Yes, this year is gone foreverg but we'll always remember the class- room activities, the events, and the personalities it had to offer.

Publishing House Printers of "Napanet" English "Do the High Schools Prepare Students for Practical and Better Living?" This is the topic being discussed by members of the Sen- ior English Class in a symposium led by Glen Stump. Latin On the map Terry points out the three parts of Gaul to the class. ln this second year Latin course Mr. Holaway teaches about Caesar and the Gaulic wars. Geography "It's a big world. isn't it!" ex- claims Mark, as he studies the globe in geography classy but Mr. White has made it seem far smaller by giving this class a thorough study of all placfes on the earth. What did we "take up" in school besides space? Nappanee Telephone Co. Save with a Telephone Ah, Yes The Clcissesll Chemisfr Y By the look on Doug's face the fumes of this experiment must have a very bad odor. But, because of daily experiments such as this, these students have grown accus- tomed to "that chem' atmosphere." Biology "Do they bite?" asks Doris as she holds the tail of a small White rat! These little creatures were used for many experimental 'pur- poses in biology class. Drivers Training Oh-oh. Is it safe with Wyana at the Wheel? Of course, with an ex- pert like Mr. Osborne for our driv- ing instructor, We should have nothing to fear! f: .f, 7. F l L. JP Cox Coal and Lumber Co.

Y0u'd better keep your mind on cutting tin just as the other boys are concentrating on their industrial arts projects. Art It looks as though Shirley is busy making an oil-painting! ln this advanced art class the students have an opportunity to express them- selves through paintings, drawings, and any other phase of art. I-Ieckaman's Ice Cream - 8 - Nappanee Dairy Typing It looks as if everyone were busy working on his typing budget. The typing room is often in use, not only by the typing and shorthand classes, but also by the "D'Bull- dog" staff. Mr. Postma is always giving his time in helping with all clerical productions of the school. Home Economics "Look how lumpy this is!"eX- claims Donna. There's nothing like learning from experience. Oh, well, how else could we become good cooks than by practice in the Home Ec. class? Agriculture For those of you who know little about farming, through the in- struction of Mr. Douglas these boys are learning how to test milk. . being tordy ...the little yellow slips J C.

It was a iob that required a lot of timeg but we are hoping that the time spent looking at it in the future will be far greater. EDITOR ...i, ,, ,,,, ,e,,,,,,,,,e,,e.

Then the band settled down to concert work in their new "home," the remodeled park audi- torium. Besides entering Solo and Ensemble Contests and Band Contests, we made several trips which were financed by the Band Boosters' Club. ln February we had ioint concerts with the Berne High School choir at Berne and Nappanee. Later, we made an over night tour to Sullivan, Indiana, where we also presented a concert. Likewise, Sullivan presented a concert here at a later date.

In the fall we participated in several activities. Ten of our members were given the opportunity to sing for Teachers Association in South Bend, in a choir of tive hundred students from many high schools. A fall concert was also presented by the combined choir and chorus. Not only did some of us participate in solo and ensemble contest, but in the spring the entire choir entered choral competition. -2g..

Football This marks the second year for football at N.H.S. Although we did not have a winning sea- son, we managed our first victory in modern football history and gained the much needed ex- perience in the game. Of course, most of the credit goes to our coach, Mr. Welborn, who efficiently produced a squad out of inexperienced material. Coach Welborn, our pigslcin mentofr Metzler Shoe Company-Florsheim Shoes for Men- E, Newcomer and Son Miller Health Shoes for Women -31 - The Store of Fine Jewelry Bulldogs Win First Football Victory The opening game of the season with the Goshen B team marked Nappanee's first win in modern football history. Malcolm tackled a Goshen man in back of the goal for two points. Then with only seconds remaining, and Nappanee behind 2-6, Welborn plunged over from the one-yard line to score a touchdown and win the game by a score of 8-6. ln the Columbia City game Nappanee didn't score but threaten- ed once when they were on the one-yard line. The Eagles scored in the second quarter with four seconds to play before the half ended to make the score 6-0. ln the second half they scored twice to win l9-0. The Bulldogs traveled to Knox, but the Indians outplayed them, scoring four times while holding the Dogs scoreless. McQuire and Cook played outstanding games for Knox. Back on Memorial Field the Nappanee team encountered North Judson. The first half found the visitors ahead I3-7 after an eighty yard drive by the Bulldogs, climaxed by a two yard quarter- back sneak by Welborn. But North Judson came back in the second half and went on to win with Banary and Fingerhut driving hard for the visitors. Hold That Line! Left to Right-Don Malcolm.

