In September of 1940, we, one hundred green, gawky freshmen, entered the
soon-to-be well-loved halls of New Haven High. Mrs. Delia Redman and Miss
Harriet Daniels were destined to start us on our eventful course. At that time,
we did not elect class officers, but we were well represented in Student Council
by Tom Baillie and Alvena WagstaH.
As we entered into our sophomore year, suave and sophisticated as most
sophomores are, we were greeted by Mr. Leslie Pensinger, who took the place of
Miss Daniels as one of our sponsors and soon captured the friendship of every
student with his likeable ways. Leading us on our course were: Bill Goeglein,
president, Pauline Werling, vice-president, Jean Larson, secretary, and Joseph
The fall of 1942 found eighty-two of our original members, able to escape the
inhuman treatment of former upper classmen, swaggering along feeling very
superior. The juniors, commonly known as financial wizards, took over the can-
teen, and with the aid of Mr. Pensinger supplied the school with the best of candy
and ice cream wrappers. Bill Goeglein. president, Waldemar Heller, vice-presi-
dentg Ladonna Robinett, secretary, and Pauline Werling, treasurer, were the ofli-
cers who led us on our path of crime against timid under classmen, who shud-
dered and cringed at our approach.
As our junior year rushed on, it was discovered that we had in our group
champion girl athletes, who succeeded in winning the girls' basketball and vol-
leyball tournaments. One of these girls, Joan Krug, left near the end of the year
to live in Wisconsin. Also, several of our boys played on the basketball team.
In May when the birds are singing, flowers blooming, and a young man's
heart is turning Cperiodj, the juniors held a prom in the gymnasium for the sen-
iors. There was a period of weeping and wailing, as we realized that the happy
day when we could rule the roost was soon to come. A lovely and popular jun-
ior, Polly Werling, presided as queen of the prom.
In September, 1943, a group of sixty-five seniors, dignified and serene, march-
ed into the building we loved so well. As we entered, our voices lowered, and
we gazed in tenderness at the sights we had known for so long and wished that
the many who had joined the armed forces or accepted positions in defense fac-
tories could still be with us. Also, we mourned the death of Donnabelle Kitchen,
who had died in August of that year. Then, having proved to all by our actions
that we were worthy of the title, seniors, we proceeded to make it known that we
were the most outstanding of all senior classes. Teachers were amazed by our
brilliant accomplishments and our superior intelligence. Lower classmen stared
with envy as we planned parties.
Bill Goeglein again was elected president, John Meyers became vice-presi-
dentg Gladys Springer, secretary, and Betty Kuhl, treasurer. Due to a sudden
illness, Gladys was unable to finish the year, and Jean Larson took her place as
secretary. Norma Milliman again became one of our yell leaders.
Our activities for the year had an excellent start on October 22, when we
held a hay ride and wiener bake at the Oliver residence. This was soon followed
by a Christmas party on December 23, in Mr. Pensinger's room. Games were
played, and everyone received a gift. In February, the class decided to use some
of its money to provide dancing lessons for its members. A committee composed
of Norma Milliman, Barbara Seibert, and Jay Hodson soon had things well or-
ganized, and Mrs. Nell Green, of Fort Wayne, gave the members of our class
twelve lessons during the last twelve weeks of school.
Soon our journey will come to an end. We will leave this building that has
housed our youthful ambitions, joys, and sorrows, but we know that as we trudge
on into a world it has prepared us to meet, we will remember in our hearts the
best days of our lives.

The Student Council is an organization recognized for its significance and
ability in organizing the activities and improvements of our school. It is com-
posed of twenty members-the president and vice-president of each class, and an
elected member from each home room. The Council is under the sponsorship of
Miss Harriet Daniels.
Several devotional services were presented to the student body: the Fall Con-
vocation at which Reverend Thurman Morris was speaker, a Christmas program
given by the Latin department, the 'fChristmas Story" presented by Masque and
Gavel and an Easter Devotional Service with Reverend Herbert Wiese as guest
A major project of the Student Council was the purchase of a Plaque honor-
ing the alumni who are now in the service. The plaque was dedicated at a very
impressive Armistice Day Program.
The Council, by presenting a series of educational movies to the student
body, raised money to buy two hundred song books with band scores for the gen-
eral use of the school. .
The annual Snowball Hop was given the twenty-first of December. The gym-
nasium was elaborately decorated with a blue false ceiling and with small ever-
green trees, which enclosed the dance floor. The recreation room, decorated by
a committee of Sunshine girls, was used for games.
A Freshman Convocation was given to acquaint the newcomers with the
activities of our school. Two School Sings, which proved to be very popular,
were sponsored by the Council. In the spring a commercial program was pre-
sented free to the entire student body.
The Student Council also manages the monitor system, the selling of lunch
tickets, and the traffic in the halls.
Suns ine Society
"With love in my heart, forgetting self and with charity for all, I will make
the object of my life, helpfulness and kindness to others." This line from the
Sunshine creed expresses the ideals of the Sunshine Society.
The membership this year increased to ninety, and the year was started off
with a party for all the high school girls.
On Tag Day enough money was collected to send S110 to the Riley Hospital
Fund. This was the largest gift ever contributed by a single society in Indiana.
At Christmas a banquet was held in the home economics room for all the
members, and several members sang carols at the homes of the sick and aged.
In the second semester a trip was taken to the Lincoln Museum, a skating
party was held at Bell's Rink, and boxes were sent to boys in the service.
Miss Rowena Walker and Miss Virginia Royster are Sunshine sponsors. The
officers for the year are: President, Alvena Wagstaffg alternate president, Kathleen
Goegleing secretary, Kathleen Mack, treasurer, Alma Voddeg and Georgianna

