COMES T O NEW CASTLE
To the boys of the class of nineteen fortyffive who
willingly sacrificed their aspirations and cherished dreams
and some even life itself, the one factor of the world that can
never he replaced, to preserve for us the American way of
life and to win for all the people of the World the most pref
cious gifts of the orbit of life-the Four Freedoms-freedom
of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from Want, and free'
dom from fear, to these who have given up the happy care'
free school life to wage war against the rulers who would
destroy all peace of the vvorld, We humbly yet gratefully
dedicate this hook.

Grimey moved into New Castle High School on September 5 th,
bringing with him all the devilish tricks of a fullffledged Gremlin.
Now, Grimey is no ordinary Gremlin . . . He can get into more
trouble than any ten average Gremlins . . . Grimey is the sort of
gent that can upset algebra class as easily as Latin 11, where he
is an artist with a spitball . . . The only time he is a real gentleman
is when he pays his respects to New Castle's lighting men . . . Wheiu
it comes to clubs' Grimey just can't resist turning up the gas in home
ec and burning the candy, or throwing a monkey wrench in the
works in the Machinist Club, and in sports he moves the baskets
when the ball is in the air, and releases the air from the footballs . . .
Grimey is just the sort of individual that is always in trouble, just
the opposite of a real Trojan . . .

are a few of the problems that seem to inter'

Our principal and deans are ready at all
times to help us straighten out these problems.
They are courteous and understanding. Often
they spend much time talking to us as an old?
er, better experienced friend.
When we start sleeping overtime each
morning and therefore getting to school a lit'
tle late, our deans are forced to crack down
on us for our own good, although it may seem
unfair to us at the time.
Perhaps the work that we remember best
is the great job they did during registration
and in scheduling our classes.

GRIMEY SAYS, lT'S Tl-IE
To cause youth to live more fully is the
aim of the public education. Youth can live
more fully only in the degree that he canbe
useful to his fellow men. The personal value
of any person is not measured by his physical
composition but in accordance with the unique
contribution which he makes during his time.
All types and classes of folk can be measured
by this formula.
Every girl and every boy in every class'
room situation must be given the opportunity
of equality of growth. Each is a unit unto
himself which must be cultivated and trained
with a definite goal of good citizenship-of
ability to live in our democratic state. Let us
train the child!
Basic training should include moral eduf
cation which determines the stamina and en'
durance of any people. Qur laxity as a nation
morally must be overcome if we are to mainf
tain our rightful place among the nations.
Workfexperience in every area of a child's
training is necessary. A progress of work to'
ward a successful culmination of a project
P ge Twelve
gives that feeling of accomplishment which is
necessary to the natural, normal growth of
any child. In English the telling of a story, in
math the finding of a square root, in Indus'
trial Arts the constructing of model planes, in
home making the baking of a pan of light
rolls are all practical experiences. These and
many more under the direction of sympathetic
teachers help high school folk to build up projf
ect after project of work success.
The educational program of guiding the
student into the channels for which he is best
suited in abilities and aptitudes is still in its
infancy. Guidance programs and guidance
personnel are just beginning to be a functional
part of every educational center. We have
been sluggish in the entire realm of human
Let us view the child in the light of his
many potentialities against the background of
opportunities which our age and the incoming
age afford, and from that location work to'
ward his ultimate goal of usefulness.

