Mr. Roose and Mr. .Abell Educational Team littery As lt Enters Scholastic Finals Seventy-eight jittery 'gfroshn took the floor at ole Nappanee High, September 3, 1935, as J. A. Abell blew the whistle to start the game of edu- cational accomplishment for berths on the '39 graduation squad. Just after the tip-off, it was announced that Carlyle Frederick had been appointed cap- tain for theifirst quarter. He was aided by Ruby Calbeck, with Catherine Mullett keeper of the financial score. From the coaching faculty, Harvey THE NAPANET 1939 SEVENTEEN - A - I f -1 EDUCATIONAL TEAM JITTERY AS IT ENTERS SCHOLASTIC FINALS fContinuedj Postma and Esther Hoover were chosen as referees, while spots on the Stu- dent Council were given to Cwendolyn McCormick and Tilson King. The first and only utime outn of the quarter was called for November when the team met uflard Bumps" at the Stuckman roller rink. At 8-31736 the whistle again called uthe teamw back on the floor for the second quarter, after a much-too-short rest period and vacation. We were led by Glen Stillson as captain, and he had as his assistant, Arthur Sharp. Catherine Mullett maintained her position as financial score-keeper. A substitution in referees was made with Mr. Foulke, assisted by Miss Hoover. Tilson King and Carlyle Moore were field generals as members of the S. C. We again called for only one utime outn for February with a skat- ing party. Most of the team took advantage of it too, as it was badly wanted and needed. This quarter passed almost before we realized it. 9-l3-'37 found sixty of us out on the floor for our third quarter for more battle. With the leadership of Arthur Sharp and Gwendolyn McCor- mick and Catherine Mullett in her same position, we felt pretty 'Gcock-sure" we were coming along 0. K. Miss Blank and Mr. Byers were substituted for Mr. Foulke and Miss Hoover, and the S. C. boasted of four members instead of two, namely: John Lynch, Helen Hamman, Junior Dumph and Donivan Hall. Our splendid record of limited utime outs', Went unbroken, as again we took one for a weiner roast at Ceyer's Dam, October l5. Oh, yes four apologiesj there was a second 'ftime out,', and an important one too. It was taken for the Junior-Senior Reception. But time passes, and for the last time we were beckoned out on the floor. This was the all-important and final quarter. Could we make it? Would we win? At first the game seemed like a cinch for the fifty-seven of us, but it didn't take us long to realize we had our biggest battle ahead. Every minute counted to the final gong. We were led out on the playing Hoor by Ralph Greene and Helen Hamman. One glance to the other side told us Catherine Mullett was still our financial score-keeper. We were given the best of coaches in the selection of J. A. Abell and Galen Roose. Our side line boosters were the same as for the previous quarter with the addition of Rosemary Roose and Martha Wagner. Team cooperation and untiring effort brought us our reward when at last the 'Ggun went ohm and we walked off the floor - tired, but victorious and happy, cheered as the team that had won the game. After the game we were given a rare treat by the second team at the Junior-Senior Reception. It was nice being the honored guests. But that wasn't the last of it. Commencement found us receiving those white rolls of paper tied up in ribbon, which is proof to us and the world forever and ever that we were victorious in '39. Catherine Mullett.

