Mr. Roose and Mr. Abell The old clock on the assembly wall ticked merrily away, and, as the hands moved slowly toward 8:25 on the morning of September 5, Sixty-five vacation-fresh students filed into the last two rows of scarred seats,-the privilege of only a senior. Yes, we were seniors at last! After twelve years of work and play, we had reached the top. Realizing that this final year was to be the busiest of all our school career, we immediately elected ollicers. Willard Miller seemed to be the people's choice for president. Alonzo Nicodemus ran a close second, and was elected vice-president. Mary Nola Roose who has handled the books for our class since we were in the seventh grade was retained as secretary-treasurer. Of course it was necessary for us to be represented in the Student Council, therefore we chose Mary Field, Mary Teeter, Gloria DeVaux, David Coppes. Fred Pletcher lHoward Miller as alternatej, and Robert Arnott for this or- ganization. Due to various complications, we were unabte to get together for a party. Early 'in the year, we decided to publish a yearbook. Bob Mellinger was elected Editor-in-Chief, and much of the credit for the success of this publication goes to him for his expert management. We visualize the approach of Commencement with mingled emotions in our hearts. for we realize that from there on, everything will be up to us. We have been successful during our school days- our class has been well represented in every organization, and we are especially proud to have eight members of the 1940 Sectional Basketball Championship Team members of our own class. Will our Success in the future be as great? Will we, working as individuals rather than a team, make the most of our opportunities and carve for ourselves a place in this busy world? We are grateful for having had an opportunity to obtain an education, and it is our Sincere de- sire that we may prove a credit to Nappanee High School. -Betty Phend DAVID COPPES MARJORIE CORWIN WADE CULP VELMA DAVIS GLORIA DE VAUX VELMA DUMPH JOE DUNNUCK LOIS EMMERT Nik S .

IIICLICN IIXR'Il II CLASS OF 1940 4 Seam P 1950 The World of Today and Tomorrow! Today we are secure within the halls of Educationfgain- ing our knowledge at our parents' expenseg tomorrowfwho knows? Then we shall be called upon to apply the knowledge we have gainedg4-to shift for ourselves. Come with me aboard the magic carpet of time ten years hence. and let us journey across the United States and see how many of the members of the Class of ,410 we can account for. The dark war clouds have at last lifted from Europe, and as we skim lightly over New York Har- bor. we notice that a large steamer is docking. As we join the merry throng which has assembled to greet- the arrivals, we see a Red Cross Nurse come briskly down the gangplank. It's ROSEMARY MAUST who is just returning from service in Europe. That dignified gentleman waiting to gfeet her looks familiar too. Of course,-it must be CHARLES PLETCHER, JR. He now occupies the mayor's office back in Locke, but he's never lost his affection for Rosie, so he took the week off, and came to New York to meet her. Also returning to the good old U. S. A. aboard this ship, we find ROSS GWIN, American ambassador to France, ROBERT MELLINCER, a well known artist who has just com- pleted a. year of study in Paris, and VELMA DUMPH and KATHRYN MEEK, two famous mission- aries who have been performing miracles among the uncivilized people of the world. The last passenger leaves the steamer, and we turn our attention to the great city of New York, hoping to Rnd among its teeming millions more familiar faces. Our day has been a strenuous one, so let us seek amusement and relaxation in some of New York's gayest spots. The brilliant lights of a night club draw our attention, and upon entering, we hear the sweet music of ROBERT WEY- CANITS orchestra. Robert always was an able musician and he now conducts one of the country's most famous orchestras. He is quite fortunate in having ANNA RUTH MULLETT as his featured vocalist, for Annieis singing is the pride of America. She is also heard each Wednesday evening on comedian JOE DUNNUCICS coast to coast radio program sponsored by BOUCHEWS Brewery. We knew Carl would work his way up! We leave the night club, filled with pleasant memories of the old acquaintances we have encount- ered during the day, and, upon entering a taxi to proceed to our headquarters, we are further surprised FRANCIS HERR JOY HOFFER HAROLD HOLAWAY DOROTHY HOLDERMAN RALPH HOLLAR DONALD JOHNSON HELEN KING MARJORIE MARTIN Samoa' 14 ' " liosiiivi-im' Murw.