His drive-in lay- ups from the side and his free throw accuracy are also outstanding. GEORGE SHEETS George is a consistent shot on lay-ups and driving iump shots from the foul circle. He has been team high scorer in several games. RICHARD HEPLER A hard-driving guard and a clean ball handler, Rich is a fine prospect for next season. Kacy's Deluxe Motor Sales De Soto-Plymouth JAMES MlTTERLlNG A flashy dribbler and ball handler, "Chick" is an excellent long shot and his faking keeps the opposition on the move. ROBERT JENSEN "Shep," as center and biggest man on the team, gives an excellent account of himself under the basket. When the going is rough, he's always in there. FRED WlLT "Fuzz" has always been a good ball handler and skillful at feeding the ball in to men under the basket, but he also scores when points are most needed. ,-34.- Nappanee 41 Nappanee 57 Nappanee 44 Nappanee 42 Nappanee 65 Nappanee 55 Nappanee 56 Nappanee 41 Nappanee 60 Nappanee 48 Nappanee 41 Nappanee 54 Nappanee 53 Nappanee 58 Nappanee 51 Nappanee 31 Nappanee 78 Nappanee 55 Nappanee 47 Nappanee 52 Nappanee 46 Nappanee 57 Nappanee 63 Nappanee 45 Total 1050 "Ich" Osbomel . . . our hardwood mentor . .

EDWIN KERN Ed's specialty is a medium-long shot from about twenty-five feet out, which has helped to break up several zone defenses. He is also a valuable all- around ball handler. PAUL FLOWERS "Posey" is another long-shot artist and his height plus iumping ability have helped to keep the opponent's bank- board clean and scoreboard at a mini- mum.

This included upsetting Washington Clay, the St. Joseph County Champs, and losing several heart-breakers by one and two point margins. The highlight of the season was the sectional tournament performance. The Bulldogs edged past Middlebury, defeated Concord in an over- time, and beat Jefferson to go into the finals against the twenty- point favorite, Elkhart. With amazing scrap and stamina the boys followed Osborne's brilliant coaching in a game of possession ball. Although we led until the final seconds, the breaks finally went against Nappanee and Elkhart won by one basket in an over-time period. The entire community is proud of the 1951-52 Bulldogs.

Cross-Country The Cross-Country team took part in three meets in the 1951 season, running against four different schools. Nappanee lost all three, but came close to beating Warsaw in a triangular meet held at Goshen. The last meet of the season was lost to Howe, well known for its strong track teams. Ron Miller placed several times, and other out- standing members were George Sheets, James Warren, Jim Mitterling, and George Fox.

With a bone-dry treasury we bravely ventured forth to raise funds for a trip to Washington, D. C. Impossible? Not with Jim Rose as our leader! We sold concessions at ballgames, had successful taffy sales, and 'presented a senior class play, "We Shook the Family Tree." We'll never forget our trip to Washington! Among our other activities was attending College Night at Elkhart where we had interviews with representatives from different colleges and universities. Also, six of our seniors took scholarship tests from the four state colleges or universities of Indiana. Of course, we were all excited when Senior Week activi- ties rolled around. We especially want to thank the juniors for the line reception they gave us. In spite of it all, there was a spirit of sadness when commencement exercises drew near. We realized we were leaving N.H.S. forever. Ilcctvv M ll.-Lisle XV. Roose, M.D. Ofhce Nappmu ind Van Buren Streets -48- MARK BAMMEL "Mark" B-and I, 2, 3, 4, Pep Band 2, 3, 4, Intramurals 2.