TWENTY Diploma Hour The graduating class of l939 numbers fifty-seven. There are twenty- eight boys and twenty-nine girls. N. H. S. has graduated two larger classes and two the same size as the class of 1939. During the past sixteen years, including the present class, 368 boys and 389 girls have graduated from N. H. S. The Valedictorian has been a girl twelve times. The Salutatorian has been a girl ten times. Are girls brighter than boys, or do they work harder? Birthdays. Every month of the year has one or more birthdays. How- ever, only one student celebrates in June, and one in September. March, with eleven birthdays, and July, with nine, are most popular. There are six birthdays in August, six in November and six in December. This class is blest with a large group of twins as follows: Gwendolyn McCormick and Paul Weldyg Helen Hamman and Dorcas Hoke, Ruby Calbeck and Virginia Snider, Everett Gould and Dorothy Hooverg Thelma Hahn and Frederick Jensen, and Howard Rurkholder and Catharine Mishler. A very outstand- ing fact is that six of these graduates were born between March 3 and March 8, 1921. What a wonderful opportunity for a joint birthday celebration! One student celebrates on St. Valentine's Day and one celebrates on Christ- mas. The oldest member of the class is a boy. Due to grouping students in the rural schools, a few complete their work in eleven years. The babies of the class are Jean Strauss and Elva Haney. Jean, the youngest, is l7 years, 3 months, and l0 days old today. The The The The average average average average age age age age of the boys of the girls of the boys of the girls is l8 years, 2 months, 3.68 days. is l7 years, ll months, 27.72 days. is 9.16 days less than last year. is l month and .3 days less than last year. The boys of the present class are younger than eight of the past fifteen classes and older than seven. The girls of the present class are younger than nine of the past fifteen classes and older than six. The attendance of the class has been very good. lt is better than any class since l93l. The ,average attendance for this class is 980229. The girls missed an average of 3.235 days each year, while the boys missed 3.6 days each year. A total of 779 days had been missed up to April 17 - 403.83 by the boys and 375.17 by the girls. Those who have missed five days or less during the four years are as follows: Evelyn Roose and Martha Wagner perfect attendance, Robert Clark, Anna Culp, and Arthur Sharp day absence, Dorcas Hoke l day, Ralph Greene, and George Price 2 daysg Gwendolyn McCormick 293 days, Helen Furney 2 516 days, Everett Gould 3 days, Junior Dumph gyl days, Paul Weldy 4 lf6 daysg George Bock, Kenneth Copsey, Lois Conrad, Rosemary Roose, and lna Marie Shaffer 5 days peach. Of the 57 graduates, three entered Nappanee Schools in 1926, thirty-two in 1927, ten ibetween the second and eighth year of school, and twelve entered High School either as Freshmen or later. Of these twelve, eleven entered from the rural schools of the surrounding townships. Eighty-six children entered Nappanee first grade in 1927. Of the eighty-six, thirty-two are on the platform tonight, twenty-eight have moved away, twenty had dropped out of school, and six are still in school. Of the twenty who drop- ped out, ten quit before reaching high school. Thirteen of these graduates are classed as rural and forty-four live in Nappanee. J. A. Abell, Superintendent.

H. S. Since that time, 13 have either dropped out or moved away, the present enrollment being 66. During the past two years the following have served as ofiicers: F RESHMEN President ........................................................

Realizing that the task before us, in the form of the Junior-Senior Reception, would require capable leadership, we re-elected Devon Hall for president. Jack Byers was chosen vice president, and Mary Nola Roose, who has served as secretary-treasurer since the Seventh grade was retained in that capacity. Mary Teeter, Gloria DeVaux, Robert Arnott, Fred Pletcher, and David Coppes are our Student Council representatives. Our only entertainment as a class was a skating party held early in the second semester. lt is with deep regret that we recollect our wasted moments, and with great joy and pride that we remember our triumphs during the past three years,-and next year we will he Seniors! May we do our best to make the most of our opportunities, and leave behind us an enviable reputation as students of N. H. S. -Betty Phend.

C rimson and White HISTORY This new crop of Freshmen has just entered in the good old N. H. S. airline service. :Xt one time in the first semester we tried to have a skating party, but as the plane wasn't large enough for everybody, some of them had to fall out or sit down. Then again in March we attempted to have another skating party. There W61'6H7l near as many skating as the first time, so not so many fell out of the door of N. H. S. Uver the Christmas Vacation, when no one was watching, we Freshmen politely lore the left wing off the N. H. S. ship. NH-m-m-m-m," says Mr. Abell. ln the latter part of the basketball season some of our boys were re- warded for their hard studying by being put on the second team. Our class is also represented in Junior Cirl Reserves, G. A. A. and the Band. May l say too, our ugreenn freshmen girls had just as much luck cap- turing the first team's eyes as any other class! We chose our pilot and co-pilot as ,loan Mellinger and Robert Geyer, respectively. We also left Vivian Postma holding the bag fof moneyl and Pat Doyle, Josephine Mullett and Russell Campbell to join the Student Council and decide all weighty matters.

