BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
The members of the Board of School Trustees in New Castle are
Mr. E. G. McQuinn, president, Mr. Martin L. Koons, secretary, and Mr.
Claude Stanley, treasurer, all three of whom are capable business men.
It is to these men that questions and problems affecting the school
must go, and their decision is final in regard to such matters. They under-
stand the needs and possibilities of the school, and are thus able to handle
They deserve much credit for their wise administration, and New
Castle has been very fortunate in securing such men as members of the

"High School graduation comes but once in a lifetime. Other experi-
ences may be repeated. Therefore Senior days should be happy days.
Seniors stand between a happy past and an unknown future and have
reached not the end but the beginning of their lives. The class motto for
this year is significant, 'Forward, Upward, and Onward., Each Senior
should be inspired by this motto. What the future lives of the Seniors will
be depends in large measure on the foundations which have been estab-
lished during past years."

For several years New Castle High School has been unusually fortunate
in having four teachers as deans, whose wisdom, patience, and sincerity
have won them the friendship of the entire student body.
Being a large organization it was necessary for the High School to
have a board of directors. Therefore, there were appointed two deans of
girls, Miss Chambers and Miss Westhafer, and two deans of boys, Mr. Bron-
son ancl Mr. Greenstreet.
Our deans are known to be straight thinkers, fair in all dealings, frank
and cheerful in attitude. That is why all are held in high esteem by all our
high school students.

CLASS OF 1931
In the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and twenty-seven there
entered into the New Castle 6'Halls of Learning" two hundred and ninety-one
seekers of knowledge. We came up from the eighth grade, where we had
for many months been busily engaged in storing our minds with the honey
It so happened, since the hand of upperclassmen, with whom we were
to fight a three-year struggle, possessed a feeling of superiority, that we were
received with wild welcome and insinuating rejoicings as we started up the
slippery by-ways of truth.
By the end of the first semester we had subdued a certain class of wild
beings known as "Sophomores" and who, because of their taste for Fresh-
man blood, pounced upon us daily and nightly and caused us to feel in our
hearts that we must be martyrs to the great and noble cause of education.
This group now being under our control we knew that we had successfully
begun our journey in a quest for the "Fountain of Perfect Understanding."
We were even more fully convinced when some of our members, namely,
Rowe, Conway, Good, Hornaday, Sarantos, Miller and Groves shared honors
in basketball, football and track. The newly organized Science Society
chose Jeanice Rucker, a member of our class, as secretary. For the first
time in our high school career we began to step to the front of the stage in
the play of life.
The following September we came back to school with revenge in our
hearts. In numbers we had decreased to two hundred and forty-eight, but in
spirit and desire we were as strong as ever. The Juniors of today will little
note nor long remember what we say here, but they can never forget what
we did to them-as Freshmen. In sports we were again represented by the
same group that upheld the N. H. S. standard for us in twenty-seven and
twenty-eight. Vcrl Bogue gave us the chance to own a yell leader, after hav-
ing been defeated in his Freshman year. Vcrl also was chosen as a repre-
sentative of the Older Boys Conference, held at Elkhart, Indiana, by the
Senior Hi-Y. During the Sophomore year our class also possessed a couple
of leaders in the Hi-Y organization, with Nick Sarantos as vice-president and
Wayne Harvey, treasurer. Lillian Glazer, Edith Rimping, Ruth Fletcher
and Eva Kassen were our prized Latin students, all having placed in the
county contest and the latter receiving second honors in the district. The
two school organizations picked vice-presidents from our midst, Esther Hall
being chosen vice-president of the Pep'ers and Don Nicholson given a similar
office ln the Leather Lungs.
After completing this very successful year we adjourned for a three
months vacation, half of our glorious high school days having drawn to
The next fall one hundred and seventy-five returned-as Juniors, with
bit overconfident in spirit. We began capturing honors from the first of
the year In basketball our loyal representatives were Rowe, Mercer, Miller
and Harvey. In football the "Conway, Rowe, Hornaday, Sarantos, Miller
and Groves" combination helped New Castle through an undefeated season
and Harvey, Mercer, Groves and Rowe aided the Goar men in finishing a
very successful season in track. Jean Swayzee was chosen yell leader for
the year It seemed that the individual honors for the Junior year rested
mostly in the sport field.
Of course special mention must be made of the Junior-Senior prom
Miss Clara Westhafer was the faculty sponsor. The banquet and a very
clever playlet were given at the Baptist church, followed by a dance at the
Masonic Temple. We were glad to honor the Seniors and appreciated their
cooperation in making this affair a success.
Our entry into the Senior year was to us truly a triumphant one. In
numbers we had fallen to one hundred and eighteen, but as a group of digni-
fied Seniors we were easily given first place in the activities of N. H. S.
Jesse Clazer and Esther Hall were elected heads of the Leather Lungs and
Pep'ers. In the all-state chorus we were represented by Evelyn Davis and
Norman Meek. Wilbur Conway carried away county honors in the 1931
Oratorical Contest, and was also elected president of the Student Council
for the school year. Work on the annual was under the supervision of
Jeannette Brown, Wayne Harvey, Betty W'illett, and Mark Mercer. The
faculty sponsor was Mr. Orville Hooker. Wayne Harvey was also elected
president of the Hi-Y, for the second semester. The Phoenix gained popu-
larity this year with Esther Hall, Helen Moffett, and Robert Simmons ca-
pably heading the staffs. As for sports, the group of Seniors who partici-
pated in basketball, football and track will always be remembered by N. H. S.
as superior athletes.
a feeling of assurance that signified complete understanding tho, perhaps a
The class organized for the first time in its career as a class, at the
beginning of the second semester. Wilbur Conway was chosen president,
Charles McGinnis vice-president, Mary Richey secretary, and Robert Kemper
treasurer. The class colors chosen were green and silver gray. The Pre-
mier Supreme Rose was selected as the class flower, and the motto, "For-
ward, Upward and Onward," gave us the needed inspiration to higher attain-
ments. Our class play, '4Help Yourself," was the first musical comedy ever
given by the New Castle High School.
As we pause to take a final review of our high school career we would
pay tribute to the faculty that so patiently and successfully guided us during
the past four years and in so doing we are reminded of these words of John
Hln the sweet June Days
The teacher and the scholar trust
Their parting feet to separate ways."

