate
who went from one extreme to the other when under a hypnotic spell cast by one of
his friends. The failure to bring 'Bob out of his trance led to many intriguing situa-
tions, but after Madame DuPont, a professional hypnotist, had brought him out of his
trance, Bob was able to strike a happy medium between his two extremes.

The patrol system has become a firmly established organization of Nappanee High
School since its inception some seven or eight years ago. During this period of time
it has done excellent work in safe-guarding the lives of the younger children as they
went to and from the school, as is quite stongly evidenced in the fact that not one
accident has occurred during the time they have been on duty.
Patrol members, chosen from members 'of the seventh and eighth grades, go on
duty at their respective posts each morning, noon, and evening.
Frederick Jensen is this year's supervisor of the patrol.
This organization deserves a vote of thanks for their splendid work and every one
should strive to cooperate with it to the fullest extent.

At peace with all both here and yon
Nor race or color might we shun,

To further peace that is begun.
Might life that brings each. setting sun
Bring every member of Coffs race

Farewell l Ule' school - l'nz ready to leave.
Now please don't feel hurt or even grieveg
There will he others here next year -
To talfe the place of your Seniors dear.
We've had our fun. if you can call it such,
fllthouglz it has not been very muchg
We appreciate what youhve tried to do.
But there are limits to most things, too.
When we were Freshmen and very green,
You clidn't want us heard or even seen,
But we did get a skating party out of youg
A nd that was all, until the year was through.
Then we were Sophornores and very smarty,
t find the same old story, no place for a party.
We were looking forward to the junior year -
When we, at least. could have some Reception cheer.
Hurrah! We were funiors and still you reign,
We tried hard to have fun, but it was all in vain.
Oh! We did have fun at the Reception we gave,
To the Seniors, in whose honor we did slave.
Now we are Seniors and our school days are o'er,
When Bacealaureates and Comrnencements come no more.
We'll envy the others who return in the fall-
For you are a good ole, school after all.

The graduating class of 1938 numbers forty-nine. There are twenty'
hve boys and twenty-four girls. While much smaller than the classes of
1936 and 1937, still this is the sixth largest class to graduate from N. H. S.
During tlfe past fourteen years, 315 boys and 336 girls have graduated from
N. ll. S. The Valedictorian has been a girl ten times, the Salutatorian has
been a girl nine times. Are girls brighter than boys, or do they work

born on April lst and one boy on Flag Day, June 14th. Two were born in
1918, nine in 1919, thirty-six in 1920, and two in 1921. One of the latter
completed her school work in llyg years, while the other started to rural
school at the age of 5 years and 6 months. The babies of the class are
Marilyn Miller and James Miller. Marilyn, the youngest is 16 years, 11
months and 14 days old today.
The average age of the boys is 18 years, 2 months, 12.84 days.
The average age of the girls is 18 years, 0 months, 27.42 days.
The average age of the girls is 13.42 days greater than last year, but
commencement comes 14 days later. P
The attendance of the class has not been as good as that of some former
classes. lt is not as good as the class of 1937. Their average attendance
was 97.47LZv. The average attendance for this class is 97.1273 The girls
missed an average of 4.48 days each year, while the boys missed an average
of 5.85 days each year. A total of 10151f2 days had been missed up to
April 6th - 585 1-3 days by the boys, 430 1-6 days by the girls. Those
who have missed less than five days during the four years are as follows:
Earl Michael, Eldon Pippen and Evelyn Warren perfect attendance, Eloise
Miller 1 2-3 days absence, Ruth Nicodemus 2 days, Glennis Cingerich and
Kathryn Stahly 4 1-6 days each.
Of the 49 graduates, one entered Nappanee Schools in 1924, five in
1925, twenty-six in 1926, seven during the past four years, and the other
ten attended rural schools until they came to Nappanee H. S. four years

H1-Y FATHER-AND-soN BANQLTET
The eighth annual Hi-Y Father-and-Son Banquet was held at the Evan-
gelical Church, November 23, 1937.
Following the dinner those present were entertained by a vocal solo by
Carlyle Frederick, and selections by the brass quartette composed of Jack
Byers, George Reher, Harold Holoway, and Fred Pletcher. The Rev. J.
Floyd Seelig delivered the main address.
The rough initiation was held in the gym on October 144. After a rather
spooky trip through the gym, the new members were dismissed with instruc-
tions as to what to do the next day, and, I might add, they had to do plenty!
The serious initiation was held several weeks later with Mrs. U. J. Shively
as the guest speaker. A St. Patrick's Day Party was held on March 18.
After a potluck supper, cootie was played with several prizes being awarded.
Also, about Hfteen members attended the C. R. Conference at the Elkhart
Y. W. C. A., on March 19. As one of the last events of the season, the
girls entertained their mothers at an honorary party for Mother's Day.
FUTURE FARMERS FATHER-AND-SON BANQUET
On Tuesday, March 15, the members of the Future Farmers entertained
their fathers at a banquet in their honor. Moving pictures were shown after
the banquet, entitled MUnc1e Tomis Cabin." An open forum was then held,
followed by several talks by Mr. Roose, honorary members, and several of
the fathers. Loyal Burkholder, the president of the club, also contributed
to the program by giving a talk on the F. F. A. work.
The crowning event of the yearls social functions was the annual Junior-
Senior Banquet, on May 20, 1938, at the Methodist Church. After the