Wade came to New York to seek his fortune. but he ended up with an ordinary occupation. We awaken to find the sun shining brightly and beckoning to us to continue our journey. From New York. we plan to travel by air to Washington D. C. Upon arriving at the airport, we learn that we are to be piloted by a lady. Of course we never dreamed that our pilot would be LILLIAN SE- CHRIST, but then Lillian always was determined to fly and she is fulfilling her ambition. HICLIQN KING also prefers an Hairy" career. She is the stewardess aboard Lillianis plane. The beautiful city of Washington provides one with a wide variety of sights to be seen. Chief interest, however, seems to center around the Capitol building. We encounter a young lady walking briskly up the capitol steps, and find. much to our delight, that she is the presidenfs private secretary. MARY TEETER. Thanks to serving Mr. Best in her senior year at NHS, Mary proved quite well equipped for the job. Married? Oh no, not yet, but it doesn't look as though it would be long. That reporter, hounding her footsteps, doesnlt have all his interest centered on getting a story. Say!- he looks familiar. Vlvhy. itfs DEVON HALL. I wonder if he's made up his mind at last! In the halls of Congress, we find history in the making. DAVID STALNAKER is attempting to duplicate Mr. Smith's remarkable feat. He always was one to talk a lot, and it seems that he has plenty to say now. Everyone is too much interested in what this red-headed Indiana senator is saying to explain to us his purpose, so after exchanging a few words with representative NORMAN METZ- LER, we quietly leave to continue our sight-seeing elsewhere. From Washington, we travel southward to sunny Florida. It is an established fact that this lovely vacationland lures many northerners to vacation here, and it is our hope that among the thousands of pleasure seekers, we may find some of our former classmates. Upon arriving at one of Miami's largest hotels, we find that HOWARD MILLER. a prominent author, who has just returned from Ha- waii where he obtained the material for his latest novel, is making his headquarters here. This bit of information is imparted to us by DONALD JOHNSTON. a bell hop in the same hotel. We also learn from various sources that one of Indiana's foremost society leaders, the former MARILYN PIPPEN- P-NUI.