The basketball team, with several Juniors among its ranks, has had a
very successful season. The following Juniors have won their places on the
team by their hard work and earnest effort: Vernon Huffman, all-confer-
ence guard, and the best defensive man New Castle has had for several
years, Dale Dakins, floorguard, and Bobby White, forward, are hard-fight-
ing and clever-playing Juniors who have helped to bring the team through
a successful season. Mid Day, Harold Hickman, Randall Lawson, and Merrit
Kersey are reserves.
Playing the best teams, the football team, with ten victories, no defeats,
and no ties, came through the season with a record that any school would
be proud to own. Junior members of the team deserve a great deal of credit
for this splendid record. Bobby White, Mid Day, Gene Locker and Randall
Lawson represent the class of 932 in the backfield. Vernon Huffman was
the only member of the class to play regularly in the line.
Juniors wereoutstanding in scholarly activities, as well as in athletics.
In the Discussion League were Ruth Stinson, Edith Risk, Frederick
Bavender, Elizabeth Lennox, all members of the Junior class.
The Phoenix this year has been one of the best that has been published.
Frederick Cluggish, Mary Bunch, Doris McKee, Frank Cofield and Clarence
Elliott were members of the efficient staff.
During our three years in high school we have tried to make our class
the best ever, and we hope to make the best Senior class in the history of

While "in numbers there is strength," yet our chief pride has been in
the unusual records made in scholarship in the grades and in junior high
with the upperclassmen.
While our two years of experience have made us more humble and

lead them, we feel reasonably complacent when we look back upon our

CLASS OF 1934
In the fall of the year nineteen hundred and thirty, on the ninth day of
September, one hundred and seventy-eight Freshmen stormed the walls of
the Trojan stronghold. We were met by the authorities and various mem
sive corrldors and the huge rooms, we green, inexperienced and very dumb
little Freshmen were at once put to the trials and tribulations of the clan
In a few short months the very walls seemed to shrink and the fortress
that once had appeared so large to us, was only a small high school after
all. At the mid-term seventy-two more of our tribe entered the portals of
dear old N. H. S. and though we had been in their places a very short time
before. we seemed much older, more learned. A short year can make a
great difference in one, and we feel that we have acquired much knowledge
in this time, although we are told by our superiors that there is a great deal
left for us to learn.
Many of our names have appeared on the Honor Roll.
We proudly claim '6,Iimmy" LaMar, a good basketball player on the
second team. In football Hathaway Krausbauer, Edward Dyer, Leroy Hiatt
and Byron White have bright futures.
Many Freshman girls are Pep'ers. We should like to mention every
individual in the class, but as this hook is for Seniors we must wait our turn.
We are soon to be Sophomores, and as we start our second year in high
school we are striving to make this coming year more successful and the
class of H34-9' the largest and best that has ever graduated from this school.