PRINCIPAL GF TI-IE TI-IING
While our nation now girds itself for a final all
out effort for victory in the war, our thoughts turn
naturally toward wholesome, constructive, and sucf
cessful living. The opportunity to practice and reap
the rewards of successful living is the natural inherf
itance of every human being.
As members of the class of 1945, you will play
vital roles in the postfwar period. Your attitude,
your thinking, and your action will help to shape
the course of events in the near future. Your
achievements, your serving of mankind, and your
making this world a better place in which to live
will mean success for you and for all others with
whom you come in contact.
Remember that success in its truest sense is a
journey and not a destination. Much of the fun and
enjoyment of life is realized by planning for success
and traveling toward it. Human understanding, bef
lief in eifort, and the enjoyment of working with
and helping others, will make your journey inter'
esting and vital.
Education has placed within your hands the tools
for successful living. If you use them wisely, you
will actually live all the days of your life.
WITHOUT TEACHERS TO PICK
Our History teachers: Miss Rupley, Miss
Love, Mrs. Eden and Mrs. Wayman, start
with ancient history and hring it up through
the history of the European countries to the
start of our own. They teach the history of
the United States up to and including the
present time. Courses in civics and economf
ics are also offered .... Algebra, geometry,
trigonometry. Yes! you've guessed it-our
mathematics teachers-Miss Fern Hodson,
Mr. Deardorif, Mr. Snider and Miss Crr ,...
Miss Leakey, Miss Ratcliffe, Mrs. Kienly, Mrs.
Rogers, Miss Arford, and Miss Ritter super'
vise our grammar, correct our spelling, listen
to our interpretation of literature. Miss Ar'
ford also has a very fine speech department
and radio class. She is head of the English
N SCHOOL WOULDN'T BE ANY FUN
Mr. Hodson is our physics teacher. An'
swering questions about light, sound, and elecf
tricity are just a few of the many duties he
performs cheerfully. Students have always
remembered Mr. Bronson for his many field
trips and his taking two points off for having
no margin .... The delightful, enjoyable
Four Arts Show was created by the combined
efforts of Miss Manifold, Miss Dorsey, Mr.
Burr, and Mr. Chenoweth. Miss Manifolds
art class provided colorful scenery
Marionette show. Miss Dorsey's choir pref
sented a scene from a Mexican fair. Mr.
Burr's dramatics class gave "My Man", which
was an original presentation with beautiful
costumes. The musical background for the
show was furnished by the orchestra under
the direction of Mr. Chenoweth, not shown.
. . . Miss Mabel Hodson keeps the students
engrossed in Latin with interesting tales of
the Romans. "Buenas Dias, todos,', says Miss
Smith, one of our Spanish teachers. The oth'
- 'A ' s Pogue, not sho n, is also our Business
Miss Roney helps the girls select patterns
and materials for clothes suitable for them,
and teaches them good grooming. One of the
outstanding features of the year was the boys'
cooking class under the direction of Mrs.
Fisher, our foods teacher. In home nursing
the girls learn from Miss VVright hovv to care
for the sick, become experts in child care, and,
in short, learn to be model Wives and mothers.
. . . Mr. Kinder teaches machine shop. Here
the boys learn to operate the various lathes
and electrical equipment. Need a ticket to a
school sport? Mr. Vickers is the man to see.
Remember the school paper you got every Fri'
day, well almost every Friday? This was due
to the hard Work and push of Mr. Green'
street .... Mr. Soderberg teaches related
mathematics, shows the girls how to repair
light fixtures, and make useful things from
wood. Have you seen book ends or corner
shelves made of wood running around in some
boy's arms? This Wood working is under the
guidance of Mr. Baker. Mr. Brooks' boys
learn about scientific farming, the rotation of
crops, and how to judge livestock .... Mr.
Rockhill's specialties are stenography, typing,
and machine operation. Mr. Fessler turns the
minds of the students to commercial arithf
metic and retailing. Bookkeeping, shorthand,
and typing are Mrs. Waggoner's field ....
Students enjoy Mr. Emerson's class bc'
cause they cut up frogs and worms. Miss
Garst's field trips to catch butterflies and inf
sects are enjoyed by the students. Under the
direction of Miss Andrews, the girls keep
physically fit. Mr. Warren instructs our stu'
dents in the rules of safety .... Mr. Castor's
right hand gal is Marilyn Winning, who is
also very helpful if someone comes to the off
fice with questions and problems. Ruth Best's
and Martha Smith's smiling faces may be
seen in the Superintendent's office. Mary Tor'
grimson is the one who takes our stamp orders
with our money and then sees that we receive
our stamps and bonds .... Our football coach,
Mr. Janzaruk, brought forth a veryfine team.
Mr. Plunkitt coached our boys to win the
"Big Four Tourney". Mr. Hay is the man
behind the men behind the teams. Cur coaches
introduced two new sports to N. H. S. this
year: wrestling and boxing.
We come to the end of a perfect school
day .... Free at last ..., The girls on our
staff relax .... Roger grins for the camera.