We had two parties this year: the first one was a Masquerade Hallowe,en party in the school gymnasium, and the second a Skating party at Stuckmanls Hall.

M iss Slzively, Mr. Robbins HISTORY September 6, 1938, 69 seventh grade pupils entered school again to continue our work. Things seemed strange to us for a while as we had to be with so many people with whom we were not well acquainted. Two of our class moved away during the year so we number only 67. We organized our class early in the year, choosing Lois Nicodemus-- President, John Maust-Vice President, and Mary Louise Laser-Secretary Treasurer. Miss Shively and Mr. Robbins were our sponsors. Our activities during the year included two skating parties which were immensely enjoyed by all present. Wfe were all made very sad, when shortly after the holidays, one of our class, Fay Mast, was struck by an automobile. One leg was broken and an arm injured. She was not able to return to school until May 8. Teachers and pupils did all they could to make life pleasant for her. -Lois Niccflfzmus.

Martha Wagner The Student Council is an organization which allows the students to help in making and regulating school laws and codes. This organization maintains the Lost and Found Department which helps to locate articles which are lost, and return them to their owners. This year the Student Council passed a law which says: When a student has caused sufficient disturbance in classes to be sent out of class twice he must appear before the Student Council. Then if he is sent out of class for the third time he must bring his parents to school and hold a conference with Mr. Roose. lf this still does no good and he commits the offense again he will be permanently dismissed from the class in which he caused the most trouble. This is equivalent to taking away credit in one subject for the semester. The members are elected as follows: When a class enters the seventh grade they elect one member, who shall be carried from year to year, and thus by the time they become seniors they will have six members on the council. The Girls' Athletic Association, which is sponsored by the Student Council, has Martha Wagner as its chairman. -Martha Wagner.

C atherine Mullen This is the fourth year for the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools in Nappanee High School. The Charter was granted to the Nap- panee chapter March 25, 1936. Membership is based on character, scholar- ship, leadership, and service. Election to membership is determined by the high school faculty. The membership is limited to fifteen per cent of the Senior class, and five per cent of the Junior class. All the members of last year were lost by graduation except Rosemary Roose, Gwendolyn McCormick, and Catherine Mullett. Helen Hamman, Arthur Sharp, and Martha Wagner were elected in the fall. During the second semester the membership was again increased by the election of the following: Paul Weldy, Everett Gould, and Donivan Hall, Seniorsg and Betty Phend, Mary Nola Roose, and Jack Byers, Juniors. The directing of a questionnaire on school problems, and the sponsor- ing of an assembly program were the two activities of the organization.

French Horn and a snare drum, 16 new uniforms, including a director's uniform, were pur- chased for the band. The regular High School Band boasts a membership of 67, a marching band of 52, and a Junior band of 35. In November, our band, and two other bands went to ,limtown and took part in a county band clinic, led by Mr. Nile Hovey. To obtain money for our uniform fund, we gave two concerts, one in December, and the other in April. The American Legion sponsored a Min- strel Show, for our benefit. Many other smaller projects were carried out. One of the most outstanding and helpful activities, was the forming of the Band Boosters Club, bv the band members' parents. This club, in- terested only in the welfare of the band, did much to make it a bigger and better band. The highlight of this school's band year was playing host for the Second District Solo and Ensemble Contest held March 18th. Over 550 students participated in this event. Seventeen students gained the right to participate in the State Solo and Ensemble Contest held at Valparaiso, and from those seventeen, one, Mar- jorie Martin, tenor saxophone soloist, went to the National at Indianapolis. And now, at the close of a very successful year, we want to thank the parents, Mr. Abell, and the School Board members, for their kind co-opera- lion during the year.