A short time after the second semester had begun, Miss Chambers ap-
pointed the editor and business manager. These, with the aid of the class
advisers, selected the remainder of the staff. Miss Chambers, because of
her illness, was unable to resume her former role as literary adviser, so Mr.
Hooker was appointed for that position. At this time the staff wishes to
thank uHook" for stepping in on such short notice, and lending a hand.
The theme used throughout the annual is that of achievement. The
characters on the green tinted division pages are of our student body. We
feel that these two factors have been instrumental in making our annual a
most attractive and modern one. However, it is up to you to decide whether
or not we have accomplished our aim in making the 1931 Rosennial the
best ever published.

composed of four pages, which carry the news of all happenings concerning
the school, and include editorials, exchange items, feature articles, society
notes, sport news, and humor. The splendid illustrations that have appeared
in this year's publication are a departure from those of preceding years in
that all the work has been done hy certain members of the staff whereas
previously metal cuts were purchased at printing shops.
The publishing of the paper is entirely in the hands of the Journalism

The Phoenix for the second semester had as its editor-in-chief, Helen
E. Moffett, and as its business manager, Robert Simmons.
During this period, fifteen issues were published, thirteen of which
were edited by the regular staff and two by the Journalism 31-A classes. The
editor-in-chief and business managers for these issues were Robert Osborne,
John Armstrong, Dorothy McWilliams and Charles McGinnis.
A special eight-page tournament paper was issued on March 6
Throughout the entire year the publication was splendidly supported
by the business men of the city, who advertised freely in its pages.
A number of feature articles were introduced by the members of the
staff and the paper kept, in the main, to the high standard set for it by the
publications of past years.
As in the past Mr. Greenstreet gave his splendid services to the paper,
and the year proved to be generally successful.

On September 9, 1930, Miss Margaret Bryan reopened her Public
Speaking project. Several new students enrolled in the class. The course
consisted of short discussions, arguments, playlets, and as the final produc-
tion each student gave a long talk. The second semester included de-
bates and orations.
On January 28, an Oratorical Contest was conducted in Room 201.
The entrants included Wilbur Conway, Susan Runyan and Billy Thoman.
Wilbur Conway proved to be the 'csurvival of the fittest" and was chosen to
represent our high school in the county contest. His subject matter was,
"Powers of the People Under Our National Constitution."
On February 20, the County Oratorical Contest was conducted at the
New Castle court house. The contest consisted of two entrants: Wilbur
Conway, and an entrant from Knightstown. Again, Wilbur Conway, with his
forceful talk, was chosen the winner to represent our high school and
Henry county in the district contest.
The judges of these contests were appointed by the Bar Association.
On March 16, the Sixth District Contest was conducted at the New
Castle court house. This has been the first time that the Sixth District Con-
test was conducted at New Castle. Wilbur Conway received honorable
While these contests prevailed, another contest was conducted. The
Discussion Contest, sponsored by the Discussion League, was conducted in
Room 218, March 13. The League supplied the subject matter of 6'Chain
Stores? Ruth Reece was chosen to represent our school in the county
contest. Her subject was: 6'Chain Stores are Detrimental to the People."
Nine other entrants participated.
On March 23, the county contest was conducted at the New Castle
Junior High School. Ruth Reece placed second in the contest.

The New Castle High School Orchestra has horns-like certain people
we know-and above it is shown getting ready to toot them. All high
schools must have a hand and ours cannot be an exception.
Under the leadership of Miss Mae Dorsey, thirty-two members from all
the classes of both the Senior and Junior high schools have been organized.
The orchestra meets for rehearsal each Wellllesday at the eighth period.
This year, on May 6, the orchestra took part in the Annual Music Festival at
Ball State Teachers College. During the year it has also played for the
opening of the Parker school building, the District Oratorical Contest, the
Senior Class Play, Class Day and Commencement.
All the music studied this year has been of the best class. Some of the
selections being, '4March Militairef' by Schubert, "Perfect Day,', by Carrie
Jacobs Bondg 'sBridal Rosef' by Lavaleeg 6'Apple Blossoms," by Roberts.
There are four Seniors, Joseph Tapscott, Mara Vernon, Ruth Fletcher
and Marian Roberts, who have enjoyed the orchestra work for several years.
Their musical talent will be greatly lnissed.