Although Marilyn is now Mrs. Robert Mitchell. this fact doesn't keep her from being the number I sweetheart of the millionaire playboy DAVID CUP- l'l'iS. the idol of all American women. lt is rumored that she has been in constant consultation with her lawyer Wll.l.AllD lVlll.l.l'lll. obviously on the subject of gaining her fredom from Mr llvlitchell. llill always was a good hand at settling dilliculties between students at NHS. Hereis hoping he can handle this affair properly. Among other leading personalities in Florida's social life. we discover that FHFD Pl,li'l'Cll Flt and his orchestra is very much in demand. Featured with this musical unit are l3lf'llTY tiAl.l.AY- Dlilt and lX'll'llll,lf lll'll'lD. famous dancing team of stage and screen. lVlAll,lOllll'l MARTIN and her singing saxophone are also included in llletcheris personality parade. The colorful whirl of life here becomes monotonous after a short time. and we find our thoughts drifting back to the Middlewest and Nappanee. It is with delightful expectancy that we again take up our travels-the next stop being our own beloved home town. Here we are certain to find many familiar places and faces. Upon a visit to our old meeting place. the Hex, we find that it is now under the capable management of' HAROLD HOLAWAY. He ought to know all about it as he used to spend most of his spare time there. FRICDONNA RICE is his .chief soda-jerker. and this combi- nation has served to attract many beauty-seeking young men and women to pause for refreshment at the llex. We are able to learn the whereabouts of several of our old classmates from the idlers and gossipers congregated here. JACK llYl'lliS. who used to be known to his fellow students as "l'finstein ,lr.". is now llrofiessor of Mathematics at Purdue University. He recently was credited with a great mathematical discovery in the form of proof of the trisection of an angle. llUl3l'iHT Cl.l'lVl'iLAND and HAY DEAN have joined the U. S. Navy, and are now China-bound. llll,l. UUNSFH. we learn. has taken over the management of Ringling llros. Circus. and he himself' is featured as the fat man. Failing to gain further information at the Hex. let us go on a sight-seeing tour of Nappanee. and see how many of our classmates we can find who were contented to "stay in their own back yard." Nappanee has grown to become a thriving metropolis. and now boasts of one QKHFI I lg gn tl'M lylyyx tlgpjllllpj SHI-QlQ'1'S YERNA SIAB-KUGH D.-XYID STALNKKIHIIR l.X'tItlt Sltbll 'VIXRX Tl-ll'1Tl-IR ROBERT XNEYGXND FRANK YARI.-KN tj,tRI.Yl.l1 N10 Swan Pwphwf 1950 --e of the finest business districts in Northern Indiana. RICHARD BEST, following the family profession, has taken over Bestis Meat Market. A new brick building, designed by RALPH HOLLAR, a noted architect, has re- placed the old frame one which used to house the market. A new business has been established in the form of an escort bureau, owned and operated by FRANCIS HERR, who has overcome his shyness where ladies are concerned, and now makes it his business to cheer lonely hearts. ROBERT ARNOTT has advanced from a shoe-shine boy to become proprietor of a large shoe store. ln order to keep the United Brethren parsonage in the family, ALONZO NICODEMUS has taken up the ministry and now fills the pulpit formerly occupied by his father. Of course every minister needs a companion to aid him in his work, and it isn't hard to guess that Lonnie has chosen MARY FIELD as his life-long assistant. Among other successful homemakers in Nappanee, we find LOIS HAHN, HELEN HARTER, LOUISE GEYER, RUTH ANN MILLER, and VELMA DAVIS. WESLEY PRISER, who is helping Lois to be a successful housewife, has just opened a new bakery. Wes decided that it was time Huffmans had some compe- tition. After bowling a few games at CARLYLE MOORE'S bowling alley, we at last turn our attention to the city schools. Naturally, we can not expect all our teachers, efforts to be wasted, so we are certain to find some who have followed in their footsteps. As would be expected, MARY NOLA ROOSE has taken over the kindergarten department. and from all appearances, she is finding that teaching isnit always an ideal occupation. Evidently, Superintendent GEORGE REHRER hasn't taught his small son proper behavior, for he seems to be the center of a great deal of commotion in Miss Roose's kindergarten. LOIS EMMERT has replaced Miss Lantz as head of the music department, and as we spy on one of her classes, we find her not too gently pulling a little boyis hair in an effort to help him reach the top of the scale. CORA- BELLE SHAUM is putting her knowledge of cooking. sewing. and other household arts to practical use as head of the Home Economics department. PAUL MOYER is the gentleman you see pushing the broom around. He's the new janitor. FRANK YARIAN, after having TWENTY-TWO been Coach Best's right-hand man during his senior year, has finally advanced to the posi- tion of chief of the NHS coaching staff. Upon making a tour of the surrounding country, we find DELBERT MELLINGER plowing his fields and planting his spring crops. He is well known hereabouts as the typical American farmer. JOY I-IOFFER, who choses to spend her life as a spinster, is owner of a large dairy farm south of town. Out Etna Green way, we discover that HAR- RIET FOGEL has settled down to the Grimm life of a farmer's wife. Having covered Nappanee and vicinity very thoroughly, we say "au revoirw to our friends, and continue our "See America Firsti' tour in the windy city of Chicago. The base- ball fans here are all extremely enthusiastic over the Cub's latest discovery,---a sensational new pitcher. Anxious to see him in action, we decide to take the afternoon off and see a ball game. When the shower of confetti, pop bottles, etc. was cleared away, imagine our surprise to see LAMAR STOUDER walk calmly out to the mound. His ability to pitch didn't end upon graduating from NHS. VERNA SLABAUGH is the idol of all Chicago socialities. She is the proprietor of a very exclusive fashion shop, and her cre- ations are the ideal costumes. MARIALYCE SEELIG and LOIS MUNTZ are the young ladies who model for Miss Slabaugh. DONA- BELLE SHEETS, KATHRYN BERKEYPILE, and MARJORIE CORWIN are all members of the WLS National Barn Dance crew, and are becoming famous as the 3 little maids, the original trio having left the show. DOROTHY HOLDERMAN has also gained fame via the radio. She is the nation's leading lady news commentator. A Even Hollywood has gained something from the NHS Class of '40. The latest glam- our boy to stir the hearts of feminine movie- goers is none other than 'CHARLES N. PLETCHER. His new leading lady, who has the male movie fans agog is the beautiful GLORIA DEVAUX. Hollywood rumors say wedding bells will ring soon for these two famous stars. Our journey is nearing its end. We have found that fortune has smiled on the Class of 940, bringing each member success and happi- ness. May their success be lasting and their happiness complete. Here's to the Clas of '4-O! --Betty Phend. '7!w Glam Wd!