Girl Reserves, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior girls, that,s what we are. A group to which new members are added every year. We - these girls - started on a road which turned out to be the uroad of success". This was due to the excellent co-operation on the part of the girls and the help of our sponsors, Miss Lantz and Miss Watters. Our club is a branch of the Elkhart Y. W. C. A. and was organized by Miss Hazel Dickey in l925. Since that time the club has had other sponsors and .has progressed so much that today we have one of the finest organiza- tions in the school. Our organization meets every two weeks on Tuesday morning. Besides giving entertaining programs we have taken part in many other activities which have developed us in Body, Spirit, and Mind. Our uroughn initiation was held at the school as was our serious ini- tiation on November second. Miss Lantz and twelve of the girls were at the C. R. conference held at South Bend on February 25th. We also had several parties, one of which was a Hi-Y - G. R. party. We contributed to charity and studied community problems. We sincerely hope the following Girl Reserves will have as successful and enjoyable a year as we have had. .

A. and through other local clubs. i During the school year the meetings are held bi-monthly in the high school building. After the business session, a program arranged by the chairman of the program committee is presented. Other activities of the club are mostly social such as joint programs or parties with the Girl Re- serves and the Father and Son Banquet. At the annual Hi-Y Conference held in Elkhart this year Nappanee was well represented and received a district banner, tieing with Wakarusa for the first place. 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. To become a member uf the Hi-Y you are selected and approved by the advisory committee. After 4'due" initiations you are a full-fledged member. -Ralph Jerles.

The Fi-Kem Science club was organized in 1936 through the efforts of Mr. Foulke and several students who were interested in the field of chemistry, physics and other important fields of science. To become a member of this club a student must have among other things, an average of MB" or above in both the school curriculum and citi- zenship. The meetings are held bi-monthly usually on Thursday evening from seven to ten in the science room of the high school building. Programs are arranged by members of the club or some outside speaker. One very in- teresting report was given by Harry Sechrist of the Vitreous Steel Products Company. Not only have the activities of this club been very interesting but also helpful in many ways. The club has taken several trips to points of interest and the club has laid plans to visit some of the main scientific points of Chicago. Because of its high entrance requirements and because of the efficiency of its sponsor, Mr. Foulke, this club has been quite successful and enjoyed by every member. -Ralph Jerles.

For the past several years the patrol boys have been organized for this purpose. The class of '39 commends them for their excellent work. We feel that if every high school student obeyed the Patrol Boys it would help them a great deal in controlling those in the lower grades. 'hhcahh THE NAPANET 1939 l FI FTY-THREE Debate Club s Betty Collins, Miss XfVatters, Betty Phend, Jack Byers, Reatha Dumph. RESOLVED! That the United States and Great Britain should form an alliance. The debate team was organized in the fall of 1938 and studied on the above question until the end of the season, March l. Due to the ever chang- ing conditions in Europe it was necessary for the debators to keep well in- formed on current news bulletins which would have decisive influence upon the question. The teams were under the leadership of Miss Watters. The annual Pur- due Debate Conference was attended by Miss Watters and a few of the de- baters. Useful information was gained and an enjoyable time was spent there. They also attended a debate tournament at Ft. Wayne on December l0. 1938. Those that completed the season were: Affirmative, Betty Phend, and Jack Byers and negative, Reatha Dumph, and Betty Collins. Meetings were held after school twice each week. On February 4, the team participated in a debate tournament at Elk- hart in which the negative debated Goshen and the affirmative debated Elkhart. Both teams were defeated. There was on February ll, the second session, which was held at Goshen, in which the negative debated Concord and the affirmative debated Millersburg. The results were an affirmative victory and a negative defeat. The teams had an enjoyable year and the coming season of 1939 and '40 is being looked forward to. .

Every library should try to be complete on something, if it were only the history of pin-heads. Even though our library is not a large one we be- lieve it is very efficient. We have over two thousand books and about twenty weekly and monthly magazines which cover many interests. The purpose of our library is to help students to learn and to introduce them to new things and friends. We have thirteen librarians who are familiar with the books and magazines and who help those who are less familiar. Some other duties of the librarians are checking in new magazines, keeping a record of all books taken out, and collecting fines for overdue books. This year the li- brary has purchased a set of f'Americana Encyclopedia" and a uWebster's New International Dictionary." About one hundred fifty new books have been added to the library this year. Miss Shively, our librarian, has tried to select those books, both classic and current, which would be beneficial and helpful to the students and also acquaint them with the world,s best books. For as Elizabeth Barrett Browning has said- 'clt is rather when We gloriously forget ourselves, and plunge Soul-forward, headlong, into a book's profound, Impassioned for its beauty, and salt of truth- 'Tis then we get the right good from a book."