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
This year's New Castle High School Girls, Glee Club has been unusually
successful. The glee club, composed of forty-nine members, under the
direction of Miss May Dorsey, head of the music department, has had sev-
eral opportunities for public appearance that previous clubs have not had.
On October 18 three girls were sent to represent the local high school
in the all state chorus at Indianapolis. These girls were Evelyn Davis and
Mary ,lane DeWitt, sopranos, and Pauline Paris, alto.
The glee club girls, on the evening of May 6, went to Ball State Teachers
College in Muncie, where they sang in the music festival. This is the first
year the glee club has been fortunate enough to accept this invitation.
Betty Elmore, a Freshman, has proven a most efficient accompanist.
She has greatly aided the club to be as successful as it has been.
Senior girls in the club are: Evelyn Davis, Mary McQuinn, Betty
Willett and Ruby Rodenbeck, first sopranosg Maurine Laisure, Mildred
Pitcher and Lillian Glazer, second Sopranos.

"Pep'ers." a name which suits this organization of N. H. S. girls per-
fectly. They have no limit of pep and enthusiasm. Always willing and al-
ways ready to do that which is expected of them and that which is asked of
them. They back the teams in every sport and are the type that never gives
up until the end.
To Mrs. Eden goes the credit and responsibility of this organization.
She has been sponsor for '29-'30-'31, and a very good one, too. It is
through her aid that the Pep'ers have been able to perform.
To make money with which to entertain the Pep'ers sold candy, pop
and peanuts at every football game, using as their headquarters the Pep'ers
Box, that was so generously given to them last year. Every girl willingly as-
sisted and helped the Pep'ers in having a successful season.
On the 13th of January the Pep'ers gave at the Baptist church the fifth
annual banquet in honor of our coaches and our undefeated football team.
The color scheme was carried out with Trojan colors of green and white.
Speeches were given by our coaches, superintendent, principal and members
of the faculty. In conclusion toasts were given by the president and mem-
bers of the club to Mr. Hooker and the members of his team.

Here they are! Look 'em over! Full of pep--this gang of Leather
This active enthusiastic group of boys has successfully created the
friendliness, pep, and clean sportsmanship that helps so much toward fos-
tering a wholesome school spirit. The Leather Lungs have successfully
created, maintained, and extended throughout N. H. S. the highest standards
of clean and upright manhood. This club has cooperated with all other
school organizations in all activities.
From its first year of organization. in 1926, this club has obtained
the high esteem and hearty support of the whole student body.
Under the able cooperation and supervision of the advisors. Mr. Har-
rell and Mr. Hodson, much pleasure and profit has been derived from this
year's work and associations.
The slogan of the 1931 Leather Lungs was. 6'Boost-Never Knock."
When our games were done and our teams needed support, believe us,
that is where we yelled. A yell that many times caused our athletes to give
a little more and, who knows, perhaps we helped to win a game or two.
We hope so at least.
A party was given this spring for all the lettermen. The Leather Lungs
at the festival attempted to show the Trojan warriors that their work was
appreciated throughout the year. A good time was had by all.
SENIOR CLASS PLAY
On the eve of May 14, 1931, as the orchestra with the enchanting melo-
dies carries us into the dreaming Southland, let us draw aside the curtains
and witness the first performance of the gay musical comedy, "Help Your-
self." given hy the Senior Class of 1931 at the Y. M. C. A. auditorium.
Behold! What a gorgeous array of color greets the eye as our southern
lreauties chant the melody, "Piggly Wiggly-Hell: Yourselff' As this lively
rhythmical chorus fades into the background Castoria CMaud Rohinsonj
hums a favorite tune in her Dallas town dialect. She informs her mistress.,
Martha Wentworth fMary McQuinnj, that a prolonged house party of gay
young flappers will give them all cause for worry. Now just hear the
merry laughter of the arriving guests, and just see how beauty and youth
can enliven the dignified estate of Aunt Martha. Castoria and Alimony
hring the minstrel chorus to entertain in their own original manner with
"'Lil' Liza Jane" and other southern melodies. While the girls relate their
traveling experiences Alimony arrives and informs Aunt Martha that her
dearest enemy next door has an important stag party of prominent young
men While the girls enjoy an impromptu dance in celebration, as
directed by the musical Alimony, Aunt Martha hoists her flag of warfare
and forbids all communications with the guests next door. Whereupon
she is encountered with a rebellious group chanting defiance with, "If You
Want to Make a Girl Do a Thing-Just Tell Her She Canit Do lt."
As we approach the den of John Gordon CNorman Meekj we hear our
favorite war songs, and we soon find how the best laid plans of man are
tha's bulldog when he attempts to see Doris Reynalds CMildred Henbyb,
next door Ross Howard CJesse Glazerj makes a failure when he attempts
to use his secret service codes for love-making with Grace West CSusan
vlewmg Polly Adair CEvelyn Davisj, and Harry Dean CAlbert Dickeyj is in
despair because his engagement with June Wentworth CMary E. Paulj 'is
broken, and she even refuses to talk to him. Alimony enlivens the scene
h hlS popular song hit, '4Deep Ellum Blues."
John Gordon warns them to beware the Wentworth group, and to make
them forget flappers he introduces his shy little sunbonnet girls of the olden
days. Also the stately minuet of beaux and belles come back to haunt the
Gordon home as in the romantic days of yore. Again the boys and girls
join in the lively theme song with an equal determination to outwit their
elders who have forbidden their romantic escapades.
Allen Jackson sends Alimony away with the bulldog and after taking
the part of the Wentworth hired man, finds that opposition to his plans is
greater than he supposed. Ross Howard and Captain Winters learn the
Peddlars-Book Agent trade, and also gain admittance to the Wentworth
home. Finally all of the men are trapped in Aunt Martha's house, where
the girls are all partners in aiding their schemes.
John Gordon is determined to settle the matter once for all with his
estranged wife, Martha Wentworth, and finally all agree to the Armistice
of Peace. The clean, wholesome comedy of complicated situations comes to
a climax with a grand finale of all musical numbers.
Miss Atha Pinnick was dramatic coach for the play, and Miss Mae
Dorsey the musical director. Both of these teachers deserve a big vote of
thwarted. Captain Winters CMark Davisj has been chased by Aunt Mar-
Runyanj. Allen Jackson fJoseph Tapscottj has a great scheme for inter-