This year of 1945 we found ourselves not
suifering penalties as freshmen and not just
merely being tolerated as sophomores, but tak'
ing a full and active part in responsibilities as
a junior class. Assuming a major part of these
responsibilities were our class oihcers-presi'

Andrews, secretary, Jimmy M. Lee, treasurer,
Edward Sumpterg they were elected in Februf
ary. Our advisors, Mrs, Fred Wayman and
Mr. Horace Burr, working with chosen com'
mittees, made the annual Junior Prom one of
the most successful in school years. A commit'
tee for choosing senior jewelry for our class of
'46 was appointed in March. We shall never
forget our year as juniors, but we are looking
forward with much anticipation to our senior

No longer is New Castle the casual, carefree, isolated
place we knew three years ago. Already twentyfone boys
and one girl from N. H. S. have given their lives. Some
we knew well, and others slightly. A short while ago
some of them were attending school, others were intent
upon their careers. All had postponed their plans, given
up those little liberties, so that we might continue to livc
in a free America.
These twentyftwo young people served their country
well. It is up to us, the future guardians of America, to
see that they did not die in vain.

Through the ages music has been an im'

therefore to have a wellfrounded education it
is quite necessary to give music its rightful
place among the other arts and activities.
New Castle high school fully believes this and
offers its students the opportunity of particif
pating in one of the best equipped and di'
rected music departments in the state.
Through talent tests those with musical
ability are discovered and to them is given all
the help and aid possible in fitting them for a
life with music-whether as a career or avof
cation. Instruction under some of our state's
finest musicians is olfered along with the privif
lege to associate and play with others in the
band and orchestra.
Those who sing find their place in the glee
club or choir. By appearing before clubs and
civic groups we showthe public what prog'
ress is being attained and give experience fo
those who take part. V

the credit for these fine organizations which

to the recessional at Class Day our marching
and concert band has played for all athletic
and school activities of major importance.
With Bob Allen at the head our shows be'

made up for those seven o'clock rehearsals.
We were at every basketball game to lend
color and harmony in our green and white
uniforms, as well as playing for many other
outside organizations. Our two concerts and
Crescendo Varieties gave us a chance to show
off our versatility with such numbers as "Seo
ond Symphony" and "United Nations Rhap-

in a band made ours a very happy season.

a fine performance. They took their first bow

The Dramatics Department has been ex'

which is the biggest step forward, offers un'
limited opportunities for anyone who is inter'
ested in dramatics. The year opened with our
participation in the annual Four Arts Show.
This was much different from anything we
had attempted in the past. Our Christmas
pageant, "Why the Chimes Rang," was very
impressive. In addition to these larger producf
tions, the members of the department have
given performances of short, onefact plays all
through the school year. We are rapidly
reaching our goal which is 150 performances.
These performances include some of the most
famous onefact plays in world literature.
One Week was spent giving public performances
of these plays nightly in the "Little Theater". "The
Clodu represented a more serious type of drama, the
tragedy. 'LUncle Tom's Cabin," another of the plays
presented in the "Little Theater", proved to be very
interesting and enjoyable. L'Triangle" was given as
an example of the lighter drama.

In New Castle High School, the HifY Club was
started in 1928 by Julius Thorne with an original mem'

doubled and the club is open to any junior or senior

The purpose-L'To create, maintain, and extend

school featuring Rev. Russell Ford of Cadle Taber'

different transmitting properties of the body.
TIIE IVIACI-IINIST CLUB
Founded in 1941, Machinist Club was based on
the idea that all boys in vocational machine trades are
eligible for membership. Junior boys are junior mae
chinists and senior boys are master machinists. The K.
of P. lodge has worked with the boys by giving them a
recreation room for each Thursday. In the spring the
boy who has an outstanding character is given mem'
bership in the lodge.
We meet weekly, and in addition we have had the
Dad's and Son's Game Supper, hamburger fries, and
skating parties. Our purpose is to further community
projects, as scrap drives and bond and stamp sales.