Sludeal Gcuwcil PRESIDENT ..... David Coppes VICE PRES.. . .John Richmond SECRETARY ...... Mary Field As the oflicial organ of student government. the Student Council serves as the medium through which student control and administrative interpretations are effected. Problems of student discipline falls under jurisdiction of this body. Also there are two permanent committees, the Girls Athletic Committee and the Sanitation Committee, in charge of cleanliness in the corridors and class rooms. Since 1937 the Lost and Found Department has been sponsored by the Council. This department helps to locate articles which are lost, and returns them to their owners. At the be innin of the school ear the Student Council instituted the home-room s fstem. During 8 g Y 5 is this period from 8:25 to 8:55 each day, clubs. classes, and special committees may meet. As an out- growth of this system the honor-rooms and assembly were organized. Because the only ofhcial in these study rooms are student monitors, the student develops the spirit of self-direction in the school and trains his mind and will to its full power. This year the Student Council Constitution was revised. Under this revision each home-room elects two representatives to the Council instead of each class electing their quota of members. By repre- senting a home-room that meets each day instead of a class that meets twice a year, a Student Council member is brought much closer to student problems which may be remedied by the Council. A College Plan was also introduced this year by the Council. Under this plan students who maintain an academic and citizenship average of 88 or better for the four years of their high school career may, during the last six weeks of their senior year, attend school only for their classes. This is a reward for attaining high grades and helps prepare the senior for college study. Jia-if GM PRESIDENT . .Harold Holauray VICE-PRES.. . ..... lack Byers SECRETARY .... George Rehrer Since the first Hi-Y was organized December 31, 1924, its aims have been to "create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian characterf, Mr. Abell was its first advisor. Beginning in 1929 Mr. White has assumed leadership of the club, and has done excellent work since then. The new members of each year have to under-go a rough initiation, and also a serious initiation. This year the club has made several trips to the Elkhart Y. M. C. A. Early this spring a com- bined C. R.-Hi-Y. skating party proved a success. A Father-and-Son banquet was held this year at the Brethren Church. FORTY-ONE PRESIDENT ....... Jack Byers vlcla-PRES. ...... Betty Phend SECRETARY.Mafy Nola Roose This is the fifth year for the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools in Nappanee High School. The charter was granted to the Nappanee Chapter on March 25, 1936. Membership in this organization is based on four virtues' character, scholarship, leadership, and service. The members of the organization are chosen by the entire faculty. The membership of the organization is limited, only fifteen per-cent of the Senior class may be selected. Mary Nola Roose, Betty Phend, and Jack Byers were members of the society for the last two years. During the year new members of both Senior and Junior classes have been added. Directing an Honesty questionnaire among all high school students has been one of the outstand- ing features accomplished this year by the Society. -6. In the School library there are many new books now available. Also a group of twenty weekly and monthly magazines are for the use of the students. Books for reference readings are placed upon reserve shelves, and can only be used for one hour. The work of the Librarian runs from checking all books that leave the library to charging the students that hold them over-due. The old rule of requiring students to get permission to use library during study hour still goesg and since in effect has cut down the number who visit and loaf. This year the Library was given a new vertical file for pamphlets and clippings. Under the supervision of Miss Shively the librarians have shown much co-operation and ad- vancement.

SECRETARY ...... Betty Phend The Girl Reserves, one of the outstanding clubs of N.H.S., has been on the upward climb since it was organized in 1925. Then it became a branch of the Y.W.C.A., Miss Hazel Dickey being the organizer and first sponsor. Since then the club has continued to live up to its purpose, "To find and give the best," and we owe a great deal to our present sponsors, Miss Ferne Lantz and Miss Urthello Stephen. Our Club meets bi-monthly and besides having entertaining programs we are challenged to "Face life squarely". T wenty-three new members were taken into the Club by a real initiation given by the old mem- bers. Later an inspirational initiation was held. The Club continues to progress and has reached this standard only by the interest and co-operation of the girls, officers and sponsors. . -Lois Emmerz. SENIOR GROUP fTop Picture!

II. S. And entered the Freshman class. We overcame our Freshman fears, When Sophomores we became, We always had good scholarship And always played the game. At last we reached our Junior year, A happy carefree throng, And showed the Seniors our respect By our Junior-Senior Prom. Beneath the teachers' steady gaze, We tried to do our best, And with firm determination We struggled for success. Our school days are almost over, Let's be happy and gay. And hope good luck will follow us Along our pleasant way. Now, since we've reached our Senior year QW e cannot tell you whyj We hate to say farewell to you, And bid you all good-bye.

Sheis pecked, shagged and suzy-qued Her way into Merle Reedis heart. A little girl that we all know, Has gotten so much sweeter Since she's wooed and won Bob Canger. Guess who? Why Mary Teeter. Vivian Postma a Sophomore girl Has dared and defied all the rest. She's opened her arms and given her love. . To curly headed Dick Best. Marilyn Pippenger a friend of all Has certainly lost no ground. She finally has Mitchell under her To struggle is useless heis found. thumb. The next in line is Fredonna Rice. It isn't hard to see. The reason she grabbed Bill Miller, Was for his ancient HT". Josephine Mullett from the north end of town Has been bitten by nature's 'Slove-bug" She made up her mind to get a man. But her choice was a guy named Slug. And last but not least, is Betty Phend. Shels rated among the best. She's taken Lamar for better or worst. Her love will outlive the rest.