The society. organized in 1926 by the students of the Science Depart-
ment, has grown both in membership and enthusiasm during the year.
To create an interest in the scientific problems of the day is the pur-
pose of the society, and through the meetings the club has endeavored to
carry out its purpose. At the beginning of the year Jesse Glazer was ap-
pointed chairman of the program committee, and throughout the year many
interesting and educational programs, revealing astounding facts and exper-
iments. were presented. Many able speakers of the community were in-
duced to speak before the membership.
The club is indeed fortunate in having as sponsors Mr. Bronson, Mr.
Gross, Mr. Hodson, Mr. Jones, Miss Pinnick, Miss Fern Hodson, Mr. Har-
rell and Mr. Logan, all interesting speakers and faithful workers, who have
cooperated with the membership in making this year's Science Society the
best to date.
The society boasted of a membership of thirty-four. Meetings were
held every two weeks, on Thursday evenings, in Room 315.

Last spring the student body voted to amend Article I, Section 2, of the
Student Council constitution, which provides that representatives shall be
elected the third Tuesday of the first semester and hold office for one year.
This year, for the first time, half of the council membership was elected for
one semester. The second semester these short term representatives were
replaced by members elected for two semesters. Hereafter, at the begin-
ning of each half year, fifty per cent. of the council will consist of members
who have held office for one semester. ,
The first semester during the second period, the two large study halls
were operated by the students in the rooms. At the end of the semester
questionnaires were distributed to pupils studying in these rooms. The
answers indicated that a large majority of the students prefer the student
government study halls. The second semester the plan was extended to four

The Foreign Relations Club was organized last ymar under the very
eapable sponsorship of Miss Feryl Sipe. It has grown from a membership
of four to its present membership of twenty-four. The elub was organ
ized to give students a greater appreciation of the ideas and ideals of foreign
Round-table discussions are held at every meeting, at whieh time each
member reports on the subjeet he or she has seleeted.
Usually winning a debate is stressed, but in the Foreign Relations Club
debates are being held to find faets on both sides of sueh subjeets as:
"National Defense," "World Peaee is Improbable," "Philippine Independ-
enee."' "Should There Be a United States of Europe," and "Immigration
Causes Unemployment." These are earried on very successfully by the
efforts of Willxllr Conway, Portia DeWitt, Mary E. Kennedy., Elva Jones.
Gerald. Bond, Fred Bavender, Mildred Pitcher.. Clarenee Elliott, Valetta

CHEMISTRY ESSAY CONTEST
Our high school, for the sixth consecutive year, entered the Chemistry
Essay Contest, which is conducted under the auspices of the American
Chemical Society. The funds for the prizes are furnished by Mr. and Mrs.
Francis P. Garvan, of New York City, in memory of their daughter, Patricia.
The object of their contest is to promote intelligent appreciation of the vital
relationship of science to human welfare.
Of the eleven N. H. S. students who entered the contest seven com-
pleted their essays, which were as fine as any essays ever entered by New
Castle High School students.
Too much praise cannot he given to the various English teachers, and
to Mr. Bronson, who so willingly and tirelessly aided the contestants.
Every year in each of the six subjects very desirable prizes are offered
in both the State and National contests. In the State each of the first place
winners receives 320.00 in gold, a first prize certificate, and entrance to the
National contest, each of the second place winners receives a 35.00 gold
piece, a hook on Chemistry, a second prize certificate, and entrance to the
National contest, the third place winners receive a 852.50 gold piece. In
the National contest each first place winner is rewarded with a four-year
scholarship, with all expense paid, to any approved college or university in
America, and 35500 for living expenses.