The mainstay of our team because of his height and brainy playing. Robert will be lost by graduation. GLEN STILLSON "Sc-lz.Iif:" One of our fastest players, Glen is all over the floor, making longs, semi- longs, and pivots easily. His quick thinking and good shots helped get the team out of many a tight spot. Glen is a senior. GERALD BANGHART 'LBangy,' Fast playing, quick thinking, and a good shot, seems to characterize Bangy. Very good on defense he also has led many an offensive drive to victory. Gerald will receive his diploma this year. TILSON KING NTU" Stealing balls, tying up opponents in held balls, and making free- throws, seems to be Tilis specialty. A fast player he is thoroughly reliable at all times. Til is also a senior. JAMES GREENE "jim7' Playing best on defense, Jim also comes through with a basket when needed most. His ability to get rebounds has helped our team many times. Jim is leaving a wide breach by graduation. GEORGE PRICE "Port" George was an alternate sub and first five player. His ability to drive in and score on under-basket shots has helped win games. George will gradu- ate this year. JOHN LYNCH "REU, One of our better subs, John, is sent in every time a reliable player is needed. John's long shots were the method by which he broke into the scor- ing column. John is a senior. RAYMOND WISE "Rimo" Tall and fast Rimo is sent in immediately on the need of a pivot man. His ability to score pivot shots helped to win plenty games. Raymond also will graduate. RALPH GREENE '4Satch" Another tall and speedy player Ralph is usually one of the boys sent in first when a need is reached and he is always capable of handling the job. Satch leaves by the graduation route. RICHARD PIPPEN "Pip', The only undergraduate on the team Pip is one of the speediest boys on the floor and very good on defense. Pip is a Sophomore and no doubt he will be the mainstay of the Bulldogs in the next two years. THE NAPANET 1939 .. .. SEVENTYONE Some Outstanding Games MISHAWAKA 36 NAPPANEE 31 Nappanee came out on the short end of this game but only after a hard Hght. Height was lVlishawaka's chief advantage. The first quarter was slow moving, but the game speeded up in the second to give the Maroons a slim advantage of 16 to 13 at the end of the half. The Bulldogs put on a sprint in the third quarter to tie up the Cavemen but in the last quarter Mishawaka broke loose from the tenacious Bulldogs to win by a score of 36 to 31. ELKHART 311- NAPPANEE 31 Once again there was a very tight game between these two ancient rivals, the Blue Blazers and the Bulldogs. Breaking loose from the first in a very fast offensive, tight defensive, and a sinking of long shots, the Bulldogs so surprised the Blazers that at the end of the half Nappanee led to the tune of 18 to 7. But the Blazers didn't quit. Blazing back in the last half they start- ed a march, led by Glenn Mast, Elkhart star, which proved to be a march to a coveted victory. Playing fast and furious Elkhart found themselves with a one point lead and only a few minutes to go, so they sank another for good measure to clinch the game at the score of 34 to 31. SECTIONAL TOURNEY On March 2, 3, and 4, eleven schools of Elkhart County competed in the annual sectional basketball tourney which was held at the Elkhart Cym- nasium. Friday afternoon the highly touted Nappanee Bulldogs won a game from the New Paris Cubs. The Cubs were playing inspired basketball and having nothing to lose played the harder, but, in the fourth quarter the fa- vored Bulldogs began pulling away from the cubs, thereby advancing to the semi-final game with Concord. With the Bulldogs in the lead with but 90 seconds to go Concord scored to send the game into an overtime period. The Minutemen took advantage of the two personal fouls to win the game. The sharpshooting Concord quintet moved into the final game with the Blazers. After holding their own for three quarters of the game they finally bowed in defeat to the great Elkhart team, who won their third sectional crown in three successive years.