RAY BEAN "Beanie', "Beanie" is one of our faster players. His ability to make set and one-handed shots gave him his well-deserved place on the team. Ray is a Senior this year. JOE DUNNUCK "Dunk, Well known, is Joe, by the Nappanee fans as one of our best offensive players. Win- ning the Goshen game in the last few seconds is typical of ,loeis playing. Joe will also graduate. DE VON HALL uRabbit" Being the smallest man on the team has in no way handicapped "Rabbit". Speed and ability to think quickly characterizes him. De Von will be lost by graduation. LOWELL MCCUEN "Gunn "Cut's,' ability to sink long shots well earned him a regular position on the first five. Only a Junior, "Cut" will have another year of basketball. ROBERT MELLINGER "Bohn His ability to score when placed in the game has made "Bob" well known to the fans as a reliable and dependable player. '4Bob', also leaves the school by graduation. ALONZO NICODEMUS "Nick" Playing best on defense, "Nick" also came through with his share of the points. Being one of the heaviest men on the teamraided him in being a valuable guard. "Nick" is a Senior. ' RICHARD PIPPEN "Bones', Pip has proven to be the backbone of the team. Although being handicapped by his knee, he was one of the speediest and very good on defense. He is a ,lunior and will play next year. CHARLES PLETCHER "Corny,' The main thing "Corny" was noted for this year was his last few minutes of play in each game. He could be depended on for at least two baskets. It is too bad the school loses him this year. LAMAR STOUDER "Club,' The position of center was usually filled by 6'Club", who played the position very well. The latter part of the year, LaMar improved his shots and aided the team in winning. "Club', is also a Senior. FRANK YARIAN "Handle" ' "Handle,' came through when ever needed. One of the most conscientious boys in obey- ing training rules. His ability to score on left-handed shots always put his name on the score sheet. Frank is a Senior. SIXTY-SEVEN MISHAWAKA 27 NAPPANEE 29 One of the outstanding victorious games which the Bulldogs played this season. The team gained a long lead in the first half, only to have the Maroons creep up to within one point of the Bulldogs in the third quarter. However the Naps held the lead and a little more to end the game with a two point lead. GOSHEN 31 NAPPANEE 33 The most exciting game of the season was played in Coshen's gymnasium with a crowd of 1800 spectators. The Redskins outplayed the Bulldogs for the entire first half only to col- lapse during the third quarter. Stouder seemed to wax hot for he swished four straight long shots. This semed to demoralize the Redskins. In the fourth quarter Hoogenhoom made sev- eral shots to bring them within range of the Naps. Finally with 9 seconds of play left, l-loogenboom made a foul shot to tie the game. Out of the scramble came the ball sailing to- ward the Nap goal. Dunnuck seemed to be waiting for it because he picked it out of the air and with an amazing side shot cinched the game for the Bulldogs. ELKHART 32 NAPPANEE 30 This game was the worst defeat of the season because of the lead the Naps had all during the first half only to falter in the third quarter after having the lead of twelve points. Finally receiving a defeat of two points the Bulldogs were amazed to have lost such a game to their worst rival. THE 1940 SECTIONAL AND REGIONAL The Nappanee Bulldogs entered the Semi-Finals of The Sectional Tourney in the contest with Jamestown, which they defeated by a score of 27 to 23 in a fast and furious game for which the ,limmies deserve all credit for the game they played. Upon the defeat of the Jim- mies, the Naps went to the finals to play the Concord Minutemen. This was the outstanding game of the tourney ending with a score of 27 to 26 in favor of the Bulldogs to sew up the tourney for them, for the first time since l935. Luck to you in the year to come from the Class of '4-0. The Bulldogs were put out of the Regional in the first game played, bowing to the Ro- chester team. In the evening however the Zebras bowed also to the Riley Wildcats who won the tourney. SIXTY-EIGHT v Nov Dec. HII. 'elm Back Row: Wayne Best, coach.

Em Glam .fealefu - The cheerleaders chosen this year by the student body were Shirley Walters, Betty Tobias, and Ellen Jean Pippen all of the Freshman class. These girls have served us very faithfully throughout the year. The girls have created a renewed interest in cheering the team on, with their new yells, gymnastics, and contagious pep and vigor. Slucfen! Malayan The Manager this year was Vllillard fBillJ Miller. The duty of the Student Manager is taping and wrapping strained ligaments and pulled tendons, taking care of balls, suits, and all other equipment, and this year Bill tossed the dog house around. Assistant Manager was Robert tShant Ge er. It seems that if there was anv c y Y , dirty work to be done, it feel to "Shanty" to do it. To these two we give due credit.