The Senior Hi-Y Club was organized in N. H. S. in 19283 its sole pur-
pose being to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and com-
munity, high standards of Christian character. -
At the time of organization it consisted of approximately fifteen boys.
However. through the able leadership of William Jones. the high school
sponsor.. and Julius Thorn, the Y. M. C. A. sponsor, the membership has
steadily increased until now its enrollment numbers approximately fifty:
Sophomore-s., Juniors and Seniors. The club meets every Tuesday evening
in the Y. M. C. A.. and it is at these meetings that the plans for the activities
of the following week are formulated. In the past year the organization has
responded to any call that has been issued to them for the aid to betterment
of the community.
Among these "good Samaritan" acts was the collection of broken and
unwanted toys throughout the eity. Through the generosity of the local
firemen these toys were repaired for distribution-through the medium of
the Hi-Y boys-among the children of the city who might not have tasted of
the happiness and joy of Christmas time. This custom, originated two
years ago. has become an annual event, and the Hi-Y has pledged itself to
By the way of diversion the club has sponsored nearly a dozen social
affairs in the past year. all of which have been huge successes.
The credit of the progress made in the past year belongs to its student
officers. both of the first and second semesters.
Mr. Hooker is a graduate of But

athletics. When he came to N. H. S
he found athletic conditions in a
very bad state, but after he was

few years we have had unusually
good teams in basketball and foot
ball, noticeably football, since we
have gone through 23 games with
out defeat. He is head coach here,
and we hope that he remains such
for many years to come.
Wilbur Allen, our assistant bas
ketball coach, was one of Butler's
quintet. He was a clever aid to Mr.
ORVILLE J. nooxsn Hooker, although this was his first
year at coaching. He had control
over the second team, and is now coaching spring basketball as preparation
for next year's squad.
Mr. Harry Reid is an able and efficient assistant in football. He has
done creditable work with Hooker and teams for two seasons. With his
help this spring and next fall another good team is expected to be devel-
Mr. Fred Goar, the track coach, has his mind divided between track
meets on the athletic field and dates on Fourteenth street, but at that he
serves his purpose well. Mr. Coar has been with the school for several years
as track coach and boys' physical director.
Our tennis coach, Mr. Glen O. Harrell, is having quite a time getting a
team organized. Tennis is a sport that has been practiced here only within
the last three years, and Mr. Harrell has coached several good teams, and is
expected to have even better teams this year.

THE UNDEFEATED SEASON
On the bright Sunday morning of Sept. 1, a group of would-be foot-
ball players bravely made their way to the training camp, where they were
to stay two whole weeks without any sodas, candy, girls, or other harmful
sweets. K. Y. Miller, being rather girl-struck anyway, tried to end it all by
drowning himself in the pond, but all his attempt at suicide brought him
was a broken canoe and a bumped nose. Dale Dakins' foot was broken dur-
ing an exceptionally rough practice, and Dale was forced to stay out of the
line-up the entire year. Thus ended football camp.
Rushville was our first opponent. The Lions had the intention of get-
ting a good feast of Trojan meat, but much to their chagrin the meat was
found to be too tough, and the Lions returned to their dens suffering a
43 to 0 defeat.

Wilkinson decided to do what Rushville had attempted to do, but had
no more success than the preceding team.
The crowning moment of the season came when the Horses stepped all
over the Bearkittens, and sent them scurrying home, by the tune of 12-0.
Next came the strong Huntington men, who were the first to score
against the Trojans, but we won by a good marging the final score being
28 to 7.
The highly rated Anderson Indians were the next to fall before the
Trojan machine. Despite the fact that this was our first night game, the
clock-work precision of our team ran as smoothly as before. In this game
the team received more serious injuries than in any other game of the
season. McGinnis, our veteran left end, received a broken arm, which
kept him out of the last game of the season. Lawson, our plowing fullback,
was taken from the game with an injured knee, and Rowe, fleet halfback,
suffered a bruised leg muscle. Although costly, we won a decisive game,
46 to 0. The lights seemed to have had their effect, for our team ran wild.