Heading our roster this year were Miss Barbara Germann, sponsorg Alma
Vodde, president, Iona Bohn, vice-president, Betty Campbell, treasurer, and Mar-
tha Riebersal, secretary. The members have been unusually active this year, in-
asmuch as they managed the canteen for the month of February, decorated the
gymnasium for the county tournament and had a hike which was followed by a
Wiener bake and then a hayride. Meetings were held the first Wednesday of
The Girls, Athletic Association attempts at all times to further the interest in
girls sports in and out of school, and to encourage healthful activities for the mind
and body in order that we might become better citizens in the world of tomorrow.
All athletic interests of the girls were sponsored by the G. A. A., including the
intramural and class tournaments.
The main feature of the year is the banquet at which certain girls receive
special recognition for extra participation in all sports. A winged foot is award-
ed for 150 points, the letter N for 250 points, and the national plaque for 350
points. Those sports in which points can be obtained are: basketball, baseball,
archery, hiking, tennis, tumbling, skating, volleyball, swimming, and all other
Letterman s Cfub
In the spring of 1942, under the direction of Mr. Harold Smith, the Letter-
man's Club was formed. A constitution and by-laws were adopted. These by-
laws, in a nutshell, said that any person who earned a letter in baseball or basket-
ball was to be admitted in the UNI' Club.
The club has been inactive for the past year but with the addition of baseball
as a major sport and with the basketball season over, it is functioning again under
the sponsorship of Mr. Carl Buffenbarger. In January new officers were elected.
They are as follows: president, Joe Bolyardg vice-president, Wayne Judtg secre-
tary, Devon Frane, treasurer, Elvin Meyer. On March 1 the "N" Club took over
the school canteen.
The new members of the HN" Club are: Wayne Stellhorn, Richard Adams,

The band department of the school, under the direction of Mr. Gerald H. Mil-
ler, consists of the Concert Band, the Training Band, the Junior Band, and the
Beginning Band. The Concert Band has a membership of forty-seven. Six
members will graduate this spring. These members who graduate will leave
openings for ambitious members of the Training Band.
The Concert Band is organized as a school society. Officers are: Virgil
Asher, captain, Russell Griffiths, Quartermaster, Jean Larson, secretary, Beulah
Smith, librarian, and William Mclver, student conductor.
The band uses the merit system. Merits may be obtained by attending re-
hearsals, playing in ensembles, or playing solos. Demerits may be erased by
practicing the required time in the band room.
The honor of playing for the opening session of the North Eastern Indiana
Teachers Association held in Fort Wayne in October was given to our Concert
Band. Other special appearances were made at the Casad Ordnance Depot as
well as before our own P. T. A. Many times the band provided the accompani-
ment for group singing at school. A special school concert was given early in
the fall, and the closing formal concert for the year in May.

The instrumentation for the band is unusually complete. They have pur-
chased three new trombones and a pair of pedal tympany. Many students have
acquired instruments of their own.
The Concert Band played for all the winter season school activities. They
played at all the home basketball games and for all pep sessions.
Many activities were curtailed because of the shortage of critical war mater-
ial. In the place of practicing after school the band has an extra hour a week.
These practices are held Thursday of each week.
The highlight of the winter band season is the formal banquet in May. At
this time merit awards are given to the individuals who have earned them and
thc seniors arc given their letter awards.

Masque ana! Gave
Masque and Gavel is still quite a new organization around New Haven High.
Although organized only a year and a half ago, it has greatly increased its activi-
ties. The eligibility requirements for membership are: C11 The student must be
of junior standing C29 He must be nominated by club members and approved by
sponsors and C35 He must have done superior class work.
Miss Peggy Sue Leininger was the sponsor of Masque and Gavel when the
club was organized, but in January of this year she left us to get married, so Miss
Evelyn Knull is now taking her place.
Our activities this year have been carried out on a wide scale-a skating
party September 31g on October 18 and 19 two one-act plays, t'Life With Willie"
and "Not Quite Such A Goose" presented to the entire student body Cafter which
there was a cast partybg and December 7 a Pearl Harbor Day program was pre-
sented. Probably the biggest and most elaborate program was given at Christ-
mas time when the Christmas story was presented, the script for which John
Meyers wrote. On February 7 we gave a program for the P. T. A., and on Febru-
ary 14 we initiated new members.
Masque and Gavel tried something new this year when on March 3 a Truth
or Consequence show was held. The contestants were chosen from each of the
home-rooms, and proceeds were used to buy war stamps to be awarded the win-
A point system has been established whereby a member may get an emblem
after he has earned thirty points. A member may earn these points by appear-
ing in plays, and, of course, by assisting as stage managers, costume designers, etc.
This is to present to you the 1944 "Mirage" We hope you will keep and
cherish it in the years to come. In order to meet the added expenses brought on
by these trying times we found it necessary to earn money. We did this by tak-
ing charge of the canteen for five weeks and during the county tournament.
Other students outside of the staff co-operated with us in getting this year
book together. We wish to thank all of you for making this year book one of the