THE NAPANET 1933
School Athletics were organized to teach skill in the participating of
sports and learning to appreciate the value of a co-operative attitude and
The first several months of the athletic calendar are devoted to the play-
ing of tennis matches and baseball games. The conference games of the
schedule are arranged by the Northern Indiana High School Athletic Asso-
ciation of which Nappanee High School is a member.
As winter approaches and sports are forced indoors, interest naturally
turns to basketball. This game was first played in the school in l9l2 when
Mr. Galen Roose, Mr. Harvey Frederick and Mr. Samuel Sharp were among
the team members. The first playing floor was what is now known as the
Stuckman skating rink, but play was later changed to the new high school
gymnasium, and finally to the Community Building.
Baseball is played in the spring as well as in the fall and track is added
to the list of activities.
Football was first played about 1906 and l907g golf was played for
one year, but both of these are eliminated from our present schedule of
The Girls' Athletic Association affords an opportunity for girls in the
line of physical development, by the playing of such games as, indoor base-
ball, basketball, hikes, etc.
Noon basketball is played by both girls and boys. This serves as an
outlet for those boys who could not qualify for varsity, freshmen or junior
The spirit of good sportsmanship has been prevalent among the Nap-
panee players and fans. We are proud to say that although Nappanee teams
have played hard, they have played a clean, fair game.

THE NAPANET 1933
Nappaniee 26 Goshen 27
The old Redskin-Bulldog rivalry was renewed in a hercely contested
game at the Goshen High School gymnasium. After a good first quarter for
the Bulldogs, the Redskins settled down and soon narrowed the margin to
practically nothing. From this point to about the end of the game the Naps
trailed by several points but staged a remarkable rally to send the game in-
to an overtime. Nappanee lost the game in the overtime and also lost its
tenth game of the season.
Nappanee 33 Elkhart 35
On January 28 the Nappanee Community Building was crowded to
capacity to see the battle waged between the Nappanee Bulldogs and the rival
Elkhart Blue Blazers. ln the preliminary game between the Nappanee Pups
and the Elkhart Shortfellows, the Pups came out on the short end of the
score. This was a tense and exciting game with only one point difference.
The Bulldog and Blazer teams were greeted, as they came onto the floor,
by mingled boos and cheers. Both teams played inspired ball and the lead
changed hands many times. ln the closing minutes of the game Elkhart
scored to win by a two point margin. 4
After the game was over, the over enthusiastic fans vent their feelings
in a slugging fiesta which was settled later and again established a friendly
relation between the two schools.
On March 3, 4, and 5 the teams of Elkhart County competed in the an-
nual sectional basketball tournament which was held at Goshen. Thursday
evening the Bulldogs advanced to the quarter finals but were put out then by
the Goshen Redskins. The Redskins were then beaten by Wakarusa who met
Elkhart in the finals. Both Wakarusa and Elkhart brought forth some un-
canny basket shooting. lt was a very thrilling game and the plucky Waky
Indians were finally downed.

vwvvvwvvvvv THE NAPANET 1938
Tennis first became a part of the Nappanee High School sports program
in l9I23. lt was in the Fall of this year that the enthusiasts of this splendid
game strode forth to brandish their rackets in the faces of the future Bill
Tildens of opposing schools. Our tennis teams have not been very success-
ful in the past due to lack of enthusiasm and intelligent practice on the part
of the participants, and Nappanee has yet to win a conference title in this
sport, although she came quite close this year, winning six out of eight
of her matches.
To give the players a visible reward for their efforts, and to induce
more to engage in this sport, a sweater is given to the player who wins two-
thirds of his singles matchesg also girls may win points in tennis and thereby
earn a letter.
The student of the game will find that it is a highly scientific one and
new situations constantly present themselves to be mastered by the player.
He may be forced to serve, lob, volley, and smash in the space of one point,
and if he would defeat his opponent he must employ strategy and tune his
wits to a high degree.
One of the beauties of the game is that it is almost as well suited for
women as it is for men, and hence both can gain the many benefits to be de-
rived from participation in the same. lt takes you out of doors, and compels
you to breathe deeply of fresh, clean air which has been filtered by the rays
of the sun. lt provides a means of healthful relaxation and gives one the
bodily exercise so essential to the person who could possess a vibrant, glow-
ing health. lt improves one's sense of timing and co-ordination and hence
contributes to grace and poise.
ln future years we hope to see more students attracted by tennis, for the
friendly 'fpingn of a tautly strung racket, and the satisfaction of a well-
placed shot, hold a thrill not to be found elsewhere.

This marks g'Dutch" Schuler's tenth year as coach of the Nappanee
High School basketball and baseball teams. During these years he has
guided the Nappanee teams, he has made a splendid record for himself and
for the school. Not all of his teams were always winning teams but he em-
phasized clean play and proper attitude of players more than the mere win-
ning of a ball game. We can be proud that we have as a coach a person who
instills into his players these vital points of sportsmanship. We of the
graduating class sincerely extend our best wishes for still greater success.
The job of a student manager requires much time and labor. His job
includes being at practices and games, polishing balls, packing and unpack-
ing suits, inflating balls, seeing that players keep training, etc. Julian has
been trainer for two years and has handled this job capably.
Loyal Burlfholcler and Carlyle Frederick
Loyal and Curly have faithfully followed the team and led the cheering
for N.H.S. They put forth their best efforts and created several new yells.
They did much to arouse the school spirit and keep the fans at the peak of
excitement. The school appreciate the time given by these two students to
keep that old spirit active.