In the following three games the Trudgers ran up high scores, by de-
feating Manual 37 to 0-Lebanon 32 to 6-and Greenfield 55 to 0. In
the Greenfield game, our Freshman team swung into action for their first
appearance in a scheduled game, and proved "too toughi' for the Tigers,
scoring a touchdown and holding the Greenfield boys to one first down.
In Connersville we found our toughest assignment. lt was our hardest
game since the one with the Bearcats. The Trojans faced a keyed team in
the Spartans, who were playing their last game of the season, and who led
the Trojans for the first time that they had been headed throughout the
season. After a last half rally, the game ended 7 to 6, with the Trojans
Sarantos was finally able to fill the place of the left end. We were to
play Kokomo, and there were numerous injuries among the players. K0-
komo had one of the best teams in the State, therefore both the Trojans
and the Wilrlcats would have to battle to the end.
New Castle received the hall on the kick-off of this game, and then he-
gan a struggle up and down the field. The half ended with neither team
having scored, and the second half Roller Rowe made a touchdown on a

Lawson-Good for four or five yards when neededg also a good punter and
McGinnis-A tin man who played four games with a broken arm and was
too stubborn to admit that he was injured. Chuck will be missed next
season very much. He was one of the best ends the Trojans ever had.

The 1930-31 Trojan basketball team was without doubt the best quintet
ever produced in the history of N. H. S. A record of nineteen wins and
seven losses was established, what was considered by State experts as the
second best team in the State of Indiana.
The Trojans ended their season by being defeated by the State Muncie
Bearcats crew, in the Regional tourney at Muncie, 23-21. Muncie continued
the next week-end by winning four games at Indianapolis, thereby gaining
the State title. None of these four games proved to be as hard or none were
as close as the New Castle struggle. It certainly is an achievement to be
second best in a field of 792 teams, and "Our Boys" should be highly com-
plimented for their showing.
Both the local Kiwanis Club and Rotary Club gave banquets in honor
of our Trojans. At the Kiwanis meeting Everett Dean, of Indiana Univer-

sity., was the principal speaker. Dean saw the Muncie-New Castle Regional
battle, and said our boys were a better team, but were out-lueked.
The Trudgers defeated, during the year, Hagerstown, Hartford City,
where Hartford's new gymnasium was dedicated, Rushville, Lebanon, Mun-
cie, Anderson three times, Horace Mann of Gary, Kokomo, Winchester,
Greenfield, Rochester and Connersville.
Highlights of the season consisted of a 26-16 win over the Bearcats,
three times winner over Anderson, winner of the An-Ne, Ma-Ha blind tour-
ney, held at Marion, and overwhelming wins over Kokomo, Connersville,
and Horace Mann.
The Sectional tournament proved to be a set-up, even after several of
the county teams had threatened to run away as Sectional champs. Knights-
town, Straughn, Spiceland, Mt. Summit were defeated in order named.
Huffman, Rowe, Wllite, Thoman and Dakins were placed on the all-county
Robert Stranahan, local sports writer, picked the green and white 'to
win the State. '4Stran" was congratulated by many, after the final game
had been played, for being able to select a team that came mighty near to
carrying out his predictions. Stranahan stuck by the Trudgers all year.
Although our team was a machine that would have missed any part of
its valuable machinery, there was one cog that possibly stood above the rest.
This player was none other than Vernon Huffman, all Big Ten Conference
guard. "Huff" played a real game. Always fighting, always smilling. The
best of a trainer, and never complaining. Besides, Vernon makes a scholas-
tic average of around 98. Coach Hooker has said, "If all my boys would
not worry me any more than Huffman, basketball would never be a hard-
ship on a coach. He is a real boy and one who will certainly make good