IT IS OUR MOST SINCERE WISH, THAT IN THE FUTURE YEARS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS ANNUAL, YOU WILL RECALL ALL THE EXCEL- LENT BASEBALL, BASKETBALL, TENNIS, AND TRACK TEAMS THAT HAVE COME OUT OF N. H. S. AND ESPECIALLY THE ONE WHO HAS BEEN HEAD COACH FOR THESE MANY YEARS.

George Bock, Nappanee's ace hurler, pitched a no hit game against Millersburg, setting them down by a score of l6 to 0. The spring games will be much tougher to get by due to the conference games that are to be played, but, by playing the kind of baseball the boys did in the fall, we think they will get along very well. THE NAPANET 1939 SEVENTY-SIX Coach IN 1927 A SLIGHT, MEDIUM BUILT M 'KN TOOK OVER THE COACHING WORK OF NAPPANEE HIGH SCHOOL AND SINCE THEN HAS PRODUCED BASEBALL AND BASKETBALL TEAMS THAT HAVE COMMANDED THE RESPECT OF ALL THE SURROUNDING SCHOOLS. THAT MAN WAS HERMAN 'GDUTCHU SCHULER. WITH HIM HE BROUGHT A NEW APPRECIATION OF SPORTSMANSHIP, TEACHING HIS PLAYERS NOT ONLY HOW TO PLAY WELL AND FAIR AT BASEBALL AND BASKETBALL, BUT ALSO PREPARING THEM FOR THE MUCH GREATER GAME OF LIFE. COMBINING COMMON SENSE WITH TRIED AND TRUE STRATEGY SEEMS TO BE DUTCH'S COACHING FORMULA. HE USES A QUIET CONSERVATIVE METHOD TO BRING FULL CO-OPERATION AMONG THE PLAYERS AND HIS EFFORTS HAVE NOT GONE UNREWARDED, FOR TO A COACH THE SATISFACTION OF HAVING A GOOD TEAM IS A REWARD IN ITSELF. IN HIS YEARS AT NAPPANEE HE NOT ONLY HAS EN- DEARED HIMSELF TO A MULTITUDE OF ATHLETES, BUT ALSO TO THE WHOLE STUDENT BODYg THEREFORE, IN A LONG OVERDUE TOKEN OF APPRECIATION, WE, THE CLASS OF 1939, DEDICATE OUR ANNUAL TO OUR COACH, DUTCH SCHULER. THE NAPANET 1939 SEVENTY SEVEN Cheerleaders lt is the duty of the cheerleaders to get in front ofalarge basketball crowd and have them yell cheers in unison to show the basketball players that the whole school, as well as the other rooters, is behind them. Two girls were cheer leaders this year. Maureen Wiseman, Sen- ior and Anna Lou Stuckman, Sophomore. Both are popular girls at Nappanee and their ability to produce the aforementioned yells, and their originality in forming new yells has proven their fitness for the job. Student Manager Taping and wrapping ankles and sore spots, taking care of all the basketballs, playing suits, and all the other equipment, and dur- ing a game keeping the players supplied with towels, balls and knee pads, all go to prove that being a student manager is a hard job and well worth all the extra curricular points received. This job was very capably handled the forepart of the season by Willard Miller, but later was placed in the equally capable hands of George Bock. THE NAPANET 1939 SEVENTY-EIGHT G. A. A.

Elner Hochstettler Vice President ...... Josephine Mullett Sponsor ........................ Miss Hoover In 1931, Miss Heestand, Miss Heckeman, Mr. Goodrich and Mr. Schuler organized the Girls' Athletic Association. This organization was or- ganized to give the high school girls a chance to participate in athletics and to Win monograms. The Girls' Inter Class Tourney which is sponsored by the G. A. A. has been Won for the last four years by this year's graduating class. The club which is sponsored by the Student Council offers seven sports in which the girls may take part. These are basketball, baseball, volley ball, track, tennis, hiking and bicycling. In order for a girl to receive her monogram she must earn 150 points. She earns these by participating in at least four and not more than six sports. Also by being a captain of a team, keeping score, keeping time and referee- ing. After she has earned her 150 points she receives a small QNHSJ mono- gram which entitles her to buy a six inch QNJ monogram.