BUFFY SPURS THE TEAM.
Gloria Heemsoth and
t'Elvie" is the tall, bashful junior who
holds down center position. He has proved
himself to be a good pivot man and a consis-
tent ball player. Elvie who has played two
years with the Bulldogs, was the leading
scorer on the team this year. He played his
best game at Hoagland, where he captured the
county's highest individual scoring record of
27 points in a single game!
t'Dick" is the handsome forward whose
height enables him to get those rebounds. He
proved his ability as one of New Haven's high
scorers during the Auburn game, where he
succeeded in getting 18 points. This is Dick's
second year on the team, and if he isn't in-
ducted into the armed services, many things
will be expected of him next year.
"Pinky" had his best game at Columbia
City, a game in which he scored 18 points
against the Eagles. Those snazzy side shots
and those push shots from the foul line make
him a player for the opposing team to really
kecp an eye on.
1 J furly
'tJoe" is that scrappy little guard who
keeps the opponents busy with his tough de-
fensive work. Those long shots and the fancy
way that Joe handles that ball make him an
outstanding player. Joe has had two years
on the team.
"Clem" is the tall and lanky fellow with
a tricky hook shot. Because of his 6' 3" he
has shown himself to be an able rebound man.
"Clem" has turned in some fine performances
for his first year with the squad. New Haven
could use more fellows with his height and
"Pap', has played two years with the
Bulldogs. His tricky one-handed shot from
the side will be greatly missed next year.
After his graduation he will be inducted into
the armed forces.
HHoover" has been on the team two years
and has proved himself consistent as a good
defensive man. To really condense it, we
might say he is Msmall-but mighty." No
matter what happens in a game it doesn't dis-
turb this bashful junior's cool attitude. With
two years of experience behind him he will
be worth watching next year!
i'Jackson," who was a reliable reserve,
can be counted on greatly next year when he
will put his practicing into practical exper-
ience. Watch for that surprising hook shot!
i'Cooney" is one of the Bulldogs t'tough"
players with the build that makes for a good
basketball player. The Berne game proved
to be his best game in this, his first year with
the regulars. Cooney likes his lay-in shots
from the side. Let's hope that a good basket
ball runs in the Stemmler family and he fol-
lows in the footsteps of his brother.
Dick is the smallest and quickest player
on the team. His favorite shots are taken
from the ten-second line. He almost saved
the day for us in the Berne game. This is the
first year on the team for Dick, but we'll pro-
bably see more of that fancy ball-handling
"Starl' likes his long shots. This cool
Junior player doesn't get excited because of
either the large crowds or the opposing team.
This is his first year on the team.
'ADick" is thc fast-working guard who
does not become easily riled in a game. His
teammates like the way Dick passes the ball
and keeps it going. Next year thc Bulldogs
will lose this promising player to the armed

This year we had another addition to the faculty in the athletic section. He was our
basket ball coach, Carl Buffenbarger, who led our Bulldogs through many a thrilling game.
"BuiTy,' is well-liked by all the fellows on the team, as Well as by the student body. He
first became interested in athletics at Decatur High School in 1932 where he played four
years of basketball, baseball, and track, and two of football. After his graduation from high
school, he attended Manchester College where he played four years of football and three
years of basketball and baseball. CHe tells us that as soon as football season was over he got
"hitched" and didn't continue the last two sports. Mrs. Buffenbarger is seen at every ball
game cheering the Bulldogs.J
He started his coaching career at Southport, near Indianapolis, and taught there three
years. He also taught two years at Franklin Township, also near Indianapolis, and one year
at Pleasant Mills, before coming to New Haven.
The basketball team had two new student managers this year-Lamont Stoneburner, sen-
ior, and Paul Morris, junior. Both boys are well-liked by the members of the team because
they are good-natured and handle their jobs efficiently. Their duties include: keeping the
basketballs clean, putting the uniforms away correctly, distributing the uniforms, taking care
of the softball and baseball equipment, and scouting the ability of the opposing teams that
the Bulldogs will encounter. Paul may continue his duties next year, but Bud, as soon as
he graduates, will leave to take up training with the Air Cadets.
New Havenls basketball games and pep sessions have been high lighted by the two attrac-
tive little yell leaders, who, in their second year of leading our cheering section, have intro-
duced many new and unique yells. Both girls have 'tsnappyu personalities and are small in
stature, which helps to prove the old proverb that "Good things come in small packages."
Norma and Gloria are well-liked by the student body. They have worked faithfully at
their cheering responsibilities and deserve the compliments given them. Norma is a member
of the Masque 85 Gavel, and takes an active part in the school intramural sports. She is a
senior. Gloria is a member of the G. A. A. and is a Sophomore.