LAWSON WHITE MERCER DAKINS HUFFMAN
Our Seniors on the squad were Roller Rowe and Mark Mercer. Roller
played four years, with his last one probably his best. He was picked by
sports writers as the all conference center. Mercer was a good pivot man,
and will be missed greatly next year.
Bobby White was elected captain after the Rochester game. Bobby was
a good fighter and fans everywhere admired his good sportsmanship.
Ten varsity sweaters were awarded to the tourney squad. Chenille
letters were awarded to five members of the "B" squad.
Wilbur Allen, former local star, coached the second team. The team
probably established a record in losing one point games, seven in all. Many
of the Colt squad have bright futures, and will no doubt be seen -on the first
squad in the near future. e
The squad consisted of: ,
Roller Rowe, center, a player with a lot of natural ability. Had hot
and cold nights. Against Anderson scored eight field goals.
Mark Mercer. center, pivoter de luxe. Showed well in Sectional tour-
ney and Greenfield game. Mark always tried hard and could be counted
on to do his best. -
Dale Dakins, floor guard, first year on varsity. Played a slow, careful
game and was very consistent. Dale could be counted on to take care of
Billy Thoman, forward, Sophomore. Billy came through and has a
great future. Always trying. A real player and a real fellow.
ROWE KERSEY DAY BICKMAN THOMAN
Vernon Huffman, guard. Little more can be said about Huff. Has
another year and we expect him to be better than ever. Highpoint man on
team, even though playing a guard.
Mid Day, forward, small and fast. Used when team needed a punch.
If Mid had size there surely would be no stopping him.
Bobby White, forward, and captain. A fighter through and through.
Bob should go great in his Senior year.
Harold Hickman, forward. Could he follow in? Ask some of the
back guards we played against. '6Hick" will give someone on first five a
real struggle next year.
Randall Lawson, guard. Lawson has great possibilities. Has another
year. Is a good trainer and splendid student. Showed best in Logansport
Bud Kersey, forward. Look out Muncie, here comes Kersey! Hurt
during year and had trouble regaining stride, but watch him go next season.

CAPTAIN ROWE CAPTAIN MILLER
The Rotary Club banquet, which took place a short time after the
football season was over, was given in honor of the very deserving team of
the past season.
The club awarded the squad a bronze plaque, bearing a picture of the
players assembled in a body, the names of our opponents., and the scores
of the games.
This award is a symbol of the outstanding achievements made by our
boys during the past season, and a token of appreciation to the players who
so assuredly deserve credit and honor for 'an undisputed State champion-
ship record. This is the first time in the football seasons of N. H. S. that
any team has had such a spotless record-no defeats and no ties-all
Maurice Goodwin, who acted as spokesman and toastmaster at the
affair, presented the award to Mr. Hooker with a word of praise for an un-
usually successful football season. In turn, Mr. Hooker, Roller Rowe, back-
field captain, and Pierson Miller, line captain, expressed the team's grati-
tude for the Rotarians loyal support.
A similar award was given last year, but the 1930 record was even bet-
ter than the 1929 one, since the '29 team had one tie.
The two plaques hang now on the N. H. S. walls, symbolic of two of
the best high school football teams that ever stepped on a gridiron.

much needed education in this day and age of speed and competition
Classmates and Friends:
We the Class of 1931, are graduating from the New Castle High School
with the hope that we have accomplished something in our young lives. We
have spent four short years in high school, learning the fundamentals of a
For indeed this is a day of speed and competition, to such an extent
that the need of education to compete and fight the problems of today, was
never before so necessary and essential.
If President McKinley should visit us now, since his death in 1896, he
would be amazed at the swift progress we have made. The automobile, the
radio, the airplane, all have been completed in so short a space of time. We
are moving so fast that we are dizzy and are losing the power to think clearly
and to concentrate.
So we are only ready to begin our work in life. This is the beginning,
but we believe that these years of high school have given us a foundation of
character and strength that cannot easily be shaken or set adrift.
It is impossible for us to thank our taxpayers, teachers, or our dear
parents and all who have helped us through. We can only show our appre-
ciation by doing good deeds and endeavoring to make our country better.
To send a child through high school, during this time of depression and fast
living, we realize, has not been easy.
To you students who are looking forward to graduation, don't waste
your time, but take every advantage of your opportunity to get the educa-
tion that is your privilege to take. You may sometimes think the way is
hard and that the teachers are strict and unreasonable, but it is only for
your good and you will need it and appreciate it later.
So far we have been more or less parasites, depending upon our par-
ents and others for support and the comforts of life. Now our chance is
coming to show them, their faith and interest in us has ,not been wasted.
Behind what we have, or have done, or are, is that basic matter-what
we may become. There lies our real value. Every person is a bundle of
possibilities and he is worth what life may get out of him before it's through.
You are worth more than you have. Your bank account is not a sufficient
index of your value. You are ,worth more than you are. What you are is
important, but it does not settle the questions of your personal worth.
Everything depends upon the direction in which you are moving.
We have chosen our class motto, "Forward, Upward, Onward." That's
the direction that we, the Class of 1931, are looking to, and isn't what we
are, but what we may and say with all determination will become.
Dear Class of '31, the road will not be easy, temptations will come our

And now, as we are about to take leave of the scene of so many happy
school days, we ask you to remember us as we really are, just Seniors. Not
"dignified" Seniors, not "sophisticated" Seniors, but just a group of girls
and boys who, after four of the happiest years imaginable, have achieved
their goals and are ready now for more difficult worlds to conquer.
